This is the first time I’ve ever talked about this subject, but I feel it’s just as important as your physical survival. And that subject is finances. Look if you are short on income your physical survival could be in trouble.
Knowing how to make money and protect your money is critical. Having been on planet earth for longer than most of you I’ve run across and even fallen into some financial traps. One of those financial traps I’ve seen a lot of recently is cryptocurrencies.
Cryptocurrencies are the “in” thing right now and many people are being lured in in order to make a quick buck. I can see it coming now, and a lot of people are really going to get hurt trying to make money with cryptocurrencies.
First of all, they are difficult for the average person to understand. second, it’s really easy to get caught up in all the hype and lose your shirt in the process. They only people that are going to make big money are those selling $3,000 newsletter subscriptions on how to make money in cryptos.
It’s like the days of the California Gold Rush. The people who made the most money in gold were the ones selling shovels, picks, rope, etc. Which brings me to my last point. If you are looking to make some extra money or start a business think of the California Gold Rush analogy.
What could you offer to people who are passionate about something? You don’t have to spend a fortune to start a business. I can think of one right here that has worked quite nicely for quite a few people.
We’ll discuss finances more in the coming days. I feel more people are rather to suffer from a financial meltdown than a zombie apocalypse.
Please Please Please understand this is a simple yet very powerful lesson. Make sure you read every word of this post or you may miss the point. This is an object lesson, and not a point of view.
I rarely talk about politics. People really get riled up over it however sometimes you just have to speak up. Such is the case here.
Take a look at the following Tweet
Some people would delight in that Tweet, others would be furious that she would say something like this. Those who hate President Trump and love the Tweet are more likely to post it on their Facebook timeline so that heir friends may join in on roasting the president.
On the other side, those that dislike Hillary can use the Tweet to show how evil Hillary is and post it on their Facebook timeline to support their claim.
No matter which side of the coin you are on if you posted this Tweet or shared it with someone you would be
Guilty of what you ask? You would be guilty of spreading FAKE NEWS! If you take a look at the bottom right of the Tweet above you will see in very light type created @ Tweeterino.com. That is a site that allows ANYONE to create a fake Tweet using whoever they want as the person who supposedly said something as in the Hillary Tweet above.
Just to let you know I opened an account and created that Tweet in a matter of 2 minutes. I created that fake news Tweet to prove the point ANYONE can say almost ANYTHING and attribute it to almost anyone they want.
Pretty powerful stuff, right? I’ll be the first to admit I probably have fallen for a few fake news Tweets. What all of us need to do is verify our sources. Knowing what you know now you will save yourself some grief and not get so agitated when you see something designed to get you riled up.
Fake news is designed to generate clicks, or views as in the case of so-called news programs. Clicks and views equal advertising dollars for the big corporations or someone trying to make a fast buck.
Bottom line no matter what side of the coin you are on verify the source before passing along anything you think supports your side.
As a senior and veteran I am amused at people who think themselves prepared because they have a bag full of tools they have no clue how to use.
They have the appropriate dress in camo that is neatly pressed in the latest fashion. and you look down and see the designer basketball shoes and the bling that would instantly attract the thief to an easy score.
With the majority we can be assured survival wont occur in the middle of the woods. The people who live in the rural areas are more prepared than most to survive.
The ones they will need be concerned with are the ones from the city who will come in droves and destroy any chance of their survival and ruin the land and its ability to provide for others survival.
The only thing I am sure of is that government is only prepared to serve the people by oppression only.
That is quite clear of the amount of arms and ammo purchased for to arm the various departments in government.
If evidence is needed at the inept abilities of government we need only look at the actions to help the people from the last two major storms in the US.
They had thousands of mobile homes that sat useless while people needed to seek shelter in a stadium and the only things to arrive were people that went door to door to confiscate the guns.
In New York state who was first on the seen the inspectors to take up notices of condemnation. It must be up to us to organize and the primary thought should be to notify the city and county that you will not put up with the gun confiscation.
They have other problems to solve and they need to be at it. Meanwhile to the individual if you think all the gear will save you then buy it for it will get heavy to carry and if it doesn’t provide food and water it is useless.
If you do not know how to use that gun you have you are more a danger to yourself than the one who will take it from you and then take your gear and whatever food you have.
Knowledge weighs nothing and useful information cannot come only from a book. One cannot get the useful skills by sitting watching football and figuring out which teams will have the point advantage or getting the highest score on the video games.
The only way is get up off your dead center and move with your family so that you all will have a chance to stay together because government wont do it for you.
