What Happened To Me After I Switched Banks

August 30, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

too-big-to-fail-bank

I just wanted to let you know an interesting (coincidental?) thing that happened to me recently as I made a major transfer from one particular bank to deposit into a new (different) bank.

I don’t much believe in coincidences (there’s often a reason) and in this case I have little doubt it was coincidental…

What did you do for your preparedness this week? (2015-08-29)

August 29, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

In the opinion of many, this week’s roller-coaster ride in the stock market is just a prelude to what is coming in the next 4 to 8 weeks, and these people are stepping up their preparedness. They realize the extreme dangers that will surround a market meltdown and credit lockup whereby the lifeblood (credit) of today’s modern world will slow or stop – crippling the infrastructure of supply and distribution of all sorts of goods and services.

Many believe that the resulting follow-on effects will include a Great Reset – currency devaluations (already beginning elsewhere). Many also believe (and see the writing on the wall) of an upcoming major war – quite likely devolving into World War which could turn into an East/West showdown.

The signs of the troubled times ahead are there. And for those who see them, they’re doubling-down on their preparedness going into this Fall season.

With that said, what have you been doing for your preparedness this week?

August 28, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

Lets have some fun today. I know you all have stories about this subject… your encounters with those who are ‘common-sense challenged’ – those who may exhibit a higher than usual number of episodes which involve a clear lack of common sense, judgement, or basic understanding of the world around them.

There are plenty of them out there (these people), and while one wonders the actual percentage of the human species, one might believe that number to be exceptionally high these days… perhaps due to the ‘modern’ cushy world we currently live in whereby just about anyone can survive with ease…

With that said, here’s one example of a story which I copied from one of our reader’s comments from yesterday’s article (How Will People React After The Crash Of The Great Reset?) – which I thought was pretty darn humorous (and telling) —

How Will People React After The Crash Of The Great Reset?

August 27, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

global-reset

For those who are already reasonably prepared, perhaps one of the biggest concerns is the reaction and behavior of the unprepared. When it all comes crashing down, whether it’s a sudden or drawn-out decent into collapse conditions during the Great Reset, the question is how will people react during this time of great turmoil?

Here are a few thoughts, while we invite those of your own…

How To Acquire Food Storage Even If You Are Poor…

August 25, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

food-storage-for-the-poor

Lets face it. There are lots and lots of people who consider themselves ‘broke’, as in ‘no money’. More specifically, they don’t think they have enough money to build up a cupboard or two full of food for emergency storage (or just plain old having some more…).

There are many people who live week to week on little income while struggling to make ends meet. There are bills to pay and there’s little money left over for stockpiling some extra food. There might only be enough food in the house to feed the family for a few days or maybe a week – until the next paycheck comes in.

Well here’s the thing: There likely IS a way to put some food in the pantry…
