I have a pretty good memory.  I remember a plethora of things, whether significant or not lol.  I delve into the past, but do not live there. 

The new year is just that over much of the world already and soon here.  Those last gasps, dregs of sand in the hourglass, are nearly done.

I'm just recalling drive-in movies.  They used to be a common national feature in most states years ago.  Now, they are few and far between.

We used to go fairly often and see first run flicks.  I even saw Goldfinger at one.  Many more were viewed to my young delight under the stars.

It was cheap and gave people a feeling of freedom as we were together as an audience yet each family date etc had their own car. 

I loved the concession stand of course.  The barbeque/pulled pork and cheeseburgers were local classics.  Sometimes we'd get a pizza and bring it.  Everything but anchovies lol. 

I made the acquaintance of a projectionist as a young adult.  I spent time at several theaters and watched movies from the booth.  It was fascinating watching him feed the film platters and see the light flicker the parade of frames onto the screen. 

Even earlier, we knew the owners and manager of the Vogue indoor theater, long before it was a night club.  Ever see part of a movie behind the screen?  Talk about beyond the front row lol!  Moby Dick seemed truly life size!  The projection booth was smaller and then they had the old projectors, with attendant whirring and clicking as the filmic stories spun their spells.  And, btw, I first saw Goldfinger indoors there -s-.

Well, enough rumination.  Remember so you do not forget!

A new year, another day.

Lots of work to be done each day.

Maybe I'll stop by one of the dwindling drive-ins, but not til Spring!

I admit I buy the occasional lottery ticket.  I've actually won small amounts.  I don't depend on it though.  I've seen people spend large amounts of money simply for nothing.  Of course one can be conditioned and get a 'rush' from gambling.  Not me.  Most of my dough is from my own sweat.

Life is a gamble.  Well, choices for weal or woe.  Chances to succeed or fail and learn from both.

A lot of Hollywood types can be called lottery winners.  Some work hard and reap the benefits.  Some luck into their fortune and produce mediocre pap which oddly gets slurped up by sycophants.  Some are a flash in a pan and some endure.

Being in the right place at the right time together with dogged determination can make it more than chance.

Far as political stuff goes, I remember what my Psych prof said.  Opinions are like a$$holes.  Everybody has one.  True.  But we should all are free to express ourselves.  And the good taste to know when to do so.

Actors etal are no different than anyone else.  But some think they are above the crowd.  It's true for any group.  I remember family members who think they are superior when they are most certainly not, for instance.

Sure, there can be a big financial gain for some, but boy oh boy, very few.  Most actors I know aren't fabulously wealthy.  Some, though, do well and invest etc.  Nothing wrong with reaping benefits.

Let's say I hang with people who have common sense. That includes taking calculated risks.

I will tell you one thing Pat McGoohan said to me.  He mentioned how there are 10s of 1000s of people who are striving to be actors etc.  Most fail.  It's relative.  It takes luck.  That translates to positioning oneself to accept whatever one deems success.

A thought for all this New Years weekend.

False Witness

Back in the day, a lot of people hitchhiked.  It had gone on before I appeared on earth.  A lot of soldiers went from base to home and vice versa.  In my day, hippies hitched all over and many of us who weren't did so too.

I can tell you I met a lot of different people.  They were mostly good, with a few bad ones.  I think by and large most folks were ok.  But there were criminals too, the carbuncles of society. 

Some robberies, rapes and murders occurred.  But they were fewer and farther between.  Of course there was a risk, not the least of which could have been a traffic accident.  There is a downside to everything, eve just taking a walk or going to your car.  However, I could write a book about my experiences hitching.  Maybe I will someday.

A particular crime happened with young women being the perpetrators.  They would hitch, get rides with guys, then yell rape or assault. It seemed random, but it was planned, often with a boyfriend as enforcer. How do I know?  My experience, knowledge and association with police for decades.  There were prosecutions, though I expect some people were extorted, even robbed and threatened it would get 'out'.  Just for giving a girl a ride.  Or the girl would come onto the victim, he'd fall for it and literally pay.  And sometimes a guy, but not as often.

Did drivers rape and rob?  Yes but the old game of point the finger was active enough on the road.

There is a current trend of point the finger that's similar.

Women have merely to point at someone and accuse them of sexual crime.  They are expected to step down, resign, quit whatever they are doing.  No proof save for accusation or if there is something it is easily proven to be fallacious.  Lies and half truths are the bailiwick of collectivists.  There is no innocence til proven guilty.  Just a sexual Madame DeFarge.

In spite of some perps with long histories of abuse, I believe there is a concerted effort to try again to point the finger at President. Trump (How I like the sound of that name and title together).  Collectivists don't like it and we see the perfidy they ooze and spew against Restoring the Republic.  It'll get worse before it gets better, and it has improved immensely.

If Russia doesn't work, perhaps sexual abuse accusations will.  Ironic since The President's admin is bagging so many child rapists and rescuing kids.  That, of course, is part of it.  The evil ones are desperate to make it stop.

If the sex stuff fails there is a plan afoot to 25th Amendment him out by declaring him mentally unfit.  It's not working well either.

The last resort is something repulsive.  There seem to be those bandying assassination around.  May they do their worst. They are failing that too.

I've counseled victims and know about the consequences of rape, both adult and child. 

They should tell.  It must be thoroughly investigated and victims protected as perps are brought to justice.  AG Sessions and many more are doing this.

I have worked to improve chances for joint custody and failing that, decent justice for noncustodial parents.  I have been a witness for a couple of  people who were falsely accused of hurting both their former spouse and their kids just to deny them any contact.  Talk about perfidy.  Turning kids against family and using them as weapons.

False witness.  There is a reason it is one of the Ten Commandments.  Deadly sin.  Character assassination.

One of the collectivists chief weapons.

And they scoff that if they lie, they are held accountable in this world and the next.

Justice must be sure for all.

It is earned, not given.

Just because someone is a (Fill in the blank) doesn't mean they garner respect.

Sure, the title is supposed to 'suggest' esteem, such as 'reverend', meaning worthy of reverence'. Not always and certainly the best are human. Father, mother, grandma etc should evoke memories of love and security.

Sometimes they do not.

Abuse is often done by someone known by the victim.

We think we  know politicians but it's abundantly clear we do not.  It's a reverse in that they garner contempt more than respect.

Accountability.  When trust is betrayed, that's out the window. 

And at the end of the year, it may seem like desperate clichés that are nonetheless true. 

The coming year we can prove we've had enough.  Not one person should be abused for any reason.

So, be reasoned, balance head and heart and do all each can do to pluck the weeds and replant.

Oh yes, be assiduously observant for voter fraud will be rampant.

Don't be a victim.  Nor survivor.  Be victorious.

Christmas Is Coming

Peace on earth, good will to men.  What's wrong with that?  It's a time of renewal, a chance to get right.  Light shining in the darkness.

Christianity is a faith (not religion) of life.  Sure, some have perverted it and there are a few even now who think death for those who oppose them is dandy. 

According to the story, Jesus was born into the world to set the record straight between God and humankind.  There is no getting off the hook.

There is a religion (chained behavior) which celebrates death.  It is the antithesis of all other ways, save for Satanism/luciferianism.  I'm oversimplifying some but that's about it.

Death need not be feared with Jesus, let alone many other faiths.  It's not to be pursued for its own sake but when inevitable, as it always is, it is transition. 

Peace.  For us it is liberation.  Sadly in this world, it must be fought for.  Debate that if you like.  But there are various ways to fight.

It is not submission upon fear of punishment or death, though there is a case for being lost and found.

Love finds a way.  You can debate about punishment but we often punish ourselves and the fallen aid and abet separation from God/that which heals/reconciles.

Who or what wants to quell or quash that?

In mental health there is talk of controlling due to lack of self.  That greatly sums up hell and anyone or thing which robs us of self control.

Freewill gives us the opportunity to control with guidance from God.

There has been a concerted effort over time to shut the message of Christmas up.  Even mentioning 'Merry Christmas' is looked upon like that which is its opposite.

We have a new birth of Freedom and that includes just saying the former.  To live it is divine.

A breeze?  No.  But easier.

Whatever you believe, accept my heartfelt good will.

Merry Christmas.

Gun Trauma

There have been accidents with firearms.  They are fortunately infrequent, but each one hammers in the din of collectivist frenzy to disarm.

There was a tragic accident several years ago at a range.  A girl, round ten, lost control of a Mac 10 and shot the instructor, killing him.

Just recently some guy mistook a dog walking neighbor for a deer and shot and killed her.

The collectivists are dizzy with ecstasy when these events happen just as they are when a 'mass shooting' occurs.

While tragic, these events are rare.  Much is done to eliminate such tragedy.  Yet tragedy pokes through relatively rarely.

People have to manage themselves.  And the number of responsible, competent gunowners is overwhelming.  Up to 2/12 million lives are saved with guns every year.

Yet, we should deal with tragedy's aftermath.  There is often regret or even repugnance concerning gun usage.  People become phobic and can't deal with the object.  Like car accidents, horse injuries, even dog bites, allow fear to dominate results.

