The Warning & Message

worldwar

 

Throughout the years I have come to understand a simple principle when it comes to survivalism: Some of us are sent THE MESSAGE, while others are sent THE WARNING.

 

For me, this began while I was still a young child. It began subtly, and at first I didn’t understand it. I took years, until my teens, for me to realize that I was endowed with a message, and a warning.  It changed my life then, and continues to impact it even today.

 

The Message:

It’s pretty simple. When one become aware of what is going on in the world, and understands the nature of how life will unfold in the coming years; some of us began preparations that might somehow allow us to make peace within ourselves, and perhaps even began the slow and tedious process of stockpiling some very basic essential supplies.

· Stockpiles essential supplies

· Completes basic threat research

· Talks to others on the internet for information exchange

· Devotes several hours each day to internet discussion groups

· Understands that something might happen

· Builds a basic bug out plan

· Enrolls in a self-defense class

· Talks on the internet about survivalism

· Is prepared to Bug Out when SHTF

· Maintains an adequate Bug Out Bag

 

The Warning:

This is much more serious than having heard the message. A person that hears the warning is alarmed to the point that immediate action is required. It’s a process which demands that there isn’t enough time in a day, and that there isn’t enough money in the bank to cover all the associated costs.

· Stockpiles several years’ worth of food supplies

· Completes exhaustive risk analysis

· Establishes a network with others for information exchange

· Devotes several hours each day towards fulfillment of stockpile acquisition

· Knows that something will happen

· Builds an advance evacuation plan

· Enrolls in a self-defense, first aid, and wilderness survival class

· Talks to neighbors about survivalism

· Is prepared to Bug Out before SHTF

· Maintains several advance Bug Out Bags strategically cached in different areas

 

The term “Prepper” has become repugnant to me. It denotes something that is far removed from survivalism. A prepper collects gear, and hopes nothing happens; while a survivalist stockpiles gear and knows that something will happen.

Operational Security For Survivalists

SURVIVAL_PLANNING

 

Operational Security:

Considering all of the news laws bouncing around within the justice department, the growing trend among survivalists, seems to be a gradual withdrawal from mainstream survivalism; whereby many of the groups are headed underground, and off the radar.

 

Or so they think….

 

The fact remains that every Facebook page, every website, and every internet forum has already been infiltrated, should come as no surprise to anyone. It’s how they operate these days. The problem stems from several different factors, most of which can be directly tied to a very simple premise: Many militia groups are actively portraying themselves as a survival group.

 

Additionally; Facebook is deluged with a boatload of individual preppers claiming to be survivalists, but their avatar/picture depicts something entirely different. One cannot claim to be a survivalist, and then post pictures of themselves brandishing assault rifles, flying the Gadsden Flag, or sporting the 3% Patch. This is the single-most contradictory element that quickly arouses the attention of the various investigative agencies, and sends a clear signal to the general public that all survivalists are militia, and all militia are thus survivalists.

 

If you are claiming to be a survivalist, and consequently have Facebook friends that belong to a militia group; it would seem obvious that you are sympathetic to the militia ideologies. You will be judges by the associations that you maintain.

 

If your Facebook page is chock full of anti-government tirades, or you post anti-government statements; then it’s perfectly clear that you are anti-government. Thus, you pose a threat to those in power, and perpetuate the problems in, and of itself.

 

As I have stated in hundreds of articles over the past several years; it’s okay to hate the government, it’s okay to be militia oriented, and it’s even okay to stockpile supplies, arms, and ammunition. But what will quickly get a checkmark beside your name, is if that is ALL THAT YOU POST, and nothing else.

I have nothing against militia, as a matter of fact, I wrote one of the most controversial resistance books (The Lonewolf Resistance Manual) a few years ago that got a huge checkmark beside my name. But, I used my real name, and continue to do so—because I am not afraid to say what I mean, stand up for what I believe in, and I will absolutely not slink away in fear for my political views. That would be in contradiction to what I personally believe in. It would make me less than a Man, and that will never happen. I have no false assumptions that I have a nice warm cell awaiting me, and that the “Men In Black” would dearly love to beat my ass with rubber hoses. Yet, I am cognizant that I am responsible for my own actions, and thus equally prepared for whatever the future may hold for me.

I am not afraid to call myself a survivalist, because that is the absolute truth. I have no fear of what I do, or what I will do when SHTF, because everything that I do is above reproach, and within the tenants of survivalism.

