They Are Almost In Control Now

The fraud and theft of this election is obvious to anyone honest enough to look.
Biden didn't campaign. He hid out in his basement because he knew the fix was in for him, no matter what.

President Trump stands in the way of the Globalist agenda and (T)hey HAD to get rid of him. They tried the Russian hoax, They tried impeachment, riots, looting, lawlessness and then They either introduced or took advantage of a virus, slightly more virulent and contagious than the flu, to make the mindless believe that they were in danger.

None of these things worked. President Trump was able to withstand the unceasing investigations, impeachment fraud and didn't fall for Their trap in re the riots and looting. President Trump just stuck to the Constitution and the law and left Them with no more ammo in Their pouch.

So, They arranged for a demented old man and a woman They could control to run against President Trump in this election, knowing that They would be using every possible method to cheat; would have the unwavering support of Their media and the support of Their social media as well.

If never mattered to Them who ran against President Trump. They expected us to vote him in with a record-breaking landslide. They weren't surprised at the vote count on November 3rd. They were ready.

All They had to do was wait until They could see the necessary states to steal. Then, They stopped the vote counting in those states and executed Their plan. With rigged machines, ballot harvesting, fake mail-in ballots and all the other ways They cheated, They made it look enough like Biden had won that Their media could hype it. Their mindless drones in our population, who believe whatever They report, could say that President Trump had been defeated. "See? Look at the votes!"

But, once again, President Trump didn't follow the normal line. He didn't just accept that They had finally gotten what They wanted. He continues to fight.

Will President Trump and the true citizens of the United States ultimately triumph? I'm not smart enough to know. It's possible but the powers against us are nearly unbeatable.

Super money...even more that Trump has. All of the mainstream and most of the follow along media. Social media. All the Democrats in any level of government. All those whose livelihood hinges on the continued gravy train of our corrupt government and all those people who either can't or won't think for themselves and make any effort to see the truth. Sadly, nearly half of our citizenry.

Who does President Trump have? A majority of the U.S. voters, likely a majority of those who don't vote but can still think for themselves and a small team of dedicated friends and supporters.

It's looking bad. They are able to control us like never before. They continue to hype the virus, getting us to wear masks, avoid our families and friends, stay at home and shop Their big stores online, slowly choking the local businesses that are the lifeblood of a free population.

If They can get Biden in as President, then They will have control of the world. The United States is the last bastion of true freedom in the world and we stand on the brink of losing it all. Once Biden is Their figurehead, They can either keep him or admit to his dementia and put Harris is his place. Either way, Their agenda will rapidly be implemented.

They won't have to conquer us with force of arms. Already, a large part of our population is under Their control. Just look around for The Mark.

The masks are The Mark, showing Them who is compliant and who is not. Soon, it will be the vaccine. "Show us your immunization papers" is how the Walmart door guard will be greeting us. Only the huge corporate stores will be left and if you aren't wearing your mask, have your "papers" or your RFID chip, you won't be allowed to shop.

You won't be hire-able either. You can't work at Walmart, Amazon, Costco or any other remaining job market without your continued compliance.

What will those of us who won't go along do? Barter? What will be our medium of exchange? Gold? U.S. Currency? Beer, tobacco, whiskey, food...toilet paper?

When I first began to formulate this post, I thought to myself: "This is too far-fetched. I'm just being weird". The more I wrote, the more often I read this over to myself, the more I realized that, not only am I right, but I'm probably under stating it.

I'm able to see what is going on and articulate it in writing. I'm not smart enough to see how we can counter it. At present, my only hope and prayer is that President Trump and his team are able to, once again, overcome the coup and defeat Them at Their game.

If not, I believe we are doomed as a free nation.

I Remember

I remember:

I remember throwing a rifle over my shoulder and taking off on my bicycle, riding through town on my way out to go camping, fishing, hunting or just hiking around outside of West Yellowstone.

If I needed anything, some lunch ingredients, matches, extra shells for whatever gun I was carrying or whatever, I could just stop in at the store and get it. 12 years old or so. No panic. No fear around me. No one called the cops or even commented about it as it was not remarkable.

I remember going camping near Belgrade, Montana with friends. Shooting gophers with our pistols, setting up camp next to the Gallatin River, just wherever we wanted and spending two or three days just fishing, swimming, hiking, shooting and camping. No trespass issues. No police called to check us out.

Going hunting before school hours and getting back, a little late, so hurried to class, still wearing my knife and extra ammo. Got in trouble for being late.

Hiking, camping, fishing, bicycling all over the West Yellowstone area with the rule that I had to be home by dinner. Sometimes miles from town, just a dog, a rifle and myself, exploring the outdoors as only a kid can.

In later years, after I had a pickup for my travels, I ranged even further for longer. If I was tired, I'd stop and sleep. If I wanted to make a meal, whether far out in the mountains or in a pullout next to the highway, I'd make a fire and cook. "No overnight camping" was not a sign we saw. Paying for a campsite? What?!

Leave my rifle in the rack in the back window of my pickup, parked at the school.

Ride a bicycle without a helmet. Ride in the back of a pickup.

No DUI roadblocks. No security check roadblocks. Cops wouldn't even think of asking to search my car!

load my guitar, soundgear and pool cues in the car and take off down the road, living by playing music and pool in crowded bars and pool halls.

Family gatherings, funerals, weddings and events without government dictated crowd size and event locations.

Rodeos, county fairs, local school sports, local school events, such as graduations, plays, concerts and so on.

Children going to school, having friends, parties and events together. Actually attending classes with personal contact. How's a kid supposed to get a crush on his teacher if she's just a computer screen?

National sports heroes we could respect. National sports weren't political events.

Hugs, handshakes and visiting our seniors in their nursing homes.

Want to put up a fence or garden on your own property? OK. How about parking your boat or trailer in front of your house? Sure. No problem.

