1. Need some light in a pinch and a candle alone won’t cut it? Grab a soda can and cut open the sides, fold them out and place the candle in. This will reflect your light and give you some decent protection from the elements.

2. If you ever find yourself without a clean water source grab a piece of cloth and 2 containers. Put the dirty water in one container and run the cloth from it to the empty glass. After a short while you will have filtered, muck free water. Remember to boil..

3. Need to get a cooking fire going with minimal effort? Grab an empty egg carton and place charcoal into the slots. Seal it up, light a corner and enjoy.

4. If the mosquitoes are getting bad you can repel them easily using common household herbs. Since you already have that little cooking fire going, sprinkle some basil or drop some rosemary on the coals. The bugs can’t stand it and will stay far away.

5. How about a solar microwave? Grab a small food box and cut out a fold. Wrap the top in aluminum foil and line the inner box with it as well. Place your food inside and give it some time. You now have a solar charged grilled cheese sandwich.

6. Need to find the right direction home? Get a small sliver of metal such as a needle and rub it against your clothing several times. Place the needle on a leaf and float it in some water. The needle will point you North.

7. And finally, the emergency oil lamp. Grab some old cloth and bundle it up. Take a soda can and fill it about half way with olive oil. Place the cloth into the can and light. You have yourself a makeshift oil lamp that will last hours. “

Lakewood Police Arrest Man In Home-Invasion Where Robber Killed

 

Washington Home Invader Kolled

 

 

 

” Lakewood police have arrested a 19-year-old man they believe participated in a home-invasion robbery that left one of the suspected robbers dead.

  Duprea Wilson of Seattle was charged Thursday with 12 felonies, first-degree manslaughter, robbery, kidnapping and assault among them.

  Three men knocked on the door and then forced their way inside when the man, who didn’t recognize them, tried to close the door, police said. One of the intruders was armed with a knife, another with a gun.

  They beat the man, who needed stitches to close a head wound, and cut his wife’s hand after dragging her out of the bathtub, court records show. The intruders then tied up the couple before searching the house for valuables, police said.

  At one point the robbers went outside, and the man was able to free himself and lock the front door. He and his wife then retreated to their bedroom and locked that door as well, court records show.

  The bandits broke through the front door, firing a shot as they did so, the records show. The man retrieved his own gun from a lock box and fired two shots when a pair of the bandits forced the bedroom door open, court records show.

  An hour or so later in Federal Way, police were called to the scene of a dead man with gunshot wounds in the parking lot of an apartment complex. Lakewood police believe that man, 19-year-old Taijon Voorhees, was one of the home invaders. “

What Food Banks Need Most (And What They Get Too Much Of)

 

what food banks need most

 

 

” Is there a food drive going on near you? Every day for the last week, our kindergartener has loaded up her purple backpack with groceries for her class’s food drive. Boxes of whole-grain pasta and jars of tomato sauce, brownie mix and canola oil, all easier-to-make versions of meals I regularly fix for our family. But I got to thinking, are these really the most useful things to donate?

  When we lived in Rome, there was an immigrant woman who used to sit on a plastic crate outside the grocery store. She wore a shawl around her shoulders and scarf on her head. Sometimes her daughter would be there too, a girl about eight years old with long dark hair. Almost always I’d be pushing our big blue double stroller, two apple-cheeked American toddlers in tow. Almost the woman or child would ask for food, pleading in Italian.

  Yes, I’d nod. I’ll help. At least I’ll try. 

  Not speaking Italian well enough to understand the details of their situation, not to mention the complexities of the Italian social system, I’d do what I thought was best. Pick up a few things they could eat right then, plus a few dinner items to take home. Ready-made sandwiches, bottles of milk, string cheeses and fruit. For later, pasta (it was Italy after all), tomatoes, maybe a sliver of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, the good stuff. It was the best I could do without knowing anything about them. Did they have electricity? Any food allergies? I’ll never know.

  But now we’re in North Carolina and I can do more. A lot more. Today I spoke with two sources, the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina plus two staffers at The Salvation Army food bank in Durham. Here’s what I learned.

