      all the political, flat earth, planetx, isis, war, is just to keep you distracted from the monetary and economic collapse that is looming over us, and the only thing most american idiots can talk about is who is going to win the election , like it matters

        And that’s good. Can you imagine the Chaos if the sheeple woke up? We have been given close to 5 extra years to get out S**t together. I’ve paid off bills I never thought I could. Got more stuff than I ever imagined. How much 22 ammo do you think has been stockpiled in the last 8 years? How mch FD food? 8 years ago Wal-Mart didn’t sell 25 year food; now they do. Lots of people have done huge amounts of stuff.

            how long will they keep as emergency food?

            • 2isone

              Some freeze dried food in cans are good for 25 years. Pouches have a shorter life span… Mountain House guarantees up to 12 years. But dehydrated and freeze dried foods are a base layer for any serious preparation along with buckets of staples like beans, rice and wheat.

              Most people build food storage from short term to long term, stocking up on canned chicken soups, etc. first and then moving into the more expensive long term food storage. I personally think it may not be a good idea anymore to wait to stock a long term pantry. I have a feeling the price of food is going to skyrocket soon.

              Many people here will also tell you to start a garden. I am really not a green thumb person, and I am doing it. God help those plants;-).

        Oh please! The DOW was up over 250 points today. Unemployment as calculated by the government is at 5%. Real Estate prices have never been higher. Wages are creeping back up. Where or where is this economic free fall occurring?


        • Archivist

          In “Realsville” as Rush would say.

        • PWYPreach

          The DOW is up….because America is now basically considered the only place semi-safe enough to park money.

          Unemployment is low…because they “cook” the numbers. IF you counted everybody who wants a full-time job, but can’t find one above minimum wage (or pays more than welfare does), the unemployment numbers change drastically upward.

          Real estate prices are skyrocketing…because they just repealed FIRPTA for the benefit of foreign retirement/pension funds, and at the same time, England and Australia have passed laws discouraging foreign real estate investment.

          Wages are creeping back up…snails race faster.

          Where is the freefall occurring? Every village, town, and city that is not considered a viable place to park wealth…that and every place that the various government agencies would like to see go out of business using their excuse of “global warming.”

      “Zombie Ships” – Why Global Shipping Is Even Worse Than The Baltic Dry Suggests

      “One glance at The Baltic Dry Index’s collapse is all that most need to see the painful state of the global shipping industry.

      However, as gCaptain reports, reality is even worse as the boom in so-called “zombie ships” suggests there is no recovery in sight for the beleaguered containership charter market, which is facing its biggest crisis since the 2008 financial crash.”

      1/26/16 – The Baltic Dry Index falls to 345

        • Observer

          Thanks for the Dryships website. I was always getting my numbers from BDI Bloomberg. Bloomberg always posted a day late. How low can it go. No one has ever seen numbers this low.

          • durangokidd

            K2: From the zombie ships article:

            “….. with the possible exception of very small feeders, all containership sectors are struggling badly, with owners obliged to accept sub-economic charter rates and pay for positioning costs just to keep their ships busy.

            The revenue earned in charter hire is seen by owners as a “contribution” to vessel overheads, but is often insufficient to cover mortgage payments on the ship….”

            As I noted the other day, owners would rather have their ships operating, retaining market share, than sitting at anchor, in port.

            Its going lower. 🙁

            • durangokidd

              BTW: We are NOT at “economic collapse”. Just the usual fear mongering from Dave Hodges. The quote from Soros:

              “Europe is on the verge of collapse” –George Soros ….

              Soros was referring to the POLITICAL collapse of Europe, not an economic collapse. And the political will not be total, but PIECEMEAL.

              Typical “Yellow Journalism” from Hodges that undermines his credibility. Hodges is a fucking flake, looking to make a buck off of your fear.

              If you believe him you are one of the suckers that are born every minute. 🙂

              • Scavenger

                I don’t see where Hodges is implying that the Soros comment was referring to the economy. The way this article is cobbled together starts talking economics, switches gears to politics (down thru the piece on Lynch), then returns to economics. Not that difficult to understand.

