Real News That the MSM Does Not Have Time To Report

As Trump derangement hysteria continues to sweep through the hallowed halls of ABC, NBC, The New York Times et al, real news that may be of significant global consequence is buried. Here is a prime example. I’ll bet you have not heard one word about this. From Zerohedge: Concerns Grow About A Nuclear “Incident” In Europe After Spike In Radioactive Iodine Levels by Tyler Durden Feb 20, 2017 2:31 AM Concerns about a potential, and so far unsubstantiated, nuclear “incident”, reportedly in the vicinity of the Arctic circle, spread in the past week after trace amounts of radioactive Iodine-131 of … Continue reading

Chuck U. Schumer Destroys Bank, Blames Republicans, Hides Behind Voters’ Collective Amnesia

This cautionary tale is a variation on The Limbaugh Theorem, whereby a powerful progressive Democrat politician runs his big, ignorant mouth about a private sector situation, creates a disaster, then stands aside and clucks about the problem, whilst blaming “sinister, invisible forces” in the GOP for the problem.  Starring Chuck U. Schumer and the ever-lovable and brilliant Elizabeth Warren, this tale reveals economic destruction caused by a meddling progressive politician who has managed to evade all penalties for his actions, let alone accepting any blame. Back in 2008 there was a major bank named IndyMac.  This bank worked with Fannie … Continue reading

Oh The Irony Of Obamaland

OH THE IRONY OF OBAMALAND We have been inundated for months and months about the “best option” nuclear agreement with Iran.  Then in pops Putin to muddy the water on what more than half of US citizens know is a bad deal.  So out of curiosity where does that leave the pending deal with Iran? Well, here is the irony…our government is so concerned about the success of this deal that the Department of Health and Human Services has gone to a great deal of trouble and time to research new burn treatment therapies. From the HHS website, we found the following … Continue reading

“Yes, THEY Can”. But I Won’t

When is a can of beans more than just a can of beans? When it’s a weapon of self-defense for students to throw at an armed intruder who has just entered their school.That’s one scenario Valley, Alabama, officials are considering as part of their training to respond to school shootings:   Though it may strike some as an insignificant and perhaps even silly response to a deadly problem, it’s no joke at W.F. Burns Middle School. It’s part of active shooter response training offered by the ALICE Training Institute, a company founded by a former police officer and former elementary … Continue reading

THIS Could Be BAD News.

BUT, it just MIGHT turn out to be GREAT news, if you are an investor, or wish for our currencies to return to a gold standard. I’m all FOR ending the WORTHLESS stacks of paper considered as “legal tender”. Great article from Jason Scheurer at   The Most Important Election You Haven’t Heard Of by  Jason Scheurer  15 Nov 2014, 1:23 PM PDT   In less than three weeks, the most important election of the year will take place in Switzerland, and you haven’t heard of it. While the U.S. focuses on the recent Republican victory, the financial markets … Continue reading

Wonder WHY We Have Not Seen THIS Report ?

Pretty obvious answer here. The report’s AUTHORS would LOSE a TON of donations if it WERE to become widespread knowledge. Well, rest assured WE here at H&F will do our part to help SPREAD the word. Kind of like jam on toast. THICK. Anthony Watts and Alexej Buergin at have the story. World Disasters Report for 2013 – lowest number of catastrophies and deaths in 10 years. Anthony Watts / October 18, 2014 Alexej Buergin writes in WUWT Tips and Notes about a report from the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) that puts climate … Continue reading

From The “GEE, IMAGINE THAT ” File.

Over the past 15 or 20 years, we have been told by our “betters” in academe, and government, as well as various frauds, and shysters, that man-made global warming is THE cause of any and all weather related events. I think this study, out of the United Kingdom, puts the lie to that notion. Of course, all who believe said report will have to check themselves in at the Ed “Sgt. Schultz” Global Warming Deniers Re-Education Facility. You read, and decide. From our friend Michael Bastasch at The Daily ANALYSIS: Growth, Not Global Warming, To Blame For Disaster Damage. … Continue reading

“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

“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

“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

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

           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
