We’ve been covering the war in Ukraine. The Organic Prepper told you it was coming before it started. Now, it is here, and all signs seem to indicate that this thing is only going to expand aggressively.
It was widely touted as fake news when preppers began to talk about the serious threat of food shortages after 2020. The same has been said for those who discussed the very real threat of hyperinflation after Nixon took the United States off of the gold standard. In both circumstances, it seems as if we’ve finally reached the culmination of all the warnings.
Chaos is here.
And now, adding fuel to the fire, is a recent tweet by the Selective Service. You can see it below.
In the event of a draft, our agency would partner with @fema to provide opportunities to conscientious objectors to ensure our nation keeps moving forward. Learn more about Alternative Service at https://t.co/v2MBOkduVe pic.twitter.com/tjDJlCdoKn

The tweet says, “In the event of a draft, our agency would partner with @fema to provide opportunities to conscientious objectors to ensure our nation keeps moving forward. Learn more about Alternative Service at sss.gov/conscientious-…”
Does this not seem to be suspicious timing to anybody else? Here we are getting dragged into a war that we provoked and that Americans have zero interest in. There will always be fights, but that doesn’t mean we need to get involved every single time. This is not a fight that is our concern. Aside from the very real threat of death on American soil due to nuclear attack, EMP, cyberattacks (or perhaps, attacks on our food supply system?), we now have the very real threat of our sons and friends being sent off to die on a battleground in Europe.
And for what?
We were warned against this.
“Europe has a set of primary interests which to us have none or a very remote relation. Hence, she must be engaged in frequent controversies, the causes of which are essentially foreign to our concerns. Hence, therefore, it must be unwise in us to implicate ourselves by artificial ties in the ordinary vicissitudes of her politics, or the ordinary combinations and collisions of her friendships or enmities.” – George Washington’s Farewell Address
This is a fight that’s not our own. Have you ever attempted to break up a bar fight? You only end up getting hurt as well.

Is it comforting to know that if your sons aren’t shipped overseas to die, they can work for FEMA instead?
Keep in mind that it appears that FEMA does have a needle requirement.
You can die from a bullet, or you can die from a needle. The choice is yours. How thoughtful. And in defense of our country? In defense of American interests? In defense of their loved ones and friends? No, but instead, in defense of corruption.
We are now literally talking about you getting the opportunity to hang a gold star on your window as you watch your family line end. The opportunity to experience the pain of crying with your wife every night for months on end, only falling asleep due to exhaustion.
It doesn’t matter the intense love you feel for your sons that you had the moment you first met them. It doesn’t matter the number of times you went out fishing together, the sailing trips, the wisdom you shared for their future – now you must ask: are they going to get a future?
We are now openly discussing your sons being taken by decrepit, old men who are more than happy to send your sons to die for their wallets and positions of power.
Or perhaps you are young enough that you will be sent to the front lines. Who is it that will raise your children in your stead?
These are your children we are talking about.
You need to start writing your local politicians. You need to start showing up at your city council meetings (and be acquainted with how they will attempt to seed the audience with their shills). You need to start calling, speaking up.
There is an open discussion of them being taken from you.
How long do you think that America can continue to provide increasing levels of “assistance” to Ukraine before Russia has had enough? How many arms shipments, how many planes, how much money, how many sanctions until we are targeted with conventional force? When that day happens, and the first shipment of soldiers who can’t even properly throw grenades far enough to not kill themselves is sent overseas and fails, they will come for your sons.
All signs indicate this war’s expansion.
When that happens, things will get very ugly very fast. And a draft could easily be a part of that ugliness. It already looks like we’re getting hints about this to prepare the American public mind for what is to follow.
Why would the Selective Service randomly tweet about a draft now? Wouldn’t anybody working in the PR department there understand that to do so would only cause widespread speculation and anger? Tell us your thoughts below.
