Are You An Insulin Dependent Prepper?

I have been a prepper for years but also an insulin dependent diabetic for 36 years. So anytime I find some interesting information on prepping for diabetics I like to pass the information around because diabetics have concerns they need to think about when it comes to there prepping.

Enjoy the read I hope you find it informative.

BEWARE: The 3 Most Deadky Groups In A Collapse!

There's a big difference between arming yourself for "home defense" vs. arming for "survival".  Discover the most complete step-by-step training guide (ever!) on how to customize your survival weapons arsenal...

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

"Know the enemy..."

These words are by the ancient Chinese General Sun Tzu in "The Art Of War" which is required reading by officers in today's military.

Want to know why?

Because these words are just as true today in combating enemy soldiers... terrorists... and even the threats YOU will face in a collapse of civil order following a disaster.

And who ARE the "enemy" you'll face in a post-collapse environment?

In a nutshell... everyone!

But here are a few of the groups you need to be particularly cautious of:

*             Gangs - They're already armed and have no moral obstacles in the way of victimizing others for their own gain. They'll likely stick to urban areas but will quickly see the advantage of spreading their territory outward for resupply and dominance.

*             "Clans" - As regular people become frustrated with a lack of hope in the future, they'll abandon our officials.  New informal leaders will emerge who will put a voice to the frustration and others will follow them.  These new "clans" are guaranteed to take arms as a show of strength.  (A good parallel of formation - though much more than a "clan" - is today's Tea Party movement.  But the clans I'm talking about will be very "militia-focused" in a collapse.)

*             "Zombies" - Not the flesh-eating kind.  Fact is, the concept of "prepping" isn't shared by 99% of the population and these people will be the most desperate once government aid is financially choked out - wandering around looking to beg (or take!) what they can... even if it's by force.

Now is the time for you to face reality...

... in a post-collapse environment, it's "eat or be eaten"!

Threats will be everywhere (even in a short-term disaster) and "knowing your enemy" will make you more aware and able to spot the signs of a threat building up before it hits your doorstep.

But one thing is for certain...

When they come, your "enemy" will be ARMED!

When these threats are staring you in the face... when there's no law and order to count on... and desperation turns even every-day people into blood-thirsty "takers"...

... YOU need to be armed too!

Unfortunately, even the most hardcore "gun nut" is often lacking in very specific areas of their survival weapon arsenal.

I know that sounds weird, but it's absolutely true because there are very specific differences between arming yourself for "home defense" vs. arming yourself for "survival".

Most people don't know this and you don't want to find out when it's already too late.

This week you can pick up a brand new program that shows you step-by-step how to customize your survival weapons plan.

It doesn't matter if you're starting from scratch or if you're more experienced and want to know the best ways to fine-tune your current plan.

This program is loaded with practical defense weapon strategies for everyone!

Plus, they're offering 3 optional bonuses I know you're going to love, including:

*             Improvised Weapons
*             Ultimate Survival Knife
*             Make Your Own Survival Bow
*             The Combat Machete Training Guide

Go check out the survival weapons program now and see what's missing from your current weapons planning.

Norm Bettencourt

P.S - Don't wait on this, ok?

Many of the strategies covered in this program are very inexpensive so it's not like you need to go out and buy the $2,000 "Death Ray Laser Machine" or anything.

It's all about what's practical - for the specific threats you'll face AND specific to your budget.

In fact, going "cheap" with your weapons actually has its advantages as you'll discover in the "Extreme Survival Weapons" program.

But NOW is the time to arm yourself "the right way" so you're fully prepared for any threat you may face after a disaster collapses our way of life and ordinary people turn vicious.

How Deep Is Your Survival Weapons Arsenal?

Do you like "weapons"?

Yeah, stupid question, right?

Every true patriot and survivalist understands that during  
times of crisis (like after a natural disaster, large scale  
power-outage, or a total societal collapse), the "wolves" of  
our society are ready to circle the unfortunate and TAKE  
what they want by force!

That's why you've probably already begun arming yourself for  
hard times, right?

But I'm going to ask you to do something for me (and it's  
for your own good)...

     It doesn't matter how experienced you are with  

     I don't care if you own enough AR15's to arm a small  

     I don't care if you've never even touched a gun before  
     in your life...

... I'm going to ask you to open your mind and be prepared  
to CHALLENGE everything you know about weapons for survival.