What else are our children losing? What kind of country will they grow into? One where we don't see smiles anymore? Hard to recognize or hear our neighbors through their face diaper but if you don't wear yours, they will rat you out and you'll be in trouble for breathing free air?

I'm sad to see the things we've lost and reflect on the things we're likely to lose.

But, I'm sure we'll be much more secure and healthy in the New World Order and if you never had freedom, you won't miss it. I'm old now and will likely be gone soon so my memories are just that...old guy memories of times gone by. But...I Remember.

"Make It Yourself" Cooking Background.

This story really does have a point, if you bear with me.  I'm laying the groundwork for some articles on how to cook things for yourself.  I walk through the bakery aisles in grocery stores and see pies, cakes, doughnuts and cookies.  They all look good but I'm really not tempted to buy them.  Mass-produced pastries just aren't as good as the ones I make myself!  The same with dinner.  Why would I buy a pre-cooked and frozen lasagna when I can make one myself, at home, that will be better, in all ways, than the one from the store?  And, I don't even want to get into frozen waffles, pancakes and "breakfast sandwiches".  Yuck!

I started working in cafes, in West Yellowstone, when I was 10 years old.  I was hired as a dishwasher at the Silver Horseshoe Café.  I'd never done anything but deliver papers before that and had never washed dishes in a restaurant before and restaurants in West Yellowstone are incredibly busy in the summer time.  It's "slam! bang!" busy from the time the doors open until the place closes and there's no time for screwing around.

The cook tried to get me to understand how to get dishes done very quickly and I kind of caught on but...not.  I remember him bringing the stove top grates to me and telling me to get them "clean and shiny like new".  Well, they were iron grates with years of crust on them and I spent a huge amount of time trying to actually get all that off.  He came over and saw me still scrubbing the, at this point already clean, grates and took them back and put them back on the stove.

I didn't really learn the whole dishwasher job very well there as I didn't last long.  I mean, come on!  It was summer in West Yellowstone and I was ten years old!  There were fish to catch and camping and swimming to do so I kind of called in sick a lot.  In todays world, I don't think we can even hire kids that young.

As I got older, I learned to do not only the dishwasher job but everything there is to do in a restaurant, including waiting tables, cooking, being "host", bussing tables and washing dishes.  In most of the places I worked back then, the dishwasher was kind of the Prep Cook's assistant so I boiled, peeled, hashed, cut and mashed potatoes, made soups and chili, baked rolls and other things like that.  Dishwashers also were the cleaners of everything, bathrooms, floors, freezers and refrigerators...pretty much any greasy, dirty cleanup that needed done, the dishwasher was the go-to guy.

My Mom was one of the most sought after restaurant cooks in West Yellowstone back then and we wound up working places and shifts together so I learned how to work the grill from her as well as from other accomplished café cooks.  By the time I was 16 I was able to handle any job in the place and often did.  If someone didn't show up, I was the first one they'd call to fill in so I might be dishwasher one day, cook the next and waiting tables another time.

When I enlisted in the Air Force, as a policeman, I told myself I would NEVER work in a café again!  Never say never, folks.  It's too big a word.  I'm right back to being the "floater" again.  Now, I'm not doing it full time but it's not uncommon for my phone to ring and a waitress hollers "Help!" so I wander over to the Mint and fill in wherever they need me.  I've helped out at Parade Rest Ranch in West Yellowstone a few times over the years too.

My point here (Yes, I'm finally getting to it) is that I have a pretty extensive background in the restaurant business and in cooking.  So, a few years ago, I heard that one of our local outfitters needed a cook for his hunting camp.  I'd never done that kind of thing before but figured I could learn by doing.

I quickly learned that the style of cooking at a place like that is very different from cooking "on the line" in a café.  In a café, you are basically heating up and assembling meal components as quickly as possible.  Everything has been portioned out and you just cook it up and throw it together.  At hunting camp, I was making "family style" meals; one big meal for everybody.  How much do you make and how do you make that much all at once?  More like the Prep Cook in a restaurant than the grill cook.

I did figure it out, though, and found that it was a very rewarding and enjoyable style of cooking.  I got a lot more personal satisfaction out of making good, presentable and enjoyable meals for a group as opposed to a lot of meals, fast.  At hunting camp I made my own bread and rolls and provided breakfast, lunch and dinner with a variety of entrees, sides and deserts for as few as 3 people and as many as 14. Rifle season in Montana lasts until Thanksgiving so I actually prepared and served a traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner, with all the fixins, for the first time in my life.  I kind of pretended I was an old-time chuckwagon cook and treated the job in that way.  It worked.

A year or so later, Parade Rest needed a dinner cook for the last month of the season and I filled in there; once again cooking family style, this time for as many as 60 people a couple of times (with lots of help).  I really enjoyed it and decided this was something I could do well and still have fun.

Last fall, I cooked for a roundup crew in Nevada for a month.  As few as three and as many as eight people for whom I provided breakfast and dinner every day for almost a month.  Once again, I made almost everything from scratch, including bread, dinner rolls, cinnamon rolls, cookies and pies as well as breakfast and dinner entree's and sides.  It was enjoyable and satisfying and I feel like I might have finally found my nitch, after only over 50 years!

So, my plan here is to provide a few insights I've gained in 40+ years of food service, with an emphasis on doing for yourself what the grocery stores are trying to do for you.  Make your own doughnuts, cookies and pies.  Cinnamon rolls seemed really hard to me the first time I made some.  Pie crusts can be frustrating but you can make your own that will be as good or even better than one from the store and you have the satisfaction of having made it yourself.

Remember, I cooked my first traditional Thanksgiving dinner in a tent in the mountains of Montana.  You can certainly manage to make dinner in your kitchen at home!

