How I Believe The Dollar Will Die

By Ray Gano
I want to say that first of all I am not a prophet nor the son of a prophet nor am I claiming to be a prophet.  I am a watchman on the wall who has been sounding this alarm for over five years now regarding the demise of the dollar. Many people have listened and heeded the warnings.
What you are about to read is based on historical research, observing past and present situations as well as what has happened in other countries that are currently or have gone through a massive economic downfall. We are following these countries almost step by step towards implosion.
I believe that in the near future the dollar will die.
We are over leveraged to the point that a single event within the stock market can now bring this nation to her knees. 
This is not a matter of "IF" it is a matter of "WHEN" and that is a historical fact.
Solomon, the wisest man of all times stated the following…
Ecclesiastes  1:9 (KJV)  The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
Man has not learned his lessons from history, therefore he is destined to repeat the same mistakes over and over again.
How It Will All Go Down          
One day when nothing much is going on with the stock markets, there will be a commodities jump.  Some commodity like gold or oil will "spike" out of the blue.
This will trigger already pre-programmed events and T-Bills / treasuries  will be sold off because that is the only thing of "value" that today's fund manager have at their fingertips.
The reason they will sell these treasuries off is to catch the quick chance to ride the "spike" and cash in on some profits.
What this will do is set into play another series of pre-programmed events at the FED. The FED computers seeing these T-Bills / treasuries  being sold will snatch them up so that they can still maintain the low yields they have been manipulating in order to prevent deflation of the dollar. But the reverse is what will take place.
Because the feds bought up those T-Bills / treasuries this will set into action other asset managers, mega banks  and other funds pre-programmed  events and they too will sell off their T-Bills / treasuries to get in on the FED buying.
All of a sudden, all these computer programs that have been pre-programmed to catch the next profit margin will sell off their T-Bills / treasuries.
 Now mind you, all of this can take place within a matter of minutes before anyone is really aware that this is going on. When someone finally realizes what is going on, it will be too late, the lots will be cast and the damage is already done.
It is at that moment the US dollar will die and the only thing that was "propping up the dollar," the trust and faith of the people in the currency, is also gone.  The trust and faith of the currency was just sold down the river and cannot be recovered no matter what the Federal Reserve, Banks or even the government will do. The death blow has been struck and we have entered upon the path of no return. 
Now that all these fund managers, banks and asset managers have sold off their T-Bills / Treasuries and  they are now sitting on a wad of cash. They  are not going to buy more T-Bills / treasuries because they themselves have lost faith in the dollar a long time ago. They will not reinvest in a already sinking ship. The fact of the matter is that they were praying for that one chance to dump their T-Bills / treasuries and cash them out before the dollar died completely.
So where do these banks, fund managers, asset managers and others put all their money ?
By the end of that incredible day, commodities of all types, precious metals, industrial metals,  oil, foodstuffs, all will increase exponentially.
If you see this happen, it will be your signal to go to the store as fast as you can and buy every bit of food you are able to purchase. Fill all your cars up and any extra gas cans you have. Charge it, write checks, do whatever you need to do. The dollar has gone bust and the world is about to get on the "E" ticket ride on the fastest speeding train ride the world has ever seen.
 See this is the signal you need to keep a serious eye out for.
The important thing to remember is that when this is taking place, stop everything you are doing and get food, gas and draw out as much cash as you can.  
 Why do this? Because ordinary people have not been tipped off yet. Sure we all have lost faith in the dollar, but it will become reality when Wall Street crashes into Main Street in about 3-7 days after this event takes place.
 Now why go out and get all these items no matter what the cost? Once T-Bills / Treasuries are not the sure method of value as viewed by Wall Street, one question will come to everyone's mind.  Where are all those money managers going to stick all these dollars they got from selling off Treasuries?
Will they…
 A - Put it in the bank?
 B - Under Aunt Flo's mattress?
 C - Some overseas currency?
 No. They are going to run to what people have run to throughout history. They are going to start buying up commodities
 When the dollar dies and the faith and trust of the currency called the US Dollar is no more, commodities will be viewed as the only sure place of value, to put one's cash.
 Also, it won't be commodity stocks,  ETF’s, or bonds. These will die alongside with the death of the dollar, because they were based on the value of the US dollar. Anything attached to the dollar will become just as worthless.
 So what we will witness is a major run on actual hard, hold in your hand commodities.
By the end of this panic driven spiral, commodities will have risen between 50% and 100%.
By week’s end, we could very well be looking at an increase of 150% to 250%.
All of a sudden everyone will be on the search to purchase any tangible asset that will hold value. Gold, silver, food, daily use items. The prices for consumable commodities will begin to go through the roof.
 But my personal belief is that it will be silver  that will be the real sky rocket. We could very easily see silver and gold "normalize" and go back to a historical norm of 10 -1 ratio. Today gold is sitting around $1290.00 an oz. 10 % of that is $129.00 that will be the minimum that silver will sell for. But odds are that it will sell even higher because of panic purchasing on Wall Street. It is a very good possibility that gold could reach a $3000.00 to $5000.00 price per ounce. This will put silver in and around $300-$500 per ounce.
