11 Facts That Prove That The U.S. Economy In 2017 Is In Far Worse Shape Than It Was In 2016

By Michael Snyder

There is much debate about where the U.S. economy is ultimately heading, but what everybody should be able to agree on is that economic conditions are significantly worse this year than they were last year.  It is being projected that U.S. economic growth for the first quarter will be close to zero, thousands of retail stores are closing, factory output is falling, and restaurants and automakers have both fallen on very hard times.  As economic activity has slowed down, commercial and consumer bankruptcies are both rising at rates that we have not seen since the last financial crisis.  Everywhere you look there are echoes of 2008, and yet most people still seem to be in denial about what is happening.  The following are 11 facts that prove that the U.S. economy in 2017 is in far worse shape than it was in 2016…

#1 It is being projected that there will be more than 8,000 retail store closings in the United States in 2017, and that will far surpass the former peak of 6,163 store closings that we witnessed in 2008.

#2 The number of retailers that have filed for bankruptcy so far in 2017 has already surpassed the total for the entire year of 2016.

#3 So far in 2017, an astounding 49 million square feet of retail space has closed down in the United States.  At this pace, approximately 147 million square feet will be shut down by the end of the year, and that would absolutely shatter the all-time record of 115 million square feet that was shut down in 2001.

#4 The Atlanta Fed’s GDP Now model is projecting that U.S. economic growth for the first quarter of 2017 will come in at just 0.5 percent.  If that pace continues for the rest of the year, it will be the worst year for U.S. economic growth since the last recession.

#5 Restaurants are experiencing their toughest stretch since the last recession, and in March things continued to get even worse

Foot traffic at chain restaurants in March dropped 3.4% from a year ago. Menu prices couldn’t be increased enough to make up for it, and same-store sales fell 1.1%. The least bad region was the Western US, where sales inched up 1.2% year-over-year and traffic fell only 1.7%, according to TDn2K’s Restaurant Industry Snapshot. The worst was the NY-NJ Region, where sales plunged 4.6% and foot traffic 6.3%.

This comes after a dismal February, when foot traffic had dropped 5% year-over-year, and same-store sales 3.7%.

#6 In March, U.S. factory output declined at the fastest pace in more than two years.

#7 According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, not a single person is employed in nearly one out of every five U.S. families.

#8 U.S. government revenues just suffered their biggest drop since the last recession.

#9 Nearly all of the big automakers reported disappointing sales in March, and dealer inventories have now risen to the highest level that we have seen since the last recession.

#10 Used vehicle prices are absolutely crashing, and subprime auto loan losses have shot up to the highest level that we have seen since the last recession.

#11 At this point, most U.S. consumers are completely tapped out.  According to CNN, almost six out of every ten Americans do not have enough money saved to even cover a $500 emergency expense.

Just like in 2008, debts are going bad at a very alarming pace.  In fact, things have already gotten so bad that the IMF has issued a major warning about it

In America alone, bad debt held by companies could reach $4 trillion, “or almost a quarter of corporate assets considered,” according to the IMF. That debt “could undermine financial stability” if mishandled, the IMF says.

The percentage of “weak,” “vulnerable” or “challenged” debt held as assets by US firms has almost arrived at the same level it was right before the 2008 crisis.

We are seeing so many parallels to the last financial crisis, and many are hoping that our politicians in Washington can fix things before it is too late.

On Monday, the most critical week of Trump’s young presidency begins.  The administration will continue working on tax reform and a replacement for Obamacare, but of even greater importance is the fact that if a spending agreement is not passed by Friday a government shutdown will begin at the end of the week

Trump has indicated that he wants to tackle the repeal and replacement of Obamacare and introduce his “massive” tax plan in the next week, all while a shutdown of parts of federal government looms Friday.

By attempting three massive political undertakings in one week, investors will have a sense of whether or not Trump will be able to deliver on pro-growth policies that would be beneficial for markets.

If Trump can pull off the trifecta, it could restore faith that policy proposals like tax cuts and infrastructure spending are on the way. If not, look out.

Members of Congress are returning from their extended two week spring vacation, and now they will only have four working days to get something done.

And I don’t believe that they will be able to rush something through in just four days.  The Republicans in Congress, the Democrats in Congress, and the Trump administration all want different things, and ironing out all of those differences is not going to be easy.

For example, the Trump administration is insisting on funding for a border wall, and the Democrats are saying no way.  The following comes from the Washington Post

President Trump and his top aides applied new pressure Sunday on lawmakers to include money for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border in a must-pass government funding bill, raising the possibility of a federal government shutdown this week.

In a pair of tweets, Trump attacked Democrats for opposing the wall and insisted that Mexico would pay for it “at a later date,” despite his repeated campaign promises not including that qualifier. And top administration officials appeared on Sunday morning news shows to press for wall funding, including White House budget director Mick Mulvaney, who said Trump might refuse to sign a spending bill that does not include any.

And of course the border wall is just one of a whole host of controversial issues that are standing in the way of an agreement.  Those that are suggesting that all of these issues will be resolved in less than 100 hours are being completely unrealistic.  And even though the Trump administration is putting on a brave face, the truth is that quiet preparations for a government shutdown have already begun.

