Unaffordable food and soaring health costs, worker shortage, and empty shelves at grocery stores. We just added another 1.2 TRILLION in debt and they are working up their next multi TRILLION dollar bill. The Department of Energy Secretary just admitted that heating oil will cost 50% more this winter. Good luck to those of you who heat your homes with oil. The middle class and poor people are being crushed by inflation. Inflation over the past twelve months surged to a 31 year high as rising prices undercut President Biden and hurt consumers despite evidence of US economy is rebounding from the pandemic.
His inability to handle the broken supply chain is inflationary.And planning on windmills, solar panels and EV charging ports that won’t be in effect until 2030+ also contributes to higher energy prices in 2022+. You don’t stop fossil fuel production until AFTER your alternative energy sources are fully functional and operational on a national scale. Rising inflation is coming. Of all the money ever pumped into the economy by the Federal Reserve, more than half of that amount was pushed in during the last 20 months.
The Fed has doubled its balance sheet since February 2022. During 2009 through 2014, the Fed added more than $2 trillion to the system, after adding very little during the 2000s. However, during 2015 through 2017 the Fed was flat, and during 2022 and 2023 the Fed actually removed some funds from the economy.
Horrible inflation across the board started in March, which is just around the time the supply chain started clogging up. The cost of energy,food, transportation, and other consumer goods has spiked. Free money has been handed out. Remember your house did not increase in value last year by 20%. Your dollar decreased in value by 20%. When money given has no backing (i.e. an hour worked, a product made) something, anything created, that dollar is worthless.
The Fed has been pumping TRILLIONS of dollars into the economy since the 2020 stock market crash, and then they wonder why inflation is up. Remember that’s EXACTLY when real estate started to take off into the stratosphere, and that hasn’t stopped since. Food prices also have been going up for a good 15 years, and if you really want a shock take a look at the price of your prescription drugs. The total cost, not the cost YOU pay. Amazon (vis-a-vis Wall Street) is paying the ports to BLOCK incoming shipments to break all of their competition domestically.
Whilst it is available on Amazon for $26, below my wholesale cost and readily available to ship. No supply problems for Amazon? Customers will not buy the product; they will be forced to purchase from Amazon as all the small retail business in the country is wiped out along with their mid-level suppliers, which were just a precursor to Amazons’ existence. The boats are being blocked from unloading so that all the corporate stores have products available while all the small independent retailers are going to get crushed. Everyone who didn’t get crushed by being forced to close is going to face serious stress as all the products are re-priced to prevent competition with Amazon.
Too many employers got rid of people they didn’t want because they were making too much money or were trouble but had a union behind them or their state laws protected them covid and war gave them the chance to lay them off knowing they won’t call them back and those laid off were working in the same jobs for decades and only knew how to do one thing, and other employers don’t want to spend money training at this time. In my area, I see employers trying to steal trained employees from other businesses just by offering more money and better benefits.
So what is going to happen? People will remortgage their houses and start working two jobs, use up their savings and dip into any money they can get their hands on in the next five years just to survive. I budget weekly and track my key spending monthly like credit, grocery, dining out, and gas. Every average has gone up a few hundred bucks across the board. The supply chain got jacked up because of Just-In-Time delivery systems. Saving is the avenue by which most were able to raise themselves up, get on their financial feet.
NOW IT IS THE SAVER THAT IS BEING PUNISHED And every force and factor that makes this so is by Federal Reserve INTENT. Zero return on savings……. .05% Fed Funds. Promoted inflation……15% . This is prearranged and intentional theft, taking from many to pump the assets of the few. AND WHO KNEW, who was confident and assured that the Fed would act in a fashion they have NEVER DONE BEFORE.
They ignore inflation.
In the history of the Fed, Fed funds would be raised to meet inflation. Manufactured inflation is a tool to hide other nefarious activities that The Power That Be are up to. That’s what is going on here. It gives a convenient excuse for all kinds of things people think are “just natural”. Although we have been assured for weeks now from liberal media sources and government economic “experts” that all the inflation is “transient” or “temporary”. I guess the government experts weren’t being all that truthful. Inflation is going to get much, much worse.
This has been building up for decades. A lot of this inflation is attributable to Biden policies. Thirteen months after the pandemic started, and after a decade of consistent low inflation, Joe signed his $1.9T covid relief bill in March 2021. A year later, in April, inflation jumped up to 15% . Spending too much by the government makes things go up. Stopping the pipeline made fuel prices go up. I don’t think the federal government needs to, nor should get involved in the stocking of store shelves for the holidays. They need to create a plan to balance the federal budget – a balanced budget will take care of inflationary pressure.