There is no need for me to wear a mask to hide my identity, nor do I feel the need to threaten the government or elected leaders. None of my survival plans are offensive in nature, nor will I ever make plans to fight other Americans. GOD will take care of those when the time comes. –Make no mistake about it; the time is coming soon. 2500 years ago everything that is happening in the world was foretold, and revealed to mankind in the Holy Bible. There is not anything that can be done about it. We are all victims to it in one way or another. The best that we can hope for, is to be right with GOD, and to prepare ourselves and our families for the tribulations that will soon arrive.

 

My survival plans dictate that I lead my family and friends to a safe place where we can maintain some semblance of our former lives. That doesn’t include executing Hit & Run tactics against the perceived enemy, or blowing up buildings—it means that I, and those that I surround myself with, do what is necessary to remain safe, well fed, and out of harm’s way.

But, should we experience a situation that forces our hands in another direction; all bets are off, and then let the chips fall where they may. I call that TOTAL WAR. It means that every man, woman, and child fights to the death for what they believe in. A perfect example would be Poland 1933 when Hitler and Stalin attacked that small country from opposing sides. Every man, woman, and child armed themselves to protect their family, and then their country.

I see it this way; as more and more people become aware of the frightening aspects of what we will face in the coming years, it becomes clear that their fright has turned to anger—because they feel helpless. They understand the forces that are allied against them, but have come to understand that they alone can little impact the outcome. Others use this as an excuse to live out some morbid fantasy that sees them as the last hope for mankind—saving the women and children from the armies of darkness; marching victorious into Washington DC as the last standing heroes of the republic.

But, reality commands that they alone have neither the capacity, or the resources to actually accomplish anything other than to get themselves killed. They will probably get their family and friends killed as well.

 

How can anyone claim to stand for the Bill of Rights, when they won’t even get off their lazy-complacent apathetic ass and head for the voting booth…!

 

So why are there so many people calling themselves survivalists prepared to fight other Americans?

Because they are just repeating the diatribe of profiteers who seek to inflame and outrage the masses with their delusional hoopla that has little merit, and even less credibility. They cite case after case, and example after example—yet fail to invoke the true spirit of the “why’s and how’s” of their self-sustaining propaganda. These are the worst of the worst, and I hold them responsible for the mass-paranoia so-prevalent within the survival movement today. But, I also hold responsible those which have bought into this bullshit, and spread it further outwards because they have been “spoon fed” these lies, innuendos, and half-truths.

 

Here’s Is The Straight and Narrow Truth—whether you believe it or not…!

ü There are more of us, than them…

ü They have neither the manpower, or the resources, to arrest, detain, and judge every survivalists in the country today…

ü There isn’t enough bed space in all of the federal properties to adequately house forty five million people, nor do they have enough guards to keep all of them locked up…

ü They don’t care how many weapons or bullets that you have, unless you begin to post anti-government bullshit on the internet…

ü If you wear a mask, and call yourself a survivalist, then it’s your own fault when they come knocking on your door in the middle of the night…

ü If your Facebook page has tons of militia and resister friends, then you will be judged by the company that you keep… (Pretty Simple Equation To Digest)

ü The Rapture and Tribulation will occur, and there is absolutely nothing that you can do about it…

ü There is unequivocally no need to threaten the federal government, or its leadership, with harm, or force of arms. Keep your dumb ass mouth shut and go about your own business. IF and WHEN the time comes that you are forced to do something—that will be the time to threaten them, not before…

ü All your stupid ass ranting, threats, and raving accomplish nothing. Zip! Nada! It inflames the masses, and makes you look like a fool—say nothing of the people that know you personally, and on-line…

ü When the “Men In Black” surround your house in the middle of the night; turn off the juice, and blow through your door to stick a MP-5 sub-machinegun in your face--you are going to lay down on the floor and do “exactly” what they tell you. You are just bullshitting yourself if you think otherwise…

ü If you think that running away into the woods will provide you a safe haven—Say the following phrase to yourself until you remember it: “That Predator Missile Is Going To’ Ruin My Fucking Day…!”

ü The government has several divisions of highly trained Special Forces troops that will eat you alive, and not blink afterwards. You aren’t Rambo buddy!

 

That my friends is the absolute truth. Either believe it, or not. I could care less either way. All of this horseshit conspiracy theories is nothing but fluff. There is no place in the survival movement for fantasies. There is no place for anarchists, rogue paramilitary groups, and unquestionably no place for people that are “weak-in-the-head” that buy into that line of horseshit.

