Something Big Is Coming... and It's Going to Be BAD
Zero Hedge ^ | 1/18/11 | Phoenix Capital Research

Posted on 11/18/2011 2:20:36 PM PST by Nachum

Something major is occuring in the markets today.

The US economy peaked in 2007. However, throughout much of 2008, the stock market continued to rally despite the economic collapse as well as the financial system imploding.

Throughout this period the credit markets jammed up and implied something VERY BAD was in the system. However, stock investors continued to pile into stocks because, well, frankly stocks always are the last to "get it."

And when stocks finally did get it... it was quite a thing.

This same environment is occurring today. Only this time the collapse is sovereign in nature: entire countries are going bust.

We have been getting MAJOR warning signs of a collapse for months now. No less than the Bank of England, the IMF, and legendary asset management firm Franklin Templeton have warned that we are facing an epic, hellish crisis.

We got the first taste of this in August when the S&P 500 literally wiped out a year's worth of gains in two weeks The only thing that brought us back from the brink at that time was the belief that the EU mess might be solvable and a coordinated intervention from the world Central Banks.

I think this may be the reason why we have the Natalie Wood case being resurrected, so that the news networks have something else to talk about.

I remember an old joke that told of a smiling Luftansa stewardess telling the passengers "You VILL enjoy this flight!"

In the meantime, storm clouds continue to pile up.

Reading the prepper ping list articles I know I am one who will die quick when the SHTF. Someone posted an article yesterday about Argentina after 2001. It’s more of a “partial” SHTF than the one “selco” posted from Bosnia, which was pretty much total anarchy while two armies squared off with them in the middle.

Ours will more likely be like Argentina. I doubt there will an organized rebel movement to take out the corrupt old government. We’ll be stuck in poverty, using black markets, worried about criminals breaking in and killing us and violating our kids and wives. Paying bribes to get out of tickets, because the officers (and everyone else) would rather have the bribes.

It won’t be pretty. It won’t be temporary in the short term. It will be long term. We’ll be stuck with perpetual kleptocratic, incompetent, ineffective government.

We will be a third world nation. “Welfare” and other checks from the government will dwindle, even that will be harder and harder to get for those not friendly or related to officials or bureaucrats.

Imagine those on food stamps getting $350 a month suddenly finding that because of skyrocketing prices (at least that won’t count as inflation, lol) they effectively are now getting $35 or $50. It will be the same for those on social security and other fixed incomes. It’ll bribes (barter?) to even see a doctor, even with government healthcare.

Many won’t survive. People won’t be able to pay their mortgages and their savings are becoming worthless. Private savings accounts could literally be nationalized (Argentina). As the Argentina article points out, the justice system will be crippled, crime will be rampant, kids (and women?) won’t be able to go outside without (armed) supervision.

In the Bosnian warzone under seige selco found that gold bullion would have been pretty useless. Butane for filling up lighters was like a goldmine. I think I am recalling that correctly.

So with total ‘local’ collapse gold coins are kept until its over and you can trade with the outside world. Unfortunately for us, there isn’t likely to be an outside world to restore order and re-engage with. Right now it looks like EUrtopia will collapse first.

Because copper or aluminum bullets aren't as effective at defending your provisions.

I diversified into lead, copper and brass. I find the copper/lead pairing moves a lot faster.

There is something big coming. Don’t know what but...

Why start tests of the national emergency broadcast system after it has been offline for years?

Out here in New Mexico, a lot of the people work for either Kirtland AFB (in charge of storing our nukes) or Los Alamos or Sandia Labs (who helped design our nukes).

A friend who can’t tell me what he does for a living - except that he works with high powered lasers - was going to be taking a private sector job in PA, but instead has been offered a lot of bucks to stay at his current quasi-government job. Same guy who smiles mysteriously whenever I bring up the California contrail/missile launch. When that happened he got called back from a vacation trip and was unable to come home for over a week.

A relative who has worked high up in security for the labs for years suddenly announced his retirement. Won’t say why, except that “it was time.”

A former roommate who works for NOAA has been put on a special “stand-by” status where he is to drop everything and be at the office at a moment’s notice.

There are other things that the conspiracy nuts are holding up as “evidence” of something coming, and I have always written them off as kooks, but everything altogether is making me go hmmmmmm...

I’ve seen copper bullets before, but I’ve never seen aluminum ones. I think they’d probably be too light to be very effective.

I think we’ll be attacked shortly after we start bombing Syria. It’ll probably be traced to Hezbollah and will serve as the casus beli for Obama’s re-election war with Iran.

Phoenix Capital has been calling for an imminent crash for two years now. I agree it will come eventually. But there’s a lot of extend and pretend left in our ruling class before that happens.

My understanding of that part of his story was that they figured out a way to fill them with gasoline.

First of all, it hasn't been "offline for years", this is a new system being put into place. Second of all, you got to start the testing sooner or later........
