10 Signs That Economic Riots And Civil Unrest Inside The United States Are Now More Likely Than Ever

You should let the video footage of the wild violence that just took place in London burn into your memory because the same things are going to be happening all over the United States as the economy continues to crumble.  We have raised an entire generation of young people with an "entitlement mentality", but now the economy is producing very few good jobs that will actually enable our young people to work for what they feel they are entitled to.  If you are under 30 in America today, things look really bleak.  The vast majority of the good jobs are held by people that are older, and they aren't about to give them up if they can help it.  It is easy for the rest of us to tell young Americans to "take whatever they can", but the reality is that there is intense competition for even the most basic jobs.  For instance, McDonald's recently held a "National Hiring Day" during which a million Americans applied for jobs.  Only 6.2% of the applicants were hired.  In the old days you could walk down to McDonald's and get a job whenever you wanted to, but now any job is precious.  The frustration among our young people is palpable.  Most of them feel entitled to "the American Dream" and they feel like the system has failed them.  Unfortunately, many of them are already turning to violence.  But the economic riots and the civil unrest that we have already seen are nothing compared to what is coming.  Americans are angry, and as the economy continues to collapse that anger is going to reach unprecedented heights.

In recent days, even many in the mainstream media have been openly wondering if the riots that happened in London could happen here too.  There is a growing acknowledgement that this country is headed down a very dark path.

The sad thing is that these riots accomplish absolutely nothing.  The recent London riots did not create any jobs and they certainly did not solve any economic problems.  Instead, they actually hurt the economy even more because a huge am0unt of property was destroyed and people are even more afraid to continue with business as usual.

But when people get to the end of their ropes, most of the time they are not thinking rationally.  When frustration erupts, the results can be very, very messy.

All over the United States we are already seeing some very troubling signs of the violence that is coming.  The following are 10 signs that economic riots and civil unrest inside United States are now more likely then ever....

#1 Going to the state fair used to be such a fun thing for American families to do.  But now no place is safe.  The following is how one local ABC News affiliate described the "flash mob" attacks that took place at the Wisconsin state fair recently....

Milwaukee police said that around 11:10 p.m., squads were sent to the area for reports of battery, fighting and property damage being caused by an unruly crowd of "hundreds" of people. One officer described it as a "mob beating."

Police said the group of young people attacked fair goers who were leaving the fair grounds. Police said that some victims were attacked while walking. They said others were pulled out of cars and off of motorcycles before being beaten.

One eyewitness said that the flash mob attacks at the Wisconsin state fair absolutely overwhelmed the limited police presence that was there....

When I saw the amount of kids coming down the road, all I kept thinking was, 'There's not enough cops to handle this.'  There's no way.  It would have taken the National Guard to control the number of kids that were coming off the road.  They were knocking people off their motorcycles.

#2 According to a new Rasmussen survey, 48% of Americans believe that reductions in government spending are "at least somewhat likely" to result in civil unrest inside the United States.  Unfortunately, perception often greatly influences reality.

#3 U.S. consumer confidence is now at its lowest level in 30 years.

#4 Joblessness among young Americans is at an epidemic level, and when rioting does break out it is usually young people that are leading the way.  That is why the following statistics from an article in The Atlantic are so troubling....

One in five Americans are between 15 and 29-years old. And one in five of those Americans are unemployed. For minorities and the under-educated, the picture is much worse. Black teenagers have an unemployment rate of 44 percent, twice the rate for white teens.

#5 We are starting to see mindless violence in a lot of areas that used to be considered safe.  In Kansas City on Saturday night, three young people were hit with bullets as they walked the streets of the Country Club Plaza.  Mayor Sly James was about 50 yards away when the gunfire erupted.  Authorities in Kansas City are considering a stricter curfew for that area.

#6 "Flash mobs" have become such a problem in Philadelphia that the mayor has imposed a strict curfew on young people.  Now all teens between the ages of 13 and 18 must be indoors by 9 o'clock at night.  The mayor also says that teens need to start pulling up their pants....

"Pull your pants up and buy a belt ’cause no one wants to see your underwear or the crack of your butt."

#7 All over the United States we are seeing that many struggling Americans will do just about anything for money.  For example, in Detroit recently three masked men crashed a vehicle through the entrance of a gas station and took off with an entire ATM machine.

#8 Desperate people do desperate things.  Many of America's "forgotten poor" are trying to survive any way that they can.  For instance, a group of vagrants recently set up "a makeshift camp" near Prospect Park lake in Brooklyn.  According to the New York Post, many nearby residents have been disturbed by what these "drifters" are doing to survive....

The drifters have been illegally trapping and cooking up the critters that call the park home, including squirrels, ducks and swan-like cygnets.

They used crude tactics to hunt their prey, including barbed fishing hooks that ripped off the top half of one poor gosling's beak. They then cooked the meat over illegal fires. Some of the animals were eaten raw.

