Take Action: encourage your sheriff to be like this one

Ohio sheriff relays AND responds to warning given to National Sheriff’s Association This sheriff may not be perfect, but he certainly is blazing a good trail worth following for the 3,081 sheriffs in the USofA. All of them were invited to an official FBI briefing in Washington DC. The Butler County, Ohio sheriff was not only impressed with the gravity of the situation, He is taking action. That action is to recruit and involve good citizens of Butler County in building a team that may have a chance of survival against the immediate threats every county in the USofA is currently facing. According to FBI information – as well as what any of us paying attention already knew, the […]

privacy and some invasions thereof

People like me often consider what we may or may not do that facilitates organized capturing of information about us, our activities, and even our thoughts. Nobody wants to think along these lines, but many recognize it would be foolhardy to never consider such. Either you buy the product or you are the product. Faceplant is an example along this line. Their overtly paying customers are the advertisers. Regular participants are the audience, the product. Most likely there are other customers who receive the meta-data on all users. The activities, expressed opinions, interpersonal contacts build portfolios of interest, not necessarily [or likely] for our benefit. “The cloud” is another innocuous benefit offered without overt cost to its users. Considering […]

some things elude quantification

Early this week I shared bits of a personal exercise wherein I attempted to quantify, weigh my time management. As I mentioned there, blogging did not land anywhere near the top. It in fact seems to be near or at the bottom of things I objectively think I should be doing. Yet here I am. I just finished a review of the list I created, made some modifications, but still came up with no justification for doing what I am doing at this moment. My difficulty lies in quantifying community service, building a team with survivable potential, calling out warnings, or some Paul Revere-ish driving mechanism inherent in my psyche. There is another part of me that HATES BULLIES. […]

Darby Adult Ed classes

This semester I am offering three classes through the Darby Adult Education program. Their local reach is great with direct mail flyers going to every mailbox in the Darby zip code. I notice their website is not functioning, so I will do a little boosting of my class offerings here. Community Threat Workshop-Probability/Severity Exercise Instructor will explain the Probability/Severity exercise format, then lead a participatory workshop designed to assess and with potential disruptions to our community. The group with then develop action items for highest level threats. Instructor: Ted Dunlap Day(s): Saturday Dates: September 30 (1 class) Time: 10:00 am to 12:00 am Location: Darby Community Public Library Meeting Room Student Fee: $4.00/$2.00 seniors 60+ Materials/Material Fee: None Two Way […]

The Sound of Freedom – well worth seeing

Today was my first time in a movie theater since watching Avatar in 3-D 14 years ago… and that one was probably my first in another decade or more. Suffice to say, I am not much of a theater-goer. But this one was well worth it. I am glad we went, in every way I had hoped for. The movie itself was exciting, touching and massively relevant. Can I recommend it any higher than I did yesterday? GO I am rather obviously not alone in my recommendation. Check out the numbers shown below that it is earning from a public who is being told by The Establishment either bald-faced lies, nothing at all about it, and/or to stay away. – […]

The Sound of Freedom

Today we make one of our rare treks to Missoula specifically to see a movie … well, that and to lend our support to this anti-hollywood-establishment movie that is breaking attendance records. The Sound of Freedom is on track to break $100,000,000, yes a hundred million dollars in box office receipts tomorrow. Disney studios and others kept this production in a dark closet for five years after it was completed. Angel Studios captured the rights to it, and came up with an unusual crowd-funded distribution system that is currently succeeding phenomenally. Angel Studios selected Independence Day for its public release. Hollyweird opened their potentially giant Raiders of the Lost Ark to head it off that same day. Instead of […]

nuclear war threat down a notch

Saber rattling seems to have toned down a notch. My sampling of non-lamestream sources shows a slight calming in the rhetoric, and indeed the likely D-Day has passed. I think we can move from Orange Alert to Yellow, or at least closer to yellow. My sense of the situation is that most of the world, those thinkers and watchers not under the Ministry of Disinformation thrall knew starting nuclear world war was consistent with the globalist/NATO/CIA/NWO… agendas and not with the Russian rhetoric or actions. Thus we were neither buying their false flag nor accepting their cover story for exploding the Ukrainian nuclear power plant to trigger nuclear exchange. Well, crap!… we will just have to conjure up some […]

