The Weekend Shock Letter for May 9th, 2020

[EDIT: I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT I GOT THE TITLE WRONG! THANKS FOR CATCHING THIS STEVE. – JL]

I’ve been struggling to find a happy medium between deep-dive articles and videos that I’m doing now, and the news analysis that I used to do. Both are needed, but there are only so many hours in the day to do something like this.

Hopefully, this represents that ‘happy medium’.

We’ll see.

The events that we see now, will lead to the complete collapse of civilization as we know it. And, you need to put each of these events into a proper perspective of that collapse. You need to recognize what you are seeing in today’s headlines.

So, let’s go look at those headlines.

(I still can’t believe that I put June instead of May. Did the hot weather get to my brain?)

————————————

Last week, the Missus and I moved. The demonic oppression emanating from the temple next door had gotten too much for Mrs. Little, and it was time to find a place with fewer demons nearby. Yes, demons. I kid you not.

I wasn’t as aware as she was, of what was happening because I can’t speak more than just a few words of Chinese, but she understood what they are saying at their demon worship services – and the significance of what they were saying – while I did not. I guess that you really can be blessed by not knowing what people say. So, we moved because Mrs. Little needed to.

But, now that we are in the new place, I have come to realize that I had needed to move, also. The new place doesn’t suffer from the same amount of dark, evil oppression, and I can feel the difference. So, I had needed this move, too, but didn’t know it.

So, I guess that I need to take back all the grumpy grumbles that I afflicted Mrs. Little with, as we did this move. Of course, she knows that every move is hard on me, so she cuts me a lot of slack when we do something like this.

But, the Missus is going to get some extra hugs from me, to try and make up for my grumpiness.

The other interesting thing is that you really can get used to having demons around, to the point where you don’t notice them anymore. But, that’s a story for another time.

On the plus side, I do have a family of sparrows that have taken up residence not far from my window, in our new place. Mr. Sparrow likes to stand outside and chirp at me and anyone else who gets too close. He’s not the smartest fellow in the world, but he’s one of the ‘good guys’. Chirpy sparrows are a great improvement over the demons that were being worshiped near the old place.

All of that might be the reason why I’ve been inspired to try and restart my weekend review of the important articles that I’ve seen – and why they are important. I was sorry to give that up a couple years ago, because some of the articles that I see every day are important – so important that you need to see them too. So, I’m going to try and get back to doing that again.

Lord willing, in the future, this weekly review of important articles will go out every Saturday morning (US time).

 

THE MOST ESSENTIAL LINKS

So, let’s get into it, starting with the most essential links.

2032 – How Do We Approach Uncharted Waters? | Armstrong Economics

This quote at the end of this short post is startling:

Make sure you buy one year’s worth of food in cans. If you have the space to do vertical farming, it might come in handy in the years ahead.

I have never heard Martin say ANYTHING like this. EVER. This is completely without precedent, and I’ve been reading his stuff for years.

Please, let this be the alarm bell that gets you started in preparing for the difficult days ahead. Food is going to be expensive. So, for the canned foods that you normally consume, buy lots of extra. And, keep buying it. Those of you in America have the luxury of relatively cheap canned goods, so buy as much as you can.

For those of us in places like Taiwan… we’ll just have to do the best that we can.

 

And, this Saturday afternoon – Taiwan time – I saw this link as I was looking over the final links that I wanted to put into this Weekend Shock:

Why farmers dump food and crops while grocery stores run dry and Americans struggle | Fox News

This link will challenge you to think a bit to see its significance. And, while I will try and help you think about this, I want you to learn to think about this for yourself.

First, notice what this article says about American society:

50% of all food goes to restaurants, hotels and institutions.

Is that natural?

This demonstrates an incredible centralization of American society. And, it wasn’t this bad, when I was growing up. Of course, the ’60s and ’70s were a hard time for most people, and that had a big impact on whether or not you decided to take your family to a restaurant.