Various caring therapies can and should be applied, but never forced.  That's what got folks into trouble in the first place. 

I suggest responsibility in the form of training continues.  Precaution and safety, repeatedly.  It worked for me and now our kids.

Gun ownership/usage is an awesome responsibility.

Take care of yourselves.

Morning Talks

In grade school, back in the day, we had what were called 'morning talks'.

This consisted of each student every morning, giving a 3 to 5 minute talk on a subject of his/her choice.

The subjects consisted of very down to earth things, such as how to make and bake a pie, how to fish, baseball, you name it.

When it came to my turn, I guess I was different.

We rotated through the year and among my topics I included monster makeup in movies, talking about monsters/scifi characters, Western movies/TV shows and guns.  Yes, I talked about collecting them and some of the different kinds.  Noone batted an eye.

Need I say how we've changed culturally?  The collectivists have done a 'good' job making such things verboten and at least outre.  Except, for some of us, it has remained the same.

Now, I don't live in the past.  But, there are constants.  Our basic principles dealing with Liberty have not altered, not one iota.  It sure rubs against the grain of cultural Marxism.

I am asking each of you to carry on.  The collectivists call us reactionaries.  They say we are a dying breed.  I was told this recently, intimating I would be eliminated.  To them I say try and see what you get.  Lessons in Freedom await.

Pass it on.  It's how I learned, beginning in those days of yesteryear and continuing with my own kids and other young ones.  Freedom to share, cogently and steadfastly do more than survive the wretched disease of liberalism/collectivism.  We assure the Republic rises and shines in a new morning, freshly traditional.

I used to wonder how to fill those 3 to 5 minutes.  To a kid it seemed a long time.  I found, as did most, that the time flew when taking up a topic which was loved.  Our teachers I hope still smile at us for inspiring us to communicate.

A few minutes.  A fresh start. 

Time is flying.

Fly with it.

True Or False

I've talked many times about casting aspersions, or as I say pointing the finger.  It's an age old collectivist ruse.

Point the finger and take attention away from the perps/instigators etal.

There is a rash, to say the least, of accusations of rape, sexual abuse and coercion amongst the Hollywood crowd and politicians. 

The preponderance of belief is on the side of the accuser.  It is a twosided coin. 

Of course victims/abused are encouraged to speak up.  Shame and intimidation kept secrets quiet with commensurate turmoil.   

It's quite a mess, a very squirmy plate of dysfunction. 

First one, then another, in both frequently overlapping spheres, have collapsed in a flurry of accusation.

Many have lost credibility and have lost not just prestige, but work too. 

Their reputations, often already shady, having garnered stories, bribes and in some cases 'accidents' buying silence.

Do you want to make it in Hollywood?  Want power, influence, wealth?  Shut up and go with the flow.  No matter how disgusting, what can one person do?  And even if you do, who is going to back accusations?  Silence is bought at the price of not just money, but also souls.  It's a two edged sword.

Now when attention is finally gained, there is the question of believability as mentioned before. Is it enough to just say someone did something?  Of course not.  And a legal process is engaged, for weal or woe.

Evidence must be gathered, witnesses vetted and claims corroborated.  If pointing a finger were enough, then many innocent people would be condemned.  And even when actually found innocent, reputations are usually ruined.  There is the lingering doubt that maybe there is something to it in spite of all.

Here is my take on the current situation.

There are many guilty.  Some are encouraged, since they have what they wanted, to jump on the victim train.  And for most, that is enough for alleged perps to lose prestige and power.

At this time, there is an immense sweep of child rapists, often rescuing children in current peril, let alone victims of yesteryear.  It is the most ambitious undertaking in garnering justice in our history and perhaps even the world. 

The spheres overlap and politicians are falling as well.

It is timing I question with the coming out of accusations.  None of it is hardly re kids.  It's taking a blow, seeming to deflect what's happening.

And when a crucial election is about to happen, suddenly people pop up pointing away.

Questionable 'actors' are brought to play.  It is enough to stymie many.

Truth and falsity vie while actual victims suffer. 

And it might be a round about way to manufacture a takedown for several.

May it be a real opportunity to exact justice and not a witch hunt.

The masks are falling.

We are able to see at long last just who and what is at stake.

Most of you know the name of my blog refers to Brig. Gen. Anthony C. McAuliffe's  classic reply to the German demand of surrender of the surrounded American forces at Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge in WW2.

My blog has gone many places over the years, but the resolve remains the same re America's Freedom and further commitment to Restore our Constitutional Republic.

As we segue into that very season when this took place, please enjoy the detailed account of the story of the NUTS reply.

On December 22, 1944, at about 11:30 in the morning, a group of four German soldiers, waving two white flags, approached the American lines using the Arlon Road from the direction of Remoifosse, south of Bastogne. The group consisted of two officers and two enlisted men. The senior officer was a Major Wagner of the 47th Panzer Corps. The junior officer, Lt. Hellmuth Henke of the Panzer Lehr Operations Section, was carrying a briefcase under his arm. The two enlisted men had been selected from the 901st Panzer Grenadier Regiment.

The Americans defending in that location were members of F Company of the 327th Glider Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division. The Germans walked past a bazooka team in a foxhole in front of the Kessler farm and stopped in front of the foxhole of PFC Leo Palma, a B.A.R. gunner. Palma described the officers as wearing long overcoats and shiny black boots. Lieutenant Henke, who spoke English said, "I want to see the commanding officer of this section." Palma was at a loss for words, but Staff Sergeant Carl E. Dickinson who had been manning a position nearby walked out to the road and called the group over to him. The Germans explained that they had a written message to be presented to the American Commander in Bastogne.

Henke said they would consent to being blindfolded and taken to the American Commanding Officer. In fact, they had brought blindfolds with them. Henke blindfolded Wagner and Dickinson blindfolded Henke. As the blindfolds were being applied, Dickinson was joined by PFC Ernest Premetz, a German-speaking medic of his platoon who offered to serve as an interpreter. However no interpreter was needed.

Dickinson and Premetz left the two German enlisted men there and took the two German officers to the Kessler farmhouse. Tech. Sgt. Oswald Y. Butler, Acting Platoon Leader of the 1st Platoon, and Lt. Leslie E. Smith, Platoon Leader of the Weapons Platoon, told them to take the blindfolded officers to the F Company Command Post. They took the two German officers on a roundabout route to the Command Post of F Company, 327th GIR, which was a large foxhole located in a wooded area about a quarter mile away. Shortly after arriving at the command post, they were joined by Capt. James F. Adams, the F Company Commander, who had been at a forward observation post when he was notified of the arrival of the Germans.

When Adams arrived, 1st Sgt. Constantine A. Pappas informed him that the German major had already presented a written message. The F Company Executive Officer, Lt. William J. Herzke, was on the phone, reading the message to their Battalion Command Post in Marvie. The 2nd Battalion Command Post then notified the 327th Regimental Headquarters in Bastogne. Col. Bud Harper, the 327th Regimental Commander, was not there; he was out inspecting his unit's positions. The senior officer present was the Regimental Operations Officer, Major Alvin Jones. Maj. Jones notified the Division Headquarters in Bastogne and asked for instructions. He was told to retrieve the message and bring it to the Division Headquarters. He drove to the F Company Command Post and was given the message. The two blindfolded officers were kept in the woods adjacent to the foxhole Command Post.

Upon receiving Maj. Jones' phone call at Division Headquarters, the Acting Chief of Staff, Lt. Col. Ned Moore entered Brig. Gen. Anthony C. McAuliffe's sleeping quarters adjacent to the communications center. Moore wakened McAulliffe and told him, "The Germans have sent some people forward to take our surrender." Moore recalled that Brig. Gen. McAuliffe, still half asleep, said "Nuts!" and started to climb out of his sleeping bag.

Moore then went back out into the Communications Center where he briefed the rest of the Division staff of the on-going situation, including telling them of McAulliffe's remark of "Nuts!"

When Maj. Jones arrived with the message, the staff looked at it before taking it in to McAulliffe.

The German surrender demand was typewritten on two sheets. One was in English, the other in German. They had been typed on an English typewriter as indicated by the fact that the diacritical marks required on the German copy had been entered by hand.

This is the English version of the message:

"December 22nd 1944

To the U.S.A. Commander of the encircled town of Bastogne.

The fortune of war is changing. This time the U.S.A.
forces in and near Bastogne have been encircled by strong
German armored units. More German armored units have crossed
the river Ourthe near Ortheuville, have taken Marche and
reached St. Hubert by passing through Hompre-Sibret-Tillet.
Libramont is in German hands.
There is only one possibility to save the encircled
U.S.A troops from total annihilation: that is the honorable
surrender of the encircled town. In order to think it over
a term of two hours will be granted beginning with the
presentation of this note.
If this proposal should be rejected one German
Artillery Corps and six heavy A. A. Battalions are ready
to annihilate the U.S.A. troops in and near Bastogne. The
order for firing will be given immediately after this two
hours' term.
All the serious civilian losses caused by this
artillery fire would not correspond with the wellknown
American humanity.

The German Commander."