#9 According to CNN, sales of safes and vaults are absolutely soaring right now.  One store owner told CNN that she believes that she is selling a lot more safes now because people are scared that civil unrest could be coming....

"Folks are worried about the decreasing value of the dollar, burglaries on the rise in their neighborhoods ... and even the possibility that the unrest we are seeing in other parts of the world slipping over to our country."

#10 Over the past 100 years, the American population has moved steadily into our big cities and the surrounding suburbs.  This has created virtual "ghost towns" in our rural areas from coast to coast.  Back in 1910, 72 percent of Americans lived in rural areas.  Today, only 16 percent of Americans live in rural areas.  But when you crowd huge masses of people close together that makes riots and civil unrest much more likely.

Most Americans are already fed up, and the economy is not even that bad yet.  One recent survey found that 73 percent of Americans believe that the nation is "on the wrong track".  Another recent poll found that only 17 percent of Americans now believe that the U.S. government has the consent of the governed.

Millions of very frustrated young people believe that the economic system has failed them and that the political system no longer holds any answers.

America is rapidly approaching a breaking point.  I have written previously about the collapse of society that we are already witnessing all over the United States.  When the economy totally breaks down, most Americans are not going to be able to handle it.

Sadly, instead of coming together and trying to do something productive, many Americans will resort to rioting, looting and civil unrest.  We have already seen this during local emergencies such as Hurricane Katrina.

But mindless violence accomplishes absolutely nothing positive.  It just always makes things worse.

Unfortunately, logic and reason are not going to be enough to stop the gigantic wave of frustration that is coming.  For most of the rest of us, it will be hard enough to get out of the way and protect our own families from the economic riots and the civil unrest that are coming.

The thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted is starting to disappear.  Hatred and anger are growing by the day.  The United States is becoming a very frightening place.

So get ready.  Our politicians certainly don't have any answers for us.  The debt ceiling deal was a complete and total joke, and corruption is absolutely rampant in Washington right now.  Barack Obama is getting ready to leave for yet another vacation, and most of our politicians are only focused on the next election.

So don't expect a "miracle" from those that are supposed to be leading us.

They don't care about you.

You need to take care of yourself and your family and your friends.

A massive economic collapse is coming, and most Americans are going to be totally blindsided by it.

Don't let that happen to you.

    I don’t think that Social Security or Medicare should ever be given to someone who hasn’t paid into it. I also believe they should do away with “Disability Social Security”. I know several people who have abused it, drawing extra money without really being disabled. I think that would take care of the Social Security problem.

    • Babs

      Should we send the disabled off to the gas chambers? Nah we can let them just die off in the streets. Don’t forget to put your raincoat over their corpses so your lady friends don’t soil their feet.

      • majcm

        Babs,APalmer is right regaring S.S Disability. I’m am so sorry for the truly disabled, but for every one person that is actually too PHYSICALLY disabled, there are 5 that have absolutely nothing wrong with them working the system. I see it firsthand. I work for a personal injury lawyer. Out of 40+ cases we have, 75% are under 50 and 75% of them are on “S.S. Disability” This in a very small Midwest town. Lots of the “disabled”because of “depression” Bull@*#t!! I’ve been through clinical depression. Guess what? I worked all the way through it. It probably even helped by getting me out around people & producing a product myself. There is no way to save S.S & Medicare as long as these lazy, sneaky, lying SOB’s are sucking up the money. (BTW, I’m 50, worked & paid in since 18, and I most likely won’t see a dime of S.S.) Thanks losers who fake disability for “free” money. You have a nice hot place waiting for you when you cross that river!

  • Motherof5

    This is what happens when YOU allowed the “village” to raise your precious children so that you could be fullfilled and find purpose and meaning to your life. This is what happened when you wanted to work so that you
    could have all the STUFF that everyone else has, and let the system raise your little sweet hearts. This is the outcome when the liberal
    progressive system of public school got into
    the hearts and minds of your little children
    and eventually won their trust. They stopped listening to YOU, they stopped believing YOU and you didnt send them to church or to religious education to counter all the bull they were serving in free public school programs that the system pays for with out tax dollars. You were too busy working so that you
    could pay for the stuff and more stuff and more
    stuff and vacations and more stuff and eventually the bills began to build and you only paid the min. balance due and the credit cards totals were increasing but so long as you had your stuff and the kids had their stuff and they were kept with stuff that YOU decided would replace YOU! How wrong you were and how right the liberal progressive machine was. How hillary thought a village would take care of the children and how the village crept in one day and replaced YOU!
    All you have now is to return to tried and true
    ways of doing things, reign back in your kids from the system and be happy that you are off the rat wheel. Pray and trust and hope and with faith, G-d will restore our country and your life and then….NEVER FORGET! Sort of like 9/11…NEVER FORGET…but this time, unlike 9/11…and those who have forgotten, this time, NEVER FORGET because this THING going on right now is each mans own personal 9/11. When it’s personal, for some strange reason, forgetting isn’t typically an option. God Bless my fellow Americans! That is my prayer each day!

