And Whether Pigs Have Wings, part three:
"The time has come," the Walrus said,
The Walrus and The Carpenter - Lewis Carroll (from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872)
In Part 1, Something Wicked This Way Comes, we discussed the "Dumbing Down of America" and I tried to provide examples of the effectiveness of the campaign. Most do not realize that they fall directly in the cross hairs "of those who would be kings". As I pointed out in a previous essay, Paradise Lost:
"We are not being shepherded by altruistic wise men, but, rather, herded by megalomaniacal desperadoes."
In Part 2, Those Who Would be Kings, we discussed the evolution of corruption in the body politic in America, and how it has metastasized to the point of collapse.
(Editor's Note: When I originally published this missive, it was as it is now. The day after I posted it, I received an email from a reader in Australia. He suggested that the piece could use some editing and had attached a revised edition which I posted. I have since received several emails from readers who had recommended the piece to friends. Their friends' response was that "It didn't sound like JSB". I decided, while contemplating Memorial Day, that what I had intended to present was a more dire message. These are, after all. dire times. - JSB)
In this installment, I will attempt to summarize what I believe is going to happen in the next twelve months, today being the 24th of May, 2012. Prophesy is tricky business. What I am about to lay out is even more tenuous than usual, in that, if I am right, and all hell does break loose, the best that can happen (for me) is the ability to say "I told you so" which will do neither me, nor you any good. The worst that can happen (for me) is that I fall victim to the Darkside along with many of my compatriots, as retribution for championing the truth and abetting their opposition. The only rational motive that I could have for making such a prophesy, is the hope that, given the consideration that some of these events may take place, some of you might be better prepared.
Our current system is broken
It is broken beyond repair. I had once thought that through my energies, and those of many others, who saw the writing on the wall, that I/we could help wake up the general population to the stark reality of the cancer of tyranny, and that, united in the cause to fight tyranny, we could do something about it. This is a tyranny that has infected every aspect of our lives, It threatens our very survival. Unfortunately, we have failed to wake up a sufficient number of those who care enough to act. There are, perhaps, only 10,000,000 citizens in this county that care enough to be willing to see what's going on. That 10,000,000 is out of a population of 330,000,000. We don't seem to be getting very much help from the bulk of the populace. Consequently, we are all going down. Their unpreparedness will simply exacerbate the situation. We must now "be the ants" and prepare to witness the end of the current paradigm and be ready for whatever is to replace it. They will continue to "be the grasshopper" and worship at the altar of American Idol and Jersey Shores.
Between now and November, I believe that the world's central banks will pull out all stops in order to try and maintain some semblance of normalcy up to the elections. Remember that the central banks of the world are simply front men and tools for their behind the scenes owners, who represent the 1% of the 1%. These self-absorbed putzes want to rule the world. Through their collective greed, they have indentured, not only the United States, but also most of the European Union to the point that the debt service has become untenable, and the default on that debt is inescapable and imminent. They have, essentially, greeded themselves out of business. On the surface, one might think, so what? Iceland has repudiated most of the debt that was criminally placed on its population, and Iceland seem to be doing fine. The debt of Iceland, compared to the debt, liabilities, entitlements and overhead of the U.S. Government, is simply a drop in the ocean. That, coupled with the crippling and catastrophic debt of Spain, Italy, Portugal, Ireland, France and Greece, to the same elitists, provides for a Western European/American economic meltdown. Please remember that the money loaned, that which incites the debt service, was counterfeit. No sweat or blood went into its creation. The banksters did nothing to earn it before they "lent it out". The only sweat and blood in these transactions is a result of the various governments, in collusion with the banks, that will insist that the debt service be provided by the taxpayer, and, if necessary, at gunpoint. The repudiation of all this debt is, perhaps, the only, yet best answer. That is highly unlikely, however, since the slime balls that are running the show are the lenders.
The austerity measures that you hear of in Greece and Spain are the people’s retirement pensions being forfeit in order to pay the interest on the debt to the thieves that call themselves bankers. Consider, money in accounts that you worked your entire life for, in order to someday retire, up in smoke. That's why they are rioting. It's not just higher taxes (although that's part of it). That's why Americans will riot, when their pensions and retirement accounts are forfeit to the same bankers (see The New York Post article; Feds Eye Retirement-Fund To Cut $16 Trillion-Plus Deficit). The reason they have not enjoined our retirement accounts yet is Obama's obsession with getting re-elected. The way they are putting this meltdown off, so far, is the continual creation of money, by the Federal Reserve, that is then funneled to the bankers, to lend to the debtors so that they can continue to service their various sovereign debts. Anyone with half a brain can see how futile this approach to the problem is. These guys may be amoral pieces of skunk poop, devoid of any morality or ethical boundary, but they aren't brainless. They know the end is nigh. But you have to give them credit. Not one in fifty Americans have the slightest clue of what's about to happen.
