How to Survive Riots and Civil Unrest

0

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

As the world seems to be on fire in countries across the planet, the threat of civil unrest and riots certainly feels like it’s increasing. People are responding with rage to perceived injustices, and whether that rage is warranted or not isn’t the point of this article.

Often when I write about surviving events like mass shootings or riots, people scoff and say, “That was a false flag perpetrated by government operatives” or “Those people got paid by [insert evil billionaire here.]” The simple fact you must understand is that it doesn’t matter who started it, who paid for it, who instigated it, or who is taking part in it. If you find your city or town under siege by irate protesters, none of those things matter at the moment. These are things to be sorted out later.

Microchips Are the “Brains” of Every Electronic Device in the World and They’re Becoming Scarce

by J.G. Martinez, The Organic Prepper:

Generally speaking, computers were created to make our lives better. I love them, indeed. I can’t imagine a day without sitting in front of my monitor to write or watch a couple of videos before going to bed. I’ve written a few articles about how technology can indeed provide us quite strong support in some of our activities.

For example, computers help with surveillance, automation of things such as gate openings, lights, and even windows. You know, all that SmartHome new-age stuff that you may or may not find helpful. Many people use computers to make a side income. In my case, these days, it is the primary income, indeed. In some homes, computers are used for communications and record-keeping, among other things. 

The Five “C’s” of Prepping

0

by Mr. B., Survival Blog:

It strikes me that as a prepper, whatever your level of commitment and however you become involved in prepping, that we all go through various feelings and stages. I have pondered recently – in light of unnecessary lockdowns, “mandatory” face masks, and threats of imposing questionable vaccines – that one might interpret that there are five stages of “being”. These are my Five C’s. Let me explain:

CHALLENGED

The first is being challenged. This is the starting point when you are challenged by a moment or thought, an action or a reaction, to an event that takes you out of your comfort zone into a situation you were not prepared for.

Post-Collapse Barter: The Value of Silver – Part 2

by Dr. Derek King, Survival Blog:

(Continued from Part 1. This concludes the article.)

So let us postulate (while we still have time, sanity, and electricity) what that sack of coins might be worth as time crawls on.

The topic of bartering safely, back-room banking, armed protection and hiding places are beyond the scope of this paper and will be saved for another time and venue.

Let’s just speculate as to what a 1960 quarter and a plain 1-ounce 99.9% silver “round” will be worth on a chronological time-line, shall we?! Remember that silver is measured in Troy ounces (12 to a pound) and that this specific quarter is 90% silver instead of 98% copper as today. (According to Coinflation.com, there are 0.4584 pounds of copper and 0.0417 pounds of nickel in $10 face value of the current clad quarters.) By the way, a Troy pound is 373.2 grams.

Planned Global Food Crisis of 2021 Begins! Stock Up and Be Prepared For Water & Food Shortages

from Silver Doctors:

The health crisis was a walk in the park compared to what’s coming…

by Financial Argument via Financial Argument

The global food crisis of 2021 has begun. After I tell you about the latest news and signs regarding serious water, food shortage, and even seed shortages in this video, if you are not already prepared, you should begin immediately.

Take 2021 very seriously while there is still time. Many countries, especially China, which knows the great disaster that the food crisis will cause, are preparing accordingly.

WILL THERE BE FOOD ON THE TABLE?

by Julian Rose, The Waking Times:

“Who Controls the Food Supply Controls the People”

This is to serve warning that what ‘the authorities’ are planning for us in the very near future is a ‘Great Reset’ of what we are accustomed to eating at our daily meals.

Under plans laid out by Klaus Schwab, executive director of the World Economic Forum, what food ‘is’ and how it is produced are to take a dramatic turn for the worse. From something broadly natural to something essentially synthetic.

How To Fight Price Inflation At Home

by Samantha Biggers, Peak Prosperity:

Helpful ways to save money while boosting quality of life

Inflation is a big topic right now.

The $trillions in fresh worldwide stimulus are causing the price of nearly everything we depend on to rise sharply in price, as this chart from February shows:

(Note how both Bitcoin and Ethereum have increased a further ~50% since this chart was made just a month ago.)

Adam has had a number of excellent interviews recently with highly experienced economists, analysts and investors — like Ed Butowsky, Grant Williams, Jim Rogers, Jim Bianco, Luke Gromen, Steen Jakobsen and others — who are extremely concerned of the secular era of rising inflation they see us headed into. And these interviews contain a lot of valuable guidance about how to position your portfolio accordingly.

Ice Age Farmer Interview – Impending (Planned) Food Infrastructure Collapse, To “Build Back Better”

by The Last American Vagabond, Activist Post:

Joining Ryan today is Christian Westbrook, also known as Ice Age Farmer.

Today we are discussing a very serious problem that not only appears to be on the horizon for Americans, and much of the world, but one that very well might have been planned, orchestrated, or at the very, least allowed to happen.

This is the topic of collapsing food infrastructure, and how that can be used to further subjugate an already desperate and vulnerable population.

Lessons Learned from the Texas Deep Freeze, by B.B.

0

by B.B., Survival Blog:

Texans had two weeks warning about the artic cold set to hit the state last month. Yet most Texans were not prepared. It is estimated that 80 people died from the cold and lack of power. Some froze to death from lack of heat while others died from carbon monoxide poisoning trying to stay warm in foolish ways. It started Sunday night with rolling blackouts in my area, but complete power outages in some areas. For my family, rolling blackouts continued through Wednesday night, ending in the early hours of Thursday morning. During this time, many lost water service, either due to freezing pipes in their homes or broken water mains in their communities.

Volume Vegetable Gardening – Part 1

by J.T., Survival Blog:

This article describes the steps required to raise a variety of 14 vegetable plants from seed starting to a successful harvest. I’ve been at this for 50 years and feel like I am getting closer to getting it done right.

I raise vegetables and fruit, manly to sell from a roadside stand. Yearly, I grow about 4,200 pounds of vegetables and 1,500 pounds of apples, plums, and pears. Our family uses only 30% of this yield, so that leaves a lot to sell.

The following are what I believe are the most important preparation and focus points for a successful garden:

Four Steps to Prepare for an Economic Downturn

by Doug Casey, Casey Research:

Rachel’s note: While everyone is distracted by COVID-19… the failure to roll out the vaccine… and more… The global elites at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have just put a sinister plan into motion…

It’s called the “Great Reset.” And Casey Report chief analyst Nick Giambruno just broke the story on how your wealth… savings… and hard-earned retirement money could lose an astonishing 31% of its value as we switch to a new “global currency.”

Texas Residents Are Being Billed Up To $16,000 For ONE DAY of Electricity and Power Companies Are Going Under

by Robert Wheeler, The Organic Prepper:

The Texas power grid is failing and failing fast. I’m not just talking about failing under extreme weather conditions but under the market and governmental regulatory requirements.

In the wake of freezing weather that swept across the Lone Star state, millions of Texans found themselves without power for days on end. That power outage then saw bursting pipes lead to a water crisis never before seen in the state’s modern history.
