Inflation? Only If You Look At Food, Water, Gas, Electricity And Everything Else

Wheelbarrow of MoneyHave you noticed that prices are going up rapidly?  If so, you are certainly not alone.  But Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen, the Obama administration and the mainstream media would have us believe that inflation is completely under control and exactly where it should be.  Perhaps if the highly manipulated numbers that they quote us were real, everything would be fine.  But of course the way that the inflation rate is calculated has been changed more than 20 times since the 1970s, and at this point it bears so little relation to reality that it is essentially meaningless.  Anyone that has to regularly pay for food, water, gas, electricity or anything else knows that inflation is too high.  In fact, if inflation was calculated the same way that it was back in 1980, the inflation rate would be close to 10 percent right now.

But you would never know that listening to Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen.  In the video posted below, you can listen to her telling the media that there is absolutely nothing to be concerned about…

And it is really hard to get too upset with Janet Yellen.

After all, she reminds many people of a sweet little grandmother.

But the reality of the matter is that she is simply not telling us the truth.  Everywhere we look, prices are aggressively moving higher.

Just the other day, the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that the price index for meat, poultry, fish, and eggs has just soared to a new all-time high.

This is something that I have repeatedly warned would happen.  Just check out this article and this article.

And it isn’t just meat prices that are going up.  One of the largest coffee producers in the entire world just announced that it is going to be raising coffee prices by 9 percent

It took the Fed long enough but finally even it succumbed to the reality of surging food prices when, as we reported previously, it hiked cafeteria prices at ground zero: the cafeteria of the Chicago Fed, stating that “prices continue to rise between 3% and 33%.” So with input costs rising across the board not just for the Fed, but certainly for food manufacturers everywhere, it was only a matter of time before the latter also threw in the towel and followed in the Fed’s footsteps. Which is what happened earlier today when J.M. Smucker Co. said it raised the prices on most of its coffee products by an average of 9% to reflect higher green-coffee costs.

Not that coffee isn’t expensive enough already.  It absolutely stuns me that some people are willing to pay 3 dollars for a cup of coffee.

I still remember the days when you could get a cup of coffee for 25 cents.

Also, I can’t get over how expensive groceries are becoming these days.  Earlier this month I took my wife over to the grocery store to do some shopping.  We are really ramping up our food storage this summer, and so we grabbed as much stuff on sale as we could find.  When we got our cart to the register, I was expecting the bill to be large, but I didn’t expect it to be over 300 dollars.

And remember, this was just for a single shopping cart and we had consciously tried to grab things that were significantly reduced from regular price.

I almost felt like asking the cashier which organ I should donate to pay the bill.

Sadly, this is just the beginning.  Food prices are eventually going to go much, much higher than this.

Also, you should get ready to pay substantially more for water as well.

According to CNBC, one recent report warned that “your water bill will likely increase” in the coming months…

U.S. water utilities face a critical economic squeeze, according to a new report—and that will likely mean higher prices at the water tap for consumers.

A survey by water-engineering firm Black & Veatch of 368 water utility companies across the country shows that 66 percent of them are not generating enough revenue to cover their costs.

To make up for the financial shortfall, prices for water are heading upward, said Michael Orth, one of the co-authors of the report and senior vice president at Black & Veatch.

“People will have to pay more for water to make up the falling revenues,” he said. “And that’s likely to be more than the rate of inflation.”

Of even greater concern is what is happening to gas prices.

According to Bloomberg, the price of gasoline hasn’t been this high at this time of the year for six years…

Gasoline in the U.S. climbed this week, boosted by a surge in oil, and is expected to reach the highest level for this time of year since 2008.

The pump price averaged $3.686 a gallon yesterday, up 1.2 cents from a week earlier, data posted on the Energy Information Administration’s website late yesterday show. Oil, which accounts for two-thirds of the retail price of gasoline, gained $2.49 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange in the same period and $4.88 in the month ended yesterday.

The jump in crude, driven by concern that the crisis in Iraq will disrupt supplies, may boost pump prices by 10 cents a gallon at a time when they normally drop, according to forecasts including one from the EIA.

And the conflicts in Iraq, Ukraine and elsewhere could potentially send gas prices screaming far higher.

In fact, T. Boone Pickens recently told CNBC that if Baghdad falls to ISIS that the price of a barrel of oil could potentially hit $200.

Of course the big oil companies are not exactly complaining about this.  This week energy stocks are hitting record highs, and further escalation of the conflict in Iraq will probably send them even higher.

Meanwhile, a “bipartisan Senate proposal” (that means both Democrats and Republicans) would raise the gas tax by 12 cents a gallon over the next two years.

Our politicians have such good timing, don’t they?

Ugh.

And our electricity rates are going up too.  The electricity price index just set a brand new record high and there are no signs of relief on the horizon…

The electricity price index and the average price for a kilowatthour (KWH) of electricity both hit records for May, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The average price for a KWH hit 13.6 cents during the month, up about 3.8 percent from 13.1 cents in May 2013.

The seasonally adjusted electricity price index rose from 201.431 in May 2013 to 208.655 in May 2014—an increase of about 3.6 percent.

If our paychecks were increasing at the same rate as inflation, perhaps most families would be able to weather all of this.

Unfortunately, that is not the case at all.

As I wrote about recently, median household income in the U.S. is now about 7 percent lower than it was in the year 2000 after adjusting for inflation.

And if realistic inflation numbers were used instead of the government-manipulated ones, it would look a lot worse than that.

Inflation is a hidden tax that all of us pay, and it is systematically eviscerating the middle class.

