5 Must-Have Essentials for Your Next Camping Trip

See the original story at……. http://americanpreppersnetwork.com/2017/06/5-must-essentials-next-camping-trip.html

Camping has been here for hundreds of years. And as new research indicates, it seems like camping will stay one of America’s favorite past time. According to the recent American Camper Report, the average camper in the United States goes on five camping trips every year. If you’re not an experienced outdoorsman, you may discover that packing for a camping trip is actually a lot trickier than you might have originally thought. The basics are easy – tent and sleeping bags – but before you know, you have a fully loaded car with more items than you actually need. Also, you have to keep in mind that when camping, you must carry out whatever you carried in. so with that in mind, let’s talk about some of the camping essentials you need for your next trip. So before you pack your favorite books, snacks and camping gear, check out a couple of things you simply cannot leave without.

Five Camping Essentials:

1. Warm Clothes

If you’ve ever went camping during the summer, then you’re probably aware that no matter how warm it may be during the day, when the sun goes down, it is a completely different story. And that’s why you need to pack some extra clothing to stay warm during the night. What’s more, you need to know that Mother Nature can be tricky – the rain often comes without any warning. When you’re miles away from your home, having some warm clothes will certainly make a difference. And just a friendly reminder: never leave your camping spot without and additional pair of socks.

2. First Aid Kit

In most cases, it doesn’t take more than a wrong step to get injured – especially when you’re in the great outdoors. Trails are often slippery during the autumn and winter, and branches are always sharp. That’s why you need to have a first aid kit at hand at all times. When it comes to first aid kits, you have two options – one is to simply purchase a kit from your local store or order one from the Internet; the other is to go to the pharmacy, buy some medical supplies and make a kit of your own. The second option is more recommendable if you’re allergic to certain things and if you require specific medications.

3. Flashlight

Here we have an essential most people tend to forget – a flashlight. It can come in handy if you’re going on a long hike in an unfamiliar territory. But even if you don’t plan on hiking, it will also come in handy around your camping site during the night. Just make sure to buy some decent batteries, and you’ll see that a flashlight can save the day in certain situations. So whether you get lost on a hike during the night, simply misplace a couple of items around your campsite or have to relieve yourself during the sunset a strong source of light will help you.

4. Mess Kit

When it comes to cooking, it’s easy to get carried away. Most people tend to pack too much food or bring too much cookware and waste valuable space in their bags. However, all you need are two things – a simple food kit with your favorite food items and a mess kit to prepare your meals. If you don’t know what a mess kit is, here is a quick explanation – it’s a kit with all of cooking essentials (pot, pan, Spork, etc.) that can be put together sort of like a small jigsaw puzzle and save you valuable space inside of your backpack.

5. Ground Mat

Nobody goes camping without a tent. That’s just common sense. But if you forget to bring a ground mat, you’ll see just how sleeping on the ground really is. And if it rains, you’ll probably wake up to a pool rain underneath your back. Therefore, a ground mat will keep you and your gear completely dry, no matter the weather. And don’t worry, these things are lightweight and they can be easily rolled into a tent, so you won’t even notice it’s in your backpack.

Final Thoughts

Preparation is essential if you want to have a great outdoor adventure and having the necessary gear and supplies will definitely make difference in your overall experience. In this case, it’s great to have a small checklist to help you with the organization. While the list may vary according to the type of activities you have in mind, the items we listed above should definitely be a part of every camping checklist, no matter where are you going or where are you going.

Here Is The Reality Of Our Predicament: “The US System Is Going To Move Into The Next Phase Of Collapse Under Trump’s Watch”

The Real Purpose Behind The Russian/Trump Conspiracy Propaganda

Just after the US presidential election in 2016 I published an article titled ‘Order Out Of Chaos: Defeat Of The Left Comes With A Cost’, covering a rather difficult subject matter, namely the concept of “4th Generation Warfare” and how it is used by establishment elitists to defeat popular resistance to their agenda of centralization and globalization. 4th Gen tactics are confusing to many because most people think in terms of single movements and direct correlations; they think that a punch thrown is a punch intended to strike, rather than intended as a feint or misdirection.

