Developing Self Reliant Food Sources in 2018
Host: James Walton I Am Liberty Audio player below!

Last week I did a podcast on the fact that American was bleeding out. We are losing our personal liberty at an astounding rate. The tighter packed we are into suburban life the faster these freedoms are draining. It is my goal to set as many people as possible, myself included, on a course towards self reliance.

Alaska Prepares For War With North Korea: Missiles Will Take Only 20 Minutes To Reach The State SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You


The state of Alaska is preparing for a potential war with North Korea.  The Alaskans are being urged not to evacuate though since should Kim Jong-Un launch a missile toward Alaska, it would only take 20 minutes to get there.

Emergency planners in Alaska have warned it will not attempt evacuations if a warhead is fired because time would not be on their side. Jeremy Zidek, from the states disaster planning team, will urge locals to find shelter rather than risk being caught in the open. He also urged families to have an emergency stash of food and water, flashlights and radios, and medical supplies including the anti-radiation pill Prussian Blue medication that lessens the radiological impacts on your body.

Tensions have escalated lately on the Korean peninsula after a series of missile tests in the hermit kingdom and propagandized media threats were made sentencing president Donald Trump to death.  Tyrant Kim Jong-un has since threatened a nuclear holocaust and there are fears the regime will soon have a missile capable of reaching the US mainland.

Zidek admitted that the states defensive facilities could be picked for an attack. Alaska is home to Fort Greely, where the US has interceptor rockets designed to destroy incoming intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs). The state also has missile defenses at the Pacific Spaceport Complex as well as radar warning systems at Clear Air Force Station.

We have the missile defense system here. We have missiles and radars in a number of different locations, Zidek said. Perhaps there would be some type of attack on those military facilities to try to hinder our ability to react to any missile launches. But Zideks warnings for Alaska get...


Sugar for Wound Care Survival Monkey Forums

Did you know you can use sugar for wound care and healing? I know that honey can help heal a wound but sugar? Researching I found that sugar is used quite often in other cultures to treat wounds. There have been studies done that show plain white granular sugar can heal burns, bedsores plus diabetic ulcers (sugar does not enter the blood stream). Bacteria cannot survive in sugar.

Mixing honey and sugar together is said to increase the healing process plus honey helps keep the sugar on the...

Tough Times ~ Monica Hay Quaker

"Have you noticed that empathy-producing experiences are great vehicles to channel our love? You can form an immediate kinship with someone who has walked in your shoes, and intuitively know the best way to support them. Believe me, if I ever encounter a mother of small children who is laid up with a broken ankle, I would be able to name ten needs off the top of my head and how to fill them. Also, if your dog ever got sprayed in the head by a skunk at six in the morning while you were trying to pull him out from under a pallet where the skunk was hiding, come talk to me. Tough times not only soften our hearts, but show us how to serve. A true gift will express appreciation, lighten a load, or add value to another person. What a relief that I don't have to shop for it. What a joy to know that we are here to be needed and purposeful, a shining light on the journey."

The Worlds First Space Nation Now Has A Satellite Flying Above The Earth SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You


On November 12, Asgardia cemented its presence in outer space by launching the Asgardia-1 satellite.  The nation is slowing coming to fruition.

