    Prepare for the Coming Cyber Wars: US Government to launch Pre-emptive Cyber Strikes

    cyberinfrastructureFor years we have warned our readers about the dangers that a full scale cyber-attack could have on our infrastructure; now those dangers are even higher as the Federal Government prepares to launch Pre-emptive cyber strikes against rogue nations.

    According to the New York Times, President Barack Obama has just concluded a secret legal review of the administration’s new cyber war guidelines. The guidelines give President Obama the power to order pre-emptive cyber strikes to protect national security interests. This news comes as a number of financial institutions have recently admitted to being hacked by foreign hackers.

    Last month we spoke to cyber security expert Damon Petraglia, about the dangers we face in this new era of cyber warfare. Petraglia shared how vulnerable our country is to cyber-attacks, and suggested that our entire cyber-supply chain is already under attack.

    He told us, “We have been attacked and we are under attack 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Our military systems are probed in excess of hundreds of thousands of times per hour. Our private industry can claim similar statistics.”

    How can you prepare for the coming cyber wars?

    Petraglia  suggests, “preparing for an actual worst case scenario is similar to the preparations one would make for extended period without adequate food and water supplies and access to emergency services.”

    Threat AssessmentPart of being prepared for any type of threat, means knowing exactly how that threat will affect you during a time of crisis. By performing a realistic threat assessment, you can get a better idea of what actions you need to take during a real life cyber-attack situation.

    Emergency Communication: When the power lines go down and the internet stops working, there is one line of communication that will still be alive and well: Ham Radio!  Having a good Multiband Ham Radio will allow you to send and receive critical emergency information during a disaster. It’s also a great way to find alternative news sources from around the world.

    Always have Cash on Hand: If a rogue nation were to target our country for attack, one of the first targets would likely be our power grids and or our financial systems. In either scenario, an attack would likely make electronic commerce almost impossible. During a full scale cyber war, cash will play a major role in how people buy and sell during the initial stages of the crisis.

    Start Stockpiling Preparedness Supplies: The first thing you need to do, is make sure you have your essential needs covered. The essentials include water, shelter, food and personal security.  At a minimum, you should always have at least a week’s worth of emergency supplies on hand at all times. Once you have that covered, you should then set a goal to stockpile enough for 3, 6 and then 12 months.

    Know what you’re preparing for, and know what obstacles you’ll be up against: When planning for any type of disaster scenario, including a cyber-attack, there’s really only one thing that we can be sure of;Survival will be a bigger challenge than you ever believed possible. While you can’t be ready for everything, there are some things that you may want to consider when planning for any type of survival situation.

        The corp is preparing the sheep so they will readily accept the “rogue nation” story when the banksters decide to pull the plug.

        The only rogue nation currently operating in the world is called the United States, which is located in the District of Columbia.

        Don’t waste any bullets shooting at foreigners. There are plenty of targets here that have done far more damage.

              Why do you claim the name of Christ then criticize those who follow him? 1 Peter 2:13 commands: “Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every authority instituted among men: whether to the king, as the supreme authority,” We are exponentially better treated than Christians were by their rulers when Peter wrote this.

              There are those serving in our military, paying their taxes, and working in the banking industry who are honoring God by doing so and those standing by in Texas, dropping the “Ph’ bomb, and misrepresenting Christ followers. I want to thank the first group and apologize for the second.

                A response consisting of name calling and a claim of entitlement for service to the corp? Cut right from the corps molds, are you?

                There are two kinds of people in Iraq. Iraqi’s and war criminals. Which were you?
                You can say what you like and I have no problem with it. But it is sad when you defend the propaganda and indoctrination process that is destroying the same country you believed you were fighting for when you followed the orders of war criminals in Iraq and DC. The same process that lead to selling yourself to war criminals.
                But, it’s all good…

                Vietnam Veterans were baby killers. You need to learn about the atrocities the United States has committed and the real motivations behind every war we have fought, instead of brainlessly supporting this big killing big war big military bible thumping chest bumping neocon propaganda nonsense.

              JC says

              ”’Everyone serves this beast, including you. If you bought gas, paid any tax, or even watched or listened to a corp commercial you support this beast.”’

              No, you support it by obtaining it’s licenses and honoring it’s laws above all others. You support it by enlisting to serve as it’s murderer against Gods people everywhere.

              You do not serve a thief merely because he robs from you without your consent through force and fraud.

              I do not serve the beast in any way. I don’t possess a license of any kind. I ask not its permission to live and I serve the higher power in every action against it, including inaction when it says to act.

              You may feel compelled to serve the beast, but that doesn’t mean others who choose not to can not avoid it.

              I am no part of the beast, nor am I it’s enemy. I am real, it is not. I stand for God and nothing else. All I have is His, I am merely protecting His property from those who would damage it.

              Those you feel compelled to serve…

                Gods Creation.

                I see your accusations against Veterans and your lies.

                One side of your mouth saying…
                “I serve the higher power in every action against it…”

                The other side of your mouth…
                “…nor am I it’s enemy.”

                Double speaking betrays you.

                You defend yourself with…
                “You do not serve a thief merely because he robs from you without your consent through force and fraud.”

                Now your own defense will serve to defend the very Veterans you choose to besmirch, calling them “war criminals”. Force and fraud brought against our Nation was used to take what was lawful to be used unlawfully. Thank you for that GC.

                Nothing is hid from God. You stoke these hot coals against Veterans. REPENT and turn from evil. Or heap them upon your own head.

                The Lord is Righteous in Judgement and Grace.

                  Is it righteous to let Veterans be put under boot and heel? Some of these Veterans have been through more than enough already. Some still don’t even know that our Government has been hijacked. Unless you’ve thrown your body on the flight line to stop the deployments to that war, I don’t see how any of you RATE TO CALL THEM BABY KILLERS AND WAR CRIMINALS! Not on my watch. Train your shots elsewhere.

                  “””Some still don’t even know that our Government has been hijacked.”””

                  It is up to each Man to know who or what he serves.

                  If someone was to come and kill your family, only to tell you he thought he was doing good work because he was ordered to do so by a legal fiction called government you can not touch or see, would that be acceptable for you?

                  Is it acceptable for you to force those same actions on Iraqi’s families and they are supposed to accept it?

                  You must look at what a Man does, not what he claims or believes he is doing.

