12 DIY Security Methods To Protect Your Home When SHTF

DIY security

There are tons of simple, DIY security methods to protect your home when SHTF. And the good news is these are things you can easily do on your own.

Home security systems are great – but they can be insanely expensive. Not to mention, if there’s a system failure (or the burglar knows how to deactivate it), well, you’re at a loss.

Thankfully there are ways to protect your home for WAY less money. And these solutions can help keep thieves away so that your family and your stuff stay safe from harm.

Here are…

12 DIY Security Methods To Protect Your Home When SHTF

1 – Be Coy With Your Keys

Many of us think we’re being sneaky when we hide the key under the doormat, under the flowerpot, etc. Unfortunately, burglars have caught on and check these places, too. Instead, hide the key about 50 ft away from your home in an inconspicuous place. You can also use a small key vault with a code key (like the ones real estate agents use).

2 – Use Plant Protection

Be intentional with your garden by planting threatening plants around common points of entry, such as under windows. These include thistles, rose bushes, blackberry vines, and holly. These plants have thorns that will help make thieves think twice before attempting to break in.

3 – Invest In A Canine

Getting a big dog (or any dog with a big, intimidating bark) may be helpful when keeping intruders away. Plus if they try to get in while you’re asleep, that bark will wake you up, and get you ready to protect yourself.

4 – Track Their Movements

Motion sensors are a great way to help stop thieves in their tracks. Plus they can surprise intruders by flooding them with light if they try to break in at nighttime. Make sure to put these around areas that thieves might break into, such as doors (including front, side and back doors) and windows.

5 – Make Your Door Stronger

This sounds like a lot of work – but it doesn’t have to be. Here are some ways to help strengthen your door from incoming burglars:

  • Use multiple locks at varying heights (have two at the same height)
  • Install long-throw deadbolts
  • Use fortified strike plates to stop them from entering
  • Replace your door frame with one made out of metal
  • Keep the door more secure by drilling long wood screws into the frame
  • Get a steel core door instead of a wooden one
  • Make sure all windows don’t have exposed locks
6 – Communicate With Your Post Office

Going out of town? Call the post office to hold all mail and packages. Also, call the people who deliver your newspaper. This will help keep burglars clueless as to when you’re home, and when you’re not.

7 – Keep The Blinds Closed

Keep the blinds closed and your valuables hidden as much as possible while you’re home and when you’re away. This will help keep burglars from knowing what you’ve got, and attempting to steal it.

8 – Take Advantage Of Inside Locks

Whether you’ve got survival preps, ammo, guns, or expensive jewelry it’s important to keep them locked away for safe keeping. Keep these valuables locked away when you’re not using them to help prevent access.

9 – Keep Your Windows & Glass Doors Secure

Sliding glass doors and windows are extremely common break-in points. For doors, they’re relatively easy to remove them from their tracks. For windows, they can be easily forced open.

Prevent sliding doors from being broken into by placing a charlie bar or metal/wood rod into the track. This will help prevent the doors from being forced open.

For windows, you can put screws in the track to prevent break-ins. You can also add more locks, or put steel bars on the windows (must unlock from the inside) to help keep them secure.

10 – Get To Know Your Neighbors

People knowing their neighbors is pretty rare nowadays. However, these people can be some of the biggest assets into helping you keep an eye out on your house.

Trustworthy neighbors can help by collecting mail/newspapers, taking out the trash, taking care of the pets, and more while you’re away. Plus, they’re likely to notice if something fishy is going on.

You don’t have to be their best friend – but building a friendship with a trustworthy neighbor can go a long way into helping you protect your home.

11 – Keep Your Keys and Address Separate

Some people have attached an address tag to their keys in case they become lost. It’s shocking that some people do this  – especially since this can be an invitation for anyone to just waltz in and take your belongings.

Keep backup keys and remove all identifying information from all keys. That way you have a spare, and the person with the key won’t know where to find your house.

12 – Take Advantage Of Cameras

Cameras are excellent tools for catching criminals in the act. And when they’re gone, you can always look at the footage to show the cops. Not to mention, if a thief sees your house as a camera, this will likely deter them from even attempting to break in.

CCTV setups are affordable, simple to use, and provide high-quality video. Fake cameras won’t be as expensive, but you won’t be able to get the footage for later.


