One of my primary concerns regarding the forthcoming economic chaos and societal breakdown is that there will be nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. As normalcy bias evaporates like tears on dehydrated sunken cheeks, hungry neighbors and pre-collapse friends and acquaintances will soon assimilate into zombie hoards and come knocking like its Halloween.

What are you going to do? Shoot them?
Regardless, saying “I told you so” or “I tried to warn you, but you didn’t listen” will not be an effective deterrent. Furthermore, the resultant chaos will also deliver local strongmen and gangs ready to thieve and plunder amidst widespread violence and starvation.
In such a scenario, any lone bananas are sure to be skinned.
Are you ready?
Because very few will have the opportunity to bug out to a remote location and surprisingly, an isolated cabin in the woods, or a fenced-off hidden homestead in a rural area may not be best after all. Take it from Fernando Ferfal Aguirre, who survived the economic collapse in Argentina. In his book, “Surviving the Economic Collapse”, he described geographic areas as like organisms dying; where the extremities perish first. Aguirre identifies the urban areas as the safer places to work, trade, and live; with the rural areas as targets for roving gangs to raid and set up camp out of the reach of city services, police, and fire departments.
Therefore, since we know the endgame, what if we could parlay that into building trust with others now? Perhaps entire regions could be fortified in a balkanized America, simply by reorganizing current civil administrations. All that would be required would be for the heads of select institutions and agencies to work in coordination, quickly, and decisively as the proverbial excrement collides into the whirling flabellum. Roving bands, gangs, cartels, and feral feds, might then decide to move on to easier targets.
But any micro- constitutional republics must become self-sufficient very quickly; or at least before “every man for himself” requires a strongman to maintain order.
So, in the meantime, how can we attempt to convert the unconverted? How can we wake up the sleeping sheeple and lead them into the ideological promised land prior to any cataclysmic post-apocalyptic tribulations?
These are the questions.
Years ago, I wrote an article on “How to Woo a Moonbatted Snowflake” outlining a prospective strategy for red-pilling our blue-pilled friends. Accordingly, over the last several days, I’ve utilized my online blogging experience and three-dimensional relations to hone what I believe might be another effective strategy. So I had breakfast with a socialist physician friend and tested my new tactic. My desire was to overcome the left-right dichotomy by establishing commonality toward the goal of achieving a political rapport. Then, I could potentially close the deal and wake him up.
So far, in its early stages, the strategy has worked pretty well with one test subject. Overall, I am pleased with the results. Better to have friends than enemies in the post-apocalypse and that’s what’s at stake in my opinion.
I chose a socialist who self-identifies as a liberal because I knew he would be one of the more difficult to convert of all my friends and acquaintances. First, we made small talk and eventually our conversation drifted into current events and, in particular, a text exchange I had on Tuesday November 12, 2019 with one of our RINO (Republican In Name Only) friends who identifies as a Republican. The RINO sent me the following meme this last Tuesday, or the day before the “public” congressional impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump’s alleged malfeasance in Ukraine:
Consequently, the following is a screenshot of our ensuing text exchange. The RINO’s messages are boxed in green and mine is in gray.
Of course, the main point here is that I said impeachment would implode and, the next day, on Wednesday November 12, 2019 – the collapse started. The fatal blows were delivered by Republican Devin Nunes in his opening statements, Ohio Republican Jim Jordan’s ridiculing of the Democrat’s supposed “star witnesses” and, especially, when Texas Republican John Ratcliffe asked acting Ukraine Ambassador William Taylor and U.S. State Department drone George Kent the following question:
So, in this impeachment hearing today where we impeach presidents for treason or bribery or other high crimes, where is the impeachable offense in that call?
Their answer? Crickets.
I commented to the socialist how the RINO always projects concern for my emotional state every time I refuse to accept his faulty premises. To which the socialist said: “We have hope that you will wake up someday when it comes to Trump and the Republicans”.
“But”, I said, “That’s strange because I sent the RINO a link to an article on Tuesday that was not very flattering of Trump”.
The socialist replied: “My Dad used to be a Republican until he came to his senses in his old age. We have the same hope for you”.
And this is where I began my latest approach.
I said: “It seems to me so much of this left-right dichotomy is comparable to watching a football game while the roof is on fire. Ya know?”
Of course, he nodded because Trump. I continued: “I know this is where you will once again call me a tinfoil-hat-wearing conspiracy theorist, but did you know Abraham Lincoln predicted a day when America would be taken over by corporations?
