The mouthpiece of the new world order -- the mainstream news media -- is falling all over itself to show the images and symbols of how leaders of the 20 most powerful nations on earth came together to "save the world."
Their tinny reporting has all the makings of a corny B movie about a bunch of inexperienced, yet cunning crooks, plotting to close down or control all the places where people keep their money, steal the world's wealth, redistribute it among their buddies, and deceive the masses while appearing to be a frat house of raucous superheroes. Unfortunately, the world stage is little different than Hollywood and the myth of the movie is, in truth, a reality show.
Great Britain's Prime Minister Harold Brown whipped the media into a frenzy by declaring:
"I think a new world order is emerging and with it the foundations of a new and progressive era of international cooperation."Brown underscored a global communist theme in saying:
"We have resolved from today, we will together manage the process of globalization to secure responsibility from all and fairness to all."Brown summarized the accomplishments of the G20 summit saying world leaders embarked on the largest redistribution of wealth in history by agreeing to reform banks, restructure the global financial system, give money to the poor and ensure "a green recovery."
The man who now occupies the Oval Office threw America's sovereignty under the bus, joined up with the gang of 20, and agreed to an international heist of a trillion dollars as the first installment of redistributing America's wealth to the rest of the world in support of programs that will make his socialist and communist buddies richer and more powerful. He explained his strategy of compromise to adoring reporters:
"Each country has its own quirks and own particular issues that a leader may decide is really, really important, something that is non-negotiable for them. And what we tried to do as much as possible was to accommodate those issues in a way that did not hamper the effectiveness of the overall document."Even Russian President Dmitry Medvedev hailed the US President as "my new comrade." The Russians are ecstatic over the possibility of the US now reversing all previous policies that protected America and her allies from Russian-inspired attacks.
2 Timothy 3:13 warned of the type of leaders that would emerge in the latter days:
"But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived."The world has witnessed the very foundational cornerstone being laid of a one world order. And those who do not know better are embracing this deadly plague dressed like a virgin bride -- just like in the movies. This script, however, was not written in Hollywood.

During the boom years, no place in America boomed more than Las Vegas. But when the economy collapsed, Vegas fell hard.
Laura Ling tours the wreckage of Sin City, from unemployed strippers and half-built, abandoned casino projects, to hospitals turning away cancer patients and ambulances, to one of the few remaining boom industries--evicting people.
“Lost Vegas” (video above) previews the terrifying future facing America. We are looking at a disaster unprecedented in recent history.
America's flawed "pro-growth" economy
In the 1980s, the US adopted economic policies that favored cost cutting and global trade. And where the US used to be the manufacturing sector of the world, it stopped making goods, and instead started buying goods from Asia, where products were cheaper because people were paid less to make them. The US was flooded with cheap goods, and Americans were encouraged to spend more money. And eventually consumer spending, which used to account for 60% of the US economy, had jumped to 70%. Factory workers in the midwest lost their jobs and many of them ended up leaving for growing places like Las Vegas. - Quote from "Lost Vegas"
In the last twenty five years, the US has outsourced virtually its entire manufacturing sector. We as a nation have allowed ourselves to become totally dependent on foreign oil (those 11mph SUVs), and we have outsourced the productions of our most basic necessities to places like China. This means that a devaluation of the dollar will instantly wipe out America’s standard of living, leaving us as third world citizens. This dollar devaluation is now underway.

The ‘bad’ phase of this financial crisis is only beginning
Up until now, while things may have been bad on an individual level (job loss, foreclosures, etc.), the financial crisis hasn’t impacted the way America works.People may have cut back on spending, but the basics of American life haven’t been drastically altered. However, that is about to change as the dollar collapses over the coming months.
(See Loud Paradigm Shift Rumblings or Fed Planning 15-Fold Increase In US Monetary Base for more on the information on what is happening to the dollar.)
Savings are going to be wiped out by the dollar’s collapse. Oh, there will be plenty of $100 bills floating around the economy, but these bills won’t buy anything of value.
Although the financial crisis has greatly impacted the ability to borrow, right now it is still possible for American consumers to borrow money. As proof, I just got another 0% credit card last month (which I used to buy gold on ebay).
However, credit card limits aren’t going to be increased to keep up with inflation, which means a year from now nearly all credit cards will be useless (credit cards of foreign banks denominated in foreign currencies might still work). Additionally, hyperinflation has the impact of vaporizing the financial sector of the country where it occurs, which means it will be soon next to impossible to borrow money in the US.
The dollar has begun to fall, and over the next year it will lose most of its value. As it does, most of America’s service economy, like Las Vegas, will disintegrate as consumer spending in real terms (i.e.: gold or other stable currencies) will drop like a rock. The US service sector will evaporate, bringing unemployment to levels exceeding the great depression.
People will die
When people go broke, so do their governments. - Quote from "Lost Vegas"
As the US service economy disintegrates, public health services/programs will be cut back, and individuals will have no savings/credit/income to pay for medical care. The “Lost Vegas” video should give an idea what this will look like: patients will be turned away from hospital; pharmacies will also close because no one will have any means of paying for medication. It will be a disaster…
Crime will rise
“This economy is so stupid, man. People are going to start going to jail eventually… because, you know, they’re worried about their kids, the health of their kids, feeding their kids… they're going to do whatever it takes to feed their kids, man… I got kids, man… I gotta feed, man.” -Quote from "Lost Vegas"
We are heading towards a future with millions of desperate people at a time when critical services, including law enforcement, will be cutting back. To make matters worse, oil prices will soar in dollars, leading to possible shortages and supply disruptions. Because of rising fuel costs and budget constraints, police forces will have to cut back on their fuel use, which means less patrolling…
This is what really scares me. You can stockpile all the food and gold in the world, but it is useless if it gets stolen from you.
How will your community do?
Look around you. Do you see any farmland, mines, oil wells/refining, factories, or unique landmarks able to attract foreign tourist? If you do, then you are luck, as these places will bring in income which will help sustain your local economy (Alaska will probably be the state best able to weather the crisis).
However, if all you see is retailers, hotels, casinos, houses, skyscrapers, restaurants, bars, clubs, etc, then your community is in trouble. "Lost Vegas" offers a preview of what faces a local economy concentrated entirely in the service sector.
Longer term, the US will recover
In the longer term, the manufacturing in the United States will recover. Companies will start outsourcing jobs here, as we will be the new China (weak currency with millions of people desperate for work). The US is also blessed with some of the best agricultural land on Earth. The people responsible for this economic/financial mess will go to jail, and the US economy will experience real grow based on the production real goods (and not over-consumption and foreign debt).
It is the next two years which terrify me. I plan to move to Russia later this year and am moving forwards with setting up a fund to invest in Russian agriculture.
