Food To Survive COVID-19 Pandemic During Quarantine | At Least 90 Days

This article was written by Ken Jorgustin from ModernSurvivlBlog.

It’s common sense. To self-isolate from a pandemic, you must have enough supplies at your home to survive the period.

It’s a life luxury to head over to the grocery store and get whatever we want. The problem is — we’ve become accustomed to that. And dependent on that. Therefore people don’t keep too much food in their homes any more (one of the reasons).

Well lets say that a pandemic comes to town. 2019-nCov anyone? Your best bet will be to self isolate from the public and other people. That means having enough food and supplies to “ride it out”. I’m not suggesting that it’s time to push the panic button yet, but I’m using this current event as an excuse to push the notion of preemptive food storage.

For how long? Hard to say. Not enough reliable data on this one yet. Though if you asked me, I would suggest thinking about the worst-case. Then you’ll probably be in better shape than most who think it will be here and gone in just a few weeks once it starts (good luck with that).

For the sake of a number, lets say 3 months.

Pandemic Survival | How Much Food Do I Need

It’s all about the calories. Balance and nutrition is important too. But lets focus on calories. Why? Because that’s the primary reality of having enough food to survive.

2,000 calories per day, per person. That’s a typical “good enough” number for most.

So how do you get a sense as to how many calories you might need (or already have) for food storage at home? It can be deceptive — in that you might think you have enough — but do you?

What if that pandemic does indeed begin to rage in your neighborhood region — and 3 weeks later you’re out of food. Meaning, you have to risk your life going out to the store to buy more (if there is more)…

Okay. Now that I’ve adequately mentioned doom-and-gloom, lets simply have a look.

I recently ran some numbers.

With the potential threat for coronavirus flaring up in the US, you might become logically concerned. “If it does”, will you be able to shelter in place for say, 3 months? I’m sure that many of you could. Speaking to the choir here… though maybe someone will read this and be helped.

Since I went through the exercise (gave Excel a good workout), I simply want to share the notion of realistically determining whether or not you you have enough food.

90 Day Pandemic Food Calorie Survival Plan

Not going to the grocery store will mean no fresh foods. But you can adapt. A few examples include the following:

  • powdered milk
  • make your own bread — have enough flour & ingredients

The assumption here is that electricity remains up (which it should). So cooking, refrigeration, or anything else requiring electricity at home will be unaffected. It’s just that you’ll have to fend for yourself at home.

To give you an idea of what you might need for 90 day food survival, here are some meal plans for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack. This is just one example to get you thinking…

I list 4 options each for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Just rotate. So each meal ingredient requirement would only be 22 days instead of 90. Then it’s just doing the math, counting calories, and putting together a shopping list.

A 3 month food inventory really is not difficult. It’s just a matter of doing. The example above is just one of nearly infinite possibilities.

Just think about what you’ll need over that time period so that you won’t have to go to the grocery store.

No fresh milk. But the milk alternative I listed is pretty good. We use it all the time.

I didn’t mention it, but eggs will last a long time in the fridge. 1 – 2 months will likely not be an issue if you bought lots of them.

Cheese too. There are about 100 calories in a slice of American cheese. It will last a long time in the fridge. So you could buy pounds of it without issue. Grilled cheese sandwiches?? Yum…

Peanuts and peanut butter have LOTS of calories. Good for survival — bad for weight management. I like PB too much, so I don’t keep it too accessible!

One 1.4L bottle of California Extra Virgin olive oil (we use this) has 12,000 calories! Drizzle it on you pasta or whatever for more caloric intake. Plus it tastes good!

Okay, this article took me a lot of time in that I literally calculated all the calories for everything, reading can labels, looking up facts — to provide a sense of relativity. My head hurts. So I’ll end here. Perhaps time for a adult beverage (lots of calories in that too  ) (use only in moderation!)

Also, I highly recommend this book to everyone. 300 pages, color, paperback. The Lost Book of Remedies is helping Americans achieve medical self-sufficiency even in the darkest times using the time-tested methods of our grandparents without spending lots of money on toxic drugs and without side effects. A great asset when doctors and hospitals won’t be available anymore. You may not be Claude Davis, but you can make use of his procedures and techniques to increase your chances of survival!

With All Hell Breaking Loose, Martial Law Is Already Being Implemented Through Out The US Over COVID 19

SHOULD THE PRESIDENT DECLARE MARTIAL LAW, GOVERNMENT POWERS SKYROCKET, WHILE PERSONAL FREEDOMS AND DUE PROCESS EVAPORATE DURING TIME OF EMERGENCY.

First, humorous memes about washing hands and hoarding toilet paper made the rounds on social media. Then sports events and concerts were canceled amid concerns of large groups of people congregating together. The NBA ended its season, followed by the NHL. Disneyland closed for the first time since 2001 (and before that, 1963). Schools closed. Churches suspended service. Grocery stores are limiting their open hours. The entire country of Italy is on lockdown. New York and California—two states with the highest concentrated number of infected—have restricted restaurants to takeout and delivery only. Many counties in those states have issued shelter-in-place mandates, while even more draconian measures could be forthwith: maybe curfews at night or suspending civil liberties under martial law, which would mean the very act of leaving home for any reason, save a few, would be treated as a crime.

Martial Law in America — Where We Stand Now

Though California governor Gavin Newsome said on Tuesday that there wouldn’t be a need for martial law, he didn’t exactly discount it: “If you want to establish a framework of martial law, which is ultimate authority and enforcement, we have the capacity to do that, but we are not feeling at this moment that is a necessity.” The apt phrase here is “at this moment.” The government might not have a need for it this week, but who knows what will transpire in the days and weeks to come. Of course, rumors and misinformation about what martial law entails has been circulating since early March, even provoking Florida Senator Marco Rubio to complain on Twitter about it, requesting that people “please stop spreading stupid rumors about marshall law. COMPLETELY FALSE.” What was also false was his spelling of martial law.

Then, What is Martial Law?

Under the strictest terms, martial law is when the government replaces civil law with military authority. This means that the United States government can use the military to enforce its will upon the populous. The military becomes the primary law enforcement agency. Under martial law, normal Constitutional freedoms and liberties (think: Bill of Rights) are suspended. On a Federal level, only the President and Congress has the ability to declare martial law, and those states that specifically ordain it in their constitutions are allowed to declare it as well.

What Rights Can Be Suspended?

Based on examples of previous declarations, martial law would be a suspension of portions of the Constitution, specifically the Bill of Rights. The confiscation of firearms, the suspension of Habeas corpus (due process), travel restrictions, road closures, strict quarantine zones, and automatic search and seizures without warrants.

Are You Ready To Go Into SURVIVAL MODE? The more people that have supplies, the less desperation and potential crime there will be

Previous Uses

One doesn’t have to look far to find examples of martial law in the United States. One of the first instances was in 1814 before the Battle of New Orleans. Andrew Jackson imposed martial law in a four-mile radius around the city. Strained tension between the Utah territory and the Federal government in 1857 (known as the Utah War) led Utah Governor Brigham Young to declare martial law for the entire territory under the fear that U.S. troops were poised to attack. Young was removed from office.

Chicago mayor Roswell B. Mason declared martial law after the 1871 Chicago Fire and placed General Philip Sheridan in charge of the whole city. The mayor lifted it after only a couple of days. The same thing happened in 1906 after the San Francisco Earthquake. U.S. troops were called in and houses were dynamited to help quell the fire (it made the fire worse).

The longest period of martial law took place after the attack on Pearl Harbor and lasted until October 1944. A Federal judge later claimed that the U.S. Army “…threw the Constitution into the discard and set up a military dictatorship.”

However, during natural disasters, like Hurricane Katrina, guns and supplies were confiscated, people were forcibly removed from their houses, and property was searched without warrants. Remember when the Boston bombers were hiding out in a Boston neighborhood? The police didn’t issue any warrants, but they certainly searched houses, sometimes against the permission of their owners.

How Likely Is Martial Law Under the COVID-19 Pandemic?

In 2006, President George W. Bush signed the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act. It revised the Insurrection Act, expanding the President’s authority to declare martial law so he can take charge of National Guard troops without authorization of the states. Nine years later, President Barrack Obama assembled a task force to create guidelines for a national police.

The government doesn’t always have to outright declare martial law. A “soft” declaration of martial law can slowly seep into play without much fanfare or announcements, especially in the wake of a disaster such as COVID-19. For example, “I would call out the military now,” former Vice President Joe Biden said at the Democratic primary debate on March 15. “They have the ability to provide this surge that hospitals need. They have the capacity to build 500 hospital beds and tents that are completely safe and secure.” New York Governor Andrew Cuomo suggested, “At this point, our best hope is to utilize the Army Corps of Engineers to leverage its expertise, equipment and people power to retrofit and equip existing facilities — like military bases or college dormitories — to serve as temporary medical centers,” he wrote.

Although both of these examples are for well intentioned reasons, they are, technically examples of martial law.

What to Expect Under Martial Law?

If full-blown martial law is declared on a national or even local level, the worse-case scenario will be an environment where the Constitution no longer exists. You will have no rights, to the extent that if you speak out against the government, you will face serious consequences. There will be no free press, only propaganda controlled by the government. Further, guns will be confiscated. The right to assemble denied. Expect checkpoints and tightly controlled travel. The government could also lock the boundaries of your town.

Might this all sound like extreme circumstances, and how could a government based on freedoms and generations of liberty do such a thing. The government will do what is necessary to maintain peace and order during times of National Emergencies. Don’t believe it could happen to you? Ask the 120,000 Japanese-Americans who were denied their freedom, property, and way of life under Executive 9066 in 1942 to 1945.

How to Survive Martial Law in America.

Martial Law – The system of rules that become reality when the military takes over the regular administration of justice in a land.
Okay, let’s say that the scenario that seems so possible actually happens. The United States is attacked with a weapon of mass destruction. A major U.S. city — possibly Washington D.C. — goes up in a mushroom cloud.

Or, perhaps this hits closer to home at this present moment – a national emergency is declared as a new viral pandemic spreads rapidly and gets out of control.

Don’t think that can happen?

If you’re on this page near to the time I updated it (March 21th 2020), the idea of martial law definitely seems like a possibility. It has been discussed by politicians including Marco Rubio (who caused a minor controversy by completely misspelling the word). Even though the context was that Rubio was denying that it was a possibility, the fact that such a denial was necessary in the first place suggests we are closer to martial law today than we were two months ago.

If the pandemic situation here in the USA gets a lot worse (with a death toll in the tens or hundreds of thousands or more), or if some other crisis scenario were to occur (e.g a nuclear or biologica/chemical attack, or a massive supervolcano eruption)… Then the possibility of martial law increases substantially. While we’re still far from that point, it makes sense to educate yourself on the possible scenarios (and how to keep your family safe and sound even in these kinds of circumstances).

Enter Martial Law

These kinds of major crisis situations would almost certainly result in a period of Martial Law. With so many threats and theories about America’s collapse, the U.S. government is likely to take extreme steps in a last ditch effort to hold on to power and order, as all hell breaks loose across the land.

What Martial Law Might Look Like In The United States

First, martial law has been looked at in several films, etc. Along with this, no one really knows exactly what it would mean as the way it would take hold would differ depending on the circumstances. But in a situation of great crisis, we might expect some or all of the following measures to be taken:

Curfew – A curfew at or before dark would no doubt be imposed (this is actually already happening in a number of cities across the US – for example, New Jersey has suggested a “voluntary” curfew, and a number of counties in the Bay Area have ordered a “shelter-in-place”) The reasons are obvious: If the military is in an area, they want as little to deal with as possible in terms of risk and disorder(and people create risk and disorder).

Further, when the military is in charge fun will be less paramount. Restaurants, bars, and other entertainment venues would likely be closed anyways (as they are in many states at this moment). In other words, the government and soldiers won’t want to deal with people out after dark.

Employment to continue soon – Initially, all activity would likely cease if a genuinely major crisis occurred in the US.  (With the current pandemic, we seem to be 30/40% of the way there, with some people not working, some people working from home, and some essential governmental or societal functions still operating). That being said, in real martial law, it servers the government for the economy to still appear to be functioning, so depending on the specific circumstances of the crisis, the government would want people to return  to work as soon as it was safe for most people.

In other words, we all need work to survive and that’s exactly what the country would want to do: Survive.

Rations And Tribunals Under Martial Law

Rations – The military just might end up in charge of rationing out food and supplies, if needed in the area, during a period of Martial Law.

Military Tribunals – Don’t expect a standard jury and trial during such times. A trial? Yes, in a way at least. Basically, members of the military ( a military commission ) would meet to determine a lawbreakers fate during a Martial Law period and this would happen swiftly. in general, this kind of “trial” would favor speed over fairness.

Further, the public would have to expect much more severe penalties for lawbreaking (particularly for those offenses that could in any minor way be tied to violence, disorder, and of course, terrorism).

In other words, if you were found to be a terrorist under military rule. . . Well, let’s face it: The government would probably pass a law putting these people to death.

And remember, during such times the military would not act like local police. In other words, they would probably give possible lawbreakers only one shot before shooting on site if that.

Security – With security the number one directive, expect that leaving a city/ area by car would be an ordeal. We’re talking akin to getting into Canada (actually, a lot worse). Thus, travel, beyond to places of employment, would be severely restricted (possibly by permit only?).

Detention Camps – Some might not like to hear this but detention camps would clearly be warranted if such a thing were to occur. Back on November 13, 2001 the President issued a military order involving the detention, treatment, and trial of certain non-citizens in the war against terrorism. Basically, this order said that the government could detain non-citizens reasonably suspected of being a terrorist or harboring them (as long as they were treated humanely in these detention centers).

Currently, there are many detention centers that already exist to hold illegal immigrants – granted, they aren’t US citizens, but it demonstrates to you that the government (regardless of political party) is definitely not averse to putting people in camps as long as they feel they can get away with it.

Further, there would be a trial (by military commission). In other words, much like the Military Tribunals spoken of earlier.

Beyond this, it is quite clear that the United States has considered such detention situations as Halliburton’s former engineering and construction subsidiary has a contingency contract with the Department of Homeland Security to construct detention facilities in the case of national emergency (according to WorldNetDaily).

An ICE spokesman (ICE being the former subsidiary) further indicated that the detention centers would be used in the event of a mass migration crisis (which it seems we are seeing in action right now). Along with this, it is very hard to know how many people might be detained in such a manner.

A note about detention camps: You might think that after a genuine crisis, if martial law is declared, then the government is merely locking up those who deserve it. People who are either out to harm the country or its citizens, or people who are dangerous, criminal, disorderly, etc.

But without the right to a fair trial, how would you know? The truth is, we should all have a problem with unlawful or illegal detention camps, particularly if those camps hold US citizens. Because if they can justify putting someone else into a camp, they can justify putting you in a camp. Don’t fall into the trap of believing your (or your neighbors) freedom is worth trading for a slightly better sense of security or safety. Even if the ones being put in detention are “bad” people in your estimation, the government has a responsibility to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that they have committed crimes – otherwise detention is illegal and unethical. It’s not about who gets locked up – it’s about the process of how they get locked up.

What Does It Take To Survive Martial Law?

If America ever takes that step, where martial law is enacted by national, state and even local authorities, it will likely be a last ditch-attempt for the government of the United States of America to hold on to power.

Once martial law takes place, America is most likely on a fast slope to complete collapse.

In order to survive genuine martial law (the kind where freedom and democracy are put on pause but never come back), it pays if you’ve been prepping for disaster. While stockpiling survival food would help to an extent, if you want to “escape” martial law, you’ll want bug out. Staying in your home (unless you already live in a remote area and mostly off the grid) is a bad idea because the military will want to have control of the people, so they will have a heavy presence in towns and cities.

You’ll want to bug out to somewhere remote, and have a plan for meeting your needs based on the survival rule of threes. In the short term, that means having emergency blankets for shelter (or knowing how to build a shelter in the wild), and having a plan for water (survival water filters make sense for the short term, you’ll also want to know how to find water in the wild, harvest rainwater and or distill your own).

Also, for food, you should have some emergency food with you as a baseline, but also know how to forage, trap, fish, and/or hunt. Finally, you’ll want to have a survival first aid kit with you (as you should anytime you’re spending an extended amount of time in the wilderness or a remote area).

