How to kill an opponent with rice, beans or meat
You place the rice, beans or meat… canned meat preferably… in a heavy nylon cotton blend knit sock dropping it down to the closed end. Then take the open end of the sock and tie a knot in it to keep it from slipping out of your hand. Gripping it in your hand by the knot, let the weighted end dangle, and with a swinging motion aim for your opponent’s head and…

The Food Weapon
No folks… not that kind of weapon. Food… or the lack thereof. Food is a weapon that can destroy people, movements, groups, nations… and those with enough power to control food and use it as a weapon… don’t have to lift a finger, fire one bullet or even engage their enemy.
All they have to do is sit back and wait for your emaciated and starved carcass to start rotting. Then what will come true is what Charles Heston said at an NRA Convention… “You can have my rifle… but you’ll have to pry it from my cold, dead hands!” That’s what those who use food as a weapon will do… wait until you’re dead and cold. And as an added bonus… they have that fine firearm you were going to defend your lifestyle with.
The vast majority of Preparedness and Survival people I’ve talked to think firearms and ammunition are the overwhelming primary issue of Preparedness. They have tons of ammunition… and firearms safes almost bursting with firearms. Firearms are important, but I put it percentage wise at about 10 percent of the total Preparedness and Survival equation that I lay out in the Civil Defense Manual. You won’t survive without food and water no matter how many firearms… and how much ammunition you have. Let’s concentrate here on food…
“Roger… I read you four by four…”
I know a crackerjack of a radio guy in my area who could communicate with earth orbiting space stations. He’s a great communications man. I could probably pay for a good portion of my house with what he’s invested in radio equipment.
When my Friend Dan D. asked him what he had for firearms, how much ammunition, how much water and food stored… he said very little food or water… but he has a box of 50 rounds of 9mm for his pistol. No holster. No spare magazines. No rifle. No shotgun. But he said… “I have all the communication equipment a group would ever need!” …and he turned his coke bottle lens eyeglasses back to the attention of his radio equipment.
He’ll most likely spend his time on the radio comparing his weight loss and hunger pangs with others starving like him. For as long as he has the energy to talk on the radio, he’ll be sharing stories of starvation and misery, when the proverbial Shite Hits The Fan scenario happens.
The use for firearms moves up the ladder… especially if A Collapse of Society occurs. But the point is… without water and food… you’re screwed. Too many I know have plenty of ordinance, but little food to sustain themselves. Unbalanced. Deadly. Worse than your worse adversary. This type of person has killed themselves before the problems even start.
Like a story my helicopter flight instructor told me about a guy who took off to fly over the Rocky Mountains in an overloaded helicopter for holiday. He crashed and burned, unable to maneuver because of the much higher elevation thin air and his hyper-burdened helicopter. My instructor went on to make his point… “They didn’t die in the mountains… they were dead when they left the airport!”
His point was… the guy didn’t do what’s called ‘weight and balance’ calculations before he started his journey nor did he calculate the change in his flight envelope and how his machine would maneuver poorly in it. So, he really didn’t prepare for his flight… and he killed himself and his family. Horrible way to go into the afterlife with that guilt.
Like the starvation of the Polish People involved in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising in 1942 by the Nazis. The Nazis simply surrounded this area and waited. This starvation led to the Nazis crushing the valiant fighters. While Germans ate abundantly, the Poles across the border died by the thousands from starvation. Like the baby in the horrendous photo above which I hope shocks you into getting off your duff and buying food. Why? Because food is a weapon!
Assist the Globalists in killing you and your family…
Many Preparedness and Survival people are dead before a Catastrophic Event occurs… just like the helicopter pilot in the above story because they rely too heavily on weapons and ammunition.
If you think the term ‘Globalist’ is coming from under my ‘tin foil hat,’ quit reading this. But they’re out there in one form or another, and don’t for one second, think that they can’t control food production in this country. You can defeat them with a CDM Neighborhood Protection PlanTM (NPP) and the information in the Civil Defense Manual.
