Potential Weapons for Biological Warfare, Invasive Species

Are they threats, especially in light of the bioterrorism or WMD threat to global food production?

Does this pose a threat of ecosystem destruction, the crashing of commodity markets, and eventual collapse of public health?

The answer to all of these questions is a resounding – YES!  But why don’t we hear more about this?

Listen as Donna Miller of Your Preparation Station brings as her guest *Professor Lawrence F. Roberge to discuss his findings, **the papers he has published on the findings and the reaction of many of the top ***government officials with whom he has shared his research and proposals.

This show is sponsored by Millers Grain House & PREPARE Magazine.

Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Relief

Jennifer Elswick, a professional preparedness and disaster worker and CERT teacher, discusses her passion for helping people become prepared––especially with food storage. Jennifer tells us how to help ourselves and others in need and also the why and how of using Thrive foods for long-term storage and every day as well!

Preparedness has been a driving force for Jennifer and her husband since Hurricane Andrew in 1992. She now helps others with networking and resourcing is every aspect of family preparedness. She realizes that supporting the prepping family keeps America alive and strong.

Jennifer and her husband and I have been personally working in Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Relief for more than 20 years––since Hurricane Andrew hit South Florida. They felt in their hearts that they should help the victims, marshalled their own and other volunteered support, and that was the true start to their disaster relief mission.

Emergency Preparedness has always been a way of life for them––they hadn’t a name for it until that point in time, but they discovered their inner prepper and have continued to be  preppers since that event. They recognize that people need to have a little more of everything stored to get their family through such occurrences, and that weather-ret or ; they can happen at any time.

Ken and Jen have formed an amazing network––a prep family––that has brought us to where we are today.  It has been wonderful journey that has blessed them for more than 20 years.

They teach people how to affordably purchase long-term food storage and emergency items can be purchased affordably.

How to acquire Non-GMO, MSG-free and healthy food––including an organic line of items.
Using Thrive foods on a daily basis and saving money.  Stop wasting time, money and throwing food away.
Establish networking and preparedness with proper groups of people and create a preparedness community.

Realistic Safety Strategies for Girls and Women

Teaching girls and women how to protect themselves-both now- and in a disaster.

Do you have a daughter, girl-friend, wife, sister or mother that you care about? Are you concerned about their everyday survival and well-being, as well as their ability to survive and protect themselves in a disaster situation?  Listen to this show and find out how traditional gender roles impact the ability of girls and women to stay safe and survive in crisis situations, and what are the biggest dangers that girls and women face.   Does intuition play a role in survival?  What do girls and women worry about most when it comes to personal safety and survival? Is it possible for females to physically protect themselves from a male attacker who’s bigger and stronger?  What’s the best weapon for girls and women?  What’s the number one thing girls and women should be doing to prepare for disasters and catastrophes?

Most people believe survivors are the hard, tough, ‘Rambo’ types. It’s important to for everyone, but especially girls and women, to understand that survival is not necessarily about “toughness”. In fact, there are five qualities that characterize true survivors that are really surprising.

This week on the Secrets of a Survivalist Radio show, our guest is Nicole Sundine of Realistic Safety Solutions.

As a Victim Advocate and Detective, Nicole conducted countless investigations and provided crisis intervention to hundreds of girls and women who were victims of harassment, abuse and violence.

Now she is an influential author and speaker, who uses modern methods that resonate with girls and women to teach personal protection skills in an entirely new way.

Dale & Lisa Goodwin of SurvivalistPrepper.net

Dale and Lisa Goodwin are guests on the Doctor Prepper CPR Talk Show to discuss how they have created a website SurvivalistPrepper.net  and are dedicated in their effort to work on preparedness as a couple, totally supportive of each other. They have a farmstead on the eastern plains of Colorado and enjoy their preparedness lifestyle. Though not preparing specifically for an economic collapse or a grid-down event, they feel they want to be ready for any sort of personal doomsday that could arise by having the necessary equipment, such as a generator, emergency supplies and food storage.

Dale and Lisa are also writing other of books, and being a “team” helps because they can bounce ideas off each other and clarify their family objectives and efforts.

Their preparedness mindset has encouraged them to create a course for those initiating an interest in preparedness, and will be available in January 2014 on their website. They believe the right frame of mind is essential for anyone to live the preparedness lifestyle as opposed to trying to see it as just a passing fad.

They consider themselves fairly rational when it comes to preparing, and they are purchasing additional land because we want to build their home from the ground up and develop their property appropriately for their lifestyle. This is how they want to learn and practice some of the skills that can’t accomplish at their current home. They plan to start by building a cabin there and truly “live off the grid” as soon as possible

Visit their website and review the developing Survivalist Prepper Academy at Members.SurvivalistPrepper.net, a community for like-minded people to get together, learn and teach each other about a wide range of preparedness skills and ideas. There will be a free course soon, listing an abundance of information in one location for those beginning their involvement in preparing. They will also be adding more courses in the future.

 

Secure Your Preps, Secure Your Present, Secure Your Future

Joe Nobody believes “…you can have all of the water, food and medical supplies in the world and it won’t do you a bit of good if someone comes and takes them from you. Security has to be the first priority!” As a preparedness author of fiction and non-fiction books, his writings cover defense preparation for when things all fall apart.

In this interview on the Doctor Prepper C.P.R. Talk Show, Joe explains:

  • Why must preppers be fully able to defend their families and shelters?
  • How do events develop on a critical timeline?
  • What do the periods of social grace, realization, desperation, and reorganization mean?
  • Is there hope for life to return to “normal” in the future?
  • How can we deal with the uncertainty of any future localized, regional, or national event?

Joe’s rules and tests for any type of preparation activity are:

  • Do no harm to self or others.
  • Always have a dual purpose.
  • Recognize that people are the biggest problem in planning and execution.
  • Remember that you and your family are people, therefore the biggest problem(s).
  • Your equipment and skills must mimic military preparedness (i.e.: easy to use & durable).
  • Everything must work at night.

Joe has been listed on Amazon’s Top 100 Best Seller’s List as well as the Top 500 ranking among all Amazon listed authors. With over 1000 Amazon reviews, readers have collectively assessed his works with a 4.3 out of 5-star rating. Over the last two years, his titles have ranked #1 in six different genres, including both fiction and non-fiction categories. Joe’s technical manuals and novels total over 250,000 copies in print.

His appeal to the prepper community is born of his own belief system and experience. He has provided systems, consulting and training for the U.S. Army, Department of Homeland Security, Office of Naval Research, United States Border Patrol as well as several private firms and government agencies. He is currently active in this area, and for the security of his family and ongoing business, wishes to remain anonymous. He has over 30 years of competitive shooting experience including IPSC, NRA, and other related organizations. He has been a firearms instructor and consultant for more than 30 years and holds the rights to a United States Patent for a firearms modification.

Tactical Training for the Self-Reliant

Jeff Smith of Desert Ops Training & Tony discuss how critical it is for preppers to engage in self-reliance and tactical training.  Buying prep items is only part of the solution.   Buying preps without using them and thinking you are prepared is like thinking you can defend your family if you buy a gun but never practice shooting it.  Jeff describes the take-a-ways students receive from many of his most popular courses offered by his school, Desert Ops Training including Bug Out Bags, Traps & Snares, Land Navigation, etc.  Jeff & Tony also discuss the upcoming The Prepper Games competition they are planning in the summer of 2014.
