Episode 53 – Nukes, Radiation, And Burns

A much-ignored explosion at an Iranian nuclear site last December may have heralded Iran’s entrance into the world’s nuclear club. Iran has been enriching uranium for years, and it may finally have developed nuclear bombs. I believe this is the case, and Iran is probably making smaller nuclear bombs like what was exploded in early December. Small nuclear bombs can be hiked in backpacks into enemy countries and detonated.

This was all hypothesized in my book EMP NYC, and it looks as if it may be coming true.

A small (2 kiloton) nuclear bomb can be used to do all kinds of damage, like destroying bridges, buildings, and stadiums full of people. But a few miles away, people are not so threatened, as was shown in this test by Army volunteers who, in 1957, stood 3 miles beneath a 2 kiloton nuclear explosion. If they had had any electronics with them, the electronics would have been fried by an EMP, but they were not physically harmed.

Still, despite the media blackout on the explosion in Iran, it is time to stock up on radiation pills, radiation detection equipment, and items that can help in case of skin burns.

Here are some great pills to have on hand in case you are downwind of a nuclear explosion, in danger of getting exposed to radioactive fallout. Right now these pills are cheap and plentiful. Dosage info comes with the pills.

A dosimeter is important to measure your accumulated radiation. Here is the link to a combination dosimeter / geiger counter, but at $130 it is a bit pricey. Here is the link to a less-expensive credit-card size dosimeter that you can keep in your wallet.

Burns also accompany nuclear explosions, and I spent some time in the podcast discussing the usefulness of aloe vera plants and coconut oil.

Here is the link to an indoor aloe vera plant, available on Amazon for only $5. (Some states may not allow you to order these.) Aloe vera plants are great to have around to treat burns. Back in the old days these plants were kept in kitchens, to use for cooking burns.

Coconut oil is great to have around, not only to treat burns and moisturize skin, but also to use as an oil and butter substitute in cooking.  I mentioned some great deals on coconut oil that I found at Walmart and Costco, but here is a pretty good deal I found on coconut oil at Amazon.

Episode 52 – Loose Ends

Issues covered in this episode include the Rittenhouse verdict, the evolution of crypto currencies, the importance of second passports, and the lameness of COVID vaccines and booster shots. Then I cover some new gripes, like the Waukesha parade attack that was perpetrated by a long-time criminal who was repeatedly given breaks by a soft-on-crime prosecutor, and the new (and final?) James Bond movie, a victim of political correctness.

And, speaking of the Waukesha Parade Attack, we need to pray not only for those injured in the attack, but also for the families of those who died. We also need to pray for the mental state of the First Responders and Good Samaritans who reportedly were in the middle of the carnage. PTSD of those who were there is probably rampant.

Police officers with PTSD can reach out for counseling by going to the websites policeptsd.com and copsalive.com/do-you-have-ptsd/.  Author Allen Kates wrote a great book on the subject, entitled Copshock. First Responders who suspect they have PTSD can get help by going to the websites healingourown.org and ptsdunited.com.

Episode 51 – The Man Behind The Curtain

So much of what passes for public discourse of issues today involves the powers-that-be trying to bully or censor the rest of us into accepting their agreed-upon explanation. It all reminds me of the scene at the end of The Wizard of Oz, where the curtain is pulled back, and the wizard bellows, “Don’t look at that man behind the curtain!” Of course he would say that, because Dorothy and her friends eventually looked at the man behind the curtain and discovered that wizard was a fraud.

Same for many issues of the day: the seemingly-intentional disaster of the Afghanistan pull-out, a rogue general who defied President Trump and could have committed treason, the various Covid controversies, the Critical Race Theory being taught to our kids, the January 6 defendants rotting in jail without any rights, the fishy 2020 presidential election, and the discovery that there is an Antifa professor in a Sacramento public school, trying to turn the school kids there into Antifa revolutionaries.

We are told not to think for ourselves, and unfortunately, way too many Americans follow orders and do not deviate from the approved explanations. As preppers, we need to continually “look at that man behind the curtain,” assess the situation, and make up our own minds.

