UPDATE on Downed Plane Over Ukraine

It is important to keep an open mind in all issues.  Take in information and then with that collected information make the best decisions from all evidence pro vs. con.  This interview is quite interesting.  It’s pushing for the point that who gains from that jet coming down and blaming Russia. How was that plane sent over the area.  This happened the day after Russia came out joining Brics.


Now, my question is what do we expect to come of this?  Does Russia increase her press or lay back.  Does America do something forcing Russia’s hand?  Where is China in all of this?  I see China and Russia together in this fight against American dominance.  I have to agree with Levin that this downed Jet reminded me of the Lusitania sinking that took America into WWI.

Obama Calls For Collectivized New World Order

The constant drumming of propaganda to bring about the change from the present system of control to a new system of control will increase in it’s tempo.  We will see more messages such as this one from the President:

From Infowars

During a fundraiser in Seattle this week, President Barack Obama called for a “new order” based around a collectivized system in order to quell people’s concerns about geopolitical strife and the economy.

“People are anxious. Now, some of that has to do with some big challenges overseas,” said Obama, adding, “But whether people see what’s happening in Ukraine, and Russia’s aggression towards its neighbors in the manner in which it’s financing and arming separatists; to what’s happened in Syria … to the failure in Iraq for Sunni and Shia and Kurd to compromise … to what’s happening in Israel and Gaza….”

“Part of people’s concern is just the sense that around the world the old order isn’t holding and we’re not quite yet to where we need to be in terms of a new order that’s based on a different set of principles, that’s based on a sense of common humanity, that’s based on economies that work for all people. … But here in the United States, what people are also concerned about is the fact that although the economy has done well in the aggregate, for the average person it feels as if incomes, wages just haven’t gone up; that people, no matter how hard they work, they feel stuck.”

This is by no means the first time that Obama has called for a new world order.

During a 2010 West Point speech, the President encouraged the development of a new “international order” to help secure America’s interests.

Obama also urged Europeans and Americans to embrace the idea of “global citizenship” during a 2012 Berlin speech.

Vice-President Joe Biden has also repeatedly called for a “new world order.”

So, while the world economy collapses, disasters spike, and wars in the Middle East and Russia / Ukraine we shall hear more and more of this “New world order” line.  We will get to a point we are just so tired of the game.  Some will be desperate enough to do anything to save their families even if it means complete slavery.  This is the time to snap out of this malaise.  To take a very deep breath like that on a cold winter morning and get your bearings.   You need to see what is coming.  You need to be centered in perfect peace and wisdom.  This above all is a war for you, your children’s and friend’s souls.  This is not merely political games being played.  This is about what will be upon the world very soon, and it is called “The hour of temptation” for a reason.  Will you sell your birthright as Esau did for a bowl of stew? Will you just go to sleep because you are so weary?

Yeshua warned us to not fall asleep but to remain awake and NOT LET THE THIEF BREAK IN!  Who is the thief?  Who is the one seeking control?  Father above, I pray for all who read my words that they know you, your love, and gift to us in Yeshua.  May we be of some use even in our own limited ways in this hour.  Never turn to fear for that will make you do terrible things my friends.  Never think you are alone because you have help you do not see.   Remember Elisha’s prayer and know it is a foreshadow for the final battles

2Kings 6

16So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” And the LORD opened the servant’s eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 18When they came down to him, Elisha prayed to the LORD and said, “Strike this people with blindness, I pray.” So He struck them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.…

This video is one I did a while back that will help any who are confused as to what is happening in our world now, and the trap laid for all.

Report: Ukrainian Fighter Jets Hid Behind Passenger Plane as Cover for Dropping Bombs!

