Do you LOVE America?


    (This article is dedicated to SHTF reader Equorial, who came up with the original idea)


    There are plenty of things happening up to the minute that are very serious.  This list is not comprehensive, but meant to give you an overview of some of the things that have been put into place and a basic framework/timetable to use in your planning.

    1. August 16, 2016 – The CDC Rule “Control of Communicable Diseases” was published in the Federal Register [Federal Register Number: 2016-18103].  In this regulation the CDC empowers itself to apprehend and detain a person or many people to stop an epidemic, even before signs and symptoms appear.  Source: article by  Catherine J. Frompovich, “ALERT: U.S. CDC Giving Itself Unconstitutional POWERS to Round Up and Detain Citizens En Masse Anytime, Anywhere And Throw Away the Key.” (Link)
    2. August 31, 2016 – Tyler Durden of Zero Hedge reports the fall (bankruptcy) of Hanjin, the 7th largest container shipping firm in the world, with supply chain disruption just beginning to make a ripple effect.  Article: “Global Supply Chains Paralyzed After World’s 7th Largest Container Shipper Files Bankruptcy, Assets Frozen.” (Link)
    3. September 3, 2016 – G-20 summit in China, Obama signs the U.S. on to the Climate Change agenda; documents are given to the UN with a U.S. commitment to reduce greenhouse gases and regulate all pollutant-producing industries prior to the end of 2016.
    4. September 3, 2016 – In an interview conducted by Rick Wiles, with Bill Holter comes the report by Holter that Jim Rickards, former CIA operative said the “dollar dies on September 30, 2016 at 4:00 pm. (link)
    5. September 5, 2016: An article circulates that the website Behold A Pale Horse report from July 5th that Obama had told the Washington Post “Americans would be better living under Martial Law.” (link)
    6. September 6, 2016 – North Korea lobs three more missiles toward Japan; Japan’s missile defense system ineffective, and the North Korean missiles are multiple-stage prototypes for ICBM’s.
    7. September 6, 2016 – Stefan Stanford of All News Pipeline releases a detailed, comprehensive report on the 2017 Winter Forecast, along with an e-mail from an active Law Enforcement Officer with a military contracting background and a dire warning of a bio-weapon and the collapse of the U.S. dollar being imminent, setting the stage for a freezing winter with a collapse and a tremendous civilian die-off.  Article: “Active Duty LEO Warns America to ‘Prepare for a Gut Check’ – This Worst Nightmare Scenario for America Has Already Begun.” (link)
    8. September 8, 2016 As of this writing:  Russian troop exercises and buildups occur on the eastern border of Ukraine; the U.S. and Russia still have not come to an agreement on how to conduct operations regarding Syria; Turkey continues its offensive in Syria; Iran continues to “buzz” the U.S. Navy warships, with the Navy responding with warning shots.
    9. September 9 through September 12, 2016 – the annual Muslim “Hajj” ceremony will take place
    10. September 11, 2016 – the 15-year anniversary of the destruction of the Twin Towers and 9/11.
    11. September 15, 2016 – the one-month date the aforementioned CDC regulation has been published in the Federal Register
    12.  September 30, 2016 – The “Deadline for the Dollar” aforementioned by Jim Rickards.
    13. October 1, 2016 – The Internet officially handed off by Obama via the Commerce Department to ICANN, an organization to regulate the Internet primarily by Russian and Chinese government officials.
    14. November 6 through November 7, 2016    ?      U.S. Election: “To Be or Not to Be: that is the question.”

    This is a ton of information and events, and none of it should be taken lightly.  In such a vein, Equorial was the one who provided me with the food for thought of this piece.  He mentioned that election time might be a good time for everyone to consider taking a hotel/motel room somewhere off the beaten path/away from major metropolitan areas or centers of potential trouble.  I consider this an excellent idea, and wish to expound upon it with this for starters.

    How about renting a cabin for you and your family for 3-7 days in a remote area during the period encompassing the election?

    I wish to state this would be perfect for those in an urban/heavy suburban area without a definitive “bug out” location for either a residence or a fallback location.  This is the off-season, in which the prices would be considerably cheaper, now that the kids are back in school and summer is over.  You could take your supplies and materials, all of your gear and essentials, lock up the apartment/house, and head to the cabin.