                  If someone has sold out to evil and put on a uniform that commits him to violate Gods Law, there is nothing good he can do from that day forward. You can not do a good work to further the cause of evil. You can not do for God when following the orders of His enemy.

                  Unquestioning approval of the Corp military and it’s atrocities is part of the brainwashing and indoctrination process.

                  A process from which you have not yet escaped. I suspect that one day you will, and you will find no hero’s in military service.

                  I would put no more burden than this on our Armed Forces, Veterans, and LEOs . Accept the Lord Jesus Christ and remember your Oath to disobey illegal orders.

                  “If someone has sold out to evil and put on a uniform that commits him to violate Gods Law, there is nothing good he can do from that day forward.” says Gods Creation.

                  Lord of Heaven and earth. By thine abundant Grace and good mercy remove and unburden this curse made against them that are yours. Among them that live by thine righteousness give wisdom to see what is good to you Lord, and the strength to keep their Oath and turn from evil. In the name of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord we pray. Amen.

          They’re laying the groundwork. With all the recent msm news stories about companies being infiltrated by Chinese hackers. They’re building up a massive military and economic conflict with China.

          Just look at our so called pivot to the Pacific. It is to encircle and contain a rising belligerent China who years ago claimed we are their mortal enemy.

          With our economy in shambles on the verge of collapse what better way to deflect blame and attention away from the real problem. ( The cancerous progressive left in d.c. and across America) They will stoke the flames of nationalism and whip up a fervor of anti chiness sentiment. Once the msm is in full stride the majority of Americans will follow right along into another war far from home and at the cost of billions.

          But this time will be different. We will go headstrong against a foe who has been waiting, preparing and has the ability to inflict serious damage to our fleet and economy.

          Here are a couple of hypothetical scenarios I can possible see playing out:

          1.) Conflict erupts btw China and Japan over the south China sea and it’s vast natural resources. We are drawn in and our pacific fleet and naval bases are completely destroyed. We lob a few missiles into China hitting densly populated areas. After massive loss of life a UN peace is brokered. We limp out of the pacific and begin to rebuild our economy after China dumps the USD. ( Convienently we don’t have to pay our debt back as the USD is worthless) Capitalism and the Constitution are scapegoated for the countries ills and the Marxist Globalist agenda continues to move.forward.

          2.) A larger conflict erupts over the south China sea. America Is unable to pay for a prolonged war with China and other flareups across the globe. We can’t maintain the upkeep and logistics for war on the other side of the globe. The economy crumbles and civil unrest ensues. Our enemies all over the world smell blood in the water. America is blamed by all for the debt, death and destruction. Our enemies bring the war to us.

          What’s left of America is divided up and paid out to pay back our debts. Captialism, Constitutionalism and American patriotism are outlawed. Again the Globalist Progressive machine rolls in unabated this time. Many will speculate this was all by design and the American left elite were complicit in facilitating the end of the American Experiment, free market, private property and individual liberties.

          I’ve seen some posts regarding Washington’s vision for America. This could easily be a scenario in which it plays out. And it will be up to people like us on here to see it fulfilled.

          Just a thought and possible shtf scenario.

            Not farfetched scenarios, Wolf359…. Not at all. And it might be sooner than anyone thinks. Common for dictatorial regimes to turn to external wars when their internal situation gets bad, and China’s has huge potential to go bad. They’ve got a gigantic series of credit bubbles in their “economy”. They’ve got a huge population to feed, which they cannot do without exports, and as the world economy tanks their exports are falling. They’ve also got a high ratio of males to females, as result of years of gender-selection in the womb, and infanticides after birth, due to their one-child policy. All factors that point to them going on a rampage of aggression sometime soon.

              Old Coach,

              I’ve recenly begun theorizing China will not need exports like they do now. They have been hoarding gold and buying up mines and vast quantities of natural resources for quite some time all the while making bilateral deals with BRICS nations, Japan, and SaudiArabia without the use of the USD or petro dollar.

              Once the USD is devalued china will be in a great position to fill the vacuum with their yuan or renminbi backed by gold or massive natural resources they’ve acquired.

              This would raise the value of their currency and the hundreds of millions peasants would now be able to buy consumer items all made in China for Chinese. The ghost cities would be filled with the upward mobility of millions and in the end they won’t need us except to ship them food, oil, coal, gas to pay down our debt to them.

              Nothing is set is stone but if I was a Chinese central planner and I know where the world is headed and the USD is a failing investment this plan would be a great way to stave off economic doom associated with ties to the USD and exports to America.

            We are the most resource rich piece of land on the planet with the least population density (excepting the uninhabitable regions of the planet). Prime target. Our personal weaponry is really the only speed bump in that scenario.

            On a related note, take a look at this chart for external debt by nation. Ask most Americans who we owe our national debt to and they will come up with stuff like China, Russia, etc, thinking that nations owe nations. Never does it cross their mind that the debt is owed to independent cabals.

          Every new event, every news article, everything I hear or read I analyze from A to Z now. The traitors are cunning and numerous and own the MSM, and I don’t react to anything unless I’m fairly sure that I know exactly what I’m reacting to. This includes the attempts at gun control. The Wizard of Oz may have been just a little man pulling strings, but those flying monkeys could still put a hurting on you.

          So I’m waiting patiently, but in the meantime I’m making every moment and every dollar count towards preparing for whatever the Wizard throws at us. And I’ve got a few surprises for those flying monkeys, too.

        I believe that is what they/TPTB want us to think. By creating this illusion of Big Brother watching and knowing every move we make, we are made “weaker” by paranoia. You/I/We know that, “paranoia will destroy Ya”.

        I prefer to believe that our Heavenly Father is still in control and if we are faithful servants and have done everything humanly possible, then we will be “supernaturally” protected. So fuck the DHS and FBI and all the Islamic terrorists. I answer to a HIGHER POWER than all those ass wipes put together. I have been given the power over all mine enemies and the ability to “tread on serpents” by the blood of Jesus H Christ, my Saviour.

              Thanks, DPS. You’re right. But still so much ignorance out there– whites hating blacks, blacks hating whites, one religious group hating another. One of the highest commandments in ALL relgions is “Love ye one another.” It seems to me the only way we can avoid the Destruction of our planet is if we have a paradigm shift in consciousness… maybe it will come, maybe it will yet come.

