Trump says US won’t protect Germany as it ‘pays Russia billions for energy’ in 1st tweet after Pentagon announces troop withdrawal

“Germany pays Russia billions of dollars a year for Energy, and we are supposed to protect Germany from Russia. What’s that all about?”Trump tweeted, shortly after Defense Secretary Mark Esper said the US would move out some 11,900 US soldiers from Germany, as opposed to the initial plan to withdraw some 9,500 personnel.

Trump has also cited the long-running row over NATO contributions, accusing Germany of failing to fork out its fair share of the costs for the military alliance.

“Also, Germany is very…

Vacuum Sealer Review – The Foodsaver V4400

I think everyone reading this article agrees that food storage is absolutely critical in any preparedness plan – particularly with both the WUFlu crisis and low level Leftist insurgency that we see going on right now. Everyone’s pantry should have a healthy mix of long term staples (rice, beans, etc), canned goods, and long term freeze-dried goods. Two of the first purchases I made when I moved into my own place was a chest freezer and a vacuum sealer. I chose the Foodsaver V4400 when I made my purchase, and I could not be happier.

For starters, this thing gets used at least once a week to keep food fresh. We have used it to marinate chicken, freeze steaks for later in the month after a sale, and even to seal items destined for underground caches. After the WuFlu hit, these things were flying off Amazon as people rushed to get long term food storage devices. As you see below, we meal prepped for several days and used the vacuum sealer to keep the delicious Lemon Pepper Chicken fresh while we ate through other food. This product is incredibly intuitive to use, and pretty much does everything automatically: just choose the setting, pick your bag type, and go to town!

It has the ability to use both bags with a valve as illustrated above (they have a variety of sizes like 1-Quart and 1-Gallon) as well as create bags from a roll, which is a life saver when you have particularly large items (like the steak you see below). However, you need to pay attention when using the bag roll and follow the instructions listed. If you do not insert the open end fully and in the correct position, it may not automatically seal it.

As mentioned above, we managed to get a great deal on a bunch of steaks, but we wanted to spread them out over the next couple of months. The solution? Vacuum sealing! We used the roll bags since the steaks were quite large. We vacuum sealed one with marinade already on it, and the rest we did plain. The bags are open on either end, so you cut the bag to the length you need (leaving at least 4 inches at the top). You seal one end, put your item into the bag, pick your moist/dry setting, and seal the other end.

From there, they were dropped into the chest freezer and marked on our log book (which inventories what goes in, when it went in, and the listed expiration date) and they are now ready for when we want to have some steak and a nice Cabernet Sauvignon on a Saturday night while listening to some Outlaw country on SiriusXM. If you buy the Foodsaver V4400, I highly recommend stocking a lot of bags. One of the things I noticed during the WuFlu was that things like ZiplocksMason Jars and Food-Grade Buckets (and, surprisingly, Gamma Lids) were nowhere to be found as people sucked them up to store food long term. Don’t be left wishing you had them on hand – they are relatively inexpensive and will be standing ready the next time there is a run on food. PDF Button

NFACs Militia Leader Doesnt Know How an AR Works

6 hours, 56 minutes ago

No.  The 5.56mm round will not “knock yo’ bitch ass down.”

No.  That’s not a bullpup.

No.  That’s not a shorty.  It looks to me like a 20″ barrel, common on earlier AR platforms.

No.  Guns don’t “go off” every day of basic training with people getting killed.

No.  The AR platform isn’t that reckless and dangerous.  Eugene Stoner was a genius, and he objects to your stupidity.

No.  The BCG moving forward is by design to chamber a round – it does not cause a round to discharge.

Yes.  This NFAC leader is an imbecile.



