As the Russian invasion of Ukraine rages on, the president of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, has been threatening the rest of the world.
The basic threat is that if we don’t stand back and let him do what he wants, he’s going to go nuclear. Whether that means an all-out nuclear war of tactical nukes targeted at whichever country raises his ire at that particular moment.
Either way, one tactical nuke could easily lead to an all-out nuclear war, especially if it exploded in a member country of the NATO alliance.
NATO was created to protect western Europe from invasion by the former Soviet Union. While that political body no longer exists, the Russian Federation is its successor.
Putin, who was part of the KGB, dreams of a return to the glory days of the defunct empire, and his attack on Ukraine seems to be a step in his campaign to make that happen.
Unfortunately for Ukraine, they aren’t a part of NATO; but several of the countries sending them military aid are.
Should Putin decide that such aid is crossing the line of what neutral countries are allowed to do during war, his response could very well be to attack the offending country with a nuke.

According to the mutual defense clause of the NATO treaty, that attack would require a military response from every member of NATO, including the United States.
That line may have already been crossed, with countries sending military hardware to Ukraine.
Worse than that, Jen Psaki, the White House spokesperson, publicly told reporters that the United States was providing intelligence information to Ukraine, something that is considered casus belli, a cause for war, as it constitutes taking sides as a party to the hostilities.
While most Americans support Ukraine in this war, the fact that we are taking sides by providing intelligence information to Ukraine is something that should have been kept secret.
The question which faces us now is whether Putin will push the button. The only thing stopping him is fear of retaliation. That fear may not be all that much, if he thinks that President Biden won’t retaliate.
So, what should we be watching for, to know when Putin is getting ready to push the button?
Signs That Have Already Happened
Allow me to start out with a few very real signs that have already happened.
While these are not as serious as the ones to follow, there is a progression in this process. The fact that these have already happened just means that we are already on the road towards that button being pushed.
Threats of the Use of Nukes
All of this started out with Putin making some rather clear threats about his willingness to use nuclear arms in the current conflict.
Those threats have continued; some openly, while others have been references that were a bit more obscure.
Either way, the message has gotten through and world leaders are taking it seriously.
Putin Going into Hiding
It’s normal for political leaders to go into hiding during a war, as they are prime targets; but if anything, that is even more likely when they are getting ready to launch a nuclear missile strike.
As best we know, Putin isn’t suicidal; so even though he is willing to gamble with the life of his country, he apparently isn’t willing to gamble with his own life or the lives of his family. He has gone into hiding.
Related: Where to Go When You Don’t Have a Nuclear Bunker
There are apparently those who are looking for Putin, either to deal with him as snipers do or to take him prisoner as a war criminal.
One Russian oligarch has offered a million-dollar reward to anyone in the Russian military who takes Putin prisoner, claiming that it is their responsibility to do so.
Raising of the Readiness Level of Russian Missile Forces
About a week ago, Putin raised the level of readiness for Russian nuclear forces, either as an act of brinksmanship or in preparation for using them.
In either case, it means that those forces can launch much faster than they could if they were still at peacetime levels of readiness.
While they are not at their highest possible level, with a finger poised over the button, they’re close.
A Demonstration Attack
The artillery attack on the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, the largest nuclear power plant in Europe, can be seen to be an escalation of hostilities, with nuclear overtones.
Related: What Is The Closest Power Plant To Your Home? Are You Living In The High-Risk Zone?
There is no way that the plant was targeted accidentally, not in today’s world of computerized weapons and satellite position locating. While Russia doesn’t use the GPS satellite system, they have their own.
I don’t believe in coincidences, so it seems very suspicious that the only reactor that they fired upon, the one that caught fire, was down for maintenance. That indicates some rather current and accurate intelligence information.
Chances of it blowing up were minimal and if an artillery round went long and hit one of the other reactors, they could have claimed it an “accident.”
Signs that are Yet to Come
So far, the signs that we’re seeing don’t indicate that Putin’s finger is poised over the button; but it looks like he’s keeping it near.
Whether or not he decides to push it will depend on his reading of the situation, nothing else. It doesn’t matter so much what the other countries of the world do at this point, as how he interprets their actions.
He has started this war and he’s got to come out of it with some gain or he will lose face, something that he can’t afford and his ego won’t allow.
Raising the Rocket Forces to their Maximum Readiness Level
While Russian nuclear forces are at a heightened alert and readiness level, they are not yet at their highest possible level.
There is still some room for it to go up, something that Putin will want to do, before giving the order to launch. Russia still has a number of liquid-fueled ICBMs.
The fuel used in these rockets is highly corrosive, so it is not stored in the rockets, but rather in nearby tanks. It takes some time to fuel those rockets, once the order is given.
Raising the alert level to the maximum level will also mean fueling those rockets so that they are ready to fly.
If Putin gave the order before fueling them, the attack would be either delayed or carried out in a haphazard manner. Hence the importance of fueling them beforehand.
Putin Cutting Off Communication with Foreign Governments
Anyone who has watched a western knows that there’s a time when the gunmen stop talking and just stare at each other, waiting for the other guy to draw.
While that’s Hollywood’s rendition of things, it is based upon the reality that there is usually a pause before an attack.
When Putin reaches the point where he’s seriously contemplating a nuclear attack, he will stop accepting calls from other heads of government.
Related: What the Government Can or Can’t Do Under Martial Law
On one hand, he won’t want to give away his planned actions and on the other hand, he won’t want to give them the chance to talk him out of it.
There’s also a chance that Putin will break off formal communications with some governments, closing embassies and recalling his ambassadors before attacking.
That’s probably unlikely, as it would telegraph his intentions too well; but if it does happen, we can be sure that his finger is poised above the button and he’s about to press it.
Moving Other Government Leaders Out of Moscow
It’s fairly clear that Putin and his family are out of Moscow in some secret location. Rumor has it that he has a private bunker complex somewhere in the mountainous Altai Republic.
But at the moment the rest of the Russian government is in place and operating.
But the Russians, like our own government, have plans for moving their political leadership out of Moscow in the event of nuclear war.
Putin is likely to make that move, protecting his own government, before ordering the launch.
Moving Russian Troops Out of Harm’s Way
Finally, the last move that Putin will probably make, before launching a nuclear strike, is to move his own forces out of the danger zone.
That would include grounding aircraft, having ships move farther out to sea, and having troops disengage if they are too close to the projected epicenter of the explosion.
It is unlikely that all his troops will be moved, as he still has a conventional war going on; only those who are close enough to the targeted cities will be moved, in order to protect those troops.
That may look like a retreat, but it will be more like the quarterback dropping back before he throws the ball. Those troops will be regrouping, rearming, and preparing to go back on the offensive, as soon as the nuclear part of the attack is over.

I am more fearful of our own government.
We know what Putin’s going to do. But we don’t know what this bunch of Satanist demoncraps leftist are going to do.
They seem hell bent on destroying this nation.
So me personaly, not worried about Putin.
It’s biden, and that bunch of fake ass liberals. all of them…
One day someone will come and destroy those that think they are the rulers. and it won’t be Jesus. But Jesus will destroy him and all the one’s that took his number…
The stage is being set for him right know.
Better fear GOD more…
I’m Amazed at how easily they split the conservatives. Putin Good! Putin Bad! All I know is that if Putin does nuke us all you Putin apologists will be public enemy #1 overnight. Dear leader Brandon might have to round all you Russian sympathizers up and put you in the camps you thought were being built for covid. When are all of you going to realize that we see almost nothing that isn’t designed to influence your thought process and control you? EVERYTHING about this war is a set up. The only way to win is not to play. Wake up and quit being led around by the nose.
we know Putin is a bad guy, but a predictable bad guy, our bad guys leading us to oblivion we don’t know what they will do.
👆👆Agree with you!!!
I pray Putin ends the Deep State of globalist. He seems to be targeting them and sanctioning them directly. Thankful he’s not blaming all of the U.S. for the choices of the few in government. Also, Ukraine is still legally part of Russia, so, I doubt Russia is declaring war on itself. We have no business being involved. Also I think the alliance and duty to the American people is more important than any military industrial complex funding or any agreements with NATO.
Make no mistake Putin is not the good guy here. Ukraine and Russia are both extremely corrupt as is the US. This conflict is 100% orchestrated as was the Covid response, inflation, gas prices and the invasion at the southern border, etc. Biden and Harris are just very stupid puppets.
The only thing somewhat puzzling to me is how there can still be “Americans” that cannot or do not want to see what’s going on. There is no shortage of stupid.
J: True, but putin is targeting the real enemies, liberals. The only reason he tied in with chicoms is because of our liberals. niio
to be so shallow thinking that he cares about the “political divison in the US is laughable” Same people are taking off the covid mask to fly Ukraine flags now … and say putin bad ukraine good..
Its all trash and the republicans are just as reasponable for playing in Ukraine political bs… as the left was. Get over the stuipd left and right wing shit…. its the same damn bird thats been screwing you over for a 100 years
You need to go fishing. Have some sex. Drink, smoke, enjoy. Whatever you are doing, it ain’t working. All of you. Geez.
Are you nuts? Everything you said is wrong. Putin can’t target anyone while relying on anyone else even in production of milk in Russia, or drilling for oil. Anywhere you look, Russia is using Western tech to do anything. That’s the first. Secondly, Putin is a dictator and has to go no matter what. There’s no place for a dictator in the modern world. Third, Ukraine is legally never been a part of Russia, what the F are you talking about? Ukraine was a republic of Soviet Union, but in 1991 it became independent as well as Russia that also walked away from the union around that time and other republics did the same thing and became independent countries. So, you’re wrong again. Funding a military complex is important now like never before, because of countries like Russia, North Korea, China – these countries threaten the West all the time even though the West is what made and still makes them not end up in hunger. Technologies, production, teaching, development, etc – many things were given to those countries from the West, and then the West is who has been buying all the products made by those countries, making their economy thrive. The world today is interconnected, no country will be doing good on its own, NONE! Keep biting the helping hand isn’t going to end up good for a dog with rabies.
Odd, just in time for a Putin BAD, USA White Hat’s article.
Our feckless or worse malevolent government ignored every off ramp to avoid this “Controllable Little War” as so to BURY the crimes of Money Printing and COVID tyranny.
OR DID YOU MISS that Gasoline and everything ELSE was GOING UP LONG before the Ukraine situation? OR did you miss the losses of Jobs and hope due to WORTHLESS COVID Lockdowns that put the “vaxxed” against the DIRTY NASTY “Unvaxxed”. DIVIDE AND Conquer MEAN NAYTHING TO YOU. OR did you MISS the little Canadian Tyranny of USING the Banking SYSTEM to PUNISH everybody that supported those Truckers?
POOF ALL GONE, Lets HATE on Putin. Amazing, Putin CURED COVID…. Let that sink in.
The POWERS that BE give’s a shit about us “Little People” as they maneuver us into the slavery of Karl’s little “You’ll own Nothing and be Happy” GREAT RESET.
Putin’s not Karl’s man so he is going to be sacrificed to bring down Russia and the USA as to eliminate two birds with one “Stone” so to say.
Starvation is a tyrant’s cheapest weapon. Move it or lose it. They WANT you to twitter about Putin BAD instead of focusing on DOING the critical needed things to protect your family from THEIR OWN Holodomor.
Karl or Klaus? The people in the reptiles in the Bush/Bush jr/Obama/Hillary/Biden admin have been working this dance since 2008 and even further back than that! Also no one speaking as to how the deepstate were not Only Protecting Neo-Nazi and actual Nazi’s since the 30’s but also the Bidens/Clintons amplified Ukrainian “Culture/Color Revolutionaires” and rioters/Protesters as the TRIDENTS, the AZOV BATTALION, the SVBODA AND OTHER “ANTIFA/ANTIFAXTION” ETHNIC CLEANSING GROUPS.
THIS HAS ALL BEEN INTENTIONAL BY THE CORNUCOPIC GLOBAL WORLD ORDER OF PREDATORY CLASS OF ELITES!
You nailed it !
Well that’s a strange thing to write about…. but to each their own.
Both sides are stupid and evil so the idiots wanting to go fight “ukraine is one of the most sheep like movements i have seen.”
Rarely agree with Raven. However in this case I have to make an exception. Everybody bad-mouthed Putin for taking back the Crimean area. Until Krushchev gave Crimea to Ukraine for some unfathomable reason it had belonged to the tsarist Russian empire for 200 years. Putin has stated and folks who have made studying him their life’s work agree that his life’s goal is to restore present day Russia to the boundaries of the tsarist Russian Empire.
While we may not agree with his life’s goal, it isn’t hard to understand. How would we feel if the ethnically Mexican population put a ballot measure up for vote to rejoin the territory that they felt the U.S. had purchased at the point of a gun from Mexico back into the living arms of Old Mexico? Do you think there might be some armed hostilities take place?
I must agree with the commenters who say this is a smoke and mirrors attempt to distract us from what is the secret plan which is to destroy the U.S. currency and put all the hoi pilloi on EBT cards which will be the only medium for purchasing the basics of life. With every meaningful financial transaction stored electronically it is an incredibly simple matter to make all those records disappear.
The dodos we have running the government might even go so far as to try to get Putin to nuke the U.S. with an EMP nuke to destroy those records. Which act would enable them to institute the EBT cards so that everyone would be equal only some would be more equal than the rest. And everybody would point the finger at Putin and push all the hate on him. Perfect scapegoat. He gets all the blame. Schumer & Pelosi and company look like hero’s. Ole Two-Shot might be lost in a horrible helicopter crash while being transported to a safe undisclosed location while Commie Harris whose ancestors were the horrible slave owners she like to declaim if slave owners happened to be white is somehow killed when the White House is stormed by right wing terrorists.
