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

Some weeks, I run out of words for the ridiculous things that I see in the news, and this is one of those weeks. It took me almost as long to come up with a headline as it did to compile my Survival Saturday post. You know when you really don’t want to get out of bed and you keep hitting snooze? That’s the scene in America. The soporific effect of political correctness and the hum of the mainstream is just too much for most people to handle. So Americans hire convicted extremists and put them in positions of power. Americans admire a liar, a traitor, and a brain-injured political prostitute so much that they want to elect her to the highest office in the land. Most Americans have no idea we aren’t actually free at all, because our cages are so gilded, plush, and comfortable. They just hit snooze, pull up their cozy covers, and drift back into their false dream world.

But then there’s you.

Although we’re in the minority, I’m so thankful for the thousands of you who want the truth and are willing to recognize it, accept it, and act on it. I’m heartened to see that more people are joining us every day. The number of us who think critically and look at all sides of the information that is presented, rather than accepting it at face value, is growing.  (And definitely double-check the information I present – hey, I’m definitely not infallible!) We hear the alarm clock, we get up, and we take care of business. I truly love hearing from you in the comments, because we are a community. We’ve created our own haven of like-minded people here on this little corner of the internet. I love ya.

George Washington U Hires Convicted Muslim Extremist to Fight Muslim Extremism

Years ago, there was a young man who went by the name of  Younus Abdullah Muhammad, although his real name was Jesse Morton. Muhammed/Morton  ran a website called Revolution Muslim for four years and recruited numerous people to the al Qaeda cause. He inspired his followers to do attempt all manner of radical things, like plotting to fly explosives into the Pentagon by remote controlled plane, concocting a failed plot to blow up a shopping mall, and trying to kill a Swedish cartoonist who made a satirical cartoon of the Prophet Muhammed. Finally, Morton/Muhammed was sentenced to more than 11 years in prison for threatening the South Park writers because they dressed the Prophet Muhammed up in a bear suit in a cartoon. (He even published their home addresses on his website and urged his followers to kill them.) Of the conviction, US Attorney Neil MacBride said:

“Jesse Morton sought to inspire Muslims to engage in terrorism by providing doctrinal justification for violence against civilians in the name of Islam…His crimes not only put people’s lives forever in danger, but they also chilled free expression out of fear of retaliation by violent terrorists.”

Poor Morton actually became a Muslim by accident.During his drug-dealing days, he was evading police when he and his friend ran into an abandoned building, where he did as his friend told him and repeated words in Arabic that turned out to be a proclamation of the Muslim faith. When the police didn’t arrest him, he decided it was a sign  and converted to Islam.

But now he’s out of prison, he’s really sorry, and all he wants to do is help.

So George Washington University has hired him to research extremism.

Even if he has actually gone legit, this could still be a massive problem for the university because he would be committing the heinous crime of apostasy, which is punishable by death.

The Hadith on leaving Islam states:

The Prophet Muhammad is recorded as saying: “Whosoever changes his religion, kill him,” a statement that is often used to support the death penalty for Muslims who leave Islam. But other verses in the Hadith suggest changing one’s religion alone is not enough to warrant execution. In fact, the IRFI reports that that penalty only applies to those who leave the faith and then are found to be working against the interests of the Islamic state.


What could possibly go wrong? I could certainly see some collateral damage happening with this ill-conceived idea. Read more about how easily something like this could turn into Jihad from within.

The Hillary Clinton Email Hits Just Keep on Coming

If you could win an award for the most email screw-ups on the whole planet ever in the whole history of email, Hillary Clinton would have gone quadruple platinum by now.

How on earth is anyone supporting this ridiculous woman? For a moment, I’m not even talking about the fact that she literally whored out her services by giving favors as Secretary of State to those who made “donations” to her foundation and “hired” her husband to speak for a quarter of  a million dollars. Not even that. This.

If we want to have a woman president, shouldn’t it be someone we could be proud of? Not some doddering, brain-injured woman who can’t remember important things, lies about having public seizures, and repeatedly risks national security because she’s not quite savvy enough to protect her tens of thousands of sensitive emails?

This week it has come to light that:

Yet somehow, this awful woman still has a huge number of rabid supporters.  They should be forced to read this book written by a software analyst and attorney, who breaks down the whole ugly scandal into small words that even the most fervent Hillaryite should be able to comprehend.

