Doom And Gloom

Have you noticed that most Americans seem to know far more about American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, Justin Bieber and their favorite sports teams than they do about world affairs?  Most Americans cannot even find Tunisia and Algeria on a map, and if you told them that food riots are happening in those nations right now most of them would not even care anyway.  We have become a very self-centered, self-involved and self-absorbed nation.  Quite a few people have accused this column of being obsessed with "doom and gloom", but the truth is that the world really is falling apart out there.  What are we supposed to do?  Are we all supposed to stick our heads in the sand and pretend that everything is going to be okay?  Should we all not try to warn others so that they can prepare for what is coming?  Until people understand that we are facing absolutely massive problems they are not going to be motivated to take significant action, and hopefully those of us that are proclaiming "doom and gloom" are doing a good enough job of describing what is really going on out there that some people are starting to wake up and actually make changes.

Most Americans may not care, but the food riots that are starting to erupt around the globe are actually very serious.

Do you remember what happened back in the summer of 2008?

That summer, the price of oil spiked to an all-time high of $147 a barrel and that caused a substantial increase in the price of food all over the globe.  Suddenly millions of poor people couldn't afford to feed themselves anymore and food riots erupted all over the world.

Well, here we are in 2011 and the price of oil hasn't even reached $100 a barrel, and yet the food riots are already beginning.

Violent food riots are being reported in Tunisia, in Algeria, in Chile and in Mozambique.

In Tunisia, the riots have been so intense that the President of Tunisia, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, has been forced to step down and flee for his life.

Yes, that is how serious things are getting already.

Unfortunately, it looks like the global food situation is only going to get even worse.

Australia is a major food producer and right now they are experiencing flooding of Biblical proportions.  In fact, it has been reported that at one point the flooding covered an area greater than France and Germany combined.

In Brazil, another major food producer, horrific flooding has killed more than 500 people so far.  This flooding is being called the "worst-ever natural disaster" in the history of Brazil.

Meanwhile, record cold temperatures and record snowfalls are playing havoc with winter crops all over the Northern Hemisphere.

But even before all of these weather disasters struck the price of food had been going up significantly.  The UN recently announced that the global price of food hit an all-time high during the month of December, and world leaders all over the globe are openly expressing concern about what 2011 is going to bring.

Sadly, the truth is that there has been a trend of rising food prices for quite some time. According to Forbes, corn is up 94% since June, soybeans are up 51% since June, and wheat is up 80% since last June.

As one of my readers recently pointed out to me, it usually takes about six months for the prices of agricultural futures to filter down into the supermarkets.  So the very high prices for agricultural commodities that we are seeing right now should really start to be felt around the globe by the middle of 2011.

In addition to everything else, reports continue to come in of thousands of birds and millions of fish suddenly dying all over the globe, and nobody seems to really know what is causing it.

Do you want some more doom and gloom?

*There are reports of "panic buying" of silver and other precious metals right now.

*Investors are bailing out of municipal bonds at an absolutely staggering rate.

*S&P and Moody's have both warned once again that the United States is in danger of having its credit rating slashed if it does not get government debt under control.

*U.S. housing prices have now fallen further during this economic downturn than they did during the Great Depression of the 1930s.

Meanwhile, America's economic infrastructure continues to be taken apart piece by piece.

The United States is losing more jobs to China.  In fact, the United States is losing more high technology "green jobs" to China.

Evergreen Solar, a company that manufactures solar panels, is closing their factory in Devon, Massachusetts and they are moving their production facilities to China.  This is going to result in the loss of 800 good American jobs.

The following is what the company had to say in a statement about the move....

"Solar manufacturers in China have received considerable government and financial support and, together with their low manufacturing costs, have become price leaders within the industry."

Is it any wonder that a recent survey found that 47 percent of Americans now believe that China is the world's leading economic power while only 31 percent still believe that the United States is the world's leading economic power?

As America continues to lose good jobs, millions of Americans find themselves simply unable to pay the bills.  In fact, at this point one out of every six Americans is now enrolled in at least one government-run anti-poverty program.

As things have fallen apart in the United States, many private citizens have tried to step forward and do what they can to help people, but now in many areas of the country the government is actually stepping in and shutting down these private avenues of assistance.

