You Caused It. You’re Guilty. Shut Up and Comply

Of all the emotions that control human behavior, guilt, fear and anger are the most destructive. Guilt can make us change our behavior for the good or bad. Fear can stop us in our tracks. Anger can make us act in an uncontrollable manner, where reason, logic and common sense are absent. Government has mastered the use of guilt, fear and subterfuge to manipulate and control the people.

In The Human Species, All Roads Lead To Insanity

On January 1, 1958 Chinese Communist Party Chairman Mao Zedong announced his new “Great Leap Forward” for the people of China.  The net result of Chairman Mao’s plans for improving the economy of China resulted in the deaths of between 20 to 46 million Chinese, mostly from starvation due to a massive, government-created famine

An Open Letter To The Biden-Harris Campaign and Democrats

You support Black Lives Matter (BLM) but BLM is a Marxist organization intent on tearing down by force, America’s institutions and system of government.  BLM is no better than violent ANTIFA, or the old Weather Underground, or Students For A Democratic Society.

The Scary Similarities Between FDR’s New Deal and the Coronavirus

During the Great Depression, that many believe was caused by the Federal Reserve, millions of Americans lost their jobs, their life’s savings, their homes and some their lives.  Something had to be done to save the country but did that something go beyond government’s enumerated powers?  The answer is a resounding yes!

The Only Way To Confront Violence Is With Force

Now there may be another way to confront the anarchists, with a show of force.  The good people of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho came out in full force carrying guns when they heard that ANTIFA was on their way to protest in Coeur d’Alene.  When ANTIFA showed up, heavily armed civilians escorted them out of town.  Not a shot was fired.  The PEOPLE spoke!

An Irrevocable Message To Every Politician And Bureaucrat

The stage is set.  There are those among us that are itching for a fight.  Civilians are heavily armed and growing more armed by the day out of fear of rising government tyranny.  All the first act of this violent revolutionary play needs is a trigger and the trigger could be some inconsequential, unexpected event that ends up being the “shot heard ‘round the world”.  It could come at any moment.

When The Bullets of Freedom Ring, America Will Be Saved

What we do know is this.  America is reaching a boiling point in its long life.  It is not the first, but seems to be the worst.  The tension is very high.  The bonds that held us together are coming unglued. Congress could fix it, but they won’t.  The news media could quit fanning the racial flames, but they won’t.  Trump can only try, but without a unified Congress, he is impotent.

BLM, Covid-19 and Climate Change, 3 Great International Cons

The Irrational Emotion and Radical Idealism of the Young

One of the great quotes that came from the movie, Forest Gump, was “stupid is as stupid does.”  It covers a multitude of situations and none more so than the many times irrational behavior of the young, driven by seemingly boundless energy and a total lack of direction, sound judgment, ethics, or experience.

Americans, Once Defenders of Freedom, Have Turned Into Frightened Sheep

The forces of evil have stripped your land of civility and reason.  Domestic terrorists, with only violence on their minds, have invaded your peaceful tranquility.  They care nothing about you, your property, or your right to live and work in peace.  They laugh at you while you scurry for cover, or complain to a government that doesn’t hear you.

If Black Lives Matter, Then Why Are They Burning Down Their Own Businesses?

Most, if not all blacks have never seen Africa.  Most of them were born and bred right here in America and have had the opportunity to participate in the American dream but instead have decided, with the Democrat’s help, that they are victims of a racist society and must be pampered and given special privileges that they seem to be too weak to get on their own.

Let The Cops Do It. Oops! The Cops Are Gone

If you let the bully win, whether it is ANTIFA, Black Lives Matter, or the government, you will be forever stuck with the outcome.  Take away the cops and the street bullies will have even greater power.  Let politicians take away your individual liberty and “NO LIVES WILL MATTER.”  Right now, the bully is winning in places like Seattle, Washington DC, Los Angeles, San Francisco...

If There Is No Consequence There Is Only Anarchy

This is what you get when government jurisdictions pass no-bail laws for criminals and lets them back into society after committing a crime.  This is what you get when prosecutors will not prosecute low-level crimes.  This is what you get when shop-lifting, looting and arson are non-punishable crimes.

Now It’s Rack ‘Em, Stack ‘Em ….. and Track ‘Em!

Finally, government has gone way too far and the people are revolting in huge numbers all across America by ignoring un-Constitutional executive orders.  We say, it's way past time to do so.  The protests and revolt should have happened over 100 years ago as government tightened the screws on American freedom.

It Took A Virus Lockdown To Make Us Appreciate Freedom

Tens of millions of Americans can't pay their mortgages, rent, or utility bills and are struggling to keep food on the table.  Suddenly, they come to the conclusion that their freedoms are being taken away by government. Again, where have they been for the last 100 plus years?