If you’ve got your rule of three survival needs covered, you should also be thinking about staying off grid, and for comfort’s sake having some kind of portable solar generator might be advisable. Avoid contact with other people where possible, camouflage your camp and shelter, and hope that the military takes no notice of you.

Warning About Martial Law: You May Never See Your Family Again

In a time of collapse of as the result of a WMD attack on America by terrorists, or the spread of a pandemic that kills millions, if Martial Law is declared in your region, my advice to you is to keep your head and don’t get caught up with the mass-anger that is likely to erupt as a protest by several strong-willed Americans standing up for the “red, white and blue” when they feel that government troops are now infringing on their Constitutional rights.

Instead of losing your head (as a lot of people will), if some pissed off soldiers show up in your neighborhood or at your door and want to search your home for weapons, don’t get in the way. Let them in. As a survival tactic, keep your cool, don’t make any smart remarks, don’t make any threats, don’t call them “Nazis”, as tempting as it might be. Make their day pleasant. Let them think you are on their side, even if you are not. Hopefully they leave without you pissing them off in any way.

Concentration Camps

You see, in a time like this, these soldiers may be acting on orders to simply seize anyone that gives any trouble at all — boom, that’s it, off you go to a concentration camp, and there’s a good chance you may never see your family again. Here’s why:

In a time of collapse, there’s no telling what drastic event is going to happen in the coming weeks or months in the community where your family lives while you’re away. What if your family has to flee a new danger that comes to the area? What if they evacuate to a distant town?

If you’re locked away in a concentration camp, you’re not likely to see them again. You might think that you could just look for them online or call them – but in these kinds of circumstances, the internet probably won’t function any longer and access to cell phones will almost definitely be restricted (if they still work at all).

Plus, what if a few weeks from now some rioters, looters, or thugs arrive in town, find out that your wife has “no man” at home to protect her, and decide to pay her a visit one evening. If you happen to have a daughter or two also at home; well, you see where this might go.

So back to that day when government troops show up at your home and put you under house arrest and even demand your guns. Don’t do anything stupid. Be smart. Your family needs you.

Think, Don’t React

Even if they take your guns, it’s not the end of the world. Remember, this is America: A land of guns. Someone, somewhere is going to have a firearm. (For those of you who don’t believe that President Trump would take away your guns, you are sorely mistaken. Like him or hate him, it’s unlikely that he genuinely cares about the second amendment either way. If it was to his advantage, he would definitely take away your guns – it’s just that right now it’s not to his advantage).

Stock some extra gear on hand (you know things that you can barter with) and more than likely at some point you’ll be able to trade for a new firearm or two in the coming days or weeks, should you need to re-arm.

There are a lot of red-blooded Americans pissed off today just at the thought that the government may one day clamp down on assault rifles; I think it’s a safe bet a lot of these guys are going to end up hauled off to concentration camps, others will go down in a foolish blaze of what they think is “glory,” others will end up murdering troops acting on orders and then having to flee on foot, hoping they don’t get caught: Because if they’re caught, there’s a great chance that they’ll be executed shortly after, without even a trial.

Under true, extended martial law where democracy no longer holds, America is likely to become a dangerous land. Surviving in a time like this is going to take intelligent thinking, sometimes calling for a lot of humility at times; I think it will be a great time for people to seek God finally, maybe for the first time in their life. I mean for real: Repentance, faith, the whole she-bang. Finally, this will all make sense. Without God, people are going to die, not knowing or understanding how all of this could happen — how America could one day go from a nation blessed by God to a nation now suffering God’s judgments: Judgments for massive sin. That will be the reason why America falls.

Even if you are a non-believer, in order to survive this kind of extreme situation, you’ll want to play it smart, even if it’s tempting to “go down fighting”. If you want to keep your family safe and sound, then stay cool, calm, and collected, gather your wits about you, and don’t provoke the soldiers who hold your life in their hands.

Avoid Riots: Danger Of Mass Arrests

Avoid riots, protests, and so forth for the same reason as above. The last thing you want to do is be swept up in a mass arrest.

The “mass arrest” is a danger that I think a lot of people underestimate. Readers would be wise to consider that you can be separated from your family for several months, if authorities who are clamping down grab you by mistake, just because you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time. In a time of catastrophic collapse, families and children need their fathers and husbands and sons. I think a great strategy for keeping your family intact following a time of collapse is for people to recognize the signs that civil unrest is about to take place and then to simply get out of Dodge before authorities take any kind of action.

Also, I highly recommend this book to everyone. 300 pages, color, paperback. The Lost Book of Remedies is helping Americans achieve medical self-sufficiency even in the darkest times using the time-tested methods of our grandparents without spending lots of money on toxic drugs and without side effects.

COVID LAW: AN EXCUSE FOR POWER-HUNGRY MAYORS AND GOVERNORS TO ABUSE THEIR AUTHORITY WITH THREATS AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL DECISIONS

MONOLOGUE WRITTEN BY CLYDE LEWIS FROM groundzeromedia.org

I have been seeing a lot of speculation in social media that showcase a number of theories about what is next for the United States as we are seeing more of a crackdown on social distancing and shelter in place. There are many that are worried that the next step is martial law and there are those, mostly who do not know how to spell the word martial telling people that we are already in a state of martial law.

Now I am not surprised that this is happening because when you see many national guard Humvees move through the neighborhood it is a chilling reminder of what has been seen in movies like The Siege and The Stand.

As of Tuesday, more than 1,500 Guard personnel in 22 states were called up to aid efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19 as the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus a pandemic on March 11, with President Donald Trump following two days later to classify the virus as a national emergency.

At the moment there is no reason to set up what is called the martial law framework and therefore we are not in a state of martial law.

In simple terms, martial law is the replacement of civil rule with temporary military authority in a time of crisis. While its imposition is rare, the United States does have several noteworthy instances where martial law came into play, including in times of war, natural disasters and civic disputes.

Though there is no precise definition of martial law, the precedent in the United States holds that under it, “certain civil liberties may be suspended, such as the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures, freedom of association, freedom of movement, and the writ of habeas corpus – the right to a trial before imprisonment may be suspended.

Legally speaking, we are not under martial law but we seem to be implementing it in spirit, meaning that if local governments wish to impose many of the privileges they have without checks and balances you may see the rise of many state dictators who are using COVID-19 as an excuse to enact unconstitutional laws. (see the bottom of this article)

Martial law can be declared by both the president and Congress. The governor of a state may also declare martial law if it is included in that state’s constitution. However, Congress has never solely imposed it.

Americans who seem to be clamoring for it do not know enough about it to demand anything but what is being handled by law enforcement at this time.

In extreme circumstances, there is an exception: the Insurrection Act, which allows the use of active-duty or National Guard troops for federal law enforcement in cases when “rebellion against the authority of the U.S. makes it impracticable to enforce the laws of the U.S. by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings,” according to U.S. Northern Command.

The president has named the coronavirus a “major disaster” under the Stafford Act, which enumerates how the federal government can handle emergency responses, which no president has ever done before in response to a health epidemic. While much of the coronavirus response falls under the purview of the federal government, “enforcing” laws relating to public health and safety falls squarely within the powers of the states under the Tenth Amendment.

What NAVY Seals Will Do During This Coronavirus Disaster…

This is probably the most counter-intuitive aspect of survival. One that very few newbie preppers know about… but do you know what the military, navy seals, expert preppers, hardcore bushcraft survivalists and all of their families will do during the next disaster?

Will they head for the woods? No…
Will they load their bug-out vehicles with supplies and storm off? Nope.
Will they go to their bug-out retreat? Not a chance.

99% of them will bug in. That’s what they’re prepping for right now, and so should you.

Why? Because bugging out is flat-out dangerous. You’ll be out there, in the wild or on a highway, vulnerable, with no shelter, limited supplies, and dangers at every step.

Dan F. Sullivan, one of the top survival experts, has put together a fantastic video that answers some tough questions. I recommend you watch it right now:

The Tenth Amendment was included in the Bill of Rights to further define the balance of power between the federal government and the states. The amendment says that the federal government has only those powers specifically granted by the Constitution. These powers include the power to declare war, to collect taxes, to regulate interstate business activities and others that are listed in the articles.

Any power not listed, says the Tenth Amendment, is left to the states or the people.

We reported that most of what is being carried out is at the discretion of state government – all other declarations would be from the president with approval from Congress.

The president has named the coronavirus a “major disaster” under the Stafford Act, which enumerates how the federal government can handle emergency responses, which no president has ever done before in response to a health epidemic. While much of the coronavirus response falls under the purview of the federal government, “[enforcing] laws relating to public health and safety falls squarely within the powers of the states under the Tenth Amendment,” The Atlantic reported.

As such, states would most likely need to put in requests for Stafford Act declarations for COVID-19 relief.

For now, no major mobilizations have occurred, and the power to call up the National Guard remains with the states, including for drill weekends and other duties.

That can change of course, as we are in a partial martial law condition, things can certainly go south quickly.

President Trump now claims the power to quarantine individuals suspected of being infected by the virus and, “stop and seize any plane, train or automobile to stymie the spread of contagious disease.” He can even call out the military to cordon off a US city or state.

Now, as I had predicted there are local authoritarians that are taking advantage of their new powers.

The mayor of Champaign, Illinois, signed an executive order declaring the power to ban the sale of guns and alcohol and cut off gas, water, or electricity to any citizen. The governor of Ohio just essentially closed his entire state.

The Mayor of New Orleans signed a couple of emergency orders that can restrict the sale or transportation of alcohol and firearms.

The Second Amendment Foundation isn’t thrilled with state officials that are using a virus to specifically infringe the second amendment. The SAF penned a response to the mayor’s office, informing them that if they don’t fix that language in the new declaration then they’ll be taken to court:

“The presence of a nasty disease does not suspend any part of the Bill of Rights, no matter what some municipal, state or even federal politician may think.

While we certainly recognize the seriousness of this virus and its ability to spread rapidly, treating Covid-19 and taking steps to prevent it from infecting more people has nothing at all to do with the exercise of the right to keep and bear arms under the Second Amendment.”

Governments love crises because when the people are fearful they are more willing to give up freedoms for promises that the government will take care of them.

In the wake of the COVID 19 outbreak, it is impossible to know the attitudes of everyone in the chaos; however, the mainstream media has captured an overall attitude of dissonance that could echo for more than the initial 15 days of hell that the government has imposed on the entire country.

For example, Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health is now reporting to congress that the death rate for the coronavirus is ten times that of the seasonal flu.

It was reported on CNN this morning that 1 in 10 people who are elderly can die from coronavirus.

The population of Americans age 65 or older is around 52 million.

The expectation that a “majority” of a population will become infected reflects a worst-case scenario about who encounters whom, something modelers call “homogeneous mixing.” But even the more realistic assumption that not everyone mixes with everyone else means that “at least a quarter to a half of the population will very likely become infected.

This does not bode well for the young who have decided to run to the beaches for spring break. Many have thrown caution to the wind to be irresponsible and partying, however, ethics is one of those things that have not learned in their young adulthood.

With all of the virtue signaling of the young and the liberal, you would think that they would be more considerate of others – but as we can see the cancel culture and the young virtuous are hypocrites.

It all boils down to entitlement and while the young have been in control with their hashtag activism—it may be time to put in check the so-called “wisdom of the young” when it comes to the situation we are in now.

This would be an excuse to implement martial law, a way to clear the beaches to cancel the cancel culture.

Ignoring the government at this time while they are allegedly going easy on us will certainly embolden lawmakers to push for more controls on the public at large.

Are we now at a point in the United States where we don’t understand the implications of what martial law is or what Executive Orders and lists of American citizens marked for death means to the very liberty and well-being of the country?

I wonder if we have been desensitized to the idea that we would never implement an authoritarian rule that the fix is in.

Martial law is not simply an emergency declaration. It is the suspension of civil rights and assumption of all authority by the police or military, which in a democracy are supposed to be under civilian control.

The measure is so extreme that, on the national level, it has been imposed exactly once by Abraham Lincoln. Despite the obvious calamity posed by the Civil War, Lincoln’s imposition of martial law and suspension of habeas corpus remains controversial to this day.

It can get much worse on an international level as well.

The head of the Atlantic Council wrote an editorial this week urging NATO to pass an Article 5 declaration of war against the COVID-19 virus. This would be unnecessary but of course, we see that there are some that are not satisfied until there are tanks in streets flexing their muscles against a tiny virus.

President Donald Trump announced in a March 18 White House briefing that he was invoking the Defense Production Act (DPA) to expand the supply of resources available to deal with the COVID-19 outbreak.

The DPA allows the president to direct the production of private sector firms of critical manufactured goods to meet urgent national security needs.

Trump’s move seeks to marshal additional resources for America’s emergency response to COVID-19. This will hopefully increase the production of masks, ventilators, and respirators, as well as expand hospital capacity to combat the outbreak.

This will hopefully increase the production of masks, ventilators, and respirators, as well as expand hospital capacity to combat the outbreak.

Trump said he is signing the DPA measure, adding that it was being deployed “just in case” and that it “could do a lot of good things, if we need it.”

Again his statement sounds like he is hopeful that this will all burn out eventually.

The media, of course, criticizes Trump for his words that they feel are undermining the concern that Americans should have about the pandemic.

However, the CDC and the World Health Organization seems to delight in telling us the death tolls and stoking the fear that renders us incapable of movement.

It also gives an excuse for power-hungry mayors and governors to abuse their authority with threats and unconstitutional decisions.

The reason many people are panicking is that with no information on what is next – people will do nothing – the best they can do is hunker down until the all-clear is issued and what is sick is that this crisis can be milked for whatever can be gained for the production of a vaccine or even the implementation of emergency socialism.

The medical surveillance state is certainly in the cards and more reason to implement the new national ID card.

This is all on the table –and many people feel that the vaccine in production will be mandatory leading to thoughts of apocalyptic fantasies.

What is the most difficult thing right now is trying to get your head around the idea that  40 to 70 percent of the population will be infected within the next few months.

What the CDC won’t tell you and what opportunist authoritarians won’t concede is that this virus could peter out with the warmer temperatures that are coming this spring. We could also see a full-on infection of the entire country and then we will see the virus die because there is nowhere for it to go.

There is always a vaccine – or a cocktail of antivirals that will kill it along with sunshine and fresh air – but there are no guarantees.

President Trump has been widely mocked for framing the outbreak, at least early on, as a problem that would disappear when the snow melts. But he wasn’t entirely off-base, experts have said.

Based on the epidemiological evidence currently available, there’s reason to believe that “with warmer, more humid weather” the virus will spread less efficiently, leading to a drop in cases, said Jeffrey Klausner, an adjunct professor of epidemiology at the University of California Los Angeles who previously worked for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

With a reduction in cases, anxiety and panic will go down,” he added. “Severe illness will decrease, and we can go back to business as usual.”

Another ray of hope is that the Coronavirus diagnosis in China is declining and they may have found a drug that can help reduce the suffering.

A drug used in Japan to treat influenza seems to be effective at treating COVID-19, according to news reports.

The antiviral drug, called Favipiravir or Avigan, showed positive outcomes in clinical trials involving 340 individuals in Wuhan and Shenzhen, said Zhang Xinmin, of China’s science and technology ministry.

Patients in Shenzhen who had tested positive for COVID-19 and who were given the drug got a negative virus test back four days later, as a median (half showed a negative test earlier and half later than four days). That was compared with a negative test about 11 days later, as a median, for patients not on the drug, according to news reports. In that same trial, lung conditions (as shown in X-rays) improved in about 91% of patients taking Favipiravir, compared with just 62% who weren’t taking the antiviral drug. 

In the Wuhan trial, the drug also seemed to shorten the duration of a patient’s fever from an average of 4.2 days to 2.5 days, according to Pharmaceutical Technology.

If this is a ray of hope then perhaps someone should notify our leaders to look into the possibility of giving this drug to those who can tolerate it … otherwise, we can continue down this road of economic ruin.

Otherwise, the pandemic could spread consistently through the summer— everyone who can get the virus does get it until there’s no one left to infect—that is a worst-case scenario.

