Inflation has arrived.
While the mainstream financial media and government data continue to ignore it, inflation has begun to erupt around the globe. The signs are already clear:
Civil unrest due to higher costs of living (the Arab Spring, China, Africa, etc.)
Demands for higher wages (US, Germany, South Africa, Middle East, etc.)
There are three primary reasons for these inflationary trends:
We live in a global financial system of fiat or [...]
Long term: All entitlements will be cut off or made worthless through currency debasement
The question of disappearing entitlements isn’t just an EBT card issue, by the way. The coming financial collapse of the U.S. government will end all entitlements, including social security, Medicare and federal workers’ retirement pension payments.
That’s the real kicker in all this: In a society where 50% or so are now largely dependent on the federal government for their [...]

In the fabled 1960s, the cops were called pigs, and anybody on the political Left who wanted a ticket to the show knew that and mouthed it often.
At rallies, protests, and riots, people said: are the pigs here yet? I heard they were three blocks away. Wonder how many pigs they’re sending today? There! There they are! The pigs!
Now, on the Left, that tradition has morphed into: [...]
Imagine if suddenly, and completely without warning, the world experienced a total blackout – no electricity, no mobile phones, no banks, no internet, no TV, no emergency services. Nothing.
Highways quickly become jammed with cars that have ground to a halt; an aeroplane falls from the sky; a satellite view of the planet shows it rapidly plunging into darkness.
As it becomes apparent that the lights are never coming back on, nations [...]

Greek PM says no more austerity
AFP - Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras on Saturday promised his recession-weary nation that there would be “no more austerity measures” as international creditors prolonged an audit of crisis reforms.

SHTFplan Editor’s Note: The following interview is both informative and terrifying, and essential reading for anyone concerned about what comes next.
What the DHS Insider suggests is about to happen is exactly what many of us fear – a police state takeover of America, with urban centers to be pacified first, all outspoken critics of the government to be silenced, and travel restrictions across the United States to come shortly thereafter.
The dollar [...]

Grocery stores may still be stocked with food and most Americans are still able to keep their family’s fed, but with 50 million Americans requiring government assistanceto do so and prices on a seemingly never ending rise, how long will it be before the situation becomes unmanageable?
“The global food crisis you need to prepare for is now imminent.
For the past six years the world has consumed more food [...]

If Americans will trample one another just to save a few dollars on a television, what will they do when society breaks down and the survival of their families is at stake? Once in a while an event comes along that gives us a peek into what life could be like when the thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted is stripped away. For example, when [...]

They don’t call it Black Friday Madness for nothing. Once again, as in years past, America will go wild and demonstrate the worst of humanity; including fights, near riots, knocking down children, and full-on degeneracy – all in search of America’s Holy Grail: a good deal.
And it has arrived earlier than ever before, which ironically has led to protests within corporate monolith Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart spokesperson, [...]
While the communists in Europe unite to create riots, strikes and demonstrations spreading chaos and destruction, the nationalists (like the greeks) help by distributing food to the population.
The coming EBT riots
As Ron Paul explained in his recent farewell speech, the entitlements must sooner or later come to an end:
The wealth we see today is based on debt and a foolish willingness on the part of foreigners to take our dollars for goods and services. They then loan them back to us to perpetuate our debt system. It’s amazing that it has worked for this long but the impasse [...]
EBT cards are modern-day food stamps, except they’re electronic. In essence, they are government-issued debit cards that allow recipients to spend taxpayer money for their own groceries. But EBT cards aren’t merely good on food staples like beans and rice, they can be spent on processed junk food that promotes diabetes and obesity. That’s the “dirty little secret” of the EBT scheme: It encourages low-income Americans to become high-profit customers [...]

The video footage below shows how serious the situation is in Greece as cops battle protesters angry over austerity and the bankster looting of their country.
Americans may think this sort of thing can’t happen here, but the globalists plan to take them down too. The economic meltdown is a slow burn that will eventually lead to violence, but Americans will not be just throwing Moltov cocktails like the [...]
Monday November 5th is Guy Fawkes Day.
The Anonymous-affiliated are planning worldwide protests against government surveillance, as the following video declares:
As always, Anonymous supporters are likely to don masks with the image of their patron saint.
But for the first time, the smiling black and white masks that shield the identity of those protesters will be illegal in Canada (if the protest stops being peaceful).
