My head wants to explode…

stuff that makes AH Trimble's head explodeWhat is the #1 key to overcoming US government tyranny?

The will and ability to resist.

Part of the “will” is knowing how bad it is right now…and how much worse it is going to get real soon…then be willing to do something about it.

Do what? Things like pray for our leaders to honor and listen to God, citizens to to make righteous choices, police officers to be safe and honor the Constitution, criminals to stop and repent, and you get the idea. There is much more people can do to help if they have the “will” to do so.

The “ability” has broad meaning as well…doing such things as help a neighbor with kids who are hungry, skills to help someone fix their car, install an electrical outlet, buy someone’s groceries, go on a mission, fix a driveway, and more…based on ability.

Then you could also learn history and how the Founding Fathers learned how “will and ability” applied to them and how they finally overcame a dictatorial and tyrannical situation.

Do you think the 2024 Presidential election will be open, fair, and honest?

Were the last two? Why would the next one be any different? The FBI deeply influenced the last two elections. A mountain of evidence points to the fact that in 2020 the FBI, in concert with all major online social media companies, prevented Trump from being reelected. In 2016 the FBI even planted spies in the Trump campaign.

I have ZERO confidence that the elections in 2024 will be any different.

Well, not true. At this point I think the 2024 elections will bear no resemblance to fair, honest, and open. Yes, meaning that the situation will be even worse than 2016, 2020, or 2022. As of now I see the 2024 elections will go down in history as thee turning to the end of Constitutionally elected Presidents and the mere installation of authoritarian leaders.

What is the worst problem with government?

Too open-ended. Ask me the problem at each level of government.

      • Local level – Mandated public education. Laws exist in every state to require schooling for our children. The public education industry is controlled almost exclusively by Marxist and Communist leadership and teachers, especially at the college level. All national teacher unions are radical left-wing political organizations. And interestingly enough, John Dewey who brought public education to the US in the 1800’s was a committed Marxist/Communist. The #10 principle in the Communist Manifesto – Free education for all children in government schools…
      • County level – Property taxes. Property taxes prevent a person from actually owning their property. A person may have a deed/title for their property but in actual reality…that is only for the right to rent that property from the county government. Should you fail to pay that property tax the government will seize your property and you will no longer “own it”…hence, you never owned it to begin with, you simply held a government granted ability to rent it from the government. The #1 principle in the Communist Manifesto – Abolition of private property in land and application of all rents of land to public purpose.
      • State level – Lack of courage. By-in-large state’s have lost the will and courage…and now the ability…to be a proper check and balance of the US federal government. And actually most states now fully cooperate with and subjugate themselves to total federal government control…in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers’ intentions.
      • Federal level – There is a two-way tie for this one; 1) Unchecked federal government power, the states can no longer be a proper check & balance, 2) Unfettered commitment to authoritarianism. Communism is consider a near perfect example of authoritarianism. Example: The 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution institutes a progressive income tax. The #2 principle to in the Communist Manifesto – A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

And let me add, if I may, a runner-up to “worst problem” at the federal level…The Federal Reserve. While not a formal part of the US federal government it works in place of the US Treasury as per Congressional legislation. All I have to say about the Federal Reserve is this…The #5 principle in the Communist Manifesto – Centralization of credit in the hands of the state [federal government], by means of a national bank with state [federal government] capital and an exclusive monopoly.

Strange, when you look at what all levels of our government is doing you see a clear trend. But then again, a person must be able to be objective and see things for how they really are vs being sucked into all the government propaganda on how great government is. Most people would rather be blind and ignorant…than informed and free-thinking.

Can you honestly see the adoption of Communist principles at all levels of government? And do you understand that Communism, and its principles, are the rules that authoritarians play by?

You’ve mentioned that there is a difference between the American government and Americans. What is that difference?

The US Federal Government is NOT the American people. The US federal government is corrupt to its very core and has just about completed its goal of cementing in-place an authoritarian regime. If the American people truly understood authoritarianism and its utter evil…Americans would revolt in mass. But there is systematic deceit and deception by the US federal government, including bureaucrats and politicians, with near-total cooperation of the media and the public education system.

When I look at the people in the US government now…bureaucrats and politicians and especially the DOJ and federal law enforcement agencies…I can’t help but think of the term “hubris.”

Hubris means a personality consisting of excessive pride, dangerous overconfidence, and arrogance. Generally accepted as coming from the need for victory at any/all costs. The word comes from an ancient Greek term that translates legally to assault, sexual crimes, theft of public property; and religiously to them it meant a transgression against God. I think that pretty much sums up our US federal government.

