kicking the hornet’s nest

Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined. — Patrick Henry A good friend and fellow practical philosopher has been regularly telling me over the last few years that It has to break in order to fix the myriad messes that have evolved in our current world human societies. Over the years others who I share mutual respect with have tried to get me into that frame of reference. But that has always been too much for me to accept. I have spent a great deal of myself over the last two decades working to avert exactly […]

constitutional sheriff

Elizabeth Hodge interviewed me when I was running for Ada County sheriff. I just tripped over it today. The interview explains the concept as well as I have seen it done. It is still valid, and incredibly valuable to those USofA counties who have elected constitutional sheriffs. Coming out of nowhere with no significant support, I shocked the 20-year incumbent by garnering 40,943 votes. The incumbent was startled. He had not been in any contest that close, and sure as heck didn’t expect it from my campaign. Unfortunately, it was only 26% of the votes. I suspect $10,000 in campaign finances could have won it for us. I’m happy nobody did that to me. I like where I am. […]

gun control pushback

REBELLION: Second Amendment Sanctuary Cities, Counties, and STATES Spring Up Across the Country By Dagny Taggart Sanctuary cities aren’t just for immigrants anymore. A growing number of states, counties, cities, and towns are declaring themselves “Second Amendment Sanctuaries” and are refusing to enforce gun-control laws that infringe on the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. While adopting ordinances and resolutions to defy gun laws isn’t a new tactic, momentum is rapidly building – likely in response to increasing calls for more gun control at state and federal levels. Sheriffs in several states say they will NOT enforce gun control laws. Sanctuary counties and towns are passing resolutions that state no funding will be used to enforce unconstitutional laws […]

North Carolina county declares itself a gun sanctuary

One down, 3,141 to go. If your county is anything other than Cherokee County, North Carolina you need to contact your county rulers to explain local control and the original separation of powers defined by The Constitution of These United States. I promise to do my fair share. Will you? from the American Thinker By Rick Moran The Board of Commissioners in Cherokee County in North Carolina has passed a resolution — largely symbolic — declaring the county a “gun sanctuary.” The gist of the resolution: Furthermore, any regulation of the right to keep and bear arms or affiliated firearm rights that violates the Second, Ninth, Tenth, or Fourteenth amendments to the US Constitution, that violates Article I, Sections 5, […]

Good Guys With Guns

Progress Report 10 August 2018     Dear GOOD GUYS & GOOD GALS,   I am pleased to announce that STEPHEN WILLEFORD — one of the consummate “good guys with a gun” — gave us a great interview last week where he shared his story about the mass-shooting at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on 05 November 2017.   If you watch the clip of Stephen’s story below, it should be clearer than ever why it is NECESSARY for individual Americans to “keep and bear arms” in places like churches, schools, concerts and other public spaces.  It should also be clear why citizens should be trained — as was Stephen Willeford, an NRA Member and former firearms […]

Good Guys With Guns

James Jaeger and Matrix Productions are well along production of an important, positive movie. I subscribe to his mailing list, receiving occasional updates and progress reports. The film crews have completed most of the interviews with The Big People who stand tall in defense of armed self-defense. There are a lot of work hours yet to go before we get to see this film. Meanwhile, he just sent this insightful explanation of how modern movie production functions, in particular how the financing and industry practices determine most of what the primary media outlets present… and how alternatives actually reach a significantly larger audience… and how that has already changed politics today. – Ted FINANCING CONSERVATIVE MOVIES Would the Founding Fathers […]

The Show

We are in the time and place of the greatest overthrow in the history of mankind. It would be a shame to not peek in at least once in a while. Here I share one heckuva peek… And links to see more… Oh so much more. … Q: “Watch the resignations” In this video 412 Anon helps us do exactly that. The four researching activists in the show also cover other really exciting Drain The Swamp news. The one thing I struggled with in the above video was following through on some of the suggestions made by the participants. So I watched it again, taking notes, then stumbing around the world wide web so I could help you with any […]

Good Guys With Guns

Progress Report 29 June 2018 Dear GOOD GUYS & GOOD GALS, I am happy to report that we have had four successful film shoots. One to Connecticut to interview WALTER REDDY, ROSIE HAAS and SHEILA MATTHEWS. Another to Massachusetts to interview SHERIFF MACK, LARRY PRATT, CLIVEN BUNDY, DAN McGONIGLE, DAN WOS, DAVID KOPACZ and KIRK WHATLEY and the last to Montana to interview STEWART RHODES and PASTOR CHUCK BALDWIN.

Stewart Rhodes and Pastor Baldwin’s interviews – which were done 28 June 2018 as scheduled – will be up at that URL in about 5 […]

Should the FDA have power over you?

from Downsize DC Downsize DC wants to make the FDA advisory, not dictatorial. Retweet We’re bringing back a bunch of old Downsize DC campaigns, starting with Make the FDA Advisory, not mandatory. More will follow. You asked for these campaigns. We’re thrilled to comply. It didn’t happen sooner because we’ve been solving some problems. And the solutions we’ve developed should lead to big progress. It began when we extensively tested a new advertising approach in November and December. This was not just one ad but an overall approach. And it worked better than expected! We were electrified by the expectation of an army of DC Downsizers to come! But there was a technical problem with our letter to Congress web […]

Freedomista gathering in Spokane this week

The Red Pill Expo starts this Thursday. Awesome speakers Great topics Wonderful people I promised myself when I found this one would be nearby in Spokane, Washington that I would FERSHUR not miss it this year. I have heard good stuff about these events, the line up is stellar, and the opportunity to spend a couple days with my peers would be a highlight of the year. Unfortunately, it coincides with national amateur radio Field Day where I promised to play certain roles in support of local alternative and emergency communications. Now I remember how I miss it every year. Rats! BUT, you probably do not have the same conflict. Check it out. Give serious consideration to participating. The Red […]

Good Guys With Guns

This is a crowd-funded movie exposing the ridiculousness of the elite-funded anti-gun message that has a near-monopoly on the airwaves. This movie will be an antidote to the ubiquitous “good guys are defenseless” sermons. MATRIX Entertainment has produced several excellent movies. I bought and watched several. That is entry-level support for a valuable production organization. Shop for and buy one or more yourself. Their current project is a very important answer to the assault on our access to self-defense tools. The false flags, hoaxes, real events and the political press to disarm us is relentless. A tool such as this movie promises to be will be perhaps CRUCIAL. Watch the trailer for the upcoming video. Then consider the appeal for […]

driven … by what?

From Basics of Resistance by Claire Wolff and Kit Perez: “Every person is driven, at the core, by a deep-seated need. An individual may crave acceptance, love, power, money, recognition, honor, or something else. In many cases, people don’t know themselves well enough to know what their primal drive is, or they tend to see their drive as solely positive. They might think their drive is “to serve” or to “stand up for liberty,” but these aren’t primal drives; those desires are driven by underlying primal drives. To reach the core, we need to ask ourselves why, enough times to that everything is stripped down to basic elements.” Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Hmmm, I’m not sure it is […]

snapshot into the swamp

Greg Hunter’s USA Watchdog had a great interview with a co-worker of the dark deep state. We have heard many times that there are honorable people in the NSA, CIA, FBI and other entrenched forces. It is much like the bad wolf and good wolf inside of us all. The one we feed is the one who will win. In this case, we may have to help the good wolf at least a little. I would say sharing this interview would be a modest, but useful step.
