Without a doubt, the notion of “end times,” with its apocalyptic scenarios of complete societal breakdown – especially in stable countries like the United States – seem very remote, and for good reason. Through thick and thin, good times and bad, America has managed to survive.

But look at it this way: While most of us will never see our homes go up in flames, we nevertheless have fire coverage in our homeowner’s insurance. While the likelihood that we’ll die early is remote, most nevertheless carry life insurance. And so on.

Granted, there is a lot involved when it comes to prepping – time, money, training, etc. And you may never, ever need the food, water, weapons and gear that you collect and learn how to use.

But what if you do need it and don’t have it?

Let’s consider the 10 most important reasons why you should be prepping, even if the “S” never does hit the fan, as noted by Urban Survival Site:

  1. Job loss: No one likes to consider the prospect of losing their job, but the economy can certainly take a turn for the worse without the entire country falling apart. Consider the Great Recession of 2007-2009, which was caused by a collapse of the subprime lending and housing industries. Millions of people lost their jobs and their unemployment benefits did not nearly cover their expenses (plus they eventually ran out). Preppers already have food, cash and supplies on hand to tide them over until they find another job.
  1. Financial turmoil: Life is full of surprises – unexpected expenses can set you back, such as a big car repair bill or medical expenses (especially in the age of Obamacare). Preppers always have a ready supply of the basics to get them by. Most prepping items consist of foods you would normally eat anyway, and things you would normally use. (RELATED: This Easy-To-Set-Up Emergency Water Collection System Can Save Your Life.)
  1. Save money: While prepping costs money, it can also help you save money in the long run. “For one,” Urban Survival Site notes, “when you can go shopping you can focus on items that are on sale. If something you normally buy isn’t on sale, you can wait and buy it next time because you already have extra at home.” In addition, use prepping as a hedge against inflation; when buying in bulk and then storing what you buy, when prices for those items go up you will have paid much less for yours.
  1. Early retirement: If you save enough money as a prepper and learn to become more self-sufficient in the process, who knows – you might just be able to retire from your daily work grind months or even years earlier. Prepping leads to a cheaper lifestyle, meaning less monthly income is required.
  1. Deal with ordinary violence: Part of prepping is learning how to survive, and a large part of survival, for many people, is acquiring and learning how to use a firearm. We never know what dangers we may face in our everyday lives; buying a handgun and learning how to protect yourself as part of your survival preparation will go a long way towards keeping you safe from “ordinary” violent situations.
  1. Medical emergencies: Part of prepping is ensuring you have first aid supplies as part of your gear. After learning basic first aid – stopping bleeding, for instance – you’ll be much better prepared for any medical emergencies that crop up in the course of life. And who knows? You might just save a life.
  1. Mother Nature: Financial collapse, political unrest and anarchy aren’t the only threats to “normal” life. Natural disasters such as earthquakes, major winter storms, solar flares, tornadoes, or hurricanes, can and do happen every single year. If you’re a prepper, you’re going to be among a very small minority of people who won’t panic because you will have already taken care of your basic needs – food, water, shelter, etc. (RELATED: Master These 7 Basic Skills Before SHTF… Or You’ll Wind Up Begging The Government For Basic Supplies.)
  1. Man-made disasters: No one wants to think about it, but speaking globally, we live in dangerous times. War drums are beating everywhere. A massive attack on our homeland would throw our country into turmoil. But as a prepper, you will be well-equipped to not only defend yourself and your family, but to survive long after the initial attacks.
  1. Better health: Preppers understand they may have to “bug out” and live off the land for extended periods of time, which means having the physical ability to get to where they need to go. That means adopting an exercise program to improve stamina, strength and overall fitness. Being healthier means you’ll be better able to fight colds, infections, flu, etc., and less susceptible to strains, fractures and other injuries.
  1. Power outages: While most parts of the developed world don’t have to deal with frequent power loss, they still happen. Icy winter storms, equipment failure or other damage to lines can leave you without power, sometimes for days. Preppers will have the gear to deal with power outages, including portable heating, generators, the ability to still prepare food and so forth.

