No Crisis Here, Move Along - A Re-Post

Folks, the words I wrote about a year and a half ago are just as true today as they were then, only now, things have continued to get significantly worse. I can't even begin to recount the number of freedoms we have lost since this was written, or the growing resentment and anger that has festered to the boiling point all over the globe. We are a world in crisis, much of which has been brought on by design. We are about to see the culmination of many years of planning. For those that are taking control, it must be grand to finally succeed. The tyrants are on the lose and will stop at nothing to achieve each and every item on their agenda. 

I hope you enjoy this article and it provides you with food for thought. Fern

Remember when it took six months for the United States to amass the needed troops and equipment for Desert Storm? And then the storm came?

We are in the midst of many different storms and we have been given this time to amass our own equipment. Why is it that we have seen fluctuating supplies and sometimes shortages of everything from wheat grinders, to shovels, to canning jars and lids, to freeze dried foods, to ammunition? Because The People, many mom and pops, uncles, aunts, cousins, sisters and brothers are gathering what they need to weather the storm. There are so many things happening around the globe, and especially in our own backyard, that are adding impetus and energy to the storm.


How many troublesome things have you run across lately? They appear to become more numerous each day. The message seems to be hunker down, be ready, it's coming. The harder we try to get things in order, the more obstacles arise in our way. But you know what? That's okay. It just makes us more determined and focused .....because we know it's storming all about us.


We talked to a medical doctor recently that told us he has a list of medications on his desk that he can no longer prescribe to Medicaid patients, I'm sure you know why. Digitalis is one of the most popular medications given for heart conditions and it is on his list. He is deeply offended for being put in a professional quandary. His hands are being tied when it comes to offering the best medical treatment for his patients. I can't help but wonder if this is one of the ways TPTB (the powers that be) are going to save money. Not only will they save money on prescriptions, they will decrease the number of people receiving Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security, by impacting some of the recipients ability to get the type of medical care that would have prolonged their life. I know that is a very harsh thing to say, but I think it is true. And I think it is part of the plan.


The people of Crimea that could see what was coming to their country, took their money out of the bank. Did you? Have you spent the time wondering how you will be able to 'buy' what you need when the money you have is worthless, or you can't get it out of the bank because the banks are closed, or they just won't let you have it? You say this can't happen? Look at the number of countries which are modern, industrial nations, where it has happened in just the last few years. The dollar becomes worth less and less with each passing day. The dollar in your pocket buys much less than it did just six short months ago. How much less will it buy in six more months? Do you know how to barter? Do you have anything that will be worth bartering? Do you have skills that are worthy of barter? Rush Limbaugh has said something like, if just 1% more of the people in our country became aware of what is happening, then the store shelves would be empty. Empty. Think about that. Just imagine what it would be like if 10% more people became aware and tried to stock up. There would be nothing left. There would be panic and chaos. But that's what we want, right? More people to be aware and prepare. I know I do. But do we have the resources for that to happen? No. So, how can we get more people to prepare? Teach them to produce more for themselves for their daily necessities, and stop being dependent on the corporate and government systems.

How many people have been affected by the weather and cold temperatures this winter? Millions. How many people have had to go without because of the drastic price increases and shortages of  heating oil and propane? What would we do if the supplies needed to stay warm were no longer available? That would be a major catastrophe. A crisis. But what do we hear? Nothing.
No crisis here. Just global warming. Ha! So we need to put more restrictions on the ability of people and companies to engage in good old fashioned commerce, you know, free enterprise, right? That will solve the crisis of global warming. Crisis, what crisis? Move along and drink the coolaid. You know, that is one thing I am not stocking up on. We don't drink it, too much sugar.

Can you see where the people in Egypt are better off than five years ago? And do you really think the people in Libya are better off than they were? Let's go down the list. How about the folks rioting or 
protesting in Argentina, Bolivia, Venezuela, Libya, Egypt, Algeria, Greece, Corsica, France and Spain? I'm not even going to mention central Africa. Don't think it can happen here? What about the rising tensions in Iran, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Israel? And don't forget about Christians being murdered all over the world.  You don't think it could happen in America as well? Then look at Chicago, Detroit and Atlanta. The United States military is removing God more and more everyday. I wonder when being a Christian will be some type of a crime in this country?

It seems that the 'weather men' that know the storm is here keep trying to placate The People with pleasant platitudes and the antics of the rich and famous, which include our illustrious bureaucrats. If that is not enough entertainment, then they fill the silver screen
with an overpowering, nauseating amount of filth, sex and mindless drivel. And to keep everyone's attention riveted, every so often a false flag distraction is thrown in for good measure. Crisis of the day in any flavor you like. Remember, don't ever let a good crisis go to waste. 

