Unless you live under a rock you know about the siginficantly increased tensions in the middle east due to the Turkish shoot down of one of Russia’s jets, the death of one of their pilots (one recovered alive, according to news reports), and the alleged shoot down of one of their rescue helicopters.
The following author believes this to be purposeful action to cover or excuse the huge economic collapse about to happen globally. There are many, many economists that have been warning about this for some time. Math doesn’t lie, as they are wont to say.
This means that you, gentle reader, don’t have an infinite amount of time to increase your preparations or skill sets before this becomes “local, local, local” through shortages (gas, oil, food, electricity), which may, in turn, unleash a level of lawlessness heretofore unheard of or witnessed on large scale in our state or country. For a good taste of what might be in store, read, “Savage Continent: Europe in the Aftermath of World War II” by Keith Lowe. Obviously, we are not coming out of a global conflict with no infrastructure. What is to be paid attention to are the ethnic and ideological forces that drove the ‘liberated’ Europeans to barbarism (for a period) almost equaling that of the Nazi occupiers in regards to non-Aryan people.
That barbarity, given the state of American culture today (the worship of, “ME!”, dumbed down electorate, progressive agendas driven as ‘fact’ by Hegelian dialect, etc), could easily happen in many regions of the state and country. One only has to look at the so-called ‘protest groups’ comprised of ‘social justice warriors’ and listen to what they would like to see happen for common sense evidence that our state and country are ripe for an equal obscenity as witnessed by Europe in the months following the surrender of Nazi Germany in WW II. The federal government through the FBI is now publicly telling us through ‘news interviews’ that ‘Uncle Sam’ cannot be counted on to keep order or ‘ride to the rescue,‘ let alone effectively, as has been the conventional wisdom of past decades.
Then we’ve got these assholes to deal with; arriving in increasing numbers, (some known; others unknown) and are, by all accounts, just waiting for a ‘go code’ to add to the mix.
It’s not hard to envision that when S does HTF, it’s going to be with a vengeance.
“The West is patently broke. Our standard of living can no longer be “funded” with debt. The current negative swap rates I believe are evidence of a scarcity of collateral …the alternative being banks and brokers truly are a better credit risk than sovereign debt. We also know gold is in scarcity because the negative GOFO rates. If you look to COMEX registered inventories you will see they are almost gone and amount to 150,000 ounces heading into what is the biggest delivery month of the year. The list goes on and on but suffice it to say, no matter where you look you will see things financial and economic either in decline or collapsing. You need to “look” for yourself and past the “headlines” and BLS reportings to understand why “now”.
I have long thought Russia and China had a “truth bomb” up their sleeve to be delivered by Mr. Putin. It has been my opinion he would expose many falsehoods and false flags over the years with hard evidence to back his claims.”

I’m not a Fox news fan. However, when the feds get on Fox and state on national news that, “Don’t wait for Uncle Sam to protect you. Every American has a duty and responsibility to be aware of the threat and be prepared to protect themselves,” you need to understand that the danger is real, and the feds are trying to cover their ever-widening asses. NPT training anyone? We can help all the way from planning to building and training your NPT. Send us a note and we can get started with training tailored to your needs.
On “The Kelly File” tonight, FBI counterterrorism expert Dr. Sebastian Gorka urged Americans to be on heightened alert at all times in the wake of the Paris terror attacks.
“Don’t wait for Uncle Sam to protect you. Every American has a duty and responsibility to be aware of the threat and be prepared to protect themselves,” Gorka said.
He suggested that if you live in a state or municipality that allows you to carry a weapon, you should get training and do so.
Gorka said that he believes there are already active sleeper cells in the U.S.
He pointed out that FBI director James Comey has said that there are up to 900 ISIS-related investigations, in all 50 states.
Gorka added that the successful Paris attacks will be an encouragement for radical Islamists in the U.S.
“The jihad is real, the jihad is global and they want to bring it to the shores of America.”
A Northwest Detroit man, somebody’s grandpa, 91 years old, nearly deaf, retired and enjoying his final years, was home in bed when he was murdered and subsequently set on fire.
Read about it, here.
Especially poignant are these two excerpts from the comments (emphasis added):
“This deviant has killed before, and he doesn’t stay far from the crime scene. He scoped the old man extensively before attacking. The DPD should start checking out rental shack occupants within a couple of blocks. Everyone with a warrant needs to be picked up, and the drughouse should be hit hard over and over. The Neighborhood Criminal Network will give the deviant up just to get the DPD out of the area.
Oh, I love your comment “DPD should start checking our rental shack occupants.” Hah. Fat chance. I just got off the phone with the police over the drug house renters next door. The renter had come over to my house and made threats against me if I reported him to the landlord again. 911 insisted on sending DPD out. The guy came out and started harassing me while they were here. I showed them my ripped fence. The garbage along my fence they threw and other instances of harassment. I told them I wanted a copy of the police report (to file a PPO). Cop says he is NOT filing a police report. He says threatening a neighbor is NOT A CRIME. You can go threaten anyone you want. So, if you want help, you have to be shot dead first, before they even file a report. I tried to reach the commander, got transferred around and hung up on. NEWS FLASH: THEY DON’T CARE! WONDER WHY? GUESS.”
Point? You are responsible for you and yours. If you’re living in a combat zone, be prepared to fight for yourself, because the police, as demonstrated in this case, aren’t coming. If you can’t or won’t, move out as quickly as you can.
The story above underscores the need for a NPT wherever you live. Predators are migratory…..
Think for a bit on this: If you’re one of those people (and it’s hard not to be in today’s corporate world as well as when staying in touch with family and friends) who has their eyes glued to their smart phone everywhere they go, barely lifting their eyes to avoid crashing into doors or other people, you are helping predators ply their trade against you. It’s always easier to hunt your prey when its head is down and it’s contentedly browsing and not paying attention to anything but its own satisfaction.
There’s a simple reason: You are completely unaware of your surroundings, and have blocked out everything but what’s on that tiny little screen. You won’t see the Mutant Zombie Biker Gang Banger from China With His AK coming up behind you to introduce you to, “Peace.”
Tracking issues and the NSA aside, the technology available to us in our daily lives can literally mean the difference between life and death in certain situations, but at the same time, our national addiction to connectivity causes traffic crashes, lost conversations with someone right next to you, the inability to be aware of your surroundings, and might even be a contributing factor to the demise of serious relationships.
Read the following articles on this subject, here and here. And consider what’s going on in your own life in regards to you and your phone. Then, cross reference that with your concern with preparedness and how complete submersion in your phone could detract from that.
We are on the cusp of the American holiday season, AKA, ‘Thanksgiving and Christmas Season.’ Bad people are going to be out in force, licking their chops at all the varieties of people on the violent rape, robbery, and murder smorgasbord.
Don’t be on the menu.
Stay alert, apply what you’ve been studying and training. Whether you’re at home, visiting, or doing your daily routine, keep your head up, your eyes open, and see what might be coming at you.

