How The State Will Strip You Of Your Rights When SHTF

Editor’s note: This article was written by Maybell Nieves, a professional physician from Venezuela.

Dealing with this subject has been quite difficult for me. Both the concept of the state stripping you of everything and the SHTF concept have as many backgrounds as diverse interpretations, so trying to approach this from a single point of view is a complicated task.

In my country, Venezuela, after 20 years of “revolution,” we have bottomed out and learned to live in situations we never imagined (so much so that I was able to write an article on survival techniques I never imagined myself using on daily basis).

It’s not that the governments before Hugo Chavez were much better. But there was a much more stable political and economic situation with access to the international market.How the State Will Strip You off Everything When the SHTFIn 1999, when Chávez’s government was instated, oil prices were the highest in Venezuela’s history. The newly born Communist policy in the country was hardly felt and had very few repercussions on the professional citizens who lived on a monthly salary.

That’s probably why those first few years didn’t really feel like something was taken away from us. In addition, the newly elected president had a 60% popular approval rating and promised endless opportunities for the neediest people.

One of the first economic policies was the implementation of exchange control, currently in effect. Any operation with foreign currency was managed by the state. Later came the control of the prices of basic products, which caused the disappearance of those items and initiated a black market that is also very much in force to this day.The real problem began in 2004 with the accelerated decrease in oil prices that translated into a lower income for the government. Remember that we are talking about an oil-reliant country.

The decay was soon seen in many aspects. There was no longer maintenance on public roads, and public services failed often until reaching the point of constant failures of electric service, even for days.

The public health situation is also getting worse and worse. As a health professional, I have seen this deterioration for the last 10 years.

I am an oncologic breast surgeon. In Venezuela, breast cancer is the main cause of death from cancer in women. However, in the hospital where I work, the most important hospital in Caracas, there are no basic services for this issue. No chemotherapy, the radiotherapy equipment has been inoperative since 2015, and surgical procedures are suspended every week.

For me, as a doctor, it is frustrating not to be able to help my patients in any way. Just last week two breast cancer patients who were going to the operating room were suspended for the fourth time in a row. This time the anesthesia machine was failing.

The purchasing power of the Venezuelan citizen also decreased. It seemed to have happened from one day to the next, but if you look at the political situation since 1988, the decline took a long time; all that was left was to hit rock bottom.

Finding ourselves in extreme situations makes our defense system act in a primitive way. This means activating the fight or flight response at any time within any context—and yes, the state takes advantage of that.

The state will rip you off, but it doesn’t happen all of a sudden. There are a lot of logistics; it takes a long time to develop the kind of policy that makes citizens totally dependent on the state.

You start by losing something unimportant, like some kind of monetary bonus now given to you as government-run grocery store credits, and you end up losing your freedom and all kinds of rights, including freedom of speech and protest, but these issues are so extensive that they require an article of their own to explain them properly.

The state has taken charge, with great success I must say, and you are now living in fear of the so-called public authorities, meaning police and military police, since they serve as pro-government forces of repression.

Many of us have lost the incentive to go out and protest. We did it for more than 10 years. However, I have seen the evolution of the manifestations before and now.

I remember 2003 when repression was minimal, almost non-existent. Today many friends who still have the strength to continue have gotten gas masks in order to defend themselves from the hundreds of tear gas grenades used by the authorities that should be defending people.

In any public protest, savage repression is a constant. That violence is what we Venezuelans have become used to.When there is no public or social security, when the devaluation of the currency is occurring on a daily basis, and when you don’t know if the bakery on the corner is going to be broken into tomorrow, at that moment, the debacle has already occurred.

Defending oneself from these kinds of problems is as difficult as trying to explain them. Many have chosen to leave and seek a future in other countries. That way the state even strips you of your own country by causing you to become self-exiled.

I don’t blame them. We all have more than one family member or close friend who has been kidnapped or stolen from violently, and sadly, all we can say is “You should be thankful you weren’t killed”.

Personal security becomes a problem of epic proportions, to the extent that going out on the street is considered a risky activity—a risk to which, unfortunately, you have to get used to in order to live a normal life.Living in that state of continuous stress in which your rights are violated, in cities where, despite paying high taxes, everything seems to be in ruins, is part of that hopelessness that the state achieves in the individual.

Living in a place where a good monthly salary fora top executive, for example, does not reach $100 a month, is not easy, especially taking into consideration that a basic shopping list for a family of four can cost up to $140 monthly.

