Last week was a rather crazy one for the news feeds, with cyber attacks and “Comey memos” and a host of other wild mayhem, it may have been difficult for many people to keep track of it all. That said, there was one event that I think went partly under the radar, and I think it is an important signal for anyone concerned with the ongoing process of economic collapse in the U.S.
Generally, the American public holds very little vigilance when it comes to economics. They are distinctly unaware of fundamental indicators such as commodities demand, energy usage, manufacturing, imports, exports and international shipping, etc. What they do take note of, and what the mainstream news will tell them about in 30 second blurbs, is the state of unemployment and whether stock markets were down for the day or up for the day. These two “indicators” are the extent of the average person’s exposure to fiscal health.
This is why the Federal Reserve and the establishment have been meticulous over the past several years in their efforts to keep employment statistics highly manipulated to the positive side and why they have been injecting untold trillions into stocks around the world through various measures including no cost overnight loans.
However, over the past couple of years something has changed. As I warned they would do in 2015 in my article The Real Reasons Why The Fed Will Hike Interest Rates, central banks including the Fed have been backing off of stimulus measures and they have now begun a series of interest rate hikes. Look at it this way — imagine the economy has a terminal disease and the only thing keeping it alive is a highly addictive drug called “free money.” It’s a rather terrible life, barely worth living, but the economy still has a faint pulse as long as the drug is administered. Now, what would happen if the Fed suddenly cuts off the drug supply? Well, the economy will die in a very frantic and horrible way.
Low interest rates and Federal Reserve loans represent the purest form of the free money drug, even more so than the bailouts and QE. And now, those interest rates are rising, and the drug is being taken away.
These marginal rate hikes might not seem like much — .25 basis points here and .25 basis points there. And they are not much, unless you are a corporation borrowing billions of dollars at a time so that you can stave off your exposure to quadrillions in derivatives debt and so that you can purchase massive shares in your own stock to keep its value artificially elevated. Cycling this borrowed cash and paying the Fed back is rather easy for such corporations as long as the loans are essentially free. But when they have to start paying interest on that cash, even at a low rate, the costs add up at lightning speed.
ANY interest rate hikes in this environment make borrowing from the Fed untenable for corporations seeking to prop up their stocks and the stock market at large.
In my estimation, based on previous Fed measures such as the removal of QE from the system in 2014, it takes around six to eight months for the effects of policy shifts by the Fed to become visible on the main street economy and in equities. I believe we are about to see the effects of interest rate hikes on our system within the next couple of months.
I put very little value in stock markets as an indicator of anything. In reality, stocks are a fraudulent circus based on perceived value and perceived demand rather than true value and demand. In most cases, stocks crash in the FINAL phase of an economic collapse, not in the beginning phase. If you decide to start preparing for a crisis after a stock market decline then you are probably too late.
I am revisiting this topic here because I want to remind people that the full and tantamount blame for any economic crisis (and the final phase market crash) in the near future is placed on the Federal Reserve and international banks. All future shocks to the financial system were made possible because the establishment and the Fed have gutted our economy, stuffed it with the fluff of fiat stimulus and left it to lumber aimlessly since 2009.
Now, because of the Fed’s efforts, stocks have been rising for quite some time with only a few moments of obstruction, due again, to their policy shifts. These efforts have conjured a 20,000 point Dow Jones, but nothing else positive for the economy. The one constant, though, has always been low interest rates.
With interest rates increasing, I would point out that market behavior has changed. The meteoric rise has stalled. In the past few months stocks have barely budged 1 percent either up or down per week. Except for last week when something strange happened; markets suddenly dropped nearly 400 points in a single day. Why? Well, that is a subject up for debate, but the majority of mainstream news outlets will tell you that it was all Donald Trump’s fault.
I have been warning since long before the election that Trump’s presidency would be the perfect vehicle for central banks and international financiers to divert blame for the economic crisis that would inevitably explode once the Fed moved firmly into interest rate hikes. Every indication since my initial prediction shows that this is the case.
The media was building the foundation of the narrative from the moment Trump won the election. Bloomberg was quick to publish its rather hilariously skewed propaganda on the matter, asserting that Trump was lucky to inherit an economy in ascendance and recovery because of the fiscal ingenuity of Barack Obama. This is of course utter nonsense. Obama and the Fed have created a zombie economy rotting from the inside out, nothing more. But, as Bloomberg noted rightly, any downturn within the system will indeed be blamed on the Trump administration.
Fortune Magazine, adding to the narrative, outlined the view that the initial stock rally surrounding Trump’s election win was merely setting the stage for a surprise market crash.
