    Lessons In Urban Warfare: “People Will Die In Huge Numbers”

    SHTFplan Editor’s Note: Our friend Selco at SHTF School is no stranger to the realities of war. Having spent a year in the middle of a conflict that indiscriminately took the lives of thousands of innocent men, women, and children in the Balkan War during the 1990′ he is able to share a first-hand account of what the world as you know it may look like should it all collapse. Most of us theorize how such events may play out, but none of us is really prepared for them. Living in relative peace and prosperity most of our lives, the majority of Americans would find it almost impossible to even imagine what you are about to see and read.

    As disturbing as the following video and commentary is, it is something you need to be familiar with now, so that you can prepare your mind, body and spirit for the absolute horrors that you will witness right before your very eyes should the worst happen. 

    The following is a necessary, yet brutal, commentary and imagery. It provides some key insights into what we may well face in the future. A destabilization of life as we have come to know it is no game, no laughing matter, and not something that should be taken lightly.

    As Selco so succinctly noted in a previous article, ” if I had to be an animal, I was an animal.” 

    It’s about survival. That’s it.

    (Pictured: Snipers take aim at civilians in Sarajevo during the Balkan War. Circa 1992)

    *The following video contains extremely graphic imagery*
    *Viewer discretion is advised*


    We are at an interesting point in time. It might be a point that changes human history if some of those who rule us (sorry to call it like that but that is the situation right now) play their game and it escalates. I’m happy to know most of you have already prepared the proper storage and skills to try your best when the storm hits. Let’s hope we don’t ever need anything from this.

    If you have time, stop eating (but maybe get drink) and spend half an hour watching the video below. It is just out since 4th of September 2013 but shows some older video footage of people fighting for their survival in Syria’s current conflict. It’s bloody and may be disturbing for some, so may be don’t eat. I speak a lot about how I moved through city and fought in my survival course and see many similarities. Too many, so I had to take some breaks looking at this. Anyway, I have comments about this video below.

    [Selco Note: "Be aware that this video is clearly pro rebel propaganda. I do not take sides and have this video here for the urban survival and fighting in it."]

    3:33 and 11:29 You can expect whole kind of injuries, and being kid does not protect you at all. Both injuries looked horrible, but kid with the bloody head probably just lost part of his scalp, so it is good for him. Nature of fighting in crowded space is brutal. There is no discrimination with explosives and if opposing force thinks of you and your family and friends as nothing more than animal then everyone is target. Look for small parts of shrapnel, they can penetrate deep and go unnoticed.

    7:33 SHTF in your city is something like slow process of accepting the fact that everything around you is going to hell. I remember watching my city burning years ago, it looked like magic, big fires in city without electric lights, later I was looking how places that I knew for years disappeared from the face of the earth, and from my memory too. And some time later I learned too not to give a damn for places disappearing around me, because I learned that people disappeared (got killed) too, so it became my bigger goal to stay alive. If things get to this point, prepare to be in free fall with everything (and everyone) around you changing and turning ugly.

    11:55 Guy with the bad dreams did see only small part of his bad dreams. He is under the pressure, doing some hard job and his every moment is filled with tension. Later, years later bad dreams gonna haunt him, when he goes back to “normal life”. Actually he is gonna figure that there is no normal life for him anymore. Sorry man, world becomes different place.

    12:24 City moving during the fighting is some other moving then you use to. It means that you need to “draw” some other map. Move through the ruined buildings, holes in walls etc. Moving trough the normal ways is usually way to dangerous.

    13:48 ”We have enough shown to the people. Do something .” I have been there, only this dude has opportunity to say this to someones camera. I was asking myself for days “is it possible that no one is seeing that people are getting killed, children are dying, and that people are starving.” Later I figured that mostly people do not care for that, because of many reasons, and I figured too that there are no sides, only people suffering, dying,fighting, surviving… I talk more about this after comments here.

    16:56 Guy throwing the “home made” bomb, usually made from the unexploded stuff, while his buddy is taking cover few meter behind opening without revealing himself. Basics of urban street combat. Shooting is done from small openings or with just your hands raising (with rifle) above some cover and spraying. Progress is made when civilians learn to fight. They speak about how warfare changed from spraying and random shooting to snipers and IED’s in this video.

    19:41 Does this guy look like he knows what he is doing? No, he is not so familiar with the weapon. SHTF also means lot of guys with weapons, and many of them do not know how to use them too, some of them seeing it for a first time probably. And shooting does not mean that you’re gonna hit something always, there is also other reasons for shooting, so it is good idea to have huge amount of ammunition. When you go out with group for first couple of times… stay away from them. Friendly fire is real and I saw people get taken down by friends and family or shooting themselves.

    26:41 That is the picture how most of the cities gonna look when SHTF, it shows some of the streets, and you can say that it is war there, and it is not gonna look like that in “my SHTF case”. But still you need to consider that in any disaster and survival scenario for whatever reason, with time and lack of the city services, violence and ruins because of fight for resources, it is pretty much similar. Consider this when you are taking some advice and plans for moving through the city during survival scenario. “Smart” advice like “usage of skateboard for moving trough the SHTF city” just does not make sense.

    I feel like I describe something that can not be described, but the video helps one to imagine. Imagine how things can go bad and grim and then add more to it.

    Another survival lesson that can be learned

    Do you see how long this conflict in Syria going on? People are getting killed, dying, starving, no proper medical care, no common services etc. Does that look somehow irregular to you in some way?

    I hope not. Look at the situation in Syria and yes there is some help coming from other countries but many people survive. That you are lone survivor 3 months after SHTF is another myth in the “survival scene”.

    People will die in huge numbers, but also it will be crowded with lots of bloody fights for resources. People have ability to adapt, so we all can eat food with worms, learn how to shoot and kill, live without showers etc. People will die yes, in many ways, but not as fast and not as easy as many may imagine.

    It is gonna be fight for survival and everyone is invited.

    Who will go first?

    Not necessarily the weakest ones in terms of strength. Expect to see the first casualties among the people who are the most dependent on society and have very poor ability to adapt.

    So while a 70 year-old man surely looks like guy who is gonna die among the first ones, when you compare him to the young athletic looking teacher (or whatever), in reality that old guy might be able to adapt faster, because he comes from poor background and grew up in sort of the same survival scenario. That athletic looking dude may be lost because his strong faith in society and good human nature.

    International intervention or not?

    Personally I do not know enough about the situation on ground and the media reports are very different, so I can not say if helping rebels is good or not. If you are there and see this and experience it you want to help them, you can be sure about that. If you only see this from the distance it is different. Best thing really would be if everyone goes home, stops fighting and Assad leaves.

    Not gonna happen.

    Maybe now is not the time for US or international troops to get involved in this, but leaving mad dictators like Assad kill people? I think this is a situation where every way is wrong. Now it is just about finding which is not too wrong. No need for world war 3, no need for atrocities on civilians.

    This is what I have to say about this. Share your thoughts and opinions on scenes in video and situation in Syria in comments.

    You can follow Selco’s story at SHTF School and learn how he survived one year in hell.

      • Be informed says:

        Not to say this over and over again, but major cities are death traps for this reason, but also because they harbor disease. Germs will kill people faster than almost anything. You can fight the bad guys and get pretty good at it. Bacteria and viruses are something that you can’t fight, you can control it to a degree, but fighting germs is something entirely different than someone coming at you. Germs are stealthy and appear when you least expect it. Best course of action is to first, forget about urban warfare and get out of the city if you can as quickly as possible.

        Small time America is just different, you could apply some of this really good advice above, but it just is not the city. Neighbors for one thing are very likely not going to be competing for the scarce resources that a city will become. People in small places are much less blood thirsty. Cities are coffin enclaves that cannot self support themselves, and these above scenarioes will play out in city after city as 10000-100000 people per square mile fight over the scraps left over when the city loses its lifeline. Towns are usually spread out and have food in the countryside. The sad answer is DON’T get caught dead in a big city when this happens.

                Sorry, O/T again, as usual. I am prepping as hard and fast as I can, and there is so much to learn! I am trying to put together a small solar power system. I think I have the basics figured out. Any suggestions for where to get the supplies? I have garnered a wealth of info from this site, and will never be able to repay all I have learned, but I do appreciate all the sharing. Thanks all!

                  Harbor Freight is a popular place to get 45 watt units because they often have coupons in the back of Reader’s Digest and other magazines that bring the price down to around $145 and that includes a crappy charge controller and a couple LED lamps. Nevertheless, you can get a better price per watt on Amazon.com.

                  Ebay is a good place to get a good but cheap charge controller.

                  Sam’s Club is a good place to get 6 volt golf cart batteries because there is not shipping cost and they get really good reviews from the around-the-world sailors who use them in their own 12 volt electrical systems.

                  I got my 12 volt water pump from adventurerv.net. It has a built in pressure switch so only kicks on when you turn the faucet. It pumps water from a plastic tank I got from tank-depot.com.

                  Go to Youtube and search for the SolarCabin channel ran by a guy named Lamar. He has a great video on his small 12 volt solar system like I described above.

                  Harbor Freight is very over priced for solar. I speak from the experience of living full time on solar power, no grid power.

                  This web site tracks the price of solar panels. Right now you can get a 250 watt solar panels for $0.78 a watt. I paid $5.00 a watt for my original panels. Buy solar now while the market is flooded with inexpensive panels.

                  Thanks PP! I have looked heavily at that kit on harbor freight, it is only $159.99 right now without discounts. Not too shabby of a deal.

                  From my own research here is what I have come up with:

                  One of these:

                  $337 total + free shipping.

                  I am a newbie and this will be my first set-up. I really don’t know what I am doing. Does it look like it will work all together? And seem like a decent start, with room to expand?

                  I am just trying to power a few things for only a couple of hours at a time. Maybe a laptop with references stored on it, a AA/AAA battery charger, a light here and there and a few small appliances occasionally.

                  Thanks for all input!

                  Thanks for input RL, Shootit and PP!
                  A couple more, probably dumb questions. How important is it to use the cabling and MC4 connectors they sell? Could I not just use jumper cables with clamps cut-off and cut to length I need?
                  Also is it typical to mount the control charger near the panel? or near the battery? I am attempting to make a somewhat portable system. After I get it set up and tested, the parts will go into a Faraday cage, does the panel itself also need to be protected from emp? Sorry for bringing so many questions here. I have searched as much as time will allow me, but I have yet to find a source for good, simple, generic info on this subject. If you know of one I’d love to check it out.
                  Thanks again!

                  Red Leader, That sounded too good to be true and when I clicked on the link I found out that it was. Not only do they charge for shippping, they refuse to disclose how much online and it appears their panels require proprietary connectors that are also not included in the price.

                  As I said previously Harbor Freight is popular, but not necessarily the cheapest per watt. Let’s compare apples to apples though. What can this company deliver to my home complete with connectors, a charge controller, and lights for under $160?

                  Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 5 Thumb down 3

                • Shootit says:

                  MC4 connectors make it easy for multiple panel systems. No you do not need to use them. The closer your panel/controller/inverter/battery are to each other the smaller the wire you can use. Distance from Battery to Inverter should be as short as possible.

                  You’d probably be better off with a full sine wave inverter instead of the modified sine wave inverters. They cost a little more, but the output is very close to what the power company sells us.

                  If you are starting out in solar and have little to no experience with high current electronics, I recommend the HF 45 watt solar kit. Yes, it is not the best solar system out there, considering the price per watt, it stinks. (Although there are coupons to be had for $139.99 near Black Friday, Labor Day and some other random sales events). What it DOES provide is a Low Voltage, easy to use, complete system that includes the charge controller with multi-voltage output regulator in the kit.

                  Here are the Pros:
                  1. Generates around 17 volts open circuit – less likely to hurt or kill you, so this solar system offers a degree of safety over Higher voltage arrays, such as grid-tied solar systems which can be as high as 360 volts for residential applications.

                  2. Amorphous panels are more forgiving about operating in partial shade areas, and typically generate more voltage per square cm than poly or mono crystalline panels, but do not produce as much current.

                  3. The charge controller that comes with the kit is easy enough to hook up that an average 10-12 year old who plays with free-building toys like Legos will be able to deploy it after only being shown once or twice how.

                  4. because the panels are smaller than “standard” size, they are easy to store, transport and deploy by one person, even in fairly windy conditions. (I store mine in 2 hard polyethylene rifle cases with blankets between them for protection from scratches and breaking.

                  Some Cons:
                  1. Expensive per watt – more expensive than Amorphous panels should be!

                  2. Do not last long in the elements – about 7-8 years is all these lasted for me, and that was the old aluminum rimmed panels sold prior to August 2011.

                  3. The charge controller is not the most efficient design, and will not handle more than 100 watts max (Or 6x 15 watt panels in parallel)

                  4. Do not leave panels in winds above 25-30 MPH, the frame must be Ballasted with sand bags, concrete mounting blocks or at the very least staked down and tied down. These panels are not very well suited for high wind areas, and lack the interchangeable mounting system the larger “Home Solar” modules have.

                  The system I started out with to prove my concept was 2x Harbor Freight 45 watt kits, wired to one of the supplied controllers mounted inside a 28in Stanley fat Max Weather seal box with 2x 12V/35AH sealed Lead-Acid batteries wired in parallel for after-dark use and a 12V to 120V 750W cont./1500W max power inverter mounted next to the controller inside the toolbox. All but the toolbox bought from HF.

                  If you intend on using the power from this to run stuff at night or in heavily overcast days, a 12 volt car battery or 2 (Like 2 of the same size battery from a wrecking yard) is a great beginning system to get comfortable with before moving to more expensive, (And Heavy) golf cart batteries, and several hundred watts or more worth of panels in a permanently mounted array. Check the acid level often, and do not discharge regular car batteries more than 20% capacity, as they have very thin plates that erode quickly if subjected to Over-Discharge. This system is easily transported, cheaper than buying the larger, more complex systems, and fairly robust to tinker with, but for the best bang for buck, recommend 100watt solar modules from Panasonic or Siemens. They typically have 24-28 volt open circuit voltage, (36 cells per module) run 3-5 amps per panel, and can be had for 190-250 bucks for each module bought from vendors like Amazon.

                  If you cut the Mc4 connectors off you will void the warranty! Mc4 connectors are cheap on ebay and easy to install, do it right man! I have 15 years experience in solar and did it professionally for a living. I am certified, trained, experienced in both on and off grid so I know what Im talking about. Also NEVER buy trojan batteries they are absolute SHIT! A good battery for the money is U.S. Battery, try the us2200 golf cart 6 volt for a starter system. I had my last set last 7 years! Ebay has cheap panels, do not get the harbor frieght garbage, get poly or monocrystalline. Also Magnasine inverters are shit too, of the 4 people that have them near me 3 have gone bad and one of those 3 went bad 3 freaking times! You will not see reviews on a dealers site because problems are directed to the manufacturer and the dealer has no clue how shitty some products are. I don’t know your budget but get the best you can afford you won’t regret it!

                Outlaw, I love the MC4 connectors! They and the wire are rated for outdoors and waterproof as they have O rings. They are truely plug and play. There are bulkhead MC4 connectors to go into your combiner box. My first set of solar panels I used flexible conduit. What a pain! If you leave regular wires exposed, the rats and other critters will chew them.

                As far as EMP effect on solar panels, I have read that the blocking diode in the panels will fry. The blocking diode prevents power from draining back from the batteries through the panels at night. If hit with EMP you could jump the diode with a wire and switch off the panels at night or store extra diodes.

                The charge controller should be mounted near the battery bank. The mimimum size battery I would use is the L-16 size. You should get 8 years out of them. The T-105 golf cart batteites will get half that life.

                Since we live full time with solar and wind, we bought 12, 2 volt 2450 amp Rolls batteries that have a 20 year plus life.

                For freezers we have two 8 Cubic foot Sun Danzer freezers. At 70 degrees outside temp, the freezer only uses 400 watts a day which means that one, 100 watt panel would power one.

                We have two Outback MX 80 charge controllers and 5,500 watts of solar. It is a large system but that is what makes the batteries last a long time. My wife was good to go on living off the grid as long as she could use her hair dryer after the crash(-:

                Lastly we have two, Trace 4,000 watt sine wave inverters hooked together that sends 220 volts over to the house where it splits off to 110 volts. I sized the wire big enought that if one inverter failed, I could send 110 volts to the house with one inverter.

                PP, the link I gave is for buying serious solar panels, over 200 watts. A 45 watt panel won’t do much and will cost well over twice the price per watt as a larger panels. Check out all the different sellers on the link. There may be one near you where you could pick up your panels and save on shipping.

                Lastly, do not buy Chinese panels sold by a Chinese solar company. They will fail. It is OK to buy panels that are made in China for an American or European company. We purchased some 295 watt Canadian Solar panels made in China to Canadian Specs with Canadian guarantee. They are fine. We recently purchased four 305 watt Helios solar panels and they are my favorite. They are made in America by Americans with the most advanced robotics in the world. Best Guarantee too.

                  Good quality, high efficiency , longer life ,dependable panels only. What would you purchase?

                  Right now, not interested in the batteries…would like to get the Lithium Iron Phosphate kind if the price comes down, nor inverters etc.

                  Just storing the panels and maybe the connectors/diodes.

Also try http://www.pvdepot.com I see pallets of new poly panels on craigslist here for .58 cents a watt! or http://www.sun-elec.com Solar panels will be gold in the future in a shtf scenario. Keep in mind 12 volt panels cost a lot more than 24 volt but you can use with a 12 volt battery bank if you use a step down mppt charge controller. Midnite solar and outback make great controllers.

