The nation’s most daunting environmental cleanup project has a new toxic problem on its hands.
Within the Hanford Nuclear Reservation along the Columbia River in Washington State, six underground storage tanks are leaking radioactive waste. Some of the tanks hold as much as 500,000-750,000 gallons of dangerous fluid that is slowing seeping into the soil.
State and federal officials said the leaks don’t pose an immediate threat to human health, since the tanks are located more than five miles from the Columbia River.
The newly discovered problem only adds to the soil contamination at Hanford, which was used for five decades to produce plutonium for the U.S. nuclear weapons arsenal.
There are nearly 150 tanks, similar in size and design, to the six spilling radioactive liquid and sludge at the site. Four of the six tanks have leaked…
The cancer of criminality and sexual deviance in the Catholic Church is symptomatic of the growing decadence that afflicts Western civilization, and pushes it toward its inevitable decline and fall. As the Chinese understand, the “mandate of heaven” – a sort of divine legitimacy bestowed on civilizations and their rulers – has been removed from the Catholic Church, the heart of that heartless world known as the West. By extension, the whole Western world has lost the mandate of heaven.”
Shortly after the Pope’s shocking resignation, I published an article entitled “Was Pope Benedict Fired by the Knights of Malta?”
In that article, which quickly went viral, I pointed out:
“Popes do not resign because they’re getting old. If you believe that Papal Bull, I have a ‘we killed Bin Laden and threw him in the ocean’ story to sell you.” My article speculated, without much evidence, about various hypothetical reasons for the Pope’s astounding and unprecedented decision to step down.
Yesterday we learned the real reason for the Pope’s resignation: The Church has been penetrated, at its highest levels, by a homosexual embezzlement ring. According to Dr. Robert Moynihan of Inside the Vatican magazine, a secret report on the homosexual crime ring, and associated blackmail problems, was given to the Pope on December 17. This report, Dr. Moynihan tells us, “overwhelmed his spirit within him” and “made his heart desolate.” (The original source of these revelations, which Dr. Moynihan seemingly confirms, was an article in La Republica.)
Why didn’t the Pope simply fire the malefactors? Apparently, like the criminal banks that are “too big to fail,” the larcenous pederasts in the Church are “too big to fire.” In other words, the Catholic Church has been taken over by an organized crime ring of embezzlers and sexual deviants.
The Catholic Church, the largest and most powerful religious organization on earth, has long seen itself as the moral guardian of the Western world. Despite a long history of scandals, the Church has always retained its status as the source of moral authority for the world’s Catholics, who currently number 1.2 billion.
But Pope Benedict’s resignation – a tacit admission that even the absolute ruler of the church is powerless in the face of the Vatican’s “untouchable” gay crime ring – raises the ancient but always-relevant question: Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? Who will guard the guardians?
The cancer of criminality and sexual deviance in the Catholic Church is symptomatic of the growing decadence that afflicts Western civilization, and pushes it toward its inevitable decline and fall. As the Chinese understand, the “mandate of heaven” – a sort of divine legitimacy bestowed on civilizations and their rulers – has been removed from the Catholic Church, the heart of that heartless world known as the West. By extension, the whole Western world has lost the mandate of heaven.
Dr. Michael Jones, a noted Catholic author who edits Culture Wars magazine, argues that sexuality has been weaponized by Zionists and freemasons and used to destroy the Christian West. The same forces, he adds, are also targeting the Muslim East. When the Israelis invade Palestine and broadcast pornography on Palestinian TV, when well-funded clandestine groups distribute pornographic DVDs in Muslim countries, and when the Rockefeller-Rothschild cabal funds such sexual liberationists as the pedophile rapist Dr. Alfred Kinsey, a “culture war” is being waged against the moral grounding that holds families and societies together, according to Dr. Jones.
The rise of sexual deviancy, and subsequent decline of Western civilization, is a problem that goes far beyond the boundaries of the Catholic Church. Just as there is an “untouchable” gay crime ring in the Vatican, a very similar criminal cabal is equally “untouchable” at the highest levels of power in the United States.
This criminal cabal was exposed in the Franklin Savings and Loan scandal, brilliantly described by journalist Nick Bryant in his book The Franklin Scandal: A Story of Powerbrokers, Child Abuse, and Betrayal. Bryant summarizes his book as “the story of a nationwide pedophile ring that pandered children to a cabal of the rich and powerful. The ring’s pimps were a pair of political powerbrokers who had access to the highest levels of our government. Nebraska legislators nearly exposed the ring in 1990, but its unveiling had the potential to produce seismic political aftershocks. The legislators’ efforts resulted in rash of mysterious deaths and the overpowering corruption of federal and local law enforcement, including the FBI, Secret Service, and Justice Department, effecting an immaculate cover-up of the trafficking network.”