Check back here once in a while for a continuation of this theme.  I'll give you an idea of the tools I like and the work-arounds and shortcuts I've learned over the years.  Maybe we can have some fun here together.

"Make It Yourself" tools

First, let's look at some of the things you need.  Most of these things can be found in second hand stores if you look for them.  Always be alert for cooking utensils when you are browsing the second hand stores.  

Get a pastry cutter.  I don't like the ones with heavy wire, much like a wire whisk.  I want the pastry cutter with rigid metal blades.

Wire whisk.  Several of these of different sizes.  I don't like the flat ones or the spiral ones.  Just plain wire whisks will do the best job.

Wooden spoons. At least one long handled one you can use for continuous stirring over a hot pot. By this I mean, have a couple of 10” wooden spoons for normal mixing but find one with a longer handle for the times you are standing over the pot, stirring continuously while the steam billows up and cooks YOU. A long handled spoon is really nice at this point in your life.
Spatulas:  I, first, want a thin metal one that will easily slide under my eggs or pancakes.  But, I also want a rigid plastic one that I will be using for things like browning meats or scrambling eggs.

Scrapers: be picky.  Get scrapers with flexible soft rubber blades and blades that are well secured to the handle.  It's a pain when the head comes off of one of these things while you are scraping batter out of a bowl.

Mixing bowls: Several different sizes. Glass, plastic or stainless steel; whatever you like best. I kind of like glass or plastic as they can also be used in a microwave and I want a more curved bowl with as little flat bottom inside as I can get. One with a flat platform outside but completely rounded inside is great.   

Rolling pin:  I'm traditional here. Wood.  Use what you like but I can tell you, you'll be much happier with an actual rolling pin than trying to make pie crusts by rolling it out with a big bottle and a wooden rolling pin just seems to work better for me than plastic, porcelain or stone! 

Flour sifter.  I like the kind with the squeeze handle, not the hand crank. 

Knife:  Once again, a very personal choice.  I have a Dexter sandwich knife that is almost always in my hand.  The shape is just what I want, the blade stays sharp and I use it for almost anything a knife can be used for.  A really good chef with whom I worked had a set of knives that he kept incredibly sharp.  I've seen him use his big knife to slice through a piece of typing paper that was just hanging from the ticket rack...slicing UP through the paper!  Try it.  Also, a bread slicer so you can more easily make uniform slices of the fresh bread you just baked.  I use what they call a “fiddle bow” bread slicer which has a serrated blade, some space and a wooden back so if you cut with the blade into the bread and the wooden back holding the slice in place, each slice is about the same thickness.

 Mixers, electric, hand and stand up.  Kitchenaide standing mixers are the gold standard but I also like my Sunbeam.  Electric hand mixers seem more useful to me for smaller dishes or making stuff for one or two people.  An old fashioned hand cranking mixer is nice to have.  If the power goes out or some other problem exists, being able to crank on your hand mixer and make your whipped cream or cake mix with that can make you the hero! 

Baking pans: 9x13 and 9x9 cake pans .  I like glass the best but regular non-stick or metal cake pans are good. What they call "jelly roll pans" which are basically sheets with a small edge around them.  Multiple sizes.  I also use small pizza pans as cookie sheets or to catch boil-overs in the oven.  If you will be cooking for larger groups then getting larger sizes of these is important. 

Casserole dishes of various sizes are good to have.  Once again, think about how big your groups might be.  You might want pretty good sized dishes. 

Covered roasting pan, preferably with an internal rack.

Sauce pans of various sizes.  You'll be using these for gravies, breakfast cereals and so on. 

Stock pots in various sizes, I have one, two and three gallon ones.

Cooling racks; square, rectangular and round.

If you’ve got all this stuff in your kitchen, you can do almost anything, from baking your own bread to putting together your traditional turkey dinner. 

Like I’ve said, stocking your kitchen with a trip to the second hand store can save a bunch of money and often get you some really nice stuff.  A lot of what I use would be considered antiques but I often find the older stuff is the best.
Now we come to one of my real passions in the cooking world...Cast Iron.  I have skillets, pots, dutch ovens, fryers, griddles...I love 'em.  I have a skillet that is only about 4" in diameter that is just the right size for frying one or two eggs.  I have another skillet that is 15" in diameter that I use for groups.  I can scramble more than a dozen eggs and cook them all at once in this skillet.  I can brown 5lbs of hamburger in it.  Make several small pancakes all at once.  It's great but I pretty much just store it unless I'm doing something like a hunting camp or roundup crew where I'll need to cook large amounts all at once.
And, yes, those of us who are seriously into cast iron cooking are fanatic about caring for it.  NO SOAP!  If I have to scrub it, I put salt in it and use the salt as an abrasive.  Actually, this article at argues with me a little about the soap issue but it's a really good article and explains a lot about why and how to use cast iron.
This article also touches on the fact that older cast iron looks a little different than newer.  Either is good but I am always alert at second hand stores, yard sales and antique stores for older cast iron pans and I've taken some time to research them a little so I have an idea of the value of a pan when I find one.
Here's a picture of the difference between pre-1950 and more recently made cast iron.  The pan on the right is older and was made back when they still polished them as part of the manufacture process.  If you find one with this satiny sheen, it's worth grabbing!
Ok.  If you have the tools I've talked about here you have the makings of a pretty efficient kitchen.  Are there other things?  Of course.  Meat thermometers and candy thermometers.  I once had a thermometer that would show me the surface temp of my pans.  Another cook where I was working broke it.  That's what I get for not taking it home each night.
Anyway, this stuff is a good start.  As we move along here, I'll likely think of other things you should have but, for now, get out to the second hand stores, antique shops and yard sales and get equipped!

We Have Been Warned


Ether 2:12: Behold, this is a choice land, and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall be free from bondage, and from captivity, and from all other nations under heaven, if they will but serve the God of the land, who is Jesus Christ, who hath been manifested by the things which we have written.

