Off the Grid News Update - Solutions From Science?

{'s Note, Commentary & Opinion:  It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that a religious organization (this Jurisdiction) believes that you, the viewer should be informed about most everything of relevance to life and living, especially those things that affect your Faith!  In spite of this general view, we do receive castigating e-mails about this.  Being informed for both survival and maintaining your Orthodox Catholic Christian Faith is most important to us.  Along the way we receive articles and information, such as that posted below.  We believe and think that you, the viewer, can benefit from such articles.  However, that is for you to judge!  The Staff of }

A few months back, Forbes put out a list of the most dangerous cities in America. One would expect that with current economic conditions, all forms of major crimes would be escalating, but just the opposite has been true. For the past four years, violent crime has dropped... the murder rate dropped by over 4% in 2010 alone, rape was down by 5%, and robbery dropped by 10%. That doesn't mean that your area is that much safer however.

For instance, Stockton California has 805 violent crimes for every 100,000 residents, which makes them 7th on Forbes' list. The problem here is that "the city is a way station on a major drug route from Mexico up the West Coast, which leads to gang competition for turf," according to Megan Wolfram, an intelligence analyst.

It's assumed that chronic poverty plays a part in Memphis, Tennessee's high crime rate of 1,006 violent crimes per 100,000 people. 19.1% of the people living in the area are poor, which makes Memphis the largest impoverished metropolitan area in the country, according to data from the Census Bureau.

Authorities cannot figure out why Springfield, Illinois places third on Forbes' list. Their unemployment rate is lower than the national average but they do have a relatively young population which may account for the high rate of crime. Generally, younger areas see higher incidents of violent crimes.

Vehicle City, or Flint, Michigan, is an example of high crime because of high unemployment. Thousands of auto manufacturing jobs have been lost to overseas migration by the auto companies. As job options dwindle, people get desperate, willing to risk more and more to survive.

A steady supply of drugs flows into Anchorage, Alaska, and along with high drug crime rates, forcible rape and property crime are double the state average of Alaska as a whole. Despite restrictions on the ingredients used to make the drug of choice (methamphetamine), a drug supply line from Mexico keeps the drug coming into the state.

Even economic booms can't eradicate crime waves, as seen in the example of Lubbock, Texas with 808 violent crimes per 100,000 residents. Lubbock seems to have the unfortunate distinction of being a hub for drugs and gangs who favor methamphetamine and cocaine as their drugs of choice.

This is but the tip of the iceberg. As the economy falters even more, as class warfare becomes even more of a rallying cry this election season, as we lose more and more of our direction by turning away from basic values of right and wrong, those of us who have been fortunate in life (whether through blind luck or dogged determination), must find a way to protect those things that we have from the criminal element.

But where does one begin? I would suggest with this book...

How To Hide Your Guns
Off Grid Survival Caches

How to Hide Your Guns is very different from many of the other resources we have seen. How to Hide Your Guns is full of practical, easy-to-implement tips and tricks that many people would not think about on their own. Nearly all of the ideas are easy and cheap to implement immediately.

How to Hide Your Guns will teach you everything you need to know to keep your personal property from being stolen. In this book, you'll learn a great deal about home security in general, and how to prepare for potential emergency scenarios that can make your home and property vulnerable to those who are out to do harm.

You get this information in three formats: as a print book, as an audio book, and as an instant PDF download. You can read at your leisure, listen in your car, or start reading right away with the PDF download. But regardless of the format, you'll get invaluable information such as:

  • How to hide guns, jewelry, and other valuables in plain sight!
  • Places you should never hide your guns or valuables
  • Why a cache is different from a hiding place, the reasons for using one, and how to create a fool-proof cache
  • The best places in your home to hide your money and credit cards
  • What to look for in a home security system
  • How to stay "below the radar" of anyone who might have any reason to take your guns
  • Special tips for urban dwellers.

This comprehensive book doesn't stop there. (In fact, in my opinion the title should be Hide Your Guns and Much, Much More!) The author also covers how to protect your personal property in various emergency situations, such as natural disasters, civil unrest, or any other scenario that might force you out of your home.

PLUS... with your purchase of this book, you get not only three book formats (print, audio, and downloadable PDF), you also get three bonus gifts. These products were handpicked to make this package the perfect resource for those of you who are ready to take your emergency preparedness to the next level.

1st Free Gift: A 2-part CD set called The Great Gun Debate: How To Argue With Liberals About Guns And Win Every Time! Tired of debating with liberals about guns and gun control? This CD set reveals gun control arguments even the most hard-core liberals can't defeat.

2nd Free Gift: A bonus DVD called The Real Story Behind The Second Amendment. This DVD shows you why our Founding Fathers intended for the Second Amendment to be included with our founding documents. This is a must-have video for anyone interested in preserving the right to keep and bear arms.

3rd Free Gift: Our popular e-Book, No B.S. Home Defense With Firearms. This 16-page e-Book teaches you how to use firearms to protect yourself and your family. Learn how to use your weapons safely when you find yourself backed into a corner. (Disclaimer: Using guns for self defense carries with it certain risks. Some of these risks are obviously life threatening. Always find out local, state, and federal laws that govern the use of deadly and non-deadly force.)

