malthus with a whimper 2


MALTHUS WITH A WHIMPER 2
America is largely a nation of Short Cutters. We have gotten so spoiled and are so steeped in luxury and leisure, we almost always pick the easy solution to any problem ( which assumes we just don't ignore the problem to begin with ). The economic crash today is a result of all the easy answers we decided upon in 2008. Such as allowing a strategic asset to move overseas. Not just computer chips for our computerized military, into communist China, but worse than that. We can always defend with militia, if we make up our minds to do so. Our current military is just an albatross left over from the PetroDollar.
*
Which is dead and has been dead and which is also a large part of the current economic mess. No, I'm talking about artificial fertilizer. The bankers played their reindeer games with a oil industry the US no longer controls internationally, and the paper oil price zoomed to $140. In a blind panic, a LOT of the fertilizer companies off shored. They went overseas, to cheaper feedstock prices. And like a lot of chemicals no longer coming from China, we kind of friggin need fertilizer, in this case to grow our food. Not a problem, barely an inconvenience, I hear the crowd of Ollies proclaiming.
*
We'll just ramp our industry back up. Oh, you mean like our pharmaceuticals and car and tractor and semi parts? We can't even manufacture our own masks, which a grade schooler with glue and a stapler could manage. We. Don't. Manufacture. Essentials. Here. Period. We spit on redundancy and maximized efficiency and we are now paying that bill. ALL decisions have consequences. We thought Exceptional Americans could bypass that bill. Because we deserve it and owed ourselves. Welcome to the jungle, bitches.
*
With most of the world on lock-down ( and I'm wondering how much this cooperation is due to countries following China's lead of passive aggressive attacks against the US by pretending the Virus is holding up trade-with a future expectation of the new superpower favoring them ), is fertilizer being shipped over here for Spring planting? Will there be a computer virus directed at John Deer farming equipment, while the Internet is still working ( or, conversely, will the US shut down the Internet, using “computer virus attack” as the pretext, the real reason being a stoppage of information? Remember, the system is humped. Might they not care if Internet financial transactions cease? )?
*
Before, I've theorized that one way to explain the complete stupidity of our political and banker elite is that they are in fact no longer managed by the Rothschild's, but rather were cast adrift on their own, the puppets at the head of the local organizations no longer receiving marching orders but were instead left to administer the parasite mechanisms themselves. Which they are unqualified to do. Like the Mafia younger retarded son told to go supervise a bankrupt city. He might extract a little more wealth, but the Family wasn't wasting resources to do so.
*
I understand it is a bit of a fanciful theory, but certainly it isn't impossible or improbable. Red Shield ( for new minions, that is the translation from the German for Rotes Schild ) does occasionally go to ground at the end of an extraction cycle, their wealth parked in real assets. It would explain the Full Retard behind every move we are seeing. But enough of that. We just need to know the system IS failing, our Dear Leaders know this full well ( true leaders, not figure heads ).
*
They can see the systemic failings ahead of us. Their only concern is to keep us cooped up in isolation, stressed about money instead of food ( but, food also, with a false dash of hope the quarantine only lasts two weeks ). They can survive on drive-thru ( They Hump You In The Drive Thru ) breakfast and lunch, with a can of soup from a dwindling supply for dinner. And since they all have a few bucks of credit left, they are just eating on credit, on the last restaurant supplies in the distribution chain.
*
If there is a three day supply of food in the system, and we are seeing 150% of the semi-truck traffic as before, and every truck is full of food, why are all the shelves still empty? Assume 30% of the food flowed daily. One third of the shelves emptied daily, and were then filled. If we tripled the semi's with food, by eliminating all other goods not consumable, and only 50- 80% of the food is gone from the shelves ( still junk food and seasonings, and specialty items like gluten free pasta or frozen Lithuanian Goulash ), AND restaurant sales are down because of the non-inside-seating policies, WHERE IS THE FOOD???
*
I understand it is too early to be impacted by the lack of fertilizer. Unless last years harvest was much worse than reported ( remember all those temporary plastic on the ground grain silo's that precluded weighing and recording? ), and that would explain a lot, from the trade war almost purposely forcing China to refuse our food. To the attack on the swine, chickens and wheat over in China. We might have been so low in supply we had to keep the food we had to cover up our shortages from the public. Give the US bioweapon time to shut down the economy.
*
I know I'm kind of mixing apples and oranges here, as the economic collapse was one thing, and the harvest shortages another ( remember, other areas couldn't send us grain/beans, with failures of their own to include those locusts ). Or, they just both happened pretty much together. Along with the Peak Fracking Oil. All coming together to force the Virus issue as a control mechanism. We needed people distracted and isolated. The Virus itself is no walk in the park with your pet unicorn, but it ain't the Black Plague either. There is a reason the government is doing the only thing it is good at, fighting us. And they are just a lackey for the bankers, withdrawing after the end of the wealth extraction.
*
So, my advice, or at least what I am doing, is to watch very carefully a stealth die-off, in the form of food not replenished, spotty Internet ( blamed on “everyone working from home” ) to kill information, the police harassing those trying to group together for information or planning ( evil militias ) and whatever other ploy it takes to keep us tied up as they allow us to die-off.

