Preppers are a well informed group. There is a serious investigative trait that we all share. We wanna know what’s going on, how it will affect us, and, most importantly, what we can do to mitigate it. That said, the government is very sneaky and might be hiding things from you that you have not considered yet.
Sometimes these things are hiding in plain site and sometimes they are well hidden. Lately, they have just been coming out saying it! But even heinous news can easily be buried in the rapid news cycle.
We are going to look at 4 things the government doesn’t want preppers to know.
The government is currently looking to fill 87,000 positions for additional IRS agents. This was a move that was built into massive spending bills and has been framed in many ways. The hiring of agents would be a measure to back fill for lost positions over the last year. That is the word from the government.
This massive hiring would also allow the government to go after “wealthy tax dodgers” to get all the taxes they are owed.
If you know nothing about the government then you might buy that line. These IRS agents are being hired to focus on crypto and payment methods and tools that are being utilized all over the internet. They wanna know what you pulled from Zelle, PayPal and Square last year and they wanna know how much Litecoin you have.
They are also considering taxing the profits gains on your 401K! So, even when you aren’t conducting transactions to make money, you have to pay a little tax!
The “wealthy tax dodgers” have safe funds that the IRS will never get their hands on. That is how they have earned their name!
They Can Take Your Preps
Now, we are always nervous of things like Martial Law, as preppers. We imagine the legions of armored government agents pulling up and removing all our food storage, at gun point, to “aid” with some far away disaster or war.
This is an old fear of preppers, but it is hardly without merit. The government doesn’t want you to know that they already have the law on the books to come and take, basically, anything they want from you!

It is an Obama era Executive Order – National Defense Resources Preparedness
The language is terrifying, but it is pretty straightforward.
Sec. 801. Definitions. In addition to the definitions in section 702 of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2152, the following definitions apply throughout this order:
(a) “Civil transportation”
– includes movement of persons and property by all modes of transportation in interstate, intrastate, or foreign commerce within the United States, its territories and possessions, and the District of Columbia, and related public storage and warehousing, ports, services, equipment and facilities, such as transportation carrier shop and repair facilities.
– also shall include direction, control, and coordination of civil transportation capacity regardless of ownership.
This section defines actions taken on all equipment and even on your food.
(e) “Food resources”
– means all commodities and products, (simple, mixed, or compound), or complements to such commodities or products, that are capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals, irrespective of other uses to which such commodities or products may be put, at all stages of processing from the raw commodity to the products thereof in vendible form for human or animal consumption. “Food resources” also means potable water packaged in commercially marketable containers, all starches, sugars, vegetable and animal or marine fats and oils, seed, cotton, hemp, and flax fiber, but does not mean any such material after it loses its identity as an agricultural commodity or agricultural product.
The language has been written and the well prepared will be targeted in a national crisis or state of emergency, maybe like the one we have been in for the last year and a half.
The DHS Is Already Targeting You
You may have heard about this bulletin or maybe you didn’t. It was published back in January 2021 but is very clear about the types of threats that the DHS is concerned about. Its hard to believe that we have reached this point.
There is a good chance that you fit at least one of the profiles or sympathize with one of the issues below.
National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin (dhs.gov)
Throughout 2020, Domestic Violent Extremists (DVEs) targeted individuals with opposing views engaged in First Amendment-protected, non-violent protest activity. DVEs motivated by a range of issues, including anger over COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 election results, and police use of force have plotted and on occasion carried out attacks against government facilities.
Their Relationship with Big Tech
I have a serious disdain for the governments approach to National Preparedness Month. I feel like it is a missed opportunity every year to create a culture of preparedness in this nation. However, in 2021 I saw another example of the unholy union between our government and big tech that is used to target preppers.
Related: How This Pandemic Allowed The Government To Track Preppers
The government has concerns about you and your preps and your motivations. They do not like your independence.
You may have noticed a message popping up on Facebook back in September. It was clearly a partnership between big GOV and big TECH. The message showed up on Facebook accounts and was asking users a very simple question:
Are you concerned that someone you know is too prepared?
Why would the leader of the Metaverse, Mark Zuckerberg, care about this? This is one example of many that the government is deeply embedded in big tech and using social media against preppers.
Preppers are interesting members of society. By accruing skills and resources they have also afforded themselves agency. Its liberty in even the worst case scenario. It’s clear that the government wants an OFF switch for the types of behavior that they deem “extremist” or “dangerous” to their agenda.
You might think that governments want to take your money or your right to pursue happiness. Unfortunately, it is much darker than that. The government is after one thing and one thing only. They want to take away your ability to say, ‘No.’
Resistance to the government’s plan to craft your life for you is just not an option in their eyes. Preppers and homesteaders stand in the way of this, and we will always be a target for that.

“The tree of liberty The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants”….
In other words, as it states in the Declaration of Independence (and I admit that I’m paraphrasing), when government becomes tyrannical and oppressive, it is the responsibility of the citizenry to remove that government from power, by any means necessary.
I agree to a part. That is the federal government has gotten too big and is in every aspect of our lives. We have lost our liberty as our founders meant it to be. I prefer a bloodless solution through the convention of states, conventionofstates.com, to rein in the federal government. Unfortunately, there are too many who will not stand with COS and petition for a convention. Even some on this web site.
This nation is at a turning point with so many people, conservative and progressive alike starting to see what has been happening. We as a nation are almost out of time to fix this. If everyone on this blog would just pass on the concept of a convention of states to 10 friends and ask them to do the same, we may not need to heed the exact words of Thomas Jefferson. After all he also noted in his letter to William Smith, that “such acts were often founded by ill-informed groups.”
This is why I try to inform this group and others that the blood of tyrants need not be the manure that feeds the tree of liberty as Thomas Jefferson wrote. He helped give us another solution in the constitution article V convention of states.
Check it out.
Bravo ! I am all in on COS and will continue to press on for such. I too would prefer this to violence which I must admit could very well happen. It is a LAST resort and if things go that way then fighyt like you are already dead. That being said Check out Article V. Time is short but there is still time.
I meant to hit the thumbs up ..sorry 🙂
So hit it Marty. It will change. You only get to vote once. You can also hit the same thumb again to remove you vote. Use it or put it in the trash…your choice, as always. Hope this helps?
” Freedom isn’t free “
The government has backed away from it’s original proposal to have transactions over $600 reported. They received a lot of backlash not only from us commoners but from retail and banking institutions. This doesn’t mean that they won’t try to implementing that proposal again. So much for just tracking the wealthy.
In NYS they are already tracking your transactions for tax purposes.
Always remember Ronald Reagan’s nine most terrifying words:
Ronald Reagan ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’
I was active in CA politics at that time. The emergency legislation that tactical master blackbird refers to was in response to a peaceful, although legally openly armed demonstration in Schitzomento by the Black Panthers. Open warfare had been waged against the Panthers by the Oakland police department. If BLM thinks shootings by cops is bad now, they should have been around in those days.
The legislators pissed in their panties cowering in the capitol building. As soon as the Panthers departed Schitzomento the legislature went into emergency session and drafted and passed the bill to outlaw open carry in the PDRK by almost a unanimous vote. Sure Reagan signed it. In politics you got to know when to fold em. It would have been a meaningless gesture for him to veto the bill and he might have lost the support of weak-kneed repubicans if he had vetoed the bill. It would have been passed over his veto before the ink was dry in his vetoing signature.
Actually at this late date I don’t know if Reagan actually signed it or allowed it to become law. In the PDRK, the goobinator can allow a bill to become law by just not signing it. The goobernator has a certain number of days to veto legislation he doesn’t like. If he does nothing, then the bill automatically becomes law. So Reagan might not have signed the bill to show his disfavor but reading the votes didn’t perform a useless act by vetoing it.
