‘It Is Like A Nuclear Bomb Went Off In The Prepping Community’

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

nuclear-war-family-public-domainIs the prepper movement in the United States dying?  At one time it was estimated that there were 3 million preppers in the United States, but in late 2016 interest in prepping has hit a multi-year low.  The big reason for this, of course, is that the election of Donald Trump has fueled a tremendous wave of optimism among those that consider themselves to be conservatives, patriots and evangelical Christians.  Not since the election of Ronald Reagan has the mood on the right shifted in such a positive direction so suddenly.  But now that everyone is feeling so good about things, very few people still seem interested in prepping for hard times ahead.  In fact, it is like a nuclear bomb went off in the prepping community.

As the publisher of The Economic Collapse Blog, I am in contact with a lot of people that serve the prepping community.  And I can tell you that sales of emergency food and supplies have been crashing since Donald Trump’s surprise election victory.  Firms that help people relocate outside of the United States have seen business really dry up, and I know of one high profile individual that has actually decided to move back to the country after Trump’s victory.  It is almost as if the apocalypse has been canceled and the future history of the U.S. has been rewritten with a much happier ending.

Personally, I am quite alarmed that so many people are suddenly letting their guard down, but it is difficult to convince people to be vigilant when things seem to be going so well.  Just consider some of the things that have been happening in recent weeks…

-Donald Trump was just named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year.

-The Dow just keeps setting brand new record high after brand new record high.  In fact, the Dow has now risen by more than 1,200 points since Donald Trump won the election.

-The Russell 2000 has shot up an astounding 13 percent just since Trump’s victory.

-Donald Trump has convinced heating, ventilation and air conditioning giant Carrier to keep about 1,000 jobs in the United States instead of shipping them to Mexico.

-Donald Trump has convinced SoftBank to invest 50 billion dollars and create 50,000 new jobs in the United States.

-The U.S. dollar index recently hit the highest level that we have witnessed since March 2003.

-We just learned that U.S. Steel wants to bring back somewhere around 10,000 jobs to communities that lost them.

At this point there is an overwhelming belief among those on the right that Donald Trump is going to be able to do what he has promised to do.

And the numbers back this up.  In a previous article, I discussed the fact that a recent Gallup survey discovered that the percentage of Republicans that believe that the U.S. economy is “getting better” increased from just 16 percent immediately prior to the election to 49 percent immediately after the election.

I don’t recall ever seeing such a shift in public sentiment in just a few days.  Tens of millions of Americans have put their faith in Donald Trump, and time will tell if he will be able to deliver.  As billionaire Mark Cuban recently pointed out, Donald Trump is like a number one draft pick that has not proven himself yet…

“I’ll analogize it to the NBA draft: He’s the No. 1 pick,” Cuban said. “He’s who we put our hopes and dreams with, and we’re going to believe in him. Right now it’s a little bit easier because we haven’t played a game yet.”

“There’s no reason to rush to judgment or come to any conclusions now,” he continued. “Let’s see what happens starting January 21 and go from there. I hope he’s a superstar, and I hope everything turns out the way we all hope it will. But until January 21, there’s no real point at going into detail.”

Let us hope that President Trump will be everything that people are hoping that he will be.

I would love it if 2017 is a year filled with peace and prosperity.  That way I could write less about our economic troubles and instead do more of the positive stories that I have been sharing lately.  And my wife and I could take some time off and just spend some time enjoying our quiet life up here in the mountains.

I don’t think that is the way it is going to go, but I do hope that the optimists are right.

At this point I could start listing out all of the reasons why our economy is doomed no matter who is president, but unless you are already convinced all of that reasoning would probably fall on deaf ears.

Tens of millions of Americans are completely convinced that we are heading into a new golden era for America just because Donald Trump won the election, and for the sake of the nation let us hope that they are correct.

But what if they are wrong?

What if the rioting, violence and civil unrest that the radical left is planning for the Inauguration on January 20th sparks a movement that plunges many of our major cities into chaos throughout Trump’s presidency?

What if all of the incredibly bad decisions that were made during the Obama years result in the biggest economic downturn we have ever seen early in the Trump years?

What if Trump’s inability to get along with China results in a major trade war between the two largest economies on the entire planet?

What if the growing financial instability in Europe results in a new global financial crisis that Trump will not be able to do anything to stop?

I could go on and on, but I think that you get the point.

All of the things that myself and other watchmen have been warning about all this time are coming.

My hope is that the optimists are right and that the horrible events that are coming will be put off for as long as possible.

But I wouldn’t count on it.

A day of reckoning for America is fast approaching, and those that are wise understand the signs of the times.

  • I Think I’ll Eat Some Almonds

    It is a funny thing to see a “believer” more worried about “worldly” events than a non believer.

    I find that interesting.

