New ZetaTalk Earth Changes Announcements Signs of the Times

Whither the Cities

A recent ZetaTalk on the Hong Kong riots raised an issue. Whither the cities during the Last Weeks and Pole Shift, and the Aftertime?

ZetaTalk Comment 10/4/2014: The larger issue is the looming need to declare martial law in the near future after the announcement. The reaction in the public is an unknown. We have stated that the public will react with stunned inactivity, going through their daily routine in shock. The familiar routine comforts, and the average citizen lives paycheck to paycheck and does not have the capacity to take action. They will wait, and see what plans and policies are put into place by their governments. Martial Law will not be imposed automatically, but in stages. Earthquakes and tidal waves and crop shortages will begin to alarm the populace who will make strident demands on their governments, and when they discover that no solutions are being offered to them, rioting will indeed begin.

Nancy has noted that China plans to move their populace inland into their ghost cities, and to irrigate their deserts. Russia plans to move their populous western regions to their Far East. Both these countries have put plans into place, and are implementing them. In the US, where 80% of the citizenry lives in cities, federal agencies are being armed in a rather obvious manner. Why are cities, or city states, such a worry? Cities do not feed themselves, but rural areas do produce food and can be encouraged or forced to shift to produce that which is less lucrative but would feed more people.

Cities reduced to survival of the strongest have been regularly featured in the movies, notably Escape from New York and Escape from LA.  Such movies focus on the social dynamics, avoiding the question of what these people eat. The occupants of these cities never seem to be suffering from malnutrition or vitamin deficiency.

Escape from New York
The film is set in a then-near future 1997 in a crime-ridden United States that has converted Manhattan Island in New York City into a maximum security prison.
Escape from L.A.
An earthquake strikes Los Angeles, causing the San Fernando Valley to flood and turning a portion of California into an island from Malibu to Anaheim. A containment wall is built around the island with armed guards and watchtowers posted. Those sent to the island are exiled permanently.

The Zetas have stated since the start of the ZetaTalk saga that survival in the cities will be tough. Cities along the coast will be assaulted by tidal waves, and those inland and along rivers will be flooded. The National Geographic special – Aftermath: World without Humans – paints a picture of what water damage will do to cities.

ZetaTalk Prediction 7/15/1995: Cities in the main are established on coastlines and broad rivers, where fish and transportation ease abound. When the massive tidal waves slosh back and forth, these cities do slip under the rising water and are utterly decimated. The cities are destroyed, completely. Buildings that remain are not repaired, as there are no hands to do so. They crumble under the weather, stones eroding and covered by blowing volcanic dust and eventually rooting plants as the endless rains have made the volcanic dust into inviting soil.

In addition to earthquake damage and the fires that ensue from broken gas mains, it will be the lack of potable water, broken grids, sewage spawned disease, but primarily the lack of food that will deal the death blow.

ZetaTalk Prediction 5/4/2002: The ground under cities will experience this too. Urban residents are lulled into thinking that they are safe, the gas lines capped and water lines tight, electric power trips to keep surges in line. Millions go to work and fall asleep assured by their leaders that all is in hand, with rescue teams alert and at the ready. In fact, the weak link is just waiting to break, from a source not anticipated by the city architects. Water lines can snap when the piping is put under pressure or stretched. Gas lines certainly can experience cracks and snaps. If electrical power lines, not as insulated as reported, and leaking gas, and water that conducts electricity, are put together, what do you have? Buildings with heavy plumbing running up to all the toilets and showers have a sinkhole developing under them. They will implode. Gas line leaks set off in an explosion caused by adjustments under a city, will not just be limited to a building or block, but will ricochet through the city, creating a holocaust potentially. Some of these potentially can make the World Trade Center disaster look mild.

Statistics show that half the world’s population lives in cities, and more than half of these cities group along coastlines or inland rivers. What is called developed, or industrialized countries have more of their populace living in cities, where more primitive or Third-World countries, less mechanized, are less closely packed into cities. The UK has 89% of its population living in cities, the US 80%, while Ethiopia has 16% and New Guinea has 13%.

Of the 83 largest cities (those over 3 million), those living along coastlines were more populous than those inland, in total. Shanghai, Karachi, Beijing, Lagos, Istanbul, Guangzhou, Sao Paulo, Shenzhen, Seoul, Jakarta, Tianjin, Tokyo, Lima, London, New York City, Bangkok, Dongguan, Ho Chi Minh City, Hong Kong, Rio de Janeiro, Foshan, Singapore, Shantou, Luanda, St. Petersburg, Chennai, Abidjan, Yangon, Alexandria, Kolkata, Surat, Dar es Salaam, Suzhou, New Taipei City, Los Angeles, Cape Town, Yokohama, Busan, Hangzhou, Xiamen, Quanzhou, Jeddah, Durban, Wenzhou will be affected by the tidal waves that will assault coastlines, while Deli, Mumbai, Moscow, Dhaka, Cairo, Lahore, Bangalore, Kinshasa, Mexico City, Hyderabad, Pune, Tehran, Bogotá, Baghdad, Wuhan, Hanoi, Santiago, Riyadh, Ahmedabad, Chengdu, Chongqing, Xi'an, Johannesburg, Nanjing, Ankara, Harbin, Giza, Zhengzhou, Shenyang, Berlin, Kabul, Jaipur, Hefei, Pyongyang, Madrid, Ekurhuleni, Nairobi, Addis Ababa, Changsha may be spared the coastal tides but will likewise suffer the quakes and hurricane force winds. Living in the cities is just not the place to be going into and after the Pole Shift.

