The War on Self-Reliance
We are on our own.
The biggest trend I see over the last 70 years is the complete abandonment of self-reliance.
If you run the clock back to your father or grandfather’s time, most people did most things themselves. I’m talking about oil changes, taxes, preserving food, etc.
Today, the US is a nation of people desperate for the government or someone else to fix their problems.
I was truly shocked to see even hardened conservatives and others who claim to believe in conservative principles happily accepting when the government told them they couldn’t go to church, or visit family or friends, that they had to wear a mask, and more.
Even more astonishing was to see so many talking heads and pundits who claim to be “anti-debt” or “fiscal conservatives” applauding the Federal Reserve’s decision to bail out companies that had spent all of their cash on buybacks or other things designed to boost executive compensation.
And everyone was fine with this as long as Uncle Sam wrote them a check for $1,200!?!?
If you’re going to sell out your principles and beliefs wouldn’t you at least ask for a LARGE amount of money, say $1 million!?!?
It’s sickening.
For this reason, I am stating the obvious. We are on our own today.
If you want to get ahead in the US… improve your lot in life… make a better future for your children and grandchildren… it’s 100% on your shoulders to do it. No one is going to help make it happen.
No one in history got wealthy from stimulus checks or welfare. 
No one in history got healthy from eating junk food.
No one in history got successful from sitting on their rear ends.
Again, we are on our own.
On the one hand, this is frightening. There are no real safety nets. There are no easy breaks. There are no free lunches.
But on the other hand, this is EXTREMELY empowering.
I don’t know about you, but I like certainty. And I like challenging myself. So when I know that I’m on my own in terms of making my dreams come true, I get excited.
This is true for everything in life… whether it’s fitness, health, or wealth.
Every day is a new beginning. It’s never too late to make a change. And once you realize that there are opportunities EVERYWHERE, you stop sitting still and you start looking.
As one of my mentors once told me: “Graham, there are incredible trades every single week. If you miss one, forget it and start looking for the next.”
I try to trade that way. And I try to live that way as well.
I urge you to do the same.
We’re on our own. And that is a GREAT thing.

This Fourth of July matters more than most. While hundreds of millions of people will celebrate the anniversary of our country’s independence, a small but vocal number of radicals are furiously trying to rewrite America’s past and replace America’s principles. 
It’s up to us to defend America from these attacks. We’d be wise to rely on the wisdom of previous generations.
The famous abolitionist 
Frederick Douglass directly refuted the argument that America’s ideals should be rejected. Speaking in 1852, he declared: “the Declaration of Independence is the ring-bolt to the chain of your nation’s destiny... the principles contained in that instrument are saving principles. Stand by those principles, be true to them on all occasions, in all places, against all foes, and at whatever cost.”
Decades later, on the 150th anniversary of the Declaration, President 
Calvin Coolidge made the same point: “It is often asserted that the world has made a great deal of progress since 1776,” he said, but the principles of America’s founding are timeless. “If anyone wishes to deny their truth or their soundness, the only direction in which he can proceed historically is not forward, but backward toward the time when there was no equality, no rights of the individual, no rule of the people. Those who wish to proceed in that direction can not lay claim to progress.”
America is the freest and most just country the world has ever seen. 
If we have the courage to apply our most cherished principles today, we will continue to work on the challenges we face and move America further down the path of equality and liberty for all.

It's finally starting to happen: Normal Americans are beginning to pick up rifles in defense against the lunatic left-wing terrorists and criminal insurrectionists who are trying to burn down this country and kill all Whites.
The Black Lives Terrorists are actively trying to destroy America, and they have escalated the situation into a civil war. Now, it's time for Americans to stand their ground, defend their nation and fight back to take down and defeat the terrorists who threaten us all.
Today we are calling for President Trump to grant nationwide permission for all armed Americans to engage and shoot domestic terrorists who are threatening our nation.
When you read about what to stockpile for an emergency, you tend to see the same recommendations. Water tops every list, and rightly so since water is essential for survival.
 In terms of food, however, rice, beans, pasta, and canned vegetables show up frequently as staples to have on hand. Then, you usually see powdered milk, granola bars, and other long-lasting foods. These are good options, but many other choices are often overlooked as survival foods.
 Here is a list of energy-rich foods that offer a long shelf life as well as nutrition that you will need in an emergency scenario...

One of the most important survival skills is the ability to take basic home items and use them for a survival situation. One of these items is WD-40, which can definitely fill the gap if you don’t have the right lubricant or other materials.
Did you know that there are over 2,000 uses for WD-40, as Sensible Prepper points out? Here are twenty-five of them that could be useful in a survival or grid-down scenario.
 1. Get rid of rust from tools (such as hammers) and drive the moisture out of the tool to keep moisture out...