I continue to go one further than the mainstream media and say that the Trump administration is a giant cement shoe designed (deliberately) to drag conservatives and conservative principles down into the abyss as we are blamed by association for the financial calamity that will occur on Trump’s watch.
Last week’s sudden market bloodletting is important in this regard; 400 points down is hardly a flesh wound to a 20,000 point Dow, but the media’s reaction to it was very revealing on what the future has in store. Multiple news outlets responded by immediately connecting the drop to Trump and the absurdity surrounding the “Comey memo” — a memo which no one in the public has seen proof of. The claim is that this level of turmoil around Trump might lead to impeachment and that the threat of impeachment would kill the stock market bounce which the media also claims was driven by Trump’s promises of corporate tax cuts. It’s a lie built on another lie.
It is interesting to me that the mainstream media never said the market drop was caused by “Comey’s turmoil,” or by “The Washington Post and The New York Times’ turmoil.” No, they called it “Trump’s trumoil.” Last week’s stock dive was, in my opinion, the official launch of the Trump collapse narrative. The establishment was beta testing it for months, but now, the program has gone live.
Every single stock decline from now on, as well as the ultimate economic crash, which will become visible to the public in short order, will be blamed on Donald Trump and conservatives by extension. As I said, he is the perfect scapegoat.
I have been very critical of Donald Trump recently, and it is my view, according to the evidence and his swift retraction of nearly every promise he made to the voters during his campaign, that Trump is controlled opposition. But, I would never lay the blame for our fiscal decline at his feet. Trump does not have the power to create that kind of disaster; only the global banks have that power. I’ll say it again — the Federal Reserve is raising interest rates into a major financial downturn. This will be the trigger for the next phase of collapse, not any drama surrounding Donald Trump. Everything else, from Comey to North Korea, is distraction.
The Fed has done this before. In fact, the Fed has a habit of raising interest rates at the onset of economic instability or right in the middle of a downturn, as it did in 1928-1929 triggering the Great Depression, and in 1931, adding fuel to the fire of financial catastrophe. These particular catalyzing policy actions are partly what Ben Bernanke was referring to on Nov. 8, 2002, in a speech given at “A Conference to Honor Milton Friedman, the Paul Snowden Russell Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus, On the Occasion of his 90th Birthday.”
“In short, according to Friedman and Schwartz, because of institutional changes and misguided doctrines, the banking panics of the Great Contraction were much more severe and widespread than would have normally occurred during a downturn.
Let me end my talk by abusing slightly my status as an official representative of the Federal Reserve. I would like to say to Milton and Anna: Regarding the Great Depression. You’re right, we did it. We’re very sorry. But thanks to you, we won’t do it again.”
Ben Bernanke finished his astonishingly honest assessment with a lie. They are indeed doing it again… but this time they have made sure they have a president and an entire political ideal to blame it on.

Nothing to see here, move along.
I heard it was Trump’s fault we lost Vietnam. I always thought it was because our military smoked pot and were child molesters?
Our military draws from all walks of life. They take the best of the best and sometimes a
few bad apples too. If you never had to serve you would not understand. The draft was a
fact of life in the past. Since 1973, many have skated by, enjoying all the benefits without
having to experience what other people did. Go to war or go to jail was a reality for many
in the past. I knew guys that smoked pot and hash because they wanted to get out of the
military. Those were guys that volunteered. The military is not for everybody. I had a platoon sergeant that was one of the last guys to be drafted in the early 70’s. He liked it
and made a career out of it.
The democrats have already started blaming the problems of obamacare on Trump, all this was expected, it’s what democrats do…
Brandon, another good article. Although I’ve given up on Trump for other reasons, I know who to really point the finger at: Wall St. and City Of London [ROTHSCHILDS]. I fully expect everything to blow up during the summer. Will also be a LONG HOT SUMMER. Everyone get everything you need now while you still can. Keep stacking.
Brave- Simple question. I hear what you are saying. Who is going to watch ” the castle”
while everyone still has to work for a living? You spend money, effort and energy stockpiling things only to have some scumbag break in when we are trying to make a living.
Invest in precious metals. Especially lead.
We all know this is coming. Here’s the thing:
The ignorant left already are ignorant, and will never wake up. Even despite their masses, they LOST the election.
he thinking folks who vote for Trump (pls spare me. No, Trump isn’t perfect, but we didn’t have the choice between perfect and Hilary. I get it) ALREADY know the whole narrative and gambit (gee, anyone have a clue that vile Obungler DOUBLED the debt?) in place, and won’t be swayed. Moreover, if the fascist left pulls the plug now, this may well be like the recession Reagan had early in his administration, where people only remember the last few months.
