Preparing to Survive
When nations, rather bankers, chart a course for war, it is time for all of us to move away from activism as our primary focus and turn to adaptation and survival.
When we prayed and worked to get Donald Trump elected, I did not anticipate that the Deep State would actually be willing to commit planetary suicide this early into the game. However, this is exactly what the globalists are willing to do. If you and your family are to survive, you need to change your thinking right now. As of this moment, you should be in survival mode. Perhaps this present crisis will fade, but for now, it could prove fatal to not be thinking in these terms.
I am often asked, “Dave, what are you doing to get ready?”
There is no such thing as being ready. What one should be doing at this point is increasing their odds of survival. Below are some general things that I think are important. Of course, many of you will be thinking of things not listed here. Feel free to post your ideas in the comment section.
It should be known that I turn down far more advertising offers than I accept on The Common Sense Show. The simple reason is that I want our site to be as much service to our audience as possible. Therefore, when appropriate, I will be sharing some of the vendors that facillitate surival in a hostile environment as I discuss the principles of survival.
Increasing the Odds
1. Create a Fake-Identity
It may be necessary to become invisible in the event you think you believe that your name could be on a (Red) list because roundups will usually occur in dire situations. Therefore, the creation of a pseudo-identity could become very important.
2. It Takes Money to Prepare
I have committed much effort, time and resources illustrating how a coming economic collapse is unavoidable and how the elite have conspired to steal as many of your assets as possible prior to the collapse. There are some common sense things one can do which could increase the chances of surviving a major societal meltdown resulting from an economic collapse. If you have any doubts as to what is coming, I strongly encourage you to read what I have written about on this topic over the past several months. Ray Charles could see that our economy will not be around much longer in its present form. Your can read these stories here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.
If you have read the articles at the above links, you should have concluded that it is the height of stupidity to leave your life savings in an institution that is planning to steal from you. You need to divert your cash, other than the ability to pay basic bills, in preparation for what is coming.
Getting your money out of the bank has become an art form and you need to be careful. In a future article, I will be revealing steps you can take in order secure your money from the institutions that are presently holding you hostage. I cannot promise you that you will be able to retrieve all of your assets. However, I can promise you that if you do not act, you will lose everything and you will lack needed supplies to weather what is coming.
I would strongly suggest that you keep your gas tank filled and you have plenty of cash, food and ammunition on hand. It is better to be safe than sorry.
3. Making a List and Check It Twice
Buy a good prepper book. Holly Deyo is an excellent source for this information (www.standdeyo.com). In the interim, procure your food, water, guns, ammo and home security adjustments. If you do not have a big dog, consider obtaining a pair. These animals will be your companion, home security system and ally if someone attempts to breach your home with bad intent. Of course, you will have to store dog food as well.
Sit down and construct a list of what you will make a complete list after reading a good prepper book.
Make all of your purchases in cash! You do not want to let the wrong people know what you are up to.
4. Rural Vs. Urban
James Wesley Rawles says that to be safe, you must be 200 miles away from a major urban area. We have to live our lives for today and it may not be possible to move to a rural area because of your job. However, one survivalist that I was speaking with estimates that the rate of survival for a country in economic chaos would be 10 times higher for rural residents as opposed to urban residents. This is particularily true if your country is being invaded (eg Red Dawn). Consider buying a place in an isolated area and commuting to work in the interim.
5. Preparing to Thrive After the Crisis Fades- Buy Gold and Silver While You Can Afford It
In the relative recent past such globalists as George Soros and Goldman Sachs has been shorting gold. By his actions, George Soros has been telling you to get out of the markets, cash and the American banks. Soros and the rest of the criminal elite have been hording gold as have the BRICS. These entities are telling you, by action, what medium of exchange is going to be of value following the collapse that is coming.
Storing gold and silver is an economic survival strategy which will pay dividends after the smoke begins to clear in the post-collapse era. My precious metals strategy includes the following:
6. Storing Food and Water
With regard to storing food, you need to do so immediately. I recommend storing two years worth of food. However, you need to master the art of growing food inside your home. There are plenty of resources which can teach you how to do that. However, you would be wise if you would create a hiding place in which you can store food and water safely in a hidden location. If you are ever robbed, you will not have exhausted your food supplies. You are most likely to be robbed by FEMA or one of their mercenary groups (e.g. Academia) during the beginning of the crisis because food and water will be used as weapons to control you. I am personally aware of FEMA going to selected homeowners in order to track a family’s reserve food and water supplies. Remember, water is sunlight and temperature sensitive. There are plenty of prepper manuals that you can consult for instructions on how to meet these needs.
Many cannot afford to go out and buy two years worth of food, or even 6 months. However, I feel strongly that everyone should have enough to get through an initial crisis. Most crises burn out in a month. With that in mind, I have the following storable food option that will help people get through an intial challenge.
FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY
The biggest threat to survival is death due to dehydration and starving to death. Contaminated water will also pose a threat. There are plenty of places to purchase large drums and obtain water tablets for water purification purposes. Obtain a pair of water filters in case you have to go mobile to survive. Ready Made Resources is where I go to get my water filtration equipment. There will always be water, but not drinking water. Good water filtrattion equipment, changes your odds.
Final thought, learn to grow your own food within your residence. Your garden will likely be raided by humans and hungry animals alike. There are plenty of prepper manuals which can teach you how to accomplish this task.
