5 Guns To Guarantee Your Survival No Matter What The Situation!

We’ve all seen the debates about which guns are best to have in different situations.There’s everything from Tips for First Time Gun Buyers to selecting a gun for your bug out bag.

So today, we wanted to talk about 5 Guns to Guarantee Your Survival.

When it comes to situations where you need to be putting meat on your table for your family, it’s often better to have a rifle instead of a hand-gun. A high-powered rifle with long-range power should be in every survivalist’s arsenal.

Not just from the standpoint of these high-powered rifles being extremely fun to shoot, but when it comes to dangerous situations these are one of the most useful.

But, we all know that a handgun can be useful in those instances where carrying around a rifle is not a possibility.

So, what is the best survival gun no matter what the situation?

Depending on your situation and where you live, you’ll want to keep different things in mind. I spent some time researching this topic and came across an article that nailed the subject on the head. I would be doing you a dis-service if I didn’t just share that article with you.

So rather than act like I’m the smartest guy around (only in my own mind), I decided to share the following excerpt from Ranger Man at shtfblog.com.

1) The Mighty AR-15!

This should really come as no surprise. My only guess as to why so many survival writers don’t list the “Black Rifle” as their top choice is because they want to set themselves apart from the pack. Like in politics, when you’re the man on top, you can expect attacks. There are very solid reasons for the AR-15’s extreme popularity and cult-like following. There are very solid reasons why its the #1 choice of the U.S. military and paramilitary groups (“AR-15” to include all variations). It’s the best – period.

Advantages: very common caliber; fast bullet with flat trajectory; highly adaptable platform that allows the user to meet mission specific needs; extensive options readily available; they’re everywhere (meaning so are parts); wide variety of available rounds from 55 grain to 75 grain, tracer rounds, steel penetrator tips, etc.; very, very light recoil; Made in the U.S.A., and in the case of Bushmaster, Made in Maine 😉

Disadvantages: smaller caliber than what’s found in other battle rifles; many moving parts; rather annoying to clean compared to other rifles; the gas system often comes under criticism for throwing the “gunk” back into the chamber (some call this “shitting where it eats”), though this problem has been remedied in some newer models (at a higher cost).

2) Ruger 10/22 Rifle

I can hear it now, “What!?” That’s right, the .22 rifle. It’s ALL about survivalism. Look, when TEOTWAWKI hits you’re going to want a rifle like the Ruger 10/22 for put some sort of meat on your dinner plate. Squirrels, gophers or the neighbors’ cats, the 10/22 is quiet, effective, and you can shoot all damn day for what it’d cost you to buy a 6-pack of PBR.

Additionally, a little recognized fact, Chechen rebels successfully used .22 rifles for sniping purposes against Russian troops in urban settings. The urban setting consisted of narrow streets and close buildings allowing these “snipers” to get exceptionally close to their targets. They strapped soda bottle silencers on them to further the effectiveness. I don’t care what you say about the .22lr, take one in the neck and you’ll think differently.

Advantages: already stated – go buy one

Disadvantages: none whatsoever

3) Compact 9mm Handgun

What’s a more common caliber than the .45 ACP? The 9mm. Unfortunately, it’s the most common handgun caliber in the United States used against police officers. Thugs love it. Love the 9mm, but don’t be a thug.

Advantages: cheaper to shoot than the .45 (and thus practice with); high capacity magazines; easier to conceal and carry

Disadvantage: less lead

4) AK-47

Image source: https://www.shootingillustrated.com/articles/2017/4/6/using-an-ak-47-for-self-defense/

It’s durable, designed to be thrown into a mud hole for a month when it can be dug out and immediately used without cleaning. That might be an exaggeration, but not by much. It also delivers a beefy round for a standard issue assault rifle. If you’re outside the United States, there’s likely readily available parts and ammunition.

Advantages: banana clips, baby; jungled clipped banana clips, baby

Disadvantages: lacks the accuracy found in other assault rifles; made in China, or Russia, or Yugoslavia – you get the idea.

5) Remington 870 12 Gauge Pump-Action Shotgun

*shhhick-shickt*
Let’s hear that again.
*shhhick-shickt*

The sound is undeniable. You hear that and you instantly know what it means, “You wanna roll with me?” The only reasonable response is, “errrr . . . . nah, I’ll move along.”

You can get a shotgun that’ll take a bigger shell, but you don’t need it. The 12 gauge is exceptionally common and it’ll take a variety of shells: birdshot for game hunting survival purposes; double-ought buck for pushing intruders not only down, but back out the window they came in through; and slugs for anything else.

Advantages: common caliber; many accessories available for this model (pistolgrips, tube extensions, etc.); obscene knock-down power

Disadvantages: none come to mind

You Won’t Believe This Stupid New Law Against Cash & Bitcoin

Have you seen this?

Authored by Simon Black via SovereignMan.com,

 

This one is almost too ridiculous to believe.

Recently a new bill was introduced on the floor of the US Senate entitled, pleasantly,

“Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Counterfeiting Act of 2017.”

You can probably already guess its contents.

Cash is evil.

Bitcoin is evil.

Now they’ve gone so far to include prepaid mobile phones, retail gift vouchers, or even electronic coupons. Evil, evil, and evil.

These people are certifiably insane.

Among the bill’s sweeping provisions, the government aims to greatly extend its authority to seize your assets through “Civil Asset Forfeiture”.

Civil Asset Forfeiture rules allow the government to take whatever they want from you, without a trial or any due process.

This new bill adds a laundry list of offenses for which they can legally seize your assets… all of which pertain to money laundering and other financial crimes.

