WASHINGTON – A retired Army general is calling for the “forced resignations” of President Obama, other administration officials and the leadership of Congress for the direction they’re taking the nation, his list of grievances including the systematic political purge of hundreds of senior military officers in the U.S. military.
Retired Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely told WND he is calling for nationwide rallies and [...]

I recently received the following email from a reader:
I would ask you to advise all your readers to watch “Death by China”, (it is on Netflix), well before the Christmas shopping season. You can also watch a preview on you tube.
The US has lost 57,000 manufacturing plants to China, since Clinton signed away the US economy with the World Trade Organization agreement. Five and a half Million US manufacturing jobs, trillions of dollars [...]

Check out the following excerpt from WashingtonTimes.com article published on November 13th -
MOSCOW — Predicting the imminent collapse of the U.S. dollar, a Russian lawmaker submitted a bill to his country’s parliament Wednesday that would ban the use or possession of the American currency.
Mikhail Degtyarev, the lawmaker who proposed the bill, compared the dollar to a Ponzi scheme. He warned that the government would have to bail out Russians holding the U.S. currency if it collapses.
“If the U.S. national debt continues to grow, the [...]

As I look back over my own life and through the generations as far as our family is concerned, I think our biggest risk is not a collapse of the power grid, nor TEOTWAWKI, but financial hardship due to loss of employment, loss of a working partner, changing social circumstances or a slow, insidious reduction of buying power at a time when there is low income. So with this in mind here [...]

New Zealand Economic Collapse

Back in 1984 I lived in New Zeal and during the time the country’s economy collapsed. I was told by someone working very close to the incoming government that the country technically became bankrupt over the weekend after the 1984 elections. This meant the incoming government had no money in its coffers to do anything but stagger from day to day hoping [...]

DON’T WAIT TO BARTER!
Everywhere you look there are references to bartering, and how it will be an asset when shtf.
But why not use bartering now before the shtf to help enable you to get prepared?
Bartering is, by definition a system of exchanging goods and services without the use of currency.
Let’s face it, when the shtf there won’t be many people with any money to get what they need.
In today’s economy, there are far more financially challenged people trying to [...]

The Essence of Money or Tools for Trade
I know. I know. What does this have to do with prepping?
After the survival phase of any catastrophe comes the rebuilding. What I mean is in the prepping world lots of time and energy is devoted to BOB’s, food storage, defense, shelter, water purifiers, etc. What’s not discussed is after everything comes apart, how do we put it back together, especially if the banks are closed and the dollar is worthless.
Even though we [...]

Man. What a question! Why prepare?
Well, let’s take a look at what could be an endless list:
unemployment disability inflation/hyperinflation house fire car accident car breakdown divorce alien invasion earthquake tornado hurricane winter storm power outage/black out economic collapse martial law EMP attack solar flare drought crime wave flood race war world war chemical spill nuclear accident supply chain interruption government collapse volcanic eruption/super volcano asteroid/meteor impact invasion
I am sure I left some examples off – but that is quite a list. How many of these are people effected by every year? Lots! Preparedness does not always have to be for a world without rule of law or the end of [...]

Yeah – old news, right? All that is needed is to pay a little attention to the decisions of our own government makes supposedly made in our best interest.
I am a big backer of law enforcement – BUT am I the only one that is seeing a strange correlation between an ever increasing use of drone technology and Skynet? I want law enforcement to have the tools needed to fight crime – but it is looking to me like government is equipping LE of [...]

Catching up on some reading over at the Total Survivalist Libertarian Rantfest. Ryan over there mentioned about a video that Youtuber SouthernPrepper1 put up not too long ago asking the question:
What if you knew that between 6 and 18 months from now there would be an economic collapse – what would you do now to prepare?
Obviously hypothetical in nature as we just don’t know what the future holds. BUT, it definitely gets you thinking. If you somehow knew with 100% certainty that the [...]

The Bad Jobs Report Is Just A Very Small Taste Of The Nightmare That Is Coming
Another month, another bad jobs report. For the month of May, the U.S. economy only added 69,000 jobs and the unemployment rate rose to 8.2%. Many are calling this a total “disaster” and are worried that the U.S. economy could be headed back into another recession. Economists had been expecting [...]

The recent elections in France and in Greece have thrown the global financial system into an uproar. Fear and worry are everywhere and nobody is quite sure what is going to happen next. All of the financial deals that Greece has made over the past few years may be null and void. Nobody is going to know for sure until a new government is formed, and at this [...]

HOUSE BILL NO. HB0085 was submitted in Wyoming this past week and has caused quite a stir. Basically the bill requests a study to be done by the state to determine what the state must do in case of the collapse of the Federal Government.
The bill starts off by stating the bills purpose:
AN ACT relating to governmental studies; providing for a task force to study governmental continuity in case of a disruption in federal government operations; providing for a report; providing [...]

For years the unsettling violence and unpredictable nature of the Middle East has been concerning. Lately the tension between Israel and Iran has me concerned.
Though threatening words is nothing new – what is different now is the nuclear particulars. I am concerned that Iran will obtain a nuclear weapon. I am also concerned that Israel will strike in an effort to prevent Iran from having the capability of either developing the nuclear weapon – or using one.
Writing this I [...]

I have a few questions for our Elected Officials. There are a few things that I don’t quite understand that they have talked about and a few questions about a few things they just don’t talk about at all. The first question is what are the people doing that were on unemployment that have run out of benefits and still have not been able to find a job? What are they [...]

I believe we are standing at the top of a great mountain…….and about to fall over the edge. It will take a while to reach the bottom…but the path down will be bumpy and as we get closer – we will pick up speed.
Of course – I am using the above as an analogy for our economy today. I, like many others, just do not see the leadership in Washington that can make the correct decisions to lead our way to safety. [...]
