New Poll Damages Economic Outlook
There is a confluence of economic disaster items coming which do not bode well for the U.S. in the near future. This confluence threatens a weakening recovery with a massive knockout punch.

The first indicator was the surprisingly weak May jobs report which coincided with decreases to both March and April job gains. May showed a net gain of 38,000 jobs. March had 22,000 dropped from its job gain while April showed a revision downward of 37,000 jobs. This means, essentially, the government's Labor Department acknowledges only 171,000 jobs gained in a three month span.

But the bad news on the jobs front continues to surge forward because of many factors and jobs, ultimately, are what the economy relies on.

Auto layoffs are on the table now. Despite the increase in price slashing, the inventory of new vehicles continues to rise. There's no room to put any more cars onto the inventory load. Sooner or later (probably sooner) the auto manufacturers are going to have to layoff workers.

The tech sector is also looking at a vast inventory problem meaning the numerous unicorn start-up rush in this area has probably ended. Home construction is also a problem with lending practices tightening just as the price index appears to be starting down--just like in the summer of 2007.

The continued sluggishness in retail sales and a looming burst in construction employment will only add o the unemployment lines.

However, the impending increase in unemployed is really just the tip of the iceberg of economic problems facing America. The number of Americans not in the workforce at all is truly the star spook in this "House of Haunted Horrors."

Express Employment Professionals--a job placement service--released a poll it conducted earlier this week. A whopping 43% (three of every seven) Americans currently jobless have simply given up looking for a job. Put this number in conjunction with the 62.6% still in the workforce you can see there is a problem with Washington numbers right from the start.

If, in answer to a poll, 43% claim they are no longer eligible to be counted "in the workforce" yet the government claims it has 62.6% of Americans in the workforce you wind up with more than 105%. That is an impossibility.

Now the poll did have a minimal number of respondents with only 1513 aged 18 and older. But the discrepancy is startling. More than half claimed not have had a job interview in over 18 months and nearly one-fourth claimed to have been out of work more than 2 years.

Bob Funk, CEO of EEP and former chair of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank, stated the problem fairly bluntly. "It's frightening to see this many people who could work say they have given up. The country cannot afford to let this many people fall behind."

It is a ticklish situation for the politically-correct Labor Department. It does not distinguish between an American or foreign worker in its statistics. To do so would violate someone's assumed Constitutional rights. But what it shows is the unemployment rate is probably closer to being 10 times higher than the official 4.7% rate the government is touting.

Why this is important is because employment is one of two factors the Federal Reserve is using to consider rate hikes. Also important is why the anti-Establishment vote may be much stronger than any of the pundits have acknowledged.

Consider these points from the poll:
       83% of respondents said economic benefits are skewed to the rich (Wall Street and the Bankers);
       66% shunned lower paying jobs because employment costs outweighs the loss of government benefits;
       The number of Americans who dropped out of the labor force in May was not the 548,000 reported by Labor but 664,000. (How can a government agency miss by more than 20%? Maybe those compiling the government reports should be in the unemployment line too.)
        While employers listed more job openings in May, they cut back on hiring at the same time. This means consumer demand for many companies is falling--a consideration which the government does not seem to be recognizing.

While the BLS claims 94.7 million Americans are not in the workforce when the May jobs report was released it quickly adjusted the number to 102.3 million which just about matches the 5% overage in the EEP poll.

But then there must be some "employed" who are not legal to be employed by the mandates of Employment Verification (E-verify) the government instituted.

There is a crisis point coming in America's economy. How soon the layoffs occur in some of the more vulnerable sectors will only highlight the underlying weakness in the economy that has so far been left unaddressed by Washington. That weakness will preclude the political actions that forestalled the worst aspects of the Great Recession. 

Recession is the outcome of slowing growth and the more growth slows with time the harder will recession factors bite when they get rolling. If it is true that the size of the fight in the dog is key, America is facing a dog that is more fight-filled than the British faced in 1776.

In the true Orwellian fashion now typifying 2016, a bill to implement the U.S.’ very own de facto Ministry of Truth has been quietly introduced in Congress - its lack of fanfare appropriate given the bill’s equally subtle language. As with any legislation attempting to dodge the public spotlight, however, the Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act of 2016 marks a further curtailment of press freedom and another avenue to stultify avenues of accurate information.
Introduced by Congressmen Adam Kinzinger and Ted Lieu, H.R. 5181 seeks a whole-government approach without the bureaucratic restrictions” to counter “foreign disinformation and manipulation,” which they believe threaten the world’s “security and stability.”
“As Russia continues to spew its disinformation and false narratives, they undermine the United States and its interests in places like Ukraine, while also breeding further instability in these countries,” Kinzinger explained in a statement. “The United States has a role in countering these destabilizing acts of propaganda, which is why I’m proud to introduce [the aforementioned bill]. This important legislation develops a comprehensive U.S. strategy to counter disinformation campaigns through interagency cooperation and on-the-ground partnerships with outside organizations that have experience in countering foreign propaganda.”
Make no mistake — this legislation isn’t proposing some team of noble fact-finders, chiseling away to free the truth from the façades of various foreign governmental narratives for the betterment of American and allied populations. If passed, this legislation will allow cumbrously pro-‘American’ propaganda to infiltrate cable, online, and mainstream news organizations wherever the government deems necessary.
“From Ukraine to the South China Sea, foreign disinformation campaigns do more than spread anti-Western sentiments — they manipulate public perception to change the facts on the ground, subvert democracy and undermine U.S. interests,” Lieu explained. “In short, they make the world less safe.”

