Via Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

While we are very far gone at the moment as a society, never forget there are millions of people out there fighting for what is right and we will succeed in ushering in a new and more positive era for life on earth.  These 11 minutes are well worth your time.

9/11 is intimately tied into all of this.  It is the crack in the wall. 

How many top elites killed on 9/11?  Zero.

How many held accountable?  Zero.

How many draconian measures of control instituted since 9/11?  Many, and rising.

Why torture?  To maintain a lie, extort a confession.  The official 9/11 narrative DEPENDS on the confessions that were extorted via torture.

A few days of sincere research and it all unravels.

Critics say that "conspiracy theorists" need a conspiracy for the world to 'make sense'.  Hogwash.  People can't look at it because it's like finding out that a favorite uncle has been molesting your little sister.

The complete and total worldwide economic collapse will solve most of our problems, if we seize the opportunity to round up, jail, and kill those at the top who orchestrated and conducted this laboratory experiment on us.

In no other time in history have the people had the tools to dispatch our overlords in the proper manner, using the internet to find out who they are, where they live using Google Earth satellite imagery/GPS, and the means with our guns and ammo piled up to the wazoo in our closets.

Just be ready to use all the tools you have at your disposal.

You're of course assuming they'll just run...not so, they'll adopt a 'Scorched Earth' Policy whereby they (The BIS to be precise) will destroy the financial system from within and let it implode (either shutting down all BIS servers, or block all Swift Codes except those which benifit their cause etc). This will ground all airlines, stop all shipping, deny seed and fertilizer to farmers, essentially they'll make it living hell within a month before you even get a chance to have a swing back at them. They are protected under Swiss Law, they are imunne to ALL prosecution and they have their own mini Army afforded to them under under diplomatic immunity within Swiss Law. By the time you get back on your feet, you'll be doing it Book Of Eli style....they will deny you all modern technology and transportation.

More than likely, they even have the UN under their control by now.

That's what I'd do if I were them. And you wouldn't stand a chance.

Here's their power: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0r3-MNonZ64

I'm counting on them doing this so we can more easily identify them. The people living in Europe will be charged to take care of that problem over there just as the people living in the US will be charged to take care of the criminals here. I don't really care if they use a scorched earth policy on us, that will just make the quickening happen much more quickly. American gun owners out number government employees 100 to 1. We then take control establishing a new currency as quickly as possible backing the currency using our Gold stored in Fort Knox. And God help them if our Gold isn't there.

Are you serious? Have you not seen at least one of those Black Friday videos, or that lady on the video in this thread crying for someone to help.

I'm sorry, but 99.99% of people are not self-sufficient. You will be snowed under by masses of men trying to take whatever you have, and women who'll do anything to feed their kids. If you look even remotely confident you'll be flocked by beggars wanting you to save them...I really don't think you have a clue what the situation will look like. You won't even be able to leave your home.

It will look like a Zombie Apocolypse without the Zombies. It will look like a post nuclear apocolypse without the radiation....understand?

Sandy left peole without electricity, some non-staple foods and water for what, a week or so....but they knew the rest of the world was out there still....imagine a month of nothing and knowing that nobody is coming to help.

Day 1: News announcements and panic. Banks close, forever!
Day 2: People in the streets wandering what to do.
Day 3: No food in any shops and looting starts.
Day 4: Mass panic. Police, Soldiers go home to look after family (security ends here).
Day 5: Most people will have little food left.
Day 6: Fuel runs out.
Day 7: Violence breaks out. People leave on mass to the country, by car, bicycle, and on foot.
Week 2: Nobody can find any Gov officials. Hopelessness sweeps the planet.
Week 3: People start eating people! (refer to Christian Crusades for evidence)
Week 4: Cities are a wasteland, survivors are underground hiding and only come out to scavenge at night.
Week 5: Running water stops (civilization ends).

Question: exactly where in this list would you need to gather an Army and fight back?

Answer: You won't need to anything, nothing will be guarded, you can waltz right on in to any Bank, Army Barracks, whatever. The Elites will be hiding-out for at least 2-3 years before they make any move at all.