The Division Operations Officer, Lt. Col. Harry Kinnard recalled that McAulliffe initially asked, "They want to surrender?" Moore told him, "No sir, they want us to surrender." McAulliffe arose and erupted in anger, which shocked those looking on. He took the paper, looked at it, said "Us surrender, aw nuts!" and dropped it on the floor. Maj. Jones was dismissed. McAulliffe then left the Headquarters to go congratulate a unit on the Western perimeter that had successfully taken out a German road block earlier that morning.

When Jones left the Headquarters, he went back to the F Company Command Post and spoke with the two German officers. When he returned to his Regimental Headquarters, he phoned the division headquarters.

Upon returning to the division headquarters, McAulliffe was informed that Jones had phoned to say that the two German officers were still waiting at the F Company Command Post. Since they brought a formal demand they felt they were entitled to a formal reply and they were to return to the German lines two hours after delivering their message.

McAulliffe asked that Col. Harper be summoned to the Division Headquarters. Harper, who was still inspecting his units' positions, was contacted by radio.

When Harper arrived at the Headquarters, he was asked to wait outside of the closed door to McAulliffe's quarters. Inside, in the presence of his staff, McAulliffe wondered aloud, "Well, I don't know what to tell them." At that point, Kinnard said, "What you said initially would be hard to beat." McAulliffe asked "What do you mean?" Kinnard, said, "Sir, you said nuts." All members of the staff enthusiastically agreed, so McAulliffe wrote it down on a message pad and said, "Have it typed up."

The reply was typed up, centered on a full sheet of paper. It read:

"December 22, 1944

To the German Commander,

N U T S !

The American Commander"

McAulliffe dismissed the staff and asked that Harper come in. McAulliffe initially toyed with him by having him stand in front of Higgins and himself. McAulliffe showed him the surrender demand and asked if he had already seen it. Harper said no. McAulliffe asked him to read it and suggest how it should be answered. Harper was surprised by the request and quickly tried to draft a reply in his head. At that moment, a clerk-typist entered the room and handed McAulliffe a sheet of paper. He looked at it and then showed Harper the typed "NUTS" reply, asking him if he thought that was a proper reply. Harper read it and started laughing. McAulliffe asked Harper to personally deliver the reply to the Germans, cautioning him not to go into the German lines.

Harper took the reply and drove to the F Company Command Post. Harper told Henke that he had the American Commander's reply. Henke asked if it was written or verbal. Harper answered it was written and he put it in the hand of the blindfolded German Major. Henke asked about the contents of the reply because if it was affirmative, they were authorized to negotiate further. Harper said, "The reply consists of a single word, NUTS!" Henke, not understanding, asked, "Is that reply negative or affirmative?" Harper said, "The reply is decidedly not affirmative", adding, "If you continue this foolish attack, your losses will be tremendous." Henke translated for the Major. The Major nodded.

The two blindfolded German officers were then driven, again by a roundabout route, back to their entry point at the Kessler farm. At the farm, the group was rejoined by PFC Premetz. The blindfolds were removed and the Germans opened and looked at the reply. They asked, "What does this mean?" They obviously didn't understand the American slang. Harper and Premetz discussed how to explain it. Harper suggested, "Tell them to take a flying s**t!" Premetz thought about it, then straightened up, faced the Germans and said, "Du kannst zum Teufel gehen." He told Harper it meant "You can go to Hell." Then Harper said, "If you continue to attack, we will kill every goddamn German that tries to break into this city." Henke replied, "We will kill many Americans. This is war." Harper then said, "On your way Bud, and good luck to you." After Henke translated, the major acknowledged. They saluted and the Germans started to walk away. Harper angrily called out to them, "If you don't know what I am talking about, simply go back to your commanding officer and tell him to just plain, 'Go to Hell'." After Henke translated, the major got angry and stormed off. As he passed Palma's position, he threw his blindfold and Palma caught it. Palma wrote that he didn't realize the historical importance of that blindfold. He later used it to clean his B.A.R. and threw it away!

The German party returned to their lines. Capt. Adams recorded the time as 1400 hours.

While watching the Germans leaving, Harper began to regret losing his temper, fearing that his attitude may increase the intensity of the attack on his positions. Fortunately, the threatened artillery barrage never happened. Instead, the German Luftwaffe was added to the attack, bombing the town at night.

According to a narrative written by Hellmuth Henke, when the German officers returned to their vehicle, while they were putting their pistol belts back on, Maj. Wagner removed his pistol from his trouser pocket and placed it in its holster, stating that he wasn't going to get caught without protection.

The two German officers then drove to the 901st Panzer Grenadier Regimental headquarters in Lutrebois. After reporting in, they left to go to the Panzer Lehr Division headquarters located about a mile further south. Just before reaching the Panzer Lehr Headquarters, they saw the car of General von Manteuffel parked by a thicket of trees. Maj. Wagner stopped and reported to the General. They then proceeded to the Panzer Lehr headquarters. General von Luettwitz, the Corps Commander, happened to be there. They presented the "NUTS" reply. Upon hearing the negative reply, General Bayerlein, said it was time to start striking out with the heavy artillery located behind the hill. He was interrupted by General von Luettwitz who stated that the heavy artillery was no longer located there, it had been moved to forward positions past Bastogne. Bayerlein then started to explain how he would attack Bastogne without the heavy artillery, but was again interrupted by von Luettwitz. Von Luettwitz reminded Bayerlein that Bastogne was not his objective and ordered the Panzer Lehr Division to proceed around Bastogne to Rochefort and leave Bastogne to the 26th Volksgrenadier Division.

Always windswept.  It was Chicago.

He always remembered it as cold, though summer could be warm.  But always windswept.

He as a soldier on an invisible front line.  An age old war since before time focused in a room between a man with God's help facing evil. 

He was a veteran of many battles, victorious only by the grace of God.  And each battle took a little bit of him away.

When he was called home, he hoped to be restored.

People fear.  They brush aside the spiritual.  Or they realize it and picked the wrong side. 

The fallen prey and feed on fear.  They isolate and appear strong.  They have a timeless power and hatred beyond understanding.  But they were beaten even in the beginning.  Now they subvert and want to take as many people with them as they can.

Good and evil wend there ways through life, all history and daily routines.  One doesn't have to believe it, though it's obvious if one watches events unfold. 

And a man of God stands between the dark and Light.

Now he stood on the balcony, having followed the example of Jesus, to liberate the captives. 

He smiled at the thought of children singing, random acts of kindness, beauty in simplicity.

His faith kept him going but it was seasoned with humor.  For in hell there is no laughter none but derision.  Foibles give us humility, yet the courage to stand up.

He's gone.

The balcony remains.

People broad brush this as the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution.  Well, it is.  But there is much more detail and texture. 

The October Revolution is what most people think of when referring to those history page turning events.  It's when the Bolsheviks aka the 'larger' party advocating and engaging violent revolution overthrew the provisional government which had overthrown the Tsar in February of that year.  The Mensheviks, btw, were the minority commies, seeking to achieve collectivist government by parliamentary procedure.  Violence vs slow (Fabian) subversion.  Sound familiar?

Now I suggest you all go study these events, for there are many twists and turns.  Such is history.  Reminds me of my HS world history teacher, who always injected humanity, cause and its opposite into his teaching.  History is more than dates, events and names.

Also, study American troops in Vladivostok/Siberia.  Did they help or hinder Bolshevism?

And who financed the collectivists?  There were many sympathetic to Red October round the world, especially in New York.  Money spurred it, not just a bunch of fed up peasants.

Today, we have dedicated collectivists celebrating Red October.  Will they actually try an outright putsch or will they needle, increase the heat while subversion from congress/within slides US further down?  Be prepared for both.

If anyone tells you communism is either dead or at least on the way out, don't believe it.  They are either naïve or true believers subverting.

The collectivist threat has never been bigger.  This is a well laid out plan by current lefties such as Ayers and many more including democrats and neocons and that red diaper baby preceding President Trump.

Well placed in every walk of life, useful idiots and true believers hearken to the string pullers, while the shadowy globalists rally them to retake what Trump and all of us working to Restore the Republic are gaining. 

Bolshevism will up the violence while the Mensheviks continue what they have done from the beginning.

I was told 'my time was nearly done' aka as America is almost destroyed and I along with others, would be dead.  Even called me McCarthy lol.  An honor to be included with that patriot.  Well, we all die.  When God calls me home, may it be in victory over the evil we seek to obliterate.

Perhaps 2017 is the beginning of an anniversary of Liberty that will reside next to 1776.

Was going to refer to intellect but that has little to do with it.  It does have to do with manipulation and birds of a feather. 

I'm on Facebook.  I use it to keep in touch, check out trends, express opinions and facts/support.  I engage in a minimum of chitchat.  And yes I network.

So, I have contact with show biz people.  They hold various jobs and what is considered prominence. As for self importance, that varies widely.  But they all have opinions

My Psych Dept head liked to say opinions are like a$$holes, everybody has one.  Indeed.  And they vary.

