If War Were To Break Out Between The US and Russia…

June 20, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

“If tomorrow a war were to break out between the US and Russia, it is guaranteed that the US would be obliterated.”

I recently read the quote above from an article on allnewspipeline sourcing a group of Russian insiders living in America, who also said, “If there is going to be a war with Russia, then the United States will most certainly be destroyed, and most of us will end up dead.”

There would no longer be…

-an electric grid
-no internet
-no oil and gas pipelines
-no interstate highway system
-no air transportation
-no GPS-based navigation
-Financial centers would lie in ruins
-Government at every level would cease to function
-US armed forces, stationed all around the globe, would no longer be resupplied
-At a maximum, the entire landmass of the US would be covered by a layer of radioactive ash

“We tell you this not to be alarmist, but because, based on everything we know, we are ourselves alarmed. If attacked, Russia will not back down; she will retaliate, and she will utterly annihilate the United States.”

Vegetable Garden Staggered Planting Every Two Weeks

June 19, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

Depending on the growing time to maturity (time to harvest) for a given vegetable you might consider a two week staggered planting delay instead of starting everything all at once.

Why might this be a good idea?

The Stark Political Party Affiliation Contrasted With Population Density

June 15, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin


Population Density Map United States
Red = 5,000 or greater -people per square mile!

 
It is generally well known that population density is directly related, associated and proportional to political party affiliation.

When tightly packed humans live shoulder-to-shoulder in a geographically small area, their political outlook and ideals are often very different from other humans who live in places with more “breathing room” – places where they’re not constantly bumping into each other.

I came across a very interesting statistic and visualization which presents a stark, blunt, and outright undeniable reality that we are divided here in America not only by our political ideals, but by geographical regions. There literally are lines in the sand. When you cross from one side to the other, you are entering a different political world…

Republican Congress Member Shot

June 14, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

MEMBER OF CONGRESS SHOT (House Majority Whip, Steve Scalise)

GUNMAN: ‘KILL AS MANY REPUBLICANS AS POSSIBLE’

Gunman opens fire at congressional baseball practice…

Left-Wing TWITTER Celebrates…

SHOOTER NAMED…
Identified As Never-Trumper James Hodgkinson:
“Mr. President You Are Biggest A$$hole Ever”
Belongs to Anti-GOP Groups…
‘It’s Time To Destroy Trump & Co’…

 
These are some of the headlines popping up around the country following a shooting this morning at a congressional baseball practice for tomorrow’s annual charity game where GOP members were playing ball.

Law enforcement officials identified the shooter to be “James T. Hodgkinson” who apparently had been involved with anti-GOP groups and had recently posted online, “Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co”.

He apparently asked at the ball field, “Are Those Republicans or Democrats Out There?” before he began shooting.

 
Later, Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Ill., specifically blamed “political rhetorical terrorism” – heated rhetoric on social media and in the news – for Wednesday’s shooting, in which House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and several others were wounded.

 
My question for you is this:

Will we look back at this as the first shot fired in this (up until now) non-shooting “civil war”?

Given the countless threats and suggestions of extreme violence against Trump and “the Right” that have been allowed and even promoted (by the mainstream media), has this been encouraging others to “act out”? Will there be more?

Level-1 Prepping and Preparedness -Kids and Pets

June 14, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

While we concern ourselves with the basics of prepping and preparedness, it is likewise important to consider our kids and pets!

They have unique needs too and your life will be a whole lot easier if you plan your preparedness around them as well.

During an “event” which requires the implementation of your preparedness plan, your kids (depending on their age) might become anxious, scared, or even excited. It’s best to recognize that this may happen and to deal with it in a way that will settle and calm them.

Your young kids might be better off not knowing the extent of the “event” that you’re dealing with. That’s a judgement call on your part. Be aware that your own anxiety will definitely transfer to your kids, so remain calm yourself.

Kids are easily distracted. Take advantage of that and get them involved with some activities that may be fun for them during the time period. Chances are that the electricity will be off, so they may be going through gadget-withdrawal.

Time to refocus on fun things that don’t require electricity to remain entertained…

Here are a few ideas:
