10 Les Stroud Survival Tips (Part One)

Les Stroud survival tips

Ready for some Les Stroud survival tips?

You may know Les Stroud from his popular Discovery Channel show Survivorman. This outdoorsman and survival expert became stranded in various remote locations for a week at a time – all with zero supplies or equipment (except for his one-man camera rig) – and showed viewers how to survive some of the bleakest conditions.

The show wasn’t just great for entertainment – Les Stroud actually followed his own survival advice and made it through some true SHTF scenarios. And you’re about to discover some of his top survival advice.

10 Les Stroud Survival Tips (Part One)

*** Keep in mind this is Part One of a two-part series. So for now, pay attention to these top survival tips and start getting prepared!***

Start A Smoke Signal ASAP

Need to get a smoke signal in a hurry? Grab some damp wood chips and toss them on your fire. This will cause billowing smoke to appear, and help you be seen by rescue teams. Have these on hand at all times in case you need them.

Easy Mosquito Repellant

Don’t want to be bitten by disease-carrying mosquitos? Smear mud all over your face and exposed skin. This will create a barrier between you and the insects. It’ll also cover up your scent, making you less of a tasty treat.

Clothes with a super smokey smell will also help keep the bugs away. Hold them high over your fire to help you get the upper hand.

Multi-Tool Is The Best Tool

Very few survival tools are as versatile and incredible as the multitool. These take up very little space in your pack, and typically have at least 8 different uses (though some of many more) to help you out in an emergency. Grab a couple and keep them on you at all times.

Less Water = Less Food

Short on water? Eat less food. Since digestion requires water to break down foods, you won’t put strain on your digestion by eating lots more than it can handle.

Not to mention, many of us sip on water as we eat, thinking nothing of it. However, this isn’t a great idea (especially in a survival situation). It’s easy to get distracted when we eat, and we might consume more water in the process. Not to mention, your salivary glands naturally work to break down food. By drinking water with food, you’re not allowing them to do their job.

When To Take A Sip

If you can access water easily (i.e: nearby reservoir) go ahead and take a drink every 30 minutes or so. This will help slow your hunger, and flush out contaminants in the body.

Signal For The First 72 Hours

You’re most likely to get rescued in the first 3 days of an emergency. So make sure to make signals during that time to improve your chances of being rescued.

Never Let ‘Em See You Sweat

Don’t allow yourself to sweat when it’s cold outside. This sweat will make you colder, and your body will have to work overtime to keep your warm. Dry off the sweat as much as possible.

Be Smart When Breaking Branches

Breaking branches with your hands can be dangerous. Instead, snap them between two trees. This will help you avoid unnecessary injury.

Cool Boiling Trick

Having trouble boiling water in a container? Put those rocks on the fire, and then add them to the hot water to help it boil.

Know The 5 Ws
Always remember the 5 Ws in a survival situation:
  • Weather (What’s it like in your area? What are the trends?)
  • Wood (How much is available for wood/shelter? Where can you store it safely?)
  • Watch out for Wigglies (especially ones that can bite and/or poison you)
  • Widowmakers (be on the lookout – these dead trees can fall on your campsite)
  • Water (where is it? How are you going to make it drinkable? How much is there? Where else can you find it?)

Is that all the Les Stroud Survival Tips? Heck no. We’ll have another blog out in a couple days with more cool survival tips! Until then, prepare!

Mayorkas in Hot Seat For Allegedly Encouraging Illegals to Vote for Biden

secretary-alejandro-mayorkas-department-homeland-security1

During a recent congressional budget hearing, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas found himself under intense scrutiny by Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) concerning a deeply troubling allegation. The Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project reported the discovery of a flyer, purportedly from Resource Center Matamoros, which brazenly encourages migrants to vote for President Joe Biden, promising, “We need another four years of his term to stay open.” This inflammatory material, allegedly found by independent journalists in Mexico and reported by Muckraker, raises grave concerns about the integrity of our electoral process.

The flyer, still unverified by mainstream media outlets and missing from the Resource Center Matamoros’s official resources, points to a potential scandal of significant proportions. The implications are severe—suggesting a concerted effort to manipulate U.S. elections by influencing the migrant population, a group explicitly ineligible to participate in our voting system.

Rep. Bishop confronted Mayorkas directly: “The Heritage Foundation Oversight Project has released this document that is allegedly a flyer distributed by a non-governmental organization in Mexico called the Resource Center Matamoros … which is said to read, in part, if translated, ‘Reminder to vote for President Biden when you are in the United States. We need another four years of his term to stay open,'” illustrating a critical lapse in border security and immigration enforcement under the current administration.

Mayorkas’s response was both dismissive and inadequate, stating that “individuals who are not citizens of the United States cannot vote in federal elections” and claiming that DHS does not oversee election enrollments but merely enforces border policies. However, this response starkly highlights the core issue—the Biden administration’s lax enforcement and oversight policies, which have allowed millions, including two million undocumented ‘got-aways,’ to potentially exploit loopholes in the electoral registration process.

