Despite what our government’s actions would have you believe, the war in Ukraine is just a distracting sideshow, and of no real significance to America.

But there is another war going on, that may change our country forever. It began the day the last American military plane flew out of Kabul two years ago, leaving thousands of Americans behind enemy lines.

Strange as it may sound, this has nothing to do with the Taliban or the war on terror.

It is far more deadly but also almost completely hidden from the American public. And while the mass media does not report on it, this new global conflict poses the biggest threat to the US economy and the American way of life as we’ve known it for decades.

By my calculations, this crisis will reach its climax in late 2023, and if we are not on the winning side by then, America will simply stop being a world superpower.

Inflation will turn to hyperinflation and very soon years’ worth of savings will barely cover your next few meals and bills. “Too big to fail” companies and banks will go bankrupt, with millions of “secure jobs” vanishing overnight.

If you lose yours don’t hope you’ll find another one soon. If you are retired don’t think your pension will help you survive what’s coming. Homes will be foreclosed and flood the market causing a real estate crash worse than anything we saw back in 2008.

And the homeless and hungry will replace the well-off and prosperous. America will descend into a debt spiral, but unlike today, nobody will want to lend us any money. Our way of life will collapse, and the country might never recover.

I don’t make this prediction lightly. It is based on years of extensive research and recent economic facts, which I will lay out in the following paragraphs.

You can decide for yourself if I’m wrong, or if this is indeed the worst crisis we will likely face in our lifetime. And if you do reach my same conclusions, I’ll tell you how to take advantage of the small window of time we’re still afforded to prepare.

This presentation PROOVES WITHOUT DOUBT that America is in for a major fight that will put you and your family in the firing line, literally… So make sure you watch this presentation while it’s still online…

While this crisis entered its critical and final phase two years ago, its seeds were planted much earlier than that, just as World War II was ending.

Death Of The Dollar

In 1944 much of Europe and Asia, as well as parts of Africa, lay in ruins.

The cost of the war had been very high both in lives lost and industrial production capacity destroyed.

What was needed was money and lots of it.

But not the war-torn currencies of European countries plagued by hyperinflation. And there wasn’t enough solid gold to go around for the kind of massive rebuilding that had to be undertaken.

What was needed was a new kind of global money, that everyone could trust.

So, in July of 1944, over 700 delegates representing 44 countries met in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire to decide on a new world reserve currency pegged to gold, which would become the yardstick for all other currencies and the bedrock of international trade.

As America was the largest holder of gold, and practically the only economic superpower left at the time that currency could only be the dollar.

It was agreed at Bretton Woods that 1 ounce of gold would always be worth $35. You could go to the New York Fed and exchange your dollars for gold directly.

Any currency is only as strong as the demand for it, and this agreement created an enormous demand for dollars all around the world. Every central bank wanted them to keep in reserve to strengthen their own currency, minimize exchange risks, conduct foreign trade, and pay off debt.

Death Of The Dollar

The dollar was now just as good as gold only a lot more practical to use.

Following Bretton Woods, a lot of countries also sent their national gold reserves to Fort Knox, to be kept in custody and help enforce the new standard, receiving dollars to keep in their vaults back home instead.

By 1947, the United States had accumulated over 70% of the world’s existing gold reserves.

With the dollar in extremely high demand, the American economy, which was already strong after the war, started to really take off during the 1950s. And the United States became the lender of choice for many countries that wanted to buy dollar-denominated U.S. bonds.

The world ran on dollars.

America enjoyed what the French president De Gaulle called “an exorbitant privilege”. We were the only country in the world that could print debt without a ceiling. And we could pay all that debt with the money we made out of thin air, and nobody would be able to refuse it.

But with great power comes even greater responsibility – and our leaders proved anything but responsible.

They printed too much and ran the debt tab too high fighting in Korea and Vietnam, giving billions in foreign aid, and splurging on projects back home.

The rest of the world started to wonder if the US dollar was still covered one to one in gold reserves.

By 1971 the French had lost faith that this was the case and sent the French navy across the ocean to exchange dollars back into gold. The FED complied but the damage was done.

The great gold bank run had begun.

Realizing he would not be able to redeem all the dollars for gold, President Nixon shocked the world as he abandoned the gold standard that same year.

The dollar was now backed by thin air, faith, and trust in the US Government. Unsurprisingly, its value quickly started to plummet.

As an immediate result, there was high inflation in the early 1970s, putting the US economy in serious danger.

We had to figure out a way to stabilize the dollar and solidify it as the world’s reserve currency. This was not easy, because a currency backed by nothing is not very attractive.

And things would have turned ugly for the US, had Henry Kissinger not been dispatched to the Middle East to negotiate a deal that would force the dollar on everyone else.

In 1974—The United States and Saudi Arabia signed a wide‐ranging military and economic agreement that both countries declared “heralded an era of increasingly close cooperation.”

Effectively the US promised to keep the Saudi Kingdom safe from its neighbors, as long as the Saudis agreed to price and trade their oil in US dollars. This led many other important oil-producing OPEC countries to standardize their oil prices in US dollars – and so, the petrodollar system was born.

From that moment on any country that wanted to purchase oil would need to hold and use dollars.

Soon after the Saudi deal, the entire world was trading oil in dollars, even the Soviet Union!

The dollar might not have been backed by gold anymore, but it was now pegged to something just as precious – energy. This created a huge demand for US dollars around the world and the greenback was rescued as the world reserve currency.

Again, any currency is only as strong as the demand for it.

Since then, there have been a few threats to the Petro-dollar system most notably by Iraq and Libya that the US has dealt with accordingly.

America is the middleman for the most lucrative trade in the world and much of our prosperity depends on keeping it that way. With a high demand for dollars, we can keep our inflation under control, because all other countries subsidize our growing money supply when they buy oil. Effectively we are exporting our inflation to them. It has truly worked like a charm so far.

The US issued debt like crazy, and despite that, we have had super cheap debt, because everyone out there wants those precious dollars.

This has gone on for 50 years now. 50 years of fiscal deficits, continuous military interventions, artificially cheap debt, and manufactured dollar demand.

But the music must stop at some point.

And now, a much bigger threat to US hegemony is in play, and this one won’t be easily contained, if at all.

If you’ve been watching the news, it’s probably no secret that China and Russia have recently pledged a friendship “without limits”. Weeks after that Russia invaded Ukraine, but their friendship is not about that war. They’re aiming much…much higher.

Death Of The Dollar

As you may also know, both countries are part of something called the BRICS, which is an increasingly cohesive geopolitical bloc that also contains India, Brazil, and South Africa. Their governments meet annually at formal summits and coordinate multilateral policies.

The BRICS already accounts for 25% of the world’s GDP, so they matter. And that GDP figure is expected to increase to 50% by 2030, even if they don’t take on new members.

Death Of The Dollar

Expanding BRICS will immediately accelerate the process, and expanding they are.

In the wake of the latest BRICS summit held in June 2022, Algeria, Argentina, and Iran have applied to join the organization, and in the following month, we learned that Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey also expressed interest in becoming members.

Now when a country says it expresses interest in something like this, it’s usually a done deal.

All those countries can prove important new members of the BRICS, but one will prove key – Saudi Arabia.

The Saudi Kingdom has been vital in creating and maintaining the petro-dollar system ever since the 1970s.

They were and officially still are our allies in the middle east.

But this ally is about to be a turncoat, and it will spell disaster for the dollar.

Make no mistake: the dollar is the biggest economic bubble there’s ever been. When it implodes, it will be terrible beyond words for the US. The dollar supply would far and away exceed demand. And all that inflation we’ve been exporting for decades will come back with a vengeance.

Everything – everywhere is connected to the dollar.

The way it starts is with the US losing control of the oil markets.

Death Of The Dollar

Just as America was retreating from Afghanistan, the Saudis signed a new military agreement that did not involve the US. This deal was made with Russia on the 24th of august 2021.

Saudi Arabia has grown tired of what they perceive as US disengagement from the Middle East.

They have repeatedly accused us of failing to hold up our end of the security bargain.

In 2019 rebel attacks temporarily cut their crude output in half. And America did nothing about it. But it was the way in which we left Afghanistan that probably pushed them over the edge.

They did not trust us after that and went on to find someone else to protect them.

Death Of The Dollar

China has also been heavily courting the Saudi Kingdom, investing more than in any other Arab country, and giving them everything they want from weapons to technology. When President Xi visited the country last year, he was received with the greatest fanfare, unlike President Biden whose pleas for higher oil production fell on deaf ears.

As the biggest importer of Saudi oil, China has already gotten them to sell part of their oil in yuan instead of dollars. Nigeria, another OPEC country is doing the same with more to follow.

And this is just the beginning. If things were not bad enough, something else happened which I’m sure you have heard about but may underestimate the full consequence of – the war in Ukraine.

Now, this should not matter for the dollar’s reserve status. Only it does, because of something the US decided to do.

When America and its allies froze over $300 billion dollars of the Russian central bank’s foreign reserve, it was seen as an unprecedented move.

It is also a very dangerous move.

Russia is not Iran or North Korea.

It is a major world power. And if you change the rules for Russia, no country is safe.

The rest of the world quickly took notice.

Other BRICS members and their central banks started to wonder if perhaps they’re not next on the U.S. economic hit list, and it will be their dollar reserves that get confiscated or frozen.

Faith that the dollar was a safe asset began to erode at an accelerated pace.

And instead of it, central banks are now diversifying their reserves into gold and other currencies, and some are cutting their existing dollar stockpiles drastically.

In this short VIDEO, I will unearth A lost super-food will bulletproof you against any food shortage or famine. It’s a food that vanished with the Incas over 6 centuries ago

In the next crisis these lost skills will be more valuable than gold, food supplies and survival equipment combined. These skills have been tested and proven to work for centuries.

Just take a look at how their purchases of gold have accelerated recently. And most of the gold is being bought by BRICS members like Russia and China, or candidate countries such as Turkey.

Death Of The Dollar

In 2022, gold has been leaving metal exchanges at the fastest rate in recorded history. This was an absolutely massive accumulation of gold by central banks.

And it’s not random at all.

That brings us to today and the biggest piece of news that was not reported by the mainstream media.

Russia and China have just announced the creation of a new BRICS currency that will be backed by all that gold they’ve been buying in a frenzy as well as other commodities like oil, gas, and other precious metals.

