Supply Chain Problems Will Persist Because The System Is Being Sabotaged

August 5, 2022

This article was written by Brandon Smith and originally published at Birch Gold Group

In a recent interview with Bloomberg, the executive vice president of UPS asserted that “regionalization” of the supply chain is critical to economic stability as geopolitcal conflicts expand. The word “regionalization” is basically a code word to describe decentralization, a concept which the UPS representative obviously did not want to dive into directly. Almost every trade expert and industry insider is admitting that supply chain problems are going to persist into the foreseeable future, and some are starting to also admit (in a roundabout way) that localized production and trade models are the key to survival.

This is something that I and many other alternative economists have been talking about for a decade or more. The globalist dynamic of interdependency is a disaster waiting to happen, and now it’s happening. Without decentralized mining of raw materials, local manufacturing, locally sourced goods, local food production and locally integrated trade networks there can be no true stability. All it takes for the system to implode is one or two crisis events and the economy’s ability to meet public demand stagnates. The system doesn’t completely stop, but it does slowly shrivel and degrade.

The war in Ukraine has been the go-to scapegoat the past few months for supply chain disruptions, but these issues started long before that. Years of central bank stimulus and fiat money creation have triggered the inevitable landslide of inflation/stagflation that alternative economists have been warning about.

Price inflation is a direct contributor to production declines and supply chain disruptions because costs continually rise for manufacturers. Also, wages of workers cannot keep up with rising prices, inspiring many employees to quit and look for work elsewhere, or attempt to live off of government welfare. All of this leads to less supply, or slower production and thus, even higher prices.

We were right, the mainstream media was wrong (or they lied).

New York Times contributor Paul Krugman claimed that “no one saw this coming” when he was recently forced to admit that he was wrong on inflation. This is the same thing MSM economists said after the credit crash of 2008. It was a lie back then and it’s a lie now. Plenty of people saw it coming; we’ve been repeating our warnings for years, but they didn’t want to listen or they did not want us to be heard.

Krugman is perhaps the worst and most arrogant economist/propagandist in the US, and though he belatedly acknowledged the inflation and supply chain threat after arguing for the past two years that it was “transitory,” he now claims that the traditionally accepted indicators of recession “don’t matter” anymore and that there is no downturn. How many times can this guy be proven ignorant and still keep his job?

It’s this kind of disinformation that keeps the public in the dark on what is about to happen. Maybe it’s because of stupidity and ego, or maybe it’s a deliberate attempt to keep the population docile (I say it is deliberate), but in either case the American people are being put in great danger when it comes to the false narrative on inflation and the supply chain. The longer they are led to believe the disaster will simply go away on its own, the less time they have to prepare.

The bottom line is this: Things are only going to get worse from here on. Maybe slowly, or maybe quickly depending on a handful of factors.

Most of the world right now is focused on Taiwan and China’s persistent threats to invade. Nancy Pelosi’s widely publicized plan to visit the island nation (yes, CCP, it is a nation) is a bizarre act of non-discretion that is clearly meant to instigate wider tensions between the US and China. Why would Pelosi do this now? Well, she’s not doing it on her own and it’s certainly not the dementia addled Joe Biden’s idea. There are clearly other hands and other interests involved.

The US sources around 20% of its retail goods from China as well as a large portion of it’s medical supplies. More concerning though is China’s near monopoly on Rare Earth metals which are integral to numerous electronic components. Furthermore, there is a pinnacle threat, which is China dumping trillions in US treasuries and dollar holding and virtually ending the dollar’s world reserve status.

This is not to say China is in a great position financially – They are on the verge of debt crisis as well, which indicates to me that they will indeed invade Taiwan (and possibly other regions) as a means to expand their borders and consolidate resources. With billions of people to feed and control, the temptation for the CCP to seek military conquest is high. If they do, it will be soon – within the next couple of months when the weather in the Taiwan Strait is optimal for naval operations.

The supply chain crisis is going to accelerate into winter as stagflation persists. Price inflation will remain high. The US is indeed officially in a recession today. Two consecutive negative GDP prints IS a recession, this is a fact that no one can change, including Joe Biden, Paul Krugman or Wikipedia. Reality does not answer to these people. The system is breaking, and certain people greatly benefit.

