Prepper News Brief 1/6/2017

1.) He is little twit right up until the end of his term – Obama Awards Himself Distinguished Public Service Medal!

2.) Four blacks in custody after mentally disabled white man tied up, tortured on Facebook Live: Kidnappers yelled “F*** Trump!” and “F*** white people!” Mainstream media says not a hate crime. I bet if it had been four whites who did the same to a black man they would be screaming hate crime at every outlet… why is it that only white people can commit a hate crime?

Update – they have been now charged with a hate crime, but they probably won’t be convicted of a hate crime but only kidnapping and assault.

3.) Intel report says terrorists scrap large-scale plots for stealth solo attacks: A confidential government report says terrorist groups such as the Islamic State have all but abandoned trying to put together huge plots such as the Sept. 11 attacks and warns counterterrorism agencies of a “new landscape” where lone killers strike and massacre quickly thanks to the digital age.

4.) Record snowfall in Idaho keeps schools closed, side roads daunting: Makes me glad to be in The Redoubt of the East.

5.) Scientists warn: Super volcano has reached critical phase: Campi Flegrei is one of world’s most dangerous super volcanoes, and now scientists warn that it has reached critical phase and could erupt, which would mean apocalyptic consequences. The result of such large amounts of dust, ash and gas in the atmosphere are equivalent to a so-called nuclear winter: Damaged crops, food shortages, poisoning and general societal collapse.

6.) A zombie outbreak could come close to wiping out humanity in 100 days: Scientists reveal their tips to survive: Zombies could exterminate humanity in less than six months, according to recent research.

7.) Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions rock South America leading to fears BIG ONE is coming: A SPATE of earthquakes in Peru coupled with strong volcanic activity in the South American country has led to fears that devastating seismic activity could be on its way.

8.) The Elite Are Pushing For A Lights Out Scenario

9.) Lights Out: A Cyberattack, A Nation Unprepared, Surviving the Aftermath: Imagine a blackout lasting not days, but weeks or months. Tens of millions of people over several states are affected. For those without access to a generator, there is no running water, no sewage, no refrigeration or light. Food and medical supplies are dwindling. Devices we rely on have gone dark. Banks no longer function, looting is widespread, and law and order are being tested as never before.

10.) Will a U.S. Economic Collapse Happen in 2017?: The economic forecast for 2017 is more than bleak, and there is more than enough economic data out there to show there could be a U.S. economic collapse in 2017. Despite trillions of dollars in quantitative easing, the U.S. economy remains fragile, and not even the euphoria, hype, and optimism around President-elect Donald J. Trump will be able to resuscitate what President Obama left him.

  1. I think an economic collapse is the most likely SHTF situation. It is the one we should be prepping or planning for. I don’t know when it will happen, 2017 looks likely but so didn’t 2016. Who knows when. But it will happen the only unknowns are when, how bad and how long will it last. Food, PMs, a plan to heat and cook without expensive utilities, a plan to grow your own food and to be able to can your harvest and a plan to pay your debts or to be debt free. I think the biggest problem for most families in a Great Depression deja vu will be keeping their home. If you have a $1000 a month mortgage payment on top of ongoing housing expenses and you are out of work for 10 years more than likely your home will be repossessed. Pm’s can help or even fix this problem depending on how much you have. But owning your home outright is the best solution. Time may be short. Do you have a plan?

  3. #2 I heard BO on the radio last night. He said, this crime was cause by… you guessed it, whitey and his racism. If he was referring to the “War on Poverty”, that has enslaved millions of black people, I agree.
    #8 The X 22 Report, is once again, spot-on. Big Power only wants more power (control over people). It’s only normal. #10 For a 2017 economic collapse; I would rather be ready years too early than seconds too late.Please, stay strong and healthy.

  4. # 10
    All the things to support an economic collapse/meltdown appear to be lining up . They are not lined up because of some coincidence but by planning .The ruling elite are control motivated and through money control they gain people control.

    Most Americans have meager , if any , cash savings set aside.
    Most Americans are in debt beyond their means .True inflation seems to be around 7%-10% . About 47 million folks recieve welfare payments in the U.S.A. Job growth with good wages is dismal . Several pension plans are having difficulty paying out what was promised . National debt has skyrocketed beyond our ability to visualize the size of it or to pay it off.

    Interesting times are upon us .Will it be a gradual slide or a cataclysmic explosion . None of us in the peasant class know , we can only speculate .
    Be alert to your surroundings , get out of as much debt as you possibly can . Put essentials aside for you and your family .
    Grace & Peace to all
