WGN’s Pat Tomasulo Prepares For TEOTWAWKI Post-Cubs World Series Win

The Chicago Cubs have won the World Series, ending a 108-year “drought.”

Could this be The End Of The World As We Know It?

After all, this North Side professional baseball club have been those “loveable losers” for what seems like an eternity.

Shedding that label now could very well mean Hell has indeed “frozen over.”

Wonder Lake, Illinois-based Zombie Combat Dive Team (“Using Zombies as premise to teach Disaster Preparedness, Self defense, and other skills, in the case of a catastrophic event, and for disaster preparedness”) was paid a visit recently by Pat Tomasulo of WGN-TV (Chicago Channel 9) to pick up a few pointers on how to survive this potential TEOTWAWKI event:


“Pat Tomasulo ready for ANYTHING at Wrigley Field World Series weekend”
WGN-TV Video

A really funny segment.

And those watching the video may have picked up that it’s actually Tomasulo one should fear crossing paths with should all hell ever break loose on the streets of Chicago.

Resource Of The Week: In The Rabbit Hole Urban Survival Podcast

In yesterday’s post I talked about modern survivalist Jack Spirko and his advice for dealing with this election cycle’s intensifying insanity. I mentioned Spirko is the long-time host of The Survival Podcast, which I named a “Resource Of The Week” all the way back on March 4, 2011. Great stuff, and I still cherry-pick from the latest episodes posted on the TSP website on a regular basis.

There’s one other prepper/survival-related podcast I listen to these days:

In The Rabbit Hole Urban Survival Podcast

From the podcast section of the ITRH website:

After years of being frustrated that no one was fully addressing the concerns of urban survivalists, Aaron [Frankel] and Jonathan [Kanarek] took to the web and founded In The Rabbit Hole in February of 2010. Shortly after they’re long time friend and accomplice Jason joined the show to add a touch of “Red Neck Cajun”. Since then the show has enjoyed many great guests and a wide range of topics.

They are three city boys with a lifetime affinity for the outdoors, but a love of the city, passion for survival topics, and Libertarian Ideals…

“In The Rabbit Hole is about focusing first on the things that matter most: What’s likely to happen. Then preparing for it in a rational and productive way.”

These priorities of urban survival come from the focal points of Community, Health and Intelligence–referred to as “Survival CHI”.

Through a weekly podcast and articles, Aaron, Jonathan, and Jason remind people to “Stay safe and sound”. (Safe in person and sound in mind.)

From the Lone Star State, the trio reach out to people who are interested in taking personal responsibility for their own safety and well-being…

…And who just happen to live in the city.

While not a “long-time listener” to the podcast, I’ve noticed it’s not just urban preppers/survivalists who could learn a thing or two from the material presented. The ITRH site adds:

Hosts Aaron, Jason, and Jonathan cover topics such as:

Self Sufficiency
Food Storage
Homesteading in the city
Survival Book, Video, and Gear Reviews
Starting Off as a New Prepper
Financial Survival
Self Reliance
Preparing for Natural Disasters
Emergency Medicine
Firearms, Guns, and things that go bang
Self Defense
Disaster Psychology

Surveying the latest episodes listed on the ITRH website, episode 191, “Surviving Refugee Hell” (posted October 17)- with James Price, Founder/Director of Humanitarian Aid Security Forces (HASF)- sounds like my next listen.

Interested in tuning-in too? Head on over to the In The Rabbit Hole Urban Survival Podcast website here.

But before you do, there’s also this from the ITRH gang:

Not sure where to begin?

Two of ITRH’s most acclaimed episodes that paint a clear picture of what the Podcast is about are:

TEOTWAWKI Reality Check: What do you really need to be prepping for.

Survival CHI- Reloaded: The foundational principles of ITRH.

The Survival Podcast’s Jack Spirko Offers Advice For Combating ‘Election Anxiety Disorder’

“The presidential election dominates the news cycle for several months once every four years- but if 2016’s intensely hostile contest has left you feeling more anxious than usual, you’re far from alone. In a survey released Thursday by the American Psychological Association (APA), 52 percent of American adults report the election as a significant source of stress in their lives…”

-Fox News website, October 18

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Due to the focus of my research, I’m constantly tuned into the 24-hour news cycle. But because I’ve been at it for almost a decade now, I’ve conditioned myself to deal with much of the nonsense being churned out regularly by various mainstream/alternative media outlets.

Hint: Employing “filters,” recognizing who/what is behind the “news”- particularly their political leanings, and not taking what’s said at face-value might go a long way in maintaining one’s sanity.

That being said, I’d be lying if I claimed the hotly-contested U.S. presidential election and all the bung that’s come with it hasn’t made my work more difficult these past several months.

