      this right here is one of my primary reasons for getting the hell out of major cities.

      these psychopaths are eventually going to push the button.

      • durango kidd says:

        Total bullshit Dave. BRIC’s??? LMAO!!! Brazil, India, and China have no skin is this game. They can sit on the sidelines and watch Russia, Europe, and the USA destroy themselves.

        No reason to participate in your War Game. :-)

        • Sinner says:

          China and Russia have a military mutual aid treaty. Research the SCO Durango. I admire your truth telling and taking unpopular stances, but India and Russia also have many economic/military ties too.

          • durango kidd says:

            Sinner: A lot of good that mutual military aid treaty will do Russia once China decides its time to colonize Siberia for its vast mineral wealth and WATER. Can you say, “Barbarossa”?

            China is running out of CLEAN water too! :-(

            • Be informed says:

              I have long thought that the estimation of Chinese nukes being in the low hundreds range is THE most deceptive numbers ever given by Jane’s and other so called military “experts”. To think that China has not stockpiled thousands of nukes is beyond naive. We are not given accurate anything to what the sides process, including NEW Star Wars type pioneer weapons.

              Anyone can say that nuclear war is not possible based on the sanity of people in charge, if that is what you can call it. However one just has to look at someone that goes postal to see just how fragile the human mind is, along with rational and logic. Fear can do anything to anyone and push the most sensible person over the edge to doing something nuts. These so called leaders are if anything more unstable than the regular citizen and would do anything to stay in power. When fear becomes unmanagable panic, anything and everything goes.

              it has to be remembered that these nuclear weapons are armed and ready to be used. They are on a hair trigger. The only thing that prevents one side from launching at the other is the fear of mutual assured destruction or MAD. The issue is that this fear of MAD has been replaced with the notion that one side can take out the other before they can destroy our side. The “leaders” know that conventional weapons WILL become nuclear because when ANYONE is in a life or death fight you use ANYTHING you have to avoid being killed. Any prepper/survivalist will tell you that when faced with dying, they will try to safe themselves with anything they have.

              This is the whole equation about nuclear weapons. Both sides now regard these weapons as just that, weapons to safeguard their survival. This is why the thought of nuclear war is now more possible, if not very probable than anytime in the nuclear history of the past 69 years.

              • durango kidd says:

                BI: The US “gave” China the plans for the L-88 warhead so that they would have neutron bomb capability, reducing the likelihood of fallout to the USA if China went to war with either India or Russia, or both.

                This a much more rational possibility for China than war with the Big Kid on the block. I expect a skirmish in Southeast Asia and the South China sea so that China can give real world training to its armed forces.

                It will be localized and of short duration. :-(

                  “Yes, our leaders may be working to peacefully resolve this crisis”

                  Uh, Dave, have you lost your mind? Do you need to be reminded that obullshit has done EVERYTHING IN HIS PUNY LITTLE POWER TO GET US INTO A WAR?

                  Syria didn’t work out…Iran and North Korea didn’t bite, and so far, Russia has put up with obullshit pulling shit in Ukraine, then blatantly blaming Russia…Not to mention the IS crisis that we now know is CIA-MADE.

                  How the hell can anyone say that our leaders may be working to peacefully resolve this crisis, with a straight face? Obullshit has slung mud in Putin’s face for months now. Demanded that Russia let their own get killed without lifting a finger, or my favorite—Russia was expected to support the illegal puppets in Kyiv by squashing their own people…Give it a break already.

                  Russia has stopped at least three confrontations from going into full-on WWIII, so far…NAME ONE THING OBULLSHIT HAS DONE TO AVOID A WAR?

                • John Q. Public says:

                  Gilad Atzmon, the Jewish jazz saxophonist, says:

                  “… If Israel defines itself as the Jewish State, we should accept its own definition … America is not the first or second super power to be brought down by Jewish power. It is just the latest in a long line … I think that a ‘goyim defense league’ is a necessary development. I have come to believe that resistance to Jewish politics and power is the only thing that can save world peace as well as the Jews. The suppression of anti-Jewish feelings by means of ‘political correctness’ has led, on the one hand, to Jewish impunity, and, on the other, to explosive and violent resentment toward Jews. The natural opposition toward Jewish politics and supremacist attitudes should never have been suppressed…. ”

                  The Large Sucking Sound!!! The US Patent is the Chinese Blue Print. Yeah Post all the patents on-line for all the world to see. When there are Billions to be made why let a US Patent stop them. In fact how about US Corporations also send the tool and machinery to china and even train them and send them the schematics of every US Patent so Walmart can sell it back to the US. That’s what has happened over the last 30 years. Brilliant Strategy Wall Street and the US Government. Now What. 47.5 Million Americans now on Food Stamps which is about 20% of all US Households of food assistance, and the real Unemployment rate in the US is about 25%.

                • JohnFornaro says:

                  ” … obullshit has done EVERYTHING IN HIS PUNY LITTLE POWER TO GET US INTO A WAR?”

                  I agree that that Mr. Obama forced Mr. Bush to get us entwined in an elective war in Iraq. Which we lost.

                  Oh wait.

                • sixpack says:

                  JQP, here’s a link some people might be interested in. The percentage of population that is jewush in the U.S., state by state.

                  ht tp://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/US-Israel/usjewpop.html

                  Just notice where the higher percentages are, and think about the over-all laws in that state. Then think about the over-all economy of the state…you might be surprised, but I don’t think so.

                • JohnFornaro says:

                  Excellent to see the thumbs down on my post about who actually started the Iraq was. Truth hurts. Anyhow, No hard feelings to anybody. And here’s proof:

                  Two little boys are going to the hospital the next day for operations. Theirs will be first on the schedule. The older boy leans over and asks,

                  “What are you having done?”

                  The second boy says, “I’m getting my tonsils out, and I’m afraid.”

                  The first boy says, “You’ve got nothing to worry about. I had that done when I was four. They put you to sleep, and when you wake up, they give you lots of Jell-O and ice cream. It’s a breeze.”

                  The second boy then asks, “What are you going in for?”

                  The first boy says, “Circumcision.”

                  “Whoa!” the smaller boy replies, “Good luck, buddy. I had that done when I was born. Couldn’t walk for a year.”

                @ Be Informed,

                “I have long thought that the estimation of Chinese nukes being in the low hundreds range is THE most deceptive numbers ever given by Jane’s and other so called military “experts””

                ‘Acutely correct’ I’m afriad; one of the easte-coast university’s sponora professor whoi term-by-term uses his graduate staff to perorm exhaustive analysis o Chinese nuclear capabilities. You’ll have to give me a short while to summmoon p the rlevant names and details, however, that groups conclusions were beyond simply ‘startling’ IF memory here serves, thier estinate o Chinese stategic capbility (warnead size, number of) was fnally estimated form transcribed documents/training manuals of the Peoples 2nd Rocker Corps(?0 to be in excess o the SUM of all strat-bucs possesed by BOTH Rusiia and the SS.

                Bear in mind that China has NEVER been signatory to ANY SALT/START treaty limitationbs and has repeatdly and quite disengenuously evaded any qwustions as to thier nuclear capacity uniformly…always, OFFICIALLY, seemingly as a matter of policy…

                Mr hodges sem to have a few other mall details askew as well )though on balance I won’t oibject to his premise/conclusion to excesss) among them , the staement that “, the USA and her allies are matched by their BRIC counterparts.” which is a patently false statement of the situation; China’s ‘nuclear Navy’ is practically non-existent…as is thier carrier capacity. Russia as one time was a formidable adverary in this venue but in the time since ‘perstroyka’ and ‘glasnost’ thier nuclear submaribe fleet has decayed exponentially, though they are attempting to implelemnt it’s renewal currently. However any such effort would take TIME and quite a bit of it..

                No other BRICS nation has any long-range potential such-like as the US submarine capbility, be assured. Additionally, inb thre field at hand ofg which I speak it simply doesn’t matter how MANY nuclear subs one has; what matters is HOW QUIET they are…a noisy sub is located and ‘killed’with extreme rapidity…and prejudice as well.

                What here troubles me mot is Mr Hodges ASSERTION that ‘our only hope lies in a pre-emptive first strike” dangerous notion – Sir – for the obvious reason. What is delineated above in my response relating our submarine capavility DOES change the equation no small bit and by that and aa well the tated US policy of NEVER contemplating a pre-emptive ‘first’ then your analysis may need further polihing.

                No, what is the true Ragnarok is something else, something actaully worse. I any pair of sophistecated comnbatants engage today milirtarily then the various nuclear facilities within thier repsctive country’s will become impaired – likely – sufficiently so to effect a ‘release’. THAT will spread downwind therefrom – in ANY direction determined by Mother Nature – and the result will likely be a enleagement of the the number of involved parties. thid will escalate till the entire world is involved; No goovernment can NOT do so as it’s populace is randonmly irradiated. Thi WILL get out of hamd VERY quickly indeed with a high pronanility that the entire Northen Hemisphere will end up ‘sterilized’ from a high latitude down to and beyond the equator.

                IF that were to happen – though the Northern and Southern Hemispere’s are on different, mostly independent ciculation pattern it would STILL be the case that (over time) a large portion of that area would alo be similarly ‘sterilized’

                The use of the word ‘sterilized’ twice above means this; those radio-isotopes released in THOSE quntities from facilies that had went catastrophically ‘China Syndrome’ post-deisel loss, post-personel/operator loss (after all, none walks into an irradiated area WILLINGLY) would be broadly scattered into the upper atmosphere quite high; think Fukishima was BAD…not quite Folks…it GETS much WORE WOSRE, believe it would be ubstantially of adifferent character than we have heretofor seen; expect a period of no less than 1100 YEARS until ‘safe conditions would return witjhinthe eqatorial regions and mid-latitudes.

                The selection made by Hyman Rickover that compelled the Industry to adopt our standard PWR-type reactor (for the purpose of Plutonium generation) was nothing short o a ‘deal made with the DEVIL’ almost literally. ANY event which disturbs that ‘Sleeping Giant’ ends humanity, virtually completely….’civilization’ UTTERLY.

                The End will be unpleasant – for most of Humanity – to say the least. In all coniderations of a potential BOL location research the prevailing and seaonal local/global air currents and ability of the environemnt to PURGE itself (rain). Hmm, I suppose that is enough for one eve…Dwelll on it.

                NOTE: MAY BE TYPO’S…excessively long…not proof-reading due to same; Excuse M’oi?

                  SHE-it…awful typing,

                  DK it’s the W-87…the rest of your analysi is correct, carry on

                  Uh, incidentally, one more ‘slight’ addition to the preceding…

                  Take a look sometime at the NMVER of ‘classified’ vs ‘unclassified’ STS (shuttle) missions….way more than neccessary to simply maintain “Keyhole” inegrity. That said, it is a simple matter to mouut a small tac-nuc onto a multi-hindred pound aluminum cylinder and attach a remote steering package, why? Weelllll, when you detonate asmall itty-bitty teensy-weensy NUC on the end off a metal cylinder it produces the MOST AMAZING burst of coherent x-ray radiation…an ‘X-Laser’…the perfect ‘sniper rifle/scalpel’ imagineable for shooting ‘things’ out of orbit…say, oh, ballistic missles?

                  Dave, Mac, All,

                  Great article! Personally, I do not expect The Chinese to risk everything for the Russians even if they could afford to lose a couple hundred million of its population. Technological superiority is an Ace up the sleeve that is not as known a quantity as many think but some have eluded to in the comments. Certainly, should give some hesitation to to those planning the destruction of humankind. China has not had kings or emperors for nearly a century and I do not see them returning to that form of government. India and China have fought wars against each other and are unlikely to join together in an endeavor to destroy the West. China just recently made some incursions into Indian territory which was not appreciated by India. Economic cooperation is not the same as military joint ventures. BRIC is an interesting phenomenon but it is too early to equate it with a NATO type organization. The whole article is built on an unlikely scenario pitting NATO against BRIC. The recent emergence of a Caliphate could bring about a mighty foe who could turn into”the Kings of the East” referred to in the ancient prophesies.

