The-Ruins-Of-Detroit

Detroit Has Gone From Being The Greatest Manufacturing City In The World To A Global Joke:

In 1960, the city of Detroit was the greatest manufacturing city that the world had ever seen.  Nearly two million people lived there, and it had the highest per capita income in the United States.  That may be hard to believe, because today it actually has one of the lowest per capita incomes of all of our major cities.  Over the decades more than a million people have left the city, and thousands of abandoned homes have been torn down.  But there are still tens of thousands of abandoned dwellings that remain standing, and some have sold for as little as one dollar in recent years.  Once Detroit was the envy of the entire planet, but now it has become a global joke and in other countries they love to do news stories about “the ruins of Detroit” to show how rapidly America is rotting and decaying.  Sadly, Detroit is far from alone, because there are other formerly great manufacturing cities that have declined just as fast as Detroit has.

Earlier today, I came across a video that contains footage that someone recently captured as they drove through the city of Detroit at night.  To say that the footage is disturbing would be a tremendous understatementContinue reading »

Marc Faber Rings the Alarm Bell, Predicts a 50% Near Term Correction in Stocks:

Volatility is the name of the game. Stocks are acting up, but standing strong. Oil is propelling higher and the US dollar is falling. Turmoil around the world has never been higher and an ominous shadow is lurking in the background, ready to strike.

The situation that we now face is ultimately going to end in a collapse of epic proportion. The financial world is now a ticking bomb that is just waiting to explode – I know this, you know this and even if the masses don’t, they can feel it in their bones. Continue reading »

“If we can’t all learn from the situation in Venezuels, which has been created by the banksters as a lesson to the people for wanting to share the spoils of their oil assets, then we have no hope.

It is coming to us all, we have had enough warnings and notice, we have no excuse.”


Total Societal Collapse: What the Media Isn’t Telling You About Venezuela:

Venezuela — Life in Venezuela now consists of empty grocery stores, record rates of violent crime, and widespread shortages of just about everything. The economic and political conditions have been deteriorating for years, but recent stories coming from this once-rich nation are astonishing. Bars have run out of beer, McDonald’s can’t get buns for their Big Macs, and rolling blackouts are a regular occurrence. The average person spends over 35 hours a month waiting in line to buy their rationed goods, and even basics like toilet paper and toothpaste are strictly regulated.

The fiasco began when the price of oil collapsed and sent Venezuelan finances into chaos. The oil-dependent nation, despite its imposing government policies, couldn’t prevent the fallout. The current problems are further compounded by rampant corruption throughout the Venezuelan government. The likelihood of a peaceful resolution is decreasing by the day, and political dissents are likely to be met with brutal crackdowns. The desperation of the masses could explode violently under the right circumstances, and there are few things more dangerous to a nation than a hungry population. Continue reading »

Venezuela’s Latest Response To Food Shortages: Ban Lines Outside Bakeries:

Submitted by Anthony Fisher via Reason.com’s Hit & Run blog,

The tragedy of Venezuela continues unabated, but that doesn’t mean the government of President Nicolás Maduro has stopped trying to fix problems like the devastating scarcity of food which has led to malnutrition, riots, food truck hijackings, vigilante lynchings of petty thieves, and the starvation of zoo animals.

No, Maduro hasn’t admitted the failure of Chavismo — the brand of Bolivarian socialism imposed on the oil-rich country by his late predecessor Hugo Chavez — instead, Venezuela’s embattled leader has launched a war on “anxiety.”

The National Superintendency of Fair Prices has reportedly instituted a policy of fining bakeries that allow lines to stretch out their front doors, according to PanAmPost. The head of this particular bureaucracy, William Contreras, claims the lines aren’t a true indicator of a severe shortage of bread, but rather, a political “strategy of generating anxiety.”

Contreras claims there is no shortage of raw materials to make bread, but seems to not understand that bakeries just bake bread, they don’t process the different kinds of wheat used to make the flour that’s then used to make bread. Continue reading »

When The Trucks Stop Running…:

“… Then within two weeks, clean water supplies would run out. Within four weeks to eight weeks, there wouldn’t be coal delivered to power plants and electricity would start shutting down. And when that happened, about a quarter of our pipelines use electricity, and so natural gas plants wouldn’t be fed natural gas and they’d start shutting down. It’s a big interdependent system. That’s part of the problem...”

People better learn fast how to heal themselves through alternative medicine (Acupuncture, homeopathy, herbal medicine, etc.), diet and exercise, because the greatest collapse in world history is coming and Alois Irlmaier foresaw that the U.S. will get the greatest revolution of all time.

The medical system will no longer exist and you have to become your own doctor.

