On Monday, over at Steve Quayle's website, we saw a story at End Times Headlines regarding grocers and how they are preparing for another "huge surge" of COVID-19 infections as the weather cools. According to the story, and the original one from WSJ, these "pandemic pallets' the grocery stores are stocking up for are preparing for panic buying of foods and other highly sought after products in the even of yet more lockdowns and restrictions.
According to the Wallstreet Journal, Supermarkets have already begun stockpiling groceries and storing them early to prepare for the coming fall and winter months, when some health experts are now warning the country could possibly face another widespread outbreak of coronavirus cases and new restrictions.
The report went on to state that Food companies have already begun accelerating production of their most popular items, and leaders across the industry are indicating that they will not be caught unprepared in the face of such an event. The report comes as New York cases have now topped one thousand for the first time since early June and New U.S. cases have reportedly crept above the pace of recent days.
We have been hearing chatter about this upcoming "second wave" since before states have even lifted their previous restrictions on Americans and what they can and cannot do, where they can and cannot go, and whether businesses are "essential" and can remain open or whether the state considers them "non-essential" and forces them to close.
Make no mistake, we are not in any way, shape or form, claiming their will not be an uptick or increase in COVID-19 cases as Winter nears, and we are also still against any type of forced lockdowns or stay at home orders.
As a side note, in some states it will be difficult for overreaching governors to again place the type of severe restrictions against going to church or keeping a business open, because judges have ruled those mandates unconstitutional.
THE MASS PREPPING: COVID -19 OR CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA?
While stipulating the reports and probability that there will be an increase in COVID-19 cases, we have to wonder, when this news is paired with other recent reports, whether all this mass prepping is really because of the expected COVID-19 resurgence or if Americans, businesses, and governments are really preparing for a hot and bloody civil war breaking out across the nation.
As ANP has recently reported, In late July it was reported that sales of guns increased by 95%, ammunition sales skyrocketed by 139%, and sales to blacks jumped 58%.
Individuals do not arm up and stockpile ammunition because they think they may get sick, or that a family member might get sick.
People naturally will increase their protective abilities when they believe they will need to defend themselves, their families, neighbors and/or community.
We at ANP are not the only ones asking this question or connecting these dots as some comments over at the original WSJ piece about the "pandemic pallets," show the same concern over the true reason for all these preparations on the part of those other than the traditional "preppers."
Brad: Are people really stockpiling out of fear of an increase in CV-19, or are they prudently preparing for the inevitable riots (no, not "peaceful protests") which are sure to follow Trump's victory in November? The 2020 Summer of Love wave of destruction was only a dress rehearsal for what is sure to become a long Winter of Discontent. If you can't rule it, burn it.
Paul: Where I live, 9mm ammunition is the new toilet paper. That's signaling something.
With states stockpiling foods and other items, and warnings about upcoming food shortages expected, it is very easy to allow the media to convince us that these states, stores, grocers and other retailers are just preparing to forestall what happened at the beginning from happening again.
That is a reasonable conclusion after all, but many people still have much of that original panic shopping products still stocked in case they need it, so there should be far less panic shopping.
BOTTOM LINE - PREPARE FOR A HOT AND BLOODY CIVIL WAR
The COVID-19 news, and using it to justify some very serious stockpiling by companies, stores, state governments and the federal government, could also be all those entities preparing for something else.
Like the civil war we are watching get more and more violent every day here in America.
With the media, along with the Democrat politicians, actively pushing for more violence and more "protesting" which often ends up blowing up into full blown rioting, we are seeing and hearing a violent crescendo building and building up to the peak, where the fallout from that explosion is about to rain down on all Americans heads.
Anarchy has become a normal sight in some of the most liberal cities in America, and those rioters deciding that they have the right to enter residential neighborhoods, and harass citizens just trying to have a peaceful outdoor meal, with no real pushback from the liberal leaders, or elected politicians in those cities, who can actually expect tensions and violence to decrease rather than increase over the next months?
Seeing the powers that be stockpiling, and Americans arming up to the teeth with guns and ammunition, topped off with the lawlessness and violence seen almost daily now on the streets of American, it behooves us all to make sure we are completely prepared as well.
As promised we have updated out Still/Back in stock page with items available that were not, replacing items that have become unavailable since the last update and willing to add whatever items readers ask us to add.
The food and cleaning items from that list will be at the bottom of this post, and readers can also bookmark the Still/Back in stock page to check back for additions and replacements.
Most ANP readers already prep to a certain point, many advanced preppers could last years if needed without having to enter the civil war fray to get food or basics, but with the indicators we are seeing as to how fast civilization is deteriorating right before our eyes, we yet again encourage everyone to prepare, stock up, replace what has already been used, or just top off the stores you already have.
Remember: Don't just prepare to ride out the month+ until the election, expect the violence to increase exponentially even past the election, no matter who wins, and prepare accordingly.
