Signs That The Elite Are Feverishly Preparing For Something BIG

What in the world are the elite up to?  In recent days, we have learned that the New York Fed is moving a lot of operations to Chicago because of concerns about what a “natural disaster” could do, the federal government is buying 62 million rounds of ammunition commonly used in AR-15 semi-automatic rifles for “training” purposes, and NORAD is moving back into Cheyenne Mountain because it is “EMP-hardened”.  In addition, government authorities have scheduled a whole host of unusual “training exercises” all over the nation.  So are the elite doing all of this in order to prepare for something really BIG, or should we just chalk up all of this strange activity to rampant government paranoia?

First, let’s talk about what the New York Fed has been doing.  What kind of natural disaster would be bad enough to completely shut down the operations of the New York Federal Reserve Bank?  It would have to be something very unusual, and apparently the New York Fed is very concerned that such an event could happen.  According to Reuters, the New York Fed has been transferring personnel to Chicago and building up its satellite office there just in case a “natural disaster” makes it impossible for normal operations to continue in New York…

The New York branch of the U.S. Federal Reserve, wary that a natural disaster or other eventuality could shut down its market operations as it approaches an interest rate hike, has added staff and bulked up its satellite office in Chicago.

Some market technicians have transferred from New York and others were hired at the office housed in the Chicago Fed, according to several people familiar with the build-out that began about two years ago, after Hurricane Sandy struck Manhattan.

Officials believe the Chicago staffers can now handle all of the market operations that are done daily out of the New York Fed, which is the U.S. central bank’s main conduit to Wall Street.

This seems very odd.

In all of U.S. history, there has never been a natural disaster in New York City that would have been bad enough to totally shut down the operations of the New York Fed for an extended period of time.

So why are they so concerned?

Well, I can think of one event that could cause such a disruption…

An east coast tsunami.

This is something that I wrote about in this article.  But other than that, it is hard to imagine a natural disaster which could shut down the New York Fed for an extended period of time.

Another very odd thing that we learned about this week is an absolutely massive purchase by the government of ammunition that is commonly used in AR-15 semi-automatic rifles.  The following comes from an article by Paul Joseph Watson

The Department of Homeland Security is set to purchase over 62 million rounds of ammo typically used in AR-15 semi-automatic rifles, just weeks after the ATF was forced to back down on a ban on M855 bullets.

posting on this week reveals that the DHS is looking to contract with a company to provide 12.6 million rounds of .223 Remington ammunition per year for a period of five years – totaling 62.5 million bullets.

The solicitation explains that the purchase is intended, “to achieve price savings over the current .223 Rem duty ammunition.” The bullets will be used by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents nationwide for “training” purposes.

Why in the world would U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents nationwide need such a massive amount of ammunition for “training” purposes?

That seems very odd.

Something else that seems very strange is the fact that NORAD is moving back into Cheyenne mountain after all these years…

It shut down nearly ten years ago as the threat from Russia seemed to subside, but this week the Pentagon announced that Cheyenne Mountain will once again be home to the most advanced tracking and communications equipment in the United States military.

The shift to the Cheyenne Mountain base in Colorado is designed to safeguard the command’s sensitive sensors and servers from a potential electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack, military officers said.

The Pentagon last week announced a $700 million contract with Raytheon Corporation to oversee the work for North American Aerospace Command (NORAD) and US Northern Command.

Admiral William Gortney, head of NORAD and Northern Command, said that ‘because of the very nature of the way that Cheyenne Mountain’s built, it’s EMP-hardened.’

So the U.S. military is concerned about an EMP attack all of a sudden?

Have they been reading The Economic Collapse Blog?

Spending 700 million dollars to move back inside a mountain just because it is “EMP-hardened” is a pretty big deal.

Do they know something that we don’t?

On top of everything else, we have been seeing lots of strange “training exercises” being scheduled all over the nation recently.

For example, the following is from a news story about one being held in Iowa

This week you may notice extra emergency vehicles and public safety officers running around in tactical gear, Hazmat suits, and bomb suits. It’s a part of a statewide drill Des Moines is hosting Tuesday and Wednesday to prepare emergency personnel for dealing with weapons of mass destruction.

