SitRep – 6/27/2017

It has come to the point again when I must comment on the situation in America. As you can tell, I see trouble, nothing but trouble ahead.

Some folks are blind, in denial of what is happening. Many are well-intentioned but they are seeing the situation through rose-colored glasses.

If ever there was a time for clarity of thought, clearness of mind, and dropping bias…now is that time.

In this SitRep I am covering –
  • Economy
    • States
    • Pensions
  • Retail
  • Supreme Court
  • Trump Agenda
  • Violence
    • Political
    • Cop
  • Coup

And of course a summary.

Remember, these SitReps are not meant to be an alarm. I am not trying to scare anyone. I am not trying to get you to do anything other than prepare as you are currently doing. I don’t want you to panic. I simply want you to be aware of my opinion of what is happening.

Economy, States –

I was exactly right about Puerto Rico’s financial troubles when I wrote about them months ago. They are de-facto bankrupt. And to add insult to injury, last month they voted (non-binding) to seek statehood in the United States. Don’t think it is nice, warm and fuzzy “they are patriotic and want to be Americans” move. They only want to be a state so the US federal government has to rescue them financially. Watch for far more financial problems for Puerto Rico…and the US government formulating a plan to bail them out. Yes, of course…at taxpayer expense.

I was exactly right about Illinois and their financial problems. A long time ago I talked about their financial problems as a state. It’s here, they are in deep trouble. And they are taking all the wrong steps to fix their situation. Rather than make their state more fiscally conservative and take steps to encourage economic growth and limit spending…they are doing everything the exact opposite. Their radical leftist state government is trying to tax its way out of their mess. It is impossible. And yes, as I said quite a while ago…their public employee’s pension plan is the primary weight sinking the state.

More states will follow since more states are creating their own demise. California is probably the next to go. Washington state may not too far behind. Both are radical leftists states with a large percentage of public employee pension funds that are in trouble. And, to top it off, their outrageous minimum wage laws are losing them huge numbers of jobs. All you have to do is look at the significant move that businesses, fast-food especially, are moving to unmanned kiosks.

Economy, Pensions –

UPS is the latest corporation to freeze its pension plan. I have written extensively on the pension crisis that is infecting America with a fiscal disease that America will not recover from. And it is getting worse and worse. I mentioned Illinois earlier. By their own state policy experts the situation is now being referred to as “broken pension funds from which they [employees] may never see benefits”. How is that possible? The chart below shows how…

How bad is it? Try over $111,000,000,000 (yeah, $111billion) problem! And you, the taxpayer, will be required to bail them out. Over 60% NOT funded at this point!! That is fatal.

California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS) is also in horrendous trouble. They are also over $100,000,000,000 ($100billion) underfunded. And they are getting worse at an exponential rate. Another bailout by you, the taxpayer.

The Teamster pension funds have been in trouble (and getting worse), and many hospital pensions funds are now faltering as well. You think the federal Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. will take care of it? Think again! The Central States Teamster pension fund is paying out 340% of what it takes in. When that pension fund fails, which will occur relatively soon, that single pension fund failure will wipe out everything that the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. has in its coffers.

Then what? Yup! The federal government will step in, take control, and make taxpayers pay the tab.  But, only after they liquidate the pension’s mutual fund holdings. And what do you think that does to mutual funds? Yup…tanks their value as well.

This is a no-win situation and only getting worse. It is NOT an “if” situation…only when and how bad. I say it will tank the markets and the economy. Unless of course the Fed steps in and creates more digital money, devalues the currency, which only delays the inevitable.

Economy, Retail –

I warned about this for a while and recently went into detail about how bad it really is. Well, I was wrong! It is worse than what I have been saying. Retail is dying…and it will collapse with a huge economic thud that reverberates throughout the stock markets. We are losing huge numbers of jobs in the retail industry and that is helping sink the economy. Don’t look for retail to ever recover. It will only reset to a new normal. And that will be at the expense of large numbers of jobs.

I stopped in an office supply company last week. While I was in there I ran into the manager. I asked him how his store was hanging in there against Amazon. He said flat out that they weren’t, it was just a matter of time till they closed.

Supreme Court –

Ah yes…that tower of Babel. They are at it again. In their most recent ruling they ruled against the right of Americans to bear arms. And that in the face of Trump putting a conservative on the court. They ruled against the Second Amendment by not reviewing the case in California wherein California restricted the right to carry a gun. The move not to review the case effectively limits the right of a person to bear arms.

There is an even more disturbing anti-Second Amendment action taking place…by the Trump Administration. I will touch on that in a minute.

If you notice, there hasn’t been a Supreme Court case ruling to truly strengthen the Second Amendment since 2008. This should disturb you.

Trump Agenda –

This is going to p*$$ off a few of you. So be it.

Let’s talk health insurance. I don’t want to call it TrumpCare because it is a plan that was passed in the House and another bill being worked on in the Senate. But, Trump does clearly and vocally support the overall concepts. So, I guess I will call it TrumpCare after all. Trump is backing a massive, big-government, social welfare, Progressive, costly, liberal health insurance plan. But, you should not be surprised!

President Trump has called for and endorses a socialist single payer healthcare system (Universal Healthcare). He even wrote about it in one of his books! And yes, he has complimented both Canada’s and Australia’s socialist healthcare system. TrumpCare is a socialist healthcare system…just not as far to the left (socialist) as many socialist, liberal, Progressive countries. But, TrumpCare will fail…make no doubt about it. Socialism will not work in any degree. Not in healthcare, not in taxes, not in anything. Unfortunately, Trump believes in and supports as aspect of socialism that is doomed from the very beginning. The failure of TrumpCare will usher in single-payer government healthcare system.

When it comes to healthcare and health insurance…Government is not the solution, government is the problem.Reagan said "government is not the solution to our problem. government is the problem."Trump’s anti-Constitution agenda against the Second Amendment is real. The Supreme Court just refused to hear United States vs. Games-Perez which effectively rules in favor of the defendant. In this case, the defendant is a backer/supporter of the Second Amendment. The US was working against the Constitutional right to bear arms, they were the plaintiff. Even though the Supreme Court’s move supported the Constitution, Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions (pro-police-state advocate) has voiced his intention to fight the Supreme Court and try to restrict the Second Amendment. AG Sessions would not make this move without Trump’s approval, if not order.

Violence in America –

The political violence is making a huge spike in America. We’ve seen the radical left (Democrats) encourage it, endorse it, call for it. And it is happening. Last year I warned about the violence that would come…it is here. We just had an assassination attempt on multiple members of Congress. Make no doubt about it, the assassin was a liberal, a Democrat, a Progressive that was following what his party has been calling for. And I see it intensifying in the future. The real problem will come, the significant growth of violence will come, when the right gets fed up with the left and their violence. The right will fight back at some point. But, that is what TPTB are counting on.

When the violence erupts to the level I think it will, the average citizen will call for “law & order”, “safety & security”, “safe streets”, etc. And that will be all that little AG Jeff Sessions will need. Watch what happens then! Sessions is already a strong anti-Constitution, police-state advocate. He will use that crisis point as an opportunity.

Police violence is again increasing at an unprecedented pace. For a very long time I wrote in detail showing how militarized and violent the much of the police in America had become. How they were murdering citizens, mostly unarmed, at an alarming rate. It moderated for while with several high-profile cases wherein police were charged with homicide and various other crimes.

Well, most of those police officers that committed murder of unarmed and non-threatening citizens were found not guilty, acquitted, etc. So we see once again, the police in America gunning down citizens at an ever increasing rate. In the first 5 months of 2017 nearly 1000 people had been killed from police shootings.

