The Miraculous Way To Regrow Vegetables

I have just discovered an absolutely incredible way to regrow vegetables!

Ever since I started eating healthy, I’ve been finding myself paying a heck of a lot more money on veggies than I used to. And this got me thinking…there’s got to be a better way to get more of this healthy food for less money!

I started doing some research, and I came across this crazy video. It shows how to take the bottom part of a head of lettuce, stick it in some water, and presto – you can regrow it!

Isn’t that insane?

This process of regrowing vegetables could easily save millions of lives (and millions of dollars). Plus, in an SHTF situation when the grocery store shelves are cleared, this could truly be a godsend.

I know that vegetables aren’t the most exciting thing, and that the idea of regrowing a salad over and over is nothing to throw a party about (most likely). Plus, let’s face it. Most of us aren’t exactly known for eating our vegetables.

However, it’s crucial to remember how important vegetables are for your health – especially when SHTF. These natural foods are chock-full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber while being low in calories and fat. Many also help lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Not to mention they’re full of fiber, so you’ll actually feel more full on less of it!

Think about it this way. Even if you don’t like vegetables, they can be crucial for your survival in a crisis. After all, you’ll need your body to be at its absolute peak in order to deal with the demands of a survival situation.

Plus, you can always dice the veggies up in stews, sauces, soups, etc. This way you might not even recognize they’re in your food!

Once I discovered this amazing technique of regrowing vegetables, I was determined to know more. And what I was able to find was incredible. It turns out there are A TON more ways to regrow vegetables than I ever thought possible!

Pay close attention to this information. You’ll not only want to use it in day-to-day life to save money on your grocery bills, but you’ll also surely need it once SHTF!

Is Biden’s Brain Tapioca? One Tennessee Republican Thinks So

washington-dc-usa-january-31-2024

The White House would be required to notify Congress whenever the president takes a drug that could impact his alertness, judgment, or mood, under a new bill proposed by Tennessee Republican Rep. Andy Ogles.

“Joe Biden’s embarrassing outbursts of anger and incomprehensible speeches mirror the incalculable damage his policies have inflicted on our nation,” Rep. Ogles stated.

“Frequently slurred speech, abnormally long pauses, and the inability to string together five coherent words have put Biden’s mental and physical decline on full display,” he said. “It is unfair to the American people for the White House to be occupied by someone who is literally incapable of speaking.”

Ogles introduced his bill — the No Juicing Joe Act — because the White House “has refused” to test President Biden’s cognitive abilities “because they know he will fail miserably.” Biden is scheduled to debate former President Trump, the GOP nominee, later this month.

Rep. Andy Ogles, R-Tenn., introduced the No Juicing Joe Act, citing historical precedents where presidential health issues affected their duties. He pointed to President John F. Kennedy’s treatment by Dr. Max Jacobson, known as “Doctor Feelgood,” and Woodrow Wilson’s post-stroke incapacitation, which led to the 21st Amendment.

“The president, whose office is the most powerful on earth, must be accountable to the people, and it’s Congress’s duty to ensure accountability,” Ogles said.

In response, a White House spokesperson claimed that criticisms of Biden’s cognitive state were politically motivated. However, the growing number of incidents raises serious concerns. After losing numerous negotiations and witnessing the administration’s failures across various sectors, it’s becoming increasingly clear that these issues are not just about policy but about the president’s ability to perform his duties effectively.

The Republican National Committee’s research division posted several videos that appeared to show President Biden in a “perpetual state of confusion.” One video from his recent speech in Normandy commemorating the 80th anniversary of D-Day showed Biden bending down, seemingly uncertain whether it was time to sit down.

Questions about Biden’s mental acuity also circulated last week after a bombshell report interviewed 45 lawmakers and administration officials about Biden’s mental performance.

Biden, 81, is the oldest person to hold the presidency and has faced skepticism from voters and Republican lawmakers about his ability to do his job. Many Republicans and even some Democrats said the president showed his age in private meetings.

Most of the people interviewed by the report who were critical of Biden’s performance were Republicans, although some Democrats acknowledged the president showed his age in several exchanges. These interviewees participated in meetings with Biden or were briefed on them contemporaneously, including administration officials and other Democrats who did not express concerns about how the president handled the meetings.

White House officials, however, dismissed many of these accounts, saying such criticisms were motivated by partisan politics.

The growing concern over Biden’s mental fitness is driving legislative efforts like the No Juicing Joe Act to ensure transparency and accountability in presidential health, highlighting the critical need for a capable and alert leader in the White House. The American people deserve a president who can effectively communicate and make sound decisions, and it is Congress’s duty to uphold this standard.

House Holds AG Garland in Contempt, Referred for Criminal Charges

washington-dc-usa-oct-26-2023

In a decisive move that upholds the rule of law, the House of Representatives voted to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress on Wednesday, referring the top Department of Justice (DOJ) official for criminal charges. This is a significant victory for those who believe in holding our leaders accountable and ensuring transparency in government.

