    I first planned to put out a post with this title weeks ago. But I got busy and yada, yada… Then Joe made his stupid, angry announcement attempting to force larger businesses to mandate COVID vaccines for their employees, and it made this idea even more pressing. What is the idea? Well, it’s certainly not my own. People have been thinking about this, and taking action toward this end, for decades now due to being able to see the once slow, and now very fast crumbling of the common structures that have supported our society, and our lives. Anyone who...

    FDA expected to issue full emergency authorization for periodic antibody injections, or PrEP, to complement vaccinations A proud sports mom, Shantay Brown longs to pack into a crowded stadium for her son’s Ohio State football games and scream her face off over the action on the field. But as with so many other simple pleasures in the age of Covid-19, nothing is that simple for Brown. The 47-year-old Missouri resident takes immunosuppressant medication for lupus. Consequently, her body has mounted virtually no antibody response to the coronavirus vaccine – leaving her in persistent peril.... ...In August, the FDA granted further...

    Folks - I want to buy some "prep" food for my son & his soon-to-be-bride. I want to make sure they have some stored food & the easiest way (unlike how I've done it) is to just buy some stored food from Patriot Food Supply or such. I'm curious if any Freepers have purchased & what they consider the best options, where you have purchased from or what advice you might have. Appreciate the advice!

    Biotech company Moderna, which developed one of the two most effective COVID-19 vaccines last year, plans to begin human trials soon for a new AIDS vaccine, according to multiple news sources. According to information posted last week to the National Institute of Health’s clinical trial database, Moderna is looking for 56 HIV-negative people, ages 18-50, to participate in the trials set to begin this week (Thursday, Aug. 19) and conclude in the spring of 2023. Moderna’s AIDS vaccines passed through Phase 1 testing for safety, involving just a few human volunteers, earlier this year. Phase II will test the vaccine’s...

    A crippling ice storm that left Travis Maddox and thousands of other Missouri residents without power in 2007 had an “almost apocalyptic feel to it.” “No one could move. It just shut the whole region down for two weeks. I wasn’t as prepared as I thought,” said Maddox, a burly man of 43, sporting a long black beard, T-shirt, cargo pants, and baseball cap, while tending his garden. Those two weeks made Maddox realize that being prepared—“prepping,” as it’s called today—was the key to a life of self-reliance and personal freedom. As an Eagle Scout, he never forgot the Boy...

    In a massive move, the Biden Administration has released a new guidance that directs most health insurance companies to offer pre-exposure prophylaxis to beneficiaries at no cost. Pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, is a medicine taken to prevent at-risk communities from contracting HIV. According to the guidance, released Monday by the Department of Labor, the Affordable Care Act requires health plans and market plans to offer preventative drugs that get a recommendation from the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force without cost-sharing. This means that beneficiaries will not be charged co-pays or deductibles for medicine, labs, or office visits. PrEP became a...

    AIDS Map ^ | 4 September 2020 | Gus Cairns
    Two reports of HIV infection occurring despite apparent adequate adherence to PrEP, confirmed by drug level testing, are the first reliably documented cases to be published in peer-reviewed journals since 2018. The most recent case was reported by Dr Matthew Spinelli in Clinical Infectious Diseases. It concerns a 44-year-old gay man in Texas and appears not to be due to poor adherence, but to infection with an HIV virus with an unusual combination of resistance mutations. Two characteristics of the case make it hard to argue against this being a genuine case of PrEP breakthrough. Firstly, samples of blood and...

    Much has been written about surviving riots and civil unrest. But thereÂ’s nothing like a firsthand account to bring it to life. We shared an eye-witness story from a National Guard member who told us about the Seattle riots. Another writer shared her familyÂ’s experience during the Ferguson riots. WeÂ’ve seen brutal videos on YouTube and social media. The violence in our country is increasing dramatically. HereÂ’s a first-hand story of the Kenosha riots. And now, a woman has shared on Facebook what her family recently experienced in the Kenosha, Wisconsin riots. In her post, the thing that stands out...

    'm not going to say that what we've been experiencing over the last three months have been the first salvos of a civil war, but it sure looks like it. While hard-line socialists in the Democratic Party are working within the political infrastructure and behaving as though they are conducting the business of governance according to the rule of law and constitutionally established procedures, they are in fact in the process of fomenting civil war – or at least, they have made it apparent that they are willing to go that far if they are not able to gain ascendency...

    <...> Many Americans are well aware that in their cities, the power belongs not just to leftists, not only to outspoken communists but also fanatics, ideological whackos with ideas of the world revolution. What will American citizens do? They, in fact, have already done, and have already decided this. America has gorged its fill of decapitated and mutilated statues, looting and marauding left-wing barbarians, and demands the restoration of order. Democrats already seem to know who won this year’s election, and the pathetic attempt to revolutionize America is simply an instinctive collective reaction of leftism to its future loss. But...

    In an interesting American Thinker piece entitled "How to Fight the Woke – and Win," the author included a piece of advice called "Become Anti-Fragile" as follows: "In war, you must always secure your supply lines. One of the Woke's most powerful weapons is economic pressure, so take that away from them as much as possible. … Being anti-fragile will allow you to stand firm when you need to speak the truth."

    Pretend it’s 1960, and the Food and Drug Administration has just done something startling. It has taken a drug it had previously approved for infertility — brand name Enovid — and approved it for the opposite use: birth control. That pill — soon simply the Pill — triggered the sexual revolution. But not overnight. Doctors at first resisted giving it to unmarried women. Women were shy about carrying evidence that they actually planned to have sex. Feminists like Margaret Sanger and Katharine D. McCormick braved vilification to champion it. Madison Avenue chimed in: Ads featured Andromeda, the princess of Greek...

    The State of Texas will hold an Emergency Preparation Supplies Sales Tax Holiday this weekend, giving Texans the chance to stock up on essentials. "I know the weather's good and people aren't thinking about bad weather, but as you know, a couple of weeks ago, the Cap10K was rained out for the first time in its history, a lot of people are still getting out over Hurricane Harvey," Kevin Lyons, a spokesperson for the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, said. "We know this is the time of year where there's potential for severe weather." Since 2016, the first year when...

Right now it has almost 900 files and is about 7GB in size, with sections on prepping, homesteading, gardening, survival, etc. It is a labor of love, something to keep me busy while I was organizing my stuff. Hopefully it is just a beginning and it will end up as a knowledge base for those who like to get ready for the coming storm. It is on a protected site so you need a decryption key to get in. You will also need some basic files...

    I don’t typically like writing about firearms on this blog, as there’s a lot of other outlets that do that, and I think that guns get WAY too much focus in the Survivalism and Preparedness community. They’re important and fun, but other stuff, like growing food and having a good store of tools, is just as important. That being said, like with all things, a baseline must first be recognized and then built upon, never detracted from- in order to maximize our capabilities. Hanging out on the sidelines of a public range can be a hobby all to its own;...
