"AROUND NOW, THE HOOKS on my mudroom walls offer no space for coats (though the weather hints I’ll be needing mine). Too many paper shopping bags are hanging there instead (photo above), one after another with faded, upside-down plants inside, meant to let go of their increasingly dry seed. That’s my primitive tactic, but there are better ways to save seed, and the Organic Seed Alliance shares them—from which variety you grow with eventual saving in mind, to maintaining that crop in the garden, to drying and even storing it–in a free, 30-page book-like pdf download loaded with both the botanical science and sensible tips, too."
"We have been trying to expand our skills at curing meats, making specialty meat products and making sausages especially from wild game. We started with the simplest versions of fresh sausage, then progressed to stuffing natural casings to make sausage links and then started smoking the links. We have made fresh breakfast sausage, sweet Italian sausage, smoked Keilbasa, smoked Andouille, smoked elk sticks and boudain."
"SO many of us think of bugging out of our home to get to a safe predetermined location. But how many people have a bug out bag to get out of the work place and back home? Some people call this a “Get Home Bag.” This is a great bag to keep that “escape and evade clothing” that I talked about in the prior chapter. But also it is wise to have other items like some food, water, meds, tools, weapons, etc."
(Sgt Trainer: A very good article with recommendations.)
"Silver has been used medicinally and preventatively for centuries. Hippocrates, the father of medicine, and Pliny the Elder, a Roman scholar, both wrote of the use of silver to treat wounds and prevent disease. Water, milk and vinegar were stored in silver containers to maintain freshness and prevent contamination since ancient times. As recently as the 1900s, people placed silver coins in milk to keep it from spoiling. It is even used in the water supply at the International Space Station as a disinfectant. Burn wards use bandages soaked in a silver solution to prevent infection when treating 2nd and 3rd degree burns. Today, colloidal silver, a suspension of particles of silver ion in distilled water, is available from most health food stores. It can be used externally as a spray, to disinfect and aid in the healing of wounds or rashes. Taken internally it can be used as a general immune system booster or in higher doses, as a natural antibiotic. It has been shown to aid in healing everything from the common cold to cancer."
"Even in your wildest dreams, did you ever think that someone to whom you sold your old phone after processing the highly suggested “Factory Reset”, would be accessing lot of information you hid behind layers of passwords, when the phone was your own? As disconcerting as it might sound, this in fact can be the case. A recent study, titled ‘Security Analysis of Android Factory Resets’, can prove to be an eye-opener for many!"
"I NEVER THOUGHT… I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard people on t.v. news programs crying and saying, “I never thought it could (or would) happen here.” Excuse me, is anyone out there? Violent crimes can and do happen, right where you never thought they would or could happen. You must be prepared for the unexpected. If you’re prepared for the unexpected, then it won’t be unexpected."
"IraqVeteran8888 continues his “how long is XXX lethal to?” video this time going up in bullet diameter to .45 inches. The nearly half-inch bullet is lethal to a surprisingly long way. While limited by their own accuracy (I will give them credit for trying to shoot .45 out of a handgun or rifle over 200 yards), the round is more than effective for long-range lobbing."
"A factoid is a datum that is unproven and probably false, but repeated so often by assumed authorities that it’s accepted as true. Regardless of how many authorities think their dietary suggestions are factual, there are still some mythical factoids that are included in many articles on health, especially but not exclusively from mainstream sources. Many of the mythical factoids presented benefit the processed food and medical business models. The idea that dosage determines toxicity is a centuries old standard that is false. It is still used today by a majority of health “experts” and government agencies to assume that if you don’t get violently ill or die immediately after consuming toxic ingredients, those ingredients are safe. The gradual disintegration of our immune systems and inner-terrain homeostasis is ignored, so those ingredients are considered safe for processed foods and beverages, including tap water."
"What if conventional wisdom regarding our most fundamental energy requirements has been wrong all along and we can directly harness the energy of the Sun when we consume ‘plant blood’? Plants are amazing, aren’t they? They have no need to roam about hunting other creatures for food, because they figured out a way to capture the energy of the Sun directly through these little light-harvesting molecules known as chlorophyll; a molecule, incidentally, which bears uncanny resemblance to human blood because it is structurally identical to hemoglobin, other than it has a magnesium atom at its core and not iron as in red blooded animals."
