Resist !

OK, that was “click bait” for sure…again. (More on “Resist! a little later.)

Unofficial vote results shows a Biden/Harris win. Biden won the popular

vote by over 4million votes. He also apparently won 290 Electoral College votes, maybe more…albeit unofficially.

Remember I wrote that Biden would win the popular vote? That should have been a no-brainer for anyone…Trump was wildely unpopular with many, many people in this country for a wide variety of reasons.

And while 290 EC votes is not exactly a landslide it is pretty clear that Biden flipped a couple battle ground states back into being Democrat country.

And of course the Democrat Party held onto the House of Representatives.

But, here may be the worst news of all…the Senate may still end up in Democrat Party hands. Currently the Republicans and Democrats are deadlocked at 48 seats each. A couple of races have yet to be called. Should the Republicans win a majority then there is a firewall against the radical leftist policies that Biden/Harris will attempt to push through. Should the Democrats win a majority, then prepare yourself for an onslaught of radical socialist/authoritarian policies turning into laws. And then it gets worse…Democrats will be able to appoint large numbers of federal-level judges. And yes, they will obviously make a run at enlarging the Supreme court…then packing those seats with radical left-wingers. They desire a clear majority of radical leftist Supreme Court Justices.

And don’t forget…should there be a vote tie of Senators, Republican/Democrat, then vote ties are broken by the President of the Senate…the Vice-President. And that of course would be Kamala Harris…the most radical and authoritarian Vice-President that we have had since the FDR days….maybe longer.

So we are on the cusp of a HUGE speed change in the direction of our country. No, not a HUGE change of direction…simply a HUGE difference (i.e. increase) in the speed of the direction our government in making.

Speed vs Direction????

Yes, the direction the country has been taking for 120 years is plain and very easy to see. The US government is making our country a more authoritarian state, with socialist underpinnings, and with a steady loss of rights, liberties, and freedoms; and doing so by seizing more and more power and money from US citizens. It has been a steady and consistent direction for those 120 years with only the speed of seizing changing.

Under Biden/Harris the speed will increase…and become ever so painful to those that value rights, freedoms, and liberties. And it will be ever so welcomed by those that love socialism and/or authoritarianism.

So what about the “Resist!” thing I bait clicked you on?

Ah, but maybe not how you think in terms of resisting. I am speaking of resisting:

  • Fear of what is to come.
  • Panic buying.
  • Panic moving.
  • Joining a militia.
  • Participating in violence against the “system” in any shape or form.
  • Panic selling of stock/ precious metals, etc.
  • Panic withdrawing of IRA, 401k, or pension funds.

Resist all those passion driven actions, restrain your emotions. Allow time to show what is coming, how soon, how it will affect you, and what you should do about it. Be patient. Be kind. Be thoughtful. Be clear in thought. Be prayerful.

We lived through 8 years of Obama…the stock market did quite well under his Presidency actually.

We lived through 12 years of globalist, Progressive Bush Presidencies even though we lost a HUGE amount of rights, liberties, and freedoms.

We lived through 8 years of Clinton and all his crap.

We can it through this as well…maybe…ah, more on that later.

Now, what do I see coming?

  • The animosity among US citizens will skyrocket.
  • The rancor among US citizens will skyrocket.
  • Republicans will become even more cynical, angry, whinny, and weary of all things government. The latter is a good thing since they have been sycophants for the last 4 years.
  • The Democrats will be emboldened exponentially to nosebleed heights.
  • Expect more welfare.
  • Expect more abortions.
  • Expect more open borders.
  • Expect left-wing demonstrations/protests to advance their causes.
  • Expect higher taxes on higher income earners.
  • Expect more tax increases.
  • Expect more food stamps.
  • Expect college loan forgiveness.
  • Expect more housing assistance.
  • Expect a significant and at times violent suppression of militias.
  • Expect election reforms…national standards dictated by the federal government.
  • Expect a significant increase in social media and tech giant speech restriction (i.e. censorship).
  • Expect an increase in the federal minimum wage.
  • Expect more paid worker benefits.
  • Expect an exponential increase in the COVID-19 response by states controlled by Democrats and especially the federal government.
  • Expect COVID-19 situation to get worse…maybe even much worse.
  • Expect large federal budget deficits.
  • Expect a significant growth in the national debt.
  • Expect more “Bubba Effect”.

