North Dakotans Need To Begin Preparing For Nationwide Civil Unrest And Shortages

Sometimes I wish that I could shake and slap every North Dakotan awake, for their own good.  No one else is going to tell them what I am about to tell them, so it must not be true, how could it be true?

Most North Dakotans are in-tune with what North Dakota is and is not, what it has and it doesn’t have.  The fact that there are less than 800,000 people in the entire state, that people are spread out over a large area, that there are very few large cities in North Dakota.  That’s good that North Dakotans understand themselves, more than sixty percent of them voted for Donald Trump, recognizing how disastrous Joe Biden would be for North Dakota as President.

But thirty percent of North Dakotans were and are too stupid to even realize that Joe Biden whose hands shake uncontrollably with tremors, who often speaks as if he has lost his mind, who is suffering from advanced stages of dementia, who has said that he will ban hydraulic fracturing to extract oil, and that he will block the construction of oil pipelines, they voted for Joe Biden to be the next President, even though this will be devastating to North Dakota.

Maybe this message isn’t for those thirty percent who are so stupid that they voted for Joe Biden.  My belief is that many of the Joe Biden voters in North Dakota get their pay check from the government, and therefore think that they will be spared if the economy crashes.  Why else would they vote the way that they did?

The warning that I am going to give and explain to North Dakotans, isn’t really about what is going to happen in North Dakota at first, it’s about what is going to happen to the rest of the country first.

Whether Joe Biden is sworn in as President or not, there is probably going to be rioting and looting in the large cities on the west coast and the east coast, and other large liberal cities, cities like:  Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Albuquerque, Denver, St. Louis, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Atlanta.

The reason for the rioting and looting, whether Joe Biden is sworn in as President or not, is that the masses of poor, uneducated, miserable people crowded together in the big cities are tired of being poor and having no opportunities.  They want more, they want better conditions, they want free health care, and access to free money, and they have been taught by the media and the Democrats that the way to get anything, is to riot, loot, burn their city, cause violence, and to disrupt their city in order to get media attention and efforts to pay them off.

At this time, the widespread belief in rioting, looting, burning, violence, and disruption is being reinforced by main stream media, and Democrats, in that the City Councils, Mayors, and Governors do nothing to stop this, they won’t even call it what it is, and refer to this behavior as “demonstrations” or “protests”.  The main stream media and Democrats are supporting this type of disruption and chaos, because it aids and coincides with their plans.

Here is the point that I want North Dakotans to understand, as far as the main stream media, the Democrats, and the millions of poor city-dwellers are concerned, they don’t want the conservative mid-western U.S. states to merely watch the riots, looting, burning, violence, and disruption on TV, they want the mid-west states to suffer from it.

The urbanites have realized that rioting, looting, burning, violence, and disruption gets them attention and causes efforts to be made to pacify them, but in order to really get something they are going to have to affect more people.  They are going to have to disrupt interstate travel, interstate and nationwide distribution, manufacturing, nationwide infrastructure and utilities, international shipping, and cause resources to be redirected to them.

The reason why the main stream media and the Democrats have brought these millions of poor city-dwellers to this type of thinking and behavior, is that the liberal media and the Democrats want to bring about a Revolution.  There must first be a Revolution, and then a response, in order to transform the United States into a different type of country, to Socialism.

If there can be enough chaos and disruption in the large liberal cities to slow down international shipping to ports and airports of strategic resources, components, parts, electronics, medication; a disruption in manufacturing; an interruption in the nationwide distribution of food, medication, and necessities; an interference with telecommunications, energy distribution, and water distribution, all of these things would affect the conservative mid-west states, which would then have to accept the Federal Government’s “emergency measures”.

The first time I heard the expression, “Don’t let a crisis go to waste”, I believe that it came from President Barack Obama’s Chief Of Staff Rahm Emanuel.  Barack Obama and Rahm Emanuel were heavily involved in Chicago politics, and there is evidence that they both were followers of Chicago activist Saul Alinsky who wrote  Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer (1971), a guide to organizing and directing poor city dwellers during a conflict.  I believe that the Democrats went from “Not letting a crisis go to waste”, to “Creating a crisis, that they could then use to achieve their political goals”, which is exactly what the Communists did.

The take-away that I want North Dakotans to get from this article, is that the Democrats will soon use the unhappiness and anger of the millions of poor city-dwellers to allow them and encourage them to cause disruptions which will affect the whole U.S. with shortages of one kind or another.  Increasingly severe corona virus lock downs could even be one of the tactics that the Democrats will use to create shortages.

So, I strongly recommend that North Dakotans begin steadily building up their personal home supplies of necessities that they will need if there are shortages:  bottled water; batteries; storable food like canned goods and dry goods; pet food; medication; paper towels; toilet paper; firearms & ammunition; emergency cash; things of value to use for trade; very warm clothing in case of power outages.  Come up with your own list of things that you might need.

