criminal prepping – prepare for it

Organic Prepper: The Criminalization of Preppers in Turkey: Will Our Country Be Next?, by Aden Tate View Larger Image Originally published on The Organic Prepper and written by my friend Aden Tate, with embedded links to American Partisan. -NCS History has shown us that collectivism detests the individual. The man who can exist independent of the system, who thinks for himself, who is not easily swayed, and who has values rooted in absolute truth which he refuses to give up – this is the enemy of collectivism. But if we take a closer look at one aspect of the individual – his ability to exist independent of the system – is it not clear this is an end goal of […]

the barter/exchange economy

The fiat currencies of the world are all on the last pages of their run. This is no accident, but regardless of cause we get to figure out life in the next phase. For our entire lives we used the USofA dollar to denominate our transactions. Groceries, clothing, energy, labor, housing, luxuries, savings, retirement needs, investments … every transaction and resource decision was measured in dollars. That system is about to seize up. Dystopian books and movies have all shown us how the banksters intend the next phase to look. Your electronic currency will be transacted via subcutaneous RFID, retina scans, facial recognition devices or others. In all cases, the controllers turn off the protagonist’s money supply with the […]

seasoning cast iron cookware

Knowledgeable people run full-speed away from aluminum, teflon-coated and similar cookware that imparts toxins into their food. Cast iron is a well-known, tried-and-true, old-time alternative, but it does require a bit more knowledge and effort to use successfully. The article excerpted and linked below covers nearly all you need to know about successfully using it. I only put the first bit here. Her website deserves a visit. The headline below will take you there and to the full article. – Ted – How to Season Cast Iron Pan (New and Rusty) The logic of seasoning cast iron pan is heating up some oils at a very high temperature in it. The oils would transform into molecules absorbed on the surface […]

clearing the air

For the last few days, the wildfire smoke around here has been rated “UNHEALTHY”. I use the site AirNow to verify. Click the link to see any city. The Montana Department of Environmental Quality and relatives offer this advice: People with heart or lung disease, older adults, children and teens – take any of these steps to reduce your exposure: Avoid strenuous outdoor activities. Keep outdoor activities short. Consider moving physical activities indoors or rescheduling them. Everyone else – take any of these steps to reduce your exposure: Choose less strenuous activities (like walking instead of running) so you don’t breathe as hard. Shorten the amount of time you are active outdoors. Be active outdoors when air quality is better. […]

perfect protective pooch

My puppy is now over two years old. I spent most of that time teaching him to be welcoming and accepting of strangers who approached our home, car or selves. He is a pit/shepherd – both breeds capable of being not good with strangers – and both capable of backing up any animosity with hurtfulness. My job was to raise this puppy into a dog that posed no threat to good people. Numerous UPS and FedEx drivers helped, along with myriad friends and strangers. He “got it”. If my body language said they were good, They Were Good. When I told him they were good, They Were Good. He did no extraneous barking; no aggressive posturing … ever. I […]

canaries, coal mines and toilet paper

A century ago coal miners would take a caged canary down into the mine with them. If the air was not good enough that the miners could breathe for long, the canary would pass out [and die]. Thus the canary in the coal mine communicates a very serious warning. Today cleaning products are rationed in many major retail outlets. Toilet paper is unavailable, extremely high priced or rationed. This is your warning. The toilet paper canary has passed out. Evacuate the mine or prepare to survive an inhospitable environment. The coming shortages will be of every shelf, in every department, of every store. UGLY will be right behind The production and supply chain for toilet paper is what makes […]

What should you do between TEOTWAWKI and TSHTF?

33 Days and counting … My rather new Brighteon Bitterroot Bugler channel is far more popular than my mature BitterrootBugler.com blog or my even more mature IdahoLiberty.com blog. What does that tell me? People would rather watch me talk than read my writing. Beyond that are assumptions and conjecture. However, my response is going to be more concentration on video essays. THE POINT is to communicate as well as I can what I see coming at us. My tiny audience has spoken. I am responding. Here is a video of what I would write about the appropriate response to where we are in space and time. I am operating under the assumption that the numerous looming disasters are going to […]

You have 35 days left in this world

We are between TEOTWAWKI and TSHTF. That is to say that the world as we knew it at the beginning of this year will never come back. It ended. Forever. However the worst is yet to come – in BIG WAYS. Most analysts who have any credibility put the latter date on or around the USofA November election 35 days from now. It could easily be plus or minus a few days, but The Big Ugly is on the visible horizon. Warnings come to us from people studying their own specialties; all are converging in about a month: weather, environment, crop failures and numerous hits that the global food supply chain is suffering global politics, friction and threat of regional […]

priorities in between TEOTWAWKI -and- TSHTF

The End Of The World As We Know It began early this year. You ain’t seen nuthin’ yet. The S*** will probably Hit The Fan before this year is out. Economic collapse, food supply collapse, world war, cultural breakdown, civil war, attempts to force DNA-altering vaccines on many who will resist to the death, physical manifestations of disgust with career politicians … if you have been studying at this website and linked resources, you know a “Perfect Storm” of designed attacks on our way of life are coming our way very soon. Most serious scholars of the various assaults working to establish The New World Order figure it is coming to a head in October or November, with the […]

buying .38 Special ammunition

I heard rumors that guns and ammo were getting hard to buy. I found out recently just how true that is. I expected in the socialist, Marxist, anti-gun meccas that a sudden recognition that we are ultimately responsible for defending ourselves would empty the very few gun and ammo shops that managed to survive in liberal paradises. In my area that is definitely not the case. Here we have more guns than fingernails and more ammo than leg hairs. Nothing the news media sends our way can inspire a gunned-up neighborhood to run out and whimsically purchase a bunch more. However, Montana does have a few enclaves of blind sheep who are having the wool coverings removed from their eyes. […]

wonderful cookies

I shared this recipe on my website over six years ago. I still have not tasted a cookie that approached these really delicious, relative nutritious ones. I remember a road trip where I lived on these for the entire drive from sunrise to sunset. I am hankering to make a batch … well mostly to consume a batch, but the one normally has to precede the other. I notice I do not have any photographs of these jewels. I will return to this post and add the photo after I get a chance to see one. Here is the recipe as I published it in January 2014. Some time back when my metabolism allowed me to make and savor cookies […]

Stone Soup Kitchen

TEOTWAWKI, The End Of The World As We Know It is upon us. We are in the early stages, but the normal we had a year ago will not return in our lifetimes. We had a warning in Spring and have been granted a short reprieve, but it would be foolhardy to squander the next month. Every analysis I read and see indicates The Change will get worse, soon… much, much worse, and frightfully soon. I share much of that at this website and will continue to do so. Meanwhile, most of us agree that we have at least one good month to build our pantries. Few expect supplies to be as plentiful and easily accessed past October. Hardly any […]