    5. USMC1982

      Don’t underestimate the ability of the Fed and the powers that be to manipulate the markets. They have OPEC on board and are going to lower oil production. Which will keep the markets from crashing for now. They are kicking that can further down the road.

      Unless there is a triggering event, this could go on until 2020. But sooner of later it will crash hard. If its later, that’s just more time to prepare.

      • Gonetoolong

        I too think that Americans will push this out further with the public’s compensation of events. We continue to turn a blind eye as long as the football games are played and the movies keep streaming. I am absolutely amazed at how much we tolerate as a nation. That being said, the right event could kick this shit off in a hurry. I can see that people are fed up with shit on many fronts and for many different reasons. The conservatives feel things are headed too liberal, and the libs think things are not liberal enough. Both sides pissed off and fewer people in the center. BO is pushing every figurative button he can to get a fight started. Better need than ever to be prepped.

      • Cara

        Saudi Arabia has been drilling to flood the market with oil and drive American and Canadians out of the fracking and oil sands business. They have succeeded.
        But they still keep flooding the market. Why? Are they working their own angle to cause a western economic crash? They crash the west and then what???

        As far as Germany is concerned it is no surprise that they are crashing. A nation can not take in a couple of million welfare cases and stay economically strong. I watched the mess over the summer and fall and wondered how quickly Germany and the others would start to crumble. Especially with a weak global economy.

        England is worried about 12 months from now. The immigrants can not work until they are fully processed and get their European IDs. Once they get them they can go anywhere in the EU. They can not be kept out. And many want to go to England.

        So if Saudi Arabia continues to drive the western economies down and send immigrants to be welfare leaches what outcome could be expected? When it comes to lack of food, how long will it be till there is fighting in the streets or in homes?

        And how long till we see all that here? Saudi Arabia has been building huge mega mosques all over the US. A community of 50 people “pay” for and build a multi-million dollar mosque, school and community center and playgrounds that will house 5000 and nobody asks what is going on.

        • Philosopher

          How long until there is fighting? Some say it only takes nine meals to arrive at anarchy.

          This recent episode with unlimited pumping in SA and OPEC was not accidental. I remember reading about this when it started, about 18 months ago. I was a skeptic then and I am still a skeptic. SA is following the orders of their US handlers. This started as a move to ruin Russia. It looks like things have backfired.

          As far as Germany, the next TBTF bank is Deutschebank. The German communists are going to learn, the hard way, that printing money and spending other people’s money has a limit.

          There are plenty of people asking what is going on, why, and who is going to pay for it. http://Www.thegatesofvienna.net is a great place to start searching.

        • Frank Thoughts

          I get what you are saying: it is a sophisticated take-down of the West by Saudi to impose a global Islamic New World Order. People (mistakenly) thought the New World Order would be a totalitarian society where Christine Lagarde would lord over us in her super-tight, gold jumpsuit and f-me black leather boots. But, instead, it will be a stultifying Islamic hell-hole: women kept indoors and under a burkha, men separated (literally) from the gays, but hooked up with the boys and girls.

          There are always clues as to how far Islamic power and wealth has penetrated your society and economy.

          1) One is the greater use of black as a design motif. You will see this more and more in ads and graphic design (usually with gold). Do some digging,and you will find the funder is from the Middle East.

          2) Another is zero interest rates. Charging of interest is unIslamic so countries being run by Islamic wealth will surreptitiously go to zero interest rates.

          3) Another is more obvious: a quickly growing Muslim population. More mosques being built; more disputes over Sharia law; more Islamic schools, Halal meals etc.

          4) Which countries are far down this road? In Europe, it is obvious: France, Germany, the UK and Sweden. All those countries are past the point of no return. They are ‘captured’. They are also the countries where public order is breaking down and the police look more and more helpless to protect the population. Eastern Europe and Russia is another story. They are still free.