  1. Jim,
    Good morning and wishing you and yours a good weekend.

    We are so screwed, we are darn near doomed, at least the
    majority are because they did not plan ahead. PTB etc. are
    keeping the lid on for now with the shelter in place edict.
    Open things up by Easter my eye.

    Wealth extraction is the right term for these times. The
    gov is proving that with their pork barrel add-ins to the
    virus rescue monies allocations. Looting is the correct
    term for what came B4. Now we can use looting and mayhem
    for what will be occurring in cities.

    Bpod is a good term. I only have the Apod which is in the
    middle of nowhere. Summer tourist trade kept the area
    alive forever, but no more. I will be hit, living in the
    120 yr old farmhouse "retirement home" for near a decade
    now. The big city vibe was caustic B4...it is much worse
    now. And the city will drive north for easy pickings among
    the farms and "rurals" that dwell in these parts.

    Crime will eventually soar, and we will all be South Africa
    at some point. Any optimism I held is worn through about now.
    It is good to get a dose of reality everyday.

    Thank you Jim,
    Suzanna

  2. "Will there be a computer virus directed at John Deer farming equipment”



    Speaking of John Deere tractors, I once worked with a guy that came from a farming background. He said that they were awesome tractors, but that parts availability, or cost of parts (I don’t remember which?) were either hard to get, or expensive. There must be some truth to it, because I’ve noticed that on all the commercial farms around here, they all use John Deere tractors. And as the old saying goes, nothing runs like a Deere (Except for a middle eastern virgin, and that’s only because she can out run all of her male family members :D )

    2. I think you might be referring to the Kubota? Those are also quite expensive, even for the little hobby farm version. Mahindra’s another one that you’re starting to see pop up a lot more. But I’m not sure, because those foreign tractors all look the same to me :D

    3. That's the one. I have no idea on the cost-it all seems insane to me what stuff in the cloud economy went for.

  3. So... unemployed chap will accrue 26 weeks of payments for a regular state period, additionally gets 13 weeks more federally added on extension, will get 600 extra a month above state amounts, (?@ $360.00 week in nv.) And will get the 1200 single stipend with more if there are kids. So why would any of these folks be in a hurry to get to work or be able to maintain a work ethhic? Money printer goes; "BRRR." This is not going to be the soft landing people expect.

  4. I forayed / recon-ed for hermitage stuff at lowes and bug out vehicle parts at carquest. They were stocked as usual, just slower business, not untowards a general assesment. I expect food stuffs to be tight as folks eating home is just shifting demand locations to retail, versus commercial or institutional prole face feeding and serving outlets. The bum squads have to compete in handout lines more so with the newly out of work Okies types as well. There is less handout panhandling opportunities, and scraps of resources laying about or available to procure. They are getting antsy thus mobile, like roaches in warmer weather. LEOs are now using a bit more suppression type methods of saturation policing to force project. Jungle dynamics. I really dislike leaving the compound anymore, only as gear necessity needs, but may have to scout out or recon a bit further out and at varied target objectives, infrastuctures, etc to get a better accurate view of all the little puzzle pieces and scraps of intel. The media and net is like a bunch of friggin parrots in a cage repeating the same cult recitals. Use indian method of ear to ground if necessary for accuracy. Staying frosty.

  5. I was doing a little internet investigation last night. Wally wheat seems to be on hold, they have been out of hard red, but now they don't even have the white. In fact, the only Augason farms stuff still showing as available is brown rice, dehydrated carrots and hash brown potatoes. A check of Augason Farms site said they are not taking any new orders and are just fulfilling existing orders. I found a place online selling hard red in 50 lb bags, but shipping is as much as the wheat, 20 bucks a bag. At least rice and beans are still available in my area.

    5.56 ammo is just about as bad. Some .303 stuff seems available.

