TIP: Dental Floss

Dental floss as suture in an emergency.note: first appeared September 2015

Dental floss is a good substitute for suture material in emergencies.

Yup!  If you need suture material and you are out, go looking for dental floss.

And hint……..dental floss is a whole lot cheaper than suture material.Sutures

Just make sure you have suture needles on hand.  Yes, they can be re-used if you sterilize the needle in between use.

And another hint…only buy and use curved suture needles.

TIP: If your water supply is failing fill your bathtub and…

Water Main Broken city water supply failsnote: first published in September 2015

If your water supply is failing but there is still running water, fill your:

  • bathtubs
  • sinks
  • buckets
  • trash cansfill any container with water
  • pot & pans,
  • bowls
  • water bottles
  • jars
  • glasses

Fill anything that will hold water. You can figure out how to store it and purify it later, but for now just fill up anything at all that can hold water. Water is priceless and the single highest priority for sustaining life.WaterBOB = water storage of 100gal

A WaterBob is a great way to store water in a bath tub should you need to.

TIP: Socks

Socks Smart Wool socks for preppersnote: first appeared in October 2015

#1 – For serious preppers…only go with wool socks. And the only real brand I use to recommend was SmartWool. They are simply the best wool socks out there that I have personally worn over the last 20 years of hard wilderness and back-country use. They stay cool in the desert, and warm in the snow. When wet they won’t tear your feet up. However, I have Socks Wool REIbeen trying a couple other brands in the last 2 – 3 years or so. I am liking Minus33 and REI brand wool socks just as much. They rate right up there with SmartWool.

#2 – If the seams of your wool socks are bothering you then turn your socks inside out. The seam will not bother your feet because you will have the smooth side of the sock against your skin.





#3 – Wash your wool socks inside out and they won’t get those little “balls.” I also always use the “air” setting on the dryer, never any heat setting (well, if you want them to last as long as possible). And I am perfectly accepting of laying my wool socks over the back of a dining room table chair. Yeah, my wife loves that option 🙂

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?

SitRep – 08/29/20 (Part 3 of 3)

Note: If you haven’t read parts 1 & 2 you probably should. Otherwise, this article may not make much sense to you. <click here to read part 1>


Earlier this year I gave several warnings about not joining certain groups, essentially keeping a fairly low profile, not getting too involved…especially too publicly involved. The time was just not right due to a number of underlying issues. That’s changed.


Here is what I am asking, suggesting, that you do:

  1. Define your principles
  2. Focus on only significant/important issues
  3. Find your passion and work it
  4. Total and complete assessment of all 7 areas of your prepping efforts
  5. Remember balance
  6. Help/serve others
  7. Work your tail off !

Here is a little more explanation of what I mean in regards to those areas…

Define your principles –

Figure out exactly what you believe in; write it down to ensure they make sense to you. It doesn’t have to be long or involved.

Principle example: Abortion. Do you support it or not? Why? And what degree of tolerance do you have for violating that principle?

Answer example: I believe abortion to be wrong because the 6th Commandment says we shouldn’t kill (shed innocent blood), God tells us not to. The “standard” is the eternal principle to not shed innocent blood. And there is only one exception…a God-given right of self-defense. Gad has given us the right to self-defense and to defend our families. So the only exception to my principle stand would by the mother’s right to have an abortion should her doctor tell her that her pregnancy would kill her. Otherwise, I do not support abortion…period. It is also a “red line principle” of mine; something I sincerely and deeply believe in. That means if a political candidate supports abortion on demand, I won’t support that candidate.

Weigh issues against the “standards” that you hold to be of value. I use two standards; 1) the Constitution, 2) God. Just to have a more interesting debate in my head/heart I ask myself two questions; 1) What would the Founding Fathers say about this issue?, 2) What would Jesus say about this issue? The answer to those questions usually makes it very clear what my position should be.

