With your host, Category5.

 

Do you ever find yourself feeling like this guy?

No? I guess it’s just me.

I could have been much more well known if I had stayed on Youtube… or not. What’s going on in my brain and what comes out of my mouth are two completely different things.  C5 dont talk good.

You wont be able to count on me for an inspiring motivational rallying speech to the troops. Or to be a public teacher  of my thoughts and skills. The simple act of opening my mouth is generally enough to repel people.

So, it has come as a surprise to everyone that this form of communication has sort of worked for me. I get a bit more time to think about what I am trying to say. It slows down my thought processes enough that I can communicate in Human.

I’m far less likely to have the first words coming out of my mouth be ‘Poop Train’.

For me, it’s just best to stay out of the worlds way… and see civilization occasionally as a twisted tourist destination. A Dystopian Disney Land. If I stay too long, I generally want to release the Ebola virus and let nature take its course.

But for most of my readers that haven’t already, it’s just best to find that middle ground. With that said, Irv Mills put out his latest, Part 8, in the Responding to Collapse series. There is really good stuff in it. Ive got to throw in my big C5 seal of approval on this one.

On our end, the weather has finally made that change. Good thing because I was definitely at wits end.   It’s once again that time of  year when we step outside, look around and say… “What a shithole” and begin assessing all the winter damage that needs to be repaired.

Its that time of year to say the C5 Doomsteaders Prayer-

To whom it may concern, please don’t let me have a heart attack this year.

Lead us not into debilitating power tool related injuries, nor have any falls off anything that might break bones.

And deliver us from Cancer diagnosis.

Amen.

Fuck it. I’m not in a very Typey mood lately. I’m going to pass on giving any survival advice this round. All I have been doing is Bucking, Splitting, Hauling and Stacking next years firewood anyhow. Not very interesting.

Curiously though…. I do wonder if this recent post had anything to do with my Apocalyptic Wood series. Things that make me go hum. Billhooks and Pollards and Coppice, Oh My! https://www.resilience.org/stories/2019-04-03/harvest-timber-without-destroying-forests/

I’m just going to be presenting others work this round in that mixed media reporting you have gotten used to… about stuff I have previously talked about… and has been on my mind lately, generally ruining my mood.

To start, I would say it is now confirmed that the US caused the Venezuela power outage. Good, full report here.

“The first stage, according to Dominguez, was the hacking the main computer and control systems. These systems would have been electronically assaulted, “leaving all computer screens black,” said the President. On Monday the 11th, Maduro also indicated that the attacks were made from Houston and Chicago, reaffirming that the US government itself was responsible for the cyber attack.”

“The second stage, Dominguez said, consisted of the use of electromagnetic pulse devices. Highly sophisticated devices of electronic warfare were aimed at the transmission systems and the control platform, disabling them and inducing the system to overload and fail.”

“The third stage was a direct physical attack to the intermediate platforms of electric distribution. There were five attacks on four substations, with little time between each one them; they were carried out simultaneously to stabilize the general electricity supply.”

And just in case you missed it, Chinese troops have arrived  in Venezuela this week, following Russian troops the week before. (edit a few hours later. This turned out to be fake news. Link removed. Solved)

Soooo…..How did we get here?

And how did Right wing  Fascism and all these acts of Terrorism happen so quickly?  It’s these douche canoes. The Koch Brothers and an underground group of billionaires that did a stealth coup of the US… and too a lesser degree Canada. Bring out the gimp.

part 2

part 3

You all know this quote. Maybe not.

and my favorite smart guy of the moment.

 

Favorite line “Three Nazis walk into a BAR. They don’t get up”. That is MY position. Period.

People philosophize all the time about, How did Nazi Germany happen?

One third of the population dehumanized one third of the population while one third of the population did nothing. And here we are again, watching it in real time. Or ignoring it in real time.

There is only one way I can think of to stop it… and unfortunately… it’s not gun control.

A few years old but you get the idea.

With that unpleasantness said…

Lets end this with a piece of music passed along from Mythos.

This is C5 on the Dark Green Mountain, transmitting from Koch Brothers/US Occupied Canada. If you are receiving this broadcast, YOU are the Rebel Alliance.

" As a daily reader of all of the doomsday blogs, e.g. the Diner, Nature Bats Last, Zerohedge, Scribbler, etc… I must say that I most look forward to your “off the microphone” rants.
