If the back up of the container cargo ships, in American ports, continues much longer, our stores will soon look like what is pictured here.
A Telling Report From Tacoma
The Global Economy Has Officially Crashed
The BDI has officially reached record lows. A global economic collapse is underway.
The Baltic Dry Index has officially hit rock bottom with unprecedented lows. The forces behind the Trans Pacific Partnership have effectively used their influence to greatly stall the delivery of critically important commodities until the TPP is fully implemented among its member nations.
Who is responsible for the crash caused by the failure to move product through the world’s ports?
Trans Pacific Partnership, Was Initiated at U.S. West Coast Ports
on February 13, 2015
The above headlines tells who is behind what is happening, it does not tell you how bad it is going to get. The unions are refusing to backdown and it is for darn sure that the TPP will not backdown either!
The backlog of ships is a crisis being done on purpose because the private multinational corporations want to empty the shelves in supermarkets nationwide for three or four weeks is designed to force the American people to approve the blackmail contained in Trans Pacific Partnership. This is the economic end-game which will permit these multinational corporations to become nation-states across the planet.
Most Americans will fail to notice the threat until they can no longer purchase food in the super-markets, or mail-order prescription medications are not shipped. The sheep of this country will still be in denial that this could ever happen. The unions have now been idled, at major American shipping ports, because the multinational corporate owners of the shipping companies are keeping their ships filled with perishable goods at sea until all governmental opposition to the fast-tracked TPP is ended. Watch this video and listen to the what LA City Councilman, Joe Buscaino says when he states that even if product were to be off-loaded, in force, today, it would still take six to eight months to “get back to normal”. The United States economy does not have six to eight months to recover. It does not have six to eight days to survive the economic Armageddon that is coming.
Meanwhile, While We Slept
While the United States is fully preoccupied with global crises ranging from the fight against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, and the conflict in Ukraine, there is another development on the world stage which threatens the economic health of every single American and American based business. Specifically, I am referencing the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). The protocols of the TPP establish a free-trade zone/bloc stretching from Vietnam to Chile and Japan. The most draconian free trade agreement in history includes nearly a billion people which encompass almost 40% of the world’s economy. Since Obama failed to fast-track the TPP into law last year, he has made amazing progress and America is nearing its fate with economic Armageddon.

The plot to destroy America is decades old. When I have recently spoken of the removal of dissident journalists in programs such Boa and Operation Lightening Strike, and we witness the unfolding of the NDAA and EO 13603 in order to control the masses through food and enforce civilian conscription without compensation, we are merely witnessing the manifestation of a plot introduced generations ago during the Woodrow Wilson administration. All of these efforts are designed to mobilize an unwilling nation to fight World War III. Some are reacting to these revelations as if America has been caught off guard. The fact remains that Americans were not paying attention, and in large part, still are not aware of what is happening to their country. Key Russian defectors
have been warning us for decades that we were being infiltrated by communists.
George W. Bush
tsa goosing granny“America, the most free nation on earth? Terrorists hate us because of our freedom”? Do you remember these words that were uttered by George W. Bush after 9/11? Today, I can barely type these words without laughing hysterically. America has descended rapidly down the path of being a police state and we have been in political free fall since September 11, 2001. Do you also remember when Bush said, “You are either with us, or you are with the terrorists”? The latter statement is not so funny.
I am not going to lie to you America, our country and its values, its economy and the forces that control our country are not what the average American wanta to see. Liberty has taken a backseat to tyranny. However, I believe that freedom is often the result of the space between the prison bars that we create for ourselves on an individual level. Yet, there are five variables that a super globalist elite must control in order to subjugate a nation and its people. The five variables are the media, the rules governing economics, social standards, the political system and the military. This article briefly analyzes the control the super elite have over each of these five areas.
Six corporations control 98% of the media. These same six corporations virtually control everything that most people see, hear and subsequently believe. The CNN’s and FOX networks have successfully turned the majority of our people into sheep who are willing to accept any form of dictatorship so long as it is endorsed and glorified by the news media.