          • don't tread says:

            Cindy, I see your point, however; The fact remains that any religion or faith towards a god, doesn’t make it the one and only God of Abraham,Isacc, and Jacob. Ignorance is no excuse when it comes to honoring the one true God.

            You may pander to the followers of “allah” and worship him all you want, but he is and never will be the same as the God I worship.

            My bible says any god without Jesus Christ at the center and acknowledged as the “only” begotten Son of the Heavenly Father is none other than a “fraud” and an Idol.

            You can laugh all you want, but it just shows your ignorance of the word and it’s truth. I think most people have already seen that you need some help on this, evidently, by all the thumbs down.

            As far as, “Love ye one another”; that commandment has several meanings. First of all, it means treating your neighbor as you want to be treated, “If”,and it’s a big IF, your neighbor is of a like mind and spirit and loves and honors God by accepting Jesus Christ as Saviour. If he(your neighbor) honors your “allah” and says Jesus was just an ordinary man and puts mohhair-achkmed above Him as saviour, then he is not of the same spirit and rock as ours. If that same “allah worshiping” neighbor says you must believe in his god or have your head wacked off, are you gonna go hug his neck and tell him you love him? That would be a stupid mistake unless you are willing to denounce the “true” God.

            The other meaning of “Love ye one another” is in reference to tough love. God said he would correct us and chastise us to show his love. Sometimes you have to give a “gourd thumping” to those that need correction to show that love. Not all persons are deserving of love. Anyone that believes they are, has a screw loose. Some are just plain evil and mean. There is a place set aside for them and all their followers. We are commanded, by God, to distance ourselves from them.

            FYI Cindy, your preaching to the choir when you come at me with the HA,HA,HAs, and righteous condemnation. I’ve got thousands of hours invested in the “word” and you are gonna have to come up with something better than what you got to change my mind and understanding. Just stating a fact, and thks for giving up the caps, it kinda looked bad on you.

              For all you Islam/muslim/allah supporters and sympathizers check this out:

              The Koran (Quran) allows men to beat their wifes,….
              QURAN 4:34 – “Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them. Then if they obey you, take no further action against them. Surely God is high, supreme.”

              They say the Quran is the words of allah(their god) as was given to muhammed. they say a muslim man can have up to four wives and beat them when he feels they are not being subserviant enough. They say it is ok to marry and have sex with a nine year old virgin. They say it is ok to kill all non-muslims that won’t convert.

              I say: Do you still love them? Are we supposed to believe our “english” version of God is still the same as their allah?

              I say: No and Hell No! My God doesn’t say it is lawful to marry four, nine year old little girls,rape them, and then beat them into submission on a daily, or as needed, basis.

              Still thinking about hopping on the political correctness train and accepting all religions and their gods? If you do, then I would suggest owning asbestos underwear, cause it’s gonna get hot for ya.

                • I lived in the seat of Islam for two years, land of Mecca and Medina, Saudi Arabia, at the end of the first Gulf War. Two years of hating every minute of it.

                  If anything cemented my Chistianity, it was that entire experience.

                  One night, sitting with a fellow American (who happened to have married a muslim gal from Indonesia and had to convert to islam to do it) we were talking about his experiences and the hypocrisy he was seeing in what should have been a “paradise” for his religion. After many hours, I asked him one thing in which I had made a personal observation…I asked him, “Where do you hide something, you do not want anyone to notice?”

                  He looked at me perplexed and couldn’t answer, had no idea what I was talking about.

                  I told him, “You put it out in the open, where people see it every day, they become so used to seeing it that all they see is nothing”.

                  Now…for the reader, what is at the top of every minaret (sp) on a mosque, what is the prominent symbol of Islam? Also for those that know, what is what governs every muslim holiday and the times you go to prayer?
                  The symbol is the crescent moon and stars, and what governs holiday and prayer times is the phase of moon and or the quality/quantity of moonlight.

                  So my personal 0bservation is that the moon and stars are a universal symbol of the NIGHT, lack of light, darkness, opposite of day, light and being able to see. OR one can go the extra step and say night, lack of light is equivalent to Satan, where-as daylight, daytime, full light is equivalent to a true God, that one being the God of Abraham, Father of Jesus Christ his son, the light of the world…

                  just me saying about an experience I had with a fellow American, he converted back to Christianity that night and covertly made plans to leave S.A. during his next “vacation” and just not come back, as he was under penalty of a death sentence. I had to promise not to tell anyone what had happened and I take no credit for his conversion back.

                  Any comments I’d welcome…I’ve been there and lived it.

                  Terry, thanks for sharing that. Symbolism is very important if you take a moment and think about it.

                  Symbols stand for something. Unfortunately, they can be deceiving if one doesn’t look at what they could really mean.

                  I’m going to look at things differently for this point on.

                  Thanks for the comments, sixpack and Terry R. It’s nice to see people are awake and thinking.

                  I agree sixpack, that all who breathe have a God given right to choose for themselves who, or not, to worship.
                  i know i sometimes come across as preaching or trying to convert;….wrong. I’m not. I just put out what I have read,studied and believe is based soley on the “word/letter” God sent to us. If it can’t be backed up biblically, I don’t buy it. I’m no saint and don’t think I’m better than anyone; if they are saved by the blood.

                  Example: When I spoke about homosexuals; and I believe most are atheist or just playing some kind of Church, I say go ahead if that is your religion and what you believe in. Just don’t be so brazen in the open about it and try to warp the minds of my grandkids by pushing your sick and sinful agenda onto them via public education. In saying that, I’m more specifically speaking of the males. Female homosexuality is still sin but there is a difference which I am not on the right forum for discussion of it and it entails more graphic details than I’m allowed to convey here, plus it takes us back to the Garden of Eden and even before.

                  The point being, I have learned it is not my job nor a pastor/preacher/teacher’s job to try and push/convert their beliefs on another. Many have been turned off by religion, especially christianity (ex: most southern/rural Baptist); as too many have the belief, by being taught, that it is their duty to do so. It only becomes one’s duty if they are knowledgeable of the truth and the person/persons are receptive and yearning for that understanding, so as to decide for themselves.

                  I grew up in a country Baptist church where that was the norm, to push, scare, and trick people into become a “saved” christian. It turned many away and caused much division amongst the congregation. When i got older, i decided it wasn’t for me. i found something much better, the “church” of truth. No organized religion for me.