    • Casey Jones

      Amen! I’d vote for you! Hillary is a crappy mother married to a crappy liar who is the product of a $5 hooker and a nameless john. What a village.

  • Abby

    Harder & dangerous times are coming- yet many don’t get it. They don’t anticipate the creeping of thousands of hungry & angry city dwellers 5 miles up the highway arriving in their town a day later and burning everything in their wake. They’ve already burnt their own area out- they’re very good at it.
    But how does one tell your friends & neighbors of this? How do they understand why I’m devastated that my survivability has decreased because I’m now disabled from a car accident. 2 years ago, I could have fled the mobs coming my way, but no longer. I’ll be dead where I stand. Whats worse is knowing what is coming and yet a clueless councilor doesn’t understand the fear. “Use your cell phone and call a taxi” was the advice given.
    People are really in denial about what is going to happen to our great nation within 5 years.

    All I can do is raise my boys to have a strong moral compass, hope they keep their strong backs and the best common sense education I can squeeze in the amount of time left. I’m a goner, I know that. This is what makes it so painful for those of us who wanted & made the effort to survive.

    • Babs

      You are so right and I am sorry for your situation. I am in the exact spot myself. Disabled, yet taking care of my elderly parents. Sandwhiched in between two large thug cities, both a 15 minute ride down the pike. We don’t have anything of value, right now we are going on one meal a day. For the love of God all we want is to live out this life in some last moments of peace. We live in an old neighborhood some houses are well to do, ours is clearly not. I don’t think we will be spared
      as we are on a main road that connects to US 1, the only thing I am thinking of it tossing my own moltov cocktails off of my second floor porch at anyone who approaches. Weapons like guns are not really an option. I will fight back but I don’t expect to last. When all is said and done all the thugs will get is the satisfaction of their ragefilled destruction. We own nothing of value and if we did I would destroy it myself before I’d let some worthless scum put it’s hands on it.

    • Casey Jones

      Abby, if you raise those sons right, they’ll never let any harm befall you. Don’t worry … more people than you could ever imagine have been waiting for this and are prepared to act. Those thugs are going to be picked off before they get two blocks out of their own ‘hoods.

      Babs – if you’re the same Babs that was posting above and excusing thieves and miscreants, then it’s clear that your disability is schizophrenic dementia. I like the Babs who’s ready to toss a molotov cocktail much better.

    Class Warfare
    In my last message I mentioned class warfare, which our liar-in-chief and his cronies are trying to incite with their continual “us against the rich” statements. The violence that is now happening in Great Britain is exactly that – class warfare. It is the have-nots against the “rich”. It is those who are extremely jealous of others who have more than they do and they are reacting in anger and violence. These animals think they are entitled to whatever someone else has, even though they themselves have not earned it. It is a mob mentality, the emotions of savages, not human beings.

    We will soon see this same class warfare erupt in this nation. If you own a business or live in a nice neighborhood I strongly suggest that you begin to take whatever measures you can to protect your families, property and businesses. The evil ones who are going to loose this violence upon this nation are without conscience or morals and will kill you and your family if they can, they will steal anything and everything of value. They are pure, absolute evil. I promise you that civil war is coming upon this nation by next year.

    • Gary2

      Most of the rich “earned” their riches by exploiting others. We are simply taking back that which was stolen from us in the first place.

      Pay back is a bitch!

      • Casey Jones

        So is your careless mother.

  • Prepare4thebadHope4theGOOD

    Wow, why do so many of you excuse bad behavior? Just because bankers, or politicians, or “Wall street” rips someone off does NOT give anyone else permission to do bad. This is what liberal democrat pols and advisors scream on TV all the time, “so and so did that so this is OK”. As one said on here, there were no riots and looting and killing during the Great Depression. And that is because people then did not think everyone else owed them something, they had a religious background, and they knew what the right thing to do was.
    Don’t think this is all some random result of misguided government. THAT is BS. This is all by design, and started decades ago. Now a global conspiracy doesn’t seem so “out there” does it? You think destroying the #1 education system, corrupt government, attacks on religion, massive changes in the immigration sytem, creating the Federal Reserve was all just a random roll of the dice?? Really? Read Clower and Piven, Saul Alinski, etc. Look at CFR, Club of Rome, Tri-latteral writings. There was a plan years ago, that talked about reducing the world popluation on purpose through wars, famine, etc, Global 2020 or something?
    People like the Warburgs, Rothschilds hate the fact America was free (not so much now though). They have spent the last 100+ years tearing this county down. Check out LIBERAL FACISM, and see how Wilson wanted to send the common rubble to WWI to control the unwashed. Read about Margaret Sanger and how she and her kind – PROGRESSIVES – started Planned Parenthood and put them in the black areas to CONTROL THE POPULATION.
    These people thought the black protests in the 60s was going to do their dirty work, but it did not work out. So, Saint Fat-ass Ted Kennedy changed the immigration laws to almost EXCLUDE white Europeans and allow virtually un-regulated non-white influx to dilute the whites that would never buckle under so they could expand the liberal/progressive destruction of our country.
    I am not blaming minorities, and I don’t dislike anyone that is a productive member of America – what ever color. I blame the elitists that have used them to beat us into destruction.

