Part of prepping is making sure your home is secure now so your prep, as well as your family, is safe and secure. As your stockpile increases the threat of robbery becomes all too real. All it takes is the wrong person seeing you load up your guns for a day at the range to get a thief more than a little interested in what else you have in your home.
Instead of leaving things to chance or relying on an alarm system, check out these cheap yet effective home security tips below to keep your home safe and secure while making sure you have as much of your budget as possible to use for your prep.
1. Use Timers For Your Lights
by Mac Slavo, SHTFPlan:
Though the U.S. government’s official position is that North Korea is to blame, it’s not clear exactly who has hacked Sony and one could argue that it is nothing more than a propaganda show designed to distract the American public from more important matters like a collapsing global economy, problems in Russia or the fact that our Congress just passed a spending bill padded with all sorts of goodies for banking behemoths.
But it has nonetheless been interesting to observe.
So much so that even the President of the United States has now gotten involved. After Sony reportedly pulled ‘The Interview’ from theater distribution earlier this week in response to threats of a “9/11-style attack” from the hacking collective that calls itself the Guardians of Peace, the President said in a press conference that Sony executives made a mistake.
from The BRICS Post:
Any celebration following last week’s supposed Cuba-US rapprochement was short lived thanks to that other rogue state that has been a thorn in Washington’s side.
On December 18, North Korea successfully launched the equivalent of a thousand nuclear warheads at the US when it forced a major Hollywood studio to back down (at least in the interim) and pull a film that was to be released this Christmas season.
The Interview is a satire about two journalists recruited by the Central Intelligence Agency to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un.
by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:
Americans have an estimated 300 million privately owned hand guns and some people present this fact as the reason why no foreign power, or even our government, could ever subjugate the people. I am compelled to disagree with this notion. Once upon a time that may have been true as World War II era Japanese Admiral Yamamoto refused to invade the United States following his attack upon Pearl Harbor because there would be “an American with a gun behind every blade of grass”. However, if our government ever became abusive enough that the people felt the need to rebel, there is a new generation of super weapons being developed and deployed as I write these words, which would doom any rebellion that did not have the full support of the military.
The new generation of super weapons has made America vulnerable to enemies, both foreign and domestic. As a result, the window to resist martial law occupation and even an invasion is virtually closed.
by Jason Simpkins, Outsider Club:
Russia is in dire straits.
We all know that at this point. The collapse of its currency, the ruble, dominated the news cycle earlier this week. And to be honest, it was hard not to enjoy it.
After all, this is what Vladimir Putin has been asking for.
Despite all of his denials and propaganda, Russia invaded Ukraine and took Crimea.
For months now, Putin has thumbed his nose at the West, scoffing at sanctions, ignoring ceasefires, playing up his ties with China, and brandishing his country’s nuclear arsenal. He sent warships to Australia, fighter jets to the Caribbean, and submarines to Sweden.
Surely, the punchline is that even a tiny backwater, dictatorship can now make fun of US “moral high ground” courtesy of the recent CIA torture disclosure. “We have a way to prove that we have nothing to do with the case without resorting to torture, as what the C.I.A. does,” the North Korea statement said. Oops.

Oil prices have fallen by half since late June. This is a significant development for the oil industry and for the global economy, though no one knows exactly how either the industry or the economy will respond in the long run. Since it’s almost the end of the year, perhaps this is a good time to stop and ask: (1) Why is this happening? (2) Who wins and who loses over the short term?, and (3) What will be the impacts on oil production in 2015?
1. Why is this happening?: Euan Mearns does a good job of explaining the oil price crash here. Briefly, demand for oil is softening (notably in China, Japan, and Europe) because economic growth is faltering. Meanwhile, the US is importing less petroleum because domestic supplies are increasing—almost entirely due to the frantic pace of drilling in “tight” oil fields in North Dakota and Texas…
by Ellen Brown, Web of Debt:
The sudden dramatic collapse in the price of oil appears to be an act of geopolitical warfare against Russia. The result could be trillions of dollars in oil derivative losses; and the FDIC could be liable, following repeal of key portions of the Dodd-Frank Act last weekend.
Senator Elizabeth Warren charged Citigroup last week with “holding government funding hostage to ram through its government bailout provision.” At issue was a section in the omnibus budget bill repealing the Lincoln Amendment to the Dodd-Frank Act, which protected depositor funds by requiring the largest banks to push out a portion of their derivatives business into non-FDIC-insured subsidiaries.
Hey government and mainstream, lapdog establishment media: I thought we were supposed to be afraid of ISIS… Now it’s North Korea?
What a ridiculous reality we live in.
Right now the mainstream media is flooding the news cycle with story after story trying to rile people up about how the FBI has officially blamed North Korea for the Sony hack which led to the company canceling its scheduled release of the upcoming Seth Rogan movie “The Interview,” ostensibly to avoid terror attacks at theaters.
Amid the twinkling of the Christmas lights and the shimmering glow emanating from the garland strung over the light posts across America, the captured corporate media is busily reassuring people that our economy is getting stronger, our country is moving forward in all important areas, and overall, the United States is better off today than at any other time in the recent past. Lies – all.
The lies are strong enough, large enough, and repeated often enough to convince the majority of a mind-numbed public that what they are seeing strung across the lampposts and Christmas trees in city squares is traditional holiday garland. Aided by normalcy bias, greed, and other psychological controls implemented at the hands of the global elite, most walk past the fully adorned Christmas trees at Rockefeller Center in New York and numerous city parks in the U.S., seeing garland hanging from the trees, exactly like they’ve been told. Having choosen to ignore the cries of the watchmen or having become fully entranced in the lie, what they’ve been convinced is the holiday decoration is neither decorative nor whimsical, but dull and taut. For what adorns the trees is not garland at all, but the thick and deadly rope hanging like swags, ignored by the masses while taunting the informed. Few see that at the end of each strand of rope is a hangman’s noose, ritualistically coiled thirteen times and awaiting the victims of the illusion. Join Steve Quayle and Greg Evensen as they unravel the coil of the hangman’s noose.
