Ginsburg Dead! & Armed Rebellion Coming? – UPDATED

Yesterday I posted an article warning about the potential for violence, if not outright armed rebellion, if Trump and the Republicans tries to replace RGB. <click here to read the article>

I really looked all over the Internet this morning for several hours and found a large list of groups calling to “burn down” the system (including Congress) if the current administration tries to replace RGB.

And, not so strangely, there is a long and growing list of celebrities calling for the same thing.

For this to gain so much traction so quickly is worrisome to say the least. The next “dot” to watch for are actual protests or demonstrations that would support the “burn it down” advocacy and how quickly they show up.

Even Pelosi is talking about another impeachment attempt before the election or if Trump is defeated, during his lame-duck period.

Keep your eyes open, become more prepared, fill the holes in your pres, and stand-by.

And one more thing…get your principles defined, solidified, and be prepared to stand up for them.

Do not succumb to “politics”…stand for your “principles” ! !

Ginsburg Dead! & Armed Rebellion Coming?

While I am glad to see one less radical leftist member of the Supreme Court gone, I have to extend my condolences to Ginsburg’s family for their loss. But, this creates a potential powder keg situation for the country.

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died in February 2016. Obama nominated Merrick Garland to replace him. Republican leadership, they controlled the Senate, said that the vacancy should not be filled until after the Presidential election in 2016, and the new President was sworn in.

Now, McConnell is saying something entirely different. He has stated multiple times in the last 5 months that he would allow Trump to nominate and a vote would be taken on any Court vacancy.

Ouch, obviously a double standard as well as hypocrisy at its worse. But there is a potentially much larger problem…violence. Or, I should say much more violence.

What do you think will happen if Trump is allowed to nominate a Conservative to fill Ginsburg’s vacancy…and the Senate confirms? Actually, they will go ballistic when Trump is allowed to nominate, they will go more ballistic when the hearings take place…and they will go nuclear if a nominee is confirmed if this is done before the election. And double that if Trump is defeated and this stills goes through before January 20th when Trump would leave office.

We could potentially see an open armed rebellion in the streets.

Prepare now for that eventuality.

Note: I am working on another piece; it is in its final editing. Three weeks’ worth of work has gone into the research and editing. I hope to get it out on Monday. With this Ginsburg vacancy development I have to “war game” what, if any, differences it may make in my opinion.

Stand-by!  Prepare now!

Crotchety old man…

You know what really made me happy and gave me a lot of satisfaction? Over the last couple of weeks a few things I did for some folks:

  • Took care of a neighbor’s farm and animals so his family could go camping for a few days.
  • Repaired a switch on a friends ATV without him knowing it.
  • Spent a few hours working on our community’s dirt roads with my tractor.
  • Cooked 6 meals for a family in need.
  • Built a parking area, complete with a culvert, on a neighbor’s 4a so they could have their family up for the weekend…and start building a shop in preparation for them building a “get-away” cabin.
  • Baked 4 loaves of bread for neighbors just for the heck of it.
  • Helped a friend move his family to a new home.
  • Helped a neighbor put up drywall in his bathroom to restart his stalled house remodeling project.
  • Graded around a neighbor’s house because he couldn’t afford to have a company come in and do it.

And the list goes on and on. And I loved every minute of it and look forward to doing more !

When I retired I made a deal with God…I would thank Him, and worship Him, by helping others. And it is amazingly satisfying…I feel like I am really helping others and having a positive impact in their lives. In other words…being both useful and helpful through serving others.

Now…a reality check!!

An example in contrast: I spent about 20 hours on the three-part series SitRep – 08/29/20, researching, writing, finding & adding graphics, editing, etc. As a result of that effort…123 people read Part #1, 104 people read Part #2, and only 77 people read Part #3. Yeah, that really, really sucks! To make it even worse…just three people “liked” Part #1, two people “liked” Part #2, same for Part #3. And one person made a comment…yup, just one. That’s pathetic…really, really sad!!!

And don’t be insulted…the pathetic, sad, sucks, etc. applies to what I am doing, what I wrote…not anything to do with what ya’ll are doing. It is just pretty obvious that the article simply missed the point for what folks are looking for. In other words…I am not meeting a “need” with my assessments, suggestions, writing, etc.

I looked at the number of “followers” I have…pretty dang low for the Internet, pretty low for “prepper” websites as well. And I’ve only gained a couple new followers in the last couple of weeks. Pitiful by Internet standards !

Well, I am not going to drag this out…I’ve come to several conclusions:

  1. I don’t think there are more than a handful of folks who find any value in my knowledge, experience, writing style, my vision/version of “prepping”, or my guidance in emergency preparedness.
  2. I am not making much, if any, impact on people being prepared for emergencies, disasters, or grid-down events.
  3. My time spent on writing articles is virtually wasted when compared to alternative uses of my time in helping others.

So folks…four “Tip” articles came out this morning that I already had ready to go and scheduled, so I just bumped them up to come out this morning. Those will be my last articles unless something drastically changes or I see some special need in the future. Well, actually…there will be a posting on 9/11. That has been a very special day to me and this year was a turning point for me and that experience 19 years ago. I will be updating the Table of Contents at some point in the coming days, weeks, or months as time permits. And then the website will sit out there as a dusty old book sitting on a shelf for anyone who stumbles upon it.

Take care folks…I hope and pray we all manage to get through what is coming…you will be in my prayers.

Here is the follow-up article written a week later after all the comments to this article. <click here to read the follow-up>

Planned Parenthood : Margaret Sanger

Planned Parenthood : Did you fall down, hit your head, and think you woke up in the 1950’s or 1890’s?

Left-Wing Extremist  Elizabeth Warren

note: article first appeared in July 2015

To read my original article on Planned Parenthood and who they are, read this article <click here to read it>

Elizabeth Warren, the US Senator, the left-wing socialist extremist and Native American impersonator is at it again. Here is a quote from her “Did you fall down, hit your head, and think you woke up in the 1950’s or 1890’s?” Of course she was referring to the Senate attempting to defund Planned Parenthood. But the leftist Warren wasn’t done yet, “…a deliberate, methodical, orchestrated, right-wing attack on women’s rights.”

Yeah, uh huh…right.

If you read my article posted yesterday you know exactly my feeling on abortion.