    If the election doesn’t occur because of Obama and a martial law-type scenario with riots and such, or if it does with the aforementioned components…you and your family may stand a better chance out of the area of the majority of destructive events.  I mention the cabin; however, be advised there are some small, remote towns with cheap motel rooms during the off-season that could be used in the same manner.

    If nothing goes wrong: then it’s a good opportunity for you and the family to get away and practice your emergency procedures, do some training, and enjoy the great outdoors together.  You’ll all be in a better position whether it hits the fan or not, and something positive could be derived from it.  Another back-up to this plan would be to make arrangements to stay with a remote friend or relatives.  Be honest with them: tell them the reasons behind it.  In this manner you’re up front with them and they’ll be on board with the plan.  It also saves you from an “eviction notice,” that could turn ugly very quickly.

    The whole plan, of course, assumes that we make it as far as the election with everything that is going on right now.  The whole point is to keep abreast of the things that are happening and plan accordingly to do the best you can with what you have and within your means.  Organization and planning will take away a lot of the guesswork to where your actions become reflexive when all of the details are ironed out.  Thank you, Equorial, for that good suggestion, and thanks to all of you readers who provide great information and techniques with your comments that help other readers out in a positive and productive manner.

      1. They need to detain Hillary she is spreading Pneumonia.

        • that’s probably what the left is thinking.
          Then they can… suspend the election, replace her as candidate with Crazy Uncle Joe, or leave us with whats-his-name, the VP pick

          good times >.<

          • Kudos to you Equorial, Good idea for those with no retreat!

        • … also a heavy, and uncontrollably load of diarrhea from her mouth as well. ☠

          • Is that what they taught you in the special forces Gerri Jo? When the shit gets ugly, you’re gonna turn tail and run? You’re a fraud.
            Stay quiet Be smart

            • OK Thats it…… I’m bringing the tomato plants in! I should be just finishin’ up work about then so I will be home 🙂 Wireless switch remote in 1 hand… AK in the other. Oh and a big assed drinky poo with a super long straw 😛

            • How is avoiding the initial onslaught and living to fight on your own terms make him a fraud?
              That’s sound strategy. Heck, that’s a primary reason most of us HAVE a Bol…

              • You’re right Marcus, my apologies. I have read a lot of johnsons articles and being familiar with some of the things he makes claim to about himself, I call him a fraud. He wrote an article about a particular experience and I wasn’t the only one who caught him In that lie. Many of his articles are loaded with fear porn and I swear he’s having an affair with Vladimir Putin. I don’t talk much about what I’ve done or know or what I have, but I know a little about SOCOM ops and he is a liar. I take it personal when I read his stuff, and knowing what I do, I know he is a fraud. My apologies if I offended you.
                Stay quiet Be smart

                • Jackknife, I’ve been reading your comments for months, now, and it seems as if the only thing you ever do is get on Jeremiah Johnson. Now, you’re sayin you take it personal? Seems to me he offered you out once. Take him up on it? No?

                  I know who he is and know he’s for real, and not only that…you’d last about a minute with him…heeled or unheeled. That’s a fact. He’s a Christian and tries not to lose sight of the fact. You, on the other hand, aren’t, and I’m not either.

                  Save everybody your comments, save us all from reading your boring, redundant knocking on him. You sound like a bitch.

                  Stop bitchin and bein a bitch.

                  CSM (Ret.), 1st Ranger Bn.

                  • 1stbatBOY. I’d last about a minute? You know me that well? I’ve never seen your handle before, which leads me to believe you changed it. Is this you Gerri Jo? Oh, and that offer he made was hardly that. Get real. You were the CSM of the 1st Bn? When?

                  • And you sound like his bitch, bitch. If he were a Christian, why’s he threatening me. I’ve never once threatened him or anyone else here. All I ever say about Gerri ji is that he’s a lying fraud. It sounds like I hit a nerve. If you’ve been following my posts that close and you remember when he “offered” me out, you might wanna get some help for your obsession.

      2. How can we stay abreast of things and plan accordingly when it changes every friggin day.. Im just gonna plan on dying the day after tomorrow or the next or next and drink more beer that should work.

        • Works for me too lol.

