Preparedness Notes for Wednesday — June 24, 2020

June 24th the birthday of rifle-toting abolitionist pastor Henry Ward Beecher. (Born 1813, died March 8, 1887.) He and his adherents from his church smuggled so many Sharps rifles to Bleeding Kansas that the Sharps rifles picked up the nickname Beecher’s Bibles.

Wikipedia says of Beecher: “Several of his brothers and sisters became well-known educators and activists, most notably Harriet Beecher Stowe, who achieved worldwide fame with her abolitionist novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin.”

I wonder if the monument to Henry Ward Beecher will be the next target of the BLM iconoclasts. I suppose that someone should inform them of the man’s history.

SurvivalBlog readers who live on the west coast, take note of the prediction included in this video by amateur earthquake expert “Dutchsinse”: Another M7.4 Earthquake strikes Pacific – Mexico – Buildings sway cracks form in ground.

Reader M.S. in England wrote to mention: “Someone is taking your posts and is re-posting in French which is odd.”

JWR’s Réponse:Que diable! Incroyable!  Reader M. from Canada notes: “L’imitation est la plus sincère des flatteries.”

Meanwhile, in China.  (Please pray that the flooding ends in China, and for the millions who are downriver of the Three Gorges Dam.)


  1. Since they vandalized a monument to Blacks fighting for the Union, and Abraham Lincoln’s statue with a freed slave, nothing will surprise me. It is obvious to anyone with one functioning brain cell that these idiots are out of control and being guided what to do, when to do it, and where to do it.

    NO ONE or anything is safe from the mob.
    [As an example, during the Reign of Terror during the French Revolution 200 years ago, the Mob started executing the leaders of the Mob. … During the Communist Revolutions, many of the plotters end up being executed by their follow communist plotters, and buried in an anonymous Plot (in the ground).
    USA mobs =
    “The same group [mob] also tore down the Col. Hans Christian Heg statue a short time later. The group then went on to throw the statue into Lake Monona. Heg fought for the Union during the Civil War and was a stark opponent of slavery during that time.”
    [WQOW news site ~ about the mob riot on June 23, 2020, in Madison WI, reported on June 24, in the article.]

    Many people in the ‘mob’ are being directed and incited, by people opposed to the continuance of the United States as envisioned by the voters. …
    Beezlebub wants death; the destruction of the USA would further the goals of the devil. … [Many ‘Mob’ members advocate ~slavery to mind changing drugs, alcohol, promiscuous sex, and pornography. … It’s ‘free speech’ for everyone they like, and the silencing of those they oppose. Christian Churches and Christian values are a main target for the mob.]

  3. I believe the Marxist’s/Commie revolution has been ignited a Obama controlled faction of the CIA, or just as likely, contractors, that have used racism as the blasting cap. This article only examines the racism angle and is one dimensional.
    However, it is instructive. At least take of note of the map, if the article is not of interest.

    For those in the ‘big cities’, the racism issue is currently most the relevant. As Seattle so well demonstrates, sympathetic governors and mayors are complicit, and citizens of any color are not safe from the mayhem. As it is currently, road ways are subject to being ambushed by hordes of ‘demonstrators’, and drivers beaten. If faced with this situation, do not stop your vehicle, but keep moving. Unless the insurrection is put down by Trump, it will only get worse sooner rather than later. And if there will be martial law in Seattle, or anywhere, it will not be a pleasant experience for anyone. Sales of property in Lincoln County, Montana have escalated, and although the Canadian border remains closed, camp grounds are filling up with out of state plates. The great escape has begun. Get going now before panic buying ensues. Get here, or be square. Soon, all the gold in your vault might be needed to make the jump.

    Hit and Miss.

    Looks like I’ll be acquiring two hit and miss engines, both with good compression and tight bearings, and in otherwise in fine condition as they are fully restored. Because these have simple carburetors, they are easily converted to running off a wood gasifier, or propane. Wood gasifiers were used during WW2 to power many kinds of vehicles, from tanks to taxi’s. Here is one of many videos demonstrating that a hit and miss engine can run a generator under a load.

  4. “I wonder if the monument to Henry Ward Beecher will be the next target of the BLM iconoclasts. I suppose that someone should inform them of the man’s history.”

    BLM doesn’t care about the man’s history. Beecher was a white man and BLM hates whites, “white” history and culture. To fail to understand that BLM hates you because you are a white Caucasian is to fail to understand the true danger and threat these savages are.

    If you are a white man or woman, the savage thugs of BLM would just as soon cut your throat as give you the time of day. That is why they are tearing down statues of Abe Lincoln and other white men who were “anti-slavery”. They were white men first and BLM hates anyone or anything “white”.

    Their goal is to turn America into Somalia and our cities into Mogadishu. From the look of it they are doing a darn fine job of it. (sarc).
