30 signs you’re one of those crazy preppers | Rural Revolution

Here are the top 30 signs, should you ever be the subject of a nationwide manhunt, that you too will be considered a “Crazy Prepper on the Loose”:

1. Pantries are so mainstream… you have food stashed in strange places in every room of the house.
2. You have enough toilet paper to get through a year of uncomfortable digestive upsets… occurring with 6 people simultaneously
3. Speaking of which, you possess at least 3 different ways to use the bathroom, only one of which is an actual bathroom.
4. Your kids know what OPSEC means…at the age of 4.
5. You have topographical maps of your area… plural.
6. When you’re forced to interact with “the others” you feel like you are awkwardly censoring your true opinions
7. You think nothing of treating an injury or illness yourself because “what if there was no doctor?”
8. Paintball is no longer just a fun way to spend an afternoon –- it’s called “training.”
9. With every major purchase, you contemplate going for the off-grid version.
10. You have more manual tools than power tools.
11. You’ve washed entire loads of laundry by hand for either necessity or practice. (And not just your dainties… we’re talking about jeans and stuff!)
12. Your kids are not afraid of guns…or fingers pointed like guns… or pastries in the shape of guns…or drawings of guns.
13. When house hunting you look for multiple heat and water sources.
14. You store food in buckets… lots of buckets… like, maybe even a whole room full of buckets.
15. You garden with a determination and time commitment normally reserved for endurance athletes training for an Ironman triathlon.
16. If you don’t have a water source on your property, you have put in miles of footwork searching for one nearby, and have mapped multiple discreet routes to and from the source, and figured out how to haul the water back to your house on each route.
17. Your first instinct when hearing about some event on the mainstream news is skepticism. (False flag event, anyone?)
18. You believe that FEMA camps are real and that you are most likely on “The List”.
19. Instead of CNN, you have alternative news sites bookmarked in your favorites on your computer.
20. You have enough coffee/tea/favorite-caffeinated-item-of-choice to last you through three apocalypses.
21. You have enough over the counter medications stashed away to outfit a small-town pharmacy.
22. You have an instinctive mistrust of most cops or anyone working for an alphabet agency.
23. You could sink a ship with the weight of your stored ammo.
24. Looking for a fun weekend outing with the kids? Forget amusement parks –- the shooting range is where it’s at.
25. When the power goes out, you calmly light the candles and proceed with whatever you had been dong previously.
26. A longer-term power outage is called “practice.”
27. If a like-minded person comes over to your house, they’ll realize you are “one of them” by seeing your reading material. Other folks won’t even notice. The FBI would call your copy of The Prepper’s Blueprint and your James Wesley Rawles fiction “subversive literature.”
28. Your children carry a modified bug-out kit in their school backpacks.
29. You can and dehydrate food with the single-minded fervor of a Amish grandmother facing a seven-year drought.
30. Calling 911 is not part of your home security plan.

Everybody’s Favorite Democrat Wishes Ebola Virus On NRA Members

Every once in a while, we like to check in on our favorite Democrat, Mike Dickinson.

We first met Dickinson back in February. He’s a write-in candidate for Congress in Virginia. He appeared on Sean Hannity’s show to defend ridiculous statements that all Fox News does is lie. That didn’t go so well, as Hannity wiped the floor with him.

Not content to take his beatings a skulk away, he reappeared on Greta Van Susteren’s show, calling the NRA, the Tea Party and others “trash.”

Then in May, he made some wonderfully stupid tweets wishing he could live in the time of the Civil War so he could fight the Tea Party.

I guess it’s been too long since anybody paid attention to him, because Dickinson is back.

The cleverless dimwit now is tweeting that NRA member should get the Ebola virus.

A new FBI domestic threat report does not include Islamist terrorism

Originally posted on America's Watchtower:

 According to this story the FBI has just released its domestic threat assessment report for the year 2013, and it states that the domestic threat level for last year was moderate and they expect that to remain the case for the rest of 2014. 

  The report then goes on to list some of the domestic threats, here are some of them:

They include anti-government militia groups and white supremacy extremists, along with “sovereign citizen” nationalists, and anarchists. Other domestic threat groups outlined by the FBI assessment include violent animal rights and environmentalist extremists, black separatists, anti- and pro-abortion activists, and Puerto Rican nationalists.

On black separatists, the report warned that “high-profile racially charged crimes or events” could lead to an expansion of black separatist groups. The report identified three such groups as the New Black Panther Party, the Israelite Church of God in Jesus Christ, and the Black Hebrew…

Reddit documents how often police shoot people's dogs

Warning: This story contains disturbing content. 

There are a lot of communities on Reddit where users can complain about cops.

There’s r/Bad_Cop_No_Donut, where people post stories about police abuse.

There’s r/Police_v_Video, which advocates for greater respect for citizens’ rights to shoot video footage of police on the job. And there’s r/copwatch, which, as the name implies, watches cops.

In addition to these subreddits, there is another that tracks an oft-overlooked corner of the growing tide of police militarization recently thrust into the limelight by the heavy-handed police crackdown on protestors in Ferguson. While new stories on the subreddit trickle in at a rate of a few a week, r/puppycide’s efforts to document instances of police fatally shooting people’s pet dogs is positively heartbreaking for any animal…

Skull-Stomping Sacred Cows… | MountainGuerrilla

flag13 Mosby

The “prepper/survivalist/patriot/III %” community has absolutely zero social or political import, because the public face of the community is a bunch of fat, lazy, self-important redneck fucks who are failures in modern society. Despite the guns and macho-blustering bravado, the community poses absolutely zero real threat to the mainstream status quo, and the mainstream status quo recognizes that.  All “they” have to do is point at the idiots—the “crazy gun nuts” and the “whacky survivalists,” and the sheep giggle and join in the finger-pointing and mockery. That’s not going to change, until you begin to be able to convince people that you are not just a string hanging on the fringe.

Until that changes, nothing changes….

Cop Points Gun, Threatens to Kill Citizen in Response to Cell Phone Recording

“I’ll f***ing put a round in your ass so quick”

Source: Patriot Rising

A Florida police officer pointed a gun at a man and threatened to kill him after another was slammed to the ground and handcuffed for recording an officer on his cell phone during a confrontation in Boynton Beach. The footage begins with an officer having a conversation with a group of men in a parked car after a routine traffic stop. When the cop demands to see everybody’s ID, one of the men informs the officer that he is recording the encounter.

“Turn that phone off right now,” states the officer, to which the man responds, “No I’m not intimidated, I have rights, sir, I’m recording your ass,” before unleashing a string of profanities. The officer then walks around to the other side of the car and gives his badge number but refuses to provide his name…

QuickTrip Mart Will Not Re-Build in Ferguson

Well, the fools who destroyed their own neighborhood during riots in Ferguson, Missouri after a teenager was killed by a police officer there have made their own neighborhood into a lesser place. The one convenience store and gas station they had in their area, the one burned down, will not be rebuilt.

The QuickTrip, the famed convenience store that “gentle giant” Michael Brown robbed moments before he was confronted by a Ferguson police officer, was burned to the ground by rioters two weeks ago.

It was the only convenience store in the area. But now, Gateway Pundit reports that the company says it will not bother to rebuild the store.

The company sent gasoline tankers to the site to pump out all the gas in the underground holding tanks and have said it will tear the store down leaving an empty lot.

They say the store was barely breaking even…
