Power Grids “Straining” As Massive Heatwave Strikes The West

Power grids in the Western part of the United States are “straining” to keep up with demand as record-setting heatwaves impact large swaths of the region. California is in yet another “state of emergency” although this time, it isn’t the coronavirus scamdemic the governor is panicking people over: it’s the reduction of energy use.

Governor Gavin Newsome of California has declared a state of emergency and demanded residents reduce their energy consumption as the heat soars and air conditions are being run 24/7.  Political parasites are demanding everyone use less power even as grid operators say the grid is in better shape to withstand surging demands than in previous years, according to a report by the mainstream media outlet, Yahoo News.

Despite the emergency declaration on Thursday, California ISO CEO Elliot Mainzer said the western power grid has since been upgraded to withstand the changing conditions, according to a report by AP News. 

The California Independent System Operator (California ISO), the corporation in charge of running California’s electric grid, asked residents on Thursday to conserve electricity to avoid the rolling blackouts that happened in 2020. Brandon Buckingham, a meteorologist at AccuWeather, told Insider that the heat is exacerbated due to ongoing drought conditions.

“The continued heat and dryness will undoubtedly have a negative impact on livelihoods across the western United States,” Buckingham said. “Some impacts include (but are not limited to): worsening drought conditions, more frequent and more intense wildfires, increased energy demand for cooling, rolling blackouts due to overuse of power grid, water-use restrictions, increased difficulties for area farmers.”

More impact on livelihoods? Isn’t that what the ruling class did to the public during the coronavirus hoax?  It sure looks like there’s a war on the people who don’t rule…

Regardless, we should all have a plan in place in case we have to face a massive “grid down” situation for a sustained amount of time. Please prepare and store water, especially if you don’t have a well.  Please make sure you have ways to cool off without air conditioning.  If the heat goes over tripe digits for a long time, people could suffer heatstroke and have major health concerns.

Prepping Tips: Long & Short Term Water Storage

How To Stay Cool When The Grid Goes Down During A Heatwave

These Off-Grid Summer Strategies Could Save Your Food Supply and Keep You Safe

Prepare and stay alert. The media is often warning of the gird and its weaknesses. Between that and the new “delta variant,” they are really trying to keep us afraid.  Stay calm and prepared. Have a plan and never stop using your discernment and critical thinking.

Animals Drought food prices food supply government is slavery Headline News Intelwars Lake Mead mega-drought north dakota surges wake up water shortages Weather Modification

Ranchers Sell Off Cattle And Farmers Idle Hundreds Of Thousands Of Acres As America’s Drought Emergency Escalates

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog.

In my entire lifetime, this is the worst that drought conditions have ever been in the western half of the country.  During the past 20 years, the amount of territory in the West considered to be suffering from exceptional drought has never gone higher than 11 percent until now.  Today, that number is sitting at 27 percent.  The term “mega-drought” is being thrown around a lot these days to describe what is happening, but this isn’t just a drought.  This is a true national emergency, and it is really starting to affect our food supply.

Just look at what is happening up in North Dakota.  The vast majority of the state is either in the worst level of drought or the second-worst level of drought, and ranchers are auctioning off their cattle by the thousands

“Normally this time of the year, we’re probably looking at 400-600 head and a lot of times would be every other week,” said former auctioneer Ron Torgerson.

On Sunday and Monday, more than 4,200 head of cattle were sold at Rugby Livestock and Auction.

Needless to say, ranchers in North Dakota don’t want to get rid of their cattle, but the drought has pushed prices for hay and corn so high that many of them simply have no choice.

One of those that has already been forced to sell a large number of cattle is rancher David Bohl

As the drought continues, the price of hay and corn has gone way up. It’s more expensive for ranchers to try and supplement feed than it is to sell the cattle.

Bohl has already sold 200 of his head in the last month.

“Everybody is in the same situation, they’re going to have to sell probably 25 to 50% of them because there’s nowhere to go with them we just got no food to feed them,” Bohl said.

As cattle herds shrink all over the western half of the country, this is going to push beef prices significantly higher than they are right now.

And in many areas, they are already at ridiculous levels.

