A tsunami gives few warning signs before the surf is sucked out to sea by the massive incoming wave. Sensitive animals and wildlife already sense something is happening and head for high ground. But the people are caught largely by surprise when the massive wall of water comes rushing ashore washing away everything in its path. That is what is likely for the already staggering USEconomy.
The spectacular, unrelenting rise of gold, silver and other commodities are signs that those who understand the unfolding financial calamity are taking defensive measures to protect the purchasing power of their wealth. Gold and silver have been the unanimous choice through history as the most basic forms of money in any kind of advanced society. The metals market is not being driven by little retail investors, but by Big Money heading for the exits from the FiatMoney Casino.
Here are some of the warning signs that motivate BigMoney. Maybe they will motivate you.
- 12 Ominous Signs for World Financial Markets - doesn't look good, does it.
- 27 Signs That the Standard of Living for Middle Class America is Falling Like a Rock - too bad for us since the Middle Class has always been called the strength of the American economy and the proof that hard work, perseverance and savings pay off.
- US Preparing New Laws to Seize Americans' Retirement Accounts - greedy politicians know where the last cache of America's wealth is.
- Government Plots to Steal IRA's and 401-K's -- to be replaced with a government-guaranteed "annuity" (Like Social Security that now will go 2 years without a Cost of Living Adjustment. That's how much the politicians care about retirees.)
- Food Stamp Nation -- 42 Million Americans on Food Stamps!
- Amerika's Dependent Class of Midnight Shoppers (using food stamps)
- Mortgage Fraud and the Collapsing Fascist Business Model - this is an absolutely stunning analysis of the mortgage fraud, the criminal syndicate running the USGovt and the gold and silver rise.
- Cash-Strapped States Resurrecting "Debtors' Prisons" -- will it help get bills paid to throw debtors in prison and send the taxpayers the bill?
- Bernanke says US on the Brink of Financial Disaster - isn't he supposed to be encouraging us?
- Financial Hurricane to Collapse the System (alternate metaphor!)
- Coldest Winter in 1,000 Years on the Way -- what'll that do to food prices and availability?
- Super Rich Investors Buying Gold by the Ton - aw, whadda they know, anyway?
- Federal Reserve Selling "Paper" Gold and Buying Physical Gold - them, too?
- Food Prices Start Rising Worldwide (because of inflation and weather)
- We Killed the Golden Goose; Americans Receiving Unemployment Benefits Rises 60% in 1 Year - hmm, what happens after that?
- The Trillion Dollar Commercial Real Estate Bailout You Didn't Hear About - a trillion here, a trillion there; pretty soon you're talking about a lot of money!
- The Crisis of Middle Class America - doesn't look good for us.
- US Dollar Ripe for Catastrophic Devaluation -- so if the USDollar drops in value by 50%, what does that do to our retirement plans, the cost of foreign goods, food, etc.?
- Foreclosure Fraud: It's Worse Than You Think -- even CNBC can't help but report on it.
- We're At Risk for Financial Collapse -- UK Justice Secretary's Warning for Western economies.
- Foreclosure Nightmare: No Legal Foundation for MERS -- the implications are staggering.
- Obama Set to Flee America As Dollar Faces 50% Devaluation - even the enigmatic Sorcha Faal is on this one!
- The executive summary of the above is that the USEconomy is collapsing, and the USDollar will be drastically devalued in any number of ways. All dollar-denominated investments and savings will suffer loss of purchasing power. Moreover, the breakdown will couple with bad weather, food shortages, and a breakdown of the distribution system. This can all happen more quickly than anyone can imagine. Civil unrest, martial law, and increasing wars can easily characterize this period.
Les Visible, the "Dog Poet," has some of the most eloquent, simple presentations of the truth regarding the Banksters at the Root of Humankind's problems here and here. I urge you in the strongest of intention to open your mind, remove your mental filters, and read both of these very, very carefully. It is imperative that we all realize that at a basic level, the battle at the human level is between Banksters and their minions in the political, intelligence and corporate sphere against humanity. And the tough truth is, they don't care a whit about you, your family or your nation. You are disposable to their control agenda.
It is also true that the true Evil Bankster Cabal is very small, and there are many of us. They need to keep us ignorant of their existence, of their agenda, and in knee-jerk denial of anything that smacks of a "conspiracy theory." They depend on deceit ultimately to stay in power. But more and more people are waking up to their existence, and that has them panicked. The internet and all its spin off communications and research capabilities are exposing them and their methods. Even if they take us to war, which has always been their ultimate distraction and destruction mechanism, their days are numbered. The cat's already out of the bag, and millions of people worldwide are figuring it out.
Right now, though, you need to prepare you and your loved ones for the immanent crisis. I've written many times previously about this. At a minimum, it will involve major financial and economic disruption. Whether the Banksters throw in a good dose of plague, famine and war remains to be seen.
The truth is that you are just going to have to step outside the mainstream consensus that paralyzes so many into inaction and act on what you know to be true. You're going to have to have the courage to rely on yourself and those you trust because you know they know. They're the ones paying attention and not waiting for the cues for what's cool and what's not from the high school-like consensus leaders of the herd. The illusion of safety provided by the herd will not help you here. Sorry, but that's the truth. If you need inspiration for standing alone and deciding to do what's right, then you'll like this: High Noon in America. And this: The New American - A Rebirth of the Old Guard.
At a minimum prepare for 30 days of disruption. If we're lucky, that's all we'll have. That means food, clean water, personal supplies, medicines, self protection, your savings in gold and silver coins in your possession, and God's help. I have much more to say, but this is already too long.
Grace and peace and courage to you.