Obamacare-------


As Predicted, Obamacare Is Absolutely Killing The Middle Class:

The critics of Obamacare have been proven right.  The Obama administration promised that health insurance premiums would go down.  Instead, they have absolutely skyrocketed.  The Obama administration promised that Obamacare would not kill jobs.  Instead, firms are hiring fewer workers because of suffocating health care costs.  As you will see below, even the Federal Reserve is admitting this.  The Obama administration also promised that the big health insurance companies would love the new Obamacare plans and would eagerly compete with one another to win customers in the new health insurance marketplaces.  Instead, many of the big health insurance companies are now dropping Obamacare plans altogether.

We witnessed the latest stunning example of this phenomenon just a few days ago.  It turns out that Aetna has been losing hundreds of millions of dollars on plans sold through the health exchanges, and now they plan to pull out of the program almost entirelyContinue reading »

India 8 liters for 7 days, for drinking and all other needs

India’s water crisis: 8 liters for 7 days, for drinking and all other needs (RT DOCUMENTARY) :

A water tanker delivers water to villages in the northern Indian state of Rajasthan, bordering Pakistan, once a week. There are no other sources of water anywhere nearby, locals told RTD journalists, saying their once fertile lands are turning into a desert. Continue reading »

Jeffrey Snider: All Signs Point To Systemic Reset:

“… what’s happened in stocks is more a myth than actual reality. Investors in stocks are buying at ridiculous valuations based on the premise that the Fed can create a recovery through liquidity. And what 2014 and 2015 show us is that this simply wasn’t true! …the longer the earnings recession lingers, the higher the risk that stock investors will realize that they’ve been following the wrong story all along!”

Caterpillar Retail Orders Suffer Second Biggest Plunge Since Financial Crisis:

While the relentless decline in Caterpillar retail sales has been duly noted here every month for nearly 4 years, now posting 44 consecutive declines, the latest, July data was downright depressionary.

Japanese Imports, Exports Crash At Worst Rate Since 2009:

For the 19th month in a row, Japanese Imports plunged – dropping 24.7% YoY (worse than expected), the biggest drop since Oct 2009. Exports were just as dismal, also missing expectations, plunging 14.1% YoY – worst since Oct 2009. The biggest driver of the collapse of Japanese trade was a 44% crash in the Chinese trade balance. There’s no lipstick to put on this pig… it’s a disaster.. and worse still Yen is strengthening back below 100 against the USD.

Young-Man

Overwhelmed By Debt, Nearly 1 In 5 Young Adults Live With Their Parents Or Grandparents:

In America today, more than 60 million people live in multi-generational households.  That number is so large that it may seem difficult to believe, but the truth is that vast numbers of young adults have had to move back in with their parents and grandparents in recent years due to the deteriorating economy.  Millions of our young people cannot find decent jobs once they leave school, and millions of them are absolutely overwhelmed by debt.  Of course some of them are just lazy, but whatever the reason it is undeniable that multi-generational households are on the rise.  According to the Pew Research Center, 12 percent of the U.S. population was living in multi-generational households back in 1980.  Today, that number is up to 19 percent.  That means nearly one out of every five U.S. adults now live with their parents or their grandparents.

One of the big culprits, of course, is student loan debt. Continue reading »

In Alberta, Lower Oil Prices Bring Job Losses, Empty Office Space And Child Prostitution:

In Alberta, the Oil Sands King in the North, the economy continues to be crushed by crude prices.  With the oil fallout has come massive job losses, business closings, soaring office vacancy rates and increasing crime.  None of this should be terribly surprising for a region of the world that is somewhat dependent on oil sands production.  At current oil prices most oil sands projects can’t even cover their cash operating costs which are estimated to be $50 per barrel much less the estimated $90 per barrel required to start a new project.

As recently reported by the Huffington Post, Calgary is on pace to close 7,000 businesses in 2016 up from 6,337 in 2015 and 5,902 in 2014. Furthermore, a separate Huffington Post article highlights a recent report from CBRE which found that vacancy rates of commercial office space in Calgary rose to 22.2% in 2Q 2016, the highest level since 1983, and up massively vs. the 13% vacancy rate from one year prior.  The report also points out that 4mm sq. ft. of office space has come online in just the past 6 quarters alone.  Continue reading »

How The Globalists Will Attempt To Control Populations Post-Collapse:

There is an interesting disconnect with some people when discussing the concept of global centralization. Naturally, the mind reels in horror at the very idea, because many of us know, deep down at our core, that centralization is the root of tyranny.  We know that when absolute power is granted into the hands of an elite few over the lives of the masses, very bad things happen.  No small group of people has ever shown itself trustworthy, rational, empathic or wise enough to handle such a responsibility.  They ALWAYS screw it up, or, they deliberately take advantage of their extreme position of influence to force a particular ideology on everyone else.

This leads to resistance, resistance leads to sociopolitical crackdown and then great numbers of people are imprisoned, enslaved or even murdered.  This leads to even more resistance until one of two possible outcomes emerges — chaos and revolution or complete totalitarianism and micro-managed collectivism.

