An older gentleman was at the doctor for his annual physical. The doctor had ordered a blood panel and some other routine tests but was pleased to tell the old timer that he was in great shape. As he was wrapping things up he asked if the gentleman had any other concerns.

Right Explodes In Anger Over Trumps New Immigration Push SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge.com

trump-not-happy

Trumps base woke up to a fairly surprising flip-flop this morning from the White House on DACA and the infamous, beautiful border wall which was discussed repeatedly on the campaign trail throughout 2016. It all started when Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after their White House dinner with the President last night:

We had a very productive meeting at the White House with the President. The discussion focused on DACA. We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, thats acceptable to both sides.

That statement was followed up by a tweet storm (we covered it here) from the President this morning which seemingly revealed his complete support for DACA and referred to The Wall as a renovation of old and existing fences and walls rather than the physically imposing yet aesthetically pleasing structure that he repeatedly promised his supporters.

The apparent flip flop by the President resulted in an immediate backlash from some of his most vocal supporters with Ann Coulter wondering aloud over twitter, at this point, who DOESNT want Trump impeached?

Apples New FaceID Could Be A Powerful Mass Spying Tool SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

mass-survey

On Tuesday, Apple revealed their newest phone. The new line was anticipated by Apple users and is another cult favorite.  But many are rightly skeptical of the FaceID feature.

FaceID, is a tool that would use facial recognition to identify individuals and unlock their phones for use. Unsurprisingly, this has generated some major anxiety about mass spying and privacy concerns. Retailers already have a desire for facial recognition technology. They want to monitor consumers, and without legally binding terms and Apple could use FaceID to track consumer patterns at its stores or develop and sell data to others.

That seems minor on the surface, but the ramifications could be enormous. Its also highly possible that police would be able to more easily unlock phones without consent by simply holding an individuals phone up to his or her face, violating the rights of the person to privacy.

But FaceID should create fear about another form of government surveillance too. And this one is a rights violation of every person on earth: mass scans to identify individuals based on face profiles. Law enforcement is rapidly increasing their use of facial recognition; one in two American adults are already enrolled in a law enforcement facial recognition network, and at least one in four police departments has the capability to run face recognition searches. This could make Apple the target for a new mass surveillance order.

While Facebook has a powerful facial recognition system, it doesnt maintain the operating systems that control the cameras on phones, tablets, and laptops that stare at us every day. Apples new system completely changes that. For the first time, a company will have a facial recognition system with millions of profiles, and the hardware to scan and identify faces throughout the world.

According to Wired, this is a system already ripe for government abuse. The government coul...

San Diego Begins Bleaching Streets To Contain Outbreak Of Hepatitis A SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

streetbleaching

A Hepatitis A outbreak has killed 16 people in the southern California city of San Diego. In order to combat the disease, the city has literally begun spraying the streets with bleach.

An article by NPR said that the Hepatitis A was first identified in the area in early March, according to the county, and declared a public health emergency earlier this month. Nearly 400 people have been infected with the disease.

The majority of those sickened by this viral infection outbreak have been homeless people. A letter from San Diego County health officials stated that hepatitis A is being spread through contact with a fecally contaminated environment as well as person-to-person transmission. A big part of the problem is an apparent lack of public restrooms in areas where the homeless population congregates.

Hepatitis A is a highly contagious viral infection, which can prove fatal. According to the Centers for Disease Control, the virus attacks the liver. Adequate personal hygiene and sanitation can help prevent the spread of the virus.

On August 31, the county issued a directive which has forced the city to wash the streets and expand public restroom access, adding that failure to immediately follow this directive will endanger public health and safety. Last Friday, the city agreed to the orders and began bleaching the streets on Monday.

According to NPR, the process is lengthy and must be repeated every two weeks to combat the outbreak.

The procedure, as prescribed by the county, involves first spraying down hazardous items such as human waste or needles, waiting 10 minutes, removing the contaminated items, then spraying the area again with bleach. After that, it calls for pressure-washing the area with water.

It is set to be repeated every two weeks, with weekly spot maintenance, according to county guidelines. NPR

Deep State Drugging Trump Ahead of Coup, Sources Say SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

The following article was originally published by Kit Daniels at Infowars.com

trump

Deep state operatives are putting sedatives in President Trumps food and drink to make him more pliable and disoriented, according to multiple White House sources.

Insiders close to Trump noticed his slurred speech and sleepiness over the past several months, which are strikingly similar to changes observed in former Presidents John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan, both of whom were sedated.

