Financial Colapse of US Imminent

Better take all the money out of the banks you can get before its too late!
Collapse of U.S. Economy Imminent
60 comment(s).
In its attempt to establish a world empire dominating every nation on the planet, the U.S. has exhausted its ability to finance the expansion and the country now faces imminent financial collapse. From all indications, it looks like 2006 will spell the end for America.
Consider these five important points:

Point #1 The U.S., Great Britain and Israel are preparing to attack Iran. As it appears the main reason for invading Iraq was to stop it from selling oil in Euros, likewise Iran has plans to dump the dollar come March 2006.

Point #2 U.S. Treasury Secretary John Snow issued a warning recently that the U.S. Government is on the verge of collapse - as the statutory debt limit imposed by Congress of $8.184 trillion dollars would be reached in mid-February - the government would then be unable to continue its normal operations. Considering the current total U.S. debt stands at $8.162 trillion dollars, once the official debt ceiling ($8.184 trillion) is reached, the U.S. government's credit abroad (its borrowing power) is gone. Those countries (mainly China) who presently keep America afloat by holding U.S. Treasury Notes, will most likely no longer continue doing so.

Point #3 Bank Of America and Compass Bank managers (probably all other U.S. banks too) have been instructing their employees in the last few weeks on how to respond to customer demands in the event of a collapse of the U.S. economy - specifically telling the employees that only agents from the Department Of Homeland Security will have authority to decide what belongings customers may have from their safe deposit boxes - and that precious metals and other valuables will not be released to U.S. citizens. The bank employees have been strictly prohibited from revealing the banks' new "guidelines" to anyone. (however, employees have been talking to friends and family)

The next time you visit your bank, ask them about it - then ask yourself, why is this information being kept secret from customers and the public - what's really going on?

Point #4 FEMA has activated and is currently staffing its vast network of empty internment camps with armed military personnel - unknown to most Americans, these large federal facilities are strategically positioned across the U.S. landscape to "manage" the population in the event of a "terrorist" attack, a civilian uprising, large-scale dissent ,or an insurrection against the government. Some of these razor-wired facilities have the capacity of detaining a million people.

Point #5 The Patriot Act and the US Senate's vote to ban habeas corpus (Nov 14th) - along with George W. Bush having signed executive orders giving him sole authority to impose martial law, suspend habeas corpus and ignore the Posse Comitatus Act, have together pretty much destroyed any notions of freedom and justice for Americans.

Summary: The U.S. economy is broken, the United States is bankrupt - the unchecked spending by this administration, the illegally waged wars against Afghanistan and Iraq, the cost of unprecedented weapons and military build-up - have all contributed to an irreversible emergency which is threatening our nation's existence and our very lives.

Hospitals are closing, major corporations are declaring bankruptcy and/or moving their companies overseas, the monopolized news media spews nothing but lies, and our fearless leaders have turned out to be only ruthless criminals hell-bent on destabilizing our country and robbing us all.

Be aware - we stand at the threshold of total ruin - the international bankers and war profiteers care little for our lives and families - these demons worship money and all things vile and evil - they have very much to gain from war, misery, disease, famine, chaos and death (our deaths).

We are right on the edge - the Treasury is already overextended - the U.S. government cannot (and will not) care for its own citizens' needs, nor secure our borders against illegal aliens - plus, the whole "terrorist" thing is a cruel hoax perpetrated against a trusting citizenry - and only designed to instill fear and garner support for the genocide taking place in Iraq.

Should America (along with British & Israeli forces) launch a war against Iran, or another country, without yet paying for, or even recovering from the current losses in Iraq and elsewhere - the costs of such of an invasion will overwhelm an already crippled economy and push the U.S. over the edge into oblivion.

Question: Considering the U.S. Treasury Notes that China currently holds (which keeps the U.S. economy going)...

Do you think China will continue to support a country's economy (the U.S.) whose military launches a nuclear strike against its neighbor (Iran) - thus delivering a blanket of radioactive fallout over western Chinese provinces - killing hundreds of thousands, if not millions of its citizens?

I think not.

Factoring in the aforementioned points of "preparation" engineered by U.S. authorities, I'd say there's a stinking rat in the woodpile ...can you smell it too?

I believe it, but 21.Jan.2006 15:25

Marleen

I noted that no source(s) for this info was ever mentioned,
even after repeated requests from those commenting on
the original article:

this is (at least) on place I found it:
 http://bellaciao.org/en/article.php3?id_article=9995

Even above indymedia post had no source listed.

Personally, I would tend to believe most or all of it,
but another source or sources would make it more credible.

Hide your valuables under the mattress, buried in a watertight
box. Anywhere but a bank safety deposit box (keyed by DIEBOLD).

I only put enough in my checking account to pay monthly bills.
The rest, is ... well, elsewhere.
On the moon, if the Feds ask me where.

P.S. Indy posters: Include sources, please!

Yes, please include source URLs - and Point #3, posted above is most suspect 21.Jan.2006 17:13

RE:

"...Bank Of America and Compass Bank have been instructing their employees in the last few weeks on how to respond to customer demands in the event of a collapse of the U.S. economy..."

umm, sounds really compelling but unless you can provide a specific [even if not identified by person's name, but simply by an official document/memo/email] SOURCE for this claim it means absolutely nothing.

This sounds plausible. Freezing bank assets has a long history.

When asked why he robbed banks, Sutton simply replied, "Because that's where the money is."

