I remember watching one of the "prepper" shows, where the guy bought booze! Lots and lots of vodka - I think it was - so that he could use it as a barter item.

I'm thinking bartering becomes valuable, rather than coins, in the short term.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25676821


And what prevents some paramilitary unit showing up and taking it all for nothing?

Nothing.
One man can do nothing against a larger group of men which are better prepared to take whatever they want

Why do the lot of you assume that there will be any law n order remaining when things crash?

There's barely any now, and I dont think it will get any better when the popo are no longer getting paid, or are getting paid to be someones private militia.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1310640


No, not for nothing. We prep cause we want to HOPE we can survive. That we can provide some semblance of hope for our family, for our future.

We prep because we know that if we go outside our doors during a military action we WILL be sent to a camp, everything we own taken away. Does that mean I will be able to fend off an attach by some paramilitary unit showing up at my door? I'm hoping they don't know I HAVE anything to take, and pass me by!

Also, I have done other "smart" things, like moving to a small county, away from a large city, and know my neighbors well enough to HOPE they don't kill me for my little bit of food (that they don't know I have, btw).

And NO ONE is assuming there will be any law and order remaining! We're all just hoping we can remain silent, invisible, and self-sustaining long enough for order to be restored in the crazy world around us.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25676821


No, you prep because youre a frightened pussy afraid to defend your rights,
You prep to hide, to run away, to squeeze your eyes shut until the boogie man goes away, youre a self centered tard hoping against hope that someone else will save you from the bully youre afraid to say 'no' to.
You prep because you hand over your lunch money, and hope the bully forgets about you while beating up someone else.

Spoken from an AC Green Beret, Ninja, Commando, right? Tell us some of your horseshit Iraq stories and how you 'fought for our freedom' and we are 'cowards' for prepping.

I love you assholes. "You're losing yer freedoms."

No, most real preppers are people with patriotism and commonsense, so shut your fuckin' yap.

It is too late for them to engineer a 'soft landing'. There is no point in trying to pay off personal debt anymore, the time has come to quietly stock your basement to the rafters with canned goods and the means to protect your stuff.

This is only part of the equation.

Modern life has been purposefully guided in a direction where each individual is served via technology. Most have self-guided into such a servitude, but others have refused in the realm of social engineering.

Once these supports of modern technology that give industrialized countries food, power, heating, cooling, clean water, and entertainment are removed simultaneously - the people will clamor and beg for control.

This control will be be merciless, exactly as the people will clamor for. You will become your own jailer and wish for more as the screws of the society tighten your life.

Natural disasters, financial collapse, military actions (both internal and external to your country of origin), and pandemics will all combine at the same time.

The old world will burn in nuclear fire and a new one will rise up to take its place. The new world will bring the order which the people have demanded.

It will be glorious!

Re: The Trigger has been pulled, the Crash has begun. How are things going to play out? My take...
Excellent thread! 5*'s and green thumbs to you OP.

So far I have read many interesting theories, but it seems the one thing that the vast majority of us can agree on is that it IS coming... and fairly soon.

I too am study of eschatology, beginning with William Cooper back in the early 90's, when I read "Behold A Pale Horse". That's when I discovered the prophecies of the Hopi, the Navajo, Nostradamus, Edgar Cayce, The Bible and The Koran, etc.. etc... etc.

When one lays out the predicted events of all the various prophets and prophecies in a flow chart, they appear to mesh almost perfectly together.

I believe Obama and the U.S. government is "Mabus" or the Antichrist, and America is Babylon. I also believe that there will not be one lone event that triggers the collapse, but rather a series of smaller events that will escalate. Events that we are seeing now.

I believe that North Korea will play a big role in it, but not as big a role as Obama.

It's going to be a long, hot summer... but certainly not a boring one.

Re: The Trigger has been pulled, the Crash has begun. How are things going to play out? My take...
Dear Eschatological High Priest!! I have been a End-Time Bible preaching man of God for 38 years now. And I have been expecting the antichrist to take over the world for all of those years.

