There’s no question that another economic crisis is coming. The only real question is when.
One economic guru after another has been predicting an economic collapse ever since the housing bubble burst in 2008/2009. One of the big driving factors behind their predictions has been the huge federal debt, which just seems to keep rising more and more.
What’s making that even scarier is how the government has been spending money in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been said that the only way that Congress knows to deal with a problem is to throw money at it.
They’ve definitely shown that with their reaction to the pandemic, approving more than 3.4 trillion dollars in “relief” spending. Of course, that figure includes a fair amount of money for pork projects as well.
The scary part is that the government “paid” for this by borrowing money from the Federal Reserve, which is supposedly an independent agency, but in fact is marching along with the government.
In supposedly paying in this way, they created money out of thin air. Having learned how easy it is to do that, I’m just wondering how many things are going to be paid for the same way.
All the way until the economy collapses under the weight of all that debt. It’s not a matter of “if that happens,” it’s a matter of “when.”

It’s hard to predict how the government will react to an economic crisis, a lot will depend on who is in office when it happens. But there are a few things we can take as sure:
- The government will work to protect itself, even at the cost of the citizenry. All governments do this.
- There will be cries for government aid. As we saw during the COVID pandemic, those will become politicized, with both sides trying to add a lot of other things to the relief bills, making them hard to pass.
- FEMA will be expected to rush to everyone’s aid. Since they are short of resources and out of money, the only way they’ll be able to do that is to take the needed resources from others.
- The government will use the situation to increase their control over all our lives.
FEMA is the real danger to the American people in a time of financial crisis. Of all the government agencies, they are the one who has the authority to deal with citizens during a time of crisis. The problem for you and I is that their authority is so vast in times of crisis, that should they use it all, it would be worse than living in a police state.
There are a few specific things that FEMA can do during such a time, each of which requires different strategies to foil.
FEMA’s authority to confiscate supplies for redistribution is famous. While they haven’t used it yet, the threat of it is very real.
Originally, this authority was given so that FEMA could requisition food from manufacturers, distribution centers and stores. But as with anything else the government does, there’s just enough wiggle room in the way laws and regulations are written, that they can be reinterpreted to allow FEMA to take food from anyone who has it.
That means they could conceivably come and raid any of our stockpiles.
The solution to this problem, of course, is to make sure that nobody knows what we’ve got. In other words, implement good OPSEC (operational security) about our plans and preparation. But it’s going to take a bit more than that.
If you and I are still nice and plump, when everyone around us is losing weight, it will bring us under suspicion. Someone will notice, tell someone else, and eventually it will get to the ears of someone in FEMA, who will probably come knocking on our doors.
One key to keeping our relative affluence secret is to ensure that we are losing weight like everyone else. That means eating a survival diet, not eating everything we want to. As long as we’re losing weight like everyone else, it won’t look like we’ve got a lot of extra food sitting around.
At the same time, accept whatever government handouts are being passed around. If everyone is receiving food from FEMA and you aren’t, that can raise suspicion to. In fact, it would help to make it a bit obvious, trying to work out a way to go with your neighbors, so that they see you getting help.
Finally, make sure that you don’t have everything stored at home. No matter how careful you are, something can go wrong and someone can find out that you’re not in as bad a shape as everyone else.
If that results in a FEMA raid on your home, you don’t want them to get everything. A cache or two of food in remote locations can help ensure that you’re going to still have something.

One of the scariest powers that FEMA has is the ability to relocate people at will. Intended to give them the ability to help people evacuate from danger zones, the problem is that there are no limits to that power.
They don’t need people’s permission to relocate them. They can do it on their own authority, regardless of people’s desire.
Should FEMA start relocation drives, it will most likely start out looking benevolent. They won’t start out by raiding neighborhoods, clearing out people and loading people on trucks.
It will start with them looking for volunteers who are willing to relocate. The strong-arm tactics won’t come until later.
Still, those early actions can provide us with warning of what is to come. Knowing that will allow us the option of either getting out of Dodge and going to someplace where FEMA isn’t relocating people, or working out a plan to hide when they come looking for us.
They can’t clear out people from everywhere at once, so by following their pattern, it should be easy to determine what areas are safe to move into, while they clear our neighborhoods. We can then work our way back home, after they’ve gone.
Implementing Martial Law
Any move to implement nationwide martial law will definitely be an inter-agency effort.
There’s no way that FEMA has the manpower to do it by themselves. Nevertheless, we can count on them being right there in the forefront, coordinating efforts, when that time comes.
Supposedly, martial law can only be implemented to protect the citizenry from the government, when the government can’t do its job.
But somewhere along the way, the definition of martial law seems to have changed from protecting the citizenry to protecting the government from the citizens. That’s what we can expect them to be focusing on, if FEMA ever implements martial law.