He smiled and asked if I saw a series called “Continuum” on Netflix that was about corporations ruling the world. I replied that I had not seen that one, but the films “Rollerball” and “Network” came to my mind regarding that subject (I am older than him).
Next, I mentioned how Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President of the United States, referenced powerful men who were afraid to speak “condemnation” of a concentric inner circle consisting of even more powerful men:
Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the U.S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.
– Woodrow Wilson, “The New Freedom” (1913).
Then I commented on how former President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned of the “Military Industrial Complex” in his farewell address and on John F. Kennedy’s “Secret Society” speech delivered just 100 days after Ike’s.
Next, I spoke of the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913 and mentioned the book “The Creature from Jekyl Island” before saying that I viewed Wall Street and Main Street as distinctly separate constructs.
At this, the socialist commented on how only the rich ever got richer.
I then stated how I believe some things are worth conserving like the U.S. Constitution, and how I was grateful that I was able to grow up in, at least, the fading light of Norman Rockwell’s America.
“Sure”, I continued, “You might say that blacks were treated badly in the 1950s, but leftists today have coopted civil rights when, in truth, it began in the churches of Montgomery County, Alabama. Ya know?”
At this, the socialist paused and seemed like he was going to say something but, then, just slightly nodded.
Next, I mentioned how Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein, after leaving the Washington Post, wrote a 25,000-word cover story in Rolling Stone magazine in October 1977 on how the mainstream media has coordinated “hand in glove with the Central Intelligence Agency” (CIA). I chose Bernstein because I thought he might find him more accessible than any potential “conspiracies” regarding “Operation Mockingbird”.
I furthermore shared how I’ve watched politics closely from the times of Jimmy Carter’s gas lines, hostages in Iran, Ronald Reagan, “Borked” Supreme Court nominees, a thousand points of light, a new world order, blue dresses, hanging chads, and lost friends from drunken tirades over Benghazi.
I told him how I was a patriotic neocon in the wake of September 11, 2001 and that I agreed with George the Younger that it was better for us to kill them over there than them killing us over here. I mentioned how I disagreed with one of my politically independent friends who said it was a mistake for us to invade Iraq over “weapons of mass destruction”.
The socialist smiled, and added: “They weren’t there”.
I replied: “Nope. Yet, even after that, I swore to my friend that we had the Iran mullahs shaking in their slippers before Democrat Harry Reid, as Senate Majority leader in 2007, exclaimed to the world that the U.S. had lost the war in Iraq.
“That really pissed me off”, I said, “But, still, I was fooled and my friend was right.”
The socialist looked at me seriously. It seemed he appreciated my candidness and was curious as to where I might be going with all this.
So I continued.
I commented how the same media outlets that tricked us with “weapons of mass destruction” are now being used by the Military-Industrial Complex as “weapons of mass distraction”. In other words, the same corporate media who tricked me with non-existent WMD’s fooled him with Russian collusion.
“Trump was elected on the platform of immigration and trade”, said I. “But just as Bush II doubled the national debt and Obama doubled debt once more, so, too, do the deficits grow under Trump. The bankers always win.”
To which the socialist mentioned tax cuts as the reason for Trump’s exploding deficits and our discussion drifted into other economic topics.
Eventually, I asked him: “What if Trump was meant to be a wrecking ball? I mean, think about it. All of our institutions are now failing – the media, the FBI and Department of Justice, Congress, and even U.S. elections. What happens in 2020 if Trump says illegal immigration turned Texas blue and contests the results? Civil war?”
I could see the socialist thinking about that one. He added: “The extremes on both sides are the problem. Maybe what we need is a new Centrist Party”.
“But really…”, I stated, “there are two primary dynamics at play. Globalism, or rather, centralized power via the United Nations as opposed to constitutional national sovereignty. In that regard, then, the globalists must destroy America. Do you see?”
He just looked at me blankly, but I could see the wheels turning. Maybe he liked that idea. I didn’t ask. Instead, I kept going.
“What if the Trump Show was reality TV?” I asked. “Because he talked about financial bubbles as a candidate, but now, as president, he has taken complete ownership of the financial markets. If the economy crashes, Warren or Sanders or one of the current Democratic Party primary contenders will likely win the presidency. And if they do and then try to take the guns, then that could spark a civil war as well. Ya know?”