A regional conflict with China on top of the Ukraine war could be the perfect smokescreen for a financial and supply chain collapse that was going to happen anyway. But when the mainstream media talks about the triggers and culprits, they’ll never mention central banks and political corruption, they will only talk about Russia and China.

As I have noted in the past, the “Great Reset” agenda of the WEF, IMF, the BIS and other globalist organizations requires an extensive destabilization of the existing order. In other words, they need a controlled demolition of certain pillars of the economy. To frighten the public into accepting new collectivist and authoritarian models like the “Shared Economy” (where you will own nothing and like it), they will need a large and semi-chaotic disaster. People would have to be threatened with the loss of supply certainty and they would have to be unsure every day of where they will be able to get the necessities they need when they need them.

This level of uncertainty drives calls for solutions, and the globalists will be there to offer their pre-planned objectives and “save the day.”

Generally, inflation and shortages lead to price controls, government rationing, government “aid” with strings attached (Universal Basic Income), and eventually nationalization of all production as well as the attempted confiscation of supplies from people that prepared ahead of time. Redistribution will be the name of the game. Maybe not this year, maybe not next year, but soon enough.

The limited corporate calls for “regionalization” are too little too late, just as the Federal Reserve’s interest rate hikes are too little too late. They all know it, and they don’t care. These actions are only designed to make it appear as if they tried to save the system so they have deniability of their involvement in the crisis.

Stagflation and supply chain shortages are going to become the all encompassing issues of our era. They will be terms that are spoken about daily at every dinner table in America and probably through most of the world. These are dangers that were predicted extensively by the liberty media well ahead of time. They are NOT a surprise. And, there are plenty of institutions, corporate and government, that could have done something about them, but they chose not to. It’s important for people to accept the fact that this crisis is not a product of stupidity; it is a product of malicious motives and intent.

    “Supply Chain Problems Will Persist Because The System Is Being Sabotaged.”
    Indeed. It’s True, absolutely true! Order out of chaos, again and again!
    The supply chain problems had already started 2 years ago, in the second half of 2020.
    Many naive people – so naive! – think the problem is: CV19, Russia, China or any other scapegoat that serves the globalists interests.
    While reading this brilliant post dealing with economic and geopolitical issues, I remembered 2 articles you wrote: “The worst thing is that central bankers know exactly what they are doing”, and this one: “Explanations on the end of the economic game”. Everything is said about the duplicity of the globalists and their agents, especially in the media.
    One of their objectives is to mislead the public about the real economic situation in the United States and hide the main culprits. Unfortunately, it works quite well for a large part of the American public.
    Right now, European leaders and the media are already preparing the public for a difficult autumn and an uncertain and chaotic winter. On the agenda? Major shortages, regular power cuts, rationing (this is already happening in Germany…), etc.
    No surprise for this website readers.
    P.S: Brandon, your articles have helped me a lot to understand the current situation.

    “””The longer they are led to believe the disaster will simply go away on its own, the less time they have to prepare.”””

    That is the most important sentence you could have written at this time. So many seem to think they can somehow stop what is going to happen. It can not be stopped, only survived by those who prepare for it.

    But what I see mostly is people who want to change the system from within the system instead of getting out of the way as it inevitably collapses.

    Buy as much food as you can, as quickly as you can. if you have money left over, buy some silver so you can survive and get to the other side with some wealth. And lastly, remember it is mostly a mind game they play, and YOU should take control of that game.

    • Gauntlet33 August 5, 2022 at 5:43 pm

      “Buy as much food as you can, as quickly as you can.”
      I hear you on preparing, but I often wonder to myself, how much is too much? I heard a youtube prepper say to buy minimum 2 years of food. For a family of 6 that could mean spending $50k+ on canned and dried foods, which most spouses would kill the other for doing. Luckily, my wife is okay with me prepping, but storing that amount of food — whether hindsight proves to be the right thing – is to put it bluntly simply insane.

