14 Signs That Most Americans Are Flat Broke And Totally Unprepared For The Coming Economic Crisis

14 Signs Americans Are Flat Brokeby Michael Snyder
The Economic Collapse

Feb 23, 2015

When the coming economic crisis strikes, more than half the country is going to be financially wiped out within weeks.  At this point, more than 60 percent of all Americans are living paycheck to paycheck, and a whopping 24 percent of the country has more credit card debt than emergency savings.  One of the primary principles that any of these “financial experts” that you see on television will teach you is to have a cushion to fall back on.  At the very least, you never know when unexpected expenses like major car repairs or medical bills will come along.  And in the event of a major economic collapse, if you do not have any financial cushion at all you will be a sitting duck.  Yes, I know that there are millions upon millions of families out there that are just trying to scrape by from month to month at this point.  I hear from people that are deeply struggling in this economy all the time.  So I don’t blame them for not being able to save lots of money.  But if you are in a position to build up an emergency fund, you need to do so.  We have been experiencing an extended period of relative economic stability, but it will not last.  In fact, the time for getting prepared for the next great economic downturn is rapidly running out, and most Americans are not ready for it at all.  The following are 14 signs that most Americans are flat broke and totally unprepared for the coming economic crisis…

#1 According to a survey that was just released, 24 percent of all Americans have more credit card debt than emergency savings.

#2 That same survey discovered that an additional 13 percent of all Americans do not have any credit card debt, but they do not have a single penny of emergency savings either.

#3 At this point, approximately 62 percent of all Americans are living paycheck to paycheck.

#4 Adults under the age of 35 in the United States currently have a savings rate of negative 2 percent.

#5 More than half of all students in U.S. public schools come from families that are poor enough to qualify for school lunch subsidies.

#6 A study that was conducted last year found that more than one out of every three adults in the United States has an unpaid debt that is “in collections“.

#7 One survey discovered that 52 percent of all Americans really cannot even financially afford the homes that they are living in right now.

Shock Report: Domestic Black Sites Now Operational

by Mac Slavo
Activist Post
Feb 26, 2015

For nearly two decades alternative media has warned of government internment camps where citizens would be disappeared, detained and tortured with no regard for their rights. For nearly two decades the notion has been dismissed by the general population as just another conspiracy theory.

But a new report out of Chicago suggests that not only are such facilities real, they have now been actively integrated into the nation’s law enforcement apparatus.

The Chicago police department operates an off-the-books interrogation compound, rendering Americans unable to be found by family or attorneys while locked inside what lawyers say is the domestic equivalent of a CIA black site.

The facility, a nondescript warehouse on Chicago’s west side known as Homan Square, has long been the scene of secretive work by special police units. Interviews with local attorneys and one protester who spent the better part of a day shackled in Homan Square describe operations that deny access to basic constitutional rights.

[…]

“Homan Square is definitely an unusual place,” Church told the Guardian on Friday. “It brings to mind the interrogation facilities they use in the Middle East. The CIA calls them black sites. It’s a domestic black site. When you go in, no one knows what’s happened to you.

According to those who have been detained at the site against their will and absent their natural and constitutional rights, the Chicago facility is exactly what you might expect from a government-run internment and detention center.

  • Family members and attorneys are unable to locate a detainee because those arrested and sent to the black site are never entered into booking databases. They are simply “disappeared.”
  • Detainees are beaten by police in what can only be described as torture.
  • Access to phone calls and judges are restricted so once you are in there is no way to call for help to let anyone know you are there
  • Attorneys are denied access because the site has been deemed a high security facility
  • People are regular shackled for extended periods of time

Russia: US-Backed Opposition Leader Gunned Down in Moscow

by Tony Cartalucci
New Eastern Outlook
Feb 28, 2015

Martyrdom on demand: if not of use alive, perhaps of use dead? US-backed opposition groups in Russia have so far failed utterly to produce results. Their transparent subservience to Washington coupled with their distasteful brand of politics has left a rather unpleasant taste in the mouth of most Russians. Each attempt to spread the “virus” of color revolution to Moscow, as US Senator John McCain called it, has failed – and each attempt has fallen progressively flatter.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has never been more popular. His ability to weather serial provocations aimed at Russia by NATO has made him a champion against the perceived growing injustice exacted against the developing world by an increasingly militaristic and exploitative West.

