Recently I talked with a fellow Prepper who was positively giddy over the purchase of his new ghillie suit. I held my tongue, for once, but all I could think of was the “10 Ways Your Ghillie Suit Will Get You Killed.” Now, there’s no doubt that in the right hands a Ghillie suit is a phenomenal piece of kit but like many types of military tech, this particular piece of kit is better suited to use within a military campaign than a Preppers storehouse or bug out bag. That may seem like a strange thing for me to say…as I often talk about the use of or adaptation of military techniques or technology to the Prepper’s use, but this is one piece of kit that you should carefully before including in your preparations. If you’re not familiar with the term ‘ […]
Today we add another term to our Newspeak Dictionary. In traditional use the term ‘character assassination’ is used to describe untrue slanderous or libelous comments used to intentionally damage someone’s credibility and reputation. In its modern, Progressive usage the term ‘character assassination’ now includes comments as well as the release of documents, testimony or video which negatively affects the credibility or reputation of someone that our political and media class would rather protect even if the information is true. A recent example of this is when the Race Industry’s attorney representing Michael Brown, the Missouri teen killed by a local law enforcement officer described the release of a store’s surveillance video (a release that wa […]
The only blog I pay to subscribe to, SOFREP is run by a group of Special Operations veterans and features great news stories, (recent) history stories, commentary and analysis. Recently they updated a short article by one of my favorite authors on the site, Blake Miles called ‘It Has Begun’ in which the Green Beret says prep. If you and your family is not prepared for disaster and war, you should really, really, get your head in the game… like yesterday. US Army Special Forces Veteran Blake Miles via Best of SOFREP: It Has Begun… | SOFREP In the article, Miles describes what he feels was our modern Archduke Ferdinand moment and there’s no doubt that the world is devolving a number of anti-American and anti-Western factions with massive economic and increasing mili […]
Gotta love Texas. Texas loves kids enough they feel that they are worth protecting in ways that work better than having one officer on hand who is nothing more than the first victim to any well planned attack. via Texas School District’s Sign Is Almost Sure to Irk the Left: ‘Please Be Aware That the Staff at Argyle ISD Are…’ | TheBlaze.com.
One of the amazing things about new media is the fact that anyone with a ‘voice’ and an internet connection can educate, inform and influence others. These thousands of voices are in some cases overshadowing and often influencing messages presented by the main stream media that are carefully crafted and coordinated in the corridors of power. Weren’t our Founding Fathers prescient to include press freedoms in our First Amendment. You to can join the ranks of citizen journalists by downloading your free press credentials from The Constitution First Amendment Press Association (CFAPA.org). CFAPA provides both free press credentials and an inspiration to use them. Check them out!
Long before the term Infographic came into widespread use the military learned the value of using images to teach skills to young recruits. Many of these manuals, like this M16 Maintenance Infographic (The M16A1 Rifle, Operation & Preventive Maintenance DA Pam 750-30) were written as comic books complete with well endowed women and full on innuendo. Click on the image below to page through the comic/manual. This particular example of Military Pedagogy was published in 1969, long before the military became more preoccupied with political correctness than warfighting but it does have some good information even if a few of the tools described are a little dated. Additionally, check out the list below the graphics for a selection of current AR maintenance tools and supplies… some […]

This Too Will Pass AKA The Ten Cannots You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot help small men by tearing down big men. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot establish security on borrowed money. You cannot build character and courage by taking away men’s initiative and independence. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves. Reverend William J.H. Boetcker (1916) Andrew’s Note: Grumpy G shared this quote with me and I thought it […]
