Cheers To The Molotov Cocktail!


Happy New Year!

My favorite “New Years Eve” drink is the High Octane Molotov Cocktail.

Possibly the most widely used incendiary device in the world.  It’s easy and cheap to make.

The Molotov cocktail, also known as a petrol bomb, poor man’s grenade, fire bomb (not to be confused with an actual fire bomb) or just Molotov is a generic name used for a variety of bottle-based improvised incendiary weapons.

 Due to the relative ease of production, they are frequently used by amateur protesters and non-professionally equipped fighters in urban guerrilla warfare. They are primarily intended to set targets ablaze rather than instantly destroy them.

Disclaimer: Use and Making of a Molotov Cocktail.

In the U.S., the Molotov is considered a “destructive device” by the ATF and is illegal in many states. As always, I never advocate breaking the law and landing yourself in jail.

A Molotov cocktail is a breakable glass bottle containing a flammable substance such as gasoline or petrol or a napalm-like mixture, with some motor oil added, and usually a source of ignition such as a burning cloth wick held in place by the bottle’s stopper. The wick is usually soaked in alcohol or kerosene, rather than gasoline.

In action, the wick is lit and the bottle hurled at a target such as a vehicle or fortification. When the bottle smashes on impact, the ensuing cloud of petrol droplets and vapor ignites, causing an immediate fireball followed by a raging fire as the remainder of the fuel is consumed.

It’s also a very good bet that besides a fire arm, it will be the most used weapon in a grid down SHTF environment.

Got Guns?


“You see, in this world, there’s two kinds of people, my friend — those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig.”
~Clint Eastwood, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Now I’ll be the first to say that I think way too many preppers and survivalist focus entirely too much on firearms for survival.

While I’m all for having the best gun and gear you can afford and the best training you can get. I find all the weapons talk on the inter-web to be juvenile and boring.

This obsession with the top 5 guns every doomsday prepper should have is ludicrous.

I suggest you subscribe to the words of the Major Basil Plumley character played by Sam Elliot in the movie “We Were Soldiers”.

When asked if he thinks he should get himself an M-16, he replies…

“Sir, if the time comes I need one, there’ll be plenty lying on the ground.”

We were Soldiers

However, whether I like it or not is is irrelevant.  History shows that weapons do make a difference.

Even in the hands of children.gun child

And in a lawless land, I prefer to be armed.

In my book I have a section called “Pick a Winning SHTF Survival Team.  At the beginning of that section I say the following;

“You have to keep in mind that human nature hasn’t changed throughout history.  Societies have always run on these 4 rules.”

1.   The strongest get what they want before the weakest.

2.   Men have always subjugated other men in one fashion or another.

3.   The people with the money and wealth make the rules.

4.   The people who have weapons enforce the rules.

Being armed or not is a personal choice.

I will say this, whatever you choose, you should at the very least understand the 4 rules I’ve listed above.

Robots, Drones, and Google Oh My!

SW Droid-horz

The world’s largest internet search company has acquired Boston Dynamics, a privately held company best known for building robots that look as if they belong in a science-fiction movie and which are often co-developed or funded by the US military.

The acquisition is the latest by Google’s secretive robotics division, led by Andy Rubin, former boss of the company’s Android mobile operating system.

Google’s robotics division has acquired more than SIX other robotics companies.

I find that very interesting.

Add to that fact that our government now has worldwide mass surveillance.  They can listen to every phone call and track and record all emails traffic.  They know what your browsing, posting, twittering and buying.

The types of surveillance and data collection in George Orwell’s book 1984 are nothing like we have today.  Privacy is a thing of the past.

We have sensors in our pockets (cell phones) that track us everywhere we go.


There’s really nothing we can do about the global surveillance.  It’s too late to stop that. It’s already firmly in place and has laws to protect it.

As far as the rise of the robot army, we don’t even know what’s coming. We can however, keep an eye on the robots that are currently flying around.

Here’s a link to a “Drone Survival Guide” website.


On that note, I must apologize.

My imagination get’s away from me sometimes and I’m probably just over reacting.


What could possibly go wrong with an organization that has total global surveillance capabilities and a Robot Army?

If you are reading this and know John Conner, the future messianic figure who will lead the Resistance to defeat an empire of Robotic Terminators amassed by SKYNET, I highly suggest you send him a copy of…

Eat the Rich and the Minnesota Starvation Experiment.


Eat the Rich

Financial experts warn that the entire world is currently looming on the inevitability of a worldwide economic collapse.  More and more we hear statements by financial gurus defining our current system as “mathematically guaranteed to fail” and “unsustainable”.

Edgar Rice Burroughs was right when he used the phrase, “the thin veneer of civilization” to describe mankind’s condition in relation to his more fundamental savage makeup.

When the U.S. dollar collapses the people will be angry and looking to place blame for their misery. The disillusioned youth and angry workers will rise up against their betters.  The first to suffer will be the business owners and wealthy individuals in this country.  The “Mob Rules” doctrine will be firmly in place.

“When the people shall have nothing more to eat, they will eat the rich.”
― Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Mobs have a mind of their own.  We hear in the news these days about “flash mobs”.

