    Stay free, stay strong, do your part for the civil defense, and we will have an ever increasing, responsibly armed citizenry against the forces of evil, and maintain our unique country, free in a world of oppression One of the great freedoms I can now exercise since leaving California is the right to own and carry firearms (keep and bear arms), which the Constitution guarantees the government will not even touch (infringe). Of course they do, especially in California and other liberal states. But in Florida, you can apply for a concealed carry weapons (CCW) permit, and if you meet...
  • 40 Million Russians To Take Part In "Nuclear Disaster" Drill, Days After US General Warns (TR)

    As relations between Russia and the US disintegrate as a result of the escalating proxy war in Syria, which today culminated with Putin halting a Plutonium cleanup effort with the US, shortly before the US State Department announced it would end negotiations with Russia over Syria, tomorrow an unprecedented 40 million Russian citizens, as well as 200,000 specialists from "emergency rescue divisions" and 50,000 units of equipment are set to take part in a four day-long civil defense, emergency evacuation and disaster preparedness drill, the Russian Ministry for Civil Defense reported on its website. According to the ministry, an all-Russian...

    Germany will introduce its first civil defense strategy since the end of the Cold War, calling on the population to stockpile enough food and water for several days, according to a report Sunday. The plan, which makes civilian backing of troops a priority while boosting the resilience of buildings and increasing capacity in the healthcare system, is due to be adopted by the government Wednesday, according to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) daily. […] The strategy noted that “an attack on German territory requiring conventional defense is unlikely,” but said the country should be “sufficiently prepared in case of an...

    Oath Keepers is instructing its 30,000 members nation-wide to form up special teams and sub-teams in each Oath Keepers chapter, at the town and county level, modeled loosely on the Special Forces “A Team” (Operational Detachment A ) model, and for a similar purpose: to be both a potential operational unit for community security and support during crisis, but also, as mission #1, to serve as training and leadership cadre, to assist in organizing neighborhood watches, organizing veterans halls to provide community civil defense, forming County Sheriff Posses, strengthening existing CERT, volunteer fire, search-and-rescue, reserve deputy systems, etc., and...

    For months, military leaders and commentators have been warning Israelis their cities face an unprecedented threat of missile attacks even as the country invests heavily in developing air-defense systems experts say cannot provide adequate protection. This uncharacteristically downbeat theme was summed up by Maj. Gen. Amod Yadlin, the outgoing chief of Military Intelligence, in a Nov. 21 briefing to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's Cabinet. "Tel Aviv will be a front line in the next conflict," he warned. A few days earlier, he'd told the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee that "future wars … will be much bigger, much wider...
  • Moscow arms against nuclear attack

    07/15/2010 7:02:19 PM PDT · by ErnstStavroBlofeld · 42 replies · 1+ views ^ | 7/12/2010 |
    Nearly 5,000 new emergency bomb shelters will be built in Moscow by 2012 to save people in case of potential attacks. In the last 20 years, the area of air-raid defense has been developed little, and the existing shelters have become outdated. Moreover, they are located mostly in the city center, which makes densely populated Moscow outskirts especially vulnerable in the event of a nuclear attack In order to resolve the issue, the city has given architects a task to construct a typical model of an easy-to-build shelter that will be located all over the city 10 to 15 meters...

    The Jewish community in the West Bank plans to host up to 500,000 Israelis in the event of a future regional war.In the 1991 Gulf war, thousands of residents from the Tel Aviv area fled to the West Bank for safety from Iraqi Scud ballistic missile strikes. In the 2006 war with Lebanon, about 10,000 residents of northern Israel joined relatives and friends in the West Bank to escape Hizbullah rocket attacks. "Judea and Samaria can be a place of refuge for the nation," Naftali Bennett, director-general of the Council of Jewish Communities of Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip,...

    Over the last three years, Israel has been revising its civil defense plans, and how to deal with the growing arsenal of rockets and ballistic missiles aimed at it. The latest change is the announcement that the military is dispersing its stocks of supplies, equipment and spare parts to a larger number of (better protected) locations. For the last two years, the government has been constantly updating and revising a war planning document. This plan assumes a future war with Syria, and gives the local officials an idea of what to expect. Currently, the Israelis estimate that there would be...

    Israel on Sunday began distributing new gas masks for civilians to use in a possible chemical or biological attack, the army said. "The civil defence has asked the Israeli postal service to begin distributing gas masks on an experimental basis to the residents of Or Yehuda," a military spokesman told AFP, referring to an area near Tel Aviv. "Gradually, based on the lessons learned in this operation and in accordance with the Israeli government's decision, the distribution will be extended to the entire population," he added. The government decided on January 5 to distribute some eight million new gas masks,...

    I've always disliked the term "Homeland Security," from the very first time I heard George Bush utter it in a national address. There's just something Motherland/Fatherland creepy about it, and the recent DHS reports on "rightwing extremism" and "southbound weapons smuggling" confirm the fascist touch that seems to accompany everything the federal government oversees. I remember being bugged when we as citizens were basically told that going about our business was the best contribution we could make to what should be civil defense. Well we've gone about our business. The government has gone about theirs. And we're a much less...

    A friend of mine on a popular social networking site just posted an interesting message. She says that prior to posting she had just completed an Web survey on commercials about how to survive a nuclear explosion. The survey covered basic emergency preparedness information, including information about a "ready kit". According to her, the people taking the survey did not say who they were. The wording of the questions was typical ("Did this commercial give you useful information? Did this commercial seem believable?", etc.). As part of the survey, she was also shown storyboard animation representing the eventual live-action commercial....

    33 Minutes and Why it is Important in this New Missile Age In January of 2009, The Heritage Foundation will release a high-definition documentary that tells the story of the very real threat that hostile nations and rogue dictators now pose to every one of us. The truth is brutal: in 33 minutes or less a missile launched at America would hit the U.S. target it was programmed to destroy. We must cause people to stop and face this horrible reality. Aptly named, 33 Minutes: Protecting America in the New Missile Age, our documentary will be a key component in...

    Duck and CoverAdmittedly, Hollywood is not a center of profound intellectual thought. It's been called the "dream capital of the world", and in a real sense this is true. Like dreams, many of Hollywood's movies consist of plots and dialogue that don't make much sense, and characters whose behavior defies the principles of psychology as frequently as it breaks the rules of physics. Some of them, like the dreary antiwar movies of the 1960s, are blatantly political and manipulative. But some of them can only be described as dangerous misinformation cynically disguised as entertainment. One of the worst examples of...

    FOREST PARK, Ga. — The gruff, cigar-chomping general who led federal troops into New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina is convinced America hasn't learned its lesson from the storm. As Lt. Gen. Russel Honore gets ready to retire from the Army and hand over his command on Friday, he says he wants to spend the rest of his life creating a "culture of preparedness" to prevent another post-disaster disaster. "There's an attitude everywhere else that people are smarter than they are in New Orleans and in Mississippi. They're not," the 60-year-old general said at his office at Fort Gillem, just outside...

    Question: I’m thinking of a policy proposal that could easily mean the difference between life and death for tens or hundreds of thousands–conceivably even millions–of Americans who are alive at this very moment. Each year that passes magnifies the urgency of the problem this policy would address. Experts on both sides of the political spectrum appear to agree on both the pressing need for reform, and on the appropriate way to meet the challenge. Yet in our public debates we hear virtually nothing of this issue. What am I thinking of? Answer: Nuclear fallout shelters. This country needs to develop...
