Let me start this off with some personal background to set the stage. Many years ago I considered myself an agnostic, basically you needed to convince me God was real for me to believe. Well in 2001 someone did, namely Kent Hovind, otherwise known as Dr. Dino. From there forward I was a staunch believer and defender of Christianity but I had numerous issues come up that made me question my faith. I was in 1 particular FundaMENTAL Baptist Church (heavy on the mental) for over 12 years in which time I read my Bible 2 dozen times completely through (we’ll talk more about that later), became a deacon, treasurer (that taught me way too much about that place), Sunday school teacher, preached in jail ministries, knocked on many doors witnessing, memorized half the book of Revelation and many other large chunks of the Bible, oh, and preached behind the pulpit of the church while the pastor was away, etc etc etc… I say all this so you will realize just how involved in Christianity I was.

So what changed? Well, I’ve always been a free thinker, it’s just that I allowed myself to be partially brainwashed for a large period of my life. I knew about all the things I’m about to talk about but I made excuses for them. Well, no more, but first, what exactly is a deist?

For those of you who wanna skip the reading and just listen or watch me read this blog post I’ve made the following video:

Put simply a deist is a person who believes in God but not a book or religion. It’s more complicated than that but this is neither the time or place to write that, this is my story. I’ll let you do your own research but will give you some more information at the end of this article to aid in that research.

I could talk about the blatant hypocrisy that is pandemic in Christianity but I would also have to talk about how Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, etc etc etc is also infected. This is an old, tired argument and holds no water. Let’s get to the real reasons that ALL “revealed” religions are total bull. I’m going to focus on Christianity because that’s where my experience is.

The Bible claims it’s the perfect Word of God kept and preserved by God Himself.

Psalm 12:6-7 “The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. [7] Thou shalt keep them, O Lord , thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

So, if these verses are true there can be none, zero, zippo problems with the book. Copyist errors wouldn’t be possible because God’s Word is perfect and pure. Contradictions would be completely out of the question, they wouldn’t exist. There would be no updates to fix spelling errors or for that matter hundreds of English versions all saying, essentially different things.

(This is where my thousands of hours of Bible reading, study and memorization come into play).

1. Let’s get started with the contradictions, and I don’t mean the supposed ones, I mean the honest to goodness, clear cut, blatantly obvious ones. I’ll only give you 3 that I’ve personally found in my own personal study and reading. These are MORE than enough.

a. How old was Jehoiachin when he became king of Jerusalem?

Eighteen  (2 Kings 24:8)
Eight (2 Chronicles 36:9)

b. What was the exact wording on the cross?

This is Jesus the King of the Jews (Matthew 27:37)
The King of the Jews (Mark 15:26)
This is the King of the Jews (Luke 23:38)
Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews (John 19:19)

c. Does God repent?

Yes (1 Samuel 15:10-11)
No (1 Samuel 15:29) SAME CHAPTER!!!

For further research here are some links.

9 Undeniable Contradictions on the Bible

2. There are many stories from many religions that mirror and predate the story of Christ and/or the Bible almost EXACTLY with the only big discrepancies being the names and dates.

Look up the stories of Buddha, Krishna, Odysseus, Romulus, Dionysus, Heracles, Glycon, Zoroaster, Attis & Horus. You’ll find striking similarities to the story of Christ like most of them being born of a virgin… To many coincidences to write off. It almost brings me to the conclusion that Jesus Christ was nothing more than a hodge podge copy of many prior pagan gods, a refining of the control grid if you will.

Here’s a few more links for ya to research.

3. Logic. I’ve always been logic driven. This dive into Christianity put a huge temporary blind spot on my logic. It’s not that it went away but like it went into a semi-dormant state. Even in this semi-dormant state questions came up in my mind that nobody could or would answer to my satisfaction. Questions like, How can 1 God be 3 and if we, as believers have the Holy Spirit and there are millions of believers then are there not millions of partial gods? Or, How could a God that is Love order people to kill all the men, women, children and animals and burn their cities to the ground simply because they believed something different? Or, How come the Bible says one thing here and something totally contradictory here? Or, How come we are the only ones that are right out of the thousands of religions out there?


Or, How come my prayers never get answered? Not the basic ones that could simply be written off as coincidence but the big ones that ONLY GOD could answer if He’s even listening? Or, Why would God damn someone to an eternity in hell for now believing in Him? Sounds very juvenile! Or, How can God create someone but now know them? Of course these questions are anathema to any preacher. You may as well just leave that church before you even ask because they won’t answer them and will take you as a threat to their income after that. You will be labeled a heretic and/or a trouble maker or as my old pastor put it “you have the devil in you”…. and will probably be shunned by all your “christian” friends at that church.