Engineers: The next California earthquake could “liquefy” 235-foot-high dam and unleash 29 billion gallons of water onto Silicon Valley /collapsiforniacom/2017-04-09-engineers-the-next-california-earthquake-could-liquefy-235-foot-high-dam-and-unleash-29-billion-gallons-of-water-onto-silicon-valley.html Mon, 10 Apr 2017 05:15:02 +0000 The Golden State just can’t seem to catch a break. Officials say that the Leroy Anderson Dam, near Morgan Hill, could “liquefy” in the event of an earthquake. The dam’s embankments have been deemed “seismically unstable.” Safety concerns about the dam continue to rise, especially after the Coyote Creek flooding that devastated thousands in San Jose, CA in February 2017.

Since 2009, the state’s Division of the Safety of Dams has had a restriction in place that limits the Anderson Dam to keeping a water level at or below 68 percent of its full capacity. CBS reported in February that the dam was at 90 percent  —  clearly, the concern about the safety of the dam is more than justified, especially after the Oroville Dam incident.

The rising water level and subsequent flooding have prompted Santa Clara Valley Water District Board of Directors Chair John Varela to send out a public letter informing area residents of the concerns surrounding the Anderson reservoir. “What would happen if a massive quake did occur? There’s a chance that the dam could be damaged, but the chance of immediate dam failure is exceedingly remote,” Varela said in the letter.

State officials from the Water District have cautioned that a 7.25 magnitude earthquake is all it would take to at least partially damage the dam. Depending on the level of collapse, a wall of water up to 35 feet high could be released and potentially flood Morgan Hill, Gilroy and San Martin. The district plans on beginning a seismic retrofitting project to secure the dam, but the project will not begin until 2020. It is expected to take four years to complete — leaving a very large window of time for that earthquake in question to shake the dam and flood the area.

It’s also worth noting that the retrofitting project began in 2012, according to the Santa Clara Valley Water District website. Apparently, the risk of impending disaster is not enough to spark the wheels of bureaucracy to move faster than a snail’s pace. Breitbart reports that officials say the endeavor is still in its “design phase,” and that it will be coming with a hefty price tag, estimated at around $400 million. Residents can expect to pay for the retrofitting project via a parcel tax and increased water prices for the next 30 years. (RELATED: Keep up with the government’s latest charades at

In the meantime, officials have decided to reduce the dam’s maximum water level by an additional ten feet, though whether or not that will be enough to ensure public safety is still up for debate; it’s better than nothing, but fixing the dam would clearly be preferable. As we learned with the Oroville Dam escapade, delaying repairs sets the stage for catastrophe.

Earlier this year, the Anderson Reservoir experienced its first flooding incident in over a decade. Water from the dam’s spillway began to overflow, the water level in Coyote Creek began to rise — and San Jose was left reeling from the effects. City officials were forced to order some 14,000 citizens to evacuate their homes during the mid-February flood — and shut down a portion of a major highway. Assistant City Manager David Sykes said private property damages added up to a steep $50 million, and public infrastructure damages were estimated to total up to $23 million.


In plain sight: How to stay hidden during a crisis /collapsiforniacom/2017-04-09-the-art-of-staying-invisible-in-a-crisis-situation.html Sun, 09 Apr 2017 17:12:30 +0000 Life can throw you a curve ball at any given moment. One minute you’re on a nice evening walk, the next you’re evading a mob of looters or crooked cops hot on your tail. In moments like these the last thing you want is to draw attention to yourself. Staying out of sight is the best thing to do in a crisis situation. Sometimes, however, the best place to hide is in plain sight. Here’s how you do it.

Blend in

The best way to stay hidden is to dress the part. Forget wearing bold and eye-catching clothing and accessories. Unless everyone else dresses that way, looking like you’ve got fat pockets is an invitation for trouble. Dress appropriately for your environment and keep it simple. If it’s raining outside, wear a raincoat. If you’re in a business district, throw on a blazer and slacks. You need to blend in and appear as though you belong, and people will know if you do or don’t from how you dress.

