We Will Have To Reboot Our Standard of Living To Survive As a Nation

In 1940 you could buy a nice cape cod style home for around $2,500. Someone entering the job market likely started out at $25 a week. A 1940 Buick with a straight 8 would run you $895 and up.

Why this stroll down memory lane? Because it is meant to show how much inflation has changed the price of things. When we still used money that was based on gold and silver, inflation was kept in check to some degree. Fractional reserve banking and excessive credit creation have distorted the value of things we depend on for life and we are coming to the end of that failed experiment. All of our recent prosperity has been paid for with our ability to print dollars out of thin air.

If you want to know where we are being led you only have to stroll down any city street where the homeless live, or you can look through the many pictures of the great depression. The American people are being systematically impoverished and it is being done knowingly by those in charge and is allowed by a dumbed down, apathetic public too busy staring at their iphone to notice.

If this nation is to survive and retain a reasonable standard of living and quality of life, we will have to downsize to a level that we can actually afford. We will need to forego the 2,000 sq. ft. $300,000 homes we all like so much and settle for a more affordable 900 sq. ft. $30,000 home we can actually pay for. We will have to give up the $40,000 autos coming out of Detroit now and settle for a smaller inexpensive model that can actually get 60 mpg.

We will also need to return to a financial system that is based on real value. This being gold and silver money. If we try to use anything else we are simply trying to fool ourselves. You cannot use a currency that does not act as a store of wealth over the long term.

We can do this by choice and salvage what is left of our country or we can continue on the current path and end up an impoverished country with a dictator in charge like most other failed nations in the world.

If we want to continue having a country worth living in we need to go back to what we know works and try to build up from there. We no longer have sufficient manufacturing capacity to employ all of the people in this country and any kind of welfare will not work without debasing the currency.

This will necessitate 20% of the population going back to living on small farms to insure they have a job and sufficient resources to care for their families. Nothing else in our current situation will work. We have too many unemployed people living off of the state and this will end soon. We will either have a mass exodus from the country or a mass extinction within it. As unpleasant as it sounds that is our future if we do not make substantial changes while we still have time. That time is nearly up.

Downsizing our lives and our wants will be a necessary change if we want to salvage something of our future. We have lived too long in fantasy land and now we must come back to reality. The west line has moved and we will never get back all of the production jobs we once had. We must accept that and accept that our country will be less productive and less prosperous in the future and learn to live within our means.

Coronavirus Spreading Faster Than Anticipated: How Much Risk Do We Face And What Precautions Should We Make?

The real question for us is: how seriously should you and I be taking this? Is this potentially as bad as the Ebola pandemic of 2014? How much risk do we face and what precautions should we make?

Let’s Get This Straight

When we hear the word “pandemic” we tend to think of things like the Black Plague, the worst in history, which killed off 60 percent of the European population in the 14th century. But by definition, a pandemic is a “regional” epidemic. In other words, it’s an epidemic that hits several neighboring countries in the same region of the world.

Perhaps it’s time for that definition to change. With modern air travel being so prevalent, any epidemic can easily spread to other countries; and it’s not limited to spreading to neighboring countries either. As we’ve seen in this case, pandemics can quickly make it around the world, carried by those who have been infected. They, in turn, become the disease’s instrument to infect others.

In a sense, we live with pandemics every year, although they are not commonly referred to as such. The flu, which goes around and around the world, fulfills the definition of a pandemic. However, it’s not normally referred to as such, simply because of the low percentage of victims who die of it.

But what About the Coronavirus?

It’s not widely known, but according to the CDC website[1], the flu accounts for anywhere between 12,000 to 61,000 deaths per year. Most of the time, those deaths are caused by a combination of the flu and some other disease; either a pre-existing respiratory problem or contracting pneumonia due to the flu. If one has renal problems or is dehydrated and contracts the flu, the chance of dehydration is increased, with the potential of leading to death. The elderly, who often have already weakened immune systems, and the very young seem to be the most susceptible to dying from the flu.

But the percentage of people who die from the flu is actually extremely low. With a potential of 60.8 million cases of flu per year, even the highest death toll recorded by CDC is only one-tenth of one percent of total cases. I’m not being cavalier about that; but one-tenth of one percent is much better than 2.8 percent, which is the current statistic for the coronavirus or 80 percent, which is typical for Ebola.

Like influenza, coronavirus isn’t one single virus, but a family of seven (there are four major strains of flu). A couple of these strains, SARS and MERS are rather serious, much more serious than what’s being experienced in China. Yet, even the more benign version that is spreading today is taking victims.

