The winds of war are now blowing around the world. One day we will look back on these days with longing as one would look back on the gentle breezes of summer as the hurricane blows outside.
The winter season of the fourth turning is increasing with intensity as most people are fooled into believing that summer is just a few days off. When the winds become deadly and the snow begins to pile up, many will not be prepared to care for themselves. They will find themselves helpless and unprepared for this new weather system. Many will die and many more will suffer as they are cut off from the supplies and materials they depend on for normal living. They will become immobile and have little communication to tell them what to do. When the weather has them at their most vulnerable, the wolves will begin to show up at their door.
It cannot be over emphasized as to the amount of danger America is facing. We are being systematically cut off and separated from our allies and will eventually stand alone to face the fury of the hurricane that approaches. We are currently being set up to take a fall that some hope will be the end of this nation as we know it. The treason and treachery being perpetrated on this nation is a result of the mutation of the population from ants to grasshoppers. We are about to get exactly what we voted for and most people do not understand what that means.
Our birthright has been sold for a hand full of magic beans that will turn out to be rancid leftovers from someone’s failed business adventures. The wealth this nation has amassed over the decades is rapidly dwindling and will suddenly disappear in its entirety as the nation sleeps one night in the near future. The masses will awake one morning in a strange new land that holds no future for them or their children. They will be dumbstruck as to how they got there. The warnings will have been dismissed as insane talk by delusional people that don’t conform to societies norms.
It will be these few delusional, insane people that will determine the future of the once great nation. They will be the only ones that understand the dangers and are prepared to deal with the deadly winter weather. When the snow piles up they will have supplies and heat. When the wolves appear at the door they will have the weapons to fight them off. When the winds blow away the shelters of society the few will be safe in their structures reinforced to handle the tempest.
Those that deny the coming weather will be laid naked before it and will pay the price. No amount of facts or pleading will change the mind of most of these grasshoppers until it is too late.
There is a storm approaching and measures must be taken before it is too late to prepare. Just as you would prepare for a hurricane, the population must lay in stores of food and supplies to maintain their standard of living for the duration of the destruction. They must make sure they are in a safe location that will not get brown away or inundated with water from the storm surge. They must have the means to provide heat and cook food when the power system goes down. They must be able to protect themselves from any wolves that appear in any form. They must be prepared to rebuild after the storm passes. They must be prepared to weather this storm for 10 to 20 years until it blows itself out.
War is being fomented in the Middle East and in Europe and when it comes the U.S. will be hard pressed to survive it. Our military is being downsized, weapons systems are being reduced and many senior commanders are being fired for dubious reasons at best. The civil population is being systematically impoverished while government operatives tell them the nation is strong and getting stronger. Our manufacturing base has been dismantled and over 17% of our food is imported today. We have bankers that are stealing hard assets with fiat funny money and plan to steal peoples savings with new government regulations and laws. We are on the verge of losing reserve currency status and our banking system as we know it.
We are being inundated by foreigners that seek government entitlements and refuse to assimilate the American culture or language further dividing the civil population into domestic tribes hostile to one another. We have terrorist training camps within our borders and a lack of border control. We have members of the Muslim Brotherhood in the highest levels of our government and leaders that are ignorant at best and treasonous at worst.
In 1996 Thomas Chittum wrote a book called Civil War Two where he describes the breakup of America into ethnic regions. Many of the things he wrote about are evident today in society and spell doom for this nation as it is, even if we were not threatened with world war we would be headed for balkanization. The increasingly dysfunctional nature of this nation as it is will provide its citizens with many difficulties to overcome in the coming years.
War is coming to the world and to America on many levels and it cannot be stopped. The best anyone can do is to prepare and try to stay out of the way of the most serious fighting and bide their time until they can get the upper hand in their locality. The world is about to change in a very radical way and many are not prepared for it either physically or mentally. The forecast has been given and the storm flags are up.