What do I suggest? What do I always suggest? DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH AND COME TO YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS, just make sure you don’t take the lazy mans approach and just take what someone or something says as gospel truth! See what I did there? lol.

So as an addendum to this post I promised to post some basic info on what deism is, so here we go…


That is the basis of deism right there. We believe there is a God. We believe he created the universe but then walked away. He doesn’t intervene. He doesn’t answer prayers. He doesn’t care if you worship Him or hate Him. He just is and always will be. When it comes to eternity, views vary. I personally believe that if He could create everything He can take care of me when I die. I have no worries. Deism pictures God as the great “clock-maker” who created the clock, wound it up, and let it go. Deists deny the Trinity, the inspiration of the Bible, the deity of Christ, miracles, and any supernatural act of redemption or salvation. Deism pictures God as uncaring and uninvolved. Deism is knowledge of God based on the application of our reason on the designs/laws found throughout Nature. The designs presuppose a Designer. Deism is therefore a natural religion and is not a “revealed” religion. The natural religion/philosophy of Deism frees those who embrace it from the inconsistencies of superstition and the negativity of fear that are so strongly represented in all of the “revealed” religions such as Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Here is a decent video describing the core beliefs.

And let’s end it there and give you some more references:

The Age of Reason – Thomas PAINE (Free Audio Reading) A word on this audio edition. It’s completely missing the 3rd Volume. Get the real book and read it all. The third volume is wonderful in explaining deism.

There is so much information available at the tip of your fingers now-a-days that I had to compile this short list. This list is only brushing the surface of an issue that 99.99999% of people just can’t seem to wrap their feeble little minds around. Perhaps it’s because they’ve been programmed a certain way since early childhood. Perhaps it’s peer pressure. Whatever it is the issue is so fiercely debated that I had to throw my hat into the ring and offer you a 20 point outline on whether your vote actually counts or not. Many of these points may sound condescending. I apologize for this in advance; it’s just that I am thoroughly disgusted with the state of even so called educated Americans. Many will sternly disagree with me, that is ok, you have the right to be dead wrong. The facts are the facts, and if you can get past your normalcy bias with an open mind and deeply research everything I submit to you here I believe you’ll come to the same conclusion I did many moons ago. So without further ado…

Does your vote actually count? The simple answer is FUCK NO! The longer answer is below. Ponder the following points.

  1. The system is rigged. Electronic voting machines that select someone you didn’t vote for that can be hacked remotely by a 5th grader. There has been federal testimony from a machine programmer stating that they can control the outcome of the elections simply with these machines.