What is today's price for silver per ounce? It is sitting around $21.50. Compare that to $300 - $500 per ounce and that is quiet a return on an ounce of silver.
But at this moment  we are still primarily talking / focusing on events taking place on Wall Street.
 Once we see this commodity balloon start to go up, that is when ordinary folks will see their first examples of hyperinflation come into play.
In fact the first place they will probably see hyperinflation is at the gas pump when the prices of gas go up drastically over night.
 I personally believe that it will be oil that will kick off all these events.  If oil spikes from $75.95, which is the price it is sitting at the moment of writing this article to let's say  $150 in one day. The next day it shoots higher and higher. Within three to five days oil is sitting at $300.00 a barrel which is a very feasible scenario.  Panic as well as supply and demand will cause gas to shoot up to $10,  $15, $20 per gallon and possibly even more.
 So what happens next?
Well Wall Street is already in a major panic, this will trickle down to "Main Street."
Remember me stating earlier that when you see these early signals go buy food, gas, and pull your money? Well "main street" is about to wake up and markets and prices of consumable commodities are about to go vertical.
People will storm Walmart and the other stores buying up everything in sight. It will be utter chaos. Bread, noodles, camp fuel, ammo, any daily need products are going to fly off the shelves.
This is why I have been telling people to store up and buy what they can now because we need to view what we are purchasing now as a "hedge" against inflation. For example the week prior you could purchase a 20 lb bag of rice for just $12.00. What is going to happen to that bag of rice when  gas prices go to $15.00 - $30.00 for a  gallon of gas? What about when the laws of supply and demand take effect. What about when hyperinflation becomes a reality?
What people need to realize is that Hyperinflation is not "inflation" at all. Hyperinflation is the complete breakdown in the trust with that countries currency. Because people no longer trust their own currency,  It will take more pieces of paper to purchase stuff. The currency is literally not worth the paper and ink it is printed with.
So what "main street" will do is what they have done throughout history. Exchange currency for commodities. This is why gold, silver, gas, food, camping supplies, anything deemed of value will rise in price and the other, the dollar will be used to paper ones walls, light fires, blow ones nose, etc.
 But here is another effect that will take place that will wipe many people out completely.
Because people have freaked out and have panic-bought basic commodities, their 401K,s IRAs, Savings account, Retirement accounts, stocks, bonds, anything tied to the paper dollar will collapse.
Sure people may have 50,000 - 100,000 - 500,000 in one or more of these methods of saving,  but  when the price of a bag of rice shoots up to $1500.00 a bag, the currency you have becomes pretty much worthless.
Do you know that today a dozen eggs in Zimbabwei, which is still in the beginning stages of hyperinflation costs 1.3 trillion Z Dollars?
If a dozen eggs cost that here in the US when hyperinflation hits, how much will you be able to purchase with your  50,000 - 100,000 - 500,000 in the savings?
So even if you have a lot of dollars, their value is worth nothing. People who were once well off will be dirt poor over night.
What is taking place at that time is that everyone is rushing the banks to get their cash, so that they can turn their worthless cash into any consumable commodity that will retain its value.
Now I know I have covered a lot here, so let's do a quick review.
Here is the sequence…
A spike takes place in oil, gold, some major commodity.
Asset managers dump treasuries for cash so they can catch the spike for a short profit.
FEDs rush in and buy up Treasuries, causing a secondary sell off from other asset managers, banks  & large corporations
The treasury market will tank.
Because of this, a few days later stocks, bonds and other equities to also drop in price like a lead balloon after the treasury sell off panic takes place.
Because all these asset managers "et al" are sitting on cash, they will need to put it somewhere safe, that will be commodities. The prices of gold, silver, oil, food stuff, any commodities of value. The price if these commodities will go vertical.
Simply put equities die, commodities go bust.
Everyone will be rushing to commodities. It is a self perpetuating speeding train. Nothing will be able to stop it nor will anything be able to apply the brakes.
This is where we pick up again…
Where Wall Street Meets Main Street
This speeding train coming from Wall Street will hit Main Street and everyday people will wake up to this fact.  Panic will ensue.
Like the asset managers they will dumping anything they perceive to be of real world value, but for main street these real world assets are cars, trucks, laptop computers, iPods, even houses. All of these items will lose value in order to purchase commodities like gold, silver, food, gas, heating oil, any sort of daily consumable need.
But Ray, gold and silver are not a daily need. You cannot eat gold and silver.
You are completely correct. But the world will still revolve around money and this is where the natural laws of God take effect.
The only true money that is God created and ordained will rise to the surface again. It has never fallen out of favor, has always held its value, and it ALWAYS replaces devalued, depreciated fiat currency. God's only ordained and created form of money is gold and silver.
 What main street people are going to find out is that real-world assets will not go up in value in a hyperinflation scenario. They will drop.  In fact throughout history they have never held their value when the hyperinflation comes.
What happens is that real world assets collapse along with the dollar. In fact they deflate or go down in price in relation to consumables / commodities.
Look at how many people have their wealth locked up in their house.