So far, all of the victims of this epidemic are located in Wuhan, China. They have all been old men. So it’s likely that they had some other underlying condition, which made them especially vulnerable to the disease. It is also likely that it was a combination of that condition and the virus which ended up killing them, not just the coronavirus alone.

Treating Coronavirus

We won’t know the full risk of the current coronavirus outbreak until CDC is able to quantify it and determine its parameters. As of yet, we have very little information about it, let alone about how to kill the virus. Although I have heard rumors of a vaccine, it is way too early to tell if it will work or if it will infect the very same people it is intended to protect.

One thing that most people don’t realize, is that unlike bacterial infections, which can be treated with antibiotics, there are no antiviral drugs that doctors can prescribe. Medical science has had zero success in developing drugs that will combat viral infections.

Part of the reason for this is that there are so many different viruses out there. In addition to that, those are so simple that they mutate easily. In fact, a large part of the reason that viral epidemics burn out is because the viruses mutate through successive generations, reducing their potency to the point where they no longer kill those they infect. But that ability to mutate also makes it hard to develop antiviral drugs that work.

That’s why vaccines are so important. Vaccines are essentially a less virulent form of the virus. As such, they don’t cause the full effects of the disease. Instead, they trigger the body’s immune system, causing it to develop antibodies that kill the virus. Then, if the individual is exposed to the virus, their body’s immune system is already prepared to combat it, protecting them.

Surviving a Pandemic

It is unknown, as of yet, whether the one victim of the coronavirus here in the United States infected anyone else with the virus, before seeing his doctor. It is quite possible that there were several days between the time he returned home and the time that symptoms began. If that’s the case, he could have come into contact with a wide range of people, some of whom could have become infected as well.

I’m sure that the appropriate medical professionals in Washington state are working hard to identify everywhere that the victim went and everyone he came into contact with. Those people will all be screened for the coronavirus, just like people returning to the US from China are. But all it would take is for them to miss one infected person, and the disease could begin spreading through the population. How fast it might spread and how many people might become infected is anyone’s guess at this time.

Should this reach epidemic proportions here in the USA, we will need to take precautions to protect ourselves. If enough people do that, the disease will burn out. But just what sorts of precautions do we need to take?

All viral infections travel from animals to people or from people to people. Variants of the flu, like the swine flu and the bird flu, are named the way they are, because the virus first infected people by passing from those animals to people. But then the virus started passing from one person to the next. This has been shown to be happening with the coronavirus.

But just how does it do that?

Viruses, and other disease-causing pathogens, normally travel from person to person through bodily fluids. The most dangerous of these is called “aerosol” often mistaken for airborne. Truly airborne viruses can travel from one person to the next simply by breathing. Recent studies of the flu virus indicate that it might travel in this manner. Previously, it was thought to only travel through aerosol. That’s bad enough.

Aerosol refers to tiny droplets of saliva and mucus which leave the body when one coughs or sneezes. These can travel several feet and be breathed in by other people. They can also deposit on common surfaces, where others can get them on their hands. The virus then enters the body through the eyes or mouth, when the person rubs their eyes or eats with their hands.

As part of our natural defenses against sickness, our skin does an amazingly good job of keeping out viruses and other microscopic pathogens. The only way they can get through the skin is through a natural opening, like those I just mentioned or through a cut or contusion in the skin.

Once inside, the viruses multiply, until they reach the point where they cause illness to appear in the person’s body.

Isolation

The easiest way to avoid infection is to avoid contact with other people. In Tom Clancy’s book, “Executive Orders,” the President institutes a nationwide quarantine and closing of all public places of congregation, to stop a case of bio-warfare, where the Ebola virus had been released on the public. The fear generated by that order reduced human interaction to the point where the epidemic died out.

While it might be impractical to cut off interaction with others altogether, a serious enough epidemic could make that necessary. Had the people of Europe known about the spread of disease and instituted such a quarantine, the Black Death wouldn’t have claimed so many victims.

Even without a quarantine, it is possible to greatly reduce the risk of infection by the simple expedient of reducing contact with other people. If you are isolated from others, they can’t spread disease to you. The risk associated with contact you must have can be mitigated by keeping enough distance between them and yourself, so that virus particles cannot travel from them to you via aerosol.

Low-Risk Protection

If you do have to have contact with others in the midst of an epidemic, it only makes sense to take some basic precautions. Here we can learn from the medical community and what they do. The basic precautions they take are enough to protect them from almost any virus or bacteria.

What precautions am I talking about? Wearing medical masks to protect the nose and mouth from aerosol, rubber gloves on their hands and in some cases, going so far as to wear goggles, to protect the eyes from the aerosol as well. They do this whenever they are with patients who are infected or who have a disease. Then when they leave those patients, they remove their gloves and wash their hands.

