Hillary's 'mystery man' appears after coughing fit - Wed 07 Sep 2016, 5:00 pm

Hillary's 'mystery man' appears after coughing fit

'Do you think the media will ever ask the campaign about this guy?'

After Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton suffered the worst coughing fit of her campaign Monday, a mysterious man seen by her side for many months on the campaign trail suddenly appeared on her plane.
As WND reported, Clinton suffered two coughing fits on Labor Day – one during a speech in Cleveland, Ohio, and a second one during a press conference on her plane.
In the past, the same man has been spotted helping Clinton up stairs and holding what appears to be a Diazepam pen. Some observers have referred to the man as Hillary’s “mysterious handler.”
The following image of the man on the plane was posted by the Gateway Pundit blog:
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Hillary-handler
Jim Hoft of the Gateway Pundit noted that the man is sometimes dressed like a Secret Service agent, “but his actions prove otherwise.”
For example, during one campaign event at Union Hall, New York, some protesters got rowdy.
“Hillary Clinton suddenly froze,” he wrote. “She looked dazed and lost. Seeing this, a group of men rushed to assist the candidate on the stage. One man, however, gently pats the candidate’s back and says, ‘Keep talking.'”
But, according to the post, “An expert on Secret Service tactics told [the Gateway Pundit] Secret Service agents would not touch a candidate in the manner that this individual did and especially Hillary Clinton. It has been widely reported on Hillary’s disdain for the agents who work to protect her. The man who touches Hillary may be a member of Hillary’s close staff – but he is NOT a Secret Service agent.”

Hoft asked, “Do you think the media will ever ask the campaign about this guy?”
WND did ask the Hillary Clinton campaign about the identity and role of the man in the photos but hadn’t received a response at the time of this report.
At an earlier campaign appearance, the same man was reportedly seen carrying a long object that resembled a Diazepam pen.

Also Monday, Clinton was seen spitting a yellow, unidentified object, which may have been a lozenge, into her glass.
Apparently frustrated that it can’t shut down news coverage of the recurring coughing fits, the Clinton campaign lashed out at an NBC reporter for daring to broach the subject of Clinton’s coughing fits in his news report Monday.
And in an appearance on ABC News that aired Tuesday evening, Clinton running mate Tim Kaine insisted concerns about Clinton’s health are “idiotic.”
NBC News’ Andrew Rafferty wrote the following five-paragraph report about Clinton’s severe coughing fit in Cleveland, Ohio, on Monday:
Hillary Clinton struggled to fight back a coughing fit while campaigning in Cleveland, Ohio, on Monday.
“I’ve been talking so much,” Clinton said with a hoarse voice. “Every time I think about Trump, I get allergic.”
The former secretary of state has suffered from coughing fits at times throughout the Democratic presidential primary.
However the frog in Clinton’s throat on Monday was one of the most aggressive she’s had during her 2016 run and left her almost unable to finish her remarks.
After the event, campaign aides attributed it to allergies.

Though Rafferty’s report was short and straightforward, the reporter received a harsh rebuke from Clinton’s traveling press secretary, Nick Merrill.
Merrill blasted Rafferty on Twitter Monday, telling the NBC reporter to “Get a life.”

President Obama’s former speechwriter, Jon Favreau, asked, “Is there anyone at NBC, or anywhere else, who’s willing to defend this story?”
In his Washington Post piece titled, “Can we just stop talking about Hillary Clinton’s health now?” Chris Cillizza said the questions about Hillary’s heath “are absurd”: “This is a totally ridiculous issue – for lots of reasons – and one that if Trump or his Republican surrogates continue to focus on is a surefire loser in the fall.”
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Cillizza
Rafferty isn’t the first media personality to face attacks for merely discussing the issue of Clinton’s health.
CNN “network honchos” reportedly “acted like the mafia” when they confronted the famous Dr. Drew Pinsky for raising the topic on a radio show, according to the New York Post’s Page Six.
As WND reported, Dr. Drew’s television show on the HLN cable network, “Dr. Drew on Call,” was canceled eight days after he raised questions about Clinton’s health in an interview on KABC-AM in Los Angeles. HLN is the sister channel of CNN.
Dr. Drew has refused to blame Clinton and her supporters for the cancellation of his popular show.
But a source told Page Six CNN network officials relentlessly pursued Dr. Drew for a retraction.
“CNN is so supportive of Clinton, network honchos acted like the mafia when confronting Drew,” said the source, who is close to Dr. Drew. “First, they demanded he retract his comments, but he wouldn’t.”
According to the report, “What followed was a series of nasty phone calls and emails.”
The source called the CNN officials’ behavior “downright scary and creepy.”
GOP nominee Donald Trump, however, has insisted the story surrounding Clinton’s health has been ignored by the mainstream media even though concerns have gone viral on social media and alternative news sites.
“Mainstream media never covered Hillary’s massive ‘hacking’ or coughing attack, yet it is #1 trending. What’s up?” Trump tweeted Tuesday.

Many tweeters have been using the Twitter hashtag, #HackingHillary, to post comments about Clinton’s health.
Even Hollywood actor and producer James Woods chimed in, expressing his concerns and launching the Twitter hashtag #HerHackingHighness.
“I feel badly she’s obviously very sick, but she can’t responsibly be president with serious health problems,” Woods tweeted Monday.
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 James-Woods-TW
Also on Tuesday, Trump told ABC News he will release his full medical records. In the ABC appearance Tuesday evening, Clinton defended her own health record and questioned that of Trump’s. She claimed a short 2015 letter she provided from her personal internist, Dr. Lisa Bardack, is sufficient to show she’s physically healthy enough to be president.
“What we have released is commensurate with what others who have been nominated for president have released. And we followed closely what the format was; we put out the information,” she said.
Clinton attacked Trump’s own health letter as “devoid of information.” She said the doctor who wrote it “basically [said] he did it in five minutes, because the ‘limousine was waiting.'”
In a Monday column published on WND, Dr. Jane M. Orient, M.D., questioned the short letter concerning Clinton’s health.
“So far, I have not seen a doctor putting his reputation on the line by writing, ‘I have read all the available medical reports and looked at the photographs and videos, and my diagnosis is that Mrs. Clinton is in fine health.,'” Dr. Orient wrote. “No doctor has said, ‘If I were at an event and saw someone displaying the signs captured on video, I would ignore it. I would not bring the person a chair, or ask, ‘Are you OK?’ or make sure she had a ride home.'”
Dr. Orient reviewed Bardack’s letter as if it concerned a hypothetical case of a patient named Mary Jones, who needs medical clearance to drive a school bus.
“In the actual record, as opposed to a summary letter, I’d expect to find a weight. Photographs show evidence of substantial rapid weight gain. If true, it requires an explanation,” Dr. Orient wrote. “Since Mrs. Jones has had dizziness and falls, did the doctor check her blood pressure and pulse lying down and then standing up?”
Noting that Clinton is taking the blood thinner Coumadin for recurring clotting problems, Dr. Orient asked: “How often is the INR (a measure of clotting function) checked? Has Mrs. Jones been instructed about Coumadin interactions with some 800 drugs as well as fruits and vegetables (kale, avocado, grapefruit, etc.), alcohol and herbs (oregano, thyme, basil, etc.)? The INR can change unexpectedly, but even if stable and within the desired range, the patient is at risk of clotting or hemorrhage.”
Dr. Orient continued:
“About that transverse sinus clot: How does Dr. Bardack know it completely dissolved? It usually doesn’t. Did Mrs. Jones have a venogram or MRV? Veins are often damaged by a thrombus – a patient might have a swollen ankle for life. A swollen brain can be fatal. With impaired venous drainage from the brain, a patient gets intracranial hypertension. Symptoms include headache, double vision, visual impairment, nausea and vomiting and dizziness. The record should contain a good eye exam, looking for swelling of the optic nerve head. But many patients (maybe 90 percent) with intracranial hypertension don’t show that. The definitive test is a lumbar puncture (spinal tap) to measure opening pressure. But no one is going to do an LP in somebody who’s on Coumadin.
“And the severe concussion? How is Dr. Bardack sure there is no persistent brain damage? Has Mrs. Jones had formal cognitive testing, as done in athletes? Has anything changed on a more recent examination? Has she had an MRI with DTI, which shows connecting pathways in the brain? Have reports of confusion or difficulty arousing her from a nap been investigated?
“Then some videos have led some to suspect seizures, a known complication of traumatic brain injury. Was an EEG done … ?
“And did Dr. Bardack’s “normal physical examination” include a detailed neurologic exam? Did the doctor check eye movements, gait, Romberg sign (ability to stand with feet together and eyes closed), muscle strength, motor coordination, vibratory sensation, normal and potential abnormal reflexes, memory, etc.? Did she obtain a neurology or neurosurgery consult?”

Orient concluded, “If Dr. Bardack did not check for all these things, I’d judge her evaluation of Mrs. Jones for driving a school bus to be inadequate. I challenge any doctor to say that any one of these items is unimportant in a person with Mrs. Clinton’s history and recently reported signs who aspires to a position as a bus driver – or U.S. president.”

(NaturalNews) With every ignorant news organization across America now pushing Americans to slather their skin with DEET chemicals as a defense against Zika mosquitoes, there's something every American needs to know: DEET is one chemical component of a binary chemical weapon system currently being carpet bombed onto U.S. civilian populations.