Richard Russell made an interesting statement recently. He believes wealth trumps income and after thing about it, I have to agree. Many people today do not understand the difference between wealth and income. They think one equates to the other.
When people look at someone else today they immediately try to determine how much they make as a way to determine how wealthy they are. While it is true that the more you make, the easier it is to accumulate wealth, that is not a guaranteed outcome. What you do with your money is more important than how much you make in most cases.
The psychological aspect of income is all most people immediately respond to. A recent study indicates that most women will not even consider dating a man that does not have a steady job. While there are exceptions, this indicates that most women see income as the most important element when it comes to finding a mate. While having a job is one indicator of potential wealth, it is not the only defining one. There are many people today making over $100k per year and find it difficult to survive because they spend more than they make.
On the flip side, how many wealthy old men do you see with beautiful young wives? If you see a well dressed man throwing around hundred dollar bills and getting into a limo, few people ask if he has a job. They only see a wealthy person and respond to that perception. This is getting off the track a bit but is something to think about.
Wealth is a matter of what manages to “stick” to an individual over the course of time. I actually know someone that inherited around 50 million dollars some years ago. Within 10 years it was all gone and he had nothing to show for it. As unbelievable as that sounds, it is a true story.
Someone that makes $10k a year and is careful with their funds can actually have more wealth within a few years than someone making $50k a year and spending freely trying to live like their neighbors. As I have said before, wealth is not the paper assets you have but the physical things you buy with it. This includes knowledge. As Benjamin Franklin once said, “when a man pours his wallet into his head, no one can take it from him”. Knowledge is a form of wealth that you can spend over and over again and never run out.
Getting back to the wealth trumps income statement, it is obvious over time that the amount of money that sticks to you is independent of income and ultimately determines your wealth. This is why wealth is ultimately more important than income on many levels. Your income can be cut off at any time and leave you with nothing but bills you cannot pay but wealth is already in your hands and being used every day in the form of physical goods to maintain your current standard of living.
You don’t need income when you have sufficient real wealth. Real wealth is what allows you to sleep at night no matter how good or bad the economy is. That is something someone with a safe full of gold or a self sufficient homestead knows. Granted, some income is necessary these days if for nothing more than to pay taxes but the need for income is greatly reduced when you have real wealth that provides the things you need to survive from day to day in a nominal state of comfort.
For those that contemplate the future with dread as the economy sinks ever lower, it is important to realize what has the most impact on your economic future. Making sure that much of the income you get will stick will make a larger impact on your standard of living than anything else. You can try to wing it through life as most people do or you can sit down and decide how to leverage the funds you get and amass true wealth to insure you can take care of your family no matter what the economy does in the future. How much you make is not as important as what you do with it.

For those keeping up with the economic game of bumper cars we are playing, it seems likely that money printing will continue to the point of possible hyperinflation at some point. It is not a foregone conclusion but it seems likely. In that event what is the individual to do?
Some that have seen this possibility have come to realize that holding large amounts of debt before hyperinflation hits would allow them to pay off this debt with basically worthless currency and come out way ahead in the wealth game. That works in theory but how about in reality?
The bankers and politicians control the money supply and are even now cashing in their paper wealth for tangibles that are actually worth something. These people want it all and you can be assured of one thing. They will take the people to the cleaners before they are done with their redistribution of wealth.
Some may find themselves in a position to come ahead during any hyperinflation but they will be few and far between. The majority will not be allowed to come ahead at the bankers expense. The bankers after all created all of this easy credit that everyone uses and the sole purpose is to use it to separate the population from the hard assets that exist.
For those with substantial wealth accumulated, the first priority is to steal that paper wealth from the people. With that wealth gone they will not be able to preserve the hard assets they have that are not fully owned yet. Once that paper wealth is gone the bankers will need to inflate the money supply and force the majority into default on their assets. In a hyperinflation paychecks will not be able to keep up with rising prices and people will slowly fall behind until they lose it all.
