Misdirect the Golden Horde

Hello everyone! Rob Raskin of Las Vegas here again, and today I’d like to talk to you about what you should do to misdirect the Golden Hode after TEOTWAWKI. This is part two of a two-part series. What is a Golden Horde? This is a mass of people who weren’t smart and prepared like we are, leaving them to roam the streets in search of YOUR BELONGINGS. First, the Gold Horde will mostly prey on the easiest targets, especially individuals and small groups and especially in the beginning. Why? They’re trying to protect themselves.


What You’ll Need to Do


Be Invisible

This is the best option. YOU DO NOT EXIST. You and your “place.” No one can see it. You might get stumbled across, but if they can’t see you from their routes, they won’t know the chance to pilfer your supplies, or harm you, is there. Invisibility might be literally being out of sight or minimizing invitation while in plain sight.



Preferably your “place” is out of sight from main and even minor routes of travel. It’s safer to be off the beaten path. The chances aren’t gone though. Don’t convince yourself you’re every safe. That fear will keep you ALIVE.


You’re not immune from problems caused by a terrible collapse of infrastructure and distribution. There will be too many unprepared for this eventuality. Stocking your “place” and growing your own crops, being as self-reliant as you can, is the way to survive.


Minimizing Unintentional Invitation

While there might be little you can do to deter a large organized horde from pillaging systematically across an area, you may be able to redirect smaller groups or individuals more easily, avoiding unintentional invitation. Again, a single person or a small group will be seeking easy opportunity. So, don’t be one.


You could try to “gray out” your “place” to make it dull and blend in or to appear useless. You could also make your “place” look threating so they’ll move along. Both have their pros and cons.

  • Blending in: For instance, you might think a place that looks abandoned could be an invitation for “lookers” who feel safe to check it out. On the other hand, the non-descript look could cause people to overlook it believe it holds no promise.
  • Threat of force: A defensible fortress will likely deter individuals and small groups. However, it most certainly signals there are supplies there. You might be opening yourself up to a more strategic attack and action from larger groups.


The Right Combination

Nothing’s going to work 100% of the time. Your SAFETY DEPENDS ON EXTREME PREPAREDNESS.

Being ”grayed out” and unremarkable is typically preferred. But you’re going to want to be backed up with a strong defensible position as well, with a solid way to DEFEND YOURSELF. Also, a backup plan to leave quickly, even just temporarily, if things get out of hand will be crucial. Have cache somewhere else to get you by in the meantime.


To Enhance Your Invisibility

  • DO NOT MAKE ANY NOISE. Keep as quiet as you can to avoid attracting attention
  • Be wary of the smells you make, food cooking, smoke, etc.
  • Smoke can also be seen from far away.
  • SOLAR PANELS, they’ll be a commodity. But try to keep them unseen from the main point of approach.
  • Keep light to a minimum at night.
  • HIDE YOUR SUPPLIES. Don’t keep them in plain sight.


Setting up a Security Patrol

You’re going to need to keep your security in mind AT ALL TIMES. Think about this:

  • Do you have enough people to do shift?
  • Get yourself a good NIGHT VISION DEVICE, it’s a game changer and force multiplier.
  • Create a plan for how to treat a threat, escaping, fighting, hiding, etc.


Are you ready to face the Golden Horde? Let me, Rob Raskin of Las Vegas, know how you plan to prepare in the comments below.

Beware the Golden Horde

Hello everyone! Rob Raskin of Las Vegas here to tell you what you need to know about the dangerous Golden Horde.


Who, or what, is the “Golden Horde?”

The prepper community uses the phrase to describe the expected swarms of chaotic and some prepared persons, groups, and “gangs” who will be wandering the streets, hunting, and even looting and pillaging for food and supplies after a major global social and infrastructural breakdown. They’ll be unburdened by the Rule of Law.


Under extreme conditions people will desperately move outward on the hunt for food, supplies, and more. Many will take advantage of a World Without Laws. It’ll be dangerous for sure.


There will be hordes of varying numbers prowling for supplies in your region. How might the Golden Horde be redirected so you don’t encounter them or be pillaged by them?


To Avoid the Golden Horde

All efforts should be made to avoid confrontation with them. Looters and angry mobs can extremely ugly and dangerous fast. If there is any chance of a Golden Horde forming in your area, no matter how large or small, you need a plan action.


Their Sizes

There will be individuals alone, small groups of just a few, and larger, more organized groups of dozens of individuals. There may even be “platoon” size units up to 30 or so. You get the idea.


As people’s supplies run out, some will forage for survival. Some will scavenge. Some will approach others for help. Still others will become extremely desperate, demanding, and forceful. Doing whatever they need to survive will make any size group a threat.


The Ruthless Element will establish their own groups, tribes, and gangs. Some of the desperate will join them to get their own “piece of the pie.” The danger will only increase.


Do you have a plan in place for how you will deal with the Golden Horde when it approaches? Let me, Rob Raskin, know in the comments!

