James Wesley Rawles: The Coming Collapse – Prepare NOW! But if the Power Grid Goes Down, All Bets Are Off

This is my new interview with NY Times best-selling author and the editor of SurvivalBlog.com James Wesley Rawles. James is a leading voice in all things related to prepping & survival. In this exclusive interview Mr. Rawles warns that the economic collapse is coming and it probably cannot be prevented. The key to survival is being prepared. But Rawles notes, if the North American power grids go down, “all bets are off”. In the short term things may get very, very ugly – but the good news he says, is because it will be “impossible” to disarm the American people, in the long run “freedom will prevail”.

    Another great interview Sean. I wish he got into more detail on natural gas. Is natural gas part of the power grid? If so, than a standby LP generator would be a waste…might as well go with installing a stove oven that burns wood.

    • freaked Out

      George, If the grid goes down there should be a few days worth of natural gas in the system but long term you would be out.

      “Canada says maybe Europe should give up euro zone”

      OTTAWA (Reuters) – If European countries are not prepared to bail out fellow euro zone members, maybe they should just abandon the whole concept of a common currency, Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said on Monday in some of his most direct remarks on the issue.
      “This is a time of crisis in the euro zone. The whole future of the euro zone is up for grabs, and this is very important for many of the euro zone member countries, given the history of Europe in the last 100 years or so,” Flaherty told CTV television.
      “So they have to show courage. They have to do the right thing, use some of their taxpayers’ money to bail out some of the weaker members of the euro zone – or start moving away from the euro zone and just say this was an experiment that has not worked.”

    • Gary

      Yes, natural gas is part of the grid as the gas company requires electricity to run their pumps. Generator so any type may not be a good idea as in a very bad SHTF situation you do not want to be detected. Which means no noise, smoke, smells. A generator will bring people from miles away in a grid down situation with there being no noise of cars etc. For power use solar panels but protect from EMP – they are semiconductors.

      • George

        Thanks Gary and Freaked out for your input. I think using solar panels to generate power is a very good idea, but protecting 12-14 panels from EMP would be tough. Plus you would have to protect the miscellaneous electronic components that are part of the solar power system. I would think a small dumpster would be needed..lol

  • Travis

    Great stuff Sean, glad to see that you are covering more stuff concerning prepping. I look forward to more interviews like this.
    I liked and agree with JWR on his statement on making sure you have storable food and water. This does get you out of trouble until you can spend your silver.
    Glad to hear that he said you also need guns and ammunition to protect your family, food and silver. Grab a good shotgun and .22 rifle for home protection.
    I have the opinion that in a collapse the US will return to freedom (eventually) but I see a very dark future for Europe.

    • Mr Numbertaker

      Europe has been through just about every sort of crap from wars, to plagues, to famines, and everything between for thousands of years. They have always pulled through.

      The US is a mere baby in historical terms when viewed against a European time line. Unfortunately this ‘baby’ will soon be forced to grow up very quickly indeed. It will soon be time for the people of the US and Canada to be tested (the later of which somehow think they can avoid whats coming) in ways they have not seen since the Civil War and wars of independence.

      Great trials and tribulations are ahead for the American people, most likely at the hands of their own government (and the various militant agencies and private contractors they employ). Hitler and Stalin would have been impressed at the speed at which centuries old laws, international treaties, and domestic freedoms and rights, (all of which were paid for and signed with the blood of those who went before) have simply been discarded.

      The puppet Obama and his puppet masters now have the powers of a King of the Old World – the power to take anything they desire by decree – including your home, guns, food, water, silver, Wife/Husband, even your life. The NDAA and the multitude of other such acts has transformed the US into a Kingdom. Those who court the King are well rewarded (as the Lords of old), those outside the Kings favour are reduced to a peasant class – to work the fields, go on foreign adventures in far away lands to loot and pillage for he King and his Lords, or simply to ‘service’ the upper classes.

      Like a storm front coming, we can already smell what is coming in the air. In fact the s..t storm that is blowing this way already smells so bad even the sheeple can smell.

      The coming economic crisis, subsequent social collapse, and likely the blowback / divine retribution for what America has become, and for what it has done to people abroad, will hit hard in ways not yet even imagined. It will not be pretty.

      I see a very, very dark future for America.

    Hi Sean,

    I work in the City of London and picked up the free daily newspaper City AM this morning. All I can say is WOW. The editor’s letter by Allister Heath offers some remarkably honest insight into fiat currency and gold and silver. This is rare as I usually find this paper filled with mainstream “more QE” and “bailout Greece” rhetoric.

