Food Shortages In Six Months – The Globalists Are Telling Us What Happens Next

April 29, 2022

By Brandon Smith

In mid 2007 the Bank for International Settlements (The central bank of central banks) released a statement predicting an impending “Great Depression” caused by a credit market implosion. That same year the International Monetary Fund also published warnings of “subprime woes” leading to wider economic strife. I started writing alternative economic analysis only a year earlier in 2006 and I immediately thought it was strange that these massive globalist institutions with far reaching influence on the financial world were suddenly starting to sound a lot like those of us in the liberty movement.

This was 16 years ago, so many people reading this might not even remember, but in 2007 the alternative media had already been warning about an impending deflationary crash in US markets and housing for some time. And, not surprisingly, the mainstream media was always there to deny all of our concerns as “doom mongering” and “conspiracy theory.” Less than a year later the first companies awash in derivatives began to announce they were on the verge of bankruptcy and everything tanked.

The media response? They made two very bizarre claims simultaneously: “No one could have seen it coming” and “We saw this coming a mile away.” Mainstream journalists scrambled to position themselves as the soothsayers of the day as if they said all along that the crash was imminent, yet, there were only a handful of people who actually did call it and none of them were in the MSM. Also ignored was the fact that the BIS and IMF had published their own “predictions” well before the crash; the media pretended as if they did not exist.

In the alternative media we watch the statements and open admissions of the globalists VERY carefully because they are not in the business of threat analysis; rather, they are in the business of threat synthesis. That is to say, if something goes very wrong in the world economically, central bankers and money elites with aspirations of a single centralized economic authority for the world are ALWAYS found to have a hand in that disaster.

For some reason, they like to tell us what they are about to do before they do it.

The idea that globalists artificially create economic collapse events will of course be criticized as “conspiracy theory,” but it is a FACT. For more information on the reality of deliberate financial sabotage and the “order out of chaos” ideology of globalists please read my articles ‘Fed One Meeting Away From Creating A Doomsday Sinkhole’ and ‘What Is The Great Reset And What Do The Globalists Actually Want?’

The Great Reset agenda proposed by WEF head Klaus Schwab is just one example of the many discussions hidden in plain sight by globalists concerning their plans to use economic and social decline as an “opportunity” to quickly establish a new one world system based on socialism and technocracy.

The primary problem with discerning what the globalists are planning is not in uncovering secret agendas – They tend to openly discuss their agendas if you know where to look. No, the problem is in separating the admissions from the disinformation, the lies from the truth. This requires matching up globalist white papers and statements to the facts and evidence at hand in the real world. Let’s look specifically at the food shortage problem in detail…

Food Shortages In Six Months

A week ago there was a torrent of press releases from global institutions all mentioning the same exact same concern: Food shortages within the next 3 to 6 months. These statements line up very closely with my own estimates, as I have been warning regularly about impending dangers of inflation leading to food rationing and supply chain disruptions.

The IMF, the BIS, World Bank, The UN, the Rockefeller Foundation, the World Economic Forum, Bank of America and even Biden himself are all predicting a major food crisis in the near term, and it is not a coincidence that the policies of these very institutions and the actions of puppet politicians that work with them are causing the crisis they are now predicting. That is to say, it’s easy to predict a disaster when you created the disaster.

The claim is that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is the primary cause, but this is a distraction from the real issue. Yes, sanctions against Russia will eventually lead to less food supply, but the globalists and the media are purposely ignoring the bigger threat, which is currency devaluation and price inflation created by central banks pumping out tens of trillions of dollars in stimulus packages to prop up “too big to fail” corporate partners.

In 2020 alone, the Fed created over $6 trillion from nothing and air dropped it into the economy through covid welfare programs. Add that to the many trillions of dollars that the Fed has printed since the credit crash in 2008 – It has been a nonstop dollar destruction party and now the public is starting to feel the consequences. Lucky for the central bankers that covid struck and Russia invaded Ukraine, because now they can deflect all the blame for the inflationary calamity they have engineered onto the pandemic and onto Putin.

Inflation hit 40 year highs in the US well before Russia invaded Ukraine, but let’s consider the ramifications of that war and how it affects the food supply.

