One Day You May Have To Pick Up A Sword

Come on folks!  The handwriting is on the wall.  The tealeaves have all been read.  There is no way to peacefully and amicably heal the irreconcilable differences between the left and the right and the liberal and the conservative.  We are hopelessly divided...

The 5-Year Ultimatum

Americans have witnessed the slow, insidious, systematic destruction of almost every American value of individual liberty enshrined in the U. S. Constitution, by those who subscribe to the Progressive, socialist, liberal, left, or Democratic Party ideology.

You Can Hide From Government But Not For Long

However, the days of the silent majority being silent, must be over.  Once we realize that, if the silent majority suddenly united as one in defiance of more laws and more of our money and our children's money being stolen by the government, at the point of a gun, (just try not paying your taxes) to buy off banks, businesses and irresponsible individuals, we could turn America around in months.

Environmentalists Have Every American In A Chokehold

People will believe anything if it is told to them often enough. Hitler knew that and used it to get the entire German population believing that they were the chosen race and superior to all other races and therefore they must conquer the rest of the world by force and become rulers of the world.

What Do Socialists and Environmentalists Really Want?

Nevertheless, rural landowners still have rights, even though socialist Democrats are trying to take those rights away almost every day by Congressional legislation and bureaucratic rule making.  The Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act are two of the more egregious pieces of legislation (law) that eat away at property rights, or eliminate those rights altogether.

Democrats Have and Are Tearing the Nuclear Family Asunder

The glue that binds us all together is the bond forged in families - husband, wife and children. It is a powerful bond, held together by love, mutual respect and a large dose of pre-programmed genetics. The saying that "blood is thicker than water" gets it roots from the bond of family.

Mable, I Don’t Get It. What Happened To America?

Mable: "Now George, don't get yourself all upset about things you can't change. You have high blood pressure and you're taking medicine for your heart.  The last time you got all worked up, you started getting chest pains and we had to call the doctor."

Democrats, Lay Off My Hamburger And My Guns

God knows how any clear-thinking American can accept or believe in this insane, anti-American "bilge" being spewed by the Democrat presidential candidates, or the Democrat party itself.  If that is what America has become, you might just as well condemn the U. S. Constitution to the nearest bathroom for toilet paper.

Customer Service Has Gone To Hell In America

At great risk to themselves, the young people of Hong Kong are crying out for freedom in massive protests throughout the city. Why aren't our young Americans crying out for freedom?  Just the opposite is true. They're crying out for socialism and "free" stuff.  That's what three generations of Progressive brainwashing has done.

Sucked In By Technology – Brainwashed By Education

Added to this toxic soup of Progressivism is the deadly whirlpool of technological seduction.  Sadly, a powerful but flawed ideology and an incurable addiction have become the norm in the general population of America and if that ideology and addiction are not defeated, America has no future as a free nation.

Confront The Bully Or Be His Slave

America is at a cross roads, a turning point. What we do, or don't do now, will determine the fate of freedom for all future generations on the entire planet, from this moment forward.

Jack, They Want To Take My Baby

All over America, government agents and law enforcement, supported by very restrictive laws passed by your representatives in local, state and the federal government, are invading the lives of American citizens on issues that would have caused a revolution, if in-acted 100 years ago.

There Is Only One Inviolate Truth In The Declaration

It was White Europeans that brought a totally unique kind of freedom to America, a freedom based on the irrevocable principle (an inviolate truth) that "man is endowed by his creator with certain unalienable rights, that among those rights are life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness."

Yes, White Men Built America. It’s A Fact

Out of the Renaissance came the subject of humanism that prescribed certain natural rights to every individual.  John Locke, English philosopher and physician, (1632 - 1704) was regarded as one of the most revered Enlightenment thinkers of the time on the subject of natural human rights and freedom

Is The 4th Of July Truly Independence Day?