Related: What the Government Can or Can’t Do Under Martial Law
Should this happen, we’ll need to keep a low profile. It’s hard to say how far FEMA will go in implementing martial law, but one of the first things that they will probably do is to start seeking out dissidents and rounding them up.
If there is a Democrat in the White House at the time, “dissident” is spelled: C O N S E R V A T I V E, G U N O W N E R, and a host of other terms which can be applied to you and I. It won’t mean ANTIFA or any of the other leftist groups who love to riot and cause damage.
The only solution to this is to keep a low profile.
Don’t be the one speaking out against the government. Don’t complain about what’s going on.
Be the grey man as much as possible, so that you don’t attract attention to yourself.
Along with martial law, we can expect FEMA to start confiscating firearms. Those on the political left will use any excuse they can to take our guns away, and the rising crime that goes with a financial crisis will give them a handy excuse.
They will react the same way that the Democrat mayor of New Orleans did during Hurricane Katrina, using the opportunity to get guns out of citizens hands.
Related: What Do You Think About These 5 States’ New Gun Control Bills?
Regardless of how they go about confiscating guns, you don’t want to put yourself in the position of fighting back. Oh, I know there are a lot of people saying “Over my dead body” out there; but if you fight back, that’s exactly what it will be.
Unless you are willing to die to make a political statement, which will probably be misreported by the media, then taking a stand against armed officers is a losing battle. Even if you win the first round, you won’t win when they bring in the second round.
This isn’t to say that there isn’t a time to fight. It’s just to say that you don’t want to be in the position of fighting alone. Rather, if you are that strongly against the government taking guns away from people, get together with a group of others and take a stand in a more meaningful way.
In the meantime, make sure that you have guns which are well hidden, so that if government agents search your home, they won’t find them. Allow them to find some things; but not everything.
That way, they can go away feeling like they’ve accomplished something, cleaning you out. But you’ll still be armed and able to defend yourself or join the resistance, if that becomes necessary.
You’ll have to decide if storing guns in your off-site food caches is a good idea or not, but you’ll definitely want to store some ammo there. Make sure it’s for the caliber of firearms you’re going to hide, so that you have plenty to work with, should that time come.

IF it gets to the point of a nationwide thing where FEMA has to act, they won’t be able to find their backsides with both hands. They can barely function with small, local disasters.
Oh, they’ll find their backsides quick enough. They always manage to put 700 pounds of flesh on anyone they feel is out of line.

So ignorant is the best defense? The real hero of the show ‘Hogans Heroes’ was Schultz “I Know Nothing!” Me: using the Jedi mind trick “I am not the one with food or weapons you are searching for …” What a message on your epitaph … (not that I disagree …) but it seems kind of weenie. Blend in … take offered gooberment food that you don’t need because you prepared in advance, keeping food from people who need it. ‘Don’t fight for the vast majority of your rights or guns … because one or two guns will serve you better as you will be around to fight another day.’ Sounds like a defeatist message, of someone who lost the war long ago.

So, Orion, please proceed. Scream and yell. Smash buildings. You saw the effect storming the palace had last month. It got troops stationed in the district of corruption from as far away as Hawaii. Say What? National guard units from Hawaii were called in to defend the pansies in d.c. Like there are no national guard units available in the contiguous 48? No. You don’t want to use national guard units to put down the citizens in their home state. You want to send guards from Mass. down to Alabama and vice versa. You don’t want to use Mass national guard in Boston. You want to use them in Mobile. They are more likely to fire on folks they don’t know than they are to fire on folks they might know. “I don’t want to shoot Cousin Bill. I won’t fire on folks where I think I may know some of them or even know most of them.”
I was merely asking … I don’t know the answer … it just seems from an outsider looking in … going with the flow, as they push you onto the cattle cars headed off to your neighborhood death camp … doesn’t seem like much of an alternative. We prepare, we gather food, and necessities of life, and are told to go with the flow? Maybe that’s best … However …. with that said, me: I’m old … the fight appears to be gone from my fading eye sight … and yet …. all I really have is my principles, and love for my country .. what kind of impact could I make?
I am certainly not getting on any cattle car to nowhere. I didn’t get to be this old being a sheep. Just quietly slip away and go my way.

Orion, he did not mean to be ignorant, but to remain aware of the situation while not attracting unwarranted attention to yourself. If you choose to make yourself a target, then go ahead. I’ll try to remain obscure and appear to be just another “deplorable peasant” not worth the effort.
If that doesn’t work, then initiate alternate means of protection.
