“Threat of Civil Unrest” – Preppers Who’ve Relaxed Under Trump Have No Idea the Hell That Is Coming

I don’t believe it is as pervasive as certain people may think, but there is a notion among some in the liberty movement that with Donald Trump in the White House the need for crisis preparedness has subsided. Because preppers and survivalists tend to lean towards the conservative side of things, the urgency for prepping almost always explodes when the Democratic party is “in power.” As they say, for example, Barack Obama was perhaps the greatest gun salesman in history with the gun industry growing over 158% during his two terms.

Now with Republican dominance in Congress, Senate and White House, there is a possible temptation for conservatives to become complacent and comfortable once again. In 2017 so far, ATF background checks have dropped by at least half a million since this time last year, and gun company stocks are turning negative. There are also rumors floating around that survival food companies are suffering from a severe crunch in sales. Though I have not yet found this to be substantiated, I can verify that many preppers I deal with on a daily basis seem to have relaxed their guard.

I would point out that this is not necessarily all due to Trump. The gun market is likely saturated after eight years of Obama, and one must also consider that as the U.S. economy continues to decline, surplus cash used for prep gear is going to dry up. That said, I do think it is important to examine any assumptions liberty activists might have in terms of a Trump driven “recovery.”

When I began publishing my post-election analysis on what I felt was a predictable Trump win, I did find anger among some activists who decided I was being “too pessimistic,” and that I should join the movement in celebration. Being that I called a Trump presidency half a year in advance based on the premise that the globalists needed a conservative scapegoat for the next phase of the ongoing financial crisis, it was hardly a moment of celebration for me.

There is a common delusion among those that invest themselves in politics that all that is needed to reverse the course of any nation or situation is a “strong leader” with ample cheerleading from the populace. In reality, social and geopolitical disasters are usually far beyond the means of any one politician to change. Economic disasters are even more irreversible. I wish I could pretend to be optimistic, but I am rather well studied in the history of these kinds of events.

Conservatives are especially vulnerable to the idea of a “protector on a white horse” coming to their rescue; a God-fearing hero and statesman, a general and leader of men. But, such people do not exist. There are no supermen. There are no worldly saviors. There are only common men, with common failings, destined to face extraordinary obstacles. The great men of history are not born before hand — they are forged in the crucible of crisis. Great men are not great men until proven otherwise. To assume any political leader is a great man beforehand is foolish, to say the least.

This is why blind faith in a post-Trump renaissance is misplaced. It is something that has yet to be proven, and in the meantime, there are numerous and highly visible dangers on the horizon that demand continued vigilance and preparedness. I will examine one of these primary dangers now…

The Growing Threat Of Civil Unrest

As I noted in my post-election analysis, the political Left has been shell shocked by the rise of Trump and their emotional response would undoubtedly be to double down and become progressively more volatile and more violent. I predicted that this would be evident as winter broke and the cold weather subsided.

The first signs of this are surfacing as May Day is becoming a rally date for social justice mobs bent on disrupting any agenda the Trump administration might have for enforcing immigration laws. The largest of these protests is to be held in Los Angeles, but similar protests are planned nationwide as well.

From what we have seen from previous rallies, it would not be unfair to expect rioting in May. I say this because a tone shift in the left is taking place and extreme reactions are more frequent. The following video illustrates this clearly, I think…

Warning – Explicit

In case you missed it, this guy just pulled an AR-15 on someone simply because they had a MAGA flag on their truck. Not only that, but he FILMED HIMSELF doing it and and apparently posted it on social media. That is how brazen and insane these people are becoming.

Think of it this way — could you have even imagined something like this happening during the 2012 election? It is important not to become conditioned to such behavior as being “normal.”

To be sure, this sort of thing will not be happening in certain parts of the country. In my state of Montana, the assailant would have been shot two dozen times over by our highly armed population regardless of his politics just on the self defense principle. And frankly, I am fine with that. Citizens providing security for citizens is the American way.

What I do have a problem with, though, is the increasing potential for an extreme response from conservatives in the face of leftist lunacy. Meaning, I worry about martial law with conservative support, which in my view is more and more likely over the next two years.

Contrary to popular belief among tough-government champions, martial law often instigates more violence than it solves. The harsher the crackdown, the more vicious the push-back; the more vicious the push-back the more totalitarianism is rationalized by authorities. It’s a terrible cycle.

Preparedness in terms of self defense should be self-explanatory here. During widespread mob action the rule of law is usually the first casualty, even when martial law is instituted. You also never know when some nutcase might declare you a “Trump supporter” (whether you are one or not) as he reaches for a weapon.

It is fascinating to me the level of cognitive dissonance with some liberty activists who seem to think Trump’s first term will be anything other than pure chaos. George Soros, an elitist who often funds the very groups organizing mobs to protest Trump, said it plainly:

“I think Trump will fail.”

