Survival Saturday is a round-up of the week’s news and resources for folks who are interested in being prepared.
This Week in the News
This week has been a busy one in the news, what with a historical vote in the UK, America’s own presidential race, and more examples of the court-supported end of due process.
Brexit Starts the Tumbling Dominos in Europe
As the world looked on, the United Kingdom voted narrowly to leave the European Union last week. The departure has already caused shockwaves through the economy in the UK, as the value of the pound immediately (and expectedly) began to plummet. Analysts have warned that citizens can expect a dramatic increase in food costs since a majority of the island’s edibles come from mainland Europe. The export industry could also take a serious blow since many of the trade agreements that were in place were due to involvement in the EU.
But that’s only one side – according to Zero Hedge, the UK was actually the best performing market in Europe the day after the vote. The real losers were the 400 richest people in the world, who lost $127.4 billion dollars the day after the vote. You know – those rich people who control the media and the scaremongering to manipulate the peons.
Despite the threat of imminent financial difficulty, several other countries may follow in the UK’s footsteps. Also discussing referendums are the Netherlands , Czechoslovakia, France, Sweden, and Denmark. Greece has wanted out for a long time. Is this the beginning of the end of the European Union?
There is one overriding reason that all of these countries are now interested in breaking away despite the economic ramifications: unfettered immigration. Islamic terror is now the daily norm in Europe. Refugees are the new Trojan horse.
Anyone who has paid attention to the news is aware that a huge number of refugees from Islamic countries have come in and wrought havoc in the form of violent crimes against local women, blatant disrespect of the cultures of the countries that have taken them in, and a complete refusal to assimilate. It has become a cultural disaster.
Before we open our own doors and invite in an influx, we must ask ourselves, “How bad must it be for these countries to willingly accept the devaluation of their own economies just to break free of the obligation to take in these immigrants?” The recent mass shootings here in the US were all allegedly done by people pledging their allegiance to Islam. There have already been hushed reports of a little girl in Idaho who was, at knifepoint, raped and urinated on by three Syrian refugee boys. These reports were quickly denied by officials but many believe that is a cover-up.
The Death of Due Process
Has anybody else noticed that the 14th Amendment is basically dead? Ruling after ruling allows officials to ignore due process, even though it is supposedly guaranteed by our Constitution. (Refresher:…nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.)
Here are just seven recent examples:
- It has been ruled that the FBI can hack computers without a warrant.
- In Oklahoma, cops have a device that can empty the bank accounts of people without any conviction – only on the suspicion of a crime.
- Last year the Supreme Court upheld a ruling that police could search your home without a warrant.
- An astounding 95% of all inmates in America never got a trial.
- This week, the Supreme Court decided that anyone suspected of DUI was subject to a breathalyzer test without a warrant.
- The FBI can collect home IP addresses of website users without a warrant.
- In California, if someone reports that you might be mentally unstable, your guns can be seized without a trial. (Think about the potential for abuse here!)
Land of the free. Yeah. That’s us.
Hillary Clinton must be furious.
And by furious, I mean I wonder if she is planning to put out a hit on Donald Trump and three best-selling authors who have told the world about her crimes, corruption, and unethical behavior.
Trump’s speech in New York City on the 22nd called out Clinton on many of her crimes. Rarely have I heard them enumerated so eloquently. Here are a few choice quotes from the transcript:
Hillary Clinton who, as most people know, is a world-class liar –
just look at her pathetic email and server statements, or her phony landing in Bosnia where she said she was under attack but the attack turned out to be young girls handing her flowers, a total self-serving lie.
Hillary Clinton has perfected the politics of personal profit and theft.
She ran the State Department like her own personal hedge fund – doing favors for oppressive regimes, and many others, in exchange for cash.
Then, when she left, she made $21.6 million giving speeches to Wall Street banks and other special interests – in less than 2 years – secret speeches that she does not want to reveal to the public.
Together, she and Bill made $153 million giving speeches to lobbyists, CEOs, and foreign governments in the years since 2001.
They totally own her, and that will never change.
I have visited the cities and towns across America and seen the devastation caused by the trade policies of Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton supported Bill Clinton’s disastrous NAFTA, just like she supported China’s entrance into the World Trade Organization.
We’ve lost nearly one-third of our manufacturing jobs since these two Hillary-backed agreements were signed.
