Bringing me to the next point. You will need certain tools, to keep the noise down and also to conserve fuel. Here they are:
Your ax is going to be used to fell dead standing timber and also to segment large-diameter trees that would take forever with a bowsaw. None of the methods are totally silent, however, in comparison to the chainsaw, they are. This is a reason that I place so much emphasis on cutting wood in the off season: that is to say, dont wait until the fall. Cut wood throughout the summer.
Heating is one thing, but cooking is another. If you need to prepare food, youll need that fireplace or woodstove to be well-fueled. When youre trimming branches, if theyre about four inches in diameter or less, use the short-bladed bowsaw. The longer blade is used on your larger pieces, up to about a foot max. Then it is up to you to quarter them with your ax, your maul, and your splitting wedges.
If you have a fireplace or a woodstove, you need to measure the diagonal inside length, knock it down a couple of inches, and form a template for yourself. I use an old 1 x 4 piece for myself. This way you can use that piece of board to set against the edge of your log and scribe to make a cut for the piece to fit in your fireplace or woodstove. This will save you a lot of time measuring, and you can keep the template for a long timejust make sure it doesnt become mixed up in your wood supply.
After the SHTF, you can also bring pieces into your basement to saw and chop away at to reduce the noise. You want to cut wood at times when there are other noises around to cover your activities...

This article is a few years old but an interesting read. The
author IMO took liberties to prove his point. I think having Tommy
the Tool in an underground BOL with children was losing scenario
from the beginning. The author also makes it sound easy to organize
a neighborhood (400 people he says) which is not that easy. Most
people will be in a panic so implanting the Green Beret way of
doing things would be quite a task so establishing relationships
prior to an event would be vital.
Think like a Green Beret vs. Doomsday Prepper
The Leveraxe is supposedly a new innovative way to split wood.
It is supposed to make things easier than using a traditional axe.
I have read a few articles and watched a few videos. The demo video
by the manufacture had me questioning the axe. I noticed that they
were cutting at the edges which leave you with smaller blocks of
wood; this seems to be what the designer was aiming for. Plus when
using this, one has to put their wood in a tire. After striking the
wood, the axe tilts and helps...

In my opinion, it is a total waste of time, energy and money, to
buy a composting toilet.
Okay, so maybe I have been watching too many homesteader / prepper videos, where "composting toilets" was the topic of the day. But, I like simplicity in my life. Having to deal with one of those seems like a complete waste of time. In fact, I saw where one guy was forced to install a proper water run toilet in his home. (I believe it was a fairly recent video on the...
Composting Toilets: Why do people use them?
This is kind of new to me.
How would I go about accessing this currency?

What are the fees?
How easy and quick can it be exchanged?
If I buy say $2,000 or 3k worth of bitcoin in the next year, then that amount say quadruples a few years later and I have $8,000 to 12k would would be the obstacles to cashing out?
I could just blow it all on merchandise, like gold or silver if prices were good. Assuming coin and bullion dealers...
Who uses bitcoin, or maybe you know a guy who knows a guy that uses it?
The United States (and the world) has been using the worthless fiat federal reserve note that is not backed by any true tangible asset. The only backing is not even the full faith and credit of the United States government, because the government is too far in debt to have any credit. Faith disappeared a long time ago: our faith in elected officials as public servants. Instead, they serve themselves upon the labors of the public, and the public services them, in every sense of the word.
Cryptocurrency is an illusion. The new shell game is to replace one illusionthe fiat currencywith another illusion, the bitcoin. Russia announced last week several measures to deal with the Cryptocurrencyfirst, by issuing a Crypto-ruble. If you read the fine print, the Russian government is moving in to tax and regulate it, at a rate of 13% on trades for profit, as well as Crypto-Rubles that suddenly appear out of nowhere.
It wont affect the Black Market as much, because 13% is going to be paid to turn a blind eye to the billions of rubles being stolen by the Russian Mafia and oligarchy alike. The gimmick here is for the government to take a chunk out of it: for now. The reason now is being used, is that eventually theyll shift gears, pass legislation, and eventually outlaw private trading in it that is not government-sanctioned or government-approved.