Yes, this is all very, very subjective. That is why they are MY beliefs and MY principles. YOU have to decide what YOUR beliefs and principles are and why. If you don’t answer the “why” aspect then your principles and beliefs don’t have a solid foundation.

Focus on only significant issues –

There is a lot going on in the world, a long list of man-made and natural calamities taking place. It would be easy for a person to get distracted. I am telling you…ignore the static!

What is static? ONLY those things/issues which are NOT the most important to you and your family.

Example: “Chemtrail conspiracy theory”…now, I don’t care if you believe in it or not. My point…What can you do about it right now? This week? This month? What can you ever do about it? I am telling you the answer to all of those questions is…NOTHING! Because if the idea is true, you don’t have enough power to do anything about it.

Now, put it into perspective with other issues in your life…do you have a year’s supply of food? How about have taken an advanced FirstAid class on treating trauma wounds? You are far more likely to need food from your year’s supply and you are far more likely to need to treat a trauma would…then suffer from chemtrails. You can add to your food storage, you can take a FirstAid class far easier than cure any chemtrail issue.

Only give your time, effort, and resources to issues that are the most important…ignore the static!

FYI…90% of everything swirling around in life is static.

Find your passion and work it –

This is an easy one…find out what you love to do…then do it…a lot! For me it is commonsense prepping, working my little homestead, giving service to others, and doing family history (genealogy).

Yes, of course I do other things, the more mundane, life-required stuff. I still walk for exercise, clean my shop, take showers, and all other manner of boring (albeit necessary) tasks.

I am asking you to find out what really turns you on and then pursue it with a passion. Why? Because you can make a difference, a real difference, when you are passionate about something.

The only thing I ask of you…make sure your passions are moral and ethical. What about legal? Well, that is up to you 😉 The government has made sure that just about everything can be illegal in one way or another.

Total and complete assessment of all 7 areas of your prepping efforts –

Review the 7 Common Threats & Risks to all emergencies, disasters, and grid-down events. Then do an honest assessment of where your prepping efforts stand. Then make a realistic plan to fill the problematic gaps in your prepping. I am not suggesting that you go into debt, make your family suffer, create conflict with your spouse, inflict stress into your life…just make a doable plan to become better prepared. Plug the holes!

Remember “balance” –

Don’t get out of balance in your life. Don’t allow yourself to become obsessive with any single aspect of life. Remember the old adage…moderation in all things. I will present my wagon wheel theory examples for your consideration.

When you are balanced you are a better person…you are more of a help to others…a better parent…a better spouse…a better friend…a better Disciple of Christ.

Help & serve others –

Yeah, may sound a little strange at first, but trust me on this one. When you serve others you become a better person in almost every aspect. I am not asking you to become Mother Teresa. I am asking you to simply be of more service to others…help others. It may be something as simple as being kind to someone who looks to be having a bad day by a friendly “hello” as you pass by them. It might be something as grandiose as fixing someone’s car troubles. It could be helping the aged widow next door go to a doctor’s appointment. It might be a simple birthday card to a neighbor who lives alone. You figure out what you can do to help and serve others…then do it!

Oh, come on! Yes, don’t become obsessive over this…don’t become out of balance in serving others. But you have time in your life, in your day, to help others…so just go help.

Work your tail off! –

At this particular time, in this particular place, with all that is going on…you are needed! Your time, talents, efforts, even money are all needed. Now is the time to go operational!

Get out there and do the things that are needed. There will be time later for rest when things calm down. But right now…things are not calm…and best of all…right now you can make a difference!

Go out there into life an tackle those things that need to be done. Get ready!

Summary –

Earthquakes, wildfires, multiple and concurrent hurricanes, ravaging summer storms, violence, riots, the plague, politics based hate, and oh so much more. Yes, all of those things are happening right now at the same time. It is as if the world has been turned upside down and some great force has been released to make our lives miserable…even deadly. Well, it has. And yes, it will get worse.

