The Changing Face of Freedom Prepper
What a week it was – still is. It almost seems like we’re witnessing the slow-motion disintegration of Western Civilization and the United States before our very eyes. That might be because we are. Before we get into some of the bigger news stories of the past week, you may have noticed a few changes at Freedom Prepper.
As I mentioned in a blurb on Monday, we are striving to become the biggest, best, and most relied upon preparedness site on the internet. Part of this involves formatting. This winter we switched over to a Drudge Report-style layout. That worked well as far as presenting quick links to interesting articles around the web. It didn’t work so well – look so good – when running original or curated commentary. And we want both – for you!
This week we re-launched the site with a new look that will deliver easy access to the best of the web and coherent presentation of articles like this one. Scott and I will, sooner or later, be creating more original content – including videos. I actually got some praise and a request for more videography this week from a fan (thanks again, Mitchell!). It’s coming. And soon. Promise.
All of this is a work in progress. I guarantee that, as you read this, it may not look quite right. We’re working on that. Scott and some professional programmers are … I’m more like a possum with a laptop… Anyway, the formatting will improve to a seamless beauty. Right now we’re having issues with page stability – it all works but it needs to gel. Please be patient. And the links to our older posts need tweaking; they’re all still there – all 2,000+ of them – but they don’t exactly come out right. They will. We have the new stuff down – otherwise, you wouldn’t be reading this. Thank you for that, by the way. And now….
In the News:
Comey Firing and the Political Circus
President Trump fired FBI director Comey and set off a firestorm of insanity in D.C., where the insanity is always at a fever pitch. I’m not even going to speculate any more as to what any of this means. There’s a special prosecutor … for something. They Dems are murmuring “impeachment.” Republicans are struggling as usual with everything. The media is having a field day. Russia. Russia. Russia. Russia.
My thought, here, is that this is all is a distraction from something nefarious. And that could be anything or some combination of things. War, taxes, inflation, a debt bubble, who knows. The only certainty from this madness is that normal people need to prep like never before – something is coming. Mark. My. Words.
Trump in the World
The American President has just embarked on a 15,000-mile tour of the Middle East and Europe. The Donald will visit the terrorist kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Israel-obsessed nation of Israel, and the Vatican, which may or may not still be a place of Christendom. Again, the only thing certain is the uncertainty.
I would prefer the man stay in the White House. We have a few critical issues in THIS COUNTRY! Little things, campaign promises and such, like: the Wall, taxes, Obamacare, regulations, never-ending debt, an out-of-control budget, wars everywhere, crumbling roads, and 10,000 other problems. I think a “NATO of the Middle East” can wait – that, or they can do it on their own. Pitiful.

One of those domestic issues that needs immediate redress, and won’t get it, is the NSA-CIA-FBI-DIA spying apparatus. This week one of their viral creations got loose and wreaked havoc on the world’s computers.
These infestations seem to mainly target Microsoft machines. If you have one, update your security and backup your data! Don’t wait for the next wave. And have no faith in the government to fix these problems as they are the ones who created them.
Street Terror in NYC
This is the most immediately important story for preppers of this week. Yesterday, some borderline non-citizen, named Richard Rojas, a 26-year-old piece of trash, drove his Honda down the sidewalks of Manhattan. He put twenty people in the hospital and killed this beautiful woman:
This has me in a blind rage! Twitter.
The idiot government and the lapdog media trip all over themselves to claim this is not terrorism. What else could any sane person call it?! If Rojas isn’t an ISIS agent, then he’s an ISIS imitator. Either way, it was terrorism. He screamed at the police arresting him, “I wanted to kill them!”
There are two lessons here: 1) do not trust the government! Ever! 2) And more importantly, practice situational awareness – everywhere and all the time. None of the people Rojas hit planned on an emergency in Times Square. That was a fatal mistake. You can’t fight off a Honda Accord but you can get out of its way.
It’s time to wake up. Maybe it’s time to get angry. It’s definitely time to prep.
Have a great weekend and we will see you on Monday. God Bless!