For those that continue getting paid every week, the inflating pay will eat away at the debts faster and faster. To avoid losing real money, the bankers may index debts in order to prevent losing the leverage they created from nothing. When you index you basically increase the value of the debt at the same rate as inflation.
For those that say this will not work because they have a contract with the bank fixing the payment I can only say, do you really think these people will let you get over on them. These are the people that own the government and change the rules on a daily basis when it suits their needs. All that needs to happen is the government pass a law allowing the banks to index all debts and it will be a done deal.
I am not saying this will happen, but it could happen so you need to think about that and incorporate it into any plans you make to get through a currency collapse. If your plan is simply to pay off debt with devaluing currency and they index, you will not be in any better position than everyone else.
One way some will come out ahead is by having their excess wealth in precious metals. These assets will increase at or above the rate of inflation and allow the holders to maintain their buying power. The U.S. called in the gold in 1933 and could do it again but it is not likely. The main reason is that in 1933 gold was still part of the money supply and was held by the general population in large amounts. Very few people hold gold today and most of the ones that do are the very people that make the laws and they will not shoot themselves in the foot.
They may place a tax on any precious metals that are sold and use that as a way to control the smaller holders of metals but a house to house confiscation is not likely unless they just happen to target you for some other reason and find some in your possession and decide to take it. Ultimately, any paper currency only has the value that those printing it will give you. Metals can be used worldwide and have universal value. That is what makes metals more appealing than paper.
If currencies are destroyed in the future you can be assured that the perpetrators have a plan in place to prevent the majority from profiting from it on any large scale. Those that create the credit only care about owning everything they can get their hands on. Their greed knows no limits. With ownership of all assets comes complete control of the population. That is the end game for many. For those that see danger on the horizon it only makes sense to look ahead and plan for any contingency that may cost you everything you have.

Recently, Casey Research carried an article on some obscure ideas Thomas Jefferson wrote to colleagues about. When the new constitution was finished he knew they had failed to create a perfect document. By 1810 he felt sure that there would be problems stemming from the constitution they had written and set about to provide ideas to fix the inherent problems with it. It has been called Jefferson’s Hundreds.
The regulatory structure we now have has morphed from the small government one that was created into a behemoth that is all encompassing and intrusive into individuals lives. This has come about due to the large voting blocks that have risen to power that now control the national direction. In Virginia, Fairfax County is a good example. This one county has the power to determine the outcome of state elections regardless of the people in the majority of the rest of the state.
The people in flyover country know this problem well. The politics in this nation have led to a small number of cities and states having a disproportionate amount of control over the rest of society. One of the things that keeps this reasonably in check during national elections is the electoral collage. This helps to keep a handfull of states from controlling all the rest but even that system is under attack.
Many now want to eliminate the electoral collage and go to a simple majority vote. If that happens it is easy to look at population densities and determine that only a handful of coastal states would be sufficient to override the will of the rest of the nation. This is close to becoming reality. It is no secret why the Democrats pour so much money into states like California, New York and Illinois. These states have large populations that are beholden to government handouts and they vote appropriately.
To buttress this type of corruption Jefferson suggested dividing the nation into smaller units than even counties. He suggested breaking it down into units of one hundred people each. This hundred person ward would in effect be its own sovereign entity or republic. It would only give the powers to state and federal governments that IT decided to cede to them. This ward would have its own leadership, school, justice of the peace, constable, captain of the militia and infrastructure that it needed to take care of itself.
While I like the idea, I think a unit of 200-300 would be more functional today but the idea is the same. Small groups that retain their full sovereignty would be difficult to corrupt like they are today. Units that small have the advantage of knowing and living near the leadership and can deal with corrupt officials face to face on a daily basis when necessary. One corrupt ward would have little effect on other wards due to their separate governing bodies.
