("Actual Title: Startling Evidence that Central Banks and Wall Street Insiders Are Rapidly Preparing for Something BIG." This was too long, so modified the title for FR.)
If you want to figure out what is going to happen next in the financial markets, carefully watch what the insiders are doing. Those that are connected have access to far better sources of information than the rest of us have, and if they hear that something big is coming up they will often make very significant moves with their money in anticipation of what is about to happen. Right now, Wall Street insiders and central banks all around the globe are making some very unusual moves. In fact, they appear to be rapidly preparing for something really big. So exactly what are they up to?...
Why Is George Soros Selling So Much Stock And Buying So Much Gold?
Central Banks are also hoarding gold.
Rampant Insider Selling
Why Does The U.S. Government Need So Much Ammunition?
(Excerpt) Read more at shtfplan.com ...
Or is this "chicken little doom-sayers" at their worst?
It’s entirely possible that the gov is hoarding ammunition because they’re afraid manufacturers will be INUNDATED with orders from the GENERAL PUBLIC surging just prior to the election.. And also AFTER if 0bama is re-elected (just threw up in my mouth a bit, sorry).
The article forgot to include Soros’ spanish company has been contracted to count the votes.
Buy early, buy often. Good bulk prices here: (I am not affiliated with them. Fastest shipping I have found on the ‘net. same day if before noon.)
I would point out that Soros is a multibillionaire. A shift of 50 or 100 million in his portfolio doesn’t have to signify anything except a rebalancing of a few percent.
That said, there’s plenty to make me nervous about the future.
Did you read the article? If not, did you know that the Social Security Administration bought 174,000 bullets? And not just any kind but hollow point bullets, designed to cause as much damage to internal organs as possible.
If this was for the military I would have no qualms, but the Social Security Administration?
Has nothing to do with the elections.
Gov’t ammno is a false flag.
Never before have the world markets been as corrupted as they are now.
We have Gov’t’s, central banks from around the world that, rightfully so, have been trying to fight off deflation, with the hope the the inevitable INFLATION can be controlled.
It’s a losing battle and only a matter of time.
Stay away from ‘bulk’ gold - or any other form of gold that is not ‘high numismatic value US gold coins’ (the only form of gold that the US federal government can not confiscate.)
Bulk lead at that site.
I’ve posted in the past few months about the crumbling European banking situation, and if they slide into economic chaos, we will shortly follow.
At this point I’m suspicious that the trigger will be an Israel/Iran hot war, resulting in a stateside Muslim uprising. Once bombs start going off within the U.S., the government makes a move towards martial law and all Hell breaks loose.
“The article forgot to include Soros spanish company has been contracted to count the votes.”
LOL - hey, I expect demand for that commodity to rise BIG! 8^)
Why would you have no qualms?
Isn't the use of hollow point bullets by the military banned by the Hague Convention? Or is that only when used in international warfare?
The certain catastrophes are well known. And I’m sure there are some others happening before then, that will soften the system up for the big disasters.
1) December 31, 2012, the date of the expected implementation of government spending reductions and expiration of a large number of tax cuts, called “Taxmageddon”.
2) The Super Committee’s failure to reach agreement has triggered automatic, across-the-board cuts in all non-exempt programs (referred to as sequestration) to take place beginning in January 2013.
3) The Democrats have made it clear that if they lose the election, they will as lame ducks permit these catastrophes to take place, and when the Republicans take office on January 15, the Democrats in the senate intend to block all efforts to stop the collapse.
So the bottom line is that there will be half a month of collapse at a minimum, which will probably cause at least an international depression as Europe reacts. The saving grace is that the Republicans will fight hard to prevent a collapse of the US economy.
Huh! I didn’t know the military couldn’t use hollos points.
Thanks for that info.
Who knows? My crystal ball is busted. If you get a good reading on yours, please let me know.
I will say there are two components to being an astute financal prognosticator — the obvious one being WHAT is going to happen and the other one being WHEN.
If you don’t have WHEN nailed, then in some sense you’re just predicting the obvious (and therefore assured of being right eventually), because no matter WHAT you predict, economies/commodities/assets DO go up and they DO go down. Eventually. Been that way for thousands of years.
In my own planning I’m trying to allow for all the possibilities I foresee as best as I can. It’s not easy and I’m far from confident that I have it all right.
I hope you do well for you and yours.
What makes me think that there isn't anything the government can't confiscate--if it can steal your earnings?
Post #27 has some good links.
I do not consider “goverment spending reductions and expiration of tax cuts”, or “across-the-board cuts in all non-exempt programs” to be catastrophic.
Those are a good start to over-hauling our socialized, bloated government.
I hope the GOP has representative oversight on that operation. That might be why Soros stopped his push for the Secretary of State leftists.