        It depends on the type of foods you buy. A 50 pound bag of rice and a 50 pound bag of beans lasts a long time (months), even for a family. Same goes for wheat and other grains. People used to store a year’s worth of food or more regularly to survive, it’s not all that hard.

        • Karl W Hubbard August 6, 2022 at 11:21 pm

          But it takes fuel (wood, oil, coal, NG etc ) to cook your grains. If there is sudden loss of food distribution, there will likely be a shut down of electrical/natural gas/ gasoline. Will a couple of solar ovens be enough to cook during the summer? Perhaps they will, and if you are already heating your home during the winter with firewood or coal/fuel oil etc, then cooking “goes along for the ride” with heating you home.

          I have rethought the benefits of pressure cooking and canned food. Maybe only a few years max storage life, but your energy imputs for cooking will already have been spoken for. You don’t want to be cutting, splitting and hauling firewood to cook your grains and baking bread. Maybe just a little to warm it up.

            If you don’t have a means to stay warm and dry then you’ll probably die in the winter anyway. Fire is easy. It doesn’t take much to boil water for grains, just burn a few sticks. Get a rocket stove, it uses very little energy. A propane stove with a couple 20 pound tanks will last you half a year or more if you only use it for cooking. Keeping a house warm in the winter is another issue, though. That takes planning. If you don’t have much fuel, set up a tent INSIDE your home in the smallest room and use whatever means you have to keep that warm in the winter. Cook in that room and use that for heat. The tent will help retain a bubble of warmth around you and the room will shield you from the elements.

          • Rodster August 7, 2022 at 10:09 am

            Brandon, any portable propane stoves you recommend? Also how about butane stoves, do you recommend those?

            For home use I would get a larger tabletop stove or a camp stove with is own legs. Better to have something that can handle your pots and pans. I don’t have any specific brand recommendations – there are many that will do the job.

          • Gauntlet33 August 8, 2022 at 12:47 pm

            Brandon, good advice there. My wife and I often imagine a scenario where utilities are off as the grid is down and having to use a tent in the warmest / smallest room.

          What made America great?

          What made America/United States great decades ago, was the fact every citizen understood the value of land, and their personal/family ability to produce a product. Weather it was beans, rice, corn, Sorghum Syrup, blacksmithing, printing, timber, or the products of some other craft, trade or resource, the average United States citizen were some of the most powerful/empowered citizens on earth. Not because they held huge monetary wealth, but because the rest of their family, community, and country could not do without their most valuable support of growing food, and community-based manufacturing. . . .

          To survive what is coming, we as people, need to understand the value of saying no with resolve and firmness. We need to make sure we’re not selling out our God given empowerment, by tolerating ideas that take away our freedoms to produce. Said another way, if we have to buy everything we need and can produce nothing, we’re in captivity and bondage.

          To shortly sum up and in short, it is lifestyle, that is going to help people survive this time of coming trouble. We have to be producers…. Yes we may need to stock food to help us and our families jump start our productivity, but there is no way you can buy enough food and supplies to outlast a destructive world plan that has been been quietly in the works, not long after the founding of the United States of America.

          Life style….
          Grow your food for you and your community.
          Begin manufacturing something of value?
          Build a forge or blast furnace.
          Learn to build.
          Develop a cheap way to process timber.
          Learn about geology.
          Learn to find Iron ore in your creeks and streams.
          Begin to remember the old ways.
          The info is still out.
          Learn to be a midwife.
          To build and use looms.
          Spin wool ect.

          Lifestyle is the determining factor as to whether we are truly free Americans,
          or weather we, like everybody else, are dependent upon the system.

      • Jdode August 7, 2022 at 7:34 pm

        For $200, a family of four can purchase (8) 20lb bags of beans and (8) 20lb bags of rice to feed them for a year. I would rather spend $400 right now on beans and rice for 2 years, than to go to the store everyday next year and only come home with food three times a month. How would you explain to your starving family that you could’ve spent $200-$400, 1-2 years ago and would’ve had enough beans and rice for 1-2 years. But, you didn’t, because you were whining about eating the same thing everyday? Go buy beans and rice now. You’ll need 5 gallon buckets with lids to keep mice from getting into it. Next spring, plant bush beans and potatoes. Learn to garden and preserve food. You’ve been warned. This is not going away.