Edible Desert Plants

Rob Raskin of Las Vegas here again, and today we’ll be looking at edible desert plants. When the supply chain fails, either due to a short-term or long-term disturbance, it’s importance to be able to be truly self-sufficient. While Las Vegas has a reputation for being a major tourist destination, it also has an abundance of natural food options for survivalists to thrive off of.  Learning about these can save your life during any bugout scenario, and just might help you survive even in less dire circumstances.

Pinion Pines

The seeds of this tree can form a nutritious meal and are a good source of fat and protein. Even better, they’re easy to harvest! Simply collect a few cones and shake the seeks out, and you could have a ready-made snack.


This majestic plant has edible roots, flowers and seeds, and can be found throughout the Las Vegas area.


The humble dandelion can be found on yards all across the Valley, but most people don’t know they’re also edible. You can eat the young leaves as part of a salad or simmer the root to create a coffee substitute.


The beans of this plant can be processed to make flour, which can be baked into cakes. They are ideal for long-term storage as well.


The berries of this tree are edible and can also be used to create alcohol, which can be vital for preservation, cleaning, and trade.


Found in more march environments, such as near the ls Vegas Wetlands, this plant’s tubers, roots, flowers and pollen are all edible.

It’s important to know which plants are good for survival, because many poisonous plants look very similar to edible ones. Eating one wrong plant can lead to adverse consequences, and the last thing you want to have during any disaster scenario is a medical emergency. Learning how to best identify and prepare wild plants for meals early on can save you from sickness and can be one more skill to add to your toolkit, and could give you the advantage you need to survive in the wild.






How People are Being Controlled by Food Supply

Greetings, folks! Rob Raskin of Las Vegas here, and today I want to talk about how our food supply is being controlled by a conglomerate of government and corporation. Unfortunately, too often these entities have liberal agendas that keep people restrained, compliant, and subservient. Henry Kissinger once said, “Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people.” Preppers beware: when the time comes to stockpile your food supply, know what you’re putting in your reserve inventory. You may just be gathering the very things that could cause you harm, not health. On top of that, it’s vital even before TEOTWAWKI hits to know what your own government is up to while it tries to control you by controlling the food supply. And here are a few ways they are doing that.



The United Nations, backed by the World Health Organization, have adopted this global “food code” by a regulated set of international standards of practice, guidelines, food production, and food safety. But this is deception. You can read more about it here, where you will discover just how it’s being pushed onto Americans and threatening our freedom and health with only money, power, and GMOs at the heart of their designs.



Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not only killing people, but they are also being pushed on us by the same government/liberal corporate consortium designed on controlling our foods. Non-GMO crops are being converted and engineered food is replacing organic food. Public outcry against GMO foods is at an all-time high, and we’re catching wind of their dirty liberal tricks. Do your best to be aware or ask a prepper what specific kinds of foods to stockpile.



Here’s another way they’re trying to get us to use GMO products. Because chemtrails cause geoengineering, they are affecting our crops. The liberal agenda wants us to believe in global warming, so they drop chemicals into the air trying to prevent it, but it winds up destroying our organic food. Certain seeds won’t grow with these chemicals, but GMO seeds will. More control by a crooked system of government and liberal baloney.


Ethanol and Other Chemicals

More global warming garbage has led to the use of ethanol, a manmade chemical compound intended for use as a “clean-burning” fuel source. But our farmland is being used to harvest ethanol, NOT crops we actually NEED. Same with xenoestrogens being put into our foods by globalist frauds, along with dangerous chemicals like barium, thorium, aluminum salts, polymer fibers, and silicon carbide.


Refuse to accept the propaganda perpetrated by government and corporations with a liberal agenda! Let’s have a discussion about what we can do to combat the destruction and control of our food supply. Let me, Rob Raskin, know what you’re thinking. Leave some comments below!

Your Barter Stockpile: Part Four

Welcome to the last in a four-part series of posts from me, Rob Raskin of Las Vegas, about perfecting your barter stockpile. You’ve started to learn more about holding onto some more “unnecessary” items like cigarettes and booze, here we’ll talk about a few last items that will be prized as post-collapse luxuries. These items will make you the King of the Barter Economy in the world after a long-term disaster. So…LET’S GET PREPPED!!



While they aren’t required for survival, these will be sought-after luxury items when you want to avoid the consequences of not using them post-collapse. We will continue to have sex following a disaster and protection from pregnancy and STDs is needed. If you’re the one with the condom stockpile for barter, you’ll be quite popular. You can get bulk options online easily. Hold on to some for yourself and keep a stockpile set aside for bartering.


Lighters and Matches

The need for these items is pretty self-explanatory, but keep in mind that like condoms and some of the other items mentioned, would most valuable for barter following a major and long-term EOTWAWKI event.  Stockpiling smaller amounts of several barter items can be the best option. Lighters can work for a while, but they’ll run dry eventually, so also get waterproof and regular easy strike matches. To ensure your matches last, put them in a tight storage container with a desiccant, like those silica gel packs that come in new shoes and the like. Next time you buy pair of sturdy boots, save the packages for your matches. You can also buy them online here.


