1 New Walking Dead Spinoff Detail Secretly Teases Tyreese’s Return https://combatarmsblog.com/1-new-walking-dead-spinoff-detail-secretly-teases-tyreeses-return/ Wed, 03 Aug 2022 17:10:00 +0000 https://combatarmsblog.com/1-new-walking-dead-spinoff-detail-secretly-teases-tyreeses-return/ A detail from an upcoming episode of Tales of the Walking Dead might have already secretly revealed the return of a long-lost TWD character.

A detail from an upcoming episode of Tales of the Walking Dead might have already secretly revealed the return of a long-lost TWD character.

New episode details for Tales of the Living Dead could secretly tease the return of Tyrese Williams. Announced in October 2021, The Walking DeadThe latest spinoff will take the form of an anthology series, introducing new characters and stories to the franchise. Brief synopses of all six episodes have been released, which reveal some exciting new details about the upcoming series, including perhaps a teaser from a fan’s favorite character. The Walking Dead could make a comeback.

While the main series of The Walking Dead may end with season 11, several spin-offs have been confirmed to continue the series’ legacy and further develop the established characters. Tales of the Living Deadhowever, promises six unique episodes that delve deeper into the world inhabited by walkers and cover the whole TWD timeline, from the very beginning of the apocalypse to potentially decades into the future. The series will be heavily focused on introducing new voices to the world of The Walking Deadwith the exception of Samantha Morton’s Dee/Alpha, who is the only confirmed character to reprise her role from the main series.

Despite the reveal of Alpha’s return, many wonder if other characters from TWD will cross into Tales of the Living Dead. A small teaser in the synopsis of episode 1 could suggest that Tyreese Williams and his sister, Sasha, could make an appearance in the spin-off. Although these characters have not been seen since The Walking Dead seasons 5 and 10 respectively, Tales of the Living Dead provides the perfect opportunity for them to make a comeback.

Will Tyreese and Sasha appear in Tales Of The Walking Dead?


The Walking Dead Tyreese and Sasha Williams

Played by Threadby Chad L. Coleman and Star Trek: DiscoverySonequa Martin-Green, Tyreese and Sasha Williams were featured in The Walking Dead season 3, episode 8. Originally shunned by Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), the couple joined the group in the season 3 finale and became important members of the community. Unfortunately, neither of them managed to The Walking Dead final season, with Tyreese taken down by a walker bite and Sasha sacrificing herself in an effort to kill Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s sinister Negan.


Now, however, the pair has a chance to get back in Tales of the Living Dead. Episode 1 Synopsis Suggests Terry Crews Is Set To Represent a reclusive preparer [who] abandons his bunker in search of a preparatory woman from his past.” Attentive viewers will recall that prior to their introduction to Rick’s group at the prison, Tyreese and Sasha spent seven months hunkered down in their neighbor’s bunker before running out of supplies. Although their neighbor is called “Jerry” and Crews plays a character called “Joe”, it’s still possible that these characters are identical.


It has already been confirmed that the characters of The Walking Dead can fit in Tales of the Living Dead, and there’s a slew of character stories that audiences haven’t been shown in full. It would make sense for there to be subtle connections between the spinoff and the main show so that the former doesn’t feel so disconnected. Having Tyreese and Sasha make appearances in Tales of the Living Dead will help immediately cement the series into the larger universe, while expanding on stories viewers are already familiar with.

The American economy could “collapse” following a debt crisis; Bitcoin and crypto can help rebuild afterwards – Max Borders https://combatarmsblog.com/the-american-economy-could-collapse-following-a-debt-crisis-bitcoin-and-crypto-can-help-rebuild-afterwards-max-borders/ Mon, 01 Aug 2022 17:26:00 +0000 https://combatarmsblog.com/the-american-economy-could-collapse-following-a-debt-crisis-bitcoin-and-crypto-can-help-rebuild-afterwards-max-borders/ (Kitco News) – According to the St. Louis Federal Reserve, the US debt-to-GDP ratio is 125%.

(Kitco News) – According to the St. Louis Federal Reserve, the US debt-to-GDP ratio is 125%. Research by economists Ken Rogoff and Carmen Reinhart suggests that a debt-to-GDP ratio above 90% slows economic growth and can trigger a public debt crisis.

Max Borders, executive director of Social Evolution, worries more. Speaking to Michelle Makori, presenter and producer at Kitco News, he said the US economy could experience a total “collapse” due to its unsustainable level of debt.