For example, in the city of Houston, Texas a couple named Bobby and Amanda Herring has been feeding homeless people for over a year.  They never left behind any trash and no trouble was ever caused.

But now the city of Houston is shutting them down.

Why?

Because they don't have a permit.

So will they be able to get a permit?  Well, it turns out that city officials are saying that this "Feed a Friend" effort most likely will be denied one.

Apparently the city "officials" believe that the homeless "are the most vulnerable to foodborne illness" and that therefore the warm meals that the Herrings were providing for them were potentially dangerous.

Can you believe this?

This is what happens when political correctness and bureaucracy get wildly out of control.

Now it is illegal to go out and feed homeless people?

What is American turning into?

As the economy continues to fall part, the iron grip of the government is likely only going to get tighter as it desperately tries to keep order.

But do we really need to be giving tickets to 6-year-olds?

Yes, you read that correctly.

According to one recent report, police in Texas have given "1,000 tickets to elementary school children in 10 school districts" over the past six years.

For more examples of how America is turning into a police state, please see my recent article entitled "Almost Everything Is A Crime In America Now: 14 Of The Most Ridiculous Things That Americans Are Being Arrested For".

America is rapidly becoming a very dark place.

The truth is that there is a reason why so many websites are now reporting so much "doom and gloom".  Things really are getting bad out there.

Sadly, most Americans have only known tremendous prosperity all of their lives, so they can't even conceive of what it would be like to go through difficult times.

Most Americans have been conditioned to believe that while we may have brief "recessions" once in a while, in the end our economy will always get better and the good times will continue to roll.

But the good news is that an increasing number of Americans are waking up and are trying to warn their family and friends about what is coming.

So do you believe that the food shortages and the food riots are going to get even worse throughout the rest of 2011?  Please feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts below....

    A true story of what’s going on around us…
    Given today’s global economic conditions, politician on both sides don’t give a rats ass about the people in this country. Both sides are spending billions on attack ads, so they can be the one to run this country into the ground. Have the nation’s problems gotten fixed yet? I mean, with both political parties SO concerned over the American public’s welfare, somebody should have solved at least ONE problem. Hasn’t even one problem been solved?

    If law and order should break down (hope for the best but prepare for the worst) we will be ready to respond to looters and roving gangs.

    What happened to Tunisia could trigger chaos elsewhere!
    A fruit seller who caused Revolution in Tunisia!
    Al Bouazizi was a poor 26-year old Tunisian who could not find a job after finishing college. He refused to join the “army of unemployed youth,” as it has become known in Tunisia, and instead started a small business as a street vendor, selling vegetables to support his family. It is a hard breaking story. Please follow the link for the entire story.

    The only thing – the ONLY thing that has prevented the U.S. from already becoming a police state, is the Constitution.

    The elite desperately want to tear it apart. They can’t do it overtly (that would be unconstitutional!), so they do it by stealth. Little by little, so the sheeple won’t get too alarmed. A little TSA search here, a little jaywalking offense there. Whip up an excuse to start a little war against a helpless country, because they need to be “free” and “liberated”.

    According to the Constitution, only Congress has the power to declare war. This was supposed to be a safeguard against the president getting too much power. But, the last time Congress declared war was in 1941!

    The Founding Fathers wanted a balance of power, between executive, legislative and judicial. They knew what could happen if one branch got a little too heavy handed with power. Unfortunately, their fears have come to pass. George W. Bush basically said, “9/11 is a national crisis! Terrorists! We must destroy them, and I’m in charge! I won’t bother asking Congress, because I know they feel the same as I do. Invade Afghanistan and Iraq!” And it was done.

    Wake up!!! Before the Constitution is taken to the paper shredder. If that ever happens, all is lost.

    Like a fire in your home things going to hell are a possibility and one plans accordingly. Most of the stuff a prudent person would have in event of an economic collapse are the same the government recommends for a disaster. The only difference is watching your finances which one should do regardless. We’re unwilling to move to some nowhere place but neither are we in a city. The years worth of food is out of the question but having enough to avoid the public for a couple of months and a functioning large garden offers benefits beyond disaster planning with increased quality. The Achiles Heel is health care especially if you have a cronic condition. Bringing a few chickens and some gold/silver coins for a $200,000 multible bypass is not much of an option.

