In many cases the people most likely to be affected by an "event" are usually the last to know it is coming. Governments often provide a variety of reasons for misinforming the public, such as "we didn't want to cause a panic," or "we thought we could avoid it," or any other number of excuses for deliberately keeping the population as uninformed as they could, and they do this with the full complicity of the mainstream media.
Last week many in Alternative News saw reports of a Chinese billboard erected in Bangkok, stating "RMB: New Choice; The World Currency," with many seeing this as the Chinese making it clear they are ready and able to replace the US Dollar as the world's reserve currency. ANP reported on this as well as the hostory of reserve currencies which traditionally last between 80 and 110 years. (Graph shown HERE)
Today we see a report from March 9, 2015 which states that "China may be ending dollar's hold on reserve currency as early as September," which explains that China has already "completed a message interchange system that mirrors the same one in the West, the Chinese equivalent of SWIFT is now ready and is expected to be fully operational by the 3rd quarter of 2015, which will allow other nations to transact with the world's largest economy without the need to purchase dollars as a medium of exchange."
According to Reuters, "China's long-awaited international payment system to process cross-border yuan transactions is ready, and may be launched as early as September or October," confirmed by Reuter with three separate sources.
We have heard multiple warnings from a variety of sources, investors, forecasters, financial gurus, that despite what the MSM is telling Americans, economic collapse is on the way.
The Dollar has already held on longer than Portugal (80 years- from 1450 to 1530), Netherlands (80 years - 1640-1720), is one year shy of Frnace (95 years -1720-1815), with only Britain and Spain topping 100 years.
It is not a matter of if the Dollar loses it's status, but when. Whether it is tomorrow, next month, next year or in the next 5 years (doubtful it will take that long), the dollar will be replaced.
Which brings us to the headlined question of "Will civil unrest and martial law come to pass in America?"
All one has to do is look at history and what happens during an economic collapse. Via Wiki "economic collapse is accompanied by social chaos, civil unrest and sometimes a breakdown of law and order."
For those that would say "but that is them, not us," we can look right here in our very own country to see just a sample of what will happen.
Anyone remember what happened when EBT (Electric Benefit Transfer) cards stopped working for a day in 2013, where those using the welfare card started threatening riots, and warned of "Rodney King" type riots? That was only a segment of the population, yet chaos reigned, and should give everyone a look into what is coming.
History tells us what is going to happen. Watching Venezuala tells us what is coming. Examples right here in the USA prove to us what occurs when people cannot feed their families.
We all know what is going to happen, so the question here is does anyone really believe that when mass rioting starts, the US government and their militarized police forces that have been preparing for war on Americans are not going to declare martial law?
No one is saying drain all your resources and spend every cent you have right this second to prepare..... what we are saying is take a few dollars every week, stock up on supplies a little at a time, water, canned goods, first aid supplies, flashlights, batteries.... the necessities. It is better to be prepared and not need it than to need it and not be prepared.
