Author James Wesley Rawles: America Will Experience Weimar-Style Hyperinflation – People Have No Idea What COLLAPSE Might Look Like

Author & founder of The SurvivalBlog.com James Wesley Rawles joins us to talk about the financial issues we face, and the inevitable inflation which James says will be “Weimar-style”, which means HYPERINFLATION. Where it gets really scary is that precious few people are prepared and in James own words, “People have no idea what the collapse of Western civilization might look like.”

    Great stuff, glad to see that you are covering the survival aspects of a collapse. Having a pile of silver is only of so much use. Some people will not part with that can of Spam for anything you might offer.

    This is why I primarily focus on pre-65 coinage… most transactions that take place aside from bartering will be easily made in smaller diversified and divisible coinage. One of the areas I need to start working on is communication equipment & knowledge. Being in the location I’m at, I’m more likely to have to bug out rather than hold ground. I’ve been focusing more on portability and have been looking at short wave radios to add to my preps to build and keep contact. Unlike James suggestion, I’ve been quietly squirreling away my preps. Friends and family with the exception of my parents just DO NOT GET IT!!! and I can’t prepare for everyone… I just don’t have the means to do so. I have food… water… medical supplies/knowledge and other diversified preps… but I have much more to acquire while there is still time. In spite of all of the physical things that I stock up on… the most important is mental preparation. Knowledge is the one thing that can be hoarded without endangering OPSEC and most easily transportable… all you need is a brain…;)

    Keep stack’n… hold strong & go long…

      Hi “PitBull Pappa”

      My son-in-law found us a GREAT mobile HAM radio for 56.00 off Amazon. It is a “Baofeng” from China and I have to say it is nothing short of spectacular for the price.

      Son-in-law had never studied to his HAM license and in 2 weeks studied and passed the test at the 1st level with a 95% score.

      These radios will reach repeaters all over here and will “SIMPLEX” from me to him over 25 miles away in mountainous terrain.

      I had other plans and still do but now there the back up plans. I am amazed how clear as well. If you get one go to ebay and get the “Nagoya NA-771 female” and really reach out and touch someone.

      Hope that helps someone.

      • PitBull Pappa

        Thanks for the info… I’m checking it out on ebay now and I see a dual band ham/walkie that has caught my eye…:)

        Keep stack’n… hold strong & go long…

    Sean: Thanks for the interview. Have a great week. Looking forward to your next interview.

  • Louie

    Sean, that was a great interview and guest.
    Question….If the elites would like to depopulate us and live in a pre-industrial life style, how would that benefit them ?
    Who would build their homes, cars, boats, jets, etc ?
    Why would they choose to live without electric ?
    They live very well now, how would that lifestyle benefit them ?
    Thanks.

    • SGT

      Hey Louie, this is a very common question, and it makes perfect sense to ask it. We’re all decent people so it’s hard for us to imagine that there are monstrous people who would actually WANT to cause pain & suffering in order to enrich themselves.

      It’s very hard for most folks to believe that the controllers would “want” to destroy society and/or the economy. But once you realize that when the powers that be CAUSE the calamities on purpose so that they can then consolidate their power by buying everything up for pennies on the dollar – or with inflated dollars which THEY get first, it makes more sense.

      I tried to tackle this issue a while back with this rant that I made into a video. Hope it helps:

      WHY ARE THE “ELITE” DESTROYING AMERICA?

      • As Huxley said, “There has always been a controlling oligarchy and there always will be”.The history of this goes back four thousand years to Ancient Babylon.You can read aLL about it in Helen Blavatsky’s book:THE SECRET DOCTRINE. The hand full of individuals at the very top of the pyramid believe themselves to be GODS and rule by devine right.They beleive they have throught initiation evolved/reincarnated throught the ages by managing their KARMA along with the help of their benefactors from THE GREAT WHITE BROTHERHOOD & THE SOLOR LOGOS located in the heavens/stars/planets/zodiac.They believe that the Earth is alive(living/breathing) and evolving,just as individuals are evolving and progressing(where have we heard that word) towards an ultimate union of devine humans with the ever evolving devine Mother Earth.Their plan is to rid/cleanse Mother Earth of the useless eaters,Earth killers,ants,polluters,vermin as with an infestation of rats the require extermination, the Profane uninitiated with bad KARMA.They plan to carry out their plan of depopulation of the Profane through another World War, Pestilence,all manner of biological infection,famine and ultimately by an implant(Digital Currency & tracking)) to control those who will accept their Promulgated World Government. Those that will not accept the chip or their terms and conditions will be rounded up for execution as enemies of the solution to World Peace.You can read all about who/what you are dealing with in THE SECRET DOCTRINE, THE PROTOCOLS OF THE LEARNED ELDERS OF ZION.Their end game can be read here: Re 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
        Re 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
        Re 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. Re 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. If anyone thinks this is a game,they err in judgement, it’s creative destruction/Tekun Olum(repairing of the world).They didn’t create the Global Seed Bank off the coast of Norway for you and me.

        SGT,
        At 4:28 JWR says that currently “The interest payments alone are close to a third of government spending”.

        This is not true. The current net interest payments are about 5% of total government spending according to multiple sources including this YouTube video that you linked to a couple of days ago http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asRDOhgN70Q&feature=plcp

        What am I missing here?

    • Freedumbs'ear

      This is all nonsense and a distraction from the truth. Get informed

      • PitBull Pappa

        That was very educational & enlightening… thanks for posting that link. It was definately worth the hour and fourty five minutes… I saved it and plan on watching it again and taking notes for further research.

        keep stack’n… hold strong & go long…

        PBP

        • Freedumbs'ear

          You are welcome. I tend to get a bit grumpy at the pace of my brothers and sisters awakening. I implore those of you that are awakening to study the legal system,commerce and religion and how it is all tied together to control you. Satin the great imposter is using the Bible to work his world/matrix of deception. PEACE.