That's an aggressive assertion, I fully realize. So in this article, I'm going to lay out the science for you that proves all this, citing published scientific studies, government research papers, historical accounts of military actions and molecular citations from the world's most authoritative sources on chemistry. As far as my own science background goes, I am the lab science director of CWC Labs, an internationally accredited, ISO-17025 accredited forensic food analysis laboratory. I personally run mass spec (LC/MS-TOF) systems with a special focus on pesticides, herbicides and chemical toxicology. In fact, I have just completed a science paper on the world's first LC/MS-TOF accurate quantitation and anti-counterfeit analysis method for cannabidiols in hemp extracts, and that paper is going to be published later this year at a science expo event. I'm also the author of the Amazon.com #1 bestselling science book Food Forensics.

In other words, let there be no doubt whatsoever that I know what I'm talking about when it comes to the science I'm about to describe here. Nearly everyone who attacks this story, you will find, has no qualifications to even understand the science.

DEET damages brain cells
Getting back to DEET and Zika, the DEET chemical is actually N,N-Diethyl-3-methylbenzamide. From a molecular science point of view, it looks like this (courtesy ChemSpider.com):

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 DEET-chemical-600

Note the molecular formula of C12H17NO. This means it has a total of 12 carbon atoms, 17 hydrogen atoms, one nitrogen and one oxygen. (We often use molecular formulas as shorthand in chemistry. This tells you the elemental composition and ratios, but not the bonding configuration or polarity.)

All by itself, the DEET chemical is known to cause damage to nerve cells. Let's explore that, because DEET is just one part of a binary chemical weapon system that is right now being deployed against the American people... a weapon system engineered to cause mass fear and confusion while even achieving a "behavior modifying" effect as you'll soon see.

DEET damages brain cells by interfering with enzymatic reactions
Ever wonder how DEET kills insects? It's an acetycholinesterase inhibitor, meaning it blocks the molecular action of acetycholinesterase.

Via this Natural News article:

French scientists Vincent Corbel from the [i]Institut de Recherche pour le Developement in Montpellier and Bruno Lapied from the University of Angers headed a team of researchers who studied the mode of action and toxicity of DEET, also known by the chemical name N,N-Diethyl-3-methylbenzamide. "We've found that DEET is not simply a behavior-modifying chemical but also inhibits the activity of a key central nervous system enzyme, acetycholinesterase, in both insects and mammals," Corbel said in a statement to the media.[/i]

What exactly is acetycholinesterase? "Acetylcholinesterase (AChE, acetycholine acetylhydrolase...) is found in many types of conducting tissue: nerve and muscle, central and peripheral tissues, motor and sensory fibers, and cholinergic and noncholinergic fibers," says this 2013 science paper in Current Neuropharmocology: "Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitors: Pharmacology and Toxicology."

Blocking AChE causes "disrupted neurotransmission" and other damaging effects to brain cells: "The enzyme inactivation, induced by various inhibitors, leads to acetylcholine accumulation, hyperstimulation of nicotinic and muscarinic receptors, and disrupted neurotransmission."

According to that science paper, AChE inhibitors work similarly to carbamate and organophosphate pesticides -- two classes of chemicals routinely sprayed all over the national food supply -- meaning that people who slather their skin with DEET are poisoning themselves with brain-disrupting pesticide chemicals. Says the paper, "In medicine and agriculture, the word 'organophosphates' refers to a group of insecticides and nerve agents that inhibit AChE."

These organophosphates "exert their main toxicological effects through non-reversible phosphorylation of esterases in the central nervous system," report the scientists. "The acute toxic effects are related to irreversible inactivation of AChE."

In other words, some classes of AChE inhibitors can cause irreversible damage to the central nervous system.

DEET inhibits nervous system function... that's how it kills
DEET is an AChE inhibitor. As stated in this science paper entitled "Evidence for inhibition of cholinesterases in insect and mammalian nervous systems by the insect repellent deet":

Despite the widespread and increased interest in the use of deet in public health programmes, controversies remain concerning both the identification of its target sites at the olfactory system and its mechanism of toxicity in insects, mammals and humans...

...[W]e show that deet is not simply a behaviour-modifying chemical but that it also inhibits cholinesterase activity, in both insect and mammalian neuronal preparations. Deet is commonly used in combination with insecticides and we show that deet has the capacity to strengthen the toxicity of carbamates, a class of insecticides known to block acetylcholinesterase.

These findings question the safety of deet, particularly in combination with other chemicals...


Now you are beginning to grasp the binary weapon of DEET + Carbamates (or OPs). Carbamates are common pesticides sprayed on food crops. They're also sprayed into the air by your local government as part of their ill-formed mosquito control programs they claim will stop Zika.

DEET is one part of a binary chemical weapon (the other part is carbamate insecticides)
I hope you're paying close attention to what I'm explaining here, because what the study mentioned above reveals is that DEET is part of a binary chemical weapon system that goes "ballistic" against your nerve cells when combined with certain classes of insecticides (such as carbamates and OPs).

What are carbamate insecticides? They are a class of pesticide chemicals that are right now being sprayed on food crops all across America. Even worse, they're often used in aerial spraying campaigns in combination with DEET. In effect, this is a chemical binary weapon now being deployed against the American people.

"Deet is commonly used in combination with insecticides and we show that deet has the capacity to strengthen the toxicity of carbamates, a class of insecticides known to block acetylcholinesterase," says the BioMedCentral science paper linked above.

Adding to the concern, this warning from MDguidelines.com explains, "Over 80% of the pesticide poisonings in the US are caused by organophosphate and carbamate pesticides. These compounds inhibit acetylcholinesterase, an enzyme critical to the control of nerve impulse transmission from one cell to another. When the enzyme is inhibited, there is overstimulation and then paralysis of the secondary cell."

According to this PDF document from the USGS, "The toxicity of OP and carbamate pesticides is due to the disruption of the nervous system of an invertebrate or a vertebrate through the inhibition of cholinesterase (ChE) enzymes. These enzymes are involved in transmitting normal nerve impulses throughout the nervous system. An acute pesticide dose reduces the activity of ChEs, and nerve impulses cannot be transmitted normally. This can paralyze the nervous system, and it may lead to death, usually from respiratory failure."

That same report goes on to explain how "More than 100 avian species have been poisoned by these pesticides" and that "Raptors and other bird species become victims of secondary poisoning when they scavenge dead animals poisoned by pesticides or when they feed on live animals or invertebrates that are unable to escape predation because of pesticide intoxication."

In other words, the carbamates make animals weak and confused, turning them into easy prey. Hmmm... can you think of any other targeted population an evil government might want to make weak and confused so that they can be easily controlled or exploited? Remember, to the government, We the People are nothing more than zoo animals living on tax farms, and they are more than happy to use chemical sprays to keep us all dumbed down and ignorant, just as former slave plantation owners refused to allow their slaves to learn to read.

"Research by Duke University Medical Center pharmacologist Mohamed Abou-Donia, who has spent 30 years studying the effects of pesticides, found that prolonged exposure to DEET can impair functioning in parts of the brain and could result in problems with muscle coordination, muscle weakness, walking or even memory and cognition," reports Natural News.

The binary weapon formula is DEET + Carbamates
In summary, here's how the binary chemical weapon works:

DEET + Carbamates = Extreme toxicity, weakness, confusion and loss of cognitive function.

The DEET is now being purchased and deployed by obedient sheeple who stupidly think Zika viruses are going to eat their brains. The Carbamates and OPs are sprayed onto populations via aerial carpet bombing runs and agricultural chemical spraying. If you aren't eating a 100% organic diet, you are eating carbamates at every meal. These then combine with the DEET chemicals to cause mass mental confusion, weakness, memory loss, fear and neurotransmitter disruption.

Combine this with endless propaganda from a complicit media run by globalists and this is how you end up with people voting for their own enslavement at the hands of tyrants.

The following map, sourced from the USGS, shows the number of avian deaths recorded across U.S. states from OP and carbamate poisoning (from 1986 - 1995). Note how widespread the chemical spraying is? "Organophosphorus and carbamate compounds are used throughout the world as insecticides, herbicides, nematocides, acaricides, fungicides, rodenticides, avicides, and bird repellants," says the report.

Agitation, confusion and death
How exactly do AChE inhibitors cause so much damage to the nervous system? According to the same paper cited above: (bold added)

The inhibition of the enzyme leads to accumulation of ACh in the synaptic cleft resulting in over-stimulation of nicotinic and muscarinic ACh receptors and impeded neurotransmission. The typical symptoms of acute poisoning are agitation, muscle weakness, muscle fasciculations, miosis, hypersalivation, sweating. Severe poisonings may cause respiratory failure, unconsciousness, confusion, convulsions and/or death.

It almost sounds like a nerve gas chemical weapon, doesn't it? Not coincidentally, that notion is exactly right. These OP and carbamate pesticides ARE chemical weapons and if they were deployed as weapons, they would be illegal under United Nations treaties that prohibit weapons of mass destruction from being deployed against human populations.

Chemically very similar to nerve agents such as VX Nerve Gas
"Many of the toxic nerve agents used by the military are similar organophosphate compounds," reports MD Guidelines.

Here it gets even more stunning: According to this published science paper, organophosphorus compounds (OPs) make up most of the deadly nerve agents that have been deployed as chemical weapons by the world's governments. From the paper:

Nerve agents of OP group include tabun, sarin, soman, cyclosarin and VX. Sarin, soman and cyclosarin are phosphonofluoridates, and VX is a phosphonothioate (Fig. 1313). Soman has four, while sarin and VX have two isoforms, which significantly differ in toxicity and irreversible AChE inactivation rate. Based on the acute toxicity, VX is the most toxic compound among all the nerve agents [67]. The developing and production of these extremely toxic nerve agents started in the 1930s, and later used in wars and by terrorists on several occasions. As chemical weapons, they are classified as weapons of mass destruction by the United Nations, and their production and stockpiling was outlawed by the Chemical Weapons Convention.

