The Global Financial Crisis & Deep Impact

I was digging through some DVDs last night and found "Deep Impact" tucked away. You know, the one about the massive asteroid and such like ? Came out about the same time as Armageddon.

Anyway, thought I'd give it a spin because I really love Morgan Freeman.

There's a scene near the beginning, in the vaults under some government building. The reporter gets hustled in with a secret service escort, she knows too much (she actually doesn't know anything but I won't spoil it too much). Around her lie pallets upon pallets of emergency rations. And in a neat little twist, in walks Mr Freeman in his capacity as Leader of the Free World. He proceeds to tell our startled reporter that they didn't think they could keep the news (about the asteroid) secret because they'd spent so much money it was going to have to be published in the Budget.

And that got me thinking. So I visited the US Debt Clock. They're reporting the US National Debt as approx $55.3 trillion. I assume that's government, company & personal debt all rolled up into one but it's a fair guess that government debt takes up a mighty chunk of that.

Of course, it's not just the USA which is up to it's eyeballs in debt. Governments all around the world are in a similar position. We're even bailing out other impoverished countries even though we can barely service our own debts. These bailouts are carefully coordinated too, nothing's accidental about it, it's all coordinated through the World Bank, the IMF, European Union etc etc. And all this has come about since, when, 2007/8 ?

MSM continually tell us about painful cuts, Congress and Parliaments all over have been debating such things for months. And we can see the cuts all around. They're targeted at those programs which cause least public resistance. Yet far from "reducing the deficit", government expenditure is still rampaging ahead, they're borrowing/printing more money than ever before, with no thought to the consequences whatever.

Now I'm looking out of the window here. I can't see my town's share of these trillions they've been borrowing. The roads are falling to bits. The paint's flaking off the local council offices. Our hospital's had several wards closed. The RAF base up the road is now closed in all but name (no aircraft ... they've been scrapped).

And I come to ATS and read about Elenin/Niburu and 2012. The sane, sensible,middle-aged & quietly conservative person I am normally regards such things as utter nonsense. But even I'm now wondering if there couldn't there be some truth in the little scene from that movie I watched last night ?

That they're bankrupting our countries because there's "something out there" which needs trillions and trillions of dollars, pounds & euros spent on ? And that governments all around the world are spending such sums willingly, even in the full knowledge & expectation that it spells their own electoral suicide ?

I'd love to hear your thoughts.

My cat can hear approaching thunder well before I can. It hides under the bed.

Some people may be sensitive to gravitational shifts. About a month before anything happens (Sept.), some people will be able to feel a gravitational trough forming. I felt it before the March earthquake. No, really!

Right now I don't feel it. It will show up in my dreams, through my subconscious mind. About the third week in August, I expect the dreams to start. Vague impressions from the subconscious mind.

I don't know if something will happen now, that would be clairvoyance, which is available but too much work. It gives me a headache. Would rather go off a feeling.

Look for a panic sell off in the equity markets in late August if any of the big shots has hidden info.

Have a look here,

All the money data for US you could want: From the Horses mouth

Know it well, in the "official" budget nothing is being hidden all going to banks etc, impossible for us to see the black budget though.

Follow the Drugs esp coc aine that's the black funding.

Kind Regards,

perhaps your sensing not whats up there over our heads---
but rather the floor being pulled out from under your feet...

the new financial landscape is doing away with the 'middle class'
we are the poletariat:

From Wikipedia,Labour economics

The proletariat (from Latin proletarius, a citizen of the lowest class) is a term used to identify a lower social class, usually the working class; a member of such a class is proletarian. Originally it was identified as those people who had no wealth other than their children

then there are those elites, the likes of Geithner, Bernanke, Øbama, the execs at all the levels of the FED/Central Bank RICO Enterprises...

the danger is not some cosmic chunk of rock... its the forced transfer of wealth
being accomplished with the aid of our elected lawmakers.

If I put no my tin foil hat, the way gold is being brought up, the way the world seems to be rushing towards a collapse, all this buying time leaves me feeling something is going to happen, but I honestly think it'll be one of 2 things a global revolution or global conflict.

I would prefer some other reason like an incoming comet etc rather than the usual and obvious man killing man for power and greed.

That sounds like the warnings the economist Maynard-Keynes gave in the pre-WW2 era.. heck he had WW2 pegged in 1919 (he gave a 20 year warning)

Did the OP happen to catch the Thread that discusses all the similarities of "Deep Impact" with our current ELE-nin? It is mind-blowing to say the least!

Comet Elenin is Coming--ATS Thread

It is so uncanny, I sure wish Obama was really played by Morgan Freeman! At least then I might believe him.

I've noticed that politico's who used to be hyper prudent with our money suddenly spending it like money is going out of fashion and at the same time maintenance is not being carried out on public infrastructure almost as if the attitude is "why fix what's gona get broke".

This OP apologises for "coming to the party" late with this thread.

In fact, I'm astounded that I'm even at your party at all

I just can't figure what they're spending all this money on ... I'm at a total loss to explain it. Someone's got to have a clue what the heck is going on.
