Winter is coming…cut firewood!

Yup! That’s me yesterday morning. I was cutting firewood, wife person was gathering and loading it into the trailer. She took a break to video me cutting down a standing dead pine tree. All of this got me thinking about what we’ve all been hearing. And I have been researching and watching closely what has been happening in Europe…and California.

We have had the wettest monsoon season that anyone can remember in the last 50 years. And the old timers have been telling me that when they had this kind of monsoon season as kids…they had winters with lots of snow. And for lots of snow…it has to be cold.

But that is not all…the Farmer’s Almanac agrees…a cold and snowy winter for our area. However, the National Weather Service (NWS) is predicting above normal temperatures and below normal precipitation.  So…who to believe?

I guess the right question should be…Do you want to take a chance on who is right?

For me…I am cutting firewood already. In a normal winter here we use about 1.25 – 1.75 cords of wood. This year I will have 3 – 4 times that amount cut, stacked, and ready to go. Why? It has been the rainiest monsoon in 50 years (2.5 months already)…the NWS didn’t predict that. It has already been cold…hitting upper 40’s already…the NWS didn’t predict that. So we are not taking a chance. Besides, if I don’t use all that firewood this year we simply have a jump on it next year.

But, don’t kid yourself and think we aren’t looking at multiple options…we will be ready, more ready this year than any other. How?

  • 3 – 4 times more firewood than normal for our wood burning stove.
  • We installed a back-up 150gal propane tank.
  • We have four 25lb propane tanks, 1 is designated “Emergency Use Only”
  • We have three 5lb propane tanks reserved for only outdoor grill use.
  • We have a 30,000 BTU propane heater that connects to a plumbed household propane connection.
  • We have a 4,000 – 9,000 BTU propane heater that has its own 1lb tanks, or can be hooked into 5lb tanks.
  • We have multiple electric baseboard heaters.

That means we have two primary sources of heat…wood stove and electric baseboard heaters. Then we have two back-up heat sources, both propane. And plenty of propane on hand for the winter and then some.

One is none, two is one, three is a good start, four is security.

So why the heck do I share all of this information? Simple actually, I want you to know how serious we take redundant heat sources and how much credibility we give the idea that this winter might be really cold…possibly very cold for an extended period of time.

So my question to you…What is the winter looking like for your area, what are the predictions? And what have you done, are you doing, to prepare for it?

Think I am kidding around? No sir, I am not. Think about the situation in Europe…they are in big trouble and that may well be an understatement. Firewood is nonexistent because it has all been bought…since last month. They get their natural gas almost exclusively from Russia. Yeah, Russia…the same folks who have already cut the gas supply. They have drastically reduced the use and availability of coal. They have shut down most of their nuclear power plants. Their electric grid(s) couldn’t handle last winter or the winter before without rolling blackouts and brownouts. Their electric grid(s) couldn’t handle this summer’s demands without rolling brownouts. So what happens to their electric grid when Russia is not sending any natural gas, or not enough natural gas, to Europe?

And just a thought…did you know that Europe has had grid problems for years? Meaning this…their conversion to “green energy” is an utter failure…and they keep going down that same failed road.

Yup, they go out and buy electric heaters…then plug them in…then watch their grids fail. As they get colder and colder and panic increases what does America probably do to help them out? Yup, send them emergency shipments of LNG, propane, and oil. And what does that probably do for the supplies in America?

Think about your situation, your winter, your plan…what can you do now to help you and your family be better prepared for winter?

Russia Losing? Think again…

For years now, decades actually, I’ve maintained that “outcomes” are the key, not “intentions.” Meaning look at the outcome of what person’s, company’s, or even a country’s actions are vs what their intentions are. It is what the results or consequences are that really matter, not what they said they wanted to accomplish.

In Afghanistan the stated mission (i.e. intentions) of the US government, specifically Bush #2, was to destroy the ability of the Taliban to conduct terrorist activities. Then the mission morphed into “nation building” and “spreading democracy”. Success or failure?

Taliban now operates freely and openly in Afghanistan…oh, wait, the Taliban is the government in Afghanistan. And we provided billions of dollars of advanced military equipment when we retreated from their country. And Afghanistan is a theocracy run by Islamic zealots whose standard of living reflects a loss of 1500 years of civilization.

Intentions vs outcomes.

So back to Russia…is Russia losing?

Granted we know that a whole lot of Russians have died in the military operations they are conducting in the Ukraine. They have lost thousands of military vehicles, including their most advanced T90 main battle tank. A tank so tough, advanced and sophisticated that a $1,000 drone dropping a $100 hand grenade can turn it into flaming scrap metal. But they do control a good portion of Ukraine as a result of 6 months of operations.

Is Russia losing?

Well, let’s explore that…

  1. The reduction of Russian fossil fuels flowing to western countries has contributed to historic inflation levels in those countries, including the European Union (EU), including the USA.
  2. The reduction of Russian natural gas to the EU is sparking fear in those countries and causing additional economic hardships…primarily Germany, the #1 economy in the EU, the 4th largest economy in the world, and the strongest militarily in the EU.
  3. The reduction of agriculture crops coming out of the Ukraine and Russia have contributed to worldwide food shortages, present and future. Last year Russia was the #1 wheat exporter in the world, Ukraine was #5. Together they account for over 30% of the world’s production of the top 8 wheat producing countries.
  4. The reduction of available fertilizer is adding to the food crisis, present and future, in the world today. Russia is the world’s #1 exporter of fertilizer. Russia’s close ally China, is the world’s #2 exporter of fertilizer. Russia and China account for 1/4 of all exported fertilizer in the world.

So Russia has basically disrupted both the food and fuel situation in the entire world. Their actions, and the western country’s reactions, have caused fossil fuel prices to jump and energy availability to drop. It’s to the point where the EU is wondering how they are going to keep their populations warm this winter. Many non-western countries are facing starvation for notable percentages of their populations. In all countries food prices are spiraling into uncharted territory. In the US prices on everything are putting immense pressure on middle and lower income families…and it is predicted to get worse, potentially much worse. The US stock market is headed to, if not depression era lows, recession era territory and trillions of dollars are being lost.

So I ask the question again…Is Russia losing?

Wait a minute…are we even asking the right question? Remember I spoke about “intentions vs outcomes”…remember that just a minute ago? Outcomes are far more important than intentions. And when you are dealing with countries you have to consider the presence of propaganda when absorbing governments taking about intentions. And as we know…the USA is a master of propaganda…no one is better at lying and deceiving than the government of the United States. Doubt me? Think Afghanistan, Iraq, Vietnam, etc.

So go back to the outcomes I was listing in regards to the situation in the Ukraine. Now, add to that list of outcomes the fact that NATO countries have spent some $200+billion in direct and indirect military aid to Ukraine. So did those countries put in an order to the Walmart of the military-industrial complex and have it all drop shipped to Kiev? Nope! All that stuff came off the shelves of military warehouses and out of munition bunkers.

