Why Are Dozens Of High Ranking Officers Being Purged From The U.S. Military?

Aerial-View-Of-The-Pentagon-Photo-by-Mariordo-Camila-Ferreira-and-Mario-Duran-300x199

The post was originally published over at The American Dream. It can be seen in its original format HERE.

Since Barack Obama has been in the White House, high ranking military officers have been removed from their positions at a rate that is absolutely unprecedented.  Things have gotten so bad that a number of retired generals are publicly speaking out about the “purge” of the U.S. military that they believe is taking place.  As you will see below, dozens of highly decorated military leaders have been dismissed from their positions over the past few years.  So why is this happening?

Have a Kindle? One Second After only $2.99

download

At the time of this publishing the classic prepper fiction book “One Second After” is available on Amazon for only $2.99 (Kindle Edition).

If you have a Kindle and have not read One Second After – I highly recommend it.

Here is a summary from Amazon.com:

In this entertaining apocalyptic thriller from Forstchen (We Look Like Men of War), a high-altitude nuclear bomb of uncertain origin explodes, unleashing a deadly electromagnetic pulse that instantly disables almost every electrical device in the U.S. and elsewhere in the world. Airplanes, most cars, cellphones, refrigerators—all are fried as the country plunges

Guest Post: Why You Need To Garden Now

small-vegetable-garden

This post was originally posted back in 211 and its contents still hold true. It can be seen in its original format HERE.

by J.Burk

It’s easy to find excuses not to garden: I’m too busy, I don’t want to ruin the lawn, I don’t have enough space, I’ll start when I move to the country. There might even be a few who bought a container of heirloom seeds, tossed it into the freezer and checked gardening off their to-do list.

 

The main fallacy in all these excuses is that you need all the experience

The Panhandle Rancher speaks…..Prepping and praying and pass the bullets please

Essentials of Prepping:   Prepping and praying and pass the bullets please

 

That great social democrat FDR once proclaimed, “All we have to fear is fear itself,” and that sentence galvanized the nation into action. Nowadays many of us have come to fear our blighted but powerful rich Uncle.

 

I have walked boldly through life sure in the knowledge that one day I shall die and after that, the judgment. God does not look at death the way man does. I repeat, God does not look at death the way man does. Recognition and acceptance of one’s own

Tensions ease in Nevada

bundyranch

 

It appears that the standoff in Nevada over cattle grazing, endangered tortoises, and owed grazing fees is over – at least for now. The Bureau of Land Management withdrew it agents and efforts to round up cattle due to a “serious concern” over the safety of its employees, and the public.

I am hoping that the entire matter is the last we will hear of it and a peaceful resolution can be found.

Just prior to the announcement from the BLM I came across a couple video’s from April 9th that I was going to share. No reason not

This post was published yesterday over at The Blaze. The events transpiring in Nevada are not only discomforting….but I believe a sign of the times as well as those to come. The article can be seen in its original format here – – – >http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/04/10/tense-video-feds-taser-pro-nevada-rancher-protester-during-clash/

 

The standoff between a Nevada rancher and the U.S. government escalated Wednesday when protesters confronted federal agents tasked with the chore of rounding up approximately 900 “trespass cattle.”

The confrontation, captured on video, resulted in one protester, the rancher’s son, being hit with a stun gun while another, the rancher’s daughter, was pushed to the ground. One

TEOTWAWKI Bartering (A different look!)

bartering

 

By “The Coach”

            There have been many articles written on “Survival Bartering”. Most are very well written. However, in this article I plan on taking a different look at “Survival Bartering” post TEOTWAWKI.

            Post Hurricane Katrina in the New Orleans metro area, no merchant would accept credit cards, debit cards or checks of any type. The electricity and telephones were not working and merchants did not have a way to verify if credit cards, debit cards or checks were valid. Merchants also did not have a way to find out what gold or silver was

Sustainable Livestock for SHTF……SHEEP

PolishMerino

 

By P Tabakaru

Do your prep plans include the addition of a small flock of sheep for fresh, meat, milk and or wool, for creating fabrics? The addition of just a few could mean the difference between life and death. They are great multipurpose animal that requires just a little care.

You have to ask yourself what would you like the most, meat, milk, wool? There are certain breeds that are specific, and there are dual purpose breeds, but in a SHTF situation any breed will do.

If you aren’t interested in wool (merino, Romney, Columbia, Lincoln breeds) then

The Panhandle Rancher speaks……Re: Essentials of Prepping

Re: Essentials of Prepping

Prepping and praying and pass the bullets please.

I strongly suspect prepper burnout is a direct result of new found awareness of how vulnerable we are both as individuals and as a nation. It is this very awareness that drives many to prepare for exceedingly remote happenstances. In a way, this is like asking how many cartridges are enough, 100, 1000, 10,000? If a hundred rounds will get you through the week and 10,000 a lifetime, then what about your children’s lifetime? Why not then stock a million rounds?  Insidious? You bet it is and

News you Need to Know……

preparedness news, newspaper

 The news is presented in an effort to provide information related to current events that may effect our lives in one way or another. Government intrusion and its efforts to demean the United States Constitution are often highlighted. Other news which may be related in one way or another to the many reasons we prepare are also showcased in an effort to keep you informed….and possibly motivated.

Through The Eyes Of A Young Prepper

emergency-survival-preparedness-kit

 

By TP

As a teenage prepper, who has scoured the immense depths of the internet to view many of the available prepping forums and how-to’s, read every survival book that I could get my hands on, and also has spoken to quite a few outdoor enthusiasts…I would like to discuss a couple of topics that have caught my attention about that the prepper community as a whole, which I have observed within the community that these topics have either been overlooked or in some cases have not had an agreed consensus amongst the prepper community on

Wilderness Treatments for Burns

By Rose Cceberio, RN, BSN 

Today, if one is out and about camping, hiking, or on a dry run or for real “Bug Out” route, one can encounter a few things alone the wilderness path that can cause bodily harm. Unless you thought of everything and you’re hiking with a 100 lb backpack, even then, anything can happen and you may be fresh out of supplies other than Old Mother Nature can provide.  If so, never fear, for if you get hurt, there are plenty of ways to treat yourself and others, if you are calm, confident

Integration of hand, knife and gun in grid down

By Bret Gould

 

Unless one lives under a rock, we have seen the dawn of the police state.  An overbearing mailed fist that will use Homeland Security, private contractors and Russian troops to disarm us and subjugate us.  In this time we will have to use every means at our disposal to survive and thrive.  Thus will will have to harken back to skills from a bygone era.  We will have to acquit ourselves on the field by hand , knife and gun.  The question is how? The reason is, like it or not, we have a storm

POLL: Do you use Facebook?

survival poll

 

I am working on some ideas to increase traffic coming to ModernSurvivalOnline. One of the areas of marketing  I have not participated in very much is Social Media. If you would take a moment I would appreciate it if you would answer this simple question – Do you use Facebook?

I know many do not and that is totally fine. Fact is that many do and it is viable method to reaching new readers.

Thanks – Rourke

Interview: John Hollerman, author – EMP: Equipping Modern Patriots

EMP-book

 

I have a difficult time finishing a book once I start reading it. I am so busy and my mind gets distracted easily. EMP: Equipping Modern Patriots – With a Story of Survival was written by Jonathan Hollerman. It was absolutely an exception as I could not wait to turn the page to see what would happen next. Compared to many “prepper” fiction books I have read (or started to read) Equipping Modern Patriots was realistic and plausible.

 

Here is a summary of the book from Amazon.com:
