Survival Saturday Sunday 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 on Survival Sunday, we’ll talk about yesterday’s nationwide protests, Comey’s testimony, and yet another “crazy” conspiracy theory that has turned out to be real.

Here’s what happened at the rallies across America yesterday.

What’s for breakfast?


A heaping bowl of American irony.

Because what else can you call it when civil rights groups “denounce” a march against Sharia Law in America? (source)

Anyway, I digress. Yesterday, I warned that a series of anti-Sharia marches across the United States had the potential to become ugly. Here are some of the incidents that occurred:

  • 7 people were arrested in St. Paul, Minnesota. According to a local report, “most” of those arrested were counterprotesters. (source)
  • In Seattle, police deployed pepper spray to break up a fight and arrested 3 people. (source)
  • One speaker in New York was splashed with a noxious substance. (source)
  • Also in New York, one participant had a heart attack and was rushed to the hospital. People who referred (ironically) to themselves as anti-fascists tried to drown out the speakers with bullhorns and noisemakers, saying, ““We’re making so much noise to drown out the fact that they are furthering hate speech. I do not believe they have a right to a platform.” (source)
  • Self-proclaimed white supremacists showed up at several events.  (source)
  • Event organizers insist that the events are anti-Sharia, not anti-Islam. They severed ties with one event organizer in Arkansas due to white-supremacist ties. (source)

Zero Hedge has some more extensive coverage here. All in all, things could have been much worse, and the violence was confined to the rallies.

Comey’s testimony was a big fat letdown for those hoping to impeach Trump.

Shamed erstwhile FBI Director James Comey’s greatly anticipated testimony before Congress was bereft of the expected smoking guns and shocking revelations. All of the people who were preparing Trump’s impeachment paperwork were sorely disappointed. (source)

The high points:

  • He left mainstream sources scrambling after he poked holes in their “Russia did it” plotline. (source) As usual, they managed to mislead the public with headlines that were outright lies. (source)
  • He pinpointed the real obstructors of justice as former President Bill Clinton and former AG Loretta Lynch. (source)

After the testimony, President Trump claimed “total and complete vindication.” (source) On Twitter, of course.

Here’s another “crazy conspiracy” that has turned out to have some merit.

Aaron and Melissa Dykes of Truthstream Media have uncovered some unsettling patents before, but this one takes the prize. They find an old patent from the 60s that uses digital signals to hijack the central nervous system. For real. Watch the video below.

This Week in Preparedness…

If there’s one thing I want to stress above all else when it comes to preparedness, it’s that it isn’t so much what you have as what you know.

Sure, it’s a good idea to have water filters and food supplies to see you through a blackout, but even more vital is knowledge, skills, and the right mindset.

That’s why I have two recommendations for you this week.

#1 The 2017 Prepper Bundle

In this year’s prepper bundle, you can increase your library by a whopping 30 resources for only $29.97. The bundle includes ebooks and courses by some of your favorite preparedness experts.

  • Thanks Daisy. Now that you’re living in the city, do you miss the out-of-the-city-limits, country life?
    Will you go back?
    I’m out of the city limits and in the country but, if I had my way, I’d live further out, off the grid…Far enough away from city lights to be able to see the stars and the milky way at night, like we used to be able to do before it got so populated here.
    You take care, now. And thanks again for all your great writings.

    • We’re on the edge of town in an older suburban area. We only have a (very nice) neighbor on one side and across the street is a nature preserve. It’s a much smaller lot than we’re used to but aside from that, the adjustment hasn’t been too bad. We are enjoying it thus far, but I’ll probably get a bit more land later. This is a temporary spot while my daughter is in vocational school – next year she’ll be doing an apprenticeship. Who knows where we’ll end up? 🙂