And so…do you think that those countries will let those shelves stay bare or those munition bunkers stay empty? Of course not! Think about it…that equipment sent to Ukraine was up to 20 years old in some cases, purchased at 2002 – 2010 prices. To fill those shelves and bunkers back up those countries now buy the latest and greatest replacements, upgraded of course, at 5 – 10 times the original equipment prices. So the military-industrial complex now gets new orders of upwards of $2TRILLION of equipment.

Hummmmmm, and who pays that bill? Oh, the taxpayers of each of those countries…those countries who are already suffering economically under historic inflation and energy shortages.

So maybe we should be thinking and asking something completely different:

  • Who are the least able to pay the taxes that pay for all that military equipment?
  • Who are the least able to pay for heat and electric bills that are spiraling out of control?
  • Who are the least able to pay for gas for their cars?
  • Who are the least able to buy food whose prices are going up weekly?
  • Who is least likely to deal with the economic catastrophe that is taking place in the world?

But…let’s add some of this into the mix:

  • At the same time that the EU is suffering energy shortages, they have drastically curtailed reliable fossil fuel and nuclear energy production.
  • At the same time that the EU is suffering food price inflation, those same government are reducing their own food production capability.
  • At the same time the EU is taking a huge hit economically, they are spending billions of dollars on replacement military equipment.
  • Ditto on all of the above with the USA.

But, there is one problem with the 4 items mentioned directly above…it hasn’t just started since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. In the EU they have been destroying their energy production for several years…same with their food production capability. For the US, some states have been at it for just as long but in hyper-drive for the last 2 years.

And now…one last item of business before I wrap it all up…

  • Who owns all of the new green energy companies?
  • Who owns all of the technology companies providing equipment to the new green energy companies?
  • Who owns all of the corporate farm operations that are still producing the world’s food supply?
  • Who owns all of the world-wide transportation of food and fuel supplies?
  • Who owns the military-industrial complex?

While poor people (lower & middle income) struggle to pay increasing taxes, increasing energy bills, increasing food prices, increasing housing costs, increasing price of EVERYTHING…do the wealthy have that problem?

If you are worth $100million dollars and you lose 20% in the stock market, if you have to pay $200 a month more for gasoline, if your heating bill goes up $175, if you have to pay $65000 for an electric vehicle…does that send you into homelessness? But if you make $65,000 a year and you have to find a way to cover $1,000 a month or more in expenses…how does that work out for you?

So maybe we need to be asking a question more along the lines of…Who is benefiting from the world’s entire situation right now? And maybe another way to put it…Who is making money off the world situation right now, including the war in Ukraine?

Then again, maybe I ask myself…who always benefits from war, inflation, stock market dips, world-wide crisis, etc.?  Well, it’s never the little guy, it’s never the poor, it’s never the military Private on the front line, and it’s never the civilians getting buried!! Nope!! So…hummmmmm…maybe propaganda is preventing us from asking the right questions altogether.

Now, wouldn’t it be terrible, a true tragedy, if we actually knew the right questions to ask…and we just ignored asking them?  I wonder “Why?” that would be.

And then again, do we have the courage to ask the right questions…and then do something about it?

Fear & Panic…STOP IT !

Okay, I get it…there are lots of problems in the world today. There are plenty of problems in our country today…and getting worse by the hour. You can scan the headlines on any news or prepper website and get a huge dose of depression…if that is what you are looking for. I do, I get it…it appears that it is the “end times”…as a case could be made.

Now, let me share with you three lines from a 2-day old personal email I received from Dennis…

“I don’t remember how I found your blog, but I LOVE it. [It’s] not fear porn, as a matter of fact, you keep discouraging that. Thank you for doing what you do, may God bless you going forward.”

His email made stop and think about a problem right now and I wanted to address it. Did you see the message? He was calm, appreciative, and not expressing fear or panic.

Now, let me share with you the story of my newest neighbor. Last winter she was looking for a piece of property that would be a good place to ride out the impending apocalypse. She wanted a place with good neighbors, a sense of community, and out of the way of any marauding golden horde. She purchased a piece of property a couple hundred yards down the road from us. The property is a very decent piece that has lots of potential and can be both safe and productive…and a nice view to boot. She got a good price because she had cash. But then the problems started…all of her own making.

When we were introduced to her by a common neighbor shortly after her purchase, we invited her and her boyfriend to dinner. I need to mention that she is in her early 60’s, divorced, retired, and familiar with prepping. Her boyfriend at the time was a little sketchy.

Over appetizers, dinner, and a post-dinner visit we learned a lot. The primary motivation that she was experiencing, and driving her decision making, was both fear and panic. This was in late February and she was convinced that the world was coming to an end in about 6 weeks’ time. She knew the supply chain was going to seize up and stop entirely, and in the meantime the prices of home building supplies would soar 10 – 20 times their current price…then disappear from stores altogether.

So what did that mean to her in practical terms? She had to get something done right now, right away, before another day passed, because the world was about to end. Yup, fear and panic buying.

No amount of conversation with my wife and I had any meaningful impact on her to calm her fears and help her settle on a more realistic and practical plan. Why? Because who she was listening to, who her experts were, and who her information sources were. She was frequenting doomsday prepper websites, she was associating pretty much with only doomsday people who were also preppers, and she had this preconceived idea in her head regarding reality. Problem was…it wasn’t actual reality…it was her reality…it was all in her head rooted in false or misleading information, not fact-based.

So she ends up 7 months later with only a foundation for a house…and the foundation is terrible…looks like a 3-year old did it. She has most of the building supplies…but the lumber she bought was rough cut so it all has to be recut before it can be used. And it has been sitting out in the weather the entire monsoon season. Her driveway has washed out 3 times. She has no building crew. She has no well and no solar system. She isn’t living on her property yet but she does have 1/3 of the fence completed along the road frontage…that encroaches into the road easement and built with substandard materials. She is down to her last $50,000 and no idea when the framing will get started on the house. No electrical supplies, no plumbing supplies, and no roofing material. And worst of all…she has alienated almost all the neighbors due to her constant requests for help and ignoring recommendations.

So why do I share this with you? Because she started from a position of both fear and panic. And that led her to make horrible and very costly decisions.

For the last week I reviewed a lot of prepper websites and prepper YouTube videos. I read and saw so much absolute crap it was staggering. Everything from the government was making you register your garden with the USDA to the banks were closing now and to get all your money out immediately. And yes, even worse BS than that. And of course there was the usual secret insider information that no one else had access to.

And get this…a man I know, not well at all, ran into me at a local merchant and we chatted for a minute…then came the whispering. He has a friend who knows a retired Army Colonel who worked in Army intelligence. He said that there would be a catastrophic event that would shut down the entire country and cause its collapse within 2-weeks. Ahhhhh yeah, we had that conversation 3-weeks ago.

And I could go on but you know what I am talking about…and you have probably seen the same fear porn that I am talking about. I belonged to an online prepper community for about 10 years, left it several years ago. And over that 10-year span there were relentless predictions of a “catastrophic event that would shut down the entire country and cause its collapse”…and not a single one of them ever even came close to happening…not one…not even close!

