  • Hello A.H.!

I am so inundated with emails every day, hundreds literally – there’s no way I have time to read them all, even the ones (like Forward Observer for example) that I have paid for, and generally do nothing more than quickly skim.

But, I always read your posts. And whether or not I comment, although I have not agreed 100% with you on everything all the time, I have great respect for your opinions, your perspective, and your thought process. You are a kindred spirit, and I appreciate all the time and thought you put into your research, your reasoning, and your site.

Keep up the good work! Thank you for all you do! Hope to cross paths again one day, sometime when we’re up in the old mountain home. Don’t get up there much, have turned the house into a VRBO – much as had believed otherwise, the Spirit told me that here, where we are, is where we are needed and need to focus our energy – at least for now. So….we keep on keeping on !! God bless!! (jiatingzhufu)

Well son-of-a-gun! Nice to hear from you. I am so happy to hear the value you place on the website and my articles. I don’t fish for compliments but it is good to hear every once in a while that I am making a positive difference…keeps me motivated and smiling.

I will keep up the work as long as I am able and the Internet stays up and running…and the government & big tech censors don’t shut me down 🙂

I am going to go back to focusing more on prepper articles vs current event articles. We all see what is happening in the world, who is behind it, and where it is all headed. That is pretty dang crystal clear. And just as clear is our need to be ready for it. So I will do what I can to help folks be ready.

Hope you do well with the VRBO…and remember the door is always open.

Hey, anything in particular that you want me to write about?

Send me your thoughts, ideas, comments, questions, and concerns…

  • You are a “go to source” for me when I am evaluating a situation. I have many of your articles saved and refer to them often. I hate to bug you about Escape from Home but are you going to finish it? (Jack)

Thank you for the nice compliment! How are you saving the articles? Robin asked about that yesterday. Yes! I love that story and a bunch happens…lots of action. I have written most of the rough draft. But it takes a huge amount of time to write, edit, edit again…and edit again. About 6 – hours for each day’s entry. But it is my first love and my passion. For a couple years now I got caught up in writing about current events and warning what is happening, what is coming, and why. But, I have made a commitment to get back to the story…it is just about timing at this point. I will let everyone know when it starts back up.

I have some articles saved in PDF format already. You can download see the list and download them <click here to see the list>


Doug, you are a man of few words…and to the point I might add. And thank you for the kind compliment. I wish more people would have read the article, there is always time for to read it the first time…or read it again <click here to read the article> That article is timely, informative, cautioning, and appropriate for what we are seeing right now.


  • Thank you so much for taking the time to prepare these articles. I’m a relative newcomer to this blog, but very much appreciate it. I read through the full May sitrep suite. It must take a lot of time to prepare these articles but I find your content very well researched and thought-through. It helps me sanity check my own thought processes and conclusions. I work at an employee owned engineering consulting firm that is doing very well (power systems). I am halfway through my career. If things continue to go well I could see the employee ownership investment carrying me to a comfortable retirement. However, I’m considering taking a lower paying job at an electric coop where I can be more involved in the local communities and help influence local grid reliability. I’d convert the previous employer ownership investment to real-estate by paying off my mortgage. Normally this wouldn’t be a good idea since the mortgage is a low interest rate, but I ask myself how likely it is that my normal investments will actually be around in 20-25 years when I reach retirement. The probability of that outcome seems to be dwindling rapidly. People I talk to think this is just another storm we’ll pass through in a few years with all societal systems intact. However, I think ever more rapid deterioration until the Savior comes (with some refuge in Zion) better fits the scriptural model. I try to be prudent and recognize I don’t know the future (I keep some 401K investment for example) and I try to give the Lord opportunity to guide my decisions. However, your articles provide some nice guideposts to help me avoid the all-is-well (denial) or sky is falling (fear porn) extremes that would lead to inaction or rash action. I look forward to further sitreps. (Jon)

Hey, glad to have you newbie! Am I am thrilled you see value in the SitReps and yes, it takes considerable amount of time to produce each SitRep. I don’t think I have less than 8 hours in any SitRep and May’s SitRep took about 10 days of 6 hours each to write. Thank you again for the nice compliment. While I don’t fish for compliments…it is nice to hear positive feedback from all that hard work on those articles. And yes, I don’t write anything I haven’t thoroughly researched and/or have special “sources” of information.

You sound as if you are very balanced in your approach to…well, everything. I like you “hedging” when it comes to retirement. I also really appreciate your beliefs and view of the Savior.

