ISIS Document Reveals Vision of Armageddon

“But it seemed contemptible to him to lay hands on Mordecai alone, for they had told him Mordecai’s nationality, and Haman sought to destroy all the Jews who were throughout Ahasuerus’s entire kingdom, Mordecai’s people.” (Esther 3:6)
A 32-page ISIS document calling for open warfare against non-Muslims has been uncovered in Pakistan and authenticated by retired US Defense Intelligence Agency Director General Michael Flynn and other intelligence officials. The document has been compared to Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf”, the political manifesto in which the Nazi leader outlined his plan for the future of Germany and its Jews.
The ISIS document places the blame for the appearance of jihadi organizations like ISIS on the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. The document declares, “No sooner had the British government relinquished control of Israel, Ben-Gurion, the leader of the Jews, declared the independence of the State of Israel, triggering a global migration of Jews to the Jewish State, and launching the systematic persecution of Palestinian Muslims who had to abandon their homes and migrate.”
The document, titled A Brief History of the Islamic State Caliphate (ISC): The Caliphate According to the Prophet, contains a six stage plan for the development of the Islamic State and for conquering the entire world. 
In a blog post written by Geoffrey Grinder in Now the End Begins, the phases are laid out. The establishment of the Islamic State has already passed through four of its planned six phases and is currently in Phase 5. These are the stages according to Grinder:
Phase 1 “Awakening” 2000-2003: Islamic State calls for “a major operation against the U.S….to provoke a crusade against Islam.” [September 11, 2001]
Phase 2 “Shock and Awe” 2004 – 2006: Islamic State will lure US into multiple theatres of war, including cyber-attacks and establish charities across the Muslim and Arab world to support terrorism.
Phase 3 “Self-reliance” 2007-2010: Islamic State will create “interference” with Iraq’s neighboring states with particular focus on Syria.
Phase 4 “Reaping/extortion/receiving” 2010-2013Islamic State will attack “U.S. and Western interests” to destroy their economy and replace the dollar with silver and gold and expose Muslim governments’ relations with Israel and the US.
Phase 5 Declaring the Caliphate 2013-2016: Not much details offered here. The document just says, “The Caliphate According to The Prophet.
Phase 6, Open Warfare 2017-2020:  Islamic State predicts faith will clash with non-believers and “Allah will grant victory to the believers after which peace will reign on earth.”
Phase 6 calls for open, worldwide warfare against all non-Muslims followed by a messianic vision of a peaceful era. The messianic vision of the document paints a picture of a world in which only believing Muslims remain alive. 
The document’s author uses harsh words to make his point. “Accept the fact that this caliphate will survive and prosper until it takes over the entire world and beheads every last person that rebels against Allah. This is the bitter truth, swallow it.”
Breaking Israel News asked Rabbi Nachman Kahana, author and Torah scholar who lives and works in the Old City of Jerusalem, to comment on the discovery of this document and the threat it represents to Israel. 
In a related story, this brief, threatening video was recently released. Reminiscent of the Crusades, it shows thousands of Muslim soldiers suiting up to do battle with Jerusalem. 
Kahana responded that the Talmud, one of Judaism’s core texts, states that God “will eventually send to the world a leader whose decrees will be as drastic as those of Haman, the villain from the Book of Esther who intended to wipe out all the Jews, in order that we, the Jewish people, will do teshuva (repent) and then the final geula (redemption) will arrive.”

Chinese and U.S. Markets Crashing for Same Reason (The Fed)

The Global Economy Is Entering An Epic Slump | Marc Faber

The World Stands On the Edge of World War III In Multiple Locations

Very close facsimile to what I recently saw in the sky. Was this a sign of things to come?
This is a very close facsimile to what I recently saw in the sky. Was this a sign of things to come?
I cannot recall writing an article which has caused me so much consternation than this one. Last night as my family was returning from dining out near the beginning of twilight, I saw a gigantic cloud stretching endlessly upward and spreading out. It looked just like a mushroom cloud, the kind you would see following a nuclear explosion. Was this an ominous sign, or was this simply a case of personal projection of where my mind is presently at? I may never really know the answer for certain, however, this moment in time is reflective of where I believe the world is at in the present moment.