Are you kidding me, people? Even a hardcore liberal, if they gave it any actual logical thought, could not think that this is an honorable person who will do what is best for anyone except Hillary Clinton. Those who voluntarily choose to support her deserve whatever they get if she’s elected.

Meet Our Owners

We all know that even though everyone likes to make it seem like we have freedom, choices, and votes that matter, corporate and government interests really run the show. The fact is, they “own” everything. Even the things we supposedly own ourselves, like homes, cars, and other types of property, are taxed, ruled, and regulated (at our cost, of course). The predatory practices of the banking system ensure that poor people remain poor while the executives get rich off of their customer’s poverty – which they’re worsening.

Check out this disturbing video – the ownership is even more narrow than you may have thought. It’s a handful of banks, and congressional records from 1974 prove that they’ve been driving everything in America.

“According to a 1974 Senate report, corporate ownership has virtually taken over control of every major media outlet, energy company and industry. The largest 32 banks have power in combined stocks, shareholder voting, boards and directorships and more… this is an oligarchy.”

Warning: You’ll never look at things the same way again if you watch this video. But if you want to know the truth, here’s your red pill.

Holy cow, right? It’s what we all suspected, but right there in black and white.

  • I think you might be wearing the aluminum foil hat just a little too tightly this weekend, Daisy. I really love all of your prepping info and education materials and recipes, but all of this political and conspiracy stuff is pretty extremist. I don’t care for either presidential candidate, but I have to choose the lesser of 2 evils or the orangutan is going to get us nuked. Fear over THE MORON — who found it appropriate to talk to the world about the size of his penis — becoming President is one of the main reasons I began prepping in the first place, considering how he loves to incite violence at his own rallies, and spouts off nonsense all the time. We may not agree on politics, but the depth of your conspiracy stuff scares me…not for the reason you think…but because there are people uneducated and ignorant enough to believe it just because it is in print. Yes, we all need to be less like sheep and read everything with a grain of salt, and CNN editing a aired video of a woman to make her look like a hero instead of inciting a riot (which is what she really was doing) is abominable, but sheesh.

    Yes, there are a lot of unprepared people out there in FL and south GA and LA given the recent storms; why can’t that be today’s focus? Let’s not incite rioting in the other direction. Can we just focus on prepping skills and cooking and canning and helping each other instead of trying to fuel a fire?

    I’m no mainstreamer, believe me. But this is pushing my buttons. I think I’ll be skipping these Saturday rantings from now on.

    Any Amy

    • Hi Amy! As always, I appreciate your input. 🙂 I’m a news junkie so I enjoy writing my Saturday rantings quite a bit. (I kind of found this week’s article to be a bit milder than most of the ones I do on Saturdays.)

      I do hope that you’ll find other articles you enjoy midweek.

      Have a great weekend!


  • ‘Any Amy’ sure does know how to sling around all the establishment created loaded phrases and accusations to marginalize dissent. I was impressed.

    I wonder if she’s ever considered these perspectives?:

    The Election Has Been Hacked: The Dismal Reality of Having No Real Electoral Choices – By John W. Whitehead

    “Free election of masters does not abolish the masters or the slaves.” ― Herbert Marcuse

    The outcome is a foregone conclusion: the police state will win and “we the people” will lose.” …


    The Lesser of Two Evils – By Ellen Finnigan

    “If you are choosing the lesser evil, it is still evil, and you are registering your consent to that evil.” …


    The Lesser of Two Evils Rarely Is – By Gary North

    “There is a lesson here: voting for the lesser of two evils generally produces greater evil.” …


    The Lesser of Two Evils – By L. Neil Smith

    “If Donald Trump is a bad guy—and, given his sticky-fingered habits with other people’s real estate, I have no doubt whatever that he is, at more levels than one—then comparing the New York Mercantilist King to the former Worst Lady is more than a little like comparing Mister Smee (Captain Hook’s bumbling henchman) to Hannibal Lecter.

    If you think I exaggerate, I urge you to consider: Mr. Smee killed nobody, as far as I remember […]

    I’m sure that if you looked, you could find somebody who compares Barney the Dinosaur to Hitler. To my admittedly limited knowledge, Donald Trump, the obnoxious orange guy with the weird hair, the National Used Car Salesman, has never sent anybody to an extermination camp. Hillary, on the other hand, if we’re to credit our nearly thirty years of political experience with her, is a traveling extermination camp all by herself. […]

    And so I’ve made my mind up, and I can’t say that I’m happy about it, but I’m voting for survival. I’ll refer you to my essay “Why Did It Have To Be Guns?” Rather than spend the few years I have left in a FEMA camp, I’ll take my chances on the used car salesman.” …


    And, yeah, she does seem kind of like a mainstreamer, of the social justice snowflake variety. Jmho.

