    This is specifically the #1 precursor, for all the reasons previously mentioned. Do not be alarmed; be prudent. What are you seeing in your area? Feel free to note in the comments section what is happening in your area. Hopefully, most of us are much better positioned than the average person who has not been following this as closely over the past several months. Initial food instability signs in the supply chain. Things to look for: (1) A shortage of processed potatoes (frozen specifically). 1.a And/Or a shortage of the ancillary products that are derivatives of, or normally include, potatoes....
  • Shipping Blues! Cass Freight Index Expenditures Rose 43.6% In 2021 While Baltic Dry Index Has Crashed Since October 2021 (Omicron Strikes!)

    Ever wonder why prices are rising so fast? One reason is that with rapidly rising energy prices under the Biden Administration, the costs are getting passed-through to consumers in the form of higher prices. According to the Cass Corp Freight Index, the total spent in December on shipping goods to their customers in the US spiked by 43.6% from December 2020 to December 2021. Not surprising since energy prices over the past year have soared by almost 50%. But at the same time, the Baltic Dry index (The Baltic Dry Index (BDI) is a shipping and trade index created by...

  • Lessons From An Underground Economy (Venezuela Prepper Advice))

    Zubu Brothers ^ | 12-27-2021 | J.G.Martinez via The Organic Prepper blog,
    How is it possible to survive a nation with inflation rates of 20%/month and 1700%/year? The answer? The underground economy. This is the level of hyperinflation we have found ourselves with here in Venezuela, and considering the spread of inflation worldwide, it would be well worth the prepper’s time to glean what we can learn here. Virtually everything you read dictates inflation on this scale necessitates civil war. Yet Venezuela hasn’t seen this. Why not? Why are the streets not being taken by armed civilians? While the main reason revolves around 20 years of disarmament and anti-self-defense teachings, I would...

    History has shown us that collectivism detests the individual. The man who can exist independent of the system, who thinks for himself, who is not easily swayed, and who has values rooted in absolute truth which he refuses to give up – this is the enemy of collectivism. But if we take a closer look at one aspect of the individual – his ability to exist independent of the system – is it not clear this is an end goal of prepping? Is that not what a prepper strives for – the ability to exist independent of the world around...
  • What Is the Next Step in the Evolution of Left-Wing Authoritarianism?

    12/19/2021 4:11:21 AM PST · by Kaslin · 25 replies ^ | December 19, 2021 | Nicholas Waddy
    Conservatives have watched, with varying degrees of horror, as leftists have, in recent years, embraced radical ideas and schemes such as: court-packing, abolishing the filibuster, lockdowns/mandates, censorship on an industrial scale, cancel culture, critical race theory, abolishing the police, open borders, runaway spending, the stigmatization of dissent as “insurrection”, “white supremacy”, “fascism”, and more. Left-wingers have talked openly, and sometimes gleefully, about how richly we, their conservative enemies, deserve slow and painful deaths – and, when in a feisty mood, how they would quite like to be the agents of our demise.Much of the time, we on the right are...
  • Grocer: ‘Out of 145 orders, only 41 were delivered’ – Thanksgiving shortages and prices spikes ‘should’ awaken Americans that trusted the MSM lies

    With weather issues, supply chain breakdowns, pandemic unemployment worsened by overreaching vax mandates as first responders are put on unpaid leave, forcing firehouses to close, mass exodus of police, gas prices, food price spikes, all of which are contributing to shortages seen from grocery stores to retail shops, we are looking at a disastrous holiday season, which includes Thanksgiving and Christmas. Cities can burn for all these people care, as first responders are once again protecting Americans by standing up for all of our rights, which unfortunately has caused them to walk away until liberal leaders understand, the first responders...

    I discovered this series titled “What the Progressive Socialist Liberals Have in Store for Conservatives” only yesterday, and I read all six parts in a row non-stop. This is a masters-degree-level course on the history and lessons of government-sponsored genocide. I can’t recommend it highly enough. Some of the many embedded images are gut-wrenching, but this lecture series does not hold back any punches. The hosting website permits you to save these lectures as PDF files, and I recommend that you do so. The powers-that-be in the coming years will not want people to be armed with this knowledge.

    Biden's ATF obtained more than 54 million gun owner records in 2021 alone The Biden administration in just the past year alone stockpiled the records of more than 54 million U.S. gun owners and is poised to drastically alter gun regulations to ensure that information on Americans who own firearms ultimately ends up in the federal government's hands, according to internal Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. The ATF in fiscal year 2021 processed 54.7 million out-of-business records, according to an internal ATF document obtained by the Gun Owners of America, a firearms advocacy...