Meanwhile, the drought continues to push the water level in Lake Mead into the danger zone.  According to CBS News, Lake Mead will soon hit the “lowest level ever recorded”…

For more than eight decades, the iconic Hoover Dam has relied on water from Nevada’s Lake Mead to cover up its backside. But now, at age 85, it finds itself uncomfortably exposed. Much of the water the dam is supposed to be holding back is gone.

“This is like a different world,” said Pat Mulroy, the former head of the Southern Nevada Water Authority. She told CBS News senior national and environmental correspondent Ben Tracy that Lake Mead, the nation’s largest reservoir, is on track to soon hit its lowest level ever recorded.

Since the year 2000, the water level in Lake Mead has declined by a whopping 30 feet, and it is currently at just 37 percent of capacity.

The dam’s hydropower output has already been reduced by about 25 percent, and once the water level gets low enough it will stop producing electricity completely.

In addition, many farmers that rely on water from Lake Mead are facing a very uncertain future at this point…

For the first time ever, the federal government is expected to declare a water shortage on the lower Colorado River later this summer. That will force automatic cuts to the water supply for Nevada and Arizona starting in 2022. Homeowners have higher priority and, at first, won’t feel the pain as badly as farmers.

Dan Thelander is a second-generation family farmer in Arizona’s Pinal County. The water to grow his corn and alfalfa fields comes from Lake Mead. “If we don’t have irrigation water, we can’t farm,” he said. “So, next year we are going to get about 25% less water, means we’re going to have to fallow or not plant 25% of our land.”

Unless something changes, Thelander and other farmers in the region could potentially have all water cut off in 2023.

That is just two years away.

Of course, there are many farmers in California that have already been informed that they will not be getting any water allocated to them at all here in 2021.  It is being projected that farmers in the state will not grow anything on 500,000 acres this year, and that is really bad news because California grows more than a third of our vegetables and two-thirds of our fruits and nuts

Along with wildfire risks, short water supply is putting immense pressure on the state’s agricultural industry, which grows over a third of the country’s vegetables and supplies two-thirds of the fruits and nuts in the US. Already farmers are culling crops and fallowing fields in anticipation of water shortages. Karen Ross, California’s food and agriculture secretary, told the California Chamber of Commerce that she expected 500,000 acres would have to sit idle this year.

So what are we going to do if this mega-drought persists several more years and agricultural production in California is dramatically reduced for an extended period of time?

I am sure that some wise guy will post a comment after this article about importing more fruits and vegetables from South America, but South America is experiencing a historic drought too.

In fact, at this moment Brazil is experiencing the “worst drought in nearly a century”, and scientists are anticipating that it will not end any time soon.

Needless to say, the droughts that we are witnessing are setting the stage for many of the things that I have been warning about, and the future of agricultural production in the western hemisphere is looking quite bleak for the foreseeable future.

In the short term, this crisis is going to result in substantially higher prices at the grocery store.  I know that grocery prices have already risen to painful levels, but the truth is that food prices will never be as low as they are right now.

So I am encouraging everyone to stock up while they still can.

As I have said so many times, we really struggle to feed everyone in the world during the best of years, and 2021 is definitely not one of the best of years.

Global food supplies are getting tighter and tighter, and this definitely has enormous implications for our future.

Colonial Pipeline Back Up, But It Will Take SEVERAL DAYS To Resupply

The Colonial Pipeline is back up and running. It’ll take several days to resupply those empty gas stations. But what’s here to stay are the higher prices in fuel.

The Federal Reserve has been hiding the inflation in the energy sector and this was either a planned event or very convenient for the ruling class. This agenda is in full force, and Greg Mannarino calls it “scapegoat economics” because we are not allowed to know that this is by design and done by the government to grab control and exhibit power over people.

Greg Mannarino: “Scapegoat Economics” & The Dark Secret We Are NOT Supposed To Know

The gasoline shortages, due to this convenient cyber attack on the pipeline, have hit the American south the hardest. States such as North Carolina, Virginia, and Florida have each issued emergency declarations this week as more than 1,000 gas stations in several states ran dry. As of Wednesday afternoon, 65% of gas stations in North Carolina were without fuel, as well as a staggering 78% in the state’s Greenville/Spartanburg/Asheville/Anderson metro area, according to GasBuddy, an app that helps motorists find good deals at the pump. The same was true for 44% of stations in Virginia, and 43% in South Carolina, while the national average for a gallon of gasoline exceeded $3 for the first time since 2014, according to a report by RT. 

