Do You Get The Feeling That Events Happening Now Are Leading Us Into An Endless Global Nightmare?

2021 was supposed to be the year that life went back to normal.  Obviously that is not happening, and so a lot of prominent voices out there are going to be forced to update their narratives.  Global events have really started to accelerate, and so many of the things that the “doom and gloomers” have been warning about are starting to happen right in front of our eyes. 

For example, on my websites I have been talking about Israel a lot in recent months, and now it appears that the region is on the brink of war.  So far, more than 700 rockets have been fired into Israel from Gaza, but by the time you read this article that number will probably be even higher.  In response, the IDF has conducted a series of dramatic strikes inside Gaza, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is promising “to attack harder and increase the pace of attacks”

‘Hamas will be hit in ways that it does not expect,’ Netanyahu said. ‘We have eliminated commanders, hit many important targets and we have decided to attack harder and increase the pace of attacks.’

Joe Biden and other world leaders are begging for peace, but neither side appears to be inclined to back down.

Every time Israel retaliates, Hamas just launches even more rockets at Israeli cities, and they are insisting that this is their “right”

“We have the right to respond to the Israeli offensive and protect the interests of our people as long as the Israeli occupation continues the escalation,” Hamas said in a statement.

So here we go.

As I discussed last week, this situation has the potential to get out of control very rapidly.

On Tuesday, the skies above Tel Aviv looked like a sci-fi movie as Israel’s Iron Dome intercepted countless incoming rockets from Gaza.  Could you imagine living in fear that a rocket could explode right next to you at any moment?

If that was happening in this country, millions of Americans would be screaming for Biden to nuke somebody.

Meanwhile, the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack has caused massive gasoline shortages up and down the east coast of the United States.  On Tuesday evening, the Drudge Report breathlessly declared that more than 1,000 gas stations had run out of gasoline, and Zero Hedge was reporting that some people were waiting in line for up to five hours in a desperate attempt to fill up their vehicles.

Up until recently, just about the only thing that we were missing from the economy of the 1970s was the long gas lines, but now here we are.

North America’s largest petroleum pipeline has been shut down for just a few days, and now much of the southeastern quadrant of the country is absolutely paralyzed.

Do you think that there is a lesson to be learned here?

Of course there is.  Once again we see how incredibly vulnerable we are to any sort of a major disruption.  If the unprecedented power grid failure in Texas a few months ago was not enough of a wake up call for you, this definitely should be.

At this point, we are being told it is uncertain whether or not the Colonial Pipeline will be able to restore operations by this weekend…

If the Colonial Pipeline is not back in business by the weekend, prices could continue to rise at the pump and there will be broader localized fuel shortages across the southeast and mid-Atlantic regions.

Eventually, the flow of gasoline will be restored and everyone along the east coast will be able to fill up their vehicles again.

But the crazy inflation that we are witnessing right is not going to go away.



For years, economic “doom and gloomers” have been warning that if we kept recklessly creating, borrowing and spending money that really bad things would happen.

How many times have we heard about “the death of the dollar” and the dangers of wildly inflating our currency?

Well, it turns out that the “doom and gloomers” were dead on accurate.  Inflation is one of the biggest stories of 2021 so far, and we just got another confirmation of how bad things are getting out there…

The median price for a single-family home in the U.S. rose the most on record in the first quarter, as buyers fought over a dearth of inventory, according to the National Association of Realtors.

Prices jumped 16.2% from a year earlier to a record high of $319,200. The growth eclipsed the 14.8% rate in the fourth quarter, which was the highest in data going back to 1989, the group said in a report Tuesday.

But at least home prices are not rising as fast as the price of cotton is.

If you can believe it, the price of cotton is up more than 50 percent over the past year.

Of course the price of corn is rising even more rapidly.  As I discussed the other day, the price of corn is up about 50 percent just since the turn of the year.

Needless to say, lumber still has everyone else beat.  The price of lumber has actually risen over 200% over the past 12 months.

A lot of comparisons have been made to the horrible inflation that the U.S. experienced during the 1970s, but really I think that we need to go all the way back to the 1930s for a more accurate parallel to our current situation.

At this point, we are becoming more like the Weimar Republic with each passing day.

But if you think that things are really bad now, just wait, because you ain’t seen nothing yet.

