Have you ever asked a person why they work? If you have the answer will likely end with a statement that they need to pay for stuff. It’s a truism in the world we live in that you must pay for many of the things we need. Its this need to pay for more and more stuff that leads to the need for higher paying jobs.
This perceived need leads many to seek jobs they do not necessarily like but need to achieve this end result. The race for the almighty buck has many unintended consequences. It has been said that if you do not like your work, you will not like anything else about your life.
The pursuit of money leaves many people with a hollow void that is never filled and causes them to lash out at society in their discomfort. This is seen in the many cases of domestic abuse, road rage and general lack of politeness in society. In many cases the more the person makes, the more likely you are to see these traits.
What is missing in many peoples lives is the personal satisfaction they get from the feeling of accomplishment of something every day. The more personal satisfaction a person gets out of life, the more likely they are to be a happy person and in turn treat others with respect. This also helps to insure a healthy life that avoids many of the ailments that come with having a foul mood most of the day.
The feeling of accomplishment can come from very little things such as building or repairing something. Some of my most cherished accomplishments are things I did for free. Knowing I did something that had some value and served a purpose meant a lot to me personally. Doing that and making some money at the same time is just icing on the cake.
This is something many people in our fast moving world miss out on and it can cost them in the end. As society gets faster and money becomes the primary commodity in life, people can lose their self worth and determination. This is evident when something happens and they suddenly have no money to continue their current lifestyle. Money has replaced personal satisfaction as the cement that holds society together. When the money supply finally gives out, society will fall apart.
Having money is great because it allows you to do many things you could not do otherwise but it should not be the foundation of your existence. How many people have gotten divorced because of monetary problems? How many people have refused to get involved with someone else because they did not meet up to their monetary expectations?
Money has become all too important in society and when it goes away during economic crisis society cannot handle it. If you have a spouse that just says, don’t worry we can manage, after you have lost your job and have very little money to live on then they get it. They are saying their personal happiness does not depend on money to give them the personal satisfaction in life that they require.
This is the missing ingredient that the American society needs to get through the trying times ahead and we no longer have it. If we do not find it soon, the days ahead will be very miserable and very destructive as society tears itself apart searching to fill the void left by the destruction of money. When you can go day to day without money and feel happy about life, you are at a place that will allow you to get through most bad events in the right frame of mind. That frame of mind is what you need to solve the problems at hand and move on with your life. The lack of it will cause us to self destruct.

With so much going on these days it is difficult to keep focused on any one problem. Economic collapse, Fukushima radiation, drought, peak energy, WWIII, pandemic, famine, illegal immigration, government coverups and abuse and natural disasters are just some of the many threats we have to keep up with. With so many threats facing us it is impossible to focus on each one and hope to overcome them all. We need to try to keep our eye on the bigger picture and focus on getting through the events with some of our resources in tact so we can carry on. Being prepared is good but it means nothing if you do not make it to the other side in tact. That is the larger goal. To get through whatever comes in tact.
Many of the crises we face have many things in common. They can destroy the economy, cause shortages in energy or food, destroy freedoms, cause harm to our health, destroy security, make the future uncertain, destroy wealth and destroy hope. These are the things we need to focus on rather than individual problems. These things encompass the big picture. By focusing on the outcome of the events, we can protect ourselves from multiple possible events at once. We do not prepare for the events themselves, we prepare for the problems they cause.
One crisis that ties into many others is the turmoil in the Middle East.
The rise of ISIS in the region is no surprise to some. As with many things today, it was planned. There has been no serious attempt to stop this group because of the players backing them. Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and the U.S. are the forces pushing this group forward. It is natural for one to ask, why would the U.S. be backing a group like this. To answer that question you must also answer the question of why members of the Muslim Brotherhood have been given senior level positions within the U.S. government.
When ISIS moved into Iraq, there was no effort by the U.S. to stop them. And even now, the U.S. is only making feeble efforts to do anything. That is because the U.S. government does not want to stop them. When ISIS moved into Iraq, they were able to push the Iraqi army back with ease. This is largely due to the fact that almost all of the Iraqi officers the U.S. trained before we left were fired by the Iraqi government. These officers were replaced with political appointees by the government. When the attacks came, these leaders, lacking sufficient military training, fled leaving the army with no one to organize a defense.
