Awesome post. You're obviously very intelligent and have done a lot of work to create this scenario. I've done a lot of research as well and the current federal government preparation could indeed point to a scenario like this.

One note, it may not be as well controlled as you mention for the start of the event. I would not expect a pre-announced bank holiday while the system is reset. I would more see it as unplanned, the system collapses on itself within a few days, and martial law is implemented after the fact. I totally agree with your timeline though and we probably have 1-2 years max before the collapse. Possibly a lot sooner as you said.

I think what you say is prolly gonna happen, but I think your dreaming if you don't think some other countries will thrive if/when this happens. I also think the US just doesn't have the muscle all on it's own??..and I do believe it will be on it's own, for the most part anyways.

Funny thing about predictions is that they always happen in the "near" future. Right? And therefor NOTHING EVER HAPPENS.

Yes, except... Things really are happening. The pieces are being moved on the chess board by the day. It is more than 'business as usual' in the past few weeks. Or do you think they can keep open cheque QE3 rolling forever, with no consequences? Keep pretending inflation is 3%, keep the interest rate at ZERO, keep saying unemployment is around 8%? Can they really keep pretending much longer?

All "governments" (corporations) are officially bankrupt and have been foreclosed on.

The morality and legality of such a stance is irrelevant - the military industrial complex cronies still have their hands on the joysticks to the drones. The side holding the bigger guns makes the rules. It is too late for a general strike or any kind of mass civil disobedience similar to Argentinians banging their pots and pans together. We are way, way too dependent on the system, and therefore completely at its mercy.
 Quoting: kaibosh


Exactly...somewhere along the way we lost ourselves and forgot that we need to always be in tune with nature and be self sufficient within our communities. When paper money goes to sh!t so will the moral fabric (what is left) of society. But I do not see it happening the way you see it. They will continue to prop it up for a while longer in my opinion.

Very plausible scenario to me. Subtle warnings have been given, prepping has been pushed everywhere including sheeple TV.

Gov. , mil, and DHS are ready with weapons and supplies...POTUS has readied with legislation and EOs.

Oil, which was up slightly in the Overnights, is poised to jump off of the cliff again today...

I think we could see oil in the $88 range by the end of next week...

a $10 drop from it's high last week in the $98 range...

Re: The Trigger has been pulled, the Crash has begun. How are things going to play out? My take...
We have obviously crossed the threshold folks, things are falling apart by the day and the game of Kick the Can has at long last gone as far as it can. The rest of the World no longer has a choice, the United States is no longer the big bully on the playground who won WWII and their fingers are no longer so firmly around the throat of the planet. The long lunatic nightmare of Bernanke monetary ponzi schemes cannot continue.

It will be interesting to see what their plan is to try and switch the U.S. (and possibly the World) to a new currency system. My take?

There will be an immediate bank holiday across the board, stopping all transactions of any kind in all avenues of banking and stock markets. This will likely happen on a Friday afternoon, and there will be no warning. A temporary state of martial law will be instituted, in which people are told to basically stay at home as though they are taking a sudden 'cheap holiday' and things like trucking of supplies of normal groceries and the like will be the only thing still going on under strict military rules, keeping all emergency supplies of diesel available to those lines of credit used for that infrastructure. Military escorts of supply convoys will be the only thing moving on U.S. highways for perhaps several weeks until they restart the engine under the new rules. Police in all cities will be given total freedom to 'shoot first, ask questions later' for any deviation from total movement restriction of citizens. Examples will be made, and the media will carpet bomb the public with this message.

The U.S. will lock down the dollar (both digital and paper) to a complicated SDR basket of currencies around the World, the Canadian dollar will figure heavily in this. This will obviously include devaluation across the board of many world currencies, and some of the currencies (like our Canadian dollar) will also be strictly controlled during this time (wanna know why we care so much? 90% of our economy is still directly tied to you Yanks) The U.N. and IMF will be token heads of an emergency council that all countries of the World will have no choice but to agree to (barring a few examples in the Middle East and North Korea, Cuba, a few South American countries, etc).

Debt restructuring will be performed from top to bottom. The 1.4 Quadrillion derivatives bubble will pop like the veritable tree falling in the forest that no-one hears. The wage structure of the entire United States will be chopped off at the knees when jobs are 'started' again, and people are going to learn rather bluntly that their standard of living is going to drop by a large margin. Even when financial markets are loosened on the leash enough to make it look like things are 'running', foodstuffs and all energy (gas, diesel, natural gas, propane, etc) will be price controlled from that point on. This could be seen as an enforced Socialist military junta rule, which it is, but honestly there really is no choice.

Production of goods will continue by force if necessary, people will clamor to the new low wage positions because they won't have a choice. It is either that or starve.

