It’s no secret that the world is on the brink of a significant paradigm shift. With the economy in shambles and the United States, Europe, China and Russia vying for hegemony over global affairs, it is only a matter of time before the powder keg goes critical.

As was the case with World Wars I and II, the chess pieces are being positioned well in advance. It’s happening on all levels – monetary, financial, economic, geo-political. Lines are being drawn. Alliances are being cemented.

We know that a widespread depression is sweeping across just about every nation on earth. The complete collapse of the world we have come to know as it relates to commerce and consumption is a foregone conclusion. We may not know exactly when or how the final nail is driven into the coffin, but we know it’s happening right before our eyes.

Throughout history, when countries have fallen into destitution and despair, their leaders have often resolved their domestic plights by finding foreign scapegoats. This time will be no different – for all parties involved.

In the following interview with Infowars’ Alex Jones, Joel Skousen of World Affairs Brief  leaves nothing to the imagination and outlines what we can expect as East and West face off in coming years.

The trigger is clear. What will follow is nothing short of thermo-nuclear warfare on a massive scale.

The trigger event has to be North Korea… North Korea is the most rogue element in the world and yet it’s been given a pass by the U.S… We don’t do anything to stop its nuclear progress, unlike Iran.

Russia and China… it’s too early… they’re not ready to go to a third world war over Iran…

When you see a North Korean launch against the South… and they do some minor military attack every year, so you’ve got to be careful not to confuse those with a major artillery barrage on Seoul. If this ever starts you know you’re days away from nuclear war. People ought to get out of major cities that are major nuclear targets.

There has to be a reason why North Korea has been preserved… It can only be because the globalists know that they are the puppets of China and that they will be the trigger.

Here’s how I think it’s going down. I think there will be an attack against South Korea. The North Koreans have over two million troops… 20,000 artillery… they can level Seoul in a matter of three or four days. The only way the U.S. can stop that attack is using tactical nuclear weapons.

And that would give China the excuse to nuke the United States. U.S. is guilty of first-use, the U.S. is the bully of the world, Russia and Chinese unite to launch against U.S. military targets. Not civilian targets per say. There will be about 12 or 15 cities that are inextricably connected with the military that are going to get hit that I mentioned in Strategic Relocation… you don’t want to be in those cities.

You may have two days notice when that attack in Korea starts, before China launches on the United States.

And if you ever see everything blackout, because both Russia and China will use a preemptive nuclear EMP strike to take down the grid… before the nukes actually fall… anytime you see all electricity out, no news, nothing at all… that’s the time you need to be getting out of cities before the panic hits.

In his documentary Strategic Relocation, Skousen notes that the reason Russia and China have yet to take action is because they are not ready. But as current events suggest, they are making haste. Iran has apparently deployed warships near US borders and China has continually balked at internationally established air zones, encroaching on U.S. interests. North Korea continues to do whatever it wants, even after sanctions issued again their nuclear development plans by the United Nations. And, given President Obama’s refusal to attend the Olympic games with other world leaders that include Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping, it should be obvious that the relationship between the world’s super powers are strained.

No one is willing to back down. And as we saw in the 20th century, that kind of diplomacy ends with the deaths of millions of people.

No one believed it could happen in the early 1910′s and again in the late 1930′s.

And with a Nobel Peace Prize winner at the helm of the freest nation on earth, not many Americans think it can happen in today’s modern and interconnected world.

But what if history rhymes once again?

Are we really to dismiss the warnings of Joel Skousen simply because it is such an outlier that it is impossible to imagine for most? Or do we look at history, see how such situations have unfolded over the last 5,000 years, and conclude that it is, in fact, possible that it happens again?

The lives of hundreds of millions of people are in the balance. That’s a sobering thought for average people, but mere chess pieces to the elite who sit behind the curtains with their fingers on the buttons.

As before, when the circumstances suit them and the time is right, they will invariably push those red buttons as their predecessors did before them.

Those in target cities in the U.S., Russia, China and Europe will become nothing more than statistics for the history books.