Some are subtle, with little directly said.  But you know what they think.  Others are blatant, in your face.  Some are simply forthright.  Yet some are even worse.  They are crass and sink to the lowest common denominator. 

This could be true for more than one view.  I'd say bluntness and crassness are separate, however.

I'm blunt concerning President Trump's immediate predecessor..  He is a Marxist shill who wounded the Republic. 

I'm equally blunt about President Trump.  He is seeking to Restore the Republic.  I believe it.  Many of us are in our own ways.  It'll take more time.  Repairing the damage is costly but not even close to the alternative.  He's blunt himself.  I like that after so much 'polish' and nothing else.

There is a hostility I believe to be the worst against any President I've seen.  I mean the vociferousness mingled with attacks against him and all who seek Freedom.  It's both planned and surprise that Trump made it.  Ayersian contingencies coinciding with 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution.

I've spoken many times of useful idiots, true believers, string pullers and the few in the shadows.  I think the upper echelon are counting on the bottom.  Useful idiots/lemmings poised to go over the edge for collectivism.

Now some leftist celebrities mix nostalgia re their past filmic careers with downright vicious attacks on our President and thusly on us.  They rely on cult of personality and like mindedness.  And their followers supply it in droves.

They mix pics and stories along with diatribes particularly re the President.  It's carefully selected and aimed at emotion with no time for analytical thought.  They seem to get the attention they still crave and espouse particularly lately, vitriol at Trump.

Many of the responses are shorter nasty barbs, nothing constructive.  And oh the flattery slathered by the sycophants. Useful idiots indeed. 

If one picks apart the diatribes, they easily fall within Alinsky's teaching.  Mostly, as said, they rely on insult and hammering a point with lies and half truths.

If one dares disagree, the followers unleash like rabid dogs or perhaps piranha.  Their Alinskyan skills vary but they are united in hatred and subversion.

Facts don't matter.  I sometimes leave just a lol or similar when the diatribe is particularly false.

These collectivist celebs play to a shaky audience.  The foundation never changes.  But they know how to tweak instability.

There have been posts urging those who disagree to be respectful and if they insist on being a-holes to leave.  Now that is rich hypocrisy lol.

IOW knuckle under no matter how factual and nonvitriolic.

The perps want things stirred up.  They bait us to go down to their level.

No thank you.  Let's just let the lemmings run off the cliff.  We have a Republic to Restore.

Sidestep Twostep

Could have called it jig but I guess I'd be accused of racism.  Some people are niggardly.  Yeah a prof actually got in trouble for using that term.  Sheesh.

I've seen a lot of stuff concerning flag, anthem etc.  And as usual the collectivists don't disappoint.  Their are as many opinions as fleas on a dog.  Many miss the point.  Some hit the nail on the head.

It's grandstanding by collectivists.  As mentioned before, they latch onto Freedom methods and use it against us. 

Yes, even the most reprehensible, commies, Nazis, even socalled pedophiles (child rapist) can demonstrate etc.  And when people are prosecuted, the worst are entitled to a fair trial.  For if they don't receive it, if we become exclusive, who knows who might be next.

Responses all over the net are still pouring in.  One should always note how everything is written.  Some are subtler, some knee jerk and much in between.  This whole affair is an ideal illustration of how collectivists work.  And it shows the ways patriots and all Freedom minded whatever the moniker, express themselves.

There is a lot of side stepping.

I read some bombast from an Army sergeant who said he wished they all had kneeled.  He and another military guy said it was ridiculous that Villanueva would be intimidated into apologizing.  After all he's way over 6 foot and a former lieutenant in the Rangers.  Pure bravado.

Of course he was cowed.  Who signs the paychecks?  Besides there is team/peer pressure.  Everybody has a breaking point supposedly.  Haven't reached mine yet lol.

Also this paragon of blather said no one had the sack to face, and the name escapes me because I don't follow team sports, such and such and say anything about boycotting.  What polished turd bs.

I have no trouble telling folks respectfully if bluntly what I think.  Let's just say I have respect for size and strength but also know enough to look someone in the eye and tell the truth.  Not fu like some idiots, just honest communication.  I never look for a fight -s-.

Now, this sergeant also said he didn't take his oath to defend a flag or anthem and he was just fine with all the 'protest'.  He further said it was meant to make us think and to be uncomfortable.  OK.

We all have a right to assess protest, even peaceful stuff.  And this current round is just provocation based on collectivist lies and half truths. 

He also said he sent comrades home in flag draped coffins and people should think twice about wearing 'flag' apparel.  Did we stand and salute at home?  Hmmm?

For pity's sake, I've never seen such a display of song and dance even from dedicated commies.

That flag aka Stars and Stripes is a symbol of the oath he and all US Armed Forces take.  Similar oaths are taken by gov officials. and civilian police as well. 

The Anthem aka Star Spangled Banner celebrates that symbol.

So sidestep twostep all you like.  Say it doesn't matter.  It does.

Let's dance a rhumba, take Liberty in our arms and foxtrot into the future.

Collectivist Appropriation

Just a minute!  How many of us have held up an index finger so we can finish something before we engage in conversation etc?

It's also an indication of devotion to a particular deity by those who wish to exterminate all others.  Did they hijack the gesture?  Well it cramps some people's style.

That may seem silly, but collectivism does appropriate terms.

Take resistance.  With encroaching big gov and all its entanglements, including gun rights infringements and travel restrictions, those of us seeking to Restore the Republic are seen as Resistance to tyranny.

Now, collectivists have stolen it to mean obstructing those endeavors, currently partially embodied in President Trump.  Boy, they really hate him and thus, us.

Projection.  Hallmark of collectivist hypocrisy.  It's prescribed in Alinsky's Rules For Radicals, a must read.  Accuse your enemy of what you do.  And it's furiously increased since 11/8/16.

Our enemies are most dissatisfied with those results.  Their opposition has increased and metastasized.  All according to plan.  They are not spur of the moment usually.  They have meticulously detailed the doom of Freedom.  Bit by bit they have utilized their plans.  But they forget one thing.  Resilience.

Americans were meant to ignite brush fires of Liberty in the minds of people, to paraphrase Sam Adams.  Since before the beginning of the Republic, we have been opposed.  The methods have remarkably stayed the same.

Their main weapon is relieving people of thought.  Ours is to think for ourselves.

True enough, they even dare to attempt hijacking thought.  The pseudointellectuals beginning with Marx twisted to this day thought when in reality they fast change the gullible with a bombardment of emotion.  No balance.

They appeal to common heart subjects.  But they lack common sense.  And it all leads to someone else doing the thinking.

Encounter them.  Confront.  You soon see a pattern.  And they counter with lies and half truths.

Don't be fooled.  If not, they ridicule.  Then ultimately, violence.

Sometime the best answer is brevity.  And truth.

It's chess with a dash of poker.  The odds are in our favor.

Their current boldness is an indication that they are either desperate or believe they are actually poised to take over. 

Two friends have said the masks are falling and we are seeing ourselves and others as we truly are.  It is so, for when this outbreak of boldness reaches a crescendo, we will have nowhere to go but up.

We're not going in circles, chasing our tales.  Let the enemy do that.

Using their own faults against them, they can appropriate til the cows come home.

We hold the beginning.  And the end.

Our new beginning.

Under The Bed

Ah the old 'red scare' post WW2.  Some people thought commies were everywhere, even in the closet or under the bed.  Well they were, figuratively.  And the scare was certainly concern.

After Uncle Joe Stalin ordered American commies to cease most ops in USA during the war, they returned, many vets included.  They resumed subversion, including infiltration of American society.

It's not paranoia, a common slam by collectivists, nor exaggeration.  These and many more poo poos are lobbed to try and either allay concerns or to demonize same.  'Communism is gone' or we aren't after your guns come to mind as well.  Remember lies and half truths are hallmarks of our enemies.

They are everywhere.  They can be teachers, doctors, judges mechanics cab drivers, literally anything.  And yes the can be in the armed forces.

Currently there's a stink about a West Point grad who posted a pic with a fist and holding his cap with a 'communism will win' note inside; also a Che t-shirt under his tunic.  He blogs with a commie name and is a member of Democratic Socialists of America.  This guy is a commissioned Army officer on duty in NY state.  Disgraceful.  There are others.  Will he be swiftly court martialed?  Who knows.  The former occupier of the Oval Office sprinkled collectivist officers throughout the Armed Forces, often forcing Constitutional officers out.

This reminds me that commie infiltration has existed since the Civil War.  Marx was a fanboy of Lincoln and there were Marxist officers in the North even then.  I've mentioned it before and is worthy of at least a post on its own.  And scour around because it's obvious history is getting scrubbed.  It's not just statues disappearing.

I had posted a counter to some collectivist nonsense.  I was flooded with derision.  A nurse, yes a nurse called me McCarthy and exhibited a meme that my time was almost up!  Hmmm.  Hope I don't end up at her hospital.

They are getting bolder.  There has been such a build up with both brainwashed students and those raised commie, that they are more and more just coming out and declaring their collectivism.  Don't be alarmed.  It's an opportunity for them to trip on their um feet.