    Regards,

      Greece will get their bailout money whether or not they comply with austerity rules because the alternative is default which would take down all the banks and the triggering of credit default swaps which would take down all the banks then left standing and governments in the western economic system and damage the rest of the world.

      Greece will be given what they want until the rest of the western economic system figures out they are setting a bad example for all the rest of the Piigs + france populations who will want the same deal as greece.

      This is a can’t win situation. They can’t let them go out of the euro, but they also can’t afford to let them stay without forcing them to accept austerity. They can’t afford to keep bailing them out, but the banks have to have this bailout money or they fail. They can’t let greece get away with not conforming or the others will do the same, but they can’t let them out. Either way, it all falls down and possibly faster than we all think

    • SGT

      thanks for the link Arv, just seeing this now. Was out of pocket today. keep em coming.

  • dishesdealer417

    I always find it interesting that people who prep say they buy flour and then also pancake & biscuit mix. Pancake & biscuit batter is nothing but flour, milk, some kind of oil or fat, and baking powder. If you want to you can add an egg and a little sugar as well but you don’t have to. Whipping an egg white or two separately until it gets a lot of volume then adding it back to the pancake batter makes a much fluffier pancake but it isn’t required. Some mixes don’t even put the (dried) milk or oil in it and you have to.

    Wouldn’t it just be easier to buy a monster can of baking powder and a large amount of dried milk powder along with your flour? Then you have the basis for most quick breads including biscuits, pancakes, hush puppies, corn muffins or banana, pumpkin or zucchini bread etc etc.

    You should be buying large amounts of Baking Soda too (not the same thing as baking powder). Baking soda is good for brushing your teeth, baking with, making a light paste and using as underarm (or any other area) deodorant, it is good for acid stomach when you can’t run to the convenience store for some tums or pepcid, and it is also good for cleaning battery terminals etc.

    I just wonder if anybody bakes from scratch anymore and if that will be a good skill to have? Can you make your own pasta? Give me a sack of flour and a few other ingredients and I can be pretty happy making a large variet of stuff.

    • freaked Out

      To take it one step further, flour goes rancid quickly. Buy a grain mill and store wheat. Wheat stores for decades. Be patient it does take time to learn how to make good bread with fresh 100% whole wheat flour.

      • dishesdealer417

        I see your point, but white flour (which of course is less nutritious than whole wheat) stays good for a long time. We freeze it first then store it an oxygen deprived environment.

        I suppose a lot of things that you thinik you will need depend upon your bug out location. Mine is near a still working water mill that doesn’t require electricity to grind grain. I can anticipate that I will be able to purchase things that other areas of the country won’t have. Even in the novel “One Second After” the author envisaged that the mid-west areas would have far more food and do better. I know people with 3 acre farms next to their house and they also have their own chickens, swine and beef. Some have dairy goats as well.

    • prairieland

      I’m sure Rawles and most preppers store basic staples by the truck load. It isn’t an issue of not knowing how to cook. I’ve been cooking from scratch all my adult life. The benefit of pancake mix and other convenience food is…well…their convenience. Prepping means prepping for all situations. What if I (as chief cook) is sick and my husband has been out working all day and is tired as a dog? If he can simply add water to a mix or open a freeze dried entree well then life is good.

  • geof

    i work in the oil and gas in alberta every winter and im hearing more and more all the time of old ,non producing wells being reworked and producing like crasy , up to several hundred cubes a day . in the past with a straight ho;e the zone would be maybe eight feet . now the zone is followed for a long way ,up to a mile . i think in the past we have only been scratching the surface and now we are really starting to produce a lot of oil .
    ps, for buying emergency good i suggest buying wheat in bushel sacks . it is very cheap that way

  • eagleeye

    Sometimes it’s to uncomfortable for people to comprehend this might happen, so they block it out. Remember harricane catrina. The authorities left their citizens to fend for themselves. There was murder, rape, looting!!! Financial collapse will be hundred times worse. The army & police will be to busy protecting the elite. Those who don’t get it now!! never will. Nobody wants to see this happen, but what will happen will happen. from UK

  • Bob

    I disagree concerning much of what he spoke about. The military is alive and well outfitted across america. In my area the Army Reserve Motor Pool is full of vehicles as the staging area at our local airport. I have seen many tractor trailors leaving our airport empty,they have been prepairing for at least 2 years. All they have to do to shut this country down is block travel on main routes and guess what? No food, gas,fuel oil,nothing moves.
    Concerning buying a farm, maybe 1/10 of one percent has the funds to do that and they are already gone. I’ll bet they won’t be any better off in South America. You’ll see Nationalization worlwide except the US. obamas deal is to section out this country to his commie buddies.obama does not fear anyone in this country. He hates america and will double down to destroy her and I’m afraid he will suceed.
    Also the average US citizen is soo deep in debt that they will be happy to have a micro chip implanted in exchange for a piece of bread.The majority of americans will go to their graves praising obama! They will follow him to hell!!!!

