Civil War Rumor: Put This One on Hold

Written by Gary North on May 7, 2012

An audio report on the Trunews site says that the Department of Homeland Security is preparing for a civil war in the United States. The reason: hyperinflation.

The source was one man, unnamed, inside the DHS.

The scenario is conceivable: hyperinflation. But it assumes that the Federal Reserve will be willing to destroy the dollar. That would destroy the FED’s credibility. It would threaten its supposed control over the business cycle.

The article says the informant thinks there will be no election this fall. That is a red flag: a real out-of-touch right-winger. I first heard this preposterous claim before the 1964 election. It is utterly absurd. Why? Because the Establishment rests its case for democracy on the assumption that the elections are not Council on Foreign Relations Team A vs. Council on Foreign Relations Team B. It means voters would have a choice, not an echo. Except in 1964, they haven’t. The Establishment controls who gets nominated — except in 1964.

I learned long ago to ignore anyone who says we may not get an election. It shows total ignorance about how this country works.

Here is the report.

In a riveting interview on TruNews Radio, Wednesday, private investigator Doug Hagmann said high-level, reliable sources told him the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is preparing for “massive civil war” in America.

“We have problems . . . The federal government is preparing for civil uprising,” he added, “so every time you hear about troop movements, every time you hear about movements of military equipment, the militarization of the police, the buying of the ammunition, all of this is . . . they (DHS) are preparing for a massive uprising.”

Hagmann goes on to say that his sources tell him the concerns of the DHS stem from a collapse of the U.S. dollar and the hyperinflation a collapse in the value of the world’s primary reserve currency implies to a nation of 311 million Americans, who, for the significant portion of the population, is armed.

A civil war is not going to happen in this nation. We had one already.

A civil war implies two sides. There are not two sides. The voters are so close to each other that neither party can get a clear majority. The thought that Americans are willing to choose sides and fight a civil war is utterly crazy. Soft people who live in front of TV 7 hours a day are not civil war participants.

You can safely ignore this.

“The one source that we have I’ve known since 1979,” Hagmann continued. “He started out as a patrol officer and currently he is now working for a federal agency under the umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security; he’s in a position to know what policies are being initiated, what policies are being planned at this point, and he’s telling us right now—look, what you’re seeing is just the tip of the iceberg. We are preparing, we, meaning the government, we are preparing for a massive civil war in this country.”

One lone informant who has spent his life on a government payrol is not my idea of a reliable source. How would he know what the DHS is planning for? The DHS is a huge government agency that has no plan except getting bigger.

That the DHS is preparing for possible rioting is quite possible. No one is going to say “inner cities.” That would be politically incorrect. I’ll say it. They are not worried about suburbia.

He added, “It’s going to get so much worse toward the election, and I’m not even sure we’re going to have an election in this country. It’s going to be that bad, and this, as well, is coming from my sources.

Then his sources had better stop smoking whatever it is they are smoking.

“What they [DHS] are expecting, and again, this is according to my sources, what they’re expecting is the un-sustainability of the American dollar,” Hagmann said. “And we know for a fact that we can no longer service our debt. There’s going to be a period of hyperinflation . . . the dollar will be worthless . . . The economic collapse will be so severe, people won’t be ready for this.”

Not in 2012. Not in 2013. Not in 2014. A nation does not move from 2% price inflation to 100% or more in a year or two. To do this, banks would have to start lending: converting the FED’s monetary base into purchasing power used by consumers: increased money velocity. Do you think bankers will be lending in a civil war?

If the DHS is preparing for this, near term, the leaders are dumber than posts.

You can safely ignore this rumor.

    Actually, I don`t beieve any individual such as me has any idea as to what Obama will do when he makes his move. There are a few people on the inside who do know, but they wil not devulge much meaningful information to the general public. All we can do is wonder and guess. One thing that we do know, is that Obama and his minions seem to have definate planns for somethng something, they hope we will not discover in advance of the time he has set for implementataion of his plan. Obama is one Muslim that bearts watching. He is a tricky one.