  • Mike

    I’m 49,

    When I was 20, my dad told me not to plan on Social Security. He’s Liberal. That stuck in my mind.

    I believe in self sufficiency. I expect the government to stay out of my affairs. If a business doesn’t manage it books well, it should fail. Debt will keep you from prosperity (I speak from experience).

    One tone I get from these posts is the young are lazy, and expect handouts.

    When I was a teenager, there were 42,000 more manufacturing plants onshore than today. Teens and twentysomethings have been robbed. If a country has no manufacturing base, it will not thrive.

    If you haven’t been paying attention lately, living costs major money. Not 25,000 a year salary money, 60k-70k a year money. There no longer is an infrastructure for those coming up to earn that kind of money.

    And if I hear another blacks are sucking us dry with their welfare mentality (and violence) quote, I’ll kidnap you, drug you, and leave you in the hood. You don’t know what you’re talking about.

    In fact, I dare you to start where they did and rise out of that status (using the same resources they know and use-no connections you already have)

    But for the grace of God, your stupid a$$ would’ve been born in the ghetto, or the rural South. You’re “superiority” stems from luck, not ability.

    BTW, lots of whites looted in the 92 LA riots. The “liberal” media didn’t cover it though. When people have nothing to lose, they lose it. Get ready for to see lots of crime from your own skin color (that’s for all races).

    Like its been said, focus on helping others, unless of course your just like “them”.

  • Mad Max

    Of course it is more likely to happen here. If you noticed, things are only getting worse. There’s a lot of dispare because most people don’t see how things are going to get better.

    Then maybe they should open their eyes. America has one real chance to right herself.

    FIGHT THE CAUSE – NOT THE SYMPTOM
    Read “Common Sense 3.1″

  • major

    Unless the socialists are removed from office by the normal processes of election, impeachment, etc there will be an organized effort to remove them forcibly. But it will not be civil unrest per se. Thats a socialist code word for marshal law, whereby they could consolidate their control under the guise of restoring order. The socialists may even be trying to capitulate alleged unrest by creating economic chaos through their current policies to force the situtation to a peak.

    • Gary2

      I think you must have meant the conservative tea bagger republicans. There is no one even close to a socialist in charge of this country. I wish there were but there is not.

  • John

    America was a nice place to live, TIMES have changed and we need to move on, I’m leaving my dream behind and moving to South-Africa where my sister has been for 20 years, much better life there for me!!!

  • Richard Popovich

    It is said that insanity is doing the same thing over, and over again, with negative results, and then keep doing the same thing, and still expect a different result. That is what our politicians have been doing for the past fifty years, incrementally of course.

    How can we expect to have good paying jobs in America, when we don’t manufacture the things that are sold in WalMart, TARGET, and other retail outlets? Fast food outlets can’t sustain the requirement for jobs in our nation. Neither can carpet cleaning, house keeping services, and other business that are service based. If other Americans are not working, those folks can’t buy burgers, or have their carpets cleaned. And in America our governmental policies have drive American manufacturing out of the United States,
    overseas. American businesses won’t even run telephone call centers in the United States anymore.
    Americans have done this to themselves by being willing to purchase cheap, inferior goods from overseas, from countries like Red China, India, and Indonesia.
    We have also allowed our government to get so far out of control of its spending habits, that our funded and unfunded liabilities (debt) now exceeds $127 Trillion dollars, not the $15 Trillion that the politicians keep talking about.
    In the meantime, the Fed keeps printing new money, thereby increasing the rate of inflation on everything we buy. Inflation caused by the Federal Reserve is nothing more than a hidden tax, that is just as effective as any income, or sales tax, but they just devalue our money to accomplish what they want to get dome; e.g., steal our money.
    We are on a slippery slope, sliding towards the edge of a cliff. Eventually there will be a limit to how much our monetary system can tolerate, and there will be a collapse. That is when all hell will break loose, and anarchy will
    take over.
    What is happening in London, will look like a picnic, when our economy implodes. We are headed for big trouble. If you don’t believe this is orchestrated by the left, just GOOGLE, “The U.S. Day of Rage” and check out what the anarchists are planning for September 17. If you check it out, you’ll have a new perspective on things to come.