I’ll put it another way – some people play chess and they only see the attack in front of them. Others play chess and they see the attack three moves ahead. 4th gen warfare is a “three steps ahead” style of fighting that focuses on a very specific goal: Tricking the enemy into destroying himself, or enslaving himself, so that you don’t have to take any risks by moving against him directly. That is to say, 4th gen warfare is first and foremost about psychology. That which you see with your eyes is usually not what is actually happening.

For example, when predicting the election win of Donald Trump and the passage of Brexit, I based my conclusions on a 4th gen strategy. According to the behavior and rhetoric of globalists and their organizations at the time, it seemed to me that they were allowing sovereignty and conservative movements to gain a foothold in the political arena. They were letting us THINK that we were winning.

This accomplishes a few things – it takes conservatives off their guard and convinces them to think in terms of defending government rather than overthrowing government. The corruption has not changed, but now we have a vested interest in keeping the system going and attempting to change it “from the inside”. I hope it is clear to the majority of liberty activists today that this is a naive notion.

Conservatives are also now willing to argue in favor of the election system, because many of them think that because Donald Trump “won” the system must be at least partially legitimate. News Flash: Our election system has been fraudulent for decades. The only candidates that ever make it past the DNC and the RNC filters are the candidates the elites WANT the public to choose from.

The American public is also now viciously divided over Trump’s ascendance to the White House. The political left has been driven to the point of utter insanity, not that they weren’t already stark raving mad to begin with. Conservatives are next to be targeted with psychological manipulation, as the leftist zealotry pushes us towards the other end of the spectrum and a potentially dangerous mindset of rationalizing a totalitarian response. Where extreme social divisions exist, civil unrest and war are not far behind.

Finally, the existing economic and social framework of the US in particular has a finite lifespan. Economic instability is rampant as I noted and evidenced in last week’s article, and this has been a process ongoing since the initial 2008 credit and derivatives crisis. The old structure of America is being deliberately torn down to make way for a new structure; a single global edifice in which we are not a nation but a feudal vassal with no ideas of sovereign self determination. That said, the old world cannot be torn down outright. The globalists do not plan to take any blame for the crisis that would inevitably follow. Enter Trump, the perfect scapegoat for the next stage of fiscal collapse, and perhaps a pied piper convincing enough to lure numerous conservative groups into taking the blame as well.

Trump, a seeming enemy of the globalist agenda, takes office, then surrounds himself with the same bankers and globalists he admonished during his campaign. He continues his anti-globalist rhetoric, but his actions tend to help them. Conservatives, desperate for a hero on a white horse to ride in and stop the rushing tide of cultural Marxism, were given one…just not in the manner they were hoping for.

In the meantime, the establishment has sought to keep social tensions high. How? The political left has been played like a marionette since the election with a narrative of “Russian conspiracy”. You see, hatred is psychologically exhausting. Mobs tend to dissipate and become impotent over time. It is hard to sustain the hatred of a large mass of people without consistent propaganda. Thus, it is important to give people a reason to hate; a reason that fuels perpetual reinforcement. For leftists, the desire to hate Trump runs deep. They think he represents everything that stands in opposition to their ideology, and zealots cannot tolerate the existence of opposing ideals. But there has to be more. The left has to be convinced that Trump is a thief, a thief so heinous that he stole an election with the help of a foreign power.

Now, not only is Trump the anti-christ to leftists, he is also a false president – a pretender to the throne. This narrative is more than enough to keep the left frothing at the mouth for months if not years.

As many analysts have pointed out, there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that Trump “stole” the election, let alone colluded with the Russian government to steal the election. Former FBI director James Comey’s recent testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee produced nothing; no memos, no paper trail, zip, zilch. The very existence of the “Comey memos” is likely a farce.