So when US-backed opposition groups in Russia decided to gather again this coming March 1, Sunday, many wondered just exactly what they expected to accomplish.

Bloomberg just a day ago, would report in an article titled, “Anti-Putin Opposition Looks to Russian Spring for Revival,” that:

Just before he was jailed for handing out leaflets at a metro station, Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny used his last moments in a Moscow court to record a video urging supporters to join a March 1 protest against President Vladimir Putin. 

Navalny’s removal from the “Spring” rally by a 15-day sentence underlined the beleaguered state of an opposition movement that brought 100,000 onto Moscow’s streets three years ago as well as the Kremlin’s unease about the potential for unrest in Russia.

Squeezed by government persecution and Putin’s near-record approval rating, Russia’s opposition is betting that an unfolding economic crisis will spark a spring revolt on a scale last seen at the winter protests of 2011-2012, the largest since the collapse of Communism 20 years earlier. It seeks to draw as many as 100,000 people to the “anti-crisis march” in Moscow, with protests also planned in 15 other cities. They’ll highlight declining living standards and the conflict in eastern Ukraine that triggered U.S. and European Union sanctions against Russia.

The article however, also stated that:

The opposition “hasn’t been this weak for many years,” Stefan Meister, an analyst at the German Council of Foreign Relations in Berlin, said by phone. “Even when we have a growing economic crisis in Russia, there’s still high support for Putin.”

Clearly to match the expectations the “spring” rally was meant to have, to infuse the “virus” US Senator McCain had claimed was intended for Moscow, something drastic would have to be done to change the current calculus.

The prospect of triggering sustainable unrest aimed at the Kremlin was beyond impossible – that is – until the leader of the planned protest was shot dead, practically on the steps of the Kremlin itself in the heart of Moscow.

Boris Nemtsov, was reportedly shot four times in the back on Friday night in a drive-by shooting. His body laid conveniently for media photographers to capture the Kremlin looming in the background.

Russia immediately condemned the killing, with President Putin noting it was an act of “pure provocation.”

Nemtsov’s Questionable Ties to US Agitators 

Nemtsov had led US-backed opposition protests for years. In 2012, he was caught literally walking into the US Embassy in Moscow to meet with then newly appointed US Ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul who had serve on the board of directors of Freedom House and the National Endowment for Democracy (NED).

The significance of this cannot be overstated.

Starbucks Logo Secrets Revealed

by Anonymous
Blog Globs

May 12, 2010

When you see that Starbucks logo, you probably think the same thing as me:  “There’s that ‘smiling mermaid’ logo, there must be some good, but overpriced, coffee nearby”, or perhaps “There’s that evil Starbucks corporation that’s helping to destroy the world”.

Well, today for the first time I decided to look at the Starbucks logo with the mindset that there may be some hidden symbolism there, designed for the subconscious mind but not the conscious mind.

(Does the subconscious mind actually exist?  Absolutely.  When you dream, those are all the thoughts of your subconscious id surfacing, without the usual censorship of your conscious ego, as Sigmund Freud would phrase it).

As I looked for the Starbucks symbolism, I believe I found it.  Others would charge that I had a predetermined goal so I merely saw what I wanted to see.

When I tell you what I found, their message will go from your subconscious mind, where you have no danger filters whatsoever, to your conscious mind, where you can judge for yourself how appropriate or inappropriate their manipulation of your senses is.

Or you can disagree with me, but nevertheless the logo’s alleged hidden meaning can never again be sublimated from your conscious memory back to your unguarded subconscious level.