But, let me assure you…it will get worse. Yeah, you read that sentence exactly right…it will get worse. Why? Well, that doesn’t really matter. How? Well, that doesn’t really matter either. What does matter is what you do!

So what is all this “do” I am referring to? It comes down to “doing” one thing…prepping. However, there are two aspects of prepping. Obviously there is the side of prepping that is easy to see…ways to defend yourself and your family, food storage, medical supplies and first aid knowledge, water storage, etc. The list could go on until I’ve covered all 7 areas. It is easy to know what to do in this respect. Let’s call that temporal prepping. Temporal meaning “enduring for a time only” in regards to our prepping. I could also refer to it as those things we can hold in our hands and the knowledge to use those things properly. But, there is another aspect of prepping I want to share with you today…a far, far more important facet of prepping.

I am referring to a mental state of mind, a person’s outlook, beliefs, intentions, and even their spirituality. Actually to me, in my way of thinking, you can add all of those terms together and summarize them with the term “spiritual prepping.” Now, don’t go getting all weirded out on me…just hear me out.

Your beliefs, your state of mind, when it comes to prepping is of key importance. It may mean the difference between surviving or not…or the person you become while surviving emergencies, disasters, or a grid-down event. If you have no solid foundation for your belief system then you will be easily swayed one or another on key issues and your behavior. If your beliefs are not founded on clear right and wrong, unmistakably understanding both, there exists the potentiality to a dark side of prepping and your behavior post-event.

Example: You claim to be a Christian…but during an incident you deny food to your extended family because they could have prepared (i.e. food storage) but bought a boat instead. Really?! Wherein lies the greater sin? Should they starve to death while your family has full bellies? What would Christ think of that attitude?

I am not telling you what to believe or what level of spiritual preparedness you should obtain. Those decisions are yours to make. I am simply asking you to be spiritually prepared as much as you are prepared from a temporal aspect.

Look at it this way…when the incident is over will you be satisfied with the person you became while the incident was taking place? Did you behave according to correct principles? If you are a Christian, would Christ himself be pleased with how you behaved, the person you became?

This is the time to be active, be bold, finish your temporal prepping. But, I am also asking you to give thought to your spiritual preparedness. It is important.

The past two days of SitRep material was extensive, detailed, involved, maybe a little daunting and overwhelming…you may not have even agreed with all that I had to say. That’s okay too.

What I hope happened during the last two days, and most specifically today, is that you listened to that little voice in your head and in your heart. You heard a message…you heard your message. Even in today’s article I made suggestions, encouraged you to action in some action areas. But, in the final analysis this is all my opinion, all my thoughts, all my…well, it is all about “me.”

What I am asking is for you to figure out how “you” fit into all of this, what you can do, and how you can do what needs to be done. So actually…it is all about “you.”

Now is the time to act!

If not you, who?

If not now, when?

Now is the time to be bold!

Now is the time to act!

SitRep – 08/29/20 (Part 2 of 3)

This article is Part #2 of a 3 part SitRep. If you have not read Part #1 (published yesterday) please go read it first <click here to read it>

In yesterday’s article I covered:

        • The Economy
        • Civil Society
        • Politics (which includes the upcoming Presidential election)

This article will cover the “X-Factors”, the convergence point, and the beginning of a Call to Action.

The X-Factors –

OK, you should be ready for me to share my opinion on the “X-Factor” thing about now. I’ve held you in suspense long enough.