“History May Not Repeat, but It Sure Does Rhyme”

wwIAs I reflected on the historical importance and relevance of recent current events, I was reminded of Mark Twain’s famous saying about the replication of historical events and I believe that the times we find ourselves living in now, are reflective of the pre-World War I era.
World War I was characterized by an arms race, a race for currency dominance (i.e. during the early part of the 20th century, the race for control of resources manifested in a race for colonial dominance. Today, rld warthis is manifested through the attack on the Petrodollar by the BRICS), and a set of entangling alliances which all but guaranteed war if only two parties were in conflict.
The events of World War I were set into motion with the assassination of Austria-Hungary’s Archduke Francis Ferdinand by an unknown Serbian national. Austria-Hungary was allied with Germany. Serbia was allied with Russia, which was allied with Great Britain and France. And the rest, as they say, was history.

Today’s Possible “Archduke” Hot Spots

There is no shortage of places where the slightest spark could set off World War III, but there are a few leading candidates.
  1. Any location where these is the presence of a military provocation
  2. North and South Korea
  3. Taiwan
  4. Ukraine
  5. Syria

Provocation #1

Tianjin explosion
Tianjin explosion

The Tianjin explosion was waged as an act of war by the United States in response to China’s currency war with the subsequent Yuan devaluation, according to dissident sources from mainland China. Within hours, Mike Adams and I had both reached the same conclusion, that the weapon used to attack China was an American space-based weapon fired in retaliation for a recent Chinese currency devaluation which negatively impacted the dollar
Of course, after the event, the “coincidence theorists” were out in force accusing both Adams and myself of being part of a tin-foil hat conspiracy. When the event was duplicated a few days later, the coincidence theorists are nowhere to be found.

Provocation #2

A duplicate explosion, like the one at Tianjin, occurred at a chemical warehouse in Shandong province in eastern China on August 22, 2015, the People’s Daily China reported. The site is only one kilometer from a residential area. Firefighters were overwhelmed as they attempted to  deal with the explosion. In the present political climate, and with the MO being identical, how can anyone say that these provocations are connected and were carried out for the exact same reasons?
Please underscore these words, anyone who understands Chinese psychology, knows full well that the Chinese will retaliate in greater force than how they were attacked. The Chinese military is very strategic. Do not expect a knee-jerk Chinese reaction, but you can bet your bottom, soon-to-be worthless dollar, that a massive retaliatory strike is coming.

North Korea vs. South Korea

Earlier this week, North and South Korea exchanged artillery fire. South Korea resumed its propaganda broadcasts across the DMZ and North Korea threatened to use nuclear weapons against the South. What could have been looked at as mere blustering, took a serious turn when North Korea prepared short and medium range missiles and pointed them at Seoul. The US and the South Korean Air Forces responded by buzzing the North Korean side of the DMZ. Here is the report. South Korea and US forces stationed on the Korean peninsula have flown eight combat jets simulating the striking of enemy targets in a show of force against North Korea’s war threats amid the ongoing crisis.
Four F-16 fighter jets from the US and four South Korean F-15k fighters joined together on Saturday “to show off the military might of South Korea and the US combined air force power,” an official from South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said.
According to the South Korean official, the air warfare group has deliberately taken the flight route that would “alarm North Korea” and show the “allies’ resolute determination”  in retaliation for the provocation, reported Yonhap News.
For this to “mushroom” into a major confrontation would have taken no more than for a North Korean officer to order the firing of a SAM which could have brought down one of these planes. Meanwhile, the propaganda agenda of RT is in full evidence as they are championing the combat readiness of North Korea and their intention to attack the South as evidenced by the following tweet.

