I always here people say they're going to head to the woods when TSHTF, but most of these areas are federal or state run properties. There will be choppers overhead Which will be able to spot a campfire from miles away. And as you, and your group, slumber in your make-shift tents for the night, you're going to be awakened and blinded by a dozen soldier/cops with AR-15's and flash lights. FORGET IT.
Remember how they were able to keep people out of the national forests during the government shutdown? Well magnify it a thousand times. There's going to be task forces patrolling the streets and enforcing curfews, day and night air patrols over all the state and federally owned lands.
Foret about roaming the streets looking for supplies too. Especially if your armed!
And if you so much as fire a single shot in your house, for ANY reason, you're going to have a swat team busting down your door, and you'll be handcuffed in front of your family and taken to a detention center.
Contrary to the Hollywood movies, it's going to be a quiet Country. Maybe sporadic shootings, but after people see how the police/ and military react, they'll settle down real fast.
So you have three choices. Stay in your community. Stay at a detention center, or die in a shoot out against the police and military. All this other rogue survival nonsense is fantasy.
I don't disagree with your thoughts in toto, but I do think we need to remember that law enforcement, especially local police and sheriffs, are residents of the local areas, with families who will also be suffering. While "duty" will call and they will respond for a time, if things get bad enough, they will take care of their families first. Of course, that reasoning doesn't necessarily apply to the military...edit on 31-1-2014 by RidgeWalker because: grammar
This guys a blow hard.
That is all.
Google "Foreign Troops on US Soil" - now do i totally believe it - nope but people claim up to 400K Russian, Chinese, UN Blue Helmets etc. in the US. It's a big country plenty of places to hide them.
Today the man who remarkably predicted months ahead of time that the Fed would taper in December, and then again in January, warned King World News that people need to brace themselves for a disastrous global collapse and riots that will engulf the entire world. He also discussed exactly what will trigger and then accelerate this tragic collapse and ensuing chaos.
Well the man has made some accurate predictions.
Yah! More Doom Porn!
Well I guess we had better get ready for this one.
I have spent almost my whole career in the financial sector. I'm on the technology side as opposed to the business side but I get plenty of exposure to the business. In addition, being on the technology side, I'm also privy to metric crap-tons of data. I've always had an interest in the market and I love data so I am constantly comparing the two looking for trends. Identifying trends and knowing whats coming next is critical to making money. For me it has lately been just to know how bad things are. I got out of the market completely right before the 2008 bust. It was pure luck and not a bunch of money, I'm nowhere near rich. I just so happened to be buying a house and cashed in my 401k. Six months later everyone I knew took a 30 -60% beating on their 401k. My Mom, my friends, everyone at work. Literally everyone. Half their wealth, gone. I'm sure many of you got hit as well. I thanked God I had just cashed mine out. I had been listening to Celente for a while and he was warning but I was like everyone else. Nahh, it will never happen. Maybe a bump but nothing major. Now we know different. I can tell you that many major corporations and governments hire Celente to data mine, analyze and forecast for them. In my opinion he is one of the only financial insiders worth listening to. Very few are worth their salt and I don't say that to be mean, its just that they are either ignorant to the facts or willfully ignoring the issues and in most cases I believe its the latter. They are no better than your average MSM journo. Just talking heads that say what they are told. All the while ignoring the economic impacts of Obamacare, the rampant unemployment, the Stock Market that recently topped 16,000, its highest mark ever while the massive unemployment and entitlement programs bleed the middle class dry. In the midst of all this the stock market hits its highs? Doubtful. All the money that has been printed has devalued the dollar so far that China has warned us to stop or they will no longer buy our bonds. We printed so much money to buy our own bonds and keep this fantasy alive, we alienated our biggest investor. Celente called all of this time and again, but few listen and the voices are lost because even on a site where we aim to foster truth most would rather flame each other for misspellings or other super-important issues like that. I respect everyone's opinion, but Celente is no more doom porn than than the canary that drops dead in its cage warning the miners they had better leave or suffer the same fate. He is the Edward Snowden of the financial industry except that he tells them in the boardrooms and staterooms the same thing he tells you on the radio and television. Look at all the preparations that the government is going through. Look at all the drills. The purchases of bullets, armored vehicles, FEMA camps, underground seed vaults. Who do you think warned them of what's coming? Research it a bit and you will find many times its Gerald Celente. He knows what he is talking about. We have been papering over the market for years and at some point it will collapse. As family leaders it is our responsibility to make sure that in any event our loved ones will be safe and secure. Its only prudent to be somewhat prepared when the expert that the experts call says to be. They don't pay him the big bucks because he's wrong. Think for yourself. Pray he is wrong and prep like he is right.
This guys a blow hard.
That is all.
Let's agree that he is...
Even a fool will eventually see the writing on the wall but by then it's already too late to do anything besides go with the flow at that point.
The federal reserve system is not controlling the money; they are controlling debt.
It's a big ponzi scheme like the rest of the worlds currencies which are all based on faith in government.
FRN's are just paper and cloth that we put faith in when reality it has no value.
Although I suppose you could use it a kindling to start a fire with once the SHTF.

Simply said: usury should never be allowed. Interest on loans are evil. Period.
Such a simple notion that every holy book TELLS US NOT TO DO.