The stage is being set for the kind of nightmare crisis that I portrayed in The Beginning Of The End.  The stock market bubble is showing signs of being ready to burst, and an extended government shutdown would be more than enough to push things over the edge.

Let us hope that this government shutdown is only for a limited period of time, because an extended shutdown could potentially be catastrophic.  In the end, either the Trump administration or the Democrats are going to have to give in on issues such as funding for Obamacare, the border wall, Planned Parenthood, defense spending increases, etc.

It will be a test of the wills, and it will be absolutely fascinating to see who buckles under the pressure first.

Joe Joseph Warns: “There Will Be Major Changes… Hell, We Could See a Civil War … As Hard As It is to Envision.”

By Mac Slavo

The Daily Caller reports that an English professor at the Northern Arizona University lowered the grade of one of her students who used the word “mankind” in an essay. According to Dr. Anne Scott, who runs a class about the human condition, docked the score because she says that students need to “respect the need for gender-neutral language:

“I would be negligent, as a professor who is running a class about the human condition and the assumptions we make about being ‘human,’ if I did not also raise this issue of gendered language and ask my students to respect the need for gender-neutral language,” said Scott. “The words we use matter very much, or else teachers would not be making an issue of this at all, and the MLA would not be making recommendations for gender-neutral language at the national level.”

This is just another sign of the times; a serious warning, according to Joe Joseph.

As Joseph highlights at The Daily Sheeple Youtube Channel, the reason for the push into gender neutral language goes much deeper than some leftist equality narrative:

It’s because the people who control the public education apparatus – basically institutionalizing our children – are intentionally doing this to blur the lines… why?

We don’t want manly men doing manly things… no… we want wussified people… we want controllable people…

Mankind is very much a word… it’s very much a term.. you can find it in the dictionary… why can’t we use that?

Oh, because it may hurt somebody’s feelings… I can see where we’re going here as a nation.

Watch as Joe Joseph explains how the masses are being dumbed down with such strategies and how the system will soon put them to use.

(Watch At Youtube)

When we’ve reached a point in our country where wearing red, white and blue is considered blatant racism and asking teachers to verify that they know how to read is called bigotry, then it should be clear we have a serious problem.

With warmer weather upon us, Joseph warns that things could get very hectic, very fast, especially now that we know leaders on the left, including the media, are prepared to support and use violence to achieve their goals.

We’re out of time… I firmly believe this is the year… This is the line in the sand… The point of no return…  If we don’t do something drastic this year to improve things in this country I guarantee you there will be major changes… hell, we could see a civil war… as hard as it is to envision.

Collapsing Pensions Are “About to Bring Hell to America”

By Mac Slavo

The toxic dollar is bringing hell in a handbasket.

Along with the student loan debt bubble and other major financial factors, the looming pensions crisis is bound to be the death of us all.

Because it’s based on a future promise to pay, it has long been a benefit dangled to solve strikes and union disputes – because, in the end, it is just more debt, whether private or public.

With tens of trillions in unfunded liabilities, the weight of an avalanche remains dangling over our heads. An aging population is cashing in on needed retirement benefits while the younger generations must support multiples that are unsustainable financially.

Somewhere between the retiree that needs clothing, food and lodging, and the bankruptcy of cities and state governments is the makings of the next economic crisis.

via AgainstCronyCapitalism.org:

This is one of those things that few will pay attention to until it’s a 5 alarm fire. Then the policymakers will run around with their hands in the air saying they didn’t see it coming.

Of course they did. But addressing the problem is hard and will make people unhappy in the short term.

This blog pointed out the sad, and quiet fact that entities like the government of South Carolina are deep in debt over pensions. Everywhere there are failing social systems.

And somewhere, the rubber is going to met the road, and people are going to get hurt.

As SHTF previously reported:

In 2014 a new Federal law made it possible for pension funds to cut benefits for their recipients.

In October of [2015] the canary in the coal mine fell over and died when Illinois announced that the State was posting pension payments because it ran out of money.

Fast forward a few more months and things have been taken to the next level. The Central State pension fund in Kansas became the first such fund to take advantage of the 2014 law as 400,000 Americans who depend on their monthly pension income to pay for such things as their mortgage, groceries and medical expenses saw an average of $1,400 per month sliced of their monthly benefits.

Unfortunately, there may be no avoiding some very painful lapses in checks in the difficult years ahead.

As Market Watch reports:

But take a look South Carolina’s government pension plan, which covers roughly 550,000 people — one out of nine state residents — but is a staggering $24.1 billion in the red.

This is not a distant concern, but a system already in crisis.

Younger workers are being asked to do much more to support the pensions of retirees. An analysis by the The Post and Courier of Charleston noted recently that “Government workers and their employers have seen five hikes in their pension plan contributions since 2012, and there’s no end in sight.” (Most now contribute 8.66% of their pay, vs. 6.5% before the changes.) At the same time, the pension fund has been chasing more stocks and alternative investments instead of relying on stable investments like bonds that may be much less volatile but generate only meager returns.

