Global Skywatch

state of The Virus in Montana

Two weeks ago I shared insight into what the DARPA Virus was and was not in my post: virus not Made In China nor is it natural. The swift and unprecedented reaction by rulers around the globe implied foreknowledge of the unnatural, engineered virulence of this bug. I won’t repeat the evidence here – click that link for the back story. Searching this website for “virus” reveals a significant number of articles on the subject. I have said all along that the reaction by lamestream media and politicians will be a guaranteed horror; the virus itself a maybe. In Ravalli County, Montana the odds of coming in contact with someone who has tested positive for THE VIRUS is one out […]

Seattle – the heart of darkness

Seattle winters are damp, dark and depressing in normal years. March is their peak suicide season. This one is much worse. Seattelites are more depressed, angry, afraid and testy than they usually are in this emotionally dark season. All of their warm-feely-huggy policies are biting back in big ways. They welcomed world travelers into a major port city, cruise line home bases and international airline hub. They also threw out the welcome mat for refugees from anywhere and everywhere, invaders posing as refugees, homeless, drug addicts, pushers, gangs and welfare queens. Combining cause and effect, their Pacific Paradise is second only to New York as ground zero for the COVID-19 virus. In response the jails, prisons, courts and police […]

How Globalization and the Mainstream Media have Facilitated the COVID-19 Pandemic

The message below came to me as an e-mail from Matrix Productions. I simply reformatted it for my blog. You can watch the trailer for Mainstream by clicking on the link built into the headline. I did, and based on that plus my supreme satisfaction with the movies from that studio that I already own, I added the two featured here to my collection. Well, I ordered them to be in my hands very soon. While I don’t feel so financially flush that I could contribute significantly to their movie production expenses, the least I could do is purchase the product as a way of support and thanking them for the work they do. I encourage you to click the […]

managed economies – the dream turns to trash

In the late 1980s, Soviets were allowed to keep the wealth they created by raising vegetables on their garden plots. Although these plots composed only about 2% of the agricultural lands in the Soviet Union, they produced 25% of the food! When Soviets kept the wealth they created, they produced almost 16 times more than when it was taken from them, at gunpoint if necessary! Mary Ruwart   “Just as there is a very short distance between the U.S. and Cuba, there is a very short distance between a democracy and dictatorship where the government gets to decide what to do, how to think, and how to live. And sometimes your freedom is not taken away at gunpoint, but […]

viral success

Two weeks ago I published the health ranger yanks me off the coronovirus fence, sharing an article, a couple videos as well as ten predictions by Mike Adams. Since the outset, I have exclaimed that the truth will be elusive, but the effects of Big Brother’s response will be massively disruptive. Some say much worse than anything the disease itself could do. A couple days later in A most convenient virus, I describe some of the handy effects of the responses to the virus – handy from the perspective of those who would rule the world, that is. Both of those posts withstood the test of time – in fact, search this site for the word “virus” and every article […]

10 Amazon Warehouses Hit With COVID-19

We are avoiding Meat-Space in droves. Little towns, big towns, grand malls … they are all hollow echoes of their ever-so-recent past. THE MASSES have discovered online ordering. We don’t touch keypads a hundred others have touched. We do not handle paper money a hundred others have recently handled. We aren’t gripping shopping cart handles a hundred others have grabbed in the last two days. ONLINE ORDERING HAS EXPLODED. Big box stores were right on top of it. Minor chains were hot on their tails. Mom-N-Pop were right behind them, sometimes in front. Darn near everybody whose income HAD depended on floor traffic have come up with ways to deliver their services (and get paid for them) while minimizing virus […]

on the bright side

An interesting effect of the social distancing fad is the reaction in what they like to call “The criminal justice system”. Prison and jail populations are being reduced coast to coast by various means. Courts are on holiday. Enforcers are advised to skip interacting with the public over burned out taillights and silly harassments they used to delight in. Is this the Libertarian dream … the end of victimless crimes? Victimless Crime Constitutes 86% of the Federal Prison Population Did cannabis prohibition just end? Is Constitutional Carry now the law of the land? Locally, Ravalli County has nearly eliminated courts, arrests and incarceration. Benjamin Franklin stated it as, “it is better [one hundred] guilty Persons should escape than that […]