Majority of Job Growth Since 2019 Has Gone to Migrant Invaders


The majority of job growth in the United States since 2019 has gone to newly arrived migrants, while working-class American men continue to fall out of the labor force, an alarming analysis reveals.

Steven Camarota at the Center for Immigration Studies published this analysis, showcasing the devastating impact of President Joe Biden’s agenda to expand the labor market through mass immigration. Instead of focusing on getting Americans back to work, Biden’s policies have overwhelmingly favored migrants, both legal and illegal, at the expense of American workers.

Since 2019, before the Chinese coronavirus pandemic disrupted the economy, about 75 percent of all U.S. job growth has been attributed to newly arrived migrants. In stark contrast, fewer than one million Americans have joined the workforce during the same period. This betrayal of American workers is nothing short of scandalous.

“The government’s household survey shows that there were only 971,000 more U.S.-born Americans employed in May 2024 compared to May 2019 prior to the pandemic, while the number of employed immigrants has increased by 3.2 million,” Camarota writes. This stark disparity highlights the Biden Administration’s prioritization of foreign workers over American citizens.

Meanwhile, labor participation among working-class American men continues to decline dramatically. For American men in the prime age range of 25 to 54 years old with only a high school diploma, labor participation has plummeted from 95.7 percent in 1960 to a shocking 81.6 percent in 2024. Similarly, for those without a bachelor’s degree, labor participation fell from 95.8 percent in 1960 to a dismal 84.8 percent in 2024. Across all education levels, labor participation for prime-age American men has dropped nearly eight percentage points over 64 years, a clear sign of systemic neglect and failure.

Camarota emphasizes, “The labor force participation rate — the share working or looking for work — has declined dramatically among U.S.-born men since the 1960s, particularly for those without a bachelor’s degree. While labor force participation among these groups has roughly returned to pre-pandemic levels, the rate in 2024 remains at or near historical lows relative to other peaks in the business cycle. This is true even for U.S.-born men who are in the ‘prime’ 25-54 age range for working.” The administration’s disregard for these alarming statistics is both irresponsible and outrageous.

For years, the decline in labor participation among American men has been well-documented, yet the Biden Administration continues to prioritize the influx of newly arrived migrants, who are quickly awarded work permits after being released into the U.S. interior. Since 2023 alone, nearly 300,000 native-born Americans have fallen out of the workforce, while about 637,000 migrants have been added. This blatant disregard for American workers is unacceptable.

Biden’s policies have driven the foreign-born population to unprecedented heights. Today, the foreign-born population stands at a staggering 51.6 million — the largest ever recorded in American history. This means roughly three in 19 people living in the U.S. were born in a foreign country, a statistic that underscores the significant and troubling shift in the American labor market under the current administration. This is a clear indicator of the Biden Administration’s betrayal of American workers and its commitment to prioritizing foreign interests over those of its own citizens.

GUILTY: Hunter Biden Convicted on All Counts


In a significant blow to the Biden Administration, a federal jury has convicted Hunter Biden on all three federal felony gun charges he faced. This conviction underscores the corruption and lawlessness that many believe epitomize the Biden family.

Hunter Biden’s conviction is historic, marking the first time an immediate family member of a sitting president has been found guilty of a crime during their father’s term in office. The jury, deliberating for less than three hours, returned guilty verdicts on all charges related to a revolver Hunter Biden purchased in October 2018 at a Delaware gun shop.

The charges against Hunter Biden include two counts of lying about his drug use on a federal background check form and one count of possessing a gun while addicted to, or using, illegal drugs. Sentencing is typically set for 120 days following a verdict, and Hunter Biden could face up to 25 years in prison and a fine of $750,000. However, as a first-time offender, it is likely that his sentence will be far less severe, sparking concerns of preferential treatment.

Following the verdict, Hunter Biden expressed gratitude for his family’s support rather than addressing the gravity of his conviction. His attorney, Abbe Lowell, announced that they would continue to “vigorously pursue all the legal challenges available to Hunter,” displaying a defiant attitude despite the jury’s decision.

President Joe Biden, in a statement, reiterated his role as a supportive father rather than addressing the implications of his son’s criminal actions. “As I said last week, I am the President, but I am also a Dad. Jill and I love our son, and we are so proud of the man he is today,” he said, choosing to focus on familial bonds over accountability.