And yet, even though these nerve agents are classified as chemical weapons, variations of nearly identical molecules are widely deployed as pesticides, often being sprayed in combination with DEET and other chemicals.

Note carefully that "soman and cyclosarin are phosphonofluoridates," meaning they combine fluorine with organophosphates to create a hyper-toxic chemical that's deadly to brain cells. Here's what the cyclosarin nerve gas molecule looks like (courtesy of ChemSpider.com)

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Cyclosarin-molecule-600
Molecular formula: C7H14FO2P

Note the astonishing molecular similarity of this nerve gas agent to diisopropyl fluorophosphate, a commonly used pesticide: (SOURCE: ChemSpider).

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Diisopropyl-fluorophosphate-600
Molecular formula: C6H14FO3P

See how they have a common structure centered around the phosphate element (P) with a double bonded oxygen (O)? Notice how they both have an attach fluorine atom, which creates an extremely aggressive molecule that can bond with (and therefore ravage) other biological molecules including brain cells? (Fluorine is also found in many psychoactive drugs such as SSRIs.)

"Commonly used OP insecticides have included ethyl parathion, malathion, methyl parathion, chlorpyrifos, diazinon, dichlorvos, phosmet, fenitrothion, tetrachlorvinphos, azinphos methyl, pirimiphos-methyl, dimethoate, phosalone," says the Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitors paper cited elsewhere in this article.

Many of these insecticides, you may recall, are routinely carpet bombed onto America's cities under the justification of eliminating various flies, mosquitoes or agricultural pests. Malathion, for example, is routinely sprayed on civilian populations.

Weaponized Zika was used by the U.S. military to attack communists
As you take in all this information -- none of which you'll ever see on CNN, Fox News, the NY Times or the Washington Post because all of those organizations are run by quack pseudo-journalists and scientifically illiterate morons -- keep in mind that Zika virus was weaponized and deployed against communist targets by the U.S. military.

Via The Free Thought Project:

At Fort Detrick, the military’s biological weapons base in Maryland, in great secret, Army scientists were considering how fleas, grasshoppers, and mosquitoes might be deployed against the Communist threat. These insects were harder to protect against than gas -- masks wouldn’t help. The threat they posed would last, as long as a population of insects remained alive. Plus, it would be very difficult to pin an insect-borne attack on the U.S.

Among these possible insect soldiers, A. aegypti was “the golden child,” writes Jeffrey A. Lockwood, in Six-Legged Soldiers, because the disease it carried, yellow fever was so terrible. The Army Chemical Corps, in a 1959 report, notes that yellow fever is “highly dangerous” and that “since 1900, one-third of patients have died.” There were parts of the Soviet Union that had never been exposed to the disease, which made them vulnerable, but which had the right climate to support mosquitoes. The Chemical Corps started to experiment with how a brigade of A. aegypti might be deployed and what sort of damage they might do.

They would load hundreds of thousands of mosquitoes into planes and, later, helicopters, then drop them over the field and see how far they could spread.

The mosquitoes apparently performed well enough: By 1960, the Chemical Corps was producing 500,000 A. aegypti every month, rearing them on sugar water and blood and letting them lay their eggs on paper towels. Scientists had found they could infect a new generation of mosquitoes with yellow fever by mixing the virus in the solution in which the mosquito eggs grew. Hundreds of thousands of mosquitoes were not enough to start a real epidemic, though. The corps proposed constructing a facility in Arkansas that could produce 100 million A. aegypti mosquitoes each week.


Are you grasping all this yet?

FOLLOW THE MONEY: Who benefits from a Zika outbreak and the mass chemical spraying of Americans
So the U.S. government breeds infected mosquitoes and drops them on population centers as a weapon. This isn't a conspiracy theory, it's U.S. history.

Now consider the question of who benefits from a Zika outbreak. Thanks to Zika, Obama has already funneled billions of dollars into vaccine companies. He also managed to redirect hundreds of millions of dollars in Zika research money to a United Nations climate change slush fund. (Hint: Obama plans to run the United Nations after ending his U.S. presidency.)

At the same time, DEET sales are exploding across America while local governments are carpet bombing cities like Miami with brain-damaging insecticide chemicals. The DEET, as we've documented here, contains AChE inhibitors that block brain function and cause memory loss, irritation and confusion among the voting population. (Nobody can remember all the campaign promises Obama made and then failed to deliver, see?)

It's all just in time for the riots and elections, isn't it? The more people coat their skin with DEET and then get exposed to carbamates or OPs which are being sprayed on U.S. cities, the more confused Americans become, making them even more susceptible to the outrageous lies of the mainstream media that's trying to get a racketeering criminal traitor elected to the White House.

In effect, the criminal government is already in the process of deploying binary chemical weapons against the voting population as a form of chemical cognitive engineering. The goal is to cause widespread fear, confusion, memory loss and cognitive weakness. This is all being done for the simple, obvious reason that if all the human minds across America were allowed to wake up and notice what's really happening, the criminal class of government liars and crooks would find themselves swinging by their necks from trees. Thus, keeping the masses dumbed down and chemically brain damaged is a necessary strategy for the corrupt political class to remain in power.

This is the biggest political science story in American history, yet there isn't a single news organization reporting it. Ever wonder why?

DEET, fluoride, SSRIs, lead in the water and mercury vaccines... what do they all have in common?
Now I ask you: What do all these things have in common? Consider the common biochemical actions of DEET, fluoride, SSRI drugs, lead in the water and mercury in the flu shots (yes, vaccines still contain huge concentrations of mercury... over 50,000 ppb in my lab tests, which is over 25,000 times the maximum EPA limit of mercury in drinking water).

The answer is: THEY ALL DAMAGE BRAINS and inhibit cognitive function.

What you are observing here, if you still have the cognitive capacity to understand it, is a deliberate, coordinated, multi-vector chemical assault on your ability to think clearly.

This is a whole new kind of warfare against the commoners (the sheeple). The deliberate dumbing down you're being subjected to isn't just an info-propaganda campaign launched by CNN and the NY Times. There is a very real, very deliberate chemical warfare component to all this.

Yes, the U.S. government is currently waging covert chemical warfare on the American people. They are doing it using binary chemical weapons, in violation of international treaties against the use of weapons of mass destruction. And they are doing it to deliberately cause mass fear, confusion, memory loss and cognitive impairment.

Every media story you see that urges you to slather on the DEET is unknowingly participating in this binary weapons deployment. Don't blame your local news person for this; they are too stupid, incompetent and scientifically illiterate to know anything that's really happening in the world around them (that's why they have to read teleprompter scripts written by someone else... they can't even think for themselves anymore).

Now you know the real story on Zika and DEET and why they're being pushed so aggressively by the same subversive media that's desperately trying to overthrow democracy and install a totalitarian criminal in the White House. This is all connected. The timing of the Zika release is not a coincidence.

THIS IS ALL OUT WAR AGAINST AMERICA. And it's not just a propaganda war. It's a chemical war, and you have already been targeted for intoxication to make sure you never achieve the presence of mind to vote for anti-establishment candidates like Donald Trump who threaten to overthrow the corrupt, criminal government.

The #1 Reason Why America Is Submitting to the New World Order

Why are so many Americans simply giving in to the suspension of our Constitution and the widespread criminality among lur leaders (ie Clinton)?
There is a set of psychological reasons why our people, even those that are seemingly more awake than most, would accept this latest tyranny from their government. We know about cognitive dissonance which prevents people from seeing the totality of a threat and thus inhibiting their personal ability to make the paradigm shift needed to accurately perceive the threat. We also know about bystander apathy which stands as an obstacle to getting involved because in this large country, “someone else will do it”. And there is a third psychological reason which prevents us from getting involved because we have been conditioned that our actions cannot make any difference which is reflective of a condition called, learned helplessness.

The Brainwashing of America

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Sheep
“Yes we can sacrifice liberty for security. And there is no such thing as a conspiracy.”
Americans have been brainwashed into believing that their government will care for them in their time of need. Has this time in American history been foretold? I believe that it has and that H. G. Wells was the prophetic messenger of the New World Order.
Wells actually understood a concept that modern day psychologists refer to as learned helplessness and he wrote about it in his book, The Time Machine, which was originally published in 1895 and the book was later made into a 1960 hit movie by the same name. The book prophetically told of a time in the distant future where the “normal” inhabitants of the earth would be docile, passive and suffer from the condition that modern day psychologists refer to as “learned helplessness.” What is learned helplessness?

Learned Helplessness

Why won’t America stand up for herself? Why is the country, once a country which possessed courage and conviction, now sitting idly while allowing itself to be taken to the slaughter without so much as a whimper?
The answer to the above question lies in the psychological concept known as “Learned Helplessness” as discovered by Martin Seligman in the 1960’s.
“Learned helplessness” occurs when an animal, or a person, is repeatedly subjected to an aversive stimulus that it cannot escape from. Eventually, the animal will stop trying to avoid the stimulus and behave as if it is utterly helpless to change the situation. Even when opportunities to escape are presented, this learned helplessness will prevent any action”.
 