And I gotta tell you…your stating that I help you avoid fear porn and denial is the best compliment I have had in a long time. So many websites peddle one or the other…mostly fear pron. Some sites actual promote both…weird. You can figure out what is best for you…your family, your congregation and your community. And maybe, just maybe I can be of some help along the way.

FBI Raid on Trump’s Home

  • Not only did your Let’s talk about the FBI…again” sound a bit choppy, it sounded like you heavily edited it. Then you didn’t comment on the FBI raid on Trumps home in Mar-logo. Why? (anonymous for a reason)

 

I figured someone would ask me about this whole raid thing. I hadn’t wanted to write about it because you guys already understand what is going on with this situation. But hey, you asked.

First off…Well, you busted me! Yes my original “Let’s talk about the FBI…again” was heavily changed after I had 3 people read it prior to publishing. And they all thought it would put a HUGE target on my back…one said my life would be in danger because of it. My wife said she would support me no matter what I did. I chose not to put others in danger but still get my point across with what I wrote. Yes, I think the FBI is that dangerous and ruthless.

As to “the FBI raid on Trumps home in Mar-logo”…let me ask you this, Are you surprised?

The FBI has been the hitmen for the radicals that are implementing authoritarianism in the USA for a very long time. At first the FBI kept it relatively concealed, in the last 30 years they have been in our faces (US citizens’) daring anyone to work against them, resist them, speak out against them, or try to reform them. Remember it was the FBI who was the lead federal agency in the attempted coup against President Trump to begin with. And they had plenty of help from the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the CIA.

And interestingly enough…the FBI is not authorized to even exist according to the Constitution.

Also, remember it was Merrick Garland (current Attorney General heading the DOJ) that Obama nominated for the Supreme Court…and the Republicans kept him out. So he has a huge personal grudge that he is using the DOJ to settle. And let us not forget…this is the same AG that didn’t do a thing to protect Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh after the assassination attempt by a liberal/progressive back in June of this year. His agenda is clear.

And yes, the raid on Trump’s home is the first in the history of the US…that should tell you a lot. And interestingly enough, Trump had been cooperating for months with the investigation turning over whatever was asked for as I understand it. Yet, they still carried out the raid.

It is ironic to hear all the support for this action…and it is exactly this kind of action that turns us further into a Banana Republic…an authoritarian state. So is this the new norm…raid all ex-president’s homes? If so, Clintons and Obamas may go to prison yet.

Here is what I find very telling…notice all the local law enforcement supporting the FBI in the raid?

So next time you hear someone talk about how loyal law enforcement is to the Constitution…think about this raid.

So, why the raid? Really, really simple:

  1. Those that want to impose authoritarianism hate Trump with a passion few of us can even begin to understand.
  2. In their minds they must keep him from running in 2024 and damage any other potential Republican candidate.
  3. This furthers the image of the FBI’s untouchable power. You can’t resist them, you can’t fight them, you can’t speak ill of them, and they can get anyone anytime.
  4. Further divide people in this country creating hate and chaos.

If Trump is guilty of something…bring him to justice. And for equality and justice…do the same to all former presidents…investigate and raid…then justice can be served. But do you think for a micro-second there is justice anymore…especially with the DOJ and FBI?

 

 

Bottom line…this was all about power and messaging that to everyone.

  • Hi I started reading your book “escape from home” and it ended kinda abruptly….is there more or is that it??? Hope all is well with you and your family. (Larry)

Yes, there is more…a lot more! I love that story and a bunch happens…lots of action. I have written most of the rough draft. But it takes a huge amount of time to write, edit, edit again…and edit again. About 6 – hours for each day’s entry. But it is my first love and my passion.

But, I have made a commitment to get back to the story…it is just about timing at this point. I will let everyone know when it starts back up.


  • I love your posts…..you seem to bring reality to issues most people either don’t want to talk about or face the signs of the times. My husband & I continue to seek & search for what is happening around us and prepare accordingly. Thank you for your knowledge and experiences. (Gloria)

You sound like a very level-headed prepper…THANK YOU! You are exactly the demographic (type of people) that I want coming to my website and reading what I have to say. Keep doing what you are doing…you are on the right path!!  And thank you for the kind compliment.


