JIM WILLIE — Critical Geopolitical & Monetary Update: NATO is Falling Apart & Germany is Breaking Away From the U.S.

from Paul Sandhu:

Dr. Jim Willie presents some important recent developments that bode ill for the dollar as Germany, France and other former allies and partners of the US are now aligning themselves with Russia, China and the BRICS bloc. Also, Willie’s source claims Blackwater mercenary group has been captured in Ukraine. “NATO is dead.”

MH370 & ISIS 9/11/14 FALSE FLAGS Alert

from SGT

As the US Government and it’s criminal Representatives in Congress and the mockingbird media set up ISIS as the new “all-powerful” Boogeyman to be feared, Lt. General McInerney says, “We May Not Have Seen the Last of Flight 370″ and that we should go to DEFCON 1.

Astoundingly, McInerney claims we might see MH370 re-emerge on 9/11/2014! Meanwhile, Mike Honda, a Constitutional enemy and Democrat from California has introduced a Bill to BAN Americans from buying or owning body armor. As I detail at 23:40 in this interview, we see FALSE FLAG operations again and again, with the underwear bomber, on 7/7 in London, and on 9/11 to name just a few recent examples. Beware of the very real possibility of yet another False Flag event in the days, weeks and months ahead.

The U.S. Is Now a ‘Third World’ Country

by Eric Zuesse, Washington’s Blog:

4.3% of Americans Survive on Less than $2/Day –

That’s Considered Poor in Even the Poorest Lands

Slightly more than one American household with children in every 25 is surviving on less than $2 per day of income from all sources. One quarter of that 4.3% (that’s 1% of all Americans with children) receive less than $1.25 per day. One third (that’s about 1.33% of all Americans) receive between $1.25 and $2. Another third of that 4.3% receive enough government benefits to be living on between $1.25 and $2 a day. A tiny 0.1% of that 4.3% are even surviving somehow on “Negative income & benefits.”

Who Shot Down MH17? The Ukrainian Military

By Michael S. Rozeff, Lew Rockwell:

The Malaysian commercial jet was shot down on July 17. On July 20, reporter Robert Parry reported from his source that Ukrainian government troops were responsible:

“What I’ve been told by one source, who has provided accurate information on similar matters in the past, is that U.S. intelligence agencies do have detailed satellite images of the likely missile battery that launched the fateful missile, but the battery appears to have been under the control of Ukrainian government troops dressed in what look like Ukrainian uniforms.

“The source said CIA analysts were still not ruling out the possibility that the troops were actually eastern Ukrainian rebels in similar uniforms but the initial assessment was that the troops were Ukrainian soldiers. There also was the suggestion that the soldiers involved were undisciplined and possibly drunk, since the imagery showed what looked like beer bottles scattered around the site, the source said.”

Exciting Times: A Whole New Price Discovery Paradigm Is Literally Around The Corner

from Gold Silver Security:

Although it is known that the physical gold supply is under stress, it has in actuality eased up somewhat in 2014 due to a mild slowdown in Asian buying. This is especially so if we are comparing 2014 to the Asian physical rush of 2013 when, counterintuitively, gold went down in the face of record levels of stimulus. We all know about the principle causes for creating the types of bearish chart readings we have continually been witnessing.

As stressed as the physical gold market is, I have recently covered some of the physical indicators to show that for now, some of the gold stock stress factors have eased up a bit. Not so, for silver.

In the coming days, I will be doing some analysis of global physical silver inventories using these same indicators. What we find is that there are some major physical pressures currently developing in this sector. I will expound more on this in the coming days.

Cooking Without Electricity

by Ken Jorgustin, Modern Survival Blog:

If the power goes out (grid down) and the electricity is off for a period of time, you will need an alternative method of cooking without electricity. Even your kitchen’s gas stove might require electricity to operate, so it’s best to consider multiple ways to cook and/or to boil water.

Here are a few ideas: One obvious cooking alternative is by way of a wood fire, perhaps with a cooking grate placed over it supported by logs, stones, bricks, etc.

A ‘rocket stove’ is an efficient way of utilizing a controlled burn of a wood fire – a method which uses little firewood to create a quick hot fire. There are several popular varieties available.