Executive Order 22.Jan.2006 00:01

Franklin Roosevelt

By Executive Order Of The President 
of The United States, March 9, 1933

"By virtue of the authority vested in me by Section 5 (b) of the Act of October 6, 1917, as amended by Section 2 of the Act of March 9, 1933 ... , in which Congress declared that a serious emergency exists, I as President, do declare that the national emergency still exists; that the continued private hoarding of gold and silver by subjects of the United States poses a grave threat to the peace, equal justice, and well-being of the United States; and that appropriate measures must be taken immediately to protect the interests of our people."

Therefore, pursuant to the above authority, I hereby proclaim that such gold and silver holdings are prohibited, and that all such coin, bullion or other possessions of gold and silver be tendered within fourteen days to agents of the Government of the United States for compensation at the official price, in the legal tender of the Government. 

All safe deposit boxes in banks or financial institutions have been sealed, pending action in the due course of the law.  All sales or purchases or movements of such gold and silver within the borders of the United States and its territories and all foreign exchange transactions or movements of such metals across the border are hereby prohibited.

Your possession of these proscribed metals and/or your maintenance of a safe deposit box to store them is known by the government from bank and insurance records.  Therefore, be advised that your vault box must remain sealed, and may only be opened in the presence of an agent of the Internal Revenue Service.

By lawful order given this day, the President of the United States."
                               Franklin Roosevelt - March 9, 1933

My main problem is with point #4 22.Jan.2006 01:36

scared shitless

"Some of these razor-wired facilities have the capacity of detaining a million people." Bullshit! (Unless you're referring to the spaceships that can hold one-million-people -- currently being built for our transport to the moon.)

The misinformation and outright lies found in this post are one of the BIG reasons that we will never come together when the shit really does go down. There's enough verifiable scary shit happening out there. Why do some people have to play 'War of the Worlds' on indymedia? Isn't your video gaming enough for you? Don't abductees have enough other places to spread their paranoias?

Stay home. Lock yourself in a closet. Forget going to the banks. They have cameras watching YOU. They already know all about YOU. You cannot escape. Your brain has already been captured by the aliens, and being a far superior race of beings, there's not a damn thing that YOU can do. You know this. There's no place you can go to seek help. YOU are constantly being watched.

The only option: Go outside. NOW! Rip your clothes off. Run screaming into the forests of Cascadia. If you're lucky, Bigfoot will find you and take you in. Bigfoot will take care of you. The aliens have not come for Bigfoot. They have come for YOU!

Anyway, here's what I found relating to point #4. More 'wheat' here than 'chaff'? That's up to you to decide.

MINDFULLY, 2004 - There over 800 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full-time guards, but they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA should martial law need to be implemented in the United States and all it would take is a presidential signature on a proclamation and the attorney general's signature on a warrant to which a list of names is attached. . . The Rex 84 Program was established on the reasoning that if a "mass exodus" of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA. Rex 84 allowed many military bases to be closed down and to be turned into prisons.
Operation Cable Splicer and Garden Plot are the two sub programs which will be implemented once the Rex 84 program is initiated for its proper purpose. Garden Plot is the program to control the population. Cable Splicer is the program for an orderly takeover of the state and local governments by the federal government. FEMA is the executive arm of the coming police state and thus will head up all operations. The Presidential Executive Orders already listed on the Federal Register also are part of the legal framework for this operation.
The camps all have railroad facilities as well as roads leading to and from the detention facilities. Many also have an airport nearby. The majority of the camps can house a population of 20,000 prisoners. Currently, the largest of these facilities is just outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. The Alaskan facility is a massive mental health facility and can hold approximately 2 million people.

IN OREGON:
Sheridan - Federal prison satellite camp northwest of Salem. Josephine County - WWII Japanese internment camp ready for renovation.
Sheridan - FEMA detention center. Umatilla - New prison spotted.

Animal story 22.Jan.2006 09:09

Converse Murdoch umlaut@idir.net

I saw on one of these animal programs how wolves would attack a herd of bison. One wolf would charge at the herd and panic them into running. Then the wolf pack would attack from behind getting the slowest bison.

The bison figured this out and when the wolves tried this the bison woud gather in a circle and put their heads down pointing their horns at the wolves. The wolves couldn't deal with it.

The moral of the story: Don't panic, stick together, and grow horns.

on Point #4 - simply against the laws of physics 22.Jan.2006 10:33

RE:

this is typical Kook Militia screed.

while there may in fact be a certain amount of "FEMA boxcars" (and perhaps former military bases to be used as "camps") -

they're going to need a HELLUVA LOT of them to incarcerate ________200 million________ (yes, even given the purported Alaskan facility) or more sheeple.........

What's happening to the US military in Iraq, again? Katrina?

Sources for US Treasury Secretary warning 22.Jan.2006 19:26

Free human being

Here are some sources quoting the Treasury Secretary. Here is the catch though. He is calling for an increase of the debt ceiling, meaning that since we've almost reached the limit, if Congress raises it, we can continue to borrow. Ain't it great? Thus no US economic collaps yet.

 http://www.forbes.com/afxnewslimited/feeds/afx/2006/01/01/afx2422463.html

 link to www.sfgate.com

"In the last 50 years, the United States has raised its debt ceiling more than 70 times,..." [so we can put in perspective what this means. Nothing. The economy has already collapsed, but on paper you could not tell. As is evident from the quote, economists and politicians have become very good at working out their "fazzy math".