Once I can think through these issues with a little more perspective I will write about what I specifically would like to suggest as a course of action. But, I have total confidence in you that you already know what you need to do…or will shortly be able to sort it all out and lay in a plan of action.

The single most painful and dangerous clarification that came out of this election…TWO Americas.

America is clearly broken down along a single clearly defined line…Urban/Rural…you could also call it Coast/Middle.

Let me briefly explain…Big cities and the surrounding suburbs are clearly and overwhelmingly left-wing. While most areas outside of the cities, and especially the middle of the country, is far more conservative. Look at any state county-by-county breakdown of Presidential vote results map and you will plainly see what I am talking about.

Unfortunately that points the US in a serious and dangerous direction…revolt. Maybe you even call it Civil War…or maybe even Revolution.  But the bottom line…the two sides that have formed in America are diametrically opposed to one another. And 70 years, maybe even 25 years ago we could have rallied together against a common foe. But…no more, those days are gone.  Even after 9/11 the country rallied together for maybe a few months…then back to polar opposites along political lines.

The two sides are on a collision course…war.

Don’t be surprised…America has noble beginnings and a divinely inspired foundation in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and The Bill of Rights. But, like any/every other government…they seized more and more power and money from citizens. And America has done so like any other empire in the history of mankind. And like ALL other empires America too will fall. When? I have no idea…could be in 100 years, could be next year…but it will fall…they all have. America will be no different.

Fortunately, there are enough people who know and love the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and The Bill of Rights…and will save them and their principles even if it only by a thread. Unfortunately…our country, as such, will not be saved and our government cannot, will not, be restored to its original form and design. But, there will be pockets of people where those ideals will be preserved and lived. Are you prepared to be part of, or a leader of, one of those pockets?

More to come…

Now, the rest of the story…

Yup, that’s borrowed from Paul Harvey…I didn’t think he’d mind, especially when you hear the story.

So in my Crotchety Old Man post on 9/8/20 <click here to read> I mentioned my UTV being broken down and the part to fix it is no longer manufactured and I couldn’t find it anywhere. Well, let me finish that story for you…the rest of the story.

So you got the first part…broken UTV, part is no longer manufactured, talked to multiple dealers with no luck, they even searched a special web-thing that shows what dealers, if any, still have it on the shelf (called “old new stock”) and no luck. Talked to every major parts supplier house on the Internet, no part anywhere to be found. Talked to a couple of ATV/UTV/motorcycle junk yards, the best I got was “I think I might have it around somewhere, if not my buddy might have one, call me back in a couple weeks.”

To say I was disappointed and discouraged would be a massive understatement. That UTV is a workhorse around here. I use it every day for my projects and my chores. Without it, my workload is much more strenuous and tiring…if not impossible. But, no part was to be found…nowhere, for any amount of money. Not giving up, I had decided that the week of September 14th I was going to drive to Phoenix (1/2 day away) and just start visiting every junk yard and UTV dealer in the entire area.

On September 15th I awoke very early in the morning (couldn’t sleep) and wrote “OK, let’s talk…” <click here to read> What motivated me to write that post? Well, I received exactly 6 comments via email to the “Crotchety Old Man” post but about 20 posted comments. One struck me like a baseball bat across the face…

“If you save but one soul how great shall be your joy…. Whether you save one temporally, spiritually or both you have brought a great wealth of information, knowledge, experience and wisdom to those of us who are learning to be prepared.”

It came from a special man who I have a special connection with that is…well, very special. He reminded me on what I was supposed to be doing. His reply, along with the ton of other posts and emails, made me feel humbled…and renewed. That generated “OK, let’s talk…” Well, now…that post generated more emails to me than any other post ever! All were wonderful, heartfelt, touching, warm, and just plain great. I had no idea that…well, I just had no idea.

Back to the UTV part…

Right after I wrote that post (OK, let’s talk…) I started feeling (a prompting really) that morning to call Polaris directly and plead my case and see if there was anything they could possibly do. But it wasn’t until late in the day (9/15) when I finally got around to it. And of course their headquarters is way back east…they were closed. But, I talked to a nice guy who took my information, he gave me a case number, and told me to call back the next day when customer service was open.

