BPA & Canned Food: Uncontaminated Brands to Include in Your Preps

In July, 2012, the Food and Drug Administration finally decided to ban Bisphenol A (BPA) from bottles and sippy cups. They did that to simply boost consumer confidence, and that was about it.

BPA: Regulation at the Speed of Profit Decrease

People who track the progress of BPA regulation are the same people who like glacier racing as a spectator sport. In July, as you should know, the FDA finally banned BPA from baby drinking containers because the American Chemistry Council (the lobbyists who’ve kept BPA in our bodies all these years) decided they would voluntarily do the ban and so it would make a good show if it became an official rule. I’m not being cynical (this time), even the New York Times says that’s how it is. Hey, now that’s progress – it only took the FDA two years from the 2010 reversal of their previous “BPA is safe” mantra to get it out of sippy cups. Consumer safety at the speed of light, friends.

Hayden’s Note:

I talk about food, Big Pharma, FDA, and toxins such as BPA quite regularly here on Truth, so I wanted to post an article written by a great new website called SchemaByte.com.

Ham Radio Cheat Sheet – an InfoGraphic Thumbnail

Ham Radio Cheat Sheet – an InfoGraphic

Posted on Jan 06, 2013 in Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Science & Technology

It can be said that communication is one of the most important aspects of disaster contingencies.  It is relied upon by every facet of response, rescue, and recovery, but is often times damaged or hampered from the actual disaster.  Once the usual lines of communication go silent, many jurisdictions are left in the dark regarding critical decisions and fail to receive important updates because they have no back-up plans.  This is where amateur radio, often referred to as HAM radio, fills in the gap.

With the ability to broadcast from your home, vehicle, or on mobile units, and cover an incredibly large and diverse region rather inexpensively, ham radio should be on the forefront of your preparedness checklist.  It is also quite easy to power ham radio units with small solar panels for off-grid or remote communications. While there are various regulations concerning the use of the airwaves, one can obtain a license to become a radio operator for disaster preparedness, hobby, or recreation with just a small amount of studying and a brief written exam....

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....

Barter Economy: 50g Gold and Silver CombiBar Can Snap into 1g Micro Bars Thumbnail

Barter Economy: 50g Gold and Silver CombiBar Can Snap into 1g Micro Bars

Posted on Dec 25, 2012 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Economic News, Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Federal Reserve & Bankers

Valcambi sa, an international gold refiner and bar manufacturer based in Switzerland, has debuted their new CombiBar, a .999 gold or silver, credit card sized “bar” that can be broken into 1 gram increments for smaller transactions.

For those who invest in precious metals as a form of barter or alternative currency, the traditionally higher premiums on small gold bars are cost-prohibitive to many buyers, making silver much more attractive due to its lower cost per ounce and ease of use in transactions.

Gold is typically reserved for larger purchases or as a store of wealth, until now.  The CombiBar allows an investor to purchase 50 gram or 100 gram “bars” that can snap apart into individual, smaller “bars” or sheets.  The cards are available in .999 silver, palladium, and platinum!

It should be noted that like all precious metal purchases, there is a premium, and according to my figures, the CombiBar runs approximately 15-25% higher than spot price, depending on what precious metal you purchase.

Typical bullion prices only command a 5-10% premium, so it boils down to, “Are you willing to spend a bit more now for easier use in the future?...

Gun Frenzy: Photos Show How Quickly Stores Across the Nation are Selling Out

After nationwide calls to ban assault rifles and high-capacity magazines following the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Americans concerned about the government’s coming move to restrict the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession of firearms deemed too dangerous to be in the hands of private citizens are cleaning out gun stores from coast to coast.

While some retailers have made the decision to suspend sales and stop selling certain firearms altogether, others are seeing sales skyrocket to never before seen levels. Parking lots are packed and hopeful shoppers are waiting hours for their chance to get their hands on weapons, parts and magazines that may soon be banned under Federal mandates.

The following photos taken over a three day period at a local gun store give us a glimpse of just how fast gun stores are clearing out their inventory. According to the shop owner who took these pictures, their store was selling upwards of one thousand guns per day.

Here’s how the store looked on the Sunday before the frenzy:

On Monday:

By Tuesday, shelves were almost clean:

Magazines, especially high capacity magazines, are selling at such a rapid pace that supply and demand has led some retailers to charge three times as much for a single magazine then they did just a week prior to the frenzy....

