Thermal Imaging Scopes: Facts vs. Fiction

Most well planned modern attacks are likely to occur at night, under the cover of darkness making night vision critical for security. Thermal or digital imaging along with Gen I, II or III night vision are both necessary tools to have. However, each has their strengths and weaknesses. Click on the word night vision to learn more about the light intensification method of seeing in partial darkness and click HERE to read an excellent article on Thermal Vision which uses heat to see in total darkness but that also has its limits. 

Here are some links to good video's and pictures: Specifications tab - good table comparing models. Good pictures at different ranges.

The end of Free America

The US Government in its current form is almost 250 years old while the average government age of all the countries in the world is about 150 years old.  Many countries have been over thrown and gone through several different governments during this same time.

So for thousands of years, governments have risen up and countries have fallen. How could this possibly happen to the USA?

Suppose we elected a charismatic President of the United States that was secretly a Muslim Manchurian Candidate, with the intention of covertly destroying the US.

During his time in office, he does the following:
  1. Adds trillions of dollars to the national debt.
  2. Put expensive government programs in place (Affordable Care Act) to help break the US.
  3. Slowly allows thousands of military-aged Muslim male immigrants into the US that were not fully checked out. 
  4. Appoints Muslim colleagues to key government positions in the military, homeland security and NSA.
  5. Release multiple Muslim terrorists
  6. Give Iran, the largest supporter of terrorism and a country with some of the largest oil reserves and no need for nuclear power, a $150 Billion dollars, while they are developing "nuclear power" and launching missiles in violation of trade sanctions.
  7. Makes huge purchases of personal protection ammo (not target practice rounds) that are unprecedented in history.
  8. Stage military martial law drills in potentially hostile states (Jade Helm 15)
  9. Have the Pentagon prepare for mass civil unrest
  10. Over the years, police departments around the country get armed with armored vehicles, riot gear and machine-guns with high capacity magazines.  Then you decide that you many not be able to control all the local police departments and move to disarm them by stopping sales of excess military equipment to local and state police.
  11. The government buying up massive amounts of emergency food.
  12. You appoint a liberal "big government" Supreme Court Justice.  This is the single most harmful thing that can be done.
Once all this is in place, the president's Muslim organization commit terrorist attacks on early voting locations and then declare martial law and  "temporarily" suspend elections until it is safe.  This will drag on indefinitely or more accurately for ever.  This happened in Germany when Hitler, an elected leader, took over as a Dictator with the Reichstag Fire Decree, a response to a staged terrorist attack (like 911?).

The NSA has the address of everyone ordering guns or ammo and posting stuff on Facebook.  These unfortunate people will be the victims of night-time violence and disappear during the night like Hitler's opposition did with his feared SS.  They will take us down one at a time until there is no one brave enough to speak out.

An alternative, is to stage his own death at the hands of a white redneck live on TV and his last words are "rise up black brothers ... avenge my death"..... This country will erupt in to race violence like never before.  With 97% of the black voters voting for a Black President while about 50% of the whites voted for him and 50% voted against him (an even distribution), what does that tell you about racism?

Since the beginning of time, people have been predicting doom, the sky is falling... that never comes.  At the same time, people have been ignoring risks like Hitler and end up being caught by surprise. 

The Native Americans could have defeated the white man IF they had united and struck soon enough.  Instead, they waited and waited until the resistance was eliminated one by one.  When they finally recognized the seriousness of the threat.... it was too late.

So it doesn't hurt to take a few precautions, but what?  We must decide now that we will refuse to suspend or delay elections; if this is enforced, we must rise up in masses and vote anyway.

45 uses for Alcohol

It has been said that ethanol alcohol—the kind of alcohol that makes us drunk—was the first synthesized product that humans made. Originally made from honey, fruits, berries, grains, and other plants left in the sun to ferment, alcohol and its first use documented as far back as 10,000 B.C.

Historically, fermented beverages:
  • Acted as a substitution for water
  • Fixed nutritional deficiencies
  • Served medicinal purposes

Alcohol also had its place in religious ceremonies and even used as currency. Supposedly, vodka was an ingredient in early European gunpowder. And of course, people drank alcohol in order to become intoxicated.

When shopping for liquor, you will find two different numbers on the bottle. One is the percentage and one is the proof. The percentage is the amount of true ethanol alcohol content, while proof is the official government designation of how much alcohol content is in the beverage. Divide the proof in half to get the actual percentage of alcohol.

Use number six: Molotov cocktail for zombie and other hostile elimination.
The term proof comes from 18th century distillers. To prove the correct alcohol content in their distilled beverages, they added gunpowder. If it did not ignite, there was not enough alcohol. If it burned blue, they declared the alcohol 100 percent proof, or 50 percent ethanol alcohol.
Liquor has its place in a post-apocalyptic world even if you are a teetotaler. Stock up on cheap, high-alcohol content liquors and add it to your long-term food and gear storage. The best liquor for its many different purposes is Everclear. Everclear, made by Luxco, is pure grain alcohol. You can purchase Everclear in 95 percent alcohol content or 75.5 percent. The higher alcohol content is more popular and more effective for survival use. Everclear is illegal in Florida, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and banned in Chicago (of course.) If you live in a state that restricts the sale of Everclear, you may substitute high-proof vodka. Of course, after SHTF and no laws exist you can start moonshining.