Just a few practical considerations on ‘confiscation’ and how it works: first, food; there is no record of food you have bought or produced yourself—so, if and when they come, let them find a little something to justify their job title. The impetuous will be to confiscate as much as fast as possible. The searchers will hope they have surprised you, so make sure they think they have. You cannot fool a seasoned searcher but you can convince him its more trouble than its worth to keep looking. Hide the rest in an inconvenient location. The more they find, the less they will search. Ask the representative where you can go to get your share of the confiscated food. It they take yours to ‘redistribute’ without giving you a receipt then there will be no record of what you are entitled to. Ask about the redistribution schedule, etc; and then be there to get yours! Call your neighbors to let them know they are coming. Then follow them to the next house. Any crowd makes those outnumbered uneasy.
The same is true of guns—except, there may be a record of your latest retail purchases. If the alphabet agency has a record you bought a gun and don’t find it, they will lift rocks, boulders, tear up your house, dynamite your safe and overturn cars to find them. Separate out those guns less likely to be documented and hide them. Have the newer ones neatly arranged in your safe. (You can go through the subterfuge of faked bill of sales and so forth, but when they find they are fake—and they will—they will be back, so save yourself the trouble.) Make a pact with like-minded neighbors that if any agency shows up at your house or theirs, you will be on hand to ‘get in the way.’ Never resist unless you have an advantage in numbers and arms.
Anything you and your neighbors can do to make their departure expedient is advantageous. If they leave with something in hand and the uneasy feeling that if they had stayed longer things might have turned dangerous, you are less likely to get another visit—or, at least you will have more time to better prepare.
The only remedy for ‘organized’ tyranny is ‘organized’ rebellion. All else is chaos and entropy.
RR: There is no record only if you have always used cash, not bought at membership stores, Costco, Sams Club, and not bought on line. If you have done any of those things, there is a long electronic line. Even if you have just looked at websites like this one, there is a long electronic line. Think your identity is hidden by your nom de plume for this list? Think again. It is easy to go to your ISP and find out who you really are and everything your ISP has on you.
Unless you are using some internet connection that hides your information and is impenetrable to the wonks at NSA, your information is an open book to serious hackers.
Why not just KILL the Bastards and bury them deep in the damn woods ?!!!
Grim: Because cowards never come at you face to face, but behind your back. They come in a mob and overwhelm anything they see as a threat to them sucking in power and wealth.
You need to be sneakier than they are, more sly, and act stupid because that is how they see people who aren’t cowards. that’s how biden, pelosi, and the rest fall into one trap after another. They get arrogant, and arrogance means they forget to think and observe. They need us to be as violent as their houseboys, antifa and the blm. Like good nazis, they’re going to wipe out both groups ASAP because they no longer need them.

I have the inevitable club card at my local grocer that they ask me to swipe every time I come in. I was using it to get the digital coupons downloaded , some of which were good for a month at a time, in case I might need to purchase that later on in the month. At the time it was a reasonable thing to do, but I am seeing how it actually works, with less of the coupons directed at products I buy, and more directed at things like pet foods(dog died 2 yrs ago, not replaced yet), baby products(I’m well over 60) and EXPENSIVE “organic” products. My organic stuff comes from my garden. I know I should stop with the card swipe-but am too set in my ways to do it. Will they come looking for my grocery stash- probably, but out in the boonies where we are, they may have bigger problems on their hands, than how much food Imight be storing rather than eating..
Government’s greatest fear is 3 person militias.

I think most goobermints are too screwed up to do much if there is serious resistance. While they have mostly managed to get their way in this latest goat rope they have only managed to do so with the almost total compliance of the population.
Unfortunately, there are too many people willing to fall in line with whatever the goobermint tells them to do. Look at the massive lines to be “tested” for the plague. I have not understood from day one why someone who is symptomless would go sit in line to be tested. I have much better things to do, such as trimming my toenails, to sit in line for hours to be tested for a disease whose symptoms I don’t exhibit.
The next exhibit in the case is the vaccinations. With everyone screaming to be first in line, it winds up that it is like herding cats trying to get an orderly distribution of the vaccination. I don’t know how other cities are doing in the vaccination program with the ferocious weather they are experiencing, but once again, LA is a herd of cats getting vaccinated.
The problem with goobermints is that everyone wants to be in front of the camera. They want their 30 seconds of fame. They aren’t so much interested in actually doing their job as they are getting praised for the fine work they aren’t doing.
Remember Bush Jr.’s high praise, “You’re doing a fine job, Brownie”? Except Brownie’s only expertise in the Katrina Rescue was getting in front of cameras with his emergency gear on.
I think folks give goobermint more credit than it is due. If they don’t get compliance all they can manage is to wring their hands and beat their breasts complaining about non-compliance keeping them from doing their jobs.
