Quite some time ago, we offered up some information on preparedness. We were actually quite surprised on how well this information was received and numerous people even came into the shop to ask Dianne how she fashioned / organized her Bug Out Bags. So on that note, we decided to start another page on Tactical and Preparedness Tips offered up by us and some technical advisors that we network with.

Some of these tips will be new to you, some of them you will know, some of them you may have known but forgotten. We hope all of them will keep you thinking about your responsibility to always be mentally and physically prepared for the benefit of you, your family and your community.

Our technical advisors and us believe it is the individuals responsibility (not Governments or other agencies) to take the initiative to be well prepared with the proper equipment, training, and mental attitude to not only survive a crisis but be victorious. One only needs to look at Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans to understand the importance of this. The City had four days notice of the impending storm and floods. No one moved. The City had hundreds of school buses at its disposal to move people. None were utilized. People were already under flood waters before they tried to stock up on water and essentials by looting stores. Now it was too late to move. The people blamed the City for not keeping them safe and secure, watered and fed. The City blamed the state and the state blamed the Feds. Yet it was the citizens themselves who were in “condition white” and clueless to their pending predicament.

It’s highly unlikely that we will see a hurricane here in Edmonton but we have had severe tornado’s and extreme winter storms. The Province as a whole has been experiencing power “brownouts” and these are expected to get worse as the power grid has not kept up with development, hence power requirements. That forces us to survive at the very least for possibly hours, off the grid. We should be prepared for worse. As has been said before, we are martial artists and as such we train to make our minds and bodies strong. We should also be prepared to not only look after ourselves but those who cannot look after themselves such as the weak, handicapped or elderly. Hopefully you can glean a few tidbits of knowledge from this page. Stay tuned for more additions.

What's On The Horizon?

What’s on the Horizon?

I recently had this video forwarded to me from the NRA. There is a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes that rarely makes the “lamestream” media. This video touches on some of that.

So here is your waiver. Ignore the blatant salesmanship in this video and the personal endorsements. But listen to the overall message. Also, yes this is American, but we are virtually the same with minor differences in government, law etc. Never the less, Canada is a welfare state and when the fecal matter hits the rotating turbine, guess who will start rioting first when the government can’t provide their “free shit”.

Our world is a fluid environment, ever changing. As this is being written, Brussels just had a terrorist bombing. Things were just starting to get normalized after the Paris bombing, and now this activity is front and center again.

Locally, our economy is tanking after a year of NDP rule in Alberta and 5 months of Liberal rule nationally. Over 30,000 unvetted refugees have been brought in to the country and the Liberals have tripled the national debt. Alberta’s energy sector has been squashed and the government wants to institute a tax on “nothing” called a Carbon Tax. When will Canadians have had enough? The government is putting us out of work, hence the welfare state, yet at the same time, they expect everyone else to pick up the slack via taxation to pay for everyone else’s free shit. We currently pay over 50 percent of our salaries in some form of tax. What will be your breaking point, 60 percent, 70 percent, or 80 percent? Then what? A tax revolt?

Last year a major electrical line was damaged in a storm. As a result, it had to be shut down for repair meaning the other major lines in the province had to pick up the slack. We were very close to seeing a major power outage in the province. Didn’t hear that in the media did you? What will you do when the grid goes down?

The current iteration of Liberal leadership is throwing our national sovereignty out the window. They are importing refugees at a furious rate and at a horrendous monetary cost to this country. Look at what is occurring in Europe as a result of this same mentality of immigration. What will you do when there are riots in the streets or a terrorist attack occurs (again) on Canadian soil?

You need to address these issues and make a cognitive decision to be prepared for the sake of yourself and those close to you. If nothing happens, you haven’t lost a thing. Food and supplies can still be utilized and you will have been smarter for the experience and not stressed out from being unprepared. Have a listen.

It's Here

It’s Here!

We’ve been telling you guys for years that Canada is not isolated from what goes on around the world. It’s been here for a very long time, but now it’s in our face.

All these political and religious issues that we have seen going on around the world have existed in Canada for a very long time. They have just been held for the most part behind closed doors. There has been fund raising activities in Canada for various groups for years. Since before 9-11 occurred. That is a fact. We have had “clerics” calling on Canadian youth to rise up against the US for years. That is fact. We have had young men from Canada travel overseas to fight against American AND Canadian soldiers. That is fact. One of them remains in a Canadian prison and currently fights for his release back into Canadian society.

Money, the root of all evil as they say, is something we all need to keep on hand.

Now in a real bad survival type situation, where the grid goes down for a lengthy period of time, money will probably be useless. That’s when you get into bartering goods, but that’s a whole other topic. However, for short duration situations like a power outage that lasts several days, money talks. We’ve already seen numerous scenarios like this across North America. A storm or other incident knocks the power out and guess what, no debit machines!

Organization 101

So you’ve finally admitted to yourself that you should be a little more squared away in the event of an unforeseen event. You have now stockpiled extra food stuffs, water, some first aid products, reading material etc. It’s all stored in that closet or spare room. So how will you access what you need in a timely fashion? Any situation that places you under stress will make it more difficult for you to make decisions on the fly.

We've been saying this for a long time as have some of the "switched on" people we deal with on both sides of the border but only now is the mainstream (otherwise referred to as lamestream) media actually catching on. Rampant uncontrolled immigration across North America has set us up for this perfect storm.

Now if your going to go off on us for being "rascist" or some other tangent, don't waste your time, we won't read it. Of course not all immigrants are terrorists and we don't paint them with the same brush. So save your breath.

However, there are terrorist elements in Canada. Our own government admits to it (because they knowingly let them in) and CSIS admits to "watching" over 50 different groups as well as over "350" known individuals. Look it up.

So now we have individuals openly calling for activities within North America. Hello !  New York Times Square attempted bombing, Boston Marathon, etc. If you think these are just isolated incidents, you really do have your head in the sand.

The media also says that Syria may be the cause of WW3. Seriously, WW3 started decades ago. Africa; vehicle born bombs blew up embassies, hundreds of Americans killed. USS Cole was attacked and bombed, several servicemen killed. World Trade Centers attempted bombings, World Trade Centers knocked down by airplanes. These are just a few incidents. Again, look it up. We've been under direct attack for the last 3 decades. Yes these have been directed towards the US, however we are neighbors and share this continent so it's not just "their" problem.

Check out this latest article: Al Qaeda calls for attacks inside United States 

If your interested in the preparedness side of things, check out this page. They have a ton of great information. Almost too much to absorb, but certainly worth having a look. In any event, read, watch the news, be aware and don't get caught with your head in the sand. Oh, the site is called Prepper Chicks.