This terrorist group now has some of the best equipment that America has in its’ arsenal. This is equipment that the U.S. gave to Iraq and they left behind when they fled the approaching enemy. Some of this equipment was supposed to go to the Kurds but it did not for political reasons. All we need to do is give the Kurds the equipment they need to defend themselves and this threat in the region will largely be stopped but that will not happen in any significant way.
If the minimal attacks on ISIS continue and the Christian refugees are allowed to slip through to relative safety and then the U.S. declares victory and stops the attacks, it will be a tell tale sign that the American government has no intention of stopping ISIS. I do not expect the American government to do anything significant to stop this group.
When you look at this and look at the current situation in the U.S. the government actions of the past few years seem deliberate. With over 200 senior officers fired in the U.S. in the past few years and more now scheduled, it is becoming obvious that the government is trying to decapitate the leadership of the U.S. military for some reason. The remaining senior leadership are those largely loyal to the government rather than the most dedicated and most experienced . This appears to be the same thing that has happened in Iraq. It also happened in the Soviet Union just before WWII when thousands of officers were purged from the military and that almost lost them the war. The only difference is that any vacuum of leadership in the U.S. will be met by the junior officers and NCOs taking charge as U.S. soldiers do. Any crisis in the U.S. may be initially chaotic but the junior leaders would step up and get control of the situation and many of these soldiers would uphold their oath.
This is why the military must be deployed out of the U.S. before any serious attempt to move against the constitution and the people. It is only my opinion but I think ISIS has been allowed to build up and will continue to get stronger so that a credible threat will arise in the region that requires the deployment of large numbers of the U.S. military back to the region. This will get these loyal troops out of the U.S. and open the door for federal agencies to do as they please. I also believe that once our troops are in the region they will be abandoned to their own fate while events unfold in the U.S. I think it is possible this may begin in early 2015. Again, this is only my opinion.
Why would all of this be done by the U.S. government? It is no secret that the current occupant of the White House thinks of the U.S as a Muslim nation and I believe that is exactly what they will try to do with it once all resistance is crushed. The barbarism and murder we now see in Iraq directed at the Christians there will happen here as well when the time is right. I may be wrong and I hope for America I am wrong but the situation seems to be heading in that direction. I also believe the Muslin Brotherhood is using the liberals in the U.S. to achieve this goal. The liberals think they are using the Muslims for their agenda but once conservative Americans are out of the way the liberals will be targeted as well. That is the bigger picture as I see it. Muslim nations are authoritarian for the most part and that is where the U.S. is heading. The globalists may be pushing us towards a North American Union but that is not to say it will remain a democratic or largely Christian one. A good time to take down a population is when they are struggling to understand and deal with a multitude of crises allowing an aggressor to gain the upper hand.
The main thing that stands in the way of this type of future are the millions of combat veterans in America, many of whom are armed at this time. The other thing that is an impediment to this type of situation is awareness which is possessed by too few Americans at this time. The willingness to accept what is happening as reality and the will to prepare for it are the things to keep in focus as the future plays itself out.

All of the recent reports about the VA show one thing very clearly. The majority of the problems relate to employee incompetence and indifference. This is what happens when employee benefits and working conditions are held in higher regard than the treatment of veterans which is the only purpose of the institution. This is what happens when you hire workers that have contempt for the country and veterans in particular and the system refuses to hold them accountable. In this situation, merely replacing the men at the top will do nothing because they will still rely on the same people at the bottom.
Here is a very practical solution that would solve the problem with civilian employees. Get rid of the civilians and hire active duty military personnel to fill the slots. Every branch of the military has occupational specialties that encompass all of the necessary skills to treat veterans and run the system.
The VA has its own budget and locations across the nation. It should be treated just like another branch of the military. Persons that enlist in the four branches of the military and have completed at least one enlistment or tour successfully and have job skills that can be utilized at the VA should be able to reenlist for the VA just as they now can reenlist for other branches of the military. These persons would then be able to finish out their military career with the VA if they wish.
By having the VA staffed by military personnel it would eliminate the excessive pay and bonuses that their civilian counterparts now demand and get. It would also eliminate the sometimes excessive civil service retirement pay they get.