I had suspected that the many large governmental ammunition purchases were designed more to restrict private sector supply than anything, but I’m wondering now if state employment security commissions aren’t doing the same.
Besides, I think the stock market--knowing that Obama is about to go down in flames this November--is ready for a takeoff that could send the stock market to stratospheric heights, especially if the Romney/Ryan income tax overhaul is going to be anything like what Steve Forbes proposed in 1996!
Logically if they can confiscate any of your property, they can confiscate any of the rest of your property
IF we are lucky enough to kick this lousy commie out of the Oval Office we're still in a world of hurt that HE is leaving this nation in.
Yea - maybe... but not without one hell of a fight first.
You do know, don’t you that obama is not only hiring 16,000 new IRS agents but have also ordered a bunch of shotguns
- Remington Model 870 Express, to be exact.
Done intelligently, yes. Done this way, it could be very bad. The assumption also has to be that Treasury and the FED will throw their hand in with the Democrats, if no other way than by ending their blatant manipulation of the stock market.
If the Muslims start bombing in this country we are going to see a lot of 7-11’s without clerks gas stations empty and hotels without registrars.
The people of the United States are not going to put up with Muslims and bombs, there are going to be a lot of dead Muslims.
Nothing but a chump would let their gold be confiscated ala 1932. After the confiscation back then, gold was quickly revalued and nearly doubled.
They will confiscate what is in your bank safe deposit box, etc. But they can’t confiscate for the whole world. The gold change in your pocket as you board the airliner will be a fortune overseas. Take the gold to China, buy their money, then convert it back to the new dollars before you head home.
Don’t feel like travel? There’s a Chinese buffet in my town. And one from India too. And a Vietnamese.
Those owners are from countries that ravenously consume gold. And they smuggle people in by the CONEX box load. Think they can’t move a few coins here and there?
LOL,, no, if they “call in the gold” and you have it in your possession, just stay quiet and watch for the options when it skyrockets.
Greece, Spain, Italy almost all of Europe is presently living on borrow money they can’t ever hope to repay and its merely a matter of time before the game of musical chairs they’ve be playing ends. How many countries can Germany prop-up before they too are swamped? Britain and France are already so weak that the Islamist they have allowed to invade them will most likely over run them when the time comes.
Here at home we find that the corner three card Monte dealer is more honest than most of the Too Big to Fail banks and investment houses. And face it the Monte dealer who scams a few hundred is a thousand times more likely to go to jail that the banksters that are stealing millions.
The game is so rigged now that the fraudsters dont even know how its going to play out. We are headed for some bad times, which is one of the reasons Ive been sounding the alarm. Its time that you either prepare to stand on your own beholden to no one or accept that you will be a serf dependent on others to provide your basic needs.
Check out Ferfals blog and Selcos blog despite what so many think it is NOT impossible for a modern country to quickly fall into chaos! Its happen before and it is happening now.
As for me I dont want to be beholden to anyone for providing what is needed for me and mine. I certainly dont want to have to kiss some gubberment third class bureaucratic to try and coax some help from them, I dont want some jack booted thug herding me in line and telling me where to stand, sit, eat or sleep. And last but not least I dont want to be shut up with a bunch of zombies and have to worry about not only trying to get basic necessities but having to fight to keep what I manage to get.
Some seem to think that prepping is foolish, so I ask you whats easier telling your children and loved ones why you prepared or explaining to them why you didnt?
But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he has denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever. 1 Timothy 5:8
But then someone has to stand on the bridge waiting for FEMA to bring them a bottle of water, an MRE and a warm blanket so as to provide the Network Anchors their background Money Shot. I wonder how that will workout for them?
I am not saying that things will turn Mad Max/Book of Eli, (With the possible exception of a brief time in a few of the larger big blue cities) but things could easily breakdown for 30 to 60 days during which basic supplies, goods and services stop, banking stops (No checks No Credit Cards, No Debit Cards so on...) now how many people do you think are ready for such?
And between those not ready and those who have always had the gubberment hand them everything what do you think the reaction will be?
Their reaction I think can be summed up in one of my favorite quotes:
Quark: Let me tell you something about Hew-mons, Nephew. Theyre a wonderful, friendly people, as long as their bellies are full and their holosuites are working. But take away their creature comforts, deprive them of food, sleep, sonic showers, put their lives in jeopardy over an extended period of time and those same friendly, intelligent, wonderful people... will become as nasty and as violent as the most bloodthirsty Klingon. You dont believe me? Look at those faces. Look in their eyes. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Siege of AR-558 (#7.8) (1998)
For those who are just starting or are old hands at prepping you may find my Preparedness Manual helpfull. You can download it at:
NOTE! THIS IS A FREE DOWNLOAD. I DO NOT MAKE ONE CENT OFF MY PREPAREDNESS MANUAL!
