Truth is treason in an empire of lies.

Economic Collapse Scenario- My Best Guess

with 41 comments

There are plenty of prepper websites, books and discussion forums out there, all of them discussing SHTF/WROL survival.  Some of them, such as the forum at http://www.shtfschool.com, are very good.  And naturally, nearly all of them try to make a few bucks here and there, via advertising, selling books, knives, survivalist gear, “zombie” gear, and so on..  Great.  More power to them, in my not-so-humble opinion…  God help me, if I ever go mall-ninja-survivalist.

Today’s thoughts actually revolve around something that was asked of me to make, a sort of common-Joe’s view of what will happen should the Trans Pacific Partnership “trade” deal pass.  The truth is that nobody can do that, since the full details are held in strict secrecy (making me conclude that it’s NOT good for America, Americans or our wallets).   The TPP- like NAFTA and CAFTA- will result in the same thing:

Any questions?

Oh,  some details are leaking out- gun confiscations and ammo bans, the official torching of our Constitution and basically the end of America.  Our feckless leaders have sold out the country, and the only way to fix that fact, is with rope and lamp-poles.  Let’s face it;  the USA that we remember simply doesn’t exist any more.  Elvis has left the building, and we’re stuck picking up the tab.

And the tab, is what I can write about to some degree.  A little background on me: Bach.Sci. in Economics, MBA and a doctorate in Information Systems (not an IT degree, in reality it could be better termed “data analysis for command-and-control decisions).  Basically, I’m an economics geek, have been for 20 years, and the education really started when I finished school, and compared what is supposed to be, to what is.  No real surprise, the differences are stark.

I’ve discussed the Cyprus “bail-ins” that occurred a while back, in some detail.  The legal justifications have been adopted world-wide, and can be summarized as follows: “your money becomes the banks’ money as soon as you deposit it in your checking/savings account.”  You no longer own that money, you’re just an “unsecured creditor.”  So if the bank(s) get in trouble, such as during a bank-run, they can take your money, use it for whatever purpose they want (including nice bonuses to themselves), and you are now a stock-holder in a defunct/broke/zombie bank.  Kind of like this:

bail-in

The natural response to that is to pull your money out of the bank, right?  And I said in the Cyprus essay, if you pull your cash, and buy tangibles or precious metals, this will cause the entire economy to collapse.

How do they intend to get around this problem, and make it so that that can steal ALL of your money (aka “bail-in”)?  Simple: make it “illegal” to use cash.  So you will NOW have to do all transactions in digital cash, they’ll have access to it (read that as “the ability to steal it), and they pay 0.01% interest on your checking account.  So basically, you GIVE them your money, they give you no paper interest (and with real inflation running at 7%) and YOU are paying THEM 7% to have the right to gamble with your money, and the right to steal your money when their gambles go bust… And their gambles WILL go bust, because the five biggest banks have $40 TRILLION in bad derivatives hanging out there (GDP of USA is $15T).

Speaking of these big banks, don’t forget, they will happily snitch you out to “Big Brother” if you dare to retrieve an unusual amount of cash…  They do NOT want you to pull their gambling funds….

I’ve also discussed here, that the dollar WILL collapse.  Everything I mentioned in that essay has been going right on schedule, and we’re closer than ever to a SHTF event.  Indeed, all the signs indicate that the SHTF event has already started…  As I mentioned in my last post, the Chinese bank AIIB has already been adopted by everyone who has any kind of functioning economy.   Notice the USA and Japan are not included in that list of countries signing on to the AIIB, mainly because the American and Japanese economies are no more functional than Africa, Italy or Greece, for that matter…  Yes, we’re in that deep of trouble…

An interesting aspect is that China has been sitting on some $1 trillion of U.S. debt in a variety of debt instruments.  They’ve been slowly selling off that debt to other countries (for American dollars, which is why the dollar has enjoyed a recent resurgence in exchange-strength; since the debt instruments are denominated in dollars, you have to sell them in dollars, creating a temporary demand for them).  Then, they take the worthless dollars, and use them to buy gold from all over the world, in quiet cash-transactions.  In this manner, especially in the past year, they’ve acquired a significant amount of gold, estimated anywhere between 3,510 tons of gold to more than 30,000 tons of gold.  In contrast, the US Treasury claims to possess 8172 tons of gold, and the problem with this claim is that when several allied countries have asked for their gold back, the Fed basically told them “we’re not going to deliver.”  Which means, of course, that either the gold is gone- stolen- or it’s legally encumbered…  the latter being a polite way of saying, there are multiple players claiming ownership to the same gold bullion.

Why does this matter?  Because a gold-backed currency is always preferable to a fiat currency, backed by nothing but blind faith in the issuing government.  But to have a gold-backed currency requires the issuing country of that currency to have an overwhelming majority of the gold…   A gold-back yuan (or renmimbi) will further undermine and collapse the dollar; everyone wants an asset that holds its value, as compared to an asset that depreciates every year.  China has stated this is one of their goals, and now it’s happening, exactly as I’d previously described (nice to know that Forbes agrees with my analyses, LOL).

I apologize for the boring economic analyses, but I will quickly finish one last point, and then we’ll connect all the various dots, and extrapolate possible outcomes.  In a previous post I flatly stated that the prices of gold and silver are artificially suppressed to make the dollar appear more valuable than it really is.   If it was able to be freely priced in the market- assuming a free market actually existed- we need only divide the number the number of dollars in circulation by the number of ounces mined to find what the REAL price of gold is in dollar-denominated terms.  [Keep in mind, this simple model ONLY works if the USA has the largest gold-holdings on the planet.]   Total M3 money supply (dollars) is estimated to be $17 trillion, and total gold mined =174,000 tons or 5,568,000,000 ounces.  [Notice that we can only estimate M3 money supply, as the government decided to no longer report these numbers as of 2006.]  Using this metric, we can conclude the actual price of gold (in American currency) should be $3,053 per ounce.  Compare that to the current price of $1,223/oz; the perceived value of the dollar is overstated by 60%

Now just imagine what will happen to the perceived value of the dollar as China announces they have large gold-reserves, compared to the laughable claims by the US Treasury that America has any gold left…?  When it becomes clear that American the gold has been stolen, the treasury is empty, and we have nothing left to back the dollar….?  It’s going to be a very bad day, when China backs the yuan with gold, effectively killing the last perceived value of the dollar…  people will flock to the yuan, and rush to dump their dollars as while they still have some value left…  And the value of the dollar will become its’ intrinsic value; a piece of paper with ink on it.  I suppose it’ll be good to start up the wood-stove…

dollar-burning

So let’s discuss what will most likely happen during a collapse of the dollar, first as the worlds’ reserve currency, and then the complete devaluation of the dollar.  There are several different ways that China (and Russia) can torpedo the FRN:

  • China announces the yuan will be a gold-backed currency
  • China announces they will no longer accept dollars for international commerce
  • Saudi Arabia (now heavily backed by China) announces they will no longer accept dollars for oil
  • China and Russia announce they’re dumping all US debt instruments

Any one action will cause the slow collapse of the dollar; any combination will be an economic version of Pearl Harbor, but with far more devastating results.

There are many theories of what will happen, when the dollar falls.  At this point, I’m not going to link to them; they range from a hyperinflationary collapse and Mad-Max scenario, to deflationary depression of a similar nature to the Great Depression.  But either way, with most countries holding dollars as their foreign-currency reserves (especially the EU), the collapse of the dollar (or the Euro first, causing the collapse of the dollar) will be a cascading event that will wipe out the last vestiges of functioning economies throughout the Western world, and will most likely cause the collapse of the Chinese yuan and Russian ruble.  China, because their entire economy is built on manufacturing cheap shit that the Western world buys, and Russia because nobody will have money of any real value to purchase their oil and natural gas.