I added that I thought Trump was either 1.) real and trying to drain the swamp, 2.) real and unwittingly serving as a scapegoat for the global financial elite or 3.) a Judas Goat working in conjunction with the globalists.
The socialist responded by saying that he thought Trump was just an asshole using the presidency for his personal financial gain and that he would hate Trump no matter what party he represented. “He used to be a Democrat, you know.”
I then mentioned how the infamous underworld attorney, Roy Cohn, Trump’s mentor, once said in an interview that Trump was the closest thing to a genius he’d ever seen on earth.
To which the socialist responded by saying: “He may be a marketing genius, but that’s it.”
We then talked about how Hillary Clinton benefited from super-delegates in 2016 in order to steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders. He said he thought Bernie would have beat Trump.
In turn, I replied: “So if that was rigged, maybe the powers-that-be wanted Trump to win.”
He nodded to that and this is where we stopped for the day. All in all it was a good conversation and we avoided the left-right talking points and positions.
At some point, however, I want to take it to new levels and I do believe he may be receptive. We’ll see.
It is my intention to eventually mention the secret CIA initiative revealed by former United States Naval Intelligence Briefing Team member William Cooper. In his 1991 book “Behold a Pale Horse”, Cooper described a plan by the CIA to utilize drugs and hypnosis on mental patients in order to coerce them into shooting children in schools. The project was meant to inflame the antigun lobby and cause middle-class Americans to beg their government “protectors” into obliterating the 2nd Amendment.
– Cooper, Milton William. (1991). “Behold a Pale Horse”, Light Technology Publications, page 225
If the socialist is receptive, I might explain to him some of the mass killing event timelines as described in my August 2019 article “Politicians Promote Murder, Mayhem, & Terror to Propagandize Political Agendas & Consolidate Power”; some of the more recent examples, of course, taking place prior to the 2018 Midterm Elections.
Just after the Democrats bared their collective asses during the Kavanaugh Hearings, right on schedule, an anti-semitic white nationalist shot up a synagogue in Pittsburgh and a Republican, with “Make America Great Again” stickers on his white van, was arrested for mailing explosive devices to President Trump’s most prominent political opponents.
Then, later, immediately after Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s pathetic testimony before Congress on July 24, 2019 – the following occurred:
– On Sunday July 28, 2019 suspect Santino William Legan, 19, used an AK-47 rifle to murder three people and maim 13 others at a garlic festival in Gilroy, California.
– Six days later, on Saturday August 3, 2019, at a Walmart in El Paso Texas – Patrick Crusius, 21, used an AK-47 rifle to kill 24 people; injuring 22 more.
– And the very next day, on Sunday August 4, 2019 Connor Stephen Betts, 24, used a .223-caliber rifle to murder 10 people and wound at least 27 others.
And, the most recent shooting? It occurred at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita California on November 14, 2019; the day of this writing and, obviously, the day after the public impeachment hearings collapsed on live television.
What a way to change the narrative, because, today, the Santa Clarita shooting had been the leading story on AM radio top-of-the-hour newsbreaks as well as populating the twitter feeds of Democratic Party leaders.
These events quite often appear to unveil in similar ways: There are shots fired, followed by eyewitness accounts of more than one shooter. Then, the YouTube videos of those reporting on multiple attackers will be scrubbed from the internet.
Within hours, the murderers will be reported to be extremely troubled, if not insane, and likely on psychotropic drugs, as several people claim they all “saw it coming”, or, in some instances, saying they were completely surprised that the person they knew could massacre so many.
Additionally, prophetic postings placed prior on social media by the shooter will be revealed – but most always after it’s too late. And, typically, of course, an AR-type rifle, or semi-automatic handgun will have been used and most often with larger-capacity magazines. And, quite often, a manifesto of some sort is discovered.
Then, finally, like the sun rising after a long dark night, the political establishment will loudly crow like over-caffeinated roosters about “doing something” so “it never happens again”.
The national narrative has been changed as if by explosive remote control; the ensuing gun debate will further divide the country as it mobilizes the Political Left and Right; as President Trump is once again placed under tremendous political pressure to move against guns. In so doing, he loses the support of his base.
Yet, in spite of all these outcomes, can anyone PROVE these timely massacres are false flags? Of course not. Because bullshit fills the air while the world turns. To the victims and their families, please accept my condolences. And Epstein didn’t kill himself.
