There just might be hope…..

ku

Recently in my efforts to understand the declining quality of humanity – I have not seen much to be positive about. Most people in the United States continue to have their world revolve around “Dancing with the Stars”, “what can I get that makes me look important”, and a total disregard of what should be truly cherished in life. “Patriotism” for many means nothing and is lacking in much of the population. The unity felt

Agenda: Grinding America Down

I just got finished watching the documentary Agenda: Grinding America Down for about the 12th or 13th time. Back in February of 2013 I wrote the words below. Thought I would mention it again as it is very enlightening and really gets you thinking. I highly recommend it:

Below is a trailer for a movie/documentary called Agenda: Grinding America Down. It is controversial, but from my perspective very enlightening as to what has been happening

The Obama Administration has a plan to pay off the $17 Trillion in US Debt.

obama

The Current administration has unveiled a plan to settle 100% of the US debt, most notably the $1.28 Trillion owed to China. Sen. Reid (Nevada) & Sen. Pelosi (CA) fully support this revolutionary Debt Elimination Amendment. The plan helps explain why the US Government was so determined to seize the open land used by cattle farmers in Nevada and Texas over the past several years. It also explains why the EPA is working so close

Welfare. What is the answer?

Welfare-State1

A popular topic on many of the blogosphere regarding survival and preparedness is the ability to defend yourself and those you love from the ‘golden horde’ in the event of an economic, social, or other type of collapse. In recent years the silver screen has even portrayed cannibalism as a real possibility in such times. The answer seems to be to either bug in or bug out with your ample food stores, and then to

Picture of the Day

potd

Political cartoons can provide a bit of humor at times – but this one pretty much summarizes the situation pretty well. The world is becoming more and more dangerous with each passing day. The Middle East is as unstable as it has been in quite some time. Tensions with Russia are higher now than they have been in in years. China is now the world largest economy. We have more illegal aliens and possibly terrorists

Kissing Freedom Goodbye

This article was originally published over at JamesRobison.net. It can be seen HERE in its original format.

You can kiss freedom in America goodbye unless those who say they know and love God stand together against the forces of deception and destruction. If we don’t act now, it will be too late to halt evil’s intent, which is the destruction of meaningful life and freedom. This has always been Satan’s goal,

Obama places a bullseye on American soldiers backs

Captured Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was traded for five Gitmo Taliban detainees. Now – these were not just a bad guys suspected of a wee bit of terrorist activities. No – these guys were the worst of the worse. In fact, the Taliban has tried to get them released for close to a decade. These guys have been considered extremely high risk detainees and believed that if ever released would pose a threat to wage

The Complete Chronology of the Benghazi Deception

hc

What follows is a reprint of a post from The National Review which outlines the events prior, during, and after the Benghazi terrorist attack of September 11th, 2012. I have heard from several friends and co-workers that they are sick of hearing of Benghazi and that it is just not important. I wonder of it was one of their fathers,brothers, or sons that lost their life that day if they would feel the same. The

An Obituary printed in the London Times…..Absolutely Dead Brilliant!!

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

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

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

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.

Another ammunition shortage coming? Shouldn’t be.

monarch-ammo

There are rumors all over that Russian-made ammunition may be banned from importation. The root cause of this rumor is an Executive Order signed by Obama in an attempt to punish Russia for their actions in Crimea. This is what the EO states:

Section 1. (a) All property and interests in property that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or

The U.S. could suffer a coast-to-coast blackout if saboteurs knocked out just nine of the country’s 55,000 electric-transmission substations on a scorching summer day, according to a previously unreported federal analysis.

The study by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission concluded that coordinated attacks in each of the nation’s three separate electric systems could cause the entire power network to collapse, people familiar with

Although I am not going to get into the specific equation which is used to arrive at the current score of “80″ – the current score reaches that level due to several influencing factors including:

The conflict and apparent aggression by Russia in the Ukraine could cause an economic ripple across Europe and over to the