Many people are figuring out that all of this is part of the overall agenda. As PayDro V, a YouTube creator says, “there are no coincidences.” Unless you take the vaccine and die, of course…

This pipeline shutdown could be just the beginning.  We warned that this was convenient and ticked off several boxes for the agenda.  Is it a false flag? That’s up to you to decide, because we know the rulers and their puppets in the media will not be telling us.  We have to figure this stuff out for ourselves.

Who’s To Blame For The Pipeline Being Down? Russia, Of Course

On that note, it does look like some people are figuring it out, but still, many more are fast asleep to what their future entails.

As always, stay alert and remain prepared. It is difficult to say what will happen next and just how bad things will get. Those who desire ultimate control and the permanent enslavement of humanity have not given up and we should not expect them to. It seems like it has only just begun.

agenda attacks benjamin netanyahu Colonial Pipeline darkness diesel doom and gloom food shortages food supply fuel gas stations gasoline Gaza global events Headline News IDF inflation Intelwars ISRAEL Israeli Defense Nightmare order ab chao order out of chaos Orwellian rockets tel aviv Violence War

Do You Get The Feeling That Events Happening Now Are Leading Us Into An Endless Global Nightmare?

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. 

2021 was supposed to be the year that life went back to normal.  Obviously, that is not happening, and so a lot of prominent voices out there are going to be forced to update their narratives.  Global events have really started to accelerate, and so many of the things that the “doom and gloomers” have been warning about are starting to happen right in front of our eyes.

For example, on my websites, I have been talking about Israel a lot in recent months, and now it appears that the region is on the brink of war.  So far, more than 700 rockets have been fired into Israel from Gaza, but by the time you read this article, that number will probably be even higher.  In response, the IDF has conducted a series of dramatic strikes inside Gaza, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is promising “to attack harder and increase the pace of attacks”

‘Hamas will be hit in ways that it does not expect,’ Netanyahu said. ‘We have eliminated commanders, hit many important targets and we have decided to attack harder and increase the pace of attacks.’

Joe Biden and other world leaders are begging for peace, but neither side appears to be inclined to back down.

Every time Israel retaliates, Hamas just launches even more rockets at Israeli cities, and they are insisting that this is their “right”

“We have the right to respond to the Israeli offensive and protect the interests of our people as long as the Israeli occupation continues the escalation,” Hamas said in a statement.

So here we go.

As I discussed yesterday, this situation has the potential to get wildly out of control very rapidly.

On Tuesday, the skies above Tel Aviv looked like something out of a science fiction movie as Israel’s Iron Dome intercepted countless incoming rockets from Gaza.  Could you imagine living in fear that a rocket could explode right next to you at any moment?

If that was happening in this country, millions of Americans would be screaming for Biden to nuke somebody.

Meanwhile, the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack has caused massive gasoline shortages up and down the east coast of the United States.  On Tuesday evening, the Drudge Report breathlessly declared that more than 1,000 gas stations had run out of gasoline, and Zero Hedge was reporting that some people were waiting in line for up to five hours in a desperate attempt to fill up their vehicles.

Up until recently, just about the only thing that we were missing from the economy of the 1970s was the long gas lines, but now here we are.

North America’s largest petroleum pipeline has been shut down for just a few days, and now much of the southeastern quadrant of the country is absolutely paralyzed.

Do you think that there is a lesson to be learned here?

Of course, there is.  Once again we see how incredibly vulnerable we are to any sort of a major disruption.  If the unprecedented power grid failure in Texas a few months ago was not enough of a wake-up call for you, this definitely should be.

At this point, we are being told it is uncertain whether or not the Colonial Pipeline will be able to restore operations by this weekend…

If the Colonial Pipeline is not back in business by the weekend, prices could continue to rise at the pump and there will be broader localized fuel shortages across the southeast and mid-Atlantic regions.

Eventually, the flow of gasoline will be restored and everyone along the east coast will be able to fill up their vehicles again.

But the crazy inflation that we are witnessing right is not going to go away.

For years, economic “doom and gloomers” have been warning that if we kept recklessly creating, borrowing, and spending money that really bad things would happen.

How many times have we heard about “the death of the dollar” and the dangers of wildly inflating our currency?