Here’s the thing, though: they’ve also vastly expanded on the definition of such ‘financial crimes’, including failure to fill out a form if you happen to be transporting more than $10,000 worth of ‘monetary instruments’.

Have too much cash? You’d better tell the government.

If not, they’re authorizing themselves in this bill to seize not just the money you didn’t report, but ALL of your assets and bank accounts.

They even go so far as to specifically name “safety deposit boxes” among the various assets that they can seize if you don’t fill out the form.

(Yet another reason to consider storing cash, gold, and silver in an overseas safety deposit box.)

This is unbelievable on so many levels.

It’s crazy to begin with that these people are so consumed by the fact that someone has $10,000 in cash.

But it’s even crazier that they’re threatening to take EVERYTHING that you own merely for not filling out a piece of paper, without any due process whatsoever.

Oh, and on top of civil asset forfeiture penalties, there are also criminal penalties.

Right now according to current law they can imprison you for up to FIVE YEARS for not filling out the form. Five years.

But apparently that doesn’t go far enough to protect us against evil men in caves.

So this bill aims to double the criminal penalty to TEN years in prison.

And if that weren’t enough, this bill also gives them with new authority to engage in surveillance and wiretapping (including phone, email, etc.) if they have even a hint of suspicion that you might be transporting excess ‘monetary instruments’.

Usually wiretapping authority is reserved for major crimes like kidnapping, human trafficking, felony fraud, etc.

Now we can add cash to that list.

It’s not just government spy agencies to worry about, either.

Banks in the US are already unpaid government spies, required by law to fill out suspicious activity reports on their customers.

Then Congress started expanding those requirements to include other businesses and industries that might come into contact with cash.

Stock brokers. Casinos. Currency exchanges. Precious metals dealers. Pawnbrokers. The Post Office.

According to the law (section 5312 of US Code Title 31), those industries are also required to spy on their customers for the government.

But under this new bill, they want to forcibly recruit even more unpaid spies, including any business which issues or redeems ANYTHING that’s prepaid.

Prepaid credit cards. Prepaid phones. Prepaid retail gift cards. Prepaid coupons.

So, Amazon.com, which issues and redeems prepaid gift cards, will be required under this bill to file reports to the government.

For that matter, TGI Fridays and Chuckee Cheese will also become unpaid government spies since they both issue and redeem prepaid vouchers.

Truly these Senators have figured out how to strike at the heart of ISIS.

Further, their bill wants to pull any business which “issues” cryptocurrency under the anti-money laundering regulatory umbrella.

Here’s where these people demonstrate that they have no idea what they’re talking about.

No one “issues” Bitcoin. There’s no Bitcoin central bank. There’s no Chairman of Bitcoin who decides on a whim to increase the supply.

Bitcoin is created automatically amounts that are pre-determined by its code. It’s software.

So the Senate is essentially trying to force the Bitcoin core software to comply with money laundering regulations.

How pathetically clueless.

The bill also attempts to drop a major bomb on Bitcoin by including it in the list of monetary instruments that must be reported when entering or leaving the US.

So theoretically if you leave the US with more than $10,000 in Bitcoin or Ether, you’d have to confess this fact to the authorities or otherwise face the aforementioned penalties, i.e. prison time, civil asset forfeiture, etc.

As Smaulgold.com’s Louis Cammarosano  explains, the bill contains a provision that would require the Secretary of Homeland Security and the Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection to devise a “border protection strategy to interdict and detect prepaid access devices, digital currencies, or other similar instruments, at border crossings and other ports of entry for the United States, including an assessment of infrastructure needed [emphasis added] to carry out the strategy.”

The respective Secretary and Commissioner would present their findings to Congress no later than 18 months after passage of the bill.

The obligation to declare amounts in any form over $10,000 exists, irrespective of whether custom officials have a way of detecting such holdings. Since digital currencies technically travel with the holder where ever the holder goes, one would have to declare one’s entire crypto portfolio each time the holder entered the U.S.

Such a declaration is not required for travelers who may happen to have bank accounts or precious metals worth more than $10,000 stored outside the United States.

The type of infrastructure required to detect foreign holdings may come in the form of (i) expanding Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act to currently unregulated foreign crypto currency exchanges and to non U.S. citizens. FATCA currently only applies to U.S account holders of certain foreign financial and non financial institutions; (ii) some type of global monitoring of blockchain activity; or (iii) extreme vetting at the border and penalties for non disclosure that would encourage full disclosure.

HOORAY FREEDOM!
As you can see, this bill criminalizes or delegitimizes the most mundane and harmless financial activities, all under the guise of keeping us safe.

Of course nothing in this bill is about keeping people safe.

ISIS couldn’t care less about forms and penalties.

This bill is nothing more than another weapon in their ongoing War on Cash… and now cryptocurrency too.

Do you have a Plan B?

The Ultimate Guide to Living Off The Grid

The Ultimate Guide to Living Off The Grid

There are numerous disadvantages to having your life tied to the grid. Firstly, it means that you have to adhere to all the set rules created by whoever is in charge of the grid. The people in charge of the grid are not really concerned about taking care of the environment. Thus, by living on the grid, you are contributing to the slow death of the Earth.

Living off the grid means that you are insulated when disaster strikes. For instance, if war breaks out, your survival will not depend on the ability of those in charge to keep things running. The grid is derived from the ‘electric grid.’ However, it refers to various utilities such as food, water, and other amenities you need to survive.