Death of the dollar

These countries and their ever-increasing number of allies are returning to hard money based on tangible assets. Foreign minister Lavrov of Russia confirmed just the other day that this new BRICS currency will be discussed (and probably adopted shortly after) at the BRICS summit that will take place in august 2023. (Source)

Right now, the US still has the petro-dollar to rely on, but when Saudi Arabia turns, that will quickly collapse. Once it happens, you’ll have a currency backed by nothing and held by the country with the largest foreign debt in the world, versus a new currency backed by gold and a basket of commodities.

So, let’s put all of this together and see how things might play out.

One day later this year, you’ll turn on your TV and you’ll see the crown prince of the Saudi Kingdom, Mohammed bin Salman, flanked by Putin, Xi Jinping, and the other BRICS presidents, welcoming Saudi Arabia into the fold.

He’ll make a nice speech saying thank you to the US, it’s been a great ride and we appreciate it but as you know we’re now being protected by China and Russia. In fact, we struck that deal the day you pulled out of Afghanistan because we realized that maybe you’re not the best ones to provide us with security.

So, we’ve now decided to open up our energy exports in yuan, rubles, euros, BRICS currency, and yes also dollars. The other OPEC countries, heavily indebted to China and reliant, on their investments will follow along shortly.

And just like that, it’s over for America.

It begins with the dollar. Every country that has had to own dollars since the 1970s to purchase oil begins to dump them. This is a downward spiral because as the dollar’s value collapses, it forces more people and more countries to convert their dollars to other currencies, gold, or commodities to preserve value.

Most US Dollars are NOT in the USOnce all those dollars being dumped hit the US shores this “historic inflation” we’re dealing with right now will seem like a walk in the park. America will experience true hyperinflation.

Death Of The Dollar

We’re talking multiple percentage points per day, not per year. Your money will soon become worthless, and a bag of cash will be traded for a piece of bread.So, what else happens because of this hyperinflation? The FED will spike interest rates through the roof! There is no other way, you need to have high-interest rates to compensate for that kind of rabid inflation.

Death Of The Dollar

When that happens stocks, bonds, and real estate, the other 3 pillars of American wealth all collapse at the same time.

The economic crisis that follows will be unlike anything this country has ever experienced in its entire history. It will probably make The Great Depression look like a time of plenty!

There will be no safe haven asset anymore or anyone to bail us out.

As the dollar is globally dumped your way of life as you know it will cease to exist.

And tens of millions of Americans will be thrown over the poverty line and into a bitter fight for survival.

Our irresponsible leaders have led us down a one-way road from which there is no turning back at this point.

As the curtain falls on the dollar, American primacy will also become a thing of the past. The world will move to a multipolar dangerous new order, where the main reserve currency will be the BRICS currency.

It will be China and its allies calling the shots from now on, not the US.

No more printing money to pay off debt for us. No more demand for dollars. No more overvaluation of the US economy.

Total Collapse

For decades and decades, we’ve lived on cheap debt and borrowed time, way above our means and productivity levels only because of the dollar’s reserve status.

And now it’s time to pay the piper, but we can’t cover the tab.

China knows what’s going to happen and that’s probably why they’ve been on an absolute fire sale of US treasury bonds recently, shedding their exposure from $1.3 trillion to just $870 billion in the last few months.

These bonds once considered as good as gold are now being dumped by other countries as well.

Death Of The Dollar

Meanwhile, the BRICS countries are pushing ahead with their plan to kill the dollar.

The US might never again recover, just as was the case with Great Britain once the pound lost world reserve status. And looking even further back in history, losing reserve status seems to largely coincide with the fall of empires.

The writing is on the wall, but there is still a little bit of time to prepare. The question is will you do it now or wait until it’s too late like most other Americans?

You cannot hope to stop the dollar from collapsing but what you can do is become less dependent on it. Saving soon-to-be worthless paper won’t help you or your family survive. But using your dollars to become self-sufficient just might. Let me show you 70+ DIY Projects That Will Help You Survive the Death of the Dollar. These ingenious projects do not cost much or involve hard work, but they will cover every one of your survival needs: food, water, electricity, security, medicine, communication, waste management, etc.

Those Who Do Not Learn History Are Doomed To Repeat It: A Horror Story From The Distant Past, About How The Worst Famine In The US History Killed 3 Out Of 4 People

For as long as there have been people, there’s been famine. Our hunter-gatherer ancestors developed agriculture because, although most people’s diets actually got worse when they started farming, it was easier to build up the stores needed to survive a future shortage. Famines still happened, though; bad weather, disease, or pests could destroy the crops, and that usually meant starvation would follow. Famines are described in the Bible and the works of Greek and Roman historians. They regularly devastated Europe through the Middle Ages and as late as the 1840s, when blight ravaged the whole continent’s potato crop (not just Ireland’s) and killed over a million people.

What fewer people know is that famine has also reared its ugly head in the USA – and reduced some of the earliest settlers to squalor, degradation and finally cannibalism. It was an episode that threatened the whole idea of European settlement in North America; it also contains a lot of lessons for preppers.

The Optimists

Settlement of North America by English speakers goes back to the Virginia Charter; issued by King James I in 1606, it authorized English subjects to set up colonies in a swathe of land up the East Coast from what’s now North Carolina to well into modern Canada. Would-be settlers didn’t waste much time; an expedition was quickly organized, and set sail from Plymouth on December 20 the same year. On May 13, 1607 they landed on the coast of Virginia, and established a settlement named in honor of their King – Jamestown.

The original group of settlers was small and all-male, comprising 104 men and boys. They were adventurous, confident people, determined to build a life for themselves in a vast new land. They were also almost completely unprepared, and lacking many of the skills and supplies they would need to survive long-term.

These colonists were setting out to live in a place they had never visited before and knew little about. Surely they would have made sure they could survive in the worst-case scenario of what they would find there? Well, no. They didn’t.

Virginia was unsettled, but not totally unknown. Explorers had sailed along its coast and even landed there. The Jamestown settlers knew the land was inhabited, and that led them to make some dangerous assumptions. In the end, those assumptions would destroy the colony.

The colonists had no plan to make themselves self-sufficient in food, which any prepper knows is a basic survival requirement. Instead, they planned to rely on trade with the indigenous people, supplemented by some farming and occasional supply ships from England. That was a mistake. To compound it, they chose a settlement location based on how easy it was to defend. That’s an important factor in choosing a settlement, but it’s not the only factor.

Jamestown was located on a small island in the James River, separated from the mainland by a narrow channel. That channel made the island easy to defend, but it also meant there wasn’t a lot of game on it; the settlers couldn’t rely on hunting as a food source. Much of the island was also tidal wetlands, which couldn’t be farmed, and it was close enough to the sea that the water in the James River was brackish and undrinkable. As a place to build a self-sufficient settlement, it couldn’t have been much worse.

Despite its faults, though, Jamestown grew steadily for the next two years. Only 38 of the original settlers survived the first winter, but another hundred men joined them in January 1608. More arrived in October, including the colony’s first two women, and another 250 through the summer and fall of 1609. It seemed that Jamestown was a success – but that was all about to change.

The Fatal Food Supply Mistakes

Jamestown was situated on land that belonged to the Powhatan tribe, and relations between Chief Powhatan – father of the famous Pocahontas – and the settlers had often been tense. However, by mid-1609 personal respect between Chief Powhatan and leading colonist Captain John Smith had brought a truce, and the Powhatan tribe was the main source of the colony’s food.

Unfortunately, in August 1609 Smith was badly injured in a gunpowder explosion, probably an assassination attempt. His wounds were too severe for the colonists to treat, so in October – with winter approaching – he left for England on one of the ships that had brought more settlers. The leadership of the colony was taken over by John Ratcliffe, who didn’t have Smith’s knack of dealing with the natives, and Chief Powhatan decided to end the truce.

Chief Powhatan’s strategy was simple. He’d been observing the settlers since they arrived, and knew how precarious their food situation was, so there was an obvious way to force them to leave and get rid of the colony on his tribe’s land – starve them out.

Supply ships from England throughout 1609 had brought several hundred new colonists, but they hadn’t brought a lot of food. Most of the rations that had left England had been on a ship which separated from the supply fleet in a storm and ended up wrecked on Bermuda. Jamestown had pinned all its hopes on buying food from the Powhatan, and now that source was suddenly cut off.

To make matters even worse, a drought in the summer had wiped out almost all the crops in Jamestown’s small farms. Granaries and root cellars were virtually empty. Now, deliveries from the Powhatan stopped and the tribe began killing any settler who ventured onto the mainland to hunt. Jamestown went into the winter of 1609/10 with close to 500 residents, but stores to feed barely a tenth of that number until spring.

The Starving Time

Most of Jamestown’s early history is well enough known; settlers kept diaries, wrote letters home and sent reports to the Virginia Company and the King. In fall of 1609, though, the historical record suddenly goes dark. There are few detailed accounts of what happened in Jamestown between Captain Smith’s departure for England on October 4 and the arrival of two ships from Bermuda on May 23, 1610. Why? Probably because nobody who lived through that winter in Jamestown wanted to talk about what they did to survive.

The accounts that do survive tell of desperate measures. A few Indians were still willing to supply small amounts of food – but only in exchange for essentials that the colonists wouldn’t normally even consider trading. In early winter, many Jamestown residents gave away the tools they needed to build, farm and work at their trades. Some even traded the weapons they needed to defend themselves. It still wasn’t enough.

For archaeologists, rubbish heaps are a gold mine of information. Plant remains and household rubbish can tell us a lot about how people lived in the past, but few things are more informative than animal bones. If your dog dies and you’re not very sentimental, you might throw its body in the trash – but you won’t joint it first. That winter, the people of Jamestown were cutting up their dogs and throwing the bones in the trash. By that point the horses had probably all been eaten, and when the dogs were gone cat and rat bones started turning up in the rubbish heaps. Unable to hunt, the colonists were eating every animal they could get their hands on. But soon the animals were all gone, too, and at that point truly horrible things began to happen in the starving settlement.

Dark rumors about the colonists’ desperation have made it into the history books. There are tales of freshly buried corpses – and there were many burials that winter – being dug up overnight and butchered for meat. A husband was supposedly burned at the stake for killing his wife and hiding her salted flesh in his house. Foraging parties came back a man short, and some of them probably weren’t killed by Indians. These were all just stories, though. Then, in 2012, proof was found that the people of Jamestown really did resort to eating each other.

A forensic facial reconstruction of the 14-year-old victim of cannibalism at Jamestown during the winter of 1609.