The use of active duty personnel would guarantee accountability due to the military structure that demands it.
Active duty personnel would be more inclined to go the extra mile to help veterans than civilians who have never served in the armed forces.
Active duty personnel would be more in tune to the needs of veterans and would speak the language veterans are familiar with.
The active duty military and VA system would be able to provide seamless support to one another in emergency situations where medical personnel are in short supply.
The head of the VA should be a General with a medical background that would have to be accountable to the veterans.
Any veterans that need special services that cannot be provided by the VA system could receive a voucher for use at civilian medical facilities.
While this may not seen like the perfect solution it would be a dramatic improvement over what we have now. I say that as someone that has used the VA system. I don’t want to put all of the current employees at the VA in the same category. There are some very dedicated people there that do care but they are few and far between. This would also provide more jobs for veterans that desperately need one. This system would provide the needed medical treatment for veterans that is now becoming too expensive even for civilians due to the new healthcare mandates. The veterans have earned this benefit no less than the police and firemen that receive greater pay and benefits than the military that has risked so much for this nation over the years. The veterans deserve a system that is operated for their best interest and is not skimping on services due to outside agendas.

As I mentioned in a previous article, we are being overwhelmed with one crisis after another in rapid fire succession. This is meant to keep everyone off balance and prevent any meaningful defense by the population. Before we can react to one crisis another rears its ugly head and diverts our attention causing many to ignore the recent crisis for the new one. Its all planned that way.
So how do we defeat this plan? We cannot fight every crisis with the hope of winning. We can only try to see the bigger picture and build a wall that can keep the problems far enough away from us to carry on with our own agenda.
The final protective line that we have to protect ourselves is the right to bear arms. Without this, we have no defenses against those who mean to destroy what we now have. That being said, the right to bear arms is not necessarily the ground we need to hold in and of itself.
The most logical place to draw our line is at the county line. This creates an area small enough to defend from many different threats but large enough to enable life to continue as we wish. The ability to control the county government and the position of sheriff is where Americans need to circle the wagons.
The ability to control the local government gives the community the ability to resist any state and federal regulations and laws they see as a threat to their well being. The ability to decide what regulations to implement in the community can preserve and protect individual and property rights from outside interests that wish to destroy them. The sheriff provides the legitimate law enforcement authority within the county that can stop the enforcement of destructive policies by outside enforcers working against the community.
But why the county level? This is the last line of defense against outside forces before they get to your front door. Local government is the only level that has daily contact with those it works for and can feel the ire of taxpayers immediately and directly. By controlling the county government and sheriff, communities provide themselves with an island of sanity that they control. The county community has the ability to produce at least some of the necessities they need such as food. They have the benefit of collective security in the form of a police department and services such as medical and fire. They have the ability to utilize an alternative local currency. The community has the benefit of drawing on the skills of the community as a whole.
While most states have diverse groups that can lean left or right and tend to pull against one another, individual counties tend to have a majority of one or the other making a consensus much easier. Those leaning left will likely seek government control and solutions to problems while those leaning right will have more individualistic tendencies that steer them toward local solutions and control. It is the right of center counties that hold the best hope of maintaining a functional economy and society when the system fails in some way. Conservative communities also tend to hold more traditional values that help to maintain law and order during emergencies. The majority of liberals hold the idea that almost nothing is taboo and this allows them to be opportunists and do bad things that society holds as wrong but they see as justified leading to a breakdown in law and order many times.
It is for these reasons that the more conservative counties need to be the ground that is held against those seeking to radically change the nation. Keep in mind the problem-reaction-solution plan that the radicals in the U.S. now use to implement their agenda. By denying the radical elements a foothold in your county you will maintain individual and property rights to a larger degree. From a county level you have a legal structure to fight off unwanted attacks on liberties and freedoms that those in some circles wish to obliterate for the greater good.
This is one of the things you need to look at where you live or intend to go. You need to determine if the residents in this area are right of center and willing to defend their rights as individuals. It is in these areas that you stand the best chance to hold the line against radical change that will undermine yours and future generations.
