Food and water storage now!
Not more than 10 percent of the readers of our readers could live more than a month on their stored food and supplies.
Storing food is something that we have to do before we need it. Think now; if we needed stored food today, it would be too late. If you have taken our advice and own gold and silver and have food and water stockpiled, you can weather a storm. Those who choose to depend on big daddy government "stimulus" will suffer.
Americans are used to plenty of "food." Most of them can't imagine not being able to go to the store to get food of some sort. It truly takes vision and planning for the future, especially now.
You see, right now in this strange economy, there is a shortage of shipping containers. Every empty one is being rounded up and sent to Asia to be filled with all the electronics and furniture and high-margin goods Americans are buying while they’re home. Guess what’s not being shipped? Agricultural products — because the margins are too low. Agricultural shipments are even being canceled and the containers rerouted to ship higher-value goods. American farmers are having trouble getting their products shipped out of the U.S. to be sold or traded. I, for one, am not sure there won’t be a food shortage in just a few months.
We have long urged you to store food. But now to the point! In my opinion, we now face more than a probability of much higher prices, scarcity, and resulting social problems. Can we not imagine that an honest man will steal and even plunder if he and his family is hungry?
Agriculture is one of the very few sectors globally that currently faces supply shortages. There is the distinct possibility that this next decade we will see desperate struggles for food and water. Rising food prices will cause extreme hunger and famine. This will lead to social unrest, revolution, and wars.
Does anyone doubt that the incoming regime-elect in the U.S. will cause extreme hardship because of the further lockdowns they will impose? Note that they do not warn the people to protect themselves. They only talk about trillions of dollars in "stimulus" that ultimately go to corporations and banksters and not people who need to eat.
Still, probably not more than a few can see the negative trends. They still can't visualize disaster.
Food prices have risen just since march due to the lockdowns, and shortages still persist. We hear from our readers in the construction business that they still can't get everything they need to remodel or build a house. They can't even find matching pairs of washer-dryers. Most appliance factories and warehouses in the United States and abroad are operating at 50 percent capacity. Do we think food production and distribution are any less affected? I can assure you dear reader that they are not.
Have you ever really been hungry? I had far rather have food storage, or even overstorage, and not ever need it than not to have it and be hungry. Food storage may not guarantee that you won't be hungry but not storing food will almost certainly guarantee there will be hunger in your future.
So, I always recommend you start with a three-day supply. If you are feeding a family of four for three days, you will need to plan on three breakfast meals, three lunches and three dinners. If you need a store of food so you're prepared to weather any kind of emergency, here is what we feel is the best emergency food you can get anywhere: Just follow this link for a deep discount.
The main idea is to prepare. That way, if the U.S. should take a turn for the worse, you won't find yourself on a diet of meager meals, scraping to get by.
Water storage is even more crucial than food, as a person will die in two or three days without water.
An average person needs about two gallons of water per day — one for drinking and one for washing, cooking, sponge bathing, laundry and washing dishes. If you live in a warm climate you need to have even more on hand.
Bottled water can be purchased from the store, or you can store your own in plastic or glass containers. If you use plastic, stick with used soft drink bottles as they are more dependable. Milk jugs are not good for long-term storage as they break down over time.
To figure how much water you need, multiply two gallons by the number of people in your family and the number of days for which you want to prepare. For large quantities, large plastic storage drums are available from survivalist stores and online.
It's also a good idea to have on hand the materials you need to purify water, which can be done by boiling, use of chemicals (such as bleach or iodine) or purification tablets available from an outdoor supply store.
If you are serious about storing food and water for a survival situation it's a good idea to buy a book or two on the subject. One good one is Emergency Food Storage and Survival Handbook by Peggy Layton. But there are many others available that will help to set you on the right course.
The nature of a crisis implies that it comes on without warning,
so preparedness is the key to survival. That means get ready now for the time when
store shelves are empty and the water tap is dry.

PATRIOTS AGAINST SOCIALISM
Warning bells should be going off in your head right now!
When most people think of preppers, they picture people living in a house somewhere in the country. However, preppers can be anywhere, including small apartments in large urban areas.
The challenges of prepping for a natural or human-made disaster can be challenging for city-dwellers because of a lack of storage space. But the need to be prepared is just as great. When you consider the high number of people living in close proximity to you, the need may even be greater.
For the purpose of this article, we will examine what you need to have on hand in the event you are unable to leave your apartment for an extended period of time. These days, it’s not difficult to imagine situations that might make it unsafe for you to venture outside. It could be anything from a riot in the streets to a natural disaster...

