Over the last few years the once dominant sports news outlet ESPN has come under fire for their perceived political bias after the network fired multiple employees for conservative viewpoints while propping up those that pushed the companies anti-Trump agenda.
From firing baseball icon Curt Schilling to allowing prime-time SportsCenter news anchor Jemele Hill to smear the president on Twitter, the network has an obvious liberal leaning and many conservatives have rightly called out this transparent bias.
Now, in a fiery interview with Sports Illustrated, one of the networks poster boys, Scott Van Pelt, has responded to his conservative critics by attacking them for even having the gall to question ESPNs political bias in the first place.
Van Pelt attempted to act like a tough guy, calling out said critics for being cowards who he believes only speak out against ESPN on the internet but would never do so in real life.
This make believe world where everyone talks shit, this shit talking, poke you in the chest virtual whatever its just theres nothing more chicken shit than that, because its the easiest thing in the world to do, Van Pelt laughably said before targeting those who have boycotted his network in the past.
In what one can only assume was a network approved attack on their critics, Van Pelt then described those that have boycotted ESPN as so dumb that they dont even deserve to be prayed for.
If you truly wanna boycott the NFL and you wanna boycott ESPN, the notion that some guy sitting out there, or gal, and they decide, you know what, Im gonna cut my entire cable package because ESPN gave an award on a made-up show in July because theres no sports, to a woman who used to be a man.
So Im now not gonna have any cable TV at all and Im gonna sit around at night and read books by candlelight like olden times because of that, thats not happening.
And if you did that, than youre so dumb that I cant even pray for you because youre beyond hope.
Yep, that is apparently what the networks most visible personality (and thus presumably the network as a whole) thinks about conservatives.
From Hollywood to the media, and now apparently the sports world, anyone with conservative viewpoints are being openly attacked and labeled racist as a means to s...

This La Nia is expected to be relatively weak and short-lived.
Typically, warmer- and drier-than-normal conditions occur over the
South Central U.S. during a La Nia winter. The below image shows
the average difference (anomaly) in rainfall for weak La Nia
winters (December-January-February). Only years were used that had

So - new TV show. Still 'reality TV' - but this one seems
to have a bit of real life, non-fiction involved.
Production values are reasonable, the HS drama that seems to infest these kind of shows was missing for the most part.
Would I take any of this (stuff shown on the episode) as a good idea or even a good example? So far, not a chance.
I'm actually looking forward to the next episode, and it has been entertaining - something really lacking these days.

Finding ways to cool your house during a hot day or night during a blackout can get really inconvenient, most especially if youre unprepared. If you had the means to get the heat out, you would surely not think twice about doing so!
What if the blackout was caused by a natural or man-made disaster such as an earthquake, flood, forest fire, or other situations like a downed electric pole? While the power is out, there must be other ways to cool your house and keep the temperature down so you could just feel a bit more comfortable. Let me help you out with these few ways to keep your house cool during these trying times.
Assuming youre using liquefied petroleum gas, avoid cooking inside your home. Instead, cook outside or better yet, have food delivered to your home if thats possible. The heat from cooking will circulate in your home which definitely wont be helpful at all.
Open all your windows and your doors to allow the breeze to cool your home. By opening both ends of your home, the breeze will push the hot air out from one end to the other. Leaving the windows open at night will also help cool down your home the following morning.

We all know old people. Either we have elderly parents or grandparents or neighbors, or we are the elderly. Have you ever contemplated what you would do for (or to) the elderly in a SHTF scenario or during TEOTWAWKI? I have. Would you abandon them and save yourself? Or would you risk your own wellbeing in order to help them? Its a tough call and one that should be considered BEFORE things spiral out of control any further. Here are my thoughts on the...

The secret to keep feet and toes warm in your boots is largely about how your boots fit! Have you ever put on winter socks and then crammed your feet into boots only to discover that your feet and toes get cold? Doesnt make sense right? You figure that those nice thick socks combined with your boots ought to keep your feet nice and warm! Heres the secret: With winter boot socks its simple. It is imperative that your boots
Years ago, when my kids were in elementary school, I let one of them play a kids game on my computer. Hours later, when I got back on the computer, I had a virus. This was our first of many discussions about cyber safety.
Its safe to say that the internet is increasingly becoming more of an unsafe place thanks to new cyber threats coming out and child predators finding more sophisticated ways of accessing our childrens accounts. While this frightens parents, it doesnt seem to stop children from wanting to get online to play games, hang out with friends, or research. Parents must stay ever vigilant in making sure children know the threats that are out there.
As a parent, I have explained the dangers on the internet and what they need to avoid, but is this enough? We say our Stay Safe Online and Keep Away From Perverts lecture and send them on their merry way? There is much more that we must explain to them!
Part of having the responsibility of being on the internet is using it safely. These tips are musts for ensuring your kids are staying safe online.

