Category: Perils

A Peril is the exposure to injury, loss, destruction, grave risk, jeopardy or danger. These are the dramatic and terrible things that can bring about The End Of The World As We Know It (TEOTWAWKI)...or maybe just The End Of The World As You Know It (TEOTWAYKI). We're not talking about the end of the world...just dramatic changes from or to the systems that we live within. Systems like our financial, political, natural environment. etc/


Venomous Snakes of North America – Infographic

Today’s Infographic, Venomous Snakes of North America comes to us from www.prepforshtf.com.  It’s a great overview of North America’s Venomous Snakes but I’d add…it’s best to leave snakes alone whether you can identify them or not.

Prepping For Political Risk

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Prepping For Political RiskI’ve said often enough that my close friends are starting to quote me that ‘I refuse to be a refugee.’  That’s easy for me to say as I live far from hurricane and wildfire country, nowhere near a nuclear plant and in a part of the country with a relatively low population density (by coastal standards) but as I read James Wesley Rawles‘ book, The Liberators: A Novel of the Coming Global Collapse a few months ago I began thinking again about prepping for political risk. In the novel, the fifth book in Rawles’ post-crunch, ‘Patriots‘ world the characters find themselves living in territory that was both formerly part of both the U.S. and Canada but the respective national governments have since fallen.  Each character must make their own decision about how to react to the advance of foreign armies and the creation of a new nation…one with radically different values than many of the residents hold. While I refuse to be a refugee during tough times, an economic downturn or following a natural disaster…what about political change?  If I find myself living in a secessionist State promoting morally repugnant policies do I flee to parts unknown?  This is the very situation a number of our ancestors found themselves in a century and a half ago as the secessionist movement tore our country apart.  What if the policies and values of the good old U.S.A. become unrecognizable and morally repugnant to you…how does one prepare for that? I have friends that think our nation is on the road to ruin and have become expatriates and if recent polls are to be believed the majority of our country agrees that we’re on the wrong track so prepping for political risk isn’t just a good idea it’s potentially a matter of life and death?...

The Dangers of Illegitimacy

A more proper title for this article would have been “The Dangers of Perceived Illegitimacy” as often it’s the perception that matters even more than the reality of legitimacy.  An illegitimate government that is perceived as legitimate will wield power as peacefully if not as effectively as a government that is truly legitimate and perceived as such.  Conversely a legitimate government that is perceived as illegitimate will create an atmosphere of civil discord and strife. legitimate: adjective le·git·i·mate \li-ˈji-tə-mət\ : allowed according to rules or laws : real, accepted, or official : fair or reasonable per merriam-webster.com Today in much of the U.S. we find ourselves in a position where there is a camp that increasingly believes our federal government is exercising unconstitutional powers through a variety of mechanisms including executive orders, legislative shenanigans (like the White House failing to submit the Iran Nuclear capitulation ‘Deal’ to the Senate for approval as the Constitution requires for treaties), an activist judiciary, kill lists that include the names of U.S. citizens…likely bad people yet still U.S. Citizens who are assassinated without ‘due process.’  There’s even a subset of this camp that believes that President Obama wasn’t born in the United States and is therefore not eligible to lead the nation.  As to that latter allegation that same camp never alleges that the President’s mother wasn’t a U.S. Citizen which would make him eligible in any case.  Not hearing the same outcry against Senator Ted Cruse who was born in Canada to U.S. Citizens either. As if the perception of federal illegitimacy wasn’t bad enough there’s a different, sizable camp that believes that their state and local governments are illegitimate due to racism, the legacy of slavery or because minority interests are merely protected and not promoted at the expense of other minorities and the majority populace.  In fact as George Will...

Don’t Just Stand By And Watch – Quote

Do something… Hiding, or sitting back, is not going to accomplish anything. And the gunman would’ve been successful if my friend Spencer had not gotten up. So I just want that lesson to be learned going forward, in times of, like, terror like that, please do something. Don’t just stand by and watch. Spencer Stone, U.S. Airman and recipient of France’s Legion d’honneur for taking down a rifle wielding Jihadi on one of France’s high speed trains Source: American train attack heroes awarded France’s highest honor For his warrior spirit and frankly for ignoring DOD policies that tell service members to hide and barricade themselves during an active shooter situation, Airman Stone along with National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos, their longtime friend Anthony Sadler and British businessman Chris Norman are the latest inductees into Prepography‘s Wall of Honor.   FacebookPinterestGoogleRedditTwitterTumblrEmailPrintPocketMoreLinkedInLike this:Like...