      3. Well,a lot of things could set shit off!Still,cabin renting/visiting friends in deep country good advice as it does put one in better spot/can practice some skills but also,a vacation.That really ties together some posters tired phrase(Not the smalls,I promise!),”Live for today,prepare for tomorrow”

        • Ok ill drink the cold beer i have in the fridge then tonight before bed I’ll prepare for tomorrow put some more warm ones in for tomorrow

          • Hey now thats prepping ! lmao

      4. When you say the “Sky is Falling!”. —EVERY DAY.
        “Collapse is Near. Banks gone soon. Dollar failing.” —For YEARS!

        Result: You are Tuned Out. —People No Longer Listen.

        A normal, sane person, doesn’t know if they should, “Sell out and run to hills.”
        Or just have another beer and watch the Packers game.

        Articles on this web site have said “End is Near” for YEARS now.

        What do you say about that?
        Seems like Fear Mongering to sell stuff?

        When you scream “Fire Fire Fire” for years.
        People burn up when there really is issue because you were” Chicken Little” for too long.

        Like the boy who cried wolf.

        Notice how few comments on this site as opposed to years ago?
        Have those people been rounded up? Left the country? Been killed?
        Government editing comments out?

        Web site Boss should Respond.
        Where is real info?
        Media is lies and BS.
        Politicians are Lies and BS.
        This web site ALWAYS says “End is Here.” “Like a bad Baptist Preacher.”
        Anyone have any Answers. Anything of Value-Substance.

        I was a sucker for Y2K. Then I had government docs in hand saying it was real problem.

        I scared my wife to death and nearly divorced because of a Putz named Dan Quayle who seemed credible and said Russia was mobalising for Attack on Western Europe.
        I was about to Evacuate. Scared the hell out of her and she thought I was Nuts.

        Another time Navy buddy called me up a few days before 911 and told me to stay out of NY City, stay home, don’t get on planes. I did as instructed. Pissed the wife off. Canceled a trip. Then 911 orchestrated event actually occurs. Wife freaked out… bad.

        My Navy Buddies exact words “US Government was up to no Good. Going to do bad things.”

        Is the US government about to do Bad Things again?

        • I am at that point too. I can’t afford to do much so far as getting out of the suburbs and all though, so I do not have the luxury of leaving if it all goes to hell. Still, I am tired of being afraid of what is to come and so I have adopted an attitude of reacting to what happens instead of what I think will happen. I keep a bag of supplies in my car and am rarely ever more than 10 miles from home, or about a 2 hour walk. The most important thing though is that I carry knowledge with me in my head that can be used in a variety of situations. In the end, that may well be all that most of us can do since we also need to live our regular lives in order to not trigger personal SHTF moments every time we hear someone say that something may happen.

      5. GS, that is the best plan I’ve seen in awhile.

      6. ****
        Did you know that hens like their privacy. If hens don’t have sufficient privacy they will stop laying eggs.


        • ***
          Did you know Alpaca is warmer and softer than wool. I recommend every wise person buy every member of your family a skullcap made of Alpaca.

          We had “global warming” because the earth cycles between ice ages. We peeked and reached the mid point which is why it got hot. (TPTB took advantage of our ignorance to frighten and control us with a bogus lie that we caused “global warming”.) Now things will cool until eventually we go into an ice age. Perhaps the desert will bloom.

          But no doubt TPTB are preparing for the future cold and ice. Their underground fortresses will be shelter. When they emerge from time to time, they will be dressed in Artic suits. Under which will probably be alpaca long johns and gloves and an Alpaca skull cap. Unless there is something better out there I’m not aware of yet.


          • Is alpaca still warm if it gets wet? I have an alpaca store close by I will check it out. Thanks

            • Genius:

              Yes, I believe it is. You’re lucky to have a store close by.


          • Better yet, buy every member of your family an alpaca. 🙂

            • Mek:

              I was thinking along those lines. I found that a pregnant Alpaca is approximately $30,000; and, a high quality stud is about $150,000.


      7. Lots of scuttlebutt on the web that when the proverbial smelly stuff hits the rotating metal blades the Federales will attempt to impose martial law and totally restrict travel. In the words on one insider..”When it goes down you are going to stay wherever you are.” Jim Rickards says S-Day will be September 30th with a monetary/banking crisis. As a former CIA spook, he may well know some inside information. Reportedly the DNC is having an emergency meeting today to consider the prospect of replacing The Hildebeast on the ticket. I conjecture the singularity will be well before the November 8th date. Folks not already at their BOL are likely to be SOL. I’m working like crazy to get all the field pea dry pods picked, shelled, and in 1/2 gallon jars and pump out most all the air. No insect problems with no oxygen. Got all the popcorn and corn up already. We’ve a mechanical pea sheller and corn sheller. We will eat well regardless…

        • To prevent insect problems in seeds, sprinkle in a little snuff. For food items, just rinse before use.