  • Cinderella Man

    And I agree to an extent..I am not one of those who have let their guard down. I will never let my guard down after what happened to me 7 years ago. However it’s hard not to feel great after being in crappy weather for 8 years that the weatherman is predicting sunny skies for a change. I admit it has changed my outlook on life. I have lived doom and gloom for too long. I once looked at government and the system as deeply corrupt and evil and now I feel like we have a chance to really have something for once. I believe that Trump will be an awesome president economically and militarily. He is a smart man and I trust that he will make the right decisions in the toughest moments. I have no illusions. I know the economy is hanging on by a thread and it will go thru a correction and another crash. But it feels better with an experienced captain at the helm going thru turbulence. I thought you were a man of faith Michael? Don’t you believe that this was an act of providence? That in our darkest hour when all hope seemed lost suddenly the light appeared. That’s why you see a drop off in prepping and probably readership. That’s why people lose patience with you and get irritated by all the constant doomsaying. Whatever happens will happen. When you accept things as the way they are meant to be you will find more peace in your life. Let go of the need to control.

    • I Think I’ll Eat Some Almonds

      Regardless of what happens with Mr. Trump, if you are feeling positive, that in itself is good. Be glad.

    • Anteater

      I know lots of rich tax-dodgers who put their hope and faith into a Trump victory, then celebrated with high-fives, until Trump decided, ‘The Old Hag needs a rest-home, not a prison cell.’ That was a stunner. But they picked up the meme, bygones be bygones, and high-fived until Trump opened his mouth again, and their so-called Mr. ‘Anti-Establishment’ turned over the reins of power to Goldman and MIC and Big Corp.

      What is the most disturbing? BigBank now controls all the 1s and 0s at Treasury, Fed, Commerce, NEC and OMB, you know, the auditors. For the next 4 years, we will be flying totally blind. Do we buy and hold and go long? Let’s ask OMB and SEC, oh, wait. They control all the levers of power now. You are putting your full faith and credit in P/E 19 being forcefully ZIRP’d then NIRP’d to P/E 27 using your last life savings. Buy on the dips!!

      I interviewed the pioneer that we leased our farm from, 50 years ago, asked him about the Great Depression. He had 40 acres, a big root cellar and a smoke shack and a giant barn and equipment shed, a poppin’ John tractor, cultivators, manure spreader and an old harvester when we leased it from him. What happened way back then?

      “Well, son,” he toed a twig with his boot, “They came up out of the city by 1s and 4s, then dozens and hundreds, and marched the highway eating everything they could grab. So by the time they got to our place, we killed all the animals, locked up the place, and went with them.”

      That’s back when you worked for 25c a day and found, ‘found’ being a tent and a plate of beans. On Sundays you’d buy a steak for 25c, with coffee and all the rolls you could eat. Then Monday, back to 6-12s hard labor. That was just four generations ago. Remember 2009? ZIRP/NIRP will make the next bubble mind-boggling.

      Gold? It’s all fiat funny paper and 24k plated tungsten now. Who would you sell it to, when everyone is selling out? The only ‘true store of value’ is high-quality weed, stored in nitrogen and in fused-glass capsules. You will always be able to trade weed for anything you need, because the supply will drop to zero under martial law. They can’t detect glass capsules with dogs or metal detectors. Bury packs in plastic tubs in the back 20. Then ride hard for the Canadian border until the first die-off, during the Winter kill. Plant again in Spring.

      That’s how you ‘prep’.

  • RedPillPlease

    There is an excellent book review for Michael’s “The Rapture Verdict” on Amazon by an 80 year old Pastor who is long on wisdom as his review obviously reads. Note, you will find it under the “1-Star” column and it speaks volumes to the pessimism found here!

  • mtntrek3

    Thanks Michael for another good article. My words and many other’s words may fail us and others around us ……….. but “The Word” will never fail any of us. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. I’m being repetitive I know. But, our eternal destiny is the most important thing. Michael points this out himself in the green banner above. Concern for all. Chris.

    • Lazarovic

      gag…

      • mtntrek3

        Bottom line is, we as people may fail one another. God will never fail us as our Savior.

        I need to add, I myself may laugh and joke about certain things in life….. but concerning God I am totally serious. Our eternal lives are at stake. You may say I’m a phony. Call me what you want…… that’s o.k. However, in all seriousness and in truth please consider Christ as your Savior. Please. The alternative is ……… you don’t want to know. Chris.

    Trump has to deal with the same influential forces that started the civil war, funded Hitler and other dictators, started world wars, crashed stock markets, and removed Americas manufacturing capabilities over decades. These people will not go gently into that goodnight. If we are close to biblically prophetic times then the election of Trump has lit a fire in an otherwise complacent elite who were happy to just gradually turn us into a police state.
    Now that their people will be out of DC, we are less safe because they still control the shadow government who would take full control of the military and the economy in the event that national continuity of government plans were implemented due to a big enough crisis or event. And thats just a scenario involving a decapitation of power. Were still not talking about economic warfare, biological warfare, terrorism, or the funding of our enemies to be used against us.
    With the hope we all have in Trump it worries me that our faith in him to make things better will exhaust our resources in the event there are real crisis events triggered by the elites. Albert Pikes 3 world wars scenario where we battle Islam to the point of economic and spiritual exhaustion comes into play. Had Hillary won most people would have been content to let it all burn so we could start over again. But with Trump we would fight until the bitter end for the hope of Making America Great Again.

  • Hetty

    Thanks for the article, Michael, wise words. Beware of the light at the end of the tunnel: it could be an oncoming train.