During a hyperinflation an estimated $250,000 house can easily fall to $50,000 or even less.
 In fact what will happen is real world assets will all of a sudden be pegged to gold and silver. This is God's natural law taking effect.  So the good news is that if you have  50 ounces of silver, you  will be able to purchase that home that has dropped to $50,000. The reason is because in a hyperinflation market real world assets such as a cars, trucks and even a house lose their value and pretty much become worthless, whereas 50 ounces of silver will buy you just about anything  you will need.
Now if you are still reading this and you have gotten this far you might be saying that the government will step in, Wall Street has computers to prevent this, the President will stop it, etc etc.  
Someone somewhere in power will stop this runaway train and apply the brakes and stop the hyperinflation.
 Well the answer is that no one will be able to stop it. Congress, senate, the president, the Feds are all helpless.
This sort of event has happened time and time again. It is all part of the FIAT Currency model. The first time this took place was in ancient Greece. It took place in France, England, Germany, just about every country that has instituted a fiat currency.
Do you know that hyperinflation has taken place in the US twice already?
 Once during the revolutionarily war days and then during the Lincoln administration. In both of these times, a fiat currency was created, the people lost faith, it busted and hyperinflation ensued. It is all there in the history books and they were not able to stop the speeding train either.
So can the FEDS stop this hyperinflation?
No they are the ones that started this whole mess. They can't fix it.
Well can the Federal government stop it? Create more laws, regulations, quite possibly a bank holiday? They probably will try and history shows that when government does step in, they will always devalue the currency. They will split it so now instead of having $100.00 you have $200.00. Problem is that a bag of rice costs $500.00 so splitting the currency will do nothing except to cause prices to shoot up even higher.
Well why not implement price controls? If the government is foolish enough to do this, it will whip lash back into their faces and reappear as rampant black market.
So those ideas will not work.
Many conspiracy websites love to say that soldiers will be put out on the street.
Folks, US men and women in the military are feeling the pain just as much as you are. The military will have a hard enough time just keeping their ranks in order.  You think that we will have it bad? Our men and women in the military will have it worse. Half of military families are already on food stamps, what do you think will happen when hyperinflation takes hold?
Another point you have to remember is that our military is stretched so thin overseas that we can barely hold on to the two fighting fronts we are involved in already.
In other words, there isn't man power enough. America is too big and to even try this basically equates to one soldier per city they must patrol. Are these severely reduced forces going to be able to really do anything? No.
Bring in UN Troops / Foreign troops? This is another popular idea that has floated around on the conspiracy sites.
What many people fail to remember is that by this time the US is going to be a hotbed of chaos.
The introduction of any foreign troops would instantly polarize the nation and all of a sudden  500 million guns that are in the hands of the US public would be pulled out of the closet and it would be open hunting season for any UN / Foreign troop. In other words it would be a blood bath for anyone stepping foot onto US soil. This is a fact. Give chaos a rally point and it will naturally gravitate to it.
What about more stimulus, start up the printing presses, inject more money?
Can't. This is hyperinflation, people do not want the paper dollar in the first place. Commodities are the only true asset of value. Flooding the market with even more worthless cash is not going to help.
What we might see, but this will take time to enact is food / gas rationing. A return to the ration cards like they had during WWII. But by the time this is put into effect  the people will be adapting to the "new normal" and operating within a commodities based economy.  Black and grey markets will already be in effect, people will have learned how to get their needed items. The laws of supply and demand will have already kicked in and a "new normal" economy will take effect.
So by now all of you reading this are asking that one critical question…
What do we do?              
Welcome To The New Normal
See the key to survival is not surviving the nuclear bomb, it is surviving the next day and then the next after the bomb hit.
The same will be the case when Hyperinflation hits.
I used the analogy of a nuke because that is what Hollywood has portrayed. They always show the nuke going off, everyone "ducks and covers," fall out settles and then the happy couple walking off into  the sun set. They never show what takes place after everything settles down and people adapt to the new normal.
If you have read any of my previous articles on preparedness you will know that I do not buy into the Hollywood's idea of the apocalypse. They never take into the boring everyday idea that people eventually will adapt to the new normal and it will become business as usual, just the rules have changed.
It isn't going to be a world filled with mutant biker gangs, nor will there be blood thirsty zombies. No thermal nuclear wasteland, no empty cities.   Nothing that Hollywood said it would be like.
All we need to do is look at countries that have succumbed to an economic disaster already.
For example look at Argentina.
Argentina had a massive economic downfall in December 2001. Their banks closed, money devalued, their world was turned upside down.  They have a massive rise in crime, drugs, prostitution, alcohol, murder, kidnapping, theft, muggings. Argentina went from first world country to a third world country over night.
So what do you do?
How you prepare for hyperinflation is to do just as Noah did.  Create / build your own ark before the event takes place. But this ark is built up of true tangible assets. No equities, stocks, bonds, ETF’s, mutual funds, nothing that is tied to the US Dollar or any other foreign FIAT currency.
 See if and when that hyperinflation thunderstorm takes place, you will have that "ark" you have built to see you through the storm.
