Water is one of the most strategic preps that one can have should the grid go down or we find ourselves caught in the middle of a disaster. All other preparedness plans fail without it, and even if you stock bottled water or have spare filters, if it is a prolonged emergency, eventually you will run out.

That’s where a water pump comes into play. For those with land or a retreat, even a water well in your backyard, if you are relying on electric or motorized pumps to fill your needs, have you developed an alternative energy plan? Do you have a back-up plan when those solar panels get damaged or your batteries are dead?

I believe in having a back-up for my back-ups, and when assessing my water situation at my off-grid, shipping container homestead – the Elysian Fields Project, I decided to cut out the middle man and install a manual water pump as my primary plan.

Should we encounter a prolonged grid-down event, or EMP, this pump will continue delivering water as long as I can pump the handle!...

Sheriff Says 911 Isn’t Best Option; Safety No Longer a Spectator Sport, “I Need You in the Game”

Posted on Jan 29, 2013 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Police, Military, & War

Milwaukee area Sheriff David Clarke released a public service announcement urging citizens to seek firearm training and fight back against the criminal elements that seek to do them harm.

In the PSA, Sheriff Clarke cites recent police cutbacks and layoffs, along with mentioning prolonged police arrival times and that calling 911 might not be in your best interest initially.  Sheriff Clarke encourages his constituents to “be prepared”, and candidly states that their safety is no longer a spectator sport; he needs them in the game alongside his deputies.

“…your safety — it’s no longer a spectator sport; I need you in the game.”

He goes on to offer three choices for would-be victims: beg for mercy from violent criminals, hide under the bed, or fight back!

“It’s your duty to protect yourself and your family,” he says. “We’re partners now. Can I count on you?”

Sheriff Clarke has been receiving an onslaught of complaints and calls for his resignation from various groups, along with the President of the Deputy Sheriff’s Association, Roy Felber, suggesting the public service announcement is more closely aligned to a call for vigilantism....

Hayden’s Note: Military Helicopters Terrorize Houston, “Warzone” – The New Normal

The sight of Army helicopters and the sound of gunfire created a lot of concern Monday afternoon in one Houston neighborhood.

With military helicopters flying above her southeast Houston neighborhood, Frances Jerrals didn’t know what to think.

“…it sounds like we’re in a war zone. Guns, shooting, helicopters flying around the house,'” Isaac Robertson Jr. said.

The U.S. Army, along with other agencies, took over the old Carnegie Vanguard High School near Scott and Airport. There were armed men in fatigues, plenty of weapons and what many thought were real live rounds.

“I felt like I was in a warzone.” Jerrals said. “It was nonstop. I was terrified.”

“If it’s to protect our kids, I’m all for it,” neighbor Glenn DeWitt said. 

Hayden’s Note:

THIS is the problem. Fear mongering, complacency, and a sheeple mentality: handing over all critical thinking skills and effort to the government will come with a heavy price. Mr. Glenn DeWitt believes that the US military is training to protect our school children.

Utility Workers and Police Trespass to Install Smart Meter, Arrest Home Owner [Video]

Posted on Jan 25, 2013 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Health, Food News, & Big Pharma, Police, Military, & War, Political Issues

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Naperville, IL, resident Malia “Kim” Bendis and her neighbor were arrested on eavesdropping and resisting an officer charges after video recording two police officers and utility workers installing a “smart meter” – which have been linked to health issues – on her neighbor’s house.  The home owner, identified only as Laura, is clearly seen on video refusing consent for the utility workers and police to be on her property, along with expressing concerns for her child’s health and safety, but is threatened with arrest if she interferes.

What happened to 4th Amendment requirements? What happened to private property laws?

Why are the police masquerading as enforcing City Hall requirements when in reality, they are protecting a private company?

Illinois citizens are still being arrested for recording police officers despite a 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling last year that blocked the enforcement of the law on the grounds that it was unconstitutional.

The law, which made it a felony to record them, even while acting in their official role as a public servant – in public, where no expectation of privacy is considered – is highly illogical, especially in this particular case.  ...

JP Morgan, Economists Agree: Market Collapse Will Strike in 2013

According to a major bank, a pair of noted economists, and one controversial billionaire, 2013 will be a “year of terrible reckoning” for the stock market.

JP Morgan just released its outlook for the first quarter. Surprisingly, this regularly bullish company has reversed course and revealed an ominous chart that every investor needs to be alerted to.

As you can clearly see, stocks have retraced the pattern from the last two big market rallies (averaging over 100%), and now face a massive decline in 2013 (of over 50%).