X-Factor #1:

The great plague of 2020 (COVID-19) is one of the biggest farces ever thrust upon the US citizens. No, not the health condition per se, because there is a health problem called COVID-19, but how governments at all levels used it against citizens. But let’s review the facts first:

  • COVID-19 is a form of coronavirus. Simply another strain of a virus that we’ve known about for something like 70 years.
  • Studies have proven that only about 2% of all patients whose death has been attributed to COVID-19 have actually died from COVID-19. Yes, that means approximately 98% of all deaths attributed to COVID-19 have not died from COVID-19. The 98%’ers all had serious, life-threatening, major underlying health problems, and they died from one of those conditions but they also happened to have COVID-19 present as well. Actually…that is not entirely true. A percentage of those deaths where COVID-19 was claimed as cause of death were in patients who only exhibited COVID-19 symptoms, they were never tested. And we know that somewhere between 20% – 40% of all positive COVID-19 test results are “false positives.” We also know that some health officials have outright lied. For instance…in July COVID-19 was listed as the cause of death for a man who perished in a motorcycle accident. Yup, died from the trauma due to a motorcycle accident and he was listed as a COVID-19 fatality.
  • Mask wearing has been proven effective in fighting the spread of COVID-19. Mask wearing has been proven ineffective in fighting the spread of COVID-19. Wearing some masks have been proven effective in fighting the spread of COVID-19. Other masks have proven ineffective in fighting the spread of COVID-19. So why all the confusion and contradictory information, especially from experts?

Wearing of masks over time has actually been proven to be detrimental to a person’s health. Rebreathing of carbon dioxide that the body natural tries to expel is damaging to the body. Rebreathing germs, viruses, and bacteria not properly expelled due to wearing a mask has also been proven to be unhealthy and damaging to a person’s health. So tell me again why various levels of government are mandating the wearing of masks?  And why are some levels of government making it a criminal act to now not wear a mask in pubic or in school?

  • And help me understand why furniture stores were allowed to be open to the public and churches were not allowed to hold services? Tell me again why fast food places were allowed to have their drive through windows or walk up counters open for business but churches weren’t even allowed to have worship services with congregations in their cars in their parking lots? Tell me again why at least one governor sent the state police out to record the license plates of parishioners who went to church. Oh, and later sent them citations.

So X-Factor #1 is the chaos of the COVID-19 situation and its use as a weaponized health condition to train citizens to be controlled, to comply.

X-Factor #2:America's Founding Fathers wanted to prevent tyranny

To fully understand this X-Factor we have to be able to agree on, or at least understand, how governments work. Governments are supposed to be formed and exist to ensure/guarantee God-given rights and protect its citizens from threats (foreign and domestic). In exchange citizens agree to support and sustain the law…becoming and exist as a civil society with rights, freedoms, and liberties.

However, we have seen throughout history that governments never stay within their “lane.” Meaning, just as with individuals, governments also lust for power and money. We sadly see that governments, once formed, quickly begin a quest to acquire more and more power.

Unfortunately power is something that only one of two of these entities can have at any given time. We know that ALL power/rights originates from God. We also know that God-given rights (natural rights) belong to people as individuals…rights are not governments’ to give. As individuals we willingly assign some of those rights/power to government in exchange for some specific limited benefits. Governments’ power come from its citizens.

Example: Individuals voting for representatives (Congress) and then empowering them to act on their behalf when creating laws. That transfers some power from individuals to the government, but it takes place voluntarily.

Unfortunately, once power is tasted, governments begin to lust for more power and begin to take power from individuals vs. individuals voluntarily transferring/assigning power.

Example: US Federal income tax forcibly takes money from citizens without their consent with the threat of imprisonment if the citizenry doesn’t comply.

As governments take more and more power, without sufficient opposition from citizens (i.e. actions such as ballot box to armed revolution), government’s natural tendency is to increase its seizure of power from individuals. And any specific power can only exist with an individual or with the government. In order for governments to have power, or increase power, it must be taken from individuals. It is a “zero sum game” situation…in the struggle for power one entity wins, the other loses.

Most of us are aware of FEMA and their vast authority when they invoke it. By law they can go so far as to seize private and personal property. Yes, meaning they can come in and seize your food, water, guns, and any other resource you have on your person, in your house, on your property. It is done under the guise of “declared state of emergency” for the greater good.