The Russian invasion certainly disrupts Ukrainian grain production, which makes up around 11% of the total world wheat market. Russia also maintains a 17% share and together these two nations feed a large swath of third world nations and parts of Europe with 30% of wheat and barley exports, 19% of corn exports, 23% of canola exports, and 78% of sunflower exports.

It is the sanctions on Russia that are a problem well beyond Ukraine, however, as Russia also produces around 20% of global ammonia and 20% of global potash supplies. These are key ingredients to fertilizers used in large scale industrial farming. Farmers are estimating an overall price spike of around 10% in food markets, but I believe this is very conservative. I am already seeing overall price increases of at least 20% from six months ago, and I expect there to be another 30% in price hikes before this year is over. In other words, we are looking at 50% in average increases in 2022.

Official government inflation data and CPI cannot be trusted. Double whatever numbers they give and you will be much closer to the truth. The inflation rate used by, calculated using methods once applied by the US government in the 1980s before they “adjusted” their models to hide the data, supports my position so far.

The expectation among US agricultural experts is that China will fill the void where Russian supplies disappear, but it’s a mistake to make this assumption.

Something Weird Is Going On In China

China’s crackdown on covid infections has reached levels so bizarre I have to ask the question: Are their lockdowns really about covid, or are they hiding something else?

The death rate of covid in China is impossible to calculate accurately because they have never released proper data that can be confirmed. However, almost everywhere else in the world we see a median infection fatality rate of 0.27% for covid; meaning, over 99.7% of people in the world on average have nothing to fear in terms of dying from the virus. But in China, the CCP is acting as if they are dealing with the Black Plague. Why?

Lockdowns have resulted in food shortages across the country as supply chains become strained and manufacturing remains shut in many cases. The story many westerners are not hearing much about, though, is the fact that Chinese exports have essentially been frozen. This is very important so I think it needs emphasis – Over 1 IN 5 container ships IN THE WORLD are now backed up in Chinese ports due to their covid lockdowns. This is incredible.

Why would China do this over a virus we all know is not dangerous to the vast majority of people? Why institute the worst lockdown in the country so far and starve their own people when the majority of Western governments have now given up on their pandemic fear mongering and the forced vaccination agenda?

I would suggest the possibility that China might already be engaging in an economic war that many Americans and Europeans don’t even realize is going on. This may be a beta test for a shut down of exports to the US and Europe, or it is an incremental shutdown that is meant to become permanent. The bottleneck on trade may also be a precursor to a Chinese invasion of Taiwan.

Taiwan is actually more dependent and intertwined with China’s economy than many people know. China is the biggest buyer of Taiwan’s exports and those exports account for 10% of Taiwan’s GDP. Taiwan has hundreds of thousands of workers and businessmen that travel regularly to China to work, another economic factor that is now strained by lockdowns. Furthermore, Taiwan has multiple corporations that operate their factories on mainland China, all of which could be closed due to covid lockdowns.

All I’m saying is, if I was China planning on invading Taiwan in the near future, I might consider using covid as a cover for damaging their economy first and disrupting their export model. Communists see the population as a utility that can be sacrificed if necessary, and China is perfectly willing to cause short term suffering to their people if it means long term gains for the party. Beyond that, if I was going to engage in economic warfare with the west covertly, what better way than to tie up 20% of the world’s cargo ships and disrupt supply chains in the name of protecting the country form a “pandemic?”

The bottom line? Don’t rely on China to fill export needs for fertilizer ingredients or anything else as sanctions on Russia continue.

Inflation vs. Supply vs. Control

It’s not just globalist organizations talking about incoming food shortages; the CEO of international food corporation Goya has also recently warned we are on the precipice of a food crisis. As I have noted in the past, inflation leads to government price controls, price controls lead to lack of production incentives (profits), lack of profits leads to loss of production, loss of production leads to shortages, and shortages lead to government rationing (control over all large food sources).

As we have seen with almost every authoritarian regime in modern history, control over the food supply is key to controlling the population. It is only surpassed as a strategic concern by control over energy (which we will also see shortages of soon as Europe sanctions Russian oil and gas and starts eating up supplies from other exporters). The food issue hits closest to home because we can see the effects immediately on our wallets and on our families. There is nothing worse for many parents than the prospect of their children going hungry.

