"It is estimated that the average American meal travels about 1,500 miles to get from farm to plate. Our dependency on far away food sources leaves a region vulnerable to supply disruptions, and removes any real accountability of producer to consumer. As well, nutritional value can quickly decline as time passes after harvest. Finding local food sources can circumvent this impending issue and, because locally-grown produce is freshest, it is more nutritionally complete. For the last ten years, the number of farmers markets have more than doubled. Although buying from local farmers markets has taken off, not all states share the same enthusiasm. Strolling with the Heifers has put out a very informative graphic on how the states compare in the growing interest in locally produced food."
"Spring…when a man’s mind turns to….well, ok, it’s already there, as per male SOP….but it should ALSO turn to making sure the winter weapons and equipment set up is inspected and modified for more temperate use. Here’s a few things you need to consider:"
"Food is medicine, and the Chinese may understand the saying best with their long history of medicinal remedies to cure a wide variety of ailments. Now they’ve figured out what vitamin can lower the risk of stroke. Researchers from Perking First Hospital in Beijing studied patients with high blood pressure and found vitamin B had the power to lower their stroke risk. Their findings, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, outline healthy foods that were rich in vitamin B and able to naturally protect the inner walls of a person’s arteries."
"Fish are dying off all over the globe in bodies of fresh water and oceans. There are of course many underlying causes, but what part may the ongoing climate engineering contamination play in this equation? The eastern half of the US lower 48 states has been pounded with engineered "winter" storms over and over in recent years. A major part of the geoengineering process related to these storms is the artificial/chemical ice nucleation process. This process not only cools the temperatures down in a storm system and on the ground, the nucleating material also causes ice to form and remain on bodies of water often with water temperatures that would otherwise have been too high for ice to form and remain for extended times naturally."
"The cause of Michael Fox’s Parkinson’s disease is always side-stepped by the media, similar to the dishonest tobacco precedent. Readers may notice there has never been a peep about the cause; and moreover, the talk has been singularly about finding the supposedly elusive cure. The cause of Fox’s disease is not yet politically correct to attack. It would get most reporters fired."
"Those currently proposing forced vaccination laws point to a U.S. Supreme Court decision from 1905: Jacobson v. Massachusetts. In fact, the Supreme Court has not heard a compulsory vaccine case since the 1920s. In the article presented here, Attorney Emord looks at the history of compulsory vaccination, and shows how it was Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. who stripped away Fourteenth Amendment rights in regards to compulsory vaccination, the very same judge who ruled in favor of forced sterilization which was supported by the “science” of that day, eugenics. Eugenics is the same “science” used by the Nazis in Germany to endorse eliminating “feeble-minded” people in favor of a “master race.”
"For two decades, we've been encouraged — some might say hounded — into making drinking water a habit. We carry it in plastic bottles, reusable canisters, on our backs to suck through elaborate tubing. We might even hire a doctor to have it injected into our veins. Have we gone mad? Clean, clear water: It's the most essential of essentials. Humans need it to survive. Our bodies are 60% water; the brain and heart, 73%, the lungs, 83%. "You need to be hydrated, and our bodies function best when [they are] in water balance," said Boston sports nutritionist Nancy Clark, who works with the Red Sox, among others."
"Something is cropping up all over Los Angeles, California, like poisonous mushrooms, with equally toxic effects, but it’s not poisonous mushrooms. It’s the standard cell tower, along with RF and EMF public relations pitches that are generated. Let’s hear what’s really happening in everyday, on-the-ground life, especially in ‘cell tower haven’ Los Angeles, California."
"It’s not every day you see a politician willingly and knowingly commit treason against the U.S. twice in a one month period, yet we now see Congressman Louis Gutierrez do just that after publicly announcing his new “toolkit” for illegal immigrants to break the law and avoid deportation. In all fairness, Congressman Gutierrez (D-IL) may have been talking to people that he honestly believes are eligible for President Obama’s amnesty program when he decided to break U.S. law and commit several felonies. It doesn’t excuse that he knowingly created his “toolkit” after a federal judge halted the unconstitutional amnesty program until it could be heard in court. It was ruled that any attempt by the federal government and its employees, Congress included, would be held in contempt of court if they continue to try to implement the charade."