Bryant’s book shows that all relevant US government agencies, as well as all significant major media outlets in the US, are controlled (or at least intimidated) by a crime network that kidnaps thousands of children and sells them as sex slaves to members of the American political and financial elite, and then uses the videos and photos for blackmail. Among the most notorious child-abusers are the two Presidents Bush.
Convincing testimony from abused children, cited by Nick Bryant, implicated President George H.W. Bush as one of the many elite Americans who enjoyed the services of child sex slaves. On June 29, 1989, the Washington Times reported this story under the screaming headline: “Homosexual prostitution inquiry ensnares VIPs with Reagan, Bush: ‘Call Boys’ took midnight tours of White House.”
Bush Jr. apparently inherited the same proclivities as his father. During the Bush II presidency, the notorious homosexual prostitute Jeff Gannon, disguised as a journalist, made several overnight stays in the White House.
The younger Bush’s sexual deviancy apparently isn’t limited to homosexuality and pedophilia. According to a report by former National Security Agency officer Wayne Madsen: “The orders to take the sexually-oriented photos and videos (at Abu Ghraib and elsewhere), some of which involve teenage Iraqi boys and girls and sodomization by their guards, came directly from a pedophile and closeted male homosexual ring operating in the White House, according to intelligence sources. Copies of the tapes and photos were sent directly to the White House for the entertainment of senior members of the Bush White House, including officials in the Vice President’s office and the Executive Office of the President… installation of live streaming black boxes in the White House and the Eisenhower Old Executive Office Building were used to stream live video of torture sessions in Guantanamo, Cuba and Abu Ghraib to the Old Executive Office Building office of Vice President Dick Cheney’s Chief Counsel David Addington and into the White House, itself.”
Why is this gay crime ring untouchable? Apparently, it “owns” the US government by virtue of the blackmail photos and videos it holds on all major powerbrokers. (Anyone who doubts this should consult any decent biography of former FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover, who likewise “owned” the US government thanks to his collection of blackmail photos… and was himself “owned” by Mafia chief Meyer Lansky, who held a photo of Hoover in a compromising position.)
Both 2004 presidential candidates, George W. Bush and John Kerry, are members of Skull and Bones, a satanic secret society based on sexual deviance and organized crime. Bush and Kerry each, during their induction to Skull and Bones, laid naked in a coffin in front of the older Bonesmen, enjoying themselves while recounting their entire sexual histories.
The US military, too, hosts a similar crime ring. Kay Griggs, ex-wife of a Marine Colonel, has described the horrors she endured at the hands of a homosexual/rapist/pedophile ring that was just as “untouchable” as the Vatican sex mafia that brought down the Pope.
The US military’s domination by criminal sexual deviants is epitomized by the case of the notorious child molester Col. Michael Aquino. Col. Aquino, who managed to get himself expelled from the Church of Satan for being too evil, went on to beat a well-documented child abuse rap. He later became one of the US military’s most senior specialists on psychological warfare and mind control.
In another “gay mafia” scandal, David Ferrie, a CIA operative and former Catholic priest who was defrocked for pedophilia, and “gay CIA mafia” kingpin Clay Shaw, were prosecuted for the JFK assassination by New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison. Naturally, homosexual groups protested when Oliver Stone’s film JFK depicted these events accurately.
Today’s leaders of the West, in short, are virtually indistinguishable from the gang-rapists who ran Sodom and Gomorrah. And the “trickle-down” effect of elite deviance is destroying Western civilization. Today in the USA, roughly half of marriages end in divorce, and growing numbers of children – a majority in some communities – are being born out of wedlock. Drugs, crime, pornography addiction, and other vices are endemic.
The decadent West, not surprisingly, is losing its economic domination of the world. Jon Moynihan, Executive Chairman of PA Consulting Group, made a presentation at the London School of Economics earlier this year entitled “The Continued Economic Decline of the West.” Moynihan says it is “highly predictable” that Western incomes and living standards will be roughly halved during the next two decades. This unprecedented catastrophe, he writes, is virtually inevitable.
Will Pope Benedict’s resignation one day be viewed as the moment when the “mandate of heaven” passed from Christianity to Islam? Will Muslims be able to maintain their integrity and family values in the face of a morally-degraded and decadent neo-colonialism? Or will the Catholic Church recover from this potentially mortal blow, turn away from its entanglements with Zionism and freemasonry, and forge a new alliance – grounded in traditional morality – with the Muslim world?

