YouTube is an absolutely incredible source of information on almost anything you can think of. Every week we feature a new video related to a variety of topics such as firearms, first aid, gardening, security, food storage, water filtration….and current events.
This weeks video is essentially political in nature – leave no doubt about it. I believe it points out the truth to what has happened

The following article was published over at The Pigeon Pages by Sally LeMaster. Miss LeMaster is an investigative reporter who is on an endless pursuit for the truth – in an effort to get this country back from the clutches of those who are in the process of destroying it. The world of this article are right in line with my thinking. – Rourke

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

I have recently been talking with a few people about the direction of ModernSurvivalOnline. I want to reach out to as many people as possible and deliver some quality content assisting others in a variety of ways. One aspect of “reaching” others is related to politics. More than one suggested I stay away from politics (and religion I might add) as it is controversial and may push some people away. I appreciate that advice however

I’m sure you’ve heard about Cantor’s election loss to David Brat, whose main financer was an auto repair shop. The experts are busy interpreting what this must mean, as usual they get it mostly wrong. I think a slight rewrite of Thomas Jefferson’s famous quote fits well “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of incumbents”. Cantor’s loss is being portrayed as “extremist TEA PARTY growing pains” by

I’ve been staying away from politics this year. What with the remodel and trying to acquire a modicum of competence at competition shooting I haven’t really had the time. Plus the fact that I’m pretty sick of the whole thing. But I can’t help chuckling from time to time at the obtuseness

It is sickening to see the number of BLATANT people with the entitlement mindset. There are people that are down on their luck and I have no problem giving them a hand, but the government needs to stay out of it. The other morning on the way to work there was a guy standing at a set of lights with a sign that said “HOMELESS VET – PLEASE HELP”. I called the guy

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 Federal Government is out of control and there is no solution in sight.
The Obama administration has not hid the fact that they are soft on illegal immigration and a recent report provides proof that in 2013 their policies allowed for the release of murders, drunk drivers, assaults, drugs, weapons – and even “flight escape”. “Flight escape”? Seriously? An illegal immigrant designated a flight risk is chosen as a good candidate for early release? Unbelievable.
Immigration officials knowingly released dozens of murderers and thousands of drunken

It is amazing some of the things that both President Obama AND his wife have said and the mainstream media give them a complete pass. If a Republican had stated that they believed that some rights could just be thrown to the side when the timing seemed right the news would be all over it.
In todays world a politician on the Left side of an issue can say most anything and get away with

Essentials of Prepping: Prepping and praying and pass the bullets please
POLITICS, AND HOPE
Politics, a word made dirty by too many of our elected officials, by desperate office holders seeking to do anything, make any promise, make any compromise, in order ‘keep their jobs’ and get re-elected.
Like our ‘progressive’ income tax where each pays ‘his fair share,’ government has the reward system backwards. I would limit every elected position

An Obituary printed in the London Times…..Absolutely Dead Brilliant!!
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
– Knowing when to come in out of the rain; –

If you watched President Obama’s State of the Union speech you likely saw what I saw: A ridiculous stream of biased and partisan rhetoric filled with half-truths or outright lies. Worst ever I have ever watched – regardless of the political party.
Man – it is frustrating but not surprising. This division in Congress and apparent division within the people of these United States is false. I have friends that are Democrats. We have far

“A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor and bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.” Thomas Jefferson

You know…..the government taxes the living $#*% out of us and continues to spend more and more money while taking more and more. It is a never ending cycle of irresponsible fiscal policy that is happening right n front of the American people and there is hardly an uproar. Sure – there are some of us who speak the truth and there are groups (like the Tea Party) as well – but just look at

Every so often I express my views regarding politics here on ModernSurvivalOnline. Almost every time I do I get a negative comment or two – as well as a few emails stating that they do not like me offering my opinion on a preparedness site. The reasoning is generally two fold:
1. First and most often is the reader has a different opinion and is on the opposite side of the political

I stumbled across this and got to thinking. OK, the supposed experts that are in charge of this train wreck are saying that they are expecting anywhere from 2 to 3 million people to sign up or have signed up by the end of the year. A goal of 7 million people by March 31 of 2014 and at an estimated cost of 2.6 trillion

Below is an excerpt from thenewspaper.com……
North Carolina Appeals Court Allows HOAs To Arrest For DUI North Carolina Appeals Court allows armed HOA security guards to conduct traffic stops that would be illegal for police to make.
Rental cops hired by homeowners associations (HOA) can conduct traffic stops that would be unconstitutional if performed by an actual police officer, according to a ruling handed down last week by the North Carolina Court of Appeals.

Take a look at this video. Although it is rather humorous it does provide some insight to the passive nature of citizens and shows how uninformed the public is (which keeps voting these crooks in). Thanks “D.” for sending this in.

If you have some level of faith – it is an excellent read coming from a unique perspective looking at this countries increasingly “godification” of government and this Administration. – – Rourke
