First Steps for Surviving What’s Coming Our Way
Well, that didn't take long. The Harris/Trotsky administration’s opening salvo of executive orders stopping the Keystone Pipeline, allowing Chinese access to the US power grid, destroying women’s sports, and declaring diabetic Americans as collateral damage is only a precursor to the anti-terrorism and gun control laws targeting some seventy-four million voters.
So, what are you and your family’s first steps as this barbed wire curtain swiftly envelops our formerly constitutional Republic? (We do not have a constitutional Republic while there are still thousands military troops occupying our nation’s capital. We are now enduring a Kabuki government as we are being force-fed a well-crafted MSM fantasy of a lawfully and joyously elected national presidency.)
Progressive Marxist–Leninists regimes all have a few common themes as they consolidate power. These include the criminalization of free speech, free assembly, elimination of a free press and religious freedoms, and a sustained and brutal attack on the civilian ownership of firearms. For Americans these are more than a coordinated attack of our 1st and 2nd Amendments rights, this is a deliberate design to eradicate these rights in perpetuity. Swell, huh?
Other common themes of despotic regimes include stringent governmental rationing of health care, energy, education, food and transportation, now presented in the guise of “saving the planet.” Tyranny also needs bogeymen to blame, lots and lots of bogeymen; hoarders, saboteurs, racists, undesirables, expendables, gun owners, libertarians, conservatives, family values Trump supporters, and GOP voters… the list is mind- numbingly endless. And every despotic regime gleefully blames Jews for their failures. When the stock market tumbles, and consumer shortages emerge, all Jews will again be blamed because, you know, it’s that frog and scorpion… you know, the thing.
So here are some common-sense rules for living in a repressive Marxist regime.
Print these rules out, make a bunch of copies for your family and friends, and read it when your stressed, frightened, upset and angry.
Rule #1. Observe, but don’t absorb the madness.
Rule #2. Prepare for the inevitable shortages of a progressive Marxist economy.
Rule #3. Don’t believe anything the MSM media tells you. They are not your friend. Investigate alternative sources of information. Stay off social media.
Rule #4. Prepare your family's digital ark for safekeeping the past.
Rule #5. Identify one other person you can trust with your life besides a family member. Discuss your plans, fears and hope for the future with this person. There may come a time when you will need a true friend.
Rule #6. Have a plan B, and a plan C for moving and storing your supplies away from the prying eyes of government and from nosy friends and neighbors.
Rule # 7. Stay well under the radar of federal, state and local governmental entities, social media, and educational institutions. Pay your taxes, put on an impassive face to the world, and trust no one who is not well known to you.
Rule #8. See Rule #1.
Oh….where was I? So here is a basic non-Second Amendment related, list of what you and your family should consider socking away for the inevitable progressive Marxist shortages ahead. All of these items should be purchased in multiple stores, just a few items at time over the next year. Please don’t clear any shelves, let others have an opportunity to also purchase these items.
How much to buy? A 12–18-month supply of most of these items should suffice for the first round of national shortages. Twelve to fifteen months from now, toss some grass into the air and see what direction the political and financial winds are blowing. You will know what to do next.

Please consider getting in better physical shape, no matter your age or ability. Walk more, eat better. Get your COVID vaccination. Cut down on your computer time and stay the heck off all social media. Pray. Meditate. Read. Love you family and tell them so often.
Stay as calm as you can and be really nice to everyone. Our planet, our country, and our family, friends and casual acquaintances will require an extra smile a day plus a kind word. The Marxists and the MSM are gleefully injecting the country with digital heroin 24/7 hoping to make you angry, upset, fearful and helpless.
You must not let them succeed.