For my family, it was a big deal to go to McDonald’s.

Now, American society is so wealthy and affluent, that half of all food is consumed outside of the home. Of course, that’s not the whole picture, since there is a segment of society where kids starve if they can’t get a school lunch. And this brings us to talk about the poor.

This disruption of the restaurant and hotel food chain means that the wealthy are showing up more often in grocery stores. The poor, who cannot afford to go to restaurants for their food, are forced to compete with the wealthy who don’t mind buying up whatever they want.

What happens when there are more people wanting to buy the same amount of food?

Prices go up.

Depending on where you are, this might not have happened yet, but it’s coming. And, I believe that this is why Martin Armstrong is telling people to buy canned food. Prices ARE going to go up.

Now, there’s one more aspect that you need to put into your calculations:

What happens when farmers are forced to dump food and bury their livestock?

Farmers live on low wages and paper-thin profits. If they have to dump their product, they lose what little profit they had.

Will they have enough money to buy seed to plant for the next year?

Will the be able to pay for much-needed tractor repairs?

Will they pay the lease on the extra 100 acres that they planted last year?

More importantly…

Will they go out of business… permanently?

Add to this the financialization of agriculture. Over the decades, a complex system of futures markets, land leases and loan agreements has arisen to help farmers produce as much food as possible.

What happens when that financial system collapses, with the rest of global markets?

Right.

Less food.

Some of us could stand to have a bit less food to eat. I know that I need to lose a few kilos. But, the desperately poor are going to be hit hard – as well as the less desperately poor.

The core of the article focuses on how difficult it is for distribution systems to change course as things change. And, the American distribution system WILL make the changes needed as we move into the Greatest Depression. But, those changes won’t happen fast enough to save the farmers that are the most desperate.

The damage will be permanent, and then… everything will get worse.

Please, stock up on canned food.

 

Elvis Was King, Ike Was President, and 116,000 Americans Died in a Pandemic – AIER

The article starts out like this:

The year was 1957.

Elvis’s new movie “Jailhouse Rock” was packing the theaters. The last episode of “I Love Lucy” aired on television. The show “West Side Story” held tryouts in Washington, D.C., and opened on Broadway in September. Ford’s new car the Edsel rolled off the assembly line. The Cold War with Russia was on and “In God We Trust” appeared on U.S. currency. The first Toys R Us store opened.

Also that year, the so-called Asian Flu killed 116,000 Americans

The author goes on to say this:

The population of the U.S. at the time was 172 million, which is a little more than half of the current population.

That means that the Asian flu killed the equivalent of 230,000 Americans in today’s terms. Yet, we are freaking out as if this were the Black Death.

And then, he says:

What’s remarkable when we look back at this year, nothing was shut down. Restaurants, schools, theaters, sporting events, travel – everything continued without interruption. Without a 24-hour news cycle with thousands of news agencies and a billion websites hungry for traffic, mostly people paid no attention other than to keep basic hygiene. It was covered in the press as a medical problem. The notion that there was a political solution never occurred to anyone.

So… the question is …WHY?

Why did America react to a pandemic that killed the equivalent of 230,000 Americans, in such a peaceful way?

The difference is values. They had them, and we don’t. Not anymore.

We’ve destroyed our values. Our faith. Our communities. We have become a wicked and evil generation, and the Bible gives us some insight:

The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.

 – Proverbs 28:1

’nuff said.

 

Surviving 2020 #1: Bug-Out Bunkers, Taoism and the Warring States

Charles Hugh Smith is one of my favorite writers. He knows what he’s talking about, and is not afraid to share what he knows. But, this article is especially interesting.

Here’s one paragraph from his article:

A common thread within most discussions of surviving bad times–especially really bad times–runs more or less like this: stockpile a bunch of canned/dried food and other valuable accoutrements of civilized life (generators, tools, canned goods, firearms, etc.) in a remote area far from urban centers, and then wait out the bad times, all the while protecting your stash with an array of weaponry and technology (night vision binocs, etc.)

