"And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven,
saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....

Panic, Anxiety Spark Rush to Build Luxury Bunkers for L.A.'s Superrich

Panic, Anxiety Spark Rush to Build Luxury Bunkers for L.A.'s Superrich

Ingrid Schmidt

Oscar winners, sports stars and Bill Gates are building lavish bunkers — with amenities ranging from a swimming pool to a bowling alley — as global anxiety fuels sales and owners "could be the next Adam and Eve." 


Given the increased frequency of terrorist bombings and mass shootings and an under-lying sense of havoc fed by divisive election politics, it's no surprise that home security is going over the top and hitting luxurious new heights. Or, rather, new lows, as the average depth of a new breed of safe haven that occupies thousands of square feet is 10 feet under or more. Those who can afford to pull out all the stops for so-called self-preservation are doing so — in a fashion that goes way beyond the submerged corrugated metal units adopted by reality show "preppers" — to prepare for anything from nuclear bombings to drastic climate-change events. Gary Lynch, GM at Rising S Bunkers, a Texas-based company that specializes in underground bunkers and services scores of Los Angeles residences, says that sales at the most upscale end of the market — mainly to actors, pro athletes and politicians (who require signed NDAs) — have increased 700 percent this year compared with 2015, and overall sales have risen 150 percent. "Any time there is a turbulent political landscape, we see a spike in our sales. Given this election is as turbulent as it is, we are gearing up for an even bigger spike," says marketing director Brad Roberson of sales of bunkers that start at $39,000 and can run $8.35 million or more (FYI, a 12-stall horse shelter is $98,500).
Adds Mike Peters, owner of Utah-based Ultimate Bunker, which builds high-end versions in California, Texas and Minnesota: "People are going for luxury [to] live underground because they see the future is going to be rough. Everyone I've talked to thinks we are doomed, no matter who is elected." Robert Vicino, founder of Del Mar, Calif.-based Vivos, which constructs upscale community bunkers in Indiana (he believes coastal flooding scenarios preclude bunkers being safely built west of the Rockies), says, "Bill Gates has huge shelters under every one of his homes, in Rancho Santa Fe and Washington. His head of security visited with us a couple years ago, and for these multibillionaires, a few million is nothing. It's really just the newest form of insurance."

A hidden door by Creative Home Engineering leads to a secret passageway that connects to an underground bunker.
Rising S Bunkers installed a 37-room, 9,000-square-foot complex in Napa Valley for an Academy Award-winning client that rang in at $10.28 million, with a bowling alley, sauna, jacuzzi, shooting range and an ultra-large home theater. Swimming pools, greenhouses, game rooms and gyms are other amenities offered. This year, on another Napa Valley property, the company constructed a $9 million, 7,600-square-foot compound with horse stables and accommodations for 12, along with four escape tunnels leading to outlets on the estate, multiple hidden rooms — in case "you let someone in whom you do not fully trust," says Lynch — and an aboveground safe house "disguised as a horse barn." The company also is designing a $3 million bunker for "a major sports figure from Southern California."

The company's best-selling bunkers for L.A. are 10 by 50 feet, start at $112,000 and have their own power sources, water supplies and air-filtration systems: "These complexes accommodate families of four or five and are self-sustaining," says Roberson, adding: "You can pretty much put a palace underground anywhere there is physically enough room." Regardless, Ellia Thompson, chair of land use practice at Ervin Cohen & Jessup in Beverly Hills, notes that zoning guidelines vary throughout L.A., so one should check with the city department of building and safety about permits: "A special permit may be required if you are digging out more dirt than certain basement quantities."
Business has doubled in the past year at Ultimate Bunker, which just built a $10 million complex on a 700-acre property a few hours north of Minneapolis for a client "known for television, who has his own show," says Peters. Two 1,000-square-foot bunkers (one for storage) are connected by 300 feet of tunnels to the main 6,800-square-foot home as well as three guesthouses that each boast a $200,000 bunker "to take care of his family and friends," says Peters. "It's like an underground mansion with more mansions on top of it."
Al Corbi, president and founder of S.A.F.E. (Strategically Armored & Fortified Environments), with offices in West Hollywood, says that his most spectacular projects were $100 million subterranean residences, one for a global venture capitalist and the other for an East Coast developer to mimic the Universal CityWalk promenade, with a pizzeria and wellness outpost that, he says, "resembles a Burke Williams day spa." Corbi says both bunkers protect from nuclear holocaust (8 feet of soil blocks radioactive fallout), pandemic (a positive-pressure air system with HEPA filters keeps contaminants out), electromagnetic pulses and solar flares (using a metal encasement), among other threats. "Power technology has improved tremendously thanks in part to Tesla and lithium-ion batteries that only degrade a maximum of 10 percent after 30 years," says Corbi. "And now there is food with a 25-year minimum shelf life. [The owners] could be the next Adam and Eve." (Note to L.A. chefs, however: The rations are grim, ranging from beef Stroganoff to chili.)