"As the head of the executive branch of the Federal Government, the U.S. president is supposed to be responsible for protecting the citizens of this country. That statement needs to be dumbed down…er clarified for Obama, to make it clear that the citizens he is responsible for protecting are U.S. citizens… and not murderous MS-13 gang members that come here from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala.

"Warning: Some of the images shown were taken at the time of surgery and are graphic. You might want to skip this post if you have a weak stomach. For years it’s been believed leeches do not carry diseases capable of infecting humans. This is slowly changing. While rare, infections and complications do occur. We will discuss which fish antibiotics to use in those cases, as well as how to remove leeches and treat the prolonged bleeding caused by their bites."
"Preppers are preparing to survive in a world where modern conveniences are obsolete. After the SHTF, we won’t be able to run to the corner market to pick up milk, bread, and other staples. This is why we store so much food. However, have you thought about how you will replace all the other things we use on a daily basis–containers, cookware, clothing, and other items? It’s important to have a “repurposing” mindset. Many of the things you have and use today can be used again. Before you throw things away, you need to think twice about it. For all you know, your trash today could very well be your treasure tomorrow. Here are some examples of things you should stop throwing away and start setting aside for the future. Remember, during long-term disasters almost everything has a use."
"The short answer is: “Yes”. The long answer is the subject of this post. In the abstract, if you have a clean container with nothing but water in it, and the container is sealed, the water should keep indefinitely. It starts with no bacteria. It is sealed, so no bacteria can enter. And there would be nothing in the container that any bacteria could use as food, to multiply. But that scenario is unrealistic.
(Sgt Trainer: The last part of the above paragraph can be misleading. It is not necessarily unrealistic. I've stored water in both the blue 15 and 55 gallon water containers for 7 years before I moved. I put the necessary amounts of unscented bleach in each barrel and closed them off with the screw-on caps that came with them. I checked them initially each month. After six months, I stopped checking. When I subsequently moved...the water in them was still as fresh and good as when I filled them. If you can leave them in a dry cool place and don't bother them, they should still be good for you. Granted, they were filled with tap water, but I had Big Berkey water filters, including the arsenic and fluoride filters, and the plan was to filter the water before consuming it anyway.)
"Start with clean water, soda, or other plastic bottles or milk cartons. Friends, family, and organizations will be happy to save them for you all year just for asking."
"Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to speak to the Chino Valley, AZ. chapter of the Oathkeepers. I came away convinced that I shared a room, for 90 minutes, with people who grasp the importance of the times that we are living in and these former law enforcement and military personnel are dedicated to convincing today’s LEO’s and military to not take up arms against the American people when ordered to do so. I am further convinced that we are beginning to enter a period of time where some in the military are questioning their military mission regarding Jade Helm which means that after months of keeping our collective journalistic eye on the ball, the work is beginning to pay off."

"[If you really study the patterns] you can actually see when they turn on and off the algorithm program used to manipulate the gold and silver markets. – Jeff Nielson, Shadow of Truth. Rule of Law has been completely abandoned by the Government and business elite. What remains is a citizenry in this country that has been largely dumbed-down and taught to ignore or deny the reality unfolding right before its eyes. What’s left is an elitist club of political and corporate “leaders” who are using every possible means to keep our system from collapsing, enabling them to steal or confiscate every last crumb of middle class wealth. If you don’t have enough spare cash to own your own Washington, DC politician, you are middle class – you are not part of “The Club.” The Shadow of Truth hosted a fascinating conversation (at least we found it fascinating) with Jeff Nielson of Bullion Bulls Canada."
"While All News Pipeline continues to receive photographs from readers across the country of strange happenings at Wal Marts and military convoys, the 1st video below from videographer HighImpactFlix should finally silence the govt agents and trolls attempting to debunk ties between Jade Helm 15, the US Military and Wal Marts across the country as an employee from Wal Marts home office makes the eye-opening admission himself about Wal Marts ties to the US military and the US military's ability to use Wal Mart stores across the country if they so desire. If you only have time to listen to a short portion of this video, begin at the 3 minute 7 second mark for the admission that should finally silence the trolls; if you have time to listen to the entire video, listen to how the tone of this guys voice changes when asked about Jade Helm 15 from earlier in the conversation. This one should be a game changer. Much more below videos including new pictures sent to ANP by a reader in Texas showing what could be a 'prison cell' and more shipping containers at a still-open Walmart in Texas."
