Survival Saturday is  a round-up of the week’s news and resources for folks who are interested in being prepared.

This Week in the News

This week on Survival Saturday, the news relates to Russia and Germany. The threat of a war that could include nuclear weapons is getting ever closer, and a global economic collapse is nearing as well. But, oh, my gosh look! Forget about Obama provoking Russia – there’s a creepy clown! Isn’t he scary? Really, this gives a whole new meaning to “bread and circuses.” With something this obvious, you have to think they’re just making fun of the gullibility of Americans.

The world is in a period of flux right now, and unfortunately, all we can do is watch, work even harder to get prepared, and hope something happens to turn this ship around. Stock up on emergency food, water, and other vital supplies before the crowd. Remember last summer when our own government issued 2 warnings to the American people to get prepared? Very few people took it seriously. I strongly urge you to get prepped because we’re headed for a bumpy road.

Are We About to Go to War Against Russia?

In all the years I’ve been expressing my opinion on the internet, this week has been one of the most troubling for news because it’s really starting to look like war with Russia could be imminent.

President Obama has been poking the bear, and the bear is Vladimir Putin, the leader of Russia. Now, it looks like Putin is ready to poke back. Some people reading my articles about the subject this week seem to think that pointing out warning signs is me blaming Russia for the entire mess. That’s not the case at all. It is every bit as much a reflection on our own leader’s inability to get along.

First, Russia reneged on a long-standing agreement with the US to dispose of enough weapons-grade plutonium to make 17,000 nuclear warheads.

Then, Russia conducted a massive drill. And by massive, I mean they had a drill that involved more than 40 million people, lasted 4 days, and involved scenarios for biological, chemical, and nuclear emergencies.

This article outlines 8 alarming signs that World War 3 could be upon us. A couple of months ago, I posted that WW3 seemed to be approaching and it was only a matter of who would get blamed. It seems like now we know.

Governments around the world have been feverishly preparing for an impending disaster, but here in America, our focus is on this mockery of an election and the epidemic of creepy clowns.  Trust me, folks, we have much greater things to worry about than creepy clowns. I’d much rather deal with a creepy clown (hello, Glock) than sit by helplessly and watch our “leaders” destroy the planet with nuclear weapons.

I Know, Let’s Say The Russians Did the Hack and Then Nobody Can Blame Hillary For Losing.

Now, this is what I call a preemptive strike.

On Friday, October 7, Washington officially accused Russia of trying to alter the course of the 2016 Presidential elections by hacking the computers of the Democratic National Committee and other political organizations.

Because, you know, we aren’t already having enough issues with Russia.

As soon as the realization dawned that Clinton could actually lose the election to a guy with hair that sets its own agenda, who has no political experience, and a mouth as big as the Holland tunnel, the excuses started.

The Russians did it. Of course. That’s that then. It must be true if the government says so. *cough*

Has it never occurred to these officials that handing out a few phone numbers  and leaking a few private email addresses is annoying, but unlikely to change the voting preferences of a couple of hundred million people?

And, also, let me express my supreme lack of sympathy for the politicians who have had their privacy invaded by the hack.

Maybe it will give them a feel of what life is like for the rest of us.  What they call a “hack” is a daily occurrence for us. Others accessing  our private information is a daily occurrence, and it’s often carried out by our own government rather than foreign hackers. It would be one thing if it was Nigerian scammers trying to get your bank account number, but daily, we have our own government delving into our emails looking for words on a list, listening to our late night calls to a lover, and watching our every move on CCTV.

Welcome to the real world, ladies and gentlemen. It sucks, doesn’t it?

Are We Witnessing the Economic Collapse of Germany?

The German economy is groaning under the weight of bad decisions and a metric ton of immigrants. This week, citizens were alarmed when they could not access their money in Deutsche Bank accounts. But don’t worry, the bank said it was only tech issues and everything is just fine and there’s a puppy, isn’t he cute?

To recap, Deutsche Bank, the largest bank in Germany, is on the verge of failure. This has already had an effect on the American stock market. and if it does go under, the repercussions will be felt all over the world.

But there’s more. Commerzbank, the nation’s second-largest bank, will be no longer be paying shareholder dividends and is in the process of cutting more than 10,000 jobs. It sounds like a death rattle for Commerzbank too.

Germans were warned a couple of weeks ago to start stockpiling food and water. There has been discussion about the creation of a European Army, something endorsed by EU president Jean-Claude Juncker. Germany even considering re-introducing the draft.

They have their own issues, of course, but they have to also be worried about the radioactive peeing contest between Putin and Obama.