Episode 50 – Expat Prepping

It might sound far-fetched, but what if things get really bad in the US and we aren’t allowed to leave? At that point, you will wish you had a second passport.

History is filled with examples of dangerous situations in different countries, where whole populations of people were threatened or killed, and the only survival option for those people was to leave the country. The Jews in Germany from the 1920’s to the mid-1940’s were only one of many examples. The time to prepare for evacuating to survive is before it is too late.

In this episode of the Survival In Motion podcast, I discuss and provide examples of the various migration options for Americans who want a “Plan B” for them and their families if staying in the US starts looking unsafe, and survival looks more promising in other countries.

And not all of the options are expensive. Many times it is possible to get a dual citizenship in another country by descent (or ancestry), and this is something you can apply for yourself. Other citizenship options include: citizenship by investment, citizenship by naturalization, and citizenship by marriage. Sometimes only a long-term or permanent visa in another country might work or be better for your situation.

Of course, not every option will work for you and your family, but this episode is meant to whet your appetite to do further research and get an appropriate expat option ready for you and your family while you still can.

Episode 49 – Preparing For The Death Of A Loved One

It is a difficult subject, but everyone eventually dies, and we all must know how to prepare for and what we must do when a loved one dies.   

Consulting and possibly hiring a licensed attorney in your jurisdiction is important in not only preparing a will but also in estate planning in general. It would also be a good idea to check out Nolo Press’ books on the subject: Willmaker and Trust Book And Software Kit For 2021, and The Executor’s Guide: Settling A Loved One’s Estate Or Trust. I like Nolo Press. It is a collection of legal guides that are written by attorneys but in plain language that non-attorneys can understand.

There is one good book, Before I Go, that everyone should use to prepare their loved ones to get together assets, insurance polices and the rest as they enter the probate process. 

All this talk of death reminds me that the Kindle version of my book, EMP NYC, which has a very high death toll, is free for a few days on Amazon. Go to the link here.

Episode 48 – Crypto For Preppers

Is it time to consider investing in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum? And what exactly are cryptocurrencies anyway? In this episode I describe to the extreme beginner what I know of these investments, and how they fit into any prepper’s nest-egg investment strategy.

If Bitcoin and cryptocurrency investing is for you, here are links to some exchanges (brokers) I have used:

Coinbase: high fees but great charts and very fast set up. I like the explanations and news stories offered for each cryptocurrency. Soon they will have a debit card that will give you a percentage of Bitcoin for everything you spend on the card.

Crypto.com: decent charts, great selection, interest paid on holdings, they offer a cool debit card with 3% paid back to you in cryptocurrency. Slow set up, but zero commissions for the first 30 days.  Use this link here to set up your account with Crypto.com and we both get $25 extra in crypto.

Celsius: app only, but this is my favorite overall cryptocurrency exchange. Very fast set up, good selection, good charts, high interest paid to you on your holdings and low-interest loans offered against your holdings. $30 goes to you and me both if you set up a new account at Celsius with $200 cash or crypto, using this referral code: 1045785b63

Blockfi: small selection but good interest paid on your holdings and loans made against your holdings. Coming soon: Blockfi’s Visa credit card with a percent of your spending refunded to your account in crypto. $10 goes to you and me both when you use this link here to set up a new account with $100 or more. Blockfi has an affiliate program that will pay you lots of money if you set it up and refer lots of people to Blockfi.

Honorable mention to these cryptocurrency exchanges: Gemini, Nexo and Aave

If you are interested in possibly accepting Bitcoin (or other cryptocurrencies) for your business, you can transfer coins from your customer’s crypto wallet to yours (as I described in this podcast), or you can read this interesting article here

Here are some cool and/or explanatory cryptocurrency items to check out at the Survival In Motion Amazon store:

Ledger Nano S wallet

Trezor One wallet, which is $60, but the latest Trezor wallet is called the model T, and it has a handy LED screen that shows your crypto balances. It is pricey at $180, and it is found here.

