How Will The Government Control The Enforcers? YOU Are The Only One You Can Count On To Defend Your Family

Government Control

The talk of FEMA camps and martial law has been almost nonstop for the past few years. The actions by the government have led us to the current predicament where the surreal has become the new norm. It would have been unthinkable 20 years ago to imagine we would actually be talking about the subversion and downfall of the United States with little outcry from the population in general.

Many articles have made the case that at least some of the military and police would follow orders to put the population into submission by force if necessary. This would include the forced detention and possible execution of many antigovernment protestors.

If even a small percentage of the enforcers revolted against the government orders it would provide a very large armed component that would add to the armed civilian population and would provide a serious impediment to government operations even if external forces were brought in.

In a serious event it has been noted that many enforcers would simply abandon their posts and go home to protect their families. This is an ever present problem for the government pundits giving the orders. They will want to maintain control over the enforcers at all times and must have sufficient controls in place to do so in a chaotic situation.

Word of the day: Prepare! And do it the old fashion way, like our fore-fathers did it and succeed long before us, because what lies ahead of us will require all the help we can get. Watch this video and learn the 3 skills that ensured our ancestors survival in hard times of  famine and war.

One way to maintain that control is to move the family members of those enforcers to “safe” locations where they can be protected while the enforcers do their job. These locations could be FEMA camps or secure military bases that could prevent persons from leaving once inside. This would not only provide safe harbor for those family members but would act as a control mechanism as well.

Once the government has control of those family members, they would have sufficient leverage to force compliance and obedience of the enforcers in the face of immoral and illegal orders from the leadership. This is only one possibility but it would explain why some of the FEMA camps have playground equipment.

This possibility does not preclude the eventual use of these facilities as extermination centers at some later date. In Nazi Germany the concentration camps started out as reeducation camps for dissidents before evolving into death camps.

How many police and military would disobey orders if they knew their families might be killed or imprisoned for their noncompliance? I suspect many of those enforcers would do what they were told until they were able to get their families back.

I have no information showing this might happen, I only ask myself what I would do to compel compliance of some sadistic plan to destroy this country and its people if I were in charge.

If this scenario is a possibility it would be visible at some point. The enforcers would need to give the location and names of their family members to their leadership for possible evacuation in the event of social chaos during some future event. If police and military personnel are compelled to provide this type of information at some point it may be the only signal that this type of event is about to take place. This may be the only warning these people have to remove their families from government control if events come to pass.

It may be that they are told to bring their families in for safety only after chaos has broken out. If this ever happens they need to think about the possible consequences of these actions before they comply. The government has proven itself untrustworthy in the past and that is not likely to change any time soon.

The government has shown itself to be all consumed with its own survival under any circumstance even to the detriment of the citizens it is tasked to protect. When faced with chaos in society it is safe to assume that it will do what it deems necessary to control the situation and produce their desired result. Those that can exert the most force will have the option to follow their own agenda regardless of laws or demands. Might does not equal right but it does determine who is in charge.

To maintain overwhelming force to control the population the government must control the enforcers. This will likely require using force against the enforcers when necessary to force their compliance until they are no longer needed. This is the double edged sword the enforcers must deal with when the time comes. If they allow their families to become a part of this scheme they will lose the ability to follow their own conscience when the time comes to resist.

Given the past acts of this government it is not a stretch of the imagination to think they would resort to an option like this to achieve their goals. This is just one of the potential dangers that citizens should monitor in the months to come, especially if you are an enforcer.

Here’s Why Bugging Out is More Complicated Than You Think When TSHTF


Over the next couple of weeks Lisa and I are going to dig deep into bugging out and everything that it involves. Having a good bug out plan is more complicated than you might think, and requires more than just having a full tank of gas and space in your trunk to put your bug out bag.

We already went through why you would want to bug out in the first place in this article, and the reason is pretty simple, because you might not have a choice. For most of us this is a worst case scenario because nobody wants to leave everything they have and basically become a refugee.

In that article I also added  what needs to be considered when you are doing your bug out planning such as…

  • Getting Family Together
  • Timing
  • Route Planning
  • Getting Separated
  • Avoiding Refugee Routes
  • Outside Communication
  • The Mob Mentality
  • Expect the Unexpected
  • And Be the Gray Man

Also included in the video is the process I use to plan my bug out route and some of the differences to think about if you live in an urban or suburban area vs a rural area.


Before You go Anywhere

You might hear all the time about why bugging out just makes you a refugee and leaving everything you own is just insane. The reality is that like it or not you might not have a choice.