The Government is Broke
The American Government is financially insolvent and can no longer make good on its social safety net liabilities. Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and even governmental pensions will have to be eliminated. I recently posted a video that explains this in graphic detail. Congress can't balance to budget, even if they shut down the government and the military! What's going to happen, one day soon, is that the checks will simply stop. This is about to become very big news, although you probably won't hear it from the presstitutes that make up the main stream media. The current regime is desperate to maintain power. They have to make it through the elections, after which all hell is going to break loose. They are (and have been) very aware of what will happen.
The collusion between government and the big banks has bastardized capitalism to the point that it is no longer "workable". Capitalism has always provided the economic cornerstone that allowed the U.S. to enjoy the highest standard of living in the world. This high standard was initially achieved in the latter part of the 19th century in spite of Lincoln. A free market no longer exists anywhere in the world. I'm constantly confronted with technical analysis charts. How can anyone expect to technically analyze a rigged market. These markets are not being driven by the normal influence of fear and greed, but rather the criminal influence of infinite amounts of counterfeit money (Federal Reserve Notes).The markets are manipulated and rigged, and the wealth of America is being transferred from the middle class (those of us who work for a living) to both the rich and the poor. As a result of FDR's influence, the poor must be born and bred to vote for the criminal politicians (paradigm shift number two. Lincoln's catastrophic and unconstitutionally dictatorial takeover was number one).The intentional creation and support of the poor is expensive, don't you know. The instigation of the welfare state changed America forever. Instead of spending their own money to buy votes, the politicians could spend tax payer money to get elected. (How many welfare recipients voted for Obama? I would think, maybe... all of them?).
Fast forward from FDR to the Bush/Cheney era. George W. Bush was not the sharpest tool in the shed, but he was audacious. As a result, he and Darth Cheney successfully pulled off the most heinous plot the world has ever seen. The success of their ploy was entirely dependant on the collective cluelessness of an entire country. The banksters sat up and realized that, "Hell. If they can get away with that, then we, with the help of corrupt politicians, can get away with anything". Enter Henry Paulson...
In the last eleven years (since 911) the politicians and banksters have acted on this through the process of legalizing all the former crimes that would have heretofore gotten them arrested. It turned out to be simple. You have a criminal cartel called the Federal Reserve that invents money out of thin air and provides it to the banksters at no interest. The banksters then, through slime ball lobbyists, bribe corrupt politicians (law enactors) to change the laws and make what had been formally illegal, legal. Now the banksters can act with impunity. Since their only motive is greed, they will steal as much as they can for as long as they can, even if it destroys the economy, and turns the country into a banana republic. What do they care. When you have hundreds of millions of dollars, and gold, and land, and utility companies, and drug distribution rings, along with big pharma and corporate agriculture, you are pretty well set, no matter what happens. When you consider that our "justice system" consists of a group of law enactors (the senators and congressmen) law enforcers (police, both state and federal) various "high courts" to interpret these "laws", and a penal system to dole out punishment. All four interactive groups have succumbed to the siren song of payoffs. Everybody's corrupt and working for the banksters.
So, when the U.S. wakes up to the reality of the situation, probably at the onset of the austerity measures that will be imposed here (just like in Greece) so that the interest on the criminal loans that were made by the criminal Fed and the criminal banksters can by extracted from the people, a lot of folks will probably, finally, get pissed. When they do, not one of the sheeple will have a clue as to what happened, who was to blame or how to fix it. The criminal law enactors will continue to pass draconian laws to protect themselves from the people (isn't that what the second amendment is all about?). Local police forces, all over the country, have already been indentured to the DHS after having been equipped with tanks, sound cannons, high tech weaponry and other riot control gear. They will, happily, assume their duties in riot control and the protection of the banksters. The right to bear "high tech weaponry" would have been included in the Second Amendment had the Founders exercised a little more forethought. Law enforcement has, increasingly, become complicit in enforcing ridiculous laws, most often unconstitutional. Their individual oaths to uphold the Constitution have been surmounted by a growing ignorance of what the U.S. Constitution is all about. They seem to be more willing to mindlessly follow the direction of their equally Constitution illiterate superiors. This situation has become rampant on all levels of law enforcement, both state and federal. J.P. Morgan Chase recently gave the New York City police force $4,600,000 for computer equipment to insure that, when it came right down to it, the police would understand and remember on which side their bread was buttered, and how to deal with the Occupy Wall Street protesters.
There is nothing "normal" going on, although some cloud headed cynics might suggest it's "business as usual". I fear that the immediate future will continue to become increasingly abnormal. It is becoming, in my opinion, a race to the bottom by all Central Banksters. More quantitative easing (QE3) by the Federal Reserve will exponentially accelerate the scourge of inflation. I would not be surprised if the November elections were put on "hold" due to some "national emergency" or "Bankers Holiday" at which point all of your funds will be frozen (save those you maintain in your personal possession). I foresee social unrest and even sporadic insurrection in America. This will, as mentioned above, lead to ever more self protecting draconian measures to be imposed by the "Law Enactors".