So the mismanagement of incompetent and corrupt civil servants results in the deep separation of three social classes: extreme poverty, which represents more than 80% of the population and is totally dependent on the government; the working middle class, which manages to subsist through one or two basic incomes plus the economic help of family members abroad; and those who do business with the government and can live in a very comfortable, ideal world that has nothing to do with reality.

Of course, there are exceptions to this, and some people have high incomes without being involved in dubious businesses.

It is sad to see how fourth-level professionals, trained in the country, must leave in order to provide for their families.

I know it is not a unique situation in the world—it has happened and will continue to happen—but it is very different to read about it than to see it sitting in the front row or even being the leading character.

Nowadays it is the common denominator, and more and more qualified professionals and technicians step into the international airport in search of a better quality of life.That’s why there is a whole generation that has no kind of roots in their country and only waits for the opportunity to leave.

I think the worst part of all this is the desolation sown in all of us. It seems to be an endless story, with the political disqualification of opposition leaders, political prisoners, and many more vexations.

Writing all this is not easy, but it makes me reflect. It is an exercise in introspection. Without a doubt, the state strips you of everything in its eagerness to stay in charge. That’s the way they do it.

There comes a point at which the only thing in your mind is to know if you will return home alive. Everything else is secondary. At that point, the state has already massacred you internally. You can never be the same again. I’m sure I am not.

Even if you are a person who is not involved in politics, an “apolitical” citizen, in this state of anarchy, you have to fix your position.

As Desmond Tutu said, “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.”

The Time America Bombed the Skies to Control the Weather

In this day and age there has been much talk and speculation on the possibility of actually controlling the weather and manipulating it to our own ends. Officially called “geoengineering,” far from the realm of science fiction there have been many serious attempts to control and shape the weather in various ways, ranging from the scientifically plausible to the certifiably insane. Our case here is of the latter variety, and focuses on the desire to create rain by basically bombing the ever loving bejeezus out of the sky, a plan that was actually funded and pushed forward by the U.S. government, and which makes for a colorful and delightfully bonkers historical oddity.

Weather manipulation is not exactly a new idea, and attempts to control the weather are older than many may think. One early scheme happened back in the 19th century United States, and was born from the long-held idea that explosions and concussive force somehow caused rain by agitating the clouds into coughing up the goods. This was actually a very old idea even then, as for centuries it had been believed by many cultures that wars brought with them rain, with generals as far back as Napoleon and beyond making note of this, and during the Civil War it was often mentioned that rain usually followed major battles. This notion, and especially the treatise on the correlation between the Civil War and rain in the 1871 book War and the Weather, by former Civil War general Edward Powers, planted an idea in the head of some in the U.S. government that this phenomenon could be harnessed and used to make rain whenever they wanted. To this end, they went about setting aside funds to actually carry it out.

It is important to note that even at the time few real scientists put much stock in the theory that wars or explosions caused rain, and it was considered a bit of crackpot theory, but the idea was stubborn among some outside of the mainstream, who believed that this concussive force really could rattle the clouds into releasing rain. After all, Powers’ book, although based on circumstantial evidence, seemed to prove it by analyzing over 200 Civil War battles in which it was “proven” that the explosions had brought rain in the aftermath, even though the author was in no way a scientist and was actually criticized by many for displaying a woefully incomplete knowledge of how weather or the atmosphere actually worked. Nevertheless, inspired by this book the government believed it could be done, and with a drought going on at the time they fast tracked the plan and began looking for someone who would help them. Most real scientists refused, calling it folly and scientifically untenable at best, and completely stupid at worst, but they found their man with a patent lawyer from Washington D.C. by the name of Robert G. Dyrenforth.

Now, Dyrenforth was not a scientist, but he was a major rainmaking enthusiast, an ardent supporter of the concussive weather modification theory, and he also had the support of none other than the author of War and the Weather, Edward Powers himself, and was even joined by some real scientists in the form of Smithsonian Institution meteorologist George E. Curtis, patent office chemist Claude O. Rosell, and John T. Ellis of Oberlin College. They were given all of the funding they would need for their strange experiments, as well as a generous amount of land in Texas to carry it all out, and so in August of 1891, Dyrenforth, Powers, and the others arrived at a rural prairie in Midland, Texas, along with their equipment, which was composed of kites, balloons, a battery trigger, and a whole lot of explosives. Their plan? To bomb the hell out of the sky until it rained.

