Everywhere you read lately (in the alternative news media, the financial blogosphere, and alt-news & preparedness blogs) it seems that there has been an incredible ratcheting up of economic doom in our near future. So many people have a ‘feeling’ (and are vocalizing) that something ‘bad’ is about to happen… anywhere from the next several weeks, to this summer, to September (the Shemitah?). Do you feel it? (seriously, do you? let us know…)
Just look at some of the recent headlines the past few days:
Economy Is Unsustainable – Dramatic Shifts Ahead, “The economy cannot grow exponentially indefinitely in a finite world” (Chris Martenson)
“This is HOW People Will Lose EVERYTHING…” “This is going to be an overnight or over the weekend type of event” (Bill Holter)
“Bank Accounts will be frozen; spontaneous collapse coming,” “The next financial collapse will resemble nothing in history…” (Jim Rickards)
“The world economy is like an ocean liner without lifeboats” said chief economist Stephen King of HSBC (London based ‘Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation’ – the world’s third largest multinational bank by assets).
“Whereas previous recoveries have enabled monetary and fiscal policymakers to replenish their ammunition, this recovery — both in the US and elsewhere — has been distinguished by a persistent munitions shortage. This is a major problem.”
Translation: They are out of ammo (tricks, plugs, patches, fixes) and the next crash is going to be ‘real’ (real bad). And although many of us already know this, the fact that he said it publicly, might mean that it’s coming sooner rather than later…
I recently read a quote by Bill Hotler which rang very true.
“It takes only a small amount of force to topple someone on a tightrope.”
In my opinion (and many others) the present financial system is walking a tightrope and it’s not going to take much of a breeze to topple it. There has been wide speculation in the alt-news world and blogosphere that a major reset is coming this year, which may even lead to failure, collapse, and possibly Martial Law.
I know you can feel it… the coming global crisis. And that’s a good thing (that you know the disaster is coming). It means your eyes and ears are open. Hopefully you’re preparing. It’s coming like a freight train – one that can’t be stopped because of its enormous mass and inertia. This object is in motion and no-one’s going to stop it…
Once in awhile (more lately) my instinct shouts that the world is falling apart all around us. It’s as though many world events coupled with failing economies are culminating into a coming disaster or series of disasters. And these are all man-made. The more that I read and research while searching for underlying truths in current events, and economic and political policies, there are times when I’m astonished that the world has held together so far – both at home and abroad!
We are certainly in a mess, and the following are just a few bullet-points that come to mind:
Pure and simple, there’s a lot of bullshit going around these days in the political arena, the financial arena, and mainstream news media arena.
Deception and managed perception is all around, and it’s there to distract you, to misinform you, to obscure harsh realities, to muddle, disorient, and to complicate…
The bullshit meter shown above is pegged. Wouldn’t you agree that we’re awash in the stink?
The government (Washington) ought to be very concerned about the latest long running poll in which it was recently revealed that Americans trust is now at, or near, record lows in the Executive branch, Congress, the Supreme Court, and the mainstream media (‘the press’).
Given the number of Americans who have lost faith and trust in their government, one can only wonder what might happen following a trigger event such as a major economic collapse…
