Following a widespread power outage resulting from a wind storm that ripped through western Washington, several news reports read as follows: “A lot of people ventured out from their own dark apartments in search of food only to find that so many of the local restaurants were closed too.” “Gone were the neon lights as blocks and blocks of Capitol Hill clubs and eateries lost power during the storm.” “One shop still had power, and the manager said hungry customers had been pouring in all night.” “I moved into a new unit and just realized my oven doesn’t work,” “I

After 16 months of debate, the Continental Congress, sitting in its temporary capital of York, Pennsylvania, agreed to adopt the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union on November 5th, 1777. Of course, the last of the 13 states, Maryland, took until March 1, 1781 to ratify the agreement.

Also on this day, Charles Dickens published the final installment of A Tale of Two Cities in Dickens’ circular.

Safe Storage of Fuel Do you store Fuel? Gasoline, Diesel, Propane, Kerosene, Camp-Fuel, Alcohol, Fuel-Oils, Acetylene? Are you storing them “Safely and Properly”? Have a look at this perfectly timed photo of an exploding gas can. Probably staged, but still quite impressive to say the least:   Guest Article by NRP Flammable liquids can be one of the most dangerous items anyone can store. Safe storage of gas and other fuels should be a top priority. If stored incorrectly it can lead to explosive disastrous results and even death. Here is an excerpt from the National Fire Protection Association: “In

Guest Article: Shooting Second Amendment Blanks- Part 2, by David M. Zuniga –

Partial List of Our Servants’ Felonies (continued)

Forget the fake “war on terror” and Islamic jihad kindled and reinforced by the CIA. Forget the saber-rattling little fat turd in North Korea, who could be taken out tomorrow by U.S. Special Forces but instead is goaded by the war industry. The truth is: the arrogant organized crime operation known as The Deep State now makes the U.S. Congress the most pressing, potent enemy of these sovereign States and People.

It is long overdue that We The People begin to “execute the Laws of the Union” against this Democrat/Republican machine that:

Invites enemies across our borders to provide cheap labor for its patrons in industry,
Refuses to throttle the lawless courts under its aegis,
Continues to run the largest counterfeiting operation on earth in its concession to the FED cartel,
Continues to operate the largest extortion and payroll-skimming operation on earth in its concession … Continue reading →

Here are JWR’s Recommendations of the Week for various media and tools of interest to SurvivalBlog readers. This week the focus is on the book Basic Survival: A Beginner’s Guide, by David Nash

Books (Basic Survival: A Beginner’s Guide):

A great new book is not officially scheduled for release until November 21st, but the publisher is reportedly already shipping orders: Basic Survival: A Beginner’s Guide, by David Nash. It is highly recommended.  I see that its Amazon overall sales rank jumped from around #200,000 a week ago, to now around #20,800.

This book is the perfect gift for any friends, neighbors, relatives, or co-workers who are new to prepping.  I wrote the book’s Foreword. Full Disclosure:  I was not compensated for writing the Foreword. Nor will I profit from the sales of this book, other than the usual Amazon Associates sales commissions that I earn from links … Continue reading →

A pandemic may incapacitate (and/or terminate) a significant portion of the population. It may cripple our infrastructure due to the lack of people working during the outbreak. It will likely leave you without groceries and other services for the duration (months or longer). If a deadly virus were to infect the population and spread easily from person to person, a pandemic (worldwide outbreak of disease) could begin. No one can predict when a pandemic might occur. Are you ready to self quarantine for 30, 60, 90, 120 days? Re-posted and updated for your information, given the Plague outbreak:   Surviving

(my little pocket folding knife) I ALWAYS carry a pocket knife in my front right pocket, and although I have a variety of folding knives to choose from, the best pocket knife is the one I happen to slip in my pocket each morning (whichever knife that may be). You may be surprised to find out which one I carry more often…   Now don’t laugh. It’s not a ‘Rambo’ knife! It’s a small folder with a blade just shy of 2.5″. I’ve had it for many years and it’s certainly ‘not new’ anymore… In fact it’s getting a bit
