We are coming up on the 3 year anniversary of the 2008 financial crisis. The economy has not improved. The unemployment payments, for most, have run out. People’s safety nets are destroyed. Housing is collapsing again. Inflation is ravaging what is left of our money. Now we are seeing a rash of violence all over the country, Miami, Myrtle Beach, Rochester, Long Beach, Charlotte, Nashville, Chicago, and Boston. All of this while things are still working. What is going to happen when the dollar collapses?
I have had a bunch of Strategy Sessions with members that have about their physical safety. Some are looking for international changes, most are simply trying to move out of urban areas. Many are asking about personal protection steps they should take. There are many things to consider and I am glad to see that people are thinking about this issue. It is unrealistic to think that you are going to be able to defend your property for any significant amount of time against a hoard of desperate people. Most homes are simply not able to withstand fire much less gunfire. This situation becomes even more untenable in a urban environment. I highly recommend that if you live in a urban area, get out now!
The last place I would want to be is in a multicultural, densely packed, urban area with huge wealth disparities when the dollar collapses. When the dollar collapses, food and fuel will become scarce and people will become desperate. We have seen riots in the past, but let me assure you that you have not seen anything yet. I remember the Rodney King riots and this collapse will make that look like child’s play. Those riots were over some verdicts on a few men, the dollar collapse is a verdict on all of us. The shock of abject poverty and sudden desperation, will bring out the worst in people. The police will be overwhelmed at a time when their paychecks stop or don’t buy anything and their pensions wiped clean. Those officers will not risk their lives out on the street trying to save some failed system. They will be at home defending their families or simply getting out of dodge. Leaving all of those left behind to fend for themselves.
Those areas that are most dependent on the dollar paradigm, will be the worst places when the dollar collapses. I have a good friend that lives in Southern California. I have told him that out of all of the places in America I would not want to be in when this happens, is Southern California. A 20 million strong multicultural population packed into an area that does not have a lot of water, millions of illegals, and huge wealth disparities. Urban areas only work, when the dollar works. Our power grid is extremely vulnerable. Penthouses in New York will become deathtraps if the power goes out and food and fuel stop moving in.
Most people have only a few days of food to exist on, and if the water gets shut, less than that for water. What is also not very well known, and very dangerous, is that we have 1/10th of the population is on anti-depressants. If people don’t get their pills, and come off too fast, they will suffer psychological breaks at a time when their real world is falling apart. It seems every school shooting or mother drowning her kids, are from people who stopped taking their meds. I would be willing to bet that the use of these kinds of drugs are significantly higher in urban areas than rural areas. This fact is only going to compound the problem in a world already gone mad.
Throw on top of this social unrest, the inevitable political unrest. Americans now watch hundreds of thousands in Egypt, Greece and Spain march against governments and bankers. This will come to America, and I believe it will be much, much worse. America is a very violent, aggressive culture now. There is going to be a lot of outrage as America goes from the Denial Stage to the Anger Stage. I believe that this violent period will only last 3 to 6 months after the dollar collapse. The violence will burn itself out and many people will die. Those that are wise, will be far away from danger, instead of tempting fate.

May’s biggest busybodies are taking it to poker players and teen tanners, but the nation’s top nag has lovers of pink-in-the-middle burgers seeing red.
In a stunning blow to all that is juicy and delicious, the Tar Heel state actually prohibits restaurants from serving rare or medium-rare hamburgers.
And if this crime against meat freedom seems especially un-American, keep in mind that it comes from the same state that once banned Old Glory at public rallies. http://www.youtube.com/user/ReasonTV#p/c/2DD00E99B83A258A/12/XBP_deuQzwE

ED NOTE: Like Newt, and Pawlenty, Rudy Ghouliani, John Huntsman, (and Bush McCain 08) – Golden Boy Christie seems to have a major problem on “Global Warming” – We at DEADLINELIVE.INFO do believe that there is “Climate Change” – BUT and this but is as Big as Gov Christie’s hind end… ‘Man Made’ is much more likely due to Geo Engineering, and ‘Weather Modification’ than it is due to my existence IE: Carbon is Peeeeeeple.