The measure passed nearly along party lines in a 216 to 207 vote, with just one Republican, Rep. David Joyce of Ohio, betraying his party and his constituents. Joyce, a former prosecutor, argued against the resolution, claiming it would further politicize the judicial system. However, his lone dissent only highlights his failure to stand up for justice. It’s clear that Joyce must be voted out in November to restore true conservative leadership.

Garland’s refusal to turn over audio recordings of Special Counsel Robert Hur’s interview with President Biden is a blatant obstruction of justice. These recordings are crucial for understanding Biden’s mishandling of classified documents and his mental state during the investigation. Hur concluded that no criminal charges were warranted, but described Biden as presenting himself “as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.” This characterization raises serious concerns about Biden’s fitness for office and the potential leniency he received.

Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., led the charge, ensuring the contempt resolution passed. This action demonstrates the GOP’s unwavering commitment to transparency and accountability. Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, voiced the frustration felt by many, stating, “There’s only one reason why the attorney general would do that. He doesn’t want us to hear it.”

This move is part of a broader effort by House Republicans to hold the Biden administration accountable. The pursuit of Hur’s audio tapes is just one aspect of the GOP’s wider impeachment inquiry into President Biden, investigating allegations that he used his political position to enrich himself and his family. Despite Biden’s denials of wrongdoing, the truth must come out.

The DOJ, however, is unlikely to act on this contempt referral, as indicated by past inaction on similar resolutions. This reality frustrates many Republicans, who see the DOJ as biased and unwilling to hold their own accountable. Rep. Rich McCormick, R-Ga., expressed this sentiment, saying, “I’m not optimistic, because I think the DOJ has proven themselves very partisan and not honest brokers of how they apply the law.”

The Dangers of Biden’s Weakness: Russian Ships off the Coast of Florida

rocket-launch-warship-start-antiship-missile

When it comes to national security, President Biden’s actions are not just weak—they’re downright reckless and dangerous. This week, a fleet of Russian warships brazenly entered Cuban waters, preparing for military drills in the Caribbean. This aggressive move is a direct threat to the United States, underscoring the dangerous consequences of Biden’s soft stance on national security.

Just this week, a fleet of Russian warships brazenly entered Cuban waters, preparing for military drills in the Caribbean. This aggressive move is a direct warning to President Biden, who recently approved Ukrainian forces to strike targets within Russia using U.S. weaponry. Strategic intelligence analyst Rebekah Koffler, author of “Putin’s Playbook,” interprets this deployment as a clear message from Russian President Vladimir Putin to Washington: “We can touch you.”

“Putin wants to be close to the U.S. homeland at this time when the Russia-Ukraine crisis is on a highly escalatory trajectory — given Biden’s authorization to Ukraine. If something goes wrong and Ukraine strikes critical targets in Russia close to major cities, the Russian military can enable the Cubans to strike targets inside the U.S. or strike U.S. interests,” Koffler explains.

Three Russian warships arrived at Havana Bay on Wednesday, greeted by a 21-cannon salute. Following them is a nuclear-powered submarine, the Kazan, which Russia claims is not carrying nuclear weapons. This is a chilling reminder of the dangers we face due to Biden’s misguided policies.

President Biden’s recent actions have only emboldened our enemies. His reckless approval for Ukraine to use American missiles against Russian targets has escalated tensions to a boiling point. Ukraine, struggling in its battle of attrition against Russian forces, has failed to secure major breakthroughs despite these counterattacks.

The presence of Russian warships in Cuba and Putin’s threats to supply weapons to U.S. neighbors are stark reminders of the perilous situation we are in. Putin’s recent suggestion that Russia may authorize strikes on the U.S. via proxy countries is a direct consequence of Biden’s weak leadership.

“Most of all, the warships are a reminder to Washington that it is unpleasant when an adversary meddles in your near abroad,” said Benjamin Gedan, director of the Latin America program at the Wilson Center. This situation underscores the need for strong, decisive leadership to protect our national security, something Biden has utterly failed to provide.

Putin’s rhetoric and actions highlight the precarious position we are in under Biden’s leadership. His statement last week about supplying weapons to regions that can strike sensitive U.S. facilities should alarm every American: “If [the U.S.] considers it possible to deliver such weapons to the combat zone to launch strikes on our territory and create problems for us, why don’t we have the right to supply weapons of the same type to some regions of the world where they can be used to launch strikes on sensitive facilities of the countries that do it to Russia?”

Adding to this dangerous mix, President Biden has also approved the notorious Azov Battalion to use U.S.-provided weaponry. This battalion, infamous for its neo-Nazi roots, has been a central figure in Russian propaganda against Ukraine’s government. Biden’s support for such a group not only undermines our moral standing but also hands Putin ammunition to justify his aggressive actions.

President Biden’s approval of Ukraine to use American missiles to strike Russia and his support for the controversial Azov Battalion reflects a dangerous softness on national security. These decisions have not only emboldened our adversaries but also jeopardized global stability. It’s time for a leader who prioritizes America’s safety and stands firm against threats to our homeland. Biden’s actions are not just a lapse in judgment—they are a direct threat to our nation’s security.
