by Richard Sauder, Event Horizon:
My mini-vision of a couple of months ago of the date, 4 September, has proved to be prescient. It is clear now that these days in early September are a crucial watershed period for the USSA and possibly for the world, as the USSA undergoes trial by Hurricane(s) and appears to be poised on the brink of possible nuclear war with North Korea. Both Donald Trump and the USSA as a whole are under terrific stress right now -- militarily, politically, economically, socially, meteorologically -- at the individual and national level.
Here's the reality: we are now to the point where there will be more and more changes, more and more problems and chaos. The world is changing and as we move deeper into the Event Horizon the pace of events will quicken, faster and faster, more and more.
Eventually the confusion may become completely overwhelming, or nearly so, and we may not even be in contact anymore.
As things break down, something new will emerge, perhaps with a more prosperous and peaceful, multi-polar world order as proposed by Vladimir Putin, with more of an emphasis on Asia and the Global South, but first it does look like much of the world will go through a time ofturmoil, even violent turmoil in some countries -- which already exists for people in Syria, Somalia, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, and other places.
Karmically and politically that turmoil has also already begun in the USSA. It will get worse and worse, maybe a very great deal worse. It looks like there may very well be a years-long period of pronounced decline and chaos in the USSA dominated global system of governance. Indeed, the USSA itself may break up and splinter into pieces, much as the former Soviet Union did more than 25 years ago.
The trial by hurricane(s) that the USSA is now undergoing is like the pounding that a heavyweight boxer undergoes when he absorbs a withering series of powerful body blows in a 15-round slug fest. The damaging body blows have a cumulative effect that after a given point can bring even the most powerful of men crashing down to defeat.
Have no doubt, what has just happened in Houston is a powerful body blow for the USSA system. Houston, and the surrounding area of the Gulf Coast, is a vital component of the industrial and economic might of the USSA, as a crucial petrochemical, petroleum refining and commercial shipping center, and nerve center of the global, petroleum business.
But Houston, and the surrounding region, have been trashed due to the ravages of Hurricane Harvey and its heavy flooding aftermath. Houston may never again be the city that we have known it to be during the second half of the 20th century and the opening years of the 21st century. I used to clean windows for some wealthy clients in the oil business, who had a big, two-storey, rambling house with lots of windows in one of those upscale neighborhoods down along Buffalo Bayou on the west side of town. I imagine their big, expensive house sustained a lot of water damage and may not even be habitable at this point, assuming they will want to live there anymore.
A Texas friend writes in to say:
Houston has been destroyed. They may save the tall civic center buildings but the city itself is lost. All our cities are built upon a structure: the very poor live in the worst parts of the city, getting by through whatever means they can--selling drugs, selling labor, stealing, etc. By the time you get to someone who can actually rent a room you are several levels above the real slums. All that housing and the small businesses that served those people are gone now.
Considering the condition of the ground, it will be a long time before it dries out enough to build there. Frame structures that are flooded can't be saved; they are infected with molds, viruses and industrial pollutants. Developers can get properties for pennies; they will have a field day, at the expense of the former owners.
Got insurance? You will have to sue to collect.
But just wait...
Hurricane Irma arrives in South Florida in the coming days and bids fair to be a repeat of Harvey, and maybe even worse.
It looks like the southeast coastline, from South Florida all the way up to South Carolina, will be ravaged within the next week, with very extensive property damage and displacement of the coastal population.
I used to live, once upon a time, in a tiny little house beneath towering, stately, pecan trees, right along the very edge of a large salt marsh in rural, coastal Georgia. At low tide I could walk barefoot for miles in the tidal flats, through an endless labyrinth of tidal creeks running through a seemingly never-ending expanse of marsh grass that extended nearly to the horizon, with the mud squishing through my toes, watching the marsh hens in their deliberate stalking of their prey, and setting a crab trap or two, which might even have caught the occasional fish along with a few crabs. All of that is likely to be overwhelmed by a furious 20 foot storm surge in three or four days from now. That tranquil little house under the ancient pecan trees down by the sea, will probably be destroyed and those huge, old pecan trees may be uprooted and washed away, as well.
And not only those trees and that little house, but also much of the little town where those trees and that little house stand. It is, all of it, barely 5 feet above sea level, if that, and the projected storm surge is as much as 20 feet and maybe even more.
Beyond that, there is the USSA Naval Submarine Base at Kings Bay, Georgia, the USSA Navy Aircraft Carrier Base at Mayport, Florida and the Cape Canaveral Space Port at Cocoa Beach, Florida. All of these facilities are immediately on the coast, mere feet above sea level, and highly vulnerable to the high winds and high storm surge that Irma is imminently going to inflict on that region.
Then there are the miles of high rise condominiums and hotels, banks and other skyscrapers in Miami, that are built right along the beach, right down along the seashore. What happens when those twenty and thirty and forty story buildings take 10 or 15 feet of storm surge, and 150 mph winds?
We'll soon find out.
But that's not all.
The USSA Deep State Is Gearing Up To Attack North Korea
The war drums against North Korea are beating louder and louder, week after week. While I realize perfectly well that many people say that the prospect of a shooting nuclear war is too insane to contemplate, that such a ghastly eventuality could never occur, that cooler heads will prevail, that not even the War Hawks in the Pentagon could actually be so demented as to wage such a destructive, genocidal war, the hard reality is that over the last 70 years, the military-industrial-intelligence complex of the USSA has made extensive, multi-trillion dollar preparations to fight and *win* just such a nuclear conflict.
That is the harsh truth of the matter. Whether or not you think that is a good idea, whether or not you approve of such a plan and preparations -- none of that matters to them. Their priorities are not necessarily your priorities. For you, nuclear mushroom clouds are probably a really, really bad thing; for them, nuclear mushroom clouds are but a means to an end -- domination of the planet by them on their terms They intend to engineer the enormous death and destruction in a manner that results in their political, military, economic and social control of the entire planet, or so they think.
Accordingly, in recent days, Donald Trump has proposed cutting off trade with all countries that engage in trade with North Korea, including China. Now, China and the USSA have bilateral trade that runs to $600 billion or more per year, so a cut-off of trade with China would be a crippling blow for the Chinese economy and also the economy of the USSA. In fact, a policy that stupid would end up harming China and the USSA far more than North Korea. Even worse, it might lead to a shooting war between the USSA and China.
Not surprisingly, the Chinese can see that geopolitical events in northeast Asia are rapidly spiraling in an ugly direction and have just staged adefensive military drill in the region near North Korea. The Chinese understand that the USSA has a more than century-long history of repeated, highly destructive military interventions and wars in Asia -- in the Philippines, against Japan, in Korea, in Indo-China -- and are overtly signalling that if they are threatened, that they will militarily defend Chinese territory and interests.