Now that the federal government is officially no longer operating under the prudent and inspire guidance of the United States Constitution, matters have gone awry in a rather huge way. The old adage if you move your feet you lose your seat, has been fully enacted in regards to government operations and social norms.
The United States Constitution plainly states that “We the People” of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

 The Pension Bubble: How The Defaults Will Occur - Peter Diekmeyer

June 10, 2016
Experts worry about stock, bond and real estate market excesses. But a bubble is forming that dwarfs them all: in pension plans. Millions of Americans and Canadians who are counting on pension benefits to fund their retirements risk being severely disappointed.
The hard money community has, of course, been aware of this for some time. However in recent years, even the elites have been taking notice.
One such group, the International Forum of the Americas, will be holding its fourth annual pension conference in Montreal next Monday.
There politicians, financiers and monetary policy officials will discuss the declining rates of return in public and private sector pension plans.
The picture they will paint is increasingly grim.
Pension funds, which have been issuing over-optimistic revenue forecasts for years, aren’t going to earn nearly enough money to pay the benefits recipients expect.
Much of this relates to secular stagnation in the economy.
Bonds, which form a major part of most plans’ holdings, earn next to nothing in interest.
Stocks, which are trading at record levels, despite falling corporate earnings, look to have more downside risk than upside potential.
Worse, if bond returns average 2%, balanced portfolios projecting 7% to 8% annual returns have to earn 12% to 14% on equities investments to make up the difference. That’s unlikely to happen.
At least private sector plans have some money in them – public sector plans are in even in worse shape.
Governments have almost nothing put aside to fund future retirees – and they don’t even fully list their debts.
That process of “cooking the books” ramped up in a major way during Bill Clinton’s administration, whom Hillary Clinton, the current Democratic Presidential nominee, has promised to “put in charge of the economy.”
The upshot is that most Americans and Canadians have no clue how far in debt their countries are. Researchers such as Laurence Kotlikoff , a professor at Boston University and a write-in candidate for President in 2016, suggest that unfunded pension and other liabilities run into the tens of trillions of dollars in the United States. The Fraser Institute has shown that Canada isn’t much better.
Backing off commitments
Ironically, the biggest challenge facing government bureaucrats and private fund administrators has nothing to do with paying back pensioners. They have known for some time that would not be possible.
Their key challenge will be to ensure that shortfalls occur on someone else’s watch.
As such, these defaults will occur at a gradual pace. The first stages, already well under way, include steps such as raising eligibility requirements, increasing the tax burden on “wealthier” recipients and so on.
Congress, which teamed up to cut benefits during the Reagan administration, has been trying to find a way to do it a second time. Once the November elections are over, they will likely give it another shot.
A likely model will be Canada, where, in 2012, the late Jim Flaherty, a political master, camouflaged the Harper Government’s raising the eligibility requirements for Old Age Security from 65 to 67 by delaying implementation for ten years.
Flaherty further deflected media attention from the default by simultaneously banning the penny. Canadian journalists fell for the bait and spent the next week writing stories about the penny, never for a second realizing that Flaherty had slipped one by them.
House prices up 12%, food prices 3.7%. Pensions up 1.3%
Another tactic used by government officials and pension fund managers to avoid paying out pensioners is to inflate away the problem. As John Maynard Keynes, the great economist, noted: inflation is an excellent way to extract wealth, because not one man in a hundred will understand how it was done.
Here is how it works: governments promise pensioners that their benefits will be indexed to protect beneficiaries against rising prices. But they then use selected or massaged statistics to back out.
In Canada, federal (CPP) pension plan recipients will see their benefits rise by 1.3% during 2016. But food prices, according to Statistics Canada, rose by 3.7% last year. House prices rose by 12% up to December 2015 according to the Canadian Real Estate Association.
The controversial John Williams of Shadow Statistics provides credible research about how the data massaging works in the United States.
The effects of prices rising faster than benefits, over time, can be dramatic. If prices rise by 2% faster than pensions each year, then by the 20th year of retirement, beneficiaries will be losing 40% of their purchasing power (I am calculating using a straight line basis for simplicity).
In short, most pensioners won’t have a clue what hit them.
Outright defaults
Seniors vote – and there are a lot of them. So outright defaults on pension obligations will be a last resort of politicians and private sector plan managers.
However, it is starting to happen.
The ongoing saga of the US Central States Pension Fund, whose 400,000 beneficiaries were recently offered cuts of up to 60% in the amounts they receive, provides an excellent warning.
Amazingly the Central States Pension Fund, which manages funds for retirees from a number of companies in 37 states, actually has $18 billion in funds. Managers from those companies simply over-promised workers how much money they would get.
Pensioners in a variety of public plans including Detroit’s - which went bankrupt – and Illinois – which is insolvent - haven’t been much luckier. Many more will suffer the same fate.
Governments still have some time to manage the fallout. So do taxpayers who are counting on those plans to fund their retirements.
For them, the time to plan is now.

Paul Craig Roberts: "Fellow Americans, Wake Up & Escape The Matrix"

Fellow Americans, if you care to avoid vaporization and, assuming we do avoid it, live a life other than serfdom, you must wake up and realize that your most deadly enemy is Washington, not the hoax of “Russian aggression,” not the hoax of “Muslim terrorism,” not the hoax of “domestic extremism,” not the hoax of welfare bankrupting America, not the hoax of democracy voting away your wealth, which Wall Street and the corporations have already stolen and stuck in their pockets. If you cannot wake up and escape The Matrix, your doom will bring the doom of the planet.

Technology workers from Abbott Laboratories gathered in April at a North Chicago bar after the company laid off about 150 of them. Credit Joshua Lott for The New York Times