Also, many of us are aware of the dark powers outlined under the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). This single piece of legislation is the most contradictory of everything good that this country was founded on. By law it allows the federal government to completely and totally ignore the basic founding principles of our country. It gives vast powers to the military to override local and state governments…yes, to even replace local and state law enforcement if they so desire. It allows for the torture of US, as well as foreign, citizens. It allows for the seizure of (not the arrest of) US citizens and disallowing them their Constitutional rights.

But, there is a far more sinister, dark, and evil form of power that the government can and does wield. A while back I began looking into just how much power the federal government (specifically the President) has, that the President can invoke to suppress, partially or wholly, the American people’s rights/freedoms/liberties. In other words change our government from a Constitutional Republic into a totalitarian state temporarily or permanently.

First off…our Constitutional Republic is long gone in both theory and fact. Congress over time (230 years) has continuously passed legislation that negates most, in some cases all, of our original rights, liberties, and freedoms that our Founding Fathers blessed us with. Congress has substantially changed how government works and what powers they can wield. But the single most frightening aspect of government power has not come from Congress, not from the Constitution, and certainly not from the consent of the people. Even the Supreme Court has become an “activist” branch of our government creating law. But some of the most dangerous power that I speak of has simply been created by the Executive Branch of the United States government. I speak specifically of Presidential Emergency Action Documents (PEADs).

Yeah, probably never heard of it have you? Most folks haven’t. And there are no public PEADs, none have been declassified, and the exact contents of PEADs are not known. There is no known record of disclosed information in an interview of anyone who is, or has been involved, with creating, editing, reviewing, or even have read a PEAD. Why? Because all those persons who would have access to them, and they are very few, sign non-disclosure agreements…under penalty of imprisonment. Not even the Freedom of Information Act can get you access to any part of any PEAD…let alone a whole PEAD document.

So how are they known about at all? There have been documents forcibly released (FOIA) by various government agencies that reference a few PEADs by name, hint as to their contents, or use the PEAD reference as justification of current or future action by that agency.

An example of that would be the FBI some 60 years ago had a memo (released through FOIA) that authorized the “seizure”, not the arrest, of any person who represented a threat to the operation of the federal government. And FYI…that authorization has never been revoked, or found unconstitutional by a court (let alone even challenged). Congress has never investigated it and the Courts have never ruled on it or even had a case brought before it pertaining to its obvious violation of the Constitution.

The foundation of PEADs actually started with the concept that a President must be able to act quickly to protect the country, whereas Congress acts slowly and cannot respond in a timeframe adequate to a national emergency. And that is exactly where the abuse started…declared national emergency. When a President declares a national emergency some of the powers he gains through FEMA and NDAA are completely outside of the Constitution and virtually unchecked. And PEADs provide authority even further outside of the Constitution and with virtual immunity from the Judicial Branch of the US government. In other words…it provides everything needed for the United States to become an authoritarian/totalitarian state during a declared national emergency. But, what if a President didn’t stop there…and invoked a perpetual state of emergency? What if he canceled or delayed elections based on a declared national emergency? What if he disbanded Congress…or at least forbid them to travel?

So why don’t we know more about PEADs? The simple answer…security classification. PEADs are classified so secret that even members of Congress are not allowed to read them. In interviews with people that might know about PEAD contents, when asked a question in reference to a PEAD, they answer, “I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of PEADs.” That is government speak for, “I know about them, they exist, they are very powerful, and you are not worthy to know anything about them.”

How convenient is that! The very documents capable of destroying the United States Constitution, shred rights/freedoms/liberties, to establish a totalitarian state…and no one outside of those doing the dirty work can even read them. And the court system, including the Supreme Court, has absolutely no say-so in it…because they too are not allowed access to them.

