As we were told by the Organic Prepper back then: "Today’s lesson is that when times get tough, the government can and will persecute those who have planned ahead." With the collapse now upon us, will prepping soon be made 'illegal' and those who have prepared for the financial carnage caused by corporate and bankster criminals be labeled as 'outlaws' and 'enemies to society', a society that failed to prepare? The 1st video below asks exactly that; with collapse upon us and a drive to institute a 'new system', will preparing become illegal and prepperes outlawed, hunted down and slaughtered for having the wisdom to prepare for the future while others 'gambled' away theirs?
Even though some might laugh off such a possibility, all we need to do is look at executive orders signed by Barack Obama which gives him total control of all the resources now in America if a national emergency is declared... of course, by him. If this 2012 executive order isn't bordering upon dictatorship, we don't know what is. From March 19th, 2012 story.:
President Obama signed an Executive Order for “National Defense” yesterday that claims executive authority to seize all US resources and persons, including during peacetime, for self-declared “national defense.”
The EO claims power to place any American into military or “allocated” labor use (analysis here and here).
These definitions are written in to the 1950 War and National Defense Defense (sic) Production Act, and so let’s see what the act itself has to say for itself.
Go directly to section 2072. That’s the key part from our perspective.
§2072. Hoarding of designated scarce materials
In order to prevent hoarding, no person shall accumulate (1) in excess of the reasonable demands of business, personal, or home consumption, or (2) for the purpose of resale at prices in excess of prevailing market prices, materials which have been designated by the President as scarce materials or materials the supply of which would be threatened by such accumulation. The President shall order published in the Federal Register, and in such other manner as he may deem appropriate, every designation of materials the accumulation of which is unlawful and any withdrawal of such designation.
In making such designations the President may prescribe such conditions with respect to the accumulation of materials in excess of the reasonable demands of business, personal, or home consumption as he deems necessary to carry out the objectives of this Act [sections 2061 to 2170, 2171, and 2172 of this Appendix]. This section shall not be construed to limit the authority contained in sections 101 and 704 of this Act [sections 2071 and 2154 of this Appendix].
So the President can simply say that anything more than (for example) a week’s supply of food (and all the other things listed) is an amount ‘in excess of the reasonable demands of personal consumption’ and then order the Army to impound everything you have in excess of that amount.
The Attorney General of Venezuela, Luisa Ortega Díaz, called on prosecutors to target people who are “hoarding” basic staples with serious sanctions.
She called on prosecutors to seek their detention.
The attorney general called on people to remain calm, not to fall for provocations, and not to be afraid of the “alleged” food shortage.
Based on the figures provided by the Central Bank of Venezuela, shortage hit 20% in August; in other words, 20 out 100 items are missing from the shelves.
According to a press release, the Attorney General Office has designated an ad hoc group of prosecutors to work nationwide with other authorities and cope with the threats against food security and, consequently, against the State.
Are we now closing in on the point in time when preppers are labeled enemies of society for preparing while others remained 'dumbed down', totally oblivious to the unfolding financial mess all around them? After preppers have spent many years or even decades preparing for the inevitable financial collapse in large part brought on by government agencies and countless poor decisions, will Obama (or whoever is president at that particular time) simply swoop in and take away what they have sacrificed for and worked hard to obtain 'for the sake of the public good'?
Have we almost arrived at the time where preppers are rounded up and slaughtered for foreseeing the coming carnage by a government seemingly hell-bent upon persecuting Christians, conservatives, preppers and anyone else who saw the damage that was being done and decided to take their futures and their families futures into their own hands rather than depend upon corrupt government, which inevitably fails everyone?
The 1st video below takes a look at the very real possibility of preparing to be made illegal in America as most Americans continue to sleepwalk through history. As we learn in the 2nd video below from Gerald Celente, most Americans are now being undone by their own lack of caring about anything at all that really matters. Economic collapse? What's that? Former Reagan cabinet member Paul Craig Roberts recently asked "Are Americans are too insouciant to survive?" He makes some great points.:
When one looks at the deplorable state of the world, one cannot help but wonder at the insouciance of the American people. Where are they? Do they exist or are they a myth? Have they been put to sleep by an evil demon? Are they so lost in The Matrix that they cannot get out?
Ever since Clinton’s second term the US has been consistently acting internationally and domestically as a criminal, disregarding its own laws, international laws, the sovereignty of other countries, and the US Constitution. A worse criminal government has never existed. Yet, Americans remain subservient to the criminals that they have placed in power over themselves.
However, reality has a way of 'awakening' everybody and those who are stuck in the globalists endgame of 'trap, bait and slaughter' will likely be the first to go. If govt would only realize that those who prepared for this mess are doing them a huge favor, maybe they wouldn't be so quick to go after preppers. Then again, that would be asking for them to follow the law and common sense and we haven't seen much of either of those coming out of Washington DC in a very, very long time.