Director of National Stupidity

Secretary of State John Kerry says that there is less violence than usual in the world right now. Meanwhile the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, says the opposite, that terrorism is more violent and dangerous than ever. Since Clapper is Director of National Intelligence, maybe Kerry should have the title Director of National Stupidity.

Feast Of Stephen – Quote

So, on this Feast of Stephen, spare a thought not only for the leftovers in the fridge, but for the driven, kidnapped, enslaved, raped, tortured and murdered Christians our sloth and scorn have left to a hell on earth. LTC Ralph Peters via The feast of Stephen: Middle East’s persecuted Christians need our help If you only read one article this week… read Colonel Peter’s piece on the state of Christianity in the Middle East.  If you aren’t familiar with Peters he’s an enlisted soldier turned Military Intelligence officer who left the Army in order be able to write candidly about it.  I was introduced to Peters as a young Captain by one of my military mentors.

Prepping for Riots & Civil Unrest – 10 Tips

As the mainstream media positively salivates over the anticipated civil unrest and rioting that’s expected following the release of the dual Grand Jury investigation and Department of Justice investigations that are expected to exonerate Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, a teenager of African decent we thought it might be a good idea to review tips on prepping for riots and civil unrest.  According to a knowledgeable multi-juristictional law enforcement analyst the law enforcement community is more concerned about the aftermath of the Ferguson shooting information release than any event since 9/11. A riot or period of riots/civil unrest is best avoided and the Prepping for Riots and Civil Unrest tips below should help you avoid or if necessary safely escape a dangerous situation. Avoid:  Riots and protests that could easily become riots are often organized on social media including sites like this one currently being used to organize protests and riots following the release of the results of the Grand Jury investigation into the acts of Officer Wilson.  Sites like these tell you where and in some cases when ‘actions’ will occur.  They tell me what parts of town to avoid like the plague.  If you find yourself in a mob, avoid confrontation…don’t argue, verbally engage or negotiate. Know What Time It Is:  Many planned riots and protests that could easily become riots happen in the first few hours and days after the precipitating event.  Keep an eye on breaking news that could trigger a riot and go out of your way to return to safe areas or stay out of danger areas entirely if there is a potential precipitating event or planned release of information like the Officer Wilson Grand Jury and Department of Justice investigation results. Stay Calm:  Keep a calm, clear head and don’t get emotionally involved and compromise your...

Cogitation: Hubris Will Kill You!

Cogitation is concerted thought, reflection, meditation, or contemplation. “Cogitation” highlights cognitive ideas that cross our paths. These ideas and thoughts don’t really warrant full articles. They are important enough to be shared as food for thought before forgotten. Cogitation: Hubris Will Kill You! hu·bris: noun \ˈhyü-brəs\ : a great or foolish amount of pride or confidence via Merriam-Webster.com The death of Thomas Eric Duncan, the foreign national who recently passed away in Dallas, becoming the first US ebola death, is raising alarms. What I find even more alarming is the CDC’s, and US administration’s public response to his death and the subsequent infection of not one, but two of his nurses as well as the general threat that Ebola poses to our nation and the world.  At every turn the CDC and administration’s statements have turned out to be untrue, or patently false.  The most glaring examples of this are the following: The threat of Ebola coming to American shores is small:  Less than two weeks later Thomas Eric Duncan was dead in Dallas and several potential cases are being monitored in Dallas, TX,  Atlanta, GA and Kansas City, KS. The threat of others being infected is small:  One of Thomas Eric Duncan’s nurses has contracted Ebola, and his family and those that are around him are being closely monitored and there is a real threat that they have been infected as well. The chances of health care workers becoming infected with Ebola is almost non-existent:  Two nurses in Dallas have been confirmed to have contracted Ebola, with another 70 possibly exposed.  No one is 100% certain is was human error that caused the nurses to get infected, and there are conflicting reports that the virus may have mutated so as to be airborne. At every turn officials have had to back pedal, or “clarify” what they previous meant to say. In at least...

Secretary Clinton’s Marxist Revelation – Quote

Dear Saul When is that new book [Rules for Radicals] coming out—or has it come and I somehow missed the fulfillment of Revelation?