Then there were the countless revelations of FEMA concentration camps that had already been built and awaiting citizens to be interned there. Ahhhhh, problem…no one was ever able to give the GPS coordinates to even a single camp…ever! And of course there were the periodic sightings of UN troops already being positioned in the US for the immediate takeover and occupation of the US. Then there were the pictures of military equipment being shipped via rail cars to US locations for the imminent implementation of martial law. Ahhhhh, no. It was normal shipments of military equipment along with National Guard equipment being shipped for training. And let us not forget the invasion of the US by China that a bunch of folks were convinced would occur…and soon (and still are). No amount of fact based information, no amount of reality, no amount of common sense, no amount of actual logistical fact would/could convince them otherwise.

Not only was all of it utter nonsense and not true…it only took up wasted hours and hours and hours of people’s time…and worse yet…it created a growing sense of stress, anxiety, fear, and panic with each new round of those BS crap discussions.

So I ask myself this morning why does this happen, why do people start that crap or participate in it? I think there are a number of reasons:

  1. The people who create this crap like to draw attention to themselves, sound important and think of themselves as relevant.
  2. People like to dwell on the obscure to avoid the demands of the here and now.
  3. It is an escape from reality…like watching a Stars Wars movie.
  4. It creates controversy, which in turn creates attention, which causes response. And that results in video views (which makes money) and causes increased discussion in forums (which makes money).

The real concern/issue is…when it comes to the prepper world it causes problems…BIG problems. Why?

  1. Causes distractions from what people should be doing.
  2. Causes anxiety and a sense of anxiousness…and that may lead to poor decision making.
  3. Can produce fear and panic in people…and that almost always leads to really bad decision making.
  4. Poor/Bad decision making leads to misdirection of valuable resources…such as buying anti-nuclear iodine pills vs expanding food storage…or wasting valuable time involved in nonsense issues.

So once again I am on my soap box speaking out against “fear porn” and those that promote it. I know there are problems right now, some of them rather big ones. And I am not saying to ignore those problems that are actually real and need your attention. To do so would be irresponsible and could well spell trouble.

What I am saying is to settle down, calm down, ignore all the static out there, quit listening to the doomsday folks, disregard the “insider information”, stop escaping reality for all the stupid junk being talked about. Pay attention to that still small voice inside you…but you can’t hear it very well with all the static swirling around in your head…and on your computer or phone screen. Get rid of the old static and ignore any new static.

Go about your prepping in a systematic and thoughtful way based on clear and valid principles. Make decisions based on reality, quality information from reliable sources, and never ever make decisions based on fear or panic. For if you do…those decisions will be bad decisions…and those decisions will waste your valuable time and your valuable resources.

Now is the time to focus…and stay focused. Don’t be stupid, and don’t make stupid decisions/choices. Do those things that you know are right and that make sense.

Be wise.

Some excellent words of wisdom…

Random Dots…

The Catholic Church is, and has been, leading the charge against infanticide, otherwise known as abortion. I have seen them on corners with posters supporting the right to life and they have poured millions and millions of dollars into the fight to protect babies. There latest effort was waged in Kansas. Thank you to the Catholic Church for all you do to protect the unborn!

Biden’s infamous and demonic September 1st speech wasn’t well received by anyone other than the most left-wing, violence prone, radical Progressives in America. 56% opposed his speech and said it was inappropriate, 54% said his speech was divisive. So if you love authoritarianism, if you love radical leftist ideology, if you hate patriotism and the Constitution…then you love Biden and his horrific speech.

On September 14th top Democratic leaders said that those who question the FBI, IRS, DOJ, and other federal agencies put federal employees “in grave danger and at risk of violence.” Well now, so what exactly did Biden do on September 1st when he called half the country “enemies of the state” during his ranting madman speech? So if you don’t question the actions of the federal government you are a great American and love Biden and love the Democratic Party. Well then, what does that make me?  And you?

Also on September 14th Biden announced a new federal website…to help you get tax credits for going green. I guess being a radical inefficient green energy lover takes taxpayer money to make any sense. So if you want to buy an average electric vehicle it requires the federal government handing out money…other people’s hard earned money. And let’s take a look at what they stated, ‘retail price of $80,000 for pickup trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles (SUVs), and $55,000 other vehicles, including sedans.’ So let me get this straight…if you can afford to buy a $55,000 – $80,000 EV, then you need government assistance. I guess that means “going green” only works for the rich and if the rich receive government welfare. Nice!

On September 13th, MyPillow chief executive Mike Lindell, while at Hardees, in the drive-thru lane, FBI agents pounced on him and seized his cell phone. They said he was under suspicion for some vague charge of voter irregularities. Remember way back on September 12th, the day before the Lindell Raid I outlined what the DOJ & FBI were up to. Then the next morning I issued the Immediate Action Warning? Yeah, and as part of that warning I said this, “High-profile raids and arrests of Trump supporters, preppers, conservatives, and higher-profile individuals for messaging  and intimidation purposes.” Well then, let’s make this connection… Lindell is a big Trump supporter, a high-profile conservative, and a large financial donner to conservative and Republican causes. Hummm…and they raid him at a Hardees, in their parking lot, in the middle of the day, in a most public way. Intimidation and messaging perhaps?

On September 5th, the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF), suggested general crop yields could be down by as much as a third compared with last year. The California rice harvest is half what it would be in a normal year. Texas, the primary cotton producer, said they have lost at least 70% of their cotton crop. Another crop taking a huge hit is sorghum, primarily used for animal feed, and that will impact the price of meat products. California farmers have virtually given up on most of their strawberries, tomatoes, lettuces, and melons. The USDA and a major corn grower group have given really, really bad estimates on the corn crop yield for this year. And the “consumer food” corn quality is down notably. And according to the AFBF “wheat has taken a walloping this year.” California tomato farmers have reported a reduction in acres grown…from 2020 – 2021 a 55% reduction, from 2021 – 2022 a 41% reduction. So, from 2020 to this year they have cut tomato production acres by 73%!! Now, have you noticed the price of tomatoes going up in the stores? Some more numbers; potato crop down 5%, carrots down 45%, sweet corn down 20%, peaches down 15%…and on and on. Remember my article back on August 9th, “Garden: Let’s Talk a Minute…” I talked about preparing to garden for next year. In that article I said, “I want to strongly encourage you to have a garden next year…as large as practical and as your situation will allow. And maybe push it just a little bit past that mark.” Please consider that request.

On September 6th, when an individual objected to something Biden said at a town meeting security immediately moved in to throw him out. But that wasn’t good enough for Biden; Biden commented “Let him go,” Biden said. “Look, everybody’s entitled to be an idiot.” How’s that for being presidential and trying to unify the country! Oh, and then after Biden’s outrageous slam…security threw him out. A dark heart, demonic, just as I said in my article “Herr Biden’s September 1st Speech”.