This would mean that early every aspect of life—business, education, cultural activity, agriculture, productivity, mental health would be hit by likely irreparable damage. Without public gatherings, and at those numbers, it might be hard to even conduct funerals.

If the infection spreads widely enough, there are no more people to become infected.

This is why we are seeing a decline in the number of infected in China… the virus is burning through its fuel.

Meanwhile, Remdesivir, which was created by Gilead Sciences, has been reported as the most promising possible treatment for the virus because it is a “broad spectrum” drug that has shown effectiveness against various viral targets in lab testing.

Officials expect outcome data on remdesivir as early as April, and there have been promising studies in cell culture and animal models.

Once the data is available and presented to the FDA, you can expect that FDA approval would be within a few days to a couple of weeks.

That does not mean, that government officials with their new lust for power won’t bring back your rights anytime soon.

Manipulated data was an insurance policy for China to round up dissidents and I can imagine Americans cashing their checks provided them by the government finding out that they owe fines or back taxes or have outstanding warrants.

Don’t think that getting money from the government is a “no questions asked’ operation.

It looks as if the new sense of American entitlement is the same age-old American Exceptionalism that now has become an excuse for denial. It needs to be said that the Constitution is not some magical document that somehow has the power to zap away any and all enemies of it. It has no magical power and yet we as Americans believe that for some reason that it will always prevail when there is a demand that old fashioned fascism should step in and imprison and corporatize the state into a dark despotism.

The Constitution is no longer a safeguard from tyranny. Obviously, the fear of a virus has shown this.

Some American leaders see it as a necessity to suspend human rights despite the warnings of the founding fathers about what happens when this is accomplished.

The media also finds it within its scope of judgment not to question the motives of our elected officials even though we now know that some of our government leaders have now descended into the abyss of psychopathic oligarchy and will not stop until they control everything including what you eat, where you eat, who you have sex with, what drugs you take and what jobs you are destined for when they open up the new genetically monitored medical surveillance state.

We can understand a self-imposed quarantine – it is an ethical thing to do but self-imposed slavery and self-serving socialism, is what will give America it’s a death sentence.

Editors note: In Romania, Europe as this article is being published it has been declared a ”state of emergency” (that can be translated martial law)for 30 days by President Klaus Iohannis to combat the spreading of coronavirus and approved by Congress. The decree that has been adopted includes the removal of most fundamental rights (to keep in mind that Romania today 20.03.2020 have 277 infected, of witch 25 declared cured, and NO DEATHS)

  • The right to free circulation; (for a good reason)
  • The right to intimacy, private and familial life (why??)
  • The right to inviolability of the home; (why??)
  • The right to education; (understandable at some level)
  • The right to freedom of gatherings; ( for a good reason)
  • The right to private property; (why??)
  • The right to strike; (understandable at some level)
  • The right to economic freedom; (why??)

Italy Europe: yesterday 19.03.2020 another 70 military trucks have been loaded with corpses as the crematories can’t keep up with the incoming corpses. (the number of deaths is way beyond the declared) expect the worst from this worldwide situation and expect the worst from the people when facing the famine, lack of medications and government support. Brace for impact and prepare as much as you possibly can.

Also, I highly recommend this book to everyone. 300 pages, color, paperback. The Lost Book of Remedies is helping Americans achieve medical self-sufficiency even in the darkest times using the time-tested methods of our grandparents without spending lots of money on toxic drugs and without side effects. A great asset when doctors and hospitals won’t be available anymore. You may not be Claude Davis, but you can make use of his procedures and techniques to increase your chances of survival!

Are You Prepared For Quarantine? 6 Steps For Quick Quarantine Preparedness Plus 2 Weeks Menu Plans Suggesting

With US cases rising daily, the time to protect yourself and the people you love from the coronavirus (COVID-19) is now. But you don’t need to wait on the government or healthcare system to help. Here are the six most fundamental steps every household should take to prepare for a coronavirus outbreak.

STEP 1: MAKE SPACE FOR 14 TO 30 DAYS OF ISOLATION

Let’s start with the worst-case scenario. If someone in your family were to test positive for COVID-19—even if they had only mild symptoms—you’d all be asked to quarantine in your own home for anywhere from 14 to 30 days. In fact, some people are choosing to self-quarantine even with a negative test.

Regardless the reason, you need to be sure your home and family are prepared for the possibility. The most important step you can take to achieve that is to stock up so you’re ready to shelter in place for the long haul.

To start, you’ll want to make room for the supplies you need. This won’t necessarily require a massive garage or pantry. Get creative with your empty space in places like closets and under beds. A stack of cans covered with a table cloth makes a great impromptu coffee table. You’ll be surprised how much extra space you can make without feeling crammed in.

STEP 2: PUT FOOD AND WATER FIRST

Preparing for a quarantine isn’t cause for panic. Remember, the steps you’re taking will help prevent a serious emergency. There’s no need to rush out to the store and hoard more toilet paper than you could possibly use in next decade.

What it does mean is starting to meal plan. Begin with a roster of recipes to last two weeks. Once that’s in place, double your plan and you’ll be set for an entire month.

It’s also important to remember that during a quarantine you’ll most likely still have access to power, meaning your refrigerator, freezer, microwave, and stove should all do their jobs without interruption.

If your cooking or baking skills leave something be desired, there are plenty of YouTube how-to videos you can learn from. Who knows, you could come out of quarantine with some new and improved skills!

Here is a checklist of must-have quarantine foods for your family:

  • Canned Foods. Fresh fruits and vegetables will likely spoil after the first week so canned foods that have a long storage life and need little or no cooking are recommended. Soups, broths and stews, fruits and fruit juices, and vegetables are some great options. Freeze-dried fruits and veggies are also good to have on hand, as many have a shelf life of up to 25 years.
  • Proteins. Meat products, tuna, and rice and beans are great sources of complete protein. Also consider sprouting with protein-rich seeds.
  • Dairy. Just because you’re stuck indoors doesn’t mean you have to go without dairy. Canned or powdered whey milk are delicious and last a long time.
  • Frozen Foods. Since the power will likely be on and reliable, frozen foods are an option, too. We suggest pre-prepped meals you can toss in the microwave.
  • Anything with Decent Shelf Life, Really. Other recommended foods are peanut butter, jelly, crackers, nuts, trail mix, dried fruits, granola bars, bouillon cubes, and staples like sugar, salt, pepper.
  • Special Diets. Keep in mind you may need to include some special foods for babies and family members on special diets (gluten free), as well as pet foods.
  • Water and Liquids. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests you have plenty of fluids on hand, such as bottled water and supply of fluids with electrolytes, Pedialyte or Gatorade. You will still have water from the tap, but it is always a good practice to keep at least a gallon per person on hand at any given time just in case the flow should stop or become contaminated.

In addition to canned or frozen foods there is also the option of freeze- dried or dehydrated foods. These are shelf stable and as long as they are stored properly will remain good for many years. So you don’t have to worry about losing power, and having your food insurance spoil like you do with a freezer, and their expiration dates are well beyond any canned goods – some up to 30 years. All they need is a bit of boiling water to rehydrate. And many people have found that the fruits and veggies in particular are perfectly delicious straight from the container.

Dehydrated or freeze-dried items are also great substitutes for things that you would typically purchase fresh when planning for a month’s-worth of meals. Milk, butter, eggs etc. can all be purchased in shelf-stable forms.

STEP 3: MEDICATIONS AND HYGIENE ARE A MUST

If you’re among those of us who needs medication to maintain health (or to live), then this next step is critical.

30 Days of Medication. This means prescriptions as well as over-the-counter pain relievers, antacids, cough and cold medicines, and vitamins. As your doctor or pharmacy if obtaining a 90 day supply of any required prescriptions is possible.

Hygiene Supplies. Many homes already have a 14-day supply of most daily items on hand. But make sure you have toothpaste, toilet paper, feminine supplies, diapers, laundry detergent, rubber gloves and disinfectant.

STEP 4: BUILD AN ISOLATION ROOM IN OR AROUND YOUR HOME

If someone living in your home is diagnosed with the Coronavirus, there are two words to get familiar with quickly: quarantine and isolation.

  • Quarantine – To separate non-infected people who may have been exposed from the general populace. Most likely, you and the people in your home will be quarantined if someone living there is diagnosed with novel coronavirus.
  • Isolation – To separate infected people from those who are healthy. Till now, hospitals have been doing this with novel-coronavirus-positive patients. As the virus spreads more widely, it will be up to everyday people like us to isolate members of our households and protect against the spread of infection.

We recommend prepping your home for both quarantine and isolation—but don’t worry, you don’t need a medical degree to do it. You just need the know-how and the right materials, all of which you can get at a hardware or grocery store. Here’s the breakdown:

Room Prep

Start with picking the right room. There are three things to look for.

  1. Isolated. The room ought to be set away from the most trafficked parts of your home—the more isolated the better. A garage, RV, or tent (weather permitting) can be great out-of-the-way options, but for most people a bedroom is best.
  2. Attached bathroom. A room with an attached bathroom is ideal. Even with dedicated and frequent cleanings, sharing a bathroom with an infected person is risky.
  3. Window access. A good isolation room will also have a window for ventilation, as it’s recommended you cut the room off from your forced-air ventilation system.

Once you’ve selected your room, it’s time to prep it. Hang two layers of drop cloth at the entrance: one to enter the room and another about two to three feet away to contain the virus. If you have the time and resources, you can use a containment zipper to help seal the entrance as well.

We also recommend you cover walls with plastic drop cloth, using duct tape as adhesive. It’s very important to cover vents as well. Hospitals will keep isolated patients on a different air system altogether. For most of our homes, that’s not an option, so covering vents and leaving windows open will do.

Materials Needed

  • Plastic drop cloth
  • Duct tape

Cleaning and Disinfecting

Once the room is prepared and the infected person safely isolated inside, the main objective is to keep the virus contained. To do that you’ll need a system for disinfecting the area and anything that comes into contact with it.

First things first, get yourself some effective disinfecting agents. Here’s a complete list of EPA-approved disinfectants that work against COVID-10.

Of course, if you’ve stepped foot inside a grocery store lately, you’ll know that the cleaning aisle is probably emptied out. Fortunately, with just bleach and water, you can whip up a very effective cleaning solution.

To prepare a bleach solution, mix:

  • 5 tablespoons (1/3rd cup) bleach per gallon of water or
  • 4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water

It’s best to prepare your solutions in batches and re-mix new ones as needed. Bleach solution will only remain potent for 2 to 3 weeks.

Prepare a cleaning station outside the door of the room with a biohazard bag to discard anything you’ve carried out. Have disinfectant wipes or a solution handy too, just in case anything leaving the room came into contact with a potentially infected object.

Once the isolation period is over, carefully remove and discard your drop cloths and dispose of them in biohazard bags. Launder all bedding and clothing separate from your regular wash. Make sure to wear gloves and a long-sleeved shirt as you do so (wash the shirt separately once you’ve finished). Then disinfect the entire room: walls, floors, dressers, bed stands, etc.

Materials Needed

  • Disinfecting wipes or disinfecting liquid cleaners. (Here’s a complete list of EPA-approved disinfectants for use against COVID-19).
  • At least one gallon of bleach
  • Water
  • 5-quart to 5-gallon pail or buckets
  • Bundles of fresh rags
  • Biohazard bags

Meals

Unless otherwise directed by a doctor, your isolated loved one should be OK to eat what the rest of the family eats. The biggest precaution to take here regards dishes: opt for disposable plates, utensils, and cups rather than risk cross contamination in your kitchen sink. Immediately throw these out after every meal.

Materials Needed

  • Disposable plates
  • Disposable utensils
  • Disposable cups

Everyday living

As involved as this may all seem, the hardest part of isolation is just everyday living. Things you take for granted, like occupying the same room or touching anything, become tricky.

Having the right equipment makes this a bit easier. Aside from what we’ve already covered, commit yourself to gearing up with the following equipment every time you enter the isolation room:

  • N95 respirator (if you can find them—please don’t over-stock, as hospitals and medical professionals need these)
  • Nitrile gloves
  • Long-sleeved shirt and pants
  • Disposable shoe covers

Whenever you exit the room, discard of shoe covers in your cleaning station. Respirators are for your infected loved one to put on when someone comes in. By the way, there’s a right and a wrong way to wear these—check the pdf bellow.

Never forget, as hard as it is to care for an infected person, suffering infection is far more difficult. Especially if your loved one doesn’t have easy access to a bathroom, make sure to provide the following{

  • Buckets or pails open head with lid or locking cover for waste
  • Bar liquid hand soap (antibacterial preferably)
  • Water (you’ll need an ongoing, fresh source)

STEP 5: PREPARE TO KEEP YOUR SPIRITS UP!

Unless someone is actually ill you don’t have to stay indoors. You can go out in your yard, go for walks in the neighborhood—just stay away from other people. BBQ. You may want to have some board games, cards, toys, books, magazines, coloring books and other fun items to keep the family occupied.

Take advantage of the down time to get reacquainted with an old hobby. Don’t forget you can use the Internet to video conference with family and friends to limit the feeling of isolation. 

STEP 6: LEARN THIS HAND SANITIZER HACK

Of all the things COVID-19 will be remembered for, who would have thought that hand sanitizer hoarding would be one of them? 

But sure enough, the moment news started to break on the virus, lines of shoppers gathered, filling their carts to the point that manufacturers couldn’t keep up. One man in Chattanooga Tennessee squirreled away 18,000 bottles, planning to jack up the price to desperate people online. He was cited for price gouging and ended up giving those bottles to charity. 

The good news is even if you can’t find hand sanitizer in stores, you can actually make your own—though it does take a bit of care. So use extreme caution. You need to be very precise in your measurements or you run the risk of doing yourself harm. 

Here’s a simple recipe with ingredients you may well have lying around the house.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 Cup 99 percent rubbing alcohol (drinking alcohols can work too, but have to be at minimum 180 proof)
  • 1/3 Cup aloe vera gel

Materials for Prep

  • 1 funnel
  • 1 bowl
  • 1 dispenser bottle (preferably with a pump lid, but any re-sealable container is fine)
  • 1 stirring rod (a fork, spoon, or knife will work)

Instructions

Mix the alcohol and aloe vera gel with stirring rod in a bowl till completely combined. Pour mixture through funnel into dispenser bottle.

Warning

Be careful that your batch contains at least 60 percent or more isopropyl alcohol. Any less will be ineffective killing viruses and can put you in danger of infection. Discard if not used after 30 days.

Also, it’s important to remember that hand sanitizer is no replacement for thorough hand washing. While it can be effective, nothing rids your hands of germs like good old-fashioned soap and water.

What NAVY Seals Will Do During This Coronavirus Disaster…

This is probably the most counter-intuitive aspect of survival. One that very few newbie preppers know about… but do you know what the military, navy seals, expert preppers, hardcore bushcraft survivalists and all of their families will do during the next disaster?

Will they head for the woods? No…
Will they load their bug-out vehicles with supplies and storm off? Nope.
Will they go to their bug-out retreat? Not a chance.

99% of them will bug in. That’s what they’re prepping for right now, and so should you.

Why? Because bugging out is flat-out dangerous. You’ll be out there, in the wild or on a highway, vulnerable, with no shelter, limited supplies, and dangers at every step.

Dan F. Sullivan, one of the top survival experts, has put together a fantastic video that answers some tough questions. I recommend you watch it right now:

You are going to want to start with a two-week meal planner such as the free one found bellow.  Once you have a planner simply plug in what you are going to prepare for a particular day’s meals. You can simply repeat it if you are planning on stocking up for 4 weeks. On a separate sheet of paper write down anything that you don’t already have on hand that you need to make that meal a reality for your household. 

Once you have completed that list, go through and combine things until you have a set number.  

For example, if you intend to make eggs for breakfast and you will be using them in a casserole for dinner another night, calculate how many dozen you need for everything (always round up in case some break). Same goes with bread—how many slices per meal do you calculate using, and how many loaves does that add up to?  You can freeze bread if you have the space. These revised totals become your shopping list.