The key is to understand their vision/goal of “victory” and its ultimate outcome.

Is the economy really that bad?

Let’s just take a look at one single aspect of the economy…US homeowner wealth loss.

From January 1 – December 31, 2022 US homeowners lost just about $15trillion in wealth. Does that sound like a healthy economy?

Hey, just for the heck of it, let’s then toss in an historically record high national debt of over $31trillion…120% of GDP…very dangerous territory. And just to be clear…there is no realistic way for the USA to pay off the national debt. And worse…not a single politician or any government official has any intention of paying off the national debt. The national debt is intentional…for nefarious purposes.

Oh, US credit card debt…stands at just shy of $1trillion (historical amount)…and increasing at $20billion per month. And the average interest rate is 21.6%…sucking $216,000,000,000 (216 billion, $655 per man, woman, and child in the USA) per year out of American pockets straight to the banks.

Better not forget total American household debt at $17trillion (historical amount) and increasing $1billion per month. Yeah, that is 65% of US GDP.

Number of people falling into “subprime” credit rating is increasing significantly every month…and at recorded highs.

Number of people that are 30 – 60 days delinquent paying their credit card bills…increasing each month.

Auto loans are at a record high…$1.5trillion total. And…people that are 60 days or more delinquent on making their payments in 2022 is up nearly 30% from 2021.

Let’s not forget stocks…The S&P is down almost 20% in 2022. And while homeowners got decimated with $15trillion in loses in 2022, the stock market had $7trillion wiped out.

So now, let me ask you this…Is the economy strong or weak? Or…crashing? Or…crashed?

So now my turn…What does all of this tell you? And what does it prompt you to do?

Note: Why wasn’t this a “FAQ” or such? Well, I am getting tired of what is plainly occurring in the country, and world, and folks generally oblivious to it…and fewer people knowing what to do about it or what to plan for. Makes my head want to explode.

FAQ – 12/05/2022

  • I heard that Edward Snowden just swore allegiance to Russia and now he has a Russian passport. Is that true and why do you think, doesn’t that make him a traitor?

Hell No! It makes him a survivalist. Snowden is a former National Security Agency contractor who exposed the crimes regarding the illegal and immoral U.S. surveillance programs…he exposed one aspect of the evil of the US federal government’s move to form an authoritarian government overseeing a totalitarian state. And the CIA has put out a contract on him…to kill him on sight…because he exposed a whole long list of crimes of government agencies and very highly placed individuals in the US government. He should be viewed as a national hero!

The US revoked his passport and put the kill contract out on him. He fled to Russia to save his life. Russia obviously would take him in. What other choice would Snowden have? He swore that oath of allegiance to Russia to gain a passport, and gain some protection from being killed by the CIA. So where is the problem?

If you worked for the most wicked federal government spy agency, and you became aware of the utter evil (and unconstitutional actions) within that agency, and exposed that evil, and the CIA put out a kill contract on you, and then revoked your passport so you couldn’t try and escape being killed, wouldn’t you turn to a friendly country to save your life?

  • What aren’t you saying AH? You keep pumping out hard facts, you give good advice, you share personal insight, but you are not saying something…what is it?

You really are putting me on the spot…big time. There are times when I freely and comfortably share my opinion, or rather my views, on different subjects. But you are asking a bit much of me. I have a pretty big picture in my head of what is happening. But I can’t quite put it into words I am comfortable with..yet. But I will ask you some leading questions/statements:

      • Notice all the food problems lately? I am talking food prices going sky high, fertilizer shortages, grain shortages, countries forcing farmers out of business, etc. When food is in short supply and/or too expensive to buy what happens? People die.
      • We have another war going on…people are dying.
      • We have a huge energy problem just as winter approaches. When people can’t heat their homes (due to cost or availability)…people will die.
      • Who is getting hit the least with out of control food and energy prices? The rich and the world’s elites.
      • The people originating the anti-farm and anti-fossil fuel agendas are the world’s elites, right?
      • The people buying up the farmland, the energy resources, etc. are the rich elites, right?
      • The world’s elites are authoritarians.
      • The world’s largest authoritarian government is China.
      • China is providing the vast majority 90%+ of all technology and manufacturing to meet the anti-fossil fuel agenda.
      • We know that there is nowhere near enough mineral resources to provide the energy of the “green/renewable” energy agenda.
      • We know that reducing food producing capability coupled with increasing food prices and linked with increasing world population will result in what?

So, if you were to connect all the dots what would you say I am not saying?

And then again…you might want to read tomorrow’s post as well. You might find it interesting.

FAQ – 10/28/2022

  • Do you think there is a civil war coming? The media has been talking about it a lot lately.

