One More Wake Up Call

In the wake of the latest acts of terrorism, our prayers are with the people of France, and people the world over. One of the frequent comments we've read since last night is, where is this going to happen next? When will it happen here? Unfortunately, we live in a day and time where the expectation of a terror attack, an economic collapse, or a government take over of the country is common around the globe. No wonder there are so many people that continue to deny the possibility of these things happening, they are unbelievable. How can our world have come to this place and time? How could we have let this happen?

Giving in or appeasing has never been equated with safety or respect of power. Once civilization reached the point of meeting the demands of people because if they didn't it was racist or a hate crime, all was lost. If someone shows up at your door demanding entrance and accommodations, can you deny them? Maybe on an individual level, but apparently it is no longer allowed on a national level. Why is that? Who decided to change the rules? Bleeding heart liberals, that's who. People that never worked a day in their lives. People that think it's okay to take something you have just because they want it. That is a generalization and may include some folks that don't actually deserve to belong in that group, but if they don't, they know who they are, and can exclude themselves.

We watched a video by Ann Barnhardt not long ago and the the statement that stuck with me the most is that she is no longer a nice person. Nice is weak, nice gives in to the demand of others whether they are valid demands or not. Nice gets people killed. Frank and I are no longer nice people either. Sometimes we offend people with the things we say and write. That's okay. Sometimes things need to be said that others don't want to hear.

Recently Frank had a conversation with an intelligent, professional woman. She has a gun, but won't shoot it because she is afraid of it. Her husband now travels a lot and she is home alone with their three young daughters, all beautiful girls, and so is this woman. When Frank asked her what she would do if men broke in and had their way with her oldest 10 year old daughter, what would she do, she almost looked sick at her stomach. What would you do? Watch? Scream? What good would that do? There are things in this world that are not nice and getting less nice by the minute. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about it but watch it unfold, and unfold it will whether we like it or not.

If you are someone that is preparing for an uncertain future, because you have no doubt it is coming, I'm sure the events in Paris have caused your heart to skip a beat or two. It has also caused you to review your preparations, and begin another list of things you would like to have, or need to have, before that time arrives. I can only hope that Christmas trees will find many, many useful instead of frivolous, items underneath them this year. Things like buckets of wheat and a grinder, extra socks that the kids will grow into, garden seeds and tools, anything that is needed for a serious survival lifestyle.

 
As Frank and I read the news about Paris last night, we began to discuss what we needed to get, before we can't any more. That is something we have given much thought today. We are making serious plans to accomplish or acquire some needed things. Soon. Very soon.

One thing we need to keep in mind is the curfew or martial law that occurred in France as these coordinated attacks unfolded. It's something to seriously think about. What would martial law do to your life? Your routine? Access to family or friends? There are areas of the country that are having difficulty dealing with law enforcement because of heavy handed, militaristic tactics. There are other areas that work hand in hand with their law enforcement officers, because they are all on the same page, protecting and serving their communities. Do you know which kind of community you live in?

There will come a day, that appears to be getting closer by the second, that we will no longer leave our home. Will it make any difference? I don't know. Will there be folks that come to the gate begging or demanding? I don't know for sure, but we expect them. Will we be able to defend what is ours and survive the coming catastrophe? I don't know that either. What I do know is that we are no longer nice people. If someone comes demanding, it won't end well, one way or the other. If someone comes to harm and take, that won't end well either. Will we come out on the 'winning' side of any of these encounters? There will come a day when winning means living another day and losing means death.

What I do know is that resentment is building. There are people that resent the fact that some people worked hard all their lives for what they have. There are people that demand to have what everyone else has that haven't worked a day in their lives. There are people that resent folks that can't work through no fault of their own. There is a growing group of people that resent working hard all of their lives to pay for those that refuse to work. There is a national movement to divide the races that is causing groups of people to be a target just because of how they look or talk. This too is building resentment among different peoples. What good can possibly come of this? Will people band together and refuse to take part in the coming wars against those that aren't the same or don't have as much? We can only pray so. But it won't be the case in many locations, that has already been proven over and over and over. What about where you live? Know what surrounds you.

So, will all of our preparations make a difference in the coming collapse of society, or not? There is no way to know that until it happens. We only know that if we are to die, by whatever means, that we want to do it 'with our boots on' working side by side to survive, doing everything we possibly can. Neither one of us want to have to look the other in the eye and say, "Well, things will be okay. The government will take care of us." Or the neighbors, or the notorious 'they' will take care of us. There is no way on earth that we want to be dependent upon someone else to provide when we are perfectly capable of doing it ourselves. Dependence is weakness and when the SHTF, weakness is death.