Everywhere you look, systems are failing, society is crumbling and evil is growing.  Even the Secret Service, who are supposed to be the best of the best, are now plagued by endless scandals and widespread incompetence.

This is not a drill.  A widespread societal collapse is now underway, and it is going to get progressively worse.

This is the time of our endless nightmare, but nobody is going to ever be allowed to wake up from it.

News of Anti-America Stupidity

The AMA now embraces Critical Race Theory; horses arses!

 Anti-2nd Amendment news this week- Etsy banned gun parts and accessories such as leather holsters & display stands. Even jewelry sellers with the word "gun" in their listings got put on notice. We’ll no longer buy from this site.

A remarkable thing happened yesterday that tells you everything you need to know about inflation.

Supply chain issues keep piling up. I can’t find gas. Rockets flying in the Mid-East. Dismal jobs reports. Fed’s making it rain while the world’s experiencing droughts. Economic shutdowns and replacing production with consumption is just the icing on the cake.

Welcome to the new norm.

Prepared yet?

In the morning, US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen stated bluntly that “interest rates will have to rise somewhat to make sure that our economy doesn’t overheat. . .”

For economists, an ‘overheating economy’ means inflation. So she was essentially saying that rates would have to rise to prevent inflation.

Yet hours later, she completely reversed herself, saying that interest rates would NOT have to rise because “I don’t think there’s going to be an inflationary problem.”

You don’t need a PhD in economics to smell the BS.

Inflation is not some potential issue down the road. Inflation is already here.

Inflation is clearly a concern of the largest companies in the world. Investors are worried. Consumers can see it.

And in a rare moment of truth yesterday morning, a politician almost admitted that she was concerned about inflation too.

This is not some wild conspiracy. Inflation is real. It’s happening. Let’s look at three key drivers:

1) Capacity Constraints

Last year the entire world shut down. Businesses and factories everywhere closed, and plenty of companies went out of business.

Many companies who survived took radical steps to conserve cash-- laying off workers, liquidating inventory, and selling equipment.

One critical consequence was that the amount of capacity in the system was greatly reduced.

Here’s an example: I’ve been in Cancun for several weeks, and as you know, this place is a major tourist destination.

Last year when tourism dried up, plenty of companies went out of business. Rental car companies, for example, had practically zero customers. Many went bankrupt. Others survived by selling off most of their vehicles, believing that it would be years before the tourists returned.

But a year later, the tourists are back.

Problem is, there are now very few cars to rent in Cancun, because rental agencies either went bankrupt or liquidated their inventories.

As a result, car rental prices in Cancun have surged; supply is scarce, yet demand is back to normal.

We’re seeing similar effects across the economy. Capacity is limited because of the extreme measures that businesses took last year. And they can’t simply flip a switch and bring capacity back to normal. It takes time.

They’ll have to invest in inventory, hire more staff, etc. Eventually, these supply/demand imbalances will stabilize. But for the foreseeable future, it’s driving prices higher.

This is the type of inflation that politicians and central bankers have been calling “transitory”. In other words, it’s temporary pressure that should subside in the future.

2) COVID lunacy

Hardly anyone talks about this... but just think about all the idiotic rules that people have to follow now.

If you own a retail store in a shopping mall, for example, you have to pay employees to stand at the door ready to hose down every customer who walks inside with hand sanitizer.

And imagine how much money businesses are spending now on PPE… masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, etc. Or companies (airlines, hotels, etc) that now employ legions of workers to chemically scrub every nook and cranny of the premises.

All of this costs money, and the extra costs eventually get passed on to consumers. Most likely, these measures are not going away… which means that COVID is extremely inflationary.

3) Trillions in money printing

This is the big one. The US federal government is hoping to spend a whopping $11 TRILLION this year, between the regular budget, COVID stimulus already passed, and all the new legislation they’re proposing.

And it’s only May.

Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country.  That’s the gist of the appeal scores of America’s military elite made in a new clarion call to citizens who care and are engaged.

An open letter from the Flag Officers 4 America Web site, signed by 124 Generals and Admirals, warns that if you are a citizen who cares and is engaged, you must get involved “at the local, state, and/or national level to elect political representatives who will act to Save America, our Constitutional Republic, and hold those currently in office accountable.”