 

WHO GOES TO A FOOD BANK

  Picture a homeless man, an elderly woman or a single mom with three kids but not just babies: a toddler, a second grader and a fourteen-year-old. Maybe they live in an apartment and receive food stamps on a monthly basis, maybe it’s about $200 worth. With food stamps, there are restrictions on what they can buy at the store and almost always, they’ll run out anyway. That’s why they’re at the food bank. The electricity may have just been turned off. There might not be water. Or maybe there’s no apartment at all. Many are in crisis, living in hotels or on the street.

 

WHAT FOOD BANKS NEED MOST (AND WHAT THEY GET TOO MUCH OF)

  Storage space is often in short supply at food banks, so prioritization is key.

  1. Canned meats: Think beyond tuna & soup, which food banks get tons of. Instead go for canned beef, canned ham, canned chicken, canned salmon. Or hearty ready-to-go meals like beef stew and chili with meat.
  2. Canned vegetables: Everyone donates green beans. Instead, give potatoes, carrots, spinach, peas or any other veggies your family likes.
  3. Canned fruit: Not pineapple. This is the most commonly donated fruit. Any other fruit, particularly those in fruit juice without extra sugar, would be great. Dried fruit works too (raisins, etc.)
  4. Boxes of rice (bags can tear)
  5. Low-sugar cereal like plain Cheerios or Raisin Bran
  6. Peanut butter
  7. Instant oatmeal, instant grits
  8. Cans of beans
  9. Pasta, pasta sauce
  10. Biscuit mix, or any mix you only add water to
  11. Cans, cartons or boxes of powered and evaporated milk
  12. Snack items for kids to take to school: juice boxes, applesauce containers, granola bars
  13. Diapers in sizes above newborn, plus wipes
  14. Toiletries: toothbrushes, soap, toothpaste, lotion, shampoo & conditioner, Chapstick (consider someone living outside this time of year)
  15. Feminine hygiene products: unscented pads will be most universally used, not tampons
  16. Spices like cinnamon, oregano, basil, salt, pepper
  17. Sliced bread. It’s got a long shelf life but always goes immediately.
  18. Bags of apples or potatoes. Ditto.
  19. Chocolate. It’s not a necessity but just a pick-me-up that I would sure appreciate, especially when it comes time to fill stockings.
  20. Consider donating reusable shopping bags. It takes a lot of humility for people to come to a food bank and since they’ll likely be walking home or taking public transportation, it’s nice to at least blend in.

 WHAT I DIDN’T REALIZE ABOUT FOOD BANKS

  • A lot of people have diabetes in this group. Consider low-sugar dietary restrictions.
  • Some food banks have a recording (or a live person) who will explain their top needs of the moment by phone.
  • Cans and boxes are sturdier than bags. By the time families are receiving the food, it’s been handled A LOT and packaging needs to be strong enough to hold up. One food bank said never bring anything in glass, ever.
  • Pop-top cans are ideal; particularly for those living on the streets.
  • Think about weekends and school breaks. Kids who qualify for free lunches typically receive breakfast at school too and when schools are out for holidays or summer, these families need more support.
  • Many families are in crisis at this time in their lives and food banks often work in tandem with churches or other non-profit programs to get them back on their feet. The Salvation Army in Durham, for example, coordinates with First Baptist Church’s “Jobs for Life” program. Recipients get interview training and in some cases, a ride to the mall where they’re coached on asking for job applications.

  These are the top priorities for the food banks I spoke with in my area. But there are still plenty of other things to give–and keep in mind what’s needed here might vary from your area, and definitely from season to season. “

From Off The Grid News

 

 

 

 

” If you could only buy five long guns, which specific long guns should you buy – and why?

  Here, we’ll answer that question in detail:

1. Ruger 10/22 .22 LR

  This is simply the most successful .22 semi-automatic rifle in production. First introduced in 1964, the Ruger 10/22 has gained a stout reputation for being durable, reliable, accurate and easily customizable. In fact, the Ruger 10/22 is the second-most easily customizable long gun on the market, second only to the AR series of rifles.

