    Netflix ^ | 1997 | Werner Herzog
    Dieter Dengler (May 22, 1938 – February 7, 2001) was a German-born United States Navy aviator during the Vietnam War and later a private aircraft test pilot and commercial airline pilot. He was one of two survivors, the other being Phisit Intharathat, out of seven prisoners of war (POWs) who escaped from a Pathet Lao prison camp in Laos. He was rescued after 23 days on the run[1] following six months of torture and imprisonment and was the first captured U.S. airman to escape enemy captivity during the Vietnam war.[2][3]

  • U.S. Electric Grid Vulnerable to Unprecedented Waves of Attack

    Free Beacon ^ | 3/27/18 | Adam Kredo
    The U.S. electric grid has become increasingly vulnerable to what the federal government is describing as an unprecedented wave of attacks that threatens to cripple the nation, according to a new investigative report that warns the energy industry is lagging in efforts to boost physical security of these critical sites. Amid a wave of increasing attacks across the country on key power stations, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation, or NERC, has been struggling to force the power industry to enact a series of security improvements meant to stop would-be attackers and terrorists from crippling the nation's infrastructure. Since 2014,...

    Now that the hoopla about the Trump Administration’s “poor response” to the hurricanes that hit the U.S. Territories in the Caribbean last September has died down considerably, and since my life has now almost returned to normal, I’d like to share my experiences during the storms and their aftermath. I do this to set some things straight about what actually happened, to share the practical things we did to deal and cope with the disaster in the hope that someone will find the information useful for their own preparedness, and also as a kind of mental dump of all the...
  • Official Washington flocking to Doomsday Camps

    Official Washington flocking to Doomsday Camps by Paul Bedard | March 19, 2018 08:16 AM A building network of backwoods doomsday camps around the country are pulling in members from affluent areas and even Washington national security officials as the threats grow from nuclear war, an EMP or virus attack. Called Fortitude Ranch, the outposts promise protection and a year’s supply of food for those unable to build their own bunker. What’s more, until a crisis strikes, they are being used for prepper training and vacations. “We’re seeing members from all the three letter agencies,” said Fortitude creator Drew Miller,...
  • Britain 'four meals away from anarchy' if cyber attack takes out power grid

    The warning comes weeks after the Defence Secretary, Gavin Williamson, said Russia had been spying on the UK’s energy infrastructure and could cause “thousands and thousands and thousands” of deaths if it crippled the power supply. America this week blamed the Russian government for a campaign of cyber attacks stretching back at least two years that targeted the US power grid.  Energy and security experts say a cyber attack is one of a number of so-called “black sky hazards” that have the potential to knock out power for days, weeks or even longer across large parts of a country, or even continent....

    Can we prepare for everything? We never could have imagined…or prepped for…what happened in Venezuela. In this article, I wanted to analyze my preps, and the nature of the apocalypse we have been forced to face. I don’t know about you, but anything that kicks you out of your place, of your warm bed, your pets, kids, wife, and the rest of your family, for me does not have another better word to describe it. My comfort bubble was destroyed, my work of an entire life was thrown out by the window, my family insurance full coverage policy is gone...

    The Maduro diet: How most Venezuelans lost an average of 19 pounds in 2016, plus another 24 pounds in 2017 In May 2017, the Washington Post reported:In a recent survey of 6,500 Venezuelan families by the country’s leading universities, three-quarters of adults said they lost weight in 2016 — an average of 19 pounds… a level of hunger almost unheard-of outside war zones or areas ravaged by hurricane, drought or plague.In February 2018, Reuters reported:Venezuelans reported losing on average 11 kilograms (24 lbs) in body weight last year… according to a new university study…That’s 43 pounds in two years.Before I explain...

    The Fresno Bee ^ | February 16, 2018 | Cindy Swirko, Ocala Star Banner
    OCALA, Fla. In mid-2016, a regional task force that spent almost two years exploring ways to improve safety on a crowded Interstate 75 decided to take a conservative approach: make changes to the highway rather than build or expand other roads. Then Hurricane Imra blew into Florida and thousands of people trying to flee its path got stuck, many of them in Ocala and points north and south. Now, a new road with a potential route through Marion and Alachua counties may be back on the table, if not exactly speeding ahead. "I think they are going to do it...

