Posted on 08/09/2012 5:57:27 PM PDT by Kartographer
You are under assault. There is a very present danger that is facing every American citizen who listens to me right now. Every citizen of this planet who listens to me right now. You are under attack.
This is an assault on you, the American people. This is an assault on your intelligence and an assault on your freedom.
Its about a complete and total dismantling of a nation, a dismantling of a Constitution, and an implementation of control from on high, [from a] dominant financial authority overtaking this planet.
Its not coincidence that Department of Homeland Security and the government in general is picking up all kinds of riot gear.
Its because they know the collapse is coming.
They know the engineered collapse that has been papered over and caused 100 million people to be on the government dole, that has caused trillions of dollars of our future wealth being given to a bunch of bankers.
They know the day of reckoning is coming, and when it does they want 30,000 drones in the air, they want thousands of riot-ready police force on the street, and they want you bickering with your neighbor because you voted Romney, or you voted Obama.
Get it through your head, folks. If you dontt understand it by now time is running out rapidly. You need to understand. There is no change coming with Romney. There is no change coming in term two with Obama.
They dance to the tune of the same people who have not been prosecuted or brought to justice for destroying this planets economy.
There are people dying tonight because of what has happened to this economy on this planet.

Reagan was the last and pretty much the only one to launch a counteroffensive against this relentless, long-term assault on our country, freedoms, and values begun in earnest around the 1930’s and amped up by Obama.
The whole worlds economy is a house of cards just waiting for the right zephyr to send it tumbling.
If the present spending continues I dont see how we can avoid a collapse like that of Argentina ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yerKMQc7-w&feature=grec_index )but on a global scale.
But the market is up you say, yeah its up using billions in printed money in the hands of corrupted bankers, investors and their cronies. The world is now flooded with fake and faux money. The game is so rigged and now even the house is starting to lose.
When the whole thing tanks as it will what do you think the entiled class will do when they cant get their cell phones, their food stamps and EBT cards, rent vouchers and so forth.
What we will see is a much more violent version of Argentina, something I think much closer to Bosnia. American has become Balkanized and splintered, we no longer share the same basic beliefs we have become pocks of people with little in common with one another.
And many of these pockets are made up of large groups of the entitlement minded and people who believe they are owed much by others and many have already shown that they will use violence to get their due.
I see many many small business wiped out by flash mob looting, and see rape, robbery and murder for murder sake. You will see what I call pocket pogroms where yutes will think no more about killing those unlike them than most people think about stepping on a roach. That will be the test of many. Most preppers I know are Christian people and they will hesitate to do what they might have to do to stop the yutes. On the other hand the yutes wont think twice nor lose a minute of sleep, in fact they will smile and laugh about it.
Think of this quote which is one of my favorites:
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Siege of AR-558 (#7.8) (1998)
Quark: Let me tell you something about Hew-mons, Nephew. Theyre a wonderful, friendly people, as long as their bellies are full and their holosuites are working. But take away their creature comforts, deprive them of food, sleep, sonic showers, put their lives in jeopardy over an extended period of time and those same friendly, intelligent, wonderful people... will become as nasty and as violent as the most bloodthirsty Klingon. You dont believe me? Look at those faces. Look in their eyes.
On top of all who knows how many saboteurs (Islamic, Chinese etc) and sleepers have crossed our borders and are now just waiting to cause havoc.
For those who are just starting or are old hands at prepping you may find my Preparedness Manual helpfull. You can download it at:
NOTE! THIS IS A FREE DOWNLOAD. I DO NOT MAKE ONE CENT OFF MY PREPAREDNESS MANUAL!
For those of you who havent started already its time to prepare almost past time maybe. You needed to be stocking up on food guns, ammo, basic household supplies like soap, papergoods, cleaning supplies, good sturdy clothes including extra socks, underwear and extra shoes and boots, a extra couple changes of oil and filters for your car, tools, things you buy everyday start buying two and put one up.
As the LDS say When the emergency is upon us the time for preparedness has past.
Or as the bible says: A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
NIV Proverbs 22:3
Lastly this for the doubters and the scoffers.
There is no greater disaster than to underestimate danger.
Underestimation can be fatal.
I think we all see this coming. November will tell it all. People think it can’t happen here, but if America falls, the rest of the world follows.
I gotta come up with about 12k before then...
Two big things I need before the SHiFT.
*sigh*. I’m too effing broke to “prep”. I have basic bills I need to pay.
How ironic, 18+ months ago the argument of this kind of statement would’ve been considered just another tin foil hat alarm. Not today and not anymore.
Amen brother. I have trouble prepping for dinner..
I am prepping enough to be able to “sit back and watch the world burn” because I am not sure there will be anything else left to do if Obama gets re-elected...
I’m going to rely on Jesus Christ to multiply what paltry little I have saved and leave it at that. If He took care of my Salvation, why wouldn’t He take care of the lesser gifts.
The best way to prepare for the coming troubles is to get right with God.
Rest assured if they lose all hell will break loose.