And bomb it they did, starting their experiments on August 17, sending up kites and balloons packed with explosives that caused fierce explosions to reverberate across the sky, not always exactly where they were aiming, but good enough. They had problems with the balloons getting carried away in the wind to explode off course, so they added to the noise by packing prairie dog holes full of explosives as well, and then waited to see what would happen. Amazingly, 12 hours later there was a slight bit of rain in the area and dark storm clouds on the horizon. It must be noted that the amount of rain at the time was negligible and could not really be concretely attributed to the explosions, but for Dyrenforth it was seen as a resounding success, and encouraged him to ramp things up. On August 21 they sent up even more explosives, totaling around 156 pounds of an explosive commonly called “rackarock,” made of a mixture of potassium chlorate and nitrobenzene, which was more stable and produced a bigger punch. The idea was that they needed more boom, more spectacular explosions, and they succeeded in that at least, but Durenforth would think they had proven the theory once again when there was claimed to be slight condensation in the form of what was described as “a mist,” and dew on the grass. Dyrenforth excitedly claimed that this was further proof that their plan could work, and prepared to go to the next stage.

Not everyone on the team was as impressed with these “results” as Dyrenforth was. In particular, the meteorologist Curtis was decidedly skeptical of the whole thing, to the point that he would leave the whole affair before the final experiment was carried out. Other scientists who had looked on from the sidelines with a mixture of twisted curiosity, incredulity, and raised eyebrows were quick to point out that barely any rain had fallen, the season itself was already prone to rain and storms in the region, that any substantial rainfall had happened far from where the experiments were actually being conducted, and the experiments were carried out with such haphazard, arbitrary timing that a couple of drops of rain in no way meant that they had been successful, and it was even pointed out that the team was taking credit for rain that had already been forecast by weather agencies. Even the two reporters who had tagged along to document the experiments from the Chicago Farm Implement News and Dallas Farm and Ranch were skeptical of it all, even as other news agencies around the country spewed out sensationalist headlines that it all had worked, that it was a huge success, and that large amounts of rain were being made, adding to the hype and exaggerating it all relentlessly.

None of the criticism deterred Dyrenforth, who continued on to his final experiment on August 25. Once again he sent up his bombs and mercilessly pounded the sky for a full day this time, using both balloons and makeshift mortar rounds, under the impression that an even bigger bang would make more rain. In his opinion it did, as he would write in his report that at 3 AM something remarkable happened, saying:

I was awakened by violent thunder, which was accompanied by vivid lightning, and a heavy rainstorm was seen to the north—that is, in the direction toward which the surface wind had steadily blown during the firing, and hence the direction in which the shocks of the explosions were chiefly carried.

It sounds very impressive, but of course this was the rainy season in the area, and in reality others on site said that there was barely any actual rain at all at the time, despite Dyrenforth’s attempts to hype it all up. By this time skepticism towards the project was at an all-time high, with scientists completely and flatly denouncing it as hogwash even as the newspapers continued to churn out sensationalism about how it was all such a great success. Curtis, who had already quit the experiments, wrote a scathing, withering report on it all, not mincing words at all when he called Dyrenforth “an inexcusable bungler, his botchwork a burlesque on science and common sense,” and writing a detailed breakdown of how wrong the whole theory was, concluding:

In view of these facts, it is scarcely necessary for me to state that these experiments have not afforded any scientific standing to the theory that rainstorms can be produced by concussions.

In response to all of this criticism and blistering commentary from the scientific establishment, Curtis’ paper was never formally published and Congress unbelievably poured even more money into the experiments. However, none of these experiments instilled any more confidence that it could really work, and simultaneously the public was starting to get the impression that it really was all just a sham and money waster, their interests moving on to other things. Congress eventually had to face the reality that they were getting no results and pulled the plug on it. This marked the end of federal funding for these projects, but it was not the end of people continuing to blast the sky to bring on the rain.

In El Paso Texas, the mayor went about using city funding to support similar experiments, tasking a John T. Ellis with carrying it out, with the help of Dyrenforth, of course. The rationale this time was that the region of El Paso was so incredibly dry and cloudless that if they could make it rain there it would be irrefutable proof that the technique worked. Using six dozen artillery rounds, an absurd 1,000 pounds of dynamite, and 2,000 cubic feet of pure oxygen they exploded the absolute living daylights out of the sky, after which rain actually did fall, and although it was a considerable distance away the team took it as a success. They would go on to carry out other experiments across the southwest, but they were never able to really convince anyone that it actually worked, and indeed many of the rains they claimed to have made had already been forecast by weather services.