    • SnodtBlossom

      The big reason for this, of course, is that the election of Donald Trump has fueled a tremendous wave of optimism among those that consider themselves to be conservatives, patriots and evangelical Christians.
      Could it just be that Countdown ended and there was no collapse at the end of Michael and his likes articles? Could it be that nobody’s been buying the doom and statisticians finally noticed?

      • I Think I’ll Eat Some Almonds

        What is this “Countdown” you speak of? :-)

        • NorthernBud

          I think it’s talking about some countdown until Hillary Clinton is President.

          Some moron was posting it before the election…complete fail.

          • I Think I’ll Eat Some Almonds

            Thank you for the quick reply.

            I wasn’t sure if it was that countdown or the other countdown for the Red A11ert from over a year ago.

          • Cinderella Man

            That was ATs countdown not Michael’s Michael staked his rep on that one

      “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”

      According to you Hetty, that saying could have come from Union Pacific.

  • William Lutz

    I am terribly sorry to inform you all, but the major crisis we will experience is most probably inevitable. Trump is a good guy, but he doesn’t have the full capacity to repair or change what has been broken for so long.

    One thing to consider is that the total debt is so YUGE that even a bunch of billionaires can’t pay it off. Another thing to consider is the amount of spending necessary to sustain our infrastructure and services. Our heads are no longer above water; we are actually way below the water’s surface. Essentially, we are drowning in debt.

    • mtntrek3

      Yep….. look to the Bible for further insight on what is to come. Faith in Christ first. Take care. Chris.

      • tidbit

        When I hear Trump say he will make us the strongest military ever known etc? With 100 million unemployed and national debt already 20T, it seems we’re being sold the same tired Reagan bill of swindle again. Union leaders said the 1100 Carrier jobs he saved were actually only 730. Even the 50,000 jobs are .001% of what we’ve lost last half century

        • mtntrek3

          Well, when something sounds too good to be true, …….. . He may help us out somewhat, I hope. Yep, he does sound like Reagan in some ways. Reagan wasn’t very impressive at all in the jobs department. ….. And, yes I understand that not all the Carrier jobs are being kept here. Trump was a typical politician in regards to his blah, blah, blah back before he announced he was running for Pres. . Anyway, time will tell.

      William, the debt crisis is real. Under Barry Soertoro (Obama) the FED has just monetized the debt. But there are serious consequences for this really bad action which most likely come to roost during Trump’s term.

    • grayfozx114

      Good call! The debt is greater than all the combined wealth of the world! HTF does one pay that off? The system needs to be allowed to collapse, totally, and the start over without the benefit of the Fed! Back to a gold and silver based currency system!

      • Char

        Yes the debit is so large and the contract obligations, Medicare, S.S etc can never be repayed in today’s prices. It will have to collapse. So while we can breathe right now, do not let up your guard because darkness is looming.

    People need to be careful. The economic collapse is inevitable and however good a businessman Trump is he will be unable to stave it off. Rather, I am hoping he will be able to mitigate the consequences.

  • Hypnonatural

    Thank you Michael for the economic collapse blog. It has helped to keep me on track of the coming financial storms. I feel like Noah building the ark for 100 ears with everyone laughing at me for my talk of the coming financial deluge.

    I feel like what is happening is that people like us are suffering from ‘prep burnout’ as the central banks keep changing the rules in order to store up more wealth for themselves (ie QE to infinity).

    Trumps election is everyones hope for change so in my view it is the calm before the real storm. In my work as a hypnopsychotherapist over the last several years I have hundreds of clients who were suicidal due to their financial situation. WHO estimates close to a million people have committed suicide during 2012 alone.

    Anyway keep up the good work, Joe from Cork city, Ireland

      Whatever some may say, those things are blessings. There are some that see to it that those of us that are less fortunate can have the essentials in this world. To them,I am grateful. To God….. I am most grateful. There are some in politics that do what they can for us the less fortunate (thankful). I am also thankful for those out there earning their pay working and paying taxes to fund our way. I was once as they are working and paying taxes (I still pay taxes in several ways…… don’t we all) and hope to join them in the near future. There are still some bright spots in the political realm and the world’s realm. I personally am thankful for them and for God and His help and mercy. Take care. God Bless. Chris.

    They will wish to blame Trump, for what is coming. So I would expect them to let him get in office first. I will say one thing. I would rather have Trump at the helm, during such times. The rest I leave in the Lord’s hands.

    • Paul Patriot

      Amen! I have listened to theories of the globalists propping up economy till Trump gets in, then crash the economy, blame Trump and then create the chaos required to bring their agenda closer to fruition.

      I do not trust in any man to be able to repair this morally and economically bankrupt nation, but, I ask all freedom loving conservatives to continue to pray for Trump and his family, as the liberal progressive DEMONcrats have continually showed the nation how “tolerant” they and are not beyond using lies, propaganda and violence to fight against the principles that have made this nation a beacon of hope and freedom the world wide.

    I think the moment in the direction of decline/collapse is too great and we’ve past a point of no return. When these things get to a point they become inevitable. Greater than any man’s ability to prevent them. More powerful that money’s ability to buy them out. The best we can do is manage collapse at this point and somehow find meaning in the conditions to come.