                  If it’s not worth correcting typos, it’s probably not worth reading. China has to have a good deal more nukes than “Jane’s” has any idea of.

              • Libertarianmajority says:

                Calm abandonment of cities (and even the county of a big city) and abandonment of the entire “store-bought” economy is NOW in order. At the VERY LEAST, having a relatively fast but NON-MOTORIZED and self-sufficient course for evacuation at the least appearance of crisis (basically NOW) is most prudent–before it becomes a battle with martial law to defend oneself and one’s loved ones from authoritarian (including “Constitutional Republic”) attempts to segregate and concentrate everyone in (slave or murder) camps intended to “restore order” (to impose slavery of the many for the prosperity of the few). As for “bug-out bags”, only a simple, small, lightweight and durable set of basic HAND tools will give one a good running start and, if fortunate to keep them, can serve for one’s survival by bushcrafting what one needs to survive without civilization. Having the bushcraft skills to make one’s own implements from scratch as well as knowing what Nature provides for one’s OWN and one’s loved ones’ survival (NOT for any kind of capitalism) is a huge plus. There’s NO need, nor is it strategic, to attack others as if they’re all the enemy (and making them such by doing so!) BUT, don’t be close enough to strangers for them to have an advantage over you. Pass peaceably but guardedly like ships in the night–signalling intentions to avoid offense and to detect ill intent. True generosity, hospitality and courtesy are age-old virtues, even, and actually more so, in lawless times such as in the past BUT, beware! The New (and permanent) Dark Ages will be at hand! Self-armored defense is imperative for the individual liberty and therefore, the survival of everyone!

                • Night Breaker says:

                  LM,
                  Bushcraft skills will be essential to Surviving what is to come , there’re is no way you can carry everything foe long duration and be agility mobile at the same time . In the military we called this field craft . your best bet is to ONLY carry the essentials for Water , Shelter , fire, and Sustenance
                  And have the knowledge to reprovision without modern resupply capabilities ( I.E. forage to augment your food supply) .
                  A good basic kit .

                  Water:
                  .02 micron filter with a way to boil it to destroy viruses , get the add on charcoal filter for chemical removal , Katadyne pocket filter , canteen cup with stove and a metal canteen . Alternate SS water bottle with nesting cup and bottle stove ( canteen store has some really neat stuff.) coffe filters and rubber bands for creating a pre filter that makes the filter last Longer . I use a heavy cover titanium canteen system.

                  Shelter: climant dependant , tarp ( bushcraft usa MEST or max velocity thermal tarp ) with assorted anchoring systems ( niteeze figure 9 connectors ) carribenners and TI stakes . alternate hammock .
                  Jungle bag or MSS patrol bag for summer with sea to summit cool max adapter with insect shield
                  Winter :

                  MSS SYSTEM with thermolie REACTOR liner , tarp ( kifaru paratarp with stove) or MEST with TI goat stove ( light weight system can be used with the patrol bag and bivy with liner for less weight .travel light freeze at night. )

                  Fire:
                  at least three ways , fire steel rod ( light my fire steel) blast match, NATO matches , tinder , solar fire starter etc. have an alternate covert source for boiling water (esbit pocket stove) learn and practice fire making BEFORE an emergency.

                  FOOD:
                  high density food , favorite mountain house freeze dried , augment with mylar bags of tuna , chicken, beef crumbles , spam slices, also they ( HORMEL ) make corned beef in Mylar bags .
                  Think light .

                  This is just the basics you can also add signaling , communication , etc to your preparedness pack , remember this pack is the LAST DITCH OPTION buggin in is preferred but if your life depends on it to leave THEN LEAVE. Live to fight another day .

                  Finally a pack to put it all in a 40 liter pack is probably the most useful size that most can handle for long term trekking . Keep the weight below 40 lbs , ONLY TAKE WHAT YOU NEED .
                  Your heaviest items will be water and AMMO distribute it evenly over your person , keep on your person at all times ( AFTER SHTF WROL ONLY) your side arm , combat knive , canteen and Personel survival kit . I prefer a S&W model 27 in .357 for long term durability , along with my trusty Randal number 1 , I carry 12 rounds of last ditch ammo on my belt in 2 desantis cartride holders on my belt at all times this never leaves my emergency belt . Along a best glide military scout survival kit In a belt holder. What you carry for defense is dependant on what the conditions are where you live will dictate what is allowable depending on circumstances . General breakdown where authorities are still functional refugee situation my side arms will be buried in my sleep system no long arms, and be ready to bolt on a moments notice into cover to avoid the bus to the fema camp. Full out collapse full battle rattle with associated acessories.
                  Hint a well made .22 revolver(S&W 617 , 10 Rounder !) for long term bug out is an asset , save your larger caliber for personal defense .

                  My preferred pack KIFARU molle express with an E&E pack all the essentials are stored in the E&E .

                  Total load with all 35 LBS with 50 rounds .357 , 200 rds .22 . 2 liters water
                  Bushcraft skills learned weight = 0 lbs.

                  IMPROVISE ADAPT OVERCOME .

                  YOUR MIND IS YOU BEST WEAPON
                  THAT WEAPON IS YOU

                  RESIST NO MATTER WHAT ANYWAY YOU CAN

                  PEOPLE ARE TRAINING EVERY DAY TO KILL YOU WHAT ARE YOU DOING TODAY

                Hello BI

                Sorry I told Brave heart I had taken a break from things for awhile. I have red post occasionally but stopped watching any news and just needed a break. Hope you have been great. As usual your post are intelligent, spot on, and well written.

                I was in the service in a light infantry division from 1986 to 1992. For the people on here that are young this was during the cold war with the old Soviet Union. We were trained in tactics against Russia. They were the enemy. Light infantry means we would fight in squad and platoon size elements normally behind the lines. Guerilla warfare tactics. I don’t know if the Russians have changed there command and control techniques and I don’t know how close they are to us in technology now. If things are still similar then the thought that we could not win a prolonged ground war is flawed. This is why.
                The Russian units did not have a chain of command. The officers were it. If you took out the officers then no one else knew how to command. Secondly most of there equipment was very outdated. Even though they outnumbered us 4 to 1 it did not mean much. Take a look at what was said about Iraq. The media talked about how large there army was and we absolutely kicked there behinds in a few days. If China gets involved then they can literally send waves of men at us. This happened before in Korea where the Chinese were actually climbing over there own dead to get to us. This would be a problem but they are similar to the Russians if things are still the same.
                One other key factor is air power. We have them outnumbered and our technology is much better. That also greatly increases our odds in a ground war. The amount of men and equipment the plains would destroy is astronomical. I am 99 percent sure we would win a conventional war.

                That is exactly why we all better hope this does not happen. If China and Russia start to win then we will put a stop to it one way or the other. We cannot afford to lose because the country we know would come to an end. Guess what they feel the same I am sure. Therefore if this ever happens whoever is losing will break out Nukes to prevent there loss. It could only be tactical nukes but look at the danger that creates. Do we just sit back and allow all our men to be vaporized without retaliation.
                We all must hope and pray that we do not end up in a direct confrontation with Russia or China. If we do then God help us all.
                A side note. My son will be an officer in the army this fall. It appears he is going to be special ops. He is in charge of all army cadets at two universitys right now. He also has been through basic and Ait with the national guard. He knows how the enlisted man feels. He looks like he will go far and be the kind of officer I would have loved to have had in command.

                I worry about him so. God please don’t let this happen. I believe it is more likely now than ever before. Along with about 20 other major threats to peoples way of life in this world today.

                Please everyone don’t become impatient. Prep like your life depends on it because I think at this time in history it surely does.

                  Mike, I was in same time but on tanks in West Germany, for those that remember that country. Since then I have spent a lot of time in the old Soviet Union. Putin is nobody’s fool, and the flaws the Russians had in the cold war have been addressed to a large degree. For decades now Russia has been training with NATO and have worked hard on small unit tactics. The “shoot anything with two antennas (command vehicle) tactic” has been nullified. Their technology has also been improving. I do not think we will find them to be the softies they were back then. That’s my 2cents worth!

            • DK,

              One question. All of these theories and battle plans aside; does anyone in their right mind actually think Obama has the stones in his pants to confront Putin or China on the battlefield head-to-head???

              So far all Obama seems capable of doing is announcing new sanctions against Russia over the Ukraine…. in between golf games.

              Obama is not Commander-In-Chief material, he’s definitely not a military tactician, and he has no love for the military and vice versa. JFK may have stood up against the Russians, but Obama will fold like a napkin.

              • Winston Smith says:

                Oh, come on now! Why just today Obama issued a beige alert! (Yes….he really did wear a beige suit at a press conference.)

                As far as Kennedy goes, you also have to give a fair amount of credit to Nikita Khrushchev too. Unlike Stalin, he actually gave a damn about his people (read up on what he did in terms of housing, food, medicine, etc.) and didn’t want to see a nuclear exchange with the US. It’s the fact that neither side was led by a psychopath that kept the Cuban Missile Crisis from turning into WWIII. Sadly though, I doubt our current leadership is of the kind the world saw back then, making the future far more uncertain than it was at that time.

                Slightly off the subject, but it is interesting to note that one of the things Putin has been working on is rebuilding the civil defense system that was in place during Soviet times. The Soviets had the best civil defense system in the world (except for maybe Switzerland) and so many shelters still exist today. The old ones are being refitted and new ones are being built with enough capacity to house all of the citizens of Moscow. I believe this started in 2008, way before the idiot-in chief started trying to harass Russia. Sadly, the only US city that still has a viable shelter system is Huntsville, Alabama, and it is no match for what the Russians are doing. It just goes to show which government values it’s people’s lives more-and it ain’t the USA.

                • Interesting! I didn’t know Russia was rebuilding their civil defenses. It almost sounds like they’re expecting trouble. Here in the U.S. I think civil defense preparation is left entirely up to us, and even that is under attack. We may even be facing new laws banning body armor if lunatic fringe Californian politicians get their way.

                  I saw that beige suit he wore. All he need to complete the ensemble was a thick fur coat, a wide brimmed hat, and dark glasses, and he would look like the Pimp-In-Chief.

                • Night Breaker says:

                  Winston,
                  Back then the leaders were tempered by war surviving WW2 was not a distant memory for them it was just a mere 20 years after the war . Khrushchev was no angel but surviving Stalingrad may have temperd his enthusiasm for global war. The soviet union at that time did not have the missiles that US intelligence thought , they were liquid fueled and required considerable time to fuel . There we no missle gap in reality and a nuclear exchange would have gone badly for them they were a third world country recovering from a devistating war on their own soil.

                  Today it is a different story , with a much different outcome if comes to this.

                  Winston, I was only 5 years old when the Cuban Missile Crisis took place. I helped my older brother and Dad build a bomb shelter in our basement and we stockpiled it with supplies. That was my first contact with what we call prepping today. Thank God Khruschev backed down and WW3 was averted at that time.

                • Winston Smith says:

                  Hey… Pimpin’ ain’t easy! (and to be honest, requires a white suit, not a beige one)

                  Khrushchev was no saint, but I do have a fair amount of respect for him. Before him, Stalin was content to have the Soviet people live in “communal housing”, where each family was given a single room in an old house and several families shared a common bathroom and kitchen. His solution was to embark on a massive building program of standardized apartment blocks that the Russians call “Khrustovkas”. He also commissioned a “people’s car”, the ZAZ 965. While not a particularly good car, it was available in larger numbers for the common people, unlike the GAZ Victory or Volga (GAZ is an interesting story in itself and part of the reason 15,000 American were executed in Stalin’s purges), or even the Moskvitch (a Opel Kadet built from factory equipment taken as a war prize). Also, the limits of free expression were somewhat lifted, and the Gulag system was closed during the De-Stalinization period. Ultimately though, he was seen as too liberal by the party apparatchiks and was deposed in 1965. His replacement was Brezhnev, a party hardliner that basically did nothing to try and reform the system and it fell into stagnation. Brezhnev’s hand picked successor though was a reformer. Unfortunately, he was blocked by the party as being too radical. His name? Mikhail Gorbachev. Two other men would assume the leadership role and die in office before he was finally put in charge. (and yes… Soviet history is one of my interests.)