We believe that if the people look to government to solve their problems and acquiesce to its unauthorized power, they abdicate their duty and responsibility to control their own lives and hand it over to a collective.

Are There Any Mavericks Left In America?

This was a time in North America where impossible things were accomplished by men of vision, cooperative governments and willing investors who saw the opportunities for opening up entire continents to growing populations.

There Is No Law But Democrat-Deep State Law

Our corporations and unions are another enemy that has merged with the government against the people.  Our government, instead of serving us, gives corporations and unions pretty much of a free hand while pitting us against each other.  Government has lost its connection to the Constitution and exceeds its authority more and more each day.

Crushing Regulations Spell Doom For The Rural Landowner

We learned recently that we blind-sided the commission with our allegations against the land use administrator and their land use code.  As a result the rancher was able to obtain his permits.  He was very grateful.  This is just one of tens of thousands of stories of the rural landowner being besieged by draconian regulations, city, county, state and federal.

What Happened To America’s Will To Be Free?

We wrote this article in response to the lack of response we received for our Citizen Grand Jury project to stop illegal immigration.  We spent days and days putting this project together, creating the web page and drafting the documents.  But alas we were forced to scrap it due to insufficient interest.  If enough people had participated, it would have been effective.  Essentially, we were greeted by a deafening silence.

Fight Back With The American People’s Citizen Grand Jury

The American People's Citizen Grand Jury has three goals, investigation of the crime or crimes of illegal entry into the United States by illegal aliens (the crime is self-evident), documenting the evidence of the crime or crimes (affidavit of the evidence is drafted), and finally, a presentment of the evidence in an indictment (indictment drafted).   The investigation has already been conducted and is public knowledge, as is the evidence of the crime or crimes perpetrated by foreign nationals.

Overwhelmed By A Clear And Present Danger

1,000 illegal immigrants add up to 12,000 illegal immigrants in a year, in just one small area of Florida.  Cities and towns in New Mexico, Texas, Arizona and California, and all around America, are being flooded with illegal aliens by the tens of thousands.

Done In By Our Own Irrational Compassion

There is no question!  By simple logic, illegal immigration has been and continues to be a deadly invasion of guns, drugs, humans carrying diseases, taking American jobs, soaking up "free" welfare, housing, education and health care benefits and adding to America's crime rate.

Lest We Forget The Heroes Of America’s Silent Revolution

Deep in your heart and mind are the roots of freedom and the courage to defend it. Like a tree that gains sustenance for survival through its roots, we too can gain sustenance and courage from our roots in which resides the indelible memory of our hard-won freedom over two centuries ago.

We Will Not Surrender To A Democrat Aristocracy

Maybe a large percentage of Americans are buying it, but we're not. We're not buying the Democrat's insane Green New Deal, open borders, or its Medicare-for-all, or its abolishing ICE and the Electoral College. We're not falling for allowing the prisoners in our prisons to vote.

Nothing Will Change Until The People Act

A million authors can write a zillion articles on what ails America. Well meaning patriots can hold thousands of conferences on freedom. Half the people in a country can talk and debate until they are blue in the face, but it won't change anything.

The DNC Trojan Horse, Facebook (And Google And Twitter)

Most of the employees of the three major social media companies and their founders are products of our liberal colleges, not to mention being subjected to three generations of social Democrat indoctrinations in public schools and academia. That they lean left en masse should hardly be a shock.

Is The Great Western Rural Lifestyle Dying?

The question lingers in the minds of many landowners, is the Great Western Rural Lifestyle dying or dead? Sadly, many demographic and geopolitical indicators, as well as massive environmental regulations, point to a dying trend for the small to medium sized family farm and ranch.

Face It, Can American Freedom Be Saved Peacefully?

What catalyst will trigger an uprising? What action by government will send the people into the streets by the millions saying, "we aren’t going to take it any more?" (It should have happened years ago) What charismatic leader will come along and coalesce the people into a unified force for freedom? These questions have yet to be answered
