"Are You Ready for The Second American Civil War?": Tim Pool pod cast from this summer

On July 1, 2018 Tim Pool (Timcast) made a strong podcast, an hour long,  Are You Ready for the Second American Civil War?” with two friends, one of them named “Emily” and “Reactor”.

Tim outlines some scenarios, based on numbers of violent protesters, where violent uncontrollable insurgencies within the US could evolve, especially from the extreme left.

The idea is suggested that some day historians may suggest that the Second American Civil War started with Charlottesville.

He also suggests that a massive ground invasion of the US from enemy insurgents is conceivable.

The panelists speculate about the Supreme Court and the possible overturning of Roe v Wade before Kennedy resigned and Kavanaugh was appointed. Pool makes the point that survival supplies could be a good business idea now (along with Nicholas Taleb's "Skin in the Game" theory), but it's based more on the idea of out of control political violence than foreign (North Korean) EMP. 

Tim mentions a March 2018 issue by Chris Hedges in Common Dreams, "The Coming Collapse".  The loss of the dollar as a reserve currency is mentioned, but Porter Stansberry has preached that for years (as does Ron Paul).

Pool made an interesting progression in his history:  from Dred Scott to Harper's Ferry (1859, one of my favorites spots) to Fort Sumter.  Charlottesville isn't quite in that sequence yet.