Any way it starts, prices for all consumable goods in the USA will go up by 300-400% almost overnight, as foreign exporters reject the dollar for trade.  Such exports will have to be purchased using other currencies, which will require increasingly valueless dollars to purchase so that the transactions can be made in a different currency.  Shale oil will suddenly become financially viable again (for a short time), as the price of oil will skyrocket.

Retail chains like Walmart will be crushed, as their prices will necessarily spike, and people revert to the basics; beans and band-aides.  Those who are on a fixed income (retirees, welfare and EBT recipients) will quickly discover that while they may still have money, it’s not enough to put gas in the tank of their car, much less food on the table for their kids or themselves, and be instantly impoverished.

The Fed will try to make the dollar attractive to foreign investors, by raising interest rates; a case of too little, too late.  This move will collapse the housing and stock markets, the latter losing 40-50% of their value over a period of maybe two weeks, fatally wounding the too-big-to-fail (too-big-to-jail) banks, who’ve relied on no-interest loans from the Fed to gamble insane amounts of “free” money in a vain attempt to earn a “profit” in a rigged market.  The skyrocketing prices of products such as food and gasoline, combined with the Fed raising interest rates, will result in the biggest real-estate crash in history, causing banks to repo homes from delinquent borrowers, in a vain attempt to recoup some cash.   This will be the coup de grace for the banksters, wiping them out as any REO properties will sell for maybe 20-30 cents on the book dollar, forcing the banks to document their massive losses.  The banksters will perform government-approved “bail-ins,” stealing depositor money in a vain attempt to forestall the inevitable, and the FDIC- assuming they haven’t already been wiped out covering the first losses- will look the other way, as the in-your-face banks thefts occur.

As the now-unwanted dollars come flooding back to America from all over the world, consumers will attempt to use them to purchase the necessities of life, driving the prices higher, and increasing the demand for more dollars from consumers.  This will quickly lead first to high inflation, and then to hyperinflation, as more and more dollars chase after a dwindling supply of goods.  The raising of interest rates by the Fed will not slow the stampede from the dollar; a gold-backed currency will be infinitely more appealing to the wealthy, than to even consider a collapsing FRN.  Instead, the increased interest rate (both Fed induced and market-induced) will cause the Federal government to be unable to keep rolling over their debt instruments as they mature, causing the government to default on more and more debt instruments; borrowing costs will go ballistic, until they quickly reach a point where total revenues collected by the U.S. government will be insufficient to pay the interest on existing debt, much less fund anything like Social Security, Medicare, government pensions or military/NSA/CIA activities.  Military service men and women will be left stranded in military bases spanning the globe with no funding, no food supplies and no fuel to get them home.

At home, riots will break out in every major city that has a significant population dependent on government handouts, as the handouts eventually stop, and the government defaults on the “entitlement” crowd.  In response, the government will attempt to crack down on agitators, “terrorists” and anyone else who doesn’t allow the government to “save” us with martial law, the confiscation of all assets, money, property and even your labor (in accordance with various Obama executive orders).  The collapse of all money-based commerce will lead to further riots, as the impoverished who’ve lost everything, demand vengeance, and this will lead to Civil War II.  It’ll be the government against the people (whoever hasn’t already died of starvation, in the riots or at the hands of government troops).

Contrary to the generally accepted idea that having no debts will save you, there will be a LOT of winners when the collapse of the dollar occurs; those individuals who were under the heaviest debt-loads, such as college graduates, home buyers who had mortgages, people who bought expensive cars on credit.  The massive amount of devalued dollars floating around in the market will allow them to easily pay off their debts, while those who diligently saved their pennies  will have their savings confiscated by the banks or watch the purchasing power of those savings reduced to absolute zero.  It will also hurt those who worked so hard to pay off their houses, as their perceived “investment” will be wiped out, and they will be on parity- if not worse- than those whose debts will be erased by the currency collapse.

Those who will fare best will be those who keep a large amount of cash in their physical possession so as to pay bills (such as a mortgage and property taxes) and keep your assets until the banks- and eventually the currency- collapse.  Until the currency collapse occurs, having significant cash in your possession (at least 4-6 months of your total current expenses) will allow you to purchase merchandise/food/ammunition/guns as needed; remember, the bail-ins will wipe out almost everyone else who was stupid enough to leave their money in the bank.

'... Well, if I were moving to Cyprus, I'd put all of my money into mattresses.'

After the currency collapses, I would guess that silver and gold will become the medium of exchange for larger transactions.  Gold will necessarily increase in perceived value per ounce, but silver will increase at least triple the perceived value increase in gold.  By that, I mean it historically took 15 ounces of silver to purchase what would cost one ounce of gold.  Right now, the silver/gold ration is 72:1.  So as markets revert to precious metals, those that rely on silver more than gold for a store of purchasing power will see an effective “profit” of at least 480%.  There are reasons to argue the silver price will achieve parity- if not exceed- the price of gold, due to a variety of factors.

The above snapshot is my personal opinion of the most likely outcomes, given my advanced education of economics combined  with extensive historical research, observing the behavior of our current crop of “representatives” in DC, objective analysis of both the Federal Reserve and of the Chinese banking systems, analyzing the moves they’re making, and extrapolating logical outcomes.

TPP + Jade Helm 15 = Civil War

with 6 comments

 

A lot has happened since I last wrote anything here; the continued attempts to provoke Russia into a European war (and Putin masterfully avoiding said attempts, while demonstrating the overt hypocrisy of the Western countries), and the failed attempts to isolate the Chinese Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (as shown by the picture below).

AIIB-Asian-Infrastructure-Investment-Bank-Countries

As well, people are becoming aware of the continued economic decline of the USA despite all propaganda efforts by the government and MSM; indeed, actual GDP has been in negative territory since ~2005. The propaganda efforts cannot hide reality.   2/3 of Americans know we’re heading in the wrong direction. When the MSM actually publishes prepper “how to survive an apocalypse” articles, you start to grok that preppers aren’t so crazy, and that the MSM has been forced to (finally) print the truth. Now, many “alternative” economists (i.e., those NOT lined up at the government trough) are screaming that you need to protect your wealth NOW, before the TSHTF.

All the signs point to the same conclusion: the American empire is dying, and the complete collapse of the dollar is imminent (see here, here, here and here).

From a high-level perspective, what exactly happens when the currency collapses? For the power-elite, they will know ahead of time (just as happened during the 1929 crash) and get their money out, or manipulate the system to go from being merely rich to obscenely rich. For those within government who use government-created digital dollars to buy favors/kick-backs/bribes, the collapse of value will destroy their power, and they will be left high and dry. For the normal people on the street, they will no longer be able to purchase anything using currency, much like what happened during the Weimar hyperinflation or (even worse) Hungary, suffer extreme poverty and starve.

While the truly wealthy will be happy to prolong the current situation as long as possible (since they can milk the Federal Reserve until the very end), they have no particular need to crash the system, as long as they can take advantage of Cantillon effect in the current game. That is, as long as they get access to the money first and can take advantage of its purchasing power before it’s inflated away, they’ll continue to reap profits. Government drones and lackeys will want to prolong the game as long as possible, because when it’s over, so are they.

This brings us to the current military exercises in the Southern USA, called Jade Helm 15. Some very interesting aspects to it, most notably its scale; it’s the biggest military “training” operation ever conducted within the USA, and directly involves active involvement from all levels of government and law-enforcement, from federal agencies (FBI, DHS, etc.) down to local law-enforcement, with the armed forces blending in with the public, so that they can practice “snatch and grab” operations. The territory covered is best shown by a quick map:

jadehelm15

Notice how the entire Southern border is completely covered? Does anything about this strike you as somewhat odd?

