This Is EXACTLY What The Early Phases Of A Market Meltdown Look Like

Stock Market Collapse Toilet Paper - Public DomainThere is so much confusion out there.  On the days when the Dow goes down by several hundred points, lots of people pat me on the back and tell me that I “nailed” my call for the second half of this year.  But on the days when the Dow goes up by several hundred points, I get lots of people contacting me and telling me that they are confused because they thought the stock market was supposed to go down.  Well, the truth is that if there is going to be a full-blown market meltdown, we would expect for there to be wildly dramatic swings in the market both up and down.  A perfect example of this is what we experienced during the financial crisis of 2008.  9 of the 20 largest single day declines in stock market history happened that year, but 9 of the 20 largest single day increases in stock market history also happened that year.  If we are moving into another great financial crisis, there should be massive ups and massive downs, and that is precisely what we are witnessing right now.

On Tuesday, the Dow surged several hundred points.  There was much celebrating in the mainstream media over this, but what they failed to realize was that this was another big red flag.  And we saw this volatility carry over into Wednesday.  The Dow was up 171 points early in the day before ending down 239 points.

By themselves, those two days don’t mean a whole lot.  The key is to look at them in context.  And in context, we have already witnessed the most dramatic stock market crash since the last financial crisis.

There will be more days when the stock market absolutely plummets and there will be more days when it absolutely soars.  No stock market crash in U.S. history has ever gone in just one direction continually.  There are always giant waves of momentum that cause panic selling and panic buying.

There is one thing that could change that.  A major “black swan event” such as a historic natural disaster, an unprecedented terror attack, or the outbreak of war could potentially be enough to chase all of the buyers out of the marketplace.  And considering the times that we are moving into, those things should not be ruled out.

But minus some type of event like that, we should expect lots of wild swings in both directions.

Over the past couple of years, I have repeatedly attempted to explain the general principle that markets tend to go up when they are calm and they tend to go down when they are volatile.

If you want the bull market to return, you should be rooting for lots of really, really boring days on Wall Street.

When things are boring, investors make money.

Days that are “exciting” are really bad for Wall Street.  Investors like a world that is predictable, and when conditions start changing rapidly they get very, very nervous.

In the months ahead, trillions of dollars are going to be lost in stock markets all over the planet.  Feel bad for the retirees and the hard working families that are going to get wiped out by this, but don’t feel bad for the banksters.  They have been laughing it up while most of the country has been suffering during our ongoing economic decline.  If you don’t believe me, just check out this YouTube clip.

A lot of people are going to be paralyzed during this time, because they won’t know what to do.  They didn’t heed the warnings up until now, and they thought that they would be able to safely get out of the market when things started getting crazy.  The big ups and big downs in the markets will confuse them, and the mainstream media will be telling them that everything is just fine.

If you have been waiting for the market to send you “warning signals”, then you can stop waiting because it is happening right in front of your eyes.

Now is not a time for fear.  Personally, I seek to live my live in a constant state of peace without any fear even though I write about some very hard realities almost every day.

This is part of the reason why I so adamantly encourage people to prepare for what is ahead.  Knowledge and preparation can help eliminate fear.

If you already know what is coming and you are already prepared for it, you won’t be freaking out like the rest of the general population will be when things start really going crazy.

I want to share something with you that Brandon Smith wrote recently

Panic betrays and fear kills. The preparedness culture is built upon the ideal that one must defeat fear in order to live. How a person goes about removing uncertainty from the mind is really up to the individual. For me, combat training and mixed martial arts is a great tool. If you get used to people trying to hurt you in a ring, it’s not quite as surprising or terrifying when it happens in the real world. If you can handle physical and mental trauma in a slightly more controlled environment, then fear is less likely to take hold of you during a surprise disaster.

Six months may be enough time to enter a state of mental preparedness, it may not be, but more than anything else, this is what you should be focusing on. All other survival actions depend on it. Your ability to function personally, your ability to work with others, your ability to act when necessary, all rely on your removal of fear. Take the precious time you have now and ensure you are ready to handle whatever the future throws at you.

Life in America in the years ahead is going to look dramatically different from what life in America looks like right now.

Do you have some specific tips on getting prepared for what is coming that you would like to share with the rest of us?  Please feel free to join the discussion by posting a comment below…

    Your faith should come first!!! Next is Security, food, water, shelter . Pray for the best, Prepare for the worst.

    • John Noyb

      Totally agree with you G – if you haven’t trusted Jesus as your Lord and SAVIOR – everything else you do will NEVER take your fear away! The time is short to all the would be scoffers. Do it while you have the opportunity to. The Bible has been 100% accurate – 100% of the time. What have you got to lose??? If it’s not true, you can have your old life back.

  • Bill

    It is so easy to be fooled by the manipulation.

  • Harbinger

    Wild swings in the stock market? What is really going on? On October 20th of this year the IMF plans on announcing a new world reserve currency. In timely fashion, Putin has drafted a bill to eliminate the dollar all together. The FED is planning on raising the interest rate by the 20th of this month. If you thought the market was bad now, you haven’t seen anything yet.

    • Mike Smithy

      Yep, it’s all part of the plan. I predict that TPTB will manufacture a false flag event in the next few weeks. The presstitutes in the MSM will label it as a black swan event. The controlled economic demolition will allow the politicians and central banksters to save face and allow for implementation of their NWO plans.

      • AcknowledgeThis00773

        Yes, an economic collapse is important, but I’m to the point of tears trying to get people to pay attention to something else going on out there that is IMPORTANT for them and their families –>
        …………..
        If everyone doesn’t want their children, grandchildren and themselves exposed to MORE RADIATION, then you all had better pay attention to this.
        …………………
        This is for real.
        …………………..
        What $$ you do have could end up paying for your cancer and other illnesses caused by more radiation exposure.
        ……………………………
        Take 2 seconds to do this:
        ..
        (1) Go to www dot change dot org
        ..
        (2) Copy/Paste this in the search engine there: “Protect children from radiation exposure!”
        …………
        Read it…and see what the nuclear industry has in store for ALL of us.
        ………
        Do this for the sake of yourself and your families.
        …..
        Tell them NO more radiation!

          Your dumb radiation is not harmful.

        So are we going to be stuck with the same people in Washington? Could that be why the republicans have done nothing, and Obama has controlled everything.

      • Quetzol-43

        Really? Just as whatever reputation and trust they still have among the public and the world evaporates?

        At least when Nixon imposed his decision back in 73 the US was an economic superpower and widely seen as such despite the Vietnam events, not a loan away from third-world statue like today.

        Now, without the dollar as an international trade currency, the US will be like British Empire in 1945.

      • AnonymousLiberty

        False Flag won’t be needed, they’re about to start WWIII. Attacking Syria will be the event they need.

    • VigilanteCaregiver

      Harbinger,

      First off, I really like your ideas and your comments are great. I do have a problem of not finding the IMF doing a world reserve currency on the 20th. Could I get your source?

      And I do think the idea the IMF would do it is valid. On their website is a panel discussion from 2008 called “One World, One Currency: Destination or Delusion” where half were for such an atrocity, and half against.

      What’s going on now is creations of regional economic confederations. I just heard of this one earlier today: the Eastern Caribbean Economic and Currency Union (ECCU). And many nations are proposing economic unions with the IMF (similar to the EU): East African Community (EAC); Central American Common Market (CACM); Australia and New Zealand are proposing a union; and at least 11 more out there.

      And when they want to make trade easier within these unions? A single trade currency as an exchange medium.

      • Harbinger

        Look up Dr. Steve Sjuggerud. The IMF’s intent is to offer a new world currency so that nations can choose what currency they want to base the value of their currency on. In essence it is a basket of currency for nations to chose from, the problem is Russia and China are going to squeeze everyone out and the dollar will no longer have the value that it currently holds. Furthermore Chase Bank has already written their new banking program for 2016 and for the first time ever they have left blank the input area for the dollar. What are the anticipating?