California’s Water Infrastructure on Verge of Historic COLLAPSE

from Natural News:

Water is increasingly hard to come by in drought-stricken California, where many farmers are struggling to get enough water just to pay the bills. But the situation in the Golden State is far worse than many people realize, according to new reports, as underground aquifers that take decades to recharge are being sucked dry, and water infrastructure that has long sustained the agricultural growing regions of the state continue their collapse.

Writing for The Washington Post (WP), journalist Joby Warrick draws attention to what many scientists say is an unprecedented collapse of California’s vast water infrastructure, which is marked by an elaborate system of canals, reservoirs and wells that transfer water from the mountains and other areas to the Central Valley. Altogether, the state contains some 27 million acres of cropland. This system is now failing, say experts, and the consequences will more than likely be unparalleled in California’s history.

When Will The Peak Oil Crisis Begin?

by Post Carbon, Oil Price:

For those following the world oil production situation, it has been clear for some time that the only factor keeping global crude output from moving lower is the continuing increase in U.S. shale oil production, mostly from Texas and North Dakota. Needless to say, once the fabled “peak” comes oil and gasoline prices are certain to move higher, triggering a series of economic events – most of which will not be good for the global economy.

Thus the key question is just how many more months or years production of U.S. shale oil (more accurately call light tight oil) will continue to grow. Many have answers to this question ranging from the “next year or so” on out the middle or end of the next decade. Some forecasts as to time remaining until the “peak” arrives are politically tinged. No politician, business manager, or even investor wants to hear that serious economic problems affecting their lives may be only a few years away.

Is it Crazy to Worry About the Golden Horde?

by Prepper Project, Ready Nutrition:

For years, I have listened to people in prepping circles talk about “The Golden Horde”. What is that you ask? Well, the golden horde is a concept that as far as I can tell was introduced by James Wesley Rawles. I like Mr. Rawles – have several of his books in my prepper library and I have been going to his website for years. Mr. Rawles is the writer of several prepper fiction novels (PatriotsSurvivors), and probably the first survival book I ever read How to Survive the End of the World As We Know it . He is also the owner of the popular website. Mr. Rawles’ golden horde concept roughly says that if we have a TEOTWAKI type of event, the major population centers will soon see a mass exodus of people out of the cities and into the surrounding countryside because the cities will be unlivable. The thinking will be to head to the countryside where there is more room, less violence, more food and a safer existence than in the cities.

The historical Golden Horde was a Mongol tribe back in the 13th century, but for the sake of Prepping and how the modern interpretation of this concept could apply to you, I will use Mr. Rawles’ own words in describing what he meant by this concept:

9/11 False Flag Operation: State-Sponsored Terrorism Triggers HUGE Blowback

by Mikael Thalen, Story Leak:

“The synthetic terror fabricated on September 11, 2001 is like a boomerang fashioned as a double-edged samurai sword. Just as the manufactured War On Terror has since produced ‘death by a thousand cuts’ in those countries targeted by the real Axis of Evil, the karmic boomerang will now return to those state actors who launched the 9/11 false flag operation .” – State of the Nation

After thirteen long years of one revelation after another, it has now been established that the 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington DC were perpetrated by the very same governments that had the most to gain from them. The US Federal Government, along with the UK and Israel, have each been implicated in the most purposeful and calculated, complex and premeditated false flag operation of this millennium.

Amish as Prepper Role Models

from Survival Blog:

This one is so obvious, I can’t believe that it hasn’t already been written for SurvivalBlog. All that I know about the Old Order Amish is gained from association with individual families in a couple of Amish settlements in southeastern Minnesota. These folks are reputed to be among the most conservative of the Old Order Amish, having not yet adopted many of the modern conveniences other Amish groups have seen fit to adopt. For instance, SE Minnesota Amish still use steel rims on their buggies and farm implements, they cook and heat with wood, and they use kerosene lamps and lanterns for artificial light sources. The cultural differences between Amish groups seem to be directly proportional to the distance between their settlements.

Amish history goes back for over 300 years (1693), to the heart of the Protestant Reformation. If you count the Mennonite connection, from which they separated, you could say it dates back almost 500 years. The first thing to understand about the Amish is that they are first and foremost Protestant Christians, and they are devout. A friend of mine pointed out that most of us Christians really have only two commandments left, but the Amish still obey all 10. With regard to religion, they differ from modern day Protestants primarily in that they are Anabaptist (adult baptism) and they are absolutely pacifist.

