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.

"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.

"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.

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. :(

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...

Wisconsin Company To Implant Microchips In Employees
Published: July 22, 2017

http://www.blacklistednews.com/Wisconsin_Company_To_Implant_Microchips_In_Employees/59879/0/38/38/Y/M.html

"It's the next thing that's inevitably going to happen, and we want to be a part of it," Three Square Market Chief Executive Officer Todd Westby said.

The company designs software for break room markets that are commonly found in office complexes.

Just as people are able to purchase items at the market using phones, Westby wants to do the sam thing using a microchip implanted inside a person's hand.

"We'll come up, scan the item," he explained, while showing how the process will work at an actual break room market kiosk. "We'll hit pay with a credit card, and it's asking to swipe my proximity payment now. I'll hold my hand up, just like my cell phone, and it'll pay for my product. (Can anyone just say 666)"

More than 50 Three Square Market employees are having the devices implanted starting next week. Each chip is about the size of a single grain of rice.

It's difficult to say how one of us might respond to such oppression if in their shoes, what with strong cultural and familial ties there, especially with the merciless capital punishments being inflicted by TPTB on protesters.  In Venezuela, more than half of the population is Mestizo, or a mixture of Spanish, Amerindian and African. Those not already experiencing muscle wasting from starvation could try and relocate within the closed borders, following their heritage either to the warmer Amazon or the colder Andean climate.  My guess is that the Andes would offer more safety.  Either would potentially offer a way across the closed borders.  The lesson learned from the von Trapps and others in WWII Europe is not to hesitate to leave, even if the way out is difficult terrain.

I know dark clouds will gather o'er me.
I know the way is rough and steep.
But beauteous fields lie just before me,
Where God's redeemed their vigils keep.

Good article ..

The Four Waves of Food and Shelter Seekers After TEOTWAWKI Will Be Both Heart-Rending And Dangerous—

http://www.survivaldan101.com/food-shelter-teotwawki/

Shortly after some type of disaster (TEOTWAWKI )that disrupts the normal flow of food and energy into your nearby towns, people will be forced to leave their residences and fan out into the countryside, foraging for food (and subsequently shelter too).  That is obvious – if there is no food in the town/city, people can either stay where they are and die of thirst or starvation, or they can pro-actively start looking for food.

People will initially look for food on one of two different levels.  The first level is ‘looking for food nearby and returning back to one’s normal home to eat it and continue living’.  The second level is ‘abandoning one’s former residence and moving, as a refugee, towards wherever the possibility of ongoing survival may be greatest’.  A third and fourth type of food seeking will develop later into a crisis.

It is helpful to understand the differing types of contacts you’ll have, because each poses different challenges, problems, threats, and even opportunities, calling for different responses on your part.

And while we consider our four different waves to be more or less chronologically sequential, there will be some overlaps, with some people representing some waves either earlier than most others, or later than most others.

The First Wave

The first wave will start shortly after the social disruption occurs, initially as a trickle, and then successively greater and greater as more and more people run out of food and come to realize that the government won’t magically solve the problem that occurred.


The Second Wave

As the first wave ends and is replaced by the second wave, people’s attitudes will be hardening, because their ability to travel far and wide is massively reduced.  They have probably used up most of their emergency food stores, and now, limited primarily by their ability to walk, any source of food becomes one they must take full advantage of.  They can no longer afford the luxury of leaving empty-handed, and their lack of mobility now reduces the number of places they can travel to in search of food.  They have to make the best of every possible opportunity.

The grim reality of the ‘eat or be eaten’ concept will also be one which the survivors can no longer ignore.

If these people come to your retreat, they are likely to be a stronger and more determined adversary than people in the first wave (and people in the second wave could well be the same people who visited more peaceably in the first wave, too).


Fortunately, most of these people in the second wave will still be nomadic and itinerant.  They’ll be traveling in the hope of finding a Shangri-La somewhere that is full of food, energy, and welcoming people keen to help them, and probably won’t yet be in the ‘looking for anywhere to settle’ mode that will come later.  They might hope for overnight shelter, but they’re not yet looking for a place to settle – or, if they are, they’re probably not yet realistic enough to appreciate the value of your retreat.

The Third Wave

The third wave will be refugees, the same as the second wave, but this time it will be people looking for somewhere to settle.

These will be people who are becoming more realistic in their expectations, and now rather than mindlessly going anywhere in the hope of finding (nonexistent) salvation, they are now looking for somewhere they can settle and survive for the medium or longer term.

The Fourth Wave

The fourth wave is very different from the other three.  It is longer lasting and more potentially impactful on your retreat and community.

Sean Hannity Tweets Hint At Something HUGE On The Horizon: 'Tick Tock Tick Tock' - What Does He Know That We Don't Know?

http://allnewspipeline.com/BETA_Test_To_Bring_Down_Truth.php


Independent Media Under All-Out Attack As Left Seeks To 'Silence All Opposing Voices’


Over the past two days, Fox News' Sean Hannity has put out a series of tweets on twitter that deserve examining considering everything else we're now witnessing in America. The first tweet put out Monday morning seen in the 1st screenshot below was quite simple but pounded home not only mystery but meaning: "Tick tock tick tock".

What does Sean Hannity know that we don't know?

The 2nd tweet Hannity put out several times, clearly emphasizing the importance of it, while tagging @georgesoros and calling the document he linked to a 'must read'

And as we detail within this story on ANP, we're getting more and more evidence that we are approaching a 'do or die' moment in America as 'enemies of America within' seek to silence all 'dissent' to their 'way of thinking', highlighted by their rapid descent into madness.

Government Asks Funeral Homes To Prepare For Pandemic While Warning Of Possible 'Nightmare Scenario'

http://allnewspipeline.com/Pandemic_Third_Witness_Black_Death.php

n the August 7th story over at The Star titled 'Funeral Homes Warned To Be Prepared In Advance Of Possible Pandemic' they report 'a pandemic might not be a problem in some communities, but funeral homes in larger cities may not be able to cope with the increased demand'.  Also warning within their story 'in a pandemic, each individual funeral home could expect to handle about six months’ work within a six- to eight-week period', the Star story was one of at least three that just came out over the last few days from different news websites in Canada covering this exact same topic.

Also reporting that in some cases should the pandemic outbreak get bad enough, ice skating rinks might have to be converted into massive morgues to hold all of the bodies and refrigerated trucks, normally used used to transport ice cream and other cold foods, might have to be used to transport bodies, we found it strange that several different outlets are now running very similar stories.
[/i]
According to this recent story over at the Telegraph Journal (saved on Archive.is, simply scroll down past 'welcome' message for story), in extreme cases, there are other options they would have to consider to keep up with the number of bodies coming in. 

The third story was published August 8th and comes to us from Global News which reports that according to volunteer grave diggers, the Canadian government is asking funeral homes to prep for a pandemic. Do they know something that we don't know or is this all just good, smart preparation for something that will eventually come, though it may be years away

Possibly not coincidentally, back on July 31st, the NY Times published a story titled "Only Six Nations Have Evaluated Readiness For Global Pandemic" (linked via archive.is) while back on July 13th, Gov Tech's Emergency Management published a story titled "A Flu Pandemic Is Coming, But When, And How Bad Will It Be?"

Hunger eats away at Venezuela’s soul as its people struggle to survive

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/aug/26/nicolas-maduro-donald-trump-venezuela-hunger

Hunger is gnawing at Venezuela, where a government that claims to rule for the poorest has left most of its 31 million people short of food, many desperately so. As night falls over Caracas, and most of the city’s residents lock their doors against its ever more violent streets, Adriana Velásquez gets ready for work, heading out into an uncertain darkness as she has done since hunger forced her into the only job she could find at 14.

Nearly three-quarters of Venezuelans have lost weight over the past year, and the average loss was a huge 9kg, or nearly a stone and a half, according to a survey by the country’s top universities. For many that is simply because food is too expensive. Nine out of 10 homes can’t cover the cost of what they should eat.

And 10 million people skip at least one meal a day, often to help feed their children.


“I had seen people suffering, I saw people queueing for bread, but it had not reached me, I didn’t expect it would,” he said. “Never in my life had I spent a night worrying about what I would eat tomorrow.”

Domestic Foreign Troop Activity From Coast to Coast: FEMA Behaving Strangely..

http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2017/08/29/domestic-foreign-troop-activity-from-coast-to-coast-fema-behaving-strangely/

The above photo was taken by Joel S. in Pennsylvania. This is one of several NATO helicopters operating in the same area where I reported UN activity four months ago. It has been quiet in this area until the emergence of Hurricane Harvey.

UN Activity in California

In the past four months, I have received numerous reports from people in California regarding their sighting of UN personnel and vehicles in California.


Additionally, Paul Martin is good friends with RBN talk show host, ex-Green Beret, John Moore. Moore had a relative that was buying a puppy in the Seattle area. When the relative went to get the dog, they asked the resident what they did for a living and the female resident answered “I am a UN Peacekeeper”.

