JWR’s Recommendations of the Week:

Here are JWR’s Recommendations of the Week for various media and tools of interest to SurvivalBlog readers. This week the focus is on comfort foods for food storage. Let’s face it: TEOTWAWKI will be very stressful. So plan ahead to be able to relieve some of that stress. Have long term storage comfort foods on hand, or be ready to make comfort food recipes with the foods you grow and store. (See the Books, Instructional Videos, and Gear & Grub section.)

Reader Jim L. suggested the novel End Game, by David Baldacci.  It is part of his Will Robie series. It is noteworthy that Baldacci is known for weaving some useful tradecraft into his fictional storylines.


Movies & Television:

I recently watched the 8-episode Impossible Peace documentary series. This series describes the period between WWI and WWII. It is available for free streaming for those with Amazon Prime. This was produced in England so it has a noticeable Fabian Socialist slanted viewpoint. And many of the historians/commentators are enthusiastic apologists for both Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the failed League of Nations. But it is fascinating, nonetheless.

  1. I would like to add to your list of books to read;
    That Every Man Be Armed – Stephen P. Halbrook – History of the 2nd Amendment from Roman/Grecian times forward
    America Alone- The End Of America As We Know It – Mark Steyn – lays out what’s happening throughout the world and the insane march towards Islamification. A funny, but serious read and filled with pertinent information.

  2. A couple books and a DVD series: Author: Dr. Edwin Vieira;
    Pieces of Eight,
    The Crashmakers,
    Constitutional Homeland Security,
    Three Rights,
    Thirteen Words,
    How to Dethrone the Imperial Judiciary;
    DVD – The Purse and the Sword: Imminent Dangers of the U.S. Economic and Homeland Security Policies (2010).

  3. What a bounty today.

    1. Paleo Comfort Foods: Homestyle Cooking for a Gluten-Free Kitchen followed by Mountain House Apple Crisp. Now we’re talking.

    2. The Waltons. Wholesome stories about real people.

    3. The novel, End Game. If you pick it up, note about a third of the way through our heroes get a tour of a decommissioned missile silo turned into a high-end SHTF retreat for billionaires. Insightful commentary for the rest of us regarding the need for the residents to work together.

    Carry on

  4. This End Game (Will Robie Series Book 5) was a crappy super politcally correct cringe-fest painting country folks as white supremacists. Normally, the author’s previous Will Robie books were great, but the author obviously has come down with TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome). I may it 80% through it, then couldn’t stand any more preachy lefty propaganda. Avoid at all costs. Give you money to a conservative author.
