Monday Mania – 8.8.2016

It’s pretty incredible to think that it August already.

Of course, we are also one month closer to the presidential selection. I am honestly in fear for our country. One of the issues that concerns me most as a veteran is how neither Clinton or Trump have any good frame of reference to be the Commander-in-Chief. Obama didn’t either and we all can see how he has treated our military.

At a minimum, consider this account about Hillary Clinton from an Air Force vet who was a Military Working Dog handler:

I’m not Voting for Clinton.

It has nothing to do with her views. It really doesn’t even matter about all the laws she broke.

It’s because She actually talked to me once. Almost a sentence. But first, some background.

Being a K9 handler in the Military I got to do a few details involving Distinguished Visitors. Mostly Generals, DOD Officials, and Secretaries of Defense. I was lucky enough to pull two awesome details. George W Bush, and Obama.

GW looked at me, said “Man, who’d you piss off” high fived me, and continued on. I was climbing down from a catwalk I stood on for 4 hours with nothing but Dust and a radio to keep me company. The radio died early on. It was pretty sweet.

Obama, as he was walking out to his plane in Turkey, said “What the hell kind of dog is that?!” In reference to Suli.

One of my Last details was for Hillary when she was Secretary of State. She was in Turkey for whatever reason. I helped with sweeps of her DV Quarters and staff vehicles. Her words to me? “Get that F****** dog away from me.” Then she turns to her Security Detail and berates them up and down about why that animal was in her quarters. For the next 20 minutes while I sit there waiting to be released she lays into her detail, slamming the door in their faces when she’s done. The Detail lead walks over apologizes and releases me. I apologize to him for getting him in trouble. His words “Happens every day, Brother”

Hillary doesn’t care about anyone but Hillary.

It seems as though we are in one of those situations where a healthy amount of fear is good. These options are not good for America. If we want to make America great again, we need to stand up as Americans and create the changes that need to be made, regardless of how we have to make it happen.

Don’t lose focus on the fact that there are more reasons to be prepared now, then there ever have been before.

I hope y’all have a blessed week!

MY FINDS FOR LAST WEEK:

Judge Kills Gary Johnson’s Attempt to Change Presidential Debate Rules – Everyone thinks Donald Trump is crazy (I’m not saying he’s not!) for saying that the election is rigged. I think he is right (although not for the same reasons) and here is proof that we operate in a system that is not truly interested in the desires of the people, only those who run the system.

Define Your Disaster – This is the perfect first step for any beginning prepper OR someone who got started and may need some refocusing. I would be lying if I said I always have it together. Additionally, as someone who has moved on a regular basis, this could be a great tool for reassessing threats in a new area.

Seven Places Where WW3 Could Start at Any Time – If for no other reason, this is good information to have from a situational awareness perspective. Depending on where you are located in the world, this info could be used to assess the threats that you face in your area.

With Terror and Rape Spreading, “Self-Defense Weapons Permits Hit Record Highs” in Germany – My take away…take your defensive options seriously, defend your rights, and put measures into place before limitations can be placed on you.

AD: Don't waste $$$ on a $300 water filter when there is a more affordable option available!

Now Collapsing Flint Suspends Trash Pick-up: “Stench of Rotting Garbage Permeating Streets” – Stay clear of this public health crisis in Michigan!

Edible Flowers: 42 Varieties to Add to Your Garden – I happen to be a fan of the peppery tones of the nastiertium on my salad.

Lobbyists Woo Potential Freshmen Long Before Election Day – No wonder we have a corrupt system.

ILLINOIS INSTITUTES CHILLING NEW MANDATE FOR SCHOOLS TO TEACH CHILDREN HOW TO SUBMIT TO POLICE

FEDERAL AGENCY SUGGESTS THAT GADSDEN FLAG MAY BE RACIST – Is there nothing better for the federal government to do? I guess the obvious answer is no.

The Big Khan Con – I think that maybe the whole world has gone mad.

Not-So-Monday Mania – 7.20.2016

Welcome to another week of Monday Mania (even though I am a couple of days late)!

I have found that I feel a more urgent need to be prepared for the unexpected as the world seems to continue to de-stabilize. This seems to be the result of many things, but the recent attacks on police officers in Dallas, TX and Baton Rouge, LA is particularly unsettling to me and the fact that there has almost been a #BlackLivesMatter insurgency that has started is even more troubling.

As I watched the initial press conference about the Baton Rouge shootings on Sunday, I think that Sheriff Sid Gautreaux of the East Baton Rouge, LA Sheriff’s Office probably said it best when he said, “This isn’t so much about gun control as it is about what’s in men’s hearts.”

