Does your government love you? Will it protect you through the tough economic times ahead?
Or, will those Americans who are viewed as a burden to society, suffer the same fate as an unwanted dog in a humane shelter?
China’s stock market is failing along with the sell out of the Greek people and the collapse of their economy. In Greece, it is merely a matter of time until the entire country goes up in flames and results in a civil war. This is merely the tip of the iceberg. The “civilized world” as we know it, is in an undeniable economic meltdown.
With regard to the present set of economic circumstances, the pattern in history is always the same:
1. The government anticipates an economic meltdown. When they cannot spend their way out of the impending depression, they move to the next predictable step.
2. The government, fearful of civil unrest directed at them over the economic failures of their nation, begin to erase all civil liberties and frequently disarm the people in a move motivated by self-preservation. An unmistakable police state type of government emerges and the people live in fear.
3. Just prior to the economic collapse, government goon squads “remove” dissident leaders and others who may follow them. “See something, Say something” snitch, snatch and grab practices are enforced by the self-appointed Gestapo of that society. Frequently, a false flag event is carried out and is blamed on the targets of the purge, thus, gaining temporary acceptable from those citizens who just hope to be left alone.
4. When Jade Helm type of dissident leader extractions fail to quell the growing sense of public unrest, wholesale roundups and subsequent exterminations take place.
This four step descent into abject and genocidal tyranny is precisely where the modern nations are headed. All nations, in the modern era, will soon walk this path and produce the darkest days the planet has ever witnessed.
The emergence of secret police, the erasure of civil liberties, deaths squad executions of perceived dissident leaders, and mass roundups and executions of the masses of people that are no longer needed, or who will not comply, are carried out. America, ask yourself, what is the purpose of the NDAA and Executive Order 13603?
Spain and Italy Will Soon Go the Way of Greece
Demonstrators with their mouths taped sit outside the Spanish parliament during a protest against Spanish government’s new security law in central Madrid, Spain, early July 1, 2015. Spanish government’s new security law, which toughens fines for unauthorized street protests, comes into effect July 1. Critics consider it a violation of the right to protest and a limit to free expression and have labeled it “Ley Mordaza” (Gag Law). REUTERS/Juan Medina – RTX1IIKE
The New York Times reports that under a new Spanish law that went into effect on July 1, citizens can be fined the equivalent of almost $700 for insulting an officer, over $33,000 for recording and disseminating images of police officers, and more than $664,000 for participating in an unauthorized protest outside government buildings.
The law covers Internet surfing and I want to specifically point to portions of the law which target illegal downloading, habitual access of websites that allegedly promote terrorism, and violent protest. Didn’t the Obama administration grant themselves the same censorship powers with the implementation of Net Neutrality?
The Common Sense Show will soon be banned in Spain and viewers could be punished, at least according to emails I have received from Spain. Additionally, Spanish citizens can no longer report police brutality or protest outside the Spanish legislature. Nazi Germany has once again returned to Spain. The message in Spain is clear, “you may not protest against tyranny”. The Spanish government is telling the people what is coming. The same could be said about the United States.
At the heart of the Spanish law, a blind man could see that the intent is to squash all criticism of the government. Why? Because Spain’s economy is on the verge of collapse and will soon become the next Greece. Italy will follow Greece and then we will see the wholesale collapse of the EU.
The typical pattern in world history is that when an economic collapse is anticipated, civil liberties, including gun ownership are erased. This has become a typical pattern in Europe since the global economic meltdown of 2008. Following the evisceration of civil liberties, mass detention centers are planned for and built. Europe is no exception to that rule. In fact, most modern nations have followed in the footsteps of this past practice with regard to an economic collapse including the construction of what we in America call, FEMA Camps.
What They Won't Tell You About Jade Helm

Over the last six years Michael Snyder of The Economic Collapse Blog has published over one-thousand research papers, articles and reports detailing the financial, economic and monetary crises sweeping the world. While he has often urged his readers to prepare for calamity, he has never issued a specific date or time-frame for the trigger that would send the whole system into a tailspin.
In his latest must-watch interview with Future Money Trends, Snyder sets the record straight and explains why he recently issued his first and only “Red Alert” to readers warning of an impending, far-reaching event that will touch ever corner of the globe.
I’ve never done this before, but as an attorney I’m trained to be level-headed and trained to only come to conclusions that are based on the evidence.
As we came up to the last half of 2015, examining everything I’ve been told, everything I’ve learned, everything I’ve researched… all the data points were just screaming that a financial collapse is imminent within this six month time period, which actually starts today.