So what are prices like in your neck of the woods?

Is your family feeling the pain of inflation?

        The Fed has been making sure that the banks have enough money to cover our deposit and our 401K can only go up. You need to follow what the Fed wants all American to do is to invest all your money to protect yourself from inflation.

  • K

    Is there real inflation? Tell me something that has not gone up. What I am noticing is long term storage foods, are up by about a third recently. Now of course with food up, that is to be expected. But this time there was no lag. It is keeping pace with the grocery store prices. That would suggest to me, that even people buying in massive quantities, are not getting much of a price break. Hope most of you are ready. Soon, few will be able to afford to get ready.

      The Pagan NWO fear that we will be independent of them, so there is manufactured inflaton and manufactured crises as they desperately try to keep us in bondage to them, but they are weak and we can beat them to endure.

      These sick demented entities are cowards and instead of meeting us head on, they are determined to use economics, laws and manipulations to kill us off. I have read so many people on other sites praising their intelligence, when they are merely well organised – their intelligence is clearly lacking. I mean look at obama and the banksters behind him – they are not too bright, just prepared.

      People need to get good with God, prep and not cede any further rights or yield to a cashless economy, which is their end goal of enslaving us. They will not kill/enslave us with wars, though we will see these, but our ultimate demise will come through such economic manipulations, hence the need to grow one’s own food and protect yourselves. Thus, this removes the need for a government (obviously, they don’t want people becoming independent and recognise they don’t need these jokers).

        Oil companies are making under 5 cents a gallon in profit for all the work. If you look at how many employees work for oil companies and divide the total profits by each employee you will be amazed that it is less than $1000 profit per employee per year… which is profit that goes to those who lend the company money through stock.
        However,
        The federal government is taking 55 cents for nothing and now they are about to pass 12 more cents a gallon tax. You must really be gunning for your president and senators, huh? Maybe you ought to have a conversation with the SS about it. They will be knocking on your door.

    Most of the 99% know that inflation has been at work because they actually make purchases and have a budget unlike the1% who use their corp cards without regard to anything close to a budget.

  • grumpyhillbilly

    Fortunately I have a large garden, and can most of my vegetables. I do buy weekly dairy products and meat. When you buy basically the same perishables each week, you get an idea how much the prices are rising. I would say in since January my same old grocery cart is costing me about twenty five dollars more.

    • Granny W

      You are lucky to have a garden. Mine was planted late here in So. MN because it was wet and cold/now it is drowned out because of many inches of rain in the past couple weeks. Having food you raise in a garden is not guaranteed.

      • Orange Jean

        Good reminder Granny… I rent a small house on a large farm and in theory can dig up as big a garden as I want, but am constrained by my health (severe arthritis and back problems)… so I can only do some limited gardening in large pots.

        The past few years though I’ve noticed my seedlings are not germinating well and also when I get good plant growth I still may not get many veggies. I do use a good mix of organic fertilizers and refresh my soil every few years… what used to work well, but isn’t doing the trick now for reasons I’ve not figured out.

        IF I had to rely on my garden 100%, I’d be starving!

  • djc

    People are just beginning to wake up over how they’ve been dispossessed by the government in cahoots with the Fed. This will all end very, very badly and I fear for the future of the country.

    I believe George Bush or Obama’s excellent health is likely to be a bad thing for them because if they are still alive when collapse comes THEY will be blamed—and there will be no where to hide. Of course this is somewhat unfair as really bad decisions have been made all the way back to Johnson but W and Obama will be the ones blamed.

  • http://www.mindbodygreen.com Kim

    It is so bad. I just got back from Europe (about a month ago) and I went shopping for groceries in the Netherlands and paid close to a hundred dollars equivalent for one bag of groceries. I was in Zürich as well and the prices are even higher there. I don’t know how regular folks make it. I did notice people reuse and recycle everything, even food.

    Back home, gas prices along interstate 5 from Portland to LA are well above $4.50. The most I paid was $4.85 in Santa Clarita. I figure by July prices will be well above $5.00.

    • jox

      Those are very expensive countries. You should come to Spain or Portugal.

    • Priszilla

      Just came home from shopping. For a backpack of groceries I paid less than £20. But that was mostly junk food for the weekend – cakes and wine.

      When I buy more veggies it’s usually much less.

    democrats love inflation, it kills the middle class

  • Rodster

    Here in SW Florida, food prices continue to spiral upwards. A pound of boneless chicken is not close to $6. Earlier this year it was $5. A couple of years ago it was $4.

    Packaged store brand ham just a couple of months ago was $4.99, today it’s $6.49 and to put in perspective just a couple of years ago it was $3.50.

    Everything in the store is going up, some gradually, some not so gradual. Fortunately in my area the Supermarket chain has killer B1G1 every week. So I take advantage of that. Fruits and vegetables are also increasing. A small size seedless watermelon which used to cost $3.99 is now $5.99

    It’s a FACT. People start to riot and civil unrest begins when 40% of one’s weekly salary goes towards food. This is what has triggered many riots and civil unrest around the world.

    No wonder the evil IMF is calling for an increase in the minimum wage. Even they are admitting their Ponzi Scheme is unraveling.

    • Hammerstrike

      5 to 6, really? That is a 20% increase in just 6 months.
      Another 25% over the previous few years.

      If prices starts Rising faster and faster, you know there is going to be another 2008 within 2 years.

      You have so much land and are unable to grow enough food to keep the prices down?

      Let me guess, it’s Obamas fault.