Today, September 15th, it was announced by major pharmaceutical companies that Adderall, used for treating ADD & ADHD, is experiencing extreme shortages as demand soars. And why exactly would demand for that particular drug “soar”????? Huummmm…..

Also today, September 15th, a foreign media company released information that Customs and Border Patrol (CBP), part of DHS, can access seized phones without a warrant. Yup, how’s that for by-passing the 4th Amendment, as well as due process! And for you Progressives reading this…the 4th Amendment is part of the Bill of Rights which is part of the US Constitution. You know…that thing you guys, along with authoritarians, hate so much. Yessiree…your federal government at work for you! And think about this…why didn’t this story come from an American media outlet? Huummmm…..

Then on September 12th, Tim Ryan (Democrat), running against J.D. Vance (Republican) for Ohio’s open United States Senate seat said that MAGA folks need to be “confronted”…and if that wasn’t enough, he also they needed to be “killed”, referring to the entire movement. I guess that Tim Ryan is in perfect step with Joe Biden…frightening…or comical…I am not sure which. But, is Tim Ryan now being investigated for making terrorist threats against US citizens? I doubt it…it’s Biden’s weaponized DOJ supporting Democrats.

Let’s end this going back to electric vehicles and Biden’s view of Americans…

So on Tuesday September 14th Biden was pushing the high-end Cadillac Lyriq EV. Yeah, he kinda gave the impression that any American could afford to buy one…at well over $60,000 each. Then he continued the joke session by inviting people to ride with him. Sorry, no. I only carry a single handkerchief with me…and it would take far more than one handkerchief to keep wiping the drool from Biden’s chin, even going around the block. How many average Americans does he think can afford a $60,000 car in this hyper-inflation economy where wages are taking a beating?


This was something different for me, I hope you enjoyed it…or at least tolerated it. Something a little less daunting and stressful for me.

Yup!!!  That is a “My Pillow” under my head 🙂

Full Disclosure & Humor Attempt Alert: That is not really a picture of me, and not really a picture of a My Pillow.

IMPORTANT: It’s Here…It’s Happening…and they are telling us what’s next…

9/11 is a day that is very tough on me. I was a firefighter that day, I saw my brothers and sisters die when the towers burned and collapsed. I spent many days and nights holed up in our fire station waiting for the other shoe to drop. For months and years afterwards I was reminded of that day during quiet contemplative times alone crying. At other times it was during remembrance ceremonies where wonderful community members brought up the past and inadvertently caused internal pain and anguish that I still can’t describe or explain. It came rushing back this year on 9/11…but it was shock, then despair, then disbelief, then rage, then a commitment to speak my mind about what is happening and by whom.

On Sunday, 9/11, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas gave an interview. It was one of the most horrific, disgusting, and yet telling statements ever made by a US government official. How “telling”? Listen to his words…

“Back when 9/11 occurred, in those years we were very focused on the foreign terrorist, the individual who sought to do a severe harm to enter the United States and do us harm…” but now “we are seeing an emerging threat, of course, over the last several years of the domestic violent extremist…the individual here in the United States radicalized to violence…an ideology of hate, anti-government sentiment, false narratives propagated on online platforms.”

So who is he talking about? According to DHS, DOJ, and the FBI they are talking specifically about…anyone who objects to government actions, doesn’t believe government propaganda…basically anyone who doesn’t implicitly trust the federal government ANYTHING!

He even went so far as to state those people are “terrorists” if they believe in the very same ideology that our Founding Fathers did…or display virtually ANY symbol of the American Revolution. A revolution, may I remind you, that freed us from the tyranny of a dictatorial King.

Do not forget that in March of 2022 Mayorkas called domestic extremism the country’s greatest terror-related threat.

Let there be no mistake, the DOJ, DHS, and FBI use 188 indicators to show who the violent domestic extremists are. Some of those terrorist red flags are:

  • Anyone who thinks the government is too big and too powerful.
  • Anyone who believes in the rapture.
  • Members of the Constitution Party.FBI & DHS report on rightwing extrmeism and domestic terrorists
  • Anyone who opposes illegal immigration.
  • Anyone who believes that the Federal Reserve is illegitimate.
  • Anyone who believes that income tax is illegitimate.
  • Anyone who disagrees with the International Monetary Fund.
  • Anyone who believes the federal government has too much power or authority
  • Anyone who believes the government is responsible for economic problems
  • Anyone who is a member of the Ladies of Liberty Alliance
  • Anyone who supports the Second Amendment
  • Anyone who wants the government to strictly abide by the Constitution
  • Anyone who thinks that US agents (FBI & ATF) burned down the Davidians compound in Waco, TX
  • Anyone who believes that government personnel intentionally killed people (wife/mother & child) at Ruby Ridge
  • Anyone who maintains that county sheriffs are the highest legitimate law enforcement authorities; and those who do are violent and anti-Semitic
  • Anyone who believes in, or supports, Posse Comitatus Act
  • Anyone who advocates or champions patriot ideals or principles
  • Anyone who thinks the Executive Branch of government is growing too strong
  • Anyone who thinks there is dangerous increase in government power over the American people
  • Anyone who believes in armed resistance should the government decide to forcefully confiscate guns
  • Any civilian who wears camouflage and a “Don’t Tread on Me” patch
  • Anyone who speaks derogatorily of the Department of Homeland Security
  • Anyone who opposes BLM actions against the Bundy family
  • Anyone who opposes Common Core
  • Anyone who opposes Agenda 21 or who thinks it is a “conspiracy”

That’s just a partial list of their guidelines…there were 188 indicators just a few years ago…now they include anyone who loves and supports and even displays this…

or this…

So what the hell…Count me in!

Yeah, but don’t think Mayorkas is alone, Senator Mark Warner (D-Va.), the Senate Intelligence Committee chairman said this on Sunday…

“[He] worries about domestic threats…the stunning thing to me is here we are 20 years later, and the attack on the symbol of our democracy was not coming from terrorists, but it came from literally insurgents attacking the Capitol on Jan. 6.”

Then Vice President Harris in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press” which also aired on Sunday, called domestic terrorism “very dangerous,” saying it makes the country “weaker.”

And to further their attack…the House in May passed a bill that would create domestic terrorism offices throughout the federal government.

Why does this have me so upset? Come on!!! Think about this…

  1. The FBI, DOJ, and DHS have all preppers, all patriots, most Christians, all…well just about all the decent people in the United States who love rights, liberties, and freedoms labeled as “violent”, “extremists”, “terrorists”, “threats”, and “insurgents”. And those are very important designations. Those terms, by law, justify any and all actions, including lethal actions, by federal agencies without the due process or rule of law.
  2. If you even display a Betsy Ross flag, or a “Don’t Tread On Me” flag you are considered a violent militia extremist.
  3. The head of the DHS has identified half of the USA as a “domestic violent extremist” based on DHS guidelines and his official directions to the department.
  4. The President of the United States has declared that all members of the Republican Party, anyone who supports the MAGA agenda, or anyone who voices opposition to him as a “threat” to the US.
  5. President Biden demonized Republicans to the point stating that they are “enemies of the state”…remember that!?
  6. How about when President Biden said that anyone on the right is a “clear and present danger” to the US…remember that?!?!
  7. Remember when Biden railed against political opposition, rights, freedoms, and liberties for the last 6 months…calling for action against those folks who were seen as threats and embraced that extremist ideology!?!?!?

