This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. There was a time when preppers were relentlessly mocked, but nobody is laughing now. Today, most Americans are thinking about stockpiling food, and this massive shift in our national mindset has been sparked by concern about what is going to happen in the months ahead. Many Americans believe that another wave of the coronavirus pandemic is coming, others believe that our ongoing economic depression will get even deeper, and yet others are convinced that the upcoming election could produce widespread violence. Of course, there have always been people that have been deeply alarmed about future events, but we have never seen anything quite like this. In fact, a brand new survey has found that over half of all Americans are currently planning “to stockpile food and other essentials”… Slightly more than half of Americans in a recent poll from Sports and Leisure Research Group say they already have or plan to stockpile food and other essentials. The chief reason: fears of a resurgent pandemic, which could lead to disruptions such as new restrictions on businesses. On Oct. 2, the number of COVID-19 cases in the USA was its highest in almost two months. People still remember the shortages that we witnessed earlier this year when the coronavirus pandemic first erupted in this country, and those that ended up being stuck at home without enough toilet paper would rather not repeat that experience. So as the mainstream media continues to hype a new wave of the pandemic, we should expect to see Americans hitting the grocery stores really hard. And according to data company Envestnet Yodlee, there is evidence that this is already happening… Already, there’s some evidence that grocery sales are rising, according to data from industry sources. The typical bill for a trip to the grocery store rose to $72 for the week ended October 6, or 11% higher from the week before, according to data company Envestnet Yodlee. “That’s the highest we’ve seen since the first week of June and the second-highest since we started tracking this in January,” said Bill Parsons, group president of data and analytics at Evestnet. Fortunately, many grocery store chains anticipated a spike in demand in advance and started stocking up ahead of time. The following comes from CNN… Grocery stores across the United States are stocking up on products to avoid shortages during a second wave of coronavirus. Household products — including paper towels and Clorox wipes — have been difficult to find at times during the pandemic, and if grocery stores aren’t stocked up and prepared for second wave this winter, runs on products and shortages could happen again. During a time when other retailers all over the nation are failing at a pace that we have never seen before, many grocery store chains are actually experiencing booming sales. And of course I have been warning that this would eventually happen for a very long time. During a time of crisis, demand for food and other essentials tends to go up and demand for non-essential items tends to go down. Needless to say, this is something that is not just happening in the United States. All over the world, we have seen demand for food on the rise, and this comes at a time when global food production has become increasingly stressed. As a result, food prices all over the world are starting to escalate quite aggressively… Food prices continue rising during the coronavirus pandemic, jeopardizing food security for tens of millions worldwide. On Thursday, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations said world food prices rose for the fourth consecutive month in September, led by surging prices for cereals and vegetable oils, reported Reuters. FAO’s food price index, which tracks the international prices of the top traded food commodities (cereals, oilseeds, dairy products, meat, and sugar), averaged 97.9 in September versus a downwardly revised 95.9 in August. Sadly, this is just the beginning. Global food supplies will continue to get even tighter, and global demand for food will just continue to shoot higher. So I would stock up while you still can because prices will never be lower than they are right now. Meanwhile, our society continues to unravel right in front of our eyes. You would think that the Lakers winning the NBA title would be a time to celebrate for the city of Los Angeles, but instead, large crowds of young people used it as an opportunity to riot and attack police officers… A crowd of more than 1,000 revelers descended into the area around Staples Center after the game. Unruly individuals mixed within the crowd began throwing glass bottles, rocks, and other projectiles at officers. That is when an unlawful assembly was declared, and only a limited number of people complied and began to disperse. A larger portion of the group broke off and began vandalizing businesses while continuing to engage in violent behavior, some aimed at responding officers. In Portland, protesters just toppled statues of Teddy Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln during a “day of rage”, but the mainstream media didn’t seem to think that this was any sort of a problem. And in the middle of the country, the violence never seems to stop in the city of Chicago… Five people were killed and 48 others were injured by gunfire this weekend in Chicago. Five of those wounded were teenagers. Last weekend saw 37 people shot throughout the city, five of them fatally. Of course, things could soon get a whole lot worse. According to one recent survey, 56 percent of all Americans expect “an increase in violence as a result of the election”. Isn’t that incredibly sad? Many are still hoping that such a scenario can be avoided if one of the candidates is able to build an extremely large lead on election night. A large enough lead could potentially cause the candidate that is behind to concede fairly quickly, and that may ease tensions. But I wouldn’t count on that. At this point, we are about 500 hours away from the election, and both sides are indicating that they are prepared to fight until the bitter end. And the side that ultimately ends up losing is likely to throw a massive temper tantrum, and that won’t be good for our country at all. So it makes sense that so many Americans are making extra preparations for the months that are ahead because it definitely appears that they could be quite rocky. ***Michael’s new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon.*** About the Author: My name is Michael Snyder and my brand new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available on Amazon.com.

