Skip to comments.McGrath: “Somebody In Government Is Afraid Of What Is Coming”

Were talking scenarios much more severe than the Great Depression.
But this isnt just happening in America. Switzerland recently engaged in war games that simulated an economic collapse scenario, as well as an invasion by bankrupted nations and millions of refugees. In 2011, the British government developed plans to evacuate their citizens from European countries in expectation of monetary and economic crisis.
The exercises and drills may be compartmentalized so that most who are partaking in them dont really know why, but there are those in the higher echelons of power that know very well what the end game is going to be.
None of this is a coincidence.
If you arent taking steps to prepare for a new paradigm one plagued with destitution, riots, starvation and bloodshed then you are going to be a victim of whats coming.
Gordon Brown is right. When the economic system breaks down or the dollar collapses food, fuel, and medicine will be nearly impossible to acquire. The experience of Greeks, who saw this first hand, is a perfect example.
The only option for the government at that point will be to control the looting and violence that follows by declaring Martial Law and locking this country down.

Unfortunately, it is difficult to take something called shtf.com reliable. It sort of does reek of someone who desperately wants to believe things are going to hell.
Not saying for sure that the fit won’t hit the shan in our lifetime. No, not at all. But reports like this don’t come off as particularly reliable even relative to our beyond atrocious MSM.
go to Youtube and watch the first episode of “Connections”
when SHTF, the thing you will need most is.... a PLOW
Theres a Great Storm coming everyone is feeling it and its one of the reason everyone is on edge. Deep down the alarm bells are ring the nerves on on edge and the mind is unsettled.
Its your choice you can prep or you can stand around on a bridge waiting for FEMA to bring you a bottle of water, a MRE, a warm blanket and a kiss for your boo-boo and maybe you can even get your picture as you stand there on the national news.
Any one with half a brain can look around and see for themselves what is happening right before their eyes.
So listen to what the bible says: A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it. NIV Proverbs 22:3
One of the things Selco covers in this article is the fact that many will not accept that a breakdown is occurring even as they watch it happening before their eyes. Why dont they realize it? Its caused by a condition called Normalcy Bias a mental state people enter when facing a disaster.
It causes people to underestimate both the possibility of a disaster occurring and its possible effects. This often results in situations where people fail to adequately prepare for a disaster, and on a larger scale, the failure of governments to include the populace in its disaster preparations. The assumption that is made in the case of the normalcy bias is that since a disaster never has occurred then it never will occur. It also results in the inability of people to cope with a disaster once it occurs. People with a normalcy bias have difficulties reacting to something they have not experienced before. People also tend to interpret warnings in the most optimistic way possible, seizing on any ambiguities to infer a less serious situation.
A good article on Normalcy Bias is on our own ChocChipCookies Blog The Survival Mom:
You either prepare and stand on your own beholden to no one or you become dependent on others to provide your basic needs and become their serf. Me I dont want to be beholden to anyone for providing what is needed for me and mine. I certainly dont want to have to kiss some gubberment third class bureaucratic to try and coax some help from them, I dont want some jack booted thug herding me in line and telling me where to stand, sit, eat or sleep. And last but not least I dont want to be shut up in with a bunch of zombies and have to worry about not only trying to get basic necessities but having to fight to keep what I manage to get.

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, cash (I myself have been putting up change for the past few years both for the metal content and the fact that using change to make what purchases you can will move you down the the list of possible marks during shtf), 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.
Again I like to recomend FReepers ChocoChipCookie Blog The Survival Mom (Please Blog Police let this one slide!) Where you can get lots of useful information like:

There is no greater disaster than to underestimate danger. Underestimation can be fatal.
Freaking A ! I’m askeert too!
solar powered or crank powered music player or both?
My only concern, and the only thing that would affect me, would be disruption of Social Security. We are told that it is a trust fund, and that it would be the last to fail. Who knows?
Believe what you want that is or was a great thing about this country, but think about what’s going on our once friend Park Rangers are becoming something akin to Nazi Brown shirts. If they can be so easily turned, want do you think the members of the DHS are willing to do?
How about a government that thinks inflation is good for the economy?
Just what kind of drugs are you on? LOL!
I think a bit wider variety than just 2NE1, some Girls Generation and others too.
Say SS stays ok, but, some of the welfare benefits for the 47% go away. You may have to fight them at your door if they decide to try and take their entitlements directly.
Oh Diana, you don't know what you got yourself into ;)
I hear that train a-coming, it’s rolling down the track
Obamacare and a train wreck, brought on by Barrack.
No, the "last to fail" will be money allocated for law enforcement and the military (the part that can deal with an insurrection, not the f-22s).
