From Here on Down

SUBHEAD: Keep your head down, your nose clean and your hands busy! Get used to it and thrive!

If you have been watching this website for any length of time you know how we feel about "collapse". It's here, ongoing and accelerating.

There have been several recent newsworthy stories that underline this process and how our continued obliviousness to the situation exacerbates the problems we will face when the decay and disintegration of the regime reach us full-on.

Below are seven examples of what I am calling "smoke signals" that were found in articles I've read in the last day or two. They are about economic collapse and climate change.

Frankly, I do not understand how "main stream media", corporate "flaks" and government "spokespeople" can keep a lid on a revolt from those left below decks in steerage as the bulkheads of this "civilization" fail. I guess it's because "the band plays on" in the form of cable TV, internet access and great cellular reception.

Many Americans won't notice that the music has stopped until Spotify goes silent or there is no Social Security/Unemployment/Pension Fund/or Pell Grant deposit in their checking account.

Smoke Signals

China and the New World Disorder enter very powerful deflationary depression
Deflation and depression are mutually reinforcing, meaning the downward spiral will continue for many years. We have been warning about this dynamic since 2008, and have already seen the liquidity crunch start to play out in many parts of the world. Once it hits critical mass, and it can do so very quickly, momentum will increase greatly.  (

Greek Stocks, Economy Collapse, Suffer Worst Declines In History
As we noted last week, there may be no modern economy left in Greece by the time this is all over as many Greeks have already reverted to the barter system in an effort to grease the wheels of commerce and skirt the frozen banking system. (

Puerto Rico in Economic Death Spiral just Defaulted for the First Time
The default is a historic moment in Puerto Rico's economic "death spiral," a term the island's governor, Alejandro Garcia Padilla, has used. The island is struggling with about $70 billion in total outstanding debt, and its economy is in recession. (

Earth’s Most Famous Climate Scientist Issues Bombshell Sea Level Warning
The study—written by James Hansen, NASA’s former lead climate scientist, and 16 co-authors, many of whom are considered among the top in their fields—concludes that glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica will melt 10 times faster than previous consensus estimates, resulting in sea level rise of at least 10 feet in as little as 50 years.

Bombshell Study Reveals Methane Emissions Hugely Underestimated
The study throws into question countless other estimates of methane emissions from natural gas production through hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, which has been hailed as a low-emission energy solution. (

Global Glaciers Melting up to Three Times Rate of 20th Century
"The observed glaciers currently lose between half a meter and one meter of its ice thickness every year—this is two to three times more than the corresponding average of the 20th century," explained Michael Zemp, lead author of the study and director of the World Glacier Monitoring Service, in a press statement about the report.

Appropriate Responses
Okay, okay - you too smell the smoke and you have been getting yourself ready for a New Word Order for some time. Well now is the time to expect some acceleration of events. As we go into this autumn there is likely to be a "discontinuity" of some sort: A misstep in the Ukraine or Syria; a mistake in the South China Sea or North Korea - something not all together unexpected but a surprise anyway. This event could also be expressed in terrorism on US soil, urban riots or even turning on immigrants.

My advise is don't be fooled. Don't get your undies in a bunch just because Fox News goes ballistic, or you're asked to show solidarity. The system will be playing the public like a violin. They did it for 911 and we danced to the tune. The corn-pone Nazis will be out of the closet and seeking your support. Donald Trump is one and reminds me of Benito Mussolini - the man who lead the Italians into Fascism. Like Benito, the Donald is only the Clown Prince until the real villains take over.

Moreover, playing with the "liberals" like Hillary Clinton or "socialists" like Bernie Sanders is likely to be unproductive if they are seeking to reestablish the "Good Old Days" - when every head of household expected good job with decent wages and a pension. It was never quite that way and it will never be remotely like that again. In the future social justice is going to be all together different than what we expect.

In the new social order we will all be Greeks, and Syrians, and Nigerians. We will all be Mexicans and blacks and immigrants and nomads.

Keep your head down, your nose clean and your hands busy! Get used to it and thrive!