Cannibalism has happened often enough in human history that archaeologists are familiar with the distinctive cut marks left on the bones of victims. When the skull, jawbone and one leg of a girl aged about 14 were found in the cellar of the old Jamestown fort, where the colonists sheltered from Indian attacks that winter, archaeologists examined the remains for clues to what killed her. What they found was gruesome – she’d been butchered with an ax or cleaver, and the flesh cut from her bones with a knife.

There’s no possibility that this luckless girl was cannibalized by the Powhatan and her remains retrieved later; while the Indians pillaged parts of the settlement, the fort was held by the colonists through the winter. The girl hadn’t been given a decent burial, either. Her remains were found mixed in with a jumble of other bones, including a horse, dogs and squirrels.

Did hungry colonists kill the girl for food, or strip away her flesh after she died of some other cause? We’ll probably never know. But, once the taboo against eating human flesh has been broken and the recently dead consumed, it’s not such a big step to start wondering which of the living could be eaten next.

Being Prepared

The Starving Time of 1610 is a horror story from the distant past, but it contains lessons no prepper should forget. The colonists’ biggest mistake was not being self-sufficient in food. They survived for a while on outside sources, but when those sources were cut off by conflict with the Powhatan and winter storms in the Atlantic, starvation became inevitable. If you plan to survive long term, you need to ensure that you can feed yourself from sources you control and that you have reserves to keep you going if crops fail or you’re under siege for a while. Otherwise, you could end up as a footnote in some future archaeologist’s paper about 21st-century cannibalism.

16 Remedies for Radiation Exposure: Radioactive isotopes look like nutrients to the body, so if the body is deficient, it will grab hold of the isotope and use it in the body. You can prevent this absorption by taking extra doses of the nutrients 

Some nuclear events are survivable.

Much depends on the type of event and your proximity to ground zero. Event possibilities range from dirty bombs that may distribute radiation over a small area, to nuclear accidents and nuclear weapon detonation that create large amounts of destruction and contamination. Your first goal is to avoid nuclear fallout, so you should take shelter immediately following a nuclear event. Then, you must mitigate the exposure that you do receive. Stay informed of local recommendations for your area, but be aware that your local news reporting may be designed to prevent mass panic, rather than give the best advice.

Harmful Effects of Radiation Exposure

The harmful effects of radiation exposure are many and varied. Some effects go unnoticed, only to cause cancers months or years later.

Before exposure and immediately after exposure, you should act quickly to prevent absorption and remove radioactive substances from the body. There are a number of supplements and compounds that can help you detoxify and prevent damage. Each acts differently and some, like Iodine, are specific to only one radioisotope, so plan to use all of these methods, or as many as possible, for best results.

The Law of Selective Uptake

One important principle in protecting the body from the absorption of nuclear isotopes is the law of selective uptake. Reduced to bare bones, it means that radioactive isotopes look like nutrients to the body, so if the body is deficient, it will grab hold of the isotope and use it in the body. You can prevent this absorption by taking extra doses of the nutrients. Iodine supplements protect against iodine-131, cesium-137 mimics potassium in the body, strontium-90 mimics calcium, Plutonium-239 mimics iron, and cobalt-60 mimics vitamin B-12. Your first line of defense it to be nutritionally sound and take supplements for these minerals or vitamin when exposure is imminent or immediately following exposure.

We’ll talk about these supplements in more detail below:

#1. Iodine

A nuclear or radiological event can release large amounts of Iodine-131 into the atmosphere. This radioactive iodine is quickly absorbed by the thyroid creating problems for the body immediately or even years later.

Researchers investigating the Chernobyl nuclear accident found that potassium Iodide reduced thyroid exposure to radiation with minimal side effects. Taking a dose of potassium Iodide or nascent iodine before the event or immediately after can fill the iodine receptors on the thyroid and prevent absorption of radioactive Iodine-131. Nascent iodine is the most bioavailable form of iodine for this purpose, but potassium iodide (KI) is often recommended as well. One dose protects the body for 24 hours. If exposure is ongoing, daily doses will be needed, follow the recommendations of local authorities.

#2. Potassium

Potassium supplements protect the body from exposure to Cesium-137, another radioactive isotope that is commonly found in the environment following a nuclear event. Since cesium-137 mimics potassium in the body, immediate doses saturate the body with potassium and prevent absorption of cesium-137. Rich potassium sources in the diet is a good first line of defense, but it may not be enough. Potassium Orotate is the best form of potassium supplements to use for radiation exposure. Follow dosing guidelines on the product you choose, since too much potassium can have ill effects.

#3. Calcium and Magnesium

Calcium and magnesium protect the body from absorbing Strontium-90. Supplementing with these nutrients has been proven to reduce strontium-90 absorption by up to 90 percent. As mentioned earlier strontium-90 mimics calcium, but these two minerals work together and need to be balanced, so for best results take daily supplements of both of these minerals.

#4. Iron

Some women take iron on a regular basis, but most men do not need regular supplementation. However, in a nuclear event, iron supplements can prevent the uptake of Plutonium-239. Take a daily iron supplement during exposure, but consult a physician about long term use.

#5. Vitamin B-12

A fast absorbing vitamin B-12 supplement, such as Methylcobalamin can protect the body from exposure to cobalt-60. Cobalt-60​ is a product of nuclear reactors, so exposure could come from an accident at a nuclear reactor. It is also used in radiation therapy and could come from a spill or a dirty bomb. Take vitamin B-12 daily, following the label recommendations.

#6. Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO)

Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) is a controversial sulfur compound that has been shown to actively detoxify the body and protect against the harmful effects of radiation. Animal studies show that DMSO protects DNA from breakage due to radiation exposure and guards against cell destruction. A Japanese study showed that even low doses of DMSO provide protection against radiation damage at a cellular level and can facilitate DNA repair. More research into DMSO is needed, but so far the results are promising. The FDA has not approved it’s use except for preservation of transplant organs and for cases of interstitial cystitis. If you choose to use DMSO, look for pure sources containing no other solvents, except possibly a small amount of water.

#7. Zeolite Clay

zeolite clay radition

Zeolites clean the body of toxins and radioactive particles in the same way they clean the environment. Their porous structure and affinity for positive ions allow them to bind toxins and nuclear waste to them and remove them as they pass through the body. Zeolite Clay can be safely taken internally and was widely used for detoxification at Chernobyl. In addition to detoxifying the body, it is useful in removing nuclear contamination from the environment and can be used to mop floors and clean walls in contaminated areas.

#8. Other Clays

Bentonite, Fuller’s Earth, Kaolin, red clay, French Green Clay, and other clays are also effective at binding nuclear waste and removing it from the body.  Clay particles are negatively charged, so positively charged radioactive ions are attracted to them. They can be taken internally or used to scrub down the body to remove external contamination. Clay’s are considered safe to consume, but be sure to purchase a pure, food grade clay.

#9. Activated Charcoal

Activated-Charcoal Natural Remedy For Radiation

Activated charcoal is useful for absorbing and neutralizing a number of poisons and toxins, including radiation. Studies show that activated charcoal is able to neutralize up to 70 percent of its weight in radioactive toxins. Other uses for activated charcoal include: natural remedy for dental infections, kidneys infections, ear infections, lowers blood pressures, water purifier and many more.

#10. Papain

Papain is a natural enzyme found in papaya fruit and known for its ability to reduce toxins. Studies in mice show that it helps exposed mice survive lethal radiation doses. Early research suggests that papain reduces skin reactions and other side effects following radiation therapy.

#11. Bee Pollen

Recent studies suggest that bee pollen is effective in preventing and relieving the negative effects of radiation therapies by boosting the body’s defenses and supporting natural functions and it could provide these same benefits after a nuclear event.

#12. Beets

Beets are excellent sources of antioxidants, which can help protect the body from the stresses of radiation exposure. They also help the body rebuild hemoglobin broken down as a result of exposure. Animal studies show that rats eating a diet heavy in beets had less effects after exposure to cesium-137. They were able to absorb and detoxify up to twice the radiation dose of the control group.

#13. Cold-pressed Organic Vegetable Oils

Olive oil, coconut oil, sesame oil and other healthy oils offer some protection during and after radiation exposure. Lipids in the oils offer protection to individual cells, lining the cell membrane and binding toxins before they can cause cell damage. Animal studies show that mice fed oil are protected from doses of x-rays ranging from 300 to 2,400 roentgens and can survive lethal doses. The recommendation is to drink ½ cup of oil as soon as possible after exposure.

#14. Organic Germanium-132

Organic Germanium-132 is an ultra-modern mineral that increases oxygenation of the cells, supports the immune system and helps the body get rid of toxins, including radiation. Recent studies in the US and Japan have been experimenting with doses of 500 to 1000 mg per day for various medical conditions, but current recommendations in Japan are that exposed individuals take 100 mg daily of Organic Germanium-132.

It is important to note that only organic germanium is recommended here. Inorganic germanium is highly toxic. In minerals, the term organic has a different meaning than in food and inorganic germanium is a completely different compound.

#15. Prussian Blue

Prussian Blue, also known as ferric ferrocyanide, is useful as an antidote for Cesium-137 when the radioactive isotope has been ingested. In the Brazilian Goiânia incident, researchers found that treatment with up to 10 grams of Prussian Blue daily removed up to 70 percent of the Cesium-137 from the body and reduced it’s effects accordingly. This is an experimental antidote for use only in cases of known exposure to cesium-137.

#16. Organic Brewers Yeast

Some sources recommend organic Brewers yeast for preventing the effects of radiation and helping the body repair after exposure. Give 5 to 15 mg to children and 25 to 50 mg to adults. For cases of known exposure, this dose can be safely doubled or even tripled.

Other Recommendations

During and following a nuclear event, nutrition and general health are vitally important. Eating fruits and vegetables containing high amounts of antioxidants will help protect the body from the harmful effects of radiation. Obviously, do not consume plants that have been exposed to fallout or grown in contaminated soil, but frozen, dried, freeze-dried and safe fresh produce are healthy and give the body systems a boost.

For best results, each of these remedies should be begun immediately upon a nuclear event or exposure. Preparation is key. You should have these ingredients on hand before an event along with instructions on how to use them.

The S**t Just Hit The Fan And The World As We Know It Has Come To An End…Now What? The #1, absolutely, positively, you’re going to die mistake, is to take the ‘Lone Wolf’ approach.  

Lots of “experts” have covered this subject and depending on which survival forum you frequent the most, it will result in completely different and sometimes opposite advice.  In my opinion, some of the advice will prove deadly to most preppers.  So if the SHTF, the easy answer for what to do and where to go is….  there is no easy answer and there are too many variables to give you a definite, “hey, go do this!”  What I am going to try to do is to get you thinking and to show you what NOT to do.  You will have to come up with your own game plan for your family depending on where you live.  I am also going to address some ideas for those of you with minimal preparations.  Now remember, every family’s situation is different and there is no one size fits all advice or recommendation.