China’s Naval Buildup for War

In the following video, China is seen retrofitting thousands of merchant ships for military purposes so they can be used in the event of a war, another disturbing indication of growing tensions between Beijing and Washington. Alex Jones produced and released this video in June. 

Mythical Invasion of Taiwan by China

I am receiving reports that Taiwan is being fortified beyond present levels which is not surprising given the recent set of events. Everyone’s World War III scenario has China attacking Taiwan.
Below is a fictional account of a Chinese invasion of Taiwan, supported by Russia and her allies, in the year 2055. The date of this video could easily be changed to 2015. These events are telling and it is frightening to think that we are this close to the invasion of Taiwan becoming a reality.

Syria and Ukraine

Earlier this week, Russia moved 50,000 troops to the Ukrainian border. ISIS is still operating in Syria and Putin has repeatedly warned that he will nuke the United States if we invade Syria.


The world is on multiple collision courses with World War III and please remember, it only takes one to begin the holocaust. Realistically, I do not see how the world is going to avoid World War III.
In the next article, I will explore what it would be like to engage Chinese troops and please believe me, that is not what we want to see happen.

Tonight on The Common Sense Show

In the first hour, I interview Bob Griswold about how to survive an economic collapse and increase one’s chances of survival with the coming World War III.
In the second hour, I interview Katy Whelan about recent medical breakthroughs. In the latter part of hour, I am interviewing Jim White about the impending World War III. Also, I have a major announcement regarding the direction of The Common Sense Show.
In the final hour, I am talking to famed economist Joseph Meyer about the stock market, Chinese currency devaluation and the immediate future of the American economy.

Best-selling author and Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn

Author and Bible teacher Jonathan Cahn says he has been so swamped with questions and concerns about the looming end of the Shemitah year on Sept. 13 that he can’t answer them all.

“We have been deluged with people calling, emailing, asking questions from all over the country, wanting to know what’s happening. So we decided to put out a video,” Cahn told WND via email.

In the message, posted to YouTube, Cahn calls for a period of national prayer and repentance leading up to the pivotal month of September.

He also issued a new warning about a “desecration” that often precedes judgment and is already present in American society. He calls for Christians to prepare for persecution and get ready to stand for God in a coming period of strife that will increasingly be devoid of “gray areas” or middle ground.

In the video, he says his main theme continues to be that of judgment visiting America. This will bring a “shaking” in the financial and economic realms. These tremors may spread beyond the economic realm.

Watch U.S.-Israel relations
The harbingers of coming judgment that Cahn first wrote about in 2012 in his New York Times-best-seller, “The Harbinger,” have continued long past the writing of that story, he said. The Tree of Hope, a spruce or cedar that in the Bible symbolizes a nation’s strength, was planted at Ground Zero in New York following 9/11 but it withered and died. It was finally uprooted on Passover 2014.

The new office tower built to replace the Twin Towers opened earlier this year only to have the first tenants overrun by an infestation of vermin.

But one of the most critical harbingers for America is its relationship with Israel, Cahn said.

“The relations between America and Israel are at its worst. This is a dangerous sign for America. America is now pressing for a deal that Israel says will put Israel in danger. That is also ominous,” Cahn said. “All these things: Israel, the harbingers, the apostasy, the Shemitah, all these things are converging, and we need to take heed now.”

Here comes the pope
Pope Francis, the 266th pope, is also coming to the United States to meet with President Obama on Sept. 23, the 266th day of the year. He will address a joint session of Congress on Sept. 24 and then deliver a keynote speech Sept. 25 at the United Nations in New York. The pope, who has already called for the need for global government to fight climate change and poverty, is expected to give a ringing endorsement to the U.N.’s new global agenda titled “Transforming Our World: 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.” This document was created by a 27-person “high level panel” that consisted of only one American – John Podesta, a member of the elite Trilateral Commission and the former climate-change czar for President Obama.

The Senate is also under a deadline to approve the Iran nuclear deal by the end of September.