Buddha may have been a man, but he is now dead. If you don’t like the system that God is God, and salvation is ONLY through Jesus Christ, don’t blame Christians, it was God who set it up this way. Talk to God about your dissatisfaction with His system. But, know this: even your knee shall bow and your tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

              If you use those basis’ as reason to reject islam, IE: They use Moon Phases to set days to worship etc AND what one of you wrote about sex with minor girls.

              Then you also Must feel exact same when it comes to Talmudic Judaism. For they also use moon phases for Most if not all religious days and worships.

              And although I do not have the exact verses handy here now, I HAVE posted them Here this site prior more than once. So has JQP and Ahab I believe.

              The Talmud verses I refer to are what allows jewsih Men to have sex with Gentile girls UP TO AGE 3yrs old and thats not any Sin NOR a Crime.(there words Not mine!)

              And talmude verses allow for jewsih Men to also have homo sex with small gentile Boys if Under age of 9yrs old. Then it too equals zero sins or crimes.

              Other talmud verses tell jewsih believers it is not just GOOD to KILL gentiles…But to remember to KILL even the Best of the Gentiles.(Thats ALL non jews worldwide regardless What religion or even Atheists, Gentiles=non jewsih).

              So although many of todays preachers promote jews while same condemn Islamics, it seems rather hypocritical no.

              Also keep in mind the apsotles tell us that ALL who deny Christ or that He came in the Flesh-Died on cross-Rose again as the Only Begotton Son of God the Father who Dwells in Heaven…..THEY ALL are ANTI Christs.

              Far as I know unless any jews or islamics has Truly Repented and Converted for REAL?…They Are included in that antichrist definition…

              Discalimer: Saying the truth and facts or quoteing various talmud or islamic or Bible verses or facts spoken or wrote by Others is NOT racist NOR antisemite NOR anti islamic….Them who refuse to base opinions on Emotions and False teachings will surly Agree I think.

              If not? so what. I know I am correct and reject PC nonsense fully.

              It just makes sense to make mention of BOTH of the other major religions as many calls them…IE: Christian-Jewsih(talmudic=99% of todays jewsih folks) or Islamic.

              I rejct BOTH Islam And talmudic judaism and subscribe to Christianity. Your choice is just That Yours. I Just wanted to include an FYI.

                Thanks AM. I for one, have never heard that about the Talmud verses. Never read but a verse or two here and there, as well as with the Torah or Quran. No need to seek out mens lies when I have the nearest thing to God’s own words in my KJV. Even though some of the translations are off a bit and need clarification for the deeper truth and understanding. It’s still enough for the average person to get what they need. I stay clear of any of the newer translations beyond the first edition of the New Living Bible.

            sixpak: In times of stress lke riots etc, that is totally different scenario. For exampe I am sure you agree that Not All blacks who reside in inner city ghettos are bad right.

            Yet what if I got 100 blacks to stand in a lineup so to speak. And I asked You to tell me which are the 5-10% that are Normal and do NOT act like jungle baboons or apes. Could you actually distinguish which are that “good” 5 or 10?…I choose those numbers based upon my experience and observations, and perspective of life from birth in Detroit till age 43 when I left for good.

            It may be higher numbers or perhaps even Lesser. For sake of debate here go with the numbers I wrote ok…How do you or We determine which are which?

            Remember, in state of massive chimpouts and riots or other mass collapse you/we probobly Won’t have the luxery of observing which are the ones that do “good” things.

            And its not wrong to mention more than a few whites has been faced with ID-ing for instance who Raped them from a police lineup….And the usual response cops hear from a white woman rape victim or robery victim is….”gee I cant say as they All look kinda the same to me!”

            And that is not a racist statement since most whites I ever knew say the same…gee they all look same to me basically….Because, yes they do.

            It is far eaiser to ID a white criminal for most victims.

            So in normal events as you wrote of yes it then can be easy to id good folks of all colors etc…Try Riots!

            PS: I lived thru detroit riots of 1968 era. All I saw was Blacks going wild and looting-destroying what cant loot and burning down the rest. Only white faces I seen when me and a few pals drove down as far as Olympia hocky stadium on Grand River Ave, before Nat gaurd and cops screamed at us to leave pronto before we got killed, were the Nat Gaurd and Cops white faces….

            In that type scenario you’d be crazy to even attempt to ID any good blacks….I sure didn’t see any then.

            PSS: I spent over 10 yrs in the detroit projects amoung all colors of people so please dont say I am predudiced. I learned From Experience. When it gets bad good luck trusting any at random. Most Hate whiteys, it is just the way it/they is. Blame sharpton et al…Now theres a Real racist man eh!

                You’re both right, but; you have admit when it comes to “big city” blacks, they predominately stick together.
                I’ve seen it even in my small home town. In high school, I became good friends with a good ole country boy that I worked with. Blacker than the ace of spades as well as his whole family, about ten of them if I remember correctly. How do I know. I was at his house a few times and even had a sit down,all in the family supper with them. When we got around other blacks at school or away from work, he acted different and at one time even sided with the others in calling me names.

                I’m not saying all, but most will stick together and possibly turn on you just because of your color. I’ll take my chances with my own race when SHTF unless it’s a full=fledged militia; by, of, and for the people.

      God forbid an EMP event where no cell phone service is available. The crowd that is tied to their cell phone like an umbilical cord; well let’s just say, their world will come crashing down like a tree on a squirrel.

      We haven’t seen a PMS event like will unfold across homes in America. Most of the generation X and whatever the latest is dubbed, has been spoiled with all the modern conveniences. Computers/internet, web shopping,cellphones/Iphones,….. and the list goes on. Ape shit crazy won’t begin to explain the hysteria to unfold if all these are lost at once.

      We have been preparing ourselves for such an event. One cell phone, back-up communications via CB radio, TV via antenna. Battery banks and wood burning stoves. If we loose all electric currents, our only inconvenience will be cooking the hell out of frozen goods to can and dry as much as we can before it spoils.

      Just relaying these points to others in an effort to spread the message. No bragging or trying to scare the shit out of anyone. Just be aware of what “could” happen at any moment. Plan an escape plan. I call it the “what if” plan.