How Do You Stop A Government That’s Gone Rogue?

The institutions of government have been turned against the people and their individual, God-given rights have been abrogated and dissolved by government fiat.  The people have been done in by an ideology that focuses on the collective, not the individual.  They have also been done in by their own negligence and refusal to preserve, protect and defend their own freedom.

How Easily We Allow Government To Suspend Our Rights

If government can abrogate the Constitution and suspend your rights, it then follows that they can take away your guns, prohibit you from speaking, stop you from peaceably assembling, interfere with the free expression of religion, outlaw the redress of grievances and take over the free press.

How Close Are We To Living Like The Chinese?

Americans may not be living like the Chinese are today, but how long will it be before the American government sets a Chinese style social order system for the virus?  How long will it be before all Americans must have a government-issued card that says they are virus free, or an RFID chip planted in a person's earlobe containing all of their personal information?

Don’t Blame Trump For The Virus, Blame Big Cities

Most of us know by now that the Coronavirus erupted in Wujan, China, a VERY LARGE city of 11 million people, sometime in November of 2019.  Allegedly, the outbreak was supposed to have occurred in the Wujan Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market.  However, there has been much debate as to whether the virus was accidentally released from a bio lab in the vicinity.  We may never know the true origin of the virus.

Are Humans In The Throes Of A Mass Extinction?

Whether the human species goes extinct in the near future is up for grabs.  What is not up for grabs is the eventual and permanent loss of national sovereignty and individual freedom. We're well on our way. Government virus control through mandatory quarantine is just another example of rising central government interference in our lives ..... in the name of public health and safety.

The Extreme Pain Of Government-Mandated Quarantine

Once the people bow down to government's authority to rob them of their freedom and do nothing to hold government accountable, or change government's behavior, or stop them in their tracks, the people's freedom is lost forever.  That is what is at stake in the debate over government-mandated quarantine.

The Coronavirus May Not Get You But Socialism Could

Remember!  The Coronavirus' impact on humanity will be fleeting and short lived like most of these viruses. America will bounce back, probably stronger than ever. However, socialism and its savage effects will infect the entire world, including America, if we let it.

Where Else Can It Lead But Civil War?

It is our belief that either civil war or revolution is inevitable due to irreconcilable differences between two diabolically opposed ideologies, even though we sincerely hope otherwise.  Nevertheless, the wise ones will arm up and stock up in preparation of what is to come.

USMCA – Americans Sold Down The River ….. Again!

Once the Democrats got a hold of it in the U. S. House, they added a whole bunch of their favorite labor, socialist, environmental and one-world policies, turning it into a North American Union Trade Socialist and Environmental Agreement where national sovereignty and American law took a back seat to their world government agenda.

Slow Moving Socialist Avalanche Is Headed Right For You

You are skiing in the back country when all of a sudden you hear an ominous cracking and then a rushing sound like a hurricane.  You look up slope to the mountain above you and realize that half a mountain of snow is headed right at you at 80 to 100 miles per hour.   In an instant of horror and panic, your life flashes in front of you.

Is Today’s American Really Capable of Self-Government?

During this interim period as more and more individual freedoms are lost, the people can only hunker down and use what is left of their rights to keep the government at bay. Nevertheless, the end of this perilous journey can only end in final subjugation and enslavement of the people of the United States, unless and until the people decide for themselves that they are capable of self-government

The Vicious Domestic Enemy of Rural America

That's right, environmentalists and even those that live in urban areas, have been so brainwashed by the government through education and outright propaganda, that they actually believe that it is OK for government to regulate rural lands with draconian environmental protection ordinances...

Your Children Are Listening and Imitating What You Do

Parents send their children to government-run schools but don't constantly check and measure the quality of that education.  They don't peek into the process and determine if the process is a learning experience in truth, or one filled with propaganda and indoctrination.

The 13 Colonies Started Freedom. Now They’re Destroying It

The 13 colonies gave birth to freedom and they are now killing it because of big cities.  What has happened to the 13 colonies is now happening to other states like California, Oregon, Washington and Illinois. Big cities are and will be the death knell of freedom in America.

Get Progressive Educated Idiots Out of Education

This social crap that is being inflicted on productive Americans and the public education system by government legislation and rule making, at all levels, is why cities like Detroit (and states) are going, or have gone broke.  There is a direct correlation between government-funded, Democrat-sponsored, union-approved social policies and government bankruptcy.

Is The American Spirit Alive and Well This Thanksgiving?

Out of the Mouth of a Bernie Babe

Every socialist policy created by Democrats for votes dismisses, demeans and outright ignores the fundamental, natural, God-given rights of American citizens under our Constitutional Republic.  They ignore free choice and replace it with government mandates, government control and a crushing tax load on the American people.

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.

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.

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.

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.
