Gateway Pundit ^ | January 27, 2014 | Jim Hoft

Advice or a Warning? You be the judge–

American media mogul and creator and editor of the Drudge Report, Matt Drudge issued a dire warning this weekend.

The influential conservative warned his Twitter followers “Have an exit plan…”

Drudge has access to confidential information from numerous sources inside media and politics.

STHF Plan reported, via Free Republic:

His web site may consist of just a single page, but Matt Drudge is arguably the most influential media personality in the world. Garnering nearly one billion readers monthly, the Drudge Report is able to literally shift public sentiment, making it an essential read for D.C. insiders, Wall Street professionals, and anyone who wants to stay on top of the latest global issues.

If Matt Drudge headlines a story its viral spread to millions of readers in near real-time is guaranteed.

With his established connections to critical spheres of influence that include everything from politics and government to finance and entertainment, when Drudge speaks, people listen.

Over the weekend, as noted by Steve Quayle and Susan Duclos, the self made media behemoth took to his Twitter account with a simple warning consisting of just four words Have an Exit Plan…

Have an exit plan.

Be prepared to leave your city location for greener pastures in a very short time frame, and for likely an extended period of time.

Exit from what? Ship off the coast with a nuke, the stock market, the whole country?

We need IMO a little more information Matt.

pretty vague. most prognosticators tend to be that way. It increases their likelihood of being able to say “I told you so”. I suppose it’s generally good advice regardless.

He may not be able to state what he knows.

In this manner he has said what folks who expect this sort of thing need to know.

I now it’s vague. It almost has to be if it’s serious.

I doubt it, but just about any major ripple could cause utter chaos in large cities. I don’t think most people realize what a thirty day shortage of food or water would result in.

And after all, who knows with this idiot in the White House what he may deem appropriate if there is a hitch in the get-along.

Most exit plans for when the shtf involve people trying to escape to where I am at. Which wont do the stranger any good as the 2 roads in are bordered by 3rd generation families...lots of 3rd g. offspring. And most of the libs in the valley would load up their car with family and pets and all be surprised when debit/credit cards are no longer accepted... 2 bottles of water will not last long amongst 2 adults, 2 kids, and several pets.

People tell me that showing up early in the morning (around 7:00 A.M.) at a Wal-Mart sometimes works since the shipments are off-loaded around then.

The New Testament.

Best bet in the here and now is to be prepared: beans, bullets and butter.

Precious metals: lead and brass to protect the silver and gold.

Max out your fuel storage.

Water

DON'T LIVE IN AN URBAN AREA OR ANYWHERE CLOSE TO A SIZEABLE CITY.

Not all urban areas are created equal, though, as the mobs will find out when they head to the suburbs of Dallas/Ft Worth and find out that EVERYBODY is armed to the teeth.

Yes, to about half the people in line. The shipments arrive early evening but they can’t put them out until the next day, often.

I was speaking to one of their guys. They have a nice shotgun but it’s nearly 5 bills.

Someday....

If you talk to the dept. managers they'll tell you when the trucks come in. Only thing in short supply around here is .22 LR.

You should have had your reloading and casting setups good to go by now.

I have quality new ammo ... been getting a bit here and there.

I’m generally good on 9mm but need a little range time with a new purchase. Other than that, not able to afford the other things on my wish list, lol.

Gee, I hope Matt Drudge doesn’t get Breitbart’ed or Fuddy’d.....

Guy at the mini-mart (not a gun dealer, just a "general store") next door has a 500-round ammo can of 9mm for $215 (about $0.40 a round). He also has 500-round bricks of .22 available.

His shelves used to be empty, but he's starting to fill them back up. So ammo IS available. You just might have to do some looking around.

Wal-Mart last thing I got was Winchester for $26 / 100 rounds.

Or about $130 / 500 rounds - 26cents per round. Plus tax, of course. It had been around $20-$22 / 100 rounds.

But you can usually only buy two boxes or 200 rounds per day.

Here’s another place that is recommended by several — seems out right now.

Underneath all the distracting political noise of the imaginary Republican versus Democrats contest is the harsh reality that the United States is deep in debt with its credit rating subject to change as the debt problem worsens.

The political reaction to this situation is seen in the deals between Obama and Boehner at the beginning of last year and the deal of Murray and Ryan at end of this year.

The band aids they apply involve tax increases and spending cuts simultaneously. Murray-Ryan created new taxes and cut the extended unemployment benefits and military pensions.

The real State of the Union is buried underneath all this political hype (Obama’s class warfare talk and the GOP’s anti-Obamacare crusade).

I expect the trend to get worse with new bipartisan deals that will find new ways to tax us maybe even our savings and investments along with welfare cuts and military cuts like Army divisions, Air Force air groups and Navy carriers.

The Left and the Right, Progressives and Patriots will be up in arms. I’m not sure if I see violence, I certainly don’t want it, but realistically it may be a possibility.

The piper has to be paid and its probable these band aid Uniparty deals coming our way will fail to do that......

Amen. A close friend (single female, sixtyish) asked me how to prepare. She has little money

While all the SHTF sites are helpful, many cannot do much of this stuff.

There is no better exit plan than walking closely with God - NOW! If you are not doing it now, you won’t know how to do it THEN.

Learn to hear His voice, and follow His guidance. Bathe yourself daily in scripture, be bathed in it, for it is the light that lights our path. You cannot know HIs voice apart from it, and will be open to deception and being led by your feelings. Learn to walk in faith and obedience when He guides.

There is no better preparation. All the SHTF preparations will ultimately fail as they are man’s solutions, man’s ideas, man seeking to save himself - which never works. For every SHTF solution, I can show you a way it will not work. It is vanity-of-vanities to think we can prepare without being close to the Lord, and walking closely with Him.

There have been times in China when secret home churches were infiltrated by gov. spies. What did they do to continue to gather? “Next time we meet, ask God where we are to meet through prayer.”

True believers showed up at the same place. The gov. spies? Clueless.

An example of what’s ahead.......

God bless......

Everyone on Friday saw the stock market go down 300 points.
Everyone thought this was the beginning of the end.
Monday morning came and everything was all better again.
That was the warning and Drudge doesn’t know everything.
