TGRP Episode 357: “Number Two Step Forward”
There is a great deal of trouble brewing in Washington D.C. Much of this strife is caused by the two ruling groups the Republicans and Democrats. These groups have maintained power over the united states for the better part of a century. this has been done in part by the propagation of the myth that there is a two party system here in the United States. There are well over two dozen alternative parties in the United States. the most famous of these is This is a major opportunity to break the deadlock that has brought the United States to her knees.the Libertarians. They have struggled to gain recognition. Today I talk to the Nation Chair of the Veteran's Party of America (VPA). The VPA, once fully recognized will have the largest voter base of any party in the country with more that 22 million veterans as well as dependents and extended family.
My grand fathers had Europe. My dad's father had Normandy and the stalags and my mothers dad had Monte Casino. I read of their exploits and those of men like my uncle Gene (not related but one of the grandfather's best friends) and what he and the rest of the Deippe raiders went through and think about my own tale. My own story of combat is nothing like my predecessors and jet the missions that I took part in and witnessed unfold are being immortalized. The book Lone Survivor is not a major motion picture and it is making me feel a bit old .
There are number of issues that are coming up in the next election... well not the one that is coming up bu the one coming up in 2016. From who I think is the next Ensign Ricky to how ridiculous things are going to get.
When it comes to politics ans religion it's usually not the place to start a conversation. Many of the concerns that people like myself have with these hot button issues are also pretty polarizing and as such this means that there is a lot that needs to be said to inform people about what is going wrong. This is the other problem because many people don;t want to here it and maybe it's because they think you should be wearing a tin foil hat. today we'll look at this and talk about how to approach people with many of these very high voltage issues and to leave them wanting more.
Today is a day that the world looses the last of the great gun smiths. Though the AK-47 will be the only weapon people will likely remember when they here the name Kalashnikov it is a name that is with out doubt respected all over the world for what it has come to represent
There are a number of problems that all preppers run into. there are so many things to be concerned with and there is very little that one can to to address every single thing specifically but there is hope. Small stepps can be taken to ensure that there is preparation ins all sectors in a very broad sense.
Bug out and bug in are favorite topics of the Survival community but what about when you have to stay put for a few days and hold the fort. This is not just planning to have guns but also a plan to have the ability to work through problems and plan.
Today I do a bit of bouncing around from everything on the rise of the Daleks to the reality behind what many people who are into the whole revisionist history bit call the Thanks Giving Genocide... by the way this has nothing to do with the population decline of turkeys..

TGRP Episode 348: Listener Feedback
Today is the day that we go out and celebrate the decline of our nation in a very special way. We go out and buy bullets.
This chapter focuses on the factors that lead to the fall of the United States between 2008 and 2015. Just so you know this is a trick or treat thing... Happy Halloween
The market for self defense rounds is highly competitive and companies are always looking for that new thing that will bring people in. From new looks to zombies or green stuff on the box it’s all just marketing. Liberty Ammunition is different. Liberty designs it’s ammunition not just with the armed citizen in mind but also with the down range operator in mind. After the September 11th attacks P.J. Marx, the inventor of the technology behind Liberty’s Civil Defense line began engineering ammunition for the military that pushed the accepted realities of handgun ammunition performance. Today that reality is being stood on its head. Many of you would not believe me that there is a 9mm cartridge on the market that can push 200fps or an effective 45 ACP that tips the scale at just 78 grains. I’ve seen this and am impressed that a bullet not made out of lead is performing this well. I hope that you enjoy this interview. I felt very privileged to get to talk to P.J. about his baby and how much it’s going to affect the entire industry.
When it comes to entraining preppers, we don’t’ have a whole lot of options out there. Most TV shows make us out to be kooks and Hollywood just ignores us. So when it comes to books we have a pretty healthy little cottage industry that has popped up. Prepper Press has been helping to keep us sane as we prep and men like Troy Grice are giving us even more reason to prep. In this episode Troy joins me to talk about his new book Indivisible. This is his view of the coming collapse and for those that are in line with my view of things you are going to love hearing from Troy.