And if that’s not troubling enough, South Carolina’s pension fund is far from alone.

Yeah.

California’s Calpers public retriree system is notoriously underfunded and doomed to implode. Chicago, Detroit and other urban wastelands are sagging under abysmal debt. Dallas, Texas pensions went insolvent. Puerto Rico is nothing but a propped up holding corp(se).

Something massive has been swept up just under the carpet.

More Signs That the Great Collapse Is Upon Us. Take This 10 Survival Items That Sell out After a Crisis!

By Pat Henry

It could be your worst nightmare. A disaster happens and for some reason, you aren’t prepared at all. In a panic, you drive to the local store only to rush through the front doors and see row upon row of empty shelves. The survival items you need are gone, already picked over with nothing left except items of no practical use to you like cake decorating icing and gift cards.

Scenes like this happen all the time to people all over the world, but as preppers your job is to make sure it doesn’t happen to you. Your family should be preparing well in advance of any potential disaster and we have many posts that outline simple steps you can take now to be more prepared in the future. But let’s just play along with the scenario above.

If you had only one chance to make it to the store, what items would disappear first? If you were in a race with your neighbors to get anything you could before the stock was gone, which items would you need to throw into your shopping basket?

Items that sell out after a crisis

In a lot of ways, the crisis will dictate to some degree which items sell fastest, but we can imagine that in every crisis, power will be off. This fact dictates most of what will appear in the list below. I want to go over each item and give my reasoning for why you should have these items now or in some cases, what you can have on-hand as an alternative so that you aren’t that guy staring at an empty store wondering how you can use shoe laces in a survival situation.

Generators

A backup source of power is not something most of us think about (before we prepped anyway) until we hear that eerie sound of silence when every electric device connected to the wall goes dead. In my house, I have backup batteries on my computers so as soon as the lights go out, the fridge stops running and any ancillary devices stop, I begin to hear an annoying beep. That beep is telling me I only have about 10 minutes before my computer shuts off to save any work, but it also signals that we are no longer connected to the power grid in a meaningful way.

Generator sales always peak after a disaster and I have heard stories of people fighting in parking lots over them. The day the hurricane rolls into your town is not the day to try to go to the big home improvement store and get a generator because it is likely too late. If you think you need backup power for emergencies, set aside time and budget now to get a model that will work for you. Most generators will not power your entire home, but a decent sized portable generator can power several lights, charge devices or one to two small appliances. These are great for just the essentials to keep you going. But you should ensure you have plenty of fuel on hand also.

Alternative: In lieu of a generator, you can use a power inverter and your car’s engine to do the same thing. You may even use less fuel and will certainly cause less noise.

Extension cords

So, you have a fancy generator running outside but you need to connect your devices to it. Extension cords are always in short supply after a disaster because people forget they need to get power to the other end of their home or across the street to a neighbor’s house. A few 50 to 100 feet medium duty extension cords will help you bring the power into areas and away from the noise of the generator.

Weather Radios

When the TV is out and so is the internet, people naturally revert to the good old radio for information, entertainment and comfort. A weather radio is usually purchased because most like the Eton FRX3 Hand Crank NOAA AM/FM Weather Alert Radio have a crank that you can use to power the unit instead of batteries. This will ensure you can listen to local broadcasts or even emergency weather alerts without the need for power. Well, you supply the power.

Batteries

Speaking of batteries, it’s good to do two things ahead of any disaster. First, standardize on a common battery size now. I prefer AA for most of my devices that take batteries. My radios, headlamps, flashlights all use AA. The second thing is to have plenty of batteries on hand before you need them. I have purchased a couple of the 48-packs of batteries and stored them away for emergencies. These are not kept with the battery supply that is dipped into for game controllers and toys for visiting children.

Alternative: Use rechargeable batteries and a solar charger to keep your supply fresh. Even the best batteries will die eventually so rechargeables are a longer running option.

Candles

Candles are a grid-down staple that can be used for other things beside light.  You can heat a room or cook with them if you have the right set up. They aren’t a perfect solution because I would still rather have a headlamp than a candle, especially to prevent fires but they do have their place. Funny, if you watch the walking dead apparently, they each have about 10 dozen with them at all times. Candles are your back-up’s backup.

Industrial fans

When the power goes out, a fan can be one of those conveniences that saves a lot of time and trouble besides just bringing a breeze. After hurricane’s Katrina and Sandy, industrial fans were used to dry out carpet before mold set in. In the summer time, they could cool a decent sized room too and keep things from overheating. Now, you are going to have to justify using the gas you have stored for a fan, but in some cases, these are sold out quickly. I can imagine how nice they would be in a hot Florida or Mississippi August.

Gasoline cans

What are you going to carry that gas in that you are standing in line for hours to get? Along with decreased or non-existent fuel supplies, having an appropriate container for transport is often overlooked. Your car is out of gas or more likely you don’t want to use gas to get to the store so you will need several fuel cans to cart any fuel you can obtain. Additionally, a yard wagon to haul 4 of these or more at a time (provided rationing will allow it) might be a good idea also.

