 Episode-1227- Thoughts on Oath Keepers Going “Operational” | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:58:14

TweetIf You Have Served Before, Serve Now. Recently Stewart Rhodes published an article on the Oath Keepers website called, Oath Keepers is Going “Operational” by Forming Special “Civilization Preservation” Teams. I find the general theme to be very positive, however many very clearly got the wrong message. In his article, Stewart says, “We urge you to presume the worst in the short term, and to work in three or four month sprints – assume that a collapse will be triggered this fall/winter and do all you can to get yourselves and your communities ready.“ Sadly many people read that to say, “The end is coming in 3-4 months and we have intel saying that is the case“ THAT IS NOT what it said.  I also know directly from Stewart that it isn’t the case. In fact before reading the article myself I told Stewart he needed to be very careful in what he was saying.  Frankly I thought that is what the article said because getting ready for my trip I had yet to read it myself.  Frankly I thought this because I had received dozens of hysterical emails saying that was the case.  When I read the article I did my typical, “damn, how do people draw these conclusions from this?”, that I do about 20 times a day. Now blogs and alternative news sights are fricken buzzing with “the end is near” BS and using Stewart’s article as “proof” and spinning it vs. reporting on it.  The fact is this is very important and it is sad man in alternative media seem just as addicted to perception bias and yellow journalism as the lame stream media. Today as a founding member of Oathkeepers and personal friend of Mr. Rhodes I intend to clear some of the confusion up, talk about what is great about the plan and what might make it better. Join Me Today As I Discuss… The bad timing that caused much of the confusion What happens when non military minded individuals read military thought The basics of the plan, teams of Two communications experts Two medical experts Two engineers Two food reserve specialists Four to six scouts Logistical support team of Peace Officer Liaison and Sheriff /posse Team Military and National Guard Liaison Neighborhood Watch Team Local Government Team Intelligence Team What Oath Keepers thinks “the plan” is by establishment  Intentionally trigger a catastrophic economic collapse as an economic “neutron bomb” Let the country descend into chaos Ride in like the cavalry, to “save” us by means of martial law and scrapping our constitution once-and-for all What I think the plan is Cling to their paradigm as long as they can and stave off collapse Accept that collapse is inevitable and plan for it Watch the country descend into chaos Ride in like the cavalry, to “save” us by means of martial law and “not letting a crisis go to waste” Net results are the same, timelines differ greatly Problems with the Oath Keepers Team Plan People don’t “think” sufficiently, they fail to adapt We are not surrounded by SF style people We need to think in two phases, organize then “draftee” the holes The com specialists are good with gear, not with words Food reserve specialist assumes reserves will exist, need to add procurement The good of the plan It is a great template, if people will use it and adapt to what they don’t have It has people talking and thinking differently, made the crisis real It can work IF we can bring in MORE Oathkeepers with real skills It focuses on working with authority as long as said authority keeps their oath It is preemptive It is a great kick in the ass Resources for today’s show… The Year 1227 Join Our Forum 13Skills.com Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom Shop for TSP Silver TSP Gear PermaEthos.com Knife Kits – (sponsor of the day) Back Woods Home Magazine – (sponsor of the day) Oath Keepers Article This Show is Based On Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thought[...]

 Episode-1223- Starting the Journey from Grasshopper to Ant (orig epi 298) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:13:18

TweetToday we dip into the archives again.  Episode 298 was originally published on Oct. 15th, 2009.  By that time the TSP philosophy and components of it like the inverse relationship between impact scale and probability were well fleshed out. Today will will lay out 20 steps to take as a person who has just decided that it is time “to do something” but isn’t quite sure what that “something” is. Even though today is done with the new person in mind I think it will help everyone sort of recenter on the core of what is the most important things to make sure you have accomplished. I have also created a special commercial free version of today’s show for sharing with others who you want to get thinking about preparedness. That version can be found on our forum here. Tune in today as we discuss Start with the old fable of the grasshopper and the ant The first thing you do is assess the situation and stay calm Journal your spending and your eating Write a plan for debt elimination and begin creating an emergency fund Put together a basic documentation package Assemble a BOB for each family member (cheap and fast the first time around) Inventory your pantry over a week or two (how much food do you have at your low point) Begin storing up a 30 day supply of food you will eat anyway Begin assembling a low cost 30 day long term storage supply Determine where you would go if you had to leave and go at least 50 miles from home Make plans for how you would help elderly parents or other family members Update your resume and be prepared to loose your job on any given day Avoid focusing on any individual coming event or scenario Plan a garden and start getting ready to plant (depending on the season) Learn about disaster commonality (it is not about the disaster it is about loss of support systems) Learn about disaster probability (Personal-Localized-Regional-State-National-Global) Determine your most probable “personal”, “local” and “regional” Start window shopping for “country land” or an “urban homestead” Think of the children, won’t someone please think of the children (seriously think of your children) Assess your “normal preparations” Take ownership of your plan and your life Resources for today’s show… The Year 1223 Join Our Forum 13Skills.com Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom Shop for TSP Silver TSP Gear PermaEthos.com Bulk Ammo – (sponsor of the day) Safecastle Royal – (sponsor of the day) Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1222- TSP Classic Basics and Thoughts on Reloading (orig epi 75) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:53:25

