Prepper News Watch

Gold – The big economic story over the weekend was the dramatic drop in the price of gold. You’re going to see a lot of opinions on this, but here’s my take: Don’t worry about it. Gold isn’t going away as a form of real money, and the only time you need to worry about the price of it is when you either buy, sell or trade with it. Otherwise, don’t get caught up in this noise about the price of gold. Much like everything else in the global economy, it’s being manipulated. You should be looking at it as an opportunity to buy some more at a lower price.

North Korea – Many people wrongly assume that North Korea can’t hit the US. All that is needed to destroy the United States is a single nuclear detonation 300 miles over the center of the country. That creates enough EMP to take down the power grid and destroy electronics across the country. NKorea has a recently launched satellite with an unknown payload that crosses the US twice a day. Additionally, they could launch a ballistic missile over the south pole and detonate it when it reaches the US. These are all too real scenarios that can happen far easier than most people believe.
