I was recently in a ranch and farm supply store of a large franchise chain. I stopped at the entry way from the shock of what I saw, gazing at the empty store shelves. I questioned an employee standing near the entrance as to why, who said the franchise can’t get merchandise. Another customer who stopped next to me said… “It looks like they’re in the middle of a going out of business sale!”
If it sounds like Chicken Little yelling “The Sky is Falling!” …read on…
What do I say to you?
What can I say to you? How do I convince my Fellow Americans to start storing water, food, medicines and clothing and blankets to keep warm with this winter… when… this information is contradictory to the way you think! It creates Cognitive Dissonance in your thought!
cag-ni-tive dis-uh-nuhns/ /ˌkɑːɡ.nə.t̬ɪv ˈdɪs.ən.əns/
Definition of cognitive dissonance: It is a state of conflict that occurs when your beliefs or assumptions are contradicted by new information. The result is that you might limit your flow of information to that which you agree with or seek out information and people who would give you support and agree with the way you currently think.
Origin: Psychologist Leon Festinger first described the theory of cognitive dissonance in 1957.
Simple math will also tell you… too many people to sustain by an overly complex supply system. A supply system that is prone to interruption… so disruption and shortages of Critical Life Supplies and Services, as I term these necessities in the Civil Defense Manual, that have started, are going to get worse. Look carefully the next time you’re in your grocery, building supply or big box store.
Shelves, that were immediately filled when emptied… are sitting empty for an increasing number of products.
That’s because the stores don’t have it in their backrooms… because their suppliers can’t get it… because factory production has fallen or because transportation can’t deliver it to suppliers and stores or deliver the raw materials to factories.
This essay is about Supply Chain System shortages that will get worse. But, if you’re of the mindset that what I write is panic thought… if this conflicts with your thought… you may as well stop reading here. In my opinion, only a stupid person cannot see the precarious situation Americans are in now from the problems that have shown up in the last 20 months and that time will only make worse.
But I know you’re not stupid, because you’re concerned enough to be reading this essay.
Another simple indicator… is that in my 75 years, I can never recall the United States Postal Service in such disarray and as unreliable as it has gotten. Change by disruption is here as part of the ‘new normal.’
Buy what you need, that you can afford to buy, NOW!
We are in a Catastrophic Event as I write this. It just hasn’t come to full fruition and hasn’t directly or collaterally affected Critical Life Supplies and Services… as I define that in the Civil Defense Manual. Those primarily being food, water and life sustaining medicines and medical aid.
Everything you need and consume will become much harder, if not impossible, to obtain later. Those items will cost much more because of the coming shortages caused by ‘bottlenecks’ in the supply chain, reduced manufacturing/processing output and other issues. Shortages will be magnified, as they trigger basic supply and demand principles, multiplied by panic buying and worsened by the massive inflation that is already here and increasing quickly.
See the list of ‘must haves’ at the end of this essay.
Availability of just about everything will probably be on and off like a light switch as the ‘new normal.’ Investing in what you need and want now, that you can afford to buy, beats what you get from most investments on your money. These Supply Chain ‘bottlenecks’ and resultant shortages will probably never go away until the country and world are taken back from the Globalist elites. Economic and supply chaos will go on forever until regime change everywhere.
If that regime becomes Socialist/Communist/Marxist in America, shortages will become the way of life for the most abundant country on the face of this Earth. Ask my wife… she saw her homeland of Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), the ‘breadbasket of Africa,’ destroyed by the Communists. Massive starvation and hunger… people machine-gunned for protesting starvation, in a country that formerly fed ALL of Africa. Didn’t hear about that on the Main Stream News, did you?
What will happen… and why it will happen…
Globalist elites will use the shortage crisis, along with the chaos it will cause, to install Socialism/Communism/Marxism through government enforcement.
Government regulations, that could be temporarily changed, could solve this ‘bottleneck’ in two weeks. But they won’t change their rules… they’re introducing you to the world of shortages. There are indications and talk of this everywhere… except from the Main Stream News Media and the present Administration.