And why do you think we are seeing that increase? You can get the answer right if you are honest with yourself.

As bad as this is…it’s not the worst part. We have seen a significant increase in “groups” no longer tolerant of being victims of police violence. And those groups have been infected with liberal/Progressive anarchists and political operatives that will incite violence against police. And once again, the good guys with a badge will suffer because of the bad guys with a badge…at the hands of the radical left (i.e. Democrats).

And for those of you that are rapid pro-police folks…don’t doubt me on any of this. I can bring out the stats and cases showing clearly that police have murdered people and gotten away with it. And have done it at an alarming rate. There is even crystal clear video of these murders by police and they still get away with it. Some of the cops even have long records of police brutality and still get away with their murders.

Why do they get away with it so easily? Because a HUGE slice of American citizens confuse “law & order” with “police state”. Well-intentioned folks call for and support “law & order” when what we are getting is an imposition of a police state. And those confused folks are mostly so-called Conservatives that have little understanding of unalienable rights and the Constitution. Those rights and the Constitution are there to constrain and restrict police and their power. But, I hear so many imitation conservatives calling for unrestrained support of police…even to the killing of citizens. Police are not, and were never intended to be, judge, jury and executioner.

[ click here to read an excellent article on police creating danger and then killing people ]

The Coup Against Trump Continues –

I have written for months now about the coup against Trump. All the primary conservative talking heads are now finally using that term. Even Hannity called it a “coup d’état” just last week. Strange, when I first brought this fact up months ago I was roundly criticized and made fun of on another website for calling it as such.

No, I don’t expect them to admit they were wrong…let alone apologize.

Jeh Johnson, former head of DHS has joined the coup as part of the current/former intelligence officials fighting to overthrow the President of the United States. A week ago when he testified in front of Congress he made it clear that he has joined Clapper, Comey, and a host of others in their war against Trump…a coup.

I warned my website visitors who Mueller was when he was appointed by Rosenstein. I wrote about Mueller’s liberal/Progressive connections and his close friendship with James Comey. I warned what was happening. I will make it even more clear.

Mueller has hired radical left-wing lawyers to assist him in his investigation into Russia/Trump. Not only are these lawyers racial leftists, they are all supporters and financial contributors to Hillary Clinton and a whole host of Democrat extremist politicians. So what do you think the outcome will be? Mueller’s group doesn’t even have to find actual evidence. He can just claim that there isn’t enough evidence to bring a charge of treason or felonies against Trump, or his associates. And that alone will be enough fodder to continue the coup against Trump.

And as a side note, don’t be surprised if Mueller uses the opportunity to bring down a leftie. This is a great time to put even the radical left folks in their place if they have stepped out of line and crossed their puppet masters.

Summary –

We still have a disastrous Trump presidency on our hands. We have Trump advocating a socialist healthcare program. His administration is working against the Second Amendment. And he is spending money like a drunken sailor putting us further in debt.

We have a Congress, Democrats and Republicans, that are both working against Trump in all the worst ways. We have Democrats that are acting openly in rebellion and performing in perfect concert with the most radical of socialist agendas. They have become nothing less than dangerous to America. Republicans aren’t far off that mark.

The economy is in trouble. Remember that I have gone into detail about the fact that the job loss rate has skyrocketed from last year and at almost an historic level. The surface may look calm, even positive, but don’t be fooled. The underlying major elements of the financial system in America are in serious trouble…the kind that we can’t recover from or overcome.

Get your house in order. Do those things that will make you as independent from the government as possible. Take steps to be as self-sufficient from the economy and financial sector of America as you can. Form friendships with like-minded people. Become a better you. Grow closer to, or find, God. Know who you are and what you believe in. Don’t get side-tracked or distracted by those that are into weird things/beliefs.

Just do that which you know to be right.

SitRep – 6/17/2017

I wanted to wait until the dust settled a bit. I wanted to allow sufficient time to see the trends and recognize the players clearly for who they are. I had to be patient. Now the time has come. Now I will speak my piece.

Remember, I am an outcomes kind of guy. I don’t see an event as the important part within a historical context. I see what is produced by the event as the piece of primary import.

This line of thinking allows me to not become distracted by the event itself, the participants, or their motivation. Granted those three aspects have significance, but they are of little consequence in relation to “outcome.”

In this case the outcome is ugly…and it will get worse.

“Never let…”

When I wrote my article “What’s going on???” on June 13th I was feeling a sense of foreboding. I didn’t like what I was seeing then, not at all, not even a little bit. The next morning was a witness to me of what our reality has become. A “canary in the mine” of where we are as a society.

My first thought after I heard what had happened, “How will the ‘power establishment’ in Washington be enhanced by this event?” It didn’t take long for the players to set the agenda. They are very predictable.

Surprise or Anticipated –

Those of you that are website visitors have a pretty good sense of the world around us and where we are headed as a country. Actually, most of us already know we have, as a country, already arrived at the destination. It is now just a matter of degree.

So, let me ask this, “Who was truly stunned at the shooting at the Congressional Republican baseball practice?”

Surprised maybe at the location or venue, but stunned about the shooting itself?

In this country the left has been ratcheting up the violence for quite some time. We’ve seen it in the riots of the radical left campus creeps. We’ve seen it in the AntiFa movement. We watched and heard in amazement as the Democratic politicians have called for it. And we have been astonished as we have seen the Hollywood lowlifes demonstrate and promote it. This shooting was simply another natural progression in their awful plan…their desire to see violence in America. That violence to bring America to its knees.

Was this shooting a surprise? No. Was it anticipated? Of course. Only the most ignorant of low IQ would not have seen this coming.

Reaction –

I won’t go into painful detail covering that which you have already seen. Suffice to say that the players stepped up to fulfill their expected roles with their predicted lines of thought and reasoning.

  • The moron Virginia Governor, among others, calling for gun control.
  • Congressmen calling for more security…for themselves.
  • MSNBC & CNN blaming it on the tone (free speech) that Trump has set.
  • Fox News and Breitbart blaming it on the violent left (free speech).
  • Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) bringing up violent right-wing hate groups.
  • Paul Ryan taking the middle ground.

The list could go on. The point is, everyone took their natural/normal positioning of either the right or left in this country. And they all played their respective parts perfectly. They played to their followers, playing on emotions. Why? To lull people into their comfort zones. To keep people from looking into what really happened. But more importantly, to keep people in their lane when it comes to the action plan that will come out of all of this.

Plan of Action –

Here is where we see what this country is all about. Here is where we see how right Rahm was…and is.

The SPLC works closely with the FBI to identify those that challenge the Washington power establishment. Well, honestly the FBI already knows about all the groups that the SPLC lists. But, because the SPLC is so vaunted by the media and the ruling class, the information the SPLC provides serves only as additional justification for the actions of the FBI. Remember, the SPLC is a radical left-wing extremist group dedicated to destroying any group outside of the radical Democrat/Liberal/Progressive political school of thought. They do so by demonizing as an actual, or potential, terrorist group, any of the above.

Let me be brief on what is happening now:

  1. The FBI has significantly shifted resources to “identify” more potentially violent political radicals.
  2. The FBI, NSA, and CIA has significantly increased active and passive surveillance of potential political radicals…and groups that espouse conservatism, Constitutionalism, and any group not falling in-line with a pro-government agenda.
  3. Congress is already working on legislation to significantly increase security of its members and facilities. That means drastically expanding the highly militarized security services of the federal government.
  4. The media (along with the SPLC) is working overtime to bring up the role of the hateful rhetoric being used on both sides, but primarily on the right.
  5. Congress is looking at the socialist, Communism-based, anti-free speech laws of the European Union and how they can be implemented here.