I called early the next morning and talked to a customer service representative that sounded bored out of her mind and completely disinterested in my situation. She put me on hold to talk with “Parts”…predictable results. She came back on, message was anticipated…the part is no longer manufactured, it’s not in any Polaris warehouse anywhere in the world, and she was sorry. She then said that the parts guy had checked the dealer inter-something net and would email me dealer contact information that they thought might have it.  Well, I already knew the dealer they were talking about, had talked to them, and they didn’t have it. But, I thanked her anyways and we hung up. I was thoroughly and completely discouraged. And to share the despair I went in to tell my wife the news. As I walked into the living room…”I heard” was all she said. I turned around and walked out of the room.

Disheartened I returned to the little spare/storage/computer room and sat down. Before I started up the part searching I wanted to see what was happening with the “OK, let’s talk…” post. I was surprised, a very decent number of views! And then I checked the personal responses that came in via email. Wow! There were already a bunch of emails from people I knew, all being very supportive and encouraging. And then there was the one specific email…from Betty, a very dear friend of mine that I’ve known for nearly 45 years. Here is the main message from her email…

“Wow, I can imagine how much you depend on the UTV. Maybe a ministering angel will drop one out of the sky for you. Remember what Art always said, ‘all you can do is all you can do, and all you can do is enough.’  One other thing, Heavenly Father wants us to ask and be specific and direct in our asking. Y’all are in our prayers!!
Hugs, Betty”

So, now the rest of the story…

I had been praying all along that Heavenly Father would bless us in regards to the UTV. Each time I worked the phones or searched the Internet I had a prayer either vocally or in my heart. But, I had not been specific in what I was asking help with. That would change. I had a prayer. I was specific.

I checked my regular email account and there was the email from Polaris “parts” with a list of 4 potential dealers that were showing they had the part in stock. I was elated and thrilled…prayers were working. But, before I picked up my cell phone I had a very specific prayer to please get us the part.

Called dealer #1: no, it was a software system error, they didn’t actually have the part at all, never did.

Called dealer #2: yup, they had the part up until YESTERDAY! They had shipped it out this morning to a dealer in Illinois to fix a customer’s machine.

Called dealer #3: well, not actually a dealer…a grain and seed store that also sold a few Polaris parts par-time. Busy signal.

Called dealer #4: They didn’t think they had it but would check and get back to me. As I was giving them my area code…they hung on me.

What?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!!?

I was getting ready to call Polaris back when Betty’s words came back to me…clearly. So, I had an even more specific prayer for help from Heavenly Father. And called back the non-dealer Dealer #3, “Will” answered.

I explained the situation to him and told him that Polaris was showing that he had the part in stock. He checked…nope, not showing it in stock on his computer system. I was crushed. But, he said he would go check the spot on the shelf where it should be just to be sure. I was put on hold.

Literally 10 minutes I was on hold. During that time I kept praying a specific prayer for help, a pleading to for God to be merciful and help us…to find that part for us.

Will came back on the line and said the spot was bare…no part where it would have been. Then he said he felt like he should look round on some of the other shelves which he had done…and he was holding the part in his hand. He had found it nowhere near where it should have been. He didn’t know why it wasn’t there…but he was holding it in his hand.

I was simply overwhelmed with emotion.

I told him I would take it! He said it would go out today. I paid for it and told him he was an answer to prayers. As I walked into the living room to tell my wife the good news I had tears in my eyes. I explained it to her…we were joyful to say the least.

To recap:

  • I had become discouraged about the website.
  • I wrote an article (Crotchety Old Man) to that effect and I was going dark.
  • You guys responded with such warmth and good will that I couldn’t abandon the website. The turning point…the message from Glen that I shared earlier.
  • I wrote “OK, let’s talk…” as a result of all of those incredible replies and encouragement.
  • Then a reply to that posting from Betty to be specific in my prayers for help with the UTV.
  • Also, many of the replies I had received contained messages that I/we were in their prayers.
  • For the two previous weeks I had no luck finding the part for the UTV…none!
  • Then I get the prompting to call Polaris direct. They give me the only 4 options left.
  • One dealer who had the part had sold it the day before I called. (FYI…they had the part on the shelf for over 10 years).
  • Two other dealers were of no help, one of them had hung up on me.
  • The other dealer (a non-dealer) gave me a busy signal the first attempt. Then their system showed they no longer had one in stock.
  • The guy was kind enough to check just to be sure…and no part in the bin where it was supposed to be.
  • Then he felt like checking the other shelves to see if he could find it.
  • He eventually found it nowhere near where it should have been.

