Good morning pack! I hope you all are having a good one… :sun:
Over the past couple of days, I’ve received a number of emails from blog readers regarding this post “National Guard Whistleblower: “Doomsday Preppers Will Be Treated As Terrorists” that was published on Prison Planet on October 25.
Most of those emailing were concerned that the National Guard would be coming for them because they had purchased extra canned foods, raised a garden or own a gun. After all the article said, that they have a list compiled of all these doomsday preppers and were going to go after them in the aftermath of a disaster.
Well folks to be honest, I’ve never looked at the “news” spewed forth over at the Prison Planet site as concrete or reliable. So I started doing a little digging to see if I could find any real proof of truth to this. After all, I don’t see a mention of any reliable sources in the article only a mention of a “whistle-blower” referred to as “Soldier X”.
Now I don’t know about you but I don’t believe everything that I read and less than that if it originated from Alex Jones or Prison Planet. So I started digging for proof. Well guess what – I found none. :-/
I’ve contacted all of my sources that keep track and fact check stuff like this and they say, that the whole story is just that, a story and that the briefing “Soldier X” mentions never happened. So, next I get in my truck and set out down the road to talk to every member of the TN and KY National Guard that I know. With one guardsman being an E9 they all said; that the whole thing was and is BS and that they had never heard of or attended any such briefing..
Next, I sent emails to every guardsman in the country, that I’m in contact with through this blog asking if they had been to or heard of such a briefing and they all said that they had not.
Folks this one looks like another made-up story meant to start a buzz among preppers and to get links and traffic back to their web-page. This reminds me of the “Mormon Cannery Raid in TN a Fabrication” that we posted about here last year that caused Oathkeepers.org to recant their story.
Folks, this is The Survivalist Blog.net and we are the Wolf Pack – we prep based on fact and real threats, not conspiracy theories or stories based on the “report” of Soldier X or that of some other vague “source”.