In later years there would be other sporadic attempts to make it rain through concussive force, but the theory largely just sort of withered away and died out as people increasingly realized that there just wasn’t anything to it. This is not to say that efforts to create rain have been abandoned all together, and in recent years a concept called “cloud seeding” has been pursued, in which silver iodide crystals or other chemicals are delivered to clouds by aircraft, rockets, or artillery to try to mimic the ice nuclei that spurs the growth of water droplets and raindrops and coax the clouds to form rain, but results have been mixed at best. One of the most famous cases of a cloud seeding project was carried out by the U.S. government during the Vietnam War in order to foil the enemy by hindering their communications and supply lines using monsoon force deluges of rain conjured up by loading clouds with flares of silver and lead iodide. Called Operation Popeye, it was a massive operation that the government poured massive amounts of money and resources into, making it a shame that it seems that it didn’t work at all.

Despite the fact that the efficacy and feasibility of cloud seeding remain unclear it has continued to be pursued, with an estimated 50,000 kilograms of silver iodide used every year for this purpose. A similar use of explosions and chemicals has been used in other areas of the world such as Russia and China to have the opposite effect and either keep rain away or stop heavy snowfalls or hail. In the U.S. there has even been invented and even patented a type of cannon device that theoretically creates concussive shockwaves in storm clouds through the use of combustible gas and explosives to prevent the formation of hailstones, which cause a great amount of damage to crops every year. Whether any of this really works or not remains to be seen.

No matter how effective any of this ever was or is, it is clear that people sure do love bombing the clouds in one form or other to try and get rain, and we will probably be doing it for some time to come. Who knows what the future will hold for weather manipulation in its many forms, and it is a point of discussion of whether we ever will be able to achieve it or indeed if we should, but it is undeniably well out of the realm of fiction, and cases like these are a fascinating glimpse into the history of our desire to play God and control the weather.

The rise of the Antichrist and modern 5G technology. All they need is the right conditions: a totalitarian world dictatorship to put it into effect


“As technology becomes more and more a part of our everyday lives,” Biltz says, “we must consider theories about the Antichrist and emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, Siri, Alexa, Watson, 5G and more, which are creeping into our lives on a daily basis and changing our perspective of how things could possibly play out even in the next few years.

“And as the technology race continues, it is no longer difficult to imagine the Antichrist as some kind of hybrid human cyborg able to project himself all over the world at one time as a hologram that demands to be worshipped,” he added. “With all the advances in technology—the ability to produce avatars, holograms and computer software installed in our bodies so our thoughts and emotions, as well as our purchases and our movements, can be monitored—there is no doubt that we are at the culmination of one age and entering the threshold of another.”

The Anti-Christ world leader will be the author of confusion, the master counterfeiter, and through his many images he will deceive the nations. The Antichrist will come on the world stage peaceably, with flatteries, via powerful persuasion and propaganda. By this means he is able to creep into houses and lead captive the masses.

Through his many images and idols he shows himself clever, for acceptance of his 666 mark of the Beast (Revelation 13:16-18) will be the fashion–the logical, the reasonable, the convenient, the safest, the securest, the vital, the norm, that which is accepted in the eyes of man, both small and great.

It’s getting darker and colder all the time, and many people in the world can feel it. They may not understand it, and they don’t always want to admit it, but it’s happening. The sun is setting, the darkness is falling, and the world is looking for hope, for some ray of light. The nations question “Why this and why that? Why all the pain and strife in the world? Why the slaughter of the innocents? Why troubles and sorrows?” These questions are being raised in people’s hearts and minds, and those whose foundations have been built on the sand, or others who had no foundations to begin with, have no answers.

Never in all of history until now has the technology existed for a world dictatorship to rule the world. All they need is the right conditions: a totalitarian world dictatorship to put it into effect. The Antichrist government will use the computer to rule the world in the form of an image to the antichrist. The image of the Beast!

REVELATION 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast (Antichrist); saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast (Antichrist), which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

REVELATION 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

REVELATION 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

REVELATION 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

REVELATION 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. 666

The technology for the Antichrist’s One World monetary system and “Mark of the Beast” is already developed and ready to be put into effect. Just think, all the peoples of the Earth united, on the same wavelength, the same channel.

All around, every single day, there are signs of the coming End, signs of the Antichrist, signs of the coming One World Order. Man’s knowledge has also increased in these last two years, as it has in other recent years, but it now heads in more dangerous directions than in the past, including attempts to clone human beings, fuse man and beast in the embryo, or genetically modify man. As men seek to unravel the secrets of life, they also seek to combine it with machine. They seek new and improved robots to serve man, giving them artificial intelligence and mobility such as they’ve not had before. They seek to make man himself more of a machine, implanting chips, sensors, and electrodes to enhance man’s powers and intelligence.