Bringing THE EQUALIZER to the Movies

by TheLipTV, via The Victory Report:


from The Burning Platform:

The two charts below are about one year old. The current average cost of a Big Mac is $4.80 in the United States according to the Economist. The price has risen by 5.3% since last July and 11% since the beginning of 2013. Meanwhile, the government drones at the Bureau of Lies and Shams tell us that inflation is only up by 2% since last July and up only 3.5% since the beginning of 2013. Which figures do you think are more reflective of what you are paying in the real world? I grocery shop every Sunday morning and I know for a fact my bill is up by 30% since the beginning of 2013.

The propaganda spewed by the government, bankers, and media is wearing thin on the average American. Only the dumbest of asses can’t figure out that inflation is running at 5% to 10% on everything we need to live our day to day lives. The article below is from one year ago and captures the reality of understating inflation.

John Williams: The Economy is in SEVERE TROUBLE — No Bank Bail-ins… INFLATION Instead

from USA Watchdog:

Economist John Williams says forget all the happy talk about the improving economy. Williams says “The economy is in severe trouble.”

Williams says, “When you see a contraction as we had in the first quarter, given all the upside biases that the government puts into the series, you know the economy is in serious trouble. The second quarter was reported at 4% (GDP). They revised it up to 4.2%. That is not much of a revision, and it is barely significant when you consider there is a margin of error plus or minus three and a half percentage points. Early numbers we have seen on the third quarter suggests that the third quarter is going to be weaker. The numbers for the second quarter . . . do not support 4% growth. There is no way that is happening.”

US Army Drills to Battle Political Dissent and Fight Crime in ‘Megacities’

by Brandon Turbeville, Activist Post:

As we’ve witnessed recently in Ferguson, Missouri, the difference between police and military is already nearly indistinguishable. In other words, the Army is already taking on peaceful citizens in domestic cities. Tank-supported SWAT teams already grenade and raid homes to serve warrants for victimless, non-violent offenses. What more can they possibly train for?

The U.S. Army is now officially getting into the crime-fighting business. According to the Army Times, the Army is training to fight battles in megacities, not against other armies, but to help local authorities root out shadowy criminals, extremists and, wait for it, wait for it, influential political dissidents.

The Army Times reports on this year’s Unified Quest war games drill:

History Repeats As Another US President Ignores Multiple and Credible Terrorist Attack Warnings

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

According to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), ISIS, nor any other foreign terrorist group poses no specific threat to the United States in the immediate future. The FBI, in a report released on August 13, 2014echoed the same sentiment despite the fact that last year’s Boston Marathon bombing and the 2009 Fort Hood shooting were both carried out by radical Muslim extremists.

The British Are Telling a Different Story

Despite the fact that the American intelligence agencies believe there are no foreign terror threats to the United States, the BBC is reporting that the UK, operating off o the same intelligence information as the DHS and the FBI, has led British Prime Minister, David Cameron, to state that the UK government raised its terror threat level from “substantial” to “severe”.

Spain Sells First-Ever 50 Year Bonds At 4% Coupon

from ZeroHedge:

Perhaps in order to celebrate its manufacturing PMI dropping from 53.9 to a below expectations 52.8, refuting the “growth story” promoted by its definitionally re-revised GDP (where the long overdue boost from hookers and blow is finally leading the country to new and improved Keynesian growth curves), moments ago Spain joined the likes of Canada, Caterpillar and Goldman and just issued, for the first time in its history, 50 Year bonds in a private placement. From Bloomberg:


And since there is no hope that Spain will ever repay this bond, whose rate is dictated by anything – mostly the ECB’s monetary policy – but the fundamentals it is functionally equivalent to Spain raising new equity without a maturity date and a 4% dividend.

by Kurt Nimmo, Infowars:

The police state will be rolling out in full force this Labor Day weekend, as police departments in several states prepare to violate their citizens’ Fourth Amendment protections, under the guise of keeping drunk drivers off the road.

Cops nationwide are warning holiday revelers they will be subject to mandatory blood draws if an officer merely suspects them of driving under the influence.

The practice, termed “no refusal,” involves police administering roadside sobriety tests, alcohol breath tests or forcibly extracting blood samples without a person’s consent, securing evidence which would aid a future conviction. A judge is typically on hand to issue search warrants, attempting to give the illegal blood draws an air of legitimacy in the face of blatant constitutional violations.
