Prepping For SHTF

Syrian Gas Attacks: Why Survivalist Prep

Want to know why survivalist prep? Look no further than the Syrian gas attacks in April of 2018. The chemical weapons attacks on civilians in Syria is an excellent example of why survivalist prep, this is the reason why we exist.

Not that chemicals weapons would be used in mass on the United States, but the use of chemical weapons on civilians has brought the world to the brink of World War III.

To view the full picture we need to go back to World War I. Chemicals weapons were used by various sides, and people were slaughtered in mass.

During World War II the use of chemical weapons was avoided. However, over six million Jews were slaughtered in camps at the hands of Germans using chemical weapons.

Realizing how devastating chemical weapons are, the world agreed to abolish their use.

Crimes Against Humanity

Parkland School Shooting And Problems With Society

Another day, another mass school shooting. This time the shooting was at a school in Parkland, Florida. There will be a group of people who blame the gun and ignore the underlying issues with society. Was the gun an issue in the shooting? The gun is no more of an issue than a spoon makes people fat.

Something has gone terrible wrong in society. What is making people, especially young people, turn to violence? Not just turn to violence, but to shoot up a school of defenseless children. We as a culture need to sit down and address the underlying issue.

People are supposed to have this thing called a “conscience” that is supposed to keep us in check. We are supposed to think about how our actions will affect those around us. We all have bad thoughts, such as beating the crap out of someone who wronged us. Regardless of the bad thoughts, our conscience is supposed to keep us on the straight and narrow.

Third Economic Downturn Will Be Our Undoing

One of the common questions posted on the forum is when will SHTF. When is something big going to happen?

Rather than a turd hitting a fan, what if I told you it was more like diarrhea hitting the fan? In the past 40 years we have faced 2 economic downturns that have had profound long term effects. The effects have been so slow that they ave gone unnoticed. Unnoticed that is until you look at the big picture.

Economic Downturn #1. Nixon took us off the gold standard, which caused rapid inflation.

For the most part people have no idea what the true value of their paper money is, as we have no tangible item to compare the value of paper money to.

Taking the U.S. off the gold standard has also allowed the Federal Reserve to print money out of thin air, which has also contributed to inflation.

Economic Downturn #2. Losing our shipyards in the 1980s, and the free trade acts of the 1990s. For the sake of discussion job loss will be combined into one category.

Gold Standard

World War of Religion

Time has an interesting article saying the world war of jihad is almost over. Osama bin Laden is dead, Al-Qaeda leaders are being killed with drone strikes, it finally looks like we have beat back the enemy.

The problem is, who is the enemy? While Al-Qaeda might be losing ground, radical Muslims continue to spread to Europe, Canada and the United States.

Al-Qaeda was based on an idea, ideas are much harder to kill the people. What was one of the driving factors behind Al-Qaeda? Islam.

Whether you like it or not, the war of religion is taking a different route. It is impossible for a group is peasants operating out of caves to bring about the downfall of Europe and the U.S. But what they can do, if infiltrate our society and use our own laws against us.

Over the next few years, maybe the next decade or so, expect to see the term “creeping sharia”. Its where sharia law slowly creeps into a society.

How Ready Is The United States for a Complete Collapse

How prepared is the U.S. for a total collapse?

Our lives are like a pattern – we go to work, get a pay check, pay our bills, buy food, repeat.

People have become so domesticated, we are like a family dog. The dog goes to the food bowl and waits to be fed. People go to the grocery store, or fast food places to buy food.

How would people react if the grocery stores were empty? Would people know how to grow their own food? Would people even have the resources to grow their own food?

Learning from experience

My chicken project has taught me a lot. The coop cost around $700. My 13 chickens at at 4 1/2 months old are eating almost 50 pounds of feed every 2 weeks. A buddy of mine asked what I would do for chicken feed during a SHTF / TEOTWAWKI situation.

My reply was the chickens would have to forage. Chickens come from a wild jungle fowl. Even though chickens have been domesticated for thousands of years, they still retain their instincts.

Worried about a war with Iran

Guys and gals, I am worried about the U.S. attacking Iran, and then the crap hitting the fan.

Let me rephrase that, I am worried about how Russia and china will react if Iran is attacked.

* During this article china will not be capitalized. As I have no respect for a communist government that oppresses its people.

Russia nor china want permanent U.S. bases in the middle east. An attack on Iran might be viewed as imperialism on part of the U.S. Meaning, we are encroaching closer and closer to Russia and china.