Market Collapse Chart

JP Morgan isn’t alone in its stark predictions.

Hayden’s Note:

This is a must-read article. Additionally, by looking at the chart above, one can clearly see that from ’97 to ’00, it was a moderate uphill climb, followed by a very similar descent. In ’02, it took much longer to get to that high market rally point before descending much more rapidly than the previous fall. The ’09 ascent will likely not top off for several more months, suckering in more market-players before crashing faster than ever before.

Worried about draconian Internet laws? Creeping surveillance? The Internet is still a tool of tremendous power, but a deep rot has set in. We have caught it early and we are fighting to stop this rot, but there are other options we can begin exploring to hedge our bets and enhance our current efforts.

What If? Hayden’s Coffee Thoughts on Russia, Obama, and Guns

Posted on Jan 23, 2013 in Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

I’ve been doing some thinking; some exercises in mental creativity, if you will, about the current craze surrounding gun confiscation and assault rifles and I want you to join in on this little walk down Crazy Road with me.

What if…

What if President Obama or members of the Federal Government have information to suggest that Russia or China are aligning themselves to engage in a full-blown World War 3?

What if a handful of our elected leaders knew that something catastrophic was coming down the pipeline and are unable to declare it publicly due to the inevitable, ensuing chaos and panic that it would create?

What if those Powers That Be were using reverse psychology, screaming “gun ban! gun confiscation!”, in an effort to get Americans to buy even more firearms and specifically, those illustrious, evil “assault weapons”?

What if …?

What if these globalist, money-hungry, power grabbers are actually trying to get us to arm ourselves in a fashion that no economic stimulus ever could?

What if the reason they have purchased a historical 1.6 billion+ rounds of jacketed hollow point .40 caliber rounds is to arm our domestic law enforcement against this coming catastrophe or invasion?...

Public Release of All Data Submitted by Monsanto for Approval of GM Corn

The approval process in many countries for genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and their chemical-based treatment technologies is largely a secretive affair, as the public is typically not made privy to the data used in the decision making process, nor the rationale behind officials’ ultimate decision to green-light a particular crop or chemical. But this appears to be changing in Europe, where the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) recently made public all available data originally submitted by Monsanto in 2003 for the approval of a popular GM corn variety known as NK603.

According to the Nature news blog, EFSA intends to eventually iron out a full-scale plan to make all data on GMOs and chemicals publicly available. But at this point in time, the regulatory body is starting the process by responding to requests from members of the independent scientific community and the public about the details behind NK603’s approval. With the exception of “a small amount of commercially confidential information,” EFSA has reportedly publicly released all the data submitted by Monsanto for NK603....

Former SEAL: Dear Mr. Security Agent

Posted on Jan 23, 2013 in Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Excerpt from Matt Bracken’s Open Letter to Law Enforcement with Hayden’s Note at the end;

The unintended consequences of this misguided utopian fool’s crusade to ban guns would include a second civil war as agonizingly painful as the first one, if not more so, since there would be no front lines and no safe areas for anybody, anywhere. Every sane American wants to prevent such a calamitous outcome as a “dirty civil war” on United States soil.

But know this: those tens of millions will never be quietly disarmed and then later forced at government gunpoint onto history’s next boxcars. If boxcars and detention camps are to be in America’s future, then you, Mr. Security Agent, will have to disarm them the hard way first. Not Piers Morgan, not Dianne Feinstein, not Chuck Schumer.

You.

And so, if you find yourself silently dismounting a covert SWAT vehicle at zero-dark-thirty, dressed in body armor, counting down to the explosion of battering rams and flash-bang grenades, on a raid against a sleeping household intended to result in the confiscation of firearms, ammunition, or magazines that were legal to own in 2012, millions of Americans who also swore an oath to defend the Constitution will consider you their domestic enemy, and they will resist you with force of arms....

Senator Asks CIA Nominee When Drones Can Kill Americans; Can They Surrender?

The man in charge of America’s drone wars will face Senate questioning about perhaps their most controversial aspect: when the president can target American citizens for death.

Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) sent a letter on Monday to John Brennan, the White House’s counterterrorism adviser and nominee to be head of the CIA, asking for an outline of the legal and practical rules that underpin the U.S. government’s targeted killing of American citizens suspected of working with al-Qaida. The Obama administration has repeatedly resisted disclosing any such information about its so-called “disposition matrix” targeting terrorists, especially where it concerns possible American targets. Brennan reportedly oversees that matrix from his White House perch, and would be responsible for its execution at CIA director.