A government is only concerned with perpetuating itself and maintaining power. The most basic way it does this is by controlling the currency of the nation, regulating it, and taxing the citizens. In the United States, it has been reported by several sources that JP Morgan Chase is going to embrace Cryptocurrency. Europe is well on its way to establishing a Euro-BitCoin, and China has recently relaxed some measures regarding it.
This is the calm before the storm: the governments are studying it, and studying the masses to find the means to take control of it.
The gullible masses are playing right into their hands. The problem with Cryptocurrency is not just in the fact that it is backed by nothing (a fools errand before it has been started), but there is no privacy. None. If the governments control and monitor all electronic and computer media, then there is no such thing as privacy regarding electronic currency. This will be the death of cash, and thus the death of any privacy for citizens.
There will be no hiding from the taxing authorities. All the accounts will be monitored: taxed on any growth, and every single penny accounted for. The government will know what...
The last time I posted about checking on my bees (September
they were in a 5 frame poly nuc and
nursing a queen cell. Well, she failed to hatch. And, stupid me,

Looks like this is what I have to work with.
I believe it's a 3 phase 10 to 15 horse 460v only hollow drive shaft with submerged pump. It doesn't have a pecker head to rewire the phases for high or lower voltage.
Has anyone worked with pumps like this?
I work with a lot of 3 phase 480v horizontal direct driven centrifugal pumps, but nothing like this.
In a shocking development, a Texas city is demanding that their citizens sign a loyalty pledge to Israel in order to receive Hurricane Harvey relief funds.
Despite obvious Constitutional issues, the city of Dickinson has included, on its list of promises that a citizen must make in order to get funds for relief from the devastating hurricane, that one must certify that they do not boycott Israel and will not begin to boycott Israel during the terms of the agreement.
As The Houston Press noted, The small town of Dickinson is now making national news for what appears, before any context is provided, to be a totally random loyalty pledge to a foreign country that has absolutely nothing to do with Harvey recovery.
The city is apparently attempting to use a state law, signed by Republican Governor Greg Abbott, that prohibits arms of the Texas government from investing in or contracting with any company that boycotts Israel. Contractors are made to sign a similar verification as the one included by the city of Dickinson. The governor even went as far as to claim that boycotting Israel was anti-Texas after he signed the bill into law.
While one can agree or disagree on the merits of the state law in general, it cannot be denied that this law targeted organizations, not citizens seeking aid after their homes and property were destroyed by a hurricane.
The legal trouble, besides requiring citizens of the U.S. to pledge allegiance to a foreign country, doesnt end there. The Texas law specifically states that organizations are held to the pro-Israel standard, but nowhere does it state that individual citizens are. Nevertheless, Dickinson is requiring its citizenry to sign a no-boycott pledge if theyre interested in U.S. government grant money. In other words, if you dont pledge allegiance to a foreign nation you dont get government aid, wrote Aaron Kesel for Activist Post.
The contract specifically reads:
By executing this Agreement below, the Applicant verifies that the Applicant: (1) does not boycott Israel; and (2) will not boycott Israel during the term of this Agreement.
For their part, the ACLU has stepped in,...
Despite reported pleas from the intelligence community to delay their release, President Trump is set to declassify the tens of thousands of remaining CIA documents relating to the JFK assassination, according to a report by longtime Trump friend and adviser Roger Stone.
Stone, who is also an Infowars correspondent, spoke to the president Thursday about the issue as well as the fears of some within the CIA over the files pending release.
Yesterday I had the opportunity to make the case directly to the President of the United States, by phone, as to why I believe it is essential that he release the balance of the current redacted and classifeid JFK assassination documents, Stone detailed in an appearance on the Alex Jones Show.
He was all ears, Stone continued. The president believes in transparency, he believes in the publics right to know.
Stone stressed that Trump didnt specifically tell him that he had planned to release the files, but the way he took the information in and his past beliefs on the subject made it seem highly likely that he was leaning towards their release.
During the interview Stone also detailed the fact that the CIA doesnt want the files released and why this may be the case.
A very good White House source, not the president, told me that the Central Intelligence Agency, specifically the CIA director, have been lobbying the president furiously to not release these documents, he noted.
