Steven Den Beste Lays Out An Optimistic Vision of Our Future…I Lay Out An Alternate Pessimistic Version!

Felt like it was time to repost as Steven Den Beste has the sort of quality mind that demands attention. If you haven’t read this the please go and read the whole thing. Also I have added some more information regarding the EMP threat at the bottom of the post.

Why is this dreadful scenario optimistic? Because it leaves out the fact that Iran…continued at the bottom of this post.

Sleepless night

I had a hard time sleeping last night. I was full of fear. There’s a catastrophe waiting for my country, a precipice over which it may fall. And if that happens, it won’t be recognizeable any longer, for the next twenty years or more.

I’m not talking about a liberal Supreme Court. I’m not talking about automatic tax increases on Jan 1, nor about sequester. This precipice is less obvious, yet far more dangerous.

I think the dollar is going to crash.

There’s a story told about a man who fell out of a window on top of a skyscraper. As he passed the 20th floor he was heard to mutter, “Well, I’m OK so far.” This country is falling, but hasn’t hit the ground yet. When it does, things get very ugly, very fast.

The problem is the deficit. Three kinds of deficits, in fact. There’s our cumulative national debt. No nation in history has ever owed $16 trillion. The second is the budget deficit, which has been over $1 trillion per year for the last four years. The third is our trade deficit.

The only reason that debt service on that $16 trillion hasn’t destroyed us already is that the Fed is holding interest rates down. The reason the annual deficit hasn’t destroyed us yet is that the Fed is “running the printing presses” (only they call it “quantitative easing”) to cover it. But neither of those is sustainable in the long run. The ground is still waiting for us, and we’ll know we’ve hit it when a T-bill auction ends up with a lot higher interest rate than we’ve been paying so far.

It’ll be a cascading failure, once it begins. When T-bill interest rates begin to rise, confidence will begin to fail. The rise will accelerate as bond purchasers begin to price in increasing degrees of risk.

Continued:
Iran will get nukes. Iran has practiced launching Scud Missiles from freighters. Great way to sneak up to a coast eh? Iran has also practiced detonating missiles in the area needed to produce an EMP effect.  A EMP attack by Iran would make the dollar collapse seem like a walk in the park. Some say that Iran would never carry out such an attack after all they are rational actors.

Dr. Peter Vincent Pry was lead staffer for the Congressional committee, and he, too, is worried that Iran could use a nuclear bomb to carry out an EMP attack — on Israel and/or the US.
“Iran openly talks about using an EMP to attack Israel or the US,” said Pry, who is currently executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, a privately funded US group that seeks to educate the public and government leaders about the EMP threat to the US. According to Pry, Iran is actively preparing for an EMP attack. “Tehran has undertaken offshore exercises using Scud missiles fired and positioned in such a way that they exploded in the atmosphere — exactly the method you would use for an EMP attack,” he said.

In an interview this past June, Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, executive director of the successor to the EMP Commission, warned: Given the current state of U.S. unpreparedness, after a nuclear EMP attack that collapses the electric grid and other critical infrastructures, the U.S. might never recover. The Congressional EMP Commission — that investigated the EMP threat for nearly a decade and produced the most definitive analysis of the threat — estimated that within one year of a nuclear EMP attack, about two-thirds of the United States population, about 200 million Americans, would likely perish from starvation, disease, and societal collapse. Iranian military writings openly describe making an EMP attack to eliminate the United States as an actor on the world stage.

Some significant updates to this post…

EMP THREAT from NUCLEAR TERRORISTS –STRATEGIC MOTIVES–

• EMP offers the “biggest bang for the buck” and could cause far more damage—and kill many more Americans in the long run—than an A-bomb exploded in a city.

• 9/11 Commission concludes terror attacks on New York and Washington were calculated not only to maximize casualties, but to damage the economy and for symbolism—all good reasons for EMP.

• Osama Bin Ladin and other terror leaders have called for “spectacular” attacks with WMD including nuclear weapons—EMP attack would be most spectacular.

• EMP attack is the only nuclear option where a single weapon could destroy the entire nation, and so give terrorism victory over civilization.

Presidential Executive Order National Defense Resources Preparedness Is This The Beginning of the End?

UPDATE: Of course the usual sources say this is nothing to worry about…these are the same sources that are standing around telling folks that Obama is stupid, not evil. These are the same sources that seem to be bewildered by his successes so far. They tell us that this Executive Order is nothing new that other President’s did it.  Yea that should make me feel better, the President who ordered the attack on Randy Weaver and WACO and the kidnapping of Elian Gonzalez originally issued this order so everything is A-Ok. Let’s have a little photo montage of how that worked out for a few of us.

