Last week, I was hanging out with my friend, “Above Average” Joe from SurvivalLife.com, when I saw his paracord lanyard. I played dumb and asked him what it was for. Joe passionately explained a little history of paracord and told me about many of the different ways it can be used.
A few months ago, the Federal Communications Commission fined Google $25,000 for taking its sweet time to give information to the FCC about an interesting project Google had been working on.
The other day, I received an opinion piece from one of our writers that discussed the 2nd Amendment. In it, she made many of the same mistakes made by a lot of liberals. I realized I couldn’t let it go without weighing in on the issue. I want you to read her piece and mine and then get in on this argument.
Have you been paying attention to the news lately? Have you seen where your rights are being flushed down the toilet on a daily basis? We no longer have the basic freedom to keep our private life private.
I’m really shocked that we haven’t seen more garbage along with this election, and I can’t help but think that we’re going to see it all at once. You should pay close attention to everything that’s about to go down in the next few weeks.
One of the most important things you can do to prepare for a crisis is to always be learning. I know that sounds like a tough thing to do, but in reality, you can learn new tricks and tips every day.
The closer we get to Election Day, there will be distracters and folks trying to stop you from thinking freely so that the people in charge can stay in charge. Whether you believe in our system or not, you need to believe that you should vote and that every vote counts.
When the end of the world as we know it (TEOTWAWKI) happens, none of us will be ready. There is no amount of preparedness, storage or training that we can have that will have us ready in the blink of an eye for something that can literally happen just as fast.
I think the shootings that happened in Aurora, Colo., were tragic. It is always inexcusable to take the lives of innocent people. What’s also inexcusable is to use those lost lives for political gain, which is what we’re probably going to see over the next few weeks.
I would have to say the most intriguing thing I have had the pleasure of learning is how easy it could be to live off the grid. I had the opportunity to learn from one of the best, Johnny Mueller, the other day when we sat down to discuss his Five Flags program. It shocked me how common living without a true home country had become.
Let’s face the facts: When you pack your bug-out bag, you don’t want to be bogged down with multiple items when one will do the trick. One of the most valuable and variable tools that you can use in the wild is the survival knife.
I think that it’s so easy to overlook the needs of children in potential crisis situations. We focus so much on what we adults need in our bug-out bags for us, but we overlook the obvious things like what our children could use in an emergency.
When the dollar begins to drop, what will we do? Sure, you can hunt for food and you can filter your own water. But at some point, we will need to build back the communities that we once had and function together. The economy will grow again, but in a different way: by bartering.
Have you heard of the “Ex-PATRIOT Act” (“Expatriation Prevention by Abolishing Tax-Related Incentives for Offshore Tenancy” Act)? The concept of the act is to completely restrict your freedom to live wherever you would like and keep your money out of the U.S. government’s hands.
Water is one of the most critical things that we need for survival. If you drink bad water, you can die very quickly. You really can’t trust any of the sources of water in the wild that you’ll have. It is critical that you purify whatever water you put into your body. Don’t be unprepared.
When you are preparing for the worst, it becomes very easy to overlook simple items that you’ll need to survive. Sure, you’ll have your basic first aid kits and rations of food, but there are a few items that you should always remember to have with you.