    • dishesdealer417

      Bush was just as bad. It is part of their plan to make people think one political party is okay and the other is evil.. THEY ARE BOTH EVIL. Bush gave away the first bailout to his “commie” friends, bush started these wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, Bush and his whole family was behind 9-11 and I know because daddy bush was sitting with members of bin ladin’s family when the planes hit. That is a classic “hostage” from your camp diplomatic move to make sure that the bin ladin family members would get out of america, which they did.

      I see a lot of people here who want to blame Obama and let Bush and his whole family off the hook but they are THE SAME.

    • Gary

      Not many people have “country cousins” and are assured of reaching them Unless you leave a day before the “event”. Crystal ball? You can be a stealth prepper at home along with 4 to 8 other people for under $1,000. Yes, country will be in lock down within an hour. NO travel. You MUST be prepared to survive at home for six months. It IS possible. It’s best to already be rural in an expensive enclave but few can afford that or are willing to spend the months it will require to construct.

    • Gary

      Not many people are fortunate enough to have “country cousins” within an easy drive. Country will probably be locked down within an hour. No travel. You can be a stealth prepper at home along with 4 to 8 other people. Not difficult if you have guidance. Under $1K but $2K is better. Prepare to not leave your barricaded home for six months. STEALTH! No lights, smoke, noise, smells etc. Only leave if you MUST (ie a crazed mob headed your way). Self sustained rural IS best but also expensive, a lot of work and close to a full-time job in itself. Do it if you have the money!

    • Josh

      I second some of the points that Bob brings up. The main issue that I have with Mr. Rawles’ assertions of a collapse scenario is that he marries two dichotomous paradigms. For example, he endorses moving out into the country with ample supplies of nutrition and guns (collapse paradigm) while simultaneously stating that people should invest in US minted 90% silver coins for barter (free market paradigm). He also stated that silver is a better investment than gold due to silver’s industrial value (again, a free market paradigm). You can’t have it both ways in a complete, martial-law, apocalyptic collapse! Is 7-11 going to be open during a collapse? Is Delta Airlines going to open up an “Escape to Switzerland” flight, but will only accept payment in $1000 junk silver bags? Even if a rudimentary barter system existed, what in the bloody hell would someone do with gold or silver in a Mad Max society? Onboard the Titanic, true money was wood (ie. lifeboat), not precious metals.

      The problem with relying too heavily on “survivalist experts” is that no one has ever experienced a global economic collapse, so there will be many holes in the arguments set forth by these experts. Many such individuals have called for moving out and hunkering down (ala Discovery’s “Doomsday Bunkers”). But I highly doubt that would cause much consternation amongst the NWO military powers. “Sir, the dissidents have bought a FARM! Whatever shall we do!?…” Anyways, having A-10 Warthogs rain down 30mm death and trapping me in my (silver) cacoon is hardly a pleasant alternative to a quick and simple execution.

      The great irony is that once again, the “bailout” from financial collapse or societal collapse is an avenue only available to the privileged and the rich. Regardless of what is going on in the world, who wouldn’t want to have their own farm, with a 10 year food supply, a water filtration system, a septic system, a medical facility, a security perimeter, and a network of strong, able-bodied Christian brothers and sisters? Awesome proposals, but who can afford them?

      If the worst-case comes to pass, the only survivors would be JP Morgan and Eric Sprott and perhaps a few hardy souls. Everyone else would be dead…lovely.

      • SilverIsGoodStuff

        I disagree. Silver is a common and easily recognizable alternate currency which cannot be inflated into worthlessness, is easily portable and yet you can make change with it too.

        For example – if you really, really want to buy a milk cow one year after a collapse, the seller is definitely not going to want your paper folding money, yes, but they might also not be willing to take chickens in trade. Silver coins – especially pre-1964 American 90% silver coins – are still going to still be able to buy that cow, probably for the same going price you would have paid back in the 1950s.

        Mr. Rawles is not trying to straddle any fences there.