The atrocities in France are one more wake up call for all of us. We don't believe anyone can actually be ready for what is coming. We can only try to be ready, and try with all our might. If there are those among us that choose not to try, then they have sealed their fate. If a person will not lift a finger, or spend a dollar to provide for themselves, their children and their families, then I pity them and we'll pray for them, but there is no way we will jeopardize our lives and safety for them. We will not be nice appeasers giving in to the demands of those that would not be satisfied with a crust of bread for a starving child, but insist their needs and wants be met just because we did prepare and have food on our table with a warm roof over our heads.

Folks, there are some very, very difficult decisions coming to all of us. If you have not given deep, serious thought to what you will do in the coming days, you need to. Mental preparation is one of the most important parts of being prepared. Discuss what you will do when someone comes demanding to be fed, housed, clothed and entertained. Come to a decision that everyone can abide by, and do it now before the scenario unfolds. Remember, united we stand, divided we fall.

I can only wish I never had to write these words. Wishing doesn't change the condition of the world or the need to be prepared for what is coming. Evil walks the land and it has many faces. It laughs in the face of death, terror and horror. Plan, then execute your plans with unwavering determination.

Until next time - Fern

  1. Fern - I know how much you and Frank like to study history along with current events. I have recently come across information about r/K Theory through Bill Whittle.

    I'm including a link to a post I just did which also links to an earlier post which has a recent video of Bill Whittle having a discussion with Stefan Molyeaux about r/K Theory. It's an eye opener.

    http://adriennescatholiccorner.blogspot.com/2015/11/pianist-plays-imagine-for-crowd-outside.html

    I putting this in the combox so as to not clutter up your email. I know you have comment moderation, so please feel free to trash this comment. The information is for the two of you and not to advertise my blog.

    If you find the information helpful, you may want to do a post on it.

    I found it so important that I have already ordered the book The Evolutionary Psychology Behind Politics: How Conservatism and Liberalism Evolved Within Humans which explains r/K Theory.

    1. Adrienne, I also listened to that r/K theory interview and thought it was incredible. I wish I had more time to look into it further.

    2. Since I have an estranged commie type brother, I spend a lot of time trying to figure out the whys of his behavior and thought process. r/K theory explains it to a "T".

      I'm looking forward to reading the book.

    3. Hi, Adrienne. I listened to the 41 minute Bill Whittle talk about the book you referenced and it was very interesting. I like Bill Whittle's work and because of his recommendation and his explanation, I will do a more in depth look into the book. Thank you for the recommendation.

    4. I just received my copy today and have already dived into it. It really explains so much. I met Bill when he spoke in Coeur d' Alene, and he has such an impressive mind. I might add that he is also very charming, funny, and friendly.

  2. Hi Fern,
    It is terrible news from Europe and especially the country of France about the muslim bombings and shootings . You hit the nail on the head with the very trying question , where next ? The muslim invasion of Europe is a foretelling of what we in the U.S. may be in for in the very near future , especially if the government starts to import " refugees" , and I use that term very loosely. It should come as no surprise to the U.S. when similar events occur on our soil , remember , we are considered the great satan by the muslims . When atrocities are done in the name of allah and the muslim community makes no effort to show any sorrow , any grief or any signs of condolence I become very distrustful of them to say the least . Their silence speaks volumes to me .
    I believe it will soon be a very intense time of difficult questions , difficult answers and and some very difficult decisions for Americans . Yesterday was the best time for us to have the discussions , before things started to get a little dicey . Right now is the next best time to have those discussions , do it now . What will you and your family do when events seem out of control ? Can you feed ,clothe ,protect and provide for your family ? Can you afford to provide charity to the young and the elderly ?
    Martial law is our biggest concern , I can't fight the government, state , or local police , nor do I want to even consider that option .I love what this country once was , but I know that it will never be the same in my lifetime .
    I suggest going to the Lord in prayer for guidance , comfort and direction in all things , big or small .

    1. Hello, Bluesman. Your thoughts are well put, well placed and I concur. Our government is shipping in immigrants from Syria, Somalia and other peace loving nations. I don't question any more our governments motives. I don't see this thing turning out well, people have been blinded and most of those that can see stick their head in the sand. I really appreciate your comment. Thank you.