"When a government administration infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood also takes control of the school system, you can bet that Islamic indoctrination will slowly but surely begin to creep its way into our children’s curriculum. Such was the case with Westmoreland Middle School in Tennessee. However, when a Vietnam veteran found out what his granddaughter was learning in class, he knew he was ready to fight his next battle, this time on the home front. Herb Mays earned a Purple Heart and a Silver Star for his heroic service in Vietnam, but when he expected his fighting days were over after becoming a pastor in the South, he quickly realized that a new enemy was sneaking into the classroom. Mays says that he was shocked when his 13-year-old granddaughter showed him what was being taught in her social studies class. “It says Allah is the creator. He’s the god who created us all. I don’t believe Allah created the heavens and the earth, so I have a problem with this being taught to children in school,” Mays told WTVC."
"It’s just a dollar, we often hear these days referring to the cheapest value of money one can pay for something. While the value of the US dollar or the greenback has eroded over time, it remains the subject of many fascinating information bordering on factual to imaginary. Many urban legends surround the US dollar bills in general and while some of these were pronounced as hoaxes either by the federal government or by dollar experts, a number of them still persist up to this time."
"Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) has declared a state of emergency as Indiana battles the worst HIV outbreak in its history. At least 79 people have been diagnosed in one rural area, and the epidemic is linked to needle-sharing by opiate users. The outbreak in Scott County, Indiana began with the first diagnosis in mid-December. By late January, there were seven known HIV-positive patients in the rural, five-county area. In February, the number climbed to 26. Now there are 79 confirmed cases of HIV originating in the southeastern Indiana county. Typically, Scott County would see fewer than five new HIV cases in a year, state officials said. Pence issued an executive order Thursday that orders the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) to set up an incident command center to coordinate HIV treatment and substance abuse treatment and requires state and local health, law enforcement and emergency response agencies, as well as health care providers and hospitals to cooperate and assist in disaster response. The order also authorizes a “targeted, short-term needle exchange program for the sole purpose of containing the epidemic.” Pence has consistently said he doesn’t support needle exchanges as an anti-drug policy."
"After largely failing to prod state governments into developing a national identification system known as “REAL ID,” Republican lawmakers in Congress are once again pushing an Obama-backed scheme that would force every American to have a national ID card containing sensitive biometric data. The controversial plan, embedded in an immigration-enforcement bill, has been in the works for years, but has consistently been met with stiff opposition from liberty-minded grassroots organizations and activists. While the plan has failed in previous Congresses thanks to a groundswell of opposition, critics of the measure say that without prompt action, the unconstitutional scheme could soon become a reality."
"How would you feel if your phone carrier accidentally leaked every record of every call you made—and didn’t even tell you? If you’re like most Americans, you would be livid, because the vast majority of us care deeply about the privacy of our phone records. A November report from the Pew Research Center found that 82 percent of Americans consider location information gathered by their phones to be “sensitive” or “very sensitive,” and 75 percent feel that way about the numbers they have called or texted. But a forthcoming bill from Congress could dramatically reduce the security of that information—amid a number of high-profile data breaches."
"We don’t see the economy being as strong as portrayed in the media.”
"What is “homeland security?” Whatever it is, the federal government has spent on a fortune on it. In the aftermath of 9/11 and the beginning of the interminable War on Terror, the Bush administration founded the Department of Homeland Security to act as a central, coordinating office which could respond to the new threats of the modern era. But in addition to the funds pouring into that department, Congress has allocated vast sums for “homeland security” expenditures in other departments, most notably at the Pentagon. In fact, according to a new investigation from the Nation Institute’s Tomdispatch, $791 billion dollars in federal funding have gone to homeland security, both within and without the department. “To give you a sense of just how big that is,” write analysts Chris Hellman and Mattea Kramer, “Washington spent an inflation-adjusted $500 billion on the entire New Deal.” It is perhaps easy to understand why Congress would be willing to shovel so much money into homeland security. After all, nobody wants to be seen to vote against keeping America safe—particularly given that the Department of Homeland Security was founded in the aftermath of the worst terrorist attack in American history. For that reason, homeland security will likely emerge from the American austerity wars relatively intact."
"Are there really secret manipulations of the economy going on in the shadows of Wall Street and Washington? Do bears crap in the woods? The NY Post’s controversial columnist John Crudele has thrown down the gauntlet, declaring that the market is rigged. And not only does everyone know it, but it is now being admitted. The stock market is rigged. When I started making that claim years ago — and provided solid evidence — people scoffed. Some called it a conspiracy theory, tinfoil hats and that sort of stuff. Most people just ignored me. But that’s not happening anymore. The dirty secret is out. Ed Yardeni, a longtime Wall Street guru who isn’t one of the clowns of the bunch, said flat out last week that the market was being propped up. “These markets are all rigged, and I don’t say that critically. I just say that factually,” he asserted on CNBC. Yardeni’s claim is the most basic one: that the Federal Reserve won’t do anything that will upset Wall Street and, in fact, is doing all it can to help the stock market."
