17 Things to Do Before the Civil War

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

(Before It's News)





There are 17 things that you must do between now and January 6, 2017, when the Electoral College’s votes are counted by Congress. I predict that this will be a day that will live in infamy and many of our cities could be in flames before the sun rises on January 7, 2017. Martial law could well be in effect by January 10, 2017.  More than likely, you have until 1/5/2017 to be prepared. You cannot be fully prepared by that date, however, you can certainly increase your chances for survival.



We see rioting in the streets in Venezuela over the food lines, year.Subsequently the food lines in Venezuela are a sight to behold and remember, that according to FEMA, we are nine meals away, as a nation, from repeating the same exact thing here in America. Are you ready for when the Civil War commences?

As Donald Trump helps to wipe the cognitive dissonance from our collective eyes, here is a shopping list of what we must individually obtain in order to increase our chances of survival.

On January 6, 2017, when Congress “counts” the Electoral college vote, there will eventuallly be a civil war, no matter who wins. And at the end of the day, Trump cannot save you, Clinton can only destroy you and it all comes down to what you can do and are willing to do to save you and your family.

Here are 17 things you must do, including recommendations for obtaining products and services, before the Civil War begins:

1. Create a Fake-Identity

It may be necessary to become invisible in the event you think you believe that your name could be on a (Red) list because roundups will usually occur in dire situations. Therefore, the creation of a pseudo-identity could become very important.

2. It Takes Money to Prepare

I have committed much effort, time and resources illustrating how a coming economic collapse is unavoidable and how the elite have conspired to steal as many of your assets as possible prior to the collapse. There are some common sense things one can do which could increase the chances of surviving a major societal meltdown resulting from an economic collapse. If you have any doubts as to what is coming, I strongly encourage you to read what I have written about on this topic over the past several months. Ray Charles could see that our economy will not be around much longer in its present form. Your can read these stories hereherehere, here, herehere, herehere, here, here, here, herehere and here.

If you have read the articles at the above links, you should have concluded that it is the height of stupidity to leave your life savings in an institution that is planning to steal from you. You need to divert your cash, other than the ability to pay basic bills, in preparation for what is coming.

Getting your money out of the bank has become an art form and you need to be careful.  In a future article, I will be revealing steps you can take in order secure your money from the institutions that are presently holding you hostage.  I cannot promise you that you will be able to retrieve all of yourassets. However, I can promise you that if you do not act, you will lose everything and you will lack needed supplies to weather what is coming.

I would strongly suggest that you keep your gas tank filled and you have plenty of cash, food and ammunition on hand. It is better to be safe than sorry.

3. Making a List and Check It Twice

Buy a good prepper book. Holly Deyo is an excellent source for this information ( In the interim, procure your food, water, guns, ammo and home security adjustments.  If you do not have a big dog, consider obtaining a pair. These animals will be your companion, home security system and ally if someone attempts to breach your home with bad intent. Of course, you will have to store dog food as well.

Sit down and construct a list of what you will make a complete list after reading a good prepper book.

Make all of your purchases in cash! You do not want to let the wrong people know what you are up to.

4. Rural Vs. Urban

We have to live our lives for today and it may not be possible to move to a rural area because of your job. However, one survivalist that I was speaking with estimates that the rate of survival for a country in economic chaos would be 10 times higher for rural residents as opposed to urban residents. Consider buying a place in an isolated area and commuting to work in the interim.

5. Pay Off Your Mortgage

If you have a CD, a 401k or any other long-term investment, you might want to consider taking the penalty and executing a withdrawal and apply what’s left of the principal, usually about 50% of the original value, and paying down your major debts.The key word here is “consider”. Because nobody can accurately predict the time frames of these kinds of events, one has to judiciously decide for themselves what is the best course of action.

After an economic collapse, you most likely will not have a job and your retirement and savings will likely be wiped out and confiscated. That is why it would be wise to pay down your debt while you can afford to do so because after the collapse, there will still be foreclosures and repossessions and if you and your family survive, you could be on the street if you cannot pay your bills.

6. Buy Gold and Silver While You Can Afford It

Goldman Sachs has been shorting gold. By his actions, George Soros has been telling you to get out of the markets, cash and the American banks. Soros and the rest of the criminal elite have been hording gold as have the BRICS. These entities are telling you, by action, what medium of exchange is going to be of value following the collapse that is coming.

Storing gold and silver is an economic survival strategy which will pay dividends after the smoke begins to clear in the post-collapse era.