The nanosat  is roughly the size of a loaf of bread and undertook a two-day journey from NASAs Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, the United States, to the International Space Station (ISS). It contains 0.5 TB of data belonging to 18,000 of Asgardias citizens, such as family photographs, as well as digital representations of the space nations flag, coat of arms, and constitution. While Asgardias citizens will remain based on earth, for the time being, the satellite launch brings the nation one step closer to space.
Asgardia-1 made its journey to the ISS aboard the OA-8 Antares-Cygnus, a NASA commercial cargo vehicle.
Now it must wait for about three weeks as vital supplies and scientific equipment are transferred from the NASA ship to the six people currently living at the ISS. The nanosat will then be detached from the NASA vehicle and begin its own orbital journey around the earth. Citizens data will remain in orbit for between five and 18 months, the typical lifespan of this type of satellite. It will then burn out and disappear.
Russian scientist Dr. Igor Ashurbeyli founded the worlds first independent nation to operate in outer space in October 2016. Named after a Norse mythological city of the skies, Asgardia is free to join and so far, about 114,000 people have signed up. Within 40 hours of the project being announced in 2016, over 100,000 people had applied for citizenship on Asgardias website. After three weeks, Asgardia had 500,000 applicants. Anyone over 18 years old, with an email address, regardless of gender, nationality, race, religion, and financial standing can apply for citizenship including ex-convicts, provided they are clear of charges at...

Safer Holidays | A Reason To Stay Inside on Black Friday Survival Life

We all know about the joys of Black Friday and the inconvenience that comes with the holiday, which give us more reasons to stay home. Check out the post below and find out why is it best to stay inside on Black Friday!

Black Friday: A Holiday Madness

It confounds me to no end that every Thanksgiving, a day in which we give thanks for all that we have, is immediately followed by a day created by retailers to prey on us by luring us in with the prospect of deep discounts on items on our wish lists. There are various reasons why it is better to just stay in the comfort of our home rather than head to the mall, which is like entering a mosh pit at a rock concert. If you dont mind getting bumped, shoved, and people violating your personal space for a doorbuster item, then go ahead, its your choice. But for those people who are having second thoughts of going out this Black Friday, here are some of the best reasons why you should sit this one out.


1. It is better to sleep in

It is better to sleep in | Safer Holidays | A Reason To Stay Inside on Black Friday
A 10% discount on a sweater is not reason enough to go out and cut the holiday short. Some people simply just want to stay home and sleep in. Waking up 4 A.M. or earlier just to get to the sales or wait in line for doorbusters is not worth it.

You probably still have a hangover from celebrating Thanksgiving and it is not the right time to drive or go shopping. It is better to spend more time with your fa...

A Good Guy With A Gun Stopped A Sexual Assault In An Uber-Leftist City SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You


A good guy with a gun in the uber-lefty city of Austin, Texas, used his Glock 43 to stop a sexual assault in progress while out on an early morning hike. Meanwhile, in the news thats not news, leftists continue to cry for more restrictions on guns.

According to The Blaze, Josh Williams, 39, almost left his handgun at home when heading out to the hiking trail on a dark morning back in September, but he felt the nagging sensation that he should take it anyway. His gut instinct turned out to be the right call because while on the trail at 5:30 a.m., Williams heard a woman scream loud enough to get past his music-blaring earbuds.

As Williams approached the area where the scream originated from, he shined his flashlight on a man who was sexually assaulting a woman. I came up, pulled my gun and told him to get off of her, Williams recalled. He then asked the man to get on his knees and asked to see his hands. That way I knew he didnt have a weapon. And at that point, he was no threat, so I didnt feel the need to shoot him, said Williams.

The assaulter took off, but police were able to later apprehend 22-year-old Richard McEachern and charge him with sexual assault.  A good description of his appearance by the victim and Williams aided the police.

That was the first time Williams had ever pointed his weapon at another person, but it confirmed for him the importance of the Second Amendment, and the victim was incredibly glad that Williams gut instinct told him to bring his gun with him that morning.

Its dark, and I dont know whats out there, so I have it to protect myself and other people. Thats what its all about anyway to help other people with it, not just myself. I didnt think Id ever have to pull it. Did I want to? No, not at all. But just right place, right time, Williams recounted.