I know, only a paranoid nut job would think such terrible thoughts about our honest leaders trying their best to contain a communist leader bent on world domination. Guilty as charged. And when we are all filling out the application for the EBT card I Am going to say “I TOLD YOU SO”
LCC. You are right on the money on a lot of points. One of them being diverting attention away from what is going on & is fixing to go on, with our own government. Another point is something that I’ve felt was going to happen all along. And that is, if Biden were taken out of the picture, that would put Harris in charge. Then if something happened to Harris. Low & behold Pelosi’s dreams will be fulfilled, PELOSI WILL BE IN CHARGE ! God help us if that comes to pass. All that aside. We the common people, are BELOW the bottom of the list of importance if anything happens. We are nothing but dollar signs & cannon fodder to those in charge. Just a means to fund their escape.
Completely agree with LCC here and tacitly with Raven. This has been going on for a while now. There is a lot of major plays being made and the media, both the MSM and the social type has helped brainwash the masses. From mass voting dumps in the election to “insurrection” on Jan 6th to absolutely zero prosecutions of Antifa and BLM agitators who actually did cause millions in damage and mayhem. Now we have rampant inflation and the “official” numbers are less than half of reality.
The reason for the currency controls (Brandon tried to track 600 bucks or more) is to be able to track everything so we end up with nothing when it happens. We will be a nation of slaves and subservient to the elites. ATF has committed many crimes in creating a data base of all firearms transactions. The left does not want “ghost guns” as there is no way to trace them when firearms are out lawed.
To LCCs point on EBT cards if you turn in your neighbor for having more than you it will be easy to reward you with a few extra credits. Belt tightening will take on a whole new meaning.
You are right! BUT, there is another way that snitches cannot stop: a barter economy. Say you need my skills for a project you cannot do yourself, and you have something I need. We trade quietly, and the Government isn’t any wiser because it is happening all over the CONUS. They cannot keep track of barter trading because it is small, very difficult to even see, if even to keep track of. Yes, cameras exist everywhere, but when found are destroyed and unusable. OR, strategically blocked at the appropriate time. Asymmetrical warfare is the key, we learned it in Vietnam the hard way. Snitches disappear in the night, never to be seen again – a “deterrent” to other potential snitches. The Nation survives without the COG (continuity of government) knowing anything, the viewable Government flopping around worthlessly. The illiterate lemmings told not to interfere at the cost of their EBT cards and starvation facing them unless they join the Underground Economy. The COG and “Elected Government” helpless to know or interfere with the people. Yes, it sounds almost impossible, but it WORKS! Especially when the people realize that their lives and their kids lives depend on an underground economy. The government cannot attack or stop what it cannot see or know much about.
You raise an interesting dilemma for patriots. You talk as though the government is the enemy; it is not. There are certainly those in government who are enemies of the people and of the Constitution but our constitutional government exists because our forefathers chose it. Our government exists by the consent of the people and is necessary in order to secure our rights, including Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.
In my view, any action by a person, including persons who just happen to get a government pay check, that is offensive to the Constitution and tries to subdue me outside of their constitutional authority is tyranny. Snitching to a tyrant is to support that tyranny and I fully agree they should be stopped by whatever means ensures they are no longer a threat.
But tyrants are not government – even if they get a government paycheck. Tyrants are just tyrants. Those tyrants, and those who support them, are individually enemies but the government itself is not. I have no intention of fighting our constitutional government but I will fight tyranny.
Could you please be more specific in your responses?
We have many scumbags here who show up to opinionate, so it is helpful to include YOUR particular scumbag’s name so the correct scumbag may address their intrarectal craniitus.
Thank you for your cooperation, and have a nice day!
As with any war, the highest probability is that this is theater designed to funnel yet more of the value that the masses create into the hands of the very, very few. War is the biggest, most profitable business on the planet for one reason, it’s fear driven and fear is extremely easy to create. A few words from a world leader or a few thousand bucks to a merc to blow something up so it can be blamed on the boogyman de jure is all it takes. The banks, the defense contractors and the energy sector live for this shit and the average joe gets ground up to grease the machine. WWI was started by one idiot with a pistol. It turned into the biggest commercial market for anything in the history of humanity. USMC Major General Smedley Butler called it almost 90 years ago after one of the most celebrated carriers in US military history, “War is a racket.” and “I was a gangster for Wall Street.” Never forget.
100 percent correct!
Anyone that doesn’t believe ALL of this is orchestrated to quickly advance the Globalist agenda, world government and the destruction of America is not paying attention.
Conseco: Dems never do anything except they make cash off it.
JPup: You nailed it. niio
Well, war is naturally competitive as humans naturally and racially are. War is part of our genetic memories. Or else we would be apathetic and extinct. Competition is warfare concealed. We get a rush of hormones when we win over another. “Fight or Flight” is a part of our nature millions of years old. We do not give up easily or completely. That is why you see the rich and the poor. The rich or “well to do” haven’t given up, while the poor are escaping the plight they are in. This will not change very soon or in the foreseeable future. The conservatives do not spend money uselessly unless it gets them some bigger gain. The liberals spend money uselessly, depending on the “dole” that Churches and Government throws around to gain their popularity with the poor liberals. That is the way people have lived for thousands of years. Some “beggars” get an income that supersedes most of the lower middle class tax free! Cash has been the trackless income for many, and may be forever.
Remember back in the 1960s when Russia started supplying Cuba with ballistic missiles, the United States responded with a naval blockade of Cuba — and had followup plans to invade the island if that didn’t work. If we found it unacceptable for an enemy force to have enemy weapons so close to our borders, why should we expect the Russians to feel any differently?
Note further that most of the news we get out of the Ukraine is fake. Whether it’s Secretary of State Blinken claiming that Poland is going to provide Mig 29 jets to the Ukrainian Air Force and allow them to use its air bases — a blatant lie that the Poles called him out on and made an ass of him in the process — or claims that the Russians shelled the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant which are disputed since they had already stormed it earlier. You can’t trust anything that either side is saying at the moment. The truth will eventually come out, but not until the fog of war has lifted.
If the Russians attack us, there may be no warning. A decapitation strike is their best bet. Surviving a nuclear attack means not living near any big city or military bases, having a well stocked fallout shelter and never being too far from it. As others have pointed out, our biggest risks at the moment are our leaders who apparently have so much contempt for us that they are deliberately trying to bring destruction to the world on a scale that it has never before seen.
familiar with “The Pot Calling the Kettle Black”? – you need to read that history a little closer or just quit trying to do an amend to fit ….
Russia didn’t supply missiles to Cuba – they were positioning them there and kept them under their control and intended to keep it that way ….
as far as missile threatening involving Ukraine – Poland has been a NATO member for many years and no offensive missiles have ever been deployed – unlike Russia – Russia deployed missile batteries to Belarus and uber updated them to the S-400 status a couple years ago – doubled the missile batteries prior to their invasion >> both involvement with missile attacks on Ulraine and nuke threats on NATO – Who’s the aggressor??? – Who’s deploying threats??? – Who’s actually using said threats???
good try at another version of trying to excuse KGB Putin >> probably better luck with the Nazi myth or the Fauci lab myth or the tried & true Hitler “Homeland” invasion excuse ….
Are you a paid troll? If so, your specious arguments could use some polish before you ask for that cost-of-living raise you’re going to need after “FBI Biden” gets done with our economy.
Ukraine voluntarily negotiated return of ALL NUCLEAR WEAPONS TO RUSSIA.
They never proposed to acquire nuclear weapons if admitted to NATO, either. It is a pretext only for this invasion/land grab.
It is about warm sea ports, agricultural land, ego, and OIL. Biden just provided the opportunity.
You are an idiot.
Ukrainians ARE Nazis.
Ukraine took to NAZI like a baby takes a nipple.
Then they murdered every Joo in the country.
I hope that Putin nukes Ukraine 5 minutes before he nukes DC.
Both are filled with NAZI scum.
Like all the NAZIS at NASA and the Pentagram.
The S400 is a purely defensive system. The air defense systems we have put close to
the Russian border can also be loaded with nuclear armed Tomahawk missiles. Everybody deploys short and medium range rocket artillery to support ground operations as well as having the ability to attack with cruise missiles. It is the idea of nukes a few minutes from their strategic bases that upsets the Rooskies.
If the west wants war, they will get it. This is quite possible the most reckless thing any western nation has done since… well, ever. Russia doesn’t want Ukraine, they don’t want weapons on their doorstep as you said, parts of Ukraine want out of Ukraine.
Russia took the power plant with very little resistance, they captured all 240 personnel guarding the plant after they surrendered. They all signed a declaration they would no longer fight against Russia and were released to go home…
Who is the bad guy here? We will never know, (especially if you are listening to mainstream media), but as you clearly said, just like the Cuban missile crisis, Russia, after 14 years of warning the West about NATO on this front being unacceptable are still trying to push weapons on their doorstep.
Let’s remain objective and try looking at this from an alternative point of view. I don’t want Russian or Chinese missiles on my doorstep… think about it. De-escalate and think of the cost of war…especially on this scale.
A nuclear war ought to hide their transgressions, ay? They must be Many Serious transgressions indeed. I’m not a Russian sympathizer , but I do understand that there are lots of things we haven’t been told. Thank God for the internet !! Otherwise Everyone would be buying into the Official narrative , but as it stands we can see a LOT of Propaganda ! Like the courtyard FULL of bodybags > 57-59 < ppl killed!! oh my gosh, wait ! What? The body in the bag just threw it off his head and started thrashing a bit, before a gal ran up and told him to stop . It's a LIVE cast,Fool. !! OR Miss Ukraine ,going to Fight for her country (happens to be holding an AIr-soft rifle. Sorry Honey, the Russians are using REAL bullets. So #nastyNan and #ChucklebuckSchumer #JohnKlimatekerry and others just protecting their kids jobs in Ukraine, pays so well. #FJB #FKH #F**KThemAll
Putin claims he is taking Ukraine to keep NATO from being on his border. Problem is, NATO will still be on his border, in fact even more so, when he annexes Ukraine. So then he has to go to Poland to keep NATO off his border.
Since Biden’s response to Putin’s nuclear threat was to shit his pants, the downfall of Europe may very well come in my life time (and I’m old). This is something I never thought we’d see and I spent many years in the service in the Cold War.
Putin’s expansionist moves were inevitable as soon as someone declared the Cold War over. As someone very much involved in the Cold War, I knew it was never over. It was a huge mistake to think that the threat ended when the Soviet Union ended.
All the ignoramous’ that voted for these global elites are getting what they voted for. Our corrupt government started this mess with ukraine in 14 and its the same scum there now minus hitlary clinton throw in inept woke austen and miley and exporting democracy look at libya yemen afghanistan iraq all these corrupt scumbags brought these places to a living hell and now ukraine because they need to take the focus away from the destruction they continue to due to our country. Our media is no different than russian or chinese. Our sickness system (healthcare?) is pathetic we are a sick nation war on cancer? Been hearing that war since tricky dick nixon. Drug problems dont take the shit im to feel sorry for you and pay for you because some big drug company addicted you ? Really take responsibility for your actions fentanyl od dont take drugs its pretty simple you put shit in your body you will suffer the consequences you want to stop the never ending war on drugs another boondoggle stop using u want to end being self surveilled and big techs fascists bullshit stop using as the mvie said hells coming to breakfast buckle up because we have corrupt leadership we were energy independent for the first time in my life and if this brain dead puppet just left well enough alone we would be fine right now but print money and go green hate energy and this is what u get and they come out and say it putin i dont like vlady but id do the same and its all because our govt caused this situation i wouldnt want china on mexican border
I just LOVE how dips**t in WH and his awful cacklehen VP, talk about democracy and A Nations Sovereignity and secure their borders, makes me throw up, EVERYTIME. WHAT ABOUT UNITED STATES SOVEREIGNITY>> WHAT ABOUT OUR SOUTHERN BORDER?? Such a complete embarrassment
Its a depressing crock of hooey. a friend in need is a friend indeed, HYUCK HYUCK HYUCK
Absolutely right, Jim!
All the ignoramuses (virtually everyone) never learn the obvious reality which is …
There is a class war of the ruling psychopaths versus the non-ruling people anywhere on earth — https://www.rolf-hefti.com/covid-19-coronavirus.html
As psychopaths the leading authorities keep the dumb herd effectively focused on bogus dichotomies such as the US vs. Russia, communists vs. capitalists, the Left vs the Right, Democrats vs Republicans, and on and on…..
Yep. It’s the classic “Rope-A-Dope” move. Keep everybody looking over there, while doing something you don’t want them to see over here.
It seems really odd that nobody has connected the dots. One major crises of some sort after another. Some are natural, but most are not. It all depends on the “spin” that the One World Government media puts on it, as to how everybody reacts & responds. The “power-elite” are the players & the rest of us are just the pawns in their game.
Jim. Can you PLEASE write in a manner that is understandable? Complete with periods, commas and end of sentence punctuation!!! I want to read what you have to say, but this S**T is undefinable!
I think Putin is as evil as Hitler was. He has broken every rule of battle that is humanitarian related. He has broken many rules NATO, including the US, has listed as unacceptable and has received sanctions for it. Personally, I think more sanctions should have been placed sooner and the fact that he is attacking regular citizens, hospitals, and areas that are world wide considered off limits leaves me to believe he does not fear anyone. It is such a shame that someone is that evil. I am sooooo proud of all of the Ukrainians that are fighting that have no experience in even firing a weapon. The are so determined and I am so proud of them. I wonder if people in the US would be that determined or brave if it were us. I somehow doubt it. Instead of criticizing democrats, who seem to be a more peaceful, caring group of people, why don’t you encourage a democratic friend or co-worker to go with you to the gun range to learn to shoot, in case they ever needed it to protect their families. You could also teach them in a slow gentle way to learn how to fight in some sort of hand to hand combat. Instead of being so high handed in your attitude, help your neighbor. You may have to rely on them to help protect you someday. Everyone counts. You can start out pretending it is fun playing games. Don’t overpower them. Gradually they will improve skills. It’s time to be pro-active, not critical. I myself have ordered many items from 4Patriots and I’m a Democrat. I’m realistic about life and what can happen even though I am caring and loving towards others.