      • Rodster

        Maybe you haven’t noticed the droughts affecting the Western United States. In some places it’s against the law to grow your own food.

        Do I blame Obama? No, Obama is just a minnow in the overall picture. I blame the Central Banks which include the IMF, World Bank, Bank for International settlements for starters. Central banking and central planning with an infinite growth economic model is at the root of the problem.

            The federal government is making small farms illegal. All food must be inspected by a official from the USDA now. You can grow food for yourself in most cases, but if you sell it or even try to give it away the government wants you to pay to have it inspected.I live in Montana, tons of land but a very short growing season. Still snowing here in June, and winter starts around October yet we still sell our wheat to the rest of the world. We keep everyone else food prices down in the world, yet our prices go up. Its a lot like our Pharmacy prices, we develop the drugs, sell them cheap to idiots overseas, then we pay to make up the difference (your welcome). Eventually we will all get tired of sending our crops to other nations across the globe and you can all die of starvation, and a lack of life saving medicines as well.

          • Priszilla

            OK, but that’s different.

            You are allowed to poison yourself but if you want to sell your product you need to make sure it complies with safety rules.

            I believe the driver behind those government rules are those corporations who own the government and don’t want to see competition on the market.
            Of those you have more in capitalism than in socialism.

            And in so-called communist countries the government only cares about not being overthrown and lets you do anything else.

            In China,as long as you don’t poison anyone you are free to do what you want.

            Sell food, cut someone’s hair, whatever. The exception is when you are a foreigner and produce something. Then you are only allowed to export these goods, that means you need to sell your goods to a state-owned trading company which is allowed to export goods.

            And since the RMB is not fully convertible yet, you are only allowed a certain percentage of your RMBs to exchange for foreign currencies. And you can only export that foreign currency after having paid all taxes.

            Pretty easy rules to follow.

          Well, of course there is a drought, when you work against nature.

          Maybe you shouldn’t burn down so many trees? Maybe you should use more compost to grow the soil and less chemical fertilizer?
          Maybe weeds and hedges have a function to keep moisture in the area?

          Maybe a city in the desert using the scarce water isn’t such a good idea, even if gambling is allowed there?

          Whenever humans are involved any action will take some time to show any effects.

          • anonymous1

            “Maybe you should use more compost….and less chemical.”
            There are plenty of Americans that want organic foods and want GMO foods labeled so that people can choose if they want GMO foods or not. The problem in America is the same problem the entire world has….wealth always wins. Since the wealthy make the rules, make loopholes in those rules for themselves, and buy the people that are supposed to be the gatekeepers, GMOs and chemicals will always be used. Just look at what is happening to the farmers in India; it is what was done to American farmers.
            What shocks me is that people fail to realize that what has been to other human beings by the wealthy and powerful will eventually be done to them too. Unless the 99% stand together, the 1% will destroy all of us through GMOs, chemicals, sending our children to the wealthy’s wars, etc.

          I think you better check your facts Rodster. The last time I checked there was a law called The Right To Farm Act. If you find different let me know. There would be mass killing if they told the people they couldn’t grow food on there own property.

      • anonymous1

        The game is rigged.
        America can grow the food just fine. Big agriculture has put many small farmers out of business. Some families have had to sell farms that have been in the family for multiple generations just to pay the property taxes. Some farmers are tormented by the government because their pigs have hair, and other ridiculous things that the government comes up with.

        • Roger Smith

          Don’t forget the multi-pronged attack on farmers via regulations: ie, not letting their kids work the farm any more without being in violation of multiple new labor regulations….or the onerous “Death Tax” that pretty much wipes out small farms upon the death of the previous generation. These are not accidents. These are planned tactics by big-Ag, the Banks and the Elite who rule this world. Rule #1 Keep as many of the peasants dependent on the system that THEY control.

        Has been true since late 40’s.

      • Kristen Marie Embler

        When you are being pushed/pulled into the “college is the only way” propaganda, cost will continually rise due to high levels of demand. At one time, college was mostly for personal enrichment cherished by the wealthy. Once the drastic changes after the WW2 era came to be, there was a push for more education because the lower and middle classes wanted a better shot at moving up in society. High school became mandatory, college all the more desirable. We made loans were readily made to just about anyone, enabling anyone who could sign their name on the dotted line to go. Get a degree, get into the workforce. While this sounded like a good plan in the beginning, it wasn’t much so later on. Once colleges saw the flood of people standing at their gates, they were more and happy to raise tuition because government granted loans were a guarantee. Upon seeing the increasing number of college graduates, employers raised the education level required for an increasing number of positions. While this is understandable for certain jobs, it is not for others where a high school graduate originally held that position. This is all thanks to the deliberate dumbing down of grades K-12. Since high schools all around the nation fail to provide an exceptional education for students due to acts like “No Child Left Behind” being implemented, college enrollment has increased to fill in what should have mostly been taught in high school(namely, the general education classes.)
        Aside from the lucrative careers where advanced education is needed, it’s now mostly just another way to weed people out. You’re seeing some of the most basic jobs requiring a four-year degree that pay the bare minimum due to so many people having a degree. That, in effect, is keeping people under the fist of these banksters. The obvious answer to get away from all these lower end jobs is more education. Grad schools are receiving more and more applicants than ever before because the Bachelor’s is no longer what it once was. The Master’s is what is in demand. Are these people better off obtaining a higher degree? Some, not all. Colleges tie in with the banks. The colleges advertise the education credentials needed, the banks provide the most commonly obtained method of getting into school: loans. With loans at the ready, 80% of those go to college right after high school. Some go onto graduate, some don’t.
        This is pretty much it how it is in society today: either go along with the banking cartel’s system and bury yourself into debt to get a good job, or refuse and get left in the dust with not many options left to you, aside from the trades. If you went for a career in demand, things can turn out completely fine for you as loans go considering you have a better shot at paying them off quicker. Yet, these highly sought out professions are not always as safe as we make them out to be. NAFTA along with it’s sibling bills pose a huge threat to many professions, even those who were originally thought to be immune to such things. It doesn’t matter if you are the best of the best at your engineering firm, if a company can find a foreigner worker who will work for less, you may find yourself with a pink slip in the near future.