He said preppers, people who prepare for extreme collapse by stockpiling food, guns and other essential supplies, are admirable.

“I’m starting to look up to preppers more and more every day,” he told Makori at the FreedomFest 2022 conference in Las Vegas. “The only thing I see that portends a terrible situation is that the world’s biggest debt economic powerhouse is standing in [125 percent] of GDP.”

Riots in the streets

Referring to recent events in Sri Lanka, in which food and fuel shortages led to civil unrest, Borders said he foresees a similar fate for the United States.

“That’s the kind of thing that worries me, and it doesn’t have to be the whole population,” he explained. “That could be a big enough subset to make it very serious for all of us.”

Borders is skeptical of the ability of fiscal and monetary policy to solve problems, saying the economy is a complex ecosystem. He compared economic policy to “[sticking] your hand in the Amazon rainforest or the Great Barrier Reef, and [trying to] run these complex systems… you cannot run, fix or design a complex system.”

He added that American citizens have come to expect handouts when the economy turns sour, which means the US debt burden is unlikely to be reduced.

He said: “The austerity measures have worked, but what is the political incentive? When everyone is crying over petrol prices, they want some form of stimulus. They want something like what ‘they got it during COVID, and they expect it. The political class is going to give them that.’




Bitcoin as a solution?

After the collapse of the United States, Borders is optimistic about building a better system.

“We can rebuild institutions that work better,” he said. “[Bitcoin] was a response to the problems of 2008 and 2009 that were sewn up by the government and people who were excessively greedy… [Back then]we saw the advent of the Bitcoin white paper that Satoshi Nakomoto published.”

Because Bitcoin is decentralized, Borders claimed that people can use it to “withdraw” dollars and “anything denominated in dollar assets.” He also called Bitcoin “the strongest money in the world”.

“I’m not a bitcoin maximalist…but I have a very strong appreciation for bitcoin,” he said. “Its strength makes it the center of any good portfolio, but cryptocurrencies have other properties and these are continually evolving into a larger ecosystem of value.”

For Borders’ perspective on gold and the gold standard, watch the video above.

Who said the end of the world wouldn’t be all fun and games?

Two weeks after it released a bizarre public service announcement about what to do if a nuke lands on Gotham — offered little advice beyond “get in” and “stay in” — the city of New York The emergency management agency tweeted what to pack in a ‘travel bag’ in the event of a mass evacuation.

The tweet featured a cartoon of children’s backpacks filled with homework, toys, and Nintendo Switch and Game Boy consoles. A puzzle, a teddy bear, a rubber ducky, video game controllers, rulers and a scarf were also featured.

The post links to the Emergency Management webpage with a list of bug out bag essentials, including food, water, first aid kits and copies of personal documents.

But the fallout from the cartoonish advice came quickly after Tuesday’s tweet.

“This is just a friendly reminder not to forget your game consoles in case of an emergency. You’ll need something to do until nuclear winter passes,” one Reddit user said.

City Emergency Management tweeted a list of recommended items for “A Go Bag” in the event of an evacuation.

“Not enough room for my Funko Pops or Lego sets,” another user joked.

Anna Bounds, a sociology professor at Queens College with an expertise on the urban “Prepper” subculture, said there was a jarring disconnect between the tweet’s intent and the cartoon, describing it as cavalier.

“It’s not as bad as it should be,” she said. “It acts as a reminder to bring some of your kids’ favorite things, but electronics won’t last you very long. The image looks like a clip art for a back to school post – a real misfit.

Jason Charles, a retired FDNY firefighter and head of New York’s Prepper’s Network, said the cartoon was laughable and irresponsible.

“The emergency management team, I would say they’re not the sharpest tools in the hangar,” he told the Post. “You don’t want your bag bogged down with shit. And if your kids are old enough, you’re not going to put teddy bears, dolls, and video games in there. You will fill it with food, water, their shelter and a sleeping bag. You want them to be in charge in an emergency.

Charles, who was featured on National Geographic’s “Doomsday Preppers,” shared his go-to bag with The Post – a GORUCK-branded tactical backpack loaded with freeze-dried food, a sleeping bag, knives, canteens, small pots, a rope, a headlamp and a combustion kit to start fires.

He said there was no need for New Yorkers to hide and cover just yet and that the bizarre timing of the go-bag message so soon after the PSA nuclear attack was a lazy coincidence on the part of emergency management.

“There is no connection between the two,” Charles said. “This office just has a budget they have to spend, so you’ll see them telling people about hurricanes in January and it won’t make sense.”