The banksters and fascist left pull the plug, I will be all over how OBAMA set this disaster in place.
TEST, all of us know all too well what the left is planning and what they’ll say. I’ve never hated libturds more at any time in the past than I do NOW. Let them bring it on. I’m so sick of their shit I can’t see straight.
Trump is a small time investor that his daddy made rich. Trump taking credit for the stock market he robs is like the fox taking credit for the chicken house it robbed.
Quit being covetous and do something worthwhile with your life instead.
You should be more concerned with Deep State dirtbags like McConnell, McCain, Graham,
Ryan, and all the other scum that have been living in DC hotel rooms for the last 30 years.
If they are regular guests on Meet The Press, they are suspect.
The Leftists will seize on and magnify everything that can be construed as negative and blame it on Trump.
Unfortunately they will receive a great deal of support from those supposedly opposing them but really acting on their side while doing it.
It is easy to see why so many Americans are putting their faith in gold, siver, ammo, & freeze-dried food.
Brian, no gold or silver for me but I do invest in everything else that I know will help me survive.
I dont care!
Took my cue from Atlas shrugged a few years ago and thats my course, PERIOD!
Not busting my hump to fund their crap and ill be damned if i contribute in any way shape or form
Well at least it won’t be Bush’s fault anymore.
If they can bracket Bush/Trump together in some way, they surely will!
Anybody who believes that narrative to blame Trump is an avid MSM Viewer Idiot. Those dopes always get it wrong anyway, so it really doesn’t matter what they think. Garbage in – Garbage out.
I now have 2 pregnant Doe’s on the back property and a Nubby Buck. Here in Florida Doe’s will also have fawns in Jun or July. They are getting their bed nesting areas ready. I’ve started laying out some apple flavored corn at dusk. Its like watching them come in for the daily feed buffet. Now the single Hens turkeys are trying to eat the corn I left early out for the deer because of a rain storm earlier. I usually only put the good whole apple corn out about hour before dark, when the deer usually show up. Put It out too early and the squirrels, turkey, birds like doves and cardinals are in for the kill. The cracked corn is good for them, which I put out in the AM first light. Keeps them busy in bits and pieces, and smaller to chew and eat. I sometimes have 16 squirrels at a time, just 10 yrds from the Cottage. Anything left over during the night and the Raccoons and Possums are getting the rest. Because its all gone by daylight.
So when you get your BOL Property out in the boonies, you can have an instant Protein Food plot by just buying a few 40# LB bags of corn. The critters will come in to feast daily. Store all your grain and feed in metal trash cans, and I use bungee cords to lock the lids down. I can see the animal scratch marks on the lids. They can surely smell the feed inside.
You are a sneaky one! Those poor does won’t know what hit them. Will you be eating their blood too? They say it is very nutritious! I would not recommend eating it raw. You can still get plenty of nutrition cooking the congealed blood.
Great to see your post!
Im looking at getting a few goats,, friend of mine has some nice meat goats, not sure what breed but the nannys consistently throw twins, so is sorta a twofer, real prolific too, thought about getting milking goats but then you gotta milk em, too much work, i like stuff i can sorra forget about once in a while.
Mother raised goats for awhile and was milking them. It did seem like a lot of work but they provided milk and cheese. Not bad! I don’t drink much milk everyday but the goat would provide a daily source of milk. It would be a great asset if you had children.
Louisiana Eagle ?
Nailbanger, back in 1973 a book titled “None Dare Call It Conspiracy” by Gary Allen was the book that woke me up. My late beloved wife was the one who sold me on prepping. I’m still stacking and won’t stop. I’ve never regretted it for one minute. I don’t contribute to any libturd shit either. Let them bring it.
We all know the economic risks of the sovereign debt. A crisis will come sooner than later because we are witnessing the break-down of government in the U.S. (and other countries) on a scale never seen before.
Then on the political front the NWO oligarchy is setting up the world for a complete collapse of civil society by attacking populism and trying to destroy Trump. Their message is clear “…People and their wishes don’t count any more. People have no say in anything. Big money rules…”
So each day I continue prepping. Added to my long term vegetable stash. Upgraded my M14 CQB rifle with a new Primary arms 1X-8X scope with ACSS. .
I find it hard to envision using a scoped M14 in close quarters fighting effectively against firearms actually designed for the purpose.
Anonymous, watch the movie Daylights End. “When a rogue drifter on a vengeful hunt stumbles across a band of survivors in an abandoned police station, he reluctantly agrees help them escape the mobs of undead”.