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Seligman-2
 
Phase One
In the first phase of the learned helplessness experiment, Seligman placed a dog on an electrical grid, shocked the dog and noted that the dog would demonstrate the ability to escape the aversive stimulus.
Phase Two
In the second phase, the dog was barricaded on the grid and was unable to escape the painful shocks. Eventually the dog laid down and passively accepted the shock.
Phase Three
Seligman then removed the barricades and the dog could have easily escaped the shocks. However, the dog, conditioned by the prior set of events, simply laid down and accepted the shocks, without mounting any resistance whatsoever. This, in large part, is where America is at today.

Conclusion

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Sheep-attacking
Unitl America discovers that their actions can and do make a difference, the American sheep will continue to accept their enslavement. Is there anything that can turn this around? Yes, the incessant message of freedom and the exposure of the abject criminality of this establishment as well as the sociopathy of Clinton. All of us need to become missionaries of the truth.

This Investing Legend Just Doubled His Bet Against U.S. Stocks - Sat 20 Aug 2016, 3:59 pm


This Investing Legend Just Doubled His Bet Against U.S. Stocks





George Soros just doubled his bet against U.S. stocks.

You’ve probably heard of Soros. After Warren Buffett, he’s likely the world’s most well-known investor.

Soros is a household name because of his incredible track record. From 1969 to 2011, he generated average annual returns of 20%. He nearly beat the S&P 500 2-to-1 over that stretch.

Soros also famously “broke the Bank of England.” In 1992, he made a giant bet that the pound sterling, Britain’s currency, would crash. When it did, Soros pocketed $1 billion.

For the last few years, Soros has been on a bit of a hiatus. But two months ago, he came “out of retirement” to run Soros Fund Management, which manages about $29 billion.

That's because Soros thinks there's big money to be made right now…

But Soros isn’t betting stocks will go higher—he’s betting they’ll crash.

In the first quarter, Soros cut his stake in U.S. stocks by 37% and placed a HUGE bet on gold.

Today, we’ll tell you about Soros’ latest move. And we’ll tell you about another investing legend who’s also betting big against stocks. Plus, we’ll show you the #1 way to protect your wealth from a stock crash.

• Soros bought 1.9 million “puts” on the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) last quarter…

The SPY tracks the performance of the S&P 500. And a put is a way for an investor to make money if a stock falls.

As of March 31, the Soros Fund owned 2.1 million puts on the SPY. At the end of June, it owned 4 million. In other words, Soros doubled down on his bet against U.S. stocks.

• Soros thinks we’re heading for a repeat of the 2008–2009 financial crisis…

In January, he warned, “When I look at the financial markets there is a serious challenge which reminds me of the crisis we had in 2008.” He added, “The world is running into something that it doesn’t know how to handle.”

According to Soros, this crisis has been "unfolding in slow motion.” But since the “Brexit,” the world is now racing toward it.

As you probably know, Great Britain voted to leave the European Union in June. The unprecedented decision caught investors by surprise. It erased more than $3 trillion from the global stock market in two days.

In its aftermath, we warned that the Brexit was a “taste of what’s to come.” Soros agrees. He recently said the Brexit “unleashed a crisis in the financial markets comparable in severity only to that of 2007/2008.”

• Paul Tudor Jones is betting against U.S. stocks too…

Jones might not be a household name like Soros. But he’s a legend on Wall Street.

He’s a “big-picture” trader who’s nailed several market tops and bottoms. He’s best known for calling the “Black Monday” stock crash of October 1987. As you may know, the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged almost 23% on this day. It was the darkest day in the history of the U.S. stock market.

Today, Jones runs the Tudor Investment Corporation, which manages $32 billion.

Like Soros, Jones is betting U.S. stocks will fall. Last quarter, his fund bought 5.95 million puts on the SPY, more than doubling its bearish bets against the S&P 500. The fund now owns 8.34 million puts on the SPY, making it his biggest position.

• There are plenty of reasons to be nervous about the stock market right now…

The global economy is weak. The U.S., Europe, Japan, and China are all growing at their slowest rates in decades.

Stocks are expensive. The popular CAPE valuation ratio, which gives a long-term view of the stock market, is 62% above its historic average. The S&P 500 has only been more expensive three times in history: before the Great Depression, during the dot-com bubble, and leading up to the 2008–2009 crisis.

Corporate America is also struggling to make money. Corporate profits are on track to decline for the fifth straight quarter. That hasn’t happened since the 2008–2009 crisis.

• The stock market has another big problem…

Share buybacks just hit a four-year low. MarketWatch reported on Tuesday:

Through Monday, announced share repurchases during the second-quarter earnings season beginning five weeks ago has averaged just 3.3 announcements for about $1.8 billion in sum each day, the lowest level since the summer of 2012.


A buyback is when a company buys its own stock from shareholders. This can lift a company's stock price.

According to investment bank Goldman Sachs (GS), buybacks have been the biggest driver of U.S. stock performance since the financial crisis.

With the global economy slowing and profits on the decline, buybacks have been about the only thing keeping stocks afloat. If this trend continues, the stock market could lose its biggest buyer. And that could be the last straw for this incredibly fragile stock market.

• If you’re nervous about the stock market, we encourage you to take action today…

Step #1 is to own physical gold.

As we like to remind readers, gold is real money. It’s preserved wealth for centuries because it’s unlike any other asset. It’s durable, easy to transport, and easily divisible.

Gold’s also a safe haven asset that investors buy when they’re worried about stocks or the economy.

This year, gold is up 28%. According to the World Gold Council, it’s off to its best start to a year since the 1979–1980 gold market, when it soared 254%.

Casey Research founder Doug Casey thinks gold will head much higher than that in the coming years. According to Doug, the financial system is held together by “chewing gum and bailing wire” right now. When the public realizes this, they’ll dump stocks and buy gold.

Doug says this mad rush could cause the price of gold to hit $5,000 an ounce, more than triple today's price.

If you don’t own gold yet or would like to buy more, watch this short presentation. It reveals what could possibly be the cheapest way to buy gold in America. Most mints, gold dealers, and online merchants can’t offer prices anywhere close to this good.

We encourage you to take advantage of this deal ASAP. It may not be available a few months from now.

Chart of the Day


Corporate America is cashing out of the stock market.

Today’s chart shows the value of new monthly stock buybacks since August 2013. You can see buyback activity has plummeted over the past couple months. According to MarketWatch, it’s now at the lowest level in four years.

What’s worse, corporate insider selling has surged. According to CNBC, corporate insiders, which includes CEOs and CFOs, are selling stock at the fastest pace since June 2015.

Corporate insiders know their companies better than anyone. They know if business is picking up or getting worse long before it shows up on the quarterly income statement. They also know if their stock is a good deal or overvalued.

The big drop in buybacks and the surge in insider selling tells us Corporate America doesn’t like stocks right now.

If you’re nervous about the stock market, we encourage you to own gold. But before you spend another dollar on gold, you need to first watch this short video. It could save you thousands of dollars. Click here to see why.

