We have never faced bigger threats to our survival than we are facing right now. It has been five thousand years since we seen anything like the challenges that threaten our future. Any one of them would destroy us, and they are coming down upon us all at once, in one last big shock – an Omega Shock.
And, we are ignoring it.
The Rise And Fall Of The Parasites
The Second Industrial Revolution that began in 1870, brought the techniques and innovations of the past and married them to the steam power created by coal. Manufactured goods became cheaper. Transportation improved. Wealth increased. And, wherever there is wealth, there will be parasites to feed off of that wealth.
We sometimes call them ‘the elites’, but parasite is a better term.
Then came oil and the tractor. With this new innovation in agriculture, farmers didn’t need the extra manpower – which flooded into the cities where the factories were located. Wealth exploded, and it needed to secured and invested. And, this is where the great banks and investment houses took off.
The oil barons had the greatest wealth, and they were the driving force behind America’s banking system and stock exchanges. And, the parasites became more numerous, larger and voracious. But, there was so much wealth for everyone, that the average person didn’t notice the parasites.
Wealth created universities, scientific discoveries, literature, art and bigger government. And, there are few institutions that have more parasites than government. And, when government gets big enough, it goes to war. And, there are plenty of parasites in the Military Industrial Complex.
Again, no one noticed the parasites, since the average person was prosperous. Each generation was wealthier than the previous. But, there were cracks in the economic foundation. The world went off the gold standard in 1971 and replaced it with the petrodollar. Hot money blew up and burst one financial bubble after another, and then came 2008.
It was the big crash. And, the parasites knew that they were in trouble unless ‘someone’ did something. The banking system that most of the parasites had been feeding off of was about to collapse, so the blood suckers threw some of their own ‘under the bus’ and forced the government to step in and flood the system with cash. That flood hasn’t fixed the problem, and the parasites know it.
Collapse is coming, and the parasites know it – at least, some of them. That’s why the Deep State has come out into the open, fighting hard to defend their power. It’s why the banking system has supported ridiculously low interest rates. It’s why the military industrial complex has pushed harder and harder for more and more expensive weapons systems. The list of parasites is long, but when the collapse happens, a large number of those parasites will die – but not before they do their best to take you with them.
Don’t let the parasites take you down.
The Great Financial Collapse
We’ve held off ‘The Great Collapse’ by flooding the system with cheaper and cheaper money. And, by doing that, we’ve made the eventual demise of our financial system ever more catastrophic with each year that we keep it from happening. And we are now a the point where the dam that has been holding it all back is about to burst.
I thought that this dam would have burst a long time ago, but my timing has been off – by years. But, there is one man who is unequaled in his track record for timing financial markets.
That man is Martin Armstrong, and I knew about him back in the ’90s when I was in finance. He was right then, and he’s been continuously right for all the years that I’ve been writing Omega Shock. I thought that the markets would crash, while he said that they would go up. But now, there has been an ominous turn in his predictions.
The financial markets will be fine through 2021. And, he says that this crash will happen in 2022, and I was surprised at how bleak his view of the world has become. Life after the crash will be bad.
Part of the reason will be the parasites that have grown fat off of a corrupt government and financial system. Those parasites will do their best to grab as much money as they can from the average person, to keep their power and wealth. And, as they begin to fail in their attempt, the stronger parasites will throw the weaker bloodsuckers ‘under the bus’.
Eventually, the strongest of the elites – I mean, parasites – will survive to rule what is left. Unfortunately, for them and for us, this collapse will reveal something that has been hidden for more than a decade.
I call it Resource Collapse.
Natural Resource Collapse
The discovery of fossil fuels enabled us to harvest ever greater amounts of natural resources. This cornucopia revolutionized our civilization and ushered in a golden age of communication, education, art, travel, science and incredible technologies.
In fact, it went on for so long that we came to believe that this growth would go on forever. Each generation expected that the next would be bigger and better. We came to believe that any dream was possible.
But, we forgot that there were limits.
We have overshot those limits without realizing it, and history shows us that war is always the result. And, because this challenge is truly global, the wars that have already begun will also be truly global.
Every geologist knows that there are limits to the resources that we are harvesting. The only thing that we are arguing about is when we hit those limits. But, because the world is awash in cheap debt, the true cost of resource extraction has been hidden.
Eventually, the coming financial collapse will unveil this hidden problem, causing what could have been a minor problem into a civilization destroying catastrophe.