You could still have counties, states and national governing bodies to deal with larger issues but the power would be retained in the individual units. It would also eliminate the redistribution of wealth from producing units to non-producing units which is a major cause of the corruption in society. Every ward would be responsible for its own well being. I also feel giving these individual wards one electoral vote each would go a long way toward more equitable elections at the state and federal level for offices such as President, U.S. Senator, Governor and state attorney general. State senators and representatives and U.S. Representatives could still be elected by majority votes.
If this nation enters another civil war in the future, I believe this type of governing structure will come about out of necessity as communities struggle to survive the destruction and protect themselves from the inevitable lawlessness that would follow. Small communities creating their own laws and institutions to protect their property and way of life is the only way forward if freedom and private property rights are to survive the current course we are now on.
Crony capitalism and rigged elections have led to the reigns of power being concentrated in a small number of hands. This is not only dangerous to society in terms of freedom but also in financial terms as wealth and hard work are siphoned off for the benefit of the few at the cost of the many. The decentralization of power is the only way to remove the sociopaths that now control our destinies. This was evident to Jefferson in his day.
Letter to William B. Giles, 1825:
I see with the deepest affliction, the rapid strides with which the federal branch of our government is advancing towards the usurpation of all the rights reserved to the States, and the consolidation in itself of all powers, foreign and domestic; and that too, by constructions which, if legitimate, leave no limits to their power.
Today when any county or state attempts to stand up to the corrupt policies dictated to us from national podiums, they are confronted with the only things that can be used against them. They are first threatened with the termination of federal funds and if that does not work the threat of physical force is used. Usually, the simple threat of loss of funds is sufficient to end the revolt as local governments are addicted to federal money like a heroin addict to drugs.
Until local governments free themselves from the financial chains of government subsidies and grants, and they develop their own economies and armed forces, will they be free from the tyranny that seeks to totally subdue them. Only when local communities have the ability to say NO will they regain their birthright.

In the opening scenes of Gone With The Wind, Rhett Butler stated that the only things the south had plenty of was slaves and cotton. As inflammatory as that may sound, he was only stating an unspoken truth. The north had massive steel mills, factories, rail roads and raw materials to wage an effective fight. The south was lacking in all of these areas. To anyone contemplating a civil war, these lessons should not be lost to history.
As I’ve written about before, you need more than just soldiers to fight a war. You need a good logistics base to support those fighters. For every trigger puller on the front line you have ten to fifteen support troops behind the lines supplying those troops. Behind those support troops you have many civilians that produce the goods that are used by the troops.
I keep hearing people ask why these so called patriots are not out protesting the government and trying to change things in this country. I think the answer may be that these patriots know history and do not want to repeat past failures. They know this will probably end in all out war with the government before it is over. That means these people are using this lull before the storm to actively prepare their logistics base and coordinate future needs while they can. They cannot do that if they put a target on their back by being out in public saying what they really think.
When the south finally capitulated, they were short of war materials and literally starving to death. That fact needs to sink in real good with those that don’t know history and expect some sort of conflict in this nation in the future. This is why prepping is so important today. Simply having some food and ammo may not be enough if you are one of the many that will become the front line in the future.
If another civil war breaks out in America, the front line fighters may not have the luxury of large support elements. They may be forced to be their own support and as such need to store and develop the necessary logistics base they can draw on when the time comes. This includes the ability to produce basic and critical supplies from scratch at their location.
This is one reason I believe the government is trying very hard to prevent self sufficiency in this nation at this time. They want to take the guns, stop the storing of food and medical supplies and stop people from growing their own food. These are the logistics that will be needed in a national conflagration.
It is also important for those future fighters to realize that these are the things that the government fighters will also need. A large mechanized force requires food, fuel and ammo on a continuous basis. If that logistics train is disrupted or stopped, that force becomes an ineffective rabble with limited ability. If you don’t understand that just ask any German that fought at Stalingrad. Once they lost their ability to resupply their troops the men were finished.