        Wise advice. All one needs to do is look around you. Everyone I know packs a cell phone, from the simple to the sophisticated. Age is not a barometer. Most of us (including myself) have stopped listening to the MSM and get our honest information from sites like this one via the internet. Just what will we do if the shtf and this avenue of information dries up? I would venture to say that 95% of the people who post here are at different levels of preparedness….but at least cognizant and moving forward with a plan of preparedness. Again, wise advice.

      I have 2 Grundig portable shortwave receivers with SSB [single sideband] capability for backup communications if/when the Internet goes down. Also plenty of wire antenna to run out to a tree right behind the house for best possible reception. Check out http://www.universalradios.com and look under portable shortwave radios. They carry a good selection, the prices won’t break the piggy bank, and any method of communication is essential if we lose the internet. I keep both of my Grundigs inside of a metal cabinet along with some other electronics and boocoo spare batteries in case of EMP. If your radio takes ‘AA’ like myine do, stocking up on boocoo spare ‘AA’ batteries. i test both of my radios once a week just to make sure ready to go. Backup communications will be so essential in post-SHTF, grid-down, no internet, etc. braveheart

        Braveheart,
        Totally agree, especially with the timing. I went to the local big box sporting good stores yesterday morning cuz they get their truck in on Monday early. Even though I didn’t necessarily “need” anything I keep having this nagging feeling to get more.

        The only ammo I could get was some more 380. Talked to the store manager and he said the lines on “truck day” start hours before the store opens. Common calibers go within minutes to those at the front of the line.

        I keep telling myself “I’m good”, don’t need any more but really how can one really know if they truely have enough. Nagging feeling just won’t go away.

          Kindle, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. PMs in the form of lead,copper, and brass is better than $$ in the bank. About a year ago i said put your extra funds into guns and ammo instead of gold and silver.

          I was ridiculed and thumbed down by many preppers. Now, a year later, most guns and ammo have tripled in value/costs. I haven’t seen that kind of value increase in Gold/Silver. I do think investing a small amount in gold and silver PMs is a good idea, if a person has all other preps in order, but the real money maker was guns and ammo. It may still be.

I hadn’t but the store manager said they brought it in cuz of it was something they could still get. I only bought 1 box of 50. They did have some Fiocchi in 380 and I snagged it. Noticed it was $3 higher per 25 than 2 months ago.

            I did get a healthy amount of silver years ago and have done well. I was checking out selling prices on it today and noticed a lot of it is going for about 15-20% over melt price.

      Kindle, those feelings nag me to the extent that my wife never could [she was an angel to me anyway]. I went to a gun show here in Memphis this past Sunday. Out of 5 vendors who had ammo, only one had any .22LR. I bought the last brick he had for $43.00. I was paying only $24.95 for the same brick around Election Day. The ammo situation has really gotten out of hand thanks to Obama and the other gun grabbers spewing all of their crap. It didn’t have the effect they intended. They just turned out to be good salespeople for the gun industry. The only gun-related items still in plentiful supply are gun cleaning supplies. Picked up some more of those at the gun show also. Just like with ammo, you can NEVER have too much in the way of cleaning supplies. braveheart

      @ JustOneGuy and everybody. I have been trying to work as fast as I can in regards to the swarming effects of the earthquakes. The earthquake on the south Mid Atlantic Ridge, the Reykjanes Ridge, South Sandwich Islands, Balleny Islands, and the northern Canada earthquakes. There are some new targets zones to watch out for. During my calculations the Soloman Islands got a 6.3 just a few minutes ago as this region around 155-165 east is ready for a large earthquake.

      Here is what I see as of Feb. 5, 2013, until Feb.20.

      There is at least a 80% chance of an earthquake of 6.5+ in the following locations:

      -Japan again, several times in the past this has been hit after these locations had earthquakes.
      -New Guinea to Vanautu, this is extremely likely as earthquakjes here keep coming and getting larger
      - New Zealand
      - Kuril Islands
      - Black Sea area
      - Vancouver Island and the Cascadia fault zone
      - California
      - Southern most portion of Alaska, especially the Aluetian Islands
      - Mariana Islands
      - China up until Feb. 16
      - Northern India Pakistan border region
      - Mexico to about Peru

      That is it for previous locations that have followed this signature other than the South Sandwich Islands and deep northern polar regions that lead to much bigger earthquakes after these places were hit in more populated regions.

      80% chance right now, will defintely go up if more plate boundary regions, especially closer to the poles get hit in the coming days. This time those precursor quakes are also aiming the energy signatures back from the Pacific Northwest and somewhat from California.

      Now that I got that earthquake info out I can comment on cyber attacks. The only good issue with cyber attacks is that those vulnerable systems have been preparing for them for a long time. The downside is like a mutating biology virus, these attacks keep adapting and changing. Something worse is that they can be coming from many different sources. What is even worse than this is that unless there is a total shutoff from the outside world, every single last computer on this planet can be hacked. If someone from the future, say 25 years from now, probably all present day computers could be hacked and taken over like any security system wasn’t even there.

      I can imagine that mass cyber attacks is part of China’s assassin’s mace that they talk about blinding the U.S armed forces so they can’t function. There is something to this as the mosre technologically advanced your fighting forces are, the more vulnerable they are to complete uselessness if one or more systems fails. kind of like the way an EMP would make the modern automobile go completely belly up, yet some 1960′s muscle car would continue to operate just like in the TV series Jericho.

      Cyber attack can hurt the country’s infrastructure IF the attack is by someone that knows what they are doing. The regular terrorists could not likely do much, but a well financed think tank of computer hackers from a country with the money behind it could do much destruction. Everyone talks about China of course, but I have always wondered about some of these really wealthy oil producing nations that hate the U.S. paying some Russians to flatten the U.S. grid or other targets. A lot of money can purchase just about anything you want, and there is a lot of brilliant Russians looking to make some serious bucks. I have thought much about this also in regards to biological warfare about hard up scientists from the ex-USSR.

Watch the Mid Atlantic Ridge, especially the area around the Reykjanes Ridge area, and the Ridge directly east of the Caribbean. These two areas if they start to get lots of swarms indicates the New Madrid is undergoing a lot of dangerous stress.

      Let me explain how I knew that the Santa Cruz Islands area was going to get hit with a very large earthquake which I warned about last week, please check the posts for verification. The earthquakes kept getting bigger, the fault was in the process of failure, it was too obvious. When this happens with other faults such as the Cascadia fault, you can tell. The fault partially breaks, then relocks, only to finally fail. I have to admit that I thought it would be at least 12 hours after this 6.3. See how well this system of predictions works.