By definition it would make you a refugee, but with proper planning it wouldn’t be the vision we have in our heads of hundreds of people lined up to cross a border or enter a FEMA camp. The reason a good bug out plan is necessary is to avoid these situations at all costs.


Let’s take a look at some of the areas that need to be considered when formulating a good bug out plan.

The Realities of Bugging Out: We are going to face a lot more problems than we expect when we bug out, and depending on your situation you will have your own challenges. Our age, our health, our family makeup, our family’s health and finances will all play a role.

Don’t fool yourself into thinking that this will be just like an extended camping trip. In reality it will be more like living like the homeless than camping.

No one really knows what this situation will look like because there are so many variables, from the degree of the disaster scenario, to your physical abilities and family makeup.

Timing: In the video I mentioned above I talked about how timing is critical. This is even more important in an urban area because your window of opportunity will be very small. Having as much information about how a situation is developing (or could develop) could give you valuable minutes to keep you one step ahead of the masses.

Planning and practice also decrease the time it would take to bug out because if you know what the process is, and you know where everything is, you won’t be running around like a chicken with your head cut off.

How Will Family Members React? We will talk about this a little more below but some preppers are the lone prepper of the household. If someone has plugged their ears anytime you mention prepping, the odds are they are going to freak out a little bit…or a lot.

Also read: World War 3: Russia Is Officially Ready And Can Destroy New York In 18 Minutes

Some people handle stress better than others, so as the lone prepper it’s up to you to figure out who is going to need more attention or help. The best case scenario would be that even though they didn’t want to hear anything about it, they did listen, and at least know the basics of bugging out.

What Obstacles Will You Face? While it’s impossible to know exactly what could put a kink in your plans thinking about the different possibility’s today will prepare you for if it does. Riots, road blocks (natural or manmade), marauders and weather could become hurdles you need to cross to get to your bug out location.

Always have a plan B, and Plan C. What would you do if a group of armed gunmen were blocking your route? What would you do if the road you planned on traveling was congested and impassible because of abandoned vehicles?


Plan on Setbacks: A well thought out game plan always looks good on paper, but rarely does it turn out that way. Murphy’s Law states “”Anything that can go wrong, will… at the worst possible moment.”

This is why it’s important to learn and think about everything we can about bugging out, even though a band of marauders might seem a little farfetched, it need to be given some consideration. As they say “failing to prepare is preparing to fail.”


Getting Unwilling Family Members to Listen?

1One of the questions I get all the time about bugging out and preparedness in general is “how do I get my family to listen?” Because everyone is different, and every relationship is different, there is no perfect answer for this.

In the podcast we talked about how to approach different people and different personalities about preparedness and the importance of not completely turning them off to the subject. I also wrote about getting your loved ones on board in the past.

Family Communications: Before, During and After

In today’s world, and as our children grow up, our families are rarely all in the same place at the same time. With the very real possibility of cell phone service being down or overloaded we need to have other means of communication.

Planning a rally point is especially important in the beginning stages of any disaster scenario because ham radio, GMRS and CB radios just don’t have the range to communicate over long distances.

These radios will come in handy on your bug out route though. For instance, if you have a group traveling in 3 separate cars you can communicate with each other if you get separated.

They will also come in handy at your bug out location. You will have people out foraging or hunting, have people out checking the perimeter, or have people out looking for supplies. Being able to communicate is important for safety reasons as well as efficiency reasons.

Practice Makes Perfect…Probably Not

As I said before, practice is crucial to your success, but don’t expect everything to go perfectly, as a matter of fact practice what you will do if your plan falls apart. Practice may not make perfect, but the more we practice bugging out, the better our chances.

Lisa and I also discussed in the podcast the challenge of practicing if you are the only one in the house who feels it’s important. This is definitely a tough situation, and even if you can’t get them to practice on a regular basis, once or twice is better than nothing.

Tin Foil Hat Time: FEMA Camps

In the tin foil hat time segment we talked about why FEMA camps could quickly get turned into detention camps and why we want to avoid them at all costs.

As preppers we have the benefit of knowing exactly how this will turn out, and while the sheeple will be piling in waiting for help to come, we will be helping ourselves.

FEMA Wants People With Disabilities to Lead the Way on Emergency Preparedness

For people with disabilities, being prepared is often one of the most fundamental skills necessary for coping with complicated medical problems or special needs. Some of us meticulously monitor our medical needs, from staying on top of medications and treatments to keeping a thorough record of symptoms and doctors’ appointments. Others navigate the challenges of environments that aren’t tailored to their differences by using interpreters or making arrangements to work in accessible buildings. The fact that our needs are not the societal standard means that we must prepare and adapt.