Focus on dates, miss the big picture
Cahn implores those concerned about the Shemitah not to focus on dates but on getting their own houses in order. He offers practical advice on how to prepare for the coming “shaking,” both physically and spiritually.

He said he gave dates in his book, “The Mystery of the Shemitah” to show that God often works, especially in economic matters, according to the seven-year cycle given to Moses as Mount Sinai and recorded in Deuteronomy.

While this is something “to be aware of the signs of the times,” the bigger issue for America is that judgment is imminent. The U.S. clearly “crossed a line,” he said, with the Supreme Court decisions on abortion, removing prayer from schools and most recently in its arrogant redefinition of the God-given covenant of marriage.

“The first caution is, God doesn’t have to do anything. He is sovereign. He doesn’t have to work according to our understanding, He is beyond our understanding. Nothing has to happen in September or the autumn. It could be very uneventful,” Cahn said. “And if nothing happens, well then, what will we do? We will praise God, we will be bold for the Lord, we will spread the gospel, we will stand as witnesses for God and we will glorify His name.”

God hasn’t given him any secret knowledge as to what, if anything, will happen on or near the date of Sept. 13 or Elul 29, the once-every-seven years biblical day of reckoning when all debts and credits were wiped clean.

“Either way, I believe a great shaking is coming and it is wise that we be aware,” he said.

Prepare with ‘essentials’ for body and soul
How does judgment come upon a nation hell-bent on going its own way without God?

Cahn said it can come with economic collapse, with man-made and natural disasters, wars or a slow descent into irrelevancy.

Watch Jonathan Cahn’s 18-minute YouTube message in its entirety below:

On the last two Shemitahs, on the exact same biblical "day of remission," which is Elul 29 on the Hebrew calendar, came record stock-market collapses.

Cahn, a messianic Jewish rabbi who leads a congregation in New Jersey, said the months of Elul and Tishrei bring the Feast of Trumpets or Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, also called the Day of Atonement. These are high holy days on the biblical calendar meant to focus one's heart on the mighty judgment seat of God.

"America's apostasy should be enough" for people to take note and be aware that judgment is coming, Cahn said.

He advised people to stock up on "essentials," food, water and other items.

"Are we survivalists? No. We are revivalists," Cahn said. "We are not here to survive we are here to be part of God's revival, his restoration. And we are here not to prepare, simply thinking about ourselves, but to bless others. Worst-case scenario, you can eat your investment. You can use what is essential. But it's wise, anyway."

Financially, he said he would not personally feel secure having investments "linked to the well-being of the stock market."

The U.S. stock market fell 358 points, or 2.1 percent, on Thursday, its worst day in 18 months. The market has shed more than 1,300 points already this year heading into the volatile autumn period.

Cahn said it would be wise to have cash on hand in your home.

A final 'desecration' brings judgment
"This summer, America crossed the line," beyond any line ever crossed before, Cahn said, referring to the June 26 Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court case legalizing same-sex marriage in all 50 states.

"When the Supreme Court struck down the biblical definition of marriage, this was a tectonic event, a seismic change, with ramifications not just about marriage but about the future of the culture, of society, of religious freedom, of persecution, and, I believe, judgment," Cahn said.

He noted a principle in the Bible that before judgment comes there is often an act of desecration.

The prophet Ezekiel, for example, was taken to the temple and shown a vision. The most holy place was being desecrated with idolatry.

"And then he sees a vision of the judgment of Jerusalem, the judgment of the Temple Mount, the judgment of Israel."

Another example comes from ancient Babylon.

"There is a festive party, a celebration to the gods, and the king of Babylon orders that the sacred cups of God be brought into the celebration and they use these sacred cups to drink to the gods," Cahn said. "That is a desecration and once that act is done the sign comes in the form of a handwriting on the wall that proclaims there will be judgment, and judgment comes that night to Babylon."

"Marriage is a vessel of God. It was made by God for God," Cahn said. "It's like a cup, a sacred cup. You cannot take a vessel of God, you cannot take it and use it against its purpose and against God, without desecration. That was an act of desecration for America to strike down marriage. So, another convergence here. This happened just as the Shemitah approached its end."