But here is where I break with many in the liberty movement – some analysts assume that Trump is being “targeted” and that the goal is to remove him from the White House. This makes little sense to me. If the elites wanted to stop Trump they would have done it during the RNC selection process just as they did to Ron Paul, and just as the DNC did to Bernie Sanders.

Clearly, Trump is more valuable to them sitting in the Oval Office, as I outlined above. The Russian circus is going nowhere because it was never meant to go anywhere. It is distraction and drama, a soap opera for the ignorant masses. Trump will not be removed from office. If he does end up impeached, the impeachment will fail. As I have said since before the election, the establishment needs Trump as president.

So, if I am correct and the Russian conspiracy narrative is not intended to take Trump down, what is it intended for? As stated earlier, this is 4th gen warfare, and the intended target for propaganda is not always the obvious target.

As noted, Leftists are the initial target. They will continue to believe that Trump is a Russian collaborator because they want to believe it, regardless of how absurd the whole idea is. They will ignore the fact that there is no evidence to support the accusation. They will embrace the propaganda wholeheartedly and develop more violent methods to express their outrage.

The secondary target of the Russian conspiracy manipulation is conservative groups.

Here is the reality of our predicament; the US system is going to move into the next phase of collapse under Trump’s watch. Period. The math is undeniable. Every economic indicator except stocks is in severe decline, the Federal Reserve is raising interest rates to deliberately ignite greater instability and time is running out. I believe that this phase will begin before the end of 2017. When the next downturn arrives on the doorstep and in the pocketbooks of the average American, the leftists and most of the world will blame Trump as an “incompetent buffoon” or a “vitriolic fascist”.

Just as the elites need to make Trump and conservatives the best possible scapegoat for the left; they also need a perfect scapegoat for the political right. The narrative will be turned against the leftists and conservatives will exclaim that Trump was not able to reverse economic damages “created by the Obama administration” because leftists used the fake Russian conspiracy as a means to undermine him at every opportunity. Leftists will be labeled economic and political saboteurs, and this accusation will work to a point, because it is partly true.

Finally, as America’s decline accelerates, Eastern nations will without a doubt decouple completely from the US dollar as the world reserve currency and begin using the IMF Special Drawing Rights basket structure as a replacement. Russia will most likely lead this charge along with China. Americans will blame Russia in part for the demise of the dollar’s buying power around the world. And, the rest of the world will blame the U.S. for the dollar’s demise due to U.S. “imperialism” and overt sanctions against Russia. They will say we had it coming.

Perhaps you have noticed a particular pattern here? Every piece of the narrative I have outlined has already been initiated, if perhaps only in early-to-mid stages of development. This is an open dialogue common in the mainstream. And in every case, the offered culprit behind the downfall of America is always someone other than the banking elites. Anyone other than the banking elites.

Leftists and socialists around the globe will blame Trump and conservative principles. Conservatives will blame the left and their obstructions of Trump. The West will blame the East. Globalists will blame “populists” and nationalists, and nationalists will be scrambling to protect their ground by any means necessary, including unconstitutional measures, which will only help the globalists in the long run.

A core catalyst for this geopolitical blame game is the Trump presidency and the use of the Russian conspiracy to ensure that the left remains crazy, inspiring the right towards extreme measures. Again, this is not about removing Trump, it is about manipulating the left; it is about using the Left’s cultural Marxism to trigger an iron-fisted reaction from the political right.

In my recent article ‘Operation Temperer – U.K. Will Likely Institute Martial Law Measures Within A Year’, I warned readers that the UK government has already set in motion martial law measures in response to a growing number of Islamic terrorist attacks. In the US, I think the same march towards totalitarianism will occur, but for reasons beyond foreign terrorism. Economic uncertainty coupled with a volatile left hellbent on supplanting the presidency by any means necessary may very well be exploited by Trump and the elites surrounding him to establish martial law measures in the US. And, I have little doubt that a portion of conservatives will cheer this action.

