Right Here, Right Now, Is What It’s All About – This Is Why We All Prepared
Right Here, Right Now, Is What It’s All About – This Is Why We All Prepared By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine
Most Independent Media encouraged prepping and survival for years, with some, like Steve Quayle, being so far ahead of the curve he was talking about preparing for any type of life altering, catastrophic-type event for over two decades.
Those that listened to Quayle back then, are in pretty good shape for a nation in lockdown present day. Those that listened to Independent Media are definitely not the people standing in blocks-long lines just to get into a store because they are already short on food and basic supplies.
No, those folks in those long lines are the ones that listened to the MSM who for years said preppers were crazy conspiracy theorists.
The ones panicking about masks, and protective gear are definitely the ones that listened to the liberal media who claimed no one needed them for COVID-19, and are now acting all surprised that the CDC has finally recommended people…..yes…. wear masks to help stop the spread.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reversed its stance on wearing face masks on Friday, including cloth face coverings sewn at home. Its new guideline recommends that people wear cloth coverings in public — in addition to taking measures like social distancing — as a “voluntary public health measure.”
In the CDC’s words, “CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission (emphasis theirs).”
The CDC says not to seek out medical or surgical-grade masks for yourself and to leave N95 masks to health care workers, opting instead for basic cloth or fabric coverings that can be washed and reused. The institute also stressed that its new guidelines should be followed along with earlier precautions, like self-quarantine at home, frequently and thoroughly washing your hands and practicing appropriate social distancing. Previously, the agency considered homemade face masks to be used as a last resort in hospitals and medical facilities.
A little like locking the barn door after most the animals escaped, but I guess better late than never.
Note: We’ve done plenty of articles showing how to make face masks, even anti-viral face masks (see here), and Amazon has finally got more in stock, although after the CDC recommendations, not sure how long that will last.
THIS IS WHY WE ALL PREPARED
While we in the Independent Media are not claiming we knew the COVID-19 coronavirus would be the “event,” there are dozens of possibilities and possible scenarios, the entire premise for recommending people prepare for the worst and hope for the best, was so that when something happened, be it something local, statewide, national or in the case of COVID-19, global, those reading Independent or Alternative Media would be ready and capable of surviving an extended amount of time, if need be, without the easy ability to obtain supplies.
What that specific event was going to be was never the point of preparing. The point was always survival.
There are those that will survive, and those that won’t, in any given disaster-type scenario. In this case those that contract the virus, may or may not live.
Those that continue to deny that this is a serious issue, and are screaming “HOAX” in their loudest most annoying voices while ignoring the severity of a virus that is basically putting the whole world on pause, or screeching about empty hospital waiting rooms (Duh, no group gatherings and visitation is being disallowed) while ignoring empty store shelves, will be more likely to catch the virus, spread it, and perhaps die or kill someone close to them because they didn’t have the intelligence to say “Better safe than sorry.”