      • Gauntlet33 August 8, 2022 at 12:42 pm

        Hey guys, I should probably clarify, that I’m not judging others when I say that it’s insane to stock up…rather, it’s my own feeling that I feel like I’m the one who’s insane when I stock up, but yes, I mostly only do it as I don’t want to hear my kids saying, “Dad, I’m hungry” and not having at least something to feed them.

      • JustOneGuy August 8, 2022 at 2:06 pm

        If you are ‘late to the game’ concentrate SOLELY on Staples. PM may – or may NOT – serve any useful purpose for upwards of years…other than for getting you killed, dependant on how far down everything falls.
        I’m thinking that’s going to be far enough that true recovery won’t happen in any of our lifetimes. One way or another a miscalculation will be made on someone’s part and things will head for oblivion before it concludes.

        • Gauntlet33 August 8, 2022 at 4:03 pm

          Hey JOG, I don’t know if I’m late or early to the game. I just know that I’ve got now 4 kids ranging from newborn to 8 years old who are picky as hell when it comes to foods. And yes, if starving, I’m sure they’ll eat the nearest cricket, or some old rice and beans, which is why I bought up a bunch of spices to “spice it up” a little. Got a bunch of canned foods too. And honey, since that lasts forever. And I tend to agree that precious metals may be fairly useless during the chaos (even as barter), as some will see it’s long-term “investment” value, but others may see it as a heavy brick, but that they’ll eventually regain their status as money once the economy gets back on track.

          • Daniel V August 9, 2022 at 7:04 am

            Hey JOG and Gauntlet33, it’s nice to hear that you are all made extensive prepartions to fight in the upcoming storm. I’m still in a tough spot for perparing. Currently, I’m selling some things that I don’t use anymore to save cash in buying more useful things for the physical civil war. However, this doesn’t change the fact that my family is all deep asleep. While I am watching videos in growing food and making water, I can NOT do it here in NJ as they are very anti gun and I have no hope here to protect resources against the many leftist mobs that is surronding NJ. I know that I’ll have to make a move very soon because I’ll bet that by mid september, NJ will go full socialist and transform into a complete orwellian police state. At this point, I could care less about going to community college, I just want to move to a milita group in missouri or the middle states. But once again, my parents still want to force me to go into community college in the middle of a civil war and our tyranncial government increase the age requirement to hold a gun >:(. What is the best course of action that I could take at the moment? Because with the media reigme trying to promote another false plandemic, my own family will go full medical tyranny against me and force me to take the pox jab “for the greater good”. I do not want to be present with them anymore.

            I wouldn’t worry too much about the Monkeypox hype, that’s not going to go anywhere. They failed the lockdowns with covid which means they’ll fail with anything else they try. Find good friends who are on the same page, first. If you relocate cold into a new community expect to start from scratch in most cases when building up relationships. If you have at least one or two good friends that are preppers where you already live it makes all the difference. If you don’t know anyone that is prepping then yes, you might have to relocate. Just know it’s not going to be a walk in the park; it takes a while to acclimate to a new community and start to find people of like mind. Don’t expect a militia group to welcome you with open arms. In fact, if they don’t vet you at all I would be suspicious. If you relocate, make sure it’s a red state.

            Hey Daniel, I don’t think anyone here who doesn’t know you can be right to guide you as to which direction you need to go in other than yourself as you know your situation and surroundings the best, you know your strengths and weaknesses and what you’re willing to tolerate. So just do what’s right for you using your logic and intuition and hopefully God will guide you as well. Also, I figure that worst case scenario your family would only put a lot of social pressure for you to vaccinate…they won’t be putting a gun to your head to do so, so you’re not really forced. I don’t have a clue which things you’re buying, but I would guess that being a young man you don’t have a lot of money, so I would advise to buy the bare essentials like some canned tuna / sardines, etc. I’m not sure why you mentioned Missouri, but I would advise to go to a place where there’s lots of water and is temperate in weather. I don’t think you need to stay out of all the “big cities”. For example, I was in Columbia, SC, the weather was nice, and it had a very small town feel to it and there’s probably a lot more job opportunities and even militia groups there.