Understanding What Living Off the Grid Will Mean Personally and Legally

Recently, there has been a lot of misleading information spreading, claiming that living off the grid is illegal. However, these articles are not wholly wrong. Government regulation has made it more difficult for people to live off the grid. After all, the government would lose the most if everyone suddenly went off the grid.

In some places in America, regulation has made it illegal to collect huge quantities of water or to have solar power, which is not tied to the grid. In some places, you may even be prevented from living in a travel trailer or to camp on your land. In other places, they have created regulation that makes it hard for you to build an off grid home. It is done by creating strict building codes.

Additionally, the banks are not very willing to lend on off-grid homes. Thus, it would seem that off-grid living is becoming quite difficult in America.

Differentiating Off Grid Living From Self-Sufficiency

Some people tend to intertwine these two terms. However, being self-sufficient does not always mean living off the grid. Living free of public utilities does not always make you self-sufficient.

By being self-sufficient, it means that you do not rely on others for food, power, defense, shelter, and many others. However, getting off the grid is a first step to being self-sufficient. Self-sufficiency is a long and complex journey that will require a lot of commitment to the course.

Getting an Off-the-Grid Source of Electricity

If you are going to be living off the grid, you will probably need some electricity. Some of the best methods for getting power off the grid are solar power and wind turbines. The choice of electricity source that you use will depend on your locality.

Click here to get a free solar quote.

In some places, it could make a lot of sense for you to use solar power because you receive plenty of sunshine. In other places, it would make more sense for you to use wind energy, especially if you live on a slope that receives high amounts of wind. In some places, it would make more sense to use both solar and wind.
However, in all cases, you will need some kind of storage component for off the grid electricity. Wind and solar are intermittent sources of electricity. It means that they only work when there is wind or the sunshine respectively. Ensure that you choose a storage battery that has a long life and a huge capacity. Besides that, you will have to combine it with other technologies such as cloth lines and LEDs. They use less electricity, which allows you to conserve the limited power produced by solar and wind sources.

Use Micro Hydro for Off-Grid Power

If you are going to live off the grid, micro hydro power is probably your best bet. This type of electricity source only requires a source of running water and some elevation. The force of gravity will do the rest. The water will move to the bottom from the top, and the momentum will be used to turn the turbines.

The good thing about micro hydro power is that it is constant. Unless the river dries up, you will always have power in your home. It is thus important that you choose the source of you micro hydropower carefully. You should ensure that it does not dry up seasonally.

Otherwise, you will need to have an alternative for when it does dry up. If you do not have a stream running through your land, micro hydro is not a viable option.

Be Prepared to Look for Your Food

One of the most time and resource consuming activities of living off the grid will be trying to find your own food. For instance, you will need to learn how to track wildlife for protein and how to grow food sustainably.

Creating food systems is not easy. Depending on how big your family is, it could take you up to ten years to get the system implemented. It is important that you plan for every aspect of your food production system without being in a rush.

Once you are done implementing the system, you will now need to focus on harvesting and storage. After you have managed to implement a system, you can expect to spend a significant amount of your time maintaining your system. You should also be prepared to do quite a lot of studying. You will have to read various books written by experts on how to create a sustainable food system.

You Will Need to Find Water

If you are living off the grid, you can do without most things, but water is not one of them. You will require water for keeping clean, cooking, and drinking. Otherwise, your attempt to live off the grid will fail.

One of the most common methods used is to drill for water.

However, that may not be possible in some areas because of fracking. You will be forced to use other methods to access your water. To pump the water from the ground, you can use wind or an electric pump.

If you have wind power, it is the best option since it consumes the least amount of energy. One way of getting an alternative source of water is by using rainwater collection. If you live in an area that receives good rainfall, ensure that you collect every drop you can. However, you will need to install a system to treat the water. That way you avoid drinking water that has been contaminated by bird droppings.

You will also need to have a major storage tank. The water level sometimes gets too low for you well during the dry months. Have a storage vessel that can hold at least 1000 gallons of water. If your water pumping equipment fails, you will still have a source of water before you can do repairs. Set the water collection tank in such a way that it collects water and delivers it to you by gravity.

Reduce Water Usage

Besides having enough water, you will need to reduce your usage. In America, everyone uses about 100 gallons of water daily per person. In comparison, people in Africa use about 5 gallons daily per person. That is clearly and an indication that you may need to make a few adjustments to how you live.

You will need to purchase appliances that are water-efficient such as dishwashers and laundry machines. That way, you will reduce the risk of running out of water while living off the grid.

Building Your Off-Grid Home

If you are going to live off the grid, you will want to come up with a house that is not hooked up to the grid.

Additionally, you do not want to use conventional materials to come up with a house since that would go against your desire to be independent of the grid.

Why It is Important to Use Natural Materials

Cement production is one of the most environmentally polluting activities on earth. Besides that, it requires huge amounts of energy to produce just one bag of cement. The waste produced by cement factories is also not recycled. If you use natural materials, you will be reducing the impact you have on the earth, which one of the reasons for off grid living.

Some of the most common materials used in off grid living are straw bales, sawdust, wood chips, sticks, and earthy materials. The most common earthy materials used are earthbags, adobe, rammed earth, cob, sand, stones, and rock. Other materials often used for off-grid house construction are coconut, sisal, cork, and bamboo. These are all fast-growing plants that can be renewed with ease. You can learn more about that here.
The best way to determine what material you will use is by looking at your area. If you find that there is sand, clay, rocks, or lime, that may be what you should use. The main reason for using materials in your environment is that you will not have to transport them over long distances. The energy used to transport materials over a long distance usually contributes to environmental pollution.

