I am the first to admit that I am not psychic and I have no educational advantages that allow me to forecast what our future is going to look like. In fact, this entire undertaking is pure conjecture based upon the reading of hundreds of articles, official papers, and opinions of others. My goal in writing this article is to make the best use of common sense which obviously is pretty uncommon these days. In addition to common sense some of what i relate is based on my own gut feelings.
Yes, I know that there are many people out there spouting off their opinions but if the reader will have some patience and continue to look into the things I relate to you, you may decide it was worth your while
During the time the military was having their Jade Helm 15 exercises in the southwestern United States people from all over the country were reporting, with pictures mind you, that they were witnessing the movement of thousands of military vehicles, tanks, armaments, and equipment by different means such as railway and highway. These movements were obviously unusal based upon the deep concern eyewitnesses had. I am convinced that Operation Jade Helm was a diversion and cover for the tactical placement of all of the military equipment witnessed by the American public.
In other words, the U.S. Military is tactically placing the equipment needed to quell a possible uprising or revolt of the people of the United States or protests and riots on a national scale. There are other telltale signs that have led me to the same conclusion and they are the stockpiling of ammunition by the Department of Homeland Security. One reported estimate was that the billions of rounds of ammo ordered by the D.H.S. were enough to last the length of a 25 year war. The federal government does not make these decisions on ordering ammunition haphazardly. The federal government is definitely preparing for something major.
Another well known fact is that the police departments across the U.S. have been being militarized for quite some time. As witnessed in Ferguson, Missouri during the riots, the police are basically ready for war. The government has been furnishing the police departments with surplus military vehicles and equipment. So, when one considers the military’s tactical placements, the over abundance of ammo ordered by the D.H.S. and the militarization of police departments it’s rather easy to see they are preparing for something. But, what will be the catalyst that activates the need for such extreme and visible preparations? What could possibly get the American people off their couches and away from their electronic pacifiers?
Numerous theories abound in the alternative media but the most visible and probable cause for a national uprising is the breakdown of the economy. For the economy to collapse, one would assume that either the people pulling the financial strings in America and elsewhere are either very stupid of very cunning. If they are stupid they are extremely so for common sense tells us that one cannot owe more than he can earn and be able to pay his debts and that the end result is economic collapse.
I cannot help but think the people pulling the financial strings are cunning. It occurred to me that governments all over the world were giving their sovereignty away as witnessed here in the good ole U.S.A. Let me explain. There was a time in this country where politicians were for or against the United Nations written agenda or parts therein. This is not the case any longer. Our politicians are totally on board with the U.N. Agenda.
You can read their agenda for yourself. Part of their goals is to bring about the equalization of the countries around the world economically. In other words the U.N. wants third world countries to be as well off by having the same standard of living as the more wealthy countries. This procedure has been going on for year’s right under our noses. The trade agreements and laws passed in the last 30 years have caused most of the manufacturing to leave our great country and go overseas.
But here is the crux of the matter; they cannot bring third world countries up to the standard of living enjoyed by Americans. So, what’s the solution? It’s really quite simple, you bring the others countries up as high as you can by providing manufacturing and money infusions while at the same time you bring down those countries that are the envy of the rest of the world.
You are probably asking yourself why anyone would want to do that. The answer can be found in the U.N. Agenda and they call it “Sustainability”. Part of the U.N. Agenda concerns the overpopulation and over use of resources which the U.N. Agenda offers solutions. As an example; From CNN Correspondent Garrick Utley, “As scientists note the arrival of the six billionth human being on the planet, they also are warning that 16 percent of the world’s population is consuming some 80 percent of its natural resources.
That’s the estimated toll the wealthiest populations on the globe — the United States, Europe and Japan — are taking from the earth’s natural bounty to sustain their way of life.
In the U.S. alone, says Emily Matthews of the World Resources Institute, every man, woman and child is responsible for the consumption of about 25 tons of raw materials each year.
Americans, while making up only four percent of the world’s population, operate one third of its automobiles. U.S. citizens consume one quarter of the world’s global energy supply.