When the zenith of hyperinflation takes place there will be a plethora of opportunity that you can then purchase.
Robert Kiyosaki  who I consider one of my mentors, suggests purchasing cash stream producing residential property. He also likes mining, pharma, industrial production and transportation.  At the height of the hyperinflation storm, these will be at rock bottom prices at pennies on the dollar.
A famous quote came from the depression era, when the very same thing took place. That famous quote was "Buy when there is blood in the streets."
I believe that America will end up pretty much like it is today. But it will be a "new normal." We will refer to everything as before "Bank Day" BBD and after "Bank Day" ABD.  Crime will be higher, jobs will be scarce, food and gas prices will be 300% - 400% higher. But we will adapt and over come as we always have.
Another thing that quiet possibly will come out of this that has not happened before in other countries is that we will return to God. This country was founded on biblical principles, it is who we are and it is those ideals that influence us at our core as a people.
This nation always has a "great awakening" to God the father, the  Creator of the universe after every great financial upheaval.
Finally, turning the ship around after hyperinflation hits will take 15 - 20 years. It took approximately 25 years for our last depression, it will probably take that same amount of time for us to get back on the right track after this one.
Just look at Argentina, here it is 2010 and she is still in the throes of economic chaos and it is nine years after their event took place.  Look at Japan, she lost two decades due to her economic downfall. Did either of these countries fall into apocalyptic chaos? Mutant biker gangs? Zombies? Wastelands?
No and it will not happen here either.
What will help us speed up the healing of this nation will be a word that many people do not want to hear nor accept.
That word is sacrifice.
Will we be willing to take on three to four hard years of sacrifice so that we can emerge a healed nation faster?
I doubt it, but if we as a nation repent of our sins and turn back to the Lord anything is possible.  But to do this we will need strong men and women to boldly preach the gospel.  Godly people will need to show that man is lost but can be saved from the fires of Hell through the blood of Jesus Christ our Lord. We will need to return to being accountable to Jehovah God.
Getting through this coming economic storm just might be what the doctor ordered to return this nation to what she once used to be, a good and great nation that fears God and His Son, Jesus Christ.
But I am sorry to say that history shows another solution, at least in other nations.
What has always come out of the economic upheaval is a strong charismatic leader.
They will return (force) the nation back to a gold and silver based economy.
The good of the "people" outweighs the good of the one.
The good of the nation outweighs the good of the family.
The state becomes their god and the dictator their high priest.
This is the solution that brought about Caesar, Napoleon, and someone we all have heard of, Adolf Hitler.
All these great leaders were born out of economic upheaval.
All lead their nations to greatness quickly.
All ruled with an iron fist and they all did away with dissidents who stood against them.
Often these dissidents were good men and women who maintained a moral fortitude and in most cases that was backed up by their belief in the one true God Jehovah and His Son Jesus Christ.
It is hard to say what the future will hold. There are so many paths that we can travel down. But man in all his wisdom always seems to choose the path of least resistance instead of the path of good.  At least that is what history has shown.
The US was born out of the desire for religious freedom, and that is what makes us a different nation. We have survived two other economic upheavals resulting in hyperinflation, we will survive the third. But how we come out on the other side can be anyone's guess. History shows that our last "great awakening" took place after the civil war's hyperinflation, the late 1800s.
Although many turned to the Lord in the great depression of the 1920-30s, it was not like the prior revival of the late 1800s.
In all of this, we as bible believing Christians will need to stand in this evil day or there is the chance that we will  fall by the wayside. What will take place depends  on what we do now. We can either prepare and build our ark for the sake of the gospel, or bury our heads in the sand and ignore the lessons of the past.
I pray that there are enough who love the Lord that will work hard to build an ark for the good of protecting and freely sharing the gospel.  Because the other option will result in utter tyranny and oppression like no other.
I leave you with what God's Word says…
Ecclesiastes  1:9 (KJV)  The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
Proverbs  6:6 (KJV)  Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:
Proverbs 30:25 (KJV)  The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer;
Joshua  24:15 (KJV)  And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

One World Currency - Step By Step

By Ray Gano
Last week I wrote an article titled " USPS Now Converting US Dollars To Global SDRs."  Needless to say I have been generating a lot of questions out there. The primary one is "Will there be a one world currency?"
My answer, not only is there going to be a one world currency, it is already here and in the works.
As I showed in my previous article the US Post Office is already trading in what is called SDRs, or Special Drawing Rights. SDRs are becoming the defacto Global Currency Reserve.
But this is not the final solution.
We as Students of bible prophecy know and understand that the Antichrist will create a one world currency that will envelope legal, political, religious and social aspects.
I am one that believes that things do not take place over night. Man needs time to adjust and adapt to change. Otherwise chaos ensues and "the herd" is dispersed.
