17 Quotes About The Coming Global Financial Collapse That Will Make Your Hair Stand Up

Is the world on the verge of another massive global financial collapse?  Yes.  The western world is drowning in an ocean of debt unlike anything the world has ever seen before, and our financial markets are gigantic casinos that are dependent on huge mountains of risk and leverage remaining very stable.  In the end, this house of cards that has been built on a foundation of sand is going to come crashing down in a horrifying manner.  Usually in this column I go on and on about why things will soon get much worse.  But today I am going to take a bit of a break.  Today, I am going to let some of the top financial professionals in the world tell you why things will soon get much worse.  Many of the quotes that you are about to read just might make the hair on the back of your neck stand up.  Most people out there have no idea what is about to happen.  Most people out there are working hard and are busy preparing for the holidays and they are hopeful that the economy will turn around soon.  But that is not going to happen.  We are heading for another major global financial collapse, and when it happens the U.S. economy is going to get even worse.

The epicenter for the coming global financial collapse is almost certainly going to be in Europe.  As you will see below, financial professionals all over the world are sounding the alarm about Europe.  It is a disaster that everyone can see coming but that nobody seems to be able to prevent.

Of course the failure of the “supercommittee” in the United States certainly is not helping matters.  There is already talk that we may soon see another downgrade for U.S. debt.  It is hard to even describe how incompetent the U.S. Congress is.

There is a tremendous lack of leadership both in the United States and in Europe right now.  The financial world is more interconnected than ever before, and when the financial dominoes start to fall it is going to take a miracle to keep a complete and total disaster from unfolding.

So when the time comes, who is going to step forward and provide that leadership?

That is a really, really good question.

Right now, panic and fear are spreading like wildfire in the financial world and nobody knows for sure what is going to happen next.

But one thing is for certain.  Pessimism is growing stronger by the day.

The following are 17 quotes about the coming global financial collapse that will make your hair stand up….

#1 Credit Suisse’s Fixed Income Research unit: “We seem to have entered the last days of the euro as we currently know it. That doesn’t make a break-up very likely, but it does mean some extraordinary things will almost certainly need to happen – probably by mid-January – to prevent the progressive closure of all the euro zone sovereign bond markets, potentially accompanied by escalating runs on even the strongest banks.”

#2 Willem Buiter, chief economist at Citigroup: “Time is running out fast.  I think we have maybe a few months — it could be weeks, it could be days — before there is a material risk of a fundamentally unnecessary default by a country like Spain or Italy which would be a financial catastrophe dragging the European banking system and North America with it.”

#3 Jim Reid of Deutsche Bank: “If you don’t think Merkel’s tone will change then our investment advice is to dig a hole in the ground and hide.”

#4 David Rosenberg, a senior economist at Gluskin Sheff in Toronto: “Lenders are finding it difficult to finance their day-to-day operations with short-term funding. This is a lot like 2008 but with more twists.”

#5 Christian Stracke, the head of credit research for Pimco: “This is just a repeat of what we saw in 2008, when everyone wanted to see toxic assets off the banks’ balance sheets”

#6 Paul Krugman of the New York Times: “At this point I’d guess soaring rates on Italian debt leading to a gigantic bank run, both because of solvency fears about Italian banks given a default and because of fear that Italy will end up leaving the euro. This then leads to emergency bank closing, and once that happens, a decision to drop the euro and install the new lira. Next stop, France.”

#7 Paul Hickey of Bespoke Investment Group: “More and more, we are hearing anecdotal comments from individual and professionals that this is the most difficult environment they have ever experienced as the market is like a fish flopping around after being taken out of the water.”

#8 Bob Janjuah of Nomura International: “Germany appears to be adamant that full political and fiscal integration over the next decade (nothing substantive will happen over the short term, in my view) is the only option, and ECB monetisation is no longer possible. I really think it is that clear and simple. And if I am wrong, and the ECB does a U-turn and agrees to unlimited monetisation, I will simply wait for the inevitable knee-jerk rally to fade before reloading my short risk positions. Even if Germany and the ECB somehow agree to unlimited monetisation I believe it will do nothing to fix the insolvency and lack of growth in the eurozone. It will just result in a major destruction of the ECB‟s balance sheet which will force an ECB recap. At that point, I think Germany and its northern partners would walk away. Markets always want short, sharp, simple solutions.”

#9 Dan Akerson, CEO of General Motors: “The ’08 recession, which was a credit bubble that manifested itself through primarily the real estate market, that was a serious stress….This is much more serious.”

#10 Francesco Garzarelli of Goldman Sachs: “Pressures on Euro area sovereign bond markets have progressively intensified and spread like a wildfire.”

#11 Jim Rogers: “In 2002 it was bad, in 2008 it was worse and 2012 or 2013 is going to be worse still – be careful”

#12 Dr. Pippa Malmgren, the President and founder of Principalis Asset Management who once worked in the White House as an adviser to President Bush: “Market forces are increasingly determining what the options are and foreclosing on options policymakers thought they had. One option which is now under discussion involves permitting a country to temporarily leave the Euro, return to its native currency, devalue, commit to returning to the Euro at a better debt to GDP ratio, a better exchange rate and a better growth trajectory and yet not sacrifice its EU membership. I would like to say for the record that this is precisely the thought process that I expected to evolve,but when I proposed this possibility back in 2009, and again in September 2010, I had a 100% response from clients and others that this was “impossible” and many felt it was “ridiculous”. They may be right but this is the current state of the discussion. The Handelsblatt in Germany has reported this conversation, but wrongly assumes that the country that will exit is Germany. I think that Germany will have to exit if the Southern European states do not. Germany’s preference is to stay in the Euro and have the others drop out. The problem has been the Germans could not convince the others to walk away. But, now, market pressures are forcing someone to leave. Germany is pushing for that someone to be Italy. They hope that this would be a one off exception, not to be repeated by any other country. Obviously, though, if Italy leaves the Euro and reverts to Lira then the markets will immediately and forcefully attack Spain, Portugal and even whatever is left  of the already savaged Greeks. These countries will not be able to compete against a devalued Greece or Italy when it come to tourism or even infrastructure. But, the principal target will be France. The three largest French banks have roughly 450 billion Euros of exposure to Italian debt. So, further sovereign defaults are certainly inevitable, but that is true under any scenario. Growth and austerity will not do the trick, as ZeroHedge rightly points out. Ultimately, I will not be at all surprised to see Europe’s banking system shut for days while the losses and payments issues are worked out. People forget that the term “bank holiday” was invented in the 1930’s when the banks were shut for exactly the same reason.”

#13 Daniel Clifton, a policy strategist with Strategas Research Partners on the potential for more downgrades of U.S. debt: “We would expect further downgrades, a first downgrade from Moody’s and Fitch and possibly a second downgrade from S&P.”

#14 Warren Buffett on the problems in the eurozone: “The system as presently designed has revealed a major flaw. And that flaw won’t be corrected just by words. Europe will either have to come closer together or there will have to be some other rearrangement because this system is not working”

#15 David Kostin, equity strategist for Goldman Sachs: “The wide range of possible outcomes on both the super committee process and the unstable political economy in Europe drives our view that investors should assume the worst while hoping for the best.”

#16 Mark Mobius, the head of the emerging markets desk at Templeton Asset Management: “There is definitely going to be another financial crisis around the corner”

#17 Gerald Celente, founder of The Trends Research Institute: “The whole system is going down. Pull your money out your Fidelity account, your Scwhab accout, and your ETFs.”

Are you starting to get the picture?

When so many top financial professionals are freaking out like this, perhaps the rest of us should start paying attention.

They are telling us that “time is running out”.

They are telling us that “there is definitely going to be another financial crisis”.

They are telling us that this “is going to be worse” than 2008.

They are telling us that “the whole system is going down”.

Yes, a devastating financial collapse really is coming.  Just like in 2008, it will seem like the “end of the world” while it is happening, but it won’t be.  It will severely damage our financial system and our economy, but it will not finish us off.