Let’s get back to the woman who went on to say that the Republicans only wanted to strip away the right of a woman’s access to healthcare. Wow! Can you believe that someone can still think like that in the year 2015? Especially after having all the data, all the facts, and even the video-taped admissions of Planed Parenthood leadership. Those admissions detailing that they are performing abortions for profit and developing new ways to leave more baby body parts intact to sell for more money. They even outline how they plan to create deception trying to hide the fact that they are selling complete, intact, fully formed babies that have been aborted.

Now, granted, Elisabeth Warren is hard to take seriously when she is such a radical socialist that supports infanticide. Yes, that means she is perfectly OK with stabling babies in their heads with sharp surgical instruments and then severing their spines. And doing both of those things while the baby is alive and able to feel pain. Then she advocates for the organization that is selling the bodies and body parts of those babies that have been killed.

But ,Warren doesn’t want to refer to the killing of unborn babies as murder, infanticide, or racial genocide…although it is exactly all of those things.

So, I have to ask Senator Elizabeth Warren, “Did you fall down, hit your head, and think you woke up in 1939?”

Nazi Eugenics program learned from the founder of Planned Parenthood

FYI…1939 is when Nazis started the killing of the mentally ill, disabled, feeble and all others whose genes they considered to be “impure” and causing problems for their German race. The Nazi death program was called “eugenics.”

Eugenics is the same program that Planned Parenthood helped established here in the United States in the earlier part of the 1900’s. The founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, is the same person whose organization and associates taught the Nazis about eugenics. The same Planned Parenthood that today is killing well over a million babies per year. And making a significant profit committing infanticide.

And a little more FYI, the exact same Planned Parenthood that the federal government gives over a half a billion dollars to each year to commit their atrocities.

I have to wonder, when people look back at this time period in history will they ask, “How did intelligent people, decent people, a so-called democracy commit infanticide killing millions of babies each year?”

People have already asked that question about Nazi Germany, “How could the good Germans stand-by and watch the trains full of Jews head towards the death camps, knowing full well that they would be placed in ovens?”

And throughout history people have looked back at dozens of times in history and asked the same question, “How could they have let that happen?”

What do think would be Warren’s answer, “How could you stand-by, no, actively support, the mass killing of babies each year, for nearly 50 years?”

How would you answer that question for yourself?

Please don’t…

Wow!  I’ve been working on 6 or 7 preparedness articles (radios to generators) to get them ready to post. But late today I made a huge mistake! I went to another preparedness website. I really shouldn’t have. Do you want to know why? Very, very discouraging!

Please don’t get me wrong…I got to other sites regularly to get up to speed on different current events and to get a sense of the attitude of other preppers out there. This was not good today…not good at all.

First, the website I visited is a large prepper website. But, they also get into dreams, visions, weird teachings, and some strange subjects that get pretty off the beaten path. The website is largely made up of Christians, as well as being overwhelmingly conservative. By in large I think the people are good, well-intentioned, and just decent people. But…based on many of the posts I read while I was there…dang…they have strayed from gospel and Constitutional principles…and maybe worse.

Let me explain with a couple of examples…there is a man out there who has led two successful operations against the federal government. He has gone up against federal law enforcement agencies twice and won. He has demonstrated solid Constitutional understanding, supported Founding Father principles, and basically been a man to be trusted and he is counted on to be on the side of right. But, he is now being demonized. Yup…demonized! Demonized by the same people who held him as a hero for a long time.

He was to attend a BLM rally to show support to defund police according to an article written about him. So first off, the article is second hand information as best. And people who were posting terrible comments about him never gave that a single thought…at least based on the tone of their writing. Next, we have no idea what exactly he means by defunding police. To defund their militarization is exactly in accordance with Founding Father principles and positions. Defund to do away with police is not realistic. Defunding federal law enforcement agencies to the point of making them go away is a basic Constitution compliant position/principle. But, no one was giving him a chance, benefit of the doubt, etc. Just condemning him was the flavor of the day.

Then another article about food shortages during a lockdown. Well, for bragging about being upright disciples of Christ…they sounded like anything but! They talked about not sharing any food at all and watching people starve to death. Another talked about putting people into virtual slavery just to eat. All the posts were similar in tone and content…if you weren’t prepared…oh well, too bad for you and your kids! It was sickening, let alone disheartening.

I could relate more but I won’t…it is just too depressing. We are seeing exactly what I have warned about. Brother against brother, the sifting of US citizens, breaking into tribes, increase in evil, predisposition for violence, etc. For those of you who are Christians…we are seeing the sifting of the wheat from the chaff spoken of in the scriptures in the last days.

Here is my bottom line message…PLEASE DON’T!!!!   Please don’t forget who you are. Please don’t forget why we prepare. Please don’t forget what is means to be a basic human being. Please don’t forget what it means to be a disciple of Christ. Please don’t forget…just please don’t forget!

Be the person who you are supposed to be. Be that leader that is generous, merciful, understanding, admired and appreciated. Be that follower that understands mercy. Be that Christian who understands what Christ wants us to be.

Stand for correct principles. Don’t get caught up in a crowd mentality. Avoid group think. Reach out to others and build bridges…don’t destroy them. Do not be part of the radical right. Do not be a law & order extremist. Understand who the real enemies are. Think clearly.

Please don’t become one of them…please.

While I was working this morning…opinions, views, and warning.

Hey Ya’ll, good afternoon!

I was out early this morning, about 5:30am, working on my driveway, my 750’ driveway. I was doing some very physical labor moving heavy rock, gathering more rock, strategically placing that rock, then getting cinders and filling in and leveling. Then I topped the morning off with getting another load of big/heavy rock off my neighbor’s pile. I’ll place those on the driveway tomorrow morning and keep the project going till the sun gets too hot for me to work. So, the whole time I was working this morning I was thinking, pondering, evaluating, and considering a number of issues…worried about all of it. And that is what I want to talk about this morning.

Here’s the deal…I am writing this article completely for me. I need to get a few things off my chest and share with you some deep feelings and concerns…and some troubling thoughts. At first I thought it would be some kind of warning or a head’s up…but nope! This article is for me to unload some things. What you do with them is up to you. Actually, you may not even read the rest of the article…and I understand and don’t blame you a bit. So here goes, if you are interested…

I truly, honestly believe that we are -more than likely- at a tipping point due to the probability of a “Bubba Effect” event. And when that occurs, we are screwed…completely screwed.

But let me back up a bit. I am old enough to have lived through the race riots of the late 1960’s. It was a horrible time in America. To explain it would be difficult. Blacks felt very oppressed, they felt racism was rampant, that police brutality against blacks was intense and pervasive, and that they were not treated under a primary founding principle of our country, “…that all men are created equal…” And they were 100% right! And the race riots were their way of showing their frustration. Right or wrong…there it was…frustration and a certain sense of hopelessness.