Why? I believe they show that Oswald was trained, nurtured, and put in place by the CIA, it sheds very bad light on the deep state the same characters trying to take down our president right now.
As it has gotten closer to their possible release, there havent just been ramblings in the intelligence community as mainstream authors of books that point to Oswald as the lone gunman have also publicly wrote about their worry that experts would not be able to dissect the documents before the public are able to read them.
An article in the establishment Politico Magazine by two mainstream JFK authors, Philip Shenon and Larry J. Sabato, quotes Stone about the CIAs worry while also adding worry of their own.
As it stands now, the document release this month will be a logistical nightmare, with the public suddenly flooded with a huge online library of documentstens of thousands in t...
A second shooter fires from an elevated position, presumably the billboard located outside Mr. Deli, at 10:04 p.m., before Paddock fires his first fully-automatic volley, video appears to show.
The purpose of this article is to open a real-time discussion and investigation into the possibility that a second shooter may have been firing from an elevated position across the strip and to the west of the Mandalay Bay Hotel.
At 3:08 into the video you can see what appears to be a single flash coming from the billboard behind the left Farris wheel post, by 3:12 the shot can be heard.
After doing an extensive analysis on the matter, I have determined that the shot likely came from the billboard located by Mr. Deli on Las Vegas Blvd. The signage overlooks the venue and is higher up than the roof of the Motel 8.
In the following image, the two Ferris wheel poles can be seen in the background to the left and beyond the poles the venue can be seen.
This would have been the shooters vantage of the venue from the billboard.
The actual distance from the billboard to where the videographer was standing at the time the potshot was taken is a total distance of 818 yards
The following image illustrates the shooters line of site....
In my last article A Tactical Analysis Of The Las Vegas Mass Shooting Incident, I outlined the precarious nature of the mainstream narrative and why the Vegas event in particular requires serious independent investigation into the possibility that Stephen Paddock did not plan or execute the event alone, or, he did not plan or execute the event at all, and someone else with far more tactical knowledge and shooting experience committed the murders outside the Mandalay Bay Hotel. Given that the FBI and Vegas sheriffs timeline seems to change every few days and that Mandalay surveillance footage is locked up tight, I think it is safe to say that someone more professional, and not muzzled by bureaucracy, needs be involved.
Setting aside the inconsistencies in the official narrative, questioning the motives behind this particular attack does not really bring us any closer to a practical solution. Of course, if you are one of those people that obsessively embraces the crisis actor theory, then you likely think that nothing much needs to be solved because no one actually died. I am not very interested in this impractical theory reminiscent of The Truman Show, nor the people that promote it. It reminds me of the 9/11 hologram plane theory remember, the theory designed to discredit the more legitimate 9/11 truth movement which included hundreds of scientists, architects and engineers with real arguments and evidence? Yeah, those establishment disinformation tactics did not go away; they are still being used today to undermine honest and rational investigations of other potential false flag events.
Ask fake event theorists for ANY concrete evidence that a single death was theatrical and that thousands of concertgoers and their families are part of the conspiracy, and these guys will demand that YOU show them the dead bodies and prove that the event wasnt faked. In other words, you must prove a negative, which is of course impossible.
Tell them you happen to know people with friends and family who were harmed in the event and theyll call you a liar or...

If President Trump or anyone even remotely close to his presidency, including his best friend from 2nd grade that he hadnt seen in 40 years, sought to meet with key Russian nuclear officials in Moscow just months before the federal government approved a very controversial deal handing Vladimir Putin 20% of U.S. uranium reserves, despite an ongoing investigation into Russian fraud, bribery, extortion and money laundering, it would be the only story played on a 24 x 7 loop on CNN and MSNBC.
Ironically, that is exactly what new emails dug up
by The Hill show that Bill Clinton did in
June 2010, just months before the Uranium One deal was approved by
a committee on which his wife, then Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton, sat. Oh, and did we mention that Bills Clinton Foundation
just happened to collect millions of dollars
bribes donations from Russian sources and
Uranium One shareholders shortly after his Moscow meetings?
