defense of self-defense tools

I do not like the word “meme”. Okay, I’m a crusty old man who does not rapidly adopt new words when there are so many great ones in our language that are falling into disuse. But there is no better word to describe the pictures, posters, images and messages I have assembled here. We are just a couple days from the Richmond, Virginia showdown. I am dreading this one. I think the OOOH-RAH patriots are walking into a trap. Any provocateur can dress as one of them and initiate insane violence that the puppet media would LOVE to blame on self-defense defenders. Here I share a collection of memes that you can copy and post wherever you find those who […]

January 20, 2020 predictive video analysis

I have been reading and writing about the coming Buffalo Jump in Richmond, Virginia. It is shaping up to be made to order for people who would eliminate the independent part of our culture in order that we can all be under the thumb of the One World Government. Here is the post in its native turf. These guys published the show on BitChute. I made a copy to protect against their video suffering a takedown. See their show here: https://www.bitchute.com/video/V68nrFysqvha/ In case that doesn’t work, I have a copy below.

modern gun fights – three examples

January 20, 2020 could turn out to be a modern gun battle. We would be wise to look at how they work. The first one I want discuss is the Aurora movie theater shootings. A kid stoned out on prescription psychotropics was manipulated into gearing up with a gun and a gas mask, opening the emergency exit to let in a “partner” who shot up the place, then out of his fog he got a sense that this was not right and shot the shooter. The shooter left his gas mask behind, left a trail of blood to his getaway car, then disappeared FOREVER. That man had his exit planned before his entrance. He had cover in high places. […]

good news / bad news on Democrats

The main themes in Democratic Party politics today is shrill socialism, hysteria, curl up in a corner and cry, or come out shooting in every direction at anything that moves. Rational thought has been jettisoned from their ship. The moneyed instigators inspire thoughtless youths to dress as fascist thugs and violently attack conservatives for being fascist. The creeps are throwing gasoline, nitro-glycerin, incendiaries and any other destructive devices they can into our cultural fabric. Will they get their “civil war”? Anybody’s guess. The Democrats have become the main tools. Mainstream is fed up. Democrats are cheering Trump at his rallies. Blacks are abandoning the Democratic Party. Rallies for Trump fill stadiums. Rallies for Democratic candidates cannot even fill conference […]

“wildfires” and high speed rail paths “coincidentally” align

The pictures are blatantly clear. Santa Rosa, Paradise, Camp Fire, Australia. The Agenda 21 engineers have discovered FIRE. Rail corridors that would otherwise be impossible to purchase are coincidentally unoccupied and dirt cheap after record-setting fires conveniently follow their maps. Enlightened planners create community separators on their maps without apparent regard to the thousands of very nice, expensive homes occupying the same spaces, often for several generations. Suddenly *POOF* the separators are dirt and magical shrubs and trees that didn’t burn while adjacent houses turned to ash. According to current news reports they are supposedly wrestling with the decision to allow rebuilding or not. That is laughable… gee, I wonder what they will decide? Once in a while their […]

Explaining LR-130, and why it’s important to Montana

Our state has a great champion of our gun rights in Gary Marbut. He continues to work harder and smarter to keep the pressure on Montana government to respect our natural rights to self-defense and all that means. In this e-mail he asks supporters to take note and take action. He also asks us to share the information. So here it is. – Ted –       Important update on pending November gun rights ballot issue from Gary Marbut of Montana Shooting Sports Assoc., LR-130, which will need the supporting votes of all who care about our 2nd Amendment rights in Montana.   From: Gary Marbut <[email protected]>   Subject: Explaining LR-130, and why it’s important to Montana   […]

comms plans for Darby Dog Derby

The 2020 Bitterroot dogsled race weekend is coming up. I have the two-way-radio support plan mapped out, radios programmed, testing complete, batteries all charged up … I think we are as ready as we can get. For more details about the weekend, the participants and the races, go to The Bitterroot Mushers website. Each year we learn more, adding refinements to patch holes as we find them. Ideally we have 8 checkpoints with a checkpoint worker and a radio operator at each. That’s a bit dreamy as the last couple years we are lucky to have one person serving both roles at each. Bitterroot Emergency Amateur Radio Services (BEARS), the comms team, recently changed affiliation to Corvallis American Legion […]

speaking of the representative from California

Nancy Pelosi is a People’s Republic of California masterpiece. She has spent 28 years living in the DC Swamp … really expensive digs and cost of living. Meanwhile moving herself into some of the most expensive housing in her very expensive district as a second home. During nearly 3 centuries ‘on the job’ Nancy somehow turned a $193,000 annual salary into a $200 million net worth… brilliant, shrewd investments, fershur. We have the best politicians money can buy. I have become a bit of a meme collector. The posters with pertinent sayings on them explain a lot much faster than long-winded diatribes. […]

Virginia – It’s A TRAP!