High-Risk Protection

For really severe diseases, like Ebola or Lass Fever, the medical community will step their precautions up a bit, wearing airtight suits that keep everything out. The standard is the Racal suit, which comes with a helmet and an air handling system that cleans the air coming into the suit.

Unfortunately, the Racal suit is expensive, more than a thousand dollars. But we can make an effective substitute out of much lower cost items. People doing hazard materials cleanup wear a Tyvek suit, which is a fibrous plastic, hoods, and booties to go over the shoes that exist as well. One of these suits, with rubber gloves and a hood, will cover most of your body, especially if you tape the sleeve and pant cuffs to the gloves and booties. It’s also a good idea to put on a second pair of gloves so that they can be removed if they become contaminated, without having to expose the hands to the air. For the face, wear a gas mask, which will filter out the air, while protecting the openings in your skin.

When wearing a suit of this sort for protection, you have to assume that the suit will become contaminated. Therefore, you need a decontamination area outside your home, like on the back patio. Before taking the suit off, the suit would need to be sprayed down with an antiseptic solution, then rinsed. Then it could be taken off and the individual could safely enter the house.

If you want to go one step farther for extreme protection, build an airlock out of sheet plastic, just inside the door. Place ultraviolet lights in this airlock, in such a way that the light will cover the entire body of someone standing in there. Ultraviolet is uniformly fatal to viruses, so standing in there for a minute, ensuring that the light hits every part of the body, is a good second stage of decontamination. The problem is, we’re dealing with things that are too small to see. You and your clothes or your Tyvek suit can look perfectly clean, but be covered with bacteria or viruses. Since we have no safe way of telling if they are there, we must assume the worst and decontaminate thoroughly. That’s the only way to be sure and be safe

If The Day Comes When The SHTF, We’ll be in Big Trouble – The Vast Majority Of The Population Is Unprepared For Any Serious National Crisis

turn_left

With the recent release of reports from government agencies that warn of potential risk from long term grid failure, it is only prudent to evaluate your readiness for potential problems in our future. Catastrophic events have a habit of showing up unannounced.

When the population is capable of caring for itself following an event, it frees up government assets to devote to fixing the problem rather than taking care of the population. As we have seen in the past, even in the best cases, government assets cannot provide everything the population wants following an event. They can only provide the most basic needs and this decreases in proportion to the number of people that require assistance.

When something happens and you have resources to provide for your needs, you automatically have more options at your disposal to work your way through the problems. This provides you with the freedom to act in your own best interests and not be a pawn to others. Those that are dependant on others for their needs are at the mercy of those providing those necessities.

The recent NIAC report expresses a need for community enclaves where people can hunker down while the problems are being fixed. These enclaves would encompass things such as schools, hospitals and other community assets that are necessary to continue providing necessities to the community. Enclaves that can provide medical needs, water, sewer services, communications and security are just some of the things that can allow a population to weather an event with the least amount of discomfort.

The ability of community enclaves to care for the local population allows the government to deploy available assets to fix the problem rather than provide for the daily needs of the population. This can greatly enhance the ability to fix the problems in a timely manner without the disruptions that can occur when the population is demanding resources that the government may not have. Community self care is one of the basic functions that civil defense units were once tasked with. The loss of a national civil defense program has left the nation vulnerable at the local level and has security implications for the whole nation. The community enclave idea harkens back to the civil defense era of preparedness.

In the event of a nation wide event, the federal government has no way to care for the nation as a whole. The resources are simply not there, at least not at the national or state level. The resources stored by the government are based on a disaster of small scale and limited duration. The government also depends on the ability to pull resources from the private sector in an emergency. An event that disrupts transportation systems would also prevent distribution of the resources that are available at storage locations.

Communities have the ability to store the necessary resources on an individual basis that can allow the nation to recover. Individuals that store supplies help to spread out the cost of resources and provide redundancy and durability to the supply chain. A government warehouse that is destroyed or looted will provide no help to the many who are counting on it but the loss of a few individual storage units can be absorbed on the whole.

The shift from a local civil defense posture to a government operated system has left the population vulnerable to events that could otherwise have far less consequences for the population if they maintained the resources to deal with it locally on an individual basis. The community enclave allows the local group to benefit from the technical expertise of individuals such as doctors, law enforcement, firemen, electricians and plumbers to provide the essential services that the whole group needs while individuals provide the basic supplies their families need.

The ability of communities to remain stable during an event makes the nation as a whole much stronger and less likely to fall into chaos should other events emerge that can compound the situation. There are those in the world that are always eager to use any situation to prey on society for their own benefit. This can be individuals, groups or even nation states seeking expansion and resources.

