Sharia Law Is Replacing the U.S. Constitution

Right now, this is American Muslim outrage against the persecution of Christians? Where is the outrage?
Right now, this is American Muslim outrage against the persecution of Christians? Where is the outrage?
Yes, we should be concerned about how Islam is being exported in a wholesale fashion to the modern nations of the world. Muslims have before have settled in European countries before and with disastrous results.  
As the world fixates on Muslim migration throughout Europe, we are losing sight of what is happening in our own backyard. As we fixate, courtesy of the mainstream media, the events in Europe, American communities are being overrun by a group of radicals who are dedicated to wreaking havoc.

I am a Christian and if my Christian brothers and sisters, through their misguided actions, were bringing harm to others, or in any way violates the Constitutional liberties of others, then I have a duty to call attention to these wrong acts and call for corrective action. In other words, every individual has an explicit duty to police the members of their own faith with regard to the appropriateness of their actions. This belief will guide the words that you will read over the next several paragraphs.

You need to forget Europe and worry about America. The Constitution and our Christian faith are at risk!

Didn’t We Sacrifice the Constitution to Defend Against Radical Islam?

As I continue to sacrifice my Fourth Amendment rights while I take off my shoes and subject myself to being x-rayed and illegally molested by TSA officials at the airport, I am constantly reminded of the threat that violent jihadists pose to Americans everywhere. However, not all jihadists are tasked with the commission of perpetrating mass murder upon the citizens of America. Many jihadists have altered their modus operandi and have subsequently adopted a type of stealth and cultural jihad as evidenced by excerpts of the following Muslim Brotherhood 2007 strategic memo which states that “The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that all their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and sabotaging their miserable house…”
Omar Ahmad, co-founder the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), made his anti-Christian bias crystal clear in a July 4, 1998 San Ramon Valley Herald article in which Ahmad stated “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Qur’an should be the highest authority in America.” This philosophy, commonly dubbed, Sharia law, is being systematically implemented right under our American noses and in a multitude of local venues.

The United States Is About to Be Overrun

Your will not here of this in the media. Even though there are hundreds “no-go zones,”  in Europe, and they are beginning to appear in the United States, the media is not permitted to report on this development. Even though they are likely breeding grounds for jihad where sharia governs, the media in places , like Dearborn,Michigan, are silent. In fact, even Fox News was forced to apologize after a commentator labeled parts of Europe no-go zones.

The Criminalization of Christianity

A growing number of Americans are slowly becoming cognizant of the threat being posed by the imposition of Sharia law upon an unwilling and often unaware non-Muslim American public.
Christianity is being criminalized in the United States. I am specifically worrying about about the kind of Christian faith that Kim Davis has demonstrated to the point where she has refused to issue gay marriage licenses rather than violate her own religious beliefs with regard to the unconstitutional action by the Supreme Court as it violated the 10 Amendment in reference to the legalization of gay marriage. Very soon, Christians all over the USA are going to be put into compromised positions where they must choose between faith and government overreach.The “new morality” demands allegiance to the state over God and this is just the beginning and soon many, just like Kim Davis, will have to decide whether they will take a stand, and like Davis, be willing to go to jail.  The radical judge that threw her into prison has said that she will stay there until she is willing to change her actions and acquiesce to illegitimate secular law.

The Prohibition Against Practicing One’s Faith One Applies to Christians, Muslims Seek Exemptions

In a similar case to Kim Davis, a Muslim flight attendant, Charee Stanley, claims she was suspended from her flight attendant position with Express Jet Airlines because she refused to serve alcohol. Stanley has filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Additionally, the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has entered  into the case. That would be Hamas as in the radical and violent terrorist group, Hamas. This would be the same Hamas, that is tied in with the Mexican drug cartels. And now our legal system are going to give these terrorists legal standing in our court. Weren’t we told that the NDAA was created for groups like Hamas? What is more egregious is that this Muslim expects preferential treatment for her religious beliefs while Kim Davis sits in jail over her Christian beliefs. Certain, the 14th Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause is dead and buried in modern America!
The Stanley case is just another example of a Muslim workplace lawsuit from CAIR which is designed to impose Islam on the workplace. This is such a typical action.