The phrase “excruciatingly painful” actually comes to mind as I type this, as the “nonsense” I referred to earlier has been magnified exponentially- to the extent that it’s even getting under my skin.

I can only imagine how this political circus is affecting other Americans…


“You’re driving me crazy!”
Suicidal Tendencies, Institutionalized (1983)
YouTube Video

So how does one deal with “election anxiety disorder,” as I’ve heard it being called?

Well, that Health.com/Fox News piece offered up several short-term, rather common-sense suggestions like “limit your media consumption” and “avoid getting into discussions about the election if you think they have the potential to escalate to conflict.”

But I also came across more long-term advice from modern survivalist/host of The Survival Podcast Jack Spirko recently on dealing with the freakshow. From the website intro to episode 1885, “Join the Quiet Insurrection” (posted October 18):

I sat today in dismay as I looked at Fox News and CNN for just a bit to get a feel for what is going on with the Assclown Circus of 2016. All I hear is each side saying the other side sucks more. I am getting emails from listeners about how family members are angry with each other because of who they will vote for or because they won’t vote at all.

I look and I see nothing but a nation on verge of just saying F-it and dropping a shit ton of LSD and lighting shit on fire. It saddens me and it makes me laugh at the same time. I know as I have always taught there is no solution in the halls of government or in arguing with your friends and family about which criminal is worse or even making the case that they are all criminals. The only real solutions are in the acts of sedition and insurrection

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Now, Spirko is definitely not calling for violence here. Rather, a “quiet insurrection” which TSP practitioners “have been involved in for almost a decade now.”

The episode is an interesting listen. Cathartic possibly for those afflicted with this so-called election anxiety disorder.

“Join the Quiet Insurrection” can be accessed via The Survival Podcast website here.

British Preppers’ Take On The June 23 ‘Brexit’ Vote

This afternoon I came across a piece about tomorrow’s “Brexit” vote (deciding whether Britain should leave/ remain in the European Union)- from the standpoint of British preppers- on the Preppers Shop UK Blog. From “The UK’s only dedicated prepping shop” on June 21:

How you should prepare for the EU referendum result.

Whichever side of the fence you sit on, it would be foolish to think that the result wont have a massive effect on everyone.

There are plenty of concerns if we stay in. European army, several new countries joining the EU, the crumbling euro, increased immigration putting strains on services and increased control over our laws from the EU.

If we vote out there will inevitably be a temporary drop in the economy and there is of course uncertainty over what will happen, after all its never been done before.

As preppers we should be considering how it could effect us…

The post went on to discuss the prospects for:

• “Social unrest.”
• “Job loss.”
• “Drop in the sterling.”
• “Food & fuel shortages.”

An insightful look at how America’s prepper cousins “across the pond” perceive Thursday’s historic event, which you can read in its entirety here.

Signs Of The Time, Part 102

From the official website of the National Association of REALTORS- realtor.com- this past Tuesday:

“Prepping for Doomsday: Bunkers, Panic Rooms, and Going Off the Grid”

Excerpts from the article included:

“If the booming sales of panic rooms are any indication, more and more city dwellers these days are obsessively worrying about everything from home invasions to terror attacks…”

“Some real estate companies are seeing big increases by specializing in ‘survivalist properties’…”

“Survivalists are also particularly hungry for metal containers they can convert into shelters and bury underground…”

While there’s the expected mocking tone to the piece (“Welcome to the brave (and for some, highly profitable) new world of paranoia”), it’s still an interesting look at what’s going on with panic/safe rooms, survival real estate, and (underground) shelters- topics I’ve blogged about from time to time over the last several years.

You can read the entire article on realtor.com here.

Resource Of The Week: SurvivalBlog.com’s Quick-Start Guide For Preparedness Newbies

Even before I started Survival And Prosperity back in November 2010, I’d been dropping by SurvivalBlog.com, “The Daily Web Log for Prepared Individuals Living in Uncertain Times,” on a regular basis. James Wesley, Rawles (“JWR”) is behind that blog, which launched in 2005. The former U.S. Army intelligence officer-turned-survival author, blogger, and retreat consultant has managed to turn the project into the “Internet’s most popular daily blog on survival and preparedness topics.” And his books are pretty good too.

A couple of weeks ago while surfing SurvivalBlog.com I came across a link to a guide for new preppers on the site. From the section entitled “SurvivalBlog’s Quick-Start Guide for Preparedness Newbies”:

I often get e-mails from folks that have just found SurvivalBlog or that have just finished a copy of my novel “Patriots”, that they received as a gift from a relative or a friend. Their response is surprisingly uniform: People feel overwhelmed by the enormity of what it takes to get a family prepared.

