It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

55 Percent Of Americans Believe That The Government Will Take Care Of Them If Disaster Strikes

If a major emergency happened in the United States, do you have faith that the government would take care of you?  Amazingly, even after all of the examples to the contrary that we have seen in recent years, a solid majority of all Americans actually believe that the government will be there for them when things hit the fan.  According to a new survey conducted by the Adelphi University Center for Health Innovation, 55 percent of Americans believe that the authorities will come to their rescue when disaster strikes.  Sadly, most Americans still view the government as a "nanny state" that has both the capability and the willingness to take care of them from the cradle to the grave.  Most Americans still have faith that the government will come through for them when they need it the most.  But all we have to do is look back at what happened during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to realize what a crock of baloney that is.  Hurricane Katrina was a disaster that was limited to a relatively small geographic area, and yet we all saw how the response of the federal government was a complete and utter failure.  So what is going to happen someday if there is a nationwide disaster that stretches on for months or even years?  Do you really believe that the federal government will be there for you?

How is the federal government going to take care of more than 300 million Americans in the event of a major financial collapse?

How is the federal government going to rescue more than 300 million Americans if a killer pandemic sweeps the nation?

How is the federal government going to make sure that more than 300 million Americans are safe and secure if a cyber attack cripples our power grid or takes down the entire Internet?

How is the federal government going to get food and water to more than 300 million Americans if an EMP blast takes down most of the electronics in this country?

It would be easy to go on and on discussing various nationwide emergency scenarios.  All over the globe the number of earthquakes is increasing, and it would be easy to imagine an absolutely massive earthquake on the west coast or along the New Madrid fault in the middle of the country leaving tens of millions of Americans in need of basic assistance.

What would the federal government do in a situation like that?

Or how would the government handle a full-blown eruption of a major volcano in the Pacific northwest?

If the federal government could not even come close to handling Hurricane Katrina, then how in the world are they going to rescue us from something far worse?

Sadly, most Americans just roll along as if everything is going to be just fine.  Just check out some of the other numbers from the survey mentioned at the top of this article....

-44 percent of all Americans do not have first-aid kits in their homes.

-48 percent of all Americans do not have any emergency supplies stored up.

-53 percent of all Americans do not have a 3 day supply of nonperishable food and water in their homes.

Essentially, what we have got is about half the country that is completely and totally unprepared.

About half the nation is sitting back and relying on the government to make all of the preparations.

Yes, the government is definitely preparing, but those preparations are only going to go so far.

On July 19th, 2012 FEMA posted a solicitation document for packaged meals.  According to that document, the maximum amount of meals that would be provided to FEMA under the contract would be 17.5 million meals.  The following is from the FEMA solicitation document....

As referred to in paragraph (b) of FAR Clause 52.216-22, “Indefinite Quantity” of this contract, the guaranteed contract minimum is 21,000 packaged meals to include the base and option periods.  The contract ceiling amount shall not exceed 17,500,000 packaged meals.
But even if FEMA ordered all 17.5 million meals, that simply is not going to go very far.  That would only be enough to provide about 5 percent of the population with a single meal.

So perhaps we should applaud FEMA for thinking ahead, but the truth is that there is simply no way that FEMA is going to be able to provide even the basic necessities for everyone if there is a very large regional or national disaster.

When a true disaster hits this country, the system is going to be concerned with saving and guarding and perpetuating itself.  The system is not really going to care about the survival of all of the "useless eaters" out there.

Recently, Barack Obama signed a series of executive orders that grant him extraordinary powers in the event of a national emergency.

With the stroke of a pen, Barack Obama could potentially take control of all food, all energy, all health resources, all transportation resources and all communication resources (including television, radio and the Internet).

Barack Obama insists that all of these executive orders are absolutely necessary.

Does he know something that we don't?

In a recent editorial by Barack Obama that ran in the Wall Street Journal, Obama warned us of some of the potential consequences of a devastating cyber attack....

It doesn't take much to imagine the consequences of a successful cyber attack. In a future conflict, an adversary unable to match our military supremacy on the battlefield might seek to exploit our computer vulnerabilities here at home. Taking down vital banking systems could trigger a financial crisis. The lack of clean water or functioning hospitals could spark a public health emergency. And as we've seen in past blackouts, the loss of electricity can bring businesses, cities and entire regions to a standstill.
So is there a reason why he is coming out with this now just a few months before the election?

That is a very good question.

In any event, the truth is that in the event of a major nationwide emergency the number one priority of the authorities will not be to take care of you.

In fact, the well being of you and your family will be very low on the list.

One of the top priorities will be to restore order, and authorities will use as much violence and brutality as it takes in order to do that.

We see examples of this around the nation every day.  For example, just check out the video posted below.  In the video, police officers in Anaheim, California can be seen firing "non-lethal" rounds at men, women and children while a police dog knocks over a baby carriage and attacks a woman who is holding a baby....



If that is how the authorities treat us in "good times", then how would they treat us during a true emergency?

And right now things are falling apart all around us.  The economy continues to get worse in many ways, and the U.S. poverty rate is currently on pace to reach its highest level since the 1960s.

As I wrote about a few days ago, the Federal Reserve and the federal government did not prevent the last major global financial crisis, and they are not going to be able to prevent the next one from happening either.

