How to Prepare for the Weather in Madison, Wisconsin (and Winter in General)

Winter in Madison

Sooner or later winter will be upon us. While most areas of the United States can manage to ride out the colder months, others aren’t so fortunate. New England states have winters that vary in coldness by their closeness to Canada. The same also goes for Wisconsin, as well.  Since some of our subscribers live in Wisconsin and the winters there are extreme, I figured this was as good a place as any to start.  

  Wisconsin started 2019 off with an arctic blast that burst water pipes, snapped rail lines, and caused cancellations across schools and businesses. According to the National Weather Service, cold weather causes an average of 28 deaths per year. Here are some tips to stay safe during winter in Wisconsin.

Boots, Not Shoes

  Your face may bear the brunt of the cold, but it’s your feet that affect your overall health. So it makes sense to find footwear that insulates your feet as well as your body.

  Choose a pair of boots that are sturdy and able to keep your feet free from moisture. If they’re comfortable enough, you could get away with wearing them year-round. While most people layer up their clothing, layering up your socks will only cut off circulation making your feet feel colder than they are.

Hand Warmers

  Keeping your fingers together inside your mittens, or gloves, is one way to keep your hands warm. For truly bitter cold climates, however, there are hand warming pads.

  Hand warmers are basically the temperate opposite of the cold packs you would use to ice over wounds. The pocket-sized gel pads emit a heat sensation when placed inside your gloves (or shoes). They are commercially available in air-tight packs of 2 for $2.

Giant Scarves

  Scarves are something of an extraneous, but underappreciated garment item. You might see people wearing these giant, colorful scarves and think they’re being showy. In fact, they’re being practical.

     A scarf can mask one’s face and be used as an emergency blanket. Whether wool or cotton, a giant scarf can be vital in a moment where you need to keep warm in an area with low heating. Whole-body scarves may be excessive (and expensive), so find a “shawl” length scarf for easier portability.  

Winterize Your Car

  Living in Wisconsin, especially rural areas, means having constant access to a set of wheels. Getting your vehicle prepared for the winter should be the first task you should do in the fall.

  The fluid levels, such as oil, antifreeze, and wiper fluid, should all be checked. Opt for an antifreeze-water mixture and make sure the oil is winter grade. Tires should be rotated and replaced if they’re going bald.

Also make sure and have an emergency kit in your vehicle at all times. Make sure you have some emergency blankets for heat as well. Many people have frozen to death in their stalled car in the winter.

Safe Alternative Heating   

  You might have a hot heating system, but what if it wasn’t so hot? In Wisconsin, “Madison homes for sale” listings need to advertise alternative heating sources.

  Fireplaces and wood-stoves are time-tested alternatives to modern heating. Install a battery-operated carbon monoxide detector along with your smoke detector. To avoid the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, keep any fuel-burning back-up generators outside. If you invest in a space heater, place it on a non-combustible surface to avoid a fire.

Louisiana sheriff’s deputy, junior-high teacher wife held on child rape and porn charges

Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office

Both husband and wife were charged with 60 counts of production of pornography involving a child under 13, as well as rape charges, authorities said.

Dennis Perkins was additionally charged with obstruction of justice because he allegedly tossed his cellphone into a river after realizing investigators were about to arrest him while he was on a fishing trip, a source told FOX 8.

The investigation into the couple’s alleged crimes began with a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, The Advocate of Baton Rouge reported.

The number of children who may have been victims of the couple wasn’t immediately known, authorities told the newspaper. Read the rest of the story from Fox News HERE


Stories like this sadden me greatly and truly shows us how far this world has fallen. Here we had 2 people who had the public trust when it came to protecting and educating our children. Yet what they’re charged with shows that they were the predators, the wolves in sheeps clothing. It prompts me to ask the question, How much of this is going on that we don’t ever hear about?

That is a scary thought especially when you look at books like the Franklin cover ups and the Jeffrey Epstein story. Child sex trafficking is taking place at all levels of society including high level government officials, billionaires, CEO’s, Doctors, Lawyers, and other professionals as we see here. If they aren’t involved in the actual trafficking they support it by buying the films and paying for sex with underage children.

It appears that the whole Eptsein affair is being buried in the media since he supposedly killed himself in a maximum security jail. Why? Because the elites not only want the story to go away but so does the public at large. No one wants to believe that people they look up to are deviant child molesters (or worse). They want to believe in the lies, just as the Bible talks about in 2 Thessalonians 2:11, so God will give them over to the lies. It’s hard to believe but it’s true because I see it all around me everyday I go out and about. Most people don’t want to know, period.

