Avoid These Common Off-Grid Mistakes!

off-grid

If you’re like most preppers, you dream about living off-grid one day. There’s just something about living off the land and building/growing your own resources that humans keep coming back to. It’s in our blood – and it’s been that way since the dawn of time.

However, most preppers think living off-grid is a whole lot easier than it actually is. And this can be a pretty rude awakening – especially if you don’t really know what you’re getting yourself into.

Off-grid living can be a great adventure if you’re able to mentally, physically and emotionally prepare for it. And, to do that, you’ll need to…

Avoid These Common Off-Grid Mistakes!

Not Checking The Zoning Laws

Many locations have zoning laws that prevent preppers from living off-grid. And, if you don’t know this ahead of time, you could spend a lot of money on a piece of property that you can’t actually live off of.

Some people can get around these laws by living in “tiny houses” that are built on top of a trailer. This way, by law, it’s not technically a “house.”

However, it’s much easier to just find a location that allows for off-grid living. Consult a local lawyer, and they’ll help ensure you pick a spot that you can legally live off of.

Not Having Sustainable Food Sources

Many preppers have a huge stockpile of food for when SHTF. But what about sustainable living?

Lots of people will claim they’ll grow a survival garden. However, many of these same people have never tried gardening or farming in their lives. And, even if you’re a pro, getting the results you want consistently can be really difficult.

Sure, you can learn all about gardening. But there are many factors (such as soil type, rainfall, weather conditions, climate, bug infestations, etc.) that are totally outside your control.

It’s still a good idea to have a survival garden. But the point is to have multiple ways to obtain food. This can include fishing, trapping, foraging for berries and herbs, and hunting.

Keep in mind it takes time, energy, knowledge, and patience to become adequate at any of these skillsets. Be sure to practice, learn, and become competent at them now before you try to live off-grid.

Not Being Able To Make A Living

One of the biggest perks about off-grid living is that it dramatically lowers your living expenses.

However, many preppers don’t consider that you will still have some expenses that you need to be able to pay for. This is especially the case in the beginning, when you’re getting everything set up.

As such, you’re going to have to find a way to bring in some extra income. Many preppers resort to making custom crafts, making soaps, or growing organic foods to bring  in some cash. You can also build furniture, make preserves, or sell extra crops your family doesn’t need.

Whatever it is, make sure it’s sustainable to keep you and your family alive and happy.

Not Having Convenient Water Access

Every prepper knows you’re going to need water for a crisis, as well as everyday life. However, what many people don’t consider is that they need a safe and convenient way to access it.

One of the best ways to accomplish this task is to drill a well on the property. Now, keep in mind this will cost you a few thousand dollars up front. However, it’s worth it.

And then there’s the issue of having water on your property. Not all land has water underneath it, so you’ll need to first ensure there’s enough down there to use.

Have an expert come out to the property to test for water. This is one of the best ways of ensuring there is (or is not) water on the property, do you don’t start drilling for nothing.

If you don’t want a well, you can also live close to a natural water source, and filter it yourself. You can either purchase a budget water filter, or get an all-out filtration rig.

BONUS: MORE TIPS

The fact is, this is just the beginning. There are WAY more factors to consider when preparing to live off-grid. And it’s always better to learn from other people’s mistakes than your own when possible.

SICK: Migrant Invader Filmed His Rape of 13-Year-Old Girl

juarez-mexico-11152022-venezuelan-migrants-cross

The appalling case of Christian Inga, a 25-year-old migrant from Ecuador accused of raping a 13-year-old girl at knifepoint in broad daylight in Queens, New York, lays bare the catastrophic consequences of President Joe Biden’s lax immigration policies. Prosecutors allege that Inga even filmed the attack, adding an unimaginable level of horror to this already heinous crime.

Inga, who has been arrested and charged by the NYPD with numerous offenses including rape, sexual abuse, robbery, kidnapping, criminal possession of a weapon, menacing, and unlawful imprisonment, approached two 13-year-olds near Kissena Park in East Flushing, Queens. When the children initially refused his demand to follow him into a wooded area, he brandished a machete, forcing them into compliance.

Once in the woods, Inga allegedly tied up the children and proceeded to rape the 13-year-old girl, admitting to filming the brutal attack. The New York Post reports:

“The Ecuadorian migrant charged with raping a 13-year-old girl he bound and gagged in a Queens park told cops he recorded the attack during a sickening taped confession, prosecutors alleged Wednesday.”

This chilling admission during a hushed court hearing has sent shockwaves through the community. Inga first crossed the United States-Mexico border with his three-year-old son in June 2021 near Eagle Pass, Texas. Despite being ordered deported by a federal immigration judge in February 2022, he was released into the U.S. interior with a Notice to Appear (NTA), showcasing the glaring failures of the Biden administration’s immigration enforcement.

Inga’s criminal record extends beyond this appalling incident. He has had three summonses in the past — for having an open container in December 2022, jumping a subway turnstile in March 2023, and trespassing in May 2023. Additionally, NYPD officers were called to break up a fight at a residence in Queens in January, resulting in a domestic violence report, although he was not arrested.