Flashlights/Lanterns

Most home have some version of a flashlight around for emergencies. My dad had several strategically placed at my home growing up and I have followed suite to a large degree. You never realize just how many flashlights you need when the power goes out and it’s pitch black. I would add a decent headlamp to this list for everyone in the family because I think they are superior for working hands free. Lanterns are great for powering a room like the kitchen when we all sit down to a nice meal of freshly grilled venison steaks that were going to go bad in the freezer. We can use the lantern to have enough light to see each other and eat with and not spend the batteries in other devices. I have a couple of battery-powered lanterns (little to no heat and zero risk of fire) and several Coleman propane lanterns for outdoor use or winter time, controlled usage. The heat off these is great in winter and you can cook on the tops too if you are desperate.

Non-Perishable Food/Water

Now, the most obvious item that sells out after a crisis, and that is food. I didn’t want to create a list of 10 food items, but let’s just say that you know food disappears when panic sets in. You know your family is partial to eating food because they do it every single day. You know that when the power goes out, your options for cooking that food will be a little bit different so take time now to stock up on canned food items that your family can eat either by heating over a camp stove or grill or even a fire. There are a ton of options that you don’t even have to cook. Have plenty of these on hand to feed your family because the stores will run out if this is really a disaster. Even if they get things running in 3 days, do you want your family to go without that long? Take steps now.

This list is just 10 items that sell out in a crisis, but they are by no means the only things that disappear off shelves that we might wish we had. What is on your list of prepping items to make sure you have before it’s too late?

The Trap Is Set: “Both Sides Are Utterly Unprepared For What’s Coming”

By Mac Slavo

If there’s one thing that should be absolutely clear in the current political environment in America, it’s that  there exists a deep division between the people of this nation. Both of sides of the aisle argue vehemently about what’s best going forward, sometimes to the point of physical violence. And though the election of President Donald Trump speaks volumes about the sentiment of Americans, the following video report from Storm Clouds Gathering warns that both sides are utterly unprepared for what’s coming.

Dr. Doom Marc Faber: “Global Liquidity Will Move Into Precious Metals In The Next 3 – 6 Months”

By Mac Slavo

Economist Marc Faber, who is known in many circles as Doctor Doom for his oft gloomy forecasts, says that stock markets are overvalued, but stops short of saying that a crash is imminent. Though valuations are high and sentiment is dangerously optimistic, Faber argues in a recent interview with Fox Business that there are huge money flows still making their way into U.S. equities.

And over the next three to six months Faber says much of that liquidity from foreign and domestic investors may start moving into precious metals and precious metals stocks:

What Really Happened to Hitler and the Third Reich Nazi High Command?

By Preston James

Did Hitler Escape Germany and is the New FOURTH REICH Alive and Well?

Over the years, I have come into contact with numerous very interesting individuals in my research on the endemic high level government corruption.

One such individual is Gregg Hallett, a well-known previously very successful architect from New Zealand, a man who exposed corruption in New Zealand and had to flee to Europe and the UK because of serious harassment by Law Enforcement and Intel.

Greg is the modal example of how a well educated, well respected professional can became a Truth-seeker, and then became transformed into an international anti-corruption Truth-warrior, all because of high level corruption that impacted his life.

Trump to Collapse the Dollar in 2017? Analyst Sees “Economic Crisis Coming”

By Mac Slavo

The demise of the dollar and the collapse of the economy could impact us in a big way during 2017, or in the near future.

For better or worse, the age of Trump could soon become synonymous with financial crisis on a scale that has never before been seen.

The system is looking for a scapegoat, for someone to blame, as a massive debt bubble – across several industries – threatens to burst, and a host of other systemic financial problems threaten to collapse down upon us.

via the Silver Doctors:

Jeff Berwick from Dollar Vigilante joins Silver Doctors with a word of warning. A Trump presidency will bring with it an economic crisis and collapse of the U.S. dollar, Berwick says.

Is there a way to prevent collapse? Berwick is concerned we are past the point of no return. Regardless of who runs the U.S., an economic crisis is coming, he says. Stay tuned to hear Berwick’s perspective on how gold, silver, and bitcoin may perform in the coming crisis.

Trump’s USA: Global Empire or Fortress America?

By South Front

While on the campaign trail, President-Elect Donald J. Trump made a range of statements suggesting a shift away from a policy of interventionism, combined with a focus on safeguarding US borders and jobs at the expense of the dominant ideology of globalism. Can and will he deliver on these promises? There are many reasons to believe he will genuinely push US foreign policy in this direction, but at the same time he will face obstacles on his path.

WW3 Has Begun, And It Is Digital: Cyberattacks Took Down Major Sites

By Mac Slavo

Get ready – it seems that this will be an October Surprise to remember.

The Internet is under attack through the United States and UK… and there is every reason to think that more is coming.

Reports confirmed that a distributed denial of service attack (DDoS) was carried out against the company Dyn, and disrupted much of the East Coast, and later the West Coast and other parts of the U.S. as well, taking down hundreds of major websites – including Paypal, Twitter, Spotify, Netflix, Amazon, Tumblr and Reddit and more.

It took hours for many of them to come back online.