Consider Using Trash

Most people are familiar with the use of old tires, used bottles, and even soda cans for home construction. Constructing a house with tires usually entails packing tires full of cement or earth and stacking them on top of each other.

However, a less common but effective source of construction material is debris from construction sites. If you know of an old structure that is being brought down, you can opt to acquire the existing materials to construct your house.

For instance, old doors, the roof tiles, and the kitchen counter tops may be re-used for your project. Many companies out there buy debris from demolition sites and use it to construct new homes. Consider using one of these companies to construct your off grid home.

Always think About Size

The average size of homes in America today is double what it was about 50 years ago. A big home uses a lot of energy and resources to construct. If you are living off the grid, you do not want a structure that will cost you a lot just to live in.

Consider coming up with a home that only has as much space as you need. You may also opt to purchase a modular home that comes with everything you need.

You can learn more about how to live off the grid in a tiny house here.

 

Sewage

You will require a waste disposal system if you plan to live off the grid. If you have already installed a septic system, you are already living off-grid. That means that your waste does not go to the waste treatment plant. However, if you do not have a septic system, it is still possible to live off-grid.
You home will generate two kinds of wastewater when you live off the grid. The first is black water and the other is gray water. The gray water does not have to be wasted. It can be used to flush the toilet or for purposes of watering the garden. By using it in this manner, you will have reduced your water usage footprint a great deal.
You now have the black water to deal with. This water results from the attempt to get rid of human waste from the home. The best way to get rid of this water is to use a composting toilet. The system captures it and puts it in the same compost bin as kitchen waste, grass cuttings, and kitchen scraps. Consequently, the wastewater is converted into fertilizer for use in your garden.

Summary

While living off the grid is a huge effort, it can be done. An average person with basic knowledge on home construction and mechanics can turn this into a reality.

If you are going to go off grid, you will also need to think about efficiency. Otherwise, you may have to expend excessive amounts of energy just to survive.

If you are efficient, it also means that you will not need to use as much money. It is a great way of making your dream of one day being wholly self-sufficient a reality. Many people are already doing it and you can too if you are committed enough.

The Art of Raising Off-Grid Kids, And What They Have To Say About It

I guess we all have an impression in our minds about what off-grid kids might be like.  The movie Captain Fantastic does a pretty good job of showcasing one side of it, although it’s very Hollywood based.

But there are so many variables…. the Fouch Family came from a traditional “on grid” life and now has come into their new life of becoming homesteaders.

Now their experience continues to progress as the stories they tell will become more and more from the voice of experience.

Raising Off-Grid KidsScreen Shot 2017-01-16 at 11.26.15 AM

Here’s what our kids, ages 7, 5, and 2 have to say about the simple life. Some voiceover from their parents, explaining things, as the kids show off their make-believe Sarlacc and some Olympic-style bed jumping.

What police are being forced to do now is SICK

This is what we’ve come to.

With all the politically-correct activism against supposedly rampant police brutality against citizens, where every action law enforcement takes under stress when every second counts is under scrutiny, we now have the most ludicrous and dangerous recommendation from an activist police commission as to what police should do when confronting someone armed.

Run away.

police-1000x640

And tragically, this is not a joke.

 

From the official blog of the Los Angeles Police Protective League, If a police officer is confronted by a suspect with a weapon, those entrusted to set policies for the Police Department believe officers should run away.

 

That’s the recent finding from the Los Angeles Police Commission which has turned Monday morning quarterbacking into a weekly agenda item at the three-ring circus they preside over every Tuesday morning. In the Commission’s most recent decision on an officer-involved shooting, in which a suspect charged at two officers swinging an 8 to 9-inch knife, they faulted the officer for not “redeploying” to “create distance.” In plain English: the officer didn’t run away.

 

The key facts in this case are not in dispute. A female suspect, armed with an 8 to 9-inch knife, charged at officers, repeatedly ignored commands to stop, and was recorded yelling “shoot me” as she swung her knife from side to side.

The armed suspect quickly closed the gap between her knife and the police officers from 70 feet to less than 5 feet in under 10 seconds. That is when the first officer discharged his service weapon. The second officer involved had only three seconds to respond to the imminent threat. Even the Commission stated that “It was reasonable for Officer C to believe, in the moment when the use of force occurred, that the subject would imminently assault him with the knife.”

So where’s the beef?

The officers didn’t run away.

Suspect charging from the front. Vehicles on either side. Where do you “redeploy?” Run backwards. This is absurd and it’s dangerous. What happens if the officer loses his footing with a charging suspect? What happens if the suspect runs into a nearby home or store and confronts its occupants with her weapon? What if the suspect also had a concealed gun?

What is created when an officer turns tail and runs away is a large target. It’s called a back. The officer would put their lives in further jeopardy by running away if the suspect had a gun. At this close range, running away would create a self-caused danger to the officers and the public.

It sure must be easy to talk about “redeploying” an officer’s position while sipping a Diet Coke or bottled water while sitting in a police-guarded, air-conditioned room, in a cushy office chair, watching the events unfold in slow motion on a big-screen TV.

The message the Los Angeles Police Commission is sending to officers confronted with a violent and dangerous suspect is clear: You can save your life or save your job, but you cannot do both.

Liberalism is neutering our law enforcement. It has already neutered our military – literally and figuratively, as transgender troops are welcomed and Rules of Engagement are made so stringent, warriors like Clint Lorance end up in jail for actually killing the enemy.

