EMP Attack and Solar Storms, Part II: Cascading Failures and Nuclear Meltdown

Posted on Jun 27, 2013 in Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Featured Articles, Science & Technology

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Some time ago, we discussed the broad implications of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack, such as that from an aerial detonation of a nuclear device, and the similar effects of a large solar storm or coronal mass ejection from the sun.  In that discussion, we looked at the overall aspects of the crisis, including interruptions to our trucking industry, which in turn would represent a massive failure in our food, health, and fuel delivery systems.  Other topics included traffic gridlock, potential vehicle failure, and briefly, what to expect after the lights go out.

In Part II of this guide, we will dive into a more technical look at what even the most minor of electrical hiccups and disturbances can do to our delicate, computerized world, as well as explore how interconnected our society truly is.  However, in order to adequately set the stage for understanding the grave threat under conditions in which all of our infrastructures fall prey to simultaneous failure, it is imperative to understand that the “vulnerability of the whole — of all the highly interlocked critical infrastructures — may be greater than the sum of the vulnerability of its parts.” (1)

If a singular system goes down, it can result in a cascade of failures across the spectrum, from communications, to banking, to government services, and even water treatment and sanitation. ...

Monsanto Sponsors Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®: Partners in Bio-Tech Terrorism

Posted on Jun 15, 2013 in Featured Articles, Health, Food News, & Big Pharma

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

On a beautiful morning in St. Louis, MO, thousands of race participants gathered at the starting line of the Susan G. Koman Foundation’s Race for the Cure® 5k Run.

Buried among the many tents and booths offering health literature and pink merchandise, we found an interesting sponsor: Monsanto Company Inc. Yes, the world’s biggest bio-tech terrorist and their “Fun Squad” is a sponsor of the breast cancer fundraising run.

For 30 years now, the Susan G. Komen Foundation has held a prestigious place in the forefront of the “cancer research community”, as well as essentially owning the pink ribbon concept. Their stated mission is a world without breast cancer, and in particular, the “Susan G. Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure® raises funds for the local fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivorship, and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.”

On a national level, the Susan G. Komen Foundation raked in $342,373,526 in fiscal year 2012, and according to Charity Navigator.com, paid the current CEO, Nancy Brinker, a whopping $684,717 in salary – which doesn’t even count her bonuses....

Gunfighters, Gear, and Instagram: the IG Militia

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Instagram is a form of social media that focuses on sharing pictures between users, allowing them to tag photos with names of other users and apply “hashtags” that function as searchable keywords or descriptions for others. It is no longer just a place to post pictures of your food!

One such hashtag that has a rather large following is #igMilitia. It stands for the InstaGram Militia, and started as a way for various photos of guns, gear, and generally tacti-cool stuff to be lumped together and easily found.

Since I’m always looking for new gear when it comes to firearms, outdoor activities, and training, I thought I would share a list of some of the small businesses and personalities that really seem to have an impact on the shooting community and “igMilitia”, whether it be tactical, law enforcement, military, or purely civilian and self defense.

Many of these you’ve likely never heard of, but I believe in supporting original entrepreneurs and small start-ups, so if you know of any others that should be added to this list, please feel free to leave a comment!...

An EMP, or Electro Magnetic Pulse, is generated from the detonation of a nuclear device or quite possibly, extreme solar activity, such as that which was experienced in 1859, 1989, and as recent as 1994.  The US Government and military have studied these phenomenon extensively and several reports have been issued regarding EMP effects on vehicles, computer networks, critical infrastructure, and more.  In this report, we’ll cover many of the topics discussed and researched in regards to geomagnetic anomalies, solar storm activity, and the effects of an electromagnetic pulse.  It should be noted, however, that Congress has largely ignored the EMP Commission’s warnings and our hospitals, trucking industry, and critical infrastructure remain highly vulnerable.

In the late summer of 1859, a great solar storm hit the planet. This storm was the product of a coronal mass ejection from the Sun. While the science and physics behind these coronal ejections is interesting, it can also be long winded for some readers so I’ll keep this brief....

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

One of my biggest passions is alternative architecture and radical self-reliance.  I try to showcase it regularly here on TruthisTreason.net, but it’s been awhile since I have posted a good collection of projects.  So, without further ado, here are a few abodes that have caught my eye recently!

Bootjack Cabin

The story of a young couple building a modern cabin off the grid in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

We are Caleb and Marci Larsen. We met in art school and got married in 2003. In the past eight years we’ve lived in Kalamazoo, MI, Portland, ME, Seattle, WA, Providence, RI, Tulum, Mexico, Hancock, MI, and now, Calumet, MI. This nomadic lifestyle has mostly been for fun, to experience different cities and parts of the world.

