Dum, Dum, Dum, Dum, – A Wedding and a Day Off

Guys and gals I know I was just gone for a vacation but today is a very special day and I need to take today off too.  I have one son and today he is taking the step of marrying the love of his life.  I am very proud as he is stepping up not just as a husband today but as a step father as well, just as I did for him so many years ago.

What makes this even more awesome is as many of you know I am an ordained non-denominational minister.  So I am preceding over their wedding.  We did the rehearsal last night and we have everything worked out.  It should be an amazing day.  I will return with the expert council show tomorrow.

Episode-1614- The Danger of Nationwide Riots

Imagine this in 25 Cities at One Time!

Imagine this in 25 Cities at One Time!

You have seen it on TV, riots in Greece and Spain over austerity.  Then right here in cities like Ferguson and Baltimore and frankly many others.  People in the streets looting, vandalizing, harming others, setting fires and worse.

Sadly I don’t think we are done yet.  I think we will see massive riots and I do think they will be racially motivated at least at first.  I realize that is something you are not supposed to say, but it is what I see coming.

I think the first few riots are just the beginning.  I feel the people in power know what is coming and see it as inevitable.   I might not go as far as to say they want it to happen, but I do believe they are already planning on how to use it for their own gains when it happens.

Join Me Today to Discuss…

  • What causes riots
    • Shortages
    • Feeling hopeless
    • In short anger
  • The 10% scumbag theory and the next 10 follow theory
  • How riots begin, how they grow, it is like a fire in reality
  • The racial fuel to riots in the US
    • Remember the 10%
    • Legitimate abuses of minority communities
    • The mantra of “you are a victim”
    • Frankly in our nation, you have to blame someone
  • What would national riots look like
    • Supply lines choked or closed
    • Over 30 million people live in the top 20 US cities
    • Over 170 million people live in the top 10 US states
    • This includes major ports of call like LA, Seattle, Jacksonville and San Diego
    • Spill over would effect the larger urban areas
    • Martial law would be declared, the local and state PD can’t handle it
    • Even if you are relatively “safe” you will be effected
  • The larger danger
    • Random attacks
    • Reduced LEO active in so called safe areas
    • Prosecution for self defense will happen
    • Reprisal by those being attacked will happen
  • The real losses will come in the after math
    • No good crisis goes to waste
      • Gun and weapons regulations
      • Restrictions on the right to protest
      • A war on so called “hate speech” and symbols
      • Enlargement of the police state
      • The mantra of “domestic terrorism”
      • The blame game
      • Divide and conquer, as though we need more division to be conquered
  • Is it inevitable, may be, but may be not
  • What you need to do for your own protection

Last of the Sentinel Shirts


ECAS t

The Every Citizen a Sentinel T-shirt was the first item to appear at TSPgear.com. TSP Gear Shop now only has 26 of these left. All of the pre-orders have been filled and these are extras from the final run. Sizes Small through 2XL are available.

Printed with “Not on my watch” on the front chest and “Long Live the Republic” on the back. The phrase “Every Citizen a Sentinel” originally appeared on an episode a few years ago after it was realized that not everyone is cut out to be a warrior, but all who embrace personal philosophies of freedom and liberty are surely warriors at heart. Only some will be labeled a soldier, but anyone can deem him or herself a Sentinel.

Episode-1613- Food Storage for Modern Living

Biltong - The South African Way to Store Meat Long Term

Biltong – The South African Way to Store Meat Long Term

Food storage is at the fundamental core of the survivalist/prepper movement and with good reason.  Your body is a machine that runs on a fuel we call food.  Run out of nutritional food and you experience things like hunger, lack of energy, illness and eventually death.

The reality though is food storage isn’t just for preppers, it should be for everyone.  One thing I noticed when house shopping in Pennsylvania back in 2001 was pantry size.  We looked at new homes and they had tiny pantries.  We also looked at many homes from 80-120 years old, all had large pantries.  I don’t think it was because our prior generations were survivalists, no rather it was simply that they literally did know where their bread was buttered.