The first thing that you need to realize is that your plan of action will be different depending on what type of SHTF scenario you encounter.  As preppers, we know that things in this country are not as they seem.  We know that the stock market hitting all time highs while at the same time having a record percentage of Americans not in the work force spells trouble.  Fairly soon we will have a nuclear Iran and combined with the threat of North Korea, we face a realistic and imminent threat of an EMP attack.  The Pharmaceutical companies are no longer developing antibiotics and with the over-prescription of them by doctors, a nationwide or global pandemic could certainly be in our future.  With a porous southern border and verified terrorists entering our country at an alarming rate, a physical attack on the electric grid could be in the works.  We can see the writing on the wall.  In my last article I recommended that you prepare for the worst and hope for the best.  Same theory goes here as well.  The worst case scenario, would be a long-term loss of the electric grid.

Lone Wolf

So what should you do and where should you go if there is a long-term SHTF scenario?  First off I’m going to tell you what not to do.  The #1, absolutely, positively, you’re going to die mistake, is to take the “Lone Wolf” approach.  You know who I’m talking about.  The guy on the prepping forum that plans to move out to the national forest and “live off the land” like the Legend of Mick Dodge.  I would estimate that only 30% of those individuals actually believe they have the necessary skills to pull it off, while the other 70% are too lazy to actually make long term preparations and they’ve just convinced themselves that if Rambo can do it, then they can too.  Either way, none of them have ever stopped to actually consider what surviving in the wild looks like AFTER YOU FACTOR IN A SHTF SCENARIO.  While a small percentage of the 30% might make it through the winter in normal times, only a small fraction could do it during a SHTF scenario.

First off, I’m speaking from experience.  I’ve actually done it.  I’ve spent an entire month in the mountains of Washington State during January with six feet of snow, almost no food, and very limited supplies during my training to become a SERE Instructor.  During that month I lost over fifteen pounds of muscle (for a 6′ 4″, 190lb, 19 year old in peak physical shape, that is a lot!).  I can make a solid prediction that 99% of people that go this route will not make it through the first winter.  I can already see those of you who disagree.  You  are your sharpening your hypothetical knives and getting ready to crucify me in the comments section telling me about your amazing prowess as a half-man and half wildling creature that was raised by a pack of wolves in the forest.  Please read through my rational before you keyboard commandos comment.

To begin with, living in the wild during peak conditions is hard enough.  Very few Lone Wolf types have actually done it during the dead of winter for any extended period of time.  Hiking-in your Mountain House freeze-dried food doesn’t count and won’t get you far.  I’m talking about actually foraging for your food when there’s two feet of snow on the ground.  There are no berries to save the day and no dandelion salads to be scavenged.  During my training to become a SERE Instructor, we literally spent as much time during the day chopping and splitting firewood as we did training and instruction.  It takes an incredible amount of time, energy, and calories to maintain a fire in the winter.  It’s not like you can take a chainsaw with you.  Where are you going to get more gas?  Besides, using a chainsaw will bring in other hungry Lone Wolfs from miles around.  Even an axe will bring in unwanted guests from long distances.  Okay, so you’re going to use a handsaw… good luck with that, you’ll never be able to maintain the calories needed to use it long term.  So you have a magic supply of firewood stashed in the woods somewhere, pre-planned for this scenario…good for you.  It will run out faster than you think.


All this talk of procuring firewood doesn’t really matter anyways, because the second you light a fire, you are attracting attention from a long way off.  All the other thousands of Lone Wolfs and the locals who are hunting the big forests will be drawn to your camp like moths to the flame.  And the locals probably won’t take too kindly to you infringing on their favorite hunting spot.  How do you plan to warm yourself, dry your sleeping bag, boil your water, or cook your meat without a fire?  Some will try to convince me about using a Dakota fire hole or a rock ledge overhang etc. to hide their smoke and flame, but that doesn’t work either.  Those methods only minimize a fire’s signature not eliminate it.  When we train pilots who might get shot down behind enemy lines, we teach them that a fire is only acceptable in a life and death situation (i.e. you fall in a frozen lake).  I vividly remember during one of my trips to the mountains noticing a strange, slow pulsing orange glow about a half mile away on the next mountain over.  I asked the instructor what I was seeing and I learned that another element of trainees was on that hillside.  One of them was breaking the rules of evasion, and smoking!  In the dark cloudless night, the entire forest around him lit up faintly each time he pulled in a puff.  Don’t try to convince me how you’re going to hide a campsite, your fire, let alone the smoke and the smell of fresh meat from the thousands of other people wandering around the woods.


That is the number one thing I hear from the Lone Wolf’s on how they will survive: by hunting.  What they don’t understand is that with thousands of other Lone Wolf’s roaming the forests combined with all the other locals who are also going to be hunting for their family’s sustenance, THERE WON’T BE A SINGLE DEER OR OTHER BIG GAME ALIVE within a month of the SHTF.  You might be able to survive off game during normal times, but not during a SHTF scenario.  You’ll be lucky to shoot a squirrel or a rabbit a month.  There are hunting seasons for a reason: to maintain the big game populations.  You figure in 350 million starving Americans and no game wardens; you’re going to find a hunter behind every tree and in every small patch of woods throughout this country during the first couple months following the collapse.  Let’s say you get lucky and shoot a deer.  Guess what, you’re more than likely to have a dozen starving hunters that heard your shot and show up while you’re gutting it out.  I hope you intend to share your prize or be ready to kill a fellow human being to keep what’s yours.


I could go on for ten more pages on the reasons why you don’t want to Lone Wolf your way through a SHTF scenario.  But for now, I will add one more reason, and it’s the biggest one… desperate, starving people!  A very small percentage of you reading this MIGHT be able to convince me of your wilderness scavenging skills.  However, what you will never convince me of is the other 99% of Lone Wolfs who don’t have our skill sets.  Even though you might be able to survive the cold, the hunger, and the depression, you’ll never convince me that you’ll survive the desperate and hungry Lone Wolf’s who are not making it: the ones who have decided they’d rather kill you for your food then die of starvation on their own.  It only takes one starving Lone Wolf to creep up on you at night (don’t forget you are a Lone Wolf so nighttime security details don’t exist) and shoot you from 100 yards away with their Pappy’s 30-06.  I don’t care about your security measures or your hidden trip lines… it’s just a matter of time till someone pops you off from distance on the hope you “might” have something in your pack that they can eat.  Every second of every day in the forest, you run the risk of being shot from a distance.  All the tactical training in the world won’t save you from stumbling upon a hunter who is in a tree-stand or hidden in some brush.  If you Lone Wolf it through the SHTF, you will almost assuredly die!


The next type of survival strategy I would shy away from would be the “Taker” or “Looter” theology.  These are the types of survivalists I hate the most.  They are too lazy to prepare ahead of time and they plan to just take what they need from those of us planning for hard times.  Do not under-estimate these types of people.  This is another reason why it is so critical to keep your preparations private.  Even when sharing information with your closest friend, you can’t be sure who he is talking to about your plans.  Even in an innocent conversation, it only takes one looter to hear your name and the fact that you have plans laid out.  They will eventually show up to take your food when the SHTF.  These types of survival scum will become ruthless, and with no moral compass and no police to stop them, they will be the ones committing some of the greatest atrocities.  If you are a prepper, steer clear of these types on the forums and message boards and especially in real life.  Don’t engage them or try to change their thinking.  You want them to know as little about yourself and your plans as possible.  Matthew 26:52 (the Voice) clearly spells out a warning to these types, “People who live by the sword will die by the sword.”  Even if you aren’t into “religion” there’s still karma that is going to catch up to you.  Again, don’t under-estimate these types.  The “looters” who survive the first couple months without getting shot, will have figured out a pretty good game plan on how to assault a retreat.


The next segment of preppers would be what I call the “Roamers”.  These are the people who plan to pack up their RV and hit the open road headed for some campsite or trying to drive to some remote area of Canada hundreds of miles away.  First off, if we are hit by a Super EMP, there is a good chance your RV may not even run.  Assuming it does, there are going to be traffic jams of people running out of gas all over this country you are going to have to bypass.  Unless you have a custom built 4WD rig with a winch and reinforced bumper, you may be driving hundreds of extra miles out of your way which takes extra gas (which you have to haul) and extra time (which you don’t have).  Again, during a grid down scenario, it is vital that you leave town immediately and you’ll only have two to three days before total panic develops in the bigger cities and four to five days before things fall apart in the small towns.  The last place you want to be is out on the open road with tens of millions of people fleeing the big cities.  If you are driving around in a big vehicle laden with food and supplies, you are a target.  I hope your vehicle is protected with AR500 steel panels because you are now a bullet magnet.

Suburban Bunkers

Another bad idea is typically by rich people who want to build bunkers in their back yards in suburbia.  Now, I am not against bunkers in general, just the ones in town.  Let me be clear here:  cabin fever is a real thing.  While it may not be as crazy as “Here’s Johnny!” from The Shining, it will still make you go crazy.  This is compounded if you have multiple family members and small children cooped up in a small space underground.  Humans were never meant to live underground.  While a good bunker is a great short-term fall back plan or storage location for your supplies, don’t plan to live there long-term.  You will get claustrophobic and start coming up more and more often for sunshine, fresh air and to grow your garden.  Eventually you’ll get caught.  Living in a bunker isn’t living, it’s marinating.


The next group I want to discuss is what I call the “Pacifists”.  These are the Mother Earth News types (don’t get me wrong, I love that magazine).  These are the preppers you often see on Doomsday Preppers who are building a sustainable off grid homestead in conjunction with the small town they live in.  They are the ones who actually have the skills in place beforehand and you would think they would have the best chance of survival.  Similar to the Amish, they grow their own food and operate a small farm stand in town selling and trading free-range eggs and grass fed beef.  The problem is, MOST of these types suffer from two fatal flaws.