Life In Dearbornistan

Dearborn, Michigan is a portend of what is coming across our country.
Slightly more than 30% of Dearborn’s 95,000 residents are Arab-American or of Arab descent (PDF). Rather than let their religion stand as a shining example of an exemplary American subculture, the collective actions of the Muslims in Dearborn suggest a desire to extinguish all other forms of worship in the same manner that Cair’s co-founder, Oma Ahmad, has called for. Critics of the Muslim takeover of Dearborn have pointed to the fact that McDonald’s serves halal meat, business signs are bilingual, and every diner serves hummus. These developments do not concern me. What concerns me is the total disregard that this community is displaying towards the rights of others and their disregard has escalated to the level of life-threatening behaviors. Further, the civil authority in Dearborn is doing nothing to protect victimized Christians in their community.
Over the past week, I have watched three videos which demonstrate the preferential treatment that Muslims receive in Dearborn and how the police tolerate unchecked violence directed at Christians. The videos and their accompanying stories were not chosen based upon sensationalism. Rather, they were chosen for their representatives of what Christians can expect by living in this community.

Stoning of the Christians for Displaying Their Beliefs

In Dearborn, justice only walks on one side of the street.
In Dearborn, justice only walks on one side of the street.
 This extremely disturbing video shows what happened when a group of Christians whose transgressions included the act of holding up signs about Christianity at the Dearborn, Michigan Arab Festival. The Christians were viciously attacked, verbally and physically, and ultimately stoned (see 9:30 minutes into the video). Wayne County sheriff’s deputies stood by while a Muslim mob threw rocks at Christians, bloodying them.The officers then threatened the Christians with arrest if they didn’t leave the event.
Let’s put the shoe on the other foot for a moment. Can you imagine the outrage coming from the White House and CNN if Muslims were stoned at a Christian event for displaying signs promoting Islam?

Dearborn City Council Demonstrates Religious Preference for Muslims

The city council of Dearborn, Michigan voted 4-3 to became the first US city to officially implement all aspects of Sharia Law.  Sharia Law addresses secular law including crime, politics and economics as well as personal matters such as sexual intercourse, fasting, prayer, diet and hygiene.
Does this mean that those who steal will have limbs cut off? Will adulterers be stoned? Will honor killings be sanctioned on American soil? How far will this madness be allowed to penetrate the American culture.

Radicalism Spread Beyond Dearborn- Muslim Radical Attacks Christian Street Preacher in Front of a Cop With Impunity In Tampa

This case should concern every American because it shows how radical Islamic abuse of Christians has been allowed to spread beyond the city limits of Dearborn. The following video contains a head butt that went on unpunished and this was all caught on tape. “Street Preacher” is attacked by Muslim while preaching at a Lady Gaga Concert. The police not only ignore the head butt attack, they actually charged the Christian with battery. They would not view the video nor did they talk to any of the witnesses.


 These acts of Muslim inspired violence against Christians could fill volumes of books. In the interest of brevity, I only presented three examples.
Do I think that most Muslims are seeking to perpetrate violence against Christians? I do not believe that. However, all Muslims living in America have a fundamental duty to clean up their mess in the same manner that I would have to if the troublemakers were Christians.
The above comment needs no elaboration.
The above comment needs no elaboration.
muslims against free speechHas CAIR ever come out against ISIS? Did they speak out against ISIS execution of Kayla Muellar last summer? I have a message for CAIR. If you will not respect the rights of the majority culture who has so graciously allowed you to enter our country, then it is time for you to leave. If you are about to pick up your pen and tell me how I am falling for the divide an conquer strategy of the globalists where they promote gay vs. straight, black vs. white, and Muslim vs. Christian. I acknowledge that this is the case. However, Christians are backed into a corner. The right to safely practice our faith is at risk. Divide and conquer aside, if we do not stand together, Christians will enter a new era of extreme persecution.
Obama has refused entry of Syrian Christians to the United States and will only allow Muslim immigrants. Liberals, associated with the President are advocating for the admission of one million Syrians from a Muslim background. The United States is about to be overrun in the same fashion as Europe. And the Muslims and the civil authority in Dearborn have shown the rest of us what we are in for.
This is only the beginning. If we do not stand up to the imposition of Sharia Law, we will one day see Sharia Law supplanting the Constitution of the United States.