Reagan gets blamed for a lot of things he couldn’t do anything about. You look at the votes and if you see that there are far more than enough on both sides of the aisle, unless it is very a important piece of legislation and unless you figure you can twist enough arms to change the vote, there isn’t jack the chief executive officer can do. If the votes are stacked against him, just like in poker, you have to know when to fold. It doesn’t help to raise when the best you are holding is a pair of deuces and it isn’t a deuces wild game.
the buck stops with whom ever is in…. Regan is anti gun…. so thus regan along with both bush’es and trump all passed massive anti gun laws.
Raven not even George Washington would survive your “Approval Process”.
After all he ordered the Whiskey Rebellion CRUSHED with Federal Troops. The New GOVERMENT NEEDED those Tax Monies. Something about paying for a rebellion or something, perhaps?
AND President Washington allowed a lot of Politically needful or Forced Laws to be passed during his tour as the President. He KNEW he had to lose a few to gain the important laws.
You should open your mind a little to what Left Coast Chuck said, instead of the knee jerk hate drivel.
Have you NEVER had to graciously “Allowed” your wife’s “unwise-foolish” decisions to stand? Maybe later admitted to yourself that “She was RIGHT”?
“Patriots” like to make FUN of the Leftists EATING their Own. We call them “Snowflakes” for melting when things don’t go their way, eh?
Well, We also EAT Our Own. Nobody is politically PURE Enough to please all, let alone the most Vocal Jackals.
We don’t have the Men that created this Republic anymore. Far too easy to Destroy than WORK to Repair-heal.
Sometimes I think a nationwide LIGHTS OUT will all the starvation and disease is better than the “Ethnic Cleansing” aka Bosnia that seem welcomed by the Jackels.
If the Sockpuppets handlers piss off the Russians, enough that may happen SUDDENLY.
Death is better than the evils I’ve seen in the Bosnian civil war.
its funny i fly the whiskey rebellian flag outside my house as a reminder to anyone that asks… Goverment will always betray you and destroy you. That those fools like Washington turned out to be only supported the elite big corperations of whiskey and put the boot to the small guys just trying to make a living ….
you either stand for what’s right or you fail….. and yes i will call out the shitty leadership when they fail. I don’t give them a pass and ignore it…. You seem like a sun shine patriot anyways… Gotta support your guy whom you voted in and never ever….. get upset when they betray you
Raven your level of ignorance astounds me.
You know nothing about me. And THAT I count as a Blessing.
the fact you support the whiskey rebellian shows your ignorance of history. The reason for the fight again was from small whiskey produceres that the gov taxed them out of bussiness and only the rich big corperations could afford the one time tax. … Gee ….. sounds familar to everything that goes on now.
Yes….. your gov will send people with guns to shoot you for not paying taxes.
so if you need to lick the boots then do so
Again, Black Bird of Nonsense your ignorance astounds me.
Back in President Washingtons Day there were NO BIG Corporations, Corporations were an Invention of the 1900’s. Thus, your BS about “smothering the little guys with a one-time tax that Rich Big Corporations could easily pay” is but used toilet paper.
15 minutes of simple online research might give you some real-world facts to blather about.
But DO Keep Digging into that History Book Brain of yours it’s amusing.
I tried showing you respect but like a Butt Hurt Liberal you continue to flail around with random insults, ignoring the other posters thoughts as so you don’t have to strain your brain in rational discussion.
It’s been said to hurt a Rich man you take away his money, to hurt an Idiot you stop responding to them. Unless you choose to reply ADRESSING My Points instead of random insults I shall ignore you.
To the rest of the folks on this list, I am sorry for wasting this much bandwidth on Raven “Tactical Prepper EXPERT”. He has thus far shown only one useful comment as long as I’ve read his postings. The rest is pure unsupported by facts opinions and insults.
people often refuse to accept the guy they voted in… or have some idealistic green history of what’s going on in this world.. I don’t care if i mispelt regan….. he was showing signs of altermizers before his second run and the guy had a personal fortune tellar on speed dial.
He should of stepped down but then again why not have him be the puppet he was in the second tour and ran the country into a mess of bs.
The fact you think its acceptable to “infringe on gun rights because your guy is doing it.: is just a sign of weakness and you will never stand up for anything .
so you want to play word games… Ok when i used the term coperation… i was talking large “WHISKEY producers” Remember the Whiskey rebellian was all due to the two choices of taxes… one a one time fee per year which only the wealthy LARGE companyies could afford and hurt them. but the smaller mom and pop producers couldn’t afford….. or the other fee was per bottle…. which taxed the small mom and pop companies out of bussiness.. So patheltic how after 8 years of fighting a war for freedom…. The elites like washington put the boot on the neck of small bussiness and crush them. All so they won’t be in competition to the bigger companyies.
Well, Raven is right in this discussion.
Politics is the art of, as Red says, “horse-trading” or the words of those engaged in the art, “compromise” where neither side wins but neither side loses either.
I worked in divorce court for a judge who was fond of saying, “If both parties stomp out of court and slam the door on the way out, I figure my orders in that case were pretty fair. If one party doesn’t look pissed off, I want to look st the file again because I figure I missed something if they both don’t hate me.”
That, folks is horse-trading or the art of compromise. Neither side is happy. They both got something but they didn’t get everything they wanted.
We have a legislator here in the PDRK who once represented the district where I live. He recognized early on that this district was making a hard turn to the left and he had little hope of getting elected with his hard line take no prisoners rightest type of politics. He moved to a solidly red county and has not represented that county for his entire tenure in office.
I say NOT represented them although they love his hard line rightest politics. He hasn’t gotten a bill through the legislative body where he serves ever. His take no prisoners, compromise is for sissies attitude toward politics means that members of the other party don’t even talk to him because they know they are wasting breath doing so.
He is totally ineffectual representing his district.
Our gun-rights political action committee in this district had an agreement with a RINO who wasn’t a choice we liked but he was far better than his opponent who was a hard line dem. Where his vote didn’t matter, either the bill was dead or it was a shoe in he would vote in favor of a gun control bill. Where it was a close vote, he would vote against a gun control bill. That wasn’t a perfect solution but it was one we could live with. We worked our asses off going door to door putting up voting signs, extorting money and services ( my printing company printed a lot of literature at my cost so that it didn’t show up as a campaign contribution) and he barely squeaked in in a very liberal district in the PDRK.
When the assault rifle ban was on the agenda the count was very close and our candidate forgot who brung him to the dance and voted in favor of it. It passed by two votes. Had “our candidate” voted against the bill as he promised, the measure would have had a tie vote and it would have died. The next election he lost by a landslide. That shot his political career because his wife really liked the Washington scene and she wanted to be Mrs. Congressman. When he lost and in addition having voted as if he was a demonkraut the repubikans in the state couldn’t remember his name. At least we had a guy whom we knew where he stood. He was anti-gun and a life long demonkraut and remembered who brung him to the dance. I would rather have somebody in office diametrically opposed to my ideas than a snake in the grass like “our candidate”.
Hardliners rarely accomplish anything in any political body regardless of whether one is hard left or hard right. Do any of you think Ocasio has a chance of getting any of her hard communist legislation through Congress? She scares her own party and the only allies she has are a couple other communists who got elected because too many blacks just vote black as opposed to actually looking at the candidate, otherwise we would not have convicted felons re-elected to office. I don’t care if JC himself were running for office, if he had a felony conviction, I would vote for the candidate who had the least possible chance of winning. There is a path a convicted felon can follow in this state to be declared “rehabilitated” and have their felony conviction set aside. It doesn’t involve making a large political contribution to get s goobinator’s pardon either. Of course, one of the provisions that knocks so many out is not having committed any more felonies.