Mac SlavoOctober 6th, 2020SHTFplan.com This election is filling voters with a sense of dread. Many feel that the entire election is going to be “hell” no matter how they vote, or who wins. Politics in the United States has been divisive for a long time but never has the country been more divided than it is today and closing that gap seems impossible. Americans who participate in national surveys have said this election “matters” but it’ll also be “hell” regardless. The highest share of Americans in decades, more than 4 in 5, believe the outcome of the election “really matters,” according to a report by the Chicago Tribune. Based on the predictive programming being done by the mainstream media, we should all be expecting something horrific surrounding this election. It really won’t much matter who wins this time, because it’s the aftermath that we need to be concerned with. Manipulating The Masses: Edward Bernays & Why The System Needs Your Compliance A secret model was already conducted and it has shown what will be the most destructive and chaotic outcome. If they choose to go that route, Trump will win the electoral college and Biden will win the popular vote. However, it won’t much matter at this point, as neither side will accept the other side’s win. More Evidence: The Plan Is To Commit “Election Terrorism” This November Three (3) Reasons Why Elections Don’t Matter One voter from Erie Pennsylvania reportedly said “[this election] is going to be hell no matter what.” Politico is reporting that Joe Biden is looking like he’s “sealed” the election after “Trump’s week from hell,” alleging the coronavirus was more devastating to Trump’s health than was the reality. Anyone paying attention knows that the coronavirus is not that severe and a positive test doesn’t necessarily mean there was a positive case, as the tests are highly innaccurate. With this planned chaos, the best thing you can do to prepare is to make sure you have enough food and water to get you through this winter, and stay alert. You need to know what’s going on without falling victim to the mess they are creating. Don’t live in fear, but stay alert and watch for what could come.

Mac SlavoSeptember 24th, 2020SHTFplan.com Josh Sigurdson recently spoke with James Corbett of The Corbett Report about the heightened level of tyranny throughout the world creating a prison planet over the course of 2020. With the excuse of an illness, the governments of the world have managed to use a crisis to their extreme benefit and to the absolute enslavement of the public. Was this COVID-19 thing created in a lab? At this point, it honestly doesn’t even matter. Regardless of whether it was or was not, how’s it being used against the public? What is the ultimate end game? James digs deep into the technocratic global government being created, influenced heavily by China, and utilizing the crisis to install social credit tied to bank accounts. This is THE ONE LAST battle for humanity as James points out. This is extraordinarily important and cannot be disregarded. With social credit scores tied to medical tyranny, if we don’t act now, we may be done forever. Time is running out. This is it. Your time to figure out what’s going on is very limited. More chaos is incoming. We’ve already been promised the “darkest Winter” and a contested chaotic election. If you want to know the future if the New World Order is successful, look no further than China. That’s the goal. Social credit and medical tyranny. As Corbett says, there is no “fixing” the system from inside the system. If that was possible, we wouldn’t be in this situation as Donald Trump promised he’d take down the “deep state.” We are far more enslaved now than we have ever been. So Trump either lied, has no power to take down the deep state, or is in on the plan to roll out the New World Order. Either way, none of those are going to sit well with half the voters, but truth fears no scrutiny. These are the technological tools of enslavement and trump is pushing them. This video is incredibly powerful, and as both Corbett and Sigurdson say, the time for education is in the past. If you don’t get what’s happening by now, you may not ever get it. If we start messing with the human genome and lose bodily autonomy (vaccine coercion) and refuse to wean ourselves off this horrific system of enslavement, humanity could be doomed. Our decisions will dictate our future. President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve! He wants zero rates and QE4!