I am working on a lengthy article about the Overton Window concept and how it applies to what has happened, and is happening, in the United States. I will be releasing that in the coming month. But, in short, this shooting will act as catalyst to degrade rights, liberties, and freedoms of people. And simultaneously increasing the power of the federal government.  That is their plan of action.

Summary –

It is easy for those with eyes that see and ears that hear to know this guy Hodgkinson was a nut job. It matters not a bit that he was a radical, violent Democrat/Liberal/Progressive. What matters is his motivation and action. He felt, for whatever reason, that he had to take action. I can only imagine that he felt relatively hopeless that his single vote or voice no longer makes any difference at all. And he would be correct in thinking that. Recent studies show that in concept and reality, the average American has ZERO voice in what happens in Washington.

So desperation drove him to an act of violence. He perceived that this was his last resort to have an impact…his last option to make a difference.

And unfortunately we are witnessing in this country a radical increase in desperation. A sense of “we don’t have a say anymore” thinking has taken root wide and deep. If you talk to people, Republicans, Democrats, or any others, you find almost an universal sense that the government in Washington no longer represents the people. And they are absolutely 100% right. Washington only represents the ruling class, the political class, and the rich. Those in our government, politicians and bureaucrats, don’t give a damn about “We the People” anymore…nope, not a bit.

There is little wonder that some worm like Hodgkinson finally loses his grip on reality and goes postal. You need to see it for what it is…and act of desperation. Pure and simple, a man that felt there was no longer any other option. And he chose evil over good.

But, those in Washington don’t care one iota about his motivations. They don’t care who he is, what he felt, or why he did that despicable deed. They care only about one thing…how can they use this crisis to accomplish that which they couldn’t do under normal times and conditions.

So why did I write this article at all? For your Situational Awareness (SA). Whether you agree with me or not on everything I just wrote…fine. What I want you to do is not get sucked into a neatly defined box. Any box defined by the media, by the political class, and surely not by the law & order hard right. Come to your own conclusions!

What I want you to do is keep your eyes open and see what they do with this act of evil. See how they twist it and use it to their advantage, to forward their agenda. Watch how they try and reduce rights, liberties and freedoms of people. Watch how they increase the power of the ruling class, the political class…and how much it costs the American citizenry.

I ask only this of you:

  • Keep your eyes open.
  • Keep preparing.
  • Grow closer to your family.
  • Grow closer to God.
  • Become a better person.
  • Have no fear.

SitRep – 6/3/2017 (Economic Alert!)

I don’t like what I am seeing…at all!

Since the election of Trump many people have been sickeningly euphoric about the economy. Some have claimed job growth is skyrocketing, stock market is reaching all-time highs, jobs are coming back to the US, industry is growing, etc., etc…ad nauseam. These people are delusional, sycophants, blind, stupid, or trying to be part of some weird disconnected political or cultural movement. Whatever their motivation or reasoning…they are wrong…dead wrong.

Job Growth –

Let’s take April 2017 job’s report:

  • 211,000 jobs added. Not bad by the sounds of it.
  • 62,000 of those jobs are in the extreme low-end of the job market…retail, leisure and hospitality.
  • 17,000 jobs went to the government that sucks money out of the economy vs. contributing.
  • Nearly 40% of the jobs created either were low-paying or economy hurting jobs.

But how does April 2017 compare to April 2016:

  • April 2016 added 160,000 jobs vs. April 2017 of 211,000 jobs…that’s a 50k increase in new jobs.

Sound pretty good?

Let’s look at reality now…

Year-To-Date job cuts are 122,389 for 2017. Last year job cuts for the same time period was only 65,742. That means we’ve lost nearly double the jobs this year vs. last year in April.

So let’s revisit the April 2017 jobs report…a 50k increase in new jobs vs April 2016. Now, hold that thought for a minute.

We are losing almost double the jobs in 2017 vs. 2016. In real terms we are suffering nearly a 100% increase in job cuts and barely a 30% increase in new jobs. The reality is…we are losing economic ground in 2017…BIG TIME!

We are on-pace to suffer approximately 200,000 job cuts in 2017, possibly more. Even at 200k jobs lost, that will be some of the worst job cut statistics since the Great Recession!!!

Throw that on top of the mall-closing report. Remember I have been warning about retail problems. A new report out says that 25% of all malls will be closed within five years. Who doubts that? Malls are a dying breed just like the old video rental stores.

Here are the questions that need to be asked in light of those mall closings”

  • Where will those low-end retail workers get jobs?
  • How much money is lost from the loss of income from store workers?
  • How much money is lost to the local economy from the removal of those stores?
  • How much do commercial property values go down as a result of a massive amount of retail space now dumped on the local real-estate markets?

Are store closings really that bad?

For 2017 over 8,600 stores are expected to close. Not only is that the highest in 17 years…it is almost 45% worse than the Great Recession!!

Look folks…don’t be fooled, don’t be blind, don’t be part of the problem…be informed!!!  Look at the reality of the economy…it sucks! Any way you look at it things are bad and it is getting worse. You can think Trump is doing a great job for the economy but let the facts, the actual real numbers and statistics speak for themselves. And it ain’t good by a long shot!

Why should “retail” problems worry you? Historically the only spending that drives our economy up is…consumer spending (i.e. retail). If we are losing retail jobs and closing stores and retail spending is down…well, you do the math.

Further Evidence –

Let’s talk jobs for May 2017…There were only 138,000 jobs added last month, May 2017. The expectation was 185,000…that is 34% few jobs created than was expected. That is terrible!

Now consider the 2017 job cuts. There were (averaged) 24,000 jobs cut in May. That means there was only a net job growth of 114,000 jobs created in May 2017. That is unreal bad…extremely bad!

Let me make this very, VERY real for you…it takes approximately a net increase of jobs each month to keep up with population growth minus those leaving the job market. That number varies a little each month but averages about 105,000 new jobs required each month just to keep up with population growth minus people leaving the workforce.

So bottom line…in May 2017 we saw a net increase of only 9,000 jobs!  Would you call that a booming economic report? How about just a good economic report? I call it a catastrophic economic report!

Let’s go back to the April 2017 job numbers that were touted as “proof” that the economy was roaring.

  •   211,000 jobs created
  • -105,000 jobs required to stay even with population growth
  • –  24,500 actual job cuts

81,500 actual net job increase…a far cry from the 211,000 figure that the government originally threw out there as “proof” of a major economic boom taking place. But, don’t forget that 62,000 of those jobs were retail, leisure and hospitality jobs…most of which are seasonal jobs for summer travel and vacations. Oh, and now let us not forget that 14,000 jobs went to growing the government itself.

That leaves a grand total of 5,500 new jobs for real people in the private sector. How’s that for “proof” of an economic boom!

Debt Bomb –

For the first time this morning I heard our national debt crisis referred to as a “debt bomb”. Wow! I knew that $20,000,000,000,000 (20trillion) was a lot of debt. I know it is bad for our country. I know that it is sinking us…but “bomb”??? Well, I guess I didn’t understand just how bad it really is.

As I was doing my research for this SitRep I found that Peter Schiff used the term in January 2017. As I crunched the numbers I now understand why Schiff was right to sound the bomb alarm when he did.