I may be off base 180 degrees, I think that if there is a gigantic crash what we will see is the goobermint outlawing using cash and requiring everyone to use goobermint issued credit cards. They will seize all bank accounts. Your 401K will disappear as will your IRA, CDs anything related to cash. The holding of cash will be outlawed as will the use of cash to make purchases. Everyone will be required to use the goobermint credit card and all groceries will be sold only in stores that accept only goobermint credit cards. Mom and Pop stores will be unable to purchase stock for their stores because only giant compliant food conglomerates will be “approved” for food sales.
We saw it with the lockdowns. Small shops were forced to close while WallyWorld and the other big box stores somehow were vital and remained open.
I think it wlll be a lot more insidious than storm troopers smashing in your front door with a battering ram. That will come later. Eliminating cash will give the goobermint the complete control they desire. Don’t misconstrue my comments. The reason Trump was so hated was because he wasn’t a member of The Establishment. Both dems and pubicans are The Establishment. Entrance into The Establishment is public office, high bureaucratic position in goobermint and, of course, the most important, big buck net worth with lots of goobermint contracts or personal contacts.
Well, I could rant on for hours, but it would serve little purpose so I will quit here. I think we are in for a long wild ride and I think the end result will be a breakup of the nation as presently composed.I only hope the breakup is mostly peaceful as opposed to the bloody massacre that the last attempt at breakup caused.

Be first in line for emergency handouts. Have those handouts on the counter or table, so that’s what is seen first if unwanted visitors enter.
This is why you stand your ground and you stand TODAY and fight, this is your country not theirs, they work for you not the other way around, first thing you do is get rid of that face cover and stop wearing it all together, it doesn’t prevent shit and it has been proven that it does more harm than good, do your research it’s out there, only reason FEMA will get involved is because YOU let it happen, once you let them take your firearms IT’S OVER and you will never see the light of day again!! I’m 52 and I already fought for my country once and I will do it again as a civilian. STOP letting them silence YOU!! They’re more scared of you for fighting back, not the othe way around!! For those of you that don’t know, the civilian world out numbers the military when it comes to firearms, and if you let them take your guns away….Thats Your Fault!! Anybody that is a hunter is a potential sniper…Get my drift ? They ain’t takin shit away!!
I just finished reading “Fry Their Minds,” an analysis of sniper movements starting with the Chapman sniper attack in Austin TX back in the 60s up to and including sniper and counter-sniper activities in the sandbox.
Very interesting read. I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone who is thinking resistance.
If you have not done this already LCC, try this video, WAR CASTLE By Sergeant Robort Horton, then expand your research after the video.
where did you find “Fry Their Minds”? my good ol’ google search not showing it.
LCC I did a duckduckgo search (is anyone still using big brother google?) and no book by that title came up. Your post here mentioning the book did but nothing else. Where do I find said book?
I still haven’t found “Fry Their Minds” myself but I did find http://the-eye.eu/public/murdercube.com/Snipers%20%26%20Silencers/FRY%20THE%20BRAIN%20-%20The%20Art%20of%20Urban%20Sniping.pdf. Don’t know if this is what LCC was referring to but…….
I goofed big time. Apparently my mind was fried. The real title is: “Fry Athens Brain: The Art of Urban Sniping . . . “ by John West. Available on Kindle and I suppose in hard copy also.

The dnc needs to stop churches from supporting conservative movements. Why? Because churches played a major role in defeating Hitler and the USSR.
Buy junker guns for junk prices. If they come demanding weapons, give them those. Dress down always, and act the part–you’re too poor to waste cash on a gun. If you have a dropdown ceiling, great, the more metal in hiding places, the harder it is to find anything. don’t fake it, but use what is there. niio
We natives have always choosen to either chance “dying while fighting” or “appear not to resist at all”. All while keeping traditions and oral histories alive. Today the resistance is still oral history still being kept or getting an education and fighting like the government with lawyers and judges of ourown. There are things of strength from both ways.
Appearing not to resist may be the most powerful resistance of all. It isn’t submission but it allowed us to live to live and keep our identity as well.
And Miss Kitty women are often capable of looking innocent, weak, and helpless. Not easy for me. I tend to be a bit in your face and prefere loud colors. Flying under the radar seems a bit too sedate but may be wise. Injuries and age .. are those liabilities or handicaps?
ClergyLdy: My heart lies south author EB de Trevino, a Texan, noted one major thing how Indians in Mexico kept the traditions and language. She called it sales resistance. They had good teachers, Aztec overlords like Malinche, Protestant slaves from the Lowlands, and the Jews of Europe, And, of course, our greatest example or sales resistance, Jesus. In Mexico today, socialists are less willing to mow down people than during the Cristeros War but only because of cell phones. Even drug lords are backing off their evil and they have the backing of the PRI. Cell phones can be blocked so other recordings have to be made. niio
Native Americans fought often from “Out of sight”…. from behind rocks and trees. Still wise. Fight in print or from an untraceable second computer and printer. Fight from out of sight.
