Ways to Combat News-Overload Induced Worry, by Elli O.

by SurvivalBlog Contributor in SurvivalBlog.com at 03:03, Thursday, 29 September

During these times of instability and unc+ertainty both in our country and throughout the world, it is easy to become concerned about our future. In fact, if you are a Pollyanna who is not concerned about the future, then your head is probably in the sand dunes of Egypt and you are not being realistic in your thinking. But these are unstable times. There is constantly a threat to our way of life and the peace to which we have become accustomed. Whether it be man-made or by nature, ranging from the international conflicts (pick any two countries- Russia and …

Do not become slaves of men

by TPOL Nathan in The Price of Liberty at 20:00, Wednesday, 28 September

A guest commentary by Stuart Hall, originally published at Pistos.com, 24 SEP 2022. Primarily religious (christian) in content, it applies to all lovers of liberty, christian or not. TPOL has done some stylistic editing and made some further comments in brackets. [..]

Were you called while a slave? Do not worry about it; but if you are able also to become free, rather do that. For he who was called in the Lord while a slave, is the Lord’s freedman; likewise he who was called while free, is Christ’s slave. You were bought with a price; do not become slaves of men” (1st Corinthians 7:21-23).

At first glance, these words may seem to have no practical value for us [in 21st Century America especially for non-christians]. But look a little closer.

The chief problem with being a slave was that it put you into a position in which it was difficult to be a Christian. There are many other circumstances, however, that might make it equally difficult. Paul’s teaching would apply in principle to any...

They Just Keep Pushing

“I admit that political polarization may bring it all to an end, we’re going to have a hung election and a civil war,” Bill Gates recently said in the keynote conversation at this year’s Forbes 400 Summit on Philanthropy.

Biden, in front of Independence Hall accused 74 million American citizens of being “semi-fascists” and called for unity.

FBI whistleblowers are coming out and saying that the Bureau is falsifying “extremism” charges against ordinary Americans. (We know they have no compunction about lying to FISA courts or to get into safety deposit boxes, protecting Hunter Biden and Hillary Clinton.)

The government is trying to get banks and credit card companies to stop providing services to licensed gun dealers. And, of course, they’re trying to ban “assault weapons” again.

I’ve got a couple of videos I’d like you to watch. One from about 1996 with Thomas Sowell, and one very recently with Victor Davis Hanson.

St. Javelin

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 16:57, Wednesday, 28 September

Via email from PKoning:

Today’s WSJ had an article about a group that’s ridiculing Putin online, calling itself “NAFO”.  The article came with a photo of a mural on a building depicting “St. Javelin”.  It reminded me of an article a week earlier, describing the “ragtag army” that saved Kyiv from the invading Russians.  One of the soldiers featured in that article is a lady anti-tank missile operator, who in civilian life was a journalist.

As depicted in popular media:

It strikes me that the evil judged at Nuremberg of generally well-educated people (often Ph.D.s) sets a model for after the Elites lose power.  The number of children and teenagers seduced into hormonal abuse and mutilating surgeries screams for justice to be exacted on the well-educated people who pursued this evil to make money and make themselves feel normal.

Developing World Problems in the USA

by Greg Ellifritz in Active Response Training at 18:46, Wednesday, 28 September

I was once on a snorkeling excursion in Aruba.  On the boat, I heard an older couple speaking Spanish with a very distinctive Argentine accent.  They were the only Spanish speakers on the boat and seemed a bit confused with the captain’s English snorkeling instructions.

 

I introduced myself in Spanish and translated the captain’s instruction for the couple.  We began chatting in Spanish.  They told me they lived in Bariloche, Argentina, but were trying to get residency in the United States.  Bariloche is a beautiful, high dollar ski resort town.  I had visited the city on past trips to South America.

 

The couple wanted to move to inland Florida.  I was kind of confused.  I asked them why they would leave their beautiful home to live in a Florida swamp.  The woman replied “Because everything works in America.” 