Emergency Management said the Tweet was part of its Ready New York education program and the upcoming National Preparedness Month in September. They said they would send bags to prepare people for various emergencies, including fires, power outages, blizzards and major floods.

Jason Charles suggests the city's emergency management agency should spend taxpayer dollars more wisely.

Ffrom something as simple as adding a spoonful to your tea, glaze potatoes to make honey bites in your air fryer, the dishes to be embellished with a dash of this natural nectar are not lacking. But the usefulness of honey extends beyond cooking: A handful of studies have found honey to be a useful tool in skin care, food preservationand even wound dressing. So before you consider throwing away an unused jar, check if you can use it for something other than making some Brussels sprouts killer.

Hair care. When applied to your hair and scalp, honey is able to provide skin regenerating properties to the scalp skin. According to the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology“in cosmetic formulations, [honey] exerts emollient, humectant, soothing and conditioning effects on the hair, maintains youthful skin and delays the formation of wrinkles, regulates the pH and prevents pathogenic infections. Beauty writer Caitlin Duggan recommends using this treatment no more than once a week and pairing it with coconut or other carrier oils.

Make a lip balm. A little honey will go a long way with your lips. According to skin care professional Ildi Pekar, honey has moisturizing and soothing effects that can hydrate the skin, leaving it soft and glowing. There is no shortage of DIY honey lip balm recipes to discover, if you find yourself interested in trying.

The healing of wounds. Don’t underestimate the power of your pantry sweetener. According to a 2015 study by the Wound Care Learning Network, honey is an effective wound healer. He writes: “the physical properties of honey speed up the healing process: IIts acidity increases the release of oxygen from hemoglobin, thus making the wound environment less favorable for the activity of destructive proteases, and the high osmolarity of honey draws fluid out of the wound bed to create a discharge of lymph as occurs with negative pressure wound therapy. ”

Use it in the bath. Put away the Epsom salt it and head to the kitchen instead. Professional esthetician Jordana Miattoli told Bustle that honey has beneficial effects on the skin thanks to its amino acids and antioxidants. By dissolving a cup of honey in warm water before adding it to your bath, you can emerge from your relaxing activity with beautiful, smooth skin.

Make mead. If you’re looking for a buzz and don’t mind the wait, consider making mead. Honey, along with water and yeast, are the basic ingredients of mead, a dessert wine that takes anywhere from three weeks to six months to ferment, depending on how strong you want it to be. If you’re interested in making mead but don’t know where to start, we have a guide to getting started

Preparing for the apocalypse. So technically this one involves eating honey, but (ideally) not for a while. Honey is an ideal food for any Doomsday prep simply because it doesn’t expire. According to Science Focus, the low water content of honey and its high acidity are the two main reasons why it does not spoil. This is because the bacteria responsible for food spoilage cannot grow under these conditions. For this reason, honey is a great choice for locking yourself into your apocalypse. bunker. Just make sure it’s not for nothing knowing exactly what you are supposed to do if a nuclear missile hits your city.

After several years away due to the COVID-19 pandemic, San Diego Comic-Con is back in full swing. The convention has become host to a wide range of movies, TV shows, and more. The Walking Dead is certainly among them. The fan-favorite AMC franchise returned to Hall H to much fanfare, not only giving the first look at the upcoming Tales of the Living Dead anthology series, but celebrating the final season of The Walking Dead. Keep reading for our rundown of everything you need to know about The Walking Dead universe panel!

Chris Hardwick moderates the panel and presents Tales of the Living Dead, the new anthology series. They play a trailer – it features Terry Crews as a doomsday prepper, Parker Posey as an aloof suburban woman, and more.

Hardwick features Scott Gimple, Channing Powell, Michael Satrazemis, Terry Crews, Danny Ramirez and Samantha Morton. Crews almost immediately rips his shirt off and flexes his muscles.

Gimple says the show grew out of questions fans were asking about the show and says they wanted to evolve and invent the mythos. They had considered making it a series of specials, but it worked better as an anthology. Gimple teases that it’s rooted in larger-than-life stories and characters people can latch onto. Powell reveals that she was excited to tap into things she hadn’t seen on the show before and push the boundaries. She teases some of the ideas are very crazy and offbeat.

Satrazemis was excited about the idea of ​​bringing new people and new concepts into the universe, calling it a “dream”. He teases that there’s still more the universe can still do. Crews expresses how thrilled he was to join the franchise and the realm of horror, and was inspired by night of the living dead. He praises Munn and reveals that it was the first time they had worked together since The press room.