The mainstream media is once again ignoring any potential economic threat, specifically they are denying the notion of food shortages as something to be worried about. I say, why listen to a group of people that are always wrong on these types of events? If anything, I would at least take the words of the globalists seriously when it comes to economic collapse; they benefit the most from such disasters after all, and they also have the most influence when it comes to triggering crisis.

Preparedness today costs nothing tomorrow. Lack of preparedness today costs EVERYTHING tomorrow. The choice for anyone with a brain is simple – Get prepared for the end of affordable and easily available food before this year is out.

    Great article, again!
    F. William Engdahl ends up with to same conclusions like you:
    Around me, too many people are still oblivious to the massive wave of shortages coming by this fall.
    “Preparedness today costs nothing tomorrow. Lack of preparedness today costs EVERYTHING tomorrow. The choice for anyone with a brain is simple – Get prepared for the end of affordable and easily available food before this year is out.”

    The “WhiteHats” are putting out more factual information through the US mainstream media (cnn, msnbc, etc), so it is possible to discern more truth thru the propaganda mill. Case in point, fox news is the closest one to truth at this time.

    • D Man April 29, 2022 at 1:23 pm

      There are no white hats coming to save you. It’s up to all of us and not some comic hero. MSM is what someone watches to see what ‘they’ want us to know, otherwise, there is no op-sec there. They report lies after something happens, never a warning about what is coming. That’s why we come here, truth and researched warnings.

      • ] May 3, 2022 at 3:29 am

        I never said anything about white hats coming to save us. What I said was that it is more clear for someone just waking up now to know more of the truth in that way. Obviously you can surmise that the learning curve for someone like that would be much more steep than someone awakened for some time.
        And what I can say is that the truth disclosure has indeed begun, with steady drops, so as not to overwhelm such ones.

        • Steve May 3, 2022 at 5:15 am

          Disagree. Most people have their heads up their backsides. They know nothing about any of this. They’re still locked into Covid fear mode and any price increases are due to that nasty, howwible Putin guy.

    Yes Brandon. We need to grow food. Everybody.

    Here is a simple method for gardening lots of food with minimal amount of work.

    Bruce Darrell grows potatoes, onions, carrots and winter squash with his simple garden method. All of them can be stored many months and will provide food for you and your family through dark winter months. With minimal effort.

    I will add corn and beans to this but otherwise will follow Bruces method.

  • DC+Miami April 29, 2022 at 9:42 am

    It could not be more obvious that this is a worldwide, engineered famine. All the key underpinnings of food production are being deliberately targeted under the convenient cover of disease prevention or war. I’ve even heard of food production plants being bombed and set afire in probable acts of arson. They’re not messin’ around.

      • Rodster April 30, 2022 at 9:05 am

        Correct and a person doesn’t have to buy $5,000 worth of food, especially like overpriced survival food outlets. A person can buy enough dry staples that are cheap, “right now” that can last years. Example:

        Rice 20lbs, beans canned or dry, canned meats such as tuna fish, especially peanut butter because it’s high in protein and last years. I just opened a 4 yr old jar of peanut butter, no problems. Canned fruit jams, preserves, canned vegetables etc. Now is a good time to but beef if it’s on sale and store it in a freezer. Some may offer other ideas and suggestions but that’s just a short list.

        So the bottom line is a person should not have to go into debt to stock up on food. However if a person is so heavily in debt that they can’t buy food to last a few months then they have probably made some bad financial choices.

        Currently I am as close to debt free as I possibly can get.

          RE: “I just opened a 4 yr old jar of peanut butter, no problems.”

          That’s simply amazing. I have a hard time believing it. I always thought nuts went rancid pdq.

          We have home canned jams that went bad after a few years. I don’t see them as long term foods.

            I think 12-18 months is considered the standard for pressure canned goods, but that might just be because of FDA recommendations.

          • dirtroadlivin May 2, 2022 at 5:31 am

            That is odd re the home canned jams. We have used home canned jams over five years old so far with no problems. Have also consumed home pressure canned meats of five years old with no problems or discernible issues with quality. We did figure out even pressure canned (and commercial canned) tomatoes start to change appearance after about three years in some instances. Five years is not our normal target for use but things happen, dietary changes etc. Would love to start freeze drying, just spending that amount of money is a hurdle to get over.