Incidentally, the original masters of subconscious thought and manipulation, prior to the MK-Ultra brainwashers of Manchurian Candidates and their ilk, are Sigmund Freud (who had more hang-ups than Woody Allen’s closet, incidentally) and Hitler’s favourite, Edward Bernays.

When I say “breakfast”, do you think “bacon and eggs”?  That’s Edward Bernays.

Why have bananas always been cheap (until now) and why is Guatemala still ruined?  Because of the Chiquita banana company, US secret agents, and Edward Bernays, according to Wikipedia.

Why did cigarettes, once “forbidden” for women, become popular with women, seemingly overnight, in the 1940s, addicting and killing millions of innocent female victims over the years?  Once again, the subconscious advertising campaigns of Edward Bernays.  But I’m getting off-topic here.

Question:  Have you ever seen a mermaid with two tails?

Answer:  Yes, but you may not have noticed.  Look at the Starbucks logo:

It features a mermaid with two “tails”.  How could a mermaid swim  with two tails?  She couldn’t.

But are they really “tails”?  Or is it an image of a woman spreading her serpentine “legs” apart for the sex act?

Sounds about par for the course for perverted sex-obsessed corporate leaders, doesn’t it?

And are the black-and-white stripes on her “tails” perhaps striped leggings symbolizing the balance of good and evil, as featured in the Alice in Wonderland movies?

(I haven’t seen the Johnny Depp version, but I’m sure it is filled with mirrors, Saturnalian reversals of logic, black-and-white checkered floors, chess games, twins, hookahs, magic mushrooms, pills, and other assorted hallucinogenic drugs, to name only a few of their symbols).

Also notice that the mermaid’s wavy hair forms a sort of mirrored 333/333, or “666”.  Her hair also resembles the waves of the ocean (Pisces, Aquarius, Atlantis).  The mermaid forms a fancy “peace sign” as well.  The peace sign, of course, doesn’t really symbolize peace at all, it is an ancient rune symbolizing death, also known as the Broken Cross, the Crow’s Foot, and the Witch’s Foot, and used on Nazi graves.

Here is the logo from the Order of Baphomet (satan).

Note the double circle with two stars.

Mermaids are said to drown humans by dragging them underwater, sometimes purposely, sometimes by accident. In British folklore, mermaids are unlucky omens.

The “Voodoo Child” Jimi Hendrix wrote a song called “1983 (A Merman I Shall Be)”, about his desire to be a male mermaid in Atlantis, or possibly a reincarnation of Ethel Merman.

Speaking of voodoo (aka “vodou”), Canada’s Governor-General Michaelle Jean’s coat-of-arms has two “Simbi”, mermaid spirits from Haitian vodou, as supporters.  Why was a practitioner of voodoo chosen to represent the Queen in Canada?  Her coat-of-arms has been mysteriously removed from the “Public Register of Arms, Flags, and Badges of Canada”, where it was once available for viewing.  Here it is from another source:

Does the “double mermaid” logo of Starbucks also represent the twin mermaid spirits of voodoo witchcraft?

Are voodoo “Simbi” (singular:  “Simba”) related to Disney’s “Lion King”, who was also called “Simba”?  Yes, “Simba” is Swahili for “lion”, but why is their “hero’s” name also a voodoo term?  Is the “magic” guiding Disney’s immoral movies these days really the spirit of voodoo?

Modern references to “Atlantis” refer to the desire for an ancient occult-based “master race” to be re-established on Earth.  The implication is that the inhabitants were half-alien and half-human, like the Nephilim (fallen angels) in the Bible or the demonic Navi in Avatar.

The Atlantis space shuttle is a good example of the occultists’ love of Atlantis (notice that NASA rockets and space shuttles always have occult-based names).  Also recall the lame tv show “The Man from Atlantis”, starring Patrick Duffy as an “Aquaman” type character.

The Nazis were enthusiasts of the Atlantean “master race” concept, for obvious reasons, as are new age occultists.  The Starbucks logo is very “Atlantean”, since its inhabitants are said to be half-fish and half-human.

