From the Desk of John Rourke – July 13th, 2017


It’s been a little while since I have promoted Emergency Essentials. The reason is simple – they haven’t had great sales. For the month of July, things look much better. Here are a few examples:

Instant Non-Fat Dry Milk, Large Can – Reg. $21.06 / SALE: $13.99

Freeze Dried White Chicken, Cooked & Seasoned – Reg. $55.49 / SALE: $30.00(must buy 6)

55-gallon Water Drum – Reg. $99.94  / SALE: $72.99

Peanut Butter Powder – Reg. $17.72  / SALE: $12.99

The media is hyperventilating over Donald Trump Jr. and his meeting with a Russian lawyer. Did he meet with the lawyer to get dirt on Killary? Yes. Are we really expected to believe that given the same opportunity the Killary Camp would NOT have done the same? Insanity.

Now – Killary’s running mate Tim Kaine has suggested “We are now beyond obstruction of justice,” the Virginia Democrat told CNN Tuesday. “This is moving into perjury, false statements and even potentially treason.”

So Kaine is suggesting the sitting President may be open to a firing squad. Interesting.

I have to admit though I saw many similar statements being thrown around about Obama over the last 8 years. Free speech, right? The difference is Mr. Kaine is a member of Congress. I think he should be a little more careful in his suggestions than “Billy Bob” at the local trailer park.

The new above ground pool is coming along nicely. Having over 3,000 gallons of water available is a good thing. I’m looking into a system where I could tap into that reservoir and use it for firefighting.

Looking for an all-metal gas can? Found a jerry can replica on Amazon for under $30 with free shipping. I believe this is the exact same one I just check out at Tractor Supply – where it was around $60.

I ordered one. Plan to mount it to my bug out trailer which I should get back in October some time. Wish the old military jerry cans were still available at decent prices.
