“In a nutshell, it’s the blueprint for Peacetime Martial Law and it gives the president the power to take just about anything deemed necessary for “National Defense”, whatever they decide that is.” (The Intel Hub)

While millions of people have been preparing for the possibility of a catastrophic event by relocating to rural homesteads or farms, as well as stockpiling food, water, personal defense armaments and other essential supplies with the intention of utilizing these preparations if the worst happens, the latest executive order signed by President Obama on March 16, 2012 makes clear that in the event of a nationally deemed emergency all of these resources will fall under the authority of the United States government.

Hayden’s Counterpoint:

While I find this EO to be interesting, and most certainly enjoy the work of Activist Post, Intel Hub, and SHTF Plan, I must agree with Doug Mataconis on this matter:

It all sounds pretty scary, and it wasn’t long before the usual suspects were citing this as evidence of some kind of plan for martial law, just as there were people on the left and far-right in asserting that George Bush was going to declare martial law and cancel the elections in 2004 and 2008.

Americans Will Need Black Markets to Survive

As Americans come to grips with a severe financial hangover, the American economy will adapt to meet the peoples’ needs.  After 30 years of easy credit, subprime mortgages, zero interest loans and binge spending, the economy has imploded.  The wizards of Wall Street continue casting spells and weaving their magic, as the mainstream media rattles on about the wizards’ omnipotence like an rickety player piano.

Meanwhile, back in the world of reality, some Americans are beginning to realize the necessity of more contemporary ways of doing business.  As decreasing wages, increasing taxes, stifling regulations and a mortally wounded economy, are forcing people to do business a different way.  If current conditions continue, “black markets” will emerge, giving local economies an IV to keep them stable.

The global Black Market has already surpassed $1 trillion in sales.  The United States alone already accounts for more than $600 billion, almost three times the nearest competitor- China.  Americans, seeing that the economy for the “99%” still isn’t healthy, are doing an end around to oppressive, financial restraints imposed by the government and Wall Street. ...

‘Plan for an Economic 9/11’: Analysts Warn to Buy Guns and Gold, Expect Market Crash and Street Riots

Just when you thought unemployment was dropping and stock markets were surging back, these three analysts today sent out a stark warning to Americans to brace for another financial crash.

Hayden’s Note:

….And this is a surprise?  I’ve written about this very topic for years now.  It’s painfully obvious to anyone paying attention that there will be another financial crash.  As for when, and the severity, is anyone’s guess.  Investing in tangibles, making long-term preparedness plans, and enjoying life is all you can do at the moment, so why get stressed out about it?

Trend forecaster Gerald Celente advises buying a gun to protect your family, stocking up on gold if the dollar crashes and planning a getaway, so it’s no shock he’s preparing for an ‘economic 9/11’.

Share prices and unemployment are posting their best figures in four years since the recession hit, but Mr Celente, along with authors Harry Dent and Robert Prechter, says the rebound won’t last.

All three were profiled in a USA Today feature on Monday....

Hayden’s Headlines – NDAA Nullification, Trespass Bill, the Price of Water, and the 5 Stages of Collapse

Posted on Feb 29, 2012 in Economic News, Federal Reserve & Bankers, Political Issues

Kevin Hayden –

NDAA Nullification Passes Virginia Senate by a Veto-Proof 39-1 Vote
Today, the Virginia Senate took a firm stand in support of liberty, the Constitution for the United States, and the Constitution of Virginia by voting in favor of House Bill 1160 (HB1160), the “NDAA Nullification Act.”

Goodbye, First Amendment: ‘Trespass Bill’ will make protest illegal
Just when you thought the government couldn’t ruin the First Amendment any further: The House of Representatives approved a bill on Monday that outlaws protests in instances where some government officials are nearby, whether or not you even know it.

More bad news: U.S. water bills to triple
Yet another great reason to get your own piece of land or install a private water well!  I’m about to install a manual water pump out at my shipping container homesteading effort, the Elysian Fields Project.  This will also protect you against a grid-down situation. The ability to provide for yourself is of the utmost importance these days.

Italian Police Seize $6 Trillion of Fake US Treasury Bonds

Posted on Feb 17, 2012 in Economic News, Federal Reserve & Bankers

Italian police said on Friday they had seized about $6 trillion of fake U.S. Treasury bonds in Switzerland, and issued arrest warrants for eight people accused of international fraud and other financial crimes.

Hayden’s Note:

Stop for a minute and just think about what $6 trillion worth of Treasury bonds could do to our Dollar.  And if this was recently “caught,” think about how many forged Treasury Bonds have gone unnoticed?  How long has this been going on?  Who’s directing them?  If these were dumped onto the market, even in a slow, steady trickle, it would kill the US Dollar in short order. 

Hayden’s Note II:

I am doing a lot more research into this tonight and will be providing an update tomorrow on this topic.  This is a deep, deep rabbit hole.  These bonds might have been genuine.

The operation, co-ordinated by prosecutors from the southern Italian city of Potenza, was carried out by Italian and Swiss authorities after a year-long investigation, an Italian police source said.

The fake securities, more than a third of U.S....

