7 Survival Uses For Newspapers

survival uses for newspapers

Many people don’t stop to think about all the survival uses for newspapers that exist. And, to be honest, I can’t really blame them. Newspapers have been dying out for a while now. And it’s come to the point where society generally either throws these out without a second thought, or uses them to make papier-mâché crafts.

However, there’s a whole lot more to these simple pieces of printed paper. And preppers can get a leg up on an upcoming emergency by learning about these…

7 Survival Uses For Newspapers

DIY Dinner Bowls

Did you know you can use newspapers to make your own dinner bowls? To do this, simply rip the newspapers into large pieces (each one about half a page). Then lay these pieces inside a colander so they’re pressed against the metal. Cover the rim of the colander with paper strips as well.

Repeat this process until you’ve got a thick amount of paper. Then put the colander in the sink and let the faucet run all over the paper. While the water drenches the paper, continually pound the bottom, pinch the edges and press the sides so the paper maintains its shape.

Now take even more pieces of dry newspaper, lay them on top of the wet pieces, and repeat the process (lay dry paper, wet it down, push and press it down as you go). As you do this, the newspaper layers will begin to stick together.

Once you have a thick, wet bowl inside the colander, you’re going to want to leave it in the colander and let it dry completely. This will take a few days.

Once completely dry, you can remove the paper from the bowl, and use this new newspaper bowl for holding food, survival supplies, and other useful things.

Keep Dry

If you need to sleep on the grass/dirt, newspapers can help cushion your sleeping area. Lay newspaper sheets on the ground, and then put your sleeping bag on top. (You can also sleep directly on the paper).

Be sure to lay a thick layer of paper down so that you can stay dry from the dew on the grass.

Stay Warm

Exposure is the #1 killer in a crisis. And if you’re still freezing after putting on your warmest layer, the outlook doesn’t look good.

Thankfully, you can use newspapers as an additional layer of insulation. Stuff pieces of newspapers in your shirt, pants, jacket, etc. If you’re feeling fancy, you can also use tape to line your clothing with the papers. These will help keep your body warmth close to the surface of your skin, helping protect you from the frigid temperatures.

Dry Out Your Footwear

If you’ve got cold, wet feet you’re putting yourself at risk of hypothermia (and other dangers). That’s why it’s critical to keep your feet dry and warm at all times.

One of the ways to help you do this is by stuffing newspaper into your shoes/boots when you take them off at night. Leave them like this until the next day, and the newspaper will have absorbed much of the water. Your shoes should be dry and good to go.

Speed Up Time

Produce like bananas, avocados and tomatoes are often best at their peak of ripeness. And if you eat them before this time, they’re not very good.

If you’re starving and need to eat these foods ASAP, you can speed up time with the help of newspaper. Simply wrap it around your fruits and veggies, leaving the ends open so air can get in. This will speed up the produce ripening time, while simultaneously helping prevent rot.

Stop A Bullet In Its Tracks

Newspaper on its own doesn’t look very strong. However, when you’ve got a large stack, it can be thick enough to stop a bullet in its tracks!

Knowing this, you can insulate your windows, walls and more with tons of thick newspaper. This can help bulletproof your home/shelter.

Here’s a video of a couple guys testing out this theory.

Make A Powerful Defense Weapon

Want to make a cool DIY survival weapon? Look no further than newspaper (and other everyday resources) to make this happen. These weapons are proof that “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”

BONUS: More Newspaper Uses

As you’re likely starting to realize, newspapers are way more useful than most of us think. And there are way more uses for them than what’s been shared in this blog so far.

Therefore, to get the most “bang for your buck” as they say, here’s a video showing you even more cool ways to use this abundant (and cheap!) resource. Enjoy!


Biden Commissions a Poll… on Harris in 2024!


The Biden-Harris Campaign has reportedly commissioned an internal poll to gauge how Vice President Kamala Harris would perform as the Democratic nominee against former President Donald Trump. This development was reported by The New York Times on Thursday, citing three anonymous sources who are informed about the matter. The move comes as discussions within the Democratic Party intensify regarding the possibility of replacing President Joe Biden at the top of the ticket, following his disastrous debate performance that has sent shockwaves through the party.

The New York Times report notes that the campaign has not specified why the survey is being conducted or what the campaign plans to do with the results. This appears to be the first Trump versus Harris poll commissioned by the campaign since the debate. It is also unclear which outfit is conducting the survey.

Campaign Manager Julie Chavez Rodriguez and Campaign Chair Jennifer O’Malley Dillon attempted to reassure staff in an internal memo, emphasizing that Biden remains the most viable candidate and that he has a path to victory. They argued that hypothetical polling of alternative nominees is unreliable and that Biden is the only Democratic candidate for whom the negative media environment is already accounted for.

Despite these reassurances, recent polls and internal discussions suggest growing doubts about Biden’s candidacy. A poll from Emerson College Polling published Tuesday showed Trump with a larger lead over Harris than over Biden, indicating that Trump led Biden by three points and Harris by six in hypothetical two-way races.

Adding to the turmoil, some of Biden’s close allies are reportedly devising strategies to convince him to end his candidacy. NBC News reported that several sources within Biden’s circle say his bid for the White House is a lost cause. One Biden campaign official stated, “He needs to drop out. He will never recover from this.”

The commissioning of this internal poll is a stark admission of President Joe Biden’s deteriorating mental state. This unprecedented move highlights the growing concerns within the Democratic Party about Biden’s cognitive decline and raises serious questions about his ability to continue leading the nation.

