New Tactical Medical Device - The TopClosure 3S TMS


This is a pretty neat new product that addresses the issue of open wound closure without or with the addition of sutures. I can see this being used in the field until the casualty can be evacuated to a proper care facility. Much easier than trying to suture in the field.

TopClosure® Tension Relief System (TRS) - an innovative new technology for the management of simple and complex wounds is now available for skin stretching and secure wound closure. The TopClosure® TRS is easy to apply, safe to use and leads to excellent results by providing simple solutions for complex problems. The TopClosure® TRS is intended to temporarily stretch skin tissues to aid closure and healing of post traumatic, surgical, acute and chronic skin wounds.
  • The TopClosure® TRS is an important innovative trauma management device that can be applied in combat applications for temporary primary wound closure while complying with basic trauma guidelines.
     
  • This new device can be used in battalion First-Aid stations and field hospitals by surgeons, non-surgeon physicians and military medics.
     
  • TopClosure® TRS should be applied as a new methodology for the military Combat Casualty Care (CCC) protocol and be included in Combat Casualty Response Kits.


You can read more about this product at the manufacturers website.

If anyone has a source for these, chime in here. This are something that we should all have in our preps.

Ax Wielding Jihadi Attacks 2 NYPD Cops


Here we go again. Sudden Jihad Syndrome.
Zale Thompson has been named as the ax-wielding maniac who tried to kill four NYPD officers in Queens on October 23. Thompson managed to injure two of the cops before Thompson was shot dead on a Queens’ street after he attacked a group of cops with an 18 inch ax. Officer Kenneth Healey received a wound to the head in the incident. Another cop, Joseph Meeker, was injured. Both are rookies in the NYPD. Thompson attacked them without saying a word, according to witnesses.
Videos and more about his radical Islamic connection can be found here. Read this before you read the one below. It connects the dots whereas the network touting itself as "the most trusted name in news" does not.

The first paragraph in CNN's report stresses that there is no Islamic link. Of course the source is an unnamed Sr. LEO.
Based on everything authorities have seen so far, there is no indication that Zale Thompson, the man accused of wounding two New York police officers with a hatchet, was tied to any radical Islamist groups, a senior law enforcement official told CNN Friday.
"The lady doth protest too much, methinks."

Is this the start of more?

Stay vigilant.

Stay armed.

5 Year Old Points Crayon and Says "PEW PEW" School Flips Out

Unless you're 5 years old in public school.
Stories like this reaffirm my decision to homeschool my kids.

MOBILE, Alabama (WPMI) – An Alabama mother is furious that her 5-year-old daughter was forced to sign a school contract stating she wouldn’t kill herself or anyone else at school.
 

School officials told Rebecca, who did not want to give her last name, they had to send 5-year-old Elizabeth home after an incident in class.
 

“They told me she drew something that resembled a gun. According to them she pointed a crayon at another student and said ‘pew pew’,” Rebecca explained.
 

Rebecca says her daughter was then given a questionnaire to evaluate her for suicidal thoughts and given a Mobile County Public School safety contract to sign stating she wouldn’t kill herself or others.
 

“While I was in the lobby waiting, they had my 5-year-old sign a contract about suicide and homicide,” Rebecca says. “There should be a different way to handle this situation. If this is protocol it needs to be looked at again.”
 

Rebecca is pushing to have the incident removed from her child’s record. She says school officials have requested her child see a psychiatrist. She refused.

Kudos to the mom.

Political Correctness has turned everyone into a cowardly lion and those who don't conform into mentally ill psychopaths.

Mosby: Combat Mindset and Killer Instinct

Many people in the firearms and prepper-survivalist communities like to ramble about their impressive “combat mindset” and “killer instinct.” People who have repeatedly faced violence successfully, especially those who have done so in a professional capacity, understand that guns and gear are of tertiary importance, at best. Even physical conditioning is secondary to the critical importance of cultivation and continuous development of a proper mental attitude— combat mindset.
 
That mindset is composed of three attributes: an unwavering but well-founded conviction in the effectiveness of your training and ability, an absolute willingness, if not anticipation, to apply that training to kill bad people, and the intestinal fortitude to overcome whatever obstacles arise in order to survive to lay hate and discontent on the enemy.
 

Unwavering by well-founded conviction in your ability demands a “software-centric” approach to your training. It’s not about the guns and gear. Even within the ranks of the most vocal “three-percenters” there exist masses of gun owners who purchase an AR-15 or AK-47 at their local sporting goods store, along with a couple boxes of ammunition, based on the advice of some blog writer they’ve never met. Then, the rifle and the ammunition get tossed in a closet or onto a shelf in their “bunker” basement, to be promptly forgotten.

These people place absolute faith in the weapon, expecting it to solve their potential future problems. The firearm becomes a sort of magical talisman in their imagination. This is the “hardware-centric” approach that is the hallmark of amateurs.
 

The professional recognizes that man is a tool user, and values his tools. Nevertheless, he understands that those tools are inanimate objects. The weapon is only effective in the hands of a trained and aggressive operator. The trained, experienced gunslinger accepts the inarguable logic that training is more important than specific tools. If the only weapon available to the professional is a .22LR zip gun, he’ll use it effectively.  There is no time or space for the sin of mediocrity in the software-centric approach to training. The professional doesn’t go to the local strip mall karate dojo for his combatives training. He doesn’t mistake plinking beer cans in the backyard with a .22LR as combat rifle training.

Then go train. Hard.

Øbama says, "ISIL Is Not Islamic" - Taqiyya

Notice the 'horns'.
On the eve today's 13th anniversary of 9/11, Øbama gave a speech on how the US was going to eradicate ISIL and said, "ISIL is not Islamic."

He sure loves those Muzzies. So much in fact, one has to wonder if he was just caught red handed committing Taqiyya. 
There are two forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, taqiyya and kitman.  These circumstances are typically those that advance the cause Islam - in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them. 
But...but...but...he's not a Muslim! Really? After everything he has done to advance Islam, promote Muslims into sensitive positions of the government, and use the IRS to grant tax exempt status to Islamic 'charities' while denying them for conservative and Christian groups, you have to ask yourself, why?

ISIS or ISIL or al-Qaeda 2.0 or whatever you want to call them is doing exactly what Islam calls them to do. How is that not Islamic?

The proof is in their unholy book. Surely Øbama knows what's in it, given his background.


Any questions?