One only needs to look at progressive areas of the country and see the governments and taxpayers being bled to death by these liberal ideas. They constantly call for more taxes and more government subsidies to maintain the system. They expect someone else to solve the inherent problems with the system as it is as they continue the status quo. The free flow of money is the only thing that keeps these areas together in good times and in desperate times when the cash flow stops they have no plan to fall back on except brute force and tyrannical rule. It is for these reasons that these locations must be abandoned to their ultimate fate.
The only way to insure stability in the future when the system breaks down is for the county institutions to be independent from outside funding sources. This requires the takeover of local government by those that understand the threat and are willing to take measures to reduce the potential damage in the crisis to come. It will depend on these people to educate the community and determine a course of action to limit the damage from a crumbling system.
Dangers are imbedded into county functions by the radical globalists on the left and the right. They make the local government dependant on outside money just as they make the individual dependant on government supports and once this takes root, it is difficult to end just as drug addicts find it difficult to stop the habit that is slowly killing them. The dealer owns the addict just as radical government entities own the recipients of government money. They know this and is the reason they fight tooth and nail to continue funding programs that do more harm than good and prove to be wasteful.
While this article deals mainly with the physical world there is another realm that must go hand in hand with these actions. Those that believe in something can endure far longer than those that believe in nothing. The ultimate victory will only happen when those who wage the good fight have made their peace with God and carry his word in their heart and wear his resolve as armor. Victory in the end must encompass the return to traditional values and rejection of the perverted lifestyles and pure evil institutions we have created. The physical land that is defended must also encompass Christian values if we are to have any future.
This is the ground that must be defended at all costs to insure the constitutional principles that made us cohesive and prosperous will continue in the future. When you ask what power an individual county can hope to wield you only need to remember this tidbit from history.
North Carolina, May 20, 1775
Mecklenburg today became the first county in America to declare its independence from Britain. The safety committee of Mecklenburg, formed to carry out the will of the Continental Congress, took this radical step in response to the British attack on colonists in Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts, last month. The committee called for the election of military officers, declared all colonial constitutions void and said that any person who accepted an office from the crown was an “enemy to his country.”
History may not repeat but it does rhyme. The county level of government is where people can make the most difference in the final outcome. Enough counties can control the state, and enough states can control the national government. This is the battle ground. This is where we need to circle the wagons and dig in for the fight that is to come and if it ends in failure at least you can say you did your best.

Many people feel WWIII is looming closer. For those in North America the next world war is well under way but it will not be exactly what they had planned on. The mass of humanity crossing the southern U.S. border is nothing less than a Third World war being waged on the first world countries of America and Canada.
This is all part of the planned North American Union that will be forced on the citizens of those countries. Prosperous citizens have the means to protect their rights but impoverished citizens can only beg for government assistance or flee to some other place.
The elimination of the southern U.S. border has allowed many thousands of illegal aliens from all over South and Central America to come here in hopes of a better life. The influx will continue and increase substantially before it stops. To eliminate any resistance to a North American Union, America and Canada will be destroyed economically and socially to make subjugation easier.
With too many poor to care for, government services will break down and stop. The nation will be destroyed economically and socially to the point of no longer functioning. An outside institution such as the UN with outside backing will come in to stabilize the situation and take control. Once they are here they will never leave. Any rights you now have will be redefined by this group according to their standards.
Citizens of Canada should take notice of what is happening to their south because it will eventually happen there too. Third world dictators will continue to send their poor north to eliminate discourse among their people and make it someone elses problem.
It has been decided that instead of raising the living standards of the poor to the south, the living standards of those to the north will be lowered. It will continue until the masses beg for government to ease their suffering. They will willingly give up all of their rights for the promise of relief. They will get little relief and only more misery as time goes on.
The collusion between the government, the bankers, the drug cartels, government agencies and international interests are combining to deliver a lethal blow to the freedoms and prosperity we now take for granted. These groups want America to be completely destroyed for their own nefarious purposes. They have a plan and it is now unfolding before us.
Just like in the movie Force Ten From Navarone, where the enemy has discovered they intend to blow up the bridge so they reinforce it, but the men change their plan and they decide to blow up the dam above the bridge and let the water undermine the structure of the bridge and destroy it. This is the type of war we are now fighting. The enemy will do things to undermine our structure without directly attacking it in order to do us in.
