anti-gun Montana Senator Jon Tester

I Voted sticker on a SIG P365XL 9mm handgun. IMG Jim Grant Three-term U.S. Senator Jon Tester, D-Montana, is in a fight for his political life. Tester’s Republican challenger, Tim Sheehy, a Navy SEAL combat veteran, has received strong support from GOP leadership and an endorsement from former President Donald J. Trump. Tester’s seat is considered one of the most vulnerable in the Senate. One reason: Montanans love their guns, and Joe Biden – the titular head of Tester’s party – is the most anti-gun president the country has ever seen. As a result, Tester has tried to tap dance around guns and Second Amendment issues. His reelection campaign even released a video that shows him traveling the state in an old pickup […]

Independence Day

Renaming it “4th of July” is not merely laziness. Of course it is the 4th on your calendar, but it is a celebration representing some brave fighters’ Declaration of Independence from a powerful parasitic class of people who had demonstrated a monopoly on violence and oppression. They won a round. The ruling elite had to reorganize. It took a hundred years and another major military war that the freedom fighters lost… not by much, mind you, but they did lose. I just ask you today to spend a little time thinking about independence from oppression, the risks those rebels took and the benefits they won for many subsequent generations. Consider also who is threatened by such thinking and why their […]

How the Police State Acclimates Us to Being Modern-Day Slaves

  Share Tweet Forward Mission Creep: How the Police State Acclimates Us to Being Modern-Day Slaves By John & Nisha Whitehead June 19, 2024 “In a fully developed bureaucracy there is nobody left with whom one can argue, to whom one can present grievances, on whom the pressures of power can be exerted. Bureaucracy is the form of government in which everybody is deprived of political freedom, of the power to act; for the rule by Nobody is not no-rule, and where all are equally powerless, we have a tyranny without a tyrant.” ― Hannah Arendt, On Violence Like the proverbial boiling frogs, the government has been gradually acclimating us to the specter of a police state for years now: Militarized […]

Chinese missile attack on Long Beach recreationalists

A Chinese attack missile guided and controlled by a drone flying over international airspace off California’s Pacific coast dropped internationally-banned cluster munitions over people out enjoying a day at the beach. Four children were killed outright with well over 100 beach-goers wounded. This did not happen as written above. It was a USofA war weapon, under USofA military control that exploded on a Russian recreational beach of Sevastopol on the Black Sea. The fact changes do not make the incident any better in my mind. In the video below two analysts discuss this cluster missile attack and a multitude of implications thereabouts. Five ATACMS were launched from Ukraine at Russia. Four were destroyed mid-air while by appearances, one was […]

unwelcome time off

We (I’ll drag Missy into this for allowing the following) picked up from an estate sale a BMW touring bike I used to own, and grabbed a heckuva deal on a small 400cc “dual sport bike” that was languishing under a tarp next to it. I never got around to restoring the BMW, but found the Suzuki DRZ400S to be a highly desirable bike in exceptionally good shape. The former I sold “as-is” for what I had into it, while “Doctor Z” became a favored steed. With the ice thus broken, I bought an upgraded semi-touring BMW in Denver on occasion of a family reunion nearby and rode it the next day to the top of Pike’s Peak. Not […]

The Great Election Fraud

John Whitehead’s Commentary The Great Election Fraud: Manufactured Choices Make a Mockery of Our Republic   By John & Nisha Whitehead March 05, 2024 “Dictators are not in the business of allowing elections that could remove them from their thrones.”—Gene Sharp, political science professor The U.S. Supreme Court was right to keep President Trump’s name on the ballot. The high court’s decree that the power to remove a federal candidate from the ballot under the Constitution’s “insurrectionist ban” rests with Congress, not the states, underscores the fact that in a representative democracy, the citizenry—not the courts, not the corporations, and not the contrived electoral colleges—should be the ones to elect their representatives. Unfortunately, what is being staged is not an election. It is a mockery […]