Background on The Enemy
You and I know the enemy. His name is Lucifer AKA Heylel Ben-Shachar
In the Bible, the Hebraic text in Isaiah 14:2 refers to Helel Ben Shachar or Heylel Ben-Shachar (היללבן שחר). Helel Ben-Schachar is translated into English as “O shining star, son of the dawn!" The name Lucifer is a translation of Helel Ben-Shachar into Latin by St. Jerome in the fourth century. Lucifer derives from two Latin words, lux (light) and fero (to bear–to bring), meaning light-bearer, light-bringer. The Bible identifies Lucifer as Devil, Satan, serpent, dragon, dweller of hell and other names. (1)
Knowing that the enemy is driven by pride and ego, he always shows his hand in a secret way announcing his intentions.
The enemies move to shift the world from multiple currencies to that of a single global one world currency was recently announced. And like many of the announcements of the enemy, it went unnoticed by many.
 Back in April of this year (2010) a paper was released by the Strategy, Policy and Review Department of the IMF (International Monetary Fund) titled  “Reserve Accumulation and International Monetary Stability”
In this document the IMF recommends that the world adopts a global currency called the "Bancor." But that is not all, what is also proposed is a single global central bank be created to administer the currency.
Folks, this is not conspiracy talk, black helicopters, or little green men.  The IMF, through this document is telling the world of its intentions of running the world's economy. Let me say very clearly, what the IMF wants, the IMF will eventually get.
The Bancor is coming… step by step.
 About The Bancor
The following is what Wikipedia states about the Bancor.
The Bancor was a World Currency Unit of clearing that was proposed by John Maynard Keynes, as leader of the British delegation and chairman of the World Bank commission, in the negotiations that established the Bretton Woods system, but has not been implemented.[2]There are some suggestions from the IMF of the possibility of its use in future.[3][4]
It was to be initially fixed in terms of 30 commodities, of which one would be gold. It would stabilize the average prices of commodities, and with them the international medium of exchange and a store of value.
In practice, until the collapse of the Bretton Woods system in 1971, gold itself filled this role, with the U.S. dollar fixed to gold and many other currencies fixed to either the U.S. dollar or directly to gold.
There have been variations on the model of the Bancor recently, such as having a currency unit for regional trade organizations such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations), etc. In this model the commodities that would be placed into the pool would be limited to a fixed number of the currencies of the partner nations, and this would be done on an annual basis with agreement on prerequisites for withdrawal.
Step By Step - The SDR
As I have said, I do not believe in things happening overnight. To numb the senses of the masses, steps towards the final goal need to be taken. You can move a herd of cattle to the slaughter house very easily as long as it is done slowly and methodically otherwise the cattle go every time.
The same goes for people.
We have been moving towards a single global currency for some time now and a major step in that direction was when the SDR or Special Drawing Rights was established. But it was just a step in the direction that the IMF wants the world to go.
In the IMF document “Reserve Accumulation and International Monetary Stability” the report does say that  SDRs will become the "principal reserve asset" as the world moves towards a single currency.
The report states:
“As a complement to a multi-polar system, or even—more ambitiously—its logical end point, a greater role could be considered for the SDR.”
But  the report also states that SDRs have some serious limitations. What is that limitation? Well currently the SDR is tied to national currencies So with SDRs being tied to national currencies, when said currencies go up, the SDR goes up. When said currencies go down, like what is taking place today, the SDR goes down.
Here is the breakdown of the "basket" of currencies that the SDR is tied too:
*U.S. Dollar (44 percent)
*Euro (34 percent)
*Yen (11 percent)
*Pound (11 percent)
As we all know the dollar is not doing too well and in fact the trust of the people is starting to wain against the dollar. This effects the value of the SDR and the IMF does not like that.
So the IMF needs to move away from the U.S. dollar as the world reserve currency and urges the adoption of a currency unit that would be truly international.
But that is not the only reason. The fact is that SDRs are a pain in the rear to use. To obtain SDRs, people need to purchase them in their own currency, then use them, then the person who received the SDRs need to convert them into their own currency.
It is this trading, converting, back and forth that really limits their usefulness according to the IMF report….
“A limitation of the SDR as discussed previously is that it is not a currency. Both the SDR and SDR-denominated instruments need to be converted eventually to a national currency for most payments or interventions in foreign exchange markets, which adds to cumbersome use in transactions. And though an SDR-based system would move away from a dominant national currency, the SDR’s value remains heavily linked to the conditions and performance of the major component countries.”
So what is the answer?
Well, as stated by the IMF report, they believe that the adoption of a true single global currency administered by a central global bank is the answer.
Enter the Bancor
In reading the IMF report the IMF thinks that it would be a great idea that the Bancor be introduced as a stable global currency throughout the entire world.
Like the adoption of the Euro, the Bancor would be accepted everywhere along with that countries own currency. People would naturally gravitate to a stronger more stable currency over that of their own currency.
I have to say that if I was offered a means to protect my assets with a stable method of exchange, AKA currency, I know that I would purchase it. I do not have faith in our dollar. The current as well as past administrations have incurred debt that is impossible to pay off. That is a fact.
Knowing this, eventually the US will default on loans. In the day of digital money that we live in the dollar will go down the tubes in a matter of hours. There will not be enough time to pull money from the bank, inflation will instantly kick in and in a matter of days there will be a national financial emergency. The president will declare a bank holiday and close all the banking institutions.  Chaos will erupt and millions of middle class people will see their life savings wiped out.
