What Puerto Rico Teaches Us About Being Prepared


They say preppers should wear tin foil hats. However, preppers may be the only people that survives what is coming. I recently interviewed Bob Griswold of Readymaderesources.com. about surviving whaat is coming. This is a riveting interview that the readers should help go viral.

They say preppers should wear tin foil hats. However, preppers may be the only people that survives what is coming.

Please read this carefully: One hundred percent of the power is offline in Puerto Rico. If we want to know what the effects of an EMP would be, Puerto Rico is an excellent laboratory. At least in Puerto Rico there is the hope that power will be quickly restored to critical services (eg hospitals, etc.). The only reason that the people of Puerto Rico can expect to  have power restored is because they are being served by Americans who already have power. However, if an EMP attack were to take out the national grid, there would be no rescue and the effects could last as long as a generation or longer.

Paul Martin

Paul Martin has information, from a high-level, deep-cover source that private government contractors are feversihly preparing for an EMP attack, presumably from North Korea. The crews are reportedly working 14 hour days an are not even making a significant dent. Their primary mission is to harden military assets. The expectation is that if the US was struck by an EMP, an invasion, presumably from China or China/Russia would follow. As an aside, if America wants to know what it is like to be attacked and occupied, I suggest watching Amazon Prime’s, The Man in the High Castle.

I am processing the Martin interview at the end of this week and this interview will be published on both the Youtube and the website of The Common Sense Show.

Since you are not considered to be necessary to national security, your life and your resources will not be shielded from the effects of an EMP. Therefore, what can you expect happen in the event of an EMP attack? More importantly, is there anything that can be done to lessen the impact? The following paragraphs address this issue.

Where Prepping Begins

If people do not prepare to weather the coming global elite sponsored storms, then that person is preparing to become a statistic. The bare minimum that people should have in order to survive what is coming would consist of food, water, gold, guns, ammunition and medicine. However, each of these products comes with a caveat.

Recognized experts are predicting that an EMP strike that would wipe out electricity across the nation would ultimately lead to the deaths  of 90% of the population, according to Naval War College simulations. In part, the reasons for the high mortality are embedded in the following.


Anyone who uses the term “prescriptions” need to change their thinking. In a dire situation, you will not be able to stock up. You will be limited the meds you have on hand. Eaveryone on medication needs to find an alternative that is natural and that can be stockpiled.  This is why I use Health Masters (coupon code CSS5).

I have documented on several occasions how I have subsituted natural care for medical care. It works better, is affordable and you can legally horde the medications. You should already be doing this. For example, there are supplements that lower blood sugar (diabetes), however, the corresponding big pharma prescriptions are dangerous to your health and frequently cause heart attacks.

Those with chronic condition are particularily at risk and preparation should be an ongoing concern, crisis, or no crisis.


In this kind of a crisis, your paper money will be totally worthless. Those who plan to survive, need to immediately begin to accumulate precious metals. If you cannot afford to buy previous metals, then your default position should be to buy food. However, if you have more than 4 months of savings in the bank, you are being foolish. Convert this soon-to-be worthless cash to gold.

I use Steve Quayle’s Renaissance Precious Metals. Those that come out the other side of the crisis with a medium of exchange that will be univesally accepted, are going to be far better off. If you are interested in obtaining precious metals from someone I trust, call Steve Quayle (406-586-4842).


In the aftermath of Hurrican Harvey, I received this email from  a listerner to the radio show.

Dear Dave,

Thank you for the wonderful servive that you are providing for people. During the storm we were isolated, but as long as our roof was in place, we knew we’d be safe. We were prepared to survive because of the information I learned from the great guests that you have on your show.  We did not have a lot but we had enough. Keep up your great work and may God bless you and your family. 


Melissa Huggins

This is why I do this work. We cannot choose what evil plot will come our way. However, you can make a choice, like the one that Melissa did, to survive. I think Harvey, Irma, Maria and Jose should stand as a reminder that there is no substitute for survival preparation.