On April 17, 2017, I went to Costco and filled my huge shopping cart with a total of 180 rolls of toilet paper. Double rolls. I felt like a king walking out of there with the cart piled high.
Now, in early November, we have about 16 rolls left in a household of 2 adults and 2 older teenager. Two guys, two gals.
Not a bad investment, and Ive always been the kind of guy who likes to stock up anyway so I can avoid shopping. In prepper circles, though, a TP stash is looked down upon and most survival types worth their salt will say something like this, Forget stocking up on toilet paper. Use old t-shirts to make personal wipes, and just run them through the washing machine.
On the surface, it sounds ideal. None of us want to go back to the days of using corn cobs, leaves, or phone books. I understand that. But think for a moment about what is involved with using cloth as toilet paper. Saving and cutting up old t-shirts is the easy part.
First, used cloth wipes will have to be kept somewhere in a location that will not attract flies, pets, rodents, and other pests of all kinds. You may think that little bucket with a lid will do the job, but you havent met Lacey, our foster Great Pyrenees. Weve had to place a filled water jug, the gallon size, on our kitchen trash to Lacey-proof it. She and her other four-legged friends would love nothing better than to wallow around in poop and pee smelling t-shirts.
Oh, the glory of it all!!!
Slightly off topic a few weeks back, my wife and I pulled up to a CVS and right there on the sidewalk by the Redbox machine was a young couple washing down their 2 large dogs. The dogs were covered with suds and it was quite a sight. I asked why they were washing their dogs in front of a CVS store and was told, We were out jogging on the trails and the dogs found some armadillo carcasses. They started rolling around on them and now they stink too much to take home.
Animals love foul-smelling things, so if you go the cloth toilet paper route, keep that in mind.
A lot of preppers who took the cloth diaper/diaper pail route, swear that its the same thing with cloth wipes. To a point, theyre correct, but in a typical home, there is only one baby producing dirty diapers. In a house...

The newest warning about the outbreak of the airborne pneumonic plague, or black death, in Madagascar has been released. Officials warn that its inevitable that this bacterial infection thats infected over 2000 people will become resistant to antibiotics.
The only way to treat a person who has contracted the plague is with antibiotics. But experts now warn that because they are being used so much to treat the infection, antibiotics resistance is inevitable and making this disease much more terrifying. Once the bacteria is resistant, the Madagascar healthcare system will be overwhelmed, and the disease will have control of the nation.
According to the Daily Mail, Madagascars healthcare system will be unable to cope if the deadly plague outbreak continues to escalate, a scientist has warned. Scores of doctors and nurses have been struck down with the disease, which is predicted to gather momentum in the coming weeks and there are growing fears hospitals will be unable to meet the illness burden. Official figures reveal at least 2,034 people have been infected with the medieval disease so far in what has been described as the worst outbreak in 50 years. The black death outbreak has so far claimed at least 165 lives.
Although the plague is responding well to antibiotics right now, drug resistance is also an increasing concern amongst experts who predict it will vastly accelerate the diseases death toll. Professor John Joe McFadden from the University of Surrey told...

A porn star and the rapper Coolio are two of the so-far presidential hopefuls to run against Donald Trump in 2020. And both say their campaign has what it takes to beat the sitting president.
When Donald Trump won the election last year, porn star Cherie DeVille (whos running alongside rapper Coolio) says she sobbed. I didnt cry because I hated [Trump] specifically, I cried because of what I felt that meant for the direction our country was going in. Like many liberals who saw their world crumble because of Trumps election, DeVille found herself melting down. But then she decided to do something about it.
DeVille, whos starred in such videos as A$$ Planet and Hot Tub Hottie, says she was inspired to run for office out of her personal frustration for the current political climate. The porn star then, ironically, went into full blown hypocrite mode. Were voting for people as if were on a reality television show, and my concern is if we continue to purely vote for celebrities, or political figures, or the most entertaining, theyre not always going to be quality politicians, DeVille told ITK on Tuesday. So vote for the porn star! Thatll fix it!
The 39-year-old porn star said she was (surprise, surprise) going to run as a Democrat. If our criteria now for becoming a political official is minor celebrity, I have that, says DeVille, who boasts 190,000 Twitter followers. I feel like I can be potentially what Im feeling the American people for better or for worse want, which is interesting news, scandalous news, you know, not boring political news.
But at the same time [I can] do what the American people really need, she continues, which is having a person with integrity, and having someone listen to the people, and actually care about America in public office.
A bright flash ripped across Phoenix, Arizonas night sky last night, terrifying residents. The mysterious flash was caught on security cameras as concerned onlookers watched.
The remarkable bright object was spotted by numerous people in the area, with reports streaming in from Arizona and the surrounding states, including California, Nevada, Utah, and New Mexico.
Subtle would be far from the correct way to describe that bright flash of light streaking downward. But, based on the fact that it is falling from the sky, scientists say that it was more than likely nothing more than a big hunk of space junk burning up in the atmosphere.
But that didnt stop people from taking to social media to share their experiences with the world. Something BRILLIANT just flew across the Phoenix sky around 8:30 this evening! the City of Phoenix, AZ tweeted last night. Check out what our Phoenix City Cam Captured!