I apologize for my lengthy rant for I have the same problems with family to make them see the value of the actions I wish them to do. Grampa
We think the future is bright for the human race. Sure we have our problems, but we think we will survive. Although we still need to be preparedin the mean time.
From the possible colonization of other worlds to clothes that will automatically clean themselves when you step into sunlight, we count 15 technological advances predicted by wise minds for the future of our species within the next 50 years or so.
If you live in the United States there’s a good chance you own a vehicle of some type. We depend on our cars, and trucks. To some people they are like family.At certain times they have needs just like family. Those needs are called repairs.
Those repairs can be costly, so in order to save you some money we thought it was important to share 25 things most auto mechanics don’t want you to know.
Seems like everyone from religious leaders, scientists, have been giving predictions for the end of the world. They’ve predicted the end of the planet through floods, fires, and comets, and you name it.
The good news is none of those things have happened. Religious leaders have been saying the apocalypse was going to happen for thousands of years.
We thought it would be interesting to take a look at end of the world predictions that never came true.
10 End Of The World Predictions That Never Came True.
In light of the Rapture being postponed, here are 10 other predictions that didn’t herald the end of the world…
Okay, we realize that this will go against the gain of a lot of you. However with so much negative stuff in the news we thought it was time to present another side of the story.
You can find many news stories of people predicting the collapse of the U.S. Dollar, and the fall of America at any minute. Were not saying everything is coming up roses either, as the truth usually rests somewhere in between.
We do think America is still the greatest country on the planet, and that there are many more good people than bad people in this country.
With that said we found 6 great reasons why the U.S. Dollar will continue to survive.
Many people believe that the U.S. is run by the big corporations. That they are the ones pulling all the strings, and are responsible for all the wars, etc. Now if this is true do you really think they want, or would let the U.S. dollar, and country collapse?
If things were truly to go to hell in a hand basket who would be left to buy their stuff? We think the corporate fat cats understand collapse equals no money for them, and will do everything to prevent a total collapse. The stock market runs in cycles, up, down, sideways.
About every 7-8 years there is a major down turn. Which by the way we are due for one in 2015. The stock market and the dollar have always bounced back.
People since the beginning of time have predicted the end of days. Sure at some point it’s going to happen, but it more than likely be a natural global event. We think there are preppers, and survivalists who hope for a collapse. We don’t, we say be prepared, and enjoy your life. Just our opinion.
6 Compelling Reasons Why The U.S. Dollar Will NOT Collapse.
1. Economic Productivity
Among developed nations the U.S. has had the strongest productivity over the last decade. For example, the U.S. averaged 2.2%, Japan 1.6%, U.K. 1.2%, Germany 0.9%, Canada 0.9%, France 0.8%, and Italy flat. When you consider the deflationary trends now at work in emerging markets and other developed nations, Gary believes that U.S. productivity will continue to outperform and help keep the dollar strong.
2. The World’s Largest Economy
The dominant currency is typically found in the world’s largest economy and the U.S. is head-and-shoulders above the rest. As Gary points out, in 2012 U.S. GDP was $15.7 trillion.
The second closest, China, was nearly half the size at $8.2 trillion. If you think China is about to overtake the U.S. in terms of size, Gary says “China would have to grow 12% a year for 20 years to catch up…it’s now down at about 7.5% growth and as the Chinese economy shifts away from being driven by exports…away from infrastructure, away from heavy borrowing, and so on, their growth is going to grow even more slowly.”
3. Deep and Broad Financial Markets
Here, Gary writes, “Internationally, money—especially today when it can be transferred anywhere in a split second—wants to be where the action is.
That requires not only a powerful and large economy but also deep and broad markets in which to invest. Today, the U.S. Treasury market trumps all others in size and, in the eyes of investors…, in safety as witnessed by the mad rush into Treasury bonds in times of recent global trouble.”
Similarly, he states, “American stock market capitalization is four times that of China, Japan or the U.K. and is over three times the Eurozone’s…Almost 50% of Treasuries are held by foreigners but only 9.1% of Japan’s government net debt is owned by non-Japanese. According to the IMF, 62% of the world’s currency reserves are in dollars.
The 24% in euros is down from 29% four years ago. Foreigners so love investing in the U.S. that at the end of 2012, it exceeded U.S. investment abroad by $4.4 trillion, up from $4 trillion a year earlier.”

With interrogation methods being all over the news the past few months we thought it would be appropriate to reveal some of the methods that are being called into question.