    While Biden administration dismisses the issue.. While the Biden administration has attempted to dismiss inflation and food supply issues, China is now urging its citizens to prepare for the winter by stockpiling food. “A statement from China’s government urging local authorities to ensure there was adequate food supply during the winter and encouraging people to stock up on some essentials prompted concerned talk online, with people linking it with the widening coronavirus outbreak, a forecast cold snap, or even rising tensions with Taiwan,” reports Bloomberg. “The Ministry of Commerce urged local authorities to stabilize prices and ensure supplies of daily...

    ow that we’ve done our cheery “Happy New Year” greetings, it’s time to get more serious. I’m a boomer. In my lifetime, I can’t remember a new year beginning with such dire warnings and grim outlook. This morning, the UK’s The Telegraph reports that Americans bought record numbers of guns last month amid an apparent surge in popularity for weapons as Christmas presents. Another UK paper, Daily Mail, is grimmer still. Dominic Sandbrook writes that a “loss of faith in politicians and democracy could make 2012 the most frightening year in living memory.” Sandbrook goes as far as to compare...

    Is it any surprise governments are working to turn their citizens against each other, scare them into submission, and trick them into imprisoning themselves? Let's talk big picture here. Why has the world been turned on its head these last few years? Why does it seem as if everything true is labeled false and everything false is labeled true? Why is it that, even in the absence of all-out global war, everything feels chaotic and uncertain these days? Why is it that at the height of global prosperity and peace, the world is going mad? What if I were to...

For opposing the Anointed Intellects of the Left, for rejecting their anticipated utopia, we must be expunged… from our jobs, from our communities, even from our own families.

MOST are single men, not families, or children seeking asylum. We aren't even mentioning the same male situation with the unvetted Afghan refugees squatting all over this country.

    The price of pretty much everything is rising precipitously. The CPI for September came in above expectations with a month-on-month increase of 0.4%. Peter Schiff appeared on Unfiltered with Dan Bongino to talk about inflation in Joe Biden’s America. Peter said you should stock up now because things could get ugly really quickly. Bongino pointed out that while wages are rising, they aren’t rising as fast as prices. Wages have risen 4.6% while inflation has surged by 5.4% — according to government numbers. Peter said that is typically the trend. The price of labor never keeps up with the price...

    Rising consumer price inflation is not going away. This, of course, is counter to the “transitory” argument made by Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell earlier this year. Powell’s cohort, Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic, recently admitted inflation is not transitory. This admission comes with assurances the Fed will properly manage it. We have some reservations. The effects of rising consumer prices range far and wide. For one, the pinch rising prices put on consumers is extraordinarily disruptive. It acts like a hefty tax…eroding family budgets that are already stretched. In this ongoing stagflation, personal income gains lag far behind rising...

    The global supply chain is in complete tatters. Tens of thousands of items and services are in short supply or can’t be found at all. This is leading to higher prices, a/k/a cost-push inflation, and a general decrease in the purchasing power of all fiat currencies, be it the US Dollar, the Japanese Yen or the Euro. The choice of items to include here could fill volumes. We picked things that often appear very obscure, such as ketchup or pallets and yet are staples of modern life.

    “In Target, fruit snacks were limited, protein bars were nearly gone too, and Lunchables were low in stock,” the outlet said. “We saw the least amount of available frozen foods at Publix and snack foods like beef jerky were running low.” “Both stores had limits on pet foods,” WJXT added. CEO of the Michigan Pork Producers Association Mary Kelpinski told the Detroit Free Press the supply chain crisis is hurting suppliers’ ability to keep food on the shelves. “Nationally, our numbers are down,” Kelpinski said. “Demand is very good. Everyone wants bacon, but we have fewer pigs.” The challenge of...

    Snip: No quarter shall be given. It didn’t take long to find hundreds of videos where these Trumpers and so-called patriots were hanging black American flags. You can see a mashup to your right, there are hundreds of more videos like this, but I just wanted you to get the gist of it. Black American flags are the flags that mean “no quarter shall be given.” They are the opposite of the white flag of surrender. According to the people on Tik Tok and the Sun (British tabloid), the black American flag originated in the civil war and was flown...

    When it comes to how we see and prepare for SHTF, thinking in terms of real and probable rather than fictional and possible can make a big difference. Even though SHTF has many forms and levels and is in essence complex, random, diverse and unsystematic, some patterns and principles are common to the way things unfold when it hits the fan. With Toby and Selco’s Seven Pillars of Urban Preparedness as inspiration, I came up with a different list of the 15 dynamics and realities of collapses. 1 SHTF is nuanced and happens in stagesThinking about SHTF as an ON/OFF,...