Next, we Obama pushing for “fast-track” passage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, another supposed “trade deal” like NAFTA and CAFTA (which have done so much to help the USA, by shipping all manufacturing out of the country, and impoverishing literally millions of American workers). Despite their best efforts to keep details of TPP secret, they are getting out via wikileaks, and the latest details are stunning: “Gun import bans … Microstamping of firearms … Ammunition bans … The full implementation of the anti-gun UN Arms Trade Treaty … Illegal amnesty which locks in millions of new, anti-gun voters.” Indeed, the banning of all weapons is the stated goal of the U.N. “In New York, right here on our own shores, we’ve got a Trojan horse. They won’t accept U.S. firearms policy. They want to take the decision away from the U.S. electorate and undermine our Constitution.” Ambassador Faith Whittlesey, US Delegate to UN Small Arms Conference, January 2012.

The TPP will effectively strip the USA of her sovereignty, and the Constitution will be a historical footnote (if they get their way).

IF Obama is successful in pushing through the fast-track adoption of the TPP (with its hidden gun-confiscation and unlimited immigration from the Southern border, I would imagine everyone legally living on the North side of the border is going to be highly pissed that the floodgates have suddenly been opened to every parasite in the world, and even more pissed off that the antigun agenda is being forced down their throats. But with Jade Helm going on in the exact same area, that “training operation” can quickly become a full-on military operation, complete with UN ambulances, armed trucks and tanks.

jadehelm15 ambulence

jadehelm15 armored truck

jadehelm15 humvee

jadehelm15 tanks

Now, you’re probably thinking to yourself, why would they intentionally provoke a massive uprising by ramming through TPP now, and then having the military move against those who are pissed off? Why take the risk?

The answer is best summarized- of all things- by a quote from the movie Independence Day:

“It’s like in chess: First, you strategically position your pieces and when the timing is right you strike.”

If economic collapse occurs, there are no assurances that the power elite will retain their power. It’ll be a dicey thing, and there’s no way to know how the military and government lackeys will react, when they realize there will be no more paychecks coming in digitized dollars. But if the power-elite light the match themselves, they may be able to control the situation, retain power and become even more wealthy.

I think there is a very real possibility that the TPP will be forced through, allowing the floodgates to open on the Southern border, and gun confiscation to begin in earnest. I further believe that the successful passage of the TPP will result in another Civil War, and the people that will suffer first will be those who live close to the Southern border; the same exact areas where the Jade Helm troops are now deployed. It is debatable whether, in such a situation, the troops will be there to protect the flood of people coming across the Southern border, or whether they will be deployed to “snatch-and-grab” the leading voices of dissent against a treasonous action as TPP represents. I suspect a bit of both will happen, should it come to that…

The only way I see this being avoided, is the wholesale repudiation of the TPP.

Watch what happens in the next few months very carefully. If I’m right, things are going to get exciting very soon.

If You Can Control The Money, You Can Control An Empire

with 4 comments

THIS is what empires are built upon.

THIS is what empires are built upon.

Last night, I ran across this little gem, “Beware Putin’s Special War in 2015.” An interesting read, from a… certain… perspective. The author makes the point that we’ve backed Russia into a corner, and like a cornered animal, they may lash out, by making war. The premise is that the sanctions made by the USA, NATO and the EU are in response to Russia’s aggression.

WHAT IS UKRAINE TODAY?

The Ukraine government that currently exists is a bought-and-paid-for product. The price tag? $5 Billion, as plainly stated by Victoria Nuland in her intercepted cell-phone call. The events in Ukraine were spawned by American interference, buying a coup in another country on the border with Russia. But that’s no surprise, we (America) have used either money or lethal force to overthrow governments all over the world, for decades. So what makes Ukraine different than other countries? Not much, except their bordering Russia.

As Paul Craig Roberts has discussed at length, the USA now is a hegemonic empire, much like Great Britain was for a few hundred years. The British perfected the art of pitting enemies against each other, so that they could not join forces to challenge Britain. The USA is doing the same thing, except we’re more heavy-handed. We Americans lack the finesse that the British displayed, to put it bluntly. And the current empire faces a completely new problem that undermines their ability to create a unifying message to rally the common people: the internet. They must therefore act more brazen in their actions and also their propaganda, to simply overwhelm the truth with myriad lies which will promote the agenda.

But all empires rely on something very simple: money.

If you can control the money, you can control an empire.

Every country that has been invaded/overthrown/ revolted (think the “Arab Spring” and “Orange” revolutions, bought and paid for with US dollars) since 9/11, fell after they challenged the existing monetary order. That is, they wanted to buy and sell products in some currency or commodity OTHER than US dollars. Indeed, it could easily be argued that this trend has been on-going since the fall of the Soviet Union. If some minor country chose to buck the US dollar system, their government would quickly be overthrown, assassinated or in some other way disposed of or derailed. As a military veteran, it pains me to realize that everything I believed in was a lie; it was and always will be about money.

Those countries that use (or have ability to use) currencies or commodities that bypass dollars, are a threat to the empire. That means China, India and Russia are the enemies.

China can’t be directly challenged, for a variety of reasons, but the ascension of the Yuan to worlds’ reserve status can be delayed if Russia is sent to the woodshed.

Here, we need to insert a thumbnail historical sketch of what has been going on in Ukraine over the past few years.

In 2010, President Viktor Yanukovych was elected with strong support from the Russian-speaking regions of Crimea, Southern and Eastern Ukraine. He was against Ukraine membership into the EU, and chose to pursue stronger relations with Russia. But in November 2013, the Euromaidan revolution began, financed directly by American agencies and money, for a pro-EU government which would be more friendly to American interests. In February 2014 amid heavy protesting and riots, Yanukovych fled for Kharkiv, Russia, and the Ukrainian parliament voted to remove him from his post despite sufficient votes to succeed in accordance with their Constitution.

So Yanukovych leaves, and (as Victoria Nuland of the U.S. State Department apparently decided) “Yats,” or Arseniy Yatsenyuk, should be the next the new leader after Yanukovych’s removal. What makes Yats unique is that he was VERY much for EU membership, and extremely nationalistic in his views. He also views the other Eastern European states with some measure of hostility, preferring the Western associations of the EU. In short, Yats is a socialist that can be bought for cheap, and has no problem with being hostile to Russia.

No wonder the CIA wanted him to come to power.

CRIMEA

There was, however, a small problem, in the Russia has their Black Sea fleet stationed in Crimea, in accordance with the Kharkiv Pact. That is, Russia has a lease on the Crimean peninsula until 2042. It was originally signed in 1997, and there have been continuations of that lease since then. While Ukraine claims ownership of Crimea, the reality is that the Crimean peninsula is that of an independent republic. That is, they are and have always been a legally autonomous region.

Thus, when Ukraine decided to revolt against their own legally elected government and install a newly bought American puppet government, Crimea was under no legal duty or obligation to follow along with the new governments’ edicts.

As well, the majority of Crimean citizens identify themselves as Russian, and speak Russian, not Ukrainian.

Thus, the (up to) 25,000 Russian troops that were contractually stationed in Sevastopol prior to the overthrow of the government in Ukraine merely stayed where they were, and kept the peace. Crimean citizens held a referendum, and voted to join Russia. A week later, the Russian Duma cancelled the legal obligations of the lease with Crimea, since they had voted to join Russia.

The takeaway from this event was that Russia did not “annex” Crimea (an accusation that intentionally harkens back to Hitler’s annexation of the Sudetenland). The Crimean citizens did it of their own free will, having the legal right to do so. There are myriad other examples where similar votes have occurred; what makes this different is that it interfered with the American desire to strip Russia of a key military base in Sevastopol which is necessary for military defense.