Lol western people are so weak when it comes to war. ITS war people….. people either get out of the way or die… simple as that.
“Instead of criticizing democrats, who seem to be a more peaceful, caring group of people,”
are you talking about the “I hope you DIE, unvaxxed deplorables” Democrats?
The ones that keep Canceling anybody who disagrees with whatever POV the Media has told them as their “Talking Points” Democrats? Destroying their lives, getting them fired from their jobs?
You mean the folks that SOMEHOW after Midnight AFTER they tossed out the Voting Observers SUDDENLY FOUND 81 million Biden Votes?
You mean the folks that are determined to teach our children that being BORN White Makes them Racists and they must “Deny their Whiteness” to make amends?
The folks that removed prayer and God out of our schools and Congress?
Matthew 7: 15Beware of false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16By their fruit you will recognize them. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.…
You made your bed, lie in it. Your going to find out that the Socialist-Democrats will not provide you the lifestyle they promised you.
Agree with you on all Michael.
I think you are the brainwashed one. And obviously only care about yourself. How sad!!!
I bet you couldn’t find Ukraine on a map marked in red.
NATO and the USA promised Russia “not one foot east” and for the last 30 years, they have added 14 countries, ALL surrounding Russia.
The 2014 illegal coup staged by the USA and Victoria Nuland was the last straw.
You better smarten up fast dearie because Putin is the good guy here.
Not Zelensky, not Ukraine, not NATO and certainly not the USA.
You are dismissed,
lol Putin isn’t a good guy and neither is Ukraine…. but then again i am sure your long Marine Career will give us plenty of insite.
Sarge is obviously suffering from degenerative brain disorder. Perhaps from spending too many nights closing up the staff NCO club. I suspect he is retired because he was passed over and not recommended for re-enlistment. He reminds me of a Master Sergeant Seagle who was Bn. Sgt. Major of a headquarters battalion because he was too stupid to lead troops. I was the Battalion legal assistant and court reporter. Legal rhymes with Seagle. You can see where this is going. I had to sneak documents for the Bn. CO directly to the Adjutant because if Seagle saw a document where legal was spelled l-e-g-a-l, he would red pencil it. When pointed out to him with the Manual for Courts-Martial wherein legal was not spelled with with a “e”. His rejoinder was usually was that wasn’t what he was marking there were other spelling errors on the page or there was a visible erasure and nothing went to the Old Man with an erasure. This was in the day’s of carbon paper so erasures were a significant pain.
Anyway Gunny reminds me of MSgt Seagle. Brain dead and proud of it.
Excuse me, yes I can find Ukraine on the map. Taught school 34 yrs and have a Masters plus 60. So who is the smart person now. What do you have???
I can find Ukraine on the map. Taught school 34 yrs and have a Masters plus 60. I just am a lot more caring.
You mean the Democrats that have been at the helm of our government on almost every major war in the 20/21 century?
Woodrow Wilson the Progressive party (that’s a laugh). WW1
FDR the Democratic Communist party WW2
Harry Truman Democrat. Korea
Kennedy/ Johnson. Vietnam
This covers the major ones so far
I like what you are saying and I’m not a democrat. Deborah, you should run for some office, you have a voice that should be heard. We as Americans need to stand together and stop the bickering. We are blessed as a country in so many ways. We have lots of problems but we can work through them. We need to start getting along and caring about all americans. There will be other hardships but if we work together we can keep building a greater country for our children.
Voting is pointless the country has removed Elohim from our lives..
The hand of protection Elohim had over this country is over.
Are we beyond the working together point. It seems that the main purpose of Government, Media and entertainment is keeping the hate and division going.
Raven, according to the Elohim, if you don’t take your part in the government, like voting, you are the problem.
the blessings of Elohim are many and great. If the Elohim had abandoned us, there would be nothing left, no life, nada. If you have proof, please let us know. I see no one burning child sacrifices to Moloch, No one is starving to death, no masses of deaths from any plague but dnc approved. No masses of armed troops invading yet.
YWHW has lifted his veil of protection over this country. Go vote and rinse and repeat and feel like you did something every 2 years. Wonder if this repeated action has accomplished anything postive…. oh wait nope. . The vote doesn’t count and your elections are rigged. but please go pretend like you voting and making sure the lesser of evil comments work.
rven, on behalf of all those politicians/sexual predators/thieves/mass murders and so on, I would like to thank you for again defending them and what they see, thanks to you, as a right to do what they want.
Please take the time to do research on the Ukrainian situation. There are several things that just don’t stand up to close scrutiny.
Take the alleged bombing of the maternity hospital. “Only” three people supposedly were killed, including one child.
Why was this hospital not evacuated? Why were the casualties so low if half of the building was obliterated, as was shown on the news? How did the Russians just happen to blow up the half of the complex that just happened to be empty? Coincidence? Divine intervention? A fake bombing staged by the Ukrainian government to put more international pressure on Putin?
We may never know the answers, but we have to ask the questions. There’s no way that only three people would die in an attack like that, not would only a dozen or so people be injured. Something’s off. Why?
I would recommend that everyone watch the movie ” Wag the Dog”, and judge for themselves.
Also really look at the footage of the refugees. Some of the people look familiar, especially if you consider that footage may be from several different angles. I know I’ve seen at least one person three or four times in supposedly different locations. Just saying.
Sadly, the Russian attack on Ukraine is nowhere near as violent, ruthless, and murderous as our attack on Iraq. If you choose to defend your country by fighting from the cover of civilian areas you are sacrificing everything important. What a stupid war the U.S. has brokered.
Were you there judge?
Im in no means justifying the Iraq war, but over 2 years in the middle east, and I dont recall once targeting civilians or apartment buildings.
Matter of fact, our gubment bent over backwards and would not allow US service members to eat or smoke in the open during their ramadan. We even had to STOP convoys during their “call to prayer”
Its easy to be an armchair quarterback at times.
I told my guys whatever happens we will go home.. So i had little issues with doing whatever it took to keep my people safe.
There is also a vast difference between safe and FREE vs safe and detained at levenworth or worse. Or fodder for someone else’s promotion.
I was willing to do anything to keep my guys alive.
Chance’s are if they are shooting from the apartment complex’s… then its no wonder why the MLRS strikes are hitting them. i doubt they are targeting fleeing women and children.
In a defensive posture, life or death, I agree illegal is just a sick bird.
Offensive attack is another thing.
Let me ask you this as a character assessment,
Would you justify the use of a M2 / .50 Cal rifle , ( Anti EQUIPMENT, not anti-personnel ) for firing against enemy combatant paratroopers mid descent, because you or your team were aiming for their LCE / LBE , and NOT the paratrooper?
You can toe the line 364 days 23 hours and 59 minutes.
It only takes one bad decision and one minute to ruin everything else youve worked for.
Light em up… (shoot the equipment for sure if they asked) We had to make the choice before hand to kill kids. (they had kids from 7 to 17 ready to kill you if they got the chance) So you had to make that choice before hand. I still stand by that and won’t lose sleep over it.
There also is a difference between a child muzzie suicide bomber swarming your convoy….. Been there myself in the mountains of Rahbia and sinjar ….. And an enemy paratrooper that hasn’t hit ground yet .
But only one of those 2 is a violation of R.o.E as well as Geneva / Hauge.
if known paratroopers are coming… down … i’ll them light them up. I don’t see the need for a fair fight and let them hit the ground get setup to kill me
Its warfare and i have no issue with it. I would rather fight to win and have my people live then play some Gentleman’s game of regulations. Kill em all and destroy everything. (a good example would be saving private ryan they should of killed that german machine gunner…. Instead they let the morally superior one let him go.
Sorry but I dont live in movie fantasies.
And by your own admission, you witness against yourself that you have no qualms about breaking, or even outright ignoring rules/laws if its for your favor…..
So please answer me this…
Why are you reading Scriptures again?
( Its rhetorical you dont have to answer )
But please feel free to reach out when you get to the parts about obeying the GOVERNMENTS and those in charge of you, provided it does NOT violate Torah. This would apply to the aforementioned R.o.E. from our past as well. I would be happy to discuss them with you.
Elohims Law vs man and i’ll choose him. I don’t see how shooting at troops in the air vs troops on the ground is any different. The rules where made up by godless men who only dreamed of profit and bullshit.
I am willing to protect my Family and I’ll Answer To Elohim if he asks why i did it. I have a duty to my family Friends and people i love to protect them. Its what Elohim Put me on this earth to do.
I don’t have empathy for anything less that.
Judge: I cannot agree, because where Americans make war, we make friends of the people. In fact, most of the nations we’ve been at war with in the last century+ are considered great places for vets to retire because the people want us there. Vietnamese still tell me had LBJ allowed the military to run the war, South Vietnam would have remained free because soldiers helped when they could, where the French and the enemy stole, murdered, and raped. niio
Minus iraq Afghanistan Kuwait and everywhere else. We lost every war after the ww2. We destabilized south America and the Middle East with our idiots in power.
I wouldn’t go on vacation outside of my state much less the country. People hate us for Afghanistan
Exodus, when you mention that the scriptures say we should obey our government, are you suggesting, then, that the American Revolution was a sin and we should repent?
Originally at one point this discussion was about Russia targeting non combatives and someone made the corraltion to Iraq.
I was asking a fellow veteran about breaking Rules of engagement, the same person who is starting a spiritual walk with the creator, who has rules to follow.
The people of the US would respond with extreme force and violence against an invader. At least the ones the Democrats haven’t disarmed thru their “common sense” gun control schemes and magazine bans that do nothing. Shall not be infringed should be an easy statement for even a half wit to understand.
We have 20M vets in our country and 90 plus Million firearms owners.
Please for the more brain dead leftists who read this don’t tell me that you can’t fight a military with a bunch of people with guns. Do some reading first.
As far as “education” is concerned citing degrees is rarely a good thing. Everyone now recognizes that universities and our public Ed system are just indoctrination centers. CRT anyone? Cancel culture instead of discourse? Slogans instead of independent creative thought?
I also have a degree but do not cite it in any conversations.
I have been in 52 countries and have been “educated” about the world by living in it. I have worked in 23 countries. Never ceases to amaze me how people in the US are being brain washed into giving up their rights.
Anyone who can read or just stare at the MSM with drool running down their chins now see “gun control” on display in the Ukraine. Look at them passing or real “assault rifles” instead of the semi auto firearms we have. Pretty hard to defend Brandon and his policies now.
The leftist/Elitist/globalists want us all disarmed to place us in slavery/servitude.
Not an attack on you at all here Deborah. If you like what the people of the Ukraine are doing in their fight against Russia it would be hard to rationalize gun control in any form here in the US.
You’re funny…. most american’s are to asleep and wouldn’t get outside the house. Very few would even be of any resistance… The american public is just weak pathetlic with no will to fight for anything other then “the mc rib at mcdonalds.”
Deborah, are you just ignorant or do you actually mean “…democrats, who seem to be a more peaceful, caring group of people…” even though there is plenty of solid unedited video proof they are not. Please explain how BLM / Antifa “peaceful protests” where they looted, burned, and destroyed businesses, and actively pursued, harassed, and often violently attacked innocent people is in anyway acceptable and indicative of being a “peaceful, caring group of people”. Your Libtard logic and excuse making is faulty.
dude you can’t even walk out of your house without getting winded…. you won’t do a damn thing and i know you miss the marine or whatever department of the navy you called yourself…. those long hot showers with your boyfriends er…. fellow marines.
Perhaps you, as an individual, consider yourself kind but Democrats have been shown statistically to donate to charity at a much lower percentage than Republicans. I am a soft-spoken person but when some Democrats I know found that I support life in the womb and a few other conservative beliefs, I was screamed at by the Democrats in the room. I skipped staying for the remainder of the meal as they were all so very loud. Those Democrats showed their “kindness” to me in many other ways.
You mentioned that you were a teacher. In middle school, my teacher told the class that those of my heritage (northern European) looked Japanese, I raised my hand to note that I did not look Japanese. She told me to shut up. As I learned to read at home with phonics instead the official school method of sight-reading, I read everything in sight so I would once in a while catch more misinformation given out by my teachers through the years.
You are to be commended for being forthright and stating your beliefs but be aware that we all can see that each vote for a Democrat has hastened the downturn of our country and all the other countries that depend upon us. Your voting for the decline of my lifestyle and that of my children and even grandchildren is not going to be looked upon favorably.
Deborah: How’s this for evil, 9,000 Tarahumara starved to death in a planned famine, being used a guinea pigs for Monsanto. Was that evil? Dems were in power and dems ignored it, as did the lamestream news media, which they own. Most of the women and small children found in the US are American India. In dem states, slavery is common. Most of the 400,000 slaves in the US are American Indian. Know why? Because hitler hates us almost as much as he hated Jews and Christians. Mongrels and Jew lovers and worse. Hitler, Joe Kennedy, and FDR were fast friends. That never changed and Kennedy, according to his biography, begged FDR to declare the US a nazi nation. When FDR refused, Kennedy tried to blackmail him. FDR laughed and said be patient, it will happen.