Think of it this way.  When you build a sand castle at the beach, it doesn’t get totally wiped out by the first wave or the second wave that hits it.  Each wave does significant damage, but the destruction of your sand castle is a process.

It is the same thing with the U.S. economy.  We once had the most incredible economic machine that the world has ever seen.  It is constantly being gutted and the financial crisis of 2008 hit us really hard, but we are still doing okay.

After this next financial crisis we will be in even worse shape.  But we will still be breathing.

More “waves” will come after this next financial crisis.  If we continue on the road that we are on, our economy will progressively get worse and worse.

Not everyone will agree with this analysis, and that is okay.  In the end, time will reveal the truth to all of us.

Right now, we all need to get ready for the next wave that is about to hit us.  A lot of people are going to lose their jobs over the next few years.  Hopefully you are prepared for that.

      • horhey

        I wonder who’s. More ignorant? People who obey an invisible Creator who are witnessing the events of Mathew 24 written 2000 years ago, or people who are watching things unfold and can’t have a real intellengent answer why so many wrong things are happening. Who really is the ignorant. Fyi…I know what’s happening. It’s on track.

        • 007

          I agree, and the irony is this debt crisis is entirely created by mans own doing. The evils and danger of debt is taught throughout the bible. But the socialists thought they knew better with their welfare state and money printing. The socialist teaches you don’t need to work and let the state take care of you. The socialist teaches that debt doesnt matter and it is ok to just print money. The bible teaches that as a man sows, so shall he reap.

          Well, we are seeing the fruits of trying to create a economy based on a crooked fractional reserve banking system, money printing, socialism and covetousness. And thus the world is about to reap what it has sown.

          • Eric

            First of all, I think Jesus would of been a socialist. Jesus wouldn’t approve of 1% owning 93% of a nation’s wealth! That doesn’t fit well with “Love thy neighbor!” the movie “Scrooge” probably didn’t touch your heart. Is that camel fitting through that eye of the needle yet?

            The markets were never more free then they were in the roaring twenties yet we had a crash in 29. Socialism didn’t come into play until Hoover left office. Hoover didn’t even want to pay starving veterans the bonuses that were promised to them. Doesn’t sound like Jesus to me! The fed didn’t print money and ran no deficits. Hard workimg people were left to starve. Very Christian like huh! Then came FDR to save what the free markets failed to do… Feed the people. It’s amazing how people take beatings and still love and support their masters. The “American dream” meme is as powerful as Jim jones! Keep drinking the punch and serve your masters. The treadmill is easier when taking prozac, watching porn, spending borrowed money. But remember, you will always be on a treadmill that powers your master’s house of cards and your master isn’t really jesus…

    • Melanie

      Stocking up on things that money won’t be able to buy….it will happen and things will get worse. Not a doomsday preacher here, just a realist who happens to believe that since every prophecy in the Bible that has come to pass has been 100% accurate, then the rest of the prophecies in the Bible will be 100% accurate. And no, it might not say in exact words that there will be a financial failure next year, but it does say that there will come a time when there will be a one world currency, and for that to happen, then other currencies must go away. Seems clear to me that this is the beginning of our currency and others making way for the one world currency to arrive. Just my opinion.

      I’m not familiar withe the lord, wtf are you tarking about

  • r.bitting

    Your article is likley to have little effect stirring the masses into action this week Michael, you see, it’s almost Black Friday ( America’s answer to the running of the bulls ) and their probably not at their computer, their camping outside Walmart so they can trample somebody to death when the doors open that morning, all to save 80 dollars on the newest flat screen tv. America will die, and the post-mortem will reveal that the cause of death was moral collapse. The financial and political failures of America are only the symptoms of the disease. Want America to be what she once was? Then it has to start at the family level with a return to morality and a return to our creator, in humility and with a repentant heart. I read these articles every day and I am amazed by how many people think the solution to America’s ills are to be found in politics. They honestly believe that an individual or group of individuals can make it right.They are half right, but they need to quit looking on a ballot to find this individual, and go and look in the mirror to find him or her. Unless the people return to what this country was founded on, the God of the Bible, it will surely only continue to get worse. If you think things are bad now, wait until the entitlement nation is faced with the austerity measures that will have to be implemented when the house of cards comes down ( medicare, medicaid, social security, foodstamps and the like ) and it most definitely will come down. Read Romans ch. 1 and Dueteronomy ch. 28 people, and see your future before it happens. I venture to say that you will not recognize your neighbor in the months to come, it will come down to survival, and they have kids to feed. Follow that to it’s logical conclusion. America – God = no more America… You people won’t elect your way out of this mess, the way out is through God. Better wise up quick..

    • Michael

      Yes, “Black Friday” is almost upon us once again.

      *Sigh*

      And Deuteronomy chapter 28 is a very important chapter of the Bible. I would encourage everyone to read that entire chapter.

        Mate…I respect the fact people have inner beliefs…lots of them. This is a very good site (along with the other one) you have set up but I would try and be a bit more ‘neutral’ as a lot of us do not believe in deities, divine intervention, etc, etc. Just saying.

        • Michael

          I always say that people can disagree with me.

          But I have never hidden the fact that I am a Christian. If others want to express other views I allow them to do that.

          If believing in God does not make me “neutral”, then I guess I am not neutral.

          Just because I believe in God does not mean that you should feel threatened.

          Michael

If he can’t interact with his readership without being honest about his beliefs, then he might as well quit writing because he will have let people like yourself neuter him ( are you getting it yet? neutral/ neuter ). If it bothers you to read the comment, then the question begs, why do you?

      • PUNKY BREWSTER

        Michael,

        Although from another article, I just wanted to say this about the “Super-Congress/Committee” massive failure:

        You know life sucks when you whiddle down the legislative gridlock from 535 people down to 12, and even with that massive reduction in human roadblocks and behind closed doors in a sealed room, they still can’t cut a deal……

        If Presidents in this day and age were smart dictators, they would dissolve the Congress (both House and Senate) and rule like a
        Roman Emperor……………

      • REED RICHARDS

        Michael,

        I agree with r.bitting here. The masses in amerika can not be bothered with such trivial nonsense as this. If the President of the dis-United States can tell people to go shopping in the aftermath of the Sept 11 terror attacks, why should not the same rule apply now? President Obama should just tell the amerikan people not to worry about any impending doom and gloom, but simply to go shopping………..

        • DB200

          Shopping can become an addiction. It then has the same effect as any other addiction like drugs, sex, alcohol etc. namely that it leads to (debt) slavery, a poor mental and physical health and broken relationships. Telling people to go shopping to solve problems is therefore just as immoral as telling people to go drinking …..

      • Mark

        I hate to tell you this, Michael, but Deuteronomy is a story of occupation and genocide, a story of a wandering tribe of vandals invading another people’s land in no respect of their sovereignty.

        What non-Christians read there is a tale on par with the White genocide of Native Americans thanks to Manifest Destiny.

      • http://www.youtube.com/safearmsreview SafearmsReview

        On a small scale, I see that being disobedient has its consequences in my life. How much more when our govt & officials scoff at God’s principles & try to manipulate everything from money to morality for filthy lucre?

        A whole lot more = the damage will be great.

        However those that are obedient & righteous will pass thru the storm with His peace.

        :)

    • Gary2

      I actually agree that it starts with the family and that black Friday is getting out of hand.

      I love the target employees who are protesting the early opening of the stores that is cutting into their FAMILY time on the holiday.

      I would be interested in how the right wing Christian family values party (gag) will react to that one as they are so in love with the free market crap.

      • REED RICHARDS

        Gary2,

        SERIOUSLY? FAMILY VALUES INDEED. YEAH RIGHT:

        And disrupt any activity designed to attain the Almighty Dollar? Gary, bite your tongue, you talk utter nonsense………..(LOL)

      • DB200

        The free market is not crap. As long as there are laws in place that prevent monopolies and misuse of power as the robber barons did.