  The 10/22 comes equipped with a 10-round magazine, but after-market 25-round banana magazines and even drum magazines are highly available for greater capacity.

  If you can only have five long guns, you need a .22 rifle — without question. Semi-automatic .22s are always a good choice due to their high capacity, and they’re enjoyable to shoot. Another popular and reputable .22 rifle is the Marlin 60; however, the Marlin 60 is tube-fed, resulting in slower reloading times and less capacity, and is also nowhere near as customizable as the 10/22.

2. Mossberg 500 Field Combo 12 gauge

  The Mossberg 500 field combo shotgun is one of the most versatile shotguns available. A field combo kit comes with two barrels: an 18.5-inch barrel for self-defense and a 28-inch vented rib barrel for hunting and target shooting. The two barrels are very easy to interchange, essentially giving you a two-in-one package. The 12 gauge is also the most popular shotgun round on the market, so if you’re going to stock up on shotgun shells, the 12 gauge is without question the one to buy first.

  Ultimate Tactical Self-Defense And Hunting Weapon That Doesn’t Require A Firearms License!

  The Mossberg 500 is one of the most popular and reputable pump action shotguns ever produced, and is intended for use in harsh conditions. It is second in popularity only by a razor thin margin to the Remington 870 in America. The 870 also comes in field combo kits, so why the Mossberg and not the Remington?

  Though personal preference is always the deciding factor, there are a few factors that arguably push the 500 just over the 870 in my view. The Mossberg 500/590 series is known for being the only pump action shotguns to pass the US Army’s Mil-Spec 3443E, which is a brutal torture test of putting more than 3,000 buckshot rounds through each shotgun in harsh conditions. The safety on the 500 is also naturally ambidextrous as it is placed on the top-rear portion of the receiver rather than the rear of the trigger guard of the 870. Lastly, there have been some reports that the Remington 870 series has seen a dip in quality in recent years. While these reports are all people’s opinions and millions of Americans still swear by their 870s and will for the decades to come, the Mossberg 500 remains a solid pump shotgun in today’s market.

3. Colt AR-15 5.56x45mm.

  The most popular rifle sold off the shelves today is the AR-15, and for a variety of reasons: inexpensive ammo, ergonomics, high-capacity magazines, availability of parts, low recoil, and accuracy. The AR-15 is also perhaps the most versatile rifle on this list. It can be used for hunting (an AR-10 .308 would be better for larger game such as elk), is an excellent combat weapon, and in all regards, is a modern-day musket. All of the roles that were fulfilled by the musket in the Colonial-era have been fulfilled by the AR-15 in today’s modern age.

  There are dozens upon dozens of different manufacturers of high quality AR-15s, but Colt has been making AR-15s for decades and they are held in high regard today. Colt makes a variety of different AR-15 models and variants, with some having different features than others.

4. Winchester 1894 .30-30

  The most popular sporting rifle in American history is the Winchester 1894 in .30-30, one of John Browning’s greatest rifle designs and a top seller for Winchester. The .30-30 lever action is a very handy rifle to have and has become an American icon. The .30-30 is a popular American round allowing for availability of ammo and is also known for being an excellent deer hunting round. The 1894 itself is a very slim but robust rifle. This makes it an excellent truck gun, as well as for a light rifle to pack while scouting or hiking out in the woods.

  Lever-action rifles can be easily customizable to give them a more tactical appearance and function in stark contrast to the more classic appearances from the Western days. While the Winchester 1894 should not take the place of your AR-15 as a primary combat weapon in today’s era, it’s still a neat and handy little rifle that is often overlooked.

5. Winchester Model 70 .30-06

  Just like the 1894, the Model 70 is a legend and has always been a top seller for Winchester.  Winchester Model 70s, especially the pre-64 editions, are widely regarded as some of the highest quality production rifles ever made. The Model 70 has rightly earned the now well-known nickname “Rifleman’s Rifle.”