We Are One Mistake Away from a Nuclear War

Scott Ritter has the knowledge, the experience and the wisdom to explain where the world sits today … including the crucial HOW and WHY of all that. In this video, he demonstrates this mastery. Our best hope is for more of us to know these things. As you have read and seen on these pages numerous times over the years, ( the beings who control the USofA government Want their world war, along with destruction of man and nature. They are shockingly close all while keeping those who trust them far off the scent of who is causing all this. While those poor trusting souls are a shrinking minority, share this to further reduce the pool trusting this cluster […]

Happy Heemeyer Day

You may not remember the name John Heemeyer, but probably remember KILLDOZER. This famous incident was another example of a city council run amok; petty tyrants out of control and one man’s farewell statement. While not perfectly effective at punishing the perpetrators, he certainly brought some attention to unfettered totalitarianism in this country.

the war on us

They told us with the Georgia Guidestones – quite literally etched it in granite. They spelled it out in detail THREE TIMES with their United Nations Agendas – from select committees representing the rulers of every nation on Earth. Their repeatedly stated goals include a total human population of 500,000,000 – that is a 97% reduction from today. How will they get there? Are you and your loved ones part of the 3% they want to preserve? When their actions seem crazy, you need to recognize that those plans are completely thought through and very much anti-human. Conclude what you will about what they are, but make no mistake about who your enemies are. Bill Gates Caught Telling Inner Circle […]

NATO insists on having nuclear war

In what appears to be incredible stupidity, the globalists war machine has pushed Russia into a corner and keeps pummeling their adversary. The Russian bear has been holding back through decades of abuse, but may be finally pushed too far. I have been watching closely and publishing some on the Ukraine situation for several years now. The famously most overtly corrupt nation in Europe was taken over by the USofA State Department and CIA a decade ago … and as incredible as it may seem, made worse. Now that the “Special Military Operation” is nearing completion of stopping this rogue European pimple from killing Russian people, Arenachrome producing, slave trading, money laundering, and bioweapon manufacturing, NATO wants to explode […]

a veteran’s view of Memorial Day

In 1968 I chose to enlist in the USAF for four years rather than being drafted into the Army for two. In my ignorance I saw only that one way to avoid being handed a rifle and told to kill people I had no quarrel with, or be killed by them. I knew I would struggle to be comfortable living with myself if I survived that conflict. Many people of my age let the government choose for them, and for a lot of those it didn’t work out well. It has been the same for young men in this country for 230 of the 248 years since it was founded. I’m taking the time today to say I’m sorry for […]

neighborhood shooting

I hosted and coached a second handgun refresher this month. We have some really good neighbors … plus some of the other kind and, like all neighborhoods, plenty in-between. A caveat on that is there are not actually a whole lot of people in this rather spread-out neighborhood to begin with. Needless to say, anybody with room for a shooting range in their yard does not live where houses are packed cheek-to-jowl. The photo to the right was from our May 4th shoot. The same folks were here yesterday, so I did not shoot them again (with my camera). They all improved in confidence and competence. I will likely keep doing this to further, and cement the gains. Better […]


The label has been the kiss of death for many of us who loath cheap junk that does not serve intended purposes with a reasonable lifespan. But is that a fair assessment of current Chinese manufacturing today? First off, let us look at the size of China. Rather than a single entity, it could actually have as much variety in the country as many others of the world. I am personally familiar with two significant examples, Optical Coating Labs Inc and Hewlett Packard who over 30 years ago sent high level personnel to transfer technology and production from MADE IN USA to companies in China. I also remember when el Presidente’ Slick Willy Clinton got caught transferring advanced USofA […]

High speed Internet gift – TANSTAAFL

A large cluster of men and equipment are currently spending a few weeks in my neighborhood installing a second, and much farther reaching cable system. Undoubtedly it will be carrying 5G to AND FROM a hundred or so far flung homes in this podunk we occupy. At a couple thousand dollars a day in distribution costs alone, how is this investment of men, equipment operation and hardware cost/benefit justified? Certainly not on fifty or so dollars per month of anticipated subscription fees. So who is paying, and why? Don’t ask. You won’t like the answer. TANSTAAFL – There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch. Said another way, “You buy the product or you are the product.” In […]