LIBERTYVILLE, Ill. — American corporations are under new scrutiny from federal lawmakers after well-publicized episodes in which the companies laid off American workers and gave the jobs to foreigners on temporary visas.
But while corporate executives have been outspoken in defending their labor practices before Congress and the public, the American workers who lost jobs to global outsourcing companies have been largely silent.
Until recently. Now some of the workers who were displaced are starting to speak out, despite severance agreements prohibiting them from criticizing their former employers.
Marco Peña was among about 150 technology workers who were laid off in April by Abbott Laboratories, a global health care conglomerate with headquarters here. They handed in their badges and computer passwords, and turned over their work to a company based in India. But Mr. Peña, who had worked at Abbott for 12 years, said he had decided not to sign the agreement that was given to all departing employees, which included a nondisparagement clause.
Mr. Peña said his choice cost him at least $10,000 in severance pay. But on an April evening after he walked out of Abbott’s tree-lined campus here for the last time, he spent a few hours in a local bar at a gathering organized by technology worker advocates, speaking his mind about a job he had loved and lost.
“I just didn’t feel right about signing,” Mr. Peña said. “The clauses were pretty blanket. I felt like they were eroding my rights.”
Leading members of Congress from both major parties have questioned the nondisparagement agreements, which are commonly used by corporations but can prohibit ousted workers from raising complaints about what they see as a misuse of temporary visas. Lawmakers, including Richard Durbin of Illinois, the second-highest-ranking Senate Democrat, and Jeff Sessions of Alabama, the Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration, have proposed revisions to visa laws to include measures allowing former employees to contest their layoffs.
Continue reading the main story
“I have heard from workers who are fearful of retaliation,” said Senator Richard Blumenthal, Democrat of Connecticut. “They are told they can say whatever they want, except they can’t say anything negative about being fired.”
Lawyers said the paragraph Mr. Peña and other workers object to in their separation agreements is routine in final contracts with employees who are paid severance as they leave, whether they were laid off or resigned voluntarily.
“It’s a very, very common practice,” said Sheena R. Hamilton, an employment lawyer at Dowd Bennett in St. Louis who represents companies in workplace cases. “I’ve never recommended a settlement that didn’t have a clause like that.”

But former Abbott employees said the provisions had stopped them from speaking openly with elected officials or appearing at congressional hearings.
“It is very frustrating that you can’t share your story with the public,” said one former Abbott manager, who had worked for the company for 13 years, rising to an important supervisory position. He had prepared a 90-page manual for his foreign replacements showing how to perform every detail of his work. With a disabled child who requires medical care, he said he had to take his severance and its nondisparagement clause, since it extended his medical benefits. So he asked to remain anonymous.
“I’ve been laid off before, I can understand that,” he said. “But these visas were meant to fill in gaps for resources that are hard to find. This time the company actually asked me to transfer my knowledge to somebody else. That changes the equation.”
According to federal rules, temporary visas known as H-1Bs are for foreigners with “a body of specialized knowledge” not readily available in the labor market. The visas should be granted only when they will not undercut the wages or “adversely affect the working conditions” of Americans.
But in the past five years, through loopholes in the rules, tens of thousands of American workers have been replaced by foreigners on H-1B and other temporary visas, according to Prof. Hal Salzman, a labor force expert at Rutgers University.
In March, two Americans who had been laid off in 2014 by a New England power company, Eversource Energy, spoke at a news conference in Hartford even though they had signed nondisparagement agreements. Craig Diangelo, 63, and Judy Konopka, 56, said most of the 220 people facing dismissal had been required as part of their severance to train Indian immigrants with H-1B and other visas.
In a protest, departing employees posted American flags outside their cubicles. As they left, they took the flags down. Mr. Diangelo took a photograph of the flags in his final days at the utility. At the time, he and Ms. Konopka spoke with reporters, including from The New York Times, but they did not want to be quoted, even without their names.
In January, Senator Blumenthal spotted the photograph in an article in Computerworld, a tech industry publication, and was dismayed to learn of the layoffs so long after they happened. In a letter to the company, the senator questioned whether the dismissals were “accomplished through apparent abuses” of visas, and he demanded assurances that former employees would not be sued if they spoke with government officials.
In a forceful reply, the Eversource general counsel, Gregory B. Butler, said the company had not violated any laws, and its nondisparagement provisions were a “standard form release” that did not restrict former employees from discussing their layoffs “with you or anyone else.”
Mr. Diangelo said he was not so sure the company would refrain from legal action if he spoke to the news media. But, he said, “I finally got to the point where I am tired of hiding in the shadows.”

Two years later, his work with a local tech contracting company pays $45,000 a year less than his Eversource salary. Many of his former co-workers are also struggling, Mr. Diangelo said, but stay quiet to avoid provoking the company.
At Abbott, executives announced in February that technology jobs would be taken over by the Indian company Wipro. Senator Durbin, who is from Illinois, criticized the layoffs and said Abbott’s nondisparagement clause was “overly broad.”
According to a copy of the agreement, that clause read, in part: “You agree to make every effort to maintain and protect the reputation of Abbott and its products and agents.”
A spokesman for Abbott, Scott Stoffel, said the changes were part of its efforts to “remain globally competitive and a strong U.S. employer.” He said the company would retain “the vast majority” of its tech jobs in the United States. Nondisparagement clauses like Abbott’s are “very common” in severance agreements, he said.
Mr. Peña said he could afford to turn down his severance payment because he is single and has no children. “I was the only one with the ability to put my foot down,” he said.
He received consistently positive work reviews, and a merit raise weeks before his layoff, he said. With no indication that poor performance was a factor, he believed it was a measure to cut costs.
“Anything that had to deal with technology and resolving problems, that was my satisfaction, my passion,” Mr. Peña said. “But these days that has no bearing on the decision making of the executives in the higher positions.”
Abbott tried to reduce the role of foreigners in the layoffs. Only about 20 percent of the workers brought in by Wipro would be foreigners on H-1B visas, Mr. Stoffel said, while the rest would be American workers.
Mr. Peña said he had been told at first that he would train his Wipro replacements. But after Senator Durbin’s rebuke, Wipro workers were trained only by employees who would be remaining with Abbott, he said.
He and 13 other former Abbott employees filed federal claims saying they faced discrimination because of their ages and American citizenship, said Sara Blackwell, a lawyer representing them. Those claims are confidential. Ms. Blackwell organized the tavern meeting where Abbott workers were invited to mourn their jobs. Of the small group that came, only Mr. Peña spoke up.
On April 20, about two dozen employees of EmblemHealth, a health insurer, protested outside its offices in Manhattan after the company announced that it would transfer about 200 tech jobs to Cognizant, another technology outsourcing company. Even though they were in the street holding signs, the employees declined to have their names used in news reports.

