Conscience and Religious Freedom Division

Are you feeling persecuted and trodden upon? Do you feel that you have no friends and no one likes you anymore? Have no fear! The government is here to help. The U.S. health and Human Services has announced a new division in the Office for Civil Rights. In their own words, the new division, called “The Conscience and Religious Freedom Division” has been established to restore federal enforcement of our nation’s laws that protect the fundamental and unalienable rights of conscience and religious freedom. Did you feel that … Continue reading

Relocation of Illegal Aliens

Reader B.B. sent in this article on how the government is relocating illegal aliens within the borders of the U.S. by using Homeland Security officials in plan clothes as escorts and commercial flights to avoid drawing attention to the program. At least two flights are known (originating from Harlingen, TX and Tucson, AZ) where illegal aliens who appeared to be in their late teens were escorted by Health and Human Services chaperons. Judicial Watch has contacted the agency for comment on the incidents, but so far has not received any answers.

Hawaii Hacked?

Human engineering, the bane of system administrators the world over has struck again. The Associated Press had a photo from inside Hawaii’s emergency management agency that showed a post-it note attached to a window with a critical password written on it. You would think that agencies would at least circulate a memo and/or give a warning to employees about leaving such information out in the open when visitors are in the center. The logical position is to ban such behavior, but humans, being what they are, will simply ignore such bans. Thanks to P.S. for the link.

Mine is Real

Reader P.S. sent in this YouTube video that is almost humorus. Two young perpetrators attempt to rob a quick-mart at gun-point. The only problem is that they didn’t check outside before they did it and almost immediately a cop enters who opens fire on them after they have hopped the counter, striking both. You can hear one of them yelling: “It’s fake! the gun’s fake” and the cops response is priceless: “Oh well, mine is real.” At least this time, crime did not pay.

Eye Bleeding Outbreak

Uganda’s Health Ministry finally confirmed that they may be facing a large scale outbreak of Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever. They also fear a large scale pandemic of this disease. Emergency response teams are being deployed to the districts of Nakaseke and Luweero. While only the nine year-old girl has succumbed to the disease in Uganda, three people in neighboring South Sudan have also died of the disease. The disease is spread to humans via tick bites or contact with raw meat and infected animal blood immediately after slaughter. It’s … Continue reading

Oops

Several SurvivalBlog readers sent in this huge mistake: A Civil Defense employee in Hawaii accidentally triggered a ballistic missile warning. The alert was issued by cell phone test yesterday morning and sparked terror as thousands fled to bomb shelters. The employee wasn’t even aware that he has issued the alert til his own phone notified him. It took 38 minutes for a correction to be issued by the same alert system. While many are upset by the alert, considering the world events in the Pacific region right now, this was probably a good thing. At least people now know how poorly prepared … Continue reading

Institutional Evil

A project Veritas video shows former Twitter employees discussing “Shadow Banning” users. This is the policy where the platform allows those who are in control to arbitrarily apply censorship to the platform. Those users who have ideals contrary to the censors get their accounts locked and/or banned or have tweets removed. Conservative concepts regularly get flagged yet left-leaning content sails through unchecked. Thanks to D.B. for the link.

Bundy Trial

Judge Navarro, in a fit of sanity (or is that concern over her position due to her past actions) declared the the case dismissed with prejudice. For those who haven’t had dealings with the courts before, that basically means that the case is dismissed and can’t be brought up again on those specific charges. The Bundy’s now get to go home and pretend that it never happened despite the two years they spent locked up in jail.

I’m not suggesting that the Bundy’s are innocent of all charges, but the feds (law enforcement, prosecution andContinue reading

Confusion on New Gun Rules

Over the last two years, California has passed considerable gun control legislation. Without getting to political, I think it’s fair to point the finger at Reagan’s immigration amnesty program as one of the root causes of the left leaning biases in the state today. A fair warning to anyone considering such an action today. With many of the new rules being challenged in court, how do you know what you can and can’t do right now? Reader P.S. sent in this article with a reasonable interpretation of the current state: New gun restrictions are coming to California in … Continue reading

Massive Protests in Iran

Citizens in the most destructive country in the Middle East have begun protesting in the thousands. Demonstrators in Iran took to the streets on Friday to protest rising prices and corruption in Iran’s Islamic government. The protests also included calls of “Death to the dictator”. The protesters are mostly comprised of adults under the age of 40. While starting over economic issues, the demonstrators quickly morphed into calls for freedom of political prisoners and an end to the clerical regime.

The Last Combat Mission

Jerry Yellin, who flew the last combat mission of World War II, has died at age 93. In the days following the atomic raids on Japan, all aircraft flying combat missions over Japan were supposed to receive a coded signal to turn back to base if Japan surrendered. Emperor Hirohito announced the surrender as Lieutenant Yellen was leading his four-plane attack, but for some reason his planes did not receive the message. It was only after returning from the mission … Continue reading

Fallout Shelters

New York has begun removing the 1960s era fallout shelter signs strewn around the city. During the 1960s, at the height of the cold war, the signs were erected in places that had locations suitable for sheltering from nuclear fallout and had been stocked, at least somewhat, for a shortish stay as a refuge against nuclear disaster. The idea was if you were caught away from home, you only had to look for one of these signs to know you would be “safer”. Sadly, survivors would most likely find themselves rattling locked doors or … Continue reading