Yes, without a doubt. The only exception to that “yes” would be if Jesus the Christ Himself comes again and intervenes.

We are simply too divided and polarized as a country…our values are beyond reconciliation. There is about 1/2 of the country who willingly adopt dark and evil values compared to all others.

A recent article on that subject stated as the #1 challenge to not having a civil war is…

“Stop to Reset: Destabilizing times like ours can be fertile ground for changing our more entrenched patterns—but only if we take advantage of them by committing to a significant reset. That is, by pausing sufficiently to be reflective and intentional about the next path we choose.”

Did you notice the terminology, the specific term, “reset” was used. And that is exactly what the elites want…a “reset.” They want us in such a condition that we will agree to, beg for, even demand, a change in our awful condition. And there are lots of folks in power that have the perfect picture for a reset…and it ain’t anything like a Constitutional Republic!

An ill-conceived, ill-planned, ill-timed, ill-executed civil war of restoration would involve brutal violence the likes we’ve never seen. But I am sure that a civil war is coming…its exact nature, form, and timing is still hidden.

  • How in the world do we fix our country?

The answer could be extremely simple, something along the lines of…

      • Restore the original Constitution and the Bill of Rights in their entirety; and transition the existing US federal government into compliance within a 2-year period.
      • Nullify all Constitutional Amendments beyond the 10th (11th – 27th).
      • For a 28th Amendment – For clarity revise wording of the 14th Amendment regarding defining citizenship, the Privileges or Immunities Clause, the Due Process Clause, and the Equal Protection Clause.
      • For the 29th Amendment – Contains equal rights and protections that essentially states that all US citizens have equal rights and no person’s rights shall infringe upon another person’s rights.
      • For the 30th Amendment – Term limits for elected offices; 1) President = two 4-year terms, 2) Senators = one 6-year term, 3) Representatives = three 2-year terms.
      • For the 31st Amendment – Clarify and use the wording of the current 25th Amendment.
      • For the 32nd Amendment – All legislation that increase taxes, fees, etc. is required to be passed in a general election by a 66% majority of voting US citizens. Also, requires any salary increase for any elected official (President, Vice-President, Congressman, etc.) to be passed in a general election by a 66% majority of voting US citizens. Forbids any elected official or any federal employee to trade directly in any financial market; investments must be held in a blind trust.
      • For the 33rd Amendment – All federal government operations and business transactions are 100% transparent and made available online within 72-hours of those operations/business is conducted. That includes no “secret” meetings, hearing, etc. are to be conducted. All emails and text messages are included in this Amendment.
      • For the 34th Amendment – All federal lands will be transferred in back into private ownership hands with the exception of military bases; 1) respective states will take possession of all national monuments and parks within 90-days, 2) all other federal lands, excepting military bases, will be placed in a lottery system with all valid US citizens over the age of 18 automatically entered, the lands will be dispersed accordingly.

I said the answer was simple…the adoption of the answer 100% impossible…implementation 110% impossible. Besides all of the above was just blabbering on my part.

We are stuck on a path of national destruction.

  • You have written a lot about the CIA and FBI over the years. You have nailed it over and over again. For a long time you were a lone voice exposing their sh*t. Are you worried about what the goons could do to you?

What…Am I going to say “no” in some macho display of bravado? Of course I am worried.

And yes, I am also worried about what they might do to my wife, my kids, and my grand-kids. I worry about what they can do, and currently do, to anyone and everyone in the United States. They are an unchecked and uncontrolled force of evil in the US. No one can reign them in, they work for a far more powerful force than the US government. They can terrorize at will, they can abduct at will, they can torture at will, they have proven time and time again that they can even kill at will. The only thing I have going for me is my low-profile presence online. While I write about them…I imagine they aren’t as concerned about me as much as folks such as James Gordon Meek, the reporter that the FBI/CIA disappeared in April 2022. And right now the FBI has been concentrating on persecuting and terrorizing pro-life activists…including 87-year old women. But, who knows…maybe one day my time will come. If it does…it does…and I will deal with it when that day comes, if it does. Don’t forget, I have already been interrogated three times by federal agents and had to deal with US District Attorneys for almost 6 months at one point several years ago. The shine is off those experiences…and besides, I am a crotchety old man now.

FAQ – 10/26/2022

  • I think if Republicans win both the House & Senate we can avoid a recession. Do you agree?

