The Economic Collapse

The Economic Collapse
Do you think that the price of food is high now? Just wait. If current trends continue, many of the most common food items that Americans buy will cost more than twice as much by the end of this decade. Global demand for food continues to rise steadily as crippling droughts ravage key agricultural regions all over the planet. You see, it isn't just the multi-year California drought that is affecting food prices. Down in Brazil (one of the leading exporters of food in the world), the drought has gotten so bad that 142 cities were rationing water at one point earlier this year.

Agenda 21 Agenda 21 is Sustainable Development, and was created through the United Nations. It is the blueprint for depopulation and total control, under the banner of saving the environment.

US slams Iran at UN atomic agency meet VIENNA (AFP) - The United States took a renewed swipe at Iran Monday, telling the annual gathering of the UN atomic agency Tehran was creeping "still closer" to producing nuclear weapons-grade uranium. "Iran has continued to engage in a longstanding pattern of denial, deceit and evasion," US Energy Secretary Steven Chu told the 151-nation International Atomic Energy Association (IAEA) general conference in Vienna.

Prescription Drug Deaths Now Outnumber Traffic Fatalities in U.S. Anthony GucciardiActivist Post In 2009, drugs exceeded the amount of traffic-related deaths, killing at least 37,485 people nationwide. According to information provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the very pharmaceuticals that are prescribed to treat life-endangering conditions are now ending lives.

Yoga is Revolution Dylan HuntActivist Post As the world situation degrades further into oppression, war and wanton environmental destruction, we need as many tools as possible to protect our physical and spiritual health and well-being. Rather than being in poor shape, in a lousy mood and frightened by every uncertainty, one can use the time we have now to strengthen and purify the body, balance the emotions, and sharpen the mind for more effective decision making. Gold is a Good Investment in a Corrupt Matrix, But Self-Sufficiency is Real Wealth Julian RoseActivist Post The great rush to find a safe haven financial investment has led many supposedly savvy citizens to put their money into gold. This has caused the value of the precious metal to soar, reaching over $1,800 per ounce, giving investors a sense of security that their money is safe and likely to hold its value. However, in a world undergoing seismic social, economic, and environmental convulsions that are growing by the day, gold may not prove to be the solution to our future security that many are hoping for. If one stands back from the spinning vortex of speculative financial roulette that preoccupies the world's media and many of her better-off citizens, one will observe that unfortunately gold is inedible (some will say 'fortunately') and is less easy to turn into plough shears than other base metals.

European Commission head calls NATO bombing of Libyans a “moral duty” Madison Ruppert, Contributing WriterActivist Post For weeks the mainstream media has been calling the uprising in Libya a success, despite any support for their position. Despite this false narrative, which included the capture of Tripoli from loyalists long before any such thing could be claimed, NATO is saying that they must continue to destroy what’s left of the Libyan infrastructure through their over-the-top bombing campaign. The NATO operation has resulted in countless civilian deaths in Libya, yet the head of the European Commission, Jose Manuel Barroso, characterized the mission as a “moral duty”. Is it NATO’s “moral duty” to support non-democratically elected, terrorist-linked rebels to the detriment of the people of Libya, even if it means they will die in the process? If you ask Barroso, then yes, it is definitely NATO’s duty.