Whether they should, or should not be used is a question you’ll have to answer for yourself. The approved methods of interrogation shown in this post are taught by SERE – U.S. Military Training Program (survival, evasion, resistance, escape).
Take a look at them and let us know what you think.
Top 11 Approved Methods of Interrogation. Should They Be Used, Or Banned?
Isolation is the idea that a person should be left entirely without stimulation by another person. When left for the right amount of time in this state, it leads to a deep feeling of anxiety. The KUBARK document (1) states:
“Little is known about the duration of confinement calculated to make a subject shift from anxiety, coupled with a desire for sensory stimuli and human companionship, to a passive, apathetic acceptance of isolation[…]“
The document recommends that the interrogator should determine whether the person being interrogated has been imprisoned in the past, to better judge the amount of solitary time that will have the greatest effect.
2. Sleep Deprivation
The most common method of sleep deprivation is to keep the prisoner awake for several days. When they are finally allowed to fall asleep, they are awakened and interrogated. Ex-Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin describes his experience of this technique when he was a prisoner of the KGB:
“In the head of the interrogated prisoner, a haze begins to form. His spirit is wearied to death, his legs are unsteady, and he has one sole desire: to sleep… Anyone who has experienced this desire knows that not even hunger and thirst are comparable with it.”
As well as leading to hallucinations, sleep deprivation for periods longer than 24 hours can lead to a state of temporary insanity.
3. Sensory Deprivation
In a study on sensory deprivation, 17 paid subjects were placed in a tank-type respirator that blocked all sensory stimulus. The subjects could breath for themselves through open vents. The time limit for staying in the tank was 36 hours. Only 6 of the subjects completed the full time. Four of the eleven who left the study early complained of anxiety and panic.
“The chief effect of […] solitary confinement, is to deprive the subject of many or most of the sights, sounds, tastes, smells, and tactile sensations to which he has grown accustomed”
It is believed that a few hours in this environment is equal to weeks or months of imprisonment in an ordinary cell.
4. Stress Positions
This is posing a detainee in an erect standing position for a period of several hours. No restraints or external devices are used. Variations of this technique include the extension of one’s arms outward to the side.
According to one Army intelligence officer with personal knowledge of these practices, soldiers in the field developed harsher variations of the stress technique. In one position reportedly improvised by soldiers in the field, known as a “short shackle,” detainees are bound at the wrist and ankle with metal or plastic handcuffs and then doubled over with their wrists bound to their ankles, either while lying on the ground or sitting.
Stress positions are commonly used by the U.S. Military. Recruits are often put in stress positions during basic training, the most common being the “front leaning rest”, which is the military term for the pushup positions.
5. Sensory Bombardment
This includes being bombarded with loud noises or music and flashing or bright lights. These methods are designed to overload the senses, interfering with sleep, cognition, and concentration. An Iraqi dissident reported his experience of this form of interrogation technique:
He was made to stand or kneel facing a wall for seven-and-a-half days, hooded, and handcuffed tightly with plastic strips. At the same time a bright light was placed next to his hood whilst distorted music was played.
6. Forced Nudity
Forced nudity is the most common technique used by US forces in Iraq when interrogating prisoners. It involves stripping prisoners in front of other prisoners and forcing them to remain naked for long periods of time.
The technique has also been used on people caught looting or stealing. The effect of this act is to cause great shame.

Here’s what a couple of people had to say about waterboarding. Where do you stand on the issue. Please use the comment section below.
A lot of people are crying that this is torture and unfair. If you really think that way just go ahead and let the evil terrorist fly more planes into our building and while we hollering “foul” how about a few car bombs at our kids schools or on their buses. The people we deal with are evil and are willing to kill us on the drop of a dime. So if grabbing a handful of these bastards and waterboarding them until we get the answers we need to stop any attacks I say go for it.
He lasted 6 seconds, which is actually more than many who can voluntarily end it. There are people who have nightmares for years afterwards by having this demonstration done on them once. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was waterboarded nearly 200 times in secret by people hostile to him, for up to 45 SECONDS or more each time. 1) tell me how this isn’t torture 2) tell me how his confession can be considered believable. 200 waterboardings & I would have admitted to being the mastermind behind 911 too.
If you are worried about where to live when the apocalypse strikes, and you have money, the luxury condos may be the way to go.
The Luxury Survival Condos & doomsday bunkers are built to protect against a catastrophic event while offering privacy and comfort for its residents.
The concept was to design audiovisual systems in each private residence and all public spaces to make residents feel at home.
