"Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence? Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons in the revolutionary army, another had two sons captured. Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the revolutionary war. They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor."
"The Western powers are in serious trouble. The once great British Anglo-American Empire, the envy of the world, now resembles more of a phony Hollywood Set backed by a mountain of worthless derivatives and debt. The only thing holding up the Western Financial Empire’s House of Cards is faith that market will continue to believe increasing debt and monetary printing are practical solutions for long-term prosperity. I imagine there is a limit to the level of INSANITY these markets can reach. Here is one chart that perfectly describes how this insanity has impacted investors in the top Western countries:"
"Everything I ever told you about scalars.. and using a transmitter to generate plasma… now comes out. Now they are going to use it to mount to vehicles! As it turns out, not only is the plasma good for heating an area in the sky for weather modification, it can also stop shockwaves from incoming blasts. Not only can the plasma reflect RF (radio frequency) it will reflect physical shockwaves!! Done between two transmitters, it will STOP SHOCKWAVES from explosions by reflecting the waves with an ion mirror! Ionization using two transmitters… SCALAR energy forming at a distance from the transmitter."
"Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) plans to meet with incoming ATF director Thomas Brandon and talk to him about reviving the AR-15 ammo ban on the M855 round. Breitbart News previously reported that current ATF director B. Todd Jones tendered his resignation on March 20 in the wake of the AR-15 ammo ban backlash and will be relinquishing his office at the end of the month. At that time, his deputy director, Brandon, will be taking the agency’s reins at that time. According to The Hill, Israel wants to meet with Brandon to encourage the agency to revive the ban. Israel is convinced Jones handled the ban “sloppily,” which led to the ban being pulled. He “[hopes] under new leadership the ATF can have a more transparent and responsive process” than during the failed ban push. On the other side of the aisle, Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wisc.) says Jones’ departure marks the end of the AR-15 ammo ban. Moreover, he said “the departure of Jones is further proof the ATF should be eliminated.”

"BLT sandwiches may need to add an A to the acronym -- for antibiotics. Soaring demand for meat across the world has caused a major uptick in the amount of antimicrobial drugs in pork, beef and poultry, according to a new study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. But as bacon sales sizzle and China -- where pork is the favored meat -- becomes wealthier, pig farmers around the world are meeting demand by using about four times as much antibiotics per pound of meat as cattle ranchers. Poultry is a close second."
"Hundreds of disabled Americans are killed in police encounters across the US every year, many of whom are people of color, according to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). The ACLU filed a brief to the US Supreme court on Friday arguing that hundreds of Americans with disabilities and mental disorders die every year at the hands of police and many more become seriously injured. “Many of these deaths and injuries are needless, the tragic result of police failing to use well-established and effective law enforcement practices that take disability into account,” the ACLU wrote. The civil liberties advocacy group filed the brief in support of a mentally ill woman who is suing San Francisco police for shooting her five times. The US Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case on Monday."
"With Jade Helm 15 having gone viral across the internet, US Army Special Operations Command is having to push back against 'alarmists claims' that we're actually witnessing 'martial law-style' drills according to Stars and Stripes while 2 more states, Florida and Mississippi, have added exercises to their states that will include 'surgical strikes' and 'extractions' according to a news conference addressing Jade Helm 15 included in the 1st video below for you to hear for yourself. Interestingly enough, the US military is unable to view websites reporting on Jade Helm 15 due to their sophisticated firewall which prevents them from accessing 'truth' websites. From the Stars and Stripes story: "Officials at USASOCM were not able to immediately verify the authenticity of the (Jade Helm 15) slide show because their computer firewalls prevented them from accessing the websites where the document appeared." When Jade Helm 15 originally broke on the internet, government trolls and the uninformed immediate pounced all over the comment sections of websites reporting the story, calling it false, made-up, fiction, and videographer Lorri Anderson addresses the trolls in the video below, proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Jade Helm 15 exercises are 'real' via the words of Jade Helm Operations Planner Thomas Meade who tells us himself that additional operations will be held in Florida and Mississippi in addition to the other 7 states previously reported. You can also listen to the entire news conference here in addition to the video below."