Saudi Coup Signals War And The New World Order Reset SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

This article was originally published by Brandon Smith at


For years now, I have been warning about the relationship of interdependency between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia and how this relationship, if ended, would mean disaster for the petrodollar system and by extension the dollars world reserve status. In my recent articles Lies And Distractions Surrounding The Diminishing Petrodollar and The Economic End Game Continues, I point out that the death of the dollar as the premier petrocurrency is actually a primary goal for establishment globalists. Why? Because in an effort to achieve what they sometimes call the global economic reset, or the new world order, a more publicly accepted centralized global economy and monetary framework is paramount. And, this means the eventual implementation of a single world currency and a single global economic and political authority above and beyond the dollar system.

But, it is not enough to simply initiate such socially and fiscally painful changes in a vacuum. The banking powers are not interested in taking any blame for the suffering that would be dealt to the masses during the inevitable upheaval (or blame for the suffering that has already been caused). Therefore, a believable narrative must be crafted. A narrative in which political intrigue and geopolitical crisis make the new world order a NECESSITY; one that the general public would accept or even demand as a solution to existing instability and disaster.

That is to say, the globalists must fashion a propaganda story to be used in the future, in which selfish nation-states abused their sovereignty and created conditions for calamity, and the only solution was to end that sovereignty and place all power into the hands of a select few wise and benevolent men for the greater good of the world.

I believe the next phase of the global economic reset will begin in part with the breaking of petrodollar dominance. An important element of my analysis on the strategic shift away from the petrodollar has been...

Democrats Have Done It: Articles Of Impeachment Against Trump Introduced SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You


Democrats holding political offices have been threatening to impeach Donald Trump since he was elected a year ago.  Now, they have finally officially introduced articles of impeachment against the president.

Several house democrats introduced the articles of impeachment citing Trumps violations of the Constitution. But the six Democrats, Representatives Steve Cohen of Tennessee, Luis Gutirrez of Illinois, Al Green of Texas, Adriano Espaillat of New York, Marcia Fudge of Ohio, and John Yarmuth of Kentucky, said at a press conference that the five articles of impeachment come out of concern for the countrys national security.

We believe that President Trump has violated the Constitution, and weve introduced five articles of impeachment, Cohen said at a press conference. The lawmakers pointed to numerous actions by Trump that they say make him unfit to be president, but they singled out five severe actions by the president they say rise to a level meriting impeachment.

The articles of impeachment cite Trumps firing of James Comey which they believe to be an obstruction of justice, perceived violations of the Emoluments Clause (which prohibits federal titles of nobility), as well as actions undermining the judiciary and freedom of the press.

Given the magnitude of the constitutional crisis, theres no reason for delay, said Cohen, the sponsor of the resolution. The impeachment clause, Green said, was drafted for a time such as this and a president such as this. Green had introduced impeachment articles of his own last month, largely focused on accusations that Trump has sown racial and ethnic di...

Ex-Secret Service Agent Claims Biden Engaged in Weinstein-Level Groping SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

This report was originally published by Paul Joseph Watson at


An ex-Secret Service agent is claiming that former Vice President Joe Biden engaged in Weinstein-level sexual assault and that he would walk around the VP residence late at night completely naked.

According to Big League Politics Cassandra Fairbanks, a Secret Service agent who spoke on condition of anonymity revealed that Biden would mess with every single woman or teen, and that a Christmas get-together at the VPs house had to be canceled because Biden would grope all of our wives and girlfriends asses.

He also said that the Service often had to protect female agents from him and that Biden was prone to parading around the VP residence late at night with no clothes on.

I mean, Stark naked Weinstein level stuff, said the agent.

During one alleged incident in 2009, Biden cupped the breast of a Secret Service agents girlfriend during a photo, prompting the agent to shove Biden and almost hit him. The agent was subsequently suspended for a week, according to the source.

Men would often stand in front of female agents and Navy women or create false pretenses to have them leave the room just to get them away from Biden, according to the agent.

Best-selling author Ronald Kessler previously claimed in his book that Biden was fond of swimming naked and that female Secret Service agents found that offensive.

