Peter Schiff: The Fed Is ‘Unable To Delay’ a Recession Any Longer

20 days ago

According to Peter Schiff, the chief global strategist at Euro Pacific Capital, it was a “huge mistake” for the Federal Reserve to cut interest rates last month.  Schiff says there is no way for the Federal Reserve to stops the United States from going into a recession.
“They never should have taken rates to zero in 2008 and held them there for 7 years,”the veteran economic analyst told RT. “Zero interest rates and quantitative easing have created problems in our economy that will take generations to fix. However, the healing will never get underway if the Fed goes right back to zero (which is where they are headed).”
According to Schiff, it’s impossible to build a viable economy on the back of artificially low interest

Peter Schiff: A Great Recession Will Hit Jeopardizing Trump’s Reelection Efforts

24 days ago

Economic analyst and gold bug Peter Schiff is warning that another “Great Recession” will grip the United States and that when it does, it is going to jeopardize President Donald Trump’s reelection efforts.
According to a report by Fox Business, Schiff, the CEO of Euro Pacific Capital says that the United States economy is heading into a free fall that will be worse than the Great Recession of 2008. The economic forecaster is predicting the Federal Reserve (the central bank) will cut interest rates to zero and launch quantitative easing, a monetary policy where the central bank purchases Treasuries from financial institutions to stimulate the economy. “The dollar is going to go through the floor and it’s going to take the bond

70% Of Americans Are Angry at the Political Establishment

27 days ago

Are people finally beginning to wake up to the reality we are living in?  According to a new poll, 70% of Americans are now angry at the entrenched political establishment that is exerting control over every aspect of their lives.
According to a newly released poll, an overwhelming number of Americans are pissed off at the political establishment that has been enslaving them for over a century. Seventy percent of Americans said they feel mad “because our political system seems to only be working for the insiders with money and power, like those on Wall Street or in Washington.” But that’s exactly what happens when control is handed over to a few.  A consolidation of money and power at the top occurs and those who vote are the

Koch and Soros Unite To Censor the Internet

August 24, 2019

Establishment left-wing and establishment conservative billionaires are teaming up to censor the Internet.  It looks like elitists on both sides of the political aisle are trying to make sure you only get the information they want you to have.
Organizations established by left-winger George Soros and neo-conservative Charles Koch have been working together on a key priority of globalist neoliberals and neoconservatives: censorship of the Internet, according to Breitbart News. Censorship is necessary for tyranny so it makes sense that those who need the government to enslave humanity would be working together to achieve the means to an end.
Last year, the Charles Koch Institute pledged its support for the “After Charlottesville

What To Do Now To Prep For A Winter Power Outageage

August 21, 2019

Preparing in advance for the upcoming winter is important for those who live in areas where blizzards and the subsequent power outages occur frequently. It is vital to have some stored food and water just in case you’re left without power and there is no way to get out and about, but make sure you take a few other things into consideration as well.
Some of the best foods to store for this are those that pack a nutritional punch.  The foods should be filling and you should think about having enough for at least one week for each member of the family (shoot for two weeks of food if you live in an area that is regularly snowed in and the temperatures reach sub-zero).  This is a short term plan that will ensure you’ve got enough

Hospital Superbug Now Thrives on a Typical Western Sugar-Rich Diet

August 17, 2019

A superbug, first discovered in a hospital, is evolving to thrive on the sugar-rich diets common in the United States. Clostridioides difficile (C. difficile) is a bacterium that can cause a nasty spell of diarrhea and colitis for those unlucky enough to be infected by the superbug.
According to IFLScience, researchers analyzing the genomes of various strains in Nature Genetics have discovered it is a millennia-long process of evolution that will see it separate into two different species. One of those species is particularly adept at evading hospital disinfectants and thrives on a sugar-rich Western diet.
“This largest ever collection and analysis of C. difficile whole genomes, from 33 countries worldwide, gives us a whole new

The Pentagon Is Testing Mass Surveillance Balloons

August 6, 2019

The Pentagon has begun testing new and powerful mass surveillance balloons over six Midwest states. This is a major privacy threat, as these camera-outfitted mass-surveillance balloons can capture every moving vehicle across a wide area, from the stratosphere.
According to Quartz, such experimental devices are already being tested above six Midwest states as part of a Pentagon program, the Guardian reported, citing information found in Federal Communications Commission documents. The government is about to know even more about what you’re doing and for exactly how long you are doing it for, as they track all vehicle movement.
The project involves as many as 25 of the solar-powered balloons being launched from rural South Dakota,