And you are totally right; and those in the know are preparing to hunker down and watch Americans and the rest of the world suffer the great consequences of being robbed and stolen from by them. They have an evil superiority complex and they think that they are gods and they are ruling because God wants them to rule.

And most of them know that they are serving Lucifer or Satan (who is one and the same evil fallen angel)and Lucifer has showed them how to rule the world by murder and great genocides and world wars and capturing all the wealth of the whole world. And Satan has convinced them that this will go on forever.

But because of their great pride and avaraciousness; they think that they will rule the world as gods; while only 2 billion to 500 million are left to be their slaves and serfs. But it won't happen like that.

After they have killed most of Gods people who wouldn't take their zombie making and mind controlling, mark of the beast chip in their foreheads or right hands; the Great God of Heaven will pour down His mighty book of Revelation plagues upon them for 42 months of hell on the Earth. And their trillions of dollars of stolen loot will not be able to save them. And they will have no remedy for Gods great plagues. And they will suffer immensely; until they know that they are being defeated by the Almighty. But it will be too late and Gods mighty angelic forces from heaven along with Jesus Christ Himself; shall defeat them in hours; and have them all before His Fathers great white throne for the Great Judgment Day.

And then they will be judged from the beginning of time, from Cain, until the last wicked murderer and evil genocidal monster. Where they will be thrown into the great lake of fire and brimstone; where they will be swimming in it forever and ever and ever. While we that serve and know Jesus Christ will live like gods and goddesses, on the renovated and beautified Earth!!!

I have read every one of your posts on this thread and I just wanted to ask you a question. Where do you get the impression that "preppers" are people who just sit around hoarding their preps and wait for doom and are NOT successful in the here and now financial climate?

I believe more people than not ,on this thread, are NOT poor people on welfare or minimum wage employees. Most of us are very successful people who have the money and time to prep and gain skills we believe will be much needed in the coming times. We DO KNOW HOW to navigate the current financial climate to our benefit.

This is how we create our "niche" in the coming future and will "hopefully" become successful and live (and thrive) as best we can.

Re: The Trigger has been pulled, the Crash has begun. How are things going to play out? My take...
There are just too many groups here and governments around the world who want and are working toward this for it not to happen.

And I think there are so many Americans who will stupidly go along, even help it, because they believe America needs to suffer. They will gladly sacrifice themselves, their children ,so they can gleefully and orgasmically live in squalor to please king Obama.

Liberals have the masses convinced that the Big Daddy government will turn America into one big ole hippie commune where every one lives together with long flowing hair, blank smiling faces, and no one knows whose the father of their children.

Unfortunately by the time they figure out Big Daddy's more Charles Manson than Jesus Christ itll be too late.
And by and by Christopher Robin came to an end of things, and he was silent, and he sat there, looking out over the world, just wishing it wouldn't stop.

Re: The Trigger has been pulled, the Crash has begun. How are things going to play out? My take...
Preppers can really be divided into two categories. There's the ones with chemical suits and bunkers. Then there's the ones who keep a few months of food stuck back and some water and toilet paper. I fall into the latter group. There is no downside to this strategy. Whether the world fails or not this strategy is a winner.

Keeping several months of staple food that you actually eat provides a hedge not just against epic doom, but the much more likely dull boring doom that hits millions every year. Lost income or expensive car repairs can be made up for by dipping into the supply cabinet. Then there is the money saved. When you go grocery shopping you can focus more on what is on sale rather than what you need since you are already well stocked. Food inflation is another reason to buy now. You won't save but a few dollars, but why not.

I'm not going to criticize the other kind of prepper. There is good reason to think that they may be the smart ones. On the other hand they may end up spending their money, life, and energy preparing for something that never comes. To each his/her own.

I'll say this though. If you don't have pounds of dried beans and/or dozens of cans of food and a few gallons of water stuck back somewhere then you really are an idiot.

Re: The Trigger has been pulled, the Crash has begun. How are things going to play out? My take...
The funny thing about a lot of you, all "prepared" with your preps, is that you are so impotent in the current world that you are desperate for a crash as the OP suggested. You falsely believe that when the SHTF you're the only ones who will be prepared to deal with it.

