It used to be that the term “doomsday prepper” evoked a certain visual of an ultra-conservative, bearded woodsman with slightly less than stellar hygiene practices living in the middle of no where with an arsenal of weaponry and a sufficient hoard of dried and canned food to live for years. But recently that all seems to be changing. And whether the election of Trump was the catalyst that drove the world’s rich to start prepping or simply allowed them to open up about being preppers all along, one thing is certain, “prepping” is growing in popularity among America’s billionaires.
In the latest issue of The New Yorker, Evan Osnos takes a look at some of the super-rich that are taking extreme measures to prepare for the apocalypse. One such wealthy prepper is Silicon Valley’s Reddit CEO, Steve Huffman, who admits that he went so far as to get corrective eye surgery, not for convenience or appearance, but bacause “If the world ends…getting contacts or glasses is going to be a huge pain in the ass…without them, I’m fucked.” Continue reading »
November 2016 – TEXAS – Some upper-income Texans are headed down below, not Australia, but in an large underground bunker complex. An investor group is planning for a doomsday scenario by building a $300 million luxury community underground replete with the latest leisure amenities like a golf course and shooting range. The development, called Trident Lakes, is in a little town called Ector, which is just northeast of Dallas. Residents will enjoy an equestrian center, 18-hole golf course, polo fields, zip lines and gun ranges. Retail shops, restaurants and a row of helipads are also in the works. For those looking to “get away,” they’ll also be able to enjoy three white sand beaches and a neighborhood spa. Continue reading »
For years now, residents of Sonora, California have been hearing a window-shaking loud and so far officially unexplained BOOM! that always happens between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. daily.
Inquisitr reports that the explanation floating around Sonora from a local geologist/teacher is that an Army Depot in Hawthorne, Nevada, all the way across the state and behind a mountain range which disposes of old munitions like bombs, might be what residents have been hearing. Continue reading »
Panicked members of the elite are buying luxury bomb-proof underground survival bunkers because they fear mass civil unrest might be on the horizon.
The company behind the construction of the sprawling complexes, Vivos, says the facilities are for the “protection of high net worth individuals” in the event of apocalyptic-style scenarios during which “millions will perish or worse yet, struggle to survive as victims”.
“Where will you go when pandemonium strikes?” asks a promo for the luxury shelters.
The biggest facility, called Europa One, is located in Germany and is “one of the most fortified and massive underground survival shelters on Earth, deep below a limestone mountain” and is “safely secured from the general public, behind sealed and secured walls, gates and blast doors”.

– For Sale: Renovated Luxury Condo; Can Survive Nuclear Attack (Wall Street Journal, Nov 9, 2014):
Affluent buyers worried about doomsday are snapping up well-appointed bunkers built in a former missile silo.
The so-called Survival Condo complex boasts full and half-floor units that cost $1.5 million to $3 million each. The building can accommodate up to 75 people, and buyers include doctors, scientists and entrepreneurs, says developer Larry Hall.
Mr. Hall, who lives in a Denver suburb, bought his first missile-silo site in Kansas in 2008 and completed construction in December 2012. A year later, he says, the development had sold out. Work on the second security compound—the one where Mr. Allen bought a unit—is under way, and Mr. Hall says he is considering additional sites in Texas and elsewhere.
As former nuclear missile sites built under the supervision of the Army Corps of Engineers, the structures were originally designed to withstand a direct hit by a nuclear bomb. At ground level, they can be sealed up by two armored doors weighing 16,000 pounds each. Mr. Hall added sophisticated water and air-treatment facilities, state-of-the-art computer network technology and several alternate power generation capabilities. Continue reading »

