Preparedness Notes for Wednesday — September 11, 2019

September 11th is of course the anniversary of the 2001 Al Qaeda attacks on the U.S. , but it is also the anniversary of the Benghazi Embassy attacks, in 2012. (Those events were recounted in the Hollywood film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.) Please remember the sacrifice of J. Christopher Stevenson, Sean Smith, and CIA (former Navy SEAL) agents Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. Between them, Woods and Doherty reportedly dropped at least 60 of the attackers, before their position was overwhelmed. Please also remember the spineless worms in Washington, D.C. who decided to not back up the embassy staff when they were in dire need of help. Eventually, they will pay for that. Time wounds all heels.

Don’t forget that September 20th is Paratus. That is the annual survivalist gift-giving holiday. It was the invention of Commander Zero of the Notes From The Bunker blog.

Today we present a short guest article. Because it is less than 1,500 words long, it will not be ncluded in the judging for the SurvivalBlog non-fiction writing contest.


  1. A lot of people with “never forget” signs forgot long ago. They look on as our rights are trampled right in front of them. Every time I think of this day I feel anger and sorrow. I remember where I was when I heard and my disbelief and rage. What will it take to open the eyes of the sheep? They willingly forfeit our rights in the name of political correctness, “fairness”, inclusivity , while railing against white privilege.We must take care of United States citizens first, refugees and immigrants after. Hillary Clinton should have been prosecuted long ago for abandoning our men in Benghazi. Keep fighting the good fight. Do not let them win. Always remember 9/11 . Protect yourself and your family. Prepare and keep up the good work.

    1. Never forget
      The Official Version of 9/11 goes something like this…

      Directed by a beardy-guy from a cave in Afghanistan, nineteen hard-drinking, coke-snorting, devout Muslims enjoy lap dances before their mission to meet Allah…Using nothing more than craft knifes, they overpower cabin crew, passengers and pilots on four planes…And hangover or not, they manage to give the world’s most sophisticated air defense system the slip…

      … Unfazed by leaving their “How to Fly a Passenger Jet” guide in the car at the airport, they master the controls in no-time and score direct hits on two towers, causing THREE to collapse completely…Our masterminds even manage to overpower the odd law of physics or two… and the world watches in awe as steel-framed buildings fall symmetrically – through their own mass – at free-fall speed, for the first time in history.

      Despite all their dastardly cunning, they stupidly give their identity away by using explosion-proof passports, which survive the fireball undamaged and fall to the ground… only to be discovered by the incredible crime-fighting sleuths at the FBI

      Meanwhile down in Washington …Hani Hanjour, having previously flunked 2-man Cessna flying school, gets carried away with all the success of the day and suddenly finds incredible abilities behind the controls of a Boeing…Instead of flying straight down into the large roof area of the Pentagon, he decides to show off a little…Executing an incredible 270 degree downward spiral, he levels off to hit the low facade of the world’s most heavily defended building……all without a single shot being fired…. or ruining the nicely mowed lawn… and all at a speed just too fast to capture on video

      ……Later, in the skies above Pennsylvania …So desperate to talk to loved ones before their death, some passengers use sheer willpower to connect mobile calls that otherwise would not be possible until several years later …And following a heroic attempt by some to retake control of Flight 93, it crashes into a Shanksville field leaving no trace of engines, fuselage or occupants… except for the standard issue Muslim terrorists bandana…

      …Further south in Florida…President Bush, our brave commander-in-Chief continues to read “My Pet Goat” to a class full of primary school children… shrugging off the obvious possibility that his life could be in imminent danger…In New York…Trade Center leaseholder Larry Silverstein blesses his own foresight in insuring the buildings against terrorist attack only six weeks previously…While back in Washington, Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz shake their heads in disbelief at their own luck in getting the ‘New Pearl Harbor’ catalyzing event they so desired to pursue their agenda of world domination…And finally, not to be disturbed too much by reports of their own deaths, at least seven of our nineteen suicide hijackers turn up alive and kicking in mainstream media reports.

      1. Don’t forget the USS Cole or the 1983 Beirut suicide bombing. Regardless of the narrative or who the bad actors were , Americans were killed and the 9/11 event was and is being used to steal our rights. That should make all of us angry. The cost of these events alone is crippling ,financially and constitutionally. I am also a skeptic of most stories we are fed. The new story is about all of the evil guns, not how most mass shooters were already on the radar of law enforcement and allowed to carry on. Yellow journalism told Americans to “remember the Maine”. Thanks to Survivalblog for letting us share opinions. Thank you Tim Osman and others for your comments. Prepare and keep up the good work.

  2. I have seen a lot of the “We will never forget” meme on different outlets. Well with the past elections and what is going on inside the USA, it seems like a great deal of voters already have forgotten.

  3. To be, or not to be, which is it for 5G?

    In a Lisa Haven interview, a sensible examination of what is known or unknown, and what to do about 5G is pursued:

    Given the unknown risks, ask if it is needed or not. Radio frequencies do have an effect on the biological, and like the ill effects of modern chemistry, modern RF , ultra high 5G, would add risks to our health that are certainly unknown. Is the promised benefits from the the industry that already spies on us, and censors us worth the risk? This is their invention, and they aggressively invest billions. Why? Would they have our best interests in mind? Should we expose our children and grandchildren to this risk?

    One does not have to have their hair on fire to derive the answer. Unless one does not live at the edge, or beyond cell service, this weak, yet high intensity electromagnetic energy cannot improve our health. It could be like living in a microwave. If bathed in 5G, it may disrupt the normal function and chemistry of intra-celluar activity anywhere in the body, including the brain, and cook us slowly, like an egg. The question is whether or not you would prefer to be hard or soft boiled on the topic? Would we wish to commit suicide? While the Bible has real wisdom, the poignant pose makes the point. Try the Mel Gibson version if you’d like:

    William Shakespear. Hamlet ponders suicide by 5G?:

    “To be, or not to be: that is the question:
    Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
    The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
    Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
    And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
    No more; and by a sleep to say we end
    The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
    That flesh is heir to, ’tis a consummation
    Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;

  4. Re: The Baofeng Deadline Approaches, (

    Here is an impressive package deal. Please do not buy them all up. I need one too.

    A good mobile is always a Kenwood. I first saw ye’ol 2 channel Motorolla in operation in 1964, yet Anytone now has tri-band rigs cheap. However, Kenwood is a Cadillac. I do not prefer the mulit-band rigs for a serious operation, or the shack in the box approach, but the redundancy a multi- system approach. I started with a Sheriff’s Dept as radio dispatcher in a high speed environment and survived. Pushing small button under dress is not a good idea. Keeping it ‘stoopid simple’ is the better idea.

  5. 9/11 suggestion, get a chunk of I beam a can of kerosene and a lighter and recreate how some kerosene melted specially alloyed structural girders and evaporated multiple vaults full of gold. Don’t forget building 7 with the evidence for hundreds/thousands of high profile criminal cases. Thank the Russians for their repeated warnings(almost all intelligence services(friendly and not gave similar warnings) and your gov. preventive actions.