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. If you are deeply concerned about what is going to happen in November, you are definitely not alone. Experts on both sides of the political spectrum have been warning that it is very likely that we will not know the winner of the presidential election until well after November 3rd, and everyone pretty much agrees that the period of uncertainly that we will be forced to endure will not be good for our nation. Those of us that are old enough clearly remember the pain that the election of 2000 caused. The outcome hinged on the results from the state of Florida, and the endless recounts were finally brought to a conclusion after 36 very stressful days with George W. Bush up by just 537 votes. Unfortunately, some are saying that we are potentially facing “the 2000 election on steroids” because vote counting will be going on in multiple swing states long after election night is over. The big reason why this election is going to be so different from previous elections is because so many Americans are going to be voting by mail. According to one recent survey, a whopping 37 percent of all voters plan to cast their votes by mail this time around… Thirty-seven percent of registered voters said they are likely to vote by mail in the November election, by receiving a mailed ballot and either mailing it back or returning it in person, according to a new survey released Tuesday by the Democracy Fund + UCLA Nationscape project. Other estimates put the number as high as 40 percent, and it could go even higher than that because some states are promoting mail-in voting extremely aggressively. In fact, as I detailed yesterday, one of my readers told me that he and his wife “have received three requests each for mail-in ballots” over the past five weeks. We are also being told that Democrats are far more likely to vote by mail than Republicans are. According to the same survey that I quoted above, supporters of Biden are more than twice as likely to vote by mail than Trump supporters are… Among them, 48% of voters who plan to vote for Democratic presumptive nominee Joe Biden said they are likely to vote by mail, according to the survey. That’s more than twice the 23% of voters backing President Donald Trump who said they are likely to vote by mail. It takes a lot of time to open and count ballots that have been mailed in. If that work could be done in advance, that wouldn’t be that much of a problem. Unfortunately, there are 14 states where it is prohibited by law to count mail-in ballots before Election Day, and that includes some of our most important swing states… Tens of millions of Americans will try to vote by mail because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But officials in 14 states are prohibited from processing mail-in ballots until Election Day; counting them could take days or weeks. Those states include Pennsylvania and Michigan, battlegrounds that could decide the election. It should deeply alarm all of us to hear that it “could take days or weeks” for some of these states to finally count every single ballot. And that is just the first count. I am not even talking about any potential recounts. At this point, many Democrats are warning of a possible “red mirage” on the night of the election. Many of them believe that it will look like President Trump is winning on election night, but that Joe Biden will ultimately win once all of the mail-in votes are finally counted. As evidence, they point to the fact that there has been a “blue shift” in all national elections going back to 2004… Since 2004, mail-in ballots have been disproportionately Democratic, a phenomenon known as the “blue shift.” So, barring a landslide, we could see a “red mirage” on Nov. 3, an election-night count of in-person votes that suggests that Trump has won — even though millions of votes for Biden are waiting to be tabulated. Personally, I do believe that it is very likely that President Trump will be leading on the night of the election, but what is really going to matter is what happens during the days that follow. If a Trump lead evaporates and Biden is eventually declared the winner, there will be widespread allegations that the election was stolen, and that could cause tremendous explosions of anger. And the big tech companies are already preparing for post-election chaos. In fact, Facebook has openly announced that they will purposely “restrict the circulation of content” in order to try to control civil unrest… Facebook announced this week that it may restrict certain aspects of its platform following November’s general election as part of a larger effort to limit social unrest. A spokesperson for Facebook suggested that executives including Sheryl Sandberg and Mark Zuckerberg may censor specific information if they believe it is likely to heighten political tensions following the election. According to a report by the Financial Times, Facebook announced this week that it will “restrict the circulation of content” following November’s election to curb violence and social unrest. The announcement follows efforts by Facebook to address concerns from those who have alleged that the platform aids in voter suppression and promotes election-misinformation. What is this country going to look like if it takes weeks or even months to officially declare a winner? No matter who ends up winning, I believe that the process is so flawed that it is going to tear the country apart. And no matter what the final result is, a large percentage of the population will never accept the outcome as being legitimate. This is already one of the most difficult chapters in U.S. history, and a bitterly contested election result will only make things even worse. At this point, even the mainstream media is admitting that we are heading into “wild” times. The following comes from CNN… Ask anyone about the next six weeks and they will likely give you some version of this as a response: Whoa boy. It is going to be wild. Which it is! The last 42 days of a presidential election are always filled with unpredictable storylines, big moments and, more than anything, uncertainty. Just about the only way that we can avoid the type of scenario that I have described is if there is an overwhelming landslide on election night. Wouldn’t that be nice if that actually happened? It would be wonderful if one of the candidates conceded on November 3rd or November 4th and we could avoid weeks or even months of endless national strife, but I don’t think that is going to happen. Instead, I believe that both sides are going to fight to the bitter end, and the end will definitely be very bitter indeed. ***Michael’s new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon.com.*** About the Author: My name is Michael Snyder and my brand new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available on Amazon.com.