According to USA Today:

At least two successive waves of online attacks blocked multiple major websites Friday, at times making it impossible for many users on the East Coast to access Twitter, Spotify, Netflix, Amazon, Tumblr and Reddit.

[…]

The cause was a large-scale distributed denial of service attack (DDoS) against Internet performance company Dyn that blocked user access to many popular sites standstill.

Dyn … confirmed the attack, noting that “this attack is mainly impacting US East and is impacting Managed DNS customers in this region. Our Engineers are continuing to work on mitigating this issue.”

Here’s a log of updates for the attacks on Dyn Managed DNS infrastructure:

Speculation is that this could be a test run for larger attacks – and public demonstration of just how vulnerable Internet connected systems are. Things are coming to a head very quickly, and there is no telling what will happen as the U.S. election approaches. As the San Jose Mercury News reported:

“Say, not to panic anybody, but what if the (attacks) today were practice for 11/8 ?” high-profile pundit Keith Olbermann tweeted.

A hacking collective calling itself “New World Hackers” are taking credit – and they are based out of Russia and China, so there is little doubt that it will fuel the narrative for more war, tighter security and an age of online instability as the new world (where the dollar is no longer king) is sorted out. According to the Associated Press:

Members of a shadowy hacker collective that calls itself New World Hackers claimed responsibility for the attack via Twitter. They said they organized networks of connected “zombie” computers that threw a staggering 1.2 terabits per second of data at the Dyn-managed servers.

“We didn’t do this to attract federal agents, only test power,” two collective members who identified themselves as “Prophet” and “Zain” told an AP reporter via Twitter direct message exchange. They said more than 10 member participated in the attack. It was not immediately possible to verify the claim.

[…]

The collective has also claimed responsibility for cyber attacks against Islamic State. The two said about 30 people have access to the @NewWorkdHacking Twitter account. They said 20 are in Russia and 10 in China. “Prophet” said he is in India. “Zain” said he is in China. The two claimed to be taking “good actions.”

Perhaps, this major blackout of Internet services may even be a self-inflicted wound to make the establishment look like the victim, rather than the aggressor that Hillary’s legacy represents. Wikileaks has to be hurting her campaign, and it is difficult to say exactly how far things are going to reestablish credibility and take control of the situation.

Right now, Julian Assange is reportedly surrounded by police forces outside the Ecaudorian embassy in London – and his personal future, and that of Wikileaks remains up in the air. Only days ago, his Internet access was cut, with Ecuador under diplomatic pressure by the U.S.

Further Internet attacks are now pending, and it seems everything is potentially exposed. There is no way to be certain how massive future attacks could be – but the largest potential event would likely be an EMP, sending out an electromagnetic pulse powerful enough to take down the electric grid and fry virtually all unprotected electronics.

Individuals can and should prepare on two fronts – stored food and supplies necessary to sustain your family/group for a minimal of several weeks without power and essential services. People can also protect electronic equipment – primary or backup – in a Faraday cage (which will guard against EMP).

Additionally, emergency cash and alternative currency (such as gold and silver) reserves should kept on hands; identity protection measures should be put in place and all accounts, documents, paperwork and other sensitive items should be written down, photocopies and/or stored offline (on a USB, for example). A more detailed check list can be found here. Extra caution should be used with electronic banking and online payment systems.

The shadow government and its military forces have been preparing for extremes in all areas. Things are happening now that we have warned about for years – the cyber dimension of war means that everyone is on the battlefield:

The attack is “consistent with record-setting sized cyberattacks seen in the last few weeks,” [said Carl Herberger, vice president of security at security company Radware]

[…]

Others worried the attack could be from a nation-state rather than simply an individual seeking to wreak havoc.

“This not just an instant job, this is something that was probably worked on for weeks if not for months by really competent people,” he said. (source)

The power to shut down commerce, communication and news feeds could either start – or stop – the kind of 21st Century war that is only now taking shape.

In what is perhaps a bit of planned irony, or a tip off to the perpetrators of this attack, video surfaced of Hillary Clinton in 2010 (as Secretary of State) blathering on about the importance of cyber security and intelligence protection.

Empty words indeed.

In hindsight, no one could have done more to expose the United States’ secrets than the Madam Secretary herself – emails and more make this clear.

Will any of this stop her, or will she take power in spite of it all?

Governments Preparing for World War: “People Have Become Less Prepared For An Emergency”

Editor’s Comment: When it comes to emergencies, the best advice is that once government is warning you to get prepared, it is already too late. Maybe that is a bit harsh, but the truth of the matter is that disaster and war are around every corner, and you should keep your family in a constant state of readiness. Not fearful, but prepared.

An Impending Economic Crash, The Black Horse of The Apocalypse

By David Meade

While we wait for the arrival of Planet X, there is one “domestic” matter everyone needs to pay attention to. These matters are all related to the Red Horse and the Black Horse of the Apocalypse. They portend and forewarn of the Pale Horse, which represents the destruction caused by Planet X, affecting one-fourth of the earth’s surface and people. The word apocalypse means “a prophetic warning” – a revelation or revealing of a coming event of great importance. Revelation Chapter 6 reveals the seals that are opened that match these horsemen.

