It is irresponsible of the media to jump to conclusions. While they reserved judgment for the Fort Hood shooter, they should also called for civility instead of finger pointing. I do agree the tension is so high right now, anything could happen.

This tragedy was never politically motivated, so it’s best we leave it as it is : a tragedy sparked by a vicious man bent on destruction. He will be judged by the Higher Power.

As for the victims, I prayed they could return to normalcy. My heart goes out to everyone involved, and may this incident never occurs again. Thus, we have to learn to prepare for the worse, cause it could be coming anytime, anywhere for anyone.

Re: Super Heated Water.

Yes guys, be very careful with this. I managed to achieve a state of super-heated water when warming up water for tea. Only I used TAP WATER in a COFFEE CUP.

I have made tea in the microwave hundreds of times, but this time, I opened the microwave, saw the cup sitting there, reached in, and the second I grabbed it, POP.

It sounded like a dud firecracker- that hollow “POOF” sound. For the first split second, I was amazed. What the heck had just happened?

Then I realized that the skin from my right wrist all the way up to my elbow was a dark red color. Probably a second or two after it happened, a searing pain set in, and I panicked- dropping the now empty coffee cup, and I began tearing at my right arm with my left hand. You can imagine my shock when I realized that my skin was COMING OFF.

I ran to the sink and began running cold water over the wound, which now had blood seeming through scratches. That was when I realized that my entire chest was wet, starting at my neck line- thank God, the microwave sent the blast straight into my chest, with my face having ‘defilade’ from the inside of the microwave. My chest started hurting, and I felt through my shirt, and realized that I had got burned through my shirt as well.

I felt short of breath, and realized that I might be going into shock. I forced myself to start laughing at the ridiculousness of the situation, and began singing some song (I was home alone). I calmed down immediately and my breath returned.

I lifted my shirt- just red skin- no big deal. I had about 5 minutes of serenity at the sink before a very intense pain set in. At that point, I drove one-armed to the emergency room. I lived only 10 minutes from the hospital, but by the time I got there, my arm was tight from the skin shrinking or something.

I don’t remember all what the doctors did, but they rubbed this creme with Silver in it on it, and wrapped my arm and wrist up. They then gave me some minor ointment for the skin on my chest, and the couple dots on my left arm that got burned.

I had read that water in steam form takes up hundreds of times more space than the equivalent of liquid water, and now I believe it. I can’t believe how badly one coffee cup of water burned me.

From now on, I stick a tooth pick in my mug of water when warming it up, since this breaks the surface tensions and gives the water an outlet… or something.

Not fun…

David, Thank you for your vigilance on the topic of survival and preparations. We teach our clients all over the world many of the topics covered in your course and I thank God for your efforts and productive assistance to people who would otherwise be unprepared.

This shooting reveals the undercurrent that we are often encouraged not to notice. The folks that seek to rob us of liberty and gun rights holds the position of power over the media and educational system. We have been co-opted by the co-opting of our language so that we may not comfortably express our freedom to express ourselves. We fall into the subtle trap of silence and to some degree, fear, to express what we, and many others feel. This is a planned practice of the other side.

We must stand firm, give no quarter, and lift our chins to be the purveyors of truth and liberty! Thank you David for doing this in the forms you have.

Thank you for your post. I truly appreciate your taking the higher ground in recognizing the Tucson tragedy. It is important not to fan the flames that the media is so ready to do. Many people tend to attach additional meaning to this tragedy attaching their emotion and personal beliefs to this delusional act. I think we must be careful not to castigate and further divide, because this must not be about politics. Ridiculous rhetoric can shape, motivate, and unfortunately sometimes inspire misguided people to insane and desperate acts.

Thanks for your newsletter. Thirty years ago, according to
my partner at the time, I was a “preparedness nut”. Why? Because I
had went to school and lived in a foreign country, and had seen
terrorism first hand. In Mexico, they were literally blowing-up
buses of innocent people. When they blew up our clinic building, I
saw some of my friends injured. After 9/11, I got a call from that
same partner from long ago. Her words were: “I always thought you
were a nut.. Now I see that you were right.. What should I do?” So,
I told her. And to this day, I suppose ill be “judged” as a
“survival nut”, and you know what, I don’t care. Because knowledge
is power, and by God, if there’s a way to survive, ill find it. As
for the lunatic who committed this horrible crime, it saddens me
that no-one stopped him, or shot him, before he caused more damage.
Thanks, Gregory.

RE: Antibiotics Hi Dave, My husband and I thoroughly are
enjoying your course. We have “prepper” mindsets anyway and the
course is helping us organize and spot a LOT of areas that we have
not addressed. So thanks so much for everything you do and God
bless all of your efforts. Anyway…. Antibiotics are wonderful for
unmanageable infections and should be used ONLY when absolutely
necessary. If you must take an antibiotic, it is prudent to also
take a good probiotic combination after the antibiotic and for
several days thereafter. (Available at any good health food store –
make sure they have kept it refrigerated and do the same.) Nasty
things can happen to your body if you don’t make sure your gut
bacteria is intact. Just ask my husband. My husband has had
knee-replacement and must take a mega-dose of antibiotics an hour
before he has any dental cleanings done to combat the possibility
of deep bone infection. (He would not listen to me and take any
probiotics.) A few days after the cleaning, he developed a severe 6
week case of the “trots”. Imodium would not touch it. His good gut
bacteria had been wiped out. After week 3 of the “trots” and 2 or 3
big boxes of Imodium, he agreed to start on a regiment of
mega-probiotics (80 billion bacta-babies, yes billion, strong). It
took 3 more weeks to reestablish all the good flora in his system.
At the end of week 6, he could finally go to the bathroom normally.
He said that he will not ever make that mistake again. What would
survival be like if you had to get out of Dodge and run to the
“nearest tree” ever 15 minutes? You couldn’t carry enough toilet
paper. I shudder at the thought. Again, thanks so much and may our
LORD shine His face upon you, Elizabeth

i have practiced real prepardness just after the twin
towers were first hit in 1993 and most of my so call friends said i
was being stupid and foolish and should grow up and i said you just
wait and see what happens. when sept 11. 2001 happen i got lots of
calls from the same people who call me stupid and silly and ask
(what can i do to prepair and i said it if to little to late to
prepair and its best you fend for yourself and dont bother me after
they they came to me with their tail tucked between their legs and
applogize and then i let them start getting preparded with my
guidence. its funny that those of us that are always in a state of
preparation are laughed at but when disaster strikes we are the
first ones ask what to do? its funny that all of us who prepair
will be the ones running things with the crap hits the fan

I have been seriously involved in preparedness issues since at least 1967. I have watched the arrival of various trends. Preparedness has always been seen as unsetteling and even disturbing by the unprepared. I thank you for your interesting posts.

Hi Dave,

If you’re feeling the effects from flu or any other virus, I suggest you try a ‘Clark Zapper’. They are very cheap (DIY kit for $50). I would also use MMS (miracle mineral solution) and Oxysilver. I also urge people to read Hulda Clark’s book, ‘The cure for all Diseases). You can download it for free here:

Avoid vaccinations and anything pharmaceutical.
Get a daily dose of the sun (Vit D) , 7 minutes at midday is best depending on cloud cover and where you live in the world.

Use a superior mouthwash like ‘LiquidDentist’, or if you cant afford it use a strong mix of hydrogen peroxide and distilled water but dont swallow it.
Discard fluoridated toothpaste and acquire a good herbal alternative.

Grow and consume your own organic fruit and vege.. (non-hybrid)

and keep up the great work mate.

God speed to you all.