Be calm and rational and not only counter them but spotlight them.  Pick and choose your battles.

Study collectivism.  Learn what they think, do and say.

Let them trip up and they'll come out of the wood work and from under the bed -s-.

Don't be 'red scared'.

Sporting Purpose

Nooo, not the old antigun ploy that guns must have a 'sporting purpose'.  Nonsense of course.

I'm referring to the silliness with profootball players on their knees in some supposed solidarity against white oppression.  Oh yes, they have a right to protest but not on the firm's time.

It is a twofold attempt to divide and conquer.  It sets blacks against whites and seeks to further attack and compromise/defeat President Trump.  Emphasis is on attempt

Those who think for themselves don't buy the crappola.  Many of them are prosports aficionados.  Personally I'm not.  But I join them in castigating and calling out/boycotting the product they chose to consume.

It isn't just collectivist baloney refuted.  It is specifically neocon manipulation which seeks unquestioning followers as well.

I never have cared personally for team sports.  Played 'em in school gym classes, but that's it.  Fine if you do and participate. 

I was offered a team position in high school football.  I politely declined for two reasons.  One, I simply didn't care for it.  Two, my Dad was ill and a lot of my time was taken up with home care.  I pursued then, as now sports/activities which appealed to me.

Hunting, fishing, hiking, weightlifting, MMA, firearms kept me agile and busy.  Still does.

If you participate either as a player or observer, knock yourself out.  But don't politicize.  Do that off the field or away from the TV.  It's cultural Marxism now on display.  Free speech according to collectivists is what they want and no one else.

Unfortunately sports are easily manipulated either as an opiate or a propaganda method.

Gone is decency and competition.  It is replaced by greed and corruption.

Blacks and whites have come a long way.  We are uniting.  Most people at least live and let live if not mingle.  Sure there are separatists and hatemongers.  And they are unleashed by those who would be our masters. to destabilize/subvert.

Kneeling is submission.  Only in prayer is it appropriate. 

To what do you kneel and to what do you owe allegiance?

I'm an American.  I stand.

Better Republic

Bigger is not better.  Though things have kept getting bigger.  We all know the story of big gov.  I will not repeat the oft refrained refs. I'm most interested in truly making things better.

A better Republic.  Steps toward Restoring same.  I believe, with hit and miss, trial and error, we are achieving that now.  It's not easy and the demos/neocons/collectivists are fighting tooth and nail to stop it.

President Trump is eliminating his predecessor's marxist rot with refreshed Liberty.  Some promises are being kept and others either delayed, thwarted or obscured.  He is only the spearhead.  We must do our part.

That does entail not just voting the rascals out (Quigley), but voting in proFreedom/Constitution candidates.  Let's give him a clear Senate majority.  Scrupulous supervision lest voter fraud occurs, is a must.  Same for the House, state and local elections as well.

Better demands we observe and speak up when continued affronts and violations happen.  They are legion but that just makes it more compelling.  We stop or reverse what we can and take note of everything, for eventually we will achieve our goal of Restoration.

As I say bit by bit we counter and replace because the deterioration has taken a long time.

I know this may seem redundant to many of you.  And many of you are doing precisely what I'm talking about.  Yet, there are so many we need to reach, to kindle 'brushfires of Freedom' in their minds.

Don't be deterred by the enemy.  They are getting livelier, bolder and more vicious.  This indicates they believe they can entrap us and/or they see we are gaining ground.  Let them manipulate ans spew.  We counter them and proactively take more high ground.

Speak truthfully, don't be baited.  When sources are cited counter them.  When declaring truth, citing one's own sources should be done, keeping in mind the enemy will ridicule them and say they are irrelevant.  Go on and don't debate the trolls and naysayers.  You can never reach them.  But someone else may notice your calm yet passionate declaration of Freedom facts.

Study Saul Alinsky's Rules For Radicals.  Use it against them.  They boil when that happens.

In light of this, don't feed the trolls.  They want to discredit you and be noticed.  Use their tactics against them.

Many factors lead to a better Republic.  And don't kid yourself, it is war of a kind.  We have all the boxes. 

Battles might be won or lost.  Learn from both.  Be prepared for everything but make sure when it comes down to it that you do not start any fight.  But as my Dad Brother and his ROTC Sergeants said, make damn sure you finish them.

It will be as painful and unpleasant as it was round 1776.  Maybe, in spite of modernity, it might be worse because of that.  It'll take a mighty effort to shake out and loose.  All my hopes, dreams and prayers are for victory.

It is NOT antigov.  It is proLiberty. 

Better is smaller, especially Fed.  The true power resides in the states.  Yet beware and trim them down too. 

Remember, as with a wound, a cyst etc, there is usually pain, then soreness, then scars.  Don't forget any of it.  I'd rather have scars than medals.

So 'get better' is not just a cliché we say when someone is sick.  It is the defining time when there could be flare ups after even routine healing.

Don't be too satisfied.  Not sure there is a best.

Better is the road to becoming-again.

''There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures.''  Brutus to Cassius in Julius Caesar

Appropriate re the tragedy of Houston?  Remember the Chinese symbol for crisis.  
There are 2 signs:  Danger and Opportunity.  So it always is.

Much heroism, true bravery, has evidenced these last few days.  There is no philosophizing no debate.  There is no time to politicize.  It is time to do.

Our enemies are very busy.  They manipulate the crisis and continue to demonize President Trump and thus all of us who seek to Restore the Republic.

Know your enemy.  Study Saul Alinsky's Rules For Radicals.  It will clue you in on collectivist methods.

Many have lost all.  Many are risking all to help them.

Oathkeepers is organizing, as are many more.

Places you might see to help.

This is real catastrophe and I think we can all help in some way.

It is showing America and the world what we are made of.

And those naysayers, seditionists, thugs are left in the wake.

Sure there is some looting and even gunfire against rescuers.  So we don't let that stop us.

But, most of all, people shine doing right.

So donate, pray, inspire or go there to help.

Time and tide wait for no man.

Beta Waving

Trendy talking point.  Latest 'psych' term to go popular.

It can mean test products or coming in second.

In a pack animal environment, beta is second to alpha.

Now we have the pop culture term 'beta male'.  The description includes terms like unremarkable, lacking charisma, careful etc.  He wants to be right and popular.  Very hard to do when unremarkable.  They may range from subservient to 'not afraid of strong women'.  They seek approval.  He's a 'nice guy'.

Too broad a brush?  All I can tell you is an alpha is discretionary.  When to move, when to wait etc.  They don't care if they are liked when it comes to decisions.  Doing what needs to be done.  It takes calculation not hesitancy.  If you snooze you lose.

Yet there are exceptions, or perhaps nuances.  Perfection?  Everything in place?  Well Alphas go from something to something else.  One thing may not work, so they go with an alternative.  They do not keep repeating, searching for the same result.

Betas get upset when challenged.  Alphas stay passionate on the point.  Be sure you're right then go ahead. 

Betas make a mistake and excuse or cover up.  Alphas learn from mistakes.

Betas avoid, secondhand.  Alphas confront, firsthand.  Imagine for instance if the Founders had done the former instead of the latter. 

Thus, betas snipe disagreement.  Alphas passionately argue.

Balancing head and heart.  Can a petulant child do so?  Or can an experienced, by trial and error adult do so?

Some people are leaders.  Some are followers.  But each is the sum of the whole.  A good leader values and relies on the input of others.  Many of them are leadership capable when necessary.

Some are petty dictators who claim they know when they actually steal from others.

There is a defining energy which divides the sheep from the goats.

Reasonable or resolve?

Monday, August 28, 2017


Much used and misused, piquantly these days.

It's most often used to describe hostile initiation.  It is also defined by liberals to demonize alpha behavior.  There will be more on that soon.  Nonetheless, aggression needs to be examined more fully.

Self defense.  It is counter aggressive as it were.  One has to be prepared to, shall we say, whup a$$.

Violence begets violence?  Col. Jeff Cooper said, ''I certainly hope so''.  He meant we need to counter tit for tat. You cannot reason with aggressive people, especially criminals.  I include political thugs of course.  You might retreat and maybe temporarily allay a violent situation.  But it will follow these days and catch up.

Learn self defense in words and deed.  This includes proclaiming the truth about Freedom/Liberty and its enemy, collectivism.  Bit by bit counter darkness with Light.

Learn self defense with martial arts both unarmed and armed.  There are many methods.  Find what works for you.

A long story short, I'll tell you what my Dad, Brother, his ROTC Sergeants etal said.

Don't start a fight, but sure as hell finish it.

As Mike Vanderboegh said, ''No Fort Sumters''.

Perry Carter

Perry is my oldest friend.  While some have turned their backs and betrayed, Perry has remained.

That being said, we've had a habit of staying out of touch at times in recent years.  One or the other of us usually calls the other.  Not lately.

Perry suffered a stroke a while back.  It affected his speech and memory,

Our conversations continued and I listened closely as his speech was labored, not at all the robust preacher/professor he was.

We met in the same college class and hit it off.  History, religious and military, a love of language and a calling to help others cemented the bond. 