For those of you who havent started already its time to prepare almost past time maybe. You needed to be stocking up on food guns, ammo, basic household supplies like soap, papergoods, cleaning supplies, good sturdy clothes including extra socks, underwear and extra shoes and boots, a extra couple changes of oil and filters for your car, tools, things you buy everyday start buying two and put one up.
As the LDS say When the emergency is upon us the time for preparedness has past.
Or as the bible says: A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
NIV Proverbs 22:3
Lastly this for the doubters and the scoffers.
There is no greater disaster than to underestimate danger.
Underestimation can be fatal.
Yeah, I knew that about the shotguns.
Gold bug ping.
The way I see it, there’s three possibilities; One a high chance that the whole mess will blow-up if ‘Bama’ looses we already see the desperation growing among his followers. Two the pressure mounts to a point ‘Bama’ cracks goes scorched earth and action has to be taken directly against him to save the country and three ‘Bama’ wins and within months the man’s tyranny will reach a level that true patriots will not be able to stand.
I could be wrong, but that’s the way I see things.
Correction: the only form of gold that the US federal government has not yet confiscated.
If they want it, they will pass a law making it legal for them to confiscate it.
Last I read, the Chinese property market is collapsing. It was the Mother of All Bubbles, which actually put the U.S. housing bubble to shame. Speculators were placing a collective huge bet on urbanization accelerating: as is often the case with a compelling story, they overshot the mark.
The U.S. real-estate market started turning down in 2006, and the implosion got underway in '07. Remember those Bernanke foot-in-mouth moments? One of them came in late '07. He said the sub-prime implosion was "contained" - implying that he knew quite well that real estate was imploding, but that he didn't see what else was coming.
I'm sure that Soros thinks that this year is like 2007, and that next year will be another 2008. Only this time, the crisis epicentre will either be mainland China or Europe - possibly both.
If you're in the mood for a gamble, the best thing you can do is to stock up on cash. Yep, plain old cash. Hold it, sit on it, accumulate more of it. Then, sit back and wait to see how the China implosion plays out. If '13 ends up being another '08, then it'll be time to do a little shopping on the equity or gold markets. Even gold cratered, temporarily, when the S hit the F in October '08.
The reason why I peg this move as a gamble is because there's a chance that the next '08 will rip apart mainland China but not here. In that case, gold will go up and $1,600 will prove to be a bargain not taken. There also won't be any fire sales in stocks to take advantage of, outside of mainland China and/or Europe. Outside of turfs that are unfamiliar, unknown, and which might well be swamp and jungle.
Before signing off, I have to make a wee confession. I was a buyer in late October of '08 all through early '09, but my short-termism meant that I pulled the hook out of the mouths of the big fish. So, I have a bias in that I'm waiting for a second chance to do it right. That said, Soros is no dummy when it comes to speculating...
don’t forget NOAA, that’s right the WEATHER PEOPLE, just order a bunch of ammo as well.
Strictly speaking, the prohibition is “The Contracting Parties agree to abstain from the use of bullets which expand or flatten easily in the human body, such as bullets with a hard envelope which does not entirely cover the core, or is pierced with incisions. “, from the Hague Convention of 1899.
With terabuck deficits projected as far as the eye can see, we'll be joining them eventually.
A couple of years ago, the Department of Education bought a bunch of shotguns.
Of a particular model, “for compatibility with existing inventory”.
The Department of EDUCATION.
Staying away from bullion makes sense because these transactions can be tracked by US directly. I would also avoid buying gold using a credit card or other traceable payment. And certainly never buy non-bullion gold from Goldline simply because their prices are ridiculous. Before I knew better, I bought an AU 20$, 1oz, 1900s era for around $1800 when gold was selling for around $1100.
Best bet is to buy gold at coin shows with cash. You can go to multiple vendors and basically buy as much as you want.
“The Department of EDUCATION.”
I’m guessing you think that’s ironic...
Well, NOT under a socialist regime, such as the USA has become...
Cheer up - these regimes can only last for a lifetime or so. ;^)
“Always look on the bright side of life!”
Don’t forget to whistle.
‘Bama wins, GOP scapegoats Ryan, rinse, repeat.
Haven’t we already been through this show?
We know dems are going to cheat... They don't vote the dead intentionally - they vote the people who don't show up to vote. Since the dead never show up to vote, they're mixed in with the others.
The only way to stop this is to set up cameras in important swing districts and record the number of people going into vote versus the number of votes tabulated. The other way is to add fake names and see if they 'vote'...
I’ve been scrolling through FR all morning, but this has me over my limit. I am now going to Walmart to buy beer. And then I am going to drink it.