Perhaps a more graphic example is that of the lowly quarter-pound hamburger. To produce just one requires 1.2 pounds of grain to feed the cattle, and 100 gallons of water — part of the hidden cost consumers never see. “
You can easily see that in order to bring about an equalization the world’s wealthiest countries will need to be brought low. You may be asking what are the benefits to the main supporters of the U.N. Agenda. The answer is quite simple; control. We all know that he who controls the money controls all. Thus, what we are witnessing in the economies around the globe and more specifically the wealthiest nations is the cunning of those who are the main supporters of the U.N. Agenda. Their cunning is to bring about the demise of the U.S. and other wealthy nations economically.
What does this mean or what will this accomplish?
Those who are the really big proponents and supporters of the United Nations, and bear in mind that with everyone under the thumb of the U.N. we are basically reduced to a one world government, will get what they are after which is control. Let’s take a look at what their goals will accomplish;
The likelihood of either a one world currency or at least a reduced and controlled bucket of currencies. Total control over the money globally. Some speculate it will even be a digital currency doing away with cash in order to control every facet of individual budgeting and expenditures.
Let’s take another look at the U.N. term “sustainability”. To me this implies a reduction and reallocation of human beings. If you study articles published by the U.N. you will better understand this fact. Their stated goals are to move populations in to key cities and bring back the natural state of the environment elsewhere vastly expanding government owned public lands.
While touching on the economy I would like the reader to realize that when there is an economic collapse that the wealth doesn’t just disappear, it transfers by changing hands. The vast majority of people will be wiped out but I can guarantee you that it will benefit the 1%. In a recent article by Michael Snyder he begins with the following fact in question form, “Did you know that 11 trillion dollars in global stock market wealth was wiped out during the third quarter of 2015?”. Most people don’t realize this but it’s true and it’s getting worse.
So to make a preliminary recap of what’s been covered thus far, we have a staged economic collapse of global proportions that will devastate the United States among most others and at the same time we have full blown plans to control the activities of the people of the U.S.
It wasn’t long ago that Barack Obama passed the National Defense Authorization Act called N.D.A.A. I advise the readers to take the time to look it up and read it. The N.D.A.A. basically gives the government the right to do any damned thing they want to. If they want they can take your food supply, your guns, and even your person. They can take you and hold you as long as they wish and can even relocate you. So, all of the preparations have been made to totally destroy the America we used to have. You know, the America that us older people were taught about in school. All one need do is pay attention to the politics in this nation to realize that there is no regard for the Constitution or the Bill of Rights any longer.
In fact we no longer are the great Republic we once were. Instead, we are an Oligarchy. We are now a nation ruled by a small group of elitist who control the money, the corporations, the military and basically everything. It is a tyrannical form of government that over many years crept in unawares to the vast majority of people. While we concentrated on earning a living and playing with our many electronic devices our government was completely overthrown. We placed too much trust in our elected officials who for the most part have been either bought off or had their families threatened to the point that they no longer represented us but instead the Oligarchy.
I could go on about how the Oligarchy control the major banks and how the Federal Reserve Bank is in no way a federal entity but merely a privately owned corporation and I could try and explain the evils of the Federal Reserve Bank and big bankers but all one need do is go back and read the writings and quotes of our founding fathers who repeatedly warned of the evils of the bankers.
There has been a plethora of signs indicating the coming collapse and one reason for that is that the Oligarchy is now so well entrenched that they have become quite brazen. I recall reading a short time ago a legitimate news article that reported the fact that the Treasury Department has ordered over $200,000 worth of Survival Kits for as many as 3,814 employees who oversee the federal banking system. Now, I ask you why bank employees should be getting bug out bags containing survival gear and food rations unless they know something we don’t and are making preparations?
Another interesting fact comes from the website Deagel.com,
I’m not sure what their purpose is exactly but the site lists armaments, weapons, and aircraft purchased by many nations. On the site one can select individual countries showing demographics. The site shows under the U.S.A. our current population (actually it shows 2014) with a population of 319 million people. Deagel.com then shows its forecasts for 2025 which mind you is only 10 short years from now. The 2025 forecast shows a U.S.A. population of 65 million people. If my math is correct that’s almost an 80% population loss in the U.S.