"The Australian Federal Government looks set to introduce a tax on bank deposits in the May budget. The idea of a bank deposit tax was raised by Labor in 2013 and was criticised by Tony Abbott at the time. Assistant Treasurer Josh Frydenberg has indicated an announcement on the new tax could be made before the budget. The Government is heading for a fight with the banking industry, which has warned it will have to pass the cost back onto customers."
"With the Senate focused on the 2016 budget, Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) has proposed an amendment that would ban federally mandated gun control. Lee’s amendment would ban any future gun control from lawmakers that fails to garner “two-thirds of senators” in support. It would also ban regulations issued by agencies like the ATF. According to The Hill, Senators David Ritter (R-La) and James Inhofe (R-Okla) have also introduced their own amendment. More narrowly drawn, theirs focuses on the ATF by prohibiting that agency from “attempting to ban bullets that are primarily used by hunters and sportsmen.” Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn) and Steven Daines (R-Mont) are also putting forth an amendment to protect antique guns that have ivory handles."
"“If you don’t follow these directions you’ll likely end up lost on a curvy mountain road.” Tom Oar gave this last piece of advice on the phone as my wife carefully wrote down his directions.. We were preparing to drive to Montana and visit him and his wife, Nancy, over the weekend. You might recognize Tom. He’s one of the “Mountain Men” from the History Channel’s popular program. Tom Oar has made his home in Montana’s secluded Yaak River Valley, far removed from the hustle of modern life. With his wife by his side, he survives by trapping, harvesting his own meat and tanning the hides. He had also warned us that we would have no cell service in the area. I assumed he had meant only near his house. Nope! I don’t think we had cell service at all after crossing the border into Montana from northern Idaho. What started out as a scenic family drive to spend some time with a couple of folks who are light-years ahead of me in the realm of self-sufficiency could have very easily turned into a nightmare. My first mistake? Not listening to my wife."
"Three pro-gun senate bills have been introduced in the North Carolina Legislature. These are all important bills that will help preserve your right to keep and bear arms in North Carolina. They include:"
"The New York State Assembly voted a resounding 94-49 Wednesday to approve a bill that would allow third trimester abortions using procedures such as a shot of poison to the baby's heart by medical professionals who won't necessarily be doctors. National Right to Life, highlighted the approval of the bill, AB 6221. The bill was culled from the previous 10-point Women's Equality Act, which was broken down into stand-alone bills. Protections relating to human trafficking, domestic violence, and sexual harassment in the Women's Equality Act had been stymied by abortion advocates pushing the expansion of third-trimester abortions. The bill sponsored by Assemblywoman Deborah Glick, would expand New York State law, which now only allows abortion in the third trimester when the mother's life is in danger, to permit abortion up to nine months of pregnancy. The bill also seeks to make it legal for a woman to have an abortion for any reason "relevant to the well-being of the patient." This reason could be physical, emotional or psychological. Lori Kehoe, New York State Right to Life executive director, decried the passage of the bill."
"In this day and age, knowing full well the level of incompetence as well as calculated maneuvering of which the government has proven themselves capable, I can't imagine how anyone could ever put aside the wisdom of being prepared in favor of a "wait and see" attitude. I actually know people who have told me that they aren't bothering with any kind of emergency preparedness efforts, because they think there will be time to buy extra food, medical supplies, etc. when the time comes. They cannot fathom the idea that our government either doesn't necessarily see it as their responsibility to look after each individual citizen and family or they have simply come to the understanding that doing so isn't possible. The United States government has entire sections of the FEMA website, etc. dedicated to instructions on how to be prepared and advising that every family should keep emergency supplies both in their homes and their cars. They are not only telling you how to take care of yourself – they are literally advising that you do so, saying in all but plane graphic language that, "If things get bad enough, you're on your own." Yet, people still won't see it."
"Observing the world around them, many folks have come to the conclusion that the End is near - the End of the dollar, the End of freedom, the End of Western Civilization, the End of the current economic and political systems, etc... Whether this is intentionally planned by the Elites or the inevitable result of decades of bad decisions & general incompetence, its easy to see why many feel this way... So, how can we prepare?"
"Lets first start with....if the wound is really large you need to go to the doctors or find medical help.
- If it is a wound you can handle or have no choice but to handle the first thing you need to do is clean the wound the best you can.
- Try holding the wound closed and see if butterflying it with a bandage or tape does the trick..and elevate it if you can to.
If this does not work then here are a few things that have worked.
