Eight Venezuelans Electrocuted To Death While Looting Bakery Amid Massive Protests

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-04-21/eight-venezuelans-electrocuted-death-while-looting-bakery-amid-massive-protests

Venezuela's ongoing protests against the Maduro regime took tragic turn when at least 12 people were killed overnight during looting and violence in Venezuela's capital. Most of the deaths took place in El Valle, a working class neighborhood near Caracas' biggest military base where opposition leaders say a group of people were hit with an electrical current while looting and trying to steal a refrigerator from a bakery.


The chaos turned deadly when looters entered a bakery protected by an electric fence and tried to remove a refrigerator. The accounts varied, but one opposition leader said 13 people were hit with an electrical current after tossing containers filled with water and making contact with the refrigerator's power cord.

"People starting looting the businesses and yelling that they were hungry and that they want the government out," said Alvarado. "We're afraid (the stores) are going to run out of everything, that tomorrow there won't be any food."

"Yesterday around 9 or 10 (p.m.)things got pretty scary, a group of people carrying weapons came down ... and started looting," said Hane Mustafa, owner of a small supermarket in El Valle cited by Reuters, where broken bottles of soy sauce and ketchup littered the floor between bare shelves.

"The security situation is not in the hands of the government. We lost everything here," said Mustafa, who said he could hear the looting from his home, which is adjacent to the store. Dozens of businesses in the area showed signs of looting, ranging from empty shelves to broken windows and twisted metal entrance gates.

Why We Have A 2nd Amendment: Venezuela Plans To Give Firearms To Loyalists To Purge Growing Resistance

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-04-26/why-we-have-2nd-amendment-venezuela-plans-give-firearms-loyalists-purge-growing-resi

After enduring shortages of food and medicine for years, as well as a total collapse of their currency, the people of Venezuela have had enough. Last week it was estimated that 2.5 million people marched against the Maduro regime, which had previously tried to strip away the powers of the opposition-led parliament. It’s estimated that as many as 6 million people may have taken to the streets to protest throughout the country.

In the lead-up to the protest, which had been planned for weeks by opposition political parties, President Maduro issued an alarming proclamation that didn’t receive nearly enough press. He promised to expand the nation’s armed militia, and hand out firearms to as many as 400,000 loyalists.

    The Bolivarian militias, currently at approximately 100,000, were created by the late Hugo Chavez to assist the armed forces in the defense of his revolution from external and domestic attacks.

    Speaking to thousands of militia members dressed in beige uniforms gathered in front of the presidential palace, Maduro said that vision remains relevant as Venezuela continues to face “imperialist aggression.”

   
    “A gun for every militiaman!” he cried.

If you know your history of communist regimes, you understand what comes next. Maduro’s response to millions of hungry pissed off people, is to arm his die-hard supporters, who will be able to purge the starving masses that dared to cross him. They may not face much resistance, because in 2012 Venezuela banned private firearm ownership.

Venezuela has brought a new gun law into effect which bans the commercial sale of firearms and ammunition.

Venezuela saw more than 18,000 murders last year and the capital, Caracas, is thought to be one of the most dangerous cities in Latin America.

I know of some Venezuelans (my son Wes in Manhattan and other areas of NYC met lots of Venezuelans who have been here quite awhile.)
Back in Venezuela, they were wealthy, educated and decided to get the heck out while they could, with what they could!
I'm sure they had to leave some things behind to get away from the horrible socialist-fascist ruler.

Yes it is scary, creepy, and makes a person want to be as far away from stored food as possible.

"The Maduro Diet": A Photo Essay from Venezuela

http://americasquarterly.org/content/maduro-diet-photo-essay-venezuela

Shortages and a crumbling economy have forced Venezuelans to change their eating habits; many are losing weight and battling malnutrition.

Venezuela's political and economic crisis has done deep and lasting damage to its population’s health. In the past year, 74.3 percent of the population has lost weight -- an average of 8.7 kilograms (19 pounds) per person – because of food scarcity, according to a recent study by three of Caracas' largest universities (UCAB, USB and UCV) and the nonprofit Bengoa Foundation. The problem has its roots in 17 years of economic mismanagement and the gradual deterioration of Venezuela's means of producing, importing and distributing foodstuffs and other necessities. The situation has gotten so dire that Venezuelans have termed the way they've modified their eating habits the "Maduro diet.”

A boy picks up rice that fell off a truck headed to Puerto Cabello, the country's main food port.