Remember, the Democrat tactic now will be to create a crisis, in order to implement Federal Government “emergency measures”, which will be an attempt to change the U.S. more towards Socialism.

Update 11/16/20: I expected to have difficulty in convincing North Dakotans that they have something to worry about, that the rest of the U.S. and especially the densely populated areas would be experiencing such calamity and shortages that people in places like Dickinson would need to start building up their preparedness supplies.

Today I saw a CNN news article with photos, showing a line of 1,000 cars waiting to get food at a food bank in Texas.  Please look at these photos and read the article.  In a single day 25,000 people went through this line to receive food assistance.  40% of these people were using a food bank for their first time.  If you can’t tell what is going to happen in the rest of the country from this, there is nothing that will make you understand. https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/11/15/us/dallas-texas-food-bank-coronavirus/index.html

Current Indicators Of A Work Slow Down In Dickinson, North Dakota

On Wednesday February 15 at 8:30 p.m., I went to the new Family Fare Grocery store in Dickinson, North Dakota that opened in approximately 2015.  I would estimate that the shopping area in this grocery store is 300 ft long x 200 ft wide, pretty big.  In the parking lot there were about ten vehicles.  While shopping inside, I saw two other customers.  When I went to check out, none of the cash registers had a light on, and there were no cashiers on duty, not one.  This is the first grocery store that I have ever been to in my life that did not have a least one cash register open and one cashier on duty.  Keep in mind that it was now 8:45 p.m. on a Wednesday night, and it was a good weather night, not cold and not snowing.

I went through a self-check out line to pay for my groceries.  On the way out, I looked to see if they had anyone working at their coffee shop, and there was not a soul around.  At the old Family Fare Grocery store beside Runnings, and at this new Family Fare Grocery store near Menards, I had noticed that through the latter part of 2016 and into 2017, these two stores began to minimize their staff more and more.  But not having even one cashier on duty seemed very drastic.

But if I think back a little further, the Family Fare Grocery store and the Wal-Mart in Dickinson had both been open 24 hours a day up until approximately the end of 2015.  I can remember when there used to be a long line at the check out in the Family Fare Grocery store in Dickinson at 8:30 p.m. on a week night.  I can remember when there were more shoppers in the Family Fare Grocery store in Dickinson at 2:00 a.m., than there are now at 8:30 p.m.

On Saturday afternoon February 11th, I had to go to the Ace Hardware store in Dickinson.  I regretted that I had not gone there during the week, I thought that the store would be crowded and very busy on Saturday.  When I got there, I thought that the store must have closed at noon or something, because there were no cars in the parking lot, and hardly any cars in the parking spaces in front of the store.  The store wasn’t closed.  There were only two customers inside.  Since 2011 when I first came to Dickinson, I have never seen the Ace Hardware parking lot anywhere near that vacant.

In the same shopping center where the Ace Hardware store is located, there is the King Buffet Chinese restaurant.  This has been one of the most popular restaurants in Dickinson for the past several years because it is all-you-can-eat, it is not expensive, they have a variety of food, and the food is pretty good.  In approximately 2014 this restaurant nearly doubled its size by expanding into the adjacent business spaces.  Driving by the King Buffet Chinese restaurant this past week after 8:00 p.m., the parking lot was nearly vacant, there were hardly any customers.

Throughout Dickinson, the local people who own homes here, keep saying, “The oil field work is picking up again, it is coming back.”  I see no evidence for this, the evidence shows the exact opposite.  I hate and dislike local people saying, “The oil field work is picking up again, it is coming back.”, because this is an outright lie, meant to keep people here and prevent the real estate prices from collapsing.  I don’t like people trying to lie to and trick other people for financial gain.

The only thing that I see happening, is oil production continuing at current levels, and the people involved in maintaining the current level of production keeping their jobs.  I believe that for the next several years, the number of oil well drill rigs operating in North Dakota will be between 40 to 80 drill rigs.  I don’t see any reason for a mad rush to drill as many oil wells as possible as quickly as possible, because a great number of oil wells being completed and coming into production at the same time would make an oversupply of oil, and cause an oil price drop that would make each of the new oil wells not profitable.  It seems obvious at this point, due to the current low price of oil, that oversupply of oil makes oil wells not profitable.

Because of the steady rate of oil production, and 40 to 80 drill rigs operating, there will not be a huge demand for new workers in the oil field in North Dakota in the next several years.  Many workers will not have the opportunity to work a great deal of overtime hours.  Pay will not be as high as it had been during the oil boom years of 2007 through 2015.  The decrease in pay, the decrease in the demand for housing, and people leaving the area due to the inability to find replacement jobs when jobs are lost, will make the price of housing decrease.  My guess would be that the price of housing in Dickinson will decrease 10% by the end of 2017.