UKRAINIAN “SEPARATISTS”

The next fly in the ointment, was the outgoing President enjoyed strong popularity from Ukrainian residents in the eastern side of Ukraine, mainly Russian-speaking citizens who identify themselves as Russian people, not Ukrainian. When the revolution occurred, they viewed the ouster of Yanukovych as illegal, and therefore did not support the new puppet, Yats. Their refusal to submit to the new government then led to their efforts to incorporate protests throughout the south and eastern portions of Ukraine. This eventually led to the Lugansk and Donetsk regions declaring themselves independent, to which Ukraine responded with military forces (called the Battle of Donbass). That battle is currently under a cease-fire, but is by no means resolved.

RUSSIAN “AGGRESSION”

From June to September of 2014, there were accusations of Russia sending in small numbers of tanks and troops to the disputed regions in Eastern Ukraine, but none of these instances were substantiated; claims that the tanks were Russian are irrelevant, since pretty much every piece of military hardware in the region originated in the Soviet Union/Russia.

The separatists have repeatedly requested military assistance from Russia, and have been rebuffed each time. While the Russian people have donated food, blankets and clothes, military troops have gone so far as to fight for the separatists while on leave. None of these actions have been done with the support of the Russian government.

6th ANNUAL BRICS SUMMIT

From July 15-17, 2014, Russian President Putin was in Fortaleza, Brazil, attending the 6th annual meeting of the BRICs. Why does this matter? Because they decided to start their own bank, to take on the International Monetary Fund, with starting funds of $100 billion, in CASH. This is important because this would provide an alternative to the obviously corrupt (and largely bankrupt) western banking system.

In other words, they just announced they’re going to perform the coup de grace to an already-dying dollar. Remember, when you control the money, you can control an empire. Conversely, if you kill the currency of an empire, you kill the empire itself. This therefore represents an existential threat to the continued hegemony of America. Something had to be done.

MH-17

Immediately following the conclusion of the BRICs summit, President Putin was flying back to Moscow. The Russian Presidential jet is white with red and blue stripes running the length of the plane. Malaysian Airlines paints their planes almost identically. A source who wanted to remain anonymous discussed this point:

“The contours of the aircrafts are similar, linear dimensions are also very similar, as for the coloring, at a quite remote distance they are almost identical.”

Source.

The route and timing of Putin’s return flight to Moscow, was very close to that of MH17. The anonymous source:

“I can say that Putin’s plane and the Malaysian Boeing intersected at the same point and the same echelon. That was close to Warsaw on 330-m echelon at the height of 10,100 meters. The presidential jet was there at 16:21 Moscow time and the Malaysian aircraft – 15:44 Moscow time.”

So the planes looked almost identical in paint schemes. The one difference- that the Russian plane had four engines, while MH17 had two- would be very difficult to see, since it was late at night.

266

The logical conclusion was that the downing of MH17 was an assassination attempt on Putin, but the job was botched. Had it succeeded, it could have been blamed on the separatists in the Donetsk region, thereby stripping any support to the group, and allowing American interests to prevail. As well, with Putin dead, the possibility of a banking system that could challenge the IMF would be dealt a serious set-back.

As it so happens, there were enough independent data points to confirm that MH17 was not shot down by a surface-to-air missile, but by an SU25 fighter jet. I would suggest going to the link, and examine the data points and photographic evidence for yourself. The photos, when examined closely, easily destroy the entire western narrative regarding the downing of MH17. The linked summary is… compelling.

CONCLUSION

The “aggression” of Russia with regard to Ukraine or Crimea is simply a well-concerted propaganda campaign, to demonize one of only two countries of sufficient strength and economic power to challenge American hegemony. As well, a justification needs to be created (like the Gulf of Tonkin incident) to rally the American people behind so that war can be started with the “enemy.”

After Georgian troops on the orders of President Saakashvili invaded Ossetia; Russia responded by sending in enough troops to overwhelm any opposition. In the case of Georgia, they only needed 20,000 troops (total between stationed and transported to the region), and crushed the Georgian army in only four days.

There’s nothing in Ukraine that Russia wants; no real resources they don’t already have plenty of, no extra real estate they need… Russia doesn’t want them or need them. And if Russia were so inclined to be aggressive towards Ukraine, they would most likely do the same thing they did in Georgia; send in overwhelming forces to crush Ukraine in a matter of hours or days. The reports of “secret” convoys or supplies being sent to the separatists in Ukraine is absurd; Russia could send in 50,000 or 100,000 troops, and there’d be nothing to stop them.

So the narrative being fed to Americans (and the Western world) is a pack of lies, designed to whip up support for a war against Russia. The sanctions to tame Russian “aggression,” by definition cannot work, since Russia is not the aggressor; America is.

The USA and all of its puppets in the EU lack the financial muscle to directly challenge the BRICs nations; they’re corrupt, they’re bankrupt and they’re dying. They’re losing their financial power (remember, they control the money, so they control the empire), and the desperation is setting in. Beyond crushing any financial challenges coming at them, they’ve only one option left to challenge threats to their empire: war.

RAMIFICATIONS

The sanctions cannot possibly isolate Russia, a self-sustaining economy, any more than they could succeed against Cuba, an island nation. Even worse, the sanctions have now driven Russia into the open arms of China, who do not have America’s interests at heart. The results are that the IMF will be challenged directly, as the new BRICs bank goes online Monday, December 29, 2014. This means the days of the IMF- and the dollar- are now numbered.

It’s only a matter of time before the dollar is dropped as the worlds’ reserve currency, which will cause a “reset” in the USA of dramatic proportions, as the price of all imported goods skyrockets. After the reserve status of the dollar is lost, all the funny-money printed and sent around the world will come back to the United States quickly, as everyone dumps the dollar for something more stable. This will result in severe inflation, and possibly a hyperinflationary economic collapse. Think “Great Depression,” but 100 times worse.

There is a general mood in America that something isn’t “right,” that disaster or “doom” is coming. This is reflected in the trend for Americans to become “preppers” or survivalists or whatever term you care to use. This trend is an indication of diminishing faith in government benevolence- or even competence- and is now being recognized by the mainstream media as a growing trend. People may not understand what is happening, but in their guts they feel it.

As Paul Craig Roberts recently noted in an essay, we are very much at the brink of either nuclear war or total economic collapse. As to the question of which one will occur (if not both), and which would be preferable, he said

“As hard as collapse would make it for people to survive, the chances for survival are higher than in the event of nuclear war.”

Have no illusions; we are already in the middle of a world war, but it’s a financial war right now. When one side or the other decides they no longer have a realistic chance of winning, then there is a real possibility of a shooting war starting. The western world has enjoyed the advantages of built-in infrastructure, a compliant media and long-running propaganda campaign, but the eastern world is quickly advancing, and using new tools that challenge those of the west. It looks like the eastern world will quickly overtake the west, with regard to economic power.

What happens next, remains to be seen. Will it be a shooting war, to cover and forever bury the corruption that has gone on so long in the west? Will an economic collapse plunge the west into a generations-long depression? After all, the west lives in the shadow of a mountain of debt so large and unpayable, the only other historical example of similar magnitude led to what we now refer to as the “Dark Ages” after the collapse of the Roman Empire.

I hope this last point brings home how badly we’ve been hollowed out, as a country. The damage that will be done either by war or economic collapse, I believe, will be biblical in magnitude. Faced with such prospects, those moneyed elites who hold the reins of power, will never willingly let go. They will sacrifice everything and everyone else to maintain that power, until they die.

Ebola: Who Benefits?

Obola+change+you+can+breathe+in+obola+change_e9d9d0_5327188

I’ve made no secret as to what I think will happen with an economic collapse.

The mathematics are indisputable; it is physically impossible to pay off the real national debt (the public debt standing at ~$17T, the off-book debts at $238T+).  Thus, a financial collapse that will make “The Great Depression” look a minor speed-bump is assured.