Well, I’ve been holding off on doing a post on the downed Jet over the Ukraine.  Lots of people have speculated on it being the missing Malaysian jet they never found and suddenly used in a false flag to frame Russia.  I have no proof of anything, but this tidbit of information seems the most likely explanation.  I can see the Ukrainians hiding behind a civilian jet as Hamas hides behind women and children as they fire off rockets at Israel daring them to hit back.  Well, maybe Russia is not one to be toyed with, and has no problem firing back.  I am sure they did not want to shoot down a passenger airline.  For all I know it is that missing Malaysian jet and some Ukrainian / CIA pilot was flying it  and snuck off all James Bond style after it was hit.


We won’t know the truth in this matter, but my gut tells me the Ukrainians were using it as cover.

What is Powdered Alcohol?




This is a new product invented by an American who wanted to be able to enjoy alcohol after long hikes without carrying a lot of heavy bottles.  He applied for FDA approval and was shocked in April when his product was approved.  Below is a video he has done to set the record straight on just what Palcohol is and how it can be used.  Let me say now that “No, you cannot snort it for a fast drunk”!



Northern Border Agent Holds Gun to Scouts Head

The stupid government agents with badges and guns throwing their weight around AGAIN!  This time, they held a gun to the head of a boyscout troop member at the Northern border because one of the scouts took his picture!  You won’t believe this crap:

A U.S. border agent aimed his gun at a boy scout’s head after another scout took a photo of a government official near the Alaska/Canada border.

Grimes, Iowa, Boy Scout Troop 111 was driving into Alaska recently when one of the scouts took a picture of the official, which provoked border agents into detaining and searching the scouts at gunpoint for over four hours.

“The agent immediately confiscated his camera, informed him he would be arrested, fined possibly $10,000 and 10 years in prison,” Troop 111 leader Jim Fox told KCCI, adding that the agent claimed it was illegal to take photos of officials.

When another scout began removing luggage from the top of their van to be searched, one of the agents drew his gun on him.

“He hears a snap of a holster, turns around, and here’s this agent, both hands on a loaded pistol, pointing at the young man’s head,” Fox said.

The troop was later released with no injuries.

Although Fox was outraged over the incident, Charles Vonderheid with the Mid-Iowa Council Boy Scouts of America told KCCI that they want to make sure the scouts “follow the rules.”

“A Scout is a good citizen,” he said. “It would be a great lesson in civics for that young man and that troop.”

But it is not illegal to take photos of government officials as long as it does not interfere with their official duties.

Simply put, these agents were using the color of law to detain children at gunpoint for perfectly legal behavior and considering how out-of-touch these agents were with reality, it is fortunate that none of these scouts were killed.  MORE

Naturally, I can’t show you the real pictures because the Gestapo, I mean, Border thugs took the evidence!  When will American’s say, “ENOUGH” and demand some justice!

Of course the pussification of America continues on the Southern Border where apparently the innocent children want to spread their love:

Yellowstone National Park Closes Popular Geysers, Attractions Due to Melting Road

The volcano has been increasing in action.  The ground has risen 10 FEET, and now the roads are melting and attractions are closed.   Are we about to see a major catastrophe?  I really am not sure.  This video spells it out pretty well:

Does China Plan To Establish “China Cities” And “Special Economic Zones” All Over America?



The most important change in America is taking away private gun ownership.  This war on the second amendment has been going on for decades.  We have had false flag after false flag of fake shootings or mind control sort of events where the victims are real such as Gabby Gifford to shock the American people into saying “ENOUGH!!! NO MORE GUNS!!!!”  The constant assault on our minds via state run media and the constant horror of the gun violence is akin to having five children who just nag nag nag nag nag until the parents just don’t keep the same standards they used to.  It’s like, “OKKKKKKKKK …. watch the damn TV and leave me the hell alone!”  Only in this case it’s, “OK, stop the killing and take our guns!” only to find out that there is a reason our police no longer look like officer Friday, but instead mirror Gestapo storm troopers who bashed in babies heads against walls.

The fact is that owning a gun was never about hunting. Our founding fathers lived under tyranny via the hands of King George.  Ever since America was founded there has been a plan to regain control of the peasants.  They have patiently waited and maneuvered us into a position of weakness economically.  They control our news and information to a great degree.  Where there used to be 240 independent newspapers, hundreds of independent radio stations, they are now all owned by about 4 mega global corporation!  This is why you will not get the truth about chemtrails, big pharma poisoning us, Monsanto poisoning us via GMO food, HAARP weather modification systems that control who gets rain.