        Moses got pretty good economic laws that gave a free market with rules. One of them was a sabbath year. In this year all debts were cancelled and people who were enslaved because they couldn’t pay their debts, were set free again. The benefit was that you’d think twice about lending someone money he won’t be able to pay back. If so,he could become your slave but within 7 years would be a free man again. And of course, if you were enslaved because of debt and freed after maximum 7 years, you would think twice about taking on debt again.

        Also profit maximization was forbidden. If you picked grapes but forgot a few, still hanging, it was forbidden to go back and pick them. These were meant for the poor, who could search the land for crops left over after the harvest was done.

        This was God’s plan but it failed. The Jewish people forgot about the sabbath year. After they were transported off to Babylon, the land was barren and unused for 70 years. Each year represented a sabbath year that was not honored.

        Personally I am convinced that if you labour 6 days and rest one as a country, this country would become richer that the country that chooses for a 24/7 economy. For me, this means that we won’t go shopping on Sunday but instead go to family or go hiking.

      • nowwthen

        The true Christian families sincerely dislike the displays of materialistic obsession on black friday even moreso than you. We dislike it because it distorts and is counter to the true reason for the Season. You dislike black friday because it reminds you that many of the 99% have earned disposable income that they don’t feel guilty about not sharing with the likes of you.

      “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

      AGREED R.B. You hit the nail on the head .

    • Paul

      Just for info:

      Germany works entirely without all this god-fearing stuff. There is nobody in high office running around and telling people that Germany needs to be blessed by god.

      If you want to believe in god, allah, or whatever you want to call her, you are free to do so. And if you want to watch football on Saturday afternoon you can do that, too.

      • GreenMountain

        JUST FOR INFO:

        Angela Merkel, leader of Germany, is the Chair of the Christian Democratic Union / Christian Social Union, two major political parties in Germany.

        Gee, how many political parties are there in the US, Paul, that have religions in their name?

        About the parties: “The CDU is Christian-based, applying the principles of Christian democracy and emphasizing the “Christian understanding of humans and their responsibility toward God.”

        And: “The traditional strongholds of the party are concentrated in rural and Catholic regions such as the Eifel, Münsterland, Sauerland, Fulda district, Emsland, Oldenburger Münsterland, the Thuringia Eichsfeld as well as areas in Nordfriesland, Saxony, Schwaben, Vorpommern, Taunus, and smaller cities such as Baden-Baden, Konstanz, and Pforzheim.”

        So, I’m guessing, the reason why “no one is running around telling people that Germany needs to be blessed by God” is that because the good German people already live somewhat morally in the first place.

        Hmmm……….[Jon Stewart wise-a$$ face here]…..how many major political parties in the US have this type of open religion stated in their party platforms, Paul?

        Oh, the irony!

        What people don’t understand is that, although the US is one of the most conservative countries in the world, it is also about the most Progressive and secular.

        Imagine that.

        • SMASH THE CONTROL MACHINE

          Now, you must remember before Hitler rose to Chancellor of Germany the country was in a deep economic depression due to the Versailles treaty. The Versailles treaty demanded that Germans made financial reparations for the previous war and Germany simply was not self sufficient enough in order to pay the debt. Hitler was the leader that raised Germany out of the depression and brought them back to a world recognized power. Due to his annulment of the financial woes of the Germanic people he became their redeemer and they anointed him as the leader of the German Reich Christian Church in 1933. This placed him in power of the German Christian Socialist movement which legislates their political and religious agendas. It united all denominations, mainly the Protestant/Catholic and Lutheran people to instill faith in a national Christianity.

          • Jeremy

            LOL. Hitler was a follower of dark magic and the occult. Christian, Catholic and Jewish clergy alike denounced him for his and the beliefs of the the Nazi party, and were horrified at the silence in the papacy.

        • Paul

          Well, parties in Germany are about winning elections and earn a lot of money as Politician (you know, like America, where every senator and governor is a millionaire, and you only find a cleaner in the senate after all senators have left). So party names are about deceiving voters.

          That’s also why the NAtional SoZIalist Workers Party put Socialist and Worker into the name to get all those votes from workers and socialists and nationalists.

      • Jeremy

        When was the last time Germany had to foot the bill for its’ national defense?

        There are many things to appreciate about Germany and its culture, but like most other godless European nations, they lack the intestinal fortitude to confront and destroy true evil (and evil does exist). It is pathetic to see how political correctness and liberty-crushing regulation have stifled an entire continent’s ability to defend itself from, for example, Muslim extremism.

    • Kathleen

      This is BS. We need to return to basic values, but not necessarily the Bible. There are many faiths in this country, we are not a total Christian country. (Thank God ) We need to be inclusive and work together. Put aside our petty religious differences and become a nation again. I abhor all the name calling, infighting, tyranny, and fear. Where there is fear there is hate. Where there is hope there is love. I would rather love my neighbor than hang out the window with a gun. I don’t dislike any religion, but the Christian Coalition is part of what’s wrong with this country. They have no tolerances for anyone that is different. Bigots, one and all.

      • r.bitting

        Which God are you thanking? All the major religions hold exclusive beliefs that stand in stark contrast to one another, so they all can’t be true. What you have essentially just said is that if I think 2+2=4 and you think it equals 5, we are both right. Also, never judge a philosophy based on it’s abuses. Yes, there are plenty of examples of failure within the church you could point to, but that does’nt make it not true. Is’nt that like saying if one man is a rapist, then they all are? You say you don’t dislike any religion, but in the same paragraph, you thank God that your not a christian… flip flop much?

      • Highspeed

      • Jeremy

        As a Christian, I agree with this. The liberties enjoyed by the Bill of Rights were never intended to introduce a theocracy into the US.

        As a Christian attorney, it is my belief that our liberties, founded upon lessons from the Protestant Reformation and primacy of God to any earthly ruling authority, enshrined in fundamental principles of freedom and independence, inculcate an environment of acceptance and prosperity. It is not perfect, but the system allows for flexibility to change.

      Right on brother,Romans chapter 1:18-32 says it all.Professing themselves to be WISE,they became FOOLS!
      18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

      19Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

      20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

      21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

      22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

      23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

      24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

      25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

      26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

      27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

      28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

      29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

      30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

      31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

      32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
      This was right before the fall of the roman empire.
      No similarities at all-LOL!

      I would graciously like to make the claim that basic moral values that made this country what is today, came from the Bible. They are the 10 commandments they used to be held in esteem in this country even by those who weren’t Christian. They good moral ethics to govern oneself by. However these new atheists feel that reading the and recognizing the 10 commendments means their freedoms are being infringed upon, and now they have all been removed from public life. So what can you expect when these aren’t being exposed to next generation. I also agree it will require the rebuilding of the family but will first have to start with rebuilding of the institution of marraige. One huge reason for our moral collapse is the 50% divorce rate. This has caused children to become marginalized as the single parents now have to work many hours to keep the bills paid and children end up growing up without stability in the home. Once we repair our marriages and families, it will spread through our communities. Also their need to be stricter laws on wlefare and entitlements to make sure only those who absolutely need it get it. Not those that get it just because looser restriction have made them eligable.

  • Gary2

    As everyone knows the solution is simple-Tax the rich and spread the wealth. Fortunately this is coming. There is trillions in the hands of the few wealthy and we need to tax it away to solve the problems. No one needs to be a billionaire so we can start there and work our way down to 100,000 per year.

    It is not stealing to take what was stolen from you in the first place. The rich have stolen productivity increases and we are gonna tax them hard and give the money back to the rightful owners-the workers.

    Before some goof says we are punishing the job creators let me inform you I just dropped one in the toilet.

    • DB200

      So the solution would be high taxes? Let me give you an idea, how a high tax environment like Europe looks like:

      earnings: 100
      payroll taxes: 37
      pension fund: 11
      health insurance: 6

      net earnings: 45

      Suppose these earnings are completely spent on goods and services, this means you are hit by a 20% VAT. Again 9 to the government. The economy keeps 36 of what started with 100. Cheers!