There are two kinds of flash mobs.  One is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and seemingly pointless act for a brief time, and then quickly disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, and artistic expression.

The other kind is for the purpose crime.   These mobs start with the intent or lead to the destruction of private property, rioting, violence, and personal injury.

The latter is the one we’re concerned with.  We’ve all watched recent events on TV where the mobs turn to rioting and cause destruction after sporting events or a jury verdict.

It’s estimated that over 100,000 people participated in the 1992 LA riots.  Participants of that riot did so primarily over racial hatred not food.

In 3 days without eating, a person who’s starving will have a complete change in their psychological and sociological behavior.

A primitive, primal like behavior will emerge in such an individual.  Their need to feed will begin to overwhelm their ethics, morals and lawfulness.  The need to eat is a very powerful motivating force which none of us are immune from.  Throughout history, there are many accounts of humans resorting to cannibalism to survive in extreme circumstances.

It’s easy for us to say that we would never resort to theft, looting, rioting, murder, or cannibalism.  We confidently make such a statement with a belly full of food and a full refrigerator.  We make these statements knowing that there are stocked grocery stores, and restaurants serving meals down the street.

In 1944, Dr. Andrew Keys conducted the “Great Starvation Experiment” at the University of Minnesota.  He conducted this experiment to develop a rescue strategy for victims of concentration camps of World War II.  He studied the psychological and physiological effects of starvation on the human body.

The results showed the participants suffered severe psychological trauma and side effects.  They lost the ability to concentrate and form rational thought.  They lost the ability to make sound judgments and comprehend the world around them.  They had severe mood swings, were easily irritated and were always angry.  Dreams and thoughts of cannibalism were reported by the test subjects.  There were also acts of self mutilation, threats of murder and theft.

It’s important to note that these test subjects were volunteers of sound body and mind.  Their caloric intake was only reduced to half of their normally daily diet and they were still eating two meals a day during the experiment.  They knew when the experiment would begin and end.  They also knew they would not die during the study.


What will starving mobs of people do when there is no food in the stores and the rule of law is absent?  What atrocities will they commit when there is no fear of consequence for any ones action?

The bigger question is what would you do if you were starving?

The Mob is the Mother of Tyrants.”  ~Diogenes

If you want to avoid the mobs or maybe want to eat  the rich, you’ll be interested in my book “The SHTF Art of War.”

The idiots want you to join their village.

Don’t join the village of idiots.

I found this little movie called “iDiots” not only fun to watch, it also sums up our consumer based society as a whole. Just click the image above to watch this 4 minute movie.

Most people are surface thinkers never paying attention to what’s around them or ask any questions.

They never look below the surface of the reality they are handed.

Most people never look beyond the words on the pages of the book. They don’t look into the motivations behind the people or person who wrote the book.

If you know someone like this, I suggest you try to get them to watch the movie “Ethos: A Time For Change.”  Just click the picture below.


However, you must be mindful that even when the truth is laid out in front of some people, they still wont accept it.


There are a lot of preppers and survivalists that fall into that category as well.

If you are reading this out of the way, little blog, I say the odds are very high that you do not fall into that category of oblivious human consumer.


You are a splinter collective of a fringe society that’s broke away from a minority group that makes up an infinitesimal portion of main stream society.

You’re more than likely someone that could be called “On Their Own Program.”If you sometimes feel all alone in your awareness, remember this;

“It’s lonely at the top and in the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king.”

If you’d like to learn more about being on your own program and how the criminal element will take advantage of a grid down environment to make a bad situation worse,

SHTF Ice Age

Our sun is not waking up from its 11 year cycle of inactivity.

The sun waxes and wanes with an approximate 11-year cycle.


In the past when the sun hasn’t woken up from its 11 year slumber it has been followed by a mini ice age.

Which by the way, has had devastating effects on the population that inhabits the planet earth.

Low solar activity = ice age.

Our star appears to be entering into a Grand Solar Minimum.

“There is something called the Grand Solar Minimum, a diminution of radiation from the Sun that is likely to precede a new ice age and is predicted to last a century.

Since the period between ice ages is generally 11,500 years we are at the very end of the current interglacial period.

This period of solar inactivity also corresponds to a climatic period called the “Little Ice Age” when rivers that are normally ice-free froze and snow fields remained year-round at lower altitudes. There is evidence that the Sun has had similar periods of inactivity in the more distant past.


A mini ice age lasting a century or longer would devastate our food production capability and cause mass migrations.  I’m pretty sure there would be an economic impact to this climate change as well.  All of which would lead to a SHTF situation.

To stay up on all this space weather I follow the Suspicius 0bserver.

If you are the no BS type of survivor and want to know how to endure the next ice age, you’ll be interested in my book “The SHTF Art of War.

A literary work that is stripped down to quickly deliver the reader information on topics such as disaster personalities, the 21 traits and skills of an apocalyptic warlord and how he will conduct his reign of terror. It covers how to pick a winning survival team, 25 FEMA camp refugee rules, how to get ready for your FEMA camp stay and what it takes to be a post apocalyptic scavenger. Plus a list of post apocalyptic professions to ensure you are a value to a grid down community.
