Prepping and Survival Drills to Run

by Ryan If there is one theme that I preach repeatedly for survival situations, it is to practice before your life depends upon your skills. So many survivalists pour through books, videos, and television shows learning every little trick in the book. However, too many people stop there. I cannot count how many times I expected a survival technique to be simple, yet it turned out to be nearly impossible. More importantly, I like to focus on time sensitive situations that would really create natural pressure. In this article I will cover situations you need to practice both alone and with your family. Bugging In First we can look at bugging in situations. When you make the decision to lock down, …

One knot every survivalist should know – The Trucker Hitch

TRUCKER HITCH:  Step-by-Step Tutorial + Video! The Trucker Hitch is an impressive knot that is comprised of two very basic knots.  The name comes from its use in the transportation industry when tying and securing heavy loads.  It can be used to tie down a load using rope with crushing force.  It is the ratcheting strap of the knot world.  I use the Trucker Hitch to secure my kayak to the roof rack on my truck.  In survival, I primarily use it when setting a rope shelter ridgeline or when sleeping in a hammock.  However, it is extremely useful, whenever the need may arise, to stretch a rope very tightly between or across two anchor points.  While …

The Vehicle as Terror Weapon

vehicular terror   In these days of Pokemon Go and other smartphone distractions, you’re seeing more and more people oblivious of their surroundings. In the past, this might get you a bump on the head by walking into a lamp post. In today’s world, however, it could cost you your life. As an Anglophile, I have often visited London and walked from my hotel to parliament and other sites via the Westminster bridge. Today, on the anniversary of the terrorist attack in Belgium, someone used a vehicle to mow down pedestrians on the bridge and then, apparently, left the car to continue a rampage that has left a number of casualties in …

Close Up Footage of Man with Hungry Polar Bear

In a truly frightening moment, a large female polar bear came face to face with a BBC camera man. While the bear seems initially curious, it becomes apparent she has intentions to eat the camera man. After all, BBC camera men are probably easier to kill and eat than seals. During the ordeal, the camera man sits in a large apparatus of metal and glass. Despite the best efforts of the hungry bear, the camera man’s shell remains intact. Larger female polar bears can reach up to 1,000 pounds. Even a small polar bear would have no problem mauling a grown man. The idea of sitting in a glass apparatus while a hungry polar bear…

Ambellas Warns: “There Is A Secret Sinister Shadow Government Running Behind The Scenes… They Are Not Going To Stop”

The Deep State, or whatever you want to call the shadow government attempting to control the puppet strings behind the scenes, appears to be moving forward with their agenda at full steam. From geopolitical conflict and financial manipulations to silencing “extremist” speech across the internet and supplanting the Constitution, they are desperately trying to maintain the narrative in an ever expanding information war. As Shepard Ambellas of Intellihub warns in a recent alert, they will never back off: “They are not going to stop,” Shep said. “They are doing everything in their power to keep that information from coming out and they want to regain control because see they’ve lost control.” “As Obama was exiting he got together …

Who Was Our First President? No, Really.

President John Hanson It’s Presidents’ Day in the U.S., and we celebrate the 44 men who have held the office, beginning with George Washington.  However, was George Washington really the first President?  Seems like the simplest question that even a child could answer, but it’s not exactly as clear-cut as you’d think. (As an aside, Donald Trump is the 45th president, but the 44rd man to hold the office, as Grover Cleveland’s two terms were not consecutive, making him both the 21st and 23rd President.) The United States declared its independence in 1776, but George Washington didn’t take office until 1789!  So who was in charge of running  …
