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 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!

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?