Here is another email I received from the potentially impacted area if the Oroville Dam were to fail as many are predicting will happen in the upcoming spring run off.

Hi Dave, I was just watching your UN bit….
In any case, I live in Stockton CA and with the shows I’ve been watching I got curious about our Port of Stockton since it’s a gate way for imports and exports.
I have a former Security officer that worked for me so I decided to give her a buzz to see what, if anything was happening. Especially since I hear choppers flying over head every night about 2-3 in the morning.
And by the way, the Ports MERSEC…Maritime Security is at level 1,  meaning security is to be present at all times.
Any way, the only thing she knew was that the choppers for the National Guard and Fire Department are having rescue drills. Hmmmm. I wonder….

FEMA Camps In Costal Cities On January 12,2017-Before Hurrican Harvey

I was sent this Youtube video that was made 8 months prior to Hurricane Harvey.

“Never let a good crisis go to waste.”

I previously wrote an article in response to the intention of Congress to permit the military to indefinitely detain, without due process protections, American citizens for any reason, or for no reason whatsoever. In the previous article, I referenced the leaked memo from KBR manager, Bob Siefert, which was informing subcontractors to be prepared within 72 hours of notification to provide essential services to FEMA camps such as the installation of barbwire, blockades, personnel, food, water and sanitation services. Subsequently, one of my readers, Richard Firth, bravely took the initiative to write to Siefert and asked him to explain his stated intentions in the leaked memo.

Green Beret Warns: “Skepticism Will Vanish When The Power Suddenly Fails Across the United States”

http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/green-beret-warns-skepticism-will-vanish-when-the-power-suddenly-fails-across-the-united-states_09042017

It should be obvious, now, even to the most vocal and acetic naysayers that no matter how much they try to declare that nothing will happen regarding North Korea, they’re wrong.  It is happening, as we speak, and the buildup reached a high octave with North Korea’s sixth nuclear detonation, one that experts are saying was between 100 to 120 kilotons.  This detonation occurred in North Korea’s test facility on Sunday, and North Korean news stated that it was a hydrogen bomb.

Skepticism will vanish when the power suddenly fails across the United States.  The North Koreans can reach the U.S. mainland with a missile, and it will survive reentry.  They can do this, and they will…only it will not come in the form of air-raid sirens blaring and people scurrying to the basements of buildings (as Fallout Shelters don’t exist anymore).  Here is the form that it will take. This is the real “kicker” that was just released Sunday by North Korea’s state-run news agency, reported on Daily Mail and if falls in line with the items just mentioned:

    “North Korea’s state news agency warned that the weapon ‘is a multifunctional thermonuclear nuke with great destructive power which can be detonated even at high altitudes for super-powerful EMP attack.”

Surviving a Mad Max World: How To Avoid Marauders and Looters After the Collapse

http://readynutrition.com/resources/surviving-a-mad-max-world-how-to-avoid-marauders-and-looters-after-the-collapse_12012018/#new_tab


A mad max scenario is one of the worst-case scenarios one can prepare for. The adage “if you can’t protect you don’t own it” rings true in this case. Long-term survival plans that reflect this type of disaster suggest preppers getting away from urban and suburban living and heading for hills. While this would be the safest option, there are dangers that lurk for those who plan to “live off the land.” Because in a post-collapse world – they will come for all that you own

But have you considered it all?  Really considered it?

The land: to blend with it, and to live with it without being obtrusive is the key to avoiding the hunters…and remember that they have the same limitations as you.  The more pure and “clear” you keep your senses, the better they’ll work for you.  We have done some pieces on the way the eye works, and the sense of smell.  This is the time to do your work…your training to use these senses to their maximum capabilities.  Let’s cover some basics as to what to expect when you’re living with the land and avoiding marauders, foreign soldiers, forces of a dictatorial government, and so forth.

From "Dark Cabal Launches Nuclear Missile At Hawaii - Alliance Stops Attack - January 13, 2017"  at http://www.ascensionwithearth.com/2018/01/dark-cabal-launches-nuclear-missile-at.html
[start excerpt - reformatted]
*  Yesterday, Jan. 12, an anomaly was detected off the coast of Hawaii which held off the RV release.
*  Today, Jan. 13, the cabal attempted to nuke the Hawaiian islands and put the blame on North Korea.
*  (Sources have confirmed that the false alarm today in Hawaii was a cover story. The attack was real. The media had their "North Korea Attacks the Hawaiian Islands" story preemptively ready. The cabal panicked when the attack failed. A cover story was shortly made up and the attack was branded as a false alarm. The Emergency Broadcast System does not lie. Someone pressing the "wrong button" simply does not happen. This was another cabal attempt to derail the transition process by fabricating a war.)
*  Missile launches were detected in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Hawaii.
*  The launches originated from the same anomaly detected yesterday, Jan. 12.
*  The missiles were immediately intercepted and destroyed.
*  The anomaly was revealed to be a nuclear stealth submarine.
*  The nuclear stealth submarine was located and destroyed shortly after the attempted attack.
*  Planetary scans did not detect any anomalies two days ago on the 11th.
*  The Alliance believes the submarine originated from another D.U.M.B. located somewhere in the Pacific.
*  The Alliance is now actively searching for said D.U.M.B.  [Deep Underground Military Base]

Title: Re: A Look Into Our Future / 2018 flu epidemic
Post by: R.R. Book on January 15, 2018, 07:48:16 AM
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGeRCphRXkI

This film, posted yesterday, says that Alabama has declared a state of emergency, saying that a bio-agent or type of flu has killed 85 people, including 20 children so far, and this is early in the epidemic.  Narrator says that Arizona is about to declare likewise, due to having no empty hospital beds remaining.

Other states currently affected: Oregon, Washington, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia, South Carolina, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and New York City.

Unaffected states so far: Alaska, Hawaii, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Tennessee, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and New York State apart from the metropolis.

Advice from the film:
Don't get a flu shot.

Get plenty of rest.

Avoid large crowds.

Wash hands frequently for 30 seconds.

Don't share eating utensils.

Limit handshaking.

Mega-dose on vitamin C (which means a gram or more).

I might add:

Vitamin D can remain stored in the body a maximum of 2 months.  One reason that the flu season hits so hard in mid- to late winter is that it has been much longer than 2 months since our bare skin was last exposed to peak sunlight. 

Some health advisory bodies in the U.S. are in disagreement about the upper limit for daily intake.  Until not many years ago, the daily allowance was established at 400 units.  Now the Food and Nutrition board has raised that to 4000 units, a tenfold increase, and further states that 10,000 units per day is not toxic.  Ten minutes of bare skin in peak sunlight produces 10,000 units, so half an hour in the summer sun produces far more vitamin D than even that.  So in theory even the 10,000 unit upper limit is very conservative, and some take a higher dose at least once a month or so.  At any sign of flu, it might be a good idea to take at least 10,000 units.  https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/what-is-the-upper-limit-and-noael-and-are-they-justified/ 

Also, as we have discussed in another thread, NIH studies now show that even the slightest sore throat can be attributed to at least a temporary B vitamin deficiency (especially B-2 and B-6), and it might be wise to keep B-100 complex on hand especially during flu season.  http://planetxtownhall.com/index.php?topic=4544.msg98742#msg98742

Lastly, bearing in mind that all viruses replicate themselves by using our own amino acids (basic units of protein) against us, it makes sense to supplement with high-dose proteolytic enzymes such as ViraStop.  Look for 100,000 HUT or higher, rather than doses measured in milligrams.  Will repost this list of high-dose proteolytic enzymes available on the market, posted recently on the Alzheimer's thread (and might be added to any general cancer thread):

Quote
    It's important to know if you're getting enough total proteolytic enzymes both to digest food and to break down proteins - need a surplus to do both.  The John Barron Report recommends at least 200,000 HUT's per capsule, preferably 300,000.  He further recommends that they be of plant / fungal origin. https://jonbarron.org/article/proteolytic-enzyme-formula

    There are only a couple of formulas on the market that meet or exceed this on a per capsule basis, when all the pertinent line items are added up.  Most don't even have 100,000 HUT's.  The ones that do are, in order:

    Transformation Protease, 375,000 HUT's per capsule
    Enzymedica, Enzyme Defense, Extra Strength (formerly ViraStop 2X), 300,000 HUT's per capsule
    Transformation PureZyme, 185,000 HUT's per capsule
    Enzymedica Enzyme Defense (formerly regular strength ViraStop) 150,000 HUT's per capsule
    Renew Life Digest Smart Senior Care 133,900 HUT's
    Renew Life, Extra Care Digest Smart 122,500 HUT's
    Garden of Life Raw Enzymes for women 50+  116,630 HUT's per capsule
    Garden of Life Raw Enzymes for men 50+ 116,630 HUT's per capsule
    Garden of Life Raw Enzymes for women, 108,500 HUT's per capsule

Dr. Albers collates recent data on the many countries suddenly launching rockets with alleged satellite payloads into space, and speculates that they may be studying a potential war taking place in space. 