When it comes to color choices, neutral colors are best. Gray, dark blue, and beige and anything in between are recommended. As for garments, safe and flexible choices include a plain shirt and a pair of khakis. Have these ready so you can make a quick change when needed.

Blending in doesn’t stop with you. Your home needs to be inconspicuous and fit in with the rest of the neighborhood. Do not make it obvious you’re ready for a crisis. Doing this ensures that everyone will be making a beeline for your home when a crisis does come along. Your home should be just like the homes of everyone else. The same goes for your vehicle. Make sure that your home and your car have no distinct markings that would associate either with you. Trim your lawn and keep your bumper free of stickers.

Other tips

Looking like you belong involves more than just dressing the part. You need to act like it too. The saying, “when in Rome, do as the Romans do,” has never been more appropriate. Do what other people are doing to avoid sticking out. Strike a conversation with someone, preferably of your own gender. You’ll seem less obvious if you’re with someone else or a group. If that’s not possible, carry a local newspaper as a prop. Even if it’s in a foreign language and you can’t read it, it’s still a good tool to have on you.

Only run in case of an emergency. Running draws attention, which is the last thing you want. Walk in a relaxed manner but at the same time don’t appear as though you’re wandering aimlessly.

Do your best to look calm. If you look uncomfortable, you look suspicious. Look like you belong and should be where you are. Act like you’re a good mood but don’t overdo it.

Know your surroundings. Take note of any hiding spots or shortcuts you can use. Try to avoid long, open stretches of road because you’ll look strange if you’re there by yourself.

If you know the language or local dialect then put your linguistic skills to use.

Remember: you don’t want to be remembered, you want to be forgotten. Don’t be remarkable, don’t be noteworthy. Be the person you wouldn’t look at twice because there’s nothing more to them. Those kind of people tend to stay far away from trouble, and so will you.

Breakthrough brick-laying robot to put millions of brick layers out of work /collapsiforniacom/2017-04-07-breakthrough-brick-laying-robot-to-put-millions-of-brick-layers-out-of-work.html Sat, 08 Apr 2017 02:01:17 +0000 New York-based Construction Robotics has developed a bricklaying robot that can build walls six times faster than a human worker. The Semi-Automated Mason 100, nicknamed Sam, can lay up to 3,000 bricks daily compared with an average builder’s capacity of only 500 bricks a day. The robot Sam is made up of various parts including a conveyor belt, a concrete pump, and a robotic arm.

Two builders are needed to oversee the machine. The first builder feeds bricks into the robot. The machine’s nozzle covers these breaks in concrete before the robotic arm puts it in place. A second builder then smooths out the concrete before the robot places more bricks. The robot has already been deployed in construction sites in the U.S. Construction Robotics has announced that it is currently in talks with various construction companies and will bring Sam in the U.K. in the coming months. “We are going to be going over to the UK in the coming months to meet with some companies and see if we can find a home for Sam there,” says Construction Robotics president Scott Peters.

However, construction industry experts cautioned that the robot’s arrival could endanger the jobs of thousands of bricklayers in the U.K. Recent data shows that about a third of Britain’s construction workers are either middle-aged or seniors at 50 years or older. This figure accounts to around 620,000 retirees within the next decade. However, WASCO CEO Andy Sneed posted a testimonial in the company’s website, stating that the machine “doesn’t eliminate our masons at all. It simply helps them do more with less crew, while minimising [sic] the physical stress of repetitive brick-lifting motions.”

The Semi-Automated Mason is currently under fire as the construction workforce readily pointed out the robot’s limitations. The Construction Robotics’ YouTube account has been riddled with arguments about the Sam’s construction capacity.

One user posted: “Can you post a video of the robot building corners, piers, window openings? Can it adjust coursing or plumbness for screw-ups on the job or wrong steel heights?”

Another asked: “Can it set lintels and install flashing?”

A company representative confirmed that the robot has no issues with piers or window openings. The robot can be adjusted to handle plumbness. However, the representative admitted that the machine cannot handle corners.

Construction Robotics’ Semi-Automated Mason currently has a price tag of $20,000 for six units per month. The robotic machine requires heavy supervision to operate.