But if you know the warning signs, then perhaps at the very least, you stand a chance.

If you ever wake up one morning and your TV doesn’t work, the internet is down, and your cell phone is off, then you need to assume that your city or region was hit by a super EMP weapon, such as those being developed and tested in North Korea, Russia and China.

As Skousen warns, in such a scenario you’ll have about two days to get out of major cities to a safe location outside of the blast radius. We recommend a number of resources, including Skousen’s Strategic Relocation and Holly Deyo’s Prudent Places, both of which outline safe areas in the United States based on various factors like population density, location of thoroughfares and resource availability.

When it starts all avenues for obtaining critical supplies will be unavailable. Therefore, wherever you are, prepare for the worst by stockpiling reserve food and water. Given the scenario outlined by Skousen, nations may well engage in conventional warfare after the nukes drop, meaning that you’ll need to be prepared to adapt to changing circumstances and know, at the very least, basic military strategies and tactics to evade, defend and attack.

It’s an outlier to be sure. But it’s one that has been experienced by every second or third generation on this planet since the dawn of human civilization.

It may well be our turn very soon.

  1. I’m not sure about Joel Skousen – I listened to a radio interview from 2005 and he was basically saying buy my book because there will be nuclear strikes in 10 years and you need to know where is safe in the US. Well that’s next year and now he’s saying it will be in 8 to 10 years???? Oh and don’t forget to buy his book or DVD – although you can see it for free on YouTube – how nice of him (sarcasm).

  2. This scenario seems to assume that we don’t respond to the EMP attack, which is in itself an act of war and would immediately be taken as such, and then just let nukes hit us a short time later without any response. Bull. We’ll respond, probably as soon as the EMP attack takes place. In fact, based on things that have been leaked over the years, much of our response would be automatic and out of the President’s hands. It seems much more likely that an enemy strike would immediately follow the EMP action anyway; why wait a few days?

    What we know about the nuclear winter research done 30 years ago is this: even if the assumptions are true and we don’t respond, the world is done just from the nukes that are launched. Read Cormac McCarthy’s novel The Road for the global aftermath. Dark and cold everywhere. No crops. No food. No warm weather. For possibly years. No one gains, everyone loses, the only way to win is not to play. Russia and China all lose as well, and everyone dies.

    China and Russia aren’t that damned stupid. In many ways they’re smarter than we are. They concluded years ago, according to some in the know, that the US is in quite obvious decline, so all they have to do, really, is wait. No military attacks necessary.

    Relying on Alex Jones et al. for analysis, combined with selling bullcrap purporting enabling your survival, reminds me of an exchange I had with my late father not long before he died. He said (paraphrased), “I bought some CDs from a guy who says that after this year Obama is going to microchip everyone and track them and… [etc., more hyper-Orwellian stuff].”

    My response: “Dad, this guy doesn’t believe this stuff for a minute. Stop and think. If you really believed we’re all going to be forced to have microchips, are you going to stick around here and sell CDs to the gullible, or are you going to get the hell out of Dodge and take all your liquid assets with you?”

    Dad: “There’s nowhere to go.”

    Me: “Bull. There’s plenty of places to go. Pretty much anywhere in Latin America, for starters, or even Australia and New Zealand. Costa Rica is pretty nice. Any of those places would be better if this guy’s claims are true. So why isn’t he there already?”

    He didn’t have a response. He was in deep thought. The CDs arrived and we found them unopened after his passing.

    Well, same with the materials this website plugs. EMP, nuclear war, and nuclear winter: not a thing like this crap for sale is going to help you survive all that. Say buh-bye instead. Suicide would be better than dealing with the aftermath should you somehow survive thermonuclear Armageddon, anyway.

    Farfetched conspiracy theories + broadly discredited sources with commercial interests + farfetched scenarios that don’t stand up to a moment’s analysis = utter stupidity.

  3. I believe that if nukes didn’t leave uninhabitable radioactive land afterwards, they would have already used them on us.

  4. I really, really hope the OP is wrong. I’d be pretty much dead in that case. Unfortunately, its probably going to happen sometime in my life time.

