Are The Government And The Big Banks Quietly Preparing For An Imminent Financial Collapse?

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Something really strange appears to be happening.  All over the globe, governments and big banks are acting as if they are anticipating an imminent financial collapse.  Unfortunately, we are not privy to the quiet conversations that are taking place in corporate boardrooms and in the halls of power in places such as Washington D.C. and London, so all we can do is try to make sense of all the clues that are all around us.  Of course it is completely possible to misinterpret these clues, but sticking our heads in the sand is not going to do any good either.  Last week, it was revealed that the U.S. government has been secretly directing five of the biggest banks in America “to develop plans for staving off collapse” for the last two years.  By itself, that wouldn’t be that big of a deal.  But when you add that piece to the dozens of other clues of imminent financial collapse, a very troubling picture begins to emerge.  Over the past 12 months, hundreds of banking executives have been resigning, corporate insiders have been selling off enormous amounts of stock, and I have been personally told that a significant number of Wall Street bankers have been shopping for “prepper properties” in rural communities this summer.  Meanwhile, there have been reports that the U.S. government has been stockpiling food and ammunition, and Barack Obama has been signing a whole bunch of executive orders that would potentially be implemented in the event of a major meltdown of society.  So what does all of this mean?  It could mean something or it could mean nothing.  What we do know is that a financial collapse is coming at some point.  Over the past 40 years, the total amount of all debt in the United States has grown from about 2 trillion dollars to nearly 55 trillion dollars.  That is a recipe for financial armageddon, and it is inevitable that this gigantic bubble of debt is going to burst at some point.

In normal times, the U.S. government does not tell major banks to “develop plans for staving off collapse”.

But according to a recent Reuters article, that is apparently exactly what has been happening….

U.S. regulators directed five of the country’s biggest banks, including Bank of America Corp and Goldman Sachs Group Inc, to develop plans for staving off collapse if they faced serious problems, emphasizing that the banks could not count on government help.

The two-year-old program, which has been largely secret until now, is in addition to the “living wills” the banks crafted to help regulators dismantle them if they actually do fail. It shows how hard regulators are working to ensure that banks have plans for worst-case scenarios and can act rationally in times of distress.

Does it seem odd to anyone else that only five really big banks got such a warning?

And why keep it secret from the American public?

Does the federal government actually expect such a collapse to happen?

If federal officials do expect a financial collapse to occur, they would not be the only ones.  An increasing number of very respected economists are speaking about the coming financial collapse as if there is a certain inevitability about it.

For example, check out the following quote from a recent Money Morning article….

Richard Duncan, formerly of the World Bank and chief economist at Blackhorse Asset Mgmt., says America’s $16 trillion federal debt has escalated into a “death spiral,” as he told CNBC.

And it could result in a depression so severe that he doesn’t “think our civilization could survive it.”

A former World Bank executive is warning that our civilization might not survive what is coming?

That is pretty chilling.

Economist Nouriel Roubini says that he believes that the coming crisis will be even worse than 2008….

“Worse because like 2008 you will have an economic and financial crisis but unlike 2008, you are running out of policy bullets. In 2008, you could cut rates; do QE1, QE2; you could do fiscal stimulus; you could backstop/ringfence/guarantee banks and everybody else. Today, more QEs are becoming less and less effective because the problems are of solvency not liquidity. Fiscal deficits are already so large and you cannot bail out the banks because 1) there is a political opposition to it; and 2) governments are near-insolvent – they cannot bailout themselves let alone their banks. The problem is that we are running out of policy rabbits to pull out of the hat!”

Across the pond, many European officials are echoing similar sentiments.

What Nigel Farage told King World News the other day is very ominous….

Today MEP (Member European Parliament) Nigel Farage spoke with King World News about what he described as the possibility of, “a really dramatic banking collapse.”  Farage also warned that central planners want to enslave and imprison people inside of a ‘New Order,’ and he described the situation as “horrifying.”

The situation in Europe continues to get worse and worse.  The authorities in Europe have come out with “solution” after “solution”, and yet unemployment continues to skyrocket and economic conditions in the EU have deteriorated very steadily over the past 12 months.

If all of that was not bad enough, there are an increasing number of indications that Germany is actually considering leaving the euro.

Needless to say, that would be a complete and total disaster for the rest of the eurozone.

Of course there are any number of ways that the financial crisis in Europe could potentially play out.

But all of the realistic scenarios would be very bad for the global economy.

Meanwhile, our resources are dwindling, war in the Middle East could erupt at any moment and our planet is becoming increasingly unstable.  The following is from a recent article by Paul B. Farrell on….

Fasten your seat belts, soon we’ll all be shocked out of denial. Some unpredictable black swan. A global wake-up call will trigger the Pentagon’s prediction in Fortune a decade ago at the launch of the Iraq War: “By 2020 … an ancient pattern of desperate, all-out wars over food, water, and energy supplies is emerging … warfare defining human life.”

It is almost as if a “perfect storm” is brewing.

Of course the historic drought that is ravaging food production in the United States this summer is not helping matters either.  Another summer or two like this one and we could be looking at a return of Dust Bowl conditions.

Anyone that is watching what is going on in the world and is not concerned at all about what is happening is simply being delusional.

Recently, a “team of scientists, economists, and geopolitical analysts” examined the current state of the global economic system and the conclusions they reached were absolutely staggering….

One member of this team, Chris Martenson, a pathologist and former VP of a Fortune 300 company, explains their findings:

“We found an identical pattern in our debt, total credit market, and money supply that guarantees they’re going to fail. This pattern is nearly the same as in any pyramid scheme, one that escalates exponentially fast before it collapses. Governments around the globe are chiefly responsible.

“And what’s really disturbing about these findings is that the pattern isn’t limited to our economy. We found the same catastrophic pattern in our energy, food, and water systems as well.”

According to Martenson: “These systems could all implode at the same time. Food, water, energy, money. Everything.”

Hmmmm – it sounds like they have been reading The Economic Collapse Blog.

The truth is that a massive worldwide financial collapse is coming.

It is inevitable, and it is going to be extremely painful.

So what do you think about all of this?  Please feel free to post a comment with your thoughts below….

  • Rodster

    I’ve said many times this collapse is being done on purpose. You don’t fix massive debt with more massive debt. ObummerCare just piles on, they encourage millions to join the food stamp list while we have over 100 million on welfare.

    Mathematics says you go broke. Yeah TPTB have plans for the rest of us and it’s not a good thing. 😉

    • Nice bait and switch, you corporatist whore.

      • Rodster


        Except i’m self employed, was in the poverty bracket last and never took a dime from the federal or state government. So yeah I guess everyone is a corporate whore. 😉

    • Martin

      There are no plans to cause crash.
      Collapse of system based on exponential growth is a mathematical certainty.
      What you observe is a product of utter impotence, not any sort of deliberate crashing plan.

      All what TPTB are trying to do is to secure their place between aristocracy of the future.
      They are busy to preserve their wealth.
      You should be busy with that as well.

      Otherwise, instead of being low rank nobility or someone who can still exercise his freedom, you will become a serf… bondsman… slave, very much like ~80% of all will.

      So no, there are no plans of global government etc.
      It is flat IMPOSSIBLE to build global empire in the era of general collapse.
      TPTB are probably very pissed with that as a nice plan to do so is now in flames.
      History teaches us that collapse brings fragmentation as time pass.

    • RainbowWorms

      Actually yes, debt was the solution, how?
      Neo-colonialism, even after WW2 west already had economic domination ongoing, with the cold war the move was to dominate the rest politically, hence the cold war because, for a time, the soviet-union governement wished to remain sovereign.
      It was no more direct domination, just through corrupt local governements like south vietnam and egypt. Sometimes, there would be direct domination but only long enough to establish compliant governements (vietnam and iraq wars comes to mind). Neo-liberalism went one step further than the old system, instead of the US or UK producing and selling things to Mexico or Pakistan, it would be Mexico and Pakistan making things and selling them at discount prices.
      First world would force this collection of weakling regimes, completely unable to forme any sort of collective front on their own, to keep on “lending” to it.
      Evidently, no meaningfull percentage of the “investement” or “loan” was meant to ever come back.

      Thought, the rate of loans had to increase, even after deindustrialization was mostly done.
      Eventually, there is no country or collection of countries those economies are strong enough to subsize the powers-that-be.
      Eventually, the maquiladoras wheren´t enough, Japan surrendering its exchange rate to US interests wasn´t enough, the rise of China is rapidly becoming not enough right now.
      The thing is, after China, there is no other, even bigger cashcow. India compares in terms of population but its society remaines vastly inferior despite all the hype, unsustainable population density and is rapidly running out of water.

      So the North american regime (Canadian “independence” is a joke) plan is simple, seize power.
      But the neo-liberal system is not self-sustainable anymore, haven´t been in 40 years, when the wreckers and parasites are given full power, it is going to be even worst.

    • Jodi

      Yep, that’s the reason why they are quite. It’s so aggravating, I try to warn my family and friends and all I get are funny looks like I’m out of my mind. God help us all!

      • DownWithLibs

        Keep at it Jodi. Show them hard facts (as it is getting harder for anyone to hide them anymore). They will see.

    • cellan j

      you do know wallmart employee’s are on food stamps etc because they don’t earn that much money, how about moaning about that to go with blaming obama for everything. typical republican just blame it on the guy in office

      • Rodster

        It’s Bush’s fault ! Oh wait that’s the DemoCRAPS tagline. 😆

      • Mal R.

        Your statement has all the net worth of a democrat. Fill in the blank with any company name or govt entity and it’s 100% as valid as what you’ve said.

        Do you know that _______ employees are on food stamps because they dont earn that much money.

        So tell us exactly how much Mr Stock Boy or Miss Cashier are worth with job qualification of HS diploma, if that. 75 thousand? 100 thousand?

        What happens to the price of Walmart’s good when they have to pay just above idiot employees 75K-100K each? Do you then start whining about the high cost of their goods and how they are ‘the rich stealing from the poor’?

        Perhaps that walmart employee is on food stamps because of his own choices. Typical democrat redistribute the weath class envy and jealousy. Blame someone that busted their a$$ to get where they are for your failure. Oh wait. Nvr mind, the Obamster built that.

        • Sunshine

          They’re worth a LIVING WAGE. Can you live on part time min walmart wages? Is Walmart on the verge of bankruptcy or something because of labor costs? What, they can’t afford to pay the people who labor for the company enough to live on?
          Minimum wage was intended to be the bare minimum an employer could pay! AND EVEN When the law went into effect min wage was not enough then!
          Enforce living wages particular to an area and the whole system readjusts for the greater good! If that can’t be done then Wallyworld needs to be taxed to pay for the poverty they create!
          Wake up! What’s a gallon of gas cost and a loaf of bread?

      • DownWithLibs

        REALLY LIBERAL!!! Careful, your hypocrisy is showing.

    • dirtyoldrockhound

      It appears you are very incorrect. It’s not the poor draining the system, it’s the rich. You’ve been compromised by Faux News. Just ONE FAMILY in the United States owns half our wealth, HOW IS THAT OK? That is not how it works. REAL economies are driven by people who buy things, DURABLE. Things, not financial products. The middle class loves to spend money, but right now they are being choked out. Give someone in the middle class 10k and most likey they will run right out and spend it. Give a million or billionaire 10 and watch em wipe their ass with it the use it to buy a congressmen.

      • Rodster

        Looks like you’ve been comprised by Debbie Wasserman Schultz. I don’t get Faux News, don’t want it. The banks are part of the problem but the bigger problem is the government creating an unsustainable nanny state.

      • Mal R.

        “Just ONE FAMILY in the United States owns half our wealth, HOW IS THAT OK? That is not how it works.”

        No, ONE family doesn’t own half ‘our’ wealth. Liberal lie. How does someone else ‘own our wealth’? If they own something, it’s THEIRS by definition – Not yours.

  • r.bitting

    Yes, there is a perfect storm coming, and it has the divine hand of God guiding it. God is not mocked, that which a nation sows, the same shall it reap. These politicians will not be able to save you, your money, your prepping, your guns, your gold, nor your getaway plan will not be able to save you. If God is behind it ( and He is ), only a fool would believe he could escape from the hand of God. Would’nt it be wiser to accept this for what it is ( devine judgment ), and instead of running from God, run to God, with a humble and repentant heart. Acknowledging your sinfulness to Him, and asking His forgiveness, Because God is rich in mercy, and desires that all His children turn to him and be saved. Trust in Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross as atonement for your sin, which He did, so that the righteous requirement of God’s law would be satisfied, because God id perfectly righteous and must punish sin. Thats the whole point of the cross, Jesus Christ takes your punishment, and imputes to you His righteousness, so that you stand before God forgiven and completely justified in His sight. What a Trade! What a merciful God! What a Savior we have in Jesus Christ. I would’nt trade my standing and my relationship with Jesus Christ for anything this world offers. May God bless you with the same promise, it’s up to you!

    • Mick68

      God Himself says “When you see the desolation that causes destruction….RUN!!!”

      Lots of believers here who are prepared all the same. Are you expecting God to divinely(notice it’s spelled with an I, not an E)pull you from the chaos?

      Jesus told us how we could recognize the signs of the times. Why would He do that if it didn’t matter and we could expect God to put a divine shield on us?

