Venezuela Suspended Gun Rights for 180 Days

Kevin Felts political commentator

This is what happens when the government controls firearms. There is a lot to learn from Venezuela. Some people may say “That could never happen here”, sure it can. The government can suspend civil rights under certain situation. The United States Supreme Court upheld Executive Order 9066, which was signed by Franklin Roosevelt and detained thousands of Japanese-Americans during World War II. The law has yet to be repealed.

What I worry about, is groups like antifa causing enough civil unrest that basic civil liberties are suspended.

With the outrage with Trump being elected President, what would happen if he is reelected?

Opinion

CNN caught censoring the news

Kevin Felts, Blogger and Survivalist

Have you ever wondered if the major news outlets are telling you the truth, and especially the “whole” truth?

CNN has recently been caught censoring the news. This report comes from Milwaukee after the shooting of Sylville Smith. Let’s not get into the details of why Sylville Smith was shot by police. Just realize that CNN has is not telling the “whole” truth.

Sherelle Smith, sister of Sylville Smith, gave a video interview, but CNN left out some important quotes from her video.

What CNN reported that she said:

Personal Responsibility

Kevin Felts blogger and survivalistBaby daddy not helping you with the bills? Maybe you need to get your lazy ass off the couch and get a job.

It is not the job of the tax payers to compensate stupid people. Dont know how to prevent your girlfriend from getting knocked up? Maybe you need to make a trip to the free clinic and get your nuts cut.

Got more kids then you can afford, STOP HAVING MORE!!!!!!! Welfare is not your private checkbook.

My wife and I have a friend of the family that is squeezing out her first child. The baby daddy said he was having an asthma attack, so he gets in the car and drives almost an hour to the next hospital. Keep in mind, the mom was in a hospital. Why not walk over to the emergency room instead of driving to the next town? Because the sorry piece of trash baby daddy wanted to get as far away from the mom and the baby as he can get. The piece of trash baby daddy is around 25 years old, working for minimum wage at the local china-mart, does not provide health coverage for the mom or the baby, does not have a car, and does not even have a drivers license. But yet he can knock the mom up?

The mom on the other hand has a good job, has private health insurance, has a car and has a drivers license.

What the hell was she thinking when she had sex with a bum?

Now the mom and the baby are going to have to deal with a dead beat dad for the rest of their lives.

Its called Personal Responsibility

The State Of The Nation June 2012

Health care is more expensive then ever
Legal drugs like bath salts are poisoning our youth
U.S. gubberment tries to declare war on its own people with laws like NDAA
U.S. imperialism is encroaching ever closer to Russia and China
With the factories gone, we are running short on skilled labor
National debt is increasing faster then a kid with mommies credit card in a toy store
Prices have been increasing faster then wages.

The George Zimmerman Issue

This George Zimmerman issue is getting really out of hand. From the evidence I have seen, the only reason, and I mean “THE” only reason why George Zimmerman is on trial, is from pressure from the black community.

White on black violence – black community demands some kind of action.

Black on white violence – the black community is silent.

Where is justice in that?

When is the news media, and the black community going to start demanding equal rights and justice for all? That “equal” part includes not ignoring black on white violence.

Generations of welfare parasites

survivalistIf there is one thing that pisses me off more then anything else in this world its a welfare leech. Welfare leechs are parasites that suck the life out of taxpayers. They are too lazy to work, but somehow justify their actions.

I have depression,
I am disabled (but they can do everything else in life just fine),
I have panic attacks,

If you can get out of bed, fix yourself breakfast, walk out to the mail box, get your welfare check, drive to the bank, check your check, go shopping, go home and play on the internet all day, you are NOT disabled.

There is a family that I know who are on their third generation of being welfare parasites.

Think about that for a minute, three generations of receiving benefits from the government. Benefits that people who get up everyday and go to work to pay for.

The least the parasites can do is wash my truck or cut my grass, but then again, if they did that, they could not claim disability.

I get so sick and tired of seeing people buying groceries with their food stamp card, while I have to buy my own groceries.