First, take a deep breath and relax. Just realizing that you need to get prepared has already put you ahead of 70% of your neighbors, who are sadly little more than clueless sheeple. If you accumulate a one-month food supply then elevates your preparedness into the 80th percentile of preparedness. And by the time you work your way up to a one year supply, you’ll be in the 98th percentile. It’s not very difficult, it’s not very expensive, and it’s not very time-consuming. Just do it one step at a time…

The “Quick-Start Guide” focuses heavily on tackling a “List of Lists,” which includes:

• Water List
• Food Storage List
• Food Preparation List
• First Aid /Minor Surgery List
• Chem/Nuke Defense List
• Biological Warfare Defense List
• Gardening List
• Hygiene/Sanitation List
• Hunting/Fishing/Trapping List
• Power/Lighting/Batteries List
• Fuels List
• Firefighting List
• Tactical Living List
• Security-Firearms List
• Communications/Monitoring List
• Tools List
• Book/Reference List
• Barter and Charity List

It’s impressive for a “quick-start” guide, chock-full of useful preparedness/survival information. If I thought TEOTWAWKI was fast approaching and hadn’t done much to prepare for it, I would likely turn to this resource to rapidly get me going in the right direction.

Check out “SurvivalBlog’s Quick-Start Guide for Preparedness Newbies” for yourself here.

In Print: Blockade- The Diary Of An Austrian Middle-Class Woman 1914-1924

Slowly but surely, I’ve been bringing back those different series of posts I started running in November 2010. It’s been a while since I published an “In Print” piece (December 2014), but truth be told, I’ve hardly had time to read any books (to completion) for quite some time. Seriously. That’s changing, and a number of titles I have in my possession will be presented and discussed in future “In Print” posts. Some real good material there too.

This week’s “In Print” selection is entitled Blockade- The Diary of an Austrian Middle-Class Woman 1914-1924, which was written in 1932 by Anna Eisenmenger. I’m not sure exactly how I heard about the “diary,” but I’m glad I did- as were others. You see, I had just finished reading it when I posted the following comment on the blog area of the SHTF School website (produced in conjunction with well-known Balkan region war survivor/prepper/survivalist “Selco” and “dedicated to urban survival and preparedness”):

“Suggest someone who is dear to you to read real life experiences.” Selco, I recently read a book (diary actually) from around your part of the world that I found relevant and intriguing- Anna Eisenmenger’s 94-page “Blockade – The Diary of an Austrian Middle-Class Woman 1914-1924,” available for free on archive.org. “Diary of an Austrian woman who lived through World War I and the interwar years in Vienna. She witnessed the devaluation of the currency and the government controls on food, fuel, and travel. Her sons were wounded in the war and one turned to extremist ideals in the wake of the war. Interesting personal view of a sometimes overlooked historical period.” Eisenmenger talked about a range of topics, including asset protection, bartering, civil unrest, food shortages, health issues, urban versus rural when TSHTF, and going to extremes to save one’s family.

In response to a question of how to download the diary in a “readable format,” I added later:

If Selco and gang don’t mind me posting it here, below is the link on archive.org to the page where Mrs. Eisenmenger’s diary can either be read (page top) or downloaded (page right). I opted for the .pdf version, which worked fine in my Acrobat Reader. If the link gets stripped, you can go to archive.org, enter “Blockade The Diary” in the search engine (not that “WayBackMachine” box) and the link to the page where you can read/download it should appear near the top of the search results. Hope this helps. I found the diary insightful and sobering. Hard to believe it was published in 1932 as it reads like a modern manuscript…

https://archive.org/details/Blockade-TheDiaryOfAnAustrianMiddle-classWoman1914-1924

Selco and others were grateful to me for pointing out this free resource, with one blog reader going so far as to write:

Thank you so much for recommending this book. What a great read and if I was part of a prepper group, this book would be recommended reading…

No problem. And now I’m recommending it to Survival And Prosperity readers.

You can use that link to Blockade I shared with the SHTF School folks. I just tested it and it’s still “live.”

The Survival Podcast’s Jack Spirko: ‘2016 Is Going To Be A Year That We Officially Are In A Recession’

Plenty of recession talk going around these days.

I recently listened to an episode of The Survival Podcast (named a “Resource Of The Week” back in March 2011) that grabbed my attention. Modern survivalist and host Jack Spirko warned listeners in episode 1711 (January 18, 2016), “Listener Feedback- Political Speculation Edition”:

I think that all the things that we talk about every day are things that you really might need to start considering doing more of. Providing as much as you can of your own food to cut your costs. Because here’s what coming with all this. A recession. A recession. 2016 is going to be a year that we officially are in a recession. The global indicators are such that you can’t really believe it’s not going to happen.