In a February 2015 article entitled What are we going to do about Creepy Uncle Joe Biden?, the Washington Posts Alexandra Petri highlighted a number of incidents where Biden made women feel uncomfortable by getting close and touching them.

There are innumerable videos online that show Biden touching children and whispering into their ears. A thread tweeted by Richard Armande Mills on Monday highlights an alarming number of these incidents.

Rabid Anti-Trumper Arrested For Threatening To Go On A Killing Spree SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You


A rabid anti-Trumper has been arrested in California for placing menacing videos of himself tossing around threats on YouTube. David Kenneth Smith, a 39-year-old leftist actually recorded himself threatening to go on a killing spree.

According to PJ Media, Smith was arrested in Orange County, California, on November 2 following an investigation involving the Joint Terrorism Task Force. He was charged with one felony count of making criminal threats after threatening a university professor through emails and posting threatening YouTube videos in one he talked about going on a killing spree. Police also recovered nine loaded firearms all registered to Smith after his arrest, according to Orange County Sheriffs Department officials.

Smith, who attended Soka University, sent an instructor a link to a YouTube video that showed him sitting with a semiautomatic pistol on his chest talking about the university, according to the Sheriffs Department. After Smith sent the menacing video, police were called by the instructor and Smith was arrested.

According to the LA Times, in another video, posted last week, Smith goes on a strange rant about choosing between suicide and mass murder in a video titled What Good Does Killing Ever Do? In that video, he explored the pros and cons of going on a killing spree, and decided that it sounded like a great idea compared to dying or committing suicide.

Should I be homeless or go on a killing spree? he asks in the video. I think being homeless is an entirely artificial situation. I wasnt born here to obey every rule you guys ever made, OK? I was born to be who I am.

Scientists Look For Signs Of Alien Life On Newly Discovered Planet SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You


A mere 11 light-years away from our Solar System, a newly discovered exoplanet is the second-closest weve ever found thats temperate enough to potentially host and sustain life. The Earth-sized exoplanet was just discovered and scientists are already searching for signs of life.

Ross 128 b orbits the inactive red dwarf star, Ross 128, in the systems Goldilocks zone. This zone is known as the area in perfect distance from a star to support life. The planet is also probably rocky, not gaseous; and its at a distance from its star that means the temperature could be hospitable to life as we know it.

It was found using the European Southern Observatorys High Accuracy Radial velocity Planet Searcher (HARPS) in Chile the most precise instrument of its kind. And it took researchers a long time to nail down. We started to observe this star in July 2005, astronomer Nicola Astudillo-Defru of Geneva Observatory told ScienceAlert. Since 2013, our monitoring started to be more intense, and only after acquiring 157 observations was the signal of the planet strong enough to be detected.

The researchers were able to discover the planet using the radial velocity method of planet detection. This method differs from the transit method we usually hear about but it shows this technique still has a whole lot of potential for finding new exoplanets.

Heres what we know about Ross 128 b so far. Its 1.35 times the mass of Earth. This means its most likely a rocky planet since as far as we know at least, gas planets tend to be giants.

Thats the other point in favour of Ross 128 b being a rocky planet: its relatively close to its host star. In fact, its 20 times closer to its star than Earth is to the Sun, and completes an entire orbit in 9.9 days.

Why isnt it too hot for life? Ross 128 is a cool...

Realistic Disaster Scenarios That Can Happen Survival Life

What disaster scenarios are most likely to happen that people should definitely be prepared for? While global disasters are almost impossible to predict, the world that man walked on for millennia has always posed as being an obvious threat to himself.

Disaster Scenarios and Global Threats to Prepare For

Throughout the years, scientists have continuously been finding ways to predict natural disasters before they actually happen. Theres been a degree of success in this area, thanks to the growth of modern technology. However, nature can still be very unpredictable and can easily claim so many lives in a short period of time. At the same time, there will be personal and local threats you will also face alongside global disasters.