  3. For some time I have been watching with interest the escalation of racial hatred in our country. And then Paris was attacked. It didn't take me long to figure out that we have threats coming on at least two fronts. Our leaders in government have done everything they could think of to promote hate and discontent between the races. And they roll out the red carpet to "refugees," including those whose only goal is the elimination of all who do not believe in their god.

    We are living in a runaway freight train world. The bridge about a mile down the line is out. A wreck is inevitable. If we don't do everything we can to get ready, we will go down in flames.

    As far as sharing what I have stored for my family, I don't think so. I will not sacrifice one of my own to appease those who are busy playing while I am working to keep my family alive.

    There are no safe zones. Politically correct microaggressions are a crock of crap. If a person needs a trigger warning so they don't have to deal with anything bad, I have a news flash for them. Nobody is going to give them a warning when something bad is headed their way. Just ask those poor people at the theater in Paris.

    1. Vicki, your comments are well taken. In our house you could not have said it any better. I don't think it can be stopped. We're going to have to deal with the consequences that have been put in motion, and we may not weather well at all. I hate saying things like that, but it appears that the writing is on the wall. We are weak as a society and our leaders are traitors. We have been sold out. It's not that they can't see. They can. I wish I knew why, but I will probably never be privileged with that information. We all need to do the best we can. Thank you again.

  4. Fern, I have been fighting for Constitutional government for 40 years. Our Founders' Republic has been squandered. Just 25 years ago the world could look to Reagan’s ‘shining city on a hill’. Its lights are now dark. America is bleeding out. Something will replace it. Pray for that.

    Getting a grasp of all the battlefronts was overwhelming; a deceitful tyrannical government, treasonous leaders yielding sovereignty to powerful globalists, a media controlled by wolves, an emerging Nazi Police State, Socialists tearing down God’s natural laws to promote deviant behaviors, gun-grabbers intent on disarming Americans, Nazi indoctrination centers posing as ‘schools’, murderers of 3,000 unborn babies every day, warmongering Neocons murdering and harming millions of innocent people in their continuous wars.

    Christ distilled them into one word, ‘wolves’. And Christ warned us about ‘hirelings’ who are supposed to be shepherds protecting us from the wolves. They should be willing to lie down their lives to protect us. But hirelings flee when the wolves attack the sheep. (John 8:11-12) Sadly, America’s House of God fell first. It fell to hirelings.

    There is hope for the future. But for right now follow Fern's advice. Take action to protect your loved ones. Parents, that’s YOU! NOW! And give your children the greatest gift, Jesus Christ.

  5. Islam is the enemy....always has been. Total odds with Christianity. The president is a Muslim and what our enemies cannot do from without, he is doing from within. Divide and conquer and the stupid liberals in this country are too busy being offended and huddling in their safe zones to notice. Even the so called Christian churches are in on the resettling the Muslims here, They are the current temple money changers and Judases, selling us down the river. But, take heart....this has all been foretold and those of us who are awake will know the face of Satan and look away towards our God.

    1. How can people be so blind, Tewshooz? I know what has been foretold, but why is it so easy for so many people to swallow everything hook, line and sinker? And then turn on those that don't? It's an amazing world we live in and one I don't like looking at very closely sometimes. It seems to just ooze evil out every pore. Thank you for your comment.

  7. I've thought about your post today, wanting and needing to reply. My heart hurts for the people of Paris, for the families that lost loved ones. I believe that soon it will come to OUR country, maybe to your town.

    Are you prepared? What are you waiting for? Maybe you need to dust off the box that your canner or dehydrator came in, and learn how to use it before it's too late. I pray that you're ready.

  8. Hi

    I am from diret German ancestry, I live in NZ , here its a very peaceful country, what sickens me and has me very very hopping mad, is the MSM even here talk about the terrorists ! no one in the MSM mentions the " I " and " M" words ! no one else dares breathe the jihad word !, the PC correct brigade of loony lefties and elite university professors never talk about the violent 103 verses in the koran or the verses in the Hadiths or the Sura that call for the killing of the Jew and Christian, the culpable and traitorus leaders we have in the West are opening the doors even wider two days later, down here they talk about how the ideas promoted by the right are the cause of the problem and how here in NZ we need to let in many thousands more of Islamic refugee's and must tolerate them because its racist otherwise !.

    1. Hello. Thank you for sharing a different perspective. Look at what's happening in Sweden, they have an open door policy. I guess if the system is not abused, for whatever the reason, then it is a good thing to help those in need. But letting a destructive foreign army into your house or your country is suicide. That's what we're doing. We are inviting our enemy into our houses. How stupid are we? No kidding. How disillusioned and blind have we become to not see the enemy looking into our eyes, taking what we have and reconstructing the hell holes where they have come from? We have done this to ourselves, just look at what's happening in Sweden.