  1. They operate out in the open and the typically the entire town knows where they operate from.  Unfortunately, once those townspeople who absolutely loved you beforehand start to starve to death, THEY ARE COMING FOR YOUR FOOD.  You can’t keep everyone fed no matter how large your homestead is and how badly you want to help people.  They will either consume all your winter stores from your charity or eventually they will take them by force.  Either way, you don’t make it through the first winter.
  2. “Pacifists” are typically the hippie types who don’t believe in guns and believe in the overall goodness of man’s human nature.  They are the ones you see on Doomsday Preppers running around with Super Soakers filled with pepper spray… clown shoes!  If you are faced with a starving and desperate mob of locals or transients and you bust out your Super Soaker, you are going to get shot and killed at some point in time.  You can’t bring a knife to a gunfight and expect to live.  You can have all the skills and preparations in place, but if you are unwilling or unable to defend them with force when necessary, you will lose everything… guaranteed!  The “everyone works together attitude” ONLY WORKS if everyone has enough food to eat.  Once people start to starve to death, there is no such thing as sharing.

Survive in Place

Okay, I’m taking a big breath here and exhaling slowly.  For all those Lone Wolfs who are going to react negatively to what I’ve said, there are going to be ten times more people that disagree with my next section.  I am probably speaking to the largest segment of preppers out there… the “Bug-in” or “Survive in Place” preppers.  These are the honorable middle class people who live in cities and small towns across the country and can’t afford to build a remote off grid retreat to bug out to.  I get it!  I was actually one of you at one point myself.  Most of the people that fall into this category are there because they don’t see another reasonable way out.  You know the city around you is going to explode, but what else can you do and where else can you go?  This is the most frustrating part for most preppers, and to some, it makes the point of prepping almost hopeless.  I know there are a lot of people who are storing up hundreds of gallons of water and hundreds, if not thousands, of pounds of survival gear and food in their basement in downtown suburbia.  Now, I am going to throw you “Survive in Placers” a bone here.  If your only fear is a short term disaster, hurricane, or small financial collapse then you will likely be okay.  For anything long-term where we lose the electric grid or there is a total collapse and mass panic for a long period of time, you are screwed.

Unfortunately, instead of thinking and planning your way through it, there are tons of “experts” out there that stroke your hopelessness and write books and articles explaining how to take the easy road and “hide in plain sight”.  They teach you things like “build a tall fence around your backyard”.  Yeah… like your next door neighbor isn’t going to hear you hoeing and digging up your backyard for a garden.  Also, the looters and raiders roaming around are going to notice a high fence right off the bat.  You might as well hang a sign on your fence that reads “Garden Full of Food”.  They teach you how to turn your suburban home into a “fortress”.  Please, catch me while I fall over laughing.  Your average home CAN NOT be made into a fortress.  Regardless of the action movies you’ve seen, walls do not stop bullets!  Your house is not fire-proof!  You are not Rambo!  And boarding up your windows or installing steel grates or shutters over them will only draw attention to your home.  These groups of looters and raiders are going to become really proficient, really fast at assaulting homes.  If they can’t force you out because every family member in the house was prior Seal Team 6, then they’ll wait you out with superior numbers.  How do you plan on stepping outside to maintain your garden?  You have just become a prisoner in your own home.  If you do go through the enormous expense to turn your home into a fortress, then you should have just bought a few remote acres and built a small off grid cabin!  The other thing you need to be aware of are “firestorms”.  A lot of the big cities are going to burn down to the ground, especially the older ones and city centers where houses are built close together.  It only takes one idiot trying to warm their home with a charcoal grill to set fire to entire city blocks.  If its a windy day, and with no firefighters to stop the blaze, the fires could grow enormous and spread to the suburbs.  These so called “Bug-In Experts” are going to be responsible for the deaths of millions of Americans because they don’t know what they are talking about and don’t understand the concept that a desperate and starving neighbor will eventually kill you for a can of peaches.  They have never been to a third world country and have never done any research or studied human desperation.

Fortify My Street

The same philosophy of the “Survive in Place” crowd also spills in to what I call the “Fortify My Street” preppers similar to the book Lights Out by David Crawford.  While it is an entertaining read with a few hidden gems of wisdom, for the most part, they never realistically explain how they feed all those people on a daily basis.  This is an area where a lot of preppers aren’t prepared at all.  Most preppers buy a years worth of freeze dried food not realizing that they are actually getting about seven to eight months of actual food (barely enough to make it through a single winter).  Very few preppers, aside from those that homestead already and are currently living off grid, have a clue how much food is actually needed to make it through a winter.  And I don’t mean make it until spring, but until your actual crops start producing a harvest where you can replenish your food stuffs.  If you plan to fortify your suburban cul-de-sac, you better be 100% sure that EVERY SINGLE PERSON on your block has the same amount of food, ammo, and seeds as you do.  What is most likely going to happen is everyone is going to talk the talk but very few of them are going to actually put their money where their mouth is and buy long term food.  At the end of the day, YOUR FAMILY’S FOOD is going to be distributed among the group once they figure out that you aren’t starving like everyone else.  The group WILL confiscate your food eventually… guaranteed!  Now granted, as a group you have some strength in numbers, but if your cul-de-sac is on the outskirts of town, I can assure you that eventually there are going to be raiding parties much bigger than your band of merry men.  The moral of the story here is: If you stay in the city, you will be overrun… eventually.

The overwhelming truth in all these scenarios, once again, comes down to a single focus.  It’s not the EMP, the cyber attack, or the solar flare that is going to kill you.  Your plans MUST include staying as far away from the starving masses as possible.  Aside from the resurgence of long forgotten diseases like cholera and dysentery from poor sanitation and hygiene, the starving and desperate masses (even the everyday Joes) are going to be the real killers.  So maybe I’ve convinced you to second guess some of your plans.  Now what?  Back to square one?  Not quite.  All the supplies and food you’ve already attained is still needed.  You just need to stage them far away from the population centers and you can actually do this on a budget.  Don’t bank on the fact that you are going to have a running vehicle or clear roads to load up all your gear and bug out of town.  Regardless, you must get out of town which means bugging out.  To do so requires a pre-organized plan of action though.  Here are my recommendations.

Some would say to find an existing survival group on a prepping forum, especially if you have some sort of skill or expertise to bring to the table.  That may work out for you if you’re a doctor or surgeon and I am not discounting the idea.  Just be careful.  The TV show Doomsday Preppers is a perfect example of how bats**t crazy some preppers are.  By the way, if you are getting the bulk of your prepping advice from the aforementioned TV show… you are doing it wrong!

If you can’t afford a bug out retreat location, I would first point you to family members (even extended family) that live well away from the city.  If you think discussing the whole prepping idea with them will make you the “crazy nephew” at family get-togethers, then just rent a storage unit close to where they live and cache your supplies there.  Once the SHTF is in full effect and you show up at their doorstep with food, your former preparations will make you out to be a genius and a forward thinker.  If you don’t have rural relatives, then I would suggest you take up renting cabins in the mountains for weekend getaways pre-SHTF.  Do your research and make sure the cabins fit within the retreat location parameters.  Also, try to find rentals that are corporate owned and not a cabin that some family rents when they are not using it.  A carefully worded casual conversation with the management company or the person renting you the cabin can go a long way to getting an answer to that question.  Don’t get me wrong, this is a time-consuming process and it may take you multiple weekends to find the right cabin, but it is a lot better option than staying in town.   Again, cache your supplies in a storage unit near that cabin.  On a side note, you are not taking that cabin from someone else, you are hoping it will stay abandoned.  If the owners do show up, please realize that YOU are the intruder, not them.  If you have any savvy whatsoever, you should be able to explain the SHTF scenario to the owners and explain the benefits of joining forces with them for security purposes and extra manpower growing a large garden.

Last bit of advice

Lastly, if you procrastinated your prepping and the SHTF before you are ready, follow the advice I lay out to my co-workers in chapter 3 of my first book.  It is risky, but it is still realistic and far better than hanging out in town waiting to get over-run.  Knowledge is power, and if you can articulate well what the future holds after a grid down situation, you WILL EVENTUALLY be able to find a rural farmer to take you in.  The key here is having something to trade for room and board, and it doesn’t have to cost a lot.  You need to have a pre-planned bug-out strategy with paper maps of the rural area you are headed for.   Your area should be away from a major city by at least 100 miles.  If you live in New Jersey or Washington DC, you may have to travel much further to get away from the sprawling cities and population centers.  Locate a rural, preferably elderly farmer or couple.  Explain to him what is going on in the world and persuade him that he needs you and your family’s help to survive the coming apocalypse.  The best way to get room and board from him is to have something he needs in trade. This goes back to your basic survival gear, having weapons and ammo to help protect his farm and hunt, offering you and your family’s younger muscles to plant and harvest (this will need to be done by hand, because a tractor will attract too much attention after the SHTF), offering to help keep 24-hour surveillance over the farm and crops, and most importantly having seed to plant the next harvest.  I grew up on a small farm and every farmer I know buys his seed two days before planting.  If you did have a stash of food in a storage unit down the road, it will make this conversation MUCH easier (but keep this information as a last resort, your ace card).  Also, this recommendation is ideally for the first week after the SHTF.  After that, people will be really on edge and approaching multiple farms and knocking on doors will be a far more dangerous of a preposition.  I realize that this is a scary scenario, and the perceived “safety” and “comfort” of staying in your own home is hard to let go of especially when you have lots of “experts” telling you you’ll be just fine.  You won’t!  Please head my advice and get out of the cities IMMEDIATELY while you still can!  The uncomfortable nature of this plan is sure better than figuring out three weeks into the SHTF that your decision to board up the windows in your duplex was a very bad decision, and by then it has become far too dangerous to travel on the open road.

All the recommendations I have laid out in this article are still SITUATIONAL dependent.  Every person’s location and circumstances are different.  If you live in Las Vegas and you’re surrounded by desert for hundreds of miles, Bugging-out by foot would be extremely difficult: almost impossible without caches of water and supplies along your route (hint hint).  Having a classic 4WD pickup to get of the city in this scenario would be almost vital and at the top of the list for your survival needs.  Maybe you do have an old RV that will get you where you need to go… great, than utilize it.  Maybe you’re a “Pacifist Homesteader” but at the same time, you’ve negotiated with a “security team” to come help you protect your farm after the SHTF… well that may work for you (make sure they’re trustworthy people).  What I’m saying is to stay adaptable and flexible, but at the same time, never underestimate the starving masses or what your next door neighbor is capable of once his children start starving to death.  Regardless of your circumstances, please don’t make the mistake of thinking that you can “hide in plain sight” in a big city.  You can’t!  It’s just a matter of time till they find you and your food!  Good Luck!