 

She went on to describe how in Argentina, none of the utilities worked reliably, food supplies were inconsistent,  the roads were bad, and  government corruption was rampant.  She said that as the couple aged they le...

Carbon Dioxide Seems to Be Making Trees Grow Faster, Scientists Say

Amid serious concerns about the climate effects of carbon dioxide, scientists have discovered something intriguing — that trees appear to be growing faster and larger as levels of the compound rise.

In a press release, environmental researchers at Ohio State University claimed that the rate and size at which forests are growing may already be counteracting the worst effects of climate change.

“Forests are taking carbon out of the atmosphere at a rate of about 13 percent of our gross emissions,” Brent Sohngen, co-author of the school’s study published recently in Nature Communications and OSU professor of environmental and resource economics, said. “While we’re putting billions of tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, we’re actually takin...

Question for You Pipeline Engineers

by Clayton Cramer in Clayton Cramer. at 10:46, Wednesday, 28 September

 The variety of experience and knowledge of my readers never ceases to amaze me.  Do pipelines have stop-loss valves?

A->B->C

Idiots blow up pipeline at B.  

If I designed pipelines, I would have sensors at A and C to detect sudden losses of pressure and close the pipeline at A and C, both to prevent loss of valuable merchandise and pollution from the hole at B.  Also, for underwater pipelines, this reduces water pressure on sections that would now depressurize and be collapsed by the water pressure.


Nord Stream Pipeline leaking into the Baltic Sea.

CNBC:

Nord Stream AG, the operator of the two pipelines, said Tuesday that three known gas leaks caused “unprecedented” damage. The company added that it was not possible to determine when the gas network system’s capacity would be restored.

Fuel

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 11:18, Wednesday, 28 September

 This morning I threw the gas cans in the truck and headed down to Holloway General where I get my small engine fuel.  They are one of the local stores that sell non-ethanol, and they are just up the road, so it's convenient. Nine gallons of non-ethanol cost me $34.55, which ain't too terrible.  4.5 gallons of diesel cost me $23.00.

The midterm elections are coming up pretty soon, and ol' Joe is doing everything he can to lower fuel prices.  I don't think it is going to do him any good.

I remember what fuel cost me on the final day of the previous administration and as far as I am concerned, one penny over that price is total failure for a sitting president, all things being equal, and all things are not equal. Fuel is up, crime is up, food prices are up,   The stock market is in bear territory.  This country is in a helluva mess, and it is the Democrats fault.

VHS-1: Croatia Copies the FAMAS (But Not Really)

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 09:27, Wednesday, 28 September

The VHS-1 was heavily influenced by the French FAMAS, albeit with a short stroke gas piston operating system. Early development began in the late 1990s with the prototype designs we looked in over the past few weeks, and the VHS-1 itself really emerged between 2003 and 2005. It was formally announced in 2005, and after formal testing by the Croatian military it was adopted, and the first military deliveries arrived in 2007.

In addition, the VHS-1 was exported to Kurdistan and the Iraqi Army. Two versions were made, the D1 with a long barrel and the K1 with a short barrel, and the upper assembly could be had with either iron sights (much like the FAMAS iron sights) or an integrated optic similar to the G36 and Steyr AUG. In total about 20,000 were manufactured, including a run of 40 made as civilian semiautomatic-only rifles for the Hungarian sporting market.

Editor’s Introductory Note: This article by Brandon Smith was originally published at Birch Gold Group.  It is reposted with permission. — Though the situation is ever changing, currently the Russian government has announced an official shutdown of all natural gas exports to Europe through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline and plans to maintain the shutdown until the EU ends its economic sanctions over the war in Ukraine. This means that around 40% of Europe’s energy resources are now gone, with supply chain issues surrounding the other 60% and prices skyrocketing for households and businesses. Back in March in an article …

The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

by James Wesley Rawles in SurvivalBlog.com at 03:01, Wednesday, 28 September

“The choice facing the nation is between two totally different ways of life. And what a prize we have to fight for: no less than the chance to banish from our land the dark, divisive clouds of Marxist socialism and bring together men and women from all walks of life who share a belief in freedom.” – Margaret Thatcher

Clayton Cramer has the story.

