Red Alert: The Great Collapse & How Banks Will Own You

The mainstream media is reporting that banks are preparing for collapse by preparing “recovery plans” and have been advised that they may not rely on government help.

Last week a court ruled that a Futures Commission Merchant (FCM) that trades in commodities was allowed to use “customer segregated funds” as collateral and to pay its debt. This ruling sets a precedent for greedy bankers and traders to get off scot-free while using customer money for collateral and paying debt, just like the MF Global case that is unfolding. Ann Barhardt warns that all financial institutions like banks, insurance companies, pension funds, retirement accounts, etc. are vulnerable to this type of plunder because the precedent has been set and they will take advantage of it.

In addition, she warns that people will panic when their accounts are raided and demand that the government and the FDIC cover their losses. The only way that people can be repaid is to print more money, resulting in massive inflation, which will lead to total collapse. Your property is now subject to total theft by bankers. She urges people to get out of all markets and take physical possession of all money.

Mac Slavo’s SHTFplan.com article reprinted below is an excellent guide to prepare for collapse:

What Is Money When the System Collapses?

What is money?

Economist Mike Shedlock defines money through the eyes of Austrian economist Murray N. Rothbard as “a commodity used as a medium of exchange.”

“Like all commodities, it has an existing stock, it faces demands by people to buy and hold it. Like all commodities, its price in terms of other goods is determined by the interaction of its total supply, or stock, and the total demand by people to buy and hold it. People buy money by selling their goods and services for it, just as they sell money when they buy goods and services.”

What is money when the system collapses and the SHTF?

In disaster situations, the value of money as we know it now changes, especially if we are dealing with a hyperinflationary collapse of the system’s core currency. This article discusses money as a commodity in an event where the traditional currency (US Dollar) is no longer valuable.

In a collapse of the system, there will be multiple phases, with the first phase being the “crunch”, as discussed in James Rawles‘ book Patriots. The crunch is the period of time directly preceding a collapse and the collapse itself. More

Victory Gardens Produce Abundance

Food is a market that will always exist.  Many people are turning away from industrial farmed food, seeking healthier choices and getting back to the basics.

Victory gardens in America produced up to 40% of all vegetables consumed during World War II. Over 20 million home gardens, apartment rooftop plants and community plots produced 9-10 million tons of produce; equal to the amount of commercial production at that time. The population during the war years increased from approximately 132 million people in 1940 to 140 million in 1945. Current US population is approaching 311 million people.

A family in Pasadena, California is making a living from selling produce grown in their yard to neighbors and restaurants. They grow 6,000 pounds of produce on 1/10th of an acre of cultivated land per year.

While organic food accounts for only 1%- 2% of all food sales worldwide, the organic market expands up to 20% per year. We believe that the organic market is small right now because of lack of education about health dangers of GE (genetically engineered) food and the lack of labeling of GE food. Most Americans don’t realize that about 75% of their diet is GE. As Americans awaken, the demand for pure non-GE foods is increasing. Organic farming is not only healthier but yields can increase, pollution decreases and water use can be decreased (click here for an example).

Some Americans barter or sell produce grown in their yards to neighbors, farmer’s markets, church communities, etc. You can earn extra money selling produce grown in your yard. Because there is a wealth of information on the Internet about how to grow produce in your yard, we will explore some other innovative ideas and suggestions for creating markets. There will always be a market for food.

Refusing vaccination labels you a “criminal”, so says WHO

dusplashThe World Health Organization determined in 2005  it has the authority to dissolve sovereign governments and take control should there be a “pandemic”.  This applies to any country signed onto WHO….which of course we are.  The WHO just raised this non-existent pandemic to level 6. 

From the WHO 2005 declaration: (excerpted)

“ Under special pandemic plans enacted around the world including the USA, in 2005, national governments are to be dissolved in the event of a pandemic emergency and replaced by special crisis committees, which take charge of the health and security infrastructure of a country, and which are answerable to the WHO and EU in Europe and to the WHO and UN in North America.

If the Model Emergency Health Powers Act is implemented on the instructions of WHI, it will be a criminal offence for Americans to refuse the vaccine. Police are allowed to use deadly force against “criminal” suspects.  Here are ten key points associated with MSEHPA: More

Antibiotics pose concern for Minn. ethanol producers

Antibiotics pose concern for Minn. ethanol producers

WORTHINGTON, Minn. (AP) – Ethanol’s main by-product, which is sold as livestock feed, has raised potential food safety concerns.

Several studies have linked the byproduct, known as distillers grain, to elevated rates of E. coli in cattle. And now, distillers grain is facing further scrutiny because the Food and Drug Administration has found that it often contains antibiotics left over from making ethanol.

Ethanol production relies on enzymes, yeast and sugar to convert corn into fuel. And just as the wrong bacteria in the body can sicken people, it can also cause a variety of ailments in a batch of ethanol.

Mark von Keitz with the University of Minnesota’s Biotechnology Institute said in ethanol production, the main enemy is a bacterial bug that makes lactic acid.

“What these organisms do is they also compete with the yeast for the sugar,” said von Keitz. “But instead of making alcohol, they make primarily lactic acid.”

If enough of the bacteria are present, von Keitz said fermentation can be ruined.

“It gets acidified to the point that the yeast is no longer able to properly produce ethanol, and then you’re stuck with a big batch of corn mash,” said von Keitz.

If that happens, there’s no ethanol and no profit. To prevent the problem, producers rely on medicine.

“What people operating these plants are trying to do is to keep these lactic acid bacteria in check,” said von Keitz. “And one way of doing that is with the help of antibiotics.”

Ethanol producers use penicillin and a popular antibiotic called virginiamycin to kill bacteria. And that raises two potential concerns.

One is that these treatments might promote the growth of bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics. The development of these “superbugs” is a major concern in health care because they reduce the effectiveness of medicines.

Von Keitz found some bacteria that were, in fact, resistant when he sampled bacteria at four Midwest ethanol plants several years ago.

The second concern is that the antibiotics could find their way to humans through the food chain.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has taken a mostly hands-off approach to the use of antibiotics in the ethanol industry. But amid increasing concerns over food safety in recent years, the agency is taking a closer look.

“A year ago we put a survey out to the FDA field people to collect samples of those distillers grains, and start analyzing for antibiotic residues,” said Linda Benjamin, a chemist with the FDA’s Center of Veterinary Medicine.

Samples were requested from 60 ethanol plants, including some in Minnesota. She said testing showed that many contained antibiotics, mainly four types.

“Penicillin, virginiamycin, erythromycin and tylosin,” said Benjamin.

At this point the story gets murky. Benjamin won’t say if any of the antibiotics exceeded federal guidelines.

Those guidelines are part of the problem; they’re a patchwork and far from definitive on what levels of antibiotics in distillers grain are safe.

If the FDA decides to restrict antibiotics in the ethanol industry, it could have far-reaching consequences.

Distillers grain is a major source of low-cost livestock feed. Any restrictions on its sale and use as feed will hurt the profit-scarce ethanol industry and the livestock farmers who rely on it.
