Spices for Long Term Storage

0

by Upper Midwesterner, Survival Blog:

This isn’t going to be just another food storage article. For excellent advice on that subject, start by exploring  the SurvivalBlog archives and the LDS web site. But there’s a related topic that I felt was worthy of discussion.

It wasn’t that long ago that .22 rimfire ammo disappeared from shelves, and conversations about PMAGs in stock sounded pretty similar to claims about Yeti and the Loch Ness Monster – utterances viewed by most listeners with great skepticism. We live in a ‘just in time’-supplied world, where almost anything can quickly affect the price – or the availability – of many products we’re used to seeing on our store’s shelves.

90% of You Will Not Be Here In Less Than Seven Years

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

This is an article that should have been written two years ago when Agenda 2030 was first rolled out. However, I made a fundamental judgment error, just like many of the Jews did in the early days of Nazi Germany. When Hitler first came to power most Jews  thought that he was merely a passing fad that would soon fade away. This soon gave way to having the Jews worst nightmares realized. We are facing the same flawed logic with Agenda 2030. What does Agenda 2030 and Hitler have in common? The answer is extreme depopulation of targeted groups.

In light of recent events and the rebranding of Agenda 21 into Agenda 2030, I view this concept as the Jews should have viewed the growing, tyrannical power of Hitler. When we look at the CIA’s Deagel projections, 90% of Americans will be gone by 2025 and then it will be full speed ahead to the 2030 goals of the globalists.

Getting Out of Dodge – Part 1

by Doc, Survival Blog:

In 1993, I was practicing in a large city and had a home on a lake in the suburbs. I had an attractive younger wife and life was good. I bought a new computer and was stopped in traffic on my way home while ahead of me, a backhoe was digging a hole in the street. I was hit from the rear by a truck loaded with pipe fittings. The truck had a sprinkler company sticker on the door, and was driven by a Mexican with no insurance. The impact was so great that my car was slammed into a stopped vehicle in front of me. The impact broke the CRT screen in the new computer monitor when it slammed into the back of my seat. The Mexican disappeared as did the sprinkler company. And the address on his license didn’t exist.

How CBD Oil Helped My Arthritis & Celiac Based Digestive Challenges

by Kathy Smart, Collective Evolution:

CBD oil. What is it? Why do we keep hearing about it? I’m going to share my personal experience with CBD oil as Holistic Nutritionist of the Year for Canada, and why it took the lead for me.

Cannabidiol is extracted from the flowers and buds of cannabis or hemp plants. It does not produce intoxication; marijuana’s “high” is caused by the chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

How to store meat long-term when living off-grid

by Zoey Sky, Natural News:

Preppers know that there are several methods that can be used to prepare meat for long-term storage. However, canning is one of the simplest ways to store meat when SHTF because it ensures that the food has a long shelf life.

Canning meat when you’re off-grid is similar to when you’re canning meat the modern way. If you have access to solar power, canning meat will be as easy as doing it in a modern kitchen. (h/t to BioPrepper.com)

Pressure canning is the recommended method of canning meat and low-acid vegetables to prevent a fatal kind of food poisoning called botulism. Botulism affects the central nervous system and causes facial and/or body paralysis. It is caused by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum.

America: A Nation In Lockdown – With Tanks Roaming The Streets Of America, People Are Going To Have To Learn To Survive Or Prepare To Die

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

As the image above and those interspersed within this article, shows, the National Guard has been spotted in Baltimore, Maryland, as their tanks roam the streets after the announcement of the second death caused by the COVID-19 Coronavirus.

While the DHS is refuting claims of the federally mandated nationwide lockdown plan, individual states and/or cities are implementing their own “martial law’ type measures. California, Illinois, and New York, were some of the first to issue stay-at-home orders, meaning to shelter-in-place, with exemptions for grocery stores and pharmacies. Multiple states have activated or put on standby their National Guard in preparation for locking down other cities and/or whole states.

“Farmageddon”: Trump Announces More Emergency Bailouts As U.S. Farm Debt Soars To $416 Billion

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

President Trump just announced yet another round of emergency bailouts for U.S. farmers.  This emergency aid will be greatly welcomed by countless struggling farmers, but a few thousand dollars won’t be nearly enough to save most of the farms that are on the verge of failing.  Coming into 2019, farm debt was already at a record high and farm bankruptcies were already rising.  But then crazy weather patterns made planting season a complete and utter mess, and more crazy weather patterns have turned harvest season into a major disaster.  On top of everything else, the Trump administration’s trade dispute with China has greatly reduced U.S. agricultural exports and hurt prices.  This has been an absolutely nightmarish year for U.S. farmers, and a series of government bailouts hasn’t done much to ease the pain.

