Almost 50 million people have been forcibly unemployed. Their jobs are GONE. Their lives are GONE. They’re about to lose everything. Pillaging and plundering destroy our potential, and after days of this, the rioters may return home to the same. It is a lousy future. No businesses, no taxes and no soup for you because the trucks stopped delivering, Food will be scarce. Lines are down, so nobody knows where to find any. Starvation is on the horizon. The riots have killed what little hope of recovering quickly that may have existed. The riots are a watershed moment for many; few will be able to just go back to work and forget what happened/is happening. The producers in this system have been exposed to the true evil of the eaters.
Their government failed/continues to fail to protect them. Why would any continue to participate at this point? We’ve seen the rubble and trash riot for the past week. That’s bad enough. But sadly, we’re approaching a time when decent, hard-working men who’ve had their lives financially and psychologically destroyed will start “going off.” There’s a horrible scenario waiting to be played out in America. All due to the greed of a corrupt and morally bankrupt elite. The world will become a very sterile and boring place. You take away the office space, restaurants, shopping malls, clubs, what do you have left? What kind of culture do you have? And all the people who used to work in these businesses, what are they to do! I find what’s going on to be very disturbing and shortsighted, ultimately creating a very gray society with no community, a lot of loneliness, and a lot of poverty.
I stated in this article that an “imminent disaster.US stock markets”, and that “people seem to have forgotten one central and critical point. Most people seem to believe that they have to lose a great deal of money when crises materialize and forget that it is absolutely possible to prosper during crises as well.
Thus, because they feel they must suffer during a crisis, the ‘shoot the messenger of bad news’ syndrome commences.
Now that the US markets have traded between a range for several days, the mass media is bombarding everyone again with a “it’s a great time to buy more US stocks!” narrative that will prove to be poison to any retail investor foolish enough to swallow these sales pitches.
If you don’t understand how Central and Commercial bankers are manipulating these markets to manufacture “up” days to grant the appearance of market recovery amidst great structural fragility, then I recommend that you visit a lot of the referenced links in this article, where you can find a lot of detailed information and analysis about how bankers manufacture these illusions with manipulated rigging. To allocate any of the money you earn on the basis of empty banker promises of higher asset prices without understanding the risk-reward metrics of doing so is NO strategy at all, but instead a risky proposition based entirely on hope.
According to Rickards, the next crisis will likely be a continuation of the 1998 hedge fund collapse and the 2008 banking collapse. He estimates that it will occur around 2023 – 2024.
As Rickards explains, the ’90s were a period of risk and instability for hedge funds. Eventually, Wall Street had to bail out hedge fund managers. Then, in 2008, central banks had to bail out Wall Street.
In both instances, global financial markets nearly ground to a halt. They were rescued at the last minute by government and banking interventions. And the underlying problems that cause these crises were never solved.
Is It Over for the US Dollar? – SPECIAL EPISODE – Robert Kiyosaki, Andy Schectman
The US stock market crash.
After an initial period when the US stock markets sold down by about 17%. Shortly after this initial strong sell-off, the market actually rose slightly for several weeks, invoking the perpetual salesmen employed by global investment firms to declare that the correction was over and that it was time to start buying US stocks again. This is the period I’ve circled in green above. After many were lured backed into the US stock markets, they finally crashed hard in October. If you look at the US stock market selloff to this point today, I believe that we are currently in that period , a period of relative calm before a stronger, more devastating dive occurs.
‘Listen Up! The Financial Elite Will Soon Prevent You Accessing Your Own Money!’
I have warned for a long time that the Federal Reserve is planning to destroy the U.S. economy by: printing the U.S. dollar in exponentially riskier quantities until it blows off the charts and crashes, and by easing credit and rates until the average individual and corporate debt loads are so enormous that the resulting massive distortions in the economy suddenly bring on an economic heart attack, leaving no possibility of a short or even medium-term recovery. That day is here!
That time has arrived. Evidence Indicates The USA’s Plug Has Been Recently Been Pulled Suddenly, in only the last two weeks, the warnings are flooding out of high finance like a burst dam. The message is clear for those who have ears to hear, for these warnings are all from the same inner circle: it can only mean someone has given the order to release the hordes of hell and go in for the kill. Some of these items listed below are reactions from the elite to save themselves and warn their friends.
Other items are legal and political actions to remove any hindrance or safeguard which heretofore inhibited a sudden and massive implosion. Keeping in mind that this overwhelming avalanche of dire events occurred over mere days, here is the list: Russia announces anti-dollar war. Last week Russia announced it is now anti-dollar, Russia & socialist partner Germany discussed switching out of dollars and into euros for financing and, more importantly, conduct their huge oil transactions in euros, not dollars. No less than Duisenberg, head of the socialist European Central Bank (partner of the anti-American Federal Reserve) agreed, as did Communist Russia’s partner, German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, in a recent meeting.
We are living in the greatest debt bubble in the history of the world, the global banking system has been transformed into a high-risk pyramid scheme of debt, risk and leverage that could cause an economic collapse at any time, and wealthy countries such as the United States have been living way above their means for decades.
