A Call To Action (Support Modern Survival Blog)

As many of you know, the tech monopolies of the internet are quite actively engaging in political censorship. For websites and social media that express viewpoints counter to their own ideologies they are suppressing free speech by manipulating search results, demonetization – restricting / removing advertising revenue, removing content on social media sites, and they’re even wiping some sites/channels entirely. It has been stunning to observe here in the USA. It is real and it is happening.

We too have been affected to an extent by simply being a preparedness website, expressing views of conservatism, constitutionalism, self reliance & self sufficiency, liberty & independence, the occasional firearms topic & support of our 2nd Amendment, commentary on ‘deep state’ corruption, you get the idea… (anything counter to their far ‘left’ ideals). And I’m pretty sure that it’s going to continue to get worse for all of us.

WHAT WILL RUSSIA DO NOW?
Given the US bombing Syria last night, including the capital, Damascus, and given that Russia said there will be consequences, one wonders what that will be…

This morning there are claims that they shot down 71 of 103 Tomahawks.

Haven’t checked all reports yet of damage/collateral damage. As far as I know, no ships were sunk. No nukes flew last night. That’s good… Perhaps the Russians will retaliate on the economic front. They could shut off gas flow to Europe, they could stop exporting their Titanium to the US. We shall see.

Headlines this morning:

Putin declares US-led Syria strike an ‘act of aggression’
Putin called the strike a “destructive influence on the entire system of international relations” and said Moscow would call for an emergency of the U.N. Security Council.

“The worst apprehensions have come true,” Anatoly Antonov, Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., tweeted Friday. “Our warnings have been left unheard.”

“A pre-designed scenario is being implemented,” Antonov said.

“Again, we are being threatened. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences. All responsibility for them rests with Washington, London and Paris.”

“Insulting the President of Russia is unacceptable and inadmissible,”