A Word About Watchmen Of America

A Word About Watchmen Of America

There are many places on my respective websites that indicate Franke Schein, Alaska Watchmen, and The North American Survival Alliance is not associated with the Watchmen Of America (WOA) website or its affiliates in any manner whatsoever.

Though I support all aspects of the US Constitution, and the Bill Of Rights; the website calling itself Watchmen Of America is in no way connected with, affiliated with, associated with, or even remotely part of my websites—much less shares in my personal opinions and views.

What really stands out, is that this website, and many of its members claim to be survivalists, and are actively recruiting new members to learn survival skills. Yet; it is abundantly clear that the website is about as close to survival, as trying to breed cats with dogs. The administrators of this website are aware of the rising concern regarding civil preparedness, and are blatantly using distraction in a foul attempt to deceive people into joining their cause. This website is a militia website, with very close ties to the sovereign citizen movement, as well as racist organizations that make no qualms about their ideologies.

Their particular website, as well as every associated chapter thereof, has been included in the Southern Poverty Law Center’s list of militia groups. Additionally, many of the chapters of WOA ascribe to the ideologies persistent within the Sovereign Citizens movement, as well as many of the radical white-power ideologies, Jew-hater groups, and other assorted racists organizations—none of which I agree with, endorse, or claim as my own. As a matter of fact, I oppose everything these groups espouse.

The administrator operating the Watchmen Of America website falls into several of the aforementioned categories by virtue of the members, and organizations that he supports and displays on the website. The fact that he is operating this “for-profit” website stands in stark contradiction to the established regulations imposed by The Social Security Administration, and other public assistance agencies at both the Federal and State levels within his home state.

Additionally; the WOA website claims to be a “Militia Support Group” providing, uniforms, gear, equipment, firearms, and training to its members. When in fact very little of these services and products have actually been delivered to the members that have paid for it. Over the last year, there is a growing number of people and groups that have withdrawn their support and participation in this fraudulent scheme because the contractual obligations have not been delivered as promised.
Those few members that have received some of the promised gear, quickly found that the cheap imported products from Asia are of inferior quality, do not hold-up under field use, and are generally worthless. There remains a growing dissatisfaction within this area.




One only has to glance at the various webpages throughout this shameful website, to see the many “donations” buttons begging for money. On nearly every page, the administrator is begging the membership and viewing public for cash donations. Oftentimes, there are products, videos, books, calendars, and other offers for sale, that have been illegally obtained through copyright infringement, or outright theft from the internet, and its respective owners. Many examples can be found within the Patriot Resistance Website, as well as the Watchmen of America domain.


The original image can be found here:

A letter is being drafted to the Kentucky Attorney General’s Office as well as the United States Attorney General, in order to communicate concerns regarding the illegal contracts offered by the administrator(s) of WOA and its associated websites. Particularly, the absence of any arbitration agreement in the event of contract default, as well as notarization by a legitimate state licensed agent. These two areas should be cause for alarm when entering into contractual agreement with this organization. The absence of these two areas thereby invalidates their contracts with current and former members that have participated in this scandalous program.

Of even more concern, are the many reported instances whereupon the administrator refuses to refund money paid by the members who are desirous of cancelling their agreement with WOA. This alone, contradicts every know concept of business ethics, as well as various laws and regulations, and may in fact, eventually lead to a class action law suit, if not the outright criminal charges being brought against the website and its administrator’s, as well as any serving officer having complicity within the scope of this fraudulent program.

Additionally, there exists no public records of any business enterprise calling itself Watchmen of America, Patriot Resistance, nor does any such business entity exist within the State of Kentucky, or registered under the Internal Revenue Service. Perhaps, the additional income realized by the website administrator is not being reported, nor are the various local subsistence/welfare agencies being advised of the additional income sources experienced by the administrator through the operation of this on-line business venture.

Perhaps, if the truth were to be known; that all of the donations are merely a scheme perpetuated at the hands of the website administrator whose only goal is to increase his personal income levels, and live large at the expense of the website members who are oblivious to the manner in which they are being fleeced by a slick charlatan in poor health hiding additional income from the IRS and other agencies.

I suspect, that in time, those involved in this heinous scam, will be called to the carpet to answer for their actions. Let us all hope that this day arrives sooner—before yet another person is conned into “donating” their hard earned cash.

Societal Collapse:

In a recent posting I discussed the probabilities, and ramifications of what could happen to America during an economic collapse.

Using historical events as a basis for my research, it is very easy to understand what America is facing. If Greece is but just one example, then we as a nation will be facing some very tough times

in the coming months.  Another economic collapse could stall every industry in America, and like a dark cloud—hang across the country for several years before slowly experiencing a return to

normalcy.

Nightmare foretold if Greece heads for euro exit

In Athens, the homeless are on the streets in growing numbers, soup kitchens feed twice as many people as a year ago, and the poor are diving into garbage bins in search of scrap they can sell.

Greece is close to breaking point as it struggles with austerity targets set by creditors, but this is just a foretaste of the nightmare of unrest, hunger and even anarchy that could engulf the debt-crippled nation if it is forced out of the euro.

If the exact economic impact of such a move is hard to nail down - newly issued drachmas devalued by up to 70 percent, runaway inflation, a banking meltdown, a collapse in trade - the implications for ordinary Greeks crushed by the debt crisis are even harder to predict.

Without international bailout cash, salaries and pensions would go unpaid and violence, political extremism and uncontrolled emigration could quickly follow.

"NIGHTMARE SCENARIO"

"There will be shortages in basic staples. Without fuel, the army and the police would not be able to move their vehicles. After a long period, things will return to a better balance. But during the first transitional phase we would be experiencing a nightmare scenario," Provopoulos said.

Survival Test:

Yellowstone (Super Volcano) Eruption

By Franke Schein

Copyright 2012 All Rights Reserved

 

Synopsis:

At 11:18 pm seismic detectors located through Yellowstone National Park indicate that a massive earthquake swarm continues to increase with each hour. Hot springs and fumarole temperatures swing upwards, Large swatches of land immediately rise, while other areas sink into the ground creating large holes.

National Geological Survey Agencies remain quiet, though a steady stream of government vehicles begin pouring into the area. Base camps are established as far away as Rock Springs and Evanston Wyoming.

At approximately 02:21 AM local time; Yellow Stone Caldera erupts with frightening consequences.

Fiery boulders the size of semi-trucks are blown skywards. The initial eruptions sends massive amounts of thick ashes 18-Miles into the skies.

The resultant Pyroclastic flow wipes out every city within 100-miles around the volcano. Roads, bridges, houses, and millions of acres of woodlands are instantly vaporized—along with several hundred thousand people. Wildfires rage across large portions of Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. Smoke clouds darken the skies in those areas.

Within hours the ashes begin drifting downwards into the unaffected areas 300 miles away. Already the countryside is blanketed in 14-inches of volcanic ash. Scientists predict that most of central America will begin experiencing ash fall within twelve hours.

As the eruption continues unabated, the ashes reach into the upper trade winds, sending dark clouds heading towards Europe. All airlines cancel their flights, maritime shipping comes to a halt, and life on the planet slowly begins to wind-down in anticipation of what is yet to come.

Survival Test:

1.) What are the short and long term consequences of a Yellowstone Caldera eruption, and how would it affect you, and the people in your area?

2.) What preparations have you taken to counter this imminent threat?

3.) If you are unfortunate enough to live within 600 miles of Yellowstone, what will you do to save your life?

4.) What is the safest area in the United States during a Super Volcano eruption, such as Yellowstone?

5.) Do you feel that this scenario will affect you personally?

Survival: Moral Imperative

Moral Imperative

By Franke Schein

May 17th 2012

All Rights Reserved

Over the last few weeks my telephone has been ringing off the hook, and the email messages keep pouring in from around the world. It seems that a boatload of people are worried—seriously worried about what the immediate future will involve.

From the newbies just coming into the movement, to the hard-core survivalists; the questions are nearly the same:

· What will happen

· When will it happen

· How can I get ready for it

Let’s take this in a step-by-step approach in order to arrive at some logical answers.

“What Will Happen?”

I personally feel that an economic collapse is not only imminent, but that we are staring down into the dark abyss. One only has to look deep into what this collapse could mean to each of us down here on the streets.

Already the American Dollar is severely undercut. Several (hostile) state-players are doing their very best to destabilize the US Dollar, and by proxy, the economic livelihood of about 300-Million American Citizens. That fact alone, should send shock waves throughout the media, but the politically correct “talking heads” aren’t saying much about it. Political power play is most evident in this massive network silence. The reason is very simple: Every network is desirous of having a few key reporters sitting in the Whitehouse; speaking out against the administration’s foreign polices does little to insure a front row seat in the Whitehouse Press Room. Their silence is both a travesty towards America, and reeks to the high heavens of media bias for the sake of corporate profiteering.