If you want to make it through what is coming, it is up to you to get prepared.  Nobody else is going to do it for you.

When the next major natural disaster or economic crisis happens, it will be those that have prepared that will have hope.  Those that have not prepared will be freaking out and many of them will totally give in to despair or fear.  But those that have gotten ready for the storm ahead of time will be able to be at peace.

Our world is becoming more unstable with each passing day.  If you have blind faith that the government will always take care of you, then there is a very good chance that someday you will be bitterly disappointed.  But if you work really hard to prepare yourself and your family now, then you will have a much better chance of making it through what is rapidly approaching.

In Anticipation Of The Coming American Apocalypse, 2 Lawmakers Plan To Create ‘Christian Survivalist Centers’ In Rural Areas

A couple of lawmakers from South Carolina want to establish a network of self-sufficient communities in their state in preparation for “societal collapse”.  In the long-term, they hope to “train and equip one million neighborhood leaders” that will be able to establish “a fresh beginning for America” in the aftermath of the great crisis that is coming.  State Representatives Josiah Magnuson and Jonathon Hill are both relatively young, they were both home-schooled, and each of their fathers are pastors.  They are calling their dream the “Virtue Solution Project”, and they are examples of a new breed of American politician that recognizes that the system is failing and that we desperately need to return to the values that this nation was founded upon.

In the short-term, Magnuson and Hill hope that the centers that they are establishing will enable communities to be able to survive the extraordinary challenges that are rapidly approaching.  Like someone else you may know, Magnuson and Hill are warning of a great economic collapse, catastrophic natural disasters, geopolitical instability and a complete breakdown of society.  When these things begin to unfold, their hope is that people will reach out to their neighbors and will work together to survive.  The following comes from U.S. News & World Report…

    The centers will be there when the economy collapses, a natural disaster occurs, a foreign nation attacks, the federal debt dooms the country or an electromagnetic pulse wipes out the nation’s infrastructure. All are scenarios they have considered.

    It’s also at these “micro hubs” that neighbors and fellow members of their “militia” will be able to learn about spiritual leadership, first aid, farming techniques, renewable energy sources, and setting up “perimeters” and other “tactical defense” strategies.

And of course Magnuson and Hill hope that their centers will have a strong spiritual dimension as well.  According to material that they have created, there will be “a special emphasis on repentance, spiritual awakening, and love for God and one’s neighbors”…

    Each center will be a warehouse and also a training venue. We will place a special emphasis on repentance, spiritual awakening, and love for God and one’s neighbors. At the philosophical core of this training, we will address the principles of government power, explaining that the river of government begins at the spring of individual virtue and flows downhill to family, church, community, county, state, and Federal levels. We will show that our future must rely on local self-sufficiency.

Magnuson and Hill have taken a lot of criticism for what they are trying to do, but at least they are taking action, which is much more than can be said for the majority of the “coach potato activists” that are out there these days.

When Noah was warned that a great flood was coming, he and his sons started building a boat the size of a World War II aircraft carrier even though nobody had ever seen a flood of that magnitude before.  It took them many, many years to complete the project, and the relentless mocking that they had to endure must have been very painful, but in the end they were the ones that survived.

And when Joseph learned that seven good years would be followed by seven years of famine, he didn’t sit back and party for the seven good years.  Instead, he instituted the greatest emergency food storage program that the world had ever seen during the seven good years, and by taking bold action he saved the entire nation of Egypt, the entire nation of Israel and the bloodline of the Messiah.

Radical faith almost always involves taking radical action, and this is something that I cover extensively in Get Prepared Now.  Sadly, there is so much complacency out there right now, but the truth is that this is the exact time when we should be prepping more than ever before because time is running out.

Of course there are many that do understand these things, and one of the ways this is manifesting itself is in a mass exodus out of the major cities.  In previous articles I have discussed the large numbers of people that are moving away from California and away from major cities in the upper Midwest, and earlier today I came across a Daily Mail story that talked about how nearly a million people have left New York over the last six years…

    Almost 1 million people have fled the New York area in the last six years, the highest rate of any major metropolitan area in the country.

    Between April 2010 and July 2016 a net total of 902,000 domestic migrants left the New York metropolitan area, census data shows.

    That number was head and shoulders above Chicago, the second-biggest loser with 409,000 more people leaving than arriving in the same period.

If you feel called to move to a different area of the country, it will be far easier to do it now while things are still relatively stable.

Several months ago, I wrote about the multitudes of Americans that have felt led to relocate to the Great Northwest.  Whenever my wife and I encounter newcomers, we like to ask them why they decided to move.  In almost every instance, they tell us that they felt called to come to this part of the United States, and some of the stories that we have heard are quite extraordinary.

If you don’t want to get prepared for what is coming to America, that is fine, but at least don’t jump on everyone else that is trying to do something.  These days there are so many people that love to spend much of their time throwing filth at others, and that doesn’t accomplish anything.

So if you are completely convinced that the United States is moving into a new golden era of peace and prosperity even though everything around us is indicating otherwise, then just keep on doing what you have been doing.

But as for me and my house, we are going to heed the warnings, and like Magnuson and Hill we are going to do what we can to thrive during the incredibly challenging times that are coming.
