News Media Bias

MSNBC extreme bias continues as news anchor Mara Schiavocampo tells Israeli Ambassador Hamas rockets “rarely do damage” and Chris Matthews appreciates Hurricane Sandy for helping elect Obama.


Most reputable companies do not advertise during sitcoms that disparage Christianity even though the content of sitcoms is not intended to be taken seriously. So why would these companies advertise on a news network, which is intended to be taken seriously, that routinely denigrates Christianity, distorts the truth and advocates for Islamists?

MSNBC news anchor Mara Schiavocampo asked Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren on November 17, 2012 “But what would you say to those who argue that the rockets are essentially very ineffective rarely do damage and that the response from Israeli’s is disproportionate to the threat that they are under?”  Click here to see video.
MSNBC news talk show host Chris Matthews said on November 7, 2012  “I’m so glad that we had that storm last week.”  The facial expressions, body language and comments of other people on the set indicated distaste for Matthew’s comments.  Click here to see video.

If these were conservative media personalities they would have been terminated.  But not so at MSNBC where extreme bias, dishonest reporting, Christian mocking and Islamist loving is status quo.

Is Survival REALLY Survival without Cheese and Homemade Bread?

Welcome to this week’s Survive The Coming Collapse newsletter, brought to you by Free Survival Cheat, a set of quick, actionable, and free preparedness and survival tips and tricks from the The Fastest Way To Prepare course.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the fundraising sale for victims and first responders helping with Sandy recovery efforts.  I’m glad to say that I rounded up the amount raised and sent $1,000 to The Church At The Gateway on Staten Island earlier this week.  If you participated, thank you.

If you’re not in the habit of coming back to the site every day, it would be a smart idea.  We’re posting a handfull of preparedness oriented news links, tactics, and techniques that we find valuable every day.

Survival Diva here to continue our discussion of how to store unrefrigerated staples. Having been brought up on an Alaskan homestead with no electricity or running water, self-sufficiency was ingrained in me at an early age, but even so, when I started serious prepping many years ago I had a difficult time figuring out how to safely store cheese and sourdough without refrigeration.

For the Love of Cheese

The first dilemma I tackled was how to avoid buying powdered cheese and still be able to store cheese for 23 people, long-term, without refrigeration. I searched off and on for months for a solution, and when I finally discovered the answer, it was amazingly simple. Like most food-related prepping dilemmas, our forefathers had already addressed the issue successfully for centuries, but sadly much of the information has been lost. Luckily, it turned out I didn’t have to look that far back. Today, Europeans still buy their cheese from food vendors that literally hang it, unrefrigerated, from the rafters. When they bring it home, it’s not always to tuck it safely away in a refrigerator. Many times the cheese remains unrefrigerated until it is consumed.

So, how do modern Europeans and our forefathers safely consume unrefrigerated cheese? The answer is to coat it with cheese wax! I could write a two-page exposé on how to coat cheese with cheese wax and store it safely for years (some claim 20 years or more). But if you’re anything like me, visuals help…a lot! It will give you the confidence you need to brave eating it yourself or serving it to loved ones without fear. I have stored cheese for many years, unrefrigerated, and have eaten it without any ill-effects. In fact, cheese will continue to age in its preserved state, so if you like a cheddar with a bite to it, you’re going to love this approach of preserving a staple few of us would want to be without. Here’s the best YouTube video I’ve found on preserving cheese, provided by katzcradul

Top Barter Items For Survival Situations

Top Barter Items For Survival Situations


Barter items for survival food when the SHTF
What barter items are important enough to others that they would give up food?

Survive the coming


Survival Diva here to discuss an important, life-saving tactic that too many Preppers leave out of their preparedness plan. We may think we have everything covered for survival, but what if we’ve prepared for six months or a year when a crisis comes that lingers for years? Few of us have the resources to put three, four, or five years of food storage and preparedness goods aside, but depending upon the emergency, we may need to figure out how to make it through a breakdown in infrastructure lasting that long.

As David has said before, the “stuff” that you store up is only there to help you get from one predictable source of provisions to the next.  It won’t last forever, but it will give you time to figure out or set up sustainable solutions.

One of the most obvious choices for developing a sustainable food supply is through gardening…specifically with heirloom seed that can be dried and used season after season. In my opinion heirloom seed is imperative for long term survival. We will need a variety of fresh vegetables and fruits to combat appetite fatigue and for good health, especially when food storage begins to dwindle. If you can afford the cost, adding heirloom seed to your bartering goods stash will give you plenty of bartering leverage.

But that’s just the beginning…there’s always more when it comes to prepping. The truth is there is no possible way to plan for every emergency. To do that we would need to be clairvoyant, able to see in the future of what our needs will be at every juncture. In the real world the very best we can do is to get ready for the most likely calamities and be prepared to barter for the rest.

Bartering doesn’t have to involve food and preparedness goods, although survival-specific goods will be invaluable during a prolonged crisis. Bartering can just as easily involve skills. For instance, I purchased an antique treadle sewing machine that operates by a foot pedal and does not require electricity to run.  I plan to take on sewing projects, and have made that known to folks in my small community who are Preppers.  A nearby neighbor has taken up blacksmithing in preparation for grid-down that will allow him to barter for what he needs during a long-term crisis. Hunting, fishing, carpentry, home canning, farming/gardening, auto repair, small engine repair, welding, plumbing, blade sharpening, cooking, taking in laundry, midwifery, wood gathering & splitting, wild game processing and curing,  medical, dentistry, veterinary, chemist, teaching, babysitting, ice making, water purification, beekeeping, and tactical/protection skills are others that will be in huge demand when the going gets tough.

Survival Diva here. The Mother of all Food Storage Myths started the ball rolling on myths we’ve come to take as gospel that are not always the best advice in a survival situation. Now it’s time to pick up the threads and discuss related myths, that when addressed, can get us past a long-term crisis much more comfortably.

Believe it or not you can store eggs, unrefrigerated, for 6 months or longer, and cheese for years when done properly. And there’s good news for those of you who have been looking for a solution for yeast’s relatively short shelf life…there is an easy work-around.

It all hinges on our forefathers wisdom that has been lost by most of us for one simple reason. We’ve always had the refrigerator! And we’ve learned to rely on the experts who tell us we’re all goanna die if we ever stray from keeping our food outside a refrigerator.

The good news is we don’t have far to go far to debunk most of what we are told with regards to living without traditional refrigeration and it goes back to our forefathers. They did quite nicely, even though they had to make it from one growing season to the next without a refrigerator, keeping staples like eggs for months, cheese for years, and they had to have a dependable way to bake bread.