The short and long term ramifications of an economic collapse are frightening. One only has to look backwards into the history of America, and the world, to see how this event will play out in our lives. Imagine a 1930’s style Depression, but on a much larger scale.

Capital manufacturing takes a plunge. Only those industries with guaranteed government contracts will remain. Many of the brand name factories and their distributors will fall by the wayside. The corporations growing, or distributing food products will fare well because people still need to eat. Of course the consumer prices will rise sharply, and the supply-side of the equation will come into play as the demand outsources the inventory and production values.

Critical fuel supply production will likewise take a nose-dive down into the abyss. Just like 1930, the price of gasoline will skyrocket until it is almost out of reach for most Americans. The government’s strategic reserve will have to be tapped, and in the long term it could result in a “rationing” of gasoline and other critical fuels. Ask your grandparents about “ration cards” and what all of that meant to them.

Once the manufacturing base goes down the crapper; other consumer supported industries will fail in less than three months.

Cellphone and Wireless carriers, as well as internet based services will struggle to remain afloat, and then eventually go bankrupt. Those carriers that manage to survive the first two quarters will have little choice but to raise prices. Again, the “supply and demand” will enter into the equation. Many families will have no choice but to disconnect from the internet, turn off their wireless devices, and return to a pre-technological mode of communications.

The good news; thousands of new car dealers will face bankruptcy, and the prices of new cars will plummet. Dealerships do not own the cars, they are just the purveyor of manufacturers finished products. Those with ample cash and get some rock-bottom prices—pennies on the dollar.

Of course; as usually happens, the greedy utility companies will reap tremendous profits. The cost for electricity, water, sewage, and natural gas will go through the roof. Imagine being forced to pay 500% more than what is paid right now. Expect this industry to profit at America’s misfortune—as they already are doing.

The nation’s financial industry will take a huge hit. The Dow Jones and other indexes will see a drastic drop in prices. Investors will panic, raise the prices, experience an immediate deficit as the S&P index falls to the basement. Investment accounts, 401K’s, Long-Term saving, as well as Mutual funds will wither and die a horrible death.

Local credit unions, and banks will likely fail in the first few months. The Mega-Banks will be forced to raise fees, and charge for every conceivable service that the bank offers its customers. As more and more banks fail, there will probably be long lines at the bank doors as panicked citizen try to get their cash back into their pockets. It could very well result in the Federal Reserve System installing protocols that limit the amount that can be withdrawn from respective consumer bank accounts. This will signal a massive financial collapse as banks are deluged with angry customers. It will probably get bloody at some point, and national guard troops could be stationed at the bank in order to keep the peace.

The Federal Reserve will be struggling to maintain an equitable balance within its own rank and file. Expect to see a reduction in the amount of money flowing back and forth as people turn towards a barter system. The black market will swing into action. Those with barter goods will fare reasonably well, but those that are unprepared will suffer badly.

Gold will take another hit. Those that have stockpiled gold as a hedge against severe inflation will be in a shock for their life. Those $1,600.00 good coins that were purchased last year, will go quickly. Expect to shell out a gold coin for simple things like gasoline, rice, bullets, beans—and other consumer commodities.

Welfare will become the norm, and the already overburdened state subsistence agencies will turn to the federal government for assistance. Schools lunch programs, Medicare and Medicaid will follow suit. Our senior citizens will feel the brunt of the collapse. Their $1300.00 a month stipend payment will be reduced as the consumer price index rises—their low dollar income-buying power will have drastic effects on senior’s purchasing power. Faced with increasing utility payments, undervalued buying power, and reduced social welfare assistance; many senior will choose to leave this world at their own hands. The nightly news reports will be filled with stories of suicide until the public becomes desensitized to these occurrences.

Across the country there will be a sudden increase in crimes against people and property. Looting will follow suit, along with rioting as angry-hungry people take to the streets. Bloodshed, and vigilante justice will take shape almost overnight. The “hanky stomping liberals” will quickly be faced with a choice of “correctness” or perish in the onslaught.

When the crime finally peaks, there will be a mass exodus from the cities. Armed groups will dominate the news, and eventually the local government will be forced to institute both a curfew, and martial law.