Our lives frequently crisscrossed, with church, family and a passion to help others help themselves.  Not 'to' but 'from' poverty and despair.

It's hard to put in words what is engraved on the heart and mind.

He encouraged me and I got him to smile.  Tough times were easier with a friend like him.

My daughter and his kids played together.  No guile or pc baloney.  Just honest love and caring.

We gathered food from stores and distributed it to the needy.  Long before 'official' orgs did this.  We initiated pantries in many churches.

We both preached that faith is to be lived, that the orgs were there but the people meant more.

We both had an ear for those in trouble.  We reached out to kids and mentored where we could.

This gives you an idea of the kind of man Perry is.  He worked hard, achieved a Doctorate in Education but always took care of his kids.

I will update when I know more.

Blue Meanies

Indianapolis is not a sanctuary city.  I'm sure Mayor Joe Hogsett (may he be voted out) might like that in his zeal to make Indy another blue Democratic city.  But state law prohibits it.  There are some blue spots up near Chicago of course.  It's kind of like an infection.  And there is an infusion of liberals into Indy. 

Neighborhood associations can be clubs which require adherence to rules in a particular community.  No probs so far but I'll let you know when I move.

A lot of the liberal garbage circles and falls short of what they would like.  They will keep trying.  We must be proactive and never stop protecting Freedom. 

Some claim we are already a Demo cess pool.  Not yet but reiterating the above we must always be vigilant.  That's history.

Taxation is one of the tools.  Always has been.  Look at ACA and property taxes.  Financial control.

Fear plays a part.  And there are those who prefer to be controlled.

There are those who bully ordinances, rules, laws into position.  Sometimes they get into majority by social guile, those moving here both legally and otherwise.  They care not one whit for minorities unless they are manipulated.

Remember one other thing.

When they came up with the colors depicting conservative/liberal red was the original liberal hue.  That faux pas changed fast when the lefties/collectivists realized it pinpointed their real intent.

Saturday, July 29, 2017


Despite all the criticism, they don't care.  So many of us loathe them, but we don't matter for we are just peons to them.  So they think.

Call em liberal progressive collectivist democrat neocon, the people or creatures who oppose decency, humanity, Restoring the Republic are haughty and care only what their masters think.

I call it a lowerarchy, rather like hell.

They actually think they're entitled and are better than we are.  We, the socalled masses, common people or the much overused 'great unwashed' are cattle and cannon fodder to them.

Often elected 'officials', they forgot or don't care that it is we the people who put them in office.  Of course, some get shoed in mostly by voter fraud.  You know who.  I tire of there treacherous names.

They seem to be above the law.  They get away literally with murder and so much more including child rape. 

Many are spiritually dark too.  Kind of goes hand in claw.

Well you and I know we are anything but common.  We are each sovereign beings created in the image of God. 

This neotyranny is just the same as the old.  They think old money and ancient tendrils will wrap the world in a new matrix.  It could.

But their arrogance is actually limited.  While they control many they do not control all.

They ignore us until someone becomes an annoyance.  Then that someone either gets bribed, suborned or killed.

They overlook derision unless it is directed in a concentrated form.  Psychopaths hate that kind of attention.

Now we have a chance to keep exposing them and rocking their little fiefdom.  The Great Experiment was a direct attack on them.  No wonder they tried, even before 1776, to destroy it.  They shall not.

Shine the light and sound the trumpet.  The more the merrier.

Their uncaring is their undoing.

Friday, July 28, 2017


Well, ahem, it has many nuances.

Reach out and touch someone can mean that, as it says or can mean the motto of the sniper.

Call a friend, family member, associate.

Romantic, erotic, familial or just a nudge to get past a place.

Touched by an angel even.

Reminds me of the series that was popular late 90s early 2000s.

Kinda schmalzy series with Roma Downey (damn good actress and hell of a gal) as Monica 'an angel of the Lord' sent to help folks in various stages of life, with commensurate lessons to be learned in each episode.

Pretty radical programming for network tv?

Yes and no.

Religion is the opiate of the people said Lenin. I agree. WOW!!!

If people relegate themselves to blindly following and not doing, if they don't think for themselves, if they think they are not involved and all is 'left to God', then yes, it is an opiate.

Now 7 years after I wrote the above, let me just say touch.

Set brushfires of Freedom in the minds of people.

Get them to think for themselves.

I'm a broken record.  But I'm not beating a dead horse.

I save a great deal of what I write and archive a lot of others' writings, including historical documents.  This is disbursed and necessary with the rewriting of history by collectivists.

So call it rehash, fry it up and slap an egg on it.  Season it with Liberty and serve.

Let your touch be light but firm and leave those touched with a feeling of opening a window and letting the fresh air inside.

Or Hollyweird, Horrorwood, Hellywood etc.  It is quite a collection of oddities, many evil some just eccentric.

All cities have this but because of showbiz, it's most evident there.

No doubt the loudmouth collectivists control a great deal od Tinseltown.  But not all.  And so many crew, and other branches including actors are Freedom minded.  Don't throw the baby out with the bath.

The collectivists try to make it look like all are like them.  Lies and half truths.  There are many identifiable Liberty loving and espousing people in the Industry and they go about the work of Freedom, some openly, others covert.

There are those who are well placed and thus speak and act openly.  They don't need the machine or the machine counts bucks.  Some are quiet because they are lower on the totem pole. and some have suffered.

So when folks call for eradicating Hollywood, they would take out the good with the bad.

Just be selective.  Pick and choose, Think for yourselves.

Uphold the good in showbiz.  Eschew the bad.

I know people become frustrated and want a cure all.  Life is more textured.

Naturally the bad hides among the good or at least hopes the good keeps destruction away.  Sound like terrorists huh?

Keep supporting the good.  The bad has suffered and if we keep it up will be defeated.

Someone I know is moving to Hollywood.  I'm not gonna miss her.  Why?  She's not disappearing.

People move for all kinds of reasons.  She has hers and it's none of my business.

People are more available than ever.  If they switch from 10 miles to 2,000 miles, they are still accessible.

We miss usually what we either cannot have anymore or are transitioning.  I believe we at least have memories of those passed, if not spirit.  It's the physical, touch and sight we miss.

Memory is why love never dies along with spirit. 

Of course miss can refer to miss the mark, an archery term applied to a kind of sin in the Bible.

We fall short, zig when we should zag or flub our dubs.  We learn and do better.

Perfect your aim -s-.

I missed meeting a certain actor.  The opportunity arose to meet again and it worked.

OTOH there are times we don't miss anything. Better to associate or do otherwise.

And sometimes we don't miss a thing aka hit the mark every time.

Am I missing something or are we still working on Restoring the Republic?

Reread the above lol.

A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. Samuel Adams

It is in the interest of tyrants to reduce the people to ignorance and vice. For they cannot live in any country where virtue and knowledge prevail.  Samuel Adams

Quite an upswing in bad manners to say the least.  And lack of virtue, well that speaks for itself.

There is rot from within.  Standard collectivist tactic.  Subversion.  Dissolution.

If we loose our moorings we become rudderless and easy prey for those who seek to control.

These days there is a downswing with some.  The behavior is at least psychopathic and at worst demonic.  It is a prelude to war.  Then again there has always been a war, first in heaven now here.

Do not despair.  Do not give up.  And do not be afraid.  We beat the enemy this way.

Don't give them what they want.  Give them what we want.

Self inflicted fatality.  So many nuances.

I was teaching a Sunday school class with junior high age kids.  One of them asked if people who commit suicide go to hell.

Kids ask tough questions.  And they should.  I thought a moment and said it would depend.  It was taught taking one's life was a sin.  I had no black and white answer.  Maybe that's wishy washy.  Maybe not.  I'll leave it up to God.

Perhaps I shouldn't delineate but say a Hitler kills himself.  Guilty of great evil, he eliminates capture but I believe plunged right into hell.

Pedro Armendariz killed himself.   Wracked with pain of terminal cancer, he finished his work on From Russia With Love and shot himself in the hospital.  His death would have been even more slow and painful.  He was spared more pain and his family spared the rest of his deterioration.  Tough call?

And as for current trends, I believe people are left without coping skills, along with little or no thinking skills.  Or no one stepped in to help for many reasons.

I've counseled potential suicides and also those left after an act.  I let them do most of the talking and listened.  Listened.  I guided them to think for themselves in order to get better.

Nations commit suicide.  They give slowly up.  Then they capitulate.  Look at Europe particularly.

Different kettle of fish.  Yes but they lose their way by subversion, giving up.

All I can say is listen and do what we can to save lives.

I'll take you on a literary trip in a minute.

First, I want to reiterate there is always the spiritual along with all else.  I believe it and in my own way know it.

Body.  The physical body, our temp homes.

Mind.  Our capacity to think, reason and be who we are in this life.

Psyche.  That which comes from God, from without and within.

Spirit.  That which animates, which is immortal.  Our core.

What follows you don't have to believe.  Just think about it.

Before there were planets, stars, matter, there was God/Spirit.

God created the angels/spirits, then humans etc.