  9. Merkel is a traitor, I don't know what her real motivation is, but its all not good, my Auntie's in Germany have been told that they must make a room available for a economic refugee , they will be paid 15,000 Euro as a once only payment, if they refuse making a room avilable then the fine is 50,00 Euro and legal action from the town Burgameister ( Mayor ) , note this is legally enforceable in Saxony and lower Silesia, the German people themselves have done this by allowing the stigma of being callec a nazi tag to stick. Anyone speaks up they are labelled a " Nazi " and then imediately shut up.

    My prediction is civil war in Germany, it is too late to stop this, firearms ARE avilable in Germany and many in the country have arms hidden from the end of the war, so many people in Germany are angry and scared, the country cannot cope with millions of Moslem men who are angry with ideas of Jihad , so please if you read this, please pray for the Germans who also prepare and see the storm ahead, many of us will also suffer, I think many Germans will also die when the storm of Islam rises, so America will also suffer our fate, I am fortunate to not be in Germany, but all my relatives are, it wil not matter which western country you are in soon, we can but prepare accordingly.

    1. Remember back to your 2010 Census form when the Guvmint asked about your house? How many people, how many bedrooms etc. Do you actually think they didn't ask for this exact situation? How long will it be before the Guvmint will tell you to make room, under the threat of the gun, for some Islamic family in your spare rooms?

    2. Thank you, Wolfgang. I am sorry for those countries, as I am sorry for the USA. I was once told that kindness can be seen as weakness. Due to past failed societies, we have burdened ourselves with weakness. There are multiple examples, but I can't mention them because it's a hate crime. This is where we are, we are all going to suffer and I don't know what the outcome is going to be. This is the way it is. Today it is raining at my house. This is the way it is. Thank you for your comments.

  10. While watching the horrific scenes in Paris on TV my children (20 and 16) commented that they are glad we live in the country as it won't happen here. It broke my heart but their father and I had to inform them that it could happen anywhere. Yes we live in Australia and yes we live in the country but that doesn't mean we are totally safe. All we can do is prepare as best we can, hope and pray. DH and our worker where discussing later just what an attack on a country town would mean. It was very simple - it would be a statement that NO ONE IS SAFE. We are at WAR of that I'm totally convinced and my Mum made the comment that every generation experiences war (she is in her 70's) but each time war is different with different rules and aggressors. This mass exodus of refugees is for a reason and it terrifies me to think of what that reason is.

    My prayers are with you all no matter where you live.

    1. Calidore, thank you for your prayers. I believe you are right, we are at WAR. But our western ways show us that we're slow learners. We as a country and government still think that the might of an aircraft carrier will intimidate and defeat our enemies. How foolish! War is not fought with who has the biggest stick, but we just can't seem to get rid of that illusion. We can bomb all day long and it will not stop what is happening or what is coming.

      I'm not sure where to go with this, but we have got to change the way we see things. We have got to fight on their level, but to do so we're going to have to change our compassionate, sympathetic, open door ideology. We have cornered ourselves with some of our civil rights laws. It appears that everybody has a right to do whatever, except the majority. Our foundation has been eroded, we are under attack and it's against our laws to even discuss what is necessary to do to fight this enemy.

      Our soldiers are gallant, our leadership are cowards.

      Prepare. Thank you.

  11. It seems that most of the "refugees" shown coming off the boats and marching into towns are mostly young men. Where are the women, children and elderly? Did these young men abandon their families in war zones to death? Shouldn't they be trying to defend their country?

    1. Good points, Susan. They are defending their country against the Great Satan because that's why they're here. When we send our warriors off to fight, we don't send their families with them either. And when they send their warriors off to fight, they're not sending their families with them either. So it's obvious these are not refugees, this is an army. We are under attack. We are housing and feeding this army so they can bite the hand that feeds them. That's why you don't see the women and children, because they are back home praying for their soldiers, just like we pray for ours. Thank you for your observation.

  12. It brings me great comfort to read "Thoughts" as it shows me that there are folks in this country that believe the way my wife and I do. I pray that God brings us together like magnets when it all falls down around our ears.
    I am a firearms instructor. It brings a big smile on my face when I teach people how to defend themselves and their families. I see a confidence build within them that is up lifting in a serious way. We must "fight the good fight" we must "trust and obey" we must "pray" we must "be vigilant" (G)