7. Practice Austerity Before the Banks Impost Austerity On You

It is critical to immediately eliminate all unnecessary expenses. Give yourself some operating capital. You may be able to purchase a bug-out residence in a rural area. You will certainly be able to afford more survival gear.

In order to increase your immediate cash flow, start an at-home business. Start a business which has virtually no upfront and startup costs.  Even if you are not able to generate much income, you will create a legal tax evasion strategy in which you can legally deduct many of your present activities and expenses (e.g. mileage, the purchase of any office supply, etc.) including survival gear.

8. Create and Store Your Own Food

With regard to storing food, you need to do so immediately. I recommend storing two years worth of food. However, you need to master the art of growing food inside your home. There are plenty of resources which can teach you how to do that. However, you would be wise if you would create a hiding place in which you can store food and water safely in a hidden location.  If you are ever robbed, you will not have exhausted your food supplies.  You are most likely to be robbed by FEMA or one of their mercenary groups (e.g. Academia) during the beginning of the crisis because food and water will be used as weapons to control you. I am personally aware of FEMA going to selected homeowners in order to track a family’s reserve food and water supplies. Remember, water is sunlight and temperature sensitive. There are plenty of prepper manuals that you can consult for instructions on how to meet these needs.

The biggest threat to survival is death due to dehydration and starving to death.  Contaminated water will also pose a threat. There are plenty of places to purchase large drums and obtain water tablets for water purification purposes.  Obtain a pair of water filters in case you have to go mobile to survive.

Finally, learn to grow your own food within your residence. Your garden will likely be raided by humans and hungry animals alike. There are plenty of prepper manuals which can teach you how to accomplish this task.

9. Personal Supplies

Of course you will need toothpaste, toiletries, eating utensils, etc. For a complete list of personal items see Steve Quayle’s list on his website.

10. Stockpile Medicines and Medical Supplies

 If you or your family has a chronic health condition, it is critical that you have 6 months to a year in medicine. Also, you should research natural alternatives to treatment for health conditions in case you are not able to meet this goal due to the inability to obtain prescriptions. Don’t forget to obtain some pain medication and antibiotics in case of unforeseen emergencies.  Make a trip to Mexico and sneak across medication in old pill bottles in order to escape detection by the Border Patrol who will ask you if you obtained medication in Mexico when you come back across the border.

If you can safely ration your existing medication doses, do so and store the excesses. Make sure you also have a first aid kit. Take a First Aid class including CPR at your local fire station. Do not forget your hygiene supplies.

Some are thinking that this is a lot of work. My response would be, how bad do you want you and your family to survive?

11. Guns and Ammunition

darpa gun behind grass Yamamoto-Japanese-AdmiralRegardless of your moral convictions, ask yourself if you want your family to survive.

Buy your guns off the books from private parties and at gun shows.

“Keep guns for show and guns for go”. In other words, have a safe location that you can bury guns so that when gun confiscation begins, you will not be left totally defenseless.

America needs to not only create safe and secure homes, but to create as many Warsaw ghettos as possible (look it up). We need to make ourselves a hard country to conquer and occupy. We cannot 
stop a treasonous leader from handing off the country to some foreign entity (e.g. the UN). However, occupation of America should be problematic for the blue-helmet wearing Russians, Chinese and other proxy forces training on our soil to occupy us.

It is recommended that you have 3 types of weapons: (1) pistols for close in fighting; (2) shotguns for defense of the entrance to your home; and, (3) a rifle with a scope in order to fight back against long-range snipers that do not want to storm your home because you appear to be prepared. Immediately, obtain weapons instruction for you and your family, firearms training and then practice!  Conduct mock raids on your residence so that you can see your vulnerabilities. An armed populace makes a people more feared by an abusive government. If I had not gun training at all, I would opt for a shotgun with regard to home defense.

Do not forget about gas masks for each member of your family and make sure to store extras. If you have the means to obtain body armor, do so now, because Congress is preparing to outlaw the private use of body armor.

 12. Obtain Night Vision Equipment

If your family is located in a fixed location, the challenges of defending your property go up exponentially at night because you cannot see
where the threat is coming from. Night vision equipment is not cheap, but your family is literally defenseless without it after the sun goes down.

13. Prepare to Survive in the Raw Elements and Build a New Culture for Your Family

It is possible that you can learn to survive in the raw elements without heating and central air conditioning. You may not have lights. Obtain flashlights, many batteries and a hand crank radio. Make sure you have clothes befitting all weather that you may encounter because a crisis that begins in January, may not be over by August.

