global-crisis

By Mac Slavo – SHTFplan.com

It can be difficult to understand the repercussions that would follow a collapse of the global economy, stocks and debt markets. While we know a serious financial event is coming, determining how it will impact our lives and preparing an appropriate strategic plan to mitigate the fallout can be a confusing and stressful undertaking.

The questions being asked by concerned Americans are plenty, but the answers are not so easy to come by. Should I keep money in my retirement accounts? What publicly traded companies are recession-proof? Will gold and silver really be of value if the whole system comes crashing down? Should I have some cash? How much food should I stockpile if the regular flow of commerce is affected? Will there be riots in my city?

In the following interview with X22 Report Spotlight, well known analyst and contrarian thinker Greg Mannarino of Traders Choice succinctly explains the challenges we face as individuals and as a nation. He doesn’t mince words and goes straight to the heart of the problem: out of control debt.

As Mannarino explains it, we are facing an event so serious that it will directly impact just about every person on earth. But before we can prepare for it, we need to understand what it is that’s going to happen and what a worst-case scenario may look like:

The central banks… by us adopting a debt-based economic model, which demands that cash be borrowed from the future in greater and greater amounts to sustain what we have here, have created an alternative universe which would not exist. If we did not have access to all of these funds that we’re borrowing from the future and inflating this debt we would not have the lifestyle that we have now.

It’s created a population boom… a population boom has risen in tandem with the debt. It’s incredible.

So, when the debt bubble bursts we’re going to get a correction in population. It’s a mathematical certainty.

Millions upon millions of people are going to die on a world-wide scale when the debt bubble bursts. And I’m saying when not if…

When resources become more and more scarce we’re going to see countries at war with each other. People will be scrambling… in a worst case scenario… doing everything that they can to survive… to provide for their family and for themselves.

There’s no way out of it.

They understand where this is going… Let’s put this into perspective… The world’s central banks, by going negative [interest rates] they’ve turned the entire financial system upside down. That’s how desperate they’ve become. They’re charging people to put cash into these institutions…

It can’t work. It’s not how it’s designed to work.

So, that should tell us all how close we must be to this moment.

As Mannarino notes, it should be obvious that we are on the very cusp of an implosion of the debt-based system upon which our entire societal structures are built. When that system falls, so too will life as we have come to know it.

Hoping Mannarino is wrong, but assuming he’s right with his assessment, we are looking at an event that may well lead to a bursting of the population bubble, something the late Michael Ruppert warned about a half-decade ago:

There are only two great bubbles on this planet left to go. The Chinese bubble and the human population bubble. And after the Chinese bubble goes the human population bubble goes.

Last week we highlighted a report suggesting that by 2025 the population of the United States could be reduced by up to 78% as a result of a global crisis such as what Mannarino describes.

The expansion of commerce, food, energy, housing, and just about everything else we’ve seen over the last fifty years has been the result of credit, and thus debt, expansion. Once credit markets seize up and no more debt can be thrown onto the backs of a populace who is broke and unable to repay their existing loans, the system seizes up.

To get a small-scale view of what an event like that may look like we need only look to Greece in recent years. When credit markets froze and their government, local businesses and population could no longer get loans and commerce essentially came to a standstill. Not only were jobs hard to come by, but access to medicine disappeared, people were fighting for food,  and the power to the entire country was almost shot off.

In Greece we saw what happens to a thriving nation once the money stops flowing. It wasn’t pretty. Luckily, because it was just one country within the European Union, the-powers-that-be were able oversee the collapse much like a controlled demolition of a building.

But what happens when the same effect goes global, as Mannarino says it likely will?

Who will come to the rescue?

In the immediate aftermath, the simple answer is “no one.” The average person will be left to fend for themselves.

Assuming the worst case scenario comes to pass and the multi-trillion dollar global debt markets collapse, the immediate aftermath will indeed be met with panic. That will quickly turn to anger as people realize that no help is coming. Subsequently, as  Mannarino recently noted, the world will become Baltimore.

So how do we prepare for such an outcome?

  • First and foremost start acquiring essential resources now – that means food and medicine.
  • Have a way to source clean water and energy, because in the middle of a crisis utility infrastructure workers will, just like you, stay home to protect their families.
  • And on that note, have a way to defend yourself. When everywhere becomes Baltimore, emergency response from law enforcement will be virtually non-existent.

In her book The Prepper’s Blueprint, Tess Pennington outlines a long-term strategic preparedness plan designed to cover multiple layers of preparedness, from immediate emergencies lasting two to eight weeks, to longer-term sustainability for an extended crisis of one year or more.

Failure to plan accordingly will mean that you and your family will be directly exposed to the rioting, looting and violence as the system comes unhinged.