If you have not investigated this information as I have since 1988, then you cannot begin to understand how deep this conspiracy of global control really goes.  America is being set up to fall, and they need our guns first.  America has the largest supply of fresh water in the world. America has some of the largest supplies of rare earth minerals in the world and we are forbidden to mine them because of EPA regulations and yet China can come in and do it!  America is going to be turned into slave labor.  These globalists love slave labor, and if you are one of the lucky American’s to still be in a comfortable job and want to believe this is all a lie, then you are part of the problem.  I am going to post a story below and link to a video I have already posted, but if you have not seen it, then you need to.  It is full of FACTS.  America will go into complete chaos by 2017 I believe, and you cannot stay ignorant anymore if you value your children and grand children’s chance to survive this.   Once California that supplies 25% to 50% of our food can no longer do so due to water shortage, where will you get your food?  Can you afford to buy food at 6 times the cost?  Imagine your grocery bill going up to $600.00 a week for a family of 4!  Get your Garden of Eden growing now.  If you don’t know what that is, it’s a way to garden with using wood chips as ground cover, mixing in minerals to enrich the soil, and thus not needing to WATER your garden.  You will have minimal pests, and huge harvests which you can help your neighbors with.  Get a chicken coop and rabbits!  The protein will be abundant and you will save your family!




Does China Plan To Establish “China Cities” And “Special Economic Zones” All Over America?


Does China Plan To Establish Chinese Cities And Special Economic Zones All Over America?


What in the world is China up to?  Over the past several years, the Chinese government and large Chinese corporations (which are often at least partially owned by the government) have been systematically buying up businesses, homes, farmland, real estate, infrastructure and natural resources all over America.  In some cases, China appears to be attempting to purchase entire communities in one fell swoop.  So why is this happening?  Is this some form of “economic colonization” that is taking place?  Some have speculated that China may be intending to establish “special economic zones” inside the United States modeled after the very successful Chinese city of Shenzhen.  Back in the 1970s, Shenzhen was just a very small fishing village, but now it is a sprawling metropolis of over 14 million people.  Initially, these “special economic zones” were only established within China, but now the Chinese government has been buying huge tracts of land in foreign countries such as Nigeria and establishing special economic zones in those nations.  So could such a thing actually happen in America?  Well, according to Dr. Jerome Corsi, a plan being pushed by the Chinese Central Bank would set up “development zones” in the United States that would allow China to “establish Chinese-owned businesses and bring in its citizens to the U.S. to work.”  Under the plan, some of the $1.17 trillion that the U.S. owes China would be converted from debt to “equity”.  As a result, “China would own U.S. businesses, U.S. infrastructure and U.S. high-value land, all with a U.S. government guarantee against loss.”  Does all of this sound far-fetched?  Well, it isn’t.  In fact, the economic colonization of America is already far more advanced than most Americans would dare to imagine.

So how in the world did we get to this point?  A few decades ago, the United States was the unchallenged economic powerhouse of the world and China was essentially a third world country.

So what happened?

Well, we entered into a whole bunch of extremely unfavorable “free trade” agreements, and countries such as China began to aggressively use “free trade” as an economic weapon against us.

Over the past decade, we have lost tens of thousands of businesses and millions of jobs to China.  When the final numbers for 2012 come out, our trade deficit with China for the year will be well over 300 billion dollars, and that will be the largest trade deficit that one country has had with another country in the history of the world.

Overall, the U.S. has run a trade deficit with China over the past decade that comes to more than 2.3 trillion dollars.  That 2.3 trillion dollars could have gone to U.S. businesses and U.S. workers, and in turn taxes would have been paid on all of that money.  But instead, all of that money went to China.