      • r.bitting

        Yes Mic68, I did mispell divine, but if you’ll notice in the first sentence it is correct. I don’t have a problem with folks preparing, rather that they think it will in and of itself save them. The point was to point them to the only true hope, Jesus Christ.

    • PitBull Pappa

      You ALWAYS write the same thing in the comments of every article. I respect anyones religious belief, but you nausiate me with this same repetative garbage. Why don’t you try writing something logical & informative for once.

      “These politicians will not be able to save you, your money, your prepping, your guns, your gold, nor your getaway plan will not be able to save you. If God is behind it ( and He is ), only a fool would believe he could escape from the hand of God”

      So according to you, everyone should just lie down, ask for foregivenss and wait to die and go to heaven without even bothering to prepare? You go ahead and do that… meanwhile those of us who use the brain that god gave us will be prepping for whats to come.

      And for your information, God isn’t causing the financial collapse genius… it’s a man made event.

      • r.bitting

        Pit bull Pappa, try reading the Old Testament prophets, try reading deuteronomy Ch. 28, try reading Romans Ch. 1. God corrects nations throughout the entire Old Testament by bringing upon them both economic and natural diasters, as well as enemies so that they might return to Him. Do you really need me to give you the references ( Maybe you can start in the Book of Amos ).

      Unfortunately the word of God as quoted by various neo-con Christian and Jewish leaders has been used to justify aggressive wars against rival theocracies. Jesus has been invoked to recruit the sheeple in what is ultimately a self annhilating foreign policy.

      • Mal R.

        “various neo-con Christian and Jewish leaders ”

        Well, no reason to read past that. I smell another leftist anti-semite.

    • robert

      These things are happening because Jesus authorized it. The Bible says that God gave Jesus all power in heaven and on earth; therefore, everything that happens on earth is Jesus’s policy. You should not send people running to God. He is busy with other things. That is why He gave Jesus all the power.

    • joe oberr

      Good post. Side note: When you mention you stand before God forgiven I presume you imply that one has repented in order to meet that condition of forgiveness. “Repent and believe in the Kingdom of God.” Unless one repents and asks for forgiveness God cannot forgive our sins as he respects our free will and does not force Himself on us. If we enjoy our sins and don’t want to quit sinning we are stuck as a slave to sin & Jesus’ sacrifice is in vain.

    • WTF

      Believe in fairy tales, cause that’s exactly what you do! There is no GOD, talk about delusional. It’s save your own ass in way you can cause there is nobody or anything that’s going to do it for you!

    • Barn cat

      We need to prepare for the coming collapse and we need to prepare for eternity too. We’re on the edge of the Great Tribulation as spoken of in the Bible. I’m convinced that the collapse comes before the Rapture but we will have the Rapture before the coming of the antichrist. No matter what happens to us on earth those of us who are saved will still be taken safely to Heaven. I can’t wait to go. My first wife and our two stillborn children are waiting for me!

      • r.bitting

        joe oberr, you presume correctly, because if they don’t first repent, then they have a false grace.

        • Bryan

          r bitting you speak such sweet words i just pray that the spirit works on the hearts of those who read and listen. your first post was an absolute piece of Gold! Godbless you for what you do!

          Robert: if we don’t run to God what else is there to run 2? all else is empty and the wide road where Jesus said to take the narrow path..for on that path you have life..through him! 🙂 God is busy drawing people to HIM! THE I AM! Godbless you!

      To r.bitting

      Hello you Saint in the Lord –
      It is not of him who wills or of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy. From the book of Romans 9:16.

      No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day.
      John 6:44

      Saint – You seem hinge the application of God’s salvation in Christ entirely to man’s decision, ….whenever he or she wants it, placing God on hold until one says’ ok, save me God.
      There is no urgency in that.. if it’s man naked choice, whenever he gets around to it.
      The approach is then altogether a man centered gospel,… a different gospel.

      God’s love and saving grace is not provided in a promiscuous manner or a with flirtatious invitation. He is not our peer or equal to us. It’s just upsurd for a toilet to ask the potter, why did you make me this way? (Romans 9:20)

      We can’t ‘will’ ourselves to be born again, much less exercise true repentance.

      Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard its spots? Neither can you do good who are accustomed to doing evil.
      Jeremiah 13:23

      Neither keeping the torah or practicing it makes us justified or saved in His sight, like many of the Jewish people think.
      Jesus Christ is God incarnate, as a Jewish man and henceforth, forever will be so,… He is the centraility and universality of God’s economy. He took the hit on the cross, his life he gave up to save the elect from their sins and to make them new creatures – to them only.

      Preach the gospel – good… But, it is entirely God’s doing as to it’s application.
      Salvation, from beginning to full completion, is all of God and His doing – none of ours. Dig deeper and you will find unspeakle security and peace in these passages – all of which glorifies Him.
      Only for the elect…, Revelation 7:9

      The real question all of us should be concerned with is, am I one of the elect? Let’s not deceive ourselves any longer.


      Pray that your flight not be in Winter. Matthew 24:20
      God prepared a salvation for the elect before the foundation of the world. Ephesians 1:4

      You should portray Him that way,.. by preparing for God’s judgement.
      It would be more accurate to do that, than proclaiming a man centered, gospel message.

      I encourage you to study, ask for wisdom to understand this concept of God’s soverignty in salvation.
      Jacob I loved, Esau I hated. From the book of Romans again, 9:13

      All of mankind does not equal God’s children in a sense that we are born again. God’s children are the chosen ones.
      1 John 3:1 We love Him because He first loved us.

      And the verse you quote about God not wanting any to perish is talking about the elect. 2 Peter 3:9
      (Read the opening verses to Peter’s epistle).

      Once you understand more about the gap between God and his work and us as mere creatures, you’ll have a better understanding of the mercy of God.
      Many are called, few are chosen.(Matthew 22:14)

      …work out your own salvation with fear and trembling., For it is God who works in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.
      From Philippians 2


      • r.bitting

        GSOB, I am fully aware that salvation is of the Lord, and what I presented was not a man centered gospel but rather simply a presenting of the gospel which the Holy Spirit can use to call those who were chosen from the foundation of the world. In order to recieve the Gospel doesn’t one first have to have it presented to them? It’s God who works within the heart of a person to call them onto salvation, but God uses the witness of other believers as evidenced in the book of Acts, to call one unto saving faith. I can appreciate your commitment to the truth, but rest assured, i’m not presenting a man centered Gospel, just the Gospel, and then let God do with it what He wills.

        • GSOB

          ok r.bitting
          gotcha brother…

  • What could I tell you without exposing my plans and preps? But i will say this much the government does not give a rat’s ass about you and i we are on our own. If people have not figured this out by now well what could anybody say? The federal government also looks at society as to stupid and to weak
    to handle this kind of a situation. And my question is this the government has been prepping a long time to make sure they are well protected but at the same time tell everybody else there is no need to do so? what will it take to make people understand that they have been abandoned by this government. what could you tell me that would make me see it differently?
    p.s we will survive! one way or another simply because we are americans!

    What is amazing is that this is the perfect stage for the emergence of a New World Order, One world Government and the coming world leader the Bible talks about. I always wondered what it would take to force us into such a situation but now I see the coming world economic implosion is exactly what is needed. We are headed for very difficult times and large majorities of people have no clue what is coming. In my work place, 90 percent of the people don’t even watch basic news much less anything on this level. I am thankful for your post and look forward to reading each one. May God Bless you for sounding the alarm.

      ” and the coming world leader the Bible talks about”.

      OOf, I hate to speculate about the end of the world, especially since the Bible says no man will know the time. In reality, I wouldn’t even call it ‘speculation’ to say we are headed into WWIII that will prolly kill a cool billion or two.

      AMEN Charles! Thanks for speaking the truth while we still can. 🙂 well, at least without extreme danger to our lives, but then God is over that too. I am not afraid but I just think that so many people will not know what even happened or why. Thank God for blogs like this one!!

  • 314edpiper

    What bothers me the most is I know too many people with blind faith in the US government and refuse to believe any of this could happen. My response to them is it is happening, just open your eyes. My wife and children are working poor and I honestly think we are in a better position to survive the upcoming civil unrest than many of the ‘well-off’ people I know. We may not have a lot of dollars and cents, but we do have tone of common sense. We have food, frozen and stable. We have resources for power. We have resources for protection. We have some saved silver and precious metals, but most of all, we have a strong sense of skepticism about the governments ideas of ‘hope and change’. You know the old saying, “Hope in one hand and poop in the other and see which one fills up first”.

    We won’t have hands full of poop when the poop hits the fan.

    “and Barack Obama has been signing a whole bunch of executive orders that would potentially be implemented in the event of a major meltdown of society”

    You guys are worse than the birthers. President Obama is the most caring, compassionate and altruistic president in our nation’s history. Oh, and I have full unyielding faith in the US Dollar. Talk of a currency collapse is rubbish spewn by the right wing Ron Paul followers of this world. (Obama 2012!!)

    • Dangerfield

      Good luck with that clueless worship of the Obidiot. How did you find time away from your Obidiot altar to type that much. I know I can’t fight stupid with facts so again good luck with your delusional thought processes. You and your ilk are the perfect example of why I am wanting the collapse to come as soon as possible. The collapse hits, no prob for me and mine. For you…. LMAO…. Stupidity will become extinct in short order with the collapse. (Obama 2012!!!! truley. He will bring the collapse even quicker.) BTW, assuming you can read… have you read any of his executive orders? They are very easy to find on the web. What? you haven’t? You remind me of many of the jewsih people during Hitler’s rise to power. Well…. cannon fodder is always useful.

    • If this is not delusional – then I don’t know what is! I’ll admit that Bush should have NEVER grown the national debt but Obama is making the problem much,much worse!! Keep in mind what this man said the night he was elected President in Nov. 2008: “Tonight we will begin the fundamental transformation of American society”. In case your didn’t know it socialism doesn’t work – the old Soviet Union went bankrupt & we ARE headed in the same direction!

    • A.S.

      If he is so caring, why keep of the wars in Ira

    • A.S.

      If he is so caring, why keep up all the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? Why murder innocent people? Why all the other wars in Libya, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and the the two new ones in Syria and Iran? Why did he sign the NDAA, which is way worse than the Patriot Act. Stop listening to the corporate media.

      And yes, the EOs that he signed could potentially give him more power than any king of the world ever had. Given his communist background, who will be his first victims? Christians? Jews? All rich whites who did not give money to his election?

            and Bush got us into Iraq

            and you’re stupid enough to think Obama is hard left??? he’s a tool of the elites, just like Bush

        • A.S.

          Where is your proof that Israel ordered those wars? Ah, yes, from the corporate media you claim that you do not watch. I bet there is not one single legitimate alternative media source to show this. Give me links that show documents, not just hearsay. Otherwise, your comments will be deemed as anti-semitic as they have always been seem by me. And when Obama will become dictator of the U.S. under FEMA when Martial Law gets enacted, I suppose you will blame Israel too? If so, you will for sure be deemed as a Nazi, who hates ALL Jews just for being Jews.

          • Gay Veteran

            oh, so the prime minister of Israel isn’t LUSTING for war against Iran

  • Mick68

    I always assume there is no crash coming if the media tells me there’s a crash coming. The fact that this was leaked is a contrarian sign, not that I think things are fine by any means.
    The FED and govt probably believe they can prop the economy up with fiat cash for a decade, but the economy isn’t the only threat, there are so many more, and one of them will be the trigger.

    Economic collapse has been happening since the mid 1970’s. And It will continue to happen. Americans will continue to have to downsize. We have an unsustainable lifestyle of fuel,food and resource consumption.Tack on 55 trillion in total debt and the skyrocketing price of healthcare…the future is bleak. Go google the streets of Mexico and this is america’s future.

  • stevefraser

    It’s called the fourth turning by the book of the same name…the author’s suggest a number of triggering events, not all economic….And the authors stress not only will catastrophic events move at lightning speed, things will come to pass that only a year or two before we unthinkable…Their best guess is the roof will fall in around 2020, give or take a couple of years.

    • Bone idle

      You are hinting at the expected “Black Swan” event.
      The reality is that any BlackSwan will bring the worlds economy down now. And in fact it’s “lucky” that a black swan hasn’t already occurred. An example – Fukashima could go critical.
      The event spring is set – all it needs is a trigger. As Michael keeps hinting the condition for downfall already exists and has existed since 2007.

      2020- Is that when people start seeing clearly?

    • sharonsj

      I have that book and I suggest people go to the library and read it. Most of what those guys predicted has happened. Governments around the world have been both corrupted and duped by the the military/industrial/financial industries. The result is the rise of the super-rich while everyone else falls into poverty.

      Of course the solution is to nationalize our own resources and production, so that the benefits go to all the people and not just a few. But the capitalists would never stand for it–they claim we need a free market, but we don’t have a free market, it’s all rigged.

      • Mal R.

  • Saving My Granchildren

    A year and a half ago I went into high gear preparing for collapse. To my surprise, my financial adviser, his brother and his father had all bought properties and were doing the same thing. My adviser says I am the most prepared of his clients. For pity’s sake, where is everyone’s brain?!

    • callmecordelia1

      I went to a store last week to buy a wood-burning stove. The sales associate asked what I was looking for. I told him what I wanted, and he said “Right this way!” I followed him up to a showroom full of wood stoves. He said he’s been in the business for 30 years and has sold more free-standing wood stoves in the past year than he had in the previous 29 years combined. He said “I don’t know what’s going on, but there’s a rush on these things! If you would have told me 5 years ago that I’d have a showroom full of wood stoves, I would have told you you’re crazy!” I think there are more people prepping than we think. Still not enough, but people are getting anxious. Just thought that was an interesting tidbit.

