The Collapse is Much Worse Than You Are Being Told For a long time I warned that our economic bubble would burst and that we would plunge into a nightmarish economic collapse. Now it has happened, and it turns out that fear of COVID-19 was the “black swan event” that triggered the collapse. The ironic thing is that COVID-19 is not even close to the worst thing that is going to happen to us. But it was more than enough to topple our incredibly fragile economic system, and now tens of millions of Americans are deeply suffering. On Friday, the April jobs report was released, and it was the worst jobs report in U.S. history by a very, very wide margin.
According to the official numbers, 20.5 million Americans lost their jobs during the month, and the unemployment rate shot up to 14.7 percent. During the last recession, the unemployment rate peaked at about 10 percent, and we have already left that number in the dust. The figures that we are seeing now are truly, truly horrifying, and what is even more frightening is that they aren’t even that accurate.
Across America many buildings stand empty or under-leased. They once housed thriving businesses that provided Americans with good-paying jobs. Over the last several years retailers have been closing stores and as the carnage rapidly accelerates this will be back in the news bigger than ever.
The impact of these store closings all across America will be huge and take a huge toll on communities with a great number of jobs being lost forever. Much of this is linked to small businesses having its clock cleaned when forced to shutdown because of Covid-19, however, a lot is related to paying higher wages, compiling with new government regulations, and being forced to compete with big businesses backed by Wall Street money.
Abandoned Malls, A Canary In The Coal Mine. Retail closures come with a hidden cost to society that the average person fails to internalize. Retail closings will result in lots of other small businesses closing their doors. Not only will the retail employees lose their jobs but these stores support many local businesses. People often forget that the brick and mortar stores suffer several expenses not fostered upon online companies. All these constitute a sort of tax on these stores which benefits the community in which they are located.
Stocks are up, Yet fundamentals are worse than the Great Depression. And the Circus continues. The Fed bought the open with both hands and feet. It is all Rigged! These markets are a frontrunning operation run by AI algorithms. Rome is burning; That’s good for 100 points on the S&P. This is the sickest day I have seen in this Ponzi fraud ever. Every major city in America is being set on fire and looted. Forty million unemployed. And they just keep pumping this Ponzi scheme in everyone’s face. Further proof of how disconnected the stock “market” is from reality. As Americans get out of bed this morning, they are not going to give one damn about the market.
They’re going to find out that their nation has literally burned to the ground. The financial sector (Wall Street) is COMPLETELY disconnected from the REAL economy: People riot in the streets, millions of middle-class people in the US lost their job and income, but the stock market skyrockets. 2020 is 1984 on steroids. The true “looters” are in the Federal Reserve, Wall Street, and the Military-Industrial Complex. Their minions are the ones dressed in black and breaking windows, throwing firebombs, and inciting protesters to riot.
The only thing that will stop stocks from going up is if the Federal Reserve was ever fully audited. But it’s never going to happen. They all know the books are cooked. They also know an audit will absolutely crush the dollar instantly, and they will lose everything to mass violence. Welcome to 2020 – everything is bull (ish). I can only imagine when unemployment hits 30%, and the U.S. military takes over major cities and installs FEMA camps. The Dow would hit 40k. As long as central banks print funny money notes and keep stonks on the level decided by the central committee, you can have them at 60k, for a while. Soon the defaults on all the business loans, and that should be good for another 10000 pop on Dow.
How can markets set themselves up for new record highs, when hundreds of millions around the globe have been sacked or furloughed and are likely to become long-term unemployment statistics. Who controls the markets? Who stands to gain the most from this nonsense? The small guy or the banking cabal? There is your answer. The small guy will get crushed, and the one Percent protected by this group will gain. The degree to which soaring markets are diverging from the real economic virus damage, and now the rising rage, has become embarrassingly obscene.
The players in the market know that the worse things get, the faster we arrive at negative rates. As Wallstreet laughs at it all and reminds the plebs; The Fed is your Daddy! They needed a pandemic with lockdowns, closures, along with massive unemployment and riots. Money changers, along with Fauci, are wringing their hands and smirking with glee in their eyes. All done by Design, all done by Agenda. It is all a show, everything is fine. The underlining strength in the economy is their” ALL HAIL THE ALL AND MIGHTY FED’. And, I thought the worst looting was being done by dims, Antifa, and the 99/100ths rioters.
