On The Verge Of The Unthinkable

Over the past couple of years, we have become accustomed to expecting the unexpected, but soon we may have to start anticipating the unthinkable.  In this article, I am going to be discussing a couple of potential scenarios that would have been unimaginable to the vast majority of Americans just a few short years ago.  Unfortunately, our world is now changing at a pace that is absolutely breathtaking, and many things that were once “unimaginable” could soon become reality.

Let’s start by talking about the record-setting heatwave which is making the epic megadrought in the western half of the country even worse.  Many western farmers planted crops this year hoping that weather conditions would eventually turn in their favor, but that has definitely not happened.  In fact, at this point, 88 percent of the West is experiencing at least some level of drought.

2021 has been the worst year of this multi-year megadrought so far, and last week was the worst week for this drought up to this point in 2021.  Old temperature records were shattered all over the West, and some areas were already seeing triple digits by 8 o’clock in the morning

The West is in the midst of a record-breaking heat wave this week, as all-time records were shattered and daily records broken in over a dozen states.

Even by desert standards, the heat wave in the Southwest is atypical. On Thursday, the National Weather Service in Tucson tweeted that the city recorded a temperature of 100 degrees at 8:14 a.m., the second earliest time in the day recorded since 1948.

That is crazy.

Can you imagine hitting triple digits before you have even finished your morning coffee?

Summer had not even officially begun yet last week, and yet new all-time record highs were being established all over the place

Record-breaking temperatures spread from California to Montana this week. On thursday, the all-time high temperature was tied in Palm Springs, California at 123 degrees, breaking the previous June record of 122 degrees.

Salt Lake City tied its all-time record high of 107 degrees. The old record was notably set in July — when temperatures are usually at their highest for the year in that region. This comes after daily record highs were broken Sunday, Monday and Tuesday in Salt Lake, each with temperatures exceeding 100 degrees.

We have never seen anything quite like this in the state of Utah.

More than half of the state is in the highest level of drought, and thanks to dramatic water restrictions farmers are being forced to choose which of their crops will die

With drastic limits placed on what little water he has, Tom Favero said he and many farmers along this west side of Weber County were forced to watch some crops die. “We’ve all made serious choices of what fields we can water and what we can’t,” Favero said.

Another Utah farmer that lost a lot of corn and an entire field of barley said that it really “hurts” to see his hard work go to waste…

Farmer Dean Martini pointed at one of his fields. “That corn there, where I can’t water, I don’t have the water. It makes me sick to see it go to heck like that.”

With limits on amount and time, he said there wasn’t enough water flowing to make it across his fields. While some of the corn dried up, he had to let a whole field of barley go too. “It hurts buddy. That hurts,” Martini said.

Of course, this is just the beginning.

If this summer is as hot and as dry as they are projecting, we could see catastrophic crop failures all across the West.

And that is really bad news because the state of California alone produces more than a third of our vegetables and about two-thirds of our fruits and nuts.

A few years ago, hardly anyone would have imagined that we would be facing a crisis of this magnitude in 2021, but here we are.  Paleoclimatologist Kathleen Johnson is quite “worried” about what will happen this summer, and she is warning that this drought is shaping up to be the worst the region has experienced “in at least 1,200 years”

I’m worried about this summer – this doesn’t bode well, in terms of what we can expect with wildfire and the worsening drought. This current drought is potentially on track to become the worst that we’ve seen in at least 1,200 years.

Now I would like to shift gears.

A few years ago, hardly anyone would have imagined that we would be facing a very serious computer chip shortage in 2021.  In particular, the most sophisticated chips are really in short supply, and what most people don’t realize is that “almost all” of them are made by a single company based in Taiwan…

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. chips are everywhere, though most consumers don’t know it.

The company makes almost all of the world’s most sophisticated chips, and many of the simpler ones, too. They’re in billions of products with built-in electronics, including iPhones, personal computers and cars—all without any obvious sign they came from TSMC, which does the manufacturing for better-known companies that design them, like Apple Inc. and Qualcomm Inc.

Because manufacturing those chips is so exceedingly complicated, other companies can’t just plop down new factories and start pumping out their own chips.  Business leaders in the U.S. are now planning new factories, but it could take quite a few years before they are up and running.

So even under ideal conditions, the chip shortage will not be resolved for some time.

But what happens if China invades Taiwan within the next several years?  This is something that U.S. officials were warning about earlier this month

Concerns are growing in Washington over the possibility that China could try to invade Taiwan in the next few years.

Top U.S. military officers have warned in recent months that Beijing might try to make the explosive move this decade, and recent saber rattling, including a Chinese military amphibious landing exercise near the island, is further raising the alarm.

Can you imagine the chaos that it would cause for the global economy if the primary supply of advanced chips was suddenly cut off?

According to the Wall Street Journal, TSMC currently makes “around 92% of the world’s most sophisticated chips”…

Its technology is so advanced, Capital Economics said, that it now makes around 92% of the world’s most sophisticated chips, which have transistors that are less than one-thousandth the width of a human hair. Samsung Electronics Co. makes the rest. Most of the roughly 1.4 billion smartphone processors world-wide are made by TSMC.