Then again, who cares if they burn down their own “hoods”
I dare they darken my doorstep, they will see the front end of a 308.
Don’t let some of the conversations scare you off from prepping - spending an extra $5 per weekly shopping trip will get you off on the right foot...
$5 buys you
*5 pounds of rice (get the 1# plastic bags and store them in old coffee cans or plastic bins)
*5 pounds of beans (ditto)
*2 cans of spam
*2 pounds of iodized salt and a large can of black pepper
*10 bottles of dried onion flakes (look in the 2-for-$1 section of the spices)
**Note - all of the above have virtually unlimited storage life without any particular special handling beyond “cool, dry, space” **
Making these simple, and inexpensive, preparation purchases will put you in the proper mindset, and soon you’ll be finding bargains on additional items to flesh out your stores for little cost....
That’s the way I started, many years ago, and it’s the way I continue to this day....
God moves mountains, but bring a shovel.
What do you purchase for heat for cooking? Sternos? Interested for a possible bad hurricane season.
If you run out of Sternos, I hear that wood works even better.
You know, Kart, I've mentally moved past this election. Sure, I'll vote (not for Romney or Hussein), but however the election turns out, it turns out. Note, I've put “PREPARE” in my tag line because there is the only thing that makes sense to me now.
I don't know when critical mass will be achieved - whether that is in the near future or later on, but I can keep preparing and watching and every prep makes me safer and makes my personal world better.
I don't see any point now in wasting time trying to place blame that brought about this country's destruction. Massive debt is the reality and it will surely sink the country. War in a strategic area will hurry the sinking.
I think each of us has to be able to create our own good personal world when the rest of the country falls apart. I know your personal world will be fine and other preppers will also have good personal worlds.
What else is there to say - PREPARE.
For short-term use, I’ve got a single burner Coleman Stove that snaps right onto a a small Coleman butane tank.. I got both in Walmart sporting goods - if memory serves, it was less than $10 for the burner, and around $2.50 each for the tanks (which, when I tested it, lasted for about a week of normal cooking...)
Other options that I have for longer-term use is a 2-grate cast iron hibachi (you can burn wood chips or small wood pieces, after you run out of charcoal), and, since I live in the country, I can build a cook-shack around/over a wood fire-pit...
The trick is to get out of the “what can I buy” mindset and train yourself to look at the resources you have around you with an eye towards improvising, in extremis.... ;)
I bought one of these and an almost full propane tank for it for $8.00 at a yard sale.
Charcoal or briquets. Store in plastic trash can that have lids. Ten large trash cans, each carrying 100 lbs. of charcoal or briquets can last a year for the average family who cooks outside. That is 10 X 100 lbs.
Absolutely true -
Pr 27:12 A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished.
We shouldn’t tempt God, and like the five wise virgins, we must be wise and prepare. Matthew 25:1-9
But for the righteous, this is *also* true -
25 ¶ Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
Things ought to get real interesting come november. Regardless of the outcome, expect to see some backlash by some party. Prepare to ride out the storm, regardless of which direction it comes from.
Uncle Ike, I bought a fixture at Harbor Freight that allows refilling the small Coleman propane tanks from a 20 pounder for about $1.00 each refill. I ‘capture’ all the empty small ones I see now.
Thanks - I’ll check that out next time I go to the city.. I’ve accumulated a dozen of the small tanks over the years, but the idea of using “throw-aways” in a SHTF situation has always kind-of galled me... ;)
I haven’t had this suspicion confirmed as yet, but I think (suspect!) we’re all gonna die.
If “IT” happens the way the doomsayers say. then you wont have to pay any bills. You’ll have to survive.
I bought a Mr. Heater Cooker and a propane tank at a garage sale this summer for $15 and after I brought it home I realized it was the old style tank that isn’t adaptable anymore. I think the other guy got the better end of the deal.
The game is so rigged and now even the house is starting to lose.
People don’t understand or realize that!
All of these promises and contracts are based on interest.
It WAS NOT ENOUGH for the money grubbers to have simple contracts, so they started betting on commodity packages, derivatives, etc.
Now, with hedge funds, they are basically betting on who is gonna go broke first!
It’s gone beyond the ability of a linear or annual percentage increase in the money supply to fix. You can’t feed it fast enough.
It’s truly gotten ridiculous.
If two people walked up to you to buy your house, and one had $150,000 cash, and the other had some equity bond with a face value of $50,000,000,000 which would you take?
Think long and hard. There’s a possibility, maybe even a good chance the bond is in fact worthless.
That amounts to a collapse right there. It just hasn’t trickled down to us peons yet.
I have the adapter!!
“I think we all see this coming. November will tell it all. People think it cant happen here, but if America falls, the rest of the world follows.”
A thousand year dark age followed the collapse of the Roman Empire. We may be facing another.
Here are 3 examples, of “leaders” who ran amuck and caused the deaths of millions...
Diametrically cited as both a great “criminal” and “force for good”, Mao, referred to as both “monster” and “genius”, remains a controversial figure, with a contentious legacy that is subject to continuing revision and fierce debate.