Prior to the presidency, Trump was known for his energetic 18+ hour days in the high-stress world of real estate development and his reportedly sudden shifts in behavior mesh perfectly too perfectly with the establishment medias prediction that the president would soon suffer cognitive issues.

The president does not drink, the president most certainly does not do drugs. The president is a sharp as a tack, according to Trump insider Roger Stone, who talked to his own sources in addition to the sources who spoke to Infowars. I have now heard, not from one but two different sources, that he seemed disoriented and was slurring his speech in conversations.

To me this is a tip-off that he may be medicated. Is [Chief of Staff] Gen. Kelly above this? No.

Consequently, Kelly pressured Trumps decades-long bodyguard, Keith Schiller, to resign from the White House, a troubling development given Schillers personal dedication to the presidents well-being.

With a loyalist like Schiller no longer standing next to the president, incapacitating him would be relatively easy, Stone pointed out.

For the past several months, the mainstream media has been pushing a narrative that Trump should face impeachment over mental instability, a media angle that was discussed in private meetings amongst anti-Trump reporters.

Similarly, the American Psychoanalytic Association is trying to do away with the long-standing Goldwater rule which stops psychologists from diagnosing public figures they have not examined in person, as Infowars reported on July 26.

The Many Disturbing Sex Scandals Of The Democratic Party SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

Right now, a major cover-up is going on in the media and among leftists all over the country. Many Democrats are involved in separate and equally disturbing sex scandals, but they are all being swept under the rug.

According to the Daily Wire, the Democratic Mayor of Seattle, Ed Murray, resigned Tuesday after more allegations of child sexual abuse surfaced. Murrays resignation, which was effective 5 p.m. on Wednesday, comes after the fifth allegation of child sexual abuse surfaced on Tuesday. This time, the accusations came from a family member. But Murray isnt the only Democrat neck deep in scandals of this magnitude, in what is becoming a disturbing pattern of Democrats politicians involved in crimes and allegations of child sexual abuse. These scandals are horrifying and largely ignored by the mainstream media.

Several major Democrats are facing charges or received convictions regarding sexual crimes related to children over the past year. Perhaps the most well-known example is that of Anthony Weiner, soon to be ex-husband to Hillary Clintons top aide Huma Abedin. Weiner, the disgusting and disgraced Democrat has a long history of sexual misconduct which most recently landed him in legal trouble when he became involved in an online sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl. Weiner pleaded guilty to transferring obscene material to a minor and faces up to ten years in prison. He also must now register as a sex offender.

The Daily Wire also compiled a list of Democrats that the website backpage.com has donated to. The website is allegedly directly linked to child prostitution and trafficking and the co-owners gave a lot of money to Democrats recently, including donations to:

  • David Garcia  a Democratic candidate for governor in Arizona
  • A political action committee...

North Korea Threatens To Sink Japan With A Nuke SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

nuke-war2

North Korea has not only threatened to turn the United States into ashes and darkness, but theyve also threatened neighboring Japan. They have said that they would like to sink Japan with a nuke for the newly imposed United Nations sanctions on the regime.

Japan is no longer needed to exist near us, the state-run Korean Central News Agency said on Thursday, citing a statement by the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee. The four islands of the archipelago should be sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb of Juche, it said, a reference to the regimes ideology of self-reliance. Juche is the Norths ruling ideology that mixes Marxism and an extreme form of forced nationalism preached by state founder Kim Il-sung, the grandfather of the current leader, Kim Jong-un.

Japans Chief Cabinet Secretary, Yoshihide Suga, called the comments, extremely provocative. Suga continued saying, If North Korea stays the course that it is on, it will increasingly become isolated from the world. Through implementing the new United Nations Security Council resolution and related agreements, the international community as a whole needs to maximize pressure on North Korea so that it will change its policy, Suga told reporters on Thursday in Tokyo.

The most recent United Nations sanctions on North Korea came shortly after the regime tested their sixth and most powerful nuclear weapon earlier this month. A telling blow should be dealt to them who have not yet come to senses after the launch of our ICBM over the Japanese archipelago, a spokesman for the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee said in a previous statement. The committee is an affiliate of Kim Jong-uns...

Before And After Satellite Images Of Irmas Destruction In Caribbean SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

A satellite image of Virgin Gorda before Hurricane Irma hit (left) and after (right)

These before and after images, taken by the Landsat 8 satellite, show plainly and clearly how destructive Hurricane Irma was to the Caribbean islands in its path. The satellite had been busy snapping photos as a way to document the damage.

NASA has released a series of satellite imagery showing islands in the Caribbean before and after the major storm. The photos were taken on August 25 and September 10, 2017, respectively.