Even Alan Greenspan, the man directly responsible for the dot-com bust AND the real-estate bust of 2008, finally admitted this, and recommends we buy gold.  Of course, back in his early days (while a fan of “crazy” Ayn Rand) he stated that gold is the ultimate form of economic freedom.  The inverse, of course, is that fiat money is the most efficient form of slavery.  So all the crap that he did to “blow bubbles” in the economy, he knew beforehand would be an ultimate failure, and has just admitted that his efforts were complete failures. Let that sink in for a minute…  when the former Federal Reserve chairman admits his efforts were failures, and his previous writings make clear that he knew such efforts would actually destroy the dollar, then all the religious fervor assigned to “the Maestro” Greenspan, was faith in a false idol.

He was merely the latest flim-flam artist to sell America on its own destruction, via currency debasement. Ann Barnhardt accurately details the history, and our current results in terms of debt, man-years of work needed to pay off the debts, and so on.

I’ve been an economics geek for 25 years or so…  studied how money works, and how it does not work, long after I finished my undergrad degree (economics) and my MBA.   I can say from experience, that  NO school is going to tell you the entire financial system is a fraud,  NO school is going to tell you that the Federal Reserve is private entity, and that the dollar bills we use represent values of debt, rather than stores of value.  NO school will be permitted to tell you the full, unadulterated truth.

George Carlin was a crusty old curmudgeon of a guy, who more than made up in common-sense, what he lacked in the way of formal indoctrination education.

And here is what he said:

The real owners are the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians, they’re an irrelevancy. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the statehouses, the city halls. They’ve got the judges in their back pockets. And they own all the big media companies, so that they control just about all of the news and information you hear. They’ve got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying, ­ lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want; they want more for themselves and less for everybody else.” 

“But I’ll tell you what they don’t want.  They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fucking years ago.  “You know what they want? Obedient workers, ­ people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork but just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. And, now, they’re coming for your Social Security. They want your fucking retirement money. They want it back, so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all, sooner or later, because they own this fucking place. It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in the big club.

By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table has tilted folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Good honest hard-working people . . . white collar, blue collar it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard-working people continue, these are people of modest means . . . continue to elect these rich cocksuckers who don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t give a fuck about you . . . they don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t care about you at all . . . at all . . . at all, and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that’s being jammed up their assholes everyday, because the owners of this country know the truth. It’s called the American Dream cause you have to be asleep to believe it . . .”

The systemic corruption he describes is so blatant, those who deny it are either beneficiaries of that corruption or so damned stupid that they should be sterilized.

Really, it IS that bad.

But an interesting turn of events has happened; the corrupted economic system is collapsing on itself, and the public is waking up to that fact.

Ironically, it’s not the few remaining productive people in the workforce that are protesting.  The guy being robbed (Peter) is not protesting so much, as Paul is protesting that he wants more money, more opportunities, more of EVERYTHING that belongs to Peter.  The so-called Free Shit Army (FSA) is slowly realizing that prices are going up, but their proceeds from Peter aren’t matching…  some of the more intelligent people within the FSA are even going so far as to observe that the money being stolen from Peter isn’t helping them to get ahead.  It just feeds them at their current state.  Imagine a group of people becoming complacent and living off the largesse of government (after the money was stolen from Peter), rather than learn how to get off your fat asses and work to improve your lot!  The insolence of some people! The FSA has now been betrayed by Obama and friends, by executive actions to allow millions of illegals into the country, to steal the few jobs that the black community actually have.

But hey, as a politician, once you have the FSA eating out of your hand, with their vote as the debt to be repaid, then where else will the FSA turn to, when you stab the FSA members in the back?  Republicans???  Ahh, YEAH.  That’ll work.  Watch the election Kabuki theater next week, to see which whore the voters decide will be “true” to them…

NONE of it matters, though.  When the money stops flowing, all HELL will break loose.

For the “owners” of this country, the game is winding down, like the last few minutes at the end of a tough football game…  they’re watching the clock, there’s two minutes left in the 4th quarter, and if they can just make it, somehow, to the end…  but they’re 10 points down, their star QB is out with a twisted ankle, and they know there won’t be any miracles to turn things around.  The “owners” know that the entire western civilization is simply awash in bad paper, massive amounts of debt hanging over their heads, without the slightest hope of ever being repaid…

… It’s “game over,” the audience just hasn’t figured it out, yet.

The banksters are deep in trouble, as deep as it gets.

bankster

The lovely aspect of the internet, technology, is that we now KNOW who is responsible for the financial collapse.  When the man on the street drops his picket sign and picks up a pitchfork (or gun), the collective value of their lives will be less than zero; they’ll be more appreciated dead than alive.

This is the backdrop for the entrance of the force majeure, that makes the entire above situation moot: ebola.

You’ve read the news, you no doubt see what’s been happening: Obama and his friends have consistently screwed the pooch at every opportunity.  Instead, they’ve gone full PR mode, to make it seem as though it’s not an issue.  Hell, they’re intentionally importing people they KNOW are contaminated, sending US military troops to do make-work projects in places where they WILL be contaminated, and REFUSE to institute the most basic of quarantines.

It’s almost as though they want Ebola here…

The MSM, .gov agencies and their cronies at the CDC and WHO say (to us) that it’s really difficult to get. The reality is that the number of infected people doubles every three weeks. ~13,000 infected now (as announced by the World Health Organization on 10/25/2014).  There will be more than 100,000 by Christmas, and 56 million by the fourth of July.  By Thanksgiving next year, everyone will have it and will have either survived it, or be dead or dying.

With first-world care, mortality can be as “low” as 70%, but will be 90% after the medical system is overwhelmed and collapses.

Whether Obama and his shit-head cronies import this directly, or it lands in Central or South America first, really doesn’t matter at this point.  You see, short of sealing off the borders completely, and using deadly force against those who try to sneak in (or by some other means import the virus intentionally or not) it will come to the USA.  It doubles every three weeks, and NOTHING we can do to stop it, much less slow it down the slightest amount. ebola deaths And while it’s a terrible thing, if you’re one of the “owners” of this country, it makes a very efficient way to simply erase the debts (since the results of such a plague will collapse every economy in the world), hide their crimes…  and then  they can just slither away.

crooks laughing

Do I have proof that this has been done intentionally, to make the most egregious examples of theft disappear like a puff of smoke?  No, I don’t.  I’m a nobody, and if I did have such proof, I’d quickly be a dead nobody…  But if we assume Obama and all of his scumbag cronies are doing everything they can to bring Ebola into the USA, this would be a pretty good motive for HIS owners…

SHOCKER: African-Americans Complained After Obama Sold Them Out!

leave a comment »

Obama’s new constituency

The recent “crisis” of illegal immigration has been portrayed by the lame-stream media as some sort of natural phenomenon, like a storm that develops, and becomes a hurricane. Imagine my surprise [I’m shocked, I tell you! SHOCKED!] to learn from alternative news that this “crisis” was planned- literally- for years.

Since 2010, the Obama administration has been bankrolling the Baptist and Catholic churches. WHY, when he clearly has NO love for anything remotely resembling Christianity? From Liberty News:

Between Dec 2010 and Nov 2013, the Catholic Charities Diocese of Galveston received $15,549,078 in federal grants from Health & Human Services for “Unaccompanied Alien Children Project” with a program description of “Refugee and Entry Assistance.”

Last year, the Catholic Charities Diocese of Fort Worth received $350,000 from Department of Homeland Security for “citizenship and education training” with a program description of “citizenship and immigration services.”Between September 2010 and September 2013, the Catholic Charities of Dallas received $823,658 from the Department of Homeland Security for “Citizenship Education Training” for “refugee and entrant assistance.”