While most of us are professionals when it comes to handling our personal medical emergencies, we are subject to forgetting a vital element of preparedness that is overlooked by most of the population until it is often too late.

Related: How Will People React After The Crash Of The Great Reset?

Emergency preparedness, from fires and floods to natural disasters and terrorist attacks, is essential for all facets of the population.  (we recommend you to read the bestseller of the 2015 survival training book). It is particularly important for people with disabilities to make sure they have the supplies and support to manage their individual needs in an emergency situation. In recognition of the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency, in conjunction with the Ad Council, has released a special, accessible PSA to remind people with disabilities to make a plan.


The PSA shows individuals with disabilities, including a deaf family and a wheelchair user, preparing for an emergency. It focuses on four essential points: be informed, make a plan, build a kit, and get involved. In the spirit of true accessibility, they also provide an audio descriptive service, accurate captioning, and a certified deaf interpreter.

The Trigger: When This Happens You Know You’re Days Away From A Nuclear War

In a statement released by the agency, FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate recognized that the disability community leads the way in preparedness, and that this skill can serve as an model for the entire country when it comes to preparing for emergency situations: “As we celebrate a quarter century of the ADA, we look to people with disabilities as leading the way. By taking their own preparedness actions every day, they set an example for all of us, including their families and their communities.”

FEMA’s PSA is an important reminder to all of us that emergency preparedness is essential to our overall medical preparedness, as it is critical that we are able to ensure that our individual, disability-related needs are met in any situation. So, in honor of the resilient spirit of the disability community, take time today to talk with your family and support network about becoming informed, making a plan, building a kit, and getting involved in emergency preparedness today.

A 3-Day Survival Plan

Survival Plan

Within the past few years, my family and I have been inconvenienced by power outages and other problems that would have been much worse if we had not been prepared. A survival plan it’s a must for every family!

My wife  and I have traveled in a country where some residents called for violence against Americans. We have seen firsthand what happens when society takes a hit from an upheaval, both natural and man made. My son spent more than a year in a country where having a survival kit means day-to-day survival—or not.

You must have a plan to ensure you can survive those upheavals. A plan that consists of at least a three-day supply of staples and a three-day plan for personal defense is a good idea. While a bug-out bag is good to have, the wares we have in our homes are even more important.

Bugging out is one thing, but hunkering down at home is a better thing.

Let’s look at some of what is needed to survive for three days. A three-day target is good, and the basics are flexible, depending on the profile. The elderly need more medicine, and the very young may need more support gear. If you have young children or an elderly parent, you must take more time and effort with the survival plan.



We cannot live without water.

  • At least a liter a day per family member, for each day of the three-day target is minimal, and more is better.
  • If you are at home when a natural disaster is predicted, fill your tubs and sinks with water as quickly as possible in case the water supply is compromised. This gives you a considerable, cheap and readily available surplus.
  • Be certain to have a good supply of towels and wet wipes because bathing will become a luxury overnight.


  • If you have a medication, such as an anti-inflammatory for occasional use or a daily blood pressure pill, be certain the prescription is filled.
  • Do not wait until the prescription runs out to have it filled; never fall below three days’ supply. Those are day-to-day considerations.
  • For emergency use, be certain to have medicines available for treatment of insect bites, minor cuts and abrasions and burns.
  • A kit capable of handling the worst emergency, such as a gunshot wound, is important.
  • A supply of Quik-Clot is vital in any emergency.


  • Keep canned food that can be eaten cold, a means to heat food that must be warmed, energy bars and fruits, along with crackers and staple foods, on hand.
  • Consider the weight of each item and plan accordingly. Three days’ supply for each family member may be weighty, so you should begin to see why it is best to hunker down with the food supply.
  • A moving vehicle may be a target in an emergency.



  • In inclement weather, you need a good pair of shoes, boots and extra socks.
  • Have appropriate clothing clean and ready for a three-day emergency.
  • Appropriate rain gear is important, and inclement weather gear is vital because that may be the reason for the emergency.

First Aid

Basic antiseptic and pain medicine are necessities, along with…

  • Adhesive bandages
  • Gauze
  • Burn cream and other gear (which is worth an article all of its own).
  • Something for insect bites and a snake-bite kit

Do not assume a kit you purchased has what you really need.

  • Fill the kit yourself, and be familiar with what is in it.
  • Designate a family member to be in charge of what’s in the kit and how to use the each item.
  • I normally pack at least two fire-starter kits with the first aid stores. The ability to make fire may be important.
  • Additionally, a space bag with a reflective blanket is important. Those blankets are light and effective and are appreciated if the power is off. In any emergency, manmade or natural, the power grid is often compromised.