We’ve decided to build a cabin (‘camp’ in local parlance) and will be blogging about the experience. From our inspirations, plans, triumphs, to our failures, frustrations, and utter devastations – this is our return to Bootjack.

Orcas Island Cabin

Design by Vandervort Architects

Hayden’s Note: 

I couldn’t find much information regarding this particular cabin, other than basic dimensions and such from Vandervort Architects.  ...

Prepping Tactics: Moving by Vehicle in High Threat Environments

The intent of this article is to act as an introduction with some thoughts and primers for moving your family or group in high threat environments. It is not intended to give all the answers and that would be beyond the scope of this short piece. The type of environment envisioned is a post-collapse situation where there has been a breakdown in law and order. To clarify, this article is not concerned with the sort of ‘bug-out’ movement that families may conduct in response to a localized natural disaster, where you have to get in your car with some basic equipment and move out of the impacted area. Rather, this is directed at those who find they have to move locations after a significant societal collapse has happened.

Hayden’s Note:

This is a lengthy article, but contains some really great information you might not have thought of. This is certainly one of those articles you’ll want to print out, re-read, train on, and file. Full disclosure: I am currently reviewing Max’s new book, Contact!: A Tactical Manual for Post Collapse Survival.

Death of the US Dollar Hegemony: Military Intervention, Oil Sales, and the Inevitable Collapse

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

According to a recent report by Indy Media, Mexican crude oil will be sold to China without using the US dollar as its trading currency.  Sources inside the Mexican government refuse to disclose if they have been in secret negotiations with China over possible crude oil sales.

If you’re not familiar with the term petrodollar, or why a move such as this by China, Mexico, or Russia is of grave concern, allow me to give you a few points to consider and explain the situation -

In 1975, the members of OPEC agreed to sell oil only in US dollars.  This was for a variety of reasons, but chief among them was to maintain a need for US currency and maintain its reign as the global reserve.  Without this in America’s backpocket, I’m sure that the Dollar would have even less value, to put it mildly.

Greenspan, in his first speech after leaving as Chairman of the Fed, said that gold prices were up because of concern about terrorism, and not because of monetary concerns or because he created too many dollars during his tenure.

In times of uncertainty, we humans like to stockpile and hoard.  We seek information that will keep us safe and provide for our well-being.  One of these topics will invariably center around medical knowledge or first-aid in case of an accident, sickness, or injury.  Many of us already have a well-rounded medical kit, or basic skills in how to treat traumatic injuries.  But one question I see and hear a lot of people talk about is medicine, and their lack of concrete, factual information when it comes to antibiotics – and specifically, whether it is safe to use animal antibiotics in humans.

Many other questions typically revolve around,

“Where can I find prescription-quality medicines?”

“My doctor won’t prescribe me common antibiotics for long-term disasters or bugging out.”

“What medicines should I stockpile?”

What this article will attempt to provide is the answer to these very questions, and more.  While I am no fan of Big Pharma, I  understand the amazing capabilities and modern need for some medicines, such as Doxycycline, Amoxicillin, and Penicillin.  There are many natural antibiotics, and antibacterials, in nature.  ...

pH Levels and Cancer, Alkaline and Acidic Foods

Posted on Feb 26, 2012 in Featured Articles, Health, Food News, & Big Pharma

The human body is an amazing machine. One of the most important functions of this vessel is its ability to regulate its own acidity levels to a very fine degree.  Cells will only function normally within relatively narrow limits of pH.  The body regulates its pH by constantly adjusting physiological processes, such as kidney and lung function.

However, the foods you eat can play a role in increasing or decreasing body pH, and some foods can be more alkalizing than others. An acidic body is a magnet for sickness, disease, cancer, and aging.  Eating more alkaline foods helps shift your body’s pH and oxygenates your system, keeping your body healthy and functioning correctly, preventing cancer, among many other diseases.

Definition

pH, or “potential hydrogen,” is a measure of hydrogen ion concentration; a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution.

When a solution is alkaline, or has alkalinity, it means it has the ability to neutralize acids. Alkalinity is expressed as a pH number, on a scale of 0 to 14. ...

Like so many generations before, it was my father who first taught me about tools as I was growing up.  The names of the tools, their uses, how to properly care for them, and what not to do so I could avoid injury were all part of the lessons he ingrained in me.  Early in my adult life, I spent eight years in the military repairing fixed-wing jet aircraft and later, helicopters.  After my time in service was over, I spent several years working in the emergency services sector, including wild land fire fighting and emergency management.  Tools have been a big part of my ability to earn a living and play a vital role in my prepping, my ability to rebuild infrastructure after a disaster, gardening, and homesteading.

