“SHTF” Survival – Entertainment – 7.20.14

Hello and Welcome to our Final edition of SHTF Survival sunday – 7.20.14 Now that dust has cleared and all the serious stuff has been hashed over, and put to rest (I hope), we can focus on some of the small things that’ll keep us sane. Entertainment. We could sit down with a good book and read (if we have them) but that requires light. And if there’s light, there’s chores that could be done. Kind of a “catch 22”, eh? What if we’re done for the day? What are we to do in our idle times? When the chores … Continue reading

“SHTF” Survival – Wednesday 7.16.14

       Are We Next Victim of the Yemen-style Blackout? SurvivoPedia In case you haven’t heard, Al-Queda is back on the rise. The ISIS (Islamic State of Iran and Syria) which has recently renamed itself the “Islamic State” (IS), is actually a splinter group of Al-Queda. So, not only are they on the rise, but they are taking back territory which the United States won and which our president has decided to abandon. Now, I realize that President Obama has declared on several occasions that Al-Queda is on the run and all but destroyed. However, we all know that … Continue reading

Muslims, Using Our Laws to Defeat us…and You Thinks It’s Bad Now? Just Wait…

If you think things are bad NOW, just give it some time. With the help of our glorious Führer, WE, the American citizenry, will be the slaves of islam in our own country. Have doubts? Think again…. Even Christ said to Paul, “sell your purse and buy a sword”, meaning, “defend yourselves”….. …and here is where that RIGHT of “self-defense” is sanctified….. ~Now, when you’re approached by those morons who would argue that we should “turn the other cheek” rather than fight, you have Scripture that says otherwise. No, I’m NOT proselytizing, rather, I’m making your GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS to self-defense, known. … Continue reading

“SHTF” Survival – Communications – 7.13.14

Good Morning, Folks and Welcome to this Sunday’s edition of SHTF. Today we’ll discuss “Communications”, something we all take for granted. In this day and age, we’re all accustomed to being in touch with our friends and loved ones at the touch of a button. We talk, text, message at will, not giving a thought to what would happen when it’s gone. Now what? No phones, no cell service, no internet, no radio, no TV, no browser to look up your favorite ice cube recipe, no nothing. We’ve all gone through periods when the power’s out, and so is the … Continue reading

“SHTF” Survival – Wednesday 7.9.14

           Survival Skills to Learn from the Indian Tribes Native Americans are, perhaps, the best example on the planet of a people who lived solely off the land while protecting it for future generations. They held the belief that we don’t own the land; we are simply borrowing it from our children. In other words, they lived sustainably, protected their resources, and survived (and thrived) while doing no harm to the planet. This made them survivors of the highest order, so today we’re going to talk about survival skill you can learn from Indian tribes. Meat … Continue reading

“SHTF” Survival – Fuel & Travel 7.6.14

Hey Folks, Welcome to this Sundays’ edition of SHTF – Survival. Today We’re gonna focus on Fuel and Travel. Now, we all need to get this “reality” into our heads once and for all: Unless you own an oil refinery and an oil well, you’re gonna be walking or riding a bike or a beast of burden OR you’re smart enough to find an alternative. There are a few, should you have the capacity to be inventive. One is making your own Bio-diesel and this will all depend on where you decide to take up residense. If you’re close enough … Continue reading

Independence Lost

Independence Lost   by Patrick J. Buchanan  Not until a year after Lexington did the Continental Congress muster the resolve to declare the 13 colonies free and independent states, no longer subject to Parliament or Crown.Not for five years after July 4, 1776, did George Washington’s army truly attain America’s independence at Yorktown.Even then, Washington and his aide Alexander Hamilton knew that the 13 states, while politically independent, were dependent upon Europe for the necessities of their national life. Without French ships and guns, French muskets and troops, the Americans could not have forced Gen. Cornwallis’ surrender at Yorktown.Cornwallis would … Continue reading

Guess what else makes you an “Islamophobe”

Acts17Apologetics ~My thanks to Bonni at www.barenakedislam.com for this wonderful tidbit. I guess we can now discard our libraries, pull our kids out of school and cover them with pillow cases and bed sheets. Bahallah would be most pleased, right? Well, F#$K him and his goat molesting, murdering, pedophilic sot, “homo-ham-sandwich”, too~!!! (I hope I pissed someone off ’cause I’m furious!) Janyk

“SHTF” Survival – Wednesday 7.2.14

              Are You Prepared for the 2014 Pandemic? If you think that a pandemic would not be possible in 2014, in modern society, think again. In fact, the last pandemic happened just a few years ago, in 2009. It was the swine flu pandemic which mostly affected areas of Africa and Southeast Asia. However, it managed to kill around 280,000 people. The danger is still very real. New influenza viruses keep appearing, while Ebola virus, the Rift Valley fever and the Lassa fever virus are still dangerous. Where the Danger Comes From A pandemic is … Continue reading

