Gun Control Fail

In the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting, the cries for more gun control are once again spewing from the mouths of activists and liberal politicians looking to cash in on the tragedy. This is not really surprising and certainly nothing new. Hillary Clinton quickly jumped in stating we need to put politics aside ‘and take on the NRA,’ apparently taking Rahm Emmanuel’s advice to ‘never let a crisis go to waste.’ The left for some reason insists on the US adopting policies that have failed in other countries like the UK’s universal healthcare, Spain’s green energy, and yes, gun control. Australia’s massive gun grab has failed, and Mexico’s very restrictive gun laws certainly haven’t led the Cartels to turn in their guns, but rather left the citizens defenseless against them. If history has taught us anything, it’s that it’s much more difficult to oppress an armed populace. Gun control is not about making society safer, it’s about control. Maybe you think the Government doesn’t have enough control over you, I happen to think it is way too bloated, controlling and overbearing.  I heard it said recently that an armed people will not load themselves in boxcars, I have to believe that to be true.

So why is EVERYTHING ‘Racist’ now?

If you’ve been participating in forums or Facebook chatter or even just observing the media: everything is racist. Racist statues, racist police, racist President; why now? Though I believe most that are employing this tactic are far too shallow and uninformed to understand where this tactic came from, they are however following Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. You may or may not be familiar with this book, but both Clinton and Obama are big fans and employed his teachings throughout their lives. No, I think most who use these tactics are simply following the example of those two who they hold in such high regard. If you recall, neither of these individuals would actually debate an issue as it’s too difficult to defend failed ideologies, but rather would mock anyone who held an opposing view.

Rules for Radicals Rule 5:  “Ridicule is mans most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.” Continue reading “So why is EVERYTHING ‘Racist’ now?”

My 2 Cents on the National Anthem Protests

Unless you live in a vacuum I have to assume you’ve seen or at least read about NFL players refusing to stand for the National Anthem in an attempt to protest something. Some say these players are spoiled little brats protesting ‘injustice’ while being paid millions to play a GAME; I agree. Some say that regardless of whether they are right or wrong, they have the right to protest; I agree. However, when is it ok to protest on their employer’s time? I ask you, can you stand up at work and start protesting some perceived ‘injustice’ when you are supposed to be working? I have a sneaky suspicion that you would soon be looking for new employment. Now let’s take it one step further and imagine that your ‘protest’ was visible to the customers; right or wrong, it’s probably safe to say that some of those customers would be upset by your actions and take their business elsewhere. So when we’re talking about the NFL, who is the customer? Is it the owners, coaches, sponsors, and networks; to some extent yes, but the real customer, the real source of income, are the fans. So when you stand up at work and protest your perceived ‘injustice’ in front of the fans, you are likely to see many of those customers take their business elsewhere. Yes, these players can protest anything they like, but protesting in front of the fans is a big mistake and will prove costly in the long run.

As for that Colin Kaepernick guy who apparently started all this drama, he’s unemployed as he should be. Why would any NFL owner sign a trouble maker (whether they agree with him or not) who finished the 2016 season 1-10?

Final word; if you want to protest, fine protest, but do it on your own time.

Flashback: Leftists Call For Harassment of Conservatives Everywhere – Including in Their Own Homes

Following the attempted assassination of several House Republicans I thought you might find this previous post relevant.

The left has a long history of violence, and that violence is escalating on a daily basis. The ‘open-minded’ are so enraged that not everyone thinks like they do that they are once again resorting to violence.  Recently a writer for the ever anti-American Huffington Post spewed out an article (under the header of Queer Voices) entitled ‘To Save America We Must Stop Being Polite And  Immediately Start Raising Hell’ in which he called for the escalation of “our outrage and our anger is a massive way.” He called for the harassment of conservatives everywhere including in their own homes while out of the other side of his mouth claiming that he is not calling for violence like the ‘thuggish behavior of the Trump supporters.’ Wink Wink Nudge Nudge

Left wing protesters

While I certainly support the right of all Americans to participate in peaceful protest, what we are seeing as of late is anything but peaceful. Burning police cars and smashing windows is NOT civil discourse. Let me ask you this, when have you seen conservatives throwing rocks and bottles at the police? When have you seen conservatives physically attack someone because they hold a different point of view? Reminder: it was Barack Obama who said “if they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.” For once I actually agree with Mr. Obama; bring a gun. I am in no way encouraging anyone to go looking for a fight, but I do strongly suggest that you be very aware of your surroundings and prepared to defend yourself and your family should the need arise.