These chips and implants come with many benign purposes: They increase security for children and protect them from abduction; they monitor criminals; they check the health of their subjects and release medicine into the body; they make identification quick and easy; they prevent fraud; they monitor and increase productivity; they make life more convenient in many ways. In the last two years we’ve seen a great increase in the knowledge that has made such things possible and public acceptance of the devices themselves.

Despite the promises of technology, modern comforts and conveniences, and affluence unknown in the past, poverty persists. War threatens. Disease stalks and kills many. The world thinks they’ve entered the great new age of technology, and the 21st century is going to thrust them into the greatest glories of their “techno-age.” The technology known as biometrics, for example, the process of collecting, processing and storing details of a person’s physical characteristics, has excited the interest of governments and companies because, unlike other forms of ID (cards, papers, etc.), it knows the target human as well as a mother knows her children. The most popular forms of biometric identification are retina scans, hand geometry, thumb scans, fingerprints, voice recognition, and digitized photographs.

This is the sort of power that will be needed to run the Antichrist’s computers and government. here’s nothing intrinsically wrong with the technology and being able to do things faster and better. But these will be useful mechanisms of the Antichrist’s New World Order. Technology has broken down borders and nations are becoming less important, which will make the creation of his one-world government relatively simpler. It’s happening so gradually that global government will just be a logical next step.

The world will accept him, only to find that the heaven on earth he’s promised them has become hell on earth, with hell hereafter for those who take his 666 Mark of the Beast. They’re trying to control living beings with technology, with chips that they’ve finally managed to incorporate in their brains. And they’ll go on developing that technology until it reaches its apex in the Mark of the Beast, with which evil men would seek to control and monitor men even more.

Are you ready for these great and final events of the end? You can get ready now by receiving Jesus into your heart. Simply pray this little prayer and He will come in: “Dear Jesus, I believe that You are the Son of God and that You died for me. Please forgive me for all my sins. I ask You, Jesus, to please come into my heart and give me Your free Gift of Eternal Life.

New Technology for a Cashless Society Is Marching Right in Step With Other Moves Toward the Coming Antichrist World Government

Imagine what the apostle John must have thought when, in about 95 AD, he saw a vision of this taking place in a futuristic world. People ever since have been baffled as to how any such universal, totalitarian economic system could be established or policed.

Tied into the ability to control all buying and selling will be the complete monitoring of everything related to you. For centuries, the fulfillment of these verses in Revelation 13:16-18 was a mystery.

New technology for a cashless society is marching right in step with other moves toward the coming Antichrist world government.

The technological ability to operate a world-wide cashless economic system is now being worked on. Marching in step with this new technology is a propaganda war to eliminate cash to transform the world into a cashless society.

Let’s take a look at some of the new technology that is preparing the world for the coming 666 mark of the beast financial system.

Does Google Want To Put A Chip In Our Brains?

Google engineering director Scott Huffman says that within five years people will have microphones attached to their ceilings and microchips embedded in their brains in order to perform quicker internet searches; the goal is to insert a chip inside your head for the most effortless search engine imaginable.

According to a survey by tech giant Cisco Systems, about a fourth of professionals ages

18 to 50 would leap at the chance to get a surgical brain implant that allowed them to Instantly link their thoughts to the Internet.

A chip in the brain? Didn’t we see the potential for this new technology in book of Revelation 13:16-18?

PayPal wants to implant passwords in your stomach and your brain! Jonathan LeBlanc, PayPal’s global head of developer evangelism, claims that these devices could include brain implants, wafer-thin silicon chips that can be embedded into the skin, and ingestible devices with batteries that are powered by stomach acid.

The reasons given are that the many passwords to use Paypal are very weak so people can be robbed by professional hackers. So in the future if you want to use Paypal you will need to comply with Paypal’s new identity system whatever final technology that will be.

Another example is that, the BBC published a piece entitled “Why I Want A Microchip Implant”. We are told that such implants could solve a whole host of societal problems. Identity theft and credit card fraud would be nearly eliminated, many other forms of crime would be significantly reduced, children would never go missing and we wouldn’t have to remember a vast array of passwords and PIN numbers like we do now. We are told that if we just adopted such technology that our lives would be so much better.

They are pumping millions of dollars into researching “cutting edge” technologies that will enable implantable microchips to greatly “enhance” our health and our lives. Of course nobody is going to force you to have a microchip implanted into your brain. Initially, brain implants will be marketed as “revolutionary breakthroughs” that can cure chronic diseases and that can enable the disabled to live normal lives.