Fortunately, I have found that an increasing number of Americans are becoming convinced that we are heading for a horrific economic collapse. Once they come to that realization, they want to know what they should do before the next stock market crash and financial collapse. In addition, it is important to distinguish between the “short-term” and the “long-term” when talking about economic collapse.
As I have written about previously, our economic collapse is not going to happen all at once. It is going to unfold over time. In the “short-term”, many are moving money around and are building up “emergency funds” to prepare for the next major stock market crash and recession. For the “long-term”, many are storing up food and huge stockpiles of survival supplies in order to be prepared for the total collapse of society.
Self-Reliance Is Key
The biggest hurdle of the Great Depression was a simple one: lives changed drastically – and they changed fast. Americans went from the lavish roaring twenties, where elegance and jazzy splendor perfused the nation, to scrubbing out a meager existence.
Those who survived it were never the same. They stockpiled more. They reused more and shopped for bargains, not luxuries. They fully understood that a trip to the grocery store may be the last for a very long time.
That’s the biggest lesson learned from surviving the Great Depression: Self-Reliance skills are essential to get you through the harsh times. The survival skills that our modern world has since lost.
It’s time we discover them again.
So, what do you do?
Here is the scenario. “Government agencies are having difficulty making their payments. State governments are issuing vouchers to pay their bills. US Social Security is late in issuing its payments to retirees and the disabled. Many banks are issuing warnings about liquidity. The prices of food are escalating by the hour. Instead of talking about the latest inane reality TV show, everyone is talking about inflation, money, mass layoffs, etc. It is 5 days before the economic collapse.” So, what do you do?
Our current recession/depression is slow creeping at this point towards a bad outcome. Although I believe US and Canada are still 3 to 5 years away from an economic collapse, I woefully believe that the collapse is coming. Euro will collapse first. Greece,Italy, China and Spain have already collapsed. Italy and Portugal are soon to collapse next. Having this insight, I have been preparing vigorously for the past 2 years.
During these past 2 years, I have often thought about what the last 5 days would look like before a collapse. Because governments will do everything and anything to delay the onset of an economic collapse, as they should, I believe the problem will build to a dramatic point, where the economy will fall off a ledge very quickly. With the US Federal Government running $1 trillion dollar deficits for the past 3 years, how long can that continue? As some point in time, no foreign government or domestic entity will want to buy US Federal debt.
Then the only option is for the US Federal Reserve to generate artificial money, not backed by tax revenues nor by any tangible assets, in order for the Fed to buy US Federal debt. At some point in time, the continual injection of fiat currencies will trigger a hyper-inflation period. At that point in time, the spiral towards economic collapse will accelerate.
There are 5 key foods that should be part of every long-term food storage plan.
1# Wheat — Properly stored, wheat has the best long-term storage potential for common foods. Hard Red Wheat berries have a 30+ storage life. Be store to store the pre-ground wheat, which are called wheat berries. Once ground into flour, it last only about one year. Soft red wheat berries stores up to 20 years. The white soft and hard wheat berries stores for 10 or less years. For your critical long-term preps, stick with hard red wheat. Be sure to have a wheat grind on hand, so that may flour from the stored wheat berries. If you allergic to wheat, consider oats or quinoa instead.
2# Salt — This is not so much a food, but rather an essential mineral needed by your body. If kept dry and sealed, salt has an endless storage life. I store two types of salt. Pure salt, or often called canning salt, has no iodine. I reserve the canning salt for food preservation. Before refrigeration, meat, fish and cheese were storable due to salt preservation. And I store several pounds of salt with iodine added for cooking and table usage. Salt is an item that is often overlooked in food storage. Yet is has so many usage and is vital to good health. Both too much and too little salt is bad for your health.
3# Sugar (or honey) — Pure white sugar and honey, if properly stored, never expires. Keep sugar in a sealed container, and it never goes bad. For more preps, I storeDomino’s sugar that is already pre-sealed in 4 pound plastic canisters. Honey is best stored in glass jars in a cool, dark place. If honey crystallizes over time, just warm it a bit to become fluid again. Honey has a lot of micro-nutrients, and is my preferred way to store sugar for the long-term. Occasionally, my local drug store, CVS, has the Dominos 4 pound canisters on sale or I might buy with CVS extra-bucks.
4# Rice — White rice, if sealed in cans with oxygen absorbers, can have a 20 year storage life. Brown rice has a storage life of around 5 years. White rice is simply brown rice with the husk removed. Brown rice has more flavor and more nutrition. But white rice stores longer, since the husk of brown rice has small amounts of oil within that go bad much quicker. What I like about storing rice is the amount of dense calories it provides. Rice is easier to prepare versus grinding wheat berries. A cups of white rice plus of vegetables from your garden makes a filling meal. Many people don’t realize the rice has some protein. Rice combined with beans provides all the protein your body needs.
5# Powdered milk — If you have children, this is a key food to store. Regular powdered milk has a shelf life of 2 years. If packed in meal cans by a reliable vendor, powdered milk can be stored for 5 or more years. Fat free powdered milk stores a bit long. Most baking recipes call for milk, of which powdered milk is an adequate substitute.
Books can be your best pre-collapse investment.