Take a weekend and pretend the grid is down. This will allow you to see firsthand what supplies you will need. When should you perform this drill? There is no time like the present. Also, take a camping weekend where you simulate having to “bug out”.

To people with generators, congratulations on your foresight. However, if you are the only house on the block with lights, how long do you think it will be until you have unwanted visitors with bad intent?

Don’t forget about procuring non-electronic forms of entertainment. This should include board games and educational materials for your children. You will want to establish some normalcy for the sake of your children. You are preparing to adopt a new way of life. Make the new life worth living.

I would also recommend that every personal library contain The Constitution of the United States. After the chaos subsides, we will need to rebuild. You will not want to live in a “might makes right” society.

14.  Prepare Yourself Physically

If you are on the run, you may have to travel up to 20 miles per day. Get in shape, begin to walk, jog or run. The better shape you are in, the better.

Take self-defense classes. Many of these classes are offered free of charge at churches and community centers.

Practice shooting on a regular basis. If you can afford it, take gun safety and shooting lessons.

15. Do Not Tell Anyone

enemy of the state preppersIf your four adjacent neighbors broach the topic of preparedness, gauge the situation and then make an informed decision. If your neighbors are on board with preparing, that will help you form a defensive perimeter and a mutual alliance pact. Otherwise, tell nobody of your preparation plans. Do not tell your friends, family members, and co-workers. Make your preparations in cash or cashier’s checks as much as possible. Limit the paper trail to you. You do not want the government to know that you are prepared because you could be the first one on your block that is visited at 3AM. You and your mate should prepare in stealth. Kids talk and so do their friends.

Once you have your allies established, begin to trade and barter because the existing system may not be available for much longer.

16.  You Need to Become the Neighborhood Nut Because There is Safety In Numbers

conspiracy theory alert Never offer what you are doing to prepare or how far along you are with your preparations. However, you will need allies because you cannot guard your property 24/7/365.  So, how do  you recruit neighbors to become your allies without telling them what you are up to? Simple, with each neighbor that is convinced and understands what is at stake, you should feign ignorance and act as if you and your neighbor are learning prepping together. Teach your awake neighbor how to prepare. You will need allies to help protect your family and resources and it is not likely that you can do this alone.


Survival is never guaranteed, salvation is! And do not forget one of your most important resources, your Bible.


I believe that you have until January 6, 2017. When the election becomes official, one way or another, the violence will commence in earnest. There is a time to stop talking and to start doing. That time would be now. The economy is going to collapse, the only question is when. Of course if fail to prepare, this administration will be all to happy to lend you a helping hand. A helping hand right into a FEMA Camp.

Most people who use social media have figured out that Facebook and Google are in cahoots with the government. For those who are well aware of the issues, it’s high time you switched over to

  • I have a couple of ideas for fake identities with pseudonyms like “Hugh Ben Had” ,”Vic Tishious” and “I’mnot Reallyme” . If they come looking for me and knock on the door I’ll just hide behind the couch and yell out “I’m not really me and I’m not really here” . Also I’ll have to find someone to pay off my mortgage and give me some free gold and silver and have Santa Claus make my list and check it twice for me then I should be set .Of course if all else fails I guess I can just bend over and kiss my sorry ass goodbye !

  • I can tell you one thing about the left. They want you DESTROYED and you should be prepared for them. They have already started an invasion of which the first phase started in 1963 by the communist Democrap brain-tumor-ed Ted Kennedy.

    They are finishing it up with the notorious pagans – The Muslim. Who they just FORCED on you their sodomite leader – The Muslim Barry Saetoro.

  • Thanks for yet another reminder those of us without money can just kiss our butts goodbye.

    • If the majority of gun owners are like my friends there will come a time when there are many more guns than friends. Preppers and patriots are more than willing to share their supplies, but you have to get together before the SHTF. Make the effort to reach out to your neighbors now, Take the local gun nut a plate of Christmas cookies and introduce yourself. By the time you’ve had a few minutes to share your mutual concerns, I’d bet the prepper would arm you before he’d arm a total stranger. So long as he knows you understand the term “muzzle discipline” and can count on your being trustworthy, your financial problem probably won’t stand in your way. The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

        Right said, Fred.

