Which Multi-Tool Is Better For SHTF – Leatherman or Swiss Army Knives?


For years, Boy Scouts, survivalists, preppers, and more have been using Swiss Army Knives to better their survival/outdoor experience. These little tools are surprisingly useful, providing a large variety of tools such as a pocket blade, screwdriver, can opener, pair of scissors, corkscrew, and more.

Up until the year 1983, it felt like Swiss Army Knives were ruling the multi-tool market. However, that fateful year would mark the end to Swiss’s rule over the market. That’s because that very year Leatherman began producing its own multi-tools for survival and general use.

Leatherman began taking the multi-tool market by storm, offering a range of products that had the capacity to function as 19 tools in one. Not to mention, they’ve strategically made their products to fit a variety of circumstances and situations. So, whether you’re needing one for emergency prep, tactical use, DIY projects, everyday use, or outdoor/survival scenarios, there’s a Leatherman out there to fit the bill.

Now this is all well and good, but it leaves the consumer with just one question when utilizing disaster preparedness…

Migrant Invaders Brazenly Charge at Swimmers in Speedboat


In a blatant affront to American sovereignty, a dozen illegal immigrants executed a dangerous and illegal invasion of our shores, arriving at a California beach via speedboat with reckless disregard for the safety of Americans enjoying their leisure time. One surfer narrowly escaped harm as the vessel tore through the water at high speeds, a clear symbol of the contempt these lawbreakers hold for our laws and our people.

This latest episode in Carlsbad, a mere 30 miles north of San Diego, is a chilling reminder of the organized lawlessness that is being orchestrated across our borders. Once ashore, these illegal entrants scurried toward luxury vehicles, suggesting a level of premeditation and support that borders on an invasion facilitated by criminal networks.

Compounding the audacity of this episode was the abject failure of local law enforcement to respond, leaving law-abiding citizens to fend for themselves. Such incidents underscore a terrifying erosion of law and order, signaling to criminals everywhere that our borders are open for exploitation.

This incident is not an anomaly but a stark representation of a broader crisis fueled by a border policy that might as well hang a welcome sign for criminals and opportunists. The alarming influx of illegal crossings, particularly in the San Diego sector—where nearly 7,000 breaches were reported last week alone—is a direct result of deliberate inaction and misguided policies that invite chaos and endanger American lives.

The economic and social strain this unchecked immigration inflicts on our communities is unsustainable. The closure of local migrant shelters, once hemorrhaging millions of taxpayer dollars monthly, is a testament to the fiscal burden imposed by these continuous waves of illegal entrants. This burden has now shifted to our airports and bus stations, turning them into makeshift shelters and degrading the quality of life for residents and tourists alike.

It is evident that our current administration lacks the will to address this crisis effectively. The projected figures are a dire warning: with over 8 million people potentially on our streets, including two million with criminal intentions, the situation is nothing short of a national emergency.

Congress must act with urgency to secure our borders and overhaul an immigration system that has been exploited far too long. We need robust enforcement of our immigration laws, substantial penalties for those who violate them, and an end to policies that encourage illegal entry into our country. The time for tolerance of this disorder is over. The safety, security, and sovereignty of the United States must be enforced rigorously and without apology. We must protect American citizens and the integrity of our nation.

ASTONISHING: Israel Stops 99 Percent of Missile Attacks


Amidst the recent turmoil caused by Iran’s aggressive assault on Israel, there’s a beacon of hope shining brightly—the resolute defense put forth by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), which successfully thwarted a staggering 99% of the incoming drones and missiles launched by Iran. This remarkable feat stands as a testament to Israel’s unwavering commitment to protecting its citizens and maintaining regional stability in the face of relentless aggression from Iran and its terrorist proxy, Hezbollah.

Iran’s brazen attack, employing over 300 drones, cruise missiles, and ballistic missiles, aimed to sow chaos and terror in Israeli territory. However, Israel’s formidable defense capabilities, coupled with the invaluable support of allies like the United States, the U.K., and Jordan, ensured that the overwhelming majority of these threats were neutralized before any harm could be inflicted.