Her reasoning:
1. Government agencies of the world, which are capable of launching state-of-the-art craft, have inexplicably reverted to utilizing outdated legacy equipment.  Dr. Albers speculates that earth's most cutting edge technology may be on the radar of visiting ET's  and targeted as being contraband.

2. These agencies all claim to be launching large numbers of satellites, meaning that they want to observe something.  She feels that the Px system is likely not the observational target, as bodies from this system have been around for a long time now and already well-observed using existing equipment.

3. A large number of inexplicable explosions have been happening in our atmosphere, not attributable to plasma discharges from Px because many of them do not produce the expected power blackouts.

Around 37 minutes into the video, Wayne Steiger postulates that our electronic devices may be studying us and feeding the data into a central database.  We've probably all heard of companies that exist now to protect us from identity theft involving numbers / digits.  Wayne wonders whether the threat is now far more advanced than that, and that it may involve theft of our own DNA.  He suggests this rationale:

1. Our DNA exists even in shed skin cells that would barely be detectable to us.

2. Many of our electronic devices are hand-held.

3. In using these devices, our shed skin cells are coming off on them, and there may be DNA readers installed in them that could quickly map our genomes and send them to a centralized database.

4. Once someone has this information about us, they would have the capability of creating a bio-weapon tailor made to us, or a group of us who share DNA characteristics.

5. He further says not to expect that when we turn our devices off, they remain off. 

6. Our devices may be listening to us and recording our conversations.

7. Our devices may also be collecting data on every member of the family.

Somewhere I read that virtually all of the home security services are serving dual purpose--also picking up every conversation, and possibly even hidden cameras, all supposedly for the purpose of thwarthing burglaries.

Also, all the drug testing done on urine for prospective, or current, employees, is just a cover for stealing everyone's DNA.  Supposedly it's the DNA they really want, and it sounds so benign to work toward a drug-free workplace.  Har dee har har

We may be entering a dangerous period of time in which electromagnetic interference with passenger aircraft may be occurring.  This film, published this morning, says that last night the Australian Transportation Safety Bureau opened an investigation into a passenger flight from Sydney to Kuala Lumpur that suddenly lost power to its engines.  Passenger accounts of the event said that the crew of the plane was silent for a quarter hour, and then instructed passengers to brace themselves for an impact.  A loud noise was heard overhead (electrostatic interference?), followed by violent shaking of the plane.  The flight was able to turn back and land safely in Alice Springs without crashing.  Some of the passengers demanded a refund from the airline.

Narrator, a veteran Croation Px researcher and videographer who speaks English as a second language, maps the incident and then uses astronomic software to document both that Nibiru was orbiting past the area of the incident at the time, and that the moon was in an unusual alignment with it. 

Questions arise from this:

1. If narrator was able to document a flyby using freely available astronomic software, then why don't airline flight controllers do the same?  Are they completely in ignorance about what is occurring in our skies?  If so, then for how much longer?

2. We have discussed in the recent past that visiting orbs cannot collide with or touch the earth due to electrostatic repulsion, which would be evidenced by plasmatic discharges similar to lightning but perhaps larger and more violent.  Is it possible that the electromagnetic fields of orbs that are interfering with aircraft may be just a slight distance away, in inner-space terms, from entering this repulsion zone?

3. If these incidents can be expected to continue, and possibly to become more numerous in the near future, will airlines begin failing economically due to :

          *demands by passengers for refunds, as occurred with this Australian flight?

          *more frequent or total cancellation of flights?

          *a refusal on the part of the public to fly?

          *an overall increase in safety incidents (read crashes or near crashes) leading to government sanctions?

Time to begin sticking more closely to home?

Same Croatian narrator demonstrates that chemtrailing of our skies is not a phenomenon restricted to the U.S.  He focuses upon an unmarked aircraft with tubes emitting chemtrails over Croatia @ around 13 minutes.

@ 17:30 he further documents recent winds in Germany with speeds of 200 km/h (127 mph), showing a film clip of a strong young man being blown for 30 meters across a public plaza.  For comparison, the highest wind speeds of a winter Nor'easter in the States has been 93 mph or 150 kph.  Narrator again documents Nibiru's orbital position over Germany at the time, commenting that these superstorm cells will begin feeding additional superstorms in a chain reaction in the months to come. 

He further states that Nibiru may be depleting our atmosphere of oxygen, which has been documented by other observers using scientific instrumentation, and warns to expect oxygen-deprivation symptoms such as exhaustion and mental fog.  Most startling, the narrator also posits that ET's who are not at home in an oxygen rich environment may be deliberately depleting our atmosphere of oxygen for their own comfort and ability to survive on earth (in lieu of us?).

Lastly, the narrator warns travelers not to visit Germany right now due to the possibility of civil war breaking out there due to tensions between eastern and western territories (there go our happy memories of the wall coming down in '89)...

Interesting idea about Nibiru depleting atmospheric O2.  Only two measure come to mind at present:  house plants that produce the most O2 compared to other house plants, may be a good addition to one's household, and another:  several herbal remedies are known to increase oxygenation of the blood.  One of these is the mushroom Cordyceps, which ramps up red blood cell production, and thereby elevates blood oxygen levels.   The tidbit about Cordyceps comes from the Truth About Cancer series, where they discuss herbs that help during healing.

We have lots to think about now, and fortunately researchers are popping up all over the globe.  Is there a Global PX-Research Network?

Both good to know - Thanks Ilinda!  It has occurred to me in the past that having a live Christmas tree indoors may have helped to purify the air in our house for a month or so each winter, and I do  notice that if anyone in the family comes down with flu, it generally is once we've removed and composted the tree (mid-January).

This may have been mentioned, but a woman tourist in Mexico was swept out to sea, and after about an hour, she managed to get to a sandbar about 1 mile or so away.  She had mentioned how she was only in ankle deep water and didn't expect any such rogue wave, as there had been no earlier storm.

That was a very informative link Ilinda, with shots of two opposite phenomena occurring in different spots along the coast of S.

Just think--we're probably seeing only the beginning.  In fact, two neighbor children visited the Caribbean when they were about 10 and 12 (now are 19 and 21) and they told us excitedly about a really scary "wave" that suddenly appeared out of nowhere.

They said they were just splashing and swimming in the water along the beach in rather shallow water, neither being a strong swimmer, when suddenly a huge and powerful wave came out of nowhere and carried them out quite a way from the beach.  They began screaming and flailing and eventually did get back to shore, and I remember at the time wondering just how big was the wave, and were they exaggerating, but still they seemed so anxious just re-telling it, so did believe it was a much larger than normal wave.

So, I imagine that time period, perhaps 10 years ago, "it" was only beginning, but now "it" is much worse, and the rogue waves are taller, more powerful, and last longer.  Interestingly in that one post, it said the thing that distinguishes a tsunami is that it is preceded by an earthquake of at least 7.0 Richter.   I had never heard that.  So, no matter how huge the "rogue wave", I suppose it's still a rogue wave as long as it's not preceded by such a quake.
Title: Re: A Look Into Our Future
Post by: R.R. Book on January 24, 2018, 04:42:21 AM
That is an interesting semantical distinction, and as we noted about the Alaskan quake, it was preceded by "rogue waves" instead of triggering post-quake tsunami waves.  So one way or another, a tall wave could be an important seismic indicator.

Your story of the young boys caught in the wave reminded me of when we first moved to the East and visited Ocean City, Maryland where there is an amusement park on the boardwalk. It's normally a festive atmosphere there, but a young boy about the same age that you mentioned had been caught in the  undertow, and the water was being dragged for his body.  I can't even think of Ocean City now without remembering that sad incident.

While we have reported on previous incidents of looting, analysts are starting to fear that the current wave could linger amid the Venezuela’s economic freefall into a Mad-Max-like dystopia - very different from the promised-land of socialist utopian success promised by Bernie Sanders and his Latin American predecessors.

It is clear that amid desperate food shortages Venezuelans are picking up new survival skills.

SELCO: The Brutal Truth About Violence When the SHTF

https://www.theorganicprepper.com/selco-truth-violence-shtf/

Are you prepared for the extreme violence that is likely to come your way if the SHTF? No matter what your plan is, it’s entirely probable that at some point, you’ll be the victim of violence or have to perpetrate violence to survive. As always, Selco is our go-to guy on SHTF reality checks and this thought-provoking interview will shake you to your core.

If you don’t know Selco, he’s from Bosnia and he lived through a year in a city that was blockaded with no utilities, no deliveries of supplies, and no services. In his interviews, he shares what the scenarios the rest of us theorize about were REALLY like.  He mentioned to me recently that most folks aren’t prepared for the violence that is part and parcel of a collapse, which brings us to today’s interview.