Alongside the rifle, shotgun, pistol and other direct force and security survival items in the in the Preparedness arsenal… food ranks about on an equal, along with water. Food and Water are two of the most important of the Critical Life Supplies and Services outlined in the book the “Civil Defense Manual.”
Food is a passive-indirect weapon that has been used throughout history to defeat large and superior conventional and guerilla armies by denying food to them… used to kill off entire populations rebellious to a controlling government by denial of it… used to control populations and force surrender through the cordon and ‘siege’ of fortified and segregated areas of those who don’t have it. I’m not talking just Medieval times… recently, many times over the last decades. Think SELCO. Look him up if you’re new to Preparedness. https://shtfschool.com/
I’ve seen this in Africa… where the tribe in power, in this case the Communist Frelimo in Mozambique, surrounded rival tribal areas and starved their tribal enemies in to the hereafter. Genocide along tribal lines because of their millennia of hatreds. Why? Because food is a weapon!
Preceded by the starvation of the Polish inhabitants during the Warsaw Uprising, and that few people are aware of, was the Soviet Union’s cordon off and blockade of the rich, sought-after Ukraine farming area called the Holodomor of 1932-1933. Translated from the Ukrainian Language, Holodomor literally means “Murder by Starvation.”
During this period, the entire area was surrounded and occupied by Soviet troops and police, who in addition to keeping any Ukrainians from leaving the area… forcibly confiscated all food… going door to door ransacking homes to ensure they got it all.
Ripping up gardens in the process and shipping all livestock and feed to other areas of the Soviet Union, controlled by that disgustingly evil subhuman ‘thing’ Joseph Stalin, in his Communist ‘Utopia.’
Within months, millions died. The Soviets purposely left the rebellious Ukrainians with nothing because they wouldn’t submit to Communism. The dead were left laying where they departed this world. In houses, on city streets and fields… where they dropped over dead from starvation and began the rotting process. Other inhabitants were too weak to bury them. Somewhere between 4,000,000 and 12,500,000 people starved to death.
I’m betting on the latter figure of 12,500,000 dead from starvation… because of Leftist denial that this even happened was purposely cov
ered up by the New York Times and other Leftist controlled news media. The Leftists actually gave a scumbag named Walter Duranty the Pulitzer Prize for his role in keeping this from the world’s attention. Failing that, because the truth eventually got out, they began interference with listing the number of dead. That is still going on to this day… as it has been for almost 90 years. Why? Because food is a weapon!
A ‘Good Communist’ will argue these deaths weren’t that bad because these were ‘Kulaks,’ or landowners, who were wanted nothing to do with Communism, so what’s eight and a half million people plus or minus anyway to their way of thinking? Got to get to that Communist Utopia one way or another. Communist equals Liar. Communism is the equal sharing of misery by all… except for the leaders.
The point is: Ukrainians were disarmed first and their inability to defend themselves or to stop what was happening led to their being starved to death. Americans are armed… but most have no food stored. The globalists won’t need the army and police… Americans are preparing themselves for this starvation disaster… as if they’re eagerly participating in the Globalist’s plans.
From zero to 14 days… starvation
The Americans standing in line of the above photo are hungry and unable to buy food. Not because there wasn’t any… but because they had no money to buy it with. Food is being provided to them… thus the quite orderly line… not a riot and fighting between them.
The 1930s. Different now.
Money is not the problem of the past. That’s not the issue. But I would bet despite that, most Americans still don’t have enough food in their household to feed themselves for more than 14 days after grocery stores are empty and food is not available anywhere. Realistically, that’s probably 4 to 7 days more food than most have. Grocery and ‘big box’ stores are full of food. God awful CHEAP. It sits there.
Americans are not disarmed… to the contrary. Hunters alone in America together surpass the largest armies in the world combined. We have the means to defend ourselves against marauding soldiers who want to take our food. But you have to have something to take.