The image below is of the island Barbuda both before and after the storm. Locals and authorities in the Caribbean have said that this storm was so strong, it wiped Barbuda off the map. 

barbuda

Around 90% of Barbudas buildings are rubble, and a majority of the island is still underwater, making it uninhabitable for the 1800 residents who before Irma ripped through, called the island home. It didnt fare as well as Antiqua, which is still green, meaning its tropical vegetation is still mostly intact.

Aside from the slightly patchy cloud coverage in the post-hurricane images, the main thing you will notice is the different coloring of the land. In the images from late-August, the islands are a lush vibrant green, while the ones after the hurricane are a duller brown. This is because the hurricanes violent 185 miles per hour (298 kilometer per hour) winds literally stripped the land of much of its tropical vegetation. Additionally, salt spray spat up by the storm can damage the leaves still on the trees. IFLScience

Last Minute Preparedness: How To Prep For Sheltering in Place Ready Nutrition

ReadyNutrition Readers, this article is not a substitute for common sense, nor is it a betting slip of things to do to beat the odds.  With Hurricane Harvey dealing our beloved states of Texas and Louisiana a crippling blow and with Hurricane Irma devastating the state of Florida, one thing is for sure the nation needs to focus on preparednessin all departments and for all disasters.  Were going to run with this ball to give a checklist of things to do if there is a need to stay at home.

Sometimes its not just a matter of being either hard-headed, or rooted within the home and sentimentalities.  Sometimes there are things that force a family to stay in place and try to face what is coming, regardless of what the rest of the people in the area are doing.  Examples of this would be when a family member cannot be transported or moved, or when the family is unable to do it logistically for fear of losing everything or the great hardships imposed by fleeing.

Undoubtedly the army of skeptics is ready to call for fire on my position.  Before Splash out, sounds on the radio, however, the last sentence is the reality.  It happened that way in New Orleans with Katrina.  Whatever the situation or the reasons, it is not the focus of this piece to argue with Ned the Naysayer, but to provide something to help those who need it.  First advice:

If you can leave the area before the disaster strikes, then do so, and seek shelter elsewhere.

Now to the business at hand.  The more able-bodied people you have in the family to help you, the quicker you can expedite these basic tasks.  Review my articles on Katrina, and much of this ties into what my family and I did there.  Were going to focus on stuff for a hurricane primarily, and then tailor-make it into advice to suit other disasters as well.

Solar Kill Shots and CMEs: How Space Weather Can Affects Your Preps Survival Life

https://survivallife.com/drone-defense-gnat-warfare/

The planets within our solar system have a strange effect on Earth. This effect has been studied through astrology for thousands of years. However, recently research has shed light that the planets, along with our Sun, have concrete physical effects on Earth as well. Lets call this phenomena space weather, shall we? Understanding space weather can help with understanding how to survive and prepare on Earth.

Space Weather | How It Affects Earth

One example of space weather is the Moons magnetic effect. This magnetism coincides with Earths ocean tides. In addition, the Suns behavior has been shown to correlate with earthquakes. Solar winds released from Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) and Coronal Holes trigger these natural disasters.

The Sun also has an electromagnetic effect on Earth. As CMEs released from the Suns surface increase in speed, the particles trapped in the solar winds hit Earths magnetosphere. This causes the Aurora Borealis, which can be seen in the South. In our daily life, these solar winds impact Earths electrical grid as well. This effect is continuously monitored. You can check the relationship between the electrical grid and solar winds via the Kp Index.

With enough speed, a CME released from the Sun could wipe out our entire electrical grid. The most recent recorded event occurred in 1859. Known as the Carrington Event, the sun released such a powerful CME, also known as a Solar Kill Shot, which caused telegraphs to be disrupted. Some even burst into flames. Although not much of society was reliant on the electrical grid at that time, a Solar Kills Shot today would virtually set humanity back to the stone age.

The Solar Kill Shot

A Solar Kill Shot must be understood and accounted for in your family emergency preparedness plan. Similar to an EMP (electromagnetic pulse), a Solar Kill Shot would render every electrical unit useless. This includes cell phones, radios, computers, most vehicles, medical equipment, and of course the grid which powers your homes lights, sewage, and heat.

A recovery from a Solar Kill Shot has been estimated to take upwards of $2 trillion to repair. In addition, recovery from such an event could take up to 10 years. With this in mind, long ter...