      • Michael

        Yes, that is a very interesting tidbit of information.

        A lot of people out there are quietly preparing and it has shifted to another level recently.

        I love to get personal firsthand reports like this.



    • cellan j

      so buying a property is going to keep you safe if the government collapses, i figured guns would make more sense. property value with crash because house prices will dive with nobody being able to buy 1 or wanting to when they can just roll up with a few guns and take it from you

  • markthetruth

    You are correct because we are increasing destroying every last thing on earth in order to achieve so called growth, and in a wasteful way that that all resources will are becoming extinct. just look at what what we are doing…

    1. we produce more waste then the environment can handle.

    2. we are polluted everything (air,water,soil ) which effects are food and health.

    3. we kill sharks just for the fins and throw it back.

    4. we kill elephants just for their tusks .

    5. we are pushing fish oil for triglycerides, where do we get all this fish oil???

    6. we sell water in polluted plastic and drink it and throw half the bottles in the water and land, just because our tap water has more junk in it.

    7. we kill natural insects with “chemicals” and spray are food with them and destroy nature needed such as bees for pollination.

    8. we made “drugs” the most expensive commodity…

    9. we now polluted space.

    10. we have created a world where everything is based on speed that it’s killing us…

    11. we created technology such as the TV that has become a tool for brainwashing.

    12. we become so evil we create weapons of mass destruction…

    13. we create so called green or clean energy such as nuclear but in reality we create dangerous waste we can get rid of or if the plant has issues it kills people.

    14. we create so much waste we have to have garbage trucks pick it up.

    15. to survive we have to destroy.

    in the end in order to continue, we will have take the inside of the earth and put it on the surface as we are doing until it become hollow….

    the end.

    So the banksters and their whore politicians think they are gonna start some mayhem and chaos and sneak off to their bunkers while everyday people suffer. They better keep dreamin’ if they think they will be immune from the madness.

  • Laughing at Libs

    I offer a perspective. You can agree or disagree. I posit that we should encourage the government to facilitate the collapse. During extermely difficult times, history has shown, conservative values emerge. Prog/lib values die very quickly. Common sense and personal responsibility emerge. In times of luxury and excess, lib/prog thinking emerges from the morally corrupt society that has devreloped from the excesses. So to eliminate the prog/lib mindset we need the collapse. Education, facts, logic and reason do not work on libs/progs. So… the collapse will. I also am a full proponent of gun control. Gun control should take the form of a simple question. If you are a lib/prog you are not allowed to own a gun. That is my version of gun control with the future being as the intelligent and observant see it shaping up to be.

    “hundreds of banking executives have been resigning”

    With major bonuses? The bigger they are paid, the hardest they failed.

  • chiller

    The guberment telling the banks to prepare to stave off a collapse is like Bonnie telling Clyde to prepare to not be arrested. Once it begins to unravel, you’ll hear the cowardly politicians and cowardly bankers pointing fingers at each other trying to save their cowardly hides. That’s why it’s important to know who these people are when you see them so we can bring them to the peoples court (not the tv kind). Having a Deck of Dirty Deeds is a good place to start.

  • Jim

    Most people live in a state of Normalcy Bias they also don’t want to hear anything bad.I stopped talking about it a couple years ago and only communicate with people of like mind. The collapse is here at some point it will accelerate or an event could cause a complete meltdown and will go past the point of no return.I truly feel sorry for people,they will be waiting around for help and help won’t be there.The advantage the preppers have is we see what’s going on well the Ark is about to close up.Wish everyone all the best in riding out this storm.

    I love this site and visit multiple times a day. It is good to feel like I am in a community of like minded individuals, because the majority of the people I talk too think I am just a paranoid nut. I really had my eyes opened in 2008, but a part of me really wanted to hang on to everything I know, not wanting to acknowledge what I was reading and hearing daily. I fully accepted it in late 2011 and began making preparations. I have begun gardening this year, have been preparing spiritually by finally deciding that my family and I need to become part of a church family and other preps as I can afford them. I really fear I have started to late, but at least I am awake.

    Thanks again for this site and all of your other sites as well!

    • Michael


      Thank you for the kind words. And I am so thankful for the community that has developed around this site. So many amazing comments get posted by so many wonderful people. I know that I learn a ton just reading all the comments that people post.

  • CornontheCob

    Or, how to do marketing for the $400 million online prepper provisions industry. Yeah there will be a crash, but the PTBs don’t want things to get completely out of control – just scary enough for people to accept a new economic and political dispensation. You won’t need to trim much more fat off the American middle class to get there. They’re already primed for fear.

    I think the collapse is coming sooner than we expect, and although we all used to think it would be in stages. it’s lookingmore and more like a single event.

  • jim

    Keep electing real estate agents (car salesmen) to political office and this is what you get.

    No statesmen for years; local or federal.

  • We continue to hear, year after year, about the big collapse. I’ve got my canned food & bottled water, but still the collapse hasn’t come yet. On a personal note, I think the collapse will come, but in increments & not like the Crash of ’29 all in one day.

  • Sherlock

    A Middle East war between Israel and Iran which drags in the US, NATO, China and Russia and that severely damages oil infrastructure could be the trigger. Oil prices above US$150 and transport costs spiraling out of control would be the immediate effects.

    • Skippy

      There would be no “which drags in the US” about it, the US are involved fully in the instigation/organisation of the invasion of Iran. Amazing how short memories can be, no-one seems to remember the call to arms because of WMD’s, and yet another lie that turned out to be. Here we go again.

      I work at a military base on the east coast (in Hampton Roads, VA which is just chuck full of military bases) and have neither seen nor heard anything that would indicate “The military is evacuating military bases on the coasts.”

      So, I’m curious…. just where are you getting your information from and what military bases are you talking about?

  • There is an inaccuracy in many people’s belief. “The government does not care about you at all.” It is much, much, worse: The government and their slave masters do care that all the people (except a very small number of specialist technicians and servant-slaves with the purpose of keeping them in high luxury) should suffer, starve and die in massive numbers -they hope up to 95 percent would die, and the remainders would become complete slaves, with implanted chips to remotely control their thoughts, emotions, and finances. The chips would also serve to administrate suffering, madness and even death to the rebellious or disposable ones.

    However their plans will NOT work out. At all.

  • SS

    Well – I have been seeing this for the last few years in my travels around the globe – the slide started at the “war on terror” and how unecessary the wars manufactured by the US were and how the US could ill afford them – financially – hold onto your ares ‘s Iran is next but probably with drones but it will be expensive – don’t get me wrong I have lived in the US for a long time and have an American wife and actually like theYanks but consecutive administrations have ruined the middle class and hence the American Dream and thats why we left as it is obvious that you guys are in the last days of Rome – sorry to be so blunt , and that life there for the average person is about to get nasty ….

    The world is filled with greed, corruption and evil and unfortunately, “we all” allowed it to take a foothold in our societies all across the world. We voted them in, allowed them to get into power positions all across the globe. I believe we lived our lives, ignored the absurdity, greed and corruption all around us for selfish reasons. Past generations would call out the absurd and those constructing it would be shamed into submission….. not anymore…. those who call this out are now ridiculed, marginalized and beaten back by names of racist, bigot, etc. The world is upside down from when I grew up and now we have Michael and many others calling out what he sees occurring and still far too many simply not paying attention.

  • During times when immense numbers of people lose wealth, others soak it up. The Crime of ’73 (1873) forbidding silver to be used in payments larger than $5, shoved a huge swath of the middle class into poverty; it caused numberless suicides; groups of starving men up to 10,000 in number formed and were opposed by cannons. It had far ranging effects all the way to China, where trade stopped and starvation was rampant. Vast tracts of land were acquired by the “robber barons” due to people’s silver money being attacked. These interests united just after the end of the 19th century with the financiers of the global British Empire to form “The Pilgrims Society,” described in the Review of Reviews, May 1902, pp557-558 as “a secret society gradually absorbing the wealth of the world.” This is the ONLY globalist group we can’t get membership lists for, and no list has leaked since 1980. We do know that Volcker is Obama’s top economic adviser; that he took 59 million silver ounces from the Hunts; and that he is a vice president of The Pilgrims Society; additionally we know our President is always an “honorary” member, and he can sign executive order stealing gold and silver from the public, and already did so in 1933-1934. This single organization is the source of close to 100% of USA financial troubles and it aims to return us to feudalistic society under the British Crown, as it is sponsored by the Royal Family, the world’s largest land owners.

  • Well said!

    It’s a shame the energy of the work arounds isn’t harnessed to heal our society. We have a plan, it’s called the Constitution. It just seems America lacks a strong people of God with a vigorous civic spirit who are willing to sacrefice for their children like the Patriots of our past.

    Inevitable. The big money behind the government of the past 12 years here in the US has been a major chop to the economy. The conservatives blame the liberals, the liberals blame the conservatives. No one wants to admit that they are all one and the same. The government is bought and paid for by the corporations who are moving their workforce to wherever they can get the work done for slave rate wages. The governments keep bailing out the banks and corporations with our money and those same bank and corporate CEOs give themselves and their minions record bonuses for their rewards. The majority of the people are too brainwashed by what they hear from mainstream media and the reality shows that keep them entertained to see the true reality show that they are characters in.

      You have missunderstood why we are prepping. So that we can build back what the corruption of our people and government have destroyed. We are prepping so we can survive and even florish during the attempted take over and enslavement of the people by the government during collapse. Quitters I think not we are the patriots that will bust you out of the FEMA camps and teach you to live again without sucking the government tit. Sure some are prepping just for themselves to hell with everyone else, but many of us are doing much more. All we can do is vote for a president that will do nothing. We can complain and we are laughed at because we believe what the country calls the fairy tales in Gods word. We are 10s of millions of people. We are the largest army in the world. We do not want this collapse, we dread what is coming. (You have a few crazies on here that think the sooner the better) That is only because they have no idea what they are wishing for X generation would be my guess. I am not prepared for 1 or 2 years I am prepared for the rest of my life all my children, grand children and even my neighbors most of them don’t know that. When they come and ask we will help those who will help us. Entitlements will end. Everyone will earn their keep or starve. That sounds harsh to liberals, but you would be surprised how many would work if we didn’t give them everything. My little farm will not be a democracy, I will be a dictator my way or the highway. I would never ask of anybody what I would not do. Oh and one more thing I think you would find out the kind of men most of us are if you called us a quitter and loser to our face.

      Along with your person, your opinion is nothing of consequence.

      You know nothing of Preppers. One of the highest items on a preppers list is TYPICALLY – find others of like mind and attitude. Be ready to help others. You must form a community because no one makes it alone. The absolute largest band of preppers (Which is a ridiculously poor name for them) is Glenn Beck’s 9-12 project. Not one iota of the 9-12 project’s creed is to go it alone.

    Ok, this is getting a bit too “doom&gloom” for me. Call me naive, but this all seems a bit “hearsay” for me and you’re scaring the crap out of me…

      How many links to outside sources do you need exactly (and Mike ALWAYS has NUMEROUS sources) to overcome the threshold of hearsay? Dont be afraid. BE PREPARED. Save some cash and food and find some friends that have the same concerns.

      Don’t worry. It’ll get a whole lot more substantial once you’re pulled out of your house and tossed while looking like the Monopoly guy with the pockets turned out on the Pay Poor Tax of $15 card shortly before being dragged off to debtor’s prison by the scruff of the neck like on the Go To Jail Card.

    I believe we all need to become preppers because it is the best way to live. All of our grandparent or great grandparents were preppers. They all saved for the rainy day. They canned and preserved extra because they might have a bad growing season. We have become so dependant on fast or prepackaged food we are totally helpless without it. We should be more focused on our family, our God and our future. We have become a country of need need need now now now. I know a bunch of people that buy breakfast on the way to work and dinner on the way home. They couldn’t live a few days with what they have at home. That would scare the heck out of me. I think we preppers are eating fresh veggies out of our gardens, fresh eggs from our chickens, fresh milk from our cows. Fresh meat from our animals. We have learned to grow our own vegetables, raise our own meat, bake bread, preserve food by canning or smoking. Make cheese, butter and 1000 other things. To me this is the life. We still buy from the grocery store, but less and less. See this is our chosen way of life from now on, I don’t care if the economy collapses or not. This is a better way of life. May God bless you all.

    And it is coming very soon along with many other things there will not be just one thing but many at once the elite know a collapse is coming they are the ones whom engineered the coming collapse but it will play right into the famine and huge earth changes everyone will be hit with many things at once in sept we are suppose to have a huge earthquake along the east coast that will effect the gulf of Mexico and the new Madrid fault with huge tusamines which will put the one Japan had to shame why do you thing they have all this ammo that the homeland security ordered and tanks marked homeland security and the military on standby they will roll out and and keep order the best they can banks will close no power so will grocery stores and such they have billions of meals ready to eat and camps tp put displaced people remember September!!!!!

    • Orange Jean

      So Karen, just curious but where ever did you get information that

      “…in sept we are suppose to have a huge earthquake along the east coast that will effect the gulf of Mexico and the new Madrid fault with huge tusamines”? (that would be tsunami’s I assume?)