I remember my dad saying some of the most vile and hateful things about blacks during that time. I remember him cleaning his gun and bragging about looking forward to those n*gg*rs coming to our town…then he pointed the gun at the door and dry fired it. I didn’t understand him then…unfortunately I understand him, and that experience, now.

We are there again…and worse. Why worse? Because there is more organization to the violent provocateurs, hyper-militarized police with a propensity to do extreme violence and violate the Constitution, an agenda driven media, a better organized violent right-wing opposition, and plenty more bubbas.

Let me share some more of my explanations of what I just mentioned…

* “violent provocateurs” – We are seeing a combination of a well-financed group pouring in millions of dollars towards organizations, mostly anarchist groups, to fund their violent activities. We are seeing a coalition of provocateurs who infiltrate peaceful protests and then escalate the situation into violence…solely to get a reaction, a violent reaction, from any law enforcement present against the civilians present.



* “hyper-militarized police with a propensity to do extreme violence and violate the Constitution” – Man, were do I start! I’ve been writing and warning about this for years and years now. And here we are. Several things have seriously gotten to me in the last few days.

  1. Navy veteran, Naval Academy graduate, Christopher David…threatened, beaten, bones broken, and then pepper sprayed. Yeah…at the hands of DHS troops. But I am naturally cynical and skeptical by nature. So I had to look into this myself and my first question was, “Why was he there?” In his own words he stated that he was concerned about unidentified troops in military camouflage uniforms taking people off the street and putting them into unmarked vehicles, taking them to undisclosed locations, and not presenting them to a legal system court as required by the Constitution. OK, legitimate and admirable reason to be there. Next, “Was he threatening or aggressive towards the DHS troops?” I watched every video I could find about the encounter. It is plain, very plain and clear…he was NEVER threatening or aggressive, his body language was relaxed and casual. As DHS troops began pushing and shoving a group of female non-violent protestors he approached the DHS troops and asked them if they understood their oath to the Constitution and why were they violating it. One of the DHS troops aimed a fully automatic M4 military carbine at his chest, another DHS trooper then began to beat him with a long wooden crowd control baton, and finally another DHS trooper then doused him with a large amount of pepper spray directly into his eyes, nose and mouth from mere inches away. David finally just turned and walked away with chemical burns to his eyes and respiratory system and multiple broken bones. In what universe is this acceptable behavior on the part of anyone who remotely claims to be law enforcement?
  2. Wall of Moms – A group was organized by middle aged moms in the Portland area called “Wall of Moms” and their stated purpose is “We are about protecting peaceful citizens’ right to protest.” Yup, they put themselves between peaceful protestors and DHS troops. Who in their right mind would think that is a bad thing!!! They want to prevent violent clashes between protestors and various versions of law enforcement. A great, compassionate, thoughtful, wonderful concept…to maintain peace and a non-violent environment. They were doing so on a recent night outside one of Portland’s federal buildings. The protesters were in-fact peaceful at this point and then DHS troops came pouring out of the building and attacked the mothers who had linked arms with each other on the public side of the barrier fence erected by federal troops. The mothers were pushed, beaten, and prepper sprayed. I watched video after video after video of this incident. Once again…in what universe is this acceptable behavior on the part of law enforcement!!
  3. Retired 3-Star General – so yesterday I was looking into the violence in Portland and the extreme violence on the part of DHS troops against civilians. I found this video with an interview of a retired 3-star Army general. He made a great case…against the DHS troops. First he explained the purpose of the multi-can camouflage clothing worn by the Army in combat…for their military troops to blend in with their surroundings to make it harder for the enemy to see them. Bottom line…to reduce casualties. And to make each other readily identifiable to each other to prevent friendly fire casualties. Then he explained that multi-cam uniforms worn by DHS troops were being used in an urban environment therefore was inappropriate and completely worthless as camouflage. Then he stated unequivocally, the sole purpose of the DHS troops wearing multi-cam camouflage uniforms was to appear as military troops and to intimidate civilians. Then he railed against DHS, a federal law enforcement agency, for commandeering an official US military uniform to be worn against US civilians while committing atrocities against those civilians that rose to the level of war crimes. His case was rock solid, accurate, and passionate. Then it dawned on me…these DHS troops were in-fact fully militarized law enforcement acting exactly as military troops, looking like military troops, armed with military tactical gear, carrying military weapons. All of these DHS troops…are now full on military. Why does this bother me? You already know that answer, but I will address it in my “summary”. Just think for a minute…if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, walks like a duck…it’s probably a duck.

* “an agenda driven media” – Notice I didn’t say an agenda driven leftist media. Although I would have been entirely correct with that statement…but that is only the half of it. By in large we have two sets of media in this country…1) leftist, 2) conservative. Both are agenda driven, both are dangerous, both refuse to report objectively, both are spewing propaganda for their respective party. I even listened to this so-called “doctor”, a PhD guy that was so in love with Trump and all things right-wing and conservative that he was impossible to listen to because it was so obvious he was not just manipulating facts and news…he was outright lying. Disgusting! But, the key is…both are dangerous, very dangerous! Why? Because they feed their respective parties with Confirmation Bias that continues to escalate the division and now they are escalating the violence. Neither side of the media presents an objective view of events…only their version of truth designed solely to cause more and more violence.

* “a better organized violent right-wing opposition” – I spent hours the last 4 days watching video of confrontation between BLM (and similar organizations) and right-wing groups. In most, not all, of the situations the BLM/similar groups were peacefully protesting…although vocal, taunting and civil disruption. And for the most part, the right-wingers started violent encounters and escalated the situations intentionally. And it will get worse. Right-wingers, law & order extremists, and others of similar ilk will continue to raise their profile, their escalations efforts, their violence, and their numbers. The growth curve of this behavior is now exponential in nature.

Time to Ask Questions –

So now…what does all of that mean? Well, first you must remember that this is only my opinion…but those opinions of mine are based on clear and factual information than is proven beyond a reasonable doubt. So I am comfortable in my opinions.