At least Whales won't have to listen to 50,000 ships bangging and clanging above them anymore....peace and quiet; something all marine animals have never known, except some Turtles.

Food is grown everywhere. Many modern items cannot be imported. Medicine and medical facilities are limited.....and they have adapted to this and thrived.

What a bunch of crap! Mike, you obviously don't have a clue what is going on. This is not about currency collapse or coming shortages, this is about Global Tyranny, the likes of which have never been seen. So we're too smart to be fooled like those in the shopping stupidity? Think again. Think about the Russian revolution, where those smart people you're talking about were summarily executed in the simplest fashion possible, for being the smart people. Stupid manageable pigs were safe if they stayed out of the way and were willing to work, quietly. Maybe they don't know who the smart people are? Think again. Every email, every blog, every phone call or text, every fax, every book, every comment, every search,....... has been thoroughly examined and digitally archived. At the click of a mouse, you're a dead man. Your face has been scanned, your retina too, and probably you're DNA has been identified, you're such a sitting duck a blind man could see you. And we "the smart people" are going to pick up all the pieces and build a utopia? These "world leaders" aren't making economic mistakes, they've been planning this for many, many years, and everything is right on schedule. These people aren't just greedy, they're obsessed with cruelty and blood-thirst, and all the smartest people in the world haven't been able to stop them even though their plans are right out in the open. I know you mean well Mike, but you need to wake up, storing up supplies is always fine, but it's not going to stop what's coming and won't be around after it comes down like a ton of bloody bricks.

Whenever anyone asks you on why you think 9/11 is a conspiracy....and what would be possible reason would the corrupt corportocratic government would ever do such a thing and kill its own people?

Answer: "I have 3 Trillion reasons why they would do it.....and I'm probably being generous."

Two guys hold up a filling station and it's a "conspiracy" to make off with the cash.

Here we have 9/11 with, as you say, trillions of dollars and world hegemony as the loot (among other agendas) and people look the other way for fear of being labeled a "conspiracy theorist."  Mark Crispin Miller researched the history of "conspiracy theorist" and found it hit a marked turning point with the declassification of an April '67 CIA memo that suggested, among other things, that those writing JFK books be so labeled.  It hardly ever appeared in places like NY Times/Wa Post before then, but was applied regularly after that memo.

Though some 3/4 of Americans now believe that JFK was the victim of a conspiracy there is not one mainstream newscaster or analyst who holds that view.  Hmmm......

Elites understand their interests, agenda and power... and use it.  Surprise!

9/11 is intimately tied into all of this.

You don't have to go there.  The coming collapse will happen even if 9/11 never happened.

And it won't be debt collapse.  There is no "fiscal cliff".  Fed will print all the currency needed to keep funding deficits, $2 trillion deficits, $3 trillion deficits, even $5 trillion deficits, it doesn't matter. 

The government economy will continue growing while the private sector economy continues imploding.  Govt workers willl have paychecks while everybody around them loses theirs. Govt workers are the new upper middle class while much of the private sector middle class drops out of the middle class into poverty as the private sector continues collapsing.

DC and Wall Street are the new centers of wealth in America.  They get all the printed cash they want. $3 trillion a year now.  Maybe $4 trillion, $5 trillion, who knows.  If you work for Wall Street or the federal government your future looks pretty good.  You get paid from wealth stolen from everyone around you, but you don't care, you have your gravy train, screw everybody around you, you're better than them.

Even if it's only $3 trillion a year, it's enough to destroy the dollar before much longer.  No, there won't be debt collapse.  The federal govt won't go bankrupt.  Federal debt can grow to $50 trillion and things will go right on.

...until the rest of the world says "enough" and starts dumping rapidly debasing US dollars (and treasury debt).

That's when the collapse will happen.  It'll be currency collapse.  USD will lose reserve currency status and things in America go downhill rapidly from there.  Everybody still getting a paycheck will see the dollars in those paychecks lose value frighteningly fast.  Prices will skyrocket in response to the rapidly collapsing dollar.

That's when American society starts coming apart.  When people can't even afford essentials anymore.

But DC and Wall Street will escape much of it with their $10 trillion annual cash gifts from the Fed.  Maybe $20 trillion a year by then.