You need to realize that your preps makes no statement whatsoever about your ability to handle a disaster but instead makes a statement about how incapable you are right now.

I suggest you learn how to manage today much better than you are right now. The future will take care of itself.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33331142


I take exception to your comments. I have a successful law practice. When the economy tanked, I gave up my home and all debt, and I bought a sailboat.

So it is possible that those of us who are "prepping" are totally capable at managing our lives while we wait for the collapse.

Re: The Trigger has been pulled, the Crash has begun. How are things going to play out? My take...
How come so many Canadians and other non-Americans seem to
1) know a lot about our politics, economy, and other bs
2) know more than the average Americans

I obviously can't say exactly when this banking holiday will happen, but I think it is safe to say it is going to happen sometime in the next 18 months for sure, and possibly a LOT sooner than that. They simply cannot keep pretending things are okay for much longer. Anyone who isn't a Prepper yet, there is still time as long as the stores are open and your debit/credit card still works. Lay low, don't brag about supplies, and stockpile simple foodstuffs for the time when your family needs to hunker down.

What do you guys think? I have spent my life as an Eschatological High Priest, studying and preparing for the inevitable Crash of our soft Western Civilization. We have lived the easiest life of any Humans in our History, but that ride is about to come grinding to a halt. How do you think the United States (and the rest of the World) will handle the 'adjustment' that is in the mail?

Excellent theory and speculation all based upon existing factual situations.

You wonder "when" and "how" this will come about?

My speculation on the how and when of this is as follows:

1. Shortly after Obama visits Israel the US in conjuction with NATO and Israel will take action on Syria.

2. The resulting attack will pull in many nations prompting retaliatory attacks on Israel and the US. ( US attacks at first limited to terrorist type attacks).

3. With the US distracted North Korea strikes South Korea.

4. At some point in all of thia the US suffers a catastrophic military lose. Something so large it has not been seen since WWII...something like the loss of an Aircraft Carrier and all on board.

5. After the catastrophic military loss the US dollar drops like a rock as the only strength the US dollar has is our military strength.

6. At some point thereafter we are attacked by scud type rockets fired from nondescript container ships off off the east coast, west coast and the gulf of Mexico all tipped with EMP weapons made in North Korea.

7. The resulting "One Second After" type of situation is followed by the Russians and Chinese coming to "help" the American people and will be seen by some as liberators.

8. Then after the smoke clears and much of the US has been taken over and the people subdued (those who survived) a new global monetary system will be set up and a new global system of rule will be in place.


Suggested immediate course of action:

1. Arm yourself.

2. Stock pile food, water, seeds and meds/first aid supplies.

3. Get in shape.

4. Learn as much Chinese and Russian that you can.

5. Get right with God.

While you are correct on most of the things here, the crash is PLANNED only for later, therefore there is no rush to buy big supplies of food... not yet.
The Bible gives us exactly the dates when this happen.
What I am extremely worried is, how this will happen!

That, my dear friend is precisely what THEY have in mind.

But it will be one event after the other. First the market, then lots of other nasty surprises to break your senses.



AC due tell us more...

RED ALERT: World's biggest gold storage company dumps US citizens
[link to nesaranews.blogspot.com]

February 22, 2019

This has been coming on for some time. 500 pages of regulations (of U.S. citizens) that any bank or storage facility has to comply with if they have a reciprocal agreement with the U.S. And, the U.S. is pressuring virtually every country to comply. Most have caved, so far Singapore has not.

Here are a couple of predictions:

First, all qualified plan monies (pensions, 401ks, IRAs, etc) will have at least half of their value confiscated by the government by regulation requiring the confiscated amount be put into government bonds “because they are safer investments” and

Second, if you have stored gold here in the states or have it in your home, the government WILL COME FOR IT. This will happen as a new law requiring that all gold be turned in to the government for “safe keeping”. Funny, Germany which has requested their gold stored by our government has been told it will be sent to them over a 7 year period. I wonder if the confiscated gold they take away from us will be used to return the gold Germany entrusted to us for storage….where did Germany’s gold go? Obviously it is not available so it must be gone or we would return it to them as requested.

The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.