          We have a large stockpile of empty snuff containers for seed storage. There’s enough snuff still remaining to kill bugs.

        • Martin Armstrong called Oct of last year. Nothing happened. Who the hell knows. BUT, I do feel that something is brewing now stronger than any other time in my mind than ever before. I see/feel the tensions out in the public. Road rages are up, people are coming unglued and are becoming dangerous IMO. Be careful out among “regular” citizens. People on both sides of things are pissed for different reasons and the tension is palpable. Also be careful turning your back on anyone. It’s getting real out there. Significant changes seem to be taking place every day now.

        • just finished shelling the last of my corn. Will winnow it tomorrow morning in the cool of the day. then put up for grinding corn meal through the winter.

          only sweet tatters left to dig.

      8. I knew shorting the mkt in September was a good idea.

      9. It’s not only that 3 to 7 day election window you need to keep an eye on; it’s the entire lame duck window from Election Day all the way up to Inauguration Day.

        My best guess is that if they don’t break the glass on a “break glass in case of emergency” black swan in the days leading up to the election, they’ll let the election run its course. Hillary would get blown out big, then they’ll break the glass during the lame duck window. In my opinion, the most likely scenario will see Deutsche Bank/Italian banks blow up and take everyone else with them, somewhere around the second or third week of December.

        Trigger the black swan too close to the election, then people may actually take their heads out of their asses and make the connection: Obama never really intended to leave office 01/20/17, and he needs something major to invoke Article 4 Section 4, or to declare a state of national emergency. One thing is for certain: events in this country are starting to line up very favorably for Obama to do exactly what I said.

      10. Are you scared yet?

        • femaregion1

          Nope. Looking forward to it.

          • Bring it already

            • Breaking the law. Let the bodies hit the floor. by Drowning Pool.

      11. Just something to think about I have always had a mechanical can opener never owned an electric one but I recently hurt one of my hands at work and I have never thought about it but it’s kind of hard to open canned goods with one hand.

      12. ?➡?

      13. This is one of the first articles to mention the “Hanjin” bankruptcy, which is really a huge thing. This South Korean shipper going under has resulted in 19 billion in goods ending up in limbo. This is how fragile the global free trade system is. The dry goods index is so low shippers can’t make money anymore.

        People can expect the shelves to be a little light this Christmas. There will be shortages of certain Asian products. As well raw material on the way to Asia aren’t showing up. This has the potential to snowball, as companies with too much debt caught with shipments in limbo may not be able to financially continue if delays and losses are too high. This is also the primary pipeline time for American Holiday shopping. The suppliers who’s goods are in limbo usually go heavy into debt to make quotas. Who are the insurers? Who are the store chains? Who are the bankers, who are the manufacturers.

        The G-20 global warming treaty Obama signed over Labor Day will put a lot more Americans out of work. Globalist corporations will just shift production overseas. US based companies will be crushed. If memory serves, I believe a UN treaty like this does not need Senate ratification. So it’s a done deal.

        Amazing no one is discussing these two events. Nice job J. J. And Mac.

      14. It’s pretty clear that this Internet’s days are numbered. After the Internet is no longer available for free usage by those who would sound the alarm against tyranny, everything the people have learned from it will have to stay in their minds. The CDC can cook up many excuses for rounding people up. The people will have to regard ANY attempt by government to “detain” (capture) them as an immediate, clear and present act of war, to be defended against and repulsed by any means available. Contagion can be fought with fire.

      15. They can look you up and hunt you down, if you own or rent anything. They can GPS you if your phone, car or other electronic dependence is still powered and pinging your location to them. They’d like to get you isolated, where they know you are, so they can attack you, like they did Finicum, with all his “friends” with their hands in the air and with no one encircling his attackers.

      16. Bring it on because i’m going after the bankers whilst you all argue about what puppet is going to win the election or how your ready to run to the woods like chickens or even deal with any race wars that the bankers have already planned.

        Your kicking the shins, i’m after the throat