The bottom line folks, is that the less you are dependent on any other person or system for your health, wealth and well being, the better off you are. Don't spend your time being distracted by the latest crisis or
non-crisis that is made to appear like another crisis. Don't buy into the, "Oh, No! The sky is falling!" crowd. If you do, when the time comes that the sky truly does fall, you will be left standing there with your hands out wondering when the truck will show up with your next meal and bottle of water. Don't ever get on the truck. It will be the last trip you ever make. Take the time to learn and decide for yourself. Don't take the media's word for anything, research, READ don't watch, learn and come to your own conclusions. Don't take my word for it either. Use your mind, heart and soul and pray for wisdom, knowledge and guidance.


I'm angry, I'm broken hearted and I'm determined. I'm tired of watching our world and our country go down the tubes. I cannot see living under the yoke of a tyrannical, socialist government that gets worse everyday. There IS a crisis here and we will not just move along, shuffling our feet to the beat of the wrong drummer. If you have not already done so, you need to open your eyes, truly look around you, and take the action necessary to provide for you and yours, because no one else will. If you think they will, you will have a long wait, and in the end, you will be sorely disappointed.

I pray God's blessings on each and every one of you.

Until next time - Fern

  1. I find it astounding that given the continuing downward spiral from the time your article first appeared, there are still so many who cannot or will not see what is happening in our world.

    1. Hasn't it always been the case throughout history, Vicki? The collapse, or fall, or invasion, or calamity just isn't real to most people until it hits them square in the face and there is no way to deny it any longer. Unless, of course, you're a politician, then you can continue to lie and deny it all the way to the grave. Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts with us.

  2. there has been a move for quite some time to inure people to genocide of the old, the, halt, the lame, the ill.

    the central governors will withhold, say, insulin from certain areas until their diabetic enemies are dead.
    it will be made to appear unavoidable.
    that is just the tip of the iceberg.

    see the third reich for more horrible but 'unavoidable' crises.

    1. Interesting perspective, Deb. There have been many desensitization campaigns going on for a long time. Take partial birth abortion. Many people accept it as just the way it is, for the life of me I cannot see how, but they do. How can they think that the birth of a full-term baby, accept for the brain that has been sucked out of it's skull, is okay? How can anyone possibly wrap their mind around that thought, realistically, and think it is okay? Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thank you, Annabel. Sometimes it's amazing to look back at something I have written. Like this one. I didn't write it, there was definitely Someone Else that had a hand in it. Isn't God wonderful?

    1. How very, very true. No matter how much you may want to ignore something, it doesn't make it go away. Very well said, thank you for sharing.

  5. The main question many of us ask - if this is a long slow financial decline, how will those of us that have "prepared" weather a total collapse but then can't pay the mortgage because this slow train wreck of an economy continues for years? During the Great Depression, hundreds of thousands lost their homes because they couldn't find gainful employment. The risks of job loss are increasing. I guess we should all be asking what happens to people with mortgages as the economy rolls down hill - will things get so bad the banks essentially fail and we get a free pass for a couple of years? This is the one thing that keeps me up at night. We've worked hard to be self sufficient, but like so many others out there our ability to stay on our land is directly related to our ability to pay the mortgage.

    1. Hello, very good question. The answer is the difficult part. It's easy to say save up your money and pay off early, but in the vast majority of cases that is just not possible. You're right about the Great Depression, many folks lost their land or homes.

      My best recommendation is try to have as many months payments as possible stored away. Foreclosure laws differ from state to state, and it also depends on who holds your mortgage. In some situations payment can be delayed, in other situations you can pay just the interest and not the principal. That would extend your payment debt, but in this scenario, that may be what you're looking for.

      If possible, check with your lending agency ahead of time and ask them that very direct question. See if they have a plan in place, you might be surprised what you find out. Let us know what you do find out, I'm sure others have this same question. Thank you for reading and thank you for asking.

      Thank you Frank. We will ask our mortgage company about options and see if they are forthright with their answers. My wife and I have considered an outright purchase of 5 acres bordering national or state forest, installing well and septic, then planting a double wide on the property - just as insurance (and no mortgage!). The costs of developing that land - gardens, fencing, outbuildings/workshop, gravel driveway, etc. are daunting to say the least. But it's a good long term project. Thank you for replying to these comments!