The top angel became prideful and thought it could be over God.  It convinced a third of the angels, however many that were to follow it.  There was a war and the fallen were defeated and cast out of heaven.

The fallen refused to help humans and wouldn't serve them.  It forgot we are to serve one another.

That fallen nature pursued humans.  Pride always has and always will come before the fall.

In the human realm, it has been a constant battle between Liberty re God and the Light versus tyranny re the fallen and darkness.

There have been various manifestations of each.

The quintessential polarization is our Republic vs collectivism.

We are sovereign beings who unite for the common good.  Our enemies shun individualism and all work toward leaders and the state.

Death and destruction plague us as we battle through the ages. 

Selfish inward turned people use religion as a bludgeon to forge tyranny.  It is the antithesis of faith as a way of life.  Love vs hate. 

They are two sides of the same coin.  Yes we should hate what is evil.  No we mustn't let hate control us.  We must balance love and hate as we do head and heart.

This isn't complete but it is a palette for a portrait.

I'll let you figure the rest out.  I honor your free will.

Child Rape

It cannot be ignored.  I hope it haunts people until they face it.

It is NOT love.  It is NOT an alternative lifestyle.  It is NOT mental illness.  It IS evil.

And it is more intense and complicated than a stranger in the bushes or a 'weird' relative.  It is everywhere and child rapists come from all economic/social levels.

It is a cabal.  While there are individual rapists and even loose subscribers/collectors of pornographic materials involving children, there are many who do 'stick together'.  It is an association of convenience and most wouldn't hesitate to throw another under the bus to survive.  It can be a network of power.

These aberrations seek power from fear and robbing kids of innocence.  They choose to steal and destroy.

Helping kids come back, survive, triumph is a rough row to hoe.  But it is NOT impossible.  And it is what's right.

Then some are deprived of life completely.  Pray for their immortal spirits.

I needn't go on and on.  As always, research and associate with those who also seek justice and healing.

It is not stasilike to discover child rapists and finally stop them.  Beware though of those who use this as an excuse to mark us all with the end line being total observation/control of all.

And further beware of the child rapists themselves.  The higher you go, the more connected are the procurers and rapists, the 'Renfields' and 'Draculas' as it were.  They are wealthy and powerful. They are capable of destroying many who pursue them. See what connects and be stealthy, trusting only those who truly seek justice and liberation.

Believe it or not, one of the main reasons President Trump is being opposed and virulently so, is because his Justice Department is nabbing child rapists and rescuing kids.  Evil does not just fold.  It fights viciously and perniciously to maintain and spread its filth.  And believe it 'liberally' (sic) applies the Alinskyan rules.

Study the enemy, though it is heartbreaking and demoralizing.  Be tough and know it's right to seek out and destroy evil.

The rapists etal want us to give up, to be hopeless.  They seek to appear stronger and invincible.  They are NOT. They ARE cunning and use all the tricks and resources at all levels to hide and counterattack.

Face it and do something, whatever you can.

Many hands make lighter work.

We shall see about spiritual connection specifically tomorrow.

Dixie reminds me/us that history is being lost/rewritten.  I urge you to preserve it.

There are systematic alterations even erasures judging by current textbooks.  I suggest people collect books, amateur historians if you will.  Scour the internet for facts.. Keep looking, for some things disappear.

Also beware anything with an opinion unless it is stated as such.  Argue for a view.  Debate is healthy if done by fair balanced people.  Beware of collectivist revisionism.  It is easy to spot and entails demonization of Western society.  Study history warts and all.  Do we not learn from our mistakes?  Hmmm?

Collectiism will not tolerate discussion.  Its lies and half truths are accepted as the only way.  Not so in honest historical study.  There is room for different views.  Mike Vanderboegh and I disagreed on certain aspects of history.  But we were firm in our allegiance to the Republic and Freedom.

If not already, become collectors, as I said before.  Store your history texts somewhere safe.  Scan the net and put books/papers/treatises on disc/flashdrive etc.  I suggest you disburse/distribute some just in case. It's common tyrannical practice to burn books, remove statues etc.  At least get pics of statues.  Or if you have the means, save them if they are being disposed of.  The same can be said about guns or anything not in the falsified collectivist matrix.

Share knowledge.  Teach.  Learn.

Cultural Marxism is in high gear.

While Trump etal are attempting to slowly turn the tide of globalism from destroying our Republic, our enemies, in the form of most Democrats, neocons/rinos and assorted collectivists seek to undo him and continue on the course to a one world of slavery.  It is pernicious and a cancer of the mind and spirit.

Cultural Marxism is an assault from all sides, multileveled.  Its goal is to rewrite society in a collectivist matrix.  Take Sovietism as an example or 1984.  The State is mom and pop.  It controls from cradle to grave.  Put your mind on hold and do what you're told.

Be observant.  Whether you have kids or not, schools are bellwethers for this threat to humanity.  And after the drones are suitably brainwashed, then it rolls into politics.

It is Memorial Day weekend.  We remember those who fought for the Republic and paid the ultimate price.  It has also grown to include all military who cross over.  And for some, it engenders memories of family times.

Dixie is a nickname for the American South.  Most of it decided Constitutionally to leave the US and establish a separate country called the Confederate States.

Much debate can be made about slavery and its significance to the ensuing war.  Of course it was wrong, but I suggest a thorough study/examination of ALL the reasons for what happened.  As with most things there are textures to all of it.  And significantly slavery is worse than ever.

What should be a red flag, don't pardon the pun, is the removal of Confederate flags and statues.  It is nothing more than history erasure.  And if we look closely, most do not want it.

It is American history, warts and all.  These people were Americans and deserve recognition for dying in battle just like the North and All Americans.

If there is something you don't like, don't hide it.  Present it and study it.

On this Memorial Day, I remember Robert E. Lee as much as any other American soldier.

We could use a Lee now.

I promised a post on spirit and I will deliver.  This is just to reaffirm that.

Body, mind Psyche, spirit. 

Body is physical our bods.

Mind is who we are in this life, thoughts, meanings,all encompassing.

Psyche is that which is from God.  It comes from the outside but inside too.

Spirit is the eternal us.  It is what motivates, makes happen.

The invisible is made visible.

Shed light on the noon day devils and I promise more soon.

Fan Dots

Ever go to a site and have your mouse arrow get surrounded by a cluster of dots or some mobile emojilike images?  Moveit and the arrow gets chased and resurrounded.  Or, if you run the pointer offscreen, the dots mass, waiting for the reappearance?

Fans can be that way.  Followers of many stripes are the same.  They will pursue the object of their attention almost like lemmings, heedless of consequences, good or bad.

Washington or George III, JFK or Khrushchev, Churchill or Hitler and on and on, some people prefer to let the leader do the work, weather for weal or woe.

Following isn't necessarily bad.  We look to leaders to lead.  It's how and why etc.  Just don't let them do your thinking for you.  Know what they do and then decide for yourselves.

Beware the cult of personality.  It is often the grist of totalitarians/collectivists.  And when the reps of Freedom lead, remember they should be demanding you do your part.

A good leader is a catalyst.  And they don't mind criticism.  Even the slings and arrows of collectivist subversion only serve to highlight the intent to promote Liberty by those lambasted.

We will never all agree even in the Republic.  But we are set up to follow and be leaders ourselves.  don't let anyone bamboozle you.

For we are our own best fans.  And we seek leaders who know this.  The power is ours.

Jump.  How high or why?

E Pluribus Unum is not mindless dots.  It is mindful unity.

While there might be a small percentage of gays etc, there is a concerted effort to condition people.  Oh oh.  Guess I'm stepping in it huh?  Far as I'm concerned, only with collectivists.

I believe there is a mixture of nature and nurture.  There are indications some may have predisposition.  However, there are many subtle conditioners, either deliberate or happenstance, that contribute to the way we picture ourselves.

Well, we could debate all this til we're blue in the face.  And all I have to say (well not all lol) is if seduction into something, whether slow or fast, is present, then it should be condemned by EVERYONE of conscience.

Sexuality aside as it were, there is a deliberate effort to blur lines, whether moral relativism or internationalism.  The more doubt, the more confusion and the more easily controlled.

For decades now, American history has been watered down and redirected, edging toward demonization of the Founders and other groups in time, to fashion  events as nothing special, even wrong. 

The economy has been long skewed, with creeping socialism and galloping crony capitalism (that which uses capitalism for the benefit of the few instead of for all) eat the substance of work and business.

Families are disseminated and alienated, leaving many at the mercy of the state.

Bit by bit, the Republic and the world crumbles.

Maybe I was a weird kid.  I'd take a glass of milk and pour a heaping spoonful of Quik on top.  Then, instead of stirring, I'd watch the particles slowly tumble and sink.  Only when It was gone would I stir.  Little was left to blend.

So it is with our Republic.  We slowly tumble til those watching have only to wait, then install the control method.

Is it too late?  Are we being pushed/force fed til we are absorbed?

With what do you identify?  Are you holding fast to history, unadulterated by collectivist putrefaction?  Are you reaching out to something, anything like a last gasp?  Or are you breathing the air of Freedom?