If this disappears I am going to be mightily pissed.
the give and take works in a divorice but…. when you do it with rights and the way people live… its called a crime.
lose your rights one at a time all in the art of appeasing your masters and enjoy it. I wonder why we got where we are at now.
If you could at least learn to spell his name right…attacking President Reagan tells one several things about you without actually having to read your comments. Every time I see your name come up in here I think, dammit, it could have been quite enjoyable otherwise, and the thing is, I think you know that. I get the feeling you’re only in here to create chaos.
people often refuse to accept the guy they voted in… or have some idealistic green history of what’s going on in this world.. I don’t care if i mispelt regan….. he was showing signs of altermizers before his second run and the guy had a personal fortune tellar on speed dial.

raven, you don’t seem very mature in politics. Did you ever hear of horse-trading? That’s politics. That’s called give and take. Reagan allowed some minor things, minor compared to what he wanted and got done. He was never antigun, and was a gun collector. You certainly make a good case for liberals. They still hate him for that and other things.
How about a follow-up on this with “A workaround” for preppers”. There may not be a lot of time for us to act when the government decides to enforce these “Laws”.
Danny work arounds involve that evil 4 letter word WORK. Raven is correct most of us want to talk about it, like talk gets it done.
Become more resilient, replacing the Gov.com systems with your own.
Rule of threes stuff (NOTE None Involve getting into the face of the Raging Elephant’s Face).
If I need to NAME the Elephant then your out of luck (aka clueless).
Grahm’s Killhouse Rules Stuff (Ditto)
1. NOBODY IS COMING TO SAVE YOU. Whether an event lasts a few seconds, a few hours, or even a few days – you have to work as though nobody is coming to save you.
2. You are your savior, so start working because EVERYTHING IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. You are your security, you are your medic, you are your rescuer.
3. You are your own best resource to SAVE WHO NEEDS TO BE SAVED. Nobody wants to save your life more than you, so set yourself up for success by having the simple tools and knowledge to do so: do what you can with what you have. Recognize that nobody is in a better position to start saving your life than you.
4. Look it up. Too many spend ALL their time on this ignoring that starvation, exposure to weather and disease (rule of 3’s stuff) is MORE likely to get you and yours dead.
5. Mostly, ALWAYS BE WORKING. There is always something you can be doing to improve your position. Always. Because nobody is coming to save you.
Yesterday is GONE, Tomorrow is not promised, today is the Gift of the Present. GET BUSY.
This is a collection of the best possible advice I’ve seen. Too many people want “them” to fix things. Only we are responsible for ourselves.
An executive order is not law. But the government does not pay attention even to real laws so it does not much matter. Near as i can tell an EO applies to the Executive Department. And is why an lawful Supreme Court will take down Bidens EO on “mandatory” things related to the “covid.”
Actually, I was surprised to hear that on Wednesday the Supreme Court agreed to hold a special session in roughly two weeks on forced vaccinations. Let’s hope the trump appointees hold to the constitution and present there ruling quickly.
If you mean Judge K, you might want to consider that he trannyed himself as Christine Ford and testified against himself, mocking Jesus.
Transpocalpye Now (Lookalike – Innocent Man Edition), amoung others, did videos on that if you care to be a wellaware1. SCOTUS is just a side show like everything else.
Did you know Judge K is another “man” with no lower eyelashes, just like say … James Hormel? Think they are related or just each just had a bad case of SPAM?
As George Carlin said “It’s a big club and you ain’t in it.”.
william: The Supreme Court ordered Jackson out of the 5 Nations. He laughed at them and sent more soldiers to remove the people. Dems do what they want and the people suffer for it. niio
Tips: leave your smartphone in your car or at home when purchasing your goods, preferably paying with cash.
For gun purchases, an ffl who runs out of a small outfit, even from their home, is a better way to purchase weapons.
Find a retired doctor or nurse in your area. I can’t legally practice medicine, but as an er nurse, I can take care of many issues for my community if shtf.
Unfortunately, that does not work or do much.
Here is something for you to try. At home, shut off your cellphone. Leave it while telling someone who has one on you are going to some place. Then drive your pre-1994 vehicle somewhere else in a 180 degree opposite direction. Then try paying cash. Then drive to another place and try using your debit or credit card.
See if they ask for a photo ID, while paying cash.
The ffl has the 4473 so no matter what they know
not all firearms have a Form 4473 filed, it depends on how and when they were obtained.
The only guns that don’t have a 4473 are private purchases and those …. won’t have much of a trace…. anything from a store or dealer will have the 4473
you move the goal post…. FFL didn’t exist prior to 1968 either …. but lets throw in black powder and air rifles tooo so you’re ok with that as well..
Any gun purhcased after 1968 from a dealer has a 4473 which turned into a registration with the ATF and FBI…
Raven the self-stroker, what goal posts? Is this a football game? And you forgot to mention the 80% and kits, and yes, I’m okay with black powder and air rifles too, some are very good quality.
80 percent isn’t a firearm till you make it into one. most people here don’t even have enough ammo to last a fire fight.
Raven the faux “mind-reader”, how much ammo is needed for a firefight? for some situations some of us we only need one round. So when is your next “class”? How do we sign up? When are you going to loan me $500K so I can get myself set up in a rural location?
you don’t need 500k to live in the country.
and one round is a myth…..
Raven the Pretender, have you never experienced “one shot, one kill”? It’s no myth.
Raven the Hopelessly Ignorant, you may be right, $500K is not enough to do what I need to do, how about bump that up to $1,000,000.00 so I can also establish an orchard, build a 100% environmentally friendly barn, greenhouse, set up a massive solar power system including back-ups for everything, and purchase all the equipment needed to operate and maintain farming and livestock operations. Where do I sign?
why even have a smart phone
Raven the Incompetent Wanna-Be “teacher”, then why do you even access the internet? Defeats the concept of being untraceable. Even if you only use hot-spots in multiple other locations, unless you are constantly on the move and change devices a lot, smart operators can narrow the search down to a smaller and smaller vicinity, and when you use hot-spots, you are likely to be on security video as well.
I know I’m on a least three government “watch lists” and my personal data has been hacked a few times from our government databases by foreign agencies. Even so I will continue to use the internet, my smart phone, credit card transactions, etc., and understand I will be traceable no matter where I go unless I decide to go 100% underground, which I am not willing to do at this time. I don’t think there are very many that even know how to go 100% underground, and even fewer willing to do so unless it becomes required for survival.
I’m still waiting for you to post how we can sign up for your “classes”, or was that just more of your self-aggrandizing BS?
Incorrect Mr. Know-it-all. There were no 4473s before the 1986 GCA. Even in the PDRK back in ‘59 when I bought my first gun in Kallyfornication, the waiting period was 3 days for the gun shop to send a form to the localPD to see if I had a record with them. If no response in 3 days I was good to go. The only records were if the gun store kept a record of his sales and if he did how retrievable they might be really depended on his individual record keeping
When I bought my first rifle in 1953 I don’t know if there was even a record of the transaction other than a cash register tape record of the amount and perhaps the department number. I paid cash — not many people had checking accounts in those days — and walked out of the store with the rifle in a box under my arm.
Kathy, here in “Kalifornication”, even small FFL’s are required to run background checks and submit the 4473’s to the government, so those firearm purchases are still on records accessible to ATF.
I agree it’s good to know some active and retired medical practitioners within your area, including veterinarians, EMT’s, firefighters, law enforcement, and it doesn’t hurt to know a few military types also. If there are any local food producers, it’s good to get to know them also.