                Could you abide that Wolf?

                If you ran the “Government” Wolf, could/would you leave me to live my life without dictating to me how I should live my life?

                I suspect not. Why? … Because you’re a Statist, and Statists love government. People like you are craven, and relish the opportunity to rule over others. You won’t do it yourself, and you wouldn’t think of coming to my house with a gun to tell me what to do, but you’ll VOTE for those who will! And that’s what makes you sick!

                Two kinds of people Wolf… Those who want to be left alone, and people like you who won’t leave those alone!

                You can’t see it… yet, but decentralization (Anarchy) is the solution to the madness of “The State.”

                  YMWW, in your comment #2196588 you finally mentioned something where we have some common ground. That quote you gave has been the exact nature of governments around the world ever since the Roman Empire. The only exception was the very limited government we started out with in the American Revolution. In the 1850s, it was seized by a new group of statists called the Republican Party, then the Civil War took place, and afterward was when things started getting out of hand. This government has had no legitimate basis for any of its actions since the 1850s. The only hope I see for us is take it all down and start over from scratch. Unlimited corruption, taxation, regulation, etc. have brought us to where we are today. The neocons and libturds have ruined this once great land and we need to restore it. braveheart

                  Hey Wolf, do you know what anarchy really means? Do you know what freedom is? Let me help you… anarchy simply means the lack of rulers or masters. It does NOT mean chaos! Anarchy is the equivilent of freedom. The problem is that a country that has no morals cannot ever be free. The degree of a countries moralism is directly equivelent to how free that country is. As far as the constitution goes it does not legally apply to you because you have signed on to be a U.S. citizen under the U.S. corporation. Constitutional law or common law is completely different from corporate or maritime law. virtually all people in the U.S. are corporate citizens by contract ( drivers license, ssn, birth cert., voter registration, etc.). Learn the difference between legal and lawful. Statutory law is corporate law. The problem is if you assert your rights and get out of theyre system they will make your life miserable as it is extremely hard to live outside the system. When people can be responsible and moral then we can have freedom. When you stand back and see how degraded and disgusting this country has become, I don’t see freedom any time in the future. The psycopathic rulers behind the curtains are calling the shots and the dumbed down ignorant sheep are clueless and obedient. No politician can enforce any BS law, only the consent of the enforcers (military, police) make it so. May your chains rest lightly upon you.

                  We live in the most free society that has ever graced the earth. Our constitutional
                  republic has been lead astray. There is no doubt about that. I could go in detail till no end on my disgust for liberal big gov progressivism but even with that stain on america, america has still given more to the world than any other civilization and that is a fact and is due to our FREE society.

                  Since the founding of america some of the greatest achievements In human history have occurred. Is that coincidence? I think not.

                  The framers of our constitution enabled the individual while limiting the state. Something which had never been truly experienced with in government.

                  Can man govern himself or does man need to be dictated to?

                  Well since our founders left us a constitutional republic there has been massive strides in technology that enabled the meteoric rise in standards of living Which has lead to a massive population boom the world has never seen before.

                  The combination of free enterprise and a constitutional republican form of government have fostered and nurtured expotential gains in medicine, energy, communications and machinery to allow the once poor to pull themselves out of poverty (if they so desire) and make a better living for themselves and family. Tell me another system where an individual can empower themselves and change their status in society??

                  Has any other culture contributed any more than american culture to the progress of humanity as a whole?

                  Since americas inception the world has witnessed the steam engine, electricity, vaccines, flight, visiting the moon, the internet, automobiles, abundant food supplies, etc..

                  One cannot help but see the correlation btw these achievements and the freedom of the american way of life. To not see is ignorance or idiocy.

                  Can you tell me of all the other wonderous cultures and countries who have contributed more to the world?

                  Has china, russia or the tribal peoples of africa given humanity anything?

                  The answer is of course not.

              I have known people from the EU and the most common statement they make is, this country is so vast.
              All the time there are comparisons made between this US and other countries like say Bosnia.
              It’s difficult to see the differences sometime. Hopefully I can make it a little easier.
              United States.. Population. 316,603,479
              Area…3,541,479 square miles
              That’s 89people per square mile

              Los Angeles ca.. Population…18,081,569
              Area… 33,954 square miles
              That’s… 532 people per square mile

              Bosnia… Population. 3,839,737
              Area…19,741 square miles
              That’s… 194 people per square mile

              West Virginia… Population…1,855,413
              Area…24,229 square miles
              That’s 76 people per square mile

              Basically, the entire country of Bosnia, is smaller than the city of Los Angeles.
              Smaller than the state of West Virginia.
              To conduct an operation in this country on the scale of the one that was conducted in Sarajevo, would be an impossibility.
              Those Bosnians were in a box and hoping to stay there. That looks like what the slaughter was. Staying in the city.
              I have yet to read a set of stats on how possible it would be to run an operation that big in the US.
              This I think is what pure evil would attempt to do in this senecio.
              Produce a hyper mutated avian or swine flu virus. It will have a high mortality rate because we haven’t been exposed and haven’t built any immunities to it. Like the Spanish flu that wiped out millions. Secretly apply it in a high density population and let it do its work.
              The down side to this lovely bug will be indiscriminate, it will kill all those that it infects, including but not limited to our politicians, leaders of all kinds world wide. All without pulling not one trigger.
              I have little doubt that evil on this magnitude exists in this world.
              According to Agenda 21, it wants to clear all rural and outlining suburbs and crowd the population into the cities, Hummm I wonder why?
              A year in a place like Sarajevo must have been an unimaginableI hell, I couldn’t even fathom the thought.
              To run an operation like that, here in the entire US with that level of violence unopposed is impossible. The math just won’t work.

                Hammerun: Imposible in USA? well one good example of “How” they could do so in usa.

                In 1917-18 Russia: Total Land Mass was Three times the size of usa and total population was aprox, 150 Million.

                Yet only slightly more than 2% of russias total population, were able to storm russia with a bloddy revolution. That 2 % were the Leaders and main Organizers. They got the Union workers and peasants to unite based on class warfare etc.

                Within aprox 5 yrs time russia went from being russia, a Christian mainly white nation, to what became to be called the “Soveit USSR”.

                It actually took Three trys, three seperate times, 1899-1905-then in 1918,for that aprox 2% or “slightly” more than 2% jewish leadership/organizers, with assistance from workers and peasants groups, to be able to not just create the Soviet Communist ussr, but to also be the Direct cause of the worlds worst ever Bloodbath in all recorded history. Total deaths by the jewish bolshevik leaders and thier underlings, added up to over 150 to perhaps as high as over 200 Million dead. When you include the Other 15 or so smaller eastern european countries the kommie bolsheviks overtook. And they did so as fast as Lightning flashes across the night sky.

                Small town after village after city and it kept going untill almost 1/2 of the orig folks were dead.

                So if one considers back in 1918, they were no wheres as sophisticated as todays usa govnt, which ironicly, is also now run by the very same folks. Or should I say, the decendants today of That 1918 era of russian jewish bolshevik kommies, are running america today.

                And while usa folks are probobly better armed today, back in russia and those other smaller nations they too had arms of many types. Handguns-Rifles-Shotguns and likly had WWI type Military rifles since WWI was going on all around those nations at same time frame.

                USA is 1/3rd size of russia with twice as many people today. Yet many situations are very similar. Especially the same folks,same 2% that ran russia, that run and control litterally every facet of, society-culture-finances/banks-MSM in All/Every format-US Fed govnt and every ABC-agency within fed govnt-much of State govnt-with litterally Every large-most medium-cities run and controlled By their highly trained pals and accomplices heading every such city-govnt today.(BRA-black run american inner citys etc and also kommie trained).

                And if one compares russias union workers komies and peasants folk, to todays usa ghetto blacks, avg 95+% lib dem Kommie, with also union workers mainly dem lib kommie trained too.

                It sounds like an Exact same recipe for the exact same bolshevik led kommie overthrow in america as occured in russia 1918. And with twice as many people in usa dwelling in 1/3rd the land mass as russia had, that alone may be an advantage for the evil kommies that evens odds better for Them, when you account for we have more weapons in hands of citizenery, but thats about our only good point. There are definatly way more similarities with todays usa to 1918 russia than there are differences.

                So basically I do not see such impossible odds as you seem to.

                  @Them Guys;
                  Thanks for the history lesson. I’ll be the first to admit I know very little of Russia in that period. My interest started from 1928 forward, Hitlers early days. In about 1967, I read an unmolested version of Mein Kampf cover to cover. While most people will find the read appalling, I found its insight into,the inner methods and workings of just how someone like Hitler in his youth and his rise to power. Also insight as to the climate that must be in place for a dictator like Hitler to be risen into power.
                  I wholeheartedly agree with you that the conditions exist today, ripe for the identically same type of dictator to rise out of the murk. Hitler speaks of actively recruiting tradesmen and union workers with families. He didn’t have much to do with minorities, he came to a habit/policy of once they had served their purpose, to have them disposed of.
                  A couple of years ago I read an article by Igor Panarin, describing in the article in part how underlings would be first used as backers and promoters of the agenda (thinking they would be in the inner circle with all of the perks if they did so) would be utilized to the fullest and then be summarily executed or disposed of in some manner. Stating, this is how a brutal takeover regime works.
                  I think all agree that sees, blacks, whites, Hispanics, the uneducated, the unemployed, the weak, the lazy, anybody that is on the dole, is subject to utilization and abuses by the current administration. Bought and paid for, classic Clowered and Piven. They have a big hook in their backs and they have them deep.
                  Whether what we are discussing is possible or not, the bottom line here is none of it, not so much as a scintilla of it is going to be pleasant if anything like the past comes to pass. I hope we can learn from the past, as in Russia’s, Germany’s, Cambodia, Uganda, shit how on long can I make this list.
                  I don’t know but I’ll bet there have been scenarios theorized as how to control the US population. Ether by passification or force. I’ll stand by my analysis, as uniformed as it is about a viral attack. It’s simplistic, effective, and an absolutely predictable outcome.
                  I believe the crude and despicable fact is, in the end if it gets that far, there will be a willingness on the part of the PTB and those that we cant see behind them to finalize a solution for a quantity, a large quantity of population disposition.
                  This to the perpetrators will be a reset button. Freeing up massive assets, both public and private, and relieving them of massive entitlements and unfunded liabilities.
                  Me personally, I want to get right with God and when it happens, look it in the face and know the other side is there.

                  Hammerun: Great reply. I also agree that some form bio disease etc is very likly a scenario as it today would work way better and faster and also easier on the part of tptb sides to do so.

                  I think just maybe some of all these vacines just may be part-A, of a Two part bio weapon. Then once enough folks are injected with that part-a which on its own is harmless, but if they also have a Part-B, waiting in the wings to be employed, perhaps Sprayed overhead like Chem-Trails, it could very well be the final solution plan.

                  And if such was done, not one in each million folks would be wise to how it was acomplished.

                  We know not as yet what their exact final plans are other than They Hate Us and wish badly to exterminate us.

                  There is a verse in their Talmud books, that basically says “Kill even the BEST of the Gentile Goyim”

                  I am only guessing here, but from all else I have learned of how those folks think and what they believe concernibg Them vs Us “gentiles goyim” I am fairly confident that what is really meant by “Best of gentile Goyims” very likly means…White Folk.

                  My main reason to think it means white folks, is that Many other verses of talmud speaks of the races of peoples and the many differences etc. Their beliefs center around, They are at the Top of Race and all society etc. And their talmud verses teach that the African black race is at the Lowest rung and that they are meere animal/humans that God made able to Speak in languages so to better serve talmudic jewish folks as their Slaves.

                  They think that way of ALL gentiles races. But they really think ill and lowly of african blacks especially.

                  So to me logic dictates that if african blacks is who They consider the lowest race, and after learning from Past history, as well as my life of seeing events unfold for 60 yrs now, I assume the main reason it seems Whites are so under attack by so many “death bt thousand cuts” methods, is because it is White folks that are who’s spoken of in that verse “Kill even the Best of the gentile Goyim”

                  However I also think no matter how swell they did in screwing Other nations like Russia and european nations in the past, that just maybe This time around those of the evil persuasions and lusting for power over All others etc, have perhaps Miscalculated a bit when chooseing Americans as their Next Target rich nation.

                  America just may go down in history as the Nation where The Bolshevik Kommies have bitten off way more than even They can, jew. Time shall tell…Tic Toc

                This may Answer why America is so Great, and So Blessed!

                The Orig. Promices God made to Abraham, called the “Abrahamic Covenant” of wealth,Lands, Resources, Great Militaries etc etc etc. Were Three times in the bible spoken of to have been Postponed as a Punishment to the tribes of israel. Each punishment time frame God Added longer numbers of Years they must Wait to finally recieve those Blessings. The last final time frame God witheld all the promiced Abrahamic-Blessings, Lasted for 2520-yrs!….Read the info below decide for yourselves Why America has been So Blessed By God. Because That is the Main reason we were and still Are all what Wolf 395 has so well defined in His Post. It’s All due to God’s Promiced Blessings first promiced to Abraham!

                Going back to God’s warning of the seven times punishment to be meted out to Israel if she persisted inthe sinful ways, it is logical to assume that the starting date of that punishment period would start fromthe date of the removal of Israel from her homeland in Palestine.A study of the dates when the various tribes were taken into captivity will show that they were not alltaken captive at one time. In fact, many years difference was recorded between their captivities. Thus,the punishment period of 2520 years would start and end at different times depending on the tribe of Israel. Now by adding 2520 years to the starting date of each of the tribes of Israel going into captivity,where such dates are available, one can establish the ending date of the punishment period. Not all theexact starting dates can be ascertained. However, in the cases where dates can be determined, we find

                that by adding 2520 years to the starting date of a tribe’s captivity, one comes to the date of the founding
                of an independent nation or kingdom.

                The first Israel tribe to be conquered by the Assyrians was Manasseh, in 745 B.C. Exactly 2520 yearslater America became a nation on July 4. 1776. In the case of Ephraim we start with 721 B.C. whenSamaria, the capital of the northern Kingdom of Israel, fell to the Assyrians. Exactly 2520 years fromthat date. Great Britain became a Commonwealth (Jan. 1, 1881). The last tribe to go into captivity wasBenjamin. Remember Benjamin was “lent as a light unto Judah”. so that they would be light bearersbefore Judah for all times. And, as their captivity started later than any of the other tribes, we would expect it to end last,which has proved to be the case.

                The great Scottish Pyramidologist and Bible Chronologist. Dr. Adam Rutherford. F.R. G. S. told theIcelandic nation many years ago that on a certain day and certain year they would become anindependent nation. They laughed at him and said it would be impossible since they were
                under thecontrol of Denmark. Exactly 2520 years from the exile of Benjamin. Iceland became an independentnation. When invited by the Icelandic Parliament to
                address them after their independence. Dr.Rutherford reminded them of his prediction, and many members of the Parliament acknowledged they were of Benjamin.

                It is difficult to determine with certainty which Anglo-Saxon – Scandinavian – Lombard – Germanic -Celtic nation of today is basically from which particular Israel tribe. There has been much interminglingamong the tribes in their westward migrations. In God’s plan of the ages they progressively became”many nations” in Europe and a “company of nations” (the Commonwealth of Great Britain) withcolonies and daughter nations. Today, certain European and Scandinavian nations appear to possesscertain characteristics of the individual tribes of Israel which may well indicate the people of thosenations are predominately of that particular tribe (i.e., Denmark – Dan; Holland – Zebulun; Germany (in part)
                – Judah). Great Britain, although it can be identified with Ephraim. has a large infusion of Judah aswell as other tribes.

                America, possessing the “birthright marks” of Joseph, can only be identified asmodern Manassah (the thirteenth tribe). However, it is today, peopled by a gathering of all the othertribes of Israel. This is in fulfillment of the prophesy of Jeremiah. “In those days the house of Judah(tribes of the southern Kingdom) shall walk with the house of Israel (tribes of the northern Kingdom),and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance (appointed land II Sam.7:10)unto your fathers (Jer.3:18)

                Ezekiel also prophesies the joining of Judah and Israel into one nation, “thus saith the Lord God:Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel hisfellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and theyshall be one in mine hand… Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whitherthey be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: And I will makethem one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king (head) shall be king to them all:and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:”
                (Ezek. 37:19-22).

                  Part II, Continues…

                  Josephus records that the portion of the nation of Judah carried into Babylon captivity by King Nebuchadnezzar was a million and a half (Neh. Chapter 7). Seventy years later, when Judah was allowed to return to their homeland, although still in subject, only some forty -two thousand (Neh. 7:66)went back into Jerusalem, rebuilt the temple and set up the nation, later to be called the nation of the Jews. While in Babylon, many of the forty-two thousand intermarried with Babylonians, adopted the
                  Babylonian financial, political and ecclesiastical systems.

                  Josephus further reports that many non-Israelites joined themselves to the returning Judahites. Later,Christ identified these people, also called Jews, as not of Galilee, (John 7: 1 – 13) not of Abraham or of God,(John 8:39-47)and Not His sheep (John 10:26-30).

                  These Jews themselves testified to not being
                  a part of Israel by their answer to Christ’s words, “the truth shall make you free,” that they “were never in bondage to any man” (John 8: 33). All bible students know every tribe of Israel was in bondage in Egypt(Deut.5:6).

