12 Reasons To Add Peanut Butter To Your Go-Bag

peanut butter

Few preppers (or non-preppers, even) don’t understand how truly amazing peanut butter is. This incredible invention is full of protein, lasts for years thanks to its natural oil, and is very nutritious. Not to mention, it tastes delicious by itself, on a banana, or in a sandwich (to name just a few).

I’ll bet you didn’t know just how good for you P.B. can be, though. According to CNN:

Peanut butter is rich in heart-healthy fats and is a good source of protein, which can be helpful for vegetarians looking to include more protein in their diets. A 2-tablespoon serving of peanut butter contains up to 8 grams of protein and 2 to 3 grams of fiber. The nutty spread also offers vitamins and minerals including the B vitamin niacin, iron, potassium and vitamin E.

But what may be news to you is just how versatile peanut butter is. After all, its flavor, nutrition, and shelf-life aren’t the only thing going for it. It turns out there are other reasons you’ll want to to use a jar of this stuff once SHTF!

It’s imperative to prepare for anything and everything that may be coming up. That’s why you’ll love learning about these…

12 Reasons To Add Peanut Butter To Your Go-Bag

Keep in mind that you’ll want to use smooth and creamy peanut butter for most of these ideas. However, if crunchy peanut butter is all you have, that’ll do in a pinch.

1 – Get The Gum Out

Kids + gum = bad combination. They get it stuck in their hair, or in the carpet, or who knows where else. Luckily, you have the power of peanut butter by your side. Since the peanut butter has natural oils in it, these will gently lift the gum off the surface.

Lightly spread the peanut butter over and around the gum, and let it sit for a few minutes. Then gently wipe everything away with a cloth.

2 – Helps With Hunting
3 – Substitute For Butter

Butter is a staple in most any kind of cooking. As such, you might find out you run out rather quickly! If this happens, just substitute it for smooth peanut butter. It’ll work just as well, and will give your food a tasty, nutty taste.

4 – Lock In Moisture

Let’s be honest. Your hair is going to get gross once a major emergency hits. And although this is no beauty pageant, you’ll want to feel fresh and clean as possible when the big one hits. After all, when you feel like you look decent, this boosts your morale and you’re more likely to have a fresh outlook on things.

That being said, you can massage peanut butter into your hair to help moisturize it. This works great if your hair is dry and brittle from the harsh conditions. Wash the peanut butter thoroughly, and then use shampoo immediately afterward. It’ll surprise you how shiny your hair will get!

5 – Get The Kids To Take Vitamins/Meds

Vitamins are ultra important when SHTF. However, picky children (and even pets, if you bring them along) can make it a real pain to give them their daily dose of vitamins or medications when they’re sick. Conceal the pill in a spoonful of peanut butter, and it’ll hide the taste and smell – they won’t know the difference!

6 – Give Yourself A Shave

Like #4, when you look good you feel good. And most every man could use a good shave to boost his morale and keep pressing on. Which is why peanut butter is so important – if you don’t have shaving cream (or you run out) you can always substitute smooth peanut butter to shave the scruff away. The oils in the P.B. will work to moisturize your face, and will help prevent razor burn and cuts.

7 – Use It For Hunting

Mice may like going after cheese in the cartoons, but in real life they actually don’t love the stuff. What mice do go crazy for, though, is peanut butter. place a spoonful at the end of a mouse trap and let it lure the rodent out from hiding. You can also use peanut butter to help you in your hunting by placing it in your traps and snares to help attract animals.

Pro Tip: Make a DIY birdfeeder by spreading peanut butter over a large pine cone, and sprinkling bird seed over it. Then hang the cones by a string or piece of paracord on a nearby tree. The birds will think they’re coming for a delicious snack, but little do they know they’ll be the snack.

8 – Catch The Spiders

When SHTF, you’re going to want to sleep without spiders, roaches and other bugs crawling all over you. Make a homemade bug trap by removing the lid off the peanut butter jar, and spreading the last bit of peanut butter onto the lid. Lay it where the bugs are, and dream sweet dreams. You’ll likely wake up in the morning with a lid full of bugs that are stuck to the peanut butter.

9 – Kill The Ants

Rather than having to buy some gross chemical spray to keep ants away, simply use peanut butter. Combine two teaspoons of it with 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and 1 teaspoon borax. Spread the mixture wherever ants are coming into your home – just keep your pets away from it.

10 – Replace WD-40

Who carries a can of WD-40 around when SHTF? Well, not you – especially not since smooth peanut butter works just as well! Apply the peanut butter to a squeaky hinge or a creaky drawer, and the natural oils will help cease them from making noise.