OVERTAXED: The Middle Class Is Being Wiped Out

July 31, 2019

New Jersey residents are fleeing their state in droves thanks to the over taxation and immense financial burden placed on them by their socialist state government. In addition to the already sky-high federal tax that we are all forced to pay, those in New Jersey are struggling to make enough money to live after the state also steals a cut of their income.
The SALT (state and local tax) cap has hit high-tax states like New York, California, and New Jersey particularly hard because these states steal a higher portion of an individual’s income. As a result, affected residents have begun to move to other states – a trend that experts expect to accelerate, according to Fox Business.
“They can’t tax us anymore, the middle class is

Civil Disobedience/Noncompliance Are Damaging

July 15, 2019

If you want to know how to beat gun control, look no further than New Zealand.  Noncompliance with the new mandatory gun buyback law is kneecapping the government’s ability to enforce the law they wrote.
As of last week, only 700 weapons have been turned over to New Zealand’s government under new gun control laws written in haste in the wake of a mass shooting at Christchurch mosques. There are an estimated 1.5 million guns—with an unknown number subject to the new prohibition on semiautomatic firearms—in the country overall.
SHTFPlan mentioned the fact that Kiwis were disobeying the law, and things have still now changed.  Gun owners in New Zealand have all but officially nullified the law by ignoring it.
And once again, it

Mass Surveillance: The Pentagon Can Now ID You

June 29, 2019

As if we aren’t being tracked, recorded, and monitored enough, the Pentagon now has a laser that can identify a person by their heartbeat. Your heartbeat is going to be a lot harder to hide than your face…
So when is enough surveillance enough? Apparently, there’s no line the government can cross that will rile up the masses. We’ve got facial recognition in airports and schools, cars that can be unlocked just by looking at them, technology that can detect a person’s unique way of walking, and of course the ubiquitous fingerprint, used for everything from smartphones to event ticketing. Next on the agenda…Your heartbeat, according to an article written by Engadget.
As MIT Technology Review reports, the Pentagon has developed a

The Number One Reason

June 12, 2019

Adults are more and more favoring the decriminalization of cannabis.  And they don’t want the plant’s use legalized because they want to get high, rather most simply want a more natural way to combat pain or depression.
A recent Nielsen survey delved into why Americans are interested in trying legal cannabis, and the results were astounding.  Americans DON’T want to get high or experience the effects of the psychoactive THC compound found in cannabis. This could also be why CBD (cannabidiol) oil has been rapidly rising in popularity as well since there is not enough THC in CBD oil to have a mind-altering effect.
In fact, those who said they’d consume the plant if it were legalized were most likely to cite pain treatment and other

Geologist: A Yellowstone Eruption ‘Would Destroy Most of the US’

May 23, 2019

A geologist has said that if the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts, it would destroy most of the United States, all but wiping the country off of the map. Dr. Jerzy Zaba is importantly not predicting that the volcano is going to erupt soon, but simply stating that it does have the power to destroy humanity and life as we know it.
According to Tech WP, Dr. Zaba says that Yellowstone, if it erupted in a similar manner as it did 640,000 years ago, it would destroy much of the United States. Dr. Zaba, who is a geologist at the University of Silesia in Katowice, Poland, said the mass explosion is completely unavoidable although it’s impossible to say when that explosion will occur. In addition to the annihilation of the United States,

Sunblock Chemicals Are Being Absorbed Into the Bloodstream

May 11, 2019

According to a new study conducted by the Food and Drug Administration, the chemicals in sunblock don’t just sit on the surface of your skin.  Instead, they seep into the bloodstream causing unknown side effects and possible hormone disruptions.
If you listen to dermatologists, the science is clear: you should wear sunblock to prevent cancer-causing sunburns which can result in deadly melanoma. However, a new study conducted by the government agency, the FDA is saying those chemicals that protect the skin from cancer, are entering the bloodstream.
Experts still suggest that the benefits of sunscreen outweigh the risks, so people should keep on slathering it on, according to a report by MSN. To be fair, the FDA’s study only

CA Logic: Raise Gas Taxes

May 6, 2019

California is home to some of the most power-hungry politicians on Earth. These people actually hiked the gasoline tax, and are now demanding an investigation into why gas prices are higher in California than elsewhere in the United States.  It would be sad if it wasn’t so insane.
California Governor Gavin Newson is demanding an investigation into why the state’s gas prices are so high. But as Reason points out, it’s not all that difficult to see what that California politicians are the culprit.  In fact, the reason the gas prices are high is that Newsom (and other politicians) raised taxes on gasoline.
As lieutenant governor, Gavin Newsom supported a 2017 bill increasing the state’s gas taxes. When running for governor in

The World Is Sadder

April 30, 2019

In this day and age when most people have everything they could possibly need and then some, the world is sadder and angrier than ever before. The standard of living around the globe has never been higher, but neither has the discontentment.
According to a major analysis of global well-being, the world really is getting more miserable. Human beings worldwide are sadder, angrier and more fearful than they have ever been before.  Something just isn’t right on Earth. In Gallup’s annual Global State of Emotions report, all three emotions (sadness, anger, and fear) rose to record levels in 2018, for the second consecutive year.
Chad took the undesirable honor of being the world’s most negative country. Wrought with war, political

