A Time Of Wars And Rumors Of Wars, Famines, Pestilences And Major Natural Disasters

On some level, most people can feel what is coming.  That is why sales of emergency food are at record levels, shows about survival are among the most popular on television, and Mark Zuckerberg is building a “self-sustaining doomsday bunker” in Hawaii.  Millions of us realize that we are on the brink of an extremely chaotic chapter in human history.  Of course the past several years have already been pretty wild, but I believe that the years immediately in front of us will take things to an entirely new level.

A few years ago, “World War III” wasn’t even on the horizon, but now conflicts are erupting all over the planet and the mainstream media is using apocalyptic language to describe what we are facing.

For example, the following comes from an article posted on Yahoo News entitled “As war creeps closer to Armageddon, the end of days doesn’t seem so far away”…

From Megiddo’s hilltop, there is a great view of the West Bank, no more than two miles away.

To the north, the rockets of Hezbollah – in total about 160,000 of them – are pointed in this direction while in the south, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) are fighting raging gun battles with Hamas in a war that’s almost four months long.

Israel is on edge. Standing in Megiddo, right in the middle of the country and now home to a vast archaeological site, there is a sense of foreboding that pervades the region.

To see an article on Yahoo News using the word “Armageddon” really got my attention.

When Israel moves into southern Lebanon to push Hezbollah north of the Litani River, things will get really crazy in the Middle East.

And it is being reported that IDF units in the north have been engaging in “rigorous training” in preparation for the approaching confrontation…

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) engaged in rigorous training in the northern reserve paratrooper brigade to boost readiness along the northern border.

The exercises, part of ongoing efforts to enhance operational preparedness, involved the Northern Parachute Brigade (226), a crucial unit within the ‘Hempetz’ (146) formation.

Soldiers faced challenging winter conditions, including rain and fog, as they practiced tactics for in densely populated areas. The training covered various units, from smaller squads to larger battalion teams, integrating different forces like tanks, infantry, engineering, and artillery.

On the other side of the globe, the Chinese have stepped up their “campaign of intimidation” against Taiwan…

The People’s Republic has increased its campaign of intimidation in the weeks after this month’s presidential elections, which saw the election of pro-US Lai Ching-te.

Beijing has sent spy balloons into Taiwanese airspace almost daily both before and right after the vote in a move geopolitical analysts suggest is an attempt to weaken calls for the island’s independence.

War is going to cause so much death and destruction over the next few years.

And it will make our rapidly growing global food crisis even worse.

According to the UN, we are now facing a “perfect storm” which has created “a hunger crisis of unprecedented proportions”…

Conflict, economic shocks, climate change and soaring prices for food and fertilizer are all combining in a perfect storm to create a hunger crisis of unprecedented proportions. Right now, in some of the hungriest places around the world, there just isn’t enough food to feed the population.

Most Americans don’t realize this, but we are in the midst of the worst global food crisis in modern history right now.

And according to the EU, the number of people around the world dealing with acute food insecurity in 2023 jumped 10 percent higher than 2022’s record level…

The global food crisis is affecting millions of people around the world.

In 2023, record levels of acute food insecurity persist due to protracted food crises and new shocks. In 48 countries, 238 million people are facing high levels of acute food insecurity – 10% more than in 2022.

Of course this is just the beginning.

As global food supplies get even tighter, we will eventually see severe famines all over the planet.

During the past few years, the pestilences that have spread like wildfire around the world have also been a major theme.

A few days ago, I wrote about the crazy explosion of measles cases that we are seeing in Europe and elsewhere.

In this article, I wanted to mention the rapid spread of the bird flu in the state of California.

In just the past two months, bird flu outbreaks have resulted in the destruction of more than 1 million chickens and turkeys in that state alone…

A year after the bird flu led to record egg prices and widespread shortages, the disease known as highly pathogenic avian influenza is wreaking havoc in California, which escaped the earlier wave of outbreaks that devastated poultry farms in the Midwest.

The highly contagious virus has ravaged Sonoma County, where officials have declared a state of emergency. During the past two months, nearly a dozen commercial farms have had to destroy more than 1 million birds to control the outbreak, dealing an economic blow to farmers, workers and their customers.

Overall, more than 82 million chickens and turkeys have been wiped out in the United States since the beginning of the bird flu pandemic.

So if you have been wondering why poultry costs a lot more than it once did, now you know.

The past few years have also been a time of great natural disasters.

In fact, it is being reported that the number of billion dollar natural disasters in 2023 was the highest ever recorded

Environmental catastrophes and natural disasters should be a concern for workers, especially after these incidents cost the global economy US$380 billion in 2023, according to a report from Aon.

That figure is 22% above the 21st century average.

Overall, there were 398 notable disaster events in 2023. And the 66-billion-dollar economic loss events last year is the highest on record, surpassing the annual average of 42.

Needless to say, what we have experienced so far is just a preview of coming attractions.

Much bigger and much more destructive natural disasters are on the way.

If you live on the west coast, the east coast, or in the New Madrid fault zone, you will want to be on high alert for any unusual shaking from this point forward.

We are about to enter one of the most pivotal times in all of human history.

And so many of us can feel that disaster is almost upon us.

I would encourage you to get prepared while you still can, because this is not a game.