This will all happen whether 9/11 happend or not.

There will be no "revolution" to prevent all this from happening.  Fed will never be corralled and Fed printing presses will never be shut off.  The federal government will have 10 - 15 million well-armed loyal law enforcement people at their command to protect the staus quo.  That's way more than enough to control the American sheeple ...who will be spending their time looking for something to eat.

Of course sites like ZeroHedge will continue giving detail reports at each step of the process.  When federal debt hits $20 trillion ZH will fuss and fume over it.  When federal debt hits $25 trillion, $30 trillion, $35 trillion, $40 trillion, $50 trillion, more fussing and fuming from ZH and similar sites ...until they're shut down ...which might not happen, they give sheeple a forum to vent their frustrations, vent their anger, keep 'em docile, etc.

Is that the 'cool' position?

If you daughter, God forbid, were raped would you say "that's yesterday's news, move on"?

3000 people were murdered on 9/11, and it's an open question in the public mind as to 'who' did it.  Is "passe" your answer to the families?

Is "passe" your answer on the massive control fraud that Bill Black describes.  Should we 'move on'?

The Global War on Terror is propelled by this myth. A million Iraqi deaths are estimated, and thousands of US and coalition troops.  I think it's worth clarifying.

If you don't have the balls to stop paying altogether, at least only pay every 4-5 years where you can get a fat discount by negotiating a payment and paying with your newer depreciated FRNs... up to 80% discount is attainable.  Or put all your tax payments into gold and every 3-4 years cash it out to pay.  That way you get hold onto your money in case of any sort of collapse where you no longer have to pay taxes.

"...you cant invest in gold because it doesn't turn a profit."

I guess one would have to define "profit", eh?  For me, profit is the retention of purchasing power.  If others are losing the value of their fiat currency and I am maintaining mine (read: maintenance of ability to purchase the equivalent of my cost in acquiring the gold/silver), then I have a "profit".  That's pretty simple.   Explain it that way and you'll get more glazed-over eyeballs.  That would require a rudimentary understanding of what a "store of value" is for the explanation to launch.  Very few will get it.  But... why bother?  Ain't my/our job to help them beyond the first volley.   There is the Golden Rule which everyone knows, and there is the Platinum Rule:  Never do for another that which they won't take the time to do for themselves.

Okay so the video has succeeded in scaring me, so what's the long term solution after the bloodshed in the street becomes too much?

Here's my shot at a solution.  For a lack of creativity let's call it "The People's Movement."  Neighborhoods should start getting together with the sole purpose of being thinktanks for solving societal ills.  Each community thinktank should send a representative to meet within a district.  Each neighborhood representative in that meeting would communicate what is being discussed within each neighborhood.  This model continues up to a national level.  

Here are some of the ideals of "The People's Movement."  Rather than push for a life full of money and materialism, we take after the Bhutan's model and strive to create a national happiness index.  Scientists have been studying happiness for a while and have found correlations on what activites lead to happiness.  Strong relationships, acts of kindness, meditation, etc. are just a few.  Not surprisingly most of the data fliesin the face of a material and money centered society.  These should be adopted and put in practice within each neighborhood cell within "The People's Movement."  The common bond within the movement is a fear of how the status quo will screw over current and future generations.  

I'm short on details, here, but I do have them. The model is really not new.  It's loosely based on 12 step programs.  And while it may seem odd that I'd use 12 step programs as a model, as a recovering addict, I can spot America's behaviors and trajectories and without a doubt know that as a society our country is behaving just like an addict.

The 'answer' to any addiction, which you correctly identify as the core paradigm here in America, is the individual's personal decision to change.  But the ability to change and the decision to do so, are radically distinct things.

It doesn't take a village.  It doesn't require more hand-outs, or a "leg-up", or a big tent, or "power to the people" or any other "I'm just a helpless victim" distraction.

Decide.  Act.