– Armageddon Chic: Luxury Escapes for the End of the World (Exec Digital, Aug 10, 2012):
The clock on your $30,000 Breguet watch is ticking, and you realize you only have roughly five months until the ‘end times.’ 2012 is just around the bend. The Mayans may not have developed a cure for smallpox, but they did warn that this year may be the end of civilization as we know it. (Or at least that is what Jon Cusack’s hypnotic acting performance in 2012 has brilliantly led us masses to blindly believe.)
You are too smart, and rich, to panic. So instead you splendidly flip through your diamond studded, gold dust imbued, gilded iPad trying to find this article. Like every bright and successful genius you remember Exec Digital gave a detailed guide on the best luxury hot spots to flee to when escaping impending Armageddon calamity.
The first base is the Tejon RCS Facility owned by Northrop Grumman. 34 54’58.78″ N 118 30’20.73″ W
The second base is the Gray Butte RCS Facility owned by McDonnell Douglas. 34 33’21.72″ N 117 38’27.61″ W
The third base, which is confused for being Area 51, because of the underground installation, is Helendale Avionics Facility, owned by Lockheed Martin. 34 48’53.58″ N 117 15’24.53″ W
The fourth base, which is the strangest one is known as the Anthill. It looks like a Sumerian Zigurat. The base is connected to the hill. The road leading to the Anthill is called Mars Blvd, which is an appropiate name. There’s other interesting places, such as a large building above the Anthill, but there wasn’t enough time to show all these places. The roads leading off of Mars Blvd to the Anthill and other places such as the large building above the Anthill are called Edwards Airforce Station. The Anthill as well as the other bases shown in this video, are all in close proximity to each other, which suggests they may be connected to each other. Edwards Airforce Base is in the middle of the bases shown in this video. 34 51’47.23″ N 117 36’33.77″ W
The footage was filmed from an airplane by Gary Schultz. The audio is from an interview between Gary Schultz and Norio Hayakawa.

– Condo at the End of the World (The Verge, Nov. 1, 2011):
A new breed of survivalist is wealthy, educated, and plans to ride out 2012 in style
Somewhere in the old Cincinnati-Dayton Defense Area that spans Southwest Ohio and Southeast Indiana sits a $1.5 million “man cave.” I made my way to the site on a warm fall morning with Google Maps and GPS coordinates supplied by my real estate advisers, Matthew and Leigh Ann Fulkerson of 20th Century Castles, LLC. Built in a decommissioned Nike missile site, the residence boasts a kitchen, four bedrooms, two baths, an exercise room, indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi, and an elevator for lowering the owner’s classic automobiles below the surface. On clear days, the doors that once exposed anti-ballistic missile for launch can be opened to let sunshine penetrate the otherwise dimly lit basement.
A lot of effort has been made by the current owner to cheer things up: a Care Bears mural graces a wall in one of the bedrooms, a building on the 14-plus-acre property has been converted into a white and red horse barn. But there are touches — such as the blast door and L-shaped hallway for containing explosions — that betray the home’s former life as one of well over two hundred missile sites that ringed America’s cities, defending them from incoming Soviet bombers.
There is no way of knowing how many privately owned bunkers there are in the United States

For your information.
This underground base, as mentioned in the article below, has supposedly also been destroyed:
I am just posting this because WW III is/has been on the elitist agenda, starting in the middle east and then spreading from there throughout the entire world.
If all these elitist bunkers get destroyed, then WW III will be (most probably) canceled and their NEW WORLD ORDER is in big trouble.
I could go more into detail why I have finally decided to post this ‘TOTALLY CRAZY’ material, but right now I believe/think the time has not yet come to discuss that.

– 5.0 Gulf of Aden quake: Andromeda Council sonic beam destroys reptilian base (Examiner, Nov. 1, 2011):
Confirmation – Destruction of Reptilian undersea base
In an exclusive Oct. 31, 2011 ExopoliticsTV interview, the human representative of the Andromeda Council confirmed that a 5.0 earthquake reported by the U.S. Geological Survey (U.S.G.S.) to have occurred in the Gulf of Aden at 1:22 am on October 31, 2011 was in fact an effect of a sonic beam weapons attack by the Procyon star system (members of the Andromeda Council) on a Draco & Reptilian undersea base located at the same coordinates as the epicenter of the Gulf of Aden earthquake. (See FIG A for U.S.G.S. map setting out the exact epicenter of the Gulf of Aden earthquake).
In an October 31, 2011 statement, Tolec, the human representative of the Andromeda Council stated, “Yes, I was able to confirm this event with the commander of the primary biosphere where many of the Andromeda Council meetings are held. This was a strike by the Procyon people. They’re just doing their job as promised. This base in now completely collapsed & destroyed.”
You can’t make this stuff up.