New Tensions Erupt In The East China Sea, This Time With A Russian Twist
Zero Hedge - While China regularly sends nonmilitary patrol vessels to the area, this was the first time a Chinese warship was spotted. Japan's Vice Foreign Minister Akitaka Saiki summoned the Chinese ambassador in Tokyo around 2 a.m. to express serious concern over the matter - "China's actions unilaterally escalate tensions in the area, and we are seriously concerned." The warship, a frigate, was spotted less than 24 nautical miles from the uninhabited island chain. In an interesting twist, Japan said two Russian vessels were also spotted in the islands contiguous zone around the same time.

FBI Runs ‘Hundreds’ of Sting Operations to Create Homegrown Terrorists
Sputnik News - The controversial FBI practice looks to radicalize those who have no previous interest in, or connection to, terror organizations like Daesh, in order to keep arrest statistics high. The FBI has announced that they are ramping up Daesh-recruiting sting operations that legal experts criticize as entrapment and which national security experts see as US law enforcement radicalizing their own citizens to send them to prison. Recent arrests resulted after the FBI shipped fake guns to people who had no prior ties to Daesh and then arrested them for plotting terror actions. The agency also made plane tickets to Syria easily available and then arrested recipients of those tickets at the airport. Most recently, an FBI agent gave a panhandler some money and a knife and told him to stab people "for ISIS." Analysts wonder if rounding up those foolish enough to engage in Facebook conversations with undercover FBI agents and then accepting packages from unidentified sources is the best way to apprehend would-be terrorists. Based on flimsy statements by FBI informants and the barest minimum of evidence, the FBI has expanded arrests and are calling for the speedy detention of terror suspects even when cases lack sufficient merit to prosecute.

 No constitutional right to concealed guns: U.S. appeals court
Reuters - Firearm owners have no constitutional right to carry a concealed gun in public, a divided U.S. appeals court in California ruled on Thursday, upholding the right of officials to only grant permits to those facing a specific danger. The decision by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, a victory for gun control advocates which sets a legal precedent in western states, was seen as unlikely to be reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court in the near future. The San Francisco-based court, in a 7-4 decision, found California's San Diego and Yolo counties did not violate the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which protects the right to bear arms, when they denied some applicants a concealed firearm license. "We hold that the Second Amendment does not protect, in any degree, the carrying of concealed firearms by members of the general public," Judge William Fletcher wrote in a 52-page opinion. Sheriffs in the two California counties had limited their permits to applicants showing "good cause" to be armed, such as documented threats or working in a wide range of risky occupations.

 Big-Brother Pizza: Domino’s to Track Customers on Way to Stores
Bloomberg - Domino’s Pizza Enterprises Ltd., Australia’s largest pizza company, will on Monday start using satellites to follow customers as they approach stores to pick up orders. By tracking pizza-lovers on the street, Domino’s can wait until the last moment to start cooking and ensure orders stay fresh, the company said Thursday. The fast-food surveillance measure comes a decade after Domino’s started to let customers track their own orders. The stock has soared more than 17-fold in 10 years, giving Domino’s a market value of A$6 billion ($4.48 billion). The company is also testing delivery robots and high-speed ovens.

 Lord Monckton
 Written by Onan Coca
 Will the people of Texas find the courage to break free and establish a libertarian paradise in the Lone Star State? I pray that they will.” – Lord Monckton
Lord Christopher Monckton, 3rd Viscount of Brenchley, is a popular figure among American and European conservatives. The brilliant firebrand who was a longtime adviser to “the Iron Lady,” former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, is still stoking conservative fires with his common sense perspective on policy. In a recent interview with the Daily Caller, Lord Monckton argued that the best thing Texas could do for itself (and for the world) would be to secede from the rest of the nation. Monckton cleverly used the current British debate over exiting the European Union, or “Brexit,” to draw correlations for Texas independence.
Calling the maneuver “Texit,” Monckton argues that Texas independence is the most likely way to preserve the best of American culture, tradition, heritage, and politics.
From the Daily Caller:
Monckton begins his case for secession by highlighting the flaws in the American system:
“The United States Constitution has not proven sufficiently robust against the relentless increase in federal power and wealth at the expense of the states,” Monckton said, “and the Supreme Court has increasingly aggrandized itself by inflicting new law on all states.”
“Unquestionably,” Monckton continued, “the quickest solution to this problem for Texas is to exercise the right of secession, which instantly cuts off altogether the power of the federal government to interfere in Texan affairs.”
Monckton points to America’s porous border security as the most important reason for Texas Independence, while also using the opportunity to mock Donald Trump’s “border wall” as an effective solution.
“Texas currently faces incursions from two principal directions – Islamic refugees, genuine or not, and Hispanic migrants from Mexico and all parts of South America. Military action would not necessarily be the most effective method of controlling immigration,” said Monckton.
“Mr. Trump’s proposal to build and staff a Great Wall of America right along the southern border would, if implemented, be expected to have the same disastrous effect on the national economy as the Great Wall of China had.”
“Instead, it should enhance the competitive advantage that its independence will confer upon it by paying lower welfare rates than the Union pays,” suggested Monckton.  Specifically, Monckton recommended “denying both the right of permanent residence and the right to receive any welfare benefits” to anyone from outside Texas and anyone who has not lived in Texas for at least five years.
On Islam Monckton has an even more controversial plan for the new Texas nation – outlaw the Quran.
“Texas might also consider whether and in what manner to outlaw incitement to hatred or to violence. For instance, the Quran contains – on almost every page – violent passages inciting Muslims to hate and even to kill unbelievers,” said Monckton.
“One measure to deal with this problem might be to require every edition of the Quran circulated within Texas to mark out in red all such passages and to contain a plain warning in an introductory page that reading any such passages out loud…would be prosecutable as an offense of incitement to hatred and violence.”
While Monckton’s plan may seem far-fetched, there may one day come a time when many American conservatives look South to Texas as the last great hope for the Republic. Liberal, big government policies are eroding most areas of our country, and most of the conservative states outside of Texas are simply too small to effectively secede. No, if Monckton’s plan is to be successful, it would have to be Texas leading the way.
The question is just how fed up would the average Texas voter need to become to be willing to divorce themselves from the rest of the nation? I’d bet a lot of voters are getting awfully close to that point.