Our national debt, money actually owed, is $20,000,000,000,000. Our current average interest rate on that amount is approximately 2.16%. That means each year we spend about $440,000,000,000 ($440billion) just in debt interest. For every .1% (1/10th of 1%) that the interest rate increases, that is another $21,000,000,000 ($21billion) in annual interest payments.

So let’s imagine the interest rate increasing by a single percentage point to 3.16%. That means we are now paying nearly $650,000,000,000 ($650billion) in annual interest payments and NOT REDUCING the debt by a single dollar.

So when does the interest payment become too much for the government to afford?

More Debt Bomb –

The chart above should be very disturbing. Here is what it shows:

  1. Overall private debt is back at 2008 Great Recession levels.
  2. Private debt is less secured than it was at 2008 Great Recession levels.
  3. Overall private debt is rising at alarming rate, biggest increase in a decade.

Here’s the next whammy!

  • Home buying has slowed WAY down, and far fewer people have a mortgage.
  • Auto loan debt has increased substantially and is way a head of 2008 levels.
  • Credit card debt is just about the same as 2008 levels.
  • Student loan debt is twice what it was at 2008 levels.
  • All other debt is about the same as 2008 levels.

Conclusion: Private debt (folks like you and me) is at the same levels as 2008. However, that debt is far less secured…by a huge amount vs. 2008.

When Great Recession #2 hits…what happens in addition to losing a family home?

What happens to all that auto debt? What happens to all of that student loan debt?

A hidden nugget of knowledge hidden away in there…The US population is far less financially stable now that just before the 2008 Great Recession. Let’s go over a couple more 2008 Great Recession figures:

  • Americans lost nearly $20trillion dollars in real-term wealth.
  • The federal government spent over $23trillion in government handout programs.

That is $43trillion in losses and government spending in the Great Recession of 2008. That is $14,300 for every man, woman, and child in the United States! To pay that massive loss:

  • Americans lost trillions in the stock market.
  • Americans lost trillions in home foreclosures.
  • The US Government borrowed and gave away trillions in money it borrowed.

What happens this time?

  • Americans own far less stocks and mutual funds.
  • Americans own far fewer homes.

What’s left?

From 2008 to 2015 the national debt doubled. Almost 100% of that was paying for the 2008 Great Recession.

When Great Recession #2 hits we are looking at the national debt once again doubling to “bailout” American citizens. And that my friend means out debt servicing costs doubles…at a minimum.

1988 in Review –

In 1988 the total national debt was $2.6trillion and the interest paid on that paid was $214billion. That tells you we were paying 8.2% interest on the national debt. If that was the case today (debt vs. interest rate) we would be paying $1.6trillion just for the interest payment on our national debt…nearly FOUR times what we are actually paying today. That $1.6trillion represents 50% of all federal government revenues for last year!!!!

So now how do you think we survive as a country, as a society, and a Constitutional Republic when the actual scope of our debt finally comes to the forefront?

Magic Breaking Point –

For the first time I have been able to actually calculate a true TEOTWAWKI breaking point. It is an actual economic “end-of-the-world” mile post.

The magic national debt interest rate (i.e. 10-year T-Bill) number that crashes the economy is 5% – 7%. At that point the annual interest owed exceeds the government’s financial ability to pay that interest and meet other obligations such as national defense and entitlements.

But, there is also another magic number…total debt service costs. We are currently at about $430billion per year in debt servicing costs. When that number reaches approximately $850billion it will be just as bad as a 4.1% debt interest rate. Meaning this, if we have another Great Recession and the government spends its way out again…the economy crashes.

Here is the problem that will manifest itself when that time comes. We have two Constitutional requirements when it comes to US federal government payments; 1) Civil War Union Army pensions, 2) debt interest. The Union Army pension issue is resolved. But, what about #2?

The federal government has obligated itself to pay for certain programs, namely entitlements and national defense. So, let’s ask the questions when money gets tight as I outlined…

  1. Does the federal government pay debt interest as per Constitutional obligation?
  2. Does the federal government continue to pay people their entitlement checks?
  3. Does the federal government continue to pay for national defense?

What happens if the answer to any of those three questions is “no”?

So what is the answer you came up with?

I can think of only one answer that doesn’t involve a “no” to all of the above. The scheme is called “inflating”. It is where the federal government simply creates money out of thin air at an almost unheard of pace to pay the debt interest, and maybe some of the debt itself, along with all its other obligations.

The problem is…that scheme has never, ever worked in the history of the world. It has always failed. And when it has failed it has always ushered in a dictatorship…an authoritarian state.

Any why an “authoritarian state”? Because the people rebel against the ruling class and rich elites that caused the problem. And a strong man comes along and crushes the unruly populace in favor of the ruling class and rich elites.

And is there anything that would make you think it would be any different with the good ole USA?

What I Will Do –
  • At 5% debt serving rate (10-year T-Bill) or $800billion debt service –
    • I will 100% in cash & precious metals (no CDs, no bonds, etc.)
    • Zero debt.
    • Living full-time at my BOL.
    • All preps 100%.
  • At 4.5% debt serving rate (10-year T-Bill) or $700billion debt service –
    • All preps 100%.
  • At 4% debt serving rate (10-year T-Bill) or $600billion debt service-
    • I will cash in all my IRAs, 402Ks, etc.
    • I will have a fuel supply for my vehicles and never below 3/4 tank of gas.
  • At 3.5% debt serving rate (10-year T-Bill) or $500billion debt service –
    • My minimum food & seed storage goals 100% complete.
    • Keep a minimum of six months cash on hand.
    • BOL property self-sustaining.

I am sure I will add more to the list as time goes on, but this is the basic minimums I intend to have completed.

Summary –

It is coming at us…like a freaking freight train.

  1. US government debt is worse than it was in 2008 by a factor of 2.
  2. US private debt is worse than it was in 2008.
  3. Job cuts have doubled in the last year.
  4. Home ownership is down significantly.
  5. Retail/consumer spending is taking a big hit.

Then there is the political war taking place in Washington. Make your own conclusion on that outcome.

That freight train is headed right for us!

And no, Trump and Congress are not going to be able to slow it down, let alone stop it. Trump, nor Congress, is proposing anything, not a single thing, that actually reduces the national debt or slows the national spending. Granted, they are moving the money to different priorities. But, what good does that do us if we still sink the country?

What I am asking you to do is this:

  • Do not be fooled!
  • Do not be blinded!
  • Do not be pacified!
  • Do not panic!
  • Do not allow politicians to control you!
  • Do not allow the rich elites to control you!
  • Take control of your own life.
  • Take control of your own finances and spend your money where it will do the most good for your family.
  • Stay awake and be prepared to move quickly.
  • Grow closer to God.
  • Learn to be a better servant to others.

SitRep – 5/27/2017

What the heck is going on???? !!!!!! ?????

Doesn’t it seem as if you ask yourself that question each day! Well, there is good reason for that…we are in an era of unparalleled upheaval at every turn. And it is all of our own making.

Brennan, Another Coup Player –

Throwing everything at the wall to see what sticks is the game plan of those fighting against Trump. The latest was testimony of former CIA Director John Brennan trying to tie Trump to the Russians in some dark conspiracy. Let’s set aside the fact that he couldn’t actually make that connection…the important point is he tried to and was more than willing to do so.

First off, you have to understand he is a hand-picked Obama sycophant. This man spent 25 years with the CIA learning to kill, torture, lie, deceive, and overthrown sovereign leaders. He was personally in charge of the “Disposition Matrix”, otherwise known as America’s “kill list.” Yes, you read that right. John Brennan, under the direction of Barack Obama was personally responsible for maintaining the infamous kill list. This man could pick and choose who CIA personnel (and contractors) or the military killed without trial or even a hearing. Brennan stated, “it’s a necessary part of what we do”. How’s that for an item on your resume!? Or, how’s that for part of your moral foundation?