Breakfast Ideas:

  • Dry Cereal and milk (assuming you normally keep milk on hand)
  • Waffles – from scratch, a mix or frozen
  • Eggs, bacon or sausage, hash browns and toast or English muffin
  • Pancakes
  • French toast
  • Oatmeal (you can add dry or fresh fruit)
  • Cream of Wheat or Cream of Rice
  • Muffins
  • Breakfast sandwich or burrito
  • Fruit smoothies
  • Coffee, tea, milk and orange or other juices

Lunch Ideas:

  • Soup – from scratch or canned
  • Sandwiches – what are your family’s favorite fillings
  • Pizza – frozen or home made
  • Cornbread and chili
  • Mac and cheese
  • Hot dogs or brats
  • Fruit and veggies

Don’t forget to plan for the sides. Many sides can be either purchased already frozen or safely placed in the freezer. Things like garlic bread, fruit and veggies, hamburger, buns, fries, tater tots, etc., can all be frozen if you have the room for them.

Double-check that you have all the ingredients you need for the recipes you intend to use. Check your stock of salt and pepper, make sure you have yeast, cooking oils, bread crumbs, condiments, etc.

MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL: STAY CALM

Remember friends, the most dangerous thing you can be in an emergency is panicked. You need a clear, sharp mind to make good decisions in what could be some of the most important moments of your life.

We know keeping cool may not always be easy—we’re right there with you. When the stress becomes too much, try to remove yourself from the situation for a moment, take some deep breaths, speak to your higher power (if it suits you), meditate, stretch, and keep on keeping on.

These hard times won’t last forever—they never do. If you’re prepared, the chances are very good that you and the people you love will come through this stronger than ever.

Good luck, God Bless, and stay alert, friends!

Also, I highly recommend this book to everyone. 300 pages, color, paperback. The Lost Book of Remedies is helping Americans achieve medical self-sufficiency even in the darkest times using the time-tested methods of our grandparents without spending lots of money on toxic drugs and without side effects.

In The Midst Of Coronavirus Pandemic: Herbal and Natural Therapies For Diabetes When The Pharmacies Won’t Be An Option

In the midst of coronavirus pandemic, experts advise people suffering from diabetes on preparing for what is to come: prescription refills, sick day kits, and general precautions.

So while there’s no cure, quick fix, or guaranteed way to prevent yourself from getting coronavirus, there are steps you can take to ensure your immune system is in peak condition.

Melissa Young, Pharm.D., board-certified in advanced diabetes management, and a CDCES (certified diabetes care and education specialist, formerly called CDE, or certified diabetes educator), also urges self-education and preparation. “We want everyone to be prepared, but to ask for help if they need it,” she said. “There may be a point where we are asked to stay home, so we need to do our best to follow the guidelines but to seek medical care if needed.”

In general, she says, “Definitely make sure your medications are refilled. This is not the time to get behind on medications.” This includes any oral drugs you take to manage blood sugar, insulin, and any related supplies such as syringes or pens, insulin pump supplies, pen needles, glucose strips, lancets, alcohol swabs, ketone strips, glucagon and whatever else you use to manage your diabetes.

With all the uncertainty of this pandemic, new information is coming out about prescription refill allowances:

  • Regence BlueCross BlueShield announced that they are easing refill restrictions for non-opioid medications, allowing 90-day prescription refills in Washington, Utah, and Oregon.
  • A Florida state statute allows people who live in counties experiencing a declared state of emergency to get an early refill of chronic medications for up to a 30-day supply.  

What is the risk of severe COVID-19 infection for people with well-managed diabetes?

Young couldn’t say. “Preliminary data show that the elderly and those with baseline chronic conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, and lung disease, appear to be at higher risk for experiencing severe illness with this virus. [High blood glucose levels challenge] the immune system, leaving the body vulnerable to severe outcomes with infections. Working with your diabetes care team to manage blood sugars would help the immune system to function properly and increase overall wellness. In addition, keep a careful eye on your blood sugar if you are sick; illness can cause blood sugars to spike, leading to severe complications that further weaken the body’s ability to fight the virus.”

She also urged people with diabetes to continue taking not just their diabetes medications, but related prescribed drugs such as those for lowering cholesterol and blood pressure levels, too. “The more chronic conditions you have, the more you are at a higher risk.” Keeping health conditions managed is vital for good health.

What you should do right now to prepare?

To be prepared, have a fully stocked sick-day kit at the ready. It should include the following:

  • The name and phone number of your doctors, including a primary care physician and anyone on your diabetes care team, such as an endocrinologist or diabetes educator.
  • A list of your active medications and doses, including supplements and vitamins.
  • A card or piece of colored poster board that states you have diabetes, to keep in your wallet; a bracelet, necklace or other wearable tags that indicates you have diabetes.
  • A source of simple carbohydrates to treat lows, kept separate from other food in the house. “Everyone thinks this is so simple, but what if someone else in the house drinks the soda from the refrigerator or eats the LifeSavers,” said Young. Keeping them separate ensures they will be available to you if needed.
  • Alcohol swabs, extra hand sanitizer, ketone strips, glucagon.

What can you do when the pharmacies won’t be an option?

Diabetes is a serious disease that can often be managed through physical activity, diet, use of insulin and oral medications to lower blood sugar levels. People with diabetes are at increased risk of additional serious health complications including vision loss, heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, amputation of toes, feet or legs, and premature death. As many as 2 out of 5 Americans are expected to develop type 2 diabetes in their lifetime.

According to The National Diabetes Statistics Report, 2017 analyzes health data through 2015, 30.3 million Americans, or 9.4% of the population, had diabetes. Approximately 1.25 million American children and adults have type 1 diabetes.

84.1 million Americans age 18 and older had prediabetes (a condition in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal but are not high enough for a diagnosis of diabetes. People with prediabetes are at increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes and for heart disease and stroke. Other names for pre-diabetes are impaired glucose tolerance and impaired fasting glucose.)

1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes every year and even with all the technologies, and treatments available, diabetes remains the 7th leading cause of death in the United States with 79,535 death certificates listing it as the underlying cause of death, and a total of 252,806 death certificates listing diabetes as an underlying or contributing cause of death.

What will people with diabetes do when the hospital and pharmacies won’t be an option anymore? When the SHTF, and it will, there will be enough things to worry about other than staying healthy.

A quick trip to your local physician and you are back on track.  So how should we prepare for when times are not so good and there is no doctor or emergency room? It is very important to understand that knowing what to do when medical care is needed may not only diminish the pain the injured party suffers—but make the difference between life and death.

What herbal therapies are available for diabetes and pre-diabetes?

Blood glucose and blood sugar are interchangeable terms, and both are crucial to the health of the body; especially for people with diabetes.

Most diabetics will be familiar with the terms blood glucose, blood glucose test, blood glucose level and blood glucose meter, but what does blood glucose really mean? Why do blood sugar levels need to be controlled?

Blood sugar levels are literally the amount of glucose in the blood, sometimes called the serum glucose level. Usually, this amount is expressed as millimoles per liter (mmol/l) and stays stable amongst people without diabetes at around 4-8mmol/L.

Spikes in blood sugar will occur following meals, and levels will usually be at their lowest in the early mornings. When it comes to people with diabetes, blood sugar fluctuates more widely.

Many common herbs and spices are claimed to have a blood sugar lowering properties that make them useful for people with or at high risk of type 2 diabetes.

A number of clinical studies have been carried out in recent years that show potential links between herbal therapies and improved blood glucose control, which has led to an increase in people with diabetes using these more ‘natural’ ingredients to help manage their condition.

Plant-based therapies that have been shown in some studies to have anti-diabetic properties include: 

Aloe Vera and Diabetes

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 11-3.jpg

Aloe vera is a product of the prickly but succulent aloe vera plant, which has been used in herbal medicine for thousands of years due to its healing, rejuvenating and soothing properties.

Native to the Caribbean, South Africa, and Latin America, the plant’s leaves contain a clear gel that is widely used in:

  • Creams
  • Lotions
  • Shampoos
  • Ointments

A bitter liquid is known as aloe latex, which can be derived from the skin of the leaves, is used in juice drinks, tablets, capsules and dental care items such as toothpaste and mouthwash.

Preliminary research suggests that intake of aloe vera juice can help improve blood glucose levels and may, therefore, be useful in treating people with diabetes. [66]

Aloe has also been linked with:

  • Decreased blood lipids (fats) in patients with abnormally high levels of these molecules in the blood (e.g. some people with type 2 diabetes) and/or acute hepatitis (liver disease)
  • Decreased swelling and faster healing of wound injuries. Leg wounds and ulcers are common complications of diabetes, and they typically take a longer time to heal than in healthy non-diabetic individuals.

These positive effects are thought to be due to the presence of compounds such as lectins, mannans, and anthraquinones.

What other health benefits does it have?

As well as being mainly used to help soothe and heal skin problems and irritations, aloe vera also:

  • Supports digestive system health
  • Helps treat constipation
  • Helps the healing process in regards to both pain and inflammation
  • Prevents scars after surgery
  • Aids dental health

In addition, preliminary studies suggest that oral aloe vera gel may reduce symptoms and inflammation in patients with ulcerative colitis, which is a form of inflammatory bowel disease.

Bilberry Extract

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 1-1.jpg

Bilberries (scientific name: Vaccinium myrtillus) are a dark blue fruit, similar in appearance to blueberries but are smaller, softer and darker.

Research studies indicate that a compound in bilberries, anthocyanosides, appears to promote blood vessel strength which could have protective properties against forms of retinal damage in people with diabetes.

What are anthocyanosides?

Anthocyanosides are a part of a class of nutrients called flavonoids that are found in a number of fruits and other plants.

Anthocyanosides are found abundantly in a number of purples, blue and red berries and also in purple colored vegetables.

Bilberry extract is not recognized as a treatment for diabetes but people with diabetes may notice that it helps in lowering blood glucose levels.

If you are on blood glucose-lowering medication that can bring on hypoglycemia, you may need to monitor your blood glucose levels and take precautions to ensure blood sugar levels don’t go too low.

What are the benefits of bilberry extract?

The following benefits have been observed from research studies into bilberries, bilberry extract or anthocyanosides:

  • Strengthens blood vessels
  • Improves circulation
  • Treats diarrhea
  • Prevent cell damage
  • Could help in treating retinopathy
  • May help lower blood glucose levels

Bilberry extract and retinopathy

Retinopathy and maculopathy are both conditions of the retina in the eye that are more likely to develop in people with diabetes.

Research has shown that people with retinopathy that took bilberry extract during the study showed signs of strengthening of blood vessels in the retina and reduced hemorrhaging.

The research that has been carried out to date has been small scale and so whilst bilberry extract shows promise, researchers are yet to find out how much bilberry extract may be of help in limiting the development of retinopathy.

Bitter Melon and Diabetes

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 1-2.jpg

Bitter melon, also known as bitter gourd or karela (in India), is a unique vegetable-fruit that can be used as food or medicine.

It is the edible part of the plant Momordica Charantia, which is a vine of the Cucurbitaceae family and is considered the most bitter among all fruits and vegetables.

The plant thrives in tropical and subtropical regions, including:

  • South America
  • Asia
  • parts of Africa
  • the Caribbean

The bitter melon itself grows off the vine as a green, oblong-shaped fruit with a distinct warty exterior – through its size, texture and bitterness vary between the different regions in which it grows – and is rich in vital vitamins and minerals.

How does it affect diabetes?

In addition to being a food ingredient, bitter melon has also long been used as a herbal remedy for a range of ailments, including type 2 diabetes.

The fruit contains at least three active substances with anti-diabetic properties, including charantin, which has been confirmed to have a blood glucose-lowering effect, vicine and an insulin-like compound known as polypeptide-p.

These substances either work individually or together to help reduce blood sugar levels.

It is also known that bitter melon contains a lectin that reduces blood glucose concentrations by acting on peripheral tissues and suppressing appetite – similar to the effects of insulin in the brain.

This lectin is thought to be a major factor behind the hypoglycemic effect that develops after eating bitter melon.

Scientific evidence

A number of clinical studies have been conducted to evaluate the efficacy of bitter melon in the treatment of diabetes.

In January 2011, the results of a four-week clinical trial were published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, which showed that a 2,000 mg daily dose of bitter melon significantly reduced blood glucose levels among patients with type 2 diabetes, although the hypoglycemic effect was less than a 1,000 mg/day dose of metformin. [68]

Other older studies have also suggested an association between bitter melon intake and improved glycemic control, while a report published in the March 2008 issue of Chemistry and Biology found that bitter melon increased cellular uptake of glucose and improved glucose tolerance. [69]

However, research published in the Journal of Clinical Epidemiology in 2007 failed to show any benefits of bitter melon for poorly controlled type 2 diabetes, while another clinical review published two years later in the British Journal of Nutrition stated that more, better-designed and clinical trials are required to confirm the fruit’s role in diabetes treatment. [70]

What other health benefits does it have?

Bitter melon is used in traditional medicine for:

  • Colic
  • Fever
  • Burns
  • Chronic cough
  • Painful menstruation
  • Skin conditions

It is also used to heal wounds, assist childbirth and, in parts of Africa and Asia, prevent or treat malaria and viral diseases such as measles and chickenpox.

In addition, researchers from Saint Louis University in the US say they have shown that an extract from bitter melon can kill breast cancer cells and prevent them from growing and spreading.

Cinnamon and Diabetes

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 1-3.jpg

Cinnamon is a sweet but pungent spice that is derived from the inner bark of the branches of wild cinnamon trees, which grow in tropical areas across Southeast Asia, South America and the Caribbean.

The use of cinnamon dates back thousands of years and was highly prized among many ancient civilizations.

Cinnamon, often used in cooking and baking, is increasingly being linked to improvements in the treatment of conditions such as diabetes mellitus.

Research has suggested that cinnamon can help to improve blood glucose levels and increase insulin sensitivity.

How does cinnamon affect diabetes?

Results from a clinical study published in the Diabetes Care journal in 2003 suggest that cassia cinnamon (cinnamon bark) improves blood glucose and cholesterol levels in people with type 2 diabetes, and may reduce risk factors associated with diabetes and cardiovascular disease. [71]

A daily intake of just 1, 3, or 6 grams was shown to reduce serum glucose, triglyceride, LDL or bad cholesterol and total cholesterol after 40 days among 60 middle-aged diabetics.

Another study reported in the July 2000 edition of Agricultural Research Magazine found that consuming just 1g of cinnamon per day can increase insulin sensitivity and help manage or reverse type 2 diabetes.

In addition, a more recent analysis published in 2007 in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that 6g of cinnamon slows stomach emptying and significantly reduces hyperglycemia after meals (postprandial blood glucose) without affecting satiety. 

As a result of the scientific evidence available, many health experts claim that cinnamon contains properties that are beneficial for blood sugar regulation and treatment of type 2 diabetes.

However, bear in mind that like many natural compounds cinnamon is yet to be medically approved for prevention or treatment of any disease.

In addition to regulating blood glucose and lowering cholesterol, cinnamon has been shown to:

  • Have an anti-clotting effect on the blood
  • Relieve pain in arthritis sufferers
  • Boost the body’s immune system
  • Stop medication-resistant yeast infections
  • Help in relieving indigestion
  • Reduce the proliferation of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells
  • Preserve food by inhibiting bacterial growth and food spoilage
  • Be a great source of vital nutrients, including calcium, fiber, manganese, and iron

The majority of these health benefits are associated with the use of true cinnamon (also known as Ceylon cinnamon) and not cassia bark cinnamon, which is the species involved in most diabetes research.

Fenugreek and Diabetes

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 1-4.jpg

Fenugreek is an aromatic plant that has many uses, both culinary – fenugreek is a key ingredient of curries and other Indian recipes – and medicinal.

The plant, which is widely grown in South Asia, North Africa and parts of the Mediterranean, has small round leaves and also produces long pods that contain distinctive bitter-tasting seeds.

The leaves are either sold as a vegetable (fresh leaves, sprouts, and microgreens) commonly known as methi or as an herb (dried leaves), while the seeds are used both whole and in powdered form as a spice.

As well as being a popular cooking ingredient, fenugreek has a number of health benefits and is used in both Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine.

How does it affect diabetes?

Fenugreek seeds (Trigonella foenum graecum) are high in soluble fiber, which helps lower blood sugar by slowing down digestion and absorption of carbohydrates. This suggests they may be effective in treating people with diabetes.