In November, 90 percent of the population said it couldn’t afford enough to eat, according to the AP. That has led large numbers of Venezuelans to go to painful lengths to find their next meal. Residents told AP that they’ve found oats, sunflower seeds, and pig feed at a landfill in Puerto Cabello where the military gets rid of rotten food

According to a study by Cáritas, a non-profit that is working to combat malnutrition in the states of Miranda, Distrito Capital, Vargas and Zulia, the number of families that have had to adopt a survival strategy due to the food crisis increased from 77 percent in 2016 to 82 percent in the first two months of 2017.

Wall Mart Free-For-All A Taste Of Things To Come??

http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/wal-mart-free-for-all-a-taste-of-things-to-come-these-maps-show-us-american-danger-zones-when-shtf_05072017

Whether that be via total collapse, WW3 coming home to roost upon US soil or a ‘grid event’ that leaves tens to hundreds of millions either without power or access to the money in their bank accounts, the video directly below from a Wal Mart in Mexico gives us a very small taste of what that world without law and order can quickly devolve into.

Showing what happens when suddenly ‘lawless people’ realize that there aren’t enough security guards in a WalMart store to stop them, we witness the kind of all-out ‘free for all’ that we’ll likely see in a collapse event, though the smart people would be carrying out food, toilet paper and other necessities instead of flat screen TV’s. And in an all-out SHTF event, we’d expect that the people will likely be fighting with each other for the few remaining resources as they are now in Venezuela where children are literally starving to death.

Much more below including a warning from Alt Market’s Brandon Smith that ‘a full spectrum crisis is about to take place’ and more signs that what we’re witnessing in Venezuela may be coming to America. We also take a look at several different important maps which show us where we don’t want to be in full-scale SHTF but first, a Wal Mart in Mexico gives us a small glimpse of what might happen here once it all comes crashing down.

As commenters on the live leak video clearly point out, we’ve already witnessed events in America similar to what happened in the video above with packs of roving gangs showing up in malls and convenience stores ‘en masse’, taking whatever they want and parading out as if laws don’t matter to them. Knowing such events are already taking place in 2017 America, how much worse might things get when SHTF? As Susan Duclos reported this morning on ANP, parts of America are already a boiling cauldron read to boil over. How many Americans are the frogs in the simmering water?

Grisly Footage Emerges From Venezuela At The Breaking Point - Is This The Future Of America?

http://allnewspipeline.com/VZ_On_Edge_Of_Explosion_Revolution_A_Sign_To_America.php

In this story published Tuesday over at ABC News they report that more people have been killed in Venezuela and hundreds injured as chaos erupted as another round of protests took place against Nicolas Maduro's socialist government. With buildings being set on fire after what started out as a peaceful 'sit-in against the dictatorship' protests turned chaotic, nearly 2,000 people have been detained and the chaos in Venezuela shows no sign of stopping.

With many claiming the crisis in Venezuela has reached a breaking point with inflation expected to top 700% this year and political confrontations happening at a worrisome level, grisly video footage has emerged from confrontations over the past few days that show Venezuela is rapidly spiraling out of control as seen in the videos below.

And while far too many Americans will still claim what is happening in Venezuela, thousands of miles away, could never happen here, all we need to do is take a look at what is happening now in places such as Baltimore, Maryland and Chicago, Illinois and countless other big cities and small towns across America to see that it already is happening, though still on a smaller scale.

While the entire nation of Venezuela goes through the pain that comes with a collapsing socialist nation as shortages of food, medical supplies and other basic necessities become increasingly difficult to attain, the pain that millions of Americans feel is very real as according to Feeding America, back in 2015, more than 40 million Americans went hungry every day.

With experts warning US citizens to prepare for the collapse as big US cities and small US towns turn into what some believe look like 3rd world nations, we see in the videos below of what's happening in Venezuela more looks at a scenario that could soon be playing out here in America on a much larger scale than it is already with antifa protests in US streets.

As we watch the videos below, we see what's happening in Venezuela right now in the first 8 videos, some of them very difficult to watch, and then travel through time in a post-apocalyptic view of the retail industry set to unfold in a town near you in the final video below showing us what a shopping mall in Baltimore looks like right now, a taste of things to come to America.

This is quite an important article to “read and heed” ..

A Well-Known Swiss Climatologist: “I Would Advise Humanity to Devote the Last 3 Quiet Years to the Family…and Prepare!”

http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2017/07/a-well-known-swiss-climatologist-i-would-advise-humanity-to-devote-the-last-3-quiet-years-to-the-family-and-prepare-3529917.html

A scientist of world renown is known for his research related to climate models. He was one of the key members of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. At the end of 2016, I took an active part in the work of the International Group of Leading Climatologists of the World, which, together with the leading weather forecasters of the World, issued a closed report on the impending weather and climate catastrophe that will begin in 2017.

- Mr. Knutti, at the end of 2016, an international group of leading climatologists and world-famous weather forecasters in which you participated, did a great job and prepared a sensational report.
Why was it closed to the general public? What was so secret about him?