This is the third world war that will destroy America. When the money changers have absolute control of their new North American Union they will finally have the utopia they have sought for themselves. The utopia the masses were expecting will never come. This will educate the masses to what socialism really is but they will learn this lesson too late to do anything about it.
Another war will tear the Middle East apart probably with nuclear weapons but by then Americans will be too preoccupied with daily survival to care. It is all in the cards and this will likely come to pass. The invading armies that many Americans fear will one day come are here now. Many of the soldiers are smaller and younger than expected but that will change with time. It will only take a few years for these potential soldiers to grow into adults that will be recruited to help subjugate the continent. Some of the first wave are already trained and financed by the drug cartels. Gangs working with the drug cartels and the government are even now being pre-positioned for future operations against Americans. MS-13 and other gang members will be on one side with DHS on the other and helpless Americans caught in the middle of this pincer move.
For those preparing to survive what may come in the future, this is truly a nightmare scenario and that is exactly how it will unfold. The fighting that will likely take place on this continent in the near future will be bloody and those that survive it will be hard pressed to retain their humanity. The illegals are flooding in, the UN is pre-positioning equipment and DHS has armed all of its agencies to the teeth. Once enough illegals have arrived and been dispersed around the country all that is needed to begin the next phase is a trigger event. The diseases that these illegals carry may be just such an event.
The reasoning for all of the current scandals is simple. The best way to take down the enemy is to overwhelm him and prevent any meaningful defense from him. Middle class Americans are the new enemy. This is what is happening in America right now. We are being overwhelmed with one crisis after another to prevent Americans from forming any type of defense against the transformation taking place in this country that will destroy the social structure we depend on to insure prosperity and stability.
Only if enough Americans realize the nature of what is happening and form a basic defensive strategy will they be able to defend themselves against what is to come. It will be impossible to fight every battle in every location and expect to win. Only when we pick a piece of ground and decide to defend it at all costs will we have any chance of success. That is to say we must decide what battle is the most important and put everything into that to have any hope of victory. Its time to pick our ground and circle the wagons and prepare to defend it to the end. Victory belongs to the most committed.

It hurts to think it. It hurts to say it. But there it is. We have passed the point of no return as a nation and only something drastic and destructive will change things. The nation continues to be bled to death by a social class that not only consumes more than they produce but also more than others produce as well. The massive misallocation of wealth by these people is like a parasite sucking its host dry.
This class of people is incapable and unwilling to be educated on the destruction they are causing. They are blind to the fact that the free ride must end sometime. Their only understanding of economics is the amount of the check they receive every month.
The entitlement class does not care that they are killing the goose that lays the golden eggs. And just to be clear, the entitlement class exists at both ends of the spectrum. The very poor and the very rich are equally guilty. The financial pressure felt by our economy, and the middle class producers, is causing it to shrink. As business owners get squeezed they lay off employees to cope with tighter budgets. These actions reduce the tax base that provides the core of entitlement spending. As these people demand more, they are reducing the profits of the business class and reducing spendable income among the working class. At some point this will end as the economy seizes up and stalls.
Only after this happens will the purge of the entitlement class begin. Those that have nothing to offer the economy will wither and die as the resources they need are cut off. It will be loud. It will be messy. It will be bloody. But it must happen at some point in order to purge the system of all of the fat that has built up over the years and caused the lifeblood of the nation to stop flowing.
It is not only an economic war these people wage on this nation but a moral one as well. The excesses these people feel a right to is a result of a deeper rooted problem. They lack the moral underpinnings that have been the foundation of this nation for four hundred years. The intolerance and obscene lifestyle they live has resulted in the destruction of a nation that was created from scratch by godly people to become the world leader and most prosperous in history.
The moral values embedded in this nation were the bedrock that maintained a stable family life and provided the seeds of greatness. These seeds have been slowly poisoned over the years and now the bitter fruits of entitlement are all we are left with. If this nation is to survive and prosper once again it first must be cleansed of the essence of evil that has invaded it at every level.
