Bugging Out: How To Get Cheap Land

how to get cheap land
There’s no doubt about it – land is an incredible investment that will serve you well when SHTF. That’s because owning land allows you to hunt, grow crops, and raise animals on your own property. It also allows you to escape the masses during an emergency.
Unfortunately, land can also be quite expensive. And since many preppers don’t know how to get land for cheap, they often don’t have the resources to survive.Thankfully, it’s not too late to have the survival experience you want and need when SHTF. You just have to learn about….

Bugging Out: How To Get Cheap Land

Look For Land With Tax Liens

The truth is just because somebody owns land doesn’t mean they actually want it. Many times people inherit land once their relative dies. And without the right resources this can easily become more of a burden than a blessing.

If the owner isn’t able to afford the land, then it’s likely they’re not paying taxes on their property. And if that’s the case, you can bet the government is going to make sure they get their tax money.

One of the ways this happens is the government puts a lien on the property. This essentially gives them legal claim to the land. Granted, the property owner still has time to pay back the taxes. However, if time runs out then the government gets a tax deed – and this gives them legal ownership of the land.

Now that the government has their deed, they don’t exactly have use for the land itself. Which makes it an awesome opportunity for a prepper like you to come around and take it off their hands (likely for cheap).

Land with tax liens is often sold at an auction, with the starting bidding price being the amount of back taxes that are still owed. Although there are other bidders to compete against, not every property will have much competition. Go to enough auctions and you’re sure to find a piece of land that fits nicely in your budget.

One of the best ways to find out what properties are up for grabs is by contacting your local government office. They’ll usually direct you to a mailing list or PDF you can download with all the listings. Plus, if you get on the mailing list they’ll update you when new properties become available (making the workload much easier on you).

Keep Your Eye Out For Foreclosed Land

This is a very similar situation to the one above. However, foreclosed land is later owned by a bank, rather than the government.

Land is foreclosed on when the owner takes out a loan to buy the land and can’t repay it. The bank that issued that loan then comes and reclaims the property.

Banks don’t want to hold onto the land, so they make it a point to sell them at auctions where people can bid on them. Remember – the property owner does have a period of time to get their stuff together and pay off their loan. However, once that time period is up that land is ripe for the picking.

Or You Could Go “Old School”

Nowadays, this method happens less and less. Which means competition is a lot lower – and it can yield amazing results for you if you’re willing to do the work.

Your job is to drive around and find a piece of land that fits your bugging out needs. Try selecting ones that look run down or unoccupied.

Find out the address of this place, and if possible, the names of the owners. Keep in mind you’ll likely have to talk to people around town and see if anyone knows who lives there.

Once you have the address and names, write them a letter stating that you’re interested in purchasing their property. Then offer them a fair deal (it’s ideal if you can pay in full). Just make sure not to low-ball them; this can offend the owners and will really screw up your chances at getting the land.

Keep in mind nobody is going to give away their land for free. So get creative. For instance, try saving your tax return and then using that as a bargaining chip when dealing with the sellers.

If you’re not having any luck affording a spot, it’s time to consider downsizing, or even moving out West. Property is less expensive west of the Mississippi, so you may need to relocate to find a good bug-out spot.

( – Joe Biden has decided not to run for reelection.

On Sunday afternoon, Biden declared his plan and promised to provide further details shortly.

“It has been the greatest honor of my life to serve as your President,” Biden’s statement read. “And while it has been my intention to seek reelection, I believe it is in the best interest of my party and the country for me to stand down and to focus solely on fulfilling my duties as President for the remainder of my term.”

Although Vice President Kamala Harris was expressly endorsed as his successor, he congratulated her in his statement for “being an extraordinary partner in all this work.”

But Biden later gave “my full support and endorsement for Kamala to be the nominee of our party this year” in a statement uploaded on X.

Then, in a powerful message to Democrats, Biden urged them to unite and defeat Trump, emphasizing the importance of collective action in the upcoming election.

Do you believe VP Kamala Harris will be the 2024 Democratic presidential nominee?

9 Secret Service Failures that Led to Trump Almost Being Assassinated

9 Secret Service Failures that Led to Trump Almost Being Assassinated

( – This past Saturday, during a campaign rally in Butler, Pennsylvania, former President Donald Trump came dangerously close to being assassinated in what is believed to be the biggest Secret Service blunder in forty years.

The fact remains that the organization tasked with defending Trump was unable to prevent the gunman, 20-year-old Thomas Matthew Crooks, from setting up shop less than 500 feet away, killing Corey Comperatore, a 50-year-old volunteer fire chief, and hitting President Trump in the ear.

Numerous investigations are in progress, but there have been few replies yet. Kimberly Cheatle, the director of the Secret Service, is scheduled to testify before the House Oversight Committee on Monday.

The following nine significant security lapses by the Secret Service that we are now aware of require attention:

1. There was an apparent security concern from the rooftop from where Crooks fired shots at Trump. According to NBC News, the Secret Service had recognized the rooftop as a possible point of vulnerability in the days leading up to the rally.

Why was the building given to local law enforcement and not included in the Secret Service’s inside perimeter? Why wasn’t the building’s perimeter secured? How did rally participants see Crooks ascending to the rooftop and positioning himself before the police could stop him?

When did the Secret Service’s counter-sniper teams learn about him, and why weren’t any of them designated to keep an eye on the rooftop?

2. The Secret Service allowed local police enforcement to be housed inside the structure instead of outside on the roof. According to Cheatle, the choice was to house local law enforcement inside the structure instead of on top of it.