Jesus talked about how horrible it will be for those who harm His children in Matthew 18:6. Always be watchful and prayerful and keep a sharp eye on your children’s teachers and other authority figures. In the end it will be you and I as parents who are held to account by Jesus, Romans 14:12. Don’t try to pass responsibility to the schools or the state, YOU as parents are solely responsible for your child’s well being. Please pay attention.

God bless and stand firm!

UN: First local polio case found in Zambia since 1995

It appears that the VACCINE ITSELF is the culprit here as the polio virus has spread to 9 different nations in Africa. More cases have been reported in China, Myanmar and the Philippines. It appears that the virus it has been mutating in the wild and now the WHO is concerned it will spread and possibly spark new outbreaks.

Jesus Himself talked about the pestilences in the last days in Luke 21:11 and Matthew 24:7. There are all kinds of viruses that are mutating daily and bacteria (super bugs) that are becoming immune to whatever type of antibiotic we throw at them. Now imagine society breaking down to the point where we don’t have power or running water for an extended period of time, say 1-3 months. What happens then?

We can’t prepare for every single event but do your best to make sure you have masks, gloves, disinfectants and other first aid items on hand. Do the best you can but there are all kinds of prepping lists you can look at for free online. Here is a list for “Zombie Preparedness” from the CDC you can check out! There’s a lot of good material HERE.

This won’t be the end of outbreaks of both new viruses and old ones that have mutated. They’re mutating because they’re designed to do so. Remember the Georgia Guide-stones? If you don’t know what they are you better go take a look HERE. The goal of the “illuminated” elite is to get the population of earth down to 500 million. Weaponized viruses and bacteria are a very effective way of doing that and it comes with built in deniability. They establishment will blame an outbreak on “those damn anti-vaxxers” or other such nonsense while never having the light put where it belongs, on them!

I’ll link to the article on this polio case HERE. No we can’t prevent what’s coming during the end times but we can be ready for it. Spiritually first (Prayed up) and physically (prepped up) at all times! You never know when it’s your time to leave this world and move onto the next so staying right with God is crucial, both for your salvation and for instruction from the Holy Spirit! When it gets rough or looks impossible you’re going to need some supernatural help! Remember it might be impossible to you but NOT to God, Luke 18:27. Look at Psalm 91 and remember those promises!

That’s it for now. God bless and stay ready!

The Fog of War and Civil Unrest Worldwide!

The world as we know it is shaking with violence on a scale not seen in quite some time! It seems as if all of South America is erupting in violent protest with Ecuador and Chile being the latest cases. The same can be said for much of Africa and parts of Europe as well. The world at large is starting to wake up to all of the corruption and deception that surrounds them.

In essence people are sick and tired of the elites of the world telling us how we’re the ones killing the planet, as they travel in private jets and own mansions around the world. In tonight’s video I summarize the rising tide of rebellion and the state of the war in Syria.

California’s New ‘Red Flag’ Gun Law So Extreme ACLU Deems “Significant Threat To Civil Liberties”

Red Flagging, the New Swatting

From Zero Hedge…

California adopted 15 firearms-related bills last Friday, including a controversial ‘red flag’ gun confiscation law which adds co-workers, employers and educators to the list of who can file a gun violence restraining order on those they say are a danger to themselves and others. Currently, only law enforcement and immediate family members can apply to temporarily confiscate peoples’ firearms. Most of the new laws take effect January 1, according to the LA Times.

Signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) after being vetoed twice by his Democratic predecessor Jerry Brown (who said that educators can work through family members or law enforcement if a restraining order is required), the gun confiscation bill is so broad that the ACLU said it “poses a significant threat to civil liberties” since guns can be seized from owners before they have an opportunity to contest the requests, and those making the requests may “lack the relationship or skills required to make an appropriate assessment,” NBC San Diego reports.

All that’s needed for a co-worker or educator to file a complaint is to have had “substantial and regular interactions” with gun owners, along with permission from their employers or school administrators. Those seeking the orders will be required to file a sworn statement outlining their concerns.

The author of the bill, Democratic Assemblyman Phil Ting of San Francisco, said that “With school and workplace shootings on the rise, it’s common sense to give the people we see every day the power to intervene and prevent tragedies,” citing a recent study which found that 21 mass shootings may have been prevented by a gun restraining order.

