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 […]

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.

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 […]