If You Want To Survive The Coming Greatest Financial Collapse In World History: Bosnia War Survivor: ‘One year in Hell …’ – ’35 Excuses That Will Doom The Non-Prepper’:

Money soon became worthless. We returned to an exchange. For a tin can of tushonka (think Soviet spam), you could have a woman. (It is hard to speak of it, but it is true.) Most of the women who sold themselves were desperate mothers.

Arms, ammunition, candles, lighters, antibiotics, gasoline, batteries and food. We fought for these things like animals. In these situations, it all changes. Men become monsters. It was disgusting.


Sex for shelter

Sex for shelter: Craigslist ads offer homeless women indecent proposal:

Online advertisements are offering free accommodation to vulnerable homeless women, as long as they are “stunning” and can prove their attractiveness with a picture, a British charity has warned.

Posted on Craigslist, the “sordid” ads are “targeting desperate women who feel they have no other options – and women who may already have experienced sexual or domestic violence,” homelessness charity Shelter said in a statement.

There are hundreds of listings on the site, some of which boldly state that women will be given free accommodation if they’re prepared to return the favor in the form of sex. The ads vary from explicit sexual demands to implied intentions. Continue reading »

What Will You Do When The Lights Go Out? The Inevitable Failure Of The US Grid:

Delta Airlines recently experienced what it called a power outage in its home base of Atlanta, Georgia, causing all the company’s computers to go offline—all of them. This seemingly minor hiccup managed to singlehandedly ground all Delta planes for six hours, stranding passengers for even longer, as Delta scrambled to reshuffle passengers after the Monday debacle.

Where Delta blamed its catastrophic systems-wide computer failure vaguely on a loss of power, Georgia Power, their power provider, placed the ball squarely in Delta’s court, saying that “other Georgia Power customers were not affected”, and that they had staff on site to assist Delta.

One Person Shot, Officer Injured In Second Night Of Milwaukee Violence Despite State Of Emergency:

Despite Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker declaring a state of emergency in Milwaukee on Sunday and activating the state’s National Guard a day after riots and looting erupted in the city spurred by the fatal police shooting of an armed man following a traffic stop, the violence flared again on Sunday night, with one person shot, a police officer injured and objects hurled during the protest early Monday, police said.

Protests resumed Sunday and carried into early Monday morning as protesters began swarming a Milwaukee police station, blocking the street. One victim was shot during the Monday unrest and rushed to a hospital in an armored vehicle. A police officer was injured and also taken to the hospital after a rock broke the windshield of a squad car, according to Milwaukee Police. The damage was not as extensive as the protests from the previous night according to CNN. Continue reading »

“It’s Surreal” – Negative Yielding Debt Rises To Record $13.4 Trillion:

Despite expectations that recent, better than expected global economic data (with several prominent setbacks, especially in US and Japanese GDP, as well as the recent Chinese data) which last week sent the Citi global economic surprise index to multi-year highs, would push global government yields at least modestly higher, that did not happen.  Instead, as the FT reports, the value of negative-yielding bonds – both government and corporate – swelled to $13.4 trillion this week up from $13.1 trillion last week, as negative interest rates and central bank bond buying ripple through the debt market.

About a quarter of the global economy now has negative interest rates. 

“It’s surreal,” said Gregory Peters, senior investment officer at Prudential Fixed Income and Morgan Stanley’s former chief global asset strategist, who two months ago was one of the very few to predict the market’s reaction to Brexit when he said that the market was looking at it wrong and urging to “Buy US Assets In Case Of Brexit.” Regarding negative yields he added that “It’s clear that central banks are dominating markets. There’s a race to the bottom. Central banks are the main drivers of this, it’s not fundamental.” Continue reading »

Milwaukee Blacks Attack Whites Because “The Rich People Are Not Trying To Give Us None”:

According to the government’s official data, the number of unemployed black Americans is at its lowest since 2007 seemingly confirming President Obama’s narrative that “everything is awesome.” So, we wondered, if everything’s awesome and everyone’s got a job, why are black Americans rioting in Milwaukee?

burning car

Here is the answer in one chart and one short sentence from a Milwaukee protester…

Jobs are not fungible… Since President Obama was elected, black Americans may have seen their joblessness decline – but since President Obama was elected, income inequality for black Americans has soared…

20160814_blackjobs

The solution is simple – as this young black American explains… the violent rioting that occurred last night in Milwaukee is rich people’s fault

To quote:

“It’s sad because you know, this is what happens because they’re not helping the black community, like you know, the rich people, they got all this money, and they not, like you know, trying to give us none.”

Of course – this lone wolf interviewee does not represent the views of all black Americans, although it appears the focus is not ‘the rich’ but ‘the white’ – “They’re beating every white person!” one of the agitators shouted in the video. “They jumpin’ every white person.”