Without a portable generator, a means of heating food, such as a cook stove, is important. I think you are beginning to see that a to-go bag is a poor second to what may be kept in a home for a three-day emergency.


Keep plenty of handheld illumination in your home. It does not have to be expensive; it just has to work. It is amazing how dark it becomes without  power. City canyons are unfriendly without illumination.



Keep tools on hand for simple home repair and enough material to fix a door or window that is damaged by a storm, which includes hammers and nails.


In case you have to travel during a flood, be certain that the vehicle has a full tank of gas. It is important to fill up at the first hint of an emergency. In most cases, a vehicle has a 300-mile range without filling again, and that goes a long way toward getting out of Dodge.


If you are forced to travel, have a stash of cash to purchase staples or fuel. Shelter will not be cheap once you reach a safe zone because many others also will be there. A good reserve equal to a month’s pay may be necessary. If the chore of preparation seems onerous, consider the alternative of standing on a corner, wailing and waiting for government assistance.

That is not me and I hope it is not you.



Simple service-grade firearms are all that you need.

  • For home defense, a shotgun is the best choice, along with buckshot and slugs.
  • Wear a sidearm at all times.
  • A GLOCK pistol in a service-grade holster is a reasonable choice and is both affordable and reliable.
  • Your home defense handgun also should be your emergency sidearm. You do not need a firearm with which you are unfamiliar to use in an emergency; you need a solid handgun which you have proofed and practiced.

Battery-Operated Hand-Crank Radio

  • With the power down, a battery-operated or hand-crank radio is your only means of information.
  • Have at least a couple of inexpensive radios.
  • A weather alert radio also is a very good idea.

The Plan

Hopefully you have at least a few hours of warning before a natural disaster.

  • Gather your family, grab the supplies and hunker down.
  • Please do not be the ones in line for bread and milk at the grocery store.
  • Get the family together so you do not have to worry about driving around to collect them.
  • If the kids are away at college or camp, perhaps a mini bug-out bag with their personal medicines and special needs, such as allergy treatments, gives everyone some peace of mind.

If you live in Alaska or Florida, your bug-out bag is much different. If you live in a place like Pennsylvania, with a true four-season climate, your plan should include a little of everything for each season.

Plan ahead and prepare. The fact is that almost everyone is confronted by some type of natural emergency during their lifetime.

How you handle the problem is important and could be the difference between life and death.

Have a plan. Three days is a minimal time to invest in the future.

Important Points

  • Plan ahead.
  • Consider the different routes from work to home, to the kid’s school and other important avenues in case roads are blocked.
  • Have a plan for civil unrest, natural disasters and any unforeseen, yet possible, scenarios.
  • Consider when you should bug out and when you should hunker down at home.
  • Think ahead.
  • Make a realistic assessment of your abilities and physical conditioning.

Bugging Out with Kids

There are many philosophies on the best way to bug out. I have seen everything from underground shelters with all the comforts of home to ditching the wife and kids and heading out. I am going to assume that none of us is ditching our families. Preparing for bugging out when you have children takes extra thought and gear rather than if you are preparing as a single person.

Remember, you are not bugging to the Shangri-La. It will be tough, rugged, and primitive. The point is surviving; not dining on ice cream and sleeping on a pillow-top mattress. There was a time when mommies and daddies did not have wireless video baby monitors and $400 jogging strollers. Your children will be okay. You will be surprised at all the things you do not really need.

Bugging Out

Of course, preparing a 72-hour bug-out bag for children will be different as your kids’ ages vary. If you have an infant, you will have to carry their essentials. Elementary school-aged children will be able to carry a few things, and teenagers should be able to carry their own bug-out pack.


I think it is important to let your children know you are preparing for a potential disaster. You can do this in a calm and cool manner. The last thing you want to do is scare them. An opportune time to talk to them is when something has happened like a hurricane, tornado, or wild fires. You can explain to the children that sometimes when a natural disaster happens, you have to leave your home for a few days. This will help them understand why you are packing their bug-out bags.

Obviously, during a bug-out, your family will have to go without some of their usual comforts. Kids these days are fully unprepared for that. One way you can get them used to roughing it is by going on regular camping, hiking, rafting, or other outdoor trips. While you are out there, you can teach older children survival skills such as building a fire, filtering water, and constructing shelter. To keep the kids active and fit, kick them off the TV and get them outside! Play ball with them, take a bike ride, or go to the park. Anything to keep them moving and exercising.