The south did not lose the war because they were not dedicated enough or brave enough, they lost because they were overwhelmed by the enemy’s superior logistics. This is how a future aggressor will attempt to take control of this country. They will attempt to wear us down and bleed us dry until we no longer have the ability to fight. The only way to prevent that type of scenario is for Americans to have their own logistics base in place to maintain a fighting ability for an indefinite period of time. That will take planning and investment of time and resources. So, to all of you who are not busy protesting on the latest outrage from Washington, I understand. Just keep building and stacking.

What do you do when you don’t know what to do? This question may seen simple but many people have a hard time answering it when critical decisions are needed. We make critical decisions every day and most of them are in the normal course of daily life so we don’t think much about the process we utilized to make those decisions.
Every decision you make boils down to two things. Where you are and where you want to go. This may be defined and enacted in a physical, mental or emotional state. What store to shop at, what clothes to buy, what show to watch or how to respond to something that has happened.
Basically, you are here and you need to get over there. The problem many people face during times of stress is they suddenly find themselves lost and don’t know where they are now and where they need to go. This is the factor that can cause people to freeze up or run in the wrong direction.
When faced with the decision of what to do in a stressful situation the first thing you need to do is take a deep breath and calm down. When you are stressed your mind operates like a person in a flock of chickens trying to grab one. You find yourself going in all directions at once to no avail.
To make a rational decision you need to be calm and determine exactly where you are so to speak. Once you have identified your position you need to determine where you need or want to go from there. Your final destination is what you are trying to determine at this point. Everything in between is about how to get there. This is much like planning a trip across the country. You identify your destination and plan your route to get there with the fewest problems.
If you are in bed and suddenly hear someone breaking into your home the process begins to work. You identify where you are, in this case in a vulnerable position. You determine where you want to end up, in this case standing with the intruder lying on the floor with a gun pointed at him, either dead or alive does not matter. The rest of your thoughts are about how to get from here to there with the fewest problems.
If you decide to prep for some type of disaster, you will need to identify where you stand right now then decide what your ideal position would be going into the crisis. Having determined those two points, you develop a plan to get from here to there or at least as close as possible.
In many dangerous situations this process is a matter of seconds from start to finish. In some cases you will have plenty of time to think things through to determine the best course to take.
If you are in bed and you hear someone breaking into your home and realize it is a large number of DHS agents with the intent to harm you, you may decide your destination is anywhere but here and seek an immediate exit. In this case, hopefully you already have an escape plan.
In the military, soldiers do battle drills to practice their response to dangerous situations they may find themselves in to speed up their response time to insure a positive end result. You can do this too with many of the situations you may find yourself in. Having a plan to deal with situations you may find yourself in will help prevent a delay that may cost you your life.
By doing these battle drills you provide yourself with a lot of maps to get from here to there depending on the situation and can immediately pull up one of these maps and follow it without having to analyze too much at the time.
When you are worried about some type of disaster or crisis that may take place and you don’t know what to do first, just take a deep breath and draw yourself a map. Determine where you are starting from, where you want to go and how to get there. You can then decide what you need to take with you. Even if you are not physically going anywhere, you can still plan it just like a trip. Your final destination will be an image of what you want things to look like or function like once you get there.
Indecision can kill in a crisis and you don’t want to ever be left wondering what to do once in that situation so now is the time to think about these things while you have the time. When confronted with something new and unknown, use the same process to think things through to find a quick solution to your situation. When everything else fails, you need to rely on your brain so exercise it accordingly.

The threat of a pandemic is ever more present today than it was one month ago. The spread of a pandemic through American communities has some potential to be used for nefarious purposes. With the distrust in government today, it is natural to be suspicious of how this event is being handled at higher levels.
Normal everyday people are screaming for a quarantine of people from infected regions of the world but the government seems reluctant to do that simple thing to stop the spread of this disease. That in itself begs the question if this is intentional and part of some larger plan.
