Preparation for Crisis:Networking Opportunities

Written by Gary North on December 15, 2011

Americans are sensing that business as usual is getting risky. They are looking for ways to reduce their risk in a financial crisis. So, “preparationism” is growing.

This has created local business opportunities. But, more important, the opportunity to create a local network of trusted people is growing.

One site announces:

Shows are popping up all over the place, new books are on the market regularly, and prepper blogs like this one are now a dime a dozen (I remember when this site was … unique … but now look at us … washed up … a mere sliver of our former unique glory … but anyway). The raging apocalyptic excitement taking the nation by storm coupled with this down economy gets my TEOTWAWKI business mind thinking – what ways are there to turn this craze into a profit making venture?

You can write a book. But he says it’s a lot of work. True. I speak from experience. Better to sell a service.

No, my mind gets turning around other business ideas, like … well, like the other day I was emailing with my homeboy at Weaponcraft in Maine. His business had expanded so far that it was no longer just his, he’d brought others in to assist out of necessity.

Firearms training is gaining in popularity, like this story about women increasingly becoming interested in shooting.

This is beginning to change politics.

The surge has been propelled by shifting politics and demographics that have made it easier and more acceptable than at any time in 75 years for Americans to buy and carry pistols. Post-9/11 fears also seem to be a factor, as has been the relentless pro-gun politicking of the National Rifle Association and marketing, particularly to women, by handgun manufacturers. Events like the Dec. 8 fatal shootings on the Virginia Tech University campus reinforce a feeling that the world is an unsafe place, even as violent U.S. crime rates fall.

Events like the VA Tech shooting will continue.

Take this Maine based company, for example – Snap Space Solutions. They turn shipping containers into housing. While not “technically” a prepper based business, it will certainly catch the eye of some preppers, as using shipping containers as SHTF housing is an often discussed topic in survival circles. Read from a recent news article on the business.

This tells me that there is a growing market here. But locally, “preppers” are still isolated. They need more contacts. That is why a site geared to skills in specific aspects of independent living can be good. I don’t mean “head for the hills” sites. These can attract crazies . . . and also government agents. I mean aspects of gardening or firearms safety.

Use your brain. Wrap a prepper-type theme in a conventional package.

Use WordPress.com to get started.

Later, set up your own separate site, using WordPress.org (free software) and a host like Hoistgator. Choose a URL with your town and state’s Post Office ID: CA, GA, AZ, etc. This way, search engines will find your site.

  1. Luke 10:18And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

    In ancient Hebrew the word for lightning is barack, the word for heaven or the

    heights is bama and to connect the words either an “a” or an “o” is used.

    2 Thessalonians 2:3 (King James Version)

    3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there

    come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

    Political Correctness a term first seen in Mao’s Little Red Book, a communist engendered abomination that is instituting censorship little by little.

    “If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”- George Washington

    Carl Marx, once wrote that, the goal of the Communists was to quote,. “enter into men’s minds and cast God down from his throne.”

    Matthew 12:31Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.


    In ancient Babylon their economy was based on usury.

    “If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest. Exodus 22:25

    Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him. Ezekiel 18:13

    Usury is unlawful; expressly prohibited by GOD!

     Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution clearly states that only the Congress can print and coin money! 

    The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was slipped thru congress during the Christmas break with the majority of it’s members absent. 

    The Federal Reserve is self serving and privately owned in violation to the Constitution, charging interest on illegally printed money. Money printed from nothing!

    In America On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest. With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. Five months later A UNITED STATES PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY was MURDERED BY COMMUNIST!

    “If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest. Exodus 22:25

    Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him. Ezekiel 18:13

    Usury is unlawful; expressly prohibited by GOD!



    In ancient Babylon their priest sacrificed babies to their gods baal, and molech.  

    In America the communist under their socialist programs have sacrificed over 50 million American babies to their god satan!

    Leviticus 20:2-5

    2Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel , Whosoever he be of the children of Israel , or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel , that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.

    3And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.

    4And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:

    5Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.


    Luke 22:35-36 Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?” “Nothing,” they answered. 36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.



    Jeremiah 50:16Cut off the sower from Babylon, and him that handleth the SICKLE in the time of harvest: for fear of the oppressing sword they shall turn every one to his people, and they shall flee every one to his own land.

    Jeremiah 50:23How is the HAMMER OF THE WHOLE EARTH CUT ASUNDER AND BROKEN! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!




    Jeremiah 50:14 “ Put yourselves in array against Babylon all around, All you who bend the bow; Shoot at her, spare no arrows, For she has sinned against the LORD.

    All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them. Psalm 118:10


    “The thing that separates the American Christian from every other person on earth is the fact that he would rather die on his feet, than live on his knees!”. George Washington




  2. Keith Mathison says:

    Snap space is a super cool concept for mobile people. Traditional manufactured homes are too fragile to move more than once, in fact you can not get a loan on a manufactured home that has been more than one time. With Snap Space you can literally taken your house with you if you get relocated for any reason. It is truely a mobile home. Maybe in the future traditional manufactured home parks will be filled with these truely mobile units. I think they will need to improve the way they look before they get wide spread appeal.

  3. "The Constitution which at any time exists, 'till changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole People is sacredly obligatory upon all."
    George Washington, 1796

    The above statement is just as true today as it was years ago when the Brits dominated the people before 1776. Americans have tasted over 200 years of freedom since, and we won't be giving it up none to fast. So, Obama…you had better know this going into it. Things are going to get very ugly if you continue down the road you are on…
