What Is Happening to the Farms Which Used to Feed the World?

from La /Rouche PAC:
This video, from the Schiller Institute’s September 5-6 conference, paints a devastating picture of what Wall Street and globalist cartels have done to our family farms. In the midst of a hunger pandemic which will kill thousands in Africa, portions of the Americas, and Southwest Asia, American cattlemen and other farmers are committing suicide at record rates, driven into bankruptcy, unable to get any kind of reasonable price for their work. This is a crisis in the farm sector which has been growing under globalization for years and requires an urgent policy shift.

Hurricane Preparedness–Floridian Style, by R.L.

R.L., Survival Blog:

Florida. The name conjures images to people from around the globe. Sure, most people imagine the beautiful beaches, Disney, NASA, the Daytona 500 and others, but one cannot think of the State of Florida and not think hurricanes. Hurricanes are not concerns for Florida residents only, no way, as we have witnessed many of the most destructive hurricanes in the United States impacting states such as Louisiana, North Carolina and South Carolina, Texas, even New York State! The reality is that a major hurricane (Category 3 or above) is going to wreak havoc and devastation anywhere the storm impacts. This article is not about the destructiveness of hurricanes or a plan for surviving a major hurricane, instead, I’d like to shed some light on the unique challenges that major hurricanes pose to residents of the State of Florida.

Are You Prepared For ‘TEOTWAWKI’? These Survival Items To Get And Things To Do RIGHT NOW May Make The Difference Between Life And Death When SHTF

by Prepping Army, All News Pipeline:

Far too many people try to get prepared at the last minute! Don’t be one of them!

The whole point of preparedness is to be ready when a disaster strikes. If a hurricane is heading your way, you don’t want to be in line at the store with hundreds of other people buying whatever supplies are left. You want to be at home with your family, secure in the fact that you have all the supplies you need.

But what if it’s too late? Imagine you’re one of those people who likes the idea of preparedness but never really got into it, and now a disaster is looming and you only have hours left to prepare. What should you do?

Again, you don’t want to let yourself end up in this situation. But in case you are, here is a list of last-minute preps to do/get before it’s too late.

How to Safely Pressure Can Meat

by Sandi H., Survival Blog:

I grew up eating my grandmothers’ canned vegetables and fruits. Both of them put up the harvest to feed their farm families in the winter. But neither of them canned meat. It never crossed my mind that one could can meat until, in my thirties, I started canning my own spaghetti sauce and wondered if I could add hamburger to it. It turned out that I could! And that opened up a whole new world of canning opportunities.

Now, canned meats are a pantry staple for my family. I enjoy being able to grab a jar and have dinner on the table in less time than it would take a package of frozen meat to thaw. I have canned chicken, turkey, pork, stew beef, beef meatballs, and meat sauce. The shelf life of canned meat in my experience is 10+ years. If the home canner follows simple rules for safe canning, meat will be safe to eat for many years to come.

Did It Really Take a Pandemic for People to Realize that Prepping Isn’t Crazy?

My intentions with my articles are never to mock anyone. This article is no exception. On the contrary, I give kudos to those who (finally!) understand and have jumped onto the self-sufficiency wagon.

I know many funny memes are going around the prepping community regarding how “happy” some preppers are after finally getting the chance to face “the real thing.” It’s not that easy.

Escalation of Force: How to Choose the Appropriate Response to Potential Violence

“I’ll just pull out my Glock/HK/Ruger and deal with those punks. Once they see their buddies drop, they’ll back off soon enough.”

“We could end this by just killing anyone who sets foot on our block.”

“All good Americans need to do is start mowing down protesters with their cars if the roads get blocked.”

Chances are, if you ever read the comments or visit any type of social media outlet online, you’ve read some comments pretty similar to the ones above. After all, this is America, land of the free, home of the brave. It’s up to all good patriots to defend our property and our country from scumbags with deadly force.

Buy Lots Of Food And Store It Some Place Safe, Because Very Difficult Times Are Approaching

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

I’m just going to be very blunt with you. Things have already gotten quite crazy, but they are going to get even crazier. Global food supplies have already gotten tight, but they are going to get even tighter. When even the UN starts using the word “biblical” to describe the famine that the world is facing, that is a sign that the hour is very late. Thankfully, we are not facing famine in the short-term here in the United States, but “temporary shortages” of certain items have already been popping up, and food prices are aggressively shooting higher. Earlier today my wife stopped by the grocery store to pick up a couple of things, and one particular item that used to cost about 12 dollars was now 20 dollars instead. But thanks to the Federal Reserve, this is about as low as food prices are going to get. The Fed seems absolutely determined to crank up inflation, and that is going to have very serious implications during the times that are ahead. Right now we have a window of opportunity before the next wave of trouble comes along, and I would greatly encourage you to use this window of opportunity to buy lots of food and store it some place safe.

Versatile Photovoltaic Power – Part 2

REFRIGERATION

Refrigeration will likely be one of the biggest loads on your solar power system, if not the biggest. I went back and forth for a long time on the propane vs. DC electrical discussion to run refrigeration. I finally came down on the side of DC refrigeration for two reasons: 1. The rugged terrain around my Buglout Location (BOL) would make it extremely difficult for a truck to deliver a tank and refill it; and 2. The availability of bottled gas after a grid-down or TEOTWAWKI situation would be pretty much limited to what you have on hand. Fortunately, the demand for refrigeration in the winter is much less, coinciding with the less energy you will get from your panels due to the shorter days.
