The Common Sense Show
by Dave Hodges
It is easy to interpret the signals of our economy from afar when we see people driving cars everywhere and we tend to think that our economy is not that bad.
The fact remains that 40 years ago Americans owned those cars that we see them driving. Today, we are renting them as 40% of us are leasing our vehicles.
As we drive up and down our neighborhoods, we see people living in houses and we lie to ourselves as use this as a false barometer to convince ourselves that everything is OK. However, many of these homes we see people living in, have lost all of their equity.
The logical answer to the question “When will we have a depression?”, should be answered by stating “We have an $19 trillion dollar annual deficit and that is the good news. We have $240 trillion dollars of debt from unfunded liabilities and we have a stunning $1.5 quadrillion dollar debt.
So, you better grab all the food, water, guns and ammunition that you can and run for the hills, if you are able”! But as long we see people driving in cars and living in houses, most Americans are gong to deny the truth.
Yet, I feel compelled to speak the truth because I might be able to get one more person to take the steps necessary to help increase the odds of their survival in response to what is coming. History shows that one can count on six things occurring following the collapse of the dollar.
The Last Great American Garage Sale
On multiple occasions in this column, I have thoroughly documented the following facts which demonstrate that the banksters are stealing our assets in preparation for them to economically survive what is coming:
1. The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that when you put money into the bank, you have transferred ownership of that money to the bank. This ruling represents government sponsored theft in the highest order, yet most of us are unaware that this happened.
2. The G20 nations declared the money in your bank account to not be money. Therefore, the FDIC insurance for your savings.
3. The MERS mortgage fraud is ongoing and homeowners are still having their homes stolen without legal justification.
4. The Federal Reserve, in 2012, began to print money to the tune of $40 billion dollars a month in order to purchase mortgage backed securities.
5. The banksters have practiced stealing the secured accounts of American in the MF Global (MFG) scandal, resulting in the loss of $6.3 billion dollars of secured investment funds. Nobody went to jail.
6. In April of 2013, the banksters are manipulating the price of gold as evidenced by the actions of “Goldman Sachs who told their clients earlier that they recommend initiating a short COMEX gold position.” After investors were duped into panic selling, the banksters bought up massive sums of gold. The banksters were buying gold while getting out the American Stock Market and the megabanks. Why? Because the dollar is on the verge of collapse. This manipulation is continuing today. Gold and silver are being kept artificially low. NOW, is the time to buy!
7. The banksters have signaled that they were no longer attempting to gain control of any more gold as they began to repatriate gold with their rightful owners in Europe. This means that the crash could happen at any time.
The only thing left to do is for the banksters to steal your bank accounts. The correct “crisis” will bring about the collapse of the dollar now that the wealth transfer has largely been accomplished.
What America Will Look Like Following the Collapse of the Dollar-Five Things You Can Count On Happening
The aftermath of an economic collapse can take different forms, however, history demonstrates that there are some universal things you can count on:
During the Great Depression (1929-1941),the growing number of homeless people in America began to live in communities with cardboard boxes as their only shelter. The communities took on the name “Hooverilles” in reference to the President that most Americans blamed for the Great Depression.
Today, as the economy collapses, a new homeless class will be created and they will come from the former middle class. A large number of Americans own property. This will shift to a large amount of properties will subsequently be owned by the few and America will witness the introduction of feudalism to our country. This is why the Federal reserve has been buying $40 billion dollars of mortgage backed securities every month.
Did you know that the New York City homeless shelters are filled with people that have full-time jobs? It has already started.
2. Dramatic Food Shortages
Because of “Just In Time” deliveries, the American food industry operates on quick and multiple deliveries and survives only as the result of the rapid payment of invoices. As the failing economy reaches to service industry, most of these business will fail in very large numbers. Who then, will be delivering the food? Only a fool is not storing food and water.
3. Food Riots
Because of the food shortages, riots and organized gang violence will occur. The military is trained to isolate these areas, but will not intervene. If you call 911, nobody will be answering. This will be the time that you wished you had listened to many in the alternative media because this is the time that America will begin to see a large loss of life.
4. Persecution of Christians
The persecutions of Christians is already taking place as record numbers of Christians are leaving the military because of overt discrimination. In the American military, Christians are being disciplined for sharing their faith. No other religion has such a prohibition.
When Pastor Walter Mansfield, one of the original Clergy Response Team member, told me in an interview that he would be forbidden to mention the words “Jesus” and the “Bible” while ministering in the camps.
Germany is evicting Christians from their homes to make way for Muslim invaders. For example, the UK Telegraph is reporting that 51-year-old German Christian woman, one of many, is being evicted from her home of 16 years to make way for refugees, with shelters already full across the country. On September 1, 2015, she received a letter from her landlord and the local municipality, telling her the building was being turned into a refugee shelter and she had until May to leave. So much for the Syrian exodus being a spontaneous event. It was well planned. Many feel that Christians are being targeted in Germany for home evictions in favor of refugee shelters for Muslims in Germany. With the Refugee/Resettlement program in full swing in the United States, how long will it be until the same thing begins to happen here?
5. Martial Law Will Be Declared
(Editor’s note: War will comprise a 6th element that will accompany the coming events. Because of the enormity of the subject, this development will be covered separately).
DHS and the military has already practiced for this development. Travel will be limited and it will stopped all together in areas where the civil unrest is at its worst.
The 2012 and 2014 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), will allow government officials to “disappear” anyone they want to and for any reason, or no reason at all. The NDAA suspends habeas corpus, provides for indefinite detention and this is done on the premise that certain kinds of Americans are threats (e.g. Second Amendment supporters, Bible-believing Christians). This is where the present harassment of Christians will turn into the outright persecution of Christians.
I think the public has a right to know how its government plans to handle future protests. Is America the new Venezuela, Egypt, or Ukraine? A previously secret document which was leaked online; entitled FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations (PDF).
H-42. Quick-reaction force teams should be established with a minimum response time. Because of the physical nature of riot control, individuals in riot control formations should not carry rifles. Nonlethal attachments should follow closely behind the riot control formation. Lethal coverage must be provided for this entire formation. (See FM 3-22.40.)
H-43. During a nonlethal engagement, the use of designated marksmen provides confidence and safety to those facing a riot. If a lethal threat is presented, the designated marksmen in overwatch positions (armed with appropriate sniper weapons mounted with high-powered scopes) can scan a crowd and identify agitators and riot leaders for apprehension and fire lethal rounds if warranted. Additionally, they are ideally suited for flank security and countersniper operations. (See FM 3-22.40.).

There are more examples, but I think you get the idea. Your government has practiced to subjugate and even murder you in times such as these.
Is there anything that can be done to stop the egregious violations of our civil liberties? The short answer is no! However, there are some things that can be done to mitigate the threat and to soften the landing following an economic collapse. These will be covered, in detail, in a future article.