  1. There is no chain of custody. Entire districts ballots are repeatedly “lost” and then later “found” and “recounted”. Inevitably they sway the districts vote.
  2. Your votes aren’t even counted here in the USA, they are counted oversees by a company named SCYTL, located in Spain and owned by non-other than George Soros, famous Nazi collaborator and member or every elite NWO organization you can shake a stick at.
  3. Every election tens of thousands of DEAD people vote. Towns have recorded more votes than residents of that town. Fraud is rampant.
  4. No voter ID. Any idiot (liberals included) can get a list of people who don’t hardly ever vote and can waltz right into the polls and vote as that person, with very limited research, because we refuse to enact voter ID laws. It isn’t due to “discrimination”; these laws won’t be introduced because if they were it would be harder to rig elections.
  5. Early and absentee votes have been repeatedly NOT counted, period.
  6. Between the Electoral College, super delegates and party “rules” you have as much a chance of influencing an election as I have of getting laid.
  7. The GOP changed the rules at the Florida RNC so they could exclude Ron Paul. They constantly change the rules and are doing so currently to exclude Trump.
  8. The Electoral College was designed to ensure that states with smaller populations had a say in federal elections. Smaller population states have more of a say than larger states. A citizen of Wyoming, in fact, has 3.6 times the raw voting power of a citizen of California. In Wyoming it takes 192,000 voters to get 1 Electoral College vote. In California it takes 692,000 to get 1. 538 people TOTAL “decide” who is installed, not you. And remember, they can still change their vote. Example: In 2008 McCain received approximately 91 Million votes while Obama received 34 Million. McCain received 268 Electoral College delegates, Obama received 270. Obama won even though he lost by a fucking monumental landslide! Still think your vote counts???
  9. Politicians are bought and paid for. They are owned, plain and simple and will do what their masters tell them to do. With that comes….
  10. Presidents are titular heads. For those of you who dropped out of middle school that is someone who is the official leader or ruler of a country but who does not have real power or authority. Presidents are puppets. When they step out of line people like Lee Harvey Oswald get framed. Enough said.
  11. The REAL government is a Shadow Government run by unelected plutocrats (read international banking cartel). Think of names like Rothschild, Kissinger, Morgan, Dupont, Ford, Carnegie, Melon, Bush, Collins, Kennedy, Astor, Freeman, Li, Van Duyn, Onassis, Bundy, Reynolds, Disney, McDonald, Harriman, Lehman, Goldman, Vanderbilt, Brown, Warberg, Krupp, Farben, Guggenheim and Rockefeller and you will be coming closer to the truth. Research these names dammit!
  12. The democrats and republicans are simply two heads of the same damn monster, government. Their policies are the same. They all break their promises. No matter who’s in office wars will continue, the police state will increase, the constitution will continue to burn, your rights will continue to diminish, etc…. And yes, EVEN TRUMP.
  13. The USA is a corporation, NOT a country and it is controlled by corporations. They dictate policy.
  14. The Media is controlled by the Shadow Government and 99.999% of Americans trust the gospel of MSNBC, CNN, ABC, Faux News, etc… They can control and steer the public perception and the public’s voting habits. While we’re here, let’s look at the primary schedule.
  15. The primary voting schedule was written in a time and place where candidates needed to ride the circuit to proselytize the public. Now-a-days, thanks to technology, everything is instant. By holding primary elections so far apart the public’s voting habits can, again, be manipulated.
  16. Every Single Last President has been a descendant of the Royal English Bloodline of Charlemagne. That can’t possibly be a coincidence. It simply lends credence to the FACT that the president is NOT elected, they are SELECTED, and they ain’t selected by John Q Public, they are selected by the nameless ruling elite. The choices you are given (wait, did you read that?…) THE CHOICES YOU ARE GIVEN, that’s right, GIVEN. You don’t choose the contestants, THEY DO. Who said “Presidents are selected, not elected.”? ― Franklin D. Roosevelt”
  17. Presidents are selected by the Bilderberg Group. If you don’t know about the Bilderberg Group you need to do some serious screen time with Google. The Bilderbergs met in Davos, and the decision was made that Hillary Clinton will be the next president. I know this isn’t gonna sit well with all you Trump fans but what they want they get. Hitlery will be sitting at the same desk Monica sat under no matter how many of you cast your ceremonial vote for Trump. She has been chosen.
  18. The fact that your vote doesn’t count is so universally accepted now that even The Boston Globe has written about it in an article titled: Vote all you want. The secret government won’t change. The people we elect aren’t the ones calling the shots, says Tufts University’s Michael Glennon.
  19. And for our last fun fact of the day… C. Gerald R. Ford, our 38th president from 1974-1977, was APPOINTED to the vice-presidency after the resignation of Richard Nixon’s original vice-president, Spiro Agnew, in 1973. About a year later, Ford became president upon Nixon’s resignation after the Watergate scandal. NOT ONE SINGLE PERSON voted to put Ford in office but he became president.

Tell me again how your vote counts…?

I know you have your favorite party, or your favorite candidate, or you want to vote for the lesser of two evils but let me remind you of an old saying. “The lesser of two evils is STILL EVIL”.  Voting for which megalomaniacal psychopathic power mad dictator will preside over your life is an illusion of choice. You don’t have a choice, it’s already been made on your behalf. Voting, or rather the entire election season has always been used as a distraction from what’s really going on. It divides marriages, families and friends. It is the ultimate tool of control that you voluntarily use on yourself.

Wake the fuck up and live your life free of control. No Rulers. No Masters. Don’t let them take your freedom away, simply claim it and live your life. If someone comes for it, defend it with extreme prejudice up to and including violence. And, please, for my Christian friends don’t use the Romans 13 copout. God DID NOT install tyrants. Read that scripture again and again very carefully, word by word and then consider this… Hosea 8:4a “They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not”. God only sets up the GOOD kings… THEY set up the bad ones. Their rules need not to be obeyed seeing as “we ought to obey God rather then men” (Acts 5:29).