If you choose an alcohol other than vodka or Everclear, such as whiskey or gin, purchase at least 70 proof or higher. This ensures the alcohol will burn.

To store alcohol—Everclear, vodka, whiskey, brandy, gin, or rum—purchase glass bottles. These liquors will store indefinitely in the right conditions. Keep your alcohol in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight. Keep the bottles upright and do not open them. Once opened, the liquid will evaporate and lose its flavor after six to eight months.

Here are 45 survival uses of alcohol

  1. Fire starter
  2. Barter and trade
  3. Alleviate boredom
  4. Calm anxiety
  5. Sleep aide
  6. Molotov cocktail
  7. Antiseptic for wounds
  8. Sterilize needles, tweezers and other instruments
  9. Disinfect questionable water
  10. Relieve poison ivy
  11. Kill odors
  12. Refresh clothing
  13. Bug repellent and killer
  14. Surface cleanser
  15. Anesthetic for tooth pain
  16. Lamp fuel
  17. Make herbal tinctures and elixirs
  18. Facial astringent and toner
  19. Topical treatment
  20. Clean skin before an injection
  21. Fuel for vehicles
  22. Stove fuel
  23. Gun cleaner
  24. Solvent
  25. Mouthwash
  26. Rust prevention
  27. Clean optic glass
  28. Clear congestion and sinuses
  29. Stop the itch of bug bites
  30. Fire accelerator
  31. Numbing agent
  32. Starter fluid for IC engines
  33. Hygienic soak for razor blades and brushes
  34. Weed killer
  35. Chemically cook food
  36. Deodorant
  37. Make perfume
  38. Clean electronics
  39. Kill mold
  40. Remove stains
  41. Dry wet clothing
  42. Break the bottle and use the glass shards as a weapons and cutting tool
  43. Cough suppressant (warmed whiskey mixed with honey and lemon works best)
  44. Help repopulate
  45. Muscle relaxer

US Poverty from a global perspective

Despite the oppressive Political Correctness disease that is sweeping our country (led by the main stream media), we are still blessed to live in a time of such abundance. Never in history has even royalty had the luxuries that most of us have today. Even Americans that live in so-called “Poverty” are well above the world’s average income level.

The worldwide median income is about $9,733 per household according to
or $808 per month.  The US Poverty level is $24,250 for a family of 4 according to which is $2020 per month.  In addition, they get earned income credit, food stamps, health care benefits and more, worth an estimated $1,000 per month.  So Americans in poverty live over 3 times better than the average citizen of the planet earth.  According to Euro News, 48% of the worlds wealth belongs to 1% of the population, which includes Americans in Poverty.

According to the Global Rich List,  ....a family of five living just above the poverty line in the US is actually “the one percent” compared to the rest of the world.

But as the planet becomes more globalized and socialized, the lower income citizens pay will increase and the higher ones like the US will decrease, moving closer to global parity. Countries with bigger governments and less capitalism will have lower than average life styles.

So for now, we should give thanks and protect our country.  While charity is good, we would not borrow money to provide for strangers, when our own children have needs.  This is what our country is doing when we bring in unskilled immigrants and let them get on welfare, food stamps and free health care.

How do we fix poverty?  We don't, it has been with us since the beginning of mankind and it will be with us from now on.  What we can fix however is insuring that everyone has an opportunity to get ahead by providing a better education that includes trades like construction, auto mechanics, plumbing, electrical, computer repair & programming and much more. Not everyone is going to be a doctor, lawyer or teacher, so we must train them so that a high school diploma means they have skills that will help them raise a family and send their kids to college.

Pandemic Preparations

Every 16 to 25 years, there is a pandemic that kills millions of people.  Most do not realize that we are currently in the middle of one of the largest pandemics in modern history.  That is the AIDS or HIV virus which has killed over 37 million people.  We don't realize this, because it kills slowly over 5 to 10 years rather than causing the victim to bleed out on the floor in a few days. But that is what makes a virus like this more dangerous.  The victims do not realize they have this virus for years and can transmit it to others for many more years.

You can prepare for a pandemic now. You should know both the magnitude of what can happen during a pandemic outbreak and what actions you can take to help lessen the impact of an influenza (virus) pandemic on you and your family. This checklist will help you gather the information and resources you may need in case of a flu pandemic.

Plan for a Pandemic
  • Store a two week supply of water and food. During a pandemic, if you cannot get to a store, or if stores are out of supplies, it will be important for you to have extra supplies on hand. This can be useful in other types of emergencies, such as power outages and disasters.
  • Periodically check your regular prescription drugs to ensure a continuous supply in your home.
  • Have any nonprescription drugs and other health supplies on hand, including pain relievers, stomach remedies, cough and cold medicines, fluids with electrolytes, and vitamins, especially vitamin C. Lysol mouthwash is also good to have and use regularly.
  • Have disinfectants like alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, bleach, Lysol, disinfecting hand cleaners, wipes and soaps. Disinfect frequently touched surfaces like door knobs and handles regularly.
  • Talk with family members and loved ones about how they would be cared for if they got sick, or what will be needed to care for them in your home.
  • Volunteer with local groups to prepare and assist with emergency response.
  • Get involved in your community as it works to prepare for an influenza pandemic 

During a Pandemic
  • Limit the Spread of Germs and Prevent Infection
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too. 
  • If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.  Quarantine new retreat arrivals for 7 days.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
  • Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Practice other good health habits. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.
