Preparedness Notes for Saturday – August 26, 2017

August 26, 526, is the official anniversary of the invention of toilet paper by the Chinese. We celebrate this, though not because of its convenience. In fact, it has many shortcomings, some which are described within the articles and letters of SurvivalBlog. Our celebration of it is primarily because we now have an official metric of just how hard core of a prepper you are as well as a metric for just how economically unstable your country is. August 26, 1946 is also the official release date of George Orwell’s “Animal Farm.” Thanks for reading, check out for more news! The post Preparedness Notes for Saturday

Breakenridge: It’s too soon to assess NDP’s response to Fort McMurray wildfire | Calgary Herald: “Two weeks into the biggest crisis faced by Premier Rachel Notley and her new government, the consensus appears to be that they have handled it exceptionally. Obviously, the success in saving much of Fort McMurray falls to the firefighters themselves, but insofar as her own duties are concerned,

Australia: Multiple Deaths Reported After Muslim Yelling “Allahu Akbar” Mows Down Pedestrians With Car

But worry not. According to the PC police it had absolutely nothing to do with Islamic terror. This particular Muslim man was simply “mentally ill” like the “prophet” of Islam himself. Thank goodness for that! I’m sure such wonderful news will bring great comfort to the victims and their families … Hadith, Bukhari 2977, “I have been made victorious with terror” – The “Prophet” Of Islam, Mohammed Qur’an Sura 33:21, “Indeed in Allah’s Messenger (Mohammad) you have an excellent example to follow for him who hopes in (meeting with) Allah and the Last Day …” Reuters – “A man deliberately drove into pedestrians, killing four and injuring more than 20, in the center of Australia’s second largest city of Melbourne on Friday, but police …

You, Me and the Apocalypse (2015-) TV series

A refreshing British comedy with very dark moments (violent murders) in which a group of related and unrelated misfits come together in a bunker in Slough, England, to wait out the impact of a comet/asteroid. This TV series premiered in the UK in September 2015 and in North America in January 2016. In addition to being set in Slough, other locations include Rome, Italy, and New Mexico, USA.

The Remaining (2014) movie

Imagine the Christian “Rapture” event as a horror film and you have The Remaining, a 2014 Christian-horror movie. Combining elements of cinéma vérité, mainly the handheld camera, the film follows a group of 20-somethings after the events foretold in the Bible’s Book of Revelation unfold following a wedding reception. The movie is graphic in some of its imagery. As with many of these movies based on someone “documenting” the events with a video camera, the end of the film leaves many questions unresolved.

Sweden: Muslims Stream Three-Hour Rape On Facebook Live

If their “prophet” were alive today, he’d be live-streaming every rape and war crime possible. For peaceful purposes … Al Rod Al Anf, Volume 2, Page 182: “You see our god Allah will soon make you inherit their land, their treasures and make you sleep with rape their women.” – The “prophet” Mohammed Revelation 9:21, “And they did not repent of … their sexual immorality …” By Patrick Knox, The Sun – “TWO migrants from Afghanistan have reportedly been arrested over the three-hour gang rape of a woman that was broadcast on Facebook Live. The two men, aged 18 and 20, who are both from Afghanistan, were arrested in the city at the weekend after police were tipped

Surviving and Preventing Identity Theft

Not completely being the normal survive the apocalypse topic per se, I have chosen to throw this out there, as surviving this scenario will avert a personal apocalypse.  I’m talking about identity theft.  It is singularly the most ridiculous thing I have ever experienced in the pre-apocalyptic world. I had been going through a particularly busy fall, so did not think too much about checking my online banking statements on a regular basis.  Not to mention the fact that I am SO not a target, I do not have anything one would want!  Before work one morning in late November, I figured I should do my civic duty, logon, …

Apocalypse for the Ladies

Let’s face it ladies, when the worst comes to the worst, we’re probably going to have a harder time adapting to our new situation than men will. Not because we’re weaker or smaller or can’t function without high heels or whatever, but because our bodies are generally more high maintenance than men’s’ are. I don’t mean more high maintenance in the sense we take longer to get dressed in the morning, but once society has broken down it’s going to be a lot harder to find things that we’re used to having, or alternatively, getting used to things that we’re not used to having. Body Hair Yes, I know we usually portray ourselves as graceful magic nymphs, all soft skin and smooth …