There is, however, a steadily growing group of Americans who have taken off their blinders and who are slowly but surely waking up to the growing tyranny which is dominating our country.
Amazingly, only two percent of the media broadcasts the message of freedom. The growth of the independent media movement is largely due to just two percent of the media which is not corporate owned by such entities as Gannett Broadcasting and Clear Channel Communications. The chances are that you are reading this article on one of the venues which are free to tell you the truth which subsequently states that every aspect of your society is controlled by the Rockefeller/Rothschild banking empire.
If the super elite controls 98% of the media outlets, they control the narrative. However, David is beginning to fight back against Goliath. The 98% majority is beginning to lose the battle with the two percent. Because of the threat to the establishment, don’t look for the alternative media to be around much longer.
Even if the mainstream media absorbs the alternative media, we are still free to interact with like-minded people, at least for the time being. The encroachment of NSA spying, now under the control of the DHS, into our daily lives, which monitors our every communication, is very troublesome. Yet, even the absolute control over the mainstream media may not be cracking as much as we had hoped when we consider the fate of the following journalists:
Ned Colt w/NBC (Top Left) – Bob Simon w/CBS (Bottom Left) died in a car crash – David Carr w/NY Times (Bottom Right) died just hours after interviewing NSA Russian defector, Ed Snowden – Bob Hager w/NBC (Top Right). Photo courtesy of: J. Schuyler Montague. All but Hager are dead as Hager survived a head on collision in his neighborhood. Add to these events, the matter grows more complicated when Brian Williams was deposed in the same time frame. Unless one is an ardent coincidence theorist, one has to consider the unlikely odds that these events are due to chance and ask, what did these reporters know that someone did not want released? These factors all occurred within 24 hours of each other as the coincidence odds continue to escalate. The photo was obtained here.

“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.” —Mayer Rothschild.
For most people, facing the truth is a hard thing to do. It is so much easier to simply ignore the obvious than it is to make the necessary, hard decisions that are required once we know the truth.
Facing the truth takes courage. Dealing with the truth demands courage. But ignoring harsh reality is cowardly. As I often say, “Silence isn’t golden, it’s yellow.”
As any “therapist” will tell you, the first step to healing is admitting the truth about your condition. An alcoholic will never seek treatment until he admits he has a problem. A gambler will never seek help until he admits that he is hooked on gambling. And a woman can never receive healing and forgiveness for a past abortion until she admits that what she did was wrong.
So, too, America is in a mess because we will not admit the obvious. We have failed to deal with what we know to be true. As in ‘The Wizard of Oz’, there really are ‘men behind the curtain.’
I wrote my first commentary shortly after 9/11. I have been faithfully hunting-and-pecking the truth nearly every week for going on 14 years now. I am not some Johnny-come-lately in regards to writing what I believe to be true. You can find over 400 of my commentaries on this website and you are free to comb through them and see for yourself how accurate my writings have been. I wish I had been wrong about so much of what I’ve written, but America is in a state of denial.
It’s about time that we understand and admit to ourselves that President Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim. I don’t know how actively he participates in the Islamic rites and rituals, but there is no doubt that he identifies with Allah far more than he does the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The “War on Terror” is being waged with a Commander in Chief whose administration is full of representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood. You can deny it if you want, but there is an enemy of America in the White House. Yes, folks, Saudi money has bought the White House.
As far as our political system goes, there is very little difference between the two parties. Oh, you can find differences in their advertised ‘platforms’, but for the most part, practicality nothing changes regardless of which party holds the majority. The only difference between John Boehner and Nancy Pelosi is the deceitful words that they spew. Otherwise, very little changes in national policy.
Both the Democrat and the Republican leadership are for bigger government. Neither party represents the will of the people, but rather the will of their lobbyists and donors. Money controls everything. Voting brings very little change. You are free to believe that things will change now that the Republicans are in control, but unfortunately the puppet masters haven’t changed.
