James Cameron, the Hollywood producer responsible for blockbuster films like Terminator, Titanic and Avatar, is reportedly preparing to exit stage left. While the move for the Canadian born Cameron may initially be perceived as a rejection or denouncement of American policies and ideals, Cameron, who has made campaign donations to the Democrat Party in the past, most notably during the 2004 Presidential election where he supported democrat John Kerry, may have ulterior motivations, as evidenced by where he’s planning on moving and what he’s planning on doing once he gets there.

From time to time we get a glimpse into the goings on of the well connected. This may be one of those moments:

Cameron has successfully applied to buy 1,067 hectares (2,636 acres) of farmland in New Zealand. In an application filed with the New Zealand Overseas Investment Office, Cameron says he and his family “intend to reside indefinitely in New Zealand and are acquiring the property to reside on and operate as a working farm.”

As we’ve outlined before, farmland is one of the only reasonable physical assets to hold in the event of a major crisis, as you’ll be outside of highly populated metropolitan areas, you’ll have the ability to produce your own food, generate your own energy, and, more so than your urbanite and suburbanite counterparts, stay away from the chaos that will ensue during a major upheaval....

Most Americans would consider the following report to be nothing out of the ordinary. But for those in the know, given what has transpired over the last several years, it raises alarm bells:

Joint military training exercises will be held evenings in downtown Los Angeles through Thursday, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The LAPD will be providing support for the exercises, which will also be held in other portions of the greater Los Angeles area, police said.

Training sites “have been carefully selected to ensure the event does not negatively impact the citizens of Los Angeles and their daily routine,” a department official said.

The training, which a department official said would involve helicopters, has been coordinated with local authorities and owners of the training sites, police said.

Police said safety precautions have been taken to prevent risk to the general public and military personnel involved.

The exercises are closed to the public, police said.

The exercises are designed to ensure the military’s ability to operate in urban environments, prepare forces for upcoming overseas deployments, and meet mandatory training certification requirements, police said.

Urban Survival Post-SHTF: a How-to Guide and Rural Comparison

During a societal collapse or SHTF scenario, is living in an urban environment a safe and prudent option?

Let’s dive into a few of the aspects and dangers of the cityscape, what to expect, and how you might mitigate some of the threat as you either escape from the concrete jungle or try to ride it out.  This does not apply for short, temporary natural disasters; rather, this will examine a potential economic meltdown, long-term survival situation, possible military action, or perhaps an electromagnetic event of some order that brings down the grid.

Living within a major metropolitan area has its ups and down, its benefits and drawbacks. This applies to any decent sized urban area as they all typically have common systems, such as municipal water and sewage, fragile electrical grids that in many cases provide the power for heating your home and cooking, and finally – people.

Large population centers can be your worst nightmare in a survival situation, as witnessed during Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent social collapse that occurred in New Orleans....

Eight Strategic Factors to Consider in 2012

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

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

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

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”

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....

Hayden’s Note and Opinion at the End

For the better part of two decades FEMA detention camps were believed to be a figment of tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorists. As more information over the years has been made available through alternative news researchers, it is becoming increasingly clear that the government has been taking steps for quite some time to ensure a rapid and effective response in the event of a national disaster or U.S. military deployment on American soil.

As many of our readers know, the U.S. Senate recently passed the National Defense Authorization Act, which, it has been argued, authorizes the establishment of domestic war zones and the subsequent detention of those who are suspected of engaging in terrorist-related activity – including U.S. citizens. What you may not know, however, is that just days after the passage of the act reports are surfacing that the Federal Emergency Management Agency, under the auspices of the Department of Homeland Security, is requisitioning private contractors to provide services for government, defense & infrastructure pertaining specifically to FEMA activities with respect to emergency services....

Hayden’s Note:

At the end of this article is a copy of the proposed state sovereignty amendment.

Just following Congress, the 2012 presidential campaign and the inability of citizens to influence government policy makes it clear to every American how broken the US political system has become. A few powerful interests run the entire show and the American people are being forced down a dark road to economic destruction. History shows us that Washington is immune to conventional national political action under the present system. What can freedom loving Americans do?

• We can’t change Washington because Congress is owned and controlled by special interests.

• Neither can we take over the establishment control of either political party as the media elites can break, sideline or ignore any candidate that threatens the elite interests.