      I tell kids to get a trade these days – trade work can’t be outsourced. Even doctors are being outsourced as Americans without health insurance go to foreign lands for surgeries… Trade workers also have a greater chance of working for themselves – most folks I know of in Corporate America hate their jobs anyway. The companies treat them like cattle. Even folks who had jobs in companies who loved their companies now hate them. Hard to be dedicated to a company that treats you like garbage…

      Keep in mind also that small farms and sustainable communities are being raided by SWAT teams, raw milk producers are being jailed, ditto anyone who tries to store rainwater, or grow a garden in their front yard instead of useless grass. They don’t want you to be able to afford food, and they don’t want you growing it either, or even providing yourself water. No chickens or goats in the city allowed… and thousands of ‘codes’ make sure you can’t build your own house without spending a fortune on architects, licensed electricians, and permit after permit after permit. God forbid you should want a 300 SF cob or straw built house, (safer in EQs and strong winds than a McMansion, but harder to tax heavily) off grid. See where this is going? Still feel like waving your flag and declaring how ‘free’ we all are? Compared to what, I might ask.

            People always wondered how people can live in China or the Eastern Bloc.

            Reading what you have in America –
            – forbidden to use rain water;
            – forbidden to sell the food your grow;
            – forbidden to grow your own food;
            – forbidden to feed the poor;
            – forbidden to dry clothes outside (google it and you will find it);

            China and the Eastern Bloc were paradise.

            Oh yes, you can go to the capital and shout: “The American president is an idiot” and nothing happens.

            But so could we. LOL

            The really interesting thing is: you can demonstrate and protest as much as you want – and nothing happens.
            Oh, maybe the police will remove you by force from the park after the mayor decided it is illegal to gather there.

        Don’t you just hate it when companies obscure truth by using the old “For your convenience” B.S. Not long ago, I was at Walmart looking to buy an MP3 player. Naturally, it was locked in a display case which had a sign, “For your convenience, please contact a sales associate”. Really? How is that convenient? Now I have to try to hunt down someone who can unlock the display case. I would prefer honesty. “Due to the levels of shoplifting by members of Obama’s Free Shit Army, we have no choice but to lock up MP3 players”.

    think inflation bad now,give it a month ,without help I give Baghdad 2-3 weeks tops,once u see Iraq military fleeing south abandoning the city,it’ll send oil prices straight up.gas could hit $5-6 a gallon then the inflation party really kicks into high gear

  • Bill

    Some July 90 degree heat added to the rising prices for nearly everything could result in some street activity that this country hasn’t seen for sometime. Perhaps that is why “UN” equipment is now on the move in our homeland. Did you ever think you would see the day America would have UN forces on its streets?

    • kfilly

      I think they will post UN vehicles here for awhile before the collapse so that sheep get used to seeing them and become complacent. The people in that vehicle that were friendly months before would never hurt me right.

  • Syrin

    Precious metals set to soar. Gold up $40 today alone, silver up $1. We’ll see if JP Morgan smashes it back down like it has every time it’s eclipsed $1300/ounce, but this is the exact reason why you invest in precious metals. That and to not have your money in the bank. Does everyone here understand that once you put money in the bank, that by LAW it belongs to the BANK and is no longer YOURS? Furthermore, they have made it VERY difficult to get money out of the bank once it goes in, and FACTA goes into effect July 1st which make things even worse.

    • Guest

      It was very encouraging to see the significant move up in gold and silver today. I hope it continues. Precious metals are my only hedge against inflation.

      • alan

        They will paper over it again. Then they will announce finding oil on the moon and it will go back down.

    I’m visiting 29 Palms, CA, about 3 hours east of LA. Bacon at the Walmart was $5.49 a pound and up. An 18-pack of eggs was just under $3.00. And gas around here hovers at $4 a gallon.

    When Yellen says there is no inflation, or that inflation is under control, she is LYING!

    • Priszilla

      If everyone eats bacon the price goes up, especially when millions of pigs get sick and die.

      Last time I bought bacon, was last week. 3 slices as part of my lunch meal. Yesterday I made burgers from turkey and lamb mince. Each about £2.50 for 500g. Will last me through the weekend.

      • GSOB

            IMO being Jewish is a race, the religion is Judaism. You must be born a Jew to be a Jew. Anyone can embrace Judaism, but that does not make them a Jew. It is interesting that Islamics hate Jews so much, because Islam is nothing more than extreme radical Judaism. Both are legalistic and teach that salvation is by works and not by faith. Christianity is not legalistic, it teaches that salvation is by faith and that justification is by works.

These institutions don’t even make excuses anymore to drive prices up.

