    PJ Media ^ | September 5, 2017 | Jeff Sanders
    When it comes to natural disasters, probably everyone is thinking of Hurricane Harvey and its destruction in and around Houston. In addition to that devastation, there are also wildfires raging in southern California and Montana (hundreds of people have had to evacuate). Aside from those terrible disasters, most people don't spend much time thinking about chemical spills, blizzards, tornados, riots, or terrorist attacks. Now that I have your attention, are you taking steps to protect yourself and family in the wake of a disaster?
  • Big brands shun straight, white Britain in their adverts

    Advertisers are turning to gay couples and ethnic minorities to sell their products Advertisers are so worried about being accused of racism or homophobia they are shying away from using images of white people and straight couples. Marketing departments are even putting diversity above relevance to their target audience to avoid accusations of bigotry, a survey of 500 companies has found. A third of advertisers questioned said they had used fewer white models and heterosexual couples over the past year. More than a third of these said they were taking this approach to “prevent perceived discrimination”. The findings are likely...

    I liked Christopher Nolan's Interstellar because the bad guy was a fraudulent climate scientist called Dr Mann. So I was hoping Dunkirk might feature a sadistic Gestapo officer called Obergruppenklimatführer Mann. But Dunkirk is not that kind of a war film. Indeed, Christopher Nolan says it's not a war film at all but a survival movie. And in May of 1940 it was not a question merely of individual survival, but of national survival, too. Nolan belongs to the last generation of Britons for whom the word Dunkirk is of mythic proportions. He's pushing fifty, and I find it hard...

  • ‘Who should survive?’: Common Core assignment mixes race, religion and lifeboats

    Here’s another bizarre school assignment to add to the pile, courtesy of Wisconsin-based talk show host Vicki McKenna. Students are asked to work in groups to choose seven people to save from a shipwreck. To help in their decision, they are given some rudimentary information about each passenger, such as race and religious views. Mr. Blake, for example, is a Mormon who “sympathizes with anti-black views,” while Mr. Newton is a “black power advocated” [sic] who is “suspected of homosexual activity.” You can see the educational value, especially when you take into account Father Frans, a priest who is “often...

    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...

    There are many ghost stories to hear about but for this Montana hiker, you'd have live a lifetime of scary tales in a single, death-defying day. Todd Orr survived, but barely and he had a firearm that he chose not to use in respect for the bear. If you've ever wondered what it's like to be attacked by a bear, here's the story in vivid detail as posted on his Facebook: Hello everyone. Thought I should share yesterday morning's Grizzly incident. I took an early morning hike in the Madison valley to scout for elk. Knowing that bears are common...

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 4/21/2017 | J Hines
    Imagine being zip tie behind your back and you had to escape, how would you do this? The best way to overcome any type of restraints is to analyze how it works. Zip ties are tough nylon tape that contains small teeth running lengthwise down on one side, and a ratchet with small teeth embedded in a small open case. The ratchet is molded to have downward pressure to be placed upon it as the tape is run through the open case, once the tape is align with the teeth of the ratchet, it will lock the zip tie. If...

    When you're in the woods and you need a place to go, you can at least go comfortably with this wilderness lifehack! Lots of you have probably been putting garbage bags in buckets for this kind of thing (or just been using buckets, you savages), but why not add a little extra luxury for a few added dollars, and put a pool noodle seat on it? You can even hang the paper roll from the handle. One thing I might add, if I were doing this– maybe consider reinforcing the pool noodle with some duct tape if you’re going to...

    A woman who spent five days stranded in the Grand Canyon described the "true panic" of her harrowing experience in an exclusive interview with ABC News. "I was panicking and crying and sobbing - I was a mess," said Amber Vanhecke, 24, about the moment she first realized she was lost without GPS or cell reception. Vanhecke, a college student from Denton, Texas, was sightseeing by herself last week near the southern rim of the Grand Canyon when her GPS instructed her to make a wrong turn, leading her through increasingly tough terrain. An experienced Girl Scout and outdoor adventurer,...

    Your skills, knowledge and and social capital will emerge unscathed on the other side of the re-set wormhole. Your financial assets held in centrally controlled institutions will not.Longtime correspondent C.A. recently asked a question every American household should be asking: which assets are most likely to survive the "system re-set" that is now inevitable? It's a question of great import because not all assets are equal in terms of survivability in crisis, when the rules change without advance notice.If you doubt the inevitability of a system implosion/re-set, please read Is America In A Bubble (And Can It Ever Return To...

    Since the Donald entered the White House, America has gone from bad to worse as far as violence goes. The rise of mob violence, riots, and outright targeting of people by domestic terrorist groups – like Antifa, Communists, Black Lives Matter, and other Soros-funded radical far-left groups – isn’t to be taken lightly. We saw Berkeley blow up in riots because Milo Yiannopoulos was invited to speak there. We saw mobs rioting in Portland. We saw Washington D.C. trashed at the Women’s March and inauguration riots, and we saw violent leftists attack people at a College Republicans event at NYU...

    The war on drugs continues to enjoy popular support in the Philippines despite condemnation from many outside the country. Recent opinion surveys show 85 percent of Filipinos approve of the violent crackdown on illegal drugs but at the same time 78 percent are fearful they, or someone they know, may become a victim of the increased violence. Despite that 89 percent of people have noted a decline in crime since the anti-drug campaign began and find that overall they are safer.

    The following is an email from Mark Nugent of Sacramento california who at the age of 16 was forced into the mental health system against his will, branded mentally ill, stripped of his trust fund by his liberal parents and forced on SSI. The SSI program was originally intended for those liberals branded too old or too stupid to work. It pays very little, about $695 a month and to receive it one must not hold assets or property worth more than $2000.  People with disabilities who receive SSI [Supplemental Security Income] payments continue to be the nation’s poorest citizens....
