A Reply to a YouTube Series of Vids

A reply to a series of videos from a YouTube user by the name of StankMouthCharlie.

Stank Mouth posted a quartet of videos with the title “Why Most Doomsday Preppers Will Die.” They can be found here:

In Charlie’s series, he covers a number of issues relating to the foolishness of prepper stockpiling, training, bugging in or out, marksmanship, manliness, shelters and retreats – all in the face of predatory “gangs” or “posses” with skills and

Monkey See – Monkey Do

Police raids are in the news more and more for their violence, lack of care for those being raided, dog killings – and all of these no-knock raids appear to be fashion shows for the latest military sales to police departments across the land. It’s as if the best stories of abuse are justification for greater efforts at the same.

One does bad, gets away with it – and another seeks to top it.

Criminals conducting home invasions also are

EMP Methods and Preps - Part II

“How does an EMP work?”

In many discussions of EMP, the author describes a series of events: the bomb detonating, the pulse falling and the destruction afterward. Not very often is the pulse creation process explained. Studies since 1986 have published some interesting factoids about EMP generation, and the capabilities of the devices that do it. For instance, it is assumed that the larger nuclear devices within the megaton range produce the hardest hitting pulses. This is true, or not,

Chaos from the Sky: Why the EMP Threat Is Real

This Heritage Blog article is in line with one I began a couple weeks ago, and haven’t completed. I’ll do so this week. (Cutting down some information into digestible pieces) It highlights certain important elements from the EMP debate the quietly rages across the nation. It is the elephant no one wants to recognize, yet they talk behind its back as they go into the next room.

The central thought

Puyallup, Washington Sics Police on Parents

Not really. But, they did take that approach for a training exercise. Somehow, angry parents now warrant a police response since they are obviously the central power in crime in America. Shooting drills with a ticked-off mom as the target – are they really necessary in America? What about free speech? I know some women come born with assault-mouths, but they are hardly weapons against anything other than the receiver’s ears.

Read the article and watch the video.

The only

The 2nd Boston Massacre, and Prepper Lessons

(( I began to write this on Tuesday. Events kept me from completing it, so the tenses herein might be a little off, considering it is a week after the event. ))

We were hit again. Already the “false flag operation” theories are flying, and I’ve seen some damnably weak “reasoning” in support of them. I’m not going to get caught up in that mess, because the promoters of them are no more in the know than the majority of

EMP Attack Threat - North Korea

I’ll preface this posting with the following:

I don’t believe North Korea has an EMP device, or a nuke large enough to do the job, or a delivery system powerful enough to properly position the weapon. I also believe we possess the ability with THAAD and other systems to destroy any missile launched under threat circumstances.

On the other hand…. I am increasingly wary of that “satellite” they put up recently and its low orbit, 17 second period rotation “blinder”.

A Brief History of Drones, by John Sifton

Here is an article published in Feb 2012, just over a year ago. It makes for good reading.


It was ten years ago this month, on February 4, 2002, that the CIA first used an unmanned Predator drone in a targeted killing. The strike was in Paktia province in Afghanistan, near the city of Khost. The intended target was Osama bin Laden, or at least someone in the CIA had thought so. Donald Rumsfeld later explained, using the passive

The Census Dot Map

Every once in a while, someone comes up with a neat little internet tool that causes the mind to wander into dusty territory. Looking at this map might remind you of the pictures from space showing lights at night on various continents. It might remind you of how crowded some locations are. Or, it may reinforce your thoughts on bug-outs and roaming hordes.

The Census Dot Map is most useful with “Toggle Labels” on, and of course, zoomed in to

Swiss Army Ready for Euro Collapse

From Businessweek, January 31, 2013.

As snipers fanned out over the rooftops of the Alpine resort and the Swiss Armed Forces rolled miles of barbed wire through the town, officers had more than the security of Mario Draghi and Lloyd Blankfein in mind. They were also preparing for European chaos should the euro ever collapse.

At their annual exercise in September, the Swiss army drilled for an imagined conflict between two neighboring states (the landlocked nation borders Austria, France, Germany,