        • SunnyFlaSnotress

          All the DoomsDayers are jumping the gun to say the IMF plans to implement a new world reserve currency.
          It will be a discussion phase. A look at possibilities. That’s quite different from an actual plan of action or offering.
          Like VigilanteCaregiver says, let’s see your credible source.

          • Quetzol-43

            Yeah, an international currency would need honest international cooperation to work, that just isn´t going to happen with the “ukraine”, Hong Kong and South China sea events.

    • Mad Monkey

      LOL CNN fear and greed index, all measures in extreme fear except for volatility?? The new norm, There is no volatility it is neutral??
      Brazil credit now in Junk status, big economies other than China failing badly.

    • Quetzol-43

      Who will trust the US to establish a new type of money as international trade currency after the exploitation of the “dollar” Federal Reserve Note lead to a disastrous collapse?
      Who is going to trust the EU, when even Germany is facing growing problems?

      • alan

        Exactly! Here the new dollar, red in color with Chairman Mao on the front.
        The dollar won’t die as we know it. It just won’t be worth much. People will wonder why is everything getting so expensive, the media will blame it on Putin.

    • AlwaysYesterday

      They claim they are going to raise it. Don’t believe it until you see it.

      • Never next week

        That name looks kind of familiar.

        • SunnyFlaSnotress

          If only I had gotten a code word from our friend who seems to have been banned.

    • Merf56

      Well the IMF is basically run by the Americans. So I don ‘t think they are going to destroy the governmentt they bought and control and control so completely and so well….
      I for one, cannot wait to see the U.S. lose reserve status. There should be a basket of currencies. Keeps the oligarchic business control team off balance.
      I also think Putin is a smarter and more logical leader than the loopy China leaders and clearly more than any Repub or Demo leader in the U.S. Not that I like his regressive social agenda mind… But still- he is actually trying to improve his country and assist his people. Unlike the corporate whores running the U.S. In both parties.

  • FortuneSeek3rz

    Sept 17, 2001 the Dow crashed 7% & the S&P bottomed at 777 in 2002. Sept 29, 2008 the Dow crashed 7% & the S&P dropped to 666 in 2009. September 13, 2015 will be the end of the current 7 year cycle

    • stephen

      Actually figure for 17 Sept 2001 was 6.98%. The other dates are rounded up and down; its unfortunate that Jonathan Cahn makes claims about a total stock market crash but the bible says the shemitah was ONLY given to Israel and there are no prophesies about it applying to any other nation. Interesting.

      Also interesting is the 6.98% dip in the stock market… does that mean God does not do what He says He will? Or that the U.S. is only 6.98% bad so the market only dipped that amount?

      Another interesting point – because the shemitah is a release of DEBTS but its not mandatory for foreigners creates a problem for Cahn too. Then there is the OPTION for Jews to release debts of foreigners – again something Cahn does not talk about even tho its clearly shown in scripture.

      BTW the shemitah is a release of debts, not stock market. If you look at the consumer and govt debt levels from 1930 to present, there is no decrease or wiping away of any debts. But what was the result of the crash… err dip in the market in 2008? There was a 700 million dollar bailout that was placed upon the backs of citizens via taxes, which resulted in more govt debt and more consumer debt. I wonder Cahn doesn’t bring up that info in his books & DVDs?

      I bet Cahn is already making excuses for when Sept 2015 passes and there is no total collapse.

    For every physical ounce of gold which is sold, there are now

    {{{{ 207 }}}}

    paper contracts – in other words, if you buy and receive one ounce of gold, 207 other people have bought the same ounce via a paper contract.

    When the shortage of gold is realized by Joe Public, what do you think will happen to the price of your Gold Ounce?

    • Guest

      I don’t anymore. What’s to stop the criminals who run the COMEX from taking it up to 500:1? or 1000:1?

      Don’t misunderstand. I have plenty of silver and gold, and I’m not getting rid of it. I believe I’m going to need it soon.

      • Guest

        Correction: I don’t know anymore.

      • G21

        I know exactly how you feel. It’s just that I’d rather have it than not.
        I bought another 3 – 1/10 oz of gold and 20 oz of silver today.

        • squander

          I thought your advice to someone here was to buy the stock and not the physical metals.

  • Hussanatu

    During our doomsday prepping, let’s not forget there’s more to life than just survival. C.S. Lewis once said, “If we find in ourselves desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that we were made for another world.” God has set eternity in our hearts, and the only sure way to be at peace in the coming chaos is to rely on him. We do what we can (training, prepping, etc) and leave the rest up to him.

    • Guest

      Very well said.

    • Stay away from God. Jesus and Satan are same people. That is why they never occupy same stage. When jesus comes satan leaves, when satan rules jesus disappears.

      The universe don’t need god. Humans do and you gonna pay dearly for your beliefs very soon.

      You have no idea whatsoever, what is going on and you will loose everything. Stop giving your energy away.

      Do not become a scalar point on earth. Be free

      • victor

        How do You come up with this?

      • VigilanteCaregiver

        Please stay away from power tools…

      • Jason

        Wow! Those are some pretty serious words. You might want to sit back in a quiet room and really think about the complexity of this universe, life and it’s ability to reproduce, and ask yourself again if this all happened by chance. Historians, not bible scholars, will tell you that the bible is the most accurate historical document known to man. Biblical predictions are also the most accurate known to man and beginning to unfold before your eyes. Scientists cannot give us an explanation on theories of big bangs or evolution, but the bible does offer very understandable teachings of creation. Not trying to convert you, just asking you to think.

        • Jason

          One more thing, just a thought to consider. Our scientists cannot even figure out a scientific method to prove if someone is under the influence of marijuana or if they smoked it a week ago, and we are going to rely on their theory of how life began or that they can accurately carbon date a rock back 800 million years. Just saying, question who we are getting our information from.

          • victor

            You have a good point. Romans 1:20-25 says it all my friend, and brother.

          an Agency? I guess that is the new religious neutral term. I prefer to think of myself as a freelancer.

          • algol2000

            I am not a religious person, just a student of nature. And nature tells me that the intricate patterns and inter-dependencies that we can observe around us did not occur by chance.

    There will be a – probably short – period during the Tipping Point in which cash will still be accepted but unavailable. *** See ‘Greece’ ***

    Enough cash to pay 2 -3 months of bills might keep you afloat and out of Big Nanny Government’s pocket.

    • G21

      This shortage of cash might take effect because –
      – When the general public realizes that the economy is all a sham, based on nothing more than debt and wishful thinking, there will be a run on the banks. Panicked people will want their money out of the banks and in their own hands.
      – Capital controls (rules on what you can do with YOUR money) will be imposed to try to keep the banks solvent.
      – Severe daily ATM and withdrawal limits will be imposed (€60/day in Greece).
      – ATMs, despite the low daily limit, will run out of money because people will line up for blocks to make withdrawals.

      Best to have some cash in reserve.
      Better still to have gold/silver in reserve.

      We’re in the early stages of a crash now. Only the denialists and the low-information crowd can’t see it.

      • G21

        This will be the point at which people begin to loot/riot – when they can’t get THEIR OWN MONEY out of the banks.

        Now begins the period when grocery store shelves will be bare. These will be the days for which you have stockpiled food.

        IF – IF – this period lasts very long, hungry, starving thieves will try to take what you have stockpiled. Big Nanny Government will declare “hoarding” illegal, and try to take what you have, “for the good of the general public”…

        Will you let them?

        • G21

          Prices for food/necessities will be shooting up daily – $20 for a loaf of white bread, $100, $200!
          $75 for a gallon of gas!
          And your employer may have to shut down because he can’t afford the overhead!