That is unless people have thought ahead and maintained their wealth in a solid method of exchange (currency) or better yet a method of wealth (gold, silver, tangible assets)
But I am digressing here.
The IMF thinks it would be a solution to the world's problem if one single currency would be put in place. The IMF report clearly calls out the need for the Bancor to ride along side of nation's currencies.
 “One option is for Bancor to be adopted by fiat as a common currency (like the euro was), an approach that would result immediately in widespread use and eliminate exchange rate volatility among adopters (comparable, for instance, to Cooper 1984, 2006 and the Economist, 1988). A somewhat less ambitious (and more realistic) option would be for Bancor to circulate alongside national currencies, though it would need to be adopted by fiat by at least some (not necessarily systemic) countries in order for an exchange market to develop.”
AND what will naturally be needed is a global central bank to administer this new one world currency.  This central bank is something like the current Federal Reserve today. But what is very troublesome is that it will be completely outside the control of any particular national government….
“A global currency, Bancor, issued by a global central bank (see Supplement 1, section V) would be designed as a stable store of value that is not tied exclusively to the conditions of any particular economy. As trade and finance continue to grow rapidly and global integration increases, the importance of this broader perspective is expected to continue growing.”
In fact, the IMF report makes no bones about it and compares this coming global central bank to the Federal Reserve….
“The global central bank could serve as a lender of last resort, providing needed systemic liquidity in the event of adverse shocks and more automatically than at present. Such liquidity was provided in the most recent crisis mainly by the U.S. Federal Reserve, which however may not always provide such liquidity.”
Folks, just in case you do not know this; the Federal Reserve has nothing to do with the federal government. It is a privately held company whose stock you can purchase from the stock exchange. It is run by a cartel of elite bankers, financiers, businessmen and they are the real power behind the curtain.
In creating a central global bank like the one being proposed, it enables the power of the world to be easily wielded  by one single person, the head of that central bank. The likes of an Allen Greenspan or Ben Bernenke would head this bank up.
As I have said, what the IMF wants, the IMF gets. Knowing this, we will eventually have the Bancor and a central global bank running the show. Power will be given to a group of people headed by a single man.
Now do you see how easy it would be to control the masses by one single man?
Scriptures say…
Revelation 13:16-18 KJV And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18  Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
Slowly the stage is being set. The enemy in all his pride and egotism is laughing at man  and his ignorance as he makes his plans right before our eyes and no one seems to even be paying attention.
That ol' worm Heylel Ben-Shachar is playing his game and man is falling for it. Eventually he will demand that man take a mark to identify himself as one of his. Those who do not will lose their head as a martyr of our  Lord Jesus Christ.
But for that to take place, there are still some steps that need to be established. We who are here now will face some if not all of this setting of the stage. While we are here we need to be ready always to preach the word, share the gospel and occupy till HE returns.
The time is now to prepare and be ready, not run off to some corner and hide. We have a responsibility to our Lord, it is our reasonable service.
One Final Note
There is today a system already in place. In fact this system envelopes all legal, political, religious and social aspects. It is the system that is spreading like a cancer and it is the Antichrist will use to rise to power. As I stated, the game that our pride filled egotistical enemy likes to play is hiding things right before our eyes. It really is the best place to hide something. This legal, political, religious, and social system many do not want to acknowledge and in fact many are already welcoming and defending its right to be spread;  is Islam and it is right before our eyes. In its system is everything that scripture describes that the Antichrist will use to come to power.
 It is here now and within 20 years it will have established a global government dedicated to its god Allah.
Who by the way is also known as Heylel Ben-Shachar - which literally translated from God's word means Crescent Moon - Morning Star.

The Shotgun and My Reasons Why You Need One

The shotgun is probably the most versatile firearm that you can own and I believe that every prepper needs to have at least one in their home armory.
Now I know that there are folks out there that disagree with me, but it is more powerful than a handgun, but it does not have the range of a rifle. It also lack in its limited magazine capacity.
But what I wanted to do is give you my reasons why you should own a shotgun.
Reason 1 - Price.         
Like it or not, the first question everyone is concerned about is money. Good news is that you can go to just about any sporting goods store that offers firearms and find shotguns. They are everywhere and they are cheaper than the other alternative a AR-15 or a AK-47. 
If you have $200-$300 dollars you can walk into your local sporting goods store, gun shop or megastore and easily walk out with a shotgun under your arm.   
Knowing this, you can quickly save the money needed and within a week or two, you can upgrade your preps plan and add a shotgun in your home armory.
Now I did mention an AR-15 or AK-47, but those cost considerably more and the goal of this book is to get you ramped up with your preps as fast as possible. Once you are adequately prepped, you can then start expanding.
Reason #2 - Diffferent types of Ammunition
As I mentioned in a previous chapter there is a whole mix of different ammo that you can purchase for the shotgun and you can very your loads also.
Assuming you can carry at least 5 in the tube. You can make your first round bird shot for close range. They will not blast through walls and if it does, they lose its velocity really quickly.
