First We Gotta Know Whats Coming


The question on top of my thoughts these days is really just how this is going to turn out. This is a much different scenario than I have seen in previous years. Without fail most all SHTF studies involved a collapse of the Western financial system that would bring the world down with it. Not counting natural disaster, alien invasions and war of course. Yet I think there is evidence to suggest that what we are seeing today is more like the world intentionally bringing the West down instead, even if it brings them down too.

It also sure seems to me like many countries out there are prepping in their own ways too. Buying gold, placing claims and seizing fertile lands,  keeping their own production close to home. out right making new islands to claim etc. 

I don't have any proof but to me it almost seems like someone had a big world leader meeting and was told "oh ya we screwed up when we said the earth could sustain 10 billion people, we meant 8 billion" and now these same countries are all trying to start prepping at the same time and scrambling to hoard up everything they can before it all blows up. I keep thinking about the all the reports I read of shipping meant for the US ports that ended up being off loaded in India and then moved North too.

It's almost like the die has been cast and the world feels it is time to let the chips fall as they may. No more pussyfooting around the future. Maybe I am mistaken.

The news sites today are full of articles on China hoarding gold, cracking down on it's people and causing large riots. I wonder why? It isn't like China didn't already have it's people in a pretty much controlled tyranny state anyway. For the first time I have ever witnessed it seems like every nation on earth is taking the same general thing serious at once.

That kinda bothers me and in fact makes me start wondering if there wasn't some alien invasion somewhere that is not being reported on :)

So aliens aside we need to figure out how it will effect our local areas as much as possible. Hence my recommendation to find the largest geo-allied attitude group you can find and be in the middle of it as much as possible. That way when they start confiscating guns, land, gold or food you will have some warning and time to see a resistance forming. Beyond that I don't believe there is such a thing as a bad prep. Any of it can be useful and any of it can be taken from you too. I would imagine that land would be the hardest to take but if you happen to be smack dab in the middle of where some department of looting sets up a base you are out of luck I would imagine.

Plan for the best, which would be an area you can be productive and as self sufficient as possible but prepare to move and start over as lightly and as quickly as possible. 

If this time we are looking at a world wide financial war on the West my best guess is surplus production of any kind will be encouraged, promoted and left alone to flourish before too long as continuing the victim vote buying of the last few decades will simply be financially impossible for any government. 

Return on the government investment will once again be the rule not the key to winning elections anymore. Wont do ya a bit of good to pay off some of the countries student loan debt when everyone else is starving now will it?

Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!


  1. You need allies. They come in various levels of trust. But the few you trust armed with your life and freedom needs to know almost everything.

    Friends of the scriptural cord of three strands type. Ecclesiastes 4:
    The Evil of Oppression
    …11Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; but how can one keep warm alone? 12And though one may be overpowered, two can resist. Moreover, a cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

    It goes against the trust your MANY Friends and overshare American behaviors. But plenty of folks you think of as Friends will steal or betray you under duress.

    If you have more than 3 or 4 True Friends maybe you need to re-evaluate what a trusted friend vs buddy is.

    Betrayal is modus operation of Socialist governments.

    Survivors of the Holodomor that didn't eat the dead humans were those that hid barrels of potatoes and cabbage in the woods. If they thought folks were following them on "Firewood Gathering" they would go hungry that day. If they were discovered by neighbors, they risked being reported to the soldiers for the "REWARD" of food they would get. Ugly facts of human behavior and Communist SOP.

    So thus, various levels of trust and limiting information for grey man and security reasons. Gov.com (and Quisling "Friends") cannot steal something they don't know about.

    History has plenty of examples of Gov.com gone bad even the Proverbs of Soloman and Ecclesiastes speak to trouble from bad government. Nothing new under the sun.

    1. Nice comment Michael!!! and you get extra points for even knowing and mentioning the Holodomor. I doubt many would even know what you are referencing anymore but it does kinda fit what I see happening around the world this time in many ways.

  2. China is a dead man walking. Like America, it's financial empire is built on a house of cards. 15 of the 20 dirtiest cities in the world are in China. 85% of the water coming out of the tap is unpotable. Because males are valued by traditional chinese families more than females - female infanticide has resulted in an entire generation of chinese men who will not have wives. When China blows - and at some point, it WILL blow, it will be Mutiny On The Bounty. The collapse of their market and establishment may well destabilize us in the west.

    All is not lost. Turning things around will be remarkably easy. Americans have done it countless times before. Get rid of the corrupt banksters of the federal reserve. End the crony and vulture capitalism. Remove a certain tribe from positions of financial and political authority. People will invest in honest, fair markets. They will withdraw and protect themselves from predatory ones.

    Right now we closely resemble Weimar Germany. Our institutions are corrupt and run by criminals, degenerates, and perverts and cannot be trusted. They betray their nation in broad daylight and profit from it with no consequences. Eventually a populist strong man is going to emerge, either from the right or the left, and he will impose order of some kind - IF nothing is done. You can't run a country like this. You can't protect yourself in a dissolving country either.
    We see that in places that have collapsed. In Venezuela preppers and hoarders became hated targets. Their preps were looted by starving mobs. They were often punished by whatever authorities were present and treated like criminals.
    I watch the new world order through wide eyes. I know men are capable of mind boggling stupidity and vicious wickedness, history shows us that in great detail. To read about it and experience it, though...?

    I hope and pray the Smallhold holds fast, PP. If it ever falls, the rest of us will not be far behind.

    1. Filthie - Good comment. I agree with you completely but have to kinda give China a bit of encouragement. The Chinese are a very hardy people. Their government sucks I agree but I have known some remarkable Chinese who are pretty tough and very resilient. As a people they can take events and survive them better than most entitled Westerners can these days I think. Not saying they would end up doing it better than Westerners just saying they would be better than others and have a bit of an early advantage at hardship is all.

      I don't plan on having anything to really loot when the time comes. Can't say much but I am in the middle of a bunch of like minded people so my hopes are we can defend each other when/if the time comes. Either way if it falls I will still be on my own farm in one chemical form or another. :)
