As many of you know I have been a survivalist for last 30+ years. Not only do I run my own survival group, But I help others establish their group, And teach them the lessons that I learned the hard way.
I’ve written books, and thousands of articles about survival, Sustainability, And the geopolitical climate affecting survivalism.
It is with much distress That I’m seeing the demise of survivalism, And the rapid assimilation of a war like movement Gearing up to do battle with the United States government and military.
It is very distressing to me because that is absolutely the WRONG WAY TO DO IT!
Let’s put things into perspective here:
If everybody bugs out, who will hold the line. Who will stand shoulder to shoulder with the next Pissed off Fed up patriot?
Why is it that the majority of survivalist that I see on Facebook Are 100% totally focused on Civil War, Instead of survivalism?
When some 27-year-old kid, With absolutely no military Training, Tells me that he’s a survivalist, But doesn’t have one week worth of food stockpiled, Yet can rattle off the nomenclature and operating procedure of nearly every assault weapon—Scares the shit out of me.
That’s not a survivalist in my book; He’s anarchist looking for a war, Or at least excuse to go to war…
The fact is real simple people: You all need to get your head out of your ass, And start thinking in terms of reality instead of this Hollywood bullshit I see going on.
I personally think that far too many survivalist Get caught up in the plethora of Fear Mongering And conspiracy Theories blasting across the Internet today.
Many of these website, And so called experts a really good at pushing buttons of fear, But yet when it comes to the solution, They want you to buy something from them. If it’s that damn important–share the knowledge without restriction.
Many of you have been my friends on here for years. You know where I stand Politically. That is an undeniable fact.
But I got to tell your friend, I’m really glad that you post links on Facebook pages Exposing some of the Nefarious events going on in the world, But what the hell are you going to do about.
Nothing that’s what!
I already know this for fact because the vast majority of Facebook user Are simply playing on the Internet, And to chickenshit to stand up for what they believed in.
Fact check: If I write something silly, stupid, or humorous, I get all kinds of likes. But on the other hand, If I write something anti-government, Or offer a solution that would require personal ambition-The piece that I wrote gets just a few likes.
That my friend tells me everything that I need to know. There are a few of you on here that I know have the same attitude that I do. My respect to you collectively, And individually.
But to the rest of you bugging out I have this much to say to you: Your food will run out.
Your wife will get tired of living in the woods.
You will not be alone out there.
You will not be sitting all around a campfire roasting marshmallows, And singing cumbyah.
You alone, without help, cannot go to war Against the military. I don’t give a damn if it’s America’s military or United Nations foreign troops. You will get your ass shot off!
The problem is this: What will be the trigger which sets you into motion?
How will you recognize the event trigger for what it means to you personally, And the rest of society?
Do you think that bugging out into the woods will solve the issue?
How long can you maintain your safety and security, Without coming back into the affected areas In order to resupply yourself?
Are you simply going to execute a one man suicide mission?
That’s where the bullshit factor comes into play…!!
You’re just bullshitting yourself and everyone else if you subscribed to this dumbass theory.
Given the current political climate flowing out there, I see things getting we worst every stinking day. It’s almost a certainty that Civil War will Explode in America unless there are some rapid policy changes occurring.
Firearms are essential to survivalism as freeze dried food. But neither mean diddly squat unless you have friends who have your back. By that I mean real friends, Not Facebook Friends!
If Civil War should erupt in America, Like we have witnessed in the Mideast countries, It will not be a pretty sight Or beautiful experience.
That is the reality factor!
How will you initiate your one man war?
I guess whom?
What targets will you strike?
How will you determine if your victorious?
How will you get the support of The indigenous population?
As I’ve said time and time again; How many of you are willing to die to make a fucking political statement!
When the men in Black blow through your front door in the middle of the night, And you resist–They will shoot your ass off just to make an example of you to scare the rest of us Into submission.
When the Feds Took down hutaree Of Michigan based purely upon contrived and manufactured Evidence, None of which held up in court–a large number of established militia groups, As well as Individual resistors, Immediately distanced Themselves Because they were too chicken shit to be outraged!
During Hurricane Katrina Where was the outrage When the feds and police departments were kicking in doors and illegally seizing firearms from law abiding citizens!
Who got rightly pissed off this year, when 150 Heavily armed federal officers swooped in during the night And descended on a Pennsylvania survivalist who made disparaging remarks against Obama on one of those stupid ass preppers shows!
When the murdering police thugs are violating someone’s rights, Or beating them to death, Why is it that most people will stand around and just videotape it—Instead of going and kicking some ass!
All of these are documented facts….
Survivalism and resistance Are two distinctly different animals. One does not go with the other.
Ask yourself this real simple question: While I am out there fighting the government, Who will take care of my family?
How will I resupply my ammunition?
From the enemies dead bodies you say… Better take the time to check the technology that they are using on personal and crew served weapons!
Remember that these military Units train for this shit every day. This is what they do for a living.
One man might take one or two of them down, But unless you have friends backing you up, You’re on a suicide mission.
Word: Helicopter gunship….!
Are you starting to get my point now? Forget all of that “Red Dawn” Bullshit you watched at the movies. Real life doesn’t work that way.
So what’s the answer to this dilemma?
You’ll know what to do, When to do it, How to do it, And with whom to do it with—When the time comes!