Our trade deficit with China soared 40% during Hillary Clinton’s time as Secretary of State — a disgraceful performance for which she should not be congratulated, but rather scorned.
Then she let China steal hundreds of billions of dollars in our intellectual property – a crime which is continuing to this day.
Hillary Clinton gave China millions of our best jobs, and effectively let China completely rebuild itself.
In return, Hillary Clinton got rich!
The book Clinton Cash, by Peter Schweitzer, documents how Bill and Hillary used the State Department to enrich their family at America’s expense.
She gets rich making you poor.
The Hillary Clinton foreign policy has cost America thousands of lives and trillions of dollars – and unleashed ISIS across the world.
No Secretary of State has been more wrong, more often, and in more places than Hillary Clinton.
Her decisions spread death, destruction and terrorism everywhere she touched.
Among the victims is our late Ambassador, Chris Stevens. He was left helpless to die as Hillary Clinton soundly slept in her bed — that’s right, when the phone rang at
3 o’clock in the morning, she was sleeping.
Ambassador Stevens and his staff in Libya made hundreds of requests for security.
Hillary Clinton’s State Department refused them all.
She started the war that put him in Libya, denied him the security he asked for, then left him there to die.
Perhaps the most terrifying thing about Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy is that she refuses to acknowledge the threat posed by Radical Islam.
In fact, Hillary Clinton supports a radical 550% increase in Syrian refugees coming into the United States, and that’s an increase over President Obama’s already very high number.
Under her plan, we would admit hundreds of thousands of refugees from the most dangerous countries on Earth – with no way to screen who they are or what they believe.
Already, hundreds of recent immigrants and their children have been convicted of terrorist activity inside the U.S.
The father of the Orlando shooter was a Taliban supporter from Afghanistan, one of the
most repressive anti-gay and anti-women regimes on Earth.
I only want to admit people who share our values and love our people.
Hillary Clinton wants to bring in people who believe women should be enslaved
and gays put to death.
Maybe her motivation lies among the more than 1,000 foreign donations Hillary failed to disclose while at the State Department.
Hillary Clinton may be the most corrupt person ever to seek the presidency.
And there’s more…much more. Evidence for these accusations can be found in three best-selling books that were recently published about Clinton. The first is Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich. The second is Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses His Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate, another best-seller in which the author tells us about the explosive rages and the secrets during the Clintons tie in the White House. Finally, Dolly Kyle goes back to the Clinton’s days in the Governor’s Mansion in Arkansas. Kyle, a childhood friend of Bill Clinton, claims that when she became a political liability that they threatened to destroy her. Her #1 New Release book, Hillary: The Other Woman, outlines the hocus pocus used by the Clintons to make unsavory stories disappear. I’ve ordered all three. Hellooo, Watchlist.
As much as I vowed to stay out of politics during this presidential election, one thing is true. We simply can’t allow such a corrupt and evil human being as Hillary Clinton to become the President of the United States. In good conscience, none of us can sit idly by and say nothing about her, especially while the mainstream media is so blatantly biased on her behalf that they black out any positive coverage of Bernie Sanders or Donald Trump. (And check back a couple of weeks ago, when I posted this video that proves Google has adjusted the search algorithms to show only positive stuff about Hillary.) If some folks just want to see a woman president, they really don’t want it to be a heinous woman who will lead us greedily into WW3. Because trust me, having such a horrible specimen elected will do absolutely nothing to further the interests of women. What an absolutely horrid example of anyone with girl-parts.
Anyway, back to the speech, for which Trump’s speechwriter deserves an epic bonus. Here’s the whole shebang. It really is worth a listen to learn the true depths of Hillary Clinton’s lack of both character and integrity.
This week in preparedness…
This week, an epic heatwave began to sweep the country with temperatures exceeding 110 degrees in many areas. Here are some tips for handling the heat.

Despite the lack of fanfare in the media, for many North Americans, the collapse is here. In homes across the country, the struggle to survive has already begun. And it isn’t what you think. This isn’t relegated to only lower income neighborhoods. As an article from a Cincinnati new station stated, “Hunger doesn’t know a zipcode.”
For many people who were formerly financially comfortable, the economic collapse has already happened, in the form of a job loss, hours that have been cut back due to Obamacare requirements for employers, an exorbitant medical bill or other crushing debt, or simply an inflation rate that has outstripped your pay increases. Despite all of the warnings, many people are still going to be absolutely blindsided.