As you will recall, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), approved the Uranium One transaction in October 2010. According to new emails revealed by The Hill, just months before that approval, Bill Clinton sought permission from the State Department, run by his wife at the time, to meet Arkady Dvorkovich, a top aide to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and one of the highest-ranking government officials to serve on Rosatoms board of supervisors, the company which was ultimately approved to purchase Uranium One.
As he prepared to collect a $500,000 payday in Moscow in 2010, Bill Clinton sought clearance from the State Department to meet with a key board director of the Russian nuclear energy firm Rosatom which at the time needed the Obama administrations approval for a controversial uranium deal, government records show.
Arkady Dvorkovich, a top aide to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and one of the highest-ranking government officials to serve on Rosatoms board of supervisors, was listed on a May 14, 2010, email as one of 15 Russians the former president wanted to meet during a late...

Getting Ready For War US Sends Hundreds Of Thousands Of Bombs To Guam As North Korea Threat Looms. The Air Force munitions stockpile in Guam recently received a ten percent boost, according to the U.S. military. A total of 816,393 munitions assets valued at over $95 million dollars were delivered to Andersen Air Force Base between Aug. 21 and Sept. 30, 36th Wing Public Affairs revealed in a statement Wednesday.
You might ask, Why in the world would I need a nuclear radiation detector? The answer is another question, Have you examined the world around you lately? We are living in dangerous times whereby the threat and potential reality of a nuclear detonation event (or worse) is escalating. Nuclear proliferation is increasingly abundant. Most noteworthy the current events surrounding North Korea. We also live in a world thats partially powered by nuclear power plants. Although presently safe, due to the fact that many or most of these reactors are beyond their planned lifespan, there is risk. Should the unthinkable happen

A meeting of the College Republicans at the University of California, Santa Cruz was taken over and subsequently shut down by hard-left students who literally screamed that the groups very existence was a threat to their safety.
The leftist group initially organized the effort to derail the free speech of Republicans on campus in a Facebook post that openly called for shutting down the groups right of assembly while also labeling mainline conservatives as white supremacists and fascists.
White Supremacist, fascist-sympathizing College Republicans are having a meeting at McHenry library, room 0332. Everybody be aware of this violent racist activity happening everyday on this campus! wrote a student. We need a movement of people on this campus that rejects the right of assembly, or right of free speech for white supremacists and fascists.
The group then went through with their social media threats, banging on the meetings door and eventually barging into the room to full on disrupt the peaceful meeting while screaming about fascists, racists, and white supremacists. Remember, this was a meeting of mainline conservatives.
Details published by Campus Reform include the fact that the leftist group refused to have any sort of dialogue with the College Republicans.
According to the UCSC College Republicans, their offers to discuss the concerns of the protesters were met with exclamations that dialogue is violence, after which the protesters called the clubs presence a threat to the library and demanded that the CR members vacate the space immediately.
The protesters even reportedly berated library staff members when they refused to shut down the pre-approved meeting. One staff member eventually asked the CR members to leave in order to end the disturbance, but meeting attendees chose to respond by sitting quietly and refusing to leave the area.
One student protester laughably ran out of the meeting hysterically screaming about nonexistent Nazis downstairs.
The commotion culminated in one of the student activists running out into the main library area screaming that there were Nazis downstairs, but while the gimmick drew several spectators, many of them expressed indignation at the actions of the protestors.
As a Democrat, I am embarrassed that some people on the left act this way, remarked Phil Leonard Vo...
A comprehensive investigation with pictures from inside the Mandalay Bay after the Las Vegas shooting leads to investigator being banned by the hotel itself.
An independent investigator working on the Las Vegas shooting case was staying at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino when he was abruptly and formally trespassed from all MGM Resorts International Properties, all within 24 hours of his check-in.
The investigator, who wishes to remain anonymous, goes by @Nick_Falco on Twitter and has posted a series of tweets confirming his claims that he was indeed banned from the property for life by MGM management around 7:30 p.m. Saturday evening.
1. I questioned the #LasVegas shooting narrative.
I went to Mandalay Bay to check for myself
After 24 hours I was banned for life from MGM pic.twitter.com/AEdgzRGfG8
Nick (@Nick_Falco) October 15, 2017
Falco told Intellihub exclusively that he received a phone call from the front desk of Mandalay Bay shortly before 7:30 p.m. in which a female operator instructed him to answer his hotel room door where four men (two armed guards, a security guy, and an FBI agent) simultaneously met him. Falco was then told to pack up his belongings before the FBI agent conducted a subsequent inspection of his room.
