With Only a Little Over a Month to Go, are You Prepped?

I’m wondering how many of you have taken the time to follow some of the many prepper/survival sites I’ve pointed you to, and more importantly taken a few steps to prepare for the unrest growing and likely to spread in the coming weeks, months and (hopefully not!) years!

If you haven’t started, it isn’t too late.  Be sure to have a look at Survival Pulse regularly (that is a news aggregator for prepper sites) to see what is new daily.

Being prepared is a sensible way to live, so don’t let caricatures of preppers living in bunkers deter you.

I am learning a lot! Here are a few stories I’ve found interesting recently.

Survivalist? Prepper? What is the Difference?  See the history of the survival movement here at Survivopedia.

I especially liked: The Great Conservative Migration And What It Means For The Future at Alt-Market.com

The signs really began to become visible at the end of January, 2020; there was an exodus of people brewing, and it was galvanizing fears on both sides of the political spectrum. The pandemic situation is cited by the mainstream media as the primary cause, but in reality the migration had started at least 3 years earlier. Americans were leaving certain states and cities behind by the tens of thousands, and these places were predominantly leftist in their policies and population. California, New York, Illinois, New Jersey, Maryland, Massachusetts, Connecticut, etc.; all of these progressive states were bleeding residents since 2017, the pandemic just accelerated the situation.

There are a number of reasons given for the dramatic shift in population, but two specific reasons stand above the rest: Economy and political ideals. The pandemic itself is only a minor motivator. Consider the fact that residents of California left the state in droves for Texas over the summer DESPITE the problem of Covid infection spikes in major metropolitan areas of the Lone Star State. People didn’t care, they just wanted to get the hell out of California as quickly as possible.

[….]

… in my view the BEST case scenario we can possibly hope for as conservatives is a balkanization of the US based on ideals and principles. According to the economic data and social upheaval I am seeing, I think there is little chance we can save the whole country in the short term. Instead, conservatives organizing together regionally is the best bet in stopping widespread unconstitutional changes to our laws and usurpation of our culture.

Over the years I’ve had e-mails from readers asking me where in America they should move in order to live a quiet conservative life. I have a few ideas.

And then long-time prepper blogger Daisy Luther is frustrated because she thinks yakking about who is responsible for our present turmoil is keeping people from getting the basic facts on how to personally survive an event, a riot, a pandemic, a wildfire, or whatever.

Your first obligation is to your family. Make sure you and your family are ready to personally survive, she says.

At The Organic Prepper:

SURVIVAL Is Just About Surviving

 

You have to prioritize the thing that is most likely to immediately kill you.

During the event, it doesn’t matter who’s responsible. It doesn’t matter if it was a set-up for some political agenda or if it was paid for by some rich dude who’s up in everyone’s business. Sometimes in this community, people can be so dismissive that those who really want to learn how to survive a violent event feel foolish. There are people who belittle valuable advice because they’re so hung up on their theories about the events.

When bullets are real, it doesn’t matter who is firing them at you or why. What matters during the event is surviving it.

If you haven’t done enough to be prepared, get to work while deliveries can be made and store shelves are relatively full.  So what if the S*** never hits the fan in coming weeks and months, you can chuckle about all those cans of beans in the basement while thanking God we made it through a moment in history when we possibly could lose it all, that is lose America as we loved it.

Media Matters Does What They Think is Major Hit Piece on Delaware Senate Candidate

But, their hysterical, vitriolic piece is a treasure trove of information that many of you will find useful.

Republican Senate Candidate Lauren Witzke wants a MORATORIUM on immigration to America!

Perhaps the most valuable reason for you to read their screed against the remarkable Lauren Witzke is so you know where you might find information on who the Hard Left/Marxists hate the most.

It looks like the news site VDARE is at the top of their list.

Someone asked me yesterday about why anyone would sign up for news alerts from the likes of CAIR (for example) or Media Matters, and of course it is because you must know about the enemy and what they are doing and saying.

So here is Media Matters going after a long-shot Senate candidate in Joe Biden’s Delaware linking her to their most feared boogeymen—white nationalists.

Since calling someone a “racist” is losing its power, the Left has settled on “white nationalist” as the next best epithet that could cause good/weak people (they hope) to run in horror.

GOP-backed Senate candidate Lauren Witzke frequently shares content from white nationalist site VDare

 

U.S. Senate candidate Lauren Witzke has frequently shared content from VDare, a leading white nationalist site that also pushes anti-Semitism. Witzke, a QAnon supporter who also has the backing of the Delaware Republican Party, has additionally twice thanked anti-Semitic commentator Faith Goldy for supporting her campaign.