Civil disobedience will quickly come into play as heavily armed people take matters into their own hands. The price of ammunition, firearms parts, as well as the costs of guns themselves will skyrocket. Local gun stores and those department stores still having ammo inventories, will be quickly depleted. In some cases, the local government will have no choice but to seize and confiscate all firearms and ammunition. They will claim this measure is to keep the peace—in fact, it will only give rise to increased anarchism.

All in all; the average American will be facing severe difficulties. The loss of the financial system, manufacturing capability, as well as the decrease in consumer commodities, will, when combine with the loss of jobs, reduced buying power, and the destruction of the banking system—create a welfare state wholly dependent upon government assistance, social charity agencies, and leave people facing a world of criminal dominated nights where safety means being armed and alert.

But, there are others factors to consider beyond a total economic collapse. Events such as another terrorist attack, severe weather phenomenon, or natural disasters resultant of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, or tsunamis, could plunge a large portion of the country into a dismal state . Events such a this could impact the economy outside of the localized areas—thus sending shockwaves throughout the region, as was the case during Hurricane Katrina.

“When Will It Happen?”

There is not one single person on the globe that can predict this eventuality with any certainty of precision. There are many factors at play, any exigent circumstances across the global arena has the potential to ignite catastrophes whose far reaching effects could reach Americas shores.

One of the significant discoveries centers around the fact that Illegal immigrants are fleeing back towards Mexico at an alarming rate. Yet, the birth of Hispanic children has risen sharply to the point that current index indicates that the Hispanic population in America has reached the all-important mark of 36%. It is predicted that by 2050 the Hispanic population will achieve a 56% index, thereby impacting the economy through reduced literacy, sub-standard wage scales, and loss of employment opportunities, as well as a closely related increase in Hill-Burton (type) medical loss experienced by hospitals around the country.

Severe weather has already wrecked large swatch of the country during the first five months of 2012. If this is the matrix to measure the next seven months that will follow; then America will be facing an increasingly dangerous world.

“How Can I Get Ready?”

As I have addressed throughout the last several years, it is imperative that survivalists come together in their respective areas. Small groups have a much better chance of getting through these calamities, than the “Lone wolf Survivalist” trying to get through each day all alone.

Having a large supply stockpile is absolutely outstanding, but it should be remembered that a family of four will have no chance against a small rouge group of anarchists intent on taking the stockpile by force of arms. One person cannot hope to stand against those odds. It requires the combined efforts of an extended “survival family” that has taken the time to research, strategize, plan, and prepare for these types of situations.

It must be remembered that primitive survival skills are a useful tool in the survivalists toolbox, but it must not be the only plan. If this is the case, failure is definitely imminent and non-withstanding from the onset. A survival plan should take into account the necessity of supplementing the food supplies with fresh meat and vegetable, but there are events that will preclude this.

· Volcanic Eruption

· Tsunami

· Wildfire

· Civil Unrest

· Martial Law

· Radiological Disaster

· Biological Disaster

· Chemical Disaster

I have talked about the need for a reality based survival plan that takes into account every conceivable scenario, every possible disaster, as well as a deep level of comprehension and understanding of what each requires in terms of surviving, as well as knowing how these events will unfold step-by-step.

Failure to plan, is not an option when survival is at stake. There can be no minimizing the threats or any aspects of it, no delusional fantasies, and a good survival plan leaves absolutely no room for assumptions based on fictional scenarios.

The North American Survival Alliance is the product of my own attempt to allow other people to experience a level of survival planning, as well as execution of those plans within the scope of reality.

In the last year the membership has grown throughout the country. But, there should be lots of people signing up. It is after all a no cost mechanism designed to help everyone get ready for whatever Man and Nature offers in the future. But I fear that most “preppers” out there are simply put—imposters pretending to be survivalists.

Survival panning dictates a constant research of resources, technologies, tools, and other aspects which enhance or better an already good survival plan. But the trend seems to have turned towards collecting gear, stockpiling weapons and ammunition, and getting caught-up in all of the conspiracy theories that are destroying the survival movement from within.

I choose to remain outside of that arena, and continue to surround myself with capable and dedicated survivalists (Not Preppers) that understand the message and warning that we have been blessed to hear throughout most of our lives.

If you have heard the message, and know the warning; then I am happy to call you a friend. Now take the time to reach out across the horizon and get in touch. Time is not your friend—my friend.

Survival Underground: Are you skeered

394042_347576951936315_100000520392689_1315989_1889722334_n

 

It’s uncanny the number of people and groups that have headed underground to bury themselves from the mainstream survival movement; due to some false assumption that Big Brother is watching them, and awaiting the opportunity to swoop in and snatch them from their beds.