  5. If a country was hit with a biological attack. how would you know?

    Could you trust that your gooberment would tell you?

    Would they even know?

    Would we only find out after the fact, the same way we found out The Fed was wrong when they said in 2005, “Sub-prime is contained”?

    • Reasons to “help” them with research, like nanotech or biowarfare techniques.

      While the modern labs are much more effective in some ways – mankind accomplished an AWFUL LOT before we had even “clean rooms”…

      Imagine dumping tons of Mustard Gas on DC….
      Can’t be LA, mind, as they would be unaffected. 😉 Too used to the bad air they’re forced to breathe!

      Like the joke about cold in North Dakota (Sent to a US audience, mind.)
      At about 0 Kelvin, North Dakotans remark it’s a might bit nippy… 😉

  6. Wait minute! I thought they had “the war to end all wars” already?

    There’s not a gooberment in the world that wouldn’t gain if such a thing came to pass. Well, their idea of ‘gain’ is an increase in power and an increase in obedience and whoreship of them. So, why not?

    A lot of people talk about forming localized teams to overcome such a calamity. I do not have one of those. Yeesh, as I’ve said before, I don’t even have chickens.

    Does that really matter? People on the lam, or in camps, don’t get to keep their chickens. Let alone their teams.

    Sigh. In the meantime, I’m just glad I don’t have to wade through comments at places such as EPA where people express their love of empire and say how glad they are to do things like join a crowd at an Interstate overpass to wave a flag at an official caravan carrying wayward souls who died while wastefully killing for the empire.

    I imagine my old sports zombie friends would scoff at the idea there even Is such a thing as an EMP weapon. To them, all weapons advancement is confined to what we have now.
    At times, I think that is how the Native Americans viewed the world with their bows and arrows,… then they met up with a soldier carrying a musket.

    • World War One never really ended.

      Pretty much all of the 20th century conflict and the hotspots of today are a result of WW1’s less than satisfactory so-called ‘ending’.

      If there had been no federal reserve there would have been no US entry in to WW1. No US entry into WW1 would have resulted in an equitable peace. An equitable peace would mean no Hitler, no WW2. No portioning of countries like Iraq and Israel. No USA becoming a global empire. No CIA. No military industrial complex. Maybe not even nuclear weapons. So on and so forth.

      A key place to aim a time machine to make a more peaceful world would be to stop the creation of the federal reserve. Then again, who knows what would have happened instead. But considering the millions upon millions dead and the more probably to come, it would be difficult for it to be worse.

      BTW, the article strikes me as the usual fearmongering BS… just buy the guy’s plan to know where to live… just like the psychics who will tell you what won’t end up under water if you buy their maps.

      • You think it’s just ‘fear porn’ BrentP?

        Here’s a part of a comment I left there:

        I dunno, it doesn’t seem like fear porn to me so much as it’s just reality. It’s all a ‘Face the facts, Jack’ kind of thing.

        Do you play chess?

        …Or football?

        Both games are about anticipating moves.

        That’s all this article is doing.

        It seems to me, that saying such contemplations is nothing more than ‘fear porn’ is much like sticking your head in the sand, or covering yourself with a blanket and saying “Fuck You, Thunder!” Eh?

        Just ignore that two ton heavy thing swinging your way?

        • I’ve lived through too many of these now to take anything seriously that ends in a sales pitch of ‘buy my whatever and learn how to survive this coming whatever’.

          Sorry. I should have been dead a dozen times over for not learning where I was supposed to move to.

          These are like the counter thesis to global warming statists. Dooms day is coming pay me and live! It’s all humbug.

      • Indeed, Brent – on both counts.

        WWI has been – rightly – called a 20 year armistice.

        So many tragic historic events. WWI is one. As you note – but the government history books do not – the warring parties were both exhausted by 1917 and, without U.S. intervention, there would almost certainly have been a negotiated peace. No Hitler. Perhaps no Stalin. A different – and probably much better – world.

