Long-Term Storage Hot Dogs, Canned Freeze Dried BBQ Beef, Canned Green Coffee Beans

These are a few of the many new products available in the Safecastle Royal store (buyers club members be sure to log-in to see your member-discounted pricing) ...

Yoders Canned hot dogs
for long-term storage (10 years + ... maybe +++)!!!

Carefully developed by one of our best suppliers over the course of the last two years to be just the right combination of all-U.S. ingredients--these dogs taste great and are good to store for a LONG time.

They are already very popular--we're trying to keep up with demand.

______

Other newer products in the Safecastle Royal store--actually the green coffee beans are back after being unavailable for several months. Canned green coffee beans are really the only way to store coffee for years (if you like good-tasting coffee at least).
______

Also ... two new Mountain House products available for the first time in #10 cans--
BBQ Sauce w/ Beef and Breakfast Skillet (both of them delicious in your wrap tortilla ... or on their own).
______

There are other
new products as well. Check them out, as well as all the popular standbys in the store. I somehow don't think conditions are going to be getting any better for stocking up for dark days ahead.

BTW--the Red Feather canned cheese is going to be available again very soon and the butter will be shortly as well.

Sarajevo Survival Guide

I just came across this instructive, easy-to-digest, practical perspective on survival, as arrived at from the experiences of the population of Sarajevo during the longest siege of a capital city in the history of modern warfare (from April 1992 to February 1996).

Real-world insights and tips that we hope to personally never have to experience or to fall back on ...

Our Wadena Tornado

The "Safecastle" family was up in Wadena, Minnesota this weekend to clean-up and do some expedient repairs to my mother's home there.

The evening of June 17, a powerful tornado ripped up a wide section of that town (one of about 39 tornadoes throughout the state that night)--destroying or damaging 262 homes, and several buildings such as the high school, hockey rink, swimming facility, community center, and more. The National Weather Service determined that tornadic winds of up to 170 mph wreaked havoc in an area a mile wide and ten miles long.

Witnessing the damage firsthand, I can testify that it is a divine miracle that no one was killed. And on a more personal level, it was a blessing that my mom's home was spared the kind of damage that occurred to the homes all around hers. It does not hurt, I suppose, that she has spent her life as a faithful servant of God, and as a minister's wife for more than 50 years. (A church in the middle of the destruction was also largely undamaged!)

It was also a blessing that she was not at home, but visiting my brother in Ohio at the time.

Our heartfelt prayers are offered up for the people of Wadena and all the others throughout Minnesota impacted by that outbreak of damaging storms a few days ago. To have one's home or business and neighborhood suddenly destroyed is a test that none of us wants to experience. But when it does come to that--the strength of friends, family, community, and faith does carry us through.

Socialists See Revolutionary Opportunities Today in Global Unrest Due to Economic Upheaval

There are certainly some elements of truth that ring the bell in this piece posted on the World Socialist Web Site. You must read this if you fancy your head being anywhere near the light of day.

Know at the very least that there are those itching to organize violent revolution just about everywhere throughout the West this summer, taking advantage of growing dissatisfaction with the status quo.

Be very careful about who you throw your allegiance to if and when things start getting frothy, my friends.

Excerpt: Calliol states, “This crisis is directly connected to the end of the world order as we know it since 1945—and even earlier since the European colonisation process. Therefore, the whole global fabric centred on the US for 60 years is slowly collapsing, generating turmoil of all sorts.”

Asked where social unrest will end, she replies, “War. It’s as simple and as horrifying as that.”

Survival Guru at GlockTalk

Have I mentioned that recently the good folks at GlockTalk.com approached me and asked if I would consider serving as their resident Survival & Preparedness Expert, answering questions and moderating that particular forum on their site?

Well, I said OK. It was flattering. A survival expert! Well, actually, I guess I see myself more as a preparedness expert if you must know. And the fact is, GlockTalk is a popular, well-established forum--with something like 2000 users online at any given time.

(You know, isn't everyone a survival expert in their own right? ... until they fail to survive any longer.)

Anyway, it's kind of fun. I get to help folks direct their thinking in ways that may aid them in working through some difficult situations or confusing thought processes. There have been some good questions submitted and I've done my best trying to deliver succinct, entertaining, and informative responses.

See what you think:

Is it just me?

I'm tired. I'm sad and disgusted.

I'm pretty much resigned to the dismal prognosis for our country that is settling over the hearts and minds of all Americans these days.

I've been very actively fighting this for nearly a decade now. What was apparent to some of us that long ago is now at last evident to everybody. That is, the future sucks--for any number of reasons.

I have grown weary of talking about it and how it will come about. Because the fact is, we are now there at the portal of the precipice. Watch your next step--it's a doozy!

There's of course at least a little politics in all of us. But for me, all these years, my main focus has been on helping to get people prepared for what I figured was going to come sooner or later. The overall momentum downhill never did slow up much through the years, and certainly never reversed course.

Well, at least, we've had ample time to make ready for the storms. Perhaps, by the grace of God, we'll have just a bit more time.

Stay safe.

Foreclosure Rates Surge--Biggest Jump in 5 Years

LOS ANGELES – A record number of U.S. homes were lost to foreclosure in the first three months of this year, a sign banks are starting to wade through the backlog of troubled home loans at a faster pace, according to a new report.


RealtyTrac Inc. said Thursday that the number of U.S. homes taken over by banks jumped 35 percent in the first quarter from a year ago. In addition, households facing foreclosure grew 16 percent in the same period and 7 percent from the last three months of 2009.

US Military: Massive Oil Shortages Within Five Years

Well, we knew this was coming, but it still seems to be sneaking up on us ...

US military warns oil output may dip causing massive shortages by 2015

(Excerpt:)

The US military has warned that surplus oil production capacity could disappear within two years and there could be serious shortages by 2015 with a significant economic and political impact.


The energy crisis outlined in a Joint Operating Environment report from the US Joint Forces Command, comes as the price of petrol in Britain reaches record levels and the cost of crude is predicted to soon top $100 a barrel.


"By 2012, surplus oil production capacity could entirely disappear, and as early as 2015, the shortfall in output could reach nearly 10 million barrels per day," says the report, which has a foreword by a senior commander, General James N Mattis.
