Please read Jim’s comment/reply!

Jim laid out a comment/reply that is based on fact and history of just how far leftists/Communists/Socialists/Marxists are willing to go…and have.

It is well worth your time to read his words…then ponder…pray…prepare.

We have entered an unprecedented time in US history…a true “Dark Ages”…and it is getting worse by the day….and it will get much, much worse. Never before in the history of the USA have such rapid radical and violent extremists had this much power and control.

FAH Trimble Feedback and Commentsfrom Michael in response to our discussions lately.

 

 


Very good discussion – I always appreciate your attitude on things. I think at this point minor semantics on what happened on 1/6 are irrelevant – the left got what they wanted and will repeat it ad infinitum, and even if the facts eventually show something different, it won’t matter because the narrative has already been written.

Yup!

I woke up this morning with an interesting though (completely unrelated, but related at the same time) that for the “right”, the military industrial complex was their sugar daddy. For the “left”, it’s Big Pharma/MSM/Big Tech that is theirs. Follow the money. It’s all about money and power. Satan’s goal – everyone must be controlled.

Amen! I’ve been preaching about “money & power” for years…it is destroying individuals, families, communities, and been doing a number on our country since “lobbyists” came about back in the mid-1800’s. Nothing makes money for the ruling class like a good war. Just look at what Bush/Obama/Trump did to us over the last nearly two decades.

Another non sequitur – you made a point the other day that won’t leave my mind. You said “you must work even harder to clarify the principles in which you believe, stand firm in those principles no matter what, and prepare for everything that is coming.” That phrase has been stuck, playing over and over in my mind, and making me really ask questions about myself and my views. I knew where I stood before, that’s not at issue. But when the light of day is shone upon my values, do they withstand the pressure that will inevitably be placed on me over them? Will I be willing to sacrifice my job? My career? My home? I have asked those questions before but suddenly they have become more than simply an exercise in “what if”. They have become reality.

You got it! And I can well imagine the answers to your questions…simply by the way you stated the issue and what it means to you. You’ll be fine my friend! Remember the last line of the Declaration of Independence…

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”

I also loved your last line in that same post “I beg you to get ready, to be prepared, to be sane and grounded in reality, avoid idols, avoid worshiping man, avoid politics as usual, grasp the iron rod of good…and don’t let go!” The fact that you mentioned idols is interesting because I have done a little study on idols in our modern day. Most people would think idols being movie stars, sports heros, etc and while true, that is a myopic view. It’s much much much more than that. It’s sports in general (ie what happens if you can’t watch your team play this week or tonight?), or having to watch another movie, or play that video game. All idols of our modern day. How about a new car? Idol for most people. So many of our neighbors are putting in swimming pools. I’m not talking one or two – like 7 just on our street alone! To me, that is idol worship – have to be as good as your neighbors or better.

I’m trying really hard to look at each piece of information I receive from the light of truth. Not everything can be discerned right away. But the one thing that stands out is that there is NO way to know truth from falsehood unless we are grounded spiritually and know how to listen to the Spirit or our conscience. So many people out there have chosen to ignore their inner whisperings in favor of power, money, influence, personal desires, you name it. And so here we have a situation where knowing how to listen even closer to that is more important than ever.

Sorry for the spewing of train of thought. I just want to reiterate – keep writing. Keep publishing. And I’ll keep reading.

Thank you so much!  Hearing from you really perked up my day…and makes me keep this site alive and me writing. It means more than what you might imagine. Thank you again…I love hearing from folks!

AH Trimble Feedback and CommentsGreat response/reply from Jason regarding my posting of his “feedback” yesterday. I love it when folks reply/respond and then we can discuss issues a little more. It is folks like Jason and his willingness to talk and listen that will make those of us who live in reality be able to stand up to what is coming.

I woke up being prompted to read my email right away. I read Jason’s email and it simply made a great start to my day! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.


What I mean about the FBI is that they are involved, meaning that they are not just hoping for armed citizens, they may have even written the flyer to instigate it. Or it was created by the left to finally destroy the right, which it would do if the right is so ignorant to fall for this ploy.

I don’t doubt either of your proposals…either or both could be true. I remember back to when the FBI wrote a horrible anonymous letter to Martin Luther King, Jr trying to convince him to kill himself. Of course he didn’t fall for it. And it wasn’t too long after that he was assassinated.