There is a lot of truth in that. Guns have been around for hundreds of years without these types of events happening. Even if guns were illegal, there are still plenty of mass killings that have occurred in history that were carried out without a single firearm.

My bottom line is that it is vital to take the steps to get prepared for troubling times because I am believe they are here, and they will only get worse as time goes by.

I am going to close this out with my tin foil hat on…

Over the last year or so, and as we get closer and closer to the election in November, I have heard more about the idea that martial law will be implemented prior to the presidential election. This would in turn lead to the ability of Barack Obama to remain as the POTUS past the expiration of his second, and final, term in office.

When I first starting hearing this, I honestly did not buy into the idea that this would realistically be a possibility. I did not think that the American people would ever really let this happen. My confession here is that this does not seem like such a stretch anymore.

Here’s why…

There was a prediction that I made before the identity of the Dallas shooter was revealed, it was that the shooter was a military veteran who had deployed in support of the Global War on Terror. My assumption was also that the shooter was black (based on the claim that the goal of the shooter was to kill white police officers).

Insert rant here ↓

I realize that I said black and not African-American. It is just like the fact that I am white and not Anglo-American. Like most Americans, I am not a first generation American. This makes me more American than any specific group or skin color. Therefore, if you would like to lump me into a smaller group than Americans, you will have to probably go with my skin color which is “white.”

If you would like to subcategorize me even further, you can use my religion (Christian), my sexuality (heterosexual), and gender (male). Does that make you feel any better or worse about me? While I may not agree with all the decisions that other people make, you are who you are (just like the next guy or gal, is the next guy or gal) and to make a decision about you without knowing you, is asinine.

I will even take things an additional step further and say that if we chose to treat others how we would like to be treated, we would find ourselves in a much better world. I truly believe that the only reason that racism continues to be a problem in America is because, in some areas, many believe that we still have to put labels on things. But just like I should be shamed if I say all mankind, as opposed to humankind, when addressing all humans (men and women), it should not be so acceptable to address people by their skin color.

Rant complete.

Unfortunately, I was correct with my earlier prediction and assumption about the Dallas shooter.

As the news of the attack on police officers in Baton Rouge, LA spread on Sunday, I found myself thinking that we were going to find out that we would be in the same situation…a shooter that was a military veteran, who served in combat, and was black. Two strikes. I was right again.

As humans, our concern should be for the completely unnecessary loss of anyone’s life, regardless of any set of identifiers. At the same time, we need to look at each situation objectively and not rush to specific conclusions based on the fact that a law enforcement officer felt forced to take a specific action. One that, realistically, they probably would rather have not taken but, like most of us, that officer is going to do what it takes to survive and make it home to their loved ones at the end of the day.

With all of that said, the continued occurrences (of what I would call a “race war”) will do nothing to solve anything. But they could potentially lead to the imposition of martial law. Think about it, if there are continued attacks on law enforcement agencies across the nation, along with everything else that is already going on, would the idea of martial law be so far-fetched? Would it seem unreasonable at that point to empower the military to lock the country down and reduce, if not remove, most of the constitutional rights of the American people?

It doesn’t sound so crazy now, does it?

Hopefully this is a true tin foil hat moment and not a preview into the future.

I hope y’all have a blessed week!

MY FINDS FOR LAST WEEK:

It Hit The Fan, Now What? – I wrote this article as my monthly contribution to Bob Livingston’s Personal Liberty Digest about some of the immediate actions that should be considered following a disaster or emergency.

Bugging Out: Staying Ready for Evacuation – The ability to get out in a few minutes time is a valuable advantage when faced with an immediate need to leave home, work, etc. The absolute last thing that you want to have happen is for an emergency occur and you have to scramble to gather your things and hope you don’t miss anything.

The Rule of Law – This is an interesting look at the rule of law and how it is breaking down right in front of us. Current events of the last week really paint a good picture of how the rule of law does not apply when those in power do not want it to.

Trash Cans – Overlooked Survival Tool for Preppers? – Trash cans are like buckets (only bigger), and the use of buckets in survival and preparedness is almost endless. I found the idea of growing potatoes in a trash can particularly interesting.

AD: This $28 investment will ensure you'll always be able to access fuel if the SHTF

Survival Recipe: How to make Buckaroo Beans with Storage Foods – This recipes sounds pretty good to me but I think that I might change the beans up a little bit, I am not a fan of kidney beans (thanks mom for forcing me to eat them as a child!).