If that’s you, you REALLY need to read this article, because he shows that this kind of plan is a really, Really, REALLY bad idea.

Charles Hugh Smith grew up in the mountains, in areas that most ‘survivalists’ will want to retreat to, when bad times come. Mountain boys like Charles called people with ‘remote retreats’, Flatlanders. And, he has this to say about their ‘retreats’:

Your hideaway isn’t remote to us; this is our valley, mountain, desert, etc., all 20 miles of it, or what have you. We’ve hiked around all the peaks, because there’s no reason not to and we have a lot of energy. Fences and gates are no big deal, (if you triple-padlock your gate, then we’ll just climb over it) and any dirt road, no matter how rough, is just an open invitation to see what’s up there. Remember, if you can drive to your hideaway, so can we. Even a small pickup truck can easily drive right through most gates (don’t ask how, but I can assure you this is true). If nobody’s around, we have all the time in the world to lift up or snip your barbed wire and sneak into your haven. Its remoteness makes it easy for us to poke around and explore without fear of being seen.
 
What flatlanders think of as remote, we think of as home. If you packed in everything on your back, and there was no road, then you’d have a very small hideaway–more a tent than a cabin. You’d think it was safely hidden, but we’d eventually find it anyway, because we wander all over this area, maybe hunting rabbits, or climbing rocks, or doing a little fishing if there are any creeks or lakes in the area. Or we’d spot the wisp of smoke rising from your fire one crisp morning, or hear your generator, and wonder who’s up there. We don’t need much of a reason to walk miles over rough country, or ride miles on our bikes.

Kids like Charles Hugh Smith used to be, will find you and your stuff. And they will tell others of what they’ve found. And, if the people living on the mountain or valley that you’ve retreated to… if they’re the kind of psychopaths that some people can be …they come and take your stuff and kill you in the process.

There actually is a better idea, and Charles gives it to you:

Community.

I’ve talked about that for a long time, and it’s time for you to be thinking about that. You will not survive the dark days ahead if you aren’t a part of a community of people willing to help each other out.

You cannot do it on your own.

Just read the article and see if I’m wrong.

 

 

A GREAT COMMENT FROM A READER

Omega Shock gets great comments and questions, and I’ve been really blessed by all the input. And, reader input often gives me a view of what’s happening on the ground that I can’t get, since I’m in Taiwan. And, a reader who goes by the moniker, DRG, left this excellent comment from this post:

Learning Wisdom: Why the Wuhan Coronavirus is NOT a Bioweapon
https://omegashock.com/2020/05/06/learning-wisdom-why-the-wuhan-coronavirus-is-not-a-bioweapon/

Here’s what DRG had to say:

I was at the grocery store today and the National Enquirer headlines were screaming CORONAVIRUS IS A CHINESE BIOWEAPON!!!!!!

I don’t believe that, but millions of unthinking knee-jerk emotional reactionaries do, which gives me a peculiar glee in contemplating how the CCP must be enjoying the fruits of their incompetence.

If only it were possible to embarrass our own incompetent government, but they are so far beyond rational behavior I have no words. Beyond shame or any concept of it. They have pushed the world into mass starvation and they don’t even care. They are so stupid, or arrogant, that they think this somehow will not affect them. Once you have plowed under your crops and slaughtered all your livestock and dumped them in a landfill, no amount of helicopter money will make them reappear. It astonishes me that none of the PTB seem to get that. Even Martin Armstrong, who surely must be worth multiple billions, understands that you cannot eat money, not even his own, and is urging people to stock up on at least a year’s worth of food in CANS. He always specifies CANS. Things might get so chaotic that even our power supply cannot be taken for granted. Here, in the Entitled States of America, the grocery stores are beginning to announce limits on meat purchases ‘because of the meat shortage’, which was previously not openly acknowledged. Articles would say we have “reserves” in freezers, but if examined closely the facts are that it’s only a week or two supply at most. That was a week or two ago I read that. Now I am seeing these announcements from the stores.

