Bringing Production and Work Back Into The Urban and Rural Home Backdoor Survival » Preparedness » Bringing Production and Work Back Into The Urban and Rural Home Samantha Biggers | Nov 20, 2019   We live in a world where we outsource many things that used to be done in the home. After all, if people are working jobs away from home and commuting great distances, who has the time, let alone the skills and the equipment to do a lot of those things. This article is going to focus on how to “insource”. This is my word for taking care of some things at home and saving some money rather than paying others high rates to do it for you. […]

enemy of the state

I am in good company. Perhaps the greatest ever is Murray Rothbard (March 2, 1926 – January 7, 1995). I use the present tense because he not only was an economic, cultural and political genius, he also was a prolific author of books that clearly explained the real world in contrast to the ones the supreme charlatans would have us believe in. His lessons live on through his writings and his students. I am a relatively inconsequential disciple of his, with America’s Great Depression and What Has Government Done to Our Money? among the more significant books in my reference library. Those two, by the way, along with Albert Jay Nock’s Our Enemy, The State and F. A. Hayek’s The […]

While we sleep

Our enemies do not. Three news stories jumped in my face. I want you to notice in this first one that GooGoo calls this feature “a bug“. HA! I have some ocean-front Montana property to sell to anyone believing that one.  Notice further in the article that Apple, I-Phone, Facebook and WhatsApp were caught with similar “bugs“.  Microsoft Windows has long been understood to be riddled with spyware. Reasonably safe to assume most of the Big Tech Giants are guilty.  You buy the product, or you are the product. If they can get you to do both it is win-win for them. . Android camera bug let hackers spy on users even if phone is LOCKED & screen is […]

the war on ICE

If it seems coordinated, it probably is. Those controlling the media monopoly are the same perverted globalists controlling a huge swath of the world’s politicians and apparatchiks. What we have in the attached article are success stories of swamp draining. It has to warm the heart of normal people that the sociopaths are currently losing on several fronts. So ICE is the enemy of the “progressives”. What horrors are they guilty of? Ohmygosh, I cannot list anywhere close to the accusations… mostly false. In the article below we see a bit of what may well be offensive to the ones who have been running the show for a couple of decades… decadent decades. Let us normals celebrate the successes of […]

Bitterroot threat analysis

With a little help from my friends, we developed a current list of threats we could imagine to the world as we know it – specifically, our little corner of the world. The process, and threats are applicable to much of our country. Developing a useful list is a four step process. It is best to have several minds involved. I doubt the results change significantly from four participants to fourteen or more, but there is a minimum number to have the synergy of ideas from one triggering thoughts from another. 1) Brainstorm a list Hewlett Packard taught this for working in groups. It had to be fast, fun and friendly. Ideas came out and were scribed onto the board […]

The Amateur’s Code

An anonymous gift through the Darby Library for me was a binder containing PREPAREDNESS COMMUNICATIONS written by David Pruett / KF7ETX. It covers Ham radios, non-Ham optons, communications plans, study and other resources. Some new, some refresher, all well organized. I was particularly taken with this cultural bit written by a licensed amateur radio operator ninety years ago. Modern hams would do well to pay attention. While much has changed, the desirable personal attributes have not. I typed it in as written. – Ted – P.S. The photo is from my archives. I have no idea who it is, but doubt it is Paul Segal. It simply represents what amateur radio stations used to look like. The Amateur’s Code by […]

Who has my back?

A friend who rarely goes out unarmed was relating the attitude expressed by some in a hiking group of hers. Me, carry a defensive weapon??? Why should I, Jane has my back? (not her name) The question then becomes who has Jane’s back? Many of us are defensively armed for more than personal preservation. It is a civic duty, and obligation we feel for our community – both large and small. Could I watch a handful of thugs beat somebody to death? … and live with myself??? I know the answer is a lifetime of nightmares and recriminations about what I should have done. Yet I have no hopes of ever becoming a martial arts master … other than […]

Dan Bongino interviews Donald Trump

What a nice conversation these two have. This harkens back to the day when men were men, civilization was civil and news reporters were honorable. Watch, listen a bit. Turn it off when you find it out of line. You won’t turn it off until the interview ends.

The Hearings … didn’t go well for the instigators

They are completely embarrasing themselves … and everyone who is watching. The Democratic Party leaders are on a witch hunt without any witches. Dan Bogino, ex Secret Service, puts on a great analysis of the incredibly stupid Democratic Party impeachment effort Gen IV.

Do what you can do

In this Judicial Watch presentation, leader Tom Fitton describes Washington DC’s current political climate and encourages us not to be spectacular or special other than doing what we are personally capable of. No more and importantly, No less.

Hillary – the movie

I was beginning to think I was going to my grave without seeing some of these criminal acts come back into public view. Hallelujah! A movie has been produced that exposes A BUNCH OF IT. A couple things to keep in mind as you watch. 1) The definition of a psychopath from my post Sociopath Summer Camp October 24th, 2019: Superficial charm and good intelligence Untruthfulness and insincerity Lack of remorse and shame Poor judgment and failure to learn by experience Pathologic egocentricity and incapacity for love General poverty in major affective reactions Fantastic and uninviting behavior with alcohol and sometimes without Sex life impersonal, trivial, and poorly integrated 2) Hillary had at least one body double who stood in […]

TEOTWAWKI supply list

Below is an excellent compilation that we all could use as a preparation foundation. The End Of The World As We Know It has become a standard phrase covering any natural or man-made disruption to the easy life we take for granted. By easy, I mean the amazingly well-stocked store shelves, the ability to drive many miles any time we wish for whatever purposes tickle our fancy, and to live in relative comfort, safety and security. Nearly all of us succumb to the assumed continuation of this situation in spite of the myriad precarious factors that must all remain unchanged. In a matter of seconds we could go from the life we had taken for granted to one scrambling […]

Veterans’ Day

The April Fools’ Day counterpart. I mis-spent four of my younger years being what Henry Kissinger proclaimed to be “dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy”. I am thus qualified to titles variously offered us as veteran, veteran of foreign wars, Vietnam era veteran, hero and others equally meaningless to me. I gave almost no thought to who was profiting from my grossly sub-minimum-wage $100 a month labor. I served my time without question as if it were an inescapable prison sentence… not too far off the mark, in retrospect. For 3 years, 8 months and 11 days I did what I was told to do. My awakening puts me in good company many of whom […]

The Deep State’s penultimate act could be comedy

This is an interesting X22 Report. “The Deep State is following the plan they developed when Trump won the election – before he even took office. They continue to follow this roadmap even though EVERY STEP OF THE WAY HAS FAILED. They have not adjusted their strategy to deal with today’s realities.” This show below exposes example after example of The Deep State following its three year old playbook though it has been destroyed by changing events. They cannot come up with a better plan even though the script has collapsed on itself. The world is watching as they violate all laws and norms in flailing attempts to keep their plan working. It could be a fun show to […]