  • I believe some of your past articles are important enough to save for the long term, so I have copied them, converting them to a pdf if necessary and put them on an sd card which I gave to my children, most of whom have no interest in anything ‘prepper’. I expect them to change their mind when today isn’t like yesterday, then your information will be useful but the means to access it will be gone, perhaps forever. But, I look at the titles and categories your articles have and have no real way to know what else to capture. I wish you had a facility where I could easily download the most important and useful (in the long term, post disaster) articles. Even if here was a charge for them, reasonable I hope. Also, every now and then, I look for more installments of your story, and am sad when I don’t find any. I do understand that the situation in the world and the US has changed making the premise of the story somewhat dated, but I look hopefully regardless. I appreciate the depth of your analysis and the conclusions you draw from them, and hope I am following your advice adequately, but I wonder how much of this will be salient post disaster when my kids are actually willing to listen. Could the advice be a bit too late to make a substantive difference? Thanks (Robin)

Unfortunately many folks have their head in the sand…and some of them just because they see themselves as too busy. Can’t do to much for those that don’t want to see it. I think there is no one more deaf than those who don’t want to hear. You capturing those articles was a great idea. Some of my articles I already converted to PDF files click here for that list. I will try to do more conversion as time permits.

Always…always…be hopeful. Hope is linked to faith as well. No matter what I write about, no matter what my articles may sound like, no matter how gloomy the situation appears…I am still hopeful and have faith that everything will turn out fine. Sure, there will be bumps, bruises, and even tragedies along the way…but, individuals, families, congregations, and communities will be pockets of consitutionalists who love rights, freedoms, and liberties…and who also love God…and will standup for what they believe in. Paradise is the best word I can think of to describe those places.

Any quality information is always right at any time…and it will always make a difference.

Feedback & Comments : Russian – Ukrainian War #2

AH Trimble Feedback and CommentsIn reference to SitRep – 2/24/2022 : War!

And you should probably read Feedback & Comments : Russian – Ukrainian War #1

  • You’ve warned many times of “watch the left hand”, so what do you see this time?

For one…In the middle of the potential start of World War III Joe Biden nominates an extremely radical leftist to the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS)… Ketanji Brown Jackson. Jackson is nothing short of a political hack who does not believe in the fundamental foundations of the Constitution. And Joe Biden picked the perfect time to nominate her…everyone else is focused on and worried about what is happening in Ukraine by the US’s #1 enemy…Russia. Perfect distraction, eh?

Some interesting facts on Ketanji Brown Jackson:

    • Parents attended segregated (all black) colleges.
    • She worked for the law firm of Goodwin Procter, one of the largest international/global law firms in the world.
    • She was a law clerk for very liberal/progressive US District Judge Patti B. Saris.
    • She was a law clerk for Stephen Breyer associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, one of the most liberal/progressive judges SCOTUS has ever seen.
    • She was part of the Marxist Obama Administration, United States Sentencing Commission
    • Compilation of opinions regarding her politics: labor friendly, liberal, progressive, good Democrat, liberal ideologue, passionate & bias liberal activist, anti-religious.
    • She is endorsed by, among other far-left groups, infanticide endorsing Planned Parenthood, and the radical extremist left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center.
    • She opposes First Amendment right of free speech for people saying vocal or silent prayers outside of abortion clinics.
    • She is very radically in favor of infanticide (pro-abortion), including partial-birth abortion (killing of babies as they are being born, primarily through dismemberment).

And Biden somehow knew to wait for the right moment before making her nomination announcement.

  • Russia has but its nuclear forces on high alert, will Russia use his nukes?

Very possibly. Once the allies begin moving military supplies into Ukraine there are only 3 options to do so; air, ground, or sea port. The airspace above Ukraine is closed due to being controlled by Russia air assets. For any country, other than Russia, to try and fly into that airspace would be idiocy. It would lay the groundwork for a direct confrontation of militaries. It would be both provocative and pure stupidity. So that leaves a ground or sea port option.

A sea port attempt would likely end up in an intervention by Russia navy assets and a very high likelihood of violent confrontation…and that could easily escalate quickly. That leaves a ground based option. The two most likely countries would be Poland or Romania through which aid would flow, both are NATO countries. Should Putin want to deny entry of those weapons, especially Stinger & Javelin missiles, he might well strike any arms convoys close to or within their borders. Should he do that, then NATO must strike back based on Article 5.

Given that scenario I could see Putin escalating it very quickly if he was losing the engagement. Should that occur a tactical nuclear strike would be within his wheelhouse. He might think that no nuclear response would be forthcoming. And, I believe he would be right. I can’t imagine any NATO country believing a nuclear response would be a responsible option. However, should a nuclear response occur, or a false flag nuclear “response” by Russia…then I see a rapid escalation…and nukes potentially coming into play.

Bottom line…In my lifetime we haven’t been this close to nuclear war since the Cuban Missile Crisis.

  • What more do you want to say? You’ve hinted at “more”, what is it?