Those statements are NOT political rhetoric…they are the precursor for extreme federal law enforcement actions.

But back to Sunday’s Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas speech…He has laid the final plank in the groundwork for action against US citizens who the federal government has been identifying and demonizing for years. And they have been working overtime the last six months to turn the tide in the propaganda war against anyone who disagrees with or challenges the federal government.

Think what other authoritarian governments have demonized entire segments of their population. Now, think of what the outcomes were when they did so.

Exactly a week ago I posted my article on Biden’s September 1st speech; in that article I referenced a “2022 Kristallnacht”. When I look at the totality of Biden’s violent and inflammatory speeches, the DOJ/FBI/DHS actions and statements/memos, and the extreme rhetoric coming out of the Democrat leadership in Congress…it has become clear it is coming. But yesterday Mayorkas laid it out…the final nail in the coffin if you will…the US federal government is at war with US citizens…and it is about to get Police State Militarization Of Policeviolent, very violent, and ugly beyond the comprehension of most people in the US.

At some point soon, I don’t know when exactly, the US federal government is going to go “bare knuckle” violent on all those they have painstakingly identified as a “threat”…and that is a long list of citizens.

I am truly sorry for not being able to give you a better estimate on the “when” part of this. It could be this week, this month, or this year. I don’t think it will be long though. I am 80 – 85% confident that our own USA version of Kristallnacht is coming and it coming at the hands of the FBI with the intelligence and logistical support of DHS, along with the legal justification from the DOJ. And yes, the ATF will be involved as well but in a peripheral way.

The ATF will start coming for multiple gun purchasers…oh, they already have. The FBI will come for some low hanging fruit first…like the “1/6 insurgents”…oh, they already have. And they will come for political opposition team members such as Trump staffers…oh, they already have. For sure they will come for major political opposition figures like Trump…oh, they already have.

But the big question…”Who is next?”

I want you to think about…

First they came for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time there was no one
left to speak up for me.

Written by Martin Niemoller, Nazi resistance member while Hitler was coming to power. He was a preacher in Nazi Germany and was arrested in 1937 by the Gestapo after a church service in which he preached. He was sent to a concentration camp where he stayed until being rescued by the Allies in June of 1945.

We see clearly, indisputably, that the US government has gone, and is going, down the same path…demonizing and forcibly suppressing any political opposition. Further, they have not only militarized US federal law enforcement agencies…we see they have weaponized them against US citizens. We see where the US federal government has taken the DOJ’s mission “…to uphold the rule of law, to keep our country safe, and Militarized police, police stateto protect civil rights…” and turned it into an offensive tool/system to suppress any and all political opposition…even when such opposition aligns with the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the fundamental principles of the Founding Fathers.

I have spoken many times about this subject…I have told you it was coming. On September 5th I told you it was here. I am telling you now…they have dropped any pretense of constitutionality, civility, justice, or restraint. They have fully embraced their next step…they are on the move…it is real…and it is here.

“First they came for…”

What are you doing to prepare…because prepare you must. Prayer should be the first thing you do.

Who is Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas?

Mayorkas was born in Cuba to Jewish parents, grew up in Beverly Hills, California and attended Beverly Hills High School. He attended college at the University of California, Berkeley. In 1998 Senator Dianne Feinstein, authoritarian and Progressive, recommended him, and he was appointed by President Bill Clinton as the United States Attorney for the Central District of California.

In late 2000, Mayorkas advocated to obtain executive clemency for narcotics trafficker Carlos Vignali Jr., the son of a wealthy Los Angeles businessman. On his last day in office in January 2001, Clinton commuted Vignali’s 15-year prison sentence as per Mayorkas’ request.

In 2008 Obama named him as head of his transition team for the U.S. Department of Justice. Under Obama in 2014 he became Deputy Secretary of DHS.

In 2015 a Department of Homeland Security inspector general report found Mayorkas’ guilty of corruption in the oversight of the EB-5 investor visa program. Mayorkas had given special priority treatment under the program, backed by then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Reid, a well-known corrupt Senator from Nevada who was a dedicated authoritarian and Progressive, an “insider” of monumental proportions.

Rather than being sent to prison, Mayorkas was rewarded by Biden with his appointment as head of the DHS in February 2021. It should be noted that this special treatment/advocacy for entry visas centered almost exclusively on those entering from China. And it has already been proven that Joe and Hunter Biden are financially involved with the Communist Party in China.

In 2022 Mayorkas oversaw the formation of the anti-1st Amendment DHS “Disinformation Governance Board” and was called “a traitor to the Constitution” by members of Congress. He has consistently rejected oversight by Congress, even going so far as to flatly refuse to answer oversight committee member questions regarding the potentially unconstitutional actions of DHS.

Under Obama it was Mayorkas who implemented “cages” for detainees in detention facilities at the southern border. Mayorkas is also a radical “open-border” advocate…and that policy has resulted in a huge increase in border crossings by dangerous criminal elements, foreign terrorists, cartel killers, and a historic spike in border crossing deaths as a result of that policy.

For me, IMO, there is no other conclusion that Mayorkas is little more than a political hack that is dedicated to an authoritarian and totally corrupt US federal government. It is obvious he believes that the federal government is little more than a weapon of power to be used to advance the democratic agenda and their financial interests. And that shouldn’t surprise you considering he was raised in the socialist state of California, educated in one of the most radical left-wing universities in the USA, and a lap dog goon for multiple presidents virtually his entire career.

However, since Mayorkas is now head of the largest armed federal government agency…he is extremely dangerous and a dedicated henchman for those that seek to turn the United States into a totalitarian state.

And here is the irony…at the beginning of the article I mentioned he was the son of Jewish parents. I am sure that some thought that statement represented an anti-Semitic philosophy on my part. No, it was to set the stage for this…

Mayorkas’ father was born in Cuba, but his father’s family fled the Ottoman Empire to avoid persecution of Jews. Mayorkas’ mother was a Romanian Jew whose family escaped the Holocaust and fled to Cuba during WWII. So here we have a person whose family endured and suffered persecution from authoritarian dictatorial fascist governments. And one generation later…it is Mayorkas who now fills the role of the oppressor of freedoms, liberties, and rights as part of an authoritarian dictatorial fascist government. How ironic.

And this man is the head of Department of Homeland Security…with their 240,000+ employees, 165,000 armed personnel it makes it the equivalent of the 19th largest army in the world. How exactly does that make you feel?

Oh, and Hitler referred to Nazi Germany throughout his time there with the term “homeland“? How exactly does that make you feel about the role of DHS in America?