Most businesses now have installed security video cameras, even a lot of rural businesses have added them. If you don’t want to be traced for shopping, you need to shut down and remove the batteries from all electronic devices and leave them behind in a functioning Faraday cage, ride a foot pedaled bike, or an ATV or small kickstart motorcycle with no computerized components, to a business you have previously been to and did a serious assessment looking for cameras and found none, including no cameras for all surrounding buildings and businesses, and pay in cash. If the businesses near the one you purchased from has cameras, you are probably on their video as well. Don’t forget there a lot of cameras along streets and roadways as well, so if you are seriously trying to go about totally unobserved, you have to understand how widespread modern surveillance equipment is now being used, including the general public with smart phones and cameras, and avoid it all 100%. Most modern vehicles and smartphones have GPS installed so those can be traced to within the range of cell towers and satellite transmissions that are automatically recorded for both location and date/time and turning off an APP often does not stop the GPS function.
George Orwell’s “Big Brother is watching” is already here and fully active 24/7. I think an updated re-release of “1984” retitled “2024” might be appropriate. We are getting closer all the time, and it’s getting seriously scary.
dz: Let’s see if gruesome newsom tried to check every kali vehicle coming back from AZ.
red, if Gruesom could personally profit from it I’m sure he would, maybe even asking his Wicked Witch of the West Auntie Pelosi to reduce or divert CBP away even more from the drug and human trafficking around Calexico and Mexicali.
I was reminded today that the motion picture Mad Max was set in the year 2021. Perhaps the author’s vision was a little hazy due to too much m.l.
All you folks are living in a make believe world, but I’m ok with that. More oxygen for me.
> Why would the leader of the Metaverse
“because Zuckerberg is a character played by Jacob Michael Greenberg, grandson of David Rockefeller.” The CIA that founded Facebook might care, the actor does not.
The question was a mind game, they already know what you have and where. If you carry a cellphone they known when you are sleeping and if you have been naughty or nice, just like Santa Claws.
The number one thing that the governments of the world do not want preppers to know: we live in an actor based reality and for you to become a wellaware1.
Then all THEIR LSM fear mongering and fake news has no effect and you can see the emperor is naked.
Every event, thing, thought and actions taking place in the USA took place in Germany, China, Russia and everywhere else this agenda has killed massive, (now recorded billions of deaths) numbers of people, for “their own good” is usually how this evil is sold.
Jim: True! Hitler exported elitist communism to Stalin when he helped him wipe out the Bolsheviks, then, according to what I hear, assassinating Trotsky in Mexico with help from Franco, a Nazi. 1944, a half-million SS and Gestapo were smuggled out of Germany. Word is, the lion’s share went to Stalin. He was was also to take their design for the nuclear bomb, but Parron beat him to Ohrdruf, Thuringia, and the scientists.
Stalin sent thousands to Mao to take China. When they found plague labs, Germans stopped him from burning them. Since about 1963, Hong Kong flu, we’ve been hit with a new plague every 2 years. Ebola, which obama tried twice to bring to the US thru medical ‘refugees’ is now thought to be out of Wuhan.
Stalin and Mao spread elitist communism into Asia. Franco sent thousands to Hispanic America. All political movements in Muslim nations had converted to nazism during the war. Nazis were to take over and control, to destroy democracy. Castro was raised and educated by Nazis, as was Guevara. We do live in interesting times. niio
Because Preppers live a little outside of the norms I want to point out something that people should be paying attention to that is inline with stuff the government doesn’t want you to know… You remember around election time last year the plot to kidnap Gretchen Whitmer? That trial may be coming to a head this spring. Search on YouTube for “robert gruler whitmer defense plot” you should see a video with FBI Plot and another video with Motion to Dismiss. I could post the links if asked but don’t want to look like a spammer. The upshot is that there are FBI agents out there working to entrap people who are disgruntled with the direction our country is headed and they will stop at nothing. This is an example of how bad it gets.
Ron, please post links, it really helps others to find the correct information you are referencing. Doing Google or Bing searches often take you to a multitude of links and a lot of those listed are misleading as is intended by the powermongers controlling the media.
Ok, Here goes:
When you get done, I’d like your opinion on how to handle something like this. My thought is you’d take it to your local sheriff and if it really is the FBI then they would reveal their hand to the sheriff and that is when you would insist that the local authorities prosecute. These are agents clearly overstepping their bounds and this needs to be stamped out.
Ron: It was a scam. Hollywood does this for actors when their popularity drops. A few elections ago, dems were getting a powder in the mail that they claimed was anthrax. No one but their investigators were allowed access to it. Yes, the dnc owns the fbi and have for generations. But, this was planned because witmer is so hated they have nothing else to use to get her reelected. niio
well that’s our gov tax dollars at work entraping everyone…
That was four guys who had too much beer. They had to borrow money to buy enough gas to get from wherever they were to wherever the goobinator’s residence was. That was hardly a serious attempt to kidnap her. That was Curly, Mie and two other stooges in a highly drunken state. We used to put people that stupid in special homes where they weren’t allowed scissors, knives or other sharp instruments so they wouldn’t hurt themselves or other people.
Ron, I opened both links to see what they are about, let them run for a few minutes to get the concept, but did not watch the entire videos, have to get ready for work. That said, the FBI and other government agencies, especially within the Dept of Justice, have been concocting and conducting “sting” type operations, even setting them up from scratch if needed, to promote an agenda and/or their careers, and they do not care about morals or legalities when doing these things. What about the illegally obtained FISA warrants? Those are still occurring and the Lame Stream Medea either ignores or supports it, disseminating edited and biased fake news over and over 24/7. What about 06 JAN and all the Antifa and Federal instigators on site 24 hours or more in advance and planted into the crowd? What about the Capital “Police” that moved barricades and opened the doors when the protestors asked them if they could enter the Capitol? These and much more are all documented, much on video, but until the Dept of Justice and the corrupt politicians involved are held accountable, as in investigated, prosecuted, and imprisoned or even executed if found guilty of Treason, as many of them are, then this will continue. This is a Fascist Tyranny in another form right here within the USA. This is not a theory; it really exists and will continue until We the People put a stop to it.
Everyone that had half a brain knew Jan 6th would be a setup….. At least the second go around people figured it out.
They infiltrated your groups or even worse start some and sucker you into joining….. they made articles here and try to trap you in.
The coming new digital finance system will eliminate cash and every penny will be 100% trackable by any fed with a computer.
That’s possible, but most people in the world will ask What’s cash? When I can, I barter. Dems have tried for generations to force us to pay taxes on that and failed. But, the credit cards were a good workout, as well. That’s very simple to track, but most of what is bought via them is ordinary things. Food, gas, pay bills. Anything other than is cash, and as Australia found out, coinage is still popular despite going to plastic money. niio
Love barter, learning how to do it.
Feed my animals, etc.
you’re out of time….
Mix purchases, a little of this, a little of that, things unrelated. niio
Out of time? I remember the propaganda driven “global cooling”, “global warming”, “carbon”, and now the “climate change” agendas for over 50 years now that are all created to incite public panic for power and profit, often with a “doomsday” prediction of a few years to incite more panic. Climate Change is real, but the actual causes are no longer being taught or promoted. Climate Change is part of the Earth’s natural cycles that have been occurring for millions of years before Humans existed and will continue even if Humans become extinct. That did not stop me and millions of other people making preparations for the weather events and other natural disasters like earthquakes we encounter because some immature egotistical ass told us we were “out of time”.
Folks, do you own research and decide for yourselves what is best for you, and understand information on these types of blogs is not screened for accuracy.
Nature usually find a way!
Microbes across the land and ocean are evolving to degrade plastic
If you want the prime example of global warming, contemplate what happened to the glaciers that once extended down to mid-North America, Europe and probably Northern Asia only 14,000 or so years ago. Now that was global warming. Must have been all those campfires the Cro Magnon were using.