There I feel all better…End of Update 1.

Barnhardt: Why The March 16th, 2012 White House Executive Order Is Different

WHY THE NDRP E.O. OF 3/16/2012 IS DIFFERENT
POSTED BY ANN BARNHARDT – MARCH 18, AD 2012 8:46 PM MST

I’m getting really, really sick of these pundits and talking heads on the so-called “right” clucking their tongues at the unwashed masses and telling us that we’re crazy and paranoid to be the least bit concerned each and every time the Obama regime takes another stride toward totalitarianism. And it is EACH AND EVERY TIME.

Let me break it down for Ed Morrissey, and all of the other pundits in that social circle so that you can get your heads around this. We are concerned and even, dare I say it, panicked, because we can see the big picture of the Obama regime for what it is. We can take the totality of the dataset and draw not just a logical, reasoned conclusion, but a conclusion that is supported by centuries – nay millenia – of past precedent.

We are, as Patrick Henry put it, “willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.”

Why is the 3/16/2012 Executive Order worthy of grave concern? Simply put, because of the man and the regime who issued it. This is a man, and a regime that has done the following:

-Sent the Secretary of Defense (Leon Panetta) to Congress to put them on notice that despite the explicitness of the Constitution, the consent of the Congress to wage war will neither be solicited nor required by the Commander in Chief or his regime. The CiC and SECDEF may, if they feel like it and can find the time, MAY inform the Congress of “kinetic military actions” henceforth.

-Declared the First Amendment null and void by mandating that every American must, as a condition of legal residency in the United States, pay for abortions. Mr. Morrissey, being a Catholic, you should understand that what the Obama regime has done is demand your very soul. In order to remain corporeally “free” in the United States of America, you must enter into mortal sin, reject Jesus Christ in totality, turn your back on your Crucified Savior, excommunicate yourself from the Church, and consign your immortal soul to eternal hell. If that isn’t the prohibiting of the free exercise of religion, then nothing is or ever could be.

-Committed acts of war upon the sovereign nation of Mexico and her people, willfully arming narco-terrorists with the intent of using the optics of hundreds if not thousands of brutally murdered Mexicans in order to stir up and justify the overthrow of the Second Amendment to the Constitution. This is textbook sedition.

-Has coordinated with regime cronies in the Legislative Branch to enable the Obama regime to operate for an entire term WITH NO BUDGET WHATSOEVER. In this time, the Obama regime has looted the United States Treasury and debased the currency of the United States to the tune of SEVEN TRILLION DOLLARS, or roughly one-half the gross domestic product.

And so we don’t forget who it is that Obama was palling around with here is FBI informant Larry Grathwohl.

What is this? Are we going to war? Is a war with Iran now inevitable? What a way to insure his re-election, start a big ass war, declare martial law and simply do away with elections?

Executive Order — National Defense Resources Preparedness | The White House

Break Out the Cold Weather Gear…

Just when you thought it was safe to go outdoors we discovered that it was gonna get REAL REAL COOL outdoors. How are your disaster preparations going? Feeling smug that you have a few months of food put away? Got extra boots to last a year or so? Bought yourself some of those cute little aluminum foil space bankys to keep you warm when you get stuck? Well preppers better start upping your game cause if these guys are right everyone north of the Mason Dixon line are gonna be under a WHOLE bunch ice fairly soon! Gotta tell the wife that we can cancel that trip to go snow skiing…fairly soon we will be able to ski down the Mississippi River Bridge in downtown Baton Rouge!

Sun entering an extended "hibernation period"
According to Casey, “The Earth typically makes adjustments in major temperature spikes within two to three years. In this case as we cool down from El Nino, we are dealing with the combined effects of this planetary thermodynamic normalization and the influence of the more powerful underlying global temperature downturn brought on by the solar hibernation. Both forces will present the first opportunity since the period of Sun-caused global warming period ended to witness obvious harmful agricultural impacts of the new cold climate. Analysis shows that food and crop derived fuel will for the first time, become threatened in the next two and a half years. Though the SSRC does not get involved with short term weather prediction, it would not be unusual to see these ill-effects this year much less within the next 30 months.”