The Bitcoin Standard book

A Beginner’s Guide To Bitcoin book

The Only Bitcoin Investing Book You’ll Ever Need

Bitcoin Clarity book (audio version)

Bitcoin: Hard Money You Can’t F*ck With book (audio version)

Bitcoin Money: A Tale Of Bitville Discovering Good Money (a children’s picture book that explains Bitcoin)

A fun cryptocurrency coffee mug (“Gotta Hodl ‘Em All”) 

Physical Bitcoin souvenir (not a real Bitcoin, but looks like one and might be a fun conversation piece)

And while you’re at it, consider shopping at Amazon’s Warehouse Deals — up to 70% off! — from this link here. Shopping at Amazon through the Survival In Motion Amazon store helps defray production costs.

The world’s money may be going through a huge shift towards Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies right now. Like I said, this could be huge. Investing in this stuff has its risks, not only in signing up for an exchange account, but also in investing, and in holding (or “hodling”) the cryptocurrency you pay for. Do your own research, and be careful out there.

Episode 47 – Blacklisting Returns

Did you support President Trump’s re-election? Are you a conservative or a Christian? You may soon be blacklisted because the cancel culture is out there, de-platforming, doxing, physically threatening and ending the careers of people just like you. All in the name of public safety. No one dares call it blacklisting, but that’s what it is.

It goes way beyond closing the Twitter and Facebook accounts of President Trump and those who worked for him. Whole social media websites, like Parler and Gab, which freely allow conservative content, are being shut down. One woman was recently fired for even having Parler and Gab accounts.

Without a hint of shame, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocacio-Cortez (“AOC”) proposed the “Trump Accountability Project,” in which former Trump officials will be “held accountable” for their work with President Trump. Forbes Magazine, and the Lincoln Project have also gotten into the act.

The businesses of private citizens who supported President Trump are in the cross-hairs. One business, Taking Cara Babies, has had its customers harassed and is the subject of a boycott, simply because the founder was one of the 74 million Trump voters in 2020. Mike Lindell’s company, My Pillow, is also undergoing the same blacklisting because of his personal support of President Trump.

PBS’ Principal Counsel was recently recorded saying out loud what many establishment liberals privately think: that children of Trump supporters should be taken away and put into re-education camps. This sounds a lot like the Soviet gulag system under Joseph Stalin, documentaries of which are shown all the time on PBS. Maybe this attorney should watch one.

It gets worse. The Congress is now considering an anti-terrorism bill that Former Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard predicts would someday enable the government to persecute Christians, conservatives and libertarians.

We may be entering an era when free-thinking people will need to keep their heads down, limit their Internet posts and keep their political opinions to themselves. And plan your preps accordingly.

At the end of the podcast, I referred to the work of historian John Glubb, who has shown that most great empires have a lifespan of 250 years. With its 245 year birthday up this summer, the United States may soon be coming to an end. Let’s hope not, but we should all be prepared, just in case.

Episode 46 – Sneak Preview Of My Next Post-Apoc Book

Included in this episode is an audio reading of chapter 2 of my still-in-progress post-apocalyptic book, tentatively entitled EMP 3. This book will probably be released next summer, and will join the earlier books in the “All At Once” series, which are entitled EMP: The End Of The Grid As We Know It and EMP NYC. At the end of today’s podcast I will have an announcement of a freebie.

These two fictional books join my other two non-fiction books on prepping, which are entitled Dirt Cheap Valuable Prepping, and Dirt Cheap Valuable Survival Retreat.    

As you listen to the audio recording of chapter 2 of my next fictional book, keep in mind that, like my other fictional books, I include a lot of conflicts and survival lessons, but in unexpected ways and in unusual settings. This may be the only “when it happens” chapter of a post-apocalyptic book that takes place at an art auction in London.

This book will also tie together the stories of the various family members from the earlier books, and explain how the characters manage to survive and how they try to reunite. I think you will enjoy this book when it comes out.

Episode 45 – Invasion Of The Californians

Be afraid: Californians are leaving the dump that California has become, and they may be coming to your state, bringing their voting habits with them!

