Real news daily. M.D. Creekmore provides a smart summary of the days ten most fascinating news stories…

1. Don’t Get In A Car!

flaming carWith all the talk of a war with a nuclear-armed North Korea, tensions with Russia and other nuclear threats abroad and at home (nuclear terrorism) tips like these might help to save your life or at least extend it somewhat. The best and safest place to be if a nuclear bomb goes off in your area is deep underground. Download Cresson H. Kearny’s excellent book “Nuclear War Survival Skills” (it’s free to download) or if you want the paper version then you can order a copy from Amazon.com.

“No one could fault you for panicking after the sight and roar of a nuclear blast. But there is one thing you should never do, according to Brooke Buddemeier, a health physicist and radiation expert at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. “Don’t get in your car,” he tells Business Insider — don’t try to drive, and don’t assume that the glass and metal of a vehicle can protect you.

Business Insider: If a nuclear bomb explodes nearby, here’s why you should never, ever get in a car.

+ Also read – How to build a 10X6 ft. storm shelter for under $2,000. While it’s not as good as a dedicated nuclear bomb shelter, it’s far better than your car and can be used as a model and greatly improved upon using the info in the book Nuclear War Survival Skills that I linked to above.

+ How to Build a Fallout Shelter from The New York Times.

2. As Sweet As Honey.

If you’ve been reading this site for awhile then you probably know that if given a choice I prefer to try natural remedies first while leaving the pharmaceuticals at the pharmacy, or to pick up the prescription and then using natural remedies as a cure while saving the pharmaceuticals until needed at a later date.  However, that’s just me and you should alway seek medical advice from a qualified medical professional before deciding on a treatment for whatever affliction you might have.

While most of us are at least somewhat familiar with the antibiotic effects of Manuka honey, I think we haven’t been giving it the attention it deserves. According to a recent article at Health Nut News:  Manuka honey kills more bacteria than all available antibiotics.

+ If you can’t find Manuka honey for sale in your area then you can do like I do and order if through Amazon.com.

+ Prescription for Nutritional Healing, Fifth Edition: A Practical A-to-Z Reference to Drug-Free Remedies Using Vitamins, Minerals, Herbs & Food Supplements.

3. Mark Zuckerberg: Free Money for Everyone!

Mark Zuckerberg while giving a speech at Harvard said that there should be free money for everyone… For those of you who don’t know Mark Zuckerberg dropped out of Harvard to build Facebook after ripping the idea off from others who later successfully sued him, however, he still went on and has made billions from the idea and now has a listed net worth of 61.9 billion dollars.

But we won’t be seeing him handing out his own money to see this Universal Basic Income idea of his to fruition. Hey, Mark, put your money where your mouth is or shut your pie hole – in other words, cowboy up and divide your ill-gotten billions up and hand it out to everyone wanting a free income for doing nothing. CNBC: Mark Zuckerberg joins Silicon Valley bigwigs in calling for the government to give everybody free money.

4. War With North Korea on the Horizen?

It sure looks that way. U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis turned up the heat on North Korea and its main benefactor, China, on Saturday, calling the North Koreans a “clear and present danger” and chastising the Chinese for coercive behavior in the South China Sea. CBS News: Defense Secretary Mattis turns up heat on North Korea and China.

No doubt South Korea and Japan would see the bulk of North Koreas retailiation but the big question is what will China do if the U.S. goes preemtive on the DPRK?

5. Don’t Leave The House!

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly on Friday said the terror threat is worse than most realize, saying some people would “never leave the house” if they knew the truth. The Hill: DHS chief: If you knew what I knew about terror, you’d ‘never leave the house’.

On the flipside by keeping everyone in a constant state of fear of the threat of terrorism they (federal police agencies) increase their power, reach and budget.

6. Maybe He Should Be In The WWE Instead of Politics…

Republican Greg Gianforte won Thursday’s special election for the U.S. House in Montana, defeating Democratic challenger Rob Quist despite being charged with bodyslamming UK Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs the day before. Breitbart: Greg Gianforte Stuns Media, Democrats in Montana House Win.

7. More Trampling on the Fourth Amendment by Federal Police Agencies 

The main reason that I was for Rand Paul during the last presidential election was that he is and always has been a strong supporter of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights and was our best and probably last chance of stopping the federal government and it’s federal police enforcers from continuing their illegal spying on Americans.

Once top secret U.S. intelligence community memos tell cite instances of “disregard” for rules, inadequate training and “deficient” oversight and even deliberately sharing spy data with forbidden parties. Circa: Declassified memos show FBI illegally shared spy data on Americans with private parties.

8. Sick. Reading This Turned My Stomach.

A shocking new video from the Center for Medical Progress catches Planned Parenthood executives discussing gruesome abortion procedures and the sale of body parts from aborted babies for profit. Several attendees made jokes about eyeballs from aborted babies and other aborted baby body parts “rolling down into their laps.” Life News: Video Catches Planned Parenthood Abortionist Joking About Eyeballs From Aborted Babies “Rolling Into Our Laps”.

9. Boehner: Tax reform is ‘just a bunch of happy talk’.

Former Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Wednesday that plans for massive tax reform initiated by President Trump and House Republicans are “just a bunch of happy talk.” As I said here a few days ago… it’s not going to happen. They know that it’s not going to happen. It’s all for the show. Via The Hill.

10. The Bottom of The News.

+ According to new research, the age women claim to have the best and most fulfilling sex is actually 36.

+ I sure wish that I had been awash in “white privilege” back a few years ago when I was homeless and living in a tent. The College Fix: University training how to ‘reduce the impact of white privilege’.

+ White privilege? Obama and Michelle living it up after leaving the White House – Just to run down his passport stamps since January: Virgin Islands, French Polynesia, Italy, Germany, Scotland. PLUS the reported $60,000,000 he and Michelle are getting for their memoirs. White privilege – that must be it since after all, he is half white. Via TMZ.

+ Hillary still coughing… blames allergies – apparently, she can’t afford allergy medication… maybe, her husband Slick Willy spent all their money at Orgy Island… we’ll probably never know and I don’t really want to.

+ I was wondering what’s wrong with some people – maybe this explains it – Sleep deprivation causes the brain to ‘eat’ self

    I’m late in responding to this but: The advice to never get in a car after a nuclear attack is not necessarily good advice.

    A 2010 study says that we would be FAR better off sheltering in a car than than running through fallout to reach a ‘safe’ location. Reason: Getting into a car before fallout lands on you is infinitely preferable to having fallout land on you, especially if you cannot wash it off when you get to ‘safety.’ True, you can take off your contaminated clothes and comb your hair, but you have gotten serious contact exposure before that. What if you get to a safe place and people won’t let you in because, guess what? They understand you are contaminated.

    “The Department of Homeland Security financed a multiagency modeling effort led by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California. The scientists looked at Washington, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and other big cities, using computers to simulate details of the urban landscape and terrorist bombs.

    The results were revealing. For instance, the scientists found that a bomb’s flash would blind many drivers, causing accidents and complicating evacuation.

    The big surprise was how taking shelter for as little as several hours made a huge difference in survival rates.”

    “Even staying in a car, the studies show, would reduce casualties by more than 50 percent; hunkering down in a basement would be better by far.”

    So according to Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, if you can get to a high quality shelter without getting contaminated, do so, but if you can’t, even staying in a car would vastly improve your chances of survival.