  • Ranger

    Trump will change nothing. He is an owned and controlled stooge as are all who enter the White House. The BANKS run this country, period! Not any selected installed puppet. Traitor Trump has already allowed the most evil corrupted pig to walk scott free, and that wall he was gonna build? Now has become a wall in some spots and some fencing in others. Oh, and we won’t be deporting illegals after all. Trump the Traitor!

    He spoke of a man named Lying Ted? Traitor Trump lied like a rug to the American people!!

    • Cinderella Man

      Dude he’s not even in office yet…if he punks out on his promises then I will join you in calling him a liar

    Well, this gal isn’t gonna stop putting stores by. And planning a bigger garden. A stock market this high has only one way to go. And as a retiree I sure am not betting the farm I own on Trump’s not meddling with my SS check. The man has no moral compass ..it’s all about him. A president that expresses every stray thought that pops in his head on Twitter???? I’m ashamed my fellow Americans fell for his scam. So I will tuck in on my paid for farm with my cellar full of the fruits of my labor and hope our family will weather this storm. Other economies have collapsed and you can only prop up a failing Ponzi scheme so long.

    • Cinderella Man

      If you thought it would be better with Hillarat you are sadly mistaken…Trump isn’t perfect but he is a far better option than that insane warmonger

    • Karen McKim-Altman

      You were willing to fall for Hillary’s lies?

    • Linda Smith

      Agreed, D.smith. Didn’t matter who won – it’s all a dog & pony show. Stay safe.

  • A big reality check to temper our “Trump enthusiasm”…and with some people… unrealistic optimism and euphoria…be sober, be vigilant, the enemy will push back even harder…

    1 Thessalonians 5:3 (KJV)
    “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.”

    A book worth reading from 33 years ago…challenges us…

    The contrary scenario written about by the astute prophecy researcher and Bible doctrine expert, Dave Hunt, in his book “Peace, Prosperity and the Coming Holocaust” (1983-1984) is becoming a very real possibility as the outlook for America seems to improve… but the Lord gave the above sobering warning through Paul that “sudden destruction” would be the outcome…

    Could this possibly be when the resurrection-translation (“rapture”) occurs? And the world system falls into the hands of Lucifer and his evil kingdom by God’s prophetic plan revealed in the Revelation of Jesus Christ?

    “The last trump” may be the LORD’s play on words…biblically, it is “His voice”…just as it was with Moses at Mt. Sinai…but remember, Donald Trump was born exactly 70 years, 7 months and 7 days to inauguration day, January 21st, 2017.

    777 is God’s holy number of perfection for the Godhead…Father, Son and Holy Spirit…the symbology is stunning…not a coincidence…but divine Providence. Could He be telling us loudly to “keep looking up” (popular slogan of the late Dr. J. R. Church, Bible prophecy expert).

    Look at this verse…

    Luke 12:40 (KJV)
    “Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.”

Imagine if H was in charge, she who went into a berserker rage when she lost, and used every filthy cuss word on those she blamed for her defeat, including O and Podesta. Imagine her hand on the Red Button! She needs the Lord real bad! This machine tells me that “berserker” isn’t a word, but it is! Look it up; it’s the perfect description, as Bill himself can testify.

    Yeah, not time to think everything is sunshine and lollypops. The Dow is due to hit 20K soon. When that crashes it will be much worse then anything in the past.

  • Scottie

    Good article… but the author mentions nothing about the obvious… Natural Disaster…

    We are more likely to experience a major disruption from a catastrophic event than a financial collapse… Although they’re probably neck to neck at this point…

    Look at Yellowstone… Real threat! The ash field alone expected to reach southern Texas. Do you have any idea the kind of impact that will have on this country? Research it…

    We just had a 6.5 earthquake in California just moments ago… There are 5 major fault lines in various areas across the United States and that’s not even including San Andreas… When the Northern Pacific quake does indeed happen, it’s expected to be in the 9.0 to 9.5 range… No building will survive that! Instant liquid… Many people will perish.

    Nuclear threat: Although a man made disaster, an EMP would cripple this nation for years… If we could even be so lucky that a nuclear strike would be high altitude causing an EMP versus a direct hit. Let’s face it, If any country breaks out the nukes, It’s a game changer, period! If you were going to go to those lengths, why only cripple a country and risk having a nuke lobbed in your direction? It’s been a proven fact that North Korea would love nothing more that to take out the west… Officials have said in the past that their missiles don’t have the range to reach us… They have since recently recanted that statement…

    But looking on the other side of that scenario of the lights going out, this planet is bombarded daily as a result of CME’s, or Coronial Mass Ejections. Most only result in crappy cell service and Wi-Fi connections, but if a massive CME was to hit this planet… again, years to recover for the entire planet. You talk about going back to the dark ages.

    A description that Wikipedia gives is:

    “Solar energetic particles can cause particularly strong aurorae in large regions around Earth’s magnetic poles. These are also known as the Northern Lights (aurora borealis) in the northern hemisphere, and the Southern Lights(aurora australis) in the southern hemisphere. Coronal mass ejections, along with solar flares of other origin, can disrupt radio transmissions and cause damage to satellites and electrical transmission line facilities, resulting in potentially massive and long-lasting power outages.”