We have the resources available at this time to prepare for future unknowns but it is up to each individual to make these preparations. Once an event unfolds it is too late to acquire what you need in any quantity. What you have when it unfolds is what you will have to work with for the duration. At this time the vast majority of the population is unprepared for any serious national crisis and without a refocus of our efforts to individual preparations, the nation as a whole will suffer and depending on the event, may not survive.

 

 

 

New Technology for a Cashless Society Is Marching Right in Step With Other Moves Toward the Coming Antichrist World Government

Imagine what the apostle John must have thought when, in about 95 AD, he saw a vision of this taking place in a futuristic world. People ever since have been baffled as to how any such universal, totalitarian economic system could be established or policed.

Tied into the ability to control all buying and selling will be the complete monitoring of everything related to you. For centuries, the fulfillment of these verses in Revelation 13:16-18 was a mystery.

New technology for a cashless society is marching right in step with other moves toward the coming Antichrist world government.

The technological ability to operate a world-wide cashless economic system is now being worked on. Marching in step with this new technology is a propaganda war to eliminate cash to transform the world into a cashless society.

Let’s take a look at some of the new technology that is preparing the world for the coming 666 mark of the beast financial system.

Does Google Want To Put A Chip In Our Brains?

Google engineering director Scott Huffman says that within five years people will have microphones attached to their ceilings and microchips embedded in their brains in order to perform quicker internet searches; the goal is to insert a chip inside your head for the most effortless search engine imaginable.

According to a survey by tech giant Cisco Systems, about a fourth of professionals ages

18 to 50 would leap at the chance to get a surgical brain implant that allowed them to Instantly link their thoughts to the Internet.

A chip in the brain? Didn’t we see the potential for this new technology in book of Revelation 13:16-18?

PayPal wants to implant passwords in your stomach and your brain! Jonathan LeBlanc, PayPal’s global head of developer evangelism, claims that these devices could include brain implants, wafer-thin silicon chips that can be embedded into the skin, and ingestible devices with batteries that are powered by stomach acid.

The reasons given are that the many passwords to use Paypal are very weak so people can be robbed by professional hackers. So in the future if you want to use Paypal you will need to comply with Paypal’s new identity system whatever final technology that will be.

Another example is that, the BBC published a piece entitled “Why I Want A Microchip Implant”. We are told that such implants could solve a whole host of societal problems. Identity theft and credit card fraud would be nearly eliminated, many other forms of crime would be significantly reduced, children would never go missing and we wouldn’t have to remember a vast array of passwords and PIN numbers like we do now. We are told that if we just adopted such technology that our lives would be so much better.

They are pumping millions of dollars into researching “cutting edge” technologies that will enable implantable microchips to greatly “enhance” our health and our lives. Of course nobody is going to force you to have a microchip implanted into your brain. Initially, brain implants will be marketed as “revolutionary breakthroughs” that can cure chronic diseases and that can enable the disabled to live normal lives.

For example, Human trials for bionic eye with ‘wireless brain chip’ are to begin this year!

When the “benefits” of such technology are demonstrated to the general public, soon most people will want to become “super-abled”. Just imagine the hype that will surround these implants when people discover that you can get rid of your extra weight in a matter of days or that you can download an entire college course into your memory in just a matter of hours.

Learning a martial art, how to fly a plane or how to speak a new language without even being awake is set to become a reality, say researchers.

The possibilities for this kind of technology are endless, and it is just a matter of time before having microchips implanted into your brain is considered to be quite common.

RFID microchip implants and other forms of “wearable technology” are increasingly being viewed as “cool”, “trendy” and “cutting edge” by young people that wish to “enhance” themselves. And of course the mainstream media is all in favor of these “technological advancements”.

Employees at the Epicenter building complex in Stockholm, Sweden have a new option when it comes to entering the building. Instead of swiping the usual plastic keycard, they can wave their hand in front of a sensor. How, you may ask, does this magically open doors? There’s nothing magic about it: Office workers have radio frequency identification (RFID) chips embedded in the skin between their thumb and index finger, courtesy of BioNyfiken a Swedish bio hacking group. A reporter asked a young girl why she took the chip implant, & she replied its 2015, & this is the future!

In fact, the 10 to 20-year outlook is so radical, that it seems science fiction-like. For example, NBC & CNN forecasted that many Americans will get “chipped” by the year 2017. Right now, the majority of implanted chips people have are for restoring hearing, and in some cases treating mental disease, such as epilepsy. But bio hackers are increasingly implanting RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chips into themselves. Even X Prize Chairman and Singularity University co-founder Peter Diamandis did this on stage recently during a speech.

All of this may sound very “cool” to a lot of people.

