The theory that the super elite have turned into “Doomsday preppers” stockpiling supplies in preparation for the end of the world as we know it, is more than just a theory, and the latest properties purchased by the world’s top billionaires give insight into how they plan to survive.

The cause of such an event is debatable—will an asteroid collide with Earth, or will nuclear warfare break out between two colliding super powers?

Forbes Contributor Jim Dobson noted that in addition to preparing for future escape plans with ‘vacation homes’ in remote locations,” and “private planes ready to depart at a moment’s notice,” some of the wealthiest individuals in the U.S. are buying large amounts of land that can be used for self-survival.


Tele-Communications CEO John Malone owns a total of 2.2 million acres, with massive amounts in Wyoming and Colorado. CNN founder Ted Turner owns 2 million acres that include land in Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico and North Dakota. AEG CEO Philip Anschutz owns 434,000 acres in Wyoming. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos owns 400,000 acres of land in Texas. And sports mogul Stan Kroenke owns 225,162 acres of land in Montana.

Dobson also noted that this type of preparation extends worldwide to moguls in Australia and New Zealand who are buying massive amounts of farmland. Because money and precious metals would be virtually useless following a major disaster, self-sustainable territory and the tools that come with it appear to be the new hot commodity.

The series of “Doomsday maps” produced by Gordon-Michael Scallion with the Matrix Institute give insight into what the world would look like if a massive Asteroid or comet collided with Earth, and led to a polar shift that resulted in a cataclysmic change. While it is all still speculative, NASA’s Asteroid watch website estimates that such an event could happen as early as 2021.

As The Free Thought Project reported in February, the concept of the super-rich preparing to survive a worldwide disaster is nothing new—former Facebook product manager Antonio García Martínez and Reddit CEO Steve Huffman are among the moguls openly preparing for a major crisis.

“I think, to some degree, we all collectively take it on faith that our country works, that our currency is valuable, the peaceful transfer of power—that all of these things that we hold dear work because we believe they work. While I do believe they’re quite resilient, and we’ve been through a lot, certainly we’re going to go through a lot more,” Huffman said.

The U.S. government is also preparing for the worst. In March 2012, former President Obama signed an executive order titled, “National Defense Resources Preparedness” into law, giving agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Agriculture, Department of Labor and Department of Defense the authority to seize resources, materials and facilities it deems necessary to ensure national defense.

Whether a worldwide crisis is caused by an asteroid hitting the Earth or a nuclear war breaking out, the decisions made by the elite should always act as signals for the public. When the individuals who already have massive amounts of money are preparing for a time when money is no longer valuable and self-sustainable farmland is the most precious resource, then it is time to start paying attention.

    • dell

      thats why they got guns

      • disqus_KzdM6cGc6h

        Wrong….. WE THE PEOPLE have the GUNS.

  • Dillon Jackson

    How will they defend all that land? Who is going to grow their crops for them? Hunt for them? Did we factor in maybe some 20 to 40 million gun owners becoming partisans? Idiots that think money will see it their post apocolyptic existence are in for a surprise.

      the nwo crowd are the ones destroying the planet and the people are allowing it. they have underground facilities all over with years of supplies. they want the earth reduced in population to 500M and using our food, water, and air to do so. in other words there is no need for more tthan 500M

    • WeAreYourGods

      The powerful will find something to use a commodity in the wake of collapse and surround themselves with private armies, they already do it in the third world. There will be no shortage of those willing to do that work in exchange for some stability for their families or themselves. Think feudal Japan or Europe with warlords, fiefdoms and a massive class of peasants.

      • TOPDOG1

        You sound as if you are referring also to the subjugated working stock of police worshipers here in the U.S.

        • WeAreYourGods

          In that reality, everybody including the private soldiers are subjugated working stock, scraping for food and water. However, those in the current protected classes like police and those who worship them and aspire to be protected will be in for a rude awakening, courtesy of their fellow peasants.

      The Globalists, all think that they can survive based on what they are worth and what they have. I plan to help those near me if things go south, have been preparing for some time. THAT Being said, if the Good Lord calls me home, I am happy to do just that. But The LORD knows my heart and knows that I want to be one that fights for truth, liberty, freedom and helps those who don’t know Christ. All We can Do is Witness to those who are in need and Let Christ win them.

      I think, I don’t know, but I think these billionaires are counting on wiping much of the population out, via vaccines as Bill Gates has suggested or via other means, and having robots to replace human workers.

      • disqus_KzdM6cGc6h

        Yes, Gates Openly admitted it not too long ago. He is a CREEP.

      • Charles Green

        Like Jeff bezos and his robot hobby.

    • tedskam55

      so are idiots who think their AR’s and their Mossbergs will make them safe.
      Hey Dillon, anyone smart and resourceful enough to buy 200,000 acres in preparation, probably has a contingency plan for every swingin dick who believes himself to be Negan from the Walking Dead.
      Do yourself a favor. Watch this.

    • billdeserthills

      Barbed wire, electric fencing, motion activated cameras, patrol animals, drones, guards and whatever the next guy says

  • Madmotorman™ ® The Mad Hatter

    Asteroid hits and results in Yellowstone’s super volcano erupting wiping out the rest of US. There you go, game over.

    • Steve Rusk

      Don’t forget the nukes, someone is sure to fire them off during all of this. Can’t have a decent apocalypse without the fireworks.

      • Madmotorman™ ® The Mad Hatter

        True, silly me how could I forget.

  • billdeserthills

    Sounds like all this buying must be good for the economy–You all are welcome to fight for all the post-apocalypse stuff ya want, I’m planning on not being around for it

  • Wzrd

    They are buying shelters to protect themselves from us. Environmentalism is a business. Its not to protect the earth. Its control and money sold to us through fear. You need a unifying enemy to bring about world government. Humans themselves are the enemy therefore they need to be controlled and managed completely.

  • M Barrado

    Fools, they will not be able to stop the Zombie apocalypse!!!

  • billdeserthills

    Rich people buy stuff all the time, it doesn’t mean anything–They don’t need an excuse to buy stuff, they like to use their money to make money with, it’s called ‘investing’. We little people do it too, just not on so grand of a scale

  • your papa

    and why yous til mark Serbia as Yugoslavia? and why is all other countries from x yugoslavia marked different?

  • Those maps are crazy fiction. Don’t get suckered into the global warming / ice caps melting fraud. Peace out