Ramirez revealed that he was briefly a voice for Javier in the Walking Dead video game, before the character aged. He says the universe tells “a beautiful little story” against a horrific, massive backdrop. Morton talks about reprising his role as Alpha in what is essentially a prequel episode. Morton says she was “so disgusted” when Alpha passed away and was “beyond thrilled” to be back. She wanted to know what made Alpha who she was. She says the Season 9 flashbacks were from Lydia’s perspective, so they might not be truthful.

It’s time for questions from the public. Crews reveals he’s had nightmares about zombies, especially around the pandemic. Powell teases that in addition to Alpha’s return, they’ve added something that mythology fans will recognize. Morton is asked if she would like to do an Alpha spin-off and accepts. Hardwick jokes that it happens. Crews’ son asks how anyone would survive a true apocalypse. Ramirez says he would have a survival kit. The crews argue that it’s the humans betraying themselves that would be the real threat. Crews says his favorite character was Tyrese. Crews praises Morton for such a terrifying character and also shouts out to the fans. Powell hopes they can keep new and old fans happy. Satrazemis sheds light on the experience working on the series and thanks fans. He and Morton then kiss,

The Tales team takes a group photo. Hardwick reveals that the cast of Fear is about to begin production on a new season and releases a video of Lennie James wishing the audience well.

Hardwick talks about his own journey with the show and thanks fans for it. He argues that it’s rare for a show to last that long. A trailer for the final episodes airs and Hardwick introduces the panelists – Gimple, Angela Kang, Greg Nicotero, Melissa McBride, Josh McDermitt, Ross Marquand, Seth Gilliam, Lauren Ridloff, Cailee Flemming, Michael James Shaw and Norman Reedus.

Gimple confirms the final season premiere date and also reveals that a fan event will be taking place on the West Coast on November 20, with more details to be revealed later.

Kang teases that the final season sees the characters clashing with the Commonwealth, and there are plenty of twists. She says the series balances the spirit of Robert Kirkman’s writing in the comics, but charts its own course. Nicotero says filming the final episodes was “no joke,” but they felt obligated to the fans to stick the landing.

Reedus is about to start crying and calls the start of the series a “pure thing”. He jokes that he wants to cry and hug with everyone in the room – but will wait until after COVID. McBride chokes up talking about the show, and fans cheer her on and tell her they love her. She says she is “so grateful”. McDermitt is asked about his blonde hair and argues that it was actually comic clarification for Eugene. He remembers the crotch scene and when Eugene threw up on Rosita. Marquand talks about being a fan first, then joining the family, and says it’s going to be weird when the show is over. Gilliam calls the experience “surreal” and praises the engagement and love fans have had for the show. He says he couldn’t have imagined his story going where it was, but in a good way. He says his favorite quality about Gabriel is his courage, as he overcame every situation thrown at him.

Ridloff talks about going from a kindergarten teacher to working on the show and says her class just got so much bigger. She says the show is a mirror of society. She says she still can’t accept being an action star. She says the show was created for the fans and the cast and crew care so much about them. Flemming thanks fans for their love and support. She says going to work and playing with swords is great fun. She talks about Judith growing up entirely in the apocalypse and laments that she probably never had an ice cream cone. Shaw says he never imagined himself stepping into character, but it was a joy to play. He talks about his first day on set, where he got very cold in a warehouse, and his last day on set, where they watched the sun come up. Nicotero reveals that they sometimes use conditioner to grease walkers’ hair so it smells good.

It’s time for questions from the fans. Fan asks “Sith or Jedi” – Reedus and Flemming say Jedi. Marquand slips into a Star Wars print.

A fan asks about the closing party, which Gimple said was “lovely” even though a lot of people were crying. The post-production team had also put together a one-second edit of each episode, which they hope to release after the show ends. A fan asks about a movie, which Hardwick says they’ll see later. Another fan asks about Rick’s story closure – which they’ll also talk about later.

A fan asks about the last days of filming, Marquand talks about when the confetti cannons went off after the series ended. Nicotero reveals that the last episode lasted for fifteen days and different actors took place all these days. Gilliam says the actors often showed up to watch other actors wrap up. Ridloff reveals that she packed up at 2 a.m. and was overwhelmed and exhausted. A fan asks about Reedus’ on-set pranks with Andrew Lincoln, and he says he doesn’t think he pranked anyone else because Lincoln was an “easy target.”