And Jason, now you see why for a very long time I have been telling folks, pleading with them, to not attend these kinds of events. You never know what they can turn into…and they can have really bad outcomes.

I certainly do not agree w everything Trump did either. There are some thoughts that Trump is “playing chess” & many moves ahead of the left, I am doubtful that the following is true but there are thoughts that he will have many arrests from the Swamp. That he has planned to get back into office after all of the arrests, including Biden/Harris, etc, and that the left will be so upset which is why he has called in the troops in advance to stop the riots that will occur from them, but he got the left to believe that this is only to prevent the far right from their riots instead.

It sounds like a QAnon message…pure fantasy…all of it a complete fraud. Sorry, I don’t believe a word of it. The swamp was hardly drained during Trump’s 4 years. Actually, none of even the swamps 3rd tier players were touched, let alone any leaders. No, there is no widespread draining of the swamp now by Trump or any time soon by anyone. Trump is gone, Biden/Harris and the radical authoritarians will now rule over us. At least for a time.

The way you wrote to me was certainly more kind than mine to you, I thank you for that. I know you have said to be careful of conspiracies, but to be honest there is so much info out there that it is hard to know what is true and what is not. In the end it is much better to be unified & kind to others than fall for all the divisiveness that exists. So I apologize for my lack of kindness, and continue to appreciate your thoughts.

The way you wrote was fine, nothing wrong, your were expressing yourself. Now, I could show you some stuff people (self proclaimed Christians) have said to me that would curl your toes and you might lose faith in humanity. Your feedback/comments…well, no offense taken at all by anything you said. It was like we were having a frank discussion face-to-face. Please, no need to apologize…none at all.

There is too much information out there…WAY to much. And what I mean by that…a whole lot of it is purely made up, some is disinformation from political and governmental (foreign & domestic) sources, and then there are folks who are trying to create their own fantasy world of what they want things to be. Unfortunately we all have to sift through what we see and hear and read…then decide for ourselves what to believe…then live our lives accordingly.

In the end it is much better to be unified & kind to others than fall for all the divisiveness that exists.

Amen! Amen! and Amen!  The only way evil will be defeated is our being unified as disciples of Christ and practicing His teachings.

AH Trimble Feedback and Comments

 

Feedback from Jason concerning my post this morning FAQ – 1/14/2021


I’m going to disagree with you on several of your points because some of them are coming from your own personal biases. Now not to get off on the wrong foot I’ve always enjoyed the things that you have written, however it is very apparent right now that you’re seemingly very opposed to Trump and the things that he has done.

I am not opposed to Trump for heaven’s sake! I thought I made that pretty dang clear in my post. I disagree and object to some of his actions. I don’t buy into everything he does…I am not a Trump sycophant.

So Point number one I agree with that having armored vehicles and police and Military presence of police is a scary thing and should not be here in the United States. I wonder if it is what the left was hoping for, but that Trump was planning in advance anyway? I know this goes into conspiracy theories and may not have any accuracy at all.

Of course that is what the left was hoping for…you are absolutely right. It plays right into their game plan of turning us even further to an authoritarian regime. I am not sure what you mean by “…Trump was planning in advance anyway…” Why would Trump plan to have the military called out? …to do what? I would like to hear your thoughts on that one.

Your second point I completely agree with as there’s a huge convergence between media big Tech government censorship and other things that are completely on the Marxist Trail. They are scary dangerous and completely destroying the Republic that we have had to the point where it’s almost gone.

YES!!!   Spot on!

Point number three I think that the media has basically made fools out of everybody over this one about the radical right and those that stormed the capital first the timeline doesn’t fit has Trump was still speaking when certain people decided to storm the capitol. I wonder and think that many of them were Trump supporters and radical rights and that side of things and tired and frustrated and fed up with everything. I sympathize with their feelings I do not sympathize with the methods that they chose to use to show their frustration anger at cetera they really hurt the conservative movement. However then you talk about the 50 state capitals armed event you know armed citizens everything about that feels like it is not coming from the radical right. It looks and sounds and feels like it is actually a ploy to get people out to the Capitals in arms Etc whoever is in charge of it knows that generally speaking it is vying for the conservatives opportunity to get together. However most of the time when there’s an organizational event like this planned it always says who the support is of it unless it’s antifa or leftist side of things there is no information as to which group it is that’s gathering this these 50 state capital armed citizens to Raleigh.