Nationwide political campaigns led by Mao, such as the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution, are often considered catastrophic failures; while his rule is believed to have caused the deaths of 40 to 70 million people.
Severe starvation during the Great Chinese Famine, mass suicide as a result of the Three-anti/five-anti campaigns, and political persecution during both the Anti-Rightist Movement and struggle sessions all resulted from these programs.
His campaigns are further blamed for damaging the historical culture and society of China, as relics and religious sites were destroyed in an effort to rapidly modernize the consciousness of the nation.
Main article: Soviet famine of 19321933
Famine in USSR, 1933. Areas of most disastrous famine marked with black.
Famine affected other parts of the USSR. The death toll from famine in the Soviet Union at this time is estimated at between 5 and 10 million people.
The worst crop failure of late tsarist Russia, in 1892, had caused 375,000 to 400,000 deaths. Most modern scholars agree that the famine was caused by the policies of the government of the Soviet Union under Stalin, rather than by natural reasons.
According to Alan Bullock, “the total Soviet grain crop was no worse than that of 1931 ... it was not a crop failure but the excessive demands of the state, ruthlessly enforced, that cost the lives of as many as five million Ukrainian peasants.” Stalin refused to release large grain reserves that could have alleviated the famine, while continuing to export grain; he was convinced that the Ukrainian peasants had hidden grain away and strictly enforced draconian new collective-farm theft laws in response.
Other historians hold it was largely the insufficient harvests of 1931 and 1932 caused by a variety of natural disasters that resulted in famine, with the successful harvest of 1933 ending the famine.
Soviet and other historians have argued that the rapid collectivization of agriculture was necessary in order to achieve an equally rapid industrialization of the Soviet Union and ultimately win World War II. Alec Nove claims that the Soviet Union industrialized in spite of, rather than because of, its collectivized agriculture.
In particular, over one million Jewish children were killed in the Holocaust, as were approximately two million Jewish women and three million Jewish men.
Some scholars maintain that the definition of the Holocaust should also include the Nazis’ genocide of millions of people in other groups, including Romani, leftists, Soviet prisoners of war, Polish and Soviet civilians, homosexuals, people with disabilities, Jehovah’s Witnesses and other political and religious opponents, which occurred regardless of whether they were of German or non-German ethnic origin. This was the most common definition from the end of WWII to the 1960s. Using this definition, the total number of Holocaust victims is between 11 million and 17 million people.
The only thing I might worry about is the seals on the small tanks, I assume they are rubber or neoprene or something like that and don’t have an infinite life span. Because of that, the small tanks I refill I keep outside in my shed.
Take a look at this I posted:
My Ammo Can Rocket Stove
Hey Kart, loved that rocket stove you built out of an ammo can. My fiancee’ had built about 5-6 rocket stoves out of #10 cans and a couple of regular sized cans and they work great but when I showed him yours he bought two ammo cans and is upgrading our stoves.
Could be a good barter trade. I remember Selco had talking about having a set-up for refilling lighters that he used for barter business.
Thanks professional compliments are always appreciated. ;-)
I’ve seen those. How do you know when the small tank is full?
Well I have uses for the small cans, got five or six of the single mantle propane lights that screw onto the tops of the small bottles.
When the power is out, I can light my house almost as bright as when the juice is on!
Still flip the switch when I go in a room though... duh...
Also got a couple camping cooking burners that fit on the tops of the bottles.
Heck, last time when the juice was out (3 days) I was snug in front of my pellet stove (running off my generator) drinking hot coffee and eating scrambled eggs and hash browns. My neighbor even asked me pretty please if I could charge her cell phone, so I said sure...
I tell people to be prepared because if and when it hits, I DO NOT WANT to have to work with a bunch of people who are hungry or grouchy or cold or mad because they didn’t get a decent nights sleep.
People need to get with the program!!
Take a look at this I posted:
My Ammo Can Rocket Stove
I’ve been following the evolution of your stove. Cool stuff and thanks for posting.
BTW, as soon as I fired up the generator I took to wearing my sidearm...
they want 30,000 drones in the air...
I’m prepared now, but I won’t start worrying about drones until they have the first 1,000 up....
That one was from another disaster. A comet fragment impacted into the Celtic Sea:
Camp stove and propane tanks.
We have a regular 2 burner camp stove and a bigger 3 burner propane stove with small legs, and a number of 5 gallon (or is it pound?) propane tanks. And a wood cook stove but I sure hate cooking with those things in the summer. For the propane camp stoves or an outdoor campfire, a metal box oven works well; it’s small but it works, I’ve made birthday cakes in them as well as biscuits, baked potatoes, etc. Coleman sells them, may be availalbe elsewhere, I’ve gotten one at a garage sale too.
That's exactly where I got the idea.
I actually made an adapter before I found the one at Harbor Freight.
I intend to barter a refill of those little critters.
Praise the Lord and pass the ammo, I say.