      I studied natural hazards (and earthquakes in particular) in grad school, at a university that is very well respected in the field of geology (University of Mass-Amherst, in what was Dept of Geology & Geography, renamed now Dept of Geosciences)… and I never saw any literature that would indicate anyone has the ability to accurately predict earthquakes (tho there are a FEW near real time “precursors”). I had to do an extensive literature review on the topic too. Could you cite your source(s)?

    • LordRhynn

      There’s a problem with that plan.

      Men in tanks with guns are no more the masters of nature than men without either.

      It is the arrogance and eternal failing of man to recognize this that will have the people pulling this lying dead on the plot right next to those they’ve pulled this on.

      Mega-tsunamis don’t follow social pecking order. They do what they like.

  • Randy Minder

    Of course, this is right in line with what the Bible says is going to happen, just before the return of Christ. Everything will look hopeless, and then the Antichrist will step in, provide the world with solutions for 3.5 years, and then the next 3.5 years will be God’s final judgment on mankind. These are exciting times, if you are a Biblical Christian. If not, there is still time to ask Christ for forgiveness and accept his free offer of salvation.

    • GSOB

    There is reason to worry, American people, out of all occidental countries, are firm believers in angels !!! They can relax and count on an angel to come out and save them all. Yes, there is an urgent need for change, in the first economy in the world 46 million people live in the streets and 100 million live on welfare, in the world 1 billion people starve while the American die of obesity or related complications. Besides, as role model for all occidental countries, the USA are number ONE for crime, rape, Co2 emissions, divorce rate, teen birth rate, heart attacks, prisonners in jail, Mc Donald restaurants, plastic surgeries and weapons production. We need a collapse of such an unhealthy system to go back to real survival values: clean water,clean air,clean food without Monsanto, less God and less angels, more cheese made out raw milk and some French wine to go with it…

      Great quotes 1stVArifleman

  • Washington

    It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot, and do not replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

    If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.
    If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red.
    If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it’s because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan .

    If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way. There are no unsolvable government problems.

    Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power.

    Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do!

  • I noticed some time ago that the politicians no longer cared what the people thought about much of anything. I figured that they obviously knew something that I didn’t know, and I would really like to know what that is. This collapse has been planned for a long time. Just look around – you can see their handywork at the doors of every household. I wish I believed that it will get better, and not worse…

  • Ninz

    The only reason financial collapses such as the one we experiencing now can happen is the fact that private bankers create our “money” out of thin air through loans and the fact that the interest charged for borrowing is not created, making the debt impossible to repay. The only solution to this problem is to take back control of our monetary system and take it out of the hands of crooked world bankers who have engineered this collapse.

    We are not in the midst of a food, energy, money and water crisis, we are in the final stages of their plan. I watched Chris Martenson’s horrible “pyramid” video and not once did he, or any of his collegues mention this solution. He and his collegues are bought and paid for by the bankers and you should not listen to their propaganda.

    The money system itself is the problem, and unless we create money ourselves, without interest, the private bankers will continue to rule, control and destroy humanity at their will.

  • GA

    Great information as always. The world governments absolutely know its coming. Fall is almost here and that’s usually when things fall apart. If it doesnt this year then we must consider ourselves very fortunate. Prepare hard and prepare fast. It’s coming and there is nothing anybody can do to stop it or even slow it down at this point. Put aside blame for now and focus your energy on preparedness and survival strategies.

  • C Hasie

    Throughout history, I doubt any generation has had an existence as cush as my own, Generation X.
    We have also been afforded the luxury of defining our own existence in the latter part of our lives. The future is the equation. We solve for x.
    No reason to speculate on if an imminent collapse will occur. History repeats itself. Prosperity and poverty are the Yin and Yang of civilization’s progress, forever in motion. This cycle is the reason that keeping the peace requires preparing for war at all times, good and bad. Despite the best intentions of some of the most ignorant policymakers in our history, the USA has spent an entire century doing just that.
    We are not born with the Right for the government to protect you. We are born with the Right to protect ourselves. Don’t count on the govt to save you. Just remember how blessed we are to live here. If your neighbor needs a hand, that is your country calling you into service.
    Define Generation X by first defining yourself. Don’t decide now who to blame later for a future out of your control. Take control. If we step into a grey tomorrow, stave the Four Horseman off with self reliance and a firm foothold in faith. The definition of God may have changed through the ages but I have reason to doubt that God ever did.
    Take comfort in knowing where the Genesis of a New World Order will begin. From the ashes of every economic burnout grows the nourishment for our children and the cotton to clothe. Get yourself a gun and the family can enjoy a well rounded meal. All veggies all the time probably gets old if thats all there is. Being a vegetarian is something that can only be enjoyed during the good times. If the steak isn’t there to turn down then whats the point anyway? Get a gun or just thank your local farmer’s now for a future where every meal is side dish. Remember also that this country was built on the stuff in an after dinner smoke as well, just to put that tobacco Right we gave away into perspective. Decide that your liberty will be taken and no more will given away. A little bit at a time is the design by which it is taken, the idea being slowly and without force until so little liberty is left enough force exists to retain control.
    The equation for the future is simple and the same for every individual. If X=gun control, given that he who has the gun, also has the control, then X is up to each and every person, to be used in the pursuit of happiness. If I had been in on the meeting I’d have suggested the word “happiness” be changed to “peace of mind.” The sentence would say, “Decide first to be happy but the choice is up to you.” Many refuse to anyway but this is hardly an act of treason. Anyway, I wasn’t there but our forefathers are still with us today, are they not?
    The Right is yours. Be the X factor and remember that every issue is a constitutional equation. Freedom only exists in theory. The concept has always been subject to amendment. Best to keep the definition very broad.
    Decide now that our generation will handle whatever comes our way, well aware that we influence the shape of whatever arrives. We always live in the future of yesterday. The constitution was never meant to be the promise of a rose garden and even it was, Rose gardens require constant attention.

  • Hi!, Patrons Of The Economic Collapse:

    St. Mark 4:39…And He arose and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace be still. And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. St. Luke 12:32…Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. 1 John 4:18 – 21…There is no fear in love but perfect love casts out all fear, because fear brings torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love. (19): We love Him because He first loved us. (20): If a man says he loves God but hates his brother, he is a liar: for he who loves not his brother whom he can see, how can he love God whom he has never seen? (21): And this commandment we have from Him, that he who loves God love his brother also. Acts 2:44 – 47….And all that believed were together, and had all things in common; (45): And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. (46): And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart. (47): Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the Church daily such as hould be saved. St. John 14:26 & 27…But the Comforter which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Fathr will snd in my name, he shall teach you all things and bring all things to your rememberance, whatsoever I have said unto you. St John 15:26…But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send to you from the Father, even the spirit of truth which proceeds from the Father, he shall testify of me. (27): And you also shall bear withness, because you have been with me from the beginning.
    So, it was on the day of Pentecost in Acts 2 of OUR New Testiment Agreement history that the Holy Spirit manifested His love which totally rearranged society as it had been known forever into His immage of warmth through love everlasting between friends who shared their lives through the Spirit’s love shed abroad in their hearts outwards towards all men. I could say more here but isn’t it best that eah of us who believe in Him listen for the beat of His Spirit’s love in each of OUR hearts, to enable ourselves to get His mssages to us direct from Him and His Holy Spirit? It has been said by a preacher that, when we talk of or about God, the prepositons of & about detect seperaion from God but, when we are experiencing God firsthand, we do it best in the silence of our own souls. Thus: be still and know I am God!


    • GSOB

      To RUSS SMITH,

      Your promoting statement of a preacher once said,…

      “It has been said by a preacher that, when we talk of or about God, the prepositons of & about detect seperaion from God but, when we are experiencing God firsthand, we do it best in the silence of our own souls. Thus: be still and know I am God!”

      I detect that these statements leaves one dumfounding, confused, misleading and very potentially – useful by spiritually abusive leaders, because it’s very much like a staement that comes from spiritually abusive teachers as a means to control the laity.

      Be careful.
      It just doesn’t make sense.

    I live in Cape Town, South Africa. My biggest fear is that people over here have no clue as to what is about to unfold. A plus minus 50% unemployment rate, a very corrupt and tender rigged system benefiting only a few individuals and riots breaking out all over the country over service delivery on a daily basis. The fact that South Africa still holds 50% of the worlds gold reserves according to the USGS and the recent discovery of huge reserves of natural gas in the Karoo basin seems to be a recipe for war, both civil and international, within our borders in the near future (Should such a collapse occur). It should be noted that every currency in the world is tied to the US Dollar so, if there is a Dollar collapse then the Rand and every other currency worldwide will collapse as well.Very scary situation indeed. Thanks once again for your informative articles and may the Good Lord have mercy on our planet.

    Obama’s College Classmate: ‘The Obama Scandal Is at Columbia

    I am President Obama’s classmate at Columbia University, Class of ’83. I am also one of the most accurate Las Vegas oddsmakers and prognosticators. Accurate enough that I was awarded my own star on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars. And I smell something rotten in Denmark. Obama has a big skeleton in his closet. It’s his college records. Call it “gut instinct” but my gut is almost always right. Obama has a secret hidden at Columbia- and it’s a bad one that threatens to bring down his presidency. Gut instinct is how I’ve made my living for 29 years since graduating Columbia.
    Obama and his infamous strategist David Axelrod understand how to play political hardball, the best it’s ever been played. Team Obama has decided to distract America’s voters by condemning Mitt Romney for not releasing enough years of his tax returns. It’s the perfect cover. Obama knows the best defense is a bold offense. Just keep attacking Mitt and blaming him for secrecy and evasion, while accusing him of having a scandal that doesn’t exist. Then ask followers like Senator Harry Reid to chase the lead. The U.S. Senate Majority Leader appears to now be making up stories out of thin air, about tax returns he knows nothing about. It’s a cynical, brilliant, and vicious strategy. Make Romney defend, so he can’t attack the real Obama scandal.
    This is classic Axelrod. Obama has won several elections in his career by slandering his opponents and leaking sealed documents. Not only do these insinuations and leaks ruin the credibility and reputation of Obama’s opponents, they keep them on the defensive and off Obama’s trail of sealed documents.
    By attacking Romney’s tax records, Obama’s socialist cabal creates a problem that doesn’t exist. Is the U.S. Senate Majority Leader making up stories out of thin air? You decide. But the reason for this baseless attack is clear- make Romney defend, so not only is he “off message” but it helps the media ignore the real Obama scandal.
    My answer for Romney? Call Obama’s bluff.
    Romney should call a press conference and issue a challenge in front of the nation. He should agree to release more of his tax returns, only if Obama unseals his college records. Simple and straight-forward. Mitt should ask “What could possibly be so embarrassing in your college records from 29 years ago that you are afraid to let America’s voters see? If it’s THAT bad, maybe it’s something the voters ought to see.” Suddenly the tables are turned. Now Obama is on the defensive.
    My bet is that Obama will never unseal his records because they contain information that could destroy his chances for re-election. Once this challenge is made public, my prediction is you’ll never hear about Mitt’s tax returns ever again.
    Why are the college records, of a 51-year-old President of the United States, so important to keep secret? I think I know the answer.
    If anyone should have questions about Obama’s record at Columbia University, it’s me. We both graduated (according to Obama) Columbia University, Class of ’83. We were both (according to Obama) Pre-Law and Political Science majors. And I thought I knew most everyone at Columbia. I certainly thought I’d heard of all of my fellow Political Science majors. But not Obama (or as he was known then- Barry Soetoro). I never met him. Never saw him. Never even heard of him. And none of the classmates that I knew at Columbia have ever met him, saw him, or heard of him.
    But don’t take my word for it. The Wall Street Journal reported in 2008 that Fox News randomly called 400 of our Columbia classmates and never found one who had ever met Obama.
    Now all of this mystery could be easily and instantly dismissed if Obama released his Columbia transcripts to the media. But even after serving as President for 3 1/2 years he refuses to unseal his college records. Shouldn’t the media be as relentless in pursuit of Obama’s records as Romney’s? Shouldn’t they be digging into Obama’s past–beyond what he has written about himself–with the same boundless enthusiasm as Mitt’s?
    The first question I’d ask is, if you had great grades, why would you seal your records? So let’s assume Obama got poor grades. Why not release the records? He’s president of the free world, for gosh sakes. He’s commander-in-chief of the U.S. military. Who’d care about some poor grades from three decades ago, right? So then what’s the problem? Doesn’t that make the media suspicious? Something doesn’t add up.
    Secondly, if he had poor grades at Occidental, how did he get admitted to an Ivy League university in the first place? And if his grades at Columbia were awful, how’d he ever get into Harvard Law School? So again those grades must have been great, right? So why spend millions to keep them sealed?
    Third, how did Obama pay for all these fancy schools without coming from a wealthy background? If he had student loans or scholarships, would he not have to maintain good grades?
    I can only think of one answer that would explain this mystery.
    Here’s my gut belief: Obama got a leg up by being admitted to both Occidental and Columbia as a foreign exchange student. He was raised as a young boy in Indonesia. But did his mother ever change him back to a U.S. citizen? When he returned to live with his grandparents in Hawaii or as he neared college-age preparing to apply to schools, did he ever change his citizenship back? I’m betting not.
    If you could unseal Obama’s Columbia University records I believe you’d find that:
    A) He rarely ever attended class.
    B) His grades were not those typical of what we understand it takes to get into Harvard Law School.
    C) He attended Columbia as a foreign exchange student.
    D) He paid little for either undergraduate college or Harvard Law School because of foreign aid and scholarships given to a poor foreign students like this kid Barry Soetoro from Indonesia.
    If you think I’m “fishing” then prove me wrong. Open up your records Mr. President. What are you afraid of?
    If it’s okay for U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to go on a fishing expedition about Romney’s taxes (even though he knows absolutely nothing about them nor will release his own), then I think I can do the same thing. But as Obama’s Columbia Class of ’83 classmate, at least I have more standing to make educated guesses.
    It’s time for Mitt to go on the attack and call Obama’s bluff.