I believe a financial crisis is imminent… similar to what we saw in 2008 but eventually it’s going to be much worse.
When I say imminent I’m not saying it’s going to happen within the next 48 hours or within the next week.. it’s for the entire six month period, this red alert…
And then once we get to the end of 2015 I don’t believe that it’s all going to be over and that our problems are going to be past us.
No… I believe what we’re entering into is a major turning point…
In so many ways our problems are just going to be beginning as we move into 2016.
Are we now in the midst of the next great global crisis?
As Snyder points out, just in the two weeks since he shared his warnings we have seen Greece essentially collapse, Puerto Rico has gone bankrupt, and China’s stock markets have seen hundreds of billions of dollars in wealth wiped out. It’s so serious, in fact, that the Communist government in China has actually banned the selling of stocks! Europe is scrambling to save its currency and Union. In America the conjecture that has been economic growth is slowly being revealed to be the sham that it really is with thousands of nationwide retail store closings, over 45 million on food stamps, and a President who seems to believe the situation has been contained.
It appears that the threat of an epic financial and economic disaster is not only real, but moving full steam ahead right before our eyes.
By Joachim Hagopian Global Research, July 08, 2015
If you think the globalists are pushing pedal to the metal now, you’re absolutely right! Rapid acceleration toward their one world government has humanity on a fateful collision course to Armageddon. Just look at the unfolding events in 2015 so far with barely half the year over. The Charlie Hebdo attack in January came right after France moved to recognize a sovereign Palestinian state. Clearly Hebdo was a false flag payback that only escalated movement toward more Orwellian tyranny and draconian police state oppression, not only in France but around the world.
Hebdo’s aftermath in Paris with world leaders gathered arm-in-arm flanked by a duped million plus strong waving their false freedom flags reeked of foul stench – a hideous pretense of staged mockery defiance. The pathetic irony is the very same terrorist acts they were protesting against are regularly and deceitfully perpetrated by those very same international crime cabal leaders who diabolically profit from their state-sponsored terrorism. Afterwards their ratings in popularity only surge (in the wake of the recent South Carolina mass killing, Obama recorded his highest approval ratings of over 50% since 2013) while their corrupt power only tightens the NWO noose of absolute control around the necks of the global masses as their treasonous leaders celebrate arm-in-arm liberty’s death march.
Meanwhile also by design, the West’s created Frankenstein monster on steroids ISIS spreads its reach of lustful destruction not only throughout the Middle East but into Africa, Europe and Eurasia as well. It’s now partnering up with Boko Haram and al-Shabaab terrorist groups in Africa and beyond. Despite this fact, flanked by his generals Obama just lied [again] claiming that “ISIS is losing ground.” The Islamic State on display staging their Christian beheadings provide weekly shock and awe theater for an aghast world audience. All the while a coalition of the willing that’s always been ISIS’ life support system – the US-NATO-Israeli-Saudi-Turkish governments – secretly finance, arm, protect, train and maintain the Islamic State’s expanding supply line.
The allied air campaign consisting of 15,245 air strikes from last August to May 2015 that is supposed to have wiped out the jihadist terrorists has likely killed as many innocent civilians and soldiers fighting against ISIS as killed ISIS terrorists. If nothing else, the extensive US bombing and drone attacks only create new enemies from victims’ families. Of course Obama and the Pentagon are fully aware of this fact. But then it fits right into their true agenda. A US Navy F-18 pilot anonymously went on record reporting that, “There were times I had groups of ISIS fighters in my sights, but couldn’t get clearance to engage.” This telling admission goes far in explaining both why the secret US agenda is to actually protect ISIS as the mercenary ally it created as well as why the US air campaign has “failed.” It’s all a demonic charade failing to hide US Empire’s true agenda to keep their fake war on terror a forever war of terror against all of humanity.
Have you ever seen the Islamic State enemy actually attacking and killing any Israelis?
The savage brutality of ISIS doesn’t stop globalist front men like Netanyahu from putting on his best caring bedside manner bringing good genocidal cheer to his injured jihadist mercenaries laid up in his Golan Heights hospital. Or perennial warmonger McCain back slapping smiles hamming it up before the cameras with his ISIS buddies during a photo-op break from plotting yet more secret global war strategy. It’s all too obvious the West’s hired gun in the Middle East is soon coming to a Jade Helm neighborhood this summer near you. After all, they’ve been busy training with the Mexican drug cartel all year long just eight miles from the open US border. That our treasonous NWO government crime syndicate and their new and improved brand of terrorist bad guys are no so strange bedfellows can’t come as a surprise to anyone who doesn’t have their head up their ass.