The circle within a circle often symbolizes a secret society.  The outer circle is unaware of what the “inner circle” does.  How many circles do you see in the Starbucks logo (not counting the letter “o” or the Register mark)?  I see six.

Circles also symbolize the sun, the egg (fertility), and the female anatomy.

Does the Starbucks mermaid really have two sets of “tailfins” in the logo? Or are those demonic cloven hooves, similar to those that Pan and the devil are usually depicted with?

And are those perhaps two Papal “Fish God” mitres below the occult/communist pentacle on the mermaid’s tiara?  The Papal mitres were also chosen for their resemblance to the female anatomy.  I’m referring to this:

The image to the left is a follower of the Philistine luciferian fish-god Dagon.

And so is the image to the right.

What exactly does “Starbucks” mean, anyway?  I guess that’s what they worship:  “Stars” (occult astrology) and “Bucks” (Mammon, the god of money), with two communist pentacles between “Starbucks” and “Coffee”, the same communist pentacles, by the way, that Wal-Mart and many other corporations now use.

Here is the original 1971 Starbucks logo:

The cloven hooves and the mitre analogies are missing, but she now has bare breasts, and the parted legs analogy is now pretty obvious, no?

51 Scientific Reasons Coffee is Healthy (#49 is Life-Changing)

51 reasons coffee is healthy

Reading Time: 28 minutes, or you can skim and read what is important to you
Learn: 51 reasons coffee is healthy, backed by scientific studies

I am a proud, card-carrying coffee lover. I drink it all the time, often for the caffeine kick but also because I have just grown to love and appreciate the flavor.

Not everyone is with me in the coffee-worshipping department. Most people go back and forth on whether coffee is healthy and if it should be part of their daily diet. The debate is fierce on this topic and it is difficult to know what the facts are. I’m pretty passionate about coffee and have researched it extensively, so I decided to make a comprehensive list of all the benefits of drinking it.

I have thoroughly researched all of the health benefits and implications of drinking coffee. I dove into tons of scientific studies to sort out fact from fiction. Every benefit is backed up by a scientific study.

In this article, I’m NOT talking about those fifty syrup pump venti frappuchinos from Starbucks. I’m talking black, unaltered, pure coffee or espresso. What you do after the coffee is brewed and before it touches your lips is your own prerogative.

Given all of the amazing benefits I discovered, I honestly think coffee should be classified as a SUPERFOOD. Coffee is healthy, beneficial, and delicious and here’s why:

A brilliant go-around, they got us good

By Shepard Ambellas

WASHINGTON D.C. (INTELLIHUB) — Thursday the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted on and approved the end of the Internet as we know it.

That’s right the ‘information superhighway’ has just been obliterated by the passage of “Net Neutrality” which allows the FCC to regulate the once free and independent Internet.

Essentially it’s like putting a person or a checkpoint between point A and point B in which one may eventually have to check in with. Call me a conspiracy theorist but that would be a “gatekeeper” which proponents of the plan promised wouldn’t exist. Although this analogy may seem far-fetched to some, and hasn’t fully manifest itself yet, we will just have to wait and see. But rest assured there will be nothing neutral about Net Neutrality.

The whole “Net Neutrality” thing was made to sound good to everyone as they’ve sugar-coated it [their plan] for the dumbed-down masses, hoodwinking them into accepting it.

When past meets the present

Die-hard radio talk show host Howard Stern and others such as rapper Eminem have went toe-to-toe with the FCC on ‘freedom of speech’ issues and know good and well just how diabolic the FCC can truly be at times. And for that reason people like myself will never trust the FCC as nothing good has ever came from the agency.

The fact of the matter is the agency is only there to regulate information which we can watch, read, and listen to. They want to be the middleman between the content and our brains which will eventually lead to the full-on manipulation of and/or the suppression of information in which they [the powers-that-be] deem we don’t need to know.

