While the city urges people to restrict water usage, many living in poor areas already have limited access to water, and the day that the city runs out of water, ominously known as \”Day Zero,\” moves ever closer for the nearly 4 million residents.

—Earlier this year, the South African city of Cape Town was told that it would make history by April 16. On that date, dubbed Day Zero, it was expected to become the world’s first major city to run out of water because of an extended drought. More than 1 million households would face extreme rationing or no water at all as reservoirs went dry.
But then something happened. The date was pushed back to June 4. And this week, Day Zero was set for July 9. Continue reading →
BERLIN (Own report) – The Federal Academy for Security Policy (BAKS) is calling for a propaganda campaign to strengthen the German population’s resilience to attacks in their country by enemy combatants. In collaboration with “media partners” and “civil society,” an “understanding” must be achieved that “firmness against crisis” by each citizen towards “terrorist attacks” forms an “integral part” of society’s overall resilience,” explains the government’s military policy think tank. BAKS explicitly refers to the “White Paper on Security Policy and Future of the Bundeswehr,” presented by the German Defense Ministry in 2016, which is also pleading “to improve the ability of both state and society to withstand and adapt” to all kinds of attacks, necessitating a “whole-of-government approach to security.” The state-owned Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft had launched urban projects along the same lines, already years ago, in which “each individual citizen” is considered “part of a comprehensive concept of resilience to multiple security risks.”

Caracas: In the darkness the warehouse looks like any other, a metal-roofed hangar next to a clattering overpass, with homeless people sleeping nearby in the shadows.
But inside, workers quietly unload black plastic crates filled with merchandise so valuable that mobs have looted delivery vehicles, shot up the windshields of trucks and hurled a rock into one driver’s eye. Soldiers and police milling around the loading depots give this neighbourhood the feel of a military garrison.
“It’s just cheese,” said Juan Urrea, a 29-year-old driver, as workers unloaded thousands of pounds of white Venezuelan queso from his delivery truck. “I’ve never seen anything like this before.” Continue reading →
If internationalists were to get their way fully with the world and future historians write their analysis from a globalist perspective of the defunct American nation, they will probably say simply that our collapse was brought about by our own incompetence – that we were our own worst enemy. Yes, they would treat America as a cliché. They will of course leave out the destructive influences and engineered disasters of elitists, that would just complicate the narrative.
My hope is that we do not prove these future historians correct, and that they won’t have an opportunity to exist. My work has always been designed to help ensure that resistance thrives, but also that it is pursued in the most intelligent manner possible. Continue reading →
America is already at the point of no return. It has passed the demoralization stage and nearing the end of the destabilization phase. The next two stages to come are crisis and normalization. After the engineered crisis is quelled with the pre-planned remedy, the permanent takeover is complete and returned to normalization by the fifth column captors. America is already at the boiling point and only the hand of God himself can keep the nation from going into crisis. The protective hand of God also requires repentance from the nation, something that doesn’t seem very likely. Only one catalyst is needed to bring the nation from boiling point to overflow and scarring.

In a 1985 interview, former Soviet KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov described the techniques of ideological subversion (short video below and full text), that were used to undermine American values, traditions and institutions to the extent that the people will be unable or unwilling to resist takeover by the totalitarian ideology of communism; methods adopted and now being employed against the United States by the supporters of radical Islam.

History repeats because human nature never differs. I have warned that Albert Einstein was correct that you can NEVER solve a problem with the same line of thing that created the crisis. We will see that absolutely NEVER has anyone in power EVER conceded that they have been the cause of a crisis – it is always someone else. They are the people who in school didn’t do an assignment and blamed the dog for eating it.
French President Francois Hollande has called for the 19 countries using the euro need to now move rapidly to complete a full socialistic state for Europe with a budget and parliament to relieve the individual governments of their failed socialistic agendas. If anything will cause the collapse of the Euro – this will be it. Hollande argues that the Greek crisis illustrates the problem and of course it was never their failed dreams, it was the lack of a federalized Europe where people have no vote whatsoever in any Troika member.
Chinese civilian shipbuilders have to ensure that their vessels can be used by the PLAN during times of ‘crisis’.
As my colleague Shannon Tiezzi reported a while back, the Chinese government has approved a plan to ensure that civilian vessels can support military operations of China’s maritime forces in the event of a crisis.
While the recruitment of civilian maritime assets for military purposes is not unusual (e.g., the Queen Elizabeth 2 transported the main British land fighting force to the Falkland Islands during the 1982 Falklands War), the recent announcement is nevertheless a sign of the growing aspirations of Chinese naval planners in developing naval expeditionary warfare capabilities.
The European Commission (EC) will insist that a proposed system of relocating undocumented immigrants be mandatory for all EU member countries, EC spokeswoman for Migration Natasha Bertaud said Monday.
BRUSSELS (Sputnik) – In late May, the EC proposed to relocate some 40,000 asylum seekers from third world countries, who are currently residing in Italy and Greece, to other EU member states as part of its agenda to manage the crisis of undocumented immigration. Continue reading →

France and Germany, which had brokered the Minsk accord last week, were yesterday trying to hold together the increasingly fragile ceasefire in Ukraine amid reports that fighting was spreading once again. Kremlin-backed separatists and Cossack fighters triumphantly paraded through the shattered town of Debaltseve, a strategic point they had captured in the past 48 hours. Continue reading →
Many today ridicule prior generations’ concern over Communist infiltration. But current trends are bringing that concern back into focus.
Imagine the United States allying with Russia. If you were alive when Nazi Germany was rampaging across Europe during World War ii, you didn’t have to imagine it. You saw it: The world’s greatest capitalist nation forged a “strange alliance” with the world’s greatest Communist state, the Soviet Union.
When this happened, a peculiar phenomenon surged across America: a wave of popular emotional fervor for the Soviets.
Influential men and media fawned over Joseph Stalin. President Franklin Roosevelt released Communist Party-U.S.A. leader Earl Browder from prison to promote “national unity” between American Communists and the general public.
Yet even during this trying and confusing time, one strong voice cried out a warning against not only the imminent fascist threat from Germany, but the less-understood Communist threat from the Soviet Union. Continue reading →
The next crisis will be the currency pegs against the dollar. Here we have pegs from Hong Kong to the Middle East. We will have the same problem for as the dollar is driven higher, thanks to the implosion in the Euroland, these nations will import DEFLATION from a rising dollar. This will break their backs and force pegs to collapse around the world. Keep in mind that this will unfold probably after 2015.75 and help to spiral the world economy into the worst depression in centuries. Start preparing for a rainy day. Continue reading →
This is exactly what was mentioned was going happen when it was said the West was shooting itself in the foot to punish Russia. The neo-Soviets are laughing themselves to the bank because they know they will endure longer as they are more shielded from the repercussions. Their turning to China and Turkey as new customers are evidence enough.