SheepHerder, lovely sentiment and, of course, a nice set of ideas.  Utopia, however, will not begin unless the First Step is taken.  Recognition that there is a problem is required.   As with any addiction, one must admit that there is a problem, hence, a solution.   As long as there are throngs at Black Friday there will always be factions in our own neighborhoods who will thwart any attempt at change.   If you can get a group together the day after Thanksgiving to work on a common project, really work, then your core group is workable.  As somecallmetimmah has pointed out: "Decide.  Act."  I've decided and am acting.  If you wanna join me, great.  If not, get out of the way.  Keep coming back.

The 17th Amendment turned the Senate into a mob psychology beauty contest of special interest contestants and subsequently wrecked the balance of an exquisitely designed republic focused on local and states rights.

The US is a democracy - if the basis of your feeling better is reliant on your relative safety from the process of democracy, then get ready for discomfort.  Your so called republic is a representative democracy - and by this stage you should be aware, only the wolves get a vote.

 

Freedom is only available in anarchy - and any transition to anarchy after the collapse of a state is unlikely to be a pleasant transition - rather it will be punctuated by the gunfire of warlords seeking dictatorial control.

He told me several of the sheeple( and he used the word sheeple) stood directly in front of the door trying to look out. He knows about the fatal funnel and he and the teacher told the kids get away from the door but they just stood there like sheeple.

If you really want to know how we wound up as a "Lost Society", you need to face up to who "Lost" us. It's not like it happened by accident. It's the legacy of the Federal Reserve Act and the traitorous Fifth Column who rammed it down our throats. It's the legacy of the Coup of 11/22/63, when the last President with the stones to do something about the conspirators had his head blown off in broad daylight. It's the legacy of 9/11/2001 and how the events of that day were used to mask crimes and justify tyranny and war mongering.

We didn't get here by accident. We got "Lost" by design.

Brzezinski: US must stop following Israel “like a stupid mule”

Here's a snippet to whet your appetite:

"....By denying any US “obligation” to “follow like a stupid mule whatever the Israelis do,” Brzezinski accurately implied that this is exactly what the US has been doing up until now. And by plaintively opining that “the United States has the right to have its own national security policy,” the former National Security Adviser underlined the fact that since the assassination of John F. Kennedy, who secretly went to war with Ben Gurion in a doomed effort to abort the Israeli nuclear weapons program, the US has not enjoyed that right.

Brzezinski’s assertion that the US is being led by the nose like a stupid mule by the Israelis is perhaps the most candid statement of its kind ever uttered in public by a high-level US strategist. Brzezinski’s remarks reflect the mainstreaming of the arguments presented by leading US political scientists Walt and Mearsheimer in their book The Israel Lobby.

Indeed, Brzezinski has gone much further than Walt and Mearsheimer, who couch their critique of the tail-wags-the-dog US-Israel relationship in extremely cautious language. By laying it out so explicitly, Brzezinski is in effect joining the ranks of such scholars as James Petras and Grant Smith, who leave Walt and Mearsheimer in the dust as they boldly and accurately describe the outrageous, destructive, and quite literally criminal Israeli domination of the US. (As Smith argues in Foreign Agents, the hundreds of thousands of members of the Zionist Power Configuration described by Petras are acting as unregistered agents of a foreign power; if the law were properly enforced, they would all be in prison.)..."  Contd

This is bullshit.  JFK was killed because he axed Allen Dulles' abortive Bay of Pigs fiasco with zero US naval support, thus allowing the commies to takeover Cuba, and sending a message to the Soviets that the new American Prez was a pussy.  Emboldened, they ratcheted up the whole deal with nuclear missiles, that brought us to the brink of N-war in October '62.  The decision was made that Kennedy and his lineage-in-waiting had to go.

As for our debt-fueled, consumerist madness all being orchestrated by "old world banking families" who want to depopulate Planet Earth....ask yourself, "Why in the fuck are they trying to save the rotten corpse of Europe as fast as they can?  especially if it's some grand master plan for chaos and destruction?"  Shouldn't they be trying to drop-kick the whole Rube Goldberg assembly into the sea as soon as possible? 

And let's not forget the old standby, tried and true, when all else fails...blame the Jews.  Oh wow, how fucking convenient is that artifice? 