OK…so what does all of this mean? We are in a world of hurt as a nation…and it will get worse, much worse. I believe we are now more likely to have a violent civil war than not. And I don’t mean a Civil War like the 1860’s…I mean a civil war as in tribe against tribe. We have devolved as a country into tribalism and war among the tribes is virtually inevitable…and has horrific implications. But hang on a second…

Did you notice that I used the term “DHS troops”? Did you wonder why, or do you already know. In my opinion federal law enforcement agencies are fully militarized and performing as any military troops would do in third world countries run by petty dictators. And just in case you want to think about something else for a minute…read the Constitution. Is there any mention of authorization for any national level police force or law enforcement agency? No, there is not.

And something else to think about…Let’s just say for a minute that Trump is justified in sending in DHS troops to cities and states where they have not been requested and are not welcomed…by the respective state and city leadership. OK…got that? So now we are down the road somewhere with a different President…and he/she doesn’t like what a state governor or a city mayor is doing, or how they are handling a particular problem. What is to stop that President from sending in DHS troops? Get my point…once the precedence is set, where does it stop…where does it end? A slippery slope kind of thing.

But some might say that the DHS troops are there to protect federal property. OK, so why are they leaving federal property and committing all manner of violence against veterans, moms, journalists, and otherwise peaceful civilians? And please don’t let anyone try to say they are not doing those things…there are hundreds of videos showing their actions that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that these atrocities are occurring.

This is the problem when law & order extremists get power. This is what governments, the Ruling Class, the Elites, do to acquire and maintain power…power against their own citizens. They use extreme violence, intimidation, and other forms of evil to suppress the population and the citizens’ God-given rights.

Now, don’t get me wrong…the violent protestors, the anarchists, those that are destroying property, the animals that are attacking legitimate police officers should be dealt with through the legal system. If the anarchist animals attack, or attempt to destroy private property, then the owners of that property or those being attacked have every legal and God-given right to protect themselves and their property…including the use of lethal force.

But, how do the DHS troops justify the violent attack on the women in the Wall of Moms? How do the DHS troops justify the horrific and unprovoked attack on the Navy veteran Christopher David?

Here is the point in that matter…they can’t justify it. And worse, they don’t have to because no one in the federal government holds them accountable. Why? Because they are the federal government’s shock troops, their Brown Shirts, doing the bidding of those in power who wish to teach US citizens a lesson. And that lesson is…


Now, let me come back to the coming “Bubba Effect”…I’ve explained it before. But, in brief…it is the point when a right-wing or white supremacist, or redneck, or biker, or some law & order extremist gets fed up with BLM, AntiFa, or some other leftist group or person and that Bubba commits an extreme act of violence against the opposition…probably murder. Once that happens the Ruling Class, the Elites have won! Why? Because they will use that incident to prove they have been right all along. They will also use it as additional justification for more government goons to get into the fight and more suppression of rights and freedoms. But it doesn’t end there…that is just the beginning.

To retaliate AntiFa would become more aggressive and violent. Or alternatively, maybe in addition to, the NFAC <click here to read about them> will lash out. And with over 1,000 heavily armed members (some estimates are in the multiple 1,000’s) they could create a horrible and causality ridden armed clash. The New Black Panthers would not be left out, so they would strike as well. And then the black gangs would get into it. And so on.

And what do you think all the while nationalists would be doing? Or the white supremacists? The III Percenters? How about the hundreds of militias around the country?

So you think that gets bad…what is happening with the DHS troops…even the military…at that point?

I see a picture where everyone but the Ruling Class, the Elite, loses. And I mean lose big time! What Executive Orders do you think would be issued? What curfews implemented, movement restrictions put into effect, gun rights destroyed, etc.? Where do you think it would stop? Do you think it would stop? Now, hold that thought.

I had one of my website visitors send me an email asking me to review a video and give him my opinion on this guy who is in the process of establishing a nationwide militia, a “movement”, a “nationwide network”. What I found was very, very disturbing.

I won’t use his name or the group’s name or provide the video link because I don’t want to give this guy or his militia any exposure. Why? Because I think he is very dangerous person trying to do a very, very dangerous thing…something that will get people put into prison or get folks dead. Let me explain…

This guy starts out his video talking about currently being a business owner who supplies equipment and training to preppers. He then states he is a former Special Operations soldier. And then he goes into the fact that he left the military to do private contracting for the CIA and brags about the money he made. Then he makes statements such as “I am going to rally the troops. I am going to get as many people as possible as part of this so we can come together when shit hits the fan, because it will.” He states he will provide information and actionable intelligence. Then he solicits money and your email address.

So here were some of my observations:

  • He is former SpecOps. He comes from a perspective of extreme violence. He is a gunfighter, a shooter, a highly trained killer. He is trained to destroy and kill…and be very good at both.
  • He is former CIA. The CIA is a master of deception and one of the greatest evils the world has ever seen. The CIA’s job is to destroy, kill, and overthrow governments. They kidnap, torture, and perform all manner of evil.
  • I wouldn’t have a single thing to do with this guy or his organization. Why? His training, his self-admitted work he has done in the past, his association with the CIA, his making it clear “he” is the center point of everything.
  • He makes it clear he is creating an organization…whatever name you want to call it…that will be controlled by him and do his bidding. He says over and over again…”I”, “my”, “me”…and that he is the “only” one that can do this.
  • I don’t know his intentions, it is not possible for me to know them. I can tell you this…in my opinion…he is an ego maniac…he is looking for a mass following…he is looking at using violence…he talks of his “team”…etc.  His message has all the earmarks of a man trying to create a power base, a power structure, and with him in control of it. This has all the makings of a “brown shirt” operation…especially considering the CIA link.
  • I did not get a good underlying feeling about him. I could sense he was telling only a small part of what his plan is. He spoke only of those things that would rally people to him, he played to people’s emotions. I think of the old wise saying, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” I think it applies in this situation…a whole lot.
  • What I didn’t hear from him:
    • Holding bad cops accountable.
    • Resisting tyranny.
    • Constitutional rights, liberties, and freedoms.
    • Principles of our Founding Fathers, the Declaration of Independence, etc.
    • Restoring any of the above, fighting against any/all forces that work against the above.

This is exactly why I am encouraging you, begging you, not to join any militia, not to support one, and not to form one. This current climate is perfect for all manner of people with evil intentions to take advantage of it. It is also a perfect opportunity for any number of mentally unstable people to take advantage of people’s emotions and fears…and form groups that will later be used against God and against the Constitution.

Summary –

I see the situation as it is now as being the perfect convergence that creates an environment that is picture-perfect for the Ruling Class, the Elites, to take a quantum leap towards their end goal.