SEIZE, AUDIT, AND END THE REAL THIEVES: THE FED! End the Fed. Drain the swamp. Enforce the constitution. And remove all dual citizens from the government. Sound money forces the government to live within its means. Eliminate all fiat currencies, for starters. That should be easy. America had the example of Japan right in front of it. But the magic show had to be saved at all costs. For those who think QE will keep asset prices going up indefinitely, look at how QE has tapered. Bubbles are like balloons. They need constant hot air to stay inflated. “QE has become an inescapable trap.” QE was an inescapable trap from the beginning. If circumstances are such that to not do QE is just too painful, yet QE will never allow that pain to lessen, you are in the trap. The only way out is through the pain. The worst part is, the pain is going to happen regardless, it will just be worse if it comes involuntarily. Here comes the pain. Greed, hubris, and ignorance have brought the empire to where it is today. The free lunch is over, and the rest of the world sees through the lies. The whole world is laughing at us going along with the globalism scam and our leaders selling gazillion and trillion dollars worth science, wealth, and jobs to China To enrich themselves and us becoming slaves to China.
Treason like this never happened in history. And as the anarchists go head to head with the law and order crowd, The 1% kicks back and enjoys the show. Thus was it ever. Thus shall it always be. Get out of the market now. This is a big fraud by the banksters! The Market Has Reached Its “Maximum Stupid” Price Limit. Room for more suckers and bagholders at the top! The markets are all rigged, no need to report on them. Smart people walked away, crazy people try to guess the next move, and insiders know the next move. The wonder is, how bad does it get before the kingpins decide this is not good. The Gambling addicts, playing in the Wall Street Casino, will get wiped out. A Casino owned by the bank cartel. The house always wins. I believe there will be a four to six-month window where the markets will implode and reset to levels for a new beginning. Unfortunately, most people will be wiped out AGAIN, as they just can’t resist.
The market will go down, and it will remain down for quite a while, and the average investor will eventually sell at the bottom like they always do, and that is how wealth is transferred to those who DON’T need it to live off. The bankruptcies are going to be far and wide, and everyone is right now riding the FAANG’s rather than looking at the reality of the rest of the market. With the peak stupidity government with lockdown, peak high stock market with a long queue of bankruptcies, semi-peak chaos on the streets, I am racing against time to accumulate all kind of tangible assets (not only gold), food (rolling 3-6 months) and cash buffer enough for 2-3 years. Thankfully, I am not in a city.
You are here for your daily dose of the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. The central banks are buying up to prop up their big corp & hedge funds friends. The “Empire of the City” is taking down the current currency system that is obvious. The probable plan is to back all current currencies with some new central fiat debt-based currency at a fixed exchange rate, i.e., like Bretton Woods architecture but all locked into their new Bancor.
They don’t want to scare the masses with sudden change, but then they have you by the balls as they control the price and volume of the underlying. Simple. And the end game/end times are approaching. Remember, at one time, $60 billion a month in Fed debt monetization was considered massive. I think they do that and more in a day now, although they are tapering to maybe $5 billion a day right now. I don’t keep up on this level on minutia. While keeping the retirement accounts solvent is a noble idea, that goal is looking to be an impossible one after the next Wall Street liquidity withdrawal, aka the next and probably final financial markets crash. This one looks like the big one before the last one. Idiocy like ZIRP and NIRP combined with entire financial markets that require ZIRP in order to see their deals not fail, foreshadows a few problems ahead that more ZIRP won’t fix. Neither will NIRP. The streets will look worse than they do now when this happens. Floyd was the trigger.
