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.)

Episode 43 – The Evil Of The Mob

What will you do when a violent mob comes for you, your business or loved ones? Recent mob attacks have taken place in departments stores, gas stations, outdoor restaurants, car dealerships, furniture stores, as well as the usual, police stations and courthouses. Police are ordered to “stand down” while innocent people get attacked, in public or even in their homes.

And no person or town is immune. If the mob has not attacked people in your town, it may be just a matter of time.

It will certainly help to know the ingredients that make a group of people so evil that they commit acts of violence against people they don’t even know.  In this episode I discuss the ingredients that have been found to be present when mobs turn violent. Knowing these elements might help you react to a mob attack.

Here, here and here are links to videos that help explain the psychology involved in mob violence. I don’t like the references to Christianity and Trump, but I believe these videos are still very educational. Here is a video of Steven Crowder discussing the issue of mobs with Dr. Jordan Peterson.

Episode 42 – Surviving Protesters In The Road

Recently there has been a rash of protesters who storm into the street and threaten drivers, vandalize their cars and sometimes even pull drivers out and attack them. Sometimes drivers are even shot at as they try to leave. It seems like what happened to Reginald Denny in 1992 is what more and more of these protesters have in mind: pulling an unsuspecting driver out of their car and trying to beat them to death. The protesters are outraged if anyone gets away, especially if the driver nudges their way through the line of protesters. In this episode I share some thoughts on how to survive such an encounter.

Ethical Preparedness has a YouTube video on the same subject here, and it has some great advice.

Here is the Reginald Denny event in 1992. It is difficult, but you should watch it so that you know what could possibly happen to you if you are driving and the road is suddenly blocked by protesters.

Here are videos of some other unfortunate drivers who were recently shot by protesters in the road when the driver tried to get away: Danny Pruitt in Alamosa, Colorado, and an unnamed driver in his 60’s in Provo, Utah. The gunmen in both cases were charged with attempted murder but were let out after having to pay very low bail.

(By the way, Mr. Pruitt’s family has set up a Go Fund Me at this link here not only to pay his medical expenses but also to support his young daughter. I encourage you to donate.)

Here is the news story of another Provo driver who was shot while trying to get away from a mob of protesters in the street. Protesters in Provo seem very angry at anyone who wants to drive away.

Here are links to some survival items I suggest you consider buying:

Fire extinguisher small enough that it may fit in the glove compartment of your car

First aid kit for your car

Entry-level dash cam

Check out concealed carry insurance at USCCA, CCW Safe, and US Law Shield. There are other concealed carry insurance providers, so shop around.

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

Episode 41 – Anarchy Ensues

The last several weeks have seen total anarchy in the streets of many big cities in the United States, following the death of an African-American, George Floyd, at the hands of his arresting police officers in Milwaukee May 25, 2020. In the weeks that followed, Floyd’s death has become a distant memory, replaced by restless 20-somethings bent on destroying statues and businesses, and threatening and attacking any innocent pedestrians or motorists nearby. God only knows where this will all end.

In this episode I discuss the stupidest idea I have ever seen adapted on a mass scale, that of eliminating police forces, and how it will endanger minority neighborhoods while the wealthy and well-connected remain protected by their own private security. In a way, this is already taking place in Milwaukee, where the city council has voted to eliminate the police for the rest of the city, but, citing death threats, has kept publicly-funded security forces for themselves. What if a regular citizen needs protection? Tough luck. Expect to see more and more of this. I guess some people are just more equal than others.

I also discuss some ideas on how to avoid dangerous mobs, and I suggest setting up some rules on when a motorist should be allowed to drive through an angry mob to protect his or her life. This is becoming more and more of an issue in America today, as angry mobs stream into streets and highways, block traffic, and attack cars and people. (For a history lesson on why this is important, check out this disturbing video of the innocent trucker, Reginald Denny, attacked by a mob blocking a street, during the Rodney King riots in Los Angeles in 1992.)

Here is the link of the armed mob in Lansing, Michigan, threatening motorists and telling them to leave, One can only hope that in a few days the police, who were nearby watching this, will issue felony arrest warrants for the felonious protesters.

Here is a news video of a protester in Alamosa, Colorado, who shot the driver of a truck who slowed down, then tried to drive very slowly though a crowd of protesters standing in the street. The driver is now on life support, and his family set up a Go Fund Me at this link here not only to pay his medical expenses but also to support his daughter. I encourage you to donate.

Episode 40 – Bee-Keeping Intro

In this episode, I discuss bee-keeping, how fun it is and how great the honey tastes when it comes from your own hive.

Bees cross-pollinate and make most plants grow like crazy, and the honey produced helps with seasonal allergies and is a natural antibiotic.

Here is an incredible NOVA episode on the internal workings of a bee hive. There is some amazing camera work here, including placing a microscopic camera on the back of a flying bee!

Here is another great but short video of the internal workings of a bee-hive.