The Shemitah: The Biblical Pattern Which Indicates That A Financial Collapse May Be Coming In 2015

The Shemitah- Financial Collapse In 2015Does a mystery that is 3,500 years old hold the key to what is going to happen to global financial markets in 2015?  Could it be possible that the timing of major financial crashes is not just a matter of coincidence?  In previous articles on my website, I have discussed some of the major economic and financial cycle theories and their proponents.  For example, in an article entitled “If Economic Cycle Theorists Are Correct, 2015 To 2020 Will Be Pure Hell For The United States“, I examined a number of economic cycle theories that seem to indicate that the second half of this decade is going to be a nightmare economically.  But the cycle that I am going to discuss in this article is a lot more controversial than any of those.  In his most recent book, Jonathan Cahn has demonstrated that almost all of the major financial crashes in U.S. history are very closely tied to a seven year pattern that we find in the Bible known as “the Shemitah”.  Since that book was released, I have been asked about this repeatedly during radio appearances.  So in this article I am going to attempt to explain what the Shemitah is, and what this Biblical pattern seems to indicate may happen in 2015.  If you are an atheist, an agnostic, or are generally skeptical by nature, this article might prove quite challenging for you.  I would ask that you withhold judgment until you have examined the evidence.  When I first heard about these things, I had to go verify the facts for myself, because they are truly extraordinary.
So precisely what is “the Shemitah”?
In the Bible, the people of Israel were commanded to let the land lie fallow every seven years.  There would be no sowing and no reaping, and this is something that God took very seriously.  In fact, the failure to observe these Sabbath years was one of the main reasons cited in the Scriptures for why the Jewish people were exiled to Babylon in 586 BC.
But there was more to the Shemitah year than just letting the land lie fallow.
On the last day of the Shemitah year, the people of Israel were instructed to perform a releasing of debts.  We find the following in Deuteronomy chapter 15
At the end of every seven years you shall grant a relinquishing of debtsThis is the manner of the relinquishing: Every creditor that has loaned anything to his neighbor shall relinquish it. He shall not exact it of his neighbor, or of his brother, because it is called the Lord’s relinquishment. 
This happened at the end of every seven years on Elul 29 – the day right before Rosh Hashanah on the Biblical calendar.
So what does this have to do with us today?
Well, if you go back to the last day of the Shemitah year in 2001, you will find that there was an absolutely horrifying stock market crash.
On September 17th, 2001 (which was Elul 29 on the Jewish calendar), we witnessed the greatest one day stock market crash in U.S. history up to that time.  The Dow fell an astounding 684 points, and it was a record that held for precisely seven years until the end of the next Shemitah year.
At the end of the next Shemitah year in 2008, another horrifying stock market crash took place.  On September 29th, 2008 the Dow plummeted 777 points, which still today remains the greatest one day stock market crash of all time.  It turns out that September 29th, 2008 corresponded with Elul 29 on the Jewish calendar – the precise day when the Bible calls for a releasing of debts.
So on the very last day of the last two Shemitah years, the stock market crashed so badly that it set a brand new all-time record.
And now we are in another Shemitah year.  It began last fall, and it will end next September.
Could it be possible that we will see another historic market crash?
Author Jonathan Cahn has correctly pointed out that we should never put God in a box.  Just because something has happened in the past does not mean that it will happen again.  But we should not rule anything out either.
Perhaps God is using His calendar to make a point.  Cahn believes that if we are going to see something happen, it will probably occur as the Shemitah year comes to an end
Cahn has pointed that, according to his research, the worst of the worst usually happens at the end of the Shemitah year, not at the beginning. In fact, the last day of the year, Elul 29 on the Hebrew calendar, which will occur on Sept. 13, 2015, is the most dreaded day.
The pattern revealed in “The Mystery of the Shemitah” is that the beginning of the Shemitah’s impact is often subtle, but leads to a dramatic climax.
“The beginning may mark a change in direction, even a foreshadow of what will come to a crescendo at the Shemitah’s end,” he said.
And this time around, far more people are paying attention.  Back in 2001 and 2008, most Americans had absolutely no idea what a “Shemitah year” was.  But now it is being talked about on some of the most prominent alternative news websites on the Internet.  For example, the following is what Joseph Farah of WND has to say about the Shemitah year…
Farah believes the date Sept. 13, 2015 bears close watching – though he is quick to admit he has no idea what, if anything, will happen in America.
“A clear pattern has been established,” he says. “I don’t believe it’s a coincidence what happened in America on Elul 29 in 2001 and 2008. It would be foolish to ignore the possibility that a greater judgment might be in the works – especially if America continues to move away from God and His Word.”
The Shemitah year that we are in now does end on September 13th, 2015 – and that falls on a Sunday so the markets will be closed.
But what it comes to the Shemitah, we aren’t just looking at one particular day.
And it is very interesting to note that there will also be a solar eclipse on September 13th, 2015.  Over the past century, there have only been two other times when a solar eclipse has corresponded with the end of a Shemitah year.  Those two times were in 1931 and 1987, and as Jonathan Cahn has told WND, those solar eclipses foreshadowed major financial disasters…
In 1931, a solar eclipse took place on Sept. 12 – the end of a “Shemitah” year. Eight days later, England abandoned the gold standard, setting off market crashes and bank failures around the world. It also ushered in the greatest monthlong stock market percentage crash in Wall Street history.
In 1987, a solar eclipse took place Sept. 23 – again the end of a “Shemitah” year. Less than 30 days later came “Black Monday” the greatest percentage crash in Wall Street history.
Is Cahn predicting doom and gloom on Sept. 13, 2015? He’s careful to avoid a prediction, saying, “In the past, this ushered in the worst collapses in Wall Street history. What will it bring this time? Again, as before, the phenomenon does not have to manifest at the next convergence. But, at the same time, and again, it is wise to take note.”
So what is going to happen this time?
We will just have to wait and see.
But without a doubt so many of the same patterns that we witnessed just prior to the financial crash of 2008 are happening again right before our very eyes.
It has been said that those that do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
Perhaps you believe that there is something to “the Shemitah”, or perhaps you think that it is all a bunch of nonsense.
But at least now you know what everyone is talking about.  What you choose to do with this information is up to you.