Rather than just sitting on all of that money, China has been lending much of it back to us – at interest.  We now owe China more than a trillion dollars, and our politicians are constantly pleading with China to lend more money to us so that we can finance our exploding debt.

Today, the U.S. government pays China approximately 100 million dollars a day in interest on the debt that we owe them.  Those that say that the U.S. debt “does not matter” are being incredibly foolish.

So thanks to our massive trade deficit and our exploding national debt, China is systematically getting wealthier and the United States is systematically getting poorer.

And now China is starting to use a lot of that wealth to aggressively expand their power and influence around the globe.

But isn’t it more than a bit far-fetched to suggest that China may be planning to establish Chinese cities and special economic zones in America?

Not really.

Just look at what has already happened up in Canada.  It is well-known that the Chinese population of Vancouver, Canada has absolutely exploded in recent years.  In fact, the Vancouver suburb of Richmond is now approximately half Chinese.  The following is an excerpt from a BBC article

Richmond is North America’s most Asian city – 50% of residents here identify themselves as Chinese. But it’s not just here that the Chinese community in British Columbia (BC) – some 407,000 strong – has left its mark. All across Vancouver, Chinese-Canadians have helped shape the local landscape.

A similar thing is happening in many communities along the west coast of the United States.  In fact, Chinese citizens purchased one out of every ten homes that were sold in the state of California in 2011.

But in other areas of the United States, the Chinese are approaching things much more systematically.

For example, as I have written about previously, a Chinese group identified as “Sino-Michigan Properties LLC” has purchased 200 acres of land near the town of Milan, Michigan.  Their stated goal is to build a “China City” that has artificial lakes, a Chinese cultural center and hundreds of housing units for Chinese citizens.

In other instances, large chunks of real estate in major U.S. cities that are down on their luck are being snapped up by Chinese investors.  Just check out what a Fortune article from a while back says has been happening over in Toledo, Ohio…

In March 2011, Chinese investors paid $2.15 million cash for a restaurant complex on the Maumee River in Toledo, Ohio. Soon they put down another $3.8 million on 69 acres of newly decontaminated land in the city’s Marina District, promising to invest $200 million in a new residential-commercial development. That September, another Chinese firm spent $3 million for an aging hotel across a nearby bridge with a view of the minor league ballpark.

Toledo is being promoted to Chinese investors as a “5-star logistics region“.  From Toledo it is very easy to get to Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Columbus and Indianapolis…

With a population of 287,000, Toledo is only the fourth largest city in Ohio, but it lies at the junction of two important highways — I-75 and I-80/90. “My vision is to make Toledo a true international city,” Toledo’s Mayor Mike Bell told the Toledo Blade.

But some of these deals appear to be about far more than just making “investments”.  According to the Idaho Statesman, a Chinese company known as Sinomach (which is actually controlled by the Chinese government) was actually interested in developing a 50 square mile self-sustaining “technology zone” south of the Boise airport…

A Chinese national company is interested in developing a 10,000- to 30,000-acre technology zone for industry, retail centers and homes south of the Boise Airport.

Officials of the China National Machinery Industry Corp. have broached the idea — based on a concept popular in China today — to city and state leaders.

The article suggested that this “technology zone” would be modeled after similar projects that already exist in China, and that Chinese officials were conducting similar negotiations with other U.S. states as well…

Sinomach is not looking only at Idaho.

The company sent delegations to Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania this year to talk about setting up research and development bases and industrial parks. It has an interest in electric transmission projects and alternative energy as well.

The technology zone proposal follows a model of science, technology and industrial parks in China — often fully contained cities with all services included.

Thankfully the deal in Idaho appears to be stalled for now, but could we soon see China establish special economic zones in other communities all around America?

The Chinese certainly do seem to be laying the groundwork for something.  They have been voraciously gobbling up important infrastructure all over the country.  The following comes from a recent American Free Press article

In addition to already owning vital ports in Long Beach, Calif. and Boston, Mass., the China Ocean Shipping Company is eyeing major ports on the East Coast and Gulf of Mexico. China also owns access to ports at the entry and exit points of the Panama Canal.

