    Question for Preppers/Survivalists or anyone else that cares to provide your opinion

    Trump Finally talked with Putin

    President Trump and Putin had a two hour sit down in Helsinki, Finland. Rather than asking if Russia meddled in the 2016 elections, maybe we should ask "why" Russia would want to meddle.