“How much evidence does the President need to determine that a particular American can be lawfully killed?” Wyden, a member of the Senate intelligence committee, asks in the letter, acquired by Danger Room. “Does the President have to provide individual Americans with the opportunity to surrender before killing them?”

Ray Nagin, former New Orleans mayor and the public face of the battered city in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, has been indicted by a grand jury on 21 federal corruption charges.

Hayden’s Note:

Let’s just file this under, “….duh!”  There are a slew of New Orleans government officials and police officers who should face a grand jury inquiry.  It was only a matter of time until Mayor Ray Nagin was caught.  But, for those of you who don’t live in New Orleans, or don’t understand the depth of the corruption and depravity down there, this is par for the course.  This comes as no surprise to anyone who understands how NOLA operates, which is saddening, because there is no other place quite like it.  New Orleans is an amazing, magical place in so many ways, but the mindset, and the “way we do things” down there distorts it into a large-scale ghetto, full of the worst that mankind can offer one another.  I will always consider it my former home, but there truly is no way to turn it into the place it should and could be.

This paper discusses the two main styles of ceramic filter cartridges that are currently on the market.  These are the ‘candle’ filter and the ‘dome’ filter.  I often get questions on whether one is better than the other and have also seen several DIY blogs on the internet showing both of these.  I figured it was a good idea to write a short paper on this topic to add as a reference to the technical notes on my website and to help folks interested in researching this.

For those who may be unfamiliar with ceramic water filters, here is a brief overview.

Cut-away diagram of a DIY water filter. Much cheaper than the Big Berks.

The ceramic water filter cartridge consists of a ceramic shell, containing colloidal silver and enclosing some amount of activated carbon.  The shell has very small pore openings that allow water to pass through but are too small for bacteria.  The silver keeps bacteria from growing on the shell, and the activated charcoal adsorbs chemicals that are present in the water.  ...

Top 10 Dangers of Fluoride Thumbnail

Top 10 Dangers of Fluoride

Posted on Jan 16, 2013 in Health, Food News, & Big Pharma

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Are you aware of the health dangers of fluoride? Did you know that fluoride can damage fertility, destroy bones and cause early puberty in children?

Water fluoridation has been banned in many countries including: China, Austria, Belgium, Finland, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands, Hungary, and Japan. Nearly all of Europe’s water supply is fluoride-free.

And yet, fluoride is omnipresent in the American food supply. It’s in our water, in juice, soda, wine and coffee, in soups and processed food, and in baby formula. The majority of American cities have fluoridated water.

Water II

Sources of Fluoride

Many people think they can avoid fluoride by just using fluoride-free toothpaste. However, fluoride isn’t just in toothpaste. Almost all of the beverages sold in stores and restaurants are made with tap water. People who drink those beverages ingest a fair amount of added fluoride.

1. Accumulation of Fluoride in the Body

Fluoride accumulates in the body. Healthy adult kidneys excrete 50 to 60% of the fluoride ingested each day (Marier & Rose 1971). Any remaining fluoride accumulates in the body, typically in the bones and pineal gland (Luke 1997, 2001). ...

Guns, Obama, and Executive Orders: Are We Being Distracted?

Posted on Jan 16, 2013 in Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Health, Food News, & Big Pharma, Political Issues

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

As you comb through the various executive orders and memorandums that Obama signed into action today, I would like you to take note of the bland nature of this “tough crackdown” on gun violence. I think it goes without saying that anyone, on either side of this “debate”, agree that criminals and those with serious-ill intent should not be in possession of a weapon or item that can cause mass casualties. That’s a no-brainer, and re-iterating it merely pays lip-service to the dumbed-down masses.  Items such as nominating an ATF Director, sponsoring a responsible gun ownership campaign, or helping to develop emergency plans for schools and houses of worship are all great ideas, if not extremely archaic and fundamental in nature.

These are actions that should not be receiving national airtime. Now, the argument as to whether the government should be spending money to educate private companies in contingency plans, or offering financial incentives for various actions is an entirely different, economic and Constitutional conversation – one that we can have, if you would like, but let’s stay on track in regards to the whole “firearms distraction.”

While there are some disturbing orders contained within this executive action, such as emphasizing medical doctor’s roles in likely creating a “no-buy” list based upon information gleaned from medical care, and aside from the strong urging for another gun and magazine ban, I am truly curious as to what else is happening in the background that we are being led away from....