There are those that would say yes. Incompetence is one thing but those in power do not get where they are by being stupid. There is a plan here and it does not bode well for freedom loving people in this country. The purchase of billions of rounds of ammo, the militarization of local police and government agencies, the intelligence gathering by government of everyone, the construction of detention camps, the stocking of coffins and the contracts FEMA has with foreign governments to provide people for emergencies are some of the warning signs that we are faced with today and we ignore them at our own peril.
If a pandemic were to get lose in the nation most people would look to government for answers and help but there are those that would stay as far away from the government as possible. These are the self sufficient people that government fears the most. They have the supplies and knowledge to stay alive when most others won’t and that is reason enough for the government to get them out of the way. They are potential impediments to total government control. So what might the feds do to eliminate this potential threat to their power?
The first thing needed is to identify these people and assess their potential threat to the government. That has been ongoing for several years now with doctors asking about firearms ownership and new regulations to get child protective services into homes to insure the safety of the children.
The second thing is to verify the location of the individuals home. After all, you cannot do anything to someone unless you can find them. This was done in part during the last census when workers recorded the GPS coordinates to individuals homes and it is said that the postal service now scans the front and back of letters to capture the addresses on them not only to tag your address but to see the location and identity of those you are in communication with.
Once you have the enemy identified you want to destroy, neutralize or suppress their abilities to work against you. This can be done in many ways. The ostracizing of the prepper community and the listing of preppers, veterans and Christians as domestic threats by fusion centers has forced these people to try to keep a low profile while they prepare for future events.
The final phase is to remove these people from society completely. That is where we are now. There must be some coordinated way to separate these people from their supplies and their support networks.
With a pandemic the government has the excuse to conduct wellness checks on individuals to assess their condition. This will be done under the cover of containing the virus. The reality is that once it goes nationwide, the virus cannot be contained and these wellness checks can be used to remove those that the government wants out of the way. After all, what citizen would complain about the government removing someone that can infect the community. If the government has to get violent, no one will say anything so it is a good time to remove people for other reasons as well.
The health officials will force entry into homes to check individuals and when someone with firearms and ample supplies is found they can be labeled as infected and removed to camps with the sick. In the beginning those that know what is going on will resist and probably shoot at government workers that try to break through self imposed quarantine zones around their homes. This will lead to workers being escorted by armed security that will be able to assault homes and force entry. This is the future of gun control in America. It is the only way they could hope to accomplish it.
After these well individuals are placed in sick camps they will suffer one of three fates. They will either contract the disease and die, contract the disease and survive or not get sick at all. Those that survive will likely be kept at the camp to care for the sick that continue to come in. A pandemic would require tens of thousands of workers to tend to the sick and there are not enough to do that at this time so this is a likely answer. These healthy people would become forced labor for the government. If you do not think this is a possibility you need to read some of the executive orders now in effect. The government can conscript anyone during an emergency and use them as forced labor for free. These free laborers are expendable while trained medical personnel are not.
If the government wishes to maintain some type of healthcare system in the nation they will likely divert infected persons away from hospitals so that those locations can maintain operations. It would be necessary to maintain operational hospitals for the government workers and those that serve them. If hospitals were overrun with plague victims it would decimate the medical staff and completely collapse the medical system. The medical workers that did not die would stop showing up to work in many cases as an act of self preservation. Doctors and nurses are highly trained people and you cannot replace them easily.
Those forced laborers that are left after the pandemic is over can be utilized or eliminated as the government wants and is a good way to get trouble makers out of the way. This may not be the plan but it makes some sense. Its what I might do if I were in charge and had a certain agenda in mind.
A pandemic that scares the general population into submission can act as cover for many different events. It can be cover for the economic collapse that will surely arrive one day, it can be used as a money maker for pharmaceutical companies, it can be used to consolidate power by the government or it could be used to reduce the population which is the stated goal of some in society.