Live your life as a free and sovereign human being and don’t let anybody take that away from you…

Oh, and don’t vote, it’s not counted.

Let me preface this by giving the usual legal bullshit disclaimer. I am not a doctor, I don’t even play one on T.V.. This IS NOT medical advice and shouldn’t be taken as such. Talk to your doctor before doing anything. There, that should cover my ass.

Psychopathic Poison Pill Popping Pissed off Preppers, it’s probably my scariest SHTF scenario. Nothing scares me more than a prepper on antidepressants. Why? Simple. When the shit hits the fan and they run out of their pills you’ll wish for brain eating zombies. I know I’m going to be stepping on some toes here. Dammit, pull your feet in when I walk by! I have friends that are taking antidepressants. I’ve been on one. That doesn’t change my opinion on them. Let me set this scenario up for you.

Preppers are known to be well armed, not only with guns but knives and knowledge. Hell, I am one, I should know. Not only are they well armed with these but they usually practice regularly (or at least they should) and are quite proficient with them. Enter the SSRI….


The top 10 side effects WHILE ON SSRIs include Suicidal Thoughts, Depression & Anxiety and the effects are acute, meaning they come on hard and fast. I thought these pills were suppose to prevent these things???  But what’s really scary is what happens when you get off of them cold turkey.

It’s been said 1 in 10 Americans now takes an antidepressant medication; among women in their 40s and 50s, the figure is one in four.. That’s fucking scary. And here’s why…



At the request of a fellow prepper I decided to put this post and video together.

Some things I forgot to mention in the following video…

  • EchoLink – This is a program where Ham repeaters are wired into the internet. This is obviously only going to work if the grid and the internet are working but if you mask your IP, use proxies, VPNs, TOR, etc… you’re location will be fairly secure. This program only works with a valid call sign issued by the FCC. You can also use this on a laptop and (illegal activity warning) jack into the outside phone technician box on a random house to get your access, hell, everyone has high speed internet now a days… OR, use someones free WiFi like the public library or McDonald’s. The options are literally limitless if the grid is still up. They also have smartphone apps but as I said in the video, USE A BURNER PHONE and DO NOT link up any accounts on that phone or BINGO you’re busted!
  • FLDIGI – I mention it in the video but here is the link DOWNLOAD ME HERE.
  • National prepper frequenciesDON’T USE THEM!!! You can bet your ass these frequencies will, as well as already are, being monitored by the bad guys. OPSEC, OPSEC, OPSEC!!! These plague frequencies are as follows:
    80 Meters – 3.818 MHz LSB
    (TAPRN Net: Sundays at 9 PM ET)
    40 Meters – 7.242 MHz LSB
    40 Meters Morse Code / Digital – 7.073 MHz USB
    20 Meters – 14.242 MHz USB
    20 Meters Morse Code / Digital – 14.073 MHz USB
    2 Meters – 146.420 MHz FM
    440 (70 cm) – 446.420 MHz FM
    FRS/GMRS – Channel 4 (462.6375 MHz)
    CB – Channel 4 (27.005 MHz)
    MURS – Channel 4 (154.570 MHz)
    Stay the hell away from and avoid these like you would the plague.
  • Receive Only. If all you want to do is gather as much information as you can then just get receivers. A good, digital police scanner and a good, side-band capable shortwave receiver with continuous frequency coverage are all you will need.

This video was 100% off the cuff so I’m sure I said something inaccurate. If you have any questions or comments don’t be afraid to ask.

Always, always, always do your own research. I can’t stress that enough. I AM NOT A RADIO GOD!!! I am just another average extra class ham radio operator that happens to also be a prepper wanting to share my knowledge with the community. There are so many things you need to know, this is just a primer. For instance, proper grounding of equipment, antennas, etc… is not only critical to keep your expensive equipment safe from lightning but also diminishes noise in the signal and allows for clearer communications. It’s a whole other world to learn about.

I’ve included some pictures of my setup for reference. You can click them to zoom.

As always Like, Share, Comment, etc… Share the Love and keep on prepping.

The 5.11 Tactical Double “Duty” belt is a very nice pistol belt for the price but I’m not sure I’d refer to it as a duty belt. A duty belt is typically bigger and beefier and used to carry equipment easily, in a readily-accessible manner, while leaving the hands free to interact. This is more than just a pistol and mags. This is radio, cuffs, taser, etc… I would not consider this belt a “duty” belt.