Delta Airlines recently experienced what it called a power outage in its home base of Atlanta, Georgia, causing all the company’s computers to go offline—all of them. This seemingly minor hiccup managed to singlehandedly ground all Delta planes for six hours, stranding passengers for even longer, as Delta scrambled to reshuffle passengers after the Monday debacle.
Where Delta blamed its catastrophic systems-wide computer failure vaguely on a loss of power, Georgia Power, their power provider, placed the ball squarely in Delta’s court, saying that “other Georgia Power customers were not affected”, and that they had staff on site to assist Delta.
Whether it was a true power outage, or an outage unique to Delta is fairly insignificant. The incident was a single company without power for six measly hours, yet it wreaked much havoc. Which brings to mind (or at least it should) what happens when the lights really go out—everywhere? And just how dependent is the U.S. on single-source power?
When you hear about the possible insufficiency, unreliability, or lack of resiliency of the U.S. power grid, your mind might naturally move toward the extreme, perhaps National Geographic’s Doomsday Preppers. Talks about what a U.S. power grid failure could really mean are also often likened to survivalist blogs that speak of building faraday cages and hoarding food, or possibly some riveting blockbuster movie about a well-intentioned government-sponsored genetically altered mosquito that leads to some zombie apocalypse.
But in the event of a power grid failure—and we have more than our fair share here in the U.S.—your survivalist savvy may be all for naught.
This horror story doesn’t need zombies or genetically altered mosquitos in order to be scary. Using data from the United States Department of Energy, the International Business Times reported in 2014 that the United States suffers more blackouts than any other developed country in the world.
Unfortunately, not much has been done since then to alleviate the system’s critical vulnerabilities.
In theory, we all understand the wisdom about not putting all our eggs in one basket, as the old-adage goes. Yet the U.S. has done just that with our U.S. power grid. Sadly, this infrastructure is failing, and compared to many other countries, the U.S. is sauntering slowly behind many other more conscientious countries, seemingly unconcerned with its poor showing.
The Grid, by Geography and Geopolitics
According to the United States Department of Energy, the American power grid is made up of three smaller grids, known as interconnections, which transport energy all over the country. The Eastern Interconnection provides electricity to states to the east of the Rocky Mountains, while the Western interconnection serves the Rocky Mountain states and those that border the Pacific Ocean.
The Texas Interconnected System is the smallest grid in the nation, and serves most of Texas, although small portions of the Lone Star state benefit from the other two grids.
And if you’re wondering why Texas gets a grid of its own, according to the Texas Tribune they have their own grid “to avoid dealing with the feds.” Now that’s true survivalist savvy—in theory.
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Juli1208A
When you look at the layout of the grid above, it’s easy to see that a single grid going offline would disrupt a huge segment of North America.
Wait—make that all of North America.
To give it to you straight, our national electrical grid works as an interdependent network. This means that the failure of any one part would trigger the borrowing of energy from other areas. Whichever grid attempts to carry the extra load would likely be overtaxed, as the grid is already taxed to near max levels during peak hot or cold seasons.
The aftermath of a single grid going down could leave millions of residents without power for days, weeks or longer depending on the scope of the failure.
So although on the surface it looks like the U.S. has wisely put its eggs into three separate baskets for safer keeping, the U.S. has in essence, lined up our baskets so that if one were to drop, or if the bottom were to fall out, the eggs from basket #1 would fall into basket #2. Which would break from the load, falling into basket #3—eventually scrambling all the eggs. Sorry, Texas. Related: Is Saudi Arabia About To Cry Uncle In The Oil Price War?
When multiple parts of the grid fail at the same time, it’s not necessarily more catastrophic—the catastrophe just happens more quickly.
According to Jon Wellinghoff, chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, in an interview with USA Today, "You have a very vulnerable system that will continue to be vulnerable until we figure out a way to break it out into more distributed systems."
The Grid, by the Numbers
Let’s look at the math behind the power grid, and what the U.S. is doing to improve it.
1. Through the Recovery Act, the DOE invested about $4.5 billion in the power grid since 2010 to modernize it and “increase its reliability”. $4.5 billion seems like a fairly large number, unless you’re talking about a single machine that serves as the lifeblood to nearly every human in North America—a machine that was conceived in 1882 by Thomas Edison—with little changed since then, conceptually speaking. For people who reside in weather-challenged areas, such as my home state of Michigan, a home generator is almost as necessary of an appliance as a microwave, and people are scrambling to go “off-grid” with alternative energy solutions—an act that will not provide them immunity should the lights go out everywhere else. And for what it’s worth, for those of you sporting solar and wind energy, you’re further taxing the grid—the grid just wasn’t designed to accommodate the surges and lulls of such systems, however green you find them.
2. Power outages—just the ones due to severe weather—cost the U.S. economy between $18 and $33 billion annually in spoiled inventory, delayed production, grid damage, lost wages and output. Despite a few billion dollars being thrown at the grid to improve its resiliency or reliability, the number of outages due to weather is expected to increase, assuming that climate change will indeed intensify extreme weather, as some predict.
3. The total annual cost from power outages, per federal data published in The Smart Grid: An Introduction, is a whopping $150 billion.
4. As of 2014, the DOE had generously spent $100 million (million, not billion) into modernizing the grid for the specific purposes of surviving a cyber incident by maintaining critical functions. This would be measures separate from making the grid more reliable.
5. The American Society of Civil Engineers gave the electrical grid a grade of D+ in early 2014 after evaluating the grid for security and other vulnerabilities.
6. The average age of large power transformers (LPTs) in the US is [url=http://energy.gov/sites/prod/files/Large Power Transformer Study - June 2012_0.pdf]40 years[/url], with 70 percent of all large power transformers being 25 years or older. According to the DOE, “aging power transformers are subject to increased risk of failure.”
7. LPTs cannot be easily replaced. They are custom built, have long lead times (even 20 months, in some cases), cost millions of dollars, are usually purchased from foreign entities due to limited U.S. capacity, and weigh up to 400 tons. All this means that patching and fixing is likely to be favored over replacement, despite their age and associated risk.
Working with those figures, most of which are provided by federal sources, this means the U.S. invested, from 2010 to 2014, $4.5 billion to modernize the grid, along with an additional $100 million to stave off cyber threats. That’s $4.6 billion over four years, or $1.15 billion per year in upgrades. Next to the $150 billion lost each year due to outages, it looks like someone has done some subpar calculating.
The security of the power grid, which is a separate issue from the reliability of the power grid, is a whole other issue that concerns itself with hypothetical one-off scenarios—albeit terrible one-off scenarios. But at least there’s a chance that those one-off scenarios, such as a cyber-attack on the grid or some terrorist activity, would not come to fruition. A chance, at least.
What we are certain of, is that severe weather will continue to stress and threaten our power grid. And unless something changes, ultimately, it will fail. So when we talk about reliability, we’re talking about “when” and “for how long” scenarios, not “what if”.
The how-long factor plays a huge role into how bad is “bad”; not because of the events that one knows will follow, which includes mass food spoilage, deaths due to overheating in the hot summer months, deaths due to freezing in the cold regions, and the halting of everything we take for granted these days—airlines, internet and most other forms of communication.
All that sounds pretty bleak, but when you throw into the mix the mania and hysteria that would ensue shortly after such catastrophic events, it will be so much worse. Best-selling author Charles Mackay, in his book Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds, does a pretty good job describing, through example, how crowd decisions and reactions are significantly less sensible than individual decisions—sometimes downright nutty, as evidenced by Tulip Mania, where supply and demand—or in this case scarcity and demand, drove up the prices of tulip bulbs to ridiculous levels.
In the context of blackouts, we saw this in 1977, when a lightning strike in New York on a Hudson River substation tripped two circuit breakers, causing power to be diverted in order to protect the circuit. The chain of events that followed ended in an entire blackout for the area, which led to mass rioting, over 1000 deliberately set fires, the looting of 1600 stores, and the eventual arrest of 4,500 perpetrators and the injury of 550 officers, according to some estimates. The power was only out for 25 hours, and in one area.
In all likelihood, the haves (those who have removed themselves from the grid and prepared accordingly) will soon be overrun by the have-nots in the event of any extended blackout, with heavily populated areas taking the brunt of the chaos—and your solar roof panels or generator will not suffice as your savior.
The U.S. would be wise to follow the lead of some other countries, such as Denmark, which has decentralized its grid, but we doubt the cash exists to fund such an ambitious overhaul of an archaic system that has been left essentially unattended for decades upon decades.

Will 'Black August' Come To Every City Across America? - Sun 14 Aug 2016, 5:02 pm

Will 'Black August' Come To Every City Across America? This Is What A Hillary Clinton Presidency Could Look Like And How Obama Could Stay In Office For 4 More Years

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Obamas_2016

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

Rule #1 of surviving Obama's 2016: "BE WHERE EVERYONE ELSE ISN'T AND STAY AWAY WHEN VIOLENCE ESCALATES IN YOUR AREA!"

Back on May 28th of 2016, we published a story on ANP in which we shared with our readers a warning from former Special Forces officer Tim Kennedy: "It's a scary thing coming up...just wait until July, just wait until August" we were warned back then. In an interview with Infowars, Kennedy also warned that we were witnessing a 'perfect petri dish for bad things happening' in America.

"Civil unrest is coming" we were also told then. Now we learn of a chilling security bulletin issued by the FBI's National Gang Intelligence Center warning of an increased risk of violence across the country during 'Black August'. Might 'Black August' spread to every city across America? We pray for intervention. Much more on 'Black August' below. 


Only weeks after our May 28th story we published another story that shared with you bombshell proof leaders of black lives matter were pushing for martial law, no elections and a few more years for Barack Obama to destroy this country after hacked Twitter DM's from blm 'leaders' revealed plans to try to get the Democratic and Republican Conventions cancelled using continued protests that led to civil unrest. 

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Fbi_black_august_warning

We've warned again and again that if the globalists became aware that there was no way they could complete their planned destruction of America, that they would either outright steal the election for their candidate (Hitlery Clinton) or cause so much chaos throughout America using 'orchestrated terrorism' that Obama would argue he'd have no choice but to cancel the elections after imposing a 'state of emergency' throughout our nation. As we've also reported, Obama has all of the executive orders he needs to attempt to impose a dictatorship upon this country. 

As we witnessed last night in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, with angry blacks going on a rampage and specifically targeting whites and cops, our previous warnings are now playing out before our very eyes. Unfortunately, we also expect such incidents will probably increase - afterall, if Donald Trump wins the presidency, the globalists may have less than 100 days to complete their process of destroying America. With Hillary's campaign now imploding, it's likely becoming more and more clear to them that they'll have to complete their takedown of America another way.

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Milwaukee-20160814044859-770x430

In the comments directly above the videos below from a source within the law enforcement community, we're warned that what happened in Milwaukee last night could be coming to every big city in America though we pray God intervenes. As we're also told, what happened in Milwaukee is likely what a Hillary Clinton presidency will bring to America. 

Our 'deep background source' also tells us what is happening now is no surprise to those who have been paying attention, especially after the FBI recently warned of a 'Black August' plan to 'target for death' white cops and correctional officers by black prison gangs. Has this chilling 'Black August' plan also spread outside of the prisons? First, from our source.:  
 
The Black Guerilla Family is the militant/animalistic ungodly terrorist side to this black power movement. They rival with many other black gangs but they will kill every white person they can. I dealt with dozens of them when I used to work in the federal prisons and they were a serious problem. Their tactics are to intimidate/harass/attack in numbers. Most of them are prislamist (prison Islamic). They literally believe that all white people should be slaves to the blacks.

And in regard to the uptick of attacks to law enforcement both on the streets or in the prosions and jails is rising to a point that eventually, more cops will be killed on a wide spread crime spree or we will only have our special cases. I can't believe I'm saying this, but Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown have become the leading role models for thuggish martyrdom. This country needs Jesus.

The story from Got News tells us that after the shooting of a thug in Milwaukee who'd still be alive if he'd only followed the law, a cousin of his called for a "gallon of blood from every cop" as seen in the Facebook post screenshot below.  One Georgia police officer was also shot and killed Saturday night by a suspect who was still on the run, continuing a heartbreaking theme this summer of law enforcement and Trump supporters in the line of fire and simmering anger in the streets of America exploding in rage.