    The depression of the 1930s did not begin with the crash of 29. That was but a prelude. The real depression began with the default of Austria’s Creditanstalt bank in 1931. This led to a tsunami of bank failures in Austria, Germany, France, Italy, the UK, etc; and it was the nail in the coffin for hundreds of US banks. Now, major banks are far more over leveraged than was the case in the 1930s. Now, the economies of each and every nation state are even more tightly intertwined than in the 1930s. And, information travels at the speed of an electron instead of the speed of a telegraph wire.

    Once the panic starts it will spread within the blink of an eye. What took a few months in 1931 will unfold in a few days. The pivotal event, the so called tipping point, has not yet occurred. However, it will happen within a matter of months. Get ready for the deepest depression in economic history.

    Every time there’s a systemic economic crisis all the religious moralists come out of the woodwork saying “this time it’s moral decay” and “only god can save us”. Uh huh, well how many times have such claims quietly faded into oblivion because they were wrong? Just in the West we’ve been through this sort of calamity many, many times before and each time there’s been a cacophony of religious doom sayers just like you – and always profoundly wrong. But keep it up who knows, maybe the 27th or the 50th time will be a charm! Yes, by all means read Deuteronomy, but don’t count on finding a chapter that’s prophetic about the outcome of financial crises!

    • Jeremy

      Read about the Mistress of Babylon in Revelations, which speaks clearly about the outcome of financial crises.

      And there has been a moral decay in this country. I saw it every day when I grew up, when our nation was prosperous. Unfortunately, most of those people, when given a little, solely worked for more and more. They became greedy. A biblical principle states that “the love of money is the root of all evil.”

      These are only two examples of the relevance of biblical principles in our lives. Just because you do not find any relevance does not mean that it is irrelevant.

    The economic collapse is nothing more than a shift in the economic system from one form to another. It may seem chaotic to us but in fact it is well calculated. The pain to the he masses of people is considered to be collateral damage and is expected from the herd who have no idea of what is going on.

    In the very near future a person will be allowed to enter this world owing a bill for the air that he breathes and the water that he consumes. He will be given the opportunity to pay back his debt to society by working and receiving credits, This means that all human activity will have to be measured and the cost will be calculated so that an aggregate cost of mankind’s existence can be made and then an individual’s bill debited to his account adjusted for race, location and certain choices such as marriage, child birthing, housing, meat eating and so on.

    The proponents behind this kind of controlled society will be the “Technocrats” whose job it will be to make sure that the carrying capacity of the Earth is not exceeded. Of course the same Technocrats will be exempt from the standard rules of life because of their contribution to society.

    If you think I am joking hear this: I had a business associate who was from Belgium. His parents worked for the EU. As a result he was allowed to attend a private school made up of the children of EU bureaucrats and no one else. They shopped in special stores and ate special food. They lived in special neighborhoods.

In a few years (or months) they will be nothing but typed numbers on a piece of paper.

    Sorry, I don’t understand all the fuss.

    Our company didn’t take any loan and doesn’t have any debts. The company was growing in the last year. Just a little bit less than in the year before. We reduced some prices to our customers to help them through these difficult times, and there was no pay rise for the top managers. Just a little rise for the lowest paid employees. We are still looking for more employees to get all the work done, as orders keep coming in.

    Could it be that there is a different world outside of this banking crisis?

    NOBODY of all those financial “experts” has seen the crisis coming. And nobody has changed their behaviour to avoid this crisis. Full speed against the wall, and then blame the wall, or the weather, and laugh at the people who told you there would be a wall.

    People like the greens who told you that it is good for your wallet to save fuel, were laughed at, because fuel was so cheap at that time. And when the fuel price shot through the roof and people couldn’t pay their mortgage anymore, because their income was not enough to pay for fuel, home, food, education, health and entertainment at the same time (like the left told you), it was called a banking crisis.

    And people still elect Democrats and Republicans instead of …

    Christianity is the delusion that most just cannot let go of; the many times repeated story of a solar/SUN/Son savior. Whether it is Horus from 5000 years ago with the exact same story or Jesus in the age of Pisces.

    Let go. It is YOU that has a chance to prepare without that delusional crutch.

    I know the story of Jesus sounds great. But it is Santa Claus for adults. Change the world Jesus or Son to SUN and the bible makes sense.

    He is risen. He will come again in the clouds. He is the light. On and on and on. SUN! Very simple.

    At some point most of the readers believed in our political system or monetary system and now they know they are frauds. The whole Jesus thing is no different. The whole New Testament is the story of the characters of the Zodiac as they are met by the SUN as it travels from house to house.

    16 solar saviors came before the current Santa, Jesus. Crow picking nice parts of the Bible won’t change that.

    • Michael

      The Jesus/Horus connection has been so thoroughly debunked that it is amazing that anyone still brings it up.

      If you really want to look into something real, you should look into the connections between Horus and somebody named Nimrod.

      The truth is that there a mountain of evidence for the Christian faith. Jesus is very, very real and hopefully everyone that reads this site will come to understand this.

      Michael

      • sharonsj

        Don’t know about that, but the Jesus/Maitreya connection is documented. Their stories are identical because the Emperor Constantine was a sun-worshipper and Dec. 25th is the day Maitreya is resurrected after three days of darkness. In any case, sorry, but our problems cannot be solved by religion. What we need is cooperation and real facts.

        • Michael

          Hordes of “sun gods” were born on December 25th. Once again, this goes all the way back to ancient Babylon and someone known as “Nimrod”.

          Jesus was not born on December 25th. He was actually born during the fall during the Feast of Tabernacles. For about 1000 years in advance, God had his people gather every year in the area of the world where the Messiah would be born (Bethlehem is about 5 miles from Jerusalem), at the exact time of the year when he would be born and had them live in humble temporary shelters which foreshadowed the exact circumstances that the Messiah would be born into.

          Sadly, most churches have totally lost the prophetic implications of the Biblical feast days.

          Yes, Constantine was a sun-worshipper and after he “legalized” Christianity he helped to incorporate many pagan elements into the state church.

          But the Bible has nothing about December 25th in it.

          And the resurrection of Jesus Christ was a very real historical event. The following are a couple of links that can get you started If you are interested in looking into it….

        There are 2 reasons religion exists:

          On point number 2, it was the idea of a personal relationship with God which ultimately contributed to the fall of monarchial rule, and the rise of representative democracy (or in the US, the republic).

          It is true. Just bringing up the name of “Jesus” can instantly change a conversation or silence a room.

It gives good insight in all the facts that point towards Jesus Christ. Especially for a skeptic and atheist it makes very interesting reading.

    Many of the experts want the printing presses to run full speed. Gerald Celente should have taken his own advise as he got burned in the MF Global mess. This debt driven economy does not work. In the end we hit the debt wall and running into a wall hurts. We have this idea that the financial services industry creates wealth. These paper pushers, number crunchers and Bsnksters in the end are just vampires that suck the blood of the real economy. They do not produce products that we need to live. They dilute the wealth that people that labor and design things produce. The central bankers create money out of thin air, loan the money to their banker buddies, these buddies then loan this fake wealth to governments and the taxpayers then pay interest back to the bankers forever. Quite a scam. Some of this paper pushing is needed and is ok. Do we really need all of the lawyers, insurance companies, wall streeters and big government workers? The economy can’t handle the costs of these non-producers. The funny thing about this is that most of this useless nonproducer class is running the country and continue to feather their nests. Between these useless profesionals and the class of takers that just want welfare or a free lunch is more than we can support.