North Korea: Donald Trump Is Sentenced To Death For Hurting The Dignity Of The Supreme Leadership SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You


According to a recent state-run newspaper editorial, the North Korean people are sentencing president Donald Trump to death because he used his free speech to condemn the harsh dictatorship.

The article says that the President offended the country when he denounced its cruel dictatorship during his tour around Asia and for those remarks, he should apparently be killed.  The worst crime for which he can never be pardoned is that he dared [to] malignantly hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership, the ruling party newspaper Rodong Sinmun wrote, according to The Independent. He should know that he is just a hideous criminal sentenced to death by the Korean people.

Trump was also condemned as a coward by the North Koreans for canceling his visit to the border because of inclement weather conditions. But the article said that the President was just too scared to face the glaring eyes of our troops, according to the AFP, which first reported the belligerent piece.  Trumps helicopter taking him to the DMZ (demilitarized zone) had turned back after just five minutes due to bad weather, an explanation the propaganda-driven government-controlled newspaper intentionally left out.

The visit was part of a marathon five-nation Asia tour by the US president aimed largely at galvanizing regional opposition to the Norths nuclear weapons ambitions.

Towards the end of his Asia tour, Trump may have helped increase tensions between the rogue state. He sent a tweet from Hanoi that took the verbal jousting to a new level, taunting the North Korean leader over his height and weight.

Why would Kim Jong-Un insult me by calling me old, when I would NEVER call him short and fat? he tweeted.

Essential Skills, Tasks, and Training for Preppers and Survivalists: Part 1 Ready Nutrition

For this article, were going to go into basic focus mode: you start out with the basics and build upon them.  This is the type of mindset and foundation that work for everything in life (basically).  You use it as a format in everything you do, such as building a home or when you begin an exercise program.  In this vein, were going to create a Training METL: A Mission-Essential Task List for your Training as a basis for well-rounding yourself.  This is Part 1 of a 2-part series.

What is your focus?  What type of work do you do?  How do you allocate your time?  A short time ago, I wrote a piece on the importance of self-analysis: creating a true picture of yourself, your strengths, and areas that you need to improve in.  This holds true here, as you identify and prioritize your goals, with an overall objective in mind.  Here is an overall objective for you:

To survive and thrive as you and your family develop physically, mentally, and spiritually to well-round yourselves and prepare for any disaster that arises.

Simple enough.  The Mission-Essential Task List for Training can become a big part in actually realizing that objective and maintaining it.  This METL (called Metal in the Army) for your use will use broad categories to train and prepare that you can refine as your needs change and your skills improve.  Lets start it off!

  1. Physical Training: It all starts here, with whatever you do to be able to hang with the big dogs!  Whether youre a Triathlete, a weightlifter, a boxer, or a swimmer, you need to take your personal forte and tailor it to the maximum productive capacity.  Outline your training schedule, plan short and long-term goals for improvement, and take copious notes!  If youre a swimmer, do you want to swim the English Channel?  If youre a marathon runner, do you want to set a personal record for yourself?  Want to up your max on the bench press by 50 lbs.?  Part of your training is to identify your goals, and work up to them.  Tie in what you can do with the tasks you will need to accomplish as a survivor.  This also has to do with your overall body fat content (what is your goal?) and your measurements of weight, and tape.  Physical training is not an accessory: it is a priority!
  2. Martial/Fighting Arts Training: thi...

Host: Lynna A Preppers Path Audio player provided!

The Great Divide for some will conjure up thoughts of the Continental Divide, a geological divide of the Americas by mountain ranges that drain to the Pacific and the Atlantic, but for others the Great Divide might be bring thoughts of music of a band so called and still others will think of a 2012 movie comedy while others will think of it in terms of society and those things that divide us.

