Preventing The Apocalypse: Experts Plan Asteroid Early Warning System

The threat of an asteroid colliding with Earth is a real danger, as indicated by a large fireball and explosion over Chelyabinsk, Russia, in early 2013. An early warning asteroid strategies report has been released. The report has been released as a public document following a workshop hosted by Secure World Foundation in September. However, the workshop results have yet to be reviewed by the International Asteroid Warning Network (IAWN)’s Steering Committee, or endorsed or adopted for implementation. Sergio Camacho, a workshop participant who...

The Recession Is Coming: Economist Warns It’s Beyond Control: “I Don’t See What Will Save It At This Point”

We are on the verge of another recession. So says Shadow Stats economist John Williams, who warns that by the end of July it will become apparent to all Americans. That’s when the government will release its latest GDP economic figures and according to Williams those numbers, combined with revisions for the first quarter of 2014, will show negative economic growth for a second quarter in a row, the official definition for recession. In an interview with Greg Hunter’s USA Watchdog, Williams explains that it all boils down to one critical...

Preparedness Planning

Many times, as preppers, we tend to focus on long-term food storage, bug out bags and survival equipment, and all thestuff associated with prepping- which is important- but we don’t always spend as much time and consideration into planning and creating multiple contingency plans for whatever situation may occur. All the canned food and stockpiled ammo in the world will do very little good without a plan on what to do when they become essential to survival. Hope for the Best, Prepare for the Worst This may seem elementary in the extreme (of course...

Today’s Positive Post For April 17th, 2014

I have been kicking this idea around. We get so caught up with discussing how to prepare for this, that, and the other. It seems that most preparedness discussions concentrate on negative events that we plan for and there is little to no positivity in the conversation. So I thought we should try to change that. Starting today, we will try to post at least one “Positive Post” per day. Our goal is to hopefully put a smile on one of our readers’ face or maybe help someone who is having a crappy day. Believe it or not, this is therapeutic...

Is Your Home Really Secure? *Video*

If you are like me, you go through a lockdown routine every evening by making sure all doors and windows are locked. All exterior lighting is on and there is nothing out of place outside. This almost seems ritualistic. If you don’t do something like this, I believe the video below might help you change your mind. When I mention security, I am not only talking about during a time of emergency, I am referencing everyday life. Some folks live in nice neighborhoods and feel, “nothing like that will ever happen here”, this is a false...

Pennsylvania Teen Convicted Of A Crime For Recording Bullies At School

Editors Note: Every school should have a zero tolerance for bullying. We do! The bullies sometimes grow up to be the undesirables you could meet during an emergency. The school administration and school police should be a safe haven for a student to go to in the event they are being bullied. The school in this article, the police, and the judge should not only be ashamed of themselves, but should also be held accountable for their acts of negligence. Please take a moment and spread this article on the Internet. This is worth bringing attention to...

Borders On Lock Down as Ebola Spreads: We Will Lose Many People *Video*

One of the world’s most terrifying viruses is multiplying. Thus far at least 70 people have died from the Ebola virus in Guinea in recent weeks and though officials have taken steps to shut down the country’s border it may already be too late. The deadly strain of hemorrhagic fever has reportedly already spread to neighboring Sierra Leone and Liberia. The virus is normally acquired as a result of the butchering of or consumption of meat from bats or monkeys, which has prompted Guinea’s government to issue a ban on, among other things, the...