Hayden’s Note:

I talk many times on TruthisTreason.net about investing in tangibles for both wealth protection and bartering.  Quality tools are an integral part of those “tangibles.”  Read on to learn which ones you need!

37 Reasons to Avoid Genetically Modified Foods Thumbnail

37 Reasons to Avoid Genetically Modified Foods

Posted on Jan 31, 2012 in Featured Articles, Health, Food News, & Big Pharma

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

The adulteration and modification of some of the planet’s most widely used crops has changed our food landscape.  Chemicals, preservatives, genetic modification and low-cost substitutions and fillers have wrecked meals that were once healthy for us.  Stepping inside of a grocery store nowadays, we find ourselves in a dangerous and toxic new world.  The introduction of genetically modified organisms into the food supply in the 1990′s, coupled with rampant use of carcinogens such as aspartame, and substitutions like high fructose corn syrup, set the perfect stage to form a deadly concoction known as processed food.  Sadly, this is what encompasses the average American diet.

Genetically modified foods are now found in approximately 80% of all food in a typical grocery store.

What Exactly is a GMO?

A GMO, or genetically modified organism, is the result of a laboratory process of taking genes from one species and inserting them into another in an attempt to obtain a desired trait or characteristic, hence they are also known as transgenic organisms. This process may be called either Genetic Engineering (GE) or Genetic Modification (GM); they are one and the same....

Urban Survival Post-SHTF: a How-to Guide and Rural Comparison

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

During a societal collapse or SHTF scenario, is living in an urban environment a safe and prudent option?

Let’s dive into a few of the aspects and dangers of the cityscape, what to expect, and how you might mitigate some of the threat as you either escape from the concrete jungle or try to ride it out.  This does not apply for short, temporary natural disasters; rather, this will examine a potential economic meltdown, long-term survival situation, possible military action, or perhaps an electromagnetic event of some order that brings down the grid.

Living within a major metropolitan area has its ups and down, its benefits and drawbacks. This applies to any decent sized urban area as they all typically have common systems, such as municipal water and sewage, fragile electrical grids that in many cases provide the power for heating your home and cooking, and finally – people.

Large population centers can be your worst nightmare in a survival situation, as witnessed during Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent social collapse that occurred in New Orleans....

Thanks to “just in time” inventory practices, America has an average of just three days of food on its grocery shelves. Inventories are kept extremely well managed and tight thanks to the amazing efficiency of modern day transportation and manufacturing systems.  Depending on your age, you might remember when grocery stores had excess stock and inventory in the “back room.”  Those days are long gone.  If the “just in time” trucks stop rolling for any reason, your local grocery store will be empty within days and that’s even in good times!

If a disaster were to strike – natural or manmade – you could expect those shelves to be bare within hours.  The recent blizzards and snowstorms blanketing the United States are a perfect example of why it pays to be prepared.  When you watch the news and the weatherman says a life-threatening cold front is coming your direction with 15″ of snow, or a hurricane is forming, do you:

  • a) rush to the grocery store to make sure you have enough beer, hotdogs and Doritos?

1 Million Pounds of Organic Food on Only 3 Acres Using Aquaponics

Posted on Nov 17, 2011 in DIY Projects, Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Featured Articles, Urban Gardening, Farming & Homesteading

Will Allen, the co-founder of this amazing initiative, called Growing Power, believes, “If people can grow safe, healthy, affordable food… if they have access to land and clean water, this is transformative on every level in a community.  I believe we cannot have healthy communities without a healthy food system.”

Their goal is a simple one: to grow food, to grow minds, and to grow community.

So how do they do it?

  • By producing 10,000 fish,
  • Using 300 to 500 yards of worm compost,
  • By utilizing vertical space,
  • Having 3 acres of land in green houses,
  • Using 1 simple aquaponic pump,
  • Food is grown all year by using heat from the compost piles,
  • A packed greenhouse produces a crop value of $5 Square Foot! ($200,000/acre).
  • Total food supply approximately 1,000,000 pounds per year!

Can you imagine if places like this started popping up all over the world? It would be one giant step towards self-reliance. Food self-sufficiency is a major step towards being sovereign.

The urban farm currently includes:

  • six traditional greenhouses growing over 15,000 pots of herbs, salad mix, beet greens, arugula, mustards, seedlings, sunflower and radish sprouts.  
  • ...