It arrived Tuesday, I installed it yesterday. I drove it from the workshop to the house, pulling up and whistling to my wife if she wanted to go for a ride. All is well, all is well.

So now you know the rest of the story…the whole story.

If you are a religious person…this reinforces that God lives, He hears us, and He answers prayers. That is my testimony.

If you are not a religious person…well, maybe you should reconsider now that you know the rest of the story.

Ginsburg Dead! & Armed Rebellion Coming? – UPDATED

Yesterday I posted an article warning about the potential for violence, if not outright armed rebellion, if Trump and the Republicans tries to replace RGB. <click here to read the article>

I really looked all over the Internet this morning for several hours and found a large list of groups calling to “burn down” the system (including Congress) if the current administration tries to replace RGB.

And, not so strangely, there is a long and growing list of celebrities calling for the same thing.

For this to gain so much traction so quickly is worrisome to say the least. The next “dot” to watch for are actual protests or demonstrations that would support the “burn it down” advocacy and how quickly they show up.

Even Pelosi is talking about another impeachment attempt before the election or if Trump is defeated, during his lame-duck period.

Keep your eyes open, become more prepared, fill the holes in your pres, and stand-by.

And one more thing…get your principles defined, solidified, and be prepared to stand up for them.

Do not succumb to “politics”…stand for your “principles” ! !

 

Ask me a question or send me a message/comment …

Ginsburg Dead! & Armed Rebellion Coming?

While I am glad to see one less radical leftist member of the Supreme Court gone, I have to extend my condolences to Ginsburg’s family for their loss. But, this creates a potential powder keg situation for the country.

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died in February 2016. Obama nominated Merrick Garland to replace him. Republican leadership, they controlled the Senate, said that the vacancy should not be filled until after the Presidential election in 2016, and the new President was sworn in.

Now, McConnell is saying something entirely different. He has stated multiple times in the last 5 months that he would allow Trump to nominate and a vote would be taken on any Court vacancy.

Ouch, obviously a double standard as well as hypocrisy at its worse. But there is a potentially much larger problem…violence. Or, I should say much more violence.

What do you think will happen if Trump is allowed to nominate a Conservative to fill Ginsburg’s vacancy…and the Senate confirms? Actually, they will go ballistic when Trump is allowed to nominate, they will go more ballistic when the hearings take place…and they will go nuclear if a nominee is confirmed if this is done before the election. And double that if Trump is defeated and this stills goes through before January 20th when Trump would leave office.

We could potentially see an open armed rebellion in the streets.

Prepare now for that eventuality.

Note: I am working on another piece; it is in its final editing. Three weeks’ worth of work has gone into the research and editing. I hope to get it out on Monday. With this Ginsburg vacancy development I have to “war game” what, if any, differences it may make in my opinion.

Stand-by!  Prepare now!

Crotchety old man…

You know what really made me happy and gave me a lot of satisfaction? Over the last couple of weeks a few things I did for some folks:

  • Took care of a neighbor’s farm and animals so his family could go camping for a few days.
  • Repaired a switch on a friends ATV without him knowing it.
  • Spent a few hours working on our community’s dirt roads with my tractor.
  • Cooked 6 meals for a family in need.
  • Built a parking area, complete with a culvert, on a neighbor’s 4a so they could have their family up for the weekend…and start building a shop in preparation for them building a “get-away” cabin.
  • Baked 4 loaves of bread for neighbors just for the heck of it.
  • Helped a friend move his family to a new home.
  • Helped a neighbor put up drywall in his bathroom to restart his stalled house remodeling project.
  • Graded around a neighbor’s house because he couldn’t afford to have a company come in and do it.

And the list goes on and on. And I loved every minute of it and look forward to doing more !

When I retired I made a deal with God…I would thank Him, and worship Him, by helping others. And it is amazingly satisfying…I feel like I am really helping others and having a positive impact in their lives. In other words…being both useful and helpful through serving others.

