poor prognostication for police state

The ruling elite hell-bent on destroying our free country is banking on their police state to keep them alive and in the catbird’s seat. The Straight Line Logic website published a thoughtful article from Robert Gore that suggests their assumptions may be far too optomistic. Their assessment of we their avowed enemies may be gross underestimations. Needless to say, I like that view. So I share a snippet of it here with a link to the full article. – Ted –   The Illusion of Control, Part Two by Robert Gore When the violence comes—and it will come—the military and militarized police forces will face domestic insurgents who are better armed, trained, supplied, coordinated, and technologically proficient than the foreign […]

the horsemen of the apocalypse

I keep meaning to write (again) about the numerous precipices we gambol about upon. Agricultural, financial, war, biological, cultural and several more mostly man-made disasters are poised to destroy the world as we know it (TEOTWAWKI). James Howard Kunstler just did that job. Not exactly as I would, but close enough. One thing for certain, there are more than four horsemen riding towards us this time. – Ted The Quickening Support this blog by visiting Jim’s Patreon Page NEW: A New Video Message From Your Blogger JHK An ill wind threatens to rake and churn up the Atlantic coast this Labor Day as a live-action metaphor auguring a more general wreckage to come in the final four months of 2019.

culture wars – where we are today

The setup to have us fighting each other is getting stronger, deeper and more profound in a hurry. Those who are setting it up figure to have the front-line people, the activists and defenders thin their numbers out to a managable few, leaving nothing but the flock for them to manage. It is good to pay attention to their progress. The article below from the American Thinker is an excellent snapshot. They are, by the way, a good source of information. Follow the link and see for yourself. – Ted   The Left’s Demonization of Conservatives Becomes Dangerous By Jeffrey T. Brown There exists in this country a cultivated mindset that conservatives are all things evil.  We have gradually devolved […]

current threat analysis

I subscribe to Forward Observer and check that website for news and analysis. It is conservative in the cautious about making unsubstantiated or speculative statements sense of that word. Samuel Culper observes radical statements and movements without awarding undue relevance to them. The article below was a significant part of his Early Warning series that he sends to his subscribers regularly. The Internet news sources are publishing a great deal about the globalist-funded violence by the easily led against those who are resisting the socialist/statist USofA takeover. There are plenty of people ready to out-violence the increasingly vicious “anti-fascists”. While the antifi are politically and culturally ignorant beyond belief they are indeed a force to be considered primarily because […]

SHTF surprises

Selco is one of the most famous Been-There-Done-That preppers and survivors of SHTF available to us today. His experiences could fill a book … and in fact filled several that are not only educational, but could be pivotal in an uncertain future. The following article was copied from Natural Blaze with all due respect. Check them out by clicking on the link above.   The 5 Things That Will Surprise You Most When the SHTF   By Selco This is an excerpt from Selco’s book, The Dark Secrets of SHTF Survival. This weekend, you can get all 5 of Selco’s books in PDF for only $25.  CLICK HERE. I recently ran one of my newest courses, called “A Mile in […]

kicking the hornet’s nest

Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined. — Patrick Henry A good friend and fellow practical philosopher has been regularly telling me over the last few years that It has to break in order to fix the myriad messes that have evolved in our current world human societies. Over the years others who I share mutual respect with have tried to get me into that frame of reference. But that has always been too much for me to accept. I have spent a great deal of myself over the last two decades working to avert exactly […]

Are You Ready For Total Currency War?

By Ron Holland “Are you ready for total war?” “Sind Sie bereit für totalen Krieg?” – Joseph Goebbels On February 18, 1943, German Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels delivered a rousing speech at the Berlin Sportpalast, asking the German people, “Sind Sie bereit für totalen Krieg?” or “Are you ready for total War?” Germany had planned for Blitzkrieg and a short war and was unprepared for a world war as the combined military forces of the United States, England and the Soviet Union crushed the Reich relentlessly and systematically. Although the people and economy rallied in defense of Germany, total war only prolonged the horrors of war and delayed their inevitable defeat. Today, 72 years later, another quasi-fascist empire formerly at […]

indicators

I am confident it will blow. Too many aspects of our socio-political world are at the brink and some with significant velocity heading towards their particular precipice. When, how much, and which ones are unknowns, but The End Of The World As We Know It (TEOTWAWKI) is coming soon. I watch a lot of indicators. Knowing early is important. The prices of gold and silver are controlled by the major players in the COMEX, the commercial metals exchange market. Over 95 percent of the trades are paper promises, unrelated to the actual metal. The biggest criminal organizations in the world keep these prices artificially low for a number of reasons, all related to their wealth and power. This tells us […]

Not looking too good out there

A few days ago I read a rather grim picture of the near future. I disagreed with bits of it here and there, but am unable to say, with any conviction, that his view is invalid. I will give you links to the article and exerpts below. Go looksee at the whole thing if the bits I share entice you to. In his first paragraph he suggests boredom as a reason for writing. That is definitely not my case. I would far rather do many other things. I continue to hold out hope that the looming engineered disaster for Earth as we know it will be survived by good people rather than those deviants who planned it. I share news […]

trade war humor

Either trade crosses borders or armies do “Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations… entangling alliances with none” ― Thomas Jefferson The knuckle-dragging Neanderthals of the Potomac Swamp have their hearts set on an escalating trade war. Centuries of human experience explain to anyone paying any attention at all exactly how this will work out. Either the Trump team and the ossified congresscritters are idiots OR they want war. There is no third choice. Well, unless you count “They are idiots AND they want war” as a third choice. Oh well. I can’t control it. I don’t endorse it. I am in the stands watching the show. Every once in a while a particularly amusing bit shows up in […]

what would you do with A Hundred Trillion Dollars?

This is what paper currencies do. Every time. The US Feral Reserve Notes have had a phenomenally long run, but the pattern will not be broken… those who ignore history, however, will be. Today you can buy ONE HUNDRED TRILLION DOLLARS Zimbabwae for 250 FERAL RESERVE NOTEs. You could, on the other hand, buy a dozen or more real, solid, sound-money dollars for an equal amount. Of course when the international banking cartel took over the USofA currency, you could exchange our dollars for one ounce of silver straight across. They stole the difference. While fiat governments and their fiat currencies come and go, precious metals in known purities and quantities hold their value for centuries, generations and without […]

the dollar approaches invisibility

Woodrow Wilson from his deathbed: “I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world — no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” What made President Wilson so unhappy? He is the guy […]

what the cliff looks like

We know it is close, but it has been any day now for more than a decade. Still, someone writing under the name “John Galt” publishes a good summary of where we are today. From his website, John Galt FLA.com: August 1, 2017 Starts the Most Dangerous 90 Days in American History Posted By: John Galt 19/07/2017 by John Galt July 19, 2017 09:00 ET Donald J. Trump has been President of the United States (POTUS for short) for almost seven months by August 1st and everyone should rightfully be terrified; not of him or his Presidency but the ominous parallels to our past. The Republicans have held a majority it he legislative branch along with the executive for […]

Woodpile Report

The current Woodpile Report is a good’un … as usual… maybe moreso. Regardless, I highly recommend going there and reading all of it. Skimming is allowed, but I suspect you will read. Prepare to bookmark and come back to finish. I give you one compelling bit below. Click the title to go see the entirety. … The Woodpile Report As I mentioned last week, there are a number of economists predicting a monster run up in the stock exchanges—near 30,000 on the DJI around the end of the third quarter—then a sputtering stall with a quivering violin note in the background, followed by an unstoppable, cascading crash sweeping all before it in the grandest reset since Pompeii. They present loads-o’-supporting […]