Trump Wins – Anti-Trump Riots Will Increase – The Need To Escape & Evade

ray-gano-med
By Ray Gano
I was talking to my sister just the other day who lives in Texas, and she is telling me that situations there on the border of Texas and Mexico have become like a war zone. She also told me that illegals are becoming more embolden and “flash protests” are popping up in some of the larger cities like San Antonio, Austin and other areas.
The tension is getting  very high.
in the past several weeks I have had a number of people asking me ” THINGS ARE GETTING REALLY WEIRD OUT THERE – WHAT DO I DO IF I AM CAUGHT AWAY FROM HOME?”
See, everyone is worried about a “bug out bag” but in reality for most people they are worried about “getting home” vs “bugging out”.
trump-rally-san-jose-violenceSay you work at a business that could be targeted for anti-Trump protests and you can’t get to your car, you don’t want to get to your car because you have to face these radical anti-Trump, anti-US haters.
We are away from our home, is our family ok? FOLKS, Family is everything!
We are living in crazy times and people are starting to freak out. KNOW that if you are a student of bible prophecy, that this should not catch us off guard.
What we must remember is to stay calm and know that God is in control. Remember – Proverbs 3:5-6
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
BUT… that does not mean that we sit on our laurels, we need to take action because time is very likely going to be against you. The faster you act, the more odds you put into your favor.
If I would be writing this say a few years ago, people would think me to be nuts. Today though, this is a very realistic situation that if Trump becomes president, you know liberal/socialist money is going to start backing illegal thugs and home grown deviants.
So you need to have a plan and you need to be prepared.
This is why I have written this article. To help you get home as safe as you possibly can, and hopefully get home in one piece.

Slipping Through The Lines Undetected

SO many of us think of bugging out of our home to get to a safe predetermined location.
But how many people have a bug out bag to get out of the work place and back home?
Some people call this a “Get Home Bag.”
This is a great bag to keep that “escape and evade clothing” and what I mean by that is a disguise of sorts.

hillary-pres-2016We have seen on TV these thugs attacking anyone with a Trump T-shirt, well something that you might want to keep in your get home bag is a “Hillary For President” T-Shirt.
Yeah, I know it sound weird, but your goal is to get out of the area as fast and as safe as possible. Having some sort of liberal disguise that you can get on pretty quickly could help you to avoid some of these rioters, and even possibly blend in and evade getting victimized. Couple this with a simple hoodie jacket and your get  home back pack and you will blend right in with the rioters and give you better odds in slipping through.
Again, I highly dislike the whole democrat / liberal / socialist agenda that is taking place in the US right now, but we have look at keeping yourself safe and be able to blend in, in other words “Become The Grey Man.” We need to suck up that pride and concern ourselves about getting out of this hostile area and get home.
Think about your loved ones who will need you home as soon as possible.
IF there are riots going on where you are working or around the area you are working, then it is possible the violence can expand and gain footing in other areas.
Don’t think it is possible? Remember the LA Riots and how fast that spread all over Los Angeles? B not only there, riots started to pop up all over the US in the matter of hours.
So you will need to act quickly and get that liberal T-shirt and hoodie on and get the heck out of dodge.

Your Office Bug Out Bag / Get Home Bag

Action Item #1 – Food & Water

If you have been a reader of mine, you know that I am a fan of the ER 3600 Calorie Bar. These taste great and are pre-scored into smaller bars that you can break off or easily cut off with a knife.
You can see the video here that I produced talking about the ER Bar.
WATCH NOW – https://youtu.be/fmzJwbTBGgs
Another item that you need to have in your Office Bug Out Bag / Get Home Bag is a means to contain and filter water.
I am a HUGE fan of Berkey water filters. We use them ourselves and we even own a Royal Berkey Water Filter. These are the best water filters in the world. One of the best things you can put in your bag is a Berkey Sport bottle. This will filter 125 gallons of treated water, 75 gallons of swamp / muddy water. These are a great thing to have on hand to not only keep in your Office Bug Out Bag / Get Home Bag, but also to keep a few in the car and other places. You never know when you are going to need to get some water and these are inexpensive enough that you can purchase multiple bottles.
berkey-sport-bottleHere is a video of me when we lived in Texas of me drinking out of a skanky pool that our dogs and chickens used to drink out of and even bath in.
WATCH NOW >> https://youtu.be/9_qmqfEwcEg
Finally, you want to have water in your bag just in case you cannot supply yourself before you leave your work area.
Emergency water pouches / boxes are a great way to go. The negative is that they will weigh down your pack, so you need to really assess how much you will put in your pack to get you going till you can find some sort of water that you can use your Berkey Sport Bottle.
NOTE – if you are having to seek out water, find your water source and make sure you hydrate yourself by drinking as much as you can there at your water source, then filling up your bottle on top of that.
Throw in a few salt packets or Gatorade packets in your bag so that you can put some in your mouth and then drink some water.
DO NOT ADD SALT OR GATORIAD TO THE SPORT BOTTLE… it will filter those things out as well. But you need replenish your electrolytes. So putting a little bit of powdered Gatorade in your mouth then taking a swig of water will help you build those electrolytes back up again.
Another good thing is adding a bottle of salt pills. These will help you replenish your electrolytes as well. Keeping hydrated and the electrolytes up will help you in your trek home.

