HX3...Thank-you so much for this thread, and all the links you have posted... There's a bad odor in the air, and nothing good is going to come from it I fear..
I started stocking up on goods about 3 months ago, for the "Just in case"..looks like the just in case, is getting closer..
What do you see happening with the ecomomy, as it pertains in our day to day lives, within the next month or so...?
Here in rural NW Ohio, jobs are few and far between..any advice is welcome, and thank-you again, for all your efforts..

As stated, I know not which way the Ill wind blows these days...

...But, I do not think this will turn out well for any of us...

Short term...keep an eye on 7th page headlines...they won't put it out for all to see...believe me...I have to scour endlessly to find some of this stuff...

I live just north of you in 2nd tier Lower/Lower Mi, so, I know our local situation...not very nice...over 12% Unemployed here...


I hope this will get better...

...and that's all I got to say about that...

Thanks so much for the reply. You've sure done alot of work on this thread,I think your on to something with this. I really would like an answer to Kanjoskis drawdown though. I really feel this is the biggest key.
I agree, it could be Isreal or China. Then out of nowhere an odd thought crossed my mind... Think if Bin Laden where a double agent,currently loyal to the cia. It'd be easy for him to recruit radicals,wouldnt it? Promise them virgins maybe? I dunno,I just speculated a minute and it seemed much more plausable this way.
It could be Isreal miffed about a no fly zone over Iraq,a threat to electing Obama? Maybe..Notice Obama reaching out to Iran? Very odd considering. They say politics is a full contact sport,I tend to believe them.Heavy hitters are at work here.
The economic sunami is an intricate twist thats classic banker acts, I mean really, it fits Jeffersons warnings does it not?

Perfect!!
I am trying to look at banks here in my state, as well as in my sister's state. She lives where there have been many failures, "hint, hint"
so I told her I would investigate the best I could.

you are the best!

Both yer theorys are valid...

Bin laden was in with the Bush family and worked both side of the fence...

I'm sure he could compile a nice bunch of radical techies and do a monetary raid...upsetting the money markets where they lock them down to avoid more losses...

Thing is...if you drawdown $550B...it has to go somewhere...I think they know where it went...

That Mar 17th 08 Closed door congressional meeting is another missing puzzle piece...

...and as for Israel...I believe we told their diplomat to walk recently...and they're getting itchy about the possibily of us actually talking to Iran/Syria/Palestine...but not really sure of a connection there...

I'm leaning toward the shadow bankers/china calling in their loans...

We were supposed to pay them $6.5T for our debt...someone Lo-Jak'd us and stole it...now we gotta say nothing...we got took...or tough luck...

Someone didn't like it and went after it...

..and as far as the Banker/Jefferson forecasts...



The Bankers' Manifesto of 1892
circleof13.blogspot.com...

The courts must be called to our aid, debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible.

*As foreclosures mount, Florida court turns to 'rocket docket'*
www.cnn.com...

When, through the process of law, the common people have lost their homes,
they will be more tractable and easily governed through the influence of the strong arm
of the government applied to a central power of imperial wealth under the control of the leading financiers.

People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders. History repeats itself in regular cycles. This truth is well known among our principal men who are engaged in forming an imperialism of the world. While they are doing this, the people must be kept in a state of political antagonism.

The question of tariff reform must be urged through the organization known as the Democratic Party, and the question of protection with the reciprocity must be forced to view through the Republican Party.

By thus dividing voters, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us, except as teachers to the common herd. Thus, by discrete actions, we can secure all that has been so generously planned and successfully accomplished.


Sound familar to recent events???

Just a few of my stray thoughts on the subject...

I got off on a tangent there but it was a thought.Plausable deniability,perpetual war,GLOBAL war on terror. Economic warfare is just as deadly,if not more so. I thought also maybe Sausi Arabia could have moved so swiftly,it was certainly someone with massive assets,few really fit this bill.

China doesnt ring well with me yet nor Russia,we're so intricately financially intertwined now that we'd effectively cut each others throat.

The global economy will shrink up to 2 percent, and rapidly approved stimulus plans worldwide could spark another crash in financial markets, World Bank President Bob Zoellick projected at a forum in Belgium Saturday.

Zoellick said the World Bank, an international institution that offers aid to developing nations, projects a global economic decline between 1 percent and 2 percent, in contrast with an earlier 1 percent decline projected by the International Monetary Fund, a Washington-based organization formed to stabilize international exchange rates, among other duties.

The world has not seen a 2 percent drop since World War II or the Great Depression, according to the World Bank.

Two of the world’s largest economies, the United States and China, are struggling with recession and have recently implemented stimulus packages worth hundreds of billions of dollars. However, Zoellick likened such stimulus plans to a “sugar high,” saying they would likely lead to another crash.

cnnwire.blogs.cnn.com...

This is interesting, it suggests that our stimuli could cause another crash.

Sugar High!!!

Hey! Here I am again, just to visit you and to get all of the headlines...I'm trying to put a few together for the benefit of trying to convince my "hunk of burnin' love" (of 20 years), for sure, that we need to take what little extra cash we have and get to stockin' up asap!

He will listen partly, for now, but I am really anxious, and getting edgy that he won't go along with my plan completely.

Sorry you don't get the "traffic" you deserve over here; nothing personal I'm sure. But you do soo much work I'm amazed that you don't!

The world’s largest oil field services company, which in January announced plans to cut 6 percent of its work force, now expects “a further reduction of a similar amount” in coming months, Chief Executive Andrew Gould said at the 2009 Howard Weil Energy Conference in New Orleans. While the first round of cuts — eliminating about 5,000 of the firm’s 84,000 global employees — should be largely completed by the end of March, Gould gave no specific timetable for the next phase of layoffs. A company spokesman did not yet know how the company’s Houston operations would be affected.