7. Personal Supplies
Of course you will need toothpaste, toiletries, eating utensils, etc. For a complete list of personal items see Steve Quayle’s list on his website.
8. Stockpile Medicines and Medical Supplies
If you or your family has a chronic health condition, it is critical that you have 6 months to a year in medicine. Also, you should research natural alternatives to treatment for health conditions in case you are not able to meet this goal due to the inability to obtain prescriptions. Don’t forget to obtain some pain medication and antibiotics in case of unforeseen emergencies. Make a trip to Mexico and sneak across medication in old pill bottles in order to escape detection by the Border Patrol who will ask you if you obtained medication in Mexico when you come back across the border.
If you can safely ration your existing medication doses, do so and store the excesses. Make sure you also have a first aid kit. Take a First Aid class including CPR at your local fire station. Do not forget your hygiene supplies.
Some are thinking that this is a lot of work. My response would be, how bad do you want you and your family to survive?
9. Guns and Ammunition
Buy your guns off the books from private parties and at gun shows.
“Keep guns for show and guns for go”. In other words, have a safe location that you can bury guns so that when gun confiscation begins, you will not be left totally defenseless.
America needs to not only create safe and secure homes, but to create as many Warsaw ghettos as possible (look it up). We need to make ourselves a hard country to conquer and occupy.
We cannot stop a treasonous leader from handing off the country to some foreign entity (e.g. the UN). However, occupation of America should be problematic for the blue-helmet wearing Russians, Chinese and other proxy forces training on our soil to occupy us.
It is recommended that you have 3 types of weapons: (1) pistols for close in fighting; (2) shotguns for defense of the entrance to your home; and, (3) a rifle with a scope in order to fight back against long-range snipers that do not want to storm your home because you appear to be prepared. Immediately, obtain weapons instruction for you and your family, firearms training and then practice! Conduct mock raids on your residence so that you can see your vulnerabilities. An armed populace makes a people more feared by an abusive government. If I had no gun training at all, I would opt for a shotgun with regard to home defense.
Do not forget about gas masks for each member of your family and make sure to store extras.
OBTAIN YOUR GUNS FROM PRIVATE PURCHASES SO IT CANNOT BE TRACKED!
10. Obtain Night Vision Equipment
If your family is located in a fixed location, the challenges of defending your property go up exponentially at night because you cannot see where the threat is coming from. Night vision equipment is not cheap, but your family is literally defenseless without it after the sun goes down. Ready Made Resources will finance your night vision purchases.
11. Prepare to Survive in the Raw Elements and Build a New Culture for Your Family
It is possible that you can learn to survive in the raw elements without heating and central air conditioning. You may not have lights. Obtain flashlights, many batteries and a hand crank radio. Make sure you have clothes befitting all weather that you may encounter because a crisis that begins in January, may not be over by August.
Take a weekend and pretend the grid is down. This will allow you to see firsthand what supplies you will need. When should you perform this drill? There is no time like the present. Also, take a camping weekend where you simulate having to “bug out”.
To people with generators, congratulations on your foresight. However, if you are the only house on the block with lights, how long do you think it will be until you have unwanted visitors with bad intent?
Don’t forget about procuring non-electronic forms of entertainment. This should include board games and educational materials for your children. You will want to establish some normalcy for the sake of your children. You are preparing to adopt a new way of life. Make the new life worth living.
I would also recommend that every personal library contain The Constitution of the United States. After the chaos subsides, we will need to rebuild. You will not want to live in a “might makes right” society.
12. Prepare Yourself Physically
If you are on the run, you may have to travel up to 20 miles per day. Get in shape, begin to walk, jog or run. The better shape you are in, the better.
Take self-defense classes. Many of these classes are offered free of charge at churches and community centers.
Practice shooting on a regular basis. If you can afford it, take gun safety and shooting lessons.
13. Do Not Tell Anyone
If your four adjacent neighbors broach the topic of preparedness, gauge the situation and then make an informed decision. If your neighbors are on board with preparing, that will help you form a defensive perimeter and a mutual alliance pact. Otherwise, tell nobody of your preparation plans. Do not tell your friends, family members, and co-workers. Make your preparations in cash or cashier’s checks as much as possible. Limit the paper trail to you. You do not want the government to know that you are prepared because you could be the first one on your block that is visited at 3AM. You and your mate should prepare in stealth. Kids talk and so do their friends.
Once you have your allies established, begin to trade and barter because the existing system may not be available for much longer.
14. You Need to Become the Neighborhood Nut Because There is Safety In Numbers
Never offer what you are doing to prepare or how far along you are with your preparations. However, you will need allies because you cannot guard your property 24/7/365. So, how do you recruit neighbors to become your allies without telling them what you are up to? Simple, with each neighbor that is convinced and understands what is at stake, you should feign ignorance and act as if you and your neighbor are learning prepping together. Teach your awake neighbor how to prepare. You will need allies to help protect your family and resources and it is not likely that you can do this alone.
15. PREPARE YOURSELF SPIRITUALLY AND BE SURE TO PRAY!
Survival is never guaranteed, salvation is! And do not forget one of your most important resources, your Bible.
The conclusion is simple, if you want to increase your chances for survival, now is the time to act. You may not use any of the vendors that I have listed here, however, you need to get busy preparing. The globalists are in panic mode and all of us need to react accordingly.
Here is a brief video summary to share with friends about the general essentials need for survival.