When a massive, unplanned disaster occurs, societal breakdowns, gang driven crime and chaos are all a part of what happens when a society is turned upside down. It is actually the people and not the disaster that create societal breakdowns. Unfortunately, some who participate in the breakdown of society feel their desperation is a justified reason and opportunity to steal. While some participate out of desperation to get what they need for their family.

However, the running theme in these scenarios is that  desperation has no boundaries. This is the human condition and a harsh reality. When a person is in a desperate situation, they will stop at nothing to get what they need to survive.  This is the entire point of preparing for disasters.

A person cannot rely solely on their country to rescue them. There has to be some sort of self sufficiency if a person wants a better chance at survival.

Hoping for the best will only get you so far. Planning for the worst may save your life.

  State Preparedness Map

By Joshua KrauseReady Nutrition  

Among preppers, there is an endless debate as to what parts of the country would be safest to live in should the SHTF. You have to factor in statistics like population density, politics, poverty levels, natural resources, and how prone the area is to natural disasters. No state is perfect, but you can reasonably determine that certain places would be significantly safer than others.

However, most survivalists don’t factor in the preparedness level of their state government. By their nature, they’ve long abandoned the notion that you can trust the authorities to save your butt when society falls apart.

This certainly isn’t without just cause, but I think government preparedness deserves a second look. After all, if the government is at least somewhat prepared to take care of the population during a disaster, than preppers in that state will have less to worry about from other survivors.

Recently foodstorage.com, a survival food vendor, created a map that determines how safe and prepared each state is. It goes over the most common natural disasters, and their likelihood of occurring in each state. They then established how much money each state spends on preparedness per capita, and gave a score between 0 and 10 for both categories.

State Preparedness Map

If you take a look at the website, you’ll find that they coupled those two numbers and created a list that ranks each state in order from the most, to the least resilient. Some of the results aren’t too surprising. As many preppers have known for a long time, places with very high population densities tend to be poorly prepared.

California, Texas, and New York, the states with the highest populations, are all ranked within the bottom five. The only population dense state that spent a lot of money on preparedness was Illinois. These three states have the highest likelihood of being struck by a disaster, and yet they spend the least amount of money on safety and preparedness, with Texas scoring the worst overall.

Though in all fairness to Texas, almost all of the southern conservative states scored poorly. I suspect this may be due to the fact that their populations tend to be more self reliant and prepared in general, so their state governments don’t feel the need to spend as much on preparedness.

In the Northeast, it appears to be quite random, with some states spending a lot, and some like New York spending very little. What surprised me was Vermont, which alongside North Dakota ended up spending the most money per capita on disaster preparedness. I can only guess as to why this may be. These statistics also answered a question that many preppers have been debating for years. Which state is the least prone to natural disasters?

Wyoming apparently. They also spend quite a bit on disaster preparedness, just behind Vermont and North Dakota, making them the most resilient state in America. However one fact still remains. No matter how well prepared your state is, it is always prudent to stock up on your own supplies, should disaster strike. No amount of tax dollars can guarantee your safety when the SHTF.

21-things-for-pandemic-survival

By Ken Jorgustin – Modern Survival Blog

A pandemic may incapacitate (and/or terminate) a significant portion of the population, crippling the infrastructure due to lack of manpower and possibly leaving you without utilities and other services for the duration (months or longer).

If a deadly virus were to infect the population and spread easily from person to person, a pandemic (worldwide outbreak of disease) could begin. No one can predict when a pandemic might occur.

Are you ready to self-impose a quarantine for 30, 60, 90, 120 days?

Diseases can be spread by a variety of creatures, and after a disaster lack of proper hygiene and chemical repellents will exacerbate the situation. Let’s look at the 5 most deadly disease spreaders so that you’ll be prepared to handle them.

#1: The Mosquito

This little guy is a misery even setting aside diseases, but the effect of a mosquito bite can be far worse than a mere itchy redness. Mosquitos are one of the most prolific and difficult to repel vectors for disease, and depending on the area they live in have spread malaria, West Nile virus, Yellow Fever, and Dengue Fever. What’s worse, since they often attack in swarms it can be very difficult to keep them from infecting anyone who is outside for even a few minutes if you live near large pools of stagnant water. Aside from repelling sprays, your best bet is to wear long-sleeved clothing and long pants, perhaps with a hood and insect-proof face shield if they’re really persistent. If you sleep outside, a mosquito net may be needed to ensure that you aren’t eaten alive while you sleep. Sweet dreams!

