5 Amazing Survival Uses For Christmas Items

The truth is most preppers haven’t considered the various survival uses for Christmas items. That’s because they’re too busy celebrating (and rightly so). However, when the holidays are over most people will toss out their Christmas decorations. And they’ll be ultimately forfeiting a lot of useful stuff that can aid them in a survival situation.

Thankfully, you don’t have to be one of those people. You can enjoy the holiday season AND be smart enough to save that Christmas gear and add it to your stockpile. All you have to do is simply know these…

5 Amazing Survival Uses For Christmas Items

Bones From The “Christmas Beast”

Whether you had ham, turkey, roast or other form of meat for the holidays, the fact is you can utilize the leftover bones from these animals to heal your body.

That’s because these bones are basically nutrient powerhouses. And when you turn them into broth, you can experience:

  • A boost in immune system support
  • Less cellulite
  • Improved joint health
  • Reduced allergies
  • Healing for leaky gut
  • Reduced food intolerances

Think about it. Our ancestors were able to utilize every part of the animals they killed by simmering these bones in a pot for days at a time. This process causes the bones and ligaments to release their healing compounds, such as glutamine, glycine, collagen and proline. This creates a highly nutritious meal that works to heal you from the inside out.

Whether you use the Christmas beast or kill an animal in a survival situation, be sure to turn these bones into a broth for maximum health benefits!

Pine Boughs

Many people use pine trees (and pine boughs) for their holiday decor. Luckily, these are good for a lot more than just making your home feel Christmassy.

Here’s a few ways to get the most out of those leftover pine boughs:

  • Add them to the roof of your survival shelter to help trap heat and keep the elements out.
  • Boughs that have flaking bark and dry needs are perfect for using as kindling when starting a fire.
  • Use them to hide a snare from animals… until it’s too late.
  • Fresh boughs with sap can help cover your scent and prevent animals from knowing you’re around.
Stockings

The great thing about stockings is they can do a lot more than just hold your Christmas loot. These survival tools are much more durable than ordinary socks, and therefore provide more warmth (and are longer lasting).

In a crisis you can combine stockings with duct tape, paracord and cardboard to make your own boots. You can also use these long, durable socks to carry survival gear that won’t fit in your pack.

Pinecones

Pinecones are an incredibly common Christmas decoration that you’ll see during the holidays. However, great news – these natural items are also great for survival!

Good news is we’ve already written about a few different ways you can use this handy item for survival. Check out our article here to learn more.

Christmas Lights

Believe it or not, you can actually use leftover Christmas lights in your survival planning!

Here’s a few ingenious ways to make them work for you:

  • Wrap them through your belt loops to make an impromptu belt.
  • Light your way in the dark.
  • Fashion a splint.
  • Tie lumber together
  • Remove the bulbs and then utilize them for many of the same uses as rope or paracord.

Judge Threatens to Arrest Trump for Going to His Son’s Graduation

new-york-ny-july-20-2022

Donald Trump, often maligned by his critics, has demonstrated one undeniable truth throughout his public life: he is a devoted and exceptional father. Observing him with his children—Don Jr., Ivanka, Eric, Tiffany, and Barron—reveals a man who is not only proud but profoundly nurturing. This connection with his children, built on respect and genuine affection, is something that any parent can recognize as authentic and admirable.

Amidst his many battles, the commitment Trump shows to his family life remains unshakeable, even as he faces an unprecedented and, many would argue, highly politicized trial. It’s utterly disheartening to see how low his opponents are willing to stoop in their pursuit to tarnish his image—so much so, that they would even suggest jailing him should he decide to attend his youngest son Barron’s graduation. This insinuation by Justice Juan Merchan is not only absurd but strikes at the heart of basic human decency.

Consider the sheer joy and pride a parent feels witnessing their child achieve a milestone like graduation. Barron, having grown up under the intense scrutiny of his father’s high-profile career, deserves to celebrate his graduation day with both his parents by his side, without the shadow of political vendettas darkening this important family moment.

The trumped up case against Trump, centered around alleged hush money related to an encounter with Stormy Daniels, is based on alleged actions that took place long before he entered the political arena. If we examine this scenario critically, it’s clear that this is a common enough practice among the elite to protect personal and family privacy. Yet, it’s portrayed as a sinister plot solely because Trump is the individual involved. This represents a glaring double standard, especially when compared to how similar situations have been handled with other public figures.

Let’s not forget, Bill Clinton, while President, engaged in far more directly compromising behavior, yet faced no criminal trial. His ability to attend his daughter Chelsea’s graduation and celebrate this occasion publicly was never questioned or jeopardized by his legal entanglements or the moral judgments of others.

It’s a stark illustration of the hypocrisy and bias that drives the actions of those who oppose Trump at every turn. This trial, and the drama surrounding his ability to participate in his son’s graduation, underscores a broader attempt to undermine him in the most personal and painful ways.

Should the situation arise where Trump is barred from attending Barron’s graduation, he should undoubtedly prioritize his paternal duties. Such an act would likely resonate with many Americans who value family and parental rights, potentially rallying more support for Trump in any future endeavors, including elections.

In the end, Trump’s enduring commitment to his family, despite the relentless attacks against him, not only humanizes him but also exemplifies his resilience and dedication. It’s essential to recognize and commend his role as a father amidst the tumult of political strife.

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.