Multiple studies have been carried out to investigate the potential anti-diabetic benefits of fenugreek.

Of these, several clinical trials showed that fenugreek seeds can improve most metabolic symptoms associated with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes in humans by lowering blood glucose levels and improving glucose tolerance.

In one study, researchers in India found that adding 100 grams of defatted fenugreek seed powder to the daily diet of patients with insulin-dependent (type 1) diabetes significantly reduced their fasting blood glucose levels, improved glucose tolerance and also lowered total cholesterol, LDL or ‘bad’ cholesterol and triglycerides.

In another controlled trial, incorporating 15 grams of powdered fenugreek seed into a meal eaten by people with type 2 diabetes reduced the rise in post-meal blood glucose, while a separate study found that taking 2.5 grams of fenugreek twice a day for three months lowered blood sugar levels in people with mild, but not severe, type 2 diabetes.

What other health benefits does it have?

Fenugreek seeds are a rich source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which help protect the body’s cells from damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals.

For centuries they have been (and are still) used by nursing mothers to help stimulate the production of breast milk during pregnancy and following childbirth. Due to their powerful antiviral properties, they are also commonly used as an herbal remedy for colds and sore throats.

In addition, researchers believe fenugreek seeds may be effective in the treatment of arthritis, high cholesterol, skin problems (wounds, rashes and boils), bronchitis, abscesses, hair loss, constipation, upset stomach, kidney ailments, heartburn, male impotence and other types of sexual dysfunction.

Ginger and Diabetes

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 1-5.jpg

Ginger is the thick knotted underground stem (rhizome) of the plant Zingiber officinale that has been used for centuries in Asian cuisine and medicine.

Native to Africa, India, China, Australia, and Jamaica, it is commonly used as a spice or flavoring agent in cooking, as an alternative ‘herbal’ treatment for various ailments such as nausea and indigestion, and for fragrance in soaps and cosmetics.

The ginger rhizome can be used fresh, dried and powdered, or as a juice or oil. It has a pungent and sharp aroma and adds a strong spicy flavor to the food and drink.

Effect on diabetes

Glycemic control

A study published in the August 2012 edition of the natural product journal Planta Medica suggested that ginger may improve long-term blood sugar control for people with type 2 diabetes.

Researchers from the University of Sydney, Australia, found that extracts from Buderim Ginger (Australian grown ginger) rich in gingerols – the major active component of the ginger rhizome – can increase uptake of glucose into muscle cells without using insulin, and may, therefore, assist in the management of high blood sugar levels.

Insulin secretion

In the December 2009 issue of the European Journal of Pharmacology, researchers reported that two different ginger extracts, spissum, and an oily extract, interact with serotonin receptors to reveres their effect on insulin secretion.

Treatment with the extracts led to a 35 percent drop in blood glucose levels and a 10 percent increase in plasma insulin levels.

Cataract protection

A study published in the August 2010 edition of Molecular Vision revealed that a small daily dose of ginger helped delay the onset and progression of cataracts – one of the sight-related complications of long-term diabetes – in diabetic rats.

It’s also worth noting that ginger has a very low glycemic index (GI). Low GI foods break down slowly to form glucose and therefore do not trigger a spike in blood sugar levels as high GI foods do.

Other health benefits

Ginger has been used as an herbal therapy in Chinese, Indian, and Arabic medicine for centuries to aid digestion, combat the common cold and relieve pain.

Its powerful anti-inflammatory substances, gingerols, make it an effective pain reliever and it is commonly used to reduce pain and swelling in patients with arthritis and those suffering from other inflammation and muscle complaints.

In fact, ginger is said to be just as effective as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, but without the gastrointestinal side effects.

Other medical uses of ginger include treatment of:

  • Bronchitis
  • Heartburn
  • Menstrual pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Upset stomach
  • Diarrhea
  • Upper respiratory tract infections (URTI)

Okra

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 1-6.jpg

Okra is fast gaining a reputation as a so-called ‘superfood’ for people with or at risk of diabetes or cancer.

Commonly referred to as ladyfingers, or by its biological names Abelmoschus esculentus and Hibiscus esculentus, okra is known to have a positive effect on blood sugar control, among many other health benefits.

What is Okra?

Okra is a tall-growing vegetable that traces its origin from ancient Ethiopia (Abyssinia) through to Eastern Mediterranean, India, the Americas, and the Caribbean.

Parts of the plant (immature okra pods) are widely used vegetables in tropical countries and are typically used for making soups, stews or as a fried/boiled vegetable.

These tender pods are very low in calories, providing just 30 calories per 100 g, and contain no saturated fats or cholesterol. They are also rich in nutrients, completely non-toxic, and have no adverse side effects.

How can it help treat diabetes?

Evidence of okra having anti-diabetic properties has increased in recent years, with multiple Vitro (laboratory) and Vivo (animal) studies confirming okra as a potent blood glucose-lowering (or anti-diabetic) food.

In one study, published 2011 in the Journal of Pharmacy & BioAllied Sciences, researchers in India found that diabetic mice fed dried and ground okra peels and seeds experienced a reduction in their blood glucose levels, while others showed a gradual decrease in blood glucose following regular feeding of okra extract for about ten days.

Outside of scientific research, many people with diabetes have reported decreasing blood sugar levels after soaking cut-up okra pieces in water overnight and then drinking the juice in the morning, while in Turkey roasted okra seeds have been used as a traditional diabetes medicine for generations.

What’s behind this effect?

The superior insoluble fiber contained in okra is believed to help stabilize blood glucose by slowing the rate at which sugar is absorbed from the intestinal tract. 

Other health benefits

Because okra is a rich source of dietary fiber, important vitamins and minerals, and powerful antioxidants, the vegetable is known to be beneficial for health in a number of ways.

These include:

  • Preventing and improving constipation
  • Lowering cholesterol
  • Reducing the risk of some forms of cancer, especially colorectal cancer
  • Improving energy levels and improving symptoms of depression
  • Helping to treat sore throat, irritable bowel, ulcers, and lung inflammation

Allium

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 1-8.jpg

Allium sativum is more commonly known as garlic and is thought to offer antioxidant properties and micro-circulatory effects. Although few studies have directly linked allium with insulin and blood glucose levels, results have been positive.

Allium has been used safely since ancient times as both food and medicine in human populations, but studies of its efficacy in the management of diabetes have yielded conflicting results.

This study has evaluated the potential hypoglycemic effects of garlic in type 2 diabetic patients. The study was conducted in diagnosed type 2 diabetic patients (n=60) with fasting blood sugar level above 126 mg/dl to evaluate the effects of adding garlic tablets with standard antidiabetic therapy on blood sugar.

Patients were divided randomly into 2 groups. Group 1 (n=30) was given tablet Garlic (KWAI) 300 mg thrice daily + Metformin 500 mg twice daily and Group 2 (n=30) was given Placebo+Metformin 500 mg twice daily respectively for 24 weeks. Serum lipids and fasting blood glucose were measured at weeks 0, 12 and week 24. Group1 showed a significant reduction in fasting blood sugar at week 24 with a percentage decrease of (-3.12 percent) (P = <0.005) as compared to group 2 (0.59 percent).

At the end of week 24, GR1 group also showed considerable decrease in mean total cholesterol (6.2 mg/dl, -2.82%, P=<0.005), LDL-C (-3 mg/dl, 2.18% P=<0.005), triglycerides (-5.2 mg/dl, 3.12%, P<0.005) while HDL cholesterol was significantly increased (2.36 mg/dl, 6.72%, P<0.005) as compared to GR2 group. A combination of garlic with typical antidiabetic remedy has shown to improve glycemic control in addition to antihyperlipidemic activity. Garlic may be a good addition to the management of patients with diabetes and hyperlipidemia.

Allium may cause a reduction in blood glucose, increase secretion and slow the degradation of insulin. Limited data is available, however, and further trials are needed.

Also, I highly recommend this book to everyone. 300 pages, color, paperback. The Lost Book of Remedies is helping Americans achieve medical self-sufficiency even in the darkest times using the time-tested methods of our grandparents without spending lots of money on toxic drugs and without side effects.

Who Will Your Friends And Neighbors Be After The Collapse? Do They Fit Any Of These Profiles?

Dr. William Stockton celebrates yet another birthday surrounded by family and friends in the midst of a grand suburban paradise. The party is warm, and the evening is filled with joy and merriment. These people singing his praises, laughing and imbibing generous amounts of spirits, are neighbors he’s known for over 20 years. He understands them well, or at least, he thinks he does…

The good doctor, as his neighbors often point out with a jabbing chuckle, is a prepper; a brand of survivalist who participates in the day to day routine of mundane American life while using his spare time to safeguard against unforeseen disaster. His friends view this behavior as an amusing curiosity, an eccentric hobby, but none take it nearly as seriously as William does. It’s not that he is paranoid; far from it. In fact, William Stockton is a professional, a man of sense, and a man of family. He merely lives in an era of great potential danger, where nuclear war and societal collapse are anything but fantasy. Stockton takes these issues into account as an individual and acts according to the severity of his environment. Much more than his neighbors, he represents legitimate rationality.

Unfortunately for the doctor, and for those who live around him, the days of wine and frosted cake are about to abruptly end as a Civil Defense emergency bulletin blares over the wire. The reality that today’s comforts could disappear in the blink of an eye sets into the minds of the frightened listeners. And soon, we begin to witness the TRUE character of those William once held dear.

This scenario might sound like a familiar consideration to many of us, but for now, it remains the stuff of nighttime TV. So begins a rather prophetic and ingenious episode of The Twilight Zone entitled “The Shelter”…

The fascinating thing about “The Shelter” is that it is one of the few short stories showcased in The Twilight Zone (a science fiction program) which hasn’t a single element of science fiction within it. “The Shelter” is terrifying exactly because it is NOT a product of wild imagination, but a representation of the social fact that cuts to the calcium-rich bone of our culture, even almost 60 years after it aired on television.

The cold hard truth is, much of our country is completely unprepared for a crisis of any considerable proportion. While the 1950’s and 1960’s held the specter of immediate full-scale nuclear war, and thus a highly persuasive incentive for preparedness, the new millennium has hardly been anything to sneeze at. Economic collapse is just as destructive to a nation as an atomic bomb, if not more so. The likelihood of social unrest and the long-term implosion of our financial system is greater today than it has been in any other era of American history. So much so that even our currency may evaporate along with our standard of living. Those who prep today are acting in as much a logical fashion as those who built shelters during the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis.

The knee-jerk conclusion here by skeptics of the prepper lifestyle will be that the bunker owning citizens of the “red scare” days wasted their time. That obviously, there was no nuclear holocaust, and all their careful planning was for naught. Or why not bring up the media generated hysteria of Y2K, which played on the public’s utter lack of general knowledge concerning computers and U.S. infrastructure to inspire a widespread prepping panic? Did that farce not prove the absurdity of the survivalist mentality?

The answer is no, not really…

The eventuality of collapse is not the issue. Though America today has zero room to maneuver as far as inflationary printing and debt based spending are concerned, and economic instability is inevitable according to the fundamentals regardless of any practical or impractical political measures that could be introduced, the crisis is not our focus. Our focus is, and always has been, independence and self-reliance regardless of the circumstances. Through national prosperity or national pain, the key to survival is to never make assumptions. To never count on your environment to remain hospitable. To keep catastrophe in mind, even if others around you do not.

One vital aspect of survival that often goes unaccounted for by even the most astute preppers, however, is the issue of community. When the last vestiges of normal society crumble, will you be surrounded by friends or foes? The difference is not always apparent, as Rod Serling noted in the brilliant episode of the Twilight Zone above. The question then arises; how do we know who to work with, who to trust, and when to keep our mouths shut?  When the going gets brutal, who will have the guts to stand firm, who will run, and who will stab us right in the back if they get the chance?

Being a prepper for some years myself, and working with a myriad of character types, I have found that certain personality signals and quirks should be addressed in those who live around you, or those you plan to associate with. Certain kinds of people can be pure poison for any survivalist or any organization striving for practical solutions to collapse. Look at your neighbors and your associates carefully and with some objectivity. Do they fit any of the below profiles a little too well…?

The Lemming

This person lives life to the fullest, which by their definition essentially means working 9 to 5 in a job they despise with co-employees they hate, going home to watch reruns of The Apprentice while drinking away the pain of inadequacy, and bathing in the warm oily coconut butter glow of mainstream news before sinking into their soft feather bed of political ineptitude and dreaming sensible dreams of cult-like consumerist mayhem.

This kind of neighbor will likely freak at even the most non-invasive philosophies. Mention of voting for third party candidates draws googly eyed expressions of disbelief as if you just broke wind at their dinner table. Conversations of possible economic collapse inspire in them reactions of either complete dismissal along with skeptical cackling, or shrugged shoulders and passive solutions. They buy into anyone who happens to be in a position of petty authority and would jump into a septic tank filled with rusty nails if someone in an expensive suit or a white coat told them to.

In a post-collapse situation, this person will immediately look around for the first truck he can find filled with FEMA goodies. If he finds no government handouts are coming and that he is on his own, he will transform from a lackadaisical and humorously obscure human being into a rabid ax-wielding (yet still humorously obscure) murdering food stealing two-legged weasel. You do NOT want this person knowing who you are and living within 100 miles of you during a time of instability. They WILL show up at your doorstep…

Commonly spoken phrases include:

“I just want to have fun and not worry about stuff like that…”

“If we stay positive, it will all blow over…”

“That could NEVER happen in this country…”

The Rambo-Lite

A real badass…in his own mind. Unfortunately, not all activists make good neighbors for the well-grounded prepper. This “survivalist” is all talk and no action. All bark and no bite. His training methods consist solely of YouTube videos, shopping expeditions to Cabelas, and a trip to the shooting range once every three months. He talks a good game and may lure you into a cooperative agreement by regaling you with his ability to memorize information from Gun Digest, but when the full fury of a financial firestorm is unleashed, he will let you down in the worst way.

Rambo-Lite is like most men, in that he seeks opportunities to prove himself, and to one day, he hopes, be looked upon as a kind of hero. There is nothing wrong with this. However, being usually overweight or out of shape, our little friend is too lazy to pursue the skills necessary to fulfill such a destiny. On top of this, he often has extremely overblown delusions of grandeur and feels no need to heighten his knowledge. Why train when you already know everything? He is the kind of prepper that makes real preppers look bad.

Rambo-Lite has all kinds of gear, all kinds of advice, but will whine through the night during a cold winter march, never stay on task, never listen to the sage wisdom of those more experienced, and run at the first sign of substantial danger. Ultimately, he is an obstacle, not a comrade. When looking for neighbors who will provide mutual support in hard times, look elsewhere…

Commonly spoken phrases include:

“I don’t care about any of that! I just want to shoot blue helmets!”

“All I need is my hunting rifle and my bowie knife…”

“I don’t need to store food. I’ll just take other people’s…”

“I used to be a navy-seal-air-force-ranger-marine-scout-sniper-jiu-jitsu-master…”

The Cynic On Steroids

As if things aren’t bad enough, some people have to make them worse by constantly pointing out how unavoidably “doomed” we all are, and that the act of survival is in itself a waste of energy. This neighbor is quite aware of the scale of the dangers we face down the road as a culture, but instead of taking proactive measures to prepare and to help others around him, he does nothing and revels in the thought of widespread destruction. The warped dynamic of the modern American lifestyle has not been kind to this person. Of course, it has not been kind to most of us. Our Cynic reverts to a childish methodology of nihilism because he believes he has somehow been dealt a worse hand than anyone else, and the only thing that will satisfy him would be a hailstorm of napalm across the face of the planet.

Rarely leaves his home to organize with other activists, but when he does, the urge for most people to sink a fist into his scowling face is almost irresistible.

As excited as this guy is to see the world burn, he is actually very afraid of dying. Strangely, like most eugenicists, or members of PETA, in his darkest fantasies, he imagines a future in which nearly everyone meets a horrible gurgling end except himself. Unscathed by the genocide, he skips along his merry way in lush fields of dandelions and bunnies to meet the celebrity woman of his dreams (or any woman who will feel forced to settle because there are so few men left alive).