This Week from the Road…

This week, the Great American Unschooling Tour took a detour to Canada, where we visited our family there and stayed with my lovely oldest daughter. The reason for the detour? My youngest girl, my baby, turned 16!

We got back on the road midweek and drove through upstate New York (on a toll road that I paid to drive on which was so bumpy you couldn’t even drink coffee), then Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine.

New England in the fall is certainly something spectacular to see. In fact, we’re both madly in love with the rural North East. I can’t even pick which of the three states I loved the most, although Maine’s proximity to the ocean wins some brownie points. There were so many old houses and historic places to see – this has been the trip of a lifetime so far.

Since we’ve driven from one coast to the other and dipped our toes in the Atlantic Ocean, this week, we’ll be heading south.

If you want to follow along, I’ve been posting photos of the trip on my Instagram account, here. Even without an account, you can check out the photos and captions – you just won’t be able to leave comments.

  • This, ‘fade to black’ thing is harder than I thought it wold be. Maybe next week?

    Here’s an interesting rebuttal to your position about the eminent possibility of WWIII:


    Also, here’s a telling perspective from Susan Ferguson which I came across in the comments section at geoengineeringwatch.org under the blog entry, ‘Hurricane Matthew, The Latest Example Of Global Weather Warfare Desperation’:

    SF: ”The China Mirage, The Hidden History of the American Disaster in Asia” by James Bradley might forever obliterate any Disneyland-fantasy we still hold dear about our leaders. Bradley chronicles the deluded misconceptions regarding China held by the power elite in the west — delusions, ‘mirages’ that led to years of disastrous policies and unnecessary wars because of complete ignorance, arrogance and a blind stupidity that reigned from the time of the East India Company’s Opium Trade (drug running) in China, through Japan’s invasion of China and the Rape of Nanking, right on into Pearl Harbor and World War II, and continuing through the Korean War and the Vietnam tragedy. All because of the ignorance, incompetence, and racial arrogance that created a true believer ‘mirage’ in America regarding China.
    I did not know that the Delano family, as in Franklin Delano Roosevelt, made their fortune by dealing opium in China. Opium funded/built the British Empire and was one of “the critical engines of the era.” In India, the East India Company had control over “one million Indian opium farmers.” Many, as they love to say ‘old money’ east coast families who now consider themselves the ‘blue-bloods’ of America, originally got their fortunes in the opium trade. Warren Delano was one. I did not know that Franklin Delano Roosevelt had no qualms about creating a secret government to avoid a pesky Senate & Congress and carry out his policies covertly. Sound familiar? I did not know that the man who founded TIME magazine, Henry Luce was the source endless distorting propaganda.
    A War over Oil: Again I did not know that the USA had kept Japan supplied with oil for its war on China right up to 1941. Money was needed to recover from the Great Depression caused by the Wall Street crash, caused by… …well, you know. According to Bradley, another ‘mirage’ was eventually created to convince the American public that the Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek was “bravely fighting the Japanese” and that there would be no repercussive blowback suffered by cutting the oil supply to Japan. Pearl Harbor changed that perception. One hundred thousand Americans and over two million Japanese perished in the Pacific WWII.
    Ignorance & Vietnam: The war in Vietnam also emerged from ignorance and delusion. Ho Chi Minh was committed to ending foreign domination of Vietnam, just as the American Revolutionaries had kicked the British out in 1776. But Eisenhower saw Ho Chi Minh “as a tool of international Communism.” Eisenhower instead chose a man to rule who was “allied with the wealthy, who kept the peasants in near servitude.” War is a business.
    The China Mirage, The Hidden History of American Disaster in Asia, by James Bradley; Little, Brown & Company, 2015.

    Here’s the Amazon link to the book she referenced.

    But, most people simply Do Not Care A Whit, or, like you say, ‘…and there’s a puppy, isn’t he cute?’.

  • Hey there…keep it quiet about the great rural northeast…so many think we (the northeast) won’t survive any major upheaval…but little do they know. And we are happy to keep them in the dark!!
    It’s unconscionable what level this nation has sunk to and to be represented by either one of the morons that are running for office is incomprehensible.
    Well, it was bound to happen one day…the fall of the American “Empire” I am just astonished it happened so rapidly…as compared to other country’s and civilizations that have gone their natural course….which is to rise and fall.

  • Also migrants in Germany really aren’t the issue and won’t have anything to do with a potential economic collapse that is NOT on its way there. They are but a drop of water in the ocean. What’s the point of this article!

    Maybe you could have mentioned the fact that Russia closed our French air traffic this week, just because it could. THAT is a form of agression.

    Russia may have the power, but it doesn’t have the money to go to war.