Assange on ‘US Empire,’ Assad govt overthrow plans & new book ‘The WikiLeaks Files’

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has opened up about his new book, 'The WikiLeaks Files,' speaking about the 'US empire' and telling RT's 'Going Underground' program that Washington had plans to overthrow Syria's government long before the 2011 uprising began.
Speaking to 'Going Underground' host Afshin Rattansi, Assange referred to the chapter on Syria, which goes back to 2006. In that chapter is a cable from US Ambassador William Roebuck, who was stationed in Damascus, which apparently discusses a plan for the overthrow of the Assad government in Syria.
“...That plan was to use a number of different factors to create paranoia within the Syrian government; to push it to overreact, to make it fear there's a coup...so in theory it says 'We have a problem with Islamic extremists crossing over the border with Iraq, and we're taking actions against them to take this information and make the Syrian government look weak, the fact that it is dealing with Islamic extremists at all.'”
He added that the most serious part of the plan was to “foster tensions between Shiites and Sunnis. In particular, to take rumors that are known to be false...or exaggerations and promote them – that Iran is trying to convert poor Sunnis, and to work with Saudi and Egypt to foster that perception in order to make it harder for Iran to have influence, and also harder for the government to have influence in the population.”

Assange stressed that this particular cable was “quite concerning,” adding that while you often have to read between the lines in cables, “its all hanging out” in that one.
To understand what is happening in and around Syria, one must look at regional alliances, Assange said.
“Part of the problem in Syria is that you have a number of US allies surrounding it, principally Saudi and Qatar, that are funneling in weapons. Turkey as well [is] a very serious actor. [They] each have their own hegemonic ambitions in the region. Israel also, no doubt, if Syria sufficiently destabilized, it might be in a position where it can keep the Golan Heights forever, or even advance that territory. So you've got a number of players around Syria that are looking to bite off pieces...”

'US empire'

Assange said that when the US government wants something, it brings together the various arms of American power – including military, intelligence, financial, and commercial, as well as its informational and diplomatic power, in order to “push” on a country.
But Washington's habits don't pay off so easily in South America, according to Assange. He said the US empire's influence is harder to achieve there, because those nations are surrounded by relatively supportive states.
One cable in Assange's book details an instance when the US went to Brazil, telling the country that it wanted to reign in Venezuela. Brazil responded with a resounding “no.”
But while Assange maintains that the US is indeed an empire, he says it's not one in the classical sense. Instead, its imperialism lies in over 1,400 US military bases in more than 120 countries, as well in its trade deals.
“It uses these mechanisms of its embassies, of its military bases, of its presence in organizations like the UN and IMF, in order to secure advantageous deals and structures for the largest American companies.”