          • Scavenger

            I believe islamism is a tool of the globalist/NWO, not the end goal.”Order out of chaos”… Just as you stated, public order is breaking down. I believe they are orchestrating international political, social, and economic turmoil that will result in a devastating world conflict. They (NWO) will arise the only (and “best” solution) to bring order to the chaos.

      Lots of things can happen and they are not good. Besides doing preps, you can enjoy he stability while it lasts. We know that people will make decisions based on fear and will do things they would not normally do. Riot, loot and other crimes. Then we have the government to deal with on all levels.

      We know something is coming.

        “Lots of things can happen and they are not good. Besides doing preps, you can enjoy he stability while it lasts.”

        Second this.

        Although things are much worse than is portrayed economically worldwide, the masses haven’t noticed yet. sports games are still selling out and people are still filling up cruises and vegas and this will continue for probably this whole year as it’s always a slow moving train.

        that said. every decline in the mkt has been faster than anticipated and every rally weaker this year and that is going to increase. the market losing 50% this year is not out of the question IMO as the FED is out of magic.

        if the usa is not in a recession this year, it will be next year.

        • slingshot


          It is all about greed and control.
          Who ever the hell they are IMF, Builderburgers, World Bank, Rothschild, Soros it is about the wealth and they want the world divided up among the very few. What they see is the world is being poisoned by chemicals and radiations so the food supply will diminish. Harm can be done with weather control. HAARP for instance. GMO food and Vaccinations combine with medications could be another way to kill us all. The day they close the banks so there is no money for food is going to be the wake up call.

          • TheGuy

            Seems to me more like:

            There’s always a “sieve” built in to this culture. Those small enough economically speaking to fall through… fall through. Into zero safety net. And presumably die, I mean I’ve watched it happen a couple of times now, though I don’t know what happened after they fell through.

            Sometimes their families pick ’em out, sometimes they don’t… if they do, they can risk falling through themselves, depending how bad it is.

            I just see the holes in the sieve getting larger and larger over a period of 10 years. Until the mid-middle class are falling through. Hell maybe even the upper middle class. No, bankruptcy is not “falling through”. Homelessness is falling through.

    8. I'm Will Tired

      Off topic kinda,
      Late last night I seen a commercial for the Army that stated we are no longer trying to keep up with change we are going to DRIVE change. This seems very strange as to me the only way to drive change is to create change and this should not be done by someone holding a gun.

      • TheGuy

        If you “drive change” militarily and actually release it into the wild before you strictly need it… you simply escalate conflict.

        I would have thought the theft of the atom bomb by Russia back in the day would have conclusively proven that one. What was that, 30… 40… years of a shit sandwich? And yes we almost did eat that one. Several times.

    9. Rebecca

      I agree with Paranoid. Advance notice allows millions of people to prepare. Most people need that time to not only stash food but to effect a complete lifestyle change on a shoestring budget. Even if it is just the number of gardens going in… US has added about 23 million home gardens. That makes a difference and it is butchering Walmart, may it rest in peace. The added benefit of prepping and gardening, it gives people an incentive to stay home, increase their efforts, and not run into the hinterlands like locusts. 45 million gardens is stabilizing. If 23 million people started gardening in the last few years, there are 23 million people awake. Add to the 22 million experienced gardeners who have some awareness. 45 million people are at least on the path. Figure 3 people per garden, average, and that is about 135 million.

    13. Makemyday

      Rappoport at nomorefakenews dot com has chosen to enlighten the public about what is really behind the theft of private property; such as the Hammond ranch in Burns, Oregon. It is a company called Uranium One.

      In an article at Business Insider check out Frank Guistra and his company, Clinton Guistra Partnership. Canadian Guistras’ company became Uranium One and was eventually sold to Russia. And the cash flowed into the Clintons treasury.

      Guistra quote: “All my chips, almost, are on Bill Clinton. He is a brand, a worldwide brand, and he can do things and ask for things that no one else can.”

      Finally the back story behind the Malheur Wildlife Refuge and the Hammond Ranch as well as other ranches and land surrounding the refuge surface. Rumors have now been confirmed the ranchlands do indeed contain a wealth of precious metals, minerals, and uranium coveted by not only the federal government but foreign entities as well. Think TTIP, TPA, or just think NAFTA.