    The largest recorded CME, coincided with the first-observed solar flare on September 1st, 1859, and is now referred to as the Carrington Event. The storm took down parts of the recently created US telegraph network, starting fires and shocking some telegraph operators. You can only imagine if we had that kind of event and the impact it would have on today’s electronic technology… Disastrous!

    On October 13, 2016, President Obama signed an Executive Order that would allow “Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events”. Just a precautionary measure? Maybe… But once again… A real threat!

    If anything else, just look at the resent weather patterns across the United States within the last several years. Super storms, tornadoes in uncommon places like in New England, crazy tsunamis threatening our coastal areas, and just recently, drought causing wild fires in Tennessee that have only affected the Western States in the past.

    The need to prep isn’t only for major cataclysmic events, but even more for local disasters. People should always prepare themselves for any disaster. Civil unrest is a given in any of these scenarios… Food, water, shelter, and medical supplies will alway be the first and foremost asset needed. The “72 hour” theory is a joke. If people are waiting for their government to step in, it could be their demise… Just ask the victims of Hurricane Katrina in the southern states… Have we not learned anything?

    In closing, just remember that political unrest or financial collapse isn’t the most likely cause for things to go awry… Don’t give up on your preps. Mother Nature is stronger than the leaders of any nation… and less predictable… Be ready for anything…

    This rosy picture about things getting better is an illusion. The market 20k soon??? Put it this way, this worthless derivative bubble which is driving the real economy into Hell is still there and getting worst and is about to blow up anytime.

  • C. Young

    Went to the gun range just 2 days ago. While there I asked of the employees of that gun range if their business had slacked off since Trump won the election. He said it had been steady with no drop off. This gun range is in a major metro area of the Southwest. I don’t know where the slacking off is. But it is not happening in the area I live in.

    Folks reading this please keep a few things in mind:
    1) God just gave us 4 more years of postponed judgment. Remember Nineveh? Jonah went to cry out against it, the people repented and God spared just judgment. But due to human depravity they began to wander down the wrong path again only to be destroyed later by God’s judgment in Nahum 3:7. I believe America will still experience God’s judgment because she is Mystery Babylon. Look at the election of Donald Trump as four-more-years, maybe eight, to do additional prepping. #NeverStopPrepping go back and read the parable of the 5 foolish and the 5 wise virgins, we have to have our oil prepped ahead of time and await the bride groom when he comes. Believe me America will face judgment someday due to all the Sodomite Marriage, 50 Million Innocents Slaughtered, Sexual Perversion (Pedophilia, Fornication, Transgender), I see the election of trump as giving us a temporary reprieve (eye of the storm if you will) to allow his remnant more time to prep food, water, supplies, etc. 2) When you see the death of Billy Graham (America’s last surviving evangelist) that will be a tell tale sign that God’s judgment is fast approaching. 3) If the elite have their way and they end up doing to Trump what they did to JFK, I believe people will start to panic. All of those 10’s of millions that are now relaxing because Trump is now in office will begin to stress out again. Use the quiet time NOW to continue to top off your preps, find a safe place to hold out (strategic relocation), and most importantly repent and get your heart where it needs to be.

  • eddivision15

    I think that like Regan Trump will be a Trojan Horse.
    Everybody on the “right” loved Regan but forget that it was his executive order that formally created the “Shadow Government” that has been in permanent control ever since. Ensuring that the president would only ever be a only a figurehead.
    We’ll see I guess.
    Better then that filthy criminal Hillary, No doubt!
    I’m not a prepper but I am paying attention.

  • Greg

    The best way to ensure prepping is not needed anymore would be for the Republicans who control the government to make a voter ID law to prevent future voter fraud from the Dems. Also, with the Gewish controlled media now spewing out story and story about “fake news” it would be best for Trump to break up this oligarchy of real fake news outlets like ABC, NBC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC (basically Gewish controlled media that said Hillary would win in a landslide and Iraq had WMDs). Then declare BLM a terrorist organization and send George Soros to Russia to face trial. We are on the offensive and need to keep marching forward.

  • grayfozx114

    This is not much different than Y2k………..people were prepping like there was no tomorrow, and then Y2k became a non event. Yard sales following were something else! Generators, water filters, camping gear, survival food….people were literally giving it away! There is one big difference, though…..after the Y2k non event, people were able to get on with their lives, shaking their heads about being so gullible. If people are ceasing to prep because the government is changing hands, they are really gullible! Now is the time to get in high gear for prepping and really get ready, because if the shtf, and it will, there will be “better get back on the band wagon” grace period! The event, whatever it turns out to be, is going to hit like, well, a nuclear bomb, and people will be left to their own devices! As to the 3,000,000 estimated preppers, I find that to be a ridiculously low number! I hope I’m wrong!

  • Teknikid

    Admittedly, I felt my “personal defcon level” drop some the night Trump won, but I have not let it stop my prepping. I have NO delusions that the world is suddenly going to level off and be at peace. All that preparing for war out in the middle east is not going to just get called off. Those ships and troops are not going to just cancel everything and head home. I’m still prepping, and will continue to do so as long as there is that much doubt in the air, and right now it hangs pretty heavy.

  • Millennium

    I dont think its because people are letting their guard down. I think a lot of people are feeling the pinch of high as F#ck taxes and government Ponzi Schemes like Obamacare.