A fan asks if anyone has any theories about the origin of the zombie apocalypse, and Gimple argues that part of the beauty of the comic was that there was no straight answer. Reedus jokes about Fabio being hit by the goose on a roller coaster, and Gimple jokes about the new theory.

A fan asks about Daryl and Carol or Daryl and Connie, and Reedus jokes that there is a world where the three of them are happy together. He also says Daryl and Carol’s story isn’t over.

McBride talks about the fun of being able to play so many different versions of Carol, including Commonwealth. A fan asks about playing characters that weren’t in the comics. Reedus talks about filming his very first scene and running around with the idea of ​​having a chip on his shoulder. He also says it was liberating not to be in the comics,

A fan asks what his favorite scenes are and what he will miss. Shaw says it hasn’t aired yet. Flemming says it was his first kill of Walker. Ridloff says it was with Daryl and Dog. Gilliam says the episode “one more” with Ross and Robert Patrick. Gilliam says he will miss singing in his trailer and teasing his bandmates. Marquand and Gilliam sing a little David Bowie. Marquand says the composition with Negan. McDermitt says it hasn’t aired yet, but it used to be the lineup because he loved seeing Michael Cudlitz die.

McBride says the very first episode with Morgan putting his wife down and Scott Wilson with his bible in the jail. Reedus recounts the scene where he ran into Carol’s arms. Reedus says he will miss the crew and being in Georgia. Nicotero says filming on location made the experience so different, and his favorite scene was the hollow when Carol goes to Terminus. He says that in his head, the show isn’t over yet, and asks for a round of applause for the actors who were previously in the show, as well as for Frank Darabont. Kang says some of her favorite scenes are yet to come, but she loves the Season 4 finale scene between Rick and Daryl.

Reedus says “it was truly an honor to be on this ride with you guys”, and is amazed at the impact the show has had. The cast receives a round of applause and everyone leaves except Gimple.

Gimple confirms that Lauren Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan have begun filming their spin-off and announces new cast members. A video message is then broadcast by Cohan and Morgan.

Finally, Hardwick asks Gimple about Rick Grimes movies – and Gimple says he can’t talk about it, but knows someone who can. Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira come out and announce that they will be returning as Rick and Michonne for a six-episode miniseries on AMC+, instead of a movie.

With soaring inflation, rising prices and the real possibility of food shortages on the horizon, more and more people are preparing. In other words, to prepare themselves and their families for any possible disasters, be they natural disasters, man-made disasters or economic disasters.

However, most of the advice you find online is more applicable to people who live in the suburbs or the countryside, for example how to collect rainwater, make a garden, etc.

But what about city dwellers? How can they prepare in their apartments against possible food shortages?

Well, if you’re wondering – you’re in luck because we’re about to go to a former firefighter here in New York – he was actually on the ground on 9/11 – but, for the past decade , he got ready.

Fortitude Ranch prepares to sell franchises for the ultimate in pandemic-era concepts: a members-only survival community equipped to weather any type of collapse or disaster and long-term loss of law and order .

Members will pay a few thousand dollars, on average, per person per year for what the founders consider middle class survival. They will store their weapons on site – one AR-15 shotgun per person is recommended, for defensive purposes only – as well as clothing, goggles and emergency prescriptions.

In times of peace, members can use the camps for outdoor retreats; two free weeks are included. In the event of a disaster, they will be called into service to assist the ranch manager in guarding, shooting invaders, preparing meals and foraging, and waiting out chaos for as long as it takes. . “Prepare for the worst but enjoy the present” is their motto.

“I’ve been a prepper for a long time, but I realized a decade ago that I wasn’t going to survive on my own,” said Drew Miller, CEO of Fortitude Ranch, who earned a doctorate from Harvard and is a colonel at retirement in the US Air Force.

If there’s a cyberattack on the power grid, for example, “those systems will be down for a year. Studies show you could lose 90% of the population. Especially with the chaos of a power loss, no law and order, prisons can’t work. People form groups, we call them marauders. If you have stuff prepared, you’ve actually made yourself a good target.

It ticks off different disasters and their likelihood: bird flu, meteor strikes, nanotechnology explosions or artificial intelligence gone rogue, and many more. “If you pay attention and think, you can see them coming. You can prepare for them,” he said, but he doesn’t believe on his own. “You can’t do it alone. If you’re a lone wolf, and especially if you’ve stored a lot of food, a marauder is coming, you’re going to get killed.”

