There have been many very intelligent and highly credible people from all sectors of society - from government to the military, to finance, to science, to religion, etc. - that have written about what is happening and their predictions of what is to come. Considering all of the verifiable information that is easily available on the internet, it is difficult to not realize that something very bad is going to happen, whether it be massive terrorist attacks on American soil, a biological pandemic, a great world war or worse. But whatever does happen, one thing is certain. It is inevitable that America will go through a financial Armageddon.
The national debt is now almost $19 trillion – a figure so high that most people have trouble conceptualizing how much money that is. In February 1981, President Ronald Reagan made a now famous statement about the national debt at the time.
So using Reagan’s calculations, $19 trillion would be a stack of $1,000 dollar bills 1,273 miles high.
Another way of visualizing the national debt can be done using $1 bills instead of $1,000s. If the $19 trillion dollar national debt was put in a stack of $1 bills, that stack would be 1,273,000 miles high. Enough to make over five trips to the moon. Our debt is truly astronomical.
But the real national debt is much larger than just a mere $19 trillion. According to Professor Laurence J. Kotlikoff, who served as Reagan’s senior economist, the real figure, called the fiscal gap, is more like $222 trillion. He claims that if you add up all the payment obligations like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid benefits, retirement pensions, other entitlement liabilities, and you subtract the projected taxes, the difference is actually more like $222 trillion. That’s a stack of $1,000 dollar bills 14,137 miles high. If you figure in the $247 trillion in derivatives debt that U.S. banks are exposed to, that stack of $1,000s laid sideways would be longer than the equatorial circumference of the earth.
When President Obama took office the total national debt stood at $10.6 trillion, which means that before he is out of office the debt will have increased more than the total amount accumulated by all other presidents - from George Washington through George Bush combined. If you do the math that’s $100 million dollars every hour of Obama’s presidency. But don’t blame him entirely for the reckless borrowing and wasteful spending because Congress holds the purse strings and they are the ones who voted yea on the money spent. Perhaps this is why Congress has reached a new low, with an approval rating of only 9% of the American public.
Running the printing presses 24/7 won’t prevent the house of cards from collapsing someday soon. It is mathematically impossible to repay the national debt, ever. America is bankrupt and a horrific financial collapse is both unavoidable and imminent.
The elite know it is true and many of them are so scared that they have built luxurious deep underground bunkers, and some millionaires have even went so far as to relocate both themselves and their wealth to off-shore havens. Many CIA, DHS, NSA, FBI and FEMA retirees have likewise bugged out to South America. When the chaos starts, the high-level politicians who decided to stay stateside will hideout in the classified deep underground military bases, some of which are several miles underneath the surface.
Some event – either a real attack, a false flag or a natural disaster - will precede the financial collapse and the blame for the collapse will be on the event and not on the Federal Reserve.
Whatever the trigger event is, when the dominos start to topple, the looting will begin and won’t stop until every last bread crumb has been stolen. Walmart, Costco and every grocery store will be gutted, as will every gun store, jewelry store and pawn shop. Pharmacies will be hit first.
If you are living in a major metropolitan area, and if you do not have a preplanned destination to travel to, bugging out to parts unknown - called “all dressed up with nowhere to go” – will be a very bad idea. If you have nowhere specific to head to you will likely become a refugee. One of the main rules of preparedness is to never end up as a refugee, especially during a national crisis.
After the stores have been thoroughly looted things will get even more violent. Huge mobs will form and many buildings will be set on fire and burned to the ground as the fire departments will be overwhelmed. Firestorms will sweep across many towns and cities. Uncontrollable firestorms have happened numerous times in the past before we had modern fire departments. For example, large urban fires happened in the great fire of Rome (64 A.D.), the great fire of London (1666), the great fire of Chicago (1871), the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, and the great Kanto earthquake in Japan (1923).
In 1906 San Francisco had a great earthquake that lasted only a single minute but caused one of the worst natural disasters in this nation's history. The greatest destruction came not from the seismic activity but from the fires the quake ignited. These ravaged the city for three days before burning themselves out. The maelstrom destroyed 25,000 buildings, made over 250,000 homeless and killed over 700 people. Firestorms were also created by the firebombing raids of World War II in Hamburg, Dresden, Tokyo, Kassel, Darmstadt, Pforzheim, Braunschweig, Hildesheim and Stuttgart. Some of these had huge death tolls, such as in Hamburg, Germany which killed 45,000. So there is considerable historic precedence to believe future firestorms are a real possibility.