In a post SHTF world, when should I travel, during the day or night? – My personal thought is to travel by day. If the military or law enforcement is on the “other side,” traveling at night will be a bad idea.

Beating The Heat Old-School Southern Summer Style – It’s the middle of summer and I know that we are trying to beat the heat here in the south. If you are looking for ways to deal with the heat, there are a few good tips here, especially if you are without air conditioning.

Bug Out Bag Documents: The Most Important Papers For Surviving – Keeping vital documents with you in your bug out bag is something that requires serious consideration. Be intentional when making the decision on whether to keep these documents in electronic form, paper form, or both.

Bugging Out: Staying Ready for Evacuation – I like this article because it not only addresses the need to remain ready to evacuate, there are a couple of elements to staying ready for an evacuation highlighted that should be a part of your plan.

5 items You Probably Should Not Stock Long Term – While a short list, it is good to know the limitations in storing items like bleach and some medications that are important to emergency preparedness planning.

Should You Pack Emergency Gear While on Vacation? – This is a question that I find myself pondering every time I go out of town. My belief is that there are definitely some preparedness items that should go with you on vacation. A few items that I try to ensure that I always have with me include a small first aid kit, tape (electrical or duct), paracord, extra glasses, some extra clothing, water, and some snacks.

How to Make and Use Pine Pitch – While not something that I have much experience with (other than getting it in my hair and on my clothes as a kid), these are some great uses for a naturally occurring product.

Are You Prepared for Lockdown? How to Stay Safe When Chaos Erupts in America – The need to be able to shelter in place seems to be more important now then it ever has before. Looking into the future, I see the information in this article being very useful.

MORE MADNESS IN THE WORLD:

Marine Officer Under Fire Wants Same Treatment as Hillary Clinton – This makes plenty of sense to me. She wants to be the POTUS and as the Commander-in-Chief, if the treatment she received is acceptable, then the same should be done for anyone in the military. It’s too bad that we already know that will not happen. During my own military career, I have personally seen numerous occurrences of a leader getting different treatment and what often turn out to be more leniency when compared to a subordinate in the same situation.

Students scared of cops on campus force university to take drastic measures during RNC – This is just ridiculous. Really? The students at Case Western are scared that the 300 police officers brought in as additional security for the RNC will be a threat to them? It is thinking like this that has people thinking it is a good idea to ambush and kill police officers.

INTERESTING READING: 

Musings of a Southern Anti-Federalist on the Presidential Election – This is a well-written piece about the current state of the United States, states’ rights, and the system of “creditism.”

That’s a wrap for me this week. As always, I hope that you all have a great week and keep getting ready for tough times. It seems like we get closer every day to something unfortunate coming along.

Monday Mania – 5.16.2016

Monday Mania – 5.16.2016

Welcome to another week of Monday Mania!

I’m starting this week out with an interesting idea that I have been tossing around in my head for a long time.

I have been a guest on a couple of podcasts but I really would like to start one of my own. The thing that has been stopping me is the fact that I would like it to be interactive, meaning at least having one other person to discuss topics with. I would even love it if it became a round table type discussion.

That said, I have no candidates in mind so I would like to open up this opportunity to you all. As readers of the blog here, you probably have a bit of an idea of what I am about. My vision is to do a podcast that is an hour or less, once a week. We can record at a mutually beneficial time (hopefully) like the evening or weekend. I’m game either way!

If I seem like someone you could work with, and this seems like something that you are potentially interested in, please shoot me an email at tom@thepreparedninja.com with the subject “podcast.”

As far as the last week has been, it seems like we are spending a lot of time at my house just trying to get by. It is almost like we never really gain any ground because we are always just spinning our wheels trying to keep up with today.

When the opportunity presents itself, I am determined to adjust my lifestyle to live more intentionally. Instead of living to work, I want to work to live. As long as my basic needs are met and I have a secure foothold on life, why is there a need to do more at work? Unless I am working on my own project, why would I continue to put my health, my family, etc. on the line?

That sounds good right? We will see what happens but I know that I can make it happen. It’s just a matter of how soon I can do so.

Thank you all for your support! I appreciate all of you who continue to read and show an interest in what I do. Even if it is only once in a blue moon. More than anything, I hope that my work at least helps someone become more prepared for a difficult time.

I hope y’all have a blessed week!

-Tom

MY FINDS FOR LAST WEEK:

How to Make Gunpowder the Old Fashioned Way – Definitely a great skill to learn but the process seems to be long and smelly. DO NOT miss out on the download link for the Improvised Munitions Handbook.

