The crash of 1929 followed by the Great Depression, currency wars, trade wars, World War II, then the panic of 08, the current Depression II, today’s currency wars and trade wars… World War III is unfolding in front of our eyes.
A quote often spoken by Gerald Celente, “When all things fail, they take you to war”.
Look at all the demonstrations and unrest going on in the world. 100,000 protestors in the Czech Republic demonstrating last week against their government and unraveling economy. Look at the similarity to what has happened and is happening in Greece, Spain, Portugal, and Italy during the past months.
The powers-that-be need to identify an enemy for everyone to hate, to refocus the attention of the sheeple with the propaganda and fear hysteria to keep people’s mind off of the economy, housing, and unemployment. After 9/11 it was Bin Laden and the Taliban, al-Qaeda. Today it is Iran and other villains.
A few weeks ago the government and the main-stream-media made a big deal about the North Koreans, their rocket launch, and their threat to destroy the south, which had people freaked out for a week (by the way, their test rocket exploded mid-air).
‘Balloons’ have been floated regarding China’s military assistance to North Korea and NK’s secret military cooperation (arms/equipment sales?) with Iran. For years now Iran has supposedly been within ‘months’ and on the verge of building a nuclear bomb. Iran is now under embargo and has been removed from the world’s financial ‘SWIFT’ system, disabling their ability to sell oil on the world market (nearly 80% of their income). Iran is being forced into a ‘war’ position and the establishment is itching for an excuse to start this war.
When examining what happened in Germany leading up to WWII, people ask, why didn’t the people rise up and stop the Germans? How could they have let this happen? The answer is, they didn’t lose their rights in one day, it was week by week, month by month, year by year. It progressed to the point that when you spoke out, they took you away. You couldn’t talk to your relatives – you were afraid… It was an incremental and slow death grip on to the population.
Now look at what has been going on here in the U.S. of late. Many of you who follow alternative news, already know what has been happening – most of which is never reported by the main stream news outlets for the majority of Americans to hear or read about.
Look at the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), signed by the president on New Years Eve, while no one was paying attention… codifying indefinite military detention without charge or trial into law for the first time in American history. The NDAA’s dangerous detention provisions would authorize the president — and all future presidents — to order the military to pick up and indefinitely imprison people captured anywhere in the world, far from any battlefield. This is for real folks… look it up.
Almost any American could now be labeled a “terrorist” if the government doesn’t happen to like them… for questioning war, protesting anything, asking questions about pollution or about Wall Street shenanigans, supporting Ron Paul, being a libertarian, holding gold, or stocking up on more than 7 days of food (and the FBI says that activists who investigate factory farms can be prosecuted as terrorists).
President Obama has recently stated a policy that he can have any American citizen killed without any charge, without any review, except his own. If he’s satisfied that you are a terrorist, he says that he can kill you anywhere in the world including in the United States. You’ve now got a president who says that he can kill you on his own discretion. He can jail you indefinitely on his own discretion.
“The administration is asserting the authority to kill any American whom the president declares to be an enemy of the state,” said Jameel Jaffer, a national security attorney with the ACLU. “That’s a breathtaking assertion.”
But Holder (Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr.) countered that those determinations by the executive branch do not require any court oversight because they “depend on expertise and immediate access to information that only the executive branch may possess in real time.”
Big brother now can listen in on everything. Algorithms are now in place to determine if you are a potential threat to the state.
The NSA is building the world’s largest and massive 2 billion dollar – 1 million square foot heavily fortified spy center complex, located in Bluffdale, Utah. The center is scheduled to be fully operational within a year.
“They’re storing everything they gather.” “You can watch everybody, all the time.”
In secret listening rooms the NSA software examines American’s every email, phone call, tweet, website click, and electronic transactions. Quoted from an NSA insider, “We are, like, that far from a turnkey totalitarian state”.
The supreme court ruled 3 weeks ago that any American can be strip searched in the process of being arrested.
Martial law can now be declared by a ‘potential’ threat.
History is repeating itself. Except perhaps the U.S. is becoming the old Germany? We are facing an uncertain future, for sure. I would suggest to everyone, get prepared. Something is happening…
