From the Desk of John Rourke – August 25th, 2015

The DOW plummets close to 600 points and a barrel of oil is now below $39. Going to be interesting a month from now where everything will be sitting. Hey – no better time to put back some additional beans, bullets, and ban-aides then RIGHT NOW.

I am truly surprised that Israel has not carried out an attack against Iranian nuclear targets at some point over the past few years.

Check out this article about a special advisor in the British government who believes an economic collapse is coming.

Here is a short exempt:

A former adviser to Gordon Brown has urged people to stock up on canned goods and bottled water as stock markets around the world slide.

Damian McBride appeared to suggest that the stock market dip could lead to civil disorder or other situations where it would be unreasonable for someone to leave the house.

“Advice on the looming crash, No.1: get hard cash in a safe place now; don’t assume banks & cashpoints will be open, or bank cards will work,” he tweeted.

“Crash advice No.2: do you have enough bottled water, tinned goods & other essentials at home to live a month indoors? If not, get shopping.

“Crash advice No.3: agree a rally point with your loved ones in case transport and communication gets cut off; somewhere you can all head to.”

Some analysts have suggested that the stock market slide could be the start of a new global financial crisis.

I am on Book 4 of The Survivalist series by Dr. Arthur T. Bradley. I listen to the Audible version and it is fantastic.

Not familiar with The Survivalist?

From  “Frontier Justice is the first book in a series described as “a cross between Justified and The Walking Dead.” The Superpox-99 virus has wiped out nearly the entire human race. Governments have collapsed. Cities have become graveyards filled with unspeakable horror. People have resorted to scavenging from the dead, or taking from the living. The entire industrialized world has become a wasteland of abandoned cars, decaying bodies, and feral animals.

To stay alive, U.S. Deputy Marshal Mason Raines must forage for food, water, and gasoline while outgunning those who seek to take advantage of the apocalyptic anarchy. Together with his giant Irish wolfhound, Bowie, he aligns with survivors of the town of Boone in a life and death struggle against a gang of violent criminals. With each deadly encounter, Mason is forced to accept his place as one of the nation’s few remaining lawmen. In a world now populated by escaped convicts, paranoid mutants, and government hit squads, his only hope to save the townspeople is to enforce his own brand of frontier justice.”

VP Biden apparently is considering running for President. Oh I hope so. I really appreciate the entertainment value involved in that decision.

  1. In a world now populated by escaped convicts, paranoid mutants, and government hit squads….

    Sounds a bit like current times, to me. Substitute gay mafia for government, and it is dead on.

  2. I cannot get that article to open. Something about a long-running script. My computer was purchased about 6 months ago; I guess it is obsolete already.

  3. I also enjoy seeing Biden run. Sadly, he is literally a better choice than Hillary. I’d like to see him debate, well, anyone, actually.

  4. I am convinced that the “large unexplained explosions” in Iran are the work of Israel’s military/intelligence units, most likely with Jordanian, Egyptian and Saudi “help”. I too, am shocked they have not YET conducted an official air strike. I would not be surprised to see certain “explosions” occurring in “underground” facilities within Iran that Mr. Pansy al Kerry doesn’t even know exist.
    Pansy-al-Kerry is definitely MY top choice for the Neville Chamberlain-Peace in-our-Time-Incompetent-Statesman Award. HE wins hands down.

  5. John I have no doubt that Israel will strike when they feel it is necessary, I am sure the Mossad is neck deep in the situation and Mr. Netanyahu will not let Iran get what they want and truth be told I bet that a lot of other countries in the area do not want Iran to have the bomb either. We will find out about Israel hitting Iran after the fact but it will happen.

  6. I think Israel is afraid that Obama will back Iran ..
    And who knew the French would honor heroism but not the US for our own people. Seems lie getting my first Solar panels might be a better idea than I thought.
    I am not a doom sayer, but it is getting hard to come up with ANY positive intent by anyone in authority guys.
    I’ll sotp so I can keep it family friendly.. MAN!!

  7. I am hoping that Israel will protect itself before Iran gets the Missile shields from Russia
    Took some $ out from savings yesterday -for just in case. All your comment s are interesting.Arlene

  8. I like Trump–tells things the way they are–Not pretty–not eloquent, not even popular– in certain handout, gimmee segments of our population (who cares, starve you leaches)–but–it’s the truth–it’s what every NORMAL, hard working, tax paying American is thinking but too scared to voice because of this damn PC horseshit–the your special mentality has REALLY fuked us up. Biden–although entertaining with his comments and antics–is, in my opinion, not quite ready to take for primetime OR to take on the Donald in a debate–CRAZY UNCLE BIDEN–reminds me of cousin eddy in the national lampoon vacation series–Clinton, thank God, is probably and should be toast and in prison (corrupt bitch) SHOULD the head muslin in charge back Biden (which it appears he is going to because of her MANY, MANNNNNY issues) , He’ll order the FBI, the DOJ and any other alphabet agency in his control, to crank her up and make it happen (not a lot of love between the 2 camps). My biggest fear is the retarded republicans continue to snub Trump–He goes 3rd party (which he will) –drag 50% of the repub vote and OBAMMY redux gets in again–that WOULD be the end of us as we know it. I’m not sure if the Donald is the cure (he was a whoreocrat a lot longer than he has been a republipimp) I do know–we need no more Bush’s or Clintons–that’s business as usual–that don’t work. PERIOD. With that said–I hope Israel NUKES those useless pricks BEFORE they perfect their nuke–let em live underground for a hundred years–works for me. Out of sight–out of mind. We can slant drill and suk all their oil out–help pay the deficit for all the shit they have caused—and are causing–what a bunch of idiots to think these targets will abide by any deal made—WHAT WORLD DO OBONGO’S MINIONS LIVE IN……… I apologize for the length of the post–so much fuked up shit to address. Tired out

  9. Oh–and I Love Bradley’s books–a good read for sure–I have them all–waiting for the next–not quite as realistic as 299 days series, Mark Goodwin series, the G. Michael Hoff series, the Angry American series, but definitely worth the read–a more “The Walking Dead” aspect. Nature is a peculiar beast and COULD drop this on us–who knows. At some point NATURE could say enough with you parasites–it ends now–been going on for 3 to 5 BILLION years with this planet—just saying