Their homepage states that the site is a “Guide to Military Equipment and Civil Aviation”. I can’t say for sure, but one would think after reviewing the site, that one would have to have some fairly high military connections to possess the information presented on the site.
As for the economy, many highly regarded economist and other well respected business men foresee an economic collapse and or a currency collapse in our near future. Most will tell you that the crash actually was the 2008 markets event and that the fed propped up the economy through bailouts and quantitative easing (Q.E.) or the printing of more money which exploded the amount of debt this country owes. They will tell you that the recovery never happened and that the Fed simply postponed the inevitable major economic crash even making what’s coming exponentially worse.
Practically everything is in a bubble. The bubble that should have burst in 2008 has continued to grow and will burst soon. In the history of civilization every country that used fiat money, not based upon something tangible such as gold, has sooner or later collapsed. There are no exceptions and since the removal of the gold standard we have issued and used fiat money. The bubbles will burst soon.
That brings us to what I see coming as a result of everything I have thus far presented. I would like to give you my vision of the very near future and what you may do about it.
The collapse could possibly happen overnight but then again it could continue to domino over a fairly short period of time. Personally, I think that things will deteriorate over time in more of a controlled fashion but the end result will be devastating. An article in Forbes by Merrill Matthews states, “Obamacare has pushed us over the entitlements tipping point. In 2011 some 49.2 percent of U.S. households received benefits from one or more government programs—about 151 million out of an estimated 306.8 million Americans—according to U.S. Census Bureau data released last October.” Here’s my point, imagine for a moment what will happen when half the population who are receiving entitlements are suddenly cut off. If you think the riots in Ferguson, MO and Baltimore, MD were bad you haven’t seen anything yet.
Another thing we will face in my opinion is a food shortage like the world has never seen. In the next collapse there will be no money to pay employees as we are also in a currency bubble that will burst before long. If employers can’t pay employees then which of you are going to continue to go to work? Besides, would you even take a chance on leaving your family alone while national riots are taking place?

Studies show that when the transport trucks quit bringing food to the grocery stores the store shelves will be empty in three days. Take a moment to think about what food and hygiene provisions you currently have at home and suppose you go to the store during those first three days and buy what you can, how long do you think your family could get by on what you would have? Imagine all of the seniors that currently receive social security checks in order to live.
What do you think will become of them when the government no longer sends them a check? How about the millions of Americans that are dependent upon medication to stay well and that gets cut off too? Then, there are the millions of Americans that work hard to earn a decent living and the situation many of them will be in when they lose their jobs. I foresee there being few jobs and few people willing to leave their homes choosing instead to protect their families. There’s no end to the suffering and violence that is coming.
Eventually, the government will arrive on the scene to save the day by bringing food and water to the cities. They are already establishing the notorious FEMA Camps all over the country. The camps have been built for the sick and needy but more importantly the dissenters and rebels. All you need do is read the documents FEMA has released to understand what I’m telling you. They will have departmentalized secure areas to house all types of Americans. Each camp will have some people working that are experts in psychological operations (psy ops).
These people are there to ascertain the danger one presents and whether or not he or she is part of a larger group, they are there to ascertain the truth from people and more. There will be specific designated areas for all types and everyone will be coded as one type or another. Your personal possessions will be searched and you will be tagged in one of the various categories. They will be tagging people as dangerous/terrorist if you are anti-government, pro-constitution, tea-party affiliated, pro-gun rights etc.
I fully expect for there to be small pockets of resistance to the government scattered around the nation but once there location is determined I suspect they will be snuffed out by superior highly equipped military forces.

It would be a great idea for every person to figure out what it is they want to stand for and be willing to die for. Take the Second Amendment as an example, presently you have the right to purchase or acquire guns for sport, for hunting, and for self-defense. The government is in a constant state of attack on the second amendment in the hope of taking people’s guns away from them. Have you ever really thought about why they want to take our guns away? More people die in traffic accidents than by getting shot and I don’t see politicians trying to take our cars away.