– LA Porn Studio Begins Construction On ‘Post-Apocalyptic’ Underground Bunker (CBS News, Sep. 14, 2011):
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A San Fernando Valley adult entertainment studio began construction this month on what it calls a “post-apocalyptic” underground bunker in anticipation of a global catastrophe rumored to take place in late 2012.
A spokesman for Van Nuys-based Pink Visual said the bunker will be “far more than a mere bomb shelter or subterranean survivalist enclave” with amenities such as multiple fully-stocked bars, an enormous performing stage and a sophisticated content production studio.
“Our goal is nothing less than to survive the apocalypse to come in comfort and luxury,” said Pink Visual spokesman Quentin Boyer, “whether that catastrophe takes the form of fireballs flung earthward by an all-seeing deity, extended torrential rainfall, Biblical rapture, an earthquake-driven mega-tsunami, radioactive flesh-eating zombies, or some combination of the above.”
The studio’s website will also be maintained and updated throughout any potential disaster “even if those websites are only available on the bunker’s self-contained local network by that time,” Boyer added.

UNDERGROUND storm shelters and deep earth bunkers…
my personal suggestion is……NOW IS THE TIME TO ORDER!! No exaggeration, and I wouldn’t endorse something unless I PERSONALLY needed one myself, and unless I REALLY thought you the viewer might need one as well.
here is the site to review the bunker and weather pod information:

