Washington D.C. government officials are flocking to doomsday camps around the country.  Which of course begs the question: what do they know that we do not?

According to the Washington Examiner, a building network of backwoods doomsday camps around the country are pulling in members from affluent areas and even Washington national security officials as the threats grow from nuclear war, an EMP (electromagnetic pulse), or virus attack.  Dubbed Fortitude Ranch, the outposts promise protection and a year’s supply of food for those unable to build their own bunker with preparations for a SHTF scenario. What’s more, until a crisis strikes, the doomsday camps are being used for prepper training and vacations.

One of Fortitude Ranch’s members from the Baltimore area said that he and others joined after “waking up” to the potential of a national crisis from an attack,financial meltdown, or political violence. “For most of us, something rattled our cages and woke us up,” he said.

“We’re seeing members from all the three letter agencies,” said Fortitude creator Drew Miller, a retired Air Force colonel, and intelligence officer, in a reference to the Central Intelligence Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigation and more.  Miller called an attack or even a weather-related electromagnetic pulse shutdown of the electric grid “inevitable,” and a driving force in his project.

Prepping has offered many a sense a freedom none of us have anymore.  No longer needing the government for anything, preppers can survive most scenarios that will leave many others begging for their slavery again and in return, for the government to give them abject poverty in exchange.

Through memberships and his own cryptocurrency called “Fortitudes,” Miller has raised about $400,000 and established a ranch in West Virginia and Colorado with 10 others planned. An open house at the West Virginia ranch is scheduled for April 21-23.

He said that for the West Virginia ranch, “most members are professional Washington area folks. They don’t have time to do this own their own.” The cost is about $1,000 per person per year to join. –Washington Examiner

“You’d have to be an idiot not to think it will happen,” said Miller, author of Rohan Nation: Reinventing America After the 2020 Collapse.” Miller also said that the camps are nearly as survivable in an attack as the Mt. Weather FEMA site near Virginia’s Shenandoah River where several Washington leaders were housed after the 9/11 attacks.

Each camp has a shooting range and is equipped to handle between 50 and 500 people during any SHTF scenario. The camps will have lodges, underground bunkers, and guard towers. In the event of a social meltdown, members will be responsible for manning those towers.

With all of the high-powered government officials signing up as members at Fortitude Ranch, it’s pretty safe to say that if you are not prepping now, you should probably start. A good reference for those just beginning to tread into the realm of prepping is the book titledThe Prepper’s Blueprint.

Hillary Clinton’s trip to India is giving us flashbacks to the blame she instituted immediately after losing a rigged election to Donald Trump in 2016.  She’s once again blaming others for the sins of the Democratic party and herself.

The infamous and corrupt Democrat made comments recently that were scapegoating at best. She blamed racism and misogyny for her loss while taking stumbles in front of the cameras, while most of the blame fell on “white men” who somehow coerced women into voting for Trump.

Back in 2016, and well into 2017, Hillary blamed anyone she could but her criminally corrupt self for losing the election, so really, this isn’t a big surprise.

During her appearance in India over the weekend, Hillary made a scene claiming she lost the 2016 presidential race in part because white women didn’t stand up to the men in their lives pressuring them to vote for Donald Trump. “We do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married, white women,” Clinton said at a conference in Mumbai, India. “And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever believes you should.”

Clinton had been asked why about 52 percent of white women voted for Trump, despite the “Access Hollywood” tape showing him using vulgar language in the days before the election. While being interviewed on stage by India Today editor-in-chief Aroon Purie, Clinton accused Trump of running a “backwards” campaign that appealed to racists and misogynists.  “I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product,” Clinton said. “So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward. And his whole campaign, ‘Make America Great Again,’ was looking backwards.”

She also claimed Trump’s message to voters was: “You know, you didn’t like black people getting rights, you don’t like women, you know, getting jobs. You don’t want, you know, to see that Indian American succeeding more than you are.”

Are women individuals or not, Hillary? Can they decide things on their own or not? You can’t have it both ways.  If women are so independent, then they made their own decision on whom to vote for.

A popular brand of dog food has been recalled after one dog died and number got sick from ingesting sodium pentobarbital. That’s one of the three drugs in a “death row” cocktail shot used to euthanize humans and pets.

According to IFL Science, several brands of dog food have been voluntarily recalled after several dogs got sick and one dog died after eating “Hunk of Beef Au Jus” dog food, according to Food Safety News. The problem is not limited to this particular brand of dog food, and the FDA has issued an alert about contamination of several different products.

The ingredient found in the dog food is a barbiturate that forms part of a three-drug cocktail used in executions, so not something you’d want to find in your dog’s meal or treats. The drug is very commonly used in the euthanasia of pets, including cats and dogs. The FDA  has issued warning signs to look out for if you had fed your pet the “Hunk of Beef Au Jus” dog food.

Pets that eat pet food containing pentobarbital can experience drowsiness, dizziness, excitement, loss of balance, nausea, nystagmus (eyes moving back and forth in a jerky manner) and inability to stand. Consuming high levels of pentobarbital can cause coma and death,” it said in a statement. “Any detection of pentobarbital in pet food is a violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act—simply put, pentobarbital should not be in pet food.”