  The .30-06 is one of the most prolific and enduring rifle cartridges ever sold in America. It’s an excellent hunting round that can be used on both medium and large game. You couldn’t ask for a more high quality hunting rifle than a scoped Winchester Model 70 in .30-06.

9-1-1 Caller Says Gun Held By Cleveland 12-Year-Old Shot By Police Was ‘Probably Fake’

 

 

 

 

 

”  The man who called 9-1-1 before a 12-year-old boy was shot by police told dispatchers the gun was “probably fake.”

  The man told police he was at the park near Cudell Recreation Center and could see “a guy with a pistol” on the swing set pulling the weapon from his pants and “scaring the s–t out of everyone.”

” There’s a guy with a pistol, and it’s probably fake,” he said quickly, “but he’s pointing it everybody.”

  When police arrived, a group of people were sitting around a table under a gazebo next to the rec center’s parking lot. A rookie officer in the car saw the pistol sitting on the table, and watched the boy grab it and put it in his waistband, Jeff Follmer said.

  The officer got out of the car and told the boy to raise his hands. Instead, police said, the boy reached into his waistband and grabbed the pistol.

  The officer fired two shots, at least one of which hit the boy in the stomach.

  The boy was rushed to MetroHealth Medical Center in serious condition, though his condition was not immediately known Saturday night. “

” Wanna see a world-record stunt? Something crazy and mind-blowing and death-defying? How does a tractor-trailer breaking the Guinness World Record for jump length tickle you? Oh, and for good measure, a Lotus Formula 1 car. Yeah, that’ll do.

  So here’s the setup: Mike Ryan, the guy who can race a big rig up Pikes Peak or drift it around a racetrack as if he was driving a normal-size car, designed the stunt and is the wheelman in the truck. Martin Ivanov pilots the F1 car. Both guys have extensive experience as stunt drivers in various Bond, Bourne, and Fast and Furious movies. In other words: these are very experienced professionals, so definitely don’t try this at home. “

The Federal Emergency Management Agency: Floods, Failures, And Federalism

 

 

” The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is the lead federal agency for disaster preparedness, response, and relief. FEMA’s budget fluctuates from year to year, but spending has trended sharply upwards in recent decades. The agency spent $22 billion in fiscal 2013 and $10 billion in fiscal 2014. The main activity of FEMA is distributing aid to individuals and state and local governments after natural disasters, such as hurricanes, floods, and earthquakes. In addition, the agency provides ongoing grants to the states for disaster preparedness, and it operates the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

  FEMA’s response to some major disasters has been slow, disorganized, and profligate. The agency’s actions have sometimes been harmful, such as when it has blocked the relief efforts of other organizations. FEMA’s dismal response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005 dramatized the agency’s bureaucratic dysfunction. FEMA’s grants for disaster preparedness are known for wastefulness. As for the NFIP, its insurance subsidies are spurring development in flood-prone areas, which in turn is increasing the damage caused by floods. The NFIP also encourages an expansion of federal regulatory control over local land-use planning.

  Federalism is supposed to undergird America’s system of handling disasters, particularly natural disasters. State, local, and private organizations should play the dominant role. Looking at American history, many disasters have generated large outpourings of aid by individuals, businesses, and charitable groups.

  Today, however, growing federal intervention is undermining the role of private institutions and the states in handling disasters. Policymakers should reverse course and begin cutting FEMA. Ultimately, the agency should be closed down by ending aid programs for disaster preparedness and relief and privatizing flood insurance. “

 

How Car Insurance Just Inadvertently Provided A Revolutionary New Way To Fight Speeding Tickets

 

 

 

 

 

” The total number of people who receive speeding tickets is 41,000,000 a year with an average cost of $152.00 each. That is 1 in every 5 licensed drivers in the US.

  The total number of speeding tickets paid each year $6,232,000,000.

  Police and judges are completely dependent upon ‘catching’ people speeding. They need you to speed in order to make their salaries. This gives them a positive incentive to keep this revenue stream going which can lead to less than ethical means to collecting revenue.