'The middle ground is disappearing'
Cahn also thought it was significant that every one of the four dissenting justices issued a warning about coming persecution of those, predominantly Christians, who continue to believe in traditional biblical marriage.

"We are watching that begin to happen. The Bible says those who call darkness light will call the light darkness. The grays are disappearing. It is fading to black and white," he said. "The middle ground is fading away. And those who try to stay in the middle, who try to dance in the middle, will find it harder and harder. You cannot dwell there. The time for gray is disappearing. If the darkness is removing the gray to become utterly dark, then it's time for the light to remove the gray in our lives. And become totally light. The time for wavering, living both ways, compromising, not sharing, not living consistently in your faith, is over."

Cahn also shared a lesson from the prophet Elijah. This Hebrew prophet implored the people to stop being half-hearted believers.

"How long will you waiver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, serve Him. If Baal is god, serve him. But choose you this day, whom you will serve," he said.

He said the same dynamic that leads the dark to get darker will lead those who stand for God without compromise to go from light to blazing light, from good to great. We are watching the faith go, and the Supreme Court decision was a milestone, from a cultural faith to a counter-cultural faith, from a status-quo faith to a revolutionary faith. There is good in this. We say we wish we could live in the Book of Acts, well we are going to. … This is going to force us to go either totally dark or totally light."

So how does one prepare for what's coming to America?

"Ground yourself in prayer. Get plugged in, emotionally, intellectually, to the presence of God," he said.

"Decide no matter what the majority does you will follow the Lord. You have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back. God will anoint those who do not compromise. If you want biblical times, you've got it. You want the Book of Acts, it's coming. You want the days of Elijah? It's here. It's time to become the Elijahs of the day. If there's anything in your life that has no business in the life of a saint of God, the time is now, not later, to get it out. Whatever is not in your life that God is calling you to, the time is now to get it in."

Cahn said he made the video on Elul 1. The month of Elul is a time of preparation for the high holy days, a time to draw nearer to God in prayer. It's a 40-day period of preparation, often accompanied by fasting.

"So I am calling for prayer, repentance, to commit this time for seeking God, in your life, seeking God individually, seeking God as a church, seeking God as a Bible study, seeking God as a movement, but devoting this time to be in prayer every day, in special prayer, of repentance, to get right, to get out of your life that which needs to be out and get in what has to be in."

Farah encourages pastors to open their churches on Friday, Sept. 11, to allow both their community of members and their communities at large to gather and pray. There will also be three national repentance conference calls that day, with details at 911dayofprayer.org. Readers can go to the website and sign up to pray. They are also encouraged to let their pastors, congregations, and friends know about this event.

'We are in critical times'
In the Old Testament, which often provides clues or spiritual foreshadowing of things to come under the New Testament, the priests of God had to first get things right in their own lives before they could minister on behalf of others. They would ritually cleanse themselves with water. Only then could they enter the Holy of Holies and intercede for the nation.

"Get to that higher ground, to bless God. This is our time to be ready, no matter what comes in September, autumn, or not," Cahn told his listeners.

"The fact is America is in danger here," he continued. "America is progressing on a dangerous course away from God. And we are in critical times. We are at a crossroads in every way. For the society, the culture, the civilization, the church, to be praying for this time. And to declare we will make up our minds we will not bow down to Baal, we will not compromise, we will not give in to political correctness. No matter what, we will not turn away from God, no matter what anybody says. We will follow the Lord, and His ways, only."

Cahn closes his message with a special blessing of encouragement for those willing to go all-in for God.

Global Crash: What They're NOT Telling You

Immediate Steps to Survive a Stock Market Crash

Image result for How to Survive a Stock Market Crash: “Take These Immediate Steps”

Last week, our stock market began to freefall. By Friday, August 21, the market was down more than 1300 points. Over the course of two days, it dropped further than any single-day crash in American history.

