What does the election of Donald Trump mean to preppers? It means there is a lot of good stuff in the future. End free trade and bring our jobs back from China. Let China know we will no longer bow to them.

While liberals continue to ask why did Hillary Clinton lose the election, the answer lies within her stance on certain issues. What Hillary told the people and want she said to Wall Street were two different things. Rather than addressing the issues, Hillary played on the fears and emotions of minorities. President Obama promised a lot of […]
The democratic party as you know it is dead. Republicans, the party that was “supposed” to fade away into history now controls two branches of government. Democratic party leaders are in their 70s, which are Nancy Pelosi and Bernie Sanders. In two years something like 25 senate seats will be up for election. This gives […]
Donald Trump won the election based on President Obamas failed policies and the fear mongering done by Hillary Clinton. There was also the issue of: Hillary bragging about President Obama and his failed policies. The state department selling arms to ISIS. Email scandal. Democratic National Convention (DNC) rigged primaries. Danney Williams claiming Hillary kept him […]
Who is to blame for Hillary losing the 2016 presidential election? Start by blaming liberal agendas, wall street, liberal elite, globalist,,, everyone who has turned their back on everyday working people. Hillary Clinton losing and Donald Trump winning is the result of the government turning its back on the people for decades. To understand and […]
Hillary lost because working class people are tired of liberal agendas. We are tired of free trade. We want our jobs back from China. We want to be able to afford to buy a home, car, and have a family. We are tired of banks getting bailed out. We are tired of wall street getting […]
At 46 years old I consider myself a little past middle age. That is unless I live to be at least 92 years old. So who knows, I might not even be at middle age yet.
Even at such a young age I look back and realize how much water has gone under the bridge. I wonder how I will feel when I am in my 60s or even 70s, that is if I live that long.
I often wonder how my mom and dad feel about how much things have changed in their lifetime? My dad did not get electricity and running water until he was somewhere around 6 years old. What is it like going from kerosene lamps and an outhouse to computers and the internet?
The past 19 years, from 1995 – 2014, humanity has made leaps and bounds with technology. We went from dial-up internet to smart phones in less than a generation. I look forward to what scientist will develop in the next 20 years.
Lets talk about history for a couple of minutes, then let’s move onto the heart of this article. One of the main reasons Germany was defeated in WW II was the United States and Russia produced more tanks, planes, ships and guns than Germany. We had the resources where Germany did not.
World War II boiled down to numbers. Where Germany could only produce a certain amount of tanks, trucks, planes, and lacked raw materials such as oil and iron deposits, the United States and Russia had no such limitations.
For 35 – 40 years after World War II, or until the late 1970s and early 1980s the United States was the worlds production powerhouse. We made everything from toys to Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles. The economy was strong, there was a thriving middle class who could afford to buy a home, buy a car or truck or both, have a family, times were good.
Then along came corporate greed and free trade. Wall street not satisfied with the profits they were making decided to move the factories to China, exploit low wage workers, then close the factories here in the states which as led to the death of the middle class.
As I said in a previous post, 2013 – 2020 is going to be an interesting phase in American history.
China is set to surpass the United States as the worlds largest manufacturer.
North Korea is starting up a nuclear reactor that in one year can produce enough weapons plutonium for a nuclear weapon. This puts the world on a one year timeline. Either something has to be done about North Korea within the next year, or the world sits back and allows this rogue nation to develop more nuclear weapons.
Sanctions are not working against Iran.
Social Security disability is going broke, with around 14 million people already drawing benefits and 250,000 new applicants every month.
Eurozone facing historic unemployment rates.
Russia set to increase trade with Europe to $500 billion.
In other words, the United States and Europe are going broke, while Russia and China are poised to become world financial leaders.
There is an old saying, “no man is an island.” What affects my neighbor also affects me. If we take a look around the United States and Europe, we see one thing in common, the banks driving the nations into bankruptcy.
Whether its the United States, Cyprus, Spain,,, banks have made so many bad loans they have to be bailed out, and at the expense of the tax payer.
In the long run this spells out two things – the banks end up with property is made bad loans on and later repossessed, and then the tax payer is in debt to the banks for their bad loans.
Cyprus – We should all be concerned about bank bailouts, and we should especially be concerned about what is happening in Cyprus. Instead of taxing the organizations who can afford it, the government is going to take 10% from all savings accounts across the nation.