          Suddenly your cash reserves will seem like nothing.
          – Ah, but gold and silver –
          You’ll see that Precious Metals prices will also be skyrocketing. An ounce of silver (so cheap today) will still be able to buy a good amount of food. You’ll be eternally thankful you bought some silver/gold.

          Oh, those stocks you bought, hoping to make a fast bundle?
          Worthless paper.

            Maybe I’m naive, but I think gold and silver would be absolutely worthless in an economic collapse. Who’s going to trade their valuable and scarce commodities for a worthless piece of metal that can neither clothe, feed, nor shelter you?

          • victor

            You are right.

            Farmers and manufacturers will still be producing food. Would you rather exchange a pallet of flour/sugar/tomatoes/eggs/etc for a stack of blankets/clothing of unknown origin or a 100 oz silver which would is easier to transport and is divisible enough to exchange at whatever markets pop up in this new economic world?

        • Harbinger

          The government is quickly becoming irrelevant. People who are able to think for themselves will learn to shoot first and ask questions later. Not a good time to be in city or surrounding areas. What do you the think was the real reason behind Jade Helm? The government wants to know where they can expect the most push back from and then control those areas first and worry about the rest later. It only take three days of trucks not delivering their goods, for the shelves at grocery stores to start looking bare. Either way we are in interesting times.

        • Hussanatu

          This is why we need to prepare ourselves physically and TELL NO ONE of our stockpiles. Desperate people do desperate things. At the same time we also need to be careful not to hoard all of our food/supplies when SHTF and people are suffering around us. Obviously we can’t share with everyone (you’re obligated first and foremost to protect and provide for your family), but there may come a time when you feel led to share with someone else. Jesus warned us to not store up for ourselves treasures on earth where thieves break in and steal “but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven… for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

      • Harbinger

        Unfortuanately our government has already enacted a fail safe, from their point of view. If they stock market drops more then 7% in a given day they automatically suspend trading and banks will limit cash withdrawls within 48 hours if the stock market suspension isn’t lifted. However, when the dollar loses its value and banks offer to buy it back at 50% on the dollar what do you do?

        • victor

          Agree, Martin Armstrong talked about that a while ago.

      Very wise decision.

    • Dude…Have you seen the kinda of vehicle the marines are driving in America. They would roll over your house, they are bringing in TANKS and Armored Vehicles.

      I would suggest moved to the hills, mountains, forest..where these vehicles don’t reach…That’s the safest place in America right now..Leave City

      • Hussanatu

        Running for the hills is not a practical solution for most people.

      • alan

        The hills will be full of people. Cities have many more places to hide and easy to blend in. Of course other hungry people are out and about too.

      • SunnyFlaSnotress

        No, no, no.. Don’t leave the cities.. I’m moving there.
        If the system crumbles, the remaining forms of transportation will be mass transit.

        • gfmucci

          Snotress joketh. Mass transit is the first to goeth.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            No,no,no.. First, there would be disruption in gas supply. Then the military would ban personal vehicles in select areas, and guard mass transit.

    • Jason

      You better get more than one, and load up on the ammo! I recommend having at least two guns chambered in the same caliber. If one gun fails, you have another one that shoots the same round.

    • Harbinger

      Guns are great, but they become a paper weight without ammunition. Explain why the IRS purchased over 90,000 of .45 caliber ammo. Last time I checked the IRS is not a part of the DOJ.

    • Hussanatu

      Make sure you also get your CCW permit if you haven’t already.

      Buy a mac10 or a uzi….they have big firepower and a small size you can carrie them in your jacket..and put a carbine in your car..all people buy pistols but if have one of these….i think they are going to think twice before messing with you….but if really goes to hell try go to coutryside….less people less problems…you can hunt…or even cultivate….cities are going to be hell on earth

      • victor

        Like the planet of the apes!!!
        I live in the city, gangbangers and thugs will be running a mock. I will be giving them the peace sign, with my hand, yelling, “give peace a chance.” I think I will be ok, they will honor that. lol

        • CASTIEL

          Lol…i hope you dont do that….just shoot them on sight.:)but i think being a arms dealer in those days will be very lucrative

        • SunnyFlaSnotress

          Only if they find you sexually pleasurable.

      • SunnyFlaSnotress

        William, don’t choose the militant loner social freak path as some may suggest.
        First of all, if things did go to pot, the uzi-armed gangs would outnumber you.

        • CASTIEL

          militant loner anti social freak????? you think you can trust anyone except your family when that days cames???yes you could have a pistol i like to see you reach me with your pistol at ranges of 400 metters….and i drop you with a rifle….if gangs outnumber you…what you are going to do with a pistol????if you are inside your house and you want those gangs, robbers outside your house is with a pistol???? you need a gun with long range to keep them out of your backyard

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            I will be living in the city by the Jade Helm center. It would be militarized, and be within my range. People wouldn’t be roaming around w/rifles etc.
            Furthermore, I don’t know how much shooting with a rifle anyone’s shoulder can stand. I am very happy w/little recoil.
            When facing a gang, after picking off maybe one or two by rifle, it’s probably time to get to a safe room anyways.

          • CASTIEL

            there are rifles that have low recol……i m not talking about a 50 caliber :) I have a wichester rifle 30.30 model 1894 and have less recoil than a sw magnum…..its a excellent weapon never jams has a range of 600 700 metters…and you can shoot severall times and your shoulder should be just fine….you can shoot until the barrels overheats….also a shotgun is very good to defend a house….you dont have to worry with accuracy with this weapon….a pistol is good when you get out of house to conceal in the jacket…..i live in the city too but if things get to complicated i will return to the farm….

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            I thought they didn’t allow firearms in Britain.

    • Green tip

      I’ve been following what you say on this site for a couple weeks and figured out you know what your talking about. What I can’t figure out is how does one know what way the market is going to go on any given day to take advantage of these wild swings?

      • victor

        How much have You followed out of curiosity?
        I believe he knows as well, and even recommended a book for me to read, did he recommend it to You as well?
        I know little about the market, but what he says, makes sense to me.

        • Green tip

          I’ve followed pretty closely as in oh most everyday skimming through the info on here. I saw the book he recommend and thought about buying it to be honest. Time will tell if there’s going to be a great collapse, a slow prolonged death, or hell maybe the DOW will go to 20,000 like the one guy said above, kind of doubt it though.

          • fwalker15

            I believe stocks head lower after October 1. I did get bearish today and traded some tza call options and sold most and held just a few overnight. Markets have reverted to and amazing precipice right here completely confounding both bulls and bears – must be computer generated to be this efficient but the next 25 point move on the sp500 up or down from right here is very significant and will be followed by 50-75 points in that direction although as I said I’m not really I buyer of company stocks here other than very special situations. I would be more a bull by proxy via TMV or SBND (a bear on bonds) jmho

      • fwalker15

        Although it make take a lot of experience trading in the markets before it becomes second nature one must recognize that on a day to day basis it really is very efficient computer generated algorithmic trading and significanly dependent on technical analysis a fancy phrase for pattern recognition. Maybe a simple method may be to research “Andrews Pitchfork” for trend line parameters and if one is cautious yet bullish I would look at TMV or SBND as they move 3x inverse of the treasury debt or simpler when stocks move higher (these days) bonds generally move lower or those inverse ETFs move higher or on days when stocks move lower I use TZA its 3x inverse of the Russell 2000 – I use close weekly options but they’re highest risk or UVXY which is 3x implied volatility that’s likely way too risky. That may not be helpful but that’s what I do daily. For anyone though I would look hard at TMV and SBND the inverse treasury debt etfs I think rates ultimately head north eventually and maybe a look at USLV 3x silver and UGAZ 3x nat gas and UWTI 3x oil. Not advice just what I do. I never give legal tax or economic advice or services consult a professional for that.