Even when we have enough to get more, we still average about $200.

    billionaires are quietly dumping stocks at an alarming rate…John Paulson sold all of Family Dollar and Sara Lee, and 14 million shares of JP Morgan. Buffett has recently dumped most US stocks including his entire position in a Cali based computer parts company. Also, Soros has sold nearly all bank shares in JP Morgan, Citigroup, Chase, Goldman Sachs and . Says he “lost faith”. There are speculations of a massive market correction. Big money families have been quietly leaving the US. Many private investors such as Doug Casey now interview from outside the States….The implications of all this are truly terrifying. We are not some third world that could somehow weather the storm, we are the worlds dominant force. Can you imagine what would take place in the event of economic failure? My first concern is that it would leave us open to attack. Probably in the form of an EMP which would render us helpless. On top of that would be chaos and panic, now cue the rioting and violence. I think you get the picture.

        • Priszilla

          Yes, that’s the point. This crisis started because people could not afford the houses they bought or built or had built.

            Replace soldiers by officers or generals. Actually I wonder where hollywood gets their ideas about rogue american soldiers from?

            It isn’t nonsense. People will use opportunities to get out of a fix. They even use credit cards to pay off their mortgage because they can’t afford the interest (of the mortgage).

            US socialism is dying – that what this entire collapse is about. Best to let it die.

            Socialism did take over the US and must be displaced, if need be, by the power of God (what’s happening now), because proper civilization can never function under socialism or “the welfare state,” for the good and sufficient reason that the principles upon which socialism and civilization are conceived and operated are inimical. Socialism denies the individual of their self to benefit an unnatural collective ruled by a small number of similar humans. No amount of zealotry or technology can bridge that divide. Socialism must collapse first, or everyone involved will die – that’s it’s nature.

          • Priszilla

            Well, your government takes out debts to pay for the military, that wages war all over the world. And then asks your taxpayers to repay that debt to the banks.

            The taxpayers also make children that are sent out as soldiers so they can get killed or return home maimed and kill themselves at home.

            Just like the government the citizens enjoy their guns and take out debts to live above their means. Then they blame everybody else for their mishaps.

            And no I haven’t been there. Except for a week during which I had a cold and stayed on the hotel.

      What do these people have in common? Oh that’s right, they’re white and not loyal to any country. But then again, they sold the jobs to china so I am right yet again, white people (that are rich families) created this problem.

      • Malcolm Reynolds

        And what country are you loyal to, loon? The one that gives you reparations for something you never endured? The one that pays you off with welfare for work you don’t perform?

        • RalphEllison

          Who in the hell is getting reparations? And there are more Whites who have EBT cards than anyone else.

          Xander is exactly right – wealthy WHITE families created this and other economic disasters. Knucklehead 99% Teahadists Whites such as yourself are too scared to challenge White “massa” on his crimes.

          • Malcolm Reynolds

            Snore.
            There’s plenty of white crime, and plenty of white welfare. and if you missed the news while swallowing the MCNBC line, there are plenty of people out there agitating for reparations.

            The question was to address that loon’s obvious anti-white racism which will always fly over the head of nutbag leftists like you (teahadists).

            BTW, I’m for abolishing the leftist created Fed and the vast majority of the leftist federal govt so ya, I’d say I’m absolutely willing to address massa’s crimes. How you knuckleheads manage to ignore that while agitating for ever more powerful govt is beyond me.

          • RalphEllison

            They aren’t “plenty of people agitating for reparations.” The guy from the Atlantic magazine made a compelling case supporting reparations, as a vehicle to explain the barriers and mistreatment African Americans were subjected up until recently.

            And to suggest that the Fed and taxes is a leftisi creation shows that you listen to Glenn Beck too much. It was created by elite Whites to control the masses economically and extract their wealth.

          • Malcolm Reynolds

            Hey dolt, whose presidency agitated for the Fed and when was it created?
            Apparently to your addled, below-average mind, “It was created by elite Whites” is somehow mutually exclusive of leftist.
            BTW, it was Woodrow Wilson who is a leftist top 5 president to this day.

            They aren’t “plenty of people agitating for reparations.”

        i will thanks. socialist nations have been at this for ions. it does not work to convert a large industrial first class nation into a sh*thole socialist state. the whole ‘you will do what we say ‘ crap is getting old, fast. your post is dead on.

      • LibertyChick

        Yes – most of our elected officials are Socialists – on both sides. We were designed to be a Republic, and were very profitable as a Republic. A Democracy has only ever existed about 70-80 years before it collapses into socialism. We’re at that 80 year mark. Unless we return to being a Republic America will perish. Elect Libertarian leaning Constitutionalists if you want to save America. In the last “Freedom Index” published by the John Birch Society, of all our Congressmen and Senators, only 6 of them voted 90% or more in alignment with the Constitution. That’s their oath – to protect and defend the Constitution. I don’t think we need term limits. We need accountability: vote 90% of the time in alignment with your oath to the Constitution or you are not eligible for re-election or higher office. If we did that, Obama wouldn’t be our President and Clinton would not be eligible. And 90% or more of the bills that folks propose would not even be introduced as they are unconstitutional. What a savings of time, money and effort!

        • topgun

          With all due respect, ‘voting’ is a con to pit people against each other. The electorial college ushers in the president. Kind of like the whole Pope ‘election’ BS. And this: Obama will be the last president of united states..

      In your post you mentioned EMP, check out the video American Blackout 2 available on YouTube. This video will open your eyes to how vulnerable the US grid is to not only EMP but also to cyber hackers. In the video it is stated that several million would die to lack of clean potable water and medical care. The elderly and very young would be some of the first to perish. However, the government doesn’t care all part if the plan of the globalist. Good luck

      • JulietteofOhio

        My grandparents lived into their 90s and they did it without electricity or city water. It also got hot and cold back then, and there were few grocery stores. It’s harder and less comfortable then flipping a switch, but it can be done. You don’t have to be a victim, or any more of a victim than you already are at the mercy of Obama, so hit the internet and find ways to survive.