LCC: I read Wryheat, a site from Tucson operated by scientists. One thing they and Tony Heller have said time and again, ice cores show that the less CO2, the worse the weather. niio
an interesting article for those interested:
How Justice Is Denied When Prosecutors Go Rogue
dz: Good article. People in places like Baltimore need to think on who were hitler’s most savage soldiers, men he got from prisons. Many were graduates of the Vogel Jungen, a teenage violent gay rights organization founded by Ernst Rohm. The Brownshirts were all his. Rohm was put in charge of the Jungen. hitler said, “I want to raise a generation of young people that will be void of a conscious, relentless, imperious, and cruel.”
“We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions.” –Adolf Hitler
“If there is no God, everything is permissible.” – Fyodor Dostoyevsky
once they got into power all the brown shirts where removed and killed… they where only the useful idiots to cause problems and get them into power….. Once in the “gay brown shirts became…. a issue and removed “
raven: the brownshirts were removed because Rohm was a violent pedophile and they were graduates of his Vogel Jungen. They obeyed him. When Rohm caused too many deaths of wealthy sons, then hitler took down his friend and the brownshirts with him. Yet, most brownshirts were placed in the Gestapo and SS, not killed.
brown shirts…. black shirt.. blm and antia all the same as history repeats itself….
this country has been in socialism from the moment Wilson took Office and now we are full steam into hell.
another good article:
They Are Willing To Kill You
Anything for fun and profit. And they dare call us hatemongers and worse. Shish.
The hiring of additional IRS agents are primarily to balance the books better. Practically everyone knows high earner tax cheats exist.
As far as the Feds coming after your ‘prep’, the man power wasted for a few days, a few weeks, a few months for a family is not worth it. Maybe the focus was more in line with warehouse stockpiles. Otherwise, Fear mongering over small potatoes.
As far as for the ‘Final Word’… too angry! No balance. You seek too much attention. You must be important to yourself.
I agree, but, the dnc wants to know if you spend more than USD 600, and other things, as well. The IRS is how the laws would have been enforced. They’re a club they use on us, to keep us in line. Wealthy tax cheats have no excuse to cheat. Everything seems to be set for them to pay little, a much smaller percentage to the feds than most. It’s interesting now they want to revive an old law where criminals have to pay taxes on what they stole or can have added prison time.
A Happy New Year.
James, I agree the government (Federal, State, and local) does not have the manpower and resources to waste trying to confiscate supplies from average individual families. The same applies to those worried about the military taking over the entire U.S., they do not have the manpower to occupy and control even all the major cities, let alone the entire country.
they won’t need to…. your people will line up to turn in guns for food and safety… Historyically this has happened every time… and the military and police are not on your side.
Especially after they get done kicking out those who refuse getting vaxxed, those who are not politically sensitive and those who are threats to security. That’s one way to solve the overstuffing in most headquarters. Only problem is that what we will be left with are going to be worthless scum. Then we will really have a problem.
dz: Be more concerned over ‘deputized’ neighbors sent to spy and report than anything.
Military, liberal officers, plants by the dnc, are talking about having to stop problems in 2024 like what happened in 2020 (demands for. And mention conservatives, not problems cause by liberals.
red, totally agree, and I do have a couple of “questionable” neighbors I really don’t know and therefore would not trust them with the welfare of my family.
I did taxes as a tax volunteer for seven years and the wealthy don’t cheat any more than the poor. People lie awake night scheming how to get out of paying taxes. It’s been going on since the first tribe bully went around pulling his share off the cooking sticks.
The only difference is the amount involved. By the way, I read that Musk is going to pay 83 billion in aggregate taxes this year. How is that for paying a fair share? He could pay for the repairs to the carrier that got burned up and save a bundle besides.
Raven, just a guess but “your people” will end up malnourished, disease ridden, and paranoid about each other until you fight it out amongst yourselves. I expect your “group” will have a high mortality rate from murder and suicide, but hey, what do I know, I’m just another guy on a blog, just like you. The main difference is the honesty and quality of the information provided, and so far, you fail. Keep up the entertaining BS, it gives the real honest preppers an example of what not to do.
sorry i couldn’t respond much today …. was busy installing the solar backup at the homestead …. have a wonderful time playing prepper
Blackbird of Wisdom SO busy INSTALLING a Solar system you ONLY POSTED 13 times Today.
Timestamps doesn’t lie.
So describe what you had to do to install your “Backup Solar System ” we your adoring followers NEED your help to select and install theirs.
Please explain what you think this System will power .
Describe your experience.
BTW my day was less productive just looked over my garden seeds and supplies while planning my spring planting. My small Solar Electric system produced very little today as it was snowing.
9 pannel 3 arrrays 3k watts….
the lithium battery took a bit to get in the basement weighin in at 700 pounds. Finishing wiring the charge controller and invertor up today. Just going to get the battery cables ordered in. Now that i know where i’ll have the battery located in. Should be enough to power the variable well pump for water , freezer and a few other things that we need.. Pricy but in the long run its going to be nice to have running water .
Raven good you have a stand-alone system. Did you set up a second alternative power circuit or have an electrician install your set up to use existing house wiring?
Wells are hard to power. What voltage requirements did you need 220 AC as normal?
Unsure what a variable well pump is. Odd term. Hopefully you used a Kill-O-Watt to measure actual power uses including Start Up Surge as to spec out your inverter for the task. Older freezers tend to be power hogs needing heavy surge ratings to startup and they cycle many times daily.
Murphy’s Laws says ALL the devices in the circuit will ALL Need Surge Ratings at the same time. Thus, I rate my inverters I install for that.
Hopefully you use very heavy gauge wiring for the batteries to inverter as most of my service calls find folks cheap out there and wonder why the inverter cannot do its job. Gauge depends on the max amp pulled and the distance from batteries to inverter.
I always go by the books in gauge and then step it up one size heaver. Cheaper than replacing an expensive sinewave inverter that gets smoked.
none of this was contracted out…. its been a six month install.
the Variable well will be fine for the system…. It only uses as much as demanded on the system for the well.
its double 00 battery wire so thanks dude… i am good its a decent enough system that will work for what we need. 20 grand but its all good
raven: Excuse me, but, you store the battery series in your house? I’m no electrician, but that’s something I would not do. Stay safe. Put it in an outbuilding.
red, Raven is the “expert” at everything, even if it costs the lives of everyone around him.
Raven they Shyster, “9 pannel 3 arrrays 3k watts” is not enough, but hey, you’re the “expert”.
dz relax, as far a power Needs vs Wants remember Proverb 25 …23As the north wind brings forth rain, so a backbiting tongue brings angry looks. 24Better to live on a corner of the roof than to share a house with a quarrelsome wife. 25Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land.…
Better to have a little in peace than much with anger.
Critical Needs first. Better a little dependable electricity (although subject to sunny days as I look to clear off my solar panels of snow again) than NONE.
Bashing someone who’s screen name is foolishly arrogant might be fun it’s probably a turn off (as much as His Sarcastic Commentaries) to folks who NEED some “Ask a Prepper” advise.
It’s Sunday, a day of rest. Let’s rest a bit and enjoy what pleasures we can today in a good cup of coffee and friendly chatter.
sorry broski i guess after loaning you the 500k for you to come out by us. I couldn’t afford a massibe 30k setup… but 3k in panals with the battery is more then enough for the demand we will be using.. Enough to run water charge and have lights along with the chest freazer..
(no most solar setups the battery is stored indoors… and its lithium so it doesn’t off gas like the wet battery setups.