                  Anyhow, as far as backing down goes, BOTH leaders backed down. Kennedy got the missiles taken out of Cuba and Khrushchev got the missiles taken out of Turkey. Both leaders had a way to save face and look like they won. Luckily for the world, behind all the sabre rattling that went on back then, neither side really wished for all out war with the other. Both were afraid that the other would launch first and neither really wanted to make the first move.

                Who’s in charge of these supposed BRIC vs US & Allies nations currently makes me think Daves’ scenario is way off the mark. Putin may have the stones if pushed, Obama is not a first strike button pusher. Saying this country will capitulate and this country will…. no, not with some of the current “world leaders”. And even if this nuclear scenario plays out, there are so many other allied nations, true, with little to no nuclear capability and smaller standing armies, but would still have major roles to play and major impacts in many battlefields.
                I just pray Dave is wrong for the simple fact that despite how f*&ked up sssh&t is now.. he is right about how bad it could be.

                • I pray Dave is wrong as well. I’m hoping that our military would not follow a first strike nuclear launch order when we are not being directly threatened. I’m not worried about that possibility with Obama.

                  He may organize and arm a proxy army to fight Putin, but to send in our military in a head-to-head war against Russia? That’s not Obama’s style.

Given that they are a ‘nation-state actor’ with a formal organized military they are almost guaranteed to do the one thing you cannot do today and survive. You cannot mass your forces for a conventional ‘fixed piece battle’ when the US DOD is in your operating theater.

            • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

              Just like the people on this site who claim they are patriots and talk tough, but already admit when SHTF they will run away and be the “Gray Man.” COWARDS!! Or Oh, “to fight another day” they claim. They will never fight and never fire a shot. Until the war is on their doorstep then probably submit like a bunch of women and give up their guns when promised a hot meal at the FEMA Camp. You know who you are. I have some old guy friends who will never fight because they “don’t believe in violence,” they claim. They will be some of the first to die or die in a FEMA Camp.

              • Winston Smith says:

                Fighting is pointless if facing overwhelming force. If a SWAT team kicks in your doors and windows, what is the point of shooting at the one or two you might hit before they kill you? They probably have awesome body armor and won’t be hurt (well…badly) and you’ll be dead. The only reason to fight is if you are part of a larger movement that can mount an acceptable offensive or defense. It has to make sense to fight. Male machismo is not enough reason to fight. It needs to be logical, not just feel right. Now, if you want to launch a movement and see if you can mass a large enough force to join you, go ahead. Until such a force is ready and has good ideals behind it all you are is a lone wolf that will be dispatched quickly and change nothing.

                • Winston Smith says:

                  Maybe, but that doesn’t necessarily mean anything changes overall. All I am saying is that you shouldn’t waste your life. Dying for a cause in war, when it might have a chance of serving a greater good is one thing. Dying needlessly as someone who will easily be passed off as a lone nutter is another thing entirely. Right now war is not here and it may not ever get here. We may just muddle along on the precipice of a great big something for a long time without anyone striking the match to get it rolling. If possible, try to work toward a peaceful solution now to avoid needless bloodshed later. Don’t be so itching for a fight that you miss a way to avoid one.

                  In case you are wondering, I see a few things that could spark such a conflict. One of them is the elimination of the second amendment or an excessive curtailment of it (no semi-autos or high cap mags, for example). Then there is also wide spread martial law declared for the wrong reasons (almost all of the reasons are wrong), or either the suspension of elections or a revelation of massive election fraud that goes mainstream. Then again, a widespread deployment of the military on US soil would also be good cause too. I just hope that none of this ever comes to pass. I would rather not be forced into fighting by the government.

                • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

                  Winston, if they are knocking at your door you already lost. Before that happens you better bug out. Your door will not be the first to be knocked on so stay alert and pay attention ahead of time. Those current SWAT tactics will never work when all your neighbors are on alert with rifles hanging out their windows shooting anything that moves that shouldn’t be moving. You get the call from your neighbor miles far down the road alerting you they are coming. That is the call of the Minute Man and begin to muster up.

          • Jay in UK says:

            Just for information purposes, I’ll point out that the UK and US also have a mutual defence treaty that’s much stronger than the NATO arrangements. It’s largely based on nuclear weapons, for example, the UK produces enormous amounts of weapons grade plutonium. But it goes much deeper than that. Any strike Russia would make against the US would have to also include the UK.

            • nosuchuser says:

              You should pay very close attention when any NATO signatory starts mentioning ‘Article 5’. If any member nation invokes it then we are legally obligated to come to their immediate defense.

        • durango kidd says:

          In a conventional war, either on land, sea, or in the air, the advantage is to NATO, in men, material, and arsenal. Any attack on the US satellite system would evoke a retaliatory strike on considerable proportion.

          The US is not totally dependent upon its satellite system as it has the military space plane orbiting the earth that can change orbits and evade killer satellites. In addition to high resolution cameras, it is likely equipped with the US Particle Beam / Laser weapon that is being added to American naval vessels.

          We also have drones and spy planes: a redundant system that is UNEQUALED by any other Power. :-)

            One such sub is sitting off the coast of NK in case dear leader gets froggy. That sub ALONE can send NK back to the stone age.

                  DaisyK: Iran will not destroy anyone. Iran will be destroyed. Iran will not forego its RIGHT to nuclear weapons and Israel will not forgo its RIGHT to exist, and therein lies the conflict between the two.

                  When Israel is certain that Iran has nuclear weapons, Israel will nuke Iran in a massive First Strike hitting all of its major military bases. Iran will respond as best as it can with attacks against US interests in the Gulf. The US will retaliate and reduce the Iranian capacity for organized war to rubble. Can you say “shock and awe”?

                  Whether it is this year, next year, or the year after, I know not. I do know that Israel will NOT allow Iran a nuclear capability. Thus conflict between the two is inevitable. :-(

                • PWYPreach says:

                  Daisy: I am totally unafraid of Russia. Russia is the kid who just wants to play on the European team, and who is right now standing up to the world bully (the US).

                  China, however, is the world-bully-in-waiting, who is almost ready to make its move. When it considers the US and Europe sufficiently weak (i.e., the purposeful accelerated weakening of the US courtesy of Obama), you will see China more boldly take over something substantial.

                  So what does Obama do in the meantime? Obama shoves Russia into China’s arms…not an inconsequential bad play on the US’s part. The Ukraine fiasco can totally be laid at America’s political door. Obama and NATO angered the bear over violating the agreement to not camp on Russia’s doorstep. The US/NATO did this mainly because the US wanted Russia out of the Syria picture, so that Qatar (a Sunni country) could get its natural gas pipeline through Syria and into Europe.

                  Yet, Russia is really not interwoven into China as, historically, as a whole, Russia has always been part of the European scene. Even Catherine the Great was Prussian (her real name: Sophie Friederike Auguste von Anhalt-Zerbst-Dornburg). So Russia will most likely end up playing on the West’s team again… like it ended up doing in WWII.

                  Iran (a Shiite country) is in a period of time that could be comparable to the 60s (with a Muslim theme)…their young adults don’t want to go to war; hence, their current lessening of political anti-American rhetoric. They were never really America’s enemies anyway…they just got seriously pissed at America’s and Europe’s continued attempts to colonize them and interfere in their politics, and who wouldn’t?

                  Pakistan (a Sunni country) is going to be a problem, as they are nuclear and the nuts are making their move; not to mention, they have aligned themselves with China, who is making a move into India, Pakistan’s enemy.

                  A good portion of Africa (except northern Africa, maybe) will most likely be out of the WWIII game if Ebola has its way — not that they would contribute much either way anyway, although their natural resources are a target, the same as they were for Hitler…if you could extract them without dying from Ebola.

                  So if you pay attention, you can see the WWIII players aligning themselves (China-Pakistan-other Sunni countries like Saudi Arabia again US, Europe, Shiite countries, etc.). And in a WWIII scenario, Iran most likely will end up, because of its Shiite majority, aligning itself (which will surprise a lot of people) with the West.

                  But what frightens me the most is the ISIS situation.

                  How is it that out of the blue, this organization is suddenly so well organized that it can raid Iraq for its American-supplied SERIOUS weaponry, then drag all that weaponry back to Syria and use it against the Syrian government forces WITHOUT any move by the US (you know, the U.S., the country who now invades other countries at the drop of Obama’s bend-me-over pants and made a religion out of its anti-Al-Qaeda rhetoric?)….or any move at all by anybody else?

                  Obama was born to a Sunni Muslim father and spent his important formative years in a Sunni country (Indonesia). Obama does nothing that does not further the Sunni Muslim agenda….it is what he does all day long by his actions and inaction. ISIS is Sunni. However, what should put fear in the hearts of the puppet-masters is thinking they have a leash on the ISIS monster.

                  So you now see that Obama allows the flood of illegals into the US….tens of thousands of them. It was for a specific reason. How else do you allow a country’s enemies through the gate: You disguise them as part of an illegal flood of “kids” and their “parents” and order everybody to not “touch” them and to “shelter” the enemy through your presidential orders. So please don’t get distracted from the real meaning of what he just accomplished. Obama appears to be a traitor, he appears to be a “plant,” and he appears to work against America every second of every day.

                  They use US as a straw man to hide their natural “manifest destiny” from Russia, India, Mongolia, and the “Stans”. What they cannot dominate through economic hegemony (Russia), they will someday take.

                  China is regularly pushing their Border with India, and they will use the Muslim terrorism in their western provinces as the excuse to invade these Muslim countries when the time is right, for them.

                  (e.g Ethnic groups which are still fairly unlikely to have cross-bred with other groups e.g The Basques, some native american amazonian tribes, Ashkenazi Jews, the Koi san)

                  Question for the military buffs – am I right in thinking many criical, military widgets & components are manufactured in China nowadays from microchips for the technology to socks for our troops? In a war situation isn’t it likely that some mission critical systems would be designed to fail if turned upon their manufacturer?

              Ok, my bad, I will concede that 500 cruise missiles may be the wrong number for now, even though I am sure I read that number in an article some months ago, specifically with respect to a US sub offshore NK.

              However four Ohio Class subs were converted to guided missile subs replacing each Trident missile with 7 tomahawk missiles for a total of 154 cruise missiles (each still capable of carrying a tactical nuke).

              154 cruise missiles can still defend against Dear Leader if he launches against US. :-) :-)

              DK’
              Your numbers are way, way off. Trident subs carry 24 missiles each. They used to be MIRVed but that was negotiated away. We have only a few Tridents left that carry ballistic missiles. The rest carry cruise missiles with unknown warhead types. No sub carries anyway near 500. Are you insane or just a nitwit?
              As to particle beams in space, they are not being deployed yet but are still in the test phase. Also the power supply alone would weigh tons.

              • durango kidd says:

                Expat: Are you aware of the small Thorium power plants that have been miniaturized for industrial use? I imagine that any advanced power technology to run a laser in space would be highly classified.

                BTW, it would weigh NOTHING in space, maybe that is why the plane doesn’t come down. :-)

            • nosuchuser says:

              The ‘boomers'(aka Ohio Class Ballistic Missile Submarines) each carry 24 Trident III missiles, we currently have 14 in service, each missile carries 3-4 W88 warheads (treaty limited).

            • The whole Albert Pike and the three world wars thing is a hoax. No letter has been authenticated, to my knowledge, and in addition to a style of writing that is not his, there are words and phrases not commonly used in 1871, or would not be coined into existence until decades later.

          I will also say, I talked with Dave Hodges on the phone back in about 2010 on a particular subject we both had in common fighting the scams by the Government. And was even invited on his show to discuss these matters. Although I declined, because of the sensitivity of the matter, I did not want to be exploited or jeopardize my case which I am still fighting. But I will tell you this, America needs more patriots like Dave Hodges who bring to light the complex compounding problems we are all going to face sooner or later. From every article, or comments, gather the info and you decide. Not every person every time will present all the facts, as if you ever had to write daily on subjects you will or may not have everything exactly right, or how you perceive them.