Description from their website: “With a dual-layer reversible design that offers two different color options, the 1.5” Double Duty TDU® Belt offers exceptional versatility in a quick and efficient design. Crafted from rip-resistant nylon, the 5.11® Double Duty Belt incorporates a durable non-metallic buckle that won’t set off metal detectors, making it a great choice for both air travel and EOD. An easy thread belt tip ensures fast on and off, and 5 rows of stitching provide maximum stability.

First of all the price. $23. This is a very inexpensive belt for what it delivers. You can’t even get a decent belt at Wal-Mart for what this belt costs, and this one will out last any belt you get at Wally World.

The belt is two sided so you can wear either the black side for dress or to be less obvious or you can flip it around to it’s colored side (either green or brown depending on your choice) if you’re not worried about people spotting the belt. With most of the zombies out there today this won’t be a problem anyways. I like mine green-out unless dressing up.

This belt is a 1.5″ (You can also get 1.75″) belt so it’s the biggest you can get without having special pants with bigger loops. Five horizontal stitches keep the nylon weave stiff. In the month I’ve worn it it really hasn’t gotten floppy at all and holds up my fully loaded XDm, 2 full spare mags (19 rounds each) and Gerber suspension Multi-tool without breaking a sweat. To do that with my old leather belt I had to wear it really tight. A little TMI warning… Wearing a belt too tight really irritates my gut so having a belt I don’t have to over tighten to carry my gear helps immensely. Also, make sure you get the fit right because at first it’s not easy to adjust like a typical belt with holes. Once you get use to it, it does get a little easier to adjust. Also given the buckle design the buckle and belt do stick out quite a bit.

Customer service. For a company like this it sucks. It took 3 weeks to get my belt. 2 weeks after ordering I emailed customer service wondering why I haven’t even so much as gotten a order or shipping confirmation email. FOUR DAYS LATER they emailed me with that confirmation and a tracking number. When I finally did receive it everything was great. Packaging was adequate and nothing was damaged.

Sizing. This is important! These belts are NOT sized by your waist size like a typical belt. They are sized by belt length. Measure your current best fitting belt tip to buckle and order one size up from the number, especially if you’re going to carry inside the waistband. I wear 38″ waist pants even though I’m a 36″ waist because I carry IWB a lot so I need the room. The belt I ordered was the XL which is for 40″-42″. It fits perfect with about 6″ of belt to spare. Moral of the story? Measure twice, size up, order once.

Overall, despite the slow customer service (which may have been a fluke as I’ve never had a problem before) I do highly recommend this belt and other products from 5.11 Tactical. I also have two of their holster shirts and love them though they won’t handle my XDm. They handle my wife’s LCP very well and are also handy for holding other things like wallets, keys, flashlights, etc…

To order from them goto:

Order one today and in the meantime don’t forget to Like, Share, Comment and Subscribe. Share the love and keep on prepping.

It’s long been known by dictators and tyrants that if you want to control a people you need only starve them out. If you can control the food supply, you have near total control of the nation. I believe whole heartedly that the government and corporations alike are working overtime to tighten their grip on our food supply. Not a week goes by when you don’t hear about crop failures and food shortages. Some of this is legitimate, some is not and I’d dare say most is manufactured. Let me just list a few of the ways I believe they are doing this.

Codex Alimentarius. This is the UN’s plan to basically destroy all organic food and nutritional supplements. It’s too detailed to get into in this short little post so I challenge you to learn about it. Here’s a link to a quick info sheet. What do they want? Money, Power and GMOs.

GMOs. These are not only killing people they are taking over and converting non-GMO crops to GMO crops. Monsanto, the same people who developed Agent Orange, engineer your food. What’s worse is its getting to the point you have to use their seeds because of…

Chemtrails. Geoengineering through chemtrails is proven and admitted. Dropping aluminum, barium and strontium into the atmosphere to reflect the sun and cool the planet to combat glo-bull warming is the purported goal but some of us realize the true agenda. Problem is non-hybrid heirloom seeds won’t grow when inundated with aluminum, barium and strontium but GMO seeds that are tolerant to these are gladly sold by Monsanto.

Ethanol. Just imagine how much more food there would be if we’d stop using out farmland to grow a totally useless gasoline additive. There would be NO food shortages.

Haarp….and others like it are 100% capable of pushing the jet-stream around and heating up the ionosphere creating a whole slew of strange weather events, even earthquakes in diverse places. I’m sure this is why the entire country’s weather is totally screwed up this year.