Stay tuned for more later…
War Machine: By Franke Schein
Good God People! How many times will you fall for this beat-up line of horseshit?
This whole thing was first reported in the 1980’s by Alex Jones. I listened to his show, and others, on the shortwave. It was viable then, and I have kept a very close eye on this for twenty years.
In A Nutshell: It Ain’t Ever Happening…..!
FEMA is unable to gather the manpower, equipment, funding, and resources to manage a natural disaster.
FEMA is unable, after spending billions in tax dollars, to adequately provide advance warning capability in the event of a national crisis.
FEMA is unable to gather resources, recruit, equip, or train the manpower necessary to respond to small-localized events, much less events that have national ramifications.
FEMA Coffins that have been stored are for natural disasters. PERIOD!
The Alleged FEMA camps are designed to hold “Medically Infected” citizen, in the event of a national medical emergency, or other disaster/crisis.
FEMA camps are also designed to serve as Command & Communications Centers in the event of invasion, or terrorist attack, as well as wide-spread civil unrest.

The use of firearms when SHTF is probably one of the most talked-about issues on the internet these days. In many cases, firearms sometimes rank higher than food supplies in some circles.
The trend in survival firearms has taken a radical right turn; instead of defensive weapons, many have turned towards assault rifles, and offensive weapons. It’s not uncommon to see survivalists wearing tactical gear, Kevlar helmets, ballistic vest, and sporting an assortment of battle-ready guns with multiple magazines of ammunition.
The problem with that is; it doesn’t leave much room for survival gear. Heading out into the woods with tactical gear, and preparing for a gun battle is okay if that is your mindset. But the reality is that all of that gear won’t help you one bit—when faced with multiple opponents. On the contrary, it will only serve to make their job easier because it’s hard to run wearing all of that gear.
When I train newbies out in the field, the rule is only carry the things that you will actually need, and replace everything else with food supplies. Nothing is as important as food—nothing!
One of the things that I attempt to have people understand, is that even though firearms are an integral part of any survival plan, they should not be the entire plan.
No matter what the weapon of choice is; it is necessary to first become intimate with the weapon. That means spending a lot of time at the range, shooting at various distances, and shooting during weather extremes. It takes hundreds of hours to “Become One” with your weapon. But when the honeymoon is over, you’ve got something in your hands that is both familiar and might provide for an extra edge if you are ever forced to shoot somebody down.
It really doesn’t matter the make or model of the rifle, what matters is the weight, the maneuverability, and whether or not you can hit what you are aiming at in any survival or weather condition. One of my more favorite weapons is an old Soviet battle rifle: The Mosin-Nagant M1944 7.62x54R bolt action rifle. The rifle is sometimes referred to as a “Russian .308”; and that would be a close description.
[ Mosin-44 Out in The Alaska Back Country ]
The Mosin-44 is a trusted old rifle that is still being used today in many parts of the world. Here in Alaska, these old rifles are found in the hands of Eskimo hunters, and homesteaders alike. It’s reputation and durability makes this a rifle that has earned its place by the people that count on it for their day to day existence.
I’ve owned and fired tons of weapons throughout the years. Some weren’t worth a plugged nickel, while others were worth their weight in gold. One of my more favorite defensive weapon is a Diamond Back .380 caliber handgun. It’s small size makes it an ideal carry-weapon,. It certainly doesn’t pack the same punch as a .45 ACP, but again—it’s all a matter of getting to know your weapon, as well as your own capabilities. What is amazing for this small caliber cartridge, is the penetration factor. As a primary combat weapon it’s all but useless due to to lack of energy; but up-close-personal, this weapon will do what’s asked of it.
[ DB-380 Semi-Auto Handgun ]
Survivalists should consider firearms as yet another tool that gets the job done. Over-reliance on weapons is the one problem that should be avoided. To me personally; a rifle that I carry in the bush has to be suited for hunting and defensive situations. The standard that I apply to myself is that I carry one rifle, and one handgun; perhaps if the situation requires it, I may also hump a folding-stock shotgun. But in my own survival plans, everyone in my group is armed, and even if it’s just my family and I tromping around in the bush—we all carry weapons.
When SHTF; protecting the family and yourself, as well as protecting your stockpile will require firearms that are capable of doing the job with little or no frills. A basic pump shotgun, an assault rifle, or even a bolt action rifle will make life miserable for those individuals who foolishly believe that a “force of arms” will feed them.
I much prefer the heavy caliber weapons such as the belted-magnums. There is no doubt in my mind that a .375 H&H magnum will punch right through ballistic armor. Subsequently, the .454-Casull Magnum will certainly eat bullet-proof vests everyday of the week.
Additionally; in the hands of an experienced shooter, the bolt action .308 caliber rifle loaded with deadly Armor Piercing ammunition is a force of nature unto itself. A determined shooter can far exceed the range and killing power of assault rifle wielding assailants.
When it comes to self-defense in a survival situation, it’s important to understand that if you are doing things correctly; nobody out there should see you, hear, you, or realize that you are in the area. When things go south, and you find yourself confronted with armed thugs, your best option is to get away as quickly as possible. Breaking contact might not sound very “Macho”; but I guarantee that you will not feel so Macho when one of your kids, or your mate is laying dead on the ground.