#2: Mice and Rats

These critters will explode in population during most disasters as their habitat will suddenly expand along with their food supply. Unfortunately, they are also particularly deadly to preppers whose food isn’t locked up in rodent-proof containers. All of those foods on shelves or in bins may be contaminated by mouse nibbles on the corners or by droppings in the food ruining the entire bag or box. This means that only a few rats or mice can ruin hundreds of pounds of rice, stocks of baking powder/soda, and leave you with hantavirus-covered feces as a parting gift. We’ve discussed dealing with these pests in detail here.

#3: Cockroaches

Although these insects are needed in order to clean up refuse, their diet and preferred living quarters make them common vectors for many diseases, fungi and even allergens. What’s worse, they can be nigh impossible to eradicate if there is a source of food nearby, such as an abandoned house or simply piles of corpses/garbage lying about. As such, you should make every effort to secure your own food against them (thankfully they cannot chew through like mice and rats so an airtight container should do the trick) and then seal up every hole you can in an effort to stem the tide. Killing them, aside from the use of bug bombs or other large-scale massacre devices, is largely pointless since they reproduce horribly rapidly. For those with chickens in their backyard, you can use them as an effective cleanup crew, as their voracious appetites will rapidly diminish local populations.

#4: Ticks

Depending on the ticks in your local area, you may be subject to Rocky Mountain Spotted fever, STRI, Powassan disease, or the infamous Lyme disease among others. These blood suckers attach to dogs, people, and are found just about anywhere there is vegetation. Chickens are a great population reducer once more, but beyond that you just need to carefully check your body and clothing after walking or working outdoors in order to catch them before they bite. Be aware especially of ticks on dogs and other pets, as ticks can use dogs as places to lay eggs and hatch young that can then brush off on you and your family. I would recommend keeping some anti-tick cream on hand for potential disasters if you have pets as a result.

#5: Fleas

Although not commonly found on humans in our modern world, they may become more prolific in the unhygienic world of a long-term disaster. Spreaders of many blood-borne diseases including the infamous bubonic plague, fleas often jump to people from animals including rats, cats, and pigs. Ensuring a proper anti-flea regimen in pets and livestock will help keep the local population down, and eliminating feral animals and mice after an event will keep the number of non-protected carriers to a minimum.

Your thoughts?

These are some nasty little buggers after a disaster when you’re busy dealing with bigger and more pressing problems. Do you have any tips for eliminating them or minimizing the spread of disease? Let us know in the comments below!

societal-collapse

By Mac Slavo

The end of the world as we know it is coming.

You’ve likely heard this before, especially from the growing number of voices in the alternative news and preparedness communities. Often dismissed as conspiracy theory or outright lunacy, there is a growing body of evidence that suggests these fringe thinkers may well be on to something.

Despite assurances from most political leaders, experts and researchers who argue that we live in a stable and sustainable world, a new study utilizing mathematical models developed by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center may confirm our worst fears.

According to the Socio Economic Synthesis Center, which led the study’s research team and was made up of well respected natural and social scientists from various U.S.-based universities, society as it exists today is decades, perhaps just years, from a complete collapse of our way of life.

Given economic strati cation, collapse is very difficult to avoid and requires major policy changes, including major reductions in inequality and population growth rates. Even in the absence of economic strati cation, collapse can still occur if depletion per capita is too high. However, collapse can be avoided and population can reach equilibrium if the per capita rate of depletion of nature is reduced to a sustainable level, and if resources are distributed in a reasonably equitable fashion. (SESC via Steve Quayle)

The study cites scores of historical examples of civilization collapse dating back thousands of years. Given the facts it is clear that humanity’s long sought after Utopian society is a goal that is simply unachievable. Every five hundred years or so, the whole system simply falls apart.

There are widespread concerns that current trends in population and resource-use are unsustainable, but the possibilities of an overshoot and collapse remain unclear and controversial.

How real is the possibility of a societal collapse?

Can complex, advanced civilizations really collapse? 

It is common to portray human history as a relentless and inevitable trend toward greater levels of social complexity, political organization, and economic specialization, with the development of more complex and capable technologies supporting ever-growing population, all sustained by the mobilization of ever-increasing quantities of material, energy, and information. Yet this is not inevitable.

In fact, cases where this seemingly near-universal, long-term trend has been severely disrupted by a precipitous collapse often lasting centuries have been quite common.

This brings up the question of whether modern civilization is similarly susceptible. It may seem reasonable to believe that modern civilization, armed with its greater technological capacity, scientific knowledge, and energy resources, will be able to survive and endure whatever crises historical societies succumbed to.

But the brief overview of collapses demonstrates not only the ubiquity of the phenomenon, but also the extent to which advanced, complex, and powerful societies are susceptible to collapse.

In short, the mathematical models utilized to determine the results of the study indicate that there are two key causes for what the authors call an “irreversible” collapse.