Brennan also served as the President and CEO of The Analysis Corporation (TAC). TAC is a government contractor performing very, very shady work for federal intelligence agencies.

What is important here is this…Brennan is another intelligence player trying to overthrow the President of the United States. That now makes it clear that the entire intelligence community leadership is working very hard behind the scenes and publicly to overthrow Trump.

Coup Note: If the coup is not real, then why is the Washington Times running this headline, “The latest news from the president in exile” from an article on 5/25? And why are they referring to the “government in exile” and Obama as the “president in exile“…just saying.

Manchester Intelligence Leak –

Right after the Manchester Bombing a few days ago, US intelligence agencies leaked extremely sensitive and highly classified information to the media. That intelligence was given to the US intelligence agencies by the Manchester police and other UK intelligence agencies. It wasn’t just a single leak but a series of leaks. Here is the reaction of the folks in the UK, “British police believe the leaks are unprecedented in their scope, frequency and potential damage.”

So why did American intelligence agencies leak that information to the media?

Only a single reason…to embarrass Trump and weaken America.

Why endeavor to accomplish those two missions? I’ve told you consistently for quite a while now…United States intelligence agencies, specifically the US secret police (FBI, CIA, & NSA) are in the process of overthrowing the President of the United States.

Their end goal? I’ve talked about this at length as well…their goal is nothing less than the establishment of a totalitarian police state. And they are winning. For more information read previous SitReps and the FAQ articles.

Sessions & 2nd Amendment –

Most of the time in today’s world it is the little things that you have to watch for that point out where we are headed and what is happening. One of those little things was Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his recent anti-Second Amendment stance. Remember, Sessions works for Trump, so what Session does supposedly represents Trump’s beliefs and desires.

Just a couple days ago Sessions declared his intention to work against the Second Amendment. For reference the Second Amendment states…

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

It is clear as a bell, no qualification, no equivocation, no exceptions, nothing…period…”shall not be infringed.”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions does not support the Second Amendment. Sessions is going to court to ensure that non-violent felons cannot have their right to bear arms restored. But, that is not the worse part…he isn’t protecting the Second Amendment to begin with!

Gun rights shouldn’t be limited or infringed period! It is crystal clear to any reader, lover, and supporter of the Constitution. It is exactly clear in what was written, what was intended, and for very good reasons. But, you have a powerful “law & order” advocate in AG Sessions that doesn’t believe in, and won’t support the Second Amendment.

It is plain and simple…you either believe in and support the Constitution or you don’t. If you don’t then you are no friend of our Constitutional Republic.

But, let’s test what I am saying…Is there anything else that would indicate the Jeff Sessions doesn’t support the Constitution?

The answer is once again, an unqualified “yes!” Sessions has made it clear that he 100% supports Civil Asset Forfeiture (CAF). CAF is a process, completely outside of the judicial system, that allows the federal government to seize any asset of any person they so desire. A person doesn’t have to be convicted of a crime of any kind for CAF to be invoked. And FYI…a person doesn’t even have to be charged with a crime. What about the CAF that violates the Constitution? CAF violates the Fifth Amendment, Sixth Amendment, and Ninth Amendment.

Let’s test Sessions one more time just to make sure I have it right. How do you feel about Big Brother? Do you feel the Patriot Act was the most “police state”, illegal, anti-Constitutional, intrusive, and power abusive move by the federal government in recent memory?

Constitutional expert and advocate Judge Andrew P. Napolitano said this, “The Patriot Act has a bad pedigree and an evil history.” Yup….he said “evil‘!

So now we test that against what AG Jeff Sessions has said about the Patriot Act, “The provisions in the Patriot Act are in no way extreme, in no way novel, in no way contradictory to the principles of the constitutional law this country has operated under since its founding.”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is exceptionally anti-Constitution and extreme in his anti-American views of the law! He clearly rejects the Constitutional Bill of Rights (specifically five of them).

So what is he?

He is a huge advocate of a police state, an all powerful federal government, anti-states’ rights, and totalitarian government advocate. That is plain and simple…his beliefs, words, and actions prove it beyond a any doubt. AG Sessions is a very dangerous man.

So where does that place Trump?

Well, it was Trump that named Sessions as AG. It was Trump that has spoken highly of Sessions. And it was Trump that also stated that he supports and wants to strengthen CAF. On February 7th of this year in a meeting with law enforcement national leadership Trump voiced his unqualified support for CAF.

When a LEO leader brought up a Texas legislator that was fighting to weaken CAF Trump said, “Who is the state senator?  Want to give his name?  We’ll destroy his career.”

“Destroy his career.”   Those are the words that a madman, or a dictator, would speak.

Appears that Sessions and Trump are of the same mindset.

Greg Gianforte, They Just Don’t Get It –

This past week Congressional candidate Greg Gianforte “body slammed” a reporter. The media became hysterical once again. Why? Because they are some kind of alien life form! Listen, Montana elected this guy…why? Because they wanted him to represent them! So would I.

Everyone hates reporters, the polling data all shows that the media, especially reporters, are hated as much as herpes and rapists. Yeah, for good reason. So when a reporter pushed himself on Gianforte and invaded his personal space during a social event, the reporter got exactly what he deserved. More power to Gianforte…and thank you Mr. Gianforte for doing what most of us Americans would love to do.

There is this thing called “personal space” and you know what that is. It is the area immediately around you that people, decent people, stay out of. They stay out of personal space out of respect for each other.

Well, reporters are not respectful…actually, they are barely human. To understand the person that reporter Ben Jacobs is, it takes only knowing his background. Jacobs is a radical left-wing extremist. He has worked for far-left media outlets and he is a radical Progressive. He was there for one purpose, a single intention, to bait Gianforte. Well, he did…and he got what was coming to him.

If more people behaved liked Gianforte, and more people like Jacobs learned life’s lessons the hard way, we would have a much, much better society. But alas, the whack-job left has no clue how decent people should live and behave…so they will continue to be the provocateurs of violence and the personification of what is wrong in this world. All the while criticizing everyone but themselves.

Big Money, Big Corporate CEOs, Big Trouble for America –

Starbucks Howard Shultz and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerburg have recently become the latest big corporation billionaires to advocate for extreme socialism in America. They are advocating for extremist ideas such as universal income, government universal health care system, extreme tax rates for the middle class, massive welfare programs, massive redistribution of wealth, and a huge all-powerful federal government.

Why is that important? Because the Democrat Party with its anti-American extremist philosophies are the party of the rich. The Democratic Party dwarfs the Republican Party in terms of billionaire supporters. And guys like Zuckerberg, Shultz, Gates, Buffet, etc. are all extremely anti-Christian, anti-family, non-Consitutionalists, police state advocates, Federalists, and more…much more. And they have the money to move their agenda forward…and they are…and they are winning.

Remember, it is guys like Gates and Zuckerberger that are willingly and enthusiastically assisting the FBI, NSA, and CIA by providing all technology-based information on all Americans that pass through their huge mega-operations. Yup, go do the research. These left-wing radicals are providing information on you and all Americans to America’s secret police. And there is only one purpose behind it…an all-powerful federal government. And why do you think all those uber-rich billionaires are supporting an all-powerful, police-state federal government?