You call putin a nazi. Is he? Stalin was–nazism is elitist communism. What makes up a nazi? Elitist communist. New Age. Vegetarianism. Animal rights. Butch gay rights. Atheism. Earth is man’s only god so worship Mother Nature. Greed. Hate. Rapists. Murder for fun and profit. Pedophilia. Slavery. Terrorism. Propaganda.
Which takes us to hitler’s love of Muslims. He stated on more than one occasion Islam should have taken Europe. Then Europe would have been pure macho and women would know their place. The second most popular book in terrorist nations like Iran, is Mein Kampf. Why? Because all of them had gone Nazi during WWII. Hitler sent about a half-million SS and Gestapo into the world to refuge nations. Stalin took a lion’s share. Franco, a nazi, shipped them into all Hispanic nations, which led to Argentina becoming a nazi nation till a few decades ago. And those Muslim nations? Each one got hundreds of SS and Gestpo to teach and train in war. Truman, here, allowed in possibly tens of thousands of nazis and never blinked an eye. The dnc is called America’s nazi party for a reason, they went nazi under the kalnsman, Tuman.
I thought your name, red, was more about red-state or republicanism. Thanks for sharing that you’re American Indian.
If the web page allowed me to give five thanks for your great post, I would have – so here’s the other four: Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
One thing to clear up, though. You’re right that most of the slaves in the US today are American Indians but, to be more specific, they’re Mexican American, Central-American American, and even South-American American Indians. The Democrats love slavery and invite the Mexican drug cartels to bring their slaves to the United States and enslave others who are coming into the United States. These slaves include little children, teen-age children, and women.
Many of the remaining slaves are Chinese – another country with which the Democrats are in love and they do all they can to bring in more slave labor.
When they can’t force historical-style slavery, for instance with poor Black-Americans, they do it under the table by keeping them uneducated and in poverty, dependent on the Democratic plantation for survival.
Dale: It’s actually short for my nick-name from dems, red nigger.:) Right now, Blacks for Trump are busy and they’re a fast growing movement. Tatum report, Candice Owens, and others are all blasting houseboy blacks with facts, the dnc is America’s party of division and racism. AKA, the slavery party. When Trump spoke about stopping slavery in the US, the slavery party shrieked and started a war against him that’s still on-going. He reduced slavery in the US by 20%, and now it’s climbing again. niio
Interestingly enough, a lot of the old nazis in South America are dying and all of their memorabilia is being sold by the younger generation at the flea markets. I have a couple of relatives down there and told me of the large amount they saw for sale.
The worst sin that will follow all of those who voted for the Dems and the Rinos, is the slavery that they have propagated. With open borders, child trafficking is at an all time high. Each person that has a “D” after their name bears the sin of facilitating the torture and death of each child sold to be used by the demented ones.
For all the children bought and sold at the border, snatched off the street, quietly disappearing into the foster care system or even sold by their evil parents themselves, the Dems bear the biggest responsibility.
I agree with you regarding the evil of FDR. He sold off several countries to the soviets during the Yalta Conference.
This article assumes that Putin would nuke Ukraine first. Probably not. He will aim his missiles, along with North Korea and possibly China jumping on his coattails, at the other world powers. Then he can just walk in and take whatever he wants from neighboring countries. Why not? If you’re going to push the button, might as well make it count by taking out the countries that have the power to retaliate huge if you decide to nuke Ukraine.
him the most grief over his current actions.
I’m afraid you are right. In a fight with more than one opponent, you need to figure out who is the leader & who the lieutenants are. Then quickly & mercilessly take them out in that order. The followers will cut and run, or bow down. That was the point with “First-strike” capability, then came “MAD” Mutual Assured Destruction, to try and keep everybody’s finger off the button. Do you think that Russia REALLY DESTROYED “ALL” their nukes? I think that the reason that Putin isn’t worried, is because he thinks, he holds all the high cards. He is a Thug, he doesn’t bluff, he just wades in swinging. In his mind, RULES BE DAMED, you either WIN OR DIE.
lol Nobody cares if you take out the officers in a American military
lol down voted… come on now everyone knows the NCO’s are the ones leading the troops… Officers go file paperwork.
Think about this for a bit:
If Putin was losing terribly and facing a war crimes trial and execution soon thereafter, do you think that facing death he won’t take as many out before he dies?
Putin WILL launch nukes if he is in danger of being tried for war crimes and subsequent death.
He would have nothing left to lose.
Desperate people do desperate things.
Bible says God will destroy the Earth by fire in the end of days.
Presumably a NUCLEAR FIRE.
All the prepping in the world won’t help. It will just prolong your suffering.
Look at Chernobyl – The stay times there can be as little as a few minutes (Jeremy Wade).
And it will be that way for 1,000’s of years.
And that is not even a nuclear blast’s worth of contamination either.
Hiroshima and Nagasaki are both thriving cities today. Rebuilding Hiroshima began in 1949.
It still amazes me how so many people go off anything Democrat, and on the current leaders. It was Trump that tried to overthrow the government along with all his cronies. He is one of the worst Presidents, racist bigoted sexist men I can remember being on this earth in modern times!
I am not saying something off some dark website, but just stating some of things he has done!
racist no… sexist not really anti gun yes…. and he did ok but he was a spender…..
Gee. The worst president? Lowest unemployment ever in all demographic groups, falling quickest in minorities. Increased wages (fastest in the lower economic groups) while keeping inflation low. Energy-independent and a net exporter of energy for the first time since the 1950s. $2.15/gallon gasoline. Reduced illegal immigration to manageable levels, and on a path to virtually eliminate it. Moved our embassy in Israel to Jerusalem after US promising to do so for 25 years. Engineered the Abraham Accords, normalizing relations between Israel and many of its Arab neighbors. Revitalized the US military. Revitalized NATO by shaming our NATO partners into paying their fair share, i.e., what they had promised to do but had not done. Increased pride in being American. That racist, bigoted, sexist man?
If you want a racist, bigoted, sexist president, I refer you to Woodrow Wilson, who segregated the military, fired all the black federal employees, invited the Ku klux Klan to march down Pennsylvania Avenue by the thousands, and put in jail newspaper editors that disagreed with him.
I’ll take a few mean tweets to get the country back to where we were on January 19, 2021.
Exactly. DJT was not perfect, but he was miles ahead of Obama, Clinton or Bush.
Wilson was Public Enemy #1 with the Income Tax and the Fed Reserve.
#F Woodrow Wilson – Another democrat
Overthrow the government? LOL LOL If you think the incident in January was a planned overthrow then you probably think 5 year olds designed your computer…get a clue. It was a peaceful demonstration that a very SMALL percentage of folks there, probably less than 1% actually got caught up in the excitement, were egged on, or were caused by FBI or other agitators ( funny how there a many pics of certain bearded individuals, that for some reason have NEVER been posted on regular media to be tracked down as agitators.) Labelling a demonstration as an attempted overthrow is malicious and evil and has caused much harm to many folks that were just hanging out.
Wait a minute. I thought Putin was responsible for Trump being in office. Have you already forgotten the demonokrait’s loud proclamations about Russia interfering in the 2016 election so that Trump was elected instead of the anointed queen?
Sounds as if your memory banks have short circuited and you have amnesia.
Anti gun, not really.
The entire Democratic Party is based on skin color . It always has been. Please do some research.
Did Donnie have some mean tweets? Sure he was attacked every single day of his presidency.
Biden gets a free pass from the press. So obvious even you can see it Jimbo.
Looks like the Dems are trying to pass currency controls (600bucks is what Brandon shot for) to mind everyone’s business.
No prosecutions by the Dems on Antifa or BLM, organizations that caused. I’ll ions in damage. But the MSM calls Jan 6th an insurrection? Again do some research here. During our last “insurrection” there were 9 million Southerners and in the “insurrection before that there 2.5M of which only 3-15% took it to the British. This last “insurrection” had 2000 supporters or .000006 percent of the population. Perhaps some melodramatics at play calling it an “insurrection”? In searching thru history I cannot find anything close to this low of a number being called an “insurrection”.
Stop being a lamb being led to slaughter and “thinking “ with your emotions and “feelings”. Do some actual critical thinking sir .
anti gun yes…. for sure. much like most republicans.
What exactly can you point to, including a link to any relevant, reliable, proven news article, that supports these claims of racism and sexism? Democratic talking points aside, I have not personally seen any hard evidence of either.
If this were truly the case, wouldn’t there have been dozens and dozens of people who would have come forward to support these theories? Where are the former employees, passed over and harassed at his companies? Where are the random witnesses who personally saw these incidents? Where are the ex-wives to state that he was a cruel and exploitive sob who made their lives misery? When a man’s exes can’t find negative things to say about him to screw up a political run, there can’t be much animosity there. His kids all seem to adore him – you don’t get that if a man is cruel and abusive to his family or his household staff. Kids see all, and the scars are obvious.
The fact that NOBODY credible was trotted out on CNN or MSNBC, nor quoted on the front page of the NYTimes or WAPO, leads the thinking person to believe that there is nothing to these scurrilous rumors but a lot of politically motivated hot air. Those few sad women of dubious sanity and clearly looking for a payout that were trotted out were victims of the DNC propaganda program, not Trump, and their allegations fell apart like wet toilet paper under close and objective scrutiny.
If you believe everything that the MSM tells you, why are you here except to troll? If you’re here to legit try to learn something useful, then try asking a few constructive questions, instead of complaining about Trump and (like others who have been whining) complaining about not being spoonfed predigested information about life skills and survival techniques.
One precious skill that you will need to survive even “normal” life is to be able to tell when you are being lied to. Everyone has an agenda, and you may not be relevant to it. Don’t think that the government loves you unconditionally and wants you to be happy, well-fed and safely snuggled down in bed with your teddy bear. The government at best looks at you (like all of us) as a number. A cog in the machine. You are NOT special. You ARE replaceable. Never forget that. You aren’t even needed for your vote anymore.
Those who DO care about you are equally at risk of being deemed expendable. So smarten up for their sake.
LOL! Another idiot who has taken the CNN bait, hook, line and sinker. Sexist? Maybe. He’s an old man. I have known MANY old men who are or were. But racist and bigoted? Show me proof, fool. You’ll be just like every other democrat and disappear when called out for your dumb ass comments.
Wow Jimbo you can turn off MSNBC and CNN. Your brainwashing is complete.
jimbo: that’s easy. The dnc is America’s nazi party. the dems spent generations breeding hate for the wealthy, and now all we see is them breaking the law to suck up more wealth. After all, that’s all they worship, wealth, and their high priests are soros and wyss.
You know, trump’s old girlfriend, a black, almost fell over laughing when she was told he was a racist. Me, too. DNC propaganda strikes again, LOL.
Would you care to elaborate on your statements?
Anything. Really, something to substantiate your claims.
How about one of msm’s favorite lines…70,000 lies, he lied 70,000 times but they couldn’t come up with even one. Can you?
MTern: who are you posting to?
Well reasoned and well written article … the subsequent comments not so much
When I came home from Vietnam the war protesters spit on our uniforms.
Where are all those “righteous war protesters” now?
Welcome home and thank you for your service. Some of us appreciated you then and do now.
You got that right. And I would like to add my thanks alongside yours.
D: Where are they? Reads like a who’s who on the dnc. niio
Card carrying Democrats…and mostly teachers and politicians.
Regarding the nuclear map, Information regarding salt mine locations and the ability to utilize them as shelters are not accurate. Many have been flooded because it is more economical to extract the salt using water than by mining. Also, many have been flooded due to fracture of the salt dome walls. I know of only one in the greater Houston area that is not flooded and would still be too dangerous to use as a shelter. This information makes me wonder about other articles from askaprepper.
Yeah… LOTS of BAD ADVICE on this site.
I only got here to buy “The Lost Ways”.
The site is mis-info city and filled with stupid people posing as preppers.
So is Lost Ways worth buying?
I’m really not pulling a felicia, but this stupid post is the last straw. Don’t waste your time here unless you want to read a handful of people argue every post.
Best of luck to you with your preparations.
Salt mines are often used as storage for LNG.
One thing for sure, there are no salt mines where you can go hide in time for a nuclear event. They’re all owned by someone and, almost certainly,. someone with security protections in place. If you live within 10 to 15 minutes of a salt mine, that’s 10 to 15 minutes in a scenario where everyone around you is thinking the same thing (i.e., roads completely blocked) then you might be allowed in if we have been warned by the government that missiles are on their way. Maybe the only way in is if the security has left to care for, or die with, their own families.
Salt mines are not the answer to nuclear war. The answer, if you can manage it, is at least a small shelter in the ground or more concrete above ground than I could afford. Other than that, there’s little you can do except to hope for the odds and chance of avoiding blast and radiation streams.
I prepare for if I survive the first 72 hours. Surviving the next year is also going to be tough because you may not know if you have cancer or other radiation related illness.
If you survive 72 hours, treat every future hour as though it was your last. Treasure the moments, treat your family with love and care. Treat others, to the extent they’ll reciprocate, the same. Maybe, just maybe, you’ll love long enough to have a part in rebuilding civilization. If your children survive, they may see a return to a normal life – other than that third eye.
It is not a bad thing to prepare for emergencies, floods, fire, tornadoes, conventional war, financial collapse, Martian attack. All responsible adults should prepare for emergency situations. However, realistically prepping to survive a nuclear war is futile at best. What preparing for nuclear war will do is prepare you for other survivable emergencies..
If there is a nuclear attack today, tomorrow, next year I’m fairly certain I’m toast. The only thing that really bothers me is that the people that have nuke proof long term shelters are the people of the present administration who are trying to destroy the country anyway.🤯
If only Stanislov Petrov was behind the button. Sadly, He’s gone.
