    Who are the ‘Elite’ outside of government – WW3 Will make billionaires broke and real estate worthless.

      The “elites” control the world gov’s. It may seem like the president is at the top, but those in charge go nameless where it concerns control of the masses. Once these places are built and the list is put out, it won’t matter what happens to the money. The elites and gov people who serve them will be included in these lavish underground estates. It’s a fact that most superpower nations have built bunkers for millions of civilians, yet in America, it’s only those on top and celebrities who will survive. Maybe some beautiful women will be taken down to serve as mistresses, but most will be left to fend for themselves.

        my bunker will be the big drain pipe that run’s under the road way,yes.i’ll be shareing it with the frog’s and snakes that live there while the elite will be sipping champagne and caviar in their underground hotel.

    Only the rich and powerful and those of the government and their familys will have access to these bunkers. There is not enough room for the population so it is your power and riches that will get you into these bunkers. However these things will not get you into heaven.

    Bunkers are for the power mad, elite, rich and high military, the food they store won’t last forever. Nuclear radiation can last for thousands of years. There will be nothing left above ground anyway, only total annihilation and darkness, so they are entombed in their underground coffins…..

      Russia has civil defense for the common citizen including blast shelters. The US has NO civil defense for the American people. Read Cresson Kearney’s Nuclear War Survival Skills and quit listening to on the beach nutzs!

    There’s a delicate balance in the world of shelter pet rescue.

    I would also add one further healing process which some people feel the need to help them
    find closure. This clause is ridiculous for several reasons:

    The way it sounds to me, we are heading into a recurring “Polar Shift”
    Every Country has built underground cities..to hide from the Shift. Now take that to the Bank.

      It could be anything could be the Thousand-Year storm or the Thousand Year drought thousand year drought brings the polar shift could be aliens coming from outer space to take over hahaha they could be once one nuclear warhead goes off they’re all going off screw the northern hemisphere for 10 years and they’re all going to go into hiding and screw the rest of the people because they don’t care about us but that’s cool I’m okay with it but know this the storm is coming there’s only one way to avoid avoid it put your faith in Jesus Christ he will protect you from the storm and if you don’t believe in Jesus Christ as your lord and savior well that’s okay it didn’t change nothing remember you will bow to him

    I have a feeling all these places will have bunker buster warheads targeted at them. Maybe 4 or five per location. They will become one large oven and perhaps it’s best. But why do they fail the 2000 miles of hardened tunnels that China has been building since the 60’s

    These aren’t hidden locations ( to the person who said should keep them secret ) Best thing is to be at sea with the hoses firing up the side

    Hi Dear, are you in fact visiting this website daily, if so after that you will definitely get pleasant know-how.

    while I understand these places are definitely something to be admired, don’t you think it’s stupid to be sharing them and their locations on the World Wide Web if they are truly meant as hiding places in war?

    • Teresa Reply

      No because they don’t care . People like us won’t be getting in anyway . They are to protect the elite .

      • Dehliaa Lopez1 Reply

        My thoughts exactly. You remember…Romney’s 47%. The bunkers were never built for use by normal individuals, just those normal yet elite people anyway.

      • Mona Reply

        You are spot on! they are for the self-proclaimed “elite” as they screw everyone else to get to their 500 million. Who knows? Perhaps Hillary, obama, Soros and others will be in their own “situation room” with a screen to watch it all. Soros said he felt “empowered” to do what he did against the Jews during the Holocaust. (He was born Jewish but is atheist.) This would be a really big empowering ego boost.

          I will watch you all burn because I am God nothing can kill me.

      It is one thing knowing where it is, it is a completely different matter getting inside when it matters. You will have to join the rest of us who put our heads between our knees hold your head there with your hands and kiss one’s ass goodbye.
