12 Hours Before The End Of The World? That’s All The Warning We’d Get Before A Solar Storm, Says New Report

 

Image source: NASA

Can you cram in 12 hours all the survival essentials you would need to save your family for several months?

That’s all the warning you would have before a solar storm takes out the power grid, according to a new government report from the United Kingdom.

The Space Weather Preparedness Strategy report revealed that the warning could be as little as 12 hours before a coronal mass ejection (CME) hits Earth and sends us all back to a 1800s existence.

Food Crisis - The Common Sense Show

food crisis

In one of the most telling interviews ever conducted on The Common Sense Show, Dave interviewed the owner of Numanna Foods, Daniel Brigman, about the importance of storing food in these times of unprecedented trouble.

EBT card troubles are just the beginning. This is a can’t miss interview.

What this interview will teach you is that buying food is not enough, you have to know how to prepare and how to store and eventually how to  hide your food...

EBT Card Outage?: It Is 8 Days Into June And Many Americans Are STILL Waiting For Food Stamp Money

 Image result for ebt card

If you relied on benefits to put food on the table for your family, how would you cope if those benefits were overdue and you didn't know when you were going to get paid?

There are over 40 million people in the USA that depend on  EBT Cards, a food stamp program, which allows the holder of the card to use government allocated credit at participating outlets to buy food... and that system is failing them.

It is reported that it has been over a week since their expected payments were due and retailers are turning people away in droves leaving them hungry and enraged.

Elite Special Forces Insider Warns Of Serious Civil Unrest This Summer: “Everything Is Right For Things To Go Very Wrong”

riots1

In the lead up to the Presidential election we’ve seen pockets of riotous behavior across America. Whether supporting Trump, Sanders, Hillary or Cruz, average Americans appear to be ready to go to war with their government or with each other. This sentiment, coupled with continued economic degradation and a general feeling of a populace that has for decades been marginalized by the political machine in the United States, is showing all the signs of serious civil unrest on the horizon.

In the following interview with Infowars.com special forces commando Tim Kennedy weighs in, describing the current situation as a trench having been dug and filled with accelerants just waiting to be ignited.

Kennedy is a continuity of government expert, which means he’s well versed in not only how the powder keg of civil unrest could potentially explode, but what The-Powers-That-Be will do once it does.

What Really Caused The Great Depression? Will YOU Be Homeless After The Economic Depression – Preparing For A Long Term

What Really Caused The Great Depression

 Great Depression

The stock market crash on October 29, 1929 set in motion a series of events that led to the Great Depression, but in fact, the American economy and global economy had been in turmoil six months prior to Black Tuesday, and a variety of factors before and after that fateful date in October caused and exacerbated the Great Depression.

Queen Elizabeth Reveals She Is Ready To Flee Britain

Queen Elizabeth II says she is ready to leave the UK if Britain vote to remain in the EU

The Queen was overheard saying that military intelligence suggests that if Britain doesn't leave Europe then World War 3 will occur.

Queen Elizabeth stunned BBC production staff yesterday while preparing to deliver the Queen’s Speech at the State Opening of Parliament, hinting that she is planning to abdicate the throne and flee the UK, a BBC insider claims.

'One is making the necessary preparations to abandon ship,’ Her Majesty said. ‘A violent storm is coming, the likes of which Britain has never seen.

Exclusive: Harrowing Video Shows Starving Venezuelans Eating Garbage, Looting

 

New video shot this week and obtained by the FOX Business Network shows in gruesome detail how the meltdown in Venezuela is growing more desperate by the hour.

People in the nation’s capital, Caracas, have resorted to eating and fighting over old food thrown away in garbage bags outside shopping malls where restaurants are located.

"They're ripping through garbage bags searching for food, the government says this is not happening, but we are very hungry here in Venezuela," says a male bystander on camera. A local says: "We are starving, we are eating dog food and food meant for farm animals."

Why Is This Fed Official Worried About a Solar Storm?

A massive solar storm could potentially cripple the U.S. electrical grid. NASA/AP

A regional risk expert published a grim assessment of how the U.S. economy would fair after a crippling solar storm.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta eyed up an extreme but perhaps not unlikely hypothetical scenario this week: What would happen to the U.S. economy if a "massive geomagnetic solar storm" crippled the domestic power grid, potentially for a "long, long time"?

The answer: nothing good.

