The Percentage Of Working Age Men That Do Not Have A Job Is Similar To The Great Depression

Why are so many men in their prime working years unemployed?  The Obama administration would have us believe that unemployment is low in this country, but that is not true at all.  In fact, one author quoted by NPR says that “it’s kind of worse than it was in the depression in 1940″.  Most Americans […]

Prepping for economic collapse. If there’s any one thing that most rational people can agree on today, It’s that all of the economic numbers we are seeing today point to economic collapse.  Poor nations are less prosperous now than they have been in the last three decades. Hunger is a problem in more countries than ever before, […]

5 proven steps to prepare for economic crisis. In my last post, I made the case for an economic crisis here in America, and pretty much the rest of the world.  At the end of that post, I mentioned some good news, mixed in with all of the horrible economic numbers. One good thing is the global […]

Second American Revolution.

There Will Be No Second American Revolution:

  “A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty.”—James Madison America is a ticking time bomb. Second American Revolution. All that remains to be seen is who—or what—will set fire to the fuse. We are poised at what seems to be the pinnacle of a manufactured breakdown, […]


Emergency Water Purification, The final word.

    Emergency water purification should be high on your list of emergency preparations. The day’s of bending down and getting a refreshing drink from a stream, or any natural water source are pretty much history. Even the water that comes from our taps has been treated with enough chemicals to pickle a moose, and taste like […]

Ten must do Summer Preps!

Carceral State

‘We the Prisoners’: The Demise of the Fourth Amendment

In a carceral state, there are only two kinds of people: the prisoners and the prison guards. With every new law enacted by federal and state legislatures, every new ruling handed down by government courts, and every new military weapon, invasive tactic and egregious protocol employed by government agents, “we the people”—the prisoners of the […]

Summer prepare

A summer to prepare

In forty years of trying to stay prepared for the unexpected, I have a dark feeling that this summer is A summer to prepare!

Prepping to Resist

Prepping is a powerful form of resistance! This has been one of my major motivations for getting and remaining prepared for emergency’s. As I have written in the past, Prepping is just good old fashion self sufficient living, and it takes a certain amount of power out of the hands of Government, and corporations, that […]

Modern preppers.

Modern Preppers should look more to the past.

Modern Preppers look more to the past as a guide to preparedness. What modern preppers call prepping or emergency preparedness, our not so distant ancestors called everyday life. Less than a Hundred years ago(Three generations) in this country the majority of people produced more of their food than they bought. Family vegetable gardens, and fruit trees were […]

Bugging out, Now What? Bugging out is a term often used in todays conversation concerning the future.

Shadow preppers x ,Survival Knives

The number one survival knife on planet earth.

And the winner for number one survival knife is! The answer is simple and probably anticlimactic to the question, but the truth is the absolute best “survival knife” that a prepper( or anybody for that matter)can have is…..The knife that you have in your pocket, BOB, tackle box, vehicle, etc when it hits the fan and you need […]