What does all this mean? The government of the United States has become corrupt to the point where it no longer recognizes God-given rights, has overthrown the founding principles of the Constitution, has all but destroyed most Constitutional rights/freedoms/liberties, has sized power after power after power from citizens, and has changed the way our government was designed to work. Additionally, it has given itself the final, complete, and all-encompassing powers needed to complete the transition from a Constitutional Republic founded 240 years ago to a totalitarian state whenever it wishes to do so. How? Simply by declaring a national state of emergency.

So X-Factor #2 is the US government giving itself unlimited powers completely outside of the protections of the US Constitution.

X-Factor #3:

To continue we have to be able to agree on a few things:

  1. The US economic situation is unstable, and it has been, and is being intentionally destabilized,
  2. The existence of COVID-19 has thrown the US into a very chaotic world touching every aspect of our society…and changing it.
  3. US society is now uncivil and getting worse. Getting worse to the point that we could make a case that we are on the verge of a civil war.
  4. The US political system has reached a point of…well, it is exactly what our Founding Fathers warned us about…political acting as nothing more than two opposing self-interest groups vying for power.

So if you can agree with me on those things we can go on to talk about this X-Factor. AT this point in time we have a destabilized economic situation, a destabilized society, a destabilized political system and a health crisis. What is the common thread? Destabilization.

So X-Factor #3 is destabilization.

Convergence Point –

Convergence Point

So why all the suspense and drama…even coining the term X-Factors? Well, I didn’t exactly create the “X-Factor” term…I am simply applying the term to our current situation.

To understand where I am coming from right now you have to go back to my presentation of the “convergence” at the very beginning of this SitRep in Part #1. Convergence is the intersection, joining, merging, coming together of two or more things. At this time I am referring to the convergence point.

Our society consists of a destabilized economic system, a Basic emergency preparedness for emergencies, disasters and grid-down. check listdestabilized society, a destabilized political system, and a severe health related crisis. These destabilized aspects in the United States has created chaos, is creating chaos, and will continue to create chaos. They have come together to create the convergence point.

So where am I headed with all of this? I will answer that with a question…

When you have enough chaos what happens?

The chief mission of a guerrilla insurgency, a primary tactic of the CIA, when trying to overthrow a foreign government, is simple…create a destabilized society.  And that destabilization generates sufficient chaos causing the populace to cry out for change…safety and security. It is a tried and proven tactic for thousands of years…and it works…history proves it works. And that is to be feared.

And it can only be defeated with one counter measure…day light. And I am not referring to sunshine as such. But the analogy is spot on. What is the best disinfectant against bacteria and viruses? UV light. What is the most abundant form/provider of UV light? The sun. So shedding daylight on something that needs disinfecting is the best, surest, easiest form of killing the virus/germ/bacteria that is causing the infection.

In this situation shedding light on the situation means standing by correct principles and exposing the evil taking place around us. And to me that requires forgetting politics.

“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”
George Washington,  1796

“There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.”
John Adams, 1789

Nothing could be more ill-judged than that intolerant spirit which has, at all times, characterized political parties.
Alexander Hamilton, 1787

Yup, to fix our situation along with shedding daylight on what is happening we must forget politics, forget political parties. Don’t look at it in terms of Republican/Democrat, left/right, liberal/conservative, BLM/Proud Boys, III’s/AntiFa, etc. Forget all of that! If you stick with those political positions and views you are in direct opposition to our Founding Fathers. Our Founding Fathers’ actions were dictated by understanding correct principles, abiding by them, being bold, and standing up for those principles.

The Agenda –

Why? How?

The people who are running this overthrow show, those who have targeted the US at this particular time in this particular way are not part of any political side…they are their own side. Those behind all of this are not members of a political party; they are not liberals, not Communists, not Progressives, not Democrats. They are also not Republicans, not conservatives, not the so-called right. They are none of those! But, they are using all of them, both sides regardless of political position.

They are using all of those groups against each other…they are destabilizing and creating chaos by using all the those opposing groups against each other. Why? To create chaos. Why? So eventually people, the “populace” will ask for, then beg for, then demand safety and security…cry out for peace and stability. And those behind this mess have the perfect answer…and you won’t like it.

