Skip to comments.Martin Armstrong Warns Civil Unrest Is Rising Everywhere: "This Won't End Pretty"
Posted on 06/28/2014 7:46:16 PM PDT by Kartographer
People simply do not comprehend why and how the economic policies of the post-war era are imploding. This whole agenda of socialism has sold a Utopian idea that the State is there for the people yet it is run by lawyers following their own self-interest. The pensions created for those in government drive the cost of government up exponentially with time. The political forces blame the rich and this merely creates a class warfare with no resolution for the future. Even confiscating all the wealth of the so-called rich will not sustain the system. Consequently, we just have to crash and burn and start all over again.

As long as we’re armed, unrest will mainly hurt liberals,s o im not worried
The middle class has been drained of its savings, all the jobs are going to foreigners while prices are skyrocketing and the value of the dollar is falling.
Something has to happen. Or we’ll just slowly keep imploding like a Zimbabwe or Venezuela.
We are living in a powder keg with fuse lit.
And the Greek democracies before Rome and ....
There is nothing new under the sun.
We can be armed to the teeth but it will still affect us.
If ya can’t go to work or the grocery store with out being in danger...it will affect us.
I read a book a long time ago about the conflict in Sarajevo. There was a long bridge people had to go over to get to work. It was surrounded by snipers that would pick people off as they crossed TO GET TO WORK.
One of the most marvelous things about this country is the relative safety. I pray we don’t lose it.
I agree with everything he uttered, but had to keep in mind, also, that this source wants to sell us stuff.
That does not mean he is spot on in my opinion.
I meant to say, “that doesn’t mean he is NOT spot on, imho.”
“I agree with everything he uttered, but had to keep in mind, also, that this source wants to sell us stuff.”
He gives away a ton of material for free too.
Its inevitable we will in terms of the long distance movement. You saw the Occutards. These parasites will be running around smashing windows and robbing old ladies. In small communities, it will probably be okay, but imagine what Chicago would look like in a collapse. The whole south side spilling into the rest of the city like toxic slime
There is a reason the Government is buying millions of rounds of amno.
The throngs of illegal invaders just add to the *fun*, no?
One must lose remorse as a sentiment.
Just had a gun cleaning party.
Just lock & Load. ...
... as long as you don't come close to city blocks where such safety is not provided. Even living near a public transit stop is a detriment sometimes.
Groceries are distributed by neighbors...not stores.
We barter for what we get...but life goes on.
Obama is naive and stupid. "His people" will be hurt most. But America will survive.
And as to relative safety. That is best provided by individuals. With everyone armed...there will be plenty of safety.
“There is a reason the Government is buying millions of rounds of amno.”
And they’re hollow points to boot (with DHS at least).
You honestly think the ultra-wealthy and Wall Street will be hurt the most?
When the Gov't collapses, these folks will abandon their posts.
That ammo will sit in some armory unused.
Obama is an idiot. He believes central planning is possible because he read such in his communist studies.
He can't even launch an Obamacare website. How will he defend his silly government?
There is a reason for the ammo. There is a reason police units are being upgraded to military units, why FATCA was passed to stop us from banking in a different country, why the NSA spies on us all. We are in a prison, and we won't be let out until we pay their debts.
Freebies are part of a good business model. Even drug pushers use it.
One of the most marvelous things about this country is the relative safety. I pray we dont lose it.”
I wonder if we aren’t losing it already to a great extent. Ten years ago I flew with my pre-teen grandson and two friends from Houston to California and the four of us drove from San Diego up to San Francisco, spending lots of time visiting areas in between. Never thought of being afraid or concerned. Wouldn’t think of repeating that now, even if I was carrying.
Lots and lots of places in Houston I wouldn’t dream of driving through that several years ago I didn’t think a thing about.
My world has gotten a whole lot smaller and I pay attention to everyone and everything around me. I often ask myself if it is because I’m older and feel more vulnerable or because there are now more situations that are beyond my control because of societal changes.
When their food stamps are cut off they will starve.
They only know dependency.
On who can they be dependent once the gov't fails to feed them.
I prefer to think of it as we’re living in a fireworks factory and there are idiots running around inside it with lit road flares.
“One must lose remorse as a sentiment.”
Very well stated. You are to be commended on your insight.
>>There is a reason the Government is buying millions of rounds of ammo.<<
There is a reason American citizens are buying millions of rounds of ammo.
90 million gun owners...I’m thinking the advantage will go to ordinary folks. Just my guess.
When civilization collapses, they will be jumping from tall buildings.
Yep, you got it.
Of course you are right. Plenty of places in Dallas (if I have to go there) that I would have a panic attack if I were to find myself in.
We will lose our safety gradually...so we won’t notice. Just like every other freedom we are losing.
I guess I was referring more to a complete collapse...when people can’t move around in any safety at all.
That is without a doubt one of the most true things I have ever read. And well put.
I did not know that. Like what I wonder? I don’t follow.
>>My world has gotten a whole lot smaller and I pay attention to everyone and everything around me. I often ask myself if it is because Im older and feel more vulnerable or because there are now more situations that are beyond my control because of societal changes.
Well, it is either to keep order, or to commit mass murder. I think mass murder is probably closer to the truth.
Given that the takers put ZER0 hours into the common welfare, they are going to be cut loose soon.
Should we all be based on a subsistence economy, so be it.
They are not preppers. They pick up the phone and call the power company.
They are the most dependent of all. When the gov't shuts down they will be begging with those previously on food stamps.
I’d just stipulate that I’d only clean my gunz, if I had any, all by myself, FAR away from others.
The party groupies and frauds told us free trade was good for us. When in reality government traded our sovereignty and dignity for cheap foreign labor as a replacement for the American middle class.
Then our representatives of this government go one step further, riding shotgun driving train loads of more future low wage laborers, free loaders and criminals, by the thousands as fast as they can.
No hurry, since no one has done anything about this for 30+ years.
All this while the same ruling elite gained control of the American medical/healthcare industry and every other industry.
This after fat corps worth uncountable billions spent the last 30 years shipping their companies off to Red China, for more dirt cheap labor....Free trade good....
Even the stupid had to know this would not end well.
The American population is being replaced by foreign low wage workers, who are easily led, easily appeased, kept happy and content with little government morsels, just to keep them in line.
In fact, Americans are subsidizing their own rapidly approaching demise.
Being quickly replaced by the easily controlled, easily appeased, who seldom question their overlords...
Is there anyone here who believes the super powerful, super wealthy ruling class elite did not know this would occur?
After a month, and the gangs have thinned each other out, when the Traitors start resorting to cannibalism, we wait... I would ask if we should trust them, with their history, their eagerness to have "their own" as President, when they want out. As far as any of the corrupt power structure, shoot on sight.
Hollow points won’t penetrate vests...
Better to have AP rifle rounds. .308 or .30-06
Before you go into a fetal position in despair, ponder how an IED and a Crown Vic or up-armored Suburban will interact. These skin-headed, bloused booted bozos are out of their league.

Seems cruel and unfair that snipers would target and kill people going to work. And it was.
But there were also snipers picking off these snipers.
Just an all around hateful, miserable situation.
The whole western world was doomed to collapse as soon as it started down the socialist path (including the US)
The recent influx of illegals is just speeding up the process considerably.
Nothing can stop the fall now, it’s just a matter of when it will happen.