    • Old Man

      Yes, pretty good summary. But about a decade too late to realize it, or to so something about it.

      Where were you during the 2 decades where the policy of the US government is to trickle wealth up so that the wealthy can trickle some of it down. Well, the wealthy has the money, but decided to trickle down their wealth in the form of debt with interest.

      This cake has been baked and you can’t unbake it. Because the wealthy still has all the money and you don’t. Their wealth is private and governments cannot touch it. Try to tax it and they move offshore with a click. Depreciate their wealth by debasing the dollar and they convert to another hedging currency.

      Sorry sir. There is no way out. Which is why is all history, great impoverishment of the mass was solved only one way, the old-fashioned way. The same way the country was founded when impoverished by the aristocrats across the ocean – revolution.

    These are not “economic” riots, or if they are it is only in a very loose sense. The “flash mobs” are a mostly black behavior, and if you notice, the kids have cell phones, adequate clothing, and look pretty nutritionally healthy to me. It is, in fact, mostly racial violence perpetrated against whites. Attempting to explain it in economic terms is not helpful, serious, nor very insightful.

      I try not to perpetuate the thinking that everyone should be divided into “teams” or “groups” or “sides” based on what they look like.

    Very true. American workers pay into social security their whole lives. It’s not a choice, it’s taken out of each and every paycheck by law. Yet, the government is handing out social security checks and medicare to newly arrived immigrants who never paid a single dime into it.

    There are not enough jobs in America for Americans yet our government continues to flood this country–on the verge of collapse–with more 3rd world immigrants every year and the same government refuses to deport even illegal immigrants convicted of violent crimes against Americans.

    Free social security, medicare, welfare, free housing, food stamps, health care, college educations and jobs for illegals. This is not the American dream but the 3rd world communist dream of pillage, rob, rape, kill.

    The London riots were predominantly black immigrants, flash mobs are blacks. If you are a white European American you are the target of organized violence and no one is going to protect you but you.

    Ron Paul knows where this country is at and has been a strong supporter of the Constitution since his inception.
    We are close to a “police state”. The PTB need rioting and problems to justify it’s institution.(they need an excuse)
    The Country was founded with inalienable rights for all, and ordained by our creator who is the God of the Bible. It is only a belief in God that gives the inherent right to freedom.
    Democracy does not give freedom, only a Republic. When have you heard a politician call this government a Republic, instead of a democracy? You havn’t? It is because the Republic became null and void for people who are 14th amendment “citizens”, or assetts, with revocable priviledges, as opposed to inalienable rights. If you don’t honor the “God” Jesus of the constitution, you will loose the protections provided thereby, and kiss the hope of freedom goodbye. In 82 or 84, Reagan passed the Bible recognition law, acknowledging that the Bible was the inspired word of God. The cruxt is, direction of the Country will not likely change, until we change.
    Support the Constitutional experiment of the founders, not the failed Democracy of the politicians.
    Ron Paul supports the Constitution, always has, no variance.

    Bonnie, re: “The United State was in it’s greatest form when it was 90% white and 10% minority. I am part Hispanic and it was wonderful living here back then. And I’m no racist. Just telling the truth.
    This was before 1965 when the Morons in charge brought in Third World immigrants…” No, Bonnie, we have Senator Edward Kennedy to thank for the Immigration Reform Act of 1965, if my facts are correct. Our immigration policy prior to that time favoured individuals from the Anglophone world.

    Riots are a near certainty with the proposed “Day of Rage” coming September 17th. Supposedly peaceful “tent cities” will be erected on Wall Street and other cities across the country. It’s a movement being coordinated on Facebook and Twitter by former ACORN founders and members of the SEIU to protest the rich.

    The facts are that the races/nationalities/religions can not live together. They just refuses to have the common bond of family. The races/cultures are suspicious of each other and always pointing a blaming finger at each other. We have too many cultural differences going on and people refuse to adapt to others. Whether this is right or wrong is besides the point. I think we will eventually see this country break up based on heritage, background and yes even race. The multi cultural stuff is not gelling. There is too much resentment and whatever is coming will be the final blow stack. What comes after I cannot say. Also myself only wish for peace and it must happen at any cost even if it means departing with the notion of multi culturalism being beneficial. It clearly is not and anger on all sides proves this. People cannot be trusted and for some their are good reasons as to why. We are a sorry lot us humans.

    I saddens me to read the replies that were left prompting my last but those since. I understand your frustrations. If you buy into the hatreds of those on the left or the right you are doing exactly what the polititians want you to do,and you might as well bend over and grab your ankles. That is exactly what they want us to do, its called divide and conquer. Rich against poor, minority against majority and, any other combinations you can think of so that they can continue to be reelected to gain more personal power and wealth to our detriment. Like I said before, throw the bums out and throw the bums out that replace them if they don’t make the changes that put the country on the right track.