I like to write only those things that I can verify and have sourced well. I have written about “gut feelings” before but not very often. This is one of those times I have a gut feeling based on some random dots that I see, they are:

    • Joe Biden was vice-president to Obama when Obama passed on a “conspiracy” message to Putin via Russian President Medvedev in March of 2012 where Obama stated he would be more cooperative with Putin after Obama was reelected.
    • Joe Biden was vice-president when Obama allowed Russia to invade Ukraine in 2014 and take the Ukrainian state of Crimea away from Ukraine.
    • Joe Biden was one of the chief architects of the Iranian Deal back in 2015. That deal allowed Iran to have a timetable and all the means to develop nuclear weapons. And it included a plane load of cash from the USA to Iran that was estimated to be in the billions of dollars…IN CASH! Trump stopped the remainder of the deal and withdrew the US’s support. Just about a week ago Biden voiced his support for now releasing over $100billion in frozen Iranian assets, allowing Iran to sell oil on the open markets, and a return to the 2015 deal that allows Iran to develop nuclear weapons.
    • Hillary Clinton was also instrumental in the 2015 Iranian deal. Hillary Clinton had/has close ties to Russia, even conspiring to use Russian supplied fake/false information to overthrow President Trump.
    • Iran has been, and is, a close ally of Russia.
    • Joe Biden ordered the US Department of Justice to drop its investigation into Chinese spying and intellectual property theft.
    • China is a close ally of Russia.
    • Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son, has made millions of dollars from the Chinese government since Joe Biden first served as vice-president to Obama.
    • While Joe Biden was vice-president to Obama, Joe Biden’s son Hunter, received over $3.5million from a Russian billionaire with close ties to Putin.
    • Prior to Joe Biden being elected president the USA was energy independent.
    • The year Joe Biden was sworn in as president he quickly made executive decisions to make USA an energy dependent country…subject to oil suppliers such as OPEC and Russia. Oil imports from Russia went up about 35% under Joe Biden’s presidency so far.
    • As oil & gas prices increase due to the Russian-Ukraine War benefiting Iran and Russia…and hurting US consumers.
    • Joe Biden was well aware of Putin’s buildup of Russian forces and that Putin was going to order an invasion of Ukraine during or closely following the Winter Olympics in China. Biden was aware of this information since early 2021. Yet, despite knowing all of this, Biden did not send the critical military aid the Ukraine needed to defend itself against Russia, namely Stinger and Javelin missiles.
    • Joe Biden stopped direct sanctions against Putin when they were recommended by US experts (after Russia invaded Ukraine). The direct sanctions against Putin were only imposed when European leaders did so, then Biden was forced to follow them.

Something stinks in all of this…something really, really bad! My gut tells me that these dots are all connected and there even more major dots that I am not seeing…but I know they are there.

Bottom line…Biden, and maybe the US government, are somehow neck deep in this…and it ain’t on the side of right! And it isn’t going to end up well for Ukraine…or for US citizens. And yes, I think this is a major step towards bringing down the USA, probably the whole world, to maybe collapse levels. I am just not 100% sure…but my “gut” is seldom wrong. My timing may suck and I may not have the details right each time…but something tells me this time it is going to be bad (long-term and/or medium-term and undoubtedly short-term). And it is planned, or assisted by, Biden and his friends (a.k.a. co-conspirators).

Plan & prepare accordingly.

Feedback & Comments : Russian – Ukrainian War #1

AH Trimble Feedback and CommentsIn reference to SitRep – 2/24/2022 : War!

  • Excellent observations on current world event! You nailed the Russian/Ukraine situation. What do you see as the #1 threat to citizens of the US?

Well, this may surprise you…I see the #1 threat to the average US citizen out of all of the possible options as being the US government.

Remember one of the radical authoritarians’ mantras…“never let a crisis go to waste”. Our federal government and the ruling class are already planning on how to use this crisis to further their agenda. And that agenda is not one to strengthen the Republic or the Constitution.

Remember, they were wildly successful with the COVID pandemic.Why wouldn’t they leverage the war situation between Russia & Ukraine? Actually, a strong case could already be made…the price of oil & gas is going up. And that is a top priority of the radical extremists…price oil & gas out of the range of average Americans.

  • How can Putin be defeated? Your article was really well put. I do think you wanted to say more but didn’t for some reason.

Putin can only be defeated by his own people. It’s too late for a military solution, there is no military, or combination of militaries, that can defeat Putin…he is too committed…more committed than anyone else.

His people, their riots and such, can stop him, if not actually overthrow him. But the cost would be high to Russians.