In a statement, IDF Spokesman Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari rightfully hailed this achievement as a significant strategic victory—one that showcases Israel’s resilience, technological prowess, and unwavering determination to defend its borders and its people against hostile forces.

What’s particularly heartening amidst this turbulent time is not just the successful interception of Iran’s aggressive projectiles, but also the minimal impact they had on Israeli soil. Despite Iran’s malicious intentions to inflict harm on Israeli territory and military infrastructure, the IDF’s steadfast defense prevented any significant damage or casualties, ensuring the safety and security of Israeli citizens.

This remarkable display of resilience and strength is a testament to Israel’s unwavering commitment to protect its people and maintain peace in the region. It also sends a powerful message to Iran and its proxies that their attempts to sow chaos and terror will be met with swift and decisive action.

As Israel continues to stand firm against the forces of aggression and terror, it is imperative for the international community to rally behind Israel and condemn Iran’s hostile actions. The successful interception of Iran’s drones and missiles serves as a powerful reminder of Israel’s unwavering determination to defend its sovereignty and safeguard the safety and security of its citizens.

Biden Regime Enabled Iran, Hezbollah Attack on Israel


In the aftermath of Iran’s reprehensible assault on Israel, orchestrated directly by its military forces and not through its proxy Hezbollah, the Biden administration’s failure to renew expiring sanctions against Iran at the United Nations is not just negligent—it’s complicit. By allowing these sanctions to lapse, the Biden administration effectively paved the way for Iran’s brazen act of aggression, emboldening Tehran and signaling to the world that it is willing to turn a blind eye to Iran’s malevolent ambitions.

The recent massacre of over 1,200 innocent people in Israel, coupled with Iran’s direct missile attack on Israeli territory, serves as a grim reminder of the consequences of appeasement and inaction in the face of evil. Iran, the foremost state sponsor of terrorism, has been given free rein to sow chaos and destruction across the Middle East, thanks in part to the Biden administration’s misguided policies and lack of resolve.

Let’s be clear: Iran’s actions are not isolated incidents but part of a broader pattern of aggression and subversion. Its Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), a designated terrorist organization by the United States, continues to operate with impunity, thanks to the Biden administration’s reluctance to confront Iran head-on.

The recent onslaught of over 300 drones and missiles launched directly by the Iranian military towards Israeli territory is a direct consequence of the Biden administration’s failure to take decisive action against Iran’s ballistic missile and drone programs. While Israel’s defense forces valiantly intercepted the vast majority of the incoming threats, the fact remains that these attacks could have been prevented if the Biden administration had shown the courage to stand up to Iran.

Moreover, the expiration of sanctions against Iran is not just a missed opportunity—it’s a damning indictment of the Biden administration’s foreign policy priorities. By prioritizing appeasement over accountability, the Biden administration has emboldened Iran and its proxies, allowing them to threaten the stability and security of the entire region.

Let’s not forget Hezbollah, Iran’s primary proxy and puppet, which is complicit in these heinous acts. Hezbollah serves as Tehran’s willing tool for spreading terror and chaos throughout the region, with its bloody fingerprints evident in conflicts from Lebanon to Syria and beyond.

In the face of Iran’s relentless aggression, Israel has once again borne the brunt of the violence. Yet, despite facing existential threats on multiple fronts, Israel remains steadfast in its commitment to defending its people and preserving peace in the face of adversity.

It is time for the international community to hold the Biden administration accountable for its failures and demand decisive action against Iran and its proxies. The United Nations Security Council must act swiftly to renew sanctions against Iran and cripple its ability to sow chaos and destruction.

In conclusion, the Biden administration’s inaction and appeasement have only emboldened Iran and its proxies, enabling them to carry out acts of terror and aggression with impunity. Now is the time for the world to stand in solidarity with Israel and confront the forces of darkness and tyranny threatening to engulf the region.