When it comes to the details of secret passageways and hidden doors, many in Hollywood turn to Arizona-based Creative Home Engineering. "We've seen year-over-year growth of about 20 percent, but perhaps more telling is an increasing percentage of clientele who need their secret door to employ high-security features," notes president Steve Humble, who says before, 60 percent of secret doors in cigar rooms, home theaters, children's bedrooms and the like were for novelty value. "Nowadays, 80 percent are used for security. In the past year, I have performed installations inside two nuclear-protected complexes with more than 10 secret doors each, one in the L.A. area owned by a plastic surgeon."
Film fantasies play a part in the choice of secret entrances. "Many of my clients come to me knowing what movie secret door they would like duplicated," says Humble, who cites as top inspirations Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, the Batman and James Bond franchises, Mr. & Mrs. Smith and Goonies, on which a popular access control device that "requires that a certain sequence of notes be played on the piano to get the door to open" is based. There's also Get Smart: "At this moment, we are converting a phone booth [inside a private residence] so that when the user dials the correct number, the back panel opens to grant access to a secure area." He adds: "I can tell you that we've built secret doors for many of the most recognizable and highly awarded directors and celebrities in Hollywood. There are a lot of Oscars and Emmys tucked away safely behind my secret doors."

1. A floor plan for an $8.35 million, 6,000-square-foot bunker from Texas company Rising S Bunkers includes a decked-out game room.

2. The largest swimming pool that Rising S has built measures 40 feet.

3. Fitness rooms are a must to compensate for a lack of outside activity.

4. Natural light tubes and ultraviolet LED lamps promote growth in underground gardens of consumable plants and vegetables.

5. Theaters seat as many as 20 people and come with 10-foot screens.

6. Rising S has seen garages with 15 vehicles, including Rolls-Royces, muscule cars and armored personnel carriers (one client has three).

Insider Warns: 'Everyone I've Talked To Thinks We're Doomed' - 'They Say The Future Is Going To Be Rough'

- 'None Can Escape What Is Coming To The Earth'

According to the new story from Ingrid Schmidt over at the Hollywood Reporter that the Drudge Report linked to this morning, panic and anxiety have sparked a mad rush to build luxury bunkers for the 'superrich' in Los Angeles, California. Just the latest story we've read about the 'elite' preparing for something huge that has many of them alarmed, their story tells us in the 1st paragraph these bunker owners think they 'could be the next Adam and Eve'.

Their story also tells us that according to Gary Lynch, the GM of Rising S Bunkers, bunker sales have increased 700% in 2016 over 2015. Their bunkers start at a low end of $39,000 and go up to $8.35 million or more and while 'Trumpocalypse' is on the minds of many, "Everyone I've talked to thinks we are doomed, no matter who is elected" according to Mike Peters, owner of Ultimate Bunker out of Utah. Ultimate Bunkers builds high-end bunkers in California, Texas and Minnesota and Peters also added: "People are going for luxury [to] live underground because they see the future is going to be rough."

According to Robert Vicino, founder of Vivos Underground Bunker Systems, people such as Bill Gates and other elitists are building luxury bunkers under each of their properties and they look at such investments as a form of 'insurance' - a few million dollars is nothing to them if their investment allows them to survive what so many are concerned is coming.
Why are so many of the superrich so concerned about danger in their futures? "Local and global terrorist-related attacks are the main driving force for the increase in business." According to Tom Gaffney, president of Gaffco Ballistics, a company out of Vermont that has done a lot of work for celebrities living in New York and California, building safehouses starting at $250,000: "Our clients tend to have a higher sense of the lack of security in the world today."What do the 'superrich' know that most of America doesn't know? With Islamic terror on the minds of many, including both the FBI and the DHS, Susan Duclos told us earlier today America should be on a code red alert between now and at least the election day as the 'trojan horse infiltration' of America ahead of the globalists end game reaches a peak.

Warning us of 7 Afghan soldiers who simply 'disappeared' in America, 3 of them on the same weekend that a series of terror attacks were carried out in New York, would trained Islamic killers on the loose in America cause the 'superrich' in America to run to their bunkers or would it have to be something much, much more?