If you watch carefully you will see a “famous” YouTube channel personality. Big gun channel. The main star is running an M14 with a red dot and is really effective.
Everybody knows that if it’s in a movie it must be true.
Anyway, the movie is worth watching.
Sorry, but most of my real life combat experience if from Vietnam, not the movies.
But I’m sure Hollywood actors are much more realistic than real combat against a real armed enemy trying to kill you from a few yards away.
12 gauge bullpup loaded with 00buck, they wont die if they are wearing armor but they wont get up either
Nailbanger, if I know the fight is close range I will have my Saiga 12, with a 20 round drum, in my hand. She runs like butter. If my adversary is primarily armed with hand guns she is my weapon of choice.
If I can only take one gun running out the door my AR-10 has got to be the choice. I hope nothing ever happens because I’ll die of old age before I can decide which gun I want to use. I have 3 that I love.
If loving a gun is wrong, then I don’t want to be right.
You make a great point Anonymous. I have been through it quite a few people on the M14 forum. My problem is red dots do not have diopters so I can’t focus and the dots are fuzzy. I had an Eotech (turned it back in for the rebate) because I could not focus it. Many people like me are using the 1X with the ACSS illuminated reticle as a red dot substitute for CQB. I keep both eyes open while looking through the scope just like I did with the Eotech.
In addition that ACSS reticle design is fantastic. It has really improved my shooting out to 300 yards. I like that the ACSS works with both .762X51 and my 5.56. I just read the Primary Arms patented ACSS reticle will be making its way into the Trijicon ACOG line. Its that popular.
Rabbitone, I love Primary Arms and have two of their scopes.
The ACSS reticle is outstanding and PA is overall one of best values around. I cannot say how much I love that reticle. I had the Primary arms 1X-6X scope with ACSS on my AR 10 but just recently “upgraded” to the Vortex Viper PST 2.5 – 10x32mm FFP Riflescope. At the time I wanted the 1×8 but they had a blemish run sale on the 1×6 that I could not pass up.
I now have Vortex Viper PSTs on my 2 go to riles. I still have a Primary Arms on my long range rifle because it has unparalleled built in ranging capability for FAST ranging of both static and moving targets.
One day only, MidwayUSA 00 Buck 250rd case $65 stockup! Trekker Out. Semper Paratus.
Thanks for the heads up. My O.P. loves to chow down on Sellier & Bellot Ammunition 12 Gauge 2-3/4″ 00 Buckshot.
There won’t be a collapse for bankers, Feds,and cops. They will be rich
M14 gor CQB?
Sorta big aint it?
Nailbanger, certain targets might be wearing hard body Armour?!?! Even if the 308 round does not penetrate it will take the target out of the fight.
In Iraq, a marine got shot at close range with an AK, while it didn’t penetrate it knocked him out of the fight. The 308 is a more powerful round than the AK.
I agree, the 308 round is ideal long range round, but while I can still handle the recoil I love it close range as well.
I like the 308 round myself, have a few AR platform rifles, got one you would love, has a flash supressor on it that keeps it at the 16″ minimum to be legal, can unscrew it though and barrel is only 12″, with the collapseable stock its a shorty, not as accurate at longer ranges but packs a punch, but wont knock you down, put a good large body JP comp or a triple port on it and the muzzle rise and recoil goes away almost completely, that was the only thing i didnt like about the M14 style rifles, not as many aftermarket parts either, plus with 80% lowers almost anything is doable..
A flash suppressor for a short barrel to make it legal length has to be pinned and welded in place so it can’t be unscrewed.
You may want to look into the laws about this before you end up facing a ten year and ten thousand dollar penalty for not having it that way.
Or register it as an SBR.
Yea,,, come n get it if you want,,,,,??
Feel the same way about machine guns and sawed off shotguns?
They come and get those all the time when people decide the law doesn’t matter and, interestingly enough, virtually everyone ends up surrendering without a fight when faced with death and goes to prison instead.
If you’re going to own illegal weapons at least keep your mouth shut about it on public forums.
Thanks Anonymous, did not know that.
You assholes gave weapons to drug cartels and give bombs to terrorist, you dont do shit about terrorist bragging on facebook or twatter, but your going to do something to me? Yea right
Nailbanger, I have been looking for a good flash suppressor for my AR-10. My gun smith would not install a simple bird cage suppressor for me when he built it.
If you have any suggestions, it would be appreciated. Thanks.
Personally i like the JP large body compensators on the AR10 style rifles, paired with the reduced recoil an AR already has its a winner of a combo, can literally watch your hits through the glass.
