Both my wife’s and my sides of the family have plenty of medical professionals in them. My mother was a nurse practitioner in the U.S. Army. Most of my aunts, uncles, and cousins work at hospitals. My wife’s side of the family has a similar makeup.
One would think we’d be pretty adept at first aid, but we’re not. My wife is far better at it than I am, but we still find ourselves referring to videos or calling relatives for assistance. In a crap-hits-the-fan scenario, that may no longer be possible so we’ve been trying to get much better at handling our own minor or even major medical situations.
Most experienced preppers will tell you having a great first aid kit is an essential first step. We’ve had a good one, but for the past couple of months I’ve been researching the various ones available before making a purchase. They’re not cheap, so I’ve been very hesitant to buy any old kit I found at Walmart or Amazon.
After much consideration, I’ve finally settled on MyMedic. I chose the mid-level kit for our family of four. As much as I’d like the Big Daddy kit, it runs between $600-$1200 and I just can’t justify that high of an expenditure.
The economy is tanking. We recommend two America First precious metals companies. Our Gold Guy delivers personal service with no gimmicks. JD GoldCo offers a wide array of products. You can’t go wrong with either (or both).
Thankfully, the “MYFAK Large,” which is described in the video above, appears to have just about everything we’ll need. I especially liked that it’s great for both bugging in and bugging out. I watched a few reviews of it and they were mostly very positive. Even the EMT who trashes pretty much every kit on the market (I forgot his name but he dissuaded me from buying one of the Amazon kits I almost grabbed) gave it mostly positive reviews. He recommended replacing the tourniquet and a couple of smaller items but otherwise gave it kudos.
Here’s the MyMedic affiliate link for the MYFAK, which is about half the price of the one I got and should work well for most. We went with the Large because there are four of us. They have a smaller version and a couple of big daddies, but I went with this one as being the most cost-effective for our familial situation.
We ALMOST went with building our own. They have med packs that are super-convenient. We were considering mixing and matching those plus items that we got from elsewhere, but the pre-made kits are so well organized I decided to just supplement with some additional packs.
Here’s an extremely important caveat before buying this or any medkits. You MUST know what you’re doing with everything. Learning basic or even advanced first-aid is a best practice at any point, but now more than ever it’s a must-have skill. If there’s a full-blown societal collapse, hospitals are the last places you’re going to want to go if they’re even still open. A kit is only as good as the person using it, so make sure you and your family know what to do if emergencies arise.
If you have any advice or best practices you’d like to share, please comment below. Questions are always very welcomed, though as I said first-aid is not my greatest skill. I’m learning a bit more every day, so hopefully I’ll be well-versed before it’s too late.
Most “Conservative” News Outlets Are on the Big Tech Teat
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), an Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCP). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would make the bold move. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken free from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- ZStack: Improve your immune system with the Z-Stack protocol or rejuvenate your body from vaccines or shedding with Z-DTox by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them JD sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- MyPatriotSupply: Stock up on long-term food, survival gear, and other things that you’ll need just in case things don’t recover and we keep heading towards apocalypse.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