Stock these items before they disappear again

Stock these items before they disappear again

Right before the first lockdowns within the U.S. I wrote several articles detailing the items that were likely to become hard to find as the supply chain became strained, and people began to stockpile essentials. I noted that certain items will remain available to a point, but only because of rationing by retailers. Other items would remain on the shelves, but only because their prices skyrocketed.

Now, the supply chain is once again seeing strain and inflation is rising, and there are many goods that I suspect will either disappear (like ammo has mostly disappeared), or the costs will climb until the average person cannot afford to purchase such items. This is a threat that the public is slowly growing aware of, but the real crisis has not hit them yet.

I also expect that if there is a panic to stock goods before inflation strikes hard the list of items being rationed by big box stores will expand. Understand that in some cases there may not necessarily be a true shortage with certain items, but retailers will follow government "guidelines" in order to "prevent hoarding."  Meaning, the retailers will be told to acclimate the public to the idea of rationing as a way of life.

I would note that product rationing under government influence or request (or demand) is very common within socialist and communist countries with failing economies. I would also note that usually, hyperinflation or stagflation often strikes these same economies resulting in forced government price-fixing and extreme supply breakdowns. I expect all of this to happen within the U.S. over the next couple of years, however, for now, let's focus on goods that are probably going to become scarce in the near term.

Rationing by totalitarian governments is not so much meant to protect supply chains as it is meant to prevent the public from stocking enough goods at one time to become more independent from the system. With a year or more of basic necessities in every household, the majority of crisis events would not trigger panic in the populace, and panic is exactly what the establishment wants.

 They want you to be as unprepared as possible, with only a week's worth of supplies at any given time. If you are always worried about where next week's food and other necessities are going to come from, it is very difficult to find the motivation and will to rebel against the system that is abusing you.

In rural areas, the dynamic changes slightly, as a far larger percentage of the population is more accustomed to living off the land. Cities are going to remain the hardest-hit areas when the supply chain slows down. Meaning, if there is a breakdown in the "just in time" stocks of retailers, the cities will be hit first. During the last lockdown, I noticed people from larger towns and cities, even out-of-state people, coming to my rural area and buying up supplies in the local stores because the stores where they were from were empty of specific goods. Do not be surprised if this happens again in the near term.

Now is the time to stock the goods you might need for the next several months, while the economic and pandemic situation is relatively quiet. Here is a list along with a brief explanation for each item...

Prescription medications

More specifically, painkillers and antibiotics are about to become harder to find. Such medications are already in low supply, and this is supposedly due to their use in COVID treatment. Antibiotics are being used in post-COVID treatments to avoid bacterial infections.

That said, I suspect that the shortages are more to do with the fact that China manufactures the VAST majority of U.S. drugs and supplements. It is likely that the Chinese have been stockpiling drugs for themselves and slowing exports despite higher demand overseas, just as they have been stockpiling many other goods. American dependence on China to maintain our medical supplies is a massive Achilles Heal.

If you have a doctor that is liberty-minded, they may be willing to give you an extra prescription for the medications you need. If you are diabetic and insulin-dependent, then you need to address this issue right now. I would also suggest looking into alternative treatments and (including fasting) in order to reduce sugar deficiencies in your body.

If you can't stock low supply medications through your doctor, there are alternatives. I have noticed that Fish Mox (which is the same Amoxicillin that is used for humans) is back and available on some websites. I have used it on multiple occasions, and it does work, just be sure you do not have any allergies.

I have noticed that Fish Mox (which is the same Amoxicillin that is used for humans) is back and available on some websites. I have used it on multiple occasions, and it does work, just be sure you do not have any allergies.

High-quality tools

The U.S. has seen a 36 percent drop in tool and die shops in the past few years and the majority of our tools are being made overseas. Most of the tools made in countries like China are low quality and tend to not last. In a collapse environment, a broken tool could mean disaster.

I've noticed a dwindling supply of high-quality U.S.-made tools the past few months. If you can find them, they are expensive. Check garage sales and secondhand stores for older U.S.-made tools for a discount or buy new if you can afford it. Try to have at least two of everything.

If you have a generator or a small solar power system you will be able to use power tools as well even during a national breakdown, so stock them. Even if you don't build, having some tools on hand for barter would be a good idea.

Chest freezer

Chest freezers are back, but for months they were impossible to find. If you don't have one, GET ONE NOW, even if it's small. Smaller freezers use minimal power and can be hooked up to solar and being able to freeze foods for long-term storage is a huge advantage during a crisis situation.