The Communist Media, the fake Wuhan Flu Crisis, the forced house arrests, the Impeachment, and the Meuller Investigation / Frameup, and @Jack, The CEO of Twitter telling us he and his buddies are and always will be the boss of all of us; is the real reason for the riots. Add in failed MMT, and the end is nigh. MMT is poison. QE (Central Banking itself, actually) decoupled the financial system from a productive activity because it systematically rewards cronies at the expense of producers. MMT suffers from the same sin to a greater degree. You cannot cure poisoning by imbibing more poison. Revalue Precious Metals and other real assets to a price sufficient to back currencies. Let the debt junkies default. Do this, and the modern world will continue. Fail to do it, and you will get 1984 followed rapidly by Mad Max world. With markets this overextended, your window of time to take action will likely be quite brief. An end to the current rally could happen extremely quickly and brutally.
Obviously, if you don’t have some gold or at least gold stocks in your portfolio, now is the time to buy, make it 5% of your assets as a defensive play to the trillions of fiat that has been printed – which you know for sure, will hurt the buying power of the US dollar. Anyone who buys anything (except lead, silver, or gold) now deserves all he will get. Bankruptcy. The Protesters are sick of the FED, creating inequality. Now the FED is actively preventing the recovery. In a fair world without the Fed, those who had savings should have been able to buy stocks on the cheap and be rewarded. Instead, those who had the most debt will be bailed, and those who had savings are going to pay for it with higher prices. Another worthless American export to the world – central banking and QE. I don’t see a peaceful way out of any of this. My only hope is that the anger is directed at the true perpetrators of corruption, graft, and theft. This isn’t a left/right thing. It’s a top/bottom thing. I hope all of you stay safe and have a plan.
Prepare For The 2020 Recession : Food, Water, Shelter, Community
As the health crisis grows, the virus case numbers increasing daily, the future of society as we have grown to know it seems more unstable than ever. The value of money, of our financial markets, becomes more desperately flailing as the availability of commercial resources is less certain and less convenient. The global system is proving ultimately incapable, and the call for self-reliance has never rung so true. But, this isn’t a time for doomsday sentiments. It’s a time to look to ourselves, our families, and our immediate communities to better provide our own needs.
We can grow and preserve food. We can harvest and store water. We have the potential to make our own electricity, heating, and cooking fuel. While it’s been useful to have fossil fuels and global shipping networks, it’s also made the world (climate change) and individuals more vulnerable. Permaculture design and the permaculture lifestyle helps to move us in a stable direction, at least at home and possibly within our own communities. Just as we permaculturalists work to make our landscapes resilient, we make ourselves and our communities that way.
If ever there were time for more people to start practicing self-sufficient life choices, now is it, and here’s what it’s all about:
1. Food Production. Growing food at home, as well as preserving food, is an integral part of permaculture. Even small urban and suburban lots have the potential to produce hundreds of kilos of food annually. This can include fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, eggs, and even meat. This kind of food security not only insures we don’t go hungry and do have a nutritious diet, but it eliminates the drive of fossil-fueled, chemically-dependent industrial agriculture. Permaculture designs incorporate systems for growing diverse sources of food and preserving some of it for the future, particularly with power-free options like fermentation and dehydration. Health emergencies, then, don’t require trips to the supermarket but, rather, the pantry.
2. Fresh Water. We need fresh water to live, even more than we need food. Municipal water has become more and more questionable with chemical slurries used to “sanitise” it, and bottled water—the modern standard—is even worse. This is particularly so when the fact remains that we have the ability to harvest, clean, and store our own water naturally at home. We can use grey-water systems to extend its use, and we can use simplistic earthworks to eliminate the need for irrigation. Societally, we just haven’t done that, but it’s a priority in every permaculture design. Health emergencies, then, don’t require stacks of bottled water in the garage because there’s a huge storage tank ready and waiting.
3. Energy Sources. Permaculture shelters are designed (or retrofitted) very thoughtfully to provide our energy needs without undue reliance on larger national and global energy systems. We can design homes to work well for us as families and as small communities. Passive. Home designs (and even garden designs) within permaculture systems look to minimise our need to produce energy, tapping into what nature provides. Sunshine can give us light and heat if we position our windows sensibly, and we can similarly use clever designs to have power-free food-growing systems in winter.
The earth itself, just a couple of meters down, provides temperature stability, both for cooling and heating systems if we connect our homes or greenhouses to it. Thermal mass and insulation can also serve us well for storing and trapping, respectively, warmth or coolness. With permaculture design, we seek out passive energy as something crucial to design around rather than a blind focus on aesthetics. In this way, we make our world comfortable by default. Renewable. Of course, passive sources can’t provide all of our energy needs, rather it lessens the demand for energy production, so for the rest of our energy, permaculture systems push into renewable sources.
