SitRep – 7/23/2019

Here I go again…more spewing of opinion on what I see is happening. Lucky for you I am writing SitReps less than one a month.

Not a whole lot has changed since the last SitRep (6/16/2019), mostly the situation has just continued to decline and deepen.

I had a conversation yesterday with a friend I have had for over 40 years. She asked me how much more time we had left…specifically, would the country last another 5 – 10 years. Much to her disappointment I gave her my standard/stock (albeit, correct) answer.

We could last another 50 – 100 years, or we could collapse in the morning.

Yeah, I know…Why is she still my friend?

However, that is my standard answer and it hasn’t changed in the last 6 – 7 years…and probably won’t. Well, not until we get a “singularity” point, or some other event on a significant enough scale that will affect our standing as a country. And yes, we could wake up on any given morning have experienced one…and see that the country is crashing around us. For right now…we are just a slow train wreck…but a wreck all the same.

Okay, on with the SitRep…

Today I will cover three primary areas of concern:

  • Economy
  • Deepfake AI
  • Violence
Economy –

In my post FAQ – 7/5/2019 I talked about the shrinking middle class…it is disappearing, and has been since 1970…at an alarming rate. Well, on 7/16 CNBC released an article that talked about the middle-class and how they have a very sour outlook on the economy and their future. And that attitude has taken a noticeable downturn in the last six months. In one report the middle-class rated their ability to achieve the American Dream at only a “C”. And what would your parents have said to you if you came home with only C’s on your report card?

Another related report they covered stated that half of the middle-class feared a major recession coming within a year. That Stock Market Crash is a concern, threat, risk for preppers during grid-down.represents an increase of 10% in the last year alone. Their “feeling” was that we are due for a major recession…or worse. That’s HALF of them expect that!

And here was their response to prepare for that feared coming major recession:

  • Refinance their mortgage to free up money for them to spend.
  • Reduce their retirement contributions.

So there you have it…middle-class folks fear a major recession is coming and want to prepare for it. They intend to do that preparation by going deeper into debt and reducing their ability to retire. Just how smart is that?

Notice, there was no mention of reducing spending. To stabilize finances without reducing spending is impossible…simply impossible. Kinda sounds exactly like the federal government…spend more money, borrow more money, kick the “responsibility can” down the road. Wonderful!

This is one of those subjects that simply makes me furious…the debt ceiling. The debt ceiling is a monetary number that the government is not allowed to exceed in their borrowing. It is designed to keep the President and Congress in-check as far as fiscal irresponsibility is concerned. In other words…when the President/Congress seeks to borrow money they are constrained by law (i.e. the debt ceiling). Once that debt ceiling is reached Congress has to approve an increase in the debt ceiling before the government can borrow more money to spend. And this President and Congress are out of fiscal control…and they just crossed a red line.

The whole reason for having Congress approve an increase in the debt ceiling is accountability and compliance with the law. When they go through the process of raising the debt ceiling for a specific dollar amount the President has to formally request it and Congress has to formally vote on it for approval. That gives the public full knowledge of what is happening and puts the responsibility/accountability on the President and Congress. Not a perfect system to be sure, but at least one that keeps us, US citizens, informed and allows us to use that information at the ballot box.

But this President and this Congress decided that responsibility/accountability is not something they want to be saddled with. They worked together (called bi-partisanship) to not just raise the debt ceiling…but to put no limits on how high the debt can be raised during that time. Yup! You read that right. Suspending the debt ceiling means there is no limitation on the amount of money that can be borrowed by the federal government. Yes sir…whatever they borrow during the period of the suspension simply gets added to the national debt without having been voted on, approved, identified, and without anyone being held accountable…and the public being is kept in the dark about it. Nice job Mr President and members of Congress!!

Oh, but not to worry…this isn’t the first time the devious “debt ceiling suspension” trick has been used against the American public…no sir. Most recently the President and Congress did the same thing in February of 2018. Yup, they did a one-year suspension of the debt ceiling just last year. Maybe that is why this President and this Congress have borrowed more money per year than any other President & Congress in the history of the country!

This President is averaging nearly 35% more annual borrowing than the previous President. Ah yes…how sweet…the art of the deal. And that deal making is financially and economically tanking us faster than at any other time in the history of the country. Isn’t it great to see Dems and Repubs, Congress and President, working together so well?!?!?!?!?!

Technology: DeepFake & AI –

In my SitRep on 6/20/2019 I shared some disturbing information about the use of DeepFake technology utilizing Artificial Intelligence (AI). I hope you read it. Well, several cyber-security companies have recently released information concerning the use of DeepFake technology in the corporate world. Yeah, sooner or later it was going to happen.

So here is what is happening…a Chief Financial Officer (CFO) gets a call from the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) requesting an emergency money transfer. And yes…the “CEO” is a person impersonating the real CEO on the pone using DeepFake audio technology to sound exactly like the real CEO. With the help of AI, the DeepFake software has “learned” to sound just like the real CEO. And the amounts stolen through these money transfers are in the millions.

So you think the potential damage of what this technology could do would be limited…right? Wrong!

The potential damage that this technology can achieve in the corporate world is limitless. Imagine someone impersonating a CEO released an audio statement stating that their devices had been infiltrated by the Chinese and all the user’s personal and financial information was hijacked and it is now in the hands of the Chinese government. And, everyone was to immediately discontinue using their device and no “fixes” would be released, the company was declaring bankruptcy, and all the employees were not to come into work until further notice.

Pretty bad, eh?

Now, imagine that company CEO was head of Apple. What would the fallout be? What would happen to the price of Apple stock? What would happen to their company operations?

I watched a video of former President Obama calling President Trump a “dip st!t”…yes, you read that right…a video and in his own words Obama called him that name. How horrible!!! And worse…inciting.

Ah, only problem…it was a DeepFake video produced by Jordan Peel…and it was 100% DeepFake. Let me state clearly…I could not tell it was a fake. Be very, very cautious in the coming months about what you see and hear in the media.

About 10 days ago I read where they are now looking at making whole movies via DeepFake technology. Yup, entire movies with actors that we all know. Problem is…it won’t be the actors you are watching…it will be their DeepFake impersonations. Yeah, Imagine a young Sylvester Stallone playing the role of James Bond 007 with Michelle Obama as his Bond Girl. Yeah…yuck! But, it is coming!

Well, not entirely true…it is already here. There are already “remix” videos out there, but generally limited to only scenes, not entire movies. And the scenes look very good from what I’ve seen. Too good. So, it’s only limited to movies…no big deal…right?

Ah, what happens when those DeepFake videos become news releases from CEO’s…or worse…the President of the United States?

Can you imagine a video showing President Trump in the Situation Room secretly declaring war on Russia? And it shows him clearly telling his Generals, you can hear him plainly, that we will launch a full nuclear strike on Russia in an hour…and that video hits that Internet?

What other devious and dangerous ways could this DeepFake media technology endanger you, your family, our country?

Prepare yourselves for it…or not…and suffer the consequences if you don’t.

Violence –

Democrats and Republicans see violence coming! Yup, the Washington Examiner wrote an article recently based on a couple of reports that showed that 91% of all Democrats see violence coming, Republicans were at a 67%. That averages out to 80% of Americans expect to see violence soon.

And where exactly do they expect to see that violence coming from? That is a key to pay attention to.

The answer is…political supporters of each party. Yup, these folks expect to see violence at the hands of political party supporters. No, there was no distinction of which party…both party’s supporters are expected to commit the violence. The respondents are claiming “politically charged rhetoric” will be the motivation to commit the violence. Do you doubt that? Yeah, I didn’t think so. Just look at the recent Twitter wars and rally speeches and media releases.

So…enjoy the two-party system, enjoy the tough talk, enjoy the call to action, enjoy the political rhetoric. And then be prepared to deal with the after-affects.

I am telling you point blank…”VIOLENCE” is the #1 threat/risk we face in emergencies, disasters, and certainly in grid-down…and now it’s coming to our daily life. Be prepared…or suffer.

If you have been reading my website posts over the years you know I have an issue with cops misbehaving…SC cop plants taserCop brutally kicks handcuffed woman.especially when they shoot and kill unarmed citizens…or choke them to death for no reason…or punch and kick them when they are handcuffed and they are petite handcuffed women and the cop is a huge 220lb musclehead, etc.

You also know that I make a big differentiation between LEOs (law enforcement officers) and Peace Officers. The names should be sufficient to understand the difference.

And that being said…you should not commit violence against either while they are doing their legal and lawful responsibilities…period!

Yesterday I saw several reports of NYPD offices getting buckets of water thrown on them. Yes, the officers were on duty. Yes, they were making arrests. And yes, bystanders threw buckets of water on them. And in one case threw a bucket at an officer and hit him in the head with it. That is totally unacceptable!


Because today it is buckets of water being thrown on them to show disrespect…what about tomorrow, or the next day, or next week, or next month?

To their credit the officers ignored the attacks and didn’t take the action that there were entitled to by law. After all…it is assault and battery on a police officer…even if it is a bucket of water. The officers showed amazing and admirable restraint.

But, what about the next time? The next time is it a brick, a bucket of urine or feces, or a bucket of cement? What about if the next time the officer is a musclehead SS type…and shoots the water thrower?

This has potential disaster written all over if it becomes a fad or trend!

And here is an interesting side tidbit…did you notice that they were NYPD officers? And who is running New York City? Yeah, a radical communist/socialist mayor. Nuf said.

Summary –

With everything that is happening in the country/world right now, the single most important thing you can do is be informed so you can be better prepared.

  • If you want to learn to be better aware of hat is happening <click here>
  • If you want to be better prepared to mitigate the threat/risk of violence <click here>
  • If you want to better understand what is happening in our country right now…and where we are headed <click here>

I can’t force you to be prepared, I can’t even force you to see what is happening, or to connect the dots…even if I lay it out plainly for you. What you see, believe, and do is completely and totally up to you. And that is as it should be. I don’t want to change that.

What I would like you to do is consider that you are seeing in the country/world today…then think it through…ponder it. Then I would like you to assess what are the threats/risks to your family. And then finally…what commonsense, reasonable, well-grounded, and balanced steps can you take to mitigate those threats and risks.

If you want to learn more about identifying risks and threats…and how to mitigate them <click here>.

But, please, I am begging you…do not ignore the warning signs that are all around us. Tough times are here, really tough times are coming. The threats and risks are real. And just as real are the ways to prepare to avoid them and/or the best ways to deal with them. It is all about keeping your family as safe as possible during bad times.

SitRep – 6/16/2019 (Part #2)

Solution Summary –

Now this is the part that I’ve been really looking forward to! And before I get too far along I want to share a few thoughts first…kinda like to set the stage properly. And before I do that, if you didn’t read the original SitRep of 6/15, I am going to suggest that you read the SitRep that is generating this Part #2 post. <click here to read it>


#1 – I am just a fairly normal person. I have no special insights that come from divine sources. I have had no dreams or visions of the future, especially not concerning what I write in this post.

#2 – I am speaking of my own views and opinions and what I can do to make things a little better. In other words…these solutions are based on what I think I can/should do. Plus a thought or two for you to consider.

#3 – Please take everything I say and ponder it a lot before you consider taking the same or similar action. What is right for me may not be right for you. You have to do the right things for you.

#4 – Please provide feedback…especially if you think I am off the mark. If you see me going down the wrong path (in your opinion) then talk to me about it. We might be able to find a better solution working together…undoubtedly.

OK, that is out of the way. Now, let’s talk about some general solutions to what I outlined in the 6/16 SitRep.

First and foremost…stay away from fringes. In other words…moderation in all things. And yet another way to look at it…no extremes, no radical(isms), no abnormal behavior. Yeah, I know, that can be very subjective. But you my friends are intelligent well-grounded folks and you know what I am talking about. Think “balance”.

Example: Not ever using a bank. That is radical and extreme…and no common sense to it. There is nothing wrong with using a bank. Now, depending on it for everything and having all your liquid/cash resources in a bank is just as extreme. Find a good balance for you.

Next, use common sense. If you are reading this article on this website you are probably pretty intelligent, pretty well educated (not necessarily “schooled”), and pretty well grounded. That implies that you have a heavy dose of common sense. Use it! If something doesn’t seem to make sense…well, it’s probably nonsense. If something sounds too good to be true…it is.

