Some Thoughts on Killer Flus, and Government Health (couldn't) Care (less)

From POTR BLog,

I don’t generally post whole articles from other blogs, but this one from POTR Blog begs for exposure. I thought it was a fairly good write up on the presence of a killer flu, a government’s medical response (late in coming) and how cost controls in single-payer systems lead to personal tragedy without resource to recompense.

What will China, Canada and the US soon have in common? More than you might expect…

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”.

Fukushima Radiation Spike in Snow Storm

POTRBlog has recorded a spike in radiation during the snow storm in St. Louis. It began about 6 hours after the snow began to fall. His indoor meter mimicked the outdoor meter, which, as he noted, indicates a gamma radiological hit.

Here is a link to his article at POTR Blog, if you want to see the images. The text of the articles follows….

“As we had predicted, based on the Jet Stream pattern, we did have a radioactive snow

Freezing Cold Weather with Hot Fukushima Fallout?

Our compatriots over at POTRBlog have an interesting headline on their most recent post.

It reads: “We’re Expecting RADIOACTIVE SNOW, Will Our Geiger Counter Survive -10ºF”

POTRBlog was the first site I encountered that dealt with real-time reports on radioactive particle deposition here in the US, and serious attempts at privately trying to discover the likely origins, and the probability that new types of fallout were indeed from the Fukushima fiasco. I’ve read his work for a couple years, now.

Copied it full from ZeroHedge. If the ZeroHedgers have an issue with it, I’ll remove it.

The NSA’s 50-Page Catalog Of Back Door Penetration Techniques Revealed

While the world may have become habituated to (and perhaps revels in, thank you social media exhibitionist culture) the fact that the NSA is watching anyone and everyone, intercepting, recording, and hacking every electronic exchange regardless if it involves foreign “terrorists” or US housewives, the discoveries

Prepper Expos 2014 – Update

Looks like I’m getting more hits on our Expo Schedule page, but I haven’t updated it since November. So, I’ll take that as a reminder and get hopping again. I think it should be a regular feature with a bit more prominence than just a page link at the top of the site. Wuddayathink?

Cleaning the Berkey Light Filter Bucket

Image from

Mrs. LP, my beautiful wife, the woman who saved my life by marrying me, did a cleaning job on our Berkey-Light kitchen filtration unit. We scrub the elements to expose fresh matrix per instruction, and scrub the tubs, too. But our water does leave quite a bit of mineral deposit. Over time, they collect on the walls of the clean water bucket at the bottom of the stack.

In the past, it was scrub, scrub scrub.

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

The Mom Song

For you ladies…

What a Mom says in 24 hours condensed into 2 minutes 55 seconds and sung to the William Tell Overture. Absolutely amazing and spot on. I couldn’t believe I was hearing it!

What does this have to do with survivalism? Well, ask any MOM that cares for the household. Survival is an everyday affair!!