The public policy error, I mean.  Hoodbhoy v. D.C. (D.C.App. 2022):

Hilman Jordan shot and killed Jawaid Bhutto in the parking lot of the condominium building where they both lived. At the time of the attack, Jordan was on conditional release from Saint Elizabeths Hospital, where he had been committed two decades earlier following his acquittal, by reason of insanity, on a first-degree murder charge. Jordan’s release from Saint Elizabeths was granted via a Superior Court order requiring that both Jordan and the D.C. Department of Behavioral Health (“DBH”) comply with certain conditions, intended to ensure Jordan would “not pose a danger to himself or others” while living in the community. In the months preceding the shooting, DBH failed to perform several of the duties required by the court order. Most significantly, after Jordan tested positive on multiple drug tests, DBH failed to return him to Saint Elizabeths or even inform the Superior Court of those results.

What Size Nukes Might Russia Send?

by Clayton Cramer in Clayton Cramer. at 15:49, Tuesday, 27 September

9/22/22 SkyNews says Russian ICBMs carry 300 to 800 kiloton warheads.  NukeMap says light blast damage to about 11 miles.  I used the air burst option because that maximizes blast damage.  I am thinking that the master bedroom closet might be the best choice.  There are no windows.  The additional walls and distance from any exterior radiation sources.  Ground radiation to my surprise exceeds roof radiation.  (There is a limited amount of fallout piled on the roof.  Fallout outside can be pouring radiation at you from hundreds of feet away.)  


Use the shelves in the closet to stack ammunition.   They will not hold entire cases, but lots of individual boxes will not strain the shelves.  The laundry room appliances provide coverage from the west.  Moving more furniture to the bedroom to provide protection from the east.  Ditto for all canned foods.  The water heater helps from the north. Distance alone...

We never get tired of watching movies, but we often watch scenes play out that aren’t realistic.

Great Success in the Gear Box!

I checked the Taurus in a couple K-frame rigs from my Big Box o' Holsters, a Bianchi #3S Pistol Pocket and an old, long-discontinued DeSantis convertible OWB/IWB rig, as well as with HKS #10A speedloaders, and it fits them all.


Relatedly, for some reason I seem to still have a metric buttload of .357 L-frame speedloaders, including lots of Safariland esoterica, and I don't think I've owned a medium-bore L-frame since the GWB administration. Obviously this is my cue to finally buy that 586 L-comp of my dreams.

Quote of the day—Chip Brownlee

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 09:00, Tuesday, 27 September

People convicted of violent felonies were not prohibited from purchasing or possessing guns under federal law until 1934. It wasn’t until the 1968 Gun Control Act when that prohibition was extended to all felonies and to people with a history of drug abuse or mental illness. Background checks were not mandated by federal law until 1994, and the National Instant Criminal Background Check System didn’t start until 1998. States didn’t begin criminalizing domestic violence until the 1900s, and federal law didn’t prohibit people convicted of domestic violence misdemeanor offenses from getting a firearm until 1996.

Arrest the parents....

by Midwest Chick in Non-Original Rants at 07:37, Tuesday, 27 September

I am not sure when it became de rigueur for liberal parents to take their children to drag shows, but it does seem to be a thing now.  And they video it.

So you have videos of little girls running their hands over the crotch area of a man dressed as the Little Mermaid.  And worse.

So here's the main question--what is the difference, really, between these actions and kiddie porn or child trafficking? The fact that the men in question are dressed up like cartoon characters or women?  It's a trap just like the vans with 'Free Candy' were back in the day.