The Holodomor is Coming, and Famine is Coming With It. What Will You Do to Protect Yourself and Your Family? What Will You Do When You Cannot Get Enough Food?

by Jack Metir

In a world such as this, where every freedom is being relinquished, where every aspect of life is being controlled, where every state threat is a lie, where every truth is avoided; what will become of man? Power and control over large populations can only be achieved over time, and initially in smaller steps, but as the progression of tyranny consumes the majority, extreme force will be more easily accepted. All totalitarian systems rely on voluntary servitude in order to exist, because there are so many more of us than them. Once this state of willing cowardice and indifference claims the population like a ‘virus,’ this mass sickness of society will consume itself, and all that will remain will be a life of slavery and misery; due to dependence on the very masters who brought about the plot to control the people.

You have accepted the lies, you have accepted self-imprisonment in your own homes, you have accepted the forced loss of your jobs and sustenance, you have accepted the abandonment of family and friends, you have accepted the wearing of deadly masks, you have accepted mandates to self-mutilate with experimental bio-weapon injections, you have accepted tyranny, and you have accepted all this and more without an effective fight. Now, that same ruling class of evil monsters that have feasted on your fears, are taking away your food. They (rulers and governments) are closing off farm land, they are prosecuting fake wars that will greatly harm the food supply. They are buying farmland to leave it dormant. They are killing and starving animals meant for food, they are closing off supply lines, and they are doing these things intentionally in order to bring you to your knees. What will you do when there is no food?

Today, people are awaiting their next order, they are awaiting the next false-flag ‘emergency;’ they are awaiting permission to live free. They are doing this without much resistance, mainly because resistance requires courage and an acceptance of truth, and of course, self-responsibility for one’s own being. While this mass apathy runs rampant, the evil that is the controlling class, is plotting to build a global governing system meant to take control of every aspect of life as we know it. They have even named it the ‘New World Order,’ or now the ‘Great Reset.’ They are doing this openly, and in full view of all. The plots of the powerful, those like Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum, the entire Davos crowd, all the top political classes and governments, including presidents and rulers worldwide, the insanely rich whores that control banking, huge corporate entities, agriculture, medical care, pharmaceuticals, and technology, are all on board with this attempted takeover of humanity.

Of course, those who cling to the state narrative, and the state supporting ‘fact checkers’ who protect that narrative, will call foul on all those exposing truth, and given the gullibility of the masses, most will not understand what is going on until it is too late. Among all the other risks we face, and all the terror that has been especially obvious in the past two plus years, we now are facing huge food and energy shortages in the near future and beyond; food shortages that are being announced in advance by the same political class perpetrating this fraud. This purposeful attempt to outline what horrors are coming by the very perpetrators of the threat, is psychological torture meant as cover for planned nefarious deeds. The warnings are mere announcements of the state plot to destroy society.

The fabricated scam called the ‘virus pandemic,’ and the ensuing response to that false threat, were meant to stifle or destroy economic activity, eliminate freedom, harm markets, cause mass fear, and decimate supply lines. Recently, in order to bolster that criminal plot, a staged war between Russia and Ukraine was used to enhance the horrors already in place. It just so happens, another ‘coincidence’ of course, that food, energy, and fertilizer production in these areas was vital to many parts of the world. With this fake war came huge supply line disruption, monetary madness, intentional shortages of wheat, fertilizer, animal food stocks, and energy, causing all prices to escalate dramatically almost overnight. This had repercussions around the world, including the U.S., as these scheduled agendas against humanity all began to fall into place.

With supply line closures came shortages, shortages caused much more price inflation, price inflation caused more poverty and starvation, and economic harm to food producing farms and ranches that had already been decimated by the closing of all restaurants during the ‘Covid’ scam. These things and more led to the fulfilment of long planned agendas previously outlined by the ruling class. Today, so-called ‘world leaders such as Biden, Trudeau, Schwab, Johnson, and many others, are using these current events that they intentionally brought about to cause even more chaos and panic. They are announcing that food and energy will be scarce, and very hard times are coming; all this initiated by their hands alone. There are no real mass food and energy shortages yet, but there likely will be very soon, and for an extended period of time.

Shelves will be empty, but not due to any ‘virus,’ or Russian ‘war,’ because these exact scenarios have been played out and planned for at least seven years or longer. These are planned and scheduled events, and have never been natural.

“In November of 2015—as you can learn from an official press release on the Cargill website—”65 international policymakers, academics, business and thought leaders gathered at the World Wildlife Fund’s headquarters in Washington DC to game out how the world would respond to a future food crisis.” Over the course of two days, the participants in this “Food Chain Reaction” crisis simulation role played a response to a number of converging and overlapping crises in the 2020s, including “two major food crises, with prices approaching 400 percent of the long term average; a raft of climate-related extreme weather events; governments toppling in Pakistan and Ukraine; and famine and refugee crises in Bangladesh, Myanmar, Chad and Sudan.”

“Among the expected corporate platitudes and blather about “staying ahead of the curve” in order to “get it right,” the World Wildlife Fund highlights the key takeaway from this exercise: “Only by stopping agricultural expansion, augmenting agricultural production, increasing resource-use efficiency, and reducing food waste, can we provide the food and nourishment we need, while ensuring we are conserving nature for future generations.”

Yes, it all comes back to the fictitious ‘climate change’ agenda, and now food animals are being slaughtered, crops are being laid to waste, supply lines are shut down worldwide, food and energy inflation is rampant, and the planned starvation of the public is now underway; just as has been gamed for years. Millions upon millions of chickens and turkeys are being slaughtered by government decree in Iowa and the Midwest, and around the world. The same is happening in some areas with cattle, hogs, and the destruction of crops, while farmers are facing bankruptcy due to government manipulation. The results of these criminal acts will directly affect all of us.

With all this, the Biden administration’s top priorities for supply line disruptions are concentrated in 4 unrelated areas; ‘Covid-19’ response teams to manufacture many more experimental, poisonous bioweapon injections called ‘vaccines,’ the manufacture and supply chain management of semiconductor chips, the Department of Defense (DOD) ‘investment’ to mine raw materials to combat ‘climate change,’ and to improve the nation’s cyber security, another false flag opportunity coming soon; all per Executive Orders 14017 and 14028.

Hell is coming, and famine is coming with it. The same situation occurred during the Great Depression, but this time it will likely be much worse, as the takeover of society, monetary chaos and digitization, and the depopulation agenda are gaining steam daily at this point. What will you do to protect yourself and your family? What will you do when you cannot get enough food? This world is embroiled in corruption and insanity, and has become a totalitarian hell. When will you say enough is enough, and will you stand your ground, or will you do nothing until it is too late?

World War III is on the Horizon, Russian and Chinese Both Nations Have Been Systematically Strengthening and Updating Their Nuclear Forces to Strike Usa: What U.S. Targets and Cities Might a Nuclear Adversary Most Likely Attack First?

The United States now faces the real and regular prospect of fighting adversaries strong enough to do Americans immense harm. The post-Sept. 11 forever wars have been costly, but a true great power war — the kind that used to afflict Europe — would be something else, pitting the United States against Russia or even China, whose economic strength rivals America’s and whose military could soon as well.

For four decades, America’s postwar presidents appreciated that the next hot war would likely be worse than the last. In the nuclear age, “we will be a battlefront,” Truman said. “We can look forward to destruction here, just as the other countries in the Second World War.” This insight didn’t keep him or his successors from meddling in third world countries, from Guatemala to Indonesia, where the Cold War was brutal. But U.S. leaders, regardless of party, recognized that if the United States and the Soviet Union squared off directly, nuclear weapons would lay waste to the American mainland.

Nuclear terror became part of American life, thanks to a purposeful effort by the government to prepare the country for the worst. The Federal Civil Defense Administration advised citizens to build bomb shelters in their backyards and keep clean homes so there would be less clutter to ignite in a nuclear blast.

What cities would be nuked first? What U.S. targets and cities might a nuclear adversary most likely attack first? Although the answer would depend largely on the sought-after strategic outcome.

For example, the adversary may decide (first?) to strike the U.S military in order to limit the ability of counterstrike. In that scenario, the most likely first strike nuclear targets would likely be larger military bases and nuclear mission facilities. More on that below…

The adversary may also decide to hit major U.S. cities. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, American cities comprise less than 4 percent of the nation’s land mass, however they are home to nearly two-in-three Americans, approximately 63 percent of the population.

Would they need to nuke a lot of cities to get their desired outcome of defeat? Maybe not. Would a nuclear exchange be a tit-for-tat, or equivalent retaliation? Maybe, maybe not…

Will a nuclear exchange every actually happen, given the certainty of mutually assured destruction? Hopefully not. However, one never knows, especially given the proxy-nation-states who also have nuclear weapons – and a hatred for the U.S.

What countries have nuclear weapons, and how many? See the list below.

6 Cities To Be Nuked

This is an update section to the original post. Consider this… Let’s say the following seven cities were on the first nuclear strike list:

  • New York City
  • Chicago
  • Houston
  • Los Angeles
  • San Francisco
  • Washington, D.C.

They’re some of the most population-dense and largest cities in the country (see the larger list below). But even more so, their unique critical infrastructure value. For example, Energy, Financial, Tech, Government.

A nuclear strike on these U.S. cities would create a chaotic follow-on effect. As a result there would be widespread panic and chaos throughout other cities descending into mayhem.

After the primary military command & control have been nuked…

After (or while) all of the primary military command and control centers have been nuked (Military Nuclear Targets), have you ever wondered which cities would be nuked first?

It’s an unpleasant thought! Therefore it is something that most people believe would never happen. Note that at one time between Russia and the United States alone, there were more than 20,000 nuclear warheads. Though apparently fewer these days, there are enough to destroy us all! See the list below…

Not that long ago during the years of the Cuban missile crisis, every American feared the worst, while the U.S. and the USSR were seemingly ready to end the world as we know it…

Since then, stockpiles have been reduced somewhat, but in the big picture it is mostly irrelevant. If anything, the world is more dangerous today as radical nations add their own nuclear weapons to the world’s nuclear arsenal.

Depending on the engagement (who, what, and to what end), military and/or key infrastructure targets may likely be hit first, but it won’t be long down the target list until major cities may be taken out.

In a worst case all-out nuclear engagement, we might consider that many or all cities could be hit, given the number of nukes that are available to countries like Russia and even China.

Top 30 Most Populated Cities

Regardless, most or many of us are at risk. However, a logical place to start the thought process may be this…

The following is a map highlighting the Top 30 most populated cities (and Metropolitan Statistical Areas – MSA) in the United States, followed by the population list for each.

The metro areas themselves are located in the middle of the yellow highlighted regions, and some of them overlap with the cities from the top-30 list (red).