    the emotional meaderings (religious) here do not suffice for that which is common sense and also some of that which is historically incorrect…you can easily find (verify) the leanings of washington/jackson and other founders of the US (get a book and/or google it)as they professed openly a dislike/disdain for the word GOD and/or bible to be mentioned in government affairs…the country WAS NOT founded on the JEWISH god of the bible (ref deuteronomy)–remember moses wrote the old testament and/or most of it…and as a close acquaintence, who is a kosher butcher, and i agreed — it doesn’t matter religion as much as common sense…philosophy and psychology, which can border on religion at times, tells us about human nature and the ill effects of undeveloped minds as well as developed minds, ie intellect…one doesn’t need to be christian to figure out what went wrong here and/or from the US as many other worldwide religions share common sense morals and ethics though not via the same christian GOD…personally i’m a theosophist and no i don’t sacrifice virgins and/or animals to appease the christian god as they did often in the bible…i do think the seven deadly sins sums up a great deal of morality and remember they don’t appear anywhere in the bible…however the one verse from the bible that would apply to all that has happened, though it’s frequently misquoted, is –“for the love of money is the root of all evil” not that money itself is the root of all evil…and that has nothing to do with having to return to family or not (though it does help)–ie, stop making excuses for the behaviour of the people who created this debacle by using god from the bible…these people (bastards?) already have enough excuses (laws on their side)…and personally, if one steps back and reads from ALL sources, it’s doubtful that this was all accidental, ie as science fiction becomes science fact, conspiracy theory is becoming conspiracy fact…that’s what’s scary as that would indicate preplanning decades in the making…and most likely from individuals who profess to being of good christian/jewish morals and have families…some even attend church (synagogue) on a semi regular basis as i’ve observed…i do recommend a four part series from the BBC called –Century of the Self…it does an excellent job, in a short amount of time, showing how this all came to fruition while starting some 100 years ago (can be streamed via youtube or other sources directly to your computer for free)…finally, there’s strange occurences happening to some on a global basis that defies logic and/or coincedence and i’m thinking that it indicates a major shift in the human condition which might render the economic conditions as moot…that’s all i can figure out since though i talk to that which we call GOD on a nightly basis and anytime needed he hasn’t said much…makes me wonder sometimes if he’s getting my messages from his assistants…ah yes he/she does have a sense of humour…who knows maybe he’s like me–laughing to keep from crying at times…michael

      Ah yes, the BBC. You just answered my question. Maybe you should access additional sources on the subject. The kosher butcher and the BBC hardly qualify.

        is it possible that you didn’t watch the documentary since by the tone you have a negative view of the BBC and hence are making some judgemental decision(s) since your the one that says your question was answered (which i couldn’t answer since you didn’t ask it) or did i strike a chord within you that might have opened up some unanswered questions you have with your own faith…in psyche we would call it tranference/projection…well belly up to the bar brother and ask the question…and what else did you say–maybe i should try different sources–ah is that judgemental since you’ve no idea what sources i read/watch???…again, from a psyche standpoint it would appear i struck a chord in your belief systems though i’d need to get you on the couch for that but you couldn’t afford it since it’s free…but it wouldn’t surprise me in the least…and were you there when i was speaking with my kosher butcher, who devoutly ovserves the sabbath, in a jewish neighborhood where the rabbi is the focal point…i could just assess you as an atypical christian who is somewhat misinformed and judgemental and fearful of redemption of your soul–but that is an ssumption on my part…but intellect tells me to ASK and not ASS-ume…sort of like the ASS-umption that i’m not pleasing god…maybe i am more than you know or are you running a race to be gods favourite…i’ll make it easy for you–you win!!!…you know i take care of seniors in their final days and help them to decide on how they want their final wishes to be observed…i always suggest they speak with god–not jesus, not the kakli, not mohammad, not quan yin and/or any other ascended masters…you so funny what with your ambiguity and assumtions–but that’s why i use the term atypical…ps…i also have conversations with catholics, jewish, buddahists, etc…i don’t limit myself and MOTU (Master of the Universe)in his/her own way presents that which i need to read and/or be exposed to at the right times in life…but does he actually answer me–well in the old days that would be rubber room and straight jacket talk…see since i take care of seniors in a home enviroment i have all the time to read from different websites, including muslim and the eastern religions as well as science that negates some of that good old fashioned religion and i go to the library at least twice a week…remember in the future to ask and not ASS-ume as you might find i have a handle on many subjects and when i don’t know i know where to research…my father had suggested i become a professional student however my SAT’s weren’t strong enough so i make my own curriculum which means i need to read things that i personally may not agree with but sometimes i’m pleasantly surprised to find there’s others who share similar views…that was due to the help of a close friend up at Stanford…i would say by the responses i’ve seen in this article–your a bit of a minority, which doesn’t mean your wrong, but maybe you need to expand/expound a bit more intellectually and not be a “repeater” of what’s been told to you???…i can’t wait to see Avi, the kosher butcher and tell him about you…he as well as the sunday school teachers i know (mormon and catholic mainly) would find you an interesting person to sit with…one last thing…how do you know it’s impossible to please god without faith or was that something you read and/or someone told you…since you want to appear to be the devout christian you should know that concept would be an impossibility with him/her since many on the planet have not been exposed to christianity…ahhh that ASS-uming will get ya every time…peace luv babe and when i vegas look me up…

        • r.bitting

          ” Without faith it is impossible to please God ” is a quote from the New Testament, which your kosher freind does not believe was inspired by God. In regard to you advising those on their death beds not to pray in the name of Jesus, and the fact that you consult with those of other faiths, this simply says that you are unsure and are looking for answers ( the very thing you accuse me of… you know, when you struck a chord in my belief system.. don’t bet the farm on that ). You seem to be saying that you believe that there are many ways to God, which I find very interesting, because the different religions you consult all claim to be exclusive. Your freinds the kosher butcher, the catholic, and the morman, if they truly believe what they claim to believe would concur on this point, because they all claim to be the only way. Ask the butcher if it’s o.k to pray to Baal or ask the catholic or the mormon if God would mind being addressed as Allah. ALL TRUTH BY DEFINITION IS EXCLUSIVE.. Red is not blue or both red and blue. My questions to you are these, dear friend, What specifically do you believe and what do you base that belief on? Jesus said that he is the way, the truth, and the life, and that no man will come to the Father except through him. That statement is an exclusive statement and it’s either true or it’s not. It would seem your mission is clear, prove that statement to be false. Good luck, 2000 years of church history have yielded no evidence to disprove the claims of Christ or the ressurrection account. Maybe you should refrain from advising any more seniors until you know that you have the truth, lest you misguide them. Again, what do you believe and what is it based on?

      i do find i need to correct myself from the original post i made…when referencing washington i had included jackson…it should have been jefferson (it was about five in the morning)…and for those who don’t mind doing some extra reading you might call up RED ICE CREATIONS as the front page story concerns jefferson, as well as washington/franklin and others, who were the designers of the US…and yes it tracks back over to france…one final thought as we enter into 2012–many of us have been following earth changes ranging from quakes, storms, etc…there will surely be the religious fanatics who will blame this on gods anger and wrath…it’s actually cyclical which is more scientific than the christian gregorian calendar which is linear…my view of god precludes him/her from having emotional problems and taking out his anger and needing anger management classes…still haven’t figured out why religions want to assign human emotions to an omnipotent entity which i do firmly believe in as some things just defy logic…and if michael doesn’t mind another site being mentioned—extinction protocol 2012 as it does cover a range of events that are occurring from earth changes to manmade events, ie financial collapses…funny thing and/or ironic thing–for those who remember a little movie called soylent green???…the dateline of the movie i believe is 2019…hmmm…i understand we taste like chicken…and is there anyone who’s following all these events who even bother paying attention to the reports of future stats–do they think we’re going to make it to 2025 as is and what about the year 2525…

It is my recommendation that ALL customers withdraw from all of the markets as soon as possible so that they have the best chance of protecting themselves and their equity. The system is no longer functioning with integrity and is suicidally risk-laden. The rule of law is non-existent, instead replaced with godless, criminal political cronyism.”

  • Barn Cat

    We’re going to see a complete economic collapse and hyperinflation. The US has trillion dollar deficits. It’s been printing what it can’t borrow. It’s only a matter of time before we have hyperinflation like Germany had in the 1920s. People won’t be able to afford food or any basic necessities. There won’t be electricity, running water, police, fire, or any government services. We’re going to see mass starvation and total anarchy in the US and around the world. We have a year’s supply of food and water along with guns, ammo, kerosene heaters, kerosene, a camp stove, and Coleman Fuel. I believe the Rapture is less than a year away but I’m still preparing in every way possible.