Propaganda. Just telling us there is a shortage when there isn’t to raise prices, cause a run on the supermarkets and create an artificial scarcity is probably the most used and most successful tactic employed today. Never, Never, Never trust the government or their propaganda arm the main stream media. Never believe the official story.

Solutions. So as a prepper the solutions should be common sense. You can’t save the world but you can save your family and perhaps your neighborhood depending on it’s size and if you can influence them beforehand. Below is a short list of how you can avoid the government controlling you by controlling and growing and stockpiling your own food supply. Now, I’m going budget minded here because, well, 99% of Americans like yourself can’t just go out and dump 10 grand on long term food storage…

Copy canning. This is so simple. When shopping if you normally buy 1 can of beans then buy 2 and put the second in storage. Thus concept can be used for all nonperishable items, even TP. Just watch the mice with stockpiling TP.

Long term food storage. Not many people can dump a few grand on a 1 year+ food supply. However, most can buy an MRE a week or a Mountain House packet a week, etc… Eventually you’ll have that 1 year supply.

5+ gallons of rice and beans. This is a quick and cheep way to build up a good sized supply of storable food. 5 gallon Home Depot bucket (which just happens to be food grade) + Mylar bags off eBay + oxygen absorbers from the same + WHITE rice or beans from the store. All in all its very cheap and will last for a long time. I say white rice because brown rice spoils quicker. I know, sounds racist doesn’t it… Oh well.

Gardening. Even if you live in an apartment you can do some gardening. Containers in Windows. Sprouting. Edible potted plants, etc… However it’d be best to have a real garden. Learn complementary gardening techniques to save space and if you have tons of space plant a food forest. Also plant fruit and nut trees if you can. Replace ornamental bushes, shrubs, flowers, etc with ornamentals that are edible and remember to NOT chemically treat your lawn because those dandelions and clovers are also edible among other things.

Livestock. The people who can do this one will vary. Where I live I’m not allowed any form of livestock. A couple things to consider though. In lots of places if you name your animals they are now considered pets and you can keep them. Also animals like rabbits can be “indoor livestock” that nobody needs to know about if you keep your mouth shut. Also quail can be raised in a garage very covertly.

Hunting & Fishing. Without a reliable food supply you’re going to want to hunt. Anything from squirrels to moose and everything in between. Then there’s fishing. Usually this nets (pun intended) more success but in smaller quantities. A good mixture of both would be preferred. Depending on your climate hunting in the winter and fishing in the spring to fall is primarily the best way to go. In a SHTF scenario ain’t nobody going to care if you have a license.

Canning. If you have a garden you’re going to have a hard time keeping it all from spoiling if you don’t have unlimited refrigerator space. Plus if the grid is down and it’s summer good luck there. Canning is an awesome way to preserve your veggies or even the meat from game you’ve bagged.

Dehydrating. Also a very good method of preservation. I prefer this method for making jerky out of game meat but it can be used for so much more. You don’t need electricity for this either. A dehydrator can be made very simply without the use of the grid.

Foraging. This is a skill all preppers should know and regularly practice. Know what grows in your area and what and how you can consume it. However don’t just get the knowledge, develop the wisdom and practice preparing and eating it. I’ll use acorns as an example. Acorns are everywhere up here. My first attempt at eating them a few years back went OK but not stellar. I had researched how to prepare them so I knew you had to boil off the tannin. However I didn’t do enough water changes. I then roasted them and ended up throwing a days worth of work away because they were just too damn bitter to eat. Do this now while hospitals are still readily available just in case you misidentify something. Word of advice, stay away from the Nightlock Katniss.

Notice I never brought up freezing or refrigeration for preservation. I did this because first of all space is very limited and second because electricity will be very unreliable to nonexistent when the Shummer hits the fan.

Take some advice from Hank and be a survivor who can’t be starved out.


A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” – 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution

With Puppet in Chief and “””””constitutional scholar””””” Obama (Sorry, one set of quotes wasn’t enough) threatening more gun control measures I figured I’d write a quick and dirty blog post about how ANY gun law, regulation, restriction, ban, etc…. is completely and totally unconstitutional and should be ignored. The BATFE in itself is a completely unconstitutional organization as EVERYTHING they do is 110% contrary to the 2nd amendment of the Constitution of these United States. Let me explain…

Let’s delve into the wording of the 2nd amendment shall we….