Go back to your city living and make sure you your boosters
Michael, if I were to buy rural property with intention to set up a permanent self-sustaining homestead, I would want a lot of workable land as well as woodland and have a concrete home build for durability and protection. I lived in concrete homes in two different overseas locations, and they withstood winds up to 150-200 knots from the multiple Typhoons each year and I would expect them to be a better aboveground ballistic shield than other building materials, with the possible exception of large solid logs, but logs are much more vulnerable to fire. I would also want at least two reliable potable water sources such as wells, and large water storage such as cisterns, and/or those tanks on top of towers ranchers often use for their livestock, keeping them refilled using wind powered pumps. I would want to establish food producing operations that include eco-friendly greenhouses with aquaponics, as well as open ground agriculture crops and fruit and nut trees, livestock / poultry operations including barns and other outbuildings needed for support and shelter, and rainwater collection systems. I would want to have at least two LARGE solar power systems with back-ups for everything to supply enough power for everything, including expansion if desired.
Can this be done for even $1,000,000.00? Probably not, and trying to “hack out a living in the wilderness” is a rough way to go and often fatal. My “dream homestead” is quite expansive and expensive. This is why most people may consider options like these but don’t pursue them, they just can’t afford it. If a small plot of a couple acres was a suitable and better option for me, I would already be there.
dz: Your dream home sounds like a plan. Right now, you have a home and are set. We hve cathedral ceilings, but shallow. I’d like to replace part of the south side roof with insulated greenhouse panels to have a greenhouse in the house.
As fer building a house, this style survived the earthquake of 1986, Mexico. niio
red, my extravagant “dream homestead” is just that, wishful thinking at best. Unless I win the Mega-Lotto or some distant relative I have never heard of leaves me a serious inheritance, I just can’t afford it. I could do much less, but due to personal circumstances I am not willing to make the attempt at this time.
dz: As said, you seem to be doing OK where you are. I just like the books and admire how well the houses operate. For us, it’s a might-mebbe that one of the kids will build like this. niio
Michael, Raven the Liar has been busy entertaining us with his bogus attempts to support his narcissism. After all the banter and BS from Raven I suspect he is a very insecure individual that is desperate for recognition and has no way to do it except to post a lot of garbage under self-appointed false “titles”.
Raven, to clarify, your first fail was to name yourself the Master or Expert of anything, and after that you’ve posted a continual string of insults, false accusations, and just plain BS. I truly recommend you grow up, get smart enough to start over with a brand new “title”, and stop being the immature egotistical asshole and ONLY post valid useful information that you honestly know is accurate, not just guessing, especially about other posters.
i am sorry you don’t know your history
Raven the Hypocrite, so your posting bogus titles aggrandizing yourself was NOT your first failure posting to this blog? Please enlighten us what was your first failure posting on this blog. Maybe it was the lies when you said you had “students” and then would not answer any questions about your teaching or classes? Maybe it was your falsely pretending you knew what other posters situations, abilities, or intentions were? BS is BS, making excuses now does not redeem your dishonesty.
I’m confused? A 16kWh lithium ion battery costs 14,900.00 but only weighs just under 400lbs?? I’m also concerned that our prepared comrade has been snookered.
Me, I just want to be warm, pain free and not worry about being able to feed my dogs. Anything else is gravy.
Kathy your attitude is refreshing. Your concerned about real life(tm) problems and seek solutions. Folks you should Question everything you hear about on the internet. Do your own research.
Want to stay warm? Have access to a decent supply of firewood look towards a Rocket Mass Heater also known as a Finnish or Russian Stove or Tile Stove. One real hot near smokeless burn heats all that mass and it radiates heat for hours. Depending on how cold it is outside, and your houses insulation one burn keeps my place warm for the day. Generally small easily insulated homes with solar access and willingness to wear seasonable clothing helps a lot to reduce how much energy (firewood-Propane etc.) you need. Areas with strong seasonable winds are good candidates for Windbreak Plantings. Plenty of windbreak plantings can be useful for food-medicine-firewood-even security (thorny)uses.
Why a windbreak? Ever stand sheltered from the wind on a snowy day and feel warm from the sunshine? You’re setting your whole home-barns etc. in that wind shelter.
Pain free (I suppose that include NOT HUNGRY, eh?) is a little harder. Some level of pain will always exist. After a day of gardening, I feel some pain from the efforts. Willow Tree Bark Tea is your backyard aspirin. Wild Lettice extract (nasty tasting but effective) or chewing a bit of it like chewing tobacco helps.
Feeding your Dogs, a noble thought I appreciate. That can be hardest depending on how much they eat but doable. I recently had to put down my old dog and am seeking a nice ratter for security alerts and pest control. Small smart dogs have been so useful and fun to have around.
Want some electricity? First determine what you NEED. What is your acceptable level of modern life stuff? Lights EASY with LED tech, A few Fans, SO many uses from spreading heat from the stove to cooling you and yours when sultry days come. Using Fans in your Solar Food Dryer (for that matter solar clothes dryer) GREATLY improves production even in muggy areas. Modest power needs. Slow Cooker or Microwave modest power needs as not a constant need the Microwave is short intense power needs is doable.
Water pumping, many factors here. How deep is the well AND the Expected Gallons Per Hour uses determines much of the power needs. A rainwater collection system into a cistern (plan where you put your filtration, PLEASE) a simple 12-volt diaphragm pump can do the deed like an RV system if you can live with less flow-pressure than city water. RV style pressure systems also work well with low power requirements. Many factors here.
Refrigeration and Freezers High Power Use and demands. Accepting a much smaller refrigeration and freezer helps a lot in making this solar doable. I am assuming you don’t have the money access of Bezos here.
Air Conditioning? LOL. Pre AC folks slept on the breezy porches, or in the cellar (best idea BTW) wore seasonable clothing (Not shorts but long sleeves-pants-skirts) and planned their day around the heat of the day. Windows, Fans and such. Drink plenty of water and deal with it.
So, it’s determine your Needs, break them down into Critical and Nice to have needs and go for it.
Michael and Kathy: Good posts, thank you. niio
red what does niio mean?
You post it every time 🙂
Michael: Walk in God’s beauty
yeah…. no it orginaly wa 10k but the price went up 3 k with the demand…. If you need a model type then sure lets go over it. Id love to see what your battery is and if its actually around..
why bother with a rocket stove and just install a wood stove…….. one it looks better and two it they do a decent job of heating the house
other then a compressor spike load…. the fridges and freezers are rather engery decent unless you got idiots opening the door every 5 mins.
the well isn’t bad but you do need to change over to the constant (variable pressure ) model that allows gradual amounts of water depending the load needed.
Stay in your lane Raven. Your lack of real-world knowledge about Rocket Mass heaters is showing. A Rocket Stove is a twig burner that heats food VERY Efficiently, a Rocket MASS Heater is a very different animal.
All current wood stoves are far less efficient (measured by BTU’s actually gained from burning the same number of pounds of firewood) aside from a quicker heating up cycle (Followed by an also Quick COOL Down Cycle when you stop stuffing firewood in them).
That and wood stoves strongly prefer well-seasoned hardwoods while the Rocket Mass Heaters are very efficient burning green crappy pine. Hot burns prevents creosote buildup as it’s consumed by the burning, it’s the “Banking the Fire” of Wood stoves that generates most of that smoky creosote issues in chimneys.
Thus, in lands like Finland where hardwoods are treasured and crappy Pine is burnt for heat Rocket Mass Heaters, aka Finnish Stoves are VERY popular. Yes, they DO use wood stoves for cooking and quick bursts of heat. Rocket Mass Heaters require thinking ahead a bit.
I’m not advertising myself as some sort of EXPERT, but I know enough NOT to POST on things I know little about. Thus, most of the times I don’t come across as an idiot.
It’s a new year, maybe you could learn from last year and relabel yourself as Raven and limit your posts to something you actually have real world knowledge of? I bet you’d get better responses that way.
Don’t you folks get it? Raven is trying to stir the pot of controversy.He is laughing at everyone for wasting time by
replying to his nonsense.
This may be only site that allows him to go on like he does.
Ignore him and move on to important matters.