Well, there is ample evidence that the Boogaloo Movement is behind some of those rallies, evidence that the Proud Boys are behind some of them. Solid evidence that bona fide Trump supporters behind some of them. Whispers that some White Supremacists behind a couple.  I don’t know who is behind all of them and I have no sure idea who is behind the Raleigh rally.

“I sympathize with their feelings I do not sympathize with the methods…”

Amen brother…but I sympathize with only some of their feelings since I am not aware of ALL of their feelings. It appears some  of their feelings involved criminals acts being appropriate…and that is not agreeable to me.

It has the look and feel of red and yellow you know it’s very communistic in it’s in the way the banner is set up. I think it is a complete farce in fact I would even call it a false flag possibly from the FBI or from the far left if this is not something that the right put together.

I have no doubt in my mind that the FBI is encouraging the events to take place. It makes it very easy for them to use the event to strengthen their anti-American, anti-Constitutional position of supporting the shift to an authoritarian regime. If they don’t strike at them then and there…they have all the intel to strike them later.

Another point you make is that the Trump impeachment doesn’t affect anybody and that’s simply not true. A trump impeachment if it goes through would prevent Trump from running again oh, I’m not saying that people would vote for him again in 2024 but an impeachment prevent anybody from voting for him in 2024 because he would not be able to run if that was the plan. It also takes away a huge portion of time and taxpayer money and is just simply ludicrous to think that it’s even an appropriate thing to do based on the fact that somebody is saying that Trump incited the violence and the Sedition etcetera Etc, while the left did nothing except for praise the violence and the mostly peaceful protests and quote during the summer and fall and in fact were say saying things that were inciting violence and saying things like hang Mike Pence or other things throughout the entire summer and fall go to the capital and then get their heads, or other things.

Well, I guess that this is where we have a minor disagreement. First off, Trump has already been impeached, it happened yesterday, 1/13. Trump’s impeachment DOESN’T keep him from running again. Now, if he is convicted in the Senate…that might. It would take a specific baring of future office as part of the penalty phase, which is not a given.

I don’t give a crap about them spending the money on impeachment. They are going to spend the time and money on something…and it will ALL be wasteful! So let them have at it.

And I never said it was appropriate. I think it is stupid as hell, vindictive, petty, and perfectly in-line with the insanity of the left. But, it is their legal right…let them do it they so wish as long as it is legal. Legal doesn’t mean moral or ethical.

It is complete doublespeak and hypocrisies and very Orwellian. Anybody who has read 1984 knows that we are experiencing everything that was going on for 1984 with a doublespeak and all the lies and the hypocrisies and the disinformation Etc.

Bingo!!!! Why heck do you think I have been encouraging people to read 1984…and Brave New World?

And finally, of course I have bias…it is called opinion…and I’ve been sharing that since the inception of the website. And you know that…and keep coming back for more 😉

See we disagree on one very minor part, whether the impeachment means anything to us personally. I still don’t think it does…at all. Other than that…your opinions and mine line up pretty close to exact!

Welcome to the right side of history!

AH Trimble Feedback and CommentsFeedback & Comments from my articles on the 1/6 attack on the Capital Building…

From Michael –

I just had to tell you that I am grateful for your level-headed responses to all the chaos around us right now. I have seen a lot in my days, even spent some time in DC as a page back in the early 80s (I stood on the floor of the House during President Reagan’s State of the Union address in 1983. Amazing.) and can see how much corruption exists there now, beyond anything we have ever experienced. Your call to be spiritually self-reliant is more important now than ever before – we MUST know the will of the Lord for ourselves. We cannot (and SHOULD not) rely on any person/thing/political idea to “save” us. There is only ONE Savior – and we must have a personal relationship with Him.


From Ron –

You’re most likely on some stupid list already. Biden talking about citizens being [a domestic] terrorist also takes away your rights and puts you under the Patriot Act. I already knew Biden was like this and have a hard time believing anyone voted for the man. Low information voters I guess. I doubt Trump will do anything so I advise getting ready for a 100 day lockdown.