Matthew; Chapter 24

Book of Revelations

2 Timothy 3:1-7: "But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth."

Ephesians 6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

Conference Report, Charles W. Nibley, October, 1923:

"Brethren and sisters, let me say in closing that we have it of record, that the prophet Joseph Smith said the time would come when, through secret organizations taking the law into their own hands, not being governed by law or by due process of law, but becoming a law unto themselves, when, by those disintegrating activities, the Constitution of the United States would be so torn and rent asunder, and life and property and peace and security would be held of so little value, that the Constitution would, as it were, hang by a thread."

Conference Report; Ezra Taft Benson, April, 1978:

"Yes, there is a conspiracy of evil. The source of it all is Satan and his hosts. He has a great power over men to “lead them captive at his will, even as many as would not hearken” to the voice of the Lord. (Moses 4:4.) His evil influence may be manifest through governments; through false educational, political, economic, religious, and social philosophies; through secret societies and organizations; and through myriads of other forms. His power and influence are so great that, if possible, he would deceive the very elect. As the second coming of the Lord approaches, Satan’s work will intensify through numerous insidious deceptions."

Conference Report; Ezra Taft Benson, April, 1989:

"Pride results in secret combinations which are built up to get power, gain, and glory of the world (see Helaman 7:5; Ether 8:9, 16, 22-23; Moses 5:31). This fruit of the sin of pride, namely secret combinations, brought down both the Jaredite and the Nephite civilizations and has been and will yet be the cause of the fall of many nations (see Ether 8:18-25)."

Trump/Biden or Biden/Trump: Bring America Together Again!


As we sit here today, 11-7-2020, all the media has "called" the Presidential election for Joe Biden after four days of frantic fraud effort in several states.   A quote here from my friend Kirby Jonas, who very succinctly says what I am thinking:

"I have never seen a bigger farce than this election, and I have to say I am ashamed of and embarrassed for any person who is fool enough to believe the results of the election were real. NO ONE who has truly followed real news for the past four months would believe that two people like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris could have taken this election away from a man with Trump's popularity.

I'm tired of pussy-footing around and trying to appease people. I would be sick and ashamed to be part of a party that would cheat to get a candidate into office. And I'm sick to my stomach to be part of a party that allows the so-called "election results" to stand.

It sickens me knowing that the Democrats can rest easy because they know for a fact Conservatives won't riot and do the same kind of violent crap they do when they don't get their way. Who are we going to attack, after all? The only solution would be for us to rise up and go right to the source--Washington and state capitols. And you know our party won't take up arms and do that. The Dems in power knew it too. They knew their coup would be safe, and now if they can somehow get our guns away before we are all starving to death and in slavery they will have it made.

Ironically, the low-life Democratic voters will be down here starving with us.

Up to and including our nation's War-Between-The-States, I believe this is America's darkest day.

I need to quickly add a different ending on my post! It seems so far that my readers think I have given up this race. I have NOT. Far from it. This thing is going to play out for a LONG time before we allow it to be called--make no mistake about that."

Although the lying media has called this election for Biden/Harris, there is, as Kirby states, a long way to go yet.  This article from NBC News can help understand where we are headed.

This brings up an interesting scenario.

Let's say that President Trump's lawsuits and recounts over the next month or so casts real doubt on the true winner but with no clear win for President Trump either...hmmm. 

The House votes, each state getting a single vote, not each member of the House, so the Dem majority there is not as big an issue.

So, the House vote reelects President Trump and then the Senate has to vote for the Vice President.  I've read, but I'm not certain, that the Vice President in this instance has to be the runner up in the election.  So, we'd have a Trump/Biden Presidency.  This might be a very good thing; maybe bringing our country back together a little more.

What if the House votes Biden into the Presidency?  Well, since the sitting Senate is still a Republican majority, I think we could count on a Vice President Trump and, considering Bidens mental and physical capabilities, back to President Trump in a very short while!

I'd call this a win/win situation, wouldn't you?

Saving this for later

 Copied and pasted:

"I am making this post so it will show back up as a future memory on my timeline: Today is four days after the 2020 election.

Gasoline is currently $1.48 -$2.25 per gallon. Interest rates are 2.99% for a 30 year mortgage— even lower if you have great credit.

The stock market closed at 28323.40, even though we have been fighting COVID for 9 months.

Our GDP growth for the 3rd Qtr was 33%. We had the best economy ever until COVID and it is recovering well.

We have not had any new wars or conflicts in the last 4 years. North Korea has been under control and has not been testing any missiles. Isis has not been heard from for over 3 years.

The housing market is the strongest in over 20 years. Homes have appreciated at an unbelievable rate and sell within hours of going on the market, with multiple offers, and often above asking.

In case our President actually loses this election, I can remind myself of how great things were at one point in our history.

Keep a copy to compare later.

What do They have in store for us?

Listen to and follow the science, right?  Follow the CDC and do as we're told.

Ok.  Let's look at that.  According to a report done by the CDC, based on studies in July, 2020 of 154 positive cases of Covid19...70% of those testing positive claimed to "always" wear a mask.  Presumably, they also follow all the fear advice and "social distance" and all that crap.  70%.  Only 6% of the positive cases said they "never" wear a mask.  I'm guessing those 6% also just live their lives, hugging, going out to restaurants and bars, talking with people and just being normal.

In the world of common sense, this would tell me that wearing masks has no bearing on whether you will catch this stupid virus.

Next, the lockdowns.  We have already seen that the lockdowns caused massive economic destruction as well as personal issues such as depression and violence.  Not to mention the damage done to our children with this enforced separation from their friends.  Then, the incredibly unjust and cruel separation of people from their families in times of great stress, when in any medical or nursing facility!  

