Supplies-Resources You Will Need to Stockpile+DIY Sanitizer

Consider the following:

  • It is now illegal to attempt to go to church in some states.

  • Social activities are closed down completely. Heck, even gatherings of more than 10 people are forbidden in some states.

  • You’re not supposed to even leave your house except for trips to the grocery store, bank, or doctor. I believe in some areas, you are permitted to do one exercise-based activity outside of your home.

This doesn’t sound like America. This sounds like outright communism. Consider this:

“Unrestricted Warfare” the Chinese strategy to counter U.S. power- (translated by CIA ) lists Financial Warfare as a top strategy to achieve their 21st Century agenda of replacing the USA as top dog in the world.

Something is not adding up in my book [more on this once I complete my personal analysis]

 I have come to know that coincidences are extremely rare. And that when significant events occur immediately pursuant to a “fluke of coincidences,” something is not as someone wants to make it appear.

Wuhan city in Hubei province has a Level 4 biohazard research facility publicly known to be researching coronaviruses.

 Chinese authorities were so fast to offer the story that the disease originated in the nearby animal market that experienced observers could see the “It wasn’t me, it was him” defense even before any allegations were levied. We see guilty criminals use this frequently. They know that the crime is evident and that they are at the center of the crime and their first response is to blame a third party even before they are accused.

China has an active biological warfare program designed to decimate populations while leaving critical infrastructure unaffected. That program research is active at the Chinese national lab in Wuhan. We don’t yet know whether the deadly, highly infectious virus escaped, was tested or was absconded with for nefarious sale to a foreign power or ultra-wealthy individual.

What I am observing in the pattern of information releases, obfuscation of origin, misrepresentation of numbers and successful misdirection of crafted narratives, compared with the observable facts, proves to me that there is an active effort to conceal, mislead and perpetrate a lethal con on everyone who is not in the inner circles.

Compare the reported infection rate in China with the measurable infection rate occurring elsewhere in the world. And consider the global economic impact of 60% of the workforce not showing up to work for a month or two.

Use your own life’s experiences, personal powers of discernment and gut instincts to decide for yourself. But whatever you determine to be the truth about this horrendous event, make sure that you consider the worst-case scenario. Your life and the lives of your loved ones depend on your judgments, decisions and actions in the coming weeks and months.


Don't get caught off guard during a lengthy quarantine or natural disasters. Preparation is, as usual, the absolute key...


Stockpiling-Always a Smart Move

Just yesterday, one reader was worried about living in a major city. He wanted a “bug out” place to go to so he didn’t end up surrounded by thousands of sick people. This is not a bad idea at all — as long as he has the supplies to hunker down. I told him he needs to prepare for a crisis scenario where you have to hunker down for at least 90 days. This means 100% self-reliance — no trips to the grocery store during this time.

The fellow I was talking to understood water storage and getting the stackable bricks or 55-gallon drums. But he specifically wanted to know about food storage. I’ll share with you what I told him… The vast majority of my food storage is in No. 10 cans that can last 25 years or more. I do use my food storage and replenish it, so I know what it tastes like and that I’ll actually eat it.


White wheat, potato flakes, nonfat dry milk, refried beans, great northern beans, dehydrated onions, macaroni, spaghetti, white flour, hard red wheat, apple slices, white rice. I’ve got plenty of other food too, so my family won’t have any issues if we did have to hunker down for 90 days or more. We also have a bug out location. Just make sure that whatever you do, your family won’t skip a beat if you had to hunker down for a 90-day period.

Let me give you some other items I recommend stockpiling. They’re invaluable in a crisis as they’ll enable you to survive — but they can also be used for trade, too. Clean water and filters. Water is critical for survival, which is why I recommend storing at least 30 days’ worth of clean drinking water in your home. In addition, I encourage everyone to have a quality water filter such as the SurvFilter. But don’t stop at one — you should have multiple water filters to use as barter, because a water filter could easily be worth its weight in gold.

Antibiotics.  During a survival situation, a $20 bottle of antibiotics could become incredibly valuable if all pharmacies are looted or closed. So it’s a good idea to have a stockpile…

Fire starters. In an emergency situation, the ability to build a fire is critical for cooking and warmth. For this reason, I recommend stockpiling matches, lighters, flint, firewood and other DIY ways to help start a fire and keep it going. Don't forget you can also use a fire to signal your location if you need help. One thing I stockpile that doesn’t cost any money is dryer lint because it's a great way to get a fire going. Weapons and ammo. There is no question a firearm should be part of your survival gear. Of course, the firearm is useless if you don't have the right ammo. I suggest stockpiling at least 1,000 rounds of ammo for every caliber of gun you own. I also recommend storing extras of the most common calibers, such as .22, .22 LR, .223, .308, 9 mm and 12-gauge shells.

Of course, the key if you decide to trade ammo or firearms during a survival situation is to make sure they won’t be used against you. Fuel. After a disaster, “black gold” will quickly become a hot commodity. I don’t just mean gasoline. Store extra propane along with other types of fuel (including wood and batteries, even solar panels) that can be used in a survival situation. Fuel can be very valuable since most people will need some way to cook and keep their family warm.

A hat off to Jason Hanson for much of this!



DIY Hand Sanitizer Recipe

 Hand sanitizer is just 60-70% ethanol with moisturizers — so it’s not hard to make your own.

Ingredients Ethanol: The ethanol you want to use is 95% non-denatured ethanol (this has toxic additives to prevent drinking and will have a health hazard logo on the container). or Isopropanol: You can substitute 99-100% isopropanol (rubbing alcohol) for ethanol as it is just as effective as a disinfectant — it simply takes longer to evaporate. plus Aloe vera gel: This is an ideal moisturizer and many home recipes suggest it (but it can be hard to find). or Glycerol: This also works as a moisturizer and is a common ingredient in makeup.

Lin Lab Recipe -Mix two parts 95% non-denatured ethanol or 99-100% isopropanol with 1 part 90-100% glycerol or Aloe vera gel.


Secretary of State Pompeo has just ordered all Americans to urgently return home, in anticipation of something big that's about to go down.

High-level Pentagon staffers have been ordered into NORAD underground military complexes in Colorado. And it's starting to appear that the US government realizes China engaged in an act of international biological warfare by releasing the coronavirus.

Also today: Over 2,000 deaths are expected to occur in the USA every day by mid-April.


With the massive 2 trillion relief package added to our national debt, it’s time to consider shrinking government costs by eliminating such departments as the ATF, Education Dept [no need for 51 such agencies] & others.

I've read you blog for over 10 years & like you, our family is well supplied...we didn't need to raid the supermarket for TP thankfully. Although we had several containers of hand sanitizer on hand, the recipe you provided will prove useful-a big thank you!