This bunker has been featured on CNN, NBC News, Discovery Channel, National Geographic Channel, and many more news stations world wide.
How far below the earth’s surface are people willing to go to protect themselves from disaster? The answer: several hundred feet.
It might seem a bit far fetched, but curious minds from the St. Louis area and around the globe are interested in Larry Hall’s “survival condos” — luxury properties designed to withstand everything from nuclear war to a terrorist attack.
The United States is still arguably the strongest nation of earth. However there is one thing that could get rid of 90% of the population without having to come anywhere near the country itself. That one thing is an EMP attack.
An EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) is a quick burst of energy that can completely destroy all of our nations electronics and can be triggered by setting of a nuclear device at high altitude (North Korea has the ability to do this right now).
A solar flare from the sun would accomplish the same thing.. A cyber attack or simple physical assault from a terrorist group could also wipe out our highly vulnerable grid.
If one of these events were to take place we would instantly be sent back to the stone age because all unprotected electronic devices would be fried, and the nations power grid would be down.
These are chilling realities. Judge Jeanine Pirro investigates just how susceptible the nations power grid really is, and the result if such an event were to take place.
If you are in a hurry watch the bottom video first, it’s less than 2 minutes long, but conveys the message quite well. Great reason to begin some kind of preparedness program.
JEANINE PIRRO: “Lights Out: The Danger to US Power Grid” – The EMP Threat Judge Jeanine Pirro investigates the danger posed to Americans’ lives, property, and way of life if an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) attack, a solar flare, or a terrorist attack brings down the US power grid.
In this special program Jeanine Pirro interviews Frank Gaffney, former CIA Director James Woolsey, the Wall Street Journal’s Rebecca Smith, former SEAL Christopher Heben, Andrea Boland, Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD), former Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham and other experts on the threat, the consequences, and the need to secure the grid from attacks and shutdown.
Chairman McCaul Opening Statement at Hearing on Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Threats
Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, delivers an opening statement at a hearing entitled, “Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP): Threat to Critical Infrastructure.”
Two other countries in addition to China have the ability to close down our nation’s power grid along with other vital infrastructure via a cyber attack. This according to the head of the National Security Agency as he spoke to a Congressional panel last month.
If the Chinese, or another country such as Russia were to do this (EMP attack) it would signal a declaration of war on the United States and would most likely be followed by a nuclear attack. Watch the video below for all the details.
There is a new, and very clever carjacking scam that is going on warns The U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command. People are very susceptible to this carjacking scam during the holidays.
However it takes people by total surprise almost anytime, it doesn’t have to be during the holiday season. The way this carjacking scam work on a just about anyone.
When we first heard about it we were stunned. We wanted to pass it along to you so you’re not the next victim.
Please share this with your friends, and family. Here’s how this carjacking scam works according to the The U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command. Make sure to watch the video below after you read the “hook.”
Criminals use the lure of free cash as a distraction. The crime provides crooks a window of opportunity to swoop in and rob an unsuspecting victim of their belongings, including their vehicle.
“What we’ve heard is criminals will place a $100 bill, usually on an individual’s windshield under the wiper blade, and while the victim is distracted and gets out to retrieve the cash, the criminals use the element of surprise to approach the vehicle and rob the victim of their belongings and car,” said Special Agent Mark Kerr, a CID agent with Headquarters, Army CID.
“It’s the perfect distraction during the holiday season, because everyone could use a little extra cash, especially if it’s free.”
Kerr said that should anyone discover money on their vehicle, to quickly move to a safe, public location and to notify law enforcement or security personnel immediately. Lock your doors and do not get out of the vehicle to retrieve it.
Having to replace the transmission in your vehicle can be very expensive. It can cost up to $2,500 depending on what you drive.
Repairing your transmission costs far less if you do it at the first sign of trouble, and could save you from having to replace your transmission. Knowing the following warning signs, and taking action right away will prevent possible major problems.
Don’t hide your head in the sand. Take you vehicle to the repair shop soon as these sign appear.
Here are 7 warning signs that you need a transmission repair. Remember the key is to take action as soon as they appear.
1-Car Shakes When the Gears Shift (for both manual and automatic transmissions)
Normally functioning transmissions keep your ride smooth during gear shifts. Automatic transmissions that shift hard, jerk or shake during a shift change may mean your transmission fluid needs changed or fluid level is low. In manual transmission vehicles, abnormal gear shifts could indicate damaged gear synchros, worn clutches or other, more severe issues.