Depopulation, Carbon Tax, Life Laws, carbon (Toxic) Derivatives, and absurd regulations (always selectively enforced BTW) are NOT solutions… They are a Death Sentence.

Christie is NJ’s Al Gore? Only met with alarmist scientists! Duped over Sea Level — Refused Skeptical Scientists?!
Morano: 'Christie did not respond to multiple meeting offerings from top scientists in New Jersey, but meets with a collection of alarmists scientists. He is following in the misguided footsteps of George W. Bush on climate. Christie is attempting to pursue the discredited strategy of accepting the alleged science of anthropogenic AGW while rejecting so called solutions'
Christie has no clue what he is talking about: Flashback: Climate Con: 97% 'consensus' claims exposed! Only 75 anonymous scientists are behind the media's 97% of scientists 'agree' claims! -- More on 90% consensus claims here.
Flashback 2009: Will Happer Tells Congress: Earth in 'CO2 Famine' -- 'The increase of CO2 is not a cause for alarm and will be good for mankind' -- 'Children should not be force-fed propaganda, masquerading as science'
'Christie needs to show that [converstion to warmist] was a one-off mistake in judgment and correct it immediately’
Christie’s Key Climate advisor Prof. Ken Miller’s sea level predictions ‘are far outside range of UN IPCC estimates & measured data’ — ‘Europe’s Envisat satellite shows sea level rising at only 3 inches per century, and that sea level is lower now than when they started measuring 8 years ago…Tide gauges in NJ indicate less than a foot of ‘sea level rise’ will occur this century and most of this is due to the land sinking rather than sea level rising’
WSJ: ‘Christie might have felt he needed cover for such a controversial decision. Then again, his supporters have come to admire him precisely because he doesn’t usually run for cover’
Christie’s presidential hopes go poof: ‘When you have over 90% of the world’s scientists who have studied this stating that climate change is occurring and that humans play a contributing role, it’s time to defer to the experts’
Ken Miller: firstname.lastname@example.org
Reality Check on Prof. Miller: ‘His comparisons may be off by two orders of magnitude, but that doesn’t mean Gov. Christie shouldn’t listen to him’
Warmist Newspaper: ‘If you hear shrieks of horror from environmentalists over the next few days, advise them to take a pill. The economic slowdown and the sharp drop in natural gas prices have already reduced emissions beyond expectations…Ideally, Christie would have stuck with the treaty for its political symbolism’
Robock’s lusty meeting with Castro: I stayed at ‘nicest hotel…I went in a black Mercedes…I went to private meeting with Fidel & his family…we had photo taken together…[then went in] even fancier Mercedes… this was all very surreal…I went to night club show with lots of dancers…presented me with a ‘distinguished guest’…my name engraved (‘loyalty award’)…Then to one of fanciest restaurants…One of the joys of going to Cuba is seeing the old American cars’
Christie met with climate alarmists ‘recommended by the New Jersey Environmental Federation’
Welcome to scientific reality Newt! Gingrich: ‘Climate change is the newest excuse to take control of lives and you want a new bureaucracy to run our lives on behalf of the newest thing. But remember, in the mid-1970′s there was a cover of Newsweek and Time that says we’re in the age of a brand new glacial period and they had a cover of the Earth covered in ice. Now many of those scientists are still alive and they were absolutely convinced’
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that former Attorney General John Ashcroft cannot be sued personally over his role in the post-Sept. 11, 2001, arrest of an American Muslim who was never charged with a crime.
By a 5-3 vote, the court said Ashcroft did not violate the constitutional rights of Abdullah al-Kidd, who was arrested in 2003 under a federal law intended to make sure witnesses testify in criminal proceedings.
Al-Kidd claimed in a federal lawsuit that the arrest and detention violated the Fourth Amendment’s prohibition of unreasonable searches and seizures.
He was held for 16 days, during which he was strip-searched repeatedly, left naked in a jail cell and shower for more than 90 minutes in view of other men and women, routinely transported in handcuffs and leg irons, and kept with people who had been convicted of violent crimes.
Meet the New Boss – Same as the Old Boss
5/2/2011 – Governor Lincoln Chafee has announced that he will put an indefinite hold on the state’s three medical marijuana dispensaries from opening after receiving a threatening letter from US Attorney Peter Neronha on April 29th.
