The Importance of October 17

The Common Sense Show – by Dave Hodges

The internet chatter which states that Obama is going to get Congress to impose a 1% transaction tax is going viral on the internet. When this news arrives in your email box, delete this erroneous email the same as you would any other spam.  The email would have you believe that while you were sleeping, the government planned to introduce a 1% transaction tax which would tax every single transaction in the United States from direct deposit to ATM withdrawals to social security payments. The bill, labeled HR 4646 did indeed propose to impose this requirement upon all financial transactions in the United States. The fact of the matter is that this bill was proposed in 2010 and it died in committee without ever being voted on. This concept was resurrected in 2011 and it, too, died in committee without ever being voted on.  

It is likely that this internet urban legend was planted to take attention away from what is really going on and divert America’s attention away from some very real potential dates with disaster. Again, I repeat that the administration’s intent to impose a 1% at this time, is not true! However, what is true is the fact that there is much more tyranny being planned for the American people that is largely flying under the radar.

The Significance of October 16

October 17 is the first date we need to be concerned about with regard to the potential for a false flag.

Up until now, October 16th, the government “shutdown” has only been an exercise in imposing emotional pain on the American people from the shutting down of the national parks to the closing of the war memorials to the beta test of shutting off EBT cards from welfare recipients in their attempts to purchase of food.

I think it is very likely that the EBT card fiasco was a mini-false flag event designed to test the theory that the “Obama phone” crowd would riot on the third day without access to government supplied food. Based upon the results of the volatility of the crowds on day one, the DHS received their answer. Subsequently, I view the EBT care fiasco as a designed test. However, what looms tomorrow, the October 17th deadline for reaching a consensus on a federal budget, if an agreement is not reached, the government is risking imminent default on the government’s loans.

On October 15th, Fitch Ratings announced it was accelerating its timetable for a potential U.S. credit rating downgrade, citing the brinksmanship in Washington. Fitch would become the second credit rating firm to downgrade the debt of the United States. The impact of such an action cannot be overstated and will surely send major ripples across the vast domains of America’s financial empire. Loan liquidity and the ability to collateralize any debt will be greatly impacted. Isn’t it interesting that one of the three major credit rating agencies would be so quick to act in such a premature manner as to downgrade the US credit rating before the default? What do the Fitch Ratings people know that the rest of us do not know and why is this looming event not being reported in the MSM?

The Perfect Storm of October 17

With the government shutdown scheduled to occur tomorrow. It has been threatened that such developments such as social security checks might not arrive, Medicare and Medicaid may not be honored.  Coincidentally, two DHS/FEMA disaster drills are scheduled to take place both today and tomorrow. As  I have previously reported, the two drills are called the  “Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drill” and the “Quantum Dawn 2 Cyber Attack Bank Drill“, and are now set to occur! According to the Center for Disaster Preparedness press releases related to these two new drills, the banks electronic systems will be under a simulated attack. In these drills, 1,000 banks are participating as well as several hundred corporations and all 50 governors. This is a major event and the MSM is strangely quiet. The so-called simulated attacks will come from “imaginary” hackers, organized crime elements and foreign national sponsored terrorism.

If something were to go wrong with either of these two drills, you might not be able to use your debit card to purchase gas, welfare recipients might not be able to use their EBT cards and of course, you would not be able to access your bank account.

If this is not the breeding ground for a potential false flag attack, I do not know what is. The false flag potential for today and tomorrow is just as great as the Grid Ex II drill blackout drill planned for November 13th.

Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction

blackout 3Speaking of November 13th and the Grid Ex II drill, I find it a little more than interesting that the media is beginning to show interest in the potential outcome of the Grid Ex II potential catastrophe. On October 27, the National Geographic Channel is sponsoring a two hour docudrama based upon the notion that the lights will go out for 10 days. And last night, I caught a prepper show on the A&E Network in which a rural based “life coach” was prepping in anticipation of an economic collapse and a power grid shutdown. Why all the sudden interest in power grid take downs?

The Plan B Hypothesis

Based upon the premise that when light is shined upon problem, the rats scurry for cover. I know that the alternative media pushed back the planned attack upon Syria because of the duplicity that was exposed. This occurrence and the subsequent claim to victory by the alternative, truth media, did not go unnoticed by John B. Wells and Coast to Coast AM, as three Fridays ago, the Hagmann and Hagmann report and my show were mentioned on Coast to Coast AM, which noted that the rest of the alternative media served as a catalyst in stopping the coming war in Syria. This sent despots like McCain running for cover while licking their wounds. Exposure can absolutely change the outcome of planned events.

Along these same lines, I think it is possible that the effectiveness of the Grid Ex II drill as a false flag attack may be compromised because of all the attention paid to the event. This is why contingency plans are created.

There is a reason why the following events happened and I think their interconnections cannot be ignored:

nuclear bomb1. Alex Jones reports that a nuclear bomb has gone missing from its West Texas base.

2. On the same day, Senator Lindsey Graham states that if we do not attack Syria that a nuclear device will be detonated in Charleston Harbor.

3. Reportedly, a nuclear bomb was “ditched” in the ocean off of the coast of Charleston without exploding. Maybe this event happened and maybe it did not, but what is curious is that the original link to the story being run out of Europe is now a dead link after only 24 hours.

4. Obama fires the two commanders running our nuclear arsenal. One general was personally fired by Obama for using counterfeit poker chips. Are you kidding me? Obama has time to worry about counterfeit poker chips? Was Charleston to be the site of a nuclear detonation while the country became fixated on the Grid Ex II? All signs point in this direction.


The conclusion to this story is that there is no conclusion. Between September 25th to November 13th, there were/are an unprecedented 10 disaster drills planned for by FEMA/DHS and coordinated through the Center for Disaster Preparedness.

Obama needs a game-changing event. He has fired 16 Navy commanders this year  to go along with the multitude of generals he has dismissed. He apparently feels that he is facing a military coup and I think he would be correct. This past May, Obama was attacked by the MSM through the revelation of no less than five Watergate scandals designed to discredit Obama and threaten his presidency. Obama is a dangerous man and is seeking any way possible to stay in office. Remember this scenario, false flag, declaration of martial law and World War III. This is the likely order of events that I see coming.

Nobody can say with certainly that a false flag will come from one these events, but historically, this has been the undeniable pattern when we consider 9/11, 7/7 bombings and the Boston Marathon in which a drill of similar nature to be carried out and the drill was interrupted by a terror attack of the same nature being practiced for. Many of us have the globalist playbook and can begin to make some predictions which have a strong likelihood of being accurate.

The corporate controlled media is even dropping strong hints that something big is coming. And don’t you feel it to? I hope all of you are prepared with food, water and guns. In the face of the abject evil we are facing, I hope for the best for the welfare of all of our families.

One thing is certain, the more we speak of these events, the less likely we are to be victims of these events.