But what happens if we are all required to have “a Microchip in our right hand or forehead” someday?

What happens if an oppressive world government uses this technology to watch, track, monitor and control all of us 24 hours a day with this new technology?

What happens if you are not able to get a job, have a bank account or buy anything without “proper identification” via a chip implant?

I think that you can see where I am going with this.

Technology is truly a double-edged sword. It can do great good, but it can also be used for great evil.

The Bible predicted such an economic buy & sell world system nearly 2000 years ago! We can see by the new technologies that are here & other technology that is being worked on, this 666 system could be online in the near future? Here’s the warning to us in Revelation 14:9-12 to not take the mark of the beast in the forehead or in the hand!

REV.14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast (Antichrist) and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

REV.14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

REV.14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

REV.14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

So watch out for 666 & the computer chip it will cost you your soul!

Some of the above may astonish you, but it’s God’s truth as revealed in the Bible. Countless Biblical prophecies have already been accurately and specifically fulfilled, so you can be sure that these predictions of the future will be as well! You can prepare for the exciting days ahead by receiving Jesus into your heart. Simply pray,

Dear Jesus, please come into my heart and forgive me for all the wrongs I have done. Help me to trust in You, to learn more about You and how to share Your love and peace with others.

 

Nuclear War, First Responders Will Have To Wait For The Deadly Fallout To Decay Before They Enter A Hot Zone So The More You Prepare, The Better Your Odds Of Surviving A Nuclear Crisis

hds4ui6tab121

No one wants to think about a nuclear crisis – and hopefully it will never happen – but we all must accept the fact nuclear tensions are rising globally with North Korea (and others are seeking nukes) so we should prepare ourselves and our loved ones in the event the unthinkable strikes our soil.

For decades, movies and some in the media have portrayed a nuclear attack as a “doomsday” event implying most people would be killed on impact … and survivors would want to die once they come out of their shelters.

In reality, unless you are actually at ground zero or within a several mile radius of the blast zone (depending on the size of the nuke, of course), there is a very high probability you’ll survive as long as you…

  • limit your exposure to radiation and fallout,
  • take shelter with proper shielding, and
  • wait for the most dangerous radioactive materials to decay.

In other words, you CAN survive a nuke attack … but you MUST make an effort to learn what to do! By learning about potential threats, we are all better prepared to know how to react if something happens.

Please realize this is being written with small nuke devices in mind (like a 1-kiloton to 1-megaton device). A larger device, ICBM or a nuclear war would cause more wide-spread damage but some of this data could still be helpful. These are some very basic tips on sheltering for any type of nuclear (or radiological) incident.

What happens when a nuke explodes?

A nuclear blast produces a blinding light, intense heat (called thermal radiation), initial nuclear radiation, 2 explosive shock waves (blasts), mass fires, and radioactive fallout (residual nuclear radiation).

The below graphic shows the destruction of a test home by an atomic blast on March 17, 1953 at the Nevada Proving Ground. The structure was located 3,500 feet from ground zero, and the time from the first to last picture was 2.3 seconds.  It shows the force of the blast wave then the radiating energy set it on fire.

Also, if a nuke is launched over our continent and explodes miles above the earth, it could create an electromagnetic pulse (EMP). An EMP is a split-second silent energy burst (like a stroke of lightning) that can fry electronics connected to wires or antennas like cell phones, cars, computers, TVs, etc. Unless electronics are grounded or hardened, an area or nation could experience anything from minor interference to crippled power, transportation, banking and communications systems.

An EMP from a high-altitude nuke (where a nation or group succeeds in detonating a nuclear device carried miles into the atmosphere) could affect electronics within 1,000 miles or more as shown below. (Evidence suggests some countries and groups are working on enhanced and non-nuclear EMP weapons or e-bombs.)

high altitude emp or electromagnetic pulse threat

What is the most dangerous part of a nuclear attack?

Both the initial nuclear radiation and residual nuclear radiation (also called radioactive fallout) are extremely dangerous.

Initial nuclear radiation is penetrating invisible rays that can be lethal in high levels.

Radioactive fallout (residual nuclear radiation) is created when the fireball vaporizes everything inside it (including dirt and water). Vaporized materials mix with radioactive materials in the updraft of air forming a mushroom cloud.

Fallout can be carried by winds for hundreds of miles and begin falling to the ground within minutes of the blast or take hours, days, weeks or even months to fall. The heaviest fallout would hit ground zero and areas downwind of that, and 80% of fallout would occur within 24 hours. Most fallout looks like grey sand or gritty ash and the radiation given off cannotbe seen, smelled, tasted or felt which is why it is so dangerous. But as the materials decay or spread out radiation levels will drop.