Are the lockdowns effective and worth the collateral damage?  Well, according to the World Health

Is this virus as contagious, virulent and deadly as we are led to believe?  Well, let's just look at Sturgis, shall we?  

A post online claims that only .02% of Sturgis rally attendees came down with Covid19.  USA today went to great lengths to debunk this and carefully researched it.  Here is their conclusion:

"Our rating: False

We rate the claim that the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally led to 88 positive tests attributed to the rally, which is a 0.02% infection rate among attendees, as FALSE because it was not supported by our research. The state of South Dakota has attributed 124 cases in the state to the rally. The Associated Press reported that at least 290 people in 12 states who attended the rally have also tested positive. Taken together, that's an infection rate of 0.09%."

So, an open rally, with over 460,000 attendees, resulted in 414 cases of Covid19 and one death.  A Covid19 contagion rate of .09%.  That's the best USA Today can do?  They WANT us to be terrified of Covid19 but even THEY have to admit that there was a negligible case spread from such a massive event.

President Trump tested positive and was in and out of the hospital in four days and worked the whole time.  Our First Lady has complained of a cough and a headache and she's just remained at the White House, without being hospitalized.

According to the CDC info, the majority of deaths attributable to Covid19 are in the ages from 60 up.  and, 94% of deaths overall are of people with other contributing they call them.  Only 6% of deaths blamed on covid19 are actually FROM Covid19.

97.3% of all the Americans who have actually caught this disease have recovered.  Look at the numbers.  7,856,605 Americans have had this virus so far and 7,640,718  have recovered.

Here's some more interesting information.

2017 Total Deaths US: 2,813,503 (234,000/month)

2018 Total Deaths US: 2,839,205 (237,000/month)

2019 Total Deaths US: 2,855,000 (238,000/month)

2020 Total Deaths US (jan - week 9/26): 2,130,000 (236,000/month)…/Weekly-Counts-of-Deaths-by…/muzy-jte6

So, why are our health officials, Governor and media completely disregarding all this information?  It's out there for all of us to see but "T"hey are not reporting any of it.  In fact, They are acting as if these facts...Their OWN facts!...just don't exist.

They are talking about another lockdown, even though we KNOW that won't work and is actually bad for us.  They are enforcing illegal and unconstitutional Mask Mandates, even though They know, because of Their own studies, that masks have little or no positive effect against the virus and might even have negative health effects for the sheeple who are wearing them.

I'd have never made a good con man as I just can't see the scams.  I can't understand how this continued deliberate ignorance of Their own facts benefits Them at all.  Is it just the evidence of Their power over the majority?  Is there a financial gain for the most powerful of Them?  Do They just like to see what we, the mice, will do in the maze?

Or, is there a much larger plan which involves identifying people, like myself, who are able to see through the bullshit and just not comply?  They are trying very hard to make it difficult for us to buy or sell without our face diaper.  They are limiting our Church attendance and even our ability to congregate together for anything.  Keeping us isolated from each other except for these social media platforms which They control and monitor.

They know who Their resisters are.  Those who won't wear the face diaper.  Those who make posts like this one on any computer media.  Those of us who can read and think for ourselves MUST be weeded out!

Don't believe it?  Ask Ammon Bundy.  Or Lavoy Finicum.

Open Carry...or not?

This is definitely an opinion piece today and I've thought a lot about how to say it.

I'm certainly a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment.  The idea of open carry is laudable and I'm glad to see states and cities allowing open carry.  That said, I have some observations.

First, "war story time".  And also, I'm aware that my opinions are colored by the fact that I'm an "old guy" and not as well informed about the equipment of today as I probably should be.

During my time in Law Enforcement, I was often in critical situations where the threat of deadly violence was imminent.  More than once, my partner or backup got out the shotgun in case things went really bad.  When that cloud of tension is in the air and lead could fly at any moment, the thought that one of us was armed with a more devastating weapon than a handgun was comforting.  But, when the situation de-escalates into a fistfight:  when I am rolling around in the mud with some drugged out scumball, trying desperately to get the cuffs on partner with the shotgun was useless.  It's a clumsy club and you can't just lay it down or put it back in your holster.  Run back to the car, secure the shotgun and then run back to help me on the ground.  By then, I'm done, one way or the other.

The same thing can apply to an open carry situation.  Let's do a hypothetical here.  Let's say a couple of friends and I are helping our community in one of these riots by standing between looters and community businesses.  My friend is open carrying his AR.  I am armed with nothing more than bear spray or maybe my old PR24 and unarmed Antifa scum presses forward, forcing me into hand to hand fighting.  What good is my backup guy?  I've got three or four unarmed black-clad guys trying to punch and kick me and I'm trying to fight back.  Deadly force may be justified but also maybe not.  Fine line/grey area.  Does my partner use that AR against some unarmed "peaceful protesters"?  Ever hear of  George Zimmerman?

If he was carrying a concealed handgun, in a secured holster, then he could jump in and help me.  He'd still have to be aware of any attempt to take his weapon but it's much less likely than if he had to wrestle with some guys over that long gun.

That brings up holsters.  If you must open carry, maybe it would be smarter to use a more secure holster.  One of those open top, friction retention holsters looks pretty neat and is great in a competition on the range but may not be the best choice for just carrying.  Something that covers more of the weapon and has some security retention is possibly a better choice?

This article had a lot of good information.

Long ago, at Lowry Air Force Base, I backed up another patrol on a traffic stop.  Just as I arrived, the situation "went south" and we were in a fight...Rick with the driver and me with the passenger.  Neither

of us had time to radio for help so it was just us and them.  Actually, I wound up unable to call for help because I'd broken my radio on my suspects head.  Got 'im cuffed though and ran around the car to help Rick.  I found a civilian holding Rick's weapon while Rick finished up handcuffing the original suspect.  You can imagine the tension there for a moment as I confronted the guy with Rick's gun.  But (the point of the story) it turned out that his holster had come undone and the weapon went clattering along the street!  This guy had stopped to see if he could help and Rick had asked him to find the weapon and get it out of harms way.  Holster quality was a big part of the issue.