                  It was this mixed remnant of Judah, upon returning from the Babylon captivity in the time of Ezra and Nehemiah, that became known as the nation of the Jews; a name not applied to Judah prior to the
                  Babylonian captivity. Included in this nation were the Edomites (known to the Greeks as Idumeans) who
                  had occupied Jerusalem during the captivity period. King Herod the Great was an example of this as he was of Idumean (Edom) origin and thus not an Israelite. King Herod filled the ranks of the Sadducees with his own kind.
                  This explains why the Sadducees did not believe in resurrection and said there was no angel, nor Spirit (Acts 23: 8).

                  By the time of Christ, continued mixing with Amorites, Philistines. Canaanites. Babylonians and Hittites
                  resulted in a racially mixed nation.
                  From the Hittite infusion came the so-called ‘Jewish nose”(Hammonds World Atlas 1954 – page 266). Modern Jewry includes a further in-mixing with Mongol-Turkish people
                  (Khazar kingdom of Russia) who adopted Judaism during the
                  8th and 9th centuries A.D.

                  It is evident that among these mixed people in Israel at the time of Christ were literal descendants of Cain, for
                  Christ said of these “Jews”: “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.
                  He was murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?
                  He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear
                  them not, because ye are not of God” (John 8: 44-47).

                  “But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My father which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my father’s hand. I and my Father are one”(John 10:26-30).

                  John, recording God’s word in Revelation, writes, “and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, (of Judah) and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.” (Rev. 2: 9) and “Behold I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, (of Judah) and are not, but do lie; Behold. I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee” (Rev.3:9)

                  Christ clearly shows the separation of the people of Palestine into two classes in His answer to the question as to why He spoke in parables. “Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the
                  kingdom of heaven but to them it is not given” (Matt. 13: 11).

                  There are many so-called Jews today that are not descended from Abraham, that claim to be God’s people “Israel”, because some of them are of Judah. However, being of Judah does not necessarily mean
                  they are still His people, for some of Judah were cut off from the promises to Israel. In Jeremiah we find
                  God showing the prophet how He separated the bad figs (mixed seed) from the good figs of Judah who were to be Christian people for only of them could God say, “I will give them a heart; to know me that I am the Lord: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart” (Jer. 24: 7).

                  Of the bad figs God says. “And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt, and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them.”
                  (Jer. 24: 9)

                  Thus we find the word “Jew” being applied to more than one kind of people. This has caused confusion in our understanding of the Scriptures dealing with the Jew.To add to this confusion the translators of Scripture often mistranslated the word Jew from such words as “loudaios” (meaning from, or being of: as a country, Judean) and “loudaismos” (meaning Judaism, as accepting the Jewish faith and usages). Scripture refers to those that “became Jews for fear of the Jews”(Esther 8:17), and even Paul said “And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews” (I Cor. 9:20).

                  As it is important to understand that in Scriptures, the terms “Israel”, “Judah” and “Jew” are not synonymous, it is equally important to understand that the House of Israel is not synonymous with the House of Judah. The course of history is widely divergent for the peoples properly classified under each of these titles.

                  When God speaks in prophecy to the House of Israel or the House of Judah, He does not refer to the modern “Jewish” nation of Israel.

                  It is clearly shown that the House of Israel is separate from the House of Judah in the prophecy regarding the future names of each. Of the Jews (mixed Judah) it was prophecies “And ye shall leave(retain) your name (Israel) for a curse unto my chosen for the Lord God shall slay thee and call his servants by another name” (Isaiah 65: 15).

                  This has been fulfilled: The Jews have retained the name “Israel” for “a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse” (Jer. 24: 9). while true Israel is no longer called by its old name. In fact Israel is blind to their identity. Paul wrote, “blindness in part is happened to Israel” and Isaiah wrote God’s word, “Who is blind, but my servant” (Isa. 42: 19) and “and thou shall be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name” (Isaiah 62:2)

                  God explains what that name is, “If my people, which are called by my name shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face,and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin. And will heal their land” (II Chron. 7:14).

                  His people are today called Christians; the nations of Israel are known as Christian Nations.

Ancient Israelites traveled, and Which Nations of eastern europe and weatern europe, and finally to England-Ireland-Scotland-And America where they finally ended up.

                  You will really have a great understanding on it all, and Why those today called “Jewish Peoples” are Mostly Not.

                  Do yourself a Favor, Read the entire 27 pages, view the Many Maps and travel Routes taken. Then You will Know the real Biblical Truths of who and where is TRUE Israel Today! Hint..Its NOT in that Rabid mid east state called israel, filled with mostly Khazars etc today!

                Read up on the death rates the last time the banksters had a “spring clean”. The numbers of US deaths (especially those of children) during the last depression is shocking. Once you dig past the “official statistics” you’ll be horrified. I was.

                The key difference between the official Soviet population figures & those of the West in the 1920′s & 30′s, was that the Soviets were honest about how many lives were snuffed out.

                There are more ways to kill than urban warfare. In Detroit, Chicago, parts of Greece etc, times are already begin to test the soul. The US already has tent cities, in the UK the number of sofa surfers (hidden homeless families, staying with family and friends until their hosts get fed up) and food banks rise every day.

                In the US last time round they chose hunger & poverty instead of the bullet. Many from the cities and the agricultural “dustbowl” alike died of starvation. Lack of access to medical care for easily treated ailments wiped out many more, especially the young and the vulnerable.

                The stories of the Argentine farmers should be studied by those rural dwellers who assume that they are safe. During the currency collapse there, some true atrocities were committed by roving gangs upon rural families. Things got so bad, that many, desperate not to expose their children to the potential depravities practiced upon farmers fled to the cities for security.

                Gubberments under duress can simply raise the property taxes on land to such a point that families are driven off the land they have farmed for generations. Even that remote haven can be vulnerable to this tool of the banksters.

                Perfectly decent, God fearing mothers can turn into monsters if their children are starving before their eyes. I’d be lying if I said I myself could not resort to theft or even prostitution if I felt it was my only hope of preserving the life of my child.

                No one knows their own limits until they are truly tested. For me, this is a major reason for both prepping & praying in these uncertain times. Know that where ever you are though, al l you are doing is lowering the odds, not eliminating them entirely as the elite are truly Satans minions, come to test us all.

                Complacency is the biggest danger of all.

                In the US last time round they chose hunger & poverty instead of the bullet. Many from the cities and the agricultural “dustbowl” alike died of starvation. Lack of access to medical care for easily treated ailments wiped out many more, especially the young and the vulnerable.

                The stories of the Argentine farmers should be studied by those rural dwellers who assume that they are safe. During the currency collapse there, some true atrocities were committed by roving gangs upon rural families. Things got so bad, that many, desperate not to expose their children to the potential depravities practiced upon farmers fled to the cities for security.

                Gubberments under duress can simply raise the property taxes on land to such a point that families are driven off the land they have farmed for generations. Even that remote haven can be vulnerable to this tool of the banksters.

                Perfectly decent, God fearing mothers can turn into monsters if their children are starving before their eyes. I’d be lying if I said I myself could not resort to theft or even prostitution if I felt it was my only hope of preserving the life of my child.

                No one knows their own limits until they are truly tested. For me, this is a major reason for both prepping & praying in these uncertain times. Know that where ever you are though, al l you are doing is lowering the odds, not eliminating them entirely as the elite are truly Satans minions, come to test us all.

                Complacency is the biggest danger of all.

          What has taken years in the above example will take days in large cities. Without supply lines, there will be panic, fear, hunger, thirst. How long did Katrina take to devolve? Envision that on a vast scale, where there is no evacuation, no party is coming to save you, and seemingly no end to time but death. That is a full scale grid-down scenario and many other scenarios are similar. Cities will collapse in such a scenario; they will fail too quickly to devolve.

          Your best bet is to get out now. Beat the rush and establish somewhere sustainable in advance.

            The “global dice” have been thrown. These “dice” are still airborne, but will land on our collective “crap table” very soon.

            There are literally too many variables in play to call how “those dice” will ultimately land.

            But I will offer this opinion: The overall outcome will “come up craps” on some level. Perhaps a simple, yet undeniable economic hit not seen in this country before.

            Worse case scenario…we are “privileged” (full sarcasm intended) with front row seats to the Greatest Show On Earth so far. Witness to the unthinkable actions of psychopaths, demons, and possibly what some might describe as ET’S…oh my.

            • “privileged” may seem like sarcasm, but in the real world of global war and geopolitics, it is most likely true.

              With the petro dollar reserve currency and the biggest black ops and military in the world there are no credible foes at this time.

              I believe that the international bankers/zionists have made their bed with the corporate government called the District of Columbia and will pull all available hydrocarbons to the core in Israel and DC at the expense of the rest of the world.

              We may despise the “managers” of the banking New World Order but if you live in the USA you will probably be one of the last to die.

                I really liked what you said about these new vehicles, I’m 50 years old and, like the old stuff.

                I remember well the trucks working with 24 volts (two batteries) and a lot of people who would get into beast took shock (even some died from simple ignorance).

                I’m in the garage at home (always thinking of a pulse atomic or solar detonate everything is electronic) this baby here:

                Yamaha Motorcycle 180cc year 1995 (two-stroke engine) always with a full tank in the garage, autonomy at least 200 km running at 7,500 revolutions, 80 Km / h.

                She has “autolube” (a bomb that 2 stroke oil mixture directly after the vaporization of gasoline with carburetor). This oil is a separate reservoir and you only need to check every three times you fill the fuel tank.

                Oh, she does not have electronic ignition is “Platinum”, let the battery (6 volt) always off.

              Red Leader, you are correct in that your ’92 Dodge Cummins is EMP-proof. In the case of an EMP, your speedometer won’t work, and the voltage regulator which charges the trucks battery won’t work either(the voltage regulator is built-in to the vehicles PCM). The good news is you can wire in an external voltage regulator. There are plenty of Dodge Cummins forums to tell you step by step how to do it.

              EMP requires a long antenna style inductor like a power line to develop a dangerous voltage. Items not attached to the grid should be fine. Any steel container should give extra protection just in case. Quit worrying. The rampaging mobs will probably kill you anyway.

            @ braveheart. Keep a lookout for strange animal behavior since you are so close to the New Madrid. That 6 pointer on the Mid Atlantic Ridge area was the largest in 44 years. This is where the push of the North American plate is most affecting towards the New Madrid. When that fault goes, urban hell will be everywhere within 50-100 miles of the fault at least. It may not be the EMP that stops your truck, if New Madrid goes it may be that there are no passable roads and the bridges in the areas will likely be in the rivers.

                @ kimintn. It was on September 4, and everytime there is movement of the North American plate at between 14 and 20 degrees north this is focused right on the New Madrid fault system. Back in 1969 there was a 6.6 here and the New Madrid did not break, but that was 44 years before more strain and stress had built up to present day levels. It has been 118 years since there has been a major earthquake on the New Madrid, Halloween day in 1895. Whether or not the section of the Mid Atlantic Ridge was active back then there is no record of it. No real way of detecting anything in the ocean back then.

                This is a large earthquake and shows the North American plate moved and focused more tension on the New Madrid. There is a significant increase of chance of a decent size earthquake because of this. Nothing is imminent, but close attention to animal behavior is important here because back in 1811-1812, animals did detect those earthquakes coming before they occurred. Being forewarned about an earthquake and not being surprised as much when it happens can be the difference between living and dying.

                I would say a 7 on this region of the Mid Atlantic Ridge and I would say look out it is coming with 75% or more certainty. A 6 is thankfully much less certain, but definitely shows there is an increased risk. Look for anything that has to do with the ground that is bizarre or weird. Insects and snakes are very tuned into anything that would disturb or destroy their habitat, strange reactions of these animals I would pay very close attention to, they know just as they knew back over 200 years ago.

          BI,
          Have you seen the articles about the recent cases of Naegleri fowlerii also known as the brain eating amoeba. It isn’t a likely organism for bioweaponry but it is an interesting organism.

          The amoeba is very common, especially in the southeastern US. Most of the time it is harmless but at certain water temperatures it changes personality and it will invade a person by migrating unnoticed up the nose and into the brain.

          99% of the people infected die. That is because they only start to show symptoms when the infection has taken hold in the brain and by then, it is usually to late for treatment.

          In the last month or so, there are been three cases in children and two of them died. This is interesting because there have been less then 35 cases in the entire last fifteen years. Is it increasing in incidence or is it just that we’re doing better at getting it diagnosed? I have no clue.

          Incidentally, one recent death was from a person who used a Neti pot (nasal lavage) but didn’t use purified water.

            @ Merree. I sure have seen this, and thankfully that little girl survived it. Something is wrong, it could be that nightmare from a bad horror movie has adapted to a higher tolerance of certain waters and pH levels. Could be the climate is changing to more favor this “lifeform” if that is what anyone can call it. Could just be more people are bathing in areas where this is dangerous. Just hope it is not adapting and then will stay alive in the municipal water supplies and start to enter the brain from the throat to nose to brain. That would be horrible beyond words.

            Something is causing it to become a lot more virulent. My guess is the warmer temperatures and possibly that these waters are being polluted with some chemical that is changing the composition of its cell structure. Pollution waters does change things to the ecological system of just about any body of water. I have always wondered about all the pharmaceutical toxins that are getting into the waterways all over the place from human wastes and just the raw medications getting dumped down the toilets by so many people. Bad situation in the SE US with this.

              The climate and water conditions have become more favorable for the proliferation of this amoeba, and people are coming into more frequent contact with this water that is home to more of the species. It likes warmer water, and it likes nutrient-rich (polluted) water best.

              It doesn’t mean to eat human brains. It just eats as it moves along, trying to get back to the water it lived in before it got relocated to the human body.

          Make a list of every single “convience” that you have in every day life. Those are the things that you will have to learn how to do with out or learn how to accomplish on your own.

          @BI is %100 correct on germs/infections. There is a reason why the govt has control over a very simple medicine. Anti-biotics. Learn about alternative medicines because those will still be available because they are natural to nature.

          Always the biggest things are water, food, shelter, and protection.

          Correct BI on the sanitation. Wasn’t a whole lot of cleanliness where that bread was being put together either. Lord knows infection was rampant at that hospital with all the dust in the air from the constant shelling. I do feel sorry the innocent/children. The noise of shells falling, the smell of blood and the grotesque scenes of the mutilated has to take a horrendous toll on a child. The thing though is that this seems to keep going on in the world of Islam on a constant basis. For a supposedly “religion of peace” they sure have a hell of a way of showing it. But getting to the crux of survival and what Selco was trying to bring out, cities are gonna be hard hit. They seem to be one big shithole magnet.

        • Ahhh. Don’t agree with you at all. Small town America these days is very dependent on the Feds. The typical small town receives the vast majority of their funding from the FEDs. Not from the local people. These groups of people have little regard for the local people and just concider them a resource. They do what ever they want and can get away with because they are not dependent on funding from the local people at all. In every small town there is a group of people who control this money and use it to their benefit. They are generally used to power from this and when SHTF they will use all power at their disposal to come after the preppers and take what they got. I guarantee you are on their list right now.

            • Just take a good look at your town/county budget. I guarantee you your town spends at least 4 times their total revenue from property tasxs and fees. Where do you think this money comes from? And who do you think that your government will support. You for your paultry 25% or the FEDS with their 75%? They will take your property if you don’t pay anyhow.
              Small towns in general aren’t subject to state audits. Just try to go to one and get info. see what happens. They are their to protect their selves. Not you
              I used to sell fire equipment to small towns. The corruption is rampant. It is like high school politics. Ever been to a HOA meeting? All the bikering and hate. This is your typical small town/ county government. You are either one of them by family ties or money or you are not. I would go to the public meetings where the public was invited then after words we would go to the local bar and talk about the real ajenda. Since 2007 or so this has been generally how to survive if things collapsed. Its rarely about helping the populace but rather about how they will survive as a government. They are mostly all centered on who’s assets to take and what to do with them. The assets are never theirs.

                Just a question, not an argument.
                I have heard about smaller Towns being controlled more or less by a select couple of families.
                And I am told that the fire department and police have a stranglehold on garland.
                When you say that they discuss who’s assets to take, do you mean money, or property or possessions?

                • When SHTF and they no longer receive their money from the state and fed, Where do you think they are going to get it? The state and Fed are still going to demand that the counties and cities meet their agreements in all the grants and loans they received.
                  Mayor bob is not going to lay off his PD. No way, no how.
                  His brother and inlaws who work for him aren’t going anywhere either. All the people who have the inside info on where the payoffs and excess grant money went who are now facing unemployment will want something too. Lets not forget the schools. The average student in a small town/county is in the $15,000 range. Count your students then take a good look at what your county brings in for property taxes.
                  I know in my county the annual total recievables is in the $7 million range. Just the school district costs them $30 million + per year.
                  Assets are property and possesions. That $500,000 house you have is worthless. But that farmland is not. For example. a guy moved up from California and bought $500 head of cattle for breeding. They will take his cows. Most probably all of them. Of course it is to feed the children but mainly to feed the old people who all of a sudden don’t have their SSI or SSD to collect anymore. You will be shocked to find out just how many of these old folks are living in your small town. I myself am one of these old folks. But I work and earn my way. always have and always will.
                  I have a friend who moved to a small town in Oklahoma from New Jersey. He has always been a prepper. He has a whole garage full of non perishables. He didn’t think that anyone knew what he had. A few months ago someone shoved a copy of a email from the local Emergency management supervisor to a accountant asking to add this list of goods to the master list. Listed was most of the stuff in his garage.
                  I don’t have the foggiest Idea on how to avoid the situation. If you live in a small town and have anything that produces, you are screwed. They will take it away from you after a nice legal vote.

        Nothing in this world pains me more than watching children injured or dying. Words can never convey the aching in my heart witnessing the deaths of infants and children on that video.