Solar Storm Alert

April 20, 2019

There is an upcoming solar storm expected this weekend. Researchers have noticed a sunspot that will bombard the Earth with solar particles on Monday.
Sunspots are patches of darkness on the Sun which are caused by an underlying magnetism beneath the surface. A solar storm occurs when that magnetism bubbles up and is released in the form of solar flares, which spew cosmic particles into space. Earth is in the path of these particles, so we can expect an exceptional aural display at the poles soon!
Auroras are caused when solar particles hit the atmosphere. These include the northern lights, or aurora borealis and southern lights, or aurora australis.  Both are expected to put on incredible shows thanks to this solar storm. The

NJ Governor Signs ‘Rain Tax’ Bill

March 23, 2019

In what is one of the most corrupt and vile things to have ever happened to the American political system, residents of New Jersey will now be taxed when something 100% out of their control happens. New Jersey’s governor Phil Murphy signed 19 bills into law on Monday, one of which, was the so-called “rain tax.”
Unfortunately, there were supporters of this tyrannical and wholly dictatorial law. Dubbed S-1073, supporters call it “flood defense,” and say it will serve as a long-needed tool to manage flooding and dirty runoff from rainwater.  So there are actually human beings on earth who want others and themselves stolen from because it rains.  There is nothing more disturbing that the current political path the United States is

Asia’s Most Radical Left-Wing Economic System

February 21, 2019

South Korea has untaken one of the most radical left-wing economic systems out there: a steep increase in minimum wage nationwide.  But now, the country must face the dire consequences of that decision and the harsh reality that the regulations are destroying their economy.
South Korea is home to one of the world’s boldest left-wing economic programs. President Moon Jae-in’s flagship economic policy, “income-led growth,” has led to dramatic increases in minimum wages since he took office in 2017. Those increases are now driving a terrifying rise in unemployment, just as a slump in global trade is already buffeting Korea.  The nation is now staring an economic crisis in the face.
According to the Wall Stree Journal, it isn’t just

Crime News Favors Armed Citizens

February 5, 2019

As the government seeks to regulate guns further and make it increasingly more expensive and cumbersome to legally own a gun, armed citizens spent the first month of 2019 proving weapons of any kind are basic human rights. Any regulation of a citizen’s defense weapon should be seen as a human rights violation: and their rights are being destroyed by their own government.
But many enjoy taking basic human rights away from others and won’t stop until we are all wholly enslaved to the political elites. Whether these people are useful idiots or misguided illogical immoral fools is really the only debate left. According to The Daily Signal, gun ownership surveys routinely find that about 1 in 3 American adults personally own firearms,

DOJ Study: Gun Control Laws Won’t Work

January 25, 2019

It took the United States government’s Department of Justice an entire study dedicated to gun use and criminals to figure out what logical human beings have already understood for decades. The result of their own study found that gun control laws will never work because criminals will never use legal channels to obtain guns.
According to Fox 5, the findings based on the 2016 Survey of Prison Inmates (SPI), discovered that about 1 in 5 or 21% of all state and federal prisoners reported they had “possessed or carried a firearm when they committed the offense for which they were serving time in prison.” The survey released by the DOJ this month declared that criminals unsurprisingly rely on the black market for their guns.

Commie NYC Mayor Announces Plans

January 18, 2019

The communist mayor of New York City has announced plans to literally steal the property of landlords he doesn’t like in the big apple. The city government would be allowed to steal the buildings of landlords who force tenants out. De Blasio’s opponents say this plan amounts to “straight communism,” and that’s a fact. 
Bill De Blasio in his State of the City address on Thursday, announced he wants to take action against landlords who try to force tenants out by making the property unliveable, according to a report by Fox News. He then pulled out an executive order to create a Mayor’s Office to Protect Tenants. He said that in the event the government intervenes, the buildings would then be controlled by a “community nonprofit.”

Student Debt Crisis Worsens

January 16, 2019

The Florida Board of Health has suspended thousands of healthcare licenses over defaults on student loans many used to earn their licenses. But many are concerned that the new crackdown may only worsen the student loan crisis.
The revocation of licenses came after the student loan industry lobbied the government to enact punishments for those who can’t or won’t repay the money they borrowed. According to ABC Action News, only Florida is enforcing this law as of right now. The state also has the power to garnish up to 100% of a worker’s wages until the loan is repaid and the license is reinstated. Under Florida law, once the state suspends a license for student loan default, the only way to get it back is to pay a fine equal to 10

