There’s not much time left people…
That’s not my opinion, that’s the opinion of the NY Times, reporting on secret executive plans that just got leaked.
National security emergencies, power grid failure, shutdown of the internet and nuclear attack — all of those are being planned for and even EXPECTED to occur in the future.
Take a look:
Newly disclosed documents reveal secret executive plans for apocalyptic scenarios when the president may activate wartime powers for national security emergencies, including shutting down the internet. None have been shown to Congress.https://t.co/M8Y80GTHiH

Here’s more from MSN:
Newly disclosed documents have shed a crack of light on secret executive branch plans for apocalyptic scenarios — like the aftermath of a nuclear attack — when the president may activate wartime powers for national security emergencies.
Until now, public knowledge of what the government put into those classified directives, which invoke emergency and wartime powers granted by Congress or otherwise claimed by presidents, has been limited to declassified descriptions of those developed in the early Cold War. In that era, they included steps like imposing martial law, rounding up people deemed dangerous and censoring news from abroad.
It has not been clear what is in the modern directives — known as presidential emergency action documents — because under administrations of both parties, none have been made public or shown to Congress. But the newly disclosed documents, which relate to the George W. Bush administration’s efforts to revise the draft orders after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, offer clues.
Several of the files, provided to The New York Times by the Brennan Center for Justice, show that the Bush-era effort partly focused on a law that permits the president to take over or shut down communications networks in wartime. That suggests the government may have developed or revised such an order in light of the explosive growth in the 1990s of the consumer internet.
Underscoring how little lawmakers and the public can infer, another file, from the summer of 2008, mentioned that Justice Department lawyers were revising an unidentified draft order in light of a recent Supreme Court opinion. The memo does not specify the ruling, but the court had just issued landmark decisions on topics that could relate to government actions in an emergency — one about gun rights in the United States and another about the rights of Guantánamo detainees to court hearings.
“The bottom line is that these documents leave no doubt that the post-9/11 emergency actions documents have direct and significant implications for Americans’ civil liberties,” said Elizabeth Goitein of the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University. “And yet, there is no oversight by Congress. And that’s unacceptable.”
Even though it is unclear how the directives have evolved since the later stages of the Cold War, Ms. Goitein said they have likely expanded to include other scenarios beyond a devastating nuclear attack. The documents show that later versions extended from one category to seven, although their topics remain secret, and fall within the jurisdiction of agencies with different areas of focus.
The newly disclosed documents show that there were 48 of the directives when the Bush administration took office; by 2008, that number had grown to 56. Vice President Dick Cheney’s office was involved in reviewing and “clearing” the orders. The documents do not indicate any consultation with Congress.
Several Bush administration officials whose names were mentioned in the documents, speaking on background to discuss matters that remain classified, portrayed the effort as bureaucratic “good housekeeping.” It seemed prudent as the government reoriented to focus on national security after the Sept. 11 attacks, they said.
The Brennan Center for Justice, which has gathered materials about the presidential emergency action documents, obtained the files under the Freedom of Information Act from the Bush presidential library. The disclosures constituted about 500 pages, while about 6,000 more pages were withheld as classified.
The disclosures come after the House passed a bill in December that would impose significant curbs on executive power after the Trump years, including a provision that would require disclosure of the emergency action documents to congressional overseers.
The bill, called the Protecting Our Democracy Act, is not expected to pass the Senate, where Republicans can block it with a filibuster. But advocates of imposing some new limits on presidential emergency powers, with some bipartisan support, are discussing trying later this year to attach a portion to an annual defense authorization act that is considered “must pass” legislation.
It is not yet clear whether the provision about emergency action documents would be included in any such step. But Senator Edward J. Markey, Democrat of Massachusetts, who drafted the provision as stand-alone legislation in 2020, said Congress has an opportunity to bring some accountability to the emergency planning.
“It’s our duty as lawmakers to demand that the executive branch turn over documents so Congress, as representatives of the American people, can evaluate the constitutionality of any future president’s attempt to exploit an emergency to assume extraordinary powers,” he said in a statement provided to The Times.
Mr. Markey proposed his bill after President Donald J. Trump claimed he wielded “total” authority in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic and declared a national emergency.
Christopher Greene with AMTV did a great short video on this and I’d like you to watch it.
This guy is a real character, but he knows what he’s talking about.
One basic way to prepare is to make sure you have enough emergency food supply…
It’s simple, but it could save your life!
Or the life of your family…
An Oklahoma farmer predicted food prices will go up 30% by summer over fertilizer and fuel. Russia is the largest producer of fertilizer and Biden is destroying our energy sector after spending wildly for a year.
So…what can be done?
Get ahead of it.
Listen to Fox Business’ Stu Varney.
He is tying it to “stagflation,” which would cause food prices to go even higher.
Here’s the transcript:
“Stagflation is not a happy subject. There are times when the economy gets into an intractable mess — slow growth or no growth with rising prices. That’s stagflation.
We haven’t felt it in a generation, but it looks like it is headed our way again. You are gonna hear a lot about this.
For the past year, inflation has gradually picked up steam. Now it is running hot at a 10% clip — and I think it gets worse.
Food price inflation will soon accelerate. Couple that with gas prices and electricity bills and everything else, and you have got an inflation problem everybody can see and feel.
Now, it’s the job of the Federal Reserve to fix that. They do this by raising interest rates. And that’s what they’re doing now.
The economy will slow. That’s the “stag” part of stagflation. Stagnant economy, rising prices. Stagflation.
Now, think of the implications of this…
The standard of living — especially for low-income people — goes down. Just about everybody loses ground.
Now, we saw stagflation in the 70s and very early 80s — 10% inflation, slowing economy, rate hikes then recession.
An angry electorate fired President Carter.
This time around, we are already feeling stagflation in our wallets.
I think the politicians will feel it at the ballot box – and soon.”
Unfortunately, we may not have enough time to vote out the politicians.
If higher food prices hit this summer, like farmers are predicting, it will be too late.
Some people are preparing for food price increases by stocking up on long-lasting food.
According to one report, Costco has sold out of some of its emergency foods:
Looks like Costco has sold out almost all their emergency food, especially the Mountain house branded items. Everything online goes to an error page. Even the $2200-$6000 pallets are sold out. Cold War 2.0 panic is here. pic.twitter.com/9PK6gH8k0s