In reality, the bankers run the world. It is mathematically impossible for America to ever get out of debt. Balancing the budget won’t do it. Cutting spending won’t do it. Raising or lowering taxes won’t do it. Our monetary system is a debt-based system. Debt drives the economy. The only way out of the financial mess that we find ourselves in is a total collapse of the current system, and it is inevitable.

The move to confiscate all privately held wealth in the United States is well underway. In the past few years, we have experienced bail-outs, planned bail-ins, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is positioning to confiscate all 401k’s and pensions and now the MERS mortgage fraud is accelerating to new heights thanks to a rash of recent State Supreme Court decisions affirming the Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems (MERS) right to foreclose on your home without having recorded a valid title and the foreclosure can take place outside of a courtroom.
For the past 230+ years, the Constitution protected property rights from would-be feudal lords who would suddenly appear with a title to your home and force you out. This practice worked well until the introduction of the MERS Mortgage fraud.
MERS was a conglomeration created by the megabanks for the purpose of administering mortgages. The practice quickly got out of control as one’s home mortgage title could be transfered dozens of times without notifying the homeowner. The practice quickly turned illegal when a homeowner, unknown to them, would be paying their mortgage to a title company that no longer held the title to their home. Then, the title company which currently held the note would show up and lay claim to the home in a repossession proceeding. In some cases, people with completely paid off mortgages had their homes stolen. Eventually, the people pushed back.
Show Me the Note
Eventually, activists like Dave Kreiger, author of Clouded Titles, began to train local officials on how establish a chain of custody one a title. Eventually, the “Show me the note” strategy worked well in court as long as one had an attorney and many illegal foreclosures were headed off. Then MERS restored to the illegal practice of “Robo-signors” in which people off the street were paid to forge a homeowners signature on a series of title transfer documents. The issue of illegitimate foreclosures were at a stand off. However, at least homeowners would have their day in court and they could challenge the legitimacy of the title transfer documents. Recently, because MERS parent organizations of Wells Fargo and Bank of America have begun to exercise undue influence in the State Supreme Courts all across this nation, every homeowner is potentially in peril.
The State Supreme Courts
A rash of State Supreme Court decisions ranging from Illinois, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, California, Indiana, Washington, Colorado and most recently Washington and West Virginia have overturned lower court decision which demanded that MERS produce a chain of custody for titles and that all foreclosures must take place in court. Unfortunately, MERS no longer has to take you to court to steal your property. They no longer have to file a dead of transfer with the court. Thanks to these rulings, they can simply should up and seize your property based upon fraudulent or flimsy evidence. These recent decisions are setting a precedent all across the country for other courts follow.
From Fascism to Feudalism
The late Aaron Russo made a documentary entitled America: From Freedom to Fascism. Russo was correct, America has been under the control of corporations and the banks. However, Fascism is preferable to what we now face. With the ongoing elimination of private wealth across this country, I would entitle the trend cure to be, America: From Fascism to Feudalism.

“I am really good at this, anytime, anywhere”.
In 2012, President Obama was heard, by Whitehouse assistants, bragging to his lackeys about his ability to kill people with drones and that he was really “good at it”. I am sure if we ask Michael Hastings, he would agree that this President is outstanding at killing people with drones.
Michael Hastings ran into a tree at speeds in excess of 70 mph, and the front end of the car was not bent back.
Move over Andrew Breitbart,Tom Clancy and of course, Michael Hastings, the President and his skill with drones has not gone unnoticed by economic expert, Jim Clifton. Clifton, the chairman & CEO of Gallup, a performance consulting company, told the host of a CNBC show on unemployment the following:
That he was worried that he might “suddenly disappear” and that he “not make it home that evening if he disputed the accuracy of the government’s stated unemployment rate“.
Clifton slammed the cheerful spin put out by the government’s propagandists as Obama and his minions said the unemployment rate 5.6%. Clifton referred to Presidential statements to this effect as “The Big Lie”, saying “the real Obama unemployment rate has never recovered and is still above 10% and it’s the worst it’s been in 30 years.”