          • JustOneGuy August 9, 2022 at 2:35 pm

            Howdy G33…and Daniel V below,
            First things first here; Daniel, if the circumstances of your life are as dire as you describe then your choices are – unfortunately- stark.
            You sound like a committed individual who by misfortune of birth ended up in ENTIRELY the ‘wrong parking lot’. We’re I you, I’d assess my personal finances, and SERIOUSLY begin looking to relocate AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
            I truly wish you the best of fortune Brother, heart-felt and sincerely. I would heartily recommend considering MO, MT, ID but not AK – WAY too expensive unless you’re fully financially prepared for that. Yes, it IS AK I will be returning to personally…but having a full Military Retirement affords me options which I suspect are well beyond your means and I have been wholly AWARE of what is now oncoming for a very long time indeed and have been in full prepper-mode for at least 20 years diligently. May He Bless you and GUIDE you to where you need to go Brother.
            Hahaaa…yes, the little ones are picky, picky, PICKY…ain’t they? One of the staples you can put a LOT of away is – believe it or no – Bread Flour…but you simply MUST remove all the air from it as possible AND store it in a cool place (SEALED TIGHT) where the temps don’t vary much – fluctuating temps STRONGLY foster the growth of every nasty that thrives in that.
            I have – here – put up about 450 lbs of that in the seal-tight, food grade buckets and what I put away two years ago is unchanged as yet. I expect that under optimal conditions you could get several years storage out of that. The trick is to fill each to overflowing then either vibrate the container OR simply pick it up a half inch off the floor and tap it on the floor HARD…about 30-35 times. As you do you’ll see the flour level DROP significantly; rinse and repeat until the container is utterly full, then cap it OFF. Sugar packs similarly and either the buckets I mentioned OR 2 litter soda bottles work wonders for storing both.
            I truly hope to see as many as possible come through the Dark Night to come whole and hale.
            Good luck everyone.

          • Gauntlet33 August 9, 2022 at 3:13 pm

            Daniel, one more thing, having made some big, irreversible mistakes in my life, I will say that sometimes it’s the decisions or things that you don’t do that matter more than anything else. In other words, think heavily on whether even moving to another state is right for you as you may find yourself with no family or friends to lean on for support, and that right there may be the biggest difference maker in the outcome of your life.

          • Justa Guy August 11, 2022 at 12:02 pm

      • kal August 15, 2022 at 10:15 pm

        G33, Politely suggest 3-5 years at minimum. If things go bang, it could culminate in multiple problems forming a “perfect storm” situation. If not, you will either use and consume the food and you won’t need to do a lot of shopping and the dry food you’ll have 5 -25 years to fit that stuff into your eating routine.

      • Devon Seamoor August 16, 2022 at 11:25 am

        Gauntlett33, I strongly suggest you make your own mind up about prepping. No one can know how long and how serious a period of scarcity will last, and it also depends on the willingness and ability of a community, a village population, or a group of neighbours, to join hands and start an allotment, or a bunch of them, creating a co-operation. Emigration is an option too, moving to a place where food is plenty.
        To have a piece of land growing vegetables is a wise plan, but when it’s about the storage of food, I suggest all dry food, such as grains, beans, and even jerky (dried meat).

        In creating a water reservoir, if there’s no well, and no tap water at some point, create a system that saves the rainwater from the roof of the house, or use large containers, fill them with tapwater, and add Chlorine Dioxide to the water. It’ll keep it fresh for 4 years when stored in a cool place in the dark.

        Check out Jim Humble’s Health Recovery Guide book, for water storage, and treatment of inflammation, for people and animals. The remedy will keep your family going without the need for a doctor. An oxidizer, also great for snake- and insect bites.