The diameter of the colored regions simply represent a potential evacuation perimeter to escape nuclear fallout, although this will be widely variable depending on wind patterns, detonation (ground burst vs. air burst) and payload. It is a general illustration to help visualize an exodus.

I have included the locations of any operating nuclear power plants that happen to be located within any of the MSA’s and cities listed. They are highlighted for added risk assessment.

To see where all of the nuclear power plants are located within the United States, I’ve written the following article (and map)…

Effects of a full-scale nuclear exchange on the United States of America

The following map is fascinating. I found it sourced from Martin Vargic of who makes infographics and various maps. It’s based on data from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Wikipedia.

He takes into account the normal prevailing wind direction as it may affect nuclear fallout. Food for thought…

“A list of United States military targets likely to be hit first compared with others. Although there are lots of military installations, the following military nuclear targets logically seem more likely than others to be on primary target lists.”

“Based on a number of factors while looking at other maps and data including military installations, nuclear weapons storage and silo locations, bases, cities, etc..”

This is all simply food for thought. The talk of nuclear exchange has been hitting the news once again lately, so, I updated this original post from 2013. Since then, the article has hundreds of comments.

In my personal opinion, mutually assured destruction puts a HUGE damper on all this. After all, what crazy ‘leader’ would push the button knowing his own nation is going to get it next?

Although, on the other hand, it certainly would help with the globalists depopulation agenda, right?

In 2023 and Beyond, There Will Be More War, More Economic Turmoil, More Famines, More Pestilences and More Historic Natural Disasters. We Live in Such Troubled Times, and More People Than Ever Are Getting Prepared for Apocalyptic Scenarios

by Jack Metir

Why is the number of preppers growing so rapidly?  Prior to the pandemic, somewhere around 2 or 3 percent of all Americans were preppers, but now that figure has shot up to about 10 percent.  Needless to say, the pandemic certainly put a good scare into a lot of people, but now it has largely passed and so you would think that interest in prepping would subside.  But instead, the prepping community just continues to grow.  On a very basic level, most of us understand that the party is ending and most of us can feel that something really big is coming.  In 2023 and beyond, there will be more war, more economic turmoil, more famines, more pestilences and more historic natural disasters.  In such an environment, it will pay to be prepared.

Not too long ago, the mainstream media openly mocked those that were preparing for the meltdown of society.

They were labeled “doomsday preppers” or “survivalists”, and entire television shows were created to make fun of them.

But now everything has changed.  In fact, 60 Minutes just did a story in which they portrayed preppers as just ordinary people from all walks of life…

If you hear the term “survivalist” and it conjures images of militants and conspiracy theorists— residing on the fringes and on compounds, armed to the teeth—well, it’s time to reset your doomsday clock. A worldwide community of preppers – those who stockpile goods and skill-up for extreme catastrophes – is girding less for the end of days, than for a disaster that calls for taking cover. A climate emergency, civil unrest, the possibility of a dirty bomb, to say nothing of a global pandemic that suddenly shuts down the world. It was COVID that turned abstract apocalyptic scenarios into a reality. Modern preppers come at it from all angles and for all kinds of reasons. We went high and low, talking to a few of the millions of Americans who have joined the movement.

To me, the most interesting part of the story was when they talked to a man that worked for the Obama administration named John Ramey.  Since that time, Ramey has become quite a prepper himself, and he told 60 Minutes that at this stage approximately 10 percent of all Americans are now preppers…

We think about 15 million Americans are actively prepping right now. In terms of percentage of households, we are at or about to cross 10% of all households. And just a few years ago, that was 2% or 3%.

In the old days, the vast majority of preppers were conservatives.

But these days a lot of liberals are now prepping.

And even a lot of those liberals do not believe that the government will be able to handle the sort of apocalyptic scenarios that are rapidly approaching.  The following is one exchange from the 60 Minutes story that illustrates this point

Jon Wertheim: If there’s some kind of catastrophe, to what extent do you trust the government?

Heidi Keller: I’m not gonna down the government. I mean, they do the best that they can. But pretty much the government’s not gonna take care of you, not because they may not want to, but because there’s too much going on. That’s common sense.

What Heidi Keller said is quite true.

The government is not some all-powerful entity that can shield us from all harm.

When things start getting really bad out there, a lot of people are only going to be able to turn to themselves for assistance.

Recently, one mainstream publication called “Big Think” put out an article that contained eight statements that are meant to help you determine if you are a prepper or not…

1. I have stockpiled food and water to survive a potential major disaster.

2. I have stockpiled weapons to survive a potential major disaster.

3. I have stockpiled equipment and materials to survive a potential major disaster.

4. I regularly think through in my mind ways to survive a potential major disaster.

5. I have thought through who would be in my survival group.

6. I know where I could get more supplies to survive a potential major disaster.

7. I have a plan I could put into operation to survive a potential major disaster.

8. I have attended survival courses to help me get through a potential major disaster.

For each statement, you are supposed to give yourself a score from one to five.

According to the article, the average score is 19.  So if you gave yourself a score that is well above 19 that strongly indicates that you are probably a prepper.

Earlier today, I came across a news story which explained that the total number of people in the world is about to hit eight billion

The world’s population is set to hit eight billion next week in a key milestone for humanity, according to the United Nations.

The UN Population Division said that the population will continue to grow in the decades to come, with life expectancy set to increase to an average of 77.2 years by 2050.

By November 15, the number of humans on Earth will grow to eight billion, more than three times higher than the 2.5 billion global headcount in 1950.

Not all of those eight billion people will make it through what is ahead.

In fact, there are some people that believe that most of them will die by the time this decade is over.

Could you imagine what our world would look like if that actually happened?

The truth is that we got really lucky with the pandemic that we just went through, because the death toll was relatively low.

In the future, we could easily see pestilences that kill hundreds of millions of people.

And we are also now closer to nuclear war than we have ever been before.

In addition, the United Nations is publicly warning that “multiple famines” are likely in the coming year.

We live in such troubled times, and more people than ever are getting prepared for apocalyptic scenarios.

If you are not a prepper yet, I would very much encourage you to start doing the same.

The END Could Come In A Flash – You Have Been Warned: The Collapse of the Old System, War at Large, and the Rise of Global Tyranny AKA the New System

by Jack Metir

In 2023 you will watch three massive stories unfold before your eyes. Humanity is emerging out of its 2020 chrysalis right now. What takes flight might be the most terrifying form of society we have ever seen.

The three stories that are playing out are the collapse of the Old System, war at large, and the rise of global tyranny AKA the New System.

This could be your final warning. So, take heed. Get prepared to be on your own and in 2023 prepare like you never have before.

Supply Chain Disruption

Why isn’t the supply chain getting fixed? Why are we still hearing about supply chain disruptions?

That is because some parts are dying, some are changing, and some are under massive manipulation.

In 2023 you will continue to hear about “struggles in the supply chain” as the world goes through the greatest changes in its history.

We have issues with the mismanagement of COVID-19 lockdowns in China that are affecting manufacturing and shipping.

This has forced tens of thousands of Chinese out into the streets to protest the lockdowns and the CCP at large. In case you forgot, China makes everything! If they are busy with riots, lockdowns, and chaos like that things are going to get tough.


We are playing a game. It’s a game where we pretend, we are going to stop inflation but simultaneously printing billions of dollars over and over again.

Our monetary policy should have us in hyperinflation already, still, we are printing and pretending that we can keep inflation at bay.

In 2023 this will continue. We will struggle to convince the world that the US dollar is worth anything. Too many dollars going after too few goods will continue to drive up the cost of everything.

Decline Of The Dollar

For the reasons listed above we are dealing with a steadily declining US dollar.

The rest of the world’s fiat currencies are falling apart, too, so we don’t see it as clearly.

However, the USD is failing.

For the first time in our lifetime, we are watching a coalition of powerful nations move away from the USD and its grip on the world financial systems.

While we can control the narrative and print as much paper fiat as we need to, we are entering a phase where other nations could step away form the dollar and do real harm by creating their own alternative economies.

Nations like Iran, Russia, China, and even India are working on that right now.

Fuel Shortage

The production of fossil fuels on the world stage is being frowned on by those who are convinced that fossil fuels are the largest contributor to modern day climate change.

With the US scaling back on production and the Saudis following suit, it is clear that we will be facing a radically changing landscape on fuel production.

Costs of things like kerosene and diesel fuel have skyrocketed. The price of gasoline will continue to fluctuate wildly from limited production, war and rumors of war, and of course a growing desire to demonize fossil fuels.

Everything we have discussed to this point will lead to everything we will talk about in this section, or it has started already.


Iranian protestors have been quoted saying, “We will continue our revolution”.

And we will see this kind of language all over the world as the people are crushed more and more by oppressive governments who have less and less resources to divvy out to the people.

Civil War

Nations all around the world may not see a clear division between a despotic government and the people. In places like America the government has an iron grip and has convinced the people to take out their anger on one another.

This type of division will grow and grow as the people of the world grow more and more desperate in 2023.

World War

A few weeks ago, a missile landed in Poland from the Russian Ukrainian war. For a few moments it seemed that NATO would have no choice but to respond militarily to Russia had it been a Russian missile.

The longer this war lasts the greater the chance for a World War to start. Also, let’s not forget that China has its own plans that could do just the same. 2023 could be the year that China makes their move on Taiwan.


Over the Thanksgiving weekend the US government “minted” the Fed Coin, which is the next step, the next chess move, to thwart the collapsing dollar. There is no shadier a time to release the shadiest currency of our time.

This Fed Coin is going to not only be the NEW SYSTEMS answer to currency in the age of Bitcoin. It is also going to be the all seeing eye and the greatest controlling mechanism of global tyrants.

They will be able to control your every decision and punish you by not giving you access to your wealth that is held in their digital Fed Coin.

Climate Action

If you think you are going to be able to use your Fed Coin to buy something like a gas guzzling vehicle or anything, for that matter, that could negatively affect our planet, in the eyes of the climate tyrants, then you do not understand the power in Global Climate Action.

In Colorado in 2022 people had their thermostats hijacked and locked at 78 degrees.

We will see much of the same in all aspects of your freedoms. We are already seeing serious struggles in California power grid in charging the electric vehicles that were supposed to be the answer to vehicles powered by fossil fuels.

In 2023 more aspects of your life will be controlled in the name of climate action.

Artificial Intelligence

The growth and use of artificial intelligence will also have a massive impact on you in 2023.

I don’t think any of us know just how the powers that be will yield AI.

It will be a weapon of tyrants and we could even see that in 2023.