From Diana –

Thank you for this article [FAQ – 1/6/2021 (Why?)] It made perfect sense.


From Jimbo –

Well, no quibbles today. Nailed every topic accurately. 

No, actually, I do agree with everything except that Trump is a “ego maniac.” An egotist, absolutely. But ego maniac suggests literal mentally unfit, someone that needs to literally be locked up…which he isn’t. Oh, he has a HUGE ego and loves to stroke that ego himself, if enough others aren’t doing it for him…which makes him an egotist.

Or, for consistency, you’d also have to lock up the majority of male New York City natives that I’ve also known through my life. That’s just how they breed many of them there.

Now, separate subject: The events of the last few days have played so well into the hands of the extreme Left, that it is hard to believe that it wasn’t to some extent manipulated by that extreme Left.

Their current goal, having won the election via final certification of the EC votes, is to ruin Trump’s ability to remain a political force in the nation. Yes, they’re afraid of him post-term, lest he do the conservative equivalent of what Soros and other billionaires have done on the Left. So far, they’re doing a pretty good job of it.

And, what about actions of Twitter and Facebook banning Trump:
— who never banned Stacey Abrams when she claimed for FOUR YEARS that her election in Georgia was fraudulently stolen from her, even went around introducing herself as the “real Governor of Georgia.”
— Has permitted thousands of antifa types to openly use their platforms to explicitly organize violence for MONTHS this election year. Only a few stray, small-time antifa types have been banned, usually for something so dire as promising that all of the capitalists would be lined up against the wall and shot, if they didn’t get with the program. OH, WAIT. That was the Twitter CEO, and he wasn’t banned…why not? The answer to that seems clear, isn’t it?

We live in interesting times. Time to batten down the hatches.

Hey Jimbo…I know you are “Jim” 😉

Also, just a point of clarification…Egomania is psychiatric term used to describe excessive preoccupation with one’s ego, identity or self and applies the same preoccupation to anyone who follows one’s own ungoverned impulses, is possessed by delusions of personal greatness & grandeur and feels a lack of appreciation. Someone suffering from this extreme egocentric focus is an egomaniac. (and that there is the official version of the definition)

So YUP!  In my personal, non-professional opinion…Trump is an egomaniac…according to the official definition. Does he need locked up? Nope…unless he keeps going down the rabbit hole.

As for everything else in your reply/comment/feedback/point/information…AGREE !  Spot on !

OK, let’s talk…

It’s been a full week since I posted “Crotchety old man…” and my ears are burning. For those of you under 50 that is a saying that goes something like “people have been talking about me” if I remember right. But, you get my point if you read the comments to that crotchety post.

I had no idea that post would garner so much attention, and so many comments. It is the most commented on post on the entire website by an order of magnitude. And it is one of the most viewed pages…even got two views this morning so far.  As for the comments…I’ve read them multiple times to make sure I was hearing what each person had to say. I also responded to each and every comment…even the freak show comment from an even more crotchety old person…and I mean really crotchety. And, I will ignore their comment in the rest of this post.

So let me start off by saying…I had no idea I would get the kind of comments that I did from that post. The comments were quite honestly overwhelming in kindness, support, understanding, and encouragement. I have to get personal here…I was seriously touched and humbled.

Each comment meant something special to me. There were a couple who made observations of me that were eerily too close to truth. I had no idea I exposed myself that much, or maybe they are just very observant, or listen to the spirit really well. And then there was one that reminded me that if my site and my efforts never did anything else but what he referred to…it was all worth it. You see, just a couple years ago he wrote to me and explained he had found Christ, gained a testimony, joined the church, his wife joined the church, they are active in callings at church, and (for you LDS folks) they were sealed in the temple. If there was ever a reason to do something…that is it…help someone come unto Christ.

So you guys get the idea…ya’ll touched me…and I mean really made an impact on my outlook on this website and my time and efforts. It quite honestly surprised me.

So here is what I want to talk about…

  1. The site won’t go dark or go off-line.
  2. I will continue to write.
  3. I will get a plan together to resurrect Escape from Home and get that book back on track.

However, I can’t make any promises on how much writing I will do or how often I will post. I will let the spirit move me, I will let current events dictate, and I will simply do the best I can given my circumstances.