For example, Human trials for bionic eye with ‘wireless brain chip’ are to begin this year!

When the “benefits” of such technology are demonstrated to the general public, soon most people will want to become “super-abled”. Just imagine the hype that will surround these implants when people discover that you can get rid of your extra weight in a matter of days or that you can download an entire college course into your memory in just a matter of hours.

Learning a martial art, how to fly a plane or how to speak a new language without even being awake is set to become a reality, say researchers.

The possibilities for this kind of technology are endless, and it is just a matter of time before having microchips implanted into your brain is considered to be quite common.

RFID microchip implants and other forms of “wearable technology” are increasingly being viewed as “cool”, “trendy” and “cutting edge” by young people that wish to “enhance” themselves. And of course the mainstream media is all in favor of these “technological advancements”.

Employees at the Epicenter building complex in Stockholm, Sweden have a new option when it comes to entering the building. Instead of swiping the usual plastic keycard, they can wave their hand in front of a sensor. How, you may ask, does this magically open doors? There’s nothing magic about it: Office workers have radio frequency identification (RFID) chips embedded in the skin between their thumb and index finger, courtesy of BioNyfiken a Swedish bio hacking group. A reporter asked a young girl why she took the chip implant, & she replied its 2015, & this is the future!

In fact, the 10 to 20-year outlook is so radical, that it seems science fiction-like. For example, NBC & CNN forecasted that many Americans will get “chipped” by the year 2017. Right now, the majority of implanted chips people have are for restoring hearing, and in some cases treating mental disease, such as epilepsy. But bio hackers are increasingly implanting RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chips into themselves. Even X Prize Chairman and Singularity University co-founder Peter Diamandis did this on stage recently during a speech.

All of this may sound very “cool” to a lot of people.

But what happens if we are all required to have “a Microchip in our right hand or forehead” someday?

What happens if an oppressive world government uses this technology to watch, track, monitor and control all of us 24 hours a day with this new technology?

What happens if you are not able to get a job, have a bank account or buy anything without “proper identification” via a chip implant?

I think that you can see where I am going with this.

Technology is truly a double-edged sword. It can do great good, but it can also be used for great evil.

The Bible predicted such an economic buy & sell world system nearly 2000 years ago! We can see by the new technologies that are here & other technology that is being worked on, this 666 system could be online in the near future? Here’s the warning to us in Revelation 14:9-12 to not take the mark of the beast in the forehead or in the hand!

REV.14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast (Antichrist) and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

REV.14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

REV.14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

REV.14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

So watch out for 666 & the computer chip it will cost you your soul!

Some of the above may astonish you, but it’s God’s truth as revealed in the Bible. Countless Biblical prophecies have already been accurately and specifically fulfilled, so you can be sure that these predictions of the future will be as well! You can prepare for the exciting days ahead by receiving Jesus into your heart. Simply pray,

Dear Jesus, please come into my heart and forgive me for all the wrongs I have done. Help me to trust in You, to learn more about You and how to share Your love and peace with others.

All of Our Systems Are Based on Trust. When That Trust is Lost, Everything Will Come Crashing Down

As the world begins its next adventure in financial chaos and rolls over to expose its soft underbelly of lies and deceit that have been perpetrated on the public, those that see the truth have been warning the people once again. You can give people the truth but you cannot make them believe it. That is for them to come to grips with.

Trade wars are usually bad for all parties in the end but between the beginning and the end there can be some surprising developments. Human actions and delusions on the part of the public can produce strange results at times. All of our systems are based on trust. When that trust is lost, everything will come crashing down. Until then, things will go on.

If trade tariffs with China have the short term effect of creating American jobs, that could have a wealth effect by creating more disposable income in American pockets. That in turn can have a positive effect on the stock market and consumer confidence. Also, commodities are set to soar in price soon and this could carry the stock market up with it for a while.

Richard Russell once said he believed we would have a third leg in the current bull market before the bears take charge. He was right in the past and could be right again, only time will tell. This situation can not last long due to the enormous mal-investment built up in the system over many decades. A house of cards will eventually fall and the taller the house the longer and harder the fall will be.

One thing that could destroy the temporary high could be the destruction of the financial system due to loss of the reserve currency status and the replacement of the petrodollar system. If and when that happens things will not be looking good for America for a very long time. China is taking actions that could result in just that type of outcome. Their new silk road initiative and oil trading system utilizing Yuan to gold will eventually have serious consequences for Americas standard of living.

