“What To Put Into A Survivalist Pandemic Response Kit”

First of all, take this article for what it is, a suggested pandemic response kit to have on hand prior to actually needing it. There are a number of reasons to make sure you have a kit such as this on hand, but none more important than not having to be involved in a panic to hurry to the store to purchase the items needed. Do not, I say again, do not be fooled on this past fake pandemic of covid 19 to tell you all that all you need is a mask that doesn’t help. It’s important to know some true basics and always important to be prepared for anything, to reduce panic and fear later. I am not a doctor by any means, but I have been militarily trained in specialty courses of NBC (Nuclear, Biological, Chemical) warfare, Sanitation, and decontamination, as well as mandatory medical training as a police officer. So from that, I want to share a suggestive pandemic kit everyone should have on hand.
Before I go into the contents of the kit, what is influenza and how is it contracted? Let’s see what the CDC (Center For Disease Control and Prevention) says. They say the flu is a contagious respiratory illness, caused by influenza viruses. So when people with the flu cough, sneeze, and breath outwardly, the virus becomes airborne and in turn, you can inhale these droplets that contain flu viruses, which infect your cells, and then actually make copies of themselves within your system that then trigger inflammation in your body causing flu symptoms. The severe inflammation can cause lung damage and other serious problems, then the immune system responds by sending proteins called antibodies to fight the infection. Some people experience serious flu complications that can lead to hospitalization and even death. There are some flu vaccines that have shown to reduce the risk of catching the flu and lessen the severity of symptoms. The CDC says that everyone six months and older need a flu vaccine each year.
Now, it doesn’t matter if you’re a pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine person, this article is not about your choice in any way. I’ve included this Ted Talk on that topic to help add to your decision-making knowledge. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMWNq9cCXU4
Let’s start with preventive maintenance of a pandemic. First and foremost, every day of our lives we should be cognizant of our personal hygiene, such as brushing of teeth, washing of hands after any possible contaminations, washing and prepping foods, etc. This alone reduces risks tremendously. Finally paying attention to current events, so that you aren’t caught off guard when panic hits society as a whole.
What goes into the pandemic kit that you can have stored readily in preparation;
1. Storage Container: The number of items you have to put into the kit will dictate the size of your container.
2. The first items in the container are your basic EDC (Everyday Carry), a knife, flashlight, lighter, and multitool. These items are basic to any survival situation.
3. Bar of Soap: These are basic and always good to have multiple bars in your kit.
4. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer: Make sure to have multiple bottles, as soap and water are necessary and may not always be available where ever you are. Hand sanitizers do very well in killing infectious agents.
5. Baby Wipes: Tested safe for your body and unlike sponges and rags that spread germs, you use one wipe and then dispose of it, rendering yourself and your surroundings clean. You can even use makeup cleansing and remover wipes as all of these are safe on the skin.
6. Disinfecting Wipes: Excellent for wiping down surfaces and objects other than your skin. These are superb and kill 99% of viruses, germs and are also disposable.
7. Respirator Masks: These come in many styles and costs, from surgical masks to full-blown respirators and gas masks. With the virus able to go airborne and in all likelihood that you will be around others, who could possibly be infected, these are a very wise item to have in your pandemic kit. Keep in mind that disposable masks need to be disposed of just like any other biohazard material; these can be found online or at your local paint stores.
8. Ziplock Bags / Biohazard Bags: These are concealable and always good to have, as a way to dispose of your contaminated material.
9. Nitrile Gloves/Rubber Gloves: Since pathogens travel both ways to and from others, one of the main uses of medical gloves is to prevent cross-contamination; a no-brainer.
10. Disinfectant Spray: After cleaning a surface area with your favorite multi cleaner it may look clean but still does not disinfect the germs, so that is why disinfectant sprays are important. One of the tops on the market is, of course, Lysol, and all other disinfectants are very similar, and most actually do kill 99% of germs left behind. There are also pure natural disinfectants like Puregreen24 available.
11. A glass spray bottle with a bleach/water combo for disinfecting areas and items as well.
12. Eye Protection: There are many reasons to have eye protection depending on what the pandemic actually is. Therefore having a set of safety goggles, swimming goggles, bikers glasses, etc., is a must, and all will give adequate protection.
13. Immune Boosters: Along with a healthy diet having preventive maintenance immune boosters on hand to start taking at the onset of a pandemic in your area will help your system to “boost” its ability to fight infection from the get-go; such as colloidal silver (a supplement), olive leaf extract, Vitamin C, and others. These can be found online and throughout your local pharmacies.
Once you put this kit together, your confidence level will strengthen and you will have lowered possible future panic levels.