North of 60: Dog Sledding, Ice Caves, Snowboarding and Mountain Summits with Mandy

Back in January, I went on a climbing trip to Mexico. I had a great time climbing the amazing multi-pitch limestone walls out there, and enjoying the beautiful Mexican landscape. But I also met someone, and ultimately fell in love with this person, over the course of several months, writing e-mails and letters and postcards and talking over Skype. That person, Mandy, decided to come visit me in Whitehorse for two weeks in late March / early April. Wanting to impress her, and convince her that the Yukon is a fantastic, magical place, we jam-packed our days with winter activities. Here’s a highlight of those events (in no order…

Syria: As the War Continues, WMD Lies Linger

August 18, 2017 (Tony Cartalucci – NEO) – Despite the now historical lies exposed in the wake of the devastating US invasion and occupation of Iraq beginning in 2003, the United States has attempted to use similar lies regarding weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) repeatedly as a pretext for similar wars including in neighboring Syria.The Syrian government – perhaps in an effort to head off another round of accusations, threats, and direct military aggression carried out by the US – is leveling accusations against the United States itself and terrorist organizations it has funded, armed, and backed for the past 6 years of using chemical weapons – primarily to create a pretext for wider war.Syria’s Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad stated at a press conference that the April 2017 Khan Shaykhun, Idlib chemical attack was…

My Little Harvest

A couple days ago I picked these off of my one pepper plant and two tomato plants. Not much I know but I am pretty happy to have them. I guess I feel like as long as I am growing something it will be alright until we get in a place where we can really have a decent garden.I got rid of most of the little pullets from all those chicks I hatched….I gave them away….I hadn’t intended to…and I didn’t give them all away but a neighbor had her dog get into her pen that had mysteriously gotten open one day (possibly from an neighborhood kid) and her dogs killed all her chickens except 3 roosters. I …

SIG Sauer P320 Public Service Announcement

It came to the attention of Guns & Ammo early last week that the commercial variant of SIG Sauer’s P320 pistol, under certain conditions, can unintentionally discharge if repeatedly dropped at a negative 30-degree angle onto a concrete surface from a height of at least 4 feet. G&A staff and a handful of other media visited SIG Sauer’s United States headquarters last Monday, Aug. 7, to meet with SIG Sauer executive staff, engineers and project managers to discuss its P320 — all of whom had tirelessly worked over the weekend to pinpoint and finalize upgrades to make the P320 even safer. Over the weekend, SIG Sauer engineers conducted 2,200 drops using 11 pistols across three different test protocols, including dropping the pistol at a negative 30-degree angle. This image illustrates …

Virginia Military Institute’s Cadet Rifles

For more than 20 years leading up to the founding of Virginia Military Institute (VMI) on Nov. 11, 1839, the Commonwealth of Virginia used an arsenal building at Lexington to store Richmond-manufactured arms in the western part of the state. Arms included the U.S. Model 1795 and the Model 1816 muskets from Harpers Ferry Armory and Springfield Armory. Once VMI was formed, the institution obtained rifles that were reduced scale and shortened for virtue of a student’s young age. These variants would eventually be described as Cadet rifles and were purchased by many military schools. In 1864, 257 VMI cadets marched 85 miles and fought to victory at the Battle of …

Free For All Friday 5-8-2015: Carry positions

I hate to talk about this kind of stuff but it still needs to be mentioned. I’m big on transparency so sometimes these discussions will come up. I fund the majority of this site via my own wallet. It makes money from ads, mind you, but it’s really just enough to pay the hosting fees. On top of that, a large majority of the internet uses ad blockers so I’m only getting ad revenue from a fraction of my visitors. As the traffic is growing, the hosting fees are rising and I’m looking for other ways to fund the site. One thing I was looking into was Patreon. …
