I’ll use zombies for any sort of large-scale (or worse) disaster you can conjure up

First, energy production and distribution becomes severely impaired.  The opening assumption used to be that natural gas supplies would remain available as the pumping stations used to use the gas itself as fuel to run the pumps.  The EPA has largely put the kabash on that and as a result a large percentage of the pumping stations now are electrically driven.

Yes, they (like most other critical infrastructure) have backup generators.  That’s nice — until the fuel runs out, and if the refinery and distribution system is disrupted it will.  The same is true for water and sewer systems, both of which require electrical power to operate at a municipal level.

We’re talking pretty basic stuff here folks, and even if you have a septic system (you live outside an incorporated area with mandated sewer use) you probably have a water problem as most well systems are relatively deep and require quite a bit of power to run.  Without electricity your nice well is worthless too; municipal systems with water towers are only usable until the tower is empty without power to refill it.

Is Your Family Prepared to Survive the Economic Collapse?

According to Statistic Brain there are 12,800,000 Americans on welfare, 46,700,000 on food stamps or SNAP, 5,600,000 on unemployment, with a total government spending on welfare annually of approximately $132 billion and this does not even include food stamps or unemployment. These people comprise the army of the Zombie Apocalypse. These people will be your worst nightmare who will be knocking your door down when the welfare gravy train stops coming, 

In today’s environment, anyone who discusses the importance of individual preparation and personal responsibility, due to the fact that we live in very troubled times, are often labeled as fear mongers. Upon closer examination, the real fear mongers are the very people who are responsible for perpetuating the present set of crises.

Oil Falls Below 50 As Global Financial Markets Begin To Unravel

On Monday, the price of oil fell below $50 for the first time since April 2009, and the Dow dropped 331 points.  Meanwhile, the stock market declines over in Europe were even larger on a percentage basis, and the euro sank to a fresh nine year low on concerns that the anti-austerity Syriza party will be victorious in the upcoming election in Greece.  These are precisely the kinds of things that we would expect to see happen if a global financial crash was coming in 2015.  Just prior to the financial crisis of 2008, the price of oil collapsed, prices for industrial commodities got crushed and the U.S. dollar soared relative to other currencies.  All of those things are happening again.  And yet somehow many analysts are still convinced that things will be different this time.  And I agree that things will indeed be “different” this time.  When this crisis fully erupts, it will make 2008 look like a Sunday picnic.

The American People Are Utterly Clueless About What Is Going To Happen As We Enter 2015

The American people are feeling really good right about now.  For example, Gallup’s economic confidence index has hit the highest level that we have seen since the last recession.  In addition, nearly half of all Americans believe that 2015 will be a better year than 2014 was, and only about 10 percent believe that it will be a worse year.  And a lot of people are generally feeling quite good about the people that have been leading our nation.  According to Gallup, once again this year Hillary Clinton is the most admired woman in America and Barack Obama is the most admired man in America.  I don’t know what that says about our nation, but it can’t be good.  Unfortunately, when things seem to be going well common sense tends to go out the window.  A couple days ago, the Guardian ran an article entitled “Goodbye to one of the best years in history“, and a whole lot of people out there are feeling really optimistic these days.  But should they be? 

Sadly, what we are experiencing right now is so similar to what we witnessed in 2007 and early 2008.  The stock market had been on a great run, people were flipping houses like crazy and most people were convinced that the party would never end. 

But then it did end – very painfully.

It’s Official: The Worldwide Bail-ins Are Coming

In case you missed the announcement, Cyprus-style bail-ins are coming to a bank near you.

On November 16, leaders of the G20 Group of Nations – the 20 largest economies – made an important decision. The world’s mega-banks now have official permission to pledge depositor accounts as collateral to make leveraged derivative bets. And if they lose a bet, the counter-party to the contract has first dibs on your money.

The governments of these 20 countries are now supposed to put these arrangements into law. Most, including the US, have already done so.

We’ve all experienced temporary power outages. Sometimes they come in the middle of the night; at other times they  come right in the middle of our favorite sports show. Frustrating, and an inconvenience, they generally don’t last for very long. 

It’s one thing to endure an inconvenient power outage for a day or two; it’s another to be one of thousands without power in a city or larger area, perhaps in the dead of winter. Or at the other end of the scale, you could be where temperatures soar to well over 110 degrees during summer months. In one instance you are at risk of freezing to death; in another you are at risk of heatstroke or more.  Your family will soon get used to the absence of television and movies and other electronic appendages. There will be other things to worry about.

Plummeting Oil Prices Could Destroy The Banks That Are Holding Trillions In Commodity Derivatives

Could rapidly falling oil prices trigger a nightmare scenario for the commodity derivatives market?  The big Wall Street banks did not expect plunging home prices to cause a mortgage-backed securities implosion back in 2008, and their models did not anticipate a decline in the price of oil by more than 40 dollars in less than six months this time either.  If the price of oil stays at this level or goes down even more, someone out there is going to have to absorb some absolutely massive losses.  In some cases, the losses will be absorbed by oil producers, but many of the big players in the industry have already locked in high prices for their oil next year through derivatives contracts.  The companies enter into these derivatives contracts for a couple of reasons.  Number one, many lenders do not want to give them any money unless they can show that they have locked in a price for their oil that is higher than the cost of production.  Secondly, derivatives contracts protect the profits of oil producers from dramatic swings in the marketplace.  These dramatic swings rarely happen, but when they do they can be absolutely crippling.  So the oil companies that have locked in high prices for their oil in 2015 and 2016 are feeling pretty good right about now.  But who is on the other end of those contracts?  In many cases, it is the big Wall Street banks, and if the price of oil does not rebound substantially they could be facing absolutely colossal losses. 

It has been estimated that the six largest “too big to fail” banks control $3.9 trillion in commodity derivatives contracts.  And a very large chunk of that amount is made up of oil derivatives. 

Halloween Isis and the Church

2 Timothy 1:10King James Version (KJV)
10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel: 

Jesus came to bring "life" and abolish death, but yet so many professing Christians still celebrate Halloween. Now there are many scriptures and many teachings on YouTube about what Halloween really is and the reasons we shouldn't be a part of it. But this message is a warning of the persecution to come upon America. A persecution that is already happening in the world.

1st Ebola case is now confirmed in New York City

For weeks, I have been warning that this day was coming.  Ebola is now confirmed in New York City.

(NaturalNews) NY Daily News is reporting today that Dr. Craig Spencer ran around New York City "after first telling authorities he self-quarantined himself." [1] The paper also says Dr. Spencer "hit the [bowling] lanes in Williamsburg." 

Dr. Spencer recently returned from Guinea, one of the worst-hit Ebola outbreak nations in West Africa. Today he was "rushed to a hospital with suspected Ebola symptoms" which reportedly include nausea and a 103-degree temperature. Media reports say Dr. Spencer has been in New York City for a period of 10 days, first entering the country through the JFK airport. 

According to news reports, Dr. Spencer is now confirmed to have tested positive for Ebola. [4] 

The bar area of one of the bowling alleys Dr. Spencer visited has now been closed, reports NY Daily News. This brings up the obvious question: was Dr. Spencer drinking alcohol? If so, was his judgment impaired? Society rightfully frowns upon drinking and driving, but what about drinking and potentially transmitting Ebola in public places?
