The Fear Factor

The media frenzy over the economy and the coronavirus have frightened everyone in America on a level almost no one alive has seen.

I realize fear is used to control people; it’s an age-old system of creating additional laws which stifle freedom.  

Privately owned businesses "ordered" closed (can you imagine? In America?)... A plummeting stock market... 10 million Americans filing for unemployment... shelter-in-place orders...

Government — which millions of propagandized Americans have begged to take over every aspect of their lives — has shut down their lives. Your life…

Back in 2014 during the Ebola scare, I published an article warning about how a global pandemic could be used by the elites as cover for the implementation of an economic collapse as well as martial law measures in western nations. My immediate concern was the way in which a viral outbreak could be created or exploited as a rationale for social control that the public would never accept under normal circumstances. And this could be any viral outbreak, not just Ebola. The point is the creation of an "invisible enemy" that the populace cannot quantify and defend itself against without constant government oversight…


 We have enough reasons to be angry at our "leaders"....


We should have had a much higher state of readiness to face this pandemic -- it was a certainty that sooner or later, one of this magnitude would hit. So faced as we've been with medical supply shortages, botched mobilization efforts, and contradictory/harmful official guidance  -- it's inexcusable. But just as maddening is the predictable outcome we're seeing with governments' response to the economic crisis triggered by covid-19. In short, as happened in 2008, those who created the economic instability in the first place, by looting and abusing the system, are being bailed out -- generously. And the tab is being picked up by the taxpayer.


Americans far more worried about loss of income than health during pandemic, poll finds

Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen shows 30% ranked 'loss of income' as their top concern during coronavirus, compared to just 4% choosing 'loss of health.'




Federal and State Agencies Advise
You Get Emergency Radio!

Picture This Very REAL Scenario:
A shortage of fuel has closed your electric utility — or any one of several natural or man-made disasters has just devastated your town, power is out all over the city with no signs of being restored, floodwaters lap at your doorstep, and you and your family are completely cut off from all human contact  . . . 

Are You Prepared?
How will you know if and when you need to evacuate? Is the water from your tap safe to drink? Which shelters are still taking families? Where do you go? What do you do?

Staying informed could be a matter of life and death.

That’s why federal and state agencies advise that every American home should have an emergency radio.

Be Prepared in Any Circumstance!
If your electric power fails due to a massive health epidemic, storms, flash floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes or even the ever-present threat of terrorism, you need an emergency radio that WORKS in a REAL emergency.

The Dynamo Emergency Weather Band Radio is the device you can depend on.

Yours for a Socialist-Free America!

There are many different survival skills that could prove invaluable in a disaster scenario. Some of these skills–such as marksmanship or the ability to preserve food–receive a lot of attention, while others often fly under the radar.

 Nevertheless, these skills are each incredibly valuable in their own right, and some of them may prove just as important as the more popular skills.

 Below are nine commonly overlooked survival skills that deserve a little more recognition. How many of them do you have..?

While there are plenty of emergency food options out there, not all of them are healthy from a nutrition standpoint. From pre-packaged kits to MREs, the sodium content alone can cause more health concerns over a long period of time.

Add to that the hard-to-pronounce ingredients in many store-bought food options, and you could be doing more harm to your family in a crisis.
