You’re welcome Cindy! It’s going to be cold tonight, going to bundle up warm and go to sleep. Goodnight!
Not sure how the coming attack(s) will materialize.
I have about 3 months of non-perishable food now and continue to add to it. I have assembled a bug-out kit with about a month's worth of supplies. I can evac in 15 minutes, but leaving home is a LAST resort. Depends on the nature of the attack and the wind direction.
Water is not a problem. I main concern now is how to keep the house warm this winter without electricity. We have a 13KW Generac generator, but our LP tank is only 500 gallon and that fuel will be exhausted in about 15 days.
Short of buying a kerosene heater, anyone got any ideas on how to stay warm?
I'm working on LONG term survival now.
Please folks continue to prepare. That traitorous idiot in the WH is going to get a lot of good people killed.
Stay safe folks,
Folks, remember SITUATIONAL AWARENESS!!! Be aware of what's going on around you. When in malls or other large buildings, know where the closest exit is.
TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS!!! If you feel something is wrong, it may be. Leave the area ASAP.
Have to go get another generator ready for delivery now. Hope everyone as a peaceful, safe, and relaxing weekend.
Keep Alert folks!!!
We used to have a cabin up in the Big Horn Mtns., Wy. No electricity, but the old wood stove kept us quite toasty. I think wood pellets could also be used to fuel them.
Fears that al-Qaeda is planning an attack on the nuclear industry in Europe were renewed yesterday after French secret agents arrested a physicist working at an atomic research centre.
The 32-year-old man, who was detained with his brother, 25, is suspected of providing a list of terrorist targets to North African Islamic radicals. He worked for the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland, according to French police sources.
Agents were said to have intercepted messages in which the physicist, a Frenchman of Algerian origin, had suggested targets in France.
He is believed to have been in contact with members of al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, an Algerian-based terror organisation that joined Osama bin Ladens network in 2007.
Thank you for the ping Oorang.
A great weekend to you and all TMers.

US Gives Brazilian Terrorist Visa So He Can Listen to Jazz in New Orleans
Wednesday, 14 October 2009
Brazilian economist and journalist Paulo de Tarso Venceslau, a former Brazilian guerrilla who in 1969 was involved in the abduction of US ambassador Charles Elbrick, has been extended a visa to travel to the United States by the consulate office in São Paulo.
According to Venceslau, the fact the American President Barack Obama administration agreed to extend him a visa marks a complete different attitude from the previous government of former president George Bush.
For three times the economist applied to visit the US and three times had the visa denied for being in a black list as a terrorist.
Congress member Gabeira had requested a visa during the administration of former President Bush but was rejected and impeded from traveling to the US.
Thank you for the ping Lucy.
Maybe the folks in NOLA will take care of him!,,,
The 9th. Ward at midnite will work for me...;0)
How gracious of them to finally relent and grant the "terrorist" a visa (/sarc).
Isn't there any other way he could listen to jazz?

Nestlé has inaugurated the world's largest bouillon factory in the Chinese city of Shanghai.
Snippets: Like Christopher, John Layous of the Garlic Co. in Bakersfield, Calif., buys Chinese imports to keep costs low. He supplies Costco, Sam's Club and food-service companies. Layous rails against what he sees as China's unfair competitive advantage, saying his 185-person company, in business since 1980, pays decent wages and provides health and other benefits, unlike Chinese growers. "Another big addition to our costs is the expense we go through to make a safe product," he says, adding that U.S. companies are government-regulated to ensure food is safe.
Fresh garlic isn't the only form of the vegetable causing concern. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Foreign Agricultural Service says dehydrated Chinese garlic imports increased 384 percent in the past 10 years. Layous and others cite a 2002 report by the now-defunct Americans for Wholesome Food, a coalition of businesses and organizations dedicated to educating consumers, on domestic and imported garlic powder. The AWF's report, based on independent lab tests, found "high levels of lead, arsenic and added sulfites in two supermarket-brand imported garlic powders from store shelves."
Snippet: Despite this, Chinese garlic does not meet with food safety protocols (at least those in Australia). According to Henry Bell of the Australian Garlic Industry Association, garlic from China is doused in chemicals to stop sprouting, to whiten garlic, and to kill insects and plant matter. He also reports that garlic is grown in untreated sewage
Expose in the New York Times Magazine (Nov. 2, 2008) revealed that there are no major generic aspirin manufacturers in Europe or the U.S. Most aspirin is now made in China.
26% of the Onions Worldwide are grown in China. USA, China, India and Russia are the main growers internationally.
Another official agency, General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine. also carried out tests on 31 batches of bath products made by Johnson & Johnson's China operations. The tests showed they met the standard for formaldehyde, the official Xinhua news agency said.

A South Carolina man accused of threatening to kill President George W. Bush has pleaded guilty to plotting to use biological weapons to attack other government officials and destroy the Navy brig near Charleston.
Snippets: "Despite inclement weather during the operation, 4,442 trucks passed through the I-81 Scales," Lt. McKenzie said.
A total of 272 truck drivers were contacted and 95 truck inspections were conducted.
Seven trucks were placed out of service for equipment defects, and 18 truck drivers were placed out of service for violations of hours of service regulations, McKenzie said.
A total of 62 citations and 14 assessments for penalties totaling $9,022 were issued by troopers," McKenzie said.
In addition, 41 K-9 walk arounds (of trucks by drug and bomb-detecting dogs) were performed and 109 radiological sweeps were conducted.
McKenzie said the high visibility of the event at the I-81 Scales "was designed to send a defining message to potential terrorists, and drivers of any unsafe truck planning to operate on Tennessee highways."
Thanks MamaD for the ping - seems as though they are looking for radiological type stuff doesn’t it?
It’s just a matter of time before they are able to carry out one of their plans I’m sure the NY/Colorado bunch were just a drop in the bucket - but at least they caught them!
Wow! Thanks, MamaD. I buy JuicyJuice for the grandchildren from time to time. No More!
Is nothing sacred? LOL!

"Europe is in the process of becoming Arabia. Churches are emptying out and mosques are filling up. Islam has tried to conquer Europe before ... And it is trying to do it again, not through warfare but mass immigration," said Wilders, a slim man with distinguishable Scandanavian locks.
It happened Sunday, but this is the first I've heard of it. No arrests, just the raid. But, if this raid was related to immigration or food processing, what was the FBI doing there?
I'll also note, that a separate report says that there are only 6 employees at the plant.
That's right, 100 federal agents raiding a company that only has six employees. If this wasn't terror related, then what other plausible explanation is there for it?
A civic liberties group is fighting for full access to the FBI's guidelines on the surveillance of religious communities, arguing that the Justice Departments recent decision to release partially redacted versions of the guidelines left out key passages pertaining to spying in local mosques.
Faced with a pair of lawsuits by Muslim Advocates and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the FBI last month made partially redacted versions of their Domestic Investigations and Operations Guidelines available for public review.
FBI officials describe the guidelines release as a move to greater transparency. But the move wasn't enough for Muslim Advocates, which responded by filing an amended lawsuit arguing that the FBI withheld entire sections dedicated to the infiltration of the Muslim community and religious organizations.
Just hit Drudge. Reuters has a blurb:
Thanks for all the articles - trying to get caught up.
We’re all still here watching and waiting.
