Preparedness critics are history’s cannon fodder

Preparedness critics are history’s cannon fodder

by Brandon Smith The world is entering a kind of no man’s land, in between the realms of insane denial and utterly obvious crisis. Europe is now destabilizing amid the Greek soap opera (an event that I predicted in January would occur in 2015); China’s stock market bubble is bursting; and the U.S. dollar’s world […]

A low tech way to beat high tech thermal vision-based systems

A low tech way to beat high tech thermal vision-based systems

by Bob Livingston The American government views American citizens as the enemy. What else explains the massive surveillance, liberty-crushing laws, spying drones and aircraft and the arming of all Federal agencies – even the Department of Education, Department of Agriculture and the EPA – with weapons of war including automatic weapons?

Purifying water after a disaster

If I started prepping all over again

by Thomas Miller I thought it might be interesting to take an introspective look at how my preparedness efforts have been and, if I were to start over again, what I would do the same and what I might do differently. It is interesting to look back and see some of the decisions that I […]