And we could have helped the Ukraine stop the Russian invasion in its tracks and decimate them if we had done two things:

  1. Given Ukraine 1,000 new generation Stinger missiles. Cost: $38,000 each, total $38million. No Russian fixed-wing or rotary-wing aircraft would have been safe. The $ cost and loss of aircraft would not be acceptable to the Russian government.
  2. Given Ukraine 1,000 new generation Javelin missiles. Cost: $178,000 each, total $178million. No Russian vehicle, including tanks, would have been safe. The large loss of life would not have been acceptable to the Russian people.

NOTE #1: In 2018 the USA sold 150 Javelin missiles to Ukraine…about 850 missiles short of what they needed, and Ukraine didn’t and doesn’t have that kind of money to spend buying the missiles they need. The US sent a mere handful more in late January 2022. Too little, too late.

NOTE #2: The US sent a mere handful of Singer missiles in late January 2022. Again, too little, too late.

Had the US sent those number of missiles and associated training to Ukraine starting in 2012 – 2013 (covering 3 US presidencies) Russia might well have been deterred from invading Ukraine in 2014 or 2022. But we didn’t…and now we can easily see how we have facilitated this horrible situation where Russia becomes stronger, richer, more emboldened, and with no end in sight.

So, were we (3 US Presidents & Congresses) just blindly incompetent not helping Ukraine when we could have? Or, was there something else in play?

Feedback & Comments : the FBI & CIA

AH Trimble Feedback and Comments

  • You wrote about the CIA in regards to Afghanistan, isn’t there bigger problems with the CIA? And you’ve written about the FBI before. What about the FBI and CIA acting as a single agency?

Well, the CIA is an interesting beast…literally, a beast in biblical terms. The CIA is a super-secret (albeit well-known) black ops organization that murders at will, overthrows sovereign nations, traffics extensively in illegal drugs, illegal arms traffickers, collaborates with known terrorist groups, tortures foreign and US citizens…to name just a few of their activities conducted in the name of the United Stated of America.

Oliver North…yes, even the Colonel Oliver North that worked for the National Security Council under President Reagan. He was finally convicted of multiple felonies for his operations through/with the CIA. Meaning, the military works closely with and often for the CIA. But, you didn’t even ask about the CIA-military connection did you? Sorry.

So, on to the FBI…the short answer is yes. FBI agents, when needed, “become” CIA operatives.

The New York Times (NYT) wrote an excellent fact-based article back in November on the unholy alliance between the FBI & CIA. The large and quite effective public relations team at the FBI pumps out excellent propaganda portraying the FBI with a strong moral compass, “clean” agents, and love of all things Constitutional. Well, propaganda it is, truth it is not.

It is well-known that the CIA runs an extensive network of black sites where torture is a common occurrence. There are well documented examples of these, many with congressional testimony to back the truth. There’s even a great docu-drama about it. The torture committed at the behest of the CIA by its agents and operatives is as vile as human behavior can be, unworthy of anyone who calls themselves a human…and not conducive to a Constitutional Republic. But, the FBI has always maintained that their agents have never participated in those tortures. And technically they are right.

Interesting, albeit disgusting, evidence came to light during the pretrial phase of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. In that evidence was key information that almost went unnoticed. First let me mention that the truth of an extensive black site prison network was revealed. Then the extent of the torture was revealed. Those were bombshells to begin with…although already widely speculated. But buried even deeper was a very interesting tidbit of information that blows up the FBI image even more…and exposes the dark and evil truth of the FBI.

To avoid “FBI agents” participating in the torture the FBI/CIA came up with a trick that only the US government would think of…the FBI agents temporarily but officially become CIA agents. The US government had a legal team draw-up a legal document that enabled the FBI agents to be assigned to the CIA and formally become CIA agents. Thus, technically the FBI agents didn’t participate in the torture because they were CIA agents at the time they were there torturing. But, they were the same people working for the same US government.

So two extremely important pieces of information were verified in that release of information regarding the FBI agents conducting torture; 1) torture did take place, 2) the FBI had to use a legal scheme to try and avoid the vile stench of their behavior. Yes, meaning that they had to protect their vaunted morally clean image…the lie that it is.

In my opinion…there isn’t a shred of difference between the CIA and the FBI. Well, other than the FBI has a great public relations team…whereas the CIA doesn’t give a damn about what US citizens think about them.