        • passinwiththewind says:

          I am gonna go out on a limb here and say yes, to what, Say When says, about USA having a snowball’s chance in hell of coming out on top.

          For this very reason; TPTB have too much invested in their USA underground cities, resources, and power thirsts, to let anyone like China,N Korea,Pakistan and Iran get the upper hand in a Nuke War.

          TPTB have created this Middle Eastern/Asian mess to supplant the power bases of those countries for the NWO. If they/TPTB, allow enough chaos and death at the hands of those countries above; then, they will have the “all clear” to engage full out annihilation of the “evil” bastards, without regards to political fallout and revolution at home. The innocent peoples are just considered the casuality cost of war.

          “never let a good crisis go to waste”

          This is their mindset; to create a crisis for their own agenda. Anyone that doesn’t believe this has been living under a rock for the past 30 years, or is too young and dumb to understand what is really going on.

          If the prophecy, of Rev 9:15 “And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men”; is meant to be a “literal” meaning; then there will come a time soon that there must be the total of 2.4 billion + lives lost in the coming World War.

          That war has begun, but it isn’t actually affecting the entire world quite yet. The spirits that will be loosed to put that “thirst for death” into the hearts and minds of TPTB; are getting antsy and stirring. It will happen “if” that prophecy is a literal death of the “flesh”, third of mankind; and not a spiritual death of the soul.
          If it is meant as a physical death, then the debt of much of the USA and other countries would evaporate with those 2.4 billion lives of middle eastern and asian peoples.

          I’m just saying “what if”? It is very possible.

        Russia; the wizened, limp-dick, fossilized remnant of the former Soviet Union doesn’t have all the nukes it once had, and the ones it does are sketchy at best, just like the rest of their sorry stockpile of equipment. They have a few good fighter jets but the rest is pure crap. Our stuff is far superior to anything they have and during drills there is often a ‘failure’ of some equipment. The former Soviet failures were always far higher than ours. Much of the Soviet stuff has gone into disrepair. We have more nuclear warheads that the rest of the planet. We have more deployed on ICBMs, SLBMs, and Bombers than the Russian and Chinese put together. The Russians are great chess players and won’t make a move unless they think they can win. They are very defensive, not offensive, in their movements unless they think they can sweep the board decisively. But their civil defense is to both admired and we should do the same. This is yet another sign of defensiveness on their part.

      • Stan522 says:

        If you follow Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show, (I have from time to time), he once wrote an article stating the US had some sort of secret technology for war that could negate all conventional and nuclear weapons. He cited an inside source and also from some family connections. I believe this article came out earlier this year.

        So if what Hodges writes now is true, what about his previous assertions? How does that play into all of this?

      • MegaYacht says:

        This article is a total fantasy, not because I believe the U.S. is right but it will never happen. We might and I repeat might see a tactical Nuke used somewhere in the middle east or the Balkans but beyond that not a chance.

        I 100% agree that sooner or later we will come into direct conflict with both China and Russia, but those will be both be short lived air and sea engagements. Violent yes but narrow in scope.

        WOW. I read DH’s site frequently, and I can’t believe that (IMHO) he’s strategically and tactically SOOOO mistaken. India would side against the U.S because? They wouldn’t. They’re more afraid of China than anyone else in the world is- for good reason. We’d put our naval forces in the Black Sea (which is wholly Russian owned, for all intents and purposes) when we can attack Syria from the Med much more safely, more effectively and have resupply and repair ports MUCH more available from that route…because? We wouldn’t. Also, by attacking from the Med we’d having the option of moving assets through the Suez to then be available to counter Iran or plain flatten it. India would be too busy with Pakistan, because as unstable as the Paki Gov. is, India has every right to wonder if the Pakis would use the fact that all that ordnance is flying around their neighborhood to either strike first to take out India- or out of sheer fear as to which side India will take. India will be busy enough on their own.One of them wold likely fire unprovoked on the other however (prolly the Pakis would shoot first). As for our nuke missile boats (Ohio class SSBN’s) they carry as many as 192 MIRV’s on 24 SLBM’s EACH…x14. Am I saying that an all out nuke-fest isn’t possible? Not at all. But DH went to great lengths to expound on the details on the why and how, and I’m afraid he got a great deal of both of those wrong. Let’s just say, if he was in charge of the first Gulf War- we’d never have won it. He should stick to what he knows best, and Military Strategy quite obviously is NOT his forte.

            … A Zionist Jew, by definition, owes his primary loyalty to the Jewish community and to Israel. Zionism is not compatible with patriotism to any country or entity other than Israel and the world Jewish community … Zionist Jews and their non-Jewish supporters embrace a blatant double standard. Jewish-Zionist organizations, along with their non-Jewish allies, support one social-political ideology for Israel and the world Jewish community, and a completely different one for the United States and other non-Jewish countries. They insist that ethnic nationalism is evil and bad for non-Jews, while at the same time they vigorously support ethnic nationalism — that is, Zionism — for Jews.

                  Rabbi Dov S. Zakheim, the former Pentagon Comptroller (among a myriad of other military appointments and positions) has written a statement on the ‘ethics’ of rape of non-Judaic women during wartime:

                  It is the consensus of many halakhic [rabbinic law] decisors that the defat to’ar [Gentile female prisoners] can be subject to involuntary intercourse [rape], though only once, after which she must undergo a specific regimen prescribed in the Torah, conversion and marriage, before her [Judaic] captor is permitted further sexual relations with her.
                  Rabbi Dov S. Zakheim, “Confronting Evil: Terrorists, Torture, The Military and Halakhah,” published by Yeshivat Chovevei Torah Rabbinical School

                  Mezizah:
                  By this is meant the sucking of the blood from the wound. The mohel takes some wine in his mouth and applies his lips to the part involved in the operation, and exerts suction, after which he expels the mixture of wine and blood into a receptacle (see Fig. 4, below) provided for the purpose. This procedure [repeatedly sucking the boy’s privates] is repeated several times, and completes the operation, except as to the control of the bleeding and the dressing of the wound.

                  “If a boy under the age of nine perpetrated sodomy upon an adult, the adult is not liable for punishment, for the intercourse of a boy under nine years of age is not legally an act of intercourse. Since a child less than nine years old cannot commit sodomy, he can also not be the object of sodomy….This Baraita supports Rav, for it teaches that if a man engaged in homosexual intercourse with a child under the age of nine, he is exempt from liability.”

[I]f she is three years and one day old, she may be betrothed by an act of intercourse with the consent of her father.” Maimonides “the Great Rambam,” Sefer Nashim 3:11

    3. Sinner says:

      And so it begins……
      The anti-Christ, who suffered a mortal wound “from a sword” (losing the cold War?) attacks Babylon “The great whore” ( A Christian Nation ruled by Muslims and advancing ungodly principles?)
      Later a huge army know as “The Princes of the East” pushes Westward into the Middle East.

      Russia/The West/China/ and Islam, it fits all too well.

      I’m not a Prophet, nor the son of one, this is just my take.

      • Barn Cat says:

        The antichrist is a man who will be possessed by Satan.

        (Revelation 16:13 NIV) Then I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

        Babylon in prophecy is the city of Rome.

        (1 Peter 5:13 NIV) She who is in Babylon, chosen together with you, sends you her greetings, and so does my son Mark.

        China has a part to play during the Great Tribulation.

        (Revelation 16:12 NIV) The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East.

        • Sinner says:

          @ Barn Crap
          Please stop commenting on my posts. I have been a Pastor for over 20 years with an advanced degree. You on the other hand have fallen for a “made up” theology with little hermeneutical support . You embarrass yourself.

          Try putting Christ in the center of your life instead of the lies of the Dispensationalists. You’ve been tricked. Like everything else, for many religion is a business, and the easiest way to draw a crowd is to make up wild tails about “End Times”. That is what Darby, Scofield, and Moody did. That is what La Haye and Hal Lindsey do today.

          • Unreconstructed Southron says:

            Christ isn’t a nation, and neither will be the anti-Christ. The Revelation of John is pretty clear about that one.

              Agreed helot,

              He had my attention until the “advanced degree” part.

              Seminary colleges are responsible for much of the lies being spewed from the pulpits of America.

              They propose segments of the bible to be left out of teaching lest there will be less turn out on the pews.

              Which in turn translates to less dollars into the coffers.

              ….”a little twist to the word here, and a little twist there, and no one will ever know the difference…. like let’s preach a “feel good”, fly away to escape tribulation, doctrine. We can fill up the seats with that one.”

          • Mountain Trekker says:

            Sinner as a Pastor, you rank right up there with Reverend Jackson and Reverend Sharpton.

          • Barn Cat says:

            Really, you’ve been a pastor for 20 years? I’m surprised based on how little of the Bible you actually know.

            You should stop sinning against me by questioning my walk with Christ.

            You’re an embarrassment to the faith.

            • Winston Smith says:

              That well may be, but the Antichrist is still a man-whether you are a dispensationalist or not. It is one thing that is agreed upon by anyone who has taken the totality of what is written about this person in Scripture. Now Gog and Magog is thought by some to be a reference to either the USSR or Russia, but never the Antichrist.

            • Sinner says:

              You have no “walk with Christ” you’re a member of a false religion/cult and in my eyes (and I dare say Scripture’s) no better than a Mormon/Muslim/Jew.

              The trouble is, you don’t have the guts to look into the real Christian Faith, the one handed down from the Apostles, not the one made up by John Darby in the 1840’s.

              I labored in the ministry for over 20 years as a Hospital Chaplin, what have any of you numb nuts down with your lives?

              • Winston Smith says:

                Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18 (KJV)

                You are making out the Christian faith to be about you and not about Christ. Thus, while others on this board may be in a dangerous spiritual condition, so are you. Be careful and search your heart to be sure that your motives are correct and not self-righteous.

      Every week there’s a new “calamity of the week”lurking around the global corner..

      Be afraid!

      Very Afraid!!

      You know ,Mr Hodges, you publish articles weekly that surpass the week before in fear scenarios that never reach fruition along with most of your compatriots in the alt media here on the web..

      First it was N Korea ready to go nuclear
      Then we’re attacking Syria which will result in ww3
      Then the DHS is ready to round us up into FEMA camps
      Obama is to declare martial law
      EMP’S are coming

      The end is near..

      Know what?

      I’m going to continue preparing my gardens
      go to the range and send a few down
      then come home and kiss my wife and grandkids

      then have some adult libations and enjoy the sunset..

      perhaps many of your compatriots should do the same and enjoy life each and every day..

      yeah we know the world’s all fucked up…so what else is new?

      me…I’m going to keep on living and stop looking up for the sky to fall..

      hell..if it happens.. then those of us who are prepared might survive..maybe not!

      until then..I’ll continue to enjoy every precious moment on this earth..

      as the Good Lord intended..

      enjoy the day

            Yes…every one of them, always!

            Been SO busy moving lately, the house is ready, the ground is ready….as is everything else; only a VERY LONG drive remians now. Preparing to return sometime next week with the LAST load; JOG said to tell several of you ‘Hello’…you included, BI, DK, Daisy…and a HORDE of others I can’t remember.

            LAST trip…LAST load, Closing up shop forever; Humanity is near to it’s big decision now…time to get out of the way and let it happen! We are very safe, VERY secure where we ALL are…it sure took a while to find ‘him’…he was the one who suggested “Hyder Alaska’ to me…specifically for everyone HERE; he says it was his SECOND chioce and absolutely perfect as such. He also said – especially – LOOK at the ‘tidal bores’ along various ponts on the Portland Canal…ELECTRICITY generation. However, his first choice is ‘elsewhere’, as is mine….

            Closing here as he asked me to, “Adios Muchacho’s”

It has been 8 long months since I heard from JOG and have thought of him every day…wondering if he and his group were alright…(as so many of us on here were wondering.) Give him all our best, and a great big HUG! take care, CC

              • MayBeSo says:

                Ahhh, one my TWO last unfulfilled directives, yourself and BI (that one later..it will not be well recieved for what it bears though)

                M’am,

                Astute!…”Imitation IS the sincerest form of Flattery”; is it not?, though I do it poorly at best, still, one tries to emulate ‘him’ studiously…such a mind, No?