We have not seen a leadership reversal, a Hindenburg Omen and a Titanic Syndrome signal all appear simultaneously since just before the last financial crisis. Does this mean that a stock market crash is imminent? Not necessarily, but as I have been writing about quite a bit recently, the markets are certainly primed for one. On Wednesday, the Dow fell another 138 points, and that represented the largest single day decline that we have seen since September. Much more importantly, the downward trend that has been developing over the past week appears to be accelerating. Just take a look at this chart. Could we be right on the precipice of a major move to the downside?
John Hussman certainly seems to think so. He is the one that pointed out that we have not seen this sort of a threefold sell signal since just before the last financial crisis. The following comes from Business Insider
On Tuesday, the number of New York Stock Exchange companies setting new 52-week lows climbed above the number hitting new highs, representing a leadership reversal that Hussman says highlights the deterioration of market internals. Stocks also received confirmation of two bearish market-breadth readings known as the Hindenburg Omen and the Titanic Syndrome.
Hussman says these three readings havent occurred simultaneously since 2007, when the financial crisis was getting underway. It happened before that in 1999, right before the dot-com crash. Thats not very welcome company.
In fact, every time we have seen these three signals appear all at once there has been a market crash.
Will things be different this time?
We shall see.
If you are not familiar with a Hindenburg Omen or the Titanic Syndrome, here are a couple of...

Last week I did a podcast on the fact that American was bleeding out. We are losing our personal liberty at an astounding rate. The tighter packed we are into suburban life the faster these freedoms are draining. It is my goal to set as many people as possible, myself included, on a course towards self reliance.
The state of Alaska is preparing for a potential war with North Korea. The Alaskans are being urged not to evacuate, though should Kim Jong-Un launch a missile toward Alaska, it would only take 20 minutes to get there.
Emergency planners in Alaska have warned it will not attempt evacuations if a warhead is fired because time would not be on their side. Jeremy Zidek, from the states disaster planning team, will urge locals to find shelter rather than risk being caught in the open. He also urged families to have an emergency stash of food and water, flashlights and radios, and medical supplies including the anti-radiation pill Prussian Blue medication that lessens the radiological impacts on your body.
Tensions have escalated lately on the Korean peninsula after a series of missile tests in the hermit kingdom and propagandized media threats were made sentencing president Donald Trump to death. Tyrant Kim Jong-un has since threatened a nuclear holocaust and there are fears the regime will soon have a missile capable of reaching the US mainland.
Zidek admitted that the states defensive facilities could be picked for an attack. Alaska is home to Fort Greely, where the US has interceptor rockets designed to destroy incoming intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs). The state also has missile defenses at the Pacific Spaceport Complex as well as radar warning systems at Clear Air Force Station.
We have the missile defense system here. We have missiles and radars in a number of different locations, Zidek said. Perhaps there would be some type of attack on those military facilities to try to hinder our abilit...

One shop still had power, and the manager said hungry customers had been pouring in all night. I moved into a new unit and just realized my oven doesnt work, I
We all know about the joys of Black Friday and the inconvenience that comes with it as well, which give us more reasons to just stay at home. Check out the post below and find out why its best to just stay inside during Black Friday!
It confounds me to no end that every Thanksgiving, a day in which we give thanks for all that we have, is immediately followed by a day created by retailers to prey on us by luring us in with the prospect of deep discounts on items on our wish lists. There are various reasons why it is better to just stay in the comfort of our home rather than head to the mall, which is like entering a mosh pit at a rock concert. If you dont mind getting bumped, shoved, and people violating your personal space for a doorbuster item, then go ahead, its your choice. But for those people who are having second thoughts of going out this Black Friday, here are some of the best reasons why you should sit this one out.
A 10% discount on a sweater is not reason enough to go out and cut the holiday short. Some people simply just want to stay home and sleep in. Waking up 4 A.M. or earlier just to get to the sales or wait in line for doorbusters is not worth it.
You probably still have a hangover from celebrating Thanksgiving and it is not the right time to drive or go shopping. It is better to spend more time with...
The holidays can be a great time to add those much-needed supplies to your prepper stockpile! Check out how you can learn how to stock up on the essentials!
While millions of Americans are throwing their money away on a bunch of useless garbage, smart preppers are using the season to become better prepared. For those looking to build their emergency stockpiles, this is one of the best times of the year to get started. Most grocery stores are offering deep discounts on certain types of food this time of year; fortunately for preppers, these items store very well for long periods of time, making this the perfect opportunity to grow your emergency stockpiles.
Start researching who is selling what, then go online to see if you can find coupons to further increase your savings. Websites like the Krazy Coupon Lady allow you to break it down by store and product.