From Dec 2012 to January 2014, Baptist Child & Family Services received $62,111,126 in federal grants from Health & Human Services for “Unaccompanied Alien Children Program.”

Indeed, Obama told us he what his intentions were on October 25, 2010, when he said “I’m going to keep my promise on immigration reform.” Of course, everything with the collectivists is talked about in euphemisms: “social justice” is really “stealing from those that are working, to those that won’t work,” “pro-choice” really means “pro-abortion,” and “immigration reform” really means “open the borders, and let EVERYONE in.” [More on collectivist euphemisms here.]

So, true to form, Obama told his audience exactly what he would do- much like his “fundamentally transform America” speech- and now we know what he REALLY meant. After spending some $15.5million to train the churches how to handle a bunch of illegal alien children from 2010-2013, he stated almost exactly three years later stalled immigration reform would be a top priority once the fiscal crisis has been resolved.”

Translation: “We’re ready to pull the trigger on our little project.”

On June 9, 2014, the announcements went out from Guatemala’s large paper La Prensa Libre that DHS would not deport minors from countries that do not share a border with the U.S (this is a loophole in immigration law).

And so it began, the mass exodus of unaccompanied children over 1000 miles in the care of coyotes, human smugglers, who have victimized a lot of these kids in the most horrible of ways. They make it across the border, try to get picked up by border-patrol agents, and they’re basically home-free. Of course, people of a not-so-innocent attitude are also taking advantage of the situation; MS-13 gangsters and murderers, Islamic illegal aliens who forget their prayer-rugs, the sick and the diseased.

Now that the plan is in full swing, Obama’s answer to the “crisis” HE created, is to demand money…. to house the illegals. NOT to close the border, mind you, but to give these people money YOU paid in; house them, feed them, give them comfort, despite the fact that they endanger American citizens. Obama won’t “let this crisis go to waste,” never fear. He intends to use it to maximum advantage, however he can.

And it took two weeks for the prediction I made to my wife, to come true. On July 5 I told her, “when the black community figures out that he sold them down the river, there’ll be HELL to pay.”

On July 9, the National Review published an article titled Black Americans: The True Casualties of Amnesty. An interesting quote from that is when two black men confront the supporters of the illegal aliens at the Murrieta, California protests, and one of the black men says,

If somebody brought six children to your house and you ain’t got no job, are you gonna take them in?… What are you gonna do? Are you gonna try to go out there and take care of these children AND the children you got already that you can’t take care of?… What are we going to do for the people who are here who are starving already?… We got our OWN people that are starving and hungry…. Why would we add to the problem?!

July 11, the Breitbart article Black American from Gang-Besieged Baltimore: ‘Where Can I Get Asylum?’ came out.

And then- FINALLY, the pièce de résistance– the July 14 article Obama’s fiddling over illegal immigration hurts African-Americans. The youtube in the link, is where it becomes clear; black Chicago natives stating during a protest about the illegal alien invasion.

“He’s going to go down being one of the worst. Presidents. Ever!”

Of course he is…  well, maybe.  You see, the history books are written by the winners.  And right now, the winners are the backers of Obama, the NWO freaks, who are pushing Agenda 21/22, as summarized here.  While things like “corporate sustainability” sound pleasant if somewhat benign, it is indicative of the true nature, to read the following UN document:

Going back to the comment on the video, he’ll only go down as the worst POTUS ever, IF we survive him.  That is not for certain.

The linked document above, proves several things:

  1. UN Agendas 21 and 22 are for world-wide domination.  That is, they’re confirmation of the “New World Order” agenda that George H.W. Bush so happily introduced us to.
  2. The USA is the fly in the ointment of their agenda, because Americans have an estimated 500 million guns in the hands of private citizens.
  3. The agenda will not succeed until all of those firearms are confiscated.

So we know the elitists/banksters are after our weapons, with the goal to subjugate us.  It certainly explains the push for “gun control” (another collectivist euphemism for gun confiscation) by Obama.  And we know that the banksters own Obama, completely.  If the NWO agenda succeeds, he’ll go down as a fucking HERO…  at least for a while.  Like Lenin, Stalin and Mao, the truth will come out eventually, even if they “win” for now…    I hope.

I guess it really comes down to the question of, “how vicious will pissed-off Americans get, how much will they feel their historical roots to stomp the fucking guts out of these wannabe tyrants, when things get “exciting?”  We’ll see.

“Today, if you look at the time we were brought here as slaves 400 years ago, we got the same results today.”

Yep.  Black people were slaves.  Now, everyone is a slave…  Working people are wage-slaves, paying in blood to the banksters that have turned the entire nation into one big happy plantation.  The poor/unemployed/unemployable/desperate people are fed a few crumbs when voting-time comes around, then they’re shat upon until the next election cycle…  treated like animals, used for a purpose and then ignored until needed again.

Glad to see, that while this gentleman doesn’t understand why and how we got to this point, that at least he knows what the end results are.  Sadly, he doesn’t understand that we’re all in one big boat- namely, the Titanic.

Obama- and all his bankster buddies- are planning to be the ones in the life-boat.

“With the President setting aside all of these funds for immigrants and forsaken the African-American community and African-American families, I think that’s a disgrace.”

THIS comment is the one that matters.

Black communities (or “African-American” or whatever PC term they wish to refer to themselves as) now find themselves in the same boat as the rest of American citizens; stabbed in the back.  This scum-bag, Soetero or Obama or whatever his real name is, is not working in the best interests of the country or its citizens.  He is actively trying to crash the country, politically, economically and militarily.  No constituency is safe from his treachery, no American is safe from his treason.   Indeed, I challenge anyone to name one thing- just one thing- that he has done to improve the lot of Americans overall. It’s like the inverse Midas touch: everything he touches turns to shit.

Obama is forsaken and betrayed the ENTIRE United States of America.

In the past, I would have been labled a “racist” for making such observations, though the empirical evidence is undeniable.

We- referring to those of us who have been aware and awake for some time now- have known that Obama is no more a “leader” than his predecessor, or his predecessor.  We could go back to Reagan [and it could be argued, back to JFK] to find an honorable, true American leader who has sat in the Oval Office.  It was clear that Obama would be no different.  The faces- and political parties in charge of the government- change…  But the agenda is one of steadily increasing control, graft and corruption.

Welcome to reality.

The Low-Tech Solution to the High-Tech Police State: Pirate Radio

with 6 comments

small pirate studio

There’s an old joke from the Soviet Union: “you can say anything you want- once!” The underlying meaning, of course, is that after you said it, you would never be heard from again. That is the implicit threat that we face every day, so it seems we’re constantly walking on eggshells. Certain words were not allowed to be said, and certain facts are not allowed to be expressed.

You have an employee who’s constantly sandbagging and incompetent, but you’re not allowed to discipline him or fire him, because he’s a “minority,” and you don’t want to get slapped with a discrimination lawsuit. So instead you tolerate his sub-par performance, and hope he’ll go somewhere else on his own volition.

subpar-obama-01

But of course incompetent, sand-bagging people rarely move on; they are like fat parasites, in that once they find a nice host they never go away. You’re not allowed to talk about the crime statistics by ethnic groups, illegitimate children by ethnic groups, or anything else that might be construed as race-based observations. You’re not allowed to talk about crime rates by political groups or political affiliation. We’re not allowed to expose racist actions by protected ethnic groups against unprotected ethnic groups or demographics (white males). We’re not allowed to speak out against socially abnormal agendas like gay marriage or gays adopting straight children, nor against pedophiles working in our schools and universities.