“What’s more Soros predicted that the market’s Trump high will soon turn into a hangover. He called Trump unpredictable and unprepared, and said that combination will end up bad for the market.”

Soros and his globalist colleagues do not need to field guesses; they ENGINEER the outcomes that they “predict.” Social unrest at this fragile time would result in the exact market instability Soros mentioned, among other problems.

Look, you may believe Trump is being threatened on all sides by the so-called “deep state,” or you may believe that he has willingly surrounded himself with global elitists because he is a Trojan horse. Either way, the diagnosis for the future is not rosy. It would be naive to think that the globalists would not do everything in their power to foment calamity in the near term. It would be equally naive to believe that such an agenda could be repelled through political means.

The answer, as always, is a prepared citizenry. This can act as a deterrent as much as a measure of comfort. The more prepared the public is for any eventuality, the less affected we will be by disaster. The less affected we are by disaster, the less fearful we will be when it strikes and the less likely we will be to make stupid decisions such as throwing our support behind martial law and the wholesale erasure of the constitution. The more prepared we are, the fewer options available to the establishment when attempting to lure us into poor collective decisions.

Prepping means freedom in the face of uncertainty, and times have never been more uncertain. To summarize: A Trump White House calls for more caution, not less.

  1. How many stories must I read about Soros and the Democrats and their will to survive
    at all costs. Therefore, where are the stories of how the Republicans plan to survive
    under our 45th POTUS. In other words, it is time to kick ass and do not take any names. How often in the past, have I imparted that it is time to get rid of this worthless Black Kenyan Devil of a POS of a token Tar-Baby of an ex-Muslim POTUS, his girlfriend, George “NAZI” Soros, Hillary Rotten Clinton, Valerie Jarrette, Chuckie “BOY” Schumer and the rest of the Communist, over the hill gang. What is stopping us? If Americans can remember their European History, and how in 1789, a rabble French citizenry, grabbed their muskets and pitchforks and stormed the Paris Bastille (prison) and arrested their worthless King and Queen. Today, our worthless ex-44th POTUS, dwells in the vicinity of the White House, and his comrades in his crimes, also dwell in the United States, ready to feel the wrath of our new Attorney General, Sessions, along with our new FBI director, Trey Goudy, left alone to bring these escaped criminals to justice, our 45th POTUS will go down in History as the greatest POTUS. I have never quite understoon how our 45th POTUS, permitted these courts to interfere with his decree of Executive Action to forbid any Muslims from 6 Muslims nations, from entering the United States for a short period time, similar to how Jimmy Carter and the worthless Black turd of a 44th POTUS, made the same decree and never received the same amount of flak that our 45th POTUS is receiving. If there is anyone out there whom is privy to this information, I can be contacted at:


    • ” What is stopping us? ”
      The fact that we would die for nothing. The only media coverage (if any) would be a carbon copy of the Cliven Bundy coverage… variations of “Mad dog ranchers terrorize federal govt protectors”, etc… all while being mowed down by stated unconcerned enemy govt.
      This ain’t 1776 anymore; the govt has, and will use, the bottomless pit of mind-bending firepower and tactical gear they posess, and even the FBI has shown that it doesn’t care one whit for us citizens (RIP, Robert Finicum). We would die for nothing while the media spins a heroic tale of our champion govt.

  2. Anyone who thought a Trump presidency would be an easy one is foolish. While I knew the Left would have a total temper tantrum over this, I hadn’t counted on the deep ideological brainwashing that has taken place over the years. Civil unrest is not a possibility, it is a reality.

    That said, being prepared is as important as it ever was. The turmoil is not going away any time soon.

    • Civil unrest should only occur when the American people get rid of the former
      44th POTUS, his girlfriend, George “NAZI” Soros, Hillary Rotten Clinton, Valerie
      Jarrette, Chuckie “BOY” Schumer and the rest of the over hill gang whom have
      committed felonies for the past 8 years. Therefore, perhaps our new Attorney
      General, Sessions and his side-kick, director of the FBI, Trey Goudy, will main-
      tain the sense of justice that the American people have been crying for, for the
      past 8 years of this worthless Black Communist, Anarchist, Marxist, Socialist,
      Criminal and Muslim’s dictatorship.

  3. I see a “SILVER” cloud on the horizon(like a hoard most can’t fathom)..but then again..the STUPID WHITE BOYS and their STUPID WHITE BITCHES..have “NO IDEA” on how a free republic or free market operates (let alone the history of our Lost Republic)…they will just go on and keep pelosi ,waters.reed, lindsy graham(that flaming queer), mcconnel (the joker),etc. etc.and all the rest of the destructive corrupt insane scumbag TRAITORS in office…GOD help our President Trump!… if he fails Amerika Fails…it is on the STUPID WHITE BOY and his STUPID WHITE BITCHES….no one else…not Russia, not the musloids, not China, N.Korea, not Iran, not the jews….nobody….