She asserted that the roof’s “slope” was a “safety factor” in the decision. Dan Bongino, a podcast presenter and former Secret Service agent, has dubbed that “bullsh-t.”

In his July 18, 2024, podcast episode, Bongino stated that he had heard from sources that local police snipers were placed inside because they were pitted against counter-snipers and thought they could accomplish the task from the building’s second story.

This raises the question: Why weren’t counter-snipers on the rooftop watching for would-be snipers?

3. The building’s exterior was not secure, which gave Crooks access to the rooftop. Who was guarding the building from the outside or the rooftop from below, even if local police snipers were not stationed on the rooftop?

Did local law enforcement officers have a watch duty at the building? The Washington Post stated that although the agency had planned ahead, local police had informed the Secret Service before Saturday that they did not have the means to place a patrol car and officer outside the facility.

Why didn’t the Secret Service devise a backup strategy? How did Crooks manage to go to the top unhindered and get a direct line of sight with Trump?

4. About three hours before Trump spoke, at around 3 p.m., local law police noticed Crooks near a magnetometer with a range finder. After that, they lost sight of him. Why hadn’t law enforcement or the Secret Service questioned or followed him earlier?

CNN reports that Crooks caused a stir when he passed past magnetometers erected to check participants for the presence of a range finder. This device resembles a tiny pair of binoculars and is frequently used by the military or hunters to locate targets.

According to Bongino, there is disagreement over whether he used magnetometers in real life. Nevertheless, he was supposedly seen close to them.

The questions are: Who saw Crooks using the range finder, and who was informed of the sighting? Why wasn’t he followed up with or questioned at that point?

5. Crooks was not stopped or questioned even though local law enforcement officers reportedly saw him about an hour before Trump was scheduled to speak.

They saw him hanging outside the building, scoping the rooftop, returning with a backpack, and pulling out a range finder. They reported him to a command center.

It is unclear to whom Crooks was reported, whether the Secret Service knew about him then, and why he was not apprehended or questioned in light of his suspicious activity.

How was he permitted to ascend onto the rooftop without being stopped if he was under the notice of the Secret Service or local law enforcement?

6. About 20 minutes before Trump entered the stage, at 5:52 p.m., the Secret Service allegedly saw Crooks on the rooftop. Despite this, the agency did not prevent Trump from taking the platform.

At 5:52 p.m., ABC News reported he was spotted on the rooftop by Secret Service snipers. Why was Trump permitted to speak on stage even though?

When a local police officer observed Crooks on the rooftop sometime around 6:02 p.m., it was said that he pointed his gun at him, which caused him to tumble back down and hurt himself.

Were the Secret Service snipers present when this occurred, and if so, why were they inactive at that time?

7. The Secret Service snipers did nothing before Crooks fired at Trump, even though he had drawn his gun and positioned himself to shoot him.

Why wasn’t he neutralized before he could shoot Trump, even after the Secret Service recognized him as a threat and after he took out a gun and took up position?

Why was there an 11-second delay between Crooks’ initial shot at Trump and the Secret Service snipers’ fatal shot, assuming they had seen him at 5:52 p.m.?

8. Trump arrived on stage at 6:02 p.m., and for ten minutes, no action was taken to remove him from the platform until Crooks was able to open fire on him at 6:12 p.m.

Why wasn’t Trump removed from the stage, even if Secret Service snipers saw Crooks on the rooftop and were unsure of what to do?

Who decided not to try to remove him, and was there an attempt to do so?

9. No drone monitoring was conducted during the event, which would have allowed law police to catch Crooks scaling the rooftop earlier.

Despite the Secret Service’s capacity to request drone monitoring, Bongino claims no drone was used to record the event.

Was that capability requested by the Secret Service? If yes, who disputed it and to what extent?

On Monday, Cheatle—who has acknowledged that she has no plans to retire despite receiving calls for her resignation—will have many questions to respond to.

Should the Secret Service Director be immediately fired?

( – Over the past eight years, leftists who have called for violence against President Trump and his followers have become all too familiar to us.

Now that an attempt on Trump’s life was foiled at his Pennsylvania rally the previous weekend, we must give these unlawful threats against the former president and his allies more careful thought.

A well-known far-left live streamer named Destiny—a man with a female name—went on a hateful rampage against the late Trump supporter Corey Comperatore during the past week after Comperatore was struck by a bullet that was accidentally fired at the president.

It didn’t take long for blue-haired lefties like Destiny to start joyfully celebrating the death of a Trump fan while lamenting the fact that the assassin didn’t manage to kill the former president.

His words promoting violence led to his (supposedly) demonetization on X, and he was also temporarily suspended from, a well-known streaming service, for making the same heinous statements.

Many conservatives supported Destiny’s right to make such remarks as an example of the First Amendment.

But Destiny changed his tone during the RNC, going from endorsing violence to openly endorsing political assassinations.


After facing a series of personal challenges, including a highly publicized divorce, Destiny suffered a dramatic meltdown.

During an impromptu interview with The Gateway Pundit journalist Elijah Schaffer during the RNC in Milwaukee, WI, the host of The Young Turks, Ana Kasparian, went out of her way to denounce these remarks even though some conservatives were quick to accuse all liberals of thinking the same way.

It’s alarming to see someone with Destiny’s level of popularity advocating for political violence. However, it’s heartening to see progressive colleagues like Ana Kasparian criticize him for his deplorable remarks and serve as a reminder that, occasionally, people have public breakdowns.

Should far-left liberals promoting violence, like Destiny, be immediately de-platformed and demonetized?