If this takes place and conservatives come out in majority support, then the globalist use of 4thGen warfare will have succeeded. They will have won. For if conservatives abandon the constitution, then no one will be left to defend the principles and heritage it represents. We will have destroyed ourselves, and the elites will have barely lifted a finger to make this happen. The game can be changed entirely, but only if we are smart enough to recognize the narrative for what it is, and only if we turn our sights on the globalists instead of hyperfocusing on the scapegoats they offer us.

With global tensions spiking, thousands of Americans are moving their IRA or 401(k) into an IRA backed by physical gold. Now, thanks to a little-known IRS Tax Law, you can too.

Vaccines and Disaster Preparedness

See the original story at……. http://americanpreppersnetwork.com/2017/06/vaccines-disaster-preparedness.html

In the event of a disaster, communicable diseases greatly increase the risk of death. The major causes of communicable diseases in disasters are contaminated food and water, respiratory infections, vector and insect-borne diseases, and infections due to wounds and injuries.

Keeping up to date with vaccinations is one important way you can be prepared for a disaster. Vaccines can’t prevent every disease you may encounter in a disaster situation, but they can protect you from many. Vaccinations teach your immune system to recognize and eliminate organisms that may make you sick, so your body is already prepared if you’re ever exposed, which might be even more likely in an emergency situation where many people are crowded together or if you have injuries.

In recent years, opposition to vaccinations has been discussed in the news. Some concerned parents have chosen not to vaccinate their children, primarily out of fear that vaccines can cause autism. It’s important to note that multiple studies have shown vaccines do not cause autism. Vaccines have been researched extensively, and are considered very safe.

Unfortunately, the misconceptions around vaccine safety have lead to serious health problems. Due to the large number of people refusing vaccines, diseases that were thought to be eradicated in the U.S., such as measles, have reemerged. Pertussis, or whooping cough, another potentially deadly disease, has also made a resurgence.

The best way to prevent you or your child from contracting a preventable illness is to stay up to date with vaccines.

The recommended vaccinations for infants and young children are:

  • HepB protects against hepatitis B
  • RV protects against rotavirus
  • Tdap protects against diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis
  • Hib protects against Haemophilus influenzae 
  • PCV protects against pneumococcal disease. PCV is given in a series of four doses.
  • IPV protects against polio
  • Influenza (flu) protects against the flu
  • MMR protects against measles, mumps, and rubella
  • Varicella protects chickenpox
  • HepA protects against hepatitis A

An immunization schedule for infants and children is available on the CDC website.

Recommended vaccinations for adults are:

  • Tdap: You’ll need a booster dose every 10 years. Protection from tetanus is especially important in the event of a disaster, where you may be exposed to rusty metal which greatly heightens your risk for this disease. You’ll need this vaccine in the event of an emergency surgery.

  • Inflluenza: Adults should get this shot once a year.

Other vaccinations recommended for adults on a case-by-case basis are listed here, but always check with your doctor to see if they apply to you.

In short, getting vaccinated and staying up to date with vaccinations is an easy way to protect yourself, your family, and the whole population. Vaccines can prevent the outbreak of serious illnesses and save many lives. There are some groups of people who may not be able to get vaccinated, such as pregnant mothers, newborn infants, or people with a compromised immune system. If you can get vaccinated, you’re helping protect the people who can’t by containing the disease through “community immunity.”

In the event of a disaster, communicable diseases greatly increase the risk of death. The major causes of communicable diseases in disasters are contaminated food and water, respiratory infections, vector and insect-borne diseases, and infections due to wounds and injuries.

Keeping up to date with vaccinations is one important way you can be prepared for a disaster. Vaccines can’t prevent every disease you may encounter in a disaster situation, but they can protect you from many. Vaccinations teach your immune system to recognize and eliminate organisms that may make you sick, so your body is already prepared if you’re ever exposed, which might be even more likely in an emergency situation where many people are crowded together or if you have injuries.

In recent years, opposition to vaccinations has been discussed in the news. Some concerned parents have chosen not to vaccinate their children, primarily out of fear that vaccines can cause autism. It’s important to note that multiple studies have shown vaccines do not cause autism. Vaccines have been researched extensively, and are considered very safe.