Whistleblower Phil Schneider, A Former Government Engineer, Has Been Brutally Murdered Seven Months After Taping This Video
Has the United States government been building large scale underground cities for 2012 holocaust survivors? Many believe a cataclysmic event will result in great devastation across the face of the planet. Will survival of the human race depend on the chosen few taking refuge in these subterranean shelters located deep beneath the surface of the Earth? How much of the TRILLIONS of dollars of “bailout” money (some of which the government conveniently tells us us is “lost”) is being directed to the black budget for final completion of their construction?
According to former government engineer Phil Schneider, at least 129 of these underground cities have been built over the last 50 to 60 years.
In this video Mr. Schneider describes construction of the deep underground military bases which are located across the United States. He also recounts how he was one of only three people to survive the 1979 shootout between subterranean aliens and U.S. military and intelligence forces at the deep underground military base in Dulce, NM.
This May 1995 lecture is one of only a few given by Mr. Schneider before his untimely death. Openly acknowledging that the dissemination of this information constituted both a breach of his security oaths and a major violation of federal law, he speculated as to how long he might be allowed to continue speaking out in this manner.
The unfortunate answer to his speculation came seven months after the taping of this video. Phil Schneider was found dead in his apartment with piano wire still wrapped around his neck in January of 1996. Some sources report that he had been brutally tortured before being killed.
– Doomsday fears spur spate of bunker building (San Francisco Chronicle):
Terrorism can be good for bunker builders. An apocalypse can be even better for business.
Danila Andreyev started building “panic rooms” three years ago, when fears of terrorist attacks and commercial disputes turning violent created demand in Russia. Now he’s selling “survival bunkers” for as much as $400,000 each to capitalize on angst over theories the world will end next year.
“I myself am not a believer in doomsday scenarios,” Andreyev, 31, whose Spetsgeoproekt company is completing 15 bunkers at hidden locations across Russia, said at his office in central Moscow. “But when you start hearing clients talking about the end of the world, it gets you thinking.”
Libyan leader’s palace outside al-Baida is not just luxurious, but a bunker designed to withstand a nuclear attack.
As pro-democracy demonstrators gain control of more cities in eastern Libya, Muammar Gaddafi’s many properties in the hands of protesters have been ransacked and destroyed.
One such palace sits on the outskirts of al-Baida.
Set in beautifully landscaped gardens, with a covered swimming pool, a sauna and a jacuzzi for Gaddafi and his guests, the palace offers a glimpse into the fortified world of a leader, who, according to US diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks, suffers from a severe phobia.
Deep inside the Swiss Alps, a former nuclear bunker is now the ultimate hiding place for the world’s most sensitive secrets. Wired gains access to the server farm designed to survive a full-scale military attack.
The cockpit of Christoph Oschwald’s silver Audi A8 is preternaturally quiet as he steers through the Swiss countryside towards our destination. Wired has been instructed not to disclose its exact whereabouts. It’s late June, “the longest day of the year”, Oschwald notes. It should be 25°C outside. Instead, it’s an unseasonably chilly 12°C, and the tiny village of Saanen, in the canton of Bern, sits beneath a steel-grey sky that lends an ominous air to what might otherwise resemble an Alpenland panorama on a souvenir chocolate bar.
The green valley that cradles Saanen and the near by town of Gstaad in the Bernese highlands plays host, according to local newspaper Der Bund, to the highest concentration of billionaires in the world, their chalets creeping up the piney slopes. But it’s also home to something else — a place that you won’t find on any of the tourist maps. For the past 18 years, Oschwald, 53, a retired Swiss paratrooper turned contractor, and his business partner, an engineer named Hanspeter Baumann, 55, have committed thousands of hours and millions of francs to realising their vision — the place we’re headed to today.
We pass a Tissot boutique abutting a tractor dealership before the road dives into dense forest and follows a stream. Finally we arrive at our destination. At first, it appears to be nothing more than a timber operation, with lorries moving wooden payloads around a gravelly clearing. But then we see them: three guards clad in black uniforms, berets askew, pacing at the base of an enormous mountain. The Alpine foliage above the sentry ends abruptly at a bare rock face painted in fading camo. And carved into the side of the mountain is our destination: a small, weather-beaten metal door. Once the entrance to a vast nuclear bunker built by the Swiss military at the height of the Cold War in the mid-60s, it is now a portal into what its creators claim to be the most secure and secretive storehouse for digital information in the world: the place Oschwald has christened Swiss Fort Knox.
“Sixteen years ago, nobody took us seriously,” Oschwald says. “They said to us, ‘Storing data under a mountain? Why?’” In the cheerier geopolitical climate of the 90s, it was decidedly easier to scoff at the eccentric Swiss entrepreneur, with his slicked-back hair and blinding white smile, as he extolled the data-security benefits of his decommissioned bunker. But today — with terrorism, environmental disasters and financial meltdown on the global agenda — some of the biggest players in technology and finance are buying into the facility’s promise. Oschwald can tick off blue-chip companies such as Cisco Systems, Novartis, UBS and Deutsche Bank among his clients.
Who knew that, 10 storeys beneath a Worcestershire hill, the corporation is ready for Armageddon?
It all makes sense, once you know what you’re looking at. The 200 acres of thickly wooded hillside, inaccessible by public footpath; the radio mast strategically poking out on top; the hidden entrance, just off the A44 near Evesham, in Worcestershire, surrounded by CCTV cameras and a high-security barrier. But to the passing motorist, there is nothing about Wood Norton Hall to identify it as the site of the BBC’s secret nuclear bunker.
Who knew there even was such a thing? The BBC would certainly rather we didn’t. It emerged recently that, from tomorrow, the continuity announcers at Radio 4 will decamp there for three weeks while a £1bn refurbishment is finished at Broadcasting House, London. However, a corporation source declined to confirm or deny the story. They would rather not discuss what goes on at Wood Norton, she said, and no, The Independent on Sunday was certainly not welcome to come and visit.
So, what don’t they want us to see?
According to the official line, Wood Norton is a training camp, where sound engineers are sent for residential weekends. That is certainly one function: zoom in on Google Earth and you see a compound of modern buildings nestled in the woods which, according to engineers who have visited the site, are equipped with the latest high-tech facilities. Other blocks house accommodation and a canteen. But it’s what you can’t see from above the ground that is intriguing.
Buried 10 storeys into the hillside is a fully functioning nuclear bunker, built at great expense in 1966, at the height of the Cold War. So few people knew of its existence that, even when it was being built, visiting trainees were told not to ask why all that concrete was being mixed. Those involved in its construction were obliged to sign the Official Secrets Act, and even now you won’t get a peep out of the BBC press office to acknowledge the reality.
Come the end of the world, you might like to sit it out in style. All you need is money and a few DIY skills…
Abandon any notion of surviving the apocalypse by doing anything as boringly obvious as running for the highest hill, or eating cockroaches. The American firm Vivos is now offering you the chance to meet global catastrophe (caused by terrorism, tsunami, earthquake, volcano, pole shift, Iran, “social anarchy”, solar flare – a staggering list of potential world-murderers are considered) in style.
Vivos is building 20 underground “assurance of life” resorts across the US, capable of sustaining up to 4,000 people for a year when the earth no longer can. The cost? A little over £32,000 a head, plus a demeaning-sounding screening test that determines whether you are able to offer meaningful contribution to the continuation of the human race. Company literature posits, gently, that “Vivos may prove to be the next Genesis”, and they are understandably reluctant to flub the responsibility. Continue reading »