Are you reversing, bit by bit, the corrosion inflicted on the Republic.  Will it ever be a place where we live, albeit with differences, in the common cause of Liberty? 

Are you caving to the collectivist politicians, liberal democrats and neocon republicans, as they play yin/yang, singsonging us into wars, not to preserve Freedom, but to keep our minds off enslavement, 1984 style? 

Are you thinking for yourselves, preferring not to hate or lie and hold the lamp of Liberty high, exposing the machinations described?

Are you just taking what's shoveled out?

Are you digging, willing to accept a total picture?

Do you ever try to force your ways on others?

Or do you hold out for discussion? 

Do you expect others to defend you?

Or are you prepared to defend yourselves?

With whom or what do YOU identify?

Every Good Boy Deserves Favor. 

It's a mnemonic used by music students to remember notes on the lines of the treble clef.

It's also a play by Tom Stoppard about Soviet imprisonment of dissidents in mental hospitals, with the claim their opposition to collectivism is a mental illness.

I saw it in Chicago with Patrick Stewart and several fellow cast members of Star Trek TNG.  Pretty good.  It also reminds me that actors play parts.  They may or may not be Freedom minded.  It's remarkable how liberals play Liberty oriented people and themes, yet remain short sighted concerning ways and means. 

So, there are some trying to accrue 'evidence' that President Trump is unbalanced mentally..  They hope to tweak the 25th Amendment to oust him as unfit.  Since impeachment is unlikely, it's the best they can come up with short of assassination.  Those are the usual options for globalists/collectivists.  Bribe, discredit, kill.

Please pray and think about President Trump's safety and actually for all of us who seek to restore the Republic.

Most of it boils down to the old collectivist method of declaring orange is blue or black is white.  And that old Alinskyan refined projection/point the finger, which drapes an opponent with those flaws/crimes for which the accusers are guilty/responsible. 

The power structure will fight tooth and nail to resist giving up that which has been stolen from the People.  The broken record of globalism drawing us into one world where we become collectivist automatons is very real.  Those who manipulate will retain their wealth and control, unless we retain and strengthen our Freedom expressed through our Republic.

The controllers seek to destroy a sense of self/individuality.  Then they would lead us to destruction.

It isn't only the President.  All of us who seek Liberty are being accused similarly.

Don't fall for anything.  Look for the answers.  Collectivists hate that.

Projection.  Who is at last nuts?

And lever or spur and movement.  Some would say bludgeon or spearhead. Many names one goal.

Look up Hegelian Dialectic, Hegel and everything around them.

Thesis.  Antithesis.  Synthesis.

Problem.  Reaction.  Solution.

Terrorism/Economic Crisis.  Fear/Panic.  Antiterrorist/Bailout.  Results in loss of Freedom and further financial havoc for the middle class.

There is of course, a terrible Islamic terrorist threat.  It is bolstered by other collectivists.  Going after them and proactively excising them is critical.  It must be done without giving globalists ground.

Look and see who the domestic enemies are.  They are coming out of the woodwork.  Trump is a catalyst.  Hope he doesn't defeat himself.

Continue to study Alinsky's Rules For Radicals.  Know the enemy and its methods.

Study all the collectivist nuances.

Watch how illegals and refugees are used to destabilize the Republic.  Here I remind you citizenship is a PRIVILEGE not a right.  We are not a dumping ground.  We are a place for Freedom minded folks to gather for a freer better life.

In, around and under this, children are being raped.

Focus.  Dig.  Test.  And remember the intent of the Founders, for US to be individuals come together for one purpose, aka Liberty.

Boxed In

I always remember a scene in Arrival, the first episode of The Prisoner.

Number 6 is being 'processed' at the Village's Labor Exchange.

A squirrelly guy is asking him questions.  He is given a round peg.  Before him is a slot, shaped square.  He slowly places the round peg in the square hole.  It immediately closed round the peg, like a camera lens as the current number 2 chuckled.

Those who want to control us want us to fit.  There is no allowance for self determination.  They go to many lengths to try to make this certain.

Collectivists touch all aspects of life.  They attempt from early on to condition us to accept a particular story or style.  If we give in and just accept without questioning, they win.

Stylizing history, with all its trappings, is a prominent example. 

We are given certain facts, at least as far as they go, and are expected to accept them.  If this is accomplished, rewritten history can be taken as true.

This is why I encourage all to dig and search.  It seems sources are drying up.  Not completely, but accessibility is tightening.  And as you find textured detail, make note, collect and preserve it.

There is a fork in the road concerning more outre, at least to some, elements of history/technology.

One takes us down a swirling mass/mess of conspiracy fact and fiction.  Keep in mind, lies are used, but lies mixed with truth can be devastating.

This applies to technology as well.  It should serve mankind yet often is used instrumentally to control..Also, advances can be held back for most, because people get into a rut of acceptance of their 'lot'.

The other road opens us to possibilities, to dreams becoming reality.

Mind you, conspiracy is a perfectly legitimate term.   The very word has been hijacked so that people can chase their own tails  Or, we study how we are manipulated, how a cabal seeks to control.

Think and act outside the box.

“And some things that should not have been forgotten were lost. History became legend. Legend became myth. And for two and a half thousand years, the ring passed out of all knowledge.”          Galadriel in Lord of the Rings

Perspective. Never accept the status quo.  Always dig, research.  Look beyond the obvious.  That's why I encourage people to do research themselves.  I offer food for thought.  It's up to others to make the menu work.

There is great concern about child rapists.  Rightly so, we must expose and stop them, rescuing kids without panic.  I'm glad to hear of recent arrests and further exposure of the monsters.

As said, the child rapists are in all walks of life.  And many know them as family, friends and/or neighbors.  Again, this is not to  incite paranoia nor distrust.  It is wise to be cautious however.  There is, in many cases, betrayal.

Many child rapists are capable of hiding their evil.  No matter who they are, once discovered, all else is at best tarnished.  It most often destroys.

It has been brought to my attention that a person, prominent in clan affairs, is a convicted child rapist.  I was stunned.  The man has been a font of knowledge and history concerning the clan.  It has brought betrayal on several levels, as such discovery always does.

Betrayal of trust, for the kids, his family, associates and all of us who are proud of our clan, is the fallout with which we deal.

The crimes he committed are his, not anyone else's.  He alone is guilty of child rape.  We need not take the rap for him.

A clan is an umbrella.  We are all under it as members, a worldwide family.  In a family, we find many different situations.  We are not rubber stamped.  There can be quite a mix of good and evil.  And in spite of 'ties' we can choose with whom we associate. 

Once I got over the shock and actual sick feeling, I examined what this has or could do to the reputation of the clan.

Our history goes way back and can be traced to Viking/Norman roots.  There are the sociopolitical elements, with many lives and lines researched.  There are also more fantastic pieces of our genealogical puzzle.  Those have always been under attack.  Now opposition has fuel for the fire thanks to our 'wayward' criminal member.

I'm proud of our history and am related to several notables.  I've always noted those who question certain aspects of our heritage.

I have always said that no matter your genealogy, this is your life.  Today is your turn to live.  Good or bad past, we have the choice to lead/live our lives for weal or woe.

I can't walk on water nor turn it into wine.  But certain people are a gift not just to bloodlines, but to all of us.

Nothing done can assail us and succeed in stopping us unless we let them.  Morality is God's gift to the world and we choose to do right or wrong.

Get through the hurt and maintain honor, fortitude, nobility of heart; what we should be.  Help others, be there for them when evil touches.  Rescue the kids.  Stop and expose those who destroy.

For my fellow clanspeople, I suggest we live according to our motto.  Commit Thy Work To God.

Not the Confederate States.  We'll talk about that later as it's become a contentious subject and I contend it is an historical entity demonized by collectivists.

I'm talking about child sexual abuse.

It is a subject you must research yourselves.  I often encourage all to do so no matter the subject.  That way, you have the facts, can compare/contrast and see what is real and not.  As always, this is a palette for a portrait., food for thought.

There is nothing more evil.  Yes evil.  It is NOT love.  Pedophile means child lover and the term philos means dear, friendly.  Different words for different love in Greek.  Only been in use for about 100 years.

It is rationalization for maladjusted sexual feelings toward prepubescent children.  Paraphilia is sometimes used for attraction to pubescent/teenage children.

These creatures fervently believe they are right.  In my opinion, they are all psychopathic.  And of course there are varying degrees of evil.  Make no mistake, anything to do with child rape on any level is evil.

They are not all hiding in the bushes nor roving in vans.  There are organizations and 'clubs'.  And these monsters are at all levels, financially, socially, ethnically etc.

Many are organized and do indeed stick together.  They would not, of course, be beyond throwing some under the bus in order to survive.

These creatures are vicious and powerful in the highest places of life.  Cunning, they employ collectivist methods to stop those who would bring them to justice.

Learn and get the word out.  Don't jump to conclusions, but don't overlook evidence.  No witch hunters need apply.

It's horrible, devastating and soul destroying.

We must help those victimized and endangered.

Face it.  It's repulsive and evil hopes people are too turned off to take action.

Do not point fingers as do the collectivists.  Find out.