Example: Someone that you know tells you they have had a dream that you should put all your money into dandelion oil futures. Does that make any sense at all? Nope! First, making an investment decision on someone’s dream is plain stupid. Investing in something as off-beat as dandelion oil is pretty far-fetched as well. But, futures in dandelion oil…come on! Really? Use your God-given common sense.

Have a firm foundation for your beliefs. I wrote an article back in 2016 “Are you well grounded?” that article touches on this topic pretty decently.  <click here>

But, the bottom line is this…know what you believe and why. The “why” can be tricky. If you base your foundation on situational ethics your foundation is weak…made of sand. But, if your foundation is built of rock…well, it’s solid.

Example: Is it okay to kill people? Most folks will say “no!”…but why would they (including you and me) say no? For me…it violates the 6th Commandment (of the 10 Commandments). Why do I put so much stock in the 10 Commandments? Because I believe in God. So my foundation is rock solid…it won’t change based on situational ethics. Now, is it ever okay to kill someone? Yes. A God-given right is the right to defend ourselves. So taking a life in self-defense is acceptable. What about war? War is another example of self-defense. What about defending our family? Yes, the scriptures and Prophets tell us we are responsible to protect our families. So you get the point.

A last example would be the Governor of a state, President of a country, or leader of a military unit simply giving an order to kill someone who was no threat, or it is otherwise illegal to do so. You then would have a moral obligation to refuse to kill that person. And if your foundation is built on a rock…you will be willing to accept the consequences of your decision.

Now…let’s get into specifics for each category of the original 6/16 SitRep.

Flood & Food –

First off, if you have food storage the flood issues wouldn’t affect you anyways. But, that being said the best way to avoid reacting inappropriately to this kind of issue is Situational Awareness (SA). Knowing that the vast majority of crops that are being affected are corn and soy beans. So going out and panic buying a year’s supply of wheat wouldn’t solve anything. And most of the soy beans affected are normally exported as well. So the panic of flood and the prospect of food shortages declines from panic to mild concern.

When you hear of catastrophes, but before you panic react, know what you are dealing with and its true effect on your world. That is good SA!  A series of articles to help you know more about Situational Awareness, and how to use it, can be found at <click here>

Financial –

The #1 way to be objective about economic and financial situations/issues is to understand that everyone that talks about it in the media has an agenda. And they, along with politicians, are seeking money and power. So when you hear about economic data the first question would be something along the lines of…”If I take this information as true, and act on it, who benefits the most in terms of money and power?”

So, when you hear that unemployment is at historic lows…what do you believe and what do you do about it?

Let’s employ my question…”If historically low unemployment numbers are true, who benefits the most in terms of money and power from those low unemployment numbers?” Answer that one honestly and objectively and you start to understand where those numbers come from and why. Once that is done then you can look at what you do, or don’t do, in regards to that information.

Now, if I am right about the economy and financial systems being in trouble do you believe it and what do you do about it? Well, for me and my family we do the following:

1 – Get out of debt. Debt is a cruel master that can cause serious trouble for you in everyday life. Generally speaking debt would not affect you very much in terms of emergencies or disasters…unless your ability to recover from either is reduced, or eliminated. Meaning…you don’t have an emergency fund to repair damages, replace items, or buy necessities. For a grid-down event…I don’t see debt being a significant problem, at least initially. If you have a lot of debt let’s say after an EMP event, how would that negatively affect you? My opinion…not much. As time goes on the lust for power and money will grow. And, if you are in debt (i.e. mortgage) and can’t pay it…you could have your house repossessed and your family is now on the street. Same could be true for anything that is held as security for a debt. And worse of all…same could be true if you can’t pay taxes. You have real-estate taxes wherein you could lose your home. You have income taxes where you could be put in jail. And one I want you to really think about…if you have a car loan, and it goes unpaid, you could lose your transportation.

2 – Have a cash emergency fund. The amount is dependent on your individual situation. And yes, I mean cash…not a bank balance. But yes, you can have funds in a bank…that is fine. But, have a cash emergency fund available.

3 – Have an IRA/401k. You don’t know, I don’t know, no one knows for sure, when the system crashes. Yes, it will crash but you aren’t smart enough to know when…I know I’m not. But, you do know that you will retire…prepare for it. A self-funded, self-directed retirement fund is imperative. If you don’t have one, and refuse to get one, you are setting yourself up for a disaster at some point in your life. We use Fidelity and for growth we use an S&P index based mutual fund. And please…don’t spout off nonsense about stocks, mutual funds, and such gibberish. They have a good history of performance over a long period of time. Can they go bad? Sure. Will they go bad? Absolutely. And we don’t have a clue as to when. Till they do…use them to your advantage! And prepare for what you know has a very high probability of happening…retirement.

4 – Precious metals. Have some, but not too much. Historically precious metals have been a good way to transfer/maintain wealth during difficult times. But, for me personally…precious metals should NOT be viewed as an investment. Precious metals are a commodity NOT a currency. Precious metals are similar to insurance (wealth insurance) they are NOT intended to make you money. Don’t have more than 10% of all your investments in precious metals…ever! Do not own any precious metals until all other seven areas of preparedness priorities are met. <click here>

5 – Pay more attention to macro-economic indicators. Individual tax rates going up or down is a micro indicator. The amount of tax revenue being sucked out of the private sector to the government is a macro indicator. Yes, more income tax flowing out of the private sector into the federal government is bad, very bad. GDP is a micro indicator (albeit a decent one). The annual federal deficit is a macro indicator. Unemployment numbers are a micro indicator. National debt is a macro indicator. I am not saying to ignore micro indicators, just put much more importance on macro indicators. It is the macro indicators that will point more accurately to the true state of the economy and the financial system.

6 – Have access to land that you can grow food on.

War –

It is inevitable…and it is already taking place. We have multiple hot wars right now. While limited in scope, they are shooting wars all the same. And one thing I completely avoided mentioning in the original SitRep is this…in a very real sense we are already at war with Russia…and have been so since 2015 in a noticeable way…digital warfare.

Digital warfare is much more subtle but can be far more effective…and much cheaper to wage. A “David” could slay a “Goliath” in digital warfare and relatively inexpensively. We know pretty conclusively that Russia interfered with, as in “influenced”, the 2016 Presidential election. No, they didn’t get Trump elected. But, we do know that they had a concerted and successful effort via Internet media to influence voters and political topics. We also know that they probably hacked into several states’ voting systems. We have a very good idea that they hacked DNC computers.

Considering the rate of technology growth what do you think they are capable of now, four years later? How about what Russia might do in the 2020 elections? Have no doubt…that kind of activity is warfare just as much as firing a missile at a ship is.

So what has our country’s reaction been? We have launched cyber-attacks and cyber-reconnaissance against Russia…and to a lesser degree China. We are engaged in digital warfare with both of our major world opponents. And if one side begins to lose in a significant way…what do you think the other side will do? If one side’s ability to wage an appropriate cyber based response…what do you think their option(s) would then be? Could digital warfare morph into a shooting war?

OK, now all that being said…what is the solution? Sadly, at the individual level there is virtual no solution for this issue since it is controlled on a national and international level. What you can do is:

1 – Vote for politicians who appear to be least likely to get us into useless wars.

2 – If a useless war begins to take shape, protest against it.

3 – Generally be a well-prepared prepper in case the war (digital or shooting) begins to seriously affect the US.

4 – Voice your opposition to useless war whenever engaging in conversation about it.

Political –

Dang! This issue just plains sucks! I hate trying to come up with suggestions on this one because all politics just sucks and I hate it all. But, I promised I would provide some potential solutions, so here goes…

1 – Base political beliefs on fundamentally correct principles. I base my political beliefs on the Constitution. I am an originalist and a literalist in regards to the Consitution. I believe in the Constitution and Bill of Rights as originally written and intended by the Founding Fathers. If it isn’t in the Constitution, if it is not authorized in the Constitution, then it is not just illegal, it is immoral. If a politician doesn’t support the Constitution as such…then I won’t support the politician. Or, at the very least I will highly criticize them as appropriate.

Examples: The Civil Asset Forfeiture laws are clearly anti-Constitutional, violating a number of the 10 Bill of Rights amendments. Any law that infringes on the right to own a gun is clearly anti-Constitutional. If a politician supports CAF laws or any gun control law…then that politician does NOT support the Constitution nor our founding principles. And that is a huge Red Flag!!

2 – Understand who politicians are. All politicians lust for power and/or money. Yes, even the well-intentioned politicians lust for power…even if it is the power to change things for the better. As we well know through our knowledge of the nature of man…give a man a little power and he always wants more. There is very little in this life that corrupts a soul faster or more completely than power.

When looking at what a politician does or proposes, ask yourself this…Who gains power and money through this proposal or action?

3 – Understand power exists only in one place at a time. When the Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution the vast majority of the power rested with the individual and then the states. Now where does the vast majority of power reside?

As the federal government has grown in power it has shifted from the individual citizen to the federal government. And it has also shifted from the states to the federal government.

Power is not created, it can only shift from one owner to another. The individual (rightful owner) is far more trustworthy with power than the federal government any day! The founders knew that and tried to write the Constitution to prevent the federal government from being as powerful as it is. While their effort was gallant, tireless, and paid for in blood…they failed. The Constitution has become corrupted and we have an all-powerful federal government that makes 1770’s England look passive.

Know when the individual and/or state is losing power to the federal government…and resist it.

4 – Never trust what a politician says. Politicians will say anything to get elected and stay in power. They will also lie to pass their legislation. Watch what a politician does…that will show his character and intentions.

5 – Don’t support the “impeach Trump” effort in any way. Not only is it a political scheme by radical democrats…it is an actual coup. It is an effort by democrats to forcibly remove a sitting President from office outside of the electoral process. Why? Because the democrats want that power. It is nothing more than that…a power struggle. It is NOT a fight of good vs. evil…it is only about the struggle for power.

6 – Pay close attention to what is happening politically. Along with that…”who” is on “what” side of the political spectrum. Your good friend who is a moderate democrat today could well be the radical violent democrat protesting on the street and participating in the coup against Trump tomorrow. And how might that person begin to view your political beliefs? And what might they decide to do about it?

OK, that’s enough for now.

Technology –

One part of technology that I kinda skimmed over in the original SitRep is social media. I didn’t want to get into that subject. But, I think I better state a couple thoughts…maybe just one. Social media is a very dangerous environment. Companies can learn virtually anything about you via your social media activities. And that means any government agency has access to that information as well. Don’t for a moment think that the federal government isn’t monitoring social media…THEY ARE!

The secret police agencies of the federal government (mostly the FBI, CIA, & NSA) monitor every form of social media, record all that activity, create files on individuals containing that activity, and can use it against anyone at any time for any reason. And that means you and I !!!  You cannot hide your social media activity…it’s impossible. You can’t mask it, you cannot trick them, you can’t avoid them tracking you.

I am not telling you to get off all social media…or even reduce your activity. I just want you to be aware of what is FBI & DHS report on rightwing extrmeism and domestic terroristshappening. Remember this…as we’ve clearly seen, the federal government has weaponized the FBI, CIA, NSA, and even the IRS against anyone they view as an “enemy” or “potential terrorist”. Who’s that? <click here> Be aware and decide for yourself how easy you want to make it for them to target you.

Now, generally speaking what is my solution for the problem of technology?

1 – Clearly understand that the purpose of AI, as stated by technology companies, is to replace humans with AI controlled machines. And many of those machines are designed to be robots…some that are eerily similar in appearance to humans, some quite lethal.

2 – Make sure you have the capability to conduct your daily life 100% free of any and all technology.

3 – Make sure your prepping can be 100% technology free.

4 – Do not trust technology, those that are developing it, or especially their so-called mission statements for AI technology.

5 – When you start to see inflammatory statements by high-profile people, especially national leaders, STOP!!!  Think about what they are saying. Does it sound rational and does it make sense? Could it be sourced from a deepfake environment?

People –

This is going to be one area where I undoubtedly will make some folks uncomfortable…others will go completely off their nut. I hope a few find some useful information.

1 – Develop a firm foundation for your belief system. I believe, for me at least, it is Christianity. And I don’t mean some Taliban form of it. And I certainly don’t mean some mushy form of it. For me it is simple…the 10 Commandments, the Golden Rule, and the Beatitudes provide a great foundation. If people would follow those simple, clear, and practical guidelines there would be virtually no problems in the world today.