No. Among other things, Republicans are just as bad at government spending as Democrats. But most of all…all the factors are already in-place for a deepening recession in 2023…or worse. (Notice I said a “deepening recession”…I believe we are already in a recession.) Moving on…Republicans wouldn’t be seated until January 2023 when the new Congressional session starts. They wouldn’t have time to take effective action to forestall a worsening, or reverse the existing, recession. They might, although I doubt it, take actions that could lessen the recession effects late in 2023 but I don’t see that happening either. And they could, although I doubt it, pass legislation that could truly help the country from an economic perspective. But, Biden could simply veto any such actions and the Republicans don’t have the votes for an override. Remember, the last time that we had a balanced budget was under President Clinton (D) and a Republican controlled Congress. But Biden is no Clinton and our current batch of Republicans are no 1990’s Republicans. And finally…let me beat you up with this one…you are assuming that Republicans actually want to stop an economic collapse that leads to authoritarianism.

Think about what JPMorgan’s president and COO, Daniel Pinto, said on Monday (10/24), “U.S. consumers may have to cope with a recession if they want inflation to finally go away.” Nice! But we know that recessions hit the bottom 90% of income earners (all but the rich) worse. So the rich guy is telling us to just grin and bear it. See how well treated we are by the elites…the banking elites that run the Federal Reserve.

  • What’s the number one thing I can do right this minute, today, to save the country?


  • What do you think about the Oath Keepers now?

They went off the rails…like so many, too many, almost all, prepper groups do. They listened too much to Trump, took him too literally, thought this (1/6) was “it”, the revolution, and I think they got compromised as well. I think it would be interesting and very telling to see how many FBI agents and/or informants were/are in the organization and what role they had/have in its operations.

  • What’s the biggest problems preppers face today?

Preppers. Yeah, sorry, lame. There are a whole bunch of crazies in the prepper world right now…and that is hurting the community and doing far more damage than Biden or the liberals or Congress or the FBI or anyone else. When preppers start going off into the “weird world” crap it gets people distracted…or worse. There is plenty to do, plenty to watch, plenty to be cautious of…we don’t need the BS weirdo junk being thrown into the mix. Everything from folks with “special” spiritual knowledge to the revival of “pizzgate” to world dominating elitist cabal drinking children’s blood. We need to concentrate on the basics, get all that taken care of, and then serve others. Forget the nonsense and get the weirdos out of our lives..especially QAnon!

FAQ – 9/22/2022

  • Do you want to see Trump on trial?

Well, yes and no. If he is remotely guilty of what they have said he is…then put him on trial and let a jury of his peers decide his fate. And “no” I don’t think he should go on trial for the apparent politics only vendetta against him. Then again, if he was put on trial then maybe some of the FBI/DOJ criminal activity and BS would come to light so all of America could know who they really are and what they are really doing.

  • How do you make money off the site? I am trying to find a way to help but can’t.

Oh yeah!!!  Ah, wait…did you say money or profit? There is no profit to running this website. In the early years I lost about $20,000 – $30,000 on testing and reviewing equipment and gear. Yeah I know, not a good business model. Now, and for the last couple of years I am making money. I make about $1.75 per month from Amazon links, I make about $2.00 every third month from online book sales. And that is about it. Now for the good part…I spend about $150 per year paying the host (WordPress) and for the privilege of owning the website name. However, this last month I made almost $20 because someone bought one of the air conditioners I mentioned and linked to on Amazon in the article…along with an above normal amount of other purchases through site links to Amazon. My wife isn’t real happy with me over the whole thing but she supports the effort. I have actually had a few folks want to donate money for/through the site but I feel like that would be begging…and that doesn’t sit well with me. I could take on advertisers…but then that make me like most other prepper websites. And I refuse to make it a subscription website because I think people need information more than I need money.

  • You explain stuff in a good way, could you do a series on solar power?

I have actually been thinking about doing a series on the basics of solar power. But, it would take time and right now I am swamped getting the “glamstead” ready for the apocalypse. But let’s try a survey and see what the interest is.



  • Why didn’t you write about the rail strike and it could have crashed the country?

I didn’t think it had a remote chance of it happening. I would have put it at a 5% probability. Biden wouldn’t have allowed it so close to the mid-terms. Or rather…Biden’s controller/handler wouldn’t have allowed it to happen because it would have meant a sure loss for control of Congress. Yeah, that means I saw the strike potential as “static” and I am trying to reduce all that crap as much as possible.

FAQ – 9/8/2022

  • Why didn’t you comment on Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan and her nearly starting a war?