Thanks a million Nailbanger. I will definitely check these out and talk to my gun smith. These look great!
Guys who shoot competatively swear by the JP hardware, not cheap but some of the best
Nailbanger, The M14 evolved into the Springfield Armory(SAI) M1A. The M1A cones in 3size barrels the Socom (16in), Scout(18.5In) and Full Size(22in) with variations in each size. I have the M1A Socom CQB version (search on these words to see my rifle). Yes it weighs 9.2 empty but I prefer the 7.62x51mm round and will put up with the added weight to get an effective CQB platform. As for big lengthwise- on my shoulder its 36.5 inches long.
Bet a 8.5″ AR pistol barreled upper with an AR 15 lower with a collapsible stock would make a nice little CQB weapon. “WARNING” it’s not legal, but I bet when the Schumer Hits The Fan, nobody will give a Schumer! I’ve heard they’re still not bad at a 100 yards, and handy to carry while wearing a pack and carrying a sidearm. Trekker Out. Si Vis Pacem Para Bellum
Nice rifles for sure,,, im just a weeny when it comes to recoil
Trump seems to be a willing participant in his own scapegoating then. How else to explain the rosy 4% growth projections?
If in fact Trump was selected as a scapegoat for a planned financial collapse with hyperinflation, and the Trumpers will be guilty by association, it is not conservatives that will be blamed, it is white people. So the policy of white genocide takes off with a bang. As blacks get frustrated by real poverty, they won’t be able to identify a conservative from a liberal, they’ll attack white people because we voted for Trump and that’s why his baby’s momma is screaming at him that there’s no pampers or formula for his hungry baby, and it is all your fault; you, racist white mother Phuck.
B from CA another 1000 thumbs up.
“As blacks get frustrated by real poverty, they won’t be able to identify a conservative from a liberal, they’ll attack white people because we voted for Trump and that’s why his baby’s momma is screaming at him that there’s no pampers or formula for his hungry baby, and it is all your fault; you, racist white mother Phuck.”
That is why I moved away from the Baltimore/Washington corridor to Central/Western Maryland. That was my biggest Prep. My next move (God willing and the creek don’t rise)will be out west because Maryland’s days are numbered. It is slowly becoming New Jersey.
Justice and B: As is other cities: New Orleans, B’ham, Atlanta, Augusta, Ga. Detroit , Chicago, L.A., Memphis, Jackson, Ms. Newark, and others. Do a google search: cities with largest African Am. pop. Get out now if this applies to you esp. if over 50%. My city has just under 40%.
I like ours,,, less than 1%
Yep 98% white in my area counties wide. Blacks don’t like the Country where the Confederate Flags still flies proudly. And these socialist commies will die trying to take it away. They ain’t that brave. Lots and Lots of Biker gangs out here in the country armed to the teeth. lol
About 0.5% population is black on my island.
To be honest with you I gave up trying to figure
someones race years ago, it is so mixed up here.
I just wait till I hear them talk.
Ya, doesnt really matter anyway, i know more stupid white mother fuckers who think that being a democrat makes them similar to god than anything else,,, most of my local friends are sicknof this crap, theres folks i know close by who are obliviousvthough, they are the ones who will be a problem, i am at the point that i dont give a shit anymore though, not sure exactly how that ones gonna play out but if the weong fuckers push the wrong buttons it wont be pretty, never has been.
So you see where the state wants to raise the TAT and keep most of it for rail? They also want to raise the fuel taxes and keep that for rail too,,, buncha stupid libtards,,, i swear i fuckin hate these fuckers
I got banned from 2Ahawaii web site for my remarks about Democrats you refer to. For you mainland guys 2Ahawaii is our local gun nut organization.
Yes Nail, we live with some really stupid people.
Me too, was asking all the fatheads there why we arent forming militias,,,
Got chastized by everyone then banned, this is why i will dump my mags and ask questions of the survivors before i put a 230g jhp through their face
Laura Ann, my city is on the list you mentioned; 67% according to the latest census bureau figures. I know enough people here who will let me know early enough whether something is about to happen so I can get out early.
I’d get out. Foolish to stay on a mound of fire ants.
Trump s budget calls for a nice cut in entitlements.
I hope this is true, slow the gravy train
The Trump budget has to get passed by Congress before it does anything.
And I doubt there is enough Republican support for it in the Senate to get it through.
“Maryland’s days are numbered. It is slowly becoming New Jersey.”