The inmates are running the asylum and already criminals are owning the streets. Not surprisingly, police recruitment is struggling and morale is plummeting. In Chicago for example, police stops are down by 90 percent as violent crime skyrockets.
https://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20160331/bronzeville/chicago-police-stops-down-by-90-percent-as-gun-violence-skyrockets So far this year, 3,182 people have been shot in the Windy City, 494 fatally. Only eight of those killed were officer-involved shootings. That’s just 1.6 percent – hardly an epidemic, but you’d never know that from reading the liberal media.

Nobody volunteers to become a police officer if the job description includes “sitting duck,” “target” and “impotent.”

No wonder gun sales to private citizens are skyrocketing across the nation. Who’s going to protect us if the people who are supposed to are told they cannot?

This is absolutely insane.

Guess What? We May Be Moving to “Mandatory Vaccines”

While browsing around on the Internet, like you might be doing right now… I came across something very disturbing.

Something that I personally hate to see.

Something that pisses me off at my core…. Here it is…

…and it’s coming from Hillary Clinton, no less. Someone who has recently had a lot of issues with her health. Seriously, why listen to someone who isn’t in peak condition? Here’s a look into Hillary’s health 

Yes, I know. All of the potential candidates for Presidency are terrible in their own way and I don’t want to be biased about anything. I just want you to be AWARE that this is happening.

 

(NaturalNews) As the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announces their new plan to detain individuals and medicate them against their will, the government is stating very clearly: your body isn’t yours. Individual rights no longer exist. You are our subject.

This is the antithesis of freedom, a mockery of personal liberty, and an open invitation for abuse.

A Clinton CDC would initiate a witch hunt against those who seek health freedom and natural immunity

Make no mistake about it. These new CDC police state powers, under a Hillary Clinton presidency, would be procured, endorsed, and set into motion. This is because Clinton believes in mandatory vaccinations. If Clinton takes control of the CDC, then there will be a covert war against individuals who seek freedom from the medical system.

Those who do not comply with rigorous CDC vaccine schedules will be tracked down as if they are vector of disease, a menace to society. Those who rely on their own immune system to ward off illness will be stalked and hunted down like they are witches. Just like in Nazi Germany, the officers will just do their jobs and follow CDC orders.

A Hillary Clinton presidency will inevitably unleash a culture of forced healthcare. We’ve already seen this kind of force initiated with the passage of the Affordable Care Act, which now coerces individuals to pay into the health insurance industry or face erroneous fines for failing to comply.

A Hillary Clinton presidency would further depart from individual liberty, taking away a person’s right to treat themselves how they best see fit.

A Hillary Clinton presidency will unleash a culture of authoritarian vaccine pushers who suddenly gain the so-called authority to arrest people and have them forcibly vaccinated. A preview of this atrocity is already being carried out on children.

Governments, hospital authorities, and vaccine pushing pediatricians’ already try to project authority over parents, using the “Child Protective Services” to kidnap children from parents who may simply want a second medical opinion for their child.

This is why it’s important to stay armed and trained in self defense. It’s no coincidence that Clinton advocates for government control over your body and government control over firearms, drastically limiting your rights to self defense.

Who owns your body?

There are several reasons to refuse a vaccine, but these reasons don’t matter if the government claims ownership over your body. Under these authoritarian circumstances, you are being declared property of some higher authority.

With over 50 shots being pushed on toddlers in their first six years of life and with over 250 new vaccines in development, how will this forced experimentation affect you and your children for years to come?

More importantly, what have we become if we allow ourselves to submit our bodies to the authority of these pharmaceutical companies and their so-called authority?

click-here

That’s why this election is important, for rejecting slavery and for choosing health care freedom. An individual is responsible for their own health.

The many facets of the natural immune system are always at work and rely on interconnected factors involving lymph movement, vitamin D manufacture, detoxification, cord blood, breast milk antibodies, microbiome diversity, stress management, cellular oxygen and energy production, and synergy of nutritional elements.

The inevitable spread of communicable disease is necessary for individuals so they can naturally acquire and strengthen their immune system in real time. Stopping this natural process by detaining individuals and forcing compliance to endless vaccine mandates only perpetuates compromised immunity in the long run. (Vaccines are full of toxic elements too.)

Healthcare freedom and science transparency desperately needed

We need better public knowledge about the benign viruses and bacterium that we must face. The hype and fear surrounding outbreaks should be replaced with a better understanding on how to naturally strengthen the immune system.

Also, we need transparency to better understand what our man made science of vaccines is doing to our genetics and brain function.

You cannot continue to bypass the body’s exocrine system and gastrointestinal filters with vaccine pathogens that are grown in aborted fetal cells or animal cells, and expect to strengthen an individual’s immune system.

Vaccines destroy individual immunity over time, changing the very nature by which people are exposed to pathogens. Also, several vaccine given at once, are a threat to a child, not a protection. The adjuvant in the vaccines, typically aluminum, are used to inflame the immune system to respond, but how does this barbaric method lead to autoimmune reactions, allergies, and nervous system disorders later in life?

There’s no way of proving that vaccines are the sole reason why people have acquired immunity to a specific strain of virus or bacteria. It’s only a belief that vaccines prevent illness, apparently not backed up by results in real life. There needs to be greater clarity with the “science” with greater understanding of how nutrition utilization is the safest way to strengthen the body to fight inevitable pathogens, that don’t have to deadly and debilitating.

Most importantly, at the end of the day, it should always be your body, your choice.

How To Pick A Good Hunting Knife

What makes a good hunting knife.  There are five basic aspects that are very important, steel that can hold an edge, type of build, handle fit and feel, shape and function of the blade and the carry sheath.