Reasons You Should Be Prepping Now

N Korea

Although they don’t yet (stress yet) have the ability to reach the US with a nuclear weapon, there is some suspicions that their 2 satellites that frequently pass above the US are capable of launching an EMP. This rogue regime continues to develop their nuclear and ballistic missile capabilities with their primary target being the US and our allies.

Iran

The worlds largest exporter of terror is flush with cash thanks to the Obama administration’s ‘gift’ of $11.9 BILLION. Gee, what could go wrong?

Cyber Attacks

We just witnessed the largest known cyberattack in history. This attack appears to have been motivated by greed, but what if this attack had targeted the US electrical grid? Attacks of this type are growing in size and frequency and its logical to think that an attack targeting the grid could at least temporarily put us all in the dark.

ISIS

The terrorist group has taken a beating as of late, but their ability to inspire ‘lone wolf’ attacks in Western countries continues to be a threat.

Antifa

The ‘anti-fascists’ groups that have been causing chaos recently are in reality anti-Capitalism/anti-Free Speech/Anarchists who throw a temper tantrum if anyone dare express an opinion they don’t share.. This group of mask wearing activist snowflakes periodically emerge from their mom’s basement to throw bottles at the police and attack innocent bystanders. Should you encounter a group of these ‘protesters’ your best protection  is to pretend to be a job recruiter – they will undoubtedly maintain a safe distance.

Corrupt Media

If you fail to see the agenda driven bias of the lamestream media by now, I highly doubt you ever will. Regardless of whether you love/hate Trump, can you imagine the damage to the economy, stock markets and the value of the dollar should a corrupt media manage to actually take down a sitting President. The fact that they refuse to accept the results of the election does not give them the right to subvert the will of the people. Can you imagine the chaos in the next election cycle should they actually succeed?

Things happen

The safety and security of your family is your responsibility. The police, fire, Red Cross, FEMA, etc., are all reactionary – they show up after the fact and are often too late to actually be of much help. If you are currently relying on some government agency to bail you out of an emergency situation – you might want to rethink your plan.

Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

Happy preppng!

Trump: 1st President Since Reagan to Speak At NRA Annual Meeting

Bloomberg has announced that President Trump is scheduled to speak to the NRA’s 2017 Leadership Forum on April 28th. Love him or hate him, but Trump is clearly a departure from Washington’s ‘business as usual.’ If you support the 2nd Amendment, which was clearly designed to keep an overbearing government from disarming the public, then Trump is acting in your best interest (at least on this issue.)  

In the November election, we clearly ‘dodged a bullet,’ as Hillary Clinton had repeatedly expressed her bias against guns, gun owners, and has long sought to demonize groups such as the NRA. Trump on the other hand embraced the NRA and it’s supporters and our right to defend ourselves, our families and our liberty. Trump has already reversed Obama’s Social Security gun ban, and Obama’s ban on using lead ammunition on Federal land. Oh, did I forget to mention the nomination and confirmation of a conservative Supreme Court Justice? Thank you sir, may I have another?

Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

Happy prepping!

Hope for the Best, Prepare for the Worst

I know many of my fellow preppers have slowed or even stopped their prepping activities as a result of the November Election; bad idea. The direction of our Government is certain to change, but that doesn’t mean crime will drop, doesn’t mean a financial crisis has been avoided, nor does it mean that there won’t be natural disasters – there will be.

We have a nation as divided as it’s ever been.

We have a national media that has proven to be intentionally misleading.

We have 96 million not in the work force, many who plan to stay that way.

We have left wing hate groups bent on creating havoc in the streets.

We have a National Debt approaching $20 Trillion.

We have race relations at probably the lowest level since the 60’s.

We have a generation of snowflakes unable to face the realities of the world.

We have problems folks.

I too am hopeful for a better tomorrow, but I’m just not willing to bet my life or the lives of my family on it.

Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

Happy prepping!