Why On Earth Would They Do That?

 

Lets get something straight right now: They do not have the manpower, resources, or funding, to locate, identify, and catalog every survivalist or group operating the the country today—we number something along the lines of 45-MILLION PEOPLE.

 

Where is This All Coming From?

It is the result of sensationalism at the hands of a select group of paranoid delusionals that need to create controversy and strife in order to further perpetuate their own image of self-importance—because they have nothing else to offer…

These are the people that generally talk-the-talk, but have no clue how to walk-the-walk; the kind that thrives under the spotlights of attention, and that is all that they have in their repertoire of skills and experiences—lip service.

 

Real survivalists don’t give a rats ass about what the feds are doing. They go about the business of survival with a determined outlook, a straight-hitting reality based plan that takes into account all of the possibilities, and no amount of sensationalism will deter them from the plans that they have made. It’s the people that don’t have a plan that will suffer.

 

FACT CHECK

The Federal Bureau of Investigation employs approximately 30,00 people. The FBI is the leading agency tasked with domestic investigation. NO OTHER AGENCY carries that responsibility, or has congressional authority to investigate the citizenry of America.

 

The National Security Agency: Though the number of personnel are classified; the NSA is the worlds leading edge cryptographic intelligence agency. It remains the forerunner within the electronic surveillance arena. 

Fusion Centers: These are part of the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) which is tied at the waits to Department of Homeland Security (DHS). These centers are designated to monitor groups, websites, forums, and electronic media, in order to ascertain whether a domestic terror plot exists.

Trucking Denuded

321655_306082302752447_100000520392689_1185732_69029701_n

 

Having spent a number of years in Alaska, and then returning to the Lower-48 to work, I was utterly shocked at what has happened to the trucking industry down here since my absence. It’s simply appalling what has is going on out here, and I am shocked that the mega-carriers with all of their fancy lawyers and lobbyist, have allowed this tragedy to occur. The trucking industry has been castrated, denuded, and has become a train-wreck on a collision course with the future. It’s no wonder that the trucking industry has lost a quarter of a million experienced professional truck drivers.

The new ( so called) safety  laws are nothing more than yet another example of regulatory control imposed by a cadre of power-hungry paraprofessionals that are out of touch with reality. A reality which exists only in their minds, and is far removed from the realities of mainstream America.

Only in their minds can they sleep at night knowing full well that these laws are nothing short of absurdly insane, and will have absolutely no effect whatsoever within the realities that they have conjured up in their fragile minds. Let’s face facts, well documented facts. Most accidents involving commercial vehicles and passenger vehicles are the fault of the passenger vehicle’s driver. Not the other way around. So the safety aspect of these new laws just went out the window.

Exploring the new CSA, and what it means to carriers, as well as their drivers; represents the foulest of all monopolies that exists; slight-of-hand tactics designed to reach deep into the wallets of the carriers, and their individual driver-employees. These “smoke and mirror” tactics are not based upon safety, they exist to generate revenues in order to further perpetuate the existence of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. They, like other government agencies must establish and uphold their own existence, as well as show profitability while completing their assigned responsibilities. In fact, it has become so bad, that the FMCA should replace the American Eagle emblem depicted on their official logo, with the US Dollar Emblem.

No other industry in America forces a worker to be paid less than minimum wage; yet demands a 70-Hour work week with no provisions for over-time pay. No other industry in America forces a worker to work 14-Hours each day, without the benefit of a mandatory rest period. Yet each day millions of professional drivers are forced to adhere to these insane working conditions. Migrant farm laborers have more protection under the various minimum wage laws, and their respective labor laws, than the trucking industry does. An industry which insures the movement of the country’s gross national products on a global scale.

Truck drivers holding a commercial drivers license, are forced to adhere to more regulatory compliances than a commercial passenger jet pilot does. Each and every infraction is regulated to the point that the Constitutional provision of double jeopardy, and self-incrimination have been forced out of the equation. In no other industry can the authorities force a worker to produce evidence of guilt or misconduct, without a subpoena or warrant. Yet truck drivers have to produce not only a log book upon demand, but are also required to produce their fuel receipts, load documentation, as well as any electronic records stored within on-board computer systems.