  • The Baroness

    Keep up the good work! I am tired of trying to wake people up. My husband and I are only concerned with ourselves (and others who have seen the light). The collapse is coming and its going to be BAD.
    Instead of spending $500-$1000 on Atlanta Falcons tickets (yes we had friends that spent that last night for a football game) we took that money and bought more PM and supplies. Its called priorities.

    Natural Disaster in Australia, Brasil . . . .are the signs of time my friends. In the news, in Arizona, USA, people rushing to get guns to protect themselves and the numbers are staggering! Europe is in chaos . . . .American is in chaos, Middle East is in chaos. Those who know what is coming, are the ones can survive because only one third of the world will survive according to Bible!

    If you’ve ever read “The Great Gatsby”, there is a sentence that says, “The rich are different from you and me”. I believe it’s in the second chapter of the book – it’s been a while since I read it.

    Indeed, they are. Even F. Scott Fitzgerald knew this back in 1926.

    Rich people don’t clean their houses. They have servants for that. Most – NOT all, but most – care only about themselves and their friends. Those who do care about their fellow man/woman, are silenced or ostracized. Personas non grata. They get defeated in the next election (just look at those campaign funds evaporate!!) Vultures of a feather hang together.

    Wealthy elite bankers and their pals run this country, not Obama, or Congress, or the military (thank God!). Politicians don’t care about their constituents. They care about political action committees, special interest groups and their lobbies. That is who they work for, not We The People. Why on earth would a presidential candidate spend millions and millions of dollars, to get elected to a post that pays $400,000 a year?

    Until you realize that, nothing else makes sense. Once you do realize it, though…

    Obama’s hair is getting increasingly gray, just like every president who is in office for at least 2-3 years. Why? What’s the worry? What gives? He’s got a lovely wife and children, and lots of perks – he can pick up the phone and chat to world leaders whenever he wants to.

    Sure it’s a stressful job. Chances are your job is stressing you out too! (Reminder – have you checked your in-box lately?! Your company’s CEO just sent you a message.) That is, if you’re lucky enough to even have a job. The President can press a button and launch a war in 15 seconds. He lives in a giant White Castle (no, not the burger restaurant, but you’re close!) He’s in charge of the biggest superpower on earth. Riiiight???

    I know, I’m rambling. Need to watch some football like a good American consumer, and later pop in a DVD of a Justin Bieber concert. It’s the pinnacle of songwriting. Baby, baby, baby! (Repeat 4 times.) I miss Britney Spears. Oops, did she do it again?! Ha!!

    That undesciplined money management put many people in a poor position to weather any storm. We have people in our family that went through everything to find gold and silver to exchange for “money”. We heard about it ex post facto or we would have bought it ourselves. Their thought process produced this piece of logic at the Thanksgiving dinner table, “If people don’t have enough money the government should just print more”. What is frightening is we share DNA with these worshippers of the sphere.

    Whomever said Tatitlana (whatever the hell that dumb B’s name is) was being philosophical is also a dumbass. What she’s being….IS A NO-GOOD COWARD! Running from problems which we can overcome if we embrace the kind of courage being shown by Gov. CHRIS CHRISTIE of New Jersey. We must confront the challenges, enforce Constitutional RULES for LIMITED GOVT and tell people “tough shit” if they don’t like it.

    What happens in 10,000 years is IRRELEVANT. Hell, the planet may not be here by then.

    It’s what happens over the next 20 years which is relevant. Why? Because most of the people on the earth today (and posting in this forum we should hope) will be here in 20 years. We will be experiencing the suffering!

    This “dumb B” isn’t being philosophical, she’s being non-sensical.

    It’s been a while since I read this, so it’s solely by memory, and probably not accurate…

    Democracy – You have a cow. You buy a bull, and let them breed. Sell their offspring to your neighbors and friends. Everyone benefits.

    Communism – You have a cow. You’re not allowed to have a bull. The government takes your cow, and sells the milk to the people. You may go hungry, but you won’t go thirsty.

    Nazism – You have a cow. The government shoots it, and kills you for owning a cow.

    Totalitarism – You have a cow. You must worship it, because it provides all your needs.