I know how it makes me feel. I also know that history repeats itself. I also know what the definition of fascist is.

Herr Biden’s September 1st Speech

I had a very clear interpretation of what Biden’s September 1st “anti-MAGA” speech was. It was a clarifying moment for me. But, more on that a little later in this post. For now…let me share a couple things with you. First, I waited till today to share my thoughts and opinions because I wanted to give myself time to internalize what I saw and what I feel.

I didn’t want to do a kneejerk thing like so many others have done, and there was research that had to happen. And I wanted to ensure that I was accurate and on point…because this was a pivotal moment in the history of the United States and any objective historical account will treat his speech as a defining event in the transformation of the United States of America.

A little background…

Political speeches are usually predictable, void of logic, and rather boring…but occasionally, albeit rarely, they are historic in nature. The best of political speeches are motivational. Martin Luther’s “I Have a Dreamspeech in 1963 is one of those remarkable historical events in my lifetime. King appealed to people’s emotion for a change of heart, change of mind, and a change in direction of not just America but the world. A soul stirring transformational moment in US history if there ever was one.

Then there is Winston Churchill’s 1940 speech to the British people as they were losing the war “…we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender…” That speech was part of turning the tide for the British and enabled their state of mind to carry on the struggle against Nazi Germany when all seemed lost.

Since politics is a business, the speaker must motivate people to do as the speaker wishes…even if it is against the listener’s morality. The primary method of doing so is called “pathos”…the Greek word for emotions. In other words, you bypass a person’s mind and appeal to a person’s emotions to do as the speaker wishes. The best politicians are masters at this…whether for good or evil.

Few can deny that Hitler was a motivational speaker…look what evil he managed to get Germans to do starting as early as 1920’s covering the next two decades. He was nearly as strong a force for evil as King and Churchill were for good.

There are two additional methods for speeches and to get people to do as speaker wishes; ethos and logos. Ethos is where the speaker has such a level of credibility and quality of character that merely the character/reputation of the person speaking is enough to motivate people into action. Jesus Christ would be the ultimate example of such a speaker. Logos is using logic as a motivational tool in speaking or writing to persuade people to think or act as desired. And yes…logic is usually the most boring and dull method of speech giving.

Now, for Biden and his “anti-MAGA” speech a few days ago…

I tuned in to watch Biden speak to America…I figured it would be entertaining at the very least. I was wrong, dead wrong. The dramatic setting, Hollywood style intro, and the production overall was so over the top I actually thought I was watching a dystopian movie. As quickly as that thought hit me, it was obvious that is not just a dystopian movie…but a post-apocalyptic movie based on 1984. And then it got worse…Biden opened his mouth over and over again.

The more Biden talked, or more accurately, the more Biden ranted, the scarier the speech got. I have watched a lot of historical Hitler speech films and reenactments…and Biden fit a mold that gave me chills to the center of my soul. The only thing I could think of…Biden was giving a speech to motivate a 2022 Kristallnacht (crystal night). But this one would be different than the November 9 – 10, 1938 horror filled night in Nazi Germany…this one Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunchwould be directed towards some of our own American citizens in the name of Biden’s democracy.

I never thought in my lifetime would I hear such utter evil come out of an American President’s mouth. The hate, the lies, the call to arms against fellow Americans…all for a political purpose. It was disgusting and as un-American as ever a speech was. Remember the last four words in the definition of fascism, “…forcible suppression of opposition.”

Let me pause for a moment and share full disclosure…I held my nose and voted for Trump twice. Yes, that means I voted for the lesser of two evils twice. And I apologize for that. I have spoken repeatedly of principles over politics and my voting in 2016 and again in 2020 shows my hypocrisy. But the associated self-loathing associated with those votes motivated me to since clarify my views on principles vs politics. I am no Trump lover, let alone a Trump worshiper, as so many people are these days. I objectively see the good he did (i.e. the economy) and the crap he did (i.e. CAF, deficit spending, and anti-2nd Amendment) and the junk he spewed (i.e. ”lock her up”). So this post is not some Biden hating…ra, ra pro-Trump diatribe.

Back to Herr Biden…

Let’s review the definition of fascism, “a political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.”

Biden’s speech was nothing more than an attempt to, through the use of force to, eliminate a large partisan opponent on the American political scene. The dramatic setting, the presence of the US military, the rhetoric, the vitriol, and the outright lies spewed were overwhelmingly horrific. But, for an America that has been dumbed down, reeducated, and coerced into believing the macabre…it was pretty effective…at least for the Democrats, leftists, Progressives, liberals, and many on the Republican side as well.

The melodramatic theatrical aspect of the speech was obvious and it is reported that Jon Meacham was the primary force behind it all. And if true, would make sense. Jon Meacham is a very radical, far left political operative disguised as a journalist and author. He has been aligned with radical leftist ideology for virtually his entire life. But worse than that…he is devoted to the authoritarian cause. He even wrote a book idolizing President Andrew Jackson…one of the darkest and most evil political powers to ever hold the office of President of the United States. One thing Jon Meacham knows how to do…he knows how to write well and put on a great show…and he did so for Biden.

Wrapped all together…Biden’s speech was nothing more than an attempt to crush the MAGA movement in the most dedicated fascist style because Biden believes in a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader and he sees himself as just that.

But a single speech does not make a country or leader qualify as fascist. So what does?

Here is a partial list of dates Biden endorsed a police state and fascism:

  • August 30th – called for unquestioned loyalty to the FBI and denigrated anyone who  questions a police state. He called on Congress to violate the 2nd Amendment. He sounded violent and deranged.
  • August 25th – called on Congress to violate the 2nd Amendment.
  • July 11 – called on Congress to violate the 2nd Amendment.
  • June 2nd – called on Congress to violate the 2nd Amendment. He declares that the 2nd Amendment isn’t even valid.
  • April 7th – called on Congress to violate the 2nd Amendment.
  • March 24th – called on Congress to violate the 2nd Amendment.
  • March 1st – called on Congress to violate the 2nd Amendment. He declares that the 2nd Amendment isn’t even valid.

And let’s not ignore:

  • September 1st – calls Republicans a “clear and present danger” to the US. Calls for violence against MAGA ideology and its followers.
  • August 30th – claims MAGA followers do not support the rule of law and labeled them fascists. He further claims that the MAGA organization threatens the lives of FBI personnel/employees. He expresses extremist support for a police state.
  • August 25th – calls MAGA movement extremists and semi-fascists.
  • May 4th – Calls MAGA followers extremists and the most extreme anti-American organization ever in the history of the USA.

And let’s remember that:

  • The Obama/Biden FBI injected actual, literal spies into the 2016 Trump campaign.
  • The Obama/Biden FBI & DOJ lied to a secret court regarding Trump.
  • The Obama/Biden FBI pursued and “leaked” the whole fake Russiagate scandal in coordination with the Clinton campaign.
  • Then it was the FBI that headed the coup against Trump.
  • Then the FBI suppressed the Biden investigation that almost certainly handed the 2020 election to Biden.
  • Lest we forget…the FBI’s relentless persecution of many of Trump’s former advisors and staff…beyond anything ever seen in the history of the US.

