The Media Continue to Lie About the Coronavirus, How Many Lives Will it Cost?

The stories I’m reading about what’s really going on inside of China are horrifying. Not only are hospitals turning people away (while giving them useless antibiotics), but the virus has mutated causing people to simply drop dead on the spot. This is now starting to leak into the mainstream but they are still downplaying this when they should be calling for travel bans to and from China. The question now is how many lives will this “lying by omission” cost?

The videos and pictures that are leaking out are telling some of the real story but China has their own internal internet and they’re heavily censoring everything. The clip below was taken down from Weibo in China because it shows the truth in regard to how overwhelmed the hospitals truly are and how badly help is needed.

One good point a friend of mine made is that by lying like this the media gives people a false sense of security, especially in the United States. The real numbers they should be reporting are closer to 2.8 million plus infected and using their own conservative numbers of a 3% mortality rate there are 84,000 dead. Does it make more sense now why Beijing would CANCEL all celebrations of the Chinese New Year? The Chinese are all about appearances and social order. For their government to cancel these events is a huge deal that no one pays any attention to.

They have also closed Disney properties in Shanghai. They don’t close Disney down for ANYTHING unless it’s truly serious!

So once again I ask the question…How many lives will this lying by omission cost? The media appears to have caught the “lie about everything” bug. Their big job now is to keep everyone distracted by circus (impeachment hearings) and then lying about what people should truly be concerned about. You and everyone else around the world should be quietly picking up masks, colloidal silver, rubbing alcohol etc. Don’t forget food and water as most likely a medical martial law is coming and you may not be able to get supplies for weeks as the virus runs it’s course.

In fact here is a good prepping video that deals with pandemics.

Prepping is great but please remember to stay PRAYED up as well and use the no fear just faith scriptures like Psalm 91, Isaiah 41:10 and more! I’m also giving away a really nice prepping guide on Patreon. It is now free due to the ongoing crisis.

That’s it for now. Stay safe and stay alert! God bless and see you soon!

Six Tips For Not Losing Your Mind in A Survival Situation

6 Tips to Not Losing Your Mind When in a Survival Situation

Life can be stressful as it is, but when you’re in a crisis, the stress can get much worse. Being a flood victim, experiencing a hurricane tear through your neighborhood, being in a warzone, etc. are all traumatic events and situations that can leave you with frazzled nerves.


If you are stressed out, very often you’ll be able to notice symptoms such as rapid heartbeat, uneasy stomach, sweating profusely and even dizziness. You get easily irritated and angry. Small things may startle or scare you.
You feel depressed and can’t concentrate. You may have bad dreams, negative thoughts and find it difficult to sleep. All these symptoms are related to trauma due to stress.

In this article, you’ll find 6 tips that you can use to combat stress and calm yourself down. While things may me chaotic, you’ll not be undone by them if you keep your sanity.

  1. Visualization
    This is similar to what people do when practicing the law of attraction. By visualizing peaceful images or desired outcomes, you’ll be able to mentally remove yourself from the difficult situation you’re currently in. Like they say, ‘It’s all about mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.’
    Visualize things getting better. Help arriving to ease your burdens, etc. Keep your spirits up with positive visualization.
  2. Deep breathing
    If you know yoga, that would be an excellent way to destress. If you don’t, try to take deep breaths to calm yourself down and oxygenate your body. Take a deep breath, hold it for 4 counts and slowly exhale. A few times of doing this and you’ll feel much more refreshed.
  3. Planning
    Planning makes you feel like you’re in control of the situation. One of the reasons so many people get stressed out is because they think that they’re not in control of the situation. They are clueless about what to do and this feeling of helplessness makes them panic.
    By planning your next moves and being proactive, you’ll feel in control and be less likely to get stressed. The very act of planning is a proactive one and keeps feeling of despondency at bay.
  4. Discussion
    Talk to your family members and whoever is with you about the situation. By communicating with others, you’ll feel better because voicing your thoughts is an outlet for your pent-up emotions.
  5. Exercise
    When it comes to de-stressing, nothing quite beats physical exertion. During a crisis, you’ll have a lot of physical chores to do. Keep moving and get as much activity and exercise as you can. When you’re engaged in physical activity, your mind doesn’t have time to slip into the doldrums. An idle mind is a devil’s workshop.
  6. Routine
    Have a daily routine that you follow. Just because things around you are chaotic doesn’t mean that your life must be too. Having a routine and following it will keep your life predictable and less stressful during these tumultuous times.
    The usual stress management tips apply even during crises. So, make sure you’re familiar with a few techniques that work for you and employ them if you find yourself losing hope and your spirits are sagging.
    Mental toughness is all about finding fuel in an empty tank. Every prepper would do well to remember that when you’re going through hell, just keep going.

This is just one of many articles on prepping that I’ll be sharing in the near future. Many of you know I always say “prayed up and prepped up” on the show, this is the prepped up side of things. God bless and stand firm!

Prepping For A No Running Water Scenario

We have had some water issues here on our rented ranch home this past week. There are water lines for the horses that get chewed through by voles at times (life in the country) but yesterday the well pump just went “poof”. There was no water for the entire ranch including the horses.

Of course as luck would have it the way the pump has to come out requires a larger truck than they had on hand, so we won’t have a new one until Monday at the earliest. Thankfully my wife and I stay prepared for this type of scenario. Here are a few things we always keep on hand.

  1. Keep water on hand at all times! We use cat litter jugs (washed out) to keep toilet and cleaning water on hand. We also keep 10 gallons of drinking water on hand at all times.
  2. Water Filtration. We have a Big Berkey water system but we also have the straws and water filter bottles on hand for bugging out. The straws and water bottles are the most cost effective way to filter water if you can’t afford a Big Berkey. You may still have to boil your water first depending on what scenario you’re dealing with. Below is a picture of what the Life straw water bottles looks like.
  3. Back up Plan. We have a back up plan to deal with this very situation and it’s working well. One thing we’ve done is to know where else we could get water if our backup plan failed. We’re near a lot of RV campgrounds and RV fill stations and we have several we could go to if necessary.
Excellent Water Filtration and Portable

This is a short list and covers the very basics but having that water on hand was critical to not being panicked but rather ready to handle the situation. If I were you I’d start preparing NOW for a no running water scenario. You’ll have to adapt your strategy for your own living situation. I’m in the country so if I lived in the city I’d have to make a different plan.

Here is one blog post that teaches you how to clean without running water as sanitation is still going to be critical to maintain your health. You can dig into that article by clicking HERE.

Here is another blog post about surviving a no water scenario and general prepping tips for the city/urban dwelling. Read that one by clicking HERE.

There you go I hope this gives you guys some value and helpful tips. The world is shaking everyday and you could be facing a grid down/ no running water scenario at any time. Like I always say we need to stay prayed up and prepped up. This covers the prepped up side. God bless and stay ready!