And due to fiscal woes plaguing many American cities and states, U.S. legislators have been actively seeking out Chinese investors. In one of the worst cases, Baton Rouge, La., Mayor Kip Holden offered the Chinese government ownership and operating rights to a new toll way system if the Chinese would provide the funding to build it.

Does it make sense for the Chinese to own some of our most important ports?

Isn’t there a national security risk?

Sadly, there isn’t much of anything that our politicians won’t sell these days as long as someone is willing to flash a lot of cash.

The Chinese have also been busy buying up important real estate on the east coast as a recent Forbes article explained….

According to a recent report in the New York Times, investors from China are “snapping up luxury apartments” and are planning to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on commercial and residential projects like Atlantic Yards in Brooklyn. Chinese companies also have signed major leases at the Empire State Building and at 1 World Trade Center, the report said.

But it is not only just land and infrastructure that the Chinese have been buying up.

They have also been purchasing rights to vital oil and natural gas deposits all over the United States.

There have been two Chinese companies that have been primarily involved in this effort.

The first is the China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC).  According to Wikipedia, CNOOC is 100 percent owned by the Chinese government…

CNOOC Group is a state-owned oil company, fully owned by the Government of the People’s Republic of China, and the State-Owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council (SASAC) performs the rights and obligations of shareholder on behalf of the government.

The second is Sinopec Corporation.  Sinopec Group is the largest shareholder (approx. 75% ownership) in Sinopec Corporation.  And as the Sinopec website tells us, Sinopec Group is fully owned by the Chinese government…

Sinopec Group, the largest shareholder of Sinopec Corp., is a super-large petroleum and petrochemical group incorporated by the State in 1998 based on the former China Petrochemical Corporation. Funded by the State, it is a State authorized investment arm and State-owned controlling company.

So whenever you see CNOOC or Sinopec, you can replace those names with the Chinese government.  The Chinese government essentially runs both of those companies.

And as you can see from the following list compiled by the Wall Street Journal, those two companies have been extremely aggressive in buying up rights to oil and natural gas all over the nation…

Colorado: Cnooc gained a one-third stake in 800,000 acres in northeast Colorado and southeast Wyoming in a $1.27 billion pact with Chesapeake Energy Corp.

Louisiana: Sinopec has a one-third interest in 265,000 acres in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale after a broader $2.5-billion deal with Devon Energy.

Michigan: Sinopec gained a one-third interest in 350,000 acres in a larger $2.5 billion deal with Devon Energy.

Ohio: Sinopec acquired a one-third stake in Devon Energy’s 235,000 Utica Shale acres in a larger $2.5 billion deal.

Oklahoma: Sinopec has a one-third interest in 215,000 acres in a broader $2.5 billion deal with Devon Energy.

Texas: Cnooc acquired a one-third interest in Chesapeake Energy’s 600,000 acres in the Eagle Ford Shale in a $2.16-billion deal.

Wyoming: Cnooc has a one-third stake in 800,000 acres in northeast Colorado and southeast Wyoming after a $1.27 billion pact with Chesapeake Energy. Sinopec gained a one-third interest in Devon Energy’s 320,000 acres as part of a larger $2.5 billion deal.

Gulf of Mexico: Cnooc Ltd. separately acquired minority stakes in some of Statoil ASA’s leases as well as six of Nexen Inc.’s deep-water wells.

So why is the U.S. government allowing this?

That is a very good question.

For a nation that purports to be pursuing “energy independence”, we sure do have a funny way of going about things.

Unfortunately, the sad truth is that China is absolutely mopping the floor with the United States on the global economic stage.  China is rising and America is in an advanced state of decline.  Global economic power has shifted dramatically and most Americans still don’t understand what has happened.