    I currently live in Northern VA, right outside the nation’s capital, and in Loudoun County the richest county in the US. The economy is doing great here, very little foreclosures, stores and restaurants are prospering on every corner, and the unemployment rate is low. Its hard to believe this doom and gloom theme, when WE are living the American dream!! Are the people commenting from debt stricken states with high unemployment rate and massive foreclosures? Is this doom and gloom mentality just local?

    The only decrease I have notice, is the down-sizing of Americans moving in the area. It has been a large amount of Mid-East foreignors taking over the area and taking every professional job. Should we not be afraid of this take-over!! This is the doom and gloom in my particular region……..

    I just laugh at these gloom and doom forecasts because people want only certain kinds of apocalypses to happen which support their beliefs, and dismiss other people’s apocalypses as nonsense or superstition. Believer in the Austrian Apocalypse (hyperinflation), for example, dismiss global warming as Chicken Little stuff. Christians who believe in the “end times” dismiss the Islamic version, even though Jesus shows us as a Muslim and Muhammad’s helper in the latter. And believers in the Singularity AI Apocalypse dismiss the religious apocalypses as woo-woo.

    What if it turns out that humans will do what we do best, namely, just muddle through? We show some progress in doing that, as Matt Ridley points out in his book “The Rational Optimist,” p. 42:

    “. . . the price of wheat approximately trebled in 2006-8, just as it did in Europe in 1315-18. At the earlier date, Europe was less densely populated, farming was entirely organic and food miles were short. Yet in 2008, nobody ate a baby or pulled a corpse from a gibbet for food. Right up until the railways came, it was cheaper for people to turn into refugees than to pay the exorbitant cost of importing food into a hungry district. Interdependence spreads risk.”

    This is a Crisis By Design. It started with the dumbing down of America and the Bankers getting the Fed started in 1913. Then they passed the 16th amendment. Then the APA started to drug everyone as the new treatment for mental anguish with thorazine. Then the CIA got LSD pushed into society, they got us off the gold standard in 1971. LBJ got us into war to help the bankers make billions (war is all about money for the bankers) Psychiatry made up hundreds of disorders to drug America into a stupor and now the bankers wanna take out the dollar and collapse the american way of life. Morals have gone by the wayside due to the drug culture (if it feels good do it mnetality still is prevalent). so we have jersey shore as one of the most popular shows (disgusting).
    America is on its way out for living a life of excess and being sold a bill of goods to borrow borrow borrow, drugs drugs drugs.

    Excellent critique of the situation.

  • Lennie Pike

    Karen:

    No you should not worry about any doom and gloom coming to your neighborhood. 90% of the residents in your neighborhood owe their high standard of living to high government salaries, limitless government spending, and free money – part of which is provided at the expense of these people speaking of the doom and gloom, and the other part provided at the expense of people in other countries who are experiencing far greater doom and gloom and don’t even have a clue that they are indirectly supporting the high standard of living of the people in your neighborhood.

    The ones you hear speaking of doom and gloom are feeling the doom and gloom due to the actions of the people in your neighborhood who take orders from the most powerful people (worldly power only) in the world who live in N.Y.C. and London, and this doom and gloom is going to increase drastically in 2011 for these you hear speaking of this strange doom and gloom – it has been planned especially for them.

    But even so, you don’t have to worry that these you hear speaking of this doom and gloom are going to come after the ones in your neighborhood that cause the doom and gloom to forcefully put an end to it because they would prefer to support the people in your neighborhood over the only other available option due to their obedience to God and their love for the ones in your neighborhood. Their obedience to God is the reason the doom and gloom has been planned for them. Most of them will probably die from the doom and gloom and you will no longer have to worry of any possibility of them coming to your neighborhood – your neighborhood will be just fine for a long time.

    But the day will come when it will no longer be fine – and it will arrive all in an instant – and there will never again be seen a light burning there, and all of the ships captains at sea will see smoke rising from your neighborhood, and businessmen the world over will weep because the end will come to the generation of the great wealth they gained through the trading of every possible luxury with the Great Prostitute – and they will say – “that place is dead, you can believe that.”

    As far as the Middle Eastern immigrants taking over all the jobs of the Americans – we’ve already adjusted to that, what’s the big deal?