Popocatepetl Violently Erupts, And Authorities Warn A Bigger Eruption Could Threaten More Than 20 Million People In Mexico City SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse


Mt. Popocatepetl is one of the most important volcanoes on the entire planet, and yet most Americans are not familiar with it. In ancient Aztec, Popocatepetl means smoking mountain, but to the locals the 5,426-meter-high volcano is simply known as Don Goyo. A catastrophic eruption of Don Goyo would be a nightmare scenario for the more than 20 million people living in the Mexico City metropolitan area, and that is why authorities are watching Mt. Popocatepetl very closely at the moment. In fact, we are being warned that the eruption that just took place could be a precursor to an even larger eruption

Chilling footage showing the violent eruption emerged online amid fears there could be more.

A huge plume of smoke blasted three kilometres in to the air from the summit of Popocatepetl after a series explosions over the course of 24 hours.

Surrounding towns were blanketed with ash and debris and authorities are now warning a bigger eruption could threaten the 23.6million inhabitants in the Mexican capital, located just 35 miles (56km) away.

This latest eruption actually resulted in what is known as a volcanotectonic earthquake. Such quakes are caused by the movement of magma, and scientists are very concerned about what that might mean.

Don Goyo has been spewing ash regularly since early this month, and at this point local residents are being told to remain indoors

Locals have been warned to avoid outdoor activities and to keep doors and windows shut, and it is not yet clear when they can leave their homes.

It has been emitting ash since the beginning of the month, reports suggest, before a string of explosions.

Of course the activity at Mt. Popocatepetl has been ramping up for quite a while. Back on Se...

What Would Happen To The World If The Yellowstone Super Volcano Erupted Right Now? SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You


With the looming threat of a possible eruption at the Yellowstone super volcano, some preppers have wondered exactly how to prepare for such a cataclysmic event. Here is what would happen should the super volcano erupt right now.

Yellowstones supervolcano is essentially a giant, lid-topped cauldron, and its so vast that it can only truly be seen from low-Earth orbit. Its crater is 45 miles (72 kilometers) across, and its underlying plumbing contains several tens of thousands of cubic kilometers of magmatic material. But if it were to erupt right now, we would have very little time to even know that it is happening.

IFL Science spoke to one of the countrys most respected volcanologists to get the most up-to-date low-down on the future of the worlds most famous supervolcano. Hopefully, it will give preppers and idea of what to expect in the unprecedented event that it actually explodes.

According to Yellowstone Volcano Observatorys Scientist-In-Charge, Dr. Michael Poland, the super volcano may not have enough energy at present to produce a supereruption. Right now, much of Yellowstones magma body is partially solidified, and you need a lot of magma to feed a large eruption. The chances of a supervolcanic paroxysm are currently around one-in-730,000, which makes it less likely than a catastrophic asteroid impact.

A sudden injection of new magma from b...

As the Black Death Plague Strikes Madagascar, Might We Soon Witness Bio-Component K For Kill Everyone?

According to this brand new story from The Express sent over to ANP by Steve Quayle, a NEW Black Death has been discovered in Uganda, a virus WORSE than plague with NO cure according to the World Health Organisation (WHO). Just the latest plague outbreak this year, ANP will be taking a look over the next several days at the unusual surge of black death plague and the next story in this series will feature an in depth interview with Steve Quayle.


In the map we see above taken directly from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) showing cases of the human plague across the United States between 1970 and 2012, one particular case should immediately stand out.

Back in 2009, a laboratory-acquired infection of Yersinia pestis, the disease that causes the black death plague now causing a panic after wiping out an estimated 60% of Europes population back in the 14th century, struck a 60-year old man who had been working at a university laboratory in Chicago, Illinois. The only known case of the plague in the eastern half of the US in 40+ years, the case also happened within the 2 years following the...

Europe Is The Prime Example Of What Is Coming To The United States: This Modern Invasion Makes Saladins Armies Pale In Comparison SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You


Normally this topic is covered gingerly, and with the 1st Amendment of the Constitution having been subverted by political-social correctness doctrines, it is sure to draw unwanted attention. Europe is the prime example of what is coming to the United States. Countries such as Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands, and Francethe heart of Warrior-Crusader Europe in Medieval timeshave absolutely kowtowed to what is nothing less than a Muslim invasion. This modern invasion makes Saladins armies pale in comparison.