I carried a handgun everywhere I went for many years.  I remember only once in my career that I took it out of the holster when I was off-duty.  There were several situations in that time period where I had hold of it and was prepared to draw but never did.  Thanks to God, I never had to fire my weapon, either on or off duty.

I did, however, have to fight many times over the years.  From as mild as a quick wristlock-to-handcuff scuffle to a biting, punching, rolling in the mud life and death fight.  Handcuffs, pepper spray and my PR24 all got  their share of use. 

When the lead is in the air, I want an AR or a shotgun.  If the situation could go either way and the need for a firearm hasn't arisen,  I want my hands free and any weapon I might have to be secure.  

In conclusion, I am not a big fan of open carry, even of a handgun.  Keeping it out of sight and out of mind until it's needed is the way I would want to do it.  Those who disagree, for whatever reason; well, that's what freedom is all about.  You do your thing and I'll do mine.  But, if you are carrying openly, be aware that your potential opponents are as conscious of your weapon as you and some of them would like to take it from you.

Kids Today

I've been having a back and forth with a Democrat friend of mine. Both of us spouting the same arguments to the same result...nothing. Actually, I enjoy my debates with die hard Dems. I have no illusion that I'll change them but I'm hoping that others, who really don't have a strong feeling either way, are reading our posts and might actually learn the truth. Anyway, something he said strongly affected me. He is absolutely right in a way. He says that we old white guys aren't the voting majority anymore. He's right on there but I'll take it a step further. Those of us who actually remember a common sense, fair and Free America are getting old. An America with two genders, cleaner and nicer entertainment and real men and LADIES we could look up to. An America where it wasn't shocking that your family had guns and hunted. An America where hard work and ambition were rewarded while sloth and indifference were not. An America where I could spend my day in the mountains, on a bicycle, with no instant communication and no real fear for my well being. I swore I'd never sound like my mother but..."These kids today"...

Today's voting age "children" are of the participation trophy era. The era of 20+ year olds still living with Mommy. Often no clear genders. Certainly no common sense. A time where a large part of the voting age children couldn't qualify for military service if they wanted to! No wonder the idea of giving up freedoms for government handouts gains such support. These kids are living in a world where handouts are just expected. I see it at work every day. Most of these kids are there to get a paycheck. The concept of actually doing the work to EARN a paycheck is completely mystifying. They do as little as possible, just putting in the hours so they can get a check once in a while. They're just warm bodies. Names on the schedule. What's worse is they are at the pinnacle of their life's achievments already. No wonder they want a higher minimum wage. They don't expect, plan or aspire to do anything more than minimum wage jobs. Participation trophies again.

Back to sounding like my mother..."in my day"... Yeah. When I was 19 I was making life and death decisions in a foreign country. I've known kids who are in their 20's and still don't even have a drivers license. Kids with no real ambition or goals. These are the kids who vote for Bernie Sanders. Who think America is a terrible place because we still have a "Capitalist System" as opposed to a "gimmee free stuff" system. We've been sliding downhill for quite a while and if we don't stop the descent pretty soon, we'll be a nation of pajama boys, being led by the TV and the internet to do whatever our Masters tell us.

Some news that might interest you

I shared several things this morning that I had found in my FB news feed. I thought each was interesting and worth passing on to friends who might not have seen them.

The trouble is that this was an idea/thought provoking and interesting morning on my FB feed and the importance of some of these might fall through the cracks.

Maybe if I share some links here to some of the stuff....

5 year old Cannon Hinnant was shot and killed while riding his bicycle near his residence in North Carolina. A couple of things stand out to me in this story. First, the Main Stream Media
has all but blacked it out. They report only the five W's of it and go on to other things as quickly as possible. This story from Newsweek is an excellent example:
Newsweek Cannon Hinnant article

Our nation, right now, is in the throws of violent rioting and destruction, purportedly due to racism by white people against black people. I contend that most racism would just drift away if the Media and most notably the left-wing media, would just leave the racial component out of things. In their story about Cannon, Newsweek does a remarkable job of just that. A "man" shot a boy. No mention of race. Under most circumstances, I'd applaud that. But, in this case, it seems somewhat hypocritical as it was a "black" man who shot a white boy. Reverse those races and this story would be front page for months and buildings would burn!

This is the post I shared this morning:

 "250,000 bikers in Sturgis South Dakota. Many bikers carry pistols concealed, others carry openly. No shootings. No stabbings. No murders. No looting. No police assaulted. No statues torn down. No destruction of private or public property. No traffic blocked. 250,000 bikers with 84 total arrests, mostly for public intoxication. Contrast those numbers with what happens EVERY WEEKEND in Chicago. Badass Bikers Matter."

Here's a pretty good report of the crimes and traffic issues encountered by South Dakota Law Enforcement. This post is right on!

Overall, hangs this meme. It's true, it's timely and it's urgent!

Two Issues which Must Be Dealt With!

At present, we have two major issues in our country.

First, the Corona virus "pandemic".  It has morphed from a viral pandemic which affected most of the world to major political issue here in the United States.  The disease is really being shunted aside by those in power.  "They" have been deliberately lying about and concealing an effective treatment and even preventative treatment for this Covid19 madness.  Why?  Most likely money.  

The Hydroxychloroquine (or Quercetin)/Zinc/Azithromycin treatment is very $5 a treatment?  The vaccine They are trying to produce and the Remdisivir treatment They promote are both very expensive.  Also, Covid19 hospitalizations and/or deaths are worth a pretty good check to the hospitals involved.