Clergy and churches fought for rights. They pushed for recognition of God given rights and not government given powers. Governments grant privileges. God gave us rights. That was recognized in the original documents such as the constitution.
Speaking out publicly could end up in another “Long Walk” or “Trail of Tears”. If you must fight openly then Iet it be with superior numbers and skills like took out the 7th Cavalry and General Custer. By the way Miss Kitty, few know, but there were women among the Lakotah who fought alongside husbands and sons and won war bonnets full of feathers marking exploits and bravery. Women have always fought in one way or another in the wars of their people.
I actually hate violence but I love freedom.
ClergyLady: Closer to home, the Cherokee Widows, war of 1812, whose men–from peace towns–were massacred by Brits, wiped out entire contingents of English and Chocs. Even closer for us, Lozen, who’s family was poisoned with strychnine by scalphunters. She got sick, and walked away with her baby, only to pass out. When she came to, she went to camp and all of them, from babies to the elderly lay scalped. Word is, she killed hundreds in retaliation, but in the end the US cav refused to take her in.
Moskitos Indians lost most of their people in Nicaragua because they refused to fight against anti-socialist forces. Then Reagan pointed out, Jesus told his followers to buy swords. A few months later, there was no more socialist army in Nicaragua. And now the war is back thanks to the dnc backing the chicoms. this time, the people are armed.
I think it’s easier for women to stand there, wringing our hands and acting helpless.
(Woman runs out to greet the Fema forces.) “Oh Mr. Soldier, thank goodness you’re here! I’m just a poor lil ol’ woman…I would surely appreciate any help you gubment folks can spare to feed me and my babies. I’ve been trying sooo hard to keep things together…” (Start sniffling and dab at eyes.) “I was hoping that somebody would come by to give us some food…”
(The soldiers look at each other. Who wants to deal with a crying woman?) “Um, ma’am? We’re actually here to requisition supplies…”
(Look up shocked.) “What?!? You’re here to take? You’re talking about taking the food out of my babies’ mouths? But…but…”(Sobbing now) “We’ve got next to nothing… just some beans and rice, and a little bit of powdered milk we got from the food bank last month that I’ve been trying to make last…”
You get the idea. But, all kidding aside, I’m more concerned with a) vigilantes, who will probably be in worse shape than you and therefore more desperate, and b) the possibility of UN troops, brought in to “help quell the violence from xxxx” – fill in the crisis of the day.
The 1/6/21 “riot” was staged, in my opinion, to lay the foundation that military force will be needed to shut down future “riots”, or possibly “ensure the integrity of future elections” by bringing in the UN peacekeeping forces. Look carefully at what happens during the next series of elections…that will set the tone going forward. My guess is that there will be another “riot”, “attack” and most probably mass shootings of some sort. There will surely be “credible threats” that will necessitate the suspension of in person voting for some “red” areas. This means we’ve got, what, a year or so? At most? Unless they bring in troops to deal with “super covid 21”.
Miss Kitty: I hope your are wrong but I am afraid you have whacked the mole square on the head.
China wanted to buy the Port of Long Beach but where thwarted. What better way to get it than to be invited in to help quell riots ?
Miz Kitty and LCC: Yes! But I think this is only an excuse. The dems have far more to fear from antifa and the blm than us, and they know it. soros needs to take control of them because one more sham election is going to cause a lot of hardship for the left. A lot of blm are disgusted and many more getting afraid of their own leaders. sor was handing money to antifa, but none to the blm. biden wants everyone on welfare, and as the saying goes, idle hands are the devil’s workshop.
We’ve certainly lost rights and freedoms slowly over decades but more quickly since Covid and with less subtle cover up than before. Now its quite open and the rhetoric is more venomous.
ClergyLady: The dnc is is openly advocating Nazism. Most have no clue about Nazis because Hitler’s motives were not taught in school. Everything he wanted, the dems are doing today.
Hitler said, “I want to raise a generation of young people that will be void of a conscious, relentless, imperious, and cruel.”
“We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions.” –Adolf Hitler
“If there is no God, everything is permissible.” – Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Have You Heard About “The Great Reset” ?
That’s why I believe it’s best to fight from the shadows. Look at the French and Polish resistance against the nazis during WWII. The ones who went whooping and hoorawing down the street were the ones who either got shot dead where they stood or were sent to special interrogation where they were tortured until they gave up anybody they knew, just to be allowed to die.
There’s no reason to think that as vicious a civil war as this one (I believe will be) will see the Geneva Convention strictly adhered to by anyone involved, sad to say.