Laughing no.. Just not suprised at the amount of sheep who bury their heads in the sand. Granted none of you will ever stand up for anything and you’re the reason why the country is the socialist nation it is now. You got nothing and will own nothing because you think that all you need is to vote every 4 years for some asshat to tell you what to do. When your asshat wins …. you sell out everything you once stood for because you’re to lazy and prideful to admit it. Then when the other guy wins…. you get angry……and mad but won’t do anything about it.
Go ahead stack some beans… play the prepper in the city and stock some bottle water up. … . its about all you’re good for anyways.
The IRS has also had a hiring boom from firing it’s workers who actually use their brain cells and think for themselves and refused the government assisted suicide mandate for the shot.
Michael, niio means ” Walk in God’s Love ” . Or something very similar to that. Old Indian saying.
People can learn a lot from the Native Americans. If they wanted to.
niio : “Walk in God’s beauty “. Now I remember.
We have learned and we continue to learn. One major thing preppers have leaned is sales resistance. We do things our way. We’re highly independent yet willing to submerge that for a time for the good of family and the nation. niio Walk in God’s beauty
Yeah, the main thing to learn from Native American Culture is that Native American Culture was completely and forever destroyed by our Euro ancestors from the moment we gave them smallpox, cholera, and the horse.
Judge: Nope. Tarahumara still live in the old way. A lot of peoples do. Those that can’t study it and try to spend time learning more. While there’s plenty of stands around the fort trash, there’s also plenty of people like those General Perishing called on to help in WWI and in Mexico. Not everybody fell prey to greed and hate. niio
so much drama
The IRS is tracking electronic payments of 600 plus because it counts as reportable income. So if you sell something such as an old travel trailer for 1k you are supposed to report it. If they pay you with pay pal they will know and check your filing. When the govt needs money the irs prefers to squeeze little people who can’t afford a lawyer. When that irs agent says pay a thousand dollars or get arrested you pay the money. Btw if you don’t want the govt to know what you have either buy common items a little along or buy in cash. Anything bought online or on a card is tracked. If you buy a clip online for an ar, they know you have an ar. If you frequent a site that is from a right wing group you will be on a list.
lol yes lets waste more time with the clintons…… . Worlds on fire but lets waste more time on things that don’t matter.
raven: why not? Serial killers and mass murderers should always be of interest. Europe always claimed to have none, but found dozens after our FBI opened offices in every major city there. the creepy clintons are vastly interesting because we see motive, but need to learn how they continue to escape justice. If I said your family is in their sights, then what?
Seagull, did you get your wheat planted yet?
dz; I don’t wheat it, but was given 3/4 ton of straw (1-1/2 1,000lbs bales) and it’s coming up all over. Because of maize dwarf mosaic virus it’s not likely to produce without a lot of help via zinc. It’s fertilizer. niio
I’m in Kansas, we completed planting winter wheat last month. Because I am not afraid to do data digging, let’s shut the fried chicken bird up
Here are the 10 countries with the most wheat production:
China (134.3 million metric tons)
India (98.5 million metric tons)
Russia (85.9 million metric tons)
United States (47.3 million metric tons)
France (36.9 million metric tons)
Australia (31.8 million metric tons)
Canada (30 million metric tons)
raven: War is the reason prices are going up. Since dems closed our pipeline, we’ve been importing triple the amount of oil from Russia. That’s a lot more expensive than using the pipeline. Exxon is a major importer of oil and gasoline to the US, and it’s in the top ten investments by congressmen )via family). And, now you know why the pipeline was shut down.
the price was sky rocketing even before the war. The war with Ukraine who is the third largest producer is going to have long term effects on food prices for the World. Russia isnt concered as much because shocking China will buy up anything food and oil wise. Keeping the Russians econmony going.
Meanwhile watching the EU freeze out is going to be a sad state of affairs… Should be seeing some false flag attacks in the US so the elites can “push the us into a war”
Kathy, thank you, I got curious, so I did a quick search and found:
and it shows Ukraine is at number 9, right between Pakistan and Germany.
Top Wheat Producing Countries
Rank Country Wheat Produced (Tonnes)
1 China 134,340,630
2 India 98,510,000
3 Russian Federation 85,863,132
4 United States of America 47,370,880
5 France 36,924,938
6 Australia 31,818,744
7 Canada 29,984,200
8 Pakistan 26,674,000
9 Ukraine 26,208,980
10 Germany 24,481,600
nice article… did you happen to notice too russian and china are 3 and 1….. what happens when you combine it all with number 9 then.. .
you guys don’t think very hard and lack critical skills…
What a maroon!
Add together all this to make me right. I’m speechless.
One of my favorite sayings: You don’t have to prove an idiot wrong to be right.
Kathy, just goes to show that facts and reality don’t matter to Libtards and other egotistical fanatical idiots desperate for attention.
Your post about taking care of patients seems like a Nurse or Caregiver, hard profession, takes a lot of knowledge, skill, patience, and endurance. Thank you for your service to others.
Yes, emergency room and sicu nurse. Retired.
to whom it may concern: The neighbors, retired ranchers from Montana, said ranchers are thinking about wheat, but likely will not plant. The price is just too low. I asked family in PA, Ohio, OK, and elsewhere. anyone plating wheat? Nope. the price is too low. niio
yet wheat prices are threw the roof thanks to Russian and Ukraine deal…. oh well keep your head in the sand and ignore the world its cool most sheaep do that. This year’s food shortages will be the worst on record.
ravening anti-Torah: Panic buying. Plus, china lost almost all her rice and wheat. If you lived in Wisconsin, wheat and rice shouldn’t be a problem.
red, my posts about wheat are because Seagull the False X-spurt posted that Ukraine produces 1/3 of the world’s wheat, which sounds bogus so I didn’t even bother to research, and posted for him to get busy and get his wheat planted (to help make up the difference and save the world of course), and then he lashed back as if we don’t know it’s winter, so I also let him know you and I are both planting now, and even harvesting things that wintered over, even suggesting he move farther south to have longer growing seasons, but he then went quiet and wouldn’t answer. I know it’s pointless to try and enlighten that ignorant fanatic, but maybe someone else will get some ideas they can use, like planting ground cover and/or winter crops such as winter wheat. And I know, you plant winter wheat in the fall, harvest in the spring, but we could probably plant summer wheat or other grains now or at least very soon.
Not moving i am happy where i am in Wisconsin. Yes the Ukraine produces a 1/3 of the worlds Wheat. its not exactly that hard and it will be a shortage. Much like this is going to be a very lousy growing season globablly as fertiizler and plenty of the raw products needed are in very short supply. That and fuel prices will be hovering around 5 dollars a gallon by the end of March.
Yes its winter here and we don’t have the ablity to plant in a frozen ground or its pretty stupid to plant when it hasn’t been above 32 degrees for more then a single day. Henseworth i am getting setup for our normal maple sryup season.
raven: be happy if fuel doesn’t jump to 5 by next week.
January and February are when you plant clover and alfalfa for a cover crop. you can seed onions and still stick garlic. Greens from the cabbage and radish family can also be frost seeded. If they bolt, turn them under to kill nematodes, something your soil is bad for.
red…. what part of wisconsin you can’t even chisel the ground…. Its frozen….. and 24 inches down at this point. You be a fool to destroy your equipment to even try. the cover crops go in at the end of oct/nov before the big freeze….
Gas will be hitting 5 bucks a gallon which will only make inflation that much worse.
Raven, when the snow goes for a time in winter, a chinook, then refreezes it cracks open. Then clover, alfalfa, radishes, onion seeds, and most spring crops are seeded. It’s called frost seeding. We put all that in plus rye grain, in fall first, in unplowed frozen maize ground. Later, after the cattle were in the pens with hay, pastures were seeded like that with the same seeds. Up in South Dakota, ranchers do the same and it’s a little chillier than where you are.