Action Item #2 – Gun Shot Kit / First Aid Kit

quikclotAnother item that you want to have in your bug out bag is medical supplies like an Israeli Compression bandage, Tourniquet, quick clot blood clotter. These are needed just in case one sustains gun shot or bad knife cut. If there is a terror event taking place, there could be a chance that you could get cut or shot. You will need to have the items on hand to stop the bleeding.
Something else that a number of people have told me about is having a small tampon in your gun shot kit. A small tampon can be pushed into the bullet hole and then deployed into the wound. The small size tampon is about the size of a 9 mm to .45 calibur bullet. These are made to stop the bleeding and that is what you have to do. Having a few sanitary pads also are also good for knife wounds, bad cuts and scrapes. Again, these are made to hold blood and can help stop the bleeding. You can use some Gorilla Duct Tape to keep these things in place. I talk about that later on.
Another thing to have in your blow out kit is super glue. You would be amazed at the first aid uses super glue has. It is great at closing up a cut quickly. This is why I always keep it on hand.
Having a basic first aid kit in your bag is also a good idea. I created my own and have multiple zip lock bags already to go depending on what I need them for.
For example I have a “blow out” kit. This is for gun and knife wounds and I have all I need in that zip lock bag ready to go.
coleman-first-aid-kit-webI then have my basic first aid zip lock bag with all I would need to treat basic wounds, sore muscles, burns, stings and such.
My final bag is my own odd assortment of stomach meds, allergy meds, head ache, nausea, and whatever else I can think of.
But if you want to keep things simple, then I like the Coleman’s Expedition First Aid Kit. It has 205-Pieces and it is slim in a neoprene sort of case. This will fit well in your middle or front compartment. What is nice is there is enough room to add to this kit some items that you want, for example a “blow out” kit, some stomach meds, or something for sore muscles.

Just a Note on Sore Muscles

tiger-balmThis is something that a lot of people do not think about to put in their bug out bags / Get Home Bag. You are probably going to have to walk home. That may be 10, 20, 30 plus miles. You will be sore, muscles will hurt. So it is a great idea to keep something for sore muscles and pain relievers. Personally I LOVE tiger balm and in fact we use it all the time. It comes in a really small jar that you could keep in the first aid kit and a little bit goes a long way.
Keeping a few pairs of extra socks and a few pairs of extra underwear also in your bag is a very good idea. You do not need clean pants or shirts, but clean socks and underwear are not only a pick me up motivator, but it will help prevent blisters, chafing and fungal infections. Putting a small bottle of Gold Bond Medicated Powder in your bag is also a good idea. This will help prevent any fungal infections taking root.
Believe me, I speak from experience. When I was in Spec Ops and out in the field, we easily walked 20 + miles a day with a heavy rucksack on our back. Having fresh socks, underwear and some body powder was like a blessing from heaven. If you have to walk home, you will be glad for the little comforts as well.
There is an old saying ”Take care of your feet and they will take care of you.” Believe me, this is gospel truth there friend.

Action Item #3 – Clothing, Shoes, Hat & Gloves

While we are talking about extra socks and underwear, if you have to wear more “business attire” that is not made to withstand the elements, you may want to put a change of clothes in your bag as well as a good pair of hiking boots, which you can tie to the outside of your bag to save space.
Amechanics-gloves-web good pair of jeans several shirts, thinking layers, so a “T-Shirt” then a long sleeve shirt and then even a long sleeve wool shirt or light jacket depending on where you are located. IF you are in a colder region, you may want to pack some Thermasilk long underwear. Yes, they are more expensive, but they keep you warmer and they are lighter to carry instead of the bulky cotton ones you normally find.
It is always good to have some sort of head covering like a good baseball hat, stocking cap or both. You lose the most amount of your body heat from your head. IF you keep it covered, it helps keep in the heat. A hat also protects your head from the elements and will cushion a bit if you bump your head against some low hanging branch, or some sort of obstacle you may be crawling / ducking under.
Finally, a good pair of gloves that allow your hands to breathe as well as protect your hands. I like the “Mechanic” brand of gloves. They are meant to take a beating, but they are thin enough to maintain your finger dexterity.
You want to wear gloves on this hike home. You may fall, need to climb walls or fences, crawl on the ground, move debris, a number of things you may encounter where you may need to clear obstacles with your hands. Doing something like that when your hands are not used to it, and without gloves, your hands are going to look pretty chewed up. You will need your hands to get you home, so make sure you protect them with a good pair of gloves that you can really work and maneuver in.

Action Item #4 – Personal Papers, Copies, Cash & Coins

It is a good idea to make copies of all your important documents like birth certificates, wedding certificates, and passport. It is also a good idea to make copies your driver’s license, social security card, and all your credit cards.
Take these along with say $100 in cash (small bills) as well as several ounces of silver and put all these into a vacuum seal bag.
If you do not have a FoodSaver vacuum sealer, then it is a very good investment. Not only can you seal food, make your own MREs and other things, it will also help protect you documents and such that you can then keep in your Bug Out Bag.
Foodsaver vacuum Sealer  http://tinyurl.com/PZ-FoodSaver-Vacuum-Seal
Get all these together and you then vacuum seal it all so that they are air tight and will last.
Renaissance-Precious-MetalsAs always, I recommend getting your silver and other precious metals from Steve Quayle’s Renaissance Precious Metals. He makes it easy to purchase a few ounces just for a situation like this.
Renaissance Precious Metals – http://www.sqmetals.com
Another good thing to put in your Bug Out Bag are family photos. You do not know what will happen in the future and if you are bugging out, there is a serious reason why. So like it or not, loved ones may or may have not made it through whatever might have taken place, so having a good number of family photos sealed up in your Bug Out Bag can be a very positive motivator.
Finally, I recommend Waterproof King James Bible.
water-proof-bibleThis is a great bible. It is made in the USA with a 25% lighter weight paper

Action Item #5 – Tomahawk / Map & Compass

tomahawk-compass-webA much needed tools to have in your Bug Out Bag / Get Home Bag are a tomahawk, map and compass. I personally recommend United Cutlery’s M48 Ranger Hawk Axe with Compass. I personally have this very tomahawk and I have put it through its paces. It is a GREAT cutter and you can put a real good edge on it. The compass is a good military type compass that when you pair it with a map of your local area, will help you get home.
Why I recommend having a tomahawk in your bag is that it will double as a weapon, but you may need it to cut open a door, break a window, chop wood or chop up a wooden pallet to make a fire.
The Tomahawk is a great all around tool and that is why many of the frontiersmen carried them.
The compass is needed to help you get home, especially if you have to go navigate areas you may not know or know as well. You do not know what sort of situation may be taking place, so you may have to avoid areas that have riots, fires, who knows what. So having a map and compass in your Bug Out Bag / Get Home Bag is critical.