First, with the earth’s population now over 7 billion people our civilization is burning through resources faster than they can be replenished, and the burden of paid “non-workers” (i.e. those who are given resources for performing no actual function in society) leads to a complete break down in the system.

We can see how an irreversible Type-N (full) collapse of Population, Nature, and Wealth can occur due to over-depletion of natural resources as a result of high depletion per capita.

Workers and Non-Workers with the same level of consumption, i.e., with no economic strati cation. The Non-Workers in these scenarios could represent a range of societal roles from students, retirees, and disabled people, to intellectuals, managers, and other non-productive sectors. In this case, the Workers have to deplete enough of Nature to support both the Non-Workers and themselves.

Second, and this may come as no surprise, “elite” members of society are accumulating whatever available resources there are in an effort to maintain control over the “commoners.”

The Elite population starts growing significantly… hence depleting the Wealth and causing the system to collapse.

Under this scenario, the system collapses due to worker scarcity even though natural resources are still abundant, but because the depletion rate is optimal, it takes more than 400 years after the Wealth reaches a maximum for the society to collapse.

In this example, Commoners die out first and Elites disappear later. This scenario shows that in a society that is otherwise sustainable, the highly unequal consumption of elites will still cause a collapse. This scenario is an example of a Type-L collapse in which both Population and Wealth collapse but Nature recovers.

The Elites eventually consume too much, resulting in a famine among Commoners that eventually causes the collapse of society. It is important to note that this Type-L collapse is due to an inequality-induced famine that causes a loss of workers, rather than a collapse of Nature. Despite appearing initially to be the same as the sustainable optimal solution obtained in the absence of Elites, economic strati cation changes the fi nal result: Elites’ consumption keeps growing until the society collapses. The Mayan collapse in which population never recovered even though nature did recover is an example of a Type-L collapse

There are several other scenarios outlined in the study, but the above two are seemingly the ones that may be responsible for the coming collapse of our own civilization.

In America, nearly 50% of the population produces nothing, yet receives payment in the form of money, goods and services. This takes resources out of the hands of those who actually produce these resources.

Furthermore, it should be obvious that elite members of society simply take what they want through force, whether by taxation or criminal activity (as defined by natural law), putting even more strain on the system.

Over time, the debt builds and pulls forward wealth from generations ahead, resources are depleted, and costs begin to reach levels that are simply unsustainable for everyone, including the elites who attempt to amass as much as they can.

In the end, we all suffer the same fate.

According to this and other studies, like one recently published by the UK Government Office of Science and entitled A Perfect Storm of Global Events, we are very quickly approaching the breaking point. Over the next fifteen years, it is predicted that the strain could become so burdensome on society that the system will crack and eventually break down.

The result will be famine, war, and what some refer to as a “die off.” This will affect all segments of society.

Naturally, there will be those who survive, and it will likely be the people who are able to develop their own sustainable environments on a personal, familial or communal level. These people may have taken steps to not only prepare for long-term crises, but to develop sustainable practices that will allow them to produce their own food and energy.

The mathematics being cited here have been seen time and again in other studies, and they don’t bode well for human civilization as we know it today.

With seven billion people on the planet, a massively unproductive non-workforce, and the greed of the elite, it is only a matter of time before something breaks and there is a real possibility that our civilization will not be able to survive it.

The scary version? According to these studies, the consequences will be felt within most of our lifetimes.

geoengineering in california

By Paul Adams JD

Since November of 2013, the beginning of the rainfall season, California residents have experienced heavy geoengineering and chemtrail activity almost every day, which has transformed the Golden State, normally an agricultural miracle, into an arid dust bowl.

The sun is out daily, temperatures are well above normal, yet the sky is grey, the horizon is silver, and you often cannot see mountains that are only a few miles away (grey-out). The local weather forecasters say that the forecast is sunny “hazy” or with “high clouds”, which is their (NASA/NOAA)
way of saying chemtrails.

Our occult rulers are now openly demonstrating their god-like power over nature. If history is any guide, this manufactured drought will likely be used to create artificial scarcity of water and food. Like oil, diamonds, and utilities, this artificial scarcity will result in increased profits for select corporations and increased government/corporate control over the populace. As Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, and Henry Kissinger knew, populations desperate for food do not often oppose the crimes of their government or hidden power structure behind it.

Humanity and the natural world are under geoengineering attack and our very survival may be at stake.

Geoengineering and Chemtrails Manufacture Drought

Climatologists report that the 2013-2014 rainfall season is well on its way to becoming California’s driest period in more than 400 years. In 2013, California received an average of just over 4 inches of rain. Downtown Los Angeles, which receives nearly 15 inches of rain during a normal year, only got 3.6 inches in 2013. It’s currently California’s driest period since it was granted statehood in 1850.