The sad fact is that this year alone, one in six homes will be burglarized and victims will lose an average of over $1600 per incident. Even worse is the sense of loss of security knowing your home has been broken into, and the loss of valuables or heirlooms that can never be replaced.

Click here to order your copy of How to Hide Your Guns with all the extra bonus materials, and sleep better knowing you have done what you can to keep your valuables safe and out of the hands of criminals.

They are, according to their nature & degree of ability, truly Christian in Spirit and in Truth for they have YOU, the viewer in mind as a part of their own concerns too, as we do too!


However... there is something else we wish to warn you about.

But we post it because it provides another side of the proverbial story.  The Church, after all, is supposed to be a temple for sick souls (sinners) without distinction between their worse sins or otherwise, but it seems to some organizations that they say much about others, but fail and refuse to upbraid themselves and their members for their own sins...)


"Never, never, never let anyone tell you that, in order to be Orthodox, you must also be eastern. The West was Orthodox for a thousand years, and her venerable liturgy is far older than any of her heresies."


- Blessed St. John Maximovitch of Shanghai and San Francisco

The purpose for presenting this Daily News section:

Daily News is very important to those who are true Orthodox Catholic Christians.  For without knowing or gaining information for understanding about what is happening in one's local area and around the world, you could  find yourself faced with denied services in the secular area, lack of income, even (although it sounds far-fetched) ability to worship openly for the time is not far off when all will have to decide if they wish to follow the Anti-Christ through the One World Church and One World Government as prophesied by the Apocalypse, the Book of Revelation of St. John or follow the faith delivered once and for all which will cause for many to be denied the abilities to survive under those kind of conditions, causing for one to consider other options. 


Many of those who subscribe to, and some who have caused or are the cause for, these things to happen are involved in or with the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church (which is not the seat of all things "Catholic") as well as its protestant daughters such as the cultic Jehovah's Witnesses, the Pentecostal Churches, the Church of Latter Day Saints also known as the Mormon Church and far too many more to list. 


Yet, at this web site we do provide some of the reasons about why they are opined to be the harbingers of that which is prophesied in Holy Scripture for the bringing about of the End Times which we have already entered.  It is not necessarily their individual members or parishioners that should be blamed since they are only the "Sheep" and not the Shepherds... So do not think we castigate individual people of themselves as we castigate those "money changers" who Jesus Christ chased out of His Father's House as the Bible Describes; for they exist in these present times too.


Events are already rushing toward that time in which this is beginning to happen and will become more fully wide-spread. In these present times all you need to really do is look around both your local and larger areas as to what is really on-going through.  Things so very little or miniscule that they are barely noticeable except to the more informed observer may become apparent. 

Those little things are the laws of the land, economics, politics, the degrading and erosion of those rights and liberties afforded by the Constitution of these United States of America and many other things such as the manner with which entertainments have taken over much of the populace, entering into and becoming a major focus in worship, and more. 

We ask you, if you don't want to believe us... Have you heard, seen or found what is termed (of the many terms being used) that there are "holding areas" or "camps" or "Closed/Fenced communities" being built by GOVERNMENT? 

Here in North America, especially in the United States of America, we must admit that what Russia has come out of (a communistic, atheist country) we are entering into.  And one last thing that needs also to be understood... Something very important to those of you who are "Catholic" in the Roman sense of its jurisdiction....   And, we believe this also holds true for many who are "Orthodox" whether "Eastern" or "Western"....

[ * Non-Denominational = Synchrestic Ecumenism, Disease of Scholasticism, altering the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ to accommodate the disease of Political Correctness and CULTIC PROTESTANTISM, and the Roman Jurisdiction (Latin Church = Vatican) of the Catholic Church) breaking of - or failure and refusal to respect and abide by  - the ancient Seven Ecumenical "Do Not" Canons which leaves everything else open to God's gift of creativity... failure & refusal to abide by and have respect for those who diligently protect one of the other Pillars of the Church, the Seals of the Confessional, but "Non-Denominational" also includes worshiping Satan's religion of Muslim, Islam by praying with them and other heretics such as 'Pentecostalism,' 'Jehovah's Witnesses,' 'Mormons,' 'Church of Christ,' any so-called church with "Community Church" in their nomenclature and others who by their false and misleading dogmas and doctrines are actually against the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ upon whom and for exacting reason we are called "Christian" in both spirit and truth from which non-denominational protestant sectarian claimants have departed from as being so-called Christian] Only a skilled spiritual father can help you!

Remember: You cannot ride two horses or serve two masters for one of them will be harmed by your thoughts, your very words and your actions which is to blaspheme the Holy Ghost (Spirit) who will depart from you.  And when the Holy Spirit departs, the great deceiver (unbeknownst to you) will rush in to fill the void under disguise of being the Holy Spirit!  Testing of the Holy Spirit to insure it is the Holy Spirit does not, for many a Sectarian Protestant and Roman, work because the Great Deceiver (Satan) is most skilled in worming and snaking his charms around your mind and heart to feign being the Holy Spirit.  Remember, Satan has the same gifts similar to the Holy Spirit but Satan's gifts are UN-HOLY and lead all who accept him (unbeknownst to you) to perdition.