Action Item #6 – Poncho, Poncho Liner & Space Blanket

You have to think about how long it may take you to literally walk home. Many people commute and live far from where their home is located. So you might have to spend the night someplace.
Forget those “survival blankets” made out of mylar. They rip really easily, they are shiny like a mirror, and they are very noisy. Plus they really do not do a good job of keeping you warm. They cost what, $3.00 or so? Well you get what you pay for.
space-blanketBut you need something that will help you get home that you can use multiple nights if is necessary.
When I was in Spec Ops we did not have the luxury of sleeping bags. What we used was a wet weather poncho and a blanket type item called a poncho liner.
When you tie the poncho and liner together, you have a pretty good weather proof blanket that you can cover up with and get a good night’s sleep. The newer wet weather poncho also comes in a digital cammo pattern. Covering up with this will also camouflage you and not draw attention to yourself. Being digital cammo, the pattern does well in both a city and urban and wooded environment. You need to remember that things may not be going well and you will not want to draw attention to yourself. So remaining camouflaged may be something that you want to do and having a digital pattern poncho could help you with that.
NOW… to kick this up a notch and this is what I personally carried, was an all-weather space blanket that is the same size as a military poncho. These do not have the hole or hood cut out in the middle. I tied my poncho liner into space blanket and had a great warm blanket. If you have a wife who likes to sew, have her sew the two together, but keep them seam on the edge so that there are no holes in the middle to prevent rain from seeping in. Just so you know, I have slept in mine in below 30 degree weather and it kept me toasty warm.
How I used all these items together…
I would gather up a pile of leaves or pine needles. Once I had a good pile, I would cover that with my poncho. Then lay on top of the soft pile covered with the poncho and then cover up with my space blanket and poncho liner. Let’s just say that I started a trend with my team and we all slept well, that is when we were able to get some sleep.
A good military poncho and poncho liner will also help protect you from the elements, keeping you dry as well as warm as you are walking home.
Pairing the poncho with some 550 paracord, you can also make a shelter out of the poncho and still have the poncho liner to keep you warm.
Here are some examples…
blog poncho
The military poncho is a very versatile tool. But you couple that with a space blanket and poncho liner and you are able to handle just about any inhospitable weather Mother Nature wants to throw at you. These fold/roll-up pretty tight, they are light, and easy to stuff in your small backpack Bug Out Bag / Get Home Bag.

Action Item #7 – Sturdy Computer Back Pack

Speaking of which, where do you carry all this stuff in?
backpack-tomahawkI personally have a Samsonite Tectonic Large Backpack. This has been with me when I speak at conferences; it has traveled with me to Belize, Costa Rica and now here in Panama. I have literally abused this bag and it just keeps going. As you can see in the picture, I always keep it somewhat packed and ready to go. All I need to do is slip my laptop, kindle, a few other items like my tomahawk / survival knife in it and it is ready to go.
Some nice features is that some of the more critical zippers are ” self-healing”, and another thing is that there are nice back comfort pads all in the right places. The back pads also have channels so that if you are wearing it for a long time, your back still gets some ventilation.
This is one tough bag and I have worn out a few of my other back packs, but this one just keeps going. The quality is great and none of the seams have given out or torn. This has easily weighed at times, over 50 lbs when I had it stuffed full with just about everything I need. The zippers did not pop, and the strap seams held up even when I am swinging it up on my back fully loaded.
ONE Negative, is that there are so many zippered pockets and such that you will lose stuff in this backpack. Over the years I have learned to compartmentalize the back pack.
Here is what I have done…
The first small pocket – at the very bottom, that holds my MP3 Player, clippers, chap stick and any meds that I need quickly.
The netted pocket – I do not put much in that I do not want to lose. So I mainly keep wet wipes in that so I can get to them in a hurry if I need them.
Samsonite Computer Backpack – http://tinyurl.com/PZ-Samsonite-Computer-Backpack
First Main Compartment
The first main zippered compartment is all my first aid gear, and I tend to carry a lot of that. Every time we have ran into a situation and I did not have the proper meds, I adjust my med carry. As I mentioned before I separate the first aid items out based on the use and keep them in heavy duty freezer zip lock bags. This way I can grab that certain bag and it has everything I need.
This compartment also has two main pockets and a divider to keep pens, pencils, other small items. That is where I keep my note making items, a small folder knife and my Fenix Flashlight. There is a built in snap link cord that I hook to my flashlight so that I do not lose it. I also might hook my keys to that as well. The second pocket I will keep a battery backup power source to power up my cell phone or such. I also will keep my Kindle in this pocket for quick access.
Fenix PD35 960 Lumen CREE LED Tactical Flashlight – http://tinyurl.com/PZ-Fenix-Tactical-Flashlight
Second Main Zippered Compartment
This is where I keep all my electronic items, cameras, cables, extra batteries. I have other items like some extra clothes, my ER bars and empty water bottle. This is also divided into two main compartments with pockets on the dividers. There is also a pocket on the front wall of the compartment. This is why I say that you can lose stuff in this backpack because of all the pockets. That front wall pocket I will keep more batteries and smaller items and my cell phone wall charger so that I know where it is. All I need to do is reach in, run my hand down that front wall and it will go into that pocket and then I can feel for my wall charger pretty quickly.
If you have not gathered it by now, this is my catch all pocket from food, clothes, electronic gear and whatever else I want to throw in here. This is the largest of the compartments. The second pocket in this main area is where I keep my tomahawk or my Blackhawk Tatang knife, or even both. There is enough room for that.
My Tatang Survival Knife
If you are looking for a great survival fixed blade knife, I HIGHLY recommend this knife. It is a high carbon steel knife that I can sharpen to a razor edge with a rock if I have to. This is why I love higher carbon based knives. This blade is so sharp I can literally shave with this knife.
Here is my Tatang in relation to a K-Bar. As you can see this knife has got some heft and you are able to also choke up on the blade to give you more fighting agility. Hold it by the grip and it will hack into any tree or lop of any branch you need it too. I have also sharpened the top edge, which was sharp when I pulled it out of the box, but now it is razor sharp. This knife with its “Spear point” can literally double if need be as a spear. Strap it on with some 550 cord to a long stick and you have a pretty formidable weapon and a means to defend or hunt if you have too.
It is also very versatile where you can dig with this knife, chop as I mentioned, and even use it to skin out a deer or hog. The edge holds pretty well and I was really surprised. This is a knife that if you had to, you could even throw it. But it would take some practice to do that.
tatang-kabar
This is a beast of a knife and is one of my top ten knives out of all the knives I own. This is definitely my “go to” knives if I needed to be in a survival situation and the main reason why I purchased it.
Blackhawk Tatang Knife – http://tinyurl.com/PZ-Blackhawk-Tatang-Knife
Now back to the back pack…
Third Zippered Compartment
This is the one that is meant to hold your computer. I have an HP laptop and it fits mine perfectly. I do not worry about it getting damaged or banged around. One negative is that you may want to put a little padding at the bottom just to give it some extra padding to protect your laptop. But I am always looking out for my laptop because without it, there goes my livelihood. So I may be a little over protective, thus the little extra padding.
This compartment is not that wide, so it really is meant for your computer, mouse, power cord, mouse pad. You can also put your iPad or Kindle in here as well with some room so that they are not plastered up next to each other.
Other Gear You May Want
I have other odds and ends gear that I like to keep in my bag, some of which you may be interested in having also.
A Survival Whistle – I can whistle pretty loud, but it is good to have a real survival whistle that can be heard from a good distance. It is best to get a marine survival whistle. This has a higher pitch and is ment to be heard over lower decibel sounds like waves, wind and splashing. People hear that high tone and it just does not blend into the natural sounds.
Marine Survival Whistle – http://tinyurl.com/PZ-Marine-Survival-Whistle
skeletoolLeatherman SkeleTool CX Multitool – This is a great multitool, it is on the expensive side because it is the one made with carbon fiber, which makes the weight about 5 ounces. This has all the basic tools that you really need…
  • A lock blade Knife
  • Screw driver with philips and flat head bits
  • Needle Nose Pliers
  • Regular and Hard Wire cutters
  • Bottle Opener / Carabiner
Really, those are all the tools that you will really need in the day to day life. I have used my Leatherman for a million and one things. I got it when they first came out and I have loved it ever since. You can carry it on your belt loop, which is what I often do, or slip it into your pocket. There is a belt holster you can get for them, but I don’t like those so I don’t use it. Clipping it on my right side belt loop and then my cell phone can also help hold it in place which I do clip to my belt.

