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.

Mayorkas in Hot Seat For Allegedly Encouraging Illegals to Vote for Biden

secretary-alejandro-mayorkas-department-homeland-security1

During a recent congressional budget hearing, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas found himself under intense scrutiny by Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) concerning a deeply troubling allegation. The Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project reported the discovery of a flyer, purportedly from Resource Center Matamoros, which brazenly encourages migrants to vote for President Joe Biden, promising, “We need another four years of his term to stay open.” This inflammatory material, allegedly found by independent journalists in Mexico and reported by Muckraker, raises grave concerns about the integrity of our electoral process.

The flyer, still unverified by mainstream media outlets and missing from the Resource Center Matamoros’s official resources, points to a potential scandal of significant proportions. The implications are severe—suggesting a concerted effort to manipulate U.S. elections by influencing the migrant population, a group explicitly ineligible to participate in our voting system.

Rep. Bishop confronted Mayorkas directly: “The Heritage Foundation Oversight Project has released this document that is allegedly a flyer distributed by a non-governmental organization in Mexico called the Resource Center Matamoros … which is said to read, in part, if translated, ‘Reminder to vote for President Biden when you are in the United States. We need another four years of his term to stay open,'” illustrating a critical lapse in border security and immigration enforcement under the current administration.

Mayorkas’s response was both dismissive and inadequate, stating that “individuals who are not citizens of the United States cannot vote in federal elections” and claiming that DHS does not oversee election enrollments but merely enforces border policies. However, this response starkly highlights the core issue—the Biden administration’s lax enforcement and oversight policies, which have allowed millions, including two million undocumented ‘got-aways,’ to potentially exploit loopholes in the electoral registration process.

Secretary Mayorkas and the Biden administration must be held accountable for their role in what appears to be a flagrant disregard for the laws that safeguard both our borders and our ballots. This incident is not an isolated blip but a symptom of a broader, more disturbing trend under Secretary Mayorkas’s DHS: a deliberate softening of immigration policies that seem designed to favor political over practical interests.

It’s imperative for the integrity of our democratic process that thorough investigations are conducted. If migrants are indeed being instructed, implicitly or explicitly, to support a particular political outcome, such actions must be met with the full force of the law. We must demand more than lackluster assurances from our leaders; we need concrete actions and transparent accountability to restore faith in our immigration system and electoral integrity.

Biden’s Blunders: Scripted Leadership in Crisis Times?

arlington-va-usa-may-29-2023

Once again, President Biden has been caught on camera, not trusting his own words during crucial moments. During a recent Oval Office meeting with Iraq’s Prime Minister, while the world reels from a violent missile and drone attack by Iran on Israel, Biden couldn’t step away from his pre-written scripts.

Photographs reveal that Biden, aged 81, resorted to a detailed cheat sheet, which embarrassingly included all-caps stage directions for pausing, allowing for translation. This was during his first public address since the devastating attack on Israel over the weekend. The contrast was stark next to Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia’a Al-Sudani, who spoke freely, without the aid of notes.

Instead of addressing the nation live while missiles were still threatening lives, the White House chose to “call a lid” early in the evening, opting only to release staged photos of Biden in the Situation Room. It was only after the immediate crisis had eased that Biden communicated with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to express U.S. support, and convened a discussion with G7 leaders—again, following the script too cautiously, reportedly urging Netanyahu to limit Israel’s response, seemingly more worried about political optics than decisive leadership.

In public, Biden stated, “The United States is committed to Israel’s security…We are committed to a cease-fire that will bring the hostages home and prevent the conflict from spreading further.” Yet, these words, read from his script, now ring hollow, reflecting a pattern of relying on scripted safety nets even in supposedly spontaneous discussions.

This tendency to lean heavily on pre-written prompts was noted not only in moments of international crisis but also in less formal settings like private fundraisers, causing discomfort among his own supporters, as per reports from Axios.

As crises unfold, the leader of the free world should be expected to address his nation and the world with conviction and authenticity, not hide behind carefully curated words. The frequent appearance of Biden’s cheat sheets raises concerning questions about his ability to lead through unscripted challenges—where real leadership is tested not by the ability to follow a script, but to speak from the heart and adapt with strength.

Migrant Invaders Brazenly Charge at Swimmers in Speedboat

juarez-mexico-12212022-hundreds-migrants-wait

In a blatant affront to American sovereignty, a dozen illegal immigrants executed a dangerous and illegal invasion of our shores, arriving at a California beach via speedboat with reckless disregard for the safety of Americans enjoying their leisure time. One surfer narrowly escaped harm as the vessel tore through the water at high speeds, a clear symbol of the contempt these lawbreakers hold for our laws and our people.

This latest episode in Carlsbad, a mere 30 miles north of San Diego, is a chilling reminder of the organized lawlessness that is being orchestrated across our borders. Once ashore, these illegal entrants scurried toward luxury vehicles, suggesting a level of premeditation and support that borders on an invasion facilitated by criminal networks.

Compounding the audacity of this episode was the abject failure of local law enforcement to respond, leaving law-abiding citizens to fend for themselves. Such incidents underscore a terrifying erosion of law and order, signaling to criminals everywhere that our borders are open for exploitation.

This incident is not an anomaly but a stark representation of a broader crisis fueled by a border policy that might as well hang a welcome sign for criminals and opportunists. The alarming influx of illegal crossings, particularly in the San Diego sector—where nearly 7,000 breaches were reported last week alone—is a direct result of deliberate inaction and misguided policies that invite chaos and endanger American lives.

The economic and social strain this unchecked immigration inflicts on our communities is unsustainable. The closure of local migrant shelters, once hemorrhaging millions of taxpayer dollars monthly, is a testament to the fiscal burden imposed by these continuous waves of illegal entrants. This burden has now shifted to our airports and bus stations, turning them into makeshift shelters and degrading the quality of life for residents and tourists alike.

It is evident that our current administration lacks the will to address this crisis effectively. The projected figures are a dire warning: with over 8 million people potentially on our streets, including two million with criminal intentions, the situation is nothing short of a national emergency.

Congress must act with urgency to secure our borders and overhaul an immigration system that has been exploited far too long. We need robust enforcement of our immigration laws, substantial penalties for those who violate them, and an end to policies that encourage illegal entry into our country. The time for tolerance of this disorder is over. The safety, security, and sovereignty of the United States must be enforced rigorously and without apology. We must protect American citizens and the integrity of our nation.