        • cracker

          The problems that you will encounter with an EMP pulse is manifold. First and foremost the electric al grid is disabled if not destroyed this leads us to zero availability of fresh potable water in just a few days, second no electricity all fresh and frozen foods will spoil in just a matter of days, third once available gas/diesel is gone hospitals will cease to function. Within in a matter of a few weeks gangs will begin roaming the streets searching for food, water and meds. Within a matter of a few months millions will have succumbed to disease or the roaming packs of gangs. Finally, it will not be easy but surviving in this type of environment will not be easy but it is possible you just have to plan ahead for most contingencies. Good luck…the end

      My, my, my… an unbelievable summary of everything that’s wrong with America! First, we have “we are not some third world that could somehow weather the storm”. What do you think? That people over there are never hungry, don’t “somehow” need water, food, schools and health services? That they “somehow” have no children that need looking after? Let me teach you something: people starve, fall ill and die in these countries same as you would.

      Then “we are the world’s dominant force”.
      Not anymore. You are the world’s dominant DEBTOR. Your country operates exactly like you would if you had a luxury house, swimming pool, private golf course, three cars, and model wife, but if NONE OF THAT WAS YOURS. Indebted to the eyebrows, only apparently rich, but everything would belong to some private company or other. The minute you stop amusing them, that reclaim it all and you’re left naked.
      In reality, America is dirt-poor.

      Then, we have the EMP business. Typical American paranoia. As Americans revel in imaginary fears, let me tell you the country appears more and more unbalanced to the rest of the world.
      Ger yourself together, for Heaven’s sake.

      • topgun

        i’m don’t give a rats butt about people over there, my country is collapsing and i live in it. our homeless are better off than third world people. we have a horrible on demand food chain/delivery system. see how that works out for ya. our people are helpless and spoiled. 9 meals to anarchy, the average food in the average household. then what?…next issue. lets see what happens with our military when their home country is in ruins. we/and they will be sitting ducks. actually our gov’t has been testing, [along with Mexico], the grid against an EMP attack. in fact, Russia controls the space stay now that NASA is gone. and who is at odds with Russia? and why is the space stay so important?… next issue. you are as dumb as a box of rocks.

      • topgun

        I will try, thank-you.

      • topgun

        There is no other country like ours. Our on-demand food delivery system depends on driving long distances. We are a fast food nation. We have 3 days food in our houses…people in other countries grow food and help their families. You can think about that, ok? …We are the worlds greatest military might. Imagine what some pissed off nation would try if we fall…What about the troops overseas when our nation fails? Being a debtor has no bearing on the world when we collapse…And of course, someone would try to cripple military and tech capabilities. An EMP is the main concern at this time with the US/Mexican governments. Are you aware that NASA is gone and our only way to the space stay is Russia? And now Russia has made a pact with Iraq? By the ‘shoot from the hip’ response from you, I would say you are very young or very stupid. You choose..

      “Buffett has recently dumped most US stocks”
      This is an outright lie. His investments are little changed except that they are now worth 105.7 Billion.
      Biggest change on the most recent 13-F filling was the addition of 11 million shares of Verizon,
      He reduced his position in only 4 stocks and completely sold out of none.
      Paulson sold 13% of his Family Dollar holdings. He made as many new purchases as he closed out and has 17.5 Billion in investments.

    She calls it inflation, but when you think money as money then your money is being devalued and she wants to devalue it by 2% per year. At least that’s less than how much it’s being devalued right now. So at 2% a year, then after 50 years it’s worth nothing, which is about the time a fiat currency lasts on average

    I’m going to have to rant. My wife and I had a baby last December. I set aside $5K to cover all costs not covered by insurance. I was way off. Let me tell you the “Sticker price” for a C-section and 6 days in the hospital starts around $56K. They graciously discounted it $18K to $36K. Between the OB-Gyn, the anethesiologist, Hospital, Pediaterician(that was actually a few hundred dollars) I’m on the hook for $3K after I set aside $5K. Add this on top of the price of chicken, gas, electric bills in Texas and what ever BS taxes get applied to whatever any goverment agency can dream up and it hurts.

    • xander cross

      And who created these prices in the first place? White people did (white people in power that is) but of course, you won’t point that out because you love spending that money that they print out of thin air at “china-mart”. How is “made in china” working out for you?

    I was going to a well known store here in the PNW, when I noticed tents and people kind of hidden not 100yds from the door, I decided to look around a little closer in my neighborhood and look past the tree line, this brought me many shocking surprises!!
    the empty lots, and wooded sections all around for miles have people living in them, they are trying to go unnoticed by the common person. The homeless are growing, and in alarming numbers, they are constantly looking for something they can “find” to sell or hawk at a pawn shop. I rented a rundown house to save $ a year ago, and I had been thinking it was time to move out a little more “Rural”, I made up my mind that night and rented a cabin on a lake, I move this weekend. Things are a lot worse than any one of us can see in our own little areas, we do not see the whole pitchure, it is bad out there, and it is going to get worse than most of you can imagine, I for one can see the handwriting on the wall. The only hope is a reset of everything, and even that will bring a great distress. I hope you are all as prepaired as you can be, God Bless!