  Sure, driving excessively fast can be a hazard on the road, but how many of these tickets issued are actually legitimate.

  In April the Free Thought Project reported a story out of McKinney, TX where officers knew their radar guns were reporting significantly higher speeds than drivers were actually driving.

  Their solution? No need to fix the equipment, just keep writing tickets.

  Radar guns malfunction all the time. Regular maintenance must be properly conducted in order for the devices clock the driver’s precise speed.

  But what about Laser guns, LiDAR? Those are 100% accurate, right? Wrong.

  In 2005 a BBC program Inside Out demonstrated how the LiDAR speed gun most commonly used in the UK, the LTI 20.20 could create exaggerated readings.

  A retired Sergeant, who used to be part of this racket explains speeding tickets as such, “’Indiscriminate revenue gathering’ It is absolutely disgusting. The government and the Police Force need to hang their heads in shame.”

  The retired officer’s number one reason for why you should dispute all traffic tickets, is that often the charges are incorrect or the evidence is illegally or incorrectly gathered.

  Knowing that police collect these billions through incorrect, fallacious, and often illegal practices, it has still been hard to beat these tickets. Until now.

  Insurance companies have come up with a novel way to lower driver premiums by installing monitors in the vehicles of their customers.”

Saudi Husband Tells His Bride He Wants A Divorce During Their Wedding After Seeing Her Face For The First Time

 

 

 

” A Saudi groom has divorced his bride on their wedding night after seeing her face for the first time when the photographer asked them to pose for pictures.

  The couple, from the Western Saudi town of Medinah, had agreed to marry each other despite having not met face to face – a popular custom in certain Middle Eastern countries.

  But when the bride removed her veil and smiled for the camera, her new husband leapt to his feet in disgust. 

‘ You are not the girl I want to marry,’ he declared. ‘You are not the one I had imagined. I am sorry, but I divorce you.’ “

Drones Now Patrol Half Of Mexico Border

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The U.S. government now patrols nearly half the Mexican border by drones alone in a largely unheralded shift to control desolate stretches where there are no agents, camera towers, ground sensors or fences, and it plans to expand the strategy to the Canadian border.

  It represents a significant departure from a decades-old approach that emphasizes boots on the ground and fences. Since 2000, the number of Border Patrol agents on the 1,954-mile border more than doubled to surpass 18,000 and fencing multiplied nine times to 700 miles.

  Under the new approach, Predator Bs sweep remote mountains, canyons and rivers with a high-resolution video camera and return within three days for another video in the same spot, according to two officials with direct knowledge of the effort on condition of anonymity because details have not been made public.

  The two videos are then overlaid for analysts who use sophisticated software to identify tiny changes — perhaps the tracks of a farmer or cows, perhaps those of immigrants who entered the country illegally or a drug-laden Hummer, they said.

  About 92 percent of drone missions have shown no change in terrain, but the others raised enough questions to dispatch agents to determine if someone got away, sometimes by helicopter because the area is so remote. The agents look for any sign of human activity — footprints, broken twigs, trash.

  About 4 percent of missions have been false alarms, like tracks of livestock or farmers, and about 2 percent are inconclusive. The remaining 2 percent offer evidence of illegal crossings from Mexico, which typically results in ground sensors being planted for closer monitoring.”

The US Government Doesn’t Want You To Know There’s A Run On Silver Bullion

 

 

Gold Coin Demand US Mint

 

 

 

” It looks like the entire world is spitting out gold and silver as an investment or hedge, as the prices of both precious metals were tumbling in the past few weeks. Well, at least the demand for gold and silver ‘paper’ isn’t anymore what it used to be, but the demand for physical silver is really booming.

  Reports have reached us from Germany that the demand for silver is really surging, and this is an interesting sentiment meter because Germany usually acts as one of the main distribution centers for the European Union. Several large bullion dealers have seen the demand for silver increase, and in just the next few days after last week’s crash, almost all dealers sold as many silver coins in just three days as they usually do in an entire month.