Well, it turns out that the “doom and gloomers” were dead-on accurate.  Inflation is one of the biggest stories of 2021 so far, and we just got another confirmation of how bad things are getting out there…

The median price for a single-family home in the U.S. rose the most on record in the first quarter, as buyers fought over a dearth of inventory, according to the National Association of Realtors.

Prices jumped 16.2% from a year earlier to a record high of $319,200. The growth eclipsed the 14.8% rate in the fourth quarter, which was the highest in data going back to 1989, the group said in a report Tuesday.

But at least home prices are not rising as fast as the price of cotton is.

If you can believe it, the price of cotton is up more than 50 percent over the past year.

Of course the price of corn is rising even more rapidly.  As I discussed the other day, the price of corn is up about 50 percent just since the turn of the year.

Needless to say, lumber still has everyone else beat.  The price of lumber has actually risen more than 200 percent over the past 12 months.

A lot of comparisons have been made to the horrible inflation that the U.S. experienced during the 1970s, but really I think that we need to go all the way back to the 1930s for a more accurate parallel to our current situation.

At this point, we are becoming more like the Weimar Republic with each passing day.

But if you think that things are really bad now, just wait, because you ain’t seen nothing yet.

Everywhere you look, systems are failing, society is crumbling and evil is growing.  Even the Secret Service, who are supposed to be the best of the best, are now plagued by endless scandals and widespread incompetence.

This is not a drill.  A widespread societal collapse is now underway, and it is going to get progressively worse.

This is the time of our endless nightmare, but nobody is going to ever be allowed to wake up from it.

Food Prices Are Rising Aggressively, And Even The Corporate Media Is Admitting That It Is Only Going To Get Worse

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog

Food prices are outrageous now, but they are only going to go higher.  Earlier today, I came across an NBC News article entitled “Get ready for higher grocery bills for the rest of the year.” I thought that it was strange that a piece put out by the corporate media sounded like it could have come straight from my website because I have been sounding the alarm about higher food prices for quite some time.

Surprisingly, the NBC News article was generally right on point.  Thanks to a variety of factors, food prices have been rising aggressively, and that is going to continue for the foreseeable future.

According to the Labor Department, consumer prices overall were up 0.6 percent from February to March…

Consumer prices shot higher in March, given a boost by a strong economic recovery and year-over-year comparisons to a time when the Covid-19 pandemic was about to throttle the U.S. economy, the Labor Department reported Tuesday.

The consumer price index rose 0.6% from the previous month but 2.6% from the same period a year ago. The year-over-year gain is the highest since August 2018 and was well above the 1.7% recorded in February.

0.6 percent may not sound like that much, but if you multiply that figure by 12 months you get an annualized rate of  7.2 percent.

Of course the government has changed the way the inflation rate is calculated dozens of times over the years, and at this point everyone knows that the official number greatly understates what is really happening in the economy.

In fact, John Williams of shadowstats.com says that if the rate of inflation was still calculated the way that it was back in 1980, it would be over 10 percent right now.

In other words, we have now reached Jimmy Carter levels of inflation.

One of the places where we are really starting to see inflation show up is in food prices.  Here are just a few examples

Before the pandemic began, the national average for a pound of bacon in January 2020 was $4.72. By last month, that price had soared to $5.11, according to exclusive supermarket point of sale data from NielsenIQ. Ground beef is up $5.26 a pound from $5.02. Bread is up $2.66 a loaf from $2.44.

So why are food prices increasing like this?

Yahoo News recently posted an article that listed four explanations

1. Plummeting food production
2. Transportation tumult
3. More eating at home
4. Wild weather

Moving forward, the pandemic will continue to suppress global food production, commodity prices will likely keep climbing, and increasingly wild weather patterns will certainly cause even more damage to crops.

All of these factors are making it more expensive for food companies to operate, and as NBC News has noted, food companies are starting to pass along those costs to consumers…

Issues like higher gas prices, increasing transport costs that get passed on to consumers, especially for items like bread, are only going up as driving increases faster than oil production. So grocery prices are likely to remain on the higher end of estimates for at least the rest of the year, Olvera said. Producers may eventually increase their output in order to capture the heightened demand, but that won’t happen until toward the end of this year, Olvera said.

Of course, it isn’t just the United States that is wrestling with these problems.