        About food supplies when shops are empty and closed, there’s a whole world out there, in unspoiled nature, where edible plants, herbs, fruit, nuts, and plant seeds are ready to be harvested. Use the library without walls, the internet, to inform yourself.
        Use your own discernment, and don’t use fear as your advisor. Build confidence by activities that result in the security of body, heart, and mind. We’ll be in this time of transition, where change will lead us to the liberation of our planet, and all will be well.

  • Rodster August 5, 2022 at 8:56 am

    Yes, yes and yes. The system has been and is being sabotaged deliberately. When China shuts down a major city of millions because of 4 Covid cases that were asymptomatic a giant red flag should go up. When the US Gubmint is now conditioning the idiots about Monkeypox, that they want to make it a national emergency when it is a problem to gay men, a giant red flag should go up.

    The World Economic Forum are now conditioning the Plebs about why eating insects is good for you. They are deliberately trying to put farmers out of business to create greater food shortages. Meanwhile food shortages are already real not because of the Planned-demic and Scam-demic but because of the Lockdowns.

    Chris Martenson just posted a YT video on the Dutch Farmers Revolt. There is hope because people and farmers around the world are now connecting the dots. The Dutch farmers saw what happened to Sri Lanka and they are trying the samething in the Netherlands and the Dutch farmers are giving the Globalists the big giant middle finger.

    In the Martenson video, Italian, Spanish, Polish and German farmers have joined forces with the Dutch farmers. Here’s a link to the 31 minute video.

    One of the reasons I knew the pandemic was a fraud was I had to admit to myself that if there truly was an impending cataclysmic event coming, they wouldn’t say a thing to help us. I knew if covid was really what they said it was, they woudn’t have mentioned it beforehand, they would have just quietly retreated to their underground bunkers and enjoyed their depopulation dreams coming to fruition while of course issuing edicts on TV claiming to be in various locations. Instead of social distancing, they would have been promoting and facilitating large gatherings.
    If an asteroid was coming, they still wouldn’t say a word. It would have to be some independent scientist.

    Lol we all know they stole the election; the documentary 2000 miles shows it all on camera. Doesn’t matter. Anyone who obtained at least a C grade in a single probability and statistics class knows the vaccines are getting us. Doesn’t matter. What does it matter if we all know it’s malicious intent? Lmao it doesn’t seem to matter.

      Millions of us never took the vaccine. Yes, of course it matters that people know.

        Exactly. Knowing deliberate, malicious intent v. negligence is necessary to prosecute the traitors (vigilante style).

        hear, hear! no poison for me thank you. Last number I saw was 82.3% of the US willingly sacrificed themselves at the altar of the fraud-cian impostor. With everyone in gov saying jobs are great, why is it that places large a d small across the Republic are experiencing worker shortages to the point of closing their biz. A little voice out there says well the gov is paying you not to work, to which I ask, maybe there’s another reason, maybe ask a local funeral home.

          Yeah, I wouldn’t trust the CDC vax numbers at all. There’s a reason why they have been so aggressive about vax propaganda. If they actually had 80% of the population in compliance then they wouldn’t need to put so much energy into the narrative. Also, there’s no way for them to know because there is no tracking system in place for who did and who did not get the vax. That’s what they were TRYING to put in place with the vax passports, but they failed.

          • DB August 10, 2022 at 2:39 pm

            We need to add those that are single and doubled vaxxed, but have decided not to get the booster shorts, to the number of unvaccinated. They have clearly decided they are done with vaccinations. In a recent article found on cnbc, it stated “A CLEAR MAJORITY of Americans, nearly 228 million, or roughly 70%, of Americans were unvaccinated, hadn’t completed their primary vaccine series or hadn’t gotten their first booster dose as of July 21, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.” The CDC provided similar data. If these are their official numbers, it is likely that the numbers are even higher. It’s the same in Canada. No wonder they’re accelerating their timetable. Most people have wised up, at least to vaccines.

          5.8 million out of the 10 million people in Michigan took the vaccine, definitely not 80%+.

