How to Erase Data Facebook Collects About You

 A vital security measure you should have in place if you use Facebook or any app associated with the social networking behemoth.

Basically, after facing criticism over privacy and data breaches, Facebook created a privacy tool called Off-Facebook Activity, which gives users more control of their data collected by the company.

In other words, this is information Facebook has collected about you from other websites, information that can contain more personal information than you ever want to share.

So, here is how you delete this information from Facebook:

To access Off-Facebook Activity tool:

· Go to “Settings & Privacy” in your Facebook app, then select “Settings”

· Select “Off-Facebook Activity.” On the next screen, you are provided with a list of all the websites and apps that have shared your data with Facebook.

· Select “Clear History” to remove all the information collected about you from other websites.

However, by clearing the history you may be logged out of certain websites where you have used your Facebook login.

In this same section of Facebook settings, you can download activity details by clicking on the number of interactions and clicking Download Activity Details at the bottom of the popup.

Of course, this feature won’t stop websites from collecting data about you, however, by clearing the history you can disassociate your Facebook account from other websites.

When it comes to advertising, websites love to get your Facebook information because it contains so many personal details, but this simple step will help reduce the sharing of your personal information if you clear the history often.

(Or, like me, just don’t use Facebook at all.)


At the Event 201 simulation, held in New York last October, a coronavirus killed 65 million people.

15 experts with varying backgrounds -- from business, government, and health -- sat around a table to plan the global response to a worldwide outbreak of a freakishly unprecedented -- coronavirus.

The event was put on through a collaboration between the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, the World Economic Forum, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

And, strangely…

It was a training exercise with disturbing similarities to COVID-19 -- the Chinese virus that’s gone global.

During the simulation, the virus, called CAPS, infected people all across the globe within six months…

And by 18 months, despite their best efforts to contain it, it had killed 65 million people and caused a total global financial collapse.
How to Prepare For Coronavirus (Plus, Should You Freak Out?) 

After hours upon hours of sifting through research…

We’ve found the best “short-list” for you.

To his credit, Mike Cernovich has written the most level-headed “prepper” piece on the coronavirus.

You can 
check it out here.

The short version, to give you an idea of the bare-bones essentials:
Food list

  • 50 pound bag of dry rice for every 3 people
  • 20 pound bag of dried lentil
  • 50 gallons of water
  • Spices for cooking
  • Coconut oil
  • Good flashlight

·         With this rapidly evolving outbreak, the CDC has done its best to stay in control of the rhetoric of keeping the public informed. Their main focus was to stay cautiously alert and keep the public calm, but as of today, they have significantly shifted their official statement and there is no denying the fact that coronavirus will come to communities in the U.S.

·         “Ultimately, we expect we will see community spread in the United States,” Nancy Messonnier, a top official at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told reporters. “It’s not a question of if this will happen but when this will happen and how many people in this country will have severe illnesses.” (Source)

Steel River Emergency Go Bag-21 Items Included+Bonus Book

Amazing number of useful, life-saving items included…LAST ONE!

Yours in Freedom,

Bruce ‘the PoorMan’




The human race has been bugging out for thousands of years. History is filled with stories of entire civilizations abandoning their homelands due to wars, pandemics, and natural disasters. It’s nothing new, and neither are the natural and manmade disasters that plague us to this day.

 We live in a time when the continent of Australia is literally on fire, when wars are measured in decades rather than years, and when rogue countries are ruled by the rage of animal instinct. If that doesn't motivate you to build a bug out bag, nothing will.

Perhaps the most critical consideration for any evacuation is the duration. If you’re evacuating for a short period of time due to a natural disaster, your bug out preparations could be as simple as a 72-hour kit, as FEMA calls it. If the duration is long-term, everything gets more complicated, especially if it's a manmade disaster like war, terrorism, or economic collapse... 

Question motive before I accept “evidence”

My profession is active deception through selective manipulative and misdirection.

When I want to convince someone of a lie for my benefit, I use psychological tools, magician-like skills of illusion, misdirection and substitution, and the power of persuasion.

I infuse my falsifications into descriptions, I refer to non-existent ‘facts’ as though there were universally accepted truths, and I employ reliance and veracity based on untrue references to someone or some belief that they hold as a high authority.

"If it bleeds, it leads," - this is the stereotype for media news; they love stirring up the panic pot AND if they can somehow lie & say it's all Trump's fault, all the better. That jackass Chuck Schumer quickly whined that Trump didn't ask for enough cash to 'fight' the virus-well Chucky, that was an initial request and it's not as if our CDC et al is broke...beside, why didn't you initiate the request yourself? Oh that's right, you're a do-nothing Dem.

Like you, I stopped using fb a long time ago-don't need it, don't want it.

The media is over hyping [often in an unfounded negative light toward Trump] the virus threat in the US. Trump's health team is apparently staying on top of things but like all good preppers, we remain vigilant. My wife stopped at Revco & inquired about face masks, etc.-all sold out! Good to see others taking precautions and thankfully, we stocked up on such items many moon ago! That's why we follow the Boy Scout mantra of 'be prepared' and we rely on your site to get current info on these topics-THANKS!