          @ JoeRepublic. USGS says Santa Cruz Islands, and this was what I was going by for all the foreshocks that indicated this fault was in the process of failing. From all the precursor quakes on the plate boundaries, it was too obvious that something very large was coming. There are still those areas that are very vulnerable that I mentioned above. The planet has done one of two things now. A. it has exhaled and the next cycle will be awhile before the next big one. B. this has added stress to the entire plate system, which will be shown in the coming hours and days from the those boundaries. There should be some indications of this within 3-4 days, maybe sooner.

          I would definitely be watching the west coast now because many of these previous polar earthquakes that happened years ago, lead to earthquakes in these regions. There was 4 earthquakes that occurred at around 128 degrees west after the same areas were hit years ago that were recently hit. No coincidence here, the Pacific Northwest and even California still are at risk. How much will be determined by the future quake activity.

I’ve read in different papers that China has penetrated our Cyberspace and has access to some important U.S. government websites. Also, if they get to websites of our infrastructure–power grids, for example, they could basically shut our country down. Was wondering, while out walking, if perhaps this is why they seem to have Obama by the “private parts”… they say, “disarm the American people!” and he obeys… or maybe is just because of the money we owe them.

      I’ve noticed there’re many earthquakes around the globe too.

      Japan’s big damage on 3.11.11 was not caused by earthquake, but mainly by the tsunami.

      The newest theory is that it was caused by small nukes or bombs that were placed on the ocean floor and set off.

        @ JustOneGuy and Facebook. Last week I discussed the Fiji plate and the way it was interacting with the Pacific plate and the Australian plate. On previous posts I said that the earthquake activity aroound the Santa Cruz Islands was alarming, also because this region had the classic signatures from ALL the plate boundary earthquake recently. It had been hit before after these same places had earthquakes and was going to be again. The real concern now is the Pacific plate.

        These previous areas, the Balleny Islands, South Sandwich Islands, Mid Atlantic Ridge, up towards Iceland, all had previous earthquake activity that lead to moderate to major earthquakes around 128 degrees west. This is of course the Juan de Fuca plate. So these areas that we have been seeing on these plate boundaries have lead to Pacific Northwest earthquakes before. Does this mean this time is the time when Seattle and Portland become Haiti like? Not sure yet. You start to get some true swarms on the western side of the Juna de Fuca plate and I would say yes. OR a really good size earthquake to the south of the plate. The San Andreas could set off the Cascadia fault and the Cascadia fault could set off the San Andreas. The two faults are connected.

        You can expect a 7 aftershock to the 8.0, and 10 six pointers, and 100 5 pointers. I am still kind of shellshocked about how fast I was typing to get that forecast out and then it was posted at 3 minutes past the hour, then 9 minutes later the 8.0 struck. That is something that kind of freaks you out. It didn’t surprise me at all as I was talking about this on Feb.1 as being the area that if these earthquakes continued like this, that something very large was coming. 9 minutes later is pretty strange though after I sent the comments.

        It does show that these precursor quakes indicate the areas that are going to get hit by large future earthquakes. The plates have not moved that much in centuries and much less in the decades before. You can narrow it down reasonably where the next big one is going to hit. Wish it was down to a 50 mile radius, working on that one will require much more work. Just watch the above locations given on the 7:03 PM comment, as these places are not out of the woods yet.

        @ Emily. I so much hope that someone around this area of which tsunamis have already hit, saw this warning that their area was primed for a very big earthquake, and was aware of this. It was too apparent what was happening here, the fault just kept relocking itself until finally it totally collapsed. This could happen in the Pacific northwest, or even the San Andreas. These earthquakes on plate boundaries are the foreshocks that show what is coming later. The more widespread these earthquakes are, the larger the earthquake is coming in the future. This is why I said on a previous post that is was much more likely to have a 7.5+ than a 6.5-7.4, because of all the different locations of earthquakes all over the planet.

        Will continue to watch. You and others should watch for any future swarming activity on the Juan de Fuca plate’s western flanks, this means the plate is likely ready to go. As I mentioned above with regards to the New Madrid to watch the Mid Atlantic Ridge for swarming quakes, at about 57 degrees north or about 17 degrees north. Emily, I have to admit it, I am still a little freaked out that this 8.0 happened 9 minutes after I posted that comment at 7:03 PM.

The initial precursor Santa Cruz tremor occurred as a 6+ at approx 11 minutes after the onset of vertical rise of the solar flare, FWIW.

      SAVING SEEDS
      “If saving seeds, do you find it necessary to store them in an airtight container for better preservation?”
      No, I do not save seeds in airtight containers. The seeds are picked for saving when fully mature, graded, dried by natural convection in a wire basket, then stored in paper bags or envelopes marked with variety, year and month harvested, etc.
      Larger seeds, such as beans, are stored in canning jars with used, ill-fitting lids, and stored in a warm, dark room. The reason for this latter method is for determining the quantity to be kept for planting: a pint of both green bean and pinto bean seeds, and at least a quart of each fava variety — large (Aquadulce Claudia) and small (Banner). Some large seeded varieties of brassicas (such as chard) are also kept in pint jars.
      Don’t forget that God intended that seeds were to be kept in an open atmosphere for storage, so they could go through natural stages needed to germinate properly. That means sometimes we must fool the seeds to make them think they have gone through an entire winter in hibernation, if we intend to plant them again in weeks or months of harvest. Chard seed, for example, can be harvested in early fall, then planted again about the middle of September (in some climates) for an all-winter green. But for the best germination results when planting again soon after harvest, I freeze the seeds for a week prior to planting, which hastens the natural cycle and germination is normal.

      GARDENING IN THE NEW MILLENNIUM

      The virtual world wide drought conditions now unfolding will mean mass starvation, famine on a Biblical scale, so growing your own food may be vital to survival. This also means you will have to protect your crops from predation by those who would rather steal your food than grow their own. Drought will mean that many of the dependable crops for your area can no longer be easily grown, so alternate crops like drought tolerant amaranth and millet will be life savers, literally. A tremendous advantage to amaranth (“Love Lies Bleeding”) and millet is that very few people will recognize them as food crops!