    10,000 is definitely a long term view. I am convinced that the issue is indeed a matter of one’s perspective, or worldview. And I am convinced that unless one has the correct perspective (and there is only one that is correct), one will not really understand what is happening. Take time for instance, does mankind really have an unlimited time on this globe? Can we really expect to be here in 10, 000 years even if we are well behaved? My worldview tells me no we will all be elsewhere and that will be a whole lot sooner than 10,000 years. If you are interested, there is a pretty niffy timeline that explains the worldview to which I, and many like me, subscribe at http://www.cynet.com/jesus/timeline/timeline.htm — check it out. Peace be with you as you journey through a very tough time in history. And may you be singing with us when it is all over, “When we’ve been there, 10,000 years, bright shining as the sun. We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise, than when we first begun.”

    Your articles remind me of the Plain Truth magazine printed by the Worldwide Church of God of a generation ago. Full of doom and gloom articles about how the world is going to hell in a hand basket. Unfortunately they were ahead of their time by about 40 years and people grew tired of the magazine when the stuff did not come to pass in the time line that the magazine predicted. Fortunately or unfortunately I think the day of SHTF might be upon us. Hopefully we can kick the can down the street for another forty years.

  • TimeTraveler

    This article is spot on! There is no time to waste and fret over if it’s going to happen. The time for preparedness is RIGHT NOW PEOPLE!! We are at a crossroads of human existence. The cycle of time and the ancient civilizations all prophesied this to come about, and it is here.

    The planetary changes that are upon us, the the solar activity that is coming, will put an end to society as we know it. If you don’t have food, water, and a way to barter for goods, you will not survive the coming events!

    The time for watching TV, and being brainwashed by the evil forces at the top of this holographic fiat monetary system are over. Their time is ending. There is no way to stop the impending collapse of the entire world economic system. It is over, and the governments of the world know it, they will not tell you this, but it is over.

    It is time to prepare for the dark times ahead, but to fear not what the darkness has in store, for if you believe in the love of the human heart, which controls the whole universe, then you will realize our time is nearing for a new age of existence, where money, politics, and religion will not interfere with the destiny that is ours.

    We are almost there, and they know this.They are the frightened ones, for the control they have over us is about to END! So follow your heart and believe in yourself, and the most wondrous journey awaits us!

    go right ahead and stock up on gold and silver……it will be hard to eat though. maybe some boiled down gold and rock stew sounds good to alot of people but not I. the 2 main things I have been stocking up on are ammo, and FOOD!!! If i have food I can get the gold or/and silver. Just a little side note for anyone who is a prepper(to be), ya might want to think about getting or making (like I did) a wood-burning stove. It will probably come in handy when TSHTF!!! Thanx!!

  • russell

    Food shortages are definetly on the way. At the minimum, prices will double in a year. The best invesment most can make right now is loading the house or apt up with everyday needs.

    There is no such thing as hoarding when the store shelves are full. But when the panic begins, overpurchasing is hoarding, which is a big moral no-no.

    Get ahead of the curve and buy now. At the very least you will probably double your money. At best it may save your and your families necks.

    It makes me sick to think that so many Americans call themselves patriot Americans and then they live for today only and not worry about what is coming down the road. I just want to shake each and every one of them and ask them if they really know what is going on right in front of their eyes. I guess one of these days when the idiots come out of the inner city and start breaking into their house they will finally get the message, although it could be too late for them then. I’ll close with this thought: Those who are in denial better give their hearts to God because the thugs will have their ass.

    Here’s the problem. You may be totally right but there is nothing we can do as individuals to do anything about the world. We are not going to reach some critical mass of knowledge and then take control of governing any differently. Just ain’t gonna happen..

    So what does that leave us? It’s every man for himself and you need to get yourself protected against the anarchy about to hit us. You need to prepare yourself for a major food shortage. You need to prepare yourself for no electricity. Everything you need to sustain you and your families life you need to be working on securing. Otherwise you are just along for the ride until you don’t have food and you die. Period.