          • Rodster May 3, 2022 at 6:40 am

            “That’s simply amazing. I have a hard time believing it. I always thought nuts went rancid pdq.”

            It’s true. I have never had peanut butter go bad long after the expiration date. One thing I do after opening the jar is to store it in the refrigerator. Just yesterday I opened a can of Bumble Bee Prime tuna fish with an expiration date of 2018. Taste was good, no food poisoning or trip to the hospital.

          • Munzberg May 12, 2022 at 2:08 pm

            I had bought a case of peanut butter when I lived in Houston. I put it the back of a closet in a spare room that wasn’t air conditioned. Three years later I found it. I thought it would surely need to be tossed but it was just fine. And Houston gets hot!

    Meat production has been highjacked CAFO’s for fifty or sixty years or more. The better, healthier and less energy intensive way is raising them via pasture and intensive rotational grazing. It take much time to transition to pastured animals and unfortunately. Too bad people aren’t supporting farmers that are raising livestock this way. The farmers that we support that are doing this are having a hard time cause not enough people that want to support it.

    I think the biggest problem that we will face with food will be the meat shortfall. Their definitely isn’t enough wild game. Gonna be ugly when things get short.

    • Pat B May 2, 2022 at 6:36 pm

      Food where I live and most anywhere else is already in short supply and deemed to get much, much shorter very soon. Many shelves continue to be empty.

      The best anyone can do is to grow what you can and eat what you grow. Meat already is and will continue to be the hardest, to come by. And what may be available will be very expensive. But there are ways around the shortfall.

      We are into the very best time of the year when good homegrown fruits and vegetables can be grown in the garden, on a sunny porch, a balcony, or a windowsill. Save the seeds from everything you grow using HEIRLOOM/OPEN-POLLINATED SEEDS. Tomatoes, a variety of lettuces, cucumbers, eggplant, melons, squash…and so very many more. It’s a waste to not do so as the store bought – whatever may be available – will not be good, nor plentiful. Slim pickin’s at best!

      When you take your first juicy bite into an organically home grown Heirloom tomato, your mouth does the “boogie dance” and loudly sings out that old favorite…”Where have You Been All My Life???” Your salivary glands tingle. You know, right then, that you’ve done something very special! The store bought, cardboard tasting, flavorless tomato just doesn’t, and will never, match up with home-grown.

      I’ve just planted some tomato plants and adding into the same large tub along with the Tomato plants are Basil seeds. In the large tubs right next door are Bell Peppers, Parsley, Onions and Garlic We eat them together so why not grow them together!! They compliment each other and are good growing buddies.

      Above all…save those Heirloom seeds from the best piece of the “fruit” on the bush or vine for growing next years meals. Food will be even more scarce than it is now. You will always have something to eat and not scampering to the store to get the slim pickin’s alongside the “beater-uppers” who don’t know nuthin and won’t do nuthin!

      Right now, I am starting to pick off some of the dried seeds from the many varieties of wildflowers still growing. I’ve also included those very giant and stunning Sunflowers that have not blossomed yet but still growing to their 8′ or more height. The pollinators – bees, butterflies, lady bugs etc. pollinate the blossoms on the fruit and vegetables. Without the pollinators there is no fruit or vegetable.

      The seeds are put into a paper envelope (never plastic), sealed, dated and marked with their contents and set aside ready for planting next year. These seeds will be planted in late Winter to early Spring to grow just in time to attract the pollinators that every growing garden needs to have food.

      A great, easy and very low cost way to start building good soil is to “Plant” kitchen waste in a 2 gallon tub with a lid kept near the kitchen sink. When its full of used coffee grounds, vegetable peelings, used paper towels, etc. its goes into the soil where the veggies will be planted and the soil is kept damp – like a wrung out sponge but not soaking wet. The insects then digest and enrich the soil. No need to spend big bucks on chemical fertilizers. Grow wisely and healthfully – what comes from the soil goes back into the soil.

      Seeds of all types are already in short supply. Always buy and save your Heirloom seeds., and many other excellent seed suppliers are inundated with orders. Growing your own food in your own garden, windowsill, balcony – in tubs, pots and large containers with holes for drainage drilled into them will seriously extend any meal – deliciously and healthfully.