It goes without saying, this neighbor is not going to be of many services to anyone. Confronted with very real doom (namely his own), and realizing that his dreamworld musings of a day when he will have the Earth to himself are not going to come true, he will blame the closest and most successful preppers around him for his misfortunes. He won’t ask for food, and he won’t try to take it by force either. Instead, he’ll turn you to the authorities (if there are any left), or, he’ll attempt to snatch away what he can from those people weaker than him (if there are any left).

Commonly spoken phrases include:

“We’re all going to die anyway…”

“They have tanks and predator drones! You’ll be wiped off the map!”

“No woman is smart enough to understand me…”

The Snoop

Ah yes, my favorite! Every neighborhood in America has one of these dastardly specimens.Every apartment building, every city block, every gated community. The Snoop is like the Lemming in that they almost pride themselves on their unwillingness to listen to reason or consider facts, but the Snoop takes this one step further. Not only will you find them sneering at those of us who express independent or anti-establishment views, but they will also go out of their way to bring trigger-happy SWAT teams to our doorsteps. These are the people who actually call Janet Napolitano’s “See Something, Say Something” hotline thinking they are good samaritans.

The Snoop has been the mainstay of every tyrannical government of the last century, from Mussolini’s Italy to Franco’s Spain, Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Russia, Mao’s China, Pol Pot’s Cambodia, etc. Today, the Snoop is being tapped by the DHS and the Obama Administration as a resource once again within the borders of America itself.

Snoops fancy themselves, amateur detectives. They will ask odd probing questions that seem out of place in a regular conversation. They will form superficial friendships that feel even faker than many neighborhood relations tend to. Disapproval of your politics will be met not with arguments, but with silence, and increasing distance. Snoops reveal themselves through their addiction to gossip. Eventually, you will discover from other neighbors that they slander you constantly behind your back.

Under normal circumstances, this is something to be laughed at and ignored. But, post-collapse, it is something to be very concerned about. Snoops aren’t looking for the advantage, like the Cynic.They are looking for vindication and approval. They desperately want to be a part of a collective, and revile anyone who displays outward individualism. If turning you in, or organizing others against you, will bring them a pat on the head, they will do it.

The Snoop is a coward, and will never confront you directly. But, he or she will try to use the force of the state or the community against you if you offend their twisted worldview.

Commonly spoken phrases include:

“We really need to keep our eyes open for terrorists…”

“I hear the terrorists are using white people at bus stations now…”

“Liberty Movement? Isn’t that one of those homegrown terrorist groups?”

The Idle Enthusiast

Some people are absolutely gung-ho about supporting activist projects or organizing for mutual aid until the situation requires patience and effort. Then, they disappear from the scene, never to be heard from again. Most movements, especially grassroots movements, are rife with this behavior. Everyone wants to jump on the bandwagon after its moving at full speed; they don’t want to have to push it uphill. The same goes for prepping…

Getting the Idle Enthusiast excited about the prospect of community growth and survival training is not difficult. Getting him to show up to provide needed assistance is another matter. Without fail, this character will make numerous offers to carry a mission forward and will fail to follow through on almost every single occasion. After a while, you find yourself astonished when they accomplish ANYTHING, no matter how small the task.

Their prepping list is always half finished, their training is always half finished, and their promises are always half finished. The strain of asking them to apply even the most remedial effort becomes so painful that you’ll begin entertaining thoughts of violent pillow smothering and strangulation.

The Idle Enthusiast is the kind of neighbor who will volunteer for the most arduous projects. At first, they’ll leave you pleasantly surprised, and then, they’ll leave you hanging.

Commonly spoken phrases include:

“Don’t worry bro, I got this…”

“I’ll have that done in no time…”

“Oh man, I totally got sidetracked…”

The smart prepper understands well that going it alone is not an option, at least not for the long term. Thus, we are required to build relationships with those who live near us. If we cannot find enough like-minded souls in our immediate vicinity, then we must relocate to a place where this process is more viable (at least, if we want to survive). Staying put, wrapped in a web of tract homes or city dwellings filled with dangerously unaware and unprepared people is not an intelligent post-collapse strategy. Retreat planning without proper group support and indigenous support is not only a logistical nightmare but a surefire avenue to the discomfort of the terminal variety.

Think carefully about the kinds of people you want to have around you in the wake of a disaster, and the community you plan to participate in after the smoke has cleared. The decisions you make now may be the kind you are stuck with for quite some time through events that will test your endurance and your very spirit. The more friendships we forge today with those who are prepared not just in supply, but in mind, the safer we will all be tomorrow. The company we keep in the days ahead is not a factor to be taken lightly…

How to Prepare For An Unthinkable Crisis!

There is still time for you to prepare, but you have to start learning how to make your own survival foods as soon as humanly possible (follow this link or watch the video below). The best way to do it is to get the inside scoop on how to do it right.
Fortunately, there is a way to get twenty years worth of The Lost Ways. This new food storage system is called The Lost Ways. You do not need a lot of expensive equipment to store foods for a crisis using the methods taught here. Even better, The Lost Ways pay for itself quickly as you begin to put away garden produce or even meats that you buy on sale. For most folks, it’s simply the biggest bargain of their lives. You can finally become self-sufficient and any extra money saved in food expense goes right back to your pocket. Frankly, at the end of the day, The Lost Ways actually makes you money! What’s more, the videos take you by the hand, step by step, through the entire process of “putting away” almost any food you can think of. It’s very much like having a food storage professional right there with you every step of the way.

Are You Ready To Go Into SURVIVAL MODE? The more people that have supplies, the less desperation and potential crime there will be

The following is a monologue with Clyde Lewis that I wanted to share with all my readers.

I know that at the moment, the daily conversation is being monopolized by the mountain of reports about COVID-19.  While the conversation is dominated by death tolls and political attacks there is a conversation about it that will not be shared in the national news and that is how there is a medical surveillance state that is most certainly detailing and recording data about how nations are responding to the outbreak.

There is also that secret assumption that the COVID-19 outbreak is part of many attempts at an elaborate culling of the populace to bring about a series of mass mortality events that will wipe out animals and eventually humans.

You see, in their quest for global sustainability the elite would not think twice about seeing the deaths of millions of people.  You may think I am crazy but they don’t see you as anything but fodder and collateral damage. Just a figure in the number crunching of compensation budgets and money given to rebuild what they have destroyed.

Yes, we are all the small people. We have always been that way.  We are just the slaves who give them carte blanche to build a new world for them.

We are all watching this waiting for it all to have some happy ending.

I can’t help but remember the comments Steven Spielberg made when he was asked why he remade the movie “War of the Worlds.” His comments were that he wanted the United States to see what life would be like if we thrust into the refugee experience.

While the motion picture so brilliantly painted the picture of a world torn apart by an alien attack it also demonstrated how human behavior can become so primitive and at the same time appear to be so thick.

For example, the movie begins with a horrible lightning storm. The main character played by Tom Cruise find the strange lightning to be entertaining and his childlike interest seems to turn off his little girl who has a survival instinct.  She demands that they hide in the house.

The lightning gets more violent and then stops.

He then leaves the house to see where it all struck.  He winds up in the center of the community near a church. There is a big hole where everyone has gathered. The hole spews force ice and then the ground starts to rumble and crack.

People are still gathered around the area where the hole has formed.  Then the hole turns into a mound of dirt and pushing through is a large machine with a huge headlight and three legs.  People are now snapping pictures with their cell phones and using video cameras to record the event.

The Tri-pod machine rears back and a loud horn is heard.  The Horn is dreadfully frightening and people still are watching the monster machine.

The mechanism then extends its arms.  Electric arcs start to emit from the two pronged hands of these gargantuan tri-pods.

It is then people get the clue.

They run.

For some it is too late, they are pulverized where they stand.

The question is when would you have run away?  For me I would have high tailed out the minute I saw the ground crack open. 

I know that it is fiction but when would you have the common sense to know that when the earth rumbles the first time – you should be ready to take cover and hopefully be prepared.

I spoke of this before at a Contact in the Desert lecture and people tell me – most people would have run away.

Now with COVID-19 happening, I am beginning to see that Spielberg knew a little something about human behavior and how some people wish to wait it out for something spectacular to happen and sometimes it is too late.

If you happen to find yourself on social media, you will notice how people try to put up courageous front dealing with COVID-19 by denying it’s lethality.

The first argument that I see all the time is “This is a False Flag to just sell vaccines.” Well, that would be true if there was a vaccine to sell – even if there was one in the wings no one would be able to afford it,

I have been hearing announcements by government officials and the media hinting that a vaccine is “right around the corner”.  There may be some companies out there promising a vaccine but let’s face it – it is not coming around the corner anytime soon.

On average a vaccine takes 1 year to develop at minimum.  That is the fastest it could be accomplished and this is under the best possible circumstances. 

Also, keep in mind that COVID-19 has many similarities to SARS, and the last time they tried to develop a vaccine for SARS it caused an “immunopathologic lung reaction” in test animals, meaning a negative reaction that can cause death.  They also found the vaccine caused liver damage through hepatitis.  Besides I don’t think you should trust any vaccine or drug cocktail coming from the CDC and FEMA, especially if it is fast-tracked into existence.

The only purpose to constantly injecting vaccine promises into the public consciousness would be to give people false hope and to make them docile as they sit inactive waiting for the authorities to save the day.

It is also a ploy to restore faith in the stock market.

Chances are there will be no legitimate vaccine produced in 2020.

But that won’t stop the naysayer whose cynicism encourages behavior that can be seen as passive—or oblivious—or stupid.

Just saying this draws the ire of your friendly neighborhood troll that believes that since it isn’t happening to them – it is all unwarranted panic.

They post things on the internet pretending that they have an inside scoop with videos that actually back up their bias. Most of the producers of videos make claims that they are insiders, former spies, former illuminati dole out the conspiracy theory du jour about why there appears to be panic being generated by the left leaning media.

What is ironic is that most people who accuse those who are prepared of being panicking chicken littles –deep down are scared witless and cover up their latent fear with denial.

To be honest I really have not seen many panic stories about the virus, only that the death toll increases daily and that the elections are far more important than giving sound information about what to do.

 I have been hearing it said that Americans are “in a panic” over the coronavirus outbreak in the US, and that mainstream media outlets are “feeding the fear”.   There are also people who are embellishing the reports by posting that the CDC said that Ebola was going to kill us all, that the flu was going to kill us all or remember Y2K?

Well I really don’t remember hearing that any of these things were going to kill us all but there was a stern warning to be prepared for anything.  While the past virus scares have amounted to big nothings. What is most concerning is that this time it is not that COVID-19 is going to kill us all – it is going disrupt our way of life for a while regardless of its lethality.

Until recently the mainstream media was also been pumping out article after article on why Covid-19 is “no more dangerous than the flu”.  Which flies in the face of those that believe the media is driving fear. In fact the mainstream media has actually failed in reporting that now the official death rate is now at 2.3% to 3% – it is changing by the week.

So far, the COVID-19 virus is killing off the elderly, and those with underlying conditions.

It is official that COVID-19 has a higher mortality than the average flu.

The CDC is not calling it a pandemic yet but this might change soon and when it does we as Americans are going to have to adapt to some changes that can and will disrupt your life.

I always say when strange things happen, we define strange and find something or some event that we can compare it to in order to fully understand what may or may not happen.

It is a point of learning from past histories.

Now, the only way we can determine what is in store for us if they declare a pandemic is to look at how China and other countries are handling of have handled an outbreak.

China has been our role model for all things dystopian, where the contagion started.

If we take into account the fact that multiple medical professionals within China have revealed, despite threats of punishment that the Chinese government is hiding the true and much higher death and infection statistics, then the official data goes out the window. 

We can’t even trust the infection numbers from the CDC in the US, because they been refusing to test most people unless they have recently traveled to China or Italy or some other infected country.

Because of government lies, we have to assume that the crisis is more pervasive than we know.  And so far the average American is oblivious to it. While we do see a handful of videos of crowds stockpiling supplies at Costco or Walmart, there simply is not enough of them.

Americans are not used to this, they are not used to food shortages, or bank runs, or stores and public places being placed in quarantine. Americans aren’t use to being told no – or being told to stay indoors or avoid public contact.

Americans have had the luxury of asking for the vegan alternative, or the gluten free life, or the fast food rush and all of this may have to be forfeited for some time as some people will have to go into survival mode.

I wish that the government would give the official word to stock up on necessities and allocate more for the supermarkets and food banks to have on hand, but there is only a limited supply of three days of food for each store per market per neighborhood and then you have to wait for shipments to arrive before you can get your hands on more of the things you need if you are told to shelter in place.

The more people that have supplies, the less desperation and potential crime there will be.

If you are one of those that believe that the panic is being orchestrated for some darker conspiracy, perhaps you should also look at the probability that perhaps the government and those behind the outbreak are counting on your passivity and your refusal to prepare.

If they can convince you not to prepare, then they have your dependence on them to provide things for you at a cost. Which of course furthers the discussion about how America needs socialism.

After all, if you are not self-sufficient who are you going to run to when everything collapses?  The government? So think of it in those terms rather that thinking this is a conspiracy to undermine the President.

It can and will undermine our freedoms if we continue to be passive.

The government, while admitting that the virus is spreading, will continue to downplay the threat to keep people as apathetic as they can. The authorities will claim that this was done “for the greater good” in order to avoid mass panic, but they don’t care about preventing “panic”, they care about control.  The more desperate people are in the aftermath of a crisis the more likely they are to trade their freedoms for some semblance of security.

In the United States it does not matter what the nature of the crisis might be—civil unrest, the national emergencies, “unforeseen economic collapse, loss of functioning political and legal order, purposeful domestic resistance or insurgency, pervasive public health emergencies, and catastrophic natural and human disasters”—as long as it allows the government to justify all manner of government tyranny in the so-called name of national security.

In an attempt to fight the epidemic, the government has given its surveillance state apparatus, which boasts the most expansive and sophisticated surveillance system in the world—free rein. Thermal scanners using Artificial Intelligence (AI) have been installed at train stations in major cities to assess body temperatures and identify anyone with a fever. Facial recognition cameras and cell phone carriers track people’s movements constantly, reporting in real time to data centers that can be accessed by government agents and employers alike. And coded color alerts (red, yellow and green) sort people into health categories that correspond to the amount of freedom of movement they’re allowed: “Green code, travel freely. Red or yellow, report immediately.”

Mind you, prior to the coronavirus outbreak, the Chinese surveillance state had already been hard at work tracking its citizens through the use of some 200 million security cameras installed nationwide. Equipped with facial recognition technology, the cameras allow authorities to track so-called criminal acts, such as jaywalking, which factor into a person’s social credit score.

It has also given China the excuse the use of their surveillance state to find those they believe are political foes of the communist regime.

Fighting the coronavirus epidemic has given China the perfect excuse for unleashing the full force of its surveillance and data collection powers. 

The lesson for the ages: once any government is allowed to expand its powers, it’s almost impossible to pull back.

Meanwhile, here in the U.S., the government thus far has limited its coronavirus preparations to missives advising the public to stay calm, wash their hands, and cover their mouths when they cough and sneeze.

Don’t go underestimating the government’s ability to lock the nation down if the coronavirus turns into a pandemic, however. After all, the government has been planning and preparing for such a crisis for years now.

The CDC warned us that Clade X and Disease X’s arrival was all but certain two years ago. Event 201 warned of COVID-19’s arrival just two months before it was released into the populace.

This is not conspiracy theory but fact.

It is more than obvious that Disease X is COVID-19 and the overresponse is the calculated activity that is being recorded for a future plague that will be far more relentless that this one.

The building blocks are already in place for such an eventuality: the surveillance networks, fusion centers and government contractors that already share information in real time; the government’s massive biometric databases that can identify individuals based on genetic and biological markers; the militarized police, working in conjunction with federal agencies, ready and able to coordinate with the federal government when it’s time to round up the targeted individuals; the courts that will sanction the government’s methods, no matter how unlawful, as long as it’s done in the name of national security; and the detention facilities, whether private prisons or FEMA internment camps, that have been built and are waiting to be filled.

The ramifications of a government any government having this much unregulated, unaccountable power to target, track, round up and detain its citizens is beyond chilling.