Static, Confusion, Deception, and You –

We are in an unprecedented time in America. We are watching and experiencing the overthrow of America’s Constitutional Republic form of government. We are seeing the federal government establishment -led by the FBI, CIA, and NSA- overthrow a sitting President. We are watching this tragedy unfold before our eyes. Everything good about America is being torn apart and destroyed by a coalition of the ruling class, the political class, the rich elites, and the media. We are watching the intentional and systematic destruction of America…in real-time.

What we witness every day is a mixture of truth and fiction. The fiction is designed to divert your attention, or capture your attention, so you don’t see the meaningful destructive actions taking place. The coalition that I just referred to wants to keep your life in such turmoil that you will be unable to see and/or react to what is happening that is actually important. That renders you helpless and ineffective…if you let them control you, have power over you. That in turn allows them to advance their agenda unimpeded.

Can you do anything meaningful to stop or reverse any of this? No, not really. This war is being fought at a very high level, far above what you and I can impact. But, there will come a time that is will directly affect you and I. And it will be our preparedness that might, and I say might, save us and our family.

Summary –

Once again:

  • Stay informed. Don’t become blinded by their shiny objects. Keep your Situational Awareness sharp. Don’t listen to the static. Don’t get distracted.
  • Don’t become a blind follower of anyone.
  • Keep preparing and don’t get discouraged.
  • Grow your sphere of influence. Become prepared to lead.
  • Be ready to act when the time and need comes.
  • Enjoy your life, enjoy your family, love that blue sky, take a walk and listen to the birds. Life and family are both wonderful gifts…don’t squander them.

SitRep – 5/16/2017 >>ALERT!

I wrote this article yesterday afternoon (Monday 5/15), then did my final edit about 9:30pm. Yeah, then I woke up at 4am…worried. I was worried that the article was too “alarmist” in tone. I mean I am claiming WWIII to have started, that a Civil War is taking place, and our President is in the process of being overthrown by the ruling class.

Nah! That’s not alarmist at all…right!

So I laid there in bed and thought it through. You either believe me because I have proven myself to be pretty dang accurate in what I publish. Or, you will dismiss what you read because you think I am making stuff up. Then again, you might think I am a card-carrying tinfoil hat kind of person.

But, what hit me the most…I have to put this out there. I know I am right. I might not have each detail exactly right, maybe I am not spot-on about each person, and I probably am off on timelines. But, I know that I am connecting the dots correctly. So I am a voice of warning. What you do with that warning is up to you.

So here is the challenge…prove me wrong. Yup, don’t believe a single word I print in this article, or any other. Rather, try and find valid and reliable information that proves me wrong, that what I am saying is not true. Because in the final analysis you are responsible for yourself and your family. I am only be a voice of warning. And I am perfectly OK with that.


Here we go…the situation in the world and in the USA has just ratcheted up another notch. We have some serious problems facing us right now. Those problems are so serious that I am producing another SitRep on the heels of the one on 5/10 & 5/3.

There are dark forces at work right now in this country. Forces that would like to see nothing less than the Constitution being destroyed…completely destroyed.

In this SitRep I will cover the following:

  • The coup to overthrow Trump continues and intensifies
  • Update on the secret police in the US
  • World War III has started
  • I personally caught the Trump White House lying…clearly and unequivocally lying. And I can prove it.
The Coup Continues –

James Clapper, unindicted co-conspirator, has clearly made known his participation in the coup against Trump. I said back in March <SitRep – 3/6/2017> that James Comey and James Clapper were coordinating the actions of America’s secret police (FBI, CIA, & NSA) in the coup against Trump. Clapper, who repeatedly perjured himself during Congressional hearings, stated over the weekend that:

  • Russia interfered in our 2016 presidential elections.
  • Trump colluded with Russia in that interference.
  • Russia is assaulting our governmental institutions (i.e. an act of war).
  • Trump is assaulting our governmental institutions (eroding the Constitutional system of checks & balances) from inside the White House (act of treason).
  • Trump worked with, and gave a victory to, Russia when he fired James Comey.

Here is what we know about James clapper, former head of National Intelligence:James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, he denied that the NSA spied on Congress

  • He repeatedly perjured himself in Congressional hearings. All of which are felonies.
  • He repeatedly lied to the American public through statements and press releases.
  • He led the intelligence services to illegally and unconstitutionally acquire communications of regular Americans through massive acquisitions of all electronic communications.
  • He illegally authorized the “unmasking” of persons to the Obama administration for purely political purposes. Estimates are in the 2000 persons range. All of which were felonies.
  • He illegally authorized intelligence services to unconstitutionally conduct surveillance operations on members of Congress, both Representatives and Senators.

Clapper is a slimy dirt bag that is actively attempting, in conjunction with others, to overthrow the President of the United States.

Here is what we know about James Comey, former Director of the FBI:

  • We know that Comey was, and still is, working to oust Trump from office.
  • We know that Comey was a highly politicized appointee by Obama working directly for Obama’s political agenda.
  • We know that Comey used the FBI in coordination with the IRS against Tea Party and other conservative and constitutional non-profits. Yes, multiple felonies.
  • We know Comey perjured himself in Congressional hearings. Once again, felonies.
  • We know that Comey worked for AG Loretta Lynch. And after Lynch met privately with Bill Clinton is when Comey announced that although Hillary Clinton repeatedly committed multiple felonies, including national security violations, that Hillary would not be charged.
  • This is the same Comey that had threatened Apple Computer to give the FBI unfettered access to all Apple devices regardless of country or the legality.
  • We know that Comey illegally used intelligence and electronic communications that were illegally acquired by the NSA.

Comey is another slimy dirt bag that is actively attempting, in conjunction with others, to overthrow the President of the United States.

We are now entering a period of critical mass. We have the Democrats in an all-out assault on the Trump Presidency. You now have multiple Congressional Dems calling for the immediate impeachment of Trump. You see sleaze bag Liberal/Progressives like John McCain (so-called Republican) joining the battle to overthrow Trump. The media is obviously all in for overthrowing Trump.

This coup is real and continuing to grow.

Now that they are building and strengthening the case of “Trump & Russia against the United States” you will see more calls from both sides of the political aisle for a special investigation and prosecutor to probe that connection. And they will find enough…I am not sure exactly what, but they will find enough.

And possibly, very possibly, it will accurate and real. Remember General Michael Flynn? He has made it easy to link Trump to Russia through his highly suspect actions and financial dealings. Guilty or not he has added gasoline to the fire.

The Secret Police –

I keep talking about America’s secret police, and for good reason. The FBI, CIA, and the NSA all comprise to make up the generic term secret police. Here is what we now know to be 100% fact about those highly armed paramilitary organizations:

  • They have been illegally collecting all electronic communications and information on all Americans for over 10 years. And the whole time they’ve been denying it. However, all the information and documents released over the last two years through investigations and document leaks makes it clear they have been lying to us and to Congress all along.
  • The FBI, in conjunction with the IRS, illegally worked to suppress conservatives, Tea Party groups, and Constitution advocate groups. This is not just illegal but irrefutably unconstitutional…an outright act of treason.
  • We know the FBI has a long history of political influencing via blackmail and extortion of politicians and even Presidents.
  • We know that the CIA has been working clandestinely to influence elections around the world for over five decades.
  • We know that the CIA has violently overthrown governments around the world, including assignations of sovereign leaders.
  • We know that the NSA and FBI have undertaken a systematic abuse of the FISA court to otherwise illegally obtain intelligence information of US citizens.
  • We know that the NSA and the FBI have intimidated and extorted cooperation of technology companies to provide massive amounts of data on regular US citizens that would otherwise be illegal to obtain.
  • We know that the NSA and the FBI has intimidated and extorted cooperation of technology companies to provide “backdoor” access to their software and electronic devices.
  • We know the source of last week’s world-wide cyber-attacks was done with malware developed by the NSA.