Its a damn shame too. Maryland adjacent to Delaware on the Delmarva has beautiful land, wide open, lots of horses. Its a polar opposite to Baltimore. The catalyst to kick off civil unrest with those most likely to use violence is a cut in food stamps.
“As blacks get frustrated by real poverty, they won’t be able to identify a conservative from a liberal, they’ll attack white people …” You can stop right there. Their won’t be any analyzing. Someone needs to come up with a GPS application of crime/demographics for traveling color coded according to both (which are generally one).
I really liked Solomons island.
There was a restaurant at the very end
of the road, I’m not sure if it was the Somerset or
St Mary’s side.
Brown paper on the table all the crab you can eat.
Shrimp, clams, Cheap beer.
The building was not level, but
lots of food for like $22.
Stay out of big cities. Real life
If they can get out to you with only a half tank of gas, thats too close.
I would totally agree. For those paying attention, it is plain as daylight. As I warned years ago on this site, we were told in no uncertain terms to prop the system up ‘so the magic negro could flounce his way out of power on a carpet of red roses’ and then let some ‘old white dude’ take the blame for the collapse.
It will quickly be turned into a race issue because they know the black population is the least educated and most animalistic in their reactions to things. All they will know is this: they were getting lots of money for doing nothing, and then all that fell apart when Obama left office. Unlike whites, who are very divided along education and class lines, blacks tend to come together in a very tribal way. Look at the LA riots or OJ. Damn the facts, ‘OJ be innocent!!!!!!’
The best you can do at this point is to get to white (or Asian) neighborhoods that are defensible. Are there natural features that can be used as road blocks/moats, where troops or private security can hold the line?
They found OJ innocent because they were afraid the Blacks would burn LA down.
Waiting, after what the apes did to south central LA in ’92, damn right they were afraid to convict OJ. They also had constant political pressure aka jury tampering from the NAACP and the black mayor they had at the time.
Hey Frank, I would like to break your comment down here a little more.
“Unlike whites, who are very divided along education and class lines, blacks tend to come together in a very tribal way. Look at the LA riots or OJ. Damn the facts, ‘OJ be innocent!!!!!!’
My Observations, ** Blacks only come together if the subject matter is common for the benefit of each individual, like in a riot situation, where they act in a Mob mentality. They are not coordinated, just every black man for himself, but in a Mob like fashion. One black will just soon rob or kill another black man a block away, who just looted a store for a pair of Jordan sneakers. There is no honor amongst Blacks period.
Black will steal from their own mother if given the chance. Its every man or woman for themselves, they just are collected together more in a Mob fashion, but the unit soon breaks down a few block away from the rioting and its back to everybody for themselves again. They just use the Mob theory as safety not to get caught, and more opportunity in numbers as a mob to get away with a crime. Not all but the mass majority are like this.
YPDB, any time that the apes riot, they’re doing it for themselves and don’t care about anything else. The last paragraph in your post really hit the nail on the head. I should know, having to live in a black majority city.
New Jersey Emergency Alert System ‘Accidentally’ Sends Nuclear Warnings To Some TVs
“Coming just a month after Project Gotham Shield, a major nuclear detonation drill in the New York-New Jersey area, a false alarm that went out to some people’s television sets Tuesday might have scared some in New Jersey.”
KY Mom, what do you make of that event or the story?
The other day I just got home and the neighborhood’s lights went out. I thought EMP and went into a drill. This is really embarrassing to admit, but I’m not really prepped for a short term power outage.
I was hungry so I made a cold sandwich. I wished that I could easily heat it up, but could not. When the power came back on I ordered a one burner propane stove (my little Butane Beauty) and 1 month of butane canisters. I keep them easily accessible in my kitchen.
As God is my witness, I will never have a cold sandwich again!
Just more cheap junk cooking stuff sitting around to trip over when you could have bought Bit Coin instead. In 20 years you might Become a bitcoin millionaire. Maybe not but it will be much more likely than a month long power outage.
You might…when your canisters run out and you can’t get more.
Scottishgirl, I have other cooking methods but none that are FAST and EASY at night. The butane stove top also is great for OPSEC, in that I can cook indoors. I have propane for cooking outside. I have a great Rocket Stove.
Number 1 Method for Cooking: An induction stove top run by deep cycle batteries and an inverter. But I will not put one of my inverters at risk for a test. I lost one years ago messing around and I won’t loose another unnecessarily.
With respect to Rocket Stoves, who keeps a supple of sticks around?
If the SHTF, I don’t want to go outside and start traipsing through the woods picking up sticks. Because of my aversion to wandering around outside looking to forage sticks in order to cook, I thought it best to find a new method of cooking that I could count on for the initial post shtf event.