As Russia and china are backed into a corner, sooner or later something will have to give. If something gives, how well is the U.S. and the general public prepared for an all out war with a major world power?

Are the people ready to be rationed food?
Are the people ready to be rationed fuel?
Are the people ready to have their lives disrupted?
Can the U.S. afford another war?

As nations start to compete for resources, Iran is a gold mine.

Step 1 – demonize Iran so that the U.S. public think they have no other choice then to go to war. Its either go to war, or allow Iran to go nuclear.

Step 2 – invade Iran, enter into another decade long war in the middle east.

With the U.S. pulling out of Iraq and Afghanistan, we need a way to replace the military bases we are losing. How are we going to replace those military bases? By invading Iran.

Effects of Globalization on Global Conflicts

With tensions with china and the U.S. on the rise, what would happen if we went to war with china?

When you buy a product, do you read to label to see where it was made? How many “made in china” products do you see? I am willing to bet the majority of products you buy are made in china.

What do you think would happen if everything made in communist china was suddenly cut off from the U.S market?

Clothes, computer parts, shoes, toys,,,,, just about everything we consume is made in Asia.

What would stores like Best Buy and Walmart do without shipments of made in communist china products? How would the public react if they could not buy the latest and greatest tech toys? How would the auto industry react if they could not get parts?

How are we supposed to fight a war if we can not even make engines, transmissions, brake pads, computer chips, circuit boards and wheel bearings? How are we supposed to build ships without steel mills?

In the movie Patton starring George C. Scott, Patton made a comment that he knew the Germans were finished. The Germans had been defeated because they were using horses and wagons instead of armored vehicles.

Think about that for a minute, Patton knew the Germans were defeated when the Germans could no longer manufacture or maintain their vehicles.

Since communist china makes a lot of parts for the U.S.auto industry, where does that leave us? Will china only have to fight half a war? 1 – stop shipments of parts to the U.S. 2- destroy the limited manufacturing capability we have left.

National security has been sacrificed on the alter of free trade

Zombies Are Real

Yep, you read that right, zombies are real. Not real as in wanting to eat your brains, but real as in mindless people with no sense of reason and incapable of higher thought.

To live a survivalist lifestyle, one should be open minded, open to new ideas, flexible, open to suggestions and open to change. To be closed minded, to be inflexible and not open to change sets a limit on how well we can adjust to change.

What caused the Neanderthal to go extinct?

What caused Cro-Magnon Man to go extinct?

What caused Homo-Erectus to go extinct?

Was it their inability to adjust to climate change? Was it their inability to adjust to changing food sources? Were they open to new ideas?

Sheeple zombies

Sheeple are the people that say “we have done it this way 100 years, there is no reason to change now”. These are the people who resist any kind of change. When sheeple are forced to change, they get angry and develop feels of resentment. These are the people that are on a dead end road of life.

I wonder if some Neanderthal refused to change his hunting patterns with the changes in herd migration?

What would war with Iran mean

I feel that Iran has positioned itself to be made a victim. Iran is supposed to be developing nuclear power plants for peaceful purposes.

Why would Iran make itself out to be a victim? To rally support, and have other nations come to its aid. Playing the victim is one of the first steps of jihad.

What I fear, if any nation strikes iran, china will jump in to protect its supply of oil.

Buy Your Supplies and Stack Them Deep

As I am sitting here watching the news, there is little voice in the back of my head telling me the US is going to hit rock bottom. Unless Ron Paul gets elected, things are just going to continue to get worse. GOD help us if someone like mit or rick perry gets elected, because they are not going to help anyone besides the bankers.

What I see happening is tensions between the US and china and tensions between the US and iran to continue to rise. Compounded with that, congress is talking about cutting the defense budget.

Let me see if I get this right, iran is continuing to enrich uranium, and the US congress wants to cut money from the defense? When your enemies are building nuclear weapons, shouldn’t we at the very least maintain our current rate of military spending?

There are several directions I see the US during 2012:

1. iran builds a nuclear bomb, gives the bomb to a small group of terrorist who sneak it a cross the US-mexico border. From there its just a matter of time before a major US city has a nuclear weapon detonated in it.

Its not like a group of terrorist would even have to sneak a nuclear bomb across the border. Why not hire a truck and drive the bomb across? If 10 – 20 million illegal immigrants can find their way into the US, surely its not “that” difficult to get weapons across.