Now…a reality check!!

An example in contrast: I spent about 20 hours on the three-part series SitRep – 08/29/20, researching, writing, finding & adding graphics, editing, etc. As a result of that effort…123 people read Part #1, 104 people read Part #2, and only 77 people read Part #3. Yeah, that really, really sucks! To make it even worse…just three people “liked” Part #1, two people “liked” Part #2, same for Part #3. And one person made a comment…yup, just one. That’s pathetic…really, really sad!!!

And don’t be insulted…the pathetic, sad, sucks, etc. applies to what I am doing, what I wrote…not anything to do with what ya’ll are doing. It is just pretty obvious that the article simply missed the point for what folks are looking for. In other words…I am not meeting a “need” with my assessments, suggestions, writing, etc.

I looked at the number of “followers” I have…pretty dang low for the Internet, pretty low for “prepper” websites as well. And I’ve only gained a couple new followers in the last couple of weeks. Pitiful by Internet standards !

Well, I am not going to drag this out…I’ve come to several conclusions:

  1. I don’t think there are more than a handful of folks who find any value in my knowledge, experience, writing style, my vision/version of “prepping”, or my guidance in emergency preparedness.
  2. I am not making much, if any, impact on people being prepared for emergencies, disasters, or grid-down events.
  3. My time spent on writing articles is virtually wasted when compared to alternative uses of my time in helping others.

So folks…four “Tip” articles came out this morning that I already had ready to go and scheduled, so I just bumped them up to come out this morning. Those will be my last articles unless something drastically changes or I see some special need in the future. Well, actually…there will be a posting on 9/11. That has been a very special day to me and this year was a turning point for me and that experience 19 years ago. I will be updating the Table of Contents at some point in the coming days, weeks, or months as time permits. And then the website will sit out there as a dusty old book sitting on a shelf for anyone who stumbles upon it.

Take care folks…I hope and pray we all manage to get through what is coming…you will be in my prayers.

Here is the follow-up article written a week later after all the comments to this article. <click here to read the follow-up>

Planned Parenthood : Margaret Sanger

note: first appeared in November 2015 (updated in August 2020)

You might want to read these tow articles first:

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, hero of the Democrats, the darling of liberals, and the mother of Progressives…let’s get to know her a little better…

Planned Parenthood : Did you fall down, hit your head, and think you woke up in the 1950’s or 1890’s?

Left-Wing Extremist  Elizabeth Warren

note: article first appeared in July 2015

To read my original article on Planned Parenthood and who they are, read this article <click here to read it>

Elizabeth Warren, the US Senator, the left-wing socialist extremist and Native American impersonator is at it again. Here is a quote from her “Did you fall down, hit your head, and think you woke up in the 1950’s or 1890’s?” Of course she was referring to the Senate attempting to defund Planned Parenthood. But the leftist Warren wasn’t done yet, “…a deliberate, methodical, orchestrated, right-wing attack on women’s rights.”

Yeah, uh huh…right.

If you read my article posted yesterday you know exactly my feeling on abortion.

Let’s get back to the woman who went on to say that the Republicans only wanted to strip away the right of a woman’s access to healthcare. Wow! Can you believe that someone can still think like that in the year 2015? Especially after having all the data, all the facts, and even the video-taped admissions of Planed Parenthood leadership. Those admissions detailing that they are performing abortions for profit and developing new ways to leave more baby body parts intact to sell for more money. They even outline how they plan to create deception trying to hide the fact that they are selling complete, intact, fully formed babies that have been aborted.

Now, granted, Elisabeth Warren is hard to take seriously when she is such a radical socialist that supports infanticide. Yes, that means she is perfectly OK with stabling babies in their heads with sharp surgical instruments and then severing their spines. And doing both of those things while the baby is alive and able to feel pain. Then she advocates for the organization that is selling the bodies and body parts of those babies that have been killed.

But ,Warren doesn’t want to refer to the killing of unborn babies as murder, infanticide, or racial genocide…although it is exactly all of those things.

So, I have to ask Senator Elizabeth Warren, “Did you fall down, hit your head, and think you woke up in 1939?”