This article is meant to make you ask questions, not to frighten you so here are some things to think about in the days to come. Why did Crucell develop an Ebola vaccine in 2006 and now hides the fact? Why is GSK rushing another potential vaccine into production that will likely be mandatory for the general population? Why does FEMA have contracts with foreign governments like Russia to provide manpower in the event of a disaster in America? Why do we have executive orders that can turn the population into virtual slave labor even in times of peace? Why does the CDC have thousands of coffins on hand? Why do we have UN vehicles being prepositioned around the country? Why have local police been militarized? Why are preppers, veterans and Christians being demonized by the government? Why does the FED continue to destroy the dollar knowing what it will do to the country? Why is our southern border left open? Why is the government reluctant to stop people from infected areas from coming into the U.S.?
This outbreak may fizzle out and become nothing but if this black swan lands, it could be a world changing event. If the government does come for you one day, the only thing you can do is not be there when they arrive. At this time there are more questions than answers and some of the answers are not very comforting. One thing that is certain is that we are living in interesting times. Only time will tell how this will end.

For several years many people have had the opinion that the global elite have had a plan to kill off a significant portion of the worlds population and take complete control of the resources and people. The raping of the worlds financial assets by these people has insured that they must do something to cover their tracks in a way to avert repercussions on themselves from an irate population. A global holocaust that puts people in survival mode would lend itself nicely to the police state being erected to contain the people.
Dave Hodges has uncovered some evidence that a company named Crucell developed a fully effective Ebola vaccine in 2006. The CDC has patented the Ebola virus and can now demand to be paid royalties for any vaccine used against the virus. This means the Ebola virus is now the intellectual property of the CDC. There are reports of the government putting pressure on sectors that promote natural cures and health products that may stop or prevent this type of outbreak. Recent shipments of nano silver being sent to Africa have been blocked. This sounds like the elite protecting its investment.
If an enterprising group of people wanted to gain control of a country or even the world, a highly contagious and deadly virus would be a good weapon to use. When released into the population it would cause unmitigated chaos. It has the potential to collapse every major system people depend on for daily life. The healthcare system, energy, transportation, security, financial and food production of an entire country could be collapsed in a matter of months. In a previous article I noted that they war gamed a pandemic several years ago and one thing that came out was that once the economy shut down they had no idea how to start it up again.
Anyone that had the cure for this bug would be in the position to select who gets saved and who does not. That is the whole point of bio warfare. Kill the enemy while having the ability to protect your own troops. When the British had trouble with Indians in America they simply sent them small pox infected blankets and within a few weeks the Indians were ravaged with disease leaving them unable to effectively continue fighting.
There is a movie called ULTRAVIOLET that has some similar undertones to what might happen soon. The government created a virus that got out and infected some people. These people became the new enemy that allowed total government control. When these people were all but eliminated the government developed a new virus to release into the atmosphere and infect everyone else. This would force them to go to the government on a regular basis to get the necessary treatment to continue living.
Who can forget the mural at the Denver International Airport that depicts people dying at the feet of a soldier wearing a gas mask. This may be the future we have in store if this is the nefarious plan of some evil group seeking total control. If this is the plan I suspect it is only the first of a multi phase plan to wage global war and consolidate resources and land holdings for the select few. Any country infected with a deadly virus would be hard pressed to wage war or even protect its own borders against an enemy with immune soldiers.
There will no doubt be people that have natural immunity or access to natural cures that keep them healthy and these will likely be one enemy that government seeks out in the future. They cannot risk the failure to control some and prevent the control of all. The best thing that people can do at this time is to prepare for system wide failure if it should happen and educate themselves on natural remedies that are out of the control of government purveyors of ill health.
If Americans ever revolted this disease could give the government the means to control the population. Anyone who wanted the cure would have to succumb to the government healthcare system. This would leave the rebels outside the system and easier to identify.
Let us not forget that the government has promised trillions more to people than it will ever have the ability to deliver. There are only two ways to solve that problem. Either they can default on the promises in some form or they can eliminate the people that are supposed to get them. To default would cause riots and imminent danger for those in government so another way would be more palatable for them. Zbiginew Brezinski once gave a speech and said it is now easier to kill one million people than it is to control one million people. That may be part of the solution we have in store as time goes on. Obamacare will surely kill many in the years to come as healthcare is rationed and a good pandemic would help as well.