“SHTF” Survival: Gardening & Farming 6.29.14

Hey Folks and welcome to this Sunday’s edition of SHTF Survival: Gardening & Farming. Over the past several weeks we’ve talked about many issues we’d face when the SHTF and one the most crucial of these topics is “food”; where to get it, how to store and how to grow it. We’ve discussed growing things on roof tops and in green houses, when land is scarce, but we’ve never discussed what the situation would be after the “dust settled” and life is thrown back into the late 1800’s. When gas was no longer available to run the tractors, what do … Continue reading

“SHTF” Survival – Wednesday 6.25.14

Emergency Medicine: Treating Animal Bites Correctly Most people have, at some time of their life, run afoul of some ornery critter. In the United States, there are millions of animal bites every year resulting in hundreds of thousands of ER visits. As this is Dog Bite Prevention Week, we’ll discuss animal bites by mammals. Although wild animals will bite when threatened or ill (or to protect their young or territory), most avoid humans if at all possible. Domestic pets, such as cats, dogs, and small rodents are the culprits in the grand majority of cases. Dog bites, the most common, are responsible for tens of millions of … Continue reading

“SHTF” Survival – Medication / First Aid 6.22.14

Hey Folks and welcome to another edition of SHTF Survival. Today, I’m going to give some of you some rather controversial advise and say the following: (DISCLAIMER- The suggestions made herein are a personal opinion and are not to be construed as instructional. The reader bears any and all responsibilities for their own actions or in-actions.) 1. IF YOU CAN, try to, alternately, skip your meds and build a stockpile. I’ve been doing this for some time and have nearly a 6 month supply of crucial meds saved. This means you have to watch what you’re doing and eating. If … Continue reading

“SHTF” Survival – Wednesday – 6.18.14

With a H/T to HardNox, here’s a item we think everyone could make good use of. One of the basic tools everyone should have in their trunk, or somewhere nearby, is the long known, yet much maligned and/or overlooked, Machete. While there are many styles and shapes, the machete is an all-in-one tool. It can, and often does, replace the ax, the knife, the sword and, in times of need, the E-Tool for digging holes. As a tool, it’s invaluable. It’s lightweight and easily packs into any backpack or hangs on any belt or cross-chest strap. As a defensive weapon, … Continue reading

The Muslim Brotherhood and the Aryan Brotherhood

Right Side News Written by William Michael Published on Saturday, 14 June 2014 The West welcomed political change in the Middle East, the so-called “Arab Spring,” from the outset.  After decades of rule by dictatorship, western leaders, many with the support of their citizens, hoped to usher in a new era of democracy.  However, from Libya to Egypt to Syria, it was soon evident that the same forces who opposed the strongmen nationalists were responsible for atrocities of their own design.  Governments that rose to power in Egypt and Libya systematically oppressed their citizens, creating environments of chaos and anarchy. … Continue reading

           DIY Project: How to Build the Perfect Sling In a time of major crisis do not overlook the simple cord sling as a weapon or a hunting tool. It would fit nicely in your bug out bag because it is lightweight, easy to store and easy to use. Rocks or other projectiles to be used as ammo can also be easily picked up wherever you happen to be. Even though the sling became less important as guns and other weapons became more available, slings are still used in Palestine and many other parts of the … Continue reading

“SHTF” Survival: Defense – Personal 6.8.14

To completely prepare you for self-defense would be an arduous task and result in my writing numerous volumes of tedious tactics most folks would probably never understand. So, instead, I’m going to cut to the chase and present a few videos of some easily acquired skills. While I’d love nothing more than to see everyone become familiar with “a” martial art, but I know it’s improbable. Martial arts take a long study. Unless you’re agile, and able to execute some of those moves, don’t bother. The only other option is to get a gun or a weapon and become proficient … Continue reading

Urban Survival: 8 Skills You Can’t Live Without Survivopedia.com By Bill White Much of what is written about survival assumes a wilderness survival situation. There are several advantages to trying to survive in the wild, mostly that of not having to worry about all the other people around you. On top of that, you have the availability of all the resources that nature provides for you. On the other hand, when trying to survive in an urban situation, you have the exact opposite; basically no natural resources as well as a lot of other people around you who are vying for … Continue reading

World Bank warns of food riots as rising food prices push world populations toward revolt.

NaturalNews by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger Friday, May 30, 2014 A new report issued by the World Bank (1) warns that food prices are skyrocketing globally, with wheat up 18 percent and corn up 12 percent this quarter. Ukraine, one of the largest wheat exporters in the world, has suffered a 73 percent increase in domestic wheat costs. Argentina has seen wheat prices skyrocket 70 percent. According to the World Bank, these price increases have been caused primarily by three factors: 1) Sharply higher demand for food in China, 2) U.S. drought conditions that hammered wheat production, and 3) unrest … Continue reading