Food prices are actually rising far more rapidly in much of the rest of the world, and we recently learned that global food prices spiked for a tenth month in a row during March…

Global food commodity prices rose in March, marking their tenth consecutive monthly increase, with quotations for vegetable oils and dairy products leading the rise, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) reported today.

The FAO Food Price Index, which tracks monthly changes in the international prices of commonly-traded food commodities, averaged 118.5 points in March, 2.1 percent higher than in February and reaching its highest level since June 2014.

Those at the very bottom of the economic food chain are being hurt the most by rising food prices.

We have already started to see food riots in some areas, and one relief organization is warning that millions of people in East Africa are now on the verge of starvation

Over 7 million people across six East African countries are at the cusp of starvation as communities have faced existential threats from violence, flooding, the pandemic and locust infestation, the evangelical humanitarian organization World Vision has warned.

Needless to say, all of these developments are perfectly consistent with the warnings that I issued in Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America.

Even during the best of years, we really struggle to feed the entire planet, and 2021 is definitely not going to be a great year for global food production.

The good news is that there is still plenty of food in our supermarkets right now, and that means that we have a window of opportunity.

I know that food prices may seem ridiculous, but they aren’t ever going to be any lower than they are right now.

I would encourage you to use this window of opportunity to stock up at these relatively low prices, because the price increases are only going to become even more painful as our leaders continue to flood the system with more cash.

“Right Now Is Bad” – Diseases Plague China’s Pig Herd In Dark Winter

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge. 

Those Who Planned The Enslavement of Mankind Warn Of “A Dark Winter” For Us

China’s pig herd is on alert again as disease outbreaks ramp up this winter. Reuters reports the new outbreak of diseases could hamper the hog recovery after the African swine fever contagion a few years ago wiped out about half of the country’s herd.

Government data shows China’s pig herd expanded by 31% in 2020. But with new outbreaks of swine fever in the northeast and northern provinces and rising Porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED), the widespread increase in diseases this winter has been very concerning to farmers.

“The disease challenge right now is bad,” said one farmer, who declined to give his name to Reuters because the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has banned him to speak with the media.

Beijing has spent the last year restoring its pig herd and pork supply as the world’s biggest consumer. For months, the CCP has kept the outbreaks of various diseases under wraps.

Pan Chenjun, a senior analyst at Rabobank in Beijing, said, “swine fever never stopped but recently there’s been even more, and more other diseases.”

“The high price in December was at least partly driven by disease,” Chenjun said, as well as rising demand ahead of the Lunar New Year holiday.

Spot hog prices in major producing province Shandong <JCI-HOG-SHOUGN> recently jumped to 36 yuan ($5.57) per kg, the highest since August and nearly three times the price before African swine fever was reported in late 2018.

In response the swine fever, farmers had to increase their piglet herds for a speedy recovery. These farmers are raising young pigs that are highly susceptible to PED and other diseases.

“That has increased the intensity of this winter’s outbreak because so many new farms, built to replace the swine fever-reduced herds, are stocked with young females that have passed the virus to their offspring,” she said. 

“It can kill one month of suckling pigs just like that,” she added.

Beijing expects its pig herd to recover by the first half of 2021. By November, herd levels reached 90% of their levels pre-swine fever outbreak. But now rising piglet prices suggest a shortage could materialize, which may hit pork output later this year.

USDA reports China has made record purchases of US corn products, sending prices to levels not seen since 2013. Judging by the dark winter of diseases in China’s pig herds, Beijing could soon ramp up its pork purchases from US farmers.

UK Food Shortages Likely As Lockdown Over “Mutated” Strain of COVID-19

In an attempt to prevent the spread of a new, more transmissible strain of the COVID-19 virus in the United Kingdom, harsher lockdowns have been imposed on the public, the food supply chain is at serious risk of breaking.

The people in the UK have used the government to make sure the supply networks stay operational, while the French government suspended all travel from the UK for 48 hours from 11 p.m. on Sunday night (midnight Paris time), including travel linked to goods transport by road, air, sea, or rail.

10 Blackout-Proof Preps You Need To Get Through Extreme Weather Emergencies

This article was originally published by Tess Pennington at Ready Nutrition. 

Generally speaking, the American lifestyle is largely dependent upon the power grid. And when the grid goes down during the hottest times of the year, our eyes are opened to the need to have essential off-grid preps on hand to survive.