                I am not at liberty to ‘run off at the mouth’ here, the price paid for ‘inclusion’ as it were…which I HAPPILY pay. My story is for HIM to telll at a later time….someday mayhaps I will be permitted to tell it directly, I will keep my piece until then.

                What follows here is trnascribed DIRECTLY – verbatim – sa a ‘sent’ thing.

                “Hello Dear Friend,

                To start, allow me to aplogize for my abrupt vanishing, Yourself and DH are and have remaained in my thoughts closely throughout all time since; as likely this bearer will tell you…

                A massive generator malfuntion occured immediately prior to my safe return which destroyed our non-redundant comms outward; 600 V suge and electonics do not play well together. Simulatneously, “J” had discovered ‘XKeyscore’ embedded in our sytems. According to her the insertion was ‘masterful’ and aa such we thereafter have bben rather circumspect in our external communications. Thi onbe is dooinbg so from the eschelon locale far from us. Also, according to “J”, this was targeted, deliberately so; draw your own conclusions there.

                I so HOPE that you and DH are WELL; I have fretted that for long and long being ‘out of the loop’ during the past several months. Please do not use this venue as means of allaying my concerns though. comms wILL follow, but please be patient yet a time.

                All is – as said – well here, though I SEE that the ‘Fall of Rome’ is proceeding at an accelarating pace, unortunately, Likely by the onset of this Winter the final pieces will have been positioned by the PTB to thier satisfaction…and the execution will begin; Winter-time is REQUISITE for those to be able to ‘neutralize’ the broader populace. Be prepared therefor. IF you do not feel that your locale is ‘safe’ I have directed this one to ‘broadcast’ the alternate location – one of 4, the only one I will reveal openly- that I had sifted through in locating our own refuge. That place is nearly as secure as our’s is…in some ways better yet, however.

                Be well, blessed Friend…till later, ABJECT apologies, FORGIVE I pray you me. “J” does send regards, strenuously, as well apologies also…

                FINITE…

                He speaks of you often Ma’m; moreso than he does of any others, in truth you remain near to his thought at nearly all times, from my experience. Till later then…LAST thought here; this is NOT an approriate venue for further venue for comms….

                • MayBeSo says:

                  Apologies M’am,

                  20 hours a day, prolonged, does not go well with typing. I hope that you can infer adequately what is there meant, above. Please do not relate my failure – later, to him – above if possible. Thia was a MOST important thing to him…I am ashamed that the flesh is so weak, though the spirit yet is willing. Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa.

        • Sinner, I think Ubiq. is just saying that, yeah, its all going to happen, so what? Live your life and enjoy it. Don’t stand around wringing your hands and wallowing in it.

          I didn’t hear Ubiq say he didn’t think it was going to happen.

          As for me, I’ve got things pretty well packed away and on rotation that will keep me eating for a while. I’ve Got enough ammo to keep the place protected for a while. Enough gasoline to run the deep freeze and the pump a few times a day for a year.
          So, I don’t have to worry. Let the dishonest bastard thieves do what dishonest bastard thieves do. As long as I can keep their theft to a survivable level and keep them from intruding into my life, I don’t give a crap what they do. …and it wouldn’t matter if I did: they won’t listen to me (us) anyway.

          Don’t stand there and wring your hands and watch for the sky to fall, live, love and relax. Just make sure you have the tools and the talents to survive. When the collapse comes, its sounds crazy, but find a way to enjoy that do. As long as you don’t wake up dead, things are really pretty good.

            NetRanger,
            pretty much same boat here. had the power go out today, which was odd, because the weather wasn’t too bad. called the electric company to find out their best guess was on coming back on, they didn’t know.
            ate what was warmed up in the slow cooker, then started the generator. figured I would fill up the tub while the genny was running anyways, and guess what.. those tubs don’t hold water very long. so I learned something anyways.
            if your planning on running the deep freeze and pump a few times a day, plan on using it within a few hours, or have another container on hand.
            thought I’d pass this on to you, your comments are usually pretty on target.

              DB,with tub two answers,first is one of those tub bladders you fill,has a hand pump for pumping back out,about 100 gallons I believe and about 18 bucks,the other answer for tub is pull drain cap/screen and put in rubber plug with wing nut,expands in tub drain,will basically be watertight,I keep one in shower/tub,about 2 bucks at hardware store,probably you have 1&1/2″ or 2″ drain.Keep in mind both these require pre planning before a storm/generator or if you can a actual in home hand pump,thus would add some sort of water storage i.e. rain barrels/cistern/handpump at well,hell,a few empty and refilled milk jugs better then nothing,what ever works best for your situation.

          I don’t need to be included into the “we” part of the “way we don’t expect”.

          Why?

          Because I have read and understood the Book; by rightly dividing the word and using the necessary study tools to do so. I know precisely when and how my Saviour returns.

          Some of the 1611 KJV translations lost the true meaning of the intended Hebraic Word, but it is fine for the beginning and intermediate student, not teachers. The newer translations have changed words and meanings, but not for the better.

          It didn’t take an advanced degree to ‘get er done’, either.

          Good luck and God Bless you for trying.

If we let Hitler have his way we would not be dealing with the Jews today who now run our foreign policy.

    8. Evil forces may be the catalyst of the coming war, and most wars even some of the ugliest have had the pure sense of the battle between light and dark, good and evil.

      The frightening reality today is the friction and hatred that TPTB have fomented has set us up for a fight in the fog, the bar to see friend or foe is so thick now we will through fear and anger kill our brothers and sisters without even knowing.

      I’ve tried over the years to think of a possible litmus test that can be used in a SHTF event that would help gage the soul and character of those we may meet on the next road of war. Although I believe it’s a good idea I’ve still found it difficult, but we’ll need to start somewhere if we expect to maintain any moral society.

      Feudalism is what’s coming when this starts and it will be like nothing ever seen in the history of man and war.

      Actually the effects on humans by war or natural causes can be much in the same.

      EMP by nuclear weapon or by a X flare.
      Disease by contact in the wild or by terrorist event.
      Destruction of major cities by shelling of by hurricane, tornado, earthquake or volcanic eruption.

      War is determine by the length of time and destruction as much as a storm would be by length of time and destruction.

      As you see if you prepare for one type you get an overlap. As everything will interact with each other, the best thing to do is Prepare for the worst and hope for the best. The rest will take care of itself or you will not be alive to care about it.

      HOME LAND SECURITY WARNS – AMERICA WILL LOSE POWER
      Weather by an EMP or CME or a Grid Down Terrorist Attack, WE WILL LOSE POWER and soon. And No matter how we loose power WE COULD BE IN THE DARK FOR YEARS, EVEN FOREVER
      I can show you how to prepare for such an event and when you lose power you will be sitting in your home with lights and power. I live in a large 5 bedroom home that is all electric with a big chest freezer and 3 teenagers who all have large TV’s, DVD Players, Game Consoles and more. My smallest power bill was $67.00 and my average is about $100.00 per month. When I loose grid power to my home the only way I can tell is by looking at the street light across the street to see if it’s lit or not.
      I have a 12 volt system that charges a bank of batteries and from that I run almost all my house lights, inside, outside and in my basement. I have a 12 volt coffee pot, a 12 volt Evaporative “Swamp” Cooler to cool my home, a 12 volt alarm clock and a 12 volt electric blanket to keep us warm on cold winter nights. I even have a 12 volt Plastic Pail Hot water heater to make me FREE hot water from wasted energy that would otherwise be dumped and wasted. I even have an Aquaponics set up that grows fresh fish and fast vegetables to eat and that is powered by 12 volt as well.
      (This is NOT a Grid tie system, this system works independently of your grid power).

          I’ve often wondered what will happen to the prepared individual in a SHFT situation when at nightfall you are the only visible spot in a region with obviously plenty of power and light. Well armed you can protect yourself and wait the clock out, but it will take 24 hour vigilance. Whether it will be roving gangs or government drones, that find you, life won’t be routine. There is a reason the elites are creating their little sanctuaries under ground…as in the Denver Airport.

            Jojo.

            Are you comfortable in the dark? Do you know about your night vision? Traveled the woods in moonlight? Do you know your home or campsite well enough not to use a light?

            You can go from frogs and insects making their noise to dead silence. Ever have a large animal run by you in the dark. They can see you. Be very quiet and stand perfectly still till they want to break and run.

            Now add the Human factor and fear. Also silence can be just as loud.

      Sometimes I think this site is all about fear mongering. Gloom and Doom!!! I agree things suck but come on……. Personally I’m more worried about the ass holes coming across the border. I don’t feel we’re going to nuke the world. Who’s going to benefit from that?

      • Nobody will benefit from the nuking but there are huge political gains to be made if you keep people afraid.

        If you’re scared, you won’t oppose the cops.

        If you’re scared, you won’t buck the system.

        If you’re scared, its easier to influence your vote.

        If you’re scared, you won’t try to find another job.

        If you’re scared, you’ll put up with more inflation and money theft.

        If you’re scared, you’ll continue to think politicians and their lies are relevant.

        So, its not a nuke war they want, they just want people to see the threat. Screw them. I’ve got stuff to do. They are irrelevant.

        The three things governments do:

        1. Lie
        2. Steal

      We are a pathetic race of people. You, me, all of us, we are all a part of the failure of the human experiment. We have had over 2000 years to figure this out and mostly what we have done, and do, is fight with each other.

      I sued to love the expression (back when I still had optimism) but these days I roll my eyes when I hear someone say “Peace on Earth”… there has never been peace on this planet, there will never be peace on this planet.

      “They” decided long that war is just too profitable to stop it. “They” learned that they can manipulate human society with wars… but honestly in the end, we are the “They” and we have had 2000 years to figure it out and we can’t. As a species humans deserve to be eliminated.

      I could go on, but it is pointless.

      I now wonder more about what happens after I die than I wonder what will happen to me in this world.

      I wonder if I will just rot away and that is it… or is there a next existence that my soul goes? I (of course, like everyone) have no idea, but I have lived my life based on “I want to be able to proudly answer for my actions on this Earth if questioned in detail about what I did”.

      I have tried to make this world a better place and all it has gotten me in the end is being poor/broke with no optimistic future. I guess I had my chances to sell out, be a bad guy, but I chose honesty and doing what is right and that has turned out not a very profitable choice.

      I will say I appreciate the spoiled life I used to be able to live in the greatest country during the greatest time period in history. It used to be great. I used to have a lot of fun, but it has been a long time and the good times have long since faded away.

      There won’t be a nuclear war that destroys the world. But it’s still possible that billions of people could die before the Great Tribulation starts. It takes a lot of chaos to bring about a one-world government. It might take more than just an economic collapse. It might take a war that goes nuclear and biological too.

      I get the idea that our lives could go from normal to never being the same again in a very short time.

        @Barn Crap
        As usual you are spouting your “Hal Lindsey/Tim La Haye” nonsense. The “End Times” started the day Christ ascended.

        Want proof? Tamerlane, a Muslim king killed 10% of the world’s population during his reign of terror. Stalin/Mao murdered 100 million! Right now Christians are being crucified in Iraq. I could go on and on, wars rumors, earthquakes, hurricanes. 56 million aborted babies in the U.S. alone, my friend, how much worse do you want it?

        How much worse does it have to get for you before you come to the conclusion that there is no “Get out of Jail Free Card” i.e. the phony pretrib rapture, IT”S A CON JOB TO FILL CHURCHES WITH DUMB PEOPLE LIKE YOU!

        My point, there ain’t going to be any “poof” until “The last trumpet sounds”, check the whole text of scripture, not Darby’s selective reading of it.

        • Barn Cat says:

          I hate your sneering, condescending attitude.

          We know that Jesus will return when we don’t expect him.

          (Matthew 24:44 NIV) So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

          We also know to the very day when Jesus will return at the end of the Great Tribulation.