  Now you can try to dismiss this easily by saying that the Germans and the rest of the European Union are simply preparing for an upcoming implosion of the Eurozone, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. The US Mint recently had to announce that there were no more silver Eagles in inventory, and that it would have to suspend deliveries for new orders. This announcement hasn’t been made public (why not, US Mint? Are you trying to keep the people dumb?) but was only sent to larger bullion dealers in the USA. “

Man, 71, Fatally Shoots Man Who Attacked His Wife: Police

 

 

 

” A 71-year-old man fatally shot a would-be robber who knocked down his wife and tried to steal her necklace in a Dallas grocery store parking lot Tuesday night, police say.

“ My first thing was screaming, “who shot him, who shot him?””, said Yadira Juarez, a witness, “That’s when the older guy was like I did.”

  Police said Ronnie Lummus and his wife were in front of Aldi Food Market in the 3100 block of Forest Lane in North Dallas Tuesday Night.

New Device Detects Nearby Cops, Officers Not Happy With Product

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A new car device called “Target Blu Eye,” developed and sold by the Dutch company Target Automotive, advertises the ability to warn drivers of nearby police officers, and cops are upset about this.

  The device is marketed as a way to warn drivers of nearby emergency vehicles which have not turned on their emergency lights or sirens, signalling their proximity to the driver.

  Blu Eye works by monitoring frequencies used by various emergency vehicles, including ambulances, firetrucks, and police cars, and then alerts the driver to the presence of such vehicles.  According to the Free Thought Project, the monitor also works when radars and other equipment used by police even when the equipment is turned off.  Even a turned off police radio on a foot-patrol is reportedly detected by the device.

  Dan Bizley, chief engineer for Blu Eye, said, though it warns people of nearby emergency vehicles, it cannot distinguish between the type of emergency vehicle.  “As it does not distinguish between a police car, ambulance or fire engine responding to an emergency,” said Bizley, “this particular device is sadly just as likely to be bought by a minority of motorists who wish to evade being caught behaving illegally.”

  Because Blu Eye does not distinguish or  interfere with the signals and frequencies used by emergency vehicles, there is no legal precedent to make the device illegal, at least in parts of Europe where the device is sold.”

Phoenix Bank Robber Killed

 

 

” The duo behind a rash of Phoenix bank robberies is out of business, with one now dead and the other under arrest, thanks to the efforts of an armed local businessman.

  On Wednesday, the Desert Schools Federal Credit Union was targeted by Lyndell Cherry, age 29 and Vincent Jones, age 21, who entered at around 2 p.m. and demanded money. The two had left the keys in the ignition and the engine of their getaway vehicle running, a mistake which proved to be their undoing.

  While the robbery was taking place, one credit union employee was able to call Sean Quaid, who owns a business next door to the credit union and told him what was happening. Quaid grabbed his gun and ran outside.  After determining which was the likely vehicle of the perpetrators, Quaid removed the keys from the ignition.

  When attempting their getaway, Cherry and Jones ran outside to their car and found they had no keys. They went back inside to see if they might have dropped them somewhere along the way, even going as far as searching a woman’s purse inside to see if she might have picked them up.

  With time running out, the robbers ran back outside and accosted a couple in a Chevy pickup, with Jones pointing his gun and demanding their vehicle. At that point, Quaid stepped in, ordering the felonious pair to stop. It was then that Cherry reportedly spun around and aimed his gun at Quaid, who fired first, striking Cherry. “

How To Survive The Coming Chaos: Hope For The Best, But Prepare For The Worst

 

 

 

 

” I have long dabbled in the preparedness mindset but never really paid too much attention to it all until my town was hit hard by a mile-wide, category-three tornado that destroyed or severely damaged hundreds of homes in my immediate area. Ordered to evacuate my home for several days the realization that things can change very quickly and that ‘bad things’ can and do happen to otherwise completely normal people has compelled me to re-evaluate my own preparedness for a wide variety of possible scenarios.