    • Steve Lukas

      The day is fast approaching when people like you will NOT believe their eyes at what is coming upon the world and you will be the one that will cower in fear.

      People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world.
      Luke 21:26

  • I sat with a 1 percenter banker and accountant and he offered to buy my insurance business and put me to work. Very confusing considering that we are collapsing and he has no idea?? By banker I mean he owns the bank. Any ideas and maybe a heads up that what we think is happening really is just fearmongering. I am prepared either way and to be honest would be better of if this happens but I cant be so lucky. This business enviornment sucks

    • Psychedelic banjo

      Yes. Only fearmongering. Correct.

    • fwalker15

      You’re obviously very confused and easily misled if you think an individual owns a bank in this country. You may want to do a little due diligence there. :)

      • Steve Lukas

        more ignorant trash spewed…

    • victor

      How’s business for You? Have You seen a gradual drop of business over time, that has led to a higher percentage now? Have You experienced this before to the degree in the past?
      How are You prepared either way, as You mentioned?
      I don’t believe fear mongering, just trying to use wisdom in these trying times.
      Also, fwalker15, has a good point about an individual owning a bank, unless he’s the top of a cartel. lol
      As my friend said to You, a little due diligence.

      • Busines sucks which is why I am selling. Obomacare has killed the insurance industry which I have been in for 30 years I am 47 and just confused why a banker would not see what is so obvious. But again liars are buyers and this banker is in the dark

  • El Pollo de Oro

    A question many preppers are asking is, “When will the you-know-what finally hit the fan? When exactly will the economy of The Banana Republic of America go into total meltdown?” But I’m not looking for one gigantic mega-event that will suddenly push the BRA into Mad Max horror. This is death by 100,000 cuts. Or maybe 1 million cuts. Regardless of how much the banksters lie to us and claim that happy days are here again, anyone who honestly analyzes the economy realizes that there never was an economy recovery for the BRA. It’s all smoke and mirrors, and the Ponzi scheme cannot last forever. The BRA is now a Third World hellhole and will only get worse.

    These are some “fun” things to look forward to:

    1. A formal devaluation of the BRA dollar, which will have about as much value as the boliviano or the Guatemalan quetzal when all is said and done..
    2. A bank holiday.
    3. A bail-in a la Cyprus, with the banksters giving a big “haircut” to Americans’ savings accounts.
    4. Mass rioting in the streets that will make the recent Baltimore riots look tame by comparison. Remember: when people lose everything and have nothing left to lose, they lose it (Gerald Celente). Get ready for a bloodbath.
    5. The militarized policías using the violence as an excuse to crack down on civil liberties even more.

    6. Imperialist war abroad. When all else fails and the politicians want to get your mind off the terrible economy, they take you to war (Gerald Celente). Empires are unsustainable and inevitably crumble, but they cause misery all over the world before they do.

    The prepping continues, the praying continues as the BRA slides deeper and deeper into the abyss.

      5. AND The militarized policías using the violence as an excuse to steal YOUR money.

      • El Pollo de Oro

        Gay Veteran: In New Mexico, the policías forced a guy named David Eckert to have a colonoscopy and take three enemas after they searched his car for drugs and didn’t find any. They thought he might be hiding them inside his body, but the colonoscopy and the enemas showed that there were no drugs inside his body. Then, on top of that, he was sent a bill.

  • Preacher62

    The number one specific tip on being prepared for what is coming, depends on what you think is coming and what you believe will protect you from it. I know for certain that the last day on earth for many will be today. Might be mine. If the market collapses……. or not; if an asteroid strikes…… or not; if the fault lines on both ends of the country split…. or not; a million things can happen…..or not. The only thing that is for sure is that it is appointed unto man once to die and after that, the judgment. Repent and believe the gospel, and Jesus will carry you through whatever comes your way or never comes your way. Food, water and shelter are all from the hand of God and he gives those freely to all who seek first his kingdom and his righteousness. Turn loose of this world and grab on to Jesus, he is the only sure thing.

    • Patriot crier

      Dear Preacher62, All you
      said about trusting in Jesus is correct and that is the most important part of
      prepping. But as for all things from God you forgot to mention that He does not
      put a paycheck in every Christian’s bank account every month while we sit home
      on our butts. He expects us to get our butts to work and He blesses us through
      our work. Fear is when you are unprepared, both for eternity and for this life.
      I have no fear as I have Jesus and common sense. I see worldly danger
      approaching and have used common sense to prepare for the storm. So from all my
      preparing for eternity and this worlds dangers this is what I have come up with
      since I realized God has given over America to its evil passions.

      10 G’s FOR
      SURVIVAL: BE PREPARED FOR:

      An Elite (Pilgrims
      Society) Bankers governmental
      Coup d’état been trusting in god that

      A Bank holiday (bail
      in), or A FED induced currency crash,

      An EMP power outage
      from the sun or a NUKE

      Or any natural disaster everyone should be ready
      for anytime.

      1. GOD, you must
      get Jesus in your life, without Him this life is a hedonistic, useless
      existence and eternity (yes, your spirit lives forever) will be worse than
      imaginable. If I am wrong, everything is even. If I am right, woe!

      2. GET debt free
      as in a crisis jobs will be scarce.

      3. GOTS, “GET
      OUT of THE SYSTEM”.
      Banks have already stolen your money! Get all your assets including cash out of
      the hands of the bankers! How?

      4. GOLD, in your
      hand not paper and this includes silver & other PM’s as a store of wealth
      to preserve your labor & Land. PM’s will pay the bills & taxes.

      5. GUNS, includes
      Ammo and any other weapons you will need to protect your family from those who
      would do you harm when law and order vaporizes.

      6. GROUND, a plot
      of land, away from the city, with plant-able soil including lots of heritage
      seeds to grow your yearly food supply. Begin canning your food. Do # 7 to hold
      you till your crops come in. Save Rain runoff for crops.

      7. GRUB, Store
      food & water to survive the turmoil until food supplies are restored, if
      ever. A well or a stream will be a life saver. Stock up your Rx’s

      8. GAS, including
      wood, heating oil and other fuel supplies to live off the grid.

      9. GENERATORS,
      Gas, diesel or propane and including solar, wind and water for a long-term
      supply of power for survival off the grid.

      10.
      Grouping, network with like-minded people and
      neighbors as there is power in numbers and you cannot stay awake 24/7 when
      those who have relied on the government teat take to the streets to take your
      food. FEMA camps are for those whose heads a buried.

      • Preacher62

        It is not possible to seek the kingdom of God and his righteousness while sitting on one’s butt. I do not need any of the G’s that you have mentioned because God provides for those who are doing his work and will continue to do so. I am by no means faulting your plans and if that is what you feel the Lord is calling you to do then that is what you should do. My point is; and I will stand by it till my dying breath, is that those who are seeking the kingdom of God, going and making disciples and caring for the widows and orphans, will be given everything we need. According to Jesus, all we need is enough food and water, just for today. If we die tonight we will need nothing tomorrow. If we live through the night, he will provide again tomorrow. That’s his word, not mine. God Bless.

    I do not think a collapse will happen. The unemployment rate is down to 5.1% Also copper is going up. Iron ore stocks are trending favorably was well. So demand for commodities is increasing.

