Astounding Survival Use For Mud You’ve Never Thought Of

survival use for mud

When most preppers think of a survival use for mud, it’s typically to build a house. This is a fantastic use of this resource. After all, mud is pliable when wet, making it easy to spread around and cover the surface area of the project. However, when it dries, it forms a thick, hard substance that’s difficult to knock down in the wind.

Surprisingly enough, this is not the most incredible survival use for mud (in my opinion). Sure, it’s a great resource for shelter. But the mixture of dirt and water can do so much more than just helping you have shelter.

So what is this miraculous survival use for mud, anyway? I can tell you one thing – it’s WAY more cutting-edge than anything you’ve probably ever thought of. In fact, it’s so progressive it can even change the way preppers survive in TEOTWAWKI.

Want to know what it is? Think you’ve figured it out? Well, either way, I’m going to introduce you to this…

Astounding Survival Use For Mud You’ve Never Thought Of

One of the biggest worries preppers have about an SHTF event is not being able to use their technological devices. Smartphones, tablets, and survival radios, and more can be a godsend in an emergency. That’s because the user can easily access local news, use GPS, text/call for help, receive weather alerts, and more with these handy gadgets.

However, the huge downside to these devices is that they burn up battery fairly quickly. And if you find yourself with a dead device, this could lead to panic, frustration, and a LOT more unknowns than before.

However, unbeknownst to most preppers, mud can actually be used to generate electricity to power these devices! This is by far the most incredible survival use for mud ever!

Now keep in mind this process probably won’t generate the same amount of voltage as, say, a AAA battery. You’ll also have to keep in mind that, because of this, charging devices will take a lot longer than just plugging them into an outlet. But hey, if it has the ability to save your device (as well as your life) why wouldn’t you try it?

You’re going to get a bit dirty while attempting this task. However, if one thing’s for certain, it’s this. Survival situations demand you get comfortable with getting a little dirty in order to survive.

So let’s start by asking the question on everyone’s minds…

How Does Generating Electricity From Mud Actually Work?

The point of this entire process is to create what’s known as a Microbial Fuel Cell. This will produce the electricity you need to power your devices.

Here’s some helpful information (as well as an informative graphic) from Survivopedia on how this Microbial Fuel Cell works:

Here’s what you need to achieve to produce more electricity:

  • Find some way to get existing bacteria to boost their metabolism 200 – 300 times the current rate.

  • Get the bacteria to multiply faster.

  • To generate electricity, the bacteria actually form networks of conductive “bridges” or “wires” in the growing medium. At this time, it is not known if the bacteria themselves are producing the most optimal pattern for conducting electricity from one place to another. Changing the pattern may improve efficiency and it may also boost the amount of current produced by the generator.

  • Find a way to make the cells smaller: see if you can use a more liquefied mud cell, and then irrigate it with a steady flow of nutrient rich water. Provide some kind of growing film for the bacteria so they aren’t washed away each time the mud cell is bathed in water. Even though nanotechnologies may be outside of your available list of materials, they may one day be useful for making an optimized structure for the bacteria to live in and generate electricity across. This leads to a smaller footprint for each cell, as well as higher levels of efficiency.

  • Get equipment that will help you find out the answers to several questions: a microscope and access to white papers on nanotechnology, conductive material molecular structures, and other materials may be of use to you.

The Necessary Steps To Building A Microbial Fuel Cell

Here’s some instructions on how to build a Microbial Fuel Cell, courtesy of Survivopedia:

To make a microbial fuel cell, start off by gathering the right kind of mud. Dig around in the bottom of a pond that has been around for a few years, and pull up some of the black mud at the bottom. This mud will be rich in the kind of bacteria that can be used to generate electricity.

Next, you will need some salt, water, agar, and PVC pipe. Mix the salt, water, and agar together, and then fill the pipe with them. Once the agar cools, it should be hard enough so that it will not spill out of the tube.

The agar acts as a repository for salt, which restores the ionic balance as electricity is drawn from the cell. You can also try cardboard dipped in salt water or other methods for making the salt bridge.

The microbial fuel cell requires two chambers that are connected by the agar filled PVC pipe. Make sure the seals connecting the chambers are waterproof, and that you can easily replace the salt bridge, so that you can refill or make changes to the ingredients in the other chambers as needed.

After you connect the containers with the salt bridge, fill one container part of the way with mud and insert an electrode. Since the electrode will need a fairly wide surface area, make one from regular wire, and then attach an aluminum mesh to it. Finish filling up the container.

Your next step will be to fill the remaining chamber with distilled water and salt. As with the first chamber, install an electrode and some wire.

You can also insert some air tubing that will be used to run an air pump that will aerate the solution in the water chamber.