A sweltering heat wave that has enveloped most parts of California causing a surge of demand on the power grid. During the hottest part of the day on Friday, energy companies made the decision to start rolling blackouts – something that has not been done for 20 years.

The heat wave is ramping up this weekend, and some areas could reach triple-digit record highs, weather.com meteorologist Jonathan Belles said, adding that the temperatures are more typical of mid-summer than August.

An excessive heat warning was issued by the National Weather Service for Friday through Tuesday, and the combination of heat and wildfires prompted air quality warnings as well.

Ozone pollution in some areas reached levels Friday afternoon not seen in 10 years, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Gonzales said several different factors would play into whether the rolling blackouts continue.

“We’re dealing with weather, clouds, wildfires … these are quickly evolving situations, quickly changing,” she told the AP.

The situation will be evaluated on a day to day basis, she said.

Many believed rolling blackouts were a thing of the past, but all that changed Friday when the lights went out on 350,000 thousand homes. Many were caught off guard and felt PG&E had not fully communicated the likelihood of this occurring. But the worst is yet to come as more rolling blackouts are planned for the coming week. Excessive heat warnings are forecasted through Wednesday for Central Valley, Delta, foothills, and mountains southwestern of Shasta County to western Colusa County.

With scorching temperatures forecasted in many parts of the country, it is important to know that certain preparedness items can provide safety and protection when you are off the grid during the hottest part of the year.

Priorities During a Blackout
  1. Safety concerns – Heat-related deaths are the number 1 weather-related killer in the United States. Therefore, when a rolling blackout occurs, make sure you find the coolest part of the home for the family to be in. Set up battery-operated box fans in essential rooms, provide flashlights if needed, drink lots of fluids, and monitor those who may be at risk for heat injuries. Here are some tips to stay cool during a rolling blackout. Many preparedness experts suggest always having at least a half a tank in gas and this is a perfect example why. If rolling blackouts last longer than intended and you are feeling that your health is becoming affected, go to your car and sit in the air conditioning to cool off.
  2. Securing food supply – The next priority is protecting your food supply during a power disruption. Keep in mind the season, and the geographic locale where you reside with regards to your food supply and food shopping. During a rolling blackout, minimize the opening of refrigerators and freezers. While most of your perishable food supply will keep for at least 24 more hours in the refrigerator be prepared to do what you can to save your food supply if your refrigerator and freezer cannot hold cold temperatures. As an added measure, add a thermometer to the refrigerator to monitor the temperature. If the temperatures start increasing above a certain point, plan to move the food into the freezer. In an article on the subject, Jeremiah Johnson makes some great suggestions on using up your perishable food supply.
  3. Protecting appliances from power surges – Generators are great to have around – especially if you find yourself in an off-grid situation! Those that are dependent on power for medical equipment are especially vulnerable during power outages. Portable or permanently installed standby generators provide a temporary source of power during emergency power outages. However, if you do not know how to use these tools properly, they can be dangerous. When plugging in appliances to generators pay careful attention to wattage allowed. Follow these safety tips to stay safe.

10 Blackout-Proof Preps You Need

If you have not done so already, take inventory of your light preparedness supplies, checking to see if batteries work and that you have extra supplies of batteries in case the blackout lasts longer than intended. Last year, I went through a similar circumstance and highlighted the preparedness items used and even the mistakes I made in my preparedness plans that needed to be improved on. Here is a list of the 10 essential blackout-proof supplies I used to get through my off-grid emergencies.

  1. Generator with gasoline
  2. Surge protector
  3. 2 battery-powered lanterns (for the communal areas in the home)
  4. Flashlights (1 for each family member)
  5. Battery-powered headlamp
  6. 24 Cyalume light sticks
  7. An assortment of candles
  8. Solar-powered battery charger
  9. Extra batteries
  10. Battery-powered fans 

Other alternative light considerations could be solar garden lights which can be charged outdoors and then brought in the evening to use.  Oil lamps are another lighting alternative and an added benefit to this is you can recycle used cooking oil or use rendered fat to power these. Also consider having a supply of long-burning candles, and solar-powered flashlights.

I hope this helps some of you better prepare for off-grid events. Please check out The Prepper’s Blueprint and 52-Weeks to Preparedness for more information on preparing.

