  • 10 Easiest Goat Breeds to Raise

    If you consider buying a farm or you already have some field and want to use it for this purpose, you would need to know about 10 easiest goat breeds to raise. First of all, you need to know why to choose goats instead of cows, pigs, or sheep? They give the same product as these three breeds, but products of cows, pigs, and sheep are more in demand. Well, that is true, but, when you look at the numbers, you will see that raising goats is more profitable and better in every matter than keeping these three. First of...

    I either read or dreamed that I read in one of the SHTF preparedness manuals that one of the religious orders usually has a canning facility set up in their halls so members can get ready for the future and save via economy of scale. Was that the Jehova's Witnesses? Can nonbelievers use their facility?

    On Friday, Michael Savage -- conservative talk show host and Berkeley Ph.D. in nutritional ethnomedicine -- referenced Nathaniel West's classic 1939 novel about the burning of Los Angeles, The Day of the Locust, to describe what will occur in the USA should Trump be brought down by his assorted "Globalist" enemies. People will “resort to mob violence” when they “are finally aware of the fact that they’ve been tricked by their society, and that no matter how hard they work as middle class people” they are denied.“That is what’s going to happen in this country,” Savage said. “You have not...

    Personal security and survival are key when SHTF. Whether it's social unrest, a string of armed robberies, or a terrorist attack, these weapons are the best weapons to get you and your family out alive. Sawed-off shotgunmacheteAR-15 There are probably many more weapons and firearms that you can get your hands on, but you have to think. How many of these can you carry or get access to quickly. See the rest of the SHTF weapons list here. What about you all?, what do you prefer to have?

    President Trump may be chief of state, head of government and commander in chief, but his administration is shot through with disloyalists plotting to bring him down. We are approaching something of a civil war where the capital city seeks the overthrow of the sovereign and its own restoration. Thus far, it is a nonviolent struggle, though street clashes between pro- and anti-Trump forces are increasingly marked by fistfights and brawls. Police are having difficulty keeping people apart. A few have been arrested carrying concealed weapons. That the objective of this city is to bring Trump down via a deep...

    The Federalist ^ | June 5, 2017 | Clifford Humphrey
    Kathy Griffin’s recent ISIS-like outrage against President Trump justly sparked condemnations from both the Left and the Right, despite her subsequent attempts to transform herself from aggressor to martyr. Sadly, such a violent statement is simply par for the course these days. Yet if Trump really is the tyrannical fascist the Left believes him to be, then why should they not want to kill him? Sic semper tyrannis! Indeed, the American revolutionaries often declared that “Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.” But using violence as an appeal to heaven is a last resort, a sign we have reached the...

    We all know a guy. You know. That Guy. The one who 'has a plan' when the Zombie Apocalypse' happens (it won't). That plan usually consists of holing up in a mall or a grocery store, brandishing ridiculous weapons, and may have taken a martial arts class once. There's a survival variant, too, and I'm gonna tell you all about it. You might find that you're a That Guy. There's no shame in it. The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem. I was a mall ninja once, and I'll admit it, I still like overly complicated...

    Once again, the left has attempted to show outrage over the rights of the American people being used to have credible debate. Our political class, along with the violent protest groups that they support have attempted to serve notice that those of us who believe in the American way must be silenced, and must be forced to keep our opinions and beliefs to ourselves. Between the progressives/ socialists dinosaurs called the Democrats, the socialists throughout our academia and the media, and the basement dwellers creating chaos in the country, it is going to get worse before it gets better.

    “Civilization has been aptly called a ‘thin crust over a volcano.’ (Liberals) are constantly picking at that crust.” -- Thomas Sowell After Hollywood jackass Jimmy Kimmel was criticized for exploiting his son’s illness to push his political agenda and incorrectly insinuating that surgeries for newborns weren’t covered before Obamacare, he did a follow-up on the subject where he said, “I would like to apologize for saying that children in America should have health care. It was insensitive, it was offensive, and I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me.” Drop dead, Jimmy Kimmel, you colossal ass....

