    Emma & others in the Mike Savage thread were asking about information on prepping. I put the following link as a reply, but thought I would put it here too for those looking about information how to prepare and survive nature disasters, outbreaks, first aid information & many other useful free guides. I have it bookmarked & share it with family and friends. I hope some of you find it useful too.

  7. My baby sister sent me the money to help me get a replacement computer because mine is so old. It has a 1.2 Ghz dual core APU by AMD. A friend of mine loaned me the balance so I could get it.

    I found a manufacturer refurbished Lenovo Thinkcenter M58 tower that has an Intel Core2Duo 3 Ghz cpu that was originally 40% off. The original price was $149.99, but was knocked down to $89.99. Ebay on Sunday sent me a $15 off coupon for any order over $25, so I applied that to the computer I wanted to get. Total price of the computer including standard shipping was $79.98.

    Another friend of mine is sending me a video card to use instead of the onboard video. It’s an Nvidia GTX285 which is a lot better than the one built into the computer.

    I’m truly blessed to have such a loving sister and friends to help me out. Being poor isn’t fun, but the Lord takes care of my needs and I thank him daily for it.

  14. Trying to decide which thread to post THIS item was a “Toss Up” between the election thread, and the general, so I’ll err on the side of caution (NEW for me, right?) and drop it HERE:

    Once again the Obama administration has used a weaponized government agency to assault his political opponents. THIS time he is using the flawed “Disparate Impact” theory and the Department of Labor to bury an American company for having the audacity to back Donald Trump during this election cycle:

    PAYBACK: Obama Admin Sues Peter Thiel’s Palantir for Bogus ‘Racial Discrimination’

    The claims in the lawsuit are laughable. The Obama administration alleges that Palantir discriminated against Asians. But it has to admit that Palantir, in fact, hired many Asians — 11 out of 25 software engineers, for example. The government does not even bother to claim that Palantir deliberately excluded Asians. Rather, it argues that since only 44% of Palantir’s software engineers are Asian, but 85% of the applicant pool was Asian, Palantir must, statistically, have discriminated against Asians.



    ALL of this nonsense spews forth from the flawed logic of “Disparate Impact” that MUST be eradicated by a Trump-Appointed Supreme Court. ENOUGH ALREADY!

      • I am in Washington, just north of Portland, OR. In Costco the other day I was in line in front of a man buying Ann Coulter’s book, In Trump We Trust. I cautiously gave him a thumbs-up, which he appreciated. In the last couple of elections I’ve had yard signs destroyed, and had to put up with fireworks and jubilation from my neighbors.

        By the way,I just spent six weeks in Tulsa helping my brother’s widow get her houses and properties ready to sell so she could move to Texas. I lived there for about five years in the early 80’s, and it was surreal being back. Familiar, yet different. In addition, I lived in OKC for about 10 years, off and on. But I don’t know now if I will ever see Oklahoma again…

    Watched Hillary for about 15 minutes last night then called it quits. Don’t recall what she said, but the face got my attention. She stuck me as a woman who could have assisted Kermit Gosnell for a morning’s work, then knocked off for a three martini lunch filled with lighthearted laughter.
    In the Old and New Testaments there are passages about people who are stiff necked, or who have hardened their hearts. Maybe something about searing their souls. Ambition, when it becomes obsessive, can do that to you. So can pride, which as I read the story was Satan’s fatal problem. I am not equating Hillary with the great deceiver, though she deceives many, but clearly she never knew, or never cared to do the Lord’s work. She lacks the most important quality of a leader: humility before God.

It is one of the reasons I come here often, not just for information, data, the facts, though TCTH is pretty good on that score too. But besides that, coming here is like taking a shower in a mountain waterfall on Oahu in 1957. Washes off so much of my worldly crud, if I may be so crude.

          andi, got a question. You ever hear of a Senate judiciary hearing run by Arlen Spector some 6 or 8 years ago concerning an operation called Able Danger, about data mining which had tracked Mohamed Atta (so the claim went) and which the government scrubbed? I saw the hearing twice one night and was mystified that our Gov. could be such blockheads (if the claims were legit), but now in the last year my focus has changed to seeing a Gov as intent on transforming America and is Transformer in Chief.

          Additional thanks for the youtube tip.

    This is the kind of lunacy that BLM inevitably leads to:


    There are so many facts that Alicia Garza omits and ignores, you have to wonder whether she is deliberately trying to mislead people towards removing local police departments. We all saw what happens when there isn’t police. Look at what happened to the trucks they looted, one of the drivers kept asking where the police was and they never showed up. The inevitable outcome of that is that police will be reinstated, only they will not answer to local concerns, but be beholden to globalist puppet masters, just like George Soros, Garza’s behind-the-scenes bank rollers, wants.

    This is the end game of all these riots folks. That the Democrats and Hillary can use this race bait for their advantage is just icing on the cake. What they really want is to take control away from local communities and cede it to unelected, unaccountable globalists. Having a globalist puppet in the White House will accelerate their ambitions.

    Oh look! Rev. Al customizes his services according to the family’s wishes??!!

    Plans for Sharpton to attend a rally in Tulsa were publicly announced when the Crutcher family met with him in New York on Wednesday — a day before Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler filed the manslaughter charge against Shelby.

    “What has happened is the justice system broke down again, this time on a road in Tulsa,” Sharpton said at his National Action Network’s House of Justice. “We come to Tulsa as repairmen, not to fix the car but to fix the broken system that keeps breaking down.”
    Sharpton emphasized that the point of the rally was not to “rile something up.”

    “We will conduct ourselves — let me be real clear — in a way that exalts the name and memory and legacy of Terence,” he said last week. “Nobody is coming to do anything that would be out of the spirit that this family has stood up with.”

    Hey folks.

    I’ve got a LOT of responses from you all sending in articles for me to consider for publication on my blog (pretty sure all will be published, such great work so far). I just wanted to say thank you, and also that there are so many, it’s going to take a while to get through them all.

    It’s also an open invitation, so if you write something, feel free to keep sending it to nukingpolitics@gmail.com.

    Also, a request: if you send me something, please attach as a Word or text document of some kind. That makes it a whole lot easier.

    At one time, I had nearly a dozen people writing at my blog and always asking for more. It’s a place for those of us who are just regular Joes and Janes who have something to say but not much else than comment sections to say it. I lost quite a few writers to this election, unfortunately. The NeverTrump was strong with my people, and my endorsing Trump didn’t sit well.

    Again, thanks to all of you who are submitting your works. Every opinion and perspective is important.

Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil. Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.

    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen
