Wintertime Survival Tips That Are Crazy & Useful

As most of you know, it’s officially winter on Dec 21st.  Seems like the perfect time to learn wintertime survival tips.  A little more than a week and we’ll be into the coldest season of the year.

Part of the reason I first got into prepping was because of my worries about wintertime disasters.

See, I hated the idea of my car getting stuck in a snowstorm and becoming my icy tomb.

I’ve also lived through some momentary power outages at my house which made me think twice about not having some prep items with me.

And one of my biggest fears, the one that made me shiver in July?

I feared what would happen in a total societal meltdown during the winter months. Images of people freezing in bread lines that stretched for miles during January made be go pale with fright.

That’s why I started prepping and it’s why I’m writing to you right now. 

In the next few seconds,  I’ll show you unusual but useful wintertime survival tips

Now I could write an entire book on the subject, but these unique tips aren’t usually covered by other people.

Fortunately, if you start doing this stuff now it’ll actually help you get prepared for a summertime crisis too. So take a look at some of these survival tips and see which ones you can start using today

Unexpected Wintertime Survival Tips

Take a Vitamin D Supplement

You’ve probably heard your doctor tell you about the importance of vitamin D. What you might not realize is how important it is for survival.

What you might not know is your body actively converts sunlight into vitamin D. During the winter months the sun’s rays are much weaker than they are in the summer. Because the winter sun’s rays are so much weaker, it means you become deficient in this essential nutrient very quickly

That’s why doctors are always recommending Americans taking vitamin D supplements.

Now you’re probably wondering why this matters for survival.

There are two reasons actually. The first is vitamin D is essential for strong bones. Because of how icy winter weather can be, falls resulting in broken bones are much more common in the winter. Taking vitamin D helps create strong bones which will help prevent injuries when you fall.

The second reason is because you need vitamin D for mental health.

You’ve probably heard of winter time blues. These blues are the result of a lack of vitamin D. When you take vitamin D as a supplement it lifts your mood and literally makes you happier.

Truth is you need a healthy mind if you want to outlast a crisis. That’s why survival experts always talk about increasing morale. If you’re down in the dumps it can quickly turn fatal. Especially in the winter.

Once you start taking vitamin D you probably shouldn’t stop either. Unless you get tons of sunshine spring through fall it’s one of the few vitamins you should take all the time. This is one of those wintertime survival tips that’s perfect for the summer too.

Always Have Extra Socks On Hand

I like to help volunteer  with the homeless. It helps me know I’m doing my part to make this world a better place. Plus I know a lot of them are veterans with mental issues and they desperately need the attention.

You learn a lot by working with the homeless.

And my #1 winter survival lesson learned from them is understanding how important socks are. Whenever I ask what they need almost all of them ask for more socks.  When it’s cold outside they stuff their bags full of them.

Considering what homeless people know about living on the streets I think you should follow their lead. Only for you, you’ll find even more uses for them. 

Let me show you a few reasons why socks are added to my wintertime survival tips blog post. 

    • Keep tube socks in your car. You can place them on windshield wipers at night to prevent them from getting frozen
    • Keep a pair in your glove box. You never know when you might need to push your car in the snow. Extra socks wrapped around your shoes will give you extra grip to get out. This is also true if you just need some for walking on icy surfaces.
    • Keep them in a bag or coat pocket. Not only are socks great for feet, they’re perfect for hands too. If you’re ever in need a pair of socks on your hands or over gloves will keep your fingers nice and warm
    • Turn them into a mini survival-kit.  You can use socks to carry all kinds of survival gear.  Place items like knives, hand warmers, pocket stoves and fuel, water filtration tabs and more in a sock. Then tie them off at the top so your gear is all together in one place.
    • Cut the toes off: If you want to stay extra warm you can cut the toes off socks to keep your arms extra warm. This is a classic survival tip that’s long forgotten.

Be Ready To Pitch A Tent

I’m sure most of you reading this don’t like the idea of winter and camping in the same sentence. If you’re the kind of person who likes to camp in the winter, well you might be a glutton for punishment.

Suffice to say if you want to be really prepared for a winter time crisis I recommend getting camping gear for the winter. Yes, even a tent. Consider this one of the more crucial wintertime survival tips.

The reason I recommend this is because if the power ever goes out you can use all that gear to better survive a winter time crisis.

Think about it. If all you have in your house right now are a few blankets to keep warm during a wintertime power outage you’re asking for trouble.

This is why it pays to have camping items stored in your car or at home.

I recommend having:

  • A sleeping bag rated for low temps 0-20 degrees
  • A tent
  • An emergency survival blanket
  • A week’s worth of easy-make survival food
  • A portable stove with plenty of fuel
  • A knife or a multitool
  • Handwarmers of some sort
  • A portable power pack to jump a car and electronics
  • A water filter or water purification device

Of course, you can add more, but these tools will be perfect for winter and summer weather.

Ideally, you’d keep them in a small backpack. That way you could transport it from the trunk of your car into your home any time you want.

I hope you learned a few things reading about these wintertime survival tips. I know this winter’s going to be cold, so make sure to get ready now.

P.S. One of the easiest ways to get prepped for winter is getting emergency survival blankets. My buddy accidentally ordered more than he can fit in his warehouse and is giving some away for free. Get your free one today for your car or bug out bag.

Hunter Biden Caught RED HANDED Lying Under Oath

washington-dc-usa-02282024-hunter-biden

House Republicans have detonated a political bombshell, exposing the brazen corruption and arrogance of the Biden family. They have unveiled indisputable evidence proving that Hunter Biden lied under oath multiple times during his congressional deposition earlier this year. This scandal epitomizes the Biden Administration’s systemic corruption and disregard for the rule of law.

The House Ways & Means Committee convened a crucial session on Wednesday to discuss documents protected under IRS code 6103, a section of the tax code designed to keep sensitive information confidential. The committee’s decision to release this material, despite the severe legal ramifications, underscores the gravity and urgency of the situation.

“Hunter Biden has once again demonstrated his belief that there are two systems of justice in this country – one for his privileged family and one for everyone else,” House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith thundered to Fox News Digital. “Not only did Hunter Biden brazenly refuse to comply with his initial subpoena until threatened with criminal contempt, but he also had the audacity to lie before Congress. This investigation and the documents released today are not about a personal vendetta against Hunter Biden; they are about ensuring the equal application of the law in a system that his family seems to believe they are above.”

Smith revealed that the documents show Hunter Biden lied at least three times during his deposition. “Lying during sworn testimony is a felony offense that the Department of Justice has prosecuted numerous individuals for in recent years, and the American people demand the same accountability for the son of the President of the United States,” Smith declared. “Hunter Biden’s lies under oath and obstruction of a congressional investigation into his family’s blatant corruption cast a shadow over his entire testimony. The newly released evidence confirms, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the only witnesses who can be trusted to tell the truth in this investigation are the IRS whistleblowers.”

The committee asserts that Hunter Biden mischaracterized his role at his firm, Rosemont Seneca, and actually controlled bank accounts he denied having under oath. Emails between Hunter Biden and his former associate Devon Archer show he helped a man named Miguel Aleman with visa documents, directly contradicting his testimony. Furthermore, WhatsApp records reveal that Hunter Biden only spoke with one Zhao — Henry Zhao of Chinese energy firm CEFC — debunking his claim of a mistaken identity due to intoxication.

In one explosive WhatsApp message, Hunter Biden blatantly leveraged his father’s position, telling a Chinese business associate from CEFC that he and his father would ensure “you will regret not following my direction.” Hunter Biden demanded a $10 million wire for his joint venture with CEFC, SinoHawk Holdings.

“I am sitting here with my father, and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled,” Hunter Biden told Henry Zhao, the director of Chinese asset management firm Harvest Fund Management. “And, Z, if I get a call or text from anyone involved in this other than you, Zhang, or the chairman, I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge, you will regret not following my direction.” Zhao responded, “CEFC is willing to cooperate with the family.”

Hunter Biden has been charged in two separate jurisdictions stemming from Special Counsel David Weiss’ years-long investigation into him. He pleaded not guilty to federal gun charges in U.S. District Court for Delaware and federal tax charges in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. The charges include making false statements during the purchase of a firearm, related to information required to be kept by a licensed firearm dealer, and possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance.

IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler approached Congress, alleging that prosecutorial decisions in the federal investigation into the president’s son were influenced by politics. They claimed Weiss allowed the statute of limitations to expire for tax charges against Hunter Biden from 2014 and 2015 in D.C., and Hunter Biden should have been charged with tax evasion for 2014 and for filing false tax returns for 2018 and 2019, particularly concerning income from Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings. Fox News Digital reported in December 2020 that Hunter Biden failed to report “approximately $400,000” in income from his position on Burisma’s board in 2014.

The American public is fed up with a system rigged in favor of the powerful and well-connected. This is a direct assault on the integrity of our justice system. The time for accountability is now. Hunter Biden and his family’s blatant disregard for the law cannot be tolerated any longer. The American people demand justice.