Take notes from the previous lockdown event; whatever disappeared before will probably disappear again at the first sign of trouble. Anything from another government lockdown attempt to economic instability could trigger another rush.

Car parts

Critical car parts from electronics to brake pads were disappearing last year and I believe this will happen again this year. With shortages in computer ships for newer vehicles, the used car market is exploding, and people are buying up whatever they can find. This means car parts for repairs are going to be harder to find this year. Expect long wait times for parts unless you have them set aside.

I would store parts that are more likely to suffer wear and tear, such as shocks, U-joints, brake pads and sensors that are vital to the function of the engine, as well as an extra set of tires. Also, have enough gasoline and oil to keep your car operational for emergencies. Gasoline prices will likely continue to rise through the summer.



Ammo

This might seem obvious at this point, and if you haven't stocked ammo by now after years of hearing me warn about it then you are probably kicking yourself hard. But all is not lost. There is STILL some ammo out there in the major calibers, including 5.56, .308, 9mm, etc. You are going to pay a premium for it (at least twice what you would have paid a year ago), but trust me, the prices are nowhere near as high as they are going to go next year.

Think that $1 per round is too high for 5.56?  Try $5 per round or more a year from now. I am already seeing this in certain calibers such as 30-30 Winchester, which last I checked was selling at up to $60 for a box of 20 hunting rounds.

If you want to get into reloading, forget it. You aren't going to find any supplies at a price that makes it worth it. Some powders are selling for $80-$90 for a single pound. Primers are selling for $240 for a box of 1000.

So, buy what you can and don't expect prices to go back to normal, ever. In fact, I don't think we will be able to buy ammo normally after 2021. There will only be what is traded in barter markets or "black markets."   Check websites like Ammoseek to make your search easier.

AR-15 and AK-47 parts

Grab a set of extra AR-15 or AK-47 parts if you own these rifles, including bolt assembly parts, trigger assembly parts, springs and takedown pins. I am noticing a dwindling supply of parts on the market right now and I think this issue will continue to worsen.

Body armor

Body Armor is still around, but prices are rising quickly, and delivery times are long. Most manufacturers will not have any ballistic plates ready until July. High-end ceramics and lightweight armor are incredibly expensive right now. AR500 steel plates are still cheaper, but very heavy of course. Every able-bodied person that plans to defend their home or town should have at least one set of plates and a plate carrier in their personal stock. Soon all body armor will be gone if my predictions are correct.

To truth and knowledge,

Brandon Smith

->>>We are now living through the initial stages of hyperinflation and the collapse of the debt-based dollar, as prices on nearly everything continue to skyrocket by the day. The massive printing of trillions of dollars by the Federal Reserve -- and catapulting of that money into the economy via "stimulus" handouts -- is overheating demand for commodities like wood, copper, aluminum, and iron.

P.S. Hiding your stuff (either in legit "hides" in your home or buried "caches") has a LOT of advantages for the modern prepared citizen - IF you do it right!

Unfortunately, most people fall prey to the same old 
dumbass myths about "survival caching" and don't take it seriously.

FEMA is a somewhat controversial government agency. Some people love FEMA because they bring food and supplies after a disaster. Other people hate them because they don’t bring enough food and supplies after a disaster (or not quickly enough).

 Some people say FEMA is inefficient and a waste of tax money. Other people argue that they wouldn’t be so inefficient if they were properly funded. But whatever you think of FEMA, the people working there want you to be prepared.

 Why? Because the more prepared you are, the less you’ll rely on them for help when disaster strikes (and they can only help so many people)...

Panic buying has slowed, and stores have adjusted hours to allow employees time to clean and re-stock shelves. Yet the signs on store shelves that ask customers to limit purchases of toilet paper, cleaning supplies, and certain foods remain as a stark reminder of recent shortages.

 

Now, with cases of COVID-19 spiking in many parts of the country, a troubled economy, and civil unrest that likely will continue through election time, we are learning that shortages may become a fact of life. Our nation’s supply chain continues to be vulnerable to disruptions that may come in waves, just like the virus itself.

 

We can learn from some of the lessons of early pandemic buying. Did you build up the recommended 14-day quarantine supply of essentials back in March? If so, it is time to restock while you still can. Focus on foods and supplies that you usually use. Just make sure you have enough to last for several weeks...
