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. Maybe nothing will happening, but there is a very real chance that something bigger is headed down the pipe. What do […] Read More

“Better Than Paper Money”: 7 Things You Need To Have When the Economy Collapses

This article was written and originally published by Activist Post. Editor’s Comment: These are the basics you should have covered. Many of the widespread, system wide scenarios involve a financial system that is crippled or inoperable for a period of time (as seen in Greece). There, cash is much better than non-working digital payments and assets locked behind institutions you can’t access. But money won’t buy things if there is no commerce, no stores and no one to do business with. On the other hand, these supplies will not only keep you and yours going for quite a while when the SHTF, they will also make good barter items in the underground economy. These 7 Things Are Better Than Paper Money in the Bank When the Economy Collapses by Activist Post So you’ve done the hard work of getting your finances in order and now you’re looking to invest […] Read More

13 Steps to Prepare for Civil Unrest

Gaye Levy Activist Post It has been over two years since I wrote about the “Perfect Storm of Civil Unrest”.  Looking back, it would be easy to think that perhaps the article was a bit reactionary given current events at the time.  On the other hand, not a whole lot has changed since then. These are still uneasy times. The names and faces of the powers-that-be may be different, but the actions are the same. Normal, ordinary middle class families are still struggling and corporate corruption, hidden agendas, and cover-ups are still commonplace. The threat of an Ebola or other pandemic, global economic collapse, severe water shortages, and immigration/border woes simply add to our concern about the future.  Fear, sickness, and deprivation evoke chaos; and as we reach that tipping point, it seems only prudent to prepare for civil unrest, riots, looting, crimes against persons, domestic terrorism, and more.

Report: It’s YOUR Fault: Fed Says Americans Who “Hoard Money” Are To Blame For Poor Economy

Mac Slavo Activist Post Despite arguments to the contrary from the Obama administration, mounting evidence suggests that the U.S. economy is rapidly falling back into negative growth territory. More Americans are out of the workforce than ever before, median household incomes are at levels not seen since 1967, and consumer spending is coming to a veritable standstill. The crisis is apparently so significant that a Federal Reserve governor recently said U.S. policymakers are crafting regulations that will force bank depositors to cover any losses should their financial institutions fail. The question that many are asking is, how did this happen? How, after six years of recovery efforts and trillions of dollars printed, is it possible that the economy is not booming again? This week the Federal Reserve published a report that claims to have figured it out and it turns out that the renewed economic downturn has nothing to […] Read More

2013: Expert: “What People Have Got To Know Is That They’re On Their Own, Literally…”

By Mac Slavo SHTF plan Over coming weeks millions of Americans will be tuning in to NatGeo’s new American Blackout film about surviving in a post-power grid collapse environment that lacks electricity, fresh water and the normal flow of commerce. For most it will be nothing more than standard evening entertainment, but what if such an event turns out to be a future American reality? Such a scenario may seem improbable, but just in the last several years we’ve seen it play out time and again all over the world, albeit in situations limited in time and scope. Hurricane Katrina and over 50,000 people stranded at the New Orleans Super Dome with no water, Hurricane Sandy and starving individuals rumaging through garbage cans to find a morsel of food, and various other natural and man-made disasters are an eye-opening testament to what happens when the improbable becomes reality. Just a few weeks ago we saw what the […] Read More