When it gets to food, you’ll quickly get ‘woke’ to their tactics. Because, food is a weapon and when you’re starving, you won’t care who is feeding you and your family and you’ll go to bat for the devil himself to keep eating. Again, food becomes a weapon. Read my essay “Store Food NOW! on the Civil Defense Manual website at https://civildefensemanual.com/store-food-now/ to understand how this weapon is used.
The Globalist elites and their American Communists, Marxist, Leftists and Socialist stooges, with the subtle background assistance of the Chinese Communist government and the fanfare of the Main Stream News Media, will be persuading people to think that… “Capitalism can’t provide for you, but we can!” …as their way to get total control of America. How they’ll obtain supplies will be barbaric and they’ll supply only their own believers and those who support them.
Current bottlenecks and shortages have been created by Globalist elites and their supporters and will worsen… just like the 100-plus ship ‘bottleneck’ sitting at anchor full of containers off the Long Beach California docks… and now the 170 ship pile up at Los Angeles Harbor. This is all fake… created by regulations that the Leftists in control of these areas refuse to even temporarily change to get the situation back to normal.
Widespread shortages of food maybe within the next year… but there will be shortages, intermittent supply and drastic price increases of about everything as you become conditioned to this being the normal supply and demand in the most abundant country in the world. Thus, food becomes a weapon.
Thomas Jefferson, who lived in Paris, France for years, upon hearing of the French famine of 1788, was astounded that the people of the most abundant country in Europe were starving. One year later they would revolt and create the madness of the “Reign of Terror,” killing hundreds of thousands of their own by fanatical decree of the Jacobins. The Jacobins were the original Collectivists (Communists) who, with help from outside wealthy financiers, created the famine in France by manipulation of the French and European grain commodities market.
From the Civil Defense Manual…
As Charles Dickens began the very first paragraph of his classic novel “A Tale of Two Cities,” “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness…” I find eerie similarities, along with present day contradictions, to the time period that America exists in now.
We live in the Golden Age of abundance, wisdom and Individual Rights… unlike those people living during the time of that novel… with an undercurrent of rage and foolishness tugging at the steadfast frailty of the Constitutional Wisdom that grants these rights… and if those rights should fail, the abundance, wisdom and Golden Age of ours will end in a blink.
The Great Reset
If you don’t know what Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum (WEF) mean by “The Great Reset” …look it up. What’s hindering their schedule is Americans are armed and can resist. Disarmament of Americans will not happen or fit into the time table for The Great Reset schedule of completion by 2032, regardless of their attempts, in my opinion. Americans are armed to the teeth… and WILL resist.
Part of The Great Reset is that China will replace the United States as the new world power. Just as the United States replaced Great Britain as the new world power starting in 1947. When the United States is no longer the most powerful country in the world, the dollar will lose its crucial protected importance. Expect your life to spiral into disaster when the U.S. Dollar is no longer the World’s Reserve Currency and the financial mismanagement of our government is no longer tolerated by the world, because they won’t be using the U.S. Dollar to trade with. Disaster will occur here.
The people behind this Great Reset are intent on replacing our Democratic Society with an Authoritarian System where they don’t even bother to try to convince you that anything they believe is right or logical… they just make you do it whether you like it or not… for their financial and control benefit.
They intend to install a world ruling class… like Kings and Queens and dictators that just won’t go away… because with the surveillance technology they have… overseen by government enforcement… there will be no further revolutions for people’s rights.
Trump will not save you, nor will any conservative save you from what is coming. Like James Wesley Rawles, Author of the classic novel “Patriots” and the Survivalblog.com website says… “YOYO” (You’re On Your Own!)
Read on about what you can do.
The United States will be irreparably damaged by four years of Biden running the country. I am convinced that Obama and the people behind him are the real power of the Biden Presidency… it’s really Obama’s third term. Regardless of whether real conservative Republicans get control of all branches of the government, they will fail in rolling back what the Globalist elites and their Democratic stooges have done.
Just as Trump was stymied by constant ‘impeachment’ proceedings when he had total control of all law making and could have passed any law… they will divide and divert attentions to what derails effective government through the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
You might feel good about what real Republicans try in good faith to do, but they will not control the bureaucracy… the fourth and mightiest branch of government… the administrators. This will be the legacy of and the ultimate control of law and policy in America by the end of the Biden Administration in 2024. Forget the election fraud, audits and proof.
