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.

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...

The deadly strain of hemorrhagic fever has reportedly already spread to neighboring Sierra Leone and Liberia.