FORGETTING SOMETHING? 5 OVERLOOKED BUG OUT BAG ITEMS

0

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

Sometimes when we put our bug out bags together, we forget some things that could be highly useful if something goes wrong.  Of course, you may or may not need these items or be compelled to add them to your bug out bag, but perhaps if nothing else, you’ll remember something that could be useful for your situation.

There are more than 5 items that I could have added to this list, however, these may be the most useful and most necessary to think about.

Prepper Blades: Which is Better the Blade vs. Tomahawk?

0

by Jeremiah Johnson, Ready Nutrition:

ReadyNutrition Guys and Gals, the stores are flooded with the types of knives and axes you can pick up.  So, what to buy, and why?  A simple question, fair enough.  One of the problems that people face is that they like an “all-around” tool with multiple functions, when there are different, specialty tools and weapons for diverse functions. Let’s compare tomahawks and knives, and see where we go to, alright?

Firstly, whether it is a knife or a tomahawk, the first essential is to know your tool and train with it to maximum capacity.  You should follow this principle in all you do with weapons, tools, or gear.

Here’s a rule to follow.  You need to be able to use your tool or weapon: 1. specifically, and then 2. generally

I will explain.  When you have an OSS Fairbairn-Sykes stiletto dagger, this blade is primarily a combat knife.  That is its specific function: to fight with, plain and simple.  In addition to this, you need to know the other capabilities the knife possesses and how to employ them.  An example is a “thrower,” or throwing knife.  The Fairbairn-Sykes can be thrown; however, this takes practice and it is not the knife’s primary function.  Its primary function is close-quarters combat and for stealth (such as sentry takedown, etc.).  I mentioned that you should always buy such tools and weapons in pairs: one to practice with, and the other to have in mint condition for use in the “real” world and when the SHTF.

Same for a tomahawk.  Oh, there are some that are really high-end, such as those made by Hibben, Schrade, Kel-Tec, etc., that can run you into the hundreds of dollars.  This is a combat weapon, and needs to be trained with as such: buy two and use one to train with and the other for when the SHTF.  That is the specific purpose of a tomahawk: not to cut sector stakes or firewood.  The tomahawk is not to be used for pounding in tent poles and then making kindling for your campfire.

And yet it can be used as such, as a general use if called for.  When would that be called for?  When you’re freezing to death and need to build a fire, and that’s all you have to cut dead fallen timber.  The need outweighs the original specialty use.  Tomahawks take a lot of practice to use.  Personally, I prefer throwing knives over tomahawks.  They cannot be used the same to cut wood and kindling or to chop, but as fighting implements, they are (for me) more accurate and reliable.  Also, you can mount one on the end of a staff and turn it into a spear either for defense or hunting (a secondary, general function).

As I mentioned in another article, Hibben makes (in my opinion) the finest throwing knives that money can buy.  Another factor about throwing knives that I like is the fact that they can be mounted on your vest and employed more easily and quickly than the tomahawk can be drawn.  On the other side of the coin, the tomahawk generally provides you with more reach on your opponent if you swing it rather than throwing it.  The decision is one of preference, but the point of effectiveness is the same for each weapon: training.

Bunker Mentality: Start Preparing for Ecological & Economic Disaster Free of Corporate Overlords

by Robert Bridge, Strategic Culture:

Let’s face it: reading stories about the ongoing destruction of planet Earth, the life-sustaining blue marble that all of us – aside from maybe Elon Musk – are permanently trapped on, has got to be one of the least-favorite topics of all time. The reasons are understandable, but no longer feasible.

In the realm of politics, replete with its cast of colorful culprits, the possibility of radical change always hovers just over the horizon, which gives the subject much of its universal appeal. Stories devoted to environmental issues, on the other hand, inundate the reader with a dizzying array of mind-boggling statistics that are not only incredibly depressing, they seem impossible to do anything about.

Elements of a Security System – Part 1

by by J.M., Survival Blog:

When you talk to people about preparing, one of the most common themes you’ll encounter is that they want to ensure the safety and security of themselves, their families and their friends in the event something disrupts the ‘rule of law’. The reality is that even with active law enforcement in normal times there are thousands of break-ins, assaults, attacks, thefts and other crimes committed against people and property every day. Since most of us can’t afford to keep an eye on our entire property 24×7, we need some type of force multiplier that can let us know when an intruder is approaching or entering our property.

It’s the preppers who are laughing now

Since the crash of 2008 much has been made of the fact that the world did not end or the sky fall in on us – unless of course you are one of the people who have been touched by bankruptcy, homelessness, addiction or even suicide as a result of the crash. The truth is that, since the financial collapse, life has not improved, improved very little or even got worse for a huge number of individuals around the world.