The British government has so far spent £12 million (US$18.4 million) on a round-the-clock police operation outside the Ecuadorian embassy, with officers standing guard to arrest Assange if he leaves the premises.

September - "National Preparedness Month" - FEMA warns to prepare NOW

Here is teh link to FEMA Preparedness Month http://www.ready.gov/september
National PrepareAthon Day!! SEPTEMBER 30 http://www.community.fema.gov

Japan is sandwiched between a hurricane and a typhoon

Authorities in central Japan Thursday (Sep 9) ordered tens of thousands to flee their homes after torrential rains flooded rivers and triggered landslides, with one person missing after a mudslide buried houses.

The Japan Meteorological Agency issued special downpour warnings for Tochigi and Ibaraki prefectures, north of Tokyo, urging vigilance against mudslides and flooding.
"This is a scale of downpour that we have not experienced before.
Grave danger could be imminent," meteorologist Takuya Deshimaru said at an emergency press conference.

Parts of central Tochigi have been deluged with almost 60cm of rain since Monday evening. Authorities in Tochigi ordered more than 90,000 residents to evacuate, while another 80,000 were advised to leave their homes, public broadcaster NHK said.
The meteorological observatory in Tochigi said the Kinugawa river, which also runs through Ibaraki, overflowed early Thursday. In Tochigi's Kanuma city, a local official said rescuers were searching for a missing person believed to be buried in mudslides.
"We don't know details of the person yet," he said. NHK reported it was a woman in her 60s buried after mudslides destroyed houses.

Her husband was rescued soon after, it said.

The Japan Meteorological Agency issued a heavy rain emergency warning to Tochigi and Ibaraki prefectures on Thursday due to extremely high risks of sediment disasters in the Kanto region.