  One cannot be hurt by being prepared for whatever may happen, but one will undoubtedly be hurt if one has not prepared for the unexpected. That has become my mindset and how I now approach the concept of preparedness. It just makes good sense to have plans and preparations in place for the unknown. It is every man’s duty to provide and protect his family no matter what happens and being prepared is the ultimate fulfillment of that duty as well as being a valuable insurance policy against a great many possible threats.

  Ideally, one should plan to hunker down and not leave your own home unless you absolutely have to. This is ‘bugging in.’ Planning around this allows you to stock large stockpiles of water, food, and other supplies without any major convenience. Know your neighbors well, and this will allow you to have a small base of supplies and a network of people in the immediate vicinity that can help each other out if things go south quickly for whatever reason. Be a good neighbor now and they’ll be an invaluable neighbor then. I live in a cul-de-sac and know everyone on the block fairly well. I bring them gifts of garden produce in the summers, wave at them when I drive by, and invite them all over when I have my big backyard birthday bashes. We have helped each other out at various times and I would feel comfortable turning to them for assistance or access to tools etc. if I had no choice. Such nominal relationships could come in very handy some day. You never know.

” A grandfather shot back and is believed to have killed a suspect in a home-invasion and attempted rape of his teen granddaughter on Monday night, Robeson County Sheriff’s officials said.

  The grandfather was also shot – but  he also managed to shoot the 2 other suspects in the home-invasion and attempted rape, said Maj. Anthony Thompson with the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office.
  
  The incident started around 10 pm at a house on Yedda Road in Lumberton on Monday night when someone knocked on the home of the grandfather, his wife and their 19-year-old granddaughter, according to the sheriff’s office.

   Two of three men – all wearing black clothes, ski masks and gloves — stormed into the house and demanded money, officials said.

  The grandfather and his wife ended up in the back of the house and were directed at gunpoint to open a safe. The three men were all armed and tried to rape the teen girl, officials said.

  The 67-year-old grandfather managed to grab a gun and shot all three of the suspects. The suspects fired back and the grandfather was hit several times, deputies said.”

  What appears to be a homicide on the streets of Philadelphia has innocent bystanders concerned. The victim lying on the ground quickly changes the emotions of these people by popping up viciously from the crime scene as a severely wounded Zombie. Much to their surprise, they are naturally horrified by the situation causing them to tremble, scream, and even flee the scene. At times, detectives lure in the passerby’s with questioning to make the situation more believable. An off duty security guard stood close by to ensure the safety of the public during the prank.

Watch Moment Woman Knocked Man Out Cold With One Punch After He Asked Her For Sex

” Watch moment woman knocked man out cold with one punch after he asked her for sex

Kondrat Golubev, 32, was also kicked in the groin as he lay on the ground after trying to solicit sex from two women – mistaking them for prostitutes
This video shows a woman knocking a man out cold with one punch after he asked her how much she charged for sex.

Golubev had been clubbing with friends in the city of Atyrau in eastern Kazakhstan, when he went outside for a cigarette and spotted the two girls.

Feeling frisky he approached them and asked them how much they charged.

Club-goer Anatoli Pokrovski, 36, who shot the video of the argument said: “I was outside waiting for my girlfriend who was getting her coat when I saw an argument break out between the man and two women.

“He obviously thought that he was in with a chance, as he tried to ask them for a drink, and when they told him to get lost, he decided to insult them by asking of they were prostitutes and how much it would cost.

“The women were clearly offended but I don’t think he ever expected what happened next, even though the woman really telegraphed the punch. She hit him so hard he fell flat on the pavement.

Mr Pokrovski said the two women then walked off “as if nothing had happened.”

“It was pretty shocking really, but what a punch,” he said.

A police spokesman said: “We have seen the video and believe the woman who threw the punch is trained in some form of martial arts.

“We don’t think she is a boxer because of the way her thumb extends over the top of her index finger.

“But the force behind that punch was so great we suspect this is not the first time she has hit something hard.” “

” How refreshing to hear something resembling candor in the Obama administration’s public pronouncements on the threat from Ebola.