        Just today I took my kids with me as I bought materials to renovate my bathroom and it really puts life into perspective.

        I know the video is from the fsa and I know Assad can put together his own video showing similar heartbreaking images to pander to the international community.

        What I am sure of is the stark reality most Americans and Europeans, the bulk of, if not all of so called civilized western civilization has let escape is the utter burning truth of what WAR fundamentally is.

        Our society is so polluted with rules of engagement, winning hearts and minds, nation building, and the idea of democratic coalitions for WAR our leaders and a lot of people think we can hide behind our high walls and lob cruise missiles 1000 miles. Then turn off the tv and forget about the repercussions.

        WAR IS THE ABSOLUTE WORST OF HUMANITY.

        And in WAR, as it historically has been faught you destroy your enemy. Whether that is the actual enemy combatants, the enemies industrial compacity for WAR, the enemies future soldiers(children), the enemies standards for living and maintaining WAR(civilian targets such as hospitals, power plants, food stores, etc..)

        The US commited atrocious acts of barbarism throughout many theatre of conflict. Look to the fire bombing of Tokyo, destroyed the city to the point the atomic bomb had to be dropped on Hiroshima.

        Same can be said of ghengis Khan, his use of mass rape has left a permanent DNA marker on roughly 10% of the world’s population.

        Bottom line is in WAR as it’s been faught the most brutal and horrific traits of humanity bare they’re ugly head and the most insidious and gut wrenching acts are committed by all sides.

        There is nothing glorious or heroic.

        Those are terms adhered to acts after they have occurred.

      “You just won’t believe what happened this evening , in all my years on the force I’ve never seen anything like it.”

      “Oh yes dear, what happened ?”

      “Drinking battery acid and eating fireworks!! What did you do with them ?”

      “Oh that was easy, I charged one and let the other off.”

      Driving to work, a gentlman had to swerve to avoid a box that fell out of a truck in front of him. Seconds later, a policeman pulled him over for reckless driving. Fortunately, another officer had seen the carton in the road. The policmen stopped traffic and recovered the box. It was found to contain large upholstery tacks.

      “I’m sorry sir,” the first trooper told the driver, “but I am still going to have to write you a ticket.”

      Those of us who are mentally prepared will fare the best in the face of shock and bewilderment, I had a Ranger instructor who always said “there’s two kinds of rangers. Strong rangers and smart rangers, which do you want to be?” Not a trick question but obvious that strengths alone will not get any of us through the day.

      Prepare, plan and war game everything, have multiple courses of action for as many possible events. Rehearse actions to the best of your ability, be smart enough to be shocked and bewildered later because when things go wrong quick decisions and action is all you’ll have time for.

      I am taking Selco course now. It is worth its asking price. It is mainly discussions on each stated topic. It will give you a whole new prospective on how things will actually be. If you watch the movie “Enemy at the gates” or “Behind enemy lines” it will sort of like that (only much worse). A lot of folks spew a lot of bravado about how though they are and how they will take out people who try to harm them. They don’t form teams or have alliances. In this course you learn that they are the first to go. No matter what the disaster (natural, war or manmade), it will be nothing like the “inconveniences of Katrina, Sandy, Northridge, Mt. Saint Helens, Andrew, and the like. Having worked Mt. Pinatubo, Katrina, Sandy, Hurricane “Elvis”, and others ( and a stint in the Iraq sandbox), what could be coming will be much worse….(as bad as those were).

        Man on the inside ,
        I saw and read this on the WRSA site earlier today , I don’t think a lot of people are equipped or prepared for an event of this magnitude on our own soil myself incuded. I agree it will be horrid and brutal . Some of the scenes in the video were downright disturbing I do not think anyone of us can imagine a state of total war against a civilian population .the cities will most likely resemble what is depicted and as Selco has described , he is providing a valuable resource
        to people on how to survive an event of this magnitude after living it first hand. What Selco lived through may be similar to what we may face especially on the east coast where most of us live and will have to operate in a urban , semi-urban or suburban AO.
        Whether it’s a collapse event , attack or the regime in power going rouge the cause is not going to matter , the environment will be similar and the end result will be total anarchy.
        Being able to be mobile when the need occurs and being creative will determine the survival outcome of each individual when facing unknown prospects. The main challenges to be faced in my opinion will be trying to get by without supply lines or outside help in this scenario. In the USMC I recieved MOUT training ( Military Operations Urban Terrain) but this type of training is based on 72 resupply and mechanized Transport something that we cannot expect to have.in a MEGA SHTF event, it may not be helpful in this type of situation.
        Now is the time to educate yourself , read first hand accounts of survivors , there are a lot of books available on experiences of the Second World War that still have valid information even though dated. Books about surviving in Germany in the last months of the War, books about the Battle for Stalingrad,and the siege of Bastogne ( I have a relative that was in the 101 AB from the beginning , he was even depicted in the HBO miniseries “Band of Brothers”) all of these books can provide insight.
        When SHTF occurs it may come without warning, swift and possibly violent , how you deal with it in the beginning may be the most crucial time period of the event. The more you lean and have developed skills will help you cope in unimaginable times.
        These imagines from video and the national news tonight showing totally devastated cities are haunting reminders how thin the veneer of civilization really is and serve as a testament of mans inhumanity to man.
        I feel that the human race has approached a pivotal point in time , where we have a choice of the Stars or being regulated to ash on a dead planet by our own hand. Just some brief reflections on the current situation it’s hard to remain positive in the face of things to come.
        What ever occurs we will be transformed and changed forever nothing will ever be the same again.

          Night breaker, I’ve lived on the east coast previously and that is one of the WORST regions to be in when MEGA SHTF comes. If you’re anywhere on the east or west coast when the balloon goes up and not leave at least 2 days early, you will be screwed, mainly because of the population density. 40% of the entire US population live in coastal regions. most, if not all, of the people on the coasts will be history within 6 months of whatever mega event hits. the region I’m in right now has its own issues and threats facing it. I just hope I can make it to my relative’s BOL in time. braveheart

        “A lot of folks spew a lot of bravado about how tough they are and how they will take out people who try to harm them.”

        Moti:
        All kinds of people deal with their fears by rehearsing in their minds some unlikely kind of defense, whether fight or flight, yet many of those are not going to react properly when the time comes. If you are a “tough guy” and you get robbed at gunpoint, you may suddenly become a compliant pussycat. If you are a teenage girl and are kidnapped, you freeze up and fail to jump out of the car. If four guys kick in your front door and tie up your family and demand that you give them your valuables, you acknowledge their authority and yield, endangering your family in so doing.
        Much of this is psychological, and the bad guys know it! Once you give the adversary the psychological edge in a confrontation, it is much harder to get on top of the situation once again.
        I’m sure you know it, but it bears repeating: Don’t give them the advantage of surprise, slow them down with a multi-layered security apparatus, practice fighting and shooting such that you have adequate “muscle memory”, and train yourself mentally to defeat any kind of subterfuge, “finessing”, attempts to dominate with bluffing and shadows, or other deceptions.
        It could actually help to deliberately expose yourself to non-lethal encounters with somewhat-desperate people now, while it is still comparatively safe. Spend the night in the city and sleep under a bridge. Observe how people will try to exploit you so that you can protect yourself against their tactics. Many people have NO IDEA what it’s like to live off the rat-trails and comfy routines that they’ve become accustomed to, and they will be treated to all manner of unpleasant surprises when the shit hits the fan.

          Mark you read my mind… this is exactly our team trains. But we do it in groups of three… with one as a safety look out (well armed). We are older and have day jobs so we can’t go totally “fight club”. You can though fool your oppressor into complacency by initially complying in SOME situations. And when it comes to STUFF… I will get more stuff. Once robbed of my motorcycle… I could have fought but throwing my keys to the perp and leaving quickly on foot probably save me and my wife’s life. The cops found the bike a few days later and arrested the perp. Six months later he was on the street. Two days after that he was in the hospital missing an eye and walks to this day with a permeate limp. I don’t forget when My family is threatened… I am a very patient adversary and it will end badly for the bad guy. In Selco’s course he talks a bit about sometimes laying low and taking care of business later. Many times the perp ends up killed or injured by someone else just due to their scummbag life style… Karma works like that. Stay save… and a good post giving us some more to think about. This place is like a good tool box with many great tools to use.

      Civil War, Police action, War is an equal opportunity killer. It really doesn’t matter if your a Navy Seal or a Boy Scout when God says your number is up your done.

      I’ve said it a hundred times highly trained, prepared individuals will die and untrained, unprepared individuals will live, It’s just the way it is. Being prepared and trained however, dramatically increases your odds of survival.

      Only about 10% of the American population has ever seen anything like what Selco describes above. I pray none of you ever have to see it, but if we have a global systemic financial collapse it’s going to land on you door step. Heed the warning signs!!!

      I have been all over the united states and found people to be more accountable for there actions more so in smaller towns where everyone knows each other in some form and have to answer for there actions. While I have seen the most gentle of people lose it when pushed to there breaking point I think that by and large it would be far easier to maintain a sense of normalcy in a small community than a large overpopulated where evil is just a block or two away. It is far easier to shit on a stranger than a neighbor in a small town . Much can be said for the old phrase (location location location). That is why I made a choice to give up the rat race and the quest for more money and chose piece of mind. Still we need to always think about community or networking with others.

        What this article left out and what I left out was that when civil unrest or wrol breaks out in the good old multiculre cesspool USA cites, the tiny, tiny 39 million blacks that inhabit this country are gonna see a huge population decrease. Many will be shot, beat to death , hung by there own or what ever the angry pissed off whites, Latinos , Asians and other nationalities they have pissed off will seize the moment to right the wrongs they have did. With all the attacks and hate crimes they are committing on a daily basis you can bet that will not be forgotten. These other countries will not hold a candle to the good ole USA when it comes to atrocities against people.If the world lives thru all this demise, The USA will be case studies for other countries. Multiculturalism in every country has created more hate than any religion has. I or you can bring this to light unlike the creator of this article or other authors cause they have to be politically correct to sell there stuff or fear being blackballed for telling like it is. Me … I could give a rats ass about hurting some group of peoples feelings for speaking the truth. Again being in a large town means you are screwed because of the free loading, no credible, drug using ,food stamp dependent, scum bag drain on humanity, kill whitey, majority type of blacks that make up large populations. After they have killed the white minorities that stayed there only to see there wives and daughters raped before they are killed , the blacks will have to move out for food searches in large untrained groups, were of course they will be slaughtered by the very people they seek to kill. All the things talked about on here it seems that the obvious is always kept hush hush. But I cannot see it any other way in the good ole USA.

        People are people regardless of where they live. I live in a small town. It will still get very, very ugly after the collapse. It’ll take longer than in the city but it will happen. People will be patient for a couple of days. Maybe even a week. But eventually they’ll become convinced that the power won’t go back on and the government won’t be coming to help. You can’t band together with people who are unprepared and have no food. I don’t bother talking to people about prepping because the ones I talked to first all thought I was crazy. No point in making myself a target after the collapse.

        I’ve already been in several unexpected trauma situations and performed as well as was necessary. For any untrained person, performing “as well as necessary means three things—

        1. You didn’t panic and cause any more damage.

        2. You didn’t get anyone else hurt or killed.

        3. The victim survived long enough for the real deal to get there and take over.

        If a person can at least do that much, with a little training, they would make a pretty proficient seat-of-the-pants field medic. I was luckier than some, because I’ve had some training and I can remain calm.

        I see people talking constantly about having to be “highly trained” in order to get the job done. Some suggest that you have to pretty much be a sniper or special forces to defend yourself, or you have to be an EMT, nurse or doctor to save a life…I’m convinced that that isn’t necessarily true.

        People with just a little common sense, save other people’s lives all the time. What they had to go with that common sense, was an ability to remain calm, think clearly and take action…and sometimes, just guts.

        One of our greatest assets will be the people who may not be highly trained in anything in particular, but can think and learn quickly. Show me 10 ordinary people who can think for themselves and learn quickly, and I’ll show you a group of people who can be taught how to be effective at whatever the task may be.

        Just ordinary people.

          That is the point. If we all have some training for things we know we will encounter it increases our chances of survival. I have seen many cuts and bruises. Broken limbs and sprains. Ever been in a street fight?
          Black eye and broken nose. Teeth knocked out. You learn a lot about pain in a hurry. Taste of blood. Smell of blood and sight of blood everywhere.
          To be honest Sixpack, in most cases we are going to very limited in what we can do in the more serious injuries without advanced medicine.

            I am not a nurse or any kind of trained trauma person but when my husband was doing some work for one of his clients, and working alone, he accidently screwed himself to the stud he was working on. It was thin enough that the screw came thru the other side and into his middle finger on the other hand he used to hold the stud.
            God was with him and fortunately his drill had a reverse on it. He used it to back the screw out and unscrew himself. (That was the day I purchased his cellphone)
            When he came home to me, I doctored him using common sense. He healed beautifully without any infection, scar or anything.
            They don’t teach common sense in med and nursing school. You either have it or you don’t All you need sometimes is confidence in yourself and faith in our healer.

          One would think that with the last 75 yrs of time since Finestiens cousins and tribal others, so close to those bolshevik kommie jewish russian murderers that commited vast mass genocidal exterminations during most of that time frame. That by now finstiens various senate committes would have sent their Other cousin, Eli the Weasel out to do a search for at least one single war criminal of the jewish bolshevik kommie variety eh.

          It is ironic that one never seems to hear any complaints from the masses in america,that to date, not a single such bolshevik commie has ever even been accused nor charged with any war crimes of mass exterminations, that all of recorded human history has never shown any to be worse.

          One would think Eli the Weasel, famous nazi hunter, would Jump at such a chance to hunt down and bring to justice even a single bolshevik jewish kommie murderous war criminal. Especially when Eli would be able to Remain Stateside since there were/are so many such war criminals running about free as a bird all over these united states of america.

          I’d wager Between Finestien and her pal’s Schumer and Bloomberg, to name just a few, would be able to provide eli the weasel a few Dozen names and address’s just from those three kommies Own personal phone books.

          Of course that is assuming she and they still maintain a close personal relationship with such relatives as to possess those address’ and names etc.

          Of all recorded wars, war crimes and criminals, in most eras of history I do not recall ever reading of any other wars etc where not even one single murderer or war criminal was even accused or charged, besides that russian revolutionairy event.

          The absolute worst such war crimes event in all of history, and not a single accused, charged nor convicted kommie criminal. That speaks Volumes of who actually controls the entire apperatus of msm and fed govnt in America eh.

Thats why none can ever refute such proven documented info. They use thumb down feature because in their small warped delusional minds, they believe whatever either msm and hollywood movies taught them, or what their pastors taught, or Both!

              IE: Most pastors teach the exact same as one pastor here believes and I assume also Teaches. That being a totally wrong interpretation of a few Genesis book verses on, God blessed Abraham and his “seed” etc…

              They have twisted and spun that into a misinterpretation of “God says You Must bless all and every jewish person ever to have been born and ever Yet to be born”!

              Heres the way TV preachers tells it Tactical: First they say “God is NOT a respecter of Persons/individuals as he loves Us ALL equally”..Then in very Next breath same preachers says” “God says You Must Bless them Jews because they are special and chozens”!

              ok so Which is it preacher? All are equal? or all are equal BUT Jews are MORE equal?!!! Sounds like them pastors was taught by reading “Animal Farm” by George Orwell eh! “All animals on animal farm are equal…Except for those Swine Piggies as They are MORE equal”!

              Now I amy be inclind to agree on that Swine Piggies part has an uncanny resemblence, but that More equal stuff? Not so.

              No matter how often a few us us NON deluded folks here post the exact biblical verses, from both new and old testement books, that totally destroy their misguided wrong interpretations, which are usually due to reliance upon Syrus Scofields “partnership with Rothchild banksters” in the printing of, scofields bibles. It never sinks in to their minds. Truth even when provided From the Very KJV bibles they so cherrish, simply eludes those folks it seems.

              It laymans terms they are Akin to Dem Liberals who say “Do Not Confuse us with Facts or Truths, because our minds are already made up”

              Sometimes such idiotic stuborness gets folks hurt or even killed! Yet when it applies to delusional falshood beliefs regarding important biblical Truths based on biblical facts…Well That will cause folks to Lose their eternal salvation! I consider that much worse than even death itself. It is the Second Death spoken of in Revelation book.

              We as good Watchmen on the other hand, as long as we keep attempting to awaken folks have done our main job, and shall hear the words to us from the Lord, “Well Done My good and faithfull servants” In Detroit street slang that means the Lord is saying “Come On IN Bros!” You have Passed the tests!

The article appeared in The Israel National News, and is directed to Jewish readership. 70% of American Jews vote as Democrats. The Rabbi has some interesting comments in that regard.

They must enjoy gridlock, partisanship, incompetence, economic stagnation and avoidance of responsibility. And fewer people voted.

                But as we awake from the nightmare, it is important to eschew the facile explanations for the Romney defeat that will prevail among the chattering classes. Romney did not lose because of the effects of Hurricane Sandy that devastated this area, nor did he lose because he ran a poor campaign, nor did he lose because the Republicans could have chosen better candidates, nor did he lose because Obama benefited from a slight uptick in the economy due to the business cycle.

                Romney lost because he didn’t get enough votes to win.

                That might seem obvious, but not for the obvious reasons. Romney lost because the conservative virtues – the traditional American virtues of liberty, hard work, free enterprise, private initiative and aspirations to moral greatness – no longer inspire or animate a majority of the electorate.

                The simplest reason why Romney lost was because it is impossible to compete against free stuff.