Buy Your Supplies and Stack Them Deep

As I am sitting here watching the news, there is little voice in the back of my head telling me the US is going to hit rock bottom. Unless Ron Paul gets elected, things are just going to continue to get worse. GOD help us if someone like mit or rick perry gets elected, because they are not going to help anyone besides the bankers.

What I see happening is tensions between the US and china and tensions between the US and iran to continue to rise. Compounded with that, congress is talking about cutting the defense budget.

Let me see if I get this right, iran is continuing to enrich uranium, and the US congress wants to cut money from the defense? When your enemies are building nuclear weapons, shouldn’t we at the very least maintain our current rate of military spending?

There are several directions I see the US during 2012:

1. iran builds a nuclear bomb, gives the bomb to a small group of terrorist who sneak it a cross the US-mexico border. From there its just a matter of time before a major US city has a nuclear weapon detonated in it.

Its not like a group of terrorist would even have to sneak a nuclear bomb across the border. Why not hire a truck and drive the bomb across? If 10 – 20 million illegal immigrants can find their way into the US, surely its not “that” difficult to get weapons across.

Food Shortages High Prices and Riots

Stockpiling food for SHTF

Remember hearing something about a drought across parts of the US in 2011? If you buy anything with peanuts, you’re about to see the effects of a low harvest caused by the drought. Get ready for some high food prices, they are on their way.

Normally I do not subscribe to the doom-and-gloom predictions, but I am seeing it first hand.

Drought

Farmers here in Texas are losing crops, and having to sell their cattle because grass is not growing. Texas and Louisiana agreed to allow wide loads of hay to be transported between the 2 states. Here in Jasper County Texas, I see trailers loaded down with rolls of hay going through the city on a regular basis. Importing hay from Louisiana is one of the few options cattlemen have right now.

Because of farmers selling off their cattle herds, the price of beef might be artificially low right now. If the sale of cattle starts to slow down, we might see the price of beef jump.

Young and old trees are turning brown and dying. Back in February of 2011 my kids and I planted some oak trees at the Bug Out Location. Due to the lack of rain fall, and not being able to make regular trips to the camp to water the trees, the leaves have turned brown and the baby trees might die.

Calm before the panic buying

Calm before the SHTF panic stormThere is enough fear mongering these days without my help. With that in mind, please remember that this article is just my personal opinion and it not meant to interpreted as fact.

I feel that we are in a calm before the storm. Not necessarily a SHTF storm, but a panic buying storm.

From August until the first part of 2012:

August and September: Kids are starting back to school in the next few days, parents are having to buy back to school supplies, clothes, meet the teachers and get their kids shots caught up. Right “now” parents have a lot to think about and worry about besides prepping.

Labor day: is right around the corner.

October: Halloween in October.

October and November: Hunting season starts.

November – thanksgiving.

December – Christmas and then New Years.

People have stuff to keep their minds occupied until the first part of 2012. After the turn of the year, I look for people attention to turn towards world events and the direction this nation is going.

After new years I think is when the panic buying mode is going to kick in – and especially after people start getting their income taxes back.

Worried about a food crisis in 2011

snap beans potatoes survival gardenAre you Worried about a food crisis in 2011? I am.

Price of gas has gone up almost 50 cents in the last 2 weeks, and is currently sitting in the $3.47 a gallon range. A couple of years ago when gas touched $3 a gallon, fertilizer for growing food went to $22 – $23 for a 50 pound bag.

The higher cost for fertilizer and fuel pushed food prices up. As the price of fuel came down, the price of food came down.

But now, instead of the price of fuel slowly creeping up, its skyrocketed through the roof. Overnight prices go up 5 – 7 cents. The cost of fuel will sooner or later be passed down to the consumer.

Now that people are talking about shortages of Mountain House #10 cans, panic buying might kick in, and we might be looking at even more food shortages.

A couple of days ago a buddy of mine and I were talking about the current shortages in freeze dried and dehydrated foods. My buddy has the opinion that the current shortages are caused from last years food crops being depleted. That once the crops from 2011 are harvested, that the shortages will fade away.

Lets say for a minute that my buddy is right. Last years crops are depleted, we have nothing in reserves, and once this years crops are harvested everything will be ok. If this theory is correct, we are just 1 season from starvation.
