Ann Barnhardt’s Prepping Seminar In Eight Parts

Barnhardt did an economics seminar in Colorado. She had it videotaped and has presented it in eight 20-minute videos here. I watched parts of it. There is a lot of information and a lot of her opinions. I found it to be a learning experience. I intend to watch the rest.

She has prepared a workbook to go with it. It’s available free in .pdf format here. It’s 22 pages long. The title of the seminar is ‘The Economy is Going to Implode…And You Deserve to Understand Why‘.

Each video is prefaced with a list of the topics she will be covering in it. There are a lot of them. The one I found most interesting was video number five. The topics are:

Wealth Transfer: European Context
Wealth Transfer: U.S. Context
The Bribing Set-up of the Underclass by the Regime in Preparation for Mass Slaughter
Secession Dynamics
Credit Default Swaps

The explantions of European wealth transfer helped me understand the dynamics over there. When she tries to tie it to the United States, though, her arguments are weaker. The section on secession dynamics is interesting. She compares the Balkanization of Europe to her expectation that many American states will try to secede from the union. Her instincts were good about this. At last count I have heard there are petitions to secede from twenty states. Maybe more now.

If you have twenty minutes please take a look. I’d like opinions. I think she’s correct about some things but may be too far out on others. It’s scary.

    I think I’ve been pretty clear where I stand on the current status of global economics – what our government plans to do to defend it’s stranglehold on authority, and  the specter of global war on the horizon.

    I agree with her assertions about the coming collapse. I only watched the above video, so I can’t speak to the others – but she has good points. We’ve done nothing to repair the damage of 2008. We’ve only enabled our banks to borrow more money, at lower interest rates, and further leverage their assets. What has it gotten us? Exactly what the founders of the private central bank wanted. They are inflating asset prices to maintain the appearance of order, but the system is irretrievably broken. Our political class is in bed with the corporate class, who are all subject to the whims and fancies of the banking class.

    We have a never-ending turn style of lobbyists and ‘leaders’ who write laws to favor their industry and go back to the companies they created favor for. We have a political class who lacks the backbone needed to make NECESSARY changes and a populace who refuse to see the truth.

    In short, we are fucked. She’s right about the mathematical inevitability of the situation. You can’t blow unicorn dust on the world’s economy and expect it to violate the ironclad laws of nature.

    There WERE two options:

    1) the slow, controlled, & painful unwinding of our debt


    2) the uncontrolled, painful, chaos of collapse

    #2 absolutely will.

    The only questions remaining are “When?”, “What triggers it?”, and “How will the people respond? ”

    Any future spending cuts will be the equivalent of a dog pissing on a bush, 4 blocks away, while your house burns to the ground.

    Yep. Barnhardt is a strange one; kind of a present-day Joan of Arc. I guess she was weird, too but she’s remembered as a hero.

    I used to follow her rants fairly closely. I got a kick out of her bookmarking passages in the Koran with strips of bacon so she would know where the passage was she wanted to burn.

    Now she’s talking some serious sh*t. She spent her whole life in the commodities business so she has a perspective that I don’t have.

    You and she are right. No one is doing anything to slow the decline. Thus it will be quick and brutal. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near any city when it comes.

    I watched them all, fucking scared the shit outta me and I dont have any money and little in the way of assets, she sure makes it make sense in language even I (uneducated hillbilly) can understand

    I am seriously considering liquidating all my current assets even though with few exceptions and returning to wild wonderful WV to go galt till I die, at least i’d be close to family