    • Jodi

      I agree, It’s time for Mitt to go on the attack. If Romney does go on the attack, I’ll bet you that you’ll never hear a word about Romney’s taxes again. He’s hiding something and it’s bad.

      • Nancy

        Jodi…Mitt is one of them…a cabalist. He and obummer are on the same team. The government is corrupt to the core. In fact the United States of America Corporation took over many years ago and now they are bankrupt. Mitt is a joke, can’t you see that? Please wake up. Do your research. It’s the illuminate that selects who will be president, not you or I. Voting is corrupt…it’s all corrupt. There is a huge change coming and you need to be prepared. Mark my word…the whole system is coming down…this fall.

        • GSOB

          I am more inclined to agree with you Nancy.

          I’d like to add to this thought, I hope you don’t mind…

          The MSM’s stirring and presentation of our choices is all staged. The voting process is a stacked deck of cards. Not only are the banksters controlling the presidential election process, but it’s controlled through the regulated media.

          Follow the money.

          Woodrow Wilson was elected to get the Federal reserve private bank in control, so as to control our monetary system and produce our currency – in secrecy really.

          He was a leader in the progressive movement, and here are some events towards the cause of that agenda:

          Term of Office: March 4, 1913 – March 3, 1921
          Some major events while in office:
          •Seventeenth Amendment ratified calling for direct election of Senators (1913)
          •Federal Reserve Act (1913)
          •World War I (1914-1918)
          •Lusitania Sunk (1915)
          •United States entered World War I by declaring war on Germany (1917)
          •Treaty of Versailles (1919)
          •Eighteenth Amendment ratified prohibiting alcoholic beverages (1919)

          Quote from WW:
          “I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” -Woodrow Wilson, after signing the Federal Reserve into existence.

          Notice the word ‘unwittingly’….,

          The massess are like horses with limited sight, running straight on course into the direction the control mongers want….. more control.

          Corruption is very rampant.
          To tell you the truth..(and some may find this highly unrealistic)…
          although I’ll not vote for either one of these staged candidates…(I don’t trust either one)
          … if it really does come down to the two the media wants us to select from…
          I would rather take Obama than Romney.


          4 more of the same is better than 4 with potentially 4 more, totaling 8 of the same. 4 of Romney in a spiraling collapse will just about gaurantee 4 more for him to blame it on the former pres., allowing him 4 more to fix it.

          Both are supported financially by the same banksters.

          I do not believe Obamacare would be repealed by Romney the Romulan. At best, maybe modified a bit for religious purposes, freedom. – that’s it. I don’t want to be right on this either,…

          I just don’t trust Mitt. He is the flippiest of the flip floppers. His smile is cheesy and his speechs lack inspiration… just flat lined…he follows the money. There is no fresh air in his stale speeches,… they are just aromatized stink.

          The book of mormon is not equal to the 66 books that is canonized as the Holy scriptures, our Bible, the Word of God. Smell the aroma.

          The more things change, the more they stay the same, just unrecognized a little while. The powers that be are staging the candidates and fixing the election as a distraction in order to carry on their agenda.

          The people think they have the only and final say by voting in this sham of a process.

          God help us.

      First of all? Paragraphs.

      Second of all? You may want to find something more interesting to pontificate about than partisan finger-pointing because those in your ditch with you will probably tire of it quickly and there’s no telling how primitive and painful the physical manifestation of “stfu” will become, given lack of access to any but the most medieval of handheld DIY weaponry.

      You are ice skating uphill; expecting one puppet to run counter to its master’s hand gestures to spite the puppet on said master’s other hand. I ask one thing. When the repercussions of such wasted energy visit themselves upon you, make sure you’ve gotten as many of your loved ones free of the damage radius as you can.

      You owe them that.

      Excellent commentary, thank you!

      I’ve also noticed how frequently certain folks like to attack Mitt for his lack of military service. NOBODY I’ve heard ever answers back – and what about Obama’s military service? (Please note, I am not dissing military service, I work for them! But it’s not a requirement for running for president, and I certainly do not believe any parent can “sign up” their sons or daughters to serve… as the one’s who question Romney’s lack of military service also frequently mention he didn’t have his son’s put in the military… as if that were even possible.)

          Also have a look at how much “Green Stuff” there really is. Fiat Currencies (Money) are more a case of I&O than actual material. That’s where a lot of this string falls apart, most everyone misses the point that when presses start rolling to PRINT NEW MONEY, they don’t. All that happens is a few more I&O’s get passed from computer terminal to computer terminal. Watch what happens when people finally make a run on the banks to get “Their Money”, of course the banks will close their doors and have “Holidays”, because they do not have the “Green Stuff”. None of them do, all this guff and show and tell about how much space 1 Billion Dollars takes up in a warehouse is all smoke and mirrors. Wake up folks, when it comes down to monies in the bank your accounts are all under the control of a few fingers hovering over a delete key, your wealth can be transferred to the government via a few simple keystrokes. Wake up and smell the Deadly Nightshade.

    I’m preparing for financial collapse, but the thing that worries me the most is all the nuclear plants around the country and world. If the economy collapses, the nuclear plants wouldn’t be far behind as the workers are going to want to be with their families. I’m not preparing for nuclear fallout. Way too much work.

I told them that this has been going on for a few years but that no one’s been talking about it in the mainstream until recently. These younger, urban, types are starting to get the picture.

    “Does it seem odd to anyone else that only five really big banks got such a warning?”

    Frankly, it really shouldn’t. The government (regulations, regulators, central planners, central banks, big industries, and big unions aka public-private partnership or otherwise in historical unaligned terms Fascism/Corporatism (Government and Big Industry Public-Private Partnership) and Communism (Government and Big Union Public-Private Partnership). Essentially, those five banks are governmental fiefdoms and banking industry partnership of government, which sprouted by institutions who have seized control of the people’s currency.

    “And why keep it secret from the American public?”

    Well, this seems to be integrated into:
    Charles Swann August 12th, 2012 at 6:35 pm · Reply
    “What is amazing is that this is the perfect stage for the emergence of a New World Order, One world Government and the coming world leader the Bible talks about.”

    Essentially, the Financial Collapse, any additional QE3, expanding international sanctions, and continuing dissolution of denominated trade in US Dollars effectively does multiple things:
    1). The dissolution of the US Dollar as the world’s reserve currency effectively skyrockets national debt, which based on the bailouts and backdoor bailouts simply means profits are private for fiefdoms and losses are socialized. I forget the name of the site that I read the article, but it makes a good case for the stages leading and effect of hyperinflation. Essentially, you can’t outrun the hyperinflationary bear, but you don’t need to but simply outrun everyone else. By socializing losses, these institutions are now less dependent on USD and can outrun under-classes from the hyperinflationary bear, which will devour the rest of us. This keys into the dissolution of the US Dollar as the world’s reserve currency.
    2). Once the USD is dissolved as the world’s reserve currency, the demand for USD to conduct and create USD surpluses simply halts, and USD surpluses are simply exported back into the US. Between Monetization through QE3 and being forced to import formerly foreign national surpluses in USD will place tremendous inflationary pressure on the greenback likely to the point of no confidence domestically or abroad (To create a new world reserve currency, the US Dollar’s confidence must be destroyed internationally as well as domestically, but it would be easier for central planners and other interested parties to introduce per say SDR as the world’s reserve currency would require the populace’s to be duped into believing central planners and central bankers aren’t at fault from the get-go).
    3). The ripple effect from a deeply inflated dollar (even to prop up profits from abroad via QE3) would very likely explode the municipality debt bubble. These effectively threatens local, state, and federal economies across the board.
    4). Provided, enough people believed the inevitable trumpeting call for further centralization and/or perhaps centralization at a supranational level; chances are these people would accept a new economic and political union, which would likely enhance the IMF SDR and World Bank (the brain centers of the United Nations or appears to be). Considering, the public wasn’t told; it stands to reason that it was calculated to promote the populace into making uninformed/uneducated decisions particularly under duress.

    “Does the federal government actually expect such a collapse to happen?”

    “Last week, it was revealed that the U.S. government has been secretly directing five of the biggest banks in America “to develop plans for staving off collapse” for the last two years. By itself, that wouldn’t be that big of a deal. But when you add that piece to the dozens of other clues of imminent financial collapse, a very troubling picture begins to emerge. Over the past 12 months, hundreds of banking executives have been resigning, corporate insiders have been selling off enormous amounts of stock, and I have been personally told that a significant number of Wall Street bankers have been shopping for “prepper properties” in rural communities this summer. Meanwhile, there have been reports that the U.S. government has been stockpiling food and ammunition, and Barack Obama has been signing a whole bunch of executive orders that would potentially be implemented in the event of a major meltdown of society.”

    I’d say so. It’s not just mobilizing preparations but also in essence centralize Federal authority effectively conclusively. It’s essentially what those Executive Orders mean; the Executive Branch essentially consolidates control over the Federal government by effectively destroying balance and separation of powers among the three branches of Federal Government and effectively dissolves State’s rights utterly, which in turn effectively nullifies the Constitution entirely.

    If you all worry about the financial collapse of the globe, this is just the beginning, and read this report about the conspiracy of depopulation . .. .

    I don´t think that is the part of God´s Divine plan for us! But rather the power of Evil who are trying to control humanity.
    Profit+ control= Power

    That is the formula of Satan against humanity, and the only way to stop this is by global uprising against the power of Evil; Banks, Corporations, Governments and so on. Stop this ¨The New World Order¨, which will kill over 6 billion people on this planet.

    Also another Conspiracy investigation by Jessy Ventura and you want to watch this one to see how scary that one is than just worrying about financial crisis.

    As this website dedicated to warn about global crisis, I want to deeply share these information so that way you could provide more to public about our uncertain future to warn public in this country and beyond . .of what is about to come soon . . .Don´t trust anything about Governments, they are all Anti-Christ and for those non Religious people consider as Anti-Humanity if you wish. It is planned to destroy many . . .. Please share these information to as many people as possible.

    Thanks and we shall believe in God to fight against the Demons . . ..

      Minimize debt – see Dave Ramsey “Financial Peace University”.
      Get self-sufficient & build a small knit group to trade favors, help, & food.
      Your preparations should start with a look to typical small emergencies (electric out, water boil orders, etc) and then later improve your preparations for increasingly larger problems.
      Protect your finances – avoid the stock market and especially individual stocks.
      Invest in assets that are long-term useful and generate benefits over time. Canning supplies are a good example.
      Find a local prepper group to talk to on

      3. Bottled water or purify your own water at home:
      4. Flash lights with plenty of batteries in stock; plenty of candles will work just as well. If you’re a home owner and if you can afford to, invest in a generator.
      5. A well established and stocked first aide kit.
      6. Plenty of blankets and other necessary clothing, especially if you live in a cold weather climate.
      7. If you don’t believe in the 2nd ammendment of the US Constiution; now is a good time to rethink your political leanings, and go out buy a fire arm and ammunition.

    if The People really wanted to get out of this mess they would stop the hand wringing and re-establish the issue of currency as a function of the Dept of Treasury (see HR2990 and The American Monetary Institute) and NOT a function of banking which creates money as Debt but fails to create the interest, which leads us to the place we are at today. The Math of Private Issue Debt Based Currency always has and always will lead to this place. And it is up to The People to re-establish their own Sovereign Right to issue their own currency as opposed to thinking they have to borrow the thing called money from someone else. No Free People issue their currency as Debt borrowed from someone else. Watch the movie The Money Fix on youtube. National Debt is a fiction. Ever increasing debt growth from the use of Debt As Money is the only place one can get to, so it is time people stopped using Debt As Money. Watch the video series Money As Debt on youtube. Watch The Secret of OZ, The Money Masters and other videos on monetary systems. In this the 21st Century are we all really that stupid as to think that the way we are doing money is the only way it can be done and that only some private elite can create money for the rest of us? Then why did we even have an American Revolution?

  • Mr. G

    Collapse – It’s the best that could happen. By itself, this does not mean the end of the world. We have built up too much phoney finance-derived weight around our true economy. We need to “null and void” all of that. I don’t see that happening without a collapse occurring.

    I actually feel fairly safe in the USA because I know my neighbours are armed to the teeth and so is much of the rest of the country. Although I am not a gun person myself, it is a fact that in the worst case, the government people won’t have an easy time riding over Americans.

    However, I think the fears of an overnight meltdown are overblown. I expect years and years of weakness, probably until 2030 or so. Of course, no one can know the future!

    Anecdotal evidence has led me to reach the same conclusion in the last week or so. Among the things I’ve noticed is that I haven’t received any “cheap and easy” credit access checks of late. I was getting them every couple of days–0% interest, 2% transaction fee–from B of A, Capital One, JPMorgan Chase, Discover. Not a peep from them in the last 3 weeks. Not ONE offer of easy money from any of them!!

