Sign of the Times: Riot Control Gear Sales Are Soaring Globally


By Joshua Krause

If you pay attention to the news at all, it probably seems like the world has been fraying at the edges lately. In South America, Brazil’s economy is crumbling and Venezuela is on the verge of collapse. In the United States, riots are expected at political conventions. In Europe, the Brexit vote is threatening to tear apart the EU and the UK.

And all over the world, people are becoming sick and tired of the status quo. In nearly every single country, people are losing their faith in major institutions and, in increasing numbers, they are losing their trust in the financial and political elitists who run those institutions.

Obviously, this state of affairs can’t continue indefinitely. There is a flashpoint somewhere down the road, when the people of the world reach their breaking point, and the elitists who run their societies will do everything they can to hold onto their power. It’s going to be ugly, and it’s going to be global in scope.

The governments of the world clearly know what’s coming. That’s why they’re stocking up on riot gear at an unprecedented rate. We know this because globally, sales of riot gear are rapidly growing.

Over the next five years, the market for crowd control tools is expected to boom, from $9.05 billion in 2016 to some $11.78 billion by 2021, at a rate of 5.4%, according to RNR Market Research.

Currently, the market is dominated by North American companies, due to technological advancement and growing fears of terrorism and civil unrest. The report forecasts, however, that over the coming years, Asian-Pacific and Middle Eastern markets will grow at the highest rate. Current popular products for handling unrest without inflicting lethal harm include offensive and defensive weapons, electromagnetic and sonic weapons, kinetic impact weapons, chemical agents, and more.

Of the weaponry available on the market, directed energy weapons (a subset of offensive weapons) is projected to grow at the highest rate, including what are termed active denial systems (ADS) or “pain rays.”

And that’s not all. Wealthy Americans from Chicago to the Silicon Valley are buying rural compounds that they can escape to if civil unrest occurs. Companies that produce luxury bomb shelters are seeing widespread interest, and the wealthy who are still living in major cities are building panic rooms in their luxury apartments.

Clearly, the people who are in the know are getting ready for something big. The elitists who run the governments of the world are hunkering down. They’re preparing their police forces to deal with widespread civil unrest, and they preparing to protect themselves as well. The only question that remains is, are you ready?

    “The soul must be instructed and trained with extreme care. The house must be purified, the evil mind cleaned from evil thoughts, to send out pure, wholesome, healthful vibrations, and these thought vibrations will lift the soul up where the world is cleaner and better to live in. The mind, which is the electrical unit of the soul, sends out the very substance that nourishes or destroys both body and soul. Hence, the mind is the beginning, the first floor to cleanse of all its rubbish.”

    Isaiah 13:19
    Babylon, the jewel of kingdoms,
    the pride and glory of the Babylonians, will be overthrown by God
    like Sodom and Gomorrah.
    Babylon is a mystical term which symbolizes the stronghold of materialism.