If you can keep a low profile, so much the better. If you can strike a blow for the Republic without unnecessary bloodshed through sabotage and misinformation, great.
But the villianization of the Right generally, coupled with the Dem-Com love affair with China (and their sterling civil rights record) and the obvious gun grab going on leaves me suspicious. Taking the US off fossil fuels, messing with the food supply from farm to table, increasing the national debt, printing money with nothing to back the currency, using the hatred of fringe groups to destroy the civil peace and advocating the destruction of private property as somehow “justified”, the increasingly open Marxififcation of schools, colleges and universities, as well as the democratic party…all of these things taken together point to a real desire to destroy the United States as we know it. But it begs the question, why?
The only solutions can be a) globalization or b) uniting with China. That is one reason Trump is hated and still being vilified. He was an outsider who personally benefitted from the US being a major world power and one of the richest countries in the world. Fwiw, I believe he also loves the country the way it was and was legitimately trying to turn back the clock to a time when America was looked up to as the shining city on the hill, beloved by many and respected by all for her strength, wealth and power. We were the big, tough kid on the block the bullies were afraid of, at least for a little while. We were the place where, bad as things could be for people, there was that gift of hope that anybody who worked hard could make a better life if not for themselves, then for their children. And people were able to do it, too. You could buy a house, raise a family, buy a car or maybe two and send your kids to college all on one person’s salary. There were good paying manufacturing jobs. There were steady jobs for unskilled workers that lasted twenty years that maybe didn’t pay as much, but were income. If you lived frugally, and the wife and kids pitched in, you still had a shot at educating at least one kid or buying a small house and being able to pay for it.
This is gone, now, except for the privileged few, in what can now be seen as a long term plan to destroy the United States from within by ripping away the opportunities for advancement by all people and keeping them for a select few.
Everything that has happened in the last thirty years has been carefully planned to leave us a divided, embittered, fearful and disillusioned nation of people who are willing to do whatever it takes to get a piece of the pie, who are sick of living off crumbs.
Doesn’t it seem odd that every time the economy improves, that race relations improve, that people start to feel just a little more hopeful about the future, that something comes along to snatch those hopes away?
This is why.
I neglected to mention the vilification of the Christian Church.
Thanks to generations of humanist teachings in our schools, the uplifting of a general coarseness in our society by the entertainment industry, and the mass media’s breathless accounts of religious leaders’ falls from grace, we have moved away from being a a godly country where religion taught people from cradle to grave the difference between right and wrong. Taught about fair play and helping each other. It wasn’t a utopia. People by nature are selfish, nasty and violent. People hate. But more people actually tried to act decently toward each other than not.
What is often forgotten is that the country fell into violence and corruption before, but a revival of faith would come and we would pull together again to work towards a common goal. When we as a nation turned back towards God, we would prosper once again. When we turned away from God and His teachings, we would decline.
If we were to pull out of this current downward spiral, we need a revival of faith like we’ve never had before.
So if you are among those who still believe, you need to pray. You need to pass the word to your family, friends and church circle to pray, because our lives and that of our country literally depend on Divine intervention at this point.
Miz Kitty: That was Hitler’s number one desire, to end Christianity. “worship of a dead Jew” as he put it. https://conservativecolloquium.wordpress.com/2008/12/14/hitlers-war-on-christianity-quotes/
And by Wild Bill Donovan, OSS (now CIA).
He appointed an atheist to head the Religions ministry. Rewrote the Bible. Forced churches to remove crosses and replace them with swastikas. He forced people to take part in New Age rituals and called space aliens ascended masters. Nothing of religion but allowed by the state.
Miz Kitty: Bullets are the least best means of revolution. Look at corona beer. For years they hired union busters to keep the pay low. workers going on strike were beaten and fired. they had to come up with something that worked without endangering lives. Every now and then, word would go out, do not buy corona! Workers would take bottle off the line, empty out some beer and refill it with urine. It worked. 1950s, E. Germany decided to actually go communist and collective all farms. That was their first stupid act on those lines. The next was, they announced it in summer. Farmers abandoned fields and livestock and moved to cities demanding jobs in factories. for the first time ever, states in Germany were forced to import food and the USSR freaked out. That wasn’t the first time German farmers protested. In WWII, nazis would confiscate most of their crops, so farmers started to soak sacks of grain with urine and water. When it was hauled off to warehouses, it would heat up, catch fire, and burn the warehouse.People in ag have a saying, talk slow think fast. Arrogant people think this means they’re stupid. Most folks in the city are from farming communities, and they get their point in, too.