I only recently read that whole story. Very interesting!
Following this site for a few years now, but what I DO find amazing is how “preppers or survivalist” are going to weather a nuclear war…sorry kids NOT going to happen. And if it does happen that you survive the first year, you may wish you hadn’t. Nukes for all their faults have done one this well, preventing the next World War. Wars will come and go, and you can prep for economic downturn, natural catastrophy or an “invasion” but nukes? No.
Hold my beer!
If a Russian nuclear war happens, and you live on any of the major landmasses, bend over and kiss your ass goodbye. There is no survival plan for mass destruction.
Thanks for the fear porn. Didn’t work here, I’m comfy af.
Well not really, If its a limited strike to major cities… You would be surprised that your people like yourself would be dead.. But real American preppers would be OK living in the country.
Well, you and your god have fun once we’re all gone. The good news is there won’t be any more voting. Be sure to stock a bunch of iodine or your kids will have 2 headed babies.
Do you not realize just how ludicrous this posting is? The purpose is to get people arguing and make money from the advertising when we each access the post.
Having a kenworth run headlong into a Mack is roughly this nonsense is.
And yet, you have posted what, five times as to how lousy the site is, how lousy the comments are, and how we’re all stupid AF.
Yet here YOU are, still complaining….because you want to see how many upvotes you get?
Do YOU have ANY constructive comments to share? Or questions about the topic?
Raven, that depends on a lot of factors. Winds, for one. is it raining? I live 50 miles from the closest military base and yep, we will have to watch in case of a strike there. BTW, my useless desert is producing a ton of peas, loose leaf cabbage, kohlrabi, sunchokes, radishes, just picked more tomatoes from the potted plants, chilis, and would be garbanzo beans and fava beans had I planted them. Oh and calendula blooms. Canna is doing well and already in bloom. in 10 months we’ll thin the plants to use the roots for starch and the seeds as a grain. took the last lemon in January, but the dog ate the last of the kumquats. the garlic is tall and already beginning to die back. tons of green onions in different beds. the strawberries will bloom soon. By time it gets hot enough to kill pollen in chilis and tomatoes, yardlong beans will be feeding us, figs will be getting ripe. There’ll be tons of nopalitos to cut and brine, then can. July, mesquite is getting ripe, the apples are picked, cherries are long gone, jujube are getting ripe fast, and just too much more to tell.
Ms Kitty, actually, this is the first complaint about content.
I have great respect for many of the regulars, and look forward to sage advice. I’ve taken notes from many writers on many topics. Even had a few cordial conversations.
True, I’ve allowed raven to get under my skin a time or two, but he’s really good at that. I need to up my serenity game. But this particular topic, presented in this manner, is despicable. The only purpose is to frighten people. I have no fear of mortality any longer, but seeing others pushed into the shadow of a war is wrong. And I don’t give a flying f how many likes or not likes anyone has. Especially me.
Going forward, if you put the name of the person you are responding to at the top of your post, it can avoid a lot of confusion and ruffled feathers. Especially since some of the threads can get quite long.
The topic of nuclear warfare really can’t be dismissed as “fear porn” in our current state of affairs internationally. Granted, we’ve strayed waaay off topic in the comments, but it still should be discussed, if only to find out what is and is not plausible and practicable.
Frankly, I don’t see the average person being able to survive for long after a direct nuclear hit anywhere near them, and Raven makes a valid point that urban centers are more likely to be targeted than Swan Lake, Mississippi. Areas near attractive military targets are not going to be safe either, nor those near infrastructure like refineries, power plants, etc.
You also need to be aware of the prevailing winds in an area that may carry fallout for quite some distance.
All of this information can be found on multiple sites, as well as several that show the likelihood of a nuclear attack and the radiation fallout patterns.
But maybe that’s why we veered onto the political lane. This is old hat to many people who remember the Cold War, and a lot to deal with for younger people who don’t remember the films and safety drills from school. (Like hiding under your desk or crouching in the hallway will really help much.)
Things have deteriorated rapidly, and a lot of people didn’t have a hot war on their radar, because the threat of mutual destruction kept people more or less rational. That’s all changed in a short period, and everyone’s freaked out about it to some degree. So we argue about stuff that happened over a year ago, because the president we got gives the appearance of being weak and incompetent and we’re all scared.
A lot of people will disagree with that, but they’re either stupid or whistling past the graveyard. Any sane person should be scared – there’s a real, valid threat to American soil for the first time in years. 9-11 was bad enough, but Isis didn’t have long range nukes. Personally, I think Putin is just crazy or ruthless enough to drop a nuke on NYC or Washington, just to prove a point. The Biden admin has been making enough threats and accusations that they might push Putin over the edge, thinking he has no choice. And Lindsay Graham saying we should assassinate Putin is about the most inflammatory thing that I have ever heard a politician say about a foreign leader – what in hell was he thinking?
It seems in many ways that our government is pushing for an active war, which raises all sorts of questions about why they’re so gung ho about it. Does this somehow fit in with the whole “One World Order” stuff we’ve been hearing about, or the “Green New Reset”?
It sucks that we can’t trust our own government to look after our best interests anymore, doesn’t it?
Relax Karen the store Management will not care about your devil worshiping ways..
raven, don’t revert. I have noted that those who aim fingers and condemn are most often the very ones who will be condemned.
Kathy, is “sedai” in reference to the “Wheel of Time” series? I read those long ago, and remember a young guy named Rand Al’Thor and a couple of his companions from a small village were located and then recruited by a Sedai in violation of the policies of the White Tower. I think the author was Jordan?
We are told to call out evil. Her kind is why American has fallen with demonic worship
I suspect that in the event the present conflict turns nuclear the exchange will be to take out the electronics via EMP as opposed to surface or low altitude nuclear weapons. Even a madman realized that if the world is contaminated with radioactive contamination everyone loses. How much better to use fewer detonations and minimize nuclear contamination and allow advanced countries to self destruct when all their electronics fail to work.
To take out the U.S., Southern Canada and Northern Mexico would only need one nuclear device to detonate. To take out enough areas to inflict similar damage would need many more nuclear devices with a longer time in the air subjecting them to greater chance of of being destroyed en route.
My assessment is that we will have simultaneous attacks from China and the fat boy all launching EMP type weapons. Russia will also take out any NATO countries and NATO wannabes.
The Chinese curse has come true. We are living in interesting times.
…300 KM’s of altitude and we will not be having this conversation LCC…
LCC as you are well aware but some are not a 1.4 megaton device or an EMP weapon will do it. The 1.4 megaton weapon was tested during the starfish prime test and that is when the EMP was detected. That is when scientists first really started to grasp it.
Now with EMP weapons and a coordinated cyber attack as well as perhaps physical attacks, the power grid could be taken out or severely crippled.
Peter Pry has authored a number of papers on this. Robert Lamb, Arthur Bradley and Bob Hall are others.
Some dry but interesting reading.
Currently Russia, China, North Korea are suspected of having HEMP weapons which do almost no damage from a nuclear weapons perspective, but emit serious amounts of energy, are a reality. Currently nothing is being done on a national level to harden the us against this type of attack.
With the globalists pulling the strings as well as a utility industry that regulates itself (NERC and FERC) nothing will get done. The elites have protected themselves.
I hope and pray that many readers are doing the same thing.
Please for your families sake do some of your own research people. Some things may still work. Some things will not. Try not to depend on the grid. Buy less house than you can afford and invest in yourself and your family. Kids CAN actually share a room and still turn out well adjusted. Seems stupid having to point this out! Kids can live without all of the disposable plastic toys. KIDS CANNOT LIVE without food and water.
Just stepped off of my soap box
My guess is that the utility transformers and other equipment we are buying from China is infected with malware or a kill switch making their task easier.
You are right on the self destruction comment. Cut off the electronics & a great many people will go insane because they can’t function without their devices. It is sad to think about how many people will starve to death, because google and their peeps aren’t there to tell them which way to twist a bread-tie to open a loaf of bread. And there is no common-sense in them to say, just tear the plastic bag open.
One EMP between NYC. & DC. would take out Wall St. on one end & the Electronic Military structure on the other end. Not to mention cutting off communication from the so-called government leaders, to the rest of the country.
Like it or not people. I’m, in my opinion, just being real.
Just watched the 1966 comedy “The Russians are Coming, The Russians are Coming”.
Classic slapstick, but what a telling picture of how crazy people get in a crisis, with rumors flying, accusations being hurled, panic, and loss of pretty much all normal, reasonable – also kind – behavior.
I don’t have much hope that people who demonize anyone who doesn’t share their political beliefs will regain their balance and common sense.
But I will never stop hoping and praying that cool heads will prevail and that basic, innate goodness will finally triumph – at least in most people.
The American propaganda on this war is so relentless, one sided, and emotional that I’m afraid the Government is preparing the voters for U.S. entry into the fighting. That will be the 1st warning you have of an impending nuclear strike.
I live in the helicopter transit area between the Pentagon and points South and West(Ft. Meyer, Ft. Belvoir and more). One helicopter= one General helping a pilot get his hours by providing taxi service. Two helicopters is communication. Many helicopter flights scare the beJesus out of me and send me looking for large mountainous physical barriers between me and DC. Before Covid, I drove twice a day past Pentagon over Memorial Bridge into/out of DC. People here will know.
Excellent point about the helos.
Does anyone live near a military base, and have you noticed any increase in either activity or security?
Has anyone actively serving had a leave cancelled, or gone for specialized training? Or one of your loved ones? Anyone in the reserves been notified that they may be called up soon?
Obviously, don’t compromise sensitive information, but it’s good information to give us an idea if something is imminent.
Lots of flight activity over & around NE. Florida, year. HMMM. Makes one wonder, doesn’t it?
I remember the Minute-Man Missile sites in Kansas when I was young.
Miz Kitty, Davis-Monthan is busier than normal. Not real hard yet to get on base to use the PX.
I just picked up two steel military grade drums for 10 each. Now, he has them listed for 15, but definitely worth it. The lids seal in place by a bolt. They were used for ordinances and are clean. Gotta get one in the garage to put the maize in, the other for beans and sacks of chia. Beans are selling fast and it’s hard to find 50lbs sacks now. Carne seca (dried meat) is now 34 bucks a pound. We need to buy gallon buckets of lard and more chelated garden zinc. niio
You know, it’s funny. I first checked out this sight with the honest belief that there just might be a few tips and tricks that I could add to my prepping and survival toolbox.
Now, I come here for the entertainment. The same handful of experts, agnostics, religious zealots and self proclaimed experts on every imaginable topic – continue to push their personal opinions and agendas at lightening speed – no matter the subject, they are armed and stand ready to wow and amaze you with their masterful insight and superior intellect .
Do not let your heart be troubled, this handful of self proclaimed experts will set you straight on all possible worldly topics and scenarios.
With one possible exception – real world survival experience.
To the serial experts — Please don’t stop any time soon – this is entertainment at it’s finest!
Can’t wait for the next topic!
So do you have any relevant observations, or skills you would like to share? Or did you just want to get a nice little prechewed package shoved down your throat?
Many of the people here have been living the life for longer than some of us have been alive, and if you read the posts you can see that the reason it’s gone astray is that there IS NO GOOD WAY TO SURVIVE A NUCLEAR ATTACK!
You can seal yourself into your basement for a month, but what will you find when you eventually have to leave your bunker? Short answer – nothing but death. Quick from the explosion itself or getting shot by another “survivor”. Slow from radiation poisoning, dehydration or starvation. No trees or growing things. No animals. No clean water. Other sick and starving people who will see you as a threat or dinner. (The ultimate game of “Kill, fuck or eat”.) Radiation poisoning eating you alive from the bones out.
An EMP would create chaos, death and destruction, but not on that level. You might be able to walk away from that, but you need to do your own research. Don’t depend on a website to answer your questions. Surf the web. Go to a library. Ask people who are old enough to have lived through the Cold War.
You need to do the work, on your own, or you won’t be able to survive anything. I’m not being mean, just stating a fact. This website is for stimulating conversation and your mind to think about the tangents as well as the main topic. Those who don’t get that don’t get the benefits and get left behind.
I hope you and others will get it.
LOL, good post, Miz Kitty! niio
While this is very important to know, please understand word is, this is a made-up war. Yes, it’s real. Yes, it’s deadly. But, it’s cover for a great many dirty things liberals are trying to pull. Dems do tings from under cover. Just one example, they used WWI to cover Prohibition. They made the Great Depression worse by claiming to want to help people. How many understand why the dems are kissing ayatollah bootie, again? do you even remember about Afghanistan and our people there? What about the southern border? How many terrorists are walking armed to the teeth over the border? 25% of so-called refugees from Syria were men of military age. do we know where they are, or are we all caught up in following the magician’s magic wand. niio
I never in a million years thought I would be living in Orwell’s “1984”. Where you can’t trust anything the government tells you, anything in the news.
This is the worst I’ve ever seen for the country being divided by race, economics, politics. I’ve talked to people older than I am, they say the same thing.
Now, TPTB want to unite us, not for the sake of our own country, but another.
This site is truly the laughing stock of the Prepper/Survival
blogosphere.It reminds me a lot of the Doomsday Preppers
series.I think we always hoped that the next episode would not
have stupid people saying and doing stupid things.But it never
happened.Just like here.
There are valuable nuggets of information once in a while but
usually the lunatic fringe rants shout down anyone that is not as
batshit crazy as they are.
