Despite what you often see on TV and in the movies, stockpiling food is not only for those with conspiracy theories or living through a zombie apocalypse. It is now a part of life for those of us who are “what if” people or those with very strict budgets.
Let’s face it: It’s not easy getting by in today’s economy. If we can save a little money on what we need to live by building a stockpile, then that’s
Many gun buyers new to concealed carry are eager to get out on the firing range. That’s great, but some subcompact guns suited for concealed carry are of limited usefulness for extensive practice. Low ammunition capacity and lack of outside-waistband holster and mag pouch choices mean the owner of the tiny gun may have to sit on the sidelines while his friends participate in a defensive pistol class or weekend ma
We live in very volatile times, times that are marked by increasingly horrific weather events, water scarcity, financial instability and in many cases, civil unrest. What does this mean for us? It means we need to live in a state of preparedness. That doesn’t necessarily translate into being a “hardcore prepper,” but rather just being aware and understanding what it means to be prepared.
Of course, when you h
War with the US under Donald Trump is “not just a slogan” and becoming a “practical reality”, a senior Chinese military official has said.
The remarks were published on the People’s Liberation Army website, apparently in response to the aggressive rhetoric towards China from America’s new administration.
They communicated a view from inside the Central Military Commission, which has overall authori
Prepping can easily become an all-encompassing activity, affecting every area of our lives. That’s why many preppers refer to it as a change in lifestyle, and not simply adding something to their already full plates. That actually makes sense, as the attitudes one needs to develop for prepping require looking at life in a different way and establishing a different set of priorities.
The basic concept of prepping
The recent story from USAToday reports Arizona Senator John McCain has come out swinging against President Donald Trump and his new administration soon after McCain won another six-year term in the Senate, his sixth term in office. McCain, who back on December 29th of 2016 was reported to be seeking stronger sanctions against Russia, has also just warned Trump he’ll fight him on his plans of lifting s
HEFLIN, Ala. — A couple is charging that social workers took their newborn the day after he was born because of their alternative lifestyle and religious beliefs.
“They said our view was dangerous,” Christian Holm said of social workers for the Cleburne County, Ala., Department of Human Resources (DHR). “We were just trying to follow the Bible as close as we could and speak for Jesus.”

There is a new fad in Silicon Valley and Wall Street: Some of America’s richest and smartest people have become survivalists.
“Anyone who’s in this community knows people who are worried that America is heading toward something like the Russian Revolution,” hedge fund investor Robert H. Dugger told The New Yorker’s Evan Osnos.
Osnos profiled a wide variety of wealthy people who believe American civilizati
Whether your skin and hair seem lackluster or you are suffering from tummy troubles or your immunity is at an all-time low, pumpkin seeds can come to your rescue. Pumpkin seeds (Cucurbita maxima, Cucurbita pepo) were first discovered by Mexican archaeologists back in 7,000 B.C.

In early December SHTFplan contributor Jeremiah Johnson warned the inauguration was still a long way off and that we should never underestimate a Marxist with an army of oligarchs to lean on. It turns out that Johnson’s warnings were right on target, as we have learned over the last couple of weeks that President Obama and officials in his administration moved feverishly to implement new rules and regulations wit
Asymmetric tactics rely on the idea of fighting smarter, rather than fighting directly, against a larger or more technologically advanced aggressor. It means turning your opponent’s strengths into weaknesses.
For instance, if your opponent relies on the superiority of his tanks and armor, make him fight in the mountains where his armor is useless. If he relies on air superiority, make him sift through a thick can
Are you ready to feed your family by what you grow and raise? If you want to reduce your dependency on the commercial food supply, you better start now. It is important to develop a functional homestead capable of producing enough food to live on before you need it.
Establishing crops, building infrastructure, raising animals and working out the kinks all takes time, and you may have a few less successful years bef