As a bonus, They are able to use this virus as a club against President Trump in Their fevered effort to remove him from office.

Second, the riots occurring in many of our major cities.

The death of George Floyd was tragic and probably unjustified.  But, those who are willing to take any road to get rid of our President saw it as more.  A White Cop and a black "victim" played right into Their hands so it was hyped by Their media and protests about it were agitated to produce riots and violence to an extent we haven't seen in 60 years or more.

Now, the Mainstream Media deliberately downplays the rioting, calling it "peaceful protest" and use it as an example of how ineffective our President must be.  At the same time, those normal citizens who live in these riot zones are being hurt, both physically and financially.  Our citizens are suffering because an elite group of Deep State insiders want anarchy.

And our government is completely useless, partly because Democrat Governors and Mayors are following the orders from Them and allowing the rioting and destruction to continue.  Their police forces are acting as if their oath is to the Governor, Mayor and city council; not to God, themselves and the people.  The police are following the "orders from on high".  Thus, the violence gets worse by the day.

President Trump needs to make the Hydroxychloroquine treatment available to any doctor who wants to try it, without repercussions.  

Those who have deliberately concealed these treatments, for their own purposes, (Can you say; "Fauci"? "Gates"? "Big Pharma"?) should be charged with Murder and Treason.

It's far past the time for the President to invoke the Insurrection Act and send the Military in to these rioting cities and just clean it up.  Shoot whoever you must and arrest the leaders.  You think the FBI doesn't know who the real leaders are of all this?  Quick, surgical arrests would put a stop to it all in a hurry, along with overwhelming force against the sheep who are just following the orders of Those Behind the Scenes.

US ‘Frontline’ Doctors’ website exposes CRIMINAL CAMPAIGN by tech giants, govt agencies to block COVID cure

I'm not writing my own article today as I found this one on Facebook and it says everything I've been saying

The withholding, concealment and censorship of the FACT that the Hydroxychloroquine treatments work.  That those treatments not only alleviate the symptoms of Covid 19 but can even prevent it...Those acts by our Main Stream Media, Social Media and President Trump's advisors have needlessly cost the lives of thousands of people.  This disinformation (lying) campaign against these treatments is not only, in my opinion, Murder and Treason but actually Crimes Against Humanity.

Basic radio comm information

This is a repost on this blog.  The original was in October, 2014.  I've added a few things here.

I'm reposting this because, as events in our country become more and more chaotic, we may find ourselves in what we Preppers call an SHTF (Shit Hits The Fan) situation.  Or maybe even TEOTWAWKI (The end of the world as we know it). Good communications will be important.

I spent a fair amount of time deciding what I wanted to do for personal communications. First, I considered what I want to accomplish.

I'm not greatly interested in communicating with the big world. I just want to keep in contact with my close group, family and friends and CB radio or the GMRS/FRS bubble pack radios meet my goals just fine for little expense.

But, in doing all this research, I read many posts and articles advocating an amateur (Ham) radio license and some radios to go with it so I started reading up on that. There is no longer a requirement for Morse code to get your basic (technician) ham license, there is just a written test covering FCC rules and some basic radio and electronics information; most of which I have learned in 16 years of working on computers. I took the test and got my license.

Most ham radios are semi-expensive but I could afford an HT (handi-talkie) made in China that uses
the VHF and UHF frequency bands. I bought the Bao-Feng UV-5R, got a better antenna for it, a battery replacement that plugs into my cigarette lighter and a magnetic antenna for the car; all for about $100 and kind of spread out these purchases over a month or so. There are several models of these. I have two UV-5Rs with better antennas, extra batteries, external mic and cigarette lighter battery. I would also recommend the programming cable as the keyboard programming is kind of a pain.

On the 2 meter band (Very High Frequency or VHF), 144MHZ-150MHZ (give or take) the local Ham clubs have repeaters set up. These are non-government, privately owned and maintained. They link together giving me reliable communications from Great Falls to Billings to Vegas and Tucson, all with my little 4Watt HT! I was thrilled.

In addition, High Frequency (HF) radios and antennas are available which will provide good long range communications through what we CBers call "Skip"; bouncing the signal off the ionosphere. Those are a little more expensive but I found a used Kenwood and set it up.  I'm using a home built fan dipole antenna and have talked with people throughout the U.S. on it.

So, I now have a good SSB capable CB radio in the house and all vehicles, another UV-5R that I can set up in a car with a magnetic antenna or I can put the long "rubber ducky" antenna on it and carry it anywhere. I also splurged on Ebay and got a VHF mobile radio for my main vehicle.
When I'm at home, I just connect another magnetic antenna (I live in a metal trailer house) to a UV-5R and have a serviceable base.

Here's a rundown on basic radios available to us.

CB: Citizens Band: ( No license required. We all remember these. CB was a big deal in the 70s but cell phones have made them less popular although most truck drivers still have and use them and there is a big hobby group who try to "skip" signals for distance (DX) contacts, mostly on the SSB channels. CB is good for between 5 and 15 miles and you can have mobiles in your car, walkie talkies in your hand and base stations in your house. They are easy to find but on the expensive side. A CB with SSB channels will run over $200 plus getting a decent antenna. The system in my house cost me about $350 and I was buying on Ebay. SSB radios aren't as easy to come by locally but they are worth it.

MURS: Multiple Use Radio Service ( No license required. Maximum legal transmit at 1watt. Five frequencies available. Line of sight signal. This is a pretty good way to keep in local/close contact. A legal MURS radio will give you about one-two miles of communication range with a compact HT type radio but there are only five frequencies to choose from and I'm not sure where to buy the radios.  The Boefeng radios will program to MURS channels but you can only turn their transmit power down to 2 watts.  Frankly, I doubt the FCC or anyone else will notice but, technically, using the BeoFeng radios on MURS frequencies is illegal.

