I am a firm believer in preparations always. So many things to prep for, and so much information people need to know. The vast majority of the American population today simply prepares for nothing. Hell, over 80% of society don’t even have a will, or any medical/financial power of attorneys, or even have a dime in savings right now, but that’s for another day. These are those same people, that will panic, create chaos, and absolutely be the ones who will join or organize riots and mobs to take by force, from those who worked so hard and peacefully to save and prepare for possible future catastrophes.
So many just ignore and brushes off any attention to this must-needed action for their own safety and that of our nation. This is the reality today, and for every day that goes by, this situation just festers more and more into a stressed, sensitive cyst of society that even Dr. Pimple Popper will steer clear from, and soon it will explode. I am often asked for some basics in defense of self, home, and property to ensure family safety. So this is what I tell them.
First and foremost, you have got to know that all these actions are done in secret. Do not brag about what you’re doing. In a crisis, panicked people will always recall who has mentioned in the past about preparing for dangers. So do it, but keep it to yourself and tell your family to do the same.
Seriously, start now in eating right. Get away from the junk, create a fitness program and stick with it as your life depends on it. Because it does. Lose weight, and work on strength and endurance training.
Take self-defense classes or self-teach the best you can in boxing, martial arts, wrestling, etc.
Study defensive tactics of all kinds, technology can help, and there is no excuse to not do so.
Collect tactical and camping gear now, do not overload.
Develop and attain a communication system/s, practice with all communication equipment once you get them.
In case of having to move, have a plan to reduce and practice (bug out procedures). Back up plans for all preparations made everywhere.
Dream up scenarios of off-grid survival when water, gas, and electricity all stop and practice, practice, practice.
Learn basic survival skills like water filtration, Firestarter, and first aid.
Get Motorcycles, Bicycles, and even Horses depending on the land you have.
Buy seeds of all kinds now and store them in Ziplocs and box them up.
On your own property start creating gardens, box gardens, pot gardens, and hanging gardens, begin to learn how to grow your own food no matter how big or small.
Start raising meats like rabbits, chickens, quail, doves/pigeons, and fish all fairly easy and do not need a lot of space.
Depending on the size of your home will determine how much you can prep for in-house.
Be prepared for what your habitat dictates. Store Can foods, dry foods, dehydrated long shelf life staples like rice, beans, flour, sugars, water containers, grills, coffee, liquor, medicines, hygiene items, and waste disposal techniques and items.
Create a safe room in your home in case of home invaders and have access to supplies in the safe room.
Equipment for last-minute home fortifications like extra hinges, door hasps, and strong locks, door barricade bar stops, thick window precut plywood to screw into walls. Alarm systems, Booby traps, and guard dogs.
Guns and ammo.
Don’t be that guy with 100 different weapons, assess your home/land and plan for all possible scenarios. If you live in an apartment on the upper east side a Gatling gun might be an overkill. Rule of thumb rifle for long distances, a shotgun for short distances, handgun for close encounters. The area you DO want to go overboard on is overstock in ammo, without it, your firearms are useless.
Other weapons. If you have no firearms there are a plethora of alternatives but with all weapons and firearms it is key you practice with all of them now, don’t wait, because when you need them is when you need to conserve your ammunition. Blades of all kinds are always good to have on hand, knives, swords, machetes, spears, and axes. Blunt weapons like clubs, hammers, and chains. Stringed weapons like Bows, crossbows, and slingshots. Spray weapons like Mace, pepper spray, bear spray, and wasp nest spray (hillbilly mace) these spray accurately up to 26 feet and inflict more damage than mace or pepper spray. Battery operated like tasers. Flashbangs and other fireworks are always an advantage and last resort.
Know where your water sources are within a mile of your home. Map them, walk to them, and back home.
Do not make your home a magnet for passersby. In other words, hide/disguise your rain barrels, wells, campers, coops, or anything that would attract survival attention, you should hide the best you can.
Touch base with other preppers to coordinate teamwork in future scenarios and trading possibilities. If you raise chickens and they raise bees that is a great trade scenario, (eggs for honey)
Join online homestead, prepping, defense, blogs and groups now so you can self-learn and train while you still can.
Have a bugout location planned, routed and assessed now but only use it if the destruction of your current home is inevitable. Most travel ways will be absolutely blocked with stand still traffic and very, very, dangerous with panicked, mob mentalities.
Holy Bible. Spiritual calmness will help maintain survival mental capabilities. Which will give you peace of mind and aid in your physical stamina and endurance as well.
There is a lot to unpack in this small piece here. But remember this is not a question of will you need these or not, our nation is eroding quickly and when you know it is time to survive, it will be too late to prepare. So bless yourself, your family, your home, and your property now and begin this mission of strengthening your personal sovereignty. I will leave you with this:
“We The People Are The Top Authority within our Republic!
We The People Are Rehabilitating Our Nation’s History!
We The People Are Preparing Ourselves, Family, and Property!
We The People Are Humbling Ourselves in our One Nation Under God!
We The People Are Understanding Unity, IGY6, E Pluribus Unum!
We The People Are Taking back our Sovereignty!”