Lets look at each of these.

1) First, you need a good piece of steel.

The blade must hold and edge well and be durable. Quality damascus fits that requirement great. If you are in the market for a damascus knife know that, while it holds a great edge, it requires maintenance.

Damascus represents an art of design and a level of craftsmanship commitment that gets passed on to the owner.

how to pick the perfect hunting knife

The maintenance is not a big deal but if you know you are the type of guy who doesn’t appreciate your tools to that level you should go stainless.

If maintenance free is your goal there are a few stainless options. The most important thing, again, is to be sure you get one that holds an edge and is durable.

There are many stainless options on the market these days and while some are great, some are garbage. Remember, the point of stainless is less maintenance but you want to achieve that without much compromise of its blade function.

For my money, D2 tool steel is the best choice for a knife.

While it is just under being considered true stainless it needs very little care and will hold an edge like to other.

One draw back, some say, is that it is harder to sharpen than a cheaper steel and that is true, you must spend a little more time getting the edge.

But when you are in the field and need a knife to cut and finish the job it is your steel. Being able to sharpen the blade easily is a plus so stay away from multi-faceted edged blades.

 

2) Second, the knife should be a full tang.  Period.

 

3) Third, the handle has to have excellent hold-ability even when it is bloody, wet or covered in fat.

I prefer the timeless unfinished wooden handles.

However, they need to be maintained by oiling them once in a while. If not they will absorb blood etc and and they can dry out and crack over time.

Raw wood is in the same class as damascus so do some honest soul searching before committing to your knife purchase.

If you find you are a maintenance free guy new resin based materials, such as G10, are great. The benefits of G10 is it is impervious to liquids, stable and very durable. The cons is they are fairly unimpressive in looks.

Definitely function over form.

Different layering of G10 can create a unique and desirable look if you can find the product. KRYTON handles have good surface grip but it does absorb moisture.

When cleaning fish of butchering the blood and other fluids will absorb into the handle and eventually that can get nasty. The most important factor is control and that is achieved by a good hand fit to the handle.

An intentional ergonomic design that stays in place should be sought out.

 

4) Fourth, the shape of the blade will determine how it functions.

If you want an all purpose knife you will need a blade that is strong enough to separate joints yet has a tip that is nimble enough to fit in awkward places.

It is also needs to have some belly in the blade towards the tip of the knife for skinning. I would stay away from fad gut hooks, mostly rookies use them and they get in the way when butchering. They are also very hard to sharpen.

The people who like them do so for the look and not the function and I admit I have seen some cool looking gut hook knives but they ate not going with me in the field.

Also, you don’t want a blade that is too long. I find that anywhere between 5-8 inches in blade length works well for whitetail size game.

 

5) Another thing commonly overlooked is a good sheath.

Most modern hunters don’t wear there knives in the field. They throw them in their packs and pull them out when needed.

However, if you wear yours in the field be sure that sheath has a strap or at least be sure it holds the knife firmly in place.  Is sad to lose a $150 knife walking through the woods in the dark because you had a good knife resting in a poorly fitted sheath.

Follow these tips and you should end up with a knife that becomes a beneficial partner in the field for life.

Good luck and safe hunting this season from all of us at Bliss Knife Works.

Natural Substance to Get Rid of Roaches, Fleas and Even Lice

 Get Rid of Roaches, Fleas and Lice

Getting rid of bugs like cockroaches can be a real pain, especially if you’re the type that doesn’t want anything to do with dangerous chemicals and toxins. A couple of the most recommended ways to naturally get rid of roaches are to use borax or boric acid. Technically, yes, they can be considered natural. But they still pose plenty of risk, mostly to babies, young children and pets. So what else is there? What would you say to the fact there’s something even better…; something that is natural and safe. So safe in fact, that you can ingest it or use it for healthier, more beautiful skin and nails? Well there is. It’s called Diatomaceous Earth.

 

Diatomaceous Earth is sometimes referred to as simply “DE”. This powdery substance similar in texture to talc is formed from the fossilized remains left behind by marine phytoplankton. There a bunch of ways you can use it. One of the primary ways people use it is to get rid of insects and bugs, whether that’s in the house or in the garden. Especially roaches.
Diatomaceous Earth Food Grade 10 Lb

Getting Rid of Roaches

 

According to Pest Killed, it works in two ways to rid your home of cockroaches. When they’re exposed to it, this substance will basically dissolve their exoskeleton outer wax-like layer. Secondly, the naturally strong and sharp debris from the powder will lacerate the bug, which leads to dehydration and eventually death. And even better? Other roaches around will eat the dead roach, ingesting the sharp particles that will in turn kill them too from the inside out. And the cycle continues.

Getting Rid of Fleas

DE can also help get fleas under control. Similar to how it kills roaches, the little bitty silicon gradules found in diatomaceous earth grind down in through the small holes found in flea joints and their respiratory system. With each breath and with every move the flea makes, it grinds away at the exoskeleton. It eventually leads to dehydration and death. Simply apply it to a pet’s fur and to any carpet that may have fleas embedded in it.

Natural Head Lice Treatment

With school pretty much back in full swing all across the country, there’s one thing every parent dreads…; a child being sent home by the school nurse due to head lice. Traditionally, it’s always been treated with very harsh chemicals (ouch!) or old wives tales that may or may not work (mayonaise anyone?). But this is yet another reason to keep some diatomaceous earth around. You can massage it into the the hair, let it sit overnight and wash it out the next day for a safer, more natural way to get rid of lice. Though DE is generally recognized as safe, Wellness Mama warns not to let the child breath in too much of the dust to be on the safe side.