How To Defend Your Apartment From Looters After The SHTF
Right now, the big-government, “socialist utopia” liberals plan for America is playing out in front of us…
In New Mexico, a new series of lockdowns handed down from the Democratic state governor has created what’s being called “modern day bread lines.”
Both healthy and sick, the young and the old alike are waiting up to four hours just to enter supermarkets to get whatever food and essential medicines are available.
Four hour lines… For food and necessary medicine… in America.
These are things you would expect from communist countries or banana republics, not here.
But the times have changed...
In less than a year, the depravity and lust for power of those in leadership positions across the nation has been revealed.
What was unthinkable just eleven months ago is now reality in states, cities and towns across our country.
As the saying goes, "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
So, aside from taking every legal effort to keep our country and freedoms...
One of the primary things you need to do is create an emergency food stash.
I have over a year’s supply of food and much of it is the survival food pouches.
But, here is some food you can get at your local grocery store now to also add to your other survival food storage.
Canned meats, fruits and vegetables:
You don’t have to suffer bland food in an emergency.
When it comes to these canned foods, buy the brands you normally eat, and the fruits and veggies you enjoy.
As long as they’re canned, they’ll keep for a year or two at least.
Same goes for the canned meats...
Canned chicken, beef, and tuna can all last up to five years when you store it in a cool, dry place.
And here's some more items to pick up...
You can pick up a couple 20 pound bags of dried beans at places like Walmart.
Or just grab a 5 pound bag of dried beans every time you go to the store to quickly build your stockpile.
Virtually any beans you like are good to store: red beans, black beans, pinto beans, lentils, etc.
Beans are great because they go a long way.
One cup of dried beans makes 2-3 cups of cooked beans.
And they’re a good source for protein, fiber, iron, and B vitamins.
Rice, Grains and Pasta:
You can buy a 10 pound bag of white rice for around five dollars at the store.
And it can last you up to 10 years when stored correctly.
White rice stores much longer than brown, which only lasts for a few months.
So while not quite as nutritious, opt for white rice.
It provides a good amount of carbohydrates, which can keep your energy up in emergencies.
And when partnered with the canned meats and other foods, can balance out a meal.
Grains like oats, grits, and cornmeal will also store for a long time, and are easy to store and prepare, inexpensive, nutritious and versatile foods.
Perfect for your emergency food cache.
Pastas will keep for around 5 years in the proper conditions, and just takes boiling water to prepare.
Sugar, Salt, Spices, Lard:
Pretty straightforward here...
You’ll want sugar, salt and spices to season your food and make meals with similar ingredients taste wholly different.
With just a few spices, some dried beans, your choice of canned meat, and canned tomatoes, and you’ve got chili.
Or change the seasoning, and replace the tomatoes with potatoes and carrots and you’ve got a hearty stew.
Spices are a nice and easy way to provide variety during a crisis.
Animal lard or vegetable shortening costs around $10 for a 6 pound can.
This type of lard provides both needed calories and cooking oil.
And it keeps longer than regular cooking oil, around 2-3 years (or more), when stored correctly.
So there you have it…
A simple list of solid basics you can pick up at the local grocery store to create your own survival pantry.
They’re inexpensive, easy to prepare in a crisis, and they last a long time when stored properly.
Remember, New Mexico is just another example of what we face if the socialists and big government liberals get their way.
And you must be prepared for this.
So follow these tips to shore up your preparations.
Start with stockpiling a week’s worth of food...
Then a month’s worth.
And slowly build up to a year’s supply if possible.

My fellow RUSH listeners all want to do something to STOP the socialists-I send them here!
The Democrats are planning to push through a crushing list of socialist policies if they get control of the White House, the House of Representatives, and THE SENATE!
To start, they're going to cancel over $1.6 billion in student loans as if there's a Money Fairy that can just make it all disappear without transferring those costs onto the backs of hardworking Americans.
And liberal governors that have destroyed their state economies with lockdowns want to force taxpayers in other states to pay their bills with a multi-trillion-dollar federal bailout.
Under the bogus 'leadership' of our dimwit governor in MI, our economy is failing and thousands were put out of work/business-she's gutting our state!