The news is reporting the giveaway of traditionally Christian lands of European states to Muslim aliens crossing borders ceaselessly: on foot, by train, by plane, by carby boat. This is a mass exodus in all directions, targeting all nations. Oligarchs such as Soros, and Politicos such as Merkel are fostering this exodus, backed up by the International Court of The Hague.

The socialist-progressives want to destroy the ethnic homogeneity and religion, language, and culture of these nations to usher in globalism with the goal of railing in and controlling the Islamist extremists later (an organizing the organized strategy of Alinsky).

It will backfire on them. The Islamists will come in and establish a foothold, and anyone that does not submit among the unbelievers (the al-Harb, as non-Muslims are called) will be dealt with. Dar al-Harb is the house of war, phonetically translated from the Arabic. Take note of a close similarity to dal al-Garb, or house of the west. The two are interchangeable, due to the philosophy/doctrine that holds for jihad, or Holy War, an institution of warfare meant to extend the rule of Islam into the dar-al-harbinto the lands of the gentile unbelievers.

Guess what? Theyre doing it. America is beset from within by communists and socialists under the guise of progressivism who wish to completely destroy the borders, language, and culture of the United States. Their plan to use Alinskys organizing the organized and then deal with the Islamists later?

It is being used by the Islamists on them, in reverse.

Here is what they see: the proof of what is in the heart of the average man. I present to you a heated discourse between two individual commenters on Tess Penningtons Ready Nutrition website. You can visit the comments section under the article...


FDA Approves New Digital Sensor To Ensure Patients With Mental Health Issues Take Their Meds SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You


The Food and Drug Administration has just approved a new pill with a digital sensor in it. It will ensure that patients who suffer from mental health issues take their medicine when they are told. But privacy concerns have not gone unnoticed.

Regulators in the United States have approved the first bill that can be digitally tracked as it makes its way through the human body.  The Abilify MyCite aripiprazole tablets used for treating schizophrenia and manic episodes have an ingestible sensor embedded inside them that records that the medication has been taken. A patch worn by the patient transmits this information to their smartphone.

But many are raising the red flag that this could simply be another form of medical big brother. You may no longer have the right to refuse medications in the very near future.

The Abilify MyCite features a sensor the size of a grain of sand made of silicon, copper, and magnesium. An electrical signal is activated when the sensor comes into contact with stomach acid the sensor then passes through the body naturally. A patch the patient wears on their left rib cage receives the signal several minutes after the pill is ingested. The patch then sends data like the time the pill was taken and the dosage to a smartphone app over Bluetooth. The patch also records activity levels, sleeping patterns, steps taken, activity, and heart rate, and must be replaced every seven days. The patients doctor and up to four other people chosen by the patient, including family members, can access the information. The patient can revoke access at any time. The Verge

Is it really hard to understand why people are raising concerns about privacy over this new pill? The pill is one way to address the prevalent problem of patients not taking their medication correctly. According to the IMS Institutes estimates, the improper and unnecessary use of medicine cost the US healthcare sector over $200 billion in 2012.

But, the approval also opens the door for pills that are used for other conditions beyond mental health to be digitized and monitored, and could eventually le...

Prepping For War? Army Lifts Ban On Mentally Ill And Drug Abusers To Meet Recruiting Goals SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You


Is the United States Army preparing for a war? It certainly feels that way after they recently lifted the ban on joining by the mentally ill, cutters, and drug abusers in order to meet the recruitment quotas.