What was there to talk about? No, seriously? When you understand the back stories, these things become real clear. And I never thought it would start a war no matter who said what. IMO the reason for her visit to Taiwan and slapping China in the face were two-fold; 1) slap Biden in the face and let him know that she is powerful, at least as powerful as Biden, 2) Pelosi’s son has close ties to the chip industry, as well as other financial interests, in Taiwan. In other words, he is on the take from them…to the tune of millions and millions of dollars. Paul Jr is to Nancy Pelosi (the Pelosi Crime Family) what Hunter is to Joe Biden (the Biden Crime Family). With the movement of chip manufacturing to the USA by Taiwan manufacturers it was important that Nancy and Paul Jr meet with, and show support for, the Taiwanese companies and reassert their “business” partnership.

So why the China vs Taiwan slap and the power struggle? Again, the back story tells it all. The Biden Crime Family has Hunter as the point of contact with China. And Hunter is on the take for millions and millions of dollars from Chinese companies, which means the Chinese Communist Party. It is all well documented that Pelosi has close economic ties with Taiwan and that Biden has close economic ties with China. So this Pelosi trip was all about money and power. Two crime families fighting for power over the other and reassuring their paymasters/partners that all is well. So what else is new about this? And so, why talk about it?

And since this was all about a US power struggle and Taiwan and China making money…well, war was not going to break out over this trip. It would cost both Taiwan and China too much money.

  • Why no comment on Hawaii and their new 25% tax on combustion engine vehicles?

Because it is stupid beyond belief and it not only can’t happen, it won’t happen. Hawaii can’t generate enough power to charge all those new electric vehicles. And on top of that…Hawaii’s GDP is $73billion and less than $60,000 per capita. The new tax would be unaffordable for the average citizen, let alone those lower on the economic scale. And have you looked at Hawaii’s power grid lately? Yeah, they do not have, and will not have, the generating capability to charge an EV fleet that they want.

FAQ – 9/6/2022

  • You aren’t talking about war with China, why? Don’t you feel it is important?

Nope, not important. First off, it more than likely won’t happen anytime soon and China can’t even begin to invade the US…it is absolutely impossible, for the foreseeable future (i.e. 20 – 40 years), if at all. Second, China would lose huge amounts of money due to loss of trade with the US. And China needs that money to continue to pay for their influence around the world. Thirdly, I have no control over that situation…so why should I obsess over it or even talk about it to any notable degree? It either happens or not. And if it does, I am as prepared for that scenario as any other. Think of it this way…spending a lot of, or any time, thinking about war with China would be all “static”…relatively worthless effort and information…possibly leading to Cognitive Fatigue on my part.

So I prefer to spend my time on far, far more productive issues and concerns…such as our garden for next year, expanding my solar generating capability for our system, expanding my strawberry patch, and ordering my blackberry and raspberry bushes.

Bottom line…how do you want to spend your time…wasting it on something that has a low probability of occurrence or something that will feed your family or power your home? Yeah, get rid of the static in your life…you will be far more productive and happier.

  • What is your opinion on Trump and his claim to the Presidency or a special election?

I assume you are referring to the statement made by Trump late last month…

“FBI BURIED THE HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP STORY BEFORE THE ELECTION knowing that, if they didn’t, ‘Trump would have easily won the 2020 Presidential Election.’ This is massive FRAUD & ELECTION INTERFERENCE at a level never seen before in our Country.” 

“REMEDY: Declare the rightful winner or, and this would be the minimal solution, declare the 2020 Election irreparably compromised and have a new Election, immediately!”

If you are referring to this Trump statement, and I believe that you are, I have clear opinions on the statement:

1) The first part is 100% correct and accurate…it has been proven to be factual as to the fraud that was committed and I believe it to be accurate that Trump would have been elected. And of course it was fraud and interference never before seen in our country (that we know of)…and obviously criminal. And it was the FBI and DOJ that perpetrated this fraud/crime proving that the FBI & DOJ should never, ever be trusted. FYI…there is no authorization in the Constitution for the FBI to even exist. Yeah, I am thinking the Founding Fathers knew what would come from such an armed powerful organization…and that’s exactly why it is not authorized in the Constitution.

2) Trump was WAY out of line is the “remedy” part. It is simple…there is no provision of any kind, anywhere in the US Constitution for what he is calling for. So Trump is demanding something be done that is completely unconstitutional. And who exactly thinks that his demand is acceptable? The US Constitution was followed for the entire election process, Biden was sworn in, and that is it. If Trump thinks it was wrong the way things went…then run again and win again…or he should shut the hell up. Trump did the right thing and challenged the election in the courts…and he didn’t win a single case that he and his team brought…so he needs to get over it.

Here is the truly important part…what exactly do you think of Trump for him suggesting that the US Constitution be ignored and his demands be met? Politics over principles…eh?