Australia unveils similar bricklaying machine in 2015

Australian inventor Mark Pivac developed a similar large-scale bricklaying robot in 2015. The fully-automated machine, called Hadrian, can lay up to 1,000 bricks per hour and work around the clock. Once commercially available, Hadrian is touted to build an entire shell of a building in only two days. In comparison, a human crew would require four to six weeks of manual labor to accomplish the same task.

Before laying the bricks, Hadrian examines a 3D layout of the building being constructed to calculate the location and the brick size needed for the project. Once the specifics are determined and the bricks are loaded, the robot cuts the bricks as needed and treats them with construction adhesive, which the company claims would help improve the construction speed and the structure’s overall strength and thermal efficiency.

“People have been laying bricks for about 6,000 years and ever since the industrial revolution, they have tried to automate the bricklaying process. We’re at a technological nexus where a few different technologies have got to the level where it’s now possible to do it, and that’s what we’ve done,” says Pivac.

Pivac is the founder of the Australian technology firm Fastbrick Robotics.


Is your “democracy” actually a totalitarian state? Take this quick quiz /collapsiforniacom/2017-04-07-is-your-democracy-actually-a-totalitarian-state-take-this-quick-quiz.html Fri, 07 Apr 2017 16:45:11 +0000 The USA is already a Totalitarian State with a Ministry of Propaganda that works overtime to generate a flimsy illusion of “democracy.”

(Article by Charles Hugh Smith from

Is your “democracy” (or republic) actually a Totalitarian State? That is, is it a “democracy” or “republic” in name only? To find out, take this quick quiz.

1. Does your government (federal, state and local) seize citizens’ assets without due process? In other words, the rule of law is dead; the state is the law. If the answer is yes, Your “democracy” is already a Totalitarian State. The answer in the USA is a definitive “yes.”

2. Does your government impose tyranny by complexity? If so, the average citizen lacks the wealth and connections needed to fight the seizure of private property without due process or recourse.

In the USA, the answer is “yes,” the government is a tyranny by complexity.

3. Is your government essentially “for sale” to wealthy elites? If the answer is yes, Your “democracy” is already a Totalitarian State–or more accurately, a fascist Totalitarian State.

4. Does your government spy on its entire citizenry? If the answer is yes, Your “Democracy” is already a Totalitarian State. The answer in the USA is a definitive “yes.”

Well, you have your answer: the USA is already a Totalitarian State with a Ministry of Propaganda that works overtime to generate a flimsy illusion of “democracy.” Please read the following links if you seek documentation of these systemic abuses of centralized power.

Orwell and Kafka Do America: How the Government Steals Your Money–“Legally,” Of Course (March 24, 2015)

Government in the USA is expropriating the private property of its citizenry without due process on a vast scale. I have provided documentation of this extraordinary reality many times over the years.

The various levels of government have a variety of “legal” (haha) means to steal your property without due process or recourse: civil forfeiture, absurdly expensive traffic fines that lead to jail sentences in the local debtors prison-gulag, forfeiture of assets, including land, should government agents find the marijuana plants they planted on your property (surprise!), the state steals your money in a bank account and notifies you after the fact that the state suspects you owe it taxes, though they have zero evidence of that claim–and on and on.

“Space weather” can cause cascading collapse across critical human civilization infrastructure, blocking rail transport, aviation, and food delivery /collapsiforniacom/2017-04-06-space-weather-can-cause-cascading-collapse-across-critical-human-civilization-infrastructure-blocking-rail-transport-aviation-and-food-delivery.html Fri, 07 Apr 2017 04:18:21 +0000 The European Commission’s Joint Research Center (JRC) warns that extreme space weather can damage critical infrastructure in the European Union (EU). In their new report, researchers at the JRC identified gaps found in current industry and science policies regarding the reduction of risks related to space weather and provided recommendations that would close these gaps. The report is a summary of a summit organized in partnership with the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency and the U.K. Met office, with the support of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) held late last year.

