Are you ready for the Purge? Watch and discern

Confession: this is the most alarmed I've been in 40 years. I've debated whether to even address this here, but the bottom line is we are all at major risk right now and you need to know.

Our American institutions are under attack. All three branches of the government are in turmoil. The Deep State is on the move and the American way is now only a quaint bit of history. Comparatively speaking, the protesters in the street don't even move the needle.

I was an intell community insider LONG ago. Friends of friends have confirmed that this is the time to either hunker down or prepare to go to war, depending on your situation. Pay close attention and discern the truth ... know that the media is not your friend.

WAR-DRUMS CRESCENDO ... It's Time

Some folks are so wrapped up in the most ridiculous excuse for a presidential season ever seen that they are oblivious to the fact that in recent weeks we have stepped into a global situation so serious it is being compared to the Cuban Missile Crisis.

This morning, CNN is reporting that this is not even just another Cold War with proxies doing battle on the behalf of nuclear powers Russia and the U.S., but that it is now open military conflict between the powers themselves in Syria and potentially elsewhere.

How is that possible, you might ask, since nary a peep is being reported in the mainstream media in America? 

Missiles are being fired back and forth in the Gulf of Aden. Today, Iran is sending destroyers to the area.

UK fighter pilots have been ordered to shoot down hostile Russian fighter jets over Syria. Russian fighters have been ordered to shoot down US planes that get in their way.

Russia has ordered government officials to immediately bring back their children studying abroad, and reports also suggest the order extends to any relatives living outside of Russia.

The US administration has effectively stated they will hack Russia in response to Russian hacking of US government and business operations.

The Russians are repeatedly warning of nuclear war and have held a gigantic civilian sheltering drill within their country.

If you're not paying attention yet--wake-up.

None of us ... nay not even all of us together can change what is happening now. But what you must do for the welfare of your loved ones is to prepare for a world at war, an economic collapse, and civil chaos and lawlessness in every neighborhood.

Stock up today on all the necessities--check your preps and top them off. Do what you need to do.

Prepare and fortify.

WWIII Threat Rapidly Building; Time to Get Ready and Be Steady

If you're not paying attention to what is happening in the Middle East, you'd better cast your gaze that way now. A war of Biblical proportions is fast shaping up that, if it escalates much further, WILL involve the U.S., no matter how cowardly the current administration behaves (and in the end BECAUSE of how spineless our foreign policy of the last 7 years has been).

There's not a darn thing you or I can do about any of it except in how we each respond to this threat personally.

I'm seeing a lot of folks out there breathlessly following every headline, every tweet, every official pronouncement and denial. Some are offering their best militaristic talking-head analyses of what comes next.

Of course most Americans are simply in denial or absolutely ignorant of the cascading situation.

Proper Prepping

This may indeed lead to the long-feared superpower confrontation that will out of necessity go thermonuclear. No proxies lobbing hand grenades at each other ... we're talking ICBMs passing in the night, hackers taking down the grid and all communications, global terror, the plains of Armageddon filling up with blood ... and that's just in the first few minutes of the conflict.

Obviously worst case. But if you are ready for the worst, anything else will be easier.

Are you squared away?

We have no idea how much longer we might have to stock up the larder, to top off supplies. But assuming you are doing that or have done that to your satisfaction, the mindset to survive and to carry forward for the sake of your loved ones is something that no doubt could use some attention. It's pre-game. They're all suited up.

Get your game-face on.

No--it's not a game, but it's about winning. Beating the odds. Getting your team to the other side.

If this all goes bottom up, there will be no help coming when you need it the most. You and yours will be on your own.

Unless of course your faith in God and your relationship with Him through prayer are strong. In which case--you can't be in better shape. History has shown time and again that God alone will sustain folks miraculously.

But none of us are going to want to put God to that test if we have the opportunity and the resources to do our best to help Him help us.

To-date, for many of us, prepping has been about supplies and training and awareness. With the heads-up we are now getting as we see the smoke rising and spreading over the horizon, serious preppers are now steeling themselves for whatever comes next.

If this actually happens, it will be hell on earth. Resolve and personal focus will be key for any who get through it. The time is right now to start pulling that together internally.

If we all manage to escape the threat this time ... nothing lost, but maybe some additional spiritual fiber gained.

Emergency Alerts. Did you know ?

