Not Prepared: Will Most Americans Be Absolutely Blindsided By Multiple Wars And A Simultaneous Economic Collapse?

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

According to CBS News, an astounding three-fourths of all Americans have to “scramble to cover their living costs” each month.  In other words, most of the country is either living paycheck to paycheck or very close to it.  But instead of tightening their belts and trying to put something away for the very hard times that are coming, most Americans are completely and utterly unprepared for what is ahead because the people that they trust on television keep telling them that everything is going to be okay.  Unfortunately, everything is not going to be “okay”, and when things start falling apart all around us there is going to be a lot of anger directed toward those that have been lulling everyone into a false sense of security.


One of the reasons why I am sounding the alarm so loudly is so that people will not be blindsided by the things that are about to happen to this country.  As you will see below, we are on the precipice of two major wars, conditions are ripe for a devastating economic collapse, and if you were to throw in a major natural disaster or two you would have a recipe for the kind of “perfect storm” that many have been warning about.

Earlier today I focused on our looming economic problems, and in this article I want to address the potential for more military conflict in the very near future.  When Donald Trump hit Syria with 59 cruise missiles, millions of Americans greatly celebrated, but much of the rest of the world was deeply alarmed.

The Trump administration has said that more strikes are possible, but Russia and Iran are both pledging that “we will respond with force” if any more attacks are conducted…

RUSSIA and Iran have said they will respond to further American military actions following the air strike in Syria last week.

In a joint statement, the command centre for the two countries and allied groups said “we will respond to any aggression”.

The statement read: “What America waged in an aggression on Syria is a crossing of red lines. From now on we will respond with force to any aggressor or any breach of red lines from whoever it is and America knows our ability to respond well.”

Do you understand what that means?

If Trump fires off any more cruise missiles at Syria, we will essentially be in a state of war with both Russia and Iran.

Previously, Russia had warned that our two nations were “one step from war” because of Trump’s actions, but the Trump administration is showing no signs of backing down.  In fact, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley says that regime change in Syria is now a top priority

The US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, who has done a remarkable job of continuing the diplomatic tone set by her predecessor Samantha Power, said in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” which will air in full on Sunday, that regime change in Syria as one of the Trump administration’s top priorities in Syria.  Her statement was a complete U-turn from what she said just over a week ago, when she told a group of reporters that the US was “no longer focused on getting Assad out.”

Some members of the administration are apparently even advocating a full-blown invasion of Syria.  For example, it is being reported that National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster has come up with a plan to send 150,000 U.S. ground troops into the country…

As NSA, McMaster’s job is to synthesize intellience reports from all other agencies. President Trump is being given an inaccurate picture of the situation in Syria, as McMaster is seeking to involve the U.S. in a full scale war in Syria.

The McMaster-Petraeus plan calls for 150,000 American ground troops in Syria.

Many special operations veterans including General Joseph Votel have raised serious concerns about McMaster’s plans for Syria.

I don’t know if I have the words to describe how incredibly foolish that would be.

Do we really want to fight an extremely bloody ground war with the combined forces of Russia, Iran, Syria and Hezbollah?

There is very little good that could come out of a war in Syria even in the most rosy scenarios possible, but if things go bad they could go really, really bad.

Meanwhile, NBC News is reporting that President Trump is considering various military options for North Korea, and one of those options includes “killing dictator Kim Jong-Un”…

The National Security Council has presented President Donald Trump with options to respond to North Korea’s nuclear program — including putting American nukes in South Korea or killing dictator Kim Jong-un, multiple top-ranking intelligence and military officials told NBC News.

After seeing what happened in Syria and hearing these threats openly discussed in the U.S. media, what do you think Kim Jong-Un is thinking at this point?

One member of Congress is warning that “millions can die” if a military strike against North Korea goes badly.  Once U.S. missiles begin flying, North Korea can start firing off their nukes and their vast arsenal of chemical warheads almost instantly.

Could you imagine what would happen if large numbers of deadly nerve gas warheads started exploding in downtown Seoul, downtown Tokyo and at U.S. military bases in Japan?

The carnage would be off the charts, and this is a scenario that we want to avoid at all costs.

Unfortunately, it seems like we are coming closer to a conflict with North Korea with each passing day.  In fact, today we learned that an aircraft carrier strike group headed by the USS Carl Vinson is sailing in the direction of North Korea right now

Amid rising tensions with North Korea, an aircraft carrier strike group led by the USS Carl Vinson were heading toward the Korean peninsula.

The aircraft carrier and its accompanying ships had been scheduled to leave from Singapore for port visits to Australia on Saturday, but Adm. Harry Harris, head of U.S. Pacific Command, ordered the strike group to head north toward Korean waters instead.

So what happens if the U.S. starts fighting two major wars simultaneously, the biggest debt bubble in the history of the planet starts bursting, and the U.S. stock market crashes by 50 percent as some analysts are projecting?

Some Americans still have memories of living through the Great Depression and World War II, but most of us have been living in a bubble of peace and prosperity for so long that we don’t think that anything could ever come along and threaten our way of life.

And since the election of Donald Trump, interest in “prepping” has dropped to the lowest level that I have ever seen.  Most people have been lulled into a false sense of security, while the truth is that we have entered perhaps the most dangerous period of time in modern American history.

So you all can do whatever you want, but me and my house are going to get prepared for the tremendous storm that is about to hit this nation.

Those that are wise will do the same, but unfortunately most Americans are going to get absolutely blindsided by what is coming because they have been trusting the wrong voices.

    The reason people have to “scramble to cover their living costs” is because the CEOs make like zillions per year and will never ever give a raise.