Jim Clifton, forgot to mention that after unemployment benefits are cut off after six months, that person is counted as employed. If one holds a teaching credential, a license to cut hair or a real estate license, that person is counted as being employed even though there is no proof to support the assertion.
At the end of fiscal year 2013, Shadow Stats conducted a large scale analysis related to the effectiveness of Obama’s economic policies and found the following:

Have you ever sat in a room and couldn’t figure out why people were laughing? They laughed and laughed and laughed as your curiosity grew and grew. And then, suddenly, you realized they were laughing at you! This is what is happening to all Americans. We have been robbed blind and we have scarcely noticed. Now, our very existence is being threatened and people laugh at you for talking about it as they call you a “conspiracy theorist”, “fear-monger” and “the purveyor of doom and gloom”.
Last year, I was roundly criticized when I said the Cyprus bail-in scenario was coming to the United States. I was told there would be a revolution if this happened and the government would be too afraid to try such a thing and that we would have 100 million Americans in the street who would be heavily armed.
Listening to these sheep is like listening to a country song played backwards. You know the song where the wife does not leave, the truck still runs and the cowboy stops drinking. Maybe it is all the fluoride in the water that is causing such widespread ignorance and apathy.
The globalists are preparing to steal everything you own, they have rehearsed for this day, they are on a timetable to carry this plot out and they are laughing at our collective stupidity!
The Beta Tests for the “Grand Theft of the American People” Are Complete
The American people have been through several beta tests related to our private wealth being confiscated and no resistance was offered by the sheep of this country.
The first of the beta tests included the hijacking of our money in the bail-outs. Amazingly, the people just continued on like business as usual as then ex-Goldman Sachs head and then Secretary of the Treasury, Hank Paulson, oversaw the literal stealing of trillions of dollars of the nation’s money by the criminals on Wall Street.
The MF Global debacle stands as a second beta test in which secured investor accounts were stolen by the friends of Don Corzine at JP Morgan. Despite the fact that the stolen money sat in secured accounts, was ostensibly protected by the Securities and Exchange Commission and insured by the FDIC, over a billion dollars was stolen and nobody went to jail. I can still hear the bankers laughing at the collective impotence of the people of this country.
Attention Federal Employees: This is man is stealing from you as you read these words.
Attention Federal Employees: This is man is stealing from you as you read these words.
The appointment of criminal Jack Lew to head the Secretary of the Treasury and nobody cried foul, was the third beta test. Jack Lew was one of the biggest criminals on Wall Street. While at Citigroup, Lew oversaw 113 tax evading accounts in Cayman Island banks. Based upon Lew’s resume, hedge funds for Citigroup where he lost almost 600 million dollars, one can only assume that is why Obama has appointed Lew to finish the job which will leave you and I with nothing. Obama may as well have appointed Al Capone and Capone stole far less money than Lew. But wait, there’s more dirt on Lew. Jack Lew, from Citigroup, was an overseer of hedge funds. You know, the hedge funds originating from the actual criminals that collapsed the economy back in 2008. This is who Obama selected to run the economy. Last year, Lew announced that the government was taking the unprecedented action of avoiding governmental default through this summer by including tapping into and suspending investments into the Civil Service Retirement and Disability Fund and halting the daily reinvestment of the government securities (G) fund, the most stable offering in the Thrift Savings Plan‘s portfolio. This means that when the run on the banks begins to happen, Lew and fellow criminals will move steal all retirement accounts. The handling of these Civil Service retirement accounts was merely a beta test and the sheep remained asleep.

The world is on the verge of a global economic meltdown. What does that mean? The simple answer is that it will not be long until every modern country is consumed by hyperinflation resulting in the crash of most of the paper currencies on the planet. This will result in an economic shutdown. Starvation will become commonplace. Unrestrained violence will occur and eventually the world will slip into World War III.
I literally have at my finger tips two dozen economic indicators which demonstrates that total and global economic collapse is at hand. In the interest of brevity, I will only highlight two of these indicators and if these were the only indicators, an economic collapse would still be in our collective futures.