Space weather is defined by researchers as a collection of physical processes emitted by the Sun that affect the Earth and surrounding space. The Sun is constantly ejecting energy as flares of electromagnetic radiation. Most of these are in the form of radio waves, ultraviolet radiation, X-rays, infrared radiation, and light. The electrically-charged particles travel outward as solar wind, carrying projections of the Sun’s magnetic field with them. Eventually, these particles reach the Earth.

This, scientists say, is where the fun begins. A unique interaction between our planet’s magnetic field and the outer atmosphere take place. Sometimes, extreme space weather can cause large concentrations of energetic particles to collect around the magnetosphere and ionosphere, leading to magnetic variations. These variations can cause beautiful striations in the sky, which we know as auroras. However, beyond the beauty lies a potentially dangerous technological and societal problem.

Cascading effects

A main concern is that communication technology is highly sensitive to space weather. It is recognized that extreme solar flares can disrupt communication infrastructure — even those made from the latest materials. Given how heavily we rely on these channels, there could be havoc or even societal collapse should one of these fail. Critical infrastructure, especially those associated with the receipt and delivery of sensitive global data, should be assessed for sturdiness and viability. Beyond that, new methodologies and tools are needed to determine interdependencies between and among countries. Put simply: a multi-risk governance approach needs to be designed. This would enable coordination between sectors to mitigate the risk of isolation.

For example, a pan-European vulnerability assessment of a specific power grid would identify critical issues in a case of extreme space weather. Operators at the structure can determine whether a specific system would directly (or even indirectly) be vulnerable to space weather. If a potential hazard is found (e.g. dependencies on GPS), then contingencies should be made to build better communication between science and industry to ensure that relevant and reliable information will still be available.

Better forecasting

Early warning and preparedness can limit damage caused by severe weather. As of this writing, there are already several space-weather forecasting machinations in place in both the U.S. and Europe. Nevertheless, the new reports stress the need for consistency in these forecasts, and the need to obtain them from different service providers, if possible.

Current technologies are still unable to accurately predict space weather due to a limited understanding of the magnetic field orientation of certain electrons as they hit the Earth. As such, there are knowledge gaps within our system that need to be addressed.

Given these identified risks, the EU provides a policy background check which allows its members to state the top risks their country faces. The Union Civil Protection Mechanism show six countries in the EU listing space weather in their risk assessment. Authors of the report say that more emphasis should be given to the detrimental effects of space weather. It is untrue to think that activities happening billions of miles away have no bearing to modern life.

Solar activity can trigger radio blackouts and become a threat to satellite operations, aviation, and space flights. Magnetic storms can affect power grid operations. This is a valid concern that needs attention and resources.


Socialism sucks: Venezuela runs out of gas, despite having the world’s largest oil reserves /collapsiforniacom/2017-04-05-socialism-venezuela-runs-out-of-gas-despite-having-the-worlds-largest-oil-reserves.html Thu, 06 Apr 2017 04:02:20 +0000 Truth be told, the socialist utopia of Venezuela really couldn’t be any further from paradise. The authoritative regime in charge has been openly hostile towards the private sector for decades, leading to economic dislocation, empty shelves at the grocery stores and nationwide poverty. It has gotten so bad that many Venezuelans are resorting to digging through piles of trash in order to find something to eat. Crime rates in Venezuela are also through the roof, forcing people to live in fear alongside violent gangs that roam the streets. Given all of these problems, it would appear that it couldn’t get any worse for the socialist country. Sadly, though, when big government is in control, things can always get worse.

Recently, hundreds of Venezuelans found themselves stranded in their cars in the middle of the streets as the country’s gas stations ran out of their supply of gasoline. This was certainly a shock to many, as Venezuela, an OPEC nation, was believed to have the world’s largest oil reserves. (RELATED: Thousands of people are currently trapped in Venezuela due to a passport shortage).

Of Venezuela’s twenty-three states, eight of them have reported significant shortages in their supplies of gasoline – Miranda, Aragua, Lara, Barinas, Anzoategui, Nueva Esparta, Bolivar, and Monagas. Hundreds of cars in these states ran out of gas as they were waiting in seemingly endless lines to refill, significantly affecting the smooth flow of traffic.