Inner cities could collapse entirely during the transition period, the military in all forms will setup blockades around zones in these areas and food rations will be handed over in exchange for firearms and ammunition. It doesn't even bear mentioning the horrors that await some areas during this period. Within two weeks of supply infrastructure collapse things like rape, murder, and cannibalism will be commonplace. People are exactly three square meals away from becoming savages, it is as simple as that. In San Fransisco there are 17,500 people per square mile, I won't go into lurid details but let's just say there will be shoot-outs in the local 7/11 for the last bag of Doritos a lot sooner than most people think.

Slowly but surely 'zones' will form, protected areas where people are moved (perhaps forcibly) and live under what seems like a fairly free system but is obviously locked down military camps. Again, is this a bad thing? They aren't necessarily trying to clamp down control, they have known for many decades the collapse would happen under a fiat currency system and have planned accordingly.

There will be a lot of hardship, a lot of deaths, in a lot of areas of the World and United States things will collapse into 'One Second After' conditions where attrition will reduce population drastically over the next several years. The media will cover some of this, but not the true horrors, and it goes without saying that 'the revolution will not be televised'. This means that the Internet will no longer be free, and when and if an 'Internet' is brought back up and running it will be the government sanctioned AOL style system with no freedom of any kind. There will be no anonymous communication, any Internet Service Providers will be under total government control and it will be technically impossible to transmit encrypted packets. As a result communication can be controlled, and when it gets to that point a smattering of free Ham Radio will be the only true source of freedom.

There will be pockets of resistance, even entire States that balk at the new way of things, at first they will be treated with hands off respect but in time they will be forced with simple supply blockades to conform to the new rules. They have the technology, and the patience, and the means to cut off outside supply. There will obviously be a lot of 'free people' out there, entire communities where they are self sufficient in every way - but these will be small Colonial technology areas that are visited by smiling officials on a regular basis to let them know the limitations of such existence.

I obviously can't say exactly when this banking holiday will happen, but I think it is safe to say it is going to happen sometime in the next 18 months for sure, and possibly a LOT sooner than that. They simply cannot keep pretending things are okay for much longer. Anyone who isn't a Prepper yet, there is still time as long as the stores are open and your debit/credit card still works. Lay low, don't brag about supplies, and stockpile simple foodstuffs for the time when your family needs to hunker down.

What do you guys think? I have spent my life as an Eschatological High Priest, studying and preparing for the inevitable Crash of our soft Western Civilization. We have lived the easiest life of any Humans in our History, but that ride is about to come grinding to a halt. How do you think the United States (and the rest of the World) will handle the 'adjustment' that is in the mail?
 Quoting: kaibosh



The can will be kicked evern further....

NOTHING WILL HAPPEN. When they make up money, then it is a made up debt. The only thing that will happen is war when they try to tie oil to another form of currancy. At that point it will be a major war and if we win, we call the shots on erasing all debt, starting over, and controlling everyting all over again. Now if we lose, that is another story that will be financially horrific.

Re: The Trigger has been pulled, the Crash has begun. How are things going to play out? My take...
The "Crash" as you call it will not happen. As long as money is based on NOTHING, which it is, there is no need to worry. Everything else is just to keep the masses busy, give them something to do while the wheels on the bus go round and round.

Everything gets bigger, including debt. So what if what the world has come to know as an "Economy" is based on nothing more than a theory and is transacted in what amounts to 1's and 0's.

The possibilities are endless when the reality doesn't matter.

The sun goes up and the sun goes down. Well it doesn't actually, but from mother earth that's what it looks like and that's what it has and always will look like.

It happened yesterday, it happened today, and it will happen again tomorrow, so spend what you don't have, save what you do have, it doesn't matter.

It never really did.

There will ALWAYS be doom on the horizon, but it is nothing more than heat on the road ahead or a rainbow in the sky.

It's a mirage, and no matter how fast you go or how long you travel, you'll never catch it.

It will be a whole lot worse than anything you can imagine...


Civil disorder, hoarding, rioting and looting begins in earnest, in every city as people are homeless, starving and suffering. Many have lost their homes and possessions due to the mortgage/credit crisis. Massive hyperinflation kicks in, and Congress calls an emergency session to deal with and to mitigate the fallout of a terrible and great depression. Congress bans hoarding and the black market under threat of imprisonment; anyone caught would be immediately incarcerated and sent to a FEMA detention center where they will be processed and punished.


Gangs of civil rioters roam the streets at night and in broad daylight, looting businesses, and peoples’ homes for food. These continue to break out all over as gangs of rioters' loot, rape, murder and pillage.


The riots become severe, ugly and very violent - Police and Military Forces use tear-gas, rubber bullets and concussion grenades to disperse the angry rioting crowds. The military brings in microwave crowd dispersion units, tanks and armoured personnel carriers, and begin patrolling city streets to enforce the Declaration of Martial Law.