    I myself, and others that I know who have all worked in war zones and have also worked in Puerto Rico have all said the same thing. It is easier to get work done in a war zone than in Puerto Rico. If you can’t get it done in normal times then it will be impossible to get it done under the circumstances that Puerto Rico is under now. So they probably will have to have the military come in and have absolute control over everything done to restore civilization or the people of Puerto Rico will revert back to cannibalism.

    Hi Dave thank you for all the excellent journalism you are doing. with the Cal exit and everything that is going on I think that there should be another New Movement for people who want to be free of this government and we can call it the new America. We need to get as many patriots together as we can and stake our ground and be prepared to fight for it. If we were to fight for California what would we be receiving in return anyway for the blood that will be shed. I like the idea of having a new America home of the brave and free.

    Run water thru a garden hose stuffed with Sand, Cloth, Cotton and Charcoal from any Fire, Get Coffee Filters, Cut them into quarters and wrap double, at the end, Use a Rubber band or tape. Fill a Glass Jug. A few drips of “Iodine, Bleach, or Chlorine tablets” Allow the water to sit in a Clear Container as it sits in the Sunlight. Sunlight’s UV light will kill off Some of the Bacteria-Viruses. If you can, boil as well. Thank You Dave.. God Bless..

    I am no fan of the “hide your guns” philosophy. The entire point of gun ownership is the ability to defend yourself to your last breath. If you’re not going to use them when it is most needed, then why have them in the first place?

    Here’s the take away…NO ONE LIVES FOREVER.

    For most of us in the gun owning community, the confiscation of firearms IS THE CALL to take up arms! Trust me when I tell you that the time to defend yourself is WHILE YOU ARE STILL ABLE to do so. Hiding your guns is no different than surrendering your guns. In both cases, those guns are USELESS.

    If you are a gun owner, and you haven’t settled the matter of when it is moral and appropriate to use lethal force on another human being, then that should be your number one priority RIGHT NOW! You don’t want to have to find time in the middle of a roundup /confiscation to wrestle with your conscience when you should be taking deadly aim and immediate action.

    In conclusion…I am filled with a great sorrow for those poor souls whose task it is to forcibly take my only means of defense. It will NOT end well. I may die, but I’ll see to it that I have plenty of company on that journey.

    I heard that all those folks caught in hurricane territories were captured and taken away by Fema, never to be heard from again. This is and has been the game plan all along, I presume. How convenient they took their guns first. How convenient that cell phones have no power. Their families will never hear from them again. No way to tell where they were taken to or if they are still alive and being tortured and killed for not taking the mark of the beast, or for any other reason, such as they plan to kill 90% of the worlds’ population. It’s going to happen to every single one of us. The storms are coming and designed to kill us off. All of us.

    Now I see why we have been inundated with puertoricans lately (spelling? no insult intended). Am I close with the spelling?). The gov elite brought over all the people they need to carry on while whites are being murdered. The puertoricans, blacks and muslims, Indians, rushans, chinese,,Canadians, foreign miltry civilians, will be the working slaves until whites are gone and then they themselves get murdered in turn by ethnicity. 90% to be murdered is 90%. They, then won’t have the help of those groups murdered before them. They will be on their own and because of this they won’t make it either. Impossible.

    People of all ethnicities throughout America and the entire world, need to band together or we ALL LOSE.
    Fat chance of that happening, so guess what? Say goodbye.

    Wise azz gangs are going to lose also. We are all being USED. We are being USED to help them bring about their own agenda of owning the world without any of us. None of us will have any money. Remember the bible prophecy that says something like, where you once had $1,000.00 in your pocket, you will then have only 25 cents.

    No you can’t hide your gold. The fallen angels, who know what’s in every man’s mind, all the time, will tell the antichrist where to find your gold. All this is prophesized as well. You will be murdered if you are not dead already. Nothing is hidden from the angels, fallen angels or not fallen angels.