  • John Williams

    What if everyone who is aware of the situation has there prepping pantries full and we just need a break from all the non stop world ending predictions.Its coming one day sooner than we probably think but for now how about just thanking God for the small break.

  • greanfinisher .

    Well, first of all, only 730 Carrier jobs are now reportedly saved, and that number seems to be diminishing by the day. In fact, it gets worse. Of those jobs to be saved, they will be all non-union as the union represented work force will be terminated. Of course, those non-union employees may be subject to a substantial wage cut in the process, but that’s another story. In the meantime, Carrier will reap a $7 million tax windfall, and with the Indiana taxpayers making up the difference. Also, well over a thousand Carrier jobs will still be sent to Mexico when this is all said and done. From what I can see by this one sided agreement, this doesn’t look like any victory to me by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, this type of corporate welfare only serves to increase the burden on the taxpayers with little to benefit in return. Trump seems to be focusing on stemming the tide of companies that are now leaving the country, but how is that going to improve this service orientated economy that’s currently on life support? If Trump was really serious on making America great again, it seems to me that he should be working on restoring the lost jobs that were exported to third world slave shops.

    Anyone who lets their guard down now is simply a fool. Things may be more positive now, thank goodness, but we’re NOT out of the woods yet, by any means. Just look at our country’s DEBT. Does one need more proof than that? Until I see that number decline rapidly, then the possibility of the U.S. going belly-up is ALWAYS a certainty. China owns us at this point. They bought all of our debt for years, so when do you think they will step forward and ask us to pay them back? And what, pray tell, did our treasonous leaders (politicians) offer them as collateral? We promised them SOMETHING, but no one seems to know what exactly. I think we can all guess – land, resources, gold (if there’s any left), etc.. Folks, if you let your guard down now, you deserve what’s coming, because they will come calling one day….

        To say it will never happen is typical of the right….they are so negative that they cannot win despite winning. They always look at the gloomy side.

  • Mark

    Prepping is expensive and has become big business like YouTube, Alt Media, THIS blog, internet, and etc. The prepping business costs money which quite frankly many in this collapsing economy do not have. Generators, seeds, prep food, storage, water, first aid supplies, gas tanks, guns, and ammo costs money.

    Do not get me wrong, I enjoy this site and the Alt media which is much more enlightening than the MSM. However, business is business and they need to generate revenue and just like this blog they need sponsors and advertisers because that is how they make their money.

    Also the gold and silver market has taken advantage of the gloom and doom to push PMs sales. However, I believe PMs is going nowhere in the distant future. Maybe hold 3% in the portfolio but not worth investing a large sum. It’s a business.

    I do not believe there will be a major collapse in the markets due to Central Bank, Fed, Gov’t, and globIist manipulation. Although the REAL economy is sinking and the middle class is suffering this will go on for a very long time. As a result save your money and do the basics which do not cost you an arm and a leg. Be observant and aware of your surroundings and only do what is necessary at that particular time.

    Just remember the Econ Collapse blg needs readers to get the advertisers. It’s a business.

    • Paul Patriot

      You make good points, but I think you may be missing some of the big picture/agenda and what Biblical porophevy says is coming, and we are witnessing the (post re-birth of Israel) convergence as never seen in world history.

      The globalist who control the banking and other bthings in the world are not going to be affected sghould global economic collapse occurs, in fact that is oine aspect of their agenda.

      It never hurts to be prepared, but very few are prepared for the storm clouds that are coming.

      • Mark

        I agree with what you say. However, my question is will there actually be a true collapse and when? If it happens 100 years from now then prepping is worthless. We must adjust to what is happening now and make the best of the situation. However, I could be wrong and the collapse happens tomorrow. What concerns me is I believe we are in s very slow collapse that may take years before anything of significance happens.

    The U.S. has been given a ‘reprieve’ with Trump’s election. We should not get too complacent, however, as the financial situation is still beyond repair. The S_ _T will hit the fan eventually, because the ‘system’ cannot be maintained. Trump, of course, will be blamed, when his election is only able to forestall the inevitable for a little while.

  • horn blower

    I too am exhausted with the mental focus since 2010 to buy gold/silver, prep, prep, prep and prepare. BUT, as most of us preppers felt something was really wrong with the housing boom should stay ready because I feel something is wrong with so many millions out of employment and the markets are skyrocketing. This is telling me something is really wrong with resting in the idea that all is well. A little longer I think. Couldn’t hurt anyway to continue with storing up, you’ll eat it someday right?

  • Paul Patriot

    Please do not let your guard down, apathy and normalcy bias are fuel for traitors and enemies of freedom, and allows them to pass draconian, anti constitutional legislation that removes liberty one piece at a time.

    Tyrants love citizens that are too busy spending their time pursuing meaningless entertainment, and apethetic and oblivious to the attack on freedoms which will not only affect their futures, but also their children and grandchildrens future.

    We may have a short reprieve with Trump/Pence, if you like living free, then do not allow the time we have left to get involved.

    Rest assured, the leftist, liberal, progressive, pro globalist, anti-God, Constitution hating enemies of freedom will not rest, and they are already preparing the propaganda machine and readying for battle again in 4 years.