Just when the feeble façade that al Qaeda/ISIS are America’s enemy is uncovered as just another sinister propaganda lie, enter the latest demons from hell – Russia’s Putin joined by those cyber-hacking Chinese who just stole the emperors’ private clothes (four million gov.corps workers) in another worn out cold war episode fast boiling over into a likely full scale nuclear World War III. The Ukraine debacle has been a thinly veiled attempt to create yet another stale installment of the globalists’ created cold war.
Yet decades ago the US created Osama to defeat and help take down the mighty Soviet Empire in the “empire graveyard” Afghanistan throughout the 1980’s while trafficking in Bush-Clinton-CIA run cocaine in exchange for arming Reagan’s freedom-fighting death squad commandos butchering over 200,000 Central Americans. Supplying inner city ghettos of America with their war on drugs was a war against black Americans with which they quickly filled their privatized prisons (over half of the 2.3 million in US prisons are black mostly serving sentences for drug crimes), it also conveniently killed two birds with one crystal crack pipe stone, effectively creating a dependent US welfare state and the rise of a flourishing gangland culture all at the expense of people of color. The war on terror and war on drugs have served the globalist agenda extremely well, and though critics say America has lost both those wars, in reality from the evil psychopathic perspective, the globalists have won their New World Order with total victories on both “warfronts.”

Are You Prepared For The Coming Economic Collapse And The Next Great Depression?
So what exactly is an “Economic Collapse”?
In proper context, it would be a complete breakdown of our national and regional (more than likely global) economies. It is basically a severe economic depression, where an economy is in complete distress for years or possibly even decades. The Great Depression is a decent example of an economic collapse. In 1929, the stock market crashed after amazing growth (and manipulation) and it destroyed the economy. This brought about unemployment to the tune of 24% – possibly 25%, high levels of poverty and it lasted for many years. You can always pin-point an economic collapse by a few specific factors. These events are characterized by extremely high unemployment, excessively high poverty levels, and bouts of civil unrest. The scary element of this is the fact that desperate people do desperate things.
Causes of these events range from market manipulation, hyperinflation, deflation, bubbles bursting, stagflation and basic financial-market crashes. Of course, these headings have their own extensive lists of causing factors such as out of control debt and currency devaluation. Sometimes, a simple drop in consumer confidence can get the ball rolling. Of course, we are already witnessing much of this and anyone paying even the slightest bit of attention has undoubtedly heard these terms as of late.
There are some that believe that government intervention may be necessary to bring an economy back from collapse. Some believe that government intervention is the last thing that should be done. Still, some believe that an economic upheaval is only corrected after the war that inevitably follows. After the Great Depression for example, the government created many programs building roads, buildings, bridges, etc., to get people working while also building national infrastructure. Did this fix the economy? What we know for sure is that it brought about substantially larger government in the end, which in many ways just perpetuated the cycle. Then what happened? World War II and the end of the Depression. Maybe they are all right.
As you can see, it is not hard to imagine why or how we got here or where we might be heading. It’s also not hard to imagine why people are starting to see things the way I do. After all, retail sales continue to fall, retail closures are happening in droves, layoffs are ever-present with more on the way, and home ownership continues to decline. Oddly enough, the businesses that appear to be doing alright are the ones that cater to the lower income families. In fact, let’s get a little more in depth on this.
What we all need to understand is that our economy is not just in decline, but it is already at Great Depression levels. Understand that only 86 million Americans are actually working. This includes both part-time and full time workers. The remaining 245 Million are unemployed, too young or too old to work. Meanwhile, the IRS is pulling in record levels of taxation, which means that the 86 million are actually pulling in less and less. Furthermore, well over 161 million —are now getting government subsidies. This means that well over 50 percent of U.S. households now receive benefits from the government. This is getting worse by the day.
But the government is trying to sell people on the idea that we are in some massive economic recovery. This is not true. The problem is that the government is messing with the numbers and not providing the real picture. This is necessary for them though, because they need you to believe things are getting better, so you will go out and spend what little money you have. I would not recommend this by the way – unless of course it is to buy something to better prepare you for what is about to occur.
For example: the government is trying to tell you that the unemployment rate is 5.6%; lower than it was before the economic crisis of 2008. This is highly inaccurate though. What they are showing you is something called the U-3 number, and this number excludes quite a few people who really need to be counted. Bill Clinton changed the way government tracks unemployment back in the mid-1990’s. However, if you were to track unemployment like they did back during the Great Depression, you would see that unemployment rate is actually somewhere around 23.2%. Please note how drastically close that number is to the worst part of the Great Depression which again, was 24%. Now understand that we are just getting started in regard to our problems. This number stands to get much higher very soon for a host of different reasons.