How long could you sustain you and your family on what you have in your house. Oh yeah, I forgot… ‘the grocery store is just down the street.”
I’ll answer that question… the stored food that the average American family has in their homes would leave them starving in two weeks. That’s counting the refrigerated and frozen foods, that after some Catastrophic Events would spoil before it could be consumed or cooked, if the means to cook it was available.
I went out recently in the big city… which? It doesn’t matter, it’s the same all over… obese Americans are becoming the majority… most, grossly obese. Fat… lots of fat on them. Fat equals food stores. Taking this into consideration, Americans may last longer than most think because of these fat stores they carry around. However, these people will become large rampaging egg-like creatures that will be some of the most violent from lack of food.
After your digestive system absorbs the last of the food passing through it, in about three to four days your body is in full-bore gluconeogenesis of fat… and conversion of muscle glycogen… to lactate… and then to glucose, or commonly referred to as blood sugar. Blood sugar powers your body and when you’re not eating, your body begins feeding itself to you from its own stored fat and muscle.
Something like you’ve heard figuratively said before… “I’m so hungry, my big intestine is eating my little intestine!” …isn’t too far from the literal truth. Around or before that time… you start to realize that you can’t think logically or clearly either. Trying to shoot a compass azimuth in deep dark Africa, a simple task for a normally well-fed soldier, suddenly becomes a huge issue that is agonized over with no concrete conclusion.
Think no natural or propane gas, no electricity… so, no microwave or stove or oven… and the gas grill tank that you should have filled last week, and should have gotten a couple of spares full, but didn’t have time to… running empty. Just like that gas grill propane tank. You thought about buying and stocking water and Emergency Foods… ‘but didn’t have time.’
Our complex food supply system
In addition to taking clean, drinkable potable water for granted, America’s Normal Civility has become increasingly fragile because of one item on the ‘most necessary list’ of Critical Life Supplies and Services… food. Americans and most Industrialized Nations today have moved almost entirely away from the ‘Garden to Table’ existence of past generations… more than ever before in history.
America and the Industrialized World now rely on a food system that is extremely complex and fragile. A ‘Garden to Table’ existence is how families used to live, like the next diagram shows. Families and local farmers grew much of what was consumed and it was locally processed. In the past, food was widely produced by many people on a low-level technical and localized basis.
Food was fresh and immediately available. The food went literally from ‘the garden to their table’ making most people Self-Dependent regarding food. In addition, food stocks were ‘canned’ and stored to live on as a result of bad growing seasons, difficult financial times and for the off-growing seasons. During hard times one winter, our family of eleven ate all our meals from these reserves. My Mother had enough stored food to feed a small army.
America and the Industrialized World’s present food supply system is, for the most part, a result of the past and continuing ‘Age of Abundance’ and our comfortable lifestyle. One benefit of this is that it has allowed us the luxury to eat cuisine from all over the world. This extravagance occurs right at our dinner table, wherever people live in America and most of the world… after only a simple trip to the store.
Unfortunately, as a side effect, food is less fresh, is adulterated with chemicals and has far from the nutritional content it used to have. Experiment by buying some ‘farmer’s market home grown organic tomatoes’…and then compare the taste of these home-grown tomatoes to those from the store.
Midwesterners ate copious amounts of pork, chicken and beef… rarely seafood… but seafood was the abundant principal food type for coastal people, and they ate less pork, chicken and beef.
Regardless of this luxury… the growing and processing of almost ALL food items is now dependent, not only on transportation and proper storage… but each item is dependent upon processing, packaging, chemicals, and preservatives. These items are usually produced hundreds and sometimes thousands of miles away from the processing facilities. Without the ability to transport these processing items… the food production line comes to a standstill.
If you live next door to a chicken farmer, hog farmer, or cattle feeder… the chicken, pork or beef from these producers that you put on your table will most likely have made a meandering trip of thousands of miles to get back to your dinner table after weeks of processing, storage, and transportation.
This, even though the farmer you live next to could have thrown it over the fence to you.