More about radiation

Types of radiation – Nuclear radiation has 3 main types of radiation…

  • alpha – can be shielded by a sheet of paper or by human skin. If alpha particles are inhaled, ingested, or enter body through a cut, they can cause damage to tissues and cells.
  • beta – can be stopped by skin or a thicker shield (like wood). Beta particles can cause serious damage to internal organs if ingested or inhaled, and could cause eye damage or possible skin burns.
  • gamma – most dangerous since gamma rays can penetrate the entire body and cause cell damage throughout your organs, blood and bones. Since radiation does not stimulate nerve cells you may not feel anything while your body absorbs it. Exposure to high levels of gamma rays can lead to radiation sickness or death, which is why it is critical to seek shelter from fallout in a facility with thick shielding!

Radiation detection devices – You cannot see, smell, taste or feel radiation, but special instruments can detect even the smallest levels of radiation. Since it may take days or weeks before First Responders could get to you, consider having these devices handy during a crisis or attack since they could save your life.

Measuring radiation – Radiation was measured in units called roentgens (pronounced “rent-gens” and abbreviated as “R”) … or “rads” or “rem”. An EPA document called “Planning Guidance for Response to A Nuclear Detonation 2nd Edition June 2010” explains … 1 R (exposure in air) ≅ 1 rad (absorbed dose) ≅ 1 rem (whole-body dose). Although many measuring devices and older documentation use R and rem, officials and the media now use sievert (Sv) which is the System International or SI unit of measurement of radiation. The formula to convert sieverts to rems is quite simple … 1 Sv = 100 R (rem).

How many rads are bad? – High doses of radiation in a short span of time can cause radiation sickness or even death, but if that high dose is spread out over a long period of time, it’s not as bad.

According to FEMA, an adult could tolerate and recover from an exposure to 150R (1.5 Sv) over a week or 300R (3 Sv) over a 4-month period. But 300R (3 Sv) over a week could cause sickness or possibly death. Exposure to 30R (0.3 Sv) to 70R (0.7 Sv) over a week may cause minor sickness, but a full recovery would be expected. But radioactive fallout decays rapidly so staying in a shelter with proper shielding is critical!

The “seven-ten” rule – For every sevenfold increase in time after the initial blast, there is a tenfold decrease in the radiation rate. For example, a 500 rad level can drop to 50R in just 7 hours and down to 5R after 2 days (49 hours). In other words, if you have shelter with good shielding and stay put for even just 7 hours … you’ve really increased your chances of survival. Your detection devices, emergency radio or cell phone [if the last 2 are working, that is] can assist you in knowing when it’s safe to come out.

So how do I protect myself and my family?

Basic shelter requirements – Whether you build a shelter in advance or throw together an expedient last-minute shelter during a crisis, the area should protect you from radiation and support you for at least 2 weeks. Some basic requirements for a fallout shelter include …

  • shielding
  • ventilation
  • water and food
  • sanitation and first aid products
  • radiation monitoring devices, KI (potassium iodide), radio, weapons, tools, etc

Reduce exposure – Protect yourself from radioactive fallout with …

  • distance – the more distance between you and fallout particles, the better
  • shielding – heavy, dense materials (like thick walls, earth, concrete, bricks, water and books) between you and fallout is best. Stay indoors or below ground. (Taking shelter in a basement or a facility below ground reduces exposure by 90%. Less than 4 inches of soil or earth can reduce the penetration of dangerous gamma rays by half.)
  • time – most fallout loses its strength quickly. The more time that passes after the attack, the lower the danger.

Indoor shelter locations – If you don’t have a fallout shelter, these options could provide protection from dangerous radiation by using proper shielding materials.

  • basement – find the corner that is most below ground level (the further underground the better)
  • 1-story home / condo / apartment – if no underground facility, find a spot in center of home away from windows
  • trailer home – find sturdier shelter if possible (like a basement or brick or concrete building)
  • multi-story building or high-rise – go to center of the middle section of building (above 9th floor if possible). Note: if rooftop of a building next to you is on that same floor, move one floor up or down since radioactive fallout would accumulate on rooftops. Avoid first floor (if possible) since fallout will pile up on ground outside.