  1. On July 30, 2020 at 11:00 am, Bad_Brad said:That guy was all over InstaGram essentially claiming when you hit your bolt catch release and your AR goes into battery it discharges. That wasn’t the shocking part. The shocking part was the amount of people, some well known, that agreed with his dumb Jimmy Walker ass. Dynomyte.
  2. On July 30, 2020 at 11:12 am, Fred said:The vid host claims “accidental discharge” is a thing. Stop that.But I should note that only police have “accidental discharges” when their guns “go off.” No other living thing on earth can have this happen. They are very special in that regard.In order to lead a militia you don’t have to be a super high speed operator. You can have firearms trainers, tactics personnel, wilderness, survival, food, medical etc. If he was smart, he would have deferred to his weapons officer, but he’s not smart and they aren’t a real militia or he would have tapped the expert in the subject field at hand to provide instruction in a particular point. The host is incorrect about militia leaders being the top operator operating operationally in operations being a requirement, although truly, experience does help. YMMV.The host isn’t really helping when he wrongly defines a mis-fire, twice.The NFAC “leader” has to be a fed plant. There is no other explanation I can come up with. There is only so much Bloomberg Mommy Demands Action misinformation that you can put in one video. He better not cross his handlers or they will JFK/MLK him so fast everybody will think he had an AR “accidental discharge, which he claims happens every day.
  3. On July 30, 2020 at 11:42 am, Reader said:Is that a “neo-skunk” hairdo?Makes me think if the John Candy comedy “The Great Outdoors”
  4. On July 30, 2020 at 11:44 am, Reader said:For the record, I like the hosts video. Just reminded me of a great comedy before those weren’t made anymore.
  5. On July 30, 2020 at 11:48 am, Archer said:How long until he claims the “AR-15” designation is shorthand for “Accidental Removal of 15 heads” per day in basic training?How long before he actually plays the operational operator operating in operational operations, going into “battle” with his bolt open (because that’s how the rifle is “ready”), tries to pull the trigger to fire, and nothing happens?How long before he inserts his magazine backwards, or tries to “rock” it in because that’s how AKs (heh, “Accidentally Killed – 47 persons” per day) work?NFAC supposedly stands for “Not F@#$ing Around Coalition”, but their “leader” shows the name to be a lie. I’m having a hard time taking them seriously, no matter how many members they claim to have. (And I suspect a plurality of those “members” are actually undercover FBI agents or informants keeping an eye on their “activities”.)When he said the AR has a kick that will “knock you down”, that just tells me that he’s never fired it. It doesn’t matter, then, when he got it, how long he’s had it, or how many times he’s fingered the trigger. If he’s never actually fired it, he’s still a n00b.$10 says it’s not even sighted in.
  6. On July 30, 2020 at 11:57 am, (((Doc B))) said:Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake. Let Tyrone and shaniqua keep up their little game.
  7. On July 30, 2020 at 12:16 pm, Matt Bracken said:His now proven idiocy also proves something else: he is capable of charming and seducing a lot of folks who are even stupider than he is.
  8. On July 30, 2020 at 12:30 pm, Brock Townsend said:Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.Amen.
  9. On July 30, 2020 at 12:47 pm, Chad C. Mulligan said:“Educated” in a public school, no doubt. Aged-out after fifth grade,
  10. On July 30, 2020 at 12:55 pm, Egon Potts said:RE: Matt BrackenRight you are an considering his target demographic have an average IQ of 85 (that’s not a joke or a misprint) he has the meaty part of the bell curve to choose from.
  11. On July 30, 2020 at 1:18 pm, DTG said:Humor, with video to boot!
  12. On July 30, 2020 at 1:48 pm, Sanders said:Why do so many on “our side” find it imperative on themselves to “educate” those on “their side”?Just keep your mouth shut and enjoy the show, because steep learning curves are just around the corner.
  13. On July 30, 2020 at 2:11 pm, G said:HE IS A FED.
    nfac is the same psyop thats been played over and over.
  14. On July 30, 2020 at 3:14 pm, Arthur Sido said:For that particular demographic, he is probably somewhat above average in intelligence.But yes, let them wallow in their ignorance. Teaching them to be more capable in handling firearms will just increase the murder rate.
  15. On July 30, 2020 at 3:16 pm, Herschel Smith said:Folks,They’re going to learn nothing from this post. First, they won’t read it, second, you can’t correct arrogance, an unteachable spirit and ignorance with a single post.Just enjoy the show.
  16. On July 30, 2020 at 3:25 pm, Greek01 said:Professionals are predictable. It’s the amateurs that concern me.
    One idiot has an ND (NEGLIGENT discharge not – accidental discharge), then they think someone is shooting at them. Cyclical result.
    Don’t say anything especially where they are wrong. Eventually they may take themselves out.
    Which begs my next question. I thought you are not supposed to be locked and loaded during a protest. Or is this just another matter where LEO look the other way ?