Soon after the independent investigator says that he was escorted over to the main entrance of the Mandalay Bay where a security guard stood him in front of a camera and verbally read him the trespass.
ISIS is currently plotting a new 9/11 style attack that would once again see American planes brought down in order to cause maximum devastation warned acting Homeland Security Chief Elaine Duke.
Speaking during a stop at the US embassy in London, Duke claimed that recent intelligence has shown that the terror group wants a big explosion like that of 9/11 rather than the horrific but geopolitically minor attacks seen in recent years.
The terrorist organizations, be it ISIS or others, want to have the big explosion like they did on 9/11 . They want to take down aircraft, the intelligence is clear on that, Duke said before going on to also warn that ISIS has in no means abandoned smaller scale attacks.
However, in the interim they need to keep their finances flowing and they need to keep their visibility high and they need to keep their members engaged, so they are using small plots and they are happy to have small plots.
Duke went on to add that the increase in smaller scale terror such as van or knife attacks doesnt mean the group has given up on aviation.
Creating terror is their goal and so a van attack, a bladed weapon attack, causes terror and continues to disrupt the world but does not mean theyve given up on a major aviation plot.
According to the UKs Mirror, Duke went on to say:
Mrs Duke went on to add that terrorists could use a laptop to blow up an aircraft and is just one of many threats facing airlines all over the world.
She added that it was important to target terrorists in their homes, keep them moving and fearful of attack, therefore allowing them less time to sit and work on bigger plots.
She said: We have worked on some strong measures that we cant talk about. We are trying to play the away game and that is working against them in their terrorist safe havens and homes.
We do have some terrorist groups on the move, you just saw the take-over of Raqqa and so if we can keep them declining and moving they have less time to sit and prepare.
In the past most in the alternative media would question whether information coming form the homeland security chief should be trusted so despite the fact that Donald Trump is obviously president there always runs the risk that...
Japans space agency said it has discovered an enormous cave beneath the lunar surface that could be turned into an exploration base for astronauts. It appears to be the perfect spot for humans to colonize the moon.
The discovery, made by Japans Selenological and Engineering Explorer (Selene) probe, comes as several countries compete to follow the United States in sending manned missions to the moon. Using a radar sounder system that can examine underground structures, the orbiter initially found an opening 50 meters wide and 50 meters deep, prompting speculation that there could be a larger hollow. Scientists at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (Jaxa) confirmed the presence of the cave after examining the hole using radio waves.
According to The Guardian, the chasm appears to be structurally sound and its rocks may contain ice or water deposits that could be turned into fuel, according to data sent back by the orbiter, nicknamed Kaguya after the moon princess in a Japanese fairytale. Jaxa believes that the cave, located from a few dozen meters to 200 meters beneath an area of volcanic domes known as the Marius Hills on the moons near side, is a lava tube created during volcanic activity about 3.5 billion years ago.
The agency said the chamber could be used as a base for astronauts and their equipment because it would protect them from extreme temperatures. Lunar temperatures range from an average of 107 Celcius during the day to -153 Celcius at night, and radiation from the suns ultraviolet rays it extremely dangerous.
Weve known about these locations that were thought to be lava tubes but their existence has not been confirmed until now, said Junichi Haruyama, a senior researcher at Jaxa....
A Sevier County Sheriffs Office deputy opened fire without warning in a mobile home park. He then suffered an apparent panic attack and four minutes later was forcibly disarmed by a paramedic, body camera footage shows.
Deputy Justin Johnson and paramedic Blake Gregg were holding down an unarmed suspect, Tina Carrie Jo Cody, when the incident occurred. The video begins with Johnson asking Cody to walk toward him with her hands up. He already seems angry and slightly agitated.
Johnson was called to the mobile home park at 794 Sharp Road by the paramedics. A morbidly obese female had fallen inside one of the homes and was complaining about landlord Robin Sutton, Codys mother, and Cody, Johnson wrote in his report.