      Look to the methods they used in Venezuela a few years ago for controlling supplies and bottle-necking people through large grocery stores to dictate distribution. The only difference would be that in the US and Europe you are more likely to see a digitized rationing system tied to behavior and Universal Basic Income, much like China’s social credit system.

      • Rodster April 30, 2022 at 9:10 am

        Would a pissed off and armed US citizenry neutralize that? I just see violence and lots of it, here in the US. We are now seeing more and more riots breaking out around the world because people can’t afford to buy food. And pretty much all those places don’t have an armed citizenry.

            Brandon, anything is possible with the Chinese commies, but don’t you think that locking down Shanghai to spite the Yanks is also going to ruin their economy too? I agree that the CCP doesn’t give a damn about offing millions of its own people, but this move has big risks for them too. The Chinese are almost as sheeplike as we Euros, but there is a tacit agreement over there that the government will give them economic benefits in return for losing their political freedoms.

      • AL May 2, 2022 at 9:17 am

        If this food rationing actually happens (not arguing for or against) then in hindsight it sure seems the very first “two week” covid lock down was a very valuable data collecting event. Recall how the local grocery store looked after the initial announcement? First item off the shelf in my area was TP then all the pasta and easy to prepare foods. In fact, as the covid lock downs persisted, paper products had a limit of one or two per customer. Rationing was already happening on certain items.

        The world is run by the problem, reaction, solution method with lots of important data collecting and analysis along the way.

      You are absolutely right. Serrano pork in Spain and Prosciutto in Italy are salted and air dried pork and lasts many months.. in vacuum package even years.

      I used to work in a seaside city where there was a shipyard in the harbour. My neighbours were contract ship welders from Russia and they were always gone fishing in their free time. Once I noticed weird smell coming from their side. I had to go and take a look what was going on. They were drying fish there.. hanging them on clothes drying wire. Salted fish drying is centuries old tradition everywhere here in the nordic.. but nowadays lost when fresh fish is always available in the supermarkets.

      Dried salted fish can last also years without spoling.

    This was discussed in Food Chain Reaction published in 2015. The worst food crisis was gamed to be in 2022-2024. Then again in 2028-2030, but not as bad as before.

  • D Man April 29, 2022 at 2:53 pm

    China is following the script laid out in SPARS 2025-2028. If you read the end summary you will see that the next leg is destruction of pets and personal farm animals, because PCR tests found them to cause the next outbreak, or at least be promoters of it. Western nations are starting with commercial and personal farm animals while China appears to have started with pets. Of course, none of this ends until digital tracking is in place and people that died from the vax are called heroes who did it for the greater good, while politicians and health professionals get to retire in shame, but get cushy packages nonetheless.

    Cargo ships waiting at China ports went from 260 to 508, hardly a bother with over 9000 cargo ships. There are typically 200+/- cargo ships waiting at Chinese ports on a normal day. Remember years ago when LIBOR took a dip or CAT sales cratered and everyone was up in arms? Same MSM fear porn different day.

    This year won’t be too bad. Next year is another story after people and farms use up leftovers from 2021, which there will be no leftovers from 2022 for 2023. I still see a lot of hay bales from last year laying around and I already smell manuer all-over northern states. Remember, we still have local, state and federal food warehouses that are stocked to the brim. China, Russia, and US/CA/EU are all fighting for who will run the NWO. Kissinger on ESPN in 2011,,
    kept telling a Chinese economist that China better get in line or get rocked, emphasis mine. Kissinger ended with no nations being the winner in the end, which is weird to say, but true, the 10 kings give their power over to rule with the beast.

    Bang on article.

    Those of us who have been paying close attention have already been preparing.

    For anyone living in an apartment or house with little or no lawn space, just start researching KRATKY HYDROPONICS. It is by far the simplest, cheapest and most space efficient way to grow food. You don’t even need electricity if you have a big enough window. No moving parts. Nothing to maintain.

    All you literally need is a plastic bucket, water, seeds, plant food and $20 worth of accessories – and even some of those are optional.

    There are a number of videos on YouTube. Check them out.