Shielding materials – All fallout shelters must provide good protection from radioactive particles. FEMA suggests having a minimum of several inches of concrete or 1 to 2 feet of earth as shielding around your shelter, if possible, and the more the better. Per FEMA, the following shows examples of shielding materials that equal the protection of 4 inches (10 cm) of concrete …

  • 5 – 6 inches (12 – 15 cm) of bricks
  • 6 inches (15 cm) of sand or gravel
  • 7 inches (18 cm) of earth
  • 8 inches (20 cm) of hollow concrete block
  • 10 inches (25 cm) of water
  • 14 inches (35 cm) of books or magazines
  • 18 inches (46 cm) of wood

Make an expedient shelter – Some very basic ways to build an expedient last-minute shelter in your home, apartment or workplace to help protect you from dangerous radiation include…

  • Set up a large, sturdy workbench or table in location you’ve chosen. If no table, make one by putting doors on top of boxes, appliances or furniture.
  • Put as much shielding (e.g. furniture, file cabinets, appliances, boxes or pillowcases filled with dirt or sand, boxes of food, water or books, concrete blocks, bricks, etc.) all around sides and on top of table, but don’t put too much weight on tabletop or it could collapse. Add reinforcing supports, if needed.
  • Leave a crawl space so everyone can get inside and block opening with shielding materials.
  • Leave 2 small air spaces for ventilation (about 4-6″ each) – one low at one end and one high at other end. (This allows for better airflow since warm air rises.)
  • Have water, radiation detection devices, KI, battery operated radio, food and sanitation supplies in case you have to shelter in place for days or weeks.

build an expedient shelter for protection from radioactive fallout

In summary, those within the blast zone of Ground Zero (depending on the size of the nuke) won’t make it .. BUT .. if you are a few miles outside the zone your chances of surviving it are high but you MUST have detection devices to monitor levels of radiation and a plan to stay sheltered for at least 48 hours or up to a few weeks. First Responders will have to wait for the deadly fallout to decay before they enter a hot zone so the more you prepare, the better your odds of surviving a terrorist nuke.

 

 

 

 

A Pandemic That Scares The General Population Into Submission Can Act As Cover For Many Different Events. This is the future of gun control in America?

SLEONE-HEALTH-EBOLA-WAFRICA

If a pandemic were to get lose in the nation most people would look to government for answers and help but there are those that would stay as far away from the government as possible. These are the self sufficient people that government fears the most. They have the supplies and knowledge to stay alive when most others won’t and that is reason enough for the government to get them out of the way. They are potential impediments to total government control. So what might the feds do to eliminate this potential threat to their power?

The first thing needed is to identify these people and assess their potential threat to the government. That has been ongoing for several years now with doctors asking about firearms ownership and new regulations to get child protective services into homes to insure the safety of the children.

The second thing is to verify the location of the individuals home. After all, you cannot do anything to someone unless you can find them. This was done in part during the last census when workers recorded the GPS coordinates to individuals homes and it is said that the postal service now scans the front and back of letters to capture the addresses on them not only to tag your address but to see the location and identity of those you are in communication with.

Once you have the enemy identified you want to destroy, neutralize or suppress their abilities to work against you. This can be done in many ways. The ostracizing of the prepper community and the listing of preppers, veterans and Christians as domestic threats by fusion centers has forced these people to try to keep a low profile while they prepare for future events.

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…

The final phase is to remove these people from society completely. That is where we are now. There must be some coordinated way to separate these people from their supplies and their support networks.

With a pandemic the government has the excuse to conduct wellness checks on individuals to assess their condition. This will be done under the cover of containing the virus. The reality is that once it goes nationwide, the virus cannot be contained and these wellness checks can be used to remove those that the government wants out of the way. After all, what citizen would complain about the government removing someone that can infect the community. If the government has to get violent, no one will say anything so it is a good time to remove people for other reasons as well.

The health officials will force entry into homes to check individuals and when someone with firearms and ample supplies is found they can be labeled as infected and removed to camps with the sick. In the beginning those that know what is going on will resist and probably shoot at government workers that try to break through self imposed quarantine zones around their homes. This will lead to workers being escorted by armed security that will be able to assault homes and force entry. This is the future of gun control in America. It is the only way they could hope to accomplish it.

After these well individuals are placed in sick camps they will suffer one of three fates. They will either contract the disease and die, contract the disease and survive or not get sick at all. Those that survive will likely be kept at the camp to care for the sick that continue to come in. A pandemic would require tens of thousands of workers to tend to the sick and there are not enough to do that at this time so this is a likely answer. These healthy people would become forced labor for the government. If you do not think this is a possibility you need to read some of the executive orders now in effect. The government can conscript anyone during an emergency and use them as forced labor for free. These free laborers are expendable while trained medical personnel are not.

If the government wishes to maintain some type of healthcare system in the nation they will likely divert infected persons away from hospitals so that those locations can maintain operations. It would be necessary to maintain operational hospitals for the government workers and those that serve them. If hospitals were overrun with plague victims it would decimate the medical staff and completely collapse the medical system. The medical workers that did not die would stop showing up to work in many cases as an act of self preservation. Doctors and nurses are highly trained people and you cannot replace them easily.