Major Disinformation Trend In 2017: Fascists Were The Good Guys? SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

The following article was originally published by Brandon Smith of Alt-Market.com

fascists

Years ago in 2012, I published a thorough examination of disinformation tactics used by globalist institutions as well as government and political outfits to manipulate the public and undermine legitimate analysts working to expose particular truths of our social and economic conditions. If you have not read this article, titled Disinformation: How It Works, I highly recommend you do so now. It will act as a solid foundation for what I am about to discuss in this article. Without a basic understanding of how lies are utilized, you will be in no position to grasp the complexities of disinformation trends being implemented today.

Much of what I am about to discuss will probably not become apparent for much of the mainstream and portions of the liberty movement for many years to come. Sadly, the biggest lies are often the hardest to see until time and distance are achieved.

If you want to be able to predict geopolitical and economic trends with any accuracy, you must first accept a couple of hard realities. First and foremost, the majority of cultural shifts and fiscal developments within our system are a product of social engineering by an organized collective of power elites. Second, you must understand that this collective is driven by the ideology of globalism the pursuit of total centralization of financial and political control into the hands of a select few deemed as superior concertmasters or maestros. As globalist insider, CFR member and mentor to Bill Clinton, Carroll Quigley, openly admitted in his book Tragedy And Hope:

The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was t...

Do 40,000 Lightning Strikes Over Southern Cali Point To A Mega Quake On The Horizon? SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

calightningstorm

A volatile storm has ignited a slew of 40,000 lightning strike in southwestern California. The strikes have hit Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and Ventura counties all between September 10-11.

The electric storm was most active on Sunday with an amazing 5,000 lightning bolts in the area over a three-hour period. NWS Los Angeles took to Twitter to report the tremendous display. The intense storm brought plenty of lightning to the Golden states southern region, but almost no rain.  The greatest rain total of .44 inches at Sudden Peak on Sunday. By Monday morning, heavy showers, thunderstorms, and 35-mph winds were reported in eastern Los Angeles County.

But now conspiracy is swirling around this fascinating and unique electric storm.  Strange lights and electrons acting oddly seem to have been appearing either before or during major earthquakes like the recent 8.2 magnitude quake in Mexico. Could these lightning strikes be a sign that Californias mega quake is on the horizon?

Thousands Of People Around The World Are Willingly Implanting The Mark Of The Beast In Their Bodies SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

markofthebeast

Commuters in Sweden believe that they are at the forefront of the future.  They are willingly getting microchips implanted into their hands so that their commute is easier, but many say that what they are really implanting is the mark of the beast.

The progressive thinking commuters have futuristic microchip implants embedded into their hands to pay for their journey.  In June, SJ Rail, the Swedish train operator, announced that around 100 people were using microchips to pay for their journey. But in a new interview with the BBC, it was revealed that an estimated 3,000 people now use the service. The train conductor can then simply read the chip with a smartphone to confirm the passenger has paid for their journey.

But the technology raises security and privacy issues, as the data generated could be used to track people. It also offers a spiritual dilemma for those who believe that these implants could be the Bibles mark of the beast. According to Bible Hub, the passage in the Bible that talks about the mark of the beast is Revelation 13:17.

16And the second beast required all people small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17so that noone could buy or sell unless he had the mark  thename of the beast or the number of its name. 18Here is a call for wisdom: Let the one who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and that number is six hundred sixty-six.

California Woman Busted With Illegal Gun: A Stock-less 10/22 SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

ruger-10-22

California woman Leticia Sept was taken into custody after officers on patrol encountered her near a recreational vehicle that was parked illegally and found her with the firearm.  The illegal gun was a stockless Ruger 10/22, and thanks to gun laws, shes in a lot of trouble with the government.

Police in Fresno arrested the woman Monday after they found her in possession of a .22LR rifle that came up a little short on their tape measure. Her trouble wasnt with the fact the rifle had no stock, although it didnt slip past the more gun savvy out there. California law requires rifles to be at least 26 inches long, and this particular rifle was only 24 inches in length. But the federal government has regulations on SBRs too.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives considers a weapon made from a rifle if such weapon as modified has an overall length of less than 26 inches or a barrel or barrels of less than 16 inches in length, to be regulated under the NFA.

According to Guns.com, an inmate search at the facility shows Sept is still in custody as of Tuesday morning. Her bail set at $12,000. Officers also recovered composite knuckles and an illegal narcotic from Sept, and she was booked into the Fresno County Jail on charges of misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia and two weapons violations a misdemeanor for the knuckles and a felony charge on the SBR.

So much for shall not be infringed.  Although it stands to reason that the cops were looking into the possession of the narcotics, the illegal weapon just compounded the issue with the state.