        Another turning point: RFK’s murder. Had that not occurred, he would have been the Democratic nominee in ’68 and almost certainly president. No Nixon. No Reagan. No “war” on drugs. No HMOs. No Chimp. No Obama.

        I’m not a great fan of RFK’s, but his death assured the ascendance of a very dark element in American politics. Same goes for JFK’s murder. I’ve read that he attempted to undermine the Federal Reserve by having the U.S. government issue debt-free currency. And, based on my reading of a fair amount of histories from all sides and my sense of the man, I doubt he would have pursued the debacle in Vietnam as aggressively as that odious, utterly loathsome sociopath LBJ did. For all his many faults – and I admit that here I might be an unwitting accomplice to the Camelot myth – JFK seemed to be human (unlike LBJ). One of the reasons I say this is his known disinterest in the office, in power. He mainly wanted to fuck a lot of women and have a good time. And he knew his time was short (JFK was a very unwell – congenitally so – man; the Addison’s probably would have killed him by 1970) and this sense of his own mortality gave him a very different perspective and attitude. I’ve read comments he made indicating he didn’t care about truckling to them – the wire pullers. What could they do to him? He was a dead man walking – words to that effect.

        Also, much as I am opposed to government spending (of other people’s money) on anything, at least JFK spent it on things like Mercury, Gemini and – of course – Apollo. An incredible achievement and one that did redound to the incalculable benefit of everyone. I have my entire life regarded it with great sadness that America’s apogee was reached in 1969, the year an American man first set foot on the moon. A brief moment of truly sparkling glory – and then, the maggots trampled it all underfoot.

        Man should be a multi-planet species by now. There ought to be permanent outposts on Mars. Tourist trips to Moon colonies.

        It is sad beyond words.

        • No doubt, eric. But what you wrote is a buncha woulda, coulda, shoulda’s. In fact, it’s quite painful to even contemplate how much better things could have been. Should have been.

          …But here we are, in the here and now. The fucked up’est fucked up world we could never have imagined not even in a million Twilight Zone Outer Limit years.

          The phrase, ‘Game Theory’ comes to mind about now.

          And, it’s every man for himself.

          Anticipation is the name of the new game.

          As they say, ‘Gentlemen, place your bets’.

        • There is what I call the least bad uses of taxation.

          And this is where government isn’t what we see it as today.

          When someone says ‘what about the roads’, I respond if government was reduced to being managers of the roads we would be much better off. Same with space exploration. If government was reduced to an institution dedicated to exploring the universe I could live with it.

          The ‘good works’ that came out of government are few and far between and all could have been accomplished without the wars and mass death and all the evil that has been done.

          It would be nice to see the alternate universes where the fed didn’t happen, the south peacefully left the union and slavery died out under its own accord as unworkable, where JFK wasn’t shot, etc and so on.

        • Spot on Eric,
          The murders of JFK and RFK pretty much sealed our fate 50 odd years ago. They couldn’t be bought off since the family was already among the very wealthy, and when JFK tried to dial back the military-industrial complex after NOT launching nukes at Cuba that must have been the final straw. I was in high school when word came of his death and I never saw as many people in tears as on that day, can’t quite imagine that reaction occurring for any of the recent occupiers of that office, I might even cheer for a few.
          RFK had the temerity to remind J. Edgar Douchebag that as Attorney General, he was actually Hoover’s boss; you can imagine how well that must have gone over. Hoover’s secret files for blackmailing everyone supposedly were never found, but I’m sure they reside somewhere with the FBI, CIA, or other alphabet agency, ready to be trotted out should any futured pols threaten the existence of the current police state.

          • Agreed, Mike.

            I believe that’s why the nostalgia – the lingering sadness for what was lost – has not dissipated. People, at a gut level, sense the truth. JFK, for all his faults, was probably the last president who wasn’t a complete stooge for the corporate interests that have completely run the show ever since.

            And Hoover? It would be difficult to conjure – as a fictional character – a more soul-dead, repellent individual. Even Nixon (reportedly) feared and loathed him – and that says a lot.