      I don’t care what obamas exec. orders says! I have a hard time believing gun owning ameicans are going to say to TSA or anyone sure take my car, food ,guns,wife , home etc.,etc. and stand back because obama said so!
      The average american is sick and tired of obama and his exec. orders . I now think that they are waiting for his next move. America will not back down and all the support obama thought he had will be out the window.TSA, the military etc will find out like Hitler obama destroys segments of the population and they will find out that they will be next. obama is a user his goal is to split this country up and give sections to his commie friends.

    Many different scenarios by various “experts”. Some good advice, a lot of speculation. First, if there actually is a societal collapse, there will be a power void. What organization will fill it? Does there exist an organization that believes in (1) “preparedness”, (2) has sufficient allegience from those within it to sustain order and it’s organizational structure, (3) has it’s structure been tested and proven to work, (4) has a reasonable diversification of skills sets within it to meet the emergencies one can expect from such a collapse, etc.? There is such an organization. I belong to it. The preparedness information and means with which to acquire preparedness items exceeds that of other organizations. And perhaps most critically, it has the allegience of it’s members so that organizational integrity is most likely to survive and keep functioning. Finally, that structure has been tested in real life scenarios, and has proven reliable. Further, non-members would be welcome, in case of emergencies, all they have to do is agree to live within it’s structure, they do not even have to become formal “members”. I write of LDS (Mormons). For any serious survivalist, I would strongly advise them to contact the closest Mormon bishop (every Mormon “ward” has one), ask them about their preparedness programs and facilities and if you could participate. You can tell them you do not want to talk about “their religion” just interested in preparedness and that in an emergency you would be willing to help and work with that system. You will be welcomed. I have taken many non-LDS to our LDS dry pack canneries to pack rice, beans, wheat, etc. in #10 cans, items that can store for decades. I have participated in encouraging non-LDS to participate in activites where water storage containers are obtained. This is my counsel to those that are commenting on this website.

    This is not the complete list; it was taken from the 45 Communist goals that found their way down the halls of our great Capitol back in 1963.

    3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
     
    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.” 

    (Leviticus 20:13If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.)

    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”
    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

    36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
     
    37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

    Luke 10:18And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

    The Federal Reserve is self serving and privately owned in violation to the Constitution, charging interest on illegally printed money. Money printed from nothing!
    In America On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest. With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. Five months later A UNITED STATES PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY was MURDERED BY COMMUNIST! 

    Our own US Congress voted themselves a raise. (But vetoed a raise for those on Social Security) A member of Congress only have to be in Congress one time to receive a pension that is more than $15,000 per month. And most are now equal to being millionaires plus.  If some one in the military stays  in for 20 years (providing that they are not killed in combat before that) and gets out as an E-7, they may receive a pension of $2,000 per month, and the very people who placed them in harm’s way receives a pension of $15,000 per month.

    Mention the Federal Reserve (FED) and most people, including Americans, will think that you are talking about the financial arm of the US government.

    That assumption, however, would be well off the mark.

    The Federal Reserve is in fact a private company.

    Many Americans also believe that the FED is part of their Constitution.

    UNCONSTITUTIONAL
    However, that assumption is also far from true. In fact, Article 1, Section 8 of the United States Constitution actually outlawed such an entity from ever existing -

    ‘only Congress shall have the power to create money and regulate the value thereof’.

    In stark contrast to this statement, the Federal Reserve Bank is owned and run by private individuals and international bankers.

    These international bankers have the power, through the United States Treasury, to print money by simply adding ink to worthless pieces of paper.

    What is more, they also control it’s value and even loan it to the US’ and other governments around the world, charging interest for the privilege.

    This ability affords the Federal Reserve huge amounts of power, despite the fact that their very existence violates the US Constitution.

    With that in mind is the Federal Reserve the greatest, and most overt, financial crime of all time?

    BRIEF HISTORY
    The Federal Reserve was originally begun with approximately 300 individuals and banks backing it.

    Each bought a number of shares at a cost of $100 each.

    As these shares are never publicly traded one can only wonder how much each is worth today!

    Collectively, the shareholders in the Federal Reserve make up the strongest financial cartel in history.

    Each year the Federal Reserve collects billions of dollars in interest payments alone, distributing the profit between it’s members.

    The Federal Reserve is allowed to print as much money as it chooses yet pays no interest, fees or charges to the US government.

    This ability to literally print as much money as it wants was bestowed upon the FED in 1913, despite it being quite illegal.

    MANIPULATION OF INFLATION AND INTEREST RATES

    The FED creates money and then lends it to individual, companies and governments throughout the world.

