US Homeless Tunnel People Will Survive Nuclear War: Hundreds Of Thousands Of US Homeless People Live Underground In US Cities

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Did you know that there are thousands upon thousands of homeless people that are living underground beneath the streets of major U.S. cities?  It is happening in Las Vegas, it is happening in New York City and it is even happening in Kansas City.  As the economy crumbles, poverty in the United States isabsolutely exploding and so is homelessness.  In addition to the thousands of “tunnel people” living under the streets of America, there are also thousands that are living in tent cities, there are tens of thousands that are living in their vehicles and there are more than a million public school children that do not have a home to go back to at night.  The federal government tells us that the recession “is over” and that “things are getting better”, and yet poverty and homelessness in this country continue to rise with no end in sight.  So what in the world are things going to look like when the next economic crisis hits?

When I heard that there were homeless people living in a network of underground tunnels beneath the streets of Kansas City, I was absolutely stunned.  I have relatives that live in that area.  I never thought of Kansas City as one of the more troubled cities in the United States.

But according to the Daily Mail, police recently discovered a network of tunnels under the city that people had been living in…

Below the streets of Kansas City, there are deep underground tunnels where a group of vagrant homeless people lived in camps.

These so-called homeless camps have now been uncovered by the Kansas City Police, who then evicted the residents because of the unsafe environment.

Authorities said these people were living in squalor, with piles of garbage and dirty diapers left around wooded areas.

The saddest part is the fact that authorities found dirty diapers in the areas near these tunnels.  That must mean that babies were being raised in that kind of an environment.

Unfortunately, this kind of thing is happening all over the nation.  In recent years, the tunnel people of Las Vegas have received quite a bit of publicity all over the world.  It has been estimated that more than 1,000 people live in the massive network of flood tunnels under the city…

Deep beneath Vegas’s glittering lights lies a sinister labyrinth inhabited by poisonous spiders and a man nicknamed The Troll who wields an iron bar.

But astonishingly, the 200 miles of flood tunnels are also home to 1,000 people who eke out a living in the strip’s dark underbelly.

Some, like Steven and his girlfriend Kathryn, have furnished their home with considerable care – their 400sq ft ‘bungalow’ boasts a double bed, a wardrobe and even a bookshelf.

Could you imagine living like that?  Sadly, for an increasing number of Americans a “normal lifestyle” is no longer an option.  Either they have to go to the homeless shelters or they have to try to eke out an existence on their own any way that they can.

In New York City, authorities are constantly trying to root out the people that live in the tunnels under the city and yet they never seem to be able to find them all.  The following is from a New York Post articleabout the “Mole People” that live underneath New York City…

The homeless people who live down here are called Mole People. They do not, as many believe, exist in a separate, organized underground society. It’s more of a solitary existence and loose-knit community of secretive, hard-luck individuals.

The New York Post followed one homeless man known as “John Travolta” on a tour through the underground world.  What they discovered was a world that is very much different from what most New Yorkers experience…

In the tunnels, their world is one of malt liquor, tight spaces, schizophrenic neighbors, hunger and spells of heat and cold. Travolta and the others eat fairly well, living on a regimented schedule ofrestaurant leftovers, dumped each night at different times around the neighborhood above his foreboding home.

Even as the Dow hits record high after record high, poverty in New York City continues to rise at a very frightening pace.  Incredibly, the number of homeless people sleeping in the homeless shelters of New York City has increased by a whopping 19 percent over the past year.

In many of our major cities, the homeless shelters are already at maximum capacity and are absolutely packed night after night.  Large numbers of homeless people are often left to fend for themselves.

That is one reason why we have seen the rise of so many tent cities.

Yes, the tent cities are still there, they just aren’t getting as much attention these days because they do not fit in with the “economic recovery” narrative that the mainstream media is currently pushing.

In fact, many of the tent cities are larger than ever.  For example, you can check out a Reuters video about a growing tent city in New Jersey that was posted on YouTube at the end of March right here.  A lot of these tent cities have now become permanent fixtures, and unfortunately they will probably become much larger when the next major economic crisis strikes.

But perhaps the saddest part of all of this is the massive number of children that are suffering night after night.