    The debt time bomb was set by Zurich Financial Services years before the financial crisis of 2008 caused its AIGFP unit to go broke and then its ZFS Group Parent being taken over by the US Government. This company has destroyed Countries, millions of companies and billions of people’s lives. Its damage and destruction is being felt all over America,Europe and the rest of the World.

    Courts have fined this company $billions for its criminal activities, it has been named infamously in thousands of Courts all over the world. Fraud appears to be its middle name; it deceives everyone into believing they are dealing with a competing company, when the opposite is true.

    Banks, Insurers, Pensions, Healthcare, Financial Services, Motoring Organisations, High Street Chains, Supermarkets, Unions, Airlines, Leasing: Cars, van, Trucks, Planes, Heavy Plant, and very much more, all are part of ZFS, ZURICH the insurer.

    Zurich Financial Services is famous for :Racketeering, Fraud, Bid Rigging, Deception, Corruption the list is horrendous.

    One Judge commented, However while the insurance industry only talks about fraud committed by its policyholders, what interests the FBI is the increase in corporate fraud by the insurance companies themselves, leading the agency to establish it as one of its top investigative priorities. No company is a better example of this kind of fraud than Zurich Financial Services AIG subsidiary.

    This type of systemic fraud from Corporate Groups, who are only interested in profiteering at the expense of anyone, is the single reason the financial system is in such a mess.

    Its fraud from the top down, just look who is buying gold by the container load and where it is now Z for country and B for bank,

    Tax at source is the only way to stop the crooks in suits transferring huge profits elsewhere, and force Companies to publish all subsidiary names holdings and interests.

    The public do not know their money in Banks does not belong to them once it is deposited with a Bank, regardless of the type of account. IT BELONGS TO THE BANK. There are Court cases stating this in most countries, but the facts are kept out of the media. So if the worst happens you now know who owns your money.

    Imminent Threat of Unlawful and Dangerous Activities on BART Platforms, San Fransisco, CA

    July 11 Protest
    On July 11, a group gathered at the BART Civic Center Station in San Francisco to protest the fact that, on July 3, a BART Police Officer shot and killed Charles Hill at that station.

    During that protest, one person climbed on top of a train and many other individuals blocked train doorways and held train doors open. During the course of the event, which occurred during the peak of rush hour, individuals used BART trains to move between stations, and caused the shutdown or partial shutdown of other stations.

    For those of us who still read (and believe in) biblical scripture, these pre-apocalyptic times were fore-told thousands of years ago. It just happens to be our ‘winnowing’ within universal history that those of us within this specific generation and time-frame who are still alive in the 21st Century, are now beginning to witness (ne, participating-in) these acts of global devastation. We ARE the generation who will see the end of times on Earth, I’ve no doubt. And scripture upholds. I never thought I’d live to see it – but it is happening now under our very eyes. If there ever was a time for mankind to get on its collective knees, bow to its Creator and beg for forgiveness, this is that time. Christian, Muslim, non-believer alike, we need a salvation that will last beyond this present and up-coming age. Most of us know to Whom we should send-up our prayers. If you don’t know? May God Almighty have mercy on your soul – because Congress doesn’t; the Senate doesn’t; your local Representatives don’t; the current President doesn’t; and most assuredly, Satan doesn’t. Let’s pack our bags, people, get our act together(!) We’re staring ETERNITY right in the face. You ready? I’m already packed for Heaven – locked and loaded.

  • Robert Butler

    This is truly amazing — to see so many people ruled by fear, absolutely ruled by it. I have a feeling a great number of you are older, perhaps in the 40-55 year range. I am 41. What you don’t seem to realize is that there are entirely economies, *economies*, that are growing and forming themselves without your knowledge. There is a whole parallel system of barter and exchange occurring that does not involve stock markets, commodity exchanges, or currency valuations. The social networking paradigm is one that I think almost no one on this email list or listing to this article-writer (a man who probably cannot sleep at night because his fear is so high) could understand, much less know about.

    There is nothing going on here except a whole lot of terrified people screaming at each other to become more scared, more frightened, and to buy more weapons to kill people with.

    I am left wondering where the American tradition of solving your problems has gone. The youth of today are doing that, by creating these tax-free social-networking systems of exchange of which you are totally unaware. They are solving their problems. They are working for themselves, forming their own companies of a single person, creating an entire economy of contractors that do not depend on centralized authorities to exist. This is in reaction to what they already know to be the central evil of our times: faceless corporations with the rights of individuals but none of the responsibilities.