Secondly you can put a couple of "00" buck shot followed by a couple of slugs.
Here is a home defense scenario.
It is late at night and you hear a noise in your home. You then hear multiple voices coming from the front of the house. Sitting next to your bed is your trusty Mossberg 500 and you have prepared just for this type of situation.
You know your home so you use the corners and concealment to your advantage. You see the first bad guy and he  has got a gun sticking out of the front of his pants. He is at a close range, and your first round in your shotgun is bird shot. At this range it will cut him to ribbons and take him out.
You fire and bad guy #1 goes down.
The second bad guy you see is coming towards you , he is to be a bit further but that is ok, your second round in the stack is buck shot  and it will take that person out before he reaches you.
You do not know if there is another bad guy, but you have another round of "00" Buck ready and waiting.
All of a sudden bullets are coming through the front window.  There is another bad guy who was driving the car. You have that Buck shot chambered already, so you fire busting out the car windows. But that is not all, you have some slugs that will go some distance in the stack and they do a lot more damage.
Bad guy #3 took up a position outside the car and is now shooting blindly through the blown out car windows. He is using the ol' spray and pray method and is not coming even close to where you are. You chamber the slug knowing these will go through walls as well as car doors. BLAM…CLICK CLACK…BLAM. Two slugs down range and both right on target. It is quiet. Taking more buckshot from you’re the rifle butt carrier you load more buckshot into your shotgun.
You have eliminated the bad guys. Your practicing this exercise over and over again has paid off, you and your family are safe and the bad guys are finished.
Yes this is kind of glorified, but this is a good example of stacking the different rounds in your shotgun anticipating the need.
There is bird shot, which is good for small game for food, or can be used for close quarter indoor defense.  There is upland game rounds where the "BB's" are bigger and pack a meaner punch. 00 buckshot, which is like sending 8 rounds of 9mm down range and then there is the slug. I big 50mm hunk of lead that is like a cannon ball hitting you. There is also many different types of rounds in between these I have named.
Shotgun even has the ability to shoot rounds that contain non lethal bean bags, rubber bullets, even small nets that deploy when the exit the shotgun bore.
So the variety of shotgun rounds are pretty extensive and for every need, there probably is a round to meet that need.
Reason #3 - Power and Performance
The power that the shotgun delivers beats a handgun hands down. Where the handgun has maneuverability and high capacity; the shotgun delivers a deadly volly of BBs, Buckshot and slugs .  They have been the weapon of choice for law enforcement. In fact the term "riding shotgun" comes from when there was a driver of the stagecoach and then the person acting as security who carried a sawed off double barrel shotgun. Shotguns were used during the bloody trench warfare  of WWI. The allies brutalized the Germans so badly with the shotgun that they protested their use and threatened to instantly execute any of the troops found in possession of them.
During Vietnam they were used by the tunnel rats who went deep into the Viet-Cong tunnels clearing out the enemy.
Fast forward to today and our military boys stationed in Iraq have used the shotgun effectively to clear out buildings in building to building searches seeking out the enemy.
Reason #4 - Easy To Maintain
Most shotguns are very easy to maintain.  In fact breaking down a pump shotgun is easy and with a little practice you can even change out to a different barrel depending on the situation that you are using your shotgun. There are plenty of different cleaning solvents and oils, that you can use and most if not all can be used on the common shotgun with no problem. In fact if things get bad, you can even use gasoline or diesel fuel with a bamboo pole with a cut up "T" shirt and get your shotgun clean. It isnt rocket science and it is made to keep it simple.
Reason #5 - Different Roles a Shotgun Can Play
The basic pump shotgun can play a vast array of different roles and gladly takes on those roles and performs. For example you can pull your long hunting barrel off and put on the  shorter home defense barrel and already your shotgun has changed from recreation tool to a "get the bad guys" defensive weapon. You can swap out the the common wooden stock and replace it with a cammo or flat black nylon stock and front forearm. You can even get dual pistol grips, one for the trigger and one for the forearm and you have a tactical weapon at the ready.
There are flashlights, lasers, 20 round bandoleer slings. You can get scopes, red dot sights, even holographic heads up sights for your shotgun. You can get a short barrel or a long barrel, even one the is between the two sizes. Folding stocks, collapsible stocks, even no stock using a single pistol grip. If you can think it up, odds are they have it for the shotgun.
The shotgun is capable of wearing many different hats and with each one, be just as effective for the role you have made for it.
Reason #6 - Protected by the Law
Even with all the different roles the shotgun can play, it is still seen as a sporting arm by legislators and because of this it will be the last type of weapon to be banned or have legislation drawn up against it. You can even own a shotgun is some of the most anti-gun havens in the US. New York they are legal to own, even in Chicago where handguns have been completely banned, a shotgun is legal to own.  This in and of itself is something that the modern day prepper needs to remember and why I say every home needs to have at least one shotgun in the home armory.
So we have discussed why "I" think ever home needs a shotgun, now lets talk about the type of gun that is good for you.
Choosing the Gauge
Ok I can hear it now, "what is the gauge?"