2 – Do not be a CBB. I coined a new term…Christians Behaving Badly. By this I mean try to live up to #1 all the time. That being said, allow others to believe as they wish. I am not referring to Carte Blanche behavior. What I am referring to is simple…don’t attack others when they don’t agree with your opinion. And when I mean attack…I mean personally attack, demean, criticize, etc…especially publicly. Why? For crying out loud, do I need to explain that!? Ask yourself this, if you find yourself about to be publicly critical of someone you think is wrong on a spiritual subject…is what you are saying helpful to that person or not?

Those that engage in CBB activities are often deluded in to thinking they are being some great advocate for Christ. They are not! They are behaving in a very un-Christian manner.

And there are a few, fortunately very few, who would try and justify their wrong-hearted behavior by saying, “Yeah but Christ contended with so and so, or got violent with the money changers!” Yup, He did…and you are NOT Christ! You do not know the heart of the person you are attacking, you don’t know their intention. Heck…you don’t even know if they misspoke or mistyped! They might be a poor communicator. Or you may have jumped to a wrong conclusion.

Rather than lash out in a manner that would make Satan smile, use your heart and your head. Discuss in a loving manner the principle, your view, and substantiate it through scripture or other authoritative sources.

If you are a Taliban Christian (CBB) try reading Colossians 3:12, Romans 15:5, Galatians 5:22-23 and a long list of other scriptures. But, most of all think about the Golden Rule. Then ask yourself…What are the results of your behavior…for your target…and for you?

If you are a CBB…Stop!

If you encounter CBB treat them like you would any weak-minded, cowardly bully. First, don’t engage them. They are acting this way due to a mental and/or spiritual problem…and you are highly unlikely going to be able to change them. Heck, don’t even try to change them, leave that up to their family, close friends, their spiritual leadership, a professional councilor, etc. Second, support the person they are attacking. Find something about the other person that you can complement them on, agree with them on, or in some other way let them know that they are not alone. A CBB is nothing more than a misguided bully. But, their target needs to know that Christians are good people and don’t behave that way. Defend them publicly, but also reach out to them privately. I’ve seen victims of CBBs get really down due to the attack. Don’t let Satan win! Let good Christians know that other good Christians are there for them…that they are not alone!

3 – Understand democrats and act accordingly. Remember I consider democrats to be Progressives, Liberals, Democrats, and RINOs. Democrats desire to overthrow the US government, via democracy, into a socialist/Communist country…then establish a complete totalitarian regime. They want nothing less!

There are no moderate democrats. ALL members of the democratic party support, directly or in-directly, the same goals and policies. And that includes infanticide. Some democrats are more vocal than others in speaking the truth about their goals…but the support is unanimous…whether they think so or not.

4 – Conservatism is not a good thing. Our Founding Fathers were not conservatives. They were classical liberals.

For the record… “Classical liberalism” is the term used to designate the ideology advocating private property, an unhampered market economy, the rule of law, constitutional guarantees of freedom of religion and of the press, and international peace based on free trade.

Conservatism as it is known today is not classical liberalism. Libertarians are a much closer match to our Founding Fathers. Remove the anarchists that have hijacked part of libertarianism and you would have a nearly perfect match.

Fortunately, many people who claim to be conservatives are actual libertarian in their beliefs. If you add the belief in a civil society to libertarianism (civil-society libertarianism) then you have a match with many people who think they are conservatives.

Think about politicians who claim to be conservatives…do they match the definition of “classical liberalism” or do they distort it? Do they justify variances to it? Or, do they advocate for more law and order vs defending rights and liberties? Do they advocate war, police actions, military interventions, democracy building? Do they defend freedom of religion, regardless of the consequences…or do they vote in favor of reducing religious liberties/rights? Do they favor Civil Asset Forfeiture laws and other violations of due process…or do they support private property and the rule of law?

It is not hard to determine who is a friend of the Constitution and believe in our founding principles…and who are the enemies of the same. Figure out who is who…and who you choose to support politically.

5 – Get to know people for who they really are…not who they say they are. This will be incredibly important as time goes on. It will have the ability to prevent misunderstandings and help avoid being easily deceived by people.

6 – Stick with the scriptures and authorized servants of God. Don’t get sucked into paths that lead away from the gate to heaven. Do not trust in the arm of flesh. Do not get caught up in spiritual fads. Learn the difference between spiritual feelings and emotional feelings. Follow spiritual feelings, question emotional feelings.

7 – Be careful of, leery of, cautious of, people who claim dreams and visions. Many who believe in these things will quote Joel 2:28 from the Bible. And they neglect, maybe purposely ignore, the context and prior verses. Namely who these people will be, what they have to go through, and what type of people they are, and the environment in which it all occurs. And be even more doubtful and disbelieving of what they claim they saw in these visions and dreams (i.e. content).

Why? Because the Bible also tells us to expect false prophets in the last days. And what is the purpose of false prophets? To lead people astray from God…into Satan’s grasp.

So are there people who are legitimately entitled to messages from God through dreams and visions? Absolutely, 100% there are. Who are they? People who have the right to such. Namely, everyone has the right to receive guidance from God for their personal life. Parents have the right to guidance from God for their family. The leader of a congregation same thing. An entire church, same thing. There are people who are authorized servants of God who are perfectly entitled to receive messages from God via dreams and visions. My faith states as a core belief… “We believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues, and so forth.”

The key to this point is this…is the message from God (i.e. spiritual), or a sincere/honest desire of the person (i.e. emotional), or nefarious (i.e. commercial venture or lust for power)? And the only way to determine that is a process.

First- is the message clearly supported by scripture?

Second- is the message clearly supported by current authorized servants of God?

Third- is there a “right” to receive this message, are they authorized to receive the message?

Fourth- is this message and its delivery method free from commercial gain?

Fifth- is this message free of any shift of power, or God-given right, from yourself to another?

Any “no” is a huge Red Flag!

If all five answers are “yes” then the message is probably good. But, this is only a start to figuring out if the message is from God or not. A good question to follow-up the above five with (if you’ve received five yes answers)…”Why this person? What makes them so special for God to speak through them to me? Why didn’t God speak directly to me?”

If you have others saying that so and so is special, has a special path to God, sees visions/dreams, and then they testify that they are from God…Red Flag! You may be deceived into believing the person testifying vs. testing the validity of the message itself.

Yes, I am urging much caution in this area. There has been an alarming increase in the numbers of people being led astray by false prophets in the last 10 years. Please don’t be one of these that put your trust in someone, or your belief in someone, that is a false prophet.

Now, conversely…if you have someone teaching messages from scripture or if you have an authorized servant of God talking to you about things that are corroborated in scripture…you are probably on safe ground. But, be safe…kneel in prayer to God with an honest and sincere heart, asking if what you are hearing is true. God will not fail you when it comes to revealing truth. The Comforter will bear witness. Just make sure it is the Comforter and not your emotions.

Solutions Summary –

We are in the last days. We are experiencing wars and the probability of more wars grows almost daily. There are some very bad people in our world trying to do many bad things. The US government is no longer a government of, or for, the people. Financially we are on very unstable ground. Wicked forms of government are taking root and getting stronger. People’s hearts are failing them and becoming cold and hard. Calamities and chaos is all around us.

At the same time…there are some incredible people out there doing amazing things, selfless acts of kindness, pouring out mercy, and miracles occurring. We have some of the best and sweetest souls on earth that we have ever seen. Opportunities to prepare, help others, and gather useful information has never been greater.

Many people I talk with are experiencing nothing short of miracles in their lives. They are doing God’s work and spreading His word. People are leaving old ways and embracing God’s plan by the tens of thousands each moth, if not each week. Technology is allowing more people to hear God’s messages more than at any time in the history of the world.

We have more opportunities to help others, to be kind to others, to minister to others, and to be His children than can be imagined. We need but to seize those opportunities.

I ask of you a few simple things:

1 – Learn the principles of preparedness.

2 – Become prepared and ready to help you family, neighbors, and community.

3 – Grow closer to God.

4 – Grow closer to your family.

5 – Build a strong foundation of beliefs.

Remember a couple of things:

1 – It’s never the wrong time to do the right thing.

2 – The harder right is worth more than the easier wrong.


The storm is coming…sooner than many think. Please be prepared for all that is to come. You won’t regret it.


Note: I am not expert. I am just a guy sharing his opinions and views with you. I hope in some small way I’ve helped.

SitRep – 6/16/2019

Introduction –

It has been a very long time since I did any new original articles and even longer since a SitRep has appeared on the site. But, that changes today! Why? Because a SitRep is needed, sorely needed. I started writing this SitRep on Saturday morning, finished it late Sunday…with lots of editing during the process. I didn’t want to write it too quickly after the most recent bombing in the Gulf, and I didn’t want to publish it too quickly and not get the right material in it. So here we go…

But, I want to answer a popular question first…

Why has there been little in the way of new website content? That is simple…I’m building the house my wife and I are going to retire in (January 2020). I started clearing and prepping the building site in late February. I just got back from a 5-week stint where I accomplished about 70% of the siding, roughed in the electrical, and completed the utility shed along with a lot of the infrastructure to a nearly usable point. And doing that by yourself when you are 64 years old ain’t easy! Everything takes more time…and plenty of Aleve each day.

One of the benefits to this time building the house is solitude. I have lots of time to think, ponder, and reflect since my wife is 320 miles away. Another benefit is no TV and no proverbial talking heads trying to sound important as well as knowledgeable…and almost always failing. And yet another positive aspect…I am able to read “news” on my schedule and as in-depth as I want. As the last two trips (5-weeks & 6 weeks respectively) have unfolded I have seen some very serious trends developing…and I am becoming ever increasingly concerned. Seriously concerned.

Now, one of the things that I’ve also been thinking about are “people.” But, in a slightly different way than you might be thinking. I’ve also had people ask for more solution oriented SitRep posts. I’ve even had a few folks express their…well…let’s just say disappoint that some of my SitRep posts seem fatalistic. They appear to think that I am somehow suggesting that they do nothing about the current world/national situation. That one surprised me. So, this SitRep will be my normal view/opinion of what’s happening and more details on a “solution”…or more accurately “solutions”.

And…of course I will probably step on a few toes in the process. And that should come as no surprise. If I was simply trying to make ya’ll happy I wouldn’t be honest…I would just be another target-audience pandering website.

And once again…if you are not willing to read this entire post to the end…including the “Summary/Solution” (Part #2) please don’t read any further. And yes, this is going to be a fairly long SitRep…not a simple fluff piece…be prepared to read a bunch. And sorry, I am not putting in pretty pictures for entertainment purposes.

So are you ready to rumble??????!!!!!!!

Flood & Food –

I figured I better get this one out of the way right off the bat.

I am not concerned about the current flooding in the US as it applies to food production. The US is a very large country with many areas able to produce the food that is being affected in the Mississippi flood plain. While individual farmers are facing terrible conditions, crops wiped out, cropland unusable for this growing season, etc…the nation as a whole is not suffering the same fate. As such, I don’t see a significant and worrisome condition as it pertains to available food due to flood conditions.

In a strange way the reduction in food exports to China due to the tariff wars has to a degree mitigated the reduction in food production due to abnormal flooding this year. 

Financial –

He we go again! If you were to listen to one particular group of financial “experts” you would think our country has never been in better shape financially/economically. Yeah, and it is motivated by, and originates from, a political viewpoint. But, if we are in such great shape as a country…

1 – Why do 60% of US citizens have mental anxiety and/or physical stress over their financial condition according to a recent poll? And especially when 55% approve of Trump’s handling of the economy?

2 – Why is private debt reaching an all-time high?

3 – Why are annual federal budget deficits running at record levels?  Especially considering that tax money is flowing out of the private sector (citizens and companies) to the federal government at historic levels?

4 – Why is the national debt skyrocketing the last couple of years? Well, actually for a couple of decades now? But, I am more concerned about the later year figures.

5 – Why is GDP softening and so dramatically falling below projections/expectations?

6 – Why is the Federal Reserve making it public that they are considering lowering interest rates?

7 – Why is the IMF announcing a softening in the US economy and reducing its projections of US economic growth?

8 – Why are new and existing home sales dropping? Why are pending home sales dropping? (Yes, according to national NAR statistics.)