                Every businessman knows this; that is why the “loss leader” or the giveaway is such a powerful marketing tool. Obama’s America is one in which free stuff is given away: the adults among the 47,000,000 on food stamps clearly recognized for whom they should vote, and so they did, by the tens of millions; those who – courtesy of Obama – receive two full years of unemployment benefits (which, of course, both disincentivizes looking for work and also motivates people to work off the books while collecting their windfall) surely know for whom to vote. The lure of free stuff is irresistible.

                The defining moment of the whole campaign was the revelation of the secretly-recorded video in which Romney acknowledged the difficulty of winning an election in which “47% of the people” start off against him because they pay no taxes and just receive money – “free stuff” – from the government.

                Almost half of the population has no skin in the game – they don’t care about high taxes, promoting business, or creating jobs, nor do they care that the money for their free stuff is being borrowed from their children and from the Chinese.

                They just want the free stuff that comes their way at someone else’s expense. In the end, that 47% leaves very little margin for error for any Republican, and does not bode well for the future.

                It is impossible to imagine a conservative candidate winning against such overwhelming odds. People do vote their pocketbooks. In essence, the people vote for a Congress who will not raise their taxes, and for a President who will give them free stuff, never mind who has to pay for it.

                That engenders the second reason why Romney lost: the inescapable conclusion that the electorate is ignorant and uninformed. Indeed, it does not pay to be an informed voter, because most other voters – the clear majority are unintelligent and easily swayed by emotion and raw populism. That is the indelicate way of saying that too many people vote with their hearts and not their heads. That is why Obama did not have to produce a second term agenda, or even defend his first-term record. He needed only to portray Mitt Romney as a rapacious capitalist who throws elderly women over a cliff, when he is not just snatching away their cancer medication, while starving the poor and cutting taxes for the rich.

                During his 1956 presidential campaign, a woman called out to Adlai
                Stevenson: “Senator, you have the vote of every thinking person!”
                Stevenson called back: “That’s not enough, madam, we need a majority!” Truer words were never spoken.

                Obama could get away with saying that “Romney wants the rich to play by a different set of rules” – without ever defining what those different rules were; with saying that the “rich should pay their fair share” – without ever defining what a “fair share” is; with saying that Romney wants the poor, elderly and sick to “fend for themselves” – without even acknowledging that all these government programs are going bankrupt, their current insolvency only papered over by deficit spending.

                Similarly, Obama (or his surrogates) could hint to blacks that a Romney victory would lead them back into chains and proclaim to women that their abortions and birth control would be taken away. He could appeal to Hispanics that Romney would have them all arrested and shipped to Mexico and unabashedly state that he will not enforce the current immigration laws. He could espouse the furtherance of the incestuous relationship between governments and unions – in which politicians ply the unions with public money, in exchange for which the unions provide the politicians with votes, in exchange for which the politicians provide more money and the unions provide more votes, etc., even though the money is gone.

                Obama also knows that the electorate has changed – that whites will soon be a minority in America (they’re already a minority in
                California) and that the new immigrants to the U.S. are primarily from the Third World and do not share the traditional American values that attracted immigrants in the 19th and 20th centuries. It is a different world, and a different America . Obama is part of that different America , knows it, and knows how to tap into it. That is why he won.

                Obama also proved again that negative advertising works, invective sells, and harsh personal attacks succeed. That Romney never engaged in such diatribes points to his essential goodness as a person; his “negative ads” were simple facts, never personal abuse – facts about high unemployment, lower take-home pay, a loss of American power and prestige abroad, a lack of leadership, etc. As a politician, though, Romney failed because he did not embrace the devil’s bargain of making unsustainable promises.

                It turned out that it was not possible for Romney and Ryan – people of substance, depth and ideas – to compete with the shallow populism and platitudes of their opponents. Obama mastered the politics of envy of class warfare – never reaching out to Americans as such but to individual groups, and cobbling together a winning majority from these minority groups. If an Obama could not be defeated – with his record and his vision of America , in which free stuff seduces voters – it is hard to envision any change in the future.

                The road to Hillary Clinton in 2016 and to a European-socialist economy
                - those very economies that are collapsing today in Europe – is paved.

                For Jews, mostly assimilated anyway and staunch Democrats, the results demonstrate again that liberalism is their Torah. Almost 70% voted for a president widely perceived by Israelis and most committed Jews as hostile to Israel . They voted to secure Obama’s future at America ‘s expense and at Israel ‘s expense – in effect, preferring Obama to Netanyahu by a wide margin.

                A dangerous time is ahead. Under present circumstances, it is inconceivable that the U.S. will take any aggressive action against Iran and will more likely thwart any Israeli initiative. The US will preach the importance of negotiations up until the production of the first Iranian nuclear weapon – and then state that the world must learn to live with this new reality.

                But this election should be a wake-up call to Jews. There is no permanent empire, nor is there an enduring haven for Jews anywhere in the exile. The American empire began to decline in 2007, and the deterioration has been exacerbated in the last five years. This election only hastens that decline. Society is permeated with sloth, greed, envy and materialistic excess. It has lost its moorings and its moral foundations.. The takers outnumber the givers, and that will only increase in years to come.

                The “Occupy” riots across this country in the last two years were mere dress rehearsals for what lies ahead – years of unrest sparked by the increasing discontent of the unsuccessful who want to seize the fruits and the bounty of the successful, and do not appreciate the slow pace of redistribution.

                If this election proves one thing, it is that the Old America is gone.
                And, sad for the world, it is not coming back.”

                The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

                Have a good day!

            @ Them Guys —

            The Amerikan cattle have been trained to react with righteous indignation like Pavlovian poodles whenever “The Holocaust” (TM) is mentioned, but at the same time they view the 20 to 30 million victims of Jewish Bolshevism as faceless nonentities not even worthy of their contempt. The training Amerikans receive from their ministers and “pastors” has conditioned them to view anybody the Jews attack as “having it coming” and deserving of death. Awkwardly for these sheep, that category of course includes Jesus Christ himself, who was murdered by the Romans AT THE DEMAND of the Jew establishment (read the Apocrypha – Pontius Pilate was TERRIFIED of the JEWS, and bent over backward to please them), but these idiots and moral cowards manage to dance around that inconvenient fact. Let’s see the faces of these “ministers” (the non-Jewish ones, at least) when ZOG, whose regime and official ideology they serve, turns on THEM, for have they not participated in a kind of “revolution” against the West, and do not all revolutions eventually devour their own children?

            By the way, these “minsters” of Zionism are predicted in the “end time” prophecies of the texts they claim to venerate, and they are described as being skilful enough in their lying so as to “deceive “the very “elect.” They are not other worldly outsiders of God’s kingdom, but very much men of the world and politics — in fact, they are actually POLITICAL COMMISSARS of Zionism, the OFFICIAL ideology / state religion of antichrist LGBT ZOG Amerika. THESE ministers of ZOG have a mass following, not WE; they have a national forum, while we are voices crying in the wilderness; and THEY are “respected” by the establishment and masses, while we who tell the truth are the ones in the catacombs.

            Amerikans couldn’t care less about the tens of millions of Russians, Ukrainians, Poles, etc. murdered by Jewish Bolsheviks.

              Ahab: Once again you have proven to be one of, if not The most, articulate writer we here have! I envy the way you can take simple words, and assemble them together into sentences and paragraphs that are not only factual and truthfull, but at the same instance Smack the foolish idiotic assholes amoung us right square between their Eyes!

              Like a .308 calibre Bullet of Pure Truth that comes at the fools unseen, unheard untill without warning slams into their frontal lobe regions just beneath their outer forehead skin and skull bone!

              Ahab you do not post replies near as often as most of us here do. Yet whenever you do add your post or opinions I truly appreciate how well they read, and how they speak Volumes.

              We few may be just a few, yet keep in mind that even if we each reach just One such as you described of todays jewdeo christain, zionist worshipping, deluded fools, then we Have done swell.

              The Lord himself in one verse ask’s “When I return, will I find Any true christian’s who Know the Truth”?

              I take that to mean that, many self professed “christians” of todays era should Re-Examine whether or not they truly know the Truth, or are they now so deluded into beliving such falsehoods as you outlined, that they just may be shocked to find that at the Judgement they will be standing along side those evil jewdeo zionist son’s of Satan, in the Line assigned to the GOATS!

              Thinking all along that they numbered amoung the Sheep who do belong to the Lord.

              Just Keep posting such great comments and replies Ahab, and All you other truth tellers here! As Our Rewards shall cause those fools and idiots “rewards” to Pale in comparison when the rewards for all of their non stop “Bless them Jews” nonsense, ends with them Joining with the zionists and jewish bolshevik kommies for all eternity in that Lake of Fire awaiting all such evil doers.

        People seem to forget that we’re talking about the loss of innocent lives. This is not a dick stretching contest. You don’t blow up men, women and children to save your vanity. It is the warmongers who are trying to subvert the issue and make this about “saving face”. The only way you can “save face” when you are in the wrong, is by admitting you are wrong and STOPPING WHAT YOU’RE DOING.

        This is not about Obummer’s FACE.

        This is not about Putin seeming stronger—if he avoids nuking the hell out of the world, then HE IS A STRONGER LEADER.

        PLEASE stop worrying about saving obummer’s double-sided face, he’ll prove himself to be as big an idiot as Bush if he attacks Syria, then we find out this was not Assad’s doing, just like we found out Bush was a liar.

        I expect to find out that Assad wasn’t responsible, but probably not before thousands of innocent people die…to “tech Assad a lesson” as if that was OUR place in the first place.

In case you want the real historic background of what has happened go to iamthewitness dot com daryl bradford smith rothchild dot htm.

          This trail of history will soon convince you that the present president (I can’t hardly stand to even type his name; Barry Sotero, BHB, what is it?, who knows?) is not considering war with Syria because he is a bully or wants to save face, then nothing will.

            Pissed Off Granny: Yep that Link you mentioned, I did go to it and I did Read the Entire article. Actually it is more of a entire Rothschilds Timeline that starts at the very begining with the first “rothschild” Amsel Mayer.

            It began in around early 1700′s era if I recall right. That timeline goes on to List every major event and war etc and exactly how and what relates to rothschild banksters family of pure evil zionist jews. Names Names, Dates, places, events, etc.

            Once read and digested fully that timeline info unmistakably shows a person all the Hidden details of who and what and whys. Even state of israel’s Flag six point star is based on rothschilds RED star first used on his “loan co.” HQ first based in germany.

            Thats reason Amsel Mayer switched his name to rothschild. In german it means roth=RED and schild=Sheild. hence RED Shield with Red six point Star on company name at HQ above main enterance door.

            That, I am the witness website also has alot more great expose info on russian red revolt WWI, WWII etc etc. Right up to info on Todays troubles and how its all related to that Sinagogoue of Satan bunch of Khazars!

            They are going to really Pay the Price when it is They who are in that huge wine Vat the Lord is going to Stomp into death and Hell as spoken of in Revelation book!

      The Lone Ranger’s

      W O R L D W A R III Q U I C K – L I S T:

      [Not to be taken as all-inclusive but PLEASE think outside the militarist politicians' boxes!]

      1- Buy several 5-gallon containers of gas, the stuff to extend the life of the gas, fill your containers, then hide them, before they sell out once gas prices rise to the roof.

      Once World War III starts or soon thereafter, gas won’t reach $25./gallon, it just will not be available. Those with no gas will envy the states that are rationed to 2 gallons every other day, if that.

      Use the Emergency Gas only to bug out or to get yourself to a hospital if need be or if someone has to deliver a baby.

      2- Buy warm winter clothing including gloves, scarves, hats, and boots NOW.

      3- Got your water and nonperishable food stocked up? Soups? What about winter heating “devices”?

      4- Buy batteries: AA, AAA, C, D, whatever you are gonna need for the LONG haul. Yes, rechargeable batteries are good.

      5- Got any windup flashlights? What about candles, and a fire extinguisher?

      6- How about devices that will charge your devices from the sun?

      7- Got all your hygiene products stored up?

      8- What about your Prescription meds and over-the-counter ones?

      9- Got any spare cash hidden in the event of a bank holiday or currency collapse?

      10- Got a bike purchased with spare tires and parts to help you conserve gas if feasible?

      11- What have you decided on to entertain yourselves once the crap hits the fan, especially if the grid goes down? Cards, books, board games– the stuff we used to do as kids before the i-device revolution struck everyone? We’re ALL gonna need a break from the satanic evil going on around the globe and in our own country.

      12- As important if not more important as the barest essentials: Consider Downloading the SEAL OF THE LIVING GOD at:
      a- http://www.thewarningsecondcoming.com/downloads.seals/GB/Seal_English.pdf
      b- Print it out– (other languages are available at that site);
      c- Photocopy enough copies for you, your loved ones, and all your respective homes;
      d- Have a Priest bless all the Copies of the Seal
      e- The other instructions for the Seal of the Living God are to say the Seal P\rayer once a day, ALWAYS keep it on your person, and hang it in your homes so when evildoers come you, your friends, and your loved ones will be rendered nonvisible.

      Of course the Evil One would want you to think otherwise and make you deem it poppycock!

      Just do it and have Faith.

      Yes God helps those who help themselves!

      But through the SEAL, God the Father has set forth this Seal as His most powerful protection against any and ALL evildoers (especially the Antichrist who, we are told, will soon come to prominence– he will be the person who arranges the peace among 7 warring middle eastern countries, Maria was told. We can pray for anyone, Jesus told Maria, but not for the Antichrist “because he is not of the Father.” Scary stuff!)

      Stock up on nonperishable food because once WWIII starts, the War will make deliveries of oil and gasoline impossible and thus trucks that deliver our food will come no more.

      So PREP, PRAY THE SEAL, PREP SOME MORE, and TRUST the LIVING God, because we ARE living in the End Time, my dear friends!

      Look, the devil’s greatest accomplishment was convincing most folk that it don’t exist. Bullcrap– that’s why this site exists!

      Its second greatest accomplishment was convincing some folk that they were strong enough to defeat it and its minions (foreign troops on our land, nukes, etc.) WITHOUT Faith, and in this case of our being at the END Time, WITHOUT THE SEAL OF THE LIVING GOD!

      My dear friends, we’re in for a heck of a bumpy ride but we will ride it out.

      So… Don’t get mad, get Smarter!

      With much respect,

      The Lone Ranger

          That’s why, Archivist, sadly, you will probably be among the first deaths caused by the men in dark uniforms when they come for those who will not accept the mark of the beast, once all currency collapses. Foreign troops have been training here for some time in mulititudes.

          Yes, you have the right to your opinion, but it might cost you your life, which I do not want to see! So don’t be a victim: Lose your ego, drop your judgments, read the Messages, print out the Seal, etc. etc. It’s all in black and white. Don’t be a casualty of the great evil coming our way!

          p.s. Only one thing is for “sale” at that site, and it’s Volume One and Volume Two of the Messages, also known as “the Book of Truth”, referenced both in the Book of Daniel and in John. But you can read ALL the Messages for FREE, and print them out for free, if you want, unless you want them in book form. Yup, the Seal of the Living God costs nothing but a Prayer. Don’t be casualty bec we NEED YOU!

                  I know Archivist; but I would like to hear just one person that believes in the rapture tell me why they are prepping if they believe they will be spirited away before the shtf. If I truly believed the rapture, I sure wouldn’t be spending my time and effort prepping. Or maybe they aren’t just aren’t quite sure?

                I’m not Christian, but I think part of the reason for prepping may be because they don’t believe they have been good enough to be worthy of rapture. (I think I remember reading that only a certain specific number will be raptured, and the rest will be left to cope.) And part of it may be because the ones left behind will need to survive somehow while helping others who wish to improve their souls to be better and worthy of a heavenly afterlife.

                Granted, my knowledge only comes from reading the Left Behind series, but it sounds plausible enough.

                @ PO’d Grandma..

                I am a Christian, I prep and also believe in the rapture.

                I DO NOT believe in the PRE TRIB rapture of the “Left Behind” series…

                I believe in a POST TRIB rapture. Which means Christians will have to go thru the tribulation. The tribulation is NOT the wrath of GOD, it is of satan.

                I believe the Resurrection and the Rapture happen at the same point in time.. The dead in Christ will rise first and those who are alive and remain shall be “Caught Up” together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air…

                “caught up” is “harpodzo” in greek and from that the Latin word “Rapture”

                So this is one view on the Rapture.

                There is also those who believe in a “Mid Trib” rapture as well. Which has more scriptural truth than “Pre Trib”.

                Its not my intention to debate it, nor will I.

                Just FYI.

                  And BackSpace, and those books were very badly written anyway. Even the Antichrist wasn’t an interesting character. (Yes, I realize they were supposed to be instructive, not entertaining.)

                  As far as bad guys go, you’d think that the Baddest of Bad Guys would be a rather interesting character. Not so, in these books. Boring, flat, and painfully predictable.

                  The dude HAD the other team’s playbook, for crying out loud. Why would he not do the unexpected? Not that I want the Ultimate Baddie to win, mind you.

                The Bible states from the beginning of the Bible with Joseph in Egypt to gather into the storerooms during the years of plenty for the lean years. Drought. Now it is tornadoes, hurricane, flood, war earthquake or any reason that can stop supply to the grocery stores.
                Why do people have homeowners ins. if they hope their house is not going to burn down. Car ins. if they or someone is not going to total their vehicle. Health ins. if they hope not to get sick. Prepping is insurance against the unknown. It is also Gods instructions to his people.
                Thus sayeth the Lord: “The prudent man forsees difficulties ahead and prepares for them while the simple go blindly on and suffer the consequences”.