Secretary Mayorkas and the Biden administration must be held accountable for their role in what appears to be a flagrant disregard for the laws that safeguard both our borders and our ballots. This incident is not an isolated blip but a symptom of a broader, more disturbing trend under Secretary Mayorkas’s DHS: a deliberate softening of immigration policies that seem designed to favor political over practical interests.

It’s imperative for the integrity of our democratic process that thorough investigations are conducted. If migrants are indeed being instructed, implicitly or explicitly, to support a particular political outcome, such actions must be met with the full force of the law. We must demand more than lackluster assurances from our leaders; we need concrete actions and transparent accountability to restore faith in our immigration system and electoral integrity.

Biden’s Blunders: Scripted Leadership in Crisis Times?

arlington-va-usa-may-29-2023

Once again, President Biden has been caught on camera, not trusting his own words during crucial moments. During a recent Oval Office meeting with Iraq’s Prime Minister, while the world reels from a violent missile and drone attack by Iran on Israel, Biden couldn’t step away from his pre-written scripts.

Photographs reveal that Biden, aged 81, resorted to a detailed cheat sheet, which embarrassingly included all-caps stage directions for pausing, allowing for translation. This was during his first public address since the devastating attack on Israel over the weekend. The contrast was stark next to Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia’a Al-Sudani, who spoke freely, without the aid of notes.

Instead of addressing the nation live while missiles were still threatening lives, the White House chose to “call a lid” early in the evening, opting only to release staged photos of Biden in the Situation Room. It was only after the immediate crisis had eased that Biden communicated with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to express U.S. support, and convened a discussion with G7 leaders—again, following the script too cautiously, reportedly urging Netanyahu to limit Israel’s response, seemingly more worried about political optics than decisive leadership.

In public, Biden stated, “The United States is committed to Israel’s security…We are committed to a cease-fire that will bring the hostages home and prevent the conflict from spreading further.” Yet, these words, read from his script, now ring hollow, reflecting a pattern of relying on scripted safety nets even in supposedly spontaneous discussions.

This tendency to lean heavily on pre-written prompts was noted not only in moments of international crisis but also in less formal settings like private fundraisers, causing discomfort among his own supporters, as per reports from Axios.

As crises unfold, the leader of the free world should be expected to address his nation and the world with conviction and authenticity, not hide behind carefully curated words. The frequent appearance of Biden’s cheat sheets raises concerning questions about his ability to lead through unscripted challenges—where real leadership is tested not by the ability to follow a script, but to speak from the heart and adapt with strength.

Migrant Invaders Brazenly Charge at Swimmers in Speedboat

juarez-mexico-12212022-hundreds-migrants-wait

In a blatant affront to American sovereignty, a dozen illegal immigrants executed a dangerous and illegal invasion of our shores, arriving at a California beach via speedboat with reckless disregard for the safety of Americans enjoying their leisure time. One surfer narrowly escaped harm as the vessel tore through the water at high speeds, a clear symbol of the contempt these lawbreakers hold for our laws and our people.

This latest episode in Carlsbad, a mere 30 miles north of San Diego, is a chilling reminder of the organized lawlessness that is being orchestrated across our borders. Once ashore, these illegal entrants scurried toward luxury vehicles, suggesting a level of premeditation and support that borders on an invasion facilitated by criminal networks.

Compounding the audacity of this episode was the abject failure of local law enforcement to respond, leaving law-abiding citizens to fend for themselves. Such incidents underscore a terrifying erosion of law and order, signaling to criminals everywhere that our borders are open for exploitation.

This incident is not an anomaly but a stark representation of a broader crisis fueled by a border policy that might as well hang a welcome sign for criminals and opportunists. The alarming influx of illegal crossings, particularly in the San Diego sector—where nearly 7,000 breaches were reported last week alone—is a direct result of deliberate inaction and misguided policies that invite chaos and endanger American lives.

The economic and social strain this unchecked immigration inflicts on our communities is unsustainable. The closure of local migrant shelters, once hemorrhaging millions of taxpayer dollars monthly, is a testament to the fiscal burden imposed by these continuous waves of illegal entrants. This burden has now shifted to our airports and bus stations, turning them into makeshift shelters and degrading the quality of life for residents and tourists alike.

It is evident that our current administration lacks the will to address this crisis effectively. The projected figures are a dire warning: with over 8 million people potentially on our streets, including two million with criminal intentions, the situation is nothing short of a national emergency.

Congress must act with urgency to secure our borders and overhaul an immigration system that has been exploited far too long. We need robust enforcement of our immigration laws, substantial penalties for those who violate them, and an end to policies that encourage illegal entry into our country. The time for tolerance of this disorder is over. The safety, security, and sovereignty of the United States must be enforced rigorously and without apology. We must protect American citizens and the integrity of our nation.