I know I will suffer right along with everyone else, but I can’t help wondering what will happen when the inevitable results come home to roost and everyone has to face them. All you people who refused to go to work at the meat processing plants, and protested, and got them shut down, and the unions that made it all but impossible to reopen, is starvation better than taking a risk no worse than going to the (now half empty) grocery store along with everyone else? Are you glad to stay home and no longer have a job, or health insurance, or unemployment, and the result of all this being that you and your family have next to nothing to eat? The dairy farmers had to dump their milk. The egg farmers had to slaughter the chickens that laid the eggs, because without a market for their eggs they had no money to feed the chickens. And there were not meat processing plants available to make use of all this, so all those egg-laying hens went in a landfill along with all those millions of hogs. There’s a little more flexibility with cattle but not much.

And, do not tell me about ‘unacceptable risk’. Most people exposed to the virus have no symptoms, but everyone who starves will die. There’s a bit of a difference. I am a nurse and have been taking care of coronavirus patients for the past 3 weeks full time. They are young, and the worst symptom any of them have had is a slight temp. Many more in the same facility are positive but have no symptoms at all. How about if I quit going to work? I have a nurse friend, early 30s, fit, never smoked a day in her life who got deathly ill from it. Even at 65, nothing appears to make me sick, no matter what I do. But you never know. I want to scream at everyone to grow up and accept the fact that life involves a certain amount of risk and just deal with it. The human race (after the fall) would have starved and gone extinct in a single generation if no one was willing to take the risk inherent in a primitive hunting expedition. Which is easier, going to work and risk exposure to a virus, or face a wild ox with nothing but a sharp stick? You’re here only because your ancestors took on a LOT of risk, and survived. Do you want to feed your family or don’t you?

 – DRG

Over the years, DRG has consistently left extremely insightful comments. And, if she decided to write articles, I would certainly be publishing links to them – or, just publishing them outright. And, she’s not alone in leaving great comments and questions.

Chris-from-Poland, Mangledman, Jennifer, T2L, and so many others have all had a big impact on Omega Shock. If you leave a comment or a question, I will do my very best to personally respond.

NOTE: To protect the integrity of the site, comments are not published immediately. However, I always try to get them published within 24 hours. A lot of evil tries to get into the comment section, and I just cannot allow that. I will stand before God one day and answer for what appears there.

Okay, what else…

I’m in the middle of writing the next installment of the ‘How We Got Here’ series. The first installment, is this:

How We Got Here, Part 1: The Tragic Tale of Huang YanLing and COVID-19
https://omegashock.com/2020/04/27/how-we-got-here-part-1-the-tragic-tale-of-huang-yanling-and-covid-19/

Part Two is tentatively titled:

How We Got Here, Part 2: The Fear, The Money and The Power

We’ll see if God lets me finish it.

 

As for the rest of the links that follow in this post, I’m just out of time. But, if you see something below (or above) that you think needs some extra input, please leave a comment. I always appreciate what Omega Shock readers have to say.

Yours in Christ,

  1. John: — You need to change the title of this article. It is the shock letter for MAY 9th, 2020, not June 9th, 2020.

  2. That one on the idiocracy experiment, including discussions of Milgram’s and Asch’s experiments, is incredibly apropos. We who feel compelled to scream at the herd must look at what this means: we can scream until we are blue in the face, and the herd will still behave like a herd. It’s been proven. All sleazy politicians and other con men are born intuitively knowing this, and with no conscience to prevent them taking full advantage.

    Just like Martin, regardless of how accurate his 30+-year-track-record has been, regardless of how he alone has consistently predicted the things that all the other prognosticators stumble and crash over, never has to worry about everyone “getting it” and for the herd behavior in the markets to just STOP. He will just continue to get hate mail from morons and just sigh and shake his head all the way to the bank.