Why the change of heart? Well, I already explained some of it. But, I will be open with you…a series of personal setbacks took place that impacted my outlook. I’ve developed a serious debilitating problem with my right arm. That is my shooting hand/arm and the arm I rely on for my strength. Five years ago I tore up my left shoulder so that arm has its limitations…my right arm is essential to me. I will know more when the test results get back. My feet have taken a turn for the worst and there are days when the pain is really bad just to walk. But, worst of all…my UTV broke! Yeah, I have a 14 year old UTV that is a workhorse around the place. Literally, I use it every day for work, it’s not a pleasure/fun UTV to go joy riding. I haul dirt and rock, firewood, tools, water, etc. and I mean it…I use it every single day at the place for work. Well, it broke. And UTVs do break, especially when they are used as work vehicles. No big deal…I’ll just fix it. I identified the broken part…a mid-prop shaft (imagine two universal joints yoked together). I looked up the part in my Polaris shop manual, called the local dealer with my debit card in hand, and ordered the part. Well, almost. The parts guy told me the news you don’t want to hear…”Sorry sir, they don’t make that part anymore, it’s no longer available.” Yeah, and 5 days of phone calls later trying to find a new one, or even a used, one at a junk yard had proven entirely unsuccessful. Today I meet with a machine shop to see if they can make me a new part. The day I wrote “crotchety” was the day after the unsuccessful search for a replacement part. And the realization that I don’t have $6,000 that it would take to replace that workhorse machine with an equivalent machine. And to top it all off…my wife has a family reunion in early October (yeah, 3 weeks away). Big deal? Well, normally no. But, she’s invited them here to see the new house and what we’ve done with the 40 acres. Am I anywhere near ready for her showing the place off? Ah, no…and the pressure mounts.

But, all of this is called life…and pales in comparison to what I know some of you are going through. How do I know that? Because I know some of ya’ll personally and I know there are much worse circumstances out there for some of you.

Now, what I want to do is hear from you guys. I am posting a form below and I am going to ask you two questions:

  1. What types/kinds of articles would you like to see me concentrate on?
  2. What types/kinds of articles would you like to see me not write?

The answers will help me immensely as I try to figure out where my time is best spent.

Also, I am asking for names and email addresses on the form. First, don’t worry, I am not going to abuse that information or sell it or anything of the sort. I have something cooking in my head and having that information to connect with you would be important.

The last “comment” on the form is for any personal message, good or bad, you wish to share with me.

Again, thank you for the incredible comments, thoughts, feelings, compliments, and encouragements that you shared with me. They meant something to me, they meant a lot.

AH Trimble Feedback and Comments

 

In response to my Immediate Action Warning this morning I received this passionate response…


OK, what exactly would be a correct response by government or individuals?
The police have abandoned large areas of several cities. They either can not or will not do anything. How many burglaries, assaults, robberies, rapes, and murders have been committed in the police no-go zones? How many scores settled?
Does this sound like France, Sweden, or Germany?

If troops, whether Guard or Regulars, are deployed (in spite of Posse Comitatus), will they have empty rifles?
For how many years was the traditional ROE for troops and civilians in disaster areas “You loot, we shoot”? Would you expect them to NOT shoot? Easy to say, if you are not in the line of men facing a mob. If not that, then what? Allow the mob to beat them down and take their select-fire weapons, or pull out and once again leave the streets and neighborhoods to the looters? No good choices, but which is worse?
Not making a choice is still a choice.
Civilians too will be quickly overwhelmed by sheer numbers unless they use deadly force, and at least one pawnshop owner (yes, a white guy) was arrested. After the arrest, the store was gutted. In law, in every jurisdiction I’m aware of, shooting to stop arson is a justifiable use of deadly force, as is the disparity of force of being faced by a mob. Apparently, MN has a “duty to retreat” law everywhere- except a domicile, so the choices for business owners are death, destitution, or jail.
https://heavy.com/news/2020/05/john-rieple/
How about these men, (who I’d side with and you will not find this on youtube)? Would they be arrested as quickly as the white pawn owner?
https://www.worldstarhiphop.com/videos/video.php?v=wshhhB2w3tSuRIVkX79A
Is the only alternative to simply leave the law-abiding at the mercy of the mob?
Just sayin’.
I wonder if the mayor and other members of the Minnesota Democratic Farmer Labor Party (yes really) have any idea what they are creating?
( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minnesota_Democratic%E2%80%93Farmer%E2%80%93Labor_Party)
Who will tolerate a place where the cops only arrest the basically law-abiding non-violent “offender”, and the citizens are not allowed to defend either their property or themselves. Governors and mayors of the progressive blue states cry about the flight of the tax base, as they become ever more greedy and tyrannical, but so far, their only solution is to demand more bailouts and blame Trump for their own failings.