Economic Crisis: How You Can Prepare Over The Next Six Months

Image result for Economic Crisis: How You Can Prepare Over The Next Six Months

I wouldn’t say that it is “never too late” to prepare for potential disaster because, obviously, the numerous economic and social catastrophes of the past have proven otherwise. There simply comes a point in time in which the ignorant and presumptive are indeed officially screwed. I will say that we have not quite come to that point yet here in the U.S., but the window of opportunity for preparation is growing very narrow.
As expected, U.S. stocks are now revealing the underlying instability of our economy, which has been festering for several years.  Extreme volatility not seen since 2008/2009 has returned, sometimes with 1000 point fluctuations positive and negative in the span of only a couple days.  Current market tremors are beginning to resemble the EKG of a patient suffering a heart attack.
Stocks are a trailing indicator, meaning that when an equities crash finally becomes visible to the mainstream public, it indicates that the economic fundamentals have been broken beyond repair for quite a while. What does this mean for those people who prefer to protect themselves and their families rather than wait to be drowned like lemmings in a deluge? It means they are lucky if they have more than a few months to put their house in order.
The process of crisis preparedness is not as simple as going on a gear-buying bonanza or making a few extra trips to Costco. That is better than nothing; but really, it’s a form of half-assed prepping that creates more of an illusion of survivabilty rather than providing ample security in the event that financial systems malfunction.
Much of what’s listed in this article will include training and infrastructure goals far beyond the usual standards of beans, bullets and Band-Aids.
Market turmoil has only just begun to take shape around the globe; and as I explained in my last article, the situation is only going to become exponentially worse as 2015 bleeds into 2016. I certainly cannot say for certain how long our system will remain “stable,” primarily because our current collapse could easily move faster or slower through the influence of outside or engineered events (a slower progression without any black swan-style triggers would likely end in total breakdown within the span of a couple years, rather than a fast progression ending in the span of a few months). What I can do is give you a conservative timeline for preparedness and offer examples of actions anyone can accomplish within that period. For now, my timeline is limited to six months or less, meaning these preparations should be undertaken with the intent to complete them in half a year. If you get more time than that, thank your lucky stars for the extension.
Find Two Family Members, Two Friends and One Neighbor Of Like Mind
Here is the bottom line: If you are going the route of the lone wolf or secret squirrel isolated from any community, then you are already dead. You might as well hand your food and supplies over to someone else with a better fighting chance. The lone wolf methodology is the worst possible strategy for survival. And if you look at almost every collapse scenario in history from Argentina to Bosnia to the Great Depression, it is always the people with strong community who end up surviving.
Going lone wolf is partially useful only if you have zero moral fortitude and you plan to rob or murder every other person you come across and then run. This is not the smartest idea either because it requires a person to constantly seek out violent contact in order to live day to day. Eventually, the lone wolf’s luck will run out no matter how vicious he is.
I’ve noticed that those people who promote lone wolf survivalism tend to lean toward moral relativism, though they rarely come right out and admit what their real plans are. I’ve also noticed that it is the lone wolves who also often attempt to shame average preppers into isolationism with claims of “OPSEC” (operations security) and warnings of neighbors ready to loot their homes at the first sign of unrest. “Don’t talk to anyone,” they say. “Your only chance is to hide.” One should consider the possibility that the lone wolves prefer that preppers never form groups or communities because that would make their predatory strategy more successful.
Without community, you have no security beyond the hope that people will not find you by chance. You also have limited skill sets to draw from (no one has the knowledge and ability to provide all services and necessities for themselves). And you will have no ability to rebuild or extend your lines of safety, food production, health services, etc. once the opportunity arises. If you cannot find two family members, two friends and one neighbor to work with you in the next six months, then you aren’t trying hard enough; and thus, frankly, you don’t deserve to survive. I’ve heard all the excuses before: “Everyone around me is blissfully ignorant,” “My family is addicted to their cellphones,” “All my friends are Keynesians” and so on. It doesn’t matter. No more excuses. Get it done. If I can do it, you can.
Approach Your Church, Veterans’ Hall Or Other Organization
What do you have to lose? Find an existing organization you belong to and see if you can convince them to pre-stage supplies or hold classes on vital skills. Keep your approach nonpolitical. Make it strictly about preparedness and training. If you can motivate a church or a veterans’ hall or a homeschoolers’ club to actually go beyond their normal parameters and think critically about crisis preparedness, then you may have just saved the lives of dozens if not hundreds or people who would have been oblivious otherwise. Making the effort to approach such groups could be accomplished in weeks, let alone six months.
Learn A Trade Skill
Take the next six months and learn one valuable trade skill, meaning any skill that would allow you to produce a necessity, repair a necessity or teach a necessary knowledge set. If you cannot do this, then you will have no capability to barter in a sustainable way. Remember this: The future belongs to the producers, and only producers will thrive post-collapse.
Commit To Rifle Training At Least Once A Week
Set aside the money and the ammo to practice with your primary rifle every week for the next six months. Yes, training uses up your ammo supply; but you are far better off sending a couple thousand rounds down range to perfect your shooting ability rather than letting that ammo sit in a box doing nothing while your speed and accuracy go nowhere.
Also, think in terms of real training methods, including speed drills, movement drills, reloading and malfunction clearing, and, most importantly, team movement and communications drills. Shooting a thousand rounds from a bench at the range is truly a waste of time and money. Train in an environment that matches your expected operational conditions. Make sure you are learning something new all the time and make sure you are actually challenged by the level of difficulty. If you are not getting frustrated, then you are not training correctly.