Coronavirus COVID-19 elitists Emergency Preparedness enslavement Fear food shortages food supply Government Headline News Intelwars localize Logic manipulated no fear organize locally plandemic Politicians Preparedness realize ruling class scamdemic Second wave sheep to slaughter stand up submission suffer tyranny use fear to control wake up willingly

Supply Chains: Food & Toilet Paper Supply Were Disrupted By The Ruling Class, Not A Virus

A lot of articles out there are titled something like “the coronavirus disrupted supply chains.”  That headline is intentionally misleading.  As we know by now, the mainstream media is doing what they can to keep us all in a constant state of fear so the elites can finish enslaving us all.

Just like the flu or HIV didn’t disrupt supply chains, neither can the novel coronavirus.  But blaming the virus is how the media continues to pump up the fear factor and keep the public subdued about what’s to come, and even beg for their enslavement. The media has been readying the public for additional fear of the “second wave” too.  All of this is important.  The fear of the virus has subsided dramatically and people are figuring our that the food supply is being manipulated by the powers-that-shouldn’t-be to produce even more fear.

The Science of Fear: How The Elitists Use it to Control Us & How to Break Free

Do not fall for it! Now is not the time to be living terrified for any reason! They have shown that it will be used to force humanity to suffer as much as possible.  Instead, know that you can prepare for a food shortage, and work toward self-reliance.  Work within your local community to help those who need it. Localizing some of the preparations will definitely help when the ruling class decides to completely cut off all food.

Prepping For The Upcoming Government-Induced Food Shortages

Have items that can be bartered and make sure you can protect what you have stored.

Don’t fall for the fear, but keep your eyes open.  We all need to know what’s happening so we can protect from it and place the blame where it belongs.

Will It Take Food Shortages For People To Stand Up To Tyranny?

Safety has always been the rallying cry of tyrants and that is no different now.  People all over the world are waking up to what the power-hungry elitists and politicians have done to us for decades, but many are still sleeping. Will it take these orchestrated food shortages to wake them up? Or will they continue down a path of slavery with no hope?

Exposed: Lies, Corruption, & Pay To Keep The Public In a Fear-Induced Panic For Ultimate Control

We actually wouldn’t have a food shortage if it wasn’t being created on purpose to push the public further into a panicked and fearful state.  It’s just too obvious to ignore any longer. -SHTFPlan

Bill Gates & Food Corporations Worked To End Livestock Production, Pushed Lab Grown Meat

Do you wonder why the media wants you panicked about the food supply and why farms are slaughtering and aborting animals? Bill Gates and food giant Tyson have both heavily backed lab-grown meat research.

The death and destruction and economic terrorism wages on humanity has reached truly horrifying levels. These elitists want total global domination.

Tyson Foods Warns “Food Supply Chain Is Breaking”

Millions Of Of Pigs, Chickens And Cattle Are Being Euthanized While The Media Warns “Shortages” Are Coming

As the United States faces unprecedented meat shortages due to processing plants going offline in response to government commands because of the coronavirus, a long-standing globalist agenda to halt meat consumption is being fulfilled. Lockdowns have created a situation in which farmers have nowhere to send their product, and in turn, millions of animals are being slaughtered. Additionally, vegetables that would normally end up on store shelves are rotting in the field, according to a report by Activist Post

Tyson foods recently warned that the food supply chain is “breaking.” The powers that should not be will allow any amount of food shorage talk to go around, especially once the mainstream media and governments begin to use it as yet another way to panic the population of the world into surrendering to slavery without so much as a whimper. Twitter has said they will help the elitists control the narrative about the food supply, just like Big Tech has helped induce fear at the commands of tyrants over the coronavirus.

Lab-grown meat producers are hoping that the COVID-19 outbreak could boost public acceptance. As Bill Gates was working to establish a worldwide digital ID system prior to the pandemic, he was also working to end meat production and funding lab-grown “meat.”

In this 2019 report, lab-grown meat was projected to hit store shelves by 2022.

Wake up and realize this had all been carefully crafted by the cabal of elitists that want everyone enslaved.  The sooner humanity rises and gets off its knees, the easier it will on all of us.