11 – Remove The Glue

If you’re busy with a DIY project, it’s likely you’ll get glue all over your hands. Rather than scrubbing them with soap, simply apply peanut butter to your hands and let it sit for a few minutes. The oils will loosen the glue, and make it easy to remove.

12 – Clean Your Windshield

If you plan on having a bug out vehicle when SHTF, you’ll love this tip. You can use peanut butter to clean off stubborn dirt, debris, and bug carcasses off your windshield! Rub the P.B. on the stuck-on bits, and let it rest for about 10 minutes. Then spray down the windshield, or use a wet washcloth to remove it. It’ll be all clear and ready for your next adventure.

Get Tons Of P.B.

Want to buy peanut butter in bulk to prepare for a crisis? We highly recommend Amazon, as well as warehouse stores like Costco. Amazon will help you price compare, while Costco will give you a great deal on HUGE containers of peanut butter.

Otherwise places like Dollar Tree are great for peanut butter, because you know you’ll always be getting your favorite peanut butter brands for cheap.

How To Grow Your Own

You may not know this, but growing peanuts is pretty easy. If you have enough room, we included a video showing you how to grow your own peanuts. Check it out:




( – Joe Biden has decided not to run for reelection.

On Sunday afternoon, Biden declared his plan and promised to provide further details shortly.

“It has been the greatest honor of my life to serve as your President,” Biden’s statement read. “And while it has been my intention to seek reelection, I believe it is in the best interest of my party and the country for me to stand down and to focus solely on fulfilling my duties as President for the remainder of my term.”

Although Vice President Kamala Harris was expressly endorsed as his successor, he congratulated her in his statement for “being an extraordinary partner in all this work.”

But Biden later gave “my full support and endorsement for Kamala to be the nominee of our party this year” in a statement uploaded on X.

Then, in a powerful message to Democrats, Biden urged them to unite and defeat Trump, emphasizing the importance of collective action in the upcoming election.

Do you believe VP Kamala Harris will be the 2024 Democratic presidential nominee?

9 Secret Service Failures that Led to Trump Almost Being Assassinated

9 Secret Service Failures that Led to Trump Almost Being Assassinated

( – This past Saturday, during a campaign rally in Butler, Pennsylvania, former President Donald Trump came dangerously close to being assassinated in what is believed to be the biggest Secret Service blunder in forty years.

The fact remains that the organization tasked with defending Trump was unable to prevent the gunman, 20-year-old Thomas Matthew Crooks, from setting up shop less than 500 feet away, killing Corey Comperatore, a 50-year-old volunteer fire chief, and hitting President Trump in the ear.

Numerous investigations are in progress, but there have been few replies yet. Kimberly Cheatle, the director of the Secret Service, is scheduled to testify before the House Oversight Committee on Monday.

The following nine significant security lapses by the Secret Service that we are now aware of require attention:

1. There was an apparent security concern from the rooftop from where Crooks fired shots at Trump. According to NBC News, the Secret Service had recognized the rooftop as a possible point of vulnerability in the days leading up to the rally.

Why was the building given to local law enforcement and not included in the Secret Service’s inside perimeter? Why wasn’t the building’s perimeter secured? How did rally participants see Crooks ascending to the rooftop and positioning himself before the police could stop him?

When did the Secret Service’s counter-sniper teams learn about him, and why weren’t any of them designated to keep an eye on the rooftop?

2. The Secret Service allowed local police enforcement to be housed inside the structure instead of outside on the roof. According to Cheatle, the choice was to house local law enforcement inside the structure instead of on top of it.

She asserted that the roof’s “slope” was a “safety factor” in the decision. Dan Bongino, a podcast presenter and former Secret Service agent, has dubbed that “bullsh-t.”

In his July 18, 2024, podcast episode, Bongino stated that he had heard from sources that local police snipers were placed inside because they were pitted against counter-snipers and thought they could accomplish the task from the building’s second story.

This raises the question: Why weren’t counter-snipers on the rooftop watching for would-be snipers?

3. The building’s exterior was not secure, which gave Crooks access to the rooftop. Who was guarding the building from the outside or the rooftop from below, even if local police snipers were not stationed on the rooftop?

Did local law enforcement officers have a watch duty at the building? The Washington Post stated that although the agency had planned ahead, local police had informed the Secret Service before Saturday that they did not have the means to place a patrol car and officer outside the facility.

Why didn’t the Secret Service devise a backup strategy? How did Crooks manage to go to the top unhindered and get a direct line of sight with Trump?