As we reported above, the FBI has put out a warning that we believe everybody should be paying close attention to, not just the prison guards to which it was originally addressed. This warning helps to tell us just how far down the rabbit hole America has fallen. From the NY Post story.:

[size=13]White cops and correction officers are being targeted for death by a black prison gang in what’s being called “Black August,” according to a chilling security bulletin obtained by The Post.


“The warning involves an increased risk for violence during ‘Black August,’” say a sternly worded internal memo issued to commanding officers at city jails.

“Commanding officers are instructing all staff to be cognizant of their surroundings and extremely vigilant at all times,” the spokeswoman said. “As always we are regularly assessing threats and taking appropriate security measures.”

The FBI memo warns that members of the gang discussed ambushing officers who were parked in alleys or on side streets.

A prison gang known as the Black Guerrilla Family, a group tied to the Black Panthers, began Black August in the California penal system in the 1970s to honor fallen members, particularly Black Panther George Jackson, who was shot to death by prison guards at San Quentin when he tried to escape in 1971.

The gang, which still has members across the country, has called on inmates to kill correction officers and members of the Aryan Brotherhood.

The safety alert, citing an inmate source, “claims the BGF has a 2-for-1 kill policy. That the BGF is “going to kill correctional officers and Aryan Brotherhood gang members to send a firm message. And the attacks will occur across the country, not just in California.”

The huge survival note written by Steve Quayle on a story he linked to covering the 'Milwaukee mess' last night should for the remainder of 2016 be looked at as 'rule #1' of surviving what is quite obviously now here in America: "BE WHERE EVERYONE ELSE ISN'T AND STAY AWAY WHEN VIOLENCE ESCALATES IN YOUR AREA!" 

With 'Black Lives Matters' rioters proving that they are a terroristic hate group by targeting whites in the streets for beatdowns as shared in this story from Paul Joseph Watson at Infowars, Sheriff David Clarke's country is burning in Milwaukee as seen in the photographs within this story and videos below.

As the Infowars story tells us, 4 buildings and a police car were set on fire after cops shot and killed an armed man with a lengthy criminal record who was carrying an illegal firearm used in a burglary during a chase. All of this anger and rage spilling out over the death of a man who would most likely still be alive if he wasn't breaking the law in the first place. The streets of Milwaukee are clearly a metaphor and microcosm of the streets of America. 

Milwaukee area reporters were also targeted for beatdowns and as the first video below shows us, the rule of law was clearly out the window last night in Milwaukee. 

As Quayle also warned us in another SQ note, "WATCH THE POLICE AND CITIZEN SHOOTING INCREASE ALMOST DAILY AS THE 'AGENT PROVOCATEURS' SEEK TO ESCALATE DIVIDE AND CONQUER PLANS, PRIOR TO THE ELECTION!"

Why would these rioters specifically target whites and cops and will they be held accountable for their actions with what should obviously be hate crimes charges filed agains them? The conversations that took place while whites were being hunted down by blacks as outlined below are an absolute disgrace. Language warning for the excerpt below and the videos at the bottom of this story.:

[size=13]The clip shows angry rioters chanting “black power!” before asking “is they white?” as cars slowly drive past.


Yeah they white!” states someone else, prompting the mob to run towards the vehicle.

“Yeah they white, get their ass!” screams another.

“Hey they beatin’ up every white person!” exclaims another rioter.

“He white – beat his head – bitch!” he adds.

The footage appears to show the mob attacking cars and trying to drag out the drivers.

The footage then cuts to an upper floor window before the person shooting the video states, “I think they just beat some white bitch ass for no reason – they bust open the window.”

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Obamas_legacy_in_2016

If these photographs and videos show Barack Obama's 'legacy', he should hang his head low and resign in absolute disgrace. It's also clear that a 'Hitlery Clinton' presidency would likely bring much more of the same as she's already proven to our men and women in uniform that she absolutely hates members of the US military and law enforcement.

Has America reached the 'point on no return'? We warned back on April 28th of 2016 that 'the rest of 2016 may be one wild ride' after another 'insider' warned of martial law before the election. As Susan Duclos told us only a week ago in a story on ANP, there is much proof that the US is preparing for a 'huge event' as the United Nations has been given the power to 'target Americans' by another Obama executive order.

With Milwaukee in flames and racial tensions still boiling over nationwide, are we about to witness the 'final takedown' of America? We'll close here with a few more comments from our 'deep background source'.:

Ignorance is literally strangling this country into a perpetual criminal coma. Another gang member killed while committing a crime, and yet again another out cry for justice. Well, he got it! You don't want to be chased by the woods then stay the hell out of the woods.

The pure ignorance from some of the comments is staggering. This violent response to the police has been a well played move but only a few of the pawns have fallen for this treachory. I warned before about this travesty coming to every major city, especially those with a large number of "African Americans/Blacks" that live in poverty and chose to stay in poverty. They think they have made a kingdom out of these Warsaw ghettos but if they could only see the lie they have been fed for so many years.

I hope these looters and rioters are doing these acts of violence then telling people they are Christians. Personally, all of these "#BLACKLIVESMATTER" supporters are truly becoming what they were intended to be. They are sadist, satanist, ungodly, mongols who are given marching orders communist. They have no clear vision of right or wrong and they believe that the law does don't apply to them. THIS IS WHAT A HILLARY CLINTON PRESIDENCY WOULD LOOK LIKE, JUST LIKE OBAMA'S.

BLACKLIVESMATTER AND LA RAZA ARE SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST STREET GANGS THAT EQUAL RECOGNITION TO ANY OTHER DOMESTIC TERRORISM ORGANIZATION THAT IS ON OUR TERRORIST WATCH LIST AT DHS. THEY AND THEIR LEADERS SHOULD BE PROSECUTED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW.

MR. TRUMP, I HOPE YOU'RE SERIOUS ABOUT RESTORING THE LAW AND NOT JUST ANOTHER JUDAS GOAT LIKE OUR PAST PRESIDENTS. PLEASE GOD, HELP US CULL THESE SICK ANIMALS FROM THE FLOCK.

New photo of Hillary being propped up so she wouldn’t fall
Posted on August 10, 2016 by Dr. Eowyn | 44 Comments
You saw this recent pic of Hillary being helped up the stairs by two men:
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Hillary-being-helped-up-stairs-2016
Now, Kristinn Taylor of Gateway Pundit has discovered another photo of Hillary being held by a man to keep her from falling.
The photo was taken by Mark Ralston of AFP/Getty Images on April 16, 2016, of Hillary during a campaign stop in Southwest College, Los Angeles, before a huge fundraiser that evening hosted by George Clooney. (FOTM is publishing the photo as “fair use” in accordance with section 107 of the US Copyright Law.)
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Hillary-propped-up-by-man-in-l-a-april-2016The photo above shows Hillary Clinton being firmly held up by a man on her right side (Man #1) to keep her from falling over as she leans slightly forward speaking to the crowd with a microphone in her left hand. Man #1’s right hand is clasping Hillary’s right hand, while his left hand grasps her upper arm.
Another man on Hillary’s left (Man #2) has his right hand and arm extended, ready to assist her. Behind Hillary is an obscured third person (Man #3) whose extended hand can be seen reaching out under Hillary’s left elbow.
A CNN tweet shows a view of her standing unassisted, apparently on a slightly elevated platform:
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Hillary-clinton-southwest-college-la-april-16-2016
Hillary may also be using adult diapers for incontinence. According to National Enquirer, the humble supermarket “tabloid” that broke the stories of former Democratic VP candidate John Edwards’ adultery and out-of-wedlock child, and actor Charlie Sheen’s HIV and off-the-charts bisexual promiscuity:

“insiders on the campaign trail are whispering that Hillary’s bizarre new fashion choices [of long tunics or jackets over pants] are also really cover for her medical woes. ‘People are mocking her outfits that look like they come from a ‘Star Trek’ movie,’ said one journalist following her campaign, ‘but there’s speculation that they also cover up that she uses adult diapers for incontinence.’
In the early days of her presidential campaign, Hillary’s energy level originally seemed ‘good so far,’ confided a close source — who added, ‘but behind the scenes, she appears exhausted, dazed and confused at times.’ Insiders said that her most trusted aide, Huma Abedin, even sleeps in her hotel room to keep an eye on her ‘in case there’s a medical emergency.'”

Born October 26, 1947, Hillary Clinton is 68 years old and should not require help going up a few steps or standing up to speak. But these photos clearly show that she does need help. That’s because she has a history of blackouts, falls, memory loss, blinding headaches, vision problems and collapses — which dates back at least a decade. They include:

  • On January 31, 2005, at age 57, Hillary fainted during a luncheon speech in Buffalo, N.Y.
  • In June 2009, at age 61, she broke her right elbow — which required two hours of surgery — when she slipped and fell in a State Department garage.
  • In January 2011, at age 63, she fell while boarding a flight leaving Yemen.



  • In Dec. 2012, at age 65, she collapsed at home, striking her head, supposedly because she was dizzy and dehydrated from a flu. She sustained a concussion and was hospitalized for three nights, where an MRI discovered a blood clot in a vein between the brain and the skull, which was treated with blood thinner medication.
  • When she recovered and reappeared in public on January 23, 2013, to testify in Capitol Hill on Benghazi (wherein she infamously retorted, “What does it now matter?,” when asked why she had lied that a little-known video had provoked the Islamist attack on the U.S. consulate), she was wearing thick Fresnel prism eyeglasses designed to correct double vision caused by severe head trauma. In February 2016, she was seen wearing the glasses again while campaigning in Las Vegas.