This is just the latest incident of horrific, sickening crime committed by one of Biden’s illegal migrant invaders. The blame for this crime can be laid squarely at the feet of the Biden Administration and their lax policies at our Southern border, where known violent criminals arrive by the thousands every day.

California Senate Allows Schools to Trans Kids Without Informing Parents

sacramento-caus-june-10-2018-unidentified

The California Senate’s recent approval of a bill that would bar school districts from informing parents if their child decides to go by a new pronoun at school is a brazen and outrageous assault on parental rights and family integrity. This shocking legislation strips parents of their fundamental right to be involved in their children’s lives, placing the state in a position of unwarranted authority over deeply personal family matters.

This bill is a blatant and egregious attempt to undermine parental authority. It forbids school districts from enforcing policies that require teachers to disclose a student’s gender identity or sexual orientation to their parents without the child’s consent. Proponents of this bill claim it is necessary to protect students who might face hostility at home. However, this sweeping, one-size-fits-all policy fails to recognize the critical role that parents play in guiding, nurturing, and supporting their children through complex and challenging issues.

More disturbingly, this bill opens the door for schools to covertly influence or even convert children’s gender identities under the radar and without parental knowledge. It grants schools unchecked power to make life-altering decisions about children’s gender identities, effectively sidelining parents and keeping them in the dark about significant changes in their child’s life.

Greg Burt, vice president of the California Family Council, forcefully criticized the bill’s flawed assumption that parents are inherently unsafe. “You don’t assume that all parents are unsafe,” Burt declared. “That shouldn’t be the assumption.” His stance resonates with countless parents who believe they have an inherent right and responsibility to know what is happening in their children’s lives, particularly if their children begin identifying as “trans” or experiencing gender dysphoria.

This bill, now advancing to the state Assembly, represents a profound overreach by the state into family matters. Attorney General Rob Bonta’s lawsuit against the Chino Valley Unified School District for its parental notification policy further illustrates the radical lengths to which state officials will go to keep parents in the dark. This aggressive legal stance is an affront to every parent who values transparency and their critical role in their child’s upbringing.

The potential passage of this bill would be a disaster for parental rights and family cohesion. It sets a dangerous precedent, effectively telling parents they cannot be trusted with information about their own children. This is a gross overstep by the government and a betrayal of the trust and authority parents rightfully hold.

The fight to uphold parental rights is far from over. Advocates for transparency and parental involvement must continue to push back against this overreaching legislation. Parents deserve to be informed and involved in all aspects of their children’s lives. Anything less is an unacceptable infringement on their rights and a disservice to the children who depend on them. This bill must be stopped to protect the sanctity of the family and ensure that parents retain their rightful place in their children’s lives. Schools should not be allowed to covertly influence or change children’s gender identities without the knowledge and involvement of their parents. This covert manipulation is an affront to family values and the sacred bond between parent and child.

Illegals, Non-Citizens Voting in American Elections

female-voter-bulletin-hands-comes-voting

Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) is sounding the alarm on the scandalous reality of non-citizens voting in American elections. Appearing on Breitbart News Daily, he tore into the deeply troubling issue, calling for urgent action through the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act to restore the integrity of the U.S. electoral system.

Roy didn’t mince words. He exposed the shocking evidence of non-citizens voting, whether they are here legally or illegally. Studies have shown that such illegal voting has potentially swayed elections, like the highly controversial election of Al Franken in Minnesota. Just last year, Virginia had to purge 1,500 registered voters who had no right to vote. This isn’t an isolated problem; it’s a widespread epidemic infecting cities like Oakland, San Francisco, Washington, DC, and New York City. These jurisdictions are recklessly registering non-citizens for local and state elections, creating a dangerous loophole that could easily allow them to vote in federal elections.

Roy lambasted the federal laws that cripple states’ abilities to verify citizenship, forcing states like Arizona to juggle two separate election systems. This bureaucratic nightmare is an affront to every American voter who expects and deserves a fair and legal election process.

The Motor Voter Act of the 1990s, Roy argued, has only worsened the situation by making it nearly impossible for states to ensure that only citizens are voting. The federal forms may ask individuals to declare their citizenship, but there is no real enforcement or verification, leaving the door wide open for fraud and abuse.

The SAVE Act is Roy’s proposed solution, demanding proof of citizenship for anyone registering to vote. He acknowledged the unique challenges of states like North Dakota, which do not have voter registration, but insisted that the bill is adaptable to different state needs while maintaining its core mission: protecting the vote of American citizens.

Roy made it clear that this is not a partisan issue; it’s a matter of national security and democratic integrity. He cited a recent vote in Washington, DC, where 52 Democrats supported ending the registration of non-citizens for elections, showcasing the broad support for this critical issue. However, he also highlighted the fierce opposition from many Democrats who refuse to ensure that congressional seats and allocations are based on citizenship.

In a powerful conclusion, Roy condemned the Biden administration for flooding the country with millions of non-citizens, exacerbating the crisis. He called for immediate action to stop the outrageous betrayal of American voters and protect the democratic process from being hijacked by those who have no right to participate in it.

This is not just a policy debate; it’s a battle for the very soul of American democracy. The time to act is now, before the right to vote is further eroded by the influx of non-citizens and the reckless policies enabling them.
