Today, millions of Americans say that they believe that the United States is on the verge of a major economic collapse and will soon be entering another Great Depression. But only a small percentage of those same people are prepared for that to happen. The sad truth is that the vast majority of Americans would last little more than a month on what they have stored up in their homes. Most of us are so used to running out to the supermarket or to Wal-Mart for whatever we need that we never even stop to consider what would happen if suddenly we were not able to do that.

Just like this.
If insulating yourself from a worst-case scenario is your primary concern then the following considerations, some of which were mentioned in the article above, could help you to better decide what to do next: Continue reading
What is the best place to live in the United States? I get asked that question all the time. My answer can be summed up in two words: it depends. The truth is that the answer is going to be different for each person. All of us have different goals and different needs. If you have a very strong network of family and friends where you live right now, you might want to think twice before moving hundreds or thousands of miles away. Continue reading
I have often been asked to comment on Jim Rawles’ concept of the Redoubt for survival relocation. Rawles’ criteria of distance from population threats, defendability, and agricultural suitability focus upon a fairly limited area of the Western US, centered around Idaho, and includes Western Montana and parts of Eastern Washington and Oregon. In reality, it’s a fine area and certainly matches my core recommendations in Strategic Relocation for security, safety and livability, but it may be too limiting for most people. Continue reading
CNN and liberal professor push for outright gun ban and mass confiscation “once and for all”
By Alex Thomas
In yet another example of the real liberal gun control agenda, a recently published CNN op-ed has called for “getting rid of guns in this country, once and for all,” by making it a felony to posses any handgun or “assault” rifle. Continue reading
A collapse is coming… but not as quickly as many are expecting.There are many people high up in the power structure who not only see an end to the dollar coming soon, but an economic collapse that could trigger the death of tens of millions of Americans – rendered vulnerable by the lack of services and the stopping of checks, and harmed by the resulting looting, starvation and violence that is likely to occur. Continue reading
What would you do if the power grid went down and never came back up? One of these days, and it could be a lot sooner than most people think, we will all wake up in a country without electricity. And considering how utterly dependent we have become on technology, that is a very frightening scenario to consider. How would Americans react if nothing worked? Continue reading
It isn’t always the person with the greatest physical strength that is better at handling an emergency and more likely to survive. Being able to think clearly is your most valuable asset in a survival situation. That goes for any survival situation, whether that is the aftermath of a natural disaster, or being confronted by a gang of street thugs –keeping your head is the key. Continue reading
The Tianjin explosion was waged as an act of war by the United States in response to China’s currency war with the subsequent Yuan devaluation, according to dissident sources from mainland China. Speculation has heavily centered around the fact the weapon used to attack China was a space-based weapon. Continue reading
It is easy to interpret the signals of our economy from afar when we see people driving cars everywhere and we tend to think that our economy is not that bad. Continue reading
As we begin the Fall season, we know that winter is right around the corner. The advent of the cold temperatures and inhospitable weather pose a whole different set of challenges that hold sway for you and your families when outdoors. As the saying governs, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” and there is nothing that can be much more true than this saying used in reference to preparations for the winter months. It is my hope that this articles and the ones that follow on the subject will give information to lay in supplies for the cold, nasty months that will help you perform first aid outdoors more effectively.

Most preppers spend a lot of time learning new skills to help them survive the perils of the wild. Many of us probably know a dozen different ways to purify water, or how to build rudimentary shelters out of forest debris, and set traps for small game etc. That’s all fine and good, but in terms of life threatening scenarios, there’s only one thing that’s more dangerous than the wilderness, and that’s other people.

This article was written by Dave Hodges and originally published at his Common Sense Show website.Editor’s Comment: The whole system is built on fraud, it is threatening to topple at any moment, and there is no telling exactly when that moment will be. All the king’s horses and all the king’s men could continue to prop it up for years, but sooner or later, it will crumble, then collapse, and take down nearly everyone with it. Continue reading