Civil unrest increases membership

Interest in Fortitude Ranch membership has skyrocketed over the past two years, he said, leading to their decision to offer franchises – their goal is to have enough survival communities. so that each member is only one tank of gas away. “People are acknowledging getting ready a lot more,” he said, using the term “preparing” for people who are preparing for the end times. “It’s less the pandemic, it’s less the COVID, than what’s happened in recent years in Portland” and other major cities. “The riots. If a large group of people decides to start looting, the police can’t stop it. The police don’t have the power to do that.”

Enter Fortitude Ranch, which has five operational communities with a sixth in the land purchase phase, and is weeks away from finalizing its franchise disclosure document, Miller said, adding that he would not reveal details in the FDD until it is finished. He won’t say the number of Fortitude Ranch members so far, “for security reasons.” For a disaster, you need at least 50 members to operate the compound.

“It’s not easy to manage, we’ve spent years developing our operation. As you know, every franchise has an operations manual. Ours is over 100 pages. Our mission is to keep people in But there’s so much” included in his manual, like “how to use radiation detectors, how to deal with radioactive fallout,” and more.

Each resort will have a professional ranch manager on site at all times, and all ranch managers must be ex-military or law enforcement, construction experience desired.

Miller said the business had been profitable for three years; two established ranches, in West Virginia and Colorado, are making a profit, COO Steve Rene said.

“We will survive a collapse”

Why would a franchisee sign a 10-year contract for a franchise that is preparing for the end of the world? “In a meltdown, obviously they don’t care about profit, it’s about staying alive,” Miller said. #1: “We will survive a collapse. Our primary mission is to save the lives of our members, so we believe the primary focus of our franchisees will be to keep themselves and others alive.”

No. 2, “when this is over, when law and order is finally established, the opportunities for the survivors will be great. So many more people are gone, the survivors will have so many opportunities.”

For the facility itself, he said, “to get a capacity of 100 members, you plan to invest half a million dollars. Our rooms are small, we have three different types: spartan, economy and luxury”. For spartan, “you get a bunk bed and a hallway. Your membership, let’s say a 15, 25 year membership, that could cost you a thousand a year. Most people want a separate bedroom, so now you’re looking at the economy at the luxury, and those cost a bit more,” he said.

Membership fees are listed in a detailed table on fortituderanch.com. The down payment for a Spartan Individual Membership for five years is $1,800; plus $200 per term and an annual fee of $268, for food resupply. In contrast, a 50-year-old deluxe subscription for a family of five with toilets, is a down payment of $35,750, $1,250 per term and $1,340 annual fee.

Forbes magazine called the ranch “middle-class survival,” he said. “A lot of people have nice facilities, but they tend to be high-level politicians; the government takes care of itself. And then the rich” will be fine too. “A survival condo is about $3 million and then huge condo fees.”

He said the COVID-19 pandemic as well as civil unrest has resulted in big gains in memberships and interest in survivalist communities. “More and more people are moving out of the big cities and into rural areas. Before, when I looked at a property, I was the only one looking, but that changed two years ago,” Miller said.

Miller asks media who come for tours not to reveal the exact location. However, “we don’t rely on secrecy,” he said. “If you’re alive, people, groups of marauders will find you, trying to find food, trying to find guns and gas that they can steal, and they’ll find you wherever you are. We we will defend.”

A dual-use belvedere: wine and cheese, or filming

He said the compounds had dual-use features, such as a gazebo in the West Virginia compound. “This lookout, to use castle terminology, it’s called a bastion. It’s dual purpose. It’s wine and cheese, in good times. But in bad times, we can shoot down from this lookout. There’s just a lot of expertise that we’ve developed over the last decade.”

New members are trained on how to approach a Fortitude Ranch, among other things. “They’ll have your name, now you’re going to answer a challenge question,” like what’s your favorite movie. “And this is Terminator 2”, then you can enter, for example.

Members are told that they will have to help a lot in the event of a disaster and that they will be busy, especially in the first few days. “Rules are set by FR staff, and members shall act as directed by them until the security threat ceases or local law enforcement is restored,” the members’ agreement reads. “No member will be forced to leave unless FR staff determine that they pose a threat to the survival of the community.”

After a while, even at the end of time, Miller says, things will normalize. “We’ll have movie nights and eventually we’ll get to the point where we’ll have a good time.”

Coming Soon: A visit to the new Fortitude Ranch in Wisconsin, at an undisclosed location, shows that building a survival community takes hard work and money.