Meanwhile, a companion bill signed by Newsom and written by Democratic Assemblywoman Jacqui Irwin of Thousand Oaks allows gun violence restraining orders to last one and five years, though gun owners would be allowed to petition the state to get their guns back earlier. In another Ting-authored companion bill, gun owners who agree to voluntarily surrender their firearms can notify the court via a form, vs. a hearing which Ting says wastes time and resources.

The National Rifle Association (NRA)’s Amy Hunter, meanwhile, said of another bill signed on Friday (SB 61) which prohibits Californians from buying more than one semiautomatic rifle per month, and bans the sale of such rifles to those younger than 21: “This bill places burdens on law-abiding residents,” adding “It will not make anyone safer.”

Republican state legislators criticized the one-gun-a-month bill, as well as the state’s failure to remove guns from the thousands of felons and the severely mentally ill as they are already empowered to do so.

“Instead we continue to do more and more legislation that interferes with the law-abiding citizen’s right to own and possess firearms, which is their constitutional right to do,” said Yuba City Republican Assemblyman James Gallagher (LA Times).

According to the Times, other bills signed Friday by Newsom will:

Allow those subject to a gun-violence restraining order to submit a form to the court voluntarily relinquishing their firearm rights
Require firearm packaging to contain a warning statement on suicide prevention
Mandate that county sheriffs who issue licenses for concealed weapons charge a fee covering the cost of vetting the applicant, thus eliminating the current $100 cap on fees
Prohibit gun shows at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in San Diego County
Require, starting in 2024, that the sale of components used to build a firearm — often used to build untraceable “ghost guns” — be carried out through a licensed vendor.

Journalist says a CBP officer withheld his passport until he agreed he writes ‘propaganda’

I’m sharing this story from the Stamford Advocate with a heavy heart. Our President via the propaganda phrase “fake news” has brainwashed our civil servants into believing the press (and American public at large) are the enemy. We are to be harassed to no end and if we resist or protest then we are detained for hours and questioned about our patriotism. This won’t stay confined to the press. Soon your government profile will tell the agents not only who you are but what you believe in. If it goes against what the current narrative is YOU are in a lot of trouble.

It took a moment for Ben Watson to realize the officer was not joking.

Watson had just told the Customs and Border Protection staffer reviewing his passport that he works in journalism. Then, the seemingly routine Thursday encounter at Virginia’s Dulles International Airport got tense.

“So you write propaganda, right?” Watson recalled the CBP officer asking.

“No,” the news editor at national security site Defense One says he replied. He affirmed again that he was journalist.

The officer repeated his propaganda question, Watson said.

“With his tone, and he’s looking me in the eye – I very much realized this is not a joke,” Watson told The Washington Post on Friday. The exchange that ensued as Watson returned from reporting trip in Denmark – the editor says he got his passport back only after agreeing with the “propaganda” charge to move on – has sparked alarm about rising hostility to journalists as the Trump administration continues to attack the media as “fake news.”

Watson had heard a couple stories of similar encounters in the past, but says he did not realize until sharing his experience at Dulles just how many people in his field were reporting the same brand of harassment. U.S. airport border agents were at the center of several incidents that have raised reporters’s concerns this year.

“I’ve honestly never had a human attempt to provoke me like this before in my life,” Watson remembers telling his colleagues. “This behavior is totally normal now, I guess?”

Customs and Border Protection said in a statement that it is investigating the “alleged inappropriate conduct.”

“We hold our employees accountable to our core values of vigilance, integrity and service to country, and do not tolerate inappropriate comments or behavior by our employees,” the agency said.

Standards of conduct for the Department of Homeland Security, CBP’s parent agency, direct staff to “act impartially.”

An article from Defense One describes Watson’s full recollection of Thursday’s conversation. After the second alleged query by the CBP officer, Watson explained that he covers national security “with many of the same skills” he used as a public affairs officer in the Army.

“Some would argue that’s propaganda,” he added.

When the officer reiterated his question a third time, Watson says, he paused.

His wife had already circled the airport for 20 minutes. He figured he could get stuck for hours if he tried to call in the officer’s supervisor. So he gave in.

“For the purposes of expediting this conversation, yes,” he recalled telling the CBP officer.

The officer made Watson agree one more time before letting him through, Watson said. He says he’s filed a civil rights complaint with DHS.

“We are disappointed and concerned that any U.S. official would question a journalist, or any citizen, in this way,” Kevin Baron, Defense One’s executive editor, wrote to The Post.

Others in journalism circles and beyond were quick to point out chilling implications in the story.

