This guy usually knows his stuff and for the people that say he is only about "doom and gloom", maybe it's because there is only doom and gloom to look forward to. We can't ignore bad things just because they are bad.

I don't understand what it is going to take for the American people to realize just how bad of a spot that we are really in. I truly believe that even if half of America undertood what has been happening and what kind of future we are looking at because of it, there would be a revolution taking place. What really sucks, is that it has to get a whole of a lot worse before it can get better but it may not be able to get better at all if the American people don't wake up before it's too late.

You must not have been listening to him for long, else you've got a bad memory.

Don't you remember hearing about, "panic in the streets" , "tax revolts" , "revolution" ,

February 2009, He said this of next year:


"New York City looks like Mexico City. If you have money or they think you're going to have money, you're going to be a target for a kidnapping. We're going to see major cities look like Calcutta. There is going to be the homeless, panhandlers, hookers. You have people that are ignorant, functionally illiterate, and whacked out on drugs, hillbilly heroin, you name it, meth, go down the line, and they have nothing to lose. You are building the worst-case scenario. From that, we can back off, but people better realize that the worst-case scenario could actually happen. 9/11 happened. This can happen. An economic 9/11, the likes of which we've never seen."


He's said A LOT of BS.

Not a little.

A LOT.


This year ain't over yet. Timewave zero states another event is supposed to happen around June 23 of this year. Timewave zero also predicted the April 20 BP oil leak. Even the webbot gurus states there is going to be some emotional stress for this year.

these figures may not be 100 % accurate.
USA owes 13 Trillion dollars , the yearly interest alone on this debt is 1 Trillion dollars, taxes paid by the people in USA is aTrillion dollars, so NO growth. More money is printed ,so causes inflation.
Here comes the big one , XYZ income comes from Gas (petrol) now there is a shortage due to loss of oil in the gulf, the price of oil MUST go up,to compensate the loss in revenue,also BP,s profits will pay for the damage, When petrol prices rise ,everything else goes up as well,all the lorries/trucks that deliver to the stores will pass on these costs to you the customers.
Who tells you the truth of what is really happening? the politicians???
people like Ron Paul, Gerald Celente,Peter Schiff,as well as others inform you ,but if you don,t listen then you won,t believe until its too late.
Look around you, tent cities, people losing homes,losing jobs, malls closing,how many empty houses near you?,How many people unemployed? there are 40 million on food stamps, schools closing,services reduced, medical services deteriating. Many states are close to bankrupcy. The middle classes are the next to be squeezed, just watch and see.

The oil being spilled into the gulf is not creating a shortage of oil in the market. The fact is, the refining capacity or that ability to refine the oil pumped from around the world, causes a shortage of oil in the market. It's one way they control costs. Nock an oil well of line and the market doesn't really feel it but if you knock a refinery off line, then the market really feels it.

People like Ron Paul, Gerald Celente, Peter Schiff, & Michael Ruppert are the equivalent of economic canaries in a coal mine.

We are all the miners, mining away with our daily lives, we ignore their warning's at are own peril.

The collapse IS coming, the WHEN part is a challenge to answer.
How long can an economic zombie be revived?
The death stroke for this beast is coming, but how and when?

The 'How' is easy as has to to with how much debt will people take on before they are out of credit or simple won't borrow any more due to fear.

The when is not so easy be will be when they have converted as much paper as possile into hard assets by calling all the debt in, banging up interest rates and just before the whole place goes up in flames.

At this stage they will offer 50c on the $ to convert your money to the all new, 100% digital amero.

Let them keep your money, your debt and goodbye taxes, police state and we the people will sezie the assets of the world leaders and zionist bankers and land will once more be free again so that just leaves having to deal with food which won't be easy and everyone will have to get their hands dirty but we are all going have to take our medicine to remove the cancer that is destroying us all.

Easy star, easy flag for ya.

The kind of news I love to wake up to. I will be so pleased to see this rigid absolutly intolerable system come crashing down around those who put it together. Every man should have to work to provide for himself. When you have a system that uses a marker for expeditioned labor/energy.

Then that is a system of slavery. The American people are just one big experiment, brought about by the bankers of England. It was actually designed to see if there could be a utopian society. A society where the
poor could become rich while the rich got even richer.

It was a success until 1913 when the world class banking family's grew bored with their experiment. All you need to do is look at the past and
you can see their giant hand coming down out of the clouds to "switch
that, now turn that around." The system is only failing because they want it to.
I am happy to see it go, but it dosn't mean anything good is on the horizon.
You absolutly have to, be able to look elsewhere for that.
Atheism, Agnostcism, Evolution. are only paper flowers placed on floats as part of a parade. They really are the worst of this whole charade.
One paper flower for each and every person who has been fooled.
Believe me the Elites know God exists. They know they are his enemy.
They see him as evil. Why would someone see Christ as evil?
Very simple.
IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD. THEIR WEALTH WILL NOT EXIST.

It really isn't complicated at all.

I think the answer to the question "Why are they pumping more and more money into it since it doesnt work?" is pretty easy to answer.

They are stalling!

They know there are only a couple of years left now. 2012 is coming up. Same reason the USA is letting their debt rise and rise. It wont matter soon anyway.

I like how everyone in threads like these always goes on about how things are going change, how evil the world is and how necisary revolution is, yet most if not all probably live in the system they hate and would never do anything. I think knowing and hating what the system really is means you have to do something, otherwise you are worse than a sheeple.


Anyway, in regards to the video, I put no stock on specific date predictions, stuff like this comes out every time change seems to be happening, we all thought the world would change with the OPEC crisis last century. Once it happens i'll believe it, even if it is not like theres much to be done to prepare.