- It was not our decision. Unfortunately … I, like most of my colleagues from around the world, believed that people should know the truth .. Whatever it was. But .. You understand that those who are at the top, their plans and views on everything and everyone, and that they measure the truth that can be given to people.

This applies to all aspects of life. Of course, their attitude to this issue is very strange. I think this is a huge stupidity. They think that they are above nature, above processes that are already in full swing, and that they will be able to control and regulate them. They think that the elect can survive these processes, sit out hiding in comfort, and the rest of humanity they do not care. But this is not so. What has already begun will affect all countries and all! But they do not understand this or do not want to understand it.

 They are afraid either of panic or of the fact that people will start demanding that their governments start taking measures to prepare themselves for the meeting of the horror and chaos that have already begun to approach (and in some countries they have already been felt in recent months) rather than feeding them Positive for the future. Once again, the decision to close our report to the broad masses was taken at the very top.

- So you want to say that something is threatening humanity?”

- Threatening? (Bitter laughter). No. THIS HAS ALREADY STARTED !!! And this can not be stopped !! Look at what’s going on with the weather this year. In all countries … We warned about this in our report at the end of last year. Our model of future weather events by 80% coincided with those events that are now happening in the world. I’m even scared of this. After all, if our report were not classified to the public and the governments of those countries where people died and died this year from abnormal weather conditions, prepared for these cataclysms, many victims could be avoided. It’s bitter and scary.

“Why wait?” (Again smiles sadly) Do you have another three years of quiet life, you live in Switzerland? If you lived in America, China, India, Europe or Russia, then for you and these would not have been three years. And so…Devote these years to your family and try to prepare. Do not make plans to buy a new fashionable car or promotion. Think about something else. How to preserve your life and the lives of your relatives in the new conditions that have already come into our lives with new abnormal and extraordinary weather conditions. Try to just survive in the coming years.

Max.

How those “nice people next door” will be transformed when the lights go out ..

"There Is A Dark Side To Our Species" This Is What People Fear The Most In A Societal Collapse...

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-07-10/there-dark-side-our-species-what-people-fear-most-societal-collapse

There are a lot of reasons why people prep for disasters, but there’s one reason that’s far more popular than the others. What people fear most when they think about what would happen if society collapsed, isn’t hunger, disease, or exposure. They fear what other people might do to them when the chips are down. They worry that members of their community might hurt or kill them to survive.

And though most preppers won’t admit it, I think most of us fear what we might be capable of in a bad situation. We don’t have to find out if we have enough food stocked up in our pantries.

But on the rare occasion that a disaster disrupts the flow of goods and energy for months or years at a time, a significant percentage of the population will turn on their neighbors to survive. There’s a direct relationship between how desperate people are, and how far they’re willing to abandon their morality to keep themselves and their family fed, and that’s something that preppers should never forget.

Meanwhile In Venezuela, The Real Mad Max Emerges!  :-[

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-07-11/meanwhile-venezuela-real-mad-max-emerges

While Silicon Valley seems obsessed by 'blood boys', its another part of the world that appears to have gone full Mad Max. As the following clip shows a gang of bikers chase down and attack a truck (with molotov cocktails) to steal its sugar payload…

With each passing week, the situation in Venezuela keeps on getting worse.

This is _really_ creepy!

DHS Outlines Mandatory Biometric ID at Airports for Foreign Travel!

http://www.blacklistednews.com/DHS_Outlines_Mandatory_Biometric_ID_at_Airports_for_Foreign_Travel/59693/0/38/38/Y/M.html

However, these stories were nothing compared to what followed on June 20th when U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced that they would integrate government databases with a private company to speed up biometric processing.

    JetBlue is working with U.S. Customs and Border Protection and SITA, an information-technology provider for airlines.
    …

    “This is the first integration of biometric authorization by the CBP with an airline and may prove to be a solution that will be quick and easy to roll out across U.S. airports,” Jim Peters, SITA’s chief technology officer, said in the statement. (emphasis added)

With that as the backdrop, if one weren’t already alarmed by this trend, DHS is now laying out a clear plan for mandatory face scans for all travelers to foreign destinations, stating that “the only way for an individual to ensure he or she is not subject to collection of biometric information when traveling internationally is to refrain from traveling.” That’s right, no opt-out, just stay home. :(

If you are not in a safe place, you probably need to get out... NOW!
I have predicted it for years: when the end is near, international travel will be one of the first privileges [there are no 'rights'; that's just a scam] to go.
Closing down boarders, airports and seaports is a piece of cake to TPTB. Make sure you have a clear way to your survival destination or there will be no way to your survival destination...