Nazi Eugenics program learned from the founder of Planned Parenthood

FYI…1939 is when Nazis started the killing of the mentally ill, disabled, feeble and all others whose genes they considered to be “impure” and causing problems for their German race. The Nazi death program was called “eugenics.”

Eugenics is the same program that Planned Parenthood helped established here in the United States in the earlier part of the 1900’s. The founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, is the same person whose organization and associates taught the Nazis about eugenics. The same Planned Parenthood that today is killing well over a million babies per year. And making a significant profit committing infanticide.

And a little more FYI, the exact same Planned Parenthood that the federal government gives over a half a billion dollars to each year to commit their atrocities.

I have to wonder, when people look back at this time period in history will they ask, “How did intelligent people, decent people, a so-called democracy commit infanticide killing millions of babies each year?”

People have already asked that question about Nazi Germany, “How could the good Germans stand-by and watch the trains full of Jews head towards the death camps, knowing full well that they would be placed in ovens?”

And throughout history people have looked back at dozens of times in history and asked the same question, “How could they have let that happen?”

What do think would be Warren’s answer, “How could you stand-by, no, actively support, the mass killing of babies each year, for nearly 50 years?”

How would you answer that question for yourself?

Please don’t…

Wow!  I’ve been working on 6 or 7 preparedness articles (radios to generators) to get them ready to post. But late today I made a huge mistake! I went to another preparedness website. I really shouldn’t have. Do you want to know why? Very, very discouraging!

Please don’t get me wrong…I got to other sites regularly to get up to speed on different current events and to get a sense of the attitude of other preppers out there. This was not good today…not good at all.

First, the website I visited is a large prepper website. But, they also get into dreams, visions, weird teachings, and some strange subjects that get pretty off the beaten path. The website is largely made up of Christians, as well as being overwhelmingly conservative. By in large I think the people are good, well-intentioned, and just decent people. But…based on many of the posts I read while I was there…dang…they have strayed from gospel and Constitutional principles…and maybe worse.

Let me explain with a couple of examples…there is a man out there who has led two successful operations against the federal government. He has gone up against federal law enforcement agencies twice and won. He has demonstrated solid Constitutional understanding, supported Founding Father principles, and basically been a man to be trusted and he is counted on to be on the side of right. But, he is now being demonized. Yup…demonized! Demonized by the same people who held him as a hero for a long time.

He was to attend a BLM rally to show support to defund police according to an article written about him. So first off, the article is second hand information as best. And people who were posting terrible comments about him never gave that a single thought…at least based on the tone of their writing. Next, we have no idea what exactly he means by defunding police. To defund their militarization is exactly in accordance with Founding Father principles and positions. Defund to do away with police is not realistic. Defunding federal law enforcement agencies to the point of making them go away is a basic Constitution compliant position/principle. But, no one was giving him a chance, benefit of the doubt, etc. Just condemning him was the flavor of the day.

Then another article about food shortages during a lockdown. Well, for bragging about being upright disciples of Christ…they sounded like anything but! They talked about not sharing any food at all and watching people starve to death. Another talked about putting people into virtual slavery just to eat. All the posts were similar in tone and content…if you weren’t prepared…oh well, too bad for you and your kids! It was sickening, let alone disheartening.

I could relate more but I won’t…it is just too depressing. We are seeing exactly what I have warned about. Brother against brother, the sifting of US citizens, breaking into tribes, increase in evil, predisposition for violence, etc. For those of you who are Christians…we are seeing the sifting of the wheat from the chaff spoken of in the scriptures in the last days.

Here is my bottom line message…PLEASE DON’T!!!!   Please don’t forget who you are. Please don’t forget why we prepare. Please don’t forget what is means to be a basic human being. Please don’t forget what it means to be a disciple of Christ. Please don’t forget…just please don’t forget!

Be the person who you are supposed to be. Be that leader that is generous, merciful, understanding, admired and appreciated. Be that follower that understands mercy. Be that Christian who understands what Christ wants us to be.

Stand for correct principles. Don’t get caught up in a crowd mentality. Avoid group think. Reach out to others and build bridges…don’t destroy them. Do not be part of the radical right. Do not be a law & order extremist. Understand who the real enemies are. Think clearly.

Please don’t become one of them…please.