      The easiest to grow, starchy vegetable is the Jerusalem Artichoke. This vigorous relative of sunflower, tobacco, tomato, and potato is a member of the Nightshade family. It is raised to produce eatable roots. It is started from root cuttings, like potatoes, and forms tubers in the fall.
      Your first harvest can begin after the tops die back for winter. Dig in spots scattered throughout the bed. The tubers are sort of knobby and skinless, and you will recognize them as being like what you planted. They keep best right in the ground, and can be dug anytime it is not frozen. To get your bed established, you may need a thin layer of mulch over the whole area for the first year or two. Soon the tops will provide that by themselves. For a large harvest, you should be feeding the soil by adding some composted manure or fertilizer in the spring. For a winter harvest, protect a strip in the bed from freezing by adding a thick layer of mulch. Move the strip each year so that the roots will fill back in.
      Jerusalem Artichokes can survive with no attention for many years, awaiting your need to eat them. That makes it ideal for establishing a bed at your summer cabin or retreat location. I will have to be honest, I like potatoes better. But any food that grows in permanent beds, requiring little care, is very good to have around the homestead. Native Americans grew Jerusalem Artichokes widely in areas where there is enough rainfall for corn to be grown.
      The reason Jerusalem Artichokes got the nickname of poor man’s potatoes is they can be harvested with little planning and work. I think real prosperity always comes from good planning and hard work. |

Las tyr I put in a drip system tied in to a rain harvesting system and man it kicked ass until the hail storm took almost everything out. People that have not started gardening are going to be SOL hybrids are very easy to grow but heirlooms take some time to figure out. I would suggest that newbies get so of both. Just to make sure you get a harvest. This yr I planted wheat in all the beds I’ll let it grow but not go to head, come spring I’l be hand turning it into the beds no tilling I have my fishing bait in there as well..

            This will be our second year with the asparagus but look forward to having it on a yearly basis. Our space is limited so we have a very small bed, 8 plants in total, but hopefully they will fill in the entire area we allotted for them. I don’t know if the ‘spread’ on their own or if they need to be propagated though. I am thinking the later unless they go to seed. But then I think there are male and female plants so not sure if they will ever produce seed as I think they are all female.

        @ JustOneGuy. The New Madrid fault is a strange fault in that it should be connected to the Gulf Of Mexico, as this area is actually fused together and was once extremely tectonic like Japan. If the glacial sediment and of course other runoff did not occur, the New Madrid would kind of resemble the Gulf of California. It is very peculiar as kimintn mentioned that there is a mass New Madrid drill and pale rider mentioned the helicorder near St. Louis that went nuts. This could be because the New Madrid and all faults are connected to each other and that 8.0 rung the whole planet.

        I am sure that your reading of the Sun’s energy has a bearing on the planet to some degree, this I am positive of. I just can’t believe how scientists can know about what is happening with the Cascadia, New Madrid and even the San Andreas and not say something. I have the ability to work for the USGS, but I would have to lose a piece of my conscience to be able to sit back with advanced knowledge of a cataclysm coming and not try to warn people. If I knew of something that could kill hundreds of thousands or millions and not say something, I mean that would be awful.

        As near as I can tell the earthquake occurred on the northwestern portion of the Fiji plate’s subduction zone. Normally any transform fault does not produce much of a tsunami because it is horizontal movement. The up thrust is what generates the tsunamis in these subduction zones. There were some tsunamis from this, that range a few feet high. The quake was at about 18 miles deep and if it had been really shallow like a couple of miles deep it would have been much bigger. Still normally a 8.0 generates about a 5-10 footer, so either the reports have not come in yet, or there may have been a little more side to side motion as the transform fault is nearby to this to the east.

        Now I am waiting for so more plate boundary quakes to see where the energy is now coming from and where the plates are getting ready for the next mass movement. I don’t like that about the New Madrid, so keep an eye out on the Mid Atlantic Ridge at about 54-60 degrees north and about 14-20 degrees north for lots of swarming quakes. You see this and it is time to hunker down around the New Madrid. This would be a fairly sure sign of some stress building up.

          that we once discussed the “Eta C.” possibility? Somesuch perhaps, but
          if anyone knew about it I am positive that it would be ‘clamped’….
          so there’s no room to ‘run’ there so to speak. That leaves terrestrial
          or Human activity on which to evaluate the problem. I mentioned a
          few days ago that I was going to explain something relative to a
          comment that I had made in a previouus forum – think here – as it
          happens I’m waiting for ‘others’ to return a response on a specific
          query before ‘outing’ that particular thing…patience a bit more
          please. Finally, we are left with the siesmic issue, your clear field
          of endeavor. In watching the activity tonight there, I am astonished
          at it’s continuous tempo and frankly the magnitude of the constituent
          events, all. I ASK you; is this normal anywhere in your memory? I had
          posted in several times today, most of which actuually didn’t make it
          ‘cross the net. One question I asked in those earlier – of you – was,
          “Is there ANY possibility that what we’re seeing now respresents
          something not ordinary, something ‘else’ by way of what we’ve seen
          thus far?” Dwell on it at your leisure…..”What is it here that
          we are missing?” Enough for one eve Friend, as always, ….

            @ lastmanstanding. The 5 foot tsunami shows that this was a subduction fault that went off. The strike slip 8.6/8.7 mega quake last year produced only a 2 foot tsunami. Normally a 8.0 will produce a 5-10 foot tsunami all depending on how deep it was. The Fiji fault does have a section of it that does move from side to side.

          I read it a few months ago and it was very informative. The geologist who wrote the book thought that the New Madrid originated when Pangeia tryed to split the North American continent along that line but failed. If it had suceeded, I suppose the East Coast would be along the Mississippi. That is the reason it doesn’t behave like most other faults.

      Asparagus is an ideal crop to grow because it is harvested after the early wild greens, but before the early spinach and lettuce are ready in the garden.

      Instead of eating stored vegetables during this time, you can be eating fresh. It is also grown in a permanent bed, and only needs attention at certain times of the year, so it is ideal to establish at a remote retreat.
      You need a sunny spot, frequently moist soil in the Springtime, but no flooding or standing water. Partway down a slope from a spring or stream would be ideal for a “wild” bed. It doesn’t need any more water than a salad garden, so water it like that where you live.