But Wait…; Beautiful Skin, Heart Health and More?

Food grade diatomaceous earth is considered safe for human consumption. Note, we aren’t talking about the big bags of the industrial stuff, but food grade. Some experts believe, and research shows, that DE may even be used to lower cholesterol and improve heart health. It’s also used in many skin care products and some people use it to make their own toothpaste because its a naturally strong abrasive. You can use any of your favorite DIY toothpaste recipes, replacing baking soda with DE.

Hacked messages of #BlackLivesMatter leader reveal Obama admin’s plan for ‘summer of chaos’ and martial law

U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch is coordinating with Democratic activists to so disrupt the upcoming Republican and Democratic National Conventions that martial law will be declared.

That’s the stunning discovery revealed in a series of direct messages between three activists.

On Friday, June 10, 2016, someone hacked into the Twitter account of #BlackLivesMatter (BLM) leader and former Baltimore mayoral candidate DeRay McKesson. McKesson later confirmed the hack to The Baltimore Sun.

On June 11, 2016, a Twitterer who calls himself The Saint (@TheSaintNegro) tweeted a direct-message conversation on June 10 between KcKesson and another BLM leaderJohnetta Elzie (Netta), in which the two discussed talking with Attorney GeneralLoretta Lynch about plans to bring on martial law by causing chaos at the upcoming Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, and theDemocratic National Convention in Philadelphia, PA, so as to keep Obama in office.

#BlackLivesMatter Martail LawHere’s the conversation over the course of several days between black activists DeRay McKesson (DM) and Johnetta Elzie (JE), and between McKesson and a “white ally” named Sam (S):

JE: “Have you spoken with Mrs. Lynch [Attorney General Loretta Lynch] recently about the plan for the summer and fall leading up to the elections.

DM: “We spoke two weeks and they want us to start really pushing how racist Trump is now instead of waiting so the others can start getting the protesters ready to shut both conventions down.

DM: “If we can get both conventions shut down for messing over Bernie and for having racist Trump, then get martial law declared so Obama can stay in office we will win. Call you soon when I get to my dads so I can use his landline and we can talk more on this.”

DM: “We have to make sure that we use our voices to keep people disrupting Trump all summer and through the fall so martial law can be declared….”

S: “I wanted to touch base with you about the summer of chaos. So far we have over 2,000 people bused in from different cities and another 6,000 to 8,000 expected to drive into Cleveland for the Convention.”

S: “They will not be ready for the crowds we are bringing and they will blame Trump for it, especially if we shut it down. The GOP will have to replace him at that point or we will continue the disruptions nationwide.”

DM: “I will pass the info along. Good work, Sam. You never let us down. It’s so important we stop Trump. He can not be president. He will destroy everything we worked so hard for and we can’t trust….”

DM: “…today and he [Sam?] confirmed that there will be around 10,000 protesters disrupting the [Republican] convention. Plans are being made for other cities as well for upcoming Trump events. Ads have already been placed looking for people to help. I know you don’t care for them [white people] but this is the time we need our white allies doing a lot of the work for us. They are the ones who listen the best.”

JE: “That will put fear into the GOP and the country when they can’t have their convention for all their racist supporting Trump. We’ve worked too hard and closely with the Obama administration to have that racist ass take it all away and Hillary…. You know I can’t stand those white allies, but yo right this is the best to use them. They hang on every word you say and will do whatever is asked. I just hate all that kiss ass they try to do. Like that changes who they are.”

DM: “We have a lot of white allies volunteering for Trump’s campaign to pass along information to us before it’s made public so we know when rallies are coming up before they are announced. That way we can plan major disruptions in those cities in advance. We just have to keep our names out of this and let these [white] people do the work for us by pushing how Trump’s racist ways will destroy….”

JE: “That’s all those white people are good for in my eyes. I couldn’t imagine even pretending to like that racist ass Trump even to get info on his events. I’ll be glad when we shut his ass down.”

DM: “With the support we have from Mrs. Lynch and the help we’ve got from Sam and others it won’t be hard to cause enough….”

Here are screenshots of The Saint‘s series of tweets:

#BlackLivesMatter martial law#BlackLivesMatter martial lawDeRay DM1bDeRay DM2DeRay DM3DeRay DM4The authorities seem to be taking the plan to disrupt the Republican Convention seriously.

As reported by Alice Speri for The Intercept, June 23, 2016, local police and federal agents from the FBI, DHS, and Secret Service are knocking on the doors of activists and community organizers in Cleveland asking about their plans for the Republican National Convention in July.

On June 29, 2016, Deray McKesson sort of confirmed the plan when he went public with warnings about “possible” protests at the DNC and RNC, as reported by USA Today.

In fact, a recent survey showed that as many as 67% of Democrats want Obama for a third term.

The Ancient Off Grid Heater Thats Far Better Than A Wood Stove

 

masonry-stove

Its the absolute most dependable, effective and secure method to create warmth using wood. So several houses today ask them to why do?

Masonry ovens have now been employed for generations across Belgium Germany and Scandinavia. However they were rarely found on The United States that’ll account fully for their comparative shortage in america in England and its own the first Uk impact.

On the basic degree, there is just a range a huge assemblage of stones that’s made to maintain and expand warmth made by a wood-fire. Constructed and whenever precisely created, a range may continue steadily to expand warmth for approximately twenty hrs in a nicely-protected house following the two’s extreme using -hr fireplace. Normally, although, a house may warmth in wintertime regarding ten to twelve hrs.