2-You Can Smell Fluid Burning
Extremely hot transmission fluid has a distinct, acrid smell that does not smell like burning oil but more like burning rubber. Burning transmission fluid indicates a leak that is dripping onto hot engine parts or seriously dirty fluid that needs drained and replaced with new transmission fluid. Running your car with old, contaminated transmission fluid is just as harmful to the engine and transmission as never changing the oil.
3-Noises in Neutral
If you suspect your transmission needs attention, trying putting your car in neutral and listening for unusual whining, groaning or ticking noises. Wear and tear on parts such as bearings or gear teeth often cause noises that indicate a failing transmission.
Healthy transmissions keep your car in one gear until you decide to change the gear. When your transmission “slips”, it may show an RPM of 3500+ or take a long time to coast. Additionally, your vehicle may seem to delay accelerating when you press on the gas, which is an indication that it is not transmitting enough power to the engine’s internal combustion part. Transmission slips could also result from broken or worn out bands.
Ebola is in the news almost daily, however the risk of you contracting Ebola it is very slim. However there are things that you come into contact with only a daily basis that put you at a risk of picking up germs that can make you sick.
We found 6 of the dirtiest, germ infested places that you touch almost daily without giving it a second thought. Click next page below now to continue.
These 6 things you come in contact with daily are germ infested, and nasty. Take a look and remember them next time you’re about to handle these items. Be sure to catch the revealing video on the last page of this post.
1. The kitchen sink.
Your kitchen is way more contaminated than your bathroom, according to research published in 2008 in the Journal of Applied Microbiology.
Yes, seriously! The researchers found that the average kitchen sink harbors about 100,000 bacteria per square centimeter, compared to the average toilet’s 100 bacteria per square centimeter.
And it’s not like the bacteria in the kitchen is less harmful than what you find in the can: “Fecal bacteria in kitchen sinks were in the range of hundreds compared to less than 1 per square centimeter of toilets,” Reynolds said.
There are a few reasons for this: For starters, we clean and disinfect our toilets a lot more often than we do our sinks, Reynolds says. Plus, germs thrive in moist environments (like in a sink drain).
Food prep introduces dangerous bugs like E. coli and salmonella to the equation. Leftover food particles give germs something to feast on.
And then there you are with your (likely) improperly washed hands, turning on and off the faucet, scrubbing dishes, wiping things up — and getting germs everywhere. Yummy.
The solution: The parts of your sink that you should disinfect with much greater frequency: The drain, and the faucet handle. ApartmentTherapy.com offers clear and straightforward step-by-step sink-cleaning instructions, if you don’t know where to begin.
2. That dish sponge, though.
There’s another reason why your kitchen is so filthy: “Your sponge, dishcloth, or common brush you use to wash your dishes … those environments are perfect sites for germs to grow,”
Reynolds said. “Studies at the [University of Arizona] found 60% of home dishcloths tested positive for influenza (around eight samples collected); 32% for MRSA (38 samples collected); 10% for Salmonella; [and] 32% for E. coli,” she said.
Different studies show different percentages, but Reynolds said the evidence is clear: Dishrags in your kitchen are total germ magnets.
And even more troubling is that we often use those towels to “clean” our counters, which means that rather than cleaning up after ourselves, we’re increasing the odds of cross-contamination in the kitchen.
The solution: You can toss your dish-towels in the laundry between each use. You can let them dry out completely between uses, which helps kill off some of the bacteria.
Or (and this is the most effective/easiest thing for people) you can dip your rag in a sink with a dilute bleach solution, Reynolds said. 3. And also the bathroom hand towel.
The same general rules apply here: Germs love moist environments, and thrive on shared towels of any kind (whether in the kitchen or the bathroom).
“If you utilize a shared hand towel in the bathroom, you are likely sharing more than just the towel,” Reynolds said. Sharing things like MRSA, for instance, or the flu virus.
The solution: “Face and hand towels should be single use, dried between use and laundered using the sanitizing cycle on your washing machine,” Reynolds said. 4. Within three to six feet of your toilet.
“When you flush the toilet, studies show it can spray between three and six feet in every direction,” Reynolds says. That means that anything in the splash zone could potentially be contaminated by… whatever you put in the toilet.
“Certainly fecal matter, E. coli, if someone is ill with salmonella infection — anything that can be fecal transmitted can be transmitted form those sprays,” Reynolds said.
The solution: Keep your toothbrush in a drawer or cabinet, and frequently wipe down all surfaces with a disinfecting wipe.
