    Flouride

    Flouride is Not Good Fluoride was used by Nazis to sterilize inmates and make them docile. Fluoride a key dumbing down ingredient of Prozac and Sarin nerve gas — poisons of choice for tyrant rats. If this is new to you, please go and look at the toothpaste box or tube and read the medical warning. One of the most commented-on pieces I did last year was the one on fluoride in toothpaste. The result was amazing as people did not know this was going on, and most told me they had thrown out the usual toothpaste and bought fluoride-free instead First of all, it needs to be stated that…

    What’s The Code?

    Imagine if you will, TSHTF and TEOTWAWKI is on your doorstep. ROL is no longer, the LEOs are gone, and OPSEC is crucial to CYA. It is a GDE from a CME that produced a massive EMP. You are now thinking you won’t be able to SIP and you might want to GOOD. You jump into the BOV to make a run for the BOL which is OTG. Getting ready to go, you grab the BOB which is a nice MOLLE setup that will incorporate the EDC; which alone might not cover it and you could have ended up SOL. With your MREs, you head out thinking to yourself INCH.…

    The EMP – What To Do

    Starfish Prime Does anyone recall that name?  What it means when we are speaking of an EMP? The first human-caused EMP occurred in 1962 when the 1.4 megaton Starfish Prime thermonuclear weapon detonated 400 km above the Pacific Ocean. It was a test of a thermonuclear weapon one hundred times bigger than what was dropped on Hiroshima, Starfish Prime resulted in an EMP which caused electrical damage nearly 900 miles away in Hawaii. 900 miles for one weapon?Considering that this was detonated in 1962, how much more damage could follow from the numbers of weaponry in today’s arsenal?

    The EMP

    We read about this thing called an EMP in lots of places; from blog posts and emails like this one to books and papers outlining this event and even into fiction. But what the heck is it, actually? Many know that the EMP was first noticed in the United States in the 1950s when electronic equipment failed because of induced currents and voltages during some nuclear tests. In 1960, the potential vulnerability of U.S. military equipment and weapons systems to EMP was officially recognized. But do you know the damage it can do? a high-yield explosion of approximately 10 megatons detonated 320 km (200 miles) above the center of the…

    Considering Prep Stores

    Rotate… OpSec… Food Stores… Canning Butter? Holy smokes, Batman. Can you say rabbit hole? There are things we can do that are free or cheap to prepare ourselves. Sometimes, it is not about what we acquire but how we secure it. Some things we consider with Op Sec are apparent: keep an eye over your shoulder and be aware. But what about the things we tell people without saying a word? Scenario: Today, you go to the store… While there, you buy some extra flour because it is on sale. You chat with a friend and mention concerns over the current climate and how you found a sale and stocked…

    Old Man Winter

    I live in New England. That should tell you everything you need to know about why this subject is crucial to our preparedness mindset. Mainly because I am freezing my tail end off! I am not a fan of winter and never have been. Early in the season, it begins with rain that freezes, then thaws in the day and refreezes at night. This makes for a nasty scenario when you are like me and your nickname is “Auntie Boo Boo.” Seriously, they call me Auntie Boo Boo, and for good reason. I’m the person who falls UP the stairs, trips over imaginary things, or finds a single patch of…

    Top 10 Books for Reading Prepper Fiction

    We spend an amazing amount of time researching preparedness articles, watching videos, and working hard at learning things to do to be prepared. Let’s talk a little bit about the practical applications of these things and how to find ways to see them in action without actually having to go through the apocalypse. I might be biased when it comes to my top ten choices because I spent my whole life preparing and thinking about them there was no question when I wrote my first fictional book what I wanted it to do.