Special Counsel David Weiss emphasized that the case was about the “illegal choices” Hunter Biden made while using drugs, underscoring that no one is above the law. His comments highlighted the severity of Hunter Biden’s actions, contrary to the sympathetic narrative often promoted by the Biden Administration.

Inside the jury room, deliberations revealed an initial split among jurors. However, after thorough discussions of each crime’s elements, they reached a unanimous verdict. Some jurors felt they had no choice but to find Hunter Biden guilty, with one describing the case as a waste of taxpayer dollars—a sentiment that resonates with many critics of the administration.

Despite the serious nature of the crimes, some jurors expressed sympathy for Hunter Biden, focusing on the evidence rather than his lifestyle. This perspective further fuels the narrative of leniency and misplaced compassion often seen in cases involving politically connected individuals.

In a public display of support, President Joe Biden was seen hugging his son Hunter upon arriving at the Delaware Air National Guard Base, mere hours after the guilty verdict was announced. This embrace, captured on video, underscores the President’s unwavering support for his embattled son, even as public trust in his administration continues to erode.

Senate Republicans were quick to react, asserting that the guilty verdict shows the justice system worked, despite persistent claims of selective prosecution. Senators John Thune, Rick Scott, and Josh Hawley emphasized that the case against Hunter Biden followed existing law, in stark contrast to what they see as politically motivated charges against former President Donald Trump. This highlights the perceived double standards within the justice system under the Biden Administration.

A juror later revealed that the jury focused on evidence, not Hunter Biden’s lifestyle, during deliberations. This approach, while legally sound, does little to quell public outrage over the apparent disparity in how justice is administered to those with political connections.

In conclusion, Hunter Biden’s conviction is a stark reminder of the corruption and legal breaches rampant within the Biden family. The President’s continued support for his son, coupled with the leniency of the justice system, only serves to deepen public disillusionment with the current administration.

Israeli Forces Rescue Hostages from Hamas Terrorists in Dramatic Operation


On Monday, Israeli forces released dramatic video footage showing the daring rescue of four hostages held by Hamas terrorists in Gaza over the weekend. This footage, captured from helmet cameras of Yamam and Shin Bet’s operational units, as well as Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers, showcases the meticulous and courageous efforts in Nuseirat, a refugee camp in the Gaza Strip.

In a simultaneous operation at two locations, Yamam and Shin Bet operatives engaged in combat with Hamas terrorists to rescue the hostages. Noa Argamani, 26, was rescued at one site, while Shlomi Ziv, 41, Andrey Kozlov, 27, and Almog Meir Jan, 22, were freed from another location.

Footage obtained by Fox News Digital shows Yamam officers and Shin Bet operatives storming the location where Ziv, Kozlov, and Jan were held. They are later seen boarding a helicopter, being flown back to Israel to safety.

All four hostages were abducted from a desert rave near the border during Hamas’s brutal and unprovoked assault on Israel on October 7. This rescue operation was part of a broader Israeli air and ground offensive in central Gaza, which health officials claim resulted in the deaths of 274 Palestinians. This comes at a critical juncture in the eight-month conflict as Israel and Hamas weigh a U.S. proposal for a cease-fire and the release of the remaining captives.

Hamas and other militants killed approximately 1,200 people in the October 7 attack and captured around 250 others, including men, women, children, and older adults. Since then, the Hamas-run Health Ministry in Gaza claims nearly 37,000 Palestinians have been killed in Israel’s ground offensive. It is important to note that Hamas does not distinguish between fighters and civilians in its reports.

Israel has contested these figures, emphasizing that its soldiers are specifically targeting Hamas terrorists who deliberately operate within dense urban areas, using civilians as human shields.

More than 100 captives, mostly women and children, were freed in exchange for Palestinians imprisoned by Israel during a weeklong cease-fire in November.

Israeli authorities estimate that Hamas is still holding around 120 hostages, with 43 pronounced dead. The remaining survivors include about 15 women, two children under the age of 5, and two men in their 80s.

This heroic rescue operation underscores the ongoing struggle against Hamas’s brutal tactics and the lengths to which Israeli forces will go to protect and rescue their citizens.

Vice President Kamala Harris mourned the death of the Hamas members killed in the raid.