If the nut cases commented the way that they do on any reputable site they would be history and the better for it.
why, yup, chucky, this site sure is stoopid. Must be why you’re here, to natter girly comments like yours. 🙂
Oh Chuck you’re so silly 🤪
Holy chit. I come here on occasion to learn something new, to see what others are doing to prep. Ever since I did my thing in Vietnam as a US Marine, I kinda keep my own council. I consider myself a prepper lite. You know, 2 years worth of stored mylar bagged food, water sterilizing equipment since I live near a creek, duel purpose camping equipment, plenty guns and ammo, air rifles for small game, ect.ect,, so yeah, prepper lite. BUT, reading the comments on this article, I realize there are some foaming at the mouth crazy, paranoid people commenting on here. Sooo i’m going to quitely ease out the back door and just keep to myself. Good luck to you sane preppers and I wouldn’t put too much stock in what some ahh, many on here say.
I am Semper Fi to America
I just saw Chucks post after I posted mine…so he is probably going to quitely ease out that back door with me…
ya, that’s how biden leaves. out the back door. he can’t handle it eather…
Sometimes it is best to sit back and see just, who is going to shoot, or shit, or run and hide. I’ll bring the lawn chairs. lol
HOO RA .
PS: Thank you for what you did over there, for us over here. You have my un-ending support.
I was responding to Devil Dog. Not red ant
You guys really need to stop watching the MSM. The narritive you’re conveying isn’t the whole truth. The CIA propped up the so called Democratically elected puppet goverenment in the Ukraine in 2014 Putin hasn’t done anything to threaten the United States.
Stop the political rhetoric, it’s not your job especially if your pushing YOUR personal bias.
Let’s just help people prep for the unexpected stop the fear mongering.
William: From the day he entered the KGB, putin has been a threat to the US. From the days of Viking ‘refugees’ from Asia, he had a hundred generations behind him all bragging Russia is mean to own the world. It’s been pounded into him from birth. Call it an obsession. Right now, Trump speaks against him, and putin respects Trump. Russians are demanding he step down. He’s desperate, and desperate people tend t do strange things. His major mistake was believing the dnc gave him permission to invade. all this war is, is a cover for something the dems are doing and to take our attention away from the flood at the border, as well as dems growing wealthy manipulating the stock market. They call it a right. niio
The Left is expert at misdirection just as they are in selling a lie and ignoring truth.
In the 1980’s, I read “The Russians” by Hendrick Smith. It is a long read but it gives a very good picture of the traditional Russian mindset and how it has been repeated through the centuries.
In 1991, many of the small countries that the soviets had taken, gained their freedom but the soviet military did not leave those countries until several years later and even then, they were destructive and breaking everything they left behind. The broke all the equipment they left behind, even to point of pouring concrete down the toilets. When the soviets had control of those countries, the soviets always pushed the locals to the back of any line as they would get the best cuts of meat at the store, etc. Those that follow putin and revere him, wish for those days of their elitism to return.
You are right about putin thinking the dnc gave him permission. My guess is that some cash exchanged hands.
Sage: billions exchanged hands. Putin as head of the government is in charge of their oil. Soros demanding we close down our own oil was made to order for Russia. When that happened, Russian warrants against Hunter biden were dropped. Now, of course, putin has indictments against the biden crime family and a dozen other of soros’ puppets.
Yet, putin did a lot of great things. He booted gays out of the military and the suicide rate dropped. He gave Russia a reason to survive. He was furious when the election was stolen from Trump. Now, word is he’s dying of cancer. Drugs may be the reason he lost his mind and trusted soros’ puppets.
But, one huge mistake was to create a state religion. Russian orthodox patriarchs got everything they asked for, when putin should have booted them out because they bowed to the USSR. I’m not saying Vladimir Dracula did when they turned traitor…Maybe. 🙂 niio
There’s a record of the payments that the Russians made to the Bidens with zero present-term return value when the payments were made. Now we know what it was they were buying for their cash.
The situation in Ukraine looks like an orchestrated conflict between the highly corrupted “States” of Russia and Ukraine, with a lot of manipulation from outside sources, so ask yourself, do you support a lesser evil over an even worse evil? Should they be left to their own devices and hope the evil doesn’t spread? Please don’t believe the misinformation and propaganda being pushed by the media, and also from a lot of posters on blogs like this one. No matter what happens in Ukraine, it has already, and will continue, to affect the rest of the world.
I posted this on another thread but it’s appropriate here:
How many people have considered what they will do if their home and the majority of their supplies are destroyed in a fire/wildfire, flood, tornado, major storm, or hostile actions sometime after a SHTF scenario? You may be left with only whatever you have managed to salvage and forage, and the knowledge and skills you have learned in preparation, so please think about and plan in advance what you might have to do if you literally lose everything.
Putin is a cold war intelligence services warrior whose early command included running both all of the KGB and Stasi in East Germany simultaneously while then under a diplomatic cultural cover, we are told.
Some generals of the era were aware of the means to collapse the US Contiguous lower 48 into the Earth’s mantle using strikes into Yellowstone and certain strategic areas.
Is Putin of that mind, or would he rather preserve the wheat and corn and cattle regions as well as the Great Lakes fresh water supplies for China of possible?
Due to the Communist-Socialist traitors of the DNC and RNC RINOS, the USA has been chemically neutralized by the COVID-19 Graphene and other toxic poison shots. Some 150,000,000 alone could be 5G and flu shot (or other injection) eliminated by those within the US by design following the John Deagle / Rockefeller Foundation projection scheme for 2025.
If Putin strikes, he needs only take out DC and NYC and perhaps any designated new capitol scheme location under Continuity of Government. Other locations might be Denver and Colorado Springs. That’s 4 nukes. Then there is the overheard EMP to take out radii of 17 miles each, overlapping the entire US lower 48. That’s 6.
He preserves the lands spied by China for INVASION TAKEOVER for the grain and cattle production, and the Great Lakes fresh waters for siphoning to send to China.
Then all he need do is sit back a few months, and let the US self-destruct its civilization after the EMP strikes, because under Clinton, the use of Submarine launch codes were removed from the vessel commanders access, and by spies within codes and authorization to launch will be denied to the land based ICBM which have to be remote tasked targets that will never be given them, except perhaps both US Coastlines. .
Under Obama, a proposed treaty to count only US bombers, launchers, subs and conventional pieces as nukes sent those traitors on a let’s destroy actual US Nukes campaign, so that the military could count down actual nukes to nothing, one day, and have empty silos and aircraft and so forth as its phantom nuclear arsenal count, and the USA is helpless. Russia did not have to count such, the USA alone, by treaty language the illegal Obama Admin of Communists, did that.
Look at Trevor Loudon’s trail of Communist connections with the illegal to be in office Obama Admin at the time (Leo Szlizrd, KGB, with David Axelrod…David Cantor with Obama in Obama’s 1st Chief of Staff job in Chicago).
Those who are globalists at the top, call themselves as exo-centralists. They operate outside of the Supreme Law of the US Constitution, and consider any perversity they commit (sexual or otherwise) as if a strength. That’s what runs and operates in DC know, and their criminal insanity should be apparent to anyone. Include a probable likelihood of a precursor release of Ukrainian Level 5 bio-weapons upon the USA and blaming the Russians to excuse a US on Russia 1st strike from Arctic and off the coast of Norway Waters US subs, against Moscow, etc, while forgetting the Ural and Siberian Continuity of Government EQUIVALENTS that Russia in the Cold War has set up for a loss of Moscow by a hypothetical successful 1st strike by the US or NATO.
Those within the Pentagon and DC establishment already lost us any war with Russia or China BEFORE it even begins. WE THE PEOPLE are THEIR enemy, and the war to destroy us began long ago and went operational with Warp Speed, only most in the US are still oblivious to it, because the medical murders are called the means to a cure. But define what “cure” is to an exo-centralist who hates the US and desires life and death POWER.
Some of the elites have taken preemptive measures to protect themselves. The Bush cabal has purchased several hundreds acres over one of the world’s largest aquifers in South America.
Lin, the elites may be able to get to their “sanctuaries”, but will they be able to protect them from all-comers? The One World Order promoters and manipulators are ignoring one fact of life on this Earth – no matter where they go, no one is untouchable.
The radii of my immediate previous post should be 1700 miles. Sorry for the typo.
My daily bitch… 34 cents this week. Yes we’re up to 3.98.9…
I would be happy with that instead of $4.599
LCC, on Wednesday while on base I paid $5.54 per Gallon for regular unleaded, and it’s expected to get much worse. Pure Libtard economics in action, and when fuel costs more, everything else costs more.
Ya know… Claude puts out this blog from an altruistic point of view.
If you think you have greater ideas on how to run a blog (which if not an easy task, I must say), then go for it. See how well you fare in that endeavor.
And instead of ranting about the previous administration, or the present administration, put some helpful information on here. What do you accomplish by bashing either side of government? When I see that in a comment, I move on. You unfortunately lose credibility with me.
If Hurricaine Katrina did not show you that you are indeed responsible for your own
welfare, and that the government is not coming to save you, then you failed to learn that lesson.
All the people who complain about the government seem to be quite tolerable to accepting stimulus checks and other perks the government hands out.
So here is my little bit of perhaps helpful information.
In the event of a nuclear attack:
The last place you want to be is in a car. You have 15 minutes before fallout
hits to find shelter.
A mobile home, or a wooden building are the least preferable.
Concrete or brick are best.
If you are in a wooden building move to the center of the bottom floor,
and stay there for 24 hours.
If you are caught outside, get inside, remove clothing, place into a garbage bag, remove it from the building.
Shower, or wipe with a wet cloth, anything exposed. (Face, hair, hands).
Do not use conditioner in the shower as that will stick fallout to your body.
After 2 weeks, all radiation should be dispersed.
When you see grass or plants growing, it may be safe to plant your garden.
For more information, this site has lots of credible information:
Take care everyone, and please be kind. There is enough hatred in the world without adding more.
What does it accomplish? Makes me fell better to get things off my chest…. OK.
It might make you feel even better if you felt you were contributing to helpful tips.
A.E., JPup does contribute with worthwhile information on several threads, but apparently you are judging him by a post on this thread. JPup also has a good sense of humor which he sometimes posts and is most appreciated.
If you want to be unfairly judgmental, then be ready to be judged yourself.
Lighten up A. E. If you don’t like my comments feel free to skip right over them … I shan’t be offended.
You have a big Left Leaning feel good about yourself day…😁
I was not referring to anyone specific… just speaking in general. Please don’t judge me unfairly.
I am not from the U.S. so there you go… judging me as a Left leaning person.
Hey it’s a gift. I can judge anyone..😁
A.E., making excuses now are you? You replied to JPup, not in the general “Leave a Reply” at the bottom, so yes, you will be judged by your actions.
Good article dz, very good.
dz: Hot one. Very good article. niio
dz: I know some of the Gorka family. They’re very staunch free Russia and despise putin. this one, he’s exactly on the money. A lot of Russians are asking Trump to step in because Trump understands what’s happening, and why. putin has withdrawn from the public and God alone knows what’s going on. niio
red, I’ve been a casual practical prepper for many years, but a while back my son said something like this: “Dad, you have always stocked up on things and do your own repairs when you can, but it seems like you have started preparing for war.” Maybe he was right.
Miz Kitty: Never did I trust the government. Never trusted the news, either. The secret to understand motives is, predators smile just before they attack. niio
What you forgot is that Russia would begin to evacuate their cities, this would take 5-7 days and is the primary warning sign that a nuke war is imminent, so until this happens you don`t need to worry much. The other thing, it would not take an all out war or limited nuke war to kill off the USA due to weak points in our critical infrastructure, the power only 9 points to close it down and 90% of all would die in the first 12 months. Most within 90 days. Building it back would take more than 2 years, and most would be dead by then. Remember a little while ago, POTUS Biden gave Putin a list of 16 critical infrastructure points that he should not attack, this is a creative way to commit treason. Will he and others who did the same thing ever be brought to justice ? The answer is no, they are never brought to justice, as it is government sponsored.
Anon: We disagree on one point. Remember when the Chechen rebels held that movie theater hostage? Yeah, no compromise on Russia’s part. Troops broke in and shot anyone who moved. niio
They gassed the entire theater and killed a lot of civilians in the process
Anon, I would not depend on Russia to evacuate the “peasants” in advance, so would keep watch for, but not depend on evacuations of the general populace as dependable advance warning. Putin has no problem using his own people as cannon fodder.
dz: there’s a growing call for the military to arrest putin to stop him. Meanwhile, I’m looking at all this junk mail/begging letters coming in and thinking, toilet paper…
Very good points, Anon. Probably the biggest threat from the outside, with regard to crippling the USA would be an EMP strike, which would make immediate occupation by the aggressor feasible. Nuclear attacks destroy and create an uninhabitable environment and would probably be off the table unless the aggressor feels they are under eminent threat of attack themselves.
Another clear and present danger would be massive viral attacks on our infrastructure via malware and software driven viruses that would cripple electronic commerce and essentially all things dependent on internet and wireless communications.
Doesn’t matter if you are off grid and not dependent on such modern conveniences, because those that are dependent will be thrown into complete hysteria and panic will ensue.
Trying to sidestep or mop up that mess will ugly.
The bad guys want chaos to ensue, after which they can easily seize control.
Not trying to preach here, just my humble opinion.
this is worth reading, with good info for everyone no matter your situation
Very good article dz. Good basics very thought provoking.
I think the main takeaway is that one needs to pack to live off the land, not try to carry a grub stake for the long haul.
DZ – I know you and many others know, but for newcomers –
The rule of three applies: Humans can survive three weeks without food, three days without water, three hours without shelter, and three minutes without oxygen.
3 days without water and you won’t be moving. They never factor in environmental issues as well.
Western cultural Americans are just weak and throw fits when they can’t get ice cream at McDonald’s.