If you want to increase the amount of air going into the chamber and ensure more stays in the water, try using an aquarium air stone. If you do not aerate the water in the second chamber, it will produce hydrogen gas.

Depending on the activity levels of the bacteria, you may notice a small amount of voltage immediately. It may still take days, or even weeks for the bacteria to rebuild their transport structure and produce more electricity.

Now if you’re a visual learner (like me) you’ll appreciate this video of how to construct a Microbial Fuel Cell:

Survival situations can be scary enough as is. However, throw a few dead smartphones and radios into the mix and it can start to feel 10 times worse.

But, by using this exceptional survival use for mud, preppers can start powering their devices up again. And this can boost hope, morale, and information sharing like never before.

Remember – you must prepare in advance if you expect to survive when SHTF. As I always say, Prepare Now, Survive Later!

Hunter Biden Caught RED HANDED Lying Under Oath

washington-dc-usa-02282024-hunter-biden

House Republicans have detonated a political bombshell, exposing the brazen corruption and arrogance of the Biden family. They have unveiled indisputable evidence proving that Hunter Biden lied under oath multiple times during his congressional deposition earlier this year. This scandal epitomizes the Biden Administration’s systemic corruption and disregard for the rule of law.

The House Ways & Means Committee convened a crucial session on Wednesday to discuss documents protected under IRS code 6103, a section of the tax code designed to keep sensitive information confidential. The committee’s decision to release this material, despite the severe legal ramifications, underscores the gravity and urgency of the situation.

“Hunter Biden has once again demonstrated his belief that there are two systems of justice in this country – one for his privileged family and one for everyone else,” House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith thundered to Fox News Digital. “Not only did Hunter Biden brazenly refuse to comply with his initial subpoena until threatened with criminal contempt, but he also had the audacity to lie before Congress. This investigation and the documents released today are not about a personal vendetta against Hunter Biden; they are about ensuring the equal application of the law in a system that his family seems to believe they are above.”

Smith revealed that the documents show Hunter Biden lied at least three times during his deposition. “Lying during sworn testimony is a felony offense that the Department of Justice has prosecuted numerous individuals for in recent years, and the American people demand the same accountability for the son of the President of the United States,” Smith declared. “Hunter Biden’s lies under oath and obstruction of a congressional investigation into his family’s blatant corruption cast a shadow over his entire testimony. The newly released evidence confirms, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the only witnesses who can be trusted to tell the truth in this investigation are the IRS whistleblowers.”

The committee asserts that Hunter Biden mischaracterized his role at his firm, Rosemont Seneca, and actually controlled bank accounts he denied having under oath. Emails between Hunter Biden and his former associate Devon Archer show he helped a man named Miguel Aleman with visa documents, directly contradicting his testimony. Furthermore, WhatsApp records reveal that Hunter Biden only spoke with one Zhao — Henry Zhao of Chinese energy firm CEFC — debunking his claim of a mistaken identity due to intoxication.

In one explosive WhatsApp message, Hunter Biden blatantly leveraged his father’s position, telling a Chinese business associate from CEFC that he and his father would ensure “you will regret not following my direction.” Hunter Biden demanded a $10 million wire for his joint venture with CEFC, SinoHawk Holdings.

“I am sitting here with my father, and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled,” Hunter Biden told Henry Zhao, the director of Chinese asset management firm Harvest Fund Management. “And, Z, if I get a call or text from anyone involved in this other than you, Zhang, or the chairman, I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge, you will regret not following my direction.” Zhao responded, “CEFC is willing to cooperate with the family.”

Hunter Biden has been charged in two separate jurisdictions stemming from Special Counsel David Weiss’ years-long investigation into him. He pleaded not guilty to federal gun charges in U.S. District Court for Delaware and federal tax charges in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. The charges include making false statements during the purchase of a firearm, related to information required to be kept by a licensed firearm dealer, and possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance.

IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler approached Congress, alleging that prosecutorial decisions in the federal investigation into the president’s son were influenced by politics. They claimed Weiss allowed the statute of limitations to expire for tax charges against Hunter Biden from 2014 and 2015 in D.C., and Hunter Biden should have been charged with tax evasion for 2014 and for filing false tax returns for 2018 and 2019, particularly concerning income from Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings. Fox News Digital reported in December 2020 that Hunter Biden failed to report “approximately $400,000” in income from his position on Burisma’s board in 2014.

The American public is fed up with a system rigged in favor of the powerful and well-connected. This is a direct assault on the integrity of our justice system. The time for accountability is now. Hunter Biden and his family’s blatant disregard for the law cannot be tolerated any longer. The American people demand justice.

