8 Amazing Survival Uses For WD-40

WD-40

WD-40 is likely in your toolbox, in your garage, or somewhere in your house. You’re not alone, either – millions of people worldwide have this amazing tool stored away in their home.

And why wouldn’t they?

With its ability to help unstick computer keys, lubricate sticky doors, and open up gummed up locks, it’s easy to see why this impressive spray has a rightful spot in every household.

However, it turns out that WD-40 is way more useful than people think. For instance, it’s not just a lubricant. It also displaces water (meaning it moves water away from whatever you spray it on). Hence its name: WD = Water Displacement.

And, since it contains a variety of chemicals which lubricate, prevent corrosion, and more, the amount of ways you can use this spray just became practically endless.

So, before you think you know everything about this product, make sure to learn about these…

8 Amazing Survival Uses For WD-40

Dig More Effectively

If you’re digging a hole for a shelter or a survival garden, it’s going to be a lot easier with WD-40. That’s because, by spraying this all over the blade of your shovel, the WD-40 will lubricate it, helping the dirt slide off with ease. It’s surprising how much time this can save you!

Keep Survival Food Away From Bugs

Here’s a trick – if your only available food storage is a container with an open top, simply spray the bottom and sides of it with WD-40. This will help prevent bugs and vermin from wanting to climb up the container and sneak inside.

Extend The Life Of Your Survival Tools

It’s surprising how many tools can perform more efficiently (and last longer) with a good spray of WD-40. For instance, spraying this on wooden tools will prevent them from splintering, and will help keep water from ruining them. It can also prevent metal objects from rusting, and can lubricate squeaky joints.

Reduce Snow Buildup

If you’ve got a bug out vehicle, do yourself a favor and spray WD-40 on the windows before a big snowstorm. The spray will help displace the water, and will help prevent snow and ice from building up on your windows.

Start A Fire

If you’re needing to warm up your hands or cook survival food, you can do so pretty quickly with the help of WD-40. Just spray a bit on your kindling and, since the chemicals are flammable, they’ll ignite in no time.

Lubricate Your Gun

Turns out WD-40 is a wonder when it comes to gun cleaning. And, although you shouldn’t rely on it solely (you’ll want to consistently use a good gun oil and cleaner) , it’s a great tool to take advantage of when SHTF. Spray the WD-40 on the inside and outside of your firearm to clean, protect, and lubricate it in-between uses.

Drive The Bugs Away

This can be exceptionally helpful if you’re bugging in during an emergency. Spray WD-40 around areas that wasps tend to congregate. The chemicals inside will help drive them away, and will help prevent the insects from building their nest there.

Chop Down A Tree

Anyone who’s been chopping down a tree can tell you how hard it is. Thankfully, you can exert less effort and still get the job done by spraying WD-40 on the blade. This lubrication will help stop the knife/axe/hatchet from getting stuck in the tree, thereby speeding up the process.

**BONUS**

We wrote a survival article about WD-40 a couple years ago, but wanted to update it with additional uses (hence the reason for writing this one). Take a look at the original for more ideas on how you can use this survival tool in emergencies.

**EXTRA BONUS**

WD-40 has so many survival uses that two articles just aren’t going to cover them all. Watch the video below to discover even more ways to use this cool product!

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.