When SHTF, this may be the only way to avoid Tetanus infection. In non-SHTF situations, if you’re of the school of thought that a lot of vaccines are laced with dangerous and unhealthy substances (as I am), this can help you avoid the need to get injected with those dangerous substances.
“First things first, if you get a cut, laceration or puncture wound you need to clean it thoroughly. The best way to do this use some kind of strong liquid to soak it in that kills bacteria. Iodine works great and is safe. After that soaking the wound in sea salt water (sea salt bath specific to the wound location) twice a day for a solid 7 days will draw out all toxins deep in the tissues. Internally you would want to start taking the following supplements:
- Grapefruit Seed Extract- 15 drops in water or juice 3 times per day for 2 weeks
- Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide- in water for a solid two weeks (follow instructions)
- Vitamin B-6- 10-15 mgs daily
- Magnesium- oxygenated- follow instructions
- Liquid Chlorophyll- 100-200 mg daily
- Vitamin C- 3,000 mg daily
Keep the wound aerated as much as possible without getting it dirty again. Remember that the Tetanus bacteria die in oxygen. The above not only help your body kill bacteria’s but also oxygenate your blood which in turns kills all non-beneficial bacteria living in your body.”

It’s your day. Take off work if you can. Go hunting…fishing…bowling…for a walk….hug your wife….your kid…your Dad and Mom…have a beer with some buddies…thank God…go to an old soldier’s home (if you have one in the area)…visit a VA hospital….laugh…cry…and remember…no matter what, remember…for the ones who can’t…let their memories come alive in what you do today. Celebrate our ‘absent comrades.’
Have a great day, brothers.
H/T to Brushbeater & WRSA for doing and then reblogging Part II of Breaking Contact for me. Part I, Breaking Contact When NOT Engaged, here.
WRSA: Read, print, re-read, practice, debrief, practice again. Really.

Brushbeater’s original post on the subject, here.
“…demonstrate buddy team bounding in a react to contact.”
- Everyone gets online(but behind cover…)
- One element lays down fire while another either moves forward or rearward.
- This is the Team Leader’s call…if you can fight and win, then by all means. Normally though, it’s in your best interest to smack them in the face then get out of dodge.
- The Patrol keeps doing this until they are no longer getting shot at.
- The Team Leader conducts ACE inspection(Ammo, Casualty, Equipment) of his men and adjusts the mission(whether you can continue or not) from there.
The sand table version looks like this:
Here’s the most important part from Brushbeater as applied to NPT security patrols (emphasis added):
“Your job, as a Scout specifically, is to see, hear, and not be seen. There may be times where you conduct deep penetration raids and ambushes; but the bulk of the time, you’re finding the lines and recording the numbers. The weapons you carry are a contingency plan. If you do your job, you shouldn’t need it; but stuff happens. And while the loadout requires more ammo and equipment than a standard Light Infantryman, again, it’s only a contingency. On a personal note, you’d be very surprised just how much ammo you’ll burn through on a break contact drill.”
And that’s the part that is sometimes hard for folks to get their heads around, especially when you’re building a NPT: Do. Not. Get. Into. A. Firefight. If. You. Can. Avoid. It. unless your tasking specifically calls for it. You’re the ‘eyes and ears’ of the Neighborhood Protection Area Perimeter.