    Also, I sure feel slighted, she wants to just focus on prepping skills and cooking and canning and helping each other, yet Not One word about my comment about pesticides and herbicides in organic compost! Yea, nary a nod about the possibility of lower real estate prices and rents. …Exactly what kind of ‘helping’ is she about? The distracting kind? And, only the distracting kind?

    “Gee Wally, let’s focus on cooking and canning and nothing much else so we can ignore the big picture and pretend like it doesn’t affect us.” Let alone discuss how the big picture might affect HOW a person might prep. Talk about hitting the Snooze button.

    One last link:

    What will Happen After November 8th? – The Burning Platform

    “But what happens after the election? It matters not who wins. If Hillary Clinton is elected, by hook or by crook, the mass movement harnessed by Donald Trump will be free to respond to physical attacks. If Donald Trump wins the Presidency, there will similarly be no reason to continue to endure physical attacks and humiliations by the street thugs of the Democrats. Whether Trump or Hillary Clinton is in the White House, there will be no reason to hold back.” …


  • i really enjoy your saturday posts. as a mom of soon-to-be 6, i feel the need to take responsibility for the lives the Lord has entrusted me with. i have a large extended family who are Clinton supporters, fear or hate guns, and think nothing bad could ever happen to them. my husband and i are on the same page, as well as much of my husbands family. i have take to carrying edc bag with me with medical supplies ( that i know how to use), water purifiers, firestarting equipment, food, etc. its been useful on many occasions and my husbands family knows i have whatever they need for injuries or illnesses. the neices think its so cool ” im like a doctor!”
    anyway, keep up the good work, i enjoy your articles and opinions. makes me feel like im not alone 🙂

  • In case anyone “out there” is as much of an “amateur” HISTORIAN, as I am, I’m including this link, that will reveal many hidden facts of HISTORY, for anyone with a true love of HISTORY:

    “A Message To The Globalist Scum: Your Days Are Numbered”

    Be sure to read all the comments after the video at the link above. Click on all the links. Read/view/listen to all content.

  • [A bit of weird coincidence in light of the comment above:]

    I have a link to an historical article with a diagram I’d like to share with you all. I saw this diagram in 2007 and I’ve been searching for the link ever since – tonight – I found it!

    “The Vampire Economy, by Guenter Reimann (1939) is a rare and wonderful thing: a detailed account of how the Nazis crushed the private sector and hamstrung the economy with vast regulations, violations of property rights, inflation, price controls, and taxes.” …


    Go look at the simple flow-chart and see if it’s maybe something which you can use to wake up your friends?

    The link to the PDF ain’t half-bad, neither. That is, if you’re into knowing how the apparatus of the bamboozlers works to rip you off and deceive you.

  • As a response to “Will September 30th Be the Day Freedom on the Internet Dies?” (since daisyluther.com does not seem to have a working comment system): If you worry about freedom of expression on the internet then maybe you should try using the tor network. Many of you may already know about it but I like to spread the word since I do like the Tor network a lot. So for those of you who have not yet heard about it, the Tor network is a network where there is no central authority. So anyone can make a website and create a domain name for himself. Also you can browse it anonymously.

    Many call it the dark web but personally i do not think that name is appropriate because the Tor network is just like the Internet except it is not controlled by a central authority and people are free and anonymous there. If having freedom scares you then you might find the name dark web more appropriate but really the name free web is much more appropriate.

    Too bad that most people are on the Internet instead of the Tor network. Imagine how liberating it would be to have the Tor network be the place where people go to for their day-to-day browsing. That would mean more freedom of expression and less big brother uncle sam watching our every move.

    But instead of highlighting the possibilities of the Free Web people spread FUD about it and call it the Dark Web.

  • PSA: Tor exposes all traffic by design. Do NOT use it for normal web browsing.


    ‘Just using Tor isn’t enough to keep you safe in all cases. […]
    Tor’s only as strong as its browser, which has had security flaws before’ …
