What Do They Know That We Don't? DC Officials Flock To Doomsday Camps

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

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 titled The Prepper’s Blueprint.

I know why. Many others here on 0hedge also know why. It is the 99% of the sheeple who don't, and that's good - they are the target of the great culling and the more perish the better for our - the ones who know why, future. Bring it on, baby, I'm ready and eager!

Ooooo, they all are going to have guns with a shooting range, (presumably to practice their crappy aim). How many of these ,gov wunderkinde know how to raise vegetables? Anybody ever work a hoe, shovel or spade? And no, two of those are not racial epithets. 

It'll be fun to watch them starve. Just what the world needs to survive the end of the world. Government workers, beauticians and phone-sanitizers, third class.

Any_mouse - I think I always agree with you, but not so on this.

Don't forget that the facade that is our government is populated with uninquiring, unintelligent space occupiers. Even the three letter agencies have to have a quota of space occupiers to interact with the space occupiers in other agencies.

Sometimes the Stasi drink their own kool-aide until they wake up. Did you see the Lives of Others?

Okay, Theo, you stick around and watch them starve. Not me.

I have no intention of going hungry just to watch them starve.

 

You can watch the rich eat cockroach hors d'oeuvres. 

I'll exercise Article Five of my Faustian Bargain.

a) nothing loud 

b) nothing smelly

c) nothing ugly

d) nothing I would have qualms about doing myself.

e) just the March of Time and Wrinkles (until the wrinkles hurt.)

Good point. If you're Black in this country, you're already ahead of the game, because you're already living the collapsed society/ civilization dream (or nightmare).

"Prep fo' what, suckah'? We already livin' it!"

Yeah, since the modern survivalist meme was created in the '70's, you have to admit: There is a cultural divide here.

Ironic, though. When I was glued to the CBS TV miniseries Jericho, Hawkins (a brother) was my favorite character!

I know, right? Noooooo shit!

I was absolutely glued to Jericho. Yes, it was mainstream TV and could have been a little-less Hollywood, but the screenplay was written and produced by, and for us Survivalists. Even the military technical assistance was excellent. And there isn't a decent collapse theorist out who doesn't see the balkanization/secession of different parts of the U.S. (along with resource wars between towns, etc.)in the aftermath of something big.

Don't know about Firefly. Was it really good?

OK that's good... It seriously wasn't a question that was meant to be offensive... I was just trying to get an idea of the possible divide...

 

Not between whites & blacks, but really between, I guess for lack of better definition, prepper blacks, & vs. urban dindus... Same goes for whites vs. whites...

 

I imagine I'd have a lot more in common with a rural black prepper than some libtard left coast soyboy.