The fact is that there are grown men both allowing themselves to be touched in an intimate manner by children and are behaving in a sexual manner in front of children.  Their parents are putting those children in a situation where this happens.  Both are culpable and all should be arrested.

It's truly only a matter of degree and once a child is sexualized in...

“What rifles were between the M1 Garand and the M14? I went through Basic with an M14 and I know the M15 was supposed to be a BAR replacement. Google doesn’t really find anything on the M2 – M13 rifles.”

The Army had rifle for much more than just standard infantry use. They also adopted rifles for marksmanship practice, sub caliber firing of artillery, pilot survival (as the Army Air Force), and spotting. Here are the M2 through M13:

M2 – Springfield .22LR training rifle (updated from the M1922) (https://youtu.be/kOc23X5IeEM)

The Supreme Court of the Public Broadcasting System?

by Carl Bussjaeger in The Zelman Partisans at 08:29, Tuesday, 27 September

A few days ago, I ran across a column by a Terrence Cummings, “COMMENTARY: But for Rittenhouse doctrine.” It was the usual garbage you’d expect from victim disarmers. I didn’t — at the time — think it worth a response column, but I did write to Cummings.

“But for the Rittenhouse doctrine, you would think you would have a right to take your AR-15 to any grievance or protest near you and across state lines. Then, you could possibly “murder” (used loosely throughout this piece) two people, injure another and call it self-defense.”

Lessee…

1. Rittenhouse didn’t have an AR-15. It was a Smith & Wesson M&P rifle.

2. Rittenhouse didn’t take the rifle across state lines.

3. “Murder” is a specific term best not used “loosely,” unless you enjoyed being sued for libel/defamation. Murder is the deliberate, unjustified killing of a human being by another human being. The general term ...

Congrats, you just won a crime scene!

But wait, there's more...

The ensuing criminal investigation pretty quickly zeroed in on the kids' mother, who had long since fled for South Korea.

Locksmithing for TEOTWAWKI, by R.M.G.

by SurvivalBlog Contributor in SurvivalBlog.com at 03:03, Tuesday, 27 September

Let’s take a moment to think about all the things/issues a locksmith might help us with today, that we might be able to prepare ourselves for tomorrow. We have keys and locks that secure our house, our vehicles, the storage shed/workshop out back, our place of business, our guns, our money/important papers/silver/gold. The list goes on and on, and most of it is stuff we take for granted. Many of us have no idea that there are things that we can do to better secure all or most of the things listed above and most people don’t know that there …

The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

by James Wesley Rawles in SurvivalBlog.com at 03:01, Tuesday, 27 September

“Whenever there is a jackboot stepping on a human face, there will be a well-heeled Western Liberal to explain that the face does, after all, enjoy free health care and 100% literacy.” – John Derbyshire

The post The Editors’ Quote of the Day: appeared first on SurvivalBlog.com.

Emily Perreira grew up hunting in Maui, Hawaii. In fact, her family owns a big game outfitting company and taxidermy shop, and she remembers her very first hunt at 5 years old in Texas – where she shot a feral goat. She also remembers loving the excitement that came along with the hunt, and continues chasing that feeling as an adult. Emily went to nursing school in Oregon, and works full time as a nurse and continues the family business – she’s a big game hunting guide. She sat down with us several years ago when she was 20-years-old, and talked about balancing life as a student and hunter; you can read that post here.

It just absolutely goes to show: No good deed goes unpunished. I mean, damn that was one heck of a find to voluntarily report to the G. Then what does the government do but get a warrant to raid their place to look for more of them and to look for any evidence they might find of any wrong doing. All they probably had to do was ask to be allowed to search the other containers but no they had to get a warrant when they (the folks who found them) seemingly had done the right thing.

If you look at pictures of bright stars photographed through reflecting telescopes so big that they have operators because the astronomer could never do both direction and observation, you will often see either four or six spikes off the star.  Four spikes means a four leg spider; six spikes means a three leg spider.  The spikes from a three spider are supposedly less bright than from a four leg spider but I confess the difference is usually too subtle for me to see.

