Ever wondered if you live close to a potential nuclear target?Even if you live in a small town or rural area... don't think you are safe. Not all strategic targets are in heavily populated areas. Find out if your county is close to ground zero.
This is an article that I had to share once I came across it.
While i’m not saying I’m pro or against anyone running for President of the USA right now. I just want to state that it’s really messed up that this has been proven FACT and it is still okay for Hillary to run.
It just seems like something is off in America, and something needs to be done to fix it.
Here’s the original article source
There is no way of getting around this: According to Director James Comey (disclosure: a former colleague and longtime friend of mine), Hillary Clinton checked every box required for a felony violation of Section 793(f) of the federal penal code (Title 18): With lawful access to highly classified information she acted with gross negligence in removing and causing it to be removed it from its proper place of custody, and she transmitted it and caused it to be transmitted to others not authorized to have it, in patent violation of her trust.
Director Comey even conceded that former Secretary Clinton was “extremely careless” and strongly suggested that her recklessness very likely led to communications (her own and those she corresponded with) being intercepted by foreign intelligence services. Yet, Director Comey recommended against prosecution of the law violations he clearly found on the ground that there was no intent to harm the United States.
In essence, in order to give Mrs. Clinton a pass, the FBI rewrote the statute, inserting an intent element that Congress did not require. The added intent element, moreover, makes no sense: The point of having a statute that criminalizes gross negligence is to underscore that government officials have a special obligation to safeguard national defense secrets; when they fail to carry out that obligation due to gross negligence, they are guilty of serious wrongdoing.
The lack of intent to harm our country is irrelevant. People never intend the bad things that happen due to gross negligence. I would point out, moreover, that there are other statutes that criminalize unlawfully removing and transmitting highly classified information with intent to harm the United States.
Being not guilty (and, indeed, not even accused) of Offense B does not absolve a person of guilt on Offense A, which she has committed. It is a common tactic of defense lawyers in criminal trials to set up a straw-man for the jury: a crime the defendant has not committed.
The idea is that by knocking down a crime the prosecution does not allege and cannot prove, the defense may confuse the jury into believing the defendant is not guilty of the crime charged.
Judges generally do not allow such sleight-of-hand because innocence on an uncharged crime is irrelevant to the consideration of the crimes that actually have been charged. It seems to me that this is what the FBI has done today.
It has told the public that because Mrs. Clinton did not have intent to harm the United States we should not prosecute her on a felony that does not require proof of intent to harm the United States.
Meanwhile, although there may have been profound harm to national security caused by her grossly negligent mishandling of classified information, we’ve decided she shouldn’t be prosecuted for grossly negligent mishandling of classified information.
I think highly of Jim Comey personally and professionally, but this makes no sense to me.
Finally, I was especially unpersuaded by Director Comey’s claim that no reasonable prosecutor would bring a case based on the evidence uncovered by the FBI. To my mind, a reasonable prosecutor would ask: Why did Congress criminalize the mishandling of classified information through gross negligence?
The answer, obviously, is to prevent harm to national security.
So then the reasonable prosecutor asks: Was the statute clearly violated, and if yes, is it likely that Mrs. Clinton’s conduct caused harm to national security? If those two questions are answered in the affirmative, I believe many, if not most, reasonable prosecutors would feel obliged to bring the case.

This is absolutely terrible to see. If you have children you can imagine what was going through this Mom’s mind..
Surveillance footage from a Dollar General store in Hernando on Tuesday showed how a mother tugged at her 13-year-old daughter as suspect Craig Bonello, 30, brazenly attempted to drag her out of the store.
Luckily, Citrus County Sheriff’s Deputy Jonathan Behnen had pulled into the store’s parking lot and heard the clerk yelling just as the attempted kidnapper ran out and got in his vehicle.
“When I first saw him run out the building, I thought it was just a shoplifter,” Behnen said at a press conference.
Bonello was charged with child abuse and kidnapping with intent to commit a felony, according to police.
“This is obviously someone who needs to be behind bars. He won’t be getting out anytime soon to do this again,” stated Commander Buddy Grant.
“Thank goodness the girl’s mother jumped into action to prevent this man from kidnapping her daughter. And, thank goodness Dep. Behnen used his training and experience to stop this man from escaping,” Grant said.
If you know the story (or perhaps you’ve seen the Hollywood film, The Big Short) where Michael Burry and a few other traders were able to spot the looming housing market crash of 2008, you know that these guys are on their game. So, when Burry says there’s another important commodity to focus on,we better listen. Right?
So, what is it, you ask.
If you’re thinking about investing in bottled water companies or buying land where the water comes from, you’re off-base. Burry explains that the real value in water trading is the food that holds it. Fruit and other foods that grow in water-rich areas can be easily transported, while water is a pain to move around.
“Fundamentally, said Burry, “I started looking at investments in water about 15 years ago. Fresh, clean water cannot be taken for granted. And it is not — water is political, and litigious. Transporting water is impractical for both political and physical reasons, so buying up water rights did not make a lot of sense to me, unless I was pursuing a greater fool theory of investment — which was not my intention.
“What became clear to me is that food is the way to invest in water. That is, grow food in water-rich areas and transport it for sale in water-poor areas. This is the method for redistributing water that is least contentious, and ultimately it can be profitable, which will ensure that this redistribution is sustainable. A bottle of wine takes over 400 bottles of water to produce — the water embedded in food is what I found interesting.”
Perhaps he’s right. Perhaps there are other ways to disperse water to those that need it, but if profit is your game you should be looking at one of the most valuable commodities on the planet. H2O.
On the next page is a video where he also discusses investing in water, gold and land, similar markets.
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.