And encase you didn’t know yet, as sheep, we are already on a ‘need to know’ basis. It’s the program that our masters have designed for us. They have subconsciously transplanted it into our minds slowly through many years of governmental mind control experimentation sessions. The brunt of it all started with the T.V., but has now morphed into what futurists would describe as an active environment, digitally speaking of course. Where man interacts with machine. They want to control cyberspace period.

Interestingly enough the final rules wont be published for several days which is seen by some as a ‘stall’ that may allow regulators to insert more legal muck; i.e. jargon, into the mix before the passage becomes viable law in just a few short months.

You see, just as Hitler positioned himself and his team above the populace of Germany in the 1930′s, the Obama Administration has done the same — driving the final nail into the proverbial coffin, representing the death of the Internet itself.

Moreover now under Executive Orders and National Security Presidential Directives, such as 51, the President of the United States has powers vested in him to shut off the Internet, which has now been classified as a “utility” under the new regulation, during any “crisis” or “national emergency”.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the kill switch. The Internet kill switch.

You have to admit it was a brilliant go-around.

They got us good.

A letter from the President reads:

Bitcoin Voucher Scheme Bitupcard Expands to 300 Shops in Turkey

The scheme is run by Amsterdam-based bitcoin seller Bit4coin in conjunction with Berlin-based firm MK Payment.

Dolf Diederichsen, CEO at Bit4coin said:

“We are excited with the early success we are seeing in the market. The launch has exceeded our expectations, and we are very happy to quickly expand the reach and make Bitupcard even more accessible to more customers.”

Ibrahim Tarlig, CEO of MK Payment, added: “The market reception has been very positive and many customers told us that they would like to buy Bitupcard e-vouchers, but that the stores were simply too far away from where they lived or worked.”

Turkey’s Invasion Of Syria Shows Turkish Connection To ISIS; NATO Agenda

by Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
Feb 24, 2015

Turkey has now officially proven that Israel and the United States are not the only nations that can brazenly violate the sovereignty of other countries, Syria in particular, without fear of reprisal due to NATO support and a blatant culture of aggression.

The Turkish invasion of Syrian soil on February 22 under the guise of protecting and securing the tomb of Sulayman Shah is case in point.

The tomb is largely recognized as a Turkish exclave since the early 1920s when, in 1921, it was agreed in the Treaty of Ankara that the Turks would be allowed to raise the Turkish flag over the tomb and place a small number of Turkish guards around the mausoleum given that Sulayman Shah bears such significance to Turkish history. The tomb is located about 23 miles from Turkey itself and thus is located inside Syrian territory.

According to mainstream Western press like CNN, the Turks were forced to evacuate the tomb and its contents due to the escalating violence in the area. CNN also reports that the evacuation was led and conducted with the 40 guards stationed around the tomb.

However, the reality is that the tomb evacuation was actually a relatively large military operation involving about 600 Turkish soldiers, 100 tanks, and APCs.

The Turkish military apparently entered Syria via Kobane (Ayn al-Arab).

Yet, while ISIS presence in towns and cities surrounding the tomb was cited as the reason for the evacuation, it should be noted that ISIS, so close to the tomb, never fired one shot at the Turkish military as it conducted its operations. Since, if Western press reports are to be believed, ISIS is the absolute worst strategist when it comes to avoiding unnecessary conflict with nations not necessarily engaged in combat against it, the fact that ISIS forces would allow the Turkish forces to enter its “territory” without so much as even the threat of violence is questionable to say the least.

What is much more believable, however, is that the Turkish forces acted in coordination with ISIS forces so as to justify an essential invasion of Syria and establish a foothold there as the Israelis direct ISIS forces and bomb Syrian territory from the Southwest and Jordan facilitates terrorism from the South. Of course, the U.S., NATO, and its proxy forces in the eastern portions of Syria simultaneously push toward the same center of the country at the same time.

This is not the first time the tomb of Sulayman Shah has been used to justify Turkish military engagement inside Syrian territory.