Here is a link to the Natural Apiary USA store at Amazon. It looks to have everything you need to get started in bee-keeping. Don’t get cheap with your suits and gloves! This one, Foxhound Bee Company, is also good.

Here is a link to some great 8-ounce plastic bottles that I recently bought at Amazon to hold honey from our hive. These bottles can hold your honey and become part of your preps, or you can give one of these bottles with your honey in it as a gift. They are not dishwasher safe, so wash them by hand.

The Flowhive bee hive that I discussed can be found at the website www.honeyflow.com. Flowhives make harvesting honey very easy. Check out this video here on how easy it is to harvest honey from a Flowhive!

Another great supplier of bee-keeping equipment is at the website www.dadant.com. Glorybee.com is another good website on bee-keeping.

I also like this website, which is a very complete website that has all the equipment you would ever need to begin bee-keeping. This website also sells books and videos, it has a blog and even has in-person classes (in North Carolina). You can also go there to order live bees and queens. 

I also briefly discussed honey and bee-keeping in my non-fiction book on prepping, Dirt Cheap Valuable Prepping.

Episode 39 – What Has Worked

Since our country has been shut down and everyone told to stay home and go broke, some (but not all) of my family’s preps have worked out. In this episode I go over the preps that have worked.

First, I visit our chicken coup. Our chickens have continued to lay eggs, and we have not needed to buy any from the grocery stores. Have you ever considered setting up a chicken coup? It is easier than you might think, it produces great eggs, and it’s fun!

Next, I go to our survival retreat and walk through one of our two shipping containers that is filled with MREs, freeze-dried food (mostly Mountain House) and various supplies. If you have the means, I strongly suggest you buy a survival retreat, get a shipping container and fill it up with food and supplies. I discussed what supplies you need and how to find property to buy and where and how to get a shipping container in my two books, Dirt Cheap Valuable Prepping, and Dirt Cheap Valuable Survival Retreat.

I am not a doctor and I have not had any medical training, but at the end of this episode I lament  how some treatments that look to be effective in treating Covid-19 have become political issues. No one seemed to care about them until President Trump suggested that anyone infected with this virus ask their doctor about them.

PJ Media has a great roundup of the controversy here. Here is a link to a great interview of one of the doctors who used this regimen to treat his Covid-19 patients. Here is the link to a video of another doctor discussing this regimen. A French doctor discusses his success hereHere and here are great testimonies from people who had the virus but were cured by use of these pills. Here is an interesting video of a man whose Covid-19 symptoms were so bad that he called his friends to say goodbye. One of his friends suggested he ask his doctor about hydroxychloroquine, which he did, and after taking the drug saw his symptoms vanish. 

If you feel that you are infected with Covid-19, talk with a doctor before deciding to begin or end any medication, including those discussed in these videos.

This controversy reminded me of the DDT controversy from days gone by: politics stands in the way of protecting people, and deaths may result. Here is a great book on that subject.  

Here are some useful links:

McMurray Hatchery: this website has all you need to know about chicken coups. It even sells chickens, which can be shipped to you! Also, check out their blog.  

Here is the link to the great egg incubator I discussed. It costs $150, and kids love watching the eggs hatch.

Amazon sells the gamma seal lids here for $15. These things are great and they fit the 5-gallon buckets that can be bought at most hardware stores.

Here is a link to a pouch of Mountain House freeze-fried spaghetti that costs only $10. Just try it out! Open the envelope, remove the oxygen sensor, pour in some hot water, let it sit for 15 minutes, then eat it. You will see what I mean. This food has a shelf-life of 35 years, and it’s tasty!

Episode 38 – A Doctor Discusses Coronavirus

On today’s episode I have a long Skype discussion with doctor and author Walt Browning, about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. How bad is it? What can we do? How long will the current situation last? Is there any encouraging news out there? Browning has some interesting answers, many of which you would never expect.

Here are some links to articles that discussed issues that Walt and I discussed:

Flu Or Cold?

Stanford Professor Says We Are Over-reacting on Coronavirus

Malaria Drug Could Be Used On Coronavirus

A Frustrated Doctor Mike Fact-Checks The Media

The Case Of The Diamond Princess Quarantine

 

Make sure to check out Walt Browning’s latest book, Cost Of Survival (Extinction Survival book 3) when it is released on March 24.

Also, my book, EMP: The End Of The Grid As We Know It, will be free on Kindle for 4 days, beginning March 22.

Episode 37 – Brian Duff And Mind 4 Survival

In this episode I talk with Brian Duff, who has spent time as an Army Ranger, private military contractor, paramedic and international security director. Brian has produced a very-impressive podcast entitled Mind 4 Survival. When you aren’t focused intently on the podcast Survival In Motion, I encourage you to check out Mind 4 Survival. Brian Duff does what I try to do here: explore prepping topics that are out of the ordinary, and not already discussed everywhere else.

Stay tuned to the Mind 4 Survival website. Brian has some exciting plans to expand his content, including daily podcasts, YouTube offerings, and virtual training classes.