Biden’s Reckless Election Stunt: Draining Strategic Reserves to Lower Gas Prices

male-worker-inspection-record-drum-oil

In a desperate and ill-advised move, the Biden administration announced on Tuesday that it is releasing 1 million barrels of gasoline from a Northeast reserve established after Superstorm Sandy, ostensibly to lower prices at the pump this summer. This blatant attempt to manipulate gas prices ahead of the election underscores the administration’s willingness to jeopardize national security for political gain.

The gasoline will be sold from storage sites in New Jersey and Maine in increments of 100,000 barrels, creating a competitive bidding process to ensure it reaches local retailers ahead of the July 4 holiday. The Energy Department claims this will help “lower costs for American families and consumers,” but the real intention is clear: to curry favor with voters by artificially lowering gas prices.

The release follows a congressional mandate to sell off the 10-year-old Northeast reserve and close it. This reserve, established under President Obama, has never been used and costs about $19 million a year to maintain. Its sale, which provides only minimal relief during a severe shortage, highlights the administration’s short-sightedness and disregard for strategic planning.

Gasoline prices average about $3.60 per gallon nationwide, up 6 cents from a year ago, according to AAA. Tapping into the gasoline reserves is one of the few actions a president can take to control inflation, a major election year liability for the party in power.

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm stated that the Biden administration is “laser-focused on lowering prices at the pump for American families.” However, this short-term solution ignores the primary purpose of strategic reserves: to provide emergency relief in times of severe national crises, not to manipulate market prices for political benefit.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre touted this release as part of Biden’s efforts to lower gas and energy costs, including historic releases from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) and investments in clean energy. Yet, Biden’s previous decision to drain the SPR in 2022, following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, already pushed the stockpile to perilously low levels not seen since the 1980s. This reckless depletion of a critical national security asset for short-term political gain drew sharp criticism from Republicans.

Despite attempts to refill the SPR, it still stands at over 367 million barrels, significantly lower than pre-Russia-Ukraine war levels. This makes the U.S. vulnerable in the event of a true energy emergency, as the SPR is intended to be the nation’s emergency oil supply, not a tool for electioneering.

The release of the 42-million-gallon Northeast reserve, which must be transferred or delivered by June 30, is a misguided strategy that offers minimal impact on gasoline prices nationally. As analyst Patrick De Haan from GasBuddy points out, the reserve amounts to just 2.7 hours of total U.S. gasoline consumption, providing negligible relief.

This ill-conceived plan not only undermines the strategic purpose of the reserve but also sets a dangerous precedent of using emergency resources for political maneuvering. Biden’s actions highlight a disturbing trend of prioritizing political optics over national security and long-term stability.

Biden Authorized “Deadly Force” In Mar-a-Lago Raid

bedminster-nj-august-14-2022-demonstrators

In an alarming display of federal overreach and political maneuvering, it has been revealed that Joe Biden’s administration was prepared to have his main political rival, Donald Trump, and his family killed as part of a dramatic publicity stunt.

On Tuesday, Judge Aileen Cannon unsealed a series of motions related to Jack Smith’s controversial classified documents case against Trump. Among the shocking revelations was the fact that Biden’s FBI authorized the use of deadly force during their raid on Mar-a-Lago in August 2022.

This brazen action by armed FBI agents, ready to confront Trump, demonstrates the extreme lengths to which Biden’s administration is willing to go. The filing stated: “Should FPOTUS [Trump] arrive at MAL [Mar-a-Lago], FBI MM EM and OSCs will be prepared to engage with FPOTUS and USSS Security Team.” Furthermore, it added, “Should USSS provide resistance or interfere with FBI timeline or accesses, FBI MM EM will engage with [redacted] and [redacted] will engage with USSS POC’s per existing liaison relationships.”

A chilling screenshot of the deadly force instructions outlined the conditions under which DOJ law enforcement officers could use deadly force: only when necessary, when the officer has a reasonable belief that the subject poses an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury.

This unprecedented move comes after Biden paved the way for his Justice Department to arrest his political opponent by retroactively revoking Trump’s executive privilege. This revocation facilitated the subpoenaing of Trump, which in turn allowed the Justice Department to charge him with federal crimes.

Following the subpoena, federal agents arrived at Mar-a-Lago, retrieving documents and instructing the former president to add an extra lock to his storage locker. However, two months later, the FBI conducted a full-scale raid on Mar-a-Lago, ransacking Trump’s belongings without allowing his lawyers to be present.

The situation escalated when, in November 2022, Jack Smith was appointed special counsel to investigate the documents at Trump’s Florida residence. By June 2023, Trump faced an indictment on 37 counts related to Smith’s classified documents case, including charges of willful retention, conspiracy to obstruct justice, and making false statements.

This entire episode underscores the alarming extent of Biden’s politicization of the Justice Department and the dangerous precedent it sets for using federal power to target political opponents.