Going by the speed of the outbreaks in Italy and South Korea, it is likely that two weeks from now the American public will finally realize how bad the situation actually is.  The government at this stage will demand “voluntary quarantine” of individuals who think they might have the virus.  Testing will finally increase, though hospitals will have to test each person 2-3 times to get accurate results.  Expect a lot of false negatives that end up ultimately as positives for the infection.

At the projected rate and keep in mind this is potential hypothesis based on spread rates within the next two months we will probably see at least a handful of government enforced quarantines. 

The quarantines will not be happening in every state; after all, we are a big country but every state and every area will have its COVID-19 moment in due time.

It may not be a quarantine that you have to worry about – it may be checkpoints going up on main roads and highways testing for fever and symptoms, especially on dense population areas.

The biggest threat may not be the virus but the subsequent financial crash where resource supply lines are cut off. 

Without organization and a move to become self-sustainable, some people will inevitably turn to violence to get what they need.

This is where you may want to think long and hard about that second amendment right and how to apply it during a crisis where you and your family are being threatened.

We need to be less dependent on the system and more self-sufficient. The solution is a self-quarantine organized around a local model, not federal government enforcement.  If these measures are not taken soon by individuals with foresight, the elites within the establishment will make this particular crisis into a hell on earth for everyone.

A lot of people are unaware that when Clade X- Disease X- and Event-201 were carried out at John’s Hopkins University, the eventual death toll was high but there was another estimate that was high – the estimates for resource dependence and the demand for government institutions to provide for the sick and those who did not have resources to survive.

People were forced to depend on their governments for goods and services that they should have had for themselves.

In the end the governments were not able to meet the demand.

The “Event 201” pandemic exercise which simulated CAPS a coronavirus outbreak killing 65 million people came up with a solution to bring balance to the crisis and that was a newly organized global financial authority to manage the response. 

They actually ignored the resilience of the people, the offerings of churches and charities and the localized focus of state and local government to help on a case by case basis.

The end goal was an excuse for globalization.

If it was seen as an excuse for globalization. It also can be seen as an excuse to breed passivity and complacence.

This thwarts the need for preparedness, and eventually leaves you to be dependent on your government.

Isn’t that what the anti-socialists are fighting against? Government dependence?

 It is so confusing because there are a lot conservative trolls on Facebook that are downplaying the need to prepare claiming that this whole thing is a hoax.

Think of it as a fire drill or a test of your will. While you still have some freedom, you should get prepared now.

For some people, a pandemic scenario could be dismissed as alarmist paranoia but it has to be considered when more than 100 scientists in the field of bio-terror, biology, genetics and medicine have been systematically targeted and killed. Most of these scientists died horrible deaths resulting from car crashes, plane crashes, murder, suicides and poison.

In almost every single case, the perpetrators of these crimes were never apprehended, let alone tried or convicted for the crimes that they committed. The only plausible explanation for the deaths of so many medical professionals in the field of microbiology is that these particular individuals had intimate knowledge of various biological pathogens or other medical knowledge that posed a direct threat to those who were seeing a global pandemic as a way to bring about mass scarcity and the culling of the elderly.

Not preparing makes it easier for a government to take full control of you and create restrictions to disrupt your life.

Remember, even the most well-intentioned government law or program can be and has been perverted, corrupted and used to advance illegitimate purposes once profit and power are added to the equation.

In the right or wrong hands, benevolent plans can easily be put to malevolent purposes.

So wash your hands. Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. And stock up on whatever you might need to survive this virus if it spreads to your community.

You may feel as though you are too proud to be a prepper but wouldn’t you like to a be a prepper too?

Making a “Last Run” When the SHTF

The last-minute grocery and emergency supply shopping run is part of prepper mythology. Whether or not it makes sense to do a “last run” shopping trip is very controversial in the prepper community and has both positive and negative aspects. Whether or not to do so requires considerable forethought and mental preparation.

I know some preppers are horrified by the idea of intentionally utilizing a last run to top-off or expand supplies. It’s great to be able to hunker down with a mug of hot buttered rum in front of the fireplace and watch the snow come down or snuggle down with a good book to read by LED lantern light, but one of the key characteristics of preppers is their ability to take advantage of a changing situation and making it work for them.

I don’t recommend a last run be your first choice in emergency preparedness, but a last run can have advantages that may be worth exploiting. If you choose to conduct a last run, you aren’t less of a person or less of a prepper. You haven’t failed your family or yourself. You’ve simply made a reasoned, conscious choice to capitalize on another opportunity when every opportunity is important.

In most apocalyptic fiction, the main characters suddenly awaken to the immensity and criticality of their End of the World As We Know It (TEOTWAWKI) situation and run to the store to stock up on supplies that virtually every long-time prepper worth his or her salt has already stashed. The fictional characters always have working automobiles, always have a respectable amount of cash on hand, and always manage to arrive at the store ahead of the soon-to-become violent crowd.

Really? Figure the odds.

In the main I agree with most posters, a final run is possibly/probably not a good idea, maybe.

If you’re talking about a last run to Walmart, then maybe you run the chance of getting into the middle of where you don’t want to be. However, there are lots of other sorts of “final runs”, such as to the bank, the gas station, the feed store, and others. How safe a final run is can depend on how fast, prepared and organized you are, and what particular goal you have in mind.

When 911 happened, I was in the barn working on something. When the news about the first tower came over the radio, I decided to go to the house to see what was on TV. I got there just in time to see the second tower get hit. Over the next hour, reports came in that we were under attack. The Pentagon was hit, there were reports of shots or a bomb at the State Department, the President was taken into hiding, a plane was in the air heading for DC, and there were all kinds of other reports and rumors. Then two fighter jets flew low over my house chasing a small plane. (That was really impressive!) It seemed early that first day that things might really be coming apart. Every bit of me wanted to sit and watch what was happening.

I also thought if things were going to go south, there were some chores to do. There were various tractor parts I had planned on picking up the next week. I also wanted another milk goat. So, I jumped in the truck and took off. It was remarkable. There was no one driving. It appeared everyone was watching, instead of acting. When I got to Tractor Supply, it was a ghost town. The lone clerk complained he wanted to close the store so he could go home and watch the news like everybody else. I was able to stock up with no problem.

When I arrived at the goat farm, I got the nanny also with no delay. I don’t recall the farmer even knowing of the events. He didn’t have a radio in his barn like I did. (Had the event been a nuke from N. Korea instead of several commercial planes, he might have been in a tough spot not knowing what was happening.) Since then I have occasionally wondered if things had really gotten bad that day/week if goat guy would have been so quick to sell what might later have become a prime asset. Early on, he was happy to make the deal.

My third stop was at the feed store for some additional 100 lb. bags of corn and 80 lb. bags of wheat and oats. Animals eat, and not a bit of that extra grain would go to waste if nothing more happened. If things really did get nuts, several hundreds of pounds of additional animal feed would feed a heck of a lot of people. Our supply store also sells a wide variety of heirloom and open-pollinated seeds. No matter how many seeds you have, seeds is simply one of those things you can’t have too much of. There will very possibly be fewer seeds available for trade than even antibiotics and lead. Of course, the feed stores have fertilizers, sulfur, soil amendments, and Epson salts. I picked up a bit of all of those.

The day was passing and still very few people were out and moving. All three of these possible “final runs” were very quiet and easy, on a day that could have turned out to be a much greater long-term disaster. Had more planes dropped or bombs had gone off and if the terrorists had planned even greater evil and blown the power grid at the same time, people would have very likely panicked at some point. But early on, before folks got moving and were still just sitting in shock watching, a final run was safe. Thank God that day didn’t continue to grow worse, but in the early hours no one knew, and I felt it was better to act than to sit and hope.

Not too long ago another event happened. The stock market went down 500 points one morning. There for a short while, no one knew what it meant. I called my brother who lives on the farm next door and said, “Let’s go.” We got to our local bank within 10 minutes of the first radio report so we could clean out our accounts, just in case, there was some sort of Wall Street/bank shut down. The bank folks (who we have known for a long time, as networking is a good thing) said they were well aware of events and the central office had already put them on notice to be ready for possible orders to close their doors. We apologized to them for withdrawing our money and we said we hoped we wouldn’t feel too bad or too foolish if we came back the next day to redeposit if nothing happened. The manager was entirely sympathetic and said they had even had a couple people in before us doing the same thing.

My brother and I then went to our second stop– the local gas station– to fill up our gas cans. Please note to those folks who claim to have a 10-year supply of everything on hand, on a farm one thing you always need is to top off your fuel supply. There just aren’t that many days you don’t run a tractor, chainsaw, mower, and/or generator. You can always use more fuel, and the cash we had just gotten out of the bank was going to hold much better value as gas than greenbacks might have been worth in a meltdown.

My brother and I returned home, satisfied that if for some reason commerce stopped that day, we were a bit better prepared. We had gotten cash and gas before any possible rush or shut down had happened.

Over the years I have, of course, become well prepared for “what may come”. I have certain ideas about what is best, including prepping for the next several generations, instead of merely 10 or 20 years. But I also try to be mindful of preparing for other possibilities. I often remind myself to not get rigid. Sure, it’s not a good idea to go to Target when a thousand other people are also there grabbing things, but nevertheless, I have prepared to do just that. You never know what will happen, so prepare for it. Something I’ve done with the big box planning is to make maps of exactly where the things are located that I might want in a rush. One of our local big box stores has routinely carried exactly three 25lb. bags of salt. It’s on a bottom self and hard to find. With the map, it’s easy. It’s halfway down aisle 3, bottom shelf, on the left. I don’t have to search. I don’t have to look. I don’t have to think or remember. Just go. Simple. I’ve also marked muck boots, spices, OTC drugs, canning jar lids, and other such items usually not craved in a panic. While most folks will be grabbing canned tuna and meat, I may be off to the side picking up pepper and sewing machine needles. So if I do decide I should go, at least I wouldn’t be in the middle of the worst of the fuss.

We’ve done that with every store within a certain distance. I don’t plan on going there. But if something unexpected happens and we decide we must, it’s much simpler, quicker, and safer with a map and plan than it might be otherwise. You might also check at your stores to see if they have store maps. The stores here provide them for anyone who asks, in order to help them in their shopping. Another thing a map accomplishes is that when “things happen” and our group gathers here, it’s simple to send out folks to various locations to pick up items if we decide it’s worth the effort or risk. We can just hand out a map and a supply list and simply say, “Go.” No discussion and no descriptions are needed, just go. If you can get to where you are going fast enough, and especially before the rush, things get much easier.

Another thing we do is to go to one of the local grocery stores every day to pick up the produce they throw out. It makes great free chicken and pig food, and since some of it just came off the sales shelves it’s still good for us to eat (but please don’t tell them that). We go knock on the back door of the huge store about noon every day, and there they are waiting. We go inside and talk a bit, look around while talking, and make friends. There is an incredible amount of food and such in the back rooms and loading docks of any major store. While the hoards are fighting in the store’s front, it just may be possible to meet your store “friends” and load up out back. Maybe not, but it’s worth investigating and considering. (Once again, networking can be a very good thing.)

So the point of all this is to remain flexible. In general, it may be best to not make a “final run”, but you just never know. With the right planning and forethought, a final run can be highly productive and even very safe. You may never get a second chance at an opportunity, so be ready to move fast if the right situation presents because you may be just as mistaken if you aren’t prepared to make the right move of opportunity as you are if you make the wrong move in the panic.


HOW TO SETUP A SEALED/QUARANTINE ROOM

Setting up a quarantine room is something that isn’t often discussed in prepper circles, yet it’s a topic that deserves more attention. Even if a pandemic never occurs, ordinary diseases will become much more dangerous in a post-collapse world that no longer enjoys the benefits of modern medicine. hile dealing with illness in a survival scenario requires a detailed, multi-faceted approach, being able to set up a medical quarantine room is an important first step.

A safe room is an ultra-secure location within a residence. The concept of a safe room is simple, prepare a room within the interior of the home where the family can safely retreat during a threat and wait for help while potentially lowering the potential of the threat.

SEALING A SAFE ROOM

Pick a room with few, or if possible, no windows. Higher stories are better because chemical agents sink. If possible, pick a room with water, a toilet(makeshift if need be) and an electrical outlet. Set aside plenty of duct tape for sealing, doors,windows and vents. Prepare a 72 hour Go Pack and keep it in the room. Keep inexpensive breathing filters in the room, rated at N95 or better for each family member.

HOW TO PREPARE THE SEALED ROOM

All supplies should already be in the room.

To seal a room in a bio-chem emergency, first shut off all air intakes into the house (heat, air, attic fans, ceiling fans, etc.). If your home is heated with gas or uses gas appliances, shut off the gas. Get into the sealed room , and take your gas mask with you if you have one. In the selected room, run tape along any windows where the glass joins the sill, where the sill meets the frame, and over all window seams and joins.

Entirely cover the windows with polethylene sheeting, trash bags or painter’s drop plastic sheeting that you can buy at the dollar tree or plastic shower curtains, anchoring the sheeting on every side on the wall around the window, and seal the sheeting to the wall thoroughly with duct tape.

When all the members of the family have entered the room, complete the sealing of the room by using adhesive tapes such as duck tape, packing tape, masking tape or painter’s tape between the door and the frame and between the frame and the wall. The space between the door and the floor should be covered with a towel. I’d pack that in firmly and seal it with duct tape as well.

Leave the front door unlocked, so as to allow rescue units to get into the house if needed. Your room still may not be perfectly air tight, but the air intake is quite diminished. Turn on the radio to get information.

Wait for an “All Clear” from the radio or from local municipal rescue/defense.
The wait could last for several hours.

Ideally, a sealed room has its own emergency filter that blocks particles and purifies the air from toxins. In the event of an emergency though, tape a towel to the back of the door so that it drapes over the space between the floor and the bottom of the door and lightly tuck it under to act as a filter but still allow some air flow into a room. When there is no door but an archway is sealed with plastic, cut a 4 inch by 4 inch hole in the plastic sheeting at head level then tape a towel over the hole to act as an air filter using a bleach/water solution periodically sprayed on the towel if a biological threat and vinegar if chemical or just plain water for radioactive dust.

HOW TO CREATE A QUARANTINE ROOM

Using a separate room then your safe room either on the first floor or the foyer area of the front door. Using duck tape and plastic sheeting such as mentioned earlier, seal off the area, but only either unlocking a window or the door by which potentially contaminated persons can enter the room. Place 72 hours worth of food and water along with the means to wash themselves and several trash bags, a change of clothing
and a means of using the toilet, be it a bucket or a cooking pot and the necessary supplies to re-seal the room.

Once all the supplies are placed in the area, seal off the area and signal the person or persons to enter the quarantine area. Once they are inside direct them to seal their entrance into the room and strip off all clothing and place them in a trash bag and then place that trash bag in another trash bag and seal it as well by tying it then taping it shut.

Next, have them wash themselves with soap and water paying extra attention to their hair placing the dirty water and rags in the makeshift toilet only if using soap and water,
never urinate in any solution containing bleach as there is a chemical reaction between the ammonia in your urine and chlorine bleach creating a toxic chlorine gas that eats holes in your lungs and will kill you in an hour or so depending on the concentration of the gas and the size of the quarantine room.

Have them put on the new, clean clothes and get comfortable because they will have to remain there for 72 hours before entering the rest of the house with everyone else to ensure that they are not infected of a biological agent, if chemical a noted response should be visiable in hours. Keep the supplies ready so you can re-use the quarantine room again if need be. If it is a radiological threat, once they have washed and changed clothes they should be able to join the rest of the group in the house.

If the threat is radiological, which ever side of the safe room you are using that is closest to an exterior house wall should be layered in radiation shielding material at least 3 feet high for you and your family to hide behind. This can be tipping over your refrigerator, re-positioning your washer and dryer, filling a plastic tub with water or stacking cases of bottled water. Draw a diagram of your first floor of your house. Now draw where all metal doors, fire places, and all large typical household metal appliances such as washer/dryer/dish washer/refrigerator and stove are.

Now draw straight lines from the edges of these items through the house in the direction aiming towards the center of the house and shade in the area between the lines as if they were casting a shadow. These shaded areas are initial areas with lowered intensity potential for radiation penetration into your home.