Feral Bullies In action

by TPOL Nathan in The Price of Liberty at 20:00, Monday, 26 September

The Washington Times reports that on Friday, the FBI arrested a pro-life activist in Pennsylvania for allegedly twice for “attack of a patient escort” because he shoved a pro-abortion activist to the ground twice during anti-abortion protests in Philadelphia in 2021. This is a federal crime under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act. The FACE Act makes it a federal crime to use force, intimidate or interfere with anyone because that person is a provider of reproductive health care. (Euphemism for abortion provider – not gynecologists.)

It isn’t the charges or the arrest that grates on the nerves. It is the manner in which the arrest was carried out.

The arrest early in the morning at the accused man’s home, in front of his wife and seven children, was done using a heavily-armed platoon of FBI agents: at least two dozen agents carrying rifles, with some in “firing positions” (that is, ready to snipe at the “enemy”) around the house. A...

@#$%! Generator

by Borepatch in Borepatch at 12:49, Monday, 26 September

Damn generator won't start.  It will almost start - start to turn over, but then shuts off.  Here's the situation:

  • Last time I ran it was when I got it, four years ago.  It's been in storage ever since.
  • I drained the gas tank and ran it until it quit before storing it, so it is unlikely that it's a bad gas issue.
  • I checked the oil.  Unsurprisingly, it looks pristine.
  • I filled the gas tank with ethanol-free gas.
Anyone have any thoughts?  I didn't take the carburetor out to check it because that's kind of a pain.


Hurricane Ian

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 12:34, Monday, 26 September

 I'm trying to get a handle on (now) Hurricane Ian, but everyone else is too.  It's going to hit Florida as a strong hurricane, but no one is really sure where it's going to make landfall.

The thing about hurricanes is that they are so big.  Tropical force winds can stretch out 200 miles from edge to edge, and the exact point where the center of the eyewall crosses from ocean to land is kind of irrelevant. A big chunk of Florida is in the danger zone.  Storm surge is the real killer in storms like this, and the surge is always wort on the eastern side, and all of Florida is on the eastern side

I'll be praying for the folks in Florida.

 I had to get moving this morning, go to the Doc's place and give him some blood and urine.  It's time for my semi-annual visit, so he can tell me that I'm becoming an old, decrepit man.  I don't mind, so much.  I actually like my Doc.  He seems to be a good fellow, and we normally talk about fishing, or whiskey, after he has done his duty to my health.

I'm his last patient today, and I'm thinking about bringing him a sample of a fine, American single malt that someone else introduced me to.  They can't call it Scotch, because it is not a product of Scotland, but they make it in Colorado.  Every Scotch drinker I've talked with thinks that it is a very good representation of a single malt whiskey.  Stranahan's whiskey.

We can't get it in Louisiana (or at least, I haven't found it yet) and Louisiana's laws don't allow then to ship it to me.  It is confounding.

Oddly enough they do test for covid-19 antibodies, hepatitis B and C, West Nile virus, syphilis, and HIV (and are thinking about screening for monkeypox).

Yugoslav M70A: The AK With a Real Magazine Holdopen

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 09:27, Monday, 26 September

Yugoslavia began development of a Kalashnikov pattern rifle in 1959. The Yugoslav rifle would be distinct from the standard Soviet model, as evidenced by features like the gas cutoff for grenade launching and the early use of a true bolt hold open feature.

The first version was the M64, but this saw very limited production. The first large scale model produced was the M70 (fixed stock) and M70A (under folder), and that is what we are looking at today. Note that these rifles are frequently misidentified as the M64 pattern.

These rifles include a bolt holdopen attached by a screw in the left side of the receiver. They use a magazine that is identical to the standard AK magazine, but with a notch cut in the left side for actuating the hold open. This device was removed form later versions of the rifle and retroactively removed form many M70 and M70A rifles ...