  Problem is, the implications of what is being said with this newfound candor are ominous to say the least, a flabbergasted Rush Limbaugh outlined for his radio listeners yesterday. (Audio)

LIMBAUGH: … Some of the highlights from the congressional hearing on Capitol Hill today, House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee hearing on the Ebola crisis, Dr. Thomas Frieden …. Oh he’s got a new answer here …. I don’t believe this, we gotta play this one! I just basically scanned this one. This Frieden guy, he’s got to want to be thrown out of office here. You just gotta hear this! I don’t want to characterize it before I actually here it. I don’t want to tell you what it says and then have it not say that and look like I got egg on my face.

Here’s the setup: Fred Upton, Republican (of) Michigan, is asking Frieden, the director of the CDC, this question — the question I have is, if other countries are restricting travel from these African countries and, as you said, the fundamental job of the US is to protect American citizens, why can’t we move to a similar ban on travel from these other countries? The exposure rate of 14 days or 15 days is well within the 21 days of incubation and in fact knowing that there 150 people coming a day from those countries, we have not 94 percent in terms of screening at US airports. It seems to me it’s not a fail safe system that’s put into place here.

FRIEDEN (testifying before House subcommittee): Right now we know who’s coming in. If we tried to eliminate travel, the possibility that someone will travel over land, will come from other places, and we don’t know that they’re coming in will mean that we won’t be able to do multiple things. We won’t be able to check them for fever when they leave.

LIMBAUGH: OK, that’s one. There’s part two, just hang on. I know that sounds confusing but there’s a part two. He said, right now we know who’s coming in. Don’t forget that. Right now we know who’s coming in. If we tried to eliminate travel, the possibility that some will travel over land and come from other places and we don’t know that they’re coming will mean that we won’t be able to do multiple things. Do you know what he just said there? …. He just threw amnesty overboard! He, he, he just threw amnesty under the bus. He just threw Obama’s precious open borders under the bus. He says if we try to eliminate travel, then they’re going to come here illegally — acknowledging there are others already doing that! If we try to eliminate travel, the possibility that some will travel over land like the Hoof Express through the Rio Grande River. They’ll come from other places and we don’t know that they’re coming in. It’ll mean that we won’t be able to do multiple things! In other words, what’s already happening will continue to happen and yet some of the people coming might have Ebola! Oh no!  He can’t last much longer! The Chamber of Commerce is having a conniption fit right now. (Democrat congressman) Luis Gutierrez is having a conniption fit right now.

So his answer seems to be, if we don’t let them come in on planes, they’ll come by land over our porous border.

FRIEDEN: Borders can be porous, especially in this part of the world. We won’t be able to check them for fever when they leave. We won’t be able to check them for fever when they arrive. We won’t be able, as we do currently, to take a detailed history to see if they were exposed when they arrive. When they arrive, we wouldn’t be able to impose quarantine as we now can if they have high-risk contact. We wouldn’t be able to obtain detailed locating information which we do now including not only name and date of birth but email addresses, cell phone numbers, address, addresses of friends, so that we could identity and locate them. We wouldn’t be able to provide all of that information as we do now to state and local health departments so that they can monitor them under supervision.

LIMBAUGH: Well, uh, ladies and gentlemen, it sounds to me like he’s saying that if we don’t let them come in on planes, what he’s saying is — unbelievable! — do you understand what he’s saying?! If we don’t let them come in under our auspices, they’re going to come in via illegal immigration and we’re not going to know who they are and it’s going to be even worse. Like the 300,000 children that came in and might have brought enterovirus and like the 12 million who are already here that we want to grant amnesty …

This guy, he has swerved into something, folks, that is totally, unless I’m missing something, I didn’t see this coming. This guy is acknowledging that we do not have a closed border. He’s acknowledging we cannot control who comes into the country. This guy is saying, the Centers for Disease Control director Thomas Frieden is saying, that we cannot close airports. We cannot shut down flights to this country because other parts of our border are wide open with thousands already crossing the border! And we don’t know who they are and we don’t know what they have and we don’t know how sick they might be. And we don’t know  and will have no way of knowing. Oh man! “