  • Martin

    I keep hearing the warning. I keep seeing a call to action and want to do what I can to have a plan of action yet I never see anything printed that provides a guide aimed at helping us be ready to ride out the coming storm. I know the storm is coming, what are some things we can do to help us make it through the storm?

    • Barn Cat

      Stock up on a year’s supply of food and water. Buy guns and ammo. You need a way to cook your food and heat your home without electricity. Kerosene heaters, a camp stove, kerosene, and Coleman fuel work for me. Invest some of your money in physical gold and silver.

    • Josh

      Martin, there are plenty of websites out there. Just start typing in survival-related phrases in Google. Many sites are dedicated entirely to providing info for surviving the coming economic collapse. Here is one particular article/website I found intriguing.

  • what?

    r.bitting – i concur. Along the same lines why has Israel done so well in the past 50 years? B/c they are God’s chosen people. I am thankful to serve the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and for the Saviour he has sent to us. Patiently awaiting his return while working to further his Kingdom.

    • Tim

      “That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.” (Romans 9:8)

      Not all of Abraham’s physical descendants are the chosen people of God. It’s Abraham’s spiritual seed who are God’s chosen people.

      “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Galatians 3:29)

      And that does include some national Israelites.

      Also, see Ephesians 1:4.

  • John Bates

    America – God = No More America? By this logic non-christian countries like China shouldn’t be prospering. No Morality = No America? Could be, if you mean the morality of Wall Street and Bankers. These theives have co-opted 90% of the congress into believing perposterous obcenties like: trust the market to regulate itself. Thus our national political nightmare. Together we created this impending armageddon by willfully forgetting the #1 lesson of the last depression: the market will eat you alive if it can make a buck off it.

    • Jeremy

      It depends on what you mean by prosperity? Is prosperity making millions of dollars, yet having no friends, no family, and vainly pursuing more?

      By the way, the Christian movement in China is growing rapidly.

    • r.bitting

      Christianity is growing at an incredible rate in China, whereas here in the West the growth is flat. Maybe your answer to why China is emerging and we are fading is found in the contrast between the two. Read Deuteronomy 28.

    I would agree with with bitting…completely. although not a religious person, the complete descent into imorality in North America (I’m in Canada), is all to obvious. Gay marriage, overt sexuality just a cpl of symptons that stick out. North americans are so celebrity, game/”reality” show focused as to be oblivious to what is going on around them. Reminds one of the Roman empire AD..hmm seems to me that empire collapsed as well. That collapse started within from exactly the same reasons and I would note was completed when invaders hit the border. How are you going to pay your servicemen to keep those invaders at by if you are insolvent.? thank about that one folks..sems to me that also was an issue in the Roman collapse.

    I think the coming global financial collapse is going to be a launching point for something bigger.

    One of the goals of the New World Order is to have a common world currency. So why not tear down all of the major world economies, rebuild and introduce a new currency while your at it.

    As long as things are going good, people are resistant to change. When people get hungry, they will take anything they can get.

    I see the plan as to reduce the major economies to nothing, let the people worry, then the New World Order will throw the people a solution, which the people will eagerly accept.

    We sold calves last week for an unheard of $1.75/lb on the hoof. Still didn’t do much more than break even due to paying for more feed during the drought. That is more proof beef prices are headed north so stock up now.

    Also, most readers like me scroll on once we read the first sentence of a faith-bashing post. Faith is a choice and if you choose not to believe, please don’t attempt to denigrate those of us who do. We believe that one day every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and that the time is close. Time will tell.

    Joel 2:1-2
    1Blow a trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming; surely it is near,
    2A day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness as the dawn is spread over the mountains, so there is a great and mighty people; there has never been anything like it, nor will there be again after it to the years of many generations.

    Zephaniah 1:14
    14Near is the great day of the LORD, near and coming very quickly; listen, the day of the LORD! In it the warrior cries out bitterly.

    That is why you must prepare and be prepared-when the tribulation tiem occurs, its too late then for preparation…

    1For it is superfluous for me to write to you about this ministry to the saints;
    2for I know your readiness, of which I boast about you to the Macedonians, namely, that Achaia has been prepared since last year, and your zeal has stirred up most of them.
    3But I have sent the brethren, in order that our boasting about you may not be made empty in this case, so that, as I was saying, you may be prepared;

    Ha that picture of the kid is cute. Lol. Yeah everyone is living the high life on Barry Bucks and bailouts, but like Al Pacino in Carlito’s Way said “Here comes the Pain!!” and Master Yoda would say “Begun this economic collapse has.” I for one am grateful to God everyday when I wake up and go to bed that I have a job. Not just any ol’ Mcjob or doing something I hate. But I truly love what I do. I give the glory to Jesus and pray for plenty to do and good weather. Usually It comes out ok. To the non-believers out there I hated God once upon a time too. When my son died of SIDS back in ’05 I gave up 3 years of soberiety and cursed God everyday. I was a miserable wreck for about 5 years afterword. Now I am basking in the sunlight of the spirit. Life is ok. I dont want the world to end next year. I want to see the new Avengers movie and the new Dark Night. Anne Hathaway is Catwoman, Meow! So to hell with the doom and gloom, Im praying against it. Damn the torpedos! Oh I hope they never make another Transformers movie Enough is Enough! So if you think Im dumb for going off topic too bad. Sometimes ignorance is bliss. I think 90% of americans dont give a rat’s ass. I warned people for years and now Im just sick and tired of it. My pop says you make your bed now lie in it. So take your medicine america. If anything The rocky mountain states should leave the union. Peace, love and apathy fellow NWO wage slaves!

  • Maria

    The world is experiencing global societal collapse which is accelerating. As the collapse progresses, the discord of humanity is magnified. We have all fallen into the trap…conservative against progressive, rich against poor, Christian against non-Christian, Muslim against infidel, nation against nation, neighbor against neighbor. Every issue has become a battlefield.

    The longer this continues, the more difficult it will be to resolve. It is insanity, and the only results of insanity are utter chaos and total destruction. No one wins.

    All the finger-pointing is useless. Solutions require ideas. Solutions require cooperation. Solutions require sacrifice, honesty and commitment.

    I hear none of that here or from the mouths of the leaders who are supposed to lead our nations into recovery. How do we expect to resolve anything in this environment?

    People like Bill Still have fairly simple economic solutions that work, except that a reasonable solution cast into a sea of corruption will fail.

    The hourglass of opportunity is about to run out of sand.

    Pray and prepare.

    18- Larry Lang – Chair Professor of Finance at the Chinese University of Hong Kong: “Chinese regime is in a serious economic crisis—on the brink of bankruptcy”

    • lmao rednecks

      lmao rednecks. Larry Lang counted local government debt into his statistics. China’s NATIONAL debt is extremely low (7%) and they have 3 trillion in reserves. In the worst case scenario, the national government will bail out the local governments and China’s reserves and taxpayers will pay for it. Worst case scenario, they print money and back it up with China’s industrial machine that’s already at overcapacity (which means that there’s actually not enough money to go around and that printing money would HELP their economy). That’s the beauty of having a state owned central bank and actually making things.

      On the contrary, the quoted US debt is also just national debt… and national debt is already at -14.5 trillion dollars. State debt is another 22% of GDP at 2 trillion dollars. So the US government alone is -16.5 trillion in the hole, and has no reserves to pay for it. If taxes increase any more in the US, there will be a revolution, since the US has some of the highest tax rates in the world for some of the worst service.

      The US cannot pay for its debt. It cannot raise new revenue. It cannot conquer another resource rich nation. All it can do is wait for death.

      • Jeremy

        Hey arsehole, the Chinese local governments underreported their debt last March by $1 Trillion (Bloomberg News).

        High CPI this year, lack of incentive under the law for small scale business creation (depending on the bureaucrat can be very difficult), rising labor prices, decrease in foreign investment inflows, lack of jobs for the growing quantity of college graduates, and possible housing bubble make Chinese development not as a sure thing as the past.