Back in episode 1608 (July 21, 2015), Spirko also talked about a coming economic downturn and advised:

We need to, I think at this point, assess our preps for hard financial times, more than anything else right now. I’m not talking about economic collapse, I’m talking about economic struggle. Everybody’s waiting for economic collapse, no one understands we’re standing in the middle of it. We’re standing in the middle of it…

Buck up your preps guys. Get ready for tougher times ahead…

The United States economy does not have to collapse for your personal economy to collapse. Nine million people found that out the hard way last time. Be prepared this time. Be prepared. Prepare to feed yourself, clothe yourself, take care of yourself, provide for your own security. Start thinking about the efficiencies of your energy usage, and get very, very diverse with your skill set, your knowledge, your ability to earn income. That’s how you prepare for what’s coming.

Project Prepper, Part 40: 2016 Recap

Tonight I’m reintroducing the “Project Prepper” series of posts on Survival And Prosperity. And since it’s been some time since my last post, I’m going to do a recap this evening about what this series of posts is all about for those who don’t already know. On October 24, 2012, I wrote:

Back in early 2007, I decided to launch a blog that warned anyone who would listen of a coming U.S. financial crash.

By 2010, many Americans had tasted the type of carnage I predicted three years earlier. And it was at this time I decided to take my blogging in a new direction, from simply warning about the coming storm to providing information and possible solutions for coming out on the other side of the maelstrom in decent shape.

For almost two years on Survival And Prosperity, I’ve addressed that information component. As I see it, the writing is on the wall concerning where our economy and larger financial system is headed. As such, it’s time to really focus on potential solutions- those things that might help protect and grow self and wealth in these uncertain times and down the road.

Enter “Project Prepper.”

Once in a while I blog about preppers/survivalists, and as a result, I’m often mistaken for one. The truth is, I’m not a “modern survivalist.” I’m just an independent researcher and blogger currently focusing on economics, finance, investing, and personal safety.

That being said, as a result of my research and this blog, I’m now aware of the myriad of man-made and naturally-occurring threats to my life and lifestyle (and those of my loved ones), and think it’s probably wise to acquaint myself more with “prepping” via a sustained “hands-on” program of learning and doing, which I’ll call “Project Prepper.”

Through a series of posts on this blog which I suspect should last for quite some time (years?), I’ll be able to share my preparedness experiences with you.

By doing this, I’ll also be able to make more progress in providing readers of this blog those possible solutions I talked about earlier in the post.

Will I end up being a “prepper” at the end of it all? Who knows? If anything, I should be able to glean a good deal of useful knowledge from this venture.

Knowledge which I hope to share with you…

More next week as I talk about where “Project Prepper” currently stands after writing the above a little over three years ago.

Resource Of The Week: Free Amazon Kindle E-Books Related To Prepping, Survival

I don’t have a big budget to spend on prepping/survival-related reading material. And when it comes to purchasing books, particularly ones that will end up as part of my personal reference library, I prefer the print copy to the electronic version (if available) for fast, reliable access under any circumstance.

That being said, I do purchase e-books. Specifically, Kindle editions from Amazon.com. Now, I don’t own a Kindle, but I do have Amazon’s free Kindle Reading App (available for computers, tablets, and smart phones) installed on my laptop. Which Kindle books do I buy? While I don’t really have time to read the genre anymore, survival fiction not deemed reference material.

The thing I love about Kindle e-books is that they generally cost less than the print editions.

And recently, I’ve learned how to acquire a number of them even cheaper. Specifically, free.

The really cool thing is, this applies not only to prepping- or survival-related Kindle books, but works covering many other subjects.

Instructions

Required: Amazon account and Kindle or free Kindle Reading App installed on computer/tablet/smart phone

1. Go to Amazon.com
2. At the top of the page to the left of the search bar, you will see a drop down menu displaying “All.” Left-click on that and select “Kindle Store” from the list of choices.
3. Enter the keyword “prepping” or “survival” for example as your query in the search bar, at which point Amazon will bring up a list of results. Press the “Enter” key or left-click on magnifying glass to right of search bar.
4. Near the top-right area of the page where it says “Sort by,” you will see a drop down menu displaying “Relevance.” Left-click on that and select “Price: Low to High” from the list of choices.
5. The list of results should now be re-ordered. What you’re looking for are those e-books displaying “$0.00 Kindle Edition” or “$0.00 to buy Kindle Edition.” Note that “$0.00 kindleunlimited” is something completely different. When you left-click on “Buy now with 1-Click” for the titles displaying “$0.00 Kindle Edition” or “$0.00 to buy Kindle Edition,” Amazon finalizes the process of delivering the free e-book to your Kindle or computer/tablet/smart phone with the free Kindle Reading App.
6. Perform this query routinely, as titles are removed and new e-books are added to the list over time.