Well regulated. Many people use this as their proof text for gun regulations but in reality it is nothing of the sort. This phrase simply means regulated from within so it doesn’t require regulation from without. So the militia is to be controlled internally, but not as far as guns are concerned as we’ll talk about in a minute. It speaks more about individual militia structure than anything else.

Necessary. That means it is 100% necessary for the people to be armed to have a free state.

Free state. That is a state (not a country by the way), a locality, a land mass, that is free. Freedom is the absence of restrictions of any kind, including gun restrictions.

Militia. This one is easy. The amendment defines this word as “the people”. Ya, that’s everyone. However, more specifically it’s the people defending the country or just their town against tyrannical governments.

The right. Notice that doesn’t say the privilege granted by government. It almost infers duty now doesn’t it.

The people. That would be everyone. Since we’re in a separate sentence now it’s talking about the people as the collective and/or singular. Either way it’s everybody.

Keep. That means “retain”, “possess”, etc… in other words it can’t be taken away.

Bear. That means also to “possess” but goes further into words like “carry” and “use”.

Arms. This word means any weapon. That includes, but is not limited to ALL firearms, even suppressed full auto assault rifles with high capacity magazines full of armor piercing incendiary rounds. Things such as rocket launchers, grenades, tanks, knives, swords, nunchucks etc are all defined as Arms. If it wasn’t for Search Engine Optimization the title of this post would have said “all weapon regulations”…. Either way when the 2nd amendment was written it was meant to include ALL weapons of war. That’s right! Private citizens should be allowed to freely possess and use any weapon that the most elite special forces soldier possesses. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Shall not. Notice this doesn’t say “pursuant to”, or, “except in the case of”, or, “except for”, etc… Shall not is simply that. You can’t do it.

Infringed. That means to limit, restrict, regulate or violate. In other words this right can’t be violated OR RESTRICTED or limited in any way, shape or form. So, gun regulations (or knife, sword, etc…) are infringements on your constitutionally protected rights.

The constitution is the supreme law of the land and according to the 9th and 10th amendment’s (quoted below) the feds and states MAY NOT add any more weapons regulations since the constitution mentions it. Constitutional supremacy rules here. That also means they may not regulate the production or sale of said weapons. No state concealed carry license is over the Constitution. No gun ban of any kind is above the Constitution. Any politician talking about, proposing or passing gun regulations of any kind ought to be tried and executed for high treason against the Constitution of these United States.

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” – 9th Amendment to the US Constitution

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” – 10th Amendment to the US Constitution

All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void. (Marbury vs.Madison, 1803.)

You know what, if you want my guns that bad you can have my guns… But be warned they come bullets first!



In short Mr Williams, YOU are the treasonous thug that needs to be disemboweled you piece of shit!

Ok. Rant over.


This is my review of the Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB holster. This is their top of the line IWB holster. Watch the video below for information on this holster and how it’s constructed.

So, here are my thoughts. Ordering to the door took 9 work days which is commendable as they estimate 12-14. Packaging is nice. There are plenty of video reviews on YouTube about the packaging and the holster so I’ll get into the meat of my review… The holster its self.

I messed around with all the different configurations possible with this holster and ended with the slide side all the way up and the grip side all the way down giving the maximum cant.  This works best for me because I spend a lot of time in vehicles. This position gets the magazine off my back. My particular holster has the custom plastic mold for my Springfield XDm 4.5″ 9mm which is no small pistol and not the easiest to conceal.

I am wearing it in the 4:30 position which is the factory recommended position and it is by far the most comfortable, though I kinda like the 5 o’clock position too but have to put my shoulder out of joint to draw from it. From 4:30 I don’t have to dislocate my shoulder. I did, initially seem to have problems drawing but realized it was human error. What was happening is when drawing the grip side clip would stay on the belt like it should but the soft part of the holster would bend and the holster would come part way out of my pants. Come to find out there were a few things going on here. First, I was thumbing the soft part of the holster by the slide. Second, I had the retention too tight and Third my belt was a soft piece of shit. I now wear a 5.11 Tactical Double Duty Belt which holds this up very nicely.

Back to the holster. Time will tell of it’s durability but from other reviewers I have read it will be a very durable holster. Keep in mind these are NOT kydex holsters. They are Boltaron plastic, which is a very durable plastic. Here is an explanation about that plastic versus kydex.

