6 Reasons Why Coca-Cola Is Great For Survival

Coca-Cola

Coca-Cola is far and away one of the most popular soda brands – and has been so since its creation. In fact, it’s the most top-selling soft drink in history. The bubbling, sweet taste of this refreshing beverage is classic, and is well-known to most people around the world.

However, what most preppers don’t realize is that they can actually use this popular soft drink effectively in a survival situation. And it’s good for a WHOLE lot more than just for drinking (although it’s great for that, too).

Once you read this article, you’re going to want to start adding Coca-Cola to your bug out bag ASAP!

6 Reasons Why Coca-Cola Is Great For Survival

Although Coca-Cola has lots of different types (Coke Zero, Cherry Coke, Diet Coke, etc.) you’ll want to stay on the safe side and plan on using the classic Coca-Cola for each of these uses.

1 – DIY Defroster

One of Coke’s main ingredients is phosphoric acid – this is an extremely acidic substance (even more acidic than vinegar and lemon juice). As such, you can use it to your advantage in a survival situation.

Phosphoric acid naturally cuts through ice that’s been built-up (say, on a car windshield or on sidewalks), and so you can simply pour the Coke straight onto the ice to get it melting faster. Once the soda has been resting on the ice for about half a minute, simply wipe it off with a clean rag.

2 – Remove The Rust

Rust is just a pain in the butt – both in regular life and in an SHTF situation. Whether it’s on your bug out vehicle, on your survival knife, or on your favorite tools, it’s just plain annoying (not to mention corrosive and  incredibly damaging).

Luckily, you can clear the rust away with Coca-Cola – and it’s all thanks to the soft drink’s powerful phosphoric acid. If the item has just a little rust, you can simply pour the Coke onto the rust spots, and then wipe if off about a minute later. However, for heavy rust, you’ll do better soaking the area in a container of Coke (you may need to stir the item frequently to ensure full coverage).

And, once you’re done, you can save the soda in an airtight container and use it again for the same purpose later on. Brilliant.

3 – Take Out Blood Stains

SHTF situations bring out the worst in people. And, if you’re defending yourself from an attacker, you might end up with blood on your clothes that you need to rinse out.

As soon as possible, you’ll want to remove the clothing that has stains on it, and pour Coke directly onto the blood. Make sure to do this while the blood is still fresh, and before it sets into the fabric.

This is quite effective – so effective, in fact, that paramedics have a history of using Coca-Cola to rinse blood off streets and sidewalks after a murder.

4 – DIY Topical Pain Reliever

Stings from bees, mosquitos, and jellyfish can hurt like hell. Luckily, the contents inside of a Coca-Cola can will help reduce the pain. Pour a bit of the soft drink onto the area, and then dab at it lately to soak up the excess. Doing this will help ease the discomfort.

5 – Remove Stubborn Oil

If oil sticks stubbornly to surfaces, it can mean trouble in a survival situation. That’s because the oil can cause you to slip and fall if it’s stuck to the ground. Plus, if the oil transfers to other survival tools, it can make them virtually useless almost instantly.

Coca-Cola is a powerful cleaning agent for cleaning up oil spills. So much so, in fact, that some people even pour Coke under the hood of their car to clean out their engine.

To take off the oil, simply pour Coke directly onto the oil and then wipe it up with towels. Or, if the oil is on an electrical device, turn the device off, pour the Coke onto a towel, and then dab at the oil spots from there with the Coke-soaked towel. Take care not to drip the liquid onto any sensitive areas.

6 – DIY Pesticide

In India, many farmers have taken to using Coca-Cola as a DIY pesticide and pest control. That’s because the soft drink’s incredibly high amount of sugar can make it exceptionally effective in getting rid of pests. Of course, the Coca-Cola company has been denying that their product works as a pesticide for years (I’ll let you be the judge of that). However, you might as well try this technique in your survival garden and see for yourself!

**BONUS: Coke Can Uses**

We’ve been talking so much about all the uses for the Coca-Cola liquid, that we haven’t even began talking about all the ways you can use the can in an SHTF situation! Watch this informational video to learn all about how to use that Coke can in an emergency.

**BONUS: Coke Bottle Uses**

Did you buy Coke bottles instead of Coke cans? Or, did you find some glass bottles along the road/trail while you were bugging out? Lucky you – as it turns out, these are much more efficient for boiling water than plastic bottles. Find out why in the short video below:

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.