PRINTING TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND HANDING THAT OUT TO MILLIONS OF PEOPLE MAKES OUR CURRENCY WORTHLESS. HAVING A DEBT OF 30 TRILLION DOLLARS WITH NOTHING TO BACK IT UP BUT “THE FULL FAITH AND CREDIT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” WITH JOE BIDEN AT THE HELM MAKES OUR CURRENCY LAUGHABLE!
The Fed can do a Volker, raise rates, but it will have major implications, high unemployment, and some market crash. That is how the US system works, boom and bust. It’s a tough spot as businesses have grown so used to the low interest rates. Do we curb inflation by raising them and then risk stagflation? The pandemic is still here, and damage from it has yet to be felt in many places such as consumer debt. Raise taxes , cut military, and other spending and push down the debt.The time for easy money should slow, it’s time for some austerity.But can we cut the military when China is ramping theirs up? Raise taxes when they’re already too high?.
The Fed will do nothing.They’re going to destroy the dollar. If they increase interest rates significantly, it will crash the economy. We need to set a maximum permanent inflation rate for each year, say 2%. Stabilize our economy. And find a way to fund government obligations without taxes on our population. Inflation, no matter the number, is a bad thing. It erodes the value of your labor.
Trends Journal founder Gerald Celente who likes to call it as it is is now calling it the Greatest Depression. The financial media doesn’t acknowledge that our Shale Oil boom will go bust because the Shale Oil sector doesn’t make any money. Unfortunately, Mainstream Media has really little choice of putting out a positive news spin because if they did not, the masses would be frightened and revolt. We are NOW facing, and the odds keep growing that we might enter another Great Depression, and if we do, it will make 1929 seem and feel like good times. So in a sarcastic way, can we blame them for putting a positive spin on current events. We are repeating the same thing we just saw in 2008, 2009.
The too big to fail saved from the debt man’s noose. While sheep peasant citizen was packing their belongings into the trunk, house gone, job gone.
1. The banks and hedge funds and private equity funds have been saved. They are the ones buying the market up.
2. Small business is going to get crushed.
3. The gig economy and commission sales are going to get crushed.
4. Employees are going to get crushed.
5. Nancy and Chucky are taking this opportunity to run Coup part 1.
6. HRC and Cuomo and Biden are up to no good – if they lose, they are going to run Coup Part 2.
7. The Democrats mean to run the clock down until November.
8. The RINOs will continue to rob banks until there is nothing left to steal – they are going to strip mine the country the way the Bolshevists did the Soviet Union.
Prepare for this House Arrest to continue for many months.
Prepare for massive economic dislocation.
Prepare for massive supply chain dislocation. If we are expecting the people who created this crisis to solve it, then we richly deserve the calamitous outcome.
Ten million Americans declared unemployment in two weeks, and all your government does is give you a $1,200 advance on your tax return while bailing out corporations with the largest wealth transfer ever, and some of you are still shrieking about Russia and China. Your rights are evaporating. Your government has failed to provide the bare minimum social safety nets during a very manageable pandemic. Your nation’s billionaire class has been growing wealthier and wealthier while most of you would struggle to pay a $1000 emergency bill. The Peasant sheep need to realize you are watching a magic show. They need to pump enough money into the stock market to give the vast majority of people the illusion that their savings (money) are secure. When in fact that it’s not. These large funds which are being supported also have large exposure to Mortgage-backed securities and Commercial property loans that will be going bad.
The magician has gone all chips in betting that at the right moment, they can release the Peasant Sheep, and the economy will fire right back up. Then when sheep peasant is again dumping payroll money into the market, they can slowly liquidate their positions. Where I believe they have made an error is they look at people and society through their Ivory tower lens. People will get out, but their spending isn’t going to come back to what The magicians are anticipating, by a long shot.
That’s what’s going to break this damn bubble. George Carlin once said: It’s a big club and you ain’t in it. “But there’s a reason. There’s a reason. There’s a reason for this, there is a reason education sucks, and it’s the same reason that it will never, ever, ever be fixed. It’s never gonna get any better. Don’t look for it. Be happy with what you got because the owners of this country don’t want that. I’m talking about the real owners now, the real owners, the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians.
The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the senate, the congress, the statehouses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets, and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying, lobbying, to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want: They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests.
That’s right. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table to figure out how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 damn years ago. They don’t want that. Do you know what they want? They want obedient workers. Obedient workers. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork, and just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it, and now they’re coming for your Social Security money.
But what will happen when the next great financial crash happens and trillions of dollars of “paper wealth” disappear into thin air? What will happen when the coming credit crunch causes economic activity to dramatically slow down and millions upon millions of people lose their jobs? This shouldn’t sound far-fetched to you. Remember, this is exactly the kind of thing that we saw back in 2008, and the next great financial crisis is likely going to be significantly worse. Our economy is in far worse shape than it was back in 2008, and government dependence is now at an all-time high even though most Americans are still enjoying debt-fueled false prosperity.