More examples of CIA operations:

  1. Guatemala – 1954: Guatemala had been suffering under a brutal -US-back dictatorship (Jorge Ubico) for decades, the people finally revolted and overthrew the dictator. Ubico was on the payroll of the United Fruit Company. Don’t recognize that company? Well, they became Chiquita Brands International under Carl Henry Lindner Jr.,. Linder (died in 2011) was one of the world’s richest families and a huge donor to Republicans…with close ties to the Bush family. GHW Bush was a Director of the CIA before becoming Vice President, then President. In 1954, the CIA launched the code-named Operation PBSUCCESS and overthrew the sovereign country of Guatemala. After the coup Guatemala suffered three decades of brutal repression in which as many as 200,000 people died, many of them campesinos killed by security forces. But fruit flowed freely to the US during that time.
  2. Haiti – 1959: The CIA worked with Hattian President Francois Duvalier to create a secret police force that terrorized Haiti citizens for decades using brutal torture and death.
  3. Brazil – 1964: The CIA, at the request of the State Department, provided arms and covert operatives to overthrow their government.
  4. Uruguay – 1969: Upon the request and urging of Nelson Rockefeller, President Nixon ordered the CIA in. Dan Mitrione, the CIA lead agent, was the man who taught the police in Uruguay how to effectively torture people. Mitrione made torture routine, applying in his words, “the precise pain, in the precise place, in the precise amount, for the desired effect.”

The list goes on and on; Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, El Salvador, Panama, and Peru. Time and time again the CIA conducted operations in those countries murdering, torturing, overthrowing sovereign governments, bombings…and never once being held accountable for what they did. And that is just some of the examples in South and Central America.

And there are plenty of cases where the FBI was involved. Oh wait…only CIA operatives…yeah, who had worked for the FBI previously and then later magically went back to work for the FBI.

So seriously think about this single concept…Put in your mind our Founding Fathers, their principles, what they fought against, the documents they wrote, the amazing Bill of Rights, their sacrifices, and their commitment to freedom, liberties, and rights. Now, what do you think those same Founding Fathers would feel about the CIA, the FBI and all of those agencies’ vile, disgusting, immoral, illegal torturing, murdering, assignations, running “black sites” to avoid the Constitution, and overthrowing sovereign governments?

Yeah, it gets real clear to me! And let’s me know exactly how far we have fallen as a people, as a country…and how far down the path to a brutal authoritarian state our government has gone.

Feedback & Comments : Afghanistan…a war lost!

AH Trimble Feedback and CommentsIn reference to yesterday’s article Afghanistan…a war lost!

  • Humm, I wonder why I have/had the same thoughts you have expressed. I have never served in the military, so I don’t understand the culture. That said I felt the whole debacle was wrong on so many levels that I can’t even express my thoughts. I don’t have to have a military background to know what we saw was pure unadulterated evil. JackG

 

Jack,

The military is a very strange entity. It is a three-sided body; 1) there is the top leadership (i.e. the Pentagon, large regional commands, etc.), they are pure politics and business, they are out of touch with the boots on the ground and don’t put much compassion into them, 2) there is local unit leadership which is purely dependent on the individual leader being anything from a jerk to a great leader, 3) individual troopers (the individual and the guy next to them in the foxhole). The latter category can be amazing, especially when bonds are formed under fire…brothers for life.

At the top, #1 category, they care only for themselves and their next advancement. To them the troops are nothing more than numbers. They have lost their connection with what it is like in the field. They are politicians in every sense of the word and behave like it. They will stab each other in the back and then throw them under the bus…then back it up…then sleep well that night. Military folks working in the Pentagon are also thinking about lining up a sweet gig post-retirement…meaning the military-industrial complex…and they make military related decisions accordingly.

Local leadership, #2 category, is a huge variable. The lower level officers can be idiots or very competent. Once you go above O-3 they are primarily thinking promotion and advancement…and make decisions accordingly. Once they hit O-5 & O-6 they are thinking only about making it to General or Admiral so they concentrate only on what is good for their career. You do find some very good officers from time to time who have their priorities right and care about the folks under them…but they are a rare commodity.

The guy next to you and yourself, #3 category, can be amazing! You can form friendships for life…truly brothers, or closer. Yes, there are jerks here as well, but they can have less of an impact on you and can be dealt with a little easier.

But the military, as an institution, has only one thought…preserve the military…at all costs. The military sees itself as above citizens, and certainly better than and above any and all politicians. As an institution the military has a long history of abusing US citizens, even extreme violence. The military will, at all costs, hide any of its behavior that it deems potentially embarrassing. Meaning simply, it will attempt to cove-up anything it sees fit.

The US military, as an institution, claims well over 50% of the US federal government budget. And when you are talking that much money…you are talking bias and outright corruption. And since the US military has 90+% of the brute force power in the United States…they see themselves as “all powerful” with only serfs beneath them according to many.

In any possible aspect the US military has most of the money and almost all of the brute power in the United States. And, it will do virtually anything to maintain both their money and power.