I could go on but you get the idea. Now, if you are a political ideologue you either applaud my questions/implications or you think I am full of crap. Yes, that implies I am calling you a Trump hater or a Trump lover. And you would be dead wrong! I am simply pointing out substantial financial/economic information that objectively clarifies where we are financially/economically as a country. And my friends………it ain’t good!

The #1 concern of mine is “debt”…and that means private and public debt. Both are at record levels! And the private debt quality is getting lower. That means a combination of amount of and days that payments are delinquent, and it includes the amount of sub-prime debt. Those two figures, and trends, are in critical territory as far as I am concerned…and getting worse by the week.

And what happened the last time debt became this much of an issue combined with a weakening housing market? I am very, very concerned about the state of the US economy and our overall financial situation. I think it could tumble very easily. And when it does (notice I didn’t say “if”) it will go down hard and fast. I believe the probability of that happening has increased significantly over the last year and is growing more unstable by the week.

War –

This is one that I’ve not talked a whole lot about in the past…but now I must.

First, let’s talk reality…we’ve been at war continuously for nearly 20 years. The longest time period of US war footing in the history of the United States! And more to the point…What does the United States have to show for it? We’ve lost thousands and thousands of American military lives in that time frame. Tens of thousands more have been gravely injured and lost limbs, etc. Tens of thousands of families have been destroyed due to repeated deployments to war zones. Veteran and active duty suicides are at record highs. Conservative figures place the current suicide rate at a minimum of 20 per day….every single day we have our military folks killing themselves. That means more of our military people are dying from the aftermath of war than the war itself.

Next, reality check…What have we gained for 20 years of war? Well, we completely destroyed Iraq and hundreds of thousands of civilians died in the process. We opened that country up to one of the biggest scourges that this world has ever seen…ISIS. And we rained destruction down on Afghanistan…as if you could tell since it was a desolate country to begin with. We eliminated al-Qaeda and beat back the Taliban…just for the country to be ruled over by war lords and corrupt politicians. And then to have the Taliban reemerge as we withdraw.  Then we went after Syria. Again…our military crushed them as they were asked to do. But, what did we accomplish? Did we change their leadership? No. Did a whole lot of civilians die? Yes. Did we make the country/region ripe for ISIS? Yes. Did we eliminate ISIS? For the most part, but they still exist and are still operational in some limited area in Syria. And tell me again…what else did we accomplish in Syria? And yes, I could go on and on referencing a long list of other countries where the so-called “fight against terrorism” continues. And what could you state has been our significant accomplishments in those many conflicts?

And now the toughest question…Realistically, can you honestly say that our accomplishments over the last nearly two decades of continuous war warrant the horrendous cost to the lives of our military men and women?

Now, factor in the trillions and trillions of dollars spent to rain down all this destruction -the trillions and trillions that our federal government borrowed- and ask yourself this, “Besides the terrible cost in lives…was it all worth the $’s spent?”

My God…I hope you answered a resounding “No!” to the last two questions.

If you can’t be honest enough with those two questions through a “No!” answer, then the rest of this post will be of absolutely no value to you and I urge you to read no further.

As we look at the potential of yet another hot war (i.e. Iran) we can see ourselves being able to crush them militarily…but their terrorist activity would increase significantly because Iran will not go down quietly. And remember, they clearly won the last time we engaged them (1980), and they directly killed hundreds of our troops in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria (2003 – 2018) at relatively minor cost. And there is a wildcard when going after Iran in a shooting war…Russia. What will/can they do in supporting their close ally Iran? If Russia abandons Iran they lose all hope of influence, and credibility, in that region…and I don’t see Russia willing to accept that.

Now let’s talk about war with China. And please…only reality talk. I don’t want to factor in anyone’s dream or vision of some fantasy in this regards. There are other venues for that, but not here.

What has happened the last two times when we slapped tough financial sanctions on an Asia country? Simple answer…war. In 1949 sanctions went into effect against the Soviet Union and its allies. (Don’t forget, a large swath of the old Soviet Union [Russia] was in Asia.) So what happened? In 1950 the Korean War broke out, and shortly thereafter Vietnam. In 1940 the US imposed sanctions on Japan. In 1941 Japan attacked the USA and a brutal world war erupted. So what exactly do you think will happen if we continue to battle China in an economic war through sanctions?

How much more does it take before we, as a country or us individuals, get sick and tired of useless war and say, “Enough is enough!”?

Well, as long as we have war mongers like John Bolton in positions of influence we will continue to have devastating wars, and threats of war…with few, if any, accomplishments to show for it.

What are the chances of going to war? First off, we are already in numerous wars. Second, we could end up in war with Iran any day. The US government has been pushing very hard for military action against Iran. Granted, Iran is a “bad guy”…an evil regime of which there is no doubt. And, we (the US) have bad guys as well pushing for war with them, John Bolton is at the head of that list. Over the last few months there have been numerous attacks on oil infrastructure in the Middle East. They include attacks on refining facilities, shipping facilities, and shipping. Most recently Iran attacked several oil tankers with mines…indisputable proof of such activity via drone footage. War with Iran could break out any day, they’ve already fired missiles at our drones. One was shot down in Yeman. We will strike them…then it will be up to Iran if we go to war.

I am saying it plainly…We are already at war, and there are three more potential wars that could spring up overnight. And if those wars would involve Russia or China…we will not win. If any kind of major conflict would develop with either country we will lose. Maybe not militarily, but the end result would be devastating to the US and to the rest of the world.

Why would the US government seek more war? Oh come on! You know the answer to that question already. War is a primary tool of any government to distract its own citizens from internal strife. ALL politicians are capable of using that tool when they feel their power is in jeopardy…no exceptions. And if that isn’t enough…the military-industrial complex make huge profits during times of war. Money and power…the root of politicians…and evil.

Political –

Right after the inauguration of Trump I laid out the coup that was taking place against him. And I identified the major players on the ground. I was 100% correct then, and I even identified the players by name and position who were waging the coup against him. And I believe I am just a correct as I share the following with you.

But first, let me clear up a misconception. You will hear many folks speak of a “soft” or “hard” coup. I don’t believe those terms to be correct. A coup is a coup…period. And any attempt to remove a President from office outside of the electoral process is a coup…period. Now, there is a difference in the means of a coup. But, not aligned with soft or hard terms. Coups are either violent or non-violent. An impeachment attempt of a President is a non-violent coup. An assassination of President is a violent coup. So, let’s be clear…way back after Trump was elected a non-violent coup began in earnest with the Whitehouse, DOJ, CIA, FBI, DNI, NSA, as well as others. Its plan was to create such a cloud of “treason” against Trump that he would never become President. I also believe that there were plans for a violent coup in the inner circle of conspirators as well…and that would include the armed intelligent agencies; CIA, DNI, & FBI with the assistance of the NSA.

The initial non-violent coup has failed. Although the second non-violent coup (impeachment) has the democrats -meaning Democrats, Progressives, liberals, RINOs- still fighting that fight. What we have to look at is the renewed resurgence of the non-violent impeachment coup via additional activity of the House of Representatives towards that end. They have somehow taken the Mueller Report results and convoluted them into the foundation of their coup efforts.

Even if the House impeached Trump they know that a conviction in the Senate would be highly, highly unlikely.  However, the impeachment alone would be enough to destroy Trump’s chances of reelection in 2020. In the event of impeachment there would be little impact on Trump’s base, but it would rally the democrats for the election to a fever pitch. And most importantly, it would ruin Trump’s chances with the bulk of independent voters for their support. Why? Conflict…people would be tired (if not already are) of conflict and controversy and ready from some peace and quiet. And that would be the democrat’s mantra.

What shows up on my radar as dangerous are the recent calls for 100+ rallies for “Impeach Trump!”. And this could turn into a violent coup attempt. Granted, there were only a few dozen rallies that actually occurred that weekend. But, the important note of that is…there were a few dozen rallies that occurred that weekend. If the street level “Impeach Trump!” movement begins to gain a head of steam what do you think will happen? If you said violence you are exactly right. Remember, historical facts show the Democrats are the party of violence and war. And what would the reaction to that protest/rally violence be? Yup, increasing violence coming from both sides…then from law enforcement. This scenario is a threat that many folks haven’t looked seriously at as of yet.

Now, second to last in the political arena…the 2020 elections. There will be no winner in the 2020 presidential election. Certainly not the country. There will be only two outcomes if Trump runs…he wins, or he loses.

First, if Trump wins…the democrats will go absolutely crazy, out of their mind, insane. And the more extreme of those radicals will go violent. Another issue will be, not maybe, a violent coup. There are still many, many deep state (shadow state) players in the government. The DOJ, DNI, FBI, NSA, and CIA are full of them. And they have the training, capability, and motivation to carry out a violent coup against Trump…they just need a spark.

Second, if Trump loses…there are some very radical Trump supporters fully capable of violence. Perhaps not nearly as many, nor as insane as democrats, but they are there. What do you think they will be motivated to do? And how newly empowered do you think the democrats will be? They are already talking about prosecuting Trump once he is out of office, do you think they would follow through with it? If they did, what do you think the radical right’s reaction would be?

If Trump doesn’t run…there is only one reason he would not run…he knows he would lose. And that knowledge might come from polling, from impeachment, or from blackmail. If Trump doesn’t run, democrats win by default. Why? Because if Trump doesn’t run his 4-years as President will be seen by Independents as a failure. And that vision will be all the motivation they will need to go for a democrat.

And now the unpredictable…what if the democrats win the Senate? Look out! Couple that with them winning the Presidency and the country is 100% screwed…at the speed of light. And what do you think some of the crazies on the right might do when they see that happening?

Once more…there is absolutely no winner for the 2020 elections. I think the campaign will be extremely turbulent at best, extremely violent at worst. Be prepared!

Note: I think the 2020 election will be one of accountability. Yes, which political party will be held the most accountable for their actions. But, I also firmly believe that we, as individuals, should look at being held accountable for who we vote for…regardless of the office in question. I would like to lay this out there for your consideration…vote for the person who most closely mirrors your personal and political beliefs. I mean in terms of ethics, morals, and the Constitution…vote for that person regardless of party affiliation. Basically…vote your conscience.

Final point in this political category…the Electoral College disbandment. Before I get started I want to make sure that you understand a very, very important point…the United States of America is NOT a democracy! The USA is a Constitutional Republic. There is a massively huge difference. If you don’t know that the USA is a Constitutional Republic, or you don’t understand the difference…PLEASE research it out now.

One key aspect of preventing the destruction of the USA is the fact it is not a democracy and was never intended to be such. The Constitution was specifically written to prevent that. And one of the key elements to prevent the USA from degenerating into just another sewage based country is the Electoral College. It was designed with the intention to prevent mobocracy (a synonym for democracy). It was also designed to prevent a single party being able to so deceive the public into bring back a monarchy or some other undesirable form of government.

And so what are the democrats up to…continuing to destroy the USA…which they have been working at for over 100 years. This time they are trying to do it through the elimination of the Electoral College. There are 15 states now, controlling 195 electoral votes, with laws that require their state to cast their Electoral College votes for the popular vote winner. That is in 100% direct opposition to the Constitution. And the democrats are 100% behind it!

So, why are democrats so intent on this move? Simple, they want to change America into a socialist country to be able to implement totalitarianism. And they have a plan to do that through the destruction of the Constitutional Republic via instituting democracy.

Technology –

This particular category has risen in my opinion as being one of the biggest threats to freedom the world has ever seen. Actually, one of the biggest threats to humanity that the world has ever seen. Yes, there are many good things about technology and its uses…there is no denying that. But, it is being used for evil (and will be more so in the very near future) far more than it is being used for good. How?

There is a two-pronged attack via technology in the war against the human race taking place right now that are very significant in nature. And I mean it in every sense of the term “war” in a very real sense.

First, there is the refinement of Artificial Intelligence (AI). And within this first point is:

1 – AI being used more and more to replace humans. No, not supplement humans…replace them.

Emerging and increasing popular use of armed machines, controlled by AI, used to kill people. We see the technology used widely in the war on terrorism in the form of armed “drones” which are now capable of making independent “kill” decisions. We are also seeing AI used in law enforcement work. We saw that back in 2016 the Dallas PD used a robot to kill a suspected gunman. The technology has refined exponentially since then.  Then there is the law enforcement agencies use of computer software, AI based, to predict criminal activity. That has been going on for at least a couple of decades on a community level but has recently made a quantum leap on the individual citizen level as AI has evolved to truly scary point.