Before September, Brexit Will Shock And Plunge Global Economy Into Financial Chaos

By Michael Snyder

The UK votes to leave the European Union, things over in Europe will continue on pretty much as they have been.

$7 Billion Strategic National Stockpile: What Is The Government Preparing For?

By  Michael Snyder

You may not be getting prepared for a major national disaster, but the government sure is.

I have been informed that in recent months numerous emergency food companies have been contacted by the government, and they have been told that their inventories could potentially be seized in the event of a significant emergency.  And as you will see below, the government recently participated in an exercise that simulated “an unprecedented global food crisis lasting as long as a decade”.  In addition, NPR has just revealed details about the very secretive Strategic National Stockpile program that is storing billions of dollars worth of medical supplies in warehouses around the nation.  This is a program that most Americans do not even know exists.  On top of everything else, strange reports of military vehicles with UN markings have been coming in from all over the nation.  So what in the world is the government up to?  Why are they working so feverishly hard to get prepared?

BREXIT Victory Shocks NWO – Were “Conspiracy Theories” Responsible?

By Kevin Barrett

Project Fear: Now desperate David Cameron mocks Brexit camp’s “conspiracy theories”

Two days ago David Cameron was mocking “Brexit conspiracy theorists.” Today he announced his impending resignation.

BREXIT victory shocks NWO. After 26 years, Russia makes the first strong step into Europe after the “Brexit”

The New World Order plan to impose bankster-driven global tyranny took a huge hit Friday morning as news of the Brexit victory stunned markets, political leaders and pundits.

Wipe that smirk off your face Jacob, Brexit just lost

They obviously hadn’t planned on this. Polls before the vote showed “leave” down 52%-48%. Given the likelihood of pro-“remain” election fraud – the skids for which had been greased by the elimination of exit polls – a pro-Brexit result seemed mathematically impossible. So…what happened?

That is undoubtedly what the Rothschilds and their minions are asking themselves as they take a much-needed break from cackling and rubbing their hands together in glee at the cascading successes of their planetary hostile takeover operation, and instead get to experience a tiny fraction of the anxiety that their victims everywhere have been living with for centuries.

A poll-forecasted four point Brexit defeat somehow turned into a four-point victory. That’s an eight-point swing overnight.  How did it happen?

Normally such discrepancies suggest election fraud. But the people with the tools to steal elections were generally anti-Brexit, so I think we can eliminate that possibility.

The second leading reason for poll vs. result discrepancies is what might be called a “tell the pollster what the establishment wants to hear” bias. Polls that ask whether you would refuse to vote for Obama because he is black, for example, typically find very few if any people saying “yes, of course I would never vote for a black president.” But actual secret-ballot votes show that this kind of racism exists in much greater numbers than polls reveal. (Conversely, of course, even more people voted for Obama BECAUSE he was black; but they probably wouldn’t easily admit that to a pollster either.)

Voting for Brexit, like racism, is politically-incorrect according to establishment ideology. Therefore a certain percentage of people probably misstated their actual intentions to pollsters. This had the happy result of lulling the New World Order elites into a sense of complacency. They probably had a contingency plan to steal the election if it was close. They probably decided they wouldn’t have to to so because the polls showed they would win anyway. Or, conversely, they may have figured they would only have to shave off a couple of points from the pro-Brexit side, not realizing that the polls were massively  understating pro-Brexit sentiment. So they may have committed election fraud, but not to the degree that would have permitted them to win.

The NWO elites may also have had another reason for complacency: The seeming success of the apparent Jo Cox murder false flag.

Prior to the emotion-stirring killing of “heroic anti-Brexit icon” Jo Cox by an apparent Brexit supporter, the polls showed the pro-Brexit side was significantly ahead. In the wake of the Cox murder, a huge swing occurred, putting anti-Brexit forces ahead 52-48% in polls taken on the eve of the vote. The elites who had arranged the false flag were presumably cackling and rubbing their hands in glee. What could possibly go wrong now?

What went wrong was “conspiracy theories.”

IB Times:

On Thursday, countless posts were circulating on Twitter and Facebook suggesting Cox was sacrificed by pro-EU forces.

The New Statesman:

But focusing on the EU referendum ignores a wider divide: between parliamentary democracy and a majoritarian fury. Between respectful disagreement on immigration and dog whistle claims. Between reporting on facts and the kind of paranoid internet conspiracy that labels Cox’s death a “false flag”. The kind of divide that has echoes in US politics and European populism.

Virtually all British voters who use the internet heard about these “conspiracy theories.” A significant number believed them, while an even more significant number – likely a majority – gave them at least some credence. Today, more and more people understand that the elites manipulate the population through public relation stunts that appeal to emotions and shut down rational thought. The BBC documentary Century of the Self exposed the legacy of Edward Bernays, father of mass mind control, to the British and global public.