5. That bar of soap.
That bar of soap. “It’s not a sanitizing or disinfecting product, it’s a cleaning product,” Reynolds said. “And cleaners are not intended to kill germs, so they can end up collecting germs.
People don’t really think about that.” And while it may sound ridiculous, you should clean your bar of soap after you use it, Reynolds says. That’s especially true if you share it with people in your household.
The solution: Use liquid soap instead. (Just, uh, remember to disinfect the pump with some regularity). Shown above: Blue Q Liquid Hand Soap, $9.94. 6. In your washing machine.
Prepare yourself for this one: “Most germs are killed in the dryer,” Reynolds said. “So when you’re transferring clean laundry out of your laundry machine, you’re actually touching laundry that’s just covered with fecal matter.”
The solution: Go wash your hands after you transfer the laundry from the washer to the dryer. See the bottom of this post for instructions on how to wash your hands perfectly.
Another thing that’ll help is to wash your clothes on the sanitizing cycle on the washing machine, if possible. Article Source: Buzzfeed.com

Houses come in all shapes and sizes these days. We’ve seen some pretty unique homes, however these homes you’re about to see made out of converted grain silos are some of our favorites.
These grain bin homes would be ideal for off grid living. At the very least we hope they give you some good ideas. We’ve seen all kinds of unique homes, including homes made from shipping containers, and tiny homes.
We really like these converted gain bin homes. They are different to say the least and they have a roomy feel to them Let us know what you think.
Some of us are pretty fond of our cars. To some people their car is like a person. They give them a name, baby them, and take good care of them. Some people even talk to them.
Since we depend on our cars so much, and spend so much time in them we thought it would be fun to lighten up a bit with this post and present 19 amazing car hacks to make your car experience little more enjoyable.
We came across these 19 car hacks and wanted to share them with you. Some of them we hadn’t seen before. If you have some to add please do so in the comment section below. Be sure to check out the videos we’ve included. There’s some great stuff in them.
1. Use toothpaste to shine your headlights
This surprising household staple is very effective in shining headlights. Simply buff the headlight with toothpaste smeared on a soft cloth, and it’ll look brand new in minutes!
2. Cool a car down instantly without turning on the A/C
Your car can feel like an oven on a hot day, particularly if you don’t park in shaded areas. There’s a trick to cooling it down quickly. Roll down one window, and open and close the door on the other side five to six times. The hot air escapes through the door you’re opening and closing, while the cool air enters through the window on the other side. What’s great about this trick is that you’re not wasting any gas by blasting the A/C.
As if you didn’t need another reason to live off grid, however rates as one of the best reasons we’ve seen to go off grid. We can’t think of to many people who actually enjoy living this way.
It’s actually kind of sad that some people are forced to live this way. This short video shows people actually being stuffed into trains just like animals.
Although this takes place in Japan, it could easily happen here in the USA. It makes you think twice about of living in a big city. Some people need to do this to survive, but at some point they’ve got to be thinking there’s a better way to live.
From taking out pirates at sea to taking out Osama… The U.S. Navy SEALs, and Special Forces have been quietly kicking serious ass for some time now. If you’ve ever wanted to know how they do it we’ve found the perfect footage for you.
These guys are simply amazing at what they do. This will make you appreciate what these heroes go through on a daily basis. Special Forces working with Afghan Local Police. The first guy through the door is ALP. His weapon is hit and he turns and runs out the door (look for sparks when rounds hit his weapon).
He is killed when he runs outside (this happens off camera). Insurgents inside the house shoot the ANP Member through holes in the front of the building. The Special Forces soldier neutralizes the threat.
Elon Musk chief executive for Tesla recently warned in a Washington Post article that artificial intelligence could be more dangerous than nuclear weapons.
In a recent speech at the MIT Aeronautics and Astronautics department’s Centennial Symposium Musk called it our “biggest threat”.
This is the Skynet stuff right out of the Terminator movies.
The Washington Post reported that Elon Musk who is the chief executive is quite concerned about the dangers of it. He said we are summoning the demon”.
He’s also had this to say:
I think we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. If I were to guess like what our biggest existential threat is, it’s probably that. So we need to be very careful with the artificial intelligence.
Increasingly scientists think there should be some regulatory oversight maybe at the national and international level, just to make sure that we don’t do something very foolish.