Quackademic is a word coined to refer to academics and other professionals who sell their opinions and advice to the highest bidder with disastrous results for humanity.
Let us begin with some reasonable questions for academic economists. What is a Depression like 1929-1939 and how did we get out of it? Depressions like that a period of time in which massive amounts of Unpayable Debts are canceled. This can take a long time during which there is much hardship. The demographer Borisov estimates that between 3 and 7 million Americans out of a population of 125 million died of starvation. Americans, Europeans and most people in the world have debt based currencies like the Federal Reserve Note. This means that checking account money can only be created when you or the government takes out a loan. If you pay the loan off or default on it, then the total of…
I’ve just come out of hibernation from writing another survival book (details to come soon). I really need a fun ‘creative’ and not too serious survival project. I figure since mySURVIVAL TAMPON post went over so well (did you know I was featured on the OFFICIAL TAMPAX FACEBOOK PAGE – my Mom was so proud) I would keep this project in the same spirit. Hope you enjoy.
Including CONDOMS in survival kits is not a new idea. People have been packing them in mini survival kits for as long as I can remember – using them primarily as an expandable WATER CONTAINER. Don’t worry, I’ll get into details later. While a little taboo, I’ll ask that you set aside any preconceived notions you might have about condoms. In this post, I’ll argue that as far as multi-functional survival uses are concerned, the condom offers an incredible BANG for your buck. Sorry – I couldn’t resist.
I’ll break down the many uses within each CORE SURVIVAL CATEGORY.
As I’ve mentioned, including condoms in survival kits is not a new idea. They make amazing compact water containers that can hold as much as 2 liters of water if handled properly. They are, after all, designed to be water tight. The elasticity of latex condoms is SHOCKING.
These little suckers will stretch to sizes that will surprise you. Check out how big this one got?
However, while it excels in elasticity, it lacks in durability. The thin latex walls are very susceptible to sharp objects and puncture. Especially when filled with water, the slightest prick (even from a blade of grass) will split it open almost instantly. Then, you’ve lost your water AND your container. No fear – there is a strategy for carrying water in a condom. The easiest I’ve found it to take off your sock and fill the condom inside of your sock. Not only does the sock provide stability but it also provides protection. It still needs to be coddled like a little baby but it’s not AS delicate. Other options are to wrap it in a t-shirt and even fill it inside a backpack or helmet. It helps to stretch the condom a little bit first – kind of like you do when getting ready to blow up a balloon. Condom balloon animals anyone?
A Condom is easier to fill when water is falling into it versus just sweeping it through the water. In nature, if you can find a little water fall or fast moving water it will make your life a lot easier. Tie the mouth of the condom off around a stick about the diameter of your thumb. This way, you can fairly easily untie it. Just knotting it off with no stick makes it very difficult to open back up again. You may need to use it over and over again so don’t rush it.
Just because you’ve collected and contained water doesn’t mean it’s OK to drink. Once your condom is full, you must now consider purification options. Boiling is not an option unless you have a metal container. But, maybe you have a metal container and you’re just using the the condom to transport MORE water from point A to point B. If so, great. If not, you can purify the water chemically with Iodine, Bleach (Chlorine) or store bought water purification tablets. Learn how to purify water with bleach in this POST I WROTE HERE. If you are packing condoms in a small survival kit, be sure to include a handful of purification tablets for a complete water purification system. Need some great water purification tablets? I sell some HEREfor only $7.98. Stocking stuffer anyone? I can see it now, a box of condoms and some water purification tabs sticking out of a Christmas stocking. There’s something just not right about that picture.
The most obvious way to use a condom to aid in survival fire is to protect DRY fire tinder. Just because the weather is great NOW doesn’t mean it’s going to stay that way. Finding dry fire tinder in wet and rainy conditions can be very difficult. Protecting dry fire tinder during inclement weather is very easy – when you have a condom. Simply stuff the condom with your best tinder and tuck it away for a rainy day. No rocket science here.
One condom even protects this entire bracket fungus – which contains a load of excellent natural tinder.
Condom as Fire Starter
The condom ITSELF also makes excellent fire tinder. With an open flame such as a match or cigarette lighter, a latex condom will ignite almost instantaneously and burn furiously for several minutes – allowing you plenty of time to build your fire. Below is a quick video I shot to demonstrate how well a latex condom burns:
But what if you don’t have an ignition source? Fire requires 3 elements: IGNITION SOURCE (HEAT), FUEL and OXYGEN. If you don’t have matches or a ferro rod, then I guess you can fill the condom with water and use it as a magnifying glass on a sunny day like this guy did:
Use Condom To Make Fire!