Florida Farmers Say Irmas Damage Is The Worst Theyve Ever Seen SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

 citruscrops

Almost half of Floridas citrus crops were destroyed during the hurricane and when Florida farmers survey the damage caused by Hurricane Irma, and most are saying its the worst destruction to their farms that theyve ever seen.

When the worst of Irmas fury had passed, Gene McAvoy hit the road to inspect the citrus groves and vegetable fields in Florida. McAvoy is a specialist on vegetable farming at the University of Floridas extension office in the town of LaBelle. LaBelle is located in the middle of one of the countrys biggest concentrations of vegetable and citrus farms.

According to NPR, the storm made a direct hit to those fields. The eyewall came right over our main production area, McAvoy says. Irma had destroyed almost half of the citrus crops in the central Florida area, meaning prices are likely going to go up sharply.

Many of the destroyed groves of oranges and grapefruit were actually approaching harvest too.  But after Irma blew through, it left 50 or 60 percent of the fruit lying in water [or] on the ground, says McAvoy. Many trees were standing in water, a mortal danger if their roots stay submerged for longer than three or four days. About a quarter of the countrys sugar production comes from fields of sugar cane near Lake Okeechobee, just east of LaBelle. Harvest season for the sugar cane crop is only a few weeks away, but Irma knocked much of the cane down, making it more difficult to harvest. We wont know the exact extent of the loss until its harvested, McAvoy says.

Fortunately for the vegetable farms, most had yet to be planted, so the destruction was minimal.  But that wont help the destroyed citrus produce. For exampl...

Another whizbang chainsaw sharpener. Survival Monkey Forums

OK....I'll admit, I'm a sucker for chainsaw sharpeners. Over the years, I've bought a Granberg File/guide attachment, went back to a plain file, then a 12v Granberg chain grinder (like a Dremel tool), then went back to a file, then a bench mounted Harbor Freight grinder (really didn't like that one) , and back to a hand file.....the only thing I've improved a hand file with is a file guide like this Oregon one.....like the wood handle, and angle marks....keeps you hand filing pretty good....

Prepping For A Nuclear War: 10 Foods To Grow To Help Reduce Radiation Effects SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

vegetables

With the threat from North Korea of a potential and possibly imminent nuclear war on the horizon, many preppers have taken to gathering items which protect them from the effects of radiation.  Food can do that as well, and here are ten things you can grow to reduce that damages done by radiation.

Its terrifying to think about, but there may come a day when the United States will be struck by one or more nuclear weapons.  Because of this, Natural News compiled a list of the ten best foods to grow in case this horrific scenario becomes a macabre reality.

  1. Potatoes

    In the event of a nuclear attack, one of the first organs that will be affected by the nuclear fallout and radiation is the thyroid gland. The reason the thyroid is affected first is primarily because radioactive iodine is absorbed by the gland extremely quickly. Unbeknownst to most people, though, potato skins contain high amounts of iodine, which can be used by the body to shield the cells from radioactive material, like nuclear fallout. Potatoes are also one of the easiest and heartiest crops to grow, making them a no-brainer for anyone who is serious about prepping for a nuclear attack.

  2. Strawberries

    Like potatoes, strawberries are extremely easy to grow. All you really need is some soil, some water and a spot on the windowsill, and in no time at all, you will be able to enjoy a plethora of fresh, juicy berries. Strawberries also contain several important nutrients and are a good source of iodine. Its also been thought that eating strawberries can help prevent breast cancer.

Hacking The Power Grid: They Can Induce Blackouts On American Soil AT WILL SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

power-grid4

The American power grid has been hacked.  It also appears that these hackers may take down the entire grid at will and induce blackouts when and where they choose.

For an unknown reason, however, the hackers restrained themselves from taking down the power like they did in Ukraine recently.  They simply hacked their way into the system, although speculation is that they just wanted to look aroundfor now.

You could have seen this one coming a mile away. The narrative is taking shape, folks. The boogie men are being put into place and when the time is right, The Powers That Shouldnt Be, will send the signal to their henchmen to set off the next crisis, stoking fear in everyones hearts. Out of chaos, order! The Daily Sheeple

A report by internet security experts, Symantec, says that a hacking group called Dragonfly 2.0 has gained access to 20 power company networks.

The targets were in the United States, Turkey, and Switzerland. According to Symantec, the hackers did gain access to the interface they would need to control the power equipment, with which they could cause a widespread blackout.

According to one expert, they were just in there looking around. John Hultquist, a researcher for FireEye security, said of another such intrusion, In our experience groups that have solely targeted energy like this have been carrying out reconnaissance for attack. Organic Prepper