Naturally, many residents expressed anger and frustration over the gasoline shortage. “I have been to four or five gas stations and it has been impossible to fill my car,” Jose Torres of Caracas explained to reporters. Student Freddy Bautista added, “Yesterday, I went to three filling stations and I couldn’t fill my tank. I’ve been waiting 30 minutes here, and it seems like I’ll be able to fill up today.”

Even though Venezuela’s oil reserves consist of some 298 billion barrels, the thickness of the oil requires it to be extensively refined before being sold to consumers. The Venezuelan government is reliant upon foreign nations to do this refining.

The newspaper El Carabobeno reported that the government’s excuse for the lack of gasoline was weather delays, which prevented oil shipments coming in from abroad from being quickly and efficiently distributed. However, the paper disputed that claim: “Within PDVSA there was knowledge that they could only bring to market 40,000 barrels of oil to meet a demand of 260,000 barrels weekly.” PDVSA stands for Petroleos de Venezuela, the Venezuelan state oil corporation.

Last month, Venezuela increased its exports of oil up to 88,000 barrels per day to countries like Cuba and Nicaragua, according to PDVSA documents obtained by Reuters. At the same time that Venezuela was increasing the amount of oil it was exporting, PDVSA ran out of money to pay for the refined oil that the country imports from abroad.

PDVSA did not respond to Reuter’s requests for comment on the matter.

It is absolutely astonishing how many people in our own country support entrusting the federal government with more power and ultimately the establishment of a socialist state. All one has to do to know that socialism fails is look to Venezuela, a country that can’t even make food and gasoline available to its people. Yet the most common arguments we hear from radical leftists like Bernie Sanders is that socialism leads to more fairness and more equality. They tell us that the redistribution of wealth is good for the economy because it “gives everyone a fair shake.” The obvious question, then, is that if socialism really is this paradise that liberals say it is, why is the socialist country of Venezuela currently teetering on the brink of collapse?


California slashes funding of public schools that have “too many whites” /collapsiforniacom/2017-04-03-california-slashes-funding-of-public-schools-that-have-too-many-whites.html Tue, 04 Apr 2017 03:21:20 +0000 The far-Left wackos who run the state of California are not only institutional bigots and racists, they are overt about it as well.

Well, if you’re white, that is – which makes this nothing short of hate on steroids, given that whites ceased to be a majority in the state in 2015, having been surpassed by Latinos.

As reported by KABC, there was growing outrage in late March at Walter Reed Middle School in North Hollywood because the school is facing larger class sizes and layoffs of staff and teachers, thanks to a law that limits funding for schools who have more white kids.

The station noted that the school is operated by the Los Angeles Unified School District, which hands out more funding to those with student bodies containing 30 percent or fewer white kids. In a recent letter to parents, district officials announced that they would be cutting funding to Walter Reed in NoHo, which is very highly regarded, because its student body consisted of more than 30 percent white children for the past few years. (RELATED: CLAIM: Berkeley Cops Were Ordered To Stand Down While Violent Left-Wing Terrorists Assaulted Conservatives.)

KABC noted further:

The racial formula was a condition imposed by court decisions dealing with desegregation in the 1970s. Parents, however, remain frustrated with what the cuts might mean for their children.

“When your class sizes are getting larger and you’re taking resources away from students, I mean as parents, you do want your kid to go to college,” parent Rosemary Estrada told KABC.

The district has tried to soften the budget cuts by changing the school’s spending formula to one that is instead based on the overall number of students, but that’s only going to help to an extent.

“Thankfully we’re going to keep our librarian,” said Sheila Edmiston, another parent. “We’re going to keep our nurse, but we may lose a few teachers, but not as many as we once thought.”

Nevertheless, the loss of funding will still result in several lost jobs and larger class sizes. “For many parents,” KABC reported, “the race-based reason of ‘too many white students’ has made the cuts more difficult to swallow.”

Well, that’s certainly putting it mildly. To assume that some parents – especially most white parents – aren’t seething about this is to be about as naïve as it gets.

