I’ve written about the threat China poses to our nation for many years now. Long time readers know this. Too many in Congress have wasted time and money with three-ring circuses and clueless investigations when they should focus on our real enemies, namely CHINA! I called out former President Clinton for giving away technology to the Chinese and few in the media or among our elected leaders ever raised a warning flag because they are seemingly clueless. Only two leaders to my knowledge have publicly warned America about the danger China poses: President Trump and Sen. Mark Rubio.

NOTES: China now has the largest merchant marine fleet in the world, surpassing the United States and Great Britain. China has made major military advancements and developed new weapons and improved its ability to wage war over places such as Taiwan [Source: US Defense Intelligence Bulletin]…The Chinese People’s Liberation Army is boosting the size of its navy and air force [it now has stealth fighter aircraft] to assert greater control over the South China Sea while the US Navy appears to be retreating from the area…its expansion will soon enable China to block the US and Britain out of not just the Asian sea gates the once controlled, but even those the lie thousands of miles of miles from China.
China expanding its influence
China will continue to increase its naval presence and operations around the world to help protect global interests and supply routes back to China. This strategy also moves beyond South China Sea territory as China continues to offer loans and lease agreements to countries for access to ports and harbours around the world.
Closer bilateral and multi-lateral naval relationships between China and rival claimants to the South China Sea disputes are expected. This will take place against the backdrop of growing dependence on Chinese naval weapon manufacturers, and prevailing uncertainty over the US security commitment abroad.
China is also attempting to overtake advanced countries across a number of sectors. For example, China is overtaking Russia in most aspects of aerospace development with J-31 combat aircraft, space exploration, cheap unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) and carrier operations.

Free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom!
We self-reliant types spend a significant portion of our lives prepping for a long-term disaster in one way or another. We grow our own groceries, cultivate backyard apothecaries, hone our shooting skills, preserve the garden harvest, hunt, fish, and harden our bug in or bug out locations. But how many of us have really thought about what daily life will be like during a long-term disaster?
Sure, we all know grocery store shelves will be empty with hours (not days, like FEMA claims), calling 911 for help will not be an option, and the unprepared will panic, leading to the development of marauding hordes.
All of that will happen within hours to a few days after the end of the world as we know it - TEOTWAKI. Have you thought long and hard about what life will be like in the weeks, months, and possibly years that unfold after the incident that sparks the long-term disaster...?
There’s an old proverb that says not to put all your eggs in one basket. When it comes to storing survival supplies, this proverb rings true. By keeping all of your supplies inside your home (or at any one location) you are setting yourself up for disaster.
This is where survival caches come in. Coming from the French word for “hide”, a cache is a setup that allows you to hide some supplies in a separate location. There’s a lot of strategy that goes into choosing where to put a survival cache and what to put in it.
On the one hand, you want your survival cache to be difficult to find so it's not discovered and stolen. On the other hand, your survival cache needs to be easily accessible, especially if you plan on accessing it during a bug out scenario...
Here’s my idea for a new bill [s] to improve government…
>Since term limits never seems to gain any traction perhaps we should entertain the idea of zero pay for elected officials after their third term in office…give them their office, expenses, health insurance while in office and a living allowance only=much like our Founding Fathers and see how many decide to remain in office.
>Perhaps we need to resurrect a new version of ‘war’ bonds, perhaps calling them “government bailout bonds” to help pay off our national debt and/or to help pay for our massive deficits and proposed new spending projects since fewer foreign nations are buying our debt!
>An idea I've suggested before: Eliminate ALL city/state & Federal taxes on the 1st $25K of income for all people. 41% of citizens pay no Federal tax, many city/state taxes are killers for many. Tax laws that encourage more US manufacturing/jobs & elimination of red tape would help too.
Yours for a more secure future,