    But be sure to stock up on canned food.

    • I feel a bit hoarse just reading that. But yes. Having just read through the Book of Judges, I begin to feel like this job is Sisyphean. Push the rock up the hill… almost to the top …down comes the rock again. But, like Ezekiel, we MUST give warning about what we know. So, don’t stop screaming, DRG. – JL

  3. John,

    I don’t know if this would help with your busy schedule but I read articles online at least 2 hours everyday. I could send you links to various articles/topics of use to you for future posts.

    On a side note, what you’ve said for a while now about the comparison between judgment coming to America and Sodom and Gomorah really stays with me. I keep telling my wife I just don’t think we’ll come back from this. Maybe a short lull for a few months and then things really snowball.

    Everyone in America now lives as though they are living a reality show, and they are the stars! They do not seem to care or want to understand what is coming. The new trend is for Americans to show off their newly ordered, personalized face masks. And I guarantee in a month or so people will be going on TV or extolling their virtues and strengths as the heroes that they are to have survived COVID 2020. The inspirational social media posts and YouTube videos will be produced by the millions! I don’t have any social media, but my wife has Facebook to keep in touch with all of our family (we live far from all of our family). And recently, I have gotten onto Facebook to check the COVID updates from our home state. It truly appalls and enrages me to see how narcissistic and self-absorbed Americans have become! They truly believe other people are interested in what meal they just had to eat, what craft they are doing, when they mowed the lawn, what eye liner they are wearing, what intimate, personal thought they are sharing with another, ad nauseum, needs to be shared with any and everyone who will listen! And don’t get me started on the constant staring at their cellphones in public!

    They stare at them at the dinner table, the playground, in the car, on a date, at the beach (what’s better than watching dolphins breaching the ocean waves at sunset) over a freaking Facebook post!? Better than that, what’s better than just living in the moment or taking a bunch of selfies or “group” selfies? Didn’t those used to be called photographs?

    We won’t even have to worry about the Chinese invasion or the Pre-Trib Rapture because no one would even notice..

    P.S. I found myself driving through a forest fire the other day. It was late afternoon and the smoke was so thick that the sun was almost blotted out. I told my wife and kids to close the windows, the vents and shut the air conditioning off while we drove through. The fire was just about at the road on a 4 lane highway. As we are driving through, we notice people pulling over on the side of the road to get out and take pictures and videos. Again, smoke thick enough to block out the sun, fire about to jump to our side of the road where they are pulled over. We got out just in time, but no selfies or videos to be had. I guess that’s why I’m not that popular. Maybe Elon Musk’s Neurolink Chip won’t be so bad after all…

    Dan B.

    • Hi Dan,

      You ‘get it’. We are a society that has no one to worship but themselves. We’re all about self-love and not love for each other. And, that reminds me of of Jesus said in Matthew 24:

      And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

      – Matthew 24:12

      Thank you for the offer of links, I’m always glad to receive them. How links get published and commented on will depend on which direction my mind is going.

      That was a great comment, Dan. It’s good to see a brother with his eyes open.

      Yours in Christ,

  4. John,

    In my prior ramblings I forgot to mention H.R. bill 6666, Patent Number 060606 for Bill Gates COVID vaccine or the bioluminescent Luciferase that is in the vaccine to be used as the delivery method. Science isn’t my background, so I don’t have the words or understanding to describe it. I just can’t see how any of this is coincidental, do you? Not to mention the nonsense coming from local governments like in Knoxville allowing churches to start up but banning them from singing, having Bible studies, taking communion or baptisms. And just watch and see as so many churches will bend over backwards to accommodate just as my church did even before the lockdown was ordered. Go figure, I decide to start attending a church regularly again, and this is the nonsense I see. I may just social distance from American Churches for the duration of the Tribulation! Thanks again for your hard work!

    Sincerely,

    Dan B.