But it wasn’t just the US stock market that had a bad week. According to Zero Hedge, markets across the globe are going to heck on a greased slide:

China’s worst week since July – closes at 5 month lows
Global Stocks’ worst week since May 2012
US Stocks’ worst week in 4 years
VIX’s biggest weekly rise ever
Crude’s longest losing streak in 29 years
Gold’s best week since January
5Y TSY Yield’s biggest absolute drop in 2 years

Stock market crashes are taking place concurrently in 23 different countries.
Updated to add: The stock markets of Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Qatar have just crashed.
Updated to add: The Dow plunged over 1000 points in the first 5 minutes of trading this morning. Some recovery has been made as finance gurus pull out all the stops.

I’m no financial expert, but this seems like a collection of very, very bad signs. It’s time to sit up, pay attention, and be prepared to take immediate actions.

It’s time to pay attention because this could go one of two ways.
This could just be a tremor before the Big One hits. The economic gurus at the Fed could find another way to kick the can a little bit further down the road, giving you more time to get your personal financial situaion under control. Obviously, things just aren’t right, and you can consider this a warning bell.


This could be “it”. If there are no creative, fake-money-from-thin-air remedies left, the market will continue to fall when it opens on Monday. If the market is still dropping, it’s game on.

Take these immediate steps if the market continues to fall.
I hate predictions.

I really cringe when people try to make economic predictions or pinpoint specific dates for impending financial disaster. So please realize I’m not making a prediction when I say this.

Watch the market on Monday. Carefully. Like it’s your job.

If it continues to fall, we could be in big trouble.

If on Monday, the market is still plummeting, it’s time to take action immediately. None of these steps will have long-term consequences if things level out, but they could make your life a whole lot easier if things get worse. Here’s what you need to do immediately in the event of a stock market crash.

Take your money out of the bank ASAP
If you still keep your money in the bank, go there and remove as much as you can while leaving in enough to pay your bills. Although it wasn’t a market collapse in Greece recently, the banks did close and limit ATM withdrawals. People went for quite some time without being able to access their money, but were able to have a sense of normalcy by transferring money online to pay bills or using their debit cards to make purchases. Get your cash out. You don’t want to be at the mercy of the banks.

Stock up on supplies. 
 Make sure you are prepped. If you’re behind on your preparedness efforts and need to do this quickly, you can order buckets of emergency food just to have some on hand. (Learn how to build an emergency food supply using freeze dried food HERE) Hit the grocery store or wholesale club and stock up there, too, on your way home.

Load up on fuel. Fill up your gas tank and fill your extra cansalso. Quite often, fuel prices skyrocket in the wake of a market crash.

Be prepared for the potential of civil unrest. 
If the banks put a limit on withdrawals (or close like they did in Greece) you can look for some panic to occur. If the stores dramatically increase prices or close..more panic. Be armed and be prepared to stay safely at home. (Although this article was written during the Ferguson race riots, civil unrest follows a similar pattern regardless of the cause.)

Be prepared for the possibility of being unable to pay your bills. 
If things really go downhill, the middle class and those who are the working poor will be the most strongly affected, as they have been in Greece during that country’s ongoing financial crisis. This article talks about surviving if you are unable to pay all of your bills.

After the crash, focus on information
Hopefully there’s no need to empty out your bank accounts, stock up on last minute supplies, or lock-and-load for home protection. However, if this is a crisis situation, an actual 1929/2008-style stock market crash, you need to take your preps to the next level.

