Imminent Emergency? FEMA Makes “Urgent Requirement” Request for Five Million Bottles Of Water

This article was written by Daisy Luther and originally published on The Organic Prepper. Editor’s Comment: While we don’t know what the emergency is here, and there is no way of knowing if any sinister motives are involved in a simple request for water, it is evident enough that society is at its breaking point, and literally dozens of factors could send the system into collapse at virtually a moment’s notice. What is happening? What may happen that would necessitate FEMA’s intervention? Just to start the conversation, there is: severe weather, including record floods in Louisiana; tension of the presidential elections; riots and protests designed to clash with police and escalate racial tensions; the fragile economy, with its storm clouds threatening to drench the entire globe in crisis.

McNeilly, a weapons engineer, who allegedly served from January to April this year on board the HMS Victorious, claims that a number of security lapses and technical faults with the Trident missiles carrier exposes the UK nuclear deterrent to potential terrorist attacks that “would kill our people and destroy our land.” Possible attackers have “the perfect opportunity to send nuclear warheads crashing down on the UK,” he claims. In his revelations, the whistleblower notes some 30 safety and security flaws on Trident […] Read More

Why You Don’t Have to Be Libertarian A-Hole to Survive a Worldwide Catastrophe

We assume disaster makes us selfish and mean. That’s just not true. By Natalie Shure / AlterNet The following is the latest in a new series of articles on AlterNet called Fear in America that launched this March. Read the introduction to the series. Units in a new luxury condo development in an underground Kansas bunker are being rapidly snapped up by rich clients. The eager buyers are willing to put up non-financed millions to ensure their security during an end of times-style disaster. Project developer Larry Hall explicitly hocks this fear: “it’s not a matter of if, but when” a cataclysm could trigger this necessity. I cried foul on the idea that hunkering down in a former nuclear missile silo is the best strategy for survival—in fact, the impulse strikes me as profoundly cynical and conservative. “Doomsday prepping,” after all, is a response to fearing the worst in others. Prepping enthusiasts tend to rule […] Read More