4. About three hours before Trump spoke, at around 3 p.m., local law police noticed Crooks near a magnetometer with a range finder. After that, they lost sight of him. Why hadn’t law enforcement or the Secret Service questioned or followed him earlier?

CNN reports that Crooks caused a stir when he passed past magnetometers erected to check participants for the presence of a range finder. This device resembles a tiny pair of binoculars and is frequently used by the military or hunters to locate targets.

According to Bongino, there is disagreement over whether he used magnetometers in real life. Nevertheless, he was supposedly seen close to them.

The questions are: Who saw Crooks using the range finder, and who was informed of the sighting? Why wasn’t he followed up with or questioned at that point?

5. Crooks was not stopped or questioned even though local law enforcement officers reportedly saw him about an hour before Trump was scheduled to speak.

They saw him hanging outside the building, scoping the rooftop, returning with a backpack, and pulling out a range finder. They reported him to a command center.

It is unclear to whom Crooks was reported, whether the Secret Service knew about him then, and why he was not apprehended or questioned in light of his suspicious activity.

How was he permitted to ascend onto the rooftop without being stopped if he was under the notice of the Secret Service or local law enforcement?

6. About 20 minutes before Trump entered the stage, at 5:52 p.m., the Secret Service allegedly saw Crooks on the rooftop. Despite this, the agency did not prevent Trump from taking the platform.

At 5:52 p.m., ABC News reported he was spotted on the rooftop by Secret Service snipers. Why was Trump permitted to speak on stage even though?

When a local police officer observed Crooks on the rooftop sometime around 6:02 p.m., it was said that he pointed his gun at him, which caused him to tumble back down and hurt himself.

Were the Secret Service snipers present when this occurred, and if so, why were they inactive at that time?

7. The Secret Service snipers did nothing before Crooks fired at Trump, even though he had drawn his gun and positioned himself to shoot him.

Why wasn’t he neutralized before he could shoot Trump, even after the Secret Service recognized him as a threat and after he took out a gun and took up position?

Why was there an 11-second delay between Crooks’ initial shot at Trump and the Secret Service snipers’ fatal shot, assuming they had seen him at 5:52 p.m.?

8. Trump arrived on stage at 6:02 p.m., and for ten minutes, no action was taken to remove him from the platform until Crooks was able to open fire on him at 6:12 p.m.

Why wasn’t Trump removed from the stage, even if Secret Service snipers saw Crooks on the rooftop and were unsure of what to do?

Who decided not to try to remove him, and was there an attempt to do so?

9. No drone monitoring was conducted during the event, which would have allowed law police to catch Crooks scaling the rooftop earlier.

Despite the Secret Service’s capacity to request drone monitoring, Bongino claims no drone was used to record the event.

Was that capability requested by the Secret Service? If yes, who disputed it and to what extent?

On Monday, Cheatle—who has acknowledged that she has no plans to retire despite receiving calls for her resignation—will have many questions to respond to.

Should the Secret Service Director be immediately fired?

( – Over the past eight years, leftists who have called for violence against President Trump and his followers have become all too familiar to us.

Now that an attempt on Trump’s life was foiled at his Pennsylvania rally the previous weekend, we must give these unlawful threats against the former president and his allies more careful thought.

A well-known far-left live streamer named Destiny—a man with a female name—went on a hateful rampage against the late Trump supporter Corey Comperatore during the past week after Comperatore was struck by a bullet that was accidentally fired at the president.

It didn’t take long for blue-haired lefties like Destiny to start joyfully celebrating the death of a Trump fan while lamenting the fact that the assassin didn’t manage to kill the former president.

His words promoting violence led to his (supposedly) demonetization on X, and he was also temporarily suspended from, a well-known streaming service, for making the same heinous statements.

Many conservatives supported Destiny’s right to make such remarks as an example of the First Amendment.

But Destiny changed his tone during the RNC, going from endorsing violence to openly endorsing political assassinations.


After facing a series of personal challenges, including a highly publicized divorce, Destiny suffered a dramatic meltdown.

During an impromptu interview with The Gateway Pundit journalist Elijah Schaffer during the RNC in Milwaukee, WI, the host of The Young Turks, Ana Kasparian, went out of her way to denounce these remarks even though some conservatives were quick to accuse all liberals of thinking the same way.

It’s alarming to see someone with Destiny’s level of popularity advocating for political violence. However, it’s heartening to see progressive colleagues like Ana Kasparian criticize him for his deplorable remarks and serve as a reminder that, occasionally, people have public breakdowns.

Should far-left liberals promoting violence, like Destiny, be immediately de-platformed and demonetized?