      But for now, just think Hillary Clinton, and her foundation, for they are deeply implicated in this evil scheme along with the Russian State Nuclear Energy Corporation, along with a few questionable Canadians. One wonders if Rafael Edward Cruz knows these Canadians?

      Why not, after all this is all part of the North American Union (think Heidi Cruz’ involvement in that organization).

      Those who are still doubters or think the Uranium One scandal is just idle chatter, look and see. Behold the plan of deceit will unfold before your very eyes.

      Could it be that when Obama was caught talking to the Russian saying he would have more leeway if re elected this was what was in the pipeline?

      • Ed

        For the most part these days uranium isnt dug in big pits anymore. It is pulled up with the ground water and filtered out. Its not really a big deal and Ive seen pumps in peoples front yards.
        I would be surprised if the Hammond’s own their mineral rights anyhow. Most stock raising claims are split estate and the rancher only owns the surface rights.

        • durangokidd

          Ranchers do not own the surface rights either. More often than not, any ranches over 640 acres in the West are leased land from the American Taxpayer through BLM.

          640 acres was the maximum homestead that arose from legislation to develop the West.

          Rancher Bundy, as an example, leased 500 sq miles from the government before failing to renew his annual lease. 🙂

                It’s called “History” Acid. Most of the land in the West was ceded to the USA by Mexico after the War of 1848. At the time it was virtually unoccupied, the Indians having been exterminated for all intents and purposes.

                The USA opened the land to settlers under the Homestead Act as an inducement to develop it. Not unlike the MASSIVE land grants to the railroads along their right of way to link the East and West. 🙂

            • sharonsj

              If mining companies are operating on government land it’s because a corrupt Congress (and mostly Republicans, I might add) sells leases to corporations for a a few measly dollars. Our elected reps are more interested in getting campaign money–or just plain bribe money–than in the good of the country.

      Ken-L-Ration dog food makes your wife’s complexion clear.
      Chew chocolate-covered mothballs—they’re sure to satisfy.
      Brush your teeth with Lifebuoy soap and watch the suds go by.

      When I recovered from the shock, I went along my way.
      I’d gone no further than a block, when there to my dismay,
      Another billboard caught my eye, just like the one before,
      And as I gazed upon it, well, this is what I sawr:

      Take your next vacation in a brand-new Frigidaire.
      Learn to play piano in your winter underwear.
      Simonize your baby with a Hershey’s candy bar,

      Why people are dead as phuck and why women will be extinct. After what i heard today about the 3,000 plus people laid of in Houston from Slumber J, and the 1,000 plus people from EXxon, National Oil Well Vargo, people are certainly phucked. You boys working those cock phuckers been busy banging away, having babies, you all better get prepped up fast. Ladies check out the list from that link. Match it up and data mine it with some my scientist info, that coming right from the inside of the black ops military. Since we are meeing up with him this weekend, one can only imagine how PHUCKED WE REALLY ARE, AND WE ON SHTF KNOW IT ALREADY.

      With 99% of the stupid lazy idiotic people living in my condo complex, i can honestly say, you aint getting sh…t to eat from me unless you are a prepper. The Big Fat grotesk Bitch from the other office close by mine, just told me last week over hearing me talk shtf to one her co-workers told me that i need to get a life, and that i am looser, and thats why no women wants me. Fine, i do have a life, and you know what, take a look at this link Ladies. Ladies who prep, start making some adjustments and war game your city areas, from you work, if you have to go on foot, take other alternative routes, and figure out what the phuck you need to do and do it now. This is why i mentioned two week ago that the Feb 20-24th time frame then the March-April time frame, that some of us may have to run the phuck out to the BOL, i know Brave, Sarge and others have them. Getting to mine is my only problem, and if and when the SHTF STRIKES, then we will need to clear the phuck out. I dont have time to burying hundreds of tatooes up and black dredlock people stinking up my area because of disease.