Top Online Gun Retailer Suspends Sales of Firearms, “Effective Immediately” – Hayden’s Note Attached Thumbnail

Top Online Gun Retailer Suspends Sales of Firearms, “Effective Immediately” – Hayden’s Note Attached

Posted on Dec 19, 2012 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Political Issues, Social Networking

Online retailer Cheaper Than Dirt!, one of the world’s largest sporting goods stores and a top online gun distributor, has suspended sales of firearms as of Tuesday.

Hayden’s Note:

Want my opinion? Of course you do, otherwise you wouldn’t be here. Ami’rite?

Here goes: Cheaper Than Dirt, being one of the largest online weapon sellers, gets wind of what’s coming down the pipe regarding how gun purchases are made and decides to get ahead of the curve by adjusting their e-commerce approach and sales protocols.  If, and this is a big IF – the White House and Powers That Be implement any sort of weapon ban, you can be sure that online sales, if still legal in any form, will radically change.  This represents a massive investment for companies such as Cheaper Than Dirt. Imagine redesigning your entire business’ way of making money, and you realize in order to minimize down time, they better get to work.

This also suggests to me, and I rarely talk about “Obama gun bans”, that it is hurtling down the proverbial pipe at warp speed and something concrete will be enacted sooner, rather than later.

As I have been immersed in writing ‘Patriot Dawn’, it occurred to me that I have not posted recently, so I pulled this excerpt out of Rapid Fire!: Tactics for High Threat, Protection and Combat Operations.  I was writing about an urban defense/battle scenario as part of the storyline, and this came to mind.

This is merely a way of pulling off a dismounted, anti-armor ambush. The described technique assumes that you have some form of anti-armor weapons system, such as a rocket.

Urban Anti-Armor Ambush

The aim of the anti-armor ambush is to destroy some or at minimum one advancing enemy armored vehicle and escape, not take on the whole enemy column, thus slowing them down and causing harassment and attrition.
The urban anti-armor (anti-tank) ambush is a specialist technique designed for an urban environment. Such an environment has, by design, streets, buildings, side streets and alleyways. These side streets or alleyways create natural defilade. They also create multiple decision points for the approaching enemy armor. The elements of an urban anti-armor ambush are the early warning, kill team, and cover group....

Everyone agrees that water is a must have essential at the top of the list for survival preparations. Consequently, there are a lot of products on the market for cleaning up contaminated water to make it fit for human consumption. This paper takes a quick look at the advantages of ceramic cartridges versus other filter types and discusses a few key issues.

Living Small in a Big World: Alternative Architecture, Tiny Homes, and Strawbale

Andrew Morrison, of StrawBale.com, is interviewed on living small, the role of straw bale construction as a solution for housing, and his experience of living in a pop-up tent trailer in Baja for several months after selling more than half of his belongings.

Hayden’s Note:

While I looove alternative architecture and tiny homes, it is not for some “save the planet” motive.  My obsession with tiny homes is rooted in the evolving shift in perception and understanding that we need to get back to basics, natural settings, and efficiency, coupled with the ability to create Tiny Towns, build small communities, and become radically self-reliant; throwing off the shackles of not only an out of control government, but being truly self sufficient in as many areas as possible.

While many people are still trying to make up their minds about the potential severity of the storm threatening the U.S. northeast, it’s not stopping millions of concerned residents from racing to to grocery stores, gas stations and hardware depots in droves.

Hayden’s Note:

As a total sidenote, my fiance and I were sitting around discussing what this storm should be called since it was slated to collide with a snowstorm.  We officially consider the storm to be Hurrizzardous.  ::hey oh!::

If you’ve ever wanted to know what it looks like when the 99% of Americans who have failed to prepare for a disaster wake up and realize they are facing a major crisis take a look at what’s happening on the east coast ahead of Hurricane Sandy:

Good luck buying lanterns, generators, propane, or – if you are really unprepared – rain boots and batteries in areas in the path of Hurricane Sandy as it bears down on the U.S. East Coast.

The approach of the gigantic storm, which is expected to come ashore on Monday night set off a weekend scramble for supplies from Virginia to New England, causing long lines at gas stations, bare shelves at hardware and home-supply shops, and a run on bread, bottled water and canned foods.