    SHTF Plan ^ | 2-13-2018
    People are fleeing the socialism forced on them in Venezuela by the hundreds of thousands. Starving, and facing violence over crumbs of food, many have no choice but to flee the wasteland which used the authority of government to destroy the lives of its citizens. Thousands of Venezuelans are attempting to flee the socialist dystopia their nation has become. They are attempting to make it to Colombia. In a desperate bid to escape the hunger and soaring crime rate caused by the spiraling economic crisis, fueled by socialist policies, incredible pictures have surfaced showing the mass exodus of refugees crossing...
  • The CDC Wants to Get People Ready for a Nuclear Detonation

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is offering a teaching session later this month that's tied to a timely topic of late: nuclear war. The Jan. 16 event, which the CDC has titled "Public Health Response to a Nuclear Detonation," comes at a time when continued tensions between the U.S. and North Korea over the Hermit Kingdom's nuclear pursuits are running particularly hot. ------------------- Federal, state and local agencies would lead immediate responses to nuclear activity, the CDC says. Yet Stat News reports the session is meant to target public health professionals like doctors, nurses, pharmacists and even...

    US Agency to Hold Briefing on How Public Can Prepare for Nuclear War By Tom Ozimek January 6, 2018 8:31 am Last Updated: January 6, 2018 12:28 pm A U.S. federal agency has scheduled a briefing for how the public can prepare for nuclear war. “While a nuclear detonation is unlikely, it would have devastating results and there would be limited time to take critical protection steps,” stated the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on its website. The notice about the briefing, scheduled for the Jan. 16, features a photograph of a mushroom cloud and notes that “planning...

    Hurrah for the Co-Op! I’m no fan of supermarkets, but I’m delighted by its decision to introduce a ‘10p aisle’ to sell food that is past its ‘Best Before’ date in a determined effort to reduce waste. The Co-Op isn’t known as an innovator, so it has stolen a march on Tesco and Sainsbury’s with an initiative that means a selection of products — tinned goods, dried foods etc — will stay on sale for one month after their ‘Best Before’. I believe this is perfectly timed to take advantage of the public’s desire for a return to common sense...

    Daily Mail ^ | November 24, 2017 | CECILE BORKHATARIA
    From Hurricane Irma to the Northern California wildfires, this year has seen its fair share of natural disasters. These disasters may have you thinking about what you should do in the eventuality one hits your city - how do you prepare and should you think about leaving? According to an expert, a lot of what drives large-scale evacuations is mass hysteria and fear, and most natural disasters don't require an immediate evacuation because they can be predicted, for example hurricanes. However, there are certain things city dwellers can do in preparation for a sudden disaster. John Renne, the Director of...

    The Organic Prepper ^ | November 3, 2017 | Daisy Luther
    Tomorrow is November 4th, the date that has been bandied about by wannabe Communists and people who hate the President since last summer as the starting date of their uprising. Cities across the country have planned events (find the list of locations here) and I’ve gotten photos from people in small towns all over the place of signs with the ominous warning, “November 4th It Begins.” Now, before we delve into prepping for this, please know that there is every chance this is a tempest in a teapot. It’s most likely that anywhere from 20 to 200 people will...

    Are we about to see chaos in the streets in major cities all over America? Antifa and other radical leftist groups are promising that a series of protests will begin on November 4th that will never end until “the Trump/Pence regime” is “removed from power”. And as you will see below, Antifa has openly and publicly embraced violence and the Department of Homeland Security says that they have engaged in domestic terrorism. Hopefully these “protests” will fizzle out after a few weeks, because political organizations that believe in “the necessary use of violence” have no place in our society....

    There is a parallel between the core basics of survival and those things that nature takes from us in one of these powerful hurricanes. When I think of survival and the very basics, there is shelter, water, food and fire. As the powerful winds and punishing rains of Hurricane Harvey approached Texas people were most concerned with these survival basics. It was immediately apparent that there were many people unprepared to deal with the aftermath of this storm. Most resources were gobbled up in storm prep and no one really knew when trucks would return to Houston to restock shelves....