Without TSMC, the global economy as it is structured today would not be able to function.

So the fact that China is being more aggressive than ever with Taiwan should deeply alarm all of us.  For example, check out what happened just last week

China has flown 28 warplanes into Taiwan-controlled airspace, the biggest sortie of its kind since the Taiwanese government began publishing information about the frequent incursions last year.

The flights are widely seen as part of an effort by Beijing to dial up pressure on Taiwan, a self-governed democracy of about 24 million people off the Chinese coast that the Chinese government considers a part of China.

We should have never allowed ourselves to become so dependent on foreign chips, but we did.

And now experts are telling us that the chip shortage will last into next year under the best of conditions…

Dimitris Dotis, the Audi brand specialist at Audi Tysons Corner dealership in Virginia, summed up the situation to customers. “Almost all microchips that go into all new vehicles including Audi come from TSMC in Taiwan,” he wrote. “They expect bottlenecks in the supply chain to last through 2022.”

Of course, if China does decide to invade Taiwan, the U.S. military will respond, and that would mean no advanced chips for us for the foreseeable future.

In this article, I have shared just two potential scenarios which could soon plunge us into unthinkable nightmares.

Needless to say, there are many, many more crisis points that bear watching right now as well.

We have reached such a critical moment in our history, and I expect global events to accelerate even more as we head into the second half of 2021.

      The failure of the government and corporations to not step up production in the United States is another engineered create a crisis event.

      The CIA makes computer chips right in America, and Applied Materials also makes computer chips and semi-conductors, and so does Intel.

      As far as the drought, the water mismanagement is also a ceate a crisis event.

      Rick DeSantis is simply too anti-American to be president, like the other candidates are. Republicans,

      Free yourselves from slavery of the two-party system this Independence Day! 

      July 4th! Declare your Independence and stop being a slave to Democrats and Republicans that place defending Israel and corrupt politicians and government employees  over defending America from the enemies from within that violate the constitutional rights of the Sovereign –  We The People!

      Don’t Tread On Me! 

      Live Free Or Die! 

      Liberty and Justice or Bust! 

      Death to the Lawless Banana Republic!

      The U.S. military is going to spend $240 billion to build military bases in Central Asia, including Turkmanistan and Pakistan, and the G7 countries are going to spend $100 billion to transition impoverished countries over to renewable energy. The bases must be made out of gold.

      They sure are generous to other countries! Add to that that the people in the other countries hate them passionately! Maybe if they were as generous to American citizens, they wouldn’t be so despised! Just deposit $240 billion in my account instead. I will put it to good use. I just might even manufacture computer chips for you! Why didn’t anyone in the government think of this brilliant idea of mine?

      Any appearances of productive activity create a nuisance, if you are caught. Hide your work under a bushel. Whatever means you may have, if you are independent.

      Those, who create disasters, consider good and useful things a form of contraband and try to sabotage them.

      People in hea
      thcare, media, and government have not been hypnotized into assassinations through vaccinations, and I know that for an absolute fact because I have been repeatedly hung up on when presenting hard scientific evidence to people over the fraud of covid-19, the mythological virus.

      Recall that it was the nurses unions that were front and center demanding shut downs and lock downs until a vaccine was developed. Now there is a “vaccine” and what they have demanded to be forcefully injected into other people, they reject it for themselves. How hypnotized is that? It is just yet another one of the many complete bullshit excuses for psychopaths that absolutely refuse to take responsibility for their actions!

      You are not hypnotized, and you never were! You are full of shit! You had planned on overthrowing the entire country and now you’re busted! It wasn’t just the government that you wanted to overthrow though! You wanted to overthrow every small and medium sized business, every bar owner, every salon owner, every gym owner, every restaurant owner, and every home owner! You are evil psychopathic monsters! Wake up, grow up, and face the consequences! Let the Nuremburg 2 trials begin!

      DS – Excellent observation and advice.

    8. Anonymous says:

      There is not going to be a political solution to this.

      Or a military one, for that matter.

      Step outside of the box and look elsewhere for answers if you want to increase your odds of surviving coming events.

      Actually none of this is “unthinkable” it is happening NOW.

      A Chinese invasion of Taiwan ( Formosa) is quite likely IMHO. That China would win if not actively opposed by the USA is almost a given.

      As for the drought, I went 1 whole year with no precipitation…thank God my deep well did not dry up, this was in 2016-2017. I irrigated what I could, and took 5 gallon buckets to the young Muscadines.

      The mature NOBLE vines ( 7 years old) were not given any water, still got some crop from them, not as sweet, and not as much as other years, but fantastic to get anything…a highly recomended vine for the South.

    10. Andrea.Iravani. says:

      Oh, how could it be?! China that so miraculously eradicated China from the Pandemic that never was and that Sputnik Radio Show hosts held to the world as the gold standard in Pandemic and emergency preparedness now has problems at ports resulting in supply chain bottle necks and warning that it will take months to get past back logs and that Christmas will be met with supply shortages?! Oh, China, what happened to your magnificent handling and eradication of the pandemic that never was?! This reeks of Marxist sabotage tactics!!!