As far as the tuck-ability of this holster is concerned it is definitely tuckable. Where I have issues is I’m a tall guy and wear tall tuck in shirts. If the shirt tucks really far into the waistline then the fabric will scrunch up a little bit by the holster. Also if you’re skinny like me it will still be hard to completely conceal a full size firearm like my XDm. Just remember something, 99.9% of people out there aren’t looking at you trying to figure out if you’re packing. I don’t know if you’ve noticed but most people are smart phone zombies. They probably wouldn’t notice if you had one in your hand. Also keep in mind there are people out there that ARE looking. Cops, Security Guards, Other CCW holders, etc… It’s still in your best interest not to print and this holster does a DAMN good job of that. Even with a relatively tight fitting shirt on you still won’t know I have my pistol on me unless you put your hand on my lower back / hip, and unless you’re my wife, kids or chiropractor you better keep your hands off!

Fit and Finish? I tried and couldn’t find one blemish or flaw. The neoprene backing is very comfortable against the skin and the “alien” material feels a lot like premium leather, though I know it isn’t. It does provide plenty of grip on the firearm though.

To be honest I can’t find anything wrong with this holster which is out of character for me. I guess I’m just that impressed and I highly recommend this holster for someone needing to wear tuck in shirts. One request I have for Alien Gear? IWB Tuckable Magazine holsters to match. Pretty Please! I would love to be carrying my 2 extra mags also and it would help balance out the load.

Oh, how the hell could I forget price??? You WILL NOT find a comparable holster for the same price. Don’t let the price fool you. This holster is, in my opinion better than holsters costing twice as much.

I gotta admit, one of the reasons I choose Alien Gear is because they are not only committed to the 2nd amendment, they also have a sense of humor!

As a prepper you should know the importance of good tires on your bug out vehicle… or just your daily driver… and especially if they are the same vehicle like mine. In this review I share my experiences with the Cooper Discoverer AT3.

Overall this is an excellent all around tire for the price. I have very little complaints about them. Lets break the review down by terrain.

City. Not a lot to talk about here. The tires look good rolling on my slightly lifted ’01 Cherokee Sport.


This is my type of city traffic!!!!

Highway. One would expect an AT tire to be moderately loud on the highway but I was pleasantly surprised. They were actually quieter than the all seasons I had on the jeep. Handling at speed is fine and I’ve had these tires up to 95mph without problems (during a family emergency).

Rain. These tires are excellent in rain. They effortlessly shed water even beyond their speed rating. Hitting a puddle at 80? You will hydroplane. That’s your fault not the tire’s.

Dirt / Gravel road. They are predictably good here as you would expect an AT tire to be. Almost an imperceptible amount of drift and they are not overly stiff so they ride great over the harsh bumps of your typical New England dirt road.

Mud. First of all these are NOT mud bogging tires but they perform ok in moderately deep (rim) mud. Once you go deeper though they start to loose traction significantly. If you’re going to use them for mud you might want air lockers. Otherwise make sure you have some momentum going before you hit the mud.


Rocks. I’ve ascended some pretty steep rocks in my lightly modified Cherokee with these tires and there was very little slippage. Keep in mind though I have the LT tires not the off-road tires.

Snow. Before I go here it may be more a vehicle issue than a tire issue. Let me explain. The Cherokee Sports are very light for a 4×4 suv and I’m running 265/75-15 tires with a 3″ lift. These are basically a 31″ tire only without all the extra plys for hard offroading. The combination of wide tires on a light weight vehicle may be the issue here. So how does my vehicle deal with snow with these tires? That depends on the type. Lets break it down.

Hard pack snow. They work as expected on hard pack. In fact they handle almost like they do on a dirt road with just a little bit of drift.

Deep snow. Now we have issues. At slower speeds (under 25mph) they do fine but as soon as the speed increases they “snowplane”. It’s like hydroplaning only on snow. The snow tosses me all over the road forcing me to slow down. Now before you blame this on my driving keep this in mind. I’m a commercial driver with millions of miles underneath my belt. I’m the senior road trainer at my job and I have skid pad training under my belt on all major styles of drive trains.

Wet snow. Otherwise known as slush, grease, snot and winter mud. Behavior on this medium is very similar to the heavy snow with some minor differences. Instead of the slush pushing me around I push it around but if it’s thick enough I still float on top of it at higher speeds.

Ice. It has been an unusual winter this year in the northeast so I have yet to encounter ice. When I do I’ll update this review.

Overall these are great tires for the price. I got 4 for under $500. They are not hard core offroaders but as long as your not doing that or going 80 in deep snow or mud they should serve you well on you BOV or everyday rig.

I highly recommend you buy these tires!
