The Best Place for a Survival Retreat

September 29, 2009 - "The Best Place for a Survival Retreat" By Joseph Parish. I am often asked what my opinion is for a successful retreat location. In all honesty I could not really take a guess at a specific location. I can however provide you with a few clues as to what you should look for when making this important decision. Click here

America armed, but guns not necessarily loaded

September 29, 2009 - "America armed, but guns not necessarily loaded" By Mary Foster. Bullet-makers are working around the clock, seven days a week, and still can't keep up with the nation's demand for ammunition. Shooting ranges, gun dealers and bullet manufacturers say they have never seen such shortages. Bullets, especially for handguns, have been scarce for months because gun enthusiasts are stocking up on ammo, in part because they fear President Barack Obama and the Democratic-controlled Congress will pass antigun legislation — even though nothing specific has been proposed and the president last month signed a law allowing people to carry loaded guns in national parks.

Cash less Society Right around the Corner

September 28, 2009 - "Cash less Society Right around the Corner" By Joseph Parish. Someone please pinch me and wake me up! For the life of me I often think that I am living inside a surrealist nightmare. I have seen legislation passed by congress and the senate which I would never have imagined would never happen in America. Unfortunately, I am a living witness to this Orwellian nightmare actually occurring right before our eyes. One such example is President Obama’s health care reform program. Click here

N1H1 Causing much Concern

September 27, 2009 - "N1H1 Causing much Concern" By Joseph Parish. It looked like a scene from one of the apocalyptic movies which usually appear on the big screen, but in reality it was as close as your nearby hospital. It has been reported that the Dell hospital in Texas has been forced to erect and operate from large tents due to the influx of flu patients. Click here

Planning a survival budget

September 25, 2009 - "Planning a survival budget" By Joseph Parish. One of the most frequent complaints that I hear from survivalists and preppers is that they simply do not have the extra cash to properly purchase needed emergency supplies. This is simply an excuse as far as I am concerned. Every one of us can establish a sufficient supply of food and necessities over a period of time if we only plan our budgets accordingly. Click here

Bats as a means of controlling insects

September 24, 20009 - "Bats as a means of controlling insects" By Joseph Parish. Over the years most people have developed a destructive viewpoint regarding bats. These small creatures must be one of the most misunderstood animals within the United States. Much of this confusion results from fictional television and movie productions and general consumer ignorance of the bats themselves. Click here

Dilemma of Pelosi and the Perils of her Warning

September 23, 2009 - "Dilemma of Pelosi and the Perils of her Warning" By Joseph Parish. I was somewhat stunned when I recently listened to Speaker Nancy Pelosi's latest commentary involving American’s abilities to observe their constitutional liberties of free speech. I couldn’t believe my ears when I took note of how she compared the protests of the irritated patriots with the violent anti-gay rallies that San Francisco experienced in the late 70s. She naturally was referring to the assassination of several local San Francisco politicians. Click here

Old Fashion Navajo Fried Bread

September 22, 2009 - "Old Fashion Navajo Fried Bread" By Joseph Parish. It has been said that bread is the staff of life and I for one will not disagree with them. In the event of major disasters or emergency condition it would be highly unlikely that one could obtain loaves of bread at the local grocery store. It is also possible that you may not have electricity in order to bake your own bread. What would you do in this case? Would you go without? Click here

To be Prepared or not that is the question

September 21, 2009 - "To be Prepared or not that is the question" By Joseph Parish. Although there can be no argument towards the value of being properly prepared for any disaster or emergency one has to take a very close look at each scenario as it is being presented. The point I would like to make here is whether a survivalist should be more concerned and prepare for those situations that are more likely to occur rather then those which may or may not ever happen at all. If you were to prepare for the most likely emergency scenario that you can imagine you will probably have most of the equipment and supplies that you would require for the more unlikely crisis.

An Alcohol Stove made from Aluminum Bottles

September 21, 2009 - "An Alcohol Stove made from Aluminum Bottles" There are plenty of aluminum can stove designs out there. This one is different in that it is not made from aluminum cans but rather from aluminum bottles (aluminum beer bottles to be specific) After building a few stoves myself I wanted to design one to address a few shortcomings of other can stoves.