You see, for the last year and a half, a friend of mine has  
been doing research and testing on "the ultimate survival  
weapons plan".


Besides being a decorated combat veteran himself, he also  
conducted several in-depth interviews with military...  
law-enforcement... survival experts... blade specialists...  
even a few "government spooks" who worked some of the  
roughest parts of the Middle East and saw the ingenuity  
first-hand of rebels and militia to maximize their weapons  

The result is an innovative "12-Layer Weapon Defense  
Program" that's guaranteed to fill you with the confidence  
that - no matter how desperate the times or severe the  
threat - YOU will be able to protect those you love!

     And the cool part is... he's developed specific ways to  
     ensure it WON'T break your bank account to reach this  
     level of security!

And this week only, when you pick up this new program, you  
can even get a great new "bonus manual" as a free gift.

It's called "Combat Machete" and it's a true training guide  
on how to weild the machete like a true "sword master".

Make no mistake... the machete is one of the most deadly  
weapons ever - WHEN it's used in the hands of someone who  
knows how to use it in real combat (think "Book Of Eli" type  

Get the "Combat Machete" manual free this week here. . .

This really is the most cutting-edge step-by-step roadmap to  
defending yourself and your family with a weapon when times  
get tough... and the wolves are on the prowl!

Grab your copy (and the free bonus gift) now while it's on  

Norm Bettencourt

P.S. - I'm serious that this program is for ALL levels of  

I know some of you think that because you already own a gun,  
you have "all you need", but I'm going to reveal some hard  
truths that may shock the hell out of you... and make you  
re-think your current weapons plan.

I'm not saying you have to scrap your current arsenal - I'd  
never do THAT!

But it may just be a matter of how you "look at" and  
implement your weapons plan should you ever be forced to put  
it into action.

There are some important things you need to consider and all  
will be revealed in this shocking new survival weapons guide

Escape & Evasion Equipment

There are some great new universal hand cuff keys on the market today in case you are every abducted and handcuffed (they are not for escaping from law enforcement) and need to escape. Make sure when storing/stashing any type of universal hand cuff key they can be easy accessed when your hands are behind your back.

Does & Don’ts for storing/stashing keys are:
·         On the leather label tag of your jeans, stitch one side of it so you make an instant pocket to hold your key. This is an ideal spot to hold your key because your hands can get to it easily in the rear hand cuffed position.
·         Stashed on a bracelet or watch area
·         Avoid areas such as on necklaces; shirt pockets or hanging off shirt buttons or front pockets of pants for it will be next to impossible to obtain your key when your hands are cuffed behind your back.

Here are some great universal handcuff keys on the market and there links.

Plastic Universal Handcuff Key

Use This Gizmo To Catch "Pervs & Freaks"...

In order to prepare for any disaster, crisis, or attack, you   
must think in "layers" of survival gear.

Of course you know you need a bug-out bag if you're forced   
to evacuate.

     (Click here for the ultimate bug-out bag list...   

But another area that a lot of people don't think of is your   
"every day carry" gear (or EDC).

That's because you never know when disaster is going to   
strike and your EDC may be the only gear you have available   
to save your life when there's no warning and you can't get   
to your home or car for your other gear.

But your EDC really ISN'T just about disasters and attacks.

Many of these items have every-day uses that can protect you   
as well.

For example...

One of the hidden threats few people even know about is that   
of the "predatory voyeur" while you're traveling away from   

You see, some hotel owners (or employees) have found clever   
ways to hide small cameras in hotel rooms in order to   
videotape you and your spouse changing clothes or even   
"getting down to business" if the mood strikes you.

It happens more than you think and there are websites out   
there that will pay these freaks for their illegal amateur   
clips (or they just keep them for personal viewing).

With technology being what it is, these camera lenses are   
super small... affordable by anyone... and can be hidden   
practically anywhere while sending a remote signal to a   
recorder in another room.

The options are endless and you'll never even know you're   
being spied on and video taped!

But for the prepared survivalist who's aware of this common   
threat, a simple mini-LED flashlight can catch these   
predators in the act and not only protect your privacy...   
but bring them to justice.

Here's what to do every time you travel...