Also, 90% of my preps are packed away. I was not ready for short term emergencies. I needed to have certain supplies that are easy to use and ready to go at a moments notice.
Justice, even in a post-SHTF scenario, keeping butane or propane canisters stored properly is a risky proposition. I have an old Coleman propane campstove and some propane stored for it, but I also have Kelly Kettle Base Camp Model stove which uses ‘nature’s fuel’. There are several old trees in my backyard from which I have collected a lot of sticks and have stored away in the shed. My first choice is the Coleman. When the propane runs out, I switch to the Kelly. “Nature’s Fuel” NEVER runs out. It’s best to have more than one method for cooking in any post-SHTF scenario.
And they will
Justice.. Cold sandwich? You poor thing. lol
You better get used to no refrigeration either. And you better have at least 5 ways to cook food.
Camp stove, Propane Gas Grill with a pan burner on the side, alcohol stoves. Peak-1 stove, Camp fire, Chiefs gel burner containers, Coleman fuel and stove, rocket stove set up and fuel, bags of charcoal and small charcoal grill.
Buy loads of canned food with 2+ years of expiration dates, and multiple can openers, they will fail one after another, cheap China crap.
You don’t need God as your witness, if he cared about you, you would already have at least 5 ways to cook food, think for yourself. Praying never saved anybody, unless by some coincidence or stroke of luck, so get busy prepping and save yourself.
YPDB, good advice. With a rocket stove or Kelly Kettle you can always get your hands on ‘nature’s fuel’ which never runs out. All the other items will eventually run out so it’s best to keep all your options open in any post-SHTF scenario. I had a dozen of those can openers until recently when one broke and now I have 11. You can also use a good fixed-blade knife or even a hammer and chisel as a last resort to open a can. I’ve got enough canned goods to sink a battleship, LOL!
Thanks for caring,YellowPokaDot Bikini. I appreciate the cooking suggestions.
My next months preps are allocated towards water. But in July I plan on getting a GAS ONE Outdoor Triple High pressure Burner with Stand Stove Propane Gas Cooker With CSA Listed Adjustable 0-20PSI High Pressure Regulator and Hose (4ft) and 2 more 30-Pound Propane Cylinders.
I am really relying on my Rocket Stove and my Induction Stove Top.
I believe God answers prayers.
Keep working at your preps. A variety of canned foods and quality can openers are good items to have.
We may never know why the nuclear warnings were accidentally broadcast to some TVs.
My husband (military vet) has told me the military drills for scenarios they believe can or will happen. I assume it is the same with the government.
We live in a rural area and power outages are common here.
I like my stainless steel Kelly kettle. It will use just about anything for fuel, cardboard, twigs, leaves, pine cones, etc. it heats fast and will boil water in just minutes. I have the little cook set that goes with it. It is quality made and will last for many years, if cared for properly.
I use the sunoven (on the deck) often in the summer to cook and bake – cakes, stew, beans, ribs, chicken, corn bread, etc. Unlike cooking on the grill, the sun onen is sealed and dogs don’t even smell food cooking. If you don’t have one, look into it.
Thanks so much for the information. I will get bother the Kelley Kettle and the Solar Oven (as soon as I can budget for it).
May 7, 2016 TRUMP: The NWO Cabal’s Nuclear Option—To Declare A US, Inc. Bankruptcy
The Donald is the TRUMP Card of the International Banking Cartel There is no other way out for the bankrupt U.S. Corporation except an “Orderly Default”?
Money has no intrinsic value so they never run out of it. They just create more to keep liquidly. There will be no default but rather an orderly, or disorderly devaluation of the existing money supply due to increasing the supply. If the increase in money supply matches the destruction of wealth by defaulting loans and its subsequent slowing of money velocity inflation can be held in relative check. This money creation does shift wealth concentration up the economic ladder increasing the delta between the “haves” and “have nots”.
Did you account for this? May 15th, 2017 Financial Weapons Of Mass Destruction: The Top 25 U.S. Banks Have 222 Trillion Dollars Of Exposure To Derivatives
In other words, the exposure that these banks have to derivatives contracts is approximately equivalent to the gross domestic product of the United States times twelve.
The government, the press and the political parties no longer have any relevance for me. They all lie and I depend on them for nothing nor for information. Most of us know that Trump is being set up to fail by the banks and both parties. I see a third party rising out of this mess and/or a civil situation that will mess up whats left of this once great country. Get ready for a long hot summer.
Agree: the mainstream parties are just projecting a hologram that has nothing to do with reality. Ignore them and pay attention to what you see with your eyes.
