Join your host Steven Menking as he returns for a third year of On the Objective broadcasts. The inaugural discussion of 2019 is with author James Walton. James is now the proud owner of Prepper Broadcasting Network, and the interview focuses on his aspirations for the platform. One major goal is to redefine the connotation of the ‘prepper’ label. We all have to think seriously about our decisions and take practical steps to mitigate risks as best we can, but culture has rendered that mentality as belonging only to individuals on the fringe. These are pivotal distinctions that need to be made and conversations that need to be had in the year ahead. Thanks for joining us On the Objective!

This article from Sgt Tim can be found in its original context on his new website: The Freeman’s Watch
As with every anniversary of the deadly events of September 11, 2001, we will likely be inundated this week with a plethora of articles on the heroes from that day and those that gave their lives that others might live. Though we, as a nation, will never forget the events of that day and the impact it had on our nation, we need look no further than the disaster that struck recently in South Texas, and the events now unfolding throughout Florida and the Southeast to understand that it is a remarkable part of the American spirit to face adversity with a steadfast courage and open heart for those in need. Though I write this article on this, the 16th anniversary of that day in 2001, I am not going to write about those events, the controversy surrounding it, or even about the events of the most recent natural disasters in our country. I prefer to write about my own experience, and those of my family, to illustrate the point that I will make at the conclusion of this article.
I have never been in a hurricane, and I have only been through very mild tremors in the way of earthquakes. However, I have seen my fair share of wildfires that spread through the woods of southeastern Oklahoma, where I grew up, and if you talk about Oklahoma and natural disasters, you have to talk about tornadoes. I have seen a few twisters in my day, as well.
Before I get into the meat of this story, I want to talk a little about someone that from my first breaths in this world was like Superman to me. I lost him in October 2014, but my dad was a very special person in my life, and he instilled in me the values that I carry with me to this day. He believed in working hard and in helping your fellow man. And those two values of his are on display in the first story that I will tell in this article.

Our regular open call will take place tonight, Monday 8/15, at 8:00pm eastern time via Skype. To join in please send us a contact request on Skype by searching for our account name amateursociety. If you have any questions or need clarification, please drop us a line on the contact page here or email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tonight we will be discussing natural disasters. Whether it’s flooding, earthquakes, volcanoes, fires, landslides, tsunamis, tornadoes, hurricanes, and a host of other events, there are many questions and few answers when it comes to instances of these destructive forces. How often do they occur? Is there any change in frequency? What level of risk do they entail? What can we do about them? Can proactive steps be taken? Is there anything to the plethora of weather modification and geoengineering reports that are out there?
We welcome your participation in an open, honest conversation where everyone is encouraged to share their thoughts and ask questions we don’t typically investigate. Thanks for your time and we look forward to speaking with you!
