Since World War II the United States has been the “engine” of the world. It ruled in manufacturing. Ruled in Quality of Life. Ruled as the economic powerhouse. Almost every statistic put the United States either at the top or very near the top.
That started to change in the 1970’s as the US basically could not win its war in Vietnam and bargained its way out in 1975. The US was cowered into submission by the OPEC oil embargo that almost brought the economy to its knees. Manufacturing began to leave the US for cheaper labor in Mexico, China and the far east.
So here we are in the third decade since the millennium, and the US is weakened, sapped of its manufacturing base and floating in worthless money. Its national debt has grown to over $30 trillion. Its once proud people dumbed down and dependent on its national government for handouts and favors.
More recently, and continuing even as of this writing, the US dollar is losing its dominance in world trade. More and more nations once favorable to the United States are turning from the dollar to the yuan, China’s currency and leaving the dollar. This means that the US Treasury is having a very hard time funding its spending spree with debt. No one is buying our debt instruments except for the Federal Reserve (a group of private bankers and NOT part of the American government). Yet the US government continues to spend its way into oblivion. Remember, at the end of the day all of this is costing YOU – through increasing taxes, through increased prices at all levels, and through eroding of your freedoms.
Now the enemies and adversaries of the United States are preparing to knock the US off its pedestal and to assert their power. This is not the first time this has happened in history. Spain was knocked off by England. England was knocked off by the United States. Now China is preparing to knock the US off. And there is very little you and I can do about this, except to prepare for it.
And it will happen very quickly.
I could get into a litany of reasons, starting with the US falling out of God’s protection. But all this would do is alienate those of you who do not feel this way. So rather than doing that, I am asking for you to carefully examine the times we live in and understand what is going on around you. we need to be united on this and educated.
We live in a different world now. You need to prepare for it. It will be brutal.
I know it’s been awhile since I posted anything here on the blog. Northstar has been very busy helping its clients prepare for a near certain difficult time ahead.
So, whats changed?
My original comment on $19 trillion in national debt. It’s now $21 trillion and climbing.
Our enemies have intensified their belligerence against us. Russia has introduce a whole new platform of weapon systems designed to render a ballistic missile defense system worthless and overwhelm it. China has introduced new fighter aircraft, are training to take back Taiwan by force, have moved to solidify the dominance of the Communist Party in China, and have developed hyper sonic missiles that can overwhelm our naval fleets, deliver nuclear weapons that cannot be intercepted, and is preparing to enslave its entire population with the Orwellian “social credit” system.
Our southern border is under attack by thousands of Central Americans attempting to break through the border en mass.
I could go on and just depress you, but I won’t. What I will do is encourage to to start your plans today. Just start. Don’t be caught off guard. A world of hurt is coming.
I’m putting this out in advance of tomorrow’s election. I have already voted and hope you have, too. I hope my candidate wins and I’m sure your want yours to win as well.
But I am not going to go into politics or candidates. What I am going to say is this:
It does not matter who wins. Regardless of the winner, what they will have to deal with is:
$19 trillion in government debt. It will drag the economy down.
The “open border” concept will destroy the fabric of the country.
The attack on the values that makes our society strong.
The dependency policies of the nanny state.
The trend towards bigger government.
The US growing weaker financially, militarily and culturally.
Being surrounded on all sides by enemies who seek to overpower and defeat the US in any way possible.
It does not matter who the individual is who has the title of President, Senator, Representative or whatever after tomorrow. There are movers and shakers who function behind the scenes that direct the policies of government and they are not up for election. Commonly referred to as the “Deep State”, they will still be there.
So don’t expect things to get better. Expect them to get worse. But there is light at the end of this tunnel. And we are here to help.
Northstar will help you navigate the turbulent times ahead. We will provide you with solutions for greater self reliance in a changing world.
You will be the ones who lead us into a brighter future. For you. For your family. For our nation. The journey begins.
This blog is being written about issues, concerns and general ramblings involving the Lone Star State. Some will be serious and others will be light-hearted. The thoughts are my own. Some you will agree with. Others you won’t.
I hope you will come back here weekly to read of my musings on issues of the day, ideas, suggestions and other topics of interest to Texans and those who may want to become Texans. Enjoy!