The Baltic Dry Index
The Baltic Dry Index (BDI) is absolutely the best measure of global economic health. The BDI is used by economists as a leading global economic indicator because it predicts future economic activity. The BDI, uses the U.S. dollar as a benchmark and measures the global supply and the corresponding demand for commodity shipments among bulk carriers. Commodities, in the form of raw materials like grains, lumber, coal and precious metals form the backbone of the BDI. Over time, the BDI is the best indicator of global economic health because, unlike the futures market, the BDI does not engage in speculation as it provide near real time data on what and what is being shipped. The determinations made by the BDI are such an accurate indicator of economic activity because businesses don’t book freighters when they have no cargo to move. In short, the BDI is the world’s financial blood pressure measure. The BDI is said to be one day away from reaching its all-time low. Ultimately, what the BDI tells economists is that we are headed for a depression that will make 1929 look like a picnic. The BDI has fallen on 43 of the past 47 days.
Let’s look at this issue through the lens of common sense. If raw materials are not being transported in sufficient numbers as the BDI is beginning to indicate, what will happen to manufacturing? To the cognitive dissonance crowd, please take off your rose colored sunglasses and honestly answer this question, what does low BDI mean to manufacturing? Low BDI means low manufacturing, period! In turn this means less finished products coming to market. Please note that the BDI includes grains in its analysis. With fewer grains being shipped to market to be packaged and distributed to your grocery outlet, this will lead to severe food shortages. This is not fear-mongering, this is simple Economics 101.
When the full effect of this impending train wreck is felt, there will not be a government in the civilized world that will be safe from assassination. I know, some of you will say that this will never happen. Well, let’s take a look at what Paul Craig Roberts is saying about the conditions in Greece.
Mac Slavo February 5th, 2015 SHTFplan.com
The Baltic Dry Index (BDI) is used by economists and stock traders alike as a leading economic indicator because it predicts future economic activity. The index tracks in US dollars and measures global supply and demand for commodity shipments among bulk carriers including raw materials like lumber, coal, metallic ores, and grains. What makes this particular measurement so distinct from others, according to economic Howard Simmons, is that the BDI “is totally devoid of speculative content” because “people don’t book freighters unless they have cargo to move.”
When cargo is moving the price to move that cargo rises. During the boom-times of the mid 2000′s the Baltic Dry Index hit historical record highs of over $8000 for charter higher rates. It promptly collapsed under $1000 into mid-2008, just ahead of the stock market crash.
What you’re about to see may shock you if you’re of the opinion that an economic recovery has taken hold.
Not only has the index lost 90% of its value in the last several months, but according to Zero Hedge it is just a day or two away from its all-time record lows.
Where is the global economy headed in the next few months?
If The Baltic Dry Index is any guide, it’s about to implode.
And the collapse just keeps going… since Thanksgiving, The Baltic Dry has fallen on 43 or the 47 days, down over 60% from the “China growth is back and all-is-well” hope-filled days of late October (when Jim Cramer “stressed the importance of watching the Baltic Dry Freight Index,” as his bullish thesis confirmation). At 569, The Baltic Dry is inching ever closer to what will be the lowest level ever (554 on 7/31/1986) for the global shipping cost indicator…
One or two more days like this and it will be the all-time low…
It should be obvious, despite the machinations from governments and central banks the world over, that the economy is coming to a standstill. The collapse in the oil price has certainly pushed it along, but the problems go much deeper.
According to many contrarian analysts we’re so far gone that at this point nothing will stop it:
“We are setting up for a collapse that is going to be worse than 1929, and it’s going to come sometime within the next two years. It could come as soon as the next couple of months, but it is going to happen, and there’s nothing that is going to stop it.”
Going forward we will see continued volatility with wild price swings for all asset classes, including gold and oil. It is a sign of a system on its last legs and for those who have failed to prepare a backup plan things are going to be horrific.
It’s imminent. Get ready.
