Dear Friend of America’s Survival, Inc.:

We had the police and an ambulance at our home Saturday night. A venomous Copperhead snake invaded our home.

Everyone is safe, I can now report. But as we were going in and out of our house, located in rural southern Maryland, a two and one-half foot long poisonous Copperhead snake somehow got into our home. We didn’t know it at the time. I was too busy cooking chicken on the grill. My sons were going in and out of the front door. Somehow, it slipped in without us knowing. We are still trying to figure out whether he came in through our backyard deck door, the garage door, or the front door. Who knows?

As if that wasn’t bad enough, my 12 year-old son, in bare feet, discovered it in our bathroom as he was rushing in to wash his hands! As you can imagine, he screamed in terror. I rushed upstairs as my wife was screaming “Copperhead.”  An adult Copperhead only gets about three feet long. So this had to be an adult with powerful venom. It was slithering around the toilet. When I saw it there, I have to say it was scary.

My son at first thought it was a rubber snake or a toy – until it hissed at him.

We weren’t sure if my boy had gotten bitten so we called 9/11. He had some blood on the tip of one of his toes. Fortunately, it turned out he had stubbed his toe running out of that bathroom. So it wasn’t from a snake bite. He had barely missed stepping on the snake. It hissed but didn’t strike.

We are also fortunate that our 9-pound poodle didn’t find him and try to bark at or bite him. Our dog “Scruffy” would have been dead by now if he had been bitten by the Copperhead. A Copperhead’s venom usually doesn’t kill people but it can kill small dogs.

We were told by the 9/11 operator not to mess with the snake. So the police used my shovel and beheaded it (see photo.)  Normally, when I find a Copperhead (and I have found several of them over the years) we let them loose in the woods. I previously killed one adult snake. Copperheads are usually sluggish and are not aggressive (unless stepped on). But they are the only poisonous snakes we have in our area and they can be deadly.

Do you have any snake stories? Send them to me at

But this newsletter isn’t just for the purpose of telling you my bizarre snake story.

Please make immediate arrangements to be in Washington, D.C. on October 21 for our “Marxism in America” conference. Click here for the details. I will be traveling this week on a fact-finding mission, in order to prepare for our conference.

Also, I rarely grant interviews but decided to do so for the Washington Examiner, a conservative paper in D.C. They wanted information about my religious faith and views. You can read it here.