    According to David Stockman –
    – “Federal Reserve [actions] will have disastrous long-term consequences… when you deny price-discovery in the market for so long, it is a massive subsidy to speculation… In an era of peak debt, the only thing zero interest rates achieve is create an enormous incentive for Wall Street to gamble more and more recklessly…”

            pay us back from stealing our money from us thru our taxes we have to pay each year!!! lol

        • victor

          I thought so, just wanted to see where You were coming from.
          I’m curious to see what pans out myself.
          I thought it would start going a little more crazy this week, with more people being aware of “something.”
          If what Jonathan Cahn’s studies is true, about even the last two seven years, we will see.
          God, for those of us who believe, can do it at the very last minute, or two minutes.
          I was actually wondering if Israel actually practices it today. The Shemitah.
          I can go on to what else is coming up, Feast of Trumpets, after that U.N meeting and other things.
          What’s you take?
          Then I’ll tell You mine.
          It’s just dialogue.
          Just as the Lord spoke the world into existence, all He has to do is speak whatever He wants, and it will come to pass.

          • G21

            Victor, I read somewhere that Israel as a whole does not observe the Shemitah – but I’d say the orthodox rabbis do.
            Just my guess.

          • victor

            Thanks, I know they follow the Feasts of the Lord, or some of the people.
            I listen to Mark Blitz on u tube, once in a great while, a Messianic Rabbi. Got some good, info, explains the feasts, and how Jesus fulfilled them, or why they were observed.
            Check it out.
            Like I heard, when did Jesus stop being a Jew?

          • anon

            Actually jesus was not a jew.

            Technically correct.
            He has been from the beginning.
            In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.

            Exactly. I expected to see more activities leading up to the collapse next week. Granted, it’s September, October, or even by the end of this year that you need to be open-minded about (not just 29th of Elul). But feels more and more like the exact 7th year mark from 2008 will prove itself to be a dud. Talking about Shemitah people always mention last 2 seven years but really it’s just a coincidence. 1994 was non-event. Yes OC went broke but so did Greece and Puerto Rico this year. Maybe that’s all we got.

          • victor

            Hard to say, we may be on slippery ground, allowing gay marriage, not supporting Israel, Palestine talks coming up for land the 15th with U.N.
            Some here won’t understand, because it deals with the bible and what God says. Not everyone believes.

          • doG

            Forget gay marriage, all you idiots brought the wrath of God upon us all when you started allowing divorce. That’s when this country started going to hell. Then people being allowed to work on the sabbath, not fasting on Fridays, priests allowing parishioners to touch the body of Christ by hand rather than receiving him directly into the mouth… The destruction of this country started a long time ago.

          • victor

            You idiots, who you referring to?

          • Hussanatu

            I couldn’t disagree more. Our country isn’t going to hell in a hand basket simply because people fail to adhere to a strict set of man-made rules/traditions (that’s right I said it: MAN-MADE. Jesus’ words, not mine. See Mark 7). It is because like the Pharisees during Jesus’ day, we honor God with our lips but our hearts are far away from him, and we have exchanged following God’s commands for human traditions. You blame “all you idiots” for what is happening and I’m sorry to bust your bubble but you’re one of us idiots! On one thing we do agree, that God judges nations (or rather removes his blessing and protection from countries that turn away from him). He is not primarily a wrathful God, abhorring us and dangling us over the fires of hell. No, he is a loving God and draws us all (individuals and nations alike) to repentance.

          • Gay Veteran

            wth? someone here not blaming The Gays???

            you want to support Israel? send YOUR money, not ours

          • victor

            I am, thru my taxes.
            Just like I don’t like my tax dollars to be used on information or a report on the sex of a prehistoric bird. The strength of a condom, which Trojan should pay for, or the promiscuity of homosexual man and how many partners they have.
            Those are just some of the things money is wasted on.
            You don’t know what the bible or God, says about Israel, because of Abraham’s faith.
            Genesis 12:3
            I will bless those who bless you,
            and whoever curses you, I will curse,
            and all peoples on earth
            will be blessed through you.
            You don’t have to believe, that’s your call. If I’m dead wrong so be it, it will go with me to the grave. If I’m right, then God’s promises were true, and His words correct. Eternity is a big hand to be gambling with.
            Who is this Jesus?
            Was he the biggest liar to have lived, claiming to be the son of God?
            Just a nice man?
            Or just a prophet?
            Who do You say he was?

          • Gay Veteran

            bring the troops home,

            NO foreign entanglements.

            if the fundies want to support Israel they can send their money, themselves, their wives, their kids, just keep the rest of us out of their psycho trips

            I agree, I’m for securing the borders,
            English as the national language, people do need to assimilate, here in California, a lot of Spanish, Vietnamese, Indian, one big melting pot, but English, no press number two for ebonics…lol
            We need to rebuild America by also throwing these self serving leaders out of office. It needs to be we the people.
            Can it happen?

          • Hussanatu

            Have you read The Harbinger? I’m not a doom-and-gloom type of person, but that book was the catalyst to get me prepping. I don’t want to be a deer caught in the headlights when this all goes down.

            hit wrong button, I downed You, so I upped you.
            I have both books, but mostly watched him on u tube. I watch another guy to, Mark Blitz, he gives really good teachings on biblical feasts. What they meant, how Jesus fulfilled some of them. How some haven’t been fulfilled yet, the fall feasts
            I love the study of prophecy.
            I think this is all unfolding slowly, to eventually lead up to NWO.
            Again, everything evolves around Israel.
            But we can see what’s happening around the world. Our country has never been in this much debt.
            I believe it’s good to be prepared to some extent. I live in California, so if we have a major earthquake, they say to have food and water. Also money on hand which makes sense, if no electricity. Just a while back, they had a city in L.A. with no power for 3 days, kept showing it on the news, so that goes to show you, without hell even breaking loose.
            We all have our different perspectives on how things will play out. I believe it will be gradual, but over time snowball and get bigger.
            Tell me your take, and we can dialogue back.
            The main thing is we hold unto faith daily. Because that’s what’s going to save us when the time comes. God can decide to call us home at any minute, He has appointed our time.

    • Jason

      I wouldn’t be tripping on a “promised date” so to speak. I think that a collapse is inevitable, whether by design or by a monetary system that is broken globally. Take a look around, no countries economy is in true recovery and we are all intertwined by import and export. If we ain’t got the money to buy your product, you suffer too. Listen, you’ve got to live your life, but prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

      • victor

        It will happen, according to God’s time clock, and His Word, which he tells us that things will happen. It’s all being set for the man of lawlessness evidentially to take the stage.
        I just seen a video earlier where this newscaster tripped these Syrian refugees trying to run from police, in Hungry wanting to catch trains to Germany and it was caught on camera.
        I was thinking with this mass of people, and the problems these other countries are having, how it’s going to really effect them financially.
        You are correct, live the life God has for us in faith, not fear.

  • theonlysaneone

    Ya’ll are like little children all excited for the collapse to occur. Now my little ones calm down. Ya fricking sickos… you really want a collapse? Your crazy, pray we don’t have one-jeez!

  • don’t_take_things_forgranted

    I do not want an economic collapse but I do see that we will have one at some point in my life and it’s looking like sooner rather than later. As far as preparing, these are things that I’ve read to be prepared: heirloom seeds for a garden (heirloom seeds are the ones you can save to have a garden next growing season not hybrid), know how to can/preserve food, stock up on canned goods and beans, rice, noodles, water, things that won’t expire right away, hand pump well, chickens and rabbits or any other livestock you can afford to feed once the collapse occurs, greenhouse, solar or wind power, wood fireplace but preferably a wood cook stove especially if you have harsh winters, guns/ammo, bow/arrows, hand crank radio in case they are still broadcasting after the collapse and after we all lose power, clothes/shoes/school work books if you have kids, ladies would need a moon cup or diva cup/sea sponge tampons that are reusable or make their own pads, contraception so hopefully no unwanted pregnancies, foraging books, know how to fish and hunt animals, know how to sew and have an old non electric foot peddle sewing machine, silver/gold, candles/oil lamps and oil/wicks, medicines, vitamins, first aid supplies, bug out bag fully packed in case you have to leave in a hurry, extra gas in case you need to drive somewhere, bunker, a dog that’s a good protector type, portable water filter.