A quick Google search will bring up a ton of references to past federal court cases ordering schools – especially across the South, decades ago – to de-segregate. The idea, which of course was correct, is that no matter what a child’s skin color, everyone deserves the same educational opportunities.

And while the Constitution acknowledged that we’re all “created equal,” that principle was not universally applied through most of our early history. But then again, that’s what was so genius about the Constitution; as our society evolved, it provided American legislators and courts the tools to change laws and practices to make things right, so to speak.

But how do those court rulings justify racism against whites today, especially when they’re not even a majority of the population in California? Broader question: Why has the Left been permitted to justify any and all racial bigotry as long as it is directed towards anyone with white skin? (RELATED: California Should Be Stripped Of Electoral College Votes Due To High Number Of Illegals In The CA Census.)

If equality means what it implies – and you know, California’s Left-wing Democrats claim they’re all about equality – then neither this school nor any other in the state (or anywhere) should be punished for any reason having anything at all to do with the ethnicity of students.

This is just another reason why sane people, with the means, are fleeing California in droves. High taxes, massive regulations, and racist education policies are not what most Americans find appealing.

Washington Post warns that deported illegal aliens will destroy wages in Mexico /collapsiforniacom/2017-04-03-washington-post-warns-that-deported-illegal-aliens-will-destroy-wages-in-mexico.html Tue, 04 Apr 2017 02:53:12 +0000 With each passing day – especially since Donald J. Trump won the November election – we can see how the formerly “mainstream” media is really nothing but an anti-American propaganda entity representing the Democratic Party.

Trump handed Hillary Clinton a second loss in her bid for the White House largely on a single promise: Make America Great Again. The foundation of the popular slogan is that America should take care of America and Americans first and foremost, because that ought to be the obligation of government and our institutions.

But that’s not how Democrats and their media sycophants see things. The Washington Post proved this once again in a recent story lamenting that Trump’s enforcement of immigration laws would mean more people in the country illegally from Mexico will have to go home – where they will then depress wages there (like they were doing in the U.S. – more on that in a moment).

As reported by the Post’s conservative D.C. competitor, the Washington Times, “no mouthpiece in Washington is a more reliable one for crazy leftists in the Democrat Party than the Washington Post, which is out with yet another head-scratcher on illegal immigration.”

“The story not only reminds us how far out of their depth these people are when they try covering illegal immigration accurately, it also reminds us how hilariously obtuse they are about their own fake news and biases.”

The crux of the Post report, says the Times, is that due to Trump’s “new enforcement policies” (which are really just a policy of enforcing existing immigration law), Mexico is preparing for “an influx of men and women like them.” (RELATED: Trump effect: Illegal immigration has plunged 27 percent since #45 took office.)

The fear? Well, these returnees may “transform Mexican society” in the same way their leaving for the U.S. did over the years.

What’s interesting here is that the Left has for years insisted that millions of Mexican citizens flowing into the U.S. was not a big deal at all, but if you thought it was, then you were a xenophobe and a racist (and writers at the Post would call you out). Now, suddenly, with a reverse influx, if you will, those same people will become some kind of negative force on society.

The Post also notes that flights of illegal aliens – many with criminal records in the U.S. but many without one – have increased from the United States back to Mexico. That is a good thing – for Americans. But Mexican citizens and elected officials? They don’t think so.

That’s because successive Mexican governments have been permitted by successive U.S. administrations, especially the most recently departed administration, to violate our immigration laws at will so the country could dump its poorest citizens in our laps. When U.S. taxpayers are ponying up for benefits like health care, welfare, child care and other social services – all without having any help from the illegal alien who is not paying income taxes (because they don’t have Social Security numbers) – the Mexican government doesn’t have to do it. Essentially, then, Mexico City has, for years, been exporting its poverty but then reaping the benefit as a source of income as Mexicans working in the U.S. illegally send large portions of their earnings back home.

Then comes this laugher from the Post: The paper actually found someone in Mexico City who is complaining that so many returning from the U.S. can’t speak Spanish – the language of Mexico.

You seriously cannot make this stuff up.