A typical defense weapons for when guns and bows are confiscated or banned

http://bugout.news/2018-01-30-atypical-defense-weapons-for-when-guns-and-bows-are-confiscated-or-banned.html

And without guns for self-defense, how is one supposed to protect oneself?

The website Survivopedia.com published an article answering that very question, going into detail on how you can still defend yourself if firearms, for whatever reason, are not an option. Edged weapons, like knives and swords, should be one of the first weapons you consider using due to the fact that they are both highly effective and can be made from a wide variety of material, including flint, obsidian, bronze, arsenic copper-bronze, tin-bronze, and iron. As far as steel is concerned, there are three types that you might consider taking advantage of. The first is Damascus steel, which has roots that date back to the 5th century BC and produces quality blades through a process of heating, hammering, and cooling. Carbon steel is another option, which can be a good choice but will rust if exposed to air and moisture. Finally, you can look into stainless steel, which is extremely durable and comes in many grades and finishes.

Edged tools that can be used as weapons in the event that firearms are not an option include farm tools, bayonets, daggers, small knives, swords, spears, throwing stars, and axes or hatchets.

@ 23:50, Narrator comes to the topic of the the Russian Saratov Airlines plane that crashed shortly after takeoff yesterday afternoon, killing all 71 passengers and crew aboard with no clear reason given by MSM.  The young 7-year-old plane ignited in the air before crashing.  Documentation is presented suggesting that a Px body, which this narrator regards as synonymous with the PanSTARRS Comet C/2014 Q6, was passing in the same area as the plane at the time.  Immediately prior, the same comet had just crossed the perpendicular orbit of what he considers to be Nibiru (Catalina C/2013 US10), perhaps increasing the electrostatic discharge of the PanSTARRS comet that intersected with the plane a short time later. 

He postulates a direct plasmatic hit this time, as opposed to the situation with the recent passenger plane in Australia which was not directly hit and was able to turn back.  See previous post here: http://planetxtownhall.com/index.php?topic=97.msg101499#msg101499

An interesting website that provides details of such incidents, in sequence of how they were documented is here: http://www.firstpost.com/world/russia-plane-crash-live-updates-saratov-airlines-flight-an-148-crashes-near-moscow-71-confirmed-dead-4346257.html
One interesting fact documented by the site is that all radio contact with the airport was lost just before the explosion, suggesting electromagnetic interference, and seemingly validating Narrator's theory.

Screenshot #1 below shows the sudden dogleg turn to the left as the plane went off-course toward the comet.  Screetshot #2 shows "Nibiru's" horizontal trajectory, the PanSTARRS comet's vertical trajectory, the point of crossing of the two comets, and then the blue dot toward the top of the diagram representing the plane at the point of intersection with the PanSTARRS comet.

Kerry Cassidy interviews Simon Parkes who talks about AI, Norwegians as guinea pigs with 5G, etc.  There is so much covered in this interview, and one thing which struck me was the reference to the installation of 5G system in Norway, essentially making Norwegians guinea pigs for such highly potent and dangerous "waves".  Even if some do not use cell phones, there are probably enough towers to achieve full coverage of the entire country.

Also another oddity he mentioned related to AI, when he mentioned something to the effect that all the cryptocurrencies are somehow tied to AI, and that without these crypto currencies, AI won't be as successful (in assimilating us all).

The use of cell towers in that manner reminds me so much of a possibly prophetic science fiction series that I read as a kid - do you remember the White Mountains trilogy, a.k.a. The Tripods, by author John Christopher?  The three books were The White Mountains, The City of Gold and Lead, and The Pool of Fire.  It was about an invasion of earth by silver metallic beings roughly equivalent in appearance and size to cell towers, but with a few long legs like water towers (they were mobile), who imposed mind control on people as they reached adolescence by "capping" them with metal caps which acted as enforcers of the alien rule.  It's a fascinating journey about how a very few youngsters remained able to think for themselves still, and managed in the end to overthrow the controllers.

UK and Europe to be plunged into it's coldest period for years as a dominant high-pressure system brings in frigid Arctic air from Syberia

http://www.thebigwobble.org/2018/02/uk-and-europe-to-be-plunged-into-its.html

A dominant high-pressure system is developing over northwestern Europe and is set to plunge the area into Arctic type conditions for the next ten days at least.
Western Europe and the UK will suffer their coldest period of the winter with many countries having to endure their coldest spell in years.

According to the Met Office, cold air will spread from Syberia carried from the jet stream towards the UK and western Europe.
Normally the jet stream this time of the year meanders across the Atlantic bringing cloudy, rain and mild weather, however later in the week the jet stream will take on an unusual path coming in from the northeast bringing in Arctic temperatures

By Monday it will turn very cold more widely and this will probably be the start of the coldest spell of the winter.

Many places will remain dry into the start of next week, but snow showers are expected to develop in some places, particularly across eastern and southern England.

The cold easterly wind will persist bringing a significant wind chill which will make it feel several degrees colder than thermometers indicate.

The high pressure over Scandinavia bringing the cold easterly flow is expected to remain in place for several days and there are signs that the cold spell in the UK and parts of Europe is likely to last well into next week and perhaps into the following week.
Indeed, there is potential for this cold spell to be the coldest for several years in parts of the UK and Europe”.

Am still reluctantly shopping for certain items at Walmart that are difficult to source anywhere else, though I've pledged to wean myself off of them.

Anyway, a large number of candles, in a popular well-priced but generous size, have been recalled by the manufacturer and pulled from the shelves to be sent back.  One of the store managers said there is nothing wrong with the candles, but there is a clause in their contract with the manufacturer which allows them to repossess the merchandise at-will.  Strange clause if you ask me...

Am trying to think of reasons why the manufacturer would cause Walmart to lose out on sales of this popular item, and the only reason that I can imagine is that someone else offered them a better price for a huge bulk supply...which leads me to suspect PTB may be getting ready to go into their hidey holes and want their hoards there ahead of them.  ::)

We Never Could Have Imagined (or Prepped For) What Actually Happened in Venezuela

http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/we-never-could-have-imagined-or-prepped-for-what-actually-happened-in-venezuela_03092018

Can we prepare for everything?

We never could have imagined…or prepped for…what happened in Venezuela.

In this article, I wanted to analyze my preps, and the nature of the apocalypse we have been forced to face. I don’t know about you, but anything that kicks you out of your place, of your warm bed, your pets, kids, wife, and the rest of your family, for me does not have another better word to describe it.

My comfort bubble was destroyed, my work of an entire life was thrown out by the window, my family insurance full coverage policy is gone with the wind (although with no medications to be had and doctors running away to Argentina and Colombia, it’s not like it was very useful though), and the few preps I had for 4 or 5 months are history now. Of course, they worked pretty well, and we stretched it a little bit, but once the system collapsed, there is nothing else we can do but close the place and bug out to some other place where we can at least buy food.

What happened was something entirely different from what we had prepared for.

I guess that what I mean is, that, within our means, we prepared more or less adequately, but what really happened was something entirely different that we had not prepared for.

We prepared for some of the consequences of turmoil, unrest, riots, crime. We were able to hunker down for a while and able to defend ourselves silently and seriously, without having to leave our haven. The scarcity problems started back there around 2013-2014. Those years were the last time I remember we could buy large amounts of wheat flour, corn flour for arepas (yes, those yellow packages you see people fist fighting each other for on the web), pasta, powdered and UHT packaged milk, rice, and other staples.

Max, with so many agricultural disruptions recently and on the horizon, I'm guessing that we can expect the price of food to continue rising beyond anything we've known even here at home, until supplies potentially run out completely.  Perhaps there will be spotty agricultural production, in which some crops succeed part of the time in certain locations - that has always been a dilemma for farmers in the past, but worsening now.  We may need to be prepared for dietary changes to suit the changing reality, and of course any buffer that we may have made for ourselves in terms of our own supplies laid-in ahead of time may make a huge difference in how we weather this, as you have so often counseled us to do.

https://www.barrons.com/articles/corn-prices-could-double-1523019600

A Barron's report dated last week predicts that corn prices may be about to double due to foul weather, harvest decline, and increase in Chinese demand for corn for ethanol fuel production.  When China recently ceased subsidizing corn crops, Chinese farmers began withdrawing from the marketplace in favor of reserving crops to feed their own livestock, more in keeping with subsistence farming practices.

The author advises buying corn futures now while prices are low, if one invests in that  market, as the doubled cost should show up in the futures marketplace by 2019, echoing sources quoted a few posts ago in this Town Hall thread.  As a side note: Preppers might want to consider laying in a good supply of dry corn products such as popcorn and non-GMO grits and cornmeal.  Bob's Red Mill produces both of the latter products, but read the labels carefully, as they produce both GMO and non-GMO versions of each item. 

