Technical difficulties delayed it. Today is November 1 — the start of the reduction in food stamp benefits to almost 50 million people. Most were not aware this was coming, and few who actually need them to eat will not be affected. Get prepared NOW!

“Put your own oxygen mask on first!” is one of the first instructions flight attendants give before taking off. The reason is simple: If you haven’t taken care of your own needs first, you are in no position to help others. The Precinct Leader will be a prepper for the same reason.
The number of potential disasters seems to climb daily. Besides all the freaky weather events, real possibilities include power grid failure (by solar events, EMP attacks or sabotage), banking failures, economic or dollar collapse. Any of these will result in masses of angry, hungry people with no food and water in a short time.
The stark truth is that you are on your own. Experience with Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy shows us that the Federal government will be of little help. The government is spending $ billions preparing for martial law and war on the American people, not preparing to help mitigate any crises.
If you need any motivation for preparing in case the power grid goes down, I suggest you watch National Geographic’s disturbing American Blackout. The problem could actually be much worse. Some suggest that it is “predictive programming” by the Elites. Most informed people will take it as stark wake up call.
For most people the best bet for survival is to prepare to ride out the situation where you are now. That is, unless you less in one of the megapolis areas like LA, New York City or Chicago, or any area that could become a site for urban warfare when the welfare checks stop coming, or can’t buy anything. In that case, figure out where you are going, and start making arrangements.
Most people don’t have the time or resources to be a “Doomsday Prepper.” For most it is unnecessary. Prepare to live in your own neighborhood, where you know the people, the surroundings, and have your stuff. Most of all, prepare. Good intentions won’t feed you.
The time for preparing is short. Stock up this weekend. Yes, this weekend.
The precipitating event could be the 10-15% cut back in Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (Food Stamps) beginning November 1st. That is the equivalent of about 16 meals a month for a family of three. “Riots begin the same way,” says President of America’s largest food bank. We already saw early unrest and small-scale rioting with the SNAP cards malfunctioned in several states in mid-October.
I’m not alone in forecasting riots and martial law in our near future. While I’m opposed to the massive welfare system that’s developed in my lifetime, it is extreme irresponsibility for Obama and Congress to unexpectedly cut back on a program on which almost 50 million Americans have come to rely. This program is the only reason we don’t have Depression-era food lines in the streets. This could be Obama’s own Hunger Games as a prelude to martial law.
Today is the day you need to ramp up your preparations. The Feds are preparing for what can only be future riots and civil unrest. What the Feds aren‘t doing is encouraging the people to be prepared and self-reliant. Your life may literally depend on taking your money out of the bank — and converting it into the food, water, medicine and other supplies that you need to live on. Procrastination could kill you if you don’t. (Here are some ideas on how to do this without inadvertently running afoul of the law.)
And store up some extra to help your less prepared neighbors and family. You will need their support in a number of ways with what is coming. I recently had good experience with eFoodsDirect.com, though there are a number of reputable food storage companies out there.