Trump will not be reinstated as President and the Biden Administration will increase and retain iron fisted control of the Bureaucracy and thus the government, placing the people they put to control these agencies who will be there when they’re gone. Look at people like Fauci, who do whatever they want without oversight. Can’t get rid of them.
However, at some point… when the takeover of the United States falls behind schedule or they determine it will not happen as easily as they planned… one of the following, or most likely… a combination of these events will occur…
- Shortages of Critical Life Supplies and Services that I describe in the Civil Defense Manual will become more frequent and more pronounced, and or,
- A real pandemic will ensue that IS DEADLY… like weaponized lab modified hybrid small pox (that has a 99.9% fatality rate versus regular Mother Nature’s small pox with a 30 to 64% fatality rate), and or,
- Massive deaths will begin to happen from the Genetic Modification Clotting Serums (Covid vaccines) that are time delayed and harmful, and or,
- An ElectroMagnetic Pulse event will encompass the United States, and or,
- Armed conflict will begin between opposing factions in various parts of the country. Expect random car bombs, sabotage of the electrical and communications grids, poisoning of city water supplies, etc., and or,
- Total economic destruction, through runaway inflation worse than any war, will envelope the United States, and or,
- World War III of limited nuclear strikes and conventional ground and sea battles will occur, and or,
- Over taxation will keep people from providing food and shelter for themselves with government confiscating people’s money regardless if they’ll starve or not, and…
- Issues will occur that neither my mind or yours can conceive of or imagine.
Again, am I wearing my tin foil hat? Well, it seems I have good company. Deagle.com (or Deagel), is a rival of two-century old Janes Military… and if you don’t know who Janes is… you need to read outside the box more often. Deagle.com, like Janes, is connected to anyone and everyone in intelligence, defense and governmental power circles of all countries.
Deagle.com shocked all that read their 2021 report. If you question the above… research the 2025 ‘Deagel.com’ Forecast: War, Population Reduction, & The Collapse Of The West… forecasting a 70% reduction of the United States and other countries Populations by 2025. Deagle.com has never answered why or what they based this on.
“The Sky is Falling”
You may think of this essay like the story of “Chicken Little and the Sky is Falling” by Englishman Robert Greene Chandler. For those of you who weren’t paying attention in kindergarten (I had to refresh my memory), Chicken Little, aka ‘Chicken Licken’ aka ‘Henny Penny,’ caused unjustified concern in people by warning all that “The sky is falling!” after an acorn fell from a tree hitting the unfortunate little hen on the head. Obviously, the sky was not falling and the warning was unjustified.
Well… an acorn didn’t fall and hit me on the head and the subject of this newsletter is certainly justified, even though you’ve read and heard the preaching many times about water and food storage over the decades. To you… we’re no different than Chicken Little warning that the sky is falling.
“Yeah, yeah… I’ve heard it so many times before and the grocery stores and restaurants haven’t run out of food… and water still runs from my kitchen faucet!” …you say.
You are all aware of the ‘toilet paper shortage,’ but the Mainstream News Media has not been informing people of the Supply Chain disruptions of other items. Since many people don’t go to ‘Alternative News Media’ sources, you don’t know what’s happening. The worst part of this is that shortages of some of these items… will cause shortages of other items. Like transportation vehicle tire shortages that are predicted by tire suppliers this next year… which means trucks can’t deliver and employees can’t get to work to handle the manufacturing and distribution.
Joe Dolio… Author of Tactical Wisdom asks his readers… What does the Great Book of Tactical Wisdom (The Bible) say?
“The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty.”
– Proverbs 22:3
(Books you need to read… https://www.amazon.com/Tactical-Wisdom-2-Book-Series)
To most people, the world is turning upside down. They are depressed and disturbed over the mood of the country.
For example: the lunacy of white professors calling for the death of their own race, white people… Huge settlements proposed to illegal immigrants for their families being split up during their detentions for their felony attempt to enter and stay in the United States… mind boggling.
I don’t need to go on.
But the reason you think the country is going crazy is you’re not adjusting your thought. You’re not analyzing the true reasons for this craziness. You’re not doing the following…
What you can do.
