Ask anyone about saving money or living frugally and you’ll ALWAYS get an answer. It’s just one of those things that everyone seems to have an opinion of! However, you soon realize most of these tips are something you already knew or just variations of them.
Today, I want to give you a few tips and tricks to frugal living that (hopefully) you haven’t heard before. They are all related to prepping and survival so you’re not going to find trivial advice such as “don’t buy MREs, make your own and save money” since everyone knows that. So let’s get started… Read More

Financial analysts and preppers that are in tune to the systemic corruption of the banking and political systems are encouraging people to get out of debt and into hard assets and sustainable living practices. For hard assets, this includes storing food, water, clothing, firearm protection and other materials. For debt, it includes paying off college tuition, credit card, car loans and mortgage debt. Nothing sounds bad about that right? Getting out of debt and being self reliant is something that is hard to find fault with.
However, as I explore the theories of how the system might implode, I’ve found that one of the above solutions may not be a solution at all… Read More

If you are even the slightest bit aware of the financial calamity we are in with a debt based currency system, exploding world-wide debt, a rigged stock market, and teetering derivatives, you’re probably a little bit uncomfortable with your 401k retirement plan. The 2008 crash was just a glimpse of what is to come in the future as our problems have not been solved but amplified. How are we ever suppose to protect ourselves when we come to an age where we cannot work as efficiently as we once did? Read More

When our monetary system collapses, what will the mass of people default to for “money”? Some people say that it will default to cash; some say cryptocurrency (bitcoin); some say silver and gold; and some say that all hell is going to break loose and your best bet is to barter (if it’s even safe to).
Which one is right? Perhaps it will be a blend of each. Like any wise investment professional says, never have all your eggs in one basket. You need to diversify that with which “may” be considered “good money”. Read More

The Telegraph – Dollar Smashes through resistance as mega-rally gathers pace: 11/3/14
“Hans Redeker, from Morgan Stanley, said the dollar rally is almost unstoppable at this stage given the roaring US recovery, and the stark contrast between a hawkish Fed and the prospect of monetary stimulus for years to come in Europe.”
After reading that, I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit…honestly. Read More

Ever been in a debate with someone on whether precious metals such as gold and silver constitute real wealth? More than likely, you may have heard the anti-metals people say, “You can’t eat gold.” However, I am a firm believer in holding precious metals. Let me outline how the “common-man” prepper should approach precious metals as there are several stipulations.

Recent events over the past year with regards to wide scale cyber attacks should have you worried. If they have not, perhaps you have a false sense of security.. Here’s just a couple of the top hacks that have hit the US: Read More

As you explore survival community topics, you’ll find a wide variety of situations including economic collapse, viral epidemics, solar EMPs, etc. With each situation, people are preparing in a variety of ways. The one scenario that has the most credible evidence by experts throughout the field is economic collapse. While people are preparing by storing food, water, and other essentials, I see “bugging out” as an incredibly popular topic…but how practical is it? In this article, I explore some more practical considerations as to what an economic collapse will be, and why bugging out may not be a reality until later stages of the collapse.

“Real” unemployment figures in the United States are approximately 25% as opposed to the “official” government projection of approximately 7%. While those individuals are now unfortunately dependent on government assistance to survive, those that have a job are not doing any better. The definition of stagflation is simply a combination of stagnant income wages vs. rising price inflation of everything you buy. Recognize through this article that the Federal Reserve (and banks) have inherently created this situation by design and that it is exponentially worse through their Quantitative Easing (QE) program.

As the global economy fails due to heinous banking practices, bankers are devising more and more ways to extract money from people’s pockets. These events are happening faster than before, and the scope of who it applies to is increasing as well. Will these practices happen in the good ol’ USA? My answer…most definitely yes. It may not be the exact sample mechanism of action for wealth extraction, but wealth extraction nonetheless will occur:

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them, will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.“ – Thomas Jefferson
The quote from Thomas Jefferson is spot on when we look at today’s economy. It’s a different time, but the same old (and effective) game the bankers are playing. Take a look at this article – Mergers, acquisitions across the globe highest in 7 years. I can personally relate to this article as I’ve worked for several large corporate entities. The last one that I left has gone through 4 acquisitions in the last 3 years…simply being thrown around like chop liver between the highest bidders. What is happening here?

Did you know that the US Government cannot create its own currency and it must borrow every dollar?
Did you know the Federal Reserve is not part of the US government and is privately owned?
Did you know that this system is actively robbing all US citizens of their wealth, liberty and prosperity?
The goal of this article is to make individuals aware of a monetary system that is working against them. This article will not attempt to describe all the mechanisms of the monetary system as there is an abundance of information already present throughout the internet. It is your duty to educate yourself further so you can prepare yourself and educate others. Once you are aware, you can prepare.