    I'm not saying I believe it is true, but North's reasons for NOT believing it are very naive. First, to define "Civil War" as only consisting of strictly divided parties against one another is simplistic and unrealistic. The fact that there is routinely civil war in less developed nations and that it usually represents a battle for power, means that this is a very real possibility in the U.S.A today. Our power structure has been based on representative government. Those on the left, who would undermine this premise, are fomenting a culture of lawlessness which can erupt at any time and express itself as social chaos and uprising, a la Egypt or Libya. This type of civil unrest bears an eerie resemblance to the OWS movement. Mr. North is lacking in imagination and perspicacity if he cannot conceive of the possibility of civil war based on these very real conditions.

  3. Just consider the sanity of who you are dealing with, and it will give you clues.

  4. websmith44 says:

    There are two sides. Those who want freedom and those who don't.

    You cannot have a FED and have freedom. Do you think the government is going to give you what you want for free? The government will not try to take care of you without taking away your freedom.

    If you want peace, prepare for war.

    I think what we can safely ignore is this article and the guy that wrote it. It doesn't take a rocket scientest to connect the dots with foreign troops suddely doing training from three different countries and in three different parts of the US. That along with DHS ordering 450 million hollow tip bullets and large quantitis of MREs and the construction of several internment camps (which are already recruiting security personnel) to figure out that it is real.
    Remember the Jew obediently climbed into the box cars while being told not to worry, they were only being relocated for their own protection.
    Stock up on bullets and food and when a group wearing blue hats knock on your door, put a bullet in them.

  7. I'd say it's a heads-up warning on a strong possibility. There are too many things going on behind the curtain at the White House by someone who will go to any lengths to get another four years to finish demolishing the US. This is not the America we grew up in, it's a whole new world ruled by an egomanic with a radical agenda. It may just be orchestrated riots and OWS demonstrations, it may be worse. It may be that he will use the power he has bestowed upon himself to start something even worse, you just don't know about what is in Obama and Holder's evil minds. Be prepared….that is the main message.

    I do NOT agree with this "forget it" statement!
    Has anyone picked up on the news from Treasury/Timmy etal, over in CHINA…going to BACK THE IMF MAKING THE CHINA YUAN INTO A WORLD RESERVE CURRENCY???…
    That means "our US DOLLARS" will be "WORTH LESS OVERNIGHT"…along with the EURO, etc…
    Once this has taken place…and OIL SALES can then be "valued" in YUAN…the bottom falls out…
    What part of HYPER INFLATION don't you understand… What you "buy" today for $1, will be valued at $2 or $4 sometime this summer… When you can't even feed your family, because all the stores have been raided by mobs….Who you 'gonna call??

    Just because you don't "agree" with someone – doesn't make them wrong or stupid… in fact, didn't that apply to our Lord too?

    I swore to uphold and defend the Constitution of this United States against all enemies foriegn and Domestic. I am preparing for it now. I am a dis-abled Veteran from Desert Storm and I will Gladly give more of my life for this country to save it.

  10. Jon Shroeder says:

    If DHS is NOT planning for a war, why did they procure 450 million rounds of hollow-point ammo? That's not for sport shooting or hunting!

  11. gary north you are the mole on an otherwise good website..most of us know there will be another revolution..yes guns guts and hopefully glory ..you are the one person on this websight i have ZERO respect for..you must be getting seenial..

  12. Sumerian Man says:

    Well who do ya think we'll call? Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton of course! Duh!

  13. I agree, it seems to me that North's puting too much faith in the government. There are evil forces that desire the destruction of the United States. Obama is representative of one faction. Anyone, that was not intent on the destruction of the U.S. economy, would realize that he had made a mistake and take steps to reverse the damage being done. But obama has doubled down and increased his efforts. Beside there is a lot of evidence that something is going to happen, such as DHS ordering 450 million rounds of 40 cal hollow point and bullet resistent guard shacks among other events. If you know anything about guns and ammo, hollow point ammo is more expensive and you don use it for target practice. While hollow point ammo is against the Geneva Convention and can't be used in war, but the government will do whatever it wants to in the U.S. We are heading for war and whomever denies it is either has his/her head stuck somewhere the sun doesn't shine or they are part of the problem and trying to deceive the public.

  14. Sorry Gary, but you have your head up your arse or obamas'. There is too much evidence against your article to be taken seriously. You are definitely not conservative nor a patriot, it is very possibly that you are part of the enemy, deliberately putting out false info to confuse the people. Whatever crediability you had, you no longer have. Maybe it's time you go back to the Huff-puff post or politico websites.