With artificial intelligence we are summoning the demon. In all those stories where there’s the guy with the pentagram and the holy water, it’s like yeah he’s sure he can control the demon. Didn’t work out. To read the full article please go to Washington Post.com
Why Elon Musk Is Comparing Artificial Intelligence To Nukes
This wasn’t widely reported in the mainstream news media, however The Michigan Dept. of Agriculture made the owners of Hill High Dairy, and My Family Co-op to discard 248 gallons of organic milk, and throw away 100 dozen eggs along with fresh cream, butter and cheese.
This came after alleging that they were selling food with no license. The problem with that is their farms are a co-op where people must buy shares to receive their food.
This story just goes to show the lengths the government will go to, to try and prove a point no matter what the cost or misery it may cause. Was this really necessary?
The government-sponsored dump of nearly $5,000 of milk, eggs, butter, and cream from Michigan’s My Family Co-Op yesterday carried a very clear and powerful political message to all Americans: We control your food and we don’t like you buying your food outside the corporate food system.
Every now and then, we are going to remind you of what bad children you are being by taking your food and throwing it in the garbage.
In fact, we are going to do more than remind you, we are going to completely humiliate you by preventing you from even feeding it to farm animals and instead forcing it to be disposed of in a landfill or dumpster.
It’s the same message that was communicated in Minnesota when the regulators seized food from Michael Hartmann and Alvin Schlangen in 2011. And in California in 2010 and 2011, when the regulators twice took food from Rawesome Food Club.
And in Wisconsin in 2010 when the regulators threw blue dye into Vernon Hershberger’s raw milk. And in Florida in 2012, when regulators confiscated $45,000 worth of food going to half a dozen food clubs in that state (described in Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Food Rights), and forced the farmers who produced it to pay $2,000 in dumping fees to have it thrown in a landfill.
And in Oregon in 2011 when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration sought personal legal penalties against Kelli and Anthony Estrella of Estrella Family Creamery for the high crime of feeding condemned cheese to farm animals, as if to say, the humiliation must be complete.
And the message first communicated in Michigan in 2006 when the state confiscated and disposed of $8,000 of raw milk from farmer Richard Hebron (and forced him as well to pay a $1,000 fine). To read the full article go to: TheCompletePatient.com
In this outstanding presentation 84 year old Kitty Werthmann a living survivor of Nazi controlled Austria reveals some startling similarities between the Obama administrations actions and that of the Nazi movement.
Things such as redistribution of wealth, to the nationalization of health care to gun confiscation and other issues. Listen to this wonderful presentation by a person who lived under Nazi Socialist Hitler’s regime.
It is very scary, he nationalized the banks, took over the auto industry, required mandatory youth education and more. It all sounds very familiar.
This should make every American stop and think about what is going on in our country.
These are scary times we live in, and if we don’t recognize the mistakes from the past we will repeat them.
Watch this amazing video of 84 Kitty Werthmann as she reveals many similarities between Nazi controlled Austria, and the Obama administration.
Editors Note: This was an article that we published over a year ago. There was a lot of controversy over it. In light of all the mass shooting going on in the country we decided to re publish it to see what people are now thinking about this. Feel free to comment, this is an open forum. However we ask that no profanity be used in your comments.
Seems Principal Tom Lopez Of Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins, Colorado is in a bit of hot water.
Earlier in the year one of the student members of the “Cultural Arms Club” led the entire student body in an Arabic version of our Pledge of Allegiance, replacing the words “under God” with “under Allah.”
Students were forced to say the pledge of allegiance reciting “one nation under Allah”. Critics of this were called racists of course.
We’re all for tolerance in religion. The question we ask is would the members of the Arab league pledging something along the lines of ´one Arab League under Jesus´ at their next Arab League Summit to promote religious tolerance? Here’s the article:
The principal at Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins, Colorado, is facing a hailstorm of criticism from some very angry parents and residents. The school recites the Pledge of Allegiance weekly, on Mondays.
Last Monday, a member of their “Cultural Arms Club” led the student body in an Arabic version of the pledge, replacing the words “under God” with “under Allah.” Principal Tom Lopez denies any attempt to push an Islamic agenda, saying, “These students love this country. They were not being un-American in trying to do this. They believed they were accentuating the meaning of the words as spoken regularly in English.” Principal Lopez doesn’t make any sense. Speaking unintelligible words in Arabic in some way accentuates their meaning? That is an extremely weak argument in defense of an ill-advised decision. He said the cultural clubs seeks to “destroy the barriers, embrace the cultures” that exist within the high school. That would translate into “destroy the barriers to Islam and embrace it,” correct, Mr. Lopez? The Poudre School District communications director, Danielle Clark, said they understand why parents are upset.
