The Last Weekend to Prep?

Well? I am sure you have all heard or read the news that Russia has been pulling Billions out of Western and U.S. markets and banks the last few days. Someone has been dumping over 100 Billion in U.S. Treasuries and it's a bit unclear who has been picking em up.

I still stand by my projection there ain't a damned thing gonna be done militarily by the West in the Ukraine, however I don't put it past the idiot Femocrats in power to talk us into a financial war we will never win because they have already spent us into a position of total servitude anyway. As I have said before we got no teeth against the holders of our debt and they know it. We cannot fund a real war, and as a Multi-Cult melting pot we cannot remain unified without Eastern cash coming in.

The real question is have we outlived the one or two useful parts we play to the Eastern powers? Are China and Russia ready to cut that cord and cast the U.S. Markets adrift? Do they finally feel they can refine enough of their own oil to live through a collapse of the U.S.?

If those treasuries and dollars come rushing back into the U.S. we should see massive inflation, except the Fed may continue to eat that inflation by continuing to grow their balance sheet. Why not it has worked so far? Except this time the Dollar will suffer a loss on the International market and that's when things get interesting.

We will either see severe shortages or inflation on imported goods. One of the two.

Either way it really amounts to the same thing doesn't it? Either you can't afford the goods that are there or there are no goods to buy with the cash you got which in the end will make what little there is inflate as well.

On the bright side we will still have fuel for a while I reckin.... But for how long?

This scenario is the scariest one imaginable in my mind though. It pretty much assures a collapse and internal conflict inside the U.S. but keeps the rest of the world running more or less. Israel and Taiwan are toast. Japan becomes China's Bitch while the EU would look to their French-side and bend over (Like a Beautiful woman isn't that how the saying goes?) and take it doggy style from Russia.

Here in the U.S. it will be time to start settling some old scores and I doubt we will be a continuous, unified Nation at the other end of that settlement. When severe shortages begin to manifest themselves the cities are going to want the resources of the rural areas plain and simple. In turn that is going to break down along political/racial lines as well. All ya gotta do is consult a 2012 Presidential election map to see how that is going to pan out.

On the plus side dead soldiers may vote but they don't shoot. Keep that in mind....

In my fantasy scenario though the real danger are the various ethnic enclaves. You can bet your armored a$$ that anywhere there is a large population of some foreign group their parent country is going to use em as an excuse to move in.

I think we already seen that in the Crimea haven't we? I wonder if Mexico would invade? Nah I doubt it, not one their own but I could see a little Russia help there in the future if it all goes down like I see.

Still, my bet is come Monday morning Obummer will be on his phone kissing Putin's ass and there will be no sanctions and things will go back to just a little less than they were. Or that this point I am giving it a 70% chance. Russia will keep the Crimea and allow the Ukraine to join the EU so we can (Not) pay off their debt but just add it to our own.

Still better safe than sorry....

Keep Prepping Everyone!!!

  1. You know Russia and China will get what they want as far as "expansion" goes. Can anyone truly stop them??

    1. Rob - Nope. With the debt the way it is no one can take the risk unless they are willing to pay the price.

  2. Major international problems, what would an average community organizer do?
    I thought that if we were nice to other countries and didn't act like Bush then the world would love us and through communication and negotiation we would have one fantastic global government and economy.
    I am preparing more for a barter economy these days, I got another bucket of hop rhizomes yesterday, beer anyone?

    1. Sf - Well I am still of the opinion that even a Regan wouldn't get us out of this situation but a community organizer is only gonna dig us in deeper.

  3. It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine!

    I think things will just go on muddling along like they are, getting worse and worse. Out with a whimper, not a bang.

    1. Harry - Maybe. Putin is not playing with a full deck himself so he may not take the appeasement candy.

  5. And some where out there in the vast expanse of our world is a missing airliner, that could as we speak be getting outfitted to do only God knows what.
    It is one big global pressure cooker out there and it is about to erupt. And the community organizer is out back smoking a carton of newports because he has no clue.

  7. Russia will get Crimea, and the US will once again lose prestige as an International Superpower. Rinse and Repeat.

    1. K - I tend to agree with you but as I said to Harry above I am not sure Putin is dealing with a full deck either. He does seem to be rather thinned skinned where it comes to the US.

  8. Russia will go broke holding Crimea. They are bigger idiots than we are. And that takes some work.

    1. Russ - Interesting theory. Would you care to expand on it as I haven't seen anyone else take that particular stance.

  9. Financially (at least from what I've read) Russian markets have taken a financial beating over this. The question is if the powers that be really care. The assumption seems to be that of course they can't sustain that sort of loss - but what if they have an alternative plan or simply are willing to absorb the pain for a while, at least long enough to outlast the West?