Here is another aspect of Ebola that no one has talked about. If this disease becomes rampant in America, it will most likely be picked up by other species of animals here. These animals may not die from Ebola but they can become carriers of it. With the disease spreading among the many animal species it may cause an untold number of mutations that have the capability to reinfect humans. Just like in Africa where some species now transmit the disease to humans, this could lead to Americans needing shots every year from Ebola just like they now need annual Flu shots for the prevalent strain that year.
This can also make the home production of meat almost impossible as individuals will not be able to afford the testing necessary to insure their flocks are Ebola Free. This can also put an end to hunting as we know it due to the infectious nature of this disease. This could make meat consumption in this country something only the rich and well connected will be able to afford as only government certified meat will be available for sale. The testing of this meat will raise the price considerably. That will probably make the corporations engaged in this type of activity very happy.
There are an untold number of problems this disease can cause in this country and that is the reason people should be afraid not only of the disease but of the government response to it. The government can actually make it much worse than it would otherwise be. With the lack of trust in government today the people have a great deal to be worried about. If we are entering the end game of some plot, we will most likely be inundated with multiple crises at once as time goes on. This will keep people off balance and looking to government for help. At this time people need to stay as informed as possible to keep ahead of the next planned crisis. Things will likely get worse from here so prepare yourself for that.

Have you ever asked a person why they work? If you have the answer will likely end with a statement that they need to pay for stuff. It’s a truism in the world we live in that you must pay for many of the things we need. Its this need to pay for more and more stuff that leads to the need for higher paying jobs.
This perceived need leads many to seek jobs they do not necessarily like but need to achieve this end result. The race for the almighty buck has many unintended consequences. It has been said that if you do not like your work, you will not like anything else about your life.
The pursuit of money leaves many people with a hollow void that is never filled and causes them to lash out at society in their discomfort. This is seen in the many cases of domestic abuse, road rage and general lack of politeness in society. In many cases the more the person makes, the more likely you are to see these traits.
What is missing in many peoples lives is the personal satisfaction they get from the feeling of accomplishment of something every day. The more personal satisfaction a person gets out of life, the more likely they are to be a happy person and in turn treat others with respect. This also helps to insure a healthy life that avoids many of the ailments that come with having a foul mood most of the day.
The feeling of accomplishment can come from very little things such as building or repairing something. Some of my most cherished accomplishments are things I did for free. Knowing I did something that had some value and served a purpose meant a lot to me personally. Doing that and making some money at the same time is just icing on the cake.
This is something many people in our fast moving world miss out on and it can cost them in the end. As society gets faster and money becomes the primary commodity in life, people can lose their self worth and determination. This is evident when something happens and they suddenly have no money to continue their current lifestyle. Money has replaced personal satisfaction as the cement that holds society together. When the money supply finally gives out, society will fall apart.
Having money is great because it allows you to do many things you could not do otherwise but it should not be the foundation of your existence. How many people have gotten divorced because of monetary problems? How many people have refused to get involved with someone else because they did not meet up to their monetary expectations?
Money has become all too important in society and when it goes away during economic crisis society cannot handle it. If you have a spouse that just says, don’t worry we can manage, after you have lost your job and have very little money to live on then they get it. They are saying their personal happiness does not depend on money to give them the personal satisfaction in life that they require.
This is the missing ingredient that the American society needs to get through the trying times ahead and we no longer have it. If we do not find it soon, the days ahead will be very miserable and very destructive as society tears itself apart searching to fill the void left by the destruction of money. When you can go day to day without money and feel happy about life, you are at a place that will allow you to get through most bad events in the right frame of mind. That frame of mind is what you need to solve the problems at hand and move on with your life. The lack of it will cause us to self destruct.