Facing extremely low recruitment levels, the U.S. Army quietly (meaning they hoped no one would notice) lifted its ban on allowing people with a history of mental illness, self-mutilation and drug abuse to serve in the military. The ban was lifted despite warnings from the industry about the risks involved. According to Fox News, the new rules green-light recruits who have bipolar disorder, depression, and issues with cutting (a process of self-harm in which a person takes a knife or razor to his or her own skin) along with those who bite, hit or bruise themselves intentionally. They also allow those with a history of drug abuse to sign up.

I am shocked, Craig Bryan, executive director of the National Center for Veterans Studies at The University of Utah, told Fox News. This contradicts everything we have been working toward for the past 10-to-15 years. Bryan says there is strong evidence to indicate self-injury is a stepping stone to suicide and is the single strongest predictor of suicidal behavior. The Army already has the highest rate of suicide when compared to all other branches of the military. The change in policy reverses an eight-year ban on the waivers following a spike of suicides.

Which begs the question: what exactly are they recruiting all these people for?

The decision to lift restrictions comes as the military looks like it will miss its goal of recruiting 80,000 new soldiers through September of 2018. This new policy was signed off in August but they never announced it, according to USA Today, which first reported on the change.

In order to hit last years goal of 69,000 recruits, the Army also accepted men and women...

Trump Says He Will Make A Major Statement When He Returns To The US SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge


After a 12-day tour through five Asian countries where he discussed the threat posed by North Korea and how America might shrink its massive trade deficits, President Donald Trump is heading back to the US Tuesday. And in true Trump fashion, the president hinted that he would be making a major announcement upon his return to the states but offered no clues about what the topic of said announcement might be.

Heres the tweet, sent around 1 a.m. Eastern Time:

Of course, theres a lot happening in Washington right now, and Trumps hinted-at announcement could be in reference to one of any number of issues. Will he deliver an update on the administrations position regarding tax reform as two bills that differ in dramatic fashion wend through Congress? Perhaps some type of security announcement? Or the revelation that the US has finally entered into talks with North Korea after Trump adopted a notably softer tone toward his favorite Asian antagonist over the weekend?

Theres also the possibility that he could deliver an official statement about Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who Trump previously said should do the right thing and step aside if allegations about him having inappropriate sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl turn out to be true?

Shortly before his teaser tweet about the upcoming announcement, the president hinted that he had made some major breakthroughs on behalf of the USs trading relationship in the region, claiming that the USs regional partners now understand that trade deficits must come down?


South Korea: It Wont Be Easy For North Korea To Destroy Nuclear Arsenal Because Its So Advanced SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

South Korea's new President Moon Jae-In speaks during a press conference at the presidential Blue House in Seoul

According to South Korean President Moon Jae-in, it wont be a simple task for North Korea to destroy their nuclear arsenal even if they wanted to. Moon says that because the communist nations weaponry is so advanced and more developed than most realize, simple destruction isnt possible.

North Korea is under heavy international pressure to end its weapons programs, pursued in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions. But it has vowed never to give up its nuclear arsenal giving a metaphorical middle finger to the United Nations. According to Reuters, speaking to reporters in the Philippines, Moon said that if North Korea agreed to hold talks, negotiations could be held with all options open.

If talks begin to resolve the North Korea nuclear issue, I feel it will be realistically difficult for North Korea to completely destroy its nuclear capabilities when their nuclear and missile arsenal are at a developed stage, Moon said in a briefing. If so, North Koreas nuclear program should be suspended, and negotiations could go on to pursue complete denuclearization. But talks, according to Washington, arent in the works. 

Last week, the North said it did not oppose dialogue, but would never put the issue related to the supreme interests of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea (DPRK)  and security of its people on the bargaining table.

We are not interested in such dialogue and negotiations in the least, the Norths official news agency said, referring to the country by its official name, the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea. The North defends the programs as a necessary defense against Washingtons plans to invade. The United States, which has 28,500 troops in South Korea, and a legacy of involvement in the 1950-53 Korean war, denies any such intention.

United States President Donald Trump has...