There are those that reflect on bible prophecy and note the apparent absence of America in the last days according to prophecy. This may be by design and it may be for our benefit when the world is turned upside down. In any WWIII scenario where America is still a major power, it is unlikely we would not be involved in the fighting and not be spared total destruction from nuclear weapons in an all out war. The lingering effects of radioactive contamination would be devastating for years to come. It would make survival and rebuilding difficult if not impossible for the few survivors. If America were embroiled in an internal struggle when WWIII gets under way, it would likely preclude any serious involvement by America and save America from any serious long term destruction from nuclear weapons. We would be a mere backwater and sideshow to the larger conflagration going on in the world.
The festering scabs that entail modern society must be removed before the healing can begin. According to a prophecy by George Washington, America will be invaded and destroyed in what he termed the third great peril. There would be a great struggle against superior forces and eventually victory and peace would return to America after the intervention of heaven. No town, village or city will remain standing in the wake of this conflict. This will be the great cleansing of America in the future if prophecy is correct.
According to the fourth turning, things will get continuously worse until they peak around 2020. As such, Americans should plan for a lengthy period of destruction and deprivation lasting from about 2014 until about 2025. This is the time horizon for short term survival.
It is bound to happen at some point and we should be asking not if it should happen but what we can each do to stay out of the way and insure we are in a position after it happens to help rebuild a rational and sustainable nation again. Things such as our moral underpinnings and work ethic need to be reevaluated. The way we educate our children and conduct business needs to revert to proven systems that in the past helped build a strong nation. The ability to hold a stable medium of exchange that cannot be compromised by a chosen few must be restored. The rational use of our natural resources that provides a sustainable future needs to be explored.
The west line has moved to China and that means the epic growth America once experienced is gone and will never return to previous levels. We must now learn to live with a smaller more sane business model. Just as the nations before us lost the advantage as the west line passed them by, we too must now learn a new social dynamic to survive and prosper in the future. The only alternative is to be permanently impoverished and suffer from our shortcomings as a nation. This would insure the domination and manipulation by outside forces that would treat us as another third world nation to be mined of all resources.
Many times when a building is demolished, the best parts are salvaged to be used again in the new structure. The best parts of America need to be salvaged and used to rebuild a nation the people can once again be proud of. The removal of the sick, lame, lazy and corrupt is at hand and it will not be pretty. It is the normal course of nature to destroy and rebuild over time and our time has come. How we end up after this coming world disaster will depend entirely on us. It cannot be stopped, only dealt with at this point. Are you prepared for that?

The events of the day are not extraordinary or surreal but are repugnant to anyone who defends human rights. If we had a Republican president I would expect PETA to be out in force defending the helpless cattle but since it is a Democrats decision it must be ok. This is how things work in a feudal system.
This may not be a Bunker Hill or a Concord, but it will be a Newton Station if the federals have their way. This is a battle not just to flaunt raw power but to break the spirit of resistance inbred in most true Americans. If the federals are able to destroy all of Mr. Bundy’s cattle then simply get in their vehicles and drive away, they will have won the battle. They will have succeeded in once again showing Americans the federal government can do whatever it wants and not suffer any consequences.
If this was a simple case of denying use of federal lands to an individual, they could just as easily herd the cattle back to Mr. Bundy’s land and put up a fence. But that would not deprive Mr. Bundy of his livelihood and source of revenue. The destruction of his personal property and future ability to fight off the federal government will be insured by these actions. He would be forced out like the rest.
With actions come consequences. The federal government has the notion that their actions are immune from any significant consequences. If the federals are not prevented from removing these cattle from the area then there need to be consequences. The only consequences that they could suffer that would mean anything to them would be the prevention of any of them leaving the area in a vertical position or leaving in hand cuffs.
Since many people are defending the government actions because they are acting according to the law then the governments own rules should be used against them. Many states recognize many of their citizens as members of the unorganized militia according to their state constitution. This makes them military personnel. These legal militia members need to detain these government agents for terrorist actions under section 1021 of the NDAA. Under that provision these men can be detained indefinitely without charges. If the government does not think they have the authority they can take it to court. During the years it takes to go through the court system these men can rot in a jail cell.
Everyone hopes this situation will end in a peaceful way but if it does that means someone must lose this battle. Either Mr. Bundy will lose his cattle or the government will lose the grip of fear they have on the country. Someone will have to back down to have a peaceful settlement and I don’t see the federals doing that willingly.