  • MowJoe

    I too have been prepping for 2 yrs. I heard about the Smitah how a man said” I can’t see God kkicking the can down the road much longer”. We still have uncontrolled immigration, massive debt and a highly over valued stock market. That’sjust to name a few. I ddon’tkknow ifI aallowed myself to get programed or its my spirit but I feel very uneasy.

    I feel its a lack of faith and lack of money situation for most. Money continues to get tighter for most as wages decline or sit in limbo and costs go up up up, there might not be anything left for any measurable amount of preps. Plus myself included am suffering from prepper burn out, everyday there seems to be a new warning and nothing ever happens, don’t get me wrong I still prep its my lif style I just find myself careing less and not real reading these sites any more. You can only cry wolf so mny times.

  • HeyAHuman

    Well, when you’ve got people totally buying into MAGA, this is what happens.

  • JJR

    Most of us havent stopped spending, just shifted focus from food and shelter to weapons, ammo, and education. The current threat is our quickly radicalizing neighbors that are lashing out against everything Trump. Weve seen how the once peaceful BLM movement has morphed into something more violent and anti-govt.

    As Trump enacts policies distasteful to the far left and flexes his muscles against the cartels, gangs, and illegals were bound to see an increase in localized crime.

    Best to know the laws where you live regarding deadly force and right to carry. Train everyone in the house on gun safety and use. Increase the physical security and surveillance system in your house. Buy a German Shepard. Create and practice various emergency scenario’s with the entire family.

    Threats change like the wind, your ability to adapt and respond are essential to your families long term safety and quality of life.

What can the righteous do?” But the Lord is in his holy Temple; the Lord still rules from heaven. He watches everyone closely, examining every person on earth. The Lord examines both the righteous and the wicked. He hates those who love violence. He will rain down blazing coals and burning sulfur on the wicked, punishing them with scorching winds. For the righteous Lord loves justice. The virtuous will see his face.” (Psalm 11:1-7 NLT)

    I agree. People don’t seem to understand how much pain it’s gonna take to fix our economic problems. And Mr. Trump hasn’t exactly leveled with us. We are headed for a major reset. And nothing or nobody is gonna stop it. Soften the blow a little maybe. But completely stop it no. And Mr. Trump knows this. The people in the major cities are gonna suffer the most. People in the smaller communities like where I live will fair much better. We will help one another for the most part. We can hunt and grow our own food. I wish I could feel sorry for those people but I’m sorry I just don’t have the heart. But I will wish them luck and perhaps even say a prayer for them.

    OK Trump will now be our next president and many are happy, “but” please people do not think that our troubles are over!!! Do you think the “ELITE OF THIS WORLD” have let their guards down…NO…Think about this, they have been building their underground tunnels for decades, all decked out with the finest of everything, and on our tax dollars, they are spraying our skies with “CHEMTRAILS” daily poisoning our air, water & food with the most toxic poisons, they are “GEOENGINEERING OUR WEATHER,” they are poisoning our new born babies with toxic vaccinations, which in reality is a slow kill. THEY WANT US DEAD, THEY WANT TO A NEW WORLD ORDER.

    Can you not sense something “BIG…EXPLOSIVE…TERRIFYING” is coming???

    Now more than ever we need to stand fast on “GOD’S WORD” and keep watch for the signs of the times. Don’t be fooled into thinking that our lives are not in danger, Satan is here to “STEAL, KILL AND DESTROY.” If you truly believe in “GOD’S WORD” you will prepare “SPIRITUALLY AND PHYSICALLY.” And physically means “FOOD, WATER AND EVERYTHING THAT YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES NEED TO SURVIVE.”

  • UncleCarm

    There is another factor that may need to enter the equation. Many folks probably had a schedule to keep: that schedule being to buy certain items and do certain things prior to Nov. 8th. But, as we all know, prepping never stops, and there is always more that can be done. I think the drop in activity is just a pause, a breather, that will pick back up. Trump or no Trump, the world is still a fragile and dangerous place and folks will keep preparing, just probably at a less frantic pace.

  • Don_in_Odessa

    Trump or not the stage is already set.

    Cycles Michael … cycles. If they hold, we are in for wallop of some kind within the next ten years, most likely war. And, this time around comparatively speaking, we ain’t shooting with one shot rifles and hot air balloon lookouts. You know as well as I that the banksters will take us to war before they let the global debt based fiat system collapse without them having a scapegoat to blame it on. If we are lucky some kind of world wide calamity will take the place of war. I think men are crueler than nature. Whatever, it ain’t going to be pretty and I would wage that America’s immunity to war on it’s own soil has just about run it’s own course. Either from within or without God’s favor seems to be rapidly disappearing.

  • kweeuu63

    Good article. I think things will be better under Trump however, until we are rid of the Federal Reserve and fractional reserve fiat currency issued by a private banking cartel, such as the Fed and most other central banks in the world, we will NOT have peace and prosperity. War, poverty, social unrest, inflation, etc., etc., are the stock in trade of this system. Private central banking is the scourge of civilization and until the world somehow manages to make it illegal and completely stop it, there will always be huge socioeconomic and geopolitical problems in the world.