Their answer is not rights, freedoms, and liberties. It is not a Constitutional Republic. It is not founding principles based on eternal principles. It is not “…all men are created equal…” It is not “We hold these truths…” It is not “We the people…” It is none of those things. But, it is safety and security, it is peace and stability…or else! And, it is delivered by force through tear gas, night sticks, flash-bang grenades, guns, and military vehicles.

Please remember this simple truth spoken of by one of our wisest Founding Fathers…

The answer of those who are trying to destroy us, their answer to our problems of today, in the plainest of terms…authoritarianism…totalitarianism. You see, the elitists know that you can’t be trusted, to know what is best…so they will tell you what is best. They will give you only options that they deem appropriate…they will force safety and security on you. They will see to it that you live in a peaceful and stable world by forcing it upon you. And you are not going to like it. Well, you won’t like it if you are a person who enjoys rights, freedoms, liberties, and the ability to exercise agency.

And if enough destabilization is created…if enough chaos is created…most people will beg for their plan, they will beg for safety, security, peace, and stability. They will plead for it…demand it. And that same populace will be all too eager to give up rights, freedoms, and liberties in exchange. We’ve seen just that in the last 5 -6 months. People, previously known as patriots and conservatives, are all too willing to accept, even taking great pleasure in, seeing military armored vehicles and soldiers standing on our streets enforcing curfews. Seeing even peaceful protestors and journalists beaten and shot by federal law enforcement troops…others abducted by military uniformed personnel into unmarked vehicles. How quickly they forgot the struggle of 240 years ago and the evils that our Founding Fathers overcame. How quickly these so-called Constitutionalists give up rights and liberties for a little safety and security!

To resist this scheme of those that would see the complete destruction of the United States…to resist their cunning, their evil…it can only be done with correct principles.


Only understanding and standing by correct principles will we have any chance to defeat those that wish us harm…and destruction. We must become our Founding Fathers.

I have spoken before about “principles vs politics”…it is our only hope. And I’ve shared my opinion on what principles to adopt. For me I have adopted two sets of principles; 1) Constitutional principles, 2) eternal principles. They are not conflicting, they are not mutually exclusive. They are compatible and complementary. They work perfectly hand-in-hand.

Let me be absolutely clear in what I believe and advocate…

  • Being part of a political party will add to the problem and serve to overthrow the Republic.
  • Being part of a political entity or movement (i.e. BLM, AntiFa, or any left-wing or right-wing) will add to the problem and serve to overthrow the Republic.
  • Favoring any political group (i.e. Communist, Marxist, right-wing, conservative, Republican, Democrat, etc.) will add to the problem and serve to overthrow the Republic.

Why will this add to the problem and serve to overthrow the United States? Because any of the above will create divisiveness, destabilization, and chaos when dealing with the opposite group. They are all the perfect examples of tribalism.

How will this add to the problem and serve to overthrow the United States? Because is plays into the hands of the ruling elitists of pitting us again each other…manipulating us into becoming a tool in their hands…one tribe against the other…all tribes against all others.

How does adopting correct principles “fix” anything? Because when we do what is right we are following correct principles for the right reason. It is never the wrong time to do the right thing. Doing right is the only thing that will overcome the opposition who are doing the wrong things…doing the evil things.

Yes, we may lose a battle from time to time…but we can and will win the war. And the war is not what many/most think…the war is actually good vs evil. Put yourself on the right side of this war through adopting and adhering to correct principles. And, be bold in doing so!

Be bold and stand up for correct principles…speak against anyone, any group, any organization that forwards opposition to those correct principles.

Now is the time to act!

If not you, who?

If not now, when?

Now is the time to be bold!

Now is the time to act!


note: tomorrow I will share some additional thoughts and put forward some suggestions.