Reportedly, it cost four times as much to rent a moving truck in San Francisco for a move to Austin, Texas, than the other way around. Why? Because Californians have voted so liberal for so long that the once-Golden State has become a nightmare. There is now an exodus of Californians to better-run states, with the problem being that ex-Californians vote like they are still back home. There are signs that other states, like Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado and Texas, may be so populated by ex-Californians that someday the California transplants will outvote the locals, making the state where they moved just as bad as California was.

That is what has happened to Portland, Oregon, which used to be a nice place. Now it is filled with angry California transplants, who are doing their best to turn this once-pleasant location into east Los Angeles. Same for other once-pleasant locations. 

If you look around and notice that this might be happening to your area, it might be time to move further away, or to set up a survival retreat far enough away so that you and your family may actually be able to survive if times get really bad.

Setting up a survival retreat is the subject of my book, Dirt Cheap Valuable Survival Retreat. In that book I discuss how inexpensive it is to buy a large piece of vacant land out in the country. The book lists several websites that will enable you to find very inexpensive properties only a few hours drive away, no matter where you live. My book also discusses what to do after you acquire the vacant land, like setting up a front gate, preparing safe dirt roads, digging a water well and preparing an inexpensive place to live. Safe storage of survival equipment is also described.

Other topics discussed in this episode include the harvesting of Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop hard drive, which I think is a smoking gun that will doom presidential candidate Joe Biden and his family for years to come, regardless of this year’s election results. This scandal also has the feel of the tip if the iceberg, so that it may also ensnare other higher-ups from the Obama administration.

Another topic discussed in this episode is the Covid research I did for my sister, who might have contracted this virus. The hydroxychloroquine controversy has not gone away, and this medication still appears to be just as safe and beneficial (together with other medications) as it was discovered to be a few months ago. Some doctors have set up a website here that publishes some facts about this drug. One of the doctors in this group, Dr. Simone Gold, says that “hydroxychloroquine is a magic bullet if you take it early.”

I also found an article that discusses how well the continent of Africa is doing in its fight with Covid, because hydroxychloroquine, which was already used to survive malaria, is plentiful there and can also be used to survive Covid. 

This episode also incudes discussion of Michelle Obama’s annoying video, in which she claimed that BLM protests are entirely peaceful, and that it is racist to suggest otherwise. Maybe our eyes and ears are racist when we see videos like this and this, or this one, when BLM protesters are attacking nearby citizens or police officers, and rioting. A few weeks ago, after someone tried to assassinate two sheriff’s deputies in Compton, California, BLM protesters showed up and created a disturbance at the hospital where the deputies were taken. The BLM protesters yelled out “I hope they die,” and “you’re next” at the police officers guarding the hospital. 

It could be that Michelle Obama might not know about all this BLM violence if it is difficult to access the news from her 7000-square-foot mansion in Martha’s Vineyard.

Don’t forget your homework assignment:

Before voting in this year’s election, you need to watch one or both of the following movies:

High Noon

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

Episode 44 – Advice To The Mostly Peaceful Protesters And Murderers

We all know that the Antifa / BLM protesters and murderers out there are mostly peaceful. That’s a given. The only question is how these rioters can keep their protesting and murdering — and their burning, looting, vandalizing, traffic-blocking, and all their other violent crimes mostly peaceful as well.

In this sarcasm-filled episode, I give advice to these mostly peaceful protesters and murderers on several situations they continually face, like where to commit their mostly peaceful crimes, whether to grant an Internet interview while on the lam, and what to do if confronted by police officers who want to arrest them.

We truly live in an upside-down world, where “silence is violence,” and a District Attorney is the rioters’ best friend. “No justice, no peace” means that some suspected injustice somewhere far away means that the mob might come to victimize you. The suburbs might be next.

Craziness reigns in Minneapolis, where the city council defunds the police, then a few weeks later, wonders why crime has gotten so bad. Go figure. 

Here is a link to some great pepper spray, available on Amazon. (Only buy this if it is legal in your area.)

Here is a link to a great self-defense item (actually it is called a “multi-tool hatchet”) sold on Amazon.

There is always the good old “neck-knife,” sold on Amazon here.