When the Perons, who used unions to get in office, turned on the unions, unionists tried to protest and many were gunned down. Forced to work at gunpoint, meat cutters began to do wrong cuts, killers did not clean the animals right and cut holes in hides. Work in coolers went sour, with people forgetting to bait rats, which chewed holes in the walls and wiring and tons of meat meat to enrich the nazis spoiled. Any Jews caught were murdered, but most made it to safety in a new underground railroad based on America’s. Cubans slow work. do it in small increments and it’s not noticed. Yet, it cuts down on productivity and that costs money, something socialists like plantation owners hunger for.
There’s a thousand ways the unarmed battle and the dnc ain’t seen nothing yet. If the Hebrews knew a fraction of what we do today, Pharaoh would have run them out of Egypt, not wait to be humiliated by God. niio
Exactly…pray to God, but row towards shore, as the saying goes. By “attacking” them on both fronts, materially and spiritually, we can change this narrative that they are forcing on us.
Not everyone is capable of accepting that we’ve all been lied to for almost a century. The basis of those lies brings us squarely where we sit in this country and the world today. You won’t see these on mainstream television for a reason, they don’t want the truth to spread. If any of you can stomach the truth and are prepared for the ultimate red pill, watch this 10 part documentary, it’s worth every minute…
And the documentary “Hellstorm”…
Mica, we have been lied to for several thousand years, and the One World Order and DNC/Socialist/Communist elitists are extremely good at it, especially when willingly supported by the majority of the media to promote their social engineering propaganda.
From the article: “One economic guru after another has been predicting an economic collapse ever since the housing bubble burst in 2008/2009.”
When you ‘cry wolf’ for over a decade, people stop listening. Using this as the basis for fear, uncertainty, and doubt only exacerbate the number of those who stop listening.
While I do believe in preparedness, I do not believe in panic. In the words of Douglas Adams, “Don’t Panic!”. Proper prior planning prevents poor performance.
Lets look towards proper prior planning as a good practice, and not because there are those who are espousing panic, fear, uncertainty, and doubt.
Steve, I call that “practical prepping”. It’s always a good idea to be prepared for natural disasters, and also to reasonably prepare, within your means, for additional possibilities such as economic collapse, a real pandemic (not this propagandized COVID mandate crap), large scale civil unrest, loss of utilities either by natural or hostile events, or even war.
MY Two cents: I disagree with this article in so many ways.
One of my favorite sayings is “For evil to prevail all that needs to happen is enough good men to do nothing.” That, and a healthy does of scripture, guides my life.
If you have read scripture then you know the back of the book says we ARE headed for some difficult times ahead. IF you just cower and do nothing, they will put your butt in prison and do whatever they wish with you.
Another interesting saying, “In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.”
Personally I would much rather die fighting a battle I believe in, and take some of them with me (remember the battle of Thermopylae?) than see my wife and I thrown into a concentration camp.
The holocaust should teach us something. When the gov overlords start overreaching, try legal means to fight back, of course. But when it comes down to it, say your prayers and fight like hell. Make it hurt when they violate your God given rights.
This is the kind of attitude that started this country, this is the attitude we must have if we are to “keep” our country.
“The most import thing every man should know…is what he would die for….because if you don’t know what you are willing to die for—-you don’t know what you are willing to live for.”—Author Unknown
Ya’ll have NO IDEA what you’re talking about. Bunch of misanthropic bunk here. What went wrong in your lives that you spend all your time on this insideous fear mongering and paranoia?
Take a walk in the park, watch some kids play on the swings, pet a puppy… but sheesh. Don’t waste your life on this self-imposed illness. YOU have the power to make yourselves feel better, to turn to the light instead of the dark.
mr rogers apparently you have the hate for human kind since you are the one ignoring the real problem and cower at any idea of standing up for yourself, let alone your counrty and whatever country that may be, but hey if you wanna be the sheep then knock yourself out, you’re probably going around wearing a mask as well, you need to wake up buddy, communism has already reared its ugly head globally, and it’ll be in your back yard next because you were asleep dreaming of walking in the park, you clearly have no idea whats going on around you, you gotta allot of balls barking up a tree that you have no clue about, you just sit back and keep your fanny perpendicular out of the way since your incapable of standing your own ground, we got this, just go back to your cornner and do whatever cowards do. this is a prepper/survival website, not the Alice in Wonderland site you were looking for!!
You keep talking in many articles about an “Up Coming Crisis”. Well trump is out of office and his goons are being sent to jail, any crisis is not going to happen or is already over.
The only crisis was a bunch of idiots panic buying toilet paper. How embarrassing for this country.