    Yup, I’ve noticed the raise in food and gas especially… gas up 40 cents just in the past few days. Food going up continuously. We recently heard the county is considering raising personal property taxes yet again, by 7%.

    So far my salary meets my needs… but I have had only one raise in 5 years (and that just 1%, hardly worth anything after increases in taxes)… my rent goes up every time the property taxes go up. I’ve got some health care issues and that’s been the biggest concern, I have had a few months this year when my co-pays were around $500-600. Last years paid something like $6000 in combined co-pays and medical device costs that weren’t covered despite having supposedly “wonderful” government health insurance.

    • Orange Jean

      Oh and I was furloughed for 6 days last year, so that basically took away most of the little raise that wasn’t taxed.

  • Orange Jean

    One small savings suggestion… not too hard to do. If you are not vegetarian, consider planning half your meals as vegetarian. You can still eat meat some of the time, but will save if you also have main meals half the time that use beans and grains, cheese, etc. as the meal. Think mac & cheese, beans and rice, etc.

    It’s always the first thing I do when the food prices go up too high, helps that my dad was a vegetarian most of the time… so we used to eat that way as kids. Still get to eat meat, poultry or fish some of the time, just less often.

    No matter what the excuses given or reason the prices should go down, prices continue the upward march. For many of us, our income is marching down.

    Its also important to note the QUALITY of the food that you are buying. I believe that this has suffered due to supermarkets trying to keep afloat during rampant inflation.

    5 days ago I went to Walmart for a quart of half and half for my coffee and the price had gone from $1.88 to $2.08 (and up to $2.18 in the supermarket a few blocks away). I was just in the supermarket today and the price of half and half is now $2.79! So the cost went up 10% first and then another 20% just 5 days later. That’s 30% in one week and the Fed says inflation is only 2% They must think we are stupid.

    There are a variety of mental disorders. I believe this definition from WebMD sums up the infection in this country in everything from banking to gubermint to corporate.

    Simply replace this disorder of “Impulse control and addiction disorder” with one word…GREED.

    Impulse control and addiction disorders:
    People with impulse control disorders are unable to resist urges, or impulses, to perform acts that could be harmful to themselves or others. Pyromania (starting fires), kleptomania (stealing), and compulsive gambling are examples of impulse control disorders. Alcohol and drugs are common objects of addictions. Often, people with these disorders become so involved with the objects of their addiction that they begin
    to ignore responsibilities and relationships.

    The great America is killed by health insurance for everyone?

    HAHAHAHA

    • Mudpie

      A glittering jewel, for sure….

    • LibertyChick

      Health insurance was cheap as was medical care before the HMO system was created, and Obamacare is HMO’s on steroids. We didn’t have a health care problem in America before HMO’s. All’s we need to do is get rid of that system, go back to catastrophic insurance that is only used when you exceed your deductable (like car insurance) and let free market competition determine what doctors charge (prices will decrease 80%). Health insurance costs would decrease 80-90% as they would rarely be used (surgery, disease, etc.). As a matter of fact, these days it seems rare that I find anyone who isn’t taking one or more medications. Before HMO’s it was rare to find someone who was. The bastardized system has turned us into drug dependent zombies. Fat ones at that – people weren’t so fat before this HMO model: it cost money to go to the doctor so folks took better care of themselves.

    Hi all, here in new zealand (you know the one, little u.s puppet ;) our (real!) inflation is just as bad, reserve bank declares annual rates of inflation to be 1 or 2% p.a, yet food, fuel, electricity, housing just keeps skyrocketing.. gas station style replaceable number price tags are creeping in everywhere it seems! we have all the same problems, compounded by isolation.. think 3$ is bad for a coffee? we pay anywhere from 5-9$ nz (probably 4$-7.50$ u.s at the moment) and about 2$ u.s per litre of fuel. Our inequality index is surging ahead of the u.s as well, money funnels upwards even quicker in a smaller economy it seems, and our society is suffering as a result. when will it all end? Awesome site, love reading the articles and comments here :)

    “The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.” Vladimir Lenin

    Do not believe for even one moment that the present regime is unaware of Lenin’s words – or that it is unprepared or unwilling to act upon them.

    The powers-that-be have decided that one of the acceptable “costs” of creating the neo-feudalist system they seek is going to be the destruction of the middle class. They are already far along in implementing their goal.

    I went grocery shopping this weekend. As I looked at the shelves, I noticed three things: 1) Prices are higher, 2) Packaging is smaller and 3) there are less choices.

    When I shop for myself, I only buy items on sale. When there’s a “Buy one get one free”, I will stock up. It’s really the only way I can stretch my food dollar these days.

    This year, I’ve really started to be cognizant of prices. I just spent $2500 on a solar and wind set up to help offset my electricity costs. I have a battery backup, in case I lose power. Once the batteries are charges, that extra solar/wind power feeds back into the grid and lowers my electric bill. During winter, I set my thermostat down to about 62 degrees.

    Luckily, I have my own water supply and well. The water is very close to the surface. Regardless, I had the well drilled an extra 75 feet…just in case.

    Most people are either ignorant of the rising prices, or just complain about it. Very very few people that I know are actually taking steps to lower their costs. It’s a shame, really.

    There’s one simple trick to end all this. Restrict legal and illegal immigration and drive up wages.

    How is it that last time gas was $3.80, oil was $150/bbl, but now oil is only at $106/bbl for $3.80 gas?

    The red team wears blue underwear, and the blue team wears red underwear. Politicians don’t care for the average American person when they can get so many more goodies from the corporate banksters they represent. The rich get richer, the poor get poorer.