Brian O’Keefe with the Des Moines Fire Department said emergency officials in Iowa need to be prepared for anything.

“You know we’re number one seed producer with corn and soy, chicken embryo development, middle of the country heartland. So I’m sure all states access it. But we’re a target like any other large community,” said O’Keefe.

And here is an excerpt form a news story about an exercise known as “Northern Exposure” that is being held in Michigan

The National Guard event is called Northern Exposure, which is taking place across Michigan during the month of June, he said. According to the Michigan National Guard website, Northern Exposure is “a major exercise in Michigan where the military provides defense support to civilian authorities.”

In addition, the U.S. military will be conducting some “unusual” training activityout in Arizona and California

If you see some unusual helicopters overhead in the next couple of days, there’s nothing to worry about.

The I Marine Expeditionary Force G-7 will be conducting a Realistic Military Training this week, using the Prescott Municipal Airfield as a helicopter refueling point in order to facilitate a Long Range Raid at Camp Navajo, Arizona.

This Certification Exercise (CERTEX) is directed to be conducted from April 8-21, 2015 at various training locations throughout California and Arizona. The training at Prescott will take place on April 15, 16.

All of this is in addition to the exercise that people have really been buzzing about.  It is called “Jade Helm”, and in this particular “unconventional warfare exercise”, the states of Texas and Utah will be designated as “hostile territory”

“Jade Helm is a challenging eight-week joint military and Interagency (IA) Unconventional Warfare (UW) exercise conducted throughout Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado,” according to an unclassified military document announcing the training drill, which runs from July 15 through September 15.

Multiple branches of the US military, including Green Berets, Navy Seals, and the 82nd Airborne Division, will participate in the 8-week long exercise, which may result in “increased aircraft in the area at night.”

Troops will be tasked with honing advanced skills in “large areas of undeveloped land with low population densities,” and will work alongside “civilians to gain their trust and an understanding of the issues.”

The exercise, in which some participants will be “wearing civilian clothes and driving civilian vehicles,” lists Texas and Utah as “hostile” territory.

Should we be alarmed by these exercises?

Some people sure think so.

Another thing that has people scratching their heads are the weird closures of Wal-Mart stores all over the nation for supposed “plumbing problems”…

Not just one, but five Walmart stores across the U.S. are closing their doors due to plumbing problems that, in some cases, will take four to six months to repair.

Those closing include locations in Livingston and Midland, Texas; Tulsa, Oklahoma; and near Los Angeles.

For the Brandon Walmart, I talked to Hillsborough County and Walmart to get answers about why these plumbing repairs will take so long and whether the issues are connected, but local customers are already skeptical.

“Why is it just plumbing problems? It’s gonna take them six months to fix up the store?” asked customer John Mambrl.

Yes, is it really going to take them six months to fix the toilets?

Either someone at Wal-Mart is extremely incompetent, or there is something fishy going on here.

In the end, perhaps there is nothing to any of this.

Perhaps all of these examples are just unrelated coincidences.

But then again, perhaps not.

      Well as far as the NY FED moving to Chicago, where else would criminals go, they would be in great company in Chicago. The DHS I believe is buying up more ammo [AR 15] to keep it off of the market and out of the public’s hands, and as far as NORAD is concerned, I have no idea what those crazies are doing.

      • Dustdevil

        Actually, the headquarters of most world banks are actually located in (of all places), Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA. I would have thought that they would move their back-up Wall Street to this city, if they wanted to be ‘close to their bankers’. Obviously, they don’t have a warm-and-fuzzy about Sioux Falls, either then, if they are going only half-way west towards South Dakota to ‘make a second Wall Street’.

        Then again, you don’t hear much about Kansas City, Missouri anymore either – yet back in the 1985-1995 era, that’s all that they kept talking about, was their ‘back-up Washington D.C.’ that they had started building there. I guess the more they thought about ‘The New Madrid Fault’, the less they felt so secure about Kansas City, after all.

        Seems no matter where you go in the U.S., you’ve got a problem that could hit you. (Sioux Falls has Yellowstone, Chicago has the upper New Madrid and potential Tsunami from meteor impact into the great lakes, Kansas City has The New Madrid Fault, and my most-favorite, you have Denver that they think is so safe, yet it is SURROUNDED by volcanoes (from the Valley of Fire in New Mexico, to Yellowstone in Wyoming, to the Cedar City-to-Provo Fault line).