The brickwork within the fireplace was created to move the smoking via a program of stations that remove as you are able to prior to the smoking leaves just as much warmth the flue. There’s small creosote accumulation since a powerful fire can be used to heat-up the brickwork also it creates a fireplace that is very clear.

 

Well known National writer Mark Twain was therefore amazed using the brickwork range throughout a visit to Europe he authored about any of it, indicating misunderstandings about why America hadnt imported the heat design:

All-day-long and until previous night most areas of the area is likely to not be cool and comfy… Its area is cold: not and you are able to place your hands onto it anyplace get burned. Consider these specific things. One shooting is sufficient for that day heat created may be the identical most day, in the place of also chilly and also warm by becomes… This range could be adopted by America, but will America get it done? Number, she sticks within the range point to her very own afraid and fantastic innovations. Whichever breed’s National woodstove, is just a horror. More interest is required by it that the infant. It’s to become given each short for most incentive you’re roasted your time: as well as while, it’s to become viewed constantly and freezing another half…

When your wooden expenses is available in you and believe you’ve been helping a volcano. It’s undoubtedly unusual than they are doing that helpful traditions and products don’t distribute from nation to nation with promptness and increased service.

Preferably, there is a range made throughout the preliminary building of the house, but-its feasible to retrofit one. Monte crucial, although, is since it’s possible to consider everywhere in one to several lots the fact that there’s adequate assistance underneath the range. Another depth that is new is the fact that many brickwork shops placed and are made in a domiciles living space’s middle. This enables to any or all areas of the house for more effective rays of warmth.

 

Tale continues below movie:

There may be to some masonry range a-side advantage the addition of a stove within the brickwork. This really is another excellent off-the- solution regarding cooking from breads and pizzas also it functions very well.

The brickwork doesn’t get awfully warm at first glance as Twain stated. Unlike if handled a cast-iron range that may effortlessly burn anyone, rock and the packet in a range radiates warmth continuously in a heat that is reduced. It may be not as warm like a conventional wooden, although warm towards the contact -burning range.

Well-known supplies utilized in building contain fireplace- other along with packet, soapstone kinds of brick that keep and maintain warmth. You will find free standing masonry ovens as you are able to purchase, however an expert should really installs them and therefore are occasionally constructed in items because of their fat. There are also creating required security functions that require to become adopted due to the high temperature produced within the firebox and rules.

It’s an excellent resource if you should be residing without energy and gasoline since the brickwork range places off a regular warmth all night without excellent hassle.

Survivalist Cody Lundin Sues Discovery over Dual Survival Controversy

This is an article that we came across that was originally posted on offgridsurvival.com

It’s something that we have seen over the last few months, even years and wanted to share more with you.

Be careful who you are following and picking up tips from when it comes to off grid living and survivalism. It can be the difference between living and dying.

 

Former “Dual Survival” host Cody Lundin is suing the Discovery Network, claiming the scripted survival show’s producers purposely made him look incompetent and paired him with a problemed soldier who threatened to kill him on multiple occasions.

The trouble came to a head during the filming of the fourth season of “Dual Survival,” after the Discovery Network fired Lundin from the show and then made it seem like the Survivalist could not hack it during the so-called “wilderness survival situations”. But according to Lundin, the show producers may have been putting the crews, and the viewers lives at risk.

In a Facebook post, shortly after he was fired, Lundin wrote on his Facebook Page,

“It’s shocking to me that Discovery would treat anyone in this manner,” he wrote. “Programming of this nature must be produced and marketed in a responsible manner with the highest level of regard for the safety and health of the hosts, production personnel, and members of the viewing public. I have shared this message with them many times. Failure to observe this standard could have tragic consequences that, with proper precaution, can be avoided. There can be no compromise when dealing with people’s lives.”

Shortly after he told TV Guide:

“You’re dealing with people who have no experience in my profession who are making a show on survival skills,” Lundin says. “They asked me many, many times to do stupid s–t that I refused to do. ‘Fall into cold water so you can get hypothermic.’ ‘Scale that cliff.’ ‘Can you climb that coconut tree?’ I try not to put out dangerous s–t that’s going to be replicated by someone to their detriment. They hated me for it.”

In the suit against Discovery, Lundin is claiming producers made it look like he was losing it during filming; but Lundin claims the real problem came after co-host Joe Teti waved an ice axe around while threatening to bury Lundin on a mountain in Norway. He also claims that while shooting in Hawaii, Teti threatened to impale him with a spear.

Lundin alleges Teti, a former CIA operative with a disputed military record, said, “You better not blow this for me … I think you know what is going to happen to you,” TMZ reports. Lundin claims Teti showed him pictures of people he killed while in the CIA.

The bizarre saga of Discovery Channel reality star Joe Teti has taken many twists since he replaced the original Dual Survival co-host Dave Canterbury.

Almost immediately Teti became embroiled in controversy after a number of his former military commanders accused the host of padding his military resume, some going as far as accusing him of lying about his combat record and violating Stolen Valor laws.

According to a number of his former military commanders, Teti has been embellishing and perpetuating falsehoods about his military career.

“He’s an embarrassment to the Regiment,” retired Army Sgt. Maj. George Davenport told the Army Times in October 2014. “Teti was renounced by the Special Forces Association after nearly two dozen Special Forces soldiers accused him of misconduct. “He is no longer a member and cannot rejoin,” retired Army Col. Jack Tobin told the publication.

The Discovery Network has refused to comment on the lawsuit, or why Teti was eventually fired from the show and then barred from entering the Discovery Networks headquarters.