Once Cody is on the ground after a short chase, an obviously adrenalized Johnson suddenly turned toward the trailer park and fired four shots. He paused and fired three more rounds, the video obtained by the USA TODAY NETWORK Tennessee showed. Johnson then ran away from Cody and Gregg toward Sharp Road.
Shots fired, he told dispatchers. We need help. Four minutes later, Johnson was kneeling over Cody, who had remained on the ground during the shooting, with his gun still in his hand when the video showed he began hyperventilating and running backward away from the mobile homes and Cody.
Paramedic Michael OConnor ran toward Johnson.
Pull it together, OConnor told Johnson. Look at me.
The sheriffs deputy begins to panic around the 5:25 mark in the video. Johnson continued to hyperventilate while pointing his gun toward Cody, Gregg and the mobile homes. He appears to be suffering from a breakdown. Give me your gun, OConnor repeatedly said. A still hyperventilating Johnson continued to grip the gun. OConnor eventually wrested it from his hand. Let go of it, OConnor said. Johnson continued to hyperventilate.
The paramedic does succeed in disarming Johnson. About one minute and 30 seconds after Johnson began hyperventilating, his breathing slowed. Im OK, he said. Im OK.
OConnor handed Johnson his gun back. He had hyper...
The newest edition of the book Fahrenheit 451 is going to be out soon, and ironically, it must be heated up to be read.
For those who havent read the book Fahrenheit 451, its coming highly recommended. It tells the story of a dystopian society in which books are outlawed and burned by firemen to prevent citizens from reading them. It follows one firemans journey of following orders and questioning authority. Ray Bradburys iconic book was originally published in 1953 and will leave a permanent reminder tucked away in the mind as to why free speech should never, under any circumstances, be culled. Simon and Schusters website says this is what the book is about:
Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden.
Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television family. But then he meets an eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, who introduces him to a past where people didnt live in fear and to a present where one sees the world through the ideas in books instead of the mindless chatter of television.
When Mildred attempts suicide and Clarisse suddenly disappears, Montag begins to question everything he has ever known. He starts hiding books in his home, and when his pilfering is discovered, the fireman has to run for his life.
Even more amazing, the new special edition of the book coming out soon, and it must be heated up in order to be read. Its a truly astonishing feat when thinking about it. The title Fahrenheit 451 actually refers to the temperature at which paper will catch on fire and burn, and if you didnt know that before, its likely seared into your mind now.

The vanishing of insects around the globe is causing scientists to issue and ecological armageddon warning. The abundance of insects has plunged by three quarters and scientists feel now is the time to sound the alarm.
Three-quarters of flying insects in nature reserves across Germany have vanished in 25 years, with serious implications for all life on Earth, scientists say. According to The Guardian, insects are an integral part of life on Earth as both pollinators and prey for other wildlife. It was known that some species, such as butterflies, were declining. But the newly revealed scale of the losses to all insects has prompted warnings that the world is on course for ecological Armageddon, with profound impacts on human society.
The fact that the number of flying insects is decreasing at such a high rate in such a large area is an alarming discovery, said Hans de Kroon, at Radboud University in the Netherlands and who led the new research which discovered the plummeting insect population. The research, published in the journal Plos One, is based on the work of dozens of amateur entomologists across Germany who began using strictly standardized ways of collecting insects in 1989.
Special tents called malaise traps were used to capture more than 1,500 samples of all flying insects at 63 different nature reserves. When the total weight of the insects in each sample was measured a startling decline was revealed. The annual average fell by 76% over the 27 year period, but the fall was even higher (82%) in the summer when insect numbers reach their peak....

How to get a Free Ride off the top of the mountain....
While the mainstream media has largely ignored it, the scandal surrounding Russian efforts to acquire 20% of Americas uranium reserves, a deal which was ultimately approved by the Obama administration, and more specifically the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) which included Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder, is becoming more problematic for Democrats by the hour.
As The Hill pointed out earlier this morning, the latest development in this sordid tale revolves around a man that the FBI used as an informant back in 2009 and beyond to build a case against a Russian perpetrator who ultimately admitted to bribery, extortion and money laundering. The informant, who is so far only known as Confidential Source 1, says that when he attempted to come forward last year with information that linked the Clinton Foundation directly to the scandal he was promptly silenced by the FBI and the Obama administration.