Uzi Tactical Pen – I know that I have talked about this already, but I LOVE my Uzi Tactical Pen. I have had my Uzi pen now for about 4 years. I love this pen and it writes great. I like that I can get refills for it and it keeps writing. I keep this in the pen area of the back pack.
Uzi Tactical Pen – http://tinyurl.com/PZ-Uzi-Tactical-Pen
Cold Steel Inferno Pepper Spray Pen – Alongside my Uzi Tac Pen is my Cold Steel Inferno Pen. This thing is great and you can carry it with you in your shirt pocket. It really looks like it is a fountain type pen. What I like about Cold Steel Inferno is that it is a foam, not a liquid spray. One of the problems with most pepper sprays is that if there is any wind or breeze, liquid has a chance of some of the spray droplets / mist blowing back in your own face thus defeating the purpose. Cold Steel’s foam does not do that. The foam attaches itself to the face and then instantly melts from the heat of the skin. So wiping it off is difficult. When it liquefies it will run into the eyes, mouth and easily be sucked into the nose. One good shot in the face with Inferno will dilate the capillaries of the eyes causing temporary blindness. It will induce choking, coughing and nausea and most importantly trigger and immediate and massive sneeze reflex (due to the atomized black pepper particles) that will drag the super hot Habanero chili extract deep into the mucous membranes of the sinus cavities of the nose, throat and lungs causing them to swell up and prevent all but desperate life support breathing.

Spyderco Resilience G-10 Plain Edge Knife / Cold Steel Voyager Clip Point XL – This is one of my “EDC” knives. I like big folders and I swap out between this and my Cold Steel Voyager Clip Point XL folder. Right now this is the one that I am carrying and I love it. What is great about the Spiderco knives is that you can do a red-neck fix on them by putting a zip tie on the ring and it allows the blade to be deployed as you are pulling it out of your pocket.
spiderco-resiliance-zip-tie
This is a great all around carry knife that you can keep in your Office Bug Out Bag / Get Home Bag, or do what I do and swap out knives from time to time. So right now my Cold Steel Voyager XL is in my bag but I will probably want to start carrying that again and put the Spiderco back in.
coldsteel-voyager
Both of these knives are big folders, or what some people call “pocket swords.” What I like about these sort of knives is that I am able to “flick” them open with some practice, thus speeding up the deployment, and if you need your knife in a hurry, then this is a great thing to learn how to do. Once you learn how to flick it open, it is a noise that people just know and raises the hair on the back of their necks.
Here is a video review that I did a while back on the Cold Steel Voyager Large and the XL knife.

Gorilla Duct Tape – Yep, every guy needs duct tape, it is what holds the world together. But I really love Gorilla Duct Tape. This stuff really sticks and the cloth tape itself is heavy duty. Odds are that if you are guy reading this, you have already worked with Gorilla Duct Tape and you love it as much as I do. Either you can keep the whole roll in your bag or do like what I do and roll up about 20 feet on your own. It is easy to do, just start unrolling it, and roll it back up on itself. I used a wooden dowel to roll it back onto it self just to give it some rigidity. You can also fold back on itself and accomplish the same thing.
