The CIA and the US government have finally confirmed what conspiracy theorists have known for years: Area 51 is real. It exists. All the stories about invisible underground sensors and heavily armed and threatening soldiers appearing from nowhere are true.
At this point it makes less sense to argue whether or not there really were UFOs kept at Area 51 than it does to consider the implications of the revelation. Typically these types of announcements are made by the government when a grand diversion is needed, to keep people from noticing “what’s really going on.” What I’m telling you is that whatever the real story is, it’s not at Area 51. And whatever the real story is, it’s big. It’s something that no one wants citizens to notice.
Whatever the reason for the diversion is, you can bet your last dollar that it’s something you need to be prepared for. Whether there is some devastating news item buried on page 35 of the New York Times or whether the government was quickly pulling down YouTubes relating to Egypt, this type of announcement is a diversion from the real issue, pure and simple.
If you haven’t started prepping, now’s a good time. Get your 72 hour bug out bag ready. Decide whether you should generally dig in at home, or take off for unspecified nether regions. Make your list of critical documents and order certified copies of the most important, to stick in your bag. This is a critical step, because many people keep their most important documents in a safety deposit box. Those of us who evacuated for Katrina and saw a 72 hour bug out turn into a life-changing permanent event discovered the harsh reality that Xerox copies of documents don’t work. You need original, certified copies of the good stuff. Order it now.
Begin to build an emergency medication supply, a prescription at a time. Aim to have from one to three months extra medication for most conditions. You’ll need to rotate your scripts to ensure that whatever is in your emergency supply is the newest stuff. Use the older items first so that your private stock is always fresh. Use the First In, First Out principle.
Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to do three things: get your bug out (or in) bag ready, order certified copies of birth certificates, marriage and divorce papers, and the deeds to your home. Begin to build a three month supply of needed meds. And remember: every government loves a good diversion, especially this one.