Children of every age are going to need a way to stay warm, entertained, and fed. When packing your family’s food provisions, keep your children’s tastes in mind. If you have finicky eaters, try to accommodate their tastes so they will eat. Kids of all ages get grumpy and whiny when they are hungry and tired. In order to keep everyone as comfortable as possible, pack a few comfort foods such as their favorite snacks or candy. Keep plenty of children’s multi vitamins, sunscreen, and bug spray.  A first aid kid and medicine is also important for your bug-out bag. In case of separation, have ID badges (with medical information) for every child and make them wear it.

Even your teenagers may have a favorite stuffed animal, pillow, or blanket. Remember to grab their security item before you leave to bug out. Having something familiar will be comforting when things are crazy and stressful. Pack games, coloring books, cards, books, electronic games, and extra batteries to keep the kids occupied.


Infants and Babies


Bugging out with an infant provides many challenges. If you need to hoof it, how will you carry the baby? A sling or chest pack will allow you to carry your backpack, but you must remember what the total weight of your bag and the baby will be. Will you be able to sustain carrying that weight for long?

A stroller would reduce the weight you have to carry, but your hands will not be free. In addition, a stroller may not be practical depending on the terrain you have to cover.

If mom is nursing, pack back-up formula in the bag. Stress and lack of calories can impede breast milk production. If you get in a pinch, babies can eat pureed food such as fruits and vegetables. Older babies love to munch on dry cereal, so pack their favorites.

Weigh your options between cloth and disposable diapers. Disposables take up a lot of room in your bag and are messy. What will you do with the trash? If you choose cloth diapers, you will need a way to wash them properly. A mix of both might be more practical. To take up less room, you can seal disposable diapers in airtight baggies using a vacuum sealer.

Babies will also need diaper cream, medicine, teething gel, pacifiers, baby powder, and wet wipes. Wet wipes can take up precious room and dry out. An alternative would be to use flannel or another soft fabric with warm water to clean up baby.



Bugging Out

Unlike babies, toddlers will need water. Give one- to six-year olds two to four ounces of water a day from a sippy cup. One- to three-year olds will need about four cups a day and four-year olds need five cups a day. Keep in mind that toddlers need around 1,200 calories a day. They will also not be able to walk for very long. If you cannot bug out by car, you need to think of an alternative way to carry your toddler. Garden carts and wagons will not only hold your toddler, but extra gear.

School Aged

School-aged children can carry their own backpacks, however kids should not carry more than 10% of their body weight, so do not over pack their bag. For school-aged children you can give them a signal whistle, a flashlight, snacks, extra socks and underwear, a photo of the family, a personal locator beacon, and water to carry. At this age, children can learn survival skills. To better prepare them, enroll them in a scouting or Campfire Boys and Girls program. Summer camps all over the United States teach essential skills as well. Some of you have already taught your children how to shoot. If you haven’t done so, this age is perfect to start learning.


Pre-teen and Teenagers

Teens and pre-teens will be able to understand the idea of bugging-out. Include them when making your go bags. Let them pack their own and include things like their MP3 player, smart phone, notebook and pen, photos of friends, their favorite hoodie, and their favorite munchies. Remember that your older kids might be devastated that they have to leave their social life behind. Remember how sensitive they are at this age, they might become introverted, withdrawn and want some privacy.

Be very clear of your teenager’s responsibilities and include them in your plan. Will they be responsible for a younger sibling? Will it be their job to put up a tent, build a fire, or cook? What will their role be in all of this? Include them in the grown-up stuff and they will feel better. Giving them chores and responsibilities will help them take their mind off things they are leaving behind.

Older children may freak out without their texts, instant messages (IM), Facebook, and phone calls. To get them used to going without, have technology free days—not as punishment, but as family bonding time. Fishing on Sunday morning, hanging out at the park on a Saturday afternoon, hiking, camping, biking, or swimming are all technology free activities teenagers can enjoy. No electronic gadgets allowed! They can always text, call, or IM their friends when they get back home.

Make sure to pack enough water and food for your teenagers. Teenagers, especially teenage boys may need up to 3,000 calories a day, especially if you are hiking all day.

Bugging Out

Remember to revisit your children’s bug-out bags as they age and grow. Swap out their clothes, shoes, cold-weather gear, underwear, and socks so that everything will fit.

For bugging out to go as smoothly as possible, have a plan for every possible scenario you can imagine. If your children are at an age where they will understand, explain it to them. Will bugging out with little ones be challenging? Sure, but not impossible—the better prepared you are, the smoother it will go.

Do you have children? How have you accommodated for them in your preparations?