No, we’re never allowed to say what we really want to say. You go to “alternative” news sites, blogs, to get alternative, unvarnished truth that the mainstream media won’t dare to mention… But do you get the whole, unvarnished truth?   Even at such sites as this one, there is still a level of… caginess… regarding what is said. Even here, a supposedly “anonymous” blog, I must couch my words very carefully, lest I get a visit from the secret service or the FBI for saying what I really think.

The reality is that the laws on the books are designed to suppress free speech. Anything which might be construed as challenging the gov’t automatically gets you deemed as a terrorist.

If you really want to push the envelope and speak of revolution, overthrowing the government or in any way holding the corrupt government to account, you will quickly have the secret service and/or the FBI coming down on you like a ton of bricks.

Indeed, that is the entire point of the NSA surveillance program! “Intimidation” is the name; keeping you afraid of speaking out is the game.  And since the vast majority of us do our communications not through face-to-face conversations, but through electronic means, that huge net is always ready to scoop us up the moment that we start to question, plan or commence organized resistance to tyranny.  Efforts to obtain some semblance of privacy from the NSA automatically makes you a target for the tyrants.

For people to be aware of what is happening, those who are awake and aware of the situation must be able to talk plainly. People need to KNOW the truth about what their government is really doing, without finding out only when they’ve been sold down the river by “their guy.” The government is doing everything they possibly can, to bury the truth; prosecuting whistleblowers, lying, cover-ups, killing journalists critical of them… But we MUST expose them. If nothing else, the public need to know who to stick with the pitchforks (or plug with firearms) when things get “exciting,” and it is absolutely ESSENTIAL bypass mainstream media. Such efforts need to address not only national criminal activity (such as by the den of thieves and whores in D.C., but also the local ones, in your own back yard.

What does it mean, to expose them?

That means calling out corrupt politicians on their crimes. It needs exposing the names of crooked and murdering cops in your local jurisdiction, corrupt judges that ignore the constitution or facilitate child-kidnapping operations (CPS, anyone?), corrupt media who either lie or cover up the truth, corrupt school officials who protect pedophile predators on their staff, and so on… Do it in a public venue that everyone can hear.

Forget about going to your town hall or city council meetings, because they’re controlled by the same corrupted government whores and thieves you want to expose.

Forget about your local media because it is too heavily monitored and therefore too afraid to speak plainly.

Forget about the Internet; most people are busy living their lives, and while they may have time to listen to the radio or have a TV playing in the background, they won’t find you. If they DO find you for local truth, they’ll also know who you are, and you are therefore exposed to retribution from the same criminals that you’re trying to expose.

You need something that public can listen to without inviting additional risk to themselves, for listening to you.

You need to be able to say what needs said without interference by the corrupt establishment, or corrupted media corporations. And your audience needs to be able to receive the information, without risk of retribution from that same corrupt establishment.

Your town, needs a REAL “town crier.”

What is the solution?

A link I stumbled across last week, gave me the answer; FM radio.

Sometimes the response to high technology is low technology.

If you do some research you’ll find out the setting up an FM station through legal channels is extremely expensive, heavily regulated, and quite arbitrary in rules and actual practice. In other words you have to grease a lot of palm’s to get anything done, and then they can still shut you down at anytime they want. What other options are available?

The answer is “pirate radio.” An effective pirate radio station appears relatively easy to setup, and can be effectively done as little as a few hundred dollars, with a transmission radius of a few miles. For a few thousand dollars, you can put one together that will have the transmission radius of 10-15 miles, depending on things like transmitter power, antenna length, height above the ground, and so on.

Are there problems with this idea? Of course. For starters the FCC does not like pirate radio stations; they consider it a nuisance, when they would rather be spending their time on other things. If you have a transmission station, eventually they will find you and demand that you shut down the station. Depending on how many agents they have in your particular jurisdiction, this may take them several months. They have no legal authority to obtain a search warrant; only the ability to issue a cease-and-desist order. Finding a radio transmitter is not a particularly difficult task; radio vans using direction-finding equipment can pinpoint your location in short order, a matter of minutes. But it is for a stationary transmitter. If you transmitter happens to be mobile, DF equipment cannot pinpoint your location.

And here’s where it gets interesting; a mobile transmitter can be installed inside of any car, with a transmission radius of 2-3 miles, with gear that would fit into a medium-sized gym-bag.  A large transmitter   with sufficient power to be able to transmit over a 20 mile radius can fit into an SUV, van or motor home, allowing for mobile operation.  If you do it while applying sufficient operational and personal security protocols, you can say any damn thing you want and they can’t stop you.

Building a pirate radio is surprisingly simple, rather cheap and doesn’t require a lot of technical knowledge. A person who has some basic electrical understanding, the ability to follow instructions and has a modicum of manual dexterity can build a transmitter very easily. If you don’t even want to take that on, you can buy it from transmitters literally off of Ebay, or Free Radio Berkeley. The ones from Berkeley have excellent prices for fully assembled units. There are a variety of websites which go into detail how to put together a small station, there are plenty of videos on youtube, and even local groups that can help.

In my examination, what are the limitations of a mobile system?

  1. Lower power FM transmitters usually operate on 12 or 24 volts. The cutoff before 12-volt systems are too small, seems to be at ~50 watts of transmission power, which can equate to a transmission radius of ~5 miles on flat ground up to ~13 miles if you’re 50 feet above the surrounding terrain (see here for more details on how to calculate range). When I say the 12-volt DC system is “too small,” it’s merely that larger transmitters use higher voltages, making direct power feed from your cigarette lighter problematic due to wire sizes inside the transmitter (higher voltages allow smaller wire for the same overall power consumption).
  2. Antenna location: while a very effective antenna can be made to look like a high-quality CB antenna, they are NOT the same. Only a technically savvy person will know the difference, so you could mount one on a rig (with a decent CB radio on the dash) to provide plausible deniability if you’re stopped. Avoiding probable cause is important, here. The bigger problem, as the range chart (here) shows, is that height is the key to good range. FM operates by line-of-sight. Over the horizon transmissions just don’t work. So the higher you are, the further you can transmit. The tradeoff is transmitter power versus height. It takes a $1500 transmitter (at the radio Berkeley store) and 50’ of above-ground altitude, to do what a $450 transmitter can do if on a mountain 1000’ above the surrounding terrain (ceteris paribus).  Clearly, there are trade-offs between transmitter power, height and cost. You’ll have to judge for yourself what is the best compromise.
  3. A higher power transmitter (>50 watts) will require 120VAC or 220VAC power- like you have in your house. This will require a dedicated static inverter (full sine wave operation to avoid radio interference, or RFI) wired into your rig, fed from a bank of batteries and charged from a dedicated charging system. Again, doable, but not particularly easy. Costs for a static inverter from Amazon or EBay run around $200-300 for an oversized unit that will handle a lot of abuse, for a long time.
  4. Having a mobile system allows one to stay in a specific location for a short period of time- maybe a few hours, or so… If you’re transmission are going to garner the attention of .gov thugs, then plan on shorter stops, or preparing transmissions on your computer, saving to a memory stick/SD card and transmitting while you’re driving (as a prerecorded show).
  5. Pirate radio stations tend to gather a following of loyal listeners, because they’re on 24×7. This is also what makes them easy for the Feds to find; you’re like a big neon sign that never goes off. If your broadcasts will be gathering unhealthy attention from .gov people, the choices are to go “hit-and-run,” transmitting for short periods of time hoping that someone will hear you, or having a specific time that you’re on, consistently, so that your (hopefully growing listenership) will tune you in at the appropriate time. The former approach is inconsistent; the latter allows the .gov people to know when to look for you using DF trucks- which is why we’re talking about mobile applications, right?

Anyway, I hope this has given you something to think about. I find it deliciously ironic, that this high-tech spy grid the NSA uses, now makes pirate radio- around for nearly 100 years- the logical solution to bypass their surveillance.