        You should have reminded your indigent friend above, that, in the day when he REALLLLY needs a firearm…

  • US dollar and economy may collapse soon
    Civil war and new revolution may occur
    But, stratagems for obstructing is being promoted by evil beings
    Dec. 17, 2016; Renewal: Dec. 19, 2016
    According to a notice from the Creators,
    US dollar and economy being the fort of evil and corrupt tyranny due to plutocratic slave domination will collapse in Dec., 2016, right soon, which will lead to the historically biggest threat in Americans’ life, and
    the new civil war will occur.
    And new American people’s revolution will win.
    This will open the way to the worldwide people’s revolution one after the other country.
    Earthers must realize the transition to the new society of everything gratuitous services in all areas
    of their social life, as the Creators gave everything gratuitously for Earth too.
    But, already the time is too late.
    The 5 times larger planet Nibiru is approaching rapidly to Earth due to the General cleaning of Earth by the Creators, which will cause the Pole shift of Earth.
    Thereby, the US East and the South sink into the sea. At the same time of it, British islands, Japanese islands, the East and the South of China, Russian Moscow and Petersburg, etc. sink into the sea.
    Moreover, according to a notice from the Creators, the General cleaning of our cosmos is staged by the Creators. This causes diasppearance of Earth, its invaders-rulers from ancient times: the Lizard planet of reptilian humanoids and their boss, the Draco planet of draconian lizards (the official emblem of GB capital London) together with about 20,000 planets of evil and corrupt civilization.
    However, the evil beings in the Creators’ cosmo blocks control world is promoting stratagems for obstructing, which may lead to putting off to 2017 realization of projects mentioned above.

  • I wish your name was in the tittle of your articles. Then I would know not to bother opening them.

    • If you’re on the main page you can see the name of the contributor by hovering your mouse pointer over their story before clicking.

  • Lissy

    If you can’t leave the country and need antibiotics fast, go to ebay, and get “fish antibiotics”. They are made by the same companies that make human antibiotics, and you can get any kind you know works for you. I have personally used them, and they work! No prescription needed!

    • Since it was just announced that the FDA is ending sales of fish antibiotics at retail store locations by December 31st I wonder if they are also ending any internet sales of them as well . As far as I know though we can still buy regular antibiotics (for farm animals and horses) at Ranch or Farm Feed and Supply Stores . You just need to buy gel capsules and calculate and measure out the correct dosage per the amount for humane consumption .

    • many are buying rife devices…as it can rife the frequency of any antibiotic and or help one recover from any disease

  • I wonder what’s gonna happen to the elites massive cocaine and heroin importing operations? :grin:

  • No Dave…

    These things will save none…

    but will only serve to make these the first to be targeted for elimination by the ruthless poor and ruthless rich, who shall run rampant in all cities and towns and forests.

    • Go “Preach” your mumbo jumbo overly Psycho BULLSH*T “philosophy” somewhere else FOOL !!!

  • of course Bill Reilly gets it Dave…

    just as ALL the rich and privileged do…

    for is one so stupid and blind as to sea not all those given voice with long range by media, owned by the most rich, are not greedy self grubbers only seeking to keep them self afloat as the titanic of the world as civilized somewhat sinks low low low, lower than the great depression and the Holocaust all at once…

    pay heed pay heed pay heed…

    does one surmise these with lifestyyle afforded by what they say do not know and are ignorant as to how to cement their value in a time where most humans will be valued and treated with less compassion than rodents…

    and no Dave…

    just in case you actually do care about others as much as you care about cementing your own accuracy as self right…

    None of these things will save any…

    but will only serve to make these the first to be tortured and targeted for elimination by the ruthless poor and ruthless rich, who shall run rampant in all cities and towns and forests.

    • Really ?!!! Don’t count on it there Jack !!! ANY of them that make it up to my place WILL Be “Cheerfully” Cut to Pieces and Damn QUICK and I’ll just feed their sorry ass remains to my hungry dogs !!! COUNT On That !!!

      • And you sir make manifest the reason we need need the beast to take out the trash of earth whom have decided they are good people even when they actively so consciously exude intent wish to threaten to shoot, dismember and put into trash cans as dead other humans who do not agree with your hate…

        good luck in the cozy concentration camp prepared for you the violent, the evil types.

        what a nut-job loser.that deserves none of the perks that modern society affords each day, you that speak against those whom have created most all the good you have ever experienced since your measly unimportant birth on earth that you deem so important in your own mind.

        idiots come saying many are the evil but notice it never be them self, ever.

        • Go F#*K yourself you overly zealous religious FREEK of an absolute Nutjob !!!

          • ah, you poor poor terrorist.

  • US dollar and economy collapse soon.
    The new Civil war and new American people’s revolution occur and win.
    But, stratagems for obstructing is being promoted by evil beings
    in the upper rank control world of the Creators’ Space blocks control world.
    Thereby, all changes will be in 2017.
