"One of my favorite long-term food choices in our pantry is honey. Storing honey is a popular choice amongst preppers. After all, its versatility coupled with the capacity to last a lifetime is a perfect investment for your long-term food stores. Many are aware of the additives put into honey and ultra-filtering that inevitably removes all of the health benefits it possesses in its natural state. In fact, recent laboratory tests have revealed that 76% of the honey purchased in common chain grocery stores has been ultra filtered."

"The Alabama state motto is “We dare defend our rights,” and that sentiment was on display today in the Alabama State Capitol. Earlier this afternoon, Alabama become the first state in 2015 to pass the Convention of States application to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government. The Senate passed HJR 112 today, which had been first passed by the House a few weeks ago. Then, because of minor amendments to the resolution, it was sent back to the House where it passed by a vote of 92-7."
"Florida gun owners who do not have concealed-weapons permits could pack their firearms for two days during an emergency evacuation, under a law signed on Thursday by Governor Rick Scott. The measure was among 44 bills passed during the recently concluded legislative session and approved on Thursday by the Republican governor. Florida has had a concealed-weapon permit system since 1987 for licensed gun owners. The new measure expands the law to include non-licensees who are forced to leave their homes during hurricanes, wildfires or other emergencies. Opponents of the bill said evacuations were already high-stress situations and that guns would make public shelters more dangerous. Supporters argued that guns left at home would be easy prey for looters during an evacuation. The 48-hour limit was added at the request of police agencies, who did not want to give unlicensed gun owners an open-ended time to carry concealed pistols. It could be extended if the governor increases the duration of an emergency evacuation order. (Editing by David Adams and Peter Cooney)"
"Editor’s Note: Bird flu is hitting an unprecedented number of CAFO lot chickens right now, but the situation is being reported in the mainstream media as a mystery. Why are backyard flocks escaping the virulent bird flu that’s wiping out millions of caged birds in biosecure metal buildings? Is it because birds raised in fresh air and sunshine are more capable of fighting off viruses? If that was true then why are the wild waterfowl: ducks and geese, etc., catching the deadly flu? Or maybe they’re not. Something is just not adding up here… Could it be, as one commenter suggested below, intentional to make the price of meat and eggs skyrocket?"
"It’s far from the first time Californians have had to consider a “toilet to tap” water situation — something many deem an unsavory thought — but with the state in the thick of a historic drought and facing water restrictions, the governor seems to be warming up to the idea and is prepping citizens to do so as well. Gov. Jerry Brown asked local business and political leaders this week think about how astronauts keep fresh water on the International Space Station. “You’ve got to recycle,” he said. “I know people don’t like ‘toilet to tap,’ but it is memorable, it is memorable,” he said, drawing laughs. The Orange County Water District is among the early adopters of “toilet to tap,” expanding its wastewater recycling program last year. Orange County doesn’t funnel its recycled water directly back into taps though, but uses it to replenish its natural underground water supply."
"In a popular 1950’s movie, a small town doctor discovered the human race was being replaced one by one, with alien clones devoid of emotion. People would go to sleep and wake up after to find that the alien spores had taken over their mind and body. This movie which was produced in the 1950’s, was originally intended to be a strong message against communism and that if we fell asleep as a nation, we would one day awaken to a nation that had been hijacked by the communists. The warning is applicable today, but it is not alien spores that we need to be concerned about. In the modern day, we have gone to sleep and awakened to the fact that we have been conquered by the globalists. This article examines why Americans are being replaced by automation, illegal immigrants and this is being motivated by an autocratic oligarchy that wants to reduce the population by up to 90%. Jade Helm is an important step in the manifestation of this plot against America and ultimately against the world. Sometimes, it is good to be reminded about the reasons behind why we fight."
"Setting the Scene: This Act is a series of scenes that will lead up to the events, the paper chase, that are going on in Montana, in an effort to persuade the Court to recognize that rights of William wolf and the limitations of federal authority, as conceived by the Founders. It will provide an understanding of what was, why it was, and what happened to deceive us into believing that it no longer existed. It will conclude with the ongoing effort to restore the proper relationship between the federal government and us."