Ya know there are a lot of other countries to live in where you won’t have to tolerate all the weak Americans. It would also relieve you of many of the other things you hate…. just a heads-up.
oh because you dont like to hear the truth so get out speech…. No there isn’t any other countries around This one will fall like the rest and nobody seemed to notice the 1.5 trillion dollar budget passed filled with more anti gun laws.
Enjoy your socliiamism like you fools voted for.
raven. I’m gone for a few days and you go off on a tangent of evil talk. What’s wrong now? Why do you curse yourself by mocking people? I’m a western cultural American. I don’t go to McDonalds and rarely eat ice cream. You must be an anti-Christ to hate G’d so much you mock His image. If I’m wrong, prove it by being one of the family, not an enemy. If you don’t like America, why are you here?
A very generous assessment Mr JPup.
Perhaps you are right.
Well Swts who knows.. I know I’m done jousting with him anyway.
You republicans and democrats have done a fine job carrying the talking points forward. Keep on dividing us. I came down from the mountains but I guess I need to go back and think for myself.
Yeah perhaps you should rethink everything… Glad we could help.😁
John, since when is upholding the Constitution divisive? Since when is upholding human rights divisive? that’s sheeple talk. You do not seem the sort of man who is likely to roll over or grab ankle when confronted.
Yeah, I just love so-called independents. You go think while the rest of us fight the war. Then you can come out at the end and proclaim you were always with the side of the winner. You’re not an independent, you’re a coward.
what war lol… name one war other then WW2 that the us didn’t screw up the country and make things worse.
raven: WWII sc***ed up the country and changed things from more or less open to nazi dem politics. Remember who was i charge, FDR, Hitler’s friend, then Truman and klansman and good friend with Alger Hiss. and what party managed to keep Hiss from the noose. Truman allowed thousands of unvetted nazis into the country, ignoring protests even from conservative people in his own party.
most people are aware of operation paperclip…. whats sad is none of the japs 871 units ever faced war crimes..
most of their military got off without even a trial.
sorry john much of this site is filled with maga fools….
ya John and raven is head cheer leader for the MAGA group.
As you can see, he CRYS more then anyone.
Then he has to TROLL you
You will get use to his inept.
This is an outstanding article. I will be passing this one on to others.
dz: good article, but I disagree. this is a war against elitist communists. Soros, Buffet, biden, obama, are all nazis. That’s where we are at war. putin is a side issue to take our eyes off of what the left wants to do. niio
red, please reread the article very closely, it describes the tactics used by the elitist communists as well as many other power grabbers, including religious organizations.
dz: I did read it. My points are only where I disagree. This war isn’t what dems want us to think. It’s a deception and nothing more. http://themostimportantnews.com/archives/6-years-of-being-manipulated-by-manufactured-waves-of-outrage-with-no-end-in-sight
Word is, Putin is dying of cancer. For 2 years, he’s been pretty much out of things, and said to be taking treatments.
As the saying goes, when Christ was taken from the gutter and into the houses of the wealthy, he became only a tool of the wealthy. this doesn’t mean all religions are wrong. Apostate churches are begging for help because they’re losing people faster than real churches. Islam is losing millions because of jihad. And, most are coming to Christ. the liberals attempts to bolster terrorism collapsed because the people do not want apostate Islam, but Jesus. niio

red, Soros and his ilk are high-level puppets, tell us about the Rothchilds, and who they answer to.
dz: who do you think masterminds the rothschilds? Most of what the rothschilds did benefitted a lot of people. That’s changed. niio
red, I don’t know, just guesses at best, was hoping you might have some info. I see the Globalist Agendas and propaganda campaigns are being ramped up even more worldwide. As an old Asian veiled insult/curse says: “May you live in interesting times”, we are definitely “living in interesting times”.
I’m maintaining my attitude to accept what comes and do what I can that is best for my family, including stocking up family in distant locations by ordering supplies to be delivered directly to them.
dz: What is said is more than we need to know. That the creepy people are out in the open with nazism now, is not a good sign.
Yes, we have to accept what we cannot change. But, also, to change what isn’t acceptable. niio
Like FDR and JFK ? its always been out in the open. Hell large portions of Ukraine is in full suport of Nazi party
raven: Yes on it all, but the Ukraine is getting very anti-nazi, educating people that Stalin and Hitler were friends and so on. But, yes, a lot of Ukrainians are socialists.
Raven and Red, just like a lot of Americans are fascists, socialists, and nazis. and, I think to Red’s point, we don’t write off our whole country because of a few bad apples. Ukraine is not perfect but we need to not ignore the deaths of thousands of children at the hands of an evil dictator and tyrant.
Ukraine isn’t perfect but need to worry about the childrens deaths ? … yet america leads the world in abortions ….
They have had a nazi party from ww2 and on. They murdered jews and did the same thing the germans did. However after ww2 they where never held accountable. To this day the red and black flag they fly is the Nazi party flag. I don’t mean they have a small group of trailer trash idiots meeeting at Ihop over hating blacks.. . But they have a “strong group of mlitary fighting men ” who want to bring back the ww2 stance against jews.
Ukraine isn’t our fight and i don’t buy into the propaganda about russians “intentionally hitting civilans” Its war…. people shooting from a apartment complex tend to get back at. American in the first few years of Iraq killed hundreds of thousdands of civliians.
raven: same scenario: do you want to fight Russia over there or in your backyard?
Russia went nazis long before WWII. Stalin and Hitler were good friends, and Stalin adopted Hitler’s elitist communism. Ukraine joined Germany because they wanted independence from the USSR. They were not killed for keeping their religion while the USSR and Stalin slaughtered people.
I wish we could agree, but fight them there, or fight them here? Yes, the Ukraine is our fight. Like it or not, it is.
ok go sign up and head over to ukraine.. they have open seats on the plane.
Ukraine isnt the us problem. Just because they used the place as a bioweapons lab isnt the peoples problem. I don’t give a shit if russian takes them out again not our problem.
i am not siding with a nazi corrupt gov to side with our pile of s**t gov… Russia has this huge issue…. its called a f*****g ocean…. wonder why nobodys invaded the… its not the hunters but two massive massive oceans and no way to move logstis.
toxic! ready 2 leave altogether!
So, when Russia re-incorporates Ukraine into its border; it will have nato and missles on its borders. Everyone keeps the rhetoric going that Putin doesn’t want nato or missles on its doorstep. ??? Why does nonsense get repeated so much and so often? Because, we have become a people with out the ability to reason (think for ourselves) because we have no common sense. Without a basis of “truth” to weigh all things against; we will have no common sense. You can argue that college education has done this (and it truly has contributed much), but the truth is that we as a people have left God out of the picture and strove to provide for our own pleasures outside of the relm of Godliness. Truly seeking and knocking at the door of Jesus and reading (studying the Word of God) and striving to obey it will give you the ability to have common sense. Then you will understand that these happenings are to full fill the written Word of God. Putin wants what was Russia in its hay day and Biden wants to be king or czar of the world or at the very least, the federalist leader and dictator of this country which will soon be transformed (for many reasons) into something much different than we know. When a nation no longer protects its language or its borders; it will cease to be – divide and conquer has become mainstream; but when a nation who once was a Christian nation; turns its back on God; then the real cursing begins. Why would I say this when we have a church on every corner? It is one thing to proclaim Godliness; but another to live it; just look at who we have decided on to run this country. I have always been flabbergasted at how Shumer, Palosi and the like stay in office. For the most part; Hosea 4:6 and Matthew 15:8 sums it up.
Here’s a link to an interesting article about the manipulation of the masses by the gooberment to increase their control.
Basically, this opportunely timed war is just one more thing to keep us fighting with each other and off balance as TPTB pull yet another slight of hand stripping us of a little more independence, a little more autonomy, a few more of our rights.
Miz Kitty, you have a low, suspicious mind. I count that as something intellectually beautiful. Anything the dems want needs to be considered greed. who owns the lamestream news? Liberals. who owns liberals? soros and wyss. niio
I have paid relatively close attention for the past 50 years to current events and although your link contained good information that everyone should be aware of; to process it in an accurate light, again requires a person to possess an integral moral aptitude driven by wisdom, knowledge and understanding; all of which is only derived from communion with the Holy Spirit of God through His Holy Word. It is then that a person can avoid the pitfalls of fear mongering and whoring after false leadership that has taken over the U.S. gov. for the rewards of “ill gotten gain” which most people in power have partaken of, due to the old adage “total power leads to total corruption”.
Prey: Miz Kitty posted a great article and it’s fact. Yes, you’re right on all points, but read Washington’s prophecy, black clouds. That helps us to understand why the Americas are not mentioned in end times prophecy. We can fight and slow things, and that’s what God wants. niio
Well we could be considered the babolyon …. which may or may not be the rise of the old one…. however its possible the us is.
you oo have a point the US would need to fall out of its super power status which is pretty much going on right now. destroyed military …. destroyed economy and weak churches with sad pathethic sheep in them in.
Thanks – I try! 😁
Well, you can ask “how low can they go”, but they haven’t hit bottom yet, although they’ve tried. Trying to keep ahead of their duplicity is like cleaning out a septic tank with a turkey baster.
Miz Kitty: top o’ the day to you! Strange thing have beset meself, I’m fearing. I woke up yesterday with an overwhelming craving for corned beef and cabbage. It was only later I realized the back of mind mind was more mindful of things than I was. Happy St. Pat’s day! niio
The history of Russia and Ukraine is exceedingly complex. The Soviet Union broke up. Ukraine was one of the independent “states”. Russia is wanting to gather back all the independent regions; it considers Ukraine as a part of Russia. It also wants control of Crimea, the sea ports, the rare minerals used in computers, the nuclear facilities, and anything else he can lay his hands on. I have no doubt the baby killer has lied repeatedly over the years, but now it can be absolutely documented. He said he was only having military exercises, he wasn’t going to invade. Then is was rescuing the two territories in eastern Ukraine populated by Russian sympathizers as being treated unfairly by Ukraine. Then in invades beyond those territories saying that Ukraine is a bunch of Nazis. He says he is only targeting military sites yet he is actually targeting civilian housing, hospitals, schools, food warehouses, and yet he denies he is doing so. His soldiers are killing civilians in their cars as they attempt to flee and as they stand in line for bread. Those soldiers are looting bombed out apartments and houses. They are laying siege to civilians, depriving them of food & water. It is power, absolute control, personal glory, and taking whatever he wants without penalty. He is a narcissistic, megalomaniac who will not allow any opposition from anyone. He relies on threats. He forgets that if he opens Pandora’s box and lobs a nuke, he will receive one back, if not more. The real victims will always be the civilians. Once KGB, always KGB no matter what new moniker is applied. Only if he is taken out by someone in his inner circle or the Russian people revolt in mass which is what initially broke up the Soviet Union. https://www.britannica.com/place/Ukraine/Economic-difficulties
V Questar, you have a lot more confidence in Biden and General Milley than I do. I have no confidence that Biden would nuke his benefactor, Putin.
With Reagan, with Trump, there was no doubt in the minds of Soviet/Russian leadership about what would happen if they used a nuke. Today, Putin is confident enough to tell the world to kiss his ass and to threaten to use a first-strike – and he has watched the western world cower in fear from his threats.
And the rest of the day to yourself!
Despite my “green” heritage, I found myself craving spaghetti, which was just as well, because the price of corned beef brisket this year put it way out of my reach. Nevertheless, I am making corned beef hash (with canned corned beef) this Saturday and serving it with fresh saag greens purchased at the Indian convenience store near my house. As to what greens they actually are, it’s a surprise until I actually unwrap and clean them. Sometimes I still can’t tell until I taste them – last time I thought it was spinach and it turned out to be collards. They’re all good.😋
Miz Kitty: This is cattle country and beef is high here, and shouldn’t be. But, no bootleg slaughterhouses are left. Bought ‘fresh’ at a tienda, the beef was 3.99/lb, and cured in the fridge. One sister (in Penna) just bought a quarter and she paid about that per pound,
Greens, I like most things in the cabbage family. Spaghetti, erk. You and Mom. She was a pasta fanatic and the only white in her was 1/4 English and 1/8 Dietsch/German. Remind me, a woman a few blocks from here gave me 18 fresh duck eggs. Looks like noodles for the beef broth. We should have made green dumplings yesterday but forgot. crushed greens used in the dough. niio
No kidding on the price of corned beef. Two years ago I didn’t buy it because it had gone from sale price for the season of 2 dollars a pound to a price of 4 dollars a pound. This year it’s 7 dollars a pound. Walmart hasn’t had a seasonal sale on meats for several years; they keep the price the same through holidays now. I bought a pound of deli corned beef so I could at least get my Reuben sandwich. In years past I used to buy all of the leftover briskets at the store the week after St. Patrick’s for 99 cents a pound and eat Reubens all year long.
I blame Joe Biden for this and it pisses me off. 🙂
I happened to be at Trader Joe’s, and their meat prices are a little higher than the Shaw’s and Stop and Shop anyway, but even then it was sticker shock. Like in the other topic, corned beef used to be cheap eats but has gotten increasingly expensive over the years. Luckily, potatoes and cabbage are still within reach.
I think part of the reason why meats generally are so expensive is the globalists’ pushing their “green new vegan for everybody but them” agenda. It’s like my state of Massachusetts putting extra “sin taxes” on cigarettes to discourage people smoking. Name brand cigs are now about $13-$14 per pack, with bargain brands about $7-$8.
Same BS agenda and nanny state shenanigans, different product. They may be right about these things being harmful, but I don’t like being coerced into compliance and it makes me want to dig my heels in and eat an entire pot roast with a pack of cigarettes for dessert.
Another problem with prices for specialty cuts like that is high demand in restaurants. Chicken wings, for instance, were considered trash and sold cheaply to the poorest people – most notably black people which is why they and other poor cuts have been traditional soul food ingredients.