When the police try to stop the looting and riots, many of them will be shot on sight. Once “hunting season” on police is open, most of the cops still alive will rightfully head for home to protect their own families. Sadly, some will steal as many weapons and tactical equipment from the police arsenals as they can when they leave, making it even more difficult for the remaining cops to do their job. Without fully staffed police departments the crime rate will exponentially explode.
Some of the more rogue cops will form their own versions of street gangs and proceed to rape and pillage without any fear of arrest. Because our police have been heavily militarized, many big city police departments have an incredible array of weaponry; full-auto machine guns, .338 Lapua Magnum sniper rifles, night vision scopes, thermal imagers, handheld radars that can see through walls made of one-foot-thick concrete, stun grenades, tear gas grenade launchers, spike strips, vehicle arrestors (i.e., handheld “guns” that can shut down a running vehicle’s electronics bringing it to a stop), surveillance drones and even armored personal carriers. It will be hell on earth when the unscrupulous cops go bad.
You won’t want to be in a big city when this kind of (pig) shit is going down.
If this is how rogue cops act now, imagine what they will be like during the financial collapse.
In addition to the looters, many hundreds if not thousands of Islamist terrorists have already infiltrated America and are waiting for the green light to carry out terrorist attacks in retaliation for the Iraqis and Afghans who have been killed by the U.S. military. These sleeper cells have both nuclear material and biological agents, and they are prepared to die for Allah.
Estimates are that as many as 1,000,000 Iraqi soldiers died as a result of the Desert Storm invasion of Iraq (which had no weapons of mass destruction after all), and more than 1,500,000 innocent people – mostly women and children - died as a direct result of the embargo on Iraq before the war even started. The lack of food and medicine caused far more harm, suffering and death than the military war itself. And there were more than 91,000 warriors were killed during the war in Afghanistan, with an additional 360,000 civilians dead from indirect causes related to the war. These figures don’t include those who were murdered in Pakistan, Libya, Egypt, Somalia, Yemen, Sudan, Serbia, Lebanon, and Syria. Islam wants revenge and who can blame them?
Now the Obama administration plans to bring tens of thousands of Syrian refugees into the country in 2016, despite Homeland Security officials admitting there’s no way to adequately screen the new arrivals from the war-torn Islamic nation that’s a hotbed of terrorism. Many of these military-aged men will join the jihad.
When multiple terrorist attacks happen, Martial Law will be declared. Both active and reserve National Guards units will be mobilized. The military will take over the White House and all State Governor offices. Congress will be sent packing, and the Constitution and Bill of Rights will be suspended. The internet will be shut down. Checkpoints will be set up and roundups of those on the red-list will begin.
Once the Federal Reserve Notes becomes worthless it will be apparent to China – the main lender to the U.S. – that the loans will never be repaid and they will want to collect what is owed to them. It is a little known fact that the reason why the Chinese keep lending the U.S. billions upon billions of dollars is because the loans are heavily collateralized. The government has secretly pledged our national parks, national forests, waterways and lakes, Federal highways, and oil, coal, natural gas, uranium and mineral rich lands as collateral. We’ve been sold out.
If the U.S. doesn’t hand over the assets right away as promised, the Chinese military is in a position to eventually take it by force. The Peoples Liberation Army is the world's largest military force with approximately 3 million active members. By contrast the U.S. military has only 1.3 million on active duty, and they are spread around the globe. And to pour more fuel on the fire, China has military pacts with many other nuclear armed countries like Russia, Pakistan, Iran, and North Korea.
China will launch a full-scale cyber-attack against the American power grid, and then wait it out for a year or more before they invade with a million ground troops.
A successful cyber-attack that takes down the national power grid would decimate the population in a matter of months. Estimates are that less than 90% of the current population would be unable to survive in the mid-1800′s standard of living that would follow. Within months after the lights go out America will have as few as 30 million surviving residents. Not coincidentally, Deagle.com - a CIA front company - predicted the American population will drop to just 65 million within 10 years.
Author Joel Skousen, a leading expert in geopolitics, emergency preparedness and strategic relocation, stated that the number one threat preppers need to plan for is population density. He points out that because most people only have a 3-day supply of food in their homes, we are only nine meals away from anarchy. When people go hungry they are capable of anything, including murder and even cannibalism.
The answer is obvious. Either move out of the heavily populated cities or establish a bug out destination to flee to when the sugar hits the fan. You don’t want to be trapped in a major metropolitan area when society breaks down.
The best plan is to be where everybody else isn’t.