The fact that the Biden-Harris campaign is even considering Harris as a potential nominee underscores the gravity of Biden’s cognitive issues. The campaign’s decision to assess Harris’s viability as a replacement candidate against Trump is a clear indication that they are grappling with the reality of Biden’s declining mental faculties.

Despite attempts by campaign officials to reassure staff, the frequency and gravity of Biden’s errors are alarming. The Emerson College Polling results, showing Trump with a larger lead over Harris than over Biden, further complicate the narrative and suggest that switching candidates may not solve the Democrats’ problems.

Reports from The New York Times and NBC News indicate that some of Biden’s close allies are devising strategies to convince him to end his candidacy. This growing consensus among Biden’s supporters that his bid for re-election is untenable underscores the urgent need for action. One Biden campaign official bluntly told NBC News, “He needs to drop out. He will never recover from this.”

The implications of President Biden’s cognitive decline are profound and far-reaching. The President of the United States must be someone who can lead with clarity, decisiveness, and strength. Biden’s frequent gaffes and apparent confusion raise serious doubts about his ability to fulfill these responsibilities effectively.

The American people deserve a leader who is mentally fit to navigate the complexities of the presidency. Biden’s continued candidacy, in light of overwhelming evidence of cognitive decline, is not just a political issue; it is a national crisis. The Democratic Party must confront this reality and take decisive action to ensure that the country is led by someone capable of meeting the demands of the office.

The coming months will be critical for both President Biden and the Democratic Party. As calls for Biden to step aside grow louder, the party must consider the broader implications for the country. The focus must shift to ensuring that the next leader is not only politically viable but also mentally fit to lead. The stakes are too high to ignore the glaring signs of cognitive decline in the current President.

Quadruple Board Certified Doctor: Biden Has Parkinson’s, Brain Degeneration


In a revealing interview with NBC News, a respected quadruple board-certified neurologist from New York City, Dr. Tom Pitts, unequivocally stated that President Joe Biden “definitely” has Parkinson’s disease and brain degeneration.

Dr. Pitts spoke with NBC News’ Tom Llamas, who queried, “Given what you’ve observed from the president over the last two years, his debate performances, recent interviews, his speech patterns, and gait, do you see any red flags as a medical professional?”

“Oh yeah, I see him 20 times a day in clinic,” Pitts replied, highlighting how typical Biden’s symptoms were among his patients. “He exhibits classic features of neurodegeneration: word-finding difficulties—this isn’t merely ‘I couldn’t find the right word,’ it’s from degeneration of the word retrieval area.”

Llamas pointed out Biden’s history with stuttering, questioning if it could be related. Pitts firmly responded, “No, this is not a stuttering issue or speech discrepancy,” elaborating further, “Plus, the rigidity, monotone voice…”

Dr. Pitts continued, “When he turns, it’s an end-block turning; it’s not a swift motion. That’s a hallmark of Parkinson’s: rigidity and bradykinesia, slow movement. He has that hallmark, especially with the low voice attributed to a cold; hypophonia, a small monotone voice over time is a hallmark of Parkinsonism. I could have diagnosed him from across the mall.”

Describing Biden’s gait, Pitts noted, “Shuffling gait, we call that ‘little steps.’ Loss of arm swing due to rigidity; typically, we walk with a nice cadence, but he doesn’t swing his arms. End-block turning means he pivots around his foot. If you called out, ‘Hey, President Biden,’ he wouldn’t swiftly turn to look behind him.”

When Llamas suggested Parkinson’s is challenging to diagnose, Pitts disagreed, “It’s one of the easier movement disorders to diagnose. I’m a Democrat… This isn’t a difficult case. Once you start manifesting the hallmark motor symptoms—slow movement, rigidity, masked facies, hypophonia—if a med student didn’t recognize Parkinson’s on a test, they’d fail.”

Bluntly, Pitts concluded, “His motor symptoms are degenerating. He has Parkinsonisms. That is a fact. He has brain degeneration. Show me the MRI. Prove he doesn’t. Put your money where your mouth is. He definitely has it.”

For conservatives concerned about the nation’s leadership, these assertions raise serious questions about President Biden’s cognitive fitness to serve in the highest office.

Trump and His Allies Move to Destroy Biden Campaign


( – Politico revealed on Monday that a pro-Trump super PAC receiving significant funding from billionaire Miriam Adelson is preparing to launch a $61 million advertising campaign this month to deal a fatal blow to President Joe Biden’s struggling campaign.

A source informed Politico that a revitalized and redesigned Preserve America will run advertisements this month as the Summer Olympics get underway in Paris.

The story stated that the ads would run in swing states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

In May, it was revealed that Adelson intended to contribute significantly to Preserve America, a group established amid President Donald Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign.

Although it is currently uncertain how much the super PAC will rely on Adelson’s contributions, sources informed Politico in May that she intends to raise her 2020 donation of $90 million.

Her and her late husband’s contributions accounted for 85% of Preserve America’s funding. Sheldon Adelson, the late billionaire who owned casinos, passed away on January 11, 2021.

Adelson’s wife, who now controls their contributions, plans to increase their super PAC funding.

Preserve America’s goal is to capitalize on the internal Democratic squabbling that followed the June 27 presidential debate. Several Democrats have demanded that Biden resign as his polling numbers have dropped.

Adelson and her son-in-law are Las Vegas Sands’s principal shareholders and jointly own most of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks.

According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, she is worth $33.3 billion.