    DO NOT PANIC. Do not be afraid. Face your fears. Stop planning to kill everyone you don’t recognize within 5 seconds. You are becoming part of the problem by spreading fear like the plague. Reach out, help others, do what you’re supposed to do as rational, thinking human beings. We left the caves long, long ago. Do you really wish to return there, machine gun in hand, waiting to slaughter anyone you meet? Is that really the answer?

    • Casey Jones

      It makes me sad that Robert Butler, at the ripe ‘older’ age of 41, is so obtuse. He scolds the greatest generation that this country – and the world – has ever known, and their children for being deeply and rightfully concerned, and then turns around and worships the brain-adled compuzombies who aren’t putting anything into the tax coffers, but are most certainly using services that cost taxes. In other words, grifters and scam artists that are protected by tax-provided military protection, as well as police and firefighters. I wonder if they get online and barter with a shaman or, as I suspect, if they go to the nearest county hospital and then skip out on the bill? At least now, thanks to the probable-contraceptive failure of a couple of hippies, the rest of us are aware that there are alot of his peers that are not paying their taxes. Thanks for the heads-up … slacker.

  • Bill

    Let’s see,Robert Butler is 41, born in 1970. He does not remember the Viet Nam War and attendant riots, flag burning and street protests. Nor the Hippie movement in the 1960′s; nor the Korean War which was called a police action where we lost 50k+ Americans; nor WW2 and the depression years that preceded.
    He claims there is a new “economic system” of barter (not a new concept, it was used in medieval times) which is tax free. WOW! How does he suppose there will be money for an established government, whose primary function is to preserve the safety of its citizens. Not welfare nor re-distribution of wealth.

    Sounds more like an anarchist society based on Darwinian evolution where the fittest will survive, and not based on LAW.

    My suggestion to these young people who know little of history is to read about the founding of our country to understand the miracle of our Freedom and prosperity.
    Then begin the hard work of turning the current behemoth of federal government around and return to those earlier days of true human rights and freedom without an oppressive central government.
    Or just find an immigrant from communism and listen to their story.
    Last I read is that the “social networking” feed the London/UK riots.

  • shajenn

    Robert Butler.
    You are absolutely correct. Now tell us where to find these bartering groups you are telling us about????
    However. I think that the millions of newly poor and on the street people would tell you how there is something evil going on and they are already caught in it. The fears have basis, but you are correct in saying that people should not give in to their fears and start planning something that will help sustain them.

  • Vince DiMaggio

    this is what happens when liberals take command of gov’t and the courts. We don’t teach our children the responsibility they have to get a good education. Our tech sector has taken over. All young children and young adults are more interested in playing video games and keeping up with the bums in hollywood. all this keeps these fools occupied while corporate america and our elected officals in state and federal gov’t take our liberty and wealth with the blessing of the judicial branches of gov’t.

  • Madmanmikey

    Thanks for the articles – this one, all of them.

    While I like what you write I have to comment on one of the things in this article. You said

    While I agree with that I think you’re sort of cherry picking there. Yes, many young people have that mentality, but it isn’t just them.

    That idea runs rampant throughout society. It’s what got us into this idiotic situation in the first place. We all think we “deserve” something – a new car, a bigger home, the newest toy. Whatever is it, “I” work hard and “I” deserve it.

    That attitude resulted in a housing bubble, a credit bubble and now riots.

    Done with my whining now. Keep up the informative work!

  • J. Edgington

    Entitled, no, deserving, yes. These people are asking for dignity, not a handout. Those of you who say they want something that is not a right, are egotistical bums. These young people should have the same dreams we all grew up with. Heck I do not even have my own dream now becaue it has all been stolen by the very people/corporations I trusted. We should have all listened to the hippies, they were right, money corrupts everything. Get off your high horse and help people, stop blaming them. Even if they are wrong it does not make them any less human. Care for others and stop making them evil.

    I am thankful that you are reaching out to those who may not be aware or ready for what is yet to come. On a biblical note.. When Noah tried to tell the PPl that a Flood was coming… They ignored him and carried on with their lives and was to late to prepare themselves or do anything about it… we”re on the same page… THANKS

    “A massive economic collapse is coming, and most Americans are going to be totally blindsided by it.”

    That’s the truth. When 401k’s and IRA become worthless, due to an economic collapse / hyperinflation, people will have nothing.

    But the money doesn’t just disappear… it moves to people who have positioned themselves correctly. And right now, that’s those who are smart enough to buy silver and gold.

    Get financial education before it’s too late. http://ElevationGroupVideo.com/presentation

  • F.M. Starkey

    Pathetic. You create your own job. You find ways to serve others more efficiently and at a lower cost. You have to work 50 – 70 hours per week. You exercise your resource and initiative. HOw do you think America succeeded by asking the government to take care of everybody. That means you have been brainwashed. Equal opportunity for all welfare/govt. jobs. NO career, but service to your community. Save their own money: not more govt. pensions. That is freedom for everybody.
    Get off your delusional butt and get to work. There is NO FREE LUNCH.