Expiration dates usually go out at least a couple of years on these products, and shelf life can be extended by mixing handfuls of diatomaceous earth, French clay, non-GMO corn starch or other desiccant into loose unpackaged supplies, or by using oxygen absorber packets.  Popcorn can be ground with a hand mill to make meal, which is a slightly finer grind than grits.  Popcorn that has been in storage a long time can be soaked briefly in water in order to re-hydrate kernels enough to pop.

The Barron's article continued, saying that the U.S., which is the largest corn exporter, requires about 111 million tons of corn annually just for domestic fuel, not even taking food into consideration.  However, American farmers are switching from corn to soy production, while other corn-exporting nations such as Brazil, the EU, Argentina and the Ukraine are following suit in their reduction of corn planting.  In addition, long-range weather forecasts are calling for unfavorable growing conditions, including low temperatures during the growing season, as well as pronounced drought.

That's quite a thought.  It leads me to ponder, though, that a lot of our preps are probably things that the lazy and avaricious (gov't or otherwise) might not recognize the purpose of, or possess the skills to use to their advantage.

Examples:
Would the average thief know what to do with silver wire, a hive of bees, or medicinal herbs?

Or a scythe, bung wrench, or pail of baking soda?

A primitive stove, whetstone, or pressure canner?

Narrator says that hundreds of farmers in Nebraska who paid for hail insurance and planted their crops have just had their insurance cancelled after the fact, leaving them without coverage in the midst of the spring storm season.  The insurer is now under government review and farmers have been told to look elsewhere.

One wonders what other types of insurance may follow suit, potentially affecting all of us, as insurers become strained with claims.

Quote
Several hundred Nebraska farmers lose hail coverage



A small number of Nebraska farmers are finding out their crop production hail insurance has been canceled right in the middle of planting season.

Nebraska Department of Insurance Director Bruce Ramge said about 400 farmers were affected by the cancellation of the insurance policies by Crop Pro Insurance, which is a Des Moines-area startup company.

Crop production hail insurance is a supplemental product farmers buy to cover gaps in their federally subsidized multiperil crop insurance policies.

The crop production hail policies pay for actual crop losses caused by hail or wind damage that aren't covered by the multi-peril policies.

Seward County farmer James Duffek was one of the people affected.

Duffek said his cancellation notice mentioned that the company had sold too many insurance policies.

He said his insurance agent told him not to worry about it and that the situation would work itself out, but Duffek, who just finished planting, said it would be bad if a storm damaged his crops and he found out he had no coverage.

"I think it's pretty irresponsible," he said of the cancellations.

Ramge said it was his understanding that Crop Pro could not get reinsurance for all the policies it sold. Without reinsurance, which transfers some of the risk to another insurer, the company would be on the hook for 100 percent of any losses.

He said the Department of Insurance was reviewing the situation, and in the meantime, farmers affected by the cancellations should work with their insurance agents to find new coverage.

Crop Pro officials could not be reached for comment.

The company announced its launch last August with an $8 million venture capital investment.

At the time, co-founder Billy Rose said the company's goal was to serve the traditional crop insurance market while also helping the agriculture industry accelerate the adoption of emerging technologies.

Ilinda, can you elaborate?
Am wondering if the force(s) which have, or are, already causing minor alterations in Earth axial tilt, and/or axial deviation east or west, will be considerably more noticeable, and here's why:  we learn from Carol Ferrada as well as many others, that the PX System, after perihelion,  will exit our solar system on the side of the solar system where the Earth happens to be orbiting at that time.  That would have to be a great amount of additional mass, not to mention any magnetic field influences, especially of the larger bodies.

But without the PX System's intrusion in our solar system, there is a complex interplay of forces, primarily between Sun, moon, and Earth, but they are in balance with each other, as long as no extra-solar objects are involved.  But it appears that our balance is about to be upset.

One reason actually involves Amber Williamson's observations.  If anyone has looked closely at her pics, the main object in the same field of view as the Sun does appear to be gradually growing in size, which translates into "moving closer" to Earth.  It's difficult to know exactly how much larger the body is because cell phones don't ordinarily print a magnification factor so that we would know exactly how much larger an object is, than the unphotographed image.

One complicating factor is magnetic forces of any intruding bodies.  We all know how two magnets, each having both north and south poles, will repel each other if like poles are held in proximity, but will strongly attract each other if opposite poles are brought into proximity.  My best guess is that it is this extra-solar magnetic push or pull that would cause the sun's apparent elevation to begin changing drastically.  This is because, the Earth being considerably tiny, compared to the Sun, will succumb more easily to magnetic pushsing or pulling, and thus giving rise to an apparent change in sun's elevation.  What would actually be happening would be the Earth's tilt would change, making it appear the sun in its ecliptic is moving higher, or lower in the sky, when in fact, it would be the Earth tilting more, or less, than before.

Thanks for the interesting analysis Ilinda!  I wonder then what happens on the other half of the solar system, if all of our planets are in a 180 degree half of the solar system together, and a large body (or several?) comes into our half of the balance?  Maybe other bodies would simultaneously be drawn into the "vacant" half?

Have been seeing films of lots of creepy robotics lately. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8nQ_cngXdk

This film says that DARPA (DOD research arm) and Boston Dynamics have been manufacturing robots that can:
Quote
...walk, run, jump over things, stand upright like a human,...open doors, run in packs with one another...

and now eat human corpses on (or off?) a battlefield.

Quote
And, did I forget to mention that it was equipped with a chainsaw...for chopping up vegetation, of course.

Of course.

Did I mention that its name is EATR?

Quote
In a nutshell, they create some pretty creepy stuff, usually used to mess people up.

I was thinking exactly the same thing.  Plus think of all the toys and other electronic gizmos that have transmitters and receivers,and who knows, maybe one will emit an interfering frequency.  Maybe there are even "toys" that have frequency emitters attached to a rheostat-type control which can scan through a bunch of different frequencies!  So much to ponder.

They can also be used medicinally in place of the Rife Instrument if a stereo receiver is located on the opposite side of the room to amplify the sound and bounce it back.

Adapt 2030 interview by Crypto101 discussed disturbing global cooling-related crop price predictions today that we need to be bracing for:

*Food prices are expected to rise by 40% by the end of 2018.

*Food prices are projected to double in 2019.

*Food prices are anticipated to increase 500% by 2021.

*Food quality will consistently decline with each coming season

*Lack of nutrients in food will translate to a decline in health

*The public will shift its spending habits toward paying for food

*The average person will have no room for discretionary spending

*International shipments of food will need to be safeguarded, eliminating the old-fashioned letter of credit system

*New corporations will emerge just to deal with ensuring that food transactions proceed smoothly (e.g. Blockchain)

*There will be a return to the days of Robin Hood: stealing food from the rich to give to the poor

*China is quietly starting a basket of currencies called the SDR-A (Special Drawing Rights-A)

*Agricultural transactions are now beginning to be completed on Wheat-Chat

*Transactions will become quantum satellite-based under China's control, supposedly removing concerns about grid-down scenarios.

*China will control 50% of the food market, as well as a large part of the fuel market conducted in gold-backed Yuan cashed in and out of crypto-currencies

*Use of Cryptocurrencies will keep food transactions private as well, removing tax liabilities and possibly other risks

*People, not just corporations, may universally be required to use cryptocurrencies in the near future to buy food

*There's no room for error with crypto's - if a mistake is made the transaction may not be reversable

Research.  Treatments can be tried on a robot that should not be done on a person.
The psychopathic condition arose as a result of an experiment that did not have that outcome as an objective.  Very interesting and useful result.

Economic forecaster Jim Willie, who is known for being outspoken with strong opinions, predicts in this video that American retirees who have their savings in any type of pension plan may be forced to accept a revaluation offer of 50 cents on the dollar soon, as there are not enough current workers to fund all the retirees.  The ratio of workers to retirees should be 10:1, but presently is more like 2:1 he says.  Furthermore, government employee retirement funds are being bundled together and used to prop up government debt.

He further mentions that he suspects the true reason that massive cargo ships are circling in the coastal waters of the U.S. rather than unloading their cargo is that they are demanding payment in another form of currency than USD, and that news stories of dock worker strikes being at fault for stalled cargo have no basis in truth.

The Third Phase of the Moon team, who are from Hawaii, are reporting concerns by Hawaiians and others that FEMA barges may be preparing to dock off the coast of the island.  The team is in the process of attempting to contact FEMA directly to verify or debunk rumors, but no word back as of yet.

While the Third Phase team is using an abundance of caution in seeking verification about this before valildating the rumor, Before It's News is claiming already to have validated it, saying a FEMA employee confirmed on June 5 that an entire flotilla of barges embarked from San Diego, and it arrived on June 11.

