I outran my supply train

In war college military leaders are taught that the leading elements must not outrun their supply train. The resultant troops without food and guns without ammo are doomed to failure. I am also reminded of a famous World War I lesson from Corporal, later Sergeant York: I teched off the sixth man first; then the fifth; then the fourth; and so on. That’s the way we shoot wild turkeys at home. You see we don’t want the front ones to know that we’re getting the back ones, and then they keep on coming until we get them all. Of course , I hadn’t time to think of that. I guess I jes naturally did it. I knowed, too, that if […]

.45 vs 20-gauge

There are three standards in the shooting community that are simply not worth challenging within a group chatting behind the firing lines. Chief among them are the irrefutable power of the .45 ACP (“forty five”), the superiority of the 1911 (“nineteen eleven”) among handgun platforms, and the requirement that shotguns must be 12 gauge. Even if not a majority, the acolytes will be adamant, staunch and vociferous in defense of the aforementioned religions. You may not lose, but you will never win those arguments. Fortunately we are here not there. I brook no counter-arguments, in fact I don’t want to police a comments section so there is no possibility of any back talk. Thus ‘my truth’ is THE TRUTH. That’s […]

Rioting and Civil Unrest – Special Report

I have just been introduced to “Bear Nation” and his current “Intel Report”. Excellent. Worth every one of the 28 minutes. Where we are. What YOU should do about it. Heck with wishes, fishes, hopes, plans … GET A MOVE ON. For more information: Bear Independent .com – Ted –

a basic home armory

Inspired by the “10 Guns Worth Keeping” article that I copied and linked below is my more fundamental version of that here. Author Bob Campbell describes his double-handful with make/model specificity that is always welcome to people considering one or another of the recommendations. However, as I read through the article I was confident that my long and short guns were functionally every bit as good as his favorites, perhaps better in my opinion. Of course opinions are like ________ , everybody has one. I am a mid-pack shooter with at least a little experience in most shooting sports, and have at various times been student, competitor, certified and active as a junior rifle coach, range officer and president of […]

China, China, China … what are they doing here?

Mainstream media widely reported Bill Clinton caught selling high-tech secrets to China. Obama followed his example. Hillary’s private server was “hacked” by the Chinese – many say the actual purpose of the server outside government control was to leak sensitive information in exchange for cash payments. Instances of technology transfer have been rolling by us for decades, always seeming like one or two, occasional, unplanned, sneaky… but what if it has been deliberately executed by those who have been in charge of the DC Swamp for that time? To the Globalists, there are no sovereign countries, only pieces to be moved around a board. Transferring wealth, technology, money and power around the planet works for them as long as […]

Will big city violence reach you?

A couple lifetimes ago I was a reader of Mother Earth News, which was if not first, at the very least quite early into what we might now call the prepper or back-to-nature lifestyle. I have been moving in fits and starts that direction ever since. While not quite Ruby Ridge, which didn’t work out all that well for the Weaver family, I am in a relatively good place. But the question rural dwellers should occasionally ponder is my headline here. The California missions were built 25 miles apart which was considered a day’s journey on foot. I learned that on primary school tours to Mission San Francisco Solano in Sonoma, California. I note today online that they are now […]

Is rural Montana THE ANSWER?

On May 26th I published a look into the near future for those who choose the city life: The Scary Truth About Living in Big Cities During the Turbulent Times Ahead. One of the points Jeff Thomas made might have rural Montanans feeling a bit smug as he singles us out for honorable mention: … So, we’ll see panic exits—large numbers of people attempting to leave as a result of some ‘last-straw’ event. It may be similar to the 1930s – the Okies loading up their Model A trucks with their possessions and driving to California. Only this time, it will be Montana, and other rural places where the existing residents are known to be self-reliant… He goes on […]

Simple enough: Just compare vaccinated to unvaccinated

The topic unfortunately resembles deeply-held religious views rather than open scientific inquiry. I am estranged from my daughters because I sent one a copy of VAXXED, the movie that Robert Kennedy Junior produced that simply suggested the vaccine schedule or combinations should be researched for its relationship with vaccine injuries. It was not anti- vaccine, simply bringing up obvious questions deserving of answers. It is difficult to abandon core beliefs. We analyzed available information and made that decision once. We hate to go back to do it again, but moreso we are really loath to admit we were incorrect – ever. Which really is a ridiculous position when you think about it. – Ted Unvaccinated Children are Healthier than Vaccinated […]

good humor men

We just finished watching The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming on a DVD from our local library. It was rather surprisingly heartwarming while being more than a little slapstick. My wife, mom and I truly enjoyed the whole darn movie. That inspired me to look back at one of the stars, Jonathan Winters. Which in turn exposed me to a classic Johnny Carson show with him and Robin Williams in it. Three truly great entertainers. Oh.My.Gosh I laughed with tears. I do suggest you watch this bit.

USMC vs Highway Patrol

A Texas Highway Patrol Officer was conducting speeding enforcement on Hwy 77, just south of Kingsville, TX. The officer was using a handheld radar device to check speeding vehicles approaching the town of Kingsville and was suddenly surprised when the radar gun began reading 300 miles per hour and climbing. The officer attempted to reset the radar gun, but it would not reset and then… It suddenly went dead. Immediately a deafening roar over the Mesquite treetops on Hwy 77 revealed that the radar had in fact locked on to a USMC F/A-18 Hornet which was engaged in a low-flying exercise near it’s Naval Air home base location in Kingsville. Back at the Texas Highway Patrol Headquarters in Corpus […]

Democrat states are 7.7 times as flu fatal as Republican

Run for your lives! Living in New York, New Jersy, Massachusetts, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Illinois, California and several others is extremely risky behavior in the world of Coronavirus. It is apparently quite easy to find a safer place to go. While I abhor the topsy-turvy color code where socialist, communist, RED is blue, I will just say that the states where coronovirus is most lethal are painted blue on lamestream media maps. Take the red pill. Get outta there! Or not. That is called free will… something the blue staters really discourage. But please, please, please, quarantine in place if you want to keep your head in the blue pill world. We on the other side would really appreciate it […]

The following interview is published intact from the linked source. What you can learn is the comparative values of city life VS country life when TSHTF. – Ted – The Scary Truth About Living in Big Cities During the Turbulent Times Ahead By Jeff Thomas International Man May 23, 2020 International Man: Amid the Covid-19 hysteria and global shutdown, the drawbacks of living in a big city have become more apparent. Sure, cities can offer more career opportunities. Still, they are also more expensive, dirtier, have higher levels of crime, crowded, have fragile supply lines, and infrastructure that can get easily overwhelmed. How do you view the value proposition of living in a big city today, given what is […]

contact tracing mass surveillance

Apple and Google are developing contact tracing mass surveillance system based on Bluetooth Low Energy that is being rolled out as forced updates into users phones without their consent. Put into non-technical terms, they are tracking your every move and recording it FOREVER. Assuming you are stupid enough to use their ‘smart devices’. For as long as they leave it up, here is a YouTube video laying it all out.
