The following list of each state reveals even more search words from the people living there.
Thinking about moving to that ‘perfect’ place or BOL in another state?

What did you do for your preparedness this week? (2015-05-02)

May 2, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

Our resident ‘red squirrel’

The week is nearly past us, but it’s not too late to do something for your own preparedness. We’re living in an uncertain world in uncharted waters. For the astute, there’s realization that those waters are dotted with icebergs. Will the ship that we’re on be able to successfully navigate around them or will we soon hear the gashing of metal?

So, what have you done this week for preparedness?

The Crash, The Reset, Martial Law By This Time Next Year?

May 1, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin


I recently read a quote by Bill Hotler which rang very true.
“It takes only a small amount of force to topple someone on a tightrope.”

In my opinion (and many others) the present financial system is walking a tightrope and it’s not going to take much of a breeze to topple it. There has been wide speculation in the alt-news world and blogosphere that a major reset is coming this year, which may even lead to failure, collapse, and possibly Martial Law.

My Pressure Canned Chicken

April 29, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin


Recently we bought 20 pounds of chicken breast which was on sale at a deep discount. Although we do keep some meat stored in the freezer (get it while on sale!) another way to preserve it is by canning it yourself. Long term storage of the jars require no refrigeration, making canning your own foods are great way to be prepared.

Here’s how we canned our own chicken:

‘Jade Helm 15′ Military Drill

April 28, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin


The upcoming “JADE HELM 15 – Master the Human Domain” ‘domestic’ military drill has created a storm of controversy all over the internet, and for good reason. There are LOTS of questions surrounding the motives and details of the exercise which is doing more than just raising a few eyebrows.

Operation JADE HELM 15 will commence July-15 (until September-15) in the American southwest (as in, all of it) (Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado) and is a ‘domestic’ military training exercise which some say may violate the Posse Comitatus Act (while others say it technically does not).

The ‘drill’ apparently has the military working in acceptance of, or some cooperation with, state-county-local domestic law enforcement agencies and will include Special Operations Command, the special forces of the military services, the 82nd Airborne, elements of Marine Expeditionary Unit(s), and interagency partners, which refers to other departments and agencies of the federal government, including – reportedly – the FBI and DEA.

Never before has such a drill of this apparent scope and magnitude occurred on US soil, and while military training exercises happen all the time, and while many or most of them are unknown to the public, this drill has a purpose – Training has purpose. The only reason you would train on this scale and in this place, is to evaluate your operational abilities in an English speaking, Western environment
