And perhaps, future. Back in the Summer, I was recruited to write two original articles about guns and gun control for Freedom Prepper, those being the first original content pieces of any substance in a long time. I, during the … unpleasantness of August… may have forgotten to link those here. At FP, they were the most popular articles in about two years.
All of this led to a conversation with Scott about the future. With FP, as in general, nothing is certain. But, there is a slight possibility of a return, particularly as to prepper-worthy news. If it happens, I’ll be linking here. And, if you’re into the preps – NOW IS THE TIME! If not, then, you know…
Freedom Prepper rides again!
Hello, Freedom Prepper friends! Long time, no post here. It’s good to be back, except that these are very sad circumstances. Over the weekend, just like many of you, Scott and I discussed the tragic events from El Paso and Dayton. As of my last checking, on the morning that I wrote this up, twenty-nine people are dead and God knows how many are wounded. Terrible. At FP, we’re two things: we’re most strongly pro-Second Amendment, and we’re also anti unlawful violence. As are you, dear readers. We’re also into the truth about these matters.
And, I have to say at this point, that the truth is missing (or certainly appears to be missing) from both of these shooting stories. There’s no doubt it happened and that innocent people were killed. But, there’s something behind it. Something is off. Badly off – like poor scripting. As with most of these shootings, there remain various inconsistencies and unanswered questions. With the Dayton story, I have strong reason to doubt the official narrative. If fact, I almost always doubt the official version of most stories, as told by the government and the media. You should too. But, today, we’re here to discuss the shooting numbers only.
Scott posed the following to me on Sunday, the Fourth: “Anyway they are reporting that [Dayton] is the 250th mass shooting in the US, would you be interested in writing an article about that statistic, spelling out the truths from the non-truths, to see what the real number is versus the media driven number?”
Yes, of course, I would! But, again, I’m only working with the reported stats. I just finished a column for another publication about some ridiculous improbabilities with the Dayton shooter. All of those aside, was he the 250th mass shooter in America in 2019? The answer is the old lawyer’s favorite: “It depends.”
Maybe, at least once. I’ve been recruited to write up an explanation for FP of where all these mass shooting numbers come from. I’ve also added a short bit on the same subject to the week’s TPC column. Those, here, later.
For now, the Dayton, Ohio shooter was (yet another) satanist/atheist wacko. Look for the MSM to be ALL over that. Not. I might even do a new YT vid on that – to get all my atheist “friends” worked up. The last Texas atheist shooter had them out in droves – only video of mine ever voted down.
Satanists and atheists: send them back!
Greetings, prepper peeps. Some good news and a whisper.
The rumor first: something may be happening with Freedom Prepper (emphasis on “something” and “may be”). This would be something beyond my posting a new Venezuela video.
The great news! My friend, Samantha Biggers, one of the best prepper writers out there, has a new (to me) site:
It’s a place for better ideas about all things prepping, which, now, is more important than ever. Browse around. She even has a link to my craziness.
Today’s Prepper News Weekly, with a cool interview about Bee Keeping (we aim to please around here…):
Many thanks to Mr. Michael Rigdon, a really cool and dangerous man.
In other news! I just embarked on my most unusual and ambitious venture yet. I applied for a part in an upcoming Clint Eastwood movie. Everyone knows my acting skills (as demonstrated in so many low-budget YT vids) and my deep love of film and popular culture… Heck, it’s Eastwood. When I’m famous, you can say you doubted it….
See, this is a “serious” headshot. Selfie. Shaggy.
Y’all have a good Friday!
First, limping along with the news at FP:
And, a welcome of sorts to the wonderful readers over at The Piedmont Chronicles:
A few remain hidden but the YT editor tells me that last one is No. 100. Wow…
Additional thought of the day: Reverse Mortgages:
Tom Selleck is hawking reverse mortgages, equity loans aimed at seniors. He says older Americans are woefully under-saved (they are) and the solution is a loan on the equity! Why not?! These things have been around a while. And all that while I’ve thought the smelled funny.
Without much research, my gut reaction is that this is a terrible idea. It might be helpful to some at times, but it looks like, feels like the end of the debt-ification game. Literally, the banksters grab up the last of the assets, issuing new debt in its place. Cannot be a good idea for the economy as a whole: ownership only by the financial elite only benefits the financial elite. Beware.
Some things we can all learn from this, turning tragedy into positive reinforcement. From FP today:
Even better now that the shooter is in custody. Many thanks to a hero.