3) If Trump’s “remedies” were followed through on…it would be the end of the Constitutional Republic as established by our Founding Fathers. See, if Trump succeeded with these unconstitutional actions…then any future presidential loser could/would simply do the same and seek to be “installed” as president. Hence, the electoral process would be meaningless…and the Constitution even less so.

Brand new to prepping…where do I start?

  • I found your site and love it. I am brand new to prepping and have basically nothing ready for anything. Where do I start? (Tim)

First off…Welcome! Glad to have you aboard even if you are a little late to the party 😉

OK, now…”Where to start?

I will believe you when you say you are “brand new”…so let me start you at the very beginning.

Full disclosure: some folks have different opinions than I do…but most of them don’t have the training, skills, or experience that I do and they don’t have an organized approach to learning the necessary and required prepping knowledge. So, I am methodical, organized, and deliberate in my approach learned over the better part of 4 decades of professional emergency management Prepper Geek with equipment and gearexperience and nearly 50 years of prepping.

First four steps are learning steps, learning the principles of preparedness. This prevents a haphazard, disorganized approach to prepping. It also ensures you more fully avoid HUGE mistakes that many folks make as they prepare. Each step, except the first, will have articles…read them all before moving on. Watch for the “next” button at the bottom of articles. Also, it might be a good idea with you read the “Related Articles” in each posting as well before coming back to the next step.

#1 – Who are you? That is a purely rhetorical question. Do you know yourself, do you have principles, ethics, morals, and do you have foundational beliefs? Why and how do you want to survive emergencies, disasters, and grid-down events? If not, solidify those first. I suggest you write them down.

#2 – Learn Risk Identification and Mitigation.

# 3 – Learn the 7 Common Risks/Threats to all emergencies, disasters, and grid-down. Then learn how to “layer” to mitigate those threats.

#4 – Make a plan to start prepping.

This is your plan! It needs to be singular to you and your family. Lay it out any way you want…but I suggest you write it down. And I insist that it be based on “layering”…or you won’t be a successful as you could have been. You will have wasted your time, money, and resources if you don’t layer.

Next comes the actual prepping Step #5

Now start accomplishing your plan. You can multi-task as you go. Meaning, you can buy a pistol at the same time you are buying food, OTC medicines, and ammo…while you identify a potential bugout location and start storing water correctly.

Layering is vitally important. Example: You start storing water before you have a way to filter/purify it. A problem develops and water shuts off. You may have 100’s of gallons of water stored but not be 100% sure if it is safe to drink and no way to filter/purify it. But, if you have correctly layered then you have a filter/purifier and can make virtually any water safe to drink.

Let me be more clear…each of the 7 Common Risks/Threats have specific layers to them. Each layer is unambiguous in what needs to be done. Work from the inside out using each layer as a “step to take”.

IMPORTANT – while carrying out the practical aspects of prepping (i.e. acquisition of resources) you also need to learn how to set priorities and also learn what Situational Awareness is. You do that by reading and studying SA & LIPS while carrying out your new plan.

Once you have read those articles and you are working your plan of acquiring and organizing your 7 Common Risks/Threats mitigation resources you could start testing yourself…and learning more along the way by reading through the series “Days of September – 9/1/2019 Opening<click here>

To help you out…while you get started on learning the “principles” why don’t you go to your pantry, find the 10 foods that you use the most, then go buy 2 cans of each, continue to do so for the next 3 weeks. That will be some immediate gratification and get/keep you motivated to keep going.

So why do I have you learn the “principles” first? Why do all that reading? Why not just get started and do stuff?

Well, that would make you like many, maybe most, other preppers that are inexperienced, unorganized, untrained, unskilled, and chaotically going about preparing…or rather, thinking they are preparing. To be truly successful at prepping it is vitally important that you understand the big picture, then important bit and pieces of that big picture before you start spending your hard earned money and time.

I will send you my personal email, let me know how you are doing…or if you have any questions. I would love to hear from you and lend a hand if I can.

Now, a serious message from me to you…You are late to the party, meaning you are behind the curve on preparing. But, you are not too late…not too late at all. But you have to get moving and get stuff done…don’t delay or procrastinate. As I said in my article “Intensify” we have fallen as a country…it’s over. I lay out the case clearly in my article “The Fall of the U.S. Empire“. Don’t get me wrong…our country has not ceased to exist…and our people won’t…and the Constitution will continue to be a guiding document for those dedicated to the principle of a Constitutional Republic.

The Roman Empire didn’t simply vanish after its fall…it degraded and then over the course of some 1600 years it morphed into present day Italy, the socialist democracy it is today. Same with the British Empire…it too didn’t simply vanish…it shrank to a fraction of the size it once was and then became the socialist democracy it is today (i.e. Britain, England).