Walter Shaub, an attorney who served as director of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics until 2017, tweeted that incident should go to the Department of Homeland Security’s Inspector General office for review.

“A customs agent withholding the passport of a journalist until he agrees to say he writes “propaganda” is actionable misconduct, even in Trump’s America,” he said.

A growing list of journalists say they have been startled by government officials’s harassment in a country that prizes freedom of the press. The encounters are raising fears that hostile rhetoric led by President Donald Trump and his allies are damaging reporters’s ability to do their job unhindered.

This spring, the World Freedom Press Index called journalists’s treatment in the U.S. “problematic” for the first time in its 17 years of assessments – and singled out “President Trump’s anti-press rhetoric and continuing threats to journalists” as driving the deteriorating conditions. The U.S.’s spot in the ranking has fallen for the last three years.

Journalists have been reporting run-ins with border agents for years, too.

In 2016, the detention of a Canadian’s photographer for more than six hours on his way to cover protests in the U.S. made headlines. Ed Ou said airport officers took his cellphones away for search after he refused to unlock them, saying he needed to protect his sources. When Ou got the devices back, he suspected tampering and potential data-copying.

As Andrea Peterson reported in The Post:


If Ou had already been inside the U.S. border, law enforcement officers would have needed a warrant to search his smartphones to comply with a 2014 Supreme Court ruling. But the journalist learned the hard way that the same rules don’t apply at the border, where the government claims the right to search electronic devices without a warrant or any suspicion of wrongdoing.


Several other journalists have described difficulties getting through airports in 2019.

In February, CBP apologized to a BuzzFeed journalist questioned at a New York airport about their news organization’s coverage of Trump and Robert Mueller III’s special counsel investigation. A few months later, a freelancer said he was detained by CBP officials for hours at an airport in Texas.

Then, in August, British journalist James Dyer described an “unsettling experience” as he flew into California to cover a Disney event. The film and TV writer said a CBP officer at Los Angeles International Airport called him a member of the “fake news media” and asked if he’d worked for CNN or MSNBC, two frequent targets of Trump’s criticism.

“He aggressively told me that journalists are liars and are attacking their democracy,” Dyer wrote in a viral tweet-thread.

He said he was allowed to move on after explaining that he was just trying to write about Star Wars.

CBP’s response at the time was much like its statement on Thursday’s incident.

“Inappropriate comments or behavior are not tolerated, and do not reflect our values of vigilance, integrity and professionalism,” the agency said.

CBP did not address broader concerns about its officers’s treatment of journalists in its Friday statement on the Dulles Airport incident.

Here We Go With More Pro Wrestling/Political Theater

What makes anyone think that this impeachment process is going anywhere meaningful? This whole process is by design and it’s designed to keep everyone distracted and divided so the American people don’t see who their enemies truly are.

This fiasco is nothing more than criminals investigating criminals while wasting our tax dollars and resources. It will end up going nowhere just as the Mueller investigation went nowhere. That was nothing more than a smoke screen and another cover up operation to keep the real shenanigans from ever going public. Once again criminals investigating criminals.

Even after all of the corruption that has been thrown right in American’s faces, the comments I see on social media show me that for the most part no one has learned a darn thing. It’s amazing to me to see that but the delusion that the media has put up is stronger than I thought. Even born again believers are blind to what’s going on around them as I speak to them daily. If I bring it up I get the “here he goes again” look.

Everyone wants to believe that everything will go back to the way it was if we just elect the right people to office. People want to believe we can still fix everything from the top down. Where has trusting the next slick politician brought us? To the very brink of ruin. Psalm 146:3 says ” Do not put your trust in princes, in human beings, who cannot save. ” That’s what the USA has done and now we reaping what we’ve sown. A nation that’s not even CLOSE to being under God.

As believers in Jesus Christ we must seek first the kingdom of God (Matthew 6:33) and His righteousness but then we must pray for wisdom and discernment as well. We must be “wise as serpents but harmless as doves” Matthew 10:16 as Jesus instructed the disciples. Those instructions apply to us in the same way, especially now as we enter the Great Tribulation.

So pray for one another and keep God’s word close at hand. Ignore this political theater as most of it is just more distraction and lies. Don’t let the world suck you into arguments with your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ! Don’t let these criminals divide us any further! God didn’t send Donald Trump to save America, Trump is here to finish it off! Trust in God and not men! ” It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man.” Psalm 118:8.

The only one coming to save you is Jesus Christ. Ask Him to be your Lord and Savior today while you still can. for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:13