    -Hanlon’s Razor.
    I don’t think you have to be a federale to be stupid, but it probably doesn’t hurt. This guy looks like he achieved his level of genius naturally.If he really was in the Army, it looks like he didn’t learn much from his training, despite the Army’s method of beating simple lessons into your head over and over. It’s a style that was developed specifically for guys like him.If he is a fed, he’s the best moron magnet I ever saw. Also, it’s nice to know minority gun owners are scrutinized and baited as much as the white ones.
  18. On July 30, 2020 at 4:15 pm, Herschel Smith said:@Curious,If it had been Marine Corps, he would have been sent to the “room of pain.” The problem would have been fixed immediately.

    With that said, what level of government oppression is the correct amount?
    Libertarians still want government.
    They just want tyranny lite.
    ALL government is tyranny.
    Government means “to steer the mind”.
    Mind control is the worst form of tyranny regardless of its political flavor.
    1. Grill Nat Shepherdsays:“ALL Government is Tyranny.”
      I would say pretty much ALL Government morphs into Tyranny because the people LET IT.
      Without a shared moral and ethical compass as well as CONSEQUENCES for poor impulse control, everything devolves into a metaphorical Camden.

      1. DrDogsays:“I would say pretty much ALL Government morphs into Tyranny because the people LET IT.”Different viewpoint: Why is a pro-baller better than a weekend warrior that hacks at it? PRACTICE. Same holds true in politics. A bunch of voters every 2 years are unlikely to defeat a Pol who has been in the game 100% of the time for 30 years.

    Small communities (such as mine) things are very simple: local problems are worked out locally (a kind of you piss on your side of the fence and I’ll piss on mine mentality) and for those few who do not want to ‘work things out’ life becomes very difficult. We are ‘diverse’ here (one black family, a few Hispanics, a few ‘native Americans’ and the rest (dare I say it?) white. About 70 total full time ……. if things ‘fester’ here it becomes very noticeable quickly and dealt with unlike the bigger communities around the nation.
    Not making a case for rural life but for the life of me, I can not understand why a reasonable person would wish to live in larger areas especially the notable shit holes displayed in the daily/nightly news. Hell, maybe it’s just my ‘white privilege’ talking here …..

  4. Bonaventuresays:From the comments to one of the linked articles:It’s worth pointing out that described abstractly, Zionism and Nazism are ideologically very similar. Both are essentially exaggerations of Nineteenth century European racial nationalism, both posit a more or less imaginary history to justify their territorial claims, both ignore the rights of all others in favor of their chosen group, both openly worship violence, and both are contemptuous of both legal and moral constraints.Holy cow. That describes to a “T” all the Nazi lovers who post their incessant garbage here. As Dirk pointed out something similar the other day, and the comment above captures it even more: Said Nazi lovers are nothing more than a different side of the same (((coin))).

