Congressman Urges Protection for Power Grid: EMP Attack “Could Bring Our Civilization to a Cold, Dark Halt”

Mac Slavo March 3rd, 2015 SHTFplan.com

When it comes to an EMP attack, the question remains “when” not “if” the SHTF. Few other scenarios hold as much potential for disaster and disruption to the lives of everyone in society. At a moment’s notice, 300 million Americans could be made instantly desperate – and even likely to die in the aftermath. A single event could easily be enough to take […]

by WashingtonsBlog Global Debt Is Almost 3 Times As Big As the World Economy

The Guardian reports that global debt has grown by $57 trillion dollars – to $199 trillion dollars – since the 2008 financial crisis.

The Guardian notes that global debt is now more than twice the size of the entire global economy:

OBAMA killed the pipeline, seized the Internet & cut off your ammo in just ONE WEEK!

Obama vetoes Keystone XL bill | TheHill

President Obama on Tuesday vetoed legislation authorizing construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline, rebuffing the new Republican-led Congress amid a furious battle over Homeland Security funding.

The veto — just the third of Obama’s presidency and his first of major legislation — was made in private and without fanfare, reflecting tensions in the Democratic Party over whether the controversial pipeline should […]

Currency Wars are a game everyone can play: Europe and Japan in a cage match, top economist/banker warns of global economic crisis due to QE

(NaturalNews) Way back in my university days, I was lucky to have a very good professor who taught a course in macroeconomics. On the first day of class, he introduced himself as an “economist” but quickly followed that statement with a disclaimer, saying that anyone can call themselves an economist.

I’d like to say right now that I am anything but an economist. However, I did learn a few things […]

GOLD: THE LAST SAVIOUR OF THE MAD FOLKS

BY JOHN WARD

Here’s one of those classic ‘TINA’ statements from a Spanish politician yesterday: “For Greece, there is no alternative to being part of European solidarity”.

It’s what real Nazis do; not the fake ones invented by the radical Left 30-40 years ago: real Nazis who know that if Greece pulls the trigger, it’s over for them. Nazis like Draghi, Schäuble, Blankfein, Samaras, Osborne, Dimon, Paulson, Murdoch, The Barclay […]

GREECE ‘ON THE BRINK': One news for the rich, and another for the poor

BY JOHN WARD

Greece, it seems, is suddenly in a load of trouble. A clear blue azure sky of eternal hope is threatened by large clouds. Syriza isn’t cutting it. It’s all over bar the shouting. Greece is going to be a pariah “on the same level as Zimbabwe” says the Daily Telegraph. “They’ve got ten days left” a senior journalist told me yesterday.

The situation with Greece is the […]

Unbacked paper fiat currencies are well and truly on the road to oblivion, and the lambs are being led to the slaughter of assets invested in sovereign debt, fiat currencies, and leveraged paper assets.

by Gary Christenson

One interpretation is that we are living in the best of all possible worlds. Another is that we are being led to financial slaughter.

A few thoughts:

 

1913:     The Federal Reserve was created and dollars have been devalued ever since.  (more paper, less gold)

1933:     President Roosevelt confiscated gold owned by American citizens.  (no more citizen held gold in the US)

1971:     President Nixon […]

East Coast Tsunami: If It Happens, MILLIONS Of Americans Could Die

By Michael Snyder

Could you imagine what would happen if a tsunami hundreds of feet high slammed into the east coast of the United States at several hundred miles an hour?  Just because it has never happened during any of our lifetimes does not mean that it can’t happen.  In fact, scientists tell us that there is a very good chance that it will happen someday.  And if it […]

At the moment, China’s biggest viral video is a two-hour documentary on pollution.

The most popular viral phenomenon on Chinese Internet right now has nothing to do with the color of a dress or a baby weasel riding a woodpecker. It’s a 104-minute-long documentary about the environment.

Produced and narrated by Chai Jing, a former investigative reporter for Chinese state television, the film “Under the Dome” is in the style of a TED talk or an activist Al Gore documentary, looking at the grim […]