We have anarchists trying to topple society, we have racists trying to further their causes, we have a plethora of well-intentioned people being sucked into causes without knowing enough about them, we have militias of every stripe ready to strike, we have violence in major cities and even medium sized towns, we have good peace officers being lumped in with thugs with badges, we have DHS militarized troops committing all manner of atrocities against US citizens.

Bottom line…we are a nation of tribes…tribes that have been pitted against each other and ready to kill each other. The rule of law has broken down, we have lawless law enforcement running amok in some cases and failing to do their jobs in others.

We, as a nation, are ripe for a civil war…and who do you know that is actively trying to avoid it? I don’t see any politician trying to stop it. In some cases they are actively escalating it. I see plenty of people bragging about being ready to fight other tribes…often hiding those motives within “self-defense” or “law & order” rhetoric. I see plenty of people trying to sound educated and justify their own tribe’s position while denigrating other tribes’ stated grievances. I see a lot of folks criticizing people for protesting…peaceful protesting…when that is a Constitutionally guaranteed right. I see plenty of people complaining about what other people do…while expressing all manner of prejudice and bigotry themselves. And most unfortunately, I see people unconditionally backing their party or their idolized politician(s)…and failing to see reality.

I see our country unraveling. I see our country devolving into warring rivals tribes. I see hate, bigotry, prejudice, and ignorance prevailing over common sense. I see the Constitution being ignored in favor of law & order. I see anarchists who can’t even spell Constitution. I see our country in dire straits…very, very dire straits.

The Answer(s) –

What is the answer? To me it is relatively simple:

  1. Understand who the real enemy is and what their stated goal is…the Ruling Class, the Elites, and to establish an authoritarian/totalitarian government.
  2. Stop thinking in terms of politics, politicians, and parties. Think in terms of principles. Specifically gospel centered principles and Constitutional based principles.
  3. Drop all bias, bigotry, and prejudice. Listen to every reasonable person and try to understand their perspective and their point of view.
  4. Stop reading and watching only those news items and using only those news sources that confirm your positions/views…Confirmation Bias.
  5. See reality…not what you want reality to be…or what you think reality is to justify your own position or your own tribe…but what reality really is.
  6. Think in terms of “consensus” not in terms of “compromise” or “compliance”.

If we can’t do these things then I feel that the chances of getting through this as the United States of America is virtually impossible. And I mean that in the absolute worst of terms.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you want the country run by leftist and anarchists?
  • Do you want a police state with the federal storm troopers in charge?
  • Do you want the Ruling Class, the Elites, to win?
  • Do you want our country’s history, warts and all, destroyed and wiped out?
  • Do you want militias fighting each other or militias patrolling your town’s streets?
  • Do you want the Rule of Law to reign supreme…or do you want to be ruled over?
  • Do you want tribes or communities?

Think over these questions very carefully. Think about your answers even more carefully. Then listen to your heart and your head on what to do about it. I trust you to find the right answers for you and your family.

There is an old saying…”You are either part of the solution or part of the problem.” It has never been more applicable than today.

Choose you this day.

The 7/17/2020 SitRep Action Plan Explained…

I’ve had more than a few requests to explain my Action Plan that I included at the end of my SitRep – 07/17/20. So I took a few hours this morning to write some of my reasoning behind what I suggested as items for your action plan. As always, some of the items may apply to you, some might not. Even those that apply to you are to be used by you as you see fit. Let your instinct be your guide. Only YOU know your situation and what is best for you, your family, and your community.

I hope this makes sense and you find value in what I put forward. I think if you ponder it…no, I am sure that as you ponder these 16 items you will find the value, the nuggets, that will help you in going forward.

If you haven’t already read the SitRep – 07/17/20 – Warning! you may want to do so before reading this post <click here to read it>.

Here is each of the 16 items and some thoughts on each:

  1. Implement a plan to fill any holes in your emergency preparations based on the 7 Common Risks & Threats.

We have seen in the last 6 months what it is like when folks aren’t prepared for even the most simple and basic of issues and disruptions of the supply chain and services. Do you want to run out of toilet paper? Of course not. But, what disappears from the shelves next…do you have enough to get by? We have an overall idea of what might come next…I want you to be prepared for it so you and your family do not suffer. And, the 7 Common Risks & Threats covers the bases when it comes to ALL aspects of emergency preparedness. Each one of those Risks/Threats are common to every emergency, disaster, and even grid-down. If you have used that as a guide you will be prepared, you will be ready, and you will not fear.

Why work diligently to fill the holes now? Why not now? You know what is coming.

  1. Do NOT join any militia of any kind, or any group that vocally expresses blanket support for police.

Sounds strange that these two are lumped together. But I have my reasoning. There are groups out there, some are referred to as militias, but they go by other names as well. And these groups are militant and express unconditional support for law & order, police departments, and anti-AntiFa, etc. They have been showing up in communities well-armed, some in full battle rattle.

However, some of these groups have questionable leadership, suspect motives, and doubtful ability to understand and stand-by Constitutionals rights of folks. They act tough, they strut around, and show off their latest cool tactical gear. But, beware!!

All of these groups either have government special agents (i.e. FBI) or confidential informants that are keeping their respective law enforcement agencies fully aware of what is going on…well, their version of what is going on. There is a huge list of instances where these “moles” have reported misinformation back to their handlers…and in the past it has led to arrests, malicious prosecution, wrongful imprisonment, and in some extreme cases…death. Police departments are desperate right now to prove themselves…don’t get caught up in something like that.

More importantly…don’t get caught up in a group, however well-intentioned, who may do the wrong thing at the wrong time, in the wrong situation…and it goes horribly bad.

This is not the time for joining a militia or any similar group.

  1. Do look for Peace Officers who respect and honor the Constitution…in good times and bad. Then tell them you appreciate them and stand by them when the time comes…and the time will come.

As I’ve pointed out for years…there are good guys out there who carry badges! And the good ones are fairly easy to spot…they are the police officers (a.k.a Peace Officers) who are not killing people by kneeling on their neck, they are not the ones arresting journalists, they are not the ones shooting peaceful protesters with rubber bullets, they are not the ones whisking protestors off in unmarked vans while not wearing agency identification, they are not the ones posting mocking or racist material on websites, etc. You know who they are. They are not the ones who will justify their acts by saying, “I was just following orders” or “I don’t make the laws, I just enforce them.” The good guys will stand by the Constitution, rights, liberties, and freedoms even when it is not popular with their political bosses or their fellow officers. They are the ones who know that “To serve and protect” means to serve and protect citizens…NOT serve politicians or political agendas. They are the ones will to stop other officers from “tuning up” suspects…or stop them from killing a man in handcuffs, on the ground, begging for his life, while one of the badge holding tough guys…well, you get the idea.