The USA will follow, is following, the same path as all empires…unless the globalists make their final move. So you have time to do a lot of prepping…probably more time than you think…so no need to panic. But time is of the essence. There are two major resources at your disposal; 1) time, 2) money. If you have enough money you can go do everything you need to do in a short period of time. If you are not wealthy then you will have to use your time wisely in acquiring that which you decide you need…and it will take longer to adequately prepare.

A final thought for now…Do you plan to shelter in-place or bug-out? The answer to that question will really make a difference on how you prepare and for what. Answer that question soon, very soon. Here are some articles that might help you decide that answer:

Try to avoid stupid mistakes…

Can you please explain our inflation problem?

  • Can you please explain our inflation problem?

Sure! Oh wait, Crazy Joe Biden says our economy is the strongest since t-rex roamed the planet. Yeah, well, anyone with even a molecule of brain knows we have serious problems with the economy, and inflation is just one aspect of it.

Inflation is caused by a number of different factors; one being supply and/or demand, another cause is the printing of fiat currency, then there is modern monetary policy (MMP), and of course government spending just to name the most common causes. So we know that the US government has done the following:

  • Screwed with supply and demand of fossil fuels which drives the vast majority of the economy…so those prices rise and ripple out to the cost of everything else.
  • Printing 10’s of trillions of dollars via the Federal Reserve making massive amounts of currency available that has no value backing to it whatsoever.
  • Embraced every aspect of MMP totally for the last 70 years, especially the last 20 years. And that has debauched (debased, ruined, degraded) the US dollar.
  • And of course we all know that for 20 years the US government, led by all of the last four presidents, has spent money like a drunken sailor. (My apologies to drunken sailors.)

So the US government, and both political parties, are 100% responsible for the inflation that is destroying America even as you read this post. ALL of the last 4 presidents (Biden, Trump, Obama, Bush) have contributed to the inflation problem today through budget deficits and increasing the national debt. Obviously some more than others

But I propose that you may not be asking the right question. Try this…

Why are we having the inflation problem that exists today?

Now there is the question that makes sense to me! And I hope that I can answer your question by addressing mine. But let’s start at the beginning and connect the dots…

In America the “bourgeoisie” is middle class, they are the property owners, small and medium sized business owners, professionals, and the glue that holds many societies together. In America, at least in days gone past, they were the ones who kept communities alive and thriving, they were the church goers, they were the good neighbors, they were the volunteer firefighters, they were the good folks to have around for over 200 years.

Karl Marx…Satan’s tool if there ever was one, decided to demonize the bourgeoisie in Europe about 150 years ago…big time…calling them oppressors of the working people, and worse. Basically to Marx, the bourgeoisie was the cause of all problems political, social, and moral. Then a student of Marx, Vladimir Lenin, comes along and decides that for Communism to succeed and for a true totalitarian state to be implemented the bourgeoisie must be eliminated. And of course the rapid Communist leader and mass murderer knew how to handle that…

MESSAGE: So to kill a country’s middle-class…high taxes and high inflation.

MESSAGE: To kill a Constitutional Republic that is based on free-market capitalism…you kill the currency.

So let’s think about this, what has been happening to America’s middle-class?

MESSAGE: The US middle-class has been disappearing for over 50 years.

MESSAGE: The US rich get richer and richer.

MESSAGE: And the super rich…get even richer!

Now think for just a minute of what is being accomplished after ALL the inflationary periods and recessions…just look at history.

MESSAGE: The rich somehow manage to acquire more wealth and high incomes after all recessions. And the wealth and income increases come at the expense of middle and lower income folks.

Bottom Line –
  • America’s upper-income, especially the super-rich, have steadily been getting richer and richer…and have seen significant spikes in income and wealth growth after recessions.
  • America’s middle-class (the bourgeoisie) has steadily disappeared over the last 50+ years.
  • The US Government controls both tax policy through the US Congress and inflation through the Federal Reserve.
  • Politicians from both parties have controlled the US government over the last 50+ years.
  • Presidents from both parties have appointed the Federal Reserve Chairman over the last 50+ years.

But one last thought…About 100 years ago John Maynard Keynes was a British economist that developed Keynesian Economics. His idea was government must intervene in and control the economy…because the government knows best. That theory drives today’s Democrat Party, all Progressives, and all authoritarians. And, basically it fits exactly into the implementation of fascism perfectly.

So “why” do we have the inflation problems of today?

Well pretty simple actually, the policies of the US government for the last 130 years…and specifically for the last 20 years.