Anyone ever tried this? It’s fall here in Indiana and the sun isn’t hot enough this time of year to make it work but you can guarantee next summer I’ll try it. But, I’m not going to let NO SUN stop me from getting a fire by using a condom so I resorted to a more primitive method – the thumb loop hand drill. The hand drill is probably the hardest of all primitive fire starting methods. Without practice, it can be very difficult to get the right combination of pressure and spindle speed to generate enough heat to create an ember. However, thumb loops really help facilitate this process. Thumb loops allow the user to apply more pressure on the spindle and also spin their hands in pretty much one place. Below is a video of how I used condom thumb loops to help generate a coal with a hand drill set.
Condom Fire Hand Drill
I also used a handful of condoms as a engine for a traditional Bow Drill Fire Set. Notice in the video below that the condom engine replaces the typical BOW in BOW Drill. I call this the CONDOM DRILL FIRE by FRICTION SET:
Condom Fire Drill: Fire by Friction
Any other ways you can think of to start a fire using a condom?
Seriously, how can a condom provide you with survival food? In more ways than you might think actually…
I’m a huge fan of sling shots. I’ve been working on a small game hunting post featuring sling shots for several months and this was the perfect opportunity to test out an idea I had – the Condom Small Game Hunter Sling Shot. Sounds funny, right? Condoms aren’t that much different from the latex bands that come stock with most small game hunting sling shots. Remember, your ability to improvise is your most valuable survival skill!
I started my build with a natural tree fork.
After a little detailing and carving I ended up with a nice little pocket sized Sling Shot Frame.
Next, I used 3 condoms on each fork to provide the force necessary to kill small game. I put the condoms inside each other with a little wad of cattail fuzz at the bottom and used duct tape to hold each condom band on the frame. The wad of cattail fuzz prevents the condoms from pulling out of the duct tape.
I decided rather than launch imperfect rocks with a leather pouch, I would use a loop of bank line as a anchor point to nock a hand-carved mini dart. I wrapped the other end of the condoms around the loop of bank line and again duct taped it in place.
Below is a maple branch I used to carve some of the mini dart projectiles.
As you can see, some of the darts are tipped with a Honey Locust thorn using Pine Pitch. It’s not necessary, but I’m really digging how deadly these darts look, aren’t you? To see how I make an all natural Pine Pitch Glue, read THIS POST.
Those are some sick looking little arrows aren’t they? I know what you’re thinking. Cool looking sling-shot, but there’s no way you can actually kill small game with it in a survival scenario. Oh, ye of little faith.
In the 1 minute video below, you can see the condom sling shot in action.
Condom Sling Shot
Worse case scenario, a condom can be used as a crude rubber glove while dealing with any first aid related issues. It will protect the wound from your nasty hands as well as protect you from the wound if you’re dealing with someone else.
Protect Your Muzzel
I’ve heard 1st hand accounts from soldiers who’ve attended courses at Willow Haven that they used condoms to protect their rifles while serving in the Middle East. They would cover the muzzle of their rifle to prevent sand/mud/water from getting inside – very simple and effective.
While there are many natural options for a fishing bobber, a make-shift condom bobber is pretty darn effective. I’ve found that rather than just tying off an air bubble in the condom, it works a little better if you stuff in some cattail fluff (called ‘cattail down’) instead. Cattail down is naturally buoyant and also water-resistant so it’s the perfect bobber filling. Did you know that life-jackets used to be filled with cattail down before synthetic materials were invented? You may need to know that if you ever want to construct a survival life-jacket! The cattail down adds a little weight to prevent your bobber from just blowing around in the wind.
Anyone ever seen CAST AWAY with Tom Hanks? Remember his little buddy WILSON? I’ve got a survival companion too. I just call him Lil’ Cody. He debuted in the sling shot video above when I put a mini-arrow through his face. He’ll keep you company when you are alone, starving and freezing in the woods while trying to make a Condom Sling Shot.
I have to say, I did feel a little pressure to perform when he was watching me carve out the Condom Hand Drill set below. I always do better in front of an audience anyway. I think there’s something to this “WILSON” idea.
Ok, so what did I miss? What other survival uses for a condom can YOU think of? And, what’s NEXT? What is another product we can brainstorm for survival functions?
