Reports in Der Spiegel that US agencies bugged European council building 'reminiscent of cold war', says German minister
The prospects for a new trade pact between the US and the European Union worth hundreds of billions have suffered a severe setback following allegations that Washington bugged key EU offices and intercepted phonecalls and emails from top officials.

Every survival situation will require tools, the oldest and most versatile of tools is the edged weapon or blade. What type of blade/s to have are often a matter of great debate. So here's my thought on the matter.
You should maintain three cutting blades as a minimum, the first being a locking foldable knife which can be operated with a single hand. When closed it should fit mostly inside the closed hand. This blade will serve many purposes, closed it provides a weight and solid…

When retired FBI agent, the now deceased Ted Gunderson, reportedly told a gathering of militia members that the federal government had set up 1,000 internment camps across the country, I had no trouble believing his statement because there is ample documentation to support his statement (e.g. REX 84, Operation Garden Plot and now the NDAA). However, when Gunderson reported… Continue

As many of You know, I have been managing at the behest of a friend. Sadly, My friend cannot pay the rent any longer on My 16X16 cabin ($300 mo/inc util, plus phone & interweb) and there is no work for old arthritic ladies in these parts.
So... I will likely be packing My stuff and figuring out what to do with My two cats - breaking My heart to have no place for the two I rescued from certain death at the shelter, and who I adore with all My heart... Maybe I will hitchhike to…

I hate to do this but I feel obligated to share, as the story unfolds, my creeping concern that the NSA leaker is not who he purports to be, and that the motivations involved in the story may be more complex than they appear to be.
This is in no way to detract from the great courage of Glenn Greenwald in reporting the story, and the gutsiness of the Guardian in showcasing this kind of reporting, which is a service to America that US… Continue
Of the three primary environments the city would have to be in my opinion the most challenging. You will have little access to natural resources, the population density will ensure the rampant spread of disease and hostile encounters. Infestations of many types of insect, vermin and animals will also compound the problems you will face with water and food stores.
If you live in a city you will need multiple plans, the get out of Dodge plan. The let the storm pass and get out of Dodge…
SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS!!! Mark Matheny June 24, 2013 Have you noticed the size of the packages at your local food store lately? In order for companies to hide the effects of inflation (the printing and adding of money into the supply of money), companies are simply reducing the amount of ounces given, and still charging the same…
We will simplify the planning process by breaking down to three survival environments: 1) Inner city. Here you have little or no natural resources, city services provide most or all of the basic needs such as water, sanitation, and the energy sources used to cook and heat. The local population density is high, meaning resource competition will be high. 2) Urban. This would be neighborhoods removed from the city yards and some degree of natural foliage. Most basic services are provided by…