And as a side note…they have a wonderful and powerful public relations team…leading to very positive image by in large. Unfortunately, their history of abusing US citizens, including their own veterans, shows an different picture.

OK, all that being said…the US military is 1/2 of the military-industrial complex. Let’s get perspective here…the US military spends as much as the next nine countries’ militaries combined. The US Department of Defense spent just under a trillion dollars in 2020, that was regular budget items and black/dark operation as well.

So in the military-industrial complex relationship, the military has the money, the industrial wants it. It is a huge business, lots of lobbyists, plenty of graft, more than a little corruption…and what I refer to as “incest”. Many of the top folks in the industrial side of the relationship come from the military, and all of those companies need support from the decision makers in the military. So, the industrial side buys favorable decisions from the military (purchase decisions) by the promise of high paying jobs to the decision making military folks upon retirement. It’s ugly…but the result of the power & money equation has been going on since the Civil War.

Are you getting the picture yet?

The military is going to protect itself. It does that by keep the politicians as happy as they can, protecting Washington with their brute force, lining their own pockets, keeping a positive public profile in-place, and covering up anything that jeopardizes their power/money relationships.

Now, don’t get me wrong…there are a whole lot of individual military personnel that love the country and our citizens…and will give their life for them. However, that is not an institutional view. As an institution…the US military is nothing but “big business” with self-interests.

While in the US military no one, no one at all, has to obey an unlawful order. But they do. Look at all the war crimes that were revealed by Brad Manning. He exposed hundreds, if not thousands, of war crimes by US military personnel…which obeyed unlawful orders.

Example: In 2007 a US helicopter gunship, Crazyhorse 18, gunned down a Reuters news crew claiming their camera was a RPG weapon. Then when a father and his two young children tried to take some of the injured to a hospital the gunship killed the father and his children. They even talked openly of the children being with their father…and didn’t care a bit. Gunned down two young children!!! In 2010 the same Crazyhorse 18 had two Iraqis surrender to them while on a mission. A US military lawyer heard the chatter and ordered the crew to kill the men saying they couldn’t surrender to a helicopter. The Crazyhorse 18 crew outright murdered the two men…who tried to surrender. War crimes if there ever was one…two…three! And no one, not a single person, was ever held accountable for all those deaths…including of the children. Inexcusable!! Oh, but Brad Manning who revealed the war crimes…he was arrested, tried, convicted, went to prison, was tortured, and ended up a mental case.

Yet, another way to think about it…Why the war in Iraq? The US military knew that Bush and his administration were lying about the weapons of mass destruction. But, the military had no problems invading a sovereign country and overthrowing their government…and virtually bombing them back to the Stone Age and killing hundreds of thousands of Iraqis in the process. By international standards, that the US signed onto, there were enough war crimes to more than go around to convict plenty of US military folks…especially the top brass.

Another way to think about it…you hear about all the troops who have PTSD. Why do you think that is? If you ever get them to talk about what they went through you would probably throw-up and not sleep well for the rest of your life.

My opinion…whatever the intentional plan was by the US government in Afghanistan, the US military was involved in it up to their eyeballs and had no problem executing their part of it, ignoring the war crime aspect, and hiding the CIA’s role in it.

And now…I think you inadvertently raised a salient point. If lots of Iraqis and lots of Afghans died during the war, and if lots of US military folks died during the war, that is pretty ugly. And why would we be involved in all of that just to lose both wars?

Now, before you try to answer that question, turn it around and test it…Who would want those two wars and benefit from them?

There, now answer either one of those two questions if you want.

You have been following me long enough to know how I go about those answers. I ask myself; 1) who gains power from it?, 2) who gains money from it?

Becomes pretty easy to answer now, eh?


Just for thought…

Just for more thought…

AH Trimble Feedback and CommentsIn response to “Extreme Danger !” I have a couple comments of note.

Burble writes…

Fighting “misinformation” with lies, and silencing any whose opinion does not match the government’s narrative, including [including opposing opinions from] Nobel prize winning scientists. It is clear they have no interest in actual truth, but what is truly sad is that so many do not even attempt to see beyond the thin veneer of their lies, much to their [own] peril I’m afraid.


Also in response to “Extreme Danger !” Nathan writes…

Why Biden has no worries. First, white conservatives are cowards. A small but determined criminal element [radical left] was able to destroy dozens of cities with no consequences. Feds stated no one would be punished, not even for attacking and burning federal buildings. Now look how they handled Trump supporters. Hundreds locked up with tens of thousands soon to be arrested.  [Second] Military is now completely owned by left. They will follow orders and will be used to crush whites once Biden feels confident to begin such ops. Sadly, the biggest reason feds can now do as they please is regular law enforcement. Local and state police followed any and all orders concerning mask mandate, a major violation of the Bill of Rights if ever there was one.