Gregg Cummings: An Introduction

Hello my Brother and Sister Patriots and War-fighters, my name is Gregg C. Cummings, and I will be sharing with you my strong perspectives on our patriotism, our sovereignty, and our condition of readiness. I developed this website to do just that, to hear from the perspectives of veterans, and well-seasoned patriots on issues of the day, as well as life after active duty, but before we dive into those details, I need to tell you a little more about me. I was born to understand the love for my country, not just because school said we should be proud, but because I grew up feeling “America” physically, and spiritually through nature, from living on campgrounds that my father managed. Experiencing the “Great American Experiment”, which surrounded every aspect of my life. My father, a WWII, Korean War and Vietnam Veteran, was definitely a personal hero to me as a child. I was camping at a very young age, making homemade bows, arrows, and spears, and running wild in the woods with my brothers before the age ten. We raised horses, hogs, rabbits, chickens, ducks, sheep and working hard alongside my brothers in it all. I joined the boy scouts and became a star scout before it was over. Then because I stuttered as a kid, fighting all the time was a norm for me, so my dad signed me up at a boxing gym to learn how to fight so I would not fall short as often. Watching my very traditional American mother struggle through the years after their divorce gave me a great respect for women in general for the hardships they have faced throughout history and still face today. Joining the military right out of high school I became a small arms specialist, a paratrooper, then became an engineer. During my military career I graduated from numerous combat-oriented trainings, and became a Ranger, Air Assault, Jump Master, and Rappel Master to name a few, and was an Instructor for Air Assault school, and Rappel Master School, as well as a Pre-Ranger Course, and served in real world theaters in Honduras on the Nicaraguan border, in the sands of Iraq and the Island of Haiti. Having duty stations in Ft Benning, GA, Stuttgart Germany, and Ft Bragg N.C. After the military, I finished my schooling with a degree in Sociology. I worked as a family counselor for a little while and a Police Officer for quite some time before jumping right into politics when the Tea Party Movement was triggered throughout the land. I founded We The People Tea Party of Southern Iowa, co-founded the Iowa Grassroots Coalition, and also worked nationally with both Strong America Now and the Tea Party Patriots. More recently, I co-founded and am the Vice President of the US First Defense Coalition, which brings together for the first time many border sheriffs and border citizen rancher coalitions, Angel Moms, as well as voices from the Border Patrol and other law enforcement agencies, into this single communication strength, that gives America a message, a place to go to for real reports, news and statistics, away from the fake and twisted news from the main stream media and congress. You will find this organization under the USFDC tab above. Now, I am consulting for some good companies and political advocacy organizations, such as, Patriot Mission out of Florida, who works with transitioning veterans who want to become entrepreneurs, and also with Vortex Blockchain Technologies out of Des Moines, Iowa, who are developing a one of a kind blockchain voting machines that are so needed and far overdue in our free Republic. So, because I have experience and networks of these focused demographics of Grassroot Americans, Law Enforcement, EMS and Military Veterans, I saw a need to launch this website and in a couple of months, a YouTube channel that will work hand and hand together. The opportunity, need and timing is now, and it is essential for the American society to truly wake up, listen to the voices of those who have sacrificed, so We The People can feed the equal justice needed to achieve our individual pursuit of happiness, as Americans, not as a skin color, not as a class, not as a hyphen, not as a gender, and not divided by sectoring each other away from one another in the name of diversity, but instead to unite each other by melting into one Nation, one People, in the name of university; E Pluribus Unum (from the many, one). Langston Hughes, the famous poet said it best, when he said, “America, the land that never has been, yet, but yet, must be.”He wasn’t trying to dismantle the American dream by those words, but to embrace it by recognizing the importance of what that dream actually is, which later Martin Luther King Jr., gave us a speech to that vision as well. Here is our Mission: To create an absolute, We The People network system, dedicated to Truth, Education, and Products with a seal of approval that everyone can trust.Not out to get rich, but to provide the resources available, so that Americans can prepare themselves before God, country, and family. To make available first-hand information and news straight from the sources themselves. To give resources and “how-to’s”, so the people can educate themselves about our duty to E Pluribus Unum, as citizens of this great Republic. The Columns: I assessed and reached out to key individuals from each of those demographics mentioned above, so they can talk about vital issues within America today from their individual perspectives and expertise, which we all can learn from, and use to debate and grow our Republic back to a healthy standing and beyond. My column will be called “Continue the Mission”, using the same title as this website. This blog is my messages to the world and to all of our great American Citizens, on many topics of discussion. You can expect my opinion, beliefs, and commitments to the oaths I gave on two separate occasions in my life. I will be straight forward, using a whole lot of candor on my positions and strong suggestions that the American people ought to behoove. For the civilian sector, that means your duty, and responsibility to do something. It is incumbent on you to stay engaged and keep our Republic alive and well. Make sure you check out all future articles, from all of our blogs, subscribe to them and reply to each, with your inputs, questions, and start being “E Pluribus Unum”. Strive to unite under our Star Spangled Banner to stay free; as an American Citizen, you must, “Charlie Mike” (Continue the Mission).