Turn a Car Battery Into an Emergency Power Source For the Home – Here is a quick primer on how to use a car battery as an emergency power source. I’m not smart on electricity though so I am not sure how long this will last. If you do know the answer, please leave a comment for us all.

Raw Venezuela: Looter Burned Alive, While “Streets Filled With People Killing Animals For Food” – This is a good example to share with those who don’t necessarily buy into the idea of emergency preparedness.

Monday Mania – 5.9.2016

The internet will not defeat me! Although, I must admit that I have been feeling awfully defeated over the last few weeks with the difficulties I was having here with the site. I was getting whooped by the internet.

I’m back though (seems like this has happened too many times) and ready to get Monday started.

There is nothing too exciting to report from my life at the moment. I am looking at a potential career change. I am praying that God’s Will can see me through this unpredictable time.

I was able to recently purchase a Smith & Wesson M&P22 which I am looking forward to being able to do some plinking with. It was a purchase that was predominantly motivated by the fact that I wanted a small pistol that my kids will be able to safely learn to shoot with.

That’s about it.

I hope y’all have a blessed week!

-Tom

 

MY FINDS FOR LAST WEEK:

Strategies for Dealing with Those Who Aren’t Prepared – This is a subject that cannot be ignored but requires some dedicated thinking? I can’t say for certain because the individual situation may dictate; but, don’t ignore the fact that when everything is at it’s worst, people will do ANYTHING to take care of them and theirs.

20 Reasons Preppers Are Happier Than the Rest of the World – Just being honest here; but, I don’t think too hard about all of the ways that prepping has impacted peoples lives that often. This list of 20 things that make a prepper’s life better is fairly insightful and worth reflecting on.

“Skills That Could Save Your Life”: 25 Forgotten Survival Lessons You Need to Know – In my opinion, skills are the most overlooked component to prepping,

Raise Plants and Fish Together with Aquaponics

Another Look at Faraday Cages – A faraday cage seems to remain a tertiary goal for most preppers, and that is ok. That is an individual choice. What I can tell you is that if you are going to go to the trouble of making one, make sure you do it right. There is little margin for error.

Monday Mania – 4.11.2016

In this weeks edition of Monday Mania: Surviving The Unthinkable – Being Prepared For What Is Coming Will Be The Difference Between Living And Dying, SHTF Skills Every American Needs: “Improvise With What You Have”, How an Attack on America Would Probably Begin: Possible Courses Of Action By Foreign Military Powers, How to Survive Workplace Violence, & 9 More

Monday Mania – 4.11.2016

It has been three weeks since the last Monday Mania and for that I apologize. The timing of things just did not work out very well for me and in terms of priorities, I have selfishly chosen to put my family, my job that pays, and the Carry The Fallen Ruck March that I completed the weekend before last. I hope, and am sure, that you will all understand.

Speaking of my priorities, I want to give you all a heartfelt thank you for your support, both financially and with your thoughts and prayers, for the Carry The Fallen Ruck March. With your support I was able to not only survive, but also raise $760 (my goal was $500) for this extremely worthy cause.

It meant so much to me to get to participate in this event. Not only have I lost someone I consider a friend, and fellow veteran, to suicide, I myself have struggled through the post-war trauma that included bouts with suicidal ideation. I thank God for bringing me through that difficult time in my life.

In terms of how everything else has gone over the last few weeks, things have been going mostly decent. I say that because my oldest son has continued to suffer from increased severity of his Tourette Syndrome, my middle son broke his arm, and all of this is happening in the midst of daily life. I can tell you this much, I could not deal with it all; I don’t know how my wife does it. I am truly blessed to be married to such a wonderful person.

I am hoping this week will go well. My parents are visiting so it has been good to see them and of course my kids are excited to see them (The two younger boys anyway. It’s hard to get a 16 year old excited about anything, at least at our house.). We will see what is to come!

I hope y’all have a blessed week!

-Tom

Surviving The Unthinkable – Being Prepared For What Is Coming Will Be The Difference Between Living And Dying – This may seem like an obvious statement but it is full of truth. Do now and you will have later. Do nothing and you will have nothing.

SHTF Skills Every American Needs: “Improvise With What You Have” – Sometimes it is not about what you have, it’s what you can do with what you find.

How an Attack on America Would Probably Begin: Possible Courses Of Action By Foreign Military Powers – All I have to say is, “Wolverines!” If you are not familiar with the quote, it is from the movie Red Dawn.

How to Survive Workplace Violence – This is not an unheard of thing in America anymore. There is a growing percentage of the population who are disillusioned or so out of touch with reality that they determine that such shootings are an actual solution to something.