It is no coincidence that the extreme drought coincides with unprecedented geoengineering and chemtrail activity. In Engineered Drought Catastrophe, Target California, Dane Wigington of Geoengineering Watch says, “intentionally caused drought is weather warfare.” California’ drought works like this:

With the combination of constant aerosol spraying and ionosphere heater utilization (HAARP) the climate engineers have effectively cut off the flow of moisture to the state of California. Why? First, California is possibly a climate “sacrifice zone”. This means that California is collateral damage for the constant parade of engineered snow storms being whipped up further east in the US. The rain blocking high pressure ridge that the climate engineers have locked in place over the western US and the eastern Pacific pushes the jet stream straight north, carrying the moisture with it before rain can come anywhere near California. This moisture then travels as far as Alaska and the Arctic. The jet is then turned back south as it wraps clockwise around the HAARP/ionosphere heater created dome of high pressure. Then, it is pumped all the way down to the southern US carrying heavily sprayed and chemically ice nucleated moisture with it which enhances the artificial cool down of the eastern US.

Dane also notes that during a drought, a population that has no water and cannot grow food does not tend to be in a position to effectively protest the crimes of its government. California has historically contributed to much of the nation’s food supply so that this catastrophic drought has very far reaching ramifications. Control the food supply and you control the population. There is also the growing effort by the government to take control of water rights in California and other regions in the west.

Importantly, In 2011, Rothschild LLC, a private investment company led by Chairman Sir Evelyn de Rothschild and CEO Lynn Forester de Rothschild (the infamous Rothschilds – puppet masters), acquired a 70% interest in Weather Central, LP, the world’s leading provider of interactive weather graphics and data services for television, web, and mobile.

Why would the Rothschilds be interested in owning the largest and most recognized weather modeling organization? Because when you are involved in climate decimating geoengineering programs, you must also control the “forecast” models to cover your tracks.

Defense contractor “Raytheon” does all the “forecast” modeling for the National Weather Service and NOAA. Lockheed Martin does the modeling for the FAA. Since both of these private defense contractors are up to their necks in weather modification patents and programs, the “forecasts” are more or less the “scheduled” weather. Now, with the Rothschild’s acquisition of the dominant private modeling organization, the control of weather “modeling” seems complete. This control of “forecasts” and “graphics” provides for the constant visual conditioning that makes the population more likely to accept the constant spraying and manipulation of our weather as “normal”. When the nightly weather “forecast animation” matches what the public sees in the sky, right down to the upper level “haze” or “overcast” from the constant spraying, all seems to correlate, so nothing more is questioned.

Food as a Weapon 

History clearly demonstrates that the occult power structure uses food as a weapon against target populations to solidify power and impose absolute tyrannical control. Food can be withheld from the masses by preventing it from being grown and harvested, which includes manufactured droughts, by contaminating it and rendering it unfit for human consumption or by simply preventing food from being distributed to a targeted population.

Josef Stalin engaged in his own Soviet-style Holocaust when, in 1932 and 1933, and estimated six to 20 million people in the Ukraine died from starvation in order to eliminate the Ukrainians’ desire for becoming their own nation-state.

Upon assuming power, the Stalinist Communist regime rapidly nationalized the food industry and forced all of the region’s farms into collectives. Thus, Stalin’s version of the Holocaust came to fruition in what history has dubbed, the “Holodomor,” in which millions perished in only a two-year period when the Soviet government began to exterminate the Ukrainian population by taking control of food and food production.

Likewise, Hitler used food to discipline the masses by issuing food rationing cards to reward accomplishment and punish failure as well as to forment preferential class distinctions. Hitler’s armed forces received the largest food ration cards. Skilled workers who were engaged in industries critical to the building of the German war machine, received food ration cards which were slightly less in value. Finally, the prisoners received the lowest valued Nazi food ration cards.
Food ration cards were also utilized as incentives to increase industrial production and were increased in value when productive Nazi workers would be promoted. Food ration cards were diminished in value for the failure to meet Nazi production goals. Hitler’s use of what psychologists refer to as classical conditioning techniques reduced the will of the German population to a pack of Pavlovian dogs who were conditioned to be totally dependent upon the government for their survival.

It is important to realize that Hitler and the rise of communism were totally dependent on U.S.bankers, politicians, and industry. Those with a true knowledge of history easily dismiss U.S. exceptionalism.

The use of food as a weapon by the U.S. government has been a matter of official U.S. governmental covert policy since 1974.

In December, 1974, National Security Council directed by Henry Kissinger completed a classified study entitled, National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests. The study was based upon the false claims that population growth in Lesser Developed Countries (LDC) constituted a serious risk to America’s national security.