EMERGENCY ALERTS

WEA Screen image of disaster text from the government displaying on a smart phone screen.
Visit the FEMA Library to downloadWEA PSA (:30)
View "WEA PSA (:30)" on Youtube.
You can receive important lifesaving alerts no matter where you are - at home, at school, or at work.
Public safety officials use reliable systems to alert you and your family in the event of natural or man-made disasters. Many communities also offer emergency alert notifications through their own systems. 
  1. Why are Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) important to me?
    Alerts received at the right time can help keep you safe during an emergency. With WEA, warnings can be sent to your mobile device when you may be in harm's way, without need to download an app or subscribe to a service.
  2. What are WEA messages?
    Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) are emergency messages sent by authorized government alerting authorities through your mobile carrier.
  3. What types of alerts will I receive?
    • Extreme weather, and other threatening emergencies in your area
    • AMBER Alerts
    • Presidential Alerts during a national emergency
  4. What does a WEA message look like?
    WEA will look like a text message. The WEA message will show the type and time of the alert, any action you should take, and the agency issuing the alert. The message will be no more than 90 characters.
  5. How will I know the difference between WEA and a regular text message?
    WEA messages include a special tone and vibration, both repeated twice.
  6. What types of WEA messages will the National Weather Service send?
    • Tsunami Warnings
    • Tornado and Flash Flood Warnings
    • Hurricane, Typhoon, Dust Storm and Extreme Wind Warnings
  7. What are AMBER Alerts?
    AMBER Alerts are urgent bulletins issued in the most serious child-abduction cases. The America's Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response (AMBER) Alert Program is a voluntary partnership between law-enforcement agencies, broadcasters, transportation agencies, and the wireless industry.
  8. Who will send WEAs to issue AMBER Alerts?
    The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), in coordination with State and Local public safety officials, sends out AMBER Wireless Emergency Alerts through IPAWS.
  9. What should I do when I receive a WEA message?
    Follow any action advised by the message. Seek more details from local media or authorities.
  10. Will I receive a WEA message if I'm visiting an area where I don't live, or outside the area where my phone is registered?
    Yes, if you have a WEA-capable phone and your wireless carrier participates in the program. (More than 100 carriers, including all of the largest carriers, do.)
  11. What if I travel into a threat area after a WEA message is already sent?
    If you travel into a threat area after an alert is first sent, your WEA-capable device will receive the message when you enter the area.
  12. When will I start receiving WEA messages?
    It depends. WEA capabilities were available beginning in April 2012, but many mobile devices, especially older ones, are not WEA-capable. When you buy a new mobile device, it probably will be able to receive WEA messages.
  13. Is this the same service public safety agencies have asked the public to register for?
    No, but they are complementary. Local agencies may have asked you to sign up to receive telephone calls, text messages, or emails. Those messages often include specific details about a critical event. WEAs are very short messages designed to get your attention in a critical situation. They may not give all the details you receive from other notification services.
  14. Will I be charged for receiving WEA messages?
    No. This service is offered for free by wireless carriers. WEA messages will not count towards texting limits on your wireless plan.
  15. Does WEA know where I am? Is it tracking me?
    No. Just like emergency weather alerts you see on local TV, WEAs are broadcast from area cell towers to mobile devices in the area. Every WEA-capable phone within range receives the message, just like TV that shows the emergency weather alert if it is turned on. But, the TV stations, like WEA, don't know exactly who is tuned in.
  16. Will a WEA message interrupt my phone conversations?
    No, the alert will be delayed until you finish your call.
  17. How often will I receive WEA messages?
    You may get very few WEA messages, or you may receive frequent messages when conditions change during an emergency. The number of messages depends on the number of imminent threats to life or property in your area.
  18. If, during an emergency, I can't make or receive calls or text messages due to network congestion, will I still be able to receive a WEA message?
    Yes, WEA messages are not affected by network congestion.
  19. What if I don't want to receive WEA messages?
    You can opt-out of receiving WEA messages for imminent threats and AMBER alerts, but not for Presidential messages. To opt out, adjust settings on your mobile device.
  20. How will I receive alerts if I don't have a WEA-capable device?
    WEA is only one of the ways you receive emergency alerts. Other sources include NOAA Weather Radio, news broadcasts, the Emergency Alert System on radio and TV programs, outdoor sirens, and other alerting methods offered by local and state public safety agencies.