2 – And a very weird category of AI is in the use of sex robots. While mostly ignored, usually scoffed at, it will have more impact on civilization/humanity than all military and law enforcement use of AI combined. It is already shown through studies that humans are increasingly more favorable to robots as sex partners than humans. Think of those implications. Enough said.

Second, the dramatic creation of refined “deepfake” media. Deepfake media is media produced that is not real (i.e. fake) but appears to be 100% real and true. The form of deepfake that I am most concerned with is visual media. Do you remember watching comedy based TV shows where they would take someone’s face and superimpose moving lips to say jokes, sing a song, etc.? That was kindergarten stuff!

The technology now exists to make videos using someone’s entire face/body and they appear to say whatever the creator wishes. It is almost impossible to notice any superficial movement to the lips/body or in voice manipulation. And since the voice is actually the person’s real voice whose words are being manipulated it sounds like them in every sense of the word. Now, all that being said, the software (powered by AI) is currently being refined to make it impossible for the average person (i.e. without the aid of sophisticated technology) to tell the difference between a person giving an actual speech or one that is completely fabricated through the use of deepfake technology.

The truly frightening aspect of this will come to play in politics. Politicians, including national leaders, will appear to give a speech or comment…and the question will be…is it true or not? Unfortunately, most people will be fooled into thinking that deepfake media will be true media. And, I believe it will appear in the 2020 elections to some degree. And both foreign governments and US based political operatives will use it against the public.

Now, the horrifying aspect of this technology will come to light as governments begin to use it through its national level intelligence and law enforcement agencies. Think of the prospect of US agencies having the technology to present media to the public that is completely fabricated and indistinguishable from the truth. How far do you think the US government would go using this kind of technology against its citizens?  Now, if you don’t remember what I laid out in the “political” category go read it again. Then ask yourself…How far would the US government go with deepfake capabilities…based on what they have already done that we know to be historical infamous fact?

Why is it so scary? Shortly, very shortly, you will not be able to believe what you see or what you hear. So then, how are you going to discern truth from lies? Reality from fantasy?

People –

This is the most disheartening category that I will write about in this SitRep. Why? Because it is so disappointing to see people changing so much lately.

Before I get started I want to publically thank the Catholic Church. While it does have serious issues and problems right now that are very public, they are leading the public fight against abortion/infanticide. For that valiant fight defending the unborn children…Thank you!

First group I am worried about…democrats. Remember, I include Progressives, Liberals, Democrats, and RINOs in this collective term. Why? Because it is applicable and an easier to term to use when typing.

Democrats have become the party/group of evil about 100 years ago. And yes, I mean evil in the true sense of the word. They are the backers of infanticide. They are trying to eliminate the Electoral College and hence destroy our very Constitutional Republic itself. And let us not forget…they want to install Communism in the US…and violently if needed. Penny Kuzmich, Colorado democrat politician, made that clear in June 2019.

The Democrats have corrupted the education system in the USA. Remember John Dewey is regarded as the father of public schools? Yeah, did you know that John Dewey was a rabid socialist/Communist? Did you know the ideas he brought to America to establish government education here were based on European fascist government’s original development of the so-called public education system? Yeah, I hope you did…but many don’t. To this day teacher unions are some of the most socialist/communist based organizations in the country. And it is they who are educating the vast majority of our children…and have done so for well over 100 years.

Results: by a large majority Millennials (Democrats or Republicans) view socialism more favorably than capitalism. And in terms of all age groups of Democrats…they are evenly split 50-50 as seeing socialism as a more favorable form of economic system than capitalism. That means we are losing our country to the forces of evil…and thanks in great part to our government school system.

And most disturbing and disgusting of all people and their behavior…democrats lauding and bragging about infanticide. It is utterly disgusting that democrats so wholly and enthusiastically support this worst of human crimes. More and more so-called Christians are embracing abortion. It simply can’t be! You cannot be both a Christian and pro-abortion…period…end of story. The sixth of the Ten Commandments forbids the shedding of innocent blood. There is nothing more innocent that an unborn baby in a mother’s womb. End of story.

And now another group of people that I am increasingly aware of…some Christians. And within that group are two  concerns…first, shrinking number of Christians. I pointed that out some months ago what is happening to the numbers…they are shrinking and an alarming rate.

The other trend I am seeing is Christians behaving badly. Not in a general term…for we all sin and fall short. What I am referring to is Christian-on-Christian behavior. I am becoming more aware of some Christians treating other Christians in a way that is wholly inappropriate, ever increasing, and something to be worried about as a prepper. Not that long ago I saw a debate between two people, both professing to be Christians. One person in the discussion pointed out evils committed by a government agency using historical facts to support their claim. Another person disagreed with the first person but used only opinion, not a single fact. The first person came back and stated again that his opinion/view was based on actual documented historical events. The second person (defender of government agency) came back with a very personal attack and threatened to turn the person into the government agency in question. Think about that for a minute…let it sink in.

Why do I think that is a bad thing? Ravening wolf in sheep’s clothing (Mathew 7). These are those individuals that after an emergency, disaster, or grid-down event occurs, will be the first in line to turn in neighbors and fellow Christians to the bad guys to win some disagreement. In a hard grid-down they will see themselves as doing a great community service to let government authorities know who has food and water storage, guns, ammunition, or who have expressed anti-government sentiments in the past. They will be the “Judas” of their time against fellow Christians. Sad, but true.

Another type of person I am starting to see more of is the self-righteous, deluded protector of truth. This type of person takes the position of being perfectly right on every subject/point of Christianity and demeaning all others who don’t agree with them on every point. Normally that kind of person would only be viewed as obnoxious, irritating, or pitied. However, when viewed in a larger picture…they can be dangerous. What, if after grid-down, this person decides that you aren’t sufficiently Christian enough…and they are in some position of power? What if you are living in a Christian community and somehow he becomes the developer or enforcer of rules/laws of the group? When I think of people who take the position of self-righteous, deluded protectors of religious truth and attack others for not living up to their standard…well, I think of the Taliban. That is exactly the kind of behavior those monsters (the Taliban) displayed…to the fatal detriment of others…mostly women and the weaker.

Unfortunately, some of these folks are well-intentioned, well-meaning, but harm fellow Christians none the less. Then there are others who view, and excuse, the inappropriate behavior as simply being strict, obsessive, a little over the top, gruff, etc. But don’t kid yourself! These “protector” folks are suffering from mental and/or spiritual maladies. And in a pre or post prepping environment they could easily end up being very dangerous to you and your family.

Now, don’t get me wrong…generally speaking there are great people in this world alongside the dirt bags! At our property we have one neighbor that is basically a jerk for a number of reasons. Then there is another neighbor, an Army combat vet who is a gem. We work on our common fence together, he has helped me with projects, and I have helped him to do the same. We’ve shared family time, meal time, laughs around camp fires, and a couple vet-to-vet moments. Who do you think is the person you more likely can count on when the world falls apart? Who would likely be a problem?

What my point is…figure out who your friends, neighbors, and associates really are. Can you trust them, are they a danger, are they an asset, etc.? It is better to have an idea ahead of time rather than when your family’s lives are on the line.

There is another group of folks, Christians also, that I am also worried about. These folks end up following, like sheep, other people and trusting in the arm of flesh. They allegedly receive confirmation by the spirit that they are doing the right thing and the person they follow is inspired. But here is the rub…other folks put in the same position with the same person receive confirmation that it is a bad situation and that they should not get involved with that person. So what is the problem? Trusting in the arm of flesh and/or not being able to discern spiritual vs. emotional feelings. There are too many false prophets out there today and we know there are more to come.

The number one red flag I see in this regard is a person claiming some special knowledge, path, information, etc. that is contradicted by, or not supported by, scripture. The number two red flag shows itself when they attempt to make money off their specialness.

In my view…with these people you are dealing with the two basic problems that the world has in general…power and money. So I ask myself, “Would an Apostle of Jesus Christ, such as Mathew, have attempted to sell his writings or freely give them to the world?” or, “Would the Apostle John have written a book concerning the last days (i.e. The Book of Revelations) and sell it through Amazon for $24.95?” I think you know the answer. So would somebody who claims to have special spiritual information such as dreams of heaven or a vision of the last days charge you money to learn of such? Would that indicate a true Christian spirit or one lusting for money and/or fame, perhaps seeking power?

Note: If their work is available for free in some form for people to read (i.e. posted on the Internet) but is also optionally published in a book for people to reference…well, I see that as far, far more acceptable. Why? Because they are making it available for people to learn from without using it to make money off of special spiritual matters. In other words their alleged spiritual event(s) is not solely a commercial venture.

FYI…I am an author. My first 2 books were available free online, but in a limited environment. They were subsequently published at the request of quite a few people. My third book was exclusively published on-line, on this website, available completely free. My fourth book will be also available on this website 100% free! When the fourth book is finished being published online I will then publish books #1 and #2 online, free as well. There is valuable information in those book (IMHO) and I want it to be freely available and not restricted based solely on a person’s ability to pay.

Summary/Solution –

For years now I’ve shared with you my opinion on when this country falls apart. And, as so goes the United States…so goes the world. My opinion has been consistent, I believe two basic paths wherein the country falls apart. First, the continued slow descent into totalitarianism that started in earnest back in the Woodrow Wilson administration and continues, albeit accelerating, today. Secondly, would be a single event -mostly unexpected- that will plunge us into a national disaster overnight. I still hold that two-path belief today…more than ever.

During the years I’ve been monitoring those two distinct, but same destination, paths I’ve seen the probabilities of each swing. What I mean by that is this…sometimes we are more likely to experience a single event vs. a continual decline. At other times, the slow decline is far more probable with no single event on the near horizon to plunge us into oblivion. Recently, on any given day, those rather stable “probability” views of mine have swung widely. Why? The events of each day, and the manipulation of those events, are growing increasingly dangerous. And I can’t even tell which is more dangerous…the event itself, or the manipulation of a specific event. What I do know…it is getting worse…exponentially worse.

With the renewed push by radical, extremist Democrats (which means all of them) to continue their overthrow of our US President…it could explode overnight based on their ever increasing call to action (violent and otherwise). As we look at the potential of yet another hot war (i.e. Iran), two cold wars (Russia and China), and two economic wars (China and Mexico), we see that, again, an overnight event could explode right in our faces. Our economic situation is more tenuous than I’ve ever seen it. We’ve never been more in debt, we have huge annual federal budget deficits, and all the while draining more money out of the private sector via federal income taxes. Our GDP is quickly softening to dangerous warning levels. And most of all…our country’s morals make Sodom and Gomorrah look like a Girl Scout camp. Simply put…we are ripe for destruction.

So there is the summary part…not so different than my other SitReps over the last couple of years. But, I want to make this perfectly clear…I believe the chance of an “overnight event” occurring to the degree that it could bring down our Constitutional Republic is greater than it has ever been in my lifetime…and that covers 64 years.

So what is the “solution”????? Ah yes…there is the key. And that will come in Part 2!

SitRep – 3/12/2019 (update)

>>  Update to the 3/12/2019 SitRep <<

Normally I don’t do updates to SitReps, especially so closely after one is posted. But, this is an exception. If you haven’t read the original SitRep posted on 3/12/2019 you probably should.

<click here to read>

So, I just wanted to reinforce where I think we are as a country and make an impression on you to work harder towards being prepared.



Please don’t ignore the warning signs that our economy, even the world’s economy, is in rough shape and is growing worse by the day. Manufacturing is weakening and that is one of the cornerstones of Trump’s economic policy and recovery. Also, home ownership is increasingly dying out among an entire generation of Americans. The worst of that news is…their lack of home ownership is due to ballooning personal debt. That is a 1-2 punch to the economic gut.

One of the primary tech giants that is a huge player with the US government is also a huge service provider to the Chinese government. And Google is assisting the Chinese military! So, for the right price…what else is Google providing to the Chinese government?

Also, note that an increasing number of companies are using AI to hire their employees. Really? So now people’s employment is increasingly dependent on Artificial Intelligence? The fate of people more dependent on AI now than ever…and that trend is growing at light speed! AI is a far great threat to our way of life, and to us, than most people imagine.