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Hillaryglasses1An unsteady gait, clumsiness or frequent falls, are symptomatic of subcortical vascular dementia (see “Bombshell: Hillary Clinton has dementia according to leaked medical records“). Dizziness, blurred or double vision, clumsiness, loss of balance, and weakness in an arm or leg are early symptoms of multiple sclerosis (see “Hillary Clinton said to have multiple sclerosis; a stroke risk”).
Whether due to subcortical vascular dementia or multiple sclerosis, Hillary’s frequent falls and double vision are symptomatic of a neurological problem that will only get progressively worse.

Getting Out Of Dodge – Choosing Your Location, Building a Realistic GOOD Bag & Creating A Cache Support System

By Ray Gano -
August 5, 2016

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Ray-gano-medBy Ray Gano
There are a lot of things going on that have many people concerned. So much so that a number of people have contacted me about putting together a longer term “Get Out Of Dodge” bag / plan.
We are constantly being threatened with economic collapse, Plague / Pandemic, and more recently an oppressive government that will become even more oppressive if Hillary Clinton wins the presidency. If that happens, I can clearly see out nation heading towards a civil war. Couple her being in the presidency, but there have been rumors being floated around that Obama is putting his crosshairs on being the next Secretary General of The UN.
Can you imagine what sort of carnage that would bring about for the US?
Who ever wins the presidency will also name at least four supreme court justices. If that is Hillary, she will stack the justices in her favor and they will be her “go to yes men.” That means she will be able to make any law she wants and have it stick thanks to the SCOTUS help.
If there is an outbreak of civil war, she will need help and if Obama does in fact have his eye on the secretary general position, he would be more than happy to send in UN troops to assist Hillary’s battle of pushing back the dissidents.
So needless to say, there is a lot going on that could cause someone to head for the hills for the long term.

Understanding My Foundation Methods For Preparedness

I am one who works on building realistic foundations via achievable goals. I encourage people to take “baby steps” and continue to take baby steps constantly moving forward. What is amazing in using this method is that when you look back and see the ground you have covered, you are amazed at how easy it was to do and what little effort it took to achieve.
How I work is have people build bags / kits and then build upon those bags / kits and expand.
For example, here are some articles that if you have not read, please take the time to read because these are foundation bags / kits that you need to have knowledge of if you are going to put together a long term GOOD (Get Out Of Dodge) bag

Once you have read these, you will understand my methodology and keeping thing simple and modular so that you can put together an effective GOOD bag and create a needed cache support system.

Difference Between a BOB – 72 Hour Bag & Your GOOD Bag

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 MOLLI-RuckYour 72 hour / BOB is a bag that have needed supplies and gear to help you survive for at least 72 hours / 3 days.
You would most likely use this bag set up if you needed to quickly vacate your home due to natural disaster like an earthquake, tornado, flood, etc. This bag is NOT meant for you to stay in the field for more than a week at the most.
Your GOOD Bag (Get Out Of Dodge) bag is what you will be using with the knowledge that you may not be coming back for a span of time or not coming back ever.
What you need to realize also is that like it or not, you will not be able to carry everything you own on your back.
That is why just putting together a GOOD Bag is just a starting point and you will need to create a cache support system where you have points along your route where you have buried supplies to help you get to your final destination.

Determine Your End Destination & Then Work Backwards

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Compass-retro-mapPutting together a GOOD Bag and supporting plan is big time prepping and a lot of thought has to go into this plan.
The best place to start is determine where your end destination will be. That means that you are going to have to take some time scouting around to determine where you want to end up if you are “Getting Outta Dodge.”
Maybe you have property out in the country, have family that lives out in the country or maybe there might be a national forest in your area.
No matter what, you need to have a point where you will end up. Knowing this will help you in putting together your GOOD bag and cache support system.
For the sake of this article, let’s imagine that our end point destination is some location in a national forest.
One of the reasons I pick a national forest is that you can camp indefinitely and even build temporary structures. Most national forests are wilderness area and you will not have many people traipsing through your area, especially if you have chosen an area that is very deep in the forest where access is very limited.
A great way to determine an end point is getting on Google Maps. For example, I am from the Texas area and I have chosen for my GOOD area the national forests areas near Lufkin Texas. I chose that because there are three national forests to choose from, Sabine, Angelina and Davy Crockett national forests.
There are very few rules when staying in the wilderness areas of a national forest. The biggest rule is no motorized vehicles, hang gliders or helicopters allowed. The primary rule is “Leave only footprints and take only pictures.”
Using Google maps, try to find a place that is close to water, a creek, stream or river is best. You do not want your GOOD site actually on these spots, but close to them. Water always brings people and people naturally follow the paths water takes.
It is also best to find someplace that is “high ground” so that in the event of a storm, water flows away from you. Having high ground also gives you a tactical advantage when it comes to defending your area.
Once you have chosen several places via Google maps, you need to then do a scouting mission and venture off into the woods. Usually you do not need any permits or such to venture off into the wilderness areas located in national forests.


Scouting Your GOOD Destination

You have found some possible places for your GOOD Destination. But how do you find it once you are out there?
This is where having a good hand held GPS unit comes in handy. I am a big fan of Garmin and have several Garmin GPS units
See, once you have found your areas on Google maps you are then able to copy the coordinates from Google maps into your GPS unit and it will then guide you to your destination points.
For this, I like my Garmin eTrex Legend Hcx hand held. There are many models of eTrex by garmin, the one I have I purchase 7 years ago. The eTrex Legend. It is waterproof and it has a color screen which helps identify areas that have creeks or streams.
As much as I would like to recommend this, I just checked the price for this unit today and it has gone up to $200. I bought mine when it was just over $100. Talk about inflation.
Now if you are interested in this unit you can look at it here…
Garmin eTrex Legend Hcx – http://tinyurl.com/PZ-Garmin-eTrex-Legend
But a more up to date and less expensive model that I like is the Garmin eTrex 10 Worldwide. This is made for hiking and is also waterproof. It does not have the color screen, but it will help you get to where you need to go.
Garmin eTrex 10 Worldwide – http://tinyurl.com/PZ-Garmin-Worldwide-10
Both of these are great GPS units that will help you get to your GOOD destination. Without these, you will probably get lost.
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Garmin-gps-units
Another thing you want to get is a lanyard so that you can hang your GPS around your neck and keep your hands free. Here is a no frills lanyard for $3.00. Can’t beat it.
GPS Lanyard – http://tinyurl.com/PZ-eTrex-Lanyard
A good idea is also having some maps and a good Triduum Military Compass so that if by chance your GPS unit does die on you or runs out of batteries, you have a back up.
To do that, you need to brush up on map reading and land navigation. WHICH, if you are a prepper, it is a great skill to have anyways.
What you will need is a good triduum lensatic compass. This is what we used in the military. The triduum allows you to shine your flashlight on it and it will hold a good “light charge” for some time so that you can also conduct night navigation.

Military Coordinate Map Scale – http://tinyurl.com/PZ-Coordinate-Scale
Map Reading and Land Navigation: FM 3-25.26  – http://tinyurl.com/PZ-FM-3-25-26
You can also download FM3-25.26 for free if you do not want to purchase a paperback version. But I recommend you having a paperback version so that you can keep it in your back pack.

You can download kindle and ebook versions from this link as well.

Finally, you will have to order topographical maps of the area that you are looking at and you can order them from the USGS. You can also download them for free from the USGS site. This might be a bit easier for you if you do not want to deal with bulky 1:250,000 scale maps.

We have covered finding your GOOD spot and how to get to your GOOD spot.
This is a good time to check your BOB – Bug Out Bag and giving it a test as well.

Preparing Your BOB / 72 Hour Bag

See, a lot of people have a good 72 hour bag / BOB but seldom do people take it out into the field and actually “test” to see what they have in their bag is actually good or is it just dead weight.
Going on your GOOD scouting trip is a great chance to also see how well equipped your 72 hour / BOB is and it will also help you refine your bag’s contents.
If you have not built a 72 hour / BOB, then take the time to read these articles that I mentioned up above…

Building Your Own Customized Realistic 72 Hour Bug Out Bag
http://raygano.com/building-your-own-customized-realistic-72-hour-bug-out-bag/
As I stated before, I use a foundation method and start from the smallest and build upon that to get to the largest.
For example, my “office get home bag” is the basics that I use in my 72 hour / Bug out bag.
This 72 hour / BOB will be the basis which we will build our GOOD bag from. But first you need to put together your 72 hour / BOB and test it out in the field.


Things You Want To Add To Your 72 Hour / BOB

You are going to be hiking in the wilderness for several days scouting an area for your GOOD destination.
You do not know what you will encounter, so it is better to be prepared than not.
A few items that I would recommend adding to your bag.


A Solid Machete – The Cold Steel Cutlass Machete

This sword disguised as a machete is about 2 lbs in weight and the blade thickness is 2.8mm thick and as with all the Cold Steel Machetes they are made from 1055 carbon steel.
What I like about this sword is that it has the full encased handle that your hand will slip into, much like that standard cutlass.
For $25 and change at Amazon you can’t go wrong for getting basically a fully functional sword disguised as a machete.
If you are hiking in true wilderness, you will probably come up against vines, brambles and such that you need to clear just to get through the brush.
Like it or not, depending on where you are going, you need to think about snakes. My GOOD spot is in Texas and we have a boat load of rattlers. This machete is a great defense against those bugger snakes and will take care of them rather quickly.