If anyone would think about it for a split second, you would realize that an economy cannot fail in a matter of months. People who have filed bankruptcy have to know they didn’t get themselves into that predicament in just a few months. It took several years at least. 1835 under President Andrew Jackson the USA had a balanced budget and no national debt; and since that time it has been running rampant. Obama doubled the debt in the eight years he was in office, and then handed the mess over to President Trump. Obama didn’t give a crap about spending or anything else that might benefit the USA. Obama was too busy trying to bring America to third world status. Trying to bankrupt the USA with all the “gimme” programs, especially to the illegal aliens. Lets put blame where blame is due.
The stock market is rigged. It is way overpriced. Google, Facebook, Twitter et al produce nothing of value, they could disappear tomorrow and the world would go on just fine, but the market would drop dramatically. You would notice if Ford, Boeing, Intel, ADM and like industries quit providing products. Expect a crash. Don’t expect hyperinflation, expect depression. Yes the MSM will blame Trump. But so what? They are after him in any event, good or bad. Fascist Democrats aren’t worth keeping around, they aren’t worth listening to, so I don’t. I take comfort in the fact Democrats will suffer the most when SHTF.
Rellik- Sound wisdom, brother. Everything you said made all the sense in the world to me.
Trump won by a c–t hair. He will not be as lucky next time. Just as he is trying to undo
everything that Obama did. The next Sanders/Biden/Gabbard/Booker/Oprah/Zuckerberg
will try to undo everything Trump did. Keeps going from one extreme to the other. Keeps
getting uglier. Expect Daisy BB guns to be outlawed if Oprah becomes president. We are
becoming the laughingstock of the world. 93% of the media is left-leaning. Its amazing that
Republicans now control the government in spite of that. Pains me to say it but the Republicans always blow it when they get control. With the Deep State trying to oust Trump
at every opportunity, look for things to really start accelerating at light speed. The swamp
cannot be drained in a few months or even a few years. They are like barnacles. No, thats
too nice. They are like hemorrhoids that won’t go away. Give Trump credit. He tries to fight
them wherever he can. He may have to go along with them on some things. There will not
be a dull minute as long as he’s at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Are you referencing the female Hawaii Congressman who wrote the Stop Arming Terrorist Act? She is 100% correct on this issue.
Tulsi Gabbard | Stop Arming Terrorists Act, End Regime Change And War In Syria
Yes. I am referring to her. I give her props on that one single issue and nothing else.
She will be propelled thru the Democrat party like a torpedo. One of the new faces.
Watch them combine new faces with “star power” (i.e.celebrities) in the next presidential
election. Of course, by that time, we may not have much of a country left.
That one issue very well may be the catalyst for WWIII.
Thats why war and mass EMP events would be ideal, talk about a reset,,, that oughta do it.
People say oh you dont want that, honestly, i dont give a shit anymore,,, and nothing anybody does or says will make me, im just sick enough of it all that i would cheer if everything went to total shit,,, psycho? Mebbe,,,,
Retarded? Definitely, sick and tired of being sick and tired
And yet another gold commercial…….right there at the end. How much do I have to pay to have an author write about, say I don’t know, maybe green colored squirrels, and plug my new website at the end of the article that my squirrels will be worth millions once the crash comes? So sick of the commercializations of collapse…….buying things that mean nothing, you cannot eat etc. I want red meat not a damn good coin, I need antibiotics or a family member dies, not a gold coin. I have what you NEED and you have what I NEED, not some worthless piece of metal that I cannot even use to shoot!
Hmmmm……,green colored squirrels?!Damn,and I thought I was prepped,well,time to get me some “green colored squirrels!
You are all going to find out that Obama did not go away. He’s coming back to rule the world. He has been conspiring with the deep state to destroy Trump. He will become UN secretary General in a few years. The next president will be a democrat, who will hand over our sovereignty and out Constitution to the UN. Then my friends you will know that the bible has been correct all along…as you witness the Anti-Christ stepping unto his throne as the ruler of the World.!!!!!
They can try,,,,
Here is a visual for everybody. Mar 20, 2017 US Debt of $20 Trillion Visualized in Stacks of Physical Cash
Showing stacks of physical cash in following sequence: $100, $10,000, $1 Million, $2 Billion, $1 Trillion, $20 Trillion. The faith and value of the US Dollar rests on the Government’s ability to repay its debt. “The money in the video has already been spent”.
You people must be so sad that you can’t blame Obama for Trump’s failure at being a competent leader. I you patriots talk about America and this fool and his family is in bed with Putin. Pathetic.