Now you know the “why”…just one more way that the authoritarians are transitioning America into your worst nightmare.

And if you want my opinion –

  • The US government has debased and continues to debase the US currency.
  • The US government is 100% responsible for inflation.
  • The US government has completely embraced Keynesian Economics.
  • The US government has all but eliminated the US middle-class.
  • The US government is following the ideology of both Marx and Lenin.
  • Authoritarians run the US government.
  • Both major US political parties are run by, controlled by, are full of, authoritarians.
  • And sadly…US citizens keep repeating themselves in one election, after another election, after another election. The purest definition of insanity…national insanity…national suicide.

FAQ – 12/13/2021

  • How bad do you think the energy crisis is right now and how bad will it get?

Well, there are two ways I look at it…internal/external, and the outcome.

Internally, it is the plan and goal of the Democrats to destroy the fossil fuel industry in the US. It became widely known public knowledge back in 2008 when Obama made the statement that the US government will bankrupt coal plants. That made it pretty obvious. Biden made a number of near fatal blows since he took office…nearly doubling the price of fuel. And his radical plan is $6.00 per gallon by the end of his presidency. And heating fuel for this winter is at historic highs. All of which is part of their plan. So, the energy crisis that we are suffering under is purely a plan/goal of the Democrats. Yes, part of that plan is economic hardship on middle and lower income Americans while the rich are relatively unaffected.

Externally, there are a number of factors to look at. You have to understand that Russia has Europe under its thumb when it comes to oil and natural gas. Putin with a single decision could freeze Europe into submission. And why do you think he is making his move against the Ukraine and making it during the winter? Yup, the oil & gas industry and the power it gives him.

And it is part of Biden’s plan to weaken the US by making it once again dependent on external sources of crude oil. Specifically Biden is cooperating with the OPEC countries to increase their wealth, power, and influence in the world…at USA’s expense. Remember, it was Obama/Biden that entered into the infamous nuclear deal with Iran…giving them nuclear weapons and a planeload of cash in the billions of dollars. It is obvious to all the Biden is very pro-OPEC and all things foreign oil.

Back in late October there was an energy meeting with a number of high-profile experts speaking. One stated that based on Biden’s moves and the green enviro-Nazi agenda there will be a significant shortage of energy in the world. Another expert warned that oil could easily hit $100 per barrel near-term, then probably higher, potentially much higher. They all said categorically…we will not go to sleep in a brown world, then miraculously wake up in a green world, it simply won’t and can’t happen.

Let’s talk coal for a minute…on January 1st of this year the price of coal was $76 per ton, it went as high as $270 per ton, now rests at $165 per ton. That is a 117% increase in the price of coal in less than a year. But, let’s back up a minute to the Biden/Harris election in 2020. Just before it was known that Biden/Harris won election the price of coal was $55 per ton. So the price of coal as TRIPLED since the radical leftists took the Whitehouse. And what does that mean to US citizens? Higher energy prices across the board, higher transportation prices, and higher utility prices. The Progressives’ dream come true!

For now, let’s stick with the price of coal for 2021…$76 – $270 per ton price swing. That represents a 255% swing in the price of coal. Why do you think there was that much volatility? Yup, FEAR!! Buyers/Sellers of coal fearing what the radical leftists will do next to destroy the fossil fuel industry.

Outcome – Make no doubt about it, don’t get confused…when the radicals push their green agenda they want to destroy the fossil fuel industry…and they know 100%, without any doubt, it will cause significant unemployment and underemployment, kill hundreds of related businesses, destroy families and towns, and actually kill people (more on that at a later date). They know that…and it is perfectly acceptable to them…it is exactly what they want.

The most sobering prediction as energy prices continue to soar, it will inordinately adversely affect developing countries around the world and lower & middle income families here in the US. And that affect is highly likely to create social within countries but also unrest between countries around the world. That is not only my opinion…it was a statement of fact at that same energy conference mentioned earlier.

Strangely, not only is that plan/goal of the US Democrats…it is the goal of all those who wish an increase in authoritarian states around the world…and that includes all Democrats in the US and most US Republicans as well.

The current energy crisis and the longer-term green agenda plans are all well-coordinated for one particular goal…let the authoritarians offer a solution to crisis, violence, unrest, and other energy related problems across the globe. When you see that pro-authoritarian scheme, when you understand that plan/goal, then the energy crisis we are in and the broader green agenda, both become much, much easier to understand.

So the energy crisis is bad now, will get worse as time goes on, and will result in chaos and crisis…as planned. It is not the crisis that is what worries me so much…it is the solution to the chaos that gives me some sleepless nights.