When TEOTWAWKI happens, THE PREPARED SURVIVE! We won’t have as much time as you think. Get going on your stockpiles today. And as always, STAY PREPARED, STAY SAFE!!

Your Barter Stockpile: Part Three

Hello, Rob Raskin of Las Vegas here! You’ve been learning all about how to stock up on items that can make bartering after the inevitable collapse easier and more successful. This is part three of the series and we’ll cover a few more supplies you should definitely keep some extra of, so you can use them to get things you’re running low on. And remember, WHEN YOU’RE PREPARED, YOU’RE SAFE! This is part three of a four-part series, so be sure to check back for more!


Toilet Paper, Diapers, and Tampons

These items are always in demand especially following the aftermath of both short-term and long-term disasters. Yes, substitutions like a cloth or even leaves can be made, and that’s what makes toilet paper a luxury in this situation and preferred by nearly everyone. Tampons and pads will fit that same situation. Yes, substitutions can be made but these will be highly prized if you have them. Diapers are also highly sought-after. If you have a baby, plan to, or someone in your prepper group does, investigate cloth diapers and maybe stock up on the supplies for them as well as disposables.


Coffee, Tobacco, and Booze

Yup, we want this stuff. It’s good for morale and when we’re living post-collapse it will be that much more important. Bags of vacuum-sealed tobacco have the longest shelf life. Brewing your own alcohol will make you very popular. You can learn how to do it here(link to your article). However, it will also likely increase your odds of being robbed, so security will be crucial. Right now, there are laws about brewing your own alcohol and you’d be best sticking to them. After a major collapse however, you won’t have to worry about them.


These stockpile supplies are good for your own uses and extra can make you that much more able to barter successfully. In the last post in the series, we’ll round out the list of these necessary items.


Let me, Rob Raskin, know what items you plan to stock pile when TEOTWAWKI happens in the comments!

Your Barter Stockpile: Part Two

Rob Raskin of Las Vegas here. In the first piece, we started talking about what supplies make great barter items when a large-scale disaster strikes. Here, we’ll continue to list important items that you can use to barter for your own supplies and necessary items. Remember, when you’re PREPARED, you’re SAFE. This is part two of a four-part series, so don’t forget to check back!


Rechargeable Batteries and Solar Panels

Now, I’m not talking about large home solar panels, though setting those us is a good idea too. No, I mean is the smaller solar chargers like the USB battery charger for rechargeable AA/AAA, Ni-Mh, and Ni-Cd batteries. These kinds of things run about $25 to $75 dollars. You could also potentially arrange a charging center, where people could can bring batteries to charge and you use your solar set up to do so in exchange for goods.


First Aid Provisions

You probably know that having your own personal first-aid items like bandages and gauze are a great idea, you can also stock up on premade first-aid kits for barter. Right now, these kits cost you around $20, but post-collapse they’ll be like gold. Don’t forget about antibiotics. Infection will be the leading killer from wounds and antibiotics can be purchased now and stockpiled. Just make sure you have enough for yourself before you start trading. Additionally, medical skills, either your own or from someone in your group, will be highly prized.  You can trade your assistance for anything you need.



As mentioned above, medical skills will be in high demand. However, other skills such as carpentry, auto and shop mechanics, sewing, firearms repair, etc. will also be in high-demand and those skills can be bartered for goods as well. Stockpile a set of tools you’ll need to get the job done in the best, quickest, and SAFEST way possible. Hide these tools well, you don’t want someone stealing something you not only need yourself but can get you other supplies down the line.


Do you have a plan in place for the collapse of society? Let me, Rob Raskin, know in the comments!


Alternatives to the Dollar

Hello Survivors, Rob Raskin of Las Vegas here again to talk to you about surviving in any emergency scenario. Today we’ll be looking at alternatives to the dollar. Even if you have a safe and secure compound near fresh sources of water and fertile lands, you may need to on occasion engage in trade with the outside world. The advantages of diversifying away from the dollar are numerous, since it is unlikely that the dollar will be a commonly-accepted currency in any such situations. Taking some time now to prepare to use alternatives can put you in a much better position going forward.

What Can Be Used as a Currency?

You’ll have a wide range of options to choose from when looking for alternatives to the dollar as a currency. While anything may rise to take its place, some safe bets are the following:

  • Cigarettes
  • Fire starters (matches, lighters, flint)
  • Bullets
  • Guns
  • Seeds
  • Precious metals

This advantage to these alternative currencies is that all are easily available right now and have their ow value in today’s world. You can derive use from any of these products, while also stockpiling them for future use during an emergency. These products also last for a long time, meaning you can buy now and be prepared for an emergency even years down the road.

How Great is the Risk?

Currencies hyperinflate frequently whenever a government decides to print away it debts. With the United States’ debt approaching $21 trillion, the temptation to inflate away the debt will only grow in the coming years. Previous quantitative easing measures may yet come to have a hyperinflationary effect as the money printed off by the Federal Reserve to purchase toxic assets re-enters the economy. However, if you make the right preparations today, you’ll be able to weather any storm that comes in the future.
