September 19th Bunker Index - The Beasts Are Upon Us

Well, my camping trip was fruitful. I had a great time catching up with some old friends. I learned quite a bit about some of the newer camping equipment out there. My friend has a camper that is equipped as well as my own house and kitchen. For not an enormous amount of money, you CAN enjoy time in the wilderness without it being considered "roughing it". This has a high degree of relevance as I continue my off-grid plan.

This is shaping up to be a pretty big week. All sorts of mayhem is boiling up on the horizon, from the sundering of the European Union to biblical prophecy being unveiled before our eyes. Are you ready? Got rice and beans? Ammo? Got Christ? That's all you need.

What is expected of us in these dark days to come? Why nothing more than has always been asked of us. God doesn't demand rivers of oil, thousands of lambs, or any other epic deeds or mountains of wealth from His people. What He asks is simply explained in Micah 6:8 -

Mic 6:8  He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

 1. Obama is set to unveil his new deficit reduction plan of $1.5 trillion in new tax revenue. Yep. The American people are going to be hit with $1.5 trillion in new taxes soon via expiring some tax cuts, increases elsewhere, and reductions in eligibilities for tax credits. The gloves have come off now. Get used to chopping cotton on Uncle Obama's plantation. And if you think it's just going to hit the rich then remember: the globalists compare YOU to a third-worlder living in a hut and think YOU'RE the rich one.

2. The frightening new $450 billion jobs bill is going to be slightly delayed between Obama's proposal of it and its arrival in congress. It seems the Obamas want to take another vacation. I think if we added up how much it would cost to keep the Obama family fed, clothed, and on a permanent holiday and compared it to how much Obama spends when he's "working" then we would probably all agree to just pay to keep them on vacation for the remainder of the time. Maybe they can take Congress with them.

3. A man and his teenage daughter are in critical condition in California after their attempts to tap into local electrical lines to steal power service. This will probably become more common as prices rise and the economy falls. I highly recommend figuring out an alternative means of power production.

4. Biker gangs of the apocalypse? Is it Mad Max time already? Apparently large gangs of bikers have taken over the highways around St Louis and forced other traffic off the road. So far they have been seen blocking traffic and intimidating other travelers with shows of force. No comment from authorities.

5. According to the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, if it were a white president then blacks would already be marching on the White House due to rising unemployment and other problems among black Americans. But of course he had to get in the obligatory "the Tea Party is rascist" commentary in the interview.

6. Greece is poised to go kaput sometime this week. Watch this one closely. It's all over the news but I don't fully understand what's happening. InvalidID of HomesteadyingToday fame has been covering it fairly clearly due to his knowledge of the financial markets. Maybe we can get some info from him.

7. A California couple in a small town has been fined $300 for holding small bible studies in their home and face additional $500 fines for each additional bible study they host. All because they don't have a "conditional use" permit which is expensive and often difficult to get. How long before the rest of the nation follows suit? It's hard to laugh at the California "flakes and nuts" anymore now that they've spread their agenda across the heartland and into even rural councils.

8. And tomorrow ... the BIG vote on Palestinian statehood. --- Zec 14:2  For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

So much going on this week and next.. I just want to make it to October 1st.

People are getting increasingly desperate out there.

I don't know how much longer the Black Caucaus can continue to spew that rhetoric without a backlash. I hope it's not too far off.

As for the ST. Louis Bike incident.. I think it may pertain to the festival described here:

Seems they need better guidleines for thier rides.

2. Part of the jobs bill is "paid for" by money saved on debt payments due to our artificially low interest rates. It seems to me that this is a total sleight of hand since interest rates are bound to go up as the fed continues to pump more money and the economy becomes increasingly worse. Also, China has been quietly unloading US Treasury bonds and investing in tangible goods. (Not sure if you mentioned this already.) Rates will have to go up to entice more buyers.

6. Almost every article has pegged the vote for the 20th, this one says the 23rd.

Great post Ernie! A lot to watch out for. I think I'm about as ready to meet my maker as I can be.