Unfortunately, the misconceptions around vaccine safety have lead to serious health problems. Due to the large number of people refusing vaccines, diseases that were thought to be eradicated in the U.S., such as measles, have reemerged. Pertussis, or whooping cough, another potentially deadly disease, has also made a resurgence.

The best way to prevent you or your child from contracting a preventable illness is to stay up to date with vaccines.

The recommended vaccinations for infants and young children are:

  • HepB protects against hepatitis B
  • RV protects against rotavirus
  • Tdap protects against diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis
  • Hib protects against Haemophilus influenzae 
  • PCV protects against pneumococcal disease. PCV is given in a series of four doses.
  • IPV protects against polio
  • Influenza (flu) protects against the flu
  • MMR protects against measles, mumps, and rubella
  • Varicella protects chickenpox
  • HepA protects against hepatitis A

An immunization schedule for infants and children is available on the CDC website.

Recommended vaccinations for adults are:

  • Tdap: You’ll need a booster dose every 10 years. Protection from tetanus is especially important in the event of a disaster, where you may be exposed to rusty metal which greatly heightens your risk for this disease. You’ll need this vaccine in the event of an emergency surgery.

  • Inflluenza: Adults should get this shot once a year.

Gun Makers Work Around California’s New “Assault Weapons” Ban

California’s draconian new gun laws will require residents of the Golden state to register their “assault weapons” with the state (which they will have to pay to do of course) by the end of the year.  But thanks to capitalism and the free market, gun makers have already figured out workarounds.

One of the new laws labels an “assault weapon” as any gun that doesn’t have a fixed magazine.  So Franklin Armory owner Jay Jacobson invented “Drop in Fixed Magazine” or DFM. Jacobson had demonstrated his patented new device which is designed to get around the state’s new “assault weapons” law. The new law clamps down on a previous device known as a bullet button to Californians. The bullet button was a workaround for an earlier ban on rifles with detachable and quickly reloadable ammunition magazines. The DFM invention is actually ingenious for those stuck in the Golden state. The magazine is fixed from the bottom as the law requires; but it can come out the top, technically legal because it involves partially disassembling the gun. It’s a workaround that still allows shooters to quickly reload with very little delay.

If curious as to how the magazine works, watch the below video.


“Basically if it’s not written that you can’t do it, it should be good to go. So it’s not a loophole, it’s just the legislature hasn’t covered that yet,” said Jacobson. And the good news is that that is not the only new product on the market for Californians.

CBS News San Francisco says they have found at least six new inventions that work around the new law.  One is the AR Maglock, which allows California AR-15 owners to comply with existing fixed magazine laws, thus avoiding Department of Justice registration. The AR MAGLOCK engages the magazine so it stays “fixed” in the firearm until the action is disassembled, complying with California SB 880 & AB 1135, and Department of Justice regulations.

Other inventions to get around the registration of your gun are the Patriot Mag Release, the MA Loader, and the Bear Flag Defense. They are all designed to allow bullet button gun owners to avoid registering, yet still, have fast reloading weapons. Many anti-gun hoplophobes reside in California, and they are not happy that the private market has found workarounds.  But Jacobson says it will always be this way, and the market is going to provide.

“Criminals don’t care. So the only people that are affected by this are law abiding Californians that are trying to do the right thing. The legislature has tried several times to basically find ways to prevent the AR-15 from entering California. And the reality is that whether it’s Franklin Armory or my peers in the industry, there’s always going to be a way to make the firearm legal in California, and they are just grasping at straws,” said Jacobson.

The Department of Justice won’t say whether any of these devices are legal until after it issues formal regulations on how to implement the new assault weapons ban, a process that is six months behind schedule because a government is inefficient at everything. They can’t seem to even roll out a ban on an item they hate with the mass majority of the state’s voters behind them. But the private market is well ahead of these new draconian laws.