Sound of Freedom trailer – saving trafficked children – July 4th release

A courageous movie scheduled for theatrical release July 4th from Angel Studios. This short trailer gives us a good idea of what it is about. Timely and important. Angel studios is trying for a huge opening day audience … two million to match the number of children they estimate are lost into slavery, torture and death every year. Below is the video trailer they produced advertising this film. I am sure we COULD watch it home alone via the Internet, but who knows what great people you might meet if you turn out to a real theater for the July 4th opening day. Not to mention the message of support that would help signal. Visit the Angel Studios website to […]

Bitterroot Bugle under attack

This website is constantly under attack. Perhaps adolescents trying their hand at hacking because some teens like tipping over outhouses, making messes and destroying the productivity of others… but I doubt it. A more likely possibility is someone hoping to hack in so they can make their marketing pitches to my small audience… I doubt that one as well. I am a tiny voice among those who are hacking at the root of the evil that is trying to destroy humanity, nature and life in this otherwise beautiful world. They would love to swat this mosquito … along with other annoyances both small and large. A few weeks ago I received notification of a bigger than normal attack sent […]

Champions of Liberty

Though not widely understood, we are at war. The other side is doing all the attacking, and lining up their weapons of 4th-generation war for the surge on to planned victory; crushing humanity, nature, honor, integrity and all that is beautiful in our world. If our response is as they hope, it will be haphazard, sporadic and ineffective. They win. We lose. If they do their job right, and are lucky, that will be the result regardless of our responses. I am rooting for, and continually work towards making them be unlucky instead. I long ago adopted the electronic engineering schematic symbol to the left as it represents a resistor. At the very least, that is what I am […]

Guerrilla’s Guide To 2-Way Radio

For my heading, I purposefully modified NC Scout’s bestselling book title that I am discussing in this post. The Guerrilla’s Guide To The Baofeng Radio goes far beyond the make/model amateur radio he recommends in it. I and a fellow active licensed radio operator (HAM) took a local class from him a few years ago. It was extremely informative and valuable. I expect this book to have much of what we learned in that class, and quite a bit more packed into it. I have ordered my own copy, so this is a recommendation in advance of being able to review it, based on what I know of the author and of the subject matter. He created and operates Brushbeater […]

my turn as an enemy of the state

I was recently asked why I am unwilling to cross the border into and out of Canada. Here is the real answer. I was a significantly above average Libertarian activist. I ran for governor of Idaho twice, gave the Ada County Sheriff the closest race he had in 20 years, though I had no peace officer experience, and spent several years as Libertarian Party of Idaho state chairman. Needless to say, I was working diligently against THE STATE. When TSA had just (unconstitutionally) taken over transportation security at all the airports, I went through the Boise airport on my way to a convention of state chairs in Houston. I was the only person who got “randomly” plucked out of a […]

reports from the Frontline Doctors

While the majority sold out to their masters, trainers and banksters, there are a surprising number of courageous, bold, stalwart, honorable medical doctors with the same backgrounds, training, financial incentives, choosing to go another way. These are the ones to watch and support. I am linked to them in a way that gets me updates on their activities and others who are fighting the monster. I share those with you today. I apologize for the formatting. If I slogged away at it for too much time, I could clean it up. The links are theirs … and I trust them completely … as “with my life” sort of trust. Certainly with The Truth. – Ted – “This is Beyond Shocking” […]

When the Census comes knocking

In 2010 the US Census Bureau was grossly overstepping its bounds, exceeding the Constitutional mandate by A BUNCH. Being a serious Libertarian advocate, I drew their attention. Today a local friend has found himself in a similar position. Maybe some of you have as well. I published the following in Idaholibery.com on September 21st, 2010. It is what worked for me then and there. Your Mileage May Vary . found my line By Ted Dunlap, on September 21st, 2010 Many of us have wondered where their line in the sand is. At what point do you finally stop retreating? The U.S. Census folks sent us a four-page form in, I think, April. We returned it completed with the information the […]