"Lobbying lawmakers for a rate hike is one thing, but now Montana’s biggest electric and gas utility is battling to block a referendum on expanding gun rights. Publicly regulated NorthWestern Energy contends the measure would make it harder to keep their workplaces weapons-free. But the Montana Shooting Sports Association accuses the utility of sticking its nose into a political debate where it doesn’t belong. “NorthWestern is opposing a bill that has nothing to do with their corporate mission delivering electricity to its customers,” the group’s Gary Marbut told FoxNews.com Monday. He claimed NorthWestern’s opposition was contrary to the interests of its 542,000 gas and electric customers in Montana, most of whom are avid gun owners and hunters. “Because they are a large corporation and have been given a monopoly by the Public Service Commission, they really have no business weighing in on civil rights,” Marbut said."
"Nobody ever said there were too many ways to clean water. When it comes to the one resource that you need more than any other, it’s a good idea to learn as many methods of filtration as you can, because the situations you might find yourself in without clean water, are highly variable. The tools that are available in one situation may be lacking in another, so you should have a long list of water filtration methods in your head. One of the easiest methods you may not have been aware of, involves the use of charcoal. It’s no secret that the carbon found in charcoal is an excellent tool for absorbing a wide range organisms and chemicals, and if you currently own a water filter, you’ve probably already used activated charcoal to clean your water. However, activated charcoal isn’t completely necessary. It will certainly do a much better job than ordinary charcoal, so don’t think for a minute that you’re wasting your money on a high quality water filter. It’s just that, ordinary charcoal in its raw state is surprisingly effective for what it is, and may work in a pinch if you don’t have any better tools available."
"In a move sure to draw fire from homeowners, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District wants to ban the sale of all homes with wood-burning fireplaces. To rent or sell homes, homeowners would have to replace their wood fireplaces with gas ones. The ban would also extend to fireplaces in all new homes."
"In recent months, both North Korea and Iran have threatened to launch separate EMP attacks upon the United States. Is such an attack likely? Would a foreign entity dare to launch such an attack given the threats made by Iran and North Korea? However, the emerging information does not suggest that North Korea or Iran will be the perpetrator. They may get the blame for an upcoming false flag attack. However, the real perpetrator are likely to be the forces connected to JH 15 and the drills are providing cover for such an event. If an attack was launched upon the power grid, what would be the effects? These questions are the subject of this article. I have learned that the Jade Helm 15 (JH 15) drill is covertly practicing for the suspension of grid services to isolated communities who are hypothetically “resistant” to the takeover of the United States by foreign entities. In other words, although a nation-wide attack upon the grid is not likely, isolated attacks are likely as will be the takedown of most of the power grids of the United States without the use of EMP weapons. Further, it was announced that JH 15 would commence on July 15. However, I received credible and multiple reports that JH 15 is already underway and there is a lot about this drill that is not publicly available but the details are beginning to surface through back channels. A phone call to a trusted source revealed that JH 15 is indeed underway and attacks upon the power grid are part of the drill. In the meantime, we need to put all eyes on JH 15 as it relates to the topic of this article. However, there is a lot more that is beginning to surface about JH 15 that is equally devastating. Meanwhile, what is one to do with regard to an attack upon the grid? This will be the topic of a future article along with the JH 15 factor."
"Starting April 1st, felons will no longer be the only ones in the state of Wisconsin to have their DNA forcibly taken. The state is expanding its DNA collection regime to include ALL criminal misdemeanor convictions. The new law being implemented is expected to exponentially increase the number of samples being analyzed in Madison. The current number of DNA profiles created, from the felons’ samples, ranges from 10,000-12,000 per year. Of those cases, 550 positive hits were made on unsolved cases, according to Fox 6. The number of samples is expected to potentially increase to an estimated 60,000 samples being collected per year. Police make the case that perhaps thousands of unsolved crimes could be solved."
"While legislation expanding how and where Texans can carry weapons is dominating the Legislature this week, one state lawmaker is targeting the doctor’s office as a place to keep the federal government from learning who owns guns. Over the objections of the medical community, state Rep. Stuart Spitzer, R-Kaufman, has filed a bill that would prohibit doctors from asking patients whether they own a firearm and makes the Texas Medical Board, which licenses physicians, responsible for doling out punishment. “Pediatricians are asking children away from their parents, ‘Do you have guns in your house?’ and then reporting this on the electronic health records, and then the federal government, frankly, has access to who has guns and who doesn’t,” Spitzer said in a recent interview. He said he experienced the phenomenon firsthand when he took his daughter to the doctor, who asked her whether there were any guns in the house. Spitzer, a surgeon, said he wanted to make sure that doctors “have the right not to ask that.”