Whether you know it or not AI is already behind used by law enforcement. “AI algorithms can sort through  massive amounts of data to identify patterns.” (Source: The State of AI in Policing – Unite.AI)

Misinformation, Disinformation, Malinformation Policing

Maybe the most dominant force we will face off against in 2023 will be the policing of information. It’s a new battleground that has become increasingly volatile since COVID-19.

What is allowed to be said and what is allowed to be seen will be policed very closely on many social media platforms, news outlets, and many other means of getting a message to the public eye.

We will see a wider scope of censorship coming from a partnership of government and industry. We will also see greater penalties for those who dare speak out against it.

There has never been a better time to be a prepper. You have now been warned about what will come in 2023. It will be another year of things you simply cannot believe.

What are you gonna do about it?

Make 2023 a year you never forget for the sheer amount of prepping that you get done, too. The global tyrants are growing stronger by the day.

The only thing that can stop them are powerful individuals who embrace self-reliance and independence.

“Person of the Year” by leading British and American outlets gives Zelensky leverage when making requests to the West, which is why Ukraine continues to receive billions of dollars in their war against Russia

by Jack Metir

The West is emboldening Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to continue fighting Russia in 2023 by announcing him as “2022 Person of the Year” in the Financial Times and TIME magazine. Although it was his predecessors who instigated the war in 2014, it is Zelensky’s decision today, and since he came to power in 2019, to not find a peace settlement.

According to the London-based Financial Times, before the start of the Russian special military operation, he was “written off by many” and was considered “something of a joke, an amateur struggling to rise to the challenge of high office.”

The British outlet added that “the 44-year-old Zelensky has earned a place in history for his extraordinary display of leadership and fortitude.” They justified their choice by claiming that the Ukrainian president “embodies the resilience of his people and has become a standard bearer for liberal democracy.”

In the same manner, the New York City-founded TIME magazine declared Zelensky as their “2022 Person of the Year”, boasting that “Corporations followed […], fighting the tide of globalisation by dealing Russia out.”

By both of these historic outlets deciding to glorify Zelensky, the West wants to encourage Ukraine to continue its fight against Russia in 2023 instead of finding a peaceful solution. Zelensky is more than likely encouraged and will continue being a tool of Washington’s policy directed against Russia.

Zelensky’s selection as “2022 Person of the Year” is nothing personal for him though and it is almost certain that any Ukrainian president fighting against Russia would have received this recognition. In fact, it is likely that any president from any country at war with Russia at this moment would have received this recognition given the extreme anti-Moscow policies currently adopted by the West. Therefore, it is not about the person himself, but about his capabilities to serve Washington’s interests.

Effectively, as long as Zelensky continues fighting Russia, he will be bestowed with many titles, befriend Hollywood celebrities, and receive the endorsement of the Western political elite. The Ukrainian president has never been independent in his making decision-making and directly carries out orders dictated to him from Washington and London (who can forget peace negotiations ending on the orders of Boris Johnson?).

By following orders from the West and implementing anti-Russian policies, Zelensky provoked a conflict which has currently led to the death of over 100,000 people. However, this is evidently not an issue for the Ukrainian president because he would have striven for a peace deal instead of carrying out orders from the West.

Zelensky also understands that if he was to seek a peace deal with Moscow, he would most likely be ousted and replaced. Washington was capable of ousting President Viktor Yanukovych in 2014 when Kiev had much more independence, so removing Zelensky when it presently has near complete control over Ukraine’s state structures will certainly be no issue.

None-the-less, Zelensky has loyally and effectively carried out the West’s ambition to force Russia into war. For this, he was strangely compared with Britain’s World War II leader Winston Churchill by the Financial Times. At the same time, the editor-in-chief of TIME justified the Ukrainian president’s selection as their “2022 Person of the Year” because “Whether the battle for Ukraine fills one with hope or with fear, the world marched to Volodymyr Zelensky’s beat in 2022.”

Meanwhile, US President Joe Biden and Zelensky spoke on December 9 to discuss the war and recent efforts by Washington to strengthen Ukraine’s air defences. Zelensky thanked Biden for the $275 million security assistance package, which is on top of the tens of billions of dollars already sent, and for the wider and “unprecedented” American support for Kiev.

“(Biden) reaffirmed the US commitment to continue providing Ukraine with security, economic, and humanitarian assistance, holding Russia accountable for its war crimes and atrocities, and imposing costs on Russia for its aggression,” the White House said in a statement.

Zelensky said the “unprecedented defence and financial assistance” from the US helped “not only to succeed on the battlefield,” but also to “maintain the stability of our nation’s economy,” according to a Ukraine Presidency statement.

Not wanting to be outdone by Biden though, Boris Johnson on December 12 called on British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to supply Ukraine with long-range missiles. For his part, Zelensky said at a G7 virtual meeting on the same day that: “We need more rocket artillery and more long-range missiles.”

Despite this double pressure, there is little indication that Sunak will allow long-range missiles to be sent as they could give Ukraine the ability to launch strikes in Russia, something that Russian President Vladimir Putin has already warned will be a “red line”.

None-the-less, being recognised as “Person of the Year” by leading British and American outlets gives Zelensky leverage when making requests to the West, which is why Ukraine continues to receive billions of dollars in their war against Russia. Such glorification will continue as long as he continues to effectively serve Western interests.

We Are Fast Approaching the Stage of the Ultimate Inversion: the Stage Where the Government is Free to Do Anything It Pleases, While the Citizens May Act Only by Permission

by Jack Metir

While the masses continue to happily accept any and every tiny bit of ‘permission’ to have a miniscule amount of ‘freedom,’ all at the whim of the rulers, the drive toward more ‘climate change’ lockdown policy and societal regulation and total control are going forward quickly and without restriction. The candy offered to the herd in the form of temporary lifting of draconian mandates is meant only to satisfy the short-term longing of the proletariat so as to gain future compliance and obedience from the sheep in order for the state to create a true slave society. One of the  linchpins of this plot is to concentrate the population into so-called ‘smart’ cities, with 15 minute zones, where no travel outside this time frame is allowed without very restrictive monitoring. This is true insanity sold in the form of convenience, safety, and the bogus claim of protecting the earth.

Preparation, trials, and implementation of these atrocious prison-system cities are fully underway, and are being planned and sold as a public ‘good,’ an atrocious and deceptive lie. As I write this, 15-minute cities are being actively planned in Saudi, Arabia called “The Line,” Dubai, UAE, Oxford, U.K., Australia in Melbourne and Brisbane, in Spain in Barcelona, Buenos Aries, and even in Portland, Oregon in the Fascist U.S. While most have been asleep and basking in ignorance believing that totalitarianism has lessened, the master technocratic plot has never slowed. For those who are feeling left out, worry not, as a 15 minute prison system will soon be in a city or town near you.

Oxfordshire County in the U.K. is moving very fast to set up the first complete 15-minute city scam, and has announced a full “TRIAL” for January 2024. This is simply a climate lockdown trial meant to prepare the citizenry for continuous lockdowns, or more accurately, a minor existence in incarceration centers. Keep in mind that the plot to control the world depends on concentrating populations into smaller centers, with exhaustive technological measures of government regulation and authority that will require complete and total surveillance of all. This will be based on the ‘climate change’ lie, and world domination depends on a controlled, digital monetary system, that is also being structured by the central banking systems worldwide, and privately run by the ruling class. This is the same deep state that controls all government. Once the centralized bank digital currencies become reality, all freedom will end. The idea and implementation of controlled digital currencies is anathema to all liberty, and is mandatory for state control.

Once again I must mention the “big picture,”  as everything going on from ‘virus lies,’ ‘variants,’ staged wars, ‘climate change,’ CBDCs, 15-minute cities, transgender nonsense, fake racism, bioweapon injections, and a myriad of current and future control scenarios, are all meant to accomplish but one thing, and therefore, they are all linked, and all part of the singular agenda of total technocratic control of all people on earth. This is exactly what the ‘great reset,’ the new one world government, and the monetary takeover are all about. Regardless of which particular plot is the news item of the day, it is simply all meant to achieve but one end. Do not disregard all of the minor plots, but recognize that the single plot desired is to control you and all on earth, and nothing less.

The case addressed here can be summed up with one statement coming from the World Economic Forum (WEF) on March 15, 2022.

“As climate change and global conflict cause shocks and stresses at faster intervals and increased severity, the 15-minute city will become even more critical.”

This single statement connects the entire fake ‘climate change’, and Ukraine (all war) scenarios and agendas as reasoning to lockdown the world. Make no mistake, this is the plan that is and has been in high gear for decades, but especially so since the bogus ‘covid’ lockdown terror levied at the hands of the state in 2020.

Without mass resistance to this totalitarian push, be prepared for more and more restrictions on every aspect of life; including movement, travel, thought, communication, health decisions,’ medical care,’ money and spending, carbon tracking, total and complete surveillance, social credit systems, and renewed climate lockdowns.

Considering the U.S. government and American citizens, remember that this government and all its controlling rule system is nothing more than an organized crime syndicate; an operation based on the mass cooperation and acceptance of a nearly universal, compliant, and submissive population, intent only on getting by and being able to survive with their smart phones, TVs, games, bread and circuses, and dependence on rule. This general attitude will be the death knell of this society, but it does not have to remain as such given the huge numbers of us, and the few who claim ownership of the bulk of the pathetic inhabitants that make up the vast majority in this country.

Remember that the term ‘climate change’ is the basis of all future plans to take total control over everything, and that is and will be the weapon of fear used to round up the masses. Every time you hear the word “sustainable” and accept it as legitimate, every time the state claims to be protecting the earth to ‘save it,’ every time ‘sustainable development’ is the term used to create and enforce government policy, you have lost all, while the state has gained more power and control over you. The final agenda of fear called ‘climate change,’ is the hammer, while each of you are only a nail, but acting as one, you can hold everything together.

As I stated in an article earlier this year:

“The intentional manmade ‘climate change’ fraud is continually gaining steam, as it will always be the linchpin to future abuses and control by the rulers and their pawns in politics and mainstream media. While the controllers are destroying economies, decimating all quality food sources and production, eliminating vast amounts of life-sustaining energy, greatly harming the environment and its vital resources necessary for life, pursuing eugenics agendas, and advancing depopulation efforts, the majority of people continue to acquiesce to all orders and propaganda, while completely attached and addicted to their cell phones and their apathetic and pitiful pretend lives. All this is indicative of the downfall of humanity, and the rise of the technocratic oligarchs.”