To understand what is happening in America and how what I write about here could happen, you need to do what Author Matthew Bracken and War Correspondent Michael Yon suggest… adjust your PARADIGM to understand what’s coming… then all the pieces start to fall into place.
par·a·digm / ˈper-ə-ˌdīm
Definition of paradigm: What to expect as normal and logical. Ideas, values, concepts, practices and assumptions about how something should be done, made, or thought about. A way of viewing reality for the community that shares them. Parameters that serve as a pattern or model of behavior or thought.
Origin: Late 15 century., “an example, a model,” from Late Latin paradigma “pattern, example.”
Michael Yon cites former Navy SEAL Officer and Author Matt Bracken pictured below. Matt’s books, written 15 years ago, predicted most of what’s happening now. Read his books… they’ll give you a good idea of what life in the United States is going to be like.
(Books you need to read… https://www.EnemiesForeignAndDomestic.com)
(Matt wrote two Chapters of the Civil Defense Manual titled… “Night Fighting” and the “CW2 Cube”).
Author, war correspondent, former Green Beret Michael Yon states how Matt has been way ahead of the game in learning from surprises going on two decades, from what Yon describes as “The Beast.”
Like Yon says… “Matt Bracken adjusted his way of thinking and reacting to news that boggles most people’s minds. Learn not to be surprised by detecting the actual logic in what happened that caused you to be surprised. A current application is: why is the US government destroying the US? It’s surprising until you adjust your paradigm.” (Yon means… They are like an enemy in power in the White House… their sole intention is to destroy the US.)
Yon goes on… “Keep adjusting your world view until you no longer are surprised like, “This has nothing to do with health. The Beast is using information warfare to destroy our military. And more. Defund the Police. Is a hostile takeover. Opening the borders is a hostile takeover. Breaking the economy is a hostile takeover. The Beast is setting conditions for authentic genocide.”
“If you try my current paradigm for just a week, you be unsurprised at ships off the coast unable to unload, forced jabs with untested chemicals into children’s arms. Or, maybe the chemicals actually were heavily tested, say, on Uighurs. Don’t laugh. Don’t scoff. This readily fits a paradigm that is not another wild conspiracy.”
“We must adjust our collective paradigm until we are no longer surprised, and can predict what The Beast will do next. Because either we beat The Beast, or it will kill us.”
“I have said this many times… and I will say this again — 2021 is just a warm up. 2022 will be far more intense.”
The bull shytte of the Main Stream Media stooges
Those who would be called ‘paranoid’ are more realistic and accurate than the mouthpieces of the Globalist elites. Most military, combat veterans and people who have suffered traumatic experiences and select other individuals develop a “Hyper Vigilance” that causes them to look at life differently. They know what reality is and what can happen so, they’ve lost their illusions.
Start analyzing news like “NYPD Police and Fire Fighters quitting because they won’t take the experimental vaccine!” by changing your paradigm to think this way…
“That’s logical… the leftists are out to destroy the country.”
Despite the fact that it is not actually a vaccine, but a substance that genetically alters your immune system… the first time in history this has been done… Reduced police or firefighter personnel is something that will weaken or destroy your community. That becomes logical to you when you’ve changed your paradigm.
When will problems come?
Cold weather is coming to most of the country. Cold weather has always had an adverse effect on supply and delivery. Delivery gets worse during Winter snows and freezing temperatures. Mobility is more difficult and supply delivery and supply chain disruption that is ongoing will worsen during cold weather. So, prepare for not ‘if’ …but ‘when.’
When? …will be the months of December of this year and January, February and March of the next year. There is another factor involved which may extend that time of being without Critical Life Supplies and Services… the fact that trying to catch up with demand frenzy will take longer as a result of abnormally high demand and low supply capacity during these months.
Also, again, disruption of one item such as fuel will cause chain reaction disruption and collateral outages such as electric power and if trucks don’t have tires or fuel… no resupply will be possible.