    The only other time that I recall when I stopped getting those zero interest offers was the late summer/fall of 2008.

    Made me scratch my head and reconsider buying anything (I haven’t). If the BIG BOYS are hoarding cash and not offering credit to the super prime potential borrowers (800+ scorers), what do they know that I don’t????

    My advice: Set aside a lump of cash (NOT in a bank), make sure your pantry is stocked, keep the gas tanks and cans full and don’t get caught flat footed! Things are not as stable as they appear.

    Thanks, Michael for your corroborating evidence! I was beginning to think I was becoming paranoid!

      A few sage words Paul76, just an addition, forget the money, unless you are in need of toilet paper. You need to horde gold and silver, small coins preferably. Keep your horde in a safe place well away from your house, buried is good, never ever anywhere near a bank vault. Most importantly of all, DO NOT TELL ANYONE THAT YOU HAVE IT. When the SHTF there will be very few that you will be able to trust, choose your friends very carefully. Someone that you considered a friend, under the stress that everyone will be put under, WILL pull a gun on you and demand that you give him what you have. Defend what is your, but be prepared to run if you must, plan a bolt hole somewhere, in the mountains or the country. Get away from large built up areas. You already know that every city contains its level of low lives. When law and order fails, which it will, they WILL be the first ones to come looking to take what you have. Be prepared to shoot to kill, if you don’t, you WILL die, then who will look after your family. THIS IS NOT A GAME.

    Great article, well polled. I’ve been studying Bible prophecy for over 30 years. So my frame of reference for viewing all this is a Biblical world view, “end of time scenario.” Last nite it hit me like a ton of bricks what this is all about. We are about to see the advanced stages of the NWO One World Banking System. A unification of banking means a unified currency for all the nations. (A VALUE UNIFICATION, and not necessarily a single One World currency).

    I’ve been mentally sorting the big picture for weeks. Last night I had a personal “revelation” based Sacred History Scripture Prophecy study. IMHO we’re about to see the ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT BANKING SYSTEM arise. (Rev 13-19)The PTB are reigning in all the banks, cleaning up “the system” for a reboot and advance of a new world Order of banking. Ie, the last prophecy in the Bible concerns the “mark of the beast.”

    So it appears to me that most of the banking activity is a misrepresentation and/or misinterpreted by most traders and investors anticipating big returns of huge currency and resource plays expected. The PTB are adjusting all the banks for the upcoming “Big event.” Asset backed pretenses are rising (hold your breath on that one, we have yet to see the final version.) ALL the countries will have the same currency (value). Unification of all systems into one MOB system. A unified “one-to-one” payment system, entirely digitized and eventually enforced by rigid laws.

    No one country will be ahead of anyone in terms of actual value. Sorry. End of Babylon (Iraqi) rising theology “theory.” No more misinterpretations of Rev. 17 & 18 allowed. All paper money will soon disappear completely. It will be very easy to ZERO out a ZERO based fiat system. The so called RV of the many currencies and “global reset” is not just for Iraq and a few other unique countries. When this “timed event” happens ALL NATIONS (of whatever currency) will be instructed to go to there banks for the IDENTIFICATION EVENT.

    IMO Security issues are going to be tied to this advancing set up of the MOB by this “event”. Each person on the planet will be instructed how to proceed. So it is not simply an RV of the Dinar or all currencies, this is BIG, it is ALL the WORLD’s and each country reigned in by ONE CENTRAL BANK and SYSTEM. This thing is BIG. The changes will probably come with WAR. (Israel goes after Iran) And the warnings against taking “the mark of the beast” (when they get to a code you take “in the flesh”) are the most serious warnings that God has placed in his Word. Pray pray pray so as not to take that mark!

    (By the way, if Israel does go unilateral, that is THE END OF THE WORLD, cause all the world will turn on Israel and all who support her, all the Sabbath keepers and all others who love religious liberty and will be jew protectors and lovers of humanity of the world will die in one final SHOA![as during the first holocaust]) Pray pray pray indeed!

      If you study prophecy you know Israel will not be totally destroyed and neither will Iran. If Israel is destroyed that means Jesus will not be coming back to the Mount of Olives.

    • Repentant

      This may all well be true, however the Mark of the Beast is to leave Christ and follow the world. Paul said that the spirit of the anti-christ was here 2000 yrs ago. Symbolically the mark is on the forehead or the hand which means that you make up your mind (forehead) or do something physically (hand) which is an outright denial of Christ as Lord and follow him no more. The only place in scripture where the 6th chapter has 66 verses is John 6:66 “from that moment on they left him and followed him no more”. Many have already taken the mark and as times grow tougher many more will follow. Much like the crowds that followed Christ up until they found that he required something of them and was not here just to feed and heal them, many will turn away from Christ and go their own way for the sake of convenience. So many have confessed Christ as Lord without ever submitting to his Lordship and the present doctrines of demons that surround us are just making that so much easier to do. After all if you have been taught your whole life that just because you walked an aisle or said a prayer you are going to heaven no matter what….well hopefully you get the point. Truth is Jesus said to follow him and all those who don’t or who cease to follow somewhere along the way are in for a nightmare that will last for all of eternity. Not just for this life. God Bless and stay faithful.

    Hey! Wow! I’ve saved enough dough to earn a capital letter “M” in front of my name! Woo-hoooo!! (Still unemployed though… *sigh*)

    Is an imminent financial collapse inevitable?

    Well… you want the quick and easy answer? YES.
    It’s a mathematical certainty, and it can’t be avoided. Not now. Too late.
    If our politicians really, really wanted to (pretty please, with sugar and strawberries on top), they could fix this Mess. But it’s not in their best intentions to do so.

    Yes, we can land a robot on Mars. But we can’t replace the robots in Congress.

  • David Ralph

    Well, this article resonates with me. The idea of a collapse in economy, energy, food, etc. The enemy conspires to destroy us but there is one who says that HE will remove the veil that is cast over all peoples. It is the kingdoms of this world that are passing away. In the meantime, there is provision, there is safety and there is hope. I believe that there is a divergence of fates here. One for the wise and another for the foolish. One can only make so many preparations but its good to be prepared for unstable times. This isn’t the first time there has been an economic collapse. Life goes on, people recover, new systems are born. You can have it all, but you can’t take it with you. Have you asked the Lord for HIS help??? There is hope for all who call on HIM.
    An economic collapse does not frighten me. I have been provided for all my life. The illuminati are not in control, God is: heaven is HIS throne and the earth is HIS footstool. Whoever rises against you will fall because of you. The ENEMY is a liar. God will supply ALL that this planet needs. History has proven it. Standards of Living have risen along with growing populations.

    The problem is instead of ASKING GOD for provision and blessing, we choose wrongly, yields wars and fighting. Don’t follow a lie, don’t be afraid, don’t give up. Do good. Be the one who gives hope to others. If God be for us, who can be against us?

    This is the kind of betrayal that brings out the pitchforks and torches and the citizens with blood in their eyes. The government can do all the things they want to impose control but it will fail in the end. Bankers can try to hide out in the boonies, but they will be found. WWII was over fifty years ago and people are still hunting for Nazi criminals. This not the middle ages any longer where generations had been subjegated by divine right. Perpetuators of the biggest economic collapse in human history, BEWARE!

    doctor blue You just may be right..sounds just like Obama..if we get four more year of this man, then he will finish what he started, and that is destroying this country. He is not what he makes him self out to be.. he has the backing of the God of this world

  • Jackall

    I also live in South Africa like Mehl Carelse (MP). I regularly receive “Liberty style” e-mails from subscriptions talking about the coming collapse. They all ask: “Are you ready for the coming collapse?” & “Do this and that to ensure your survival”.
    My question is: “Is anybody ready?” What possibly can we do to survive such a calamity and continue surviving, living on a daily base? Some people preach to run for the mountains and survive in the wild….on what? The world is already so overcrowded that hiding away and living undetected is an absolute impossibility and to think you’re going to assemble together on someone’s farm and live as a community is also a pipe dream as the farm will become government / big bank property and all will be arrested for trespassing if you aren’t raided and killed for food first.

    Others again preach to stay put where you are (town house) as it will make no difference where you find yourself during the collapse in terms of having a roof over your head with running water and amenities, etc. and ride out the storm. These are all things that you’ll find lacking out in the wild where you’ll have to plant a crop and wait the season to harvest and run the gauntlet of being killed during food raids for meat, etc.

    For me the ideal answer would have been to be able to escape prior to an undisclosed area with food, seeds, animals, etc. and create a secret survival community that would ride out the storm period and allowed to slowly flourish after everybody else has died from conflict and government round-ups….but alas, it’s impossible to stay undetected anywhere with the over-populated world as it is.

    Even with the liberty communities preaching to store dry foods, seeds, etc. it would be nearly impossible to grow your own foods undetected by raid parties searching for food and who would kill you just the same to get their grubby hands on your food.
    I see large scale enslaving practices coming with bloody rebellions if the worst case scenarios do come to pass…and surviving that, will be an on-the-spot-decision making process and I fear not many will succeed / survive…the planners did their decades-long planning with great foresight and insight and have ensured that there will be virtually no escaping the “New Order”…the nets have already been cast long ago by designing the financial trap exactly the way it’s happening.

    This collapse is not by accident, or poor management, but by design. It was always meant as a means to an end, …and the “New Order” Bill Clinton and our previous President FW de Klerk announced prior to South Africa’s election in 1994 is the ultimate goal. de Klerk even anounced that they will not tolerate anyone standing in the way to bring about the aims of the New World Order. Money and the ensuing debt crisis was simply to snare the world to ensure obedience to the new masters who I believe will duly be introduced to the world.

    I am not a pessimistic person, but do question the executable survival advice coming from people who seem to have all the answers. We know what’s coming, but what to really do to survive will in my mind drive us mentally back to a state of animal survival instinct to make sure you see the sun rise each day, but how that will play out cannot be per-determined by soothsayers who advise you to buy Gold, etc. I am not sure about other countries, but can one actually buy and own pure, un-worked gold?…or rather gold fashioned items like jewelry which are not pure gold.
    The nearing End Game will not be so frightening for nothing…even the Holy Bible speaks of people’s hearts failing from fear during this time of tribulation.


  • Henry

    Well i have seen bible quotes and all in these comments so i feel there can be no harm directing people to this site.

  • PhilFree

    Listen up guys and gals – this is a plan. The collapse is a manufactured and deliberate event designed to a) trim the population of dissenters and other undesirables b) remove and reset the current financial system with a fully integrated DNA scanning microchipped, system of total monetary financial control – don’t do what you are told and they just disconnect you and let you starve. By the time the fires are quenched and “order” is restored, the majority of people left will be so scared they will do ANYTHING they are told, and most of the ones who would have protested will be locked up indefinitely in a concentration camp or shot. The Reuters news agency that feeds much of the media and is the source of many news stories is owned by the Rothchild mafia, along with the World Bank, IMF, Bank of England etc etc (worth 50 trillion $ if you want to know where your money has gone.) This cabal is an example of the “illuminati” so well known to the conspiracy theorists around the world, elitist fascists who believe themselves superior because of the ************** they happened to drop out of. Money is the problem – stop using it and valuing it and instead give it back to those who made it.

  • rockclimber

    Hello Michael,

    I always enjoy reading your fine editorials, but I have heard people like Alex Jones and other saying there would be an economic collapse as far back as 2006. One thing that cannot be disputed is that a collapse is obviously inevitable and the only real solution is a global jubilee (which nobody talks about, not even Christians who should) Nobody wants a collapse to happen but what is your best guess as to when it might happen and I do mean what year? I have heard as far out as 2018 by ‘economic experts’ but the dollar is still the ‘prettiest girl on the block’ with nothing to replace it in the short term. So again, what year would you expect this to happen?

    • Michael


      As I have written about before, the economic collapse is not a single event….

      There will be moments of great crisis. We saw a “wave” in 2008 and another wave is rapidly approaching.

      But that won’t be the end. More waves will come.

      And things will get progressively worse over time.


      • rockclimber


        Thank you for your kind response and for poiting me to the article, which makes so much sense. It will come in waves no doubt as it has been doing!

        Orlov wrote an excellent piece called “The 5-stages of collapse” which I’m sure you must have read at some point. It is one of those ‘food for thought’ reads that must be confronted to give people an idea of what the various stages might look like.

        Keep up the great work and I always look forward to reading your sites and have sent your editorials to many who have ‘woken up’.

        • Esdraelon

          It is quite interesting how the Revelation in the Scriptures prophesies using the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, signifying 1) cultural and 2) economic collapse, 3)war and 4)death, the ‘mark or the beast’ in order to work, buy or sell, a one world government, a one world religion, covering a last 7 years, ending with Armageddon and Christ’s return to prevent mankind’s annihilating itself. On the worlds stage today it is simply too eerie a parallel scenario to ignore out of hand.

  • rockclimber

    Also…all nations that are facing bankruptcy should go the way of Iceland. I would preach that until the cows come home.