The gauge is the size of the diameter of the barrel measured from the rear of the weapon. It is the gauge that determines the size of round your shotgun can fire.
There are different "gauges" of shot gun, the most popular, starting with the smallest is 410, then 20 gauge, then the most popular, 12 Gauge.
There are other big bore gauges like 10 and 8, but these are not very common and ammo is at a premium, if you can find it.
The 410 Shotgun
The 410 is a small bore round, about half the diameter of a dime or a little bigger than a #2 pencil is round. This shotgun is usually a boy's first shotgun. Commonly it is a breach break and you have to feed one round per shot. These are good for small game and dove as well as taking  care of vermin like rats, snakes and mice. They have very little kick at all and I do not recommend them to be used in a home defense role. They really do not have the firepower, but can be used as a backup weapon if a fire fight ensues.
Rounds include snake shot, bird shot, upland game, buck shot (3-4 balls) and slug with some other sizes in between.
The problem is that because the round is so small in diamieter, it does not carry enough projectiles to be used as a primary home defense weapon. But I think it is a good weapon to have if you have a young teenage boy or girl learning to hunt and shoot. It is a good gun to start them out with.

The 20 Gauge Shotgun
The choice most people get when it comes to a shotgun is usually a 12 gauge, but once they really start shooting it, their shoulders wished they would have taken a 20 gauge.
For a home defense weapon that everyone in the family can use, I recommend a 20 gauge. It has enough fire power to it to be effective but not quiet the kick that a 12 gauge has. This is a very woman and teenager friendly shotgun. Teaching everyone how to use and be effective with a 20 gauge is a very good home defense solution. One can not say that the "man of the house" will be within arms reach of the shotgun. Having one that both the wife and kids can effectively use is a very smart tactical solution. This is why I like the 20 gauge for an all around general home defense shotgun as well as a good weapon to hunt with.
The 12 Gauge Shotgun
For most preppers out there, the hands down standard for the shotgun is going to be a 12 gauge pump. As we discussed you can pick one up just about anywhere that sells firearms.
There is also the semi-auto shotguns which are great, but with more working parts calls for more chance of something going wrong. And you just cant break down a semi auto shotgun and do a quick repair on it; where with a pump you can usually pull it apart, find the problem and get back in the action.
Where pump shotguns are pretty inexpensive, the cost of a semi-auto shotgun is three to four times that of a pump. Sure you can find some that are less expensive, but they jam up, break and aways at the worse possible moment. Now are you willing to bet your life and the life of your family on a cheap semi-auto shotgun?
Then there is the issue of  parts. It takes more parts to cycle that semi-auto than there are parts in the standard pump shotgun. These parts will wear out and eventually break and again usually at the worse possible time.
There is the issue of bad feeds and finicky ammo. Where a pump shotgun will "eat" almost any round you put in the magazine. Semi-autos have been known to not like all rounds or sizes which result in the weapon jamming. If a pump jams up, it is relatively easy to clear, were if a semi-auto jams up, well you are basically out of the fight till you can clear that jam.
My Choices of Shotgun
Well when it comes right down to it, there really are only two choices. The Remington 870 and The Mossberg 500.

Mossberg 500
Personally I like the Mossberg 500 but when you butt up weapon to weapon, both are excellent and dependable shotguns. These two are probably the most famous and the most owned shotguns out there. They are both affordable, you can find them at almost any sporting goods store, mega mart and gun shop out there. Both Mossberg and Remingtion make different varieties of the individual shotgun.
For example, I own a Mossberg 500® TACTICAL TURKEY™ Series pump shotgun.


Here is the same model but it has been totally made into a tactical weapon

This Mossberg 500 has a  front and rear pistol grip, a modified butt that holds 6 extra rounds, the Tactical Turkey is already drilled for a scope but this person has added a weaver rail to the top so that they can use a red dot or a holographic rear site. This is a fine example of how one can modify their shotgun, specifically the Mossberg 500 Tactical Turkey series.
Remington 870
The Remington 870 Sportsman Synthetic.
As I have said, it is a toss up between the two. They are both fine weapons and the Mossberg wins by just a hair.
Actually when I was going to purchase my shotgun, I was using an older gun for a trade in. I had limited amount of cash and I had my eye on a Remington 870 Sureshot Super Turkey. I really liked the feel of this weapon with its Monte Carlo stock with built in pistol grip. But it was slightly out of my price range on what I had budgeted myself.

I would recommend it to anyone looking for a shotgun. With the Monte Carlo pistol grip set up, this was a very comfortable shotgun.
Both of these shotguns come in 12 gauge and in 20 gauge. What you need to do head on down to your local gun shop and feel both of these. Look at all their features as well as the third party add ons.
In fact, regarding third party add ons, the Mossberg 500 has a few more things out there over the Remington 870 and besides the price, it was that ability to have the opportunity to add a few more modifications that finally won me over to the Mossberg 500.
Either of these will fit the bill and will serve you for a long time to come.
Get a shotgun while you still can and while they are still affordable. A day may come when you wish you did.
