Michael T. Klare
warns us to,
“Get ready for a rocky year. From now on,
rising prices, powerful storms, severe droughts and floods, and other
unexpected events are likely to play havoc with the fabric of global
society, producing chaos and political unrest.
It’s not surprising then
that food and energy experts are beginning to warn that 2011 could be
the year of living dangerously - and so could 2012, 2013, and on into
Just weeks into the New Year things are not
looking so good with rising prices already threatening to devastate a great
part of humanity.
Klare says we should already be able to,
“hear the first rumblings about the tenuous
economic recovery being in danger of imminent collapse.”
So we might as well get ready, right?
more are saying that a ‘perfect storm of issues’ will bring widespread
starvation, rioting, cultural collapse and a decent into urban hells that
war zones often become. They are speaking about
food prices rising by 50 per
cent over the next decade when we are lucky if we do not see that in the
next year or two with world agriculture being gutted by the dramatic weather
and reserve currency rich nations willing to dip into the till to scoop up
dwindling food stocks.

There is so much talk about
extraterrestrials these days
even at rich
man’s conferences. Sure they have been here all along and sure they have all
the answers and we should trust them even after their decade’s long
cooperation with the American military.
No amount of manic optimism is going to change reality as it presents itself
to us through the months or years ahead. And we don’t need huge solar
flares, polar shifts, tidal waves of immense proportion, or earthquakes to
sustain this view though we might get these plus some dramatic volcanic
eruptions just to light up the skies with fireworks as the magnetic polls

Tsunamis of different types are dead ahead but most first world citizens
have mostly known tremendous prosperity all of their lives, so they can’t
conceive of what it will be like to go through difficult times.
Americans have been conditioned to believe that while we may have brief
"recessions" once in a while, in the end their economy will always get
better and the good times will continue to roll. That has changed but don’t
tell them about it because they don’t want to know for it’s too painful to
understand and appreciate.
Bank of England chief Mervyn King: standard of living to plunge at fastest
rate since 1920s.
“Mr. King claims he cannot "prevent the squeeze" for
everyday people, while London traders go home with multi-million dollar
bonuses. The main take-away from that is not even that the "standard of
living is plunging" at its fastest rate in almost a century, it’s that the
standards of honesty and dignity, of how to build a society, are plunging.
Corruption and fraud have free rein. King’s right when it comes to the end
result, though, of course: the British future comes dressed as misery,”

“The World Economic Forum ahead of its high-profile
annual meeting in Davos, the organization claimed that the global economy
will need access to an additional $103 trillion in “credit” to sustain
normal economic growth. It should be noted that the term “credit” is
synonymous with the word “money.”
Therefore, a less deceiving way to explain
this report could be that the World Economic Forum is calling for over $100
trillion in new money. This proposed $103 trillion of fresh “credit” - or
money - will be backed up by nothing. The question naturally arises: How
will the creation of more “debt” help our debt-ridden global economy?”
The miracle of credit and debt is coming to an
and the parasites are looting the system for a final time.
Present government intervention on a
multi-trillion dollar scale is the only thing preventing a worldwide
collapse into a new great depression.
Without the bailouts in the United
States, Europe and Japan we would all be collectively going over the falls
in a barrel held together with spit and straw. Japan this week actually did
as their debt rating has been downgraded tanking their currency.
But hey, if I get some of this funny money handed on a silver platter what
the heck the bankers say. But if the value of paper money gets reduced to
the value of toilet paper everyone loses except those smart enough to get
into gold, silver and hard assets free from debt.
Martin D. Weiss PhD is shouting loudly this week
that the collapse of the
tax-free bond market has arrived.
“This crisis is
no longer something you hear about strictly from us and a handful of others;
it has now burst into the headlines with the sweeping force of a giant

now - and it’s accelerating.”
The reality is that several events are converging with any of them alone
holding the potential to bring down the entire financial structure of the
Western world and perhaps the entire world.
Imagine if they all hit together
what a perfect and overwhelming storm it will be. Those who hold the reins
of power know it. They are not stupid and are playing the Pipe Pipers horns
Any fool, at this point, understands that without the unlimited capacity to
create and spend funny money, the United States is already a well-cooked
goose. The same can be said about Europe and of course Japan. With every
trillion of new credit (debt) money created we sink further into the abyss,
into a black hole there is no returning from.

Eric de Carbonnel is again warning the world
“Spiking food prices will
likely cause competitive currency appreciation.
Foreign exchange reserves
exist for just this time of emergency.
Central banks around the world will
lower domestic food prices by either directly selling off their reserves to
appreciate their currencies or by using them to purchase grain on the world
market. Appreciating a currency is the fastest way to control food
inflation. A more valuable currency allows a nation to monopolize more
“When a nation appreciates its currency and starts consuming more of the
world’s resources, it leaves less for everyone else. So when china
appreciates the Yuan, food shortages worldwide will increase and prices
everywhere else will jump upwards.
As there is nothing that breeds social
unrest like soaring food prices, nations around the world, from Russia, to
the EU, to Saudi Arabia, to India, will sell off their foreign reserves to
appreciate their currencies and reduce the cost of food imports.
to this, China will sell even more of its reserves and so on. That is
competitive currency appreciation.”
This all contradicts the reports of currency races to the bottom because
when the value of a currency goes up imports flood and overwhelm local

“Since America’s modern
social welfare democracy is not the product of enlightened rational,
accumulated decision-making, America’s leaders will be unable to re-design
it for the new conditions it faces.
Instead, this social welfare democracy

In other words, don’t expect the US government to reduce
its deficits and bring its finances under control voluntarily. It will take

Meanwhile the feds are destroying the currency and the credit of the world’s
largest economy in what most people believe is a rearguard delaying action.
It is my belief that those at the top know full well what is in store for
the world’s populations and are playing their cards accordingly.