The biggest problems I see, however, are not those contrived by the various bastions of mitigated elitist skunk poop, but those that might arise as an unintended consequence of the tumult. The zionist bozos (less than 2% of the Israeli population and far less than 1% of the rest of the world's population) that are successfully steering the American Government toward participation in an assault of Iran, might find that the resulting calamity caused by the interruption of middle eastern oil supplies could drive fuel prices too high, too fast, which could easily result in supply chain breakdowns (read in; empty shelves at grocery stores). Such an event could easily trigger panic, and chaos will then soon follow. For those familiar with chaos theory, suffice to say, you are aware that the "Powers That Be" are not in possession of the mental capacity to deal with it. When nobody's running the show, things will get very interesting very fast.
And when the Bough Breaks
I have long since lost any confidence in the current state of American politics, politicians, law enactors, law enforcers, judges and courts, and an out-of-control penal system. Until all of these factions of the jurisprudence system are cleaned up, the criminal perps brought to task, and the operation of each is returned to the Constitution mandates that they have all sworn to obey and uphold, there is no longer a United State of America. And there is certainly no hope. Hopelessness will breed insurrection quicker than anything else. That's why they have been preparing for the irate citizens' reaction for a decade. There is, at least, one FEMA detention camp in every state. Most have two. Some have three or more.
Consider these other recent efforts to keep you safe:
Sound like a bit of overkill to keep citizens safe against a 1 in 20,000,000 risk? Kind of leaves me wondering what the government has in mind.
So, what's going to happen? People, the world over are beginning to push back. They, mostly, have never had it as good as Americans have, nor have they been as thoroughly brainwashed. Europeans are much closer to their collective "breaking point" and, will snap sooner. When I say sooner, I mean, like, next week or next month. The contagion of their reaction will spread around the world. As the banksters continue to bribe the local politicians to squeeze their constituents for more taxes to pay the interest on the fraudulent loans, more and more will wake up to the scam and balk.
In order to keep the dollar from tanking the Federal Reserve must raise interest rates (and I mean double digits) but if they do, it will crush the economy. They won't raise rates, so the dollar is toast. The loss in value of the dollar is simply a result of the ravages of inflation, that we have been talking about, ad nauseum, for the last ten years. When Joe Sixpack can't buy his sedative six pack on Friday, he, too, will crack and react.
Meanwhile, back in New York, the banksters’ insolvency will become apparent, and they will finally start to go belly up, one after another, which will result in their depositors' funds disappearing, like the $2,000,000,000 from M.F. Global. A lot more people will react.
Finally the treasury bond market will collapse, and everyone who holds treasury paper will react. This is a lot of reaction! The government thinks that they are ready to deal with the crisis, but they are, in general, the morons that caused the crisis in the first place. The insane thing is that all central banks, the world over, will accelerate the devaluation of their currencies in a "race to the bottom. This will continue to put pressure on everyone. Governments, that are already insolvent, will go "belly up". No checks. No welfare. No pensions. No food stamps. What do you think will happen then?
If you are a long term reader of the Silver Bear Cafe, you are prepared. Consequently there are millions of folks that, to this day, remain clueless. They are about to become desperados. Desperation breeds contempt. Contempt breeds insurrection. Insurrection breeds chaos. What chaos breeds is, basically, unknown.
A Grain of Salt
Those of you that are familiar with my missives will know that, while I have been mostly correct in my past prognostications, I have frequently been in error concerning the time frame of the events. In 2004 I predicted a series of breakdowns that I thought would occur by 2008. Several of those events didn't happen until last year. Others haven't happened yet but are just about to. The Federal Reserve and its owners (the Darkside) are at the root of all this evil. Their ability to create money out of thin air is an incredibly powerful, albeit dishonest and immoral tool. Their only option is to speed up the printing presses to insure that everyone keeps getting their checks until they can no longer afford to pay someone to deliver the mail. Ron Paul also remains a wild card. If, by the grace of God, he is enabled to instigate some of his programs, we may still avert disaster, but the odds of that are slim. It should also be noted that I am not talking about the end of the world, just the end of the world as we know it. Out of the ashes, the Phoenix will rise again.
It's not what you don't know that will screw you up, it's what you are absolutely sure of that is absolutely wrong. The spin you hear from the mainstream media is intended to mislead you. Open your eyes and face the future. If you leave your head in the sand and ignore it, you are only leaving your butt exposed for the world to kick. This all may sound like gloom and doom, but when you get a handle on what is going to happen, you will have a future filled with opportunity. Fortune favors the Informed.