Make no mistake, police like their pay and perks and if ordered will happily turn their guns on conservatives.

What will soon happen here will make what went on in Nazi Germany seem mild in comparison. Democrats are already building the camps needed to house conservatives, gun owners, and Christians. To all you smart asses that say where are the camps? They already exist. They are called sports stadiums and underground parking complexes. A few guard towers and concertina wire and presto, instant camps. There are also huge amounts of cleared land on US military bases that can quickly be converted. Eglin Air Force Base in Florida and Ft Stewart Army Base in Georgia have thousands of acres easily convertible to such facilities. Remember Democrats already have experience with how to move and imprison huge segments of population. Ask the Japanese on the West Coast how quickly Democrats were able to move and imprison hundreds of thousands of loyal Japanese Americans during WW2. Also, further back, see how they wiped out millions of American Indians. The US military figured heavily in both these historic episodes.

Right now, your only hope to save yourself and your families is to form armed militias. Training needs to start right now. Once military gets their orders they will quickly move to round up any and all people Democrats label as enemies of the state. The Constitution is dead and gone.


I respond…

OK, first things first…Yes, some conservatives are cowards but not all…politically all of them on the federal level seem to be cowards or ineffectual for the most part. I am a Civil Society Libertarian so I oppose some of the fundamental planks of the Conservative beliefs and agenda.

“Whites” are already being crush by the radical CRT gang. And NO! that is not racism for you with shrunken or non-existent brains. That is a statement of fact and opinion, so don’t play your stupid racist games with me.

And I agree with Nathan on the LEO thing. Although, truth be told, once again not all LEOs or LEO agencies have gone to the dark side…but many have. The proof? Thousands of reports and videos showing them behaving inappropriately and illegally. That’s why we have to support our Constitution loving Peace Officers!!!

Interestingly enough…”camps”…Nathan makes a great point…as I have pointed out before. While there are no official or operational FEMA camps…they can be set up just about anywhere in a matter of a couple of days. And Nathan makes a sound case of where they could be located. And he is spot-on about the US Federal Government having previously established camps. They did it to the Native Americans in HUGE numbers, in World War I, and again in large numbers during World War II. The federal government saw a threat in the form of people…so they simply put them in prison camps. And in the case of Native Americans…before they imprisoned them, they slaughtered them in huge numbers. As for you that still doubt…review Kent State not that many years ago. The US Army has some very dark patches against US citizens in their history.

Now, let’s touch on a subject that is a bit raw for me…”your only hope to save yourself and your families is to form armed militias.

I have been giving advice on this subject for a long time and I can sum it up in one word, “DON’T!”

And, why? Because of timing. Right now all of the federal gestapo law enforcement agencies are looking rather vigorously at right-wing militias…and have labeled them domestic terrorists. And by doing so all of the federal agencies and the military can deal with you completely outside of any Constitutional rights and completely outside of our judicial system. So don’t form, join, or even discuss forming militias.

But, “your only hope to save yourself and your families” is 100% spot on, exactly right, and incredibly brilliant. I have laid out over and over again how to do this…then expand it to your neighborhood, your congregation, and your community.

Now, if you want to protect yourself and family make sure you can do so…by fighting the threat/risk of violence <click here to get started> and then read my article “Time for a Step in an Action Plan!!” <click here to read>.

If you want some awesome training to organize to respond to any emergency, disaster, or grid-down you can always read this series of articles <click here to read> And of course read this short but invaluable book “The Art of War”.

Finally, “The Constitution is dead and gone.”  Yes, as far as the US Federal Government is concerned…the Constitution is dead. Federal law enforcement agencies are especially grateful for that. And honestly, all levels of government now ignore the Constitution in regards to right, freedoms, and liberties as it was originally intended by our Founding Fathers. Government loves its power and its ability to take our money…as their actions continue to prove.

However, the Constitution is still alive and well in the hearts of many. There are millions of people out there who have studied and understand the principles of the Constitution and know that it was designed to severely limit government power and ensure citizens of rights, freedoms, and liberties. Unfortunately for the last 120+ years have allowed government to take our rights, freedoms, and liberties one bite at a time…along with our money.

So please, keep the Constitution alive! Learn it, continually study it, and one day we will be able to restore it. Understand that our Founding Fathers wanted a small, restricted, and limited government…NOT the oppressive monstrosity we have today.

Thank you Nathan for raising so many good points and getting us to think.