    “Almost every trade expert and industry insider is admitting that supply chain problems are going to persist into the foreseeable future…”
    Why does one have a persistent ‘supply chain problem’?
    Start with… it’s tougher to find goods and products and needed resources. Add to that, many people do not want to work anymore as honest work is now seen as a fools game or the relic of a past age. Fewer and fewer want to find, process, deliver, and vend product at every stage of the supply chain. Add to that… the high cost of everything to do business along the entire chain. And there is no fix for any of these things right now.
    Will America magically rebuild its factories and industrial base that it foolishly leveled beginning in the 1960s? Will people suddenly rediscover the virtues of honest work and find pride in performing services that everyone depends upon? Will costs magically come down in the face of non-stop money conjuring that devalues existing dollars every single second?
    What cannot continue will not continue. They have just about strung out the existing system as far as it can be stretched. What will happen then?
    The existing power structure will try to ‘Own Everything’ that’s left and selectively dole it out based upon one’s loyalty to The State. And when that system collapses or is foiled by forceful resistance from the public… it is then that local economies will prosper by default. People still have to eat and they still need vital services. And people will find a way to have them regardless of the larger social engineering plans that are being imposed upon them.
    Historians of the future will express amazement that our House of Cards economy has lasted as long as it has. But that’s the funny thing about Reality. Reality always wins in the end.
    Our question for the future is how will We the People rediscover our pride in ourselves and the value of honest work again and begin to think positively in all aspects instead of living our moments in surrender and fear and a dread of tomorrow. Finding our way back to ourselves might be a tougher road than trying to rebuild a badly broken supply chain.

    We might even build a new factory one day. But will we find someone willing to work in it without looking at the small box in their hand all day?
    And will they show up for work the next day?

      They will want to work in a year when jobs are no longer easy to find. The anti-work attitude of younger people is predicated on the excess of jobs. As the jobs disappear, they will be begging to flip burgers or do anything else to make money. Everyone has to eat.

      • ruralcounsel August 9, 2022 at 3:20 pm

        The globalists intend to make sure the only way to eat is to come into their concentration camps and be fed by them. Money will be worthless, food unobtainable at any price. This is how you control masses of people … make it so they can only eat if you provide it and you let them.

    Our only chance is a mass awakening. If you’ve run out of family, friends, [or former friends!], and coworkers, perhaps “Nextdoor” will work for you. I stumbled on them about a month ago. It is a neighborhood chat room.

    After signing up, I didn’t post anything. I would just read the comments that others posted. It was easy to get an open door for the neighborhood “Truth Warrior” to save the day! I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of truth I was able to share.
    Censorship has been at a minimum. I’ve actually had people thank me for posting. Perhaps this will work for you.

    For anyone questioning whether this is all planned or just a coincidence needs to listen to Gordon Brown many years ago. He admits that the governments are following the Klaus Schwab plan. It was never a conspiracy it was always the agenda.

    • Rodster August 9, 2022 at 7:03 am

      They have chosen to collapse everything now as they see a rise in opposition around the world to their plans and agenda. That’s the reason for their desperation.

      • ruralcounsel August 9, 2022 at 3:17 pm

        Here is to hoping they can’t control the collapse they caused, and that it indeed blows up in their faces.

        • Daniel V August 9, 2022 at 5:23 pm

          Oh ruralcounsel, it will blow up at their faces (and badly). With our current military now being a joke and the leftists being nothing more than coward weakings, I sincerely doubt, the country will fall completely to them. Obviously the UN will still come but even then, they probably are likely just as weak as the current us army. However one thing I’m not sure off is the special forces members within our military: mainly the green berets, delta force, socom, DEVGRU ( seal team 6) . What are the special forces soldiers going to do? Will they join with the rest of the counter military or will they go along with the plan? I would like to know how the “special forces” are going to react in this eventual event of the physical civil war.

          • Josh August 15, 2022 at 8:11 am

            I have an old friend from high school who ended up in special forces, I personally believe they will side with the government.

    There must be some local, grass-roots platform for reconstruction of manufacturing in Montana or perhaps even establishing something that has never been?
    What resources do we already have for this right now anyway, given that you’ve been around a while?