        So before you insult the intelligence of another person, check your own facts.

      • thiscreepingmalaise

        Actually the debt clock tipped 15 trillion last week and is up another 43 billion. The state and local debt is another 3 trillion combined putting us at 18+ trillion in debt and if you add our unfunded liabilities like medicare, social security and prescription drugs that adds another 116 trillion dollars.

  • BenjiK

    This may seem cliche’, but I wanted to share this personal story with you guys. A “friend of the family”, who is a retired “fed” consultant and has intimate knowledge of global financial systems has been harping on us for the last few years to invest in gold and precious metals, but said something shocking in a conversation yesterday. He is no longer investing in any precious metals and has advised us to invest as heavily as we can in personal commodities, ie: food, firearms, non-gmo seeds, manual implement tools, hand tools, etc…. This type of advice is so out-of-character from this guy, and he was so very serious that it really made me listen. He was also very reserved in the sentiment that this may be the last Thanksgiving that our extended-family can spend together for some time. Like I said, this gentleman has been giving our family very sound financial advice for over 30 years, and this is the first time we have seen this type of reaction to current events. Likewise, he thinks we’ll skate through this holiday season but feels things will drastically start to unravel after the first of the year. Again, I’m not trying to reign down with doom and gloom, but I was so taken back with the seriousness and scale of this conversation that I felt I had to share it with Micheal and his readers. May God bless you and all your families this holiday season.

Somehow thinking that everything might be much worse by next Thanksgiving makes me really want to make the most of this precious time with my family.

      The mentality and the spirit of Occupy Wall Street and Black Friday seems to be one of great discontent. Perhaps we should set aside tomorrow, Thanksgiving Day, just to give thanks and practice contentment— a small reprieve in the midst of the chaos and turmoil. God bless us, everyone…

    Just to mention, after reading some of these comments, a matter of certainty. Jesus is not a fable or a santa claus. Jesus is real, He is alive, and He’s on top of everything that’s happening. Give everything you have to Him, and then you’re born again, you will see the Kingdom of God and receive the Holy Spirit. As to what happens next, that depends on a lot of things, but God is no fairy tale, and Jesus is “the way, the truth and the life.”

      The men who created this Jesus thing are the same men who created this whole system of human enslavement through the fraudulent monetary system, the unscientific judicial system and unnatural, materialistic social structure.

People forget that the term “bank holiday” was invented in the 1930’s when the banks were shut for exactly the same reason.’

    No, it was not invented then, and if she genuinely thinks that she is remarkably ignorant of the history of banking for someone who is supposed to be an expert.

    Bank holidays started in the U.K. as a regular part of the calendar, not an emergency arrangement at all, when banks suspended doing business with the public and outside firms so they could bring their own books up to date. This enforced a holiday for everybody else, and gave rise to the name – long before the 1930s. Other countries may well have followed the practice too, but what happened in the U.S.A. in the 1930s was an emergency arrangement that was deceitfully called a bank holiday so as to make people think of the routine, non-emergency arrangement. The whole point was not to invent a new term at all, but to hide behind an old, comfortable one! These days, of course, the U.S.A. only remembers the emergency arrangement, but if Dr. Malmgren really thinks the term was invented then, she isn’t merely ignorant of its origins, she is ignorant that its origins matter – they provided sheep’s clothing for Roosevelt’s wolf.

    Shariah-compliant economy is the way forward. Hope now the Europeans and North-Americans will learn from Islamic economic principles.

    • justamom

      Saajid,

      Which national economies are Sharia-compliant?

      Does Iran have a Shariah-compliant economy?
      I don’t think the citizens of Iran are currently pleased with their job opportunities. There is much social unrest in Iran right now and at least part of it hinges on economic conditions.

    • Glen

      Sharia law is a joke when it is run by psychopaths who can make arbitrary decisions and are not bound by any rule of law. The old USSR had a constitution that sounded like the US constitution. In practice it was just a bunch pof despots ruling over the little people. Does any country with “sharia law” value liberty, personal property and other basic rights? I think not

    “This thing is collapsing. You better get ready for the big crash. It’s coming, and it’s going to wipe out a lot of people. There’s no salvaging this Ponzi scheme.”—Gerald Celente

    No, this Ponzi scheme cannot be salvaged. All the bailouts and all the stimulus in the world cannot save this dysfunctional mess of an economy in The Banana Republic of America (formerly Los Estados Unidos). This is a very sick and diseased economy, and when the depression becomes much worse, it will make the Great Depression of the 1930s look like a picnic at the Jersey Shore. The BRA is not in a recession–it is in a DEPRESSION. And a few years down the line, we could easily be looking at 40% or 50% unemployment. That’s how grave the situation is.

    These are incredibly dark and perilous times in The Banana Republic of America, formerly the USA. Que dios nos ayude.

  • Why satan has cloven hooves

    They’re goat hooves, because we used to throw goats off cliffs as sacrifices and scapegoats, once a year on Yom Kippur, the day of atonement. It essentially amounted to a big, annual party and barbecue–we would have two goats…one to eat and the other to throw off Mount Azazel. The scapegoat carried all the people’s sins down the cliff, and was labeled evil. I’m thinking we used to throw people off the cliffs at one point. Probably a practice way before Christians.

    At any rate, the goat and the human became synonymous, probably as a convenience in art to symbolize an evil person. The great scapegoat.

    Also this fits in nicely with the fact devils are also pictured with wings, as they could have used them when they got pushed off the cliff. You will remember that we have fallen angels, because they fall off the cliffs. get it? haha
    “Fall guy” and “taking the fall” are nice terms for scapegoat, which means fall off the cliff. I’m guessing people were thrown off the cliff whenever they pissed someone off. A devil is just an angel that really pissed someone off so that they have hooves *and* wings. In the end both got murdered though. The wings also were a convenient symbol for people sacrificed and thrown off the cliff.

    Nice story, eh?

    Azazel

    Oh yes, cherubs have wings too. I’m guessing infanticide was a big problem.

    We are reaching the low sweat stage of this crisis. People are starting to figure out what a nightmare we face. Reports are comming in of sales spikes in survival food and gear!

    The principal reason for Dr. Ron Paul’s present political prominence (and why the old, dying, morally and intellectually and fiscally bankrupt “mainstream” media are determined to ignore him out of the public eye in spite of his popular appeal and polling successes) is that when he got into the nomination race in 2007 he flatly and implacably predicted the U.S. financial melt-down that resulted from the government-induced residential real estate bubble which hammered our country in 2008.

    The man looked prescient. He saw it coming, explained it in advance (in spite of all the handwaving and lies of the bureaucrats, the “Boot-On-Your-Neck Party” politicians, the Federal Reserve and Wall Street banksters), and hammered his message home.

    While he’s been continuing to do much the same thing in recent months as he’s made his current run for the Red Faction presidential candidacy, he doesn’t seem to be pounding away at the continuing and worsening financial crisis, especially with the fiat fantasy of the Eurozone – a common medium of exchange in that market which is (and has always been) purest counterfeit – biding inexorably to drag down the Obama-wrecked U.S. private sector in a cataclysm that will make all prior financial panics in history look like a college fraternity picnic taken over by the Occupy Wall Street goons.

    So why the hell isn’t Dr. Paul beating that drum right now?

    With everything we’re seeing in the MSM – in spite of our “Journalistas” desire to disguise and dissemble – it would seem to be a natural appeal to the people of these United States, and a virtual guarantee for Dr. Paul in burying forever our Massachusetts Mamzer, Mitt “the RINO” Romney and every other incompetent whacko in the contest.

