Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine: A Sign of Things to Come?

Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine: A Sign of Things to Come?

The day after Russia celebrated the May 9th anniversary of victory over Nazi Germany in 1945, the much-talked-about fear of a nuclear attack on Ukraine has not happened, as theorized by many. A more precise explanation as to why it was unlikely to happen was provided by David Petraeus, whose credibility in military strategy is virtually unparalleled. His rise to prominence as an Army General in the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars under George W. Bush, and subsequent CIA detail in the Obama Administration, gives him key insights into world events and the skill to explain them without leaking critical military defense data.

Today on Rob Raskins’ Millionaire Survivalist, consider how recent events seem to play into the public’s perceptions and how this relates to conspiracy theories motivated more by fear than by credible data. We may be preppers, but we’re not stupid.

The Power of Information

It’s often said that information wins wars. It’s also true that misinformation wins wars, which is great if you’re the one controlling the information and using it to confuse and confound your enemy. In WWII, America deliberately communicated false information in every clever way possible to give Japanese and German intelligence the belief that they were cracking our codes. Meanwhile, real information was shared by Navajo code talkers since there was no way for foreign intelligence to have the foggiest clue of how to decode the language.

I don’t consider myself an enemy of the state, nor do I consider the media to be an enemy of peace. I do consider many media figures to be the prom kings and queens with the charisma to attract followers who envy them at the most animal level. This, to me, is mutually exclusive from the news since talking heads are merely messengers reading a teleprompter. Whatever real information may be going on, who’s to say what’s real unless they’re privy to inside information from boots on the ground?

What is a Boy to Do?

The short answer to this question is to remember to continue to do what’s prudent to stay the course and stockpile munitions and provisions needed to survive when the moment of truth comes. If you have an underground bunker at a sight that allows for protected living above ground, you’re probably already there. Meanwhile, the need for people to believe that nothing is happening, or the worst is happening flies in the face of what’s actually happening. If the average person gets scared and stays home from work, they get fired, go homeless, and starve to death in an alley- if they don’t get knifed first.

There’s never a greenlight to lose one’s cool and succumb to fear-based thinking, which is the core philosophy of survivalism. It’s the intelligent, sober-minded, proactive dedication to planning an exit strategy in the event that one is needed so that there is little opportunity to be caught with one’s proverbial pants down. So, while it’s a game of “Cloak and Daggers” to many survival enthusiasts, we recommend you not devolve from your humanity in the process of trying to survive these trying times.

Survivalism: a “Trend” in Pop Culture?

Survivalism: a “Trend” in Pop Culture?

In today’s world of post-COVID lockdowns, mass weather events, failing electrical grids, and the not-so-distant memory of 9/11, it seems that everyone has a crystal-clear picture in their heads of just what an EOTWAWKI scenario would look like. “Coincidentally,” without my realizing it, a film about this very subject came out just last October of 2021. It’s called The Survivalist, and it stars John Milkovich as a post-apocalyptic warlord. While the film doesn’t showcase the most affluent or even the fairly well-heeled, it clearly depicts the motivating reasons why the so-called extreme measures of “Doomsday Preppers” persist.

Today on Rob Raskins’ Millionaire Survivalist, we’ll visit the film The Survivalist and consider its role as a tool to instruct the masses. If art imitates life, then this film is both capitalizing on the fear of recent events and making people reevaluate their priorities for existence. Meanwhile, society’s elites have never stopped measuring their own success, not just financially but as a persistent force on Earth.

The Survivalist – Synopsis

Per IMDB, “A year and a half after the fall of civilization due to a viral outbreak, a former FBI agent is forced to protect a young woman immune to the disease from a dangerous gang leader hunting her.”

If you look at the trailer, what you’ll see is the absolute downfall of society, as a major urban area succumbs to mass chaos and violence, loss of control by authorities, guerrilla warfare in the streets, and so on. This, of course, is what sets the stage for the difficult but important task of the girl surviving all of this and struggling to find her way to the FBI agent turned survivalist. All the while, she’s being hunted by a maniacal warlord, likely focused on her detainment for scientific observation since her immune system holds the key to everyone’s survival. Clearly, conflict will ensue, drama will unfold, and theaters will sell much popcorn and soda.

The World of Survivalism in the Public Consciousness

While the plot synopsis and storyline are focused on the dramatic struggle of the characters, it’s clear that this film is capitalizing on the mass hysteria generated by COVID. Naturally, you can expect the masses to become cognizant of the problems they all face at the same time. However, those who’ve survived such battles unfamiliar to the masses seem to march to the tune of a different drummer. Whether it’s an immigrant in NYC having escaped apartheid in his homeland or your garden variety religious zealot, they don’t need anyone to tell them what’s coming.

