Why Low-Tech Prepping Is a Better Option for a Long-Term Grid-Down Scenario

With power outages crippling cities across the nation, the potential for a nasty solar flare, and geopolitical tensions, it might be time to revisit your long term power outage plan. This article explains why low-tech prepping is much more affordable and sustainable for those of us without extravagant budgets. This might be stating the obvious, but in the event of an EMP, things will not be the same, no ...Read full article...

Trump – two steps forward, one step back

President Trump’s radical change in rhetoric concerning his foreign policy was accompanied by the bombing of an air base in Cheyrat, and that of an Afghan mountain. The world trembled before the deployment of such force – 59 Tomahawk missiles in Syria and one GBU-4/B3 mega-bomb in Afghanistan. Yet the base in Cheyrat was already operational again the following morning, while the « Mother Of All Bombs » certainly ...Read full article...

If This Is Freedom and Democracy, What Is Tyranny?

“Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is the numbers of people all over the world who have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience… Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world, in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war and cruelty. Our problem is that ...Read full article...

US War on Whistleblowers

Truth-telling in America is endangered. Free and open expression is our most fundamental right, all others threatened without it. Exposing government wrongdoing is courageous and essential. Obama waged war on press freedom and whistleblowing. Trump continues his outrageous agenda. When governments consider truth-telling independent journalists and whistleblowers threats to national security, tyranny replaces freedom. In 2012, the Obama administration declared WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange an enemy of the state, ...Read full article...

The World is once again dragged into War

The White House has finally aligned itself with the Coalition composed of the neo-conservatives around the United Kingdom and a variety of multinational companies. The United States have once again taken up the imperialist policies upon which they decided in 1991, and have reactivated NATO. The rupture with Russia and China was consumated on 12 April 2017. The world is once again on the brink of nuclear war. During ...Read full article...

Why is Nationalism gaining strength in Europe?

The growing social unrest that exists in the European Union (EU) is fueling the rise of the right. The Freedom Party (FPÖ) was about to win the Austrian presidency in 2016, the Party for Freedom (PVV) became the second political force in Holland in March and the National Front’s Marine Le Pen could be the most voted candidate in the first round of the French presidential elections on April ...Read full article...

How to Survive World War 3: Prepping for an Off-Shore Conflict

If an all-out war erupts, it will be like nothing the Earth has seen before. All of our “progress” means that each side now has the weapons at their disposal to destroy their enemy many times over. Because of this, we can’t as readily look back in history to learn how to survive World War 3. Most of the time, when I write an article, it’s based on research ...Read full article...

Korean Peninsula Brinksmanship

For a day at least, Washington and Pyongyang stepped back from the brink. The DPRK refrained from conducting an expected sixth nuclear test, likely postponed, not cancelled. Trump showed restraint by not belligerently reining on North Korea’s Day of the Sun commemorative parade, honoring its founder Kim Il-sung’s 105th birthday. All quiet on the eastern front held on Saturday, fireworks perhaps coming later at a time of Trump’s choosing. ...Read full article...

White House Report Falsely Blames Syria for Using CWs

A declassified White House document falsely accused Syria of the April 4 Kahn Sheikhoun CW attack it had nothing to do with – using fabricated intelligence and other disinformation sources. No verifiable evidence was presented because none exists. Blaming Syria for what happened is a bald-faced lie. Clearly the April 4 incident was a US-sponsored terrorist attack. In briefing reporters yesterday, an unnamed “senior administration official” lied, claiming the ...Read full article...

Is That Armageddon Over The Horizon?

The insouciance of the Western world is extraordinary. It is not only Americans who permit themselves to be brainwashed by CNN, MSNBC, NPR, the New York Times and Washington Post, but also their counterparts in Europe, Canada, Australia, and Japan, who rely on the war propaganda machine that poses as a media. The Western “leaders,” that is, the puppets on the end of the strings pulled by the powerful ...Read full article...

What if Trump had not changed his mind?

The chancelleries and the Press are claiming that President Trump changed his policy and betrayed his electors by accepting the resignation of General Flynn, and then by bombing Chayrat. There are several incoherencies which seem to indicate just the opposite – the US military aggression against Syria may in fact be directed, in the long term, against Washington’s allies. Did Donald Trump, who was elected for his programme promising the ...Read full article...

The Syria Barrel Bomb Hoax

Phony accusations about Syrian use of CWs and barrel bombs are the propaganda equivalent of Saddam’s nonexistent WMDs. Repeated enough gets most people to believe these weapons are being used – to enlist support for escalated war against a sovereign state threatening no one. All wars are based on lies and deception. Truth-telling destroys their justification. Misreporting on Syria’s conflict is some of the worst in memory – willful ...Read full article...

Russia and Iran Threaten Retaliation Against Further US Aggression

Russia and Iran accused Washington of crossing unacceptable red lines in attacking Syria – jointly saying they’ll respond to further US aggression, according to Reuters. A joint statement published by the Ilam al Harbi media outlet said “(w)hat America waged in an aggression on Syria is a crossing of red lines.” “From now on we will respond with force to any aggressor or any breach of red lines from ...Read full article...

What We Know About Syria

The Civil War, the Nerve Gas Attack, The US Bombing…and How It Could All Lead to WW3. Just in case our nation wasn’t divided enough, we now have the actions that were taken in Syria.  Every story has many different facets, so today, you can find the links I’ve collected this week in an effort to figure out what the heck is going on.