A lengthy and provocative post to be sure. But, it is also a tough post to respond to based on a number of factors; 1) passion, 2) straw-man arguments, 3) inaccurate/false set of choices, 4) presentation of binary choices,etc. So, I thought I would respond to some of the more specific issues raised to ensure clarification of my position and provide food for thought to readers. I will reproduce his post and then embed my thoughts/responses. But please, don’t let this sidetrack you from the purpose of the warning and actions to take.

OK, what exactly would be a correct response by government or individuals? (It was the government that caused the problem to begin with. It was one of them that killed the man. So the government is responsible for the problem. I am not saying that to excuse any behavior of the looters, but they didn’t just start looting out of thin air. The foundation of the problem is rooted in the government there.)
The police have abandoned large areas of several cities. They either can not or will not do anything. (I am not sure if that is true or not. I have no information that there is an official policy or such direction by local government leadership.) How many burglaries, assaults, robberies, rapes, and murders have been committed in the police no-go zones? (No idea, nor does anyone else know what those numbers are…if any.) How many scores settled? ? (No idea, nor does anyone else know what those numbers are…if any.)
Does this sound like France, Sweden, or Germany? (To me it sounds like a police force that allowed an officer to stay on the force WAY too long and other officers who stood by and watched one of their own kill a man. And it sounds like a subset of the population who are frustrated beyond my ability to comprehend it. And violence and destruction that should not be taking place. It sounds like the USA to me…I saw it many times over the decades going all the way back to the civil rights movement.)

If troops, whether Guard or Regulars, are deployed (in spite of Posse Comitatus), will they have empty rifles? (I can’t imagine they would have empty rifles and would not want them to have such. Putting troops in harm’s way and then not allowing them to defend themselves is unconscionable. Putting troops in the streets armed to the teeth is even more unconscionable.)
For how many years was the traditional ROE for troops and civilians in disaster areas “You loot, we shoot”? (No idea since I am not aware of and have not done research on all of those incidents.) Would you expect them to NOT shoot? (My primary opinion of shooting to kill is in defense of life.) Easy to say, if you are not in the line of men facing a mob. (It is easy to say! Because ALL people are free to have their own opinion and to state such. Lack of opinion, morals, ethics, and principles is a sure way to crash a society.) If not that, then what? Allow the mob to beat them down and take their select-fire weapons, or pull out and once again leave the streets and neighborhoods to the looters? (Of course not!) No good choices, but which is worse? (You are setting up a binary choice…and that is extremely limited thinking…tunnel vision at its worse. Allow locals to make the right outcome…not someone in Washington, not me sitting in my chair, and no one else unless they are directly involved.)
Not making a choice is still a choice. (No one ever suggested that. But assuming only binary answers to a situation is worse idea.)
Civilians too will be quickly overwhelmed by sheer numbers unless they use deadly force, and at least one pawnshop owner, yes, a white guy, was arrested. (You are speaking in absolutes and from passion. I understand that but it is quicksand foundation for developing a workable solution to the problem.) After the arrest, the store was gutted. In law, in every jurisdiction I’m aware of, shooting to stop arson is a justifiable use of deadly force, as is the disparity of force of being faced by a mob. (You are talking post-event not at the moment. And I am not familiar with the situation so I will refrain from responding more.) Apparently, MN has a “duty to retreat” law everywhere- except a domicile, so the choices for business owners are death, destitution, or jail. (Once again you are writing from a passionate perspective. “Duty to retreat” is a de-escalation tactic. Leaving the area rather than killing someone, or many people, makes sense in almost every situation…if you highly value life and its potential. Killing in self-defense is a God-given right and should not be suppressed, ever. So duty-to-retreat for a business owner means…life, insurance claims, clear conscious, and a plan to recover…NOT “death, destitution, or jail”!)
https://heavy.com/news/2020/05/john-rieple/ (Not familiar with the situation and it has zero bearing/impact on my opinion and viewpoint regardless of the facts in the matter. I was not respond to or write about a pawn shop owner.)
How about these men, who I’d side with and you will not find this on youtube? Would they be arrested as quickly as the white pawn owner?