And the good guys with badges NEED your support! They need that face-to-face where you sincerely thank them, buy them lunch, give them a bottle of water on a hot day, and any number of heartfelt gestures. They need that support now…and they will need your support in the future. And in the future the support they need may well be of a more physical nature.

Let the good guys know that you recognize them, appreciate them, respect them, and are there for them. Be actively engaged in this effort! The good guys with badges need to know that the public has their back…or at least you have their back.

  1. Do NOT generally talk to folks about forming any armed group.

Right now most law enforcement agencies, all federal law enforcement agencies, have an all-out effort to identify “threats” and that means people capable of and willing to cause violence. And as the FBI has been directing these efforts for nearly 20 years…potential domestic terrorists are at the top of their concern list. And the list that the FBI and DHS uses to identify potential domestic terrorists apply to almost exactly anyone who is a prepper, Constitutionalist, Christian, veteran, food storage advocate, etc. And they are specifically looking for any “groups” who advocate violence. And yes, that means any group who support the Second Amendment and who want to protect their family and community.

Especially now…if you become associated with, or attempt to form, any group who is armed, expresses a desire to protect your community or protect your personal property….you will fall directly in the bullseye of one or more law enforcement agencies…and almost assuredly at the federal level…meaning the FBI. And don’t think you can do so under the radar. The FBI has a massive network of undercover agents and confidential informants who are all ready, willing, and able to suck you into their web.

Stay away from these kinds of activities.

  1. Stay very aware of what is happening in your community. Keep your Situation Awareness at its peak.

I am sure you’ve noticed that protests have occurred from coast to coast. Obviously all the big cities…but also in small towns. A nearby town, population under 12000 people, had BLM protestors and a few AntiFa mixed in. However, they were largely ineffective, ignored, and didn’t cause any notable problems. But…they were there and who knows what might spark a real problem. But, that isn’t the real threat…at least not in this situation. Just yesterday I ran into some a large number of folks doing some “target practice” out in the middle of nowhere while I was riding in my UTV. Normally no issue…but they were drinking and blowing up more than a little tannerite. As a couple of us were talking four of the 20 – 40 age group took their AKs & ARs and just let loose with extreme rapid fire for a whole 30-round mag each. Then the hooting and hollering as the smoke cleared…

“That’s just what those AntiFa guys will get!”

OK, so maybe the beer and false bravado of a gun rush was talking. But, there is some truth to what they said. How much truth is debatable. But, what if a group of folks like this actually geared-up and went after a relatively benign group of protestors in the community? Or even went after a group of looters? Leave the bad guys to the police and those protecting their own personal property and businesses. Don’t get involved in armed vigilantly groups.

Be aware of what is happening in your community, the potential flash points, and even the smallest of threats. It might just get out of hand.

  1. Stay off social media where controversial topics are discussed such as militias, armed resistance, etc.

This ties into earlier topics. Law enforcement agencies have people combing through social media looking for potential targets. And I mean anyone who they can classify, rightly or wrongly, as a potential threat…especially “groups.” And once they have put you on the list…you never, ever get off it. You are in their database forever…and always a potential threat!

If things get bad (I could just as easily say “when”) and law enforcement starts to round up folks, who will they come for first? Second? If/when they want to send a message to those who would oppose ant-Constitutional actions…who are they going to look at as their biggest threat or easiest target…and what will they do?

Just trust me on this…you don’t need this kind of attention right now…or in the future. Don’t bring a spotlight on yourself in this way. And I am telling you point blank…federal law enforcement agencies are all over social media looking for targets of opportunity. Don’t be one!

  1. Read, understand, and use all of my Immediate Action Warnings that I have produced since the beginning of 2020.

I don’t have all the answers. I do have some. I issue those Immediate Action Warnings for a reason…sometimes for a whole host of reason. Sometimes I have inside information that I cannot, and will not reveal. Sometimes it is just common sense and some folks may just need a little nudge. Whatever the case…read the warnings and listen to what your instinct tells you needs to be done for you and your family. Then act on it!

  1. Have discussions with your neighbors to get an idea of where they are with everything that is happening.

What I am talking about here is just to get a feel for what is in their head and heart. Whose side are they on? Will they be on the right side when it hits the fan? Will they be a threat or valuable ally when times get tough? Are they a raging liberal AntiFA supporter…or worse, a law & order extremist?

Just get to know who your neighbors are…it will pay off big time!!  And they might even invite you over for a BBQ.

  1. Prepare for the potential second wave of COVID-19 this fall.

COVID-19 is in its third major mutation…that has made it much more contagious. However, it appears that its lethality is lower. So you are more likely to get it, and less likely to die from it.

However, the next natural mutation would be for COVID-19 to become more lethal. That’s just how viruses work. Their mission is to find hosts, feed off them, and move on. A “survival of the fittest” kind of thing.

Right now people are outside much more, and that means more social distancing, and more sun whose UV rays kills viruses. But as fall approaches, and especially if schools open back up, we will be in much closer proximity to each other, less sunlight, and a perfect breeding ground for the spread of the virus. History has proven that over and over.

If those in power see a spike of the nature we could be looking at in the fall they will react in more dramatic and draconian ways. They already have a good feel for what powers, Constitutional or otherwise, that they can wield over their respective populations. And you could see extreme measures taken…far worse than what we’ve seen so far. And with it being a presidential election cycle…well, let your imagination dictate what could happen. Don’t get caught lacking in your prepping.

  1. Prepare for increased violence when/if colleges and schools reopen.

Colleges are historical hotbeds of unrest and violence when it comes to social issues. Kids at that age are full of energy, seeking direction, susceptible to all manner of evil, and easily motivated to violence. Beware! If the anarchist leadership can maintain the momentum they’ve built up there could be real trouble. Just as a second wave of COVID-19…we could be looking at a second wave of violence. This would especially be true if another George Floyd situation occurred…or a situation that the propagandists could make one to appear as such.

This has the potential to be a huge flashpoint! Not just the anarchists and politicians will take advantage of it…look for the violent right to become much more active.

  1. Prepare for a horrific Presidential campaign season.

I’ve been writing and warning about this for a couple of years now. And for good reason! Not only do we have historical perspective of what the “politics” could look like…we now have the widespread violence aspect increasing. And I am telling you point blank…there is political violence coming.