    That’s all I can think of. Even though I wrote all that I know not everyone will be able to prepare to that extent, I know I’m not and won’t be. The things is if we all prepare, even if it’s not as prepared as we want to be, we will be prepared more than most.

    • Looney Toons

      Your out of your fricking mind!

      • don’t_take_things_forgranted

        Hey at least my names not looney tunes lol!!! So if you don’t think the economy is going to collapse, why are you here? If you do think it’s going to collapse then how bad or not bad do you think it’s going to get? If the economy collapses and our money is useless, how are we or the government going to pay to keep our electricity, heat, and city water? If you think the government is going to pull money out of it’s rear end and pay for everyone’s utilities or help anyone but themselves when the economy collapses you are going to have a rude awakening. The government handed out war bonds/ration coupons to people but said if that’s not enough for your family then grow a garden and at that time we didn’t have as much debt or as many people and the global economy wasn’t as bad. During the Great Depression, people had more knowledge and experience in survival skills then we do now. When the government is unable to help us when the economy collapses, you don’t think people are going to panic and it’s going to be pandemonium??? All I have to say is good luck to you, your going to need it when the economy collapses.

  • CASTIEL

    I think there will be a big economic collapse when ww3 begins until then……economy survives …..and fighting for that survival is what create the conditions for a big war…humanity survived a lot of wars…but now is different….one day it will happen….its just enough the right crazy person to push a litle button, its a question of time to that person appear or reveal himself….

      Probably be Iran.
      This Iran deal, I think would seal the deal.
      Not right away, but in time.
      Our country, more so leaders, haven’t always been Just. The Iran Contra Arms deal, someone pointed out quite a while ago, Vietnam, these past wars, I’m no war historian, even what we did to the Indians.
      We’re a great and blessed country, and I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.
      I just think Iran would be a good pawn to use, because they would do it.
      My take, and I do not fear the reaper. lol

      • CASTIEL

        And Iran is a ally of russia, Israel is attacking the assad regime in syria witch is an ally of russia too…..and there are rumors that israel is funding the Isis..and Israel is an ally of the Usa.There are all the conditions to provoque a big conflict…..probabily you are right….and of course we have that guy with a very bad haircut from north korea….

        • victor

          But here’s the thing, Iran will be pumping oil to Europe, which Europe will be happy, cheaper oil, meanwhile they will buy Russian missiles. I know the Saudi’s are in it to, because of the Sunni, Shiite division, I forget which one they are, I believe Sunni, and Iran is Shiite.
          I don’t know about Israel, I think they are on their own right now, with our present administration.

            I can see some humanitarian aide, and we could help school them. If they fail after that, it’s on them.

    As I previously mentioned, we’re obviously entering the ‘dreaded’ second trough of this Depression so what I’m seeing ahead is a sharp uptick in unemployment, sporadic market meltdowns, unprecedented bank failures soon followed by capital controls, and other equally catastrophic events that will culminate into an unmitigated nightmare that nobody bargained for (in any age).

    You can tell who the Americans are on this site because the first thing they think about when warned to be prepared is go and get a gun. Presumably they need to kill a few people randomly to get the feel for killing people when they think it’s really necessary. The gun seems to be the magic potion that will solve all of their problems. The thought is “I’ve got my gun now everything will be fine”. Can I as a mere Englishman living in France suggest that the “gun” thought is a mental block. Try thinking things through like a person would have to where guns are illegal.

      Americans need a gun because everyone else has a gun. It’s a catch 22.

      Americans don’t think guns solve all problems, but they are a great deterrent to those who may wish you physical harm. Believing yourself to be more “thoughtful” because you don’t or can’t own a gun, is a self-righteous point of view, and one I find common amongst Europeans. By the way, have you thought through what you’re going to do when the Muslims start taking over your countries? My guess is you’ll just capitulate and call yourselves “smart”.

    What we are experiencing is a collapse in waves.. 2001…. 2008… 2015… and eventually 2022-23 and 2029-2030. Why? Because it’s a systematic resources failure. The finity of the physical world is knocking, and we are in the first part, of the curve of the fall. Those who control the economic system will try “faithfully”(as a religion) to repair the system and keep it going, and they will fail. By 2030 the collapse curve will reach the second phase, the rapid decline, where we will see the end of the industrial civilization. And it will be so steep that no amount of propping will restart it, this will also include a population death increase as resources rarity increases. We are indeed screwed frogs in slowly boiling water.

    • Nemnor

      Steeve Girard, I posit that even if thing eventually unfold SEEMINGLY according to the “waves” you mentioned, you are definitely correct about the (practical and virtual) LIMIT of the physical world. It is that finite World’s “economic pie” that brings the world-wide Capitalist economic system to a “dead end” and to the point where Capitalism can no longer generate long-term recovery.

      As soon as the system (Capitalism) begins to “recover”, economic activities quickly “heat up” and then the markets are flooded with too much “stuff”, and hence, a state of over-production. And this is an insoluble problem within Capitalism, without bring about massive destruction of Capital (i.e. the means of production). Only (World) war can bring about that “massive destruction” Capitalism needs to “reset” itself, and it is likely that, like WW-I and WW-II. History will repeat itself with this decadent and decaying world-wide Capitalist economic system.

      Not true at all. If you are an actual bible thumper you would know that no one is in heaven right now until the book of life is opened and judgement begins.

      According to your own bible all the dead are just rotting in the earth right now waiting for that day to come.

      Interesting maybe their is a waiting room for the soul, after all it can’t stay in the body once dead.

      • victor

        Actually our spirit is with the Lord when we die, our body is here.
        You are right about the judgment, than we will get our heavenly dwelling after.
        2 Corinthians 5:1-10
        It explains it all.
        Checkout John 3-5&6 for explanation of being born of the Spirit. Read to verse 21 for whole understanding.
        Actually it’s good to start at verse 1.

        It’s all wrapped up in faith, either one chooses to believe, or doesn’t. It’s our call.

          What is the difference between a human and an angel?

          • victor

            Humans were made in the image of God. Angels are created beings, to serve God and help us.
            There’s also fallen angels, demons who fell away or were kicked out of heaven when Lucifer was banished, because of his pride. The bible says a third of them fell.
            We can be children of God, thru faith in Jesus, which makes us greater than angels.
            It goes back to the garden with Adam and Eve. When they sinned, rebelled, it broke our connection with God, because He is Holy. They could still connect, but than it had to do with sacrifices to show obedience to God.
            That’s why the devil tempted them, they had control over all the land, animals. But once he got them to fall, they forfeited dominion over to him.
            Which he still rules now. He even promised Jesus the authority back, if Jesus would bow to him. Jesus didn’t dispute his reign.
            But Jesus took back that reign, by living a sinless life, and dying on the cross for us. So the Father raised Him up from the dead. It was the only way the devil could lose his reign.
            That’s why now if we believe in Jesus, God promises to raise us up as well in death, but also we are no longer dead spiritually. We have a relationship with God, how it was meant to be in the beginning.
            Adam and Eve could talk to God physically, before they blew.
            Hope that helps, had to give you the full picture.
            Bible says, we have an angel around us. Also we entertain them, I could look up the verses, to back it up. I think by entertaining them, I’d say by good deeds, helping someone out, kindness.

          • anona

            I wonder how if angels were created to serve god that they would have human emotions such as pride, jealousy, etc.

            How exactly was it meant to be in the beginning? God creating people as dumb animals who just blindly sung his praises day and night? Why is knowledge a bad thing in the bible? Even angels in gods realm were able to do and think bad things.