A decade ago the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration passed legislation which made it illegal for a professional driver to have a radar detector in a commercial motor vehicle.  The radar detector issue was touted as having the potential in reducing the number of highway related fatalities. In fact, the reality of this new regulation brought an immediate and discernible increase in the revenues experienced by the state, and their respective counties and municipalities. That, and in itself, was the scope and intent of the radar-detector law, and it worked. Violation revenues increased to the point that various State Police Departments across the country, saw an immediate surplus of funds at fiscal year’s end. A high percentage of those funds were invested in new patrol officers and their police cruisers; who immediately went about the State’s business of traffic control—generating even more revenues, to the point that many State Police Departments became self-funding, and experienced phenomenal further growth of their surplus revenues.

The next step appeared in the form of yet another foul safety procedure: As each state increased the speed limit for passenger vehicles from 55 MPH to 65 MPH, the legislators decided that since most trucks are governed within the 65 mile per hour range; the loss of violation revenues would be problematic. Thus, while passenger cars roared across the interstate system at speed reaching upwards toward ninety; professionals drivers faced even stiffer fines if caught exceeding the speed limit by more than 6 miles an hour. Fines that were already out of control nearly doubled.

The next measure introduced the 12 Mile Per Hour Rule: If a CDL holder was caught driving over the speed limit by 12 MPH, the penalties were severe.  67 Miles and Hour in a 55-Zone resulted in a hefty fine, the administration of 5-7 Points on the driver’s record; and in many cases a suspension of the drivers license. This new law was designed to intimidate the trucking industry's driver work force. It did not affect any of the safety indexes, nor did it reduce the number of crashes, or crash fatalities within the transportation industry. In fact; the number of Truck-Car crashes increased dramatically due to a serious flaw in regulatory thinking—Slow moving trucks impeding the traffic flow resulted in a higher number of passenger vehicles slamming into commercial vehicles. All the while, the violation revenue base steadily climbed upwards into the state treasury coffers at an alarming rate. As is usually the case; the safety conscious public was duped again. Reports flowed in from across the country depicting the high number of car-truck crashes; it was one of those “See, we told you so” moments, and the public bought into the lie.

Now were are seeing the ultimate travesty playing out right in front of our noses. The Safety Hungry public wants trucks, and their drivers that operate within strict guidelines. It doesn’t matter that most new car television commercials show fast cars overtaking slow trucks, nor does it matter to these same safety conscious people are the one’s still slamming into trucks, cutting them off in traffic, or racing helter-skelter between exit ramps. What matters is that the huge trailer is blocking their view of the highway—and that is a situation that must be controlled. After all; they did pay their taxes last year, and what right does that big truck have in impeding their view, and holding up the flow of traffic when everybody is screaming to work at ninety miles an hour.

 

It’s absurd to be forced to drive for nearly eleven hours straight, because under these ludicrous laws, no longer can a trucker pull over near rush hour, and take a 2-3 hour nap. This creates unfavorable rush hour traffic, and demands that the driver remain seated throughout the fourteen hours while the proverbial clock is ticking away.

The Carrier Safety Act is nothing less than a symbol of ultimate government control. It stinks to the high heavens of judicial injustice at a level previously unheard of. It represents the culmination of a new breed of administrators who clearly have little understanding of the intricacies involving the cross-country distribution of consumer commodities, much less the needs and requirements of a truck driver that keeps the Gross National Product flowing from coast to coast, and sea to shining sea. As long as the carriers, drivers, and trucking association remain mute and docile on these matters, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration will continue to dog the transportation industry with regulations and operating criteria which ultimately will destroy it from within.

Sustainability

Okay, lets explore something that should be on everyone’s mind:

 

A massive Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) just swept the planet’s electrical grid.

  • Power Grid is down
  • Car stop running
  • Computers are totally fried
  • Cell phones are burnt out
  • Television is a thing of the past
  • Airline travel is restricted to the government
  • The government has seized control of all grocery distribution centers
  • Armed guards/national guard are positioned at every grocery store
  • Martial law has been declared on a National level
  • Firearms are outlawed
  • Farm based agricultural industries receive the highest priority as critical infrastructure realignment
  • Schools are temporarily suspended
  • Gas stations are off-limits, and guarded

IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT THE ELECTRICAL GRID IN YOUR AREA WILL BE DOWN FOR AT LEAST 1-YEAR

 

Examine this scenario in depth, and determine how you and yours will survive during the next twelve months.

How long will your current food supply last until it runs out?

How will you purchase supplies when your stockpile starts to erode?

What method will you utilize to insure a steady food supply exists?