If the people in Bunkerville do not prevent the removal of stolen cattle from their community they will be the defacto losers. That is what most people do not see. Many times the enemy will try your defenses to see what reaction they get. They will continue to push you more and more until they get a response. This tells them what they can do to you before you respond. That is what the federals are doing right now. They are constantly pushing Americans more every time they act to see where your line is drawn.
As Bismarck once said, the great questions of the day will be answered not with speeches or majority votes, but by blood and iron. If the people of America allow the government to get away with this scott free, they might as well pack up their resolve and go home and never utter another disrespectful word against their masters again.

Recent revelations from a Russian official have made the prospect of a Russian controlled Alaska a future possibility.
A recent article by Dave Hodges indicates that Putin may be planning to eventually take control of eastern Europe once again. If that happens the only viable move the U.S. could make would be to invade Syria and then Iran to prop up the petrodollar for a while longer. If the U.S. attempted that Russia would retaliate by invading Alaska. It is suggested that President Obama would make no effort to defend Alaska should this happen. Is that possible?
There are reports from Alaska natives that foreign troops are present in many towns in Alaska but no one knows why. For the past two decades the U.S. has moved toward giving several islands along with fishing rights and mineral resources near Alaska to Russia. There is currently a petition on the White House site to give Alaska back to Russia.
Russia seeks to be a world dominating power and in order for it to do that it needs more warm weather ports. That is why the Crimea is so important to them right now. Alaska would provide a good location for Pacific domination. The location and the mineral resources located there would be a boon for the Russian navy.
If Russia invades Alaska, what will the troops stationed there get in the way of help from the lower 48? The answer may be nothing. This may be the effects of the downfall of the dollar. An invasion of Alaska by Russian forces would provoke a violent backlash from the American public unless they are too preoccupied with feeding themselves to care. A collapse of the dollar just prior to such an event would get it little notice by most Americans as they fight for basic necessities that suddenly get cut off by hyperinflation or shutdown of the delivery system or both.
The recent positioning by Russia and China are leading to the probability that they will dump the dollar soon and cause unmitigated chaos in this nation. If that happens nothing is off the table as the U.S. will be in no position to continue overseas operations. This combined with possible cyber attacks on our banking system and power grid would almost guarantee infighting within the U.S as people scramble for supplies to survive. This is the worst case scenario for the U.S. and everything seems to be falling into place.
There are numerous military units in Alaska and they would be able to put up resistance for a while but without resupply and reinforcements they would be on borrowed time. The only unknown variable at this time is whether the military establishment would defy Washington and go to the aid of Alaska or just fall back and allow events to unfold. I know many of the lower ranks in the military would not want to sit idly by as this happens but without coordination from higher echelon commanders, any movement to aid Alaska would not be possible. This may be a highly unlikely scenario but I would advise military units in Alaska to be on alert for this possibility and have a fallback plan, just in case.
Given the corruption and possible treason being committed in Washington today by numerous elected officials, this is something we must be prepared to address in the future if events come to pass. As time goes on and events continue to unfold, the unlikely becomes more of a reality.

While I feel for the people in Ukraine, I know we need to stay out of there. These people are the latest pawns in the banker controlled world of lies and deception. These banker parasites have now apparently stolen 33 tons of Ukraine gold and sent it to their vaults in NY. These bankers have spent the last few decades stealing the world blind using their fiat money and now that it is about to crash once and for all they want a new world war to cover up their crimes.
This new war is being urged on by none other than the likes of John McCain. One would think that after the experience he had in Vietnam he would be against sending American soldiers into another dubious war but I guess power and money can buy a clear conscience. The war drums are beating and its only a matter of time before something blows up and coalesces the brainwashed masses into supporting it.
The chess pieces are being moved around in preparation for a stunning move in the not so distant future. The annexation of Crimea, a missing Boeing 777, a weak American dialogue, Turkey threatening to close the Bosporus to Russia, a single U.S. destroyer in the Baltic, reduction of the American military and economic sanctions that are destined to backfire are all part of the grand strategy. When the move comes someone is going to lose some important pieces and this will set up the final checkmate where Americans will be the likely losers.