Pick a room where these shaded areas intersect and either is or close to the center of the house’s floor plan, this room is typically the laundry room or pantry on the first floor or the kitchen or half bath nearest the main corridor in apartments. These areas will usually offer the greatest shielding and distance from radioactive fallout’s radiation emissions.

HOW TO DECONTAMINATE YOURSELF

In order to decontaminate for radioactive dust or ash:

Remove all clothing and place inside a plastic trash bag then double seal it by placing it in another trash bag and sealing it with tape. Next, scrub yourself with soap and water paying extra attention to your hair and the exposed parts of your body with hair such as your arms, legs and face. Blow your nose or clean out your nostrils with tissue.

In order to decontaminate for a biological agent:

Remove all clothing and place inside a plastic trash bag then double seal it by placing it in another trash bag and sealing it with tape. Next, scrub yourself with 1 part bleach and 10 parts water solution over your body paying special attention to your finger nails but not your hair, face or sensitive areas, where you should use soap and water. Blow your nose or clean out your nostrils with tissue.

In order to decontaminate for chemical agent:

Remove all clothing and place inside a plastic trash bag then double seal it by placing it in another trash bag and sealing it with tape. Next, using either activated charcoal, regular(non-quick lighting) charcoal briquettes(if it smells like lighter fluid then don’t use it) or crushed wood coals(refer to how to make coal), scrub your skin that was exposed to the chemical agent to include your face, neck and exposed arms and legs then wash it off with soap and water. Blow your nose or clean out your nostrils with tissue.

RISK FACTORS FOR A BIOLOGICAL ATTACK:

All biological weapons have a high failure rate in terrorist attacks because even though they are quite deadly, dispersal/delivery of them in an effective way is difficult. Changes in ph of air quality, changes in temperature and humidity, changes in environment, and life span of the entity itself make efficient delivery of these bacteria and viruses difficult.

Anthrax has a very small rate of “secondary uptake,” which means that once it hits the ground, it tends to end its delivery cycle. People who shelter in sealed rooms would have the unpleasant task of waiting it out for hours (as long as 24 hours) before they could move, and then would have to wait for days to see if they were infected or not, but as long as they remained calm and secluded from sprayed or “treated” (ie, infected) areas, they could escape infection.

Smallpox is far more persistent than Anthrax, (though less fatal, with a mortality rate at about 33% – 66%), and people at ground zero of an attack would fare the worst. But once it has been identified, people secure from the initial infection would have to be prepared to quarantine themselves to avoid contact from victims whose symptoms would not appear for several weeks. As difficult as this is, our society is better equipped to do this than it’s ever been before. Telecommuting is a fact of life.

Dispersing biological agents in a crop dusting plane is currently the quickest, most effective scenario yet envisioned. But the plane would have to fly quite low to drop enough of a concentration in a stable medium.

The more likely and dangerous alternative is for a biological weapon to be entered into the water supply unless it is a more contagious and aggressive biological agent. Filtering and water purification in the home may hinder the effectiveness of such a plan, and certainly boiling water for six minutes would probably kill any biological entity. But poisoning could occur and last for several days before symptoms appear. Drinking bottled water or at least boiling all water that comes from the tap (for six minutes) before you drink it might be a good precautionary step, if you fear a biological attack.

Chemical warfare terrorism is much more likely in terms of past successes with chemical agents. Mustard gas canisters can be opened and their vapors simply allowed to disperse—no explosions, no bursts of munitions, just quiet vapors. Their damage would not be known for a couple days. An unsuspecting and crowded public could suffer catastrophic pain, injury, blindness, and loss of life two days after the fact of exposure.

This is one of the most realistic and horrifying of scenarios. Yet it is one that an educated public can prevent. Do not stand in any area where vapors are escaping. Teach your children not to stand in plumes of smoke or run through any vaporous substance. Iraq used mustard gas in smoke bombs, thus enticing Iranian soldiers to run into the smoke to pursue supposedly retreating enemy soldiers. It was a highly successful ruse.

People in crowded or enclosed places are in the greatest danger of a terrorist chemical agent attack. Granted, a city might just get bombed by chemical warheads, but that scenario is not nearly as likely as a crowded building being sealed off from the outside and a chemical agent introduced into the ventilation system or simply opened up in the corners.

We know that subways, terminals, even trains and planes are in the most danger of attacks like these. As are crowded buildings—especially theaters, which have no
windows and are dark.

Many people buy gas masks, but chem-bio weapons can strike when a gas mask and bio-suit are out of range. And for the terrorist, that’s the ideal situation. So the answer is to be smarter than terrorists. Avoid crowded and dark, enclosed building interiors that rely heavily on a ventilation system rather than open windows and fresh air. Visit enclosed buildings only when it’s necessary, in their off-peak hours. (Remember, as we learned on September 11, our enemies like to make grand displays in very public places.) For example, go to the mall as soon as it opens or at around three in the afternoon on weekdays: NOT on Saturdays at noon. Don’t go to movies on opening night.

If you are in a crowded, enclosed building, always know where the exits are and your path to reach them. Don’t linger; just complete your tasks and leave. Simply being very aware of your immediate environment has always been the first good defense.

By Failing To Prepare, You Are Preparing To Fail—THE REALITY AND MORTAL DANGERS, OF NOT PREPPING

How many of you have heard the famous Benjamin Franklin quote, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail?” If this is your first time seeing it, read it again. I cannot stress the importance of these wise words enough.

In this article, I detail some hardcore realities to show just how awful it will be for those that don’t prep. Every one of these scenarios is something that has occurred to the non-prepper throughout history.  While strong images come to mind, the purpose is to jar some people out of their inaction and into action before it is too late.

Preppers are good people and care much about those around them, and unless something does jar those around them that choose not to prep, their own survival chances could be reduced.  For every bit of food, water, ammunition, or supplies you sacrifice to the non-prepper, the fewer irreplaceable supplies are left for you and your family in a crisis situation.  It is hoped that the following can help certain people put into TRUE perspective just how horrific it will be for those that don’t prepare.

As preppers, we have to prepare for two sets of possible future adverse circumstances.  The first is to prepare for some sort of event that interferes with LAWKI (life as we know it), and which diminishes our quality of life to a greater or not quite so great extent, for a short or long time period.

While we all responsibly prepare for the short-term minor events (what we term Level 1 events) the really big deal is preparing for the Level 2 or 3 events.

But even this is relatively easy, because we sort of know what things we’ll need, and if we start from an assumption that we’ll be on our own with no external support, no external sources of water, food or energy, we can plan for that worst case but clearly understood the scenario.

Must read: When The Pharmacies Won’t Be An Option: Herbal and Natural Therapies For Diabetes After The SHTF

One of the defining points of the transition from a Level 1 event to a Level 2 or 3 event is the need to leave our normal residence in a Level 2/3 event.  And the reason for needing to do this?  There are several reasons, but the most pressing one is usually the need to ensure our own personal safety.

In a higher density city type environment, we’ll be surrounded by unprepared people who, as the Level 2 event unfolds, will quickly run out of food and out of self-control.  We anticipate lawlessness will reign, and see our safety and survival as best achieved by leaving the lawless city behind us.

But even in our Level 2/3 retreat situation, we necessarily should continue to be concerned about the actions of non-prepared people, because this is the other major adverse circumstance we will have to endure and survive in a major event – the anticipated but unknown negative actions of our fellow citizens.

The Unknown Variables Posed By Non-Preppers

Please excuse us if you don’t share a similar viewpoint about the anticipated negative actions of non-preppers in a major breakdown of society.  May we explain?

Our perception is based on what we feel to be a gritty reality – people will do whatever they have to do in order to survive if the circumstances are extreme enough.  Sure, we believe in the innate goodness of people, the same as you do, but we also believe that when people – and their families – are starving to death; if they see a chance to get life-sustaining food, they will do anything and everything they possibly can to take that food, no matter what is required.

This sort of motivation can make honest decent people into criminals.

We also acknowledge that while most people are basically good, unfortunately, some people are basically bad.  You already know this, too.  You call those types of people murderers, sex offenders, arsonists, violent offenders of all sorts, gang members, and so on.  You probably support their incarceration, whole of life sentencing, ‘three strikes and you’re out’ laws, and maybe even the death penalty.  Even the most idealistic of people can’t close their eyes to the ongoing level of violence that goes on in our society today.

The underlying reasons or demographics are irrelevant – the ugly but unavoidable fact is that some people are just plain bad.  Almost 1% of our population is in jail on any given day, and you can decide how many more percent should be with them, and you can worry about the former inmates that are now free but not reformed.

We see those good people will be forced to do bad things due to the underlying basic imperative need to survive.  But we also see those bad people will do very bad things, just because they can and want to, for fun, and because the normal law and order imperatives will be massively weakened (as is repeatedly shown, all around the world, in gratuitous rioting and looting events).

Planning For Encounters With Malefactors

So, we wonder and worry about what to expect as we shelter inside our retreats.  More to the point, we don’t just wonder/worry about what we’ll do while safely inside our retreat.  We also worry/wonder about when we’re exposed outside – doing gardening, tending to livestock, traveling to the neighbor to trade our surplus foodstuffs for his, and so on.

Some people have developed elaborate theories about the types of encounters they’ll have.  Some people support their theories by referring to what has occurred in other societies during times of social disorder.  Other people have developed very different theories, possibly supported by very different factual underpinnings.

Who is right?  What can we expect?  And, as preppers, the essential question we ask ourselves is sure – How can we prepare for such events?

Plan and Prepare For Everything

Well, there is both good and bad in what we have to suggest.  There is no one single right answer.  All answers, all predictions, and prognostications are correct, to some degree.  And all are likely to occur, in some random sequence of events, to some people, some of the time.

We must plan for all possible scenarios.  We can not restrict our planning to what we consider to be the most sensible, the most likely types of encounters.  We know everyone is different with different preferences.  That is why there are dozens of different types of baked beans to choose from in the stores.  We know everyone has different opinions – that is why horse races can occur with a spread of betting over the widely different horses.  We know some people do incredibly stupid and unpredictable things.  But if we haven’t planned for that incredibly stupid or unpredictable thing, maybe we end up being the stupid person, and a victim of the unpredicted thing.

This is the key takeaway point of this article.  Don’t just plan for one type of scenario when it comes to people and their actions.  Plan for them all, from the mildest to the wildest.

Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that when you’ve identified the most likely type of events, that these will be the only events you encounter.  Even if you can think exactly like some type of malefactor (we won’t ask how that is!) you can’t think of other types of malefactors.  But they are all out there, and we need to plan for the unexpected as well as the expected.

Scenarios for Encounters

Maybe some people will just lose the will to live and quietly die in back alleys.  Maybe other people will beg and plead for food, then go away, nonviolently, if refused.

Notching up a level, maybe some others will attempt to take food by force, but will give up when confronted by superior force, without any shots being fired.  Maybe some of these people, if able to take food without needing to kill to do so, would proceed to take food, but would turn away if required to kill first.

Notching up another level, maybe some people will indeed trade shots, but if they don’t quickly triumph, they will then give up and go away, looking for easier pickings/takings elsewhere.

And getting closer to an extreme, maybe some people will fight to the death, having made it a point of honor to win the encounter, or die in the attempt, no matter what.

Different Tactics

Maybe some people will simply and noisily storm the front door in the mid-day sun.

Maybe others will sneakily plot and plan to surprise you when your door is open.  Maybe they’ll lie in wait for you in your fields.

Maybe some will kidnap one member of your party and try to bargain their safe return in exchange for food.  Maybe others will simply kill anyone they encounter (and, yes, maybe even eat them too!).  Note – if you don’t consider the possibility of cannibalism in your defensive strategies, you are not thinking far enough outside the box.  A yucky thought, for sure, but civilized rules will be in abeyance in an extreme scenario.

Maybe some will impatiently mount a battle, but if they don’t quickly triumph, and if they start taking casualties, go away defeated, never to return.

Maybe others, if unsuccessful in a first attack, will instead redouble their determination and come back, perhaps in greater force, and mount a more prepared planned and sustained assault.

Some people will approach from the obvious quarter.  Others will approach from unexpected places.

Varying Group Size

Maybe you’ll encounter some people on their own.  Maybe you’ll encounter small bands of 4 – 6.  Maybe you’ll encounter larger groups of 10 – 20.

Maybe you’ll think you’re defending yourself against a group of four attacking you from the front, when all of a sudden, ten more people appear from behind.

A Range of Skill Levels

Most people will have a gun – maybe a ‘good’ gun and maybe a ‘bad’ gun (you can decide what the terms ‘good’ and ‘bad’ mean in this context!).  Some will be good shots.  Some will be sniper level shots.  Others, as often as not, will be poor shots.

Some will have no knowledge of tactics or how to behave under fire.  Others will be veterans who have fought in one of our country’s many recent overseas wars and will be skilled at such things, some gangs deliberately have some members serve in the military so they have military level training and skills within their group.

Some opponents will quickly learn combat skills, and others will run away the first time a bullet zings angrily overhead.

All Sorts of Equipment and Weapons

The most common weapon you’ll encounter will be some type of rifle.  Some optimistic types might try to assault your retreat with only a pistol, and a few might bring a shotgun to the party.

But who is not to say that some people won’t have a fearsome .50 cal BMG rifle that will punch holes in just about anything it hits?  Maybe someone has developed his own explosive charges, and maybe someone else has developed a cannon or mortar?  And don’t forget the person with the Molotov cocktail, either.  Fire can be one of your most fearsome challenges.

Maybe someone from SCA has created an old-fashioned catapult, or a battering ram, or something else like that?

Maybe someone has liberated a tank or APC or other military vehicle/weapon from the local armory and can safely assault your retreat from behind the vehicle’s armor, and knock down your front door with their vehicle.

The frequency of Encounter and Group Coordination

Maybe you’ll go six months and not see anyone.  Maybe you’ll end up with a dozen encounters within as many days.

Maybe you’ll have outsmarted the entire world with your choice of ‘out of the way’ location.  Maybe one or two backwoodsman type hunters will stumble across your retreat while you’re complacently reveling in the success of your secret.

Or maybe other people will have thought the same way as you and will be specifically going to JWR’s American Redoubt areas and looking for preppers and all their food and supplies, using the same factors to guess where you might be as you used to decide where to go.

Maybe roving gangs will meet and share stories and swap details of potential targets.  The gang you fought off last week might encourage another gang to return next week.

Maybe self-appointed ‘warlords’ will claim control of a district and everyone in it.  Maybe – really worrying – he’ll have some degree of pseudo-legal status or actual legal status and is levying ‘taxes’ on all residents in the area.  With 100 of his troops acting as tax collectors.

The preceding sub-sections have been intended not to list all the possibilities, but to open your thinking to the range of possibilities that may occur.  Don’t stop thinking – this is not a complete list!  You should be able to come up with plenty more.

Summary

It is easy to anticipate the basic issues and challenges we’ll face in a major Level 2 or 3 event.  Take away all external support.  No more electricity or gas or the internet.  No more 7-11 or supermarket.  No more Home Depot or Office Depot or any other type of depot.  That’s okay.  We can anticipate and plan and prepare for these things.

But the hardest thing to anticipate?  The actions of our non-prepped fellow citizens.  Think of as many scenarios and nightmares as you can, then drink a fifth of bourbon, and think of some more.  Any – or all – of these might come to pass (well, maybe not that one with the mutant alien zombies that you came up with halfway through your second fifth, right before you fell asleep!).

Because we can’t predict exactly which of these encounters we will face, we should plan and prepare for all of them.

We can harden our retreats to make them resistant to all but the most serious of attacks, we can design our lots to make them easy to defend and hard to attack, and – most of all – we can either join an existing community right from the get-go, or if not, we can group together with our neighbors to create a new form of law and order and mutual support and early warning system.

Thank you for visiting and stay prepared.

Also, I highly recommend this book to everyone. 300 pages, color, paperback. The Lost Book of Remedies is helping Americans achieve medical self-sufficiency even in the darkest times using the time-tested methods of our grandparents without spending lots of money on toxic drugs and without side effects. A great asset when doctors and hospitals won’t be available anymore. You may not be Claude Davis, but you can make use of his procedures and techniques to increase your chances of survival!