• Third party efforts at the national level are doomed to failure and an ineffective tool for promoting freedom principles when compared to the successful Ron Paul campaign effort inside the GOP....

Prepare for Riots in Euro Collapse, British Embassies Warn

Posted on Nov 28, 2011 in Economic News

British embassies in the eurozone have been told to draw up plans to help British expats through the collapse of the single currency, amid new fears for Italy and Spain.

As the Italian government struggled to borrow and Spain considered seeking an international bail-out, British ministers privately warned that the break-up of the euro, once almost unthinkable, is now increasingly plausible.

Diplomats are preparing to help Britons abroad through a banking collapse and even riots arising from the debt crisis.

The Treasury confirmed earlier this month that contingency planning for a collapse is now under way.

A senior minister has now revealed the extent of the Government’s concern, saying that Britain is now planning on the basis that a euro collapse is now just a matter of time.

“It’s in our interests that they keep playing for time because that gives us more time to prepare,” the minister told the Daily Telegraph.

The amount of customer funds missing from accounts at the bankrupt brokerage MF Global “may be as much as $1.2 billion or more,” the trustee overseeing the firm’s liquidation said Monday.

Hayden’s Note:

MF Global.  The Mutha’ F****** Global Collapse.

That would be roughly double previous estimates of about $600 million.

In a statement, trustee James W. Giddens said the estimate is preliminary and “may well change.”

MF Global collapsed while under the leadership of Jon S. Corzine, who was previously governor of New Jersey, a U.S. senator, and the head of Goldman Sachs. MF Global made costly bets on European government bonds.

A variety of federal and industry authorities, including the FBI, have been trying to track down money that should have been kept in customer accounts.

“At present, the Trustee believes that even if he recovers everything that is at US depositories, the apparent shortfall in what MF Global management should have segregated at U.S. depositories may be as much as $1.2 billion or more,” the trustee said in the Monday statement....

Your Monies and Positions Are Not Safe

Denver based Barnhardt Capital Management is a futures brokerage firm that focuses on agriculture, round-the-clock broker access, and inexpensive commissions. At least, it used to be.

Barnhardt shuttered its operations yesterday after six-years in the business. The firm’s founder Ann Barnhardt posted the reasons online for the entire world to see:

“I could no longer tell my clients that their monies and positions were safe in the futures and options markets, because they are not. And this goes not just for my clients, but for every futures and options account in the United States. The entire system has been utterly destroyed by the MF Global collapse.”

This is an excellent article and I recommend that you read it in its entirety.  If you are unsure of what exactly it’s talking about, here are a few beginner articles that may help you understand derivatives and how dangerous they are to our financial existence.  Secondly, I would recommend that you read up on “fractional reserve banking.”

Longtime readers know that I don’t spend much time in the United States; I usually swing by for a month or so each year to visit friends and family, and the period in-between visits can often stretch 6-months or more.

This is sufficiently long enough that I notice a lot of changes… some so drastic that they hit me in the head like a baseball bat.

For example, just last week when I was at Los Angeles International Airport, the police set up a checkpoint outside the main entrance as if we were in downtown Baghdad driving into the Green Zone.

And I couldn’t believe my eyes when, driving down Santa Monica Boulevard last Wednesday, I saw a police urban assault vehicle modeled after a US Army mechanized infantry fighting vehicle. It’s designed for one thing: maximum destruction.

It’s truly appalling how police forces across the country have become militarized. The concept of ‘peace officer’ no longer exists. Police are now paramilitary forces who only protect and serve the political class....

Gaddafi’s Gold-Money Plan Would Have Killed the US Dollar

It remains unclear exactly why or how the Gadhafi regime went from “a model” and an “important ally” to the next target for regime change in a period of just a few years. But after claims of “genocide” as the justification for NATO intervention were disputed by experts, several other theories have been floated.

Oil, of course, has been mentioned frequently — Libya is Africa‘s largest oil producer. But one possible reason in particular for Gadhafi’s fall from grace has gained significant traction among analysts and segments of the non-Western mediacentral banking and the global monetary system.

According to more than a few observers, Gadhafi’s plan to quit selling Libyan oil in U.S. dollars — demanding payment instead in gold-backed “dinars” (a single African currency made from gold) — was the real cause. The regime, sitting on massive amounts of gold, estimated at close to 150 tons, was also pushing other African and Middle Eastern governments to follow suit.

Saddam did the same thing… Invaded and hanged.  ...
