The Hard Times Newsletter You Can’t Afford To Miss...

Dear Concerned American,

Do you feel like the whole world has gone insane … or, at the very least, has a bad case of denial? Do you believe, as I do, that any day now the you-know-what is going to hit the fan and all hell will break loose? Are you as surprised as I am that it hasn’t already?

My name is Bill Heid and for years I’ve been concerned about the direction our country is headed. There’s the financial mess, the credit crunch, the bailouts, the unemployment rate, the devaluation of the dollar, and more. And yet, these financial problems are only distracting us from an even more fundamental threat: our food supply. To put it plainly, we can no longer take our food supply for granted. We are fast approaching the day when unfettered access to adequate, nourishing, fresh food will be little more than a memory for many Americans. 

We’ve seen it happen in other countries: food riots, subsistence diets, and malnourishment. We assume it can’t happen here. We are kidding ourselves.

And in this special report, you’ll discover why.

The report is called Food Shock: Why 2011 Could Be The Most Important Year Ever To Plant A Family Garden. It’s my goal to get it into the hands of as many people as possible. Simply sign up for a free subscription to our weekly newsletter, Off the Grid News, and it’s yours free, available for immediate download.

In this disturbing report, you’ll discover:

  • What’s behind rising food prices, and why high food prices are “the new normal.”
  • How just one small setback – a regional drought, a natural disaster, or a crop disease – can severely threaten the entire world’s food supply.
  • Why it’s getting harder and harder to produce enough food here and abroad, and why GM crops are not the solution.
  • The shocking state of our food quality: not only are crops less nutritious than ever before, but in many cases they’re downright toxic.

Here’s Brian Brawdy to tell you more.

You read the headlines, but what do they really mean for you and your loved ones? We tap into our network of deep, undercover sources to discover the real story behind the headlines, and we provide analysis that helps you understand how they will impact your life.  These are the stories you won’t hear from the mainstream media.

  • Rising gold prices: what they mean to you, even if you don’t own gold

At Off the Grid News, we believe that personal responsibility is a moral imperative … as is helping your neighbor. The tips, techniques, and technologies you’ll glean from Off the Grid News will equip you to achieve both those things. Each week, you’ll be adding to your own knowledge and skill set as you learn from expert advisors from a wide range of backgrounds. You learn things like the right way to configure a solar panel … how to preserve food so that it doesn’t lose taste or nutritional value … what natural remedies fight pain and infection … how to protect your home from intruders … and much, much more. Plus, approximately once each month, you’ll receive a new in-depth special report, also free of charge, about one of the serious issues of today.

Life as we know it … gone in a split second

You never know what tomorrow will bring. Even if our food supply problems were miraculously solved tomorrow, any one of a number of threats could completely change our way of life. The blow could be yet another financial one … like the total and complete collapse of the U.S. dollar. It could be the coordinated detonation of dirty bombs or bio-weapons in major cities across the country. It could be an EMP event that takes down the entire power grid for months or years. No matter what’s in store … or even if life is hunky dory … everything you learn from Off the Grid News will come in handy and help make your life better.

As Christians and as patriotic Americans, we owe it to our loved ones and our society to be ready to serve one another in any way we can. That’s why preparation and stewardship are vital to our future – no matter how good or bad it may be. I’m so concerned for the future of our country that I’m putting all my resources behind the effort to inform people about the growing crises and educate them on the solutions that are available.

There are few publications in existence that offer the kind of insight and advice you’ll find in Off the Grid News, and those that do often charge $99, $199 even $359 a year … or more! Off The Grid News is like having six or eight different periodicals condensed into one, concise, easy-to-read weekly overview of practical information. Throw in a monthly special report that’s easily worth $29, $39, $49 or more, and you can see that a subscription to Off the Grid News is worth hundreds of dollars a year. But I would hate for anyone to miss out on this information just because budgets are tight. That’s why I’m offering this newsletter for free. At this writing, I have no plans to charge for this publication – not ever, if I can help it. But the fact is, there may come a time in the future where economic reality forces me to charge for this publication. So I urge you to subscribe now, and build up your knowledge base for free while you can.

As Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or most assuredly, we will all hang separately.” So please, come hang with us here at Off the Grid News.

“I’ve spent 25 years in emergency rooms and just got back from Haiti, where conditions were worse than anything I’ve seen before... I’ve been reading your newsletter for months but it wasn’t until I saw the conditions in Haiti that I realized how in a split second life can change forever... keep up the good work.”
-Dr. James Hollis, Tampa, FL

“A friend forwarded your newsletter to me and I found it fascinating, since I’ve been somewhat of a closet survivalist for years.  You’ve caused me to sit back a few times and re-evaluate my preparations and be more practical.  A lot of the information out there is just pie in the sky kind of stuff, so I appreciate your down-to-earth style.”
-Margaret Sanderson-Miller, Milwaukee, WI

“My favorite issue of all time was the one where you shared how vinegar can treat arthritis... my mother has suffered from crippling arthritis for years and within a few weeks of trying it she felt better than she had in years.  I know it’s not an ‘Off Grid’ thing but it changed my life. Thank you!”
-Rachel Porterfield, Provo, UT

“I don’t agree with all of your political views but your advice on alternative energy, survival stockpiling and gardening is invaluable. The first thing I do every Monday is check my email for your newsletter... and find myself hitting the get new messages button until it shows up!”