    If you can buy high quality lower cost bulk food from your local farms and then preserve it, this may be a good way to fill the depth and breadth of your pantry, more so or in addition to your own gardens.

    Great article Brandon

  • Nick April 30, 2022 at 12:22 pm

    Brandon, great article as always. Anyone- Is Texas conservative enough for this coming craziness/depression? I see more and more ppl coming from Cali and getting me nervous.

    I live in Houston and crime is getting worse every day especially in the inner city/downtown area with the globalist DA and Mayor letting criminals thrive. Thinking about moving to the suburbs like Conro 45-1 hour away at least so that I’m close enough for work but far enough to be away from the mess…

    • Greg B. May 3, 2022 at 8:39 am

      Having lived here my whole life I’d say yes, especially in the rural areas where I live. And the majority of the transplants from California are conservative as well. And even the few that are progressive are more inclined to move to the major cities, which are leftist enclaves anyway. And these places are unfortunately where the seats of power in the state lie. So yeah, you’re better off getting the hell out of Houston and moving to the suburbs or the rural areas.

    I can’t multi task with you Brandon. Got to read slow and absorb it all in. You are absolutely correct they have some twisted fetish about telling us what they’re up to. But as you stated you eluded to you must read between the lines and separate the bullshit. When Biden said late last year “This will be a season of death and despair for the unvax’d” I scoffed. But these warnings about food shortages have me alert. I don’t think they’re pulling our chains on this one. It’s like a criminal that can’t stop boasting of returning to the scene of the crime. As soon as I saw those videos from Shanghai my spidey senses started tingling. I have learned too much over the last couple years to be fooled by cheap ass tricks. It makes no sense what they’re doing at face value. I am speculating it is most likely to disrupt the global economy even further. The numbers you give regarding the wheat supply from the Eurasia area are scary. I get a chuckle thinking about these stupid people over here shrugging it off “Oh I don’t even eat grains.” And I actually don’t but I am not stupid enough to understand this will most likely affect my choices and wallet soon.

  • Luke May 1, 2022 at 4:44 pm

    And sense I’m on a roll, Glenn Greenwald sent out a tweet (or something) about the press yucking it up with Biden at the correspondents dinner. JB said something to the effect “I’m glad to be here with people (the media) who have lower favorability ratings than me.” Now I have a sense of humor and I understand these events are supposed to be self deprecating and light hearted. But as Brandon said in the article you have to separate the lies from the truth. Biden saying that and the media, which I’m certain thought it was a hoot, is very telling. He is telling you that they don’t give two shits about the midterms. It’s inconsequential to their plans. I know most of you here already get it. Still it bothers me though. It’s them laughing in our faces. Since he was installed the border has been a bonanza. Make no mistake that’s not so they can steal your vote or replace you. Both of those plans take patience and planning and have no doubt occurred in the past. But that’s not what is happening here. I believe they have literally opened the gates. There’s no doubt 3rd world countries are going to be sitting ducks for the food crisis to come. Many will come pouring in but not sure it matters at this point. The goal has already been reached I assume. The plan was to create a giant boiling point of an influx of people and cultures that don’t mesh so well. Then pull the proverbial rug out from underneath them. I’m happy to be wrong on this and it’s not going to take long to figure it out. I would say give or take 6 months. If it really gets tight the last place on earth you want to be is any blue state/city USA. Even red state cities will probably be filled with misery and despair. I am trying to discern just how quickly they will pull the plug. If they yank it hard they better go to ground or yacht. I suspect it will be closer to the example Brandon gave in a comment on Venezuela. Tightening and rationing and bread lines. You don’t want to be in one of those lines I promise you. Distract the people who are trying to survive with food shortages. This will keep them at each other’s throats. What a better way to get them to accept a little gun control and martial law huh? Get the population to disarm itself. I am not trying to black pill anyone but we should be aware and anticipating their plans. It ain’t gonna happen on my watch I promise you. If anything I will be dead. But I have an obligation to all of you and my family. I took an oath to myself in 2020 to live as long as I can. It is my plan to be the biggest pain in the ass to these globalist motherf*** elite scum. That is all of our mission.

