And while a transmission line failure easily beats an EMP when it comes to overall damage as the electricity was soon restored for 70% or more of those who had suddenly lost it, the one comment seen below left on the 'mega-blackout' story sums up so much of what we're now witnessing in the world today. Proving to us how quickly 'disaster' can strike and how the total lack of preparedness for such an event hampered most people there, we can also read so much more into it.
Stephen K. Bannon has great admiration for a provocative but disputed theory of history that argues that the United States is nearing a crisis that could be just as disruptive and catastrophic as the most seminal global turning points of the last 250 years.
This prophecy, which is laid out in a 1997 book, “The Fourth Turning,” by two amateur historians, makes the case that world events unfold in predictable cycles of roughly 80 years each that can be divided into four chapters, or turnings: growth, maturation, entropy and destruction. Western societies have experienced the same patterns for centuries, the book argues, and they are as natural and necessary as spring, summer, fall and winter.
History is seasonal, and winter is coming. … The very survival of the nation will feel at stake. Sometime before the year 2025, America will pass through a great gate in history, one commensurate with the American Revolution, Civil War, and twin emergencies of the Great Depression and World War II. The risk of catastrophe will be high. The nation could erupt into insurrection or civil violence, crack up geographically, or succumb to authoritarian rule.
The “Fourth Turning” authors, William Strauss and Neil Howe, started using that phrase before it became a pop culture buzzword courtesy of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” But, as the authors point out, some winters are mild. And sometimes they arrive late. The best thing to do, they say, is to prepare for what they wrote will be “America’s next rendezvous with destiny.”
At ANP we have long believed that the best thing we can do is to prepare ourselves for any possible emergency or disaster and find great wisdom in the author's assertions as anyone who has been paying close attention knows, America has entered a very dangerous period of time. We also take heart in these Bannon comments from the NY Times story:
Mr. Bannon said: “Everything President Trump is doing — all of it — is to get ahead of or stop any potential crisis.”
Knowing that danger possibly lies ahead is the first critical step needed to be taken to prepare for it and as recent and historical events prove, 'life as we know it' can change in an instant.
A crisis is not coming. It is already here, and it will be as defining a moment in the history of the United States as the Great Depression, World War II, or the American Civil War — that is, if you believe in an interesting theory laid out in a book called “The Fourth Turning: What Cycles of History Tell Us About America’s Next Rendezvous With Destiny.”
The Crisis is here, and Trump, as well as the rest of the western rebellion against the destabilizing forces of globalism are symptoms of the crisis as well as the cure to it. Buckle up, because I’ve got a feeling that the coming decade is going to get pretty bumpy.
Incredibly interestingly, according to the authors of 'The 4th Turning' William Strauss and Neil Howe, the '4th Turning' that we're now in could be coming to its conclusion sometime around the year 2025. While we strongly doubt that the authors of that book (written in 1997) had any knowledge of the website Deagel.com, Deagel also has a 2025 forecast for America that should send off huge alarm bells as they're seemingly forecasting destruction for America as well.
Forecasting an America in 2025 with 61 million people living here, down from the 321 million living here in 2015, Deagel also forecasts a 2025 America with a GDP of $949 billion, down from $18 trillion in 2015, and an America where our GDP per capita drops from $55,855 in 2015 to $15,517 in 2025. In other words, Deagel's forecasts for 2025 America are showing the same kind of 'destruction' that the '4th Turning' warns us about. So, shouldn't we prepare now for what many seem to believe is inevitable? The alarms have long been sounded. Those who aren't paying attention will have no excuses.
The Sgt Report video below is an excellent discussion of the 4th Turning and what many believe to be where we are in America right now wiht emphasis put upon the 2008 financial crisis, what they suggest was a coordinated attack by the financial elite as the bankers held our country hostage, the faith in our long-standing institutions that has been completely eroded by corruption and the destabilization of society and of the family unit over the past decade+.
We're told it's no coincidence that we're now witnessing endless wars and more imperialism with events clearly being manipulating behind the scenes such as the migrant crisis and the series of financial crisis being manipulated by the banks. They also discuss what they consider the elephant in the room, President Donald Trump and the fact that while we're all thrilled that 'hillary rotten clinton' wasn't voted into the White House, we're still on the same path to destruction as the globalists who've long been manipulating behind the scenes haven't gone anywhere at all.
According to Hart, Bannon is consciously aware of historical cycles and seeking to help steer 'the good ship USA' through what's coming, hoping to help President Trump make the correct preparations prior to the final catalyzing and cataclysmic event.
They also tell us that the 'manipulation of history' is what we need to watch out for and point out that google, the left, the msm and the deep state are attempting to paint picture of history that is not real...a revision of history... a revision of culture. Warning us that the US has long been under the influence and control of an 'occupying entity' that is trying to control the narrative by such actions as remove long-time national monuments, we're warned it's time to "man battle stations.. this is a fight, this is a war.. an 'infowar'".
They also discuss a GREAT QUESTION: what is this 'entity'? Reminding us of 'who owns the world', we're told much of what 'free Americans' are up against are multi-generational families of power going back hundreds of years, with wealth and knowledge handed down through that time period. They compare 'this entity' to the multi-tenacled beast the hydra, where if one tentacle is cut off somewhere, another one is ready to assume that tentacles duties.
Also discussed is the 'resistance to globalism' as they warn that Americans can't place all of our chips on President Trump: "Resistance to the entity must be constructed similar to entity with multiple centers of power". Referring to Hillary as a "Godless witch...hell bent upon stampeding over human rights to get their own agenda's completed", we're also reminded that our Liberties are 'God given' and they can't be taken away by the satanic nwo, Hillary, George Soros or government. Our rights that are a reminder of the 'spark of divinity' within each of us, given to us by our Creator, are rights that WILL NOT be trampled upon by the 'Godless witch' or anybody else in a truly free society.
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
How far down the rabbit hole does this all go? Many different points of view to this book are discussed including the strong probability that history has long being manipulated by those who've long been in power, and as we've seen in their destabilization of family and the moral guideposts most Americans have long lived by, especially the ongoing war upon Christianity, we see more proof that America has long passed the '3rd turning' and is now in crisis mode.
While the msm continues to complain about Bannon's embracing of the book, certainly a captain of a ship on the ocean or the pilot of a plane in the sky who do not know that a storm is ahead are doomed to take their ship or plane straight into the danger. Is that what the msm and critics on the left WANT President Trump to do? They should keep in mind that he's 'captaining a ship' of 360+ million.
Also reminding us that Venezuela is a very sobering example of where we could end up, with countless Venezuelans literally starving because of the nightmare they're going through, we see a nearly 'worst case scenario' of what happens when a nation is victimized by socialism, banking powers and ruling powers who care not for the people.
As we're also told, when people don't believe in something, they fall for anything and with the attack upon God and spirituality, the satanic globalists agenda to impose chaos continues unabated.
Also discussed are Seth Rich and the John Podesta Wikileaks email about 'making example of leakers', the Biblical prediction of an end times scenario coming to America and the world, the 'gigantic reeducation campaign' that has continued against Americans despite Hillary not being voted into office and 'weathering the storm'...how bad will it get?
Knowing a storm is coming is one of the keys to avert sailing into it and avoiding the coming chaos. THIS is why we prepare!