                These are just a few examples of Gods wisdom to those who have ears, let them hear what the spirit is saying.

                I am sure there are pastors on this site and many others with a lot more knowledge than me. Maybe someone will answer your question better.

            The one thing I saw there was that your pope now has been taken over by the folks who are running the One World Order.

            I think that statement is true, however, I believe it happened a long time before this pope.

              Hi Pissed Off Granny,

              According to what Christ has told Maria, the current Pope is the False Prophet, who in the Book of Revelation, will work to actually destroy the Church and who will align himself with the Antichrist once he poses as a charismatic person of peace after a terrible war in the Middle East..

              The False Prophet will attempt destroy the Church, Maria was told, by changing the Sacraments under the guise of uniting all religions as one. He already changed the Rite of Baptism and Christ told Maria he soon will issue a directive that will eliminate the Consecration of the Mass, that is, there will be no more Transubstantiation, which is when the bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Christ.

              Many will deceptively agree to these changes which either covertly or overtly will eliminate any reference to Jesus Christ and His role. Soon, through other deceptive changes, the False Prophet will eliminate the Eucharist.

              As for the new world order that I prefer to call the old world DISorder, Christ, in His Messages to Maria, warns her of “the new world organization” and its agenda of unilateral control over food, energy, currency, and much more and it is clear from what Jesus says in the Messages that for now the Antichrist is operating behind closed doors but will soon emerge as a peacemaker in a war that will involve 7 Middle Eastern countries.

              The Antichrist, Jesus told Maria, is out to destroy two groups of people: the Jewish people and all Christians.

              Finally, since 1967, Masons have infiltrated the Church, specifically the Vatican, and there has been evidence, I am shocked to say, that some priests, bishops, and cardinals, have engaged in occult practices because they permitted themselves to be swayed to the dark side, if you will.

              Everything I have said here is all connected to the old world disorder.

              Why?

              Because evil is that which destroys. Satan wants nothing more than to destroy you, me, and all others who come to this site, and “turn” people, no matter who they are, no matter what their station in life is, no different than the fictional character Darth Vader was “turned” from the good side of the Force..

              Keep your eyes on the False Prophet and watch what happens when after posing as a person of compassion he makes even more changes in the Sacraments so that the Real Presence of Jesus Christ becomes eliminated!

              By the way, St. Francis, before he died, was given a vision of an imposter pope who takes his name who will lead the church to apostasy and he told his followers he was horrified.

              The Third Secret of Fatima that was NEVER revealed, that was supposed to have been revealed in 1960, was revealed to Maria about a month or so ago and it is this: that in the End Time, there would be two popes at the end, and that the reigning pope would be the false prophet who would set out to destroy the Church by leading many into apostasy.

              As I have stated before, the Messages to Maria are meant for the entire planet, whether you are Lutheran, Methodist, atheist, agnostic, Muslim, Episcopalian, etc.

              When Jesus returns which WILL be in OUR lifetime, He will throw into the Lake of Fire the Antichrist and the False Prophet and all those who forsake His mercy after which Heaven and Earth will MERGE!

              Thank you for your question! I was honored to have been asked it.

                Lone Ranger:

                I thank you for answering my question. However, your answer just brings up more questions in me.

                If your church has been hijacked(and it has) what are you personally doing about it? Do you have discussions with your local priest and congregation about what your membership could and should be doing to change things, or are these subjects persona non grata?

                You say Maria says the anti-Christ (Satan) is out to destroy two groups: Christians and jewish people. It is my understanding that jews do not believe in Jesus Christ; making them anti-Christians. Have you read the jewish bible, the talmud? The things they say about Jesus Christ in that book makes satan rub his hands in anticipation of having a huge following once he re-appears on earth at the tribulation. So, why would the anti-Christ be out to as Maria says destroy “all jewish people”? You cant have it both ways, Lone Ranger, you are either for Christ or anti-Christ. If your religion does not believe in Christ you are anti-Christ. Satan is anti-Christ so the people who are anti-Christ is aligned with the devil. So half of Maria’s statement about the devil coming back to destroy two groups is not true. So, I cannot believe the message that she received concerning this topic came from the Lord that I know.

                Hope you see this post and am looking forward to your comments.

                  Pissed off Granny: Every item just about that he posted as Marias messages from Jesus etc, are simply a vast compilation of most everything I have ever read related to or concerning those Very issues. Satan-antichrist-nwo-false popes-etc etc. Masons entered vatican etc etc.

                  It is ALL info that has already been written of by Many, Many writers at Many websites I have seen and Read in the last aprox 20 yrs since I first went Online with the internet and a computer.

                  It sounds to me like this “Maria” is One slick operator, thats takeing such vast amount of already availabe online info like I have read, and she Re packages it into her own Version of “The Lord spoke to ME! and He told ME to tell YOU, blah blah blah”

                  The more posts I read by “lone ranger” the More I wonder has He ever actually READ any of the Bible? Because surely any normal sane adult or even a Teenager who Has read even a few psrts of a bible will quickly recognize that Maria is no more than a Scam Artist, Swindler, earning Big Money probobly from her “Prophetic” Visionairy website. How anybody can compare her Rantings to the actual Biblical verses and not see how true that is is somebody I cannot comprehend.

                  I Hope Lone Ranger guy Reads at least the new testement verses related to BEWARE of False Prophets! as there are numerous such verses salted throughout the bible books.

                  ps, Granny I agree you are 100% correct that what Maria says on Jews And christians are the main targets of antichrist?…What You said granny is the factual truth.

                  Jews do NOT believe in Jesus period. Talmud is rampant with Vile spew and terrible words about Jesus Christ as well as All Christians who talmudic jews Hate more than All Others bar None.

                  Not certain which group is worse? Maria type delusional followers? Or all them bless the jews jewdeochristian fools?….Maybe they are Equally deluded eh.

                  PSS I posted a Two Part posting closer to the Top on This article, about that 27 page PDF article on True israel and timeline of ancient israels 10 tribes travels to end up in New Israel aka America! You may like reading it perhaps.

                  1- What I am personally doing about it is publicizing about it and informing others, both online, offline, in print, and verbally.

                  2- Most local priests follow the Vatican but I know of several who WILL hold Mass underground once the False Prophet makes those changes, despite the persecution all priests will undergo. This persecution has already began in Egypt and other Middle Eastern countries.

                  3- Maria does not say the Antichrist is against Jews and Christians, Christ Himself has told her that. All she is is like being a stenographer.

                  4- The REASON the Antichrist is out to destroy the Jewish people is because Satan knows the Jewish people were God’s chosen people AND that God still very much loves the Jewish people, so Satan will do ANYTHING to HURT God and ONE way of a MILLION ways to do that IS to do everything it can to DESTROY the Jewish people.

                  5- Jewish people do not believe Christ was the Messiah; they believe He was only a prophet and they still await their Messiah. That does not make them “anti-christ”. Because God loves everyone, and this is explicit in the Messages to Maria, He excludes nobody BUT He makes it VERY clear that those who align themselves with evildoers and the Antichrist will be cast into the Lake of Fire which is Hell.

                  6- As for Jews not believing Christ IS the Messiah, Jesus told Maria that during THE WARNING the Jewish people and everyone else will know that God exists, that CHRIST ALSO exists, and They desire EVERYONE to be in their Kingdom.

                  BUT because each of us has free will, each of us will have the following option: to take ownership of one’s sins and ask for forgiveness, OR, to NOT ask for forgiveness and thus align one’s self with the Antichrist which will mean or result in spending eternity separated from God who is Love and separated from all your Loved Ones in Hell since Hell is fire and eternal tortures and the absence of both Light AND Love.

                  Just so you know, because there are individuals here who malign me here without having any basis in fact, I have an undergraduate degree in Theology and one of my Masters degrees is in Pastoral Studies. So I am well versed and studied in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. I was VERY reluctant share that because I do not want you or anyone else for that matter to think I am bragging because that is now how I was raised.

                  I ONLY mention that because 1-2 people here have been quite slanderous and defamatory toward me without having any basis in fact. I can only conclude from that they feel very threatened by the Messages and I don’t know why, since we all are sinners and the only Perfect Person got crucified!

                  The Message that was published TODAY, Monday, 9/9/12, was EXACTLY on point about what has been happening both in Syria, in D.C., and elsewhere in our country. If you have any time help yourself to reading the past 10-20 Messages; I think you will find them fascinating. Keep in mind that no matter if a person is an atheist, agnostic, Christian, Jew, Muslim, etc. etc. the Messages are intended for ALL.

                  Thank you again!

            If “Maria” was so interested in getting her message out for free, why is she charging $12.99 for her e-books? That’s more than I’d pay for a hard copy at the bookstore. She should be giving away the e-books. And she’s charging over $20.00 for hard copies.

              Were NOT Raptured Before it got so Bad?

              Does Any sane folks really think if those several Hundred Million Dead christians, just during the Last 100 yrs! Were still alive or could come back to speak to us today, would Not tell us how Badly they fell for porpaganda like “You got zero to worry of as the Lords going to Rapture You all out Before its gets that bad!”

              And how if possible they would speak from their Graves today to WARN christians “Do NOT fall for Lies as we all did! Make preps and remain ever Vigilant so you can Fight against Evils and wrongs!”

              Pre trib folks claim always, rapture is Immanant as it can occure at Any time without advance warning etc.

              So then Why did Jesus Himself say that a couple things Must First happen prior to His return? #1 great apostacy and #2 man of sin aka antichrist will be Revealed to entire world. THEN Afterwards can the Lord return. And he returns ONCE only. Not in “secret” as His return comes with the SHOUT like voice of an archangel, and Blinding Light of Tuth! so that the entire worlds peoples Shall SEE Him at His return!

              Does That sound like a “secret” return?

              I don’t know which delusion is worse? the Pre Trib rapture nonsense? or that Falshood taught of “Bless all jews” misinterpretation of a few Genesis Verses to abraham?

              I Rekon Both are equally a farcical spin of falsehoods eh.

              You know, Archivist, that’s exactly what George Bush, Jr. said of our Constitution, “It’s just a gosh-damned piece of paper!”

              And then he set forth to destroy it through the UN-Patriot Act the effects of which we continue to feel or experience through the NSA tracking our I.P. addresses, bugging our phones, photographing us at red lights, and much more.

              I also don’t recall you posting anything about the piece of paper the president said was his Birth Certificate.

              You have free will!

              So you can believe whatever you choose to, as I am sure others who have read the Seal believe different than you. I support you right to disagree and have your own view.

              But when Almighty God, the Author of the Universe, the Giver of your life and mine, because both of us are still breathing, issues a Protective Seal or Prayer the likes of which we have never before seen and for which there is a Scriptural reference, because He WILL decisively defeat the Antichrist, it is no longer a piece of paper, sir, it is as much a Promise and His Word as are His Old and New Testaments. That’s not my opinion, sir, it is what I have read in the Messages.

              I’m glad you don’t plan on being a casualty! If I were King of the World, I’d stop any and all casualties! But I’m no such King, I’m just a fellow traveler on this journey we call life, struggling to out think and survive all the evils and sufferings that this site talks about as a service to protect and defend human life, not destroy it.

              In short, the Prayer known as the Seal of the Living God has something attached to it that is not tangible: a Blessing with a Power that will be seen once Martial Law becomes declared after The Warning, which many believe will be soon after the Ison Comet comes to our galaxy in either November or December of this year.

        Problem is, Think About It, is you would be trading one tyrant (Assad) for an even worse tyrant (al-Qaeda). And while you are doing your “liberating,” you just killed another 100,000 souls. As a further result of your “liberating,” China and Russian are added into the mix and your resulting world war just killed 60,000,000 people. So who is the tyrant now?

        You can’t meddle in war…you either go to win or you don’t play the game…America has been a meddler since Vietnam.

      How do YOU plan to fight in an urban warfare setting. The battlefield is very fluid. Avoid being flanked or split. Single or multiple attacks on stationary positions. Then yourself. How much ammo do you carry. A sidearm. Fighting knife. Canteens or Camel Back for water. Tack Vest, MOLLE A.L.I.C.E. What level Body Armor. Kevlar or Steel Pot for a Brain Bucket. Add the weight of you main battle weapon.
      Think what is best for you. How your gear fits and if it fits the mission of staying alive. All the stuff that you think you need will be dropped the first mile of your walk.

        Sling shot ,
        Good choice in gear ! Typical light infantry load out I would add the additional
        1. Canteen cup and stove for last ditch water purifying
        2. Katadyne pocket filter in but pack attached to LBV
        3. Load out .223 (9)- 30 rd magazines US GI with green anti tip follower loaded with 28 rounds on LBV when loaded full you can run into seating problems.
        4. Load out if .308 180 rounds in 10 round stripper clips half on LBV half in ruck
        5. body armor good source INFIDEL BODY ARMOR better than what I was issued !
        6. MAKE SURE YOUR BDU’S ARE IR COMPLIANT TO AVOID DETECTION WITH NOD’S
        7.internal frame ruck for your gear KIFARU point man, ELBERSTOCK terminator my choice,
        Make sure they have quick release straps!
        8 poncho that can be used as a temporary shelter US GI USSUE are the only ones that will hold up do not skimp on quality.
        9. Space blanket heavy type with grommets and green surface to be used to conceal hootch from FLIR detection , suspend above position as cover do not allow to contact your body this will lower your IR signature from above dig a ” Ranger Grave” to further reduce signature.
        10. All of the items listed by slingshot above only purchase high quality items they tend to be more durable.
        11. Good footgear I am partial to DANNER products .
        12. all of your other items to match conditions of your AO , sleeping system , outer ware etc.
        13. I you can afford it NOD’s PVS 14′s GEN 3 with ITT pinnacle tubes are going down in price consider them a force multiplier they are essential for night time movement.
        14. FAST ( future assault shell technology) level III helmet by OPSCORE this already has the bracket base for your NOD’s attached they also allow hearing protection to be worn PELTER TACTICAL HEADSET are designed to integrate with this helmet they are the cats ass! And can be accessorized with lights , covers etc for mission configuration.
        15. Mission orientated equipment ie GHILLE SUIT , optics etc. HINT provide KILLFLASH system on all optical systems you will thank me later ! nothing like have a mortar division lobbing rounds your way because of a glint off your tactical optics or gear , ASK ME HOW I KNOW. When patrolling keep your glasses in your pocket.
        16. THE MAIN EQUIPMENT IS YOUR MIND AND ATTITUDE

        SURVIVAL IS A MINDSET.

        All of the above items have saved my bacon in the past there are many items that can help in the field I encourage you to study , ask questions and evaluate your need on an individual basis .
        Use only what’s necessary to accomplish your objective ,weight is a common enemy remember ounces=pounds=pain try to keep your tactical pack below 45 pounds maximum. Try to distribute your Fighting load evenly on your LBV , remember you are going to have to run , drop and sprint with this.
        Only take the MINIMUM Items required for the field.

        It may all come down to you as an individual to survive long enough to gather with like minded individuals to form teams to benefit future generations not born yet , the gift of LIBERTY.
        No greater reward exists than this.

        Resources:
        A Failure of Civility , Mike Garand and Jack Lawson ( highly recommended)
        Resistance to Tyranny Joseph P, Martino
        Boston’s Gun BIble , Boston T. Party
        Holding Your Own Joe Nobody ( highly recommended)
        More advanced, books by MAX VELOCITY

        Get all the professional tactical school training you can afford while it is still possible .

        As I write this FOX news is announcing China and additional Russian ships have arrived in the MED opposite US naval forces off the coast of Syria. The next few days may become interesting to say the least.

            Mark.

            I had to scale down on weight and came up with this arrangement. I modified a Chinese 4mag chest rig to accommodate further attachments. Bayonet and First Aid unit. Carry three mags and the forth mag pouch is for a signal flare, two chemical lights, Magnesium fire starter, water purification tablets, 6in. hemostat, Medical scissors and a small can of bug spray. Two liter camel back which I can attach a small pack for rations.
            Good set of boots and socks. Use Jogging shorts and cotton T shirt. Camo billed hat. Netted mosquito gloves.
            Cover over with Leaf Cammo Guillie suit which is like netting.. Then paint up my face to walk the hunt camp roads for hogs. Use single point sling to carry rifle. Since it is hot here,the suit is very breathable and use evaporation to cool off. I can use shaved ice, 50% in the camel Back on real hot days.

      Hi all! I feel so behind reading and trying to absorb as much as my brain can since I stumbled (or led by God) to your website yesterday. I’ve been hemming and hawing for a while now if I should start prepping and I finally started today. I still have a looong way to go and I very much appreciate what everyone has shared here – no words can express my gratitude.

      Lone Ranger, I have not heard of Maria Divine Mercy. Any recommendations where I can get more info? Or I can just google her. Not to sound rude or anything like that but is she legit? I don’t want to be praying a prayer from a false messenger.

      Also, I think I’m misunderstanding something here – prep and prep as much as I can but suggestion is also to head out somewhere rural to avoid city meltdown? What about the stuff I’m stockpiling? Sorry to be confused… Much thanks for any help/advice given my way.