    Only those with commen sense will see this coming today, and any with a pure conscience yet are the ones to know by the spirit of God what to do to help others with wisdom.
    EXSPECT THE WORSE AND BELEIVE FOR THE BEST.
    Face reality and exspect the worst, work for the best. Get some seeds and food set asside. Exspecting to harvest your own seeds out of your own garden.
    The scriptures say give and it will be given to you. Jesus warns of a shaking that will be greater than any previous, national shakings, weather shakings, heavenly shakings, earthquakes, tornatoes, valcanoes, floodings,
    Only if you seek God and His terms will a purpose be set for you to understand and how to live in this dire time we have entered. Eternaity is before everyone and backslidden christains need to get back with the Lord, on the road where they got off. You are forgiven if you confess your fault to Jesus. Any unsaved and know they need to be save, ask Jesus to save you, repent of your sinfulness and ask for a new life in Christ. Life in these days happens to be at the time of the tribulation, get ready as one can, just knowing this is a great part of being ready , now to face it and adjust the best you can, letting God do the rest, rest in God, know jesus. Pastor Craig Nelson.

      This is nothing new. It’s happened before and it will happen again. No matter who’s in “charge”.

  • The Beast

    The old powers will fade away, new ones will emerge. But the question remains: will the future generations repeat the mistakes made by their seniors?

    • narg

      Hint: yes they will. But, things will still go on and on and on and on. Boring ain’t it?

    There’s no place called “Devon, Massachusetts.” I’m presuming this company leased space on land that used to be part of the Fort Devens Army base, probably with a subsidy from the People’s Republic of Taxachusetts to get them in there in the first place to boot. A subsidy I’m guessing is either running out or not attractive enough. Fort Devens is mostly in Ayer, FWIW, so I’m presuming that’s technically where the manufacturing space is/was.

    BTW, is this a kraut company, or subsidiary of one? (The English/Deutsch choice on the website makes me think “yes.”)If so, the irony abounds, given that Fort Devens was one of the main processing stations for US draftees during World War II in New England. It was where my Dad first reported in 1944, if memory serves, though he did his basic in the South. Also where my (god rest his soul) father-in-law shipped out to Korea. But to quote the philosopher Steely Dan “Those days are gone forever, over a long time ago, oh yeah”.

    And what a relief. Who needs this pesky manufacturing stuff anyways? This means Ayer can get back to its primary calling as a home for fast-food joints, Indo-Pak convenience stores and more liquor stores and check cashing places than you’d ever think a town that size could support.

    And maybe they can stick a plaque somewhere for all the American boys whose last contact w/US soil was ol’ Fort Devens? Not that anyone will bother reading it. Might make ‘em late to get home to watch Dancing With the Stars or something.

    I know for sure it will get even worse than it is now. This is simply the tip of the iceberg. These are birth pains just as Jesus foretold as the signs of His second coming. It is going to get ugly like we never seen ugly, and the only way to escape it is if we die before His return. If these Babylonian American christians think they are going to be secretly raptured up and escape the tribulations, they better rethink and do more studying in the owners manual (AKA) The BIBLE. They are not getting out that easily. So buckle your seat belts everyone, this world will come to an end like it or not. If you doubt these words I simply say study it for yourselves and please do not take my word for it.

    Many people believe that what is happening to our country is the result of deliberate criminal activity within our government. In order to solve a crime, law enforcement tries to establish the “means, motive, and opportunity” of the perpetrators of the crime. “Doom and Gloom” writers have lots of material to write about when it comes to “means & opportunity” when describing the present dire consequences to our country. There is much speculation as to the motives of our politicians for creating this sorry state of affairs in our country. Some believe that it is just a bunch of inept micromanaging control freaks that are attempting to run our country. Others insist that this is only a temporary “phase” in the life of our country. Still others believe that this is a long-term plot by socialist leaning politicians to do away with our Constitution in order to convert our country into a socialist paradise. The major obstacle to all of these ideas is the fact that most of the major policies being forced upon us are clearly not sustainable. The socialists and political control-freaks would be insane to support policies that would leave them with a ruined economy even if they won their goals of absolute power over our country. These people are, in many respects, naive in the idea that they can make a flawed system work that has always failed in all of history. However, they are not insane or totally lacking in talent. Nevertheless, they are acting as if there is no tomorrow and there will be “no consequences” to themselves for printing money like mad and ruining our economy. So, what is their motive for doing what they are doing? What do they know that we don’t that is motivating them to enact these apparently suicidal policies?