We are living in the largest debt bubble in the history of the planet, and when it bursts we are going to experience a crippling “adjustment” to our standard of loving. Some people understand this and are busy preparing for what is ahead. Unfortunately, most Americans are not preparing for the coming economic depression and they are going to bitterly regret it.
Proof They Will Start Dollar Collapse & Martial Law
What is martial law?If you’re looking for a definition, then Martial Law basically means using state or national force to enforce the will of the government on the people. It basically allows the government, or a tyrannical politician, to shred the and impose its will through force.
History of of America“Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it.”
The U.S. dollar replaced the British Pound Sterling as the world’s reserve currency around 1945. It occurred for a number of reasons. The U.S. economy was the global leader in manufacturing and held the majority of the world’s gold. According to sources I’ve read, the dollar was the only currency still backed by gold (there was a downside to this). Of course they would love to explain that these specialist’s expertise would be used in other regions of the planet, and as you all know, the isn’t allowed to operate in the United States. If this is the case, then why the sudden need to recruit so many more?
As you’ll soon see, just about anything could lead to a state of Martial Law. In today’s environment, it won’t take much. In a previous post titled, Biden Warns: Be Ready For EMP Attacks, martial law dollar update,Engineered Pandemics, Massive.
Biden took time out of his extremely busy schedule to deliver an address at the FEMA where he made a point to stress that Americans who are not preparing for, or who do not have plans for any given scenario, could find themselves in big trouble in the near future.”One of the things that we have learned over the course of the last seven and a half years is that government plays a vital role, but it is every citizen’s responsibility to be prepared . And that means taking proactive steps, like having an plan, having a fully stocked supply kit. If your local authorities ask you to evacuate, you have to do it. Don’t wait.”
1 An Emergency Fund
Do you remember what happened when the financial system almost collapsed back in 2008? Millions of Americans suddenly lost their jobs, and because many of them were living paycheck to paycheck, many of them also got behind on their mortgages and lost their homes. You don’t want to lose everything that you have worked for during this next major economic downturn. It is imperative that you have an emergency fund. It should be enough to cover all of your expenses for at least six months, but I would encourage you to have an emergency fund that is even larger than that.
2 Don’t Put All Of Your Eggs Into One Basket
If the wealth confiscation in Cyprus has taught us anything, it is that we should not put all of our eggs in one basket. If all of your money is in one single bank account, it would be easy to wipe out. But if you have your money scattered around a number of different places it will give you a little bit more security.
3 Keep Some Cash At Home
This goes along with the previous point. While it is not wise to keep all of your money at home, you do want to keep some cash on hand. If there is an extended bank holiday or if a giant burst from the sun causes the ATM machines to go down, you want to be able to have enough cash to buy the things that your family needs. Just ask the people of Cyprus how crippling a bank holiday can be. One way to keep your cash secure at home is by storing it in a concealed safe.
4 Get Out Of Debt
A lot of people seem to assume that an economic collapse would wipe out all debts, but that will probably not be the case. In fact, if you are in a tremendous amount of debt you will be very vulnerable if the economy collapses and you are not able to find a job. Just ask the people who were overextended and lost their jobs during the last recession. So please get out of debt. Many debt collectors are becoming increasingly ruthless. In many areas of the country they are now routinely putting debtors into prison. You do not want to be a slave to debt when the next wave of the economic collapse strikes.
5 Gold And Silver
In the long-term, the U.S. dollar is going to lose a tremendous amount of value and inflation is going to absolutely skyrocket. That is one reason why so many people are investing very heavily in gold, silver and other precious metals. All over the globe, the central banks of the world are recklessly printing money. Everyone knows that this is going to end very badly. In fact, there is already a push in more than a dozen U.S. states to allow gold and silver coins to be used as legal tender. Someday you will be glad that you invested in gold and silver now while their prices were still low.
6 Reduce Your Expenses
A lot of people claim that they can’t put any money toward prepping, but the truth is that we all have room to reduce our expenses. We all spend money on things that we do not really need. Those that are “lean and mean” will tend to do much better during the times that are coming.
7 Start A Side Business
If you do not have much money, a great way to increase your income is by starting a side business. And it does not take a lot of money – there are many side businesses that you can start for next to nothing. And starting a side business will allow you to become less dependent on your job. In this economic environment, a job could disappear at literally any time.
8 Move Away From The Big Cities If Possible
For many people, this is simply not possible. Many Americans are still completely and totally dependent on their jobs. But if you are able, now is a good time to move away from the big cities. When the next major economic downturn strikes, there will be rioting and a dramatic rise in crime in the major cities. If you are able to move to a more rural area you will probably be in much better shape.
