5 Things to Stockpile for Emergencies

The Marketplace by TheBlaze

Unexpected emergencies remind you how vulnerable you are, especially when you’re caught unprepared. Don’t be. Anyone who has been through one knows that in an emergency situation, every second counts-- and so does every resource. Whether triggered by a natural disaster, an accident or the harmful actions of another person, emergencies can quickly turn stable environments into scenes of chaos and desperation. While you can’t prepare for everything, there are some basic things you can have on-hand to be ready when things go wrong.

September is preparedness month! Shop emergency preparedness products from small businesses at The Marketplace by TheBlaze!

1. Fuel

Fuel is one of the last things people think of when preparing for an emergency. That’s why we’re mentioning it first. Without it, things like cooking, heating, generating electricity and driving quickly fall into the realm of impossibility. While gasoline is good to have on hand, it’s one of the more dangerous fuels when it comes to storage. Propane is much safer and relatively easy to store, which is great if you have a heater or grill that runs on propane. Other fuel options include diesel, charcoal and of course wood. Another alternative is Stove In a Can, which takes fuel that is safe, waterproof and can be stored indefinitely. Whatever fuel you use, don’t forget to have some way to get your fire going-- matches or a fire-starter.

2. Clean Water

Water is our most basic need. To prepare for an emergency where water is absent or contaminated, you’ll either need a supply of water already stored or a way to purify whatever water you are able to collect, such as LifeStraw. Preferably, you’ll have both. Remember, stored water is only useful if it’s accessible. If you ever have to leave your water source, you’ll need a way to carry it with you. You’ll be even better off if you have a way to filter any contaminated water you come across. The Marketplace by TheBlaze offers a wide selection of products that will help you prepare for this and other types of emergencies. Choose products that are compatible with your circumstances.

3. Food

Imagine not being able to go to the grocery store for a week. How about three weeks or a month or five months? While not all emergencies will involve massive food shortages, it’s important to have some extra food on hand, preferably food that is not only sustainable, but also palatable. Stock up on foods that don’t need to be refrigerated. Keep it simple. Just having some jerky, granola bars, peanut butter and tuna on hand is a great way to start. Ready-to-eat meals take it one step further. These can be purchased individually, by the bucket or as part of a survival kit.

4. Light Source

In emergencies that involve power outages, the first thing people go for is a light source. There’s no good in having a ready-to-eat meal or a first aid kit if you can’t find it in the dark. This is also a relatively common emergency. Earthquakes, ice storms, tornados and lightning strikes are just a few of the many causes of power outages. Having reliable light sources on hand can prevent a bad situation from becoming worse. Be sure and keep flashlights, headlamps or a lantern somewhere that is accessible so you can retrieve them in an emergency. Also remember to have plenty of batteries.

5. First Aid Kit

This is a given. First aid kits are meant for responding to emergencies! If you don’t have one, get one. If you’ve had one stashed away in the closet for years, take a look and make it’s stocked with all of the necessities. Check to make sure it contains the necessary items including adhesive bandages, butterfly closures, tape roll bandages, gauze pads, burn cream, antiseptic and gloves. Be sure and keep your first aid kit in a place where the contents will stay sterile and where it is easy to get to in an emergency.

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