And the list could go on and on and on. The point is we know beyond any shadow of a doubt that America’s secret police are working against the interests of American citizens. We know for absolute fact that they are breaking the law and their actions are also without question unconstitutional. We know for 100% certainty that they are lying about it to not just the American public, but committing perjury (felonies) when testifying in front of Congress. Yet, they continue to operate with impunity!

So the natural question would be, “Why?”

There are actually two questions here; 1) Why are they doing it to begin with? 2) Why aren’t they being stopped?

The first question is an easy one…America’s secret police is committing these treasonous actions because they support the establishment of a police state, a totalitarian government, and are actively working to assist in its establishment. To overthrow the Constitution they must subdue the citizens and silence all opposition. Their actions prove their intentions.

The second question is almost as easy, just a little more complicated…America’s secret police can’t be stopped because of their immense power…we are talking serious life and death kind of power. And combined with that are their powerful co-conspirators that are in the government establishment (i.e. political class). And we know that the secret police answer to the ruling class (i.e. Clapper, Comey, Clintons, Bushes, etc.). Hence, the secret police are doing what all secret police have done throughout history…acquired power, abused power, subdued the population, silenced the opposition, and supported the ruling elites.

World War III –

I am sure by now you have heard some rumblings about WWIII in more alternative and  mainstream outlets. I am here to tell you the war has started…yes, it has already started!

Asymmetrical warfare is a concept of making war on your enemy in multiple ways, from multiple directions; quick and nimble tactics from unsuspected directions. It is unconventional warfare. It is designed to throw your enemy off-balance and not allow them a clear path of response.

What we are seeing is this:

  • Russia attacked us when they hacked political operations during the 2016 presidential campaign.
  • Russia and her agents are behind multiple cyber-attacks against the US and our allies as recently as last week.
  • Russia has openly challenged the US militarily with armed fighters vs. our intelligence gathering aircraft.
  • Russia continues to challenge US sovereignty by air and naval intrusions of US controlled airspace and water. The challenges have been both intelligence gathering and strategic aircraft, submarines, and intelligence gathering ships.
  • China has used North Korea to militarily destabilize the Asian Rim area in direct opposition to American interests.
  • China hacked US government computers systems repeatedly in the last couple of years. These were massive breeches and data acquisition.
  • China continues to openly and directly challenge the US by establishing military bases in contested China Sea areas.
  • North Korea has used military intimidation against her neighbors, especially South Korea and Japan (US allies) directly challenging the military interests of the US.
  • North Korea continues to openly challenge the US politically and militarily with the testing of ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons.
  • North Korea has placed two military satellites strategically over the US. Intelligence reports have confirmed that these satellites appear to be, and are highly likely, capable of EMP strikes.
  • Iran continues to regularly challenge the US militarily in the Middle East, primarily minor naval operations. They even captured two naval vessels and briefly held US sailors prisoner.
  • Iran continues to build its nuclear capability. The increased capability of Iran’s on-going nuclear program was financed through cash payments by President Obama directly to Iran via pallets of cash delivered by private jet.
  • Iran has armed and is using puppet states to combat US interests through international terrorism.

And the list goes on. We are in a de facto state of war. Mostly so far it is a cyber war, one we are losing. There are some limited military operations, none of which have gone to a state of open engagement…yet.

But, here is the main point…one that should gravely concern you…we have all these international players openly working against us in a virtual war, but we also have all the internal political players at war against the Constitution…at war with the American ideal…at war against the American dream of our Founding Fathers.

Clapper even openly stated that our institutions are being assaulted from external and internal enemies. He correctly identified the external enemies (i.e. Russia), but he is attempting yet another deception against us, a lie of biblical proportions…he, James Clapper, is part of the internal assault. Actually he is part of the leadership assaulting our country, assaulting our President, and most importantly…assaulting our Constitutional Republic. Clapper, along with Comey and others, are traitors…in my mind they have committed treason.

We are in a World War…a coalition of countries – Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, and Syria – are engaged in asymmetrical warfare against the United States of America.

We are in a Civil War…a coalition of the ruling/political class along with the elites are engaged in political warfare to overthrow the President of the United States and bring down the United States of America as a constitutional republic and replace with it with a totalitarian state.

And we are losing both wars.

Trump White House is Lying –

The Trump administration released a statement on Monday (5/15) that the recent cyber-attacks (last week and Monday) didn’t affect any US government computer systems. That is a lie! I have personal firsthand knowledge that the cyber-attacks last week brought down the largest federal emergency resources dispatch website five days ago. And it was still down as of late Monday morning.

I also have personal firsthand knowledge that multiple cyber-attacks were mounted against, and impacted, the Department of Interior’s entire computer and email systems last week. And there is still some residual affect as of Monday (5/15).

And who knows how many other Departments and Agencies were attacked.

So, ask yourself…Why would the Trump administration lie about government computers being cyber-attacked?

Summary –

Once again I am informing my website visitors that we are in some very tough times. On any given morning we could find ourselves in an open state of a shooting war in the world…or in a brutal and violent civil war started by those that wish to destroy America.

Is this credible? Test me on it. Look back over the last 2-1/2 years and the information I’ve been putting out about our government, the coup, the secret police, the people like Comey and Clapper…all of it. I’ve been right all along. And I am right now.

I urge you to continue to prepare. But, I also just as fervently urge you to not panic. There is no need to. The wars that are taking place right now are at a very high level and don’t affect people at our level in our daily lives…yet. There will come a time when it does…and it will be bad. But, that time is not yet.

Go about your daily life giving thanks for the blessings you have. Be grateful for and enjoy the time you can spend with your family. And go outside and do something as something as simple as take in the beauty of a blue sky morning.

Be prudent, prepare, but don’t panic. Panic will do you and no one else any good. What I want you to do is to listen to that little voice inside of you…and follow it. Listen to its promptings, its quiet whisperings, and allow it to guide you in doing the important things in your life. You need to.

In a bigger picture, I am monitoring the situations closely and will continue to provide updates through the website as I feel confident in the validity of the information. Until then…know that I care about you and your family very much. I can honestly say that I love my website supporters and visitors. That is you 🙂

Have faith in heaven above! He will not fail us.

Comey fired, Trump in danger.

A bold stroke for President Trump! One that I highly respect, appreciate, and thank him for. Obviously I am talking about the firing of James Comey. Also, a move that Trump should be more than just a little concerned about.

For a very long time I have been sharing information on just how despicable a man James Comey, former FBI Director, is. He is a man that is all about power…extreme power. He is a man that is close to the center of leadership of the ruling elites in America. He was a key player when I wrote on March 6th of this year that Comey was coordinating America’s secret police (FBI, CIA, NSA) for their part in the overthrow of Trump. Yes, the literal overthrow. Trump has struck back and struck hard and to the very core of those involved. But, it wasn’t only a bold move, it was a dangerous move.

The ruling elite in this country have plans…a totalitarian state wherein people are finally and completely subjugated to the Federal government. That process has been going on for some time and has been highly effective…they are winning. That being the case, those behind the curtain are not going to stand ideally by and watch as their plans are thwarted and a key player of theirs is disemboweled from power. They will strike back. The question is, “How?”