    CEOs live a life of luxury off of other people’s hard labor, sometimes exploiting the poor workers to the fullest extent possible.

      I had an employer that took full advantage of the JTPA (Job Training Partnership Act) program in California years ago. He only paid minimum wage during apprenticeship and he got reimbursed by California for 1/2 of that for 90 days. he was real nice for the first 90 days but became an asshole when he had to pay your full wages and the reimbursement ended.

    “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.” — Matthew 24:6. Donald Trump has now become an integral part of the military-industrial complex. Trump is now following orders, but who is giving the orders? All of this current sabre rattling seems to be nothing more than a distraction designed to hide what is really going on. There will now be fear-based acceptance of oppressive governmental actions which will be disguised as national security protection measures.

    • iris

      Yes, the wars and rumors of them abound these days, and they are signs of the end of this age. God wants us to be aware, but untroubled, as the verse you quoted says. And that is possible when we keep our hearts close to Him and remain occupied in His will. The first order of business for Christians is to share the gospel lovingly, truthfully and humbly, in word and deed, and point others to Him, crediting Him for what is good. To be prepared if possible, is certainly wise, but there is so much which will always be out of our control. Our citizenship as believers is in heaven, and this state of affairs is very temporary.

        There can be no doubt that God’s purpose for shaking everything that can be shaken so that the only things remaining are those things that can’t be shaken are to get His people to focus on the majors and ignore the minors. Many of the inhabitants of this world, especially western leaders, have completley lost their minds in the last 2-3 years! Why do so many put trust in men/women?

        As you state, “Our citizenship as believers is in heaven”.
        More accurately, it is in Jesus who will return His exiled ones to “the Land’. He will soon return to rule and reign there and from which there will be no end to the increase of His government, in fulfillment of the Father’s promises made to Abraham.

        Considering so few actually understand God intends to dwell here on the earth with us (it is His house made for His family), instead of taking all of us to heaven to dwell with Him, the additional time during these days of confusion, to read, listen, and study these things out for ourselves, is a blessing.

      #1. The globalist agenda will eventually win out. #2. Christians citizenship is in heaven, in the afterlife. #3. There will be wars and rumors of war. The key word being “wars”. Rumors of war are fine and they are saber rattling. An actual war or wars is something else again. Time to dig the old links out for the prepper sites and find a cave in the mountains…. just in case. That is not fear mongering… it is common sense. Don’t worry about it because of our citizenship in heaven, that is where we are going regardless. But, be wary too.

    1. America drops atomic bomb on Japan in 1945
    2. 9/11
    3. Nuclear war in the Middle East.
    4. America, Russia and China go to war because of #3
    5. Rome is wiped out via nuclear terrorism thanks to Iran.
    6. Europe and Iran go to nuclear war because of #5
    7. Antichrist appears because the world is freaked out. There is a delay, then …
    7a. Antichrist nukes Russia and China within about a year of #7, and they retaliate.

    And the end is not yet.

    Right now it looks like #3 is about to open up.

    I disagree entirely. Despite appearances the world is now a far safer place. America is back thank God. The Russians and Chinese know this. North Korea will face a Chinese invasion if it carries on the way it does. Russia will not fight a war on behalf of Islam shia. Saudi Arabia and Turkey are the fly in the ointment. It is evil. Assad will no “step-down”. The West should ensure he remains in power. Russia and The USA will join forces to rid the world of Wahabism. The states of Europe will eventually unite against the stupid “Socialists” and multicultural idiocy. They will be arrested and Christianity will again become main-steam. We are in a real new world order but not the one(s) dreamed of by the current fools in power. They do not understand history.

    Yes things look terrible and they are but it will pass. War and noises of war and more than a few deaths but not the global cataclysm planned by the nutjobs that created this chaos. Saudi Arabia is basket case and it too will have to change- if the New Elite Trump and co allow it to. Russia is no real threat either but has a large nuclear arsenal that it will be forced to use if goaded. It cannot afford a war and has not the means to maintain aggression so in desperation will resort to the Doomsday senarion to save itself. This is the danger,

    I could not agree more with this article. You have very little time to store up food/water and weapons to defend yourselves. Do not depend on the grid being up–in fact, it will probably be taken down to control the population. Most of all, make SURE your heart is right with the Lord Jesus Christ. HE is our ONLY hope.

    how about the paycheck to paycheck future survivors…who as a whole know whats happening and what is coming, but have zero ability to save (or save more) for the impending financial disaster…. Or live in areas that make it extremely difficult right now to acquire self-defense options (NY, CA, MD, CT, MA etc..) or to grow gardens or collect water on their land, etc…. The current government bureaucrats (controllers) are actively keeping Americans from preparing through a variety of policies to ensure that if they try to avert the impending disaster (if they can afford to try) that they will suffer under the administrative/police state today

      Not a solution for everyone but I got a duplex in appalatia with a backyard for 40 grand cash. Near a dump though but that reduces taxes. But I had financial disaster starting about 15 years ago so got out of dodge. Originally moved to dodge one of those places you mentioned to get better job opportunities but where are they now? It’s great having a big organic garden to make ferments for winter and salads during warm season to supplement my EBT and soup kitchen meals which as grateful as I am for soup kitchen often uses substandard food sources such as loaded with various contaminants, excitotoxins, sugars, and gmo’s.

    The next two major prophetic events will have an unbelievable impact on all humans … 1) the MASSIVE earthquake of Ezekiel 38:19-20 and 2) the gathering together and catching up of the Church into heaven (the rapture). It’s very sad to watch most humans living without hope – because the gift of Jesus is free to all who would believe. Please, please, turn to the Lord before it’s too late.