May 2, 2011
Statement from Governor Lincoln D. Chafee Regarding Compassion Centers
The United States Attorney for the District of Rhode Island delivered a letter to me on Friday afternoon which was copied to the Director of the Department of Health and the three Compassion Center applicants. That letter, as well as similar letters sent to officials in other states, clarified the Department of Justice’s position on medical marijuana. The Department of Justice previously indicated that it would not focus its limited resources on doctors and their sick patients who prescribe and use marijuana if such use was permitted by state law. This position was interpreted by some states as giving them latitude to authorize medical marijuana cultivation and distribution programs. Friday’s letter makes it clear that DOJ will now pursue certain commercial cultivation and distribution of medical marijuana, even if such cultivation and distribution is permitted by state law. Compassion centers, their owners, landlords, financiers and other operations “facilitators” are identified as potential targets of federal law enforcement activities.
None of Rhode Island’s compassion center applicants have received a certificate of registration to date. In light of the United States Attorney’s articulated position on closing compassion centers, seizing proceeds and prosecuting business enterprises that market and sell medical marijuana, I have placed a hold on the State’s medical marijuana certificate of registration program. During this hiatus, I will be consulting with the governors of other states with similar medical marijuana programs, with federal officials and with the compassion center applicants themselves.
Several governors have recently alluded to a planned meeting on the medical marijuana issue. The National Governors Association is the official body of these elected officials. NGA is currently led by Governor Christine Gregoire of Washington. DOJ also sent a letter to Gregoire, that action prompted her to veto parts of a new law that would have regulated medical cannabis dispensaries.

I have a pretty high tolerance for screaming Neo Libs, but the crew over at GE never fails to make me consider canceling my cable. From ADMITTED Socialist and gun grabber Larry O’bamaDonnell – to Fabian (Rhodes Scholar) Rachel Mad Cow, and of course Mr race card himself Chris (Obama gives me a “tingle” down my leg) Matthews…… The phony Left vs Right, Establishment Dems can do no wrong; partisan hack attacks on good men like Rand Paul seem more worthy of Moveon.org or some other Soros / Carnegie Mellon, Rockefeller, or Ford Foundation vehicle, than on a major cable “news” station in the USA.
First Keith O’bamamann went down after it was revealed that he was contributing to the campaign of Rand Paul’s opponent Trey Grayson, all the while bashing Sen Paul and using his position and MS-GE to lie, distort, and cover. Victory!
Now Mr Ed seems to be in hot water.
Not from the evil conservatives (All of whom are portrayed as racist, know nothings, and killers of the elderly and the poor…) No. The attacks are coming from Ed’s “base”. Those who count themselves as REAL Liberals who are anti torture, assassination, police state, and war.
Those REAL Americans who might disagree with you and I, but whom also disagree with the Bush / Cheney like behavior of Cousin Barry O’bama.
Ed Shultz, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, and Larry O’Donnell are perfect examples of how there really is not a whit of difference between Neo Cons and Neo Libs. Like wise… It could be said that there is little difference between Paleo Cons (Libertarians) and Paleo Libs (REAL Progressives) So can’t WE get along? Likely because of divisive disruptors like Shultz, Maddow, O’Donnell, and (alleged “moderate” Matthews!
And YES I have similar problems with Hannity, O’Rielly, and Beck.
Like building 7 on Sept 11th… MSNBC-GE-Comcast seems to be imploding from within. Could this be a prelude to 2012?
Salon.com is one of the leaders in this merciless take down of warmongering, establishment frenching Neo Libs like Mr Ed Shultz (himself a former Neo Con) – Here are just a few examples, and proof of why we think that Mr Ed’s days on my TV are numbered:
The most reliable Democratic partisan on television used to be the Rush Limbaugh of the Great Plains
When the U.S. began bombing Libya last month, MSNBC’s Ed Schultz mounted a robust and combative case in favor of the new war. Repeatedly showing footage of the aftermath of the 1988 Lockerbie bombing and invoking Americans allegedly killed by Moammar Gadhafi (in the 1980s), Schultz insisted on referring to the rebels as “freedom fighters.” At one point, he even questioned the patriotism of President Obama’s critics: “Where is the patriotism of the Republican Party?”