List of Cities Proper by Population
The list only includes cities with a population of 3 million and above.

Forced Labor

If industrialized countries have the majority of their populace living in cities, what to do when food shortages and broken distribution routes result in a starvation crisis? How many spoiled city dwellers will pick up a hoe and swap their soft lives of video games and shopping for baubles for the aching muscles and callused hands of the rural farming community? Some will willingly shift to survival community mode, but if Martial Law is called, and it will be, then forced labor camps will result.

Ukraine Government Officially Introduces Slavery, with Vague Terms
September 26, 2014
The Ukrainian Ministry of Social Policy announced official civilian slavery, via an obscure press release, headlined “The Government has extended the list of community service under martial law”. In particular, the Procedure now defines the term “labor service” to mean that the people [will be] involved without mandatory consent, subject to enforcement operations.
New Images Show Scale of North Korea Prisons
December 5, 2013
Satellite images released by the rights group, Amnesty International, show on-going developments at North Korea's main political prison camps - camp 15 and 16. Not only do they have to work pretty much most of the day in dangerous conditions where they could die at any time, they also have very little food. It is estimated thousands of political prisoners languish in jails in North Korea, which has the biggest standing army in the world.

ZetaTalk Comment 10/4/2014: Hong Kong, as with New York City or London, has a massive population almost completely divorced from farming skills and knowledge. What to do with these citizens? Told to march into the fields and pick up a hoe, to eat bugs and tasteless vegetables when they are used to cuisine, they will argue and fuss. Their governments have few choices. Forced labor camps is one solution, and forced labor camps imply Martial Law. Another alternative is to blockade exit from the cities until the citizenry starves, resorts to cannibalism, and dies off. When watching the incremental march toward Martial Law, consider what choices the establishment has. They are few!

Martial Law

Martial Law has been invoked on occasion in many countries in the recent past. It essentially means allowing the military to run the country for a period of time. Curfews, setting aside civil rights, and strong arm tactics should be anticipated.

Martial Law
Martial law is usually imposed on a temporary basis when the government or civilian authorities fail to function effectively (e.g., maintain order and security, or provide essential services). Martial law can be used by governments to enforce their rule over the public. Such incidents may occur after a coup d'état (such as Thailand in 2006 and 2014); when threatened by popular protest (China, Tiananmen Square protests of 1989); to suppress political opposition (Poland in 1981); or to stabilize insurrections or perceived insurrections (Canada, The October Crisis of 1970). Martial law may be declared in cases of major natural disasters; however, most countries use a different legal construct, such as a state of emergency. Typically, the imposition of martial law accompanies curfews, the suspension of civil law, civil rights, habeas corpus, and the application or extension of military law or military justice to civilians. Civilians defying martial law may be subjected to military tribunal (court-martial).

The Zetas have defined the Bush Administration’s scheming to impose Martial Law (for whatever excuse) as a desire to protect the elite and their way of life and assets from the common man. This is their wish, but what actually plays out may be something quite different.

ZetaTalk Overview 9/7/2004: Well timed martial law would supplant what the elite fear with a controlled setting, where:

  1. Travel would be prevented, and jobs attended to, by force, with workers returned to their jobs by gunpoint if necessary. Thus the power and water utilities would work, and food distribution would continue.
  2. Looting would be reduced greatly by curfews and travel restrictions, and the wildfire effect would never ignite.
  3. Brutal military techniques would not incite rebellion as torture would occur behind doors, not in the streets, and the organization needed to incite rebellion unable to occur due to curfew and travel restrictions and selective arrests of likely suspects.
  4. Access to stock markets and banking would be controlled, so that the system never reaches collapse due to liquidation demands it cannot meet and the populace feels they must continue to honor their bills and obligations, as the monster lives and has not died.
  5. Spearheaded from central commands, martial law instituted to encompass all possible militia units would prevent breakaway by exposing such maneuvers. A unit on its own can breakaway, a unit required to check in and coordinate with others finds this option exposed, and thus inhibited.
  6. The infrastructure of power and water utilities intact and supporting an intact financial system, the political and thus the legal system is likely to prevail and not collapse, and thus fear of the courts could be used to prevent retaliatory acts against the wealthy elite.
  7. The status quo continues, paper money and deeds and stock ownership of corporations still has the strong arm of the law behind it, and the common man sees the fist above them, uneroded, and continues to walk in the ruts of their workaday world, despite new dangers such as earthquakes and a tottering and wobbling Earth.

