The Economic Collapse of 2009 (Part 4)

Ten weeks ago, I reported that the past is repeating as Russian grocery shoppers are increasingly facing long lines and food shortages at their local supermarkets. I previously noted that the Russian supermarket shelves are increasingly empty due to the Western central banker’s psychopathic manipulations of the system and their self-serving policies which are now purposely and effectively bankrupting the nations of the planet. For example, the Russian food chains such as Samokhval and Mosmart, which represent a total of 118 grocery outlets, have been unable to keep their shelves properly stocked because they are unable to advance their credit to the point where they can refinance their corporate debts and food distributors have subsequently stopped supplying these outlets. The Russian government has attempted to institute a news blackout in an effort to stop the spread of dissent among like-minded Russians.  
Despite the news blackout, and in response to the unpublicized Russian food shortages, there have been street protests in Moscow , St Petersburg , Kaliningrad , Vladivostok and Barnaul . Police crushed the dissenters as they marched with copies of the Russia 's constitution in their outstretched hands. Worldwide, very little product is moving and the shortages are spreading and worsening. Further, these shortages, coupled with a soon-to-be commercial real estate collapse, are headed to our shores as liquidity has dried up and public trust in the old guard corporations has evaporated.
Banks are refusing to write the letters of credit vital to the shipping of bulk goods. Some of the container ships have been forced to carry lighter loads while bulk cargo piles up in ports around the world, particularly in East Asia .
As one of the world's most important shipping nations, Germany , is particularly vulnerable to these p roblems. German companies own 36% of the world's container ship capacity, while the country's banks are responsible for about 40% of global shipping financing. However, global shipping is facing the worse crisis in decades as cargo rates have fallen by 90% since July of 2008 as the once robust shipping boom has turned to bust. Many ships are now sailing half-empty, if they are sailing at all. In fact, most shipping companies are pulling more and more ships off the seas. Experts estimate that 25% of all ships used to transport raw materials in the Pacific are now idle. The problem is so bad that some shipping companies are now forfeiting advances paid to shipyards of up to 40% of a ship's price because they are unable borrow the necessary millions necessary to get products to market
The Russians are beginning to march in the street. The Greeks are already there. How long until this lack of liquidity shows up in your supermarket and scores of Americans are forced to take to the streets in a last ditch effort to meet their basic needs of survival? Your supermarket contains 3 days worth of food. What’s in your pantry?
Parts one and two of this series detailed the progression of events which will culminate in a revolution with the trigger event being the impending commercial real estate collapse and the resulting hyperinflation of the dollar. The soon to be worthless dollar coupled with very little product getting to market, will undoubtedly result in a vicious public backlash spreading into massive civil unrest. But does the coming revolution have to be a violent one? It certainly will be if our leaders continue on their present path of arrogance based on the belief that they are above the people that they purport to serve (e.g., “So what”). If the revolution is to be nonviolent, and we look at the best of all possible scenarios, the coming events could very well follow the lead of the former Soviet Union in which the country will experience a series of breakups into smaller nation states as each state entity will seek to preserve itself at the expense of belonging to the sinking Union. From this confederation, based on the globalists’ strategy of divide and conquer, we will likely see the absorption of these fragmented areas, which once comprised the former United States, into a North American Union as the world races headlong into regionalization under the auspices of the central bankers with the final destination being world government and a one world currency. From there, the last and largest obstacle of world dominance, on the part of the international bankers, the world will be well on the on the way to towards world governance.
Does this sound so far-fetched? Consider that on March 27, 1969, President Richard Nixon divided the country into 10 regions via the Government Reorganization Act. As a result of Nixon’s Executive Order 11647, the nation was divided up into 10 administrative regions on February 14, 1972 (Federal Register February 12, 1972, Vol. 37, No. 30), which also established the Federal Regional Council for the newly designed 10 regions. Why would Nixon redefine the United States? Nixon capitulated because the United Nations passed a resolution that the United States must reorganize into 10 regions. The IMF, the World Bank, the Federal Reserve, the United Nations and the Bank of Settlement are not your friend and the bad guys are winning while their marching orders are being strictly followed by their corporate and banking minions that we call our political leaders. Their plan is being implemented through such organizations as National Councils on Mayors, the National Governors Association and the American Legislative Exchange Council. These three corporate sponsored political organizations are the working groups of the globalists as they have learned to dominate local politics and effectively gut the 10th Amendment to the Constitution. They have an agenda and its number is 21. Haven’t you ever wondered how terms and their meanings are identical from one community to another (e.g., Smart Growth). So much for the constitutional principle of federalism, it died with the establishment of these three groups.
I used to fear the establishment and implementation of the North American Union because the country that I love would be no more that window dressing as we move toward what Bush (41) called “New World Order.” However, in a strange twist, the relatively peaceful establishment of the NAU could be preferable to what is more likely to transpire as events continue to spin out of control.
How bad will it get?