Gun Ownership/Rights take another hit. Since when does the manufacturer of an inanimate object become liable for the illegal use of that item in the commission of a crime? Will Craftsman become liable when a hammer is used in a murder? How about if a Chevy owner intentionally murders someone by running over them with a Cruze? This is just another attempt at the US Government (via the US Judicial system) to tank the gun industry and gun ownership. There is a growing anti-run wave…and soon it will be a tidal wave that grows into a tsunami. And you may be surprised at who won’t defend gun rights.

State Supreme Court overturns lower court ruling, says Sandy Hook families can sue gun manufacturer Remington

Morality / Debauchery

Here we have a Democrat Senator voting for infanticide…and is against the killing of kittens! Next time you hear of Democrats loving children…throw the BS flag!!!!  They love baby kitties more than they love baby humans! This is just another sign of the Democrat evil and their utter disdain for anything good. They should be ashamed of themselves…but they are not. And that my friend should scare the hell out of you!

Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley Condemns ‘Slaughter’ of Kittens, Voted Against Protecting Human Babies from Infanticide
Breitbart – 14 Mar 2019


I want to impress upon you to see the signs all around us. Notice what is happening and how and to whom. Yes, I realize that there is much going on in the world…sometimes overwhelmingly so. But, I don’t want you to lose track of it and lose your Situational Awareness. Macro events are happening quickly all around us…and virtually all of it is bad and getting worse. And it is happening more quickly…and it will speed up. It will speed up to the point where it will spin out of control…out of control even to those that think they are in control. And that point is not too far off.

What am I saying?

I am telling you point blank…get your house in order.

No, I am not telling you to pack up the truck and head for the mountains or anything like that. I am telling you I am seeing events unfold that are causing concern…to my way of thinking. I want you to take what is happening and see what you can do in terms of prepping to make you and your family -and yes, your community- better prepared for what is coming.

I understand you may want yo ask…When will it all fall apart? I would like to ask that as well. I don’t have that answer for you. If I did I would share it. But, I can tell you this with absolute surety…it will fall apart. It could come tomorrow…next month…next year…or 10 years from now. But, it is coming and it will surprise all of us. I just want you to be the least surprised and as best prepared as possible.

Ready my Summary from 3/12/2019 SitRep on what I am encouraging you to do.

SitRep – 3/12/2019

Dang it!  I was really not wanting to do any SitReps any more…at least not many. But, this is one of those times I feel I should.

First off…I love life and many of the things going on in the world today. Next, I am not saying the sky is falling or we are about to crash and burn. Finally….please, PLEASE…don’t think this is a call for panic or any kind of serious, life-altering action(s) on your part. This is only me sharing some things I am seeing and that I am concerned about…and that I want you to consider and be concerned about.

Whew…that was my full disclaimer/disclosure!!!  OK, let’s get started…

Financial / Economy

It sucks!  No better way to put it. We are seeing pension funds going belly up with taxpayers having to bail them out, we see sub-prime auto loans defaulting at historic levels, we are seeing massive federal budget deficits, and the federal debt is more out of control now than ever before.

As for the federal debt…In 2018 interest on the national debt was about $310 billion dollars. In a mere five years (2023) the interest bill will have doubled to $619 billion!!  And that is if the national debt doesn’t grow like it has been and interest rates don’t grow more than expected.

I took a look at the USA’s GDP figures. I am not real crazy about using GDP due to some underlying issues I have with the details of how it is calculated. However, it does give a useful trend indicator. Stats: 2016 1.6%, 2017 2.2%, 2018 2.9%, 2019 2.3%, 2020 2.0%, 2021 1.8%. That means the economy is now softening and expected to get much more soft and soon.

Notice that when Trump took office the GDP improved. However, 2019 figures are showing that the GDP is weakening and the projections for the near future are not good…clear weakening sign for the economy. Also, as a side note…the IMF projects noticeably smaller GDP grow for the USA in years 2019 – 2021.

Last week the EU announced its central banks were going back into stimulus mode. Meaning they are in a near recession and are very worried about their economies slipping into a full-blown recession…one they think could be as bad as 2007 – 2008.

In January of this year the American consumer set a new record…the highest level of credit card debt ever in the history! It is well beyond a trillion dollars…with the average household owing nearly $7,000. That is staggering! I tend to compare that to the rise in GDP and see a correlation. Meaning a false growth in GDP due to it increasing based almost purely on debt increases. Also, as a side note there are 37million credit card accounts that are 90+ days past due. That status, 90+ days past due, is considered seriously delinquent.

In July 2018 the 30-year fixed mortgage rate was 3.41%. In March of 2019 the rate was 4.41%. That is a 30% increase in mortgage rates. However, in November 2018 the rate hit 4.94%…a 45% increase. That shows a drop of over 12% in that five months. So I see this as two issues…1) home buying is becoming more and more expensive for Americans leaving less available income for other expenses, 2) there is significant volatility in the credit market. Neither of these are good signs.

Now, let’s talk stocks for a minute. Well, the stock market sucks as well. For the last year it is up a measly 2.4%…terrible. And its volatility has been horrific. Enough said about the stock market.

And now on to retail…nearly 5000 retail stores will be closing in 2019. Oh wait…that is just the announced closings as of mid-March 2019. Let’s see how many more stores will close in addition to the 5000 as the year wears on.

And last tidbit…socialism. Yup, you’ve been hearing a lot about it lately…and for good reason. Socialism is the Democrat Party’s answer to overthrowing the US’s financial system. Have no doubt, without qualification, without reservation Democrats want socialism to rule the United States. Why? Because that gives them more control over the economy and thus, more power over people.

The Constitution

US Senate Bill 7 – “Extreme Risk Protection Order and Violence Prevention Act of 2019”

When all is said and done this is a gun confiscation bill completely outside of the Constitutional right to due process. On the mere derogatory comment of an unhappy neighbor, upset girlfriend, ticked off wife, idiot pastor, liberal doctor, or literally ANYONE…the police can simply come take your guns without any interaction with the court system.

And here is the thing you really need to know…it is being proposed by REPUBLICANS!!!!  Yes, you read that right. It is Sen. Marco Rubio…Progressive, globalist, Republican from Florida is the sponsor of this bill. And let’s now make it just a tad bit worse…Sen. Lindsey Graham, Republican, announced that is already has the approval of President Trump, Republican. And that should come as no surprise since Trump is not a believer in the Second Amendment. Really? Yup, his administration has not defended the Second Amendment in the court system. And remember it is good ole Donny Boy that brought forward banning bump-stocks by Executive Order. And Trump is, and has been, a big anti-due process advocate.

Republicans, if not already, are now clearly showing their attitude against the Constitution. As I have been saying for a very long time…Democrats and Republicans are nothing more than different sides to the same coin.


I would have hoped that by now you are up to speed on all the issues with technology and privacy. If not, let me help you. There is no privacy when it involves technology. The NSA collects virtually all electronic messaging in the world, but specifically in the US. Multiple federal law enforcement agencies monitor all websites, especially social media…even so-called “private” or “membership” websites. As for cellphones…whatever the NSA doesn’t capture, it is all available to the feds with a simple “demand order” to the cell phone companies.

But, let’s talk Google for a second…not only are they a massive tech player, they are a massive personal information provider to the US government. And why? Money! Google not only provides all that data to the feds, they also now provide huge amounts of tech services to the US government…by hosting federal databases on Google servers. How’s that make you feel? Oh, and have you ever looked into how much money Google lobbyists pump into Washington?????  Yeah, they are the largest money pumper into that swamp.

Now for Facebook…they are a privacy mess. Well, technically there is ZERO privacy when it comes to Facebook. Everything they touch they collect personal information…and they either sell it to other corporations or provide it to the federal government. And here is a great little piece of info…Facebook VPNs. Yeah, Facebook got into the VPN (Virtual Private Network) business a while back. Well, finally someone ratted them out. Seems that Facebook monitors ALL information going over their VPNs. Yeah, cool eh? A supposedly “private” form of web communication is fully monitored by the very same company that is providing it. And they once again capture everything going through that network, record it, decipher it, and sell it. Or, as with all their other data tracking…provide it to the US government.

And let us not forget…VPNs are not as private as you might think, regardless of who is providing the service. The data (i.e. communications) is still monitored, can still be captured, and can still be decrypted. And all it takes is someone wanting that information. The feds simply need to provide a demand order to a company and “poof!’’ the US government gets whatever they want…for whatever reason they want.

As you already know…a lot of good is coming of out the use of technology…no doubt about it. But, plain and simple…technology is killing our society. It is dumbing people down to a moron level. And it is eliminating privacy. And it is killing people’s ability to actually interact with others on a social level…in real life face-to-face relationships. But, the single worst thing that we have learned…technology is manipulating people…big time! And I will let that go at that.

And already occurring, but what will increase exponentially in the next five years, is AI (Artificial Intelligence). What is happening in the AI world and what the plans for it are…should scare you into never getting a good night’s sleep again.


Another area that I could sum up by simply saying…it sucks!

I don’t care which party you belong to…you shouldn’t! The Democrats are the party of evil. Republicans…not much better…if any. I have issued this warning over and over again…the 2020 election is a no-win situation. The outcome of the investigation of Trump/Russia is also a no-win situation. Plainly put, the best of it is this…

  • Trump is spending us into oblivion.
  • Democrats are promoting infanticide and Socialism.
  • Republicans are promoting gun confiscation.
  • We have never, ever been more polarized.
  • All of these politicians are now acting with an insanity not seen in my lifetime.

Yeah, that dire. And I know the Trump lovers will go off the rails on me…but truth hurts and Trump is doing some miserable things to us.

But, what does it all mean? I can’t see anything positive coming out of Washington…period. And that is a very bad sign. Because when the chips are down, the country is split, is hurting financially…politicians seem to come up with war as an answer. The question to ask…Who is the war against next time?

Morality / Debauchery

I’ve already written extensively on this subject. We are crashing and burning as a country from a morality perspective. If you can’t see that…you aren’t looking. If nothing else, abortion/infanticide alone condemns this country.

US Government

Well, where do I start? I guess stating clearly that the US government is the biggest threat to the US Constitution and the worst danger to US citizens would be a very reliable summary. I’ve been writing quite a bit over the last few years exposing the utter darkness that is within the FBI. The CIA historical record stands on its own…one of the most evil governmental organizations that the modern world has ever known.

But, what about the Department of Justice? Well, all I can say is read Sidney Powell’s book “Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice”. It will make you sick to your stomach to know that those we think should be protecting us, US citizens, and our rights….well, they are actually doing just the opposite. Reading the massive corruption that exists in the DOJ is eye opening to say the least.

And an interesting side note…The FBI, the CIA, and the DOJ are not authorized under the US Constitution. Interesting, eh?

FYI…I firmly believe that in the coming couple/few years we are going to see a noticeable upswing in prosecution/persecution of individuals and groups that are vocal about what is happening in our country. We’ve already seen it occur in many situations over the last few decades. However, that will be nothing compared to what is happening. I also believe that the DOJ, as well as state authorities, will use “abuse” accusations/allegations as a major propaganda tool against individuals.


Nothing new! It is the same old crap that is been rapidly building for 20 years…it is just now exponentially worse than 20 years ago. And it is growing worse at a rate that is approaching light speed. And it is irreversible.

Now, granted…read the “tagline” to the website…If ye are prepared ye shall not fear. So don’t fear what is happening. And dang sure don’t fear what is coming! You simply have to prepare for it.

Now…what to do about it?

Sorry, a simple answer again…what you have already been doing…or should have been doing:

1 – Be prepared to defend yourself and your family.

2 – Be prepared to provide medical care for basic injuries and sickness.

3 – Be able to communicate with your family by unconventional means.

4 – Organize your preps, your family, and a group to respond to emergencies, disasters, and grid-down situations.

5 – Have multiple ways to purify water.

6 – Be able to provide secure shelter and have a back-up to your home as shelter.

7 – Be able to feed your family for as long as you possibly can. Make sure you have seeds stored.

8 – Get training in all aspects of the above 1 – 7.

9 – Practice the skills in all aspects of the above 1 – 7.

10 – Teach your family in all aspects of the above 1 – 7.

11 – Consider reaching out beyond your family in all aspects of the above 1 – 7.