A Spirit Of Violence And Civil Unrest Is Rising In America

Riot 2 - Public Domain

It was only a matter of time before our deeply divided nation was going to start coming apart at the seams.  Waves of anger, frustration, violence and civil unrest are starting to sweep across the United States, and political rallies for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump have become a focal point for releasing some of that energy. 

The angry mob that threw rocks, bottles and burning T-shirts at police and Donald Trump supporters on Tuesday night wanted to get the attention of the national media, and they got it in droves.  Now that the election is less than five months away, this kind of scene is going to be repeated over and over, and this is something that I warned about back in March.  Millions upon millions of our young people have fully embraced the radical left, and they have already made it exceedingly clear that they are not afraid to use violence to advance their cause.

EgyptAir airliner ‘apparently’ brought down by terror attack – Russia’s security chief

EgyptAir flight MS804 was travelling between Paris and Cairo when it vanished from radar.

A terror attack could be the reason for the EgyptAir crash, Aleksandr Bortnikov, head of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB), has said.

"Unfortunately, today there was another incident with an Egyptian Airlines plane. Apparently, it is a terrorist attack, which killed 66 people from 12 countries,” Bortnikov was cited as saying by TASS.

The FSB chief urged "all concerned parties, including our partners in Europe, to undertake joint measures to identify the persons involved in this heinous act."

Egypt’s Aviation Minister Sherif Fathy has told journalists that the missing plane is more likely to have been brought down by a terrorist attack than a technical failure.

“If you analyze the situation properly the possibility of having a terror attack is higher than the possibility of having a technical [problem]," he said.

An EgyptAir flight en route from Paris to Cairo has gone missing on Thursday with 56 passengers and 10 crewmembers on board.

While a search and rescue operation is under way, authorities and experts say no scenario can be ruled out, including terrorism.

Watch Venezuela, Because Food Shortages, Looting And Economic Collapse Are Coming

Venezuela Economic Collapse

The full-blown economic collapse that is happening in Venezuela right now is a preview of what we could be experiencing in the not too distant future. 

Just a few years ago, most Venezuelans could never have imagined that food shortages would become so severe that people would literally hunt dogs and cats for food.  But as you will see below, this is now taking place.  Sadly, this is what the endgame of socialism looks like.  When an all-powerful government is elevated far above all other institutions in society and radical leftists are given the keys to the kingdom, this is the result. 

Food shortages, looting and rampant violent crime have all become part of daily life in Venezuela, and we all need to watch as this unfolds very carefully, because similar scenarios will soon be playing out all over the planet.

“Banned in Hollywood”: This Film Dares to Show Martial Law and Civil War Coming to America

It is as thrilling and informative as it is terrifying. No movie has captured the essence of the dangers which presently confront the American people with the clarity and detail that Amerigeddon brings to movie audiences.

— Dave Hodges // The Common Sense Show

Every summer, Hollywood seems to release another batch of disaster and hero films full of action and end of the world scenarios.

But this film hits much closer to home.

It’s the scenario that could happen here, but Hollywood won’t dare to get behind. Nevertheless, it is coming to (select) theaters.

Director Mike Norris, son of Chuck Norris, is bringing a drama to screen ripped from the headlines of America’s real-life looming catastrophes. In AmeriGEDDON, an EMP attack brings down the grid and initiates the collapse scenario that preppers are all too familiar with: civil unrest and chaos as a result of the loss of food and services, followed by a heavy-handed attempt to impose martial law and confiscate the firearms of American patriots.

What follows is basically the beginning of the next civil war against the agents of world government and global control.

Here’s the preview:

Economic Collapse Is Erupting All Over The Planet As Global Leaders Begin To Panic

Earth Ready To Explode - Public Domain

 

Mainstream news outlets are already starting to use the phrase “economic collapse” to describe what is going on in some areas of our world right now.  For many this may seem a bit strange, but the truth is that the worldwide economic slowdown that began during the second half of last year is starting to get a lot worse. 

In this article, we are going to examine evidence of this from South America, Europe, Asia and North America.  Once we are done, it should be obvious that there is absolutely no reason to be optimistic about the direction of the global economy right now.  The

The Whole Thing is About To Come Unhinged: 6 Ways To Prepare For the Next Collapse

collapse1

Since the last great recession of 2008, economic forecasters and preppers alike have warned of the bottom dropping out of the economy. The proverbial doom prediction of “it’s not if, but when” was used for years as a call to action to get ready for a much larger economic disaster. Well folks, it seems that history is repeating itself. This week, George Soros cautioned the public of an impending economic crisis.