Dollar Tree Spice Rack

September 18, 2009 - "Dollar Tree Spice Rack" By Joseph Parish. We all appreciate the fact that our survival food rations can quickly become pretty boring to consume after an initial period of time. The children will start to push their plates back in disgust while the adults fumble and shift the food around on the dinner plate, hoping they won't notice it's bland taste. Usually the best way to resolve a problem of this sort is the same way that you would with the meals which you prepare in your normal kitchen environment, add spices to them. Click here

What a costly mistake this was

September 16, 2009 - "What a costly mistake this was" By Joseph Parish. I recently chanced upon an interesting assessment of the Obama’s Cash for Clunkers program and the individual got me wondering about the numbers involved in the final figures for the program.

Justice at last Obama’s birth on trial

September 12, 2009 - "Justice at last Obama’s birth on trial" By Joseph Parish. Well folks, it was bound to happen sooner or later. The argument concerning Barack Obama's eligibility to hold the highest political office in our country has final found a court to hear its case. The planned court arguments are scheduled for January 11th and the judge has set the trial for January 26, 2010. Click here

Patriots to storm Washington; target out-of-control spending

September 11, 2009 - "Patriots to storm Washington; target out-of-control spending" By Chelsea Schilling. Just one day after President Obama tries to recapture the initiative in the health-care debate with a speech to a joint session of Congress, thousands of taxpayers plan to storm Washington, D.C., in a three-day event to take their fight against excessive spending, bailouts, growth of big government and soaring deficits to the front door of the U.S. Capitol.

Solar Power Advantages for Survivalists

September 11, 2009 - "Solar Power Advantages for Survivalists" By Joseph Parish. As a survivalist I fully understand that in the event of a major crisis our usual power generating facilities may not be functioning as expected. In that sense, I am continually seeking out additional means by which I can create electrical power on my own. Having this ability to make my own electricity is not only beneficial at my normal home but would serve as a great advantage when it is functional at my distant emergency retreat as well. Click here

Anyone can catch fish for Emergency food

September 10, 2009 - "Anyone can catch fish for Emergency food" By Joseph Parish. When I go fishing I never seem to be able to catch those huge trout’s or bass that you always see in the outdoor magazines but one thing I can guarantee is that I can catch some pan fish. It really doesn’t matter where in America you happen to be there is some sort of pan fish just waiting to be caught. I have fished for them in New Mexico, Texas, New Jersey and Delaware. These small fish are located in every state of the union. Click here

On the value of an emergency dental Kit

September 9, 2009 - "On the value of an emergency dental Kit" By Joseph Parish. Recent trends on the internet survival and preparedness groups today seem to center upon natural disaster preparedness packages or pandemic emergency supply kits, however one hears very little concerning emergency dental supply kits.

Baking Fresh Pumpkin Seeds

September 8, 2009 - "Baking Fresh Pumpkin Seeds" By Joseph Parish. The season is certainly upon us at this time of the year. You would find that there are few foods available that offer such a vast number of uses as the pumpkin. From this useful garden product you can create delightful pumpkin pies, delicious soup or some tasty pumpkin bread. For decoration during the Halloween season you can use it to craft an interesting lantern or use the seeds as a wonderful snack treat. My wife and I did not grow any sort of pie pumpkin this year however a friend was kind enough to provide us with a huge selection to work with. Not being one to waste valuable food we decided to make good use of this produce. Click here

Bug Out Exercise on a Budget

September 7, 2009 - "Bug Out Exercise on a Budget" By Joseph Parish. Every survival conscious family should perform some sort of practice exercise several times per year. This is actually the only way that you will know if you are weak in an area of preparedness. Bugging out before an event occurs is not only a wise decision but essential to ensure your families safety. Click here

Broun warns of dictatorship

September 7, 2009 - "Broun warns of dictatorship" Congressman stays on message - freedom at risk. U.S. Rep. Paul Broun is again raising the specter of Democrats turning the United States into a totalitarian state. Broun, R-Athens, apparently has not changed his belief that President Obama may be a fascist since he made similar remarks in Augusta in November and then in an Associated Press interview.