Working as a confidential witness, the businessman made kickback payments to the Russians with the approval of his FBI handlers and gathered other evidence, the records show.
Sources told The Hill the informants work was crucial to the governments ability to crack a multimillion dollar racketeering scheme by Russian nuclear officials on U.S. soil that involved bribery, kickbacks, money laundering and extortion. In the end, the main Russian executive sent to the U.S. to expand Russian President Vladimir Putins nuclear business, an executive of an American trucking firm and a Russian financier from New Jersey pled guilty to various crimes in a case that started in 2009 and ended in late 2015.
Toensing added her client has had contact from multiple congressional committees seeking information about what he witnessed inside the Russian nuclear industry and has been unable to provide that information because of the NDA.
He cant disclose anything that he came upon in the course of his work, she said.
The information the client possesses includes specific allegations that Russian executive...
Herbs are one of the first plants we put in our garden. There is nothing like fresh culinary herbs to intensify the flavors of food. As well, herbs are hardy garden plants that dont have to be watered as much as vegetables and can serve more than one purpose by being used as natural medicine.
For instance, did you know that a sage leaf can be used instead of a band-aid because it has natural healing qualities? Some of these popular culinary herbs are oregano, thyme and sage and can grow year-round in many parts of the country.
To enjoy these herbs year round, many choose to dehydrate them when they are at the peak in freshness and combine them to make their own spices and even homemade tea blends. Can you imagine how much money you could save at the grocery store by implementing this into your pantry?
Dehydrating herbs and other leafy greens is one of the easiest items to dry for long-term use. All you really need is a constant stream of air. You dont necessary have to own a food dehydrator because herbs can dry naturally from the air, but it does help with even drying.
Here are some steps to get started:
Here are some great spice mixes to start adding to your pantry!

How much is your view of the world shaped by what you see on television? On average, Americans spend more than 150 hours watching television every month, and it is called programming for a reason. If you allow anyone to pour ideas and information into your mind for five hours a day, it is going to change how you look at reality. Everyone has an agenda, and every single news program, television show and movie is trying to alter your views. Sadly, our society has become absolutely addicted to media, and the mainstream media is completely dominated by the elite. In fact, about 90 percent of the programming that comes through your television is controlled by just 6 gigantic media corporations. Most of us are willingly plugging ourselves into this propaganda matrix that is completely dominated by the elite for several hours each day, and that gives them an enormous amount of power over the rest of us.
In Part I and Part II of this series, I discussed how the elite use money as a tool to dominate the planet. Today, we are going to talk about how they use information. If you control what people think, then you control a society. And through their vast media empires, the elite are able to shape how we all think to a frightening degree.
Just think about it. What do we talk about with our family, our friends and our co-workers? To a large extent, those conversations are about movies, television shows, something that we just saw on the news or a sporting event that just took place. The reason why we talk about certain things is because the mainstream media gives...
Making sure that the flock is healthy is vital in chicken and duck keeping. Besides, hatching and harvesting the food you put on the table is the best way to know what your family is really being served on their dinner plates.
Keeping your flock of chickens and ducks healthy is essential for them to continue laying quality eggs and eating bugs to prevent these pests from destroying the garden. Chickens and ducks are vulnerable to common poultry health issues like Coccidiosis, a deadly parasitic disease that is known as the number one killer of chicks and ducklings. While your birds dont really need costly hormone injections and antibiotics, I suggest you give these spices a try to aid you in chicken and duck keeping.
Black pepper contains a lot of vitamins and nutrients. It also functions as an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant. In addition, it helps flush toxins and absorb nutrients from its food sources. Chickens are prone to respiratory problems. Adding a few pinches of black pepper to their feed or in their water can help prevent respiratory problems and ease coughing.
Now that I am back state side and see regular TV instead of AFN
I see why there is a sudden resurgence in interest in buying gold
If they are advertising it they are only encouraging you to buy high so the dealers will make a killing off the hoards of gold and silver they bought while it was cheap.
If they are advertising it then it is a sellers market meaning its not the time to buy.
You should be selling it like I am to all the suckers who obey their television.