The “On Demand” High Activity Instantaneous Feedback Supply Chain System
In an interview on The David Knight Show, I described a phenomenon of the Supply Chain overlooked by most that will further drastically affect Americans and the Industrialized World when shortages begin to appear. That is the almost nonexistence of warehouse inventory, because of what I term the High Activity Instantaneous Feedback Supply Chain System.
This is a collateral effect of our computerized technology that is now embedded in our Supply Chain System. The fact that very little inventory needs to be kept in the Supply Chain System saves companies BILLIONS of dollars a year. Money is not sitting in inventory reserves because all items are made virtually overnight by manufacturing and processing companies… on demand.
The below diagram of the past Supply Chain System…
In the past, the large red letters represent the ‘bulge’ of reserve inventory that existed before computerization of the Supply Chain System. The blue arrow represents factory production put into the Supply Chain. The LARGE red letters represent warehouse inventory reserve and transportation supply movement to the Consumer. The green arrow represents the availability of supply to Consumers.
If extreme demand occurred… there was a huge reserve of goods in the warehouse inventory portion of the Supply Chain. This enabled supply to continue even if production could not keep up with demand temporarily… until production caught up or demand subsided.
The diagram of the present Supply Chain System…
In the present system, there is no warehouse and in fact, not much of a reserve in not only the Supply Chain System, but also the raw materials of all manufacturing and processing factories. The blue arrow represents factory production put into the Supply Chain. The red letters represent transportation of supply from Factory/Processor directly to the Consumer store. The green arrow represents the availability of supply to Consumers.
An example of the High Activity Instantaneous Feedback Supply Chain System is that your local grocery store sells 400 loaves of white Artist Crafted Brand bread from opening to closing in one normal day. Let’s say reports of sales of this brand of bread as well as all other items sold that day are gathered from the computerized cash register/inventory control system at 10 PM. This brand of bread, along with the report of all other items sold is sent electronically to regional store management.
Regional store management reviews, and in this case, anticipating normal sales the next day, orders another 400 loaves of Artist Crafted Brand bread from the bread supplier. By 1 AM, that supplier, be it a wholesaler or bakery, has created an order for another 400 loaves of Artist Crafted Brand bread that are baked, sliced, packaged and loaded on trucks by 5 AM on their way to restock the bread shelves in the very store that sold 400 loaves of Artist Crafted Brand bread the day before. The same goes for all other items that need restocking in that store.
The same happens with the bakery… they keep little or no inventory of items needed for making the bread. By 6 AM they are ordering flour, yeast, plastic bread bags and anything else needed to manufacture more bread the following morning starting at 1 AM. The same happens with each and every supplier of materials to the bakery… orders are made electronically and they order their materials on demand… Instantaneously.
If transportation of these items breaks down on any level… if the electronic system of computerized orders is disrupted… if employees don’t show up at work (paid to stay home by government handouts) or can’t get to work… the manufacturing and or supply stops. Period. And there is no reserve!
The system is just as prone to problems when considering the transport of manufactured goods as imports from overseas, when you take into consideration that the ‘reserve’ of goods is sitting on ships anchored off the coast unable to unload. People won’t go hungry or die because their Chinese manufactured shoes aren’t available. Some Americans will, however, die from disruption of imported goods… being that 95% of life sustaining medicines are manufactured overseas… primarily in China.
What you need to do and what you need to store
A positive fact is that most food production is in the United States. Food can be obtained locally by those in the rural areas. It won’t be what we eat now or packaged for convenience, but it will keep people alive during shortages. People in cities and metro areas won’t be as lucky and the disruption of transportation within the United States will create starvation in the major metro areas, in my opinion.
The Federal Government will go into rural areas to forcibly seize food stocks under the Defense Procurement Act (DPA). I have advised government people in my area of this, but no one seems interested in a situation that has yet to occur. The same with most Preparedness by government… talk, but little action. They’re handicapped people… most have only one hand… the other is constantly holding a coffee cup.
The Federal attempt to seize food under DPA will be met with extreme violence from those in the rural areas, in my opinion.
Water is taken for granted… like breathing air. But those who intend to America harm are actively probing our computer networks for ways to destroy and disrupt the functioning of our water systems. I picked this up on the internet… and my apologies to the Author… who I backtrack researched but was unable to find.