          (Daniel 12:11 NIV) “From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days.”

          That’s it, folks. Just count off on your calendar for the final return of Christ. Count off 1,290 days after the antichrist enters the rebuilt temple.

          It’s obvious from scripture that Jesus has to come back twice.

          • Pissed Off Granny says:

            Barncat:

            “Jesus will come back twice”?

            • Barn Cat says:

              Obviously, yes, Jesus will come back twice.

              Just like Jesus couldn’t fulfill every Old Testament prophecy during his first coming.

              • Winston Smith says:

                You have to understand that he is an amillennialist to see where he is coming from. They believe that the Tribulation period began after Christ’s death and that the millennial period started shortly thereafter. They also interpret the millennial reign as not being a literal thousand years, but a figurative one. It’s not a very popular theory amongst evangelicals, but it is popular among Catholics and some older denominations. In the end, it is my opinion that we can agree to disagree on it so long as the individual Christian’s theology regarding sin and death, the nature of Jesus Christ and the nature of man follows the correct path of orthodoxy. In other words this would exclude sects like the Mormons (as man now is, God once was and as God now is man may become), Jehovah’s Witnesses (Jesus and the Father are not equal and not one), etc. When dealing with Biblical prophesy and eschatology (the study of the end times) there will always be disagreements and misinterpretations because we have not yet seen what the future holds. It’s interesting to discuss it but it should never get in the way of the Gospel.

        • Winston Smith says:

          Stop being so prideful and arrogant! You seem to be more convinced of your own need to be right than to spread the Gospel. In the end, I concede that I don’t really know what will happen as it hasn’t happened yet. Neither do you. Try some humility on for size. I also know both sides of the argument and, for the record, tend to be post-trib. I just hope I am wrong.

      • Walt Kowalski says:

        Ezekiel says that God will “put hooks in their jaws”. (Ez. 38:4)

        To me…that implies that Russia will do this unwillingly.

        Russia has commitments to both Syria and Iran. How hard is it to imagine that if the U.S. and NATO nations, in their zeal to destroy ISIS, launch attacks into Syria…which might very well induce a response from Russia. Especially in light of our continued provocation of Russia re: Ukraine.

        So….while Russia may not WANT to go down into Syria and Israel, they may feel compelled to do so. The “hooks in their jaws”, so to speak.

        Of course…behind all of this is the globalist banksters….a true global conspiracy that I believe is led by Lucifer himself through human agency…that has been in operation for hundreds of years. And their plans are now coming together.

        Make no mistake…..the agenda of Satan (i.e. Lucifer)is the destruction of mankind. That has ALWAYS been his goal. That is how he rages at God. By destroying the crown of his creation…….man.

        Of course….he will be ultimately defeated. But that does not mean there will not be much carnage before that happens (as the Bible clearly teaches)

        Such a war could create conditions that would be perfectly suited for the globalists to finally institute their “one world government” and usher in the anti-Christ.

        But I also wonder sometimes if this one world government is going to be Islamic. The Shiites believe that their “12th Imam” will be ushered in following a great calamity.

        What if…..the western nations and Russia get into it and neither is left standing? That would leave a vacuum that the might be filled by the new Islamic Caliphate. Can you imagine what kind of horrors will be inflicted upon the people of this world by such a government?

        Just some speculation here…and my own musings about this. Many mysteries that are of course at this point, unknown.

        I am confident of this however. There is not going to be any “fire escape” rapture to spare believers from the tribulation. They are not subject to God’s wrath. But I see no evidence in scripture that they are to be spared from going through it. The “pre-trib rapture doctrine” is a fabrication of John Nelson Darby and C.I. Scofield.

        • passinwiththewind says:

          There are three “key” verses here Walt, that don’t rightly correspond with the idea that A Russian led federation will come against the Nation of Israel, but rather the “house” of Israel, being North America.

          Eze 38:11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,

          The Nation of Israel is definitely not dwelling “without walls” nor dwelling safely, or at rest; and never will be until after armageddon. Our states and cities have no barricades/walls/fences.

          Eze 38:4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth,…..

          This implies Russia has been there previously and is being “pulled back”. The USA bought Alaska from Russia, so Russians were there at some point, to some degree. Ummm?……..also

          Eze 38:12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.

          …”upon the people that are gathered (immigrated) from, out of the (other) nations…..
          ….”gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land”…..

        The BBC ran a three part series on the Ottoman Empire.

        Very informative.

        If you want to understand the mid-east and the Muslims, you have to have at least some knowledge of the Ottomans.

        What many do not understand is that the Ottoman Empire was not completely overthrown until WWI. After WWI, Britain and France carved up the old Ottoman Empire and created……Iraq….as well as other countries. So….the “nation” of Iraq did not exist until after WWI.

        To us…that seems like no big deal. But for the people living in those regions, it created conditions that have led to many of the problems we have today.

        And when you consider that it was our CIA that overthrew the duly elected Prime Minister of Iran in 1953, in order to install the Shah (who was more friendly toward the west) it is no wonder that the whole area is a powder keg.

        What you are seeing in regard to ISIS today is the attempt to re-instate the Islamic Caliphate.

        Watch what is going on in Turkey as well. Turkey has for years been ruled by secularists. That is changing. They are becoming more and more influenced by the radical Muslims.

        To say that this region is a tinderbox is a gross understatement. It could literally blow up at any time….and it may very well start WWIII.

          You know, if you have a resident bully on your block and you’re not strong enough to defeat him, you have five practical choices:

          1. You submit and give him everything he demands.

          2. You keep your head down and hope he doesn’t notice you.

          3. You stand behind the second strongest, and hope he can/will protect you.

          4. You get together with the rest of the bullied people and take down the bully together.

          5. You arm yourself with a wicked arsenal and, destroy the bully, the next time you see him, you get him before he gets you.

          You can pretty accurately put all of the countries of the world, in one of these five categories.

      But someone has dissected the video of that 9 year old shooting her instructor with an Uzi
      It’s another hoax
      I’m sure if you dig you’ll find it
      I could go on and on about why I believe it’s a hoax too
      But I don’t have time to waste on it
      It’s fake and I know it and that’s all that matters to me
      It’s all about garnering support from the unwashed masses for gun control
      Another sandy hoax
      And there were also findings on sandy hoax recently that brought more evidence to the table to support sandy hoax as well , a hoax
      Adam lanzas hat wasn’t made until after the shooting , like , many months after according to the manufacture

      Ya know, I read hodges, but… he has no military experience. He never served in the military. In addition, if my memory serves me, he is not an engineer or tech type. Frankly, his statements such as “US medium range missiles in Syria will stop Russia from moving to protect Iran.” Well… sounds a bit simplistic to me. A few Pershing battalions, even, a few squadrons of 16s or A-10s, really isn’t going to stop a division moving into Iran. So… unless he has a fairly senior cadre of military strategic planners advising him… well, you get my point.

          How about the World War II? Have you ever heard of it?

          • Winston Smith says:

            Well…if you want to be technical… the Soviets did more to win that one than we did. A better choice would be the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, The Spanish-American war or any of the conflicts we had with Mexico.

            • The Old Coach says:

              Um, not in the Pacific.

              And we won in the Pacific all by ourselves despite Harry Hopkins starving the Pacific Theatre of material by sending it all to the Stalin. If we hadn’t fed, clothed, armed and vehicled the Commies, they would be speaking German now.

              • Winston Smith says:

                I’ll agree with you on the Pacific theatre and that Lend-lease was essential to the early days of the Soviet side of the war. However, you can’t minimize the contribution they made either. They had the best overall tank of the war, the T-34, and some fairly decent planes too. The biggest issue they had was a psychopathic leader that had executed all of the senior staff and generals right before the invasion. Plus, he also had very contentious relations with his engineers and tied their hands from developing better weaponry due to his own ignorant views. (The USSR had some absolutely brilliant minds that never reached their full potential.) Had it not been for Stalin, millions more people would had survived the war. Even still, they got it together and, thanks to Hitler’s short-sighted decision to start a two front war, they made the largest contribution to winning the European theatre. Stalin was also able to achieve at Yalta what he tried to get from Hitler in the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact. That of course being the “buffer states” between the rest of Europe and the USSR. About the only thing he failed to achieve was victory over Finland in the Winter War/Continuation War.

                There is, of course, much more detail that can be gone into about WWII/ The Great Patriotic War, but this is a blog post comment and I simply don’t have the space or time to write a book.

                • The Old Coach says:

                  I think there’s more to know about how much Lend-Lease supported Stalin right past the end of the war. For example, Lend-Lease sent them shiploads of machine tools with which to make their tanks and planes. We also sent huge volumes of raw and semi-finished material such as copper. (Hopkins also sent them uranium, but that’s for another day.)

                  As for Yalta – don’t let me get started. Look into this new Diana West book, “American Betrayal”. It’s really just a summary, almost an index, to the research work that many others have with regard to the Stalinist agents in FDR’s administration. I will never look at WW2 histories the same way again. e.g. the Morgenthau Plan, named after but not developed by the Treasury Secretary.

          • Mountain Trekker says:

            Winston, unfortunately Americans and Afghanis have nothing in common. The Afghanis have been living in mud huts and fighting in wars and skirmishes since the beginning of time. And thats not just their army, thats the whole populous, to them it is a way of life. Now America on the other hand, does have the best trained and bravest fighting men on earth, but the American populace is use to all the modern conviences that life has to offer. AC, TV, Big Fridge and American Idol, and throw in a few Video Games, the toughest thing American kids have to look forward to, is football or a soccer game. How would we react to long term survival and door to door combat, Who Knows. I really ain’t anxious to find out. But we maynot have a choice. Trekker Out. Si vis pacem, para bellum!

    36. World War 3 won’t happen, much to the disappointment of media, be they mainstream or alternative. It amazes me how they make it sound like we, 7 billion people, have no choice but to accept it. While the war pigs plan to kill a large portion of us while they hide like cowards in the hiding places, it’s time for us to out them. Rather than be more concerned with being part of the popular crowd as you were in gig school, try learning the real history of the world and get the truth out. Rather than believe 19 Saudis and a Saudi leader in a cave pulled off 9/11, rather than believe story 2 that those buildings were brought down only with controlled demolition, take a look at the 2012 video presentation by Dr. Judy Wood. At the 47:20 mark, watch what happens. What did you just see? Who and what could have done that. When you understand that we don’t know what they are capable of, you can understand what we are capable of, which is coming together, exposing the truth non-stop and watching them run and hide until they are caught and put on trial for crimes against us, humanity. They NEED to convince us that their way is the only way when for so long, it has been the wrong way. They NEED to convince us that this or that must be done. They aim for our minds in order to control us. When we fall for their lethal tricks, they win. If we stop doing so, they lose. Do you want to be free? Expose them with the truth and you can be. Peace.

Then Retreats from Iraq and gives a date when America will retreat from Afghanistan.

      -China is becoming more Belligerent and preparing for war against the US and Japan because of Obama’s gutting of the Military.

      -There is now War in the Mideast in Syria, Iraq and Israel. With Beheadings, Rape, torture and slavery.

      -The UN forces have been attacked.
      -There is now War in Ukraine.
      -The Taliban are on the rise in Afghanistan.
      -The Cartels on the Border are Murdering Border Patrol Agents and Mexican career criminals are raping and Killing American Citizens.
      -The Obama DHS and FBI are targeting Patriots as threats while Illegals get supported by Taxpayers. And ISIS has crossed the Border he leaves open.

      And Obama blames the MEDIA for creating a sense that the World is on Fire !!!
      This is yet another part of Obama’s plan to Take Down America by blaming the Media so he can do away with 1st Amendment rights by claiming they are creating Hysteria.

      “Last time this happened over 60 million people across the planet were dead before it was all said and done.”

      Let me see now. 100 seats in the US Senate. 435 seats in the House.

      What would be most logical path to pursue and involve the least amount of lives lost?