Here, I can plant some fall seeds in summer that will not come up till the ground temps cool down..
expert raven droppings: why are you lying, again? You seem to lack reading skills. did you try to have the animals relocated? No, of course not. You just killed it and managed to destroy something that God placed there to improve the fishing and hunting in the area. Yes, I know you think Elohim is a liar and only elohim have an say about things. Ask a rabbi. No one Torah compliant would have killed the animal, especially one that helps feed people.
I seriously doubt beaver damn anything. You have to be able to speak to curse something.
A stand pipe with a cage should have worked. Did you try that? Family in central Appalachia use stand pipes to keep irrigation water in a series of ponds flowing. How about popping M-80s in the water? A beaver would prevent brush from growing on the DAM’s bank, and brush is the major cause of dam collapse. They have no problems with that, though streams leading into the ponds tend to flash flood in hurricane season. Beaver help keep the dams in repair.
You do tend to make an ass of yourself. City bo? Now I’m a quarter staff? LOL, not me but the stick I carry, liberal. City life is fun, but I could never handle it for long. Too many raven droppings libertards for me to want to stay. Ya but all those thousands of rabbis and their congregations are cool. And Torah compliant. Very good teachers on the Torah, and hate your liberalism.
Red aww little vegan boy can’t handle the truth. Relocate it lol sure lets capture a 65 pound beaver and do …what make it someone else’s problem…
you city people are idiots.
Uh-oh, chicken crap strikes again. As you follow elohim, not God, we have to make allowances for the fact you act like someone sexually abused as a child.
It’s against my religion–non-elohim dark gods–to be a vegan. My Bible shows God doesn’t approve of it. Certainly all of my ancestors are rolling on the floor laughing at you.
I have no problem with truth. God is truth. Truth is the blessed Torah mocks trouble makers as evil. Your father is called the Liar/satan/elohim/the great rabbit. As someone under the curses of elohim, you have my sympathy, poor lil faker. Me, I’m doubly blessed in all ways and anyone who knows the Torah knows God will not bless the ungodly.
I know a lot of city people. Many are Torah compliant and love it. You just cursed them and all people and for that god has to curse you.
dz: spring wheat in Kali and here now. I can’t eat it, but do some coconut flour, buckwheat, mesquite, and so on. Bean flour is good, but needs to be mixed. Pinto, especially after drying out for several years, makes a good flour, which it was bred for.
Some of us are not cool and act like they were sexually abused at a very young age. If I lived in Swissconson, I’d have a nice beaver pond and plant wild rice. It grows great with beaver in a pond to regulate water levels as ki up that way tell me. But, i was unwell last fall and missed planting Indian Rice Grass, a perennial wild rice for the desert. niio
More Germans moved to Wisconsin then swiss….
No beavers don’t regulate anything… They just raise the ponds and keep flooding everything out. So nobody wants beavers destroying ponds and fields for growing food. So its a shoot on sight for any beavers around here.
It’s called Swissconson because it and Switzerland are equally famous for cheese and dairy.
Lemme see, you claim to be Torah compliant but kill animals for fun. http://messianicfellowship.worthyofpraise.org/hunting.html Yes, the Torah claims that it is murder of one of God’s possessions. https://jewishthoughtsblog.wordpress.com/2016/11/04/parshas-noach-righteousness-in-a-corrupt-world/ Beavers regulate water flow, water level, and attract flocks of waterfowl as well as make habitat for schools of fish. https://beaverworks.org/beavers-and-native-wildlife-habitat/ America Indians always used beaver ponds for fishing and hunting, and to raise rice. A lot of us forbad hunting beaver because the ponds were a ready source of meat and fish. Beaver add to the wealth of the land for a survivalist.
considering you have shown your entire lack of knowledge from a guy who lives in in town on the liberal west coast.. I didn’t kill it for fun… I killed because the beaver was destroying the pond and was washing out the damn. We also had the issue of flooding the field because the “damage he was causing was to great. (they don’t regulate a pond ) they just damn it up and keep raising the water. They have no mind but to destroy every tree and destroy everything around them. Shoot on sight. Had a few trappped and it was much easier to shoot them in the head.
So really you can move on with your “no knowledge on country living city boi” Go back to your West Coast dreams of paying more for gas and higher taxes.
buzzard bait: Wow, are you anti-Torah. I teach ag. this is one of your worse posts, city boy. You’re a lib, trying to drive people off this site. Only a closet gay acts like you do. You know absolutely nothing about country, let alone brush land. I can teach ag in the Northeast and southwest. The only times I’ve been to kali was when still driving truck. Chickenhawk, I lived free for 2 years. No house, made my own by cutting a dugout in a hill, roofed it with brush, tarps and dirt.
red, isn’t it amazing how some idiots will insist on defending their ignorance? By the way, I didn’t know AZ was “left coast”, I must have missed something in geography class. Does the Colorado River count as coastline? Of course, this from the same fool that claims he’s a homesteader and “takes care of the land” but doesn’t really know much about farming or land management.
dz: did you hear the latest? Now I’m a city bo (quarter staff).
Now, even raven droppings have their use. If hew knew anything Biblical about ravens, he’d know why they exist, and how they helped save a prophet from starving to death in a famine. God said, the ravens will feed you. No mention if the meat was Law compliant. No questions asked about who or what it came from.
keep on your work and keep telling us how it goes. niio
red, I’m impressed, even the “Charlie Foxtrot” X-spurt has acknowledged you are one big stick hardon woody!!! Maybe he really can read minds…. NOT!!! We definitely don’t need to stroke his ego; he does plenty of self-stroking already.
I wonder if he even realizes that everything he professes about his “religion” is pointing out to everyone who is paying attention that he is just a blind follower in an archaic cult, and apparently lying and hypocrisy are accepted conduct in his cult.
dz: True. but, as Jesus said about being the first bon son, he’s the fist of loving correction. Dare I allow him to shame the very people who are our only true allies in that area? He cannot understand someone respecting him and lashes out. That beaver was only the tip of the iceberg. What might be next is lice, birds, the fleas of a thousand camels invading his shorts (one son-in-law is Bangladesh Sunni and after a whiskey sour too many, talks like that 🙂 (Nice guy, but tequila makes him puke like he was in need of the Exorcist)
OK, here’s a good one from the 50s.
A man walks into a restaurant and asks for a steak. Waiter: and how would you like that, sir?” Man: Like I win an argument with my wife. “Waiter: Yes, sir. Rare it is! niio
dz: This is something good about Trump being robbed; all the filth is coming out that they can not hide! I wonder (hoping) that whoever replaces biden will allow Russia to extradite him and hunter for corruption and slavery. niio
Now the question becomes will the American people who so dislike (dispise) the current situation not let it happen again. I could hope. Why I’ll continue to prep.
nothing changes and it only gets worse…. Eventually we fold
dz: he does tend to love the sound of his own depression. If life were up to him, we would be speaking Chinese to our masters in Beijing. niio
dz: When dems need a body, someone asks male or female, young or old. Every time dems want to talk gun control, shooters appear. It’s how they manipulate the sheep. niio
yup, and the Lame Stream Media jumps right in a promotes whatever agenda they think will provide the best ratings and profit margins.
Add to that, that lame stream is owned outright by lib politicos and their families. niio
In today’s day and age, there are a lot of different things that can go wrong, and there are even more ways to prepare for them. The good news is that it’s never too early to start preparing, so even if you only have a few days worth of food stored away, you’re already on the right track. Even if you don’t have much in the way of supplies, it doesn’t hurt to start stockpiling some water and other essentials. You never know when an emergency might strike, so by having a plan in place, you can be prepared no matter what happens.