            Ironic that even though adam and eve had direct access to god and could speak to him and actually hear him talk back that they still choose to eat from the tree. I guess god was just not enough for them. Same with the devil. Have you ever wondered why?

            Maybe because the story is just that a story and has not one ounce of truth to it?

  • gary hillerich

    Now is not a time for fear. Personally, I seek to live my live in a constant state of peace without any fear even though I write about some very hard realities almost every day.
    bingo Michael!..get right with your lord and SAVIOR, & you shall have no fear ..not of pain,suffering,or death,as we have all sinned & will simply lose our earth suits upon death…what exactly happens between death & the new life is not certain,but rest assured
    your divine soul will be safe with Christ until his new kingdom on a healed earth or new earth is ready…..a PERFECT earth, as it was always meant to be,until man[Adam and Eve] was tempted by Satan & indeed sinned..
    .. great & wonderful times are soon ahead for the righteous..how can true Christians not be absolutely & positively be excited about their future![and YOUR future as well if you seek eternal life with the Lord!]
    the only “fear” you should EVER have is FEAR OF THE LORD!
    & fear of the Lord? it IS the beginning of all truth & wisdom!
    there is one thing i see today that is very VERY troubling..a throwback to Paganism…something waaay too many American’s now have,[if fact its a rarity to not see one on someone..tattoo’s ..tattoo’s in fact glorify unholy non-Gods! in fact, both women and men wear certain clothing JUST SO YOU CAN’T MISS SEEING THEM!
    everywhere & every time i venture out in public now, I can’t help but see these pagan era drawings covering the skin, & they are to used to hold the mark of the beast ,electronic tracking system..still think they’re cool? unfortunately many will, and will happily & gladly let the earlthy devil’s minions put a electronic chip in and around their tattoo[s]
    tattoos will very soon be used for Satan’s new world order of the ages electronic tracking system,that will give Satan absolute & complete control over you & EVERYTHING you do[including life and death of course]..you my friend have fallen into the illuminati’s “fad” trap,and getting a tat is obviously the trap that tattoo’s are soooo cool!! and what has Satan’s earthly Luciferians[Satan’s fellow fallin angels now on earth as humans doing his bidding] used to sell their tattoo craze? you guessed it..TV! far and away the most powerful weapon at Satan’s disposal!
    they[tattoos] simply couldn’t be more evil..GET IT/THEM REMOVED..if… that is..
    you seek eternal life with the Lord..these supposedly harmless tattoos will soon have complete and absolute control over your very life as Satan’s electronic 666 beast system will be a major if not complete part of those supposedly harmless tattoo’s!
    ,
    please remember that fear of the Lord is the beginning of all TRUTH & wisdom!.. please get right with your personal God today..Godspeed to all..

      There’s fear and hope.

      On July 13, 1917, in Fatima, Portugal, the Mother of Christ, appearing to 3 shepherd children (which series of visions ended in the “miracle of the sun” that was witnessed by thousands and reported even by secular newspapers of the day), said (bearing in mind, this was 1917, in relation to the world wars):

      “To save them [poor sinners who are on the road to hell], God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end; but if people do not cease offending God, a worse war will break out during the reign of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that He is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions against the Church and against the Holy Father. (note: this light was thought by Lucia to already have been seen before her death.)

      To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays. If My requests are heeded, Russia will be converted and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions against the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated.”

      Later, the Blessed Virgin said:

      “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she will be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”

      As of today, though the pope has (repeatedly?) consecrated “the whole world”, Russia has never been consecrated explicitly, according to the will of God made known to the world through His mother.

      Among the things foretold if man continued to offend God and did not heed this heavenly demand, was a vision of “a bishop in white” perceived to be the pope, walking in pain through a burning city, praying for the dead (evidently many clergy among them) before finally being martyred. Another terrible chastisement is also foretold, wherein the world will be punished terribly, wherein the good will suffer along with the bad.

      The internal crisis of the Catholic Church was evidently also foretold, that there would be ‘cardinal opposing cardinal and bishop opposing bishop’ and those particularly devoted to the mother of God would be persecuted, which has also definitely happened. The message regarding this internal disaster was supposed to be revealed no later than just prior to the scandalous Vatican II council, but knowledge of the nature and length of the secret strongly suggest the actual message was not, or not completely made known.

      What was later revealed to the last of the 3 children surviving, was a harrowing vision of that chastisement, but there remains, of course, the promise of peace, and the chastisement is also conditional… eg, it comes if men do not repent and obey this divine request issued through His mother… which means it can be averted if people turn the right way.

      How very “odd” that in these late times, many souls in Russia are suddenly (or perhaps not so suddenly?) getting very religious… God writes straight with crooked lines. Because of ancient Rome’s far reach over civilization, at the time of Christ, the Church spread more easily in it’s beginning. One never knows what God will use or how.

        “The internal crisis of the Catholic Church was evidently also foretold, that there would be ‘cardinal opposing cardinal and bishop opposing bishop’ and those particularly devoted to the mother of God would be persecuted, which has also definitely happened.”

        The internal crisis is because it is ‘romish’, full of sin and idolatry, like you espouse.

        You don’t know the difference between the true Catholic church and the Roman catholic church.

        The true catholic church, it’s catholicity, is universally ONE, in Christ……. not the pope or Rome.

        Read Ephesians 4:4, 5

        There is one body and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

        One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

        One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

    • anon

      You live in fantasy land, along with your fake bible and your fake jesus. Just ask all the preachers getting caught with their hands in the cookie jar on the AM website.

      There is no strength in your conversion, just a b.s. promise of eternal life.

      All religious texts were created to control man and keep him from learning the truth about his origin and why he is really here on this earth.

      • victor

        Just curious, why do you think we are here on earth, and what is our origin?
        Your perspective?

        • anon

          You are not really curious. If you were you would go online and research different perspectives and points of view as to our origins and why we are here in earth.

          You would prefer however, for me to tell you why I think we are here and how we got here, so that you may ridicule what I know and then go back to the comfort of the beliefs that you have adopted as your own reality.

          I will leave you with this…

          We are almost like cows grazing in the pasture. Content to move from place to place, yet never going anywhere.

          The barbed wire a farmer strings around his land is meant to keep his property from wandering off.

          Have you ever wondered why cows with acres and acres of pasture to munch on, will choose to gingerly poke his nose through the barbed wire and feast on the grasses that are outside of his confined space?

          We are like these cows. Kept in a cage we cannot see. A cage that is dressed up in patriotism, work, bills, entertainment, worship, procreation, all designed to make us feel as if we have a purpose in this world.

          All if it an illusion that most will never wake up from, until we pass from this life onto the next.

          • victor

            You got me wrong,, no need to ridicule you in what you believe or know.
            I believe in what I believe, because God, Jesus, has changed me from the inside. Again something spiritual, which some don’t believe in, or can’t understand.
            I still struggle with aspects in human nature, anger, pride, etc.
            Just wanted to know where you were coming from.
            But that’s ok.
            For me, God, Jesus is real, and Jesus for a Christian, is to be our ultimate role model, not religion.
            Jesus, He was either the biggest liar, claiming He was the son of God,
            just a nice man,
            or a prophet of God.
            That choice is up to each one of us.
            We have the freedom to choose.
            Don’t need to convince you. You have free choice to believe.

          • anon

            No I had you pegged right. Your answer speaks volumes. Go back to sleep little sheep.

            To not even see the contradiction you posted about how jesus changed you, yet you still struggle with aspects of human nature is sad. We all struggle with these aspects of human nature. Whether we believe in jesus or the bible.

            There is no conversion of the actual human condition. No true change. Just a person reading a book and claiming to try and live a good and moral life. Which can be done without the bible also.