The following are 44 more signs of how dominant the economy of China has become…   MORE



Barack Obama’s war on America’s fresh water supply. The Planned Civil War in America

I have already done one blog piece about this issue of the Great Lakes being siphoned off and depleting America’s fresh water supply, but since I just put up a blog post about the worst draught in over a hundred years, I thought I would link into it with this article.  You need to read this entire post. Watch the videos.  We are being pushed into crisis for a reason.  Nothing that is happening is by accident.

Suzanne Eovaldi, staff writer

Barack Obama is keeping his promise to lower the sea levels, and he’s starting with the drought plagued Midwest where Lake Michigan water is being shipped by the boat loads over to China!  By using a little known loophole in the 2006 Great Lakes Compact, Obama minions are allowing Nestle Company to export precious fresh water out of Lake Michigan to the tune of an estimated $500,000 to $1.8 million per day profit.   By draining the precious jewel of the Great Lakes in the middle of America, our federal water managers are allowing the export of our water out of our country across thousands of miles of oceans into the Asian basin plagued by huge population centers who are suffering from their constant lack of fresh water.  How’s that for cutting America down to size?

The water is being sold at a “240 times markup,” that is, well over 240 times its production costs. (2)  In 2006, then President George W. Bush signed into law a set of agreements aimed at safeguarding and maintaining the Great Lakes which hold 20% of the world’s fresh water.  But clever bureaucrats and corporate profiteers discovered they could use a loophole to bottle and sell Lake Michigan water, water intended for use by its surrounding states and their watershed.  By saying “this loophole allows for Great Lakes water to be labeled a COMMODITY,” our public water officials are allowing the huge supply to be tapped and sold off to companies like Nestle at a very low price.  This water can then be flipped for huge profits!   Surrounding wildlife and water critters depending on fresh Lake Michigan water now are feeling the shortage, and our much needed relief from the horrible Midwest drought of 2012 must compete with foreign countries for water that belongs to America!  If anyone is wondering if this current Administration really does have the concern of America at its heart, then this little publicized Water War should be a huge wake up call for all of us.

    Gorgeous Flathead Lake in northwest Montana boasts one of the largest fresh water lakes west of the Mississippi River.  It will come into their cross hairs soon, if we don’t get busy and start contacting our do nothing Congress about this travesty at 1- Montana and other western states already are up in arms about this all out attempt by Democrats to shut off irrigation water in the Klamath Falls River Basin.

Four dams are slated for permanent destruction.  Who can forget what has been done to America’s breadbasket, California’s Central Valley, along with the San Joaquin Valley?  Our American farmers, our citizens now must compete with foreign countries for our own American water.  When will Barack Obama’s insane war on America’s fresh water supply end?



Folks, this is a serious issue. Our resources provide for our needs.  You need to be aware of what is coming.   We are being set up, and most are unaware as they don’t see the crisis up close and personal.  This video tells you what they are setting up.


Americas Debt to China Paid with U.S. Land and Resources




Nestle And China Stealing Water From The Great Lakes

Nestle Says ‘Water Isn’t A Right’


Published on Oct 13, 2013

Dr Jim Garrow who resides in China talks about how the “litmus test” was created to disarm Americans so China could claim U.S. Land and Resources promised to them by Obama.

Garrow was nominated in 2009 for the Nobel Peace Prize and is the founder of The Pink Pagoda Girls, an organization dedicated to rescuing baby girls from “gendercide” in China.

Garrow has been personally involved in “helping rescue more than 36,000 Chinese baby girls from death.” He is a public figure, not an anonymous voice on the Internet, which makes his claim all the more disturbing.

In his first interview to Jones Garrow added that the Chinese government is playing an important part in all this, since, being the major creditor to a bankrupted U.S. it expects to take over most U.S. natural resources in the near future; the Chinese expect there will be some open, popular resistance to this sort of move.

So, and according to Garrow, they are demanding the U.S. government to guarantee a neo-colonialism security apparatus, by disarming its citizens and creating the general conditions for a “state of emergency”, military clampdown on the people, if ever the “need” for one arises.