What Could Go Wrong? US Army To Deploy Autonomous Killer Robots On Battlefield By 2028
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-06-17/what-could-go-wrong-us-army-deploy-
autonomous-killer-robots-battlefield-2028

United States Army Secretary Mark Esper recently revealed that the military has a strategic vision of utilizing autonomous and semi-autonomous unmanned vehicles on the battlefield by 2028.

    “I think robotics has the potential of fundamentally changing the character of warfare. And I think whoever gets there first will have a unique advantage on the modern battlefield,” Esper said during a Brookings Institution event.

    “My ambition is by 2028, to begin fielding autonomous and certainly semi-autonomous vehicles that can fight on the battlefield,” he added. “Fight, sustain us, provide those things we need and we’ll continue to evolve from there.”

In a preview of the U.S. Army’s strategic vision, released on June 6, Esper said the integration of these forces would become a critical strategic component, quoting from the document:

    The Army of 2028 will be able to deploy, fight, and win decisively against any adversary, anytime, and anywhere … through the employment of modern manned and unmanned ground combat systems aircraft, sustainment systems and weapons.

When Esper was reportedly asked about concerns regarding autonomous robots being a threat to humanity, he replied in jest, “Well, we’re not doing a T-3000 yet,” referencing the Terminator movie series about self-aware AI threatening the existence of humanity.
Of course, while he jokes about the threat of autonomous killer robots, polymath inventor Elon Musk clearly takes the potential of such a threat much more seriously, as evidenced by his comments at the South by Southwest (SXSW) conference and festival on March 11, in which he said that “AI is far more dangerous than nukes.”

    “I’m very close to the cutting edge in AI and it scares the hell out of me,” Musk told the SXSW crowd. “Narrow AI is not a species-level risk. It will result in dislocation… lost jobs… better weaponry and that sort of thing. It is not a fundamental, species-level risk, but digital super-intelligence is.”

Max.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ORKaDTddVQ (a religious channel)

Normally I don't bother listening to videos with mechanized narration, but this one caught my attention: 

The Four Stages of the Collapse of Venezuela, as told off-the-record by a Venezualan journalist:

Stage 1.  Voluntary exile of elite members of the political opposition:

Quote
It is very likely that they had first-hand information, and that they knew what was about to come.  They tried to warn about what was coming up to the entire population.

Prominent people remaining, such as journalists, were placed under house arrest or worse, and prohibited from participating in the political process.  Some in the opposition party became corrupted and aligned themselves with the take-over.

Stage 2. Upper-Middle Class Migration:
Professionals who gradually realized that their quality of life was diminishing decided to abandon property and extended family members and flee.  Their higher level of education enabled them to get through the emigration process fairly smoothly.  Many of these rose from the lower middle class through hard work and Chavez's investment of oil revenues into free higher education in Venezuela.  However, while most college students had gained an appreciation of the tenets of democracy, the military colleges were teaching the opposite, which led to the demise of the Constitution.

Stage 3. Seizure of private property from unarmed owners:
Even high-security residential neighborhoods faced having their gates bull-dozed down by the government.  The empty houses were then given as a reward to informants who spied on their neighbors, all under the guise of helping the deserving poor.

Stage 4. Locking up dissidents:
The majority of those left behind became dissidents and were denied equal access to food and medicine.  The intelligence agencies even targeted military officers in their total surveillance of everyone remaining in the country.  The once-educated officers were replaced with less-educated ones who were given authoritarian leeway to imprison people without a court order.  Just one comment in the social media about dissatisfaction with the government could land someone in jail.  The government went door to door locating dissidents and locked them up. 

At this point, a lot of people belatedly applied for passports.

Prices began rising daily and electronic payment systems failing. 

Five Things that Disappeared in the Collapse of Venezuela:


1. Firearms were confiscated from all but military and police

2. Money.  Cash was favored by sellers over electronic payment, such that prices were cut in half for cash transactions.  Salaries were frozen.  Foreign cash is scarce but highly valued.  ATM's only operate part-time, and dispense very little cash, which is tightly rationed, even to those who have a lot of savings.  Government workers have the best benefits.  Government mismanagement has driven 8,000 corporations out of business.  People are fleeing the country first and then notifying their employers after the fact by email, leaving a situation where out of 25 workers in a company, 3 may be left to run it.

3. Utilities.  The military has been actively cutting electrical wires in order to bring the population to submission.  In some locations, power is limited by the government to 2 hours daily.  This affects water supplies.  People living in cramped quarters in urban areas do not have enough space to install back-up water tanks.  Propane supply is also commandeered by the military. 

4. Food.  In the hyperinflationary environment, foor is both scarce and unaffordable, and people are noticeably losing too much weight.  Those who have enough money still must travel all over to locate food. 

5. Transportation.  Even someone with plenty of money can no longer get parts for a car.  Bicycles and small easy to repair vehicles are most valuable.  Otherwise, one must walk everywhere.  Even a motorcycle is too expensive to operate.

It is a journey that I would not wish on my worst enemy, indeed.

Agree.  Digital super-intelligence conveyed to AI--how could it end in anything but perpetual servitude of humans, at best.  At worst, annihilation, because once AI is unleashed and totally autonomous, every thing on this planet, living or non-living, will serve merely as resouorces for AI's next project(s).

UN Troops to Exterminate Selected Americans In FEMA Camps According to FM 39.4

http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/un-troops-to-exterminate-americans-in-fema-camps-according-to-fm-39-4/

It is laughable that some in the Independent Media are still in denial about the existence and true nature of concentration camps in America, commonly known as FEMA camps. The evidence is overwhelming and from certain documents we can ascertain how “detainees” will be captured and transported to these infamous FEMA camps.

From the perspective of history, concentration camps are notoriously known for being institutions of murder. Based on this notion, I scoured the Army concentration camp manual entitled FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations (PDF), and found only scant reference to the subject of deaths in the concentration camps. Now wait a minute, this document painstakingly describes interrogation processes, food preparation, the transport and care of detainees, but they barely mention how they are going to deal with dead bodies? Aren’t people going to die in captivity?

In a facility filled with a divergent population with regard to age, health status and physical conditioning, should the authorities be concerned with what happens when an inmate dies from an unexpected heart attack or stroke? What would they do with the dead bodies?

If proper preparations are not taken for the proper care and disposal of dead bodies, wouldn’t that imperil the health of fellow inmates, not to mention the guards and other military personnel? This should be a primary concern for any facility.

Notice in the above (5-72) that only meaningful categories of inmate death are (1) the detainee’s own misconduct and (2) death due to external causes.

    5-73. The NRDC will notify the ICRC of all detainee deaths. The NDRC will maintain detainee DD Forms 2064 for the period of hostilities or occupation, for the duration of any other military operation, or as otherwise directed. When authorized, the NDRC will archive detainee DD Forms 2064.

Appendix N
Foreign Confinement Officer Training Program

Training U.S. Trainers

    N-43. Soldiers and Marines who are assigned training missions receive a course of preparation to deal with the specific requirements of developing the target HN confinement officers (i.e. foreign detention officers). The course should emphasize the cultural background of the HN, introduce its language (to include specific confinement-related terms and phrases) and provide insights into cultural tips for developing a good rapport with HN personnel.


The beginning of this section attempts to create the illusion that foreign troops will be under the complete control of Army personnel. However, I believe it is likely that the mass exterminations of the detainees will take place when the American military is withdrawn from the facilities. If there was any doubt as to the fact that our soon-to-be jailers will be foreign and will have no hesitation to carry out mass genocide, the following regulation from the document should remove all doubt.

On this day of celebrating Independence and all the struggle accompanying it, how ironic that China has just announced the development of a laser gun designed to ignite the hair of protestors, as well as their picket signs and banners, and to cause intense pain.  All supposedly non-lethal, of course...

Interesting that she names 2030 as the outside date for robots replacing humans in the workforce.  That date coincides with some predictions for the 500,000 max population of the Georgia Guidestones to be implemented.  Meaning that we are being replaced by workers that won't need to sleep, eat, retire, draw pensions, rely upon Medicare, commit unprogrammed crimes, etc.

True story: A man who couldn't bear the death of his wife had her memories uploaded into a head-and-shoulders-only robot made to look and sound like her.  She had cooperated in the project ahead of time, submitting voice transcripts and a detailed biography with recollections and social history (Mindfile).  This was coupled with laser scanning of her facial details, AI, and voice recognition technology.  The result, "Bina48," is uncannily similar to the real wife and able to hold convincing conversations.

She maintains both a Twitter and a Facebook account for connecting with her friends.

Ethical and spiritual considerations:

1. Part of life on earth is learning how to let go of the lower-dimensional physical.

2. A robotic copy of a person can never actually replace a real human being, and those seeking to escape reality in this method might actually end up lonelier than by toughing out the grieving process and opening up to other people still on earth.

3. In failing to let go, we may miss out on the part of ascension in which our consciousness develops to the point of realizing the genuine presence of our loved ones again.