A report from Cyberscoop stated that “A cybersecurity advisory published by the FBI, the Cybersecurity Infrastructure and Security Agency, the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Security Agency highlighted incidents in five states between March of 2019 and August 2021, where systems were targeted by either ransomware attacks or other hacks … Other incidents occurred in California, Maine, Nevada and New Jersey.”
Look into these…
- Most importantly, start talking with your neighbors and cooperating to organize to protect and defend your neighborhood as outlined in the Civil Defense Manual titled the “CDM Neighborhood Protection PlanTM.” If you value your life and your Family… start buying and reading every instructional book you can get your hands on about survival and Preparedness. Read the novels too… huge amounts of information in those also. Some of the imagination is already done for you in those.
- Stock up on water. Lots and lots of cases of water. ‘Blue Barrels’ and large garage HDPE storage tanks if you can afford them. Water treatment for storage and how much you’ll need is explained in detail in the Civil Defense Manual
- Stock up on dry and canned food.
- Stock up on life essential medicines. Get your doctor to prescribe you for a 6 months’ supply. I’ve read that All Day Chemist (in India) is trustworthy and handles most prescriptions. Understand that 95% of our medicines are now foreign made… mostly in China… so I don’t know how much quality difference they’d be from India.
- Stock up on meat and have a means to immediately cook it if electricity goes off.
- Stock up on propane bottles for your grill and or buy an outdoors metal ‘fire pit’ that you can cook on and stock up on wood. Have metal pots and pans without plastic handles for use over a fire.
- Have plenty of blankets, cold weather clothing, waterproof winter overshoes, and one warm sleeping bag for each family member.
- Have your essential electronics in a Faraday Cage to protect against ElectroMagnetic Pulse events. I show you how to build one for very little money in the Civil Defense Manual.
- If you don’t have a firearm, get one… you should have one per person. Preferably a shotgun and lots of shotgun shells and slugs if you’re new to firearms. Read the Chapter in the Civil Defense Manual titled “Firearm basics, safety, surviving a gun battle” and practice your marksmanship and tactical movement with firearms.
The above being said, I’ve seen Preparedness people put way too much emphasis on firearms and ammunition. You can’t eat them, they won’t hydrate you, medicate your body and they won’t keep you warm… unless you have full auto weapons (joke). But you will need and will have to know how to use them.
Take a class with NC Scout, aka BrushBeater or J.C. Dodge on firearms use and tactics or go to one of the other trainers I recommend in the Civil Defense Manual. If you think you’re going to take other’s food and water with your jacked-up weapons… so you don’t need to store food and water… you’ll be one of the first rotting carcasses hanging by your neck from a lamp pole.
- Start gardening. Start hunting and fishing. Get to know your area farmers, chicken ranchers and start canning the food from your garden and hunting excess.
- Get a book written specifically for wild edibles in your area and learn to find and process these for food. They will keep you and yours alive!
- Get a prescription filled for anti-viral such as Tembexa (brincidofovir), TPOXX (tecovirimat) and look into the Sarracenia Purpurea plant extract as a defense against Small Pox. I’m not a doctor, but I’ve read incredible reports on this. Research it and use at your own risk.
- My opinion is not to get injected with Genetic Immune System Modification Serums (Covid ‘vaccine’) or do not get any further ‘booster’ shots.
- Keep cash small bill denominations along with some silver, gold and other items for barter. Read SELCO’s story “Nobody wins… we just survived… with a lot of bad dreams” in the Civil Defense Manual to get an idea of what barter items are and what really happens when breakdown of society occurs. Enroll in courses at his survival school… https://shtfschool.com/selco-one-year-in-hell-online-course/ as he’s a Master at Toe to Toe survival and what we talk about he’s lived through.
Well the Sky IS NOT Falling… but the figurative roof IS about to fall on unprepared American’s heads…
That attitude is why we’ll defeat “The Beast.”
Above all, know that the one little issue that you refuse to bend over and be abused for, may be the one that saves this country. Pick your fights carefully… but when you do… put your life into it… because your life depends on it.
In the next Civil Defense Manual Blog, learn about fuels and how to properly store gasoline, diesel and other fuels and to stabilize them to keep them useable.