    “When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” (Sherlock Holmes)

    Here is my “Unified Conspiracy Theory” that explains why the world’s leaders are acting in a manner that appears to lead us to absolute failure:

    To GRODOY:
    I happen to believe in the Pre tribulation rapture. It is really sad that you talk about Jesus and then insult other believers in the same paragraph is not how A believer should act. And is baffling to me. We as believers are supposed to be Meek. Whether you believe in the Pre trib rature or not holds no merit. The fact of the matter is if you believe in Jesus Christ you should not fear these things. Yes it is a good idea to prepare yourself but there should be no fear in your heart since this is all foretold by Almighty God.

    Did you know 239 million americans live paycheck to paycheck, most don’t even give a thought of WHERE their food comes from, most is emported, south korea just slaughtered over a million animals because of diease, the honeybee and bumblebee are almost gone. Birds and fish are dieing by the thousands, animal feed is beyond record high, wheat is going even higher, this weather has destroyed crops and last years crops, you are living on last years crops, this year is far worse. People need to wake-up and smell the truth, it will get much worse, go to NASA WEB AND LOOK-UP SOLAR STORMS, where due for one anytime!!!

  • karen

    Hello Alice!! I hope you get this, I was once like you, I could not believe what was going on, that was six years ago, I too am a women 58 years old and if I can do this so can you. And I do this ALONE, but I farm, garden and work, I want to help my family and others when the time comes, it’s FUN to garden and get the hands in the soil. But you need to start now get out of the city, get a shack if you have to, who cares it is just a state of mind. I lve in a trailer, but it is home, and I love it raise some chickens, learn to can and preserve food, do it yourself, there are all kinds of resources on the web, get open-pollinated seed, by seed potato, the farm outlets or feed stores have them go by the old farmers almanac on the times to grow you garden, but Please start NOW you don’t have lots of time, you can do this.

  • Louise in MO

    I believe the “doom and gloom” reporting is appropriate and justified for what is coming. More people are aware than what some readers may think.

    I know prices of food have gone up substantially in the past six months. It only requires a little knowledge to compare what you paid last week, last month etc. to know the facts. It is prudent to buy extra supplies, food, water while you can.

    Talk to your family and friends and leave it up to them to believe or not believe. In the future you will feel no guilt at keepingthe warning to yourself.

    I’m incredibly sad at what is to come, especially for my grandchildren. I buy food for them, also. Think of others whom you can help.

    Thanks to the writer/writers of this site for putting the proof/statistics, etc. along with their views online. You are appreciated by most of your readers.

  • Robert

    It won’t matter how much food, water, ammunition, etc. you stock up on…when the seabed of the gulf of mexico collapses from the BP disaster…agriculture will be dead around the world. We will fall into an ice age that will eliminate 90% or more of the population. This is the REAL threat to humanity. Even the world governments will suffer greatly!! Knowing that not even the ELITE will escape this disaster might give us a little peace of mind.

  • Blammo

    Well. I got a little leaf cutter ant problem in my bean field. It’s 348 AM. I reckon I’ll grab a cup of homegrown coffee,saddle the horse and go take care of those ants.
    On the way back I’ll stop by the barn and pick up 6 quarts of Jersey milk, run by garden #3 and pick a batch of spinach, and get wifey to make some cheese for tonights lasagna. Then I have to feed the hogs, chickens, rabbits and tilapia. Y’all have fun and say hi to Oprah.
    Pura Vida.

  • Toni

    If you have the land to grow some of your food. You better be doing it this season. Not only because of prices going up, but the fact you may not be able to find basic food on the shelves. The prices are already showing signs of disaster.

    The SCOTUS has made-it-up that corporations are individuals and have a right to contribute to political campaigns. Why is it so difficult to track who “owns” these corporations. If a corporation is owned by a foreign entity, should they still have the right to support our politicians? Before we can fix anything, we need to know where the big money is coming from and put a stop to it. Only Americans should participate in the fate of Americans. We need to find out who is really controlling our politicans/Congress/America. Only then will be be able to do what is best for the citizens of this country. Also, every local, state and federal entity, that our taxes support, should publish their budgets. Let the taxpayers decide what waste needs to be cut — that way, the cuts won’t be on our backs 100% of the time.

    Peak oil……… need I say more?