    Through the banking sector they then turn a huge profit by charging interest on these loans.

    The basic tenants of supply and demand dictate that the endless printing of new bank notes will cause inflationary pressures.

    This means that the FED could manipulate the money flow in order to drive up inflation and therefore interest rates.

    Any other organisation with that sort of power would be under constant surveillance in order to ensure that it wasn’t abusing it’s power in order to commit fraud.

    In stark contrast, the FED’s dealings are often concluded behind closed doors and with little to no supervision.

    THE FEDERAL RESERVE ACT

    Back in 1913 there had been many failed attempts to get the Federal Reserve Act through Congress.

    At this point in time the bankers elected to fund Woodrow Wilson’s attempt to gain the presidency of the United Sates, in return for his continuing support of the FED.

    Just before Christmas that year, when most other Senators were away on holidays, one Nelson Alrich managed to get the Federal Reserve Act through with little resistance.

    Nelson Aldrich, incidentally, was a grandfather to the Rockefellers.

    After his election to the Presidency Woodrow Wilson passed the Federal Reserve Act, only to later comment, “I have unwittingly ruined my country”.

    There are a great many commentators who believe that US presidential candidates are now carefully selected and funded by the FED, so that they can guarantee that every new president will be sympathetic to their cause.

    WHO ARE THE CURRENT OWNERS OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE?

    Whilst there may still be some smaller shareholders in the FED, it is believed that the Federal Reserve is owned and controlled primarily by the following Central banks -

    1.  Rothschild Bank of London
    2.  Warburg Bank of Hamburg
    3.  Chase Manhattan Bank of New York
    4.  Warburg Bank of Amsterdam
    5.  Rothschild Bank of Berlin
    6.  Lehman Brothers of New York
    7.  Lazard Brothers of Paris
    8.  Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York
    9.  Goldman Sachs of New York
    10. Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11110

    On June the 4th 1963 one brave man attempted to remedy the situation by stripping the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the government at interest.

    President John F. Kennedy signed an Executive Order – No. 11110 – that instantly gave the U.S. government the right to issue currency without going through the Federal Reserve.

    This was achieved by granting the Treasury the power ‘to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury.’

    In other words, for every ounce of silver held in the U.S. Treasury’s vault, the government could print a certain, and limited, amount of new money.

    Under Executive Order 11110, Kennedy was responsible for introducing around $4.3 billion of notes into circulation.

    CONSEQUENCES

    Executive Order 11110 could have been a hugely significant turning point in U.S. history.

    In an instant President Kennedy almost consigned the Federal Reserve Bank to oblivion.

    If  silver certificates had continued to be issued then there would soon have been a total lack of demand for Federal Reserve notes as the former were backed by silver and the latter backed by absolutely nothing at all.

    Executive Order 11110 had the potential to slash national debt as no interest would be payable.

    Eventually the government would have repaid all it owed to the Federal Reserve and at that point the Bank would have ceased to serve any kind of useful function.

    ASSASSINATION

    Just 5 months later and President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas in what many believe was a grand conspiracy.

    Could Executive Order 11110 have cost Kennedy his life?

    After all, the Executive Order has never repealed by any subsequent U.S. President and could be enacted at any time.

    Why hasn’t any President followed Kennedy’s lead in returning to a monetary system backed by silver?

    Perhaps JFK’s assassination sent out a message that was well understood by his successors?

    Your income is taxed to pay the the Federal Reserve what they charge for printing money that is illegal and unconstitutional in the first place!

    Income taxes are unconstitutional
    Originally income taxes were illegal because the Constitution required all taxes to be apportioned among the states proportional to their populations, not their incomes.
    The 16th Amendment, which permits federal income taxes, was not ratified in the same language by three fourths of the United States as required by Article V of the Constitution and is therefore invalid. The approved wording was different in different states and therefore they ratified different amendments! (“Is Income Tax Un-American and Illegal?”, July and August, 1993, pp. 14-16).
    The courts refuse to cast down the 16th Amendment even though it was not legally ratified.

    The Federal Reserve is also a monopoly–in a country where monopolies are supposed to be illegal.  The IRS deposits people’s income tax checks directly in the Federal Reserve banks–not in the united States Treasury.  Therefore, the IRS, an unconstitutional entity, is merely the collection agency for the international banksters.  Over the years the IRS has become a tool of the elite banking families to financially attack and/or imprison people who expose the Federal Reserve.  It is also a tool used by the D.C. elite to attack people who expose government corruption.