  • Sandbagger

    I never used to look at prices of things I wanted/needed on my shopping list. Now I do. It’s amazing how easy it is to pass on purchasing things that aren’t absolute necessities. You just have to ask yourself, “The cost of this item represents how much of my time?” Often the answer alone will make you put it back on the shelf. For instance, a small container of coffee creamer represents nearly half an hour of work for most $10 an hour workers. Do you really need your coffee with cream?

    • Priszilla

      Yes, I need that coffee creamer, because fresh cream will spoil.

      BTW, what is “small” over there? (I once ordered a small starter in a bar for dinner and after I was full to the top, half of it was still on the plate).

      Over here, 500g of Nestle Coffee Creamer are £2.30.

      • Sandbagger

        Nestle is $5.49 for 2.2 lbs. I say that’s small because we used to pay less for a container that had nearly double the amount only a couple years ago.

        • Priszilla

          Well, overfishing, and overgrazing.

          Right now we get 1,000,000,000 more people on this planet every 12 years.

    What did Presidents Hoover, Truman,
    and Eisenhower have in common?

    Back during the great depression,
    Herbert Hoover ordered the deportation
    of ALL illegal aliens in order to make
    jobs available to American citizens
    that desperately needed work.

    Harry Truman deported over two million
    illegal aliens after WWII to create
    jobs for returning veterans.

    In 1954 Dwight Eisenhower deported
    13 million illegal Mexicans.
    The program was called
    Operation Wetback.
    It was done so WWII and Korean War
    veterans would have a better chance at jobs.
    It took two years, but they deported them!

    Now, if they could deport the illegal aliens
    back then, they could surely do it today.
    If you have doubts about the veracity of
    this information, enter Operation Wetback
    into your favorite search engine
    and confirm it for yourself.

    Why, you might ask, can’t they do this today?
    Actually the answer is quite simple.
    Hoover , Truman, and Eisenhower were
    men of honor, not untrustworthy politicians
    looking for votes!

  • Randy Townsend

    Well said. When George Bush left office, gas was $1.75/gal and the MSM screamed – blaming him – when it went spiked temporarily to $3-4/gal during his Presidency. In CA, we’ve seen gas prices of over $5/gal under the Anointed One, with an average of $3.50 over the last 4 years – not a peep from the sycophants that call themselves “journalists”, and certainly no blame laid at the feet of King Obama. All the indicators tell us there is very little “recovery”, yet what do the elected pols say? Probably much the same thing as the crew of the Titanic – “Everything is going to be all right…. Trust us.”

  • Brother Tim

    Most people know the game, I listen to Jim Willi, John Williams and other people who understand whats going on. People who are trying to help people prepare for whats going to happen. They both said this year will be the start of hyperinflation. We know what to do prepare store food, buy silver, gold or anything you think will have value.

  • nosferatukakamono

    democrats OWN A 250 YEAR HISTORY OF RACISM:

    -SLAVERY

    -KKK

    -NAACP – OH, THAT WAS FOUNDED BY REPUBLICANS

    -NRA – YES, ONE OF ITS ORIGINAL CHARTERS WAS TO TEACH BLACK MEN TO DEFEND THEMSELVES AGAINST THE RACIST DEMOCRATS WHO WANTED TO LYNCH THEM.

    -JIM CROW LAWS

    -FDR OPPOSED ANTI LYNCHING LAWS

    FDR IMPRISONED OVER 100000 JAPANESE AMERICANS DURING WWII

    TRUMAN AND JFK MADE PUBLIC RACIST COMMENTS

    THE CIVIL RIGHTS LEGISLATION OF ’64 WAS PASSED BY A HIGHER PERCENTAGE OF REPUBLICANS THAN DEMOCRATS; AL GORE’S DADDY VOTED AGAINST IT. APPLE DOESN’T FALL FAR FROM THE TREE

    AFTER THE PASSAGE, LBJ SAID, “THE N’S WILL VOTE DEMOCRAT FOR A HUNDRED YEARS”

    Obama’s racist friends are Rev. Wright, Al “Tawana Brawley” Sharpton, Eric Holder and Michelle Obama

  • Realist

    As with seemingly EVERYTHING these days, the carefully crafted fiction of “low inflation” is allowed to percolate freely into the public consciousness along with the employment numbers and myriad other bogus stats, and we can count on oligarch-media from both sides of the political aisle to “play dumb” (OK, so maybe they’re not playing) and simply pass along those asserted numbers and percentages that *prove* their fictions “true”. Those sub-moronic media twits will NEVER willingly tell any unapproved “truth” or do any serious investigation of their owners, now will they?

    We are now in banana republic territory, but with the soothing balm of fading First World status to give the appearance of legitimacy. Our new Royalty have decided that North America, like Europe before, simply MUST integrate into economically cohesive unit and anyone who doesn’t like it will simply be put under the jackboot of the IRS, Homeland Security, ad nauseum.

    This is a war on the country from within and by the most unbelievably selfish and stupid among us. A curse on them and their children.

  • Kristen Marie Embler

    A lot of people don’t really value education. Ask your average college student why they are there. Most will recite the “college is an investment” line. They are there to essentially “buy” their future. Credentials mean more than actual learning. Education, if there is any actually obtained, is a side effect.

    Being a retired dude, I am extremely worried. I should live just about 14 more years, but my and the wife’s retirement money is melting. The cruelest tax of all is inflation, especially to retired folks. What makes this so cruel is that we scrimped and saved and did without, live very modestly and now our hard earned dollars are leaving like a fart in the wind.