As one of the most reliably partisan voices on cable news, Schultz’s support for a Democratic president’s war would seem to be unsurprising. But his nationalist bombast also seemed to betray reactionary tendencies — and served as a reminder of an often overlooked chapter in the liberal talker’s biography: Schultz spent years as a rabid right-wing talk radio host in North Dakota before abruptly switching sides about a decade ago and emerging as one of the country’s preeminent left-of-center personalities.
Vestiges of the old Ed surface from time to time. Last September, for example, Schultz responded to a wave of gang violence in Chicago by calling on Obama to deploy the military in the city:
Mr. President, I got a great idea as to where you can send those troops that you just brought home from Iraq. How about Chicago, Illinois and a bunch of other big cities in this country? It’s time we look out for our own backyard, security is an issue.
But all of this pales in comparison to the sort of rhetoric Schultz served up in his days as the Rush Limbaugh of the Great Plains. His old station, KFGO in Fargo, told me that recordings of his old shows don’t exist. But a string of profiles from 2004, when Schultz was launching his left-leaning national radio show, remain available online and preserve some of his statements.
The right-wing version of Schultz opposed abortion in all circumstances, mocked homeless people by sneering, “How about getting a job?” and proclaimed that “I’d like to see the president get all the illegals out of the country, so we can start all over again.” And in an homage to Limbaugh, Schultz would tell listeners that he was broadcasting from “high atop” the studios of his Fargo radio station.
Ryan Bakken, a columnist at North Dakota’s Grand Forks Herald and a longtime Schultz skeptic, tells me Ed’s ideological shift was drastic. “Ed was about as conservative as you could come. He may not have switched 180 degrees, but he switched 179,” Bakken says.
Schultz declined to comment for this story through an MSNBC spokeswoman. But in his books, Schultz describes a first date with his future wife, Wendy — whom he met for lunch at a homeless shelter — as the event that sparked his reconsideration of politics. In his 2010 book, “Killer Politics,” Schultz claims he didn’t even know there were homeless people in Fargo:
Wendy asked me to meet her at a homeless shelter where she volunteered. It hadn’t really dawned on me that homelessness could exist in Fargo. In my mind, a homeless person was a slacker, someone who just wasn’t trying hard enough, and said these self-righteous things on the air. I didn’t know then that one in four homeless people is a Vietnam veteran.
But in 2000, according to a Washington Post profile, Schultz announced on the air that he’d become a Democrat. It was auspicious timing. That year, George W. Bush was elected president, creating an eight-year bull market for left-leaning media.
Schultz’s transformation was so thorough that, in 2003, he even considered running for North Dakota governor against a Republican incumbent. Instead, Schultz — one of the few regional liberal radio hosts with solid ratings — was recruited to be part of an effort to create an alternative to conservative talk radio. His national show launched in ’04 with financial assistance from Democracy Radio, a group for which several Democratic senators — including Hillary Clinton, Tom Daschle and Debbie Stabenow — had raised money.
Some still doubt the motivations behind Schultz’s political shift.
“Ed saw an opening,” says Bakken, the Grand Forks Herald columnist. “He’s always been smart and able to take advantage of opportunities.” Bakken says that earlier in Schultz’s career, when he was a sportscaster covering football, he switched his allegiance from North Dakota State University to rival University of North Dakota after changing stations.
In an ’03 column, Bakken speculated that Schultz’s transformation was a response to competition from another right-wing talker:
The reason for his shift is that Scott Hennen moved next door in Fargo and took a foothold on the right side of the political spectrum. You can’t get to the right of Hennen without falling off the edge of the world. So that left the left as the only ground available to occupy. You can’t live in the thoughtful, open-minded middle and keep your job in talk radio.
But in his ’04 book, “Straight From the Heartland,” Schultz insists that “in a medium dominated by hard-right talkers, what I was doing looked a lot like career suicide. But it was simply a change of heart.”
AND…. This interview with Blackwater Author Jeremy Scahill might just have been the beginning of the end for Mr Ed:
So after all of this, it seems CLEAR…. Good things come to those who wait, and in the end there is no refuge for traitorous scoundrels!
Now lets just “Hope” that REAL Liberals keep holding these “repeaters” hooves to the fire.