Here are some quick links, that might help you as you explore this opportunity. The forums are obviously set up by younger people, but the technical information is solid and useful, even for someone who doesn’t have a background in this area. Also are a few links for some equipment, and free software to help produce a quality radio show.

Finally, please allow me to indulge myself, by posting a quote which really gets to the heart of why we should look at pirate radio:

[W]hile the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn’t there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who’s to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you’re looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.” —V for Vendetta

Also, please do a bit of research on the laws and power the FCC has. I think you’ll be surprised at how poorly funded they are, and how little they have in the way of true power… They are the Barney Fife’s of law enforcement, today.

[Edit]  Ham-radio operators typically despise those who don’t join “the club,” by getting a government licence and then talk on equipment that the general public knows nothing about (much less owns and operates).  If your comment is along the lines of “that’s silly, just join out ‘club’ so you can debate politics with like-minded people,” you’ve not only missed the boat, you fell off the friggin’ DOCK.   The idea is to disseminate information to the public in such a way that they incur no risks by listening, using gear they already have (like the radio in their car or house).  Trying to BS me on technical issues, will also get your comments trashed tout d’suite.

Bundy, Bunkerville, Racism and Collectivist Desperation

with 18 comments

I’ve been watching the news with regard to Cliven Bundy and the armed stand-off with BLM snipers/trigger-pullers/thugs, since the video of BLM hired thugs tasering, assaulting and using attack-dogs on unarmed, nonthreatening citizens first went public.

Like everyone else who still has some semblance of a moral core, I was disgusted by what I saw.  I can’t say shocked, though… no, not shocked…  After all, .gov thugs beat people, shoot them, kill them, frame them for false crimes and otherwise abuse normal citizens on with a regularity that sickens me to my core.  So I was amazed at the response from armed militias, who mobilized quickly and were ready to do a Little Bighorn on the BLM thugs.  I confess, part of me was hoping the militias would give these thugs a bloody nose…  but I freely admit the ending of this first confrontation was FAR better; it exposed the cowardice of hired thugs, exposed the REAL weakness of the Feds to organized resistance, and demonstrated that the all-powerful feds are not-quite-so-powerful as they believe themselves to be.

I’ve understood that from a logical (and numerical) perspective.  But it’s still a wonderful thing to see it demonstrated so publicly and *completely.*

Since this rout of the Feds, they’ve been desperate to come up with something, ANYTHING, to minimize the damage (and take attention away from dingy-harry-reid, biggest crook in Nevada who’s busily selling us all out to the CHINESE).

Low and behold, yesterday, 4/23/14, Cliven Bundy gives them exactly what they want; enough video to edit and twist around so that they can make him look like a RAAAAACIST.  So here’s the full video, UNEDITED:

His words are- in the present atmosphere of “political correctness”- about as unacceptable as you can be.  Of course, “PC” is all about stifling the ability of people to speak plainly.  Cliven Bundy speaks with the plain-spoken style of older folks that I heard growing up…  I’ve heard it from Bill Cosby, I’ve heard it from my grandparents, everywhere when I was a kid.

And his point is conveyed with a crystalline clarity: government has made life WORSE for blacks AND Mexicans with the handouts.  All the money spent in the “war on poverty” has turned the minorities from one kind of slave…  into another.

But he goes on to observe that the illegal aliens that come here have BETTER families than white people…

It makes sense; whites are enslaved, too.  Oh, while blacks are enslaved to the entitlements, whites are wage-slaves, still chasing that “American Dream,” that blew up in our faces during the 2008 housing bust, $700B bailout, QE1, QE2, QE… ad infinitum (until the dollar more closely resembles Zimbabwe dollars in value).  Whites are slaves to the banksters.  Blacks are slaves to the collectivists who view them as “useful idiots” to be trotted out for every election cycle, and then shat upon until the next election cycle…

Illegal-alien Mexicans are not really allowed to be full-fledged members of the entitlement class (though “old yellow-stain” John Boehner is busily pushing to change that), and they’re  not allowed to be full-fledged members of the wage-slave class, so they have their own, isolated from the disgusting slavery cycles that so much of America now loves…  So they (illegal-aliens) are the only class of people NOT chained down firmly by the government.  Ironic, don’tcha’ think?

Anyway, going back to the video of Cliven Bundy, our lovely boot-licking Media Matters edited the video to the following:

Context completely changed…  to make him look like a silly old bigot.

As I pointed out on several forums, suppose you accept the MSM position that Cliven Bundy IS a bigot.  Suppose he IS a “racist,” whatever the Hell THAT really means….  my question is, “SO WHAT?”

Does that mean it’s now alright for the government to gun him down like Lon Horiuchi did to Vikki Weaver at Ruby Ridge?  Does that mean he suddenly has LESS rights, and DESERVES to have his grazing rights- which his family has held for over a century- forfeit?  Does that make him LESS WORTHY AS A HUMAN BEING?

Unsurprisingly, Glenn Beck happily performed fellatio on .gov regarding Bundy, before this video came out.  Afterwards, Beck didn’t just throw Bundy under a bus, he tried to stick a Bowie knife in his back and then PUSH Bundy under the bus.  Not surprising, since Beck did the exact same maneuver on Ron Paul before the 2008 election- professing to believe in Ron Paul, and then announcing nationally that Ron Paul was a “loon” for predicting….  exactly what’s happening RIGHT NOW.

Sean Hannity next lined up, to throw Bundy under the bus.  Again, not surprising, since Hannity is no more sincere than anyone over at MSNBC/CNN/CBS/ABC.  In other words, Hannity is no more interested in telling the FULL TRUTH than Beck, or Rachel Madcow or Jay Carney (the white-house spokes-hole, whose job it is to LIE EVERY DAY).

Other news media have already distanced themselves from the whole Bunkerville, NV, situation, because “Media Matters” and NYT got together, manipulated a video tape and passed it off as though it were the entirety of what was said.

The goal was to discredit Cliven Bundy and ANYONE who dared to stand against .gov.  Don’t agree with the laws, the corrupt judges, the corruption .gov agencies and our lying piece-of-shit president?  YOU ARE RAAAAAACIST!!!!

Sadly, Bundy gave them just enough ammunition to get what they wanted, and so they used it.  And the MSM from “our side” is too chicken-shit, too COWARDLY, to call the NYT and Media Matters to account for their deception.  Now the waters will be a whole lot less clear, the moral high-ground not quite so high…  and allow the government a chance to recoup some of their credibility, that they’ve so badly squandered on the Bundy stand-off.

Bundy- as an old-timer and farmer, spoke like old-timers often do; bluntly.  Be the full video demonstrates that he is NOT a racist or bigot; in fact, he was expressing support for the rights of the common man- of all colors- over the demands of the government.  I can think of nothing LESS “racist” than this…  His only mistake- if one can even call it that- is that he didn’t used the “proper” terminology that the PC-crowd now not only expects, but DEMANDS.  Bundy cannot call an “African-American” person  any other terms other than “african-american.”  He used the term “negro,” so he MUST be a racist and a bigot.

Of course, “african-american” people can call white people cracka, whitey, anglo, albino, aryan, Casper, caulkie, confederate, conky, cornfed, crisco, Devil, fish-belly, flour-bag, ghost, hick, hill-billy, honky, howdy, pale-face, red-neck, saltine, shit-kicker, WASP, white-devil, white trash….

You see….  only WHITE people can be racist, and it is demonstrated whenever we use a term other than “african-american.”  Does that sound completely stupid to you???

THIS demonstrates how truly desperate the Feds are…  to demonize Cliven Bundy, his supporters, and anyone else who would DARE to question their “AUTHORI-TAH!”

I have only one question for you:  will you allow yourself to be tricked by such obvious attempts at deception?