Total debts and derivatives in the world amount to 30-50 times of world GDP. The bulk of this is derivatives and when they fail they will become worthless. The 250 trillion or so in global debt will default when asset prices implode and interest rates explode. When the debt bubble explodes stocks could decline by as much as 95%. Interest rates could exceed the 20% rates we saw in the 1970’s.

In the last 100 years the value of major currencies have declined by 97-99 % relative to purchasing power in gold. The last 1-3% will follow very soon. When the financial system collapses due to losses from derivatives and stocks it will erase all of the savings, and retirement funds people were expecting to get at some future date. This will instantly impoverish the bulk of the population.

As the system collapses the banks will likely try to re-inflate assets by massive money printing which will only cause hyperinflation at some point. As hyperinflation kicks in the price of many assets like stocks, bonds, investment properties and art will likely collapse in real terms. Items like gold, silver and productive farmland will likely fare better.

Eventually deflation will carry all asset prices down as the world falls into a global depression, possibly for decades. All of these things will likely result in social unrest and wars as people become hungry and angry at a system they took for granted for so many years. The trust will be broken and people will look for something else to believe in.

One thing is for certain. People today believe anything but reality and that will catch up to them all very soon in a very painful way. Things work until they don’t. Our economy has been rolling along for decades on the stored wealth of previous generations but that is about to run out of steam very soon. When it does it will be a shock to all but a few. You can ignore reality but you cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.

The Only Thing Necessary for the Triumph of Evil is for Good Men to do Nothing

America wasn’t built by weak people and it most assuredly wouldn’t be the country that it is today if people had the mentality that many do today.

The bottom line is that we’ve become complacent and weak as a country. There’s nothing wrong with compassion as long as it isn’t at the expense of self but we’ve passed the point of being nice and now reside in the land of weakness.

The way that the country comes together in tragedy proves that American people still possess these traits; they’re just buried under deep layers of apathy and laziness.

Here are just a few lost survival traits that made this country what it is today: the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Thinking Independently

From the time of Native Americans, Americans have been independent thinkers.

The problem with today’s society is that a huge majority of the population wakes up in the morning and swallows the spoonfuls of crap-du-jour that news networks and social media are serving up. We’ve moved away from being the high-flying, far-seeing independent eagle and are now grounded sheep that ignorantly and trustingly bleat however our neighbors do.

Believe however you want, but be willing to back those beliefs up with facts and logic. Take the time to research the topics that affect your way of life. You can’t change the direction of the train if you don’t even know that it’s moving.

It’s your freedom that’s at stake – you’d think that would be worth at least as much of your time as you invest in finding a witty cartoon to post on Facebook.

Being Willing to Call “Bullshit”

Edmund Burke said “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

Our forefathers were willing to stand up and fight against tyranny and oppression in order to preserve (or gain) independence from any and all challengers. That sense of patriotism seems to be a dispassionate ghost of its former self in most people today.

Our rights are being slowly stripped and we’re swallowing the “logic” that accompanies the laws.

In some cases, the laws are directly against our constitutional rights yet we still sit back and say nothing.

Fellow Americans, where are your spines? Evil is most certainly prevailing.

The second amendment wasn’t written so that you can hunt; it was written so that you can defend yourself and your country from tyranny.

Work Ethic

We’ve become a people who believe that the world owes us a living. Now I’m not applying this statement to everybody, but it does apply to a large percentage of our population. Our ancestors died to have the right to live here.

The American dream was once attainable by just about anybody who was willing to work hard enough to achieve it and it still is.

The problem is that very few people are willing to stick it out and invest the blood, sweat and tears necessary to prevail. The “I will do it” attitude has been replaced by the “poor pitiful me should get stuff for free” attitude. We are a land full of asses waiting to be kicked.


From top politicians right on down to the bottom of the totem pole, nobody is willing to stand up and lay claim to their mistakes or take responsibility for their actions. Everything is somebody else’s fault. Remember that when you point a finger, there are 3 more pointing back at you!

It’s not always the case, but for the most part we each make the bed that we lie in. When you take responsibility for your actions, you can finally see what’s going wrong and take steps to change your path, improve your life and make yourself a better person and a better citizen. Sometimes you have to apologize and sometimes you have to make retribution, and our ancestors were willing to do that in order to preserve the rights of every citizen.

As a matter of fact, our forefathers took the time to consider their actions BEFORE they took them in order to live in a manner that didn’t encroach on others. They appreciated their rights and knew that they came with limits.