4. Once this technology is perfected, unlimited copies of Mindfiles can be uploaded into more than one simulation of the departed to be used as the owner or owners desire.

5. This technology potentially could be used as a total replacement for humans who are regarded by some as useless eaters.

Understood, but at this age and stage of my life, after multiple partnerships dissolved, I would be content with a 100% functional and compatible female robot.  She would have no psychological problems but be tolerant of mine.  I suspect that even the non-physical components (aura, etc.) could be simulated in part by inclusion of orgonite, crystals, tachyon antennae, etc. in the body.  Who would be hurt by that?  Let the supply meet the demand.

Does anyone remember another Star Trek episode in which some man (?scientist?) was left on an isolated planet with some gal and it was only in the very last few moments of that episode that, while she was "dying", it became obvious that she was an android, as she called out to her partner guy, Corey:  "Corey..Corey...Coorrey...Cooorrrey......Coooooorrrrreeeeyyyyy" that the audience knew her real identity.  Her voice became slower and slower, and as it did, it also became deeper and deeper, all of which added to the intensity of the moment.

But while she was "alive" she and he had a wonderful relationship.  Wish I could recall the name of that episode.

A Venezuelan Prepper Looks Back: “Things I Would Have Done Differently If I Knew What Was Coming”

https://www.theorganicprepper.com/venezuelan-prepper/

Having overcome a few personal incidents that rocked the boat these last few weeks, I want to write now about one of the most important experiences regarding the psychological aspect of prepping. Looking back as a Venezuelan prepper, there are things I would have done differently if I had fully known what was coming our way.

Enduring what we have gone through, even after having a proper approach to prepping, sort of conventional in a sense: gensets, water tanks, storage capacity, dry supplies for a few months, and other stuff, all of these are into the field of the conventional and regular prepping.

This is stuff that any person concerned about self-reliance should have covered. But next, we have to try to imagine what could be on the horizon that we have never considered.

I am not talking about prepping for every conceivable threat. That is just not possible nor practical.

What I want, is that you imagine what your action course would be just in case your worst scenario, one so bad you could not even imagine, takes place.

It was all great until the apocalypse started.

How to identify this threshold is not easy for me nowadays. The more I research, the more I realize this was a planned action and conceptualized a long time ago. My generation did not have a chance to prevent it. The plan was already rolling and we were teenagers, unable to hold a gun.

The situation gets worst every day. Prices in electronic, paying via bank transfer are much higher than in cash but it is impossible to get cash. People are calling to their day jobs to quit because they can´t get there, and anyway, salaries are not enough to make a decent living, not even to be able to eat a couple of days.

You have to think outside the box to survive.  :(
 
If you keep thinking inside the box and hoping for the things will improve, good luck. Chances are that is not going to happen that way. On the contrary.

Max.

Title: Re: A Look Into Our Future: Predicting an Economic Collapse
Post by: R.R. Book on July 14, 2018, 10:36:41 AM
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znh6jwniQy4

Ten well-positioned economic forecasters who have made their fortune betting against market trends are quoted in a video earlier this month discussing signs of coming economic distress:

*Tax cuts recently authorized by Congress will push the budget deficit to $1 trillion by 2019, without boosting the economy more than .7% over a ten year period, per the Congressional Budget Office.

*The Federal Reserve has stated an about-face in policy: it intends to halt its decade-long commitment to purchasing Treasury and mortgage bonds, reversing artificial suppression of bond yields as economic stimulus.  Instead, both the Fed and the Dep't of Treasury will now begin selling off bonds in the open marketplace, causing a jump in interest rates and likely spooking the Stock Market.

*Direct interest rate hikes by the Fed in an attempt to forestall inflation will likely occur 4 times in 2018, and 4 times in 2019. 

*Weak companies will respond to this by becoming even shakier, with corporate defaults beginning when short-term interest rates reach 3%, likely in 2020.

*A 40% drop in the stock market, after an initial rise, in response to corporate defaults.

*There is a euphoria or false sense of confidence in the marketplace, driving bubbles in both stocks and credit.  There is no wiggle room should these bubbles burst, as the economy is presently "at full employment," meaning that virtually everyone who wants a job is presumed by the government to have one.  Therefore, there can be no higher employment rate than we presently have, whatever the real number may actually be, but there can be a reduction in employment in response to market conditions. 

*There will be blowback over the length of time in which the Fed took to raise interest rates, resulting in sudden runaway inflation when credit is once again tightened and rates begin rising.  This will force the Fed to speed up its program of interest increases.

*We should experience a full recession before the next Presidential election in 2020 (70% chance predicted).  A stock-market sell-off will precede this by 6 months to a year.

*Other factors that will combine to force the Fed to raise rates soon: a federal infrastructure bill currently under discussion that is projected to cost $1.5 trillion over ten years, as well as flooding the market with cash.

*There is more populism and conflict in society presently than in 1937 when the Fed was forced to raise interest rates, meaning any worsening of the economy could result in greater social volatility.

*Wall Street analysts have published overly-optimistic stock market predictions which inexplicably increase the value by 46% over the last full year's report.  Disappointment is likely to follow.

*The collapse to come is predicted to be to the tune of $68 trillion and wipe out millions of Americans. 

*There is no current economic proposal in the U.S. that is capable of preventing a crash, partly due to the volatility of the rest of the world with which the U.S. is involved.  The debt is not going away, nor the interest on the debt.

*A 50% collapse is not looming; it is already here.

*Growth in GDP is essential in order for the Federal Reserve's policies to succeed.  A decline in GDP of even a fraction in two consecutive quarters signals the onset of a recession. 

*A currency crisis will only be one result if Fed policies fail.  Wealth will transfer from those with a paper portfolio to those with tangible assets.

*Stocks are currently over-valued by 80%, and we are presently in the same situation as in 1929 and 1999.

*The American public needs to reduce its expenses to the bare necessities.

*Everyone should build an emergency cash fund.

*Stockpile food, meds, and other essentials

*Get away from cities and to a defensible location

Since Maersk is struggling to remain solvent, it seems the heart of the matter is "people aren't buying as much stuff".  Not being an economist or accountant, I have to explain these things to myself in a way I can understand it.

And people not buying stuff makes sense, as world economies are all pretty much shakey, at best.  If it's too expensive to continue shipping between Asia and Northern Europe, then there must not be enough "stuff" moving between those two areas.  My 2 cents.

Good point.  And the reverse may also be true: if so many of these goods are the cheaply produced items that we are used to seeing in Dollar Tree, Dollar General, and W-mart, perhaps the value of our dollar is no longer matching the cost to produce and ship these items?

If so, we may either see our bargain stores dry up, or items of lesser value being sold thru them.

I've noticed that too.  In fact, I can still remember when the "Everything's a Dollar" store used to be kind of exotic, and you had to be in a city to visit one.

Now it seems that every town has one.  Do you suppose their presence has prevented the American public from feeling how much less our USD can purchase these days, as compared with, say, in the 1990's?

Also, since China owns a disproportionately large percentage of US debt, my understanding is that we are obligated to push their goods here (or at least were until Trump slapped a trade tariff on their imports here), and maybe the Dollar stores help to satisfy that function?  I wonder how much of the Dollar merchandise is from China?

You cannot talk about the U.S. as if it's one country any more.  The 52 (sic) states are very different.  You can have a booming state and a lagging state.  This is another theme that's very new on the table right now.

We can no longer look at national statistics to discern local trends.  We need to examine stats for our area specifically.

Discussion continues, centering upon the importance of Cannabis in moving the U.S. economy forward.

Canada is now the first G-6 country to legalize Cannabis, opening the way to legalize medical research that was prohibited in the past. 

Canada and the Netherlands are the only two countries that can legally export medical Cannabis.  An American physician in many locations now can write a prescription for it, but pharmacies do not stock it in pharmaceutical-grade.

Thirty states plus the District of Colombia have authorized medical use of Cannabis, and eight states have legalized it for recreational use.  Several more are about to pass similar legislation.  Money that would have poured into supporting organized crime will now be funneled toward tax revenues.  The DEA is the only entity against this trend, as it will negatively impact their "War on Drugs" budget.

In the U.S. Congress, the Democrats have sponsored bi-partisan legislation legalizing Cannabis on the federal level, which is probably 3-5 years away from ratification.  Meanwhile, states that have already legalized the crop are hastening to put measures in place to block federal agencies from interfering with their 10th Amendment rights.

Previous illegalization of Cannabis in Canada had set the current new industry back considerably, as knowledge of state-of-the-art horticulture practices was forbidden, indoor hydroponics in particular.  One modern efficient technique that the Canadians are learning is growing Cannabis under lower lighting with less energy output, leading to shorter plants which don't waste energy on roots and stalks.  Vertical space can also be used. 

