Is this Coronavirus catastrophe the tip of the iceberg?

I have recently been picking up bits and pieces from several sources that paint a picture quite a bit more unsettling than the worst-case scenarios we have already been considering. More and more evidence comes in pointing to this COVID-19 as a biological weapon. Maybe from DARPA, maybe created in Chinese labs, but it really doesn’t make a ton of difference to we the little people. Some people with gobs of money and power are keen on killing a bunch of people who do not have money and power and controlling those who survive.  Are you keen on being among the dead or controlled? Yeah. Me neither. It is time to pay close attention. What is currently going on […]

filthy lucre

Money, in the sense of being a product or source of greed. The phrase is Biblical in origin, and the word “lucre” comes from the Latin word lucrum, meaning “profit.” In an amazing twist the normal prepper did not predict, paper currencies have become less desirable than electronic transactions. Hoo-Duh-Thunk??? We were always encouraging each other to keep some ready cash in the cookie jar for the initial phases of TEOTWAWKI where people still trusted their central bank paper, but couldn’t make their regular electronic money transfers function. In today’s Topsy-Turvy world, EVERYBODY KNOWS that THE VIRUS can live on paper currencies for over a week, making it a great vector for spreading DARPA FLU. Your cookie jar has just […]

SOLD OUT

A week ago the media told its slaves to buy toilet paper. They obliged in droves, soaking up supplies at an incredible pace. They quickly moved on to paper diapers, feminine hygiene products and everything disposable made of paper. The rolling panic attack transitioned to bottled water, then transitioned to frozen food and fresh produce. Several weeks ahead of the next rush I see old codgers topping off their gasoline and diesel fuel supplies. They lived through numerous blizzards and other disasters teaching them what to have plenty of in their pantries and what supplies to maximize as the next one approaches. Now, in a sign of brightening awareness, Seattle has few handguns left to buy and their prices have […]

The Health Ranger yanks me off the Coronovirus fence

I have refused to get sucked in to either side of the virus reality debate. Partisans for both sides have long, well-established, thoroughly-warranted reputations for exaggerating, understating and flat-out lying more often than truthing. My guarantee has been that the second- and third-order effects will be dramatic and life-changing for all of us. That is still true, but having read the article and watched two ten-minute videos from Mike Adams has convinced me the very real effects of COVID will itself kill, sicken and weaken huge swaths of the world population. I highly recommend you review his look at the medical and political situation in the article and videos below. He is calm, thoughtful and absent the excesses typical […]

toilet paper

The media focused attention on toilet paper. Their slaves obediently soaked up every last roll coast to coast. It is a NOW WHAT? moment for those who are not ahead of the demand in their household. Invented in the late 1800s, people were pooping and surviving before that… as in FOR-EV-ER before that. Impossible we think. But some and perhaps all of us may have to think again. I will not analyze or itemize here. Chase these links to see some really good ideas that we may have to embrace sooner rather than later. Alternatives to Toilet Paper: What is Reusable Toilet Paper? What are the Alternatives? from Do-It-Yourself-Danielle About Toilet Paper First, the use of paper for toilet […]

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 […]

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, […]

story from Seattle

You likely heard about the discovery of the famed Corona Virus in the northwest’s greatest port. Even lamestream media cannot help but notice that slows deliveries down at the very least. My shirtsleve relative just reported that the first three stores she hit up for toilet paper were sold out – bare shelves in the TP department. Oh sh__! She calls to tell the tale. “Darn preppers”, she says – (or something much like that). Oh heck no, sweetie. The preppers already have July’s toilet paper in their pantry. You just joined the crowd of Almost Too Late To The Party. You probably ought to take this warning to heart and consider what else you might miss when the shelves […]

two-way radios

can be indispensable in emergencies and other times normal communications tools are not working. For my current amateur radio Technician Class students, I just bought 7 of the make/model I feel gives the best cost/benefit for ham radio operators. The TYT MD-UV390 operates on both the ultra-high-frequencies (UHF) of the FCC’s family radio service (FRS) and general mobile radio service (GMRS), it also transmits and receives on the very high frequencies (VHF) commonly used by hams, public and private agencies for regional communications. Their MD-UV380 is the lower cost version of the same radio without the water-proofing. TYT, also known as Tyterra builds well-reviewed radios in relatively affordable price ranges. The transmitters, receivers, speakers, microphones, displays, controls and antennas all […]

black swan

Presumably you too are hearing, reading and learning that regarding China, it is not business as usual. Whether it is natural, man-made, under-reported, over-reported, engineered, hyped-up, or any other combination, the second and third order effects are very real and will very soon be felt HARD! Black Swan Events The term was popularized by Nassim Nicholas Taleb, a finance professor, writer, and former Wall Street trader. Taleb wrote about the idea of a black swan event in a 2007 book prior to the events of the 2008 financial crisis. Taleb argued that because black swan events are impossible to predict due to their extreme rarity yet have catastrophic consequences, it is important for people to always assume a black swan […]

final day of registration for ham class is Friday

This a repeat of my previous announcement. There is one more day of online registration for Darby Adult Ed classes. We stand ONE STUDENT SHORT of having enough to make it happen. I am bringing another amateur radio operator licensing class to Darby, Montana via the Darby Adult Education program in its Spring 2020 schedule. I have not keept track, but think I have personally assisted 40 or 50 people to earning their FCC licenses through my study groups in the Darby library. The snide saying goes, “Those who CAN, DO. Those who cannot, TEACH”. I’m okay wearing that. Good instructors are as rare as good anything else. I did not choose this calling, blessing or curse. It chose me. […]

becoming Boogaloo ready

This is not how good guys dress and actOne of my most popular posts in the couple months has been the December 1st one titled “modern slang definition: The Boogaloo“. You also have shown very strong interest in my updates on the escalation in Virginia of the war against us from our wanna-be tyrannical rulers. Today I combine both of those features into recommending an audio podcast from NC Scout (see his Brushbeater site for more information). He brought his RTO course to my neck of the woods where I was fortunate enough to meet him and learn from him. IF you ever get the chance, take it. Hmmm… well, here you go, you can learn from his podcast below. […]

Ham license class begins February 1st

I am bringing another amateur radio operator licensing class to Darby, Montana via the Darby Adult Education program in its Spring 2020 schedule. I have not keept track, but think I have personally assisted 40 or 50 people to earning their FCC licenses through my study groups in the Darby library. The snide saying goes, “Those who CAN, DO. Those who cannot, TEACH”. I’m okay wearing that. Good instructors are as rare as good anything else. I did not choose this calling, blessing or curse. It chose me. Run with your talents. Every person who has come to all of the class sessions and studied two or more hours between sessions passed the FCC Technician License Exam at the end. […]

information vs intelligence

Once again Samuel Culper lays it out in simple terms. How can we take any intelligent action, with any hope of success, if we do not have a decent picture of what is going on? The video here is just one sample of what he is trying to teach us… and what we MUST learn.