      So i will make the attempt to leave, so i will be investing in a gas mask for smell to protect me from the people that got shot by me and others so that i can safely leave my area to the BOL. God forbid if my ass getstuck in this stinking city of rotting and decaying dead bodies. Expect a run on the grocery stores in the next 2 months in some of the major cities. Look at NY, i warned about the environment, the environment, the PHUCKING DAMN ENVIRONMENT, who listened? Methane 150,000 Metric tuns. Then the scientist warned me about the Exedus/ the runnning and halling ass from California.

      Check this out.

      Get ready guys, i have really bad, bad, horrific new news coming from that scientist. This time i will post it. Sorry agency ass clown trolls, your too late.

      • Enemy of the State

        no working experience with it, but it should be fairly basic ..looks like it produces a vacuum that allows the water in your well to be sucked up if all the other ways fail

        I have a well for emergencies and was looking into this also ..I have a few fresh water sources around me , so I wasnt jumping on this just yet

        my well head is also out on the front edge of my property, to where if something like this was sticking out of it, passers by might get suspicious , it would only be put in place once the other sources of water have been expended or are too dangerous to use

      I have been reading SHTF Plan for a little while and it is indeed…entertaining. A recurring theme in this content seems to be the cherry-picking of facts and data to support your perspective without thoroughly exploring the total meaning of the data set. Let’s have an example:

      You stated that “This is particularly disturbing because the BDI is generally considered to the best economic indicator of global health. The last six months would indicate that the global economy is coming to a complete standstill.”

      While the BDI certainly is a leading indicator of the global economy, the fact that it is falling does not necessarily mean an impending economic apocalypse. In fact, one of the most reputable economic periodicals available “The Economist” posits that the falling BDI can be attributed to other factors including the fact that…

      “The current malaise is much more a result of the overall supply of ships than a harbinger of doom for the world economy. In the run up to the financial crisis, as the world economy boomed and rates hit new heights, shipowners ordered a huge tonnage of bulk carriers.”

      The elasticity of demand for container ships is Pe < 1; therefore, when things were good the demand for ships was high. Now that the ships are just now making their way onto the market, the BDI falls as company's are OVERSTOCKED with ships. In this scenario, the price (BDI) falls.

      And this is just one example from one post. I find it curious that there is no mention of alternative explanations for a falling BDI in your thesis…

      • Acid Etch








      • Paranoid

        I agree, I read the Economist story, I have some problem with it. The average ship lasts 30-40 years,very few if any ships have been ordered since 2009 so perhaps 15% in service then should have been scrapped, or more, as this type of environment sends scrappage up. A lot of ships are in storage, IMHO this BDI is just very bad, and is indicating a whole lot less shipping than a lot of people anticipated. We should see shortly, the oil glut has used up the supply of tankers, but overall demand for shipping should soon show up reality.

        • WhoKnewIt..

          You know Noah built a ship by himself so large to hold every animal and species in the world. So lets ask for specifics if you have any rational thought. So how large of ship would he need and how long did it take him to build that entire vessel all by his lonesome? Do you Babble thumpers ever feel you’ve been duped? Ever connect the dots of facts and those of fantasy and see what is actually realized as real vs. Duped? Just saying. Do you still buy into weekly, the Church BS they feed you? Fantasy Thumpers will be the first to die in SHTF. Cause you fail to distnguish between reality and fantasy.

      I’ve been a prepper my entire life, not because I expected any earth-shattering event, but because growing up on a small family farm, that’s what you did. Our coming year’s worth of fruits and vegetables was put up at harvest time, a beef or hog butchered in the fall, the winter’s firewood cut, split and stacked before the first snowflake fell. I still do this, although on a smaller scale since my kids are grown and have their own homes and families. In recent years I’ve met new preppers who began to prep when they heard talk of collapse, invasion, martial law, or any of a dozen possible threats. When these events didn’t happen as predicted, many stopped prepping. Now I do believe things are about to unravel in the near future. The can has been kicked down the road much further than I ever imagined it could be but somehow they manage to pull another rabbit out of their magic hat and keep it going. Failing that, they divert our attention with some sort of false flag or military diversion. More folks are getting wise to those tactics and some of it is actually making it into mainstream media. When the media begins to focus on it and a significant percentage of the population demands accountability, that’s when they will crash the system and take off their mask. If they resorted to a 9/11 or Gulf Wars to distract us, what will they do to keep from getting lynched? I’ve never backed down from a fight in my entire life and don’t plan to start now but I certainly am not looking forward to what’s coming.