Only about 50 percent of a cow can be sold for human consumption, according to FDA rules, for example, so the rest of the meat is used in pet foods. Slaughterhouses can send the other parts (deemed not fit even for cheap sausages) to a rendering plant, to be ground down by an industrial-sized grinder. Cows and other livestock aren’t the only things that get ground up in these plants, however. Roadkill, expired meat from grocery stores, zoo animals, diseased livestock (whole) and, even euthanized pets can all get ground up in the rendering plant.

The FDA is investigating how the drug got into the supply line, but it’s possible that it got there because it was present in high quantities in the euthanized rescue dogs that were ground up in a rendering plant, and then sent out to be used in dog food.

According to Food Safety News, the problem is not limited to this particular brand of dog food, and the FDA has issued an alert about contamination of several different products as well.

As support grew last week for a ban on killer robots during the first formal United Nations talks about imposing limits on lethal autonomous weapons systems, artificial intelligence experts and advocacy groups released a viral video depicting what a future could look like with small and affordable drones that murder targets without any meaningful human control.

“This short film is more than just speculation; it shows the results of integrating and miniaturizing technologies that we already have,” warns Stuart Russell, a computer science professor at UC Berkeley, near the end of the video.

AI’s “potential to benefit humanity is enormous, even in defense, but allowing machines to choose to kill humans will be devastating to our security and freedom. Thousands of my fellow researchers agree,” Russell continues. “But the window to act is closing fast.”

The film was created to raise support for a global ban on killer robots, which has developed out of urgent warnings from human rights organizations, advocacy groups, military leaders, lawmakers, tech experts, and engineers, including Stephen Hawking and Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

Russell and the Future of Life Institute screened the video in Geneva, Switzerland last week at an event hosted by the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots, in an effort to increase pressure on the group of governmental experts on lethal autonomous weapons systems who were gathered for a week-long meeting organized by the U.N. Convention on Conventional Weapons (CCW).

When the talks concluded Friday, representatives established a final report calling for future discussions about the mounting threat of killer robots. Campaign for Killer Robots expressed disappointment with the report, but celebrated new support for banning these types of weapons. During the talks, three countries—Brazil, Iraq, and Uganda—joined the list (pdf) of 22 nations that are demanding an outright ban.

Natural News founder/editor Mike Adams said in a recent podcast that two government agencies that shouldn’t be — the Environmental Protection Agency and the Food and Drug Administration —  are now arming up with military-style equipment such as body armor, spending tens of millions of dollars on such gear over the last few years.

OpenTheBooks.com  has been tracking this government spending on military-style equipment, revealing a frightening pattern of regulatory agencies — which should be pushing paper — now building their own PRIVATE ARMIES to be used as weapons of intimidation and coercion against the People, Adams says in a recent podcast.

“The regulatory police state has arrived! When an ‘environmental’ protection agency is building its own private army with military weapons, body armor, and assault gear, you know something has gone horribly wrong with the federal government,” he noted.

Just imagine, he points out, that now farmers can be subjected to military-style EPA raids and intimidation tactics, almost as if the government itself is engaging in state-sponsored terror against American citizens.

What’s even odder is that the FDA, too, has begun building its own military-style ‘government militia’ of armed assault teams.

“Is this part of the FDA’s continued mission to destroy natural products that compete with the profits of Big Pharma?” Adams asked, noting that most of the “militarization” of these and other federal agencies took place under the Obama administration.

The Health Ranger said that he’s been documenting for years the United States’ slow but steady progression towards a North Korea-style police state in which the central government has supreme control over all Americans, and where even state governments would be completely powerless against Washington’s power.

While the trend has certainly slowed since President Donald J. Trump was inaugurated in January, he still has a long way to go before he drains the swamp and cleans out Obama-era (and previous) federal appointees and holdovers who believe in an all-powerful federal government that dictates mandates to the people.

“How is it protecting the environment when you’re all geared up as a military assault team?” Adams said, in reference to the EPA’s SWAT-style units.

And of course, the taxpayer doesn’t get off the hook either, Adams said, quoting published sources claiming that these federal agencies were spending tens of millions of dollars to purchase SWAT-style gear and weapons.

“Forty-four federal agencies have spent over $71 million on items like body armor, riot helmets and shields, cannon launchers and police firearms and ammunition,” Adams said during his podcast, quoting one of those reports, which used the watchdog organization Open the Books as a source.

That amount is in addition to nearly $400 million spent on similar gear and weapons by legitimate federal spy and law enforcement agencies like the FBI, CIA, Secret Service and the Diplomatic Security Service, the latter of which falls under the State Department.

There are 440 federal agencies in all, by the way, proving that once an agency is created, it never goes away.

Later in his podcast, Adams noted again that “America is already a police state,” and that citizens are “living under a totalitarian regime right now.”

He also said he believes we’re living in a “food fascism police state” as well since the FDA also has armed units and can impose the agency’s will — literally at the point of a gun — anytime it wants, with no recourse for the citizens.

“They want to be able to raid your herbal manufacturing facility, and they want to make sure that you are shootable and defenseless” when they come, Adams said of the FDA, mockingly.
