The Deadly Force Continuum: Are You Mentally Prepared to Defend Yourself?

0

by Sandra Lane, The Organic Prepper:

We often talk of defending ourselves in various ways and with many different weapons. Close to where I live is a walk-through shoot where the customer can take a live weapon through an obstacle course type building. I’d absolutely love to go through just to see how I would react in a break-in or defense simulation. Short of that, my family and I have trained repeatedly with squirt guns in clearing and defending our house.

by Melissa Smith, Natural News:

Mulberry is a plant traditionally cultivated in Korea, China, and Japan for medicine, particularly for treating obesity and diabetes. In a study published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, researchers at Chungnam National University in South Korea found that bioconverted mulberry leaf extract is an effective herbal medicine for improving the symptoms of diabetes.

Not ‘Crazy Or Delusional’ After All – Prepping Goes Mainstream But New Study Misses The Big Picture Of Why Survivalists Prepare For ‘Doomsday’

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

It appears that prepping is “now part of mainstream American politics and culture,” according to a new study, and lo and behold they have determined that it is no longer “considered peculiar behavior only exhibited by conspiracy theorists and other extremists in the United States,” and preppers and survivalists should no longer be considered right-wing “crazy or delusional” people.

The problem with the study is they based the premise of it on the rise of prepping “during Barack Obama’s presidency,” rather than looking at the prepping movement as a whole, which began long before Barack Obama came on to the national political scene.

PREPPING: THE “GRAY MAN” SURVIVAL CONCEPT

0

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

The “gray man” survival concept isn’t new in preppers’ circles, but it’s also something a lot of questions are asked about. Becoming a “gray man” essentially means strategically not drawing attention to yourself to avoid conflict.

Being a “gray man” is easier said than done.  Since it’s impossible to predict what the future will hold, especially the future of survivalism, we can only speculate how to best achieve “gray man” status.  That said, it is a skill that can be practiced now though, before the SHTF. Blending in, laying low, recognizing dangers, and situational awareness all play a role in this concept. Going unnoticed can keep you out of harm’s way.

Two Pieces of Advice: Keeping a Low Profile and Storing Bug-Out Gear

by J. G. Martinez D., The Organic Prepper:

Hello again fellows.

One of the things we have to consider as preppers is keeping a low profile. This is going to be a good idea no matter what happens. If someone´s desire is to make something outstanding and being famous, better work also in a good plan to go black once things start to go bad. Therefore, here I will discuss how we can stay low as much as possible.

But we necessarily have to take some gear with us, that is too valuable and useful to be stashed inside the bug out location (BOL). I see many preppers have some years roaming around and they’re not exactly young. Being almost solo now, I could imagine how hard it would be for just one person, or a senior couple to upload all of our gear in a truck. My family was once 6 persons, with two young under their 20s, and the baby. The world keeps going, and now it’s just two of us.

Fast food water tested for heavy metals: Taco Bell, KFC, Burger King, Dairy Queen, McDonalds, Subway and more

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

In our latest effort to test products for heavy metals and other contaminants, we recently acquired ice water from multiple fast food chains, including Whataburger, Jack in the Box, McDonald’s, Taco Bell, Burger King and more. Using our mass spec laboratory instrumentation (ICP-MS), we tested all these water samples for heavy metals.

You can see the full video revealing the test results only on Brighteon.com:

SELCO: The Myth of Stopping Power & What REALLY Stops Attackers

0

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

Another great and favorite topic in the survival community is a matter of best caliber and weapon for SHTF, and ammo with most stopping power. Stopping power means how quickly and with few bullets you can make threat unable to attack you or anyone else.
I tell you now, even for urban survival and the situation I have been through and speak about in my course, it is more important to discuss water filtering in urban SHTF scenarios than talking about stopping power.

Do not get me wrong, I am perfectly aware that burst from the machine gun in the man standing in front of you will do much more damage (and probably will stop him forever) than shooting at him with a pistol.

5 FREE PREPS ANYONE CAN DO!

0

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

When one decides to begin the journey into “prepping,” that doesn’t necessarily mean they have a lot of money at their disposal. That’s why it’s important to do the things that cost nothing first before you start buying things to store for when the SHTF.

This list is in no particular order, nor is it a complete list of all the possible things you can or should do after you decide to start prepping that doesn’t cost any money.  But this is a great guide for those just getting their feet wet and on a strict budget.

The Spice That Prevents Fluoride From Destroying Your Brain

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution:

  • The Facts:This article was written by Sayer Ji, Founder of Greenmedinfo.com where this article was originally published.
  • Reflect On:Fluoride is found everywhere today, from antibiotics to drinking water, no stick pans to toothpaste, making exposure inevitable. All the more reason why research proving Turmeric can prevent fluoride damage is so promising.

Fluoride’s neurotoxicity has been the subject of academic debate for decades, and now a matter of increasingly impassioned controversy among the general public, as well. From ‘conspiracy theories’ about it being first used in drinking water in Russian and Nazi concentration camps to chemically lobotomize captives, to its now well-known IQ lowering properties, to its ability to enhance the calcification of the pineal gland — the traditional ‘seat of the soul’ — many around the world, and increasingly in the heavily fluoridated regions of the United States, are starting to organize at the local and statewide level to oust this ubiquitous toxicant from municipal drinking water.

Fasting For Three Days Can Regenerate Entire Immune System, Study Finds

0

from Government Slaves:

These days there are always new diet options being offered up by the health and wellness industry. This has its good and bad points, of course.

On the good side, we’re all built differently and our own unique systems function better with certain ways of eating than others. Variety is the spice of life! What works for one person may not work for another. For example, maybe a mostly-fruit diet is your thing. Or, perhaps you’re all about the high protein/low carbs. Whatever the spice is of your life, you can bet there’s a diet for you to try.

How to Perform a Preparedness Audit (And Why You Need To Do This Every Year)

0

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

Every year, businesses perform an inventory and do an audit on their supplies. This helps them to know what they’ve spent, what they have, and what they need.

If you’re serious about preparedness, you need to be doing the same thing. At least once a year, you need to do a preparedness audit to make sure you always have the essentials on hand.

Often times, you think you have a lot more than you really do. You forget about those times you dip into your stockpile because you ran out of something in the kitchen. Or maybe you stashed something “out of sight, out of mind” and it expired. Maybe you’ve “lost” a case of dried food, and you know you have it somewhere.