For a long time, we have been in ecstasy over the ‘Fracking Revolution’ – a technology invented in 1947 by Floyd Farris and Joseph Clark. And petroleum geologists have pushed off their prediction of Peak Oil to 2030 because fracking seems to have turned our predictions upside-down. Unfortunately, this proves that geologists are lousy accountants.
The problem is that fracking is so expensive that no one is actually making any money doing it. If you sat down and carefully combed through the balance sheets of those companies directly engaged in hydraulic fracturing, you would find that they were all losing money. And, the only reason why they are still in that business is due to cheap interest rates.
If interest rates were higher, fracking companies would no longer be able to pay the interest on their loans, and they would all go bust. Even now, the only reason why institutional investors are buying the bonds issued by such oil companies, is that they are desperate for better interest rates.
My point is that an economic crash will collapse the bond markets, and a collapse in bond markets will destroy the companies involved in fracking. This means that oil production will begin to rapidly decline, because fracked oil wells run dry very quickly.
And conventional oil?
That began to decline in 2005 – which was part of the reason for the ‘Great Recession’ in 2008.
Few seem to remember the price of gasoline before the housing market imploded. When the price of gas got too high, home owners had to choose to either drive to work or pay their mortgage. This meant a rapid rise in housing foreclosures and the almost-death of the banking system.
Did the banking system almost die?
It could have. Lots of the parasite class certainly thought so. But, I think that it would have been a far better thing than is about to happen.
Our world demands an ever increasing supply of transportation fuel and electricity. If that supply stops growing, people get upset and governments fall. And, if the supply begins to shrink, there will be war.
Remember also that all the other natural resources that we depend on, require lots of petroleum to extract. Farmers can’t plant and harvest your food without it. Without petroleum, much of our metals, coal, uranium and rare earths can’t be mined and transported. The windmills and electric cars require lots of petroleum and coal to produce, so we couldn’t have them, either.
Now, it doesn’t mean that all of these natural resources will disappear. It just means that there will be less of it for everyone. And, when we say ‘less’, we also means ‘expensive’. Everything will become more expensive.
Take food. We have calculated that for every one calorie of food that we eat, we are consuming nine calories of petroleum. That’s what it takes to plant, fertilize, harvest and transport your food. So, even a small increase in the cost of petroleum will mean a large increase in the cost of food.
Even without the problem with petroleum, we are predicted to hit the peak the production of a lot of other resources. Coal has already peaked in production and Copper hit its peak in the 2030s. Phosphates peak in the 2030s, also. And, let’s not forget the decline in underground aquifers and the decline in topsoil.
Does anyone see a problem here?

As we increased in wealth, we turned away from God. We turned towards easy belief and easy wealth. Size became important.
And, The Bible?
Well, you didn’t want to read too much of it. It was confusing. It was difficult. It told you things that you didn’t want to hear. It said things like size and wealth were dangerous.
The Bible talked about persecution and difficulty in life, so we turned to people that preached a prosperity doctrine and a pretribulation rapture.
We went on to become indistinguishable from the rest of the world. The divorce rate among Christians is about the same. The abortion rate among Christians is about the same. Most of our pastors have a problem with pornography and adultery – just like the rest of the world. And, our churches have become fixated on money, entertainment and the comfort and size of our church buildings.
Is it any wonder that we are unready for what is coming upon us?
Never before has God’s people been so weak and worldly – except, maybe during the time just before The Flood.
We have rejected God.
The consequences of that…
…are hard to imagine.

Paul Harvey: If I Were the Devil – 1965
And, here is another bit of corruption that infects most churches:
Corrie said it all, and this woman with such a beautiful soul will meet us in heaven with her own crown, for all that she has done.
Will you listen to what she said?
Will you wake up to the truth of the Bible?
We spoke lies to the Chinese Christians and the African Christians, telling them that nothing could possibly happen to them – that the future was bright and glorious, that God would keep them from persecution.
So, when persecution came, they weren’t ready.
The largest solar flare in world history is coming, and it will destroy most of our civilization and kill hundreds of millions – if not billions – of people. And, the evidence for this great catastrophe comes from six prophets.
Each of these great men of God adds a snapshot of that moment in time. And, when you put those ‘snapshots’ together, they form a body of evidence that gives us no room for any other interpretation.
So, read my book, Ezekiel’s Fire.
It’s free, and it may just save your life.
