6 Ideal Trees For Survival

trees for survival
Do you know the best trees for survival? Whether you’re planning out your survival garden or preparing for a crisis, this is one thing that’s very important to know.
After all, not every tree is created equal. And if you know this (and the pros and cons of each type) you’ll be much more able to thrive in a crisis.
Trees are extremely important; that’s why it’s important to know about these…

6 Ideal Trees For Survival

Apple Trees

Apple trees are not only ideal for survival, but also for everyday living. That’s because this tree’s precious fruit can be eaten, made into cider, and even bartered with for other supplies.

It’s important to know that most types of apples do not pollinate on their own. There must be at least two different varieties near each other – that way, bees are able to cross-pollinate them.

It’s also important to note that not every environment is good for growing apple trees. However, if you do your research and plant accordingly, your tree will likely start bearing fruit in about 2 years’ time. Just make sure to pick an apple variety you enjoy eating!

White Birch Trees

White birch is known for their white, papery bark. Luckily, this bark can be very useful for lighting tinder – even when it’s damp!

Not to mention, white birch contains drinkable sap that doesn’t require purification. This syrupy-sweet liquid contains proteins, amino acids and enzymes that can be a great nutritional source for the body. Not to mention, some say birch trees even contain healing properties, and can help those with cancer.

Honey Locust Trees

When planted close together, honey locust trees can create a protective barrier around your property. These trees are great for home defense, since they’re naturally thorny and can help deter burglars.

Plus, the honey locust tree also produces edible pods containing legume pulp. Native Americans have dried out this pulp and used it as a sweetener.

But that’s not all. Once this tree is established, it becomes drought tolerant, making it great for dry conditions. Plus, its lumber is both durable and rot-resistant, making it excellent wood for shelters.

Oak Trees

Oak trees produce lots of acorns, which are great for us to consume (or to make flour out of). You can also use these acorns as bait in order to lure small game into a snare.

If you’re going to eat an acorn, just make sure to take out the tannic acid (which causes the bitter taste). You can do this by either boiling or leaching the acorn. However, keep in mind those tannins can be useful as an antibacterial.

Finally, oak is a hard wood, making it great for crafting durable survival tools like spears and digging tools.

Cedar Trees

Cedar is great for building furniture, since it’s a soft, stable wood. This means it’s less likely to expand and crack. Thus, it’s also very useful for making a plethora of objects, such as musical instruments and shingles.

Plus, it’s great for cooking food. Ever had cedar plank salmon? Mmm mmm. Delicious.

Not to mention, the bark of the cedar tree can also be made into a tea. Its natural healing properties can help treat symptoms from the flu and the common cold.

Pine Trees

Pine trees grow very fast, which makes them great for growing in a survival garden (as well as using for firewood).

Pine trees also contain a resin which it uses for defense. Once harvested, you can apply this resin to help treat wounds and stop bleeding.

 

One thing is clear – trees can be very helpful for numerous things (including providing shelter and protection from the elements). However, to get the most “bang for your buck,” it’s important to know a bit about the trees in your area.

Do your research and discover what all you can do using the unique trees in your area/bug out location. You’ll likely become much better prepared as a result!

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.