Mac SlavoSeptember 16th, 2020SHTFplan.com The central bank of the United States, the same one that creates dollars out of thin air, is “fighting the last battle.” Things are going to get a lot worse, and it’s all by design. The goal is a full control centralized dollar and dependence on the system for a universal basic income. In other words, complete slavery is the ultimate final goal of the New World Order. The central banks are in control right now, the dollar is collapsing, and this is all being done on purpose. The Fed won’t be changing anything dramatically with regards to their monetary policy, and if you already know what the end game is, you know this. The “last battle” they are fighting now is for ultimate control over every single transaction of all human beings. Interest rates will be allowed to drop even further and the dollar will be destroyed all while Americans continue to struggle to put food on the table and the corporations get ridiculously wealthy. Last night, Greg Mannarino uploaded his “Market Wrap Up” and tried to remind those listening of what is really going on. “They are on a mission to own it all,” says Mannarino of the Fed’s ultimate plans. “They’re gonna buy more debt, they’re gonna issue more debt, and they’re gonna melt the dollar…nothing is gonna change here. The goal of these central banks is to inflate massively. Debts and deficits are going to balloon.” Mannarino continued, saying: “It’s pretty obvious and it should be to anyone that things are going to get monumentally worse by design...it’s all a scam. This entire thing is a charade, it’s fake.” The United States alone has Great Depression levels of unemployment, half (or more) of small businesses are gone for good, never to return, meanwhile, Wall Street executives are ettin the biggest bonuses in history this year.

This article was contributed by Lior Gantz of The Wealth Research Group. Gold is currently trading for JUST UNDER $2,000/ounce and Wall Street firms have issued PRICE TARGETS of $2,500 and $3,000. But I want to also present the INVERSE CASE since it’s important to understand that (1) commodities don’t go up in a straight line and that (2) NO ONE knows what the future holds. We’re not predicting gold crashing, but we are DEFINITELY raising the point that gold is enjoying its best year since 2010 and that silver has SURGED BY 150% since March! Therefore, my goal today is to ENSURE that you’re aware of the roadblocks ahead since gold might test the $1,900/ounce mark and silver may CRASH BY $2 or $3 in AN INSTANT before they both eventually RAISE HELL and hit new highs! The best way to hedge this is to have cash LINED UP in case commodity prices fall so that one could buy more ounces, while he takes profits on miners now, BOOKING GAINS. Courtesy: ZeroHedge.com As you can see, REAL YIELDS might have bottomed and, IF THAT’S THE CASE, gold and silver might have peaked for the time being (2-4 months). There are TWO SURPRISES that can tilt the odds back in precious metals’ favor, THOUGH: (A) the upcoming elections and (B) INFLATION overshooting. You can position for both of these AT THE SAME TIME, thus creating proper diversification in your portfolio. The way to do that is to HAVE EXPOSURE to the comeback stocks, the dominators in the industries that Covid-19 has disrupted most. The reason for this is that if these sectors go back to normal, gold’s USE-CASE as a chaos hedge is diminished, but SILVER’S ROLE as an industrial metal is heightened! We are about to release our CORONAVIRUS VICTIM COMEBACK Watchlist and if it’s as good as our previous three watchlists, HUGE RETURNS are in store. There’s a boatload of LIQUID CASH on the sidelines, so just understand that with 300 out of the 500 companies on the index DOWN IN 2020, it is the index that is overvalued, but not the components of it. Basically, 10 companies have pulled it up, while 300 are holding it back. Another reason we anticipate SURPRISE INFLATION is the boom in residential real estate. If REAL RATES have bottomed, many mortgage applicants will begin TO RUSH into the market, anticipating higher interest payments in the YEARS AHEAD. That’s money-multiplier velocity, which is REALLY GOOD for commodities as well. As you can see above, while millennials have pounded prices up for TSLA shares and other “story” companies, the professionally-managed funds are NOT BULLISH yet, so we like real estate right now. Courtesy: Zerohedge.com Lastly, I want to address the topic of CORRECTIONS and PULLBACKS. Yesterday, I put Virtual Reality goggles on and simulated an F-16 flight, which included throttling ALL THE WAY forward and then BRAKING HARD a couple of seconds afterward, in order to INCREASE RESULTS. That’s what I believe is happening right now; every pullback shows you where SUPPORT IS. Getting shaken out is easy; staying LONG is hard. We’re in a bull market for equities, real estate, precious metals, and Bitcoin; CASH IS TRASH! President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve! He wants zero rates and QE4!