"On Tuesday, President Barack Obama signed a new bill intended to help keep better track of violent attacks against law enforcement. S.665 is also known as the Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu National Blue Alert Act of 2015, named for two NYPD officers killed late last year. It will set up infrastructure at the local, state, and federal level to keep meticulous track of acts committed against police. According to Congress’ website, the bill will create a Department of Justice-sponsored “Blue Alert” system, which mirrors the Amber Alert system created to locate abducted children. The bill defines “Blue Alert” as: “…information sent through the network relating to: (1) the serious injury or death of a law enforcement officer in the line of duty, (2) an officer who is missing in connection with the officer’s official duties, or (3) an imminent and credible threat that an individual intends to cause the serious injury or death of a law enforcement officer. On one hand, there is already a system in place to record the deaths of police officers. The FBI issues a national, annual report that details the number of officers killed and attacked (it also lists accidental deaths). Last year, 51 officers were killed on the job. Absent from the new bill was any attempt to record the numbers of murders committed by law enforcement. The deficiency in recording these figures is far more severe than recording deaths of cops. This is because the only numbers the federal government keeps on civilians are reported on a voluntary basis by local departments. Out of 17,000 local departments in America, only about 750 report heir data. In contrast, there is a high probability that departments are more eager to report the deaths of their own than the ones they cause."
"The U.S. Supreme Court yesterday decided Henderson v. United States — a case where Gun Owners of America and its foundation have been very active. The Court’s unanimous (9-0) ruling further protects Second Amendment rights and erects a higher barrier against the confiscation of firearms. The case involved Tony Henderson, a former Border Patrol agent with a previous pot conviction. Because of his felony, the government tried to take his firearms collection, which totaled more than $3,500. “In protecting an individual right to keep and bear arms, the Second Amendment secures a right of private property in those arms that are protected by the Amendment.” — GOA brief in Henderson v. United States, (p. 19)"
"Only law enforcement and the military would have access to body armor if a California Congressman gets his way. Democratic Rep. Mike Honda (D-California) would also like to ban the sale of “lower receivers” that are used to make homemade AR-15s and require the regulation of other homemade firearms in some of the most restrictive gun control legislation ever introduced in Congress. Honda introduced all three bills on the same day earlier this year. “These bills are sensible, reasonable measures to limit the damage that can be inflicted by guns and those who mean harm with them,” Honda said. “We have seen too many people injured and killed by guns to just stand by and do nothing. These bills will modernize our gun laws to reflect how weapons are currently getting into the wrong hands.” The Responsible Body Armor Possession Act, HR 378, would “amend the federal criminal code to prohibit the purchase, ownership, or possession of enhanced body armor,” according to a bill summary. The ban includes helmets and shields. Presumably, anyone who already has purchased such armor would be in violation of the law."
"Memorial Day commemorates soldiers killed in war. We are told that the war dead died for us and our freedom. US Marine General Smedley Butler challenged this view. He said that our soldiers died for the profits of the bankers, Wall Street, Standard Oil, and the United Fruit Company. Here is an excerpt from a speech that he gave in 1933:"
"The following documents were produced by the U.S. Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) Assessing Revolutionary and Insurgent Strategies (ARIS) studies program which features research conducted by the National Security Analysis Department of The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. The research follows along the tradition of the “Special Operations Research Office (SORO) of American University in the 1950s and 1960s.” Along with these casebooks and studies, individual histories of revolutionary and counterrevolutionary activities in Greece, Guatemala, Algeria and Cuba are also available from their website."
"US Navy plans to conduct vast military exercises in Alaska through the next five years:
- the navy itself estimates this will cause massive disruptions to wildlife
- as well as pollute the land with over 350,000 pounds of spent munitions
- residents fear the sea fish they rely on for their livelihoods will dwindle or be contaminated"
"We don’t have to live in a medicated world, but we certainly choose to. The crux of the matter is that we refuse to proactively think about prevention because we reactively commit to treating the symptoms of underlying health problems. This is the allopathic model. We want the quick fix so we can continue our poor lifestyle and dietary habits. It doesn’t have to be this way, but it is. We can blame doctors, the medical institutions and healthcare systems all we want, but self-responsibility is our only recourse if we are ever to surface from this mess. There are no excuses–if you’re taking one of these drugs, consult with a Natural Health Practitioner this week about phasing out your medication and phasing in these powerful natural foods and remedies."
