This is just a fictional scenario for the possible consequences that the people of the United States are facing in the coming week.

The Preppers are Right - Tom Dennen

The events of the past week have been surreal to me: each passing hour seemed to have another announcement detailing the collapse of the United States. But today, I have no choice but to accept these events and prepare accordingly. Today, reality sank in as I read the following chronology of “highlights” that started on November 16th, 2013 on

2:00 PM The government takes control of all news outlets. The Internet is shut down.


I cannot tell you how I am reading the above on since the Internet is still shut down other than international Internet servers are still operational. All news comes through the government in the US at this point if you have only conventional access to television or the Internet. A simple calculation confirms that I have lost 63% of my assets due to government confiscation and the collapse of the dollar. Although it is unconfirmed, most underground sources are reporting that the government has confiscated all retirement funds in the country.  I have enough food for ten days. My employer has notified all 43 employees that it cannot guarantee our wages if we come to work.

I will work this week and see what happens. What other choice do I have? One neighbour packed his family on Saturday and left. I am watching two others pack now. I have learned a new phrase over the weekend: normalcy bias. At this point, I can only trust that the worst is over and that the government will at least provide me with food and security.

      Would be great if some big ball would get thrown into the game and upset
      all this mess. I cannot believe that they are going to get away with this.

      The US government has always been in control of news outlets, which is why most Americans haven’t got a clue about whats really going on in the world. Fireballs are falling from the sky every few days, but America doesn’t know this because only the ones that can’t be covered up are reported on. Earthquakes over seven mag have gone from 12 a year to 35 a year and America is clueless. Sinkholes are turning the planet inside out, all the while America is lulled to sleep by the Kardashians. The global temperature hasn’t risen in 15 years, yet thanks to the government controlled news outlets, global warming is being blamed for everything from volcanoes and earthquakes to insanity.

      • MAC JAM

        Hey Dawn you said that WELL, I say the same things on a daily basis wherever i post.
        The World and especially Americans go blind. If it wasn’t so tragic it would be comical.

        Everything is coming together beautifully for them after devilish generation after devilish generation took part in satan’s master plan to bring us into/under world governance. This being done via Jesuit Father, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin’s visions of a satanic eutopia .. Thank God that the end of this world is in sight,.. but it is going to get worse,..much, much worse before Jesus returns for His bride at the end of the age. We are on the brink of the time of Jacob’s trouble and people say:”So what!”

        What really astonishes me about the times we are living in, is the fact that the masses are so very well conditioned by televised propaganda, that they just simply accept whatever government tells them and does not think twice about whether or not, things might not work out well for them in the long run…

        Jesus was taken out of our school’s by the United Nation’s through Teilhard’s communistic, humanistic and satanic philosophies which they see as their “How to guide” to prepare this world for satan’s coming as their king, along with the writings of their prophetesses… Alice A. Bailey and madam Blavatsky. Most of the latter’s writings (channeled) are so unbelievably complicated that they can not be conceived as having come from the mind of a mere mortal.

        They see that their rights are being taken away from them left, right and center and that government is moving into the role of God and yet, can not conceive of the fact that those taking away said rights, might be taking orders from the devil itself… but then again… They were programmed not to believe in the only Saviour and Creator God, who’s perceived image is so distorted and with it their own, that they actually believe that they come from a long line of monkeys which in turn came from a rock :lol: :lol: :lol: … We were created in the image of God and he created us male and female (very hard to explain this through evolution “THEORY” by the way)…THIS MAKES US ROYALTY AND SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF THE MOST HIGH… Their surely can’t possibly be a greater honour than that!!!


        Time is fast becoming a luxury we don’t have… PLEASE WAKE UP AND REALIZE WHAT IS HAPPENING!!! IT IS ALMOST TOO LATE NOW… :idea:

        • Anonymous

          the jesuits were founded by a crypto JEW. wake up. this plan for world govt precedes the jesits by at least 2000 yrs. if you want the start look to the babylonian pharisees aka ‘zionists’. please stop with the alex jones-style coverups.

        • 3AM

          @ Anonymous

          I am wide awake thus I do not understand why you felt the need to give me a wake up-call… or how you can even use the title “Pharisees” in conjunction with the Babylonian empire. There wasn’t such a thing then…

          …and I am very aware that this new world thing has been satan’s “big idea” from the very beginning of the Bible,.. or the way in which he wanted to discredit God’s people by making them sin, time and time again, in order for them to loose the protection of God…

          Dan 2:40-43
          And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

          I was merely stating that we are on the cusp of another/FINAL such Babylon at the hands of the Roman Catholic synagogue of satan, through the workings of its Jesuits via freemasonry in every single country of this world. THESE ARE THE AGENTS SATAN USES TODAY…

          …even alex jones can see this,.. but of course you can blame it on the crypto JEW if you like :lol:

        It is Rothshcild that controls the MSM. Supremes allowed breach of monopoly laws decades ago. He also owns all but three banks in the world. When they say ‘china’ they are talking about all the gold Rothschild’s agent relative Rockefeller bought up..then burned his own bank down to hide the receipts of. This crime is called Covet Means. It is used to commit Premeditated Mass Murder of a society by deliberately collapsing the economy; and it is the death penalty under common law.

      You should stop at once referring to a ‘New World Order’ The New World Order is the Old World Order with a CFRtv propaganda machine. The City of London is the cause of all this noise. From 9-11 til this minute, their hands are filthy.

    • bob-bob-bob

      Great Article ! I do disagree with the author on the antics of reid and pelosi , they have hitched their wagons to obama’s and stand shoulder to shoulder with him . They have no fear of retribution from him, as well as most liberals . And the president can use them as window dressing to show the country that they agree with him . The Republicans , Tea Party members and Conservatives as well as journalists and talk show hosts would all be rounded up and arrested . I am sure some in Congress would head for the hills but not that many . I pray that this dosen’t happen but somthing in the back of my mind keeps telling me it will . God help us .

      Even though this sceanafio is fiction, the way to avoid it would be to roll back the minimum wage, roll back laws on employer mandated health insurance, make union membership strictly voluntary, limit lawsuit awards, then the u.s. would be back on top of its game in ramping up our gdp, but we can’t do thid because we have become reliant on more and more money in individuals pockets.
