This is an old podcast that Sean and I recorded almost 5 years ago! It became relevant once again last week when we lost power for three days.
In this podcast we also discuss the refugee settlement program, we feel exactly the same today. The program is not about compassion or humanitarianism, but rather a deliberate action of the Obama administration to flood the U.S. especially conservative and rural areas with Muslims.
When we look at the ideology of Muslims, we can see that they are called through their religion to “jihad”. cultural Jihad is this:
Once those things are done they bring in sharia law. We have seen this happen in several cities around the United States as well as places in Europe. This is still true today.
How to set yourself up so you can be a little more prepared in a power outage
Fuel. Keep your vehicles always above 1/2 tank & have a good fuel storage. Whatever gas you have in your tanks and storage may end up being what you have, depending on how extensive the power outage is. Gas and diesel does not store for a long time, make sure to rotate, and use stabilizers that can be added to help increase storage time.
Cooking. We have a gas stove which is great, but we will lose the electric component to start the stove so we have long lighters available to make this easier. This allows us to utilize it for cooking, heating water, etc. If you do have electric, then keeping a rocket stove, barbeque, All-American Sun Oven, or cook over the fire.
Heat. On this day, it was 28 degrees outside, but the house was still warm because we do primarily use wood heat to warm the house. We did lose use of our electric fan which helps the air circulate more, but we just keep the doors open. If you rely on electricity, have a back up heating source. Make sure to have a good wood storage for the winter.
Radio Networks. We still had cell service (both times, but this year-2020, it was very unreliable). When cell service goes out, having a ham radio service or other type of communication back up.
We have a blackout kit which has flashlights, headlamps, lanterns, batteries, matches, lighters. However, when we checked our blackout kit, we found a lot of them didn’t work. Lesson learned – periodically check them out. Also, if you aren’t using the flashlights frequently, don’t store it with the batteries in it.
We cover a little more information, so enjoy the podcast in its entirety.