  • Steelerdude

    Thanks Sean. I see that James is giving the dollar 18 to 24 months life expectancy. I think once the collapse in Europe goes full stream, our banks have only a matter
    of weeks…Im going to stick with Max’s prediction of April at the latest when
    everything falls apart.

  • Upstart

    The Bosnian conflict was about as bad it gets – particularly in the urban areas which were under siege.

    Based on what I know of the Bosnian conflict my preps are not so much based on ‘survival’ but the avoidance of the many fates which are indeed worse than death.

    If anyone thinks that death is the worst thing that could ever happen to them or their loved ones then they have never seen, and certainly never experienced, true evil.

  • Ty

    anyone ever read “when technology fails”? its another excellent books for reverting back to basic technologies

  • I like JWR. But putting hope into the political process? I don’t think so; not me. I say we transcend it altogether and go for a truly free society.

  • clint

    Hey Sean,

    Great to have Mr. Rawles on. The preper of preppers! Thanks for the interview!

  • Jj

    Be prepped long enough to make it through next year’s growing season. Those who must leave home to forage will be rounded up, and that is where you do not want be. America will quickly begin to Reset, but She will have no time for the Needy. Troublemakers will be dealt with rudely, probably by able bodied citizens acting as volunteer deputies behind your local sheriff. You and your neighbors will lock down your street, and suffer no strangers. Period. Each area will have an official contact person, possibly your current Precinct Committee Officer. Get to know them now. They are officially recognized as elected to represent your neighborhood. Look forward to the America we will be tasked with rebuilding. Elect 12 neighbors to deal with any and all civil complaints. Rely on your own reading of the Constitution as though it is 1784 all over again. No country has ever survived such debauchery. We will be the first.

    • uncviper23

      “Precinct Committee Officer” I have NO clue of what one of those are friend.

      Sounds foreign to me. Mind clarifying?

    • Jj

      Every area has different names. It is the beginning elected level to representing your neighbors. I am the republican, and assume there is also a democrat PCO. I don’t care. Neither do a whole bunch of people who are doing it for the first time. The PCO’s hereabouts are coming together irregardless of what they are “supposed” to be doing. We began showing up at our local caucus, increasing attendance from 150 four years ago to 1500. I am hugely relieved to see, and now begin to know, all these folks. It is the America dreamed of.

    SGT,

    Great interview – I immediately went to the survivor blog website and noticed that they posted their IP address, since it is relatively easy for the government or a hacker to hijack your domain name. I think this is a great idea which I think you should post on your web-site as well. So many people turn to your site for the real news and it would be a shame if we could no longer access it due to some domain name blockage.

    A

    • SGT

      Thanks Andreas – the IP for SGTreport is: 184.168.239.1
      (I think)!

      • ChainMailArmor

        godaddy websites use shared ip addresses by default and you cannot directly link to these “shared” ip addresses. You will need a dedicated ip in order to do this. It’s about 6 bucks a month.

        peace

      • Andreas

        Sean,

        I tried the IP address with no luck. Either way, I think you should post the IP address on your main page so that your frequent readers can bookmark it for future use.

        Thanks

  • Hman

    Sean, great interview. I would like you to ask your guest next time if a houseboat as a getaway plan is a good idea. You have generator on board, water RO unit, you can leave the shoreline if you need, you can fish for food .. etc.

  • dunimir

    Here’s another doomsday Mormon effen-around with the idea of civilizational collapse while making money off of the naive. A self-fulfulling prophesy, Mr. Rawles?

  • Joe

    Although I give credit to JWR, his knowledge is academic, and you will go absolutely broke if you follow his philosophy. Of course beans, bullets and baid-aids are a given, but he suggests way more than that if you’ve read his material (I have read 2 of his books and spent many hours on his blog),and it is just not feasible unless you’re quite wealthy. If you want to get first hand knowledge of what it’s really like to live through a financial collapse, and know what is absolutely necessary to prep for, then read “The Modern Survival Manual: Surviving the Economic Collapse”, by Fernando Ferfal Aquirre. This man actually lived through the collapse, wrote a book about it, and managed a blog site during it–themodernsurvivalist.com Folks, this guy is the real deal–a street smart Argentinian who lived it. A couple points, Ferfal points out that during the Argentinian collapse, the cities were the first to be “secured”, while the outlying towns and farms were not. Ranches and isolated areas were often targeted by thugs because of this. This goes contrary to JWR retreat philosophy. Another thing, during a collapse, people still have to work and make money to buy food and necessities, as well as pay bills–everyday life stuff. Life still goes on; it’s not TEOTWAWKI. Cities are where the jobs are. Relocating “out of dodge” is just not realistic. Granted, when SHTF initially, there will be much turmoil in cities, but they will be, by necessity, brought under control before anything else. Keep things real folks. Remember, as educated as JWR is, he has never lived through an economic collapse, and he also writes books that he’d like to sell. In addition, I know Argentina is a much smaller country and can’t be completely compared to the U.S. However, the insight brought on by Ferfal I believe is a better starting point, than prepping for JWR’s TEOTWAWKI.

    • Jj

      HooYah, Joe. Exactly. It will be dicey, but we will get through this. Let us focus the lessons on an America the Founders envisioned. We now know the corrosive effects unbridled money power will work. It is time Hamilton sat down, and Jefferson stood up.