  *  Once you get settled into your room (it could be a   
     hotel, B&B, or even a friend's house believe it or   
     not!), sit on the bed and pull out your mini-LED   

  *  Place the light right at the corner of your eye,   
     shining away from you so it's facing in the same   
     direction as your sight path.

  *  Now, look around the room at different objects where a   
     camera could be hidden, like at...

          Alarm clock   
          Fire alarm (on wall or ceiling)   
          Picture frames   
          Even stuffed animals like "nanny-cam" teddy bears

     You really have to think "sneaky" and where someone   
     might hide a camera (and be sure to check the bathroom   
     as well)

  *  What you're looking for is a flash reflection of your   
     light off of any camera's lens.

     It will be fast and sharp (sort of like a camera flash)   
     and you'll notice it instantly.

  *  Once you see that flash, inspect that area very closely   
     and you may find a tiny camera lens.


Don't let these pervs get away with it!

If you find a hidden cam in your room, contact the police   
right away and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.

WHOA!! Check Out These New "Bug Out Bag" Preps

Got a special treat for you today!

Every survivalist is proud of his/her "bug out bag", right?

Well a friend of mine, Jeff, is beyond serious and is constantly   
updating his go-bag and testing out new equipment.

(He's a 10-year combat vet from the 10th Mountain Division and   
193rd so he knows what the hell he's talking about.)

Anyway, his "extreme bug-out bag" book was a huge best-seller   
last year and now he's just updated it with 11 more items that   
are a must-have.


Now you'd think that adding 11 new items to your bug-out bag   
would make it too heavy and bulky, right?

Not the way Jeff plans out his go-bag.

You see, since roads are likely to be in full gridlock from the   
masses of "unprepared" clogging up highways... breaking down...   
running out of gas... it's quite possible you may be forced to   
walk to your next destination.

And any time you're forced to evacuate to a secondary safety   
retreat, your goal is to get there as quickly as possible and in   
the best shape you can be in to survive the crisis.

If your bag is loaded up with a bunch of heavy, worthless junk,   
you're in serious trouble - if you get to your destination at   

That's why you've gotta see these 52 little-known bug out   


Some of them are pretty weird... but ALL of them will prove   
useful in even the most extreme bug-out conditions and each item   
comes with a full explanation of what makes it so critical.

You'll discover secrets like...

  *  A sneaky "weapon" that looks like a toy, but is actually a   
     mini-shotgun in disguise! (It's so small, you can even hide   
     it in your pocket!)

  *  A simple way to safeguard your feet for long hikes (even   
     through swamps and streams!) without adding a bunch of   
     worthless weight to your go-bag.

  *  A secret from SERE School (Survival, Evasion, Resistance,   
     Escape) to help you keep your sense of freedom and liberty   
     alive and well - no matter how tough things get!

  *  A 6" tube that can literally mean the difference of   
     traveling 12-15 miles per day... to 120-150!  (If you follow   
     Jeff's scavenging tips.)

  *  A hidden threat most people don't even realize exists   
     immediately after a disaster... and the nasty weapon that   
     could protect you and your loved ones if you're ever   

There's a whole lot more bug-out secrets where those came from,   
so be sure to go and check out this brand new bug-out bag book   
now here...


No matter how "experienced" you are,  you're gonna find some   
amazing new additions you're gonna want to pick up!

Urban Survival Tip: How To Keep Water Fresh For 4 Weeks Refrigeration

When it comes to retaining water during a natural disaster it should be your first priority. If you haven’t done so already start stock piling water. Also stockpile other supplies such as food, first aid supplies along with weapons to defend yourself with if things go from bad to worse.

But if at this very moment an earthquake were to happen there is a way you can immediately begin storing water and a lot of it. If water is still running after a natural disaster fill up all sinks and tubs in your home. You can also obtain water from toilets and hot water heaters but there is a proper procedure in obtaining water from these locations which I won’t get into in today’s post.

With obtaining water from your bath tub you can also purchase a waterBOB Emergency Drinking Water Storage kit with collects up to 100 gallons of fresh drinking water and keeps it fresh for 4 weeks

    Includes siphon pump to allow you to dispense the water as you need it
    Fits every standard bathtub
    Stays within USFBA guidelines
    Keep style packaging sealed in plastic
    Constructed of heavy duty food grade plastic
    Store up to 100 gallons of fresh drinking water
    Keeps water fresh up to 4 weeks

Remember the human body can only go without water for 3 days.
