Polish Up Your Crystal Ball, What Do You See? Another Open Thread

I am busier than a one armed paper hanger in a hurricane at the moment.

I am taking a quick break after having made breakfast for seven people before I start in on the clean up.

Then I have something out in the garage calling my name that I haven’t had hardly a minute or two to even look at for a couple of days.

Things are coming to a head soon.

Four days until TSHTF the way I see it.

What are your thoughts?

  1. Turning and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    Surely some revelation is at hand;
    Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
    The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
    When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
    Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
    A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
    A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
    Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
    Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
    The darkness drops again; but now I know
    That twenty centuries of stony sleep
    Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
    And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
    Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

    by Irish poet W. B. Yeats in 1919,

  2. Just looked at Big Country’s most recent posting. Pic of fasteners installed backwards on perimeter fence. Just a thought- all those soldiers to be held as a form of hostages, perhaps? Who knows for sure if they have been issued ammo?

  3. Just to sum it up a bit – First off, stay the hell away from major shitties and especially district of corruption. Boycott all news channels on the 20th. Dish and cable can track what channels you are using, in a round about way, by the amount of juice it takes to send the signal, the more juice for a given signal, the more viewers sucking it up.

    This should be something you live by from here on out:
    Time to fight back like you mean it. Do not obey, do not co-operate, do not comply with any fraudulent gov or any of its agencies.

    When the governed become ungovernable – Let Them Herd Cats……. Be one of the millions of cats.

    They do not care about the Constitution, they do not care about rule of law, they lust for power for powers sake, and from now forward they will do absolutely anything to maintain it.

    You are endowed with God given rights, let none take them from you. You do not need permission, you have those rights by your very humanity.

  4. A series of unfortunate events until spring, say mid April for those up North, and then all hell breaking loose.
    This will include weeping, gnashing of teeth, rivers of blood, mountains of skulls, possible blue helmet targets, economic collapse, starvation, balkanization, Rwanda X Bosnia, all of the good stuff.
    Unless it happens sooner.
    Unless we get hit with an EMP sooner.
    Unless Sweet Meteor of Death hits sooner.
    Then all of the above will happen sooner.
    P.S. It’s not going to matter who is in the Presidency.

  5. I pay more attention to the fucked up goings on than most.
    I have been surprised at how much the average guy has come up to speed.
    From the propane man to the bank teller to the stranger at the parts store, people are seeing thru the bullshit and realize what’s really going on.
    The left is self delegitimizing.
    I hope they jump the shark and hope that Trump crosses the Rubicon.

  6. Heard an interesting theory (and it’s just a theory, I have no knowledge of anyone’s intent to do this): Biden will be assassinated by a “right-wing-extremist-insurrectionist” either at or shortly after the inauguration. It ties up a lot of loose ends and enables a lot more of what they want to do.

    1. Gets Biden out of the way. He’s a liability. Puts his foot in his mouth, gives up secrets he shouldn’t, has a crack-head son, etc. With him martyred, his history gets a pass and he’ll be buried like JFK.
    2. Heels-up Harris gets to be Prez. They always wanted her. She has the moral flexibility to do whatever the handlers tell her to do, and more teflon coating than Obumble (being minority AND female) so she can get what she wants.
    3 It’s all blamed on gun-loving, right-wing, racist, insurrectionists. This enables a massive crackdown on all conservatives. No free speech, no job, no way to even go out in public.
    4. Not just gun control, but gun elimination. If you’ve read your Matt Bracken, this could be the event that finally lets the tyrants take away all our guns.
    5. Government is further insulated from the people. Between the events of the 6th and a Biden assassination, they will justify that Washington DC is not going to allow the public anywhere near the centers of power. No more public in the gallery, no more demonstrations, etc. The business of government is no longer of interest to you, peasant!

    The beauty for them is that Biden is too far gone to realize that they’re going to kill him. He’ll never see it coming.

        • I am little g greg not big G. I have often thought if I ever was to become a troll I’d be the kind living under the bridges and make my spot the nicest troll house there ever was. Engineered and architectural. The real deal. Trump approved. I’d reinforce it bullet proof. Heated, cooled and sewer with armory and kitchen. When I trolled you, it would be by the finest. People would travel to my place to get trolled and tell everyone far and wide how amazing it was. If you can’t go first class, stay home.

  8. After making a huge amount of food and then having to listen to their loud asses for another hour and a half I had to wait awhile for the Wifely Unit’s sisters, niece and nephew to bail out. Then I had to clean up that mess.
    The Wifely Unit’s birthday was the other day and she wanted me to make “Brunch” for her and her peeps.
    I still got Fuck All done out in the garage but I did go fill the truck up with gas and took the one empty five gallon gas can with me.
    I also swung by the parts house and picked up a gallon of WD-40, three quarts of oil, a couple of marker light bulbs and a couple of cans of Brake Clean.
    I have gone through 3 cans of WD-40 in this past week alone and decided to just buy it in bulk .
    $30 a gallon compared to $8-9 for a few ounces in a can.
    I saw Rightwingterrorists link on how to make your own Berkeley water filter and am going to be looking into that.
    Things are a little too quiet right at the moment for my tastes.
    Something about The Calm Before The Storm if you know what I mean.
    One way or another there is some shit coming down the pipe. I’d just as soon not have my face right in front of the end of it with my mouth open.

    • Yeah, even though I’m really not working (they got their hands on my credentials and my resume- insanely overqualified) I just bought 4 filters. Sure, there is cheaper ones, and maybe they’ll work the same, but who knows.
      Yep.
      I’ve got a well that I don’t use and a pond, but shit, I’ve got kids. They can drink from that and I’ll go ahead and purify the well and test sample it myself if I have to.
      One filter is reserved for meatspace.
      Speaking of which, I distributed 4 dozen eggs to those who are in walking distance with one of the kids in tow.
      At least one wants to kill commies, but I already knew that, and he’s an excop. Which makes me leery of him.

  11. What I see happening is very clear …

    We’ll call it the “patriot, right, conservative, veteran” however you want to label it … are being set up for a huge fall. With very few exceptions our side are completely clueless (((who the real enemy are))). We’re being set up to go after over-bearing gov. & commies and each other.

    We MUST go after who’s (((really behind all this))). How do you win a war when you literally cannot identify (((the enemy))) ?? Our side is clearly not that bright and are being walked right into a trap.

    If our side doesn’t get hip to the (((real perps))) we’re going to be genocided off.

    Get your heads our of your asses folks …. real fast.