      535 new tombstones or the entire populations of the USA and Europe and any other nations who are downwind from the radioactive fallout that would encircle the entire planet as a result of these diabolically evil, clearly psychopathic, war mongering, blood thirsty jews who are trying to stir up yet another catastrophically destructive war that pits White nations against White nations?

      Which would be the smartest casualty count to pursue, whereby the interests of the entire world were best served – as opposed to the interests of a tiny cadre of excrement particles that were dug out of Satan’s evil rectum?

      The other day, there was a former CIA official, Herbert Meyer, a jew – who was foaming at the mouth and advocating for the assassination of Vladimir Putin, who as we all know – is a White man who has dared to refuse to kiss the evil asses of these war mongering, blood thirsty demonic jews and who has been interfering in their psychopathic, murderous agenda to drag the USA into wars in Syria and in Iran. So, because of Putin’s courageous opposition to this extremely evil and criminal cabal of neo-con war mongering jews and their war machine – these blood-thirsty jewish psychopaths are boiling with maniacal rage and fury at Putin and are now trying to gin up a thermo-nuclear World War 3 that will likely destroy most human and animal life on this planet.

      Putin could do the entire sane world a huge favor by air-mailing one of his sunburns to the district of criminals and relieving America of their mentally insane psychopaths who comprise the gang of 535 greasy, treasonous assholes who all seem to be addicted to the taste of jewish lobby toe jam and various other jewish body fluids of a seminal flavor.

      What did Voltaire tell us about these jews?

      Voltaire was a true prophet when he wrote 250 or so years ago:

      “They are, all of them, born with raging fanaticism in their hearts, just as the Bretons and the Germans are born with blond hair. I would not be in the least bit surprised if these people would not some day become deadly to the human race.” (Lettres de Memmius a Ciceron, 1771)

      I have an idea. Let’s take a vote. Would we rather see 535 lives lost or every human and every animal on the entire planet? Once the votes are counted, let’s send the results on a post card addressed to Mr. Putin, with a CC: to Herbert Meyers.

            Walt Kowalski hit the bulls-eye, dead center in the number 10 ring. Great shooting, Walt!

            With the American public, by overwhelming percentages in just about every poll taken (polls that hasn’t been fabricated by the blood-thirsty jews who control our media and who try to use that media control to shape and mold the opinions of the brainless and gullible couch potatoes) – growing increasingly sick and tired of fighting and funding these jewish wars of aggression all over the planet, as evidenced by the massive public opposition to the earlier attempt by the Israel lobby and Tel Aviv and their toe sucking puppets in the US Congress (McInsane, Lindsay Graham, etc) to drag the USA into an invasion of Syria – and which Putin played a very important role in helping to circumvent, it is pretty obvious that the neo-con war mongering rats have not given up on their war on Syria idea.

            Syria is their stepping stone to an attack on Iran, apparently. So, all these blood thirsty rats did after being rebuked the first time they tried to con the American public into accepting another war against another one of Israel’s enemies – was to fall back, and cook up a different strategy.

            That strategy included manufacturing a brand new bogeyman – ISIS, and then launching a media blitzkrieg that would hammer the couch potatoes 24/7, 365 with stories of all kinds of gut-wrenching atrocities and play the same kind of basic con that Poppy Bush used when he and his administration lied their asses off and hired an actress to spin bullshit lies about ornery Iraqis seizing tiny little Kuwaiti babies out of incubators and bashing their little heads on the floor, in order to snooker the stupid, nose picking, gullible American public into supporting the first Gulf war against Iraq.

            Notice now, how these war mongering, treasonous rats in our Congress and who are on the Israeli payroll are even trying to capitalize upon, and tap into, the boiling hot anger of the American public over the wide open Southern border? ISIS is scheming to sneak into our country and launch car bomb attacks in American cities!!

            I’ll bet used car salesmen all across the Southwest are grinning big grins over that piece of news, as they will be selling a lot of old clunkers to the CIA and Israeli Mossad, who will be soon in the market for cars that they can load up with their false-flag explosives and then light off, to kill a few hundred kwan-zombies in order to force the rest of us to ‘get our minds right’, in the infamous Cool Hand Luke movie fashion.

            Walt is right. ISIS is a CIA and Israeli created and financed phony ‘bogeyman’, and they were created because these blood thirsty, lying, war criminal neo-cons both here and over in Satan’s Sandbox in Tel Aviv have surmised that their Al-CIA-DA bogeyman had started to run out of gas in the minds of the kwan-zombie nosepickers.

            My advice to the SHTFplan community – be on the look out for cars or vans that are parked in unusual locations and which seem to be abandoned. And, if the vans happen to have a logo on the side that reads: “Urban Moving Systems”, I’d haul my ass away from them as fast as possible.

        …that said, “Truth” has no manners.
        It is no respecter of persons. It wounds kings as deeply as commoners. It cuts down the high, and confirms the lowness of the low. It may dress up for formal occasions, but it does so only that it may expose itself more shockingly in front of the assembled company.

        And just as it respects no one, likewise there are few who respect it. But those who do are granted many favors — knowledge, understanding, steadfast resolve,…and of course the honor of, the unswerving hatred of the ignorant millions / multitudes.

It was stated as a repair to paint the underside to protect it from rust. But the bridge repair took months. To clean and paint the underside should have been a few weeks.
      It has been reported the UN has paid for these repairs.

      while this goes on, russia will slowly continue its land grab and continue to look like the best place to be for all those former soviet countries because russia will not be nice to the islam nuts on their soil; thereby looking like a safe place.
      and there you go, russia is back on top; the western world is a shell and then russia and china go in and kill every muslim nut left in the middle east by any means neccessary and rule the world by owning middle east oil.

      this post was right in one thing, if youre under 20; youre life will suck; the world will be going thru regional wars, riots and widespread crime in the usa as the financial issues make people become desperate and lawless, possible nuclear or chemical bombs in the usa from the muslim nuts and defaults on currencies all over the world; all thanks to 50 years of liberalism in the west.

      • Frank Thoughts says:

        I agree: the best thing we can wish for is Russia and China going ape on the militant islamists since it is clear the West is either appeasing them or actually working hand-in-hand with them (notice how many senior positions at all sorts of organizations in the West are now being occupied by muslims: wtf?). The UK is done for example and a few other European countries are on the way to sharia/caliphate hell.

        You can be damn sure sharia law and the caliphate will not be set up in Russia or China, or North Korea for that matter. These places will be the last bulwark of civilization in a world gradually going dark and coming under the cloak of satin’s faith.

      Our children did not pick bad times to be born in, we as decent people have temporarily lost our way. Our moral compass needs resetting. Our political system has morphed into a business geared for profit and control rather than governing the masses.

It would be very hard in this system for a leader with true values to rise to the top.

Taking a quote from Hub (Bob Duvall) in Second Hand Lions. Just because something isn’t true doesn’t mean you have to stop believing in it. If its worth believing in the believe in it. Whether its true or not don’t really matter. There are literally hundreds of religions. The ones that are not true are nothing more than superstition. However they all serve a purpose. Many are necessary to allow the individual to cope with their lifes everyday task & problems.

    51. Be informed says:

      The past four earthquakes on the outer plates shows that something quite large is very likely coming. The almost exact spots in the past that have been hit lead to some very large earthquakes:

      N. Mid Atlantic Ridge 43.7n-28.5w 8.2 Paupa New Guinea and 7.5 in Northern Peru

      SE Indian Ridge 41.9s-84.8e 8.4 Peru, 7.6 Loyalty Islands

      W. Chile Rise 44.4s-82.0w 8.1 Macquarie Islands, 9.1 Mega Earthquake in Indonesia

      Svalbard region 71.6n-2.9w 7.8 Eastern Russia

      The earthquakes at these spots in the past have been within 7 miles of the most recent earthquakes. These areas are extremely narrow like a needle in a haysack and are showing signs of a lot of stress building. To have the same tiny areas hit out of the vastness of the tens of thousands of miles of plate boundaries is almost certainly no coincidence. Again from comment 3215877, these are the areas to closely watch:

      It therefore is highly likely that one or more of the following locations will get hit with a major earthquake by Sept.15:

      Indonesia 7.2-8+
      New Guinea 7.4-8.3
      Santa Cruz Islands to Fiji/Kermadec Islands 7.1-8.4
      Samoa to Tonga 7.0-7.5
      Pakistan, Iran and eastern Turkey 6.8-7.5
      China 6.5-7.4
      Japan 7.0-8.0
      Kuril Islands to Eastern Russia 7.5-8.7
      Aluetian Islands to Southern Alaska coastline 7.2-9.0+
      Mexico and Central America 6.5-7.0
      Ecuador, Columbia, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, northern Argentina 6.8-9.0+
      Guam and Mariana Islands 6.7-7.5
      Mid Atlantic Ridge and South Sandwich Islands 6.6-7.8

      As anymore precursor earthquakes hit, the list could have an additional locations added to the warned zones. It is quite uncommon to have such huge earthquakes that have followed these precursor earthquakes in the past. Something is very likely coming that will be huge, maybe even large enough to cause an ocean wide tsunami.

      • BigB says:

        Hello BI,

        Thanks for the info. I have a question for you pertaining to the earthquake we had here in California last weekend. This was not the long anticpated and expected big one was it? What is your predictive planner thinking? As always, appreciate the info.

        BigB

        • Be informed says:

          @ Big B. There are over 200 faults in California that are more than capable of a 6+. This fault was likely just overdue for an earthquake. It could have been a reaction to the very ready San Andreas, and other faults could break before the San Andreas goes. The issue that really shows just how locked the San Andreas is has to do with the lack of major earthquakes 6.5+ in the state. It seems a commonplace, not always though, that before really locked strike slip faults like the San Andreas there is a lack of large earthquakes on surrounding faults. Maybe this is because the whole land mass is so jammed up that tension is more difficult to release on smaller faults. Could be too that the faults around these type of strike slip faults have longer duration times between breaks. Either case the San Andreas in the southern portion is way overdue, the central part overdue, and the northern part almost overdue.

      JOG is very concerned that what will occur – soon -will be an engagemnet (on some level) between the US and Russia. This will – in his esimation – escalate rapidly. We are old foes, No? Force of habit dies hard. China will remain ever so quiet throughout…until either one or the other…or worse BOTH are weakened, at which point the ‘Coup de Grace’ will be administered. In the case od the Russian’s that will be via ‘nuclear’ means, however, the Chinese dare not do likewise to any portion of North America…the fallout would destroy any hope they have of FEEDING themselves, hence the solution in that cae would be ‘biologic’ in nature…and since NK has been a proven ‘field testing’ apparatus then….

      Hmmm….If I were the BRIC nations I would already have my missile subs positioned all over the globe to launch nukes on all the NATO countries. When the time was right I would launch multiple EMP nukes over all NATO countries and let em rip! As soon as the first EMP nukes went off and did their dirty work I would launch a second set of EMP nukes for good measure. The amount of nukes required for EMP’ing the NATO countries is miniscule compared to how many it would take to destroy all the military installations and large cities of the NATO countries. After the second set of EMP weapons have done their job I would launch nukes on all the major military installations of all the NATO countries and a big one for surface detonation at Ground Zero on the White House in D.C. and all the backup underground bunkers in all the NATO countries. I’m sure both NATO and the BRICS know where the majority of the government hide out bunkers are so that shouldn’t be too far fetched. Will nuclear war happen within the next two years? I do think it will and most likely around October, 2014. The banksters and elitists want to wipe us out and hide underground for five to ten years and then come out and make slaves out of whoever is left to rebuild the world into their paradise. Rock on!

      • Frank Thoughts says:

        Most Likely Scenario Number 1

        It is not even as hard as you say. All they have to do is a combined EMP/cyber attack first, and all the grid comes down across the NATO countries. While panic ensues and politicians finger point and blame, then you launch an invasion, with China and North Korea in the lead. Both countries have the man power and force multiplier and coordination to enter the US land mass and start taking over cities (Russia will start on its end into Europe). Once that starts, panic will hit the nth degree and also the normal human reaction of thought-freeze – or shock – will hit in. Few will be able to absorb the severity of the situation and will not be able to respond, buying the combined BRICS forces time to take all major installations.