Sanctions Lose Power

January 10, 2019

The United States is experiencing the problem of their sanctions no longer working as nations increasingly disobey what is declared by those in government.  Despite sanctions, the Russian economy continues to grow at a steady pace and expand.
Inflation in Russia remained low while the expansion of the economy occurred last year according to a World Bank report. “Although economic sanctions tightened, Russia experienced relatively low and stable inflation and increased oil production. As a result of robust domestic activity, the Russian economy expanded at a 1.6 percent pace in the year just ended,” said the report.
The U.S. has long used sanctions to harm the economies of other countries for a variety of reasons, however, those

The $1.2 Trillion College Debt Crisis

January 8, 2019

A whopping two-thirds of American college students graduate school already deeply in debt. But the decision to go into debt to pay for a college degree is a $1.2 trillion crisis that’s crippling the economy.
According to The Institute for College Access and Success (TICAS) Project on Student Debt, the average borrower will graduate with $26,600 in student loan debt. That means, that before a dollar is made using the degree, most Americans will owe money to someone else. The trend is not doing the economy any favors either. One in 10 graduates will accumulate more than $40,000 in debt and 1% of graduates will accumulate over $100,000 in student loan debt.
According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, student loan debt has

How To Prepare for an Economic Downturn

January 4, 2019

Paying off as much of your debt as you can is the one biggest piece of advice we can give to our fellow preppers.  The economy could implode any day.  So we’ve put together this easy to follow guide to help you go debt free in 2019.
“Most times people take on debt because of normal things, job loss, kid in hockey, a reno gone wrong,” investment manager Shannon Lee Simmons told CTV’s Your Morning. “It’s not because of Gucci purses.” Paying off the balance is a suggested way to prepare for any potential economic downturn too.  You won’t be hassled by debt collectors or have your car repossessed because you missed payments.
Global public (government) debts and private debts are at all time (and terrifying) highs. This historic debt

Incoming Communists Ready a Bill

December 19, 2018

In the land of the fee and home of the slave, incoming Democrats have already drafted a bill that will criminalize private gun sales.  As a “free” American, you will no longer be able to sell your own property without the government’s permission, unless you want to be labeled as a criminal if this bill succeeds and becomes a law.
While this won’t prevent mass shootings, as a government study conducted by anti-gun lunatics in politically elite positions already discovered, a very vast majority of gun owners regulate themselves.
Gun-hating democrats who demanded a study into the sale of guns online were smacked with a dose of reality. They wasted two years attempting to buy guns illegally on the “dark web,” and the group

Paris Tax Revolts

December 5, 2018

The world appears to be slowly awakening to the disaster that governments have caused and funded by theft over the course of human history. The French revolts, which began over an increase in the petrol tax, left 133 people injured and over 400 arrested after the people rose up finally realizing that all taxation is theft.
As governments across the globe increasingly enslave the tax cattle, more and more are waking up to the violence and horrific atrocities committed in the name of government with funds stolen from innocent people. Paris was only the latest example of people beginning to realize they are enslaved to the political elites and are finally demanding their freedom and refusing to be stolen from any longer.

Residents Evacuate as Guatemala’s Fuego Volcano Erupts

November 23, 2018

Approximately 4,000 residents living near the Fuego volcano in Guatemala have been evacuated as the firey mountain began spewing hot ash and red-hot lava. The “Vulcán de Fuego” or “Volcano of Fire” has erupted five times already this year.
The Fuego volcano is one of the most active in Central America. An eruption back in June of this year killed 194 people when pyroclastic clouds rolled down its slopes. Fuego began violently erupting overnight, the country’s disaster agency Conred said, according to Reuters. June’s eruption was incredibly deadly and the nation’s president Jimmy Morales issued a three day national mourning period for those who lost their lives in the deadly blast.

Superbugs Pose a Very Real Threat

November 12, 2018

Superbugs, those pesky bacteria that have evolved to become resistant to antibiotics, are on the rise and pose a very real threat to humanity. Antimicrobial resistance is a large and growing problem, with the potential for enormous health and economic consequences for the United States and the rest of the world.
According to CNBC, the media outlet which reported on a new OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) report, released Wednesday, superbug infections could cost the lives of about 2.4 million people in North America, Europe, and Australia over the next 30 years unless more is done to stem antibiotic resistance, which is already high across the globe.
Resistance is also projected to grow even more

WW3: Russia Vows It ‘Will Act’

November 2, 2018

Russia has vowed that they “will act” should Ukraine or Georgia join NATO. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu voiced his concern over what he described as the “militarization of the European continent,” by promising action instead of empty rhetoric.
This statement by Shoigu appears to be a sign of the country’s unease in the wake of President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out the United States out of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF). Speaking during a meeting with Greek Defense Minister Panos Kammenos, Shoigu said: “We are following with alarm NATO’s policy aimed at the active militarization of the European continent. We see efforts being made to involve more and more NATO member countries, I mean the Balkans