The Global Debt Bomb: a Warning Sign for the World

Posted on Feb 15, 2012 in Economic News, Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Federal Reserve & Bankers

Any financial system that is based on debt is doomed to fail.  Today, we are living in the greatest debt bubble that the world has ever seen, and if all of a sudden people could not use credit to buy things, our economy would immediately grind to a halt.  Unfortunately, no debt bubble can last forever.

Hayden’s Note:

Unfortunately?  I’m rather pleased about the fact that we might…just might… be able to allow this debt bubble to burst and start over.  I’m not a fan of over-entending credit.  I’m not a fan of the Federal Reserve.  And I’m certainly not a fan of the insanity that we call modern banking practices.  Let it come crashing down.

When this current debt bubble finally bursts, faith in the financial system is going to disappear, credit is going to freeze up and there is going to be a massive wave of bank failures.  Right now, Greece is a warning sign for the world.  Nobody wants to lend money to Greece, the Greek banking system is dying, one out of every four businesses has already shut down, unemployment is soaring and the Greek economy has now been in recession for five years in a row....

Truth Twisted into Treason – 17 Reasons I Haven’t Filed an Income Tax Return

Posted on Jan 23, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Economic News

Kevin Hayden –

Written by Will Kesler – Truth Contributor

1. Accepting a commission in the USAF, I solemnly swore an oath to God that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic and that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same. Therefore, I have publicly refused to file an income tax return for the past 12 years. If brought before a jury of my peers, the following will be my defense against charges stemming from my decision not to file an income tax return.

2. Mens Rea, or “guilty mind,” is a central distinguishing feature of criminal law. Criminal liability generally requires not only causing a prohibited harm or evil . . . but also a particular state of mind, an act done with a bad purpose or evil intent. Therefore, it is essential to explain my intent in allegedly violating Section 7203 of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC).

  • In fact, during the 12 years I have not filed a return, I published over a dozen columns in the Aspen Daily News, self-published a book, marched in parades, and spent days on the Pitkin County Court House steps.

Eight Strategic Factors to Consider in 2012

Posted on Jan 04, 2012 in Economic News, Global & National News, Police, Military, & War, Political Issues

Kevin Hayden –


Rarely in the past six decades has global context counted for as much in strategic forecasting — trend analysis — as it does at the dawn of 2012. A study of broad contextual factors, including an expanded view of history, will show how cycles and confluences of trends potentially play a greater disruptive role than at any time since the end of World War II.  We have, in recent writings, stressed the longer-term trends and outlook, but it is important to see how the strategic environment is likely to play out during 2012. Equally, it is important that these trends (and others) are seen collectively, and not separately.

These are not wild predictions and guesses but careful analysis put together by the heads of the International Strategic Studies Association who have a global field collection team of some 200 assets in many countries.

Some of the topics covered in the short report are:

    1. Global Economic and Financial Trends:
    2. Global Energy Supply and Demand:
    3. Strategic Recovery by the US
    4. EU/Eurozone Prospects

Peter Schiff Animation: We’re Not Paying the Chinese Back

Posted on Jan 04, 2012 in Economic News, Federal Reserve & Bankers

Kevin Hayden –

This is a part of a speech made by Peter Schiff, entitled “Why the Meltdown Should Have Surprised No One” at the Ludwig von Mises Institute in 2009.

Peter Schiff is widely credited for having predicted the housing collapse and economic downturn in advance.  He is an investment broker, author and financial commentator. Schiff is CEO and chief global strategist of Euro Pacific Capital Inc. and CEO of Euro Pacific Precious Metals, LLC, a gold and silver dealer based in New York City.

I highly recommend this insightful, easy-to-understand, and at times, humorous animation.  Created by DSBac.

UBS’ Advice on What to Buy in Case of Eurozone Breakup: “Precious Metals, Tinned Goods, Small Caliber Weapons” Thumbnail

UBS’ Advice on What to Buy in Case of Eurozone Breakup: “Precious Metals, Tinned Goods, Small Caliber Weapons”

Posted on Dec 08, 2011 in Economic News, Emergency Preparedness & Survival

Kevin Hayden –

Source: Zero Hedge

Three months ago, Zero Hedge presented the first of many narratives that started the thread of explaining the “unmitigated disaster” that would ensue should the Euro break up, which in the words of authors Stephane Deo and Larry Hatheway, would leads to such mutually assured destruction outcomes as complete bank failure and/or civil war, or far worse.

Because if there is one thing the banks have learned in the aftermath of Hank Paulson, is that scaremongering when bonuses are at stake is the only to get taxpayer money to fund exorbitant lifestyles. Unfortunately, since the first UBS report, despite the best intentions of the status quo, the Eurozone’s plight has only gotten far, far worse, reaching a Lehman-like crescendo when the house of cards threatened to collapse if not for a last minute Fed rescue. However, as Deutsche Bank and every other bank knows well, that measure was merely a short-term fix.

Today, Larry Hataway has released yet another sequel to the original piece, focusing on this so very critical week for Europe, which as Olli Rehn said, must find a solution by Friday or see the EU “disintegrate”, in which the vivid imagery, loud warnings and level of destruction are even greater than before....