    • Avatar photo
      Brandon Smith August 9, 2022 at 3:25 pm

      I don’t think a grassroots platform for manufacturing reconstruction exists anywhere in the US, because the majority of Americans still don’t realize how bad the situation is about to get. You’ll find almost no interest in economic reconstruction until it becomes clear to more people that the existing economy is about to collapse. Sadly, even if they are aware of the danger most people do not organize on a large scale to counter a threat until it is already at their doorstep knocking on their heads. The best you can do is promote ideas for rebuilding and hope that when the rest of the population catches up to you they will remember hearing about your solutions.

    Brandon are you going to post an article on what the FBI did yesterday at the Trump mansion? More in line what this means for civil unrest and possible breakup of the USA etc? FYI, I did not vote for either candidate. Just curious on your thoughts !

        You may want to speak on it. The actors involved may be fraudulent, but it’s starting to take on a life of its own, or maybe a better way of looking at it is some people are giving it a life. If it gets too out of hand, I am reminded of Slim Charles saying in The Wire, “so what, if it’s a lie, then we fight on that lie.” That SF congressman saying he’s getting death threats and the right “doesn’t want community” and “they think they can win with violence because they can’t win with votes” had my blood boiling this morning, and I think that’s the point.
        I never imagined President Warp Speed being the cassus belli, and it’s sickening, but this situation warrants close attention. I have also noticed the parallels between Trump and the 1st century BC Roman radical reformer Catalina, and his presidency and the Cataline conspiracy. Would Trump turn into a real populist reformer if the big club put the financial screws to him? Have they been holding his unsatisfied 90s bankruptcy over his head to keep him controlled?
        Somebody inside the big club facing losing everything might indeed go Catalina. And even if we have to wonder if Catalina would have even gone this route if someone like Crassus had bailed him out or if the optimates would have helped him with his debt, they didn’t, and he wound up fighting dying behind his cause. I still assume Trump is just playing his controlled opp role in all of this, feigning outrage to get people to react and get J6’d, but if they plan to actually destroy him (financial ruin, prison, assassination)…then I don’t know, maybe even the Epstein tapes they may have on him might not stop him from going off the reservation at that point.
        And I’m still not seeing why Cicero and the optimates were trying so hard to provoke the populists into doing something, just as the elites are doing now, as though that was and is the key to their victory. The way I see it, all the populists have to do, then as now, is once they act, simply don’t stop until the thing is dead, even if they have to destroy everything in the process. Don’t be “decent” (a sucker) like John Baker in England in 1481, and let up. The people can rebuild it, the oligarchs and bureacrats can’t.
        Interestingly, in all of Cicero’s writings on the subject of the Cataline conspiracy, he never delves into what exactly the populists’ gripes were, eventhough he himself was weighed down by debt and chronically suffering cash shortages at the time. There seems to have been a serious credit cruch at the time, but it is never mentioned by Cicero or any ancient Roman historians. Just like today.

    —“Two consecutive negative GDP prints IS a recession, this is a fact that no one can change, including Joe Biden, Paul Krugman or Wikipedia. Reality does not answer to these people. The system is breaking, and certain people greatly benefit.”….B Smith

    —“You can ignore reality but you can’t ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.”…..Ayn Rand

    —Unfortunately it’s not just the leaders and media ignoring reality, but a sizable portion of the population has learned to pretend that happiness is only important today. They can’t see one nose length past their faces. It’s a very unsettling thought to me. There’s simply no way those who have been visionary to not feel the consequences as well. In other words, we are all in the same boat.

    —The food supply is what I find the most troubling. If disastrous it’s not something that can be readily fixed when normies begin to complain. Whatever it’s going to look like this winter and next year is now unstoppable. If it only affects some of the poorer countries you can believe that will be used as an excuse for the government to seize production and/or supply. A province in Canada just made it illegal for a farmer to sell food directly to an individual. I intend to keep an eye on things like this to come. It should be a handy weather vane to gauge what comes next.

      Township in Michigan, If you have a garden, it may not exceed six feet by four feet, additionally must either raised bed or container, no tilling of the ground soil. Said garden can only be in a rear yard and hidden behind at privacy fence. Also included in the new rules, no raising of chicken for any purpose allowed. That is also a new ordinance in North Carolina, no private ownership of chickens.