Information is the key. 
It’s imperative that you learn everything you can so that you know what you need to add to your preps. Do these two things if it looks like the situation is more than a blip:

#1. Bookmark these preparedness websites. (Free)
The internet is a wonderful place, and best of all, this knowledge can be found for FREE! The more you know about crisis situations, the more ready you will be to face them. Some sites are friendlier to beginners than others, so if you stumble upon a forum where people seem less than enthusiastic about helping people who are just starting out, don’t let it get you down. Move on and find a site that makes you feel comfortable. Following are some of my favorites, and the link will take you to a good starting point on these sites. In no particular order:

Following are some of my favorites, and the link will take you to a good starting point on these sites. (Actually, it’s wise to begin increasing your knowledge even if we get a reprieve.) In no particular order:
The Organic Prepper (obviously!)
Nunez Report
Backdoor Survival
Ready Nutrition
Graywolf Survival
Underground Medic
Survival Blog
The Survival Mom
Herbal Prepper
Prepper Website

#2. Build your library. (Small expense)
This is where some money could come into play. Most of the time, people in the preparedness world like to have hard copies of important information. This way, if the power goes out and you can’t access the internet or recharge your Kindle, you still have access to vital advice.

Some of these books are for just such an event, while others are guides to building your self-reliance skills. Commit to picking up a good book each pay period until you have a library to reference during any type of scenario.

The Prepper’s Blueprint: The Step-By-Step Guide To Help You Through Any Disaster (This is the be-all and end-all Bible of prepping. I wish I could put my own book first, but Tess’s book is the most complete compendium out there, broken into easy, manageable steps.)
The Pantry Primer: A Prepper’s Guide to Whole Food on a Half-Price Budget (This is my newest book, which outlines building your pantry while on a strict budget)

The Complete Tightwad Gazette (While this book is about hardcore frugality, trust me, there’s crossover. There are a lot of great suggestions for creating stockpiles on a budget, living simply, and doing things the old-fashioned way. And saving money is always a good idea, so that you can use it to help you become more prepared.)

SAS Survival Guide: How to Survive in the Wild, on Land or Sea (I keep this little gem in my vehicle, my bug out bag, and in my kids’ backpacks. It doesn’t go into lots of detail, but if you find yourself stranded in the middle of nowhere, this small book could save your life.)
The Encyclopedia of Country Living, 40th Anniversary Edition: The Original Manual of Living Off the Land & Doing It Yourself(A compendium of all things self-reliance)

Prepper’s Home Defense: Security Strategies to Protect Your Family by Any Means Necessary (If you can’t protect it, you don’t own it. It’s that simple.)

How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It: Tactics, Techniques, and Technologies for Uncertain Times (By James Wesley Rawles, who many consider to be the “Father” of the modern preparedness movement)

The Prepper’s Pocket Guide: 101 Easy Things You Can Do to Ready Your Home for a Disaster (Quick, inexpensive preparedness steps that anyone can take)

The Survival Medicine Handbook: A Guide for When Help is Not on the Way (It’s vital to have a guide on hand that doesn’t rely on 911 for serious injuries, in the event that you’re completely on your own)

The Organic Canner (It’s awesome to grow your food, but how will you make it last through the winter, particularly during an off-grid scenario?)

Prepper’s Natural Medicine: Written by my friend and colleague, Cat Ellis, this book has everything you need to know about creating your own medicine and caring for your family’s health in the event of a crisis.

Get Prepared Now: Written by the autor of The Economic Collapse Blog himself, this book will provide you with budget-friendly, practical, collapse-specific advice.

Prepper’s Financial Guide: By prolific author Jim Cobb, this book will help you figure out how to function in a post-collapse marketplace.

Be sure to check out used bookstores, libraries, and garage sales, too. Look for books that teach self-reliant skills like sewing, gardening, animal husbandry, carpentry, repair manuals, scratch cooking, and plant identification. You can often pick these up for pennies, and older books don’t rely on expensive new technology or tools for doing these tasks.
Collapse is inevitable
Hopefully this is a brief crash and the market recovers. That gives us more time to prepare, and nearly everyone could deal with a little more time.

However, it’s imperative that you be watchful. This might be the triggering event for our next Great Depression. Be prepared to take action.

This may just be a warning bell, but we all know that it’s only a matter of time until we’re all out of warnings.

