    A video posted online Sunday by North Survival shows an individual demonstrate how to make fire with a lemon.

    “This is an awesome survival tip that you don´t want to miss,” he said.

    Using six copper clips, six nails, a piece of wire and steel wool, the person harnessed the electricity from the lemon to heat steel wool up enough to create a small fire.

  • Who is to blame for the violence at Trump rallies?
    Posted March 14, 2016 at 6:38 pm by Michael Mason

    Comments (16)

    It’s no secret that Trump rallies can get rowdy, in fact, that’s probably putting it mildly. On Friday night, Trump cancelled a campaign event due to security concerns.

    A lot of blame has been passed around for the violence and the underlying forces that create it, but does the true responsibility lie with Trump and his supporters? When asked about his responsibility Trump deflects, arguing that he can’t be held responsible for the protesters.

    “I don’t even call them protesters, I call them disrupters,” Trump said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “A lot of them come from Bernie Sanders, whether he wants to say it or not. If he says no, then he’s lying.”

    Who do you think is responsible for the violence?

    Donald Trump’s appeal cuts across several of the Republican Party’s various and often divergent factions, attracting support from both Tea Party and establishment voters to his candidacy. Over the past few months, he’s also earned a heap of praise from well-known entertainment figures.

  • Nancy Reagan’s Son-in-Law Reveals First Lady’s Final Moments and Her Favorite Treat
    Posted March 8, 2016 at 5:26 pm by Tré Goins-Phillips

    Comments (8)

    Former first lady Nancy Reagan died Sunday in her Bel-Air, California, home, and she spent her last moments with her son-in-law, who visited her often.

    When Dennis Revell, who was married to the late Maureen Reagan, former President Ronald Reagan’s first daughter from his first marriage to actress Jane Wyman, visited Reagan’s California home, he would often bring the first lady her favorite snack — “nut-ball cookies,” as she called them.

    They are more commonly known as Mexican Wedding cookies.

    Revell and his current wife, Cindy, drove from their Sacramento home Saturday to Bel-Air to see Reagan, and he brought those cookies with him. They were the last thing she ate before she died.

    “It was always something Nancy looked forward to when we came,” Revell told KFBK NewsRadio host Kitty O’Neal. “And she loved chocolate chip cookies, and other things, [but] these were her favorite.”

    Revell said Reagan would often share the cookies with her doctor, who frequently stopped by her house on Saturday afternoons. According to Revell, sharing those cookies was how Reagan would “socialize” with her doctor.

    “In the later years in her life, she did share one passion that the president did, and that was a passion for sweets,” Revell said. “But her particular food of choice was cookies.”

    Revell said Reagan’s last moments were peaceful, describing his mother-in-law as a “tough lady.”

    If you would like to make Reagan’s favorite cookies, Mexican Wedding cookies, here is the recipe:

    1 cup butter
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 tsp Vanilla
    Gradually added:
    1 3/4 cup four
    1 cup chopped walnuts
    Chill dough for 30 minutes
    Roll cookie dough into balls
    Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes
    Roll each in powdered sugar

  • ‘Trump Has Tiny Hands PAC’ files with the FEC
    Posted March 7, 2016 at 4:25 pm by Kate Scanlon

    Comments (7)

    A new political action committee is weighing in on recent remarks made by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump regarding his anatomy: Trump Has Tiny Hands PAC.

    Henry Kraemer, a resident of Portland, Oregon, filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission on Monday.

    “We believe that it’s critically important for the American people to know about Trump’s tiny baby hands,” Kraemer told TheBlaze. “Say it’s 3 a.m. at the White House and the phone rings, are his hands big enough to pick up the receiver? What’s the point of giving him the nuclear launch codes if his stubby fingers can’t press the launch button?”

    The PAC’s website has a link to a petition on MoveOn.org urging Trump to “release your official hand measurements to the American public.”

    “The republic deserves to know,” it adds.

    According to the PAC’s Twitter account, the group is comprised of “patriotic Americans” who are “committed to educating our fellow citizens” about Trump’s “tiny baby hands.”

    The PAC uses the Twitter account to poke fun at Trump:

    Kraemer said the response to the effort has been “really great.”

    “People love us, but one guy called me a trust-fund baby, which is ironic because I grew up working-class, and their candidate actually has trust-fund baby hands,” Kraemer said.

    Kraemer said that the group doesn’t support any particular candidate but exists “simply to inform” the public about Trump’s hands.

  • Massive delays: Huge crowd and concern for security overwhelmed CPAC
    Posted March 5, 2016 at 7:14 am by Mike Opelka

    Due to an overabundance of caution by the Secret Service, attendance at Friday morning’s CPAC sessions was sparse. A typical Friday morning at the conference would have filled the main ballroom with thousands of attendees as the doors opened at 8 a.m. Instead, speakers in the morning sessions played to a half-filled room, with more people outside of the conference than inside — many of them were not too pleased.

    The Secret Service was trying to make sure all of the VIPs (candidates, congressmen, senators and media celebrities) and the thousands in attendance were safe. The crush of attendees, however, overwhelmed the security setup, creating delays of over an hour.

    CPAC management stepped in and worked with the Secret Service, eventually managing to shrink the lines considerably. Unfortunately, this did not happen until after the majority of the day’s speakers had finished addressing the crowds.

    Here’s what we witnessed Friday morning.

  • We asked an expert: ‘What is the biggest threat to America today?’
    Posted March 4, 2016 at 1:16 pm by Michael Mason

    Today, using amazing technology, we have the ability to predict dangerous tornadoes, hurricanes, winter storms and terrorist attacks. The question is, “Are you ready?”

    I had the pleasure of listening to a lecture from David Jones at the SGK Gun & Pepper Show in Doswell, Virginia. Mr. Jones is a retired 24-year veteran of the U.S. Army, where he served as an chemical officer. He taught nuclear biological and chemical warfare defense to military personnel all over the world. He is recognized as a weapon of mass destruction expert, and six months after 9/11 occurred David was recalled to active duty.

    He spent the next 22 months in the Middle East traveling to 16 different countries conducting vulnerability assessments on U.S. interests in the area. Jones is now an emergency management specialist working for the federal government at a secure facility and has worked with the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, NASA and the U.S. Air Force Global Strike Command where he was the only civilian on a nuclear weapons accident response team.

    After his talk, I had one question: “What is the biggest threat to America today?” Check out his response:

    Another thing I learned at the expo is, in spite of all the capabilities for advance warnings, Americans are still quite poor at preparing for these disasters. Many of us really believe that it can’t happen to us.

    In a 2006 poll conducted by Time magazine, 56 percent of respondents said that they had gone through a major disaster. However, only 16 percent believed they were “well prepared” for the next one. Denial, it seems, is an American way of life.

    During his lecture, Mr. Jones also “removed the mystery” of the Zika virus:

    Ted Cruz is the first of the 2016 presidential candidates to be honored with a “Bad Lip Reading” video dedicated just to him.

    We’re betting there will be others to follow, paying “tribute” to Donald Trump, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (D) and possibly former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
