According to Barack Obama anyone not pushing Washington's propaganda and the official narrative regarding the economy, is "peddling fiction." No matter how many documents, experts, banking institutions and investors are quoted directly which point to an economic downturn that will make 2008 look like a walk in the park, those that dare to actually report it are accused of "fear porn."
Message to the doom and gloomers - By being aware of what is really happening versus what the MSM is peddling, you have a chance to prepare for it. Seeing what is happening right now in Venezuela, riots, food shortages, should be a wake up call to stock up on food, water, basic necessities that Venezuelans say they cannot obtain now, so they are left to go without.
Let me offer up just one example which shows the stark contrast of those living in denial, those that scream "fear porn" and "doom and gloom" because they don't want to know the truth, and those that use the same truth as a message of hope and as an incentive to prepare and to help others prepare.
Back in August 2015 I wrote a piece on what would happen should an EMP attack upon America happen, using the testimony of Dr. Peter Pry, a member of the Congressional EMP Commission and executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security who asserts that an EMP event could wipe out 90 percent of America's population.
We went through hypothetical scenarios, showing the difference between those that were prepared and the chances of survival for those that were not prepared.... what we saw from the majority in that comment section was not people screaming "doom and gloom" but a community effort to inform, help, provide ideas and tips on preparation and survival.
What we saw was HOPE.
Alternative Media counters the rainbow and unicorn news of the Hell Stream Media and frankly, those that only see "doom and gloom," refusing to hear, see or speak of the very real events occuring right now, should stick with the news outlets that do nothing but push Washington's propaganda, burying the "bad news" deep within their papers or reports.... because those folks are not going to survive any disaster that hits, natural or man-made, because they are so busy denying the truth they aren't preparing for it.
They are the 90 percent.
Those that use the events they are seeing occur, to prepare mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically..... they are the ones that will survive... they are the 10 percent.
It isn't the "news" that is bad or good, it isn't those warning of what is coming..... it is what the individual does with it, uses it for. Knowledge is power, the more knowledge you have of what is happening in the world today, the better your chance of surviving any type of disaster or event.
Here at ANP we consistently see people that are just awakening, saying they are just starting to prepare but don't know where to start, so in the spirit of hope and helpfulness, we have found some articles and videos about prepping for beginners.
We encourage readers to add their own tips, ideas, experiences and links they found helpful or think will be helpful to those just learning about preparation and survival.