      “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen…”

      Pretty much most Americans have forgotten those words, which were spoken by our president. Selfies and celebrities are more important to most. Substitute the word “business” in that quote with other words and possessions. “House”. “Car”. “Money”.

      Those words were spoken for a reason. The powers that be KNOW what is coming and they know better than any one of us.

      “Desensitization”. That is how we should think of those words. Everyone has some grasp of the fact that we are no longer the big kids on the block. That numbers we see from Wall Street and The Department of Labor are just not the real status of our country. Of course, someone flaring their nostrils from a podium on National TV could plow that over by saying we are “peddling fiction” if we dare to questions that which is so obvious.

      That opening quote fits so perfectly with the agenda set forth in Executive Orders, such as 13603. All of the distractions and redirects that seem to pop up every time something surfaces that would alert the population to question and be vigilant, have allowed the stage to be set.

      I don’t know if something will happen. I don’t know when it might. Read those Executive Orders, however, and even the most optimistic person may find themselves in conflict with the concepts of reason and logic that are within their own thinking and knowledge.

      Those Executive Orders were written for SOME ANTICIPATED CATASTROPHIC SERIES OF EVENTS.

      Prepping is fine. But prep also for what happens when you find yourself WITHOUT your planned bug out locations and/or supplies.

      Watch the movie “The Pianist”. Even a prominent and iconic national figure, as the movie portrays, who has wealth and friends and connections, RAPIDLY loses all of those things when war and famine and PEOPLE YOU THOUGHT YOU COULD TRUST suddenly materializes and turns on you.

      Then again, we could just all watch Star Wars and log into Facebook and Twitter and forget about it (hmmm…isn’t there now an Executive Order that can kill the Internet accessibility we so do enjoy? Or am I “peddling fiction”….!).

This administration has no credibility at all. Obummer should be out but everyone said impeachment would take too long. We are past the point of no return IMO. It will take an act of God to change things now. We all know the dept of labor doesn’t consider unemployed people who aren’t collecting bennies in the numbers. They lie so much to believe anything they say is putting your head in the sand. Let’s let the vagrants in that we have no jobs for. our leaders live in a bubble that prevents them from seeing the world the way it really is.

      prepping tip for those on a budget – buy your beans and pulses now!

      2016 has been declared the year of the pulses and by the time those TV chefs and promotors are done, our favourite frugal recipes probably will have shot up in cost – same as any other peasant food that becomes trendy does.

      rice and beans forms the staple of many a preppers food store so please don’t any old timers sneer as I try and warn those just starting out.

      Call me stupid or naïve but I’m increasingly sceptical that the economy will collapse and bring about the collapse of society. I think the worst we can expect is a repeat of 2008 and whilst it led to suffering for many people, it also failed to cause much impact for the majority.

      The large majority of people simply heard about it on the news or in the press and I think that’ll happen again.

      Nothing to see here…….

      Now isnt this interesting. I did 3 post on this artilce yesterday, about the shooting in Oregon, where a militia leader and one women was murdered by the feds, last night and not a single one of them even posted, its just dissapeared into cyber space. Looks like someone is hacking Macs site and deleting my post, must be because i am posting real info on what the scientist been telling me, eh.

        Yeah nutboy, those aliens on Niburu are jamming all your transmissions, they’ve taken Dave Hodges hostage, and scientist friend has disappeared completely, and you’re so phucking important your delusional ramblings have to be deleted by secret government men in black. Hopefully you’ll be drained from the gene pool before too long.

          look who is calling the kettle black…he is probably more correct in his thinking/posting than you are.