FRS: Family radio service (
No license required. These are the bubble pack radios you can buy at sporting goods stores, Walmart, Amazon and so on. The radios that have a stubby little antenna and 14 channels are FRS radios. Legal transmit is .5 Watts (500 milliwatts), giving you about the same range; maybe a little less, as the MURS but these radios are easy to find and fairly inexpensive.

GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service
( Need a family license that requires no test but does require $85 for the FCC. These are also the bubble pack radios you find all over. If you find one that says it has two power ranges and/or has 28+ channels, this is a combination of FRS and GMRS in one handheld. GMRS has a lot of capabilities over FRS but GMRS requires a license. Licensed GMRS users can use up to 50 watts of transmit power, repeaters and radios with better antenna. If you check the fine print on the package of the little handi-talkie radios you just got from Amazon, it will tell you that you can't transmit on the GMRS channels without a license but I think the FCC is going to be kind of overwhelmed soon and I'd be surprised if the licensing thing lasts much longer.  

The Baofeng radios are all programmable for MURS, FRS, GMRS and Ham frequencies. Certainly they provide much more transmit power than is legal for FRS and for MURS. Also, they are not really type accepted by the FCC for those frequencies. They are only legal for licensed Amateur radio users to use on the approved Ham radio frequencies on the 2 meter and 70cm bands; VHF and UHF.

One of these little radios can be programmed to use everything listed here except CB if you want. It just isn't legal.

In addition, they can be set up as police scanners as you can program in the police frequencies. I strongly suggest, if you are going to do this,that you get the CHIRP software and a programming cable so you can tell the radio NOT to transmit on the police/fire/public service frequencies as it would be easy to accidentally do so when you are listening and I can guarantee a visit from the FCC if that kind of thing happens!

So, you can buy a nice little walkie talkie for around $40 which can be programmed to work with other radios you may have already gotten, can listen to Public Service agencies and can be used on ham radio frequencies, basically any VHF/UHF frequency, and will provide decent transmit power and communication range for almost any scenario.

After going down this road myself, I will say that I recommend getting your Amateur Radio license, joining a local Ham Radio club and learning more about this hobby. As I said at the beginning, I figured that CB and GMRS would meet my goals but I found that there is a lot more about radios and communication that I want to learn and be involved in.

When I was hiking in the mountains of Montana last summer I was often in areas where I had no cell coverage. Face it, in Montana, I'm often in my car on the freeway without cell phone coverage! But, now that I can use the VHF repeaters that are available almost anywhere, I am almost never without reliable communication. That can literally be a lifesaver if you travel much and the knowledge you gain in using these radios might serve you and your group very well in an SHTF situation.

I've set up my camp trailer with a good battery/solar system so that I have plenty of electrical power available.  I have an antenna that I can throw over a tree limb and have reliable communications on HF radio.  My VHF antenna can be placed on the roof of my trailer and give me a little more distance on my handheld and I have CBs in all my vehicles.  Wherever we have to go, my family, friends and myself can keep in contact and reasonable contact can be maintained with other groups in our area.

For many years, people have been trying to be prepared for the times in which we live today.  Are you laughing at Preppers today?

Dr. Zelenko Treatment Information

Dr. Vladimir Zelenko
Folks, we know, now, that They have been letting us die for no reason.  The advisors to President Trump, Dr. Fauci and others, have been lying to him and to us about  the Hydroxychloroquin treatment for Covid19.

Read this article!!
Facebook Fact Checkers mark it as untrue.  THEY are the liars and everyone involved in the coverup of the Hydroxychloroquine treatments should be prosecuted for Murder and Treason!

I watched this video; an interview with Dr. Zelenko, one of the more prominent Doctors advocating Hydroxychloroqine treatments for prevention and cure of covid19.  I found the video a little hard to watch as there are ads to put up with, but the information was enlightening.

One of the things I learned from this video is that a nutritional supplement called quercetin can have much the same effect as the drug, Hydroxychloroqine, but quercetin is available over the counter.

Dr. Zelenko says that he has used quercetin to replace Hydroxychloroqine when patients had a hard time getting prescriptions for Hydroxychloroqine due to current politics.

Here are some quotes from various internet articles about Dr. Zelenko and his treatments.

Dr. Vladimir Zelenko says: 
"My outpatient treatment regimen is as follows:
1.  Hydroxychloroquine, 200mg, twice a day for five days.
2.  Azithromycin, 500mg , once a day for five days.
3.  Zinc Sulphate, 220mg, once a day for five days.

We know that hydroxychloroquine helps Zinc enter the cell. We know that Zinc slows viral replication within the cell. Regarding the use of azithromycin, I postulate it prevents secondary bacterial infections. These three drugs are well known and usually well tolerated, hence the risk to the patient is low."

“Hydroxychloroquine’s main function is to allow zinc to enter the cell, while zinc is a virus killer,” Zelenko added. “Azithromycin prevents secondary bacterial infection in the lungs, and reduces the risk of pulmonary complications. So zinc is the bullet, hydroxychloroquine is the gun, and azithromycin is the protective vest.

He also had this to say, on Twitter, concerning quercetin and zinc as preventatives of Covid 19:
"ASK YOUR DOCTOR, but I recommend anyone over 20 to take quercetin 500mg one day and elemental zinc 25mg one a day indefinitely in order to prevent Covid-19 and potentially some other viral infections"

You should also know that the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons has filed suit against the FDA against their limiting use of hydroxichloroquine in treatment of covid 19.

As well as the fact that the Lancet medical journal has retracted it's article outlining the testing which showed that the hydroxychloroqine treatments were dangerous, because the study was not only flawed but factually untrue.

They've been lying to us, people, at the cost of THOUSANDS of lives!  There MUST be some accountability here.  It's crazy that we just shrug our shoulders and go on believing Them in the face of all the evidence in front of us!