Now, chicken wings cost more per pound of actual meat than beef tenderloin. I grew up eating a lot of ham hocks and ox tail – try pricing those in the grocery store today; they make tenderloin look cheap in comparison. That’s why I don’t feel any guilt when I buy a whole tenderloin at least monthly at Sam’s; chicken wings are too expensive.
Dale: dad used to be angry with Mom because she would bone out the forequarters on every deer he took (we were farming then) to make corned beef. If he griped, she cut up the steak meat to make his salami 🙂 niio
I don’t eat spaghetti much anymore, but once every few months I get a craving for it. Your dumplings sound great – what’s your recipe?
I quit smoking about 27 months ago Miss Kitty. I still want a smoke but still haven’t caved. I wish I could do the same with meat but that will not happen. The money I save on smokes now goes to support my meat habbit.
I quit 25 years ago and still have those days that I want to smoke. Or I dream that I started smoking again.
me too, I quite tobacco in all forms in 1995 and sometimes still get the “urge” if I get a faint whiff of a good quality cigar or pipe blend. I’ve even used it as an excuse to “track by scent” until I found the source, then I have to walk away fast so I don’t succumb to the temptation.
Wish I could quit – mostly because of the cost, I’m afraid, but I turn into superbitch and my anxiety goes through the roof when I try. Just to keep the peace at home, I’ve opted to cut back on meat and try to save money that way.
Oh i know Miss Kitty, I smoked 50 years before I could do it. I went on patches and gum at the same time. Fortunately for me I had a bad chest cold at the same time which really cut down on inhaling. Anyway I’m 68 now (as of today🥳) if I make it to 80 I’m going to start smoking again to celebrate.
Miz Kitty, and here it’s still 22 bucks for 16 oz of rollie. But, they nail you on the papers, LOL. As God wills, wild tobacco is sprouting all over the place this year. It loves the heat, tolerates drought, flooding, and freezes and still blooms. Mexico, Marlboro are a buk a pack, USD. In town, 6. AZ never fell for the hitler science about the red devil’s weed (his term for it). The roses started to bloom! It’s summer here! niio
I got lip cancer. long time cigar smoker. still won’t go to the doctor. can’t trust them.
so, you should stop.
Miz Kitty: Prairie tobacco/cardinal flowered lobelia is used for people who want to cut back on smoking or to quit. what I do when I need to stop a while (a very short while) is wean myself off tobacco by slowly replacing it with lobelia. By the time I’m smoking straight red lobelia, the craving is gone. Then a week later the lung infection is back like a lion. ameriherb sells it, when you can catch them with it. but, if you know someone who loves flowers, this is a real popular one. niio
I was spending 15 dollars a carton when the states all decided to start taxing the crap out of tobacco. The following week I went in and a carton was 30 dollars. I turned around and walked out and haven’t smoked again.
But that’s the short version of the story. The longer version would include just how terribly hard it was to quit cold turkey. It was, without a doubt, still the hardest thing I have ever been through in my life.
You start out getting just seconds at a time that you’re not seriously craving a cigarette and you learn to appreciate those seconds and wish them back when they’re gone. Over time, those seconds turn into a minute at a time and then even minutes at a time that you’re not craving – and I don’t mean like wanting one; I mean like wanting to curl up in a fetus position and almost cry craving – but you can’t, and you don’t – curl up and cry that is, or smoke a cigarette.
Finally the minutes grow, to 10 minutes.. 15 minutes.. eventually an hour at a time of peace. Finally, when it turns into a couple days at a time, you know you’ve made it. At least for me, the fear of quitting again, having to go through all of that again, became the leading psychological driver and, even though it was still a struggle, I knew I would never smoke again.
For me, the first month was terrible, I was only barely able to stand it. It was pretty close to a year before I knew I had won.
I don’t tell this to scare people out of quitting. If anything it is to scare those who haven’t started. For those that have started, you know you want to quit and it only gets worse the longer you smoke. You know you have this hanging over your head to do one day.
My suggestion is get a support system, doctors, family, friends, medicines, and get it done. With modern medicines I hope it would be much easier. Then, the other side of telling this tail is that once you’ve suffered that first month , do you ever want to do it again? Consider quitting. And quit once and for all. The sooner you do it the longer you get to enjoy the health and financial benefits.
I’m sorry if this sounds like a typical ex-smoker rant; I don’t mean it to be. I might be a bit of typical non-smoker when I see rude smokers, like a neighbor who tosses his butts in my yard or smoking in front of the sign at the grocery store that says no smoking within 25 feet. That kind of lack of respect for others bothers me; not that they’re smoking.
I have a lot of empathy for smokers who have quitting ahead of them – and they all do; there are very few who honestly accept the costs and risks with no wish to quit.
J: a doctor told me, when the craving hits, take 3-4 slow, deep breaths. That charges the body with oxygen. Tobacco smoke carries carbon monoxide, which the lugs accept as if it were oxygen. Give it more air! 🙂 niio
Dale and DZ,
I’ve heard that from a lot of people – that the cravings never really go away. I may be forced into it eventually, but I’m not looking forward to it. 😲😵
don’t be a quitter and smoke more
raven: I do, every chance I get I light up. Definitely a wonderful medicinal. Definitely safer than most crap the government wants us on.
Miss Kitty, My best wishes for success to you for when you tackle it. Pray for help and support.
Thanks for the pep talk and prayers, and I mean that sincerely.
I do want to share this story with you, though.
I was finished with my shift at work and waiting for my ride, so I was smoking. This woman comes up to me and starts an anti-smoking rant, and I mean full on Karen. It was all “You’re selfish, you’re harming innocent bystanders, you’re polluting the atmosphere, you’re contributing to global warming (yes, really, that was one of her arguments).
So I look at her and smile and ask very sweetly, “So how long ago did you quit?”
“I quit a year ago…” And just then she realizes she never told me that she had quit and just sort of sputters out.
I continue. “The cravings never really go away, do they?” She didn’t answer, but she at least had the grace to be embarrassed at her transferrance and my catching her at it. She left in a hurry, quite possibly to go buy a pack of smokes.
I’m just mean enough to have really enjoyed her discomfortature, but mainly because she was nasty about it, and thought she had a right to order around another adult like I was some serf. She was not doing it out of any sort of concern for my well-being, but out of her own virtue signaling pride. I won’t listen to people who try that BS with me or anyone else, so I don’t listen to most of our politicians.😁
Miz Kitty! If I saw you with a cigarette I’d give you a dirty look and tell you, you just hand that over to me, young lady, and I’ll smoke it for you!
If you have a bright window, tobacco grows well there. You can use the Kratsky method for that, for most vegetables. It’s pure, old-fashioned aquaponics, no pumps of anything needed but a glass or tub of water with fertilizer in it, and plenty of sun.
I like to raise a little tobacco, but the wild stuff (it’s native here) is all over year-long. The nic is so strong in it, it makes even hardened smokers like me stoned. Good stuff, nic. niio
Great story, Miss Kitty. There are a lot of things that stink in the world, and a lot of them are more harmful in small doses than a bit of smelly tobacco smoke but no one ever complains. I always figure when someone complains about a bit of stinky tobacco smoke that I should just fart and give them something even more stinky. No, a whiff of tobacco smoke isn’t going to kill anyone.
why not just tell the truth and mention that… this country really sc****d up everything it touches and should just leave the world alone. Oh wait you buy into the belief that american never loses a war and we do everything for ” the peeoples freeoms”
no i love the place i live but hate the people who run it
lol yeah vote harder or run for office….
Its over and voting is done…. nobody is coming to save you. The elections are frauds and while you can feel good for going out twice in 4 years to vote… It does nothing. we are not the majority and thus we don’t win elections.. . Trump is going to come back and save us and all we are doing is crashing on the roller coaster without any safety rails… but please make sure you hide behind the idea your vote counts and that’s all you need
So are you only here to spam your own prepper site or do you have something to add to the discussion other than the spam?
Sunny windowsill I’ve got, but also a cat who loves to chase the squirrels who sit on the windowledge and blow kisses at him. There’s one who always brings a snack and leisurely eats it while the cat tries to get through the glass. Expert taunters, these little rodents, and destructive too, but I figure free range meat if it comes to that point. My mother thinks they’re cute….🙄
MissKitty, you may want to have a few snap traps (rat size) to catch squirrels and pigeons if ever needed as food. cheap, easy to bait (peanut butter is excellent bait), easy to set. One trick is to place the baited trap where you want it, then set the bail spring and trigger piece or it may keep springing closed on you while trying to set it down. You will need to securely tie or wire them to something like a railing or heavy item so the prey doesn’t take the trap and depart – snap traps don’t always kill, so having a “bonk stick” and leather work gloves handy is a good idea. You can also learn to make wire snares and even buy a “live trap” if you wish, but if it’s wild and you want to eat it, you will have to kill it and clean it.
dz: I know some folks who moved to Albuquerque. squirrels were bad in the pecans, so the kids borrowed rat traps and used peanut butter. Most they ate, but also traded enough to keep the supply of peanut butter going. BRW, if you have a steady supply of snakes around, do like they did and sell them to Asians. Smart kids. One was 13 at the time, the other 9, I think. niio
Miz Kitty: Squirrels are cute, especially in the frying pan. The tails are always cute when used as a fringe on fur coats. Outside of that, we call them tree rats.
According to the ancestors, squirrels have low, lewd minds. If the neighbors–and the cat–don’t mind, you could blow an airhorn when it shows up. Just don’t crack the window! niio
or if you have a stun device like the combo flashlight/stunner, then go ahead and crack the window and give a zap. You don’t even have to touch them, just get close, the zap literally scares the c**p out of them. Also works (temporarily) for chasing birds away from my berries and tomatoes, but also scares my dogs – they do NOT like “lightning”. I wish I had one that I could send down gopher tunnels and zap those short-tailed tunnel rats.
dz: find a dog and scrape up its leavings. We have ground squirrels, and most rodents are clean freaks. Even the smell can drive them out. Packrats are invading, LOL. Neighbors have morning glories all along their fence, and packrats, and ground squirrels, love the roots. Houses here are on slabs, so with squirrels and ‘rats burrowing under the house is not good for a resale. niio
still spamming the boards with your articles…. at least put your MEGA view point with it so we can hear how you feel about it Oh wait you live on the west coast….. i be you’re still wearing a mask hiding from covid
Who cares at this point. Swamp drained nope , Hillary jailed nope and voter fraud was solved nope
see how well trained our little fanatical cultist is becoming, he’s learning to whine by simple suggestion, but it’s so easy when he likes to whine so much. 😎
For sure the government does not tell us everything, nor do I want them to.
Because when they tell us, they are telling the whole world, we are a global village.
And maybe it’s a good thing they were analyzing killer diseases, after all
I want them to know about them in case some enemy country decides to use
them on any of us…
I want them to know everything about killer diseases.
Just sayin…. and no I am not a democrat… I am not even from the U.S.
The Globalist controlled USA has been murdering millions of people around the world since world war 2 ended, claiming they were “keeping the word safe for Democracy”, when in reality the elites were using our military, financial centers, intelligence agencies, media, politicians, etc. to bully countries around the world to give up their resources, install a central bank, sell their oil in dollars, and buy weapons from the military-industrial complex. Any country who played along became a vassal state. Any country who didn’t was demonized and destroyed. Now that the Globalist elites have subdued the rest of the world, they are now bringing the West to their knees through the Great Reset LIE and agenda 2030. (USA, Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand). This is our own fault because we stood by and did nothing while they murdered millions as long as we had the good life here in the USA. The party is now over and the bill is due. There will be HELL TO PAY for our apathy. May God have mercy on our souls.
OK, please forgive me if I’m totally in the dark here: I have a tv, but it is not hooked up to ANYthing: not local tv stations, not satellite, not cable, not DISH, etc. It is just plugged into an outlet. I only use it to watch purchased tv shows and movies.
Having said that, I read that the war against the Ukraine is not going well for Putin, and that the Ukraine is holding strong and taking out lots of Russian troops…
So, If that is true, WHY would Putin enlarge his targets to include the USA? If he can’t even get ahead of the Ukraine, why would he start a war with the US? It makes no sense at all.
I’am waiting for more posts like this.
There’s no place for a dictator in the modern world.
Then explain the multiple dictatorships in the USA?
Feds, States, and locals?
A dictator does not have to be a single person.
Any time our EMPLOYEES can order us around, we got a MAJOR problem.
Note: Ukraine is the money laundering country for the elites.
Americans and many Westeuropeans are truly STUPID.
You and they do not know anything about what is going on in the World.
The Aggressor is THE ZIOANGLOSAXON WORLD ( = USA , UNITED KINGDOM , CANADA , NEW ZEALAND and AUSTRALIA ) who is afraid to loose its MONOPOLY of POWER .. and appears to be willing to use any means to preserve this power..
RUSSIA has never done anything bad to the USA or EUROPE and has no Intention of doing so… for many reasons among which is that Russia is so BIG and RICH in recources it does Not need the riches of other People or Nations .. The Threat normal Americans have is the threat from the POOR URBAN PART of its own Population , a DUMBED DOWN almost ILLITERATE group of People characterized by low paid JUNK JOBS , Fast Food , Alcohool ,Drugs Telly Shows and Computer Games , Criminality and immidiate GRATIFICATION of IMPULSES … those who have NOTHING .. not in the BRAIN and not in the PURSE .. exploited by Your Billionaire socalled Elites… take a look at down town San Francisco or Philadelphia and other run down Major Cities …. THOSE People are those You must FEAR when the SUPER MARKET STORES are EMPTY !