Lisa you are dead wrong, the crisis is here!! Most people see it, except for YOU and a few thousand others who rely on fake mainstream media, don’t you ever get the feeling that something hasn’t been right with society for a long time ?? That’s called corruption, it’s all around us Lisa, So what ? now that a criminal is in office it’s ok to except that because for so many years the media has programmed you to except that lies are ok and theres no need to fight back cause you’ll loose anyways ? That’s crap because they are trying to program and scare you into thinking that, since you were born your rights have been stripped away everyday, is that how you want to live ?? All I’m asking of you Lisa is to do your research and find out the truth because it’s out there and then you’ll be ready to fight because once you find out you’ve been lied to all this time, You’ll be ready to knock out their teeth!! Trust me on this ok.
I need help please. We are just not the type of people who can spend all that money on freeze dried food. I have purchased some small batches, but we had to use it when a family member got a high fever, body aches, and sickness. We think she had COVID, but no one else in the house got sick. We went into lock down and ate freeze dried food for 14 days. It was good practice and we LEARNED. The first thing we learned is that freeze dried food tastes TERRIBLE. Not just bad, but AWEFUL! We had three different brands. Our house has three adults and two kids under 12 (myself and my husband, our age makes us high risk. We made room in our two bedroom cabin for my youngest sister. She has her kids 49% of the time. Our dining room is now a boys bedroom. She tells me she is staying until the 8 year old turns 18 or she gets married. I am trying VERY HARD to find her a husband). No one liked the freeze dried food. Not even our dog who survived the first 8 weeks of his life on lunch scraps at a construction sight. He eats lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, hot peppers, and other sandwich toppers, but he does not like freeze dried food.
Can any one tell me where to buy long term storage food that tastes NOT TERRIBLE and for which I will not need to sell one of these kids (although I would not mind getting rid of the older one). KIDDING, mostly.
I REALLY need help with dealing with my permanent house guests. We laid down the rules when they moved in 18 months ago and… No one follows the rules. Don’t block access to the closet. It is ALWAYS blocked. Keep the egress to the backdoor clear. It looks like someone barricaded the door. PLEASE KEEP things tidy. HAHAHA. The 11 year old was eating lunch and dropped a piece on the floor. He kicked it into the corner. Oh, they brought their pet Chihuahua here. My sister CANNOT throw things away. My house used to be minimalist. Now it looks like one of those storage places exploded. I am so stressed about this. I have not been stressed in 35 years.
Warheit, I have a suggestion. Put the houseguests out, is one suggestion, another suggestion is to have consequences to their bad behavior. I had same problem with my brother and sister and their issues. Sister is needy, worthless husband, lazy child, Brother is militant and more helpful than my own hubby, but wasteful, at my expense. I had to love them from afar and made them move. Just suggestions. I have found that helped my own sanity when i made them move out on their own and deal with their problems of their own making that they decided to bring into my house that I was not going to accept. It’s a hard choice, but one that I made for my own sanity. I love them from afar now.
I would love to get rid of them. But I just can’t throw them out. My sister would be homeless.
Warheit, are you waiting around for someone else to do it for you? If you’re not willing to take care of the problem, then your only other options are to put up with it, or move to somewhere else and leave them all behind.
They don’t need people’s permission to relocate them.
So we are slaves then?
Every confiscator you kill is 10 less people they can confiscate FROM.
Your life to save 10 others is a rational exchange.
Also, there are many ways they can find your hidden stuff in your house.
Equipment that can see through walls, metal detectors, etc.
And if they feel froggy, they can just simply make you leave (aka relocate) and all your stuff will be left behind.
Stand and fight or kneel and be a slave.
Subterfuge only goes so far, especially when you have no bug out location, money, etc.
Most likely Fema will lock down big cities first.
Then once under control, begin expanding to more rural areas/towns.
Your local cops might try to lock down your local town/small city.
National guard will mostly be used to ‘protect’ government places first.
Lack of manpower is the government’s weakness.
Remember, each one of them you kill saves 10 others.
The choice is yours.
America won her war of Independance once the people learned to fight as much unseen as possible. It’s still not a bad way if forced to defend ones self. Also quick hit and run raids, “turn coat” spies. Don’t be obvious. Live gray man. Find like-minded individuals.
Personally I hate violence but I do believe in self defense. If the UN came after our citizens I could understand some offense and defense.
One of the first deaths at Bunker Hill was the brother of a many times great grand father. It didn’t take long to decide lining up to get mowed down was foolishness. My native ancestors had inadvertently taught the Anericans a better way. Shoot from hiding. Stay out of sight. Hit quick and move on. England complained they didn’t fight right… but look at who won. 🙂 subtlety and cover worked.
I plan on withdrawing consent to be governed here in a few weeks.
Letter is almost finished.
Will send that to the state I am in and the federal government.
Look up the pdf on withdraw consent to be governed.
Note: I pay cash for everything. Been doing so for a decade or longer.