  1. DWEEZIL THE WEASELsays:Good essay. But, Mr. Williams is preaching to the choir. And like a lot of ivory tower academics on both sides of the aisle, no one is listening. The Negroes are rioting, looting, murdering one another, and murdering innocent whites. The whites are prepping, training, waking up, moving from Blue Hives, and getting ready for CW II. Professor Williams needs to put down the pen, get his butt to Thunder Ranch or Gunsite, and prepare to defend himself and his loved ones. Bleib ubrig.
    1. m rappsays:Please ! not attacking you but see the website North Idaho off grid / north Idaho exposed…….
      read what Berglander wrote ……and you live right in the middle of it here………..the only people moving out ARE the enemy ! our communities have been inundated with these weak liberal sociopaths that want “their freedom” with out earning it and they do not want to be inconvenienced with the truth. I left Bozeman 30 years ago as even then the city government was mostly Californians, by 2000 the census showed the city population was nearly 70% out of staters and Gallatin county was over 50% out of staters……… the town is a liberal shithole gay parades gun laws and big box stores………………….……………………..YIPPEE KI YAY MOTHER FUCKERS………………………………………………………………..
      1. DWEEZIL THE WEASELsays:Mr. m rapp: Agreed. Thanks for responding. My only observation is I do not have enough ammo. My list is growing simply because all of the geriatric Marxists and Red-Diaper-Doper-Babies just cannot help themselves and constantly write LTE’s. I’m making the lists and checking them twice. Bleib ubrig.
    2. Jimsays:“… The whites are prepping, training, waking up, moving from Blue Hives, and getting ready for CW II. …”
      At least, the ones who aren’t marching with BLM/etc, are.

  5. Seansays:Kind of amazing, watching civilized men and women talk about the rampaging hordes of barbarians wrecking the place, while advocating for nothing, doing nothing, leading nothing. Just the same old, same old, “This is bad/wrong/destructive/degenerate”. Oh, and”it should stop”. That’ll teach em’. I can see where this is going. The reaction will set in, and the reaction being late to the battle field will over-do it, and itself become what it seeks to prevent. Seeking out and killing monsters often involves monstrous behavior, which can become habit. Maybe this is what our soothsayers on the Right foresee, maybe not. Maybe we’re just in for a hell of a ride, with a fucked-up outcome. Anyway, my only problem ain’t the enemy. It’s also all the unarmed, clueless children running in circles and screaming inside the wire. Reminds me of when my Dad was about to whup my seven-year-old-ass for doing something wrong. Mom tried to intervene with”Oh, he doesn’t know he was doing anything wrong!”. Dad replies, as he lays into the razor strop routine, ” Yeah, but he’ll know when I’m finished!”. Loved my Dad, and he was one of the best teachers I ever had. Soon the children will leave the stage to the adults.

  4. Swami Rabbitimasays:There are no obsolete weapons – only obsolete tactics. – Mike Vanderboegh
    1. 1stRulesays:Smoothbore matchlock musket might be obsolete
      1. Beanssays:Nope. No rifling marks, no cartridge marks, make a sabot round and fire a sub-caliber .30 caliber modern round or a metal dart or a buck-and-ball for close range. You can use it to fire a spigot-mortar like round (explosive round on a stick where the stick goes into the barrel.)No firearm is obsolete. Not even a handegonne. 10″ barrel firing a 1″ ball? Close up, to 30′, will penetrate modern body armor. Or medieval and renaissance body armor (unless it’s properly proofed.) I’ve seen it. Bronze cast handegonne from 3o’ away, right through a Level III+. And a car. And cinderblock…A wheel-lock cavalry pistol is an elegant addition to any man’s accoutrements.Hey, a culhorn mortar is a useful bomb chucker. And that’s basically old school banging.Even a petard (Metal pot full of black powder, metal pot nailed to a board, board nailed to a door, light fuse, run, I say RUN away, boom, door opened) is still a viable anti door or anti-vehicle weapon, being an early semi-shaped charge device.A Fougasse (large barrel or pot full of gas or naptha or oil with an explosive charge in the bottom) is still a good way to disperse flaming liquids or semi-liquids or semi-solids all over an area.So are spar torpedoes, basically outdated since the Whitehead powered torpedo. An inelegant way to place an explosive charge at x distance from your vehicle with the hopes of not damaging your vehicle.Black powder is still a good explosive, a decent propellant and fun to play with (safely, of course.)
  5. Pepe the Frogsays:Speaking hypothetically and for entertainment purposes only, making a stamped sheet metal tube to shoot a small diameter finned projectile that-a-way using blackpowder is the easy part.As the one-eyed, one-handed old chemist says, it’s easy to make something that’ll go BOOM. The trick is making something that won’t go BOOM until you want it to.