  • GDD May 1, 2022 at 9:50 pm

    I was laughing when i read this: ” Lucky for the central bankers that covid struck and Russia invaded Ukraine, because now they can deflect all the blame for the inflationary calamity they have engineered onto the pandemic and onto Putin.”
    There is no such thing as “luck” or coincidences when it comes geopolitics. WEF and kissinger puppet, Vladimir Putin is a as much part of the plan as bill gates or the CCP. The never-ending ukraine war is a charade to kick the globalist post-plandemic plan into action.

      Yes, that sentence was sarcasm, hopefully that came across. I’m one of the few people who has been pointing out that Putin is part of the cabal. Read my article on that problem here:

      • GDD May 2, 2022 at 7:10 am

        Thank you for your reply Brandon. I’ve read your article about Putin and about the phony shanghai lockdowns and reposted many of your articles in a couple of discord servers. You seem to be the only who “gets it” , as most of the “alternative geopol analysts” (Paul craig roberts, patrick henningsen, james corbett, whitney webb, etc) are usually anti-us empire, but will never say anything bad about china or putin; probably because they are on the CCP payroll. Thanks

        • Concerned May 2, 2022 at 1:03 pm

          In no way does Corbett fall into that list. He’s even put out material showing the exact opposite, in exhaustive detail going back years, to counter these lies about him.
          Regarding the rest, you’re correct. I used to be a PCR fan until recently. I suspect he’s solidly in the camp of setting people up to demand a new form of government of some sort or other, as part of a problem>reaction>solution position. He’s too smart to post some the garbage he’s recently had about Russia not understanding who their up against, etc. True colors are coming out. Which is a red flag for me that we’re nearing some sort of end game. Same scenario with Tom Luongo, Matt Ehret, and many others. But absolutely not Corbett. That man is on fire and on point. As usual.

          • GDD May 2, 2022 at 3:21 pm

            Modern Disinfo agents can be spotted by who THEY don’t talk about.
            james corbett is always talking about the “globalists”., bill gates, klaus, etc but he will NEVER point out WHO really are the globalists by name.
            same thing with alex jones, and many others
            gates, klaus, fauci are just puppet heads, puppet scapegoats doing their job for their masters.
            I will give you an example.. see the video James he made about 9-11.
            No a single word about Larry Silverstein, about the “pull it” comment he made about the WTC 7 building, and definitely not a word about the dancing mossad agents caught by the fbi in Jersey city. He obviously left out that information for a good reason.

            This is also not evidence of anything. Corbett can’t fit every single piece of evidence into every discussion, just as I can’t fit every single piece of evidence into every article.

          • Rodster May 3, 2022 at 6:50 am

            “I used to be a PCR fan until recently.

He’s too smart to post some the garbage he’s recently had about Russia not understanding who their up against, etc.”

            Part of the problem with PCR is that he’s fallen for the Left vs Right, West vs East, Good vs Bad narrative. He actually thinks Putin is not in on this game of a one world government. He also is quite confused why his finance minister has made bad decision after bad decision that continues to box Russia into a corner. Such as allowing some of Russia’s gold stash to be held outside of Russia. Her economic and banking decisions have also been questioned by PCR.

            When you understand that this is all part of the plan then her actions make sense. The world is heading towards a one world government with a digital currency and a credit social score to fully control the Plebs.

            It’s as if these globalists think they’re playing a game of Sims 4 with the world.

          Actually, I think Corbett is one of the few people who also understands and accepts the reality of the false East/West paradigm. He has been pretty consistent on the collusion between the East and the globalists.

          • GDD May 2, 2022 at 3:30 pm

            The globalists OWN pretty much the whole planet.
            Blackrock and Vanguard own all multi-national globalist companies. All billionaires are just puppets for the trillionaires who really run the show. The globalists run the east and the west. They built israel, they built china, they destroyed the USSR and they are now in the process of destroying the US / EU to install the new world order: chinese communist technocracy.
            Corbett is owned by the CCP. Here he is promoting, another CCP leftist puppet, pepe escobar.
            Notice how escobar refers to the uyghurs as a “islamic threat to china'” LOL

            No, there’s zero evidence that Corbett is owned by the CCP. Him talking to someone that did not understand the Uyghur situation back in 2014 is not proof of anything. Again, Corbet has been consistently anti-China and points out the connections between China and the globalists on a regular basis. He’s one of the few that does.