We can use fuel wood for heating, cooking, hot water, and light. We can tap into water and wind, as well as the sun, to provide electricity for running modern conveniences like computers and freezers, which are essentially luxuries but also pertinent to today’s world. Compost, including humanure, can provide heating (and hot water), while producing fertility and biogas for cooking fuel or powering generators. There are many renewable sources of energy that we can produce and rely on. While some outside production is likely necessary for things like solar panels or micro-hydro turbines, designing with these as opposed to mains power puts us on a more self-reliant track in which we can still take advantage of useful technologies without constantly calling on outside sources to power it.
4. Communal Effort. While self-reliance may seem somewhat isolationist, the permaculture reality is that it is not, that the practice on the whole is focused on community, on changing the social structures we have now into something more cooperative and constructive. We have the capacity to grow all our food, build our homes, collect our own water, create our own power, and so on, but there is no illusion as to how much more efficient it is to work as a team to accomplish such things. With that approach, we can have so much greater abundance, and we can tap into so many more skill sets. And, when we produce our own needs as a community, we have a much truer sense of relying on one another to be self-reliant. Our interactions are based on community collaboration rather than dependence or exploitation, on partnerships as opposed to employment. Working together this way is what creates the bonds necessary to help each other when the time comes.
5. Real Recreation. A permaculture lifestyle establishes healthy habits at which we are productive, active, and mentally stimulated, and still we have ample time for pursuing personal interests and idleness. We get outside in the sunshine and fresh air. We labour together over tasks that are meaningful, and we socialise with neighbours as opposed to social media pages. When technology is a useful tool but not a way of life, we have the capacity to expand our interests in more tangible ways, and we tap into recreational activities that feed our souls, minds, and bodies rather than check us out of daily drudgery. Recreation is a real need for humans, but it needn’t be mindless or slothful, at least not all of the time.
Permaculture sites leave little room for saying “there’s nothing to do” and yet they are also very forgiving when that’s what we long for. They’re designed to be so. Meeting these basic needs of humanity seemingly should be a priority to us all, yet modern living has taken us further and further from it. When we run out of food, it’s to the supermarket, not the garden or root cellar. Our water comes in bottles from chemically treated municipal sources, not clean springs, wells, and rooftop rain catchments. Our energy is on-demand, convenient, and limitless until, perhaps, it’s not there. Then, we are somewhat helpless: unable to heat the house, unable to cook a meal, and unable see at night. We’ve learned to fear our neighbours and sit next to friends whilst flipping through text messages. Video games and Netflix are the way we unwind. It’s not to say any of these things in the right circumstances are wrong, but as an all-consuming way of life, not having some semblance of self-reliance leaves us lacking, particularly at our most vulnerable moments. Permaculture thinking prioritises our needs and leaves plenty of room for our wants. That could make for a much more stable future.
The Lost Ways 2 program is to reveal all the ancient techniques and secrets used by our forefathers to deal with harsh conditions such as diseases, wars, drought, and other life-threatening conditions.
In this program the author explains how to grow and store these foods for a long time in pit holes. Other than this, you will find a lot other valuable information explained in this guide on topics such as finances, health, and life crisis among others.
Basically the guide covers majorly on the super nutrient foods that can help you survive during times of food shortages. These foods have a longer lifespan which enabled our ancestors to store them even when they didn’t have access to refrigerators and other related technologies.
Inside this document you will discover how the pioneers from the Wild West hunted deer and how they tanned hides without chemicals and without spending a dime. You’ll also find out how to butcher a deer and what parts are best for certain preservation methods.
Lost Way 2 – second edition show you how to use the activated charcoal to build yourself a simple and reliable water filter that can clean 800 gallons of water.
When all the water is contaminated, and all you can find are muddy creeks and pools with diseases running rampant you’ll keep your loved ones drinking crystal-clear healthy water. Activated charcoal pills are very useful in treating acute food and chemical poisoning too.