America: Freedom to Fascism

September 7, 2009 - "America: Freedom to Fascism (WAKE UP CALL!!!)" "The scariest film you'll see this year. It will leave you staggering out of the theatre, slack-jawed and trembling. Makes 'Fahrenheit 9/11' look like 'Bambi.' After watching this movie, your comfy, secure notions about America - and about what it means to be an American - will be forever shattered. Producer/director Aaron Russo and the folks at Cinema Libre Studio deserve to be heralded as heroes of a post-modern New American Revolution. This is shocking stuff. You'll be angry, you'll be disgusted, but you may actually break out in a cold sweat and feel a sickness deep in your gut; I would advise movie theatre managers to hand out vomit bags. You may end up needing one." (Todd David Schwartz, CBS Radio). Click here

Creating Herbal Preparations – Part B

September 6, 2009 - "Creating Herbal Preparations – Part B By Joseph Parish. During our last article on creating herbal preparations we covered such terms as compress, a cream, decoctions, infused oils, simple infusions, macerate, massage oils, and ointments. We covered several samples that could easily serve as the basis for your own creations. The basics are there and you merely need to learn the ins and outs of the herbs themselves. Click here

Parents upset over 'leftist propaganda' video

September 6, 2008 - "Parents upset over 'leftist propaganda' video" By Lisa Schencker. A school principal has apologized for showing a video at an assembly that a politically conservative group leader is calling "radical, leftist propaganda." Children at Eagle Bay Elementary School in Farmington were shown a short video called "I pledge" on Aug. 28. The video opens with an image of President Barack Obama and part of a speech in which he says, "Let us summon a new spirit of patriotism, of responsibility where each of us resolves to pitch in and work harder and look after not only ourselves but each other." The video then features celebrities making pledges about how they will help the president and the world -- and that's where some say the problem lies. Click here

Creating Herbal Preparations – Part A

September 5, 2009 - "Creating Herbal Preparations – Part A" By Joseph Parish. It never hurts to have some knowledge of herbal preparations in the event that your local pharmacy is no longer available. You may be sitting back in your easy chair thinking that it may never happen, however these pharmacies are run by humans like you and I. In the event of an emergency you can rest assured that the people operating your local drug store will be home with their families. Click here

Backup Black Powder

September 4, 2009 - "Backup Black Powder" By Joseph Parish. Let’s be realistic here for a moment and understand an important point concerning our future survival. If we are not properly prepared ahead of time there are simply no way we will be ready in the event of an emergency. We must prepare now for any crisis which may befall us when the infrastructure begins to break down. The preparations that we make now may seem like an endless chore but it certainly beats feeling regretful in the end. Click here

Enough is enough, Harry

September 3, 2009 -"Enough is enough, Harry" By Sherman Fredrick. Sherman Fredrick is certainly the man of the moment. In this newspaper article Mr. Fredrick sets senator Reid in his place when the senator decided to make threats to the newspaper and act as a child. Good job Sherman! Click here

Bartering for ammo and weapons

September 3, 2009 -"Bartering for ammo and weapons" By Joseph Parish. I am a large supporter of having items that could be used for bartering in the event that the times get really bad and our infrastructure bottoms out. I believe some extra food would be advisable as would sufficient supplies of toilet paper and like products. However I find it difficult to even consider the thought of bartering ammo or weapons of any sort. Let’s face it, during the preparation stages I saved and purchased ammo to supply myself and my family for several years at best. While I may have sufficient quantities of ammunition to meet all my needs I would hesitate to supply such things to other people. Click here

Can America end up with Civilian Prison Labor Camps?

September 2, 2009 -"Can America end up with Civilian Prison Labor Camps?" By Joseph Parish. Our American Army units are legally authorized to establish civilian prisoner labor camps on the very lands of military installations that our taxes pay for. These actions are authorized by a little known regulation which permits these acts under the request of the Bureau of Prisons. This regulation is Army Regulation 210-35. This is not a newly established law laid out by the Obama administration but rather one that was defined under the Bush administration when they were expanding the presidential powers during any emergency situation.

Are Ethnic specific Bio-weapons a Reality?

September 1, 2009 - "Are Ethnic specific Bio-weapons a Reality?" By Joseph Parish. What could be the most effective military weapon devised other then an Ethnic specific bio-weapon. At the desire of the federal government such a weapon could provide security and protection for a country without firing a single shot from conventional arms. Do you view this idea as a script for a potential science fiction movie? If so don’t jump to that conclusion so fast. Click here
