Tony interviews Cope Reynolds, founder of The White Mountain Militia to explore how Militias, like so many prepping subjects, is so completely misunderstood; as the significant distinction between Militia perception and reality is fueled by considerable media and government mischaracterization.  Militias are NOT racist, skinhead organizations that are anti-government, rather militias are anti-corruption in government as they serve to protect the local community. Cope explains how the Militias our founding fathers intended to frame with the second amendment as were a direct response to the tyrannical, corrupt government of their time, ready to respond to any threat to their neighborhood safety, foreign or domestic. With today’s increasingly tyrannical, corrupt government, Militia formation is more relevant and necessary that at any other time in our nation’s history.  Cope covers why is participating in a militia a good idea with a focus on legal, moral and ethical Militia training with highly principled leaders.  Militias are a constitutional right; learn how to start a constitutional militia in your community with this show.

Rachel and Tony discuss how 70-90% of processed foods are now made with Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) sources.  The viruses and bacteria that go into these GMO seeds and the foods they create are supposedly intended to only affect the pests and weeds that lower crop yields.  There is credible independent research that indicates that these GMO foods are greatly contributing to the dramatic rise in cancer and many other illnesses that plague Americans.  The long term effects of these GMO processes are woefully under studied in America in contrast to over 60 other developed countries that either mandate labeling or have an outright ban on GMO products.  GMO products are likely creating a health care crisis of epic proportions and powerful forces are deliberately thwarting government oversight of the rapidly growing GMO trend that so many other countries are regulating.

Tony & Rob discuss the mission of C.A.A.S.E.S. (Children’s and Adult Safety Education Services) Shoot Right which is to teach both children and adults proper weapons training and use for both firearms and archery.  CAASES offers classes at their facility as well as at various expos in the state including Ben Avery’s Frontier Days Expo and PrepperFestAZ Expo.  This show “take a way” is how CAASES can be used by those already familiar with firearms to help enroll those who are intimidated with firearms to become comfortable with them.  CAASES uses air guns which have a relatively quiet report in comparison to a firearm that uses gunpowder.  The instructional environment is often without ear protection and is much less threatening than a live round firing range.  Also it is a lot cheaper to use pellets instead of ammo, 500 rounds of 22 caliber pellets only cost $8.00, so it is a much more cost effective way to improve your shooting skills than live ammo.  They also cover the new firearms laws in Arizona that now allow air guns in most hunting scenarios.

This is Tony’s first of many interviews with one of the true founders of the preparedness movement, Mr. James Talmage Stevens A.K.A. Dr. Prepper.  40 years ago James wrote what many still consider today as the very best comprehensive soup to nuts prepper book called “Making The Best of the Basics:  The Family Preparedness Handbook” which has sold over 800,000 copies and is widely regarded as the bible of the self-reliance movement.  James and Tony compare and contrast real preppers from the extremist portrayals of preppers on TV shows like Doomsday Preppers.  This is a great show for beginning preppers and particularly for those who are skeptical of the prepping movement as it help break away the stereotypes of preppers as portrayed on TV and illustrates that REAL preppers are simply people who live the Boy Scout motto: “BE PREPARED.”