In November 1975 President Ford, based upon the tenets of NSSM 200, outlined a classified plan to forcibly reduce population growth in LDC countries through birth control, war and famine. Ford’s new national security adviser, Brent Scowcroft, in conjunction with CIA Director, George H. W. Bush, were tasked with implementing the plan and the secretaries of state, treasury, defense, and agriculture assisted in the implementation of these insane genocidal plans.

NSSM 200 formally raised the question, “Would food be considered an instrument of national power? … Is the U.S. prepared to accept food rationing to help people who can’t/won’t control their population growth?” Kissinger has answered these questions when he stated that he was predicting a series of contrived famines, created by mandatory programs and this would make exclusive reliance on birth control programs unnecessary.

With Kissinger and his disciples at the Council on Foreign Relations still having a great influence on U.S. policy, rising food prices due the manufactured drought may only be the beginning of woes.

Water Privatization Schemes

While the occult rulers have been known to use food as a weapon, they are also prepared to use the manufactured drought as a water privatization scheme, that is, making billions in profits by charging exorbitant prices for water that would be falling naturally for free absent geoengineering. The World Bank and powerful corporations like Veolia want in on the action.

In the important Great Lakes episode of Jesse Ventura’s investigative television show, billionaire corporate raider/wall street asset stripper T. Boone Pickens brags that he has purchased most of the reservoir land surrounding major cities in Texas and that if the plebeians don’t pay him for water, “you won’t have any water” (at 13:15). Pickens will also work with crony politicians to utilize eminent domain to obtain any land that is necessary to deliver “his” water to cities in Texas.

 

The Bush family, well known for financing Hitler, the 9/11 false flag, and Highway of Death, bought 300,000 acres on South America’s and World’s Largest Aquifer, Acuifero Guaraní, which runs beneath Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay. If not monopolizing the water supply, what business do the Bush’s have in Paraguay?

If manufacturing a drought for the purposes of gaining profits and control out over a population sounds like something out of a James Bond movie, it is. In Quantum of Solace, the antagonist corners Bolivia’s fresh water source. This allows him to gain tremendous control over the government and citizens. Perhaps this move was predictive programing for the public/culture creation for the water wars to come thanks to geoengineering.

The globalists consider fresh water blue gold, and geoengineering with chemtrails is being used to make this Malthusian nightmare of artificial scarcity a reality.

GMO Drought Resistant Seeds for Big Profits

In December of 2011, the USDA approved Monsanto’s 87460 genetically modified, drought resistant corn. Perhaps the geoengineered drought is being used to create a market for Monsanto’s genetically modified products, the dangers of which are well documented.

Interestingly, Google co-founder Sergey Brin bankrolled the production of the world’s first lab-grown hamburger. The Internet entrepreneur has backed the project to the tune of €250,000 (£215,000), allowing scientists to grow enough meat in the lab to create a burger – as a proof of concept – that was be cooked and eaten in London last year.

Though calculations of the environmental impact of the lab-grown meat have yet to be published, early indications suggest that cultured meat could reduce the need for land and water by as much as 90% and overall energy use by up to 70%.

Is Sergey aware that the California drought is being geoengineered?

Taking Geoengineering/Chemtrails Mainstream

Because so much geoengineering and chemtrail information is available on the Internet, the globalists are now moving from covert to overt operations. The plan is to continue geoengineering extreme weather and then use “climate change” as a justification to pass tyrannical legislation like carbon taxes. Create the problem, get the desired public reaction, then impose the solution prepared by the globalists from the beginning.

Carbon tax huckster Al Gore and mad scientist David Keith have recently appeared on television shows to advocate geoengineering to combat “climate change” and “global warming”. During the interviews, they have no problem lying through their teeth by implying that massive geoengineering operations are not yet operational when in fact they have been going on since at least the 1990s. David Keith does admit that spraying particulate matter into the atmosphere could kill people but ambiguously claims that it could also prevent climate change deaths.

Al Gore continues to give talks on the danger of climate change without discussing the dangers of geoengineering climate change. Recently he warned that “the Dust Bowl is coming back, quickly, unless we act.” In fact, the dust bowl has returned because “they” acted by geongineering the drought.

David Keith has also been given a platform in the CIA-friendly Washington Post. One of his articles is entitled, “One problem with geoengineering: Once you start, you can’t really stop.”  Therefore, the globalists are suffering from delusions of grandeur and plan to play god indefinitely.

Conclusion

It is imperative that we inform others that California’s drought has been geoengineered to create artificial scarcity of food and water, the essentials of life. This will result in greater corporate/government control over the population and increased profits for certain select corporations. It could even result in massive democide.