9 Store Food
Global food reserves have reached their lowest level in nearly 40 years. As the economy gets even worse and global weather patterns become even more unstable, the price of food will go much higher and global food supplies will become much tighter. In the long run, you will be glad for the money that you put into long-term food storage now.
10 Learn To Grow Your Own Food
This is a skill that most Americans possessed in the past, but that most Americans today have forgotten. Growing your own food is a way to become more independent of the system, and it is a way to get prepared for what is ahead.
Homesteading is the only (legal) way I know of to become almost completely self-reliant from the food corporations, the utilities companies, the Government and Big Pharma… by harvesting hundreds upon hundreds of dolars of organic food year-round, and collecting thousands of gallons of crystal-clear drinking water for free…
To take back your health by growing your own groceries, and making your own food out of basic ingredients, such as cheese, bread and even chocolate to name a few…
Then you could stockpile the excess produce for dark days… (The shelf life of ingredients is longer than that of the resulting foods, anyway…) So while other preppers pay thousands for overpriced, highly-processed “emergency food”, you’ll build your survival stockpile for free…
It’ll be like having your own personal supermarket just a few feet away from you… Though not the kind that sells processed meat full of hormones and steroids, veggies full of pesticides that have absolutely no taste at all, not to mention and all the other junk full of preservatives…
11 Nobody Can Survive Without Water
Without water, you would not even make it a few days in an emergency situation. It is imperative that you have a plan to provide clean drinking water for your family when disaster strikes.
12 Have A Plan For When The Grid Goes Down
What would you do if the grid went down and you suddenly did not have power for an extended period of time? Anyone that has spent more than a few hours without power knows how frustrating this can be. You need to have a plan for how you are going to provide power to your home that is independent of the power company.
Protect your home or business with a new fully automatic standby generator. Maintain your security system, lighting and air conditioning to keep your family or business safe and comfortable through any power outage
Enjoy the total peace of mind that comes with knowing you have a constant and reliable power supply for your home or business in with a standby generator from Alternate Power Solutions. From everyday necessities like heating, cooling, refrigeration and lights, to daily essentials like cooking, laundry or kids bath times. Power outages are occurring more frequently than ever and lasting longer with devastating effects.
Stand up to unpredictable weather and unforeseen outages with the most trusted name in residential standby power with backup generators for homes. If the power ever goes out, your General standby generator goes on – automatically – protecting you and your home 24/7.
13 Have Blankets And Warm Clothing On Hand
This is more for emergency situations or for a complete meltdown of society. During any major crisis, blankets and warm clothing are in great demand. They also could potentially make great barter items.
14 Store Personal Hygiene Supplies
A lot of preppers store up huge amounts of food, but they forget all about personal hygiene supplies. During a long crisis, these are items that you would greatly miss if you do not have them stored up. These types of supplies would also be great for barter.
15 Store Medicine And Medical Supplies
You will also want to store up medical supplies and any medicine that you may need. In an emergency situation, you definitely would not want to be without bandages and a first-aid kit. Over the course of a long crisis, you do not want to run out of any medicines that are critical for your health.
16 Stock Up On Vitamins
A lot of preppers do not think about this either, but it is very important. These days, it is becoming increasingly difficult to get adequate nutrition from the foods that we eat. That is why it is very important to have an adequate store of vitamins and other supplements.
17 Make A List Of Other Supplies That You Will Need
During any crisis, there will be a lot of other things that you will need in addition to food and water. The following are just a few basic things that it would be wise to have on hand…– an axe– a can opener– flashlights– battery-powered radio– extra batteries– lighters or matches– fire extinguisher– sewing kit– toolsThis list could be much, much longer, but hopefully this will get you started.
18 Don’t Forget The Special Needs Of Your Babies And Your Pets
Young children and pets have special needs. As you store supplies, don’t forget about the things that they will need as well.
This may sound trivial, but the truth is that our entertainment-addicted society would become very bored and very frustrated if the grid suddenly went down for an extended period of time. Card games and other basic forms of entertainment can make enduring a crisis much easier.
In the years ahead, being able to defend your home and your family is going to become increasingly important. When the economy crashes, people are going to start to become very desperate. And desperate people do desperate things.
.#21 Get Your Ammunition
While You Still CanYour firearms will not do you much good if you do not have ammunition for them. Already there are widespread reports of huge ammunition shortages. The following is from a recent CNS News article…“The run on ammunition has manufacturers scrambling to accommodate demand and reassure customers, as many new and seasoned gun owners stock up over fears of new firearms regulations at both the state and federal levels.”Don’t just assume that you will always be able to purchase large amounts of ammunition whenever you want. Get it now while you still can.
Books can be your best pre-collapse investment.