Terra Vivos underground bunkers tells us that deep underground bunkers are created for almost any catastrophe and as we learn, having at least 8' of soil in between the bunker and any kind of radioactive contamination helps to protect from nuclear weapons attacks. With talk of WW3 now everywhere after Donald Trump brought up that possibility in the debates on Monday night, we're not the least bit surprised to hear more and more people are preparing for the worst. Also quite interestingly, Vivos mentions 'the anticipated affects of Planet X/Nibiru'. More proof of planetary apocalypse coming? From Vivos:

The central theme to all catastrophic and epic life-threatening events has typically always been to find shelter underground. The soil of the Earth itself can provide the best shelter for most catastrophes, deep below the surface. Vivos shelters are deep underground, fully self-contained complexes designed to survive or substantially mitigate virtually any catastrophe, or threat scenario including natural or manmade disasters. Whatever the threat, our shelters are built and engineered to withstand or mitigate just about everything from a pole shift, to super volcano eruptions, solar flares, earthquakes, tsunamis, pandemics, asteroid strikes, the anticipated affects of Planet X/Nibiru, and manmade threats including nuclear explosions, a reactor melt down, biological or chemical disasters, terrorism and even widespread anarchy.

The Vivos global network of hardened, deep underground, survival shelters is being built to survive virtually all future catastrophes and disasters. Co-own a membership interest in one of our community shelters or buy your own private underground shelter for the ultimate life-assurance, safety and security for your family. Vivos shelters are considered to be the strongest, most fortified, blast-proof shelters available. Our Quantum underground survival shelters and bunkers are hardened, underground shelters designed for installation on your private property – anywhere in the world. Then stock it with freeze-dried foods and canned meats, along with all of your survival gear to survive for one year or more.

Be ready for the predicted planetary alignment, doomsday, the Rapture, the end times, or Armageddon. If you believe in the prophecies and predictions of the Bible, Nostradamus, the Third Secret of Fatima, the visions of Edgar Cayce, and all of the current signs of an economic collapse, future nuclear war, WW3, a pandemic, an EMP power outage, a potential asteroid collision, Nibiru, Planet X, Fukushima’s eventual meltdown and widespread global radiation, the coming pole shift and/or major earth changes, it is time to prepare!


According to the recent story from this News Corp Australia Network story, the first shots were recently fired at Dabiq, Syria. While most Americans have probably never heard of Dabiq, according to Islamic prophecy, Dabiq is where the 'final battle of Armageddon' will begin. Dabiq has long been associated with the 'end days' according to the Islamic State and they fully expect that the apocalyptic battle between Christianity and Islam that will begin there will lead to the end of the world.

Coincidentally, or not, according to a new story from the Daily Express, a rare black moon is rising on Friday, September 30th and as this story from Now The End Begins tells us, some are concerned we're witnessing another sign of the 'end of days' with 'worldwide destruction' and the 2nd Coming of Jesus as also heard in the 3rd video below from Above Science. While 'black moons' occur roughly every 32 months, we're told this black moon is different as the 1st day of September brought a 'ring of fire solar eclipse.' This rare black moon has many people thinking of Biblical prophecy:

“Those signs are letting us know that Jesus is soon coming. We are approaching the end of our world and the end of life on Earth for all human being. Every day, we have to come closer to our saviour Jesus Christ. For none can escape for what is coming for the Earth.”


According to the US government, the month of September is 'National Preparedness Month' and as this video that Steve Quayle linked to on his website earlier today told us, at 2:20 pm EDT today, a nationwide test of FEMA's emergency alert system was being done. According to the Emergency Management Communications Center, the first ever nationwide activation of the emergency alert system took place back on November 9th of 2011, exactly 5 years before the day after the upcoming election on November 8th.

In the first video below we see directly inside one of the world's biggest bunkers in a 40+ minute documentary from Mega Engineering while in the 2nd video below we get to see inside of a bunker now on sale for $17.5 million dollars in the state of Georgia that was built in 1969 by the US Army Corps of Engineers. The 3rd video below gives us the story of this 'apocalyptic black moon' that arrives on Friday while the final video below takes a look at the latest events around the world from just the past several days that have so many convinced we're now living in the last days. 

As this new story from Mac Slavo over at SHTFPlan tells us, while it may be that the end of the world is nigh, the elite will be living the high life underground, where they can be much closer to 'their master'. There must be a reason they're getting so prepared Slavo tells us, and that in itself is reason enough that we should too.