It is necessary that food in this system be processed with chemicals and treated with preservatives because of this time-intensive delay through remote and centralized processing, storage, and transportation systems. Ahhh! America and the Industrialized world!
Each item you put on your table endures weeks of transportation. To processing facilities, through processing, transportation to storage and distribution warehouses… then is distributed by truck to your grocery store. An average 1400-mile trip to get to your table.
This movement away from the ‘Garden to Table’ existence is compounded further by our reliance on electricity and an electronic digital infrastructure that virtually controls every facet of our food production line, yet is susceptible to interruption and in some cases even protracted disruption or destruction.
Even though people eat foods now that in the past would have been a great delicacy and food is readily available… few people now stockpile food reserves as in the past. People live a ‘hand to mouth’ existence now because the grocery store is… ‘just down the street.’
This electrical and electronic digital infrastructure system is the caretaker of virtually everything we use or consume today… but most critically our food supply. The growing, processing, storage and distribution of it. It is also the caretaker of another critical element of food production… the water supply. Read the Chapter “Emanuelson on preparing for an EMP attack or a Solar Storm” in the Civil Defense Manual and you will see the fragile state of our existence and how we could go back to ‘the Stone Age’ by these Catastrophic Events.
The 1973 toilet paper panic buying
Through numerous people I communicate with in the know… the food production and distribution systems are already strained. This comes from months ago panic buying and the pandemic affecting everything from raw food production, on through to transportation and getting it onto the shelves of stores. Covid-19. Simple working people shortages and new and time consuming Covid-19 restrictions and rules manufacturers have to work by.
Behind the stocked shelves of the stores… the American supply system is creaking. You can’t hear it… you can’t see it… you can’t smell it… you can’t taste it… you can’t feel it… but it is strained. Partly from panic buying 4 and 5 months ago… and partly from Covid-19 procedures and ‘sick people’ that have hindered production of normal supplies.
For an understanding of an anomaly that occurs with the supply chain for food and everything else you buy, I give this example. The 1973 toilet paper panic buying. For the necessity to use toilet paper… food has to go in the other end first. But forget about that. This is about that as an example of the stress that can occur to the American supply system.
The 1973 toilet paper shortage all started as a joke on the Johnny Carson Show. There was no shortage, but that joke set in motion a chain of events that became real. At the beginning of the Coronavirus… the same thing happened again… all because of a report that there was no toilet paper in Hawaii.
But the point is… an issue of a shortage in anything produced is that it takes months for production to provide sufficient supply. No matter how hard they work, how many shifts they run, how committed they are to production increase.
In 1973, this shortage of one non-life-critical item, taken for granted, took months to catch up production and delivery to the point normal supplies were again available. Demand just overwhelms production and transportation capability.
What’s around you… and alternatives…
Learn what edibles are around you in the wild. For one, a person can just about survive off the Hickory tree… aka Pecan tree. The roots of this tree also have abundant amounts of salt when processed correctly. To identify the Hickory, go to www.Wikihow.com and search ‘13 steps in identifying the Hickory Tree.’
Do this now-now and locate Hickory and Pecan trees close to your CDM Neighborhood Protection Plan™ for salt, food and a source of wood for tool handles, weapons… and fire, if necessary. NPP Group Members should process the salt from a Hickory tree’s roots before a Catastrophic Event occurs so it’s not a last-minute learning experience.
Get to know your area farmers and gardeners!
Learn to fish. Learn to hunt. Buy a book and learn to gather wild edibles where you live… but more than anything… I was surprised with what is in the desert that I could survive on.
Look at some of the old methods for food sources, processing and storage… websites like TimberCreekFarmer.com and especially Claude Davis’s book “The Lost Ways” at https://thelostways.net/

I am a believer in fuel availability, after a Prolonged Crisis, being extremely plentiful. Read the Chapter “Alternative power” for my reasoning. What fuel or source do you use for your NPP cooking when it is a Grid Down Situation?
