EU Collapse

Gerald Celente has made his predictions for trends in 2012, and they are grim. And the grimmest of his grim prognostications centers on Europe. Now, it is true that forecasting is a chancy business. You can be right about WHAT would happen and completely wrong on WHEN it would happen. Gerald famously said that everything would unravel in October, but it didn’t. Well, the reason why it didn’t was due to huge intervention by Germany, France and the US. The question is whether we will see a round of massive interventions that will again try to prove Gerald wrong. I … Click here to read the rest…

There Goes Europe

You know that sound that bombs make as they fall? Yeah, well, I’m hearing that sound from the direction of Europe. The only question is how big that bomb is and whether it will touch off explosions in the US. No, let me rephrase that last bit. …and HOW BIG the explosions will be in the US. The US made a strategic decision to prop up the EU, and it may be about to pay dearly for that.

Congratulations, You Owe $683,000

That’s a lot of money, and it’s your family’s share of the total debt supported by the US economy – assuming that you are in the US. Granted, there are more than just US citizens supporting the US economy, so maybe we could shave off a little here, and maybe a little there. But, still… if you add up all the debt in the United States, everywhere… it would come to about $56 TRILLION. And, you thought that GOVERNMENT debt was bad. The point is that debt in general is only sustainable if there is an economy that’s growing, and … Click here to read the rest…

Ouch, This Could Hurt

What I wrote on IsraelOutlook today was so positive… what I’m going to say next will dash cold water over everything… and, I hate that. In case you haven’t heard, 2012 is going to be a bad year. No, make that catastrophic. Twenty twelve is going to be a CATASTROPHIC year. The only thing that will save 2012 is if the ‘powers that be’ choose to continue kicking the can down the road. Twenty twelve will only be a good year if governments world-wide choose to borrow even more and push debt to even more insane levels – which will … Click here to read the rest…

War With Iran Draws Closer

It’s only natural to assume that it’s going to happen – especially if the Assad regime in Syria goes down. In fact, it is widely perceived as something that Ahmadinejad and Khamenei want. It would solidify religious and nationalist support within Iran and earn support for them from countries hostile to the US. And, it’s hard to believe that the US Navy could effectively keep the Strait of Hormuz open to tanker traffic. It doesn’t take much to sink a tanker, and the shipping lane is only six miles wide. Why, I could close the Strait with twelve Katyusha rockets … Click here to read the rest…

Crowdsourcing Analysis

It is interesting to see how certain democratic methods work. In this case, I’m talking about political analysis, and crowdsourcing seems to work better than most other, more expensive ways. I’m certainly going to look more into this. Take a look at the following videos and see if you aren’t as intrigued by this as I am: Interesting. At least with places like InTrade, you’ll get the prevailing sentiment of those who generally know what’s going on.

Shutting Down Persian Gulf Oil

Iran has threatened to do that if the world imposes further sanctions, or is attacked by the US or Israel. What they’re talking about is closing a tiny waterway only 21 miles wide called the Strait of Hormuz (although, the traffic channel itself is only six miles wide). And, 17% of the world’s oil supply flows through there. That represents a third of the world’s seaborne oil supply, and we haven’t even begun to talk about natural gas. The point is that shutting off a major chunk of the world’s oil and natural gas would have a catastrophic effect on … Click here to read the rest…

One More Reason to Move to Montana

It’s not like you really need one. Yes, I know that it’s cold up there, but these people are serious about the US Constitution and individual rights. And, the fact that there really aren’t that many people up there… well, it’s perfect for anti-social types like yours truly. Why am I all excited? Montana is about to issue (or die trying) a recall of their Federal elected officials in Washington D.C. because they voted for that obscene piece of legislation that is the 2012 version of the National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA. I hate the cold. I really do, … Click here to read the rest…

2012 Will Be Bad

But, you knew that. The question is ‘how bad’, and I’m not sure that anyone really knows. It might be more important to ask yourself if you are ready for the worst. Have you stored away basic necessities? Do you have a plan for when things get REALLY bad? I do, and you should too. Here’s another good article from Michael at theeconomiccollapseblog: A Very Scary Christmas And An Incredibly Frightening New Year Can you hear that?  It almost sounds like a little bit of peace and quiet.  This year, the holiday season has been fairly uneventful, and for that … Click here to read the rest…

Government After the Collapse

When you are trying to understand the future, you need to know your history. When you want to respond to what is happening now, you need to know your history. When you want to survive and thrive in difficult times, you need to know your history. Argentina went through financial collapse in 2001, and you need to learn from what happened there to understand what you should do now. What happened in Argentina is happening now in the US. Learn from that. What To Expect From The Government After The Collapse Fernando Ferfal Aguirre, December 23rd, 2011 The Modern Survivalist … Click here to read the rest…