    On a side note, a war with Iran is completely unneccesary but I fear it is going to happen since the Neocons are pushing for it and they always get their way…

    Money is a Tool invented and controlled by the society itself to serve the entire society and nothing more. To attempt to additionally assign to it a value unto itself and even its own power to recreate itself is to misunderstand the origin and the purpose and the function of money in a truly honest social order.
    We Are The Money. We do not need to borrow ourselves and our enterprise into existence, so we certainly do not have to borrow the tools for the exchange of this enterprise into existence either. To do so would be an end to Free Enterprise.

      • xander cross

        There is noting wrong with preparing. But he does a lot of sensational headlines thought. Good articles, but I personally believe that he is trying to provoke the masses to do something else than prepare. It’s like alex jones, each time, jones says that they are coming for you, don’t do the census forms, they going to kill you. But yet, alex jones made millions of of people like you, guido, knightowl77 and lives in a gated community with millions. Also, him and ron paul always want you to buy gold from them, it’s a scam.

    Just get ready for the global up-rising. When the global financial system collapses, here comes uprising . . . . .this is the only logical thing left to do against Demons; Banks, Corporations, better yet Elites as you know.

But God is on our side and have no fear my friends. And ¨Good¨ must prevail and that is the Revelation in every holy books at every religion . .. .this is not a religious event is about to come, but rather our destiny for the better world to come.

  • Mark

      Mark, btw, certain doesn’t mean tomorrow before noon. Certain does not speak of a time frame, it means the event is assured, inevitable. There’s no date mentioned in the article, just the fact that the current situation is irreversible. Check out for yourself and see if it doesn’t make sense.

    What do I think?

    As always, I have believed you to be correct Michael. But what I cannot do is repeat the same statistics over and over. I believe we have different roles: you to sound the alarm, and me to encourage people and help them to keep going.

    I have been placed in a unique position. Since the 2008 collapse, I have spoken with hundreds of people on the edge of despair. I have been in the same position, still continue to face high education debt, and can give a perspective that is encouraging and empathetic.

    In two weeks I board a plane for China, where I will teach business law at a Chinese university. This will last for two years. My objective over there will be the same as here: keep people in the game, and through my experiences, help young people starting their lives to maneuver within this system.

    The truth is that none of us know what will happen, and in my prayer life, God has led me in no other direction than to move forward. My hope is that things improve, and I have been given the job, with the platform, in order to help.

    With God’s help, we can reverse course. And I have a fundamental faith in God’s goodness, His direction, and faith in people. We shall see.

    • GaryToo

      jeremy “what do i think”… that is some seriously wishy washy lukewarm crap. You completely ignore the bible you claim to belong to. Teaching business law is nothing to do with preaching, lets not pretend. “keep people in the game, help them manuever within the sytem. You are not a chaplain, the opposite. Business and lawyers, fatcat saducees and pharisees.

  • The real truth about money is that when it is used as an instrument of exchange for goods, services, and financial obligations; the ownership and possession of these items does not transfer to the user.

    In other words, money according to the laws of commerce and regulation when it is accepted and used is a debt transfer and promise of repayment upon both parties.

    This is why it is called a Bill

    Arguments constructed on this topic, overlook the fact that money is not a property that an individual can own including the items purchased

    (2 Chr 7:14 KJV) “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will HEAL THEIR LAND.”

I mean, if there were no ads selling survival shit , and other ” save yourself ” products on the same page , the article may of been more effective.You only wrote the art. to promote your resources of life saving help , but if that’s what you were going for , than you did well. I’ve got real news for you though……there is nothing anybody is going to be able to do to save themselves when God is the one puting the end to it which he is , and will…..:)

      Actually, God helps those who cannot help themselves. There are times when things get so tough on us that we have no place to go except to God. That is when he helps, when we ask Him to. As long as we keep thinking that we can figure it out without Him, we will never succeed. I challenge you to find in the scriptures where it says that God helps those who help themselves. and May God help you to see that you need him.

    • The Wiseman

      The Bible says, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end, it leads to death” (Pvbs 14:12
      Isaiah 9:10 says,”The bricks are fallen down, but we will rebuild with hewn stone; the sycamores are cut down, but we shall replace them with cedars.”

      Many years ago – just before the Fall of Jerusalem – God tried to inform His people that their ways were wrong and against His laws, by sending against Jerusalem a series of natural and man-made disasters. His message was, “Repent and change your ways and I will heal you!” Instead, the people reacted as seen in Isaiah 9:10.

      It may seem right to our culture – i.e., gutsy, God helps those who help themselves, “Can Do!”, “We Can Do it!” but God doesn’t want that; instead, He wants us to turn to Him and change our ways, i.e., – teach our kids about Him; deny homosexual marriage, stop making war without a good reason, give the genuinely poor a place at the table; have compassion on those less fortunate. And worship God as the Bible teaches.
      Instead of following God’s suggestions, and using their “Free Will” so hard won in the Garden of Eden – ancient Israel chose the path described in Isaiah 9:10 – they rebuilt, fought back against their enemies, and persisted in their bad ways until in the end – they were captured and made slaves, Jerusalem was burnt to the ground, and ancient Israel was no more.

      God is telling us to change our ways. By the way, Joe – “God helps those who help themselves” is NOT found anywhere in the Bible. It is totally a man made saying. While is IS ok to do these things, one first must follow God.

      • this guy

        I would just like to point something out to you. You said “have compassion on those less fortunate”. Yet at the same time, you also said “deny homosexual marriage”. Therefore, being homosexual makes you less you fortunate due to people judging you so harshly. In my eyes, that doesn’t seem very compassionate. Feel free to argue.

  • Great news these are the Last Days of this evil beastly system.
    Yes it will hurt and kill many before its over.
    Great news is there is hope and a protected place for those who will still believe ALL that the prophets have spoken.
    Now on the other hand you too can be one of those fools that the Messiah was talking about in Luke 24:25.
    The prophets wrote that in the Last Days there would be a place established that would return to the sinple truths found written in the Hebrew Scriptures since the beginning of man. Isa.2:2 and Mic.4:1
    That place is here the time is now.
    Come see what great things Father Yahweh and His Dear Son are doing in your life time.

    Great peace have they that love Your Law….Ps.119:165.

    Hi Guys,
    I think that the governments are doing a good job, they are supplying cash to the markets helping them unwind.
    I think the only people that are going to be uncomfortable are the ones that took on to much credit to do things that would never work.
    Also the financial system is a continuos system of the smart people taking the money the dumb people give them.
    A smart person makes soda and cigarettes.
    Who buys these products???
    Smart people?/
    I dont think so.
    So if you are dumb, educate yourself and find a smart person to bounce things off.
    If your smart, kill the pig.

Stick to the point of discussion and leave you crazy god rants out of it. By the way my brother is a priest and not even he would say such dribble.

  • The 99% VS the 1% – A battle to be fought and won with truth and unity! The people have finally started to come together. You cannot convince me that tiny Iceland can handle the “Cabal” and WE cannot!
    Now is the time to join forces with those you would not normally consider. This is all starting to leak out to the main stream media… finally. We just need to KEEP THE HEAT on them. We will soon be posting new petition and email campaign info as well as protest ideas. We just need more people following this group and we can use resources from the Tea Party, Occupy and other groups. THEY win as long as they can keep us arguing with each other.
    WE need to come together with people we wouldn’t normally work with to bring these criminals DOWN! Spread the word, others have carried the load of exposing this activity. Now we the people NEED to come out and make it a major issue in the news and in this political cycle.

    Love the article, hate the all the religious BS about God. Please save it for church for God’s sake. Do you reall think God gives a ********* about us? I think he has better things to do, like expand the universe. And this is coming from someone who does believe in God but this has nothing to do with God, just greedy Mother ************ in business and congress and the NWO.

  • zuri7000

    I feel that they are up to no good. But I put my faith in the Lord and pray, even for them while they plot and plan. They will eventually fall into their own traps. Fear not what man can do to you, but fear him who not only can destroy the body but have the power to cast it into hell.

    • N

      God don’t care if our banks collapse. And which God are you talking about anyway? What makes you think your God is the right one out of all the thousands throughout history?

    • Good for you ! I believe in JESUS also.

  • T Man

    for all those that are saying we should pray and bringing in all the God stuff. religion, sports, tv, welfare, it’s all formed in such a way To control the masses. hell even government and large corporations have their bit of control as well. as for this article well can’t hide from the truth. and dam if you can’t see it happening then you must have failed Math class !!!. hell ask anyone that has big dept strap them down. at some point it all goes to shit. simply because the hole ur in there is no way out. It’s a very simple concept, spending way more than you take in always ends Bad. but what get’s me thinking, is not how much they have been spending. but what they have been spending it on. more under ground complex’s,huge seed vaults, weather control, and so much more. all one has to do is look at history if the system crumbles we will all be broke meaning the average person, and we will be faced with another world war. that’s been our history. Problem— reaction—solution ….. if you under stand this concept and have no concern at all for all that reside on this planet, put it to use because it will get you what ever you want. simple one word deff—- manipulation

  • There is still plenty of wealth, and plenty of creative alternatives. However, the REAL system is based on huge lies, backed by violence, which is now a RUNAWAY! The basic problem is human insanity, which due to the long history of those who were the “best” at being dishonest ending up controlling what the rest of us actually do!

    All the standing domestic and internationally held “liquid” investment assets in government mandated funds within the United States: $110,000,000,000,000 (conservatively calculated).

    — Walter Burien –

    That is an illustration of the ouroboros of incorporated robbery, which shows the paradox that We the People had the power to rob ourselves blind! We the People indirectly “own” the vast majority of everything, through our empowering governments to relentlessly rob ourselves for a long time … However, a tiny, tiny, tiny minority actually understand and direct that system! Given that way more than 99% of the people act like political idiots, while way less than 1% take advantage of that standing situation, consider this presentation of the economic facts:


    * U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000

    * Fed budget: $3,820,000,000,000

    * New debt: $ 1,650,000,000,000

    * National debt: $14,271,000,000,000

    * Recent budget cuts: $38,500,000,000

    Let’s now use the same numbers,
    remove 8 zeros and pretend
    it’s a household budget:

    * Annual family income: $21,700

    * Money the family spent: $38,200

    * New debt on the credit card: $16,500

    * Outstanding balance on credit card: $142,710

    * Total budget cuts so far: $38.50

    Those numbers illustrated how that American Family is the victim of a home invasion by the banksters. The banksters’ “solutions” are world war, martial law, & mass murder of the people!

    The banksters’ pyramid scheme was ALWAYS absolutely guaranteed to collapse into chaos, the ONLY questions were exactly when and how … When society is controlled by the triumph of huge lies, the collapse back to some residual reality is certainly going to happen, some time, in some way!

    Paradoxically, the final failure is caused by too much “success” of the triumph of lies inside of a fundamentally fraudulent financial accounting system. Everything has been built using a bent rubber ruler, with some very bad consequences, that were always predictable … except nobody who was not better at telling lies, and backing those up by being violent, could do anything practical to change that path we are on …

    Thus, the astonishing situation, where there is still plenty of wealth, and plenty of creative alternatives, but NOTHING to stop the runaway triumph of insane lies from continuing to control what civilization is still doing!!!

    The deeper problems are that nature will likely be going nuts, at the same time as civilization is going crazy, because everything is interconnected … although we do NOT know how that works, nor which comes first in that toroidal vortex system.

    I wish, wish, wish that the 99% plus would stop being political idiots, brainwashed by the biggest bullies’ bullshit! I wish that the vast majority would stop believing in impossible ideals and fairy tales, and understand that their money system depends on their murder system, and that they should democratize the death controls, in order to democratize the debt controls, in ways that were better for everyone, in the longer term.

    However, the reality is that civilizations go down their path of least resistance, which is their path of least morality, because those who actually run the money/murder systems, that do the real debt controls, are those who were the best at the death controls, by being the best at dishonesty, and backing that up with violence.

    Thus, the vicious spiral spins! There is plenty of wealth and plenty of creative alternatives, BUT, what we are actually doing is the result of being tricked and fooled by huge lies, while the controlled opposition is just as much a part of that system as the established elites are!




    Hah! We just need the political miracles of enough of us thinking differently, in order to behave differently. However, that does not seem realistically possible until after serious collapses to chaos impede out morbid habits, and force us to think differently.

    The grand spiral of paradoxical truth is that we already have a money/murder system, and there must be some such system in the real world. However, those who built and operate that system were those who were the best at lying about it, while the reactionary revolutionaries, who oppose those established elites, are almost totally goofballs that denounce those established system, and then assert that no such systems should exist at all!

    There are so many levels in that infinite tunnel of deceits, and the lies are different at every level.


    Human reality is a hypercomplicated mixture of physical and biological facts, mediated through psychological fantasies … and therefore, the economic collapse must be some amalgamated conglomeration of relatively objective facts, combined with astonishingly preposterous lies. The most astonishing aspect of that is that the most preposterous of lies are those which are now most controlling our civilization, though both the established elites’ and their controlled opposition’s ideas.

    Under stressful circumstances, more people are likely to become more insane, rather than saner, and so, all bets are off when enough of those people are more or less forced to face facts that they did not know, and did not want to know, until their reality collapses around them … Under those circumstances, it is quite impossible to predict where that collapsing finally stops, and what we could start to rebuild after that point …

    We will go all the way around the block, to recognize there still was a lot of wealth, and a lot of creative alternatives!