The perfect answer is the ‘H45 U.S. Army Tent Stove,’ at least for a few years until you establish fully sustainable prolonged use cooking and heating sources.
American soldiers loved this little wonder… and no wonder why. Consider soldiering in subzero temperatures where the shelter you’re in is almost like being outside. It keeps no heat in but only the wind out. Then along came the M45 stove. Ahhhh!
This stove burns about every kind of fossil petroleum fuel made and listed by the Draft International Standard (DIS)…
…diesel (DF) DF#1, DF#2, DF#4, DMB Marine Diesel Oil and DMA, DMZ grades of Marine Gas Oil, #1 furnace fuel oil, gasoline as well as paraffin based JP4, JP5 and JP8 jet fuels.
No electricity is required, and it will crank out 45,000 BTUs for heating and cooking. You can buy these on the internet new and used from $100 to about $400 excluding shipping, which can be expensive.
But in the long run, these stoves are worth every penny spent on them. See the Chapter “Alternative power” for more information on cooking fuel sources. Get one at www.SportsmansGuide.com
…freaking buy food NOW… it’s cheap.
Buy food NOW, NOW, NOW, NOW!
I’m putting my tin foil hat back on. I believe that the same people provoking unrest and intent on twisting the election results by fraud of mail-in votes, intend to create a man-made famine Catastrophic Event at some point whether they win or not. My logic… Citizens are armed to the teeth in America… and they’re failing in their attempt to disarm us. America is the last obstacle to these people gaining control over everyone on this planet.
They will do something. Start another war, create an EMP event, or maybe just simple starvation of their opposition. This is exactly the path taken in the Ukraine. Americans can be defeated by Globalist forces that control food if they’re unprepared. If you think that is ‘tin foil hat’ paranoia… you can think long term about my ‘tin foil hat’ statement while you’re starving… and I’m eating.
I am not LDS or Mormon, but I stumbled on to them in Utah… and their “Bishop’s Storehouse.” Impressive to say the least. The LDS store just about everything in number #10 cans, which last for 30 years when it’s not knocked around and kept at normal room temperature but above freezing. Rice, beans, sugar… they have the whole kit-and-caboodle.
Proteins and carbohydrates. Some of the storehouses will help non-LDS members process and ‘can’ your own foods for storage. The LDS advise how to can and pack… and you do the work. I obtained a large amount of my Emergency Foods from them. Generally, pretty nice people too! I have food for my family and the members of my CDM Neighborhood Protection PlanTM that will keep us fed for over a year… maybe longer.
Mostly for cooking, I keep four gallons of rice bran oil on hand at all times. A heart surgeon friend turned me on to this as it’s made from rice kernel hulls and is chock-full of anti-oxidants. Loaded! We cook with rice oil and prefer the taste of it over olive oil. I drink a shot glass of this and even give my dogs a snort of it every day. It has a longer shelf life in its plastic container and is full of anti-oxidants. From… CaliforniaRiceOil.com
We’re experiencing issues on a level in America that we have never before seen…
- Fake fraudulent and fabricated lies and daily omission of the truth has become news,
- The Covid-19 ‘pandemic’ and Individual Rights violations on a huge scale by government officials eager to enforce draconian laws,
- Mass rioting
- An ongoing attempt at election fraud by ‘Americans’ who hate this country,
- An enormous effort to disarm Americans
- American corporations donating massive amounts of money to anti-American organizations,
- The inability to have a civil discussion of politics or ideology without it turning to violence even in families,
- White people actively advocating the genocide of their own race and acting as the majority race members of a ‘Black Lives Matter’ organization,
- The militant wing of the Communists ANTIFA becoming more and more violent,
Did I cover them all? …what’s next?
Don’t be a willing participant in you, your family and neighbor’s deaths.
Don’t be a willing participant of Globalist plans.
If you want to keep this country’s Constitution and Individual Liberties, freaking buy food NOW… it’s cheap.
Buy extra for people you know can’t afford to.
