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 The law has yet to be repealed.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?

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:

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.