    This Christmas time makes a fine time to give each other survival type gear. Among other things my wife is buying me a solar powered cell battery charger with various cell batteries and I am buying her rain barrel for the downspout. I have other things on the list: a Coleman dual fuel stove, some canned food from Augason Farms though Sam’s Club, and General Ecology First Need XL Portable Water Purifier with an extra filter canister. Make this a very practical Christmas.

      one rain barrel will not be enough, but is a great start, i have 10-275 gal elevated tanks off my house and shop. i flush one toilet with 3 of the tanks, and use others for garden water, and even that is not enough. get the sawyer water filter for 46 bucks on line as it filters one million gallons.

    While things are bad right now for many, in the next 12 months thing will be bad for all. The economies of the world will collapse and America’s will be worst in history on many levels. When the Entitlement nation’s creditors ( who themselves are in trouble ) quit lending and the game can no longer be prolonged because it can’t be funded, then that thin veil of civility that Michael alluded to in a previous article will rapidly deteriorate as the people become desperate for even the basics of life. This will be a surreal experience to behold. America’s standard of living has been so ridiculously high and easy credit has made it possible for so many, who otherwise would have been forced to live within their means, to attain a standard of living that they will not be willing to let go of without a fight. Yes, your neighbors will turn on you, in the name of survival as entitlement nation implodes. As the money becomes worth less and then eventually worthless, the government will have to implement austerity measures, medicare, medicaid, food stamps, social security and other programs that many in this nation depend on… gone or severly cut almost immediately. Then you will experience hell on earth as the law of the jungle replaces the law of God. I bet on that day, many of you who thought that God’s laws were a joke, a burden, an obsticle in the path of your self serving, hedonistic lifestyles, you will beg to have a society that lived according to biblical principles. But for now, welcome to entitlement nation, where truth has stumbled in the street. Every knee will bow to Jesus Christ, mine does and will because he is the Son of God… yours will also. For all who trust in Christ already, stand firm to the end, and let no man take your crown.

  • Jane

    Give to ceaser what is his and everything else to God. God is our only hope. Jesus is our salvation. When it all hits the fan, I pray that the rapture will happen and no one who has beleived in Jesus will be here to worry about all this mess the government (saten) has gotten us into. BEEM US UP JESUS, THERE’S NO INTELELLENT LIFE DOWN HERE.

    • Heshua

      Jane: It is clear that you lack a fraction of the intelligence of your direct genetic ancestors. I should know, I was once in your place reading the likes of ‘The Left Behind’ series. I suggest you begin reading anything by Robert M. Price or any one of the Jesus Seminar fellows to gain a historical perspective on Jesus, whose actual name was heshua (yeshua) bar yoseph (or miriam). From there you should move on to some Carl Sagan or Stephen Hawking. Look in to going back to school. You clearly understand nothing about ancient scripture (I doubt you’ve read much as well) and are an insult to anyone who actually devotes their life to such an endeavor. I know it’s difficult to break down your worldview, but living in an alternate reality is only disabling you from truly living in the Here & Now. You will never be beamed (no, it’s not spelled beem) up to an archetype that may or may not have existed, and Satan (no, it’s not spelled Saten) does not exist either, but I’ll let you take the time to look up its orgin. It is people like you that scare me. It is people that side with irrationality and cower in the face of fear, rather than turn to logic, intelligence, and facts to guide their lives. We’re all coming into knowledge at our own pace, albeit some much more slowly than others, and we’re all walking each other home in this cosmic dance. Please do yourself a favor, wake up, open your eyes, you’ve been stuck it the darkness of ignorance with so many others for so long.

    It was around this same time a year ago when I first began to hear such reports of impending economic disaster with shock and disbelief. Yet just about every single prediction has come true, particularly Gerald Calente.

  • Jim Muwanga

    David Icke in the 90’s analysed the casino type world financial system.

    Many did / do not take him seriously.

    But he predicted all this using logic and common sense.

    Read his book ” The truth shall set you free”

    Times up for Free Masons.

    you don’t play with the binary system (zeros and ones 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,111,111.1011,)

    While the world crumbles around us our news is filled with who, Dancing With the Stars last night.
    Our unemployment is so bad the Government has to fudge the figures and the 9% they claim is really more like 16%.
    Our leaders tell us “Don’t Worry – Be Happy” things are turning around and getting better – are they?
    More and more business is going OUT of business. See our web site at: http://worldendsat5newsat11.blogspot.com
    The time to buy gold & silver is past, now it’s time to buy food, weapons, water filters, firewood, cooking fuel, non GMO seeds, survival supplies as time is very very short…

    “there is a lack of leadership in the United States and Europe right now.” Well, this is a perfect time for the final leader to come into power. First, we will need some really hard times so that the people will cry, beg, and demand that he take over. Man, I am hoping that the rapture is true. I do not want to be here for the first 3.5 years.

    As we approach a very bad time in history for the US I would suggest those who doubt how bad things can get look at the moset recent examples of a countries finiancial collapse. Specifically Argintina in 2001 and Iceland 2008. I think that the US will be far worse then Argintina when the collapse occures with widespread vilolence high unemployment, and empty grocery stores. Best advice is to follow the Boy Scouts Motto and be prepared.

    This country is rich. Only a bunch of very clever and evil people have ruined this country. The devil has given you doubt and you belive it. Doubt, despair and revolution is what the devil wants and people like obama,soros, pelosi, reid are of that group. Some look kind and gentle in their old age, sometimes even saintly. No, bush not not get off the hook either, fine nafta globalist he was and is. Nobody hears the good and the wise, they are often softspoken and speak the truth like Michelle Bachman, thinking that virtue will win out, champion players left sitting on the bench for they do not boast and may not be so good at selling themselves or often thinking thay do not have to. That good will prevail. Well its obvious good has not been prevailing lately. We tend to think that those in power are mature and looking for the countries own good. My dear friend how would you like a nice cold cup of cool aid?

    This newsletter reminds me of “the war of the worlds”. I bet this world economies will not come crumbling like pundits have predicted. I am an optimist, and besides, we have experienced worse or similar economic meltdown after the second world war, yet the financial institutions put their acts together and the world’s economy started taking a giant leap. In the face of global innovations and technological advancement, we can only draw a blank to imagine that markets will go down to the dooms.

    I know this is much later than the other posts, but came by this and had to say something.

    First of all…. I was a better atheist than anyone who posted in this lobby. I was well researched, informative and actually scared many “Christians.” You anti-god people in this lobby are WEAK at best. You don’t really put up an argument, but rather continue your pointless bantering that reminds me of a crying child. Which one of you actually brought a verbal fight to the table??? The remarks are more akin to…. “I need attention, please look at me.” Which one of you bared any resemblance of an augment?

    But like I said, I was an atheist… Jesus is lord, undoubtedly. Praise him for loving this loser and coming into my heart. Of course for me it took meta-physical miracles, but he still held the 99 to find the one lost. The ironic part about all of this is that one does not have to look too far in life to witness gods loving miracles.

    For my brothers and sisters, why would you build a city on a hill to hide it, or hide a light under a bowl?

    Do you remember the story of Elijah surrounded by the Army? Daniel in the lion’s den? The three or four people in the furnace? The king is with us, and will not forsake us. He sees his people though their time of trouble. Righteous are his judgments, forgiving his demeanor, and infinite is his patience.

    This collapse is coming and is clearly throughout the bible. So yes prepare…… But more so, chase him will all of your heart.

    Do you remember your first love? Remember chasing that person? Remember the fire that burnt for that person? Do you have the same fire burning for I AM THAT I AM? This is personal I understand. But chase him harder, and NEVER deny him, but rather be that shining light in love we are commanded to be.

    Praise God of Abraham, Enoch, Isiah, Joseph, Noah, Paul
    Future atheist (non-complainers) … Please have a valid argument.

    so what if everything on the planet dumps! Its all tied up w/ banks, banking, and very rich investors across the board and across the planet! DEFAULT ON IT ALL!!! So some rich sobs are going to lose money. Money is nothing more than paper thats not even good enough to use as toilet paper. Everything has now got to be set back to zero 0$ All the infrastructure is still standing, all the soil will still grow crops, the air flows! We need to start over and NOT at some profit point, but at a point that PEOPLE can actually take care of their needs and not rape the planet and each other to do it.