    • Hi Dan,

      One of the people that I recommend watching on a regular basis is John Haller. And, he made a comment on this that I thought was a good answer:

      ‘Are they yanking our chain’?

      And yeah, I think that this is what they’re doing. They know that the Christians will go berserk over anything with 666 in it – or lucifer. This doesn’t mean that we should ignore what they are doing, but don’t let them yank your chain.

      Again, watch John Haller. His most recent prophecy update is here:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Af5Ucq0m-rk

      It’s a good one.

      Thanks, Dan. Keep up the good work.

      Yours in Christ,

  5. Can stuff make jam, Preserves, kraut, your favorite vegetables, hide a fruit tree somewhere. Mr. CH Smith sounds like me, only I didn’t have mountains, I had miles of riverbottom under mature oaks in Illinois. There won’t be places to hide without community. Perimeters need watched 24/7 and that takes a larger group. I collected tools for years to this end, and being unable to store them all, GOD kinda says I won’t need them. (It all happens for a reason) I have many thoughts on locations even for nomadic lifestyles on the run. Even a pile of scat lets know if someone is around. History teaches us much. Guns and ammo are worthless once rooted away from them, and one can only carry so much. I found out mothers day we are forbidden to slaughter our own livestock. You bleebat??? Only deer! (Facepalm) when did these illegitimate rodents slide that in. In the event of teotwaki, if you can drive there the gov can put armor on your doorstep, let alone 3 pickups can put a lot of people close. Rustling is already starting in the Dakotas, and this is the beginning. (Dumbunnies took the bull). Remember Solzhenitsyn said, “We shoulda met them at the door”! Charlie Daniels said, “Don’t like guns, be prepared to dtand behind someone who does”! It begins.

    • Hey Mangledman,

      Illegitimate rodents?

      Sir, you are giving rodents a bad name, comparing them to such poly tishuns!

      I think that it was DRG who let me know that rodents are far better people than the morons who rule over us. So, I’ve stopped referring to them as having the ‘morals of a rodent’ – since rodents actually DO have morals.

      What a sick and twisted world to live in.

      I’m sorry to see that cattle rustling is on the upswing. Not good. May they be trampled by that bull.

      When things go really south, any group that you are will be glad that you are there, MM. Keep up the good work.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  6. The “powers that shouldn’t be” cannot be compared to any animal. Animals kill to satisfy hunger and propagate their species; everything they do is to that end. These things (I cannot call them people) are Satanists, pure and simple. Controlled by their greed and lust for power.

    We are told to expect food shortages, especially meat. But exports to China are increasing (Reuters link below.) Can we say “Holomodor?”

    This entire world system is of the evil one and is being more clearly revealed each day HR 6666? Patent 60606? What more proof do we need to see that no government “official” will come to our aid? They are tightening the net over us for enslavement and death, using trauma-based mind control to break any resistance. As the Bible says, they will prevail for a time, but their destruction will be swift and final at the appointed time. God will have the last word.

    May our Lord Jesus Christ strengthen, protect and bless you and your wife through these horrid days.

    Sally

    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-usa-meatpacking-an-idUSKBN22N0IN

    • Hi Sally,

      The good news is that we are still fairly far away from the Antichrist and anything like what Stalin did to Ukraine, during the Holodomor. That doesn’t mean that it isn’t coming. It is. And, we might see a version of Stalin rise in America before it all falls apart.

      And, fall apart, it will. Only after that will the Antichrist rise.

      As for the link, there is some difference between Smithfield and other companies. Smithfield is owned by a Chinese company that is probably connected to the Chinese Communist Party. So, Smithfield’s exports to China are logical. Disgusting, but logical.

      My biggest fear is over the countries in the world that are in danger of real starvation due to the decline in agricultural output. They will really suffer, and far too many will die.

      Yes, these are horrid days, and they will only get worse. Thank you for your blessing upon me and the missus, Sally. We really, really appreciate it.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