The violence will be from both sides. AntiFa and the leftists will want to confront Trump supporters. And there will no shortage of Trump supporters who will welcome the opportunity to violently confront those on the left. And violence will occur…and it will be deadly.

I expect to see a level of violence on par with the Democratic National Convention of 1968…or worse. Be careful, be cautious, be aware, be smart. And of course…don’t believe what the politicians say…or the media.

  1. Prepare for the fallout from whoever wins the election…especially if the Dems sweep Congress and the Whitehouse.

Another topic I have talked at length on for the last couple of years. Suffice to say, whomever wins…the opposition is not going to like it…not at all. Not only will there be spin-off violence from the election, there will political knee jerking. If the leftist Democrats win expect there to be a long list of rights restrictions, liberty/freedom killing legislation…a full-on Communist/Marxist agenda attempted. And a radical and violent reaction from their opposition.

If the Republicans win…they will be emboldened and attempt to implement more of their agenda. And it too will be violently opposed by the left. And that opposition will in-turn be met with a violent reaction from the right.

This election cycle is a “lose-lose” situation filled the potential of violence…extreme violence. Be careful, be cautious, be aware, be smart.

  1. Hone your critical thinking skills and dig for accurate information…distrust the media and distrust all social media even more…especially prepper social media websites.

Accurate and truthful information will be very hard to find. It will be out there to be sure. But, both political parties, all political candidates, will not be advocating and promoting truth. They will, as politicians do, advocate only that which supports their own agenda…personal or party.

Treat all media and politician information as false and fake. Be especially watchful for “deepfake” media. Use your own skills, your own mind, your own sources, and find the truth. And then pass that truth on to all those you realistically can.

In the coming months truth will be a rare commodity…an endangered species.

Prepper social media websites especially, and most prepper websites in general, have developed some serious issues. Some have gone full-on hard right militant and violence prone. Some have gone into some very weird directions that I won’t go into. Some have particularly problematic and questionable leadership that have…well, gotten themselves into some deep legal trouble. Be very cautious about social media sites right now…especially prepper social media websites…there are some real problems at the present. And…they are rife with confidential informants working for all manner of federal law enforcement agencies as well as local agencies. Be very wary!

  1. Push to reopen churches and religious practices wherever and whenever possible.

As we’ve seen…government officials have taken very opportunity to further the leftist agenda of subverting the right to religious freedom that is guaranteed under the First Amendment.  Don’t think for a minute that it has gone unnoticed by these politicians that they have the power to so easily crush something as fundamental as the right to worship. It is not a mere coincidence that the right to worship, freedom of religion, has been so easily crushed. Push back! Support this valuable, essential, right!

  1. Support your local businesses whenever practical.

As I look around the three local communities in the area where I live I see more and more closed local businesses. The lights are going out! The big entities such as Amazon are doing fine…growing actually. But, your local businesses may be suffering. Support those local folks whenever you possibly can. As the larger retailers grow…the power of the average person shrinks…and the potential for government/corporation cooperation/coordination grows. And that ain’t good for lights, liberties, and freedoms…not good for you!

  1. Avoid Facebook, Instagram, Google and other big tech firms as much as you can.

There is a whole host of reason for this. But, the number one troubling reason that I see right now…intelligence. No, not the kind that means “smart.” The kind that means “information.”

It is scary right now, horrifying actually, the amount of information that these tech giants are gathering.  Yes, they are gathering personal information of every kind on individuals. But, far more troubling…they are gathering massive and I mean MASSIVE- amounts of information at the macro level. And with that information they can very, very accurately predict what populations, or sub-groups, will do. Specifically what a reaction would be to any number of actions imposed upon the populace. AND THAT IS VERY DANGEROUS! ! !

Why? You already know the answer. With that kind of information comes power…power over people…control, control of the worse kind. Power at an unreal level…the kind of which we’ve never seen before. It is terminal cancer infecting us. It is killing our freedom to choose faster than anyone ever dreamed possible. And by law or coercion…all of that information is available to the government…government bureaucrats and the politicians.

The more you use any social media website, any major search engine, and any online retailer, any online news service, any debit/credit card, you add to that information base. And each and every day their power grows…and our freedoms shrink.

Stop thinking globally…think locally. Actually, stop thinking/acting nationally…think/act locally. Don’t feed the beasts if you can help it.

Playing the Game…

note: originally posted August 2015 – written by Mike (guest writer)

The politicians are at it again, or I guess I should say “at it some more”, since the political season never ends. More  lies, more promises (that’s redundant), and more finger pointing. Time magazine (which I do not read) called it the “Game of Thrones”. On their cover (August 2015) they have a picture of Bush the Younger juxtaposed with William the Slippery. What a pair of jokers… and the joke has been on “We the People”. The connected class plays the game of thrones and we get to be the serfs.

What does this have to do with prepping? Read on…

Time got one thing right, life is a game, isn’t it? We all want to win, right? To win, or even to play well, we need to know the rules. Do the rules you learned growing up still apply? I’d say not much.

I grew up in the 50’s and 60’s, which was a strange dichotomy. The crazy “free love”, sex, drugs, and Rock n Roll 60’s, colliding with the Ozzie and Harriet 50’s. Worse yet, my parents were shaped by the late 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s. Both parents lived through the Depression, then WW2, and those two events shaped their lives. I was brought up to vote, pay your taxes, work hard, and learn all I could. College was encouraged, but my Dad made it clear he learned more from “the school of hard knocks” than any classroom. I was told things like:

  • “Never be afraid of a little honest dirt and sweat.”
  • “If you say ‘I can’t’, you will always be right”

If you are reading this blog you might have heard the same sort of stuff from your parents and teachers. I heard more of the same from my Marine DI’s:

  • “Second place is last place.”
  • “Pain is weakness leaving the body.”
  • “To err is human, to forgive divine, neither is USMC policy”

Are those still the rules? Is that what is taught in school today? Is that what most parents teach their kids?

Yes, I’m a dinosaur, and if I had a PC bone in my body, I’d break it myself. It seems to me the rules have changed, and not for the better. Today, everyone gets a trophy, teachers can’t grade in red ink, and colleges have free speech zones…except only politically correct speech is authorized. What crap!