I don,t disagree with you, but oil (fuel) is the ONE basic control of nearly all things (prices) .
the price of fuel could be reduced, but why should oil companies be fair to the consumer? competition we are told is good for the customer. Competition is used by businesses to destroy their competitors, then prices revert to before,thats why cartels are favoured. the oil spill is a great excuse to put fuel prices up worldwide .especially now with EU,UK USA and other countries in debt, it shifts the blame.

Well, all he's got to do is say the system is collapsing and enough people will believe him so that the system does collapse. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy, and he knows it.

the ticking-bomb keeps on ticking away...


the PTB ( Øbama regime, FED RESERVE, too-big-to-Fail, Wall Street, and also the global cadre of central bank(ers) along with the BIS )

are in the process of stripping all meaningful reform completely out of the current bills being fashioned as 'reform'

to wit:



Rating Agency "Reform" Cut to "Study"
By Ian Mathias
Baltimore, Maryland

When it comes to the post-crisis world of American finance, there's one thing we can all agree on:

Something's got to give when it comes to ratings agencies.

Over the past decade, we've all witnessed the "big three's" role in the credit crisis. S&P, Moody's and Fitch gave their famous AAA ratings to an array of troubled securities, companies and nations. Not only did they issue the wrong ratings - and correct those ratings far too late - but their dubious business model was put under the spotlight, too... ripe with conflict of interest and suspicious relationships with their Wall Street clients.

Thus, rating agency reform would appear to be a legislative home run...a slow moving softball pitched right into the sweetspot of financial reform.

Well, Congress just effectively whiffed.

Earlier this week, the House and Senate removed the one amendment in the coming financial reform bill that addressed the ratings agencies. In its place - really, you can't make this stuff up - Congress will commission a two-year SEC study. The SEC, apparently not busy enough, will spend the next couple years poking and prodding the agencies and ultimately deliver Congress a report, which will announce whether a conflict of interest really does exist, and the Commission's advice as to how to fix it. [..]




its a sealed deal... the guilty rating agencies are to be given a fresh set of clothes & allowed to do exactly as they had done for most of the 1990s-2010. The system the PTB have morphed into a frankenstine will back & support the Goldman Sachs & hoard of manipulators... we are being priveledged enough to back these masters-of-the-universe with out toils/taxes, & transfer of whatever wealth we have left to the 'elites' who control our means to sustinence, resources, etc.


its a slow speed collapse, just like the GOM air quality that get progressively worse & we the masses are given the role of the FROG in the stove-top pot of water.

you all keep ducking under that garrott line strung across life's highway,

Here's the deal. It is next year and the year isn't halfway over. Even if he's off a year on the timeline, you're a lib whinning about semantics. Short of dramatic intervention by the rediscovery of the constitution and free markets, this ship is sinking, but relative to the weaker sisters in europe and asia, we will become the best option for investment and rebound once all this marxism and socialism is tossed by the will of the people (maybe by force of the people). He's spot on. What am I? An investment advisor. Where's my money? Gold. Cash. Guns. I can promise you, socialism doesn't work. Remember the old USSR? If you want to wait in line to buy toilet paper and eggs, just keep electing socialists. Remember that every dollar collected as a tax is taken out of the market, thereby reducing purchasing power and business income. Decreased economic activity shrinks the tax/revenue base, forcing the tax addicted government to increase and expand taxation and borrowing (the issuance of bonds and t-bills purchased by foreign entity's, requiring future repayment at advancing interest rates). At some point, and we are very near that point, the debt exceeds any reasonable ability to repay and the system becomes insolvent. The first tipping point is the collapse of business under the weight of taxation. We are basically there now. Avoid government issued securities at all cost, as this debt will be restructured. Invest in variable annuities with guarantees from very strong companies, gold, weapons, and for god's sake stock up on essential supplies. Water, canned goods, dog food, dry goods, extra soap and household needs. A years worth. Wait it out, and when the rebound comes, you'll be in a strong position. When you hear someone tell you big expensive government is a good thing, please correct them.

How? He was right about his prediction. There already is homeless, panhandlers, hookers, drugs, and etc. Mexican drug cartels are making this happen.

There IS a lot of kidnapping. It might not be in the US just yet, but wait until gangs evolve and people start dropping out of their jobs to join them.

So I really don't understand what is so BS about his prediction, can you enlighten us?

What if I was to tell you the banks, federal reserve, corporations, and government simply do not want the current financial system to survive. You don't actually beLIEve they are trying to save it do you?

You will get the picture soon enough...
But maybe you won't..

Most of you are still beLIEving (they) are trying to keep this thing up and running. I think the main reason you won't or cannot wake up is because you still do not believe that there are secret orders, societies and conspiracies taking place on the most absurd levels in every facet of our lives.

Try reading a book when you have time today, except try reading the book with it pressed to the tip of your nose.

It collapses when they start turning on eachother....

First they will try and make other people look bad to draw attention from the really bad things.

Second, they will start turning on each other to save themselves..

So within TPTB.....there are the lower ( we just made it ) types and the ones in control.

The ones who think they are " in the know" but are actually just more expensive pawns, will be dealt with in the next 2 years...before the elect/elite start turning on themselves....

I believe even jesus said during the end times that " those false prophets will deceive even the elect " ( that was paraphrasing ) ......

So families that were bonded for 100's of years will turn against eachother.

they are ALL selfish...well not all but about 99% so they will keep taking care of themselves.

We start to win when some of TPTB get tired of being used and realize they are not on the "inside " anymore and so they will try to help us out with their inside information.


This is just a theory of mine, but it seems to make sense to me at least and is not too far fetched.

And no i'm not really religious I just brought the jesus thing up for historical reference.