12 – Strengthen your faith, your compassion, and your commitment to helping others.

13 – Help your family to strengthen their faith, their compassion, and their commitment to helping others.

14 – Listen to that still small voice within you…and act on it at once.

And in and amongst all of that…get yourself in the best financial situation you can.

Now, that list is not necessarily in priority order. Each person and family situation is different…and this list is just a “prompter” to give you something to think about. But, I do believe it to be sound advice. Listen to the still small voice on what you and your family should be doing…and DO IT! And do it sooner rather than later.

I posted a “update” to this article on 3/15/2019. Please <click here> to read that update.

SitRep – 5/16/2017

I wrote this article yesterday afternoon (Monday 5/15), then did my final edit about 9:30pm. Yeah, then I woke up at 4am…worried. I was worried that the article was too “alarmist” in tone. I mean I am claiming WWIII to have started, that a Civil War is taking place, and our President is in the process of being overthrown by the ruling class.

Nah! That’s not alarmist at all…right!

So I laid there in bed and thought it through. You either believe me because I have proven myself to be pretty dang accurate in what I publish. Or, you will dismiss what you read because you think I am making stuff up. Then again, you might think I am a card-carrying tinfoil hat kind of person.

But, what hit me the most…I have to put this out there. I know I am right. I might not have each detail exactly right, maybe I am not spot-on about each person, and I probably am off on timelines. But, I know that I am connecting the dots correctly. So I am a voice of warning. What you do with that warning is up to you.

So here is the challenge…prove me wrong. Yup, don’t believe a single word I print in this article, or any other. Rather, try and find valid and reliable information that proves me wrong, that what I am saying is not true. Because in the final analysis you are responsible for yourself and your family. I am only be a voice of warning. And I am perfectly OK with that.

Here we go…the situation in the world and in the USA has just ratcheted up another notch. We have some serious problems facing us right now.

There are dark forces at work right now in this country. Forces that would like to see nothing less than the Constitution being destroyed…completely destroyed.

In this SitRep I will cover the following:

  • The coup to overthrow Trump continues and intensifies
  • Update on the secret police in the US
  • World War III has started
  • I personally caught the Trump White House lying…clearly and unequivocally lying. And I can prove it.

The Coup Continues –

James Clapper, unindicted co-conspirator, has clearly made known his participation in the coup against Trump. I said back in March that James Comey and James Clapper were coordinating the actions of America’s secret police (FBI, CIA, & NSA) in the coup against Trump. Clapper, who repeatedly perjured himself during Congressional hearings, stated over the weekend that:

  • Russia interfered in our 2016 presidential elections.
  • Trump colluded with Russia in that interference.
  • Russia is assaulting our governmental institutions (i.e. an act of war).
  • Trump is assaulting our governmental institutions (eroding the Constitutional system of checks & balances) from inside the White House (act of treason).
  • Trump worked with, and gave a victory to, Russia when he fired James Comey.

James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, he denied that the NSA spied on Congress
Here is what we know about James clapper, former head of National Intelligence:

  • He repeatedly perjured himself in Congressional hearings. All of which are felonies.
  • He repeatedly lied to the American public through statements and press releases.
  • He led the intelligence services to illegally and unconstitutionally acquire communications of regular Americans through massive acquisitions of all electronic communications.
  • He illegally authorized the “unmasking” of persons to the Obama administration for purely political purposes. Estimates are in the 2000 persons range. All of which were felonies.
  • He illegally authorized intelligence services to unconstitutionally conduct surveillance operations on members of Congress, both Representatives and Senators.

Clapper is a slimy dirt bag that is actively attempting, in conjunction with others, to overthrow the President of the United States.

Here is what we know about James Comey, former Director of the FBI:

  • We know that Comey was, and still is, working to oust Trump from office.
  • We know that Comey was a highly politicized appointee by Obama working directly for Obama’s political agenda.
  • We know that Comey used the FBI in coordination with the IRS against Tea Party and other conservative and constitutional non-profits. Yes, multiple felonies.
  • We know Comey perjured himself in Congressional hearings. Once again, felonies.
  • We know that Comey worked for AG Loretta Lynch. And after Lynch met privately with Bill Clinton is when Comey announced that although Hillary Clinton repeatedly committed multiple felonies, including national security violations, that Hillary would not be charged.
  • This is the same Comey that had threatened Apple Computer to give the FBI unfettered access to all Apple devices regardless of country or the legality.
  • We know that Comey illegally used intelligence and electronic communications that were illegally acquired by the NSA.

Comey is another slimy dirt bag that is actively attempting, in conjunction with others, to overthrow the President of the United States.

We are now entering a period of critical mass. We have the Democrats in an all-out assault on the Trump Presidency. You now have multiple Congressional Dems calling for the immediate impeachment of Trump. You see sleaze bag Liberal/Progressives like John McCain (so-called Republican) joining the battle to overthrow Trump. The media is obviously all in for overthrowing Trump.

This coup is real and continuing to grow.

Now that they are building and strengthening the case of “Trump & Russia against the United States” you will see more calls from both sides of the political aisle for a special investigation and prosecutor to probe that connection. And they will find enough…I am not sure exactly what, but they will find enough.

And possibly, very possibly, it will accurate and real. Remember General Michael Flynn? He has made it easy to link Trump to Russia through his highly suspect actions and financial dealings. Guilty or not he has added gasoline to the fire.

The Secret Police –

I keep talking about America’s secret police, and for good reason. The FBI, CIA, and the NSA all comprise to make up the generic term secret police. Here is what we now know to be 100% fact about those highly armed paramilitary organizations:

  • They have been illegally collecting all electronic communications and information on all Americans for over 10 years. And the whole time they’ve been denying it. However, all the information and documents released over the last two years through investigations and document leaks makes it clear they have been lying to us and to Congress all along.
  • The FBI, in conjunction with the IRS, illegally worked to suppress conservatives, Tea Party groups, and Constitution advocate groups. This is not just illegal but irrefutably unconstitutional…an outright act of treason.
  • We know the FBI has a long history of political influencing via blackmail and extortion of politicians and even Presidents.
  • We know that the CIA has been working clandestinely to influence elections around the world for over five decades.
  • We know that the CIA has violently overthrown governments around the world, including assignations of sovereign leaders.
  • We know that the NSA and FBI have undertaken a systematic abuse of the FISA court to otherwise illegally obtain intelligence information of US citizens.
  • We know that the NSA and the FBI have intimidated and extorted cooperation of technology companies to provide massive amounts of data on regular US citizens that would otherwise be illegal to obtain.
  • We know that the NSA and the FBI has intimidated and extorted cooperation of technology companies to provide “backdoor” access to their software and electronic devices.
  • We know the source of last week’s world-wide cyber-attacks was done with malware developed by the NSA.

And the list could go on and on and on. The point is we know beyond any shadow of a doubt that America’s secret police are working against the interests of American citizens. We know for absolute fact that they are breaking the law and their actions are also without question unconstitutional. We know for 100% certainty that they are lying about it to not just the American public, but committing perjury (felonies) when testifying in front of Congress. Yet, they continue to operate with impunity!

So the natural question would be, “Why?”

There are actually two questions here; 1) Why are they doing it to begin with? 2) Why aren’t they being stopped?

The first question is an easy one…America’s secret police is committing these treasonous actions because they support the establishment of a police state, a totalitarian government, and are actively working to assist in its establishment. To overthrow the Constitution they must subdue the citizens and silence all opposition. Their actions prove their intentions.

The second question is almost as easy, just a little more complicated…America’s secret police can’t be stopped because of their immense power…we are talking serious life and death kind of power. And combined with that are their powerful co-conspirators that are in the government establishment (i.e. political class). And we know that the secret police answer to the ruling class (i.e. Clapper, Comey, Clintons, Bushes, etc.). Hence, the secret police are doing what all secret police have done throughout history…acquired power, abused power, subdued the population, silenced the opposition, and supported the ruling elites.

World War III –

I am sure by now you have heard some rumblings about WWIII in more alternative and mainstream outlets. I am here to tell you the war has started…yes, it has already started!

Asymmetrical warfare is a concept of making war on your enemy in multiple ways, from multiple directions; quick and nimble tactics from unsuspected directions. It is unconventional warfare. It is designed to throw your enemy off-balance and not allow them a clear path of response.

What we are seeing is this:

  • Russia attacked us when they hacked political operations during the 2016 presidential campaign.
  • Russia and her agents are behind multiple cyber-attacks against the US and our allies as recently as last week.
  • Russia has openly challenged the US militarily with armed fighters vs. our intelligence gathering aircraft.
  • Russia continues to challenge US sovereignty by air and naval intrusions of US controlled airspace and water. The challenges have been both intelligence gathering and strategic aircraft, submarines, and intelligence gathering ships.
  • China has used North Korea to militarily destabilize the Asian Rim area in direct opposition to American interests.
  • China hacked US government computers systems repeatedly in the last couple of years. These were massive breeches and data acquisition.
  • China continues to openly and directly challenge the US by establishing military bases in contested China Sea areas.
  • North Korea has used military intimidation against her neighbors, especially South Korea and Japan (US allies) directly challenging the military interests of the US.
  • North Korea continues to openly challenge the US politically and militarily with the testing of ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons.
  • North Korea has placed two military satellites strategically over the US. Intelligence reports have confirmed that these satellites appear to be, and are highly likely, capable of EMP strikes.
  • Iran continues to regularly challenge the US militarily in the Middle East, primarily minor naval operations. They even captured two naval vessels and briefly held US sailors prisoner.
  • Iran continues to build its nuclear capability. The increased capability of Iran’s on-going nuclear program was financed through cash payments by President Obama directly to Iran via pallets of cash delivered by private jet.
  • Iran has armed and is using puppet states to combat US interests through international terrorism.

And the list goes on. We are in a de facto state of war. Mostly so far it is a cyber war, one we are losing. There are some limited military operations, none of which have gone to a state of open engagement…yet.

But, here is the main point…one that should gravely concern you…we have all these international players openly working against us in a virtual war, but we also have all the internal political players at war against the Constitution…at war with the American ideal…at war against the American dream of our Founding Fathers.

Clapper even openly stated that our institutions are being assaulted from external and internal enemies. He correctly identified the external enemies (i.e. Russia), but he is attempting yet another deception against us, a lie of biblical proportions…he, James Clapper, is part of the internal assault. Actually he is part of the leadership assaulting our country, assaulting our President, and most importantly…assaulting our Constitutional Republic. Clapper, along with Comey and others, are traitors…in my mind they have committed treason.

We are in a World War…a coalition of countries – Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, and Syria – are engaged in asymmetrical warfare against the United States of America.

We are in a Civil War…a coalition of the ruling/political class along with the elites are engaged in political warfare to overthrow the President of the United States and bring down the United States of America as a constitutional republic and replace with it with a totalitarian state.

And we are losing both wars.

Trump White House is Lying –

The Trump administration released a statement on Monday (5/15) that the recent cyber-attacks (last week and Monday) didn’t affect any US government computer systems. That is a lie! I have personal firsthand knowledge that the cyber-attacks last week brought down the largest federal emergency resources dispatch website five days ago. And it was still down as of late Monday morning.

I also have personal firsthand knowledge that multiple cyber-attacks were mounted against, and impacted, the Department of Interior’s entire computer and email systems last week. And there is still some residual affect as of Monday (5/15).

And who knows how many other Departments and Agencies were attacked.

So, ask yourself…Why would the Trump administration lie about government computers being cyber-attacked?

Summary –

Once again I am informing my website visitors that we are in some very tough times. On any given morning we could find ourselves in an open state of a shooting war in the world…or in a brutal and violent civil war started by those that wish to destroy America.

Is this credible? Test me on it. Look back over the last 2-1/2 years and the information I’ve been putting out about our government, the coup, the secret police, the people like Comey and Clapper…all of it. I’ve been right all along. And I am right now.

I urge you to continue to prepare. But, I also just as fervently urge you to not panic. There is no need to. The wars that are taking place right now are at a very high level and don’t affect people at our level in our daily lives…yet. There will come a time when it does…and it will be bad. But, that time is not yet.

Go about your daily life giving thanks for the blessings you have. Be grateful for and enjoy the time you can spend with your family. And go outside and do something as something as simple as take in the beauty of a blue sky morning.

