CMFSP Reorganization

Your humble host is in the process of reorganizing all of the components of the Chip Monk Family Survival Podcast project into a simpler, easier-to-access format and one of the pieces is reconfiguring how I use the blog here.  I plan to restart this next week with a daily news format (similar to what does) interspersed with articles, etc. written by myself and listeners of the show.
Thanks for listening!

The Truth Behind the Wall Street Protests?

I try to avoid politics on this show as much as possible, but when it directly relates to a "Survival/Preparedness Issue" it is difficult to do so.  Much is being written about the "Occupy Wall Street" movement at present so I don't need to repeat it all here.  What I will say is this appears to me to be little more than an orchestrated action from the White House,, various Unions, and groups ranging from Communists to others of the leftist ilk.  While perhaps sounding a bit nutty even to myself at this point, it seems to me that this campaign could be an actual strategic part of the 2012 Campaign planned months in advance as an effort to drastically change the current political dynamic (there needs to be something to distract attention from the economy and even more bad news, right?).  Now, none of this is to say that I don't think that maybe they have legitimate concerns, and the truth is I agree with some of their points.  At the same time, they seem to be setting themselves up to be used by people in positions of power as their use of White House talking points seems to demonstrate.
What is worrisome is how easily and quickly this could spin out of control.  If you live in a major city that could be affected by these developments I highly suggest you keep a close eye on this with past events (WTO Riots in Seattle, Watts Riots, Rodney King riots, 1960s unrest, etc.) in mind. 
For some reason this all makes me think back to last March and this article from The Left’s Economic Terrorism Playbook: The Chase Campaign by a Coalition of Unions, Community Groups, Lawmakers and Students to Take Down US Capitalism and Redistribute Wealth & Power
Not to mention this: Wikipedia page on the 1917 Russian Revolution

James Wesley, Rawles' new book out today: Survivors

Today is the "Book Bomb" day for James Wesley, Rawles' new fictional book Survivors.  If you liked Patriots (or even if you didn't) I have a feeling that this is going to be an interesting read although I do not have my copy yet.  I am going to be placing my order today to try to help it jump up on the charts and support Rawles' efforts.  He has been gracious to the podcast in the past by linking to us and I hope to respond in kind.  I'll do a review once I receive my copy and get a chance to sit down and read it. 

Syria threatens to attack Tel Aviv if Assad Regime targetted by NATO,7340,L-4131259,00.html

QUOTE: In a meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, Assad said: "If a crazy measure is taken against Damascus, I will need not more than six hours to transfer hundreds of rockets and missiles to the Golan Heights to fire them at Tel Aviv." 

Wouldn't take much to set off a World War III these days, would it? 

Changes/Updates on the Chip Monk Family Survival Podcast

I wanted to let my faithful blog-readers know why it's been a bit quiet of late from my end of things. I recently acquired a new web site for the Chip Monk Family Survival Podcast and am working to centralize all my efforts together on a single site. The new domain is:
My plans are for it to be a combined podcast feed/blog where people can easily locate all of my efforts discussing Survivalism/Preparedness/Disaster Readiness. Once I get it up and running I plan to do more frequent episodes and daily postings.  The blog here will then be mostly specific articles (with illustrations) I have written/am planning to write that will allow me to further explore various topics in greater depth.
Thanks as always for your support as we move this project to the next level.