Current Canadian Cannabis grower goals are to increase efficiency to the point of yielding six harvests per year, while keeping the industry in the hands of smaller-scale farmers in a niche market that focuses more upon quality than mass-production.  Medical applications will take first priority over recreational ones.

Very soon, CBD will be considered a nutraceutical product, and will be included in a lot of daily supplements.  Products containing the stronger THC cannabinoid will likely continue to be regulated in a similar manner to alcohol.

What do you like to use for dish and laundry soap?
For laundry detergent/soap, I use what I make and there are only three ingredients:  grated lye soap bars, washing soda, and borax.  It does suds, maybe not as much as some toxic detergents, but it works.    If I ever find it impossible to obtain washing soda and/or borax, I can just grate lye soap bars very finely, and it will work.  I even use my handmade lye soap on my hair.  It cleans but does not make it "squeaky" like the store-bought soaps do.  I'm fine with that.

Dish soap is still an experiment.  Hubby buys the toxic Ivory liquid or whatever, just because we need something, but am/are still looking.  What do you use for the dish and laundry cleaning?

I'm not as far along as you with DIY methods.  I like a very few drops of dye & fragrance-free laundry soap with a little white vinegar. 

For dishes, a few drops of a dye & fragrance-free liquid soap plus a few drops of alcohol.

How much of the grated soap bars do you use for each application?  Any special kind of lye soap bars, or do you make your own?
Title: Re: A Look Into Our Future
Post by: ilinda on July 24, 2018, 11:39:51 AM
First I make our own bar soap, and have been since the early 1990's.  It is a basic "lye soap" recipe, and I make it "plain" or with goat milk for the goat milk soap fans.

The basic lye soap has only three ingredients:  organic Nutiva coconut oil, water, lye crystals.  If am making goat milk soap, I just substitute goat milk for the water, with all else the same.

Now to make detergent, I found a recipe somewhere that I've followed (somewhat), and I have it written on the detergent container:
4.5 ounce bar of hand soap, grated finely
1 c. washing soda
1 c. borax powder
Mix well.  Ready to use.  I just use a scoop of whatever size scoop I have handy, depending on how large the load.  And as mentioned before, if I ever cannot get washing soda and/or borax, can just use grated bar soap, as it sudses very well as a bar, and thus would do the same if in granules.  I confess to not weighing the bar of soap, so some batches may be more sudsy, and others less so.  But it works and is very planet friendly.

One day, if I haven't already, will post my soapmaking recipe.  It's so easy.   However it assumes one has access to store-bought drain cleaner, one that is 100% lye or potassium hydroxide.  It's available from Amazon, so I buy from there as it comes sealed in a thin plastic wrap that is factory sealed (around the actual container).

But if someday you cannot find lye anywhere, you can run water through wood ashes, several times, to yield a fairly good lye substitute.  There are probably youtube videos on how to do this, but it's worth mentioning.  I've done this, and although it's more labor intensive, you do end up with an alkaline solution that can be used as lye for making soap.  This is how the pioneers made soap several hundred years ago.  We must not forget these things....

Killer robots poised for 'MASS PRODUCTION' as campaigners urge AI to be made ILLEGAL
  :o

https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/latest-news/724691/robots-artificial-intelligence-killer-war-planes-guns

Campaigners are desperate to stop the production of AI-powered guns, planes, ships and tanks without human control.

A group of 26 countries have teamed up to call for a ban on fully autonomous weapons, joining thousands of scientists and AI experts.

A fresh report from Campaign to Ban Killer Robots says fully autonomous weapons would violate Martens Clause, reports The Guardian, an international humanitarian law.

Bonnie Docherty, senior arms researcher at Human Rights Watch, said: "Permitting the development and use of killer robots would undermine established moral and legal standards.
It comes after Daily Star Online revealed that conscious killer robots are poised to "bide their time" to "enslave" the human race, an expert claims.

Subhash Kak – a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Oklahoma University – told us: "If indeed machines become self-aware, they will be cunning and they will bide their time and choose the best moment to take over and enslave, if not kill, us."

Kak added: "If you believe that machines will become 'conscious' like us, then the possibility that such machines will kill off humans cannot be ruled out.

The thing that seems inevitable to me is the eventual use of these monsters on civilians in their own country.  Once a fortune (of money printed out of thin air) is spent on building these killer bots, there will be an overwhelming temptation to employ them in some manner in order to justify the expense of building, housing and maintaining them, as well as to hone the operating skills of those controlling them.

We may not see them come stomping down a country lane any time soon, but I wouldn't want to be living in a city that is policed by one of those, or a whole fleet of them.

Bonnie Docherty, senior arms researcher at Human Rights Watch, said: "Permitting the development and use of killer robots would undermine established moral and legal standards.

The campaign to ban killer robots has failed in the United Nations after a move by the U.S. and Russia to block passage of a resolution, in spite of clearly stated objections to the killer bots by a majority of nations.  This means that we will be seeing them, at least on the battle fields, if not on the streets. 

Israel also possesses killer robots.

The concern has now shifted from "whether" they will be permitted to "how much" autonomy the bots will have.

Remember complaints by some in the U.S. when the film Avatar was released in 2009, with the killer robots driven by military personnel with American accents?  And yet what is being planned is even scarier: the bots in real life will be permitted to make their own decisions, if Washington's persuasive rhetoric wins over the U.N.

Here's a chart depicting the main industry of each state in the U.S.  How might each location fare overall in an extended grid-down scenario?  Other scenarios?

In an extended grid-down scenario, can't imagine fossil fuel vehicles driving any of the underground economies.  That would mean at least six states, Indiana, Mississippi, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, and South Carolina would be potential losers.  ( Hope I've correctly named all those "pink states").

I agree that everything would need to become more localized.  It seems to me that the food producing states might continue to prosper in a barter economy, but then there'd be no refrigerated storage for much of it, and perishables would need to be eaten or processed at home almost as soon as they were harvested.

So maybe the blue and red states might fare well on a less-national scale than before, with Maine possibly having the advantage of not requiring large inputs of grain or hay that the red states would require?

Am also supposing that the other states might need to step-up their agricultural production, though on a less-commercial, more wide-spread smallholder basis than currently, with each local community focused upon feeding itself.
Title: Re: A Look Into Our Future: 5-G Cell Technology

Could 5G be better for us than ever, or is this just disinfo?

Earlier today there was a three-way discussion between David Mauriello ("Diamond Oppenheimer"), Rex Bear and Lee Wheelbarger.  Those who follow the Grand Solar Minimum theory may be familiar with Lee, an electrical engineer and government contractor, from numerous recent interviews about preparing for an EMP, etc.

Wheelbarger surprised everyone present by stating that each successive generation of cell-phone relay system is less dangerous than its predecessors. 

Please feel free to weigh in if you can.

I hit-and-missed through the video, and listened to a lot of it, but never once heard the guy claiming 5G is safe, refer to one study showing its safety.  He continued to prod the other guy to present a study, yet he himself couldn't do the same.

What I have seen says 5G will the the very worst thing we can imagine, in terms of safety, not only for humans, but for other lifeforms.  I'm sure there have been several articles linked here on the TH about the dangers of 5G, including studied showing DNA damage, cell disruptions, etc.  Maybe I'll look for what's already been posted here....     In the meantime, the 5G supporter did nothing to convince me of anything except that he enjoyed interrupting the other guy.

I'm thinking the same thing...If it's supposedly so safe, then let us see the proof.  What population has it been tested on to-date, and over what period of time?  And what other "payload" might be slipped into it?

Third Phase of the Moon documents that a Russian inventor, working out of his own home, has discovered a new metal with anti-gravity properties. 

Standard laws of physics had to be bent in order to make this possible, we are told.  Youtube subtitles did not adequately capture the Russian explanation, but the inventor made it clear that there were no strings attached overhead to the prototypical hovering craft, simply by passing a stick over the top of it.

There is still, however, a power cord attached to it from what I could see.

Two prominent videographers within the Truth Community offer opposite opinions as to whether it is a good idea for PTB in California to proactively shut off power to homes when the wind speed is elevated.

MrMBB333 says it's a sensible move, while InTruthByGrace says it's a cover story for another agenda, as power is being cut off to homes located in 5 mph wind speeds.

Thoughts?

I have never heard of this before.  Does anyone know more about it?

Have been following free energy development for a couple of decades, but if this is one such device, I'm not familiar with it, especially if it puts out the kind of power Wayne says it does.  He says they're appearing all over the world.

The military is purchasing an army of robots small enough to fit inside of a backpack, according to Military.com.  They will weigh under 25 pounds.

Rex Bear hosts Nostradamus scholar and prognosticator John Hogue for an in-depth 2 1/2 hours of analysis and predictions for 2020 and the remainder of 2019:

Note: Predictions seem to occupy the first half hour, with more of a historic retrospective reconciled with Nostradamus for the remainder of the film.