Be prudent, prepare, but don’t panic. Panic will do you and no one else any good. What I want you to do is to listen to that little voice inside of you…and follow it. Listen to its promptings, its quiet whisperings, and allow it to guide you in doing the important things in your life. You need to.

In a bigger picture, I am monitoring the situations closely and will continue to provide updates through the website as I feel confident in the validity of the information. Until then…know that I care about you and your family very much. I can honestly say that I love my website supporters and visitors. That is you

SitRep – 3/16/2017

We are sinking!

We are sinking further in debt. We are sinking further into political chaos. We are sinking closer to civil war. We are watching a coup take place to over throw the President of the United States.
I have never been more pessimistic about the current state of affairs of our country as I am now. Even during the reign of the radical Marxist Obama we were never in such danger as a country. We are on the verge of losing our Constitutional Republic.

Sure, I could be optimistic, positive, and I could say things are great, we have a great President, the market is up, jobs are growing, people are happy, we are heading towards making America great again.

However, I would be both wrong and dishonest. America is in dire peril at this point. Politically we couldn’t be in more dangerous waters than we are now. President Trump is very close to being overthrown by a coalition of some of the most despicable, detestable, and dangerous people this country has ever known. And it is coming to a crisis point.

But let’s take it one step at a time…

Debt –

Government debt continues to increase, even under Trump. This year the US will acquire at least another half-trillion dollars of debt. This is not sustainable in any known universe. Then you add another 100 – 200 trillion in unfunded liabilities on top of the actual debt and there is no possible escape.

Public debt continues to increase. This is the total amount owed by all levels of government. That debt amount is well over 23-trillion dollars.

Household debt has now returned to 2008 pre-crash levels. Total household debt now sits well over 12.5-trillion dollars. That amount grew by half-trillion in 2016 alone.

Combine the government, public and household debt amounts and you have nearly 36-trillion dollars…$36,000,000,000,000.00 worth of debt out there in our economy!

No one…not a single person…can predict a positive outcome with that kind of a debt burden on a country’s economy.

Pension Funds –

California tri-plan pension funds, by themselves, are over a trillion dollars underfunded. That means it would take a one-time contribution of $90,000 per California household to bring it just to the break-even point. But, starting the next day the pensions would once again be underfunded due to employee and government contribution shortfalls.

A New York teamsters pension fund ran out of money last month.

Ten more teamster funds have applied for permission to reduce payments to retirees.

Hospital pension plan in New York has failed as of March 6th.

The Dallas police and firefighter pension fund that I began reporting on last year is done. They had record bulk withdrawals from retirees last year that had to be halted by court order. Then they went into negotiations to stabilize the fund. Those negotiations failed. As of last month…the fund is now insolvent.

Economic experts are calling the pension fund crisis a “tsunami” and that tsunami has started…the dominoes are falling. State and local government pension plans are underfunded by well over 5-trillion dollars. The top 25 corporate pension plan alone are underfunded by a quarter-billion dollars.

Exactly how do you think the “underfunded” amounts are going to be handled?

I’ll tell you…either the retirees will lose their benefits or taxpayers will pick up the tab. Either way the economy gets stuck with another multi-trillion dollar bill!

Add the 15 – 20-trillion dollars that pensions are underfunded to the previously mentioned debt problem of 36-trillion dollars. Now we are looking at an economy that has a $51,000,000,000,000 – $56,000,000,000,000 sinkhole waiting to crash it all in.

How in the world does anyone…and I mean anyone…see any way out of it? Well, any way out that can be close to defined as non-catastrophic?

Politics –

No SitRep would be complete without a discussion about politics. Let’s do an easy summary…President Trump is in big trouble. He is a terrible politician. He is losing. As I mentioned in my last SitRep he has a vast political coalition working against him.

To refresh your memory:

  • The man in charge of Democratic Congressional effort to overthrow President Trump is Chuck Schumer.

  • The man in charge of the Republican Congressional effort to overthrow President Trump is John McCain.


  • The man in charge of the civilian effort to overthrow President Trump is Barak Obama.


  • The main person coordinating the financing of the effort to overthrow President Trump is George Soros.


  • The people in charge of the secret police (FBI, CIA, and NSA) effort to overthrow President Trump is FBI Director James Comey and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.





But, notice my use of the term “overthrow”…that would indicate something other than simple politics. Something far more sinister…and it is.

Trump Wiretapped –

Over the weekend Trump made the accusation that he, along with the entire Trump Tower (meaning his staff), was wiretapped at the order of President Obama. Let’s face it…it is either true or not. It’s that simple.

If it is not true…then why would Trump make that accusation? If the secret police didn’t target him for wiretapping it will be discovered and then Trump will have lost all of his credibility. Would Trump want that? Would Trump’s enemies want that? If Trump was not wiretapped, why would Trump make that accusation?

But, is it true? How else would have the secret police been able to leak to the press all the Trump and staff phone conversation content that they have?

If it is true (which I believe it to be)…then we have a Constitutional crisis on our hands the likes we’ve never seen before. First of all let’s establish one thing right now…the FBI, NSA, and CIA illegally wiretap (eavesdrop) on American citizens all of the time. That fact has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. The FBI has been a political arm of the government for decades. And that as well has been proven true beyond any shadow of a doubt. Many Presidents have used the FBI as a political operative tool. Obama used them to attack the Tea Party groups, Patriot groups, and pro-Consitutional groups in conjunction with the IRS. The FBI relished that opportunity and they have a long history of anti-American deep state work. The CIA and NSA are even worse.

There are already claims that “if” it is true it may have been done through the FISA court. Let’s clear this up right now…I have written extensively on the FISA court…it is 100% unconstitutional, illegal, and nothing more than a self-justifying tool used by the secret police agencies in the US (FBI, CIA, NSA, etc.). There is ZERO basis or allowance for a secret court system in the Constitution. Actually, it goes much further than that, the Constitution specifically disallows anything that even remotely resembles a FISA court system. It is the antithesis of everything that our Founding Fathers believed in. The FISA court system is a direct import from the darkest parts of the old Soviet Union and other totalitarian states.

Let me get back to my point…if it is true that Trump was wiretapped we have 100% proof, undeniable evidence that:

  1. Shadow government -deep state- exists.
  2. The secret police agencies (FBI, CIA, NSA, etc.) have all become totally corrupted and are working to install a totalitarian state.
  3. There is actually a coup to overthrow Trump and our Constitutional Republic.
  4. We are screwed.

Overthrowing Trump –

This isn’t simple politics we are talking about. We are talking a well-coordinated, well-funded overthrow of the President of the United States by the political class and ruling elites.

I have been warning specifically about this since last year. The left-wing radical extremists (democrats/liberals/progressives/RINOs) don’t want Trump because he is a successful capitalist. The Republicans don’t want Trump because he is not one of them…not part of their club. Libertarians (civil-society and purists) don’t want him because Trump advocates for some liberal/progressive polices and programs. Some true-believer conservatives don’t want him for the same reason on top of the fact that Trump is a big-spending advocate.

But, the largest and most dangerous group of people that don’t want Trump as President are those I refer to as “shadow government.” Others refer to the same group as the “deep state”. And the country’s secret police agencies (FBI, CIA, NSA, etc.) fall squarely into this category of shadow government. And remember, regardless of what you call them, they have only one goal – a totalitarian state where the federal government is in control of everything…including virtually every aspect of a person’s life.

The situation we have now is unlike any other we’ve ever had in the history of the US…a coalition of evil deeper than it has ever been. You have all the political groups mentioned above, multiple anarchist groups, and the shadow government all working with a common goal…to overthrow President Trump.

Remember also, you now have former CIA and NSA leaders coming out and openly disparaging the President and calling into question everything about him…including his suitability to be President. They are working this attack in coordination with the current secret police leadership.
However, and that is a very big however, the real problem is not the overthrow of Trump…it is what comes after him should he be overthrown. Never would our country be more vulnerable to a complete change, a transformation, than a power/leadership void, a vacuum, left by the ouster of Trump.

The Constitution clearly outlines that the President would be succeeded by the Vice-President. But, I question if that Constitutional process would actually be followed. Wouldn’t the country be the most vulnerable after the first true coup-based overthrow of a President?

Coup or not?

Yes, it is serious enough to use that term. I wrote about it in my last SitRep…there is an active coup against Trump taking place right now. Really?

The UK Express reports, including evidence, that senior Republicans are part of the coup against Trump.

Former AG Eric Holder admitted that there is a coup taking place against Trump and that Obama is one of its leaders.

Bryan Dean Wright, CIA intelligence officer, claims –with no qualification– that there is a coup taking place within the intelligence community against Trump.

John Schindler, CIA operative, states categorically that there is a coup taking place against Trump…and that he personally supports it.

Even Rush Limbaugh admitted late last week that a coup is taking place.

And yes, there is even more evidence that a coup is taking place, it is all over the media. My military contacts tell me that there is talk of it amongst some of the military commands as well. No, don’t worry about the military being a player in a coup. At least not at this point. The discussion taking place that I am referring to is how to prevent certain members of the military from taking part in the coup.

Is a Coup Possible and/or Probable –

Before I give you my final thoughts on the coup against Trump I want to talk about the possibility and probability of a coup occurring.

Possible means is something is able to be done, the power or capacity to make something happen.

Probable means the likelihood of something to occur.

In the context of possible and probable of a coup against Trump:

  • 100% possible that a coup is occurring against Trump.
  • 100% possible that a coup can be successful against Trump.
  • 100% probability that a coup is taking place against Trump.
  • 60% probability that a coup against Trump will be successful.
  • 35% probability that the coup against Trump will turn violent.

What Does This Mean To You & Me –

Once again…there is only a 35 – 60% probability that the anti-Trump coup taking place will directly affect you. But, if it does it could range from a mild disruption of services to an attempted implementation of martial law due to wide-spread violence. And that martial law implementation, in some areas, could be violent as well.

Once again…the #1 priority in any emergency, disaster, and especially in a grid-down is the ability to protect yourself, your family, and your community from violence. And that violence could come in the form of mobs, gangs, or an attempt at police state martial law. It is vital that you have the ability and wherewithal to provide sufficient defense to prevent harm coming to your family and/or community!

After the ability to protect against violence, comes anything and everything that you can do to be as independent of the “system” as possible.
Prepper Group
Understand this…to accomplish the above you must band together with other like-minded people. Failure to do so will result in the failure of you and your family to have a positive outcome to what has a high probability of falling at your feet.

Summary –

I hope you take me seriously. I have been laying out this case for quite a while now. We see it coming closer to fruition every day. We see the violence on the upswing. We see the politics getting uglier. We see the secret police becoming more involved. We see the coup leadership openly admitting their involvement. We see their plans being carried out every time we watch or listen to the media.


If you asked why I talked about the economy earlier in the SitRep here is the tie-in…the usefulness of a market and economic crash. The market and economy could be used as a tool to bring Trump down. It could also be used post-coup to implement wide-ranging transformation to the US…read that as implementation of a totalitarian state. What better motivation for citizens as a whole than a market/economic crisis of huge proportions to convince people that changes are needed? Sheep to the slaughter. People crying for law & order, pleading for safety and security. The weak populace accepting anything to meet those needs.

But no, you shouldn’t panic. PLEASE do not panic. Panic and fear will prevent you from making sound and rational decisions. Remember there is still a 40% probability that the coup will not be successful. And, an even greater possibility if it is was successful, it wouldn’t directly affect you immediately or violently.

I am asking you to do the following:

  1. Raise your Situational Awareness of what is happening and why.
  2. Think through multiple scenarios of what could happen to you, your family, and your community should the coup prove successful. Especially scenarios if it turns violent, whatever reason.
  3. Compare your preps to the scenario outcomes that you have developed.
  4. Work at –do something– to offset the negative impacts of those outcomes. In other words, reduce the probability and/or severity of those outcomes on your family and community.
  5. Pray!

This is not the time to lose your head. This is not the time to flee to your cave. This is not the time to scream “Doomsday!” to your family or neighbors. But, all evidence clearly points to the case that we are in the most perilous of times that our country has ever seen in modern history. Never have the forces of evil, pure evil, aligned themselves with each other to take down our Constitutional Republic.

Only individuals, at the individual level, can make any difference now. It is about the individual and the things they do…or don’t do…to prepare their family and community for what is coming.