Witzke is a Republican who is running a longshot campaign against Democratic incumbent Sen. Chris Coons. She has expressed support for QAnon and recently defended the conspiracy theory as “just a bunch of people who want pedophiles held accountable and from what I understand it’s absolutely harmless.” In reality, the conspiracy theory has been repeatedly linked to acts of violence and the FBI has labeled it a potential domestic terror threat.

This is what the Soros-backed Media Matters is most afraid of!

One of Witzke’s main policy plans is “a full 10-year moratorium on all immigration,” a proposal that VDaresupports.

VDare is a white nationalist site that heavily attacks immigrants. The Southern Poverty Law Center states that it “regularly publishes articles by prominent white nationalists, race scientists and anti-Semites.”

VDare publishes posts that carry such headlines as: “One Problem With These Hispanic Immigrants Is Their Disgusting Behavior,” “Indians Aren’t That Intelligent (On Average),” “Diversity Is Strength! It’s Also…Hispanic Immigrants Taking Over FBI’s Ten Most Wanted,” “America Does Not Need ANY Immigrants From Africa,” and “Roll Over, JIHAD—There’s Also HIJRA, Muslim Conquest By Immigration.”

MN Rep Ilhan Omar Objects to ICE Deportation Flight to Somalia

She says she is concerned that the criminal Somalis being deported will take the Chinese Virus with them to Somalia! 

Is she representing Somalia or America?

BTW, when I first started writing about Somali refugee criminals and terrorists, the US was not deporting any of them claiming it was not humane to send migrants home to hellhole countries.  My! My! how times have changed!

From Fox News:

ICE deportation flight, objected to by Omar over COVID fears, included convicted murderer, rapist

Omar had said it was ‘cruel’ to deport immigrants during a pandemic

 

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deportation flight to Somalia — which faced objections from Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., due to fears about the potential spread of COVID-19 — included criminals with convictions for rape, murder and assault, the agency said in a letter to the congresswoman.

“This week, ICE removed 39 Somalia nationals, 36 of whom have criminal histories,” Acting ICE Director Tony Pham said in a letter to Omar. “These crimes include murder, rape, domestic violence, assault, sexual assault, crimes against children, drug trafficking, and conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.”

He also included a list of case backgrounds that he said “should give you reason to applaud the good work ICE has done to protect the American people, including the people of the State of Minnesota.”

Here is what ICE told her in a letter sent September 18th (sorry I couldn’t get a clearer pic):

Pro-Immigration Church Awarded $1 million from Tyson Foods

Grants are “given to organizations that are advancing the cause of lasting change for our society.”

(Tyson press release, September 1, 2020)

If you have followed Refugee Resettlement Watch for the last decade you know that Tyson Foods is one of a handful of BIG MEAT companies with global reach that depends heavily on low-skilled migrant workers for a constantly overturning workforce.

And, while we are all focused on the election, the Chinese Virus and burning cities (as we should be!), pro-immigrant churches (the religious Left) and other non-profits are continuing their quiet work of changing America by changing the people.

For more than you ever wanted to know about Tyson Foods, go here at RRW.

Earlier this year the Tyson Foods plant in Logansport, Indiana was closed due to a huge percentage of the workforce testing positive for the Chinese Virus. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/nearly-900-workers-tyson-foods-plant-indiana-test-positive-coronavirus-n1197776

 

Now this, from the Wesleyan Church:

Immigrant Connection receives $1 million corporate donation

 

Tyson Foods announced on September 1 that Immigrant Connection (IC), a nonprofit affiliated with The Wesleyan Church, was one of five organizations “advancing the cause of lasting change for our society” awarded $1 million. The Equal Justice Initiative, The Executive Leadership Council, The National Urban League and The Smithsonian were the other four. IC was the only organization voted a recipient by Tyson Food team members.

Wow! Zach Szmara has a direct pipeline to God

“Apart from God, this is utterly unimaginable,” said Immigrant Connection Director Rev. Zach Szmara. “To even be in the same conversation as organizations like The National Urban League, The Executive Leadership Council, The Smithsonian and The Equal Justice Initiative is a witness to two profound truths I have learned — God has favorites, and immigrants are one of his ‘favorite four’ (the poor, the widow, the orphan and the foreigner living among us).

God absolutely loves seeing the marginalized lifted up in counter-cultural ways so he receives all the glory that he is due.”

An employee at Tyson Foods, which has a plant in Logansport, Indiana, where Szmara also pastors The Bridge Church [see photo above about the plant closure there—ed], relayed to Szmara that he has “never encountered anything like Immigrant Connection” — that IC is doing important work that is needed and is making a difference.