Who can’t help but notice a pattern of global destruction of “Biblical Proportions?” Viewing through the prophetic lens of Judgement Day, as famously foretold in the Gospel of John, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse spread pestilence (plague), famine, war, and subsequently, death. Meanwhile, every day, the news sees increasing mass casualties related to COVID, Putin’s war against Ukraine, and of course, the struggle of supply lines caused by all of the above, plus rising fuel costs.

Religion aside, history teaches us that the last thing to give way when civilization falls is trade. It’s the mutual relationship between neighboring communities, domestic and abroad, that ensures our survival for the long haul while promoting peaceful relations. If this weren’t true, much of the world would still be small farming communities with virtually no need for money. But I digress… when it comes to consciousness, it seems that the masses are focused on pop culture while the “powers that be” remain hidden in plain sight.

What Would Ted Turner Do?

If a classic meat-eating, salt-of-the-earth, winner-take-all capitalist like Ted Turner were around today, my hunch is he’d be spending more time on his Montana ranch, far from the idiosyncratic masses seeking any means of distraction from the fear that governs the cogs in the social wheels. Why? Not because he hates them, but because he doesn’t wait for other people to explain things to him. Surely there are millionaire survivalists today who take great pains to cultivate their public persona while hedging their bets with compounds in New Zealand, for example.

In short, at the glacial pace that society moves, anyone who is driven to have, be, do, create, or experience more has to learn to be guided from within. Who doesn’t have that little voice in their head that refuses to be pacified by the “leaders” who take turns gracing the world stage every four years? The real members of this planet are busy thinking for themselves and making preparations for the future based on credible data extrapolated from long-term trends. The same thought process that wins in the stock market is responsible for the survival of modern humans, despite all the mass-extinction events and cyclical problems of war, disease, plagues, pestilence, famine, and all the other problems that challenged our ancestors.

So, to the masses, we say, “Hope you enjoy the film. Now here are a bunch of things to consider buying.” Meanwhile, to the millionaire survivalists already planning to survive even bigger challenges to their existence, what does it matter what anyone says?

How Millionaire Survivalists in NYC Expect to Flee when the SHTF

How Millionaire Survivalists in NYC Expect to Flee when the SHTF

The Big Apple has it all when it comes to convenient access to commercialism, but that has its disadvantages. When COVID struck this over-populated city, it created a localized version of the pandemic that was far worse than the national average. This has given New Yorkers a taste of the exponential meltdown that can occur at a moment’s notice. So, if a nuclear attack, another 9/11, or even a hoax believable enough to elicit mass pandemonium should render the streets undrivable, buildings unusable, and aircraft unreachable, then it’s time for “Plan B.”

Today on Rob Raskins’ Millionaire Survivalist, we’ll take a look at Plan B Marine, the “insurance policy” against millionaire prepper concerns about being stuck in the city should an EOTWAWKI scenario come to pass. When air and land are off the table, all that remains is the sea.

Chris Dowhie is co-owner of Plan B Marine, an NYC-based company that maintains a fleet of 50+ knot speed boats docked around Manhattan island. As a nautical professional and entrepreneur, Plan B Marine provides a service that fills a need where demand has deep pockets to pay for the privilege. Though Chris doesn’t personally subscribe to “conspiracy theories,” he’s well aware of the degree to which catastrophic events like 9/11, the blackouts, and COVID have given rise to a culture of practical resistance to the resulting loss of personal and social control that follows.

The Price

Plan B Marine’s wealthy clients pay upwards of $7500K per month to lease their own military-grade escape boat, so they not only have the option to flee at a moment’s notice but have a plan in place. Lease options include daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly. Boat options include the 25” Safe Boat Defender, the 7-Meter Zodiac inflatable dingy with T-Top, the Willard Sea-Force 700 dingy, and the 33 Safe Boat Interceptor built to US Navy standards and powered by triple 1K HP engines.


The events of a catastrophic emergency are regulated by port authorities and emergency escape protocols that determine who does what. In theory, Plan B Marine’s services merely provide a luxury alternative to members during a minor emergency that could cause gridlock traffic for several hours. This may only translate into an “undelayed” trip across town by way of crossing the Hudson. In reality, the rule of the jungle is those who can, will. Those who can’t won’t.

When danger happens, precious moments are available to make a snap decision. We all know that remaining calm and making a series of educated choices to get out of harm’s way can determine who lives and who dies. Those with a plan in place have the advantage. Everyone else will wait until authorities instruct them. As to whether not to recommend Plan B, I’m of the mind that it’s better to ask for forgiveness than beg for permission.