          • GDD May 2, 2022 at 4:32 pm

            I am still on the sidelines about corbett.
            He definitely has an agenda, and i am sure i am not getting the full picture in his videos, which is why i stopped watching him.
            At this point i know enough to make my own analysis and to figure things out by myself.
            For example in the great bill gates video trilogy he did, he never once mentioned gates’ and microsoft’s connection with israel.
            I am sure that was not accidental, just like he failed to mention the same connection to 9-11.

  • thecollapseexperiment May 2, 2022 at 9:02 am

    I have to say this is the best article I have read in months about what is going on. You are dead on the money with the Chinese lockdowns and economic war. Information from the military community is that war has already been decided. While we waste time money and effort in Ukraine, China is looking for an easy win.

  • GDD May 2, 2022 at 3:37 pm

    Here is another CCP puppet. The revered Paul Craig Roberts, who won’t utter a bad word about china, he is actually apologetic.
    He will never acknowledge the deep connection between the globalists, wall street, china, etc etc…
    Anyone perpetuating the lie about the east vs west, is probably working for the globalists.

      Brandon Smith May 2, 2022 at 3:53 pm

      Roberts is in that camp of people along with Rickards that thinks the globalists are only a “Western” problem – They think the East vs West paradigm is real.

      • GDD May 2, 2022 at 4:26 pm

        It is hard to tell what some people really “think” and what they are being paid to promote.
        If WE could figure out the whole east vs west narrative is phony, i am sure someone like PCR could as well.
        Some people have a real, deep hatred for the “imperialist US” and a love for marxism (i think pepe escobar is one of those).
        I am sure the CCP is more than happy to recruit real marxists to push their globalist communist propaganda, disguised as leftist “anti-imperialist” narrative.

    Great comments by everyone above!
    I’ll only add that besides food potentially disappearing (although not yet in LA stores), my Wells Fargo bank has been pushing hard to eliminate cash. My branch went from 4 tellers to just 1-2 tellers and they say that other branches and even other banks have done the same as they’re constantly hammering to us to do e-deposits to “save time” which further leads me to believe that the “lights out” situation may be coming in the next few months and I would say definitely before the year is over. My only advice is: have cash stored away.
    And to Luke, who posted above, “Amen, brother”.

  • jesse sousa May 8, 2022 at 9:36 am

    I am a farmer in California. Silage corn prices in my area have been consistently rising. The rise in price has been as such:
    2018 $35/ton
    2019 $37/ton
    2020 $42/ton
    2021 $53/ton
    2022 $70/ton
    Also, wheat had remained around $177/ton which was the same price as the late ’70s. Now it is $405. These are pretty wild price movements.

    In response to the food shortages which I was expecting back in December of last year, I have been making various preparations for not only food shortages, but gas, petrol and electricity outages. I may seem alarmist, but if this war in Ukraine continues as long as the west hopes(without any regard for the suffering of both Russian and West Ukrainian people)then we in Britain will not only be very cold and hungry but also living in a nightmare scenario of high inflation and no friends. Our magnificent rent a gob PM Bungling Boris has sanctioned Gazprom Bank and we have thumbed our noses at the EU trading Bloc as per his wishes and as everyone knows by now, the US does not “do” Bi-lateral trade agreements so we can’t even procure LNG. Europe has, by many authorative estimates, less than 1% of their gas needs and the UK only 0.05% of it’s needs. We Brits are sleep walking into a disaster much of our own making but try telling them that and they think you are a nut job!
    Look after yourselves and y’all stay safe(and prepared).

  • NICK May 18, 2022 at 11:48 pm

    Amazing article (thanks Brandon), and also some fantastic replies. The moment that Xiden was awarded the presidency I knew the gig was up. That night I went from almost zero prepping to probably an 8 out of 10 today. A years worth of food, lots of fuel (gas, propane, solar), etc etc. Only a couple other people that I know are on the same page I am. The other family and friends suffer from various degrees of ‘normalcy bias’. They think that cutting back and saving their money (vice buying food preps) is smarter due to things costing more and more. Umm, that’s kinda backwards IMO. Stay safe out there!