20 Signs The Epic Drought In The Western United States Is Starting To Become Apocalyptic

This is a very sad story, and one you won’t get in mainstream media.  Once the water is gone how long do you think the people who have depended on those sources will survive? This is an emergency crisis situation, and the media would rather cover the latest Miley Cirus escapade.

20 Signs The Epic Drought In The Western United States Is Starting To Become Apocalyptic

When scientists start using phrases such as “the worst drought” and “as bad as you can imagine”, you know that things are bad


By Michael Snyder, on July 15th, 2014

Drought Monitor July 8 2014When scientists start using phrases such as “the worst drought” and “as bad as you can imagine” to describe what is going on in the western half of the country, you know that things are bad.  Thanks to an epic drought that never seems to end, we are witnessing the beginning of a water crisis that most people never even dreamed was possible in this day and age.  The state of California is getting ready to ban people from watering their lawns and washing their cars, but if this drought persists we will eventually see far more extreme water conservation measures than that.  And the fact that nearly half of all of the produce in America comes out of the state of California means that ultimately this drought is going to deeply affect all of us.  Food prices have already been rising at an alarming rate, and the longer this drought goes on the higher they will go.   Let us hope and pray that this drought is permanently broken at some point, because otherwise we could very well be entering an era of extreme water rationing, gigantic dust storms and crippling food prices.  The following are 20 signs that the epic drought in the western half of the United States is starting to become apocalyptic…

#1 According to the Los Angeles Times, downtown Los Angeles is now the driest that it has been since records began being kept all the way back in 1877.

#2 The California State Water Resources Control Board says that nearly 50 communities are already on the verge of running out of water.

#3 In a desperate attempt to conserve water, the state of California is considering banning watering lawns and washing cars.  Once implemented, violators will be slapped with a $500 fine for each offense.

#4 It has been reported that a new social media phenomenon known as “drought shaming” has begun in California.  People are taking videos and photos of their neighbors wasting water and posting them to Facebook and Twitter.

#5 Climate scientist Tim Barnett says that the water situation in Las Vegas “is as bad as you can imagine“, and he believes that unless the city “can find a way to get more water from somewhere” it will soon be “out of business”.

#6 The water level in Lake Mead has now fallen to the lowest level since 1937, and it continues to drop at a frightening pace.  You can see some incredible photos of what has happened to Lake Mead right here.

#7 Rob Mrowka of the Center for Biological Diversity believes that the city of Las Vegas is going to be forced to downsize because of the lack of water…

#8 In some areas of southern Nevada, officials are actually paying people to remove their lawns in a desperate attempt to conserve water.

#9 According to Accuweather, “more than a decade of drought” along the Colorado River has set up an “impending Southwest water shortage” which could ultimately affect tens of millions of people.

#10 Most people don’t realize this, but the once mighty Colorado River has become so depleted that it no longer runs all the way to the ocean.

#11 Lake Powell is less than half full at this point.

#12 It is being projected that the current drought in California will end up costing the state more than 2 billion dollars this year alone.

#13 Farmers in California are allowing nearly half a million acres to lie fallow this year due to the extreme lack of water.

#14 The lack of produce coming from the state of California will ultimately affect food prices in the entire nation.  Just consider the following statistics from a recent Business Insider article

#15 As underground aquifers are being relentlessly drained in California, some areas of the San Joaquin Valley are sinking by 11 inches a year.

#16 It is being projected that the Kansas wheat harvest will be the worst that we have seen since 1989.

#17 The extended drought has created ideal conditions for massive dust storms to form.  You can see video of one female reporter bravely reporting from the middle of a massive dust storm in Phoenix right here.

#18 Things are so dry in California right now that people are actually starting to steal water.  For example, one Mendocino County couple recently had 3,000 gallons of water stolen from them.  It was the second time this year that they had been hit.

#19 At the moment, close to 80 percent of the state of California is experiencing either “extreme” or “exceptional” drought.

#20 National Weather Service meteorologist Eric Boldt says that this is “the worst drought we probably have seen in our lifetime“.