 

Believing in “conspiracy theories,” indeed giving them any credence at all, is wildly politically-incorrect, if not downright heretical, according to establishment ideology. So the very large number of voters who found the timing and style of the Cox murder suspicious would never admit that in a formal setting; on the contrary, when contacted by a pollster, they would be even more likely than before to misstate their intentions in the direction of pretending to be anti-Brexit.

But in the privacy of the voting booth, people often go with their real thoughts and emotions. Enough of them, anyway, to occasionally sway elections.

If the above analysis is correct, the wildly-popular “false flag” meme that I have been tirelessly promoting for more than a decade may have been a key factor precipitating this historic first step in the eventual break-up of the European Union and the destruction of the New World Order.

It’s all the fault of “conspiracy theories.”

Their false flag manipulations don’t work any more.

 

No wonder the whole establishment, led by such supposed intellectual heavyweights as Obama’s former information czar Cass Sunstein, is dedicated to eradicating “conspiracy theories” even if they have to “disable the purveyors” (harass them? cripple them? kill them?) or, worse, burn the Constitution, make conspiracy theories illegal, police the internet, and send people like me to prison for thoughtcrime.

But it may be too late. The breakup of the EU, then NATO and finally the whole New World Order project has already been set in motion.

Congratulations are in order to all who have contributed to propagating the false flag meme, exposing the New World Order, taking down the DIPS (Dominant Inbred Psychopaths) and clearing the way for a better world.

Billionaire George Soros “Buying Up Massive Amounts of Gold ” But Why?

 

 

Why is George Soros moving billions of dollars out of stocks and into gold assets and other precious metals?

Perhaps the point of collapse has arrived.

The suggestion seems to be that a point of no return is coming for the stock market system of illusion and usury. The Fed’s great bubble is getting ready to burst. It is playing out on a time frame decided, undoubtedly, by those closest to the inside.

Worse, the end of the U.S. petrodollar is playing out, with plenty of geopolitical drama as currency wars threaten to undo the foundation that the nation has been resting upon.

When the music stops, the economy will shatter and collapse in a devastating wave that will catch the vast majority of Americans off guard. It isn’t the first time Soros’ positions haveserved as a stark warning.

Soros is shifting towards gold because he understands what is coming, and likely has several tricks up his sleeve.

According to the experts, fear of the dollar is driving his gold purchases.

via Sputnik News:

Maybe the best argument in favor of gold is that American legendary investor and billionaire George Soros has recently sold 37% of his stock and buying up massive amounts of gold. 

“George Soros, who once called gold ‘the ultimate bubble,’ has resumed buying the precious metal after a three-year hiatus. On Monday, the billionaire investor disclosed that in the first quarter he bought 1.05 million shares in SPDR Gold Trust, the world’s biggest gold exchanged-traded fund, valued at about $123.5 million,” Fortune and Reuters reported Tuesday.

Watch this video by the Next News Network:

 

Soros’ move with the gold price hovering well below 2011 levels seems in line with the great reckoning that is taking place across the economic landscape.

Those who haven’t hedged and moved away from the false strength of the dollar are apt to lose everything they have.

via The Last Great Stand:

In the video, Franchi discusses how Soros, the “legendary billionaire and front man for the Bilderberg Group, and sometimes referred to as ‘The Currency Killer’” (a more appropriate description I think) recently sold off 37% of his stocks, and bought gold and gold stocks with the proceeds. What can we learn from that? PLENTY!

[…]

Even though gold the price of gold is quoted in terms of U.S. Dollars (for now anyway), there is no “direct” relevance to the U.S. Dollar according to Juan Carlos Artigas, director of investment research at the World Gold Council. With that said, Gold’s moves are sometimes linked to the dollar, because the metal often trades inversely to moves in the greenback.When investors fear the U.S. Dollar is losing power (or on the verge of implosion in this case), they rush to gold to hedge their bets, and vice versa. Another tool many people have been flocking to as a means to hedge the U.S. Dollar is silver, because 1) it’s less expensive than gold and selling at a historically low price right now; and 2) when the big collapse does come, it will be easier to barter with small denominations of silver, than it will be with gold which is currently selling for over $1,200 per ounce.

[…]

the U.S. is about to be SCREWED when it is no longer able to conduct trade with worthless U.S. Dollars and no gold.

Pay attention to the large moves that are happening against the backdrop of entertaining and disturbing news events.

Things are unraveling, things are accelerating and change is going to happen in a big way.

For those who are unprepared, it will be very, very bad. Things will absolutely collapse once the dollar is dead.

Chilling Prophecy Predicts: “Obama Will Be Last U.S. President… Europe A Total Wasteland By End Of 2016”

It is said that an eastern European clairvoyant prophecy has predicted a wide range of events including the attacks of September 11, the Boxing Day Tsunami of 2004, the election of an African American as President of the United States, and an invasion of Europe by Muslim extremists. With a purported 85% accuracy rate, the late Baba Vanga counseled powerful politicians, business leaders and even heads of state.

She died in 1996, but not before making several other dire predictions.

One foretells the collapse of the United States of America as we know it today.

The other is perhaps even more frightening.

Vanga prophesied the total annihilation of the European continent, claiming that the entire region would be a barren wasteland resulting from a ‘great Muslim war’ that would begin in the middle east in 2010, an eerie reference the rise of the Arab Spring.

