Surviving the greatest crisis since WWII

   WWII was created by man and so is the coronavirus outbreak…as I rightfully told readers here a few weeks ago!

CV19 was formulated as a biological agent in a Chinese lab; it ‘escaped’ and there is speculation that was done purposely as a means of destroying the western economy.  So far, they’ve been successful. Some even speculate our own Democratic-Socialists are cheering this effort on in hopes that a recession will hurt Trump.  The media is fueling a lot of nonsense about Trump to aid in that effort.

At the very least, China kept quiet about the virus and more than 400,000 Chinese managed to fly into the USA before Trump closed off traffic to them and eventually Europe.  Despite this smart move, the Leftist press and Schumer tried to skewer Trump for this move. 

Indeed much of the progressive media, such as CNN, act as cheerleaders for predatory China while bashing our nation and its leaders. Readers of this blog know that for years I have sounded the alarm about China and have strongly urged that US firms bring manufacturing back home!

This virus was created with many new and ugly components: for example, it has the ability to mutate rapidly, it is highly contagious, it can spread without symptoms, etc.

The medical community, WHO in particular, failed to act in a timely fashion and even defended China’s handling of the outbreak.

The pandemic morphed into a global financial crisis with governors in America completely closing down economies overnight, placing millions out of work…the so-called bailout will only further weaken our nation but the socialists envision this as a means of furthering their control over the country, destroying our civil liberties in the process. The government will not protect you!

State governments in particular are creating an almost overnight Depression in the name of safety…livelihoods and businesses will be wiped out regardless of government bailouts. [the added funding for small business relief is being held up by Pelosi & Schumer].

Globalists may even push to eliminate ‘contaminated’ cash giving rise to a total electronic currency [the easiest way to track what citizens do or cut them off financially]. Some suggest the US government may even take control of the food supply [hopefully, you’ve stored up food and seeds]…

I won’t bother to rehash the death figures…each time one turns on the TV or radio, that is the lead story EVERY single day.

Travel domestically and internationally has been curtailed.  All travelers arriving in Israel, for example, will be quarantined for 14 days…the US will likely follow suit.

A Black Swan Financial Crisis Event

This China induced crisis, as planned, will have lasting negative effects on our nation.  Much of the globe has been in a huge speculative bubble which only needed an event such as this to burst that bubble.  Despite bailouts and the Fed cutting interest rates to zero, the stock market is in serious decline and as usual, most families have little or nothing to fall back on.

Despite the recent government shut down when it was demonstrated that even highly paid government workers failed to set aside an emergency fund or stockpile extra food and toiletries…people never seem to learn. Some are suggesting we now face a bear market which could last seven years…all economic activity around the globe is grinding to a halt. 

In MI, the governor laid off as much as 90% of the workforce overnight [except most government employees of course] but failed to prepare its Unemployment system to handle the massive influx of applicants.

Many major cities now look like something from a sci-fi movie-ghost towns!

Air traffic has declined by 45-90%, hotel rooms have high vacancy rates as theme parks and sporting events close. Everyone is experiencing challenges to its supply chains and food distribution via supermarkets is already beginning to resemble post war Germany or Russia.

We’ve learned that when Obama initiated a medicare tax on the medical industry, many chose China to produce medicines and other goods, leaving the US essentially naked.

My Advice

·         Accumulate cash, gold and silver, barter items such as ammo, medicine, liquor, toiletries, etc.

·         Get out of the stock market, Get out of Debt

·         Buy a few acres of land that has good soil and access to water-start a Liberty Garden

·         Practice safety as this is a manmade virus

Other Bits n Pieces

The $2.2 trillion coronavirus relief bill signed into law by President Trump increasingly looks like it will only be a starting point when it comes to the money Congress will pour into the battle against the pandemic.

The sweeping legislation approved by Congress in March was the largest rescue package in U.S. history, but lawmakers already are wrangling over new legislation to add to a small-business loan program created by the bill.
Retail sales dove nearly nine percent last month, another sign that the coronavirus is taking a big toll on the U.S. economy.

Everyone knows the frustration that comes with high utility bills, especially during financial hardship. The power bill, in particular, can get really bad in the winter or summer, depending on where you live. So what are some things you can do to lower your bills?

 There are many unique and creative projects that help combat the constant struggle to reduce energy consumption. These projects range from simple to quite innovative and can help reduce the cost of energy and water. So here they are, in no particular order.

 1. Rain Barrel - A simple DIY project that reuses rainwater has made its way into neighborhoods and even big cities. Rain barrels are a great way to collect the water that runs off of your home, garage, and outbuildings...

Make a Biogas Generator to Produce Your Own Natural Gas

Transform grass clippings, food waste and livestock manure into renewable biogas energy with a homemade biogas generator.

You can use many household organic “waste” materials to produce your own natural gas for cooking, lighting, and space and water heating. This gas, known as “biogas,” can also replace fossil-based natural gas to fuel an engine or an absorption cooling system, such as a gas refrigerator or chiller. Some gasoline engines are designed for or can be modified for use with natural gas, propane or biogas. Diesel engines can accept up to 80 percent biogas.