Dude, you got too much time on your hands to indulge in this kind of paranoia.  If it all comes unraveled like a cheap Soviet suit, it won't be for any of the reasons these guy give, especially the conspiratorial ones.  It will just be of its own inertia, and the real root cause will be what it always is: human folly.

Who cares what you think about 9/11? If you don't get it by now, there's little hope you ever will.

You need to think in terms of proportionality of threat...

Did Islam have anything to do with the creation of the Fed in 1913?

Was it "Islamists" who off-shored most of the good manufacturing and other jobs in this country in something they cooked up and called "globalization"?

How many Fed chairs have been Mohammedans?

Was it Moslems who lied us into any of several wars of the 20th C?

Is Jamie Dimon, Lloyd Blankfein or any of our other sick crime kingpins Islamic?

How many poisonous brain-destroying "media outlets" and filth-producing hollywood studios are Moslem owned and run?

Is Monsanto an Islamic family name?

Point is, if you feel the Jewish media creation known by some as "Islamophobia" poses "X" threat to your nation, livliehood and future, by definition you MUST rate the threat posed by the Real Terrorists as infinitely greater. Or not, but that would make you a brain dead dumbfuck.

Mostly you need to stop getting your "news" from Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh. I hear there are 12 step programs for that particular sickness.

Thanks for putting that together. I don't think the threat of Islamofascism is necessarily greater than the national debt, corrupt banksters, the Fed, the global elite, or fiat money. I'm just not dismissing that they really do want to spread their zealous religion by the sword. They intend to take it all over, the "diversity uber alles" crowd will either bow before them or piss their pants when confronted by jihadists. 9/11 to me is a puzzle, it's not clear, most historical events are not. However, the needle (maybe 55%) tips it to me believing the "general" narrative. Are there other motives behind the scenes? Certainly. Are arab dictators a good scapegoat for war? Certainly. It's a mirky series of events and I only believe that America should bring its guns home to fight the commies that are also taking over the country. It's a very bleak picture I'm afraid, and I don't think 9/11 is preponderant.

I don't think there's a terrorist around every tree, unless of course you're talking about Fed governors and paper pushers.

Israel is making sure Europe won't interfere with it's plans in the middle east as the old continent will be in a state of civil war.

Huxley missed it by some 1900 years as the Bible has already predicted a one world order and a one world ruler.  As always never wrong and ALWAYS up to date.

Predicting one world order/ruler is not clairvoyance. It is the simple, necessary end result of fractional reserve banking. They lend out more than they have in the vault thereby making whatever profits from interest they decide. With their profits they each buy all assets - including each other - until only a few own all assets.

If noone insists they lend only what they own, this is inevitable.

In Canada Paul Martin eradicated capital reserves for banks. Since 2001(ish) Canadian banks need not hold ANY capital to lend out. They just add zeros to your bank account when the bank has nothing in the vault.

Bernaise would be proud.  Yes, I consider this film to be propaganda.  Why, because it uses imagery to create frames of fear.  "The gubbermint wants a new world order."  "The rich want to have you for breakfast." etc.  Look, I share a bit of this fear, but hyping the fear without either a reasonable level of informative discussion, or recommended links to such information - is propaganda.

Further, I am perplexed by the side-taking or group identity aspect of discussions of economics/finance.  Some of you likely read Naked Capitalism where Yves Smith and the likes of Michael Hudson take a decidedly different perspective on the issue of debt and deficit spending than say, the likes of Karl Denninger, or Ron Paul.  Who's right.  Hellifiknow.  Frankly, given the diametrically opposed lines of thinking today on the blogosphere, I would really love to know what the risks of each camp are.  For example, Austerians believe that it is imperative that we reduce or eliminate budget deficits and actually work on reducing the national debt in order to encourage the creation of capital (savings) and confidence in financial instruments, etc.   The result of acting under this assumption would be that people, particularly poor people would suffer (hence the anti-austerity movement - OWS).  But, if we adopted MMT and its view that deficits are necessary to maintain demand and employment.  Acting under this assumption could (take your pick): destroy the currency, cause inflation, diminish confidence in markets, etc.  Because we can't, in advance, truly know the outcome of a policy, from my perspective, it would make a lot of sense to spend a bit of energy (hello post-doc candidate) detailing the warts of each camp so society could judge the risks prior to taking any radical course of action.