Notice a pattern here?

So you bring all of this together and it is a clear and obvious convergence of a political ideology and government actions that displays:

  • Extreme support for a strong central government.
  • Strong support for an autocratic government.
  • Attempts at extensive and severe economic regimentation.
  • A virtual unchecked power for the government to dictate social organization and control.

Now, add to all of that:

  • Biden’s calls for Congress to violate the 2nd Amendment and his exercising other unconstitutional powers where he has shown that he sees himself as having dictatorial power.
  • Then on September 1st calls a large portion of US voting citizens a “clear & present danger” to the country. That is a unambiguous call for the “forcible suppression of opposition.”

When you add the totality of Biden’s speeches over the last 6 months he is clearly and undeniably trying to demonize and suppress all actual political opposition from Trump, conservatives, and most Republicans. Then you add in the police state actions of the FBI, DOJ, ATF, and US Marshalls…well, that again pretty obviously points to “forcible suppression of opposition” while confirming the US federal government is an “autocratic government” in every way.

That means…we have a fascist government led by a fascist President. And that is proven by their actions and their own stated ideology. It is not opinion…it is fact reinforced by hard evidence.

Now, back to my impression of Herr Biden’s September 1st speech…when you combine the non-verbal message of the blood red background and the military lurking in the shadows…it reeks of something out of the book 1984. When I listened to Biden’s fiery fascist rhetoric it reminded me of Hitler’s speeches plain as day.

As I see it his speech was a transformational step encompassing all of the prior displays of fascist ideology with his blatant quest for more presidential power…and a more autocratic centralized US federal governmental exercising power and control. The US federal government, the President, the liberals/democrats/progressives/RINOs and many others no longer hide their fascism.

And Biden’s speech should scare the hell out of most people and be a major concern for all preppers, conservatives, libertarians, patriots, Constitutionalists, etc. The radical authoritarians have come out of the shadows, they are no longer masking their intentions, they are now on full display for who they are and what their intentions are.

I have been telling you for years that it was coming…well, it is now here!

And fascism is a subcategory of authoritarianism.

Some notes for any crazies reading this:

  • I am not a Republican, nor a Trump lover/supporter.
  • I believe in principles over politics.
  • I only politically support three things…the US Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the fundamental principles of our Founding Fathers.
  • I don’t look at politics as Republican vs Democrat or left vs right…there is only tyranny vs freedom.
  • I think Trump did some good stuff like the economy and energy independence.
  • I think Trump sucked on supporting the US Constitution via his opposition to due process and his anti-2nd Amendment actions. And his child-like rantings were unbecoming the office of President. And his obsession with demonizing the media was unhealthy and unwise for our country and the 1st Amendment.
  • I don’t think all Democrats are evil, I think the Democratic Party is evil and their ideology represents evil.
  • I believe that the Republicans are almost as guilty as the Democrats in our sad state of affairs in the US.
  • And finally, Joe Biden is mentally incompetent and is not running our country. He can’t tie his own shoes and takes directions from the Easter Bunny…so who is running the US?

I believe that list of notes should help all the crazies hate me even more…and maybe even pick up a few new crazies and haters.

But folks…you better figure out what you believe in, what your principles are, where your ethics stand, and what your commitment to the US Constitution (rights/freedoms/liberties) really is. Then compare that to how committed our Founding Fathers were…

“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.”

Figure out who you are…do it quickly…the time is drawing shorter…much shorter. Once you have yourself figured out…PREPARE!! Do not delay.

Civil war, right-wing extremists, fascists, and riots…

  • So have you noticed how much the left-wing media has started talking about “civil war”?
  • Do you remember that just recently the FBI went full-on war against conservatives and patriots?
  • Why did a US Marshal SWAT team raid an Amish farm?
  • Did you hear that the media said Lindsey Graham called for riots?
  • Did you hear when Crazy Joe Biden called Republicans and their platform “semi-fascism”?

Yeah, me too. So what does it all mean?

To get the full picture you have to also see that the ATF is now going house-to-house for a variety of

< click to enlarge >

anti-Second Amendment reasons. Then here is the FBI & DOJ who have embarked on a committed program of demonizing anyone and everyone who is conservative, a patriot, a libertarian, or simply believes in the fundamental rights, liberties, and freedoms outlined in the Constitution. The FBI has even gone so far as to raid a former Presidents house! That has never, ever even been considered for any other former President even when the FBI and DOJ knew that there were significant national security crimes involved. And the list goes on and on with what federal government authorities have been doing. And it ties directly into the cooperation/coordination with the leftist media.

This is pretty important…before I go on let’s review “fascism” and what it actually means since Crazy Joe called half the country that. In the most unbiased and objective definition, fascism means “a political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.”

Yeah, forget all the bullshit definitions that include a reference to “right-wing” or “far right” because those terms, and others similar to them, are added via bias and to advance a specific political agenda of those adding those terms.

So what party does the term “fascism” sound like it applies to more…Republican or Democrat? Test it…does California (D) or Iowa (R) sound more fascist in terms of their state governments? Or, you can think about the former President’s FBI SWAT raid on his home and the large number of the former President’s staff and advisors that have been SWAT raided by the FBI over the last 1-1/2 years…yes? “…forcible suppression of opposition.”

Now to be fair, Republicans are almost as big of advocates of fascism as Democrats. A person only has to look at what the Republican elected officials have done over the last 130 years and it becomes clear that they are in on it. But, Democrats do win the title of “Most Fascist” in their beliefs, advocacy, and actions.

OK…let me get back on track here…Why the original questions and why did I ask you, “What does this all mean?”

In my opinion…Looking at the total picture and the accelerated pace that the federal law federal police militarized police police stateenforcement agencies are working against the 2nd Amendment and all things conservative, patriotic, and Constitutional…I see America’s situation getting to a very, very dangerous point for our country and for those of us that identify as patriot, libertarian, or conservative. Basically anyone who advocates for, believes in, or does any of the 188 signs that all federal law enforcement agencies, as well as the DOJ, point towards as signs of being a domestic terrorist. And they are now treating folks as such on a regular basis…and it will get worse.

I see a quickening pace of federal law enforcement going after folks, and I expect they will expand who they go after and do so with extreme actions to make very high-profile examples of the as a message to others. I expect to see these goons coming up with every possible excuse to invade people’s homes with and without search warrants. In any interaction or confrontation they will escalate the situation trying to provoke violent responses to further justify their actions, mainly the use of deadly force. I expect to see more and more absurd charges by these agencies to demonize whoever they wish to attack next. Messaging will become increasingly more important to the FBI than any alleged misdoings.