“Strange how paranoia can link up with reality now and then.” ― Philip K. Dick, A Scanner Darkly
Once upon a time, there was a nation of people who believed everything they were told by their government.
When terrorists attacked the country, and government officials claimed to have been caught by surprise, the people believed them. And when the government passed massive laws aimed at locking down the nation and opening the door to total government surveillance, the people believed it was done merely to keep them safe. The few who disagreed were labeled traitors.
When the government waged costly preemptive wars on foreign countries, insisting it was necessary to protect the nation, the citizens believed it. And when the government brought the weapons and tactics of war home to use against the populace, claiming it was just a way to recycle old equipment, the people believed that too. The few who disagreed were labeled unpatriotic.
When the government spied on its own citizens, claiming they were looking for terrorists hiding among them, the people believed it. And when the government began tracking the citizenry’s movements, monitoring their spending, snooping on their social media, and surveying their habits—supposedly in an effort to make their lives more efficient—the people believed that, too. The few who disagreed were labeled paranoid.
When the government let private companies take over the prison industry and agreed to keep the jails full, justifying it as a cost-saving measure, the people believed them. And when the government started arresting and jailing people for minor infractions, claiming the only way to keep communities safe was to be tough on crime, the people believed that too. The few who disagreed were labeled soft on crime.
When the government hired crisis actors to take part in disaster drills, never alerting the public to which “disasters” were staged, the people genuinely believed they were under attack. And when the government insisted it needed greater powers to prevent such attacks from happening again, the people believed that too. The few who disagreed were told to shut up or leave the country.
Finally, the government started carrying out covert military drills around the country, insisting they were necessary to train the troops for foreign combat, and most of the people believed them. The few who disagreed, warning that perhaps all was not what it seemed, were dismissed as conspiracy theorists and quacks.
By the time the government locked down the nation, using local police and the military to impose martial law, there was no one left in doubt of the government’s true motives—total control and domination—but there was also no one left to fight back.
Now every fable has a moral, and the moral of this story is to beware of anyone who urges you to ignore your better instincts and trust the government.
In other words, if it looks like trouble and it smells like trouble, you can bet there’s trouble afoot.
For instance, while there is certainly no shortage of foul-smelling government activities taking place right now, the one giving off the greatest stench is Jade Helm 15. This covert, multi-agency, multi-state, eight-week military training exercise is set to take place from July 15 through Sept. 15 in states across the American Southwest.
According to official government sources, “Jade Helm: Mastering the Human Domain” is a planned military exercise that will test and practice unconventional warfare including, but not limited to, guerrilla warfare, subversion, sabotage, intelligence activities, and unconventional assisted recovery. The training exercise will take place in seven different southwestern states: California, New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Texas, Utah and Nevada. U.S. Army Special Operations Command will primarily lead this interagency training program but the Navy Seals, Air Force Special Operations, Marine Special Operations Command, Marine Expeditionary Units, 82nd Airborne Division, and other interagency partners will also be involved. Approximately 1,200 troops are expected to participate in these exercises. The training is known as Realistic Military Training because it will be conducted outside of federal property. The exercises are going to be carried out on both public and private land, with the military reportedly asking permission of local authorities and landowners prior to land usage. The military map listing the locations that will host the exercise shows Texas, Utah, and the southern part of California as “hostile territory.” According to U.S. officials, these three areas are marked as hostile to simulate environments where American troops are viewed as the enemy. The other areas on the map are marked as permissive, uncertain (leaning friendly), or uncertain (leaning hostile). Military officials claim that the southwestern states were chosen because this exercise requires large areas of undeveloped land as well as access to towns and population hubs. These states purportedly also provide a climate and terrain that is similar to that of potential areas of combat for the United States, particularly Iraq, Iran and Syria. Now the mainstream media has happily regurgitated the government’s official explanation about Jade Helm. However, there is a growing concern among those who are not overly worried about being labeled conspiratorialists or paranoid that the government is using Jade Helm as a cover to institute martial law, bring about total population control, or carry out greater surveillance on the citizenry. In the first camp are those who fear that Jade Helm will usher in martial law. These individuals believe that by designating the two traditionally conservative and Republican-dominated states, Utah and Texas, as hostile territory, while more Democratic states like Colorado and California are marked as friendly, the military plans to infiltrate the states with large numbers of gun owners and attempt to disarm them.