Saving to buy a home? Saving to put your kids through college? Well, 10% of your money just disappeared.
The writing is on the wall, the United States is a on road of steady decline, and the U.S. government is preparing for widespread civil unrest.
Now for evidence to backup my statement:
China is Now the Biggest Trading Nation of the World – Forget trading with the United States. Since the 1990s we have given our factories and our jobs to China.
The dollar is being replaced as the world currency – Now that China has the factories and the jobs, it’s just a matter of time before the before the Chinese yuan replaces the U.S. dollar.
What is the dollar backed by? A promise to repay our debt, and nothing more. What is going to happen when our debt grows to a point where it can not be repaid? Is the federal reserve going to print more money, which will fuel inflation?
The U.S. dollar is backed by nothing. Now its a matter of time before the rest of the world realizes that.
Homeland Security wants to buy more than 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition in the next four or five years – 1.6 billion rounds? How much ammunition do we need to fight a major conflict, say maybe with China?
Drones over U.S. soil – I sure hope those drones are being used in our war on drugs.
National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) – Just like what happened to Native Americans and Japanese Americans, get ready to be detained without due process, and as long as the government wants.
For those of us who have been watching the United States decline since the signing of GATT and NAFTA, we knew it was just a matter of time before the United States was no longer a world leader.
U.S. exports and imports for the year 2012 totaled $3.82 trillion.
China’s exports and imports for the year 2012 totaled $3.87 trillion.
For the past 20 years free trade has stripped the United States of our factories. If you wanted to start with when the U.S. took its first step towards decline, we need to go back the the 1970s as toy manufacturers moved their factories to china.
In the early to mid-1980s shipyards shutdown all across the southern part of the United States. In southeast Texas alone close to 10,000 people lost their jobs when Bethlehem shipyard in Beaumont Texas and and Livingston shipyard in Orange Texas shutdown. those good paying jobs disappeared and have yet to return 3 decades later.
The reason why the post office is having problems, they are not allowed to have a cash surplus. Any profit the post office makes has to be turned over to the federal government.
Like all other federal programs, the post office has been raided to fund other projects – military, welfare, food stamps, foreign aid,,,.
It’s not that the post office is broke, its federal governments out of control spending that is the problem.
Instead of making companies like google and exxon pay their fair share in taxes, the government gives tax breaks to corporations, taxes the middle class, then bankrupts programs like the post office.
Our roads are falling apart, the US is lagging behind on internet access, our standard of living is declining, social security and social security disability are going broke, and now the government is cutting out saturday delivery of the mail.
While shopping at the local wal-mart here in Jasper Texas, I noticed a couple of things that made me stop and think. One issue was the availability of ammunition, or rather the lack of ammunition. The other issue I am deeply concerned about was the price of a whole fryer chicken.
Ammunition – Everyone and their brother and sister is panic buying all the ammunition they can get their hands on. If civilians can strip the market of all available ammunition, where would this leave the United States if we entered a real war? Iraq and Afghanistan are not “real” wars, they are minor conflicts. The Iraq military is not bombing New York, L.A., Houston or Dallas, tens of thousands of US citizens are not dying every week, its not like in World War II when food and fuel were being rationed,,,.
The United States has some minor conflicts going on, but for some reason the store shelves have been empty of ammunition for close to a month and a half?
How would this translate if/when we have a major war with China? The conflict does not have to be with China. Lets replace China with <any major world power>.
Over the past few decades firearm manufacturing has been consolidated to a just a handful of companies. there are a lot of companies out there, but very few of them manufacturer all of their own parts. the situation is much worse with ammunition manufacturing. Part of our national security depends on our ability to produce weapons of war. The question I am asking myself is if the manufacturing base can keep up with demand. Since the Sandy Hook shooting demand has been outstripping supply.
Surprise, surprise, surprise, the US economy shrank 0.1% in the last quarter of 2012. That 0.1% may not seem like a lot, but the real story its much worse then 0.1%.
Take these factors into consideration:
The economy shrank during one of the biggest panic buying phases in the firearms industry since the 1994 assault rifle ban.
Not only were people spending money on Christmas, but they were also buying all the guns, ammunition and magazines they could get their hands on,,,, and the economy still shrank.
One thing that caused a slowdown in the economy was a reduction in military spending. The question I have to ask, why does government spending play such an important roll in the economy? Maybe the government does not want the people to know how bad the economy really is?