Henry Kissinger, aligned with the ultra-right and strong proponent of the New World Order has recently stated that the concept is now dead. The world will not cooperate with a US centric/Euro centric leadership! The Wall Street Journal quotes from Kissinger’s new book World Order. What could have arrived between 2009 and 2014 to dash Kissinger’s hopes? It is likely the announcement admitting the pending passage of Nibiru, which so many of the elite have fought to thwart. Empowered by knowledge, the common man will refuse to support the elite, which has sought to enslave them via ignorance and debt. Poor Henry! And he had worked so hard!

Kissinger: Obama Primed to Create 'New World Order'
January 6, 2009
Obama have created the perfect setting for establishment of “a New World Order,” according to Henry Kissinger, the Nobel Peace Prize winner and former secretary of state under President Nixon. Kissinger has long been an integral figure in U.S. foreign policy, holding positions in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations. The phrase “New World Order” causes alarm for many Americans, particularly those concerned about an international governing body trumping U.S. sovereignty or those that interpret biblical prophecy to foretell the establishment of a one-world government as key to the rise of the Antichrist. Conspiracy theorists, too, have latched on to the phrase, concerned that powerful financial or government figures are secretly plotting to rule the world.
Henry Kissinger on the Assembly of a New World Order
August 29, 2014
The search for world order has long been defined almost exclusively by the concepts of Western societies. The years from perhaps 1948 to the turn of the century marked a brief moment in human history when one could speak of an incipient global world order composed of an amalgam of American idealism and traditional European concepts of statehood and balance of power. But vast regions of the world have never shared and only acquiesced in the Western concept of order. These reservations are now becoming explicit, for example, in the Ukraine crisis and the South China Sea. The order established and proclaimed by the West stands at a turning point. Parts of the Middle East have dissolved into sectarian and ethnic components in conflict with each other.

How will the elite’s wish list differ from what will actually occur, as the Earth changes progress and Martial Law is steadily imposed around the world?

ZetaTalk Description 8/23/2014: Obama and his partners have informed Heads of State of the general content of the announcement and an approximate date. The first reaction of Heads of State is to brace for rioting. Even if the public is not familiar with ZetaTalk and its predictions for massive tidal waves, they will soon discover it. And even if establishment figures argue that the ZetaTalk scenario is improbable, the ZetaTalk accuracy track record will start to accumulate until our words become legend. The establishment anticipates that every crop shortage, every water shortage, every uptick in earthquakes or disease will be related to the pending passage, with a demand for government action. What then? Depending upon the country and the culture, martial law will evolve everywhere.

The US is a gun haven, and everybody under the Sun is armed to the teeth. The US would likely have some of the most problematic situations. NOAA, the USPS, the State Department, Homeland Security, and the Department of Agriculture – federal agencies - are allowing their people to become armed. So you have federal agencies arming themselves in anticipation of martial law and having to get heavy handed, and not necessarily having the US military right at their shoulder to be able to come in and settle disagreements.  In a similar manner England, France, and Germany are preparing.  

China would have no problem with martial law because it is a communist country, an essential dictatorship, although benign. They would do so without hesitation, in steps, as rioting developed.  They already have a huge population which is starving. And they have a lot of laws in place which much of the world considers dictatorial, such as the one child rule, and everybody is used to that. So there would be no raised eyebrows in China. Russia has already shown its muscle in the Crimea and the Ukraine. They have in the past shown their muscle in dealing with Chechens, with terrorists. And they likewise are close enough to former dictatorships that they would have no problem slipping into martial law.

India is already at starvation levels among much of their people.  And if the populace becomes aware of steady sinking, there’s going to be panic. And there certainly will be rioting in cities to rush the enclaves of the wealthy. So to what extent will the government rise up and just blow people away? People will try to clamor into boats and go elsewhere, and will be dying at sea. Countries such as Australia will sink their boats, blast a hole in the boat, and all those Indians will be bouncing around in the waves and drown and nobody will hear of this. Australia is already brutal with immigrants, and it's one step away to being heavy handed with their citizens.

In less industrial countries, as in the majority of S America and Africa, the populace is used to feeding itself and even in the cities most of the populace is only a generation away from a rural lifestyle. In industrial countries the cities, particularly those along the vulnerable coastlines, will be ready to flash into riots, especially when food shortages become intractable. We have endlessly advised that those wanting to survive move to rural areas and learn to garden and keep flocks and herds, well ahead of the time when travel restrictions might be imposed. Have a foot hold in the country, so that you and your family can move there when the time comes.
