Hello faithandsurvial readers. I have spent some time over the past two weeks asking God for direction on what I should focus on for 2012. I understand for non-believers that statement is enough to have you stop reading, which is fine. For believers you could not find a more direct and realistic first sentence.
As I look at 2012 I needed to do some reflecting over the past 14 months of blogging. It begins with many thanks to all the readers, and those that call me a friend either on facebook or those that know me locally here in Pleasanton CA. In terms of numbers I wrote 185 articles focusing on what I thought needed to be said. Topics of economic collapse, inflation, and resistance to the rise of tyranny were the focus in the start of the year. As my research and writing skills improved, (still far from perfect), I started to focus more on preparation, training, and research documents focused on FEMA camps, one world government, and the banker controlled fiat money system that has enslaved all Americans except for the politicians, and billionaire few.
The monthly traffic to the website increased every month except for one month when I took a little time off. December 2011 saw a month of amazing website views, including one article titled, “FEMA camps gearing up”, which to date has had over one million views. The website has been “mysteriously attacked”, and successfully brought down one time for 14 hours. I thank my server provider for diligently working to stop many other attacks from “un-known” ISP’s that continue to attempt to stop the dissemination of truthful information. As of the end of the year faithandsurvival has received close to 2.5 million hits, a number that is beyond astonishing to me, and nothing of what I ever thought would happen considering zero dollars have been spent on marketing, no books have been written, and the only form of spreading the message has been word of mouth locally and on facebook.
Locally I spent the first half of the year attending city council meetings. I spent meeting after meeting using my “three minutes” to speak the truth of what I wrote about. My training schedule of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu ended those speeches as I decided it more important to improve my personal self defense skills, and have full plans on continuing the training. I also spent the first half of 2011 building a local team to help prepare and educate on the collapse of America. That local team ended in July and was disbursed, as I focused more time on web site articles and my own training on survival skills.
One of the greatest awakenings within myself over 2011 is the true depth of corruption within our local churches. As I began faithandsurvival not only was I dedicated to writing articles on this website, but to speak at local churches as a subject matter expert on survival skills and discussions of the rise tyranny within our country and to prepare others and their families on how to resist it. Church pastor after church pastor basically looked at me as the devil when I approached them with this “mission”. All of them stated it was “too political” and they could not allow me to do this. In fact in conversations with some I was told time and time again things in America are great and they saw no need to prepare for anything, (not my interpretation of the bible).
From those rejections I was able to research the truth as to why the churches would NEVER let me speak, because I uncovered facts, the truth as to how our churches are enslaved to money through THE FEDERAL Government by their acceptance of the 501(C)-3 tax exempt status, and the depositing of millions upon millions of dollars from our federal government as they accepted training from homeland security on how to “preach to your congregation during emergencies, and to spy on the congregation to report to homeland security those within the church walls that are potential terrorists.”
I would say without a doubt the greatest challenge I faced in 2011 was how to present the facts and truth on the fall of America in a positive way. It is downright depressing for me and others that choose to have their eyes open and read the facts of the evil that has destroyed liberty in this country. Sometimes I would research an article and say to myself “I have to take a few days off from this”, but then my mind would just not let it go, and I would find myself researching and writing more and more until finally I would just go camp or disappear for a few days to regroup my brain and connection with God.
Another difficult aspect for the year is watching the 100% corrupt main stream media lie, manipulate, and brainwash the majority of the population over and over again, and how effective they have become at it. Wolves in sheep clothing such as Bill O’reily, Hannity, Limbuagh, were now seen clearly by me, when before I considered their analysis good. When you see the depth of the problems and try to discuss them with people, they will continually say it is not that bad and quote information from the likes of USA today, or CNN as their fact source. No matter how much you show them how they are reporting lies to them and provide them true facts, they just believe the main stream media, and with good reason, because they have been trained to do this since they were children. It is very hard to accept what has happened to our country, and 95% of the population today still does not want to.
It is very problematic for me to want to make plans for 2012. To start with as I enter my fifth year of sobriety I have learned it important to live one day at a time. That motto has done me very well. However it is good for me to have a “high level” plan in which I can see where faithandsurvival should head.
At the 30,000 foot level I am to focus more on “solutions and deeper research of focused topics”. It seems I have done what I was to do in “ringing the bell, and trying to wake people up”. I need to spend more time “in the field”, gathering on the ground facts, pictures, and research rather than spending so much time utilizing the internet for facts. At the 15,000 foot level this means spending time visiting parks, remote cities, lakes, and other areas of California that could be used as survival locations as the collapse continues to happen in our country and to live in for months, years, or even a decade as the federal government declares martial law, civil war, and world war breaks out.
To do this I have purchased a travel trailer which I am finalizing the towing package set up for my van and should have it ready to travel next week. I plan on scouting, exploring and spending time providing you actionable articles that can be printed out and kept in your emergency kits or survival vests. I will also then be incorporating this into a book, which will either run separate or I will incorporate with a current book that I have in outline form.
At the 5,000 foot level I plan on being the best Christian I can be, by continuing to be of service to man to the best of my ability and do God’s will on a daily basis.
Again I can not thank you all enough for all your comments, feedback, and friendship in 2011, and all I can say for in 2012 is what I have been reporting, we are in for a year like NONE other you have ever experienced in your life!
