their rectums yet as to their Super Bowl fantasy. Well, REALITY is about
ready to kick them in the ass like they have never been kicked before,
and for many, will never be kicked again.
- The scope as to the gutting out, sell-out, and vicious
TREASON by the political and religious elements (note it is plural) of
the United States has been the greatest in all of modern history. Don't
let your eyes deceive you as to what you are going to read.

magic wand and save the day. It is time to suck it up and face the music
of forthcoming violence and suffering like never seen before in the United
States and throughout the world.

scoffed at, thrown in prison, had my home destroyed, and looked upon as
an outcast of this Nation. The same Nation I went to war for during Vietnam.

- Subject: Baltic Dry Index
- (Shipping situation that effects all of us)
- Follow-up letter on BDI Video
- An Email Received On the Baltic Dry Index Video:
- I've been discussing the Baltic Dry Index (BDI) with
everyone I can for months now. I started following it in June of 2008.
It's not a traded index so no one profits from the index itself, which
makes it virtually manipulation proof. It is what it is and that doesn't
bode well for any of us.
- OK, we have 26 shipping routes around the world that
the BDI looks at. Shipping stocks are slaves to the BDI. Capesize Ships
(over 100,000 tons) make up only 10% of the World Fleet but move 62% of
Dry Bulk Traffic (at a given time Australia has 35/40, China 20, Brazil
40-50, S. Africa 1-7). Panamax Ships (60,000-80,000 tons) make up 19% of
the world fleet and move 20% of the Dry Bulk Traffic (at a given time Australia
has 40-60, China 20-35, Brazil 3-12, S Africa 0-1). There is a third and
fourth ship size but they are quite small and they aren't moving either.
- If we can use the Baltic Dry Index (BDI) as a guide for
the next 12 months of product delivery and food availability in the stores
we shop in then the BDI says shelves will be virtually empty of almost
every product we use each and every day.
- If the BDI is wrong it will be an historic first. The
BDI is used by bankers, financial experts, brokers, traders and everyone
in high-end finance to assess the global financial condition and the availability
of products worldwide.
- The BDI has dropped 94% in a short few weeks which means
raw materials, grains, ores, steel, iron, cement and all imported products
for food manufacturing and product manufacturing even though we actually
do very little of that here in the US. We do make bread and other products
that require grains, like cereals. We import clothing, gasoline, various
fuels and, well, just about everything these days and the BDI says global
shipping has shut down. NOTHING is moving. Because this spells disaster
for a country that produces little and imports everything I have been intently
blogging about the subject and asking people to view a short video I have
posted (8 minutes) on:
- The Baltic Dry Index (BDI) is an indicator of how much
product is actually out for delivery throughout the world. It cannot be
cheated or manipulated because it deals with actual products that are either
actively being shipped, or are on docks awaiting to be shipped as Freight
On Board (FOB). As the chart below proves, back in June, 2008 the BDI
stood at a reasonably healthy 11,600. As of today, the BDI has plummeted
to 791. That's about a 94% drop in goods actually being shipped worldwide.
- This portends unprecedented disaster around the world,
especially as it relates to food. Products are simply not being shipped.
They aren't being shipped because there aren't any orders for them.
This will translate into massive, unprecedented unemployment worldwide
and, as things get worse, massive food shortages.
- I have urgently asked each of you to stock up on dry
foods like 50 lb bags of rice, 50 lb bags of oatmeal, beans, powdered milk,
canned foods, canned vegetables and such to assure your family will
- have enough to eat when the world economy totally collapses.
Many of you laughed me off as some sort of kook for making those suggestions,
with some of you going so far as to call me "chicken little, the sky
is falling." Well, it appears I'm having the last laugh.
- I correctly forecast the economic meltdown which took
place in September. For over a year prior to that meltdown, I warned it
was coming and, in March of 2008, I actually pinpointed the month the meltdown
would take place, warning you it would happen in September. It did.
Now I am once again warning you about food shortages because the facts
are irrefutable. The BDI proves that goods are not being shipped.
- There has been a 94% reduction in shipped goods since
June of this year and it is only going to get worse. If you do not have
food stored up for your family, you will starve to death. If you do not
own guns and ammunition, any food you DO have will be stolen by roving
bands of savages who are trying not to starve to death.
- The social breakdown that is coming is unparalleled in
modern history. We are going to suffer on an order of magnitude greater
than folks suffered during the Great Depression. Please, I urge you, prepare.
There are only a few precious months left before it all goes to hell.
So, as I said, I have been e-mailing everyone I can think of and here's
a very interesting email I received back from a friend tonight. He's a
senior level electrical engineer for a large engineering and construction
firm in Denver and designs and builds large power plants for a living.
- Quite the contrary, I'm well acquainted with the Baltic
Dry Index. My brother is a mid-to high-level executive with a logistics/cargo
firm. His company (as well as all other shipping companies) have seen huge
dives in the amount of business they do. The main point that many people
do not understand is that without trade between states and nations no one
- It's always tempting to say "screw the third world
countries and screw the Chinese with all the crap they send over here!
Let's shut our borders down and not import anything!" But the reality
is that no country that practices such Draconian protectionist policies
ever lasts very long. So with that, it is of huge concern to you, me,
and everyone else "in the know" when the BDI drops so drastically!
The whole world is truly tied at the hip, as the saying goes!
- Brother, I'm on board with you 100%! I sincerely appreciate
you taking the time to send me the link (which I will watch by this weekend).
You hit the nail on the head in that 98% of the people in this country
have not one clue what the BDI is, what it indicates; nothing!
- The truly sad thing, to me at least, is that the masses
of "useful idiots" (as Lenin called them) have no clue what is
going on around them, yet they so eagerly and boisterously vote! I'm afraid
that this country is going to have to go through a considerable amount
of pain before the uneducated, ignorant (and I won't say stupid because
they simply have not been taught) masses "get it".
- I am a senior level electrical engineer for a large engineering
and construction firm in Denver. I design and build large power plants
for a living. Without giving the whole story of my career, believe me
when I say that in the next few years this country will see rolling blackouts
(and that's not taking into account another terrorist attack on our country!).
If the people in this country knew what I know first-hand about our power
grid and the condition of our (very old!) power plants in this country,
they would probably crap themselves in fear!
- The only surprise to me is that the blackouts didn't
happen this past summer, but that was due to 2008 being a cooler year than
expected. The bottom line is, our power grid (and for that matter, much
of the infrastructure in this country) is tapped out and actually older
than its expected life. And yet, our wonderful federal government, elected
by us "useful idiots", continues to spend, spend, spend like
drunken sailors. Why? Well, because that's what we've "always"
done! It sickens me!
- Take a look at www.chrismartenson.com
- This fellow has his head screwed on straight!
- Take it from me, I build power plants for a living.
But I still have a basement full of not just guns, ammo, and food, but
of fuel! White gas, propane bottle's, even sterno & alcohol type cans.
Do yourself a favor if you haven't already, STOCK UP on a fuel supply,
at least so that you can cook and have some modest heat if you don't have
a fireplace! Consider what you have and ask yourself if you have enough
to get you through a month, 2 months? Three? God Bless Sam's Club for
carrying Coleman fuel and propane and such...
- I'll share more of my knowledge (limited though it is)
with you later on.
- Peace be with you brother. Hope for the best but prepare
for the worst!
- Believe or don't, the choice is yours but at the very
least I suggest you start doing the research on this subject or you may
be starving in a few short months.
