8 Surprising Survival Uses for Coffee Grounds

Grow Your Own Mushrooms

Better yet, you can reuse these coffee grounds for YEARS before they lose their nutritious benefits. Check out the video below to learn more about this process!

** We’ve got TONS of survival uses for plastic buckets in our new survival article! Check it out here.

Fertilize Your Garden

Want your plants to grow up big, strong and healthy? Add coffee grounds to your existing compost pile. Then when it’s ready for fertilization, add the compost to your plants and water them. That nutrition-dense fertilizer will give your plants the boost they need to thrive!

Clean The Pots + Pans

Coffee grounds are naturally abrasive, and you can use this to your advantage when cleaning out your cookware. Not to mention, it works great on getting stubborn food off cast iron!

For normal cookware, add the coffee grounds and a little bit of water and scrub away.

Cast iron hates water unless you’re willing to dry it thoroughly over high heat. It also despises soap. Therefore an easy, quick solution is to pour plenty of grounds into the empty, dry cast iron and rub it all over using a paper towel.

The grounds will work to scrub off that hardened food, and you won’t have to go through the process of drying. Toss out the grounds and towel when it’s nice and clean.

Trap + Prevent Pests

Coffee grounds can be a beneficial and natural tool for either trapping or repelling household pests. For instance, roaches are attracted to coffee grounds, so putting a small mound near windows, wall/door cracks, etc can entice them – and allow you to trap them.

Meanwhile, pests like ants, slugs and snails tend to stay away from coffee grounds due to the caffeine. Sprinkle it around common household areas these pests like to enter through. You can also sprinkle the grounds into your garden to help keep these pests (and even cats!) away from your plants.

Take Your Meat To The Next Level

Good news! Coffee grounds can both be useful for tenderizing your meat, as well as making a marinade out of it. By simply mixing them with a liquid, this will add a nice, smokey flavor you’ll love.

Freshen The Air

Love the smell of coffee? Place the grounds on a cookie sheet to dry completely. Then place them inside the foot of a pair of pantyhose** and tie off the top. You’ve now got an effective and fantastic-smelling air freshener!

Prevent Injuries

Coffee grounds can be essential for preventing slips and falls in the winter. Simply lay these onto icy walkways to help give walkers traction. The grounds can even speed up the melting process!

Natural Exfoliant

Coffee grounds can be great for exfoliating dead skin on your face, hands and rest of your body. Combine it with coconut oil and rub it all over your skin, and then rinse. You’ll love the soft, smooth feel it brings!

Judge Threatens to Arrest Trump for Going to His Son’s Graduation

new-york-ny-july-20-2022

Donald Trump, often maligned by his critics, has demonstrated one undeniable truth throughout his public life: he is a devoted and exceptional father. Observing him with his children—Don Jr., Ivanka, Eric, Tiffany, and Barron—reveals a man who is not only proud but profoundly nurturing. This connection with his children, built on respect and genuine affection, is something that any parent can recognize as authentic and admirable.

Amidst his many battles, the commitment Trump shows to his family life remains unshakeable, even as he faces an unprecedented and, many would argue, highly politicized trial. It’s utterly disheartening to see how low his opponents are willing to stoop in their pursuit to tarnish his image—so much so, that they would even suggest jailing him should he decide to attend his youngest son Barron’s graduation. This insinuation by Justice Juan Merchan is not only absurd but strikes at the heart of basic human decency.

Consider the sheer joy and pride a parent feels witnessing their child achieve a milestone like graduation. Barron, having grown up under the intense scrutiny of his father’s high-profile career, deserves to celebrate his graduation day with both his parents by his side, without the shadow of political vendettas darkening this important family moment.

The trumped up case against Trump, centered around alleged hush money related to an encounter with Stormy Daniels, is based on alleged actions that took place long before he entered the political arena. If we examine this scenario critically, it’s clear that this is a common enough practice among the elite to protect personal and family privacy. Yet, it’s portrayed as a sinister plot solely because Trump is the individual involved. This represents a glaring double standard, especially when compared to how similar situations have been handled with other public figures.

Let’s not forget, Bill Clinton, while President, engaged in far more directly compromising behavior, yet faced no criminal trial. His ability to attend his daughter Chelsea’s graduation and celebrate this occasion publicly was never questioned or jeopardized by his legal entanglements or the moral judgments of others.

It’s a stark illustration of the hypocrisy and bias that drives the actions of those who oppose Trump at every turn. This trial, and the drama surrounding his ability to participate in his son’s graduation, underscores a broader attempt to undermine him in the most personal and painful ways.

Should the situation arise where Trump is barred from attending Barron’s graduation, he should undoubtedly prioritize his paternal duties. Such an act would likely resonate with many Americans who value family and parental rights, potentially rallying more support for Trump in any future endeavors, including elections.

In the end, Trump’s enduring commitment to his family, despite the relentless attacks against him, not only humanizes him but also exemplifies his resilience and dedication. It’s essential to recognize and commend his role as a father amidst the tumult of political strife.

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.
