I know the following info is common sense to experienced Preppers. But, maybe not so much for many of my readers who haven’t given it much thought.

I hear alot of talk on shows, like Glenn Beck, on how important gold will be when the financial crisis strikes. Your bank accounts will be worthless, your cash unwanted. The historical evidence is there to support that. Pre WWII, Germany’s Mark was really only valuable to help get a fire started. But in reality, is gold the way to go?

Now, new data shows that indeed, scores of foreign fighters and potential terrorists attempted to get into the U.S. to wreak havoc and kill Americans. And while many were intercepted, it is obvious that several may have gotten into the country.