There’s an old saying that goes something along the lines of, “My right to swing my fist ends where your nose begins.” If you take a few minutes to think about that statement, it covers everything that our ancestors held near and dear, and that we now take for granted.

Basic Problem Solving

We are a country built on innovation and “making do.” Native Americans lived and thrived for centuries solely off what the land had to offer. They knew how to use what they had on hand for whatever they needed and they knew how to read the environment for signs about food, water and weather.

Immigrants and settlers learned the same skills and also applied skills learned in their native countries to “advance” their new country.

We’ve now become so technologically advanced that we’ve lost the problem solving and the survival skills that made us a strong people in the very beginning. Without our handheld devices we can’t even tell if it’s raining, let alone figure out where to find a source of water. (Googling “nearest 7-11” doesn’t count!)

That’s going to equal a world of hurt for many people when SHTF.

As a country, we’ve gotten away from both the moral and physical survival skills that built this country and made it a force to be reckoned with. For years, other countries have known that to poke us was to risk waking the sleeping giant. However, recent events and the non-action of our citizenry in the face of tyranny and adversity over the last several decades have shown us to be weak.

If we continue on our current path of dependency and apathy, it won’t be long before all of the rights that our forefathers (and foremothers!) fought so hard for are lost.

Get your pride back, America: it’s in there, so dig deep and get back on track!

What Does It Take To Make You Sit Up And Take Notice Of The Problems Surrounding Society Today?

What does it take to make you sit up and take notice of the problems surrounding society today? What will it take to make you respond to the many crises taking place today? You have eyes so you can see and ears so you can hear but for many people any negative news is a reason to tune out the world and only think good thoughts.

The problems we face continue to pile up and doing nothing is not an option if you expect to survive the next few years in tact. Prior planning and execution of a plan is now required to stay out of the flood zone when the dam breaks and everyone starts to drown. It does not matter what kind of person you are. You have to be able to save yourself before you have the ability to help others including your own family.

You cannot protect your family if you cannot protect yourself from dangerous situations or people. You cannot protect your family if you are too weak from lack of water or food to get others to safety. You cannot protect your family from the elements if you have no cover for them due to sudden loss of your shelter.

You have car insurance just in case you have an automobile accident. You have health insurance just in case you get sick. You have life insurance to help your family just in case you die. You have homeowners insurance just in case your home is destroyed. There is unemployment insurance just in case you lose your job.

So where is your food insurance just in case you cannot find any food in the store? Where is your personal protection insurance just in case you are threatened and cannot depend on the police? Where is your water insurance just in case your water supply is shut off or becomes contaminated? Where is your communication insurance just in case the power is out and normal systems do not work? Where is your energy insurance just in case energy supplies are cut off and you need to drive to safety, cook your food or stay warm?

People think that the types of insurance for cars, health, home and life are just fine to have but the other ones listed are crazy and paranoid to think about. Even in the first case, your insurance policies depend on other people to fulfill them and those people depend on a system that is still functioning such as the banks, communications and the insurance company itself. So what happens to all those other types of insurance when the insurers themselves are no longer functioning. Any crisis that takes down the stock market, power grid or the banks will also take down all of the insurance companies.

The events of the past few weeks should have been a warning shot across the bow for many. Our financial and distribution systems are in a delicate balancing act right now and any sudden shifts could send them tumbling off the cliff rendering the services they perform extinct in a matter of hours. When that happens it will be too late to think about what you should have done when you still had the opportunity.

You cannot get your money out of the bank after the doors are shut, the ATM is empty and the POS systems are no longer working. You cannot get the food you need after the stores have been cleaned out and the distribution system has stopped functioning. You cannot get fuel for your car after the gas stations are empty and deliveries have been suspended. You cannot get police help when everyone calls 911 at the same time and most of the police have gone home to protect their own families.

If your alarm bells have not gone off already what will it take for you to realize you are in serious trouble? When that finally happens what do you plan to do to protect and care for your family? Having no plan means having a plan to suffer and persist through unpleasant situations for no good reason. Not knowing something is excusable but you have been warned many times in the past few years and to have to suffer in the future because you did not know what was coming is no longer an excuse. Failure to prepare at this time will not only cost you but it will likely put an unnecessary burden on those that will have to help you in the future.

The warnings continue to go out. The situation continues to deteriorate. The mass of humanity continues to go about its normal daily business. The Earth continues to rotate with no chance of going back from here. The early warning alarms have sounded advising people to take a defensive stance just in case. Do you hear the alarms yet or have you hit the snooze button for a few more minutes of sleep?