  • AKMARK

    Michael,
    You are right on! The Big Picture tells a totally different story. We think in a very small box if we only look at our issues right here in the USA, right now. Prep for no food, no fuel and no money. As the forces increase in the Black Sea, as Israel feels the heat from the rest of the world, people of the world will experience something they never before expected…God will not be mocked. We are moments away from destruction like this world has never known. The bible says we will experience the worse days since the beginning of time and there will be no other time such as this. If the bible says it, it will happen. I’d say, best be on the side of our Savior and the Cross of Christ than to say, ” Peace and safety has come…”
    Does anyone know what could happen? Like an asteroid hitting the earth, wiping out 1/3 of the population? Very possible.
    I’ll put my trust in Jesus for whatever the outcome.

  • Fleming_007

    Maybe its because most (everyone has their fanatics) preppers no longer attach themselves to the prepper term because its a label for: Crazy, paranoid, hates the government, stocks up on thousands of rounds and lives in the woods or stealth van and parks in random locations day after day. Unless you know for sure the people you talk about prepping with are also preppers, you don’t talk about it so as not to make people (brainwashed libs/pro Hilldawg) suspicious of you.

    • Scottie

      I’m a Prepper and am happy to have my name associated with the term. Some would say proud. Even some of my own friends and family think I’m “overreacting” but that’s fine… I really don’t care anymore what they think… One saying in particular changed my attitude towards that mindset…
      “I’m no longer interested in awakening the masses! The masses made it clear that they are not interested. I’m here to connect like minds and awaken those that want to learn!”
      I simply wish everyone else the best and will certainly pray for their well being… Just don’t show up here at the last minute… I won’t be able to help at that point. I continue to get my preps in order (It’s a never ending job) as best I can. I can certainly take comfort in knowing that when it does hit… I’m in much better shape than I was 8 years ago when I first started. Maybe I’ll never need them, I certainly hope I’m wrong… But the way things and society has been going… I’ve been on mark. May the Lord have mercy on us all… God Bless!

    I see the price of everything prepper related has fallen. Price on firearms are down and ammunition is starting to fall as well. This looks like the perfect opportunity to stock up.

    The only expectation I have of Trump is that he replace Scalia with a like minded conservative, Aside from that I’m quite capable of taking care of myself. If the government will protect the currency and the borders I got the rest.

  • Fred

    I think you should read up on modern monetary theory. It will work, but only if the government has far more power. Since the collapse you expect would result in carnage on a near apocalyptic scale we will cede the necessary power to the government. The necessary power lies in the emergency power of the Federal government granted by laws already on the books.

    For a true collapse to occur, events must be beyond the power of government to control (hint: war). That will eventually happen, but it’s probably a few decades out yet.

    Insurance is Insurance. Simply having it gives one peace of mind. Consider other events where having this insurance will be an advantage, loss of employment, injury or accident.

    If the left didn’t have double standards, they’d have no standards at all.

    One thing to keep in mind, this is a reprieve, NOT a pardon.

    The demographic biological warfare weapon is still growing at an exponential rate. Trump will be the LAST President elected because of the White vote.

    The US will look just like combination of Mexico and Haiti in a few short years, both in population AND in government & economy.

  • Still hard at prepping here in the Arizona mountains, still turning FRNs into hard assets with every paycheck since 2008.

    – Ordered another case of freeze-dried long-term-storage food from Honeyville during the first week of December.

    – bought some more ammo that was on sale during the second week of December

    – Ordered a whole boatload of veterinary antibiotics this week, before the FDA ban goes into effect next week. Will order more with my next paycheck this coming week. (No, there is no guarantee that those will keep us healthy, but there they are likely to be much more effective than FRNs.)

    – Ordered a new Leatherwood tactical scope, flip-up scope covers, and a mount for my new M14S from Sportsman’s Guide just this week. QD rings are already here.

    – gifts this year include new camouflage clothes, and even a new camouflage laptop bag for my wife. I cannot wait for her to open it and then tell her to look inside the bag to see the awesome new laptop I also bought for her. Since we both work from home over the Internet, I look at buying her a faster laptop as being just another contribution to making us more self-sufficient.

    So, it never stops. We chose to move away from the Phoenix death trap and up to a very small unincorporated community in a very rural part of the Arizona mountains because living in our dream Retreat home full-time was the lifestyle that we truly longed for.

    We have not “let down our guard”, but we have joy, calm, peace, tranquility, and a sense of truly belonging where we live. We no longer feel apprehensive about the future, we feel like we are ready no matter what may come our way. That kind of peace and calm are impossible to find while living in a big city.

    We are no longer the newly-arrived “outsiders”, we have become a part of our local community over the years.

    I am a member of our local American Legion Post. My wife is a member of the Auxiliary. We both volunteer with our local Amateur Radio group and we are well prepped for Emergency Communications, even after all the grids go down. We participate in practice comms nets at least once per week. We have pitched in and helped other HAMs put up their antennas and they have helped me do the same here at our place. I helped my neighbor re-shingle his roof and he now reloads ammo for me.

    Prepping is not just an activity, it is community. Prepping is not just something that we “do”, it is who we are.

    Yeah with a child rapist and fraud that will be president in a few days, I definitely feel safer.

  • Meghan Calahan

    Yes, being tolerant of intolerance makes total sense. It’s how we got decades of civil unrest so why fix what wasn’t broke??? #iweep #saltywhitetearsarethesaddest