California humor

Okay, this won’t be understood by Californians, but you gotta admit they are fun to watch … as long as you don’t get emotionally attached or try to explain things to them. The San Francisco politicians have rolled out their response to being one of the Coronavirus centers of the western world. The genius of our university system’s finest can be admired for all to see: Beginning midnight on Tuesday, residents may only leave their homes to shop for food/supplies, to access health care or to provide aide to family and friends in need. Resident may go outside for exercise but must stay 6 feet away from people they don’t live with. The homeless are exempt from the order. […]

2nd order effects kicking in

The media demonizes them as hoarders. Shoppers following in their wakes curse them as preppers. They are, however, neither of those. Preppers know that an event disrupting the intricate just-in-time delivery system of our society is inevitable. Analyzing what is really important for family survival, perhaps comfort, and insuring a reasonable supply is not only a way of life for them, it is subject matter they study and regularly review. Conservative planning centers around being ahead of the rush WHEN it happens, not IF it happens. The current crop of Costco Raiders are rather the great middle of our society. Those who have some ability to spend cash or credit when triggered by the media onslaught. Those a day […]

playing in the mud

Sean called his Darby Adult Ed class “Mud Made Mankind”. He gave us a wonderful introduction to working with clay, glazes, potter’s wheel and much more. We found ways to mold clay that didn’t work. We found ways that did. He was a wonderful teacher, cheerleader and assistant. I entered the class with a specific project in mind. I didn’t care if was the only creation I made, but I was focused on getting this one done. As you can see here, we pulled it off… and I do mean WE … Sean was a big help in many ways. I have a carnivorous pitcher plant that seems to like its home, rewarding me with a fly-free laundry room […]

I have enough guns

That phrase is heresy for most Montanans. Its profane counterpart, “I have enough ammo” is just as bad. It is a good way to get shunned from polite company, trussed-up and shipped to San Francisco from others. But really, how many guns are you likely to deploy and how many rounds of ammo can you expend fighting off the zombie apocalypse before one of them takes you out? More importantly, if/when TS actually hits TF, or TEOTWAWKI if you will, gun fights are likely to take out a lot fewer than disease, suicide, starvation and other less dramatic breakdowns of the easy living we currently enjoy. If you are developing accommodations for your castle defense team, a couple month’s […]

non-handshake greetings

My wife sent me a video link on fist-bumping as a major improvement in social hygiene. You can see in the clip to the right that handshaking is a significant disease spreading vector. I confess to having hand-shaking deeply embedded into my cultural norms. My circle of acquaintances are probably similarly programmed. I’m not sure this can work. Of course the lamestream media onslaught of virus fear-mongering should make this an opportune moment in our history for a cultural shift in greeting and deal-making rituals. I suppose that is assuming we don’t want to regularly challenge our immune systems. I share with you here a photographic set of cultural alternatives to the western handshake. I think a hands at […]

getting lost in the woods

I share this article, following with my comments. California couple who vanished for nearly a week found alive from commanderzero.com You know, stereotypes are not always accurate…but…they save time and the exist for a reason. Part of me wants to say that this is a case of ‘academics’ who know their way around a college campus but have a total disconnect from the real world and it’s real world consequences. INVERNESS, Calif. (AP) — An academic couple who got lost during a Valentine’s Day hike in the woods of Northern California was found Saturday by rescuers who spent almost a week looking for them and had given up hopes of finding them alive. Carol Kiparsky, 77, and Ian Irwin, 72, […]

happiness

A comment on Gab about the unaffordability of happiness today inspired my reply below it. The big four expenses that contribute the most to personal happiness are housing, education, healthcare, and transportation. If you can afford those, family formation becomes more than a pipe dream. All four have gotten more unaffordable since the 1970s. This is what’s driving the working and middle class revolts against the system, despite stock market gains and econometric assurances that everything’s peachy keen once adjusted for inflation. As a nation, we’ve traded big ticket affordability for cheap gadgets. We will learn soon enough that the trade-off came with a huge hidden cost. —————- Housing: bigger is not necessarily better, fixers are good investments, renting often […]