The real reason they want to take our guns away is we would be 100% susceptible to being taken over by a tyrannical government. We couldn’t fight back at the injustice if they possessed guns and we the people didn’t. Once again, if you will read the words of our founding fathers you will see that they foretold all of these things.
The point is, all across America people need to stand up to the tyranny being thrust upon us. We must know beyond a shadow of a doubt what we stand for. We must be willing to defend to the death our rights. Will you let the government come and take your guns away? A lot of great Americans that are normal everyday working class people are willing to give their lives in defense of our rights. Are you willing to die for your beliefs or are you content to be cattle or even worse, sheep in the minds of those who have asserted their authority and overtaken our country. A great man once said, “Give me liberty or give me death!” Are you that great man?
While touching on the subject of patriotism I must insert a fact here. I have wrote of the military and the police being used against the people but I must add that many of these brave men and women will choose not to turn on the population. Many of them will do what’s right and not blindly follow orders. I had to get this fact in.
Sometime after the collapse the government will re-establish themselves and assert their authority under N.D.A.A. There will be a currency reset by establishing a new currency. I am of the opinion that quite a bit of time will pass between the collapse and the reset. By letting this time pass after the collapse and before the government steps in as our savior they will fulfill part of the U.N. Agenda and Deagel.com prediction by letting millions starve to death, die of disease, or get murdered in the mayhem. Population reduction at its finest.
I will try and keep this entire undertaking brief.
Finally, if I were reading this for the first time I would want it to end with some idea of what to do to prepare for what’s coming. I will do just that so bear with me.
If I’m right, and don’t think for a moment that I’m alone in my thoughts, everything will come down to basic survival capability. One of the biggest dilemmas among people preparing for such an event as I foresee is whether to stay in their urban or suburban home or to go to a place of safety they’ve established in the rural areas. Prepper’s as they are called refer to it as whether or not they should bug in or bug out.
Many people say to bug out because they feel it will be much safer than bugging in. The logic behind this is based on the premise that rioting and looting will be rampant so bug out. In some cases I would agree with this premise. If you are in an area that’s highly unstable or easily prone to a riotous situation then by all means get out of there to a safer locale.
Now, if you are in a somewhat safer more suburban area with quite a distance between you and the riots my personal recommendation would be to bug in. The reason for that is there are neighbors/witnesses around you which can be a deterrent to the lawless criminals running around playing havoc on unsuspecting people. If food is at some point brought in for the people it will be brought to the cities. In your present home area you are a familiar face. In a collapse situation traveling from your old location to your new location may be hazardous. Also, I tend to believe that people out in rural areas being cutoff from others and law enforcement as well as witnesses will be prone to criminal elements out to take your supplies at all costs.
So, the choice is yours on whether to bug out or bug in.

At this point I will recommend the things that should receive the highest priority assuming you already have shelter. To begin with one will need water. Without water people die in about three days so water should be the first of the priorities. Assume that there may be no fresh water coming into your home. How will you get fresh water? You need a water source and the ability to purify it.
Secondly, do your best to gather a surplus of important medications. Medications are a must for some so that’s why it earned the second spot in the priorities. You may have to get a little creative to stockpile your meds but my recommendations are to do what you must. If you are not on any dire important medications then the priority would descend down the list a bit. I stock antibiotics which I purchase on eBay. They are fish antibiotics but are pharmacy grade and excellent medications. You will find a variety of antibiotics such as amoxicillin etc. Don’t forget aspirin, acetaminophen, and Ibuprophin. Pain relievers are a necessity.
Third, my personal recommendation is weapons which begin with guns and a lot of ammo. In the collapse I fully expect rampant lawlessness so you should be able to defend yourself and family. I will refrain from supplying the merits of various guns and just say for you to get some. People always want to know how much ammo is enough and no one can give you the answer to that question because it is an unfamiliar event that you haven’t yet experienced so just get all you can afford.