Those forced laborers that are left after the pandemic is over can be utilized or eliminated as the government wants and is a good way to get trouble makers out of the way. This may not be the plan but it makes some sense. Its what I might do if I were in charge and had a certain agenda in mind.

A pandemic that scares the general population into submission can act as cover for many different events. It can be cover for the economic collapse that will surely arrive one day, it can be used as a money maker for pharmaceutical companies, it can be used to consolidate power by the government or it could be used to reduce the population which is the stated goal of some in society.

This article is meant to make you ask questions, not to frighten you so here are some things to think about in the days to come. Why did Crucell develop an Ebola vaccine in 2006 and now hides the fact? Why is GSK rushing another potential vaccine into production that will likely be mandatory for the general population? Why does FEMA have contracts with foreign governments like Russia to provide manpower in the event of a disaster in America? Why do we have executive orders that can turn the population into virtual slave labor even in times of peace? Why does the CDC have thousands of coffins on hand? Why do we have UN vehicles being prepositioned around the country? Why have local police been militarized? Why are preppers, veterans and Christians being demonized by the government? Why does the FED continue to destroy the dollar knowing what it will do to the country? Why is our southern border left open? Why is the government reluctant to stop people from infected areas from coming into the U.S.?

This outbreak may fizzle out and become nothing but if this black swan lands, it could be a world changing event. If the government does come for you one day, the only thing you can do is not be there when they arrive. At this time there are more questions than answers and some of the answers are not very comforting. One thing that is certain is that we are living in interesting times. Only time will tell how this will end.

The Growing Use Of Technology Is Becoming Very Unhealthy And Making People Look And Behave “Like Zombies”

FlzbRaX8bIanutQc2YvpD2viSHMS

How often have you seen this?

Head down – in their smartphone – texting – while walking – while crossing the street – or driving their car – or at the dinner table – or in a meeting – or in the bathroom… or, like, all the time?

An apparent human Zombie.

They’ve been walking around the streets for quite some time.
A human subspecies of Zombies…
Something I read awhile ago went something like this:
You’ve seen these poor, lifeless beings everywhere. People with pallid, emotionless faces, staring down at small screens while they walk direction-less down the street, completely unaware of their surroundings.

Yet these poor souls actually believe they are more “connected” to the outside world and more people than ever.

Sometimes they return to real life and have real interactions with living human beings, but then this horrible urge kicks in which compels them to pull out their iPhone or Android device. Their PRECIOUS.

They’ll pull it out in the middle of a business meeting while someone else is talking. They’ll fiddle with it in the bathroom stall at work (or, good heavens, take calls on it and seal deals while on the can).

They’ll start tapping on the screen in the middle of dinner with family. They’ll mess with it while watching TV. And even after satisfying the most basic of human requirements, it still won’t go away. “Oh was it good for you, honey? Great, you nap, I’m gonna check my facebook…”

If they can think of any inappropriate, awkward time to stare at their little screen and tap on their little itty, bitty keys, they will. Because their PRECIOUS compels them.

And the longer they have their favorite toy turned off or not being used, the greater the urge is to pull it out and use it, as if it has some spell cast on them. They must Tweet. They must Instagram.

They must Status Update. They must Check In. They must Text. They must check email. They must continue that Candy Crush game app.
They must… MUST! EVERY. SINGLE. MINUTE.

They’ve become the 21st-century equivalent of Smeagol. Once, they were human beings. But now they’re Smartphone Zombies. They may think they’re connected to more and more people and information than ever, but for these poor creatures, life is just an illusion.
Shut if off for awhile. Take some time to discover the REAL WORLD.

One wonders what these Zombies would do if they were in a location without connectivity? (I’ve seen it – it’s not pretty).

One wonders what these Zombies would do if the power or internet went out for more than just a few hours!

Sadly, the growing use of technology is becoming very unhealthy. People are not getting the sleep they need and have a higher possibility to suffer from mental illnesses because of this technology addiction. The company found that teens that spend about five hours a day on electronic devices are fifty one percent more likely to get under seven hours of sleep. In addition, most teenagers who spend five hours a day on electronic devices are seventy one percent more likely to to have suicide risk factors. It’s very clear that even though electronics can be useful for many things, they are no good for any person’s mental health.

All in all, this smartphone addiction is increasing and becoming more dangerous as the years passed. Technology is doing a lot of harm and changing the way people act. We no longer pay attention to what’s around and spend all of our time looking down at our phones. Instead of being social and talking to people, we prefer to be social behind a screen. They’re making people look and behave “like zombies.”
