"You're An Idiot & A Lunatic if You Question 'Safe Spaces' Or 'Microaggression'" - President Of Northwestern

Never mind that he’s talking about many who his university educated, including me.

Are You Designated As A “Super Gun Owner” And Will You Soon Be Targeted For Disarmament?

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:
Isoroku Yamamoto was the fleet admiral of the Japanese Imperial Navy during World War II and was reportedly quoted as saying that you cannot invade the mainland of the United States because “there would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.”
It is true that Americans own some 265 million guns nationwide at last count, so Yamamoto was probably not too far off about the amount of firearms Americans have at their disposal.
But a new survey from Harvard/Northeastern suggests that just because we have that many privately owned firearms in America doesn’t necessarily mean that 265 million of us are armed.

Russia Continues to Accumulate Gold, While China Prepares for a Major Announcement – Nathan McDonald

by Nathan McDonald, Sprott Money:
In the face of everything that is going on during this insane election cycle, it is easy to forget that there are forces operating behind the scenes, regardless of what the news cycle is reporting on.
The elections, which are to showcase the first debate on Monday between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and is speculated to be the most-watched election event in U.S. history, is important and captivating indeed, but still, the world continues on, no matter what the results of that night bring.
Two such countries that are not waiting to see who the next President is are Russia and China, both of which are continuing to prepare themselves for the day when the U.S. dollar is supplanted and no longer the reserve currency of the world. This day, as many of our readers are well aware of, is inevitable.

Hits And Misses: Lessons Learned After Six Years Of Prepping

by Gaye Levy, The Sleuth Journal:
As someone who has been prepping for six years, I have learned a lot along the way. During these six years, my survival skills, food and water storage, and general knowledge have grown exponentially to the point where I have grown comfortable, if not complacent, with my preps.
Alas, the world has changed a lot since 2010. Things I prepared for on day one are now far less important in the big scheme of things than the things I prepare for today. Things I prepare for today are more far-reaching than issues associated with geographic isolation, the next big earthquake, or a regional food shortage. What I now prepare for is a Venezuela-type economic melt-down, or a Cyprus-like seizure of bank assets and depositor bail-in. I also prepare for an extended power outage lasting a year or longer.
