Ever get that sinking feeling? For anyone who has ever been on a boat that was taking on water or someone who had been rudely awakened to a burning house in the middle of the night or perhaps a passenger of a car driven into a lake who watches the water filling in around their feet and rising up past the windows, they can tell you first-hand about the strong urge to escape that accompanies such emergencies. I too have that feeling.
For the past 10 years or more, I have come to the realization that the USA, and on a macro scale, the Western world, if not all the world to some degree, is in a state of emergency on almost every level: financially, environmentally, politically and spiritually.
And like any large vessel, our ‘ship of State’ has not gone down instantly but has foundered in a series of events. This process often happens slowly, quietly, affording time to those with life saving equipment and plans, to escape early before the ship goes down, taking those who did not prepare down with it. This sinking process usually commences in stages. First the vessel loses integrity either by structural failure (often by neglect or from faulty construction/equipment) or it comes in contact with an external body (rocks, boats, torpedos, shore etc.) It is my firm belief that our ship of state in the USA has been hit by a torpedo from a nebulous hidden enemy for their own evil purposes.
Generally, the first people to know about the emergency situation are the crew and Captain. In this case the Federal and State government agencies. Before alerting the passengers, they will first try to assess the threat and address the problem with pumps and emergency equipment to repair or slow the progress of the rushing water inside the hull. Our luxury liner U.S.A. was rocked by the “torpedo” of 9-11 but it wasn’t just the torpedo that has done us in, rather it was the previous years of rot and neglect of the hull from enormous corruption, neglect and misuse that has caused a worse situation than would have been otherwise. Most people are aware that our ship is in a bad state of repair. What they don’t know yet is just how compromised and how desperate the situation really is.
The water is now in the engine room. The economic engines are shutting down. The ship is foundering. The bankers are stripping the paintings off the wall, looting the purser’s safe, stealing the silverware out of the drawers for they know what is coming. The showroom is still putting on plays and movies for the unaware passengers while the Captain and crew are busy preparing their own escape plan yet the general alarm to abandon ship has not gone off! This alarm (six short blasts on the horn followed by one long) is the ‘heads up’ given to the passengers to put on the life jackets and head to the life boats and get ready to abandon ship. Have you heard that signal yet from those in charge? No, you will not here it on ‘Dancing with the Star,’ or ‘American Idol’ and no announcement will be forthcoming on Monday night football.
Currency trade wars, financial collapse, devaluing dollar, rising food prices, the coming hyper stagflation, looming tax increases, war preparations, political scandals and corruption, loss of liberty by design, police-state-style legislation and spying, bogus “war on terror”, talk of civil unrest and riots, depression era unemployment and bank failures, business offshore outsourcing by the thousands, mortgage finance crisis, multi quadrillion derivative bubble ready to pop, looming bond failures, historic deficits and debt, strange weather and environmental changes causing crop failures (etc. etc.)….this and more yet, instead of sounding the alarm, those put in a position of responsibility for the safety of the passengers, (you and me) are telling us that we are in a “recovery” and everything is fine and to relax and enjoy the entertainment! Where is the TV guide anyway…..anyone see the remote?
The water is now past the engine room and heading for the generator room! Are you getting that sinking feeling yet?
For some time now I have had the overwhelming urge to find someplace outside the USA that I could afford. My reasoning is this: Had you lived in Poland in the late 20’s early 30’s and you saw the signs that something bad was going to happen on a national scale, all you would have had to do to escape the horror of WW II Poland was to have secured a place elsewhere, say, Switzerland or the Netherlands for example. Imagine what a difference that move would have made in your life back then!
Sure, there are those today that would call me a “gloom and doomer” or a “conspiracy nut” for thinking that anything near the collapse of the USA is even possible. These people either have forgotten or do not know their history. A careful study of history will show that the ones who are responsible for the events of WW I and WW II are the very ones in charge today. These people and groups / organizations of high finance and political power are globalist in vision. They care not for any one country whether destroyed or saved. They see themselves as a “world citizens” in a global market place. Control is the name of the game and they will stop at nothing to attain ultimate power and control. So what is the USA to these people? To a global bank, we are just one more revenue generator with an unruly population of gun owners. Anyone not for a world government is an enemy of those who are for it.
The USA has been turned into a pariah state thanks to the war-mongering decisions (course) of the “Captain and crew” that has steered the ship of state into dangerous torpedo-filled waters. We have become a target, not because others “hate our freedoms” but because they hate our actions and deeds that has robbed untold trillions, killed millions of innocents and continue to do so in an ever-increasing pace. Who will cry for America when she reaps what she has sewn? Who will come to save us? I think you know the answer.
With this in mind, I looked at properties in central and South America. Although that was my first choice due to location, I have since come to the realization that they will not escape the hardship once things get bad. Their economies depend on the dollar and US trade to survive. Drug gangs, military, corruption and desperate poverty plagues most of these countries. When things get bad, how popular do you think you will be as a “rich American gringo” (or at least quite comfortable) in a foreign Central American country? I don’t know about you, but I don’t want that sort of attention. Look at Mexico for a glimpse of what is to come. Canada is a puppet of the US as well as Australia. Any country actively implementing “terrorist” prevention measures and laws that focus on its own population is to be avoided. The governments of these countries know what is coming and have prepared for and are actively planning the inevitable.
Instead of sounding the alarm, they are slowly locking the gates down in the “steerage class” decks where most of us find ourselves. (Remember the Titanic?)
Recently I stumbled on an ad at www.landbuddy.com , a website dedicated to off-grid living. In the classifieds section, I found an ad for affordable properties on an Island in the Tonga island group in the South Pacific. The property is located on an Island called “Hunga” in the Vava’u island cluster. The lots are about 600 square meters in size and are just under $5,000.00 US each. Try buying a lot in nearby Fiji for that price! True, the land is remote, but that is the point! The lots are raw and unimproved but roads and improvements are being installed. It is an area perfect for those looking to live off the grid. The waters are sheltered and full of fish, the land is raised high above beach level in most cases, and all have a view of the ocean, (something good for investment purposes). The climate is perfect for growing food and the sun shines enough for solar panels to power your lights and refrigeration most of the time. I am in the process of purchasing 2 lots. Want to be my neighbor in “Cocomo Village?” By the way, I am not associated with this project, just a customer.

Like most of my preparations for instance, my stored food, if nothing happens I can simply eat the food. This land purchase is no different. If nothing happens, I can simply sell the land later most likely at a profit although I have plans on retiring on the property because by the time I come of retirement age, I know I will not be able to afford or want to live in the USA. So either way, I plan on using this land in one way or another. To me it doesn’t matter if you purchase land on Hunga island or not. The important thing is to have somewhere to go, have your papers and passport ready and to have planned ahead for what most people think of as an impossible emergency. If you have a “wait and see” attitude, you will inevitably miss out because by the time it becomes evident to you that it’s time to go, everyone else will also wake up! Panic buying will snatch up any remaining property and prices will skyrocket denying most of the opportunity to escape.
Hey, did you just see that? The ships lights just flickered. I wonder what is happening down in the generator room?