"Over a recent dinner at my place with like-minded friends, the conversation turned to the state of the world, our country, and society in general. While this was supposed to be a fun evening and a much needed break from long work-days, the conversation became quite sobering as we started to rattle off all of the disruptive events that the four of us prepare for. Events that may happen tomorrow or events that may never happen. I began to squirm in my chair as I realized that each of us felt challenged both by the need to keep our preps up (meaning stuff and skills) and the need to live a joyful life. The two, it would seem, do not always mix. We want it to, and most assuredly I write about it, but believing and doing are two different matters altogether. Since then, I have given some thought to coping while living in a world were a disruptive event could turn life upside down. Today I want to throw down gauntlet and tell you that even for me, it is a extremely difficult. And if I am feeling it, you must be too."
"I’m not going to state that this article in completely about preparedness. Nobody likes mosquito bites. Few insects can ruin a pleasant evening outdoors as quickly or completely as mosquitoes. But as a prepper I’m also concern about epidemics. And while mosquitoes cannot transmit blood-borne diseases (like HIV, Ebola or Hepatitis) they can transmit a wide range of other life-threatening diseases:"
"As some of you know, before I was a blogger, I spent many years as a Counterintelligence Agent, training and working with some of the best government agents and Special Forces personnel in the world. Most of that involved either conducting surveillance or counter-surveillance or activities where you had to know how blend in or find people trying to blend in. Over the years, I saw some pretty common mistakes when it comes to doing things that give you away to someone who may be targeting you in situations that you may actually face someday. This post won’t make you into a secret agent, but it may be the one thing that saves your life, whether you find yourself in a short-term natural disaster, are traveling through a foreign country with a high kidnapping rate, or even if some worst-case event happens and you find yourself living in a collapsed society like we’ve seen in several countries around the world."
"Think about all the items you put in your cart at the supermarket or megastore. Do you feel you paid a fair price for that product? If you have questions about a particular item, would you know who you could speak to for answers? Where did those potatoes come from, how old is that carton of eggs, and who is being supported by your hard earned dollars? Chances are, it would be difficult, if not impossible, to get satisfactory answers to those questions. However, when you buy from local farmers, it’s a completely different story. The following are some reasons why you should support your local farmers whenever possible."
"Just before spring arrives, the snow melts, ice disappears, and we start getting multiple days over 32 degrees. You know what that means??? At my house that means it’s Maple Syrup Time, and I’m so glad I learned how to tap maple trees! After living on my current property about 18 years, I realized I had untapped resources right out in my own yard. Really. My maple trees. I could have kicked myself, thinking, “Why didn’t I ever take advantage of this”? So, last year, my friend, Bill, showed me how to do this."
"Supernatural Agriculture is a web site devoted to the inherent spirituality of growing food & medicine in a way that respects the environment of this unique planet we all share. Up until the beginning of 20th century, the ability to survive and thrive on this planet depended on having an intimate relationship with the forces of nature; our global economy was literally fueled by the sun and the process of photosynthesis. We grew most of our food, fiber, fuel and pharmaceuticals. With the exploitation of coal and oil, our lifestyle changed from a carbohydrate based reality to one fueled by hydrocarbons. Survival and security was now in the hands of the oil and banking interests. Instead of the small family farmer, the banks, corporations, and laboratories now grew the food and food-like substances we now get at the local supermarket. Has this change from carbohydrates to hydrocarbons made for a happier and healthier global culture? Has it brought stability and wealth to our lives? This website will attempt to elucidate our experiences living off the grid and growing much of our own food. We believe that we are healthier and happier by being connected to our planet,”Mother Earth”. We hope to inspire others to consider the options and opportunities that come with taking responsibility for our “daily bread”."
"You need to know this number: $18,433. That’s the median amount in a 401(k) savings account, according to a recent report by the Employee Benefit Research Institute. Almost 40 percent of employees have less than $10,000, even as the proportion of companies offering alternatives like defined benefit pensions continues to drop."
