Ravalli County health officer unhappy in a republic

The Ravalli County Public Health Officer is fully resigned to her ignorance of the ineffectiveness of masks against Coronavirus and the well-documented negative health effects on wearers. Fortunately, she has also resigned from a local position of influence in that area of her ineptitude. from the Ravalli Republic Dr. Carol Calderwood gave Ravalli County Commissioners a letter of resignation over the weekend as the county’s public health officer of 13 years, stating she feels she has been placed in “another no-win situation by the locally elected officials’ decision to disobey the Governor’s directives without my input.” The resignation letter followed a July 15 directive from Gov. Steve Bullock requiring indoor mask wearing for every county with more than four […]

The Fact-Free Lockdown Hysteria

An excellent talk by Thomas E. Woods, Jr. The video I share here is from my Brighteon channel. Whenever I find a good or great video that runs counter to the official narrative, I save it on my channel to thwart the Big Tech censors. I have learned from nasty experience that linking or referring to original videos on YouTube can quickly lead to video not found, removed for violating the propaganda we approve of. This presentation most definitely runs counter to the narrative they want us accepting regarding the COVID response by tyrannical governments and fear mongers. At the very beginning of the Tom Woods talk he mentions his web page where he posts his footnotes; the supporting […]

Bullock making up laws after drinking too many Coronas

FIRST OFF: Governors do not get to just make crap up and call them “laws”. They are governors, not dictators, emperors, kings or anything like that. The legislative branch (do you notice the wording here???) makes the laws. The governor, the executive branch agrees to execute them. That is how constitutional republics work, mister BULL-UCK. NEXT UP: Many of us are intelligent enough to discount BS and ferret out credible information. If you are too dang STUPID to do that little mental exercise, you sure as heck should not go displaying your stupidity with whimsical orders from your hallucinogenic mountain top. I very definitely am not wearing a health-compromising, submission-signaling mask to make my breathing harder and unhealthy. You, mister […]

visualize liberty

Imagine what this country would look like if we had begun electing Libertarians 14 years ago. I gave Idaho my best shot, which may not have been all that much in the end, but Idahoans really did have a choice with serious beneficial potential that year. I tripped over this show recently, realizing that was a good debate and presentation of ideas that would have made very real differences. In 2006 I did some traveling around the state as the Libertarian candidate for Idaho governor, a relatively tiny bit of fund-raising, produced some campaign literature, and dressed myself for mass-market appeal. – He cleans up nicely – 😉 When the League of Women Voters announced the upcoming state-wide broadcast of […]

Happy 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. The patriots 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. A long methodical decline in liberty followed from then to now. 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 […]

courage

It is not just the guy who earns a Silver Star risking his life to save the platoon. Sometimes courage is right there in front of us in our everyday lives. When the crowd is WRONG, going along might be easier, but standing apart is the right thing to do.

Will Americans Resist “2nd Wave” Lock Downs?

The article below from Health Impact News includes a full video from The Ron Paul Liberty Report. In that Ron and his co-host Daniel McAdams discuss the Deep State players, the extremely misleading Corona numbers and a lot more. Whether the contact tracing portion excites you or not, the rest of the Liberty Report is deserving a good look. Ironically, humorously, and most appropriately, Faucci is publicly whining that nobody believes him any more. Ron and Daniel touch on that topic too. – Ted – Many New Yorkers Resisting Contact Tracing Some families in Texas defied lock down orders and broke through police tape at a local park to let their children play outdoors. Story. by Brian Shilhavy Editor, Health Impact News […]

Americans Assuming Responsibility For Their Own Protection

As a preface to the following article I want to encourage you to read through the first bit where Jack Kerwick paints a disheartening picture on to the second half describing how the game changes when the trouble-makers take their city games to the country. While people of honor, integrity and courage cringe at the ANTIFA/BLM successes as protected class violence peddlers in the cities, they have had no successes expanding to rural American for millions of very good reasons… US. No sane man looks forward to the confrontations, but no real man shirks the responsibility for appropriate response. – Ted Citizens recognizing that self-defense is non-negotiable. Jack Kerwick from Front Page Magazine If one is paying any attention at […]

You Are Here. Next act will be far worse.

Matt Bracken has studied insurrections, revolutions, 4th-generation-warfare along with the past and future for our country and liberty on Earth. His books are interesting, amusing and most of all, unsettling and accurate depictions of the future we are likely to experience. You can buy them directly from the author, cutting out the ugly middle-man. http://enemiesforeignanddomestic.com/index.html His video here gives an uncomfortable, but realistic view of what we can expect in the next year. We are well advised to trust the accuracy of the evolution we will witness in our war to destroy the last remaining [kind-of] free country.

Homeland Security’s violent armed gangs

From its very beginnings, the newspeak-named Department of Homeland Security set out on a trajectory to eliminate any feelings the little people of our country might have of security. Thirteen years ago during my brief career as a Idaho Department of Corrections CO the phrase “Officer safety is Job One” was being sold to our nation’s “criminal justice enforcers”. Even a bit before that they stopped calling armed patrolmen “peace officers”, substituting “Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs)” in its place. There is a completely different world in the mindset of enforcing the laws our corrupt, self-serving “betters” create rather than working to keep the peace in our communities. The engineers of these changes are, or thought they were closing in on […]

The Slippery Slope to Despotism

Paved with Lockdowns, Raids and Forced Vaccinations   By John W. Whitehead May 20, 2020 “You have no right not to be vaccinated, you have no right not to wear a mask, you have no right to open up your business… And if you refuse to be vaccinated, the state has the power to literally take you to a doctor’s office and plunge a needle into your arm.”—Alan Dershowitz, Harvard law professorYou have no rights.   That’s the lesson the government wants us to learn from this COVID-19 business.   Well, the government is wrong.   For years now, the powers-that-be—those politicians and bureaucrats who think like tyrants and act like petty dictators regardless of what party they belong […]

communities that don’t burn

I share a video describing a community whose members fireproofed it against ANTIFA, other agitators, and those manipulating them for agendas unfavorable to normal people – I consider you and I to be in the latter category, but I could define it more narrowly to be those who do not want to destroy other people’s life, liberty and property. The video is of a post-action report by a townie who along with many, many, many neighbors headed off a frighteningly well orchestrated attack. Without ANY violence from either side. While not stressed, the two really spooky aspects of the assaults described are the tactical organization and the type of people running the operation that is steering the low-level rioters to […]

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 […]

wake-up movies

While not all the movies we watch are so intense, the last three movies we watched from Matrix Entertainment were accurate, enlightening documentaries as serious as the times we are facing. The missus doesn’t always wanna be reality checked, but she sat through these with me. In the case of the last one, Corporate Fascism, she took extensive notes while guiding me through appropriate PAUSE / RESUME as my contribution. On to her notes: Corporate Fascism: American companies are now global companies, with no loyalty to our country, using cheap foreign labor and selling their products to US citizens. 95% Congress of 88% Senate are re-elected even though they only have 21% approval ratings by their constituents who would […]