Condor Cross Draw Tactical Vest

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Condor-Tactical-VestCondor is a company that puts out some pretty good gear. It isn’t totally military grade, but it is pretty good gear for the price.
I have talked about this vest in the past and with all the pouches and pockets, you can carry pepper spray, a stun gun, strap a first aid pack on the back and also put a water bladder inside the back compartment.
This is a great vest and the holster you can adjust it to hold a handgun, which I would recommend taking on your GOOD scouting trip.
Here are specs for the vest…
– Right side features 3 ammo pouches, large shell carrying pouch, and a shooting pad. – Left side features a pistol holster for most medium-framed pistols, 3 pistol mag pouches that are adjustable to the height of most normal-sized mag.
– Vest is mounted on tough nylon mesh material which aids ventilation. – Shoulders on vest can be adjusted with long velcro strips, and also have 2 mental D-rings for the attachment of carabiners or other material.
– Vest zips up in front and can be secured additionally with a pistol belt (included) threaded through the loops on the bottom. – Interior of vest has two zip-up document pockets left and right.
– Rear of vest is double-ply mesh which allows for the addition of a hydration bladder. – A carrying handle is provided as well as strips across the back for the addition of camouflage material or other pouches.
– Left and right sides can be adjusted for width via drawstrings
I like that there are many pockets, pouches. With something like this, you can also drop your main pack and still have gear on you if you need to hike somewhere quick that you do not want to bring your 72 hour back pack.
I also REALLY like the fact that I can put my camel back water bladder in the back and will help me stay hydrated.
Again this is not military grade, but for civilian use and being prepared it is an excellent vest.
The added belt with two mag pouches are good to keep pepper spray, trail bars / energy bars or a tactical folding knife like the Cold Steel Voyager Clip Point XL.
MOLLE strips on the back also allow you to clip on dump bag to hold spent magazines as well as a small pack of sorts that might carry a day’s rations and a first aid pack.
Finally, you can wear this vest with your 72 hour Back Pack / BOB and use it as an LBE – (Load Bearing Equipment) to carry your compass, flashlight, snacks for the hike in, etc.

A Glock 19 with a TLR Flashlight Attached

As some of you may know, I am a huge fan of Glock. I like other handguns, but Glock is my go to survival handgun.
You can read about my choices in handguns here in this article “My Gun Lineup”
My Gun Lineup – http://raygano.com/my-gun-lineup/
This is my Glock 19 with a TLR-1 police grade flashlight that is attached to the lower rail. This is an outstanding set up and is great to use in when in a hiking environment.
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Ray-Glock19-TLR1
If you are wearing the cross draw tactical vest that I recommend above, you can adjust the holster to fit the G-19 with the TLR-1 flashlight.
Since you are in the wilderness, I would also highly recommend having multiple magazines of hollow point bullets.
The area that I am choosing does have some cougars, bobcats and I have heard that there are also some black bears in the area.
9mm hollow points will do some serious damage to any of these sort of animal in an emergency situation. Having some back up magazines ready is also a good thing.

Kindle Reader With Solar Power Back Up

I am a huge fan of the Kindle because I can take an entire prepper library with me any where I go and not have to lug a bunch of books with me.
Amazon has done a great job with the Kindle Fire and now, you can get a 7” display with 8 Gig storage for only $49.00 from Amazon.
This is a great buy and if you stick a 32 Gig Sim memory chip in it, you can download videos and such and take them with you.
Face it. You are going to be out in the wilderness at night and you are going to be twitting your thumbs because you have nothing to do.
This is why I recommend taking a Kindle with you so at least you can do more prepper research and have valuable manuals with you.
You will need to build a survival shelter, which is the best one to build for the environment you are in?
HEY.. you have a manual on just that very topic on your Kindle.
Wondering what flora and fauna is edible at your GOOD location?
You have a reference book with color pictures on your Kindle so you can see what is edible and what is going to kill you if you eat it.
Want to read God’s Word while sitting in the wilderness, you can download the bible to your Kindle.
How about watching that video on how to make arrow heads out of stone? Yep… Kindle.
There are a lot of things that can help you in the wilderness that you can keep on your Kindle and this is why I highly recommend this.
Amazon Kindle Fire 7” – http://tinyurl.com/PZ-Amazon-Kindle-Fire
You will need to keep your GPS, Cell phone and your Kindle charged up. This is why I also recommend the Goal Zero Solar Panel Recharge Kit.
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Goal-zero-chargerWith the Goal Zero Solar Panel Recharge Kit you have a portable, rugged charging kit. This is the solar panel kit that I personally own and I picked it up from Goal Zero when I met the reps at a conference I was speaking at. You are able to charge AA from the sun or from the built in USB port, then power your phone, MP3, GPS, or perk up your tablet in a pinch. You can also plug any device you have directly into the panels themselves and charge your devices.
The solar panels are also made to be hung off of a back pack so that you can charge things while you are hiking.
A side note, I have used this to charge my cell phone when the electricity went out for over 5 hours. This worked great and I was able to stay in contact with the world thanks to the Goal Zero solar panels.
They really do work.

Bug Spray – Mosquito Repellent

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 10 Off-deep-woodsYou are going out into the wilderness, there are bugs like chiggers, ticks, fleas and mosquitoes.
Here is an old army trick. Go to your local pet supply story and buy two – four+ flea collars.
Take one collar and wrap it around your right leg down by your hiking boots. Do the same with the second collar for your left leg.
Now depending on how wide you are at the mid section, you might need 2-3 more flea collars. Connect these together through the flea collar buckle and then string it through your belt loops.
If you want extra added security, put a flea collar in your back pack at the very top of the load.
You want to also have on hand bug spray that contains DEET. OFF Deep Woods Bug Spray is what I recommend and what I use. I hate chiggers and mosquitoes and this stuff will kill the little buggers.

Another thing that I would highly recommend is getting some mosquito coils. These are round coils that you light and they burn like incense putting off a smoke that repels mosquitoes and other flying critters for about 4-6 hours.

Arriving & Hiking In To Your GOOD Destination

You have now arrived to the national forest area where you think you will find your GOOD destination for you to bug out to.
One of the first things you want to do is get your GPS out and mark a waypoint where your car is located or at least some sort of public spot that you can navigate back to.
Believe it or not, this is a huge mistake that a lot of people make. They forget to mark their starting point. Now most GPS will keep it in memory, but trying to find that when you are lost and in a panic makes it harder to find.
So, do yourself a favor and make a way point and name it CAR, RANGER STATION or something like that.
Put your flea collars on, your cross draw vest, your back pack and put your GPS around your neck and you are off.
I would recommend walking with your machete in hand, think snakes and brush.
When you are making your way to your destination, try to stick to animal trails if at all possible. Animal trails usually will take the animal to one of three places…

  • A place to sleep
  • A place to eat
  • A place to drink

You need to have all three of those as well and maybe the animals know some good spots. It is worth checking out while on your hike.
Another point about animal trails is that they are used by animals. That means that they will walk behind you later on and possibly cover of your tracks, that is if it is a herd of deer or something like that. Which in East Texas where we are looking at, it is very possible.

Say you come across a stream and find fish in it. Mark that in your GPS and name if FISHING STREAM.
If you notice a herd of deer, mark that in your GPS as well. Deer are territorial and believe it or not, their home range is usually less than a mile. So if you see them, they are likely in their home range.
You want to identify and many food sources as you are able to. Once you are at your GOOD destination and you are settling down. Take out your Topo Map and mark all your food sources from your GPS to your Topo map.
Another thing you want to look out for is ambush points. An ambush point is a portion of land that you can use in your favor to trap someone or something and then attack it.
For example, you come to a ravine where the sides go up sharply and you are forced to walk through a small area. The tactical advantage is to the person who is on the high ground looking down on the area that is constraining.
Another ambush point might be an open area that has been cut of all the trees. There are a lot of stumps and such sticking up and these create a hazard area where people or animals can be tripped up. They are forced to go slow through this area so that they can navigate it safely.
When you find these different ambush points, mark them in your GPS and name them something like AMBUSH #1 or OPEN FIELD AMBUSH. Name them something that will help you remember them.
You want to have ambush points so that you can put traps and such if you are in a SHTF situation.
Be it to trap animals or to trap bad people from coming into your Get Out Of Dodge area.
When you are at your GOOD Camp, again mark them down on your Topo map.
What you need to remember is that you are on a scouting mission, not a camping trip. You need to determine if this area will make a GOOD destination or not.
Much of what the land has to offer will also determine if you are going to live and thrive in that area or not. If it will not support you with natural resources that you can hunt or gather, then you may need to research another area that has more natural resources that are available to you.

Dear Chancellor Merkel, When Does Turkey Join The EU?

Dear chancellor Angela Merkel,
In light of events in Nice and Turkey, and given your migration policy is the #1 Reason the UK voted to Leave, inquiring minds have a few questions for you:


  1. When do 80 Million Turks have visa-free travel to the rest of Europe?
  2. When do you admit your open arms welcome of refugees was pure idiocy?
  3. When will you admit that thanks to German auto exports to the UK, that the UK actually has the upper hand in Brexit negotiations?
  4. When will you speak out on Erdogan’s takeover of the press, his military and judicial purge, and his silencing of all critics?
  5. What are you going to do about your misguided Pact With the Devil that left European leaders recoiling?
  6. Do you agree with Martin Schulz’s Tweet (below) on a return to a rule of law, separation of powers, and respect of fundamental rights in Turkey?

 
Bonus Questions
Dear chancellor, when do you admit you totally and completely screwed up in multiple ways?
Finally, What are you going to do about any of this except make ridiculous speeches in praise of the “European way” hoping against hope that fundamental problems correct themselves?