Stock Market Panic Explained


Chinese guard at the country’s border with North Korea

WASHINGTON – While representatives from communist North Korea and South Korea have come to an agreement to ease tensions, the Chinese have moved a mechanized brigade to their border with North Korea.

With world attention focused on the stock-market slide prompted by China, the People’s Liberation Army is indicating its concern about the uptick in war jitters on the Korean Peninsula.

East Asian expert J.H. Ahn reports in the Washington, D.C.-based website NK News that there are “significant” military movements of a brigade-size mechanical unit consisting of PTZ-89 tank destroyers in the city of Yanji, China, an autonomous region of Yanbian bordering North Korea.

A Defense Department source told WND on condition of anonymity that Beijing no longer wields the control it once had on the North Korean leadership.

“Kim is doing what he can to take control of his military and that includes his military-to-military relations with China,” he said, referring to North Korea’s Supreme leader, 32-year-old Kim Jung-un.

The concern was punctuated recently when Kim ordered the purge and possible execution first of his uncle, Jang Song-thaek, and then a rising star in the North Korean People’s Army, Gen. Pyon In-son.

Jang, who was Kim’s second-in-command, was a primary intermediary with China. Pyon, who recently was “killed for expressing an opinion different to that of Kim,” represented North Korea in military-to-military talks with China.


Pyon was a swift riser through KPA ranks, achieving a four-star rank, according to the source. He not only was a member of the party Central Committee but was a vice minister of the People’s Armed Forces.

The two leaders’ demise reflects a greater purge of more than 50 high-ranking military officials that Kim has conducted over the past year in an effort to consolidate his power, including control of ties with China, which has frustrated the Chinese leadership.

‘Lips and teeth’
The relationship between Beijing and Pyongyang was once described by the late Chinese leader Mao Zedong as “lips and teeth.” Chinese troops in 1950 descended on U.S. troops at the Yalu River once they had crossed the now infamous 38th parallel.

East Asian sources say that since Kim came to power almost four years ago, relations with China have become increasingly estranged.

To this day, Kim hasn’t visited Beijing.

Relations began to wane during the regime of Kim’s father, Kim Jong-il when China and South Korea established diplomatic relations. Nevertheless, the two nations continued to work together and maintained somewhat close ties.

Under Kim Jung-un, however, there has been a dramatic shift, the Defense source told WND.

He said that unlike past practice, China was absent from the discussions between representatives of North and South Korea at Panmunjom in the demilitarized zone separating the two countries.

He said Kim’s actions were meant to drive a barrier between Beijing and Seoul.

His view was reinforced by John Delury, a professor at Yonsei University in Seoul in a recent interview with Time magazine.

“Beijing has been noticeably, almost painfully, absent from the escalating tension on the Korean Peninsula in the last couple weeks,” Delury said. “Other than anodyne calls for everybody to exercise self-restraint, Beijing has had nothing to say or do to improve the situation.”

Still at war
Despite a truce in 1953, both North and South Korea are technically at war with each other.

The Defense source said China is very concerned about North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons. He said the last thing Beijing wants is a leader of a country with nuclear weapons over which it no longer has major influence.

He said Beijing has sought unsuccessfully to meet with Pyongyang in an effort to halt its nuclear weapons program. Because of the failed talks, he said China is growing impatient with Kim and may no longer want to be a buffer.

Until now, he said, Beijing has regarded itself as political, economic, military and diplomatic shield with the international community, especially from the United States.

In the past, China repeatedly has emphasized to the U.S. the need for talks with North Korea over the numerous crises related to its development of nuclear weapons.

The turn of events were reflected in an Aug. 24 editorial of the Chinese Communist Party daily, Global Times, warning that North Korea may be trying to “strip China of its strength and geopolitical advantages.”

The editorial speculated that the North may have created the latest round of hostilities in an effort to keep South Korean President Park Geun-hye from visiting Beijing.

“Beijing will not be led by the nose,” the editorial added, “and there is no force on the Korean Peninsula that could easily maneuver China.”