        None of their preparations is going to prepare them for that ‘caught off guard nuke attack’ anyway. Watch for it this summer, when most of the world’s oil is set on fire in the middle east via massive nuclear strike. Whatchya gonna do about ‘high tech back-ups’, when you haven’t got petroleum to power it anymore?

        • The Clucker

          I live in Sioux Falls. Right outside on the Northern edge of the city limits right by the junction of I-90 and I-29 there is a very large unmarked building surrounded by barb-wire topped fencing. Something about it seems ominous to me. Google Earth it. Maybe you would know what it is. Another thing about Sioux Falls is that it’s right by EROS data center. I would think this would make it a prime target if another country were to ever nuke the U.S. For this reason I would think they wouldn’t want to set up operations here but I could be wrong.

        • The Clucker

          On a side note I personally think they would set up shop in Minneapolis.

      The US government, or let’s say, their black alterego, will intentionally crash the economy using a nationwide EMP attack, perhaps even a global EMP attack. It is the only way they figure out to save the US, because they cannot pay back the american debt. What will happen next, a huge civil unrest, then the Us will be divided , no more federal government, by summer probably. The russians understood it too and DUMA tells their MPs to stay in Russia this summer because it’s gonna get HOT.

      The idea of an EMP attack keeps me awake at night. I’ve been getting ready as I can for it. I thought I was pretty prepared, but then if you consider the implications of an EMP, many of us are not prepared like me. I’ve started keeping a printed binder of all the information I was keeping electronically, and have stored batteries and a good emergency radio (here’s a link to find out which radio to get – Does anyone have info as to which kind of CB radio to store?

      • Cleareyes

        Think about it! What good will a radio do you if they jam the waves, FCC owns that, military can easily do that! Think more on term like what they might of had in the Revolution cause that’s where it seems to be going, but we do have knowledge how they still beat the largest best Army at the time no different Bravery and Courage come from every true American, it’s born in him! If you aren’t a true American just get out of the way! If you are you fight! So when the Patriots take America back, and there are many, brave, and smart too! Matter in fact they build spaceships ,and go to space out of their garages, and in their backyards, it back who’s side are you going to be on? That’s the million dollar question! There is a world of knowledge outside the military, most those in military joined cause they didn’t have the best outlook or some the easy kina way out! All they have to do is be willing just like everybody else and let the mastermind do their work! There are experienced ex Military men also! Nothing to fear but fear itself! Lock and Load!

      • an argie

        Why do you need a radio whien noone is broadcasting?
        O they’ll use HAARP for either an EMP attack or creating a tidle wave.

      I see martial law being implemented from the outside edges inward when I look at each situation. for example fed moving to Chicago it explains why Chicago file bankruptcy and so many people left it was planned.Wal-Mart stores in each fema zone closing for jadhelm staging area and base for military big parking lots you could put up fence and bearers in a matter of days. What ever is coming will be supported by a navy. starting with these zones first They will start from south and move north no where to run Canada will stop runners. Once these zones are in control pretty easy to take the rest of the zones in the country norad moving to a secure location that even a nuke will not get you inside. I believe this being the plan and am preparing you should to

      Aren’t comets and asteroids preceding the alien invasion? Not quite enough flying rock panic yet, so I’m thinking that’s next on the agenda.

      miss Clinton was good enough to give a clue about a natural disaster with no specifics.
      hurricane land fall in new jersey flooded the stock/bond depository ,wiping out the paper trail of investments in north America. do you have your copy of your stocks and bonds?
      man made disaster? quantitative easing has taken billions of dollars out of the economy and propped up a false stock market. the green back is now worth pennies on the dollar. this will be self evident in the next few months as the treasuries sell of has no more buyers.
      either scenario will bring panic to the streets!

      The empire is disparate, it’s collapsing and it’s going fast. I believe they are planning to start a nuclear war, first launch. They already tried and failed early this year, then they did an EMP attack against Russia and Russia retaliated with an EMP attack on the White house and state department (look it up). Hence, the reason for moving back under the moutain. These tunnels are all designed to survive a nuclear war, NY will be nuked.