      The Corrupt Business of Child Protective Services
      By Nancy Schaefer
      Georgia State Senate, 50th District
      revised September 25, 2008
      (Note: Senator Nancy Schaefer was murdered with her husband after making this speech about child protection services CPS corruption –she was about to reveal a more damaging report that named high-level American politicians and CPS pedophile slavery ring. They were set-up.)

      Child Abuse, Pedophiles and Child Protection Service Crimes – Conspiracy of Silence

      Mass CPS corruption


      CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES in the business of ADOPTION. The corruption for money. We can stop this madness.

      Not necessarily.

      Depending on size of bomb, location of impact and depth of sewers, tunnels and subway stations.

      If you do the research the military has bunkers that are over 2,000 feet below ground surface and 689 feet below sea surface.

      People putting in 30-40, even 100 ft bunkers will be (again depending on location and size of payload) roasted alive.

      In subways, the people will get what is called the popcorn effect, like blisters (looking like popcorn) all over their body.

      Telling y’all – we’re a bunch of two year olds with a lighted blow torch.

      Note: Cheyenne Mountain is built within a granite mountain about at about 3 miles deep if memory serves me, (page 3 Hidden in plain Sight by Richard Saunder) although military bunker depths are hard to find out because they are “classified” and again this sucker is surrounded deeply under and within a granite mountain.

      Putting a little bunker 40 feet deep isn’t going to do you squat. If you are really far away from the blast zone you may survive.

      Our government has spent tens of billions to protect it’s elite – not a penny for the tax payers.

      Bill and Melinda Gate’s “Seed Vault” is about 400 feet deep inside of a mountain (surrounded on all sides of a mountain makes a big difference as well as being located in God’s know Norway).

      If your within a blast zone you’re talking a shock wave, winds, and all the rest of it that even a puny 40-50 foot bunker (if you are in a blast zone) will be of no use to you.

      Now, on the eighth I got the top part of my right thumb burned (2nd degree/cooking) about the size of a quarter and let me tell you – after 18 hours of hard labor I jumped right up and walked to the toilet.

      After a C section from navel to pubic line I was up and walking around 2-1/2 hours after surgery.

      My doctors tell me I am very very tough – this “little second degree burn” is the most painful shi* (no other word will do) I have ever gone through.

      You are talking pain, real pain, 24/7 pain even after 2 Vicodin (Thank you Lord for drugs).

      If we have a nuclear war, I pray I’m at ground zero and get vaporized……………I don’t want to survive.

      Now, I had ER care, medicine,antibiotics, Silver Sulfate Cream, pain med and this was a tiny burn.

      Screen Name – You are right good reply.

      The system doesn’t care and what’s more some of the top people in Washington, London and many of our world leaders get their jollies from pedophilia.

      Senator Nancy Schaefer and her husband were about ready to expose a child sex slavery ring.

      Two books: “Thanks For The Memories” by Brice Taylor (aka Susan Ford) and “Trans Formation of America” by Cathy O’Brien named names, Prince Charles, the Clintons, the Bushs’, Walt Disney, Nixon, Kissinger, Bob Hope – not one of these people have taken either of these ladies to court.

      The system wants the break down of the family because the family unit is the strongest tie a human has. Break that tie, that allegiance and you have a more controllable worker drone.

      Part of the Communist system at work.

      No allegiance except to the state.

      That’s the way they want it.

      Also, when you traumatize a young child, they often fracture into alters, do the research into mind control – it’s all part of satan’s perverted new world order.

        Thanks for sharing, it’s funny, games like Fallout and stories like Hunger Games seem to be real popular these days, you’d think that they’re actually conditioning society for a life like that in a matter of time. Just made me wonder with North Korea and terrorism these days.

      I don’t blame them doing what they have to do to survive because for most of us nature gave us the instinct to survive, not roll over and die like the idiot elite seem to think.

      Those who live well enough will sure be tough when the SHTF but the idiot elite don’t realize, these people will be the vectors for old poverty diseases like TB making its way back into Main Street.

      Even in Medieval Europe the different classes amassed in church, and though that’s not where the classes meet today they do still meet, such as in the court system where one class sits in judgement of the other; then there are banks, superstores, post offices, gas stations and so forth.

      Just as the Nazis realized the squalor of the Jews risked passing onto them diseases like typhoid, so will rich people today catch poor peoples’ diseases because they are dumb fucks.