"Freedom" hasn't "reigned" in this society since Lincoln kick the crap out of the South.  This is a culmination of a corrupted, centralized government that cannot be stopped.  There will be no pieces to pick up because the pieces will be controlled and manipulated into the position the one world order will demand.

This idea that you or any of us are going to prepare and ride this out and there will be light at the end of the tunnel is a bunch of bs.  This next big crisis this video describes will be controlled and used to enslave what freedom there is left in this world.  Go ahead and store up a bunch of stuff like some boyscout.  All you are doing is stacking and organizing for those who will come and take it from you.  Your only choice when this happens will be to bow or die.  There will be no independence or freedom or survival.  All the goobers on this video are small thinkers at best.  You will bow to the will of the head of the collective or you will be consumed by the collective.  No hold-outs, no independence, no self reliance, etc.  There will be no brave new world.  There will be no utopia of freedom somewhere in the world like they have in all the doomsday movies.  There will be only oppression and slavery and you will keep your head down and do what you are told or they will just kill you or work you to death.  Hell, its about like that right now.

This country has had its fun and now we are going to pay for it.  Somebody has to live during those days and suffer the sins of their fathers.

Then you will die.

Freedom requires a willingness to die.  If you want freedom, then you must be willing to die to have it.  That is ONLY way it is obtained and the is the ONLY way it is kept.

Not saying you will bow or that I will bow.  But the alternative is death (fast or slow).  You think you could make it like Jeremiah Johnson?  As tough as I would like to think I am, I don't think I could make it in the mountains.  No body is going to sit on a sack of beans and rice and watch the rest of the world fall apart.  You and your AR and your buddies with their ARs is not going to amount to a hill of beans when the SHTF like this video describes.

We don't need to to be getting ready for the end of the "world's reserve currency", we need to find some men who swore allegance to the Constitution and start it up now while we still have some choices and resources.  The longer we wait the more the advantage goes to them.  If you CAN see the end, and it ends like this video suggest, then we need to find a drastic way to change the ending.  Lets die while it is still our choice and not theirs.

Get some of that!  Saddle your asses up and lets get some now.  Can't see how?  Well if you can't see a path now when things are calm and you have time and energy to think, then you damn sure won't be able to do anything meaningful then.

I hate to see this happen just like any other REAL American hates it.  But to say we can ride it out to a better world on the other side is BULL SHIT!!!  It wasn't a better world before the USA and it damn sure won't be a better world when the USA falls apart .....EVER AGAIN.

On a long enough timeline....

When we die is not the issue. The issue is whether we will die with dignity - and what that means for *you*.

For most of us it means protecting something or someone precious. Some will do that in battle. Others will do that in safehouses. Some will live in the "masters house" and use their influence to try to save a few lives. Others will sit on a bag of beans in the mountains keeping a few people fed and providing a sanctuary for hunted dissidents. We may not agree with how some try to die with dignity / live their lives. But if we have the same goals we are all working together.

I will not bow to any shit ass collective. And I will spit at anyone who asks me to do so. We have a bought-off Congress and all the lazy DC politicos for the collective kowtow dance -- they bow down and roll around like mangy dogs for the sacred collective commissars all the time because it's where they get their loot.

Better to bite your tongue and grind your teeth until you can get a good head shot from a quiet, unhurried location. Preferably from the back.

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

 

Look up tonight, at the full moon - for the last five hours, in our time zones, it has had a bright satellite star orbiting clockwise. There was briefly a polar opposite, it faded in the last two hours.

I will give you those things you thought unreal, The sun, the moon, the stars all bear my seal

Only kidding.  Next try? Nope. Closer. Even closer. Getting there. All inclusive. A bit of melancholy.

 

Let's make it more modern

 

 

Don't worry, I'm sure we can work it all out.

I will embrace all of your three casted in their entirety, a triptych, so thank you.

 

The fading of the polar opposite; it will come full next moon, and then we can dance.

I'm already practising.  always have been.

the next full moon comes with sharp cardinal square, and opposites not so attractive for some.  it's fitting.
