    Thanks to experience with numerous hurricanes, we were prepared for the Texas power outage and no one slept in the cold at our house. When you are prepared, three days is not that bad.I have lived along the Gulf Coast my entire life, mostly in the Houston Area. I lived and worked in Louisiana when Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Gustav slammed into South Louisiana and have learned from my successes and failures and those of my friends.After moving back home to Texas and a long period of relatively quiet storm activity, Hurricane Harvey was a test of different beast until...

    Ice Age Now dot Info ^ | 17 February 2021 | Jean S.
    These are my tips for people in TX and other places where they don’t normally have power outages in extremely cold weather and no experience with that and may not know what to do. These tips are based on my growing up in New England and also having lived in Maine and Utah, and having experienced multiple days of power outages in extreme cold. A number of houses I lived in either were poorly insulated and, in some cases, not all parts of the house had heat. 1. Check to see if any of your doors have a space at...
  • Romney: "Republicans Must Publicly Confess Errors" [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 31 January 2021 | John Semmens
    Taking a page from Mao Zedong, the late leader of the Chinese Communist Party, on how to deal with unbelievers, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) insists that "the only way our country will ever achieve unity is for all the Republicans who expressed doubt about the integrity of the presidential election to publicly acknowledge their error, beg for forgiveness, and yield to the mercy the Democratic Party might extend to them." "It doesn't really matter whether they personally are convinced that the election was fair," Romney advised. "Just repeating the words helps put a person on the road to acceptance into...

    As 2020 wound to a close, pundits noted the growing toll of leftist policies on residents of blue states, prompting migration from California, New York, New Jersey, and Illinois to Republican-run states such as Texas and Florida, which offer lower taxes and a better business climate. In addition to losing Oracle, Charles Schwab, Hewlett Packard, and Elon Musk, for the first time in its history California is expected to lose a congressional seat in the upcoming decennial census allocation, due to stagnating population. Texas is expected to gain three seats, and Florida is expected to pick up two. Blue states...

    What’s the point of bothering, and spending all that money, if everything goes to hell in a handbasket? Well, for one thing, we’re not in the handbasket yet. And becoming a part of the local amateur community is a good thing – you’ll create friendships and alliances, learn more about the hobby from those who have been there and done that, and even be able to assist your community if the shit really hits the fan in a non-political sense.

    Prepper Ping - How do you prepare for a revolution? Or for Socialism, where the misery is shared when there is no more money In this article, I want to speak specifically about the practical steps you need to take to be prepared for a revolution if things should come to that point across the country. This article is not about philosophy or right vs. wrong. It’s not about fighting for your “side” whatever side that might be. It’s about surviving. There are lots of links because I’m not reinventing the entire wheel here – that would be a book...

    LOMA LINDA, California, December 23, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Several studies show a correlation between Vitamin D levels and COVID-19.According to a now viral interview with Professor Roger Seheult of the Loma Linda University School of Medicine, several studies show that people with higher amounts of Vitamin D in their blood are less likely to test positive for COVID-19 than people with Vitamin D deficiency. Another study has shown that COVID-positive patients treated with hydroxylated Vitamin D were less likely to need admittance to ICU than COVID-positive patients in the placebo group. Still another study showed that COVID-positive patients treated with...
  • Vanity: Question for preppers about COVID

    12/17/2020 5:33:21 PM PST · by GrootheWanderer · 32 replies
    For people who are preppers, what are you doing differently now than you were a year ago? What, if anything, caught you off guard? What lessons have you learned from the pandemic that have caused you to change what you do? For those whose plans include bugging out, how will you deal with the possibility of formal travel restrictions or people in small towns and rural communities who might be hostile to outsiders coming in and possibly bringing a disease with them?

    I had the opportunity to interview author J.P. Redding (a pseudonym) shortly after his first book “Off Grid” came out. Initially, I thought it was a survivalist book. The subtitle “Is there anywhere to hide from the surveillance state?” suggested that. It turns out that it is a science fiction book, as well.
  • Remembering Herbert Hoover: Freedom and Impossible Modern Expectations

    Failure-proof freedom is not possible. But we strive for it. Herbert Hoover knew in 1936 just how bad “perfect” plans could become. What good did it do the pharaohs in Exodus to resist the will of God and think that they could overcome the pestilences He sent them. Nowadays entire societies think that by shutting down they can conquer a pandemic. The world is slowly realising that lockdowns don’t save us and the economic truth of what we are as workers, traders and customers. This knowledge may come too late to save the Trump presidency. But will the spirit of...

    A Review of Jack Lawson’s Civil Defense Manual: How to Prepare and Protect Your Neighborhood from Disaster, Riot and Civil Unrest If you are reading this, chances are good that you consider yourself a liberty-loving patriotic American. You might also consider yourself, as I certainly do, a “prepper,” that is, an all-around survival and preparedness advocate. As preppers, we’ve long been anticipating crises ranging from financial collapse, to violent insurrection, to natural or even man-made disasters that could extinguish our electrical grid in a flash. Now, deep into 2020, the year of the Chinese Coronavirus pandemic and widespread Marxist-inspired riots,...

    President Trump tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday night, and "obviously, given the president's age and his pre-existing illnesses, he's going to be at increased risk from this disease," CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said on Friday morning's New Day. "Still, the odds are very much in his favor ... greater than 90 percent, 95 percent chance that he will get through this." We know that his age, 244 pounds of weight, heart disease, and cholesterol level put Trump at higher risk, Gupta said. "When you're at his age, 65 to 74, it's about a five times greater...

    Dear Friends: 2020 has certainly been quite a year so far, and a defining one for the preparedness movement. No longer are our stockpiles of rice, beans, and hand sanitizer objects that make us strange. Our stashes of TP would make us the envy of the neighborhood if, of course, anybody knew we had it. So many of the things and beliefs that made us figures of mockery in the past are now proving their value. We’re learning, with a mixture of relief and perhaps dismay, that we weren’t so crazy after all. When the first lockdown began, we weren’t...

    The Little Badger's overall design principal is minimalistic. The Chiappa engineers gave the little gun everything it needs. I first encountered the Chiappa Little Badger single-shot, I pegged it as a survival rifle. It comes in basic black, either in 22LR or 22WMR, both of which are fine for small game. With an overall length of 31 inches, it is already small, but it also folds over and onto itself, creating an extremely compact triangle about 16.5 inches tall and 8 inches across the base. It weighs less than 3 pounds, making it only slightly heavier than large center-fire...