We’ve already seen the main players stand up for Comey. Senator Chuck Schumer almost immediately came to the defense of Comey and implied that Trump was making a move to cover-up a Russia-Trump alliance. Of course Schumer would…as I said back in the March article, Schumer is coordinating the Congressional Democrats in that same coup against Trump. Comey and Schumer are part of that coordinated effort. Watch for who else defends Comey and attacks Trump.

Just how dangerous is this for Trump? I have a feeling this isn’t the straw that broke the camel’s back. But, this will embolden those ruling class, the elites that are determined to subdue America, depose the Constitution, and overthrow our Republic. They will not give up…and unfortunately they will win.

Comey was the ultimate Director of the FBI, in every way a mirror image of the infamous J. Edgar Hoover. The FBI has a dark and disreputable past reaching all the way back to their founding. The FBI has been influencing, interfering with, and adversely impacting our political system since day one. The FBI is the ultimate secret police, a powerful institution that almost no one can even dream of touching let alone dismembering to save the Republic. But, Trump has put the political class, the ruling elites, and their leadership on notice that he will not go down without a fight. Unfortunately, that is exactly what Trump is going to get…and he can’t win it.

Pray for our country, pray for our Constitution, and pray for our President. We need it now more than ever.

SitRep – 5/3/2017

Dang…I just can’t keep my mouth shut. And, based on what I am seeing you might be interested in what I have to say…especially at the very end where I layout a new initiative.

Economy –

The economy still sucks! The pension plan problem continues to worsen, benefits are being reduced, taxes are being raised, and there is even some talk about special real-estate assessments to make up the pension fund shortfall in some areas. You probably heard of the Canadian housing bubble about to burst…some media outlets are talking about it potentially being worse than the US housing crisis in 2007 – 2008. Then there is the first quarter 2017 GDP, .7%. Less than one percent!!!  That is horrible…truly horrible.

You would think that with the election of Trump that the GDP would have picked up, but it hasn’t. Here is the weird part…consumer confidence picked way up…but not consumer or business spending in any marked fashion. So what is going on with that?

Here are some huge indicators that the economy could stagnate or retreat:

  • ObamaCare wasn’t repealed and TrumpCare was defeated. If TrumpCare is passed it is still a huge federal government entitlement program that will cost the government trillions of dollars that it doesn’t have.
  • The tax reform plan is stalled. There is already considerable talk that many of the reforms are dead as of now.
  • The current Continuing Resolution to continue to fund the government is a massive amount of money, well over a trillion dollars. That’s over $1,000,000,000,000 for less than 5 months of government spending. And on top of that, Trump increased the amount by $26,000,000,000 for defense and welfare programs while not cutting any spending, not defunding abortions, not funding the wall, etc.
  • Unemployment numbers are not really good. Actually since Jan 20, over 500,000 people left the workforce. And, Canadian unemployment is actually worsening as well. Yeah, tie that back to the news about the Canadian housing market about to burst.

So bottom line…the economy is still in bad shape…other than the stock market. But hey, it’s done well for about 8 years now, mostly under Obama. You gotta ask yourself why with Obama and with Trump.

Violence –

Street violence is increasing, especially on college campuses, especially in reaction to Conservative appearances. Why is it important about “college campuses”? Because all revolutions in modern history have roots on college campuses.

Trump Presidency –

Love him? Hate him? Really, it doesn’t matter a bit.

Trump has signed over 43 Executive Orders, actions, and memoranda in his first 100 days! Think about that for a minute. Now, does that make you happy? How about it that had been Obama? A President that signs that many orders that quickly should scare the ever loving crap out of you…regardless of your party affiliation. That shows a man who would rather dictate than use the Constitutional legislative process. That should be of grave concern…regardless of your political beliefs.

Misc –

Fox News, love them or hate them, has been the only large scale media voice for conservatives…and they are dying. With the change in leadership at the ownership level, the decisions have been made to move them left of center politically. While it won’t happen today or tomorrow, the change is taking place and conservatives have all but lost that media voice.

The Heritage Foundation has been a bastion of Conservatism and to a lesser degree Libertarianism.  But, that institution is undergoing a transition. Jim Demint, awesome freedom/rights advocate, is in serious trouble over there. There is a battle going on for the leadership of Heritage, and Demint is losing. If the rumors prove true, Steven Bannon (alt-right leader & Trump advisor) is poise to replace Demint…or one of Bannon’s puppets. This would be a terrible blow for conservatives, especially Tea Party Conservatives.

College campuses are shutting down conservatives and any allowance of their presence.

There is open discussion now among some left-wing politicians that the First Amendment needs to be changed to no longer allow “hate speech.” Which means…you can’t say stuff that the government doesn’t want you to. Here is the really scary part…there are some Trump folks who are advocating to impact the First Amendment to allow the President to sue critics under liable laws.

War –

It seems that the Trump administration is dead set on attacking North Korea…potentially in a more conventional strike and with ground troops. While everyone that is sane doesn’t want the DoughBoy of NK to use nukes against the US, the question has to be asked…”Why is Trump going after him now and why is Trump so intent on war?” Then a follow-up question…”What will Russia & China do if we strike NK?” But, the most important question…”What will NK do if we strike them?” I can tell you the answer to that one…it will be ugly, very ugly for South Korea. So, that naturally begs the question…”Has anyone bothered to talk with SK about this…and let it be their decision since it will be their people being slaughtered by any NK retaliation?”

And, is it really such a good idea to go after NK when they can’t even successfully launch a medium range missile? Remember, Hawaii is over 4600 miles from NK, and mainland US (Los Angeles) is  over 5800 miles. Is NK enough of an imminent threat to the USA to be openly talking war with them? I gotta wonder if that same war-mongering feeling exists among the people of South Korea. But, we keep flying all kinds of aircraft into NK airspace taunting them…just daring them to take a shot at us. What a great excuse/reason for us to go after them!

So we bombed the crap of a Syrian airbase…barely impacting their air capability. So what do they do? They move their airforce in with their close ally Russia. So, what is our next play now that we just made them even closer allies with a enemy of the US?

Just ask yourself this one simple question…Why is the US being so war-like right now and who benefits from it?

Summary –

We are in absolutely no better condition, big picture, as a country under Trump than we were with Obama. Actually, in many aspects we are in far worse condition under Trump. He has us so close to a war, a major war, that we could find ourselves in a nuclear exchange without much more political movement.

But, this isn’t about Trump, his success or failure, it is about preparedness…and you!

Many times I’ve been asked, “What can I do right now to be better prepared for what is coming?”

All too often I’ve fallen back on my basics, prepare to mitigate; violence, injury/sickness, improve communications capability, learn organization, improve water capability, improve your food storage, and ensure you have appropriate shelter. But that is no longer enough!!

Starting within 10 days I will be posting articles wherein I outline exactly step-by-step actions to take. Those actions will be designed specially to deal with where we are today…and the crap that is piling up.

Now, let me be perfectly clear about a point…I love life, I think life is great, and I want you to enjoy life and not be filled with a “doom & gloom” view or approach to life. When I refer to life being great I am referring to it on an individual level, micro-level if you will. What I am referring to when I speak of the “crap” we are in I am speaking on a national and world level, macro-level. I am not, or at least I don’t want to be, a purveyor of gloom…and certainly not doom. Life is meant to be enjoyed…and that means at the micro-level. The world right now, including the USA, is in big trouble and getting worse. We must be prepared for it!

Additional –

I am including a “Q&A” form on this SitRep and on the articles that I will be posting that I referred to above. If you have specifics that you want me to address please use the form and let me know. I am here for you…period. I want to cover those things that are important to you, not just what I think is important.