          • victor

            Wish you well on whatever journey you are on.
            We will both will find out on our last breath, if there is an eternity. That we can’t dispute :)

          • NinjaGiraffe

            Tell us, then, how a Catholic communion host managed to turn visibly into a paper thin slice of LIVING human heart tissue (human blood of type AB)… when the moment it would be removed from a living organ it would have died. Scientific impossibility… but one that happened anyway. That is one, single, scientifically proven (under a microscope and everything!) miracle. Of many. (See Eucharistic miracles for details.) Or how about saints that died hundreds of years ago, and were never embalmed, occasionally remaining perfectly “fresh” hundreds of years after death. Not the partly decayed ones. The ones that haven’t decayed AT ALL. (St. Francis de Sales, for example.) Or how about the “light image” hidden on the shroud of turin (of a man in an upright position) made by discolored threads without any artificial pigmentation, uniformly one fiber deep. Or the 3d data on the same cloth. Or the forensic evidence on the same cloth that pinpoints it to a man (also blood type AB) scourged beyond traditional law and crucified at a very precise window of history, in the place where Christ lived… all as investigated by a forensic doctor. (See, “A Doctor at Calvary”).

            Sorry, but the ones not bothering to look truth in the face are the ones that just go, “oh well, there must be some hoax going on there” and just refuse to look at the evidence they’re always demanding even when it really is solid, and even when others who looked at it in order to mock it and prove it was a hoax are converted when they find out it isn’t. Even the Church used to (until this last century) throw out “miracles” as proof of sainthood, if they could possibly have been explained by any natural phenomenon, and were not instantaneously done. Like a leper with nothing left of their face but a gaping hole, praying to Mary, and suddenly having a face. Kind of hard to get there by hysteria, really. Or the image of Mary of Guadalupe, again with no trace of paint or dye of any kind, except in the spots where it is known that the local people tried to ‘touch it up’… on a fabric that should have been dust a long, long time ago which is somehow still in one piece, even though that is also scientifically impossible. It’s made of vegetable fiber. How long do your veggies last, exactly? Well, this plant matter is still there, hundreds of years after the fact (since 1531), even after someone planted a bomb in front of it and tried to blow it up. Blew up a metal cross standing there, but not the vegetable cloth. Hmm…

            This is the stupid thing about the old atheist mantra “prove it, prove it.” Have yet to meet one that actually went out there and looked at the hard core evidence that exists, because they really wanted to know. They pretty much never do. But many of the few that have have been converted when they discover just how real it all is.

            Wise man say… “atheism is a fairy tale for people who are afraid of the light.”

          • anon

            Yes the famous Catholic Church. I believe them like I believe in….Well you fill in the blank.

            Religious types make me sad. For their spirituality is clouded by liars and deceivers. Who will stop at nothing to make sure the truth is hidden, so that their power and status remains intact.

            I am not an atheist.

    Part 2

    Scott Walker the socialist- A campaign promise for 250K jobs-empty. Walker
    Chairs the WEDC and GIVES away $1.184 BILLION in tax dollars to his
    friends-State Crimes. Expands the State Budget 5% AND our DEBT, for his
    idea of Tea Party “smaller government”. Paid WI Justices almost $10
    MILLION in laundered funds through Club for Growth (Madison) and Bradley
    Foundation (Milwaukee), to buy “decisions”. Accepting LARGE donations
    (Menards) and THEN “legislating” new tax codes for them.(Menards)This is
    NOT rhetoric, these ARE FACTS. Fitz-Walkerstan wants to cry victim
    again, when it is his ALEC-GOP raping this State? Short around 3500 WI
    teachers as Scotty has adopted his friend Chris Christie’s idea of
    punching out the Teachers’ Union leaders.

  • 2Gary2

    I was asked if I am a socialist by a friend for supporting Bernie Sanders. Here is my response:

    Labels
    mean nothing-Walker just gave 250 million to the bucks whose owners
    are some of the richest people in the world. I would call THAT
    socialist. Why is it only called socialist when it helps regular people
    but not called that when its corporate welfare?
    A fact-corporate welfare is costing us as a country way more that any
    welfare for people. We as tax payers pay 3 million per WI Walmart to
    subsidize their payroll by providing food stamps and health care to
    their low paid workers as the Walton’s are the richest people on the
    planet. Socialism for the rich and corporations but rugged capitalism
    for the regular people. If believing what I just said makes me a
    socialist than you can call me a socialist. The republicans are the
    biggest socialists ever-they just give the money to the already rich
    (1%). Don’t believe me do simple internet search. Look at scooters
    WEDC socialist welfare machine for businesses.

  • With time this “Comments” part became less and less about economy, and more about terror, the end of the world, the Apocalypse, and so forth. Come on guys, get back to your senses.

    We will go through an economic crash for sure, it is basically unavoidable (how, when, why, what… the future will tell soon enough). But, for heaven sake, stop thinking that the end of the world will come next month in a huge blood bath. I see more fear than logic and reason for the moment in the things I’m reading here.

    Also, for those who knows a little bit about their Bible, you then know that many elements are not in place yet for that end to happen. And neither Mark Biltz with his Blood Moon discovery, or Jonathan Cahn with his Harbinger and Shemita teaching said that the end will come now. They just attract the attention of the public that there are pattern we can not overlook and which may indicate something big to happen soon not necessary now…

    Living in fear will not help going through rough time in any case. And any soldier understand that fear paralyses and prevent good reaction to any problem…

    • I would like to add few things by the way.

      For those who do it, do you really think it is highly intelligent to boast or nearly shout about what you are doing now like “I’m buying this gun, and this ammo, and this weapon, and this and that” ?

      If, as some of you believe (rightly so I think) that Gov are surveying their citizens somehow, then you should also know that the same Gov have the biggest tool at its disposal to trace you from your comment on this blog (not difficult since nay basic hakers could do it – IP Address, MAC address, DNS, etc). So, if you are afraid of the TPTB why giving them knowledge of your whereabouts? Keep it for yourself.

        • G21

          Yes, your superior intelligence is very obvious.

          Another thing that’s obvious is that you have a low opinion of yourself, because you need to deride and insult so that you feel better – at the expense of others.

          Are you really that low?

      • G21

        I think you’re making a mistake by believing that the comments you describe are all about “fear”. They aren’t.
        Most people on here have been expecting some kind of collapse or catastrophe for a long time now – I’ve been seeing it coming myself since Obama took office.

        – Watching the government debase the currency, weaken our military, lower our world standing and trash our morals is what points to some calamity – not fear.
        – Reading that the entire world is engaging in some form of money printing shows me that trouble’s ahead – not fear.
        – Seeing the illegal manipulation of commodities, without consequences, indicates deep problems – not fear.
        – Watching the government stand by, welcoming millions of illegals into this country tells me we’re in trouble – not fear.

        And who said anything about standing against a sniper? You assume way too much.

        The people who see something coming are glad to have some sort of forum. It helps. But we aren’t afraid.

        You and the others who mock, accuse and criticize don’t have to stick around, you know.

        • — “I think you’re making a mistake by believing that the comments you describe are all about “fear” —
          When did I say “ALL” anywhere? read what I wrote and stop putting words which are not there. I did not say that ALL was about fear, I said that there is more and more about it. If you can not see it, then you have mud in your eyes when you read this blog.

    Bull markets do not last forever. What will the fed do when we are in another recession? As usual, what everyone is predicting will be the thing that does not happened. My thinking is we will see $20/barrel oil to spur demand before China, India, Canada, and Russia roll out their LFTR reactors which will significally reduce the demand for oil over the next 20 years. Of course the US will be the last major country to use LFTR technology.

    • df NJ

      “Work on LFTR is going on worldwide, with research being done in China, France, the Czech Republic, Japan, Russia, Canada, and the Netherlands. …. The U.S. may end up buying LFTRs from China. Perhaps WalMart will sell them cheap.”