Create A Local Ham Network - Expand To Long Distance
A 5-watt ham radio can be had for about $40. With the flood of low-cost, Chinese-made radios on the market today, there is simply no excuse not to have one. If you want to get your ham license, then by all means do so and expand the number of available frequencies you can legally use. If you don’t have a license, practice on non-licensed channels such as MURS channels (yes, MURS is only supposed to be operated at 1 watt or less; I won’t tattle on you to the Federal Communications Commission if you use 5 watts).
A 5-watt handheld ham radio can easily achieve 30 miles or more depending on the type of antenna used. With repeaters, hundreds of miles can be covered. With a high frequency (HF) rig, hundreds or sometimes thousands of miles can be covered without the use of repeaters (though HF radios are far more expensive).
During a national disaster, there is no guarantee that normal communications will continue. Phone and Internet connections can be lost through neglect, or they can be deliberately eliminated by government entities. A nation or community without communications is lost. Find friends and family and set up your communications network now. Over time, your network may grow to cover a vast area; but it has to start with a core, and that core is you.
Learn Basic Emergency And Combat Medical Response
We are lucky in my area to have a few people with extensive medical knowledge in our Community Preparedness Team. I have received training in multiple areas of emergency and combat medical response, and I am grateful for access to such people because there is always more to learn in this field. If you do not have people on your team with medical experience, then you will have to seek out such classes where you can.
Local EMT classes are a good start, but these courses are very limited in scope and do not cover treatment as much as they cover the identification of particular problems. Almost no community courses I can think of delve into combat medical response. If you can’t find a private trainer in your area, then you will have to settle for Web videos. Purchase extra supplies such as Israeli or OLAES bandages and practice using them. Learn your CAT tourniquet until you can use it in the dark. My team even shot a Christmas ham and then pumped fake blood through it to simulate a wound for our blood-stopping class.
If you already have solid people with medical training, try focusing in a niche area like dental work. At the very least, learn your trauma-response basics and store your own medical supplies. Do not assume that you will have access to a hospital when you need it.
Store At Least One Year Of Food – Then Store Extra
With your current food stores can you make it at least one year without a grocery supply source? Can you make it through at least one planting and harvest season with 2000 – 3000 available calories per person? Do you have extra food for people you might wish to help?
Imagine you or your community come across an ER surgeon during a crisis situation, but he did not prepare. Are you going to “stick it to him” and let him starve because he didn't see the danger coming, or are you going to want to keep that guy and his skill sets around? Food preparedness is not as straightforward as it seems. You have to think in terms of your own survival, yes, but also in terms of individual aid. During a full spectrum collapse food is the key to everything. This is why governments like ours set up provisions for food confiscation. They know well that food is power. Without extra supply, communities struggle to form because people become hyper-focused on themselves and lose track of the bigger survival picture. Governments understand that if they can offer limited food to the desperate, they can control the desperate. Do what you can to make sure there are no desperate people within your sphere of influence and you remove the establishment's best mode of control.
Plan Your Food Independence In Advance
To survive you must become your own farmer. Period. Do you know how to do this in your particular climate? Have you accounted for pest control and bad weather conditions? Have you extended your growing season with the use of greenhouses? Are you planning your crops realistically? What provides more sustenance, a field of tomatoes or a field of potatoes? A planting box full of lettuce or of carrots? What crops can be stored the longest and are the hardiest against poor conditions? What gives you the best bang for your buck and for your labor?
I realize that the current growing season is almost at an end, but that does not mean you can't spend the next six months planning for the next season. Condition your soil for planting now. Store extra fertilizer and compost. Be ready for pests. Learn the square foot method as well as barrel planting. Take note of the space you have and how you can best use it. Stockpile seeds for several years of planting.
Train Your Mind To Handle Crisis
Panic betrays and fear kills. The preparedness culture is built upon the ideal that one must defeat fear in order to live. How a person goes about removing uncertainty from the mind is really up to the individual. For me, combat training and mixed martial arts is a great tool. If you get used to people trying to hurt you in a ring, it's not quite as surprising or terrifying when it happens in the real world. If you can handle physical and mental trauma in a slightly more controlled environment, then fear is less likely to take hold of you during a surprise disaster.
Six months may be enough time to enter a state of mental preparedness, it may not be, but more than anything else, this is what you should be focusing on. All other survival actions depend on it. Your ability to function personally, your ability to work with others, your ability to act when necessary, all rely on your removal of fear. Take the precious time you have now and ensure you are ready to handle whatever the future throws at you.

SITUATION CRITICAL: A Stock Market Mega-Crash Is Dead Ahead.

As the mainstream financial pundits continue to spew out that "you should be buying the dips" in this market, incidentally the DOW is now down over 2,000 points since the top back in May, what the mainstream IS NOT telling you is this:
We may now be on the verge of a Mega-Stock Market Crash.
Have a look at the chart below.

We are now sitting on top of the biggest stock market bubble in world history, and as can be seen clearly, we are in a classic technical megaphone pattern.
So as the mainstream financial "experts" continue their narrative that you should not fear the current price action of the market, nor even worry that the DOW has already fallen more than 2,000 points since the top, perhaps you should begin to think for yourself.
I contend that right here and now we may be on the verge of a major global financial event. Are you ready?