She told Fox News, “We understand not everybody would agree with the students’ choice. We’ve heard there are some who are upset.” Let’s put his into perspective for the feeble-minded Clark and Lopez.
It is not the student’s choice. They do not control the public address system. It was a school choice. Her simplistic defense included a reference to “one” supportive email and a reference to a similar mistake last year which drew controversy when the pledge was recited in Spanish.
Somehow not learning from and expanding upon your previous mistakes is perceived as a viable defense for these educators. An abdication of responsibility is also part of their defense.
Clark attempted to pass the buck of responsibility to the students, saying, “This is a student-initiated and student-led club. There is no school sponsor or adviser. It doesn’t come under the umbrella of the district.” To read the complete article go to: GopTheDailyDose.com
There is a lot of half truths, and misinformation about Ebola by the large news organizations, and the U.S. Administration. What’s really going on is quite a bit worse than we are lead to believe.
We are not being told the truth about Ebola, which is going to make the spread of this disease worse than it needs to be. Here you will see the 5 Big Lies About Ebola That You Need To Know Now. Go to the “next page” link below to see them.

It’s very hard to compress many thousands of years of Middle East history into a 3 minute summary. However, an animator named Nina Paley did a fantastic job with this cartoon that really makes you think.
It’s called “This Land Is Mine”. It shows wars over the lands that a some point were named Israel, Palestine, Canaan and the Levant.
You’ve just got to see this.
If you have a hard time understanding why there are so many problems in the Middle East this amazing cartoon by Nina Paley is a fascinating and succinct history of the Holy Land told in song will help make it easy. This is well worth 3 minutes of you time.
Departed DARPA director and now Google executive Regina Dugan is hyping an “authentication microchip” that can be eaten, that also contains an electronic tattoo that can read your mind.
No this isn’t a script from a Hollywood movie about a futuristic scientific dictatorship. The idea is being sold as trendy and cool!
This pill has a small chip inside of it with a switch. After you eat it stomach acids act as an electrical conduit that gives it power. The switch then goes on and off and makes an 18 bit ECG signal inside your system which makes your entire body your personal ID token.
This thing also has a electronic tattoo which has the ability to read your mind. Watch the video now to see how all this works, and then let us know if you’ll eat it. We’re betting you won’t, but we think a number of younger kids will for no other reason than to tick off their parents.

Microwave ovens are convenient to use for everything from boiling water to cooking your food. If you use microwave ovens this post may make you think twice about ever using it again.
Seems there are a few recent facts courtesy of Dr. Bernard H. Blanc of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and the University Institute for Biochemistry.
These 12 facts will really make you think about ever using your microwave ovens. These facts come from Dr. Bernard H. Blanc of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and the University Institute for Biochemistry.
1. A breakdown of the human “life-energy field” in those who were exposed to microwave ovens while in operation, with side-effects to the human energy field of increasingly longer duration;
2. A degeneration of the cellular voltage parallels during the process of using the apparatus, especially in the blood and lymphatic areas;
3. A degeneration and destabilization of the external energy activated potentials of food utilization within the processes of human metabolism;
4. A degeneration and destabilization of internal cellular membrane potentials while transferring catabolic [metabolic breakdown] processes into the blood serum from the digestive process;
5. Degeneration and circuit breakdowns of electrical nerve impulses within the junction potentials of the cerebrum [the front portion of the brain where thought and higher functions reside];
6. A degeneration and breakdown of nerve electrical circuits and loss of energy field symmetry in the neuroplexuses [nerve centers] both in the front and the rear of the central and autonomic nervous systems;

7. Loss of balance and circuiting of the bioelectric strengths within the ascending reticular activating system [the system which controls the function of consciousness];
8. A long term cumulative loss of vital energies within humans, animals and plants that were located within a 500-meter radius of the operational equipment;
9. Long lasting residual effects of magnetic “deposits” were located throughout the nervous system and lymphatic system;
10. A destabilization and interruption in the production of hormones and maintenance of hormonal balance in males and females;
11. Markedly higher levels of brainwave disturbance in the alpha, theta, and delta wave signal patterns of persons exposed to microwave emission fields, and;
12. Because of this brainwave disturbance, negative psychological effects were noted, including loss of memory, loss of ability to concentrate, suppressed emotional threshold, deceleration of intellective processes, and interruptive sleep episodes in a statistically higher percentage of individuals subjected to continual range emissive field effects of microwave apparatus, either in cooking apparatus or in transmission stations.