    Kubotas are dang good, but their parts must be gold plated. The only thing I have seen that will ruin one is starting fluid, busts the rings right out of the cylinders. An old Ford 9N is perfectly fine if you want a tractor.

    1. Now, ain't that odd. 303 still on the shelves. Only buy current military production, they said. Common caliber, they said. Not that I'll be right, either, as soon as the feed stores can no longer get wheat. About the same week I get my Trump Money, I imagine.

  6. Jim,
    In today's newsletter (email) you mentioned that you scored some potatoes.
    I just want to pass along to the fellow minions that if they live in the southeast as I do, they can store fresh potatoes under the house in the crawl space. (that's what most have in these parts.)

    Take the spuds that ya get, and place a plastic "rack" (I use old flower pot trays.) Place a piece of burlap on the rack and lay the spuds out in a single layer. Dust with food grade diatomaceous earth, and cover with another piece of burlap.

    I found this on youtube several years ago and have done it since, when spuds are on sale. I get 3 or 4 months of storage using this method. Note: they will still start to grow and get a Lil' bit softer, but they will last a lot longer than in the house.

    Also, I want to give a shout out to Large Marge. I started taken the Selenium that she recommended.

    Thanks LM.

  7. Sit rep from the boonies. I hiked to the second property, as a crow flies 80 miles. I would say with detours and some backtracking I probably walked 110. Had a river crossing that I had to find a alternative route across. Starting with a 35lbs. pack it ended up taking me a week. This was during daylight and still normal times. I think this jaunt might take twice as long during the spicy times, walking at night only and carrying a long gun and ammo.
    I spent my days camping, and developing the spring. I dug a 14 foot diameter hole 5 feet deep for the dome.
    I never saw any people but the bears are done hibernating and are out looking for a snack, scaring me out from under my tarp while trapped in my fart sack.
    A trip to property one was required for a underwear resupply and to get the van with it's pallet of cement. I rode the mountain bike I had stashed, using the bike motor really helped out. Was a nice 6 hour trip back without hardly any traffic.
    Everything was ok at property 1, except the little old lady down the road had been worried about me. I mowed her lawn today and am loading up more supplies into the van. I am going to catch up on current events and return to the 2nd property until this blows over or the mutant zombie bikers come for me.
    I had everything I needed except for the luxuries. My batteries in my radio died and my phone was close. I am taking my solar and battery on the return trip, plus my favorite chair. Having a good place to relax is high on my list.
    I am going to go get this dome ferro cemented and buried.
    Good luck to everyone, is this the crash, if so I wish you all well. Demented Guy

  8. Reading DG is scary, not because of what he's doing. But because that is the level it may take to survive into 2022/2023. I will not make it, I'm good with that knowledge. I lived through the glory days of the empire. It's been a long strange trip, to quote my favorite hippie. I've made more money than most, spent more than most, raised 4 level headed productive kids, loved 2 women( not at the same time). I can't complain. Wife number 2 celebrated 60 today. At 16 she was told she would not live to see 30. We are happy. Let the world go to hell, it's all good.

  9. Well, here in Modern Mayberry, you could buy almost anything, except for TP, beef, and eggs. Everything else was in stock.

    Remember: 30% to 40% of food was being bought at Sonic, Red Lobster or some restaurant. Ma wasn't home cooking, the fam was getting a batch of Chick-fil-a on the way home. Now that everyone is home, Chick-fil-a still had chickens and buns, but Wal-Mart isn't used to 95% of calories here, it's used to 60%. Food's still there, it's just stuck in Sysco, who delivers a lot to McDonalds.

    It'd soon expect Sysco to be in Cosco. When? I don't know. (that rhymes)

    I'll get back to you with the nitrogen info if I can find it. Will keep you posted.

    1. You might be off a smidge, as McDonald's alone accounts for 15% of all food eaten daily. Or, it did anyway, 5-10 years ago. I'd say the initial figure is closer to 50%. Subtract all sit down places, take a bit away from the walk-in's at fast food no longer eating there, a bit from pure ass broke folks learning to cook. Wally et al go from 50% to 60% or 65%. A third increase. Your basic contention is correct, but I think groceries see a 30% increase, not necessarily 50%, not at first ( it will increase as more chains fail from lack of volume ). If my figures are correct ( and I am going off a several year old article based on years old figures ), that should mean there is LESS pressure right now on switching over to who sells the food. If they don't pull that out of their ass then I fear weather related mass shortages from last year, getting worse this year as global ag supplies don't reach us. I really hope I'm wrong