 

Baba Vanga died in 1996 at the age of 85 and was known as the ‘Nostradamus of the Balkans’ because of her success rate which was supposedly as high as 85 per cent.

The blind pensioner, who has previously been credited with predicting the 9/11 terror attacks and the Boxing Day tsunami of 2004, warned of an invasion of Europe by Muslim extremists next year [2016].

Vanga is said to have made hundreds of predictions in her lifetime, including that there would be a ‘great Muslim war’ which would start with the Arab Spring in 2010.

She predicted it would take place in Syria and would come to a conclusion in 2043 with the establishment of a caliphate with Rome at its centre, News.com.aureports.

Vanga reportedly said Europe will ‘cease to exist’ by the end of next year, leaving the continent ‘almost empty’ and a ‘wasteland almost entirely devoid of any form of life’.

The pensioner once predicted that the 44th US president would be African American – but she also warned that he would be the ‘last US president’.

Via The Daily Mail

It is clear that an invasion of Europe by Muslims has begun. In fact, several million refugees remain isolated in Turkey as Turkish President Erdogan holds the rest of Europe hostage by demanding billions of dollars in aid. Failure to pay what amounts to nothing short of protection money, says Erdogan, will force him to release these hordes of people on the whole of Europe.

Thus, Vanga has been at least partially right about the prediction of invading armies, because as has been noted previously, among the real refugees seeking political and religious asylum, are literally millions of fighting age men with extremist views who are preparing to launch attacks on European countries.

The attacks in Paris and Belgium in recent months are proof positive of this.

 

The fact that terrorist organizations have been found with caches of war grade weapons and are actively trying to compromise nuclear power plants in the region suggests that, should they effectively coordinate attacks utilizing weapons of mass destruction, be they chemical, biologicial, radiological or nuclear, Vanga’s prediction of turning Europe into a total wasteland could certainly come to pass.

We know weapons of mass destruction have been smuggled into Europe, leading many concerned citizens to not only acquire self defense firearms, but personal protective equipment for CBRN attacks.

We also know that a similar threat exists on the Southern border of the United States, where terrorists have already been captured attempting to cross into the U.S.

Further highlighting the threat, the Obama administration recently issued a report outlining four ways that a nuclear or radiological device could be used to attack Americans on U.S. soil. That report was followed by a new policy in Texas where game wardens operating close to the southern border are being issued radiological and nuclear detection equipment along smuggling routes.

The threat of attacks that could leave millions in Europe and the United States sickened or dead are real. Our governments are already preparing for them.

And though prophecies of destruction and mass die-offs are nothing new, Baba Vanga’s date-specific predictions made twenty years ago seemingly coincide with events that are happening all around us.

Fall Of The American Empire: “They Intend To Collapse the Financial System”

“…for two weeks the mob had been rioting uncontrolled in the streets…The economy of the greatest empire that the world had ever seen was coming apart like an unraveling sweater…the cost of maintaining…gigantic armed forces…was bleeding the nation white and in addition there were the heavy subsidies that had to be paid to the…nations dependent…for support.  The impoverished government had neither the funds nor the power to stop the riots.”

Obama Says It’s “Insane” For Millions of Americans On Watchlists To Own Guns

Back in 2011 we facetiously noted that innocent Americans were being added to terror watchlists and No-Fly lists at an alarming pace. So much so, we opined, that by 2020 every person in the United States would be deemed a terrorist and that the entire world would be on a government watchlist by 2025.

Peter Schiff Warns: “The Whole Economy Has Imploded… Collapse Is Coming”

Back before 2008 Peter Schiff was harshly criticized and laughed at for his predictions about a coming economic collapse. Among other things Schiff warned that consumer spending had hit a wall, stocks were overpriced and lax credit lending practices would lead to a detonation of the banking system. Rather than heed the warnings, the biggest names in mainstream media tried to discredit him for not toeing the official narrative. Shortly thereafter, of course, Schiff was vindicated and much of the doom he had forecast came to pass.

Oil May Plunge to $20, Signalling Economic Disaster: “The Numbers Are Dreadful And Unprecedented”

The price of oil has long been a key indicator of economic health and stability. And that index is tanking fast.

In the last few years, dramatic overproduction of oil has become a major tool of geopolitical conflict.

As prices have plummeted from $110/barrel to $40, Americans have tapped huge sources of fracking and flooded the market; OPEC and the Saudis have continued pumping despite dropping prices; Russia, dependent upon oil for its economy, has been under siege via sanctions and bottom-level prices; ISIS and other terror organizations are undercutting everyone with illegal oil sales and China remains large in the whole affair.

America to Collapse As Dollar Dies: “You Cannot Stop What Is Coming… 25 to 50 Million Dead in 90 Days”


A collapse is coming… but not as quickly as many are expecting.

There are many people high up in the power structure who not only see an end to the dollar coming soon, but an economic collapse that could trigger the death of tens of millions of Americans – rendered vulnerable by the lack of services and the stopping of checks, and harmed by the resulting looting, starvation and violence that is likely to occur.