There is NO NATURAL WEATHER at this point. We are all the victims of “weather warfare” and are being poisoned by the toxic metal fallout.

In the last article we looked at how to decide whether or not to relocate. In this next part, we’re going to see what you would need to know if you decided to look for a place to relocate to.

Understanding what you actually want

First and foremost, you need to take your wants and needs into account. There is absolutely no point in picking out the finest survival retreat in the mountains if you will thrive in a city, or a small town, or a suburb and vice versa. Since I can’t possibly know what you want or need out of a survival retreat, instead let’s look at a list of positives and negatives surrounding some common location choices.

The Isolated Rural Retreat

Probably the most common ideal for preppers, this probably includes a few acres of land (5 at a minimum) and relatively few neighbors. You will be able to raise animals, grow crops and orchards, and generally operate independently without many prying eyes.

Advantages:

  • You can make your preparations more obvious in many ways without inciting comment. I have seen people in a rural setting break out the tractor and mound hills of earth to level out ground and build their own gun ranges with huge backstops without their neighbors even noticing. Since your home isn’t snugly next to others, you often have the luxury of doing what you feel is best on a practical level rather than needing to worry about what the neighbors might think.
  • Laws tend to be more lax, as is zoning. Many suburbs allow you to have small livestock (excepting loud animals like roosters) but you might find it difficult to sneak a dairy cow into your back yard. There is also a strong tendency to have lesser restrictions on owning and using firearms owing to the presence of vermin like raccoons and coyotes that savage valuable livestock.
  • The lifestyle tends to force a more sustainable mindset even in non-preppers. Since I live in an area that isn’t exactly a priority for the electrical company during statewide outages, many people around me have generators on standby to keep the heat/AC running during harsh weather. The freedom and open land available also encourages people to grow gardens, raise a few chickens, and generally have fun using the land they own even if its not really setup for long term use. People also view weapons as a necessary part of the household, particularly during bad winters or droughts when local carnivores can become desperate.
  • Away from immediate population centers full of needy people. Let’s face it, a community of under 5,000 people is probably much more able to sustain life than a community of several million. Depending on exactly where your retreat is, you may also be out of the way for natural migration patterns along interstates and highways which would isolate you further if things should go really bad.

Disadvantages:

  • Less help overall during any kind of emergency. Living in a low-population area puts you on the bottom of aid lists, charity focuses, and generally any kind of outside help if a major city or town is also hit. You also have fewer people nearby who will know if anyone is in trouble, which may leave you isolated for days in the event of a flood, earthquake, or tornado destroying buildings.
  • Dangerous locals. Although you do occasionally run across the moron who can’t figure out how to shoot at a proper backstop, the real danger can often come from drug dealers and addicts out in the sticks. Although cities are often vilified as the organizational centers for these types of thugs, they have branches in many rural areas to make their products and to hide it owing to the lesser chance of being spotted by the local sheriffs. Some people come to rural areas thinking to escape most major crimes, but that attitude can be dangerous since it causes them to let down their guard.
  • Doing more for yourself invites its own dangers. If a tree falls and blocks your driveway, you either pay lots of money or get out and chainsaw it yourself. If you get 6 feet of snow on your mile-long driveway it’s your job to get on a plow and clear it. If you raise animals it’s your job to manage potentially dangerous situations properly, such as an angry bull or excitable 400 pound hogs. All this presents dangers that could maim you even with prompt medical care, and it requires a sense of awareness in order to avoid serious harm.
  • There is a general lack of close community support. There are definitely exceptions, but in many cases you don’t have that forced interaction of just seeing your neighbors whenever they’re outside and so you don’t speak all that often. This means that the community as a whole is more separated than they might be in other circumstances, which may leave you alone in an emergency.
  • People may gravitate towards the rural areas in a disaster. People aren’t stupid, and they know that the concrete jungle of the city can’t grow enough food to support a massive population. Many people will fan out looking for food in the isolated rural areas as time goes on, though only your location will dictate how long it may take or how many will arrive at your doorstep.

Small Towns and Suburbs

Advantages

  • Middling Population that is more spread out. Although your home may be right next to someone else’s, at least you don’t have hundreds of people stacked into apartment buildings. You balance out the isolation of the rural retreat and the extreme population density of the city. This can be helpful in building community since people are common and close enough that you are forced to interact, but far enough apart that you aren’t just one of thousands.
  • High on the list for aid and help from organizations. Lots of people and especially lots of customers in all those individual homes generally guarantees electrical services and other needed products will be faster in arriving than they would be for rural folk. You may even have a sufficient tax base for your local government to have emergency plans and supplies in place, though I would recommend checking that out before moving!
  • Less immediate crime pre-disaster, and a barrier after one begins. Suburbs definitely attract the criminal element and small towns are often organizational points for rural growers/producers, but you still have some separation from the truly nasty gang-controlled areas generally speaking. During a disaster, you may also have some time to flee if needed or to prepare last-minute defenses if you’re staying since the city folk will need time to flee before arriving at your town.
  • Less chance of building collapse or factory implosion causing damage during a disaster. Although some towns have taller grain silos or factories within their limits, many try to keep them at least a few miles away to reduce air pollution and noise complaints. Unlike the city where a skyscraper or apartment collapse could devastate whole areas, you will likely only have to contend with standard house sized buildings which cause less overall damage.