Twenty-one IC sites have been launched in Wesleyan churches within the U.S. since its inception in 2014. Two new locations are pending approval as IC sites with the U.S. Department of Justice.***

More than 8,000 immigrants from over 125 countries have been assisted through IC which has become the largest Protestant church-based immigrant legal aid organization in the United States.

More here.

***I did not know what this was about: “approval” from the DOJ?  So I looked around and found that the US Department of Justice has an entire branch that helps immigrants connect with legal services, see here.  I suspect there is federal grant money involved as well.

New American Reza Aslan Makes his Dangerous Anti-America Views Clear

I have to admit that until his now infamous tweet on Friday evening in the wake of the death of Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg, the name Reza Aslan was not in the forefront of my mind.

It should have been because he is also the author of another infamous tweet (I think we have all heard these words): “Have you ever seen a more punchable face than this kid’s?” referring to teenager Nick Sandmann.

Iranian ‘refugee’ Reza Aslan has now topped that with a tweet demonstrating that his Islam-is-peaceful shtick is just that—a pathetic performance.

 

Bruce Bawer writing at American Greatness tells us all we need to know about a man America saved from possible death in Iran who now spews his hatefulness toward the President, indeed toward America because we presume he means what he says—burn it all down.

He might as well be saying ‘death to America.’ (I wonder if the FBI stopped by his home to ask him what exactly he means by that?)

 

The Loathsomeness of Reza Aslan

No one who was familiar with Aslan’s writings should have been terribly surprised by his Friday night tweet, which some would justifiably describe as an explicit threat of physical violence.

 

Apparently, it was the author’s most attention-getting tweet since January 19, 2019, when—in the wake of the instantly famous encounter at the Lincoln Memorial involving a group of polite MAGA cap-wearing boys from Covington High School in Kentucky, a drum-banging Native American provocateur named Nathan Phillips, and a trash-talking gang of Black Hebrew Israelites—the selfsame author posted the now-iconic picture of one of the boys, Nick Sandmann, standing calmly in the face of Phillips’ provocation, and wrote:

“Have you ever seen a more punchable face than this kid’s?”

The author in question was Reza Aslan, who, when he himself was a kid, fled the Iranian Revolution with his parents for the United States, where he grew up in the Bay Area. He went on to collect a B.A. in religious studies from Santa Clara University, an M.A. in theological studies from Harvard, an MFA in fiction writing from the University of Iowa, and a Ph.D. in sociology from UC Santa Barbara. His first book, No god but God (2005), whitewashed Islam and blamed Islamic terror on Western imperialism; the predictable plaudits in such left-wing organs as the New York Times, New York Review of Books, Los Angeles Times, and Financial Times made it a “worldwide success” (The Guardian) and launched his career as a “multimedia force” (L.A. Review of Books).

“We are one 911-style terror attack from the end of America!”

For a religion-of-peace promoter he sure has threatened violence more than once. Here in 2018 https://www.salon.com/2018/04/30/fired-cnn-host-reza-aslan-its-time-to-treat-donald-trump-as-an-enemy-of-the-state/

 

In addition to his books, Aslan has served as a consultant on Islam for various media projects. He hosted a short-lived CNN religion series, “Believer,” on which, in one memorable episode, he ate part of a human brain. He’s sat on the board of the National Iranian American Council, which lobbies for the Mullahs in Iran, and he’s given talks under the auspices of groups linked to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. In several articles over the years, the indispensable Robert Spencer has documented Aslan’s chronic dishonesty about a wide range of topics, from Islam and Christianity to his own academic credentials.

[….]

Presentable in appearance, measured in tone, he packaged himself at once as a standard-issue left-winger and as an authentic believer in an orthodox yet somehow “modern” Islam. Like the now-disgraced Tariq Ramadan, he was a “bridge-builder,” thoroughly assimilated into Western civilization, who sought nothing more than to educate Westerners about the beautiful beliefs and traditions of his faith—and thereby dispel the ugly suspicions that flow from ignorance.

What repeatedly has gotten in the way of Aslan’s own attempt to maintain this image of serenity and equanimity, however, is his own poisonous hatefulness, which frequently gets the better of him. This phenomenon is not unique to Aslan. It can be observed in the cases of many Muslim public figures in North America and Europe who try to project a calming, moderate profile but who, in certain circumstances—for example, when strongly contradicted—can let the mask slip and sound, suddenly, like nothing so much as a firebrand imam calling for someone’s head.

Continue reading because you all need to know about Reza Aslan and his fellow ‘new American’ travelers.
