H7N9 as a Hemorrhagic Flu

It would appear, from a report by POTRBlog that the H7N9 strain in China is a hemorrhagic flu, and that this information has been withheld by the authorities over there. I’m not sure about you all, but I don’t think I would be much a fan of bleeding out from places I’d rather not.

There certainly is a lot of doubt about the mutant progression of the virus, and its potential for human-to-human transmission at a level that spells “pandemic”.

Swine Flu Info from POTR Blog

A swine flu predictive map from POTRBlog. His video is just over two minutes in length.

Info related to it from his post. “We suspect that the H1N1 Swine Flu honed its virulence at the 2013 Hajj in Saudi Arabia, as such the map in the video is indicative of high density populations which would have primary exposure to Swine Flu returning from the Hajj.”

Turning attention from H5N1 to H7 N9 (new bird flu) for a moment. The death

Convoys - Configuration and Operation (Civilian)

For the purposes of a civilian prepper group, a convoy can be defined as a group of two or more vehicles (of any type) traveling together under common control from one point to another. There may be multiple way points. Not all vehicles may remain within the convoy. Some might leave at a predetermined point, and others may join. But all will be subject to a common plan of operation in order to maintain orderly and safe transit. Without the

Where is all the 22lr Ammunition?

22lr is hard to get. We had a shelf supply issue a while back that went away. But the situation has returned. Here is a video that one prepper made to explain his thought on it.

I’m not in his camp. I do believe the production has increased, but I also believe there are forces working against its distribution. Personal experience tells me that it isn’t hitting the shelves like it should be, or else the counter men I speak

A little video about a nationwide blackout...

I’m not sure how long this video will be up on YouTube, but American Blackout, by NatGeo, was posted recently.

For some easy reading about EMP, the more likely attack method for a grid-kill, see our three part series. (Fourth to come soon.)

 

Defensive Ammunition News

The US has exactly ONE lead smelting plant left. At the beginning of next year, not too long off, the US will have NONE. The Herculaneum smelter is the last primary ore smelter in existence. Several recycling operations will continue to run, but large bulk smelting is a thing of the past.

EPA regulations, jacked-up to 10x their recent levels, make it impossible to update this plant to new standards. It isn’t known if constructing a new plant from the

EMP Methods and Preps - Part III

For previous parts of this series, see:

EMP Methods and Preps – Part I

EMP Methods and Preps – Part II

In the first two parts of this series, I laid out why I believe the threat of an EMP attack on the United States is both possible, and feasible. The returns to the attacker far outweigh his investment in time, technology and the sacrifices among his personnel. I described how certain advances in technology and materials allow attackers to

The Destroyer Cometh

I was doing some work on Part III of the EMP series when my wife called my attention to an insidious problem. “Unsorted Bag” of our medical preps had become contaminated. This was a small bag plastic /vinyl bag about 15″ long, 7″ wide with a zipper closure along the top, and two flexible handles. Just an ordinary black bag with four rubber feet along the bottom. In it was an assortment of Celox products, Potassium Iodate and packets of

Have You Seen PORT-Blog?

Pissin’ On The Roses isn’t exactly the name I would have chosen for a blog that publishes information geared towards educating the public at large about various large scale threats. But I can’t think of another name, so I’ll let them keep it. (When I come up with one, I’ll let them know…. ) 🙂

I was first drawn to it by the reporting on the Fukushima disaster, and the blog’s detection of radioactive materials coming over via the Jet

Book Review -Prepping for a Suburban or Rural Community: Building a Civil Defense Plan for a Long-Term Catastrophe

Met a guy on Twitter. I had posted a tweet somewhere along the lines of “Civil Defense begins with YOU”. His response was to invite me to read his new book.

Yeah. Sure.

I don’t respond to many invitations, and for good reason. But something about his premise interested me – because it included as part of its foundation an EMP strike. So, I trotted over to Amazon and read what I could of the “Look Inside” feature. The material