Biden’s Reckless Election Stunt: Draining Strategic Reserves to Lower Gas Prices

male-worker-inspection-record-drum-oil

In a desperate and ill-advised move, the Biden administration announced on Tuesday that it is releasing 1 million barrels of gasoline from a Northeast reserve established after Superstorm Sandy, ostensibly to lower prices at the pump this summer. This blatant attempt to manipulate gas prices ahead of the election underscores the administration’s willingness to jeopardize national security for political gain.

The gasoline will be sold from storage sites in New Jersey and Maine in increments of 100,000 barrels, creating a competitive bidding process to ensure it reaches local retailers ahead of the July 4 holiday. The Energy Department claims this will help “lower costs for American families and consumers,” but the real intention is clear: to curry favor with voters by artificially lowering gas prices.

The release follows a congressional mandate to sell off the 10-year-old Northeast reserve and close it. This reserve, established under President Obama, has never been used and costs about $19 million a year to maintain. Its sale, which provides only minimal relief during a severe shortage, highlights the administration’s short-sightedness and disregard for strategic planning.

Gasoline prices average about $3.60 per gallon nationwide, up 6 cents from a year ago, according to AAA. Tapping into the gasoline reserves is one of the few actions a president can take to control inflation, a major election year liability for the party in power.

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm stated that the Biden administration is “laser-focused on lowering prices at the pump for American families.” However, this short-term solution ignores the primary purpose of strategic reserves: to provide emergency relief in times of severe national crises, not to manipulate market prices for political benefit.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre touted this release as part of Biden’s efforts to lower gas and energy costs, including historic releases from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) and investments in clean energy. Yet, Biden’s previous decision to drain the SPR in 2022, following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, already pushed the stockpile to perilously low levels not seen since the 1980s. This reckless depletion of a critical national security asset for short-term political gain drew sharp criticism from Republicans.

Despite attempts to refill the SPR, it still stands at over 367 million barrels, significantly lower than pre-Russia-Ukraine war levels. This makes the U.S. vulnerable in the event of a true energy emergency, as the SPR is intended to be the nation’s emergency oil supply, not a tool for electioneering.

The release of the 42-million-gallon Northeast reserve, which must be transferred or delivered by June 30, is a misguided strategy that offers minimal impact on gasoline prices nationally. As analyst Patrick De Haan from GasBuddy points out, the reserve amounts to just 2.7 hours of total U.S. gasoline consumption, providing negligible relief.

This ill-conceived plan not only undermines the strategic purpose of the reserve but also sets a dangerous precedent of using emergency resources for political maneuvering. Biden’s actions highlight a disturbing trend of prioritizing political optics over national security and long-term stability.

Biden Authorized “Deadly Force” In Mar-a-Lago Raid

bedminster-nj-august-14-2022-demonstrators

In an alarming display of federal overreach and political maneuvering, it has been revealed that Joe Biden’s administration was prepared to have his main political rival, Donald Trump, and his family killed as part of a dramatic publicity stunt.

On Tuesday, Judge Aileen Cannon unsealed a series of motions related to Jack Smith’s controversial classified documents case against Trump. Among the shocking revelations was the fact that Biden’s FBI authorized the use of deadly force during their raid on Mar-a-Lago in August 2022.

This brazen action by armed FBI agents, ready to confront Trump, demonstrates the extreme lengths to which Biden’s administration is willing to go. The filing stated: “Should FPOTUS [Trump] arrive at MAL [Mar-a-Lago], FBI MM EM and OSCs will be prepared to engage with FPOTUS and USSS Security Team.” Furthermore, it added, “Should USSS provide resistance or interfere with FBI timeline or accesses, FBI MM EM will engage with [redacted] and [redacted] will engage with USSS POC’s per existing liaison relationships.”

A chilling screenshot of the deadly force instructions outlined the conditions under which DOJ law enforcement officers could use deadly force: only when necessary, when the officer has a reasonable belief that the subject poses an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury.

This unprecedented move comes after Biden paved the way for his Justice Department to arrest his political opponent by retroactively revoking Trump’s executive privilege. This revocation facilitated the subpoenaing of Trump, which in turn allowed the Justice Department to charge him with federal crimes.

Following the subpoena, federal agents arrived at Mar-a-Lago, retrieving documents and instructing the former president to add an extra lock to his storage locker. However, two months later, the FBI conducted a full-scale raid on Mar-a-Lago, ransacking Trump’s belongings without allowing his lawyers to be present.

The situation escalated when, in November 2022, Jack Smith was appointed special counsel to investigate the documents at Trump’s Florida residence. By June 2023, Trump faced an indictment on 37 counts related to Smith’s classified documents case, including charges of willful retention, conspiracy to obstruct justice, and making false statements.

This entire episode underscores the alarming extent of Biden’s politicization of the Justice Department and the dangerous precedent it sets for using federal power to target political opponents.