        This scenario would play out in just a few weeks. A fight back would occur, but now NATO forces would be fighting a battle in their own backyard, on all flanks and without the ability to coordinate their battles (and with the useless, narcissistic f#ggot populations that now comprise much of the West: “Is there, like, an app for a resistance movement?????”). Wisely, China would deploy the ‘p#ssy brigades’: very hot women whose sole purpose will be to seduce key people in the Western elite and buy their switch to the new world order. This will work and most will decide it is better to do business than to die. China will pick off the easy countries to co-op – Canada, the Nordics, Germany, France, Spain (afraid of Islam they will switch quick for protection) – and the US will be the only trouble spot. Not because of brave patriots, but because of the low-life population with low IQs, whose violence make them difficult to corral into a workforces. Eventually, these individuals will just be rounded up, sent to concentration camps, and disappeared.

      Are you prepared to pull the trigger on your firearm? Will you pull the trigger if you or your family’s safety and your way of life are threatened? If you are prepared to do both or anyone of those, tell me the difference between any of the countries of the world using whatever they have at their disposal to do the same to protect themselves. Oh sure a round is different from a missile, but is it really. When one is truly threated with surviving or not surviving anything will be used. IMHO do not think that nukes will not be used; for they will be, if it means life or death of their country, and way of life. The next world war is going to be horrific to put it mildly. Death will be in the billions and destruction will be unimaginable. With any kind of luck “One Tin Solider Rides Away”. Like I said this is MHO.

      What Mr. Hodges has failed to relate in his article, which was well written but full of errors. the US inventory of nuclear “weapons”, ONLY pertains to the launch vehicles used as opposed to the amount of actual individual warheads, which remains a very closely guarded military secret. I was in the USAF awhile ago, but, I did have the clearances and access to that specific USAF inventory at that time.While Vladimir can fantasize all he wants about making nuclear threats, Russia-or whatever name you wish to use, STILL, cannot manufacture a working reliable motor vehicle, as in automobile or truck. Also, we do have enough intel already on Russia’s capabilities in the nuclear arena to know what they can actually operate, and what won’t even be able to be launched. Our inscrutable Asiatic trading Partner, the PRC, has never been honest, nor should we ever expect them to be, about their actual nuclear capabilities, which I am guessing are far superior to Russia’s, in spite of Vlad’s outlandish grandiose claims. Mr. Hodges is way off the mark in his reported “locations” of nuclear weapons in the NATO inventory and at US bases located within NATO. Also, his lack of knowledge on the US Navy’s submarine capabilities is astounding. Boomer (missile) boats, are all nuclear, and carry missiles with MIRVs on board as their payload. MIRV is the acronym for Multiple Independent Re-entry Vehicle, and each missile with a MIRV payload actually has multiple warheads on board, the actual number is classified and no veteran with integrity is going to “hint” at what the actual number is, as it does vary with targeting missions.
      Going to nuclear war with the US, is a losing proposition for ANY adversary. Nuclear war is horrible, but imminently survivable. We need not worry nor fall prey to the war-mongering idiocy, being spouted by Russia’s version of Pooh-Bear-Obama, that being Vlad. Vlad is all talk, and bluster, he makes the Obama mistake of truly believing his press excrement that is called news releases. Mr. Hodges could have done a LOT better in his article, and not slanted it to fit his personal agenda. While SOME of the material is good, most if not accurate, but it does titillate those who are reluctant to read for themselves.
      We need to be prepared, but not fearful of outcomes we cannot personally control, if you believe in God, and are a practicing worshipper, then be prepared as you can be, have faith, NOT FEAR!

        Sorry to rain on your parade but you seem to have not noticed. Russia has for many years been building the rockets to supply the ISS and put satellites in orbit. When this Ukraine event started the supply of rockets stopped, the US had to build their own. Did anyone see the report the first US rocket had to be destroyed, due to the thing going out of control. Also, the Russian and Chinese arms industry is more up to date.
        Recently a US frigate sailed into the Black Sea and was buzzed by a Russian aircraft several times, it then sailed to a port on the western shore. After some days there, sailed home. Weapens systems malfuntion, maybe.?
        How about the Russian sub in the Gulf of Mexico for a month, before it was detected. Then the US spyplane off the coast of China whingeing about the Chinese pilot doing a barrell within 15 metres of it. Damned good flying I would say. What would the US do if Russia/China cruised off the east or west coast of the US on a very regular basis.

There are countries (Russia, Isreal, China) who see a opening of weakness.
      The concern of what the US will do is no longer a second thought. Everyone does what they want. Isreal is going to bomb Iran which will kick off a braid regional war and eventually a world war.
      The US economy will not implode until the wars start. The facade will crumble and people will panic. There will be a short lead time where everyone ,sans people here will pretend as though it will be a passing issue. Recognize the shoe dropping and spend the time hoarding more of everything.
      The Paul’s mentality will prevail. The Paul’s are right except for the fact sometimes people need their asses kicked. Never mind, that’s how we got here. When it kicks off, watch your ass. No “I told you so”. Pretend like you are either dying or dead.

The Magnetic Pole Shift the is occurring is affecting the magnosphere . That in turn effects the weather & makes earthquakes ,Volcanos & other types of clatyclismic events. These events are symptoms not the cause. The cause is a magnetic pole shift. Its going to be a big adventure. Think of it as an end of an age earth changing event, We will likely see all the things that occurred when the poles shifted during the EXIODUS. Nothing will stop it so just as well embrace the adventure. The goverments know the pole is shifting. Why don’t they announce and tell the citizens? Because the citizens will stop doing the bidding of the government. Announcing will cause chaios & turmoil- Rioting civil unrest Ect. The Us government knows all the low lying elevations will flood.

      This article had so much time and effort put into it that I hate to call it laughably propagandist, but that’s what it is.

      Enough said.

      (This elitist/Satanic/evil monster banker crap has gotten old, as has the very ignorant repetitive proclamations of the CIA being behind every evil action in the world. Some very serious growing up and waking up needs to occur here.)

      “WW4 will be fought with rocks”

      Meaning that there will never be world peace. There will always be someone that wants to have power over you.

      To prevent the next battlefield from being on your homeland there are a handful of strategies that you can use. All of them will be under constant assault. That’s the game.

      The Swiss thought they had it figured out, stay neutral, have a secure and secretive banking system that allows despots to hide their booty away, now Dubai is vying for that reputation and position in order to service the despots that would gladly destroy the Swiss. If islam marches through europe, the Swiss will not be spared.

      Suicide isn’t a good strategy either and that seems to be the one of choice for the western civilization.

        @ RickInOregon,

        The orginal story which is the origin of that (partila) quote is as,

        “Once a reporter asked Albert Einstein, “Sir, what weapon do you beleive that WWII will be fought with?” Mssr. Einstein pondered a moment and replied, “”I do NOT know what weapons WWIII will be fought with…but I know what weapons WWIV will be fought with…sticks and stones.”

        slightly abbreviated from the original, only.

      (Big Jake): “Your fault, my fault, nobody’s fault” the first one to go off and everyone that is in existence will go off or until there is no more or nobody is left to push buttons. You can pretty much take that to the bank. “Your fault, my fault, nobody’s fault.” It will happen.

      @everyone…heads up. I just came back from a week in the woods at our place. One of our neighbors came by to say hello and bs a bit. He brought his friend. Very nice fellow who has son who works for Homeland Security. At Mt. Weather. Can’t even talk to his Dad because NSA got their hooks into all of his communication devices. He said they are all (people at homeland security and lay people there) are PREPPING LIKE MAD!!!!! He gave his Dad a heads up to just prepare but couldn’t say what. (I asked him that question. I wanted to know…economic, war, famine, ?) Dad said son couldn’t say but wanted to warn Dad.
      He said that ALL of them are buying up food, shelter, water, you name it. He didn’t suspect there would be room for them all at Mt. Weather.
      I wanted you all to know this. The Dad was very pleasant but the talk gave me the heebie jeebies.

      you people forget we have a war coming to Israel…Psalms 83 war is between Israel, Gaza, Lebanon, Syria, Jordon and Egypt….then the Ezekiel 38 war between Israel and Russia who invades her with certain of her neighbors of today…Persia (Iran), Cush (Sudan), Put (Libya) Gomer and Bethgarmah (Turkey)……and then Armageddon which is the valley of Megiddo or the valley of jezreal…..the players are already set for the Psalms 83 war…..then after that war,Israel could very well be living in peace in unwalled places…we already know that Russia wants her natural gas deposits….Putin has already tried to make a deal there and was turned down….and even though he has plenty of resources having more would make him a stronger force in the world…and who better to get them from then Israel…and if he does that then all the other mid eastern countries would be beholding to him and they have plenty of oil to give him power over…whoever owns the oil owns the world

        yeh um ….as soon as you go quoting that religious rubbish. I just know you are full of shit.

      • Knobby says:

        I believe you are mistaken. Magog (the land of Gog)is most likely Turkey, which was secular and a supporter of Israel but which has recently radicalized and become hostile toward Israel. Meshech and Tubal were conquered by Nebuchadnezzar and the book of Ezekiel tells us all about that in chapters 27 and 32. In Psalm 120:5 the psalmist laments in captivity that he lives in Meshech, among the tents of Kedar. Elsewhere in scripture we read of the black tents of Kedar. Bedouins of Syria still use black goat-hair tents, another indication of the Levantine location of the lands of Gog.

        No where else in scripture does God name specific and known lands only to have them indicate somewhere else, so why do we insist on trying to make Russia fit where it does not? We do it because of current geopolitics and old prejudices, not sound interpretation of scripture.

        If you take all of the lands named in the post above, it’s most of the Eurasian and African 10/40 window which would mean the heartland of Islam allied or gathered into a Caliphate and ready to attack Israel. (I went to look for something I saw last week, an Imam saying that Turkey should be the head of any new Caliphate because they alone can unite the Islamic factions. I found this story instead and think that you should take a look at it. The author clearly believes that the Ezekiel 38 coalition could be rooted in what we see forming now. (For those who desire to see the US as the villain or a fool, you will love this!) http://shoebat.com/2014/08/31/u-s-aids-turkey-creating-islamic-caliphate-antichrist/

      A topic that no one seems to be talking about is technology and its dependence on computers. Where have all the hacking of accounts, corporations, and other systems? Russia and China. How many people have written about the taking down of our grids and banking systems by hacking? Only a few that understand that technology is an ongoing game of cat and mouse that constantly has to change to be effective. Can hackers be more of a threat than the nuclear capability of anyone. Can hackers stop any threat or cause destruction on their own? ABSOLUTELY war talk and nuclear self destruction is a lot of posturing and hot air as it all takes superior technology and its ability to stop hackers from being able to nullify the advantage. Ask yourself who has gotten into whose systems. It isn’t the USA. Look at the people that come here to learn everything and go back home. USA students don’t do that.

      I’m ok with a nuke war, really!
      It’s alright to have the flash bang destruction of major cities and the deprivation & the Mad Max savagery that will follow, if Israel is rendered into protons, neutrons, light & heat in the process!
      It’s worth it!

    81. This article is a tiny bit laughable!

      In the nuclear weapons chart, they have labelled Russia’s affiliation as “NATO” and Israel’s as “Independent”. HAHAHAHA!

      And the comments at the very top about the 72 hours are too stupid. Ant blind person can see the truth as to what’s going on a continent away: USNATO is driving the confrontations in Ukraine, Syria, Korea, etc. To make it sound like both sides are equally guilty is ludicrous at best.

    82. Lyle says:

      Counting on rational decisions to always be made under severe pressure with emotions running rampant never works out well. History is full of examples of mistakes being made. Sooner or later our luck runs out, just because “so far we’re all good” attitudes prevail, a rogue general in pakistan doesn’t care.

      Just be okay with death.. It’s not so bad really….the pain centers shut down..and there is much less pain..even if parts of you are blown off. Really…stop feeling worried and sad..and accept what is..best way to go..and then you enjoy the moments so much more…and live life to the fullest…