More protests erupt against the police and the military, because of the brutality in which they enforce Martial Law. This also leads to limited armed conflicts between armed civilians and the military. Police immediately arrest all the dissenters, who are then rounded up and taken away to unknown locations. Casualties begin to mount, as Hospitals, High schools and Civic Centers are flooded with the dead, the dying and the wounded - a terrible and a great calamity.

4. At some point in all of thia the US suffers a catastrophic military lose. Something so large it has not been seen since WWII...something like the loss of an Aircraft Carrier and all on board.

5. After the catastrophic military loss the US dollar drops like a rock as the only strength the US dollar has is our military strength.

6. At some point thereafter we are attacked by scud type rockets fired from nondescript container ships off off the east coast, west coast and the gulf of Mexico all tipped with EMP weapons made in North Korea.

Hello,

THIS is why I LOVE reading GLP!!

You've just sent me off searching for threads (other sites?) identifying candidates for your point #4 - something about some mothballed or postponed decommissioning of a current carrier/carrier group as the likely sacrificial vessel (like the U.S.S. Liberty and what was supposedly doen in advance of Pearl Harbor - i.e. it was bait which the Japanese took!).

Also re: #6 I know that folks who frequent here haven't forgotten but the general public is too harried, harrassed and distracted to remember the plume off the coast of CA in Nov 2010 that, to my mind, recollection, and search skills was NEVER explained, or (more importantly) contradicted, as PROOF that point #6 has already happened and is in place to be executed this time for real - with missles pointed inland.

Curfew:

Many people are caught out in the open on the streets after curfew, and are forced into FEMA centers, as the military takes over complete control of all civil authority, with the full authorization of congress and of the President.


People at home are ordered to stay inside for prolonged and indefinite periods of time during civil armed conflicts with civilians, many of them missing loved ones who may have been detained on the streets while looking for food, water and supplies, and taken into camps to some discreet unknown location.


Strict curfews are put into affect in every city, as the nations streets quickly turn into deserted ghost towns; you can hear the ominous wail of air raid sirens as the night approaches, and curfew takes affect. Rotating blackouts are very common, as are natural gas shortages during winter months as the reality of another American Civil War has now been fully realized.


America is at War...not with another nation, but with its own hungry people...and in particular those who speak against and who oppose the powers of the President, his cabinet, house, and senate and their New World Order policies.

Re: The Trigger has been pulled, the Crash has begun. How are things going to play out? My take...
You, like many others, dont actually understand what money is or what it represents.
To base a new currency offered by a failure and defrauder will be no easy task, and to create another fiat out of whole cloth based on the same promises,or should I say bankrupt promises will have no weight internationally.
You cannot decree value to other countries in the world, you may be able to force the internal commerce to take it at the point of a gun, but nobody outside the borders will trade with you.
o make your new currency worth something to the rest of the world, you have to make it representative of something the rest of the world wants, that you have.

If an entity were able to control the world the United States would not have had an opportunity to exist. The United States Government is at the same point previous regimes have failed and disappeared.
It will be hard. We will all suffer a decline in our baubles and things.
Our freedom will be increased to the same extent we are each able to take responsibility for ourselves. This is not a corporate responsibility but it is personal responsibility.

It took 12 years for them to get this far (since 9/11 and the patriot act)... I suspect they will let things continue to wind down like a top that is about to fall over. When the crash finally happens, things will have inflated/deflated so much that no one will be surprised at all. Even more people will already be out of work and many more stores will have closed.

We're close... but I don't think its 'any day now' close.

I say you are wrong.

Whats going to happen is the illusion that the economy is recovering will continue until they disarm everyone and most will be bled out financially until they are picking undigested corn out of their own shit. Only then will they realize that they have been lied to.

It's not the plan, the plan is to strip the public of all its privately held wealth, then criminalize them for not having enough, and then exterminate the ones that resist or submit.
The only real wealth coveted by the value hoarders is the lack of any competition or fear of reprisal.
Until their victims are buried and forgotten, they wont have enough to be satisfied.

The bottom line is that they have enough now, as long as the rest of you disappear. They dont need any of you anymore

The best part about this experience is that we all share it but at the end of the day nobody knows...nobody.

You, like many others, dont actually understand what money is or what it represents.
To base a new currency offered by a failure and defrauder will be no easy task, and to create another fiat out of whole cloth based on the same promises,or should I say bankrupt promises will have no weight internationally.
You cannot decree value to other countries in the world, you may be able to force the internal commerce to take it at the point of a gun, but nobody outside the borders will trade with you.
o make your new currency worth something to the rest of the world, you have to make it representative of something the rest of the world wants, that you have.
A bankrupt govt either promises the confiscated labor of its subjects or the confiscated property of its subjects, there is nothing else anyone else wants from a proven defaulter and liar

I can think of a financial "life boat" poised and ready to make it's debut. How about an RV's Iraqi Dinar? Looks like a set-up from the get-go . . .