    Come this Monday (August 20, 2012): You need to be ready to purchase Proshares SDOW ETFs (leveraged -3 times) or DOG (not leveraged but -1 times Dow) shares and be short the Dow, but be ready to sell if the Dow goes over 13338.70….the previous high. The Dow above 13338.70 will mean that we have a little more time left before “moving” down WELL below 6000…more like 1000.

    • Exquisitive

      Brilliant suggestion. Liquidated equity holdings on Wednesday, myself.
      Hope this isn’t really the beginning of that drastic move down.

  • GaryToo

    thanks michael this is great work, can I just point out that the drought is not only in north america, but in all temperate wheat belt zones. Australia especially the west, India, Italy, Russia and others. Suicide among small farmers is a tragic epidemic in these places.

    • Penelope

      The drought is supposed to last through 2015, worldwide. China is going to have it as bad as we did during the Great Depression because their farming techniques are about as advanced as ours were then. So, just another minute fact that may become increasingly apparent and important as we have 3 years left of this drought thing.

  • rose

    I think it’s time to chop wood and carry water. PLANT Back yard gardens with our own food, getting the neighborhood together so we can share our resources. Prayer is good, but FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD! We as a people did this to ourselves. However the mind that created the problem, can’t be the same mind that fixes it. The only reason there is a top 1% is because the bottom 99% buy their products and make them rich. Can you imagine if we didn’t believe all the advertising and saved our money instead, where we would be? Do we really need to support big industry, banks and the like, when all they do is try to find ways to take the money out of our pockets. Stop supporting the machine. SOBER UP!!! Put the beer down, turn off the tube and come to terms with each of us putting up what we can to get us out of this mess. OTHER WISE WE PERISH! But we still have a little time. Blessings on your walk. Get some hiking boots, we’re headed for rough terrain!!!

  • Guest

    AS USUAL THESE BIBLE THUMPING IDIOTS just want to bury their heads in the sand while their children have NO FUTURE whatsoever!
    ALL THESE WARS ARE OVER RELIGION and the catholic church has already been proven to be a fraud, full of child abuse and sanctioning of slavery etc.
    I really hate these bible beating idiots because they don’t help anything!
    OK sit at home while your relatives suffer abroad, or your child commits suicide or a close neighbour comtemplates something seriouly wrong – then go and *************************** HA HA.

  • haha

    Are you guys kidding me pray and all your problems will go away, Ha that’s one of the dumbest things I have ever heard. The economic collapse can’t be cured by god, or maybe he could give us some money, he collects it every Sunday the man must be super rich by now. LOL. Wake up you brain washed morons your being controlled by your church just as much as the government controls you.

  • Skippy

    Well at least some of you have got it right.CoreyG/Texas is definately talking sense….one problem, when the ball really gets rolling the big knobs at the top are in the position to pull the plug on the means of communication we take for granted. If you REALLY want to get on top of this then you had better forget about Cell phones, iPads and the Internet. Need to go back to basic radio communications to start with. Remember when everyone had a CB radio, need to go backwards to move forwards. Where to go? I’m an Aussie in Oz, feel safer in some ways but not in another. You guys can readily take up arms, we cannot, strict arms control in Australia, plans made earlier so it is easier to subdue the population, lot harder to have an uprising if the only ones with guns are the ones you are rising up against. Build networks of like minded people NOW, and do take some of that ludicrous sounding advice (Said by others, not me) and stock up on non-perishables, medical supplies, water filters, outdoor supplies of any kind, make up a quick grab and run bag for every member of your family, maps etc. The fight is coming. As to those who put their faith in a non exist deity, good luck to you, preach from the best science fiction novel ever sold and see if it helps, not squat. Good luck to all. One more thing, study hand crafts, wood work, mechanics, things that will help you and others when nothing works. Read more articles on what is going on, information is power, and in this situation you need all the information you can get.

  • Skippy

    To the Publisher of this article. Please, oooow please start another thread for these brain fried bible bashers. If I had known that this article was for “Pulpit Pumpers” I would not have come near it. I have read a good number of article stating the American Government are systematically dumbing down the population, looking at a very large amount of these posts it seems to be working. I suppose blind ignorant bliss must feel good to some. An observation, I think a very clear one at that is that again the greater majority of these posters have no real idea about what goes on in other parts of the world, the over generalisation is amazing. These voices of ignorance ring loudly. Hello, there is other places outside of the borders of the NOT SO GREAT US of A.

  • Orlando City of Lights October 9,2010
    Dear President: Blessed Obama
    I hope that you and your family are in the best state of health.
    Before the presidential elections of the Year 2004; a Book that was dictated to me from above, it was published at The Revelation for Peace from Jesus Christ to the World. The Book was emailed to the Vatican, some protestant preachers, few US senators and the Media; but the Book was not taken seriously. None the less Mr. President; on page 22 (the last page) of the Book placed on line on 2004, it is written:
    “And behold; the night vision was now like in a great television screen showing the name: The King of MYSTERY BABYLON the GREAT; then there appeared the President of the United States of America; dressed with a tricolor hooded cloak garment of stars. And he had in his head a crown of gold that was melting; and the precious metal was going into his eyes making him blind; and when he walked toward a ceremonial bowl filled with water to clean his eyes; he then tripped his foot against a Stone, a tried Stone, a precious corner Stone set by the ceremonial bowl that was filled with water. And as he stumbled and fell, his right foot got caught into the ceremonial vessel and the water turned to blood. The President was trying desperately to get his foot out of the bowl while his back was against the floor; but his foot was caught in the vessel with his greed and egotistical pride; and he was shaking his foot with anger and the satisfaction of force while on his back; but the ritual kettle was boiling over with the sacrificial blood of multitudes of humans and melting his sword. Poor and innocent soldiers from many nations, poor and innocent civilians from Afghanistan and Iraq; the blood of poor and innocent children, women and elders from all over the World was overflowing along his side. And his cabinet along with the republican and democratic courts, and the clergy were there by his side; standing on their knees inebriated with the wrath of his wine; as the American ceremonial vessel became a drowning river of blood. And there came on the screen the words written:
    Mr. President,
    I am sure you understand, the Crown of gold and the sword melting, symbolically represents the Wealth of the United States People and the Military Strength of the Nation; they are melting because of the unrighteous use of both, Money and Power. The Lord God has ask me to tell you in my own humble words, that adding fire to the fire is not going to extinguish it or bring Peace to the World. Instead, the Lord is extending you an opportunity to begin walking toward Peace in your own country and toward World Peace. A nation that is at WAR, cannot be leading the World to Peace, not even your own People. Consider what just happened in Chicago, you have WAR in the streets of this nation at your own front porch. I believe your words:
    “I will accept this award as a call to action”
    Now! Do Justice to your words and the people of America and the World.
    The reason for this email is to give Our Leader, and the People of the America and the World; a “New Message” that has come to me from above. The LORD said to me:
    “ Ivor Manuel, send My Words to the President, the People of America and the World; for My People shall know that I Live and that I have sent you unto them, I AM the Lord and there is none else, there is no God besides Me, I AM the Holy One of Israel, the only God; The God of Mercy, Love and Forgiveness, The Prince of Peace and Justice in Righteousness, Lord and Servant of all People, My new Name… and I the Lord your God give warnings to My People. Blessed are they that walk in action for Peace for they shall be my children. Thus Says the Lord Aleuzenev… Be at Peace”
    Ivor Manuel Prays for you and Peace for the World…

    After reading all this I finally realized the idea behind Obama spending. He is spending like someone who does not intend to pay the bill.

  • Bill

    Preparation, unity & love will be our greatest tools to survive this event.

  • wolfberg

    The time is almost up. The European Union is the last laboratory experiment of the NWO clique. The Euro crisis will reveal them the final data they need to put their plan into motion: the creation of a World Empire. All nation states must be destroyed so the NWO can take over. That is why there are crises everywhere. And the NWO guys have metitiously created disunity in all nations, in the US by dividing people into Dems and Reps, in Europe by importing immigrants and thus inciting native Europeans with immigrants. Divide and conquer. And while we think “left and right” matter, they laugh at us.

    There will come a time, when the crises seem to get better. People will spread the news in the media that we have the worst behind us. That is when you know, the end of freedom is nigh. The NWO has successfully eliminated all possible opposition, destroyed or ridiculed all possible idea behind which people might rally against the NWO, because NWO is the ultimate nihilism: power for the sake of power, and people are dryied and emptied of any faith, belief, hope, vision or ideal. The masses will beg for the Lords of the NWO to safe them. They will cheer and applaud it, when it comes.

  • Carolyn

    You should all sign up to read changes and public information from your governmental agencies. Yes, preparation began a long time ago and yes 2008 was just a glimpse of what will come and yes they are stockpiling amunization and technologies and tes if you read to see all of the amendments to your constitutional laws – activation and authority over FEMA camps and all under-the-radar changes that are made — especially when we are a nation at war (look it up Americans, it has always been the largest legal loophole for government control) — black and white — the structure is built/ready and was activated – now its just a matter of when the switch is hit – its a no brainer – and yes, for this planet – the disaster will be unlike any survivng documented human race has witnessed – so, everyone at this point should look internally and at your families and neighbors and figure out what they would believe in had they not been distracted by the conscious mind and derailment in survival and illusions of being at the top of their game in life by seeking foolish material goods while killing the commodiaties meeded to sustain the humanrace

  • … the information above is correct, and alludes to something troubling occurring now and yet to unfold on the horizon … explains what that scenario is. It’ll be tough slugging reading this information, … it will seem impossible, … but at least try to comprehend what the blog is sharing as it does explain how to deal with coming events.

    Thank you.

    • Winnie

      LOL. Herding the sheep, are we? By the way Jews don’t go in for all that Lucifer stuff. Just saying’

  • Its stupid to think that we are in such debt but the people on t.v keeping giving money to ppl who dont need it. They need to stop paying ppl on t.v and pay off those trillians.

    • I don’t think so….

      What’s a trillian? Is that like an alien? Or a trible? or….is it like a bunch of billians? or millians? I think they’re aliens…big bug like aliens called Trillians. Where are these people on T.V.? Can they give me money too? Cause…let me tell you I could use some…like oh good lord could you imagine if someone gave me a…TRILLION dollars?!?!

  • Chloe

    This sounds alarming, but doesn’t the US gov do preparatory measures like this all the time? And seriously, don’t penny @ss government officials like to freak out the public?

  • Our government is 16 trillion dollars in debt and still borrowing 40 cents for every dollar they spend. This can’t go on forever. Our government is try to dominate the world and I guess Obama will be the new leader of the new world order….here comes the mark of the beast…666

  • catfish prepper

    I have been preparing for an economic collapse now for a while… we are literally so far gone there is no savin us, the collapse is inevitable, it will happen. Nobody can say exactly when, but it will. Were does everyone think they will get 55 trillion dollars? Borrow it? Print it? Just think about, if you haven’t started preppin your already to late id start now! And everyone remember the future belongs to the ones who prepare for it today! Thanx for listenin.

  • Penelope

    Like a home/family planner, contingency plans are important for the what ifs of life. So long as they’re not doomsday calls for judgment and punishment upon unsuspecting public. Prepare for the worst, and hope for the best. If the economy is crashing, I think it would have by now. People like to cry wolf and fire in a crowded theatre to get everyone running madly to the exits. I see this now as a same scenario. I see a future where priorities will be rearranging, but the status quo is not going to disappear before our eyes. As long as the elite continue to mismanage the banks and government spending, they’ll muddle along, while the middle class continues to disappear, and we fall into the ever widening chasm of rich and poor. It’s always been that way though. I don’t see the economy as crashing, I really think that’s doomsday scenarios the public like to splash around to keep everybody on the edges of our seats while our rights and freedoms are gradually eroding and being replaced eventually by a centralized government. I do think the economy as society is highly unstable and volatile, which could catapult us into future world wars. That should be our foremost concern is staving off a mass holocaust the likes of which would make the Holocaust of WWII pale in comparison. Being a resource rich planet, our ability to govern ourselves is limited only by the lack of our own imagination and thought processes needed to survive. The new frontier is intellectual.

  • G

    Truth is we could go 100,000,000,000,000 trillion into debt and as long as income matches cost who cares? The money isn’t real anyway…it only represents goods and services. When bread was 5 cents minimum wage was 25 cents. Now bread is 2.00 and minimum wage is 10.00. Not rally a big difference. Yes, gas is driving up costs worldwide but it’s just being manipulated. Who cares about our debt if we are never going to repay it? It’s just numbers that have no meaning…just an illusion. It’s panic that tears societies apart, not money.

    Let me direct all you fair people to Revelation 6:5-6= The 3rd Horseman of the Apocalypse. (In case it hasn’t been mentioned…not reading 400 comments to see)

    5 When the Lamb broke the third seal, I heard the third living being say, “Come!” I looked up and saw a black horse, and its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice from among the four living beings say, “A loaf of wheat bread or three loaves of barley will cost a day’s pay.[b] And don’t waste[c] the olive oil and wine.”

    Economic ruin anyone?

    Yay! I can’t wait for mad max apocalyptic america. It will be good times. I’d hate to be a banker cause when the wood runs out we gotta burn something lol. We can hope all we want for the coming collapse but its still 20 years out before it gets bad enough to disolve this broken union . the boomer generation will use up every resource first. So prep but its not going to be for awhile. We haven’t even sold our forests to China yet. There is still assets the politicians can sell off so the flower children can have more free entitlements. Its ironic that the greatest generation parented the worst generation.
