After Armageddon — The Worst Case Scenario For Global Disaster

BY

The worst case scenario for global disaster.  “This is not a real emergency.”  The premise of the show is that a pandemic with high morbidity and mortality is sweeping across Europe, South America, Russia and Southern Africa.  At first the US government doesn’t acknowledge there are any confirmed cases, but just a couple weeks after the first cases are discovered abroad, there are many affected in the US.

5 Years of TEOTWAWKI

5 Years of TEOTWAWKI

I have often thought about what 5 years of TEOTWAWKI would look like.   It is not pretty.

The most likely causes of a long-term TEOTWAWKI at this time include:

  • Magnetic Pole Switch
  • Super Volcano leading to Nuclear Winter
  • EMP Attack or Nuclear War
  • Global Flu Pandemic
  • Global Economic Meltdown and Multi-year Economic Depression
  • Global Drought and Famine caused by climate change
  • Global Oil Shortages due to lessening production or interruption due to war

Inflation The Key Prior Indicator Towards The Next Great Depression — How to prepare

The-Great-Depression-300x300Inflation The Key Prior Indicator Towards The Next Great Depression — How to prepare

What keeps me awake at night is the prospect of a financial collapse.  Unless something dramatically changes in the world economies, I believe the next great economic depression is coming soon.  If you life in Argentina, Greece or Spain, the depression has already arrived and millions are suffering from it.  With 50% youth unemployment in Spain, cancer patients in Greece with no access to chemo drugs, or the malnutrition of Argentina’s underclass children, economic depression is real, painful, and reduces life expectancy.

Preparations for a Riot Near Your Home

Here is the dynamics in play across the world.

  • Growing populations around the world, competing for global resources
  • Shrinking arable farming land and lessening quality of soils
  • Rising salt-water sea levels and decreased availability of fresh water
  • Sovereign debt rapidly increasing to the point of economic collapse in the future
  • Rising prices of food around the world
  • Strain on government resources and budgets to provide aid to the poor and unemployed
  • A growing entitlement mentality that “I deserve my government benefits”, rather than self-reliance
  • Shrinking size of police departments around the US country, due to constraints of state and local budgets
  • A growing, pent-up angry in lower-socioeconomic groups, due to disparity between poor and rich
  • In the United States, there are pending cuts to food stamps and other welfare aid

Unprepared: What Do You Think Would Happen If A Greek-Style Crisis Hit America?

Unprepared: What Do You Think Would Happen If A Greek-Style Crisis Hit America?

In this article, I am going to share with you some statistics that prove that most Americans are completely and totally unprepared for a Greek-style economic crisis.  According to one recent survey, an all-time high 72 percent of all Americans are concerned about an economic downturn, and yet the amount of actual preparation that is taking place for the next economic downturn is very low.  As 2008 has faded into our memories, most Americans have been lulled into a false sense of security.  Most people seem to be far more concerned about the latest exploits and scandals of their favorite celebrities than they are about the very real problems that this nation is steamrolling toward.  Hopefully what is going on in Greece right now will serve as a wake up call, because the truth is that similar things could happen in the United States much sooner than most of us would dare to imagine.

When Surviving Is No Longer Enough

SurvivingWhen Surviving Is No Longer Enough

It seems that for many preppers survival is the end game. Everything they work for, all their gear, all Survivingtheir food, all their water, all their weapons, and all their training are for the specific goal of surviving the collapse. What many of us have not considered is the very real fact that for many, survival will not be enough. At the end of the day being isolated in small groups and living for nothing more than to survive the next day will not be enough after a relatively short time. It is the human condition to want to expand and to thrive. I would like all of you to consider what comes after survival and how we as a whole can play a part in the reconstruction of our civilization. [Read more…]

New Hampshire Proposes Ban on ‘Police State’

Police State

New Hampshire Proposes Ban on ‘Police State’

With exception to arming the state’s National Guard, New Hampshire House Bill 407 — the Police Equipment and Community Engagement Act — would bar officials from possessing any military equipment “not readily available in an open national commercial market.”

New Hampshire’s HB407 would effectively bring the state’s participation in the 1033 program to an end. The program has supplied New Hampshire localities with more than $6,000,000 in military gear, the legislation’s text states. However…

“New Hampshire cities and towns are required to repair and maintain this additional military grade hardware that consumes limited town and city funds that are needed for other functions.”

In response to increasing police militarization in the US and the cost of doing so, legislation proposed in the New Hampshire state House would implement a ban on state and local officials obtaining or using certain military weaponry acquired from the Pentagon or other sources.

 

The militarization of state and local law enforcement agencies by federal programs which are dispensing “weapons and tactics of war, with almost no public discussion or oversight.” may be coming to an end in New Hampshire. While the state is certainly low in the overall rankings of state’s which might be considered ‘police states’, New Hampshire is saying ‘no more’.

Local police forces across the United States have benefited from the militarized mindset of the post-9/11, “war on terror” era, as wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and funding from the likes of the US Department of Homeland Security have resulted in a mass proliferation of military-grade weaponry.

One way the US government distributes combat gear to local police departments is through the US Department of Defense’s 1033 program, in which the Pentagon offers hundreds of millions of dollars of surplus military equipment to police forces throughout the US.

One major problem for the cities and towns who acquire these freebies from the US government is the extraordinary high cost of maintaining the equipment (at taxpayers expense).

New Hampshire has apparently come to the realization that a ‘police state’ is not necessary and it’s just not worth it to keep and maintain equipment and weaponry that’s meant for ‘war’…
Do you think that other states will adopt this attitude? Or only just a few (or just NH)?