Today we examine the how, what and why of food storage.  We dig into why it isn’t really something for “survivalists” but for anyone who simply values money, convenience and their current life style.

Join Me Today to Discuss…

  • Why we store food
    • You know you are going to need it
    • It can help you save money
    • Convenience
    • Insurance of your lifestyle
    • To help others
    • Yes for the worst of times as well
  • What we store
    • What we eat
    • What stores well
    • What we can make storable
    • Things that store well and prepare well in volume
  • Holistic Food Storage “The Rules”
    • Rule One – Eat what you store, store what you eat
    • Rule Two – Take advantage of opportunity buys
    • Rule Three – Find local sources of food and partake of them
    • Rule Four – Use commercially prepared long term storables as extenders
    • Rule Five – Become a producer of food and/or storables
    • Rule Six –  Seek a Holistic Solution
    • How storing food empowers you to live a better life

cherry_lapinsBob Wells Plant of the Week – Lapins Cherry – Highly adaptable zone 5 to zone 9.  This cherry is one of the few truly self-fertile options, making it ideal for small back yard growers with limited space.

Additionally it only requires 400-500 chilling hours. It is also one of the few cherry trees that can be planted in full sun, even in zone 9 and handle the extreme summer heat in the south, yet cold hardy enough to handle the extreme cold in zone 5.

Bob Wells specializes in edible landscape, including: Fruit Trees, Berry Plants, Vine Fruit, Nut Trees, as well as the hard to find Specialty Fruit Trees. Find this plant and more at BobWellsNursery.com

The Michael “Scout” Adams Children’s College Fund

Click Here to Help Scouts 5 Girls Have a Better Future.

Click Here to Help Scouts 5 Girls Have a Better Future.

Yesterday I mentioned on air that a GoFundMe had been set up to provide some scolarship money for the three daughters of community Michael Scout Adams.  Michael was a passionate instructor for the Appleseed Project, the host of The Rifleman Radio Show, a tireless warrior for second amendment rights and a good friend to the TSPC community.

He left us as many truly great men do far too early.  He leaves behind 5 wonderful daughters.  You can contribute their future in memory of their father at this link.

Michael contributed greatly to this community in are early days, going as far as putting TSP stickers on Appleseed Rack Rifles to promote my efforts.  I would like to now kindly ask that the community show a bit of support for his family in this hard time.

Thank you,

Jack

Farmer Phil’s Permaculture: The Original Permaculture Children’s Book

philOne of our guests and MSB members, Phil Williams, wrote a permaculture children’s picture book. He recently sent me a copy and I read it to my grandson. First off the illustrations are excellent, with true to life permaculture features. Second and most importantly my grandson enjoyed the story.

Most of the permaculture books and material you see is geared toward adults with at least a basic knowledge of the design science. Here we have a permaculture book for the younger crowd. As a teacher, I love the idea of exposing children to permaculture through a story.

Phil has made a PDF of the book freely available on his site for people to try. So, if you’d like to take a look at the book, feel free to download it here.

Even though you can get the PDF at no cost, I hope everyone will consider picking up a copy. Hardcover, softcover, and E-books can be found on Amazon: Here

One of our favorite things to do when our grandson spends the night is to read to him at bedtime.  With this book we get a great story that interests a young child and teaches him at the same time.  Check it out and you will see what I mean.

Synopsis – Eden’s dad, eager to exit the rat race, buys a farm. Eden is disappointed when the farm looks more like a factory than the country setting she imagined.

With the animals and their future at stake, she must trust Mother Nature. While peering through the hole in their fence, Eden catches a glimpse of the natural beauty next door.

She befriends Farmer Phil, who teaches her to observe. Through observation, Eden understands the plants and animals, but she doesn’t know what to do. Farmer Phil advises her to read from the book of nature.

To save the farm, Eden must see that the problem is the solution.