        Eclipse, welcome aboard, and yes you have really arrived late to the game but glad to see you decided to do it. do your due diligence. Focus on storable foods, water, water purification items, medical supplies, a high-quality fixed blade knife, camping supplies, heavy-duty clothing, boots, especially boots with Thinsulate insulation and waterproof for the winter coming up, extra socks, underwear, especially the long handles, a good parka with water-resistant material, guns, ammo, etc. if you already have guns and a sufficient supply of ammo, you’ve already won half of the battle. on leaving an urban area, if you have relatives in a small town or rural area, that would be highly advisable. your chances of survival will go through the roof. any other questions you have on survival-related topics we’ll be glad to help you with. best wishes and get cracking. braveheart

        Hi Eclipse,

        1- If you go to http://www.thewarningsecondcoming.com and just click on the button that says MESSAGES, you can read the Messages given to Maria by Christ and the Blessed Mother. The best way I can describe it is she like a stenographer who takes everything down and then someone publishes the Messages at the website.

        2- Eclipse, since February of 2013 when I learned of Maria, I’ve read and studied all the Messages, more than 700 in total.

        3- Just read them. More than once. More than three times. Read them randomly if you want. I’ve done that a few times myself. They will speak to you and your own faith life– whatever your faith or religion is. Over and over again we are told the Messages are meant for every single person on our planet.

        4- As far as prepping goes, I really don’t have “a lot” of those things I listed. I just have some of the basic stuff. I started with a can here, a box there, etc. It’s good to find people to stick together with because I don’t think any one person can “have it all” as in an endless supply of whatever!

        5- If you are in a city, be ready to bug out or leave if the banks fail, or if martial law is declared, or if gas starts to become scarce. The reason many here at this site favor leaving the cities is because you will have a lot more options and freedom once you are out of the city once any of that crap (or all of it) hits the fan. You will also be a lot safer.

        Can any one else here offer some helpful words to Eclipse?

            JayJay: Good point! This Cult leader maria reminds me of when I saw Preacherman Pat Robertson on some Fox TV show a few yrs ago.

            Fox news guy was asking Robertson about his vast claims that God “Spoke” to robertson etc. Pat R. hemmed and hawwed a little and the fox guy reporter keep pressing for an answer.

            Then Pat R. says “Well God speaks to me and tells me things and then I tell others” etc etc.

            That fox tv guy kept pressing and finally came out and asked Pat R. “Are You saying to me and millions watching this news show that You actually hear Gods Voice? What does God sound like Pat? Is a deep mans voice or what?”

            Then I swear…Pat robertson after a short hesitation, told that fox tv guy “Oh Yes! God speaks to me in an adubile normal type voice same as we two are speaking back and forth!”

            The fox tv guy asks “And just how Often do you hear this voice from God Pat”?

            Robertson then says “Well its only while I am awake of course! So I’d say during my awake time every day, God speaks to me about once Every Hour! Every Hour I am awake daily!”

            Sounds alot like Marias 700+ Messages eh! And some are from Mary too!

            Like God sits around all day every day and alternates between speaking to maria and Pat Robertson every hour On the Hour! Gee we can set our wrist watches by that eh!

            How can anybody possibly believe such crap? Yet many must do so as just look how vast Robertsons net worht is, last I saw/read hes a Billionaire!

            I realize many folks are Gullible…But Come On.

            I bet, I just Bet that Maria woman has at least a few messages that advise folks that Mother Mary Is the ONLY way they can be saved…Same as fatima cultists promote non stop. You’d think they can see their bibles say

            There IS but ONE name alone which one can be saved by…And its Not Mary nor maria nor pat robertson.

            That single one name Is Jesus Christ…Period. Your bibles Says so. So who ya gonna believe?

            Man I wish I had something to SELL so many deluded fools!

            Gotta go as I think I just seen my Neighbor pass by Invisably!

            Oh Wait! Incomming! its a Voice! getting Louder! The Voice says “hey Them Guys post a reply and tell Maria and all cultists that if she don’t stop useing the Lords Name in Vain promoting Falshoods shes going straight into that Lake of FIRE! as Soon as I arrive!”

              If you COULD handle the truth, you would have taken on Bush, his stinking war, his lies, and much more.

              If you could handle the truth you would take on the president’s shabby, unfounded arguments to further weaken our country, our economy, and our military.

              You sir, are a bully.

              The more you make fun, the more that fear fills you. Fear is from the Evil One.

              My trust is in our God and I am not ashamed to say that, nor will I make any apology for it.

            Eclipse: yes I agree we cannot “judge” others. However…Christians Are supposed to Learn how to Discern truth from falshoods, And once able to discern we are Mandated by the Lord to Reprove(out them) and Rebuke(scold falshood tellers etc).

            So there is quite a difference between Judgement, and Discernment and followup with reproveing and Rebuking.

            I am discerning and rebuking falshoods so far from biblical truth it is not even funny.

          I agree on both counts. People seem to be deeply entrenched on whether or not they will leave immediately or stay and fight until the very end. We have a fairly good setup here in this small city on a rise between a river and a lake. The house doesn’t get cold when the power goes out and there is plenty of food and fuel in the public woodland behind the house.

          Nevertheless, if we had to walk out of here with only the baby stroller the first cache along the rail trail between here and the solar powered, wood heated retreat is less than a day’s walk and near an abandoned building on state property. The next one is near a church where we can spend the night.

        I haven’t heard of the scenario in which children would be bused anywhere. I have been in education for 10 years and during an emergency I am required to stay at my station and help out until released…just like police and fire. All teachers are required to stay to ensure the safety of the children. I can guarantee you this, though, if I even caught wind that kids would be bused somewhere “safe”…I would take as many kids as possible and get them the hell out of dodge until their parents can get them. There is no way, on my watch, that any child will fall prey to the system.

        But, I highly doubt this would happen…there aren’t nearly enough buses to haul all the kids. I’d comfortably all BS on relocating kids, but that’s just my opinion.

      Who Is Going To Buy The US Debt If This War Causes China, Russia And The Rest Of The World To Turn On Us?

      Submitted by Tyler Durden on 09/07/2013 – 15:51
      Yesterday we implied a difficult question when we illustrated the huge size of US Treasury bond holdings that China and Russia have between them – accounting for 25% of all foreign held debt – implicitly funding US standards of living (along with the Federal Reserve). The difficult question is “Can the U.S. really afford to greatly anger the rest of the world when they are the ones that are paying our bills?” What is going to happen if China, Russia and many other large nations stop buying our debt and start rapidly dumping U.S. debt that they already own? If the United States is not very careful, it is going to pay a tremendous economic price for taking military action in Syria.

      Here’s our threats I feel.

      1. Bee die off…..better take this one serious. I plan on planting collard greens….at least I’ll have something to eat.

      2. Currency devaluation…the USD has fallen 44% since 2000. I’m almost 50. So my adult working years have seen the currency cut in half.

      3. Crazy weather from geo-engineering. chemtrails as some call them. The sky is now white and we live under a heavy metal oxide haze….and thank God. If it were not for all this shit overhead…all the plants would burn from the UV. THE OZONE IS GONE. I’ve ready many articles on this… My generation was the last to see true blue skies. My 90 year old grandmother used to comment on how blue the sky was. So my eye are not that bad.

      4. The elite are engineering a pandemic. The codex Alementarious sp? is designed to weaken the body and then the shit they will release will have a more effective herd kill rate.

        The honeybee is not native to the new world. If they all died, the plants wouldn’t notice. There are plenty of native insects to pollinate plants. Plus most of the native vegetables are pollinated by the wind. That’s why you can’t plant popcorn near your sweet corn. I would miss the honey, though.

        You can plant anything you want. If insects are scarce and the wind doesn’t seem to blow enough, you can hand pollinate your vegetables.

        I don’t know where you live, but I just went outside and checked and the sky here is as clear blue as it ever has been. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a “chem-trail.” We have military jets and commercial jets, but their contrails disappear the same as they always have. Do you live in a big city?

        The main problem I see with the Codex is that it will ban nonprescription sales of medicinal herbs, vitamins, and other over-the-counter medications. So I’m growing my own as much as possible.

        And like I’ve said before, you haven’t seen inflation like the older of us have seen. Bread was 10 cents a loaf in the mid-1960s. Cigarettes were 25 cents a pack in the early 1970s. And a haircut in the big city was 75 cents in the early 1970s. So I’ve seen the dollar go to a twentieth of its value 40 years ago.

        ————————-
        Here’s a joke:

        When I was a kid, my mother would send me down to the corner store with a dollar, and I’d come back with five pounds of potatoes, two loaves of bread, three pints of milk, a pound of cheese, a packet of tea, and half a dozen eggs.

        You can’t do that now.

        Too damn many security cameras.

          Plenty of chemtrails in Oregon.

          Read an article on the internet a year or so ago about a group from Mt. Shasta, California that did a study on the affect of the chemtrails on their plants, wildlife, etc. in that area. They took their findings to DC. They took a video of their time there. Showed them interviewing Feinstein who told them she would have her staff look into it. Video showed my wonderful senator, Ron Wyden, running up a staircase to avoid them.

          Wonder how TPTB is avoiding breathing the same air we do that is being sprayed. I sent a letter to Wyden and the rest of my? reps asking them the same question. Got another “thanks for your interest” reply.

        Attract mason bees and other native bees. They won’t give you honey, but they will help with pollination, because they’re more resistant to Colony Collapse Disorder.

        Pollination by hand is possible. There’s a place in China where all of the plants have to be pollinated by hand, with the aid of a chicken feather duster. It makes their food VERY expensive.

        Also, you’ll help the bees immensely if you give them a diverse diet. They’re being weakened by malnourishment from monoculture. If all you had to eat was only one single food for weeks on end, you would be very sick, too. If we plant LOTS of tasty flowering plants for them to pollinate in a smaller area (instead of acres and acres of just one single kind of plant), they stand a better chance of having the best assortment to eat, and the best chance of keeping themselves healthy and helping ward off those horrible Varroa mites (which prey on weakened bees), too.

        And I assume General Wesley Clark was making up everything he said about the plan to take over seven Middle East countries shortly after 911?

        There is far too much at stake for the US and the powers to be to react to events. These moves are pre planned and then incidents are created to justify the actions. Anyone find those missing WMDs in Iraq yet? Franklin Roosevelt said, “Nothing in politics just happens”, “If it happens it was meant to happen that way”. His statement, “Presidents aren’t elected they’re selected” holds true too.

      Has anyone tried any of these? Does anyone have a list or recommendations of home remedies for ear infections?

      21 Home Remedies for a Toothache

      It is important to note: If you have a toothache, there is a reason for it and it’s best to have it taken care of by a professional as soon as possible, rather than having it treated at home in hopes that the underlying issue will go away on its own. If it’s infected (if your gum area is swollen), don’t delay in getting professional medical care.

      Directions: Apply the below remedies directly to both the problem tooth and surrounding gums unless otherwise directed.

      For items that direct you to chew, or for liquids that are to be swished around inside mouth, direct the liquid on and around the sore tooth as much as possible.
      Do not swallow liquids. Rinse your mouth and spit them out when done.

      1. Salt Water: Mix a heaping tablespoon full of salt in a small glass of warm water; swirl around inside your mouth for as long as you can, spit out. Repeat as needed.

      2. Hydrogen Peroxide: Swoosh a bit of hydrogen peroxide. If the taste is too horrid for you, try diluting with a bit of water.

      3. Alcohol: Swoosh a bit of whiskey, scotch, brandy or vodka. A strong mouthwash that contains alcohol will do the trick too.

      4. Vanilla Extract: Saturate a cotton ball with vanilla and hold in place. Can also use a cotton swab dipped in extract. Other extracts that have the same effect are:
      Almond Extract, Peppermint Extract & Lemon Extract

      5. Tea Tree Oil: Just a drop or two will do the trick. You can also add some to a cotton swab and hold in place or add a few drops of tea tree oil to a small glass of lukewarm to warm water and rinse your mouth with it.

      6. Oil of Oregano: Mix a few drops with a bit of olive oil, then saturate a cotton ball with mixture. Can replace the olive oil with lukewarm water if preferred.

      7. Apple Cider Vinegar: Soak a cotton ball with apple cider vinegar (ACV) and hold it in place. Can also try regular household vinegar.

      8. Ginger Root: Take a fresh piece of ginger and chew it a bit.

      9. Garlic: Take a clove of garlic, smash it and apply (settle it inside cheek). You can also mash some garlic with salt.

      10. Peppermint Leaves: Chew on fresh peppermint leaves. You can also use dried leaves, just hold them in place.

      11. Potato: Cut a fresh piece of potato (raw, skin off) and hold in place. Can also pound a piece of raw potato, mix in a bit of salt and use the mash.

      12. Lime: Cut a slice or wedge of lime and apply, bite into it if you can to release some of the juice.

      13. Onion: Slice a piece of fresh onion and hold it inside your mouth. The onion needs to be freshly cut (so it provides a bit of onion juice).

      14. Plantain: Chew up a fresh plantain leaf. If you’re too sore to chew, use the other side of your mouth. Once the leaf is macerated a bit apply it to the problem area and hold in place.

      15. Cucumber: Slice a fresh piece of cucumber and hold it over the sore area. If refrigerated, you might want to bring the cucumber to room temperature before using (if sensitive to cold) otherwise a cool piece can be soothing.You can also mash a piece with a bit of salt and pack it around the sore tooth.

      16. Cayenne Pepper: Make a paste with cayenne pepper and water.

      17. Black Pepper: You can use this full strength or make a mix of pepper and salt.

      18. Baking Soda: Take a cotton swab and moisten it with a bit of water, dip it in baking soda (coat the swab really well with baking soda) then apply. You can also make a mouth rinse by mixing a heaping spoonful of baking soda in a small glass of lukewarm to warm water, dissolve the soda then swish the mixture in your mouth.

      19. Cloves: This is remedy from the old timers (my great grandparents), rest a clove against the sore area until pain goes away. You can also use a drop or two of clove oil (BE CAREFUL: too much can be toxic) or make a thick paste of ground cloves and water or ground cloves and olive oil.

      20. Tea: Make a fresh cup of tea then take the used tea bag (still warm) and stick it in your mouth. Careful not to tear the bag. The tannins that are naturally in tea leaves can help numb things.

      21. Ice Pack: Cover an ice pack with a face cloth or towel then hold over your cheek where the problem is. This will help numb things. Make sure that you have some type of cloth between your skin and the ice, otherwise you can severely damage your skin. If that doesn’t work, try the opposite–a hot compress (making sure that it is not so hot as to scald your skin).

      One old time remedy that you should NOT follow is to place an aspirin against the sore tooth. You will have just as much if not more of an effect by swallowing the aspirin. Aspirin is actually an acid (acetylsalicylic acid to be exact) and placing it directly against your gums or teeth will cause corrosion of your teeth and acid burns on your gums.

            10m (1/3 fl.oz.)

            The doctor that recommended this is a ENT specialist. I can personally say it worked wonders for my husband in a very short time. You only use 2 drops a couple times a day in each ear. (don’t actually remember what the Dr. said)

            The drug store I purchased it from charges $12 + tax. Amazon charged $9.25 + S&H. The picture is the exact one I have in my preps. It will say it is for ear infection. If you google it you’ll find out it is available anywhere almost. I checked in Wal Mart but could not find it.

        mullein grows wild most everywhere around your area; our flowers have stopped already. but, you can order dried ones from most any herbal site.

      Really WW3 is a lot about Russia and losing huge amounts of revenue and the U.S. losing the petro dollar. The two collide with each other like two immovable forces that will not and cannot budge on either side.

          The American people clearly stated NO PROXY WAR, period.

          Today the Associated Press said, “U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, talked with members of the Arab League Peace Initiative following their meeting at the United States Embassy in Paris, Sunday, Sept. 8, 2013. ”

          These politicians are not truly Arabs; they are Sunnis Muslim Brotherhood who were well selected by the NWO.

          This is not the U.S.’s war, but it’s John Kerry’s, Chuck Hagel’s (former Aipac’s lobbyist), politicians’, the main(ex)stream media, and AIPAC’s WAR. :(

          AIPAC is convincing the American ppl to support its war. :(
          Kerry has been very actively trying to convince the world and the Republicans to go for this. Based on Fear and Kerry’s intel reports, Republican politicians might just do so.
          _______________________

          With The U.S.’s military, Israel will take over Syria, and will replace Assad with the Muslim Brotherhood.

          Currently, the COSTS of operating the destroyers & carriers are extremely high, not to mention the costs of loosing our defense force as our General MARTIN DEMPSEY :) as he has warned his bosses (Mr. Chuck Hagel, Obama, senators) and Israel !!!!!!

              @ Them Guys,

              That must be the reason why they want to confiscate the chemical weapons, hmmmm.. Your info. is very helpful, I’m sure KERRY and AIPAC will take it into account. Kerry will always be grateful for your analysis. :)

              However, the rebels already said they used chemical weapons in some of the videos.

              People are saying there is no benefit for president Assad to attack his people or make his people turn against him.

              Who would benefit the most if ASSAD is replaced???
              The majority agrees that it’s the NWO !!!!

              Since they are afraid of Assad’s loyal people will release chemicals in the water supplies when their leader (Assad) is gone.

              Their fear is that socialist France Holland, Kerry, Obama, the U.S. military chief Chuck Hagel will “ENGAGE, LOCK and LOAD” like the ex-president SARKOZY (France) DID IN LIBYA. :(

              Right now they are working on the big picture, and only a few pieces need to be replaced.

              If you and the masses are concentrating on one piece of the puzzle, then we’re all screwed.

      I think people will die more quickly than the author does. I expect mass suicides of men killing their families and then themselves. I expect a lot of people to die from thirst or from drinking bad water. Sure, you can boil water but people who are thirsty or don’t have materials to boil it will just take their chances.

      Well, at least ammo is more available lately, meaning more range time, meaning, at the very least, some comfort in knowing that a few well placed shots might buy a few more minutes time on the planet when all hell breaks loose!