Is the only alternative to simply leave the law-abiding at the mercy of the mob? (If the media reporting is accurate…I applaud these folks!!!! They are the property owners and have rights. I hope they are well-informed and know what they are doing. If they kill someone there will be legal issues and a life-time of second-guessing and dealing with taking a life…probably PTSD to some degree. That could be a heavy burden. I hope they are trained in all aspects of dealing with this kind of a situation and not just acting out of passion of fulfilling some fantasy of who they think they are.)
Just sayin’.
I wonder if the mayor and other members of the Minnesota Democratic Farmer Labor Party (yes really) have any idea what they are creating? (No. Unquestionably “No!” That city has been out of control for decades. They have a police force that has been out of control for just as long…a police force that they have created and allowed to act as outlaws in many situations over the years. Officer Derek Chauvin has a long documented history of inappropriate and lawless behavior while on their police force. And that police force and city leadership allowed it to continue…if not encouraged it. They bear the blame, the burden, and should receive justice as well.)

Who will tolerate a place where the cops only arrest the basically law-abiding non-violent “offender”, and the citizens are not allowed to defend either their property or themselves. (That is rhetorical in nature and not applicable to this situation at all. But if you are speaking more generally…then the answer is a simple…”no” ) Governors and mayors of the progressive blue states cry about the flight of the tax base, as they become ever more greedy and tyrannical, but so far, their only solution is to demand more bailouts and blame Trump for their own failings. (And that displays their cowardice, lack of morals/ethics, and an absence of leadership. And oh so typical of who they are. Sad!)


This is why these kinds of situations are very volatile…and they seldom have good outcomes…only destruction and sadness…seldom a positive solution. It is also why people should be very slow to react to these situations unless they are directly involved in a life-death situation! Taking a hasty and ill-thought out action can result is damning decisions that will haunt the average person for the rest of their lives.

All of this being said…PLEASE go back a read the Warning and understand its purpose and not get sidetracked by a backseat issue/principle. Stick with what is important in the message.

“As far as the NRA…
From the NFA of 1934 to the so called “bump-stock ban”, the NRA has supported every single gun control measure ever enacted.
In every case they called it “compromise” legislation and folded like a cheap tent.”

Later in the day he wrote again…

This SCOTUS ruling (November 9, 1942) is known as “Wickard v Filburn”. This was where wheat grown by Mr. Filburn, on his own land, for his own cattle was declared part of “interstate commerce” and therefore was subject to the whim of government regulators. It was one of the first and worst of the rulings destroying our right to private property.
It should have been no surprise.
This was only a few months after FDR signed Executive Order 9066 (February 19, 1942), which allowed interning Americans of Japanese descent and stripping private property from them without trial.


note from AH Trimble: Glad to see people know real history and no the propaganda crap pumped out of the government and other organizations!

“Good Morning:

My husband and I are past 80;…..we are still living here on Terra Firma so are continually trying to be informed about options for the future.

I have forever been a “prepper”……While hubby loves his horses, taking grand-kidlets into the mountains on horses, fishing, teaching them how to live off the land, etc., etc.!

Admittedly, what lies ahead for everyone is a HUGE Unknown …..at least to a lesser or a larger degree.   BUT, after death THERE ARE NO questions!

Thus, I enjoy learning and reading about THE  “What IF” THAT becomes a reality….Then I say to myself….”Hey, I read an article by a guy I never met named AH Timble, and he suggested this IDEA might be a “life saver” at just such a time as this!!!!   : )

Thanks,  AH Trimble!!

Thank you. This fits what we need to know right now. All things seem to be in commotion. Many do not realize the danger we all face with this virus panic.  We need to be aware of where we are and what is happening around us all the time. This is not only a pandemic it is also a power grab from us to them. If successful, we can find ourselves more enslaved than we already are. As some have said “arm up carry on”
