Many people start out with just a vague idea that they need to have a little preparedness in their lives. Maybe (like me several years ago) they just suddenly realize that they are completely unprepared for even the most minor disaster or emergency (let alone a major catastrophe!). Take Responsibility Most people don’t want to believe that they will ever have to use survival skills or rely completely on their own preparedness. It’s easy to be complacent when everything seems great. However, the harsh reality is that existing emergency services are ..
Written by Guest Contributor on The Prepper Journal. Growing and maintaining your lawn can take a lot of time and effort, but that doesn’t always have to be the case. With the right tools and knowledge, you’ll be able to improve your lawn with ease. Whether you have to apply fertilizer or plant new grass seeds, this guide will help you tend to your lawn in the most practical manner. Know the Best Conditions While there are various ways to plant grass seeds, they are all affected by the same conditions. Even if you plant them properly, they won’t grow well if the soil has a poor quality. Grass seed will thrive if you prepare a seedbed, which is free from pesky weeds and is adequately tilled and firmed. The seeds need to be surrounded by good soil for seed germination to occur without any problems. Any debris such as twigs and stones should be immediately removed from the area. Likewise, ensure that there are no sizable clumps of soil. However, a soil that is too fine won’t be good i..

There are only three items that I grab every single day when I walk out the front door. My keys get me in and out of my house and car, my phone is a do-all communication device, and my wallet, which is my secondary tool belt. There are, of course, other items that I often carry. Any time I go for walk very early in the morning, I take my tactical flashlight. If I’m not going into work, I’ll take my pocket knife (I work in a school, where knives are frowned on). I have a multi-tool, but I find that I don’t need it often enough to justify carryi..
Feb 28, 2018 230 Views 0 Comments BREAKING: 20 States SUE The Federal Government- Here’s The Reason Why A coalition of 20 states has come together to sue the federal government over Obamacare. The states say that the law is no longer Constitutional and it should be abolished. Without the individual mandate (a provision in the Obamacare law that demanded all Americans buy health insurance that the government deemed acceptable or pay a fine) which has been removed, the law is supposedly unconstitutional. Often called the “teeth” of the Obamacare law, the individual mandate was highly controversial and should have never been shoved down the throats of people anyway. According to Reuters, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel are leading the charge of 20 states standing up to the federal government. The lawsuit said that without the individual mandate, which was eliminated as part of the Republican tax law signed by President Donald Trump in D..

BREAKING: President Trump Sends In FEDS And Makes Over 150 Arrests After Democrat Mayor Threatens Him
This week, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) deportation officers have been conducting targeted immigration enforcement operations in the San Francisco area of responsibility, consistent with federal law and agency policy, to arrest individuals who have violated U.S. immigration laws, despite the Oakland mayor warning of an impending raid. The arrests come in the days after Libby Schaaf, the Democratic mayor of Oakland, posted a press release to Twitter warning constituents in the sanctuary city that “multiple credible sources” told her ICE would be conducting a raid in the Bay Area as soon as Sunday, FOX News reports. Schaaf received swift backlash following her post, with many arguing over the legality of such a warning. “The Oakland mayor’s decision to publicize her suspicions about ICE operations further increased that risk for my officers and alerted criminal aliens — making clear that this reckless decision was based on her..
Feb 28, 2018 109 Views 0 Comments HotelPlanner.com Sticks with NRA, Preserves Discounted Rate for NRA Members HotelPlanner.com CEO Tim Hentschel says his company will stick with the NRA and continue to offer discounts to NRA members. Fox Business quoted Hentschel as he explained that staying with the NRA “is not about politics at all.” Rather, he said, “It’s about classic hospitality and not getting involved in a boycott war.” He added, “I know what it’s like to feel vulnerable and scared. It’s not about me, it’s not about personal beliefs,” he said. “It’s just about the right for businesses to honor contracts. I have a contract, and I will honor it, and I will stand by it.” Hentschel said he has been attacked personally for deciding to honor agreements with the NRA, that people have “accused him of being an out-of-touch, privileged CEO.” He quickly notes that he grew up living out of a car in utter poverty in Los Angeles before being adopted into a family that provided structu..
Written by R. Ann Parris on The Prepper Journal. Preppers sometimes get the impression that spring answers the winter prayers of the hungry. Not always. One of the worst times of year for pre-supermarket temperate-zone humanity wasn’t winter at all. It was spring, all the way into early summer in some cases. If our worlds fail and we return to the agrarian or hunter-gatherer lifestyles of our past, we’re going to find ourselves with the same “Hungry Gap”. However, with some planning and understanding, we can mitigate the effects. Not all arid and incredibly hot climates are immune, either. Many have similar issues; they just cycle around the too-hot-to-grow and monsoon seasons instead of thaw. The Hungry Gap The “Hungry Gap” or “Starving Spring” comes about due to the cycles of nature. Settled agrarians and winter-camp nomads have spent all winter consuming stored foods. Historically, our pantries and pits are getting pretty barren. Our pastures haven’t come back yet, and animal fe..

In fact, regarding disaster response, it was probably the most telling year in modern history. As a recap, we faced devastating hurricanes, civil unrest, a deadly flu virus, the biggest mass shooting ever, and wildfires that threatened massive chunks of California. It was a wild year! I hope you were paying attention. Knowing where the government will show up first in a collapse scenario is of immense importance to everyone. Of course, we would all like to believe there is help on the way during any disaster. There are massive amounts of resources that will be used to assist ailing states and cities, but ..