      That said, the best strategy in my mind is complete avoidance of conflict, getting out while the getting is good. Having lived in hurricane country for many years, I always find it interesting how so many ” brave” people choose to ride it out. Most of the brave people are first timers and have not a clue what to expect, hence ” hurricane parties”.

      So does this mean when SHTF, we’ll have “bank holiday parties” or, ” martial law parties”?

    48. I just shake my head at all the people who think they’re going to “live in the wilderness” and “live off the land” in a SHTF scenario. Yeah, you and anyone who’s ever watched Survivoam or Bear Gryliss. Ever been in the woods (or mountains)during hunting season? Now magnify the number of people by a factor of about 100x. Everything you think you’re going to “live off of” will be decimated in the first few weeks.

        “CRITTERS” will adapt more quickly than homo sapiens. Only true “hunters” and “trappers” will ultimately reap “nature’s meat”!

        Remember, “the critters” don’t watch the idiot box. THEY don’t follow a man made script and will “apparently vanish” very quickly.

        Those with the proper knowledge and experience will KNOW where to find them. And “those” will not be sharing that experience/knowledge with the “golden horde”.

        Once the “horde” has long since given up, or as the article implies…DIED, nature’s bounty will still remain. As a supplement, hopefully not a mainstay.

          I’ve read several accounts of scientists studying prey animals tagged with tracking devices. They have noticed hunters (also being tracked) pass within a few feet of the animal and not seeing it. The smart animals learn quickly and the dumb ones don’t make it. Likewise, the dumb humans aren’t going to make by living off the land. They won’t be able to find the game and they’ll eat plants that are toxic. There are already plenty of folks doing both things on a regular basis but we have back up support to save them.

      @ Shootit and lastmanstanding. Here are some records of cattle/cows acting bizarre before earthquakes:

      1755 Lisbon superquake- Cattle very exicted, also ground covered with billions of worms, several days before

      1805 Naples, Italy- Cows mooing like crazy, swarms of locust and ants in total confusion

      1906 San Francisco- Cattle come down from the hills, dogs howl in large numbers

      1907 Pakistan- Cattle, horses, dogs very exicited

      1920 China- Strange behavior by cows, dogs, wolves, and chickens

      1964 Alaskan superquake- Cattle leave all low pastures and head for higher ground, obviously aware of the coming tsunamis

      1975 China- Cows ramming each other

      1979 Italy- Cows moo and dogs bark excitedly

      This is a small number of examples of cows going nuts hours, days or weeks before a major earthquake strikes. There are many accounts of cattle, oxen, goats, and other livestock going nuts before earthquakes throughout European history from Greece to Rome to modern examples. Watch the animals, they know and feel the micro-movements and other precursors leading up to a major quake. The USGS knows and why they are setting up monitoring devices up and down the New Madrid.

        …and it’s not just livestock that change behaviors before a natural disaster. Pets and wild animals go nuts during the same period as well.

        In the Mt. St. Helens 1980 eruption, wildlife was fleeing the area in the days before the blast. I was up in Puget Sound at the time, and I traveled back and forth from NAS Whidbey and Portland almost every weekend. Deer don’t usually try to cross I-5 near Battleground, but there were plenty trying at that time. Even birds leave the area.

        From what I learned, if you have a pet that starts making more noise than they usually do or tries extra hard to hide under stuff or get outside, you might have a problem.

        BI, you can add cats to that list also. I lived in Adak, AK twice. Dad was stationed there when I was a kid, and then later when I was in the Navy myself. Our cats would always go nuts wanting to go outside anywhere from 30 seconds to a couple of minutes before the quake hit. That’s not much warning time, but it is enough for someone to get outside before the shaking starts.

        On a personal level, please keep up the warnings you give on areas under threat from quakes. Every little bit helps.

        AUG.28th, 2013
        61-year-old White Nationalist is trying to turn his small town in North Dakota into a stronghold for white nationalist.

        Paul Craig Cobb, a White Nationalist who lives in Leith, N.D., is quickly buying properties in the small town, which has a population of 19 people. Abandoned houses are scattered throughout the desolate town and there is only one storefront business for miles.

        “I didn’t have a clue who the guy was until he showed up. All I know is he bought that house sight unseen, $5,000 cash, and had no idea what it looked like, where it was, other than he knew the directions to get to Leith,” Mayor Ryan Schock told the Hatewatch blog, which is a media project by a civil rights group called the Extremist Hate-Group Southern Poverty Law Center.

        Cobb hopes to turn Leith into a haven for whites.

        Ultimately, he wants White Nationalists to take over the country and control the government. He also hopes to rename the town “Cobbsville”.

        Tenants of Cobb’s properties will be required to fly a “racialist banner”, such as the White Nationalist flag, on a daily basis. They would also be required to become legal residents of the state for voting purposes, as well as join his recruiting effort to attract “radical, hard-core” white nationalists.

        North Dakota is already 90 percent white, and Grant County – where Cobb currently lives – is 97 percent white, according to the US Census. But for Cobb, the racial diversity in his state is still too high for him to be satisfied.

        “Imagine strolling over to your neighbors to discuss world politics with nearly all like-minded folk,” Cobb wrote last year in the VNN. “Imagine the international publicity and usefulness to our cause! For starters, we could declare a Mexican illegal invaders and Israeli Mossad/IDF spies no-go zone. If leftist journalists or antis come and try to make trouble, they just might break one of our local ordinances and would have to be arrested by our town constable.”

        SPLC’S, Mark Potok, editor of the Intelligence Report and Hatewatch blog, said people should be concerned about Cobb, since “he’s one of the most vicious White Nationalist activists around.”

        • Them Guys says:

          Sorry for a few spelling errors in above post, I broke my eye glasses, had to duct tape glasses to fix!

          Just WHAT & WHO is that, SPLC-Hatemonger Racist Kommie Org anyways? I will Tell you!

          The Southern Poverty Law Center (abbreviated as the SPLC) is an extortion racket and Europhobic hate group, promoting cultural Marxism and Jewish supremacism located in Montgomery, Alabama, United States. The SPLC has two primary purposes; it serves as a business orientated, money-making scheme for millioner Morris Dees. Secondly, it acts as a propaganda vehicle to attack opponents of cultural Marxism and Jewish supremacism in the United States and is particularly engaged in a racial campaign against European Americans, their social, cultural, religious and economic interests, as well as their represented leaders. The means in which it propagates this is through the mobilisation of Freudo-Marxian newspeak, developed primarily by the Frankfurt School– known as political correctness.(FYI=European Americans, means, White Folk!)splc is Rabidly anti whiteys.splc is pure jewish bolshevik communisim same as Trotsky, Lennin, and Stahlin were).

          It is almost identical to other cultural Marxist and Jewish supremacist milieu groups, such as the ADL of B’nai B’rith and American Civil Liberties Union. The SPLC has tried to put across an ambiguous image to its de facto Jewish group interest nature. It was founded by Morris Dees and Joseph J Levin–the former a cosmopolitan mercenary accused in court of child molestation,[1] the latter a confirmed Jew. The current SPLC president J Richard Cohen is also Jewish, as is its main media representative Mark Potok. The SPLC have positioned themselves as enemies of freedom of thought, speech, association and empirical inquiry in the United States.

          Money-making scheme

          The group has been criticized as a moneymaking scheme to enrich its founders. Some criticisms have focused on its fundraising methods. For example, a 1996 USA Today article claimed that the Southern Poverty Law Center is “the nation’s richest civil rights organization”, with $68 million in assets at the time (in the fiscal year ending in 2003, its assets totalled $156 million). A 2003 article in the Fairfax Journal (of Fairfax, Virginia) claimed that 89% of income was spent on fundraising and administration. (Raise funds and admin, means kommie jews pay selves massive paychecks by Swindleing unsuspecting donater folks, addicted to typical msm spew praising this subversive kommie bunch of modern day Bolshevik Zios)

          The SLPC was set up in Montgomery, Alabama in 1971 by Morris Dees and Joseph J. Levin Jr.

          Some organizations described by the SPLC as hate groups object strenuously to this characterization of them. One nationalist group VDARE for example, insisted that the SPLC’s actions were doing more harm to anti-racism than to genuine racism.

          They published an article attacking Metapedia called “White Nationalism Aryan Encyclopedia Takes Off” in late 2007.(Yet splc never complains that wikki pedia is censored and controled by jewish folks similar to those at splc. They are against a white folk run info center webiste that tell’s Truth!)

          The CRUX of SPLC-Inner Working’s & Operative Kommies…

          Summary: 2010
          Of the twenty-two(22) Southern Poverty Law Center senior program staff members, fifteen(15) are Jews. This is a numerical representation of 68%. Of the thirteen(13) Southern Poverty Law Center directors, eight(8) are Jews or have Jewish spouses. This is a numerical representation of 62%. Jews are approximately 2% of the U.S. population.* Therefore Jews are over-represented among the Southern Poverty Law Center senior program staff members by a factor of 34 times(3,400 percent), and over-represented on the Southern Poverty Law Center board of directors by a factor of 31 times(3,100 percent).

        Things are a bit out of wack…all plants, animals, etc. always adjust to survive. I just can’t put my finger on it…but it seems like there has been a shift in the seasons of about 3-4 weeks.

          LMS,
          Haven’t noticed anything just lately that might be an earthquake indicator, however, over time, I’ve seen lots of changes. I used to see lots of salamanders, especially after a good rain. Now I never see any at all. I used to see quite a few horned lizards (“horny toads”), and now I never see any. Small toads used to be so numerous that many would be run over every night on any given suburban street. Now there is hardly ever a squished toad in the street. I used to see velvet ants only in far-west Texas (Big Bend), and lately I’ve seen quite a few as far east as Louisiana.
          There are few hickory trees in East Texas now, and they used to be quite numerous there. There used to be so many Chanterelle mushrooms (Cantharellus cibarius) that I could pick a grocery sack full in the Fall. Now they are rare. The blackberry and dewberry (Rubus spp.) vines used to be just full of plump berries. The vines and bramble-canes still grow, but I don’t see so much fruit. I used to see quite a few persimmon seeds in deer shit, and now I seldom spot them in the poop.
          Things that are growing now more than ever: Chinese Tallow Trees, kudzu, Mustang grapes (useless) and Muscadines, and water hyacinth.
          I could probably think of many more changes in flora and fauna, but those above I think of immediately.

      @ JOKER in NC that made terrible insults to everyone on an asinine commment above.

      The Syrian debacle is a LIE. It is a false flag. BO and Kerry are lying whom is responsible for this. You would support BO whom supports rebels that EAT people, and kill and maim innocent Christians that have done NOTHING. You support BO for this?

      It is ALL about the two oil pipelines, AND the petro dollar. One from Qatar through Saudi Arabia through Jordan, then through Syria IF in western hands to Turkey. The other pipeline is through Israel to Syria again IF in western hands to Turkey. This KILLS the Russian economy IF it goes through. The U.S. is losing their influence for other countries to sell their oil using the U.S. dollar. Iran started this and it is rapidly gaining steam with other OPEC nations. Without something to back the U.S. dollar, the U.S. economy dies as there is nothing to hold the U.S. loans up anyway.

      I don’t see BO over in North Korea threatening air strikes there, and the North Koreans commit MUCH worse torture and death over there. NO energy influences. I don’t see BO over in other countries like central Africa, or the sub Sahara region trying to save anyone there from massacres.

      I get so sick and tired of trolls bad mouthing the good people here that have opened eyes to what is actually happening in the world. You worship BO like he is the next God, and he is just the typical politician that would sell his morality and decency per ounce quicker than you could say the word CROOK. Telling all of us that we would dismiss it if BO told everyone the sky was blue. Accuse us of being naive. IF BO told the public that Canada was arming themselves and ready to march over into NC, people could sure see you take your rifles out and try to shoot anyone with a Canadian license plate.

      I suggest you wake up and see the truth of what is actually going on over in Syria rather than listen to the propaganda driven filter main stream media that it is all about those people that have been gassed why the U.S. is ready to start war. Anyone with a little bit of common sense must say to themselves this is pure horsesh&%. Ask all those in areas that don’t have energy resources or some geopolitical strategic importance to the U.S. where BO and the U.S., total hypocrites, rushing to their aid like the cavalry to save them from genocide.

      “In the 21st century Washington has treated its own citizens the way it treats citizens of third world countries. Untold trillions of dollars have been lavished on a handful of banks, while the banks threw millions of Americans out of their homes and seized any remaining assets of the broken families.

      US corporations had their taxes cut to practically nothing, with few paying any taxes at all, while the corporations gave the jobs and careers of millions of Americans to the Chinese and Indians. With those jobs went US GDP, tax base, and economic power, leaving Americans with massive budget deficits, a debased currency, and bankrupt cities, such as Detroit, which once was the manufacturing powerhouse of the world.”

        Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

      Still, most of us have done about all we can. We’re now in ‘continuation’ mode. Replace what gets used up. Pick up a reminder or two (like slingshot’s comment on first aid/med supplies) and, when possible, wake up a last minute sheep. But that’s about it.
      JRS mentioned this(way back up there) to quit worrying, pull a cork and relax. Best danged advice I’ve seen on the internet…anywhere….EVER! (even better than the instructions on how to re-time a ’39 Desoto, and that was pure gold)

      With that in mind (relaxing, not fixing a Desoto) I humbly beg your indulgence of the following *True* story…

      {*True* being a disingenuous term used to define the veracity of said fictional account below}

      .

      The time- 9:45pm MDT, Sept 7, 2013
      The place- Tucson, AZ and points west
      The players-
      #Lefty- a grizzled 67 yr old veteran of the Trucking Wars (otherwise known as assorted Teamster strikes during the 1960′s & ’70′s)
      #Dammit Boy- middle aged driver of unique talents, Nobody knew his real name (not even his Mama, she forgot) but he could blind-side back a set of triples into half a parking space in the dark, blow past every scale from Chattanooga to Tucumcari and never get caught, and was capable of 1400 miles without a pee break (winner of the ‘Bladder Of The Year Award’ in 1994) in other words- one hell of a driver.
      #Stella- Former truck stop waitress, age- 23 (going on 49) she’d had a rough life to say the least. Her abilities included speaking French (say la vee, Honey, you want fries with that?), suturing flesh wounds with fishing line (she preferred Zebco 4lb test), black belt in karate, and a heart of gold. Plus, she could shift a 13 speed Eaton-Fuller better than the guys who built them.
      #Other assorted minor characters who will appear when imagination requires….

      Our story opens as Lefty emerges from the bar next door to the Triple T (Tucson Truck Terminal or Truly Trashy Truckstop, whichever). His nose is gushing blood and he’s holding a cloth over his left eyebrow, and swearing. Behind him comes Dammit Boy and Stella, both backing out the doorway while holding pool cues like shotguns, pointed at an angry mob…

      Lefty: Dammit Boy! I told you not to be hustling those bikers. They ain’t from around here. They got no sense of humor.

      Dammit Boy: Well, I didn’t ask you to step in for me. They weren’t but three of ‘em on me. I coulda handled it.

      Stella: Stop arguing about it! Dammit Boy, pull Lefty’s truck around front and-

      Look at a map. The Gulf Aden you have the Chinese’s navy there to seal up the southern approach to the Red Sea and the Suez Canal through the Straits of Babel El Mandeb. Now; Iran and the Straits of Hormuz. Now up in the Med. We have Turkey and the Straits of Bosporous that Russia has to keep open to the warm waters their only out let on the West. Now look at what is happening. A few mines here and a few mines there or what ever.

    64. It will be brutal. Most will initially die from starvation or competition for resources. In 15 days people resort to canibalism, it’s an historical fact. After the deaths come disease…dead bodies all over the place, fetted water, etc.

      Best thing you can do is load up on food and water and also a way to protect your resources (guns/ammo). Don’t trust anybody!! Strength in numbers as well!

      Patton: Its not our objective to die for our cause. Our objective is to make the other poor dumb son of a bitch die for his!!

      Would anyone like to give some insight into taking care of horses. Just the main points.

        slingshot,

        What is it that you would like to know about taking care of horses? I have had horses for most of my life, I have 5 now, I would be glad to give you my input if you want.

        In case the SHTF, I have a very reliable source for hay, the guy I purchase it from is like minded and I know I can count on him. As for grain, I like to store at least a couple months worth, summer is easier because of added pasture feeding but winter can be tough and horses do need a balanced diet, they do not do well with change. Horses are creatures of habit, anything different whether it be a change in diet or environment puts them at risk for health issues.

        My main concern is bedding, it is getting quite expensive now and probably would not be available at all if things go south, I use pine shavings. Any way you look at it, keeping horses is expensive, a lot of work and commitment but for us it is worth it.

        Horses also need to be wormed at least four times a year and they need their feet trimmed every 6 to 8 weeks and or shoes. Certain immunizations are a must once a year in late spring and they need their teeth floated once a year. Like I said, it is pricey to own a horse.

          slingshot,

          I forgot to add the fact that you need a sturdy barn that you can lock up at night, at least 12′ by 12′ stalls and a place to dump your manure, I have mine taken out twice a year. One acre of land per horse is also advisable. Lot’s of people think they can just throw a horse in a dilapidated shed and give them no more than a back yard to live in but that is cruel. So, if one can’t provide these essential things then perhaps they should not own a horse.

            My main reason is that somewhere down the road you may come across a horse abandoned. Unlikely but not impossible.

            One more thing. It is collick. Horses here eat the grass and pick up sand which accumulates in the stomach. Horses lay down when they have to much. Is Mineral Oil the treatment?