    The economy, gold/silver, republicans, democrats, obamacare, declining home prices, unemployment, etc… are the mere side effects. Bottom line is we’re in Iraq for a reason, and it’s oil. The world is figuring out there isn’t enough to go around, and since the worlds economies were built upon it, they are all collapsing. Haven’t you noticed this problem isnt just Americas problem it is a world problem.

    Hello everyone. I am accused of being a “naysayer” because we are facing brutal reality. My husband says I am nothing but “gloom and doom.” Sadly, most everyone I know is not paying attention to what is happening in our world. Almost everyone I know is worried about “American Idol, Fantasy Football, Sports of every kind, and the politicians.” Mention one world of the chaos we are in, and you get that blank look. What is wrong with the American’s minds? Are they in a worldly stupor, or plain just don’t care? I see folks in the super markets, nonchalantly pushing their carts around, and acting as if nothing is amiss in the world around them. I want to sound the “BUGLE” loud and strong, to wake them up. I see folks walking around with plastic faces. There is no emotion showing on their countenance’s. When the “Feds” come through their doors like gangbusters, then they will awake and see, that things really are “very” bad in their world. America is no longer “land of the free.” We have become a “Police State.” The majority populace has not realized this, yet. We need to stay close to God, He is our “Shield and Buckler.” He will come to take His people home with Him. Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

    It just the beginning of sorrow. Earth dwellers are already at the awesome 11th hour rewards but the church age agents are not helping matters in telling the people the correct message in proper good sense of judgment.The year of plenty is over and the year of famine is here . Applied the knowledge of Joseph to understand what is at steak.

  • http://www.clless.com janeyquiel

    I agree with your assumption.

  • Ryan Heinzman

    It is true, people would rather watch american idol than learn. my friend asked me why i didnt like obama. a lot of people ask me that. i spew out all the things they have done with our economy, than they just call me a negative person. what’s so negative about doing research and knowing what is going on? not just that, but what our country was founded on is being ripped apart. but oh no, dont worry about it people who call me negative. keep talking about these reality shows and spend your day googling prince harry and celebrities. i think the day things collapse for real is when people might wake up more. on a bright note for them, the government said jobs are looking better :) NOT!

    The Wisdom of Preparing / The Foolishness of Delay
    Proverbs 22:3 (King James Version)
    3:A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.
    Genesis 41:48-54 (King James Version)
    48:And he gathered up all the food of the seven years, which were in the land of Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities: the food of the field, which was round about every city, laid he up in the same.
    49:And Joseph gathered corn as the sand of the sea, very much, until he left numbering; for it was without number.
    50:And unto Joseph were born two sons before the years of famine came, which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bare unto him.
    51:And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For God, said he, hath made me forget all my toil, and all my father’s house.
    52:And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.
    53:And the seven years of plenteousness, that was in the land of Egypt, were ended.
    54:And the seven years of dearth began to come, according as Joseph had said: and the dearth was in all lands; but in all the land of Egypt there was bread.
    Matthew 25:2-9 (King James Version)
    2:And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
    3:They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
    4:But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
    5:While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
    6:And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
    7:Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
    8:And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
    9:But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

    Unfortunately, as I watch the panic on tv tonight about a gov’t shut down it is very apparent that the majority of these people have no idea of what is coming. I thought about calling in on Washington tonight to give my opinion and then thought better of it. Our gov’t is bankrupt, and the credit card is about maxed out. The trigger will certainly occur within the next 24 months, 36 if the govt is lucky. My guess is that the system will become overwhelmed and we will be the only buyers of our treasuries.

    My brother in law believes he is safe with his navy pension. All the social security recipients, medicare, etc. When an economy fails, hyper inflation persists. Sure, they may still get their 1500.00 monthly checks, but it will be useless against thousand dollar weekly grocery bills.

    I think the gov’t needs to get out of the way and let the collapse get started. It is coming anyways. The sooner it starts, the sooner, the new systems can take over. When assets collapse to dirt, the investors go broke, but new investors buy the dirt and start over. We need to get started. The longer we wait, the longer we will be in the greatest inflationary depression the world has ever seen.

    Collect your gold / silver / by seeds and hang on tight.

    IF you are to survive, it will be up to you. Do not pray for divine intervention or gov’t help. It won’t be coming.