The media has been, but will increase its use of, radicalized reporting to show any conservative/patriot/libertarian in the worst possible light…especially when it comes to Second Amendment related issues. Additionally in these matters, the media will glorify DOJ and law enforcement actions with terms such a “protecting democracy”, “keeping us safe”, “providing security”, “acting without fear or favor”, etc. Of course, none of that will be true…the media is more about advancing their common agenda.

I also expect to see an increase in the “Bubba Effect” from those on the right, those who have become radicalized, and the mentally ill. Some individuals, and potentially groups, will respond to the increase in federal law enforcement activities with violence of their own. And that will further justify the intrusive and violent actions of law enforcement, especially federal law enforcement using justification terms such as “violent domestic terrorist”, “violent militia extremist”, “Christian Nationalist”, “White Nationalist”, etc.

I want you to understand something very plainly and clearly…this is not a gradual increase I am talking about. And this is not an incremental increase either. This is a significant increase by a full exponential factor! This is the next step in their agenda…and it is a deadly step.

I do not expect to see this major step come to full fruition until after the 2022 elections. Between now and the elections in November 2022 they will use some of this step’s tactics to sway public opinion in an effort to influence/control the election. Yes, just as the FBI did in 2020 when they influenced social media to the extent that Trump was declared the presidential election loser. Yes, just like the FBI/CIA/DOJ did in 2016 when they tried to throw the election to Clinton via the anti-Trump “Russia-gate” hoax.

Once the 2022 elections are complete…then Watch Out! I believe with a probability of 90% that this is when they will make their move to complete the transformation of America. And they will want it completed prior to the 2024 presidential election.

Now, two qualifications…1) should the Republicans win one or both houses of Congress then I see their plan could be thwarted a bit. No, not stopped, not at all. But, the Republicans may decide to pause the plan long enough for them to be the power force in the transformation vs the Democrats. 2) there could be an event that I will not discuss at this time that could forestall their plans.

So here is my bottom line to you…Do what you have to do to be prepared for this eventuality. Because it is coming and coming very soon. It has been building for 130 years but I believe we are at the final stage of their transformation plan. Nothing has stopped it yet…it has been successfully implemented so far by both party’s elected and unelected officials in Washington DC and in various state capitals around the country.

There is nothing that I see at this point that can or will stop it. You must be prepared for it! Your family, your neighborhood, your congregation, your community can be an oasis of Constitutional principles…but you have to prepare for that. Do so now.

Relax Already!

stuff that makes AH Trimble's head explodeLet’s go to Trimble’s fantasy land for a minute…and relate a story to a current event.

So here you are, you and your spouse are competing in a National Greatest Parent competition. You need all the votes you can get to receive that very prestigious award and the multi-million dollar prize that goes with it. But you think you are lacking about 5 votes to win. Hummmmm…what do you do for those last 5 votes???

Then you have a flash of brilliance…you know how to get the last 5 votes and maybe a couple extra…YOUR CHILDREN (15 of them)! But, there is one small problem…your 7 biological children are not real happy with you because you haven’t really been keeping your promises lately and they just kinda struggle with you in general terms. But, you know you probably can’t make them be loyal to you, you can’t make them love you, but you how to get their vote…you are determined to win Nation Greatest Parent!!

See, back about 10 years ago you lent each biological child a lot of money over 4 years…lent them each $37,667*. Yes, you had an agreement that they would pay you back the money but you really haven’t worried about them paying the money back. Why? Because you are very, very rich and the money they repay you is a very tiny fraction of 1% of the income you make each year. And no worries at all…you borrow money every year anyways. See, even though you are very rich and makes lots of money, you borrow money each year in order to pay your bills.

Actually, you are so not worried about them paying you back, that over 2 years ago… you told them stop making payment for a couple of years just to help them get through this whole COVID nonsense. And it was so nice of you to do…some of them bought a new house, bought a new car, and some even took a great vacation just this year to Disneyland for National Pride Month.

And all of that has been amazing for you and your kids! See, each one of them is married and the combined income for each couple is $184,648…… per year. They certainly needed the help!

So your plan is going to work…you will “give” them (debt forgiveness) each $10,000 – $20,000 and they will vote for you this year so you can win the National Greatest Parent title that means so much to you.

But, you have an even bigger plan…in 2 years they are having Greatest Parent of the Universe competition. And you know that to get their vote for that…you will forgive all of the money they owe you. You smile to yourself…you are brilliant!!

Get my drift?


So, back to reality, let’s review a couple of things:

  • Don’t blame people receiving the debt forgiveness, it wasn’t their decision. And, I doubt you would give back a $10,000 or $20,000 check that the US government sent to you.
  • No “expert” has a clue how much this stroke of the pen will eventually amount to. But, it will be in the hundreds of billions.
  • It will not add to inflation. Recipients haven’t had to make payments for two years now…so there will be virtually no “new” money going into the economy. For each person…the $10k forgiveness amounts to well under $200 per month…not an inflation feeding amount.
  • There doesn’t have to be a mechanism to “pay for” this debt forgiveness. It is a debt, not an added welfare payment…there is no money being sent out. The government will simply remove hundreds of billions of dollars from the ”asset” side of federal government bookkeeping…no money going out. Hence, no need to pay for the program.
  • Vote buying is a corrupt election practice that obstructs our voting process by impeding the exercise of our rights to freely choose our leaders. This move by Biden is simply vote buying to help Democrats keep control of Congress and ensures that everyone sees the power of the US federal government.
  • And no, the Constitution has no authorization for the President to do this. Actually, the Constitution has no authorization for a student loan program to begin with.
  • The US government considers a couple to be “upper-class” if they make $144,251 per year. So Biden’s plan covers all of the upper-class…stretching well into the “rich” category. For a single person the US government considers you “upper-class” at $72,126. So the debt relief program was geared specifically not toward middle-income class at all. The wealthy were targeted for this vote buying debt relief program. The lower income folks, including the middle-income” folks just happened to get swept up in it.

So you knew from the very beginning what this was all about…vote buying. But, now you understand it was also about wealth transfer…moving money from the government to the upper-class income folks. Why else would the government transfer $20,000 – $40,000** to couples making an average of $184,648…… per year?

Oh, one last step back to Trimble’s fantasy land…

About the 8 adopted children that the couple has…well, they never got any “loans” from the parents. And the parents could care less about how they are doing or getting their vote. And no, the parents are not going to give them a single dollar for any reason whatsoever.

Why? They don’t even talk to those kids, don’t know where they live, never send them a Christmas card, and don’t want anything to do with them.

Why? Because those kids made their own way in life, paid for their own education or got a great job as an electrician, computer programmer, plumber, mechanic, firefighter, etc. And those kids aren’t particularly in love with their adopted parents either…because those adoptive parents disowned them a long time ago.

 

Maybe Uncle Joe isn’t so crazy after all.

Then again…

* Average total student loan debt.

… †Federal Student Loan Payment “Pause” Program.

…… Average income for each couple who has student loan debt. Average income for each individual person is $92,324.

** $10,000 per each person debt relief standard. $20,000 debt relief for those who received Pell Grants.