Those that feel the need to prepare at this point are probably of the same opinion as I that it is too late to stop this train wreck. Perhaps the best that we can do is to amass and store all of the pertinent data to insure when this worldwide cataclysm is over and the dust finally settles in the years to come that all of the information is available to identify those responsible and fit them for a new rope necktie. It is a foregone conclusion that all information and records that might reveal the bankers for what they are will be destroyed in the events to come just as building 7 was destroyed to cover up misappropriations at the Pentagon.
In the days to come here is just one more tidbit to think about. If the U.S. is attacked by a major power that plans total destruction here, that attack will likely be preceded by an EMP laydown. In the event that happens for any reason the 104 nuclear power plants in the U.S. and the 70,000 tons of spent fuel next to them will create one gigantic dirty bomb that will have global implications when loss of coolant eventually causes multiple nuclear fires. This would not only wipe out the U.S. but the attackers as well regardless of location. The only way for them to prevent that is to have a plan to seize control of those plants and prevent coolant loss. If an attack is in the cards the nuclear plants will be the thing to watch for unusual traffic.
The chances of a monumental loss of life increases every day from this point forward and it will be all most can do to insure their survival and that of their family. No amount of planning will likely prepare us for the destruction to come but it is necessary to do what we can to live to fight another day when numbers will be important to our future freedom. Our future is up to us and it is in dire jeopardy at this time. We must learn the lessons from the past and make every day count from now on. Time is the great equalizer and America is fast becoming irrevelant in the world.

When you are confronted with a hostile or dangerous situation, you have three choices. The type of person you are will determine which option you choose. Your response to a crisis is largely determined by how you have lived your life. The influence of family, peers, environment and knowledge will combine to provide you with a unique perspective to react to the situation. How you process all of these inputs will evolve into a belief system for your surroundings. This is why many people react to situations in many different ways.
These inputs will create the comfort zone you are capable of living in. The larger your comfort zone, the more capable you are to respond to a crisis. This comfort zone also determines what your response is to certain dangers. It may be natural for most people to choose flight when they find themselves in a burning building but when these same people are confronted with an armed burglar coming into their home the response will be varied.
When this complicated belief system is used, you must decide the proper response and react. You must decide if the potential loss is worth the potential gain in any action you take. This will determine what form your response takes.
When you apply this to the current situation in America where government tyranny is growing you have three choices to deal with the threat.
Those that surrender are those that are willing to go along to get along. This may work out for a while until these people become a liability to the government and then they are eliminated. Those that surrender are usually willing to sell out their neighbors for the prospect of saving themselves and prolonging any hardship.
Those that take to flight are those that are not willing to stand for their beliefs if they in fact have any and want to take the easy way out. The problem with flight is that the problems you are leaving behind may someday find you again. This is true if we are in fact facing a new world order that seeks to control everybody and everything. The ability to leave the current environment to find safety has a definite expiration date when escape is possible. There are many that have prospered in the American system and now feel compelled to flee in order to protect what they have earned. They may feel they owe America nothing or they may be repositioning themselves to help from outside the nation when the time comes. Only time will tell what their true intentions are.
Those that are prone to flight to escape hardship have a tendency to be people that want a lot out of life but do not want to endure any suffering. They want all of the rewards without the cost. Their mentality is such that self preservation at all costs is more important than their beliefs. This is not the same as someone who merely repositions themselves to better their defensive position to fight perceived danger.
Those that are determined to fight are those that have deep beliefs and are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to defend what they believe. These types typically have a large comfort zone and are willing to take many chances to achieve their goals. While some flight may be necessary at times they will always be ready to reenter the fight when they determine it is advantageous. When the decision to fight is reached it is because some type of tipping point is reached where they are not willing to make any more concessions to their belief system.
In the situation Americans now find themselves in, they must now ask, what are they willing to fight for and what is their tipping point. If they choose flight then that window is rapidly closing. For those willing to go along to get along they must decide what they are willing to betray to get by. For those that choose to fight when the time comes they must determine what form the fighting will take and arm themselves accordingly while they can. Now is the time to determine what your comfort zone is and if it should be expanded. Now is the time to determine what you will do and when you will do it. Now is the time to determine what you stand for.
Far better it is to dare mighty things, than to take rank with those poor timid spirits that know neither victory nor defeat.