Those who see a multitude of downsides with almost no up-side chance are doing our best to warn off the patriots who are blinded by the HOO-RAH chanting that surrounds them. Virginians have the momentum. The county-by-county victories ARE GREAT. Do not walk into their Pig Trap, run off their Buffalo Jump or whatever other metaphor clues you in to what January 20th in Richmond is likely to be. I am sharing links, text, comments here from sharp people who helped me step back from the HOO-RAH din to see the looming disaster. Be the Indian not the Buffalo- Bracken RICHMOND: THE MOTHER OF ALL BUFFALO JUMPS   I share the complete text below, complete with test of your “Pig […]

California genius has no bottom

Reason 12,496 why I left the town of my youth.  (WAG: I really lost count 20 years ago) – Ted – Sonoma County Plan Would Evict Renters To Buy Housing For Homeless By Da Lin January 10, 2020 at 6:47 pm Filed Under:Homeless, Homeless Encampment, Housing crisis, Joe Rodota Trail, Santa Rosa, solution, Sonoma County     SANTA ROSA (KPIX) — A controversial plan to solve the homeless crisis has people fired up in Sonoma County where officials plan to spend millions of dollars to buy three properties that would be used to house the homeless. All three properties have one thing in common. They’re big and have multiple units, but many of those units are currently occupied by tenants. […]

California legislators go Full Stupid

Gasoline powered garden tools are their new enemies. Ya’know like the lawn mowers, chainsaws and string trimmers that were major breakthroughs initially, and staples of homeowners ever since. Nevermind the thousands of Mom’n’Pop businesses servicing owners of these tools. We, the brilliant, have determined that you peasants need to mow your lawn on your knees with scissors. Well, at least on your knees. Of course the legislators have never operated any of those tools, in fact having ZERO personal tool knowledge at all … the hired help has always done that tedious, mundane stuff. Sadly, the geniuses in Sacramento have no clue regarding what tools their hired help use. They deserve what they get. But the unrepresented rural Californians deserve […]

Dumbing US Down

Is the title of John Taylor Gatto‘s 2005 book exposing what his industry was doing TO our children. Several times New York City and NY state Teacher Of The Year, he knew exactly what he was talking about. The US Department of Education has a Newspeak name, as most agencies do. It was created to eliminate constructive education nation-wide. It has apparently been a wild success at that. Homeschool seems to be the only escape as they are crushing any private school that shows signs of success and educational merit. – Ted – K-12: The War against Children By Bruce Deitrick Price American public schools, by all the usual metrics, have steadily declined for a century.  Was this inevitable?  Or is […]

final day of registration for ham class is Friday

This a repeat of my previous announcement. There is one more day of online registration for Darby Adult Ed classes. We stand ONE STUDENT SHORT of having enough to make it happen. I am bringing another amateur radio operator licensing class to Darby, Montana via the Darby Adult Education program in its Spring 2020 schedule. I have not keept track, but think I have personally assisted 40 or 50 people to earning their FCC licenses through my study groups in the Darby library. The snide saying goes, “Those who CAN, DO. Those who cannot, TEACH”. I’m okay wearing that. Good instructors are as rare as good anything else. I did not choose this calling, blessing or curse. It chose me. […]

best case Virginia scenario is bad

The potential outcomes from demonstrations on January 20th go from bad through worse all the way into awful. Talented author, genuine good guy and excellent strategist developed a good hard look at what could go wrong and right in Richmond. He moved me from fist-pumping for the patriots to joining him to say, Patriots, Stay Away! Save your activism and ammo for times and places where you can win. More importantly, do not give them the chance to derail our momentum. I link to Matt Bracken, his excellent books and the source of the post I pasted below. – Ted –   RICHMOND: THE MOTHER OF ALL BUFFALO JUMPS Posted by Matt Bracken | Jan 7, 2020 | Matt Bracken, […]