      To plant, dig a hole or trench, and fill the bottom with a few inches of rich sandy loam or compost. Spread out the roots, and cover with a couple more inches of good light soil. As the shoots come up, add more layers until you end up with a mound over the plants and shoots coming through. The deeper you plant it, the longer it will be before the bed comes into production, but the longer the bed will last. Most people choose 8 to 16 inches below the surrounding ground level.

        @ WINNING! You want to win money at betting? One of the most difficult things to do is to remove all bias from the equation. It seems like no matter what I did with football games I always over analyzed it, one team could not possibly beat the spread for example. One of the most difficult ways of betting is the over and under, but the least controlled by wanting to see a favorite team or a team you can’t stand win, lose and bet the spread. For example don’t even look and the over and under points they offer, make up your own mind beforehand to how many points you feel will be scored by both teams. Few people thought the Ravens and 49er’s were going to score 65 points together, as this easily beat the over points. Come up with a score and go with that, then compare it to the over and under.

        Now to earthquakes. Knowing when an earthquake is going to strike can save your life or others that are important to you in a danger zone. Every single place on this planet has the potential for mass ground moment, even place like Florida. The state of Florida will be in deep troble for example when the Caribbean plate goes off on the eastern portion of it, and the shallow waters tend to magnify the size of tsunamis a lot. Florida does have evidence of past tsunamis that have occurred as recently as the 15th. century. An earthquake in the wrong place can trigger regional or nationwide martial law state if it is bad enough. IF the New Madrid breaks like 1812 it would easily be bad enough for several states and the natural gas reserves, possibly the nuclear reactors in the region. California has the 8th largest economy in the world, when the San Andreas breaks this will have massive economic results on the country. Earthquakes in the wrong place are extremely important to know about.

      How I Reached My Breaking Point

      http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-02-05/guest-post-how-i-reached-my-breaking-point-ten-years-ago

      “It all unraveled so quickly, and I soon realized that I was not living in a free country… that all the loud, bombastic nonsense and pledges of allegiance were illusions masking modern day serfdom.

      The subsequent ten years have only reinforced this trend. The political and banking elite have given us more war, inflation, and epic financial crises. They’ve turned Western civilization into a giant police state. And they’ve managed to brainwash the great masses so effectively that the people are crying out for more.”

      “Quite simply, you don’t put all of your eggs in one basket. History shows that when governments enter a period of terminal decline, they try to control EVERYTHING– wages, prices, borders, money supply, foreign exchange, private property, etc.

      Of course, these tactics never work and only hasten the decline, as everyone from Emperor Diocletian of ancient Rome to Argentina’s modern day President Cristina Fernandez [will] have learned.”

      have you reached your breaking point yet ?
      its all coming unraveled isn’t it?

      What if the cyber-war is not declared, the ground fails to thunder under your feet, the tsunami does not show up at the appointed time and when it does, it is a thin crest of iridescent foam at your feet. The killer asteroid whizzes by vectored in by Earth’s gravity and streaks hellfire across the morning sky, then heads out into space never to be seen again. The power goes out and as you huddle in th dark there is a knock at the door, someone from the tree-trimming crew apologizes and says it should be restored in an hour. What if both sides of the gun control issue realize in secret that they are in a losing battle, the status quo shall be maintained, and so they delight in stirring the tides and watching the waves of pro and anti gun sentiment crash against one another, for entertainment. What if the ‘worst flu yet’ branches out and dissipates according to the familiar ratio of genetic resistance in the population, what if ebola stays in the bats and bird-flu stays in the birds and incandescent light bulbs are still available if you know where to look. What if the well stocked underground survival shelter acquired mildew and spiders and old lawnmowers and the possessions of children gone to college. What if the gathered arms of patriot militias go into cardboard boxes, the hard disks containing the precious and important data of smart and active Internet soul lays in a dusty corner to be sold by the ex-wife at a garage sale, forgotten.

      What if the shit does not hit the fan because the fan is already completely embedded in it struggling slowly, and we were always imagining that it would arrive in one big clump.

      Beware the vicissitudes of life! Those little events that fly past you while you are concentrating on the big picture. No natural or man-made disaster has the power to erode the landscape and change things, as those little things that go on around you.

      Don’t let life pass you by.

      Switching gears here I have a question.

      Anyone have experience or knowledge regarding the first aid item Quick Clot? I don’t clot too well because of blood thinning heart medication. Sulfa powder works wonders for a shaving nick but I used up the last of it. I thought Quick Clot might be useful to keep around.

        @Kevin2
        I had a conversation with two ER physicians a few days ago. One of them teaches survival classes at the range. They both discouraged using Quick Clot unless it is very unlikely that you can get to a trauma center. They recommended applying pressure and keeping the wound moist. Evidently they have a very difficult time cleaning wounds that are full of Quick Clot.

        I don’t know that I’d use it for a shaving nick but yes it’ll clot blood. The first recipes generated a little too much heat and could actually burn the skin depending on quantities of blood and powder but the second gen stuff which is what you’d have now is fine for that. The most common form is a impregnated gauze that you stuff into a wound to get it clotted up while you wait for real treatment.

      Lots of rants but having worked for a top 25 company in their IT department (over 45M customers) I know exactly about this. A few quarters back there was a concerted effort against government related financial instritutions and private ones. Where I was, it caused outages for almost two weeks. The systems were overloaded. buggy software written internally and from vendors like IBM and F5 failed under load. Heck, in late 90′s I worked at a small company which was also under organized cracker attack. AT that time they were after passwords since most people reuse their passwords. In this most recent time, probably also trying to break the systems as security measures and holes/doors open when servers are put under load. This time may have also been a political statement. Its very interesting to read about the “hostage” bribes the offshore gambling sites were paying due to loading attacks a few years back. Eventually one casino/site had enough and just purchased a bigger and bigger pipe until the hackers could not overload them.
      So, there probably will not a be a “its all down” but there very, very probably will be a “company X is offline for hours, days). Typical disaster planning to have a backup method for customers. E.g. if site is down they can walk into office. Or phone call.
      Its widely known that USA company’s have put military access back doors on their printers, oeprating systems, and otherwise.
      The BIG RISK here is that Chinese companies have done the same. E.g. what if all Apple phones started suddenly turned on an alternative payment processor and cut Apple out of the 30% revenue. :-)

      This is just another brick in the wall of deception that is being pushed on us
      The government will shut it all down, yell martial law and start collecting firearms and detaining anyone who they deem a threat of any sort all in the name of public safety.