People wear gas masks next to the pipeline route during a protest against the Dakota Access pipeline near the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in St. Anthony, North Dakota, U.S. November 11, 2016. WRITTEN BY Matthew Sedacca May 07, 2017 A month before the 2016 US presidential election, Colin Waugh and his wife bought their first firearm. Donald Trump’s campaign was taking an unprecedented turn, with the candidate baiting gun-rights supporters to exert their influence and suggesting that a loss in November would be evidence of a rigged system....

    TEL AVIV – While the international community and news media focus on North Korean missile tests and the country’s nuclear program, one expert warned on Sunday that North Korea may be secretly assembling the capability to take out significant parts of the U.S. homeland via an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack. Dr. Peter Vincent Pry is executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and is the chief of staff of the Congressional EMP Commission. Speaking on this reporter’s talk radio program, Pry pointed to two North Korean satellites that are currently orbiting the U.S. at trajectories he...

    While not rare, the Baikal IZH 94 chambered in 12ga AND 7.62×39 is one very cool firearm. This popular Russian survival rifle is sends some pretty sweet firepower downrange. One thing is for sure, the Russians had it right when they put together the Baikal IZH 94 survival rifle. It shoots two drastically different rounds and packs a pretty mean punch. The firearm is capable of shooting a 12 gauge slug and a 7.62×39 round of rifle ammo. The gun itself is pretty sweet looking and boasts two triggers. One of the triggers is in charge of firing the slug...

    In a recent column, I made the case that Americans are fighting the Second Civil War. The deep chasm that has opened up between the left -- not liberals, the left -- and the rest of the country is so wide and so unbridgeable that there is no other way to describe what is happening. But I noted that at least thus far, unlike the First Civil War, this war is not violent. Unfortunately, there is now reason to believe that violence is coming. In fact, it's already here. But as of now, it's only coming from one direction. Left-wing...

    Now, I’ll be totally honest with you – I don’t even know what Shrimp Creole is. So I looked it up… Shrimp creole is a dish of Louisiana Creole origin, consisting of cooked shrimp in a mixture of whole or diced tomatoes, the Holy trinity of onion, celery and bell pepper, spiced with hot pepper sauce and/or cayenne-based seasoning, and served over steamed or boiled white rice Okay, so this stuff is eaten with rice. Makes sense, anybody interested in storing long-term food will certainly have a sack of rice or ten.

    While the total wipeout depicted in One Second After is probably exaggerated, the effects could knock out our power grid for months, and destroy critical communications and computer systems. As former CIA chief James Woolsey recently said: If you look at the electric grid and what it's susceptible to, we would be moving into a world with no food delivery, no water purification, no banking, no telecommunications, no medicine. All of these things depend on electricity in one way or another. In such a situation, there simply is no way to rule out the possibility that hundreds of millions could...

    Last week Trump supporters and leftist social justice warriors met on the political field of battle in Berkeley, California. Words were exchanged, as were punches. And while an alt-right leader was punched in the face, by all accounts even the social justice warriors admit that they got a major beat-down. This prompted a reddit discussion among the left’s tolerant resistance movement, with many asking how they can more effectively go to war against anyone who disagrees with their social, political, and economic views. The anti-Trump protesters at the rally were ill-prepared for what they came to Berkeley to confront and...

    Most Americans have no idea that biological weapons could potentially bring our nation to a complete and utter standstill within a matter of days. In recent articles I have been trying to get people to understand why it would be so exceedingly dangerous for the United States to attack North Korea. If the North Koreans used weapons of mass destruction, we could easily be facing a situation in which millions of North Korean and Japanese citizens end up dead. But since it would happen on the other side of the planet, such a scenario doesn’t seem to emotionally move a...

    The mainstream media, and some officials who should know better, continue to allege North Korea does not yet have capability to deliver on its repeated threats to strike the U.S. with nuclear weapons. False reassurance is given to the American people that North Korea has not “demonstrated” that it can miniaturize a nuclear warhead small enough for missile delivery, or build a reentry vehicle for an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of penetrating the atmosphere to blast a U.S. city. Yet any nation that has built nuclear weapons and long-range missiles, as North Korea has done, can easily overcome the...