  • Patrick Lee Quinn

    Bible prophesy can not be changed. The bible says
    that in the last days there will be a ONE WORLD
    GOVERNMENT. In order for that to happen America
    must collapse and fall. George Soros is currently
    managing or overseeing this decline right now. He
    is getting away with it because the media is owned by the left in general. America will not
    prosper because America has taken God out of the schools and families in general. Christians are
    the minority and its the majority that rules.
    Therefore, its the ungodly non-christians or
    the unbelievers that are ruling this country.
    That is why America will fall. Believe on the
    Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins
    and you will not have to worry no more. Do it
    now while there is still time.

    • Veritas

      1) Christians are most certainly NOT in the minority, approximately 83% of Americans consider themselves to be some type of Christian. Source: http://abcnews.go.com/sections/us/DailyNews/beliefnet_poll_010718.html.

      2) Even if you went outside of the US, Christianity is STILL the majority with 33% of the world population (Approximately 2.1 Billion People) identifying as Christian (with Islam coming in second at 1.3 Billion). In order words, your point is invalid. GUESS WHAT? I HAVE SOURCES: http://geography.about.com/od/culturalgeography/a/popularreligion.htm , http://www.religioustolerance.org/worldrel.htm

      3) This is NOT a Christian Nation anyway. It was founded on the idea of Religious Freedom for ALL, meaning that the government cannot legally sponsor a religion. The Founding Fathers were, for the most part, not Christian. They all agreed that US was to be founded with a SECULAR GOVERNMENT.

      4) George Soros is an athiest, which is probably the reason why you’ve decided to scapegoat him instead of using an anti-semitic remark. Compared to Murdoch, who has used his influence to ruin millions of lives, Soros has given away Billions to help others. Ironically, Soros, an Athiest, has done more to fulfill the Bible’s command to give away all of your wealth to the poor than Murdoch, a Christian, ever has.

    Why are any of you surprised. You fell for the Hegelian Dialectic. We all stood and watched as over 83,000 companies and corporations left this country because we let them. Abraham Lincoln placed protections(tariffs) on incoming goods to protect American jobs. It was called Protectionism. George Bush and Bill Clinton thought they new a better way. Free trade. Ross Perot warned us and we laughed. We deserved what we got. The answer is to replace the lost protectionism and the jobs and prosperity will return with it. The way forward is into Global socialism/communism. The way back to our free and independent Republic is through protectionism. We must reassert our Sovereignty or this country is going to fall. We must return to the constitution not abandon it. Its almost time for the next revolution. Thomas Jefferson once wrote:::”the Tree of Liberty must from time to time be refreshed with the blood of patriots and tyrants”

    The last hope for an end to the wars , the poverty and the control of our monetary system is by electing Ron Paul as president. HE IS THE LAST HOPE. If he is not elected it will be settled with the ********

    If you dont have a job, get up off your butt and find one. Quit blaming everyone else for your demise. If you don’t like the people in office, then get up off your butt and go vote them out of office.
    Stop relying on the government to take care of you. Get up off your butt and take care of yourself.

    The author called it, on how most Americans would react to this fairly grim reality of our current social outlook. You all started farthing about liberals and conservative ******. The only way through this is as a nation united and talking peacefully and sharing ideas.

  • edward guyette

    I for one believe very bad things are coming, just a few things you might want to check: brigades brought back from Iraq and Afgan. an retrained for the sole purpose of civil unrest to come. Fema camps and where are all the trailers that were never uses in New Orleans, Fereral prisions are at full capasity, then why is there 3 once closed revamped an empty. The simple presence of a group called OATH KEEPERS. Civil Defence plans in case of city anarchy to close any Fed. parks. The more people you have recieving public an Fed assistance are dependant totally on Gov.and controlable. For whatever reasons I have seen posted hear it dosent matter, what matters are you going to be able to survive?

  • bonnie

    Our government is a “run a way” machine gun that is out of control . The barrel of that machine gun has became hot becausce we were played. Our weaknewss sought out and used against us. We now have a government so powerful, so embedded that nothing can stop it now. We must prepare ourselves for the unavoidable comming events just as our goverment is doing. The simpliest plan of attack our military will use against its own people is to: 1.) wipe out all power grids 2) stop communications 3)stop supply routes / transportation 4) elimanite food. If we act now (which we wont) and form small communities to over come these four points but alone we dont stand a chance as a matter of fact we will fight, kill and steal from each other. That what our government is depending upon so that we will turn to them for help. At that point they will tell us that ouir government has collasped and the only way to survive is that we must form a one world government to combine the worlds resources to survive. Now listen folks, I only have a high school education but if I have fiqured it out you know dam well they have. Good luck to all Americans !
