good Kiwis vs bad Kiwis

Whether it was a staged event rather than real has been debated on the Internet, but the Christchirch shooting event was all the excuse ruling elites needed to pass draconian gun bans and an incredibly expensive program they call “gun buyback”. As one commentator notes, the government never owned the affected guns, thus cannot buy them back. Worse than the semantic failure is the program’s realities. The politicians rushed their anti-gun legislation through in a few days – thereby avoiding organized resistance. It was unsurprisingly already written up when the ‘trigger event’ took place, though the legislators don’t mention that part. Millions of guns costing a thousand dollars each were instantly disallowed with gun owners offered $350 for each during […]

census cometh

This morning I found tracks from the US Census Bureau checking me out online. Here we go again. That Big Brother has my whole life on file already won’t stop them from DEMANDING I answer four pages of questions for the 2020 census. They remain ever hopeful of finding some juicy tidbit heretofore overlooked. I had to go back to IdahoLiberty.com to find the saga of my interactions with them last round. It might be coming up again for me … or thee. Prepare thyself. Below is a link to my original post, an exact copy of it, and at the bottom, a link to my follow up post. found my line By Ted, on September 21st, 2010 Many of […]

cannabis collection

I have bookmarked several articles related to cannabis and the shady legal misdeeds surrounding and nearby the topic. The politicians renamed it “marijuana” to enable criminalization of a product in widespread medicinal use… back in the bad-old-days when major media was the only media. The pressure is on as two-thirds of us want the bad laws repealed. You and I need to keep the pressure on. Step 1 is sharing information and knowledge. I do it here. You should be doing it somewhere – even just sharing links to this page is better than quietly waiting for common sense to infect the swamp. 5 Fascinating Facts About CBD You Need to Know CBD, a naturally-occurring compound, possesses tremendous therapeutic value […]

Dems Debut National Ammo Control Bill in Congress

03/14/19 6:00 AM | by Chris Eger A plan backed by anti-gun groups and Democrats on Capitol Hill would require background checks or gun permits for most ammo transfers. (Photo: Chris Eger/Guns.com) An effort to close what bill’s supporters term the “ammo loophole” would make mandatory background checks the nationwide norm for ammunition sales. Under measures proposed in the House by Florida’s Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the Senate by Connecticut’s Richard Blumenthal, would-be ammunition buyers would have to be first vetted by the FBI’s National Instant Background Check System. The lawmakers, allied with national gun control groups, say the move to add controls to bullet sales would help save lives. Wasserman Schultz’s bill, entered Wednesday as HR 1705 with […]

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. […]

New Zealand fakeout

How do you know a staged event from a real one? When the perpetrators pull out all the stops to hide evidence of the event from the public. No further proof is needed, but tons of it is out there. Over the next couple of weeks the evidence from genuine investigative reporters and analysts will come out. Use your head. Much of what you hear, see and read will be fake. Trust is earned. So is distrust. A teenager faces 14 years in prison for re-posting the New Zealand mosque shooting The teen faces two charges: one of sharing the live-stream and a second for posting a photograph of one of the mosque’s attacked with the message “target acquired” along […]

you buy the product, or are the product

Modern robber barrons have something in common besides hyper wealth and power. I will highlight the key ingredient in the definition below. The Rise of Robber Barons As the United States transformed into an industrial society with little regulation of business, it was possible for small numbers of men to dominate crucial industries. Conditions which favored vast accumulations of wealth included the extensive natural resources being discovered as the country expanded, the enormous potential work force of immigrants arriving in the country, and the general acceleration of business in the years following the Civil War. Railroad builders in particular, needing political influence to build their railways, became adept at influencing politicians through the use of lobbyists, or in some cases, […]

background check nonsense

My ‘pen pal’ from Ammo.com sent me the message below on the background check requirement to purchase firearms. I figure it is good enough to share.  We kind-of have an idea of the background checks that “protect us” from bad guys getting guns.  Well, at least that is how the congresscritters sold the package.  It is instead just one of the continuing assaults on the natural human right to self defense. The images included herein are mine. Don’t blame Ammo.com. They struck me as appropriate. Ted ———————-     Here I am again… In your inbox on this cold yet sunny afternoon. At least that’s the weather here in the good ole Show-Me State. I breach your inbox today to […]

Battlefield America

The war on the American people John W. Whitehead With a foreword by Ron Paul. I was inspired by his Rutherford Institute, regular e-mails from them and the great insights therein to purchase and read John Whitehead’s Battlefield America. Cover to cover, I was impressed with his accurate depiction of where we are culturally and politically. I made myself a note that he really hit home with the midsection at page 195. The rest is just as good. Much of it is simply a great explanation of where we are today, but it puts the whole of the problem in a coherent, well thought out big picture, flush with details. I highly recommend it. Extract from page 195 – any […]

you are here

Below is a wonderful video. Nine minutes that everyone ought to watch. Please watch it – even the first few minutes on my recommendation, the rest because you find the message powerful and compelling. Then share it widely. Regular visitors to my website likely know I dislike the popular but meaningless, or worse, Newspeak uses of the words liberal, left/right, red/blue as descriptors for political factions. The main divides are statists vs libertarians, and among the former, globalists, the one-world-government faction vs nationalists who at least leave earthlings some choices about which overly-powerful set of rulers we might live under. You may also know I am as loyal to the Republican Party as I am to the Democrats, which […]

Suspending the Constitution:

In America Today, the Government Does Whatever It Wants By John W. Whitehead September 17, 2018 “That was when they suspended the Constitution. They said it would be temporary. There wasn’t even any rioting in the streets. People stayed home at night, watching television, looking for some direction. There wasn’t even an enemy you could put your finger on.”—Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale We can pretend that the Constitution, which was written to hold the government accountable, is still our governing document.   The reality we must come to terms with, however, is that in the America we live in today, the government does whatever it wants, freedom be damned.   “We the people” have been terrorized, traumatized, and tricked into […]
