Former CIA General: The Dam Is Just About To Break On Our Economy, And When It Does, There’s Going To Be A Major Disruption Of The Distribution Of Food

Lt. General William Boykin (retired) told TruNews Radio Tuesday that the U.S. economy of the United States “is just about the break” and collapse.  And when the dam gives way, severe food shortages and pervasive violence throughout America will warrant, in his opinion, an executive declaration of martial law.

“I’ll be very honest with you; the situation in America could be such that martial law is actually warranted, and that situation in my view could occur if we had an economic collapse,” said Boykin, a former CIA Deputy Director of Special Activities.

“The dam is just about to break on our economy, and I think when it does, there’s going to be a major disruption of the distribution of food,” he added. “And I think what you’ll see particularly in the inner cities is you will see riots, civil unrest that ultimately might justify martial law.”

Though the U.S. is the world’s largest exporter of agriculture, in the case of a currency collapse, producers will withhold shipments to retailers and consumers unable to pay in a currency other than U.S. dollars.  For a time, barter will take the place of currency for those living in rural areas, but for the majority of Americans living in cities and adjacent suburbs, food shortages can emerge within 24 hours.

“I think those people that are not in the major cities are going to be far better off, but it could actually justify martial law,” Boykin continued.  “And I’m praying that we will not see that kind of collapse, we won’t see a disruption of the distribution of food in America.  That’s probably the single biggest problem.”

Recommendations by “prepper” organizations and a handful of governments (as in the case of Utah and some municipalities) to include storing enough nonperishable food to last a month to 90 days have become commonplace during the four-year-long economic recession, as the history of currency collapses throughout the world demonstrate that for a meaningful period of time food will not be available at grocery stores, food pantries and other collective emergency food supplies.

Word of the day: Prepare! And do it the old fashion way, like our fore-fathers did it and succeed long before us, because what lies ahead of us will require all the help we can get. Watch this video and learn the 3 skills that ensured our ancestors survival in hard times of  famine and war.

Recent examples of food shortages due to rapid currency devaluations include Argentina in 2002; Cuba, following the fall of the Soviet Union in 1989; and in Zimbabwe during its currency collapse of the late 2000s.

Although, the U.S. is not expected to match Zimbabwe in intensity and duration of inflation (89 sextillion percent in 2008), all nations undergo a period of profound dislocation of commerce during a currency devaluation, which may range from as little as several weeks to several months.  At that time, food becomes the king of all commodities while government reestablishes a new workable currency to reestablish normal commerce once again.

“If people can eat, they can survive for some period of time while we get through the economic crisis and reestablish currency, and systems, and all that,” said Boykin.  “But if they can’t eat, you know, they’re going to fight.  And that’s my big concern.”

From his intelligence, as well as from numerous publicly-available anecdotal testimonies and leaked government documents, the U.S. military has been preparing with local law enforcement for a coming crisis.  Boykin strongly advises the public to make preparations for the most likely scenario of a coming breakdown of the food distribution channels in America during a dollar collapse.

“For me, I have three months of food stored.  I have a bunch of other essentials that I have stored in my home,” he said.  “And my wife and I are preparing for this.

“Now a lot of people call us, you know, foolish, for that kind of attitude,” he added.  “But I would tell you that I’m not going to be unprepared, and I think people should be prepared now for some disruption. You know this economic collapse is a very strong possibility.  We need to get ready for it, and we need to be thinking through and developing plans for how we’re going to react to it.”

  1. Thank you for making my personal students have access to your website post. Your kindness will be greatly appreciated. I’ve got some ongoing projects and I wanted all these students assist me with it. The only way they could do this was carry out some exploration on the internet so as to help make my work faster. They came across your site along with the content on it, specially this blog post, seriously helped them to come to good conclusions on things we needed to carry out. Of course, I will continue to visit the site for new updates on this major and other issues useful.

  2. What is the poster of this article “selling”?

    Coming from someone who’s been prepping since 1981, I’ve seen it all, up close and personal. Sorry to deflate the romantic notion of a “collapse”, but it ain’t gonna’ turn out the way one might think i might.

    What if there was a collapse and the only ones that came were those who wanted it?

  3. Of course martial law will be warranted. This is what the communist running your government want. The only way to get rid of your pesky Constitution!

  4. Oh is this the same Boykin who considers all Muslims to be slaves of Satan and who wore his uniform while preaching similar tripe? How hysterical ninnies get promoted to generals in today’s military is beyond me. In the meantime, General Boykin, keep looking for those satanic Moozlims under your bed!

  5. Bullcrap, I guess nobody reads the great acts of the people to come togather in bad times
    Food can be grown in a week anywhere, anyplace, anytime.
    Salads ( lettuce) is very quick.
    This country has more food and seeds to feed everyone .
    Not to mention all the fish and foul living natutally all across tjos nation.
    Fear porn,
    Wake the hell up people. You all underestimate the human mind.
    We in the north laugh at all the city peoples weakness, fear, laziness, pure ignorance.
    You all livimg away from the natural world cause it is easy, will perish in the near future.
    Think you all are going to nug out to our beautiful countryside to continue to rape and waste, have a shock waiting for them, WE ARE HERE, AND WE SURE WILLNOT ALLOW YOU TO COME .
    WE (N.WISCONSIN) have already made plans to keep You all out.
    No bug out going to take place here. Death awaits the city slicker comming north.
    This opinion resonates will all in our town.
    Roads will be closed, bridges gone, armed people with no empathy for the weak slicker, just bullets.
    You made the cities, your bed, lay in it and suffer in what u created.
    We wait.

    1. The people coming to your part of town will also be heavily armed. You’ll be massively outnumbered, you won’t stand a chance.

    2. Grow food in a weeek!? Sorry, wrong, never has and never will be.. lettuce takes a minimum of 45 days and does not have enough nutrition to survive on.. and the angry gang bangers and criminals will be knocking down every door they come to in great numbers and you will not be able to do a thing about it..

  6. $$$$$ buy buy buy survivalist books, ammo, freeze dried food, survivalist supplies, gold or other precious metals because when there’s little food those who have some will come running to you to trade for your gold.
    quit listening to all the negativity, fear, and hate from the right wing media and websites like this one. do the predictions ever come true? have republicans ever delivered on their promises of prosperity for average working americans? don’t fall for con jobs and conspiracy theories.

    1. Come out of your closet oh Liberal Progressive Socialist kool-aid drinkin’ mumbo jumbo speakin youngun..