Fourth, you will need a lot of food. Again, I will refrain from telling you what to get in the way of nutrition but I would personally feel better knowing that good people could last six months or more with their food supplies. If that’s not something you can afford then get what you can when you can. In the food category I also include hygiene items. Get all you can. Imagine life with no toilet paper! You better stock up.
Fifth, if you live in an area where cold weather is normal then you will need warmth. Preferably you will have a fireplace or wood stove. You will need an ample amount of wood to burn. Put it this way, you will need everything from proper warm clothing to a heat source. It is likely there will be no power to your home and besides chances are you will have no way to pay for it.
Sixth, knowledge and skills will be of greater importance than many of the survival supplies people are storing. Being raised in the south and having worked on farms and having been an avid hunter and fisherman among other things I carry quite a bit of knowledge. I have studied a wide variety of subjects in my life such as battle tactics, hand to hand combat, martial arts etc and I’ve been a student of people, psychology, history, survivalist knowledge and practice, first aid, and more.
Any skills you have such as carpentry, plumbing, electrical etc is important to possess. Personally I’ve stored a small library of documents on how to do things and I would suggest you do the same. When it comes to knowledge it is highly important you learn all you can about the priorities I’m listing. As an example, my second recommendation of guns and ammo, you should be taking classes and reading everything you can get your hands on as well as practicing how to use your guns and have a general understanding of ammunition.

Seventh, it’s a great idea to possess a variety of survival items. Everything you may need from basic tools to water purification methods. A good knife is a must have as well as a couple of fire starters. Study and see for yourself what you may need and what really proves beneficial. I store small amounts of things like batteries, duct tape, super glue etc. Shopping for this kind of thing can be entertaining.
Eighth on my list of priorities is people. There is strength in numbers. For a while it may be necessary to keep a 24 hour a day watch for approaching criminals. If a group were to attack you it would be beneficial for you to have your own group to defend yourselves. As I said, there is strength in numbers so get yourself a group together of like-minded people with a variety of skills to benefit the group as a whole.

There is a never ending stream of information available to you on the internet. Research for yourself and make your own list of priorities. But, whatever you do get busy now. Time is quickly running out and you need to be prepared.
I would thoroughly love to be entirely wrong in my vision of the near future but I don’t think so. Look at it all like this; we never know when some natural or man made disaster will strike the area we live in and in that event we will have already been prepared both for ourselves and our loved ones.
God Bless America!

7 thoughts on “My Vision of the Probable Future In the United States”
Thomas Jefferson, referencing the 2nd amendment: “The only time you will ever need it, is when they attempt to take it from you.” Good article, and thanks.
An excellent article! I would only add one thing that many fail to consider; that is, a rural bug-in abode in many Northern areas of the United States and Canada will – in a SHTF situation – be plagued by unplowed highways and roads from November through March. This will create both good and bad for those snowed in to their bug-in home; for the well-prepared prepper (he with at least six months of food stored, and a source of water), it will reduce or eliminate the potential for raiders/scavengers over the winter months (except for your immediate neighbors). That’s a good thing.
But snow-clogged roads – in addition to keeping raiders away from your door – also prevent you from getting to a doctor in an emergency. That’s a bad thing.
I’ve been prepping seriously since Y2K and have most of the problems covered, but I can’t overcome unplowed roads. And they’ll remain unplowed until Spring, because those good ‘ole boys who drive those plows will be staying home with the family like all of us.
Excellent point Wiseman. You are aptly named. Thanks!
You are 100% correct taxedn2poverty. I am glad to see that there are other people reading what they can from our forefathers. Thank you!

Very good article. I thought 2008 was going to be the big crash, but they’ve managed to hang on and put even more pressure on the system, too much pressure to recover from gracefully, and the collapse has to occur eventually. Keep prepping!
I’m in total agreement with you Jumbo. They managed to patch the bubble allowing it to grow exponentially and making it’s bursting even more devastating on the general public. Yes, it’s immanent.