Here is where this has lead us…according to data released by the census bureau in the fourth quarter of 2011:

  • 2 percent of Americans received benefits from one or more government programs. That’s 151 million out of 306 million population (2011). Yes, that includes 49,901,000 on Social Security, which they (we) theoretically paid for. Did we really pay for it? Yeah sure, but the money we paid has been squandered by the politicians.
  • Most of these same people are among the 46,440,000 on Medicare. Will I soon find myself forced onto Medicare? Yes. Do I want some money from the Social Security Ponzi fund I’ve paid into for all these years? YOU BET I DO. Will I get it? Maybe.
  • Consider also the 49,073,000 on food stamps.
  • The 23,228,000 in the Women, Infants and Children program.
  • The 20,223,000 getting Supplemental Security Income.
  • There were also 13,433,000 who lived in public or subsidized rental housing.
  • Then the 5,098,000 who got unemployment (all 99+ weeks of it).
  • The figures also include 364,000 who got railroad retirement benefits, which I assume they actually did work for.
  • There were also 3,178,000 who got veterans’ benefits, and as a veteran, I know we really worked, sweated, and sometimes bled for those benefits.

In total, the Census Bureau estimated 151,014,000 Americans (out of a population then estimated to be 306,804,000) received benefits from one or more government programs during the last three months of 2011.

This is only the money spent inside the US, and given to individuals. There are hundreds of billions more dollars spent in corporate welfare and foreign aid. Pay for play, and it will not go away.

Is this sustainable? Hell no, and some of us know it.

The new rules? Money for nothing and your checks for free. (Apologies to Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits)

Free money for the politicians, and free money for the sheeple. Our money.

Do I blame those who receive these benefits? No, because it’s human nature to do what is perceived as in their own best interest. Free stuff is hard to argue with.

Those are the new free money rules, most of which suck, but here is the solution:

Vote for the guy (or gal) with the “R” after their name they will fix everything, right? After all, they said so! Over and over again they’ve said so. “We will restore fiscal responsibility, balance the budget, close the borders, support the troops, follow the Constitution, blah, blah, blah”… Personally, I don’t believe a word of it. It’s all BS. You don’t believe the “R’s” either? Can’t trust them?

How about the other solution?

Vote for the other folks with the “D” after their name and they will ride to the rescue. After all, they said so too! Over and over again they’ve said so. Every year the “D’s” say to their constituents, “Your life sucks, the man is keeping you down, you have no chance, but if you vote for us it will all be better… next year.” How can you hear that from “the man” for 20, 30, 50 or more years, and not catch on to the scam? Free stuff.

Did you buy the line about voting for Hope and Change? That plan has sure worked well, they gave you hope and now what you have left is the small change. What actually changed? The name on the door.

Big government is the rule, so shut up and get back to work, someone has to pay those taxes. If you don’t believe  either the “D’s” or the “R’s” what can you do? Keep voting and expecting something different? Why would people do that? Because for most people, the scam still works, they continue to reflexively vote for the same bunch, D or R, year after year. Different promises, different faces, and all lies. Have any of those promises, other than more free stuff, come to pass? Will any of those promises ever be fulfilled? Is there anyone who will really work to decrease the spending, intrusion, and regulation? Will anyone actually “do the right thing” while increasing our personal Liberty? Not likely. Not without being forced to do so.

It is obvious that the “D’s” or “R’s” are the only parties who have a chance of getting elected, even though there isn’t a dimes worth the difference between them. The new boss is the same as the old boss, AND if you have the correct status, it’s oh so sweet. THOSE are the rules which have NOT changed. These are the same rules we’ve been playing by for at least 70 (or maybe 170) years. “Connected = easy street.”

The Congress as a whole has an approval rating in the neighborhood of 10%, and yet 95% of them get re-elected every time. How does that happen? It happens not only because a lot of people buy into the scam, it happens because so many are bought and paid for by the scam. It’s hard to argue with free stuff.

Here is my solution to the problem, and it’s where the “prepper” part comes in…

If asked, one of the attributes most prepper’s claim is a clearer vision of reality. The ability to see and deal with reality is supposed to make us different than the average sheeple. Part of being prepared is directly related to recognizing that bad things can happen. We have a plan, we have food, a water source, weapons, etc. It’s usually quite a long list. You plan the work, work the plan, to save your ass.

The reality many of us have not recognized is that we are really, really helpless. When it comes to constructive change and influencing the government, there is really almost nothing we can do. Even at the local level it is almost impossible. How many emails have you written? How many politicians have you contacted? Letters to the editor? PTA meetings? Town halls? Donations. Vote, vote, vote… and what has it achieved? Nothing, in fact things are getting worse. So what can we do?

It’s simple, we can stop feeding the beast.

Oh, you can still go to meetings, write the letters, make the calls, and continue to vote, but try doing a few new things as well:

  • Minimize your taxable income.
  • No more political donations.
  • Vote, but NEVER vote for the incumbent.
  • While I would never suggest doing something illegal, I do suggest doing whatever you can to legally cut down on the support you give to government.
  • Let your city, county, state, and the federal government do with less. Can you barter? Can you take Uber instead of a taxed and regulated cab?
  • Can you drive across a border for a lower sales tax? Can you move to another county or state and lower your property taxes?
  • Be creative and find new ways to suck them dry.
  • Can you retire early?
  • Are YOU eligible for some sort of benefits? If so take them! Why not keep as much of your own money as you can, and get some of the free stuff that is being offered?

There are hundreds of ways to stop feeding the beast, and carve a little more off for yourself. Remember, there is no such thing as a “loophole” in the law, the law was written that way for someone’s benefit, and it might as well be you. Living a minimalist lifestyle does not have to mean living in a tent (unless you want to). What I think it should mean is minimizing your contribution. Stop throwing chum in the water! Let the feeding frenzy die from starvation. The cockroaches in the bureaucratic woodwork depend on US. We can’t fumigate them, we can’t step on them, and they won’t just go away, so my alternative is to starve them.

By some estimates the government at all levels wastes as much as 30% of what it takes in. THAT IS OUR MONEY THEY ARE WASTING! Paying your “fair share” means paying not one dime more than you absolutely must. Keep your money in your family, and use it wisely. I believe the most likely SHTF scenario is for an economic Armageddon. If I’m right, the sooner the economy resets, the less pain we will all feel.

Could this “depression” lead to war, famine, plague and a more complicated SHTF scenario? You damn well know it. Play their game to your benefit. Play the game of selfish preservation NOW, before the SHTF. You know you can’t feed all the starving masses in an SHTF situation, so why endanger your survival by doing it now?


By starving the beast and carving off more for you and yours, you can better prepare and maybe make things come to a head sooner.

Sooner begun, sooner done.