“Many of these people come not knowing how to speak Spanish,” Amalia Garcia, Mexican labor department secretary, told the Post. “They come feeling very bitter, very ashamed and very hurt.”

[Hint: This can be fixed when citizens from Mexico stop coming to the United States illegally and remaining there for years.]

So if Americans say anything at all about wanting immigrants – legal and otherwise – coming into the country to speak English, why are we labeled racists and hate-filled xenophobes, but it’s totally okay for Mexicans to expect those returning home to speak the language?

As for wage depression, companies that hire illegal workers do so very often at far less than prevailing wages. This has the effect of lowering wages for all workers – including low-skilled American citizens who live in a country with a much higher (and more expensive) standard of living.

The Post and its Democratic supporters obviously have their hearts and sympathies in the wrong place – with people other than Americans. And they still wonder how Trump, with his “America First” message, won. Amazing.

Massive academic cover-up concealing a near-total collapse of ocean food chains … mass death to humans will follow /collapsiforniacom/2017-04-03-massive-academic-cover-up-concealing-a-near-total-collapse-of-ocean-food-chains-mass-death-to-humans-will-follow.html Mon, 03 Apr 2017 16:40:41 +0000 Marine fish provides 15 percent of all animal protein consumed by humans. Unfortunately, we may not have the luxury of eating fish much longer. While academics are forbidden, under threat, to share their findings on the actual health of the Pacific Ocean, stories of blue deserts void of life are popping up along the West Coast and other coastal regions around the world.

The oceans are slowly dying, and with them, a significant part of our food supply will disappear. Since the number of smaller marine life dramatically reduces every year, bigger predators are starving to death. The causes of the recent mass strandings and die-offs of marine life are numerous, ranging from overfishing and climate change to plastic pollution and radioactive contamination.

As bad as all of this sounds, if you’re relying on the mainstream media for your news, you may not be aware of this growing issue that is threatening our food chain.

The great collapse of the Pacific Ocean food chain

A massive cover-up is ongoing about what might turn into the greatest marine extinction since “The Great Dying” 251.9 million years ago. Lately, heartbreaking stories of hundreds of millions of salmon that are dying before they make it back to their spawning place and record numbers of whales getting stranded on our beaches are finding their way to the public.

In the past year and a half, scientists recorded a collapse of several dozen food chains within the Pacific Ocean. Authoritative figures in Vancouver, however, estimated that number may be closer to the hundreds or thousands then the reported dozens. (RELATED: Follow more news about the food supply collapse at

“It’s not just Pacific salmon that are dying[;] in the North Pacific all forms of ocean life are being reported dead and dying in stunning numbers. Hundreds of dead whales, the largest numbers ever seen, more being found dead on beaches in a single year than in previous tens of years, all reported to having been found in emaciated condition,” explained Russ George, a salmon savior with over 40 years of hands-on experience in restoring trees and oceans, on his website.

Fake media and government black out

The evidence is clear, yet many scientists, media, and governments remain silent. According to some skeptics, the world may be headed to another “Permian Mass Extinction” or “Great Dying.”

According to Armstrong Economics, present CO2 concentrations have reached 400 ppm. While this is nowhere near the 2000 ppm which caused the Great Dying, other factors in today’s world are contributing to environmental changes that are also threatening our marine life and food chain. Rising temperatures and increased UV radiation reaching the Earth may also have something to do with it.

While CO2 and rising temperatures are possible explanations for the massive die-offs happening right now, there are others who believe the nuclear disaster in Japan is to be blamed. Radioactive particles can accumulate in predatory species at the top of the food chain, humans included. Especially top predators, such as the Pacific Bluefin Tuna, are at risk because they consume numerous amounts of smaller prey along with the radioactive particles they have accumulated in their bodies.

Since 2012, a year after Fukushima’s nuclear accident, reports showed that tuna, among other fish species, caught off the coast of California tested positive for radiation. (RELATED: Read more news about Fukushima at

Each day more signs are emerging that our ocean and world is slowly dying. We’re living in perilous, unstable times that may affect every living thing on our planet. Nonetheless, media and governments don’t see any harm in remain surprisingly silent.
