While there have been many protests across the nation over the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, most have petered out by now. Only the demonstrations in Berkeley are still ongoing, although they too are finally coming to an end. As I wrote about yesterday, both sides of the conflict have engaged in shortsighted and destructive tactics to achieve their goals. Neither the cops, the protesters, nor the looters, should win a medal for the actions they have taken over the past few days.

After nearly a week of Ebola-free headlines, it looks like it’s back.
A Doctors Without Borders physician just returned to New York City after treating patients in Guinea. He brought the deadly virus home with him.
Dr. Craig Spencer, aged 33, returned to the US 10 days ago. He began to show symptoms on Wednesday, and was put in isolation at Bellevue Hospital this morning. Continue reading “NYC doctor tests positive for Ebola, but “there is no reason for New Yorkers to be alarmed””

Gross mismanagement of the Ebola crisis by CDC and health officials around the country has left many Americans wondering what steps they need to take to prevent getting infected.
Some of the key questions facing concerned citizens revolve around the concepts of self quarantine and social distancing. Continue reading “When Should I Go Into a Full Pandemic Lockdown Mode And Self Quarantine?”
There’s a mysterious phenomenon that keeps happening to alternative media journalists lately, and it seems to be a side effect of Ebola.
Mainstream stories are being removed from the internet without a trace.
The first I heard of this was when a colleague, Mac Slavo, of SHTFplan wrote an article entitled “Disaster Teams Were Notified Months Ago They Would Be Activated in October”. The article was based on a twitter exchange with a large government supplier of emergency response products specializing in “high risk events”. Continue reading “Three Ebola Stories the Mainstream Media Literally Scrubbed From the Internet”
Has the endgame been revealed on the Ebola outbreak?
Two days ago, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told The Canadian Press that it’s “quite conceivable, if not likely” that fast-tracked Ebola vaccines may have to given to entire countries to get the viral outbreak under control (via Modern Healthcare): Continue reading “NIH: ‘We May Have to Vaccinate Whole Countries to Stop Ebola Outbreak’”
A few days ago, on October 2nd, the FedBizOpps.Gov website filed a solicitation for:
Medical Countermeasures for Pandemic Influenza Preparedmess and Response Continue reading “While Ebola Occupies the Public, HHS Prepares For Flu Pandemic That They Forecast Could Kill 60 million People Worldwide”
Usually, when the mainstream media mentions preppers and survivalists, the angle is not flattering. Maybe someone who considers himself a survivalist has committed a heinous crime and is on the loose. Perhaps a prepared family is beaming from the page while sitting in their bunker, hundreds of food buckets in the background and 17 paragraphs of mockery in the article below the photo.
But the possibility of a pandemic changes things, and with the Ebola case in Dallas, Texas, the folks in the mainstream media have a lot of questions for the preparedness community. With only a couple of exceptions, the reports have been a lot more open-minded than usual, if a little lacking in understanding of the preparedness community. Continue reading “The Mainstream Media: Preppers Aren’t So Crazy Anymore”
Thomas Duncan, the first person in the United States who was diagnosed with Ebola, was reported to have died today after succumbing to the virus.
Thomas A. Duncan, who became ill with Ebola after arriving from West Africa in Dallas two weeks ago, succumbed to the virus today (Sunday), reports Reuters. Duncan was fighting for his life at a Dallas hospital on today after his condition worsened to critical, according to the director of the US Centers for Disease Control.
If you’re paying attention, you’ve noticed that the newsfeeds are full of horror stories about Ebola. Right now, most of the concern is focused in the farthest corner of the earth, in a handful of small countries that seem far less civilized than ours. However, if the warnings filtering out of the CDC and the WHO are any indication, Ebola will be coming to our shores. and it could potentially be the worst pandemic the United States has ever faced.
Since the medical community appears to be stymied by the outbreak, it’s up to you to make a plan to protect your family. A new book is out with the information you need to do so: Ebola Survival Handbook: A Collection of Tips, Strategies, and Supply Lists From Some of the World’s Best Preparedness Professionals. Continue reading “Ebola Survival Handbook: The Book You Need to See You Through the Coming Pandemic”
Recently I wrote about how to break up with your supermarket and it really got me thinking. I like to say that I avoid shopping at the supermarket as much as possible, but is that really true? “As much as possible” is pretty vague. A better way to put it would be “as much as is convenient.”
I went through my pantry and realized, darn it, that we still purchase about 25% of our food at the supermarket. Another 25% or so comes from bulk vendors. The rest is stuff we grow or buy from local farmers. So really, as humbling as it is to say this, that can hardly be considered “as much as possible.” Continue reading “Sow Revolution: Join the Grocery Store Rebellion”
Update 11:58, April 12
Bundy has asked the local Sheriff, Douglas GIllespie, to disarm the BLM officials. Cowboys on horseback are preparing to take back the cattle that have been stolen.
In response to fierce public support of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, the Bureau of Land Management has announced that they are withdrawing from the dispute. Continue reading “BLM Surrenders to Bundy and Supporters”
There are literally hundreds of mines in Clark County, Nevada. So many that you have to wonder how the land above doesn’t collapse. 101 of these mines are in the Bunkerville area, and of those 101 mines 58 are in Bureau of Land Management areas. The list of minerals underground in the BLM area mines is impressive. Click on the links to find out more about the minerals.

Let the cover-up begin. Last night at 9:38, the Federal Aviation Commission established a no-fly zone over the Bundy Ranch and a 3 nautical mile area.
No pilots may operate an aircraft in the areas covered by this NOTAM (except as described)

An area just outside of the little town of Bunkerville, Nevada, with a population of around a thousand people, may go down in history. This little spot in the desert may be compared with Lexington, Massachusetts, the site of the “shot heard round the world” – the first shot fired in the American Revolution. Because it looks like the second American Revolution may start there…and soon.
Yesterday, The Daily Sheeple reported that tensions were running high outside of Bunkerville. It seems that the US government, in all of their infinite wisdom, has declared war on a cattle rancher named Cliven Bundy.

If you needed another reason to avoid taking your children down the cereal aisle at the grocery store, here it is: insidious cereal box characters seem to be trying to make eye contact with your kiddos.
While it’s no surprise that marketing techniques like product package design and placement in stores are used to attract buyers, some methods are more exploitative than others. Directing advertising to adults who understand marketing tactics and have the ability to make informed decisions is quite different than employing psychology-based tricks designed to lure innocent kids into brand loyalty. Continue reading “Creepy! Are Cereal Box Characters Designed to Make Eye Contact With Your Children?”
What is the best way to ensure that gun control takes place within a generation?
Forget trying to change the minds of those who already have guns. The best way to do this is to encourage a culture of fear among young people.
And the public school system, with all of its zero tolerance lunacy, is doing just that. They are setting the stage for tyranny. Continue reading “Setting the Stage for Tyranny: Public Schools Deliberately Create a Culture of Fear”

Nobody seems to play good cop, bad cop anymore. It’s gotten to the point where it’s just bad cop, worse cop.
A homeless man camping in the Sandia Foothills in the outskirts of Albuquerque had the misfortune to become the subject of a standoff with the trigger-happy Albuquerque PD. Continue reading “Warning: In Albuquerque the Penalty for “Illegal Camping” is Execution by Cop”