Disadvantages:

  • More tricky regulation compared to the rural areas. Towns and suburbs walk that middle ground between an almost total lack of animals and personal gardens in the city with the near total freedom in a rural area. As I mentioned before, many towns and suburbs are quite happy to let you have chickens or other smaller animals…so long as they aren’t too smelly for your neighbor. Or too loud. You may also be allowed to own a weapon, but not to actually discharge it except in the defense of life. It can be hard to know what you really are and aren’t permitted to do sometimes, which can be more paralyzing than an outright denial.
  • The neighbors. It all depends on who you get, but depending on the neighbors your prepping may be a great thing, of no concern, or the worst thing ever to happen. Some neighbors will be delighted to see you caring for a few cute little chickens and happy to have a fresh egg or two, while others will be chucking the book at you in an effort to cleanse their neighborhood of dirty animals. If you can find a community that seems more independent and live-and-let-live about these sorts of things this may be a nonexistent issue, but if not you may pull your hair out in frustration.
  • No forts and walls. A guy living rural could probably setup some dirt berms and dig some trenches without getting comments, but in a neighborhood people will begin to wonder what on earth you are doing. It will limit your defensive options somewhat since you have to keep up the aesthetics of the property as well as the practical stuff.
  • A target for mobs and rioting. Concentrations of individual homes all neatly stacked together are great for looting, since each house tends to have a full set of the usual TVs, computers, jewelry, cash. antiques etc. Sadly, the higher population in the area can also contribute to the size and scope of riots as well since some of the locals may get into the act too.
  • A general lack of preparedness in the population. Towns and suburbs aren’t known for their preparedness bent, and for good reason. The restrictions on the amount of available land, what you can own and plant, and the prompt disaster relief can leave many just waiting for help when any disaster arrives.

The City

City

Obviously cities range in size, but at least consider a city large enough to support skyscrapers, major business headquarters, etc.

Advantages

  • Vitally important, and probably benefits from Federal protection. Rarely are anything short of absolutely titanic disasters allowed to effect cities for longer than they need to. Cities are simply too valuable to leave burned out or destroyed, so any major efforts at restoration, funding, or aid will be concentrated there. If there’s anywhere where the Federal government will concentrate its military, political, and economic power it will be in a city.
  • A vast population, with smaller communities within that are tightly knit. The large population often fosters areas to take on a peculiar identity with a much smaller community dominating that area. Ethnic, religious, and political divides are common, but within them you will find a good deal of support. It is hard to say if it would hold if the city itself became unlivable, but the possibility is there.
  • Opportunities to learn varied skills. With so many people, you could learn welding, electrical and plumbing and find uses for it both now and after a disaster. The sheer number of people presents opportunities to the right kind of person who can take advantage of it.

Disadvantages:

  • Crime and strong gang presence. The drug cartels have a very strong presence in many cities, and they’ve been taking over many of the more localized gangs by coercion or by just killing them all outright. Unfortunately scum like this already live a life that is suited to the looting mindset and they have a loose and generally effective organizational system already in place. In the aftermath of a serious disaster they may elect to claim new territory, and with it all the people to serve as their cash cows.
  • Massive unsustainable population during extended disasters. The millions of people inside the city simply cannot be supported without constant outside input, and as a disaster drags on that support will dry up. Once it does, you will have millions of starving people fighting like rats in a cage for every scrap they can find before they flee. Assuming a disaster of that scale occurs, you would be in serious trouble.
  • Racial divides. Sadly those divides remain alive and well in many cities, and they are convenient sparks for riots even in our comfortable modern life. During disasters they can bring about small-scale warfare against hated groups.
  • Distrust from others outside of the city. Even if you were smart enough to get out of dodge before things went completely bonkers, many people outside the cities aren’t going to look at you in a friendly manner. The cities, as seats of wealth, government power, and a massive source of hungry people will not have a lot of favor with people you may meet. Being from a city will mark you as an outsider in many cases, which is not generally a good thing.

It can be hard to decide exactly where to relocate to, but I hope this has been helpful in making your decision!