If You Want To Be Free, Stop Complying With Tyranny

Asset Bailouts Big Corporations Coronavirus food supply Gold government response Headline News Intelwars Keith Neumeyer pandemic Precious Metals Preparedness prices safe haven Silver small businesses

Neumeyer: “This is the Perfect Storm! Governments Have Put Themselves Into A Corner”

Keith Neumeyer recently sat down for an interview with Crush the Street and made it clear that mints are being overwhelmed by the demand for silver.  Neumeyer also opined on the government’s response to the pandemic saying “governments can’t keep businesses closed.”

And we’d agree with him. At some point, even if restrictions are never lifted, people will leave their homes to look for work.  Humans cannot be locked up house arrest for much longer, and have already been asked to endure too much. Neumeyer said “already they [the government] are destroying small businesses…” and “governments can’t prevent everyone from going bankrupt.”

Unfortunately, the big corporations will be fine and come out even bigger as the small businesses go under and are no longer able to stay in business. This is crony corporatism at it’s finest. Neumeyer says the government has overreacted and caused massive damage that cannot be undone.

Coronavirus Crisis: The Virus Will Bankrupt More People Than It Kills

Vegetables are not being depleted, but processed foods are not available. People have bought them out.  Most others have has a similar experience at their own stores, says Neumeyer.

Once the conversation shifts from food and toilet paper to precious metals, Neumeyer says “this is the perfect storm.” He says “people have realized that governments are not going to stop printing money.  They have put themselves into a corner.” What does that mean? “We’re going to be awash in currency no matter where you are on the planet. Which means you must own gold. I think gold’s your safe haven.”

“I still believe silver is going to outperform gold in the next couple years,” Neumeyer added. There is no mint in the world that has $12 silver because the mining industry didn’t sell any silver at those prices.  (Neumeyer’s companies never sold silver in the $12 dollar range despite the spot price being that low.) There’s no point in selling at these prices, so companies are just going to hoard it as opposed to take a loss on it.

create DIY fit food supply garden beds grow vegetables grow your own food Headline News Heirloom Seeds Intelwars Mel Bartholomew Preparedness self sustaining soil Space square foot gardens supply chians survival

Preparedness: How To Begin “Square Foot” Gardening

Square foot gardening is a simple method of creating small, orderly, and highly productive kitchen gardens. You may have even seen them before.  With people leaning more and more towards preparedness, their popularity is growing.

It was invented by backyard gardener, retired engineer, and efficiency expert Mel Bartholomew as a better way to grow a vegetable garden, and it became a huge hit when he introduced the idea to the gardening public in 1981 in his book Square Foot Gardening.  The best part about this approach is that you only need a small amount of space to grow an efficient garden – and it can be done indoors.  This is valuable to those who live in cooler climates.

The basic concept is to create a small garden bed (4 feet by 4 feet or 4 feet by 8 feet are common sizes) and divide it into a grid of 1-foot squares, which you manage individually. Seeds or seedlings of each kind of vegetable are planted in one or more squares, at a density based on plant size (e.g., you’d plant about 16 radish seeds per square, but only one tomato plant). Since there are no paths, there is no wasted space, and the soil in the bed stays loose because you never step on it. If you aren’t able to build your own garden bed, there places you can purchase premade beds.

The one huge advantage to making the garden bed yourself is that you can build it to fit where you want it and the amount of food you want to grow.  The one disadvantage is that startup costs can be high even if you make your own beds. The expense of building even a small raised bed and filling it with soilless mix has the potential add up quickly. If you do have good soil to work with, stick with the original method and form in-ground garden beds for much less money.

The following guideline may be of use to you.  These can be found all over the internet with minimal searching.  It’s easy enough to find one that can work for you and the space you’ve got to work with.

Gardening and preparedness have both become more popular in the wake of the government’s overreaction to the coronavirus, which has crippled food supply lines, and impoverished millions already.  Self-sustainable lifestyles were not popular even two months ago, but all that has rapidly changed.  Seeds are not impossible to come by, but we suggest you choose heirloom varieties, so you can save your own seeds and replant them indefinitely.

4 Reasons To Choose Heirloom Seeds For Your Garden

Heirloom seeds will also produce vegetables that will be easier to regrow in water.

Preparedness: How To Regrow Vegetables In Water

Taking small steps toward a more self-sustainable lifestyle and being less dependent on government handouts and the weak food supply chain will give people a leg up when the coming economic collapse truly makes its impact felt.