TweetWhile in Colorado I am running reruns but the intros are new only the body of the show is from the archives.  This one goes all the way back to Episode 75. Today I took a shot at a show on reloading. It may be a bit fragmented as discussion a detailed process with out video or images is difficult, but many have asked for a reloading show so we now have one. Tune in today to hear… The basic process of reloading Why custom ammo is more accurate and what custom means to a reloader How you can load rounds and combination of components you can’t get from Why reloading saves money Thoughts on not over doing your fist purchases How powder is measured by volume and checked by a scale The importance of origination and a system for safety Recommended manuals that give easy to understand instructions and good data My recommendation on the Lee Anniversary Kit as a starter Choosing a single stage press when you start out Thoughts on a progressive press for high volume loading The survival value of reloading A bit on casting your own bullets The value of “reduced loads” Load Data for my Reduced 44 Special Load (From the Lee Manual – First Edition, Do NOT reduce further) This is a 44 Special Load from an older Lee Manual. Do NOT reduce any further! 300 Grain Lead Bullet Standard Large Pistol Primer 9.8-11.5 grains of H227 I settled on an even 10 Grains of Powder. In a 20 Inch barreled 1894 Marlin 44 Magnum it is quieter then most Break Barrel Pellet guns and will penetrate 7 inches of solid pressure treated lumber at 25 yards and is accurate to about 50 yards before the low velocity takes over and drop becomes extreme.

 Episode-1221- Listener Calls for 2-20-09 (orig epi 145) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:51:50

TweetToday in TSP Classic I am running the first TSP Listener that was ever done.  It was really at a turning point for the show.  In this show not only do I take your calls for the first time, you also hear me lay out the vision for what TSP can become, in fact what it did become. Anyway this will be a unique vision into the genesis of TSP as you know it today.  It is before the MSB existed with me talking about what it would be like, how it might make the show profitable enough for me to devote more time and effort to it, etc. There is also something VERY cool about this episode!  The first call ever done on TSP by an audience member was by forum member Heavy G.  Folks, Heavy G is no less then Glen Tate author of the 299 Days Series. Tune in Today to Hear… Hear me in the act of doing business locally What this show could become if I did it with a few hours a day rather then 40 minutes at 65MPH Listener calls and their answers Bug in or Bug Out A listener moves and improves his economic life Walkie Talkies at 15 miles are bull shit and using text messages when voice doesn’t work Using industrial shipping containers for bug out structures or homestead structures Increasing storage life of medications Worm composting and the worm’s contribution to organic gardening A response to a listener who claims I am partisan. In the interest of being non partisan here is a link to kids being taught to speak and tongues and pray for Bush, it makes me equally sick as the Obama video from yesterday.

TweetJohn Pugliano of InvestableWealth.com John Pugliano is a self taught investor with over 25 years of investment experience. Recently he founded Investable Wealth, LLC to offer independent advice and money management based on his stock trading philosophy and methods. John has served in the military and worked for several large corporations. He is the father of six. John and his wife Cheryl live happily and debt free in Utah. John spent 20 years in corporate America as an industrial products business development salesman.  More importantly for past 25+ years he has taught myself to invest in the stock market and today has a net worth in excess of 1 million dollars. He is now a licensed financial adviser and owner of an investment advisory firm.  Like myself, John has had an extremely low opinion of the financial adviser industry- which is one reason why he has started his own firm. Join Me As We Discuss John’s Formula for Beginning Investor… 1. First get your preps in order 2. Research & Education 3. Only invest what you’re prepared to lose 4.

 Episode-1218- Airsoft and Airguns for Training (orig epi 126) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:53:22

TweetToday is the first of quite a few TSP Classic episodes that will be coming in October.  Consider that this month I have the following events and you will understand why. Oct 3-11 I am in Colorado for vacation and the Self Reliance Expo Oct 15-20 I am running the Urban Permaculture Workshop at our homestead Oct 25-27 I will be in Louisiana for the earth works workshop as a guest instructor That is 18 out of 31 days, so I gotta do it.  But I plan to make it fun, a lot of fun and the shows will have new introductions, the history segments and comments setting the old episodes in current context. Today we discuss Airsoft and Airguns for training.  Given the current cost of ammo I felt that this episode was very timely considering when I recorded it ammo was in three words, abundant and cheap. Wednesday and Thursday this week will be new episodes and we should have a typical Friday show recorded before we leave. Also today I cover a bit about the non event everyone is freaking out about, the “government shut down”. Tune in today to hear… Some of the different options in Airsoft weapons from spring to gas to AEG (automatic electric guns) we give an over view of them all The value of all metal gas blow back airsoft pistols for training new shooters in practical pistol applications How Airsoft can let you shoot more often, right at home and for less money so you stay sharp Why even those “cheap plastic spring pistols” have a lot of value as training aids The accuracy of reproduction of may airsoft weapons and how it accelerates the learning curve for new shooters The unique safety advantages of a brand new shooter that makes coach a better coach Using airsoft to replace fear of firearms with respect for them Taking the step up to conventional air guns and their additional advantages and disadvantages Thoughts about moving new shooters from airsoft into rim and then eventually center fire shooting How spreading the sport of shooting and responsible firearms ownership protects the second amendment Resources for today’s show… The Year 1218 Join Our Forum 13Skills.com Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom Shop for TSP Silver TSP Gear PermaEthos.com Western Botanicals – (sponsor of the day) Harvest Eating – (sponsor of the day) 10 Ways a Government Shutdown Will Affect Your Daily Life – WTF is wrong with this journalist?  None of this effects our daily life unless you work as a non essential federal employee.

Currently he keeps about 30 hives of untreated/unfed bees amongst endless fields of soybeans and corn (mono-crop hell). Jason joins us to discuss sourcing honeybees by Swarm trapping for sustainability and self sufficiency for the backyard or even the sideline beekeeper.