Other scientists concur and some see the speed at which the temperatures will drop as frightening.
Casy’s organization has been at the forefront of the climate change controversy, correctly predicting in advance three important changes in the climate that many others missed: the end of global warming cycle (1999), a long term drop in the Earth’s temperatures (starting in 2006 to 2007) the unsettling prospect of an historic contraction of the Sun’s energy resulting in a never-before-seen solar hibernation. The hibernation is now recognized by NASA’s Long Range Solar Forecast through 2022 and as well as the stunning slowdown of sun’s activity.

Experts: Food and fuel shortages imminent as new Ice Age dawns – by Terrence Aym – Page 2 – Helium

So if the monetary collapse doesn’t get us, the solar flare will, and if either of those don’t get us then a terrorist EMP will but if it doesn’t, then we will be overrun by billions of third world refugees as our politicians seek to replace us with compliant, reliable voters who will not be asked to work, or learn the language but they must merely vote for this or that political thug. But if none of those get us then at least we can feel comforted by the fact that it looks like Putin is gonna be a crazed dictator and that Iran really does believe it is the end of times and intends to hasten it with nuclear weapons. Then the ice will come and cover all of our foolishness…

Which brings me to one of my all time favorite quotes…

But not to worry because our politicians are HARD at work…which brings me to another of my favorite movie quotes. Mel Brooks gets it exactly right in this video…EXACTLY!

President Buffoon Part Deux…It Gets Worse

Hey whatever…just found out that President Buffoon sent a video message to Iran asking them to play nice. As bad as this shit is it cannot come close to the buffoonery of a US President sending a video message to another country. Well ok maybe a US President giving a gift of wrong region DVD’s to another head of state equals it but probably not because Great Britain isn’t likely to stick a goddamn nuke up our asses anytime soon, Iran is.

Wow. And it’s, what, a Portuguese water head? (Laughter.) What is it, what kind of dog is it?

THE PRESIDENT: It’s not that. (Laughter.)

Q It’s not that.

THE PRESIDENT: It’s not a “water head.” (Laughter.)

Q Whatever they are, I don’t know what they are.

THE PRESIDENT: That sounds like a scary dog. (Laughter.) Sort of dripping around the house. (Laughter.)

Except it sure didn’t sound like “dripping” — Obama said “tripping.” While making “stumbly” motions with his hands.

Anyway, from Urban Dictionary‘s definition of waterhead:

A person with mental health problems, ie downs syndrome, or retard for the lay person.
Perfunction: Obama Throws Self Under Short Bus

The beclowning of the United States continues…

Head Democrat in the House Admits Iran Fighting the United States…

Pelosi declares that the surge didn’t work! Instead she says that any progress made is due to the goodwill of the Iranians which is sort of interesting considering the US Government has been so coy about the Iranian involvement. Oh well even Democrats can be right twice a day…or is that optimistic? Mind you she is right about the Iranian involvement…she is wrong about why the surge worked. Our country kicked ass. But we need to kick more ass and that ass is Persian.

Well, the purpose of the surge was to provide a secure space, a time for the political change to occur to accomplish the reconciliation. That didn’t happen. Whatever the military success, and progress that may have been made, the surge didn’t accomplish its goal. And some of the success of the surge is that the goodwill of the Iranians-they decided in Basra when the fighting would end, they negotiated that cessation of hostilities-the Iranians.  Hot Air » Blog Archive » Pelosi: Some of the success of the surge is due to Iran’s “goodwill”

Some are wishing that the President rise up and smack this Democrat. Well gee, for what? For admitting what the President refuses to admit publicly, that we are at war with the Iranians? Hell I have been saying this since 241 Marines were blown apart by their proxies the Hezb’allah. The President and his team have been going to lengths to assure us such things as this bit from Tony Snow in a press conference when asked Does the president … believe that this is as much the United States’ war as it is Israel’s war?”, “Why would it be our war? I mean, it’s not on our territory. This is a war in which the United States — it’s not even a war. What you have are hostilities, at this point, between Israel and Hezbollah. I would not characterize it as a war.” Our war? Nah not enough Americans have died yet…we are waiting till they do! Tony Snow. Well okey dokey. Have the President talk to us about Iran and while he is at it have him discuss why he takes pictures with Terrorists?

You will notice in the rotation of my header photo the pictures of the Marines after the explosion. I have not forgotten even though it seems that every US Politician has. ACE and others are in an uproar…I think it is amusing. Democrats are such a funny breed of humans. Just let them talk.

Besides our President having ceded the high ground on the single worst terror attack in history seems uniquely unable to smack anyone around. Heck he even makes a habit of holding hands with the King of a country that everyone in the world understands funds most of the terror.  But ignore me I am a bitter Southerner who thinks that killing your enemies works better than kissing them.
